- Hello Bird People,
After reading some of your posts I may be out of my league here
as I'm just an amateur bird watcher. However, in June of this year I
happened to see 15 to 20 smalls birds in a large oak tree which grows
by Cow Creek about 7 miles NE of Redding. I identified these birds
as audubon warblers. I have never seen them here before. Are they
rare or have I just not noticed them? They stayed for two days in
the same location and then were gone. Also for the last two days I
have had Black-headed grosbeaks at my backyard feeder located about a
half a block from the River Trail. Any information on warblers would
be appreciated. Toni

Hardly! Down here in San Diego in the winter you practically step on 'em,
they're so plentiful! Their incessant "chip"ing is a very familiar sound in
the suburbs (and everywhere else, it seems)! If you're new to birding, I
would say you just probably haven't noticed them before.
Welcome to the "club", and good birding!
