Thanks, Miriam, for sharing your report on the Tricolored Blackbirds. As
you (and everyone else on the lists) may recall from past postings, the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, among others, is sponsoring surveys for
TRBL nesting colonies. Although I am not coordinating this effort (see
> for project details), I am
participating in the survey and my area includes the Warner Ranch-Santa
Ysabel region, so your info is well received. I would be happy to hear
about any other recent or past colonies in that greater north-central San
Diego county area that you or anyone else on the list may know about.
Thanks to all who provide info.
