Ten Mile River Birds
- Sun, 16 Oct, 2011 -- A "tan-stripe" White-throated Sparrow and a
Black-throated Gray Warbler were along the Ten Mile logging road
on the south side of Ten Mile River this morning. Prior to leaving
Ocean Meadows neighborhood, 5 imm Greater White-fronted Geese
were trying to sit down on the road. I nudged them aside.
I also walked a short way east on the Skunk RR Tracks, where
only Steller's Jays made their presence known. Then, I went to
the Mendocino Headlands SP to look for longspurs, but only
Savannah Sparrows were around. Better luck next time.

- Fri, 14 March 2014 -- I had about 45 minutes to myself this morning, and being encouraged by recent eBird reports, I drove up the road on starting on the south side of Ten Mile river. Two Greater Yellowlegs foraged just east of the Hwy 1 bridge. East at the old, low bridge at the confluence of the river's two forks, was a wide variety of species, with a pair of Wood Ducks even further up the north fork in a small pond near the river. Three Orange-crowned Warblers were the only singing warblers, although a flock of Yellow-rumps worked through the willows.Karen HavlenaNorth of Fort Bragg, MEN, Ca
