Chestnut-sided Wblr & Others Near Caspar
- 23 Sept, 2012 -- I found an imm CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER mid-afternoon just
south of Caspar Creek/Beach, in the willows of Doyle Creek (tent campground is
associated with Caspar Beach RV Park. Doyle Ck bisects the two areas of the
campground). It was with a tiny "flock" of 1 Yellow & 1 Townsend's Warblers, plus
3 Chestnut-backed Chickadees.
for a (maybe) still occurring Hooded Merganser, but a person with an unleashed
dog was near Caspar Ck where it enters the riparian area. Near the mouth, there was
1 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, with a small number of LESA and KILL.
At Caspar Pond (Hwy 1 & Fern Ck Rd), there was a PECTORAL SANDPIPER and
2 WILSON'S SNIPE on the east side of the pond.
At Caspar Cemetery, I heard several RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES and PYGMY
NUTHATCHES. A med-small owl was being mobbed by mostly Steller's Jays near
a well-used trail above the Doyle Ck drainage.
