      Emilie Strauss found a Phylloscopus Warbler today behind Costco on Central
      Avenue in Richmond / El Cerrito. Photographs of the bird are posted on
      http://www.flickr.com/photos/boblewis/sets/72157607897690695/

      To get to the site, go down Central Avenue towards Costco and park in the
      SW
      corner of the Costco lot. Walk south to a Bay Trail feeder trail with a
      wood bar across it. Jump the bar and turn west on the trail, walk to just
      before where the trail turns north. There is a small field of fennel on
      your right, between the trail and the black wire fence of the water
      treatment plant. The bird was low in the fennel, and near the two small
      cypresses in the field.

      After Emilie notified me, I was able to find the bird about 4 PM. Dave
      Quady appeared about 4:30 and we again refound the bird. I left about 5,
      when John Luther arrived.

      Looking at the images in the camera and as posted, and after e-mailing them
      to Emilie, we all concluded the bird is a Dusky Warbler. A few more less
      satisfying images are also available.
