A birding day I won't forget for a long time...
It's been about 20 months since I first saw a YBM here at Del Valle. I have been on the hunt ever since with only a brief glimpse on two occasions of one flying over head.
Today, after an unsuccessful trip to Sunol, we went to Del Valle. As I pulled in the parking lot, I spotted one. I parked all weird and jumped out of my car in pursuit. I could not believe how many there were.
Birding lately has not been as fruitful or fun as past experiences...but today? I definitely got what I was looking for. I just love these birds!!
