A Saturday morning seawatch at La Jolla produced a rare and early alternate-plumaged, southbound Common Murre, a (continuing?) dark-morph Northern Fulmar, and about 45 Black-vented Shearwaters. Also continuing Surf Scoters (6) and Black Oystercatchers (3).

Yesterday, the 10th, the presumed-escape young male Painted Bunting continued in the TRV community gardens, a young Bonaparte's Gull continued in the Salt Works area, and what may end up being my final spring-migrant lanbdbird of the season was in the form a Western Wood-Pewee nearby.
