On 1 June a California Towhee was found by the Steeles at Baker Meadow. This is an amazing record (photographed by Bob) since it is far north of their known range. This normally sedentary species has thus far only been recorded as far north as just south of Lone Pine. That said, it is not normally seen north of Sage Flat, west of Olancha.
