Thick-billed Kingbird, Kittiwake, etc

Alex Bairstow

   Started this morning down in the Tijuana Slough NWR and caught up with one of the continuing Nelson's Sparrows, along with several 'Large-billed' Savannah Sparrow. From there I went down to Seacoast Dr where the only bird of note was the leucistic Ridgeway's Rail. Then went down to Imperial Beach Pier and found the Black-legged Kittiwake resting at the end of the pier by the Pelagic Cormorant spot. Two Brown Boobies were also present. Made a stop a the Poggi Creek greenbelt and found the Thick-billed Kingbird just west of the swimming pool.

Also made at brief stop around 4pm at Tierrasanta to look for the Painted Redstart but was unable to locate it.
