Yesterday, 4-23-2009, Laverne and I spent the morning at Hidden Valley Lake. It 
was a beautiful day to be out birding. The migrants seem to be a little later 
this year. We did not find Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Wood Thrush or Veery. We did 
find Ovenbird, Black and White Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, 
Black-throated Green Warbler, Hooded Warbler, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, 
Blue-headed Vireo, and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. We heard a Scarlet Tanager. In 
the afternoon I went to the Pinnacle Natural Area Preserve. I found a Scarlet 
Tanager, Osprey, Red-tailed Hawk and I also found a Great Blue Heron nest with 
a heron sitting on the nest. I also saw a Common Raven fly to what I think is a 
nest but it was along distance and I did not have my scope. 
I have photos on Pbase of some of the birds seen.
