Black and White Warbler in Encinitas

A Black and white Warbler has been visiting our yard on Crest Drive in Encinitas frequently since early November. I've seen it about 20 times since then, usually without trying because it likes to forage on a huge Brazilian pepper tree outside our front door,  This morning it was in the tree with a Red-breasted Nuthatch.  If anyone would like to try their luck in seeing this warbler please email me directly off the list serve.  Or better, send me a text to my number below since I don't monitor my email all day.  Other birds this morning included  Western Tanager, Cedar Waxwing, Cassin's Kingbirds, Western Bluebirds, Song Sparrows, Bewick's Wren, Yellow-rump Warbler, Orange-crown Warbler and hummingbirds.  Observations of the Black and white Warbler have usually been between about 7:30 and 9:30 in the morning.  The Brazilian pepper tree is not visible from the street.
