1468Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Lapland Longspur
- Oct 2, 2005Charlene and I joined Jerry White and saw the Rose-breasted Grosbeak at
Lois' feeder this afternoon. It's a very nice male, I'm guessing second
year. Lots of 'rose' color on the breast and black feathers where a young
bird would have brown.
I also saw a Lapland Longspur out on the Spring Ranch headlands (2 miles
south of Mendocino) late this afternoon.
