Bird Species List for Rose Canyon

These data are from a 3 mile x 3 mile square that includes Rose Canyon. We're fortunate to have at least 99 species of birds recorded in Rose Canyon! Eleven of those are on the DFG list, but fortunately for the birds most of the eleven are listed as "secure". Also, in May 2002, FRC member Gretchen Nell reported an Olive-sided Flycatcher near Genesee. That makes a total of 100 birds now for our species list!

Asterisk (*) denotes reported species observation during listed season.
