Schulle Canyon birding hike

  We searched for birds on a cold, wet morning in Schulle Canyon. Colton Robbins was the birding guide and knows the call of many different birds. As the morning warmed-up we started to see more of the birds including a pair of Hermit Thrushes chasing each other through the tree limbs and later on the trail. The usual suspects were out and about but we also saw two different species of Kinglets and a Blue-headed Vireo.
   Colton or Stephen Ramirez lead the monthly birding hikes on the first Saturday of each month through one of the San Marcos natural areas or along the river parks. Contact Stephen at to get on the eMail list for the next hike. Listing of birds seen can be found on eBird or reading previous articles in the LOOP.  –LJ
