A warm and hazy morning to what would become a warmer day. An early flyby of assorted species, then mostly quiet—other than pollinators and a nice selection of dragonflies.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
