I did my usual South Almaden Section for the CBC. I only found one RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW all day; in some years I've managed 10. I walked the Calero Creek Trail from San Vicente to Harry and things were quiet. No gnatcatchers walking out, but two BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS were in the California sagebrush and black sage not far from the end of San Vicente on my way back (photo attached). Walking the northern loop at Rancho San Vicente, I spotted a ROCK WREN along the ridge above the parking lot, perched on a rock, of course. I assume that the adult GOLDEN EAGLE skimming the ridges near there was one of the pair that has nested in this area for so many years.
