ancient B-t Gray, Nashvilles, MIA Painted Redstart & Hepatics

By – 10:48 am
Thanksgiving morning, an adult male Black-throated Gray Warbler in UTC is hardly a big deal, but it is undoubtedly the same bird back to the same three tipus trees in the same business-park courtyard now for at least 6 winters. Also in UTC, there are TWO Nashville Warblers together–one bright and one rather dull–in the tipus in the Standley Middle School block; BUT the returning Painted Redstart there has not been reported since initially turning up this season from Oct 7-10, so perhaps something bad has befallen it. And speaking of MIA, the rather long-staying female-type Hepatic Tanager in San Dieguito County Park, which we thought looked like it was going to winter there, has not been reported since Nov 4th–but there is a female-type Summer Tanager there currently, to confuse the matter. Our other returning Hepatics, at North Clairemont Park, Del Mar, and Tierrasanta, have all NOT yet been reported this season.–Paul Lehman, San Diego
