      Hi, all!

      First of all, did anyone lose a green folding chair along La Posta Road?
      I've got it if you did--if no one claims it I'll bring it to the next SDFO

      Anyway, birded Cameron Valley and La Posta Road this morning; interesting
      birds included several SAGE SPARROWS along Cameron (four together at one spot,
      and near the houses one was actually singing already), singing ROADRUNNERS, a
      handful of LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCHES bouncing over on both roads, and probably
      the most unusual, a LADDER-BACKED WOODPECKER in the oak-filled "residential"
      area along La Posta about three miles north of 94 (there were Nuttall's in
      here, too)! Not sure if he was disbursing or if this is a normal transition
      area; I've never had them here before.
