Cape May Warbler continues at Lake Murray

Saw the Cape May Warbler around 10:30 am today in what I was told was
the original large euc where it was originally found. (Thank you Ryan
Andrews.) Had watched for it for a half hour or more in the smaller,
smooth barked, blooming euc across from the exit to the Kiowa entrance
upper parking lots, where it has frequently been spotted recently. The
larger tree is not blooming, and is on the other side of the trail,
closer to the lake, and a little further from the parking areas. It
stayed in the larger euc for at least 35 minutes, always on the right
side of the tree (when facing the lake). It then moved to the area where
the smaller tree is, then into the smaller tree, but did not remain
there very long. Lost it after that. These coordinates were provided in
the Loefke's list a few days ago for the smaller tree spot:

32.784317,-117.038791

Tried looking for the Rusty Blackbird early in the afternoon in the
larger parking area by the dock where the boat rental and concession
stand are. There were quite a few Great-tailed Grackles, along with a
smaller number of Brewer's Blackbirds and Brown-headed Cowbirds, but no
Rusty Blackbird.
