      Hi Bob,
      Here is the address:

      Black Oak Ranch (MAP)
      50350 North Hwy 101
      Laytonville, CA 95454 US
      (707) 984-6507

      The owner is an old hippie, named Wavy Gravy, who was an emcee at the original Woodstock, and very earth friendly and would IMHO be happy to have birders document the breeding. www.wavygravy.net

      I am absolutely sure of the ID. I watched them for 5-10 minutes and have seen them commonly in the Sierra foothills, and in Arizona when I lived there in the early 90's.

      The tree they were in was creek side at the "Riverside" camping area at the festival. The owners would know where that is.
      Let me know if you find them.

      John, THANK YOU!!!! First... let me ask you without offending you ....are you absolutely sure? This will be the first summer record for this species in Mendocino County and I may ask you for some detailed notes. Also ....it sounds like this pair may be nesting which would also be a first for the county. Is it possible to get specific directions and a landowner contact for permission to look for these birds? This is a GREAT find for Mendocino County.

      Hi Birders,
      I was camped at the Kate Wolf music festival along Ten Mile Creek just
      north of Laytonville. There were a few birders among the several
      thousand gentle tie-dyed folks. The highlight for me was a Phainopepla
      pair. It seems a bit west of their range in the Central Valley
      foothills. 25 species all together, common stuff.
