Grace's Warblers and Red-breasted Nuthatches in Del Mar & Encinitas
The GRACE'S WARBLER reported by Dan King last week continues on San Dieguito Dr. in Del Mar (the road that parallels Crest Canyon). We tracked it for over an hour in the pine trees at 1445 San Dieguito Rd (the mailbox says 1445 Oribia Rd). Presumably the same bird that was here February – early March 2018. It was almost always in the same pine trees as the two RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, something I also noticed in February 2018. The warbler hardly chipped at all but the nuthatches kept up a sporadic mumbling sort of chatter.
Sue and Gretchen report that the Crest Dr. GRACE'S WARBER up in Encinitas also continues today and also was found hanging out with a pair of RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES.
