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, Vivek Tiwari Sunnyvale, CA
