Today, Wed. Jan 16, I biked (great way to bird a quiet road) the
length of Reynolds Hwy. (just north of Willits) and had excellent
close views of an adult Rough-legged Hawk in the area near the Little
Lake Valley Ranch (1/2 mile east of Hwy 101). At one point, in moving
farther east from this spot, the hawk apparently entered the no-fly
zone of a White-tailed Kite which repeatedly dive bombed it back into
its own territory. Also of note was a Say's Phoebe at the Summer
Breeze Goat Ranch. No eagle or Ferruginous Hawk, though. Darn! Too
bad there's not some public access to the great looking marshy
habitat in the middle of Little Lake Valley (about 1/2 mile+ south &
west of Reynolds Hwy.).
