- Birders: There was a white-striped, WHITE-THROATED SPARROW at the
group picnic area west of Lake Ming, northeast of Bakersfield, this
morning. Most days, the ground-feeders don't start to drop until the
sun warms the area - after 9:00. The flock at this location was about
150 birds, mostly WHITE-CROWNED and LARK. There was one LINCOLN'S
among them. The feeding areas were mostly on all sides of the picnic
tables, with most between the picnic tables and the golf course fence.
- Birders: I found the WHITE-THROATED SPARROW, again this morning. It
was feeding with a sizable flock of White-crowns directly uphill from
the picnic tables in the group picnic area east of Lake Ming, northeast
