      Greetings All
      A couple of weeks ago I made a request to CALBIRDS for info about
      places that I could take a visiting friend so he could fill in some of the
      gaps on his California/U.S. list. I received many helpfull replies which
      contributed to our successfull trip. We birded in Kern, Los Angeles,
      Merced, Tulare, and Ventura counties, and we met some very friendly and
      helpfull birders at Butterbredt Spring. For those who are interested, what
      follows is the list for our trip. Again, thanks for your help!
