I birded Oasis Ranch on the 5th, and at the north-west edge of the Cottonwood grove I found a second year male Vermillion Flycatcher sitting along a fence line with two Cassin's Kingbirds and a Black Pheobe. Oasis Ranch is a really great birding spot, but it's also private property, so please don't jepordize it for others, ask permission to bird there before looking for these birds. Kristie Nelson tells me that there are just a couple of prior records for each of these species in Mono County. Good luck!
