A group of Santa Barbara birders cruised the Cuyama area on Saturday and
had a beautiful dark morph Ferruginous Hawk. The bird was in a large
field on the north side of 166 between Highway 33 and Kirchenmann Road,
just east of the sign for Tut Brothers Farm.

Also seen were lots of standard Ferruginous Hawks, 2 Prairie Falcons, 1
Merlin, 1 Golden Eagle, 3-4 Mountain Bluebirds, 1 Sage Thrasher, several
Sage Sparrows and Lawrence's Goldfinches. No Mountain Plovers,
Longspurs, or Solitaires were seen.
