o gloriuous woodpecker!
Well...they're not exactly Ivory-billeds but thanks to the enormous
response on our question for good stake-outs for Lewis's woodpeckers
we saw around four birds at the Del Puerto Canyon (Road), just within
1-2km (around 1 mile!) to the left on The Junction there!
Marvellous birds; two were continuously found in the same oak, just
on the road near a small grey shed -> around 1 mile to the south (San
Antonio Valley R.).
Also great -for us- were the Yellow-billed magpies with a much higher
pitched sounds then Pica pica from Europe. Two Lawrence's
goldfinches, our first Lazuli buntings.
At Pigeon Point Lighthouse we had around 20+ Marbled murrelets, best
seen few 100 meters N of the lighthouse in a small bay. Also two
Cassin's and few Rhino's. &tc!
