Local stuff - 2/28
This morning I had a WHITE-THROATED SPARROW in a heavily-vegetated
yard adjacent to Irvine Terrace Park in Newport Beach. The park is
immediately adjacent to Pacific Coast Highway, across from the
entrance to Fashion Island. I pished the bird out of the yard with the
big pine trees. Also here was a "SLATE-COLORED" JUNCO.
Upper Newport Bay was relatively quiet today. The only decent bird I
could find was a single male GREATER SCAUP at the northern end of the
bay, near Jamboree Rd.
I had a PEREGRINE FALCON (probably a female) at San Joaquin Wildlife
Sanctuary in Irvine this afternoon, on one of the islands in Pond Two.
This morning there was an adult-cycle MEW GULL in the same pond. I
also found the continuing WILSON'S WARBLER near the Audubon House
