Following up on Jason Siemen's sightings of yesterday, I found one PYGMY NUTHATCH in the tall pine on the SE corner of Greenwell and Ortega Hill. The trail around the valley was dead until, in the tall conifers to the right of the trail, about 200 yds. down the west fork, I found (at least) two MOUNTAIN CHICKADEES picking through the pine cones. I met a new birder who pointed out a Red-shouldered Hawk's nest on the trail between Ortega Hill Rd. and Ortega Ranch Lane. The nest was not active but she had seen birds in and on it earlier in the year and recognized the RSHA's calls from my Sibley's app.
At the Greenwell Preserve - also very slow - I had an overhead RED-TAILED HAWK and a BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER.
