Arctic Loon - Bonelli Regional Park, Los Angeles Co., California.
September 22nd, 2013. This long staying and perhaps unprecedented inland bird
gave us the best views of any loon that we had on the entire tour.
I doubt if we'll be able to repeat this on future trips!
Blue-footed Boobies - Obsidian Butte, Salton Sea, Imperial Co., California.
September 19th, 2013. Part of a group of 15 present during our visit.
Blue-footed Booby - Lake Skinner County Park, Riverside Co., California.
September 18th, 2013. One of four present n the day we visited.
Mountain Quail - male, Bagby Recreation area, Mariposa Co., California.
September 15th, 2013. Aloof as always, we stumbled across a small roadside group
on Route 49 as we left Mariposa for the long drive around the Rim fire.
Yellow-green Vireo - Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, San Diego Co., California.
September 21st, 2013. I found this bird hard enough to see let alone photograph.
It spent most of its time high in the canopy of the cemetery's Ficus trees but over a ten minute period,
all of our group managed to get reasonable views.
Thanks to Gay Nunn for the find and for getting the news out in such a timely manner.
