- From N. Calif. Birdbox:
"On Mar 18, a NORTHERN SHRIKE, a previously reported BURROWING OWL,
BALD EAGLE, GOLDEN EAGLE, PEREGRINE FALCON and COOPER'S HAWK were
reported from Burris Lane in the Potter Valley. The shrike was
seen near the pond on Burris Lane, which is 1.4 miles from
East Side Potter Valley Road. (Al DeMartini)
On Mar 17, (5) RED CROSSBILLS were seen in the Pygmy Forest at
Jug Handle State Preserve.
Tue, 20 Mar 2007 -- This afternoon, having been away for several days, I
spent about an hour and a half on Burris Lane and Pine Avenue hoping to
find the shrike. The BURROWING OWL was sitting in the burrow where it has
been a fixture for about a month now. I was able to scope a distant BALD
EAGLE sitting north of Pine Avenue, there were several GOLDEN EAGLES about,
but I was unable to find the shrike. It has become very green and lovely
out there in the last week, and the popcorn flower is beginning to bloom.
