The third BLACK & WHITE Warbler I've seen this fall, plus a
PALM Warbler were near the coast at Wages Creek this AM
between 10 and 10:30. They were with a good-sized flock of
chickadees. Yellow, Wilson's, Warbling Vireo among the
flock. Wages Creek is on Hwy 1 just north of Westport.
Be careful birding here, as there is not much room on the
roadsides, except for a large turnout a few yards north of
This Black & White was an adult, with heavy streaking and
obvious spots on the undertail coverts. The Palm had very,
bright yellow undertail coverts, bobbed it tail continuously,
and even showed a hint of chestnut color on the crown at
certain angles. (The other Black & Whites at Ten Mile &
Usal, were female or immature - slightly dingy, while this
bird was immaculate).
A LARK SPARROW was seen by Jim Havlena while I was
out this morning on our driveway. I saw it at lunchtime
with lots of White-crowns.
Good birding! Karen Havlena
