Grace's Warbler : Villa La Jolla Park, 1FEB 2019

Tito Gonzalez
 

I observed a GRACE’S WARBLER this afternoon, 1FEB2019, at Villa La Jolla Park around 4pm. I first located it in the pine tree next to the road in the northwest part of park. It then moved to eucalyptus directly east joining a group  of YRWAs. I eventually lost track of it as it continued to move east. Gary N. reported a GRACE’s WARBLER in the park on 14OCT 2018, it might be the same individual but if so it has gone undetected for the last 3.5 months. There is a lot of good territory around the park and it is possible that it only occasionally visits the park. Nonetheless, there are at least two wintering GRACE’S WARBLERS currently in the county. Photos are in ebird report:
