THE PLACE IS HOPPING!

A lot has been happening at Frontera.  If you have driven past in the last two weeks, you probably noticed the workers repainting the Skaggs House.  We had a very successful Birdathon on April 5th with the total number of species seen coming in at 212.

The birds are here.  A Painted Bunting was recorded on the 8th and we have a nesting Clay-colored Thrush.  And of course plenty of Chachalacas and Green Jays and Inca Doves.

One of our wonderful members, William B. (Bill) Kennedy, has been dropping by almost on a daily basis taking great pictures and videos.  Here is one of his photos.

Bill was able to get a few feet away from this lovely dove as it perched on the boardwalk railing.

 

But there are butterflies here, too.  Mike Rickard got this photo of a Two-barred Flasher on April 11th.

The weather is wonderful and it is a great day for a walk in the Thicket!
