Mountain Plovers at Montague Airport (Siskiyou County)
- Hi birders,
A group of 3 Mountain Plovers initially found 12/7/08 at the Montague Airport by a group of birders (including Steve Nelson, Jim Flett, and Ray Ekstrom) were refound today at the same location by multiple birders including me. This is just north of Montague, which is a few miles from Yreka, further north than they are usually found. Reportedly Mountain Plovers have been seen in the county about 5 different times. They will likely not remain in the area once a good snowfall comes, which was supposed to happen this weekend but so far has not.
