      Birders: This weekend, the VARIED THRUSHES continue at Hart Park,
      northeast of Bakersfield. Today, three were feeding on the ground in
      the grove of trees directly north of Mirror Lake. HOODED MERGANSERS
      continue in numbers along the canals of the park as well as on Lake
      Ming. A singleton CASSIN'S KINGBIRD was in the very top of a tree
      toward the east end of the group picnic area, east of Lake Ming. The
      kingbirds have been sporadic and hard to find for the past two months.
      I didn't have the arm strenth to find the White-throated Sparrow among
      the hundreds of Lark and White-crowned sparrows along the fence between
      the group picnic area and the golf course. An hour of scanning didn't
      produce it. It's almost as bad as warbler neck!
