Good birds @ Walnut Canyon Lakes
Birding at the Walnut Canyon Lakes was good, along FR301 just east of Continental CC, 5/25 with 1 hr at noon and 5/26 with 2 hrs morning. BEST birds:

1 Peregrine sitting in snag and flying
2 Osprey overhead with intent to fish
1 Zone-tailed Hawk flying overhead twice & over north ridge
1 Black-crowned Night-Heron flushed from cattails
1 Yellow Warbler flitting in wind-fallen tree half in the water
1 Western Wood-Pewee flycatching from same tree
1,000 (est) swallows catching insects low & high over ponds
Four species: Barn, Violet-green, No. Rough-winged & Cliff.
1 Hepatic Tanager, female, more easterly along FR301.


Another birder told me this morning that he had seen a Green Heron and Bald Eagle early on Sun 25th at the ponds.
