3251Lake County Canyon Wren
- Apr 13 11:20 PMMon, 13 Apr 2009 -- Taking a tip from Jim Lomax,
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/countybirders/message/4160> I went back to
Riviera West Drive on the side of Mount Konocti, parked at the end of
Mountain Crest Drive, and made my way uphill to the Mount Konocti cliffs.
This is serious, blind, bushwhacking, and it took about a half hour to go
about a quarter mile up the steep slope. I spent about another forty
minutes working west along the base of the cliffs, and finally heard, but
never saw, a CANYON WREN. It was about 50 yards beyond the pink flagging.
No White-throated Swifts today.
On the drive back along Soda Bay Road I saw a pair of EURASIAN
COLLARED-DOVES near Stone Road, and at Lakeside Park I independently
discovered the SNOW GOOSE and ROSS'S GOOSE that I see Floyd Hayes reported
Seeing the Snow Goose reminded me of something I never reported:
Joanne Haller and I found a SNOW GOOSE and an ALEUTIAN CACKLING GOOSE on the
north shore of Lake Pilsbury back on March 26.
