No rarities to report but birds passing through far outnumbered the locals on a very birdy afternoon walk along the Reservoir Woods path in Roseville. White-Throated Sparrows were abundant all along the trail, many seen, many more heard. Golden-Crowned Kinglets were also numerous and close with a respectable scattering of Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Yellow-Rumped Warblers and Brown Creepers also present. We checked out what was causing great consternation to a group of kinglets and chickadees and saw a Broad-Winged Hawk flying low over the big pines just west of Dale St.
You can access the Reservoir Woods Trail at the Woodview Open Space parking lot on Larpenteur Ave. just east of Dale St. It extends west to Victoria Ave, a distance of 1.5 miles one way.
