This morning Curtis Marantz and I joined others viewing the continuing "large-billed" Savannah Sparrow along the Morro Bay State Park Marina Boardwalk during the high tide. Up to seven Barn Swallows were seen at one time from the boardwalk. No sign of the Tropical Kingbird at the western end of the marina parking, though apparently it was seen today (posted to the Morro Bay State Park Marina Boardwalk eBird hotspot).
In the NE part of the flooded estuary (viewed from South Bay Blvd), there were two male Eurasian Wigeon, the continuing apparent adult Ross's Goose. It appears the goose has been reported as both Ross's and Snow goose, probably because the bill seems a little large, but otherwise the head shape, overall size, and bill markings seem to best fit Ross's. An intergrade male Green-winged Teal showing both a vertical white stripe at the shoulder and a horizontal white strip along the side was in the same area.
The Black-throated Gray Warbler found along SLO Creek during the recent Christmas Bird Count continued in trees along the creek and in the open area east of the Children's Museum.
The male Vermilion Flycatcher continued at Laguna Lake at the northwestern end of the lake front road. No sign of the Clay-colored Sparrow or the Tropical Kingbird this afternoon.
