Oswald West State Park Bird List

The hike through the forest was a cacophony of bird song, but unfortunately I don't know all the bird songs! Here are a few I heard, but never saw:
Black-capped Chickadee
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Stellar's Jay

Birds I saw and could ID (there were plenty I couldn't):
American Robin
Anna's Hummingbird
Rufous Hummingbird
Wilson's Warbler
Hairy Woodpecker (female feeding juvenile)
Winter Wren (I think)
Violet Green Swallow
American Crow
Various Gulls
and finally cofirmed by my on-call bird expert, Laura:
Pigeon Guillemot
Pacific Slope Flycatcher (I thought it was a Western Wood Pewee)

  1. I can guarantee you you heard a Swainson's Thrush out there. An ethereal, flutelike song that seems to spiral upward. Sound familiar?
