      Hi,

      Regarding Gary Lindquist's Sa, 27 Jun 09 photo of the assumed Kern
      River Preserve BLUE-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, be aware that there are two
      hummingbird feeding stations at Kern River Preserve Headquarters in
      Weldon ... one in the front yard and the other in the side yard just
      beyond the visitor center. Since Gary did not mention which feeding
      station hosted the hummingbird he photographed, it will be necessary
      to cover both feeding stations to attempt to determine absence or
      continuing presence. Therefore, two people observing (one at each
      feeding station) will be more sure of presence/absence than a single
      observer moving back-and-forth between feeding stations (although
      there is one spot where one can see both sets of feeders ... bring a
      stool for the option of either sitting or standing at this spot (in
      trail just outside visitor center).

      In case observers decide to go for the hummingbird and then wish to
      go for other things, feel free to contact me directly (not via
      CALBIRDS!) with an update on other noteworthy observations in the
