      Today, 3 Nov, Jimmy McMorran found a Snow Bunting mixed with Horned Larks on
      San Clemente Island. The bird appears to be an adult male, and Jimmy was
      able to photograph it. This remarkable record comes on the heels of one here
      last fall/winter, which represented the farthest south this species has been
      recorded on the Pacific Coast. I wonder if it could be the same bird returning
      for another winter? It was found nearly 10 miles north of the location of the
      2003/2004 bird.

      Other birds of note have been good numbers of Lapland and Chestnut-collared
      Longspurs, and a single Red-throated Pipit, as well as higher than usual
      numbers of Western Palm Warblers. A late Blackpoll Warbler was seen several days
      ago, along with a wayward Lewis's Woodpecker.

      thanks
