We went with Steve to Ed Levin State Park as part of a wild bird center trip -- Shrike, Meadowlark, Northern Harrier, Say's Pheobe, White-tailed Kite, Black Pheobe, Downy Woodpecker.
Then in the afternoon we went out with him privately to coyote creek riparian station and its pond -- merlin, peregrine falcon, sandpiper, shovelers, ring-billed gull, mew gull (?), meadowlark, TV, red-tailed hawk, golden-crown sparrow.
We lost our peterson's guide, but perhaps the national geographic guide is better? Bought a new binocular strap.
Spent too much time looking for relevant on-line birding resources.
