Cassin's Kingbird

was first heard giving the "chee-burr" call at the Pyles Boys Camp Group Picnic Area on a bluff above Kern River and bordering the Kern River Golf Course. It called a total of 4 times over about a five minute observation period. It flew to four perches during the observation period before flying across the river and out of sight. During one observation the bird showed well its front with the distinct white throat set off by the dark gray chest area. The yellow on the belly showed well too. The single picture I got shows the gray chest, yellow below the chest through the undertail coverts, and dark gray top of head, hind neck, back, and wings.
