Inland and Coast- February 16th, 17th and 18th
- On Tuesday February 16th I made an owl trip to Montgomery Woods and Orr Springs Road.
At Montgomery Woods as it got dark a Northern Saw-whet Owl called for about 2 minutes. A little later 2 Great Horned Owls called from a distant location. Then at 6:20 PM a nearby BARRED OWL started calling and continued for a couple of minutes.
I made several stops on Orr Springs Road and at one of the first stops heard another Saw-whet Owl. At around 7:40 PM at my last stop there was a calling LONG-EARED OWL. This bird was still giving its low soft hoot call 5 minutes later as I left.
On Wednesday February 17th I saw a 1st cycle GLAUCOUS GULL on the beach at the Garcia River outlet.
There were 2 PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVERS (continuing birds) not far from the entrance gate on the Pt Arena Lighthouse property.
On Thursday February 18th the YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER was at Rose Memorial Park in Ft. Bragg. Jerry White
