Keith & I concentrated on the Baumgartner & Wheeler house (11:00-11:50), as well as the Sprague Pipit site near Pretzer & Tweedy (12:45-1:15). Our driving route began at the Santa Cruz Flats: Red Rock feedlot (separate eBird list) and worked generally N into Santa Cruz Flats via Hollis, Coachway, Cripple Creek, Baumgartner, Baumgartner/Wheeler, Curtis, Fast Track,, Greene Reservoir, Picacho, Pretzer, and Tweedy. Once we found the pipit, we wound up our birding and scooted towards home. We did not examine the main sod farm fields. Besides the cited house, the busiest spot was along Cripple Creek Rd. In particular, this area had various sparrow species. Sadly, there was also a dead Javelina in the same general area, a victim of a car.

    Comments: One of the two cited Roadrunners was on Fast Track. There may have been two there. Recently, three were seen in this area by Steve & Joan Hosmer. Our bird went into a tree. A short distance beyond this, we noticed a Roadrunner on the berm edging the field. Neither of us saw the first bird leave the tree, but it may have done so.

    Comments: –continuing bird // When standing on the road edge and looking at the house, there is an orange tree at the left end of the house. Using this orange tree for reference, the warbler was first two trees left of the orange tree. About 20 minutes later (11:50a.m.), the warbler was again spotted. This time it was in the background of the left end of the house. It was on a pinkish stucco wall-fence. Both times the warbler was visible for a very short time.
