Returning November yard birds NE El Cajon

Four late November uncommon species yard birds seen today, 25 November 2018 in NE El Cajon included the continuing White-winged dove, apparently it's second year of "wintering" in this locale, along with an adult male Hooded oriole making "winter" feeder appearances here for a third consecutive year as well as a Plumbeous vireo, a species that now passes through the yard yearly in November. Also, a adult White-throated sparrow was skulking about in the shrubs trading loud, metallic "chink" (brief cell phone recording made) calls with the White-crowned flock's lighter weight "tsink" calls, possibly a return visit of the first year bird photographed in the yard last November… Sadly, I didn't get up from my coffee and easy chair to get a camera until the Plumbeous showed up. Slacker.
