San Diego Mission Black-throated Green Warbler

San Diego Mission Black-throated Green Warbler
By – 10:12 am
The Black-throated Green Warbler at the San Diego Mission, not to be confused with the one in Allied Gardens, is still present today, February 3rd. As eBirded by finder Joe Alsadi several days ago, the bird was first found back in early December but hardly looked for again given the presence of the Allied Gardens bird. The Mission bird is along the beginning of the driveway that goes around to the back of the Mission, turning off San Diego Mission Road on the east side of the Mission. Immediately along the right side of the driveway, along the San Diego River Channel are several lerpy eucalyptus, the bird likes to feed in those trees and also occasionally goes across the driveway to the left side on the little hillside that has a pepper tree and other eucalyptus. For those of you who saw the Gray Catbird that wintered here about 10 or 11 or 12 years ago, these trees are immediately before the big patch of peppers on the right where the catbird wintered and where the driveway makes a sharp bend to the left. There is no parking right at the warbler spot, so either park out on San Diego Mission Road or continue up the driveway and park behind the Mission in the parking lot next to the St Francis Center and Chapel and walk back down. Also a western tanager is here.Paul Lehman, San DiegoSent from the all new AOL app for Android
