Another update on Corn Creek Field Station, Desert National Wildlife Range near Las Vegas, NV: My husband and I birded Corn Creek this morning, and were treated to the song of the Brown Thrasher, though we did not see him. We did get to see the Hammond's Flycatcher and Green-tailed Towhee, and heard a report of the Fox Sparrow from another birder. We all had great looks at a Cassin's Vireo in association with the Hammond's Flycatcher. While watching a flock of American Goldfinches and Pine Siskins drinking along the spring channel, in came the Harris's Sparrow with its bright pink bill, which I assume is the same individual from winter. There were plenty of Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Lucy's Warblers, and hummingbirds feeding in the locust tree flowers. Kevin and I had a brief look at a female oriole at the top of a tree, but it quickly flew, avoiding identification.
