Bird Report – Hutopia

It was a warm day with a wind picking up at around 8am.  I camped the night at Hutopia and woke up to the sounds of a wood thrush and winter wren with far off raven calls. By the time we started our hike at 7 the wood thrush was no longer singing.  However we did hear a lot of bird song!  Not to mention some singing within our group wishing me a happy birthday!  Thanks for the birthday wishes and thanks to Marie for the extra birthday song.  I was very happy to be doing this group hike.  As Chris put it “it was a great way to start the day!”

One of the highlights were the pair of yellow bellied sapsuckers that popped out of their hole in a dead tree.  We got a very god view especially of the female.  Counting all that we could identify by sight or sound we have a list of 22 species this week.
