Only a few birds of interest off La Jolla this morning (29 May), including a rather late Parasitic Jaeger (dark morph) and a getting late Northern Fulmar, which a few are still present offshore following this past winter’s incursion. About 30 Black-vented Shearwaters. Still at least 4 Black Oystercatchers present on the rocks, and it would be great if somebody could determine whether or not they are trying to nest (if so, probably in the Goldfish Point area?). Also a basic-plumaged Black Turnstone is late and may or may not try to summer locally.
Tipu-laden parking lots still appear to be supporting at least a few migrants, with today’s check of that habitat in UTC dominated by several Warbling Vireos.
