      > I relocated the GYRFALCON (gray phase juvie) found yesterday by Ken Irwin at the mouth of Redwood Creek at 2:35 today 9/30/11. We were at the west end of the fisherman's access rd on the north bank of Redwood Creek when it flew 90' from us across the estuary, perched briefly, then flew off to the north along the beach. We'd stopped there at 9:30 this morning, but no gulls were roosting on the spit & no Gyr. A rough rule of thumb might be: if no roosting gulls, one might have to fan out abit further afield (Daryl Coldren had the bird later further east along fisherman's access road). There was also a juvie Peregrine at the estuary.

      > Three LEWIS'S WOODPECKERS were along Bald Hills Road +-800' SE of rd that goes to Schoolhouse Peak Lookout (at a left turn that takes one to a small rockpit). They foraged for several minutes in an oak then flew south. A Say's Phoebe was also on Bald Hills rd, near turn-off to Lyon's Ranch.
