Golden-crowned Kinglet continues on Foxhall Drive in San Marcos

6:07 pm

Alison Hiers and I saw the continuing Golden-crowned Kinglet along
Foxhall Drive outside Discovery Lake in San Marcos today. Took a
concerted effort of looking. It was not vocalizing. We saw it in pine
trees in the tiny public grassy area on the west side of Foxhall.

The Tipu trees on Foxhall must be heavily infested with insects. They
were crawling with Yellow-rumped Warblers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, at
least five Townsend’s Warblers and a few Orange-crowneds. May be a good
spot to check regularly during migration. I think we spent as much time
birding along a single block of the road between Poppy and Discovery
Lake park as we did birding around the lake.  List from our first pass
of the road area with a few crappy photos of the Golden-crowned Kinglet:

As has been the case for some time there was no sign of the Rusty
Blackbird at the lake.
