I was watching a Yellow-rumped Warbler when another bird chased it off: a beautiful Palm Warbler! Pale supercilium, lightly streaked sides, yellow undertail coverts, tail pumping constantly as it foraged high in a cypress slightly east of the Murphy Windmill's driveway. It flew into the cypress next to a big euc that's adjacent to the paved pedestrian path.
A small flock of Yellow-rumps, Townsend's, White-crowned and Song Sparrows, and Hermit Thrushes were working the southeast corner of the maintenance yard behind the Windmill (trucks were getting washed so it sounded like a waterfall, bringing in the birds for a bath).
