I am an avid birder and bird conservationist and a former 10-year member of the Board of Trustees of the American Bird Conservancy.
I am planning to visit California next June in search of several California birds I've not yet seen, namely, Pacific Wren, Mountain Quail, Sooty Grouse, California Condor and Island Scrub-Jay. The last-named two I'll seek further south than the Mendicino area. Perhaps Ryan Keiffer or another of your folks can contact me about linking up to seek Pacific Wren and/or Mountain Quail and/or even Sooty Grouse in your area. Many thanks.
