Black and White Warbler at Greenbury Point.

One thing I’m learning is that I  didn’t have enough faith in my local spots. I’m finding decent birds in good enough numbers without getting more than 5 miles from home. I don’t have a good marsh bird spot around here, but it’s not that far to CBEC or Terrapin.

I suspect the CA fires are still having an effect on our skies, as the morning light is often gray and dreary. I did catch a decent sunrise or two, though.

I’ve spotted several warblers, a couple of Tanagers and vireos and the usual suspects.
