Hoover High School, City Heights-Returning Eastern Phoebe-Possible Tropical Kingbird


Knut Tjelmeland
 

Last year's Eastern Phoebe has returned to 4400 block of Highland Ave next to Hoover High. Present yesterday Friday and also today Nov. 27 along metal fence overlooking school athletic field. Last year the bird remained from Nov. 24 at least through April 1.
Also on Friday around noon a yellow-breasted kingbird on the power lines at intersection of Highland and Monroe (also 4400 block of Highland). Confident that it was not a Cassin's Kingbird, but unsure whether Western or Tropical (decent frontal views only). Same power lines popular with the Phoebe as well.
