4/6 - The first-of-spring (for me) Swainson's Hawk light morph was circling over the alfalfa fields north of the Bishop Dump.

4/6 - The Chipping Sparrow was in full breeding plumage, in our backyard (Meadowcreek subdivision, Bishop)

4/5 - The Snowy Egret was at Farmer's Ponds with a Black-necked Stilt and two Greater Yellowlegs. The egret was also first of spring for me, except for Phill Kiddoo's county record bird at Furnace Creek in February.
