        Hello birders,

        IF you decide to look for the Cassin's Sparrow, be aware that County Flood
        Control employees may yell at you to leave the area as happened yesterday
        morning. You may even have a somewhat deranged resident wave a shotgun at
        you (fide Darren Dowell). Leave promptly if this happens, especially if
        the gun guy is around. Plans are being discussed for permitted access to
        this area, but this could take time.

        Thanks, Elaine MacPherson
        Sierra Madre

        A TROPICAL KINGBIRD was at Legg Lake in South El Monte on October 15.

        course fence near the baseball field.

        A MAGNOLIA WARBLER was at Apollo Park in Lancaster on October 13. It was
        seen along the southeast edge of the lake. A CACKLING GOOSE was also

        A BLACKPOLL WARBLER- probably a continuing bird- was at Creek Park in La
        Mirada on October 15. This bird was in eucalyptus trees bordering Imperial
        Highway. Also present near here was a continuing BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER.

        A SWAMP SPARROW and a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH were at Hahamongna Watershed
        Park (Devil’s Gate Basin) in Pasadena on October 15. Both were around the
        dried up pond just northeast of the lower parking area.

        A CASSIN’S SPARROW, a VESPER SPARROW and a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW were at

        on the Oxnard Plain. Look for the red barn.

        A bird initially reported as a Bay-breasted Warbler at the Wolff Road
        tamarisks last week was later determined to be a PINE WARBLER.

        A PHILADELPHIA VIREO and a BAY-BREASTED WARBLER continued through October
        13 in the tamarisks along Eston Road (along the east side of Pleasant
        Valley Park in Camarillo).

        At Camino Real Park in Ventura, a female/immature BALTIMORE ORIOLE
        continued through October 14. A PALM WARBLER was at the park on October 18 near
