Good morning birders,
I refound the warbler yesterday afternoon after about an hour searching with Earl and Nico in the area closer to the Slough where it had flown from the big acacia by Gold's Gym minutes before I arrived.
We had gone back to the parking lot across from Gold's when I saw it fly across the street from the big acacia by Gold's! It went to a little acacia directly east, very close to where we were standing! It gave us some great views in that little tree, despite increasing wind.
Eventually it flew east toward Struve Slough again. Everyone dispersed but I stayed to see if it would come back again. And it did! I spotted 2 small yellow birds fly to the big acacia by Gold's, and Grace's was one of them! I got one more good look and then I couldn't find it.
So, clearly, it favors that tree; if it didn't migrate last night and you want to try for it, go to that tree first.
Thank you David Sidle for finding it there and staying to help other birders!
