Yellow-billed Loon, hybrid oystercatcher, southbound seabirds

On Wednesday morning, as of 9:30 a.m., the Yellow billed Loon continues on Mission Bay and is currently with a couple Common Loons on the west side of the West Mission Bay bridge.

Earlier this morning at La Jolla Cove, the hybrid American X Black Oystercatcher was with five Back Oystercatchers, The first time I believe that bird has been reported in a couple months there. Still looks like a hybrid! And offshore, there was still a notable southbound flight going on of several coastal seabirds for the 28th of December, with multiple small to medium flocks of Brant and Surf Scoters and both Pacific and Red-throated Loons.
