It was perched on a thin wire on right side of road (as one is headed nw.) about 15 feet above scraggly line of willows. The first first house on right side has a hummingbird feeder but somewhat dangerous hostile occupants. The second house (100-200 yards past) had very friendly occupants who rehab injured birds. Costa’s was between two houses, unfortunately, nearer first house and flew in that direction.

First reported on July 16 by Nic Norte with credit to Mark and Denise Vollmar and Eileen Cunningham who discovered them during their Bluebird Box Survey.
