      Kern River Preserve, Weldon, Kern County, California

      YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO:
      An individual of this species was "cueing" incessantly from 7am-7:15am this
      morning along the Kern River Preserve's Nature Trail from 40 meters south of
      signpost 18 to 100 meters northwest of signpost 19. It was also seen in flight
      between the two locations.

      The same or a second individual of this species was heard "cueing" in the
      vicinity of the Birders' Board and entrance driveway to the Kern River
      Preserve
      between 10:30am and 10:45am this morning.

      SUMMER TANAGER:
      Several individuals of this species are attracted to the ever-ripening grapes
      on the arbor at the back border of the courtyard at Kern River Preserve
      Headquarters. Also partaking of the grapes are: Nuttall's Woodpecker, Downy
      Woodpecker, American Robin, Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak, and House
      Finch. In addition, a ground squirrel and Audubon's cottontails are
      munching on
      accessible grapes.
