      The mid-Sep 08 through the expected first week of March 09 Sandhill
      Crane fly-in season at Pixley NWR in southwestern Tulare County (just
      east of CA 43 near Alpaugh and 8 miles west of CA Hwy 99 in
      Earlimart) continued to be impressive with thousands of individuals
      still present. Other highlights were some nice flocks of Long-billed
      Curlews (270 observed from the BLM Trail at the south edge of
      Alpaugh-Tul Co. and 800-1000 in an alfalfa field between Alpaugh and
      CA Hwy 43-Tul Co. The crane fly-in was followed by an outstandingly
      delicious dinner at Benji's French Basque Restaurant in Bakersfield.
