SAGE THRASHER: OAKLAND HILLS

Sylvia Sykora
 

A nice addition to my yard list (#101) after 30 years in the Oakland hills when the east winds blew a Sage Thrasher into the garden on June 9. Well seen from about 20' away, in profile and facing, as it walked around the courtyard for a minute or two before flying off. An unlikely habitat for the SATH, I thought, in an area of tall conifers on the west side of the hills at 1400', near Redwood Park. How likely a sighting might this be?
