Birding at Stokes Park

The monthly birding hike was held at Stokes Park on Cape Street in San Marcos. Since it is a heavily wooded area many of the birds sighted were in the leafless trees that border the San Marcos River. The February 7th hike was notable for the sighting of a Black-throated warbler in the woods.  Absent were the expected wading birds — egrets and herons which are often sighted along this stretch of the river. Ten of us enjoyed the opportunity to bird in a different location. Colton Robbins provided the list of birds we were able to view.
