I tried to make this into a Northern Shrike based on the prominent eye arcs and what seemed like a longer bill. But the mask is plenty wide, and there is no trace of brown barring on the underparts.

2015-01-17: NM: Rattlesnake Springs to Carlsbad

@LakeCBD: Lake Carlsbad
@Rattle: Rattlesnake Springs
@WashR: Washington Ranch
@day: Rattlesnake Springs to Carlsbad
@road1: Washington Ranch to US 62-180
Route
0930, Rattlesnake Springs, just above the ford.
0945, afoot, walking west from the gate.
1230, rolling.
There was a group of about 15 working their west through Rattlesnake when I overtook them. I didn't know who they are but they all carried quality optics, and they seemed awfully serious, not like a tour group.
So of course I couldn't help goofing on them. I walked into the middle of the group, who had just left the riparian habitat at the far end of the picnic area. “Did you see the Piratic Flycatcher,” I asked one gent. He just stared. “How could you miss it?” I continued. “It was right between the Common Crane and the Rufous-necked Wood-Rail!” Stony silence from all. A grim, humorless, excessively professional group. My theory is that the three I mentioned are “birder's birds,” and Real Ornithologists disdain those as outliers. Clearly I was some sort of frivolous person and could be ignored.
I later found out they were all honchos of the Texas Ornithological Society on their way to a TOS meeting in El Paso. Much is now explained. They're right, of course. As John Hubbard always emphasized, outliers are fun, and may be evidence of range expansion, but real population biologists don't care about the edges of the distribution as much as they are about the condition of the core gene pool at the center.

Route
(partial)
1120, afoot at Hobbs City Park. Managed to trip over my own feet and lacerate my left kneecap. A sad day for birding: exactly one bird, a Great-tailed Grackle.
I visited the former site of Maddox Lake, which was the cooling pond for a gas-fired generating station. Sadly, the station is shut down and there is no lake anymore.
I also visited Ocotillo Park north of Hobbs. They have recently expanded the golf course, and it looks like the perimeter road, that has been productive for me in the past, is now blocked off to vehicle traffic. Another good spot gone bad.
