Desert birding

I visited several spots on the desert today. Overall it was pretty quiet, with a few expected migrants present. Agua Caliente County Park had a single Lincoln’s Sparrow, a Cedar Waxwing and two warblers. The settling ponds in Borrego Springs had several sparrows – the first Brewer’s I’ve seen this fall; a small flock of Bell’s/Sagebrush sparrows; a few Savannahs; and a single Lincoln’s Sparrow. Tamarisk Grove had a work crew there, with chain saws and dump trucks. I skipped it completely.
