The Lewis’ woodpecker continued this morning around 8:50 at eastern Penasquitos Canyon, perching and giving single note “peek” calls from the top of the tallest sycamore just off the SW edge of the pipe corral about 100-200 yds west of the adobe ranch house.The magnolia warbler continued in upper San Dieguito Park around 11 am, foraging in the tallest eucalyptus on the east side of the parking lot opposite & to the NE of the tot lot & playground area where it was previously frequenting.The Rancho Santa Fe Christmas Bird Count will continue as scheduled tomorrow.  I’m praying that the weather tomorrow will follow that of each day this week – dismal forecasts of rain all day being frequently revised & at least enough pockets of no or light rain to make birding possible.  I encourage participants to regularly check local doppler radar and hourly forecasts.  Stay safe but please at least attempt a token effort to cover your pre-assigned areas.  (Due to covid precautions, there will be no compilation meeting or lunch, but please try to get at least a species list to me before Fri morning so we can share preliminary results.  If it’s easier for you than submitting the previously sent checklist & forms, I’ll accept results on eBird lists as long as those lists are either shared to me through eBird or copied and pasted into an email, and the time and mileage effort are forwarded.)Thanks & good luck!Robert PattonSan Diego, CA
