Bendire's Thrasher
Ron Auler and I birded the grasslands north of Valle this morning. Target birds were Burrowing Owl, Bendire's Thrasher and whatever goodies presented themselves.

While we struck out on the owls, we did find a pair of Bendire's Thrasher along Willaha Road, along with good numbers of Northern Mockingbird, a few Cassins/Western Kingbird, Loggerhead Shrike, Lark/Black-throated/Vesper Sparrow, Scott's Oriole and a single Mountain Bluebird. Of note were 3 Eastern Meadowlark and a seemingly lost Warbling Vireo.

Also had a nice look at an Eastern Collared Lizard.

Not particularly birdy but the quality was there.
