Sighting

On 9 Nov we went to Nik-n-Nik and hunted for the White-tailed Kite from 1030-1130 and couldn't find it. We did see the juvenile Pacific Loon, an immature Ross's Goose, two Common Goldeneye, a stunning dark morph Ferruginous Hawk and a lone Tree Swallow. We went to Millpond, the Park, Round Valley and back routes through Bishop and back to Big Pine and counted 33 Red-tailed Hawks. We had 10 Western Bluebirds at Millpond and 10 more in Round Valley. This is an exceptionally good fall for WEBLs. Ten Loggerhead Shrikes was also more than usual.
