Greetings TPADers. I am writing you from atop beautiful Rand Mountain (Randsburg, CA). We are trying to break a beer bottle by throwing rocks at it, but so far nobody can hit it. I didn't see much worth mentioning today, but I did run into a continuing Hooded Warbler in Ridgecrest CA.
And here are the photos I would have chosen:

As for today, Butterbredt was again a disappointment. No vagrants at all. We did see two good birds at California City though:
|American Bittern is a really good bird for California City. We saw one.|
|Tom (of Tom and Liga) found us this drab little female American Redstart. California City.|
Well, the Desert Extravaganza is finally over and I have to go back to work early in the morning. There's so much that happened during this "Whiskey. Vagrants." trip that I wouldn't even know where to begin. It was fun. Oh yeah, and Justyn finally hit the bottle.
