Should I Chase The Northern Gannet?

Found a bunch of nests today.  No big deal.  Most of them were Phainopeplas.  Like I said, no biggie.  I also saw these migrating birds:

Pacific-slope Flycatcher.  AKA Yellow Empid.

I think this bird was sick or weak or both.  It couldn't fly very well.  Western Tanager.   South El Monte, CA.


  1. The Gannet returned today I hear. We're mostly on the burn sites in Plumas NF, staying at the berkeley forestry camp, Mel is our supervisor. Probs help with some MISing every week or two. You SEFIing this fall?
