- Comments: "Continuing first county record Blue-winged Warbler in Carpinteria Creek found by Nick Lethaby. I entered the creek at Carpinteria Ave. and found a few other birders already watching the bird at about 80-100 yards down creek from the bridge. It was moving between sycamore and cottonwood trees at mid and lower heights. The bird was actively feeding and foliage gleaning in a mixed flock of Bushtits and Townsend's Warblers when seen. It was identified by its greenish upperparts, mainly greenish on the mantle, bright yellow underparts with white undertail coverts and white undersurface to the tail feathers. The face showed a blackish line through the eye and the forehead. The cheek and throat were the brightest yellow-orange color. It had a dark, pointed bill. Wings were bluish-gray with two prominent white wing bars. When it flew it showed white in the tail when spread."
