Lassen County gyrfalcon
- I observed the same (likely) bird as previously reported by Brad
Stovall at about 10:30 AM, Monday, February 7 approximately 2.5 miles
northeast of Brad's reported location. This bird (one impressive dark
above/light below, large falcon)was between the 2 most distant
parking lots on the Fleming Unit of Honey Lake Wildlife Area and flew
towards where Brad saw it a few hours later.
However, a 2 hour search this morning by myself and another birder at
the same two Monday locations did not turn up the bird. If it is
observed again, it will be reported at Calbirds.
Visitors to the Dakin and/or Fleming Units of Honey Lake Wildlife
Area are asked to please fill out a visitor report card before
entering the area(s).
