John Stump and I traveled over from the San Luis Valley for a chance at the Snowy Owl and RB Sapsucker. RB Sapsucker might be a $3,000 value life bird for me as I have missed it in numerous attempts on the west coast and probably spent those kind of $$ in the journey for this nemesis species!! We were not disappointed in that we did see the birds...both of those magnificent species were inspirational and exciting. And the nemesis is gone (to be replaced by the next nemesis, whatever that might be). But equally exciting was to see many friends I have not seen in a few years. Special thanks to Ira S for pointing out the RB Sapsucker, which would have been a challenge to find among the numerous pine trees. It was a day John and I shall not soon forget.
