Dusky woodswallows, white-winged trillers and rufous songlarks are still relatively easy to find on the western end of Cooleman Ridge.  This morning I observed 11 dusky woodswallows which seems to have come together in a new spot post breeding, as more than half of them were juvenile or dependent young (9 sitting close together).  Nearby two white-winged trillers, both in female plumage were feeding two fully grown young. 
Rufous songlarks are also still around, though much less obvious and calling very differently than prior to the end of 2004.  Stubble quail are also very common, mostly heard rather than seen, with over 10 calling in the general area yesterday morning.
