      Hi,

      The highlight of 5:45am-08:30am birding this morning was a red RED
      CROSSBILL on a pine cone at the top of a pine tree in a grove of pine
      trees on the campus of Cerro Coso Community College (situated on the
      slope above the south end of Ridgecrest in eastern Kern County).
      Although size is hard to determine in many, if not most, cases (It
      had to have been XXX because it was so big!), this individual
      appeared to be on the large end of the range in size of Red Crossbills.

      Two of the resident population of several VERDINS were also detected
      during thirty-five minutes of birding on a small portion of the campus.
