Lazuli Gatherings? Where?

The past couple of years I've been able to find Lazuli Buntings pretty easily around Santee etc.  This year I have yet to find one.  I've tried Mission Trails multiple times, Marston Canyon yesterday in the NW edge by those orange colored pine trees close to 163.  I was even in SE AZ for 4 days, saw Flame-Colored Tanager and Elegant Trogon for the first time, and did not see a single Lazuli.

Is there somewhere that's reliable this year for small flocks of Lazuli Buntings, sort of like the Fortuna Staging area in Santee has been in past years?   I still have yet to see a single Lazuli in 2018!
