Baird's, White-winged, Vermilion

Today, the 23rd, there was a juv Baird's Sandpiper at the salt works on S San Diego Bay, perhaps a continuing bird. (The 3 Baird's also continue today at San Dieguito Lagoon–fide B. L. Carlson.) A worn female Vermilion Flycatcher at the Sunset ball fields in the TRV is probably a returning bird from last winter.

On the 21st, there was a White-winged Dove along Monument Road in the TRV. A Marsh Wren in a weedy ditch in the TRV was at a non-breeding site and thus somewhat early for a migrant, or at least a bit early as a post-breeding wanderer from a nesting area not overly far away. Also my first-of-season B-t Gray Warbler, plus several Lazuli Buntings.
