Notable S. Carlsbad Observations
By – 3:42 pm
This morning, 17FEB2022, the Carlsbad Premium Outlets GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE continues east of the Salvation Army storage container at the usual corner of parking lot. No sign of the Palm Warbler or Tennessee Warbler at nearby Tipus where they were last seen in mid-January. I did observe the presumedly continuing TENNESSEE WARBLER at the other end of the Outlet parking lot about 600 yards to the south. I observed it in an oak tree at (33.124323, -117.319943).  The bird looks significantly different from January with a good amount of blue-gray feathers on its head. I first spotted it in a large white blooming eucalyptus  on other side of Paseo Del Norte in front of  the Windmill. I was very lucky and it flew from high in the Euc., across the street in to the oak tree right next to me (lucky!, the interesting birds always seem to fly away).

A quick ebird species map scan only has 3 CAVI in Southern California in the last 30 days, including this bird and the one in Carmel Valley.Tito GonzalezCarlsbad, CA
