      This morning and afternoon, a YELLOW-GREEN VIREO was at Maria Ygnacio Creek
      in Goleta, Santa Barbara County. Take Patterson Ave. south from U.S. 101
      (toward the ocean). Just before the road bends to the east, you cross a bike
      path. Park in the wide turnout between the bike path and the Atascadero
      Creek bridge. Follow the bike path east to a wooden bridge. This is Maria
      Ygnacio Creek. The bird was first seen at 10am, about 30 yds upstream
      (north). Although it was first seen with a large mixed flock of warblers,
      vireos, and Bushtits, the flock continued upstream and left the vireo
      behind. It was subsequently seen off and on over the next three hours,
      within 30 yds or so upstream of the initial sighting. Boots are necessary to
      look for this bird.

        Galileo Hills and California City did not produce many unexpected birds
        today.

        An OVENBIRD was refound at California City Park at the base of the
        eucalyptus trees on the other side of the foot bridge from the old hotel,
        and sometimes around the edge of the piney knoll closest to the golf
        clubhouse.

        A GRAY CATBIRD was also still at California City, in the pond-side trees
        closest to the clubhouse parking lot.

        Not much activity at Galileo. We did have a juv. YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER
        (and two adult Red-naped) by the petting zoo. The Yellow-bellied flew
        around in the trees over the Hurundo (cane) by the road. There were also a
        Townsend's Solitaire and a Red-breasted Nuthatch around the swings; and a
        Lazuli Bunting up with the sparrows and juncos. Galileo is private
        property. Please be on your best behavior if you decide to visit, and
        consider dining with them in exchange for the privilege. Show discretion
        publicizing very rare birds found here (which I do not consider YBSA to be).

          This should have gone out days ago to Calbirds (my apologies), but Sue Smith
          has apparently found California's first summering Yellow-Green Vireo at San
          Elijo Lagoon in Solana Beach, San Diego County. The bird was first thought
          to be a Red-eyed Vireo and stumped many with it's ID. After some mages were
          reviewed, it has been deemed to be a very dull Yellow-Green.



          The bird has been seen or heard daily from the trailheads at the end of
          northern end Rios Dr. in Solana Beach. If you get to the trail head, the
          bird can be near a very large Cottonwood tree about 50 yards down the hill
          to the right, or it has also been seen on a regular basis in the Willows
          right below the end of the Street and to the north of the trailhead.
