Today between 1 and 2pm I managed to squeeze a little time to wander around my
house again to seek birds. It started pretty slowly (nothing hopping around in the fruiting elderberry bushes here – which is unusual this time of year). Best sighting today was finally discovering a nest hole for the acorn woodpeckers that are constantly here. I watched woodpeckers wander in and out of the hole for 20+ minutes.

Other birds sighted:

Band-tailed Pigeon 2
Turkey Vulture 2
American Crow 6
Scrub Jay 3
Lesser Goldfinch 4 (1 male, 3 female)
House Finch 2 (male + female)
Western Bluebird 2 (male + female)
Golden-crowned Sparrow 3
Dark-eyed Junco 20+
Acorn Woodpecker 3
Yellow-rumped Warbler 1
Oak Titmouse 3
White-breasted Nuthatch 2
Anna’s Hummingbird 1 female

Two days ago while driving through Grant Park I saw 2 white-tailed kites, which I rarely see down there (though I think this pair nests there because I see them regularly).
