Chestnut-sided, Tennessee Warblers, Point Loma

Chestnut-sided, Tennessee Warblers, Point Loma
By – 10:02 am
We just had quite a flurry of birds at our birdbath in about a 20-minute period, unfortunately all moving around too fast for me to digiscope.  All gone now, but probably still in the area (Albion Street, between Talbot and Jennings). We saw no chestnut on the young Chestnut-sided Warbler, but we saw full white eye ring, yellow crown, two wing bars with one appearing bright yellow, white underside. I’m not 100% confident of the Tennessee. My concern is that the tail seemed longer than expected; otherwise: similar in color and overall to orange-crowned but with white undertail coverts, light underside of tail, long supercilium.  I noticed a “fan” of faint streaking on the cheek; not sure if that means anything but I see Sibley shows it on a 1st-year Tennessee. I hope someone else finds it.     Other birds coming in and out of the birdbath included our FOS White-crowned Sparrow, three white-eyes, three Orange-crowned Warblers, and a Western Tanager.======================Sara Baase MayersPoint Loma (San Diego)======================
