    Equipment Note

NOTES: Same family group as in cut #05-RDAT04-05 recorded at same spot, a small grove of three or four large (8-10 m tall but with 1+ m dbh trunks) Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) trees with an understory of grass and Sticky Monkey Flower (Mimulus aurantiacus), all on a steep, east-facing slope surrounded by Coastal Sage Scrub along Rattlesnake Flats Trail just below saddle; at least three birds were seen at this time, and those giving what sounded like begging calls were indeed full-tailed, but rather scruffy-headed juveniles; birds were moving about between the ground and 5 m up; clear, onshore breeze (apparently from NW), mid- 60s.
