Sedgwick Reserve (restricted access) - Weekly Survey, Sage Thrasher

Peter Schneekloth
 

The weekly survey at Sedgwick netted a total of 47 species (list here https://ebird.org/checklist/S61230285?share=true ) with the highlight a Sage Thrasher. The Sage Thrasher was originally spotted by Fred Emerson last Friday during docent training. The bird was refound today by Marge Ericson and seen by the group present. Other highlights were a Northern Harrier, American Goldfinch and a large flock of Western Meadowlark.

We are hoping the Thrasher will stick around for the Cachuma CBC on Dec 27th, a few looks at the bird here:

Very handsome bird.  Where on the reserve was it?  Same place as previous years?

Yes.  Closer to the farm, but pretty much in the same place.
