The stunning flycatcher was seen at 8 a.m. this morning by a few of us. It was still there at 10:30 when I stopped by. The entire time I saw was there, the bird was behind the fire station in the lot - on a fence, cholla or tree. It was not scared off by 3 large, noisy commercial trucks that spent some time there. Thanks again, Bill Kosar.
Also at the fire station were a Curve-billed Thrasher, two Say's Phoebe's, and two singing Cassin's Sparrows.
If you head to Chico, the banding station was very quiet, but the road into the station boasted 4 Sage Thrashers and a few Scaled Quail.
The prairie dog town at Hanover and DeGroot had 4 Burrowing Owls.
