Hi, Just received a phone call from Gary File. He and Steve Williams were at the Kern River Preserve hummingbird feeders viewing site at first light this morning. Up to six birders in all during the morning. Three still remaining. BOTTOM LINE No sightings of the Violet-crowned Hummingbird today through Noon..I don't know if those three remaining plan to remain the rest of the day to either verify the continued presence or the first all day absence of this bird since it was first found by John Stanek and Matt Toemies at dawn this past Saturday, July 7, 2018. Even so, after the early morning viewing yesterday, the rest of that day's multiple observations were all made from 12:25 pm up until 5 pm (with no negative or positive reports yesterday after 5 pm). Serving as the Messenger, Bob Barnes
