Recent Bird Sightings
There is a Tricolored Heron at Salt Creek today, North End of the Salton Sea (NESS). The Purple Martins (adults with young) continue to be seen in Garner Valley - along Highway 74 on the left just after the turnoff to Lake Hemet and just before the turnoff to Hurkey Creek Campground. As you drive along Hwy. 74, look for a tall, dead, snag with holes near the top. Park at the Lake Hemet Road (NOT the Lake Hemet store) turnoff and carefully walk up Hwy. 74 toward Hurkey Creek Campground less than one tenth of a mile. Western Bluebirds were seen flying over the Living Desert today. Evidence of Common Poorwill found in a Palm Desert and a Barstow backyard this week. They may be on the move.
