Hi all. We had our Woodland Park Bird survey today. We saw two great horned owls (and have been seeing GHOWs pretty regularly now with sightings five out of the last six months). We had an exotic species day as well with Red-vented Bulbuls, Scaly-breasted Munia, and Monk Parakeets. Here is the full list and spreadsheet for all years. Our next walk will be on Saturday, August 31st at 7:30am.
