Cameron/Rimmy Jim/Elden Spring
Jim Logan, Roger Radd, Chuck LaRue and I traveled to Cameron this morning to look for migrants. Cameron seep had good numbers of warblers in the tree tops and we spent a pleasant hour just sitting above the seep sifting thru them. 9 warbler species were found.

We next headed to Rimmy Jim Tank where highlights included 1, maybe 2 Willow Flycatcher, 2 Baird's Sandpipers and a Great Horned Owl flushed from a ground position.

We ended the day at Elden Springs where we found an out-of-place Yellow-breasted Chat and a Cassin's Vireo.
