Broad-winged hawk over Bonita
Saturday morning, Nov 16, at 9:40 a.m. I was birding with visiting Costa Rica birder Mario Cordoba when he calmly asked if Broad-winged Hawks are found around here, to which I of course replied no. And he said, well, what's that being chased by the raven overhead, and sure enough a broad-winged hawk was circling over our head over Bonita Road but it headed east and it looks like it's a migrant so will be impossible to refind rather than it's actually a bird that is wintering locally. But basically it went to to the east or southeast from Bonita road, probably toward Eastlake or Lower Otay Lake or Dulzura….
Earlier in the morning we saw the continuing Grace's warbler and Plumbeous vireo at Via La Jolla Park in La Jolla.
