Earlier this evening (Tuesday, March 27th) while hiking at the referenced location, I clearly heard an Eastern Phoebe calling it's distinctive "fee-bee" in a buffoloberry bush about a half-mile upstream of the Mexican Dam. This particular bush is the first and largest buffaloberry bush upstream of the dam right on the banks of the Carson River. I was not able to get a visual on the Phoebe as it called 2 or 3 times. Ironically, this is the same bush where I visually observed one in August 2014.
Other birds of note include 3 active Great-Horned Owl nests and a pair of Barn Owls in the split-top cottonwood tree near the parking lot.
The parking lot of Carson River Park is off of Carson River Road just before it crosses over the Carson River in east Carson City. The one-way distance from the parking lot to the buffaloberry bush is about 2.25 miles.
