Usal Camp 10/18/06
- This morning Jim and I traveled up to Usal Camp again. The
weather was a little windy early, but it got pretty warm later.
Last night was quite clear with high pressure. There are less
people there mid-week, so we went ahead.
The best bird we could find was a wayward Bewick's Wren!
A N Flicker looked like an intergrade (neither Red- or Yellow-
shafted), but it was at a distance, so I could not be sure.
There were the usual large flocks in the same places as in
past weeks. Other birds besides RCKI and CBCH were
Warbling Vireo, Townsend's, Orange-crowned & Yellow-rumped
Warblers, Pine Siskins, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Lesser Gold-
finch, the usual sparrows, etc. Even the Great Blue Heron has
departed. The spots of water have almost completely dried up.
It is surely a great birding spot, though.
