Sierra County Veery
- I looked for the Veery at the SFSU Field Campus west of Yuba Pass over the
weekend. On Saturday morning (7/20/13) at 9:20 a.m., I heard the "veer"
call twice then about 10 minutes later heard it four times more. I did not
hear the song. These calls were heard from the parking lot near the road
and then from milepost 35.46. I stayed about another hour and did not hear
the bird again. I returned Saturday evening for about 2.5 hours and then
again Sunday morning for an hour but never heard or saw anything else.
Assuming the veer call is diagnostic (it doesn't sound like any other
species that I'm familiar with), then the bird was still there Saturday
Sorry for the lateness of this post - I just got back to email access this
