Over the past three days there has still been a trickle of typical
early-June landbird migrants passing through, including a few W.
Wood-Pewees, Willow Flycatchers, Swainson's Thrushes, and Western
Tanagers. Singing Swainson's Thrushes at Sorrento Valley, along the SD
River near the SD Mission, and along the SD River west of Mast Park (2)
are all presumably on territory. A Phainopepla at Pt. Loma Nazarene
Univ. on 4 June was probably an early post-breeding disperser from
somewhere else. Seems as though there's been a noticeable influx in
Marbled Godwit numbers already starting around the 3rd or so, which if
not just a shuffling of unknown over-summering birds would suggest that
a lot of failed breeders have come back already over 2-3 weeks early
this year. A Brant and 1 or 2 Reddish Egrets continue on south San Diego
Bay, and there are 9 Ruddy Turnstones and 2 Western Sandpipers at the
saltworks. Finally, at least 7 adult and 2 family-groups of 11 duckling
Redheads are at San Dieguito Lagoon in Del Mar, the only
quasi-consistent breeding locality in the county.
