Mt Soledad – Black Swift and crossbills

9:50 am

A single Black Swift flew by the summit at Mt Soledad heading N/NW today around 8AM. I’ll post (poor quality) pictures in an eBird report later today. Conditions seemed decent for Black Swifts – low, overcast cloud coverage and cold. Similar conditions are expected the rest of this week.

Other interesting flybys this morning: a northbound flock of seven Red Crossbills giving their distinctive “jip jip jip” flight calls and a northbound Great-tailed Grackle getting harassed by a Cassin’s Kingbird
