First of its kind: Downtown Quincy recently hosted the first blue jay ever recorded in Plumas County. "Blue jays breed as far west as Montana and British Columbia and are irregular vagrants in much of the western United States. Mostly younger birds migrate outside of their normal range," said David Arsenault, executive director of Plumas Audubon Society. 'q'here have been a handful of blue jay records for California. One was in the Chico area in the winter of 2011-12, but this is a first for Plumas County." Photo by Willie Hall/courtesy Plumas Audubon Society ime Annual count e:r:way. Plumas Audubon Society is calling all bird watchers to participate in its Christmas Bird Count, an early-winter bird census to assess the health of bird populations and guide conservation efforts. Participants can venture outside to count or tally from their own windows. Either way, their observations will make a difference, said Teresa Arrate, outreach and education coordinator for Plumas Audubon.

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors, Butte County Board of Supervisors and the Environmental Protection Agency submitted comments. Groups as varied as the Sierra Access Coalition, which represents motorized recreation interests, and the Pacific Crest Trail Association commented. Friends of Plumas Wilderness offered a conservation alternative, and Snowlands Network, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit that prompted the planning effort, proposed another. The Forest Service will now sift through all the input, a process called ,'content analysis," and develop additional .alternatives. said Dave Wood, acting public service staff officer.
