Birds -- Yuba Pass and Sierra Valley, June 2007

These are some pictures from my long weekend June 28-July 2, 2007 in the Yuba Pass / Sierra Valley area. The highlight was being at a Lewis's Woodpecker nest near Loyalton just as one of the two nestlings left the nest; pictures show the baby seconds out of the nest, and then a few minutes later at the summit of a nearby snag which was the destination of its first flight. I also had pictures of American Dipper nestlings and their parents at Wild Plum campground near Sierra City. Other pictures show some of the characteristic birds of this great birding area.
