Finally the DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER in Nestor was reported again today (Sunday), by Bruce Rideout; the first time since the CBC on the 16th (bird actually found the day before the CBC). It is interesting how few people seem to trying for it, given it is only 50 feet away from where one parks one's car to see the Red-throated Pipit.... Anyway, up until now, all flycatcher sightings over the gate have been between 8:50-10:30 AM, whatever significance that may have. And where the bird goes when it is NOT present there (which is often the case!), is still not known.
In the north county, the following have been seen:
DECEMBER 23 in Carlsbad/Oceanside--
ORCHARD ORIOLE: female-type with Bullock's in sycamores, sweet gums, and carrotwood trees along Seascape Drive in s. Carlsbad
BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER: 1 returning bird at end of El Arbol and a new bird in a private HOA park, both in Carlsbad
AMERICAN REDSTART: female in condo complex off Magnolia/Jefferson in Carlsbad
