Early on 1-10-04 I drove to Potter Valley to look for Prairie Falcon.
After the fog finally lifted I saw the Prairie Falcon that had been
reported at the end of Burris Lane (thanks George!). There was also a
Say's Phoebe along Pine Ave.
Then I drove to the house in Fort Bragg to look for the White-winged Dove.
It showed up about 3:00 p.m. There were also 2 White-throated Sparrows in
the yard. I also saw an oriole flying about the neighborhood. I was
unable to get a good look, but it looked like a male Northern-type (can't
rule out Bullock's).
