Painted Bunting/White-winged Dove

Dave Compton and I found a female Painted Bunting around 5:30 Tuesday
afternoon on Atascadero Creek. The bird ranged from about 100 to 250
meters upcreek from the small check dam which is near the end of Ward
Drive. You could also access the area by parking where South Patterson
Avenue crosses the bike path and Atascadero Creek, and walking down the
creek or along the bike path west to the dam. We also had a White-winged
Dove in the eucalyptus trees south of the creek at the dam, and several
Blue Grosbeaks and Lazuli Buntings along the creek.
