  1. South Lake Tahoe advice? LINK
    DATE: Feb 2, 2018 @ 5:17pm, 9 month(s) ago
    For the next 8 Saturdays I will be up in South Lake Tahoe. Will be free from 9AM to 3PM while my son is skiing. I might ski too, but the idea of exploring the area is rather too tempting.
    Any advice on the best way to use my time
    Pine Grosbeak is a nemesis and would love to try for it.
    And perhaps photo opportunities for the iconic birds of the Eastern Sierra and the High Plains.
    I can probably go up as far as Reno to the north and Bridgeport to the south. Any further would entail more driving and less birding.
    In the past I have had luck with Pinyon Jays near Walker, CA and would probably try again for some pics. Anteleope Valley for raptors and other roadside photo ops.
    Last Saturday I went to Diamond Valley near Indian Creek Reservoir. Great looks at Ferruginous Hawks and Prairie Falcons but no Grosbeaks.
    Any good site for Bald Eagles
    Appreciate any/all suggestions.
    Thanks in advance,
