Evening Birding Species List | July 23, 2014
July 24, 2014
Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 6PM – 8PM
Weather: partly cloudy, some thunderstorm activity
Location: Hallam Lake
Comments: Changing weather quieted the birds at first this evening, but we were treated with rising activity as the thunderstorm passed: cedar waxwings hawking insects, kingfishers on the lakeshore, broad-tailed hummingbirds fly-catching in swarms of gnats, a close encounter with a Rufous Hummingbird, and song sparrows singing. Great evening light gave us good looks at colors in plumages. Other highlights: foraging beavers and a swimming garter snake.
