Fri, 02 Nov 2001 -- Today I spent about an hour and a half birding along
the roads of Round Valley while Jan was doing some campaigning. I found
several FERRUGINOUS HAWKS along Covelo Road near Fairbanks Road and
Wattenburg Road. I saw a PRAIRIE FALCON along Barnes Lane and MERLINS at
several locations (Dobie Lane and Covelo Road at Fairbanks Road). A
WHITE-THROATED SPARROW was among -crowned sparrows on Dobie near Fairbanks,
and there were dozens of LEWIS'S WOODPECKERS in the Valley Oaks trees along
Dobie Lane and Fairbanks Road.
Up in Laytonville there was a LEWIS'S WOODPECKER in the Valley Oaks
trees N. of the high school football field.
There were also lots of raptors in the Little Lake Valley N. of
Willits, but I didn't have a chance to look at them.
