I apologize for using the list for this purpose, but I do not have Martin Byhower's current email address (however, emails I write to his old email address have not bounced back, as undeliverable): He told me about a Sandhill Crane that spent the winter in Palos Verdes. There was no "LA County Birds" at the time (or was this bird not posted). Thanks to him, I saw this bird. Much to my surprise, none of the local birders who saw this wintering bird have entered it into eBird, so I want to get the ball rolling on this topic. If you also saw this bird, contact me, and I will share the eBird entry with you. Tom Miko Claremont (Hey, it wasn't 110F, today!) 909.241.3300
