Bay-breasted Warbler - Doyle Community Park

Jay Desgrosellier
 

At 6:15 pm (9/20) there is a Bay-breasted Warbler in the pines along the southern border of the park near the backstop of the SE ballfield (about where the vireo was last week). It seems to prefer the western most pine and the tree just to the west. Also uses the small trees on the other side of the fence. 

Expected Blackpolll, but no streaking on back, no dark line through eye, mostly whitish underparts with some bay color on flanks and prominent white wingbars on black wings. No eye arcs to suggest pine warbler. High, thin, tseet call note.

Good Birding!

Blackpoll Warbler in my Yard

I looked out the sliding glass door and thought "hey, that's a weird Goldfinch." Dug the camera out of the ol' pelagic backpack and barely managed to get a couple shots as it was finishing up its bath, didn't even take the time to fix my settings :(
Anyway, I scoured the Pepper Trees out front and managed to find it again for a second but it took off.  I'll keep looking for it and if it ends up sticking around the next couple days I'll let everyone know, there are a lot of pepper trees in my area!

Pacific Golden Plover and Little Stint.

Mike Wittmer
 

Scoped salt works sandbar off of the Bayshore Bike path at the viewing platform.  Both the Pacific Golden Plover and Little Stint were present about an hour ago.  Scope is definitely recommended but heat shimmer is getting worse

Flycatcher ID

Catherine Zinsky
 

The general consensus is that the flycatcher I requested help identifying is an Ash-throated Flycatcher.
Thank you all for your input and encouragement!   

Wishing you all good birding,

I heard from Jim Pawlicki that he found a RED-THROATED PIPIT at Robb Athletic Field in Ocean Beach.

The GPS coordinates of the pipit: 32.7534962, -117.2423219

Apparently with Horned Larks when first seen, the only pipit, but the Horned Larks took off and then returned, but currently no sign of the pipit back with them.

Jim Pawlicki also reports a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW at Robb Athletic Field, Ocean Beach.  Same general location field as the Red-throated Pipit.

The sparrow was seen near the South baseball backstop area near the eucalyptus.

Two Western Screen Owls calling each other 10:30 p.m. in the small canyon between Purer Road and Vista de la Cresta in Escondido. Don't know if they are considered rare, but the last time I heard them here was in 2013.

Also a Pt Loma Blackburnian Warbler

This morning I took a few shots of a dull warbler then lost track of it and kind of forgot about it when I found the Prairie Warbler while trying to relocate it. Looking at the photos now it was actually a BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER. This was just across the street from the Prairie on DuPont.

Probable Virginia’s Warbler at Allen Road Nature Trail 9/18

Nathan French
 

Had when I’m pretty sure was a Virginia’s Warbler with a bold white eye ring, gray above, and bright yellow under tails. Seen briefly in trees at the bottom of the road around 10:30am, just before the start of trail.  (32.7536310, -117.1833720) Unable to relocate after 30 mins of looking. Keep in mind this is residential so please respect the neighbors and do not park on Allen Road when visiting. Plenty of parking is available on Fort Stockton Dr.
