    Hi All,
    
    The very cooperative Lark Bunting posed for photos on the "south lawn". It kept pretty close to the edge of the canyon but foraged on the open grass most of the time. It was within 40 feet of33.768853, -118.419314 the whole time I was there - more than an hour. Very near Paseo Del Mar and Via Alvarado.

    - Comments: "After Mark saw and alerted me to this bird and we searched the general area as Mark described (middle meadow area) but we did not find it. Later I photographed the Black-and-White Warbler. I saw a bird with an olive-green back, white eyering,
    and a hint of a rufous stripe on its crown. It was smaller than a Hermit Thrush or a Swainson's Thrush. I never saw a front view. It was perched low and quickly flew into some thick willows and disappeared. It was in the general area with the Black-and White
    Warbler but a little to the west. Sorry no pictures."

    - Comments: "I am assuming this is actually the same bird seen in late July. Thought I might have gotten a glimpse of it Thursday, so very happy to get such a good look today. Brown body and head, a little bigger overall than an Orange-crowned Warbler or
    Yellowthroat, with a complete white eye ring around a large dark eye. Distinct dark striping on a white breast and flank. A bit of an orange crown bordered by dark stripes. Vocalized loudly enough for even me to hear by repeating a distinct chip, sounding
    something like a "tsk" to me. It moved among the branches of willows (never on the floor) just south of the east end of the middle road (sorry, not able to give coordinates). These would be the willows immediately west of the Kelt Area, if you have access
    to a map of the preserve. There is actually a very narrow secondary path that runs through those very willows. I observed the bird on both sides of that path before it moved further south and out of sight. Sorry, but I once again failed to get a photo."

    The TROPICAL KINGBIRD at the Earvin Magic Johnson Recreation Area in Willowbrook was present through November 29. It was last reported west of the south parking lot.
    
    A CAVE SWALLOW was at Santa Fe Dam in Irwindale from November 30-December 1. There have been numbers of Tree Swallows and White-throated Swifts over the lake and these flocks should be checked for the Cave Swallow.
    Cliff Swallows of course should be absent at this time.

    The VERDIN continued at White Point Nature Preserve in San Pedro through November 25. It has been around the garden and parking lot.
    
    Five MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRDS were along the San Gabriel River in Pico Rivera on November 25. They were adjacent to the San Gabriel Coastal Basin Spreading Grounds (between Whittier and Washington Blvd.).
    
    The BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER continued at Madrona Marsh in Torrance through November 30. It has been by the large cottonwood at the southwest corner of the preserve (closest to the Chevron station across the street).

    Hi,
    
    Becky and Steve Turley and I stumbled upon a Grasshopper Sparrow at Santa Fe Dam next a dirt lot between lots 4 and 5, directly across from the concrete ramp leading to large dumpsters.We were unable to relocate the Lark Bunting.

    After spending over three fruitless hours searching for the Lark Bunting at
    Santa Fe Dam, it was nice to see a Swamp Sparrow near restroom #1.
    The bird was pointedout to me by Tom Miko at about 10:30 this
    morning.
    
    Happy birding,
