Chestnut-sided, Tennessee Warblers, Point Loma

Chestnut-sided, Tennessee Warblers, Point Loma
By – 10:02 am
We just had quite a flurry of birds at our birdbath in about a 20-minute period, unfortunately all moving around too fast for me to digiscope.  All gone now, but probably still in the area (Albion Street, between Talbot and Jennings). We saw no chestnut on the young Chestnut-sided Warbler, but we saw full white eye ring, yellow crown, two wing bars with one appearing bright yellow, white underside. I’m not 100% confident of the Tennessee. My concern is that the tail seemed longer than expected; otherwise: similar in color and overall to orange-crowned but with white undertail coverts, light underside of tail, long supercilium.  I noticed a “fan” of faint streaking on the cheek; not sure if that means anything but I see Sibley shows it on a 1st-year Tennessee. I hope someone else finds it.     Other birds coming in and out of the birdbath included our FOS White-crowned Sparrow, three white-eyes, three Orange-crowned Warblers, and a Western Tanager.======================Sara Baase MayersPoint Loma (San Diego)======================

The Prairie Warbler at Robb Field continues in the several ficus trees at the southwest corner of the tennis courts, but this morning is showing no preference for any particular tree and can bury itself and be tough to find at times.Today’s sunny and breezy weather is making it poor for migrants, and my check of outer Point Loma produced a grand total of one pewee and one tanager.Paul Lehman, San DiegoSent from the all new AOL app for Android

NASNI Chestnut-sided Warbler, White-winged Dove

NASNI Chestnut-sided Warbler, White-winged Dove
By – 11:33 am
This morning (20 Sep), a male Chestnut-sided Warbler and a White-winged Dove were along the O St. path inside the fence at Naval Air Station North Island in Coronado. Both birds were roughly here 32.696, -117.190 and likely not visible from outside the base (e.g., from the pocket park at 8th St /Coronado Ave), but they may move south. Otherwise a smattering of more expected migrants there, mainly Warbling Vireos.Justyn StahlNorth Park
