Made a sweep through Cuyama today, with the principal objectives being Bell's, Black-Chinned, and Brewer's Sparrows. Only found Bell's Sparrows, in Qatal and Ballinger Canyons. Very pleasant day with temperatures initially of 32F, climbing to 75F.
I found a weird thrasher with a white mask; I'd appreciate comments from those who can ID the species. There are some rotten pictures here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35980539
