Covelo & Round Valley - Rough-legged Hawk
- Thu, 4 December 2008 - Today, I spent hours in the Covelo &
Round Valley area looking for Lewis's Woodpecker and Rough-
legged Hawk. I covered almost every accessible road in the
valley. Finally, I found a 1st year ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK on
East Ln. This is in the NE corner of the valley.
On Dobie Land, I could not find any clue of Lewis's Woodpecker
being there. Of course, I searched all over the valley, but there
were no Lewis"s in sight.
Prior to my arrival in the Round Valley, I came over from the
coast on Branscomb Rd and Dos Rios Rd from Laytonville.
When I reach Dos Rios bridge, I stopped and looked over the
sides with my binoculars.
There were at leat 55+ King Salmon resting just north of the
confluence of the Eel River and the N Fork of the Eel River.
Later on, I checked two other places, where I saw about 10+
salmon each time. My unofficial total was 55- to 75 salmon.
