Chestnut-sided Warbler + others, Pt. Loma

9:33 am

At about 8:30 this morning, Keith and I found a big flurry of birds in one of the pepper trees at the south end of Silvergate, just before the Navy gate.  The light was poor and all the birds were moving around fast. The one we’re almost certain was a (young) Chestnut-sided, seen from below, was uniformly very pale gray on the underside, had two distinct white wing bars; Keith had a glimpse of yellow-green on the back, and he saw black spots at the end of the white tail.

     In the same tree were Yellow, Wilson’s, and Orange-crowned Warblers, two Western Tanagers, three large hummers (presumably Anna’s, though we missed detail), a junco, and a white-eye (or something better, but, as the others, moving fast and in poor light).

     Sorry for the late post. My post from there failed to go through for a dumb reason.
