      Hi, all!

      Don't have time for a detailed trip report today, but thought I would hit the
      highlights:

      GUAJOME REGIONAL PARK

      LOTS of birds this morning, the most unusual of which was a GREATER
      WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE by the lake with the domestic geese; there were no bands
      and the wings were in good shape, so I assume he's a legit stray. Had a
      migrant BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER in the same area, and the usual riparian
      stuff like BELL'S VIREO, BLACK-CHINNED HUMMER, AMERICAN GOLDFINCH, DOWNY
      WOODPECKER, and singing VIRGINIA RAILS.

      NATE HARRISON GRADE: Highlights include LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCHES bouncing
      over, BLACK-CHINNED and SAGE SPARROWS, and a single SHARP-SHINNED HAWK.

      PALOMAR MOUNTAIN: A flock of CEDAR WAXWINGS was new for the Silvercrest
      Trail for me, and had singing BROWN CREEPER at Lower Observatory Campground.
      Both Steller's and Scrub Jays were all over. Picked up WHITE PELICANS at
      Lake Henshaw and various water stuff at Ramona Pond. Full bird list:
