- Feb 1, 2003It was a gray, gloomy morning in Kern County and justifiably so, with
the unfolding shuttle tragedy. A lone CASSIN'S KINGBIRD along the
southern fenceline near Lake Ming, this morning. Also continuing in
Hart Park: the LEWIS' WOODPECKER, and a lone female HOODED
MERGANSER. I saw no sign of our Scott's Oriole, but that was more
due to fog than its not being there.
