Jacumba: Lark Bunting, 3 Harris’s, 2 Plumbeous, dark-lored White-crowned

12:42 pm

A pleasant visit to Jacumba this morning, 2 November, started out at dawn at a few degrees below freezing but it quickly warmed up. The top highlight was a Lark Bunting in a small flock of Vesper and Brewer’s Sparrows in the abandoned ag fields on the SOUTH side of the main road and about 100-200 yards west of the west end of Jacumba International Airport. Other highlights included 3 continuing Harris’s Hawks all together, 2 separate Plumbeous Vireos at the opposite ends of town, and an adult dark-lored White-crowned Sparrow. Other species of note included Scott’s Oriole, continuing male Vermilion Flycatcher, Green-tailed Towhee, 4 Lawrence’s Goldfinches, 2 lingering Cassin’s Kinbirds, continuing White-breasted and 6 Red-breasted Nuthatches, continuing Red-shouldered Hawk, and a Lesser Scaup.
