I would love to know where folks are seeing Pine Grosbeaks in Tahoe as well. If anyone responded to you with any tips can you forward them to me Iím going to be in Tahoe this weekend and would love to look for them.

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 rathertoo 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 Renoto 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,
