Inland - Ten Mile River
- Hi birders,
This morning, Jim and I drove up the old Georgia Pacific (now Hawthorne
Timber) road along the north fork of Ten Mile River. Note: this road is
only available on weekends!
We saw 2 juvenile PECTORAL SANDPIPERS (Karen) at the low bridge,
east of Hwy 1. At 2-3 miles up the road, we saw a BLACK-THROATED
GRAY WARBLER (Jim) and a RED-BREASTED (Daggetti) SAPSUCKER
(Jim) in a large, mixed flock. Further on, approximately 5 or 6 miles up
the paved road, we watched a juvenile SHARP-SHINNED HAWK (Karen)
fly up from a low perch to circle with Red-tails and TV's.
Entrance to this unmarked road is south of Ten Mile River bridge across
from the large pull-out with big rock and gravel piles. Remember not to
try birding here on weekdays -- too many logging and gravel trucks. But,
there were bicyclists and other people in cars on outings today (Sunday).
We believe that the "no trespassing" signs apply only if you leave the
paved roadway. So, just stay on the road. It is wide enough to pull over
to park. There are private residences for several miles up the road to the
active Hawthorne Timber property.
Karen (& Jim) Havlena
