This morning, 2/22/21, I started at Thamien Park on the Guadalupe River, crossed over to the east levee and walked to Trimble Road and returned by the west levee. Immediately downstream of Trimble on the west levee, I saw a WILSON'S WARBLER. It had quite a bit of dark matting on its throat, presumably from feeding on the local eucalypts. Based on the county notebooks, wintering Wilson's are found from about 11 Oct to 19 Mar. Over the years we have encountered five or six birds during this winter period. Late March brings the spring arrivals plus ongoing migrants in large numbers.
