One highlight to Day #2 of our Golden Gate Audubon trip into the mountains of southern Oregon was a chance to watch two Red-breasted Nuthatches bringing food to their nestlings.  This was on the north side of Mt. Ashland, below Bull Gap. RBN HOLE1 (1280x960) - Copy RBN HOLE2 (1280x960) - Copy RBN HOLE3 (1280x960) - Copy RBN HOLE4 (1280x960) - CopyBelow: an exit, with fecal sac. RBN HOLE5 (1280x960) - CopyAnother speedy return. RBN HOLE6 (1280x960) At the Ashland Dog Park a half hour of assiduous effort finally got one of our group his lifer view of a Yellow-breasted Chat.  Thirty feet up in a cottonwood, singing.

And we had great views of a male Calliope Hummer, on Tolman Creek Road.  Pictures later.  Klamath tomorrow.
