As mentioned by Daryl, the Upland Sandpiper continues at Galileo Hill.
For those considering a visit, keep this in mind. On at least three
days, the bird has been unable to be found in the late afternoon to
evening. Cliff Hawley and I spent over three hours looking Wednesday
from 5:30PM to dark, so your best bet might be morning.
The Blythe Northern Cardinal was singing at 5:30AM on Thursday at the
location posted on Inlandcounty birds by Roger Higson. Take Hwy 78 exit
from I-10, go south and almost immediately turn right (west) on one of
the little patches of blacktop into an expanse of mesquite. The bird was
initially singing about 400 meters to the West in the mesquite. After a
while it moved closer to Hwy 78 before coming to feed at the house
along the road just to the South.
As Roger has urged, be considerate of the residents and bring them some
