Inca Dove in Coronado, and other birds
) along the east side of the Navy golf course on North Island. The bird was still present today, 28 October, and at least briefly was perched up on a power line a few houses north of the west end of 8th Street (where the Cassin’s Sparrow was last year). Looking from that small pocket park (which is how one can also see orioles and Tropical Kingbirds), with luck, you may be able to spot the dove. I and the original finder have access to the base which of course makes it easier. Most of us likely already saw the long-staying Inca Doves at Roadrunner Club in Borrego Springs a few years ago, but some newer birders perhaps not. If you do make the drive over, consider checking any of the other tree-lined streets around Coronado, particularly those with tipus and flowering Melaleucas, but as always exercise considerate behavior when looking into people’s trees and yards.
