It’s All About The Birds

Many different species of birds have been reported on More Mesa in the past few weeks.  In addition to our year-round residents: White Tailed Kites, Red Tailed Hawks, Red Shouldered Hawks and Kestrels, winter visitors are already arriving, as evidenced by the presence of Northern Harrier, Sharp-shinned Hawk and Say’s Phoebe during the month of September. Red-winged Blackbirds frequent the west side, especially near a large bird-feeder in the garden of a home abutting More Mesa.

We truly appreciate the sightings reports provided by those of our supporters who are also bird enthusiasts.  THANKS SO MUCH!
