The 2nd one was seen at Quail Trail hill side right next to the big eucalyptus tree. The 3rd one was seen flycatching and perching on trees surrounding the big pine tree at Hoot Hollow (pic
lack-throated Gray Warbler (2)- 1 male seen on 13th around noon in California Buckeye tree beside the picnic area at Hoot Hollow. Today (14th) saw another male at the Bay Oak Tree right next to the side door (with nest boxes) of the Nectar Garden around 10:30AM. It then flew and perched on the tree right beside the Visitor Center gate and even went down to the funtain to drink. Based on the images that I took (pics the last one was taken on 13th at Hoot Hollow) it seems to me these are 2 different birds.
