Western Migrant Day(s)
- 16 Sept 2102 -- Today, I ventured up the Hwy 1 to a few spots. There may have been an
Eastern vagrant lurking about, but it did not announce its presence.
At Chadbourne Gulch: Many migrants including CASSIN'S VIREO, MacGILLIVRAY'S
WARBLER, WARBLING VIREO, WILLOW FLYCATCHER, LINCOLN'S SPARROW,
YELLOW & TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS and COM YELLOWTHROAT. There was
not a Wilson's at all in this location.
Other spots, such as Wages Ck and Juan Ck yielded less than listed above. So, I decided
to go to Usal. It was very slow (cold and foggy). The only different species I could find
were WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE and the only WILSON'S WARBLER for the day.
The imm PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVER continues at Virgin Creek beach, according to
Dorothy Tobkin (from 9/11 JRW).
I (KHv) found an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER in the early morning (7:15-am) at Virgin
Creek beach on 9/12. It was also seen by Richard Hubacek and remained to at least 9/14.
Sorry for the late report.
