No Bendire's again

At the settling ponds this morning there were four of us.  No Bendire's, one Crissal seen and one maybe two LeConte's calling.  The Crissal was east of the ponds past the berm and popped up at sunrise, didn't vocalize and then disappeared.  The LeConte's was heard distinctly by Tuck and a nice fella from Ohio doing a lower 48 big year (he's at 669!) in the south west area beyond the ponds.  We thought we heard it again later – about 8:15 vocalizing on the west side along with some quail but about that time a Harrier swooped over and spoiled the party.
