Don Castro, returning YBSA

Debbi Brusco

I went over again on 11/27 from 12:45-4:05, this time starting from the parking lot and going clockwise. I stopped to look at a few birds, but mostly was trying to get to the other side between 1-1:30 to check the willows.

I waited quietly near the willow/trashcan area on the south side of the lake. At 1:35, I saw the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker that has been around during the last couple of CBCs on the older willow on the lake side of the trail at that intersection. I mostly viewed it from east/SE of that tree; it seemed to like the shaded north side. Sometimes it was a little shy, moving behind where I couldn't see it, but I stayed there for an hour and watched it five different times.
