TRV gulls, Escondido
On Sunday the 29th, what is certainly the same adult Lesser Black-backed Gull first seen back on Dec 7th by Aaron G. and Matt S. in the flooded sections of the TRV continues; and there is also a first-cycle Mew and 5+ Bonaparte's continuing as well. At the nearby Las Americas Mall in San Ysidro there's a new, female Vermilion Flycatcher–this morning in the parking-lot tipus next to the Tommy Hilfiger store. And at Sweetwater Reservoir, the 3 Snow Geese continue, present since early Dec.
Yesterday on the Escondido CBC, in the upper Kit Carson Park area, and surrounding streets, there was a Nashville Warbler, Plumbeous Vireo, 3 Western Tanagers, a Black-thr Gray Warbler, and…..a Black-thr Magpie-Jay that's been in the area for several years now.
