Little Stint, etc.

12:00 pm

The Little Stint appeared this morning on “stint island” at 10:05 AM, and as usual it tended to frequent the inside (left side) of the island, at and just before the bend/elbow. It is now in alternate plumage, but it is not the brightest bird in the world and is assumed to be a female. It has now appeared most recent days sometime between about 9:45-1:00. It should be departing any day now, so if you wish to see it, go sooner than later! And overcast days are best so that there is minimal heat distortion.
Visiting birders today have reported the continuing wintering Plumbeous Vireo at the B&B and the continuing wintering Hepatic Tanager in Wing Street Canyon, the latter setting a new late date for a wintering bird by several days.
