      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
      Message 2 of 3 , Jul 28, 2009
        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.
