This morning I birded the China Ranch Date Farm (Inyo Co) and the Amarogsa River in both directions. The most notable arrival was a male Hooded Oriole just outside the gift shop and later near the parking lot. Also present were 35+ Turkey Vultures, a few Tree and N. Rough-winged Swallows, a singing Black-tailed Gnatcatcher, an Orange-crowned Warbler, White-throated Swifts, many Anna's Hummingbirds, and tons of Lesser Goldfinches. Carl Lundblad Amarogsa Valley, NV
