Scarlet Tanager in Point Loma

9:25 am

It might now be in the Point Loma Woods development where the Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher was in July.  At about 9:15AM, it briefly perched at the top of the Chinese Elm tree in our backyard, then flew down to the west. Greenish yellowish tanager with black wing, chunky yellow bill, a little bit of pale edging on wing feathers toward the back (1st yr male?).  I have to leave for an appointment; can’t help relocate it.  (Both Keith and I saw it.) New yard bird!
