Yesterday (Tuesday Jan 29) I visited some Chula Vista spots. The drake Eurasian Wigeon continues in the Sweetwater River at the north end of 2nd Ave. The Thick-billed Kingbird continued at the Poggi Creek greenbelt, and was in close proximity to a Scissortailed Flycatcher. Comments I received on Facebook seem to indicate this may be a new place for this species this year, although last year the two birds were often seen together. I noticed that Brennan also saw the STFC, and remarked that it was a surprise.
Today Sue Smith led a few of us up into the mountains where we saw the continuing Lewis’s Woodpecker at the north end of Black Canyon Rd. This bird was not inclined to sit around and would have been very easy to miss if Sue had not known where to see it.
