returning hybrid wigeon, new Baltimore Oriole

On Friday morning, the 27th, there's a new, bright female Baltimore Oriole in town–this one in Solana Baeach, though unfortunately on private property. Also a Western Tanager nearby. The hybrid drake Eurasian X American Wigeon has returned yet again, now for some 5+ years, to the Del Mar area. Usually, its with the wigeon flock at San Dieguito Lagoon, but currently the horse pastures near Fairbanks Ranch are partially flooded, with a good number of ducks in residence, and the bird was there this AM.
