Yesterday, Nov 8th, mid-morning, I stopped to check out the prescribed burn being tended in the north end of Ano Nuevo State Park. This area is accessible from pull-outs from Hwy 1, not from the main park entrance.
Many flocks of western meadowlarks were foraging on the burnt prairie, as well as many white-tailed kites, a few northern harriers, red-tails, and one red-shouldered was seen buzzing through.
As well as a says phoebe flycatching over the burnt land, multiple LOGGERHEAD SHRIKES were present, with a high count of three individuals in one scan.
Viewing POST conservation farmland from the road, just south of Pigeon Point, I noted another loggerhead shrike.
