Mountains and Coast
- On Friday October 28th I birded Etsel Ridge and Round Valley. In the mountains I recorded the three accipiter's; Sharp-shinned, Coopers and Northern Goshawk. Nothing unusual in the valley; the best birds were 2 Ferruginous Hawks and a Golden Eagle.
On Saturday morning I found a Black-and-white Warbler at Usal. This is very likely the same bird first discovered by Don Doolittle and Debi Shearwater October 16th.
There was also a Black-throated Gray Warbler in the same flock. At the Westport Treatment Pond there was a Greater White-fronted Goose. JRW
