We visited the Anza Trail again and took a trip to Buenos Aires NWR to explore the Antelope trail. Most of the bird action was around the visitors centre but the Antelope Trail had plenty of Horned Larks and a pair of Bendire's Thrashers. We stayed in one area of Madera Canyon on hopes of finding a reported Varied Bunting but had no luck. The list for the trip stands at 302.
