San Diego Co Crested Caracara
- Ten Birders saw the the Crested Caracara fly west from its usual roost at
the Dairy Mart Pond at 06:20am this morning. For directions, see Gjon
Hazard¹s helpful Calbirds post from yesterday.
I then drove the few miles north on Hwy 5, went west on Palm Ave to left
turn to Carolina to Donax to look for the Mississippi Kite with no success.
However, in the neighborhood SW of the Mar Vista school on Ellwood between
2nd and 3rd St on the north side I saw 5 Amazonia parrots. Four looked to be
immature Yellow-headed Parrots and one looked like a Red-lored Parrot.
