Birding Summit Ponds
The PAS fieldtrip to Summit Ponds had lots of interesting sightings. A large flock of migrating Swainson's Hawks included one dark-phase individual. A single Philadelphia Vireo was also seen feeding on an Indio Desnudo Tree. The highligt was the return of the Capped Herons: two were seen on the far shore of the pond on the right. The Boat-billed Herons were also there.
