      Hi,

      Th, 5/23/13: NORTHERN PARULA - Cerro Coso Community College in
      Ridgecrest - foraged on upper end of sculpture garden lawn for eight
      minutes (11:35am-11:43am) in close proximity to a "female" type
      Townsend's Warbler before flying toward cottonwood grove uphill of
      lawn. Not pursued further due to "killer" view out in the open on
      lawn including intense bluish color showing on head when light angle
      was right which was wonderfully often! Exceedingly nice to see this
      species completely out in the open for eight minutes on lawn and away
      from hide-from-me branches and leaves in trees!

      Not very birdy, but also present during 11:10am-11:47am visit:
      Western Wood-Pewee 3, Gray Flycatcher 1, calling Pacific-slope
      Flycatcher 1, Empid 1, Warbling Vireo 1, Common Raven 2, Swainson's
      Thrush 3, MacGillivray's Warbler 1m, Yellow-rumped Warbler 2,
      Townsend's Warbler 3 (2f types, 1m), Wilson's Warbler 6, House Finch 3,...

      All except Common Ravens spent considerable time foraging on lawn.

      Wind became quite strong at leaving.
