The black & white is in the trees right by the back of Alta Bates acting
like a nuthatch. Wait—now he’s in front of 2999 Tegent.

The black & white was nowhere to be seen by 1:30 or so. I stuck around
quite a while with a couple of other birders, but he was a no show. There
were yellow-rumped & Townsend's, juncos, ruby crowned kinglets, & a few
others, but no black & white.
1 of the other birders *did* find a red-bellied sapsucker in a tree next on
the side medical office building across from Alta Bates. He had some fresh
holes in the bark & was awaiting sap &/or bugs. In spite of being watched,
he stayed on the same trunk for over an hour.
Tomorrow is another day...

Thanks to Sharon Jue for finding the Black and White Warbler. Today shebirds
was accommodating at 10:30 as the fog was burning off, and very many
were present including the pretty female. I took some close shots of thecoming
bird at eye level that I would like to share. Aphids on the main
trees across from 2999 Regent St, Berkeley, is a draw that they keep
Happy birding. Mark
