miscellanea, including 'new' T.K. and Black-and-white
On Monday the 3rd, there was a new Black-and-white Warbler, Western Tanager, and Bullock's Oriole bordering the golf course in Coronado, as well as another Bullock's Oriole elsewhere in town. (Also a futile one-hour search in the AM for the Lesser B-b Gull.) On Sunday the 2nd, a Bullock's Oriole was off Soledad Ave. in La Jolla. And on Saturday, the 1st, a Tropical Kingbird was loosely associated with Cassin's near the YMCA just a couple blocks northwest of the bottom end of Famosa Slough. This is likely the same individual reported from around the slough on several occasions during the fall (though not recently) and which is partly-assumed to be a returning bird from last year. Two Bullock's Orioles were nearby off Voltaire.
Also, on Sunday the 2nd, the Ross's Goose continues at the Fairbanks Ranch horse pastures–fide B. Carlson.
