Lucy's Warbler

On Tuesday morning, there is a Lucy's Warbler in the upper section of San Dieguito Park in inland Solana Beach, close to the Rancho Santa Fe boundary. This is the smaller, upper section of the park which has a $3 entrance fee if you drive in, however there are a bunch of free, dirt parking slots just outside the gate. On Highland Avenue just north of Lomas Santa Fe and just south of Sun Valley Road. The park officially opens at 9:00 a.m., and I have no idea if it ever opens early or not. The Lucy's is frequenting the large tipu trees, which are loaded with yellow rumps and orange crowns and Ruby crowns.

On private property nearby there's a continuing bullocks oriole and a western tanager. Yesterday, up in southern Carlsbad, I had two or three Bullock's Orioles on private property, and at least one of Tito's Mountain Bluebirds continues at the big horse pasture on the northeast side of Batiquitos Lagoon. Scope needed.
