- Feb 15, 20144-8 Aug 2014 -- This last week I have been working in the Mainstem Eel River
visiting seven locations between Cape Horn Dam and Dos Rios. It was smoky
and not very birdy most of the time, but I did see AMERICAN DIPPERS at three
of the seven sites, all without public access. I also saw one CANYON WREN
at a public access site along Route 162 near milepost 10.77 on Aug 7. There
is a broad pullout on the river side of the road with a rocky riffle below.
I saw the wren fly across the river landing on some rocks in midstream then
continuing to the near bank where it disappeared into a group of rocks. I
have seen Canyon Wren at this location once in past years - but not
regularly. This is several miles upstream from the Dos Rios Bridge which
has been a productive area in recent years.
