      27 January 2009 - Tuesday - Today the Lewis's Woodpecker was again
      seen along the River Road south of Talmage near mm 7.54 as described
      a few days ago. This time the bird was atop an oak tree and it was
      hawking insects and returning to the top of the tree. It is very
      light-breasted when well lit from the sun as it was as 3:00 PM ...I
      almost did not stop to look thinking it was just a robin or
      kestrel. The tree is just on the south side of the pond (you cannot
      see the water... just the face of the dam). A merlin was about 1/2
      mile south. Good Birding. Bob Keiffer

        3 March 2009 - Tuesday - the LEWIS'S WOODPECKER continues at Kingfarm
        Ranch along the Old River Road south of Talmage. It was again on
        it's favorite telephone pole by the oak tree (see prior
        messages). NO Lewis's Woodpeckers were reported this Winter Period
        from Round Valley (Covelo) which is unusual. Good birding. Bob Keiffer
