Cassin's Vireo in Hillcrest

Dear friends,

I just had the most delightful surprise in the paloverde tree in my front yard at 1076 Hayes Ave.: a Cassin's Vireo. I got to watch it at distances as close as 6 feet for a full 10 minutes as it foraged in company with a female Townsend's Warbler. Then it flew off across the street. I don't recall hearing of any reported on any of the San Diego County Christmas bird counts this winter, and I don't see any recent reports via eBird for San Diego County in the past month.

Good birding,

Philip Unitt
