and Lark find Santa Barbara County's first Wood Thrush
-- their first ever "first for county" bird in California
After more than 2 decades of wondering by dozens of
California birders as to when it would happen, Lark and Jim
practically tripped over this Wood Thrush in Santa Maria in
north Santa Barbara County on their first excursion to
Waller Park while seeking a "resident" Cackling Goose!
the last 2 photos of the bird, before it headed north never seen
again . . .
