      Hi, all!

      Was birding the Sunrise Highway this morning and had a singing VARIED THRUSH
      in the pines near the Sunset Trailhead. Going north on S1 from the freeway,
      you cross a cattle guard entering the Laguna Mountain Rec Area, and just
      past that there's a call box by a wooden walkway going out into the open area.
      About a tenth of a mile further down is the S1 sign, and this is where the
      bird was.

      Other interesting birds included several CASSIN'S FINCHES and PINE SISKINS.
      I also birded a bit of the Pine Creek Road "Easy Birder Route", but all
      access to the National Forest is closed (including Pine Creek Road proper going
      up into the forest).
