continuing Ea. Phoebe, Tropical Kingbird, Plumbeous; Myrtle glut
By – 11:47 am
On Sunday the 21st, the Eastern Phoebe first found by Joe A. several days ago continues at the northeast end of Liberty Station Park. Also at Liberty Station, the Tropical Kingbird continues with Cassin’s along Woodworth Way or on the golf course at the end of that road. Present since early Oct, it is likely a returning wintering bird at this site and makes for approx. 5 Tropical Kingbirds in the county this late November: this bird, 2 at Dairy Mart, National City, and Coronado/NASNI. Also continuing today is the returning, wintering Plumbeous Vireo in Wing Street Canyon.”Myrtle” Yellow-rumped Warblers are regular visitors in small numbers, and I typically see a couple every day I go birding between October and April or May in a variety of habitats if I stare at a large enough number of “Audubon’s.” [If one goes birding in riparian habitat with poison oak understory, then the number of Myrtles can be much higher.] But for the past month, I’ve been seeing clearly more Myrtles than I normally do in this county. Probably more like 6+ per day, without really looking specifically for them.–Paul Lehman, San Diego
