Not since the 2004-2005 season has the Roadside Hawk been seen in the Valley and now, of all places, this “along the highway dweller” was confirmed in the Frontera Audubon Thicket on Sunday a.m. Jan. 24.
Saturday, Jan. 30. Dan Jones has relocated the Roadside Hawk in the exact location it was seem 2 days prior at dusk by Bryan Zvolanek from Estero Llano Grande. Bird may have a routine…wanders around during the day, hangs out in the orchard around sunset before taking off for the Thicket to roost. At any rate, this is a very special, rarely seen bird for Frontera; we are north of its range, and everyone should take a look at it while it’s here!
Extended hours in effect at Frontera Audubon: open everyday 8a.m.- 6p.m. until further notice. Thicket locked at 4p.m. Please check in and pay your entry fee before even thinking about wandering around the grounds. We appreciate recorded names and numbers for our grant-seeking purposes, and of course we can use your fees to support the habitat (and our overhead).
