Yellow-headed Blackbird, Borrego Settling Ponds

Yesterday morning, there was a juvenile YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD at the Borrego settling ponds.  The bird frequented the mesquite bushes and the lower pond area, which was in the process of being filled.  There was also a WILLOW FLYCATCHER possibly the same reported by Nancy Christensen.  When not in a mesquite bush, the bird was twice seen going back to the green plants in the upper pond.
