      Birders: A Myiarchus flycatcher with characteristics consistent with
      a NUTTING'S FLYCATCHER was seen this morning at the group picnic area
      east of Lake Ming, northeast of Bakersfield. The mouth lining was
      not seen clearly to determine color, but other field marks suggested
      Nutting's. It was seen in the trees nearest the paved parking lot
      next to the picnic area, and was especially fond of the two trees
      directly west of the first, smaller restroom. One of those trees is
      full of small red berries on which the bird was feeding. Other birds
      of interest were a COMMON LOON and a GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE on
      Lake Ming and two CASSIN'S KINGBIRDS along the south fenceline of
      Lake Ming. Further sightings reports re: the flycatcher would be
      appreciated.
