March 15 Audubon Birdwalk at Peña Blanca
Green San Miguel
By Signe Hammer
The March Audubon birdwalk heads to Peña Blanca, a few miles past the Presa Allende, where a tree-lined stream and open farmland provide habitat for a rich variety of birds. With leaders Norman Besman, Bob Graham, Luke Rich, Mike Wheatcroft, and myself, we’ll look for such lingering winter migrants as Lark Sparrow and Wilson’s Warbler, as well as such locals as Cassin’s Kingbird, Black-backed Oriole, Loggerhead Shrike, and American Kestrel. Last year, we saw an Indigo Bunting.

The walk is open to beginning and experienced birders alike. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and a hat. Carpooling is essential, so if you have a car, please bring it. Plan to arrive at 7:45am, as we leave promptly at 8:00am. You’ll be back by about noon, with new entries for your life list and new birding friends.
