Birds -- Yuba Pass and Sierra Valley, June 2010

I paid a June bird photography visit to Yuba Pass / Sierra Valley for the sixth consecutive year, June 7-10. The late arrival of summer was evident, but I had my usual great time, staying in Sierra City at Buttes Resort and enjoying the hospitality of Mike and Lindy Terwilliger, and cruising the usual spots. Some of the results posted below.
