The Golden Crowned Warbler is still here!

We have been extremely lucky to have the Golden-crowned Warbler at Frontera these last couple of months. This photo is courtesy of Joe & Judy Gabriel who visited us last week. It’s been wonderful to meet so many people from all over and share in their excitement. The Warbler is still being seen at Frontera Audubon. Our visitors spotted it today along the trail at the first left curve. We will be happy to point you in the right direction!

I just want to give a shout out to the Delesantro’s who are doing their Big Year on a Budget. Michael and Renee have been posting their adventures up on their blog with some truly brilliant photos. I hope you check out their blog and follow along! Here is their posting from a few weeks ago when they saw the Golden Crowned Warbler at Frontera Audubon:
