Ovenbird at Scorpion Campground-Santa Cruz Island

Aaron Kreisberg

Just after 5 this evening there was an ovenbird present at the top of the lower loop of Scorpion Campground on Santa Cruz Island. It was thrush like warbler with a prominent eyering, striped head, and streaked breast. It was moving between the reserved campsite adjacent to the fig trees and the area near the toliets where the trail heads to Cavern point.

Overall an active day for birds here today with a unidentified falcon zooming by the kayak conscession storefront and a Merlin present around the beach area flying around and into vegetation downslope from the road to Smuggler's Cove.
