^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In general, birds that are on this weekly summary are those that are 
classified as at least rare in “Birds of Southern California” by Garrett 
and Dunn, “Birds of the Salton Sea” by Patten, McCaskie, and Unitt, or 
in “Birds of the Lower Colorado River Valley” by Rosenberg, Ohmart, 
Hunter, and Anderson. Rarity can be regional or seasonal. For example, a 
nuthatch reported at the Salton Sea, where it is rare, may be on the 
summary. That same bird reported from the San Bernardino Mountains, 
where it is common, would not be. A sparrow reported as a rarity in 
Riverside in July, may be common there in December.
