continuing Little Stint, more Harris’s Hawks, and “other” Tennessee; new Hooded Oriole and Mountain Bluebirds

By – 11:32 am
On Saturday afternoon, the 8th, 3 of the Harris’s Hawks at Jacumba continued in the dead cottonwoods off the northeast part of town, a flock of 17 Mountain Bluebirds was in the large abandoned farm field on the east side of town, and the male Vermilion Flycatcher continued at the pond.On Sunday, the 9th, the Little Stint continues at “Stint Island” off 10th Street between 10:00-10:45AM, and it wasn’t too hard to pick out, as it was one of only two peep present! The Ross’s Goose continues nearby. The rather easy, vocal Tennessee Warbler continues in its one favorite eucalyptus tree at Montgomery Waller Park in Otay Mesa. A new Hooded Oriole, an adult male, is at the upper end of Nestor Park, where also a small flock of Swinhoe’s White-eyes–near the southern limit of where they have been found. [The only other Hooded Oriole known locally this winter–at Sunnyslope Park–is also, perhaps surprisingly, an adult male.]–Paul Lehman, San Diego
