Yesterday I birded for an hour behind Mountain Falls and saw a beautiful Golden Eagle. Also a Common Yellothroat.
This morning after finishing viewing the Burrowing Owls, I drove over to Willow Creek to see what might be hanging out there. Viki Calzascia arrived right after me, she had also been out studying Burrowing Owls. We decided to bird Willow Creek together.
