We had a LeConte's Thrasher during the birding festival on 3/4/2016. Seen at Old Springs Open Space Reserve near Borrego Springs. My notes say "We waited almost an hour near a nest before it came out of cover. Running fast on the ground with tail up, very cute." I realize "cute" is not a diagnostic mark, but life lists are for fun anyway, right? I've forgotten who the leader was, but the markings and behavior were correct, and the leader was a well-respected desert expert. The birding festival list indicates it was not seen in 2017 at the festival.
