    Equipment Note

NOTES: Unseen bird was probably about 15 m away and at or a little above eye level in dense undergrowth of blackberries (Ribes sp.) and Arroyo Willow (Salix lasiolepis) along riparian corridor along Coon Creek Trail about 1 1/2 miles above trailhead (GPS reading about 100 m farther up the trail was 35¡ 14' 00Ó N, 120¡ 52' 53Ó W); the canyon was beginning to open up at this point, but still with steep slopes covered in Coastal Sage Scrub; the bird seemed to be moving slightly, but subsequent ÒspishingÓ had no apparent effect; weather same (completely clear, intermittent breeze of about 5 knots down the canyon, but probably in the low 50s). A pair with a dependant juvenile was found in approximately this same location on 16 July 2005, this apparently representing the southernmost breeding location in the county, and possibly, the coast of southern California.
