Subject: [kerncobirding] Grace's Warbler Update
I only subscribe to kerncobirding. Please pass the following information on
to other listservs including CALBIRDS, countybirders, and
central-sierra-birds. Thank you.
I drove to Chimney Creek Campground this morning specifically to see if the
Grace's Warbler was still present (it was) and to get information out
before Noon today (Thursday) so those of you who would like to incorporate
a try for this species as part of this weekend's birding excursions would
have a timely update.
I arrived at Chimney Peak Campground in far southeastern Tulare County at
8:45am. By 8:48 I heard the Grace's Warbler singing. By 8:55 I had good
looks right over my head.
I left the campground at 9:02am and arrived back at Kern River Preserve
Headquarters at 9:34am.
Depending upon how you handle the driving of dirt roads, the time for
driving from the Kern River Preserve to Chimney Creek Campground is 35
minutes to over an hour. I would say that 45 minutes to 55 minutes would be
For details, including the latest in directions/mileages and other bird
species present, please go to:
Happy & Productive Birding.
