May 26, 2014 - La Sal Viejas

 

Early on, a Common Ground Dove was singing while being drowned out by the Great-tailed Grackle concert...

 

If you decide to do this route, this gives you an idea of what the roads look like...

 

Dry-as-a-bone La Sal Viejas along CR 30

 

Northern Bobwhite

 

   

Adult Black-throated Sparrow; I had a juvenile earlier on, so maybe they're breeding in here?? 

 

 

Baby Bewick's Wren in a cactus patch towards the south end of CR 30

 

A little pond just north of SR 183 had a late Shoveler hanging with a couple of Fulvous Whistling Ducks.

 

A Bronzed Cowbird (right) poses in a sorghum/sunflower field with a Red-winged Blackbird.

 

A Lark Sparrow where I got lost in a gas well turnaround...

 

A canal along CR 105 that had lots of Cave Swallows nesting underneath the bridge.

 

The road to the La Sal Viejas trailhead on the far eastern edge of the refuge.
