BN/CG still on for the sol cal trip later this month (29/30)? I'll be around and look forward to meeting up again although there is a chance I'll have a funeral to attend that weekend =( I'm just waiting for the date to be finalized.

Yes Callie, I chased that guy all over the place on 3 different attempts and still didn't get the perfect shot.

Matty - Very sorry to hear about a pending funeral.

We will definitely be there. We will be at the South Coast Botanic Gardens at 8:30am on Saturday the 29th. It opens at 9 but there is good trolling in the parking lot.

We'll also bird on Sunday, but haven't decided where. We could do as we did last year and figure it out over lunch on Saturday. PM me if you need my cell in case we don't see you on Sat and want to join us on Sunday (true for all).

Had a great time climbing down in the San Luis Valley, managed to do three new routes, 12b, 12a/b and a 11a. Plus got some birding in...never tired of looking at Sandhill Cranes.

Craig, it was seen yesterday. He is at the corner of Lemon Grove and Tangelo in Irvine, close to Irv. Valley College. Look in the Coral trees, especially in the pair of trees at the entrance to the resident parking area 30 yards from the corner. He also likes the flowering tree across the street from there.
I've been over there 3 times and seen him every time.
They don't want birders wandering between the apartment buildings but the bird prefers the street area anyway.

We camped at Corn Springs out in the Mojave se of Josh this weekend and on the way back stopped at the Living Desert in Palm Desert. Lot's of petroglyphs, some good birds and very, very quiet. It's also a potential spot for Elf Owls.
The Living Desert is awesome, a must visit and where the Abert's Towhees are a pretty sure thing.

Are those shots above taken with your cannon SX 50?

I got one but found it hard to use. Must take some getting used to...


Edit, yea that view finder is useless. Hard to get the bird in frame at high zoom.

Yes John, they are. I don't use the viewfinder much, just the screen.

Here is a good source for birding hotspots along the Eastern Sierra.
