Quien Sabe Road
I'd heard reports of people seeing 10-14 Golden Eagles near Quien Sabe Road near Panoche Valley so I went to see for myself. Within 4 minutes of turning onto the road I saw a distant Golden and once I rounded the bend another flew overhead.
Near Paicines Reservoir yet another Golden flew over the water followed by a pair of Red-tailed Hawks. Later while I was focusing on some Western Bluebirds I heard a Redtail scream and looked up to see the pair aggressively driving the Golden away.
I love Acorn Woodpeckers. Maybe it's their clown-like raucous character or their striking plumage - whatever it is they always delight me. This female decided to hawk insects above my head for a few minutes and it was amazing to watch her pick nearly invisible bugs from the air.
