Began at Lake Los Carneros. Only bird of note was a single Western Tanager. Good day for raptors. Saw Red-tailed, Red-shouldered and Cooper's Hawks, White-tailed Kite, American Kestral and Turkey Vulture. So many birds of prey seems to indicate lots of meat around. Rabbits and rodents must have had a good summer.
Went to the Coronado seep next and just sat above the puddle for about 45 minutes and was richly rewarded. Birds seen (in roughly ascending order of interest) were:
Common Yellowthroat (female only)
Orange-crowned Warbler (two races)
Wilson's Warbler (lots)
Black-throated Gray Warbler
There were also two species of Empidonax flycatchers that were not Pac. Slope. Jim Hodgeson was there for one of these. I was with Don and Marge when they photographed the (likely) MacGillivray's Warbler a few days ago but it did not reappear while I was there this morning.
