The Loop


July Birding Hike

  Ten of us were led by Stephen Ramirez who has been leading these hikes for close to two years.
The Hunter Road trail head was a busy place early on Saturday morning as dog walkers and jogging couples were already gathering for their own foray into the Purgatory Creek Natural Area. The 7 a.m. start meant cooler temperatures rather than later in the day which nudged the century mark.
   The list of interesting bird sightings included: 
White-eyed vireo

Crested Caracara
Most sightings happened at this point on the trail 
Chimney Swift
Summer Tanager
Western Kingbird
Canyon Wren 
Black-chinned Hummingbird
Inca Dove
Couches Kingbird
Brown-headed Cowbird
Golden-fronted Woodpecker
Northern Mockingbird
White-winged dove
Northern Cardinal
Painted Bunting
