Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] White-eyed Vireo
- The Whte-eyed Vireo was still there at 4 PM. We could not refind the
Northern Parula but did see a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the wet spot.

I was able to hear the White-eyed Vireo this afternoon at Talbert Regional Park with the help of Jack Lindahl, who was just leaving and confirmed the location, and Tom Wurster, who was just leaving, but who got me on the call of the Vireo in between all the Chat sounds. I never saw it, and all of the birds went suddenly quiet at 2:00 p.m. (I presume a hawk had come by) and remained that way, so I left about 2:20.
- The White-eyed Vireo was seen and heard by Lena Hayashi and Steve and Becky Turley around 1:30PM at Talbert Regional Park South off the main trail heading east from the BMX course. The bird had periods of singing and silence as it moved from willow to willow and mulefat. When it was heard, finding it was difficult in the thick brush but it did pop up occasionally for quick looks.Lena HayashiHuntington Beach
