Bendire's Thrasher Borrego Update 8-20-2020

The bird put on a show for everyone today, 6 to 7:00 am, first foraging in the mowed north pond, and as the light got better, it even perched on the fence on the east side, very close to cameras! After all the satisfied birders left, two pleasant birders from LA showed up, so I hung out with them awhile, and the thrasher again appeared on the west fence line and mesquite. As it warms up, the bird goes for shade and is more difficult to find, it seems.

Le Conte's Thrasher showed up in the scrub east of the ponds, attracting attention because it was calling.
