Horned Grebe

A very unseasonal, partial-alternate HORNED GREBE was on south San Diego Bay this morning, Monday the 3rd, straight west off the J Street/Marina Parkway parking lot. This may be only the third summer-season record for the county. A continuing "Black" Brant on the mudflats there is likely attempting to summer locally. At the saltworks, a count of 7 basic-plumaged Ruddy Turnstones is fairly good for June. A basic-plumaged Common Loon off the I.B. Pier is presumably summering, and a continuing Pelagic Cormorant there would be typical at other times of the year but is somewhat unusual for summer there. As for landbird migrants in the I.B. area today, there was a Willow Flycatcher and 2 Western Wood-Pewees.
