I went through Ballinger Cyn on the way to Kern Co today.
The Scott's Orioles have arrived & are in the juniper.
Brewer's Sparrows are singing, and also near the road.
There was also a bright male Cassin's Finch in county.
The nicest surprise was as I was searching for birds on the tops of brush and
a Lesser Nighthawk went into my view and going toward me. (6am).
More Scott's Orioles at Quatal, but outside SB Co.
