The birds above were photographed mostly in November, 2015. Other birds seen more-or-less regularly include Vesper Sparrow, Lincoln’s Sparrow, Northern Harrier,Rock Wren, Audubon’s Warbler, Western Meadowlark, and White-tailed Kite. I’m expecting Mountain Bluebird and Sage Thrasher soon.
This is the coolest car I’ve found out here. It’s abandoned and rusting away. Frazer made 18,591 of these buggys in 1948. Also seen were two 1960s Studebakers, a 1947 Chrysler Windsor, a Hudson Jet, Kaiser Traveler, a Pontiac from the late 40s, a Rover “90,” a 1927 Buick, a 1946 Dodge and a Barracuda from the mid 60s. Some of the dates of these cars are (close) estimates. I used Richard Longworth’s Encyclopedia of American Cars 1930-1980 as a guide.
Kaisers and Frazers were littermates. The most famous Kaisers were the “Henry J” which were cheap smalls car that were often made into hot rods and the “Dragon” a stylish chariot that featured fake “dragon skin” upholstery.
