A quick stop at MacKenzie Park (State and Alamar) yielded a male BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER in the Tipu trees along the eastern baseball field.
There are also two productive lerpy red gum Eucalyptus here with lots of birds. There are two in the main parking lot, the northern of that pair drawing most of the birds and another Located directly behind the MacKenzie center that also has lots of activity. Birds present today in these trees: HERMIT, AUDUBON’S, YELLOW, NASHVILLE, ORANGE-CROWNED, and WILSON’S WARBLERS, CEDAR WAXWING, WESTERN TANAGER, WARBLING VIREO, and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, among others. These trees are drawing in good numbers and diversity—keep an eye out for any additional lerp-infested red gums and please post any that are accessible and productive.
Other than the Black-and-white Warbler, the Tipus continue to attract/hold very few birds.
