Rancho San Rafael, Reno, Washoe Co (9/5/12)
Spent an hour at RSR this morning looking for the 2 Red-shouldered hawks reported by Ken Drozd earlier in the week. In the event, I only met up with one of the hawks--a brief glimpse in the riparian downstream of Herman's Pond.
Other birds in and around Herman's Pond:
Western Wood Pewee--1
When I last saw the grebes--about 3 weeks ago--they were carrying nesting material, but--not surprisingly given the lateness of the date--nothing appears to have come of this.
