Happily we report that the Harlan's Red-tailed Hawk we first had on Dec. 31, 2012, and that we saw last on Feb 24th, 2017, has returned to the Whitmore Plains. A photos of this bird is in Shasta Birders photos, in Bob Yutzy's Photos. Rough calculation this bird would be at least be 5 & 1/2 years old!
Found today on our Jelly Ferry to Millville Plains Hawk Count. Full results to follow.

An internet search for Yahoo pix problems yields lots of reports that Yahoo pictures are apparently loading but not displaying when you look back for them. This has reportedly been going on for a month or two AND there is no info on whether anyone is repairing the problem.
Don’t know what else to say.

I too am unable to load pictures in Shasta Birders Yahoo Group - and I can only see some pictures by others in Shasta Birders. When I go to other groups like CVBirds, NWCalBirds, etc., I am unable to see any photos by anyone.
To me obviously, Yahoo Groups is having some problems all over the place. Not sure what to do next except see if it gets better in the next couple days. Maybe they are doing a rebuild or some such procedure at Yahoo.com.
Re: the moderator - it got stuck on me from Ray Bruun and Rob Santry. As far as I know there is little that can be done by a moderator except try to find out who might know what is wrong and when will it will be fixed.

Several people have reported that they have trouble getting files from the FILES section of Shasta Birders.
I notice that I often have to click on FILES at least twice to get any list of files to show up. Then double clicking on a file gets me access to that file. There is clearly a glitch in the set up of this. But hopefully the suggestion above is workable.

I just posted 2 pix of a feeder White-throated Sparrow and several so-so pix of flying Golden Eagle(s) to Shasta Birders - Yutzy's Birds 2017 & 2018.

We have uploaded a new file to Shasta Birder's Yahoo Group of our annotated records of supplemental species from the Shasta County Bird Checklist. This includes Records from almost 40 years of sightings from our two Shasta County databases(AviSys & Plover), from Shasta Birders Yahoo group reports and emails, from Wintu AudubonNewsletter field trip reports, from North Amercian Birds (NAB) magazine/journal Vol. 27-#1 (1972) to Vol. 69-#3(2015), Shasta County NAB reports for all 2016 and Spring & Summer 2017, credible eBird reports, local CBC records, and from personal communications.
If you would prefer the document as an attached Excel document to an email, please let us know.
By the way, you can use the FIND function in Excel to look for your name or a bird's name to make reviewing records easier.
This project began when Ken Able mentioned it would be a shame to lose all the Shasta County records we have kept over the years, so we have completed a first edition of our collection of Shasta County records for your input, comments, and corrections. Because a record is listed does not mean it is fully substantiated. However, clearly a number of species should be moved to the regular county checklist at the next revision.
As we receive corrections and additions to the list we will upload new versions (this is called version 1) until we have a more final document.

I just want to remind everyone of the Wintu Audubon full day outing to Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge this Saturday. We will meet at 7:30 sharp at the Kutras Park parking lot. Weather is suppose to be partly cloudy with a high of 58 degrees.
We are also partnering with Tehama Wild Care and the City of Anderson to install an Osprey Platform atop the light pole at the Anderson River Park soccer field this week or next, depending on the weather. This project will solve the problem of the Osprey nesting on top of the lights and give them a more stable, permanent nesting site on the top of the pole. I will announce the actual date as soon as it has been determined.
