November 8, 2016: After 7 years, I am finally putting this day up on my web site. It marks the first time I went birding out of Escobar Gate, I believe. Phil Leighton and the birding crew asked me, a docent, to guide them to where a rare phainopepla had been seen. We saw it again! Over that year and a year or two in the future (?), we saw at least two phainopepla at that tree, now named (by me) the "Phainopepla Tree": a lone valley oak, few leaves of its own, covered in mistletoe -- a favorite Phainopepla food.

I have not put titles on every slide -- too busy with the election. Please leave a comment if you know an ID! Thanks!
