Jacumba 4-23-13

This morning I found fewer migrants at my feeders. ¬†About 6 black-headed grosbeaks, 3 Bullock’s and 2 Hooded orioles along with a single pine siskin and male Costa’s hummer. A single Harris’ hawk was seen at the north end of town. ¬†The white-crowned sparrows have left. They had been around my feeders and brush pile consistently since last Fall. On Saturday 4-20-13 I counted 8 of them at my feeders. Likewise, there were no yellow-rumps to be seen.
