Your friend mentioned he was coming out from Brunswick to visit you
this month. I was talking to him about birding locales in that area
at the time. I'd love to show you some of the wanted species in and
around Sonoma county by since getting back from FLETC I haven't had
time to bird my own garden.
I noted that you omitted Blue Grouse from the list, does he have that
one already? If not Kings Ridge Rd out of Cazadero is a pretty
reliable place. The area is also potentially good for Vaux and maybe
the vireos... although I have to admit that I've never birded for
passerines up there at this time of year.
Great Grey ought to be findable at Ackerson (sp?) Meadow.... off of
the road to Hetch Hetchy ...the last left turn from hiway 120 before
you get to Yosemite.
A good number of the species you seek are fairly reliable in NE
Calif..... Lassen, Eagle Lake, Susanville, Honey Lake areas.... are
you thinking of going in that direction at all? If so I can provide
more specific information.
BTW I'm Gerry Mugele from Glen Ellen. If you're inclined, you may
call my cell at 707 322-5301.
Good luck out there and please say Hi and thanks for the help finding
the Red-Cockaded etc. Never did find a blasted Painted Bunting but
discovered a colony of Grey Kingbirds which was a very big surprise.
