Labor Day Birding at Miner Hole Rd.
- Mon. 6 September, 2010--An unplanned bird outing came into being today when Jerry White, Rich and Nancy Trissel and myself all found ourselves at Miner Hole Rd this morning. The best bird of the day was a coastally rare BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER first spotted by Nancy Trissel. YELLOW and TOWNSEND WARBLERS were found but the consensus of the group was that it's still early for Fall migration.
Jerry and I explored the Alder Creek area and the best bird was a BLUE-WINGED TEAL that flew in.
Jerry reported that the AMERICAN AVOCET was still at the Ukiah Waste Treatment Plant as of this morning.
