Spent part of Sunday morning walking a number of streets and alleyways in Coronado. Highlights included:
BROWN BOOBY: at least 3 birds feeding in ocean off Ocean Blvd, are undoubtedly some of the same birds one can see off Imperial Beach
TROPICAL KINGBIRD: 2 together moving around various directions within a block of the intersection of Coronado and Acacia; a single bird has been found in this general area during a couple previous winters (goes back and forth between Navy golf course and the residential area).
TENNESSEE WARBLER: could well be the same bird from last winter, in blooming meloleucas along Pine Ave. near Tenth.
CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER: in nicely vegetated side yard (with eugenias, ficus, and peppers) behind red wooden gate along alleyway just east of Glorietta & Ynez.
