Baltimore Oriole, Tennessee Warbler & Geese ; Carlsbad Outlet Mall 13 NOV2022

Baltimore Oriole, Tennessee Warbler & Geese ; Carlsbad Outlet Mall 13 NOV2022

By {authorlink} – 3:44 pm

I had a good outing at the Mall today (never said that before). I observed a TENNESSEE WARBLER, a BALTIMORE ORIOLE, and 7 GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE flyover this morning at the Carlsbad Premium Outlet Mall. The TEWA is likely the same  individual that wintered last year, as it was at the exact same location I observed last years bird in Feb. & March (not specific location of bird reports in January). I observed the bird at close range around 8:30 AM. The apparent BAOR was observed around 9:30 AM in the same area as TEWA!  A link to location is here:

The oriole visited many trees around parking lot and then flew across the street toward large Eucs. Last years TEWA also visited both sides of the street. I think this combination makes this specific location attract a wider variety of birds (I mean more than just YRWA which dominate the parking lot Tipus). Pics of the birds are in the following Ebird report.
