This morning I chased the previously reported HORNED LARKs near the intersection of San Andreas Road and West Beech Road just west of Watsonville. I was thrilled to find the HORNED LARKS and got a few fun photos including:
Big thanks to Randy Wardle. This species has been a bit of nemesis county bird lately. I saw them in county over a decade ago, but did not record the time and date, so no ebird record. Randy's location reference to the telephone pole with "Peace" written on it, got me checking the right field for the larks. I'd been looking repeatedly, but about 1/3 mile further up the road near the bridge.
