Mid-April Birds 4-11-16

Spring migration is starting to heat up, with large numbers of orioles, and decent numbers of warblers.  The first western tanager has shown up at my feeder and is making a hog of himself. In a coupe of weeks the large fruiting mulberry tree on El Centro ave (west of Campo Street) will be covered in fruit which will attract all sorts of tanagers, grosbeaks, orioles, starlings etc.
