Santee Lakes Blackburnian Warbler, Jacumba 8 Harris’s Hawks and Summer Tanager

On Friday morning, visiting Sacramento birder Steve Abbott has photographed yet another Blackburnian Warbler in the county, this one at Santee Lakes. They had the bird in sycamores over the gazebo that is just north of the general store at Lake #5.I am spending Friday morning at Jacumba, where all eight Harris’s Hawks are still accounted for, although today they were back early in the morning along the northern edge of town, where they originally were back in September. But they didn’t last too long and after that they disappeared. The other highlight in town today is an adult male Summer Tanager. The male Vermilion flycatcher continues at the pond, and American Robin numbers have increased some more.
