      Hi,

      YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER (adult male): The adult male Yellow-bellied
      Sapsucker continued in the lone gray pine at the end of the Canebrake
      Ecological Reserve's Public Access Trail found off the north side of
      CA Hwy. 178 c. 5 miles east of the community of Onyx in the South
      Fork Valley..

      YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER (juvenile): The juvenile Yellow-bellied
      Sapsucker continued in the northeast portion of Scodie Park in the
      community of Onyx in the South Fork Valley.

      196 MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRDS: A single flock of 196 Mountain Bluebirds was
      counted on both sides of Kelso Valley Rd. +/- 4.0 miles south of CA
      Hwy. 178 in Weldon; and 0.25-0.5 miles south of the obvious cattle
      guard (road narrows at well-marked cattle guard). This is an area of
      very short grass just before reaching the Joshua tree covered
      hillside straight ahead south on Kelso Valley Rd. A stunning
      observation as 180+ of the individuals counted were electric blue/sky
      blue adult males revealed in bright sunshine.
