Black-and-white Warbler, Indigo Bunting
Passing along some eastern Kern County desert oases sightings from
San Bernardino area birder Dave Goodward who is working a couple of
days a week in eastern Kern County. He tried posting to
kerncobiriding yesterday, but for unknown reasons it didn't go through.
"...I have started to get to know the famous Kern Co. traps I have
heard about for so long. I tried posting to Kerncobirding yesterday,
but for unknown reasons it didn't go through...I had a couple of low
level but interesting vagrants late in the afternoon of the 30th at
California City Central Park, a Black and White warbler and an
Indigo bunting, female-type. Both were in the eucalyptus at the
north end of the park, which have a light infestation of lerps. Other
common warblers and a Lazuli bunting were searching the eucs as well.
An adult Peregrine flew over. Butterbredt on the morning of the
31st was quiet, with a Red-breasted nuthatch the only bird of
note. A complete list for both locations is at Ebird. Dave Goodward"
Posting for Dave Goodward...
