I've returned from 5 days camping,26-20 June, at Sugar
Pine State Park, Lake Tahoe, CA. Highlights included:
White-headed Woodpecker the most common woodpecker(a
cavity tree at south end mansion/grass area); seven
species of woodpeckers. 4 pairs of Black-backed
Woodpeckers at various locations in the state park, no Red
Crossbills detected, Mountain Quail were much further up
General Ck watershed this year (heard only, as in the
past). One female AMERICAN REDSTART foraging in
alder/willow riparian, but was consuming, so don't think
it was a nester. Location was at first bridge above
campground on General Ck. Fox Sparrow, Western Tanager,
and Nashville Warbler also very common.
