8 Chestnut-sided Warblers, Plumbeous Vireo

2:06 pm

A Plumbeous Vireo yesterday (6 Mar) along Arriba Street in UTC was only a block from Doyle Park so is likely the same bird seen the previous month at Doyle.
With the addition of yet another winter Chestnut-sided Warbler the past two days at Lake Murray, this season’s total in the county now stands at an amazing EIGHT individuals. The previous high count during a single winter was an impressive four birds in 2010-2011. Here’s this season’s assemblage:
12 Nov-27 Feb  Encinitas
6 Dec-2 Mar  Jamul  (inland)
16 Dec-3 Mar  Pantoja Park, downtown
27 Dec-5 Mar  Hosp Grove Park, Carlsbad
10 Jan-26 Feb  San Ysidro
16 Jan  Ocean Beach
25-27 Feb  Mira Mesa
6-7 Mar  Lake Murray
Many wintering Chestnut-sideds stay well into April.
