I was recently in Kern County for two weeks with a 20-person wildland
fire crew and during slow periods on the fires I was able to do a
little birding. I think I found 50 species including possibly 13
lifers. Since I didn't have as much time to look at some of these
birds or to follow them due to other more pressing matters I have a
few questions about what I might have seen. I'd appreciate the chance
to email or to talk with someone who is more familiar with the birds
of your area. Specifically I was on the Cottonwood Fire which was up
Kelso Valley Road and on the Bodfish Fire in Lake Isabella.
If anyone is willing to help me figure out what I saw please send my
your email, or phone number and when would be a good time to call. Or
if you prefer to call me my number is 828-265-2827.
Thanks for any help.
