Clark's Nutcracker

Shortly after arriving at the 19 mile pullout in the Laguna Mountains, I heard a Clark's Nutcracker. I didn't realize it until we ran into Mark Stratton who was looking for it. Oops! Later at about 13:55 we stopped at the Desert View Overlook. We had a Clark's Nutcracker fly up from the canyon below. It has having a hard time, struggling against the wind. It landed briefly in a bush, then a dead tree, then I lost it in a group of pines south of the overlook. Looks like it might be a good year for nutcrackers as well as Pinyon Jays.
