Re: SE Balboa Park, 29 Feb 2020

I ran into Millie and Peter Thomas this morning at this location, and together we refound the male Orchard Oriole at about 10AM (in the same tipu and bare cottonwoods in the dip described by Phil, before it absconded deep into the golf course), the female Yellow Warbler, and the Chipping Sparrows and Juncos.  The Black-and-White Warbler continued by the bathrooms.  

Before Millie and Peter left we had a mystery bird in the tipu that we never got good looks at, but seemed to be a female tanager or oriole.  After they left, I got better looks at this bird, which turned out to be a female Bullock's Oriole.  I managed adequate pictures of the orioles, along with perhaps my worst ever picture of a Townsend's Warbler, which are included in this checklist:
