    Greetings,
    
    Tried for Lark Bunting and Lucy's Warbler at the stake out without success.
    
    The Red-necked Grebe was at Lake Machado at the north end. Didn't see the Tropical Kingbird but was told it was hanging out below the dam yesterday and this morning.
    
    Good birding!

    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.
