Joshua Horns (31 October  2016) - [Koosharem Reservoir] - Common Loon

Brook O'Connor (28 October 2016) - [Ivie Creek Rest Area] - Williamson's Sapsucker. 1st year bird. Overall fine black and dusky barring with a dark smudge of bib in upper breast. Head brownish with hazy gray around bveye and face. It behaved like a young bird clinging to an upper trunk of a pinyon pine tree. It did not appear to have any yellow on its belly from what I could see, but the under belly was mostly hidden. I waited for some time but it didn't change position. There was no underside speckling as a flicker. Barring continued back side and underside. It was found just outside the rest area compound in the far back. Also, I first saw it moving up the trunk somewhat like a Brown Creeper would do, then it stopped and hugged the trunk and would not move.
