Jacumba on Monday
By – 12:33 pm

A morning visit to Jacumba on Monday the 31st produced 4 continuing Harris’s Hawks, a rare, eastward-dispersing American Crow, a record-late by 10 days Cassin’s Kingbird (the species does not winter there), a rare Townsend’s Solitaire, a Red-naped Sapsucker, Scott’s Oriole, and 2 continuing eastward White-breasted Nuthatches. Great-tailed Grackle is a species not normally thought of as migratory in most of San Diego County, but the occasional disperser/migrant is found in areas where not of normal occurrence, and today a flock of 6 birds flew from east to west HIGH over Jacumba (where not present since August) and certainly seemed to be on the move.
