At about 4:30pm January 9, 2021 I briefly saw a Summer Tanager in a Mesquite tree just North of the entrance to the Rose Garden. Yellow underparts leaning towards orange, but that may have been accentuated by the low sun. No wing bars and a heavy yellow bill carrying a yellow berry or fruit. It almost immediately flew north into another tree and I could not find it again. Maybe this is the same bird reported by Gavin Bieber on January 7th.
Also near the Rose Garden entrance was the continuing White-throated Sparrow, and there were about a dozen Cedar Waxwings near the fruiting Chinese Pistache tree by the walled enclosure between the two ponds.
Leaving the park along S. Randolf Way there was a Peregrine Falcon on the very high antenna structure.
