24-Aug-2002 Field Notes

Looks like several Ventana birds made a brief trip to the south today, eventually returning back up north by late afternoon. Between 1255 and 1456 I had moderate to strong signals from B-168, Y-190, and Or-212. All signals were at 320° NW. At one point, appx 1330, signals for Y-190and B-168 became significantly stronger and it felt like the had moved in pretty close. By 1456 they had weakened again. Had a brief set of signals from Hopper bird B-155  at 1539. B-155’s signals were moderate and inconsistent at 40° NW, near Machesna Wilderness, possibly over Castle Crags. - Paul Andreano
