      Hi,

      A CLAY-COLORED SPARROW continued in desert habitat c. 100' to the
      east of the small, cement-lined "watering hole" at the edge of the
      Cerro Coso Community College Campus in Ridgecrest, Kern County. This
      location is within 100' of the southeast corner of the palm grove
      located on the south side of the east-west entrance road to the large
      paved parking lot in front of/on the south side of the classroom
      building - Bob Barnes. NOTE: This bird was previously discovered in
      this location by Susan Steele this past Mo., 11/7/11.

      The RUSTY BLACKBIRD continued for a SEVENTH DAY. This morning at
      about 8:30am it foraged on the center field grass of the baseball
      field at the college. Also present on the center and right field
      grass at the same time were Killdeer-4, Eurasian Collared-Dove-1,
      Horned Lark-275 (counted one-by-one, not an estimate), American
      Robin-14, European Starling-1, Red-winged Blackbird-1, and Western
      Meadowlark-1. Flying at the birds on the field, found in the row of
      trees, and/or found on the ground bordering the first base/right
      field side of the baseball field were Accipiter species-1, Mourning
      Dove-3, Northern (Red-shafted Flicker)-1, Verdin-1, Northern
      Mockingbird-1, Spotted Towhee-1, and White-crowned Sparrow-1 (at
      least) - Bob Barnes. NOTE: This bird was first found on the grass
      infield of the running track at the college by Tom Wurster this past
      Sa, 11/5/11.

      Since posts on this Rusty Blackbird will likely NOT be made to
      CALBIRDS from here on out, feel free to contact me directly if
