Well, that was good. Could I get lucky and find the White-throated Sparrow at Quinta Mazatlan? I raced over and got the report that it had been seen in several different spots over the past few weeks. I searched a bit and thought maybe it would do like the towhees a few years ago and hang out by the feeding station by the amphitheater. I didn't have to wait very long. Soon there it was scratching in the leaf litter in the shade just like I expected.
Well I was now two for two. Why not got back to Frontera now that the day is already a success? After arriving I head the Blue Bunting had been seen again. I spent a couple of hours looking unsuccessfully but was happy to finally get the Black-headed Grosbeak for the year.
White waiting at one of the feeding stations and chatting with visiting birders, the Tropical Parula popped in for a viewing.
When I found this young Altimira Oriole nine days ago it was in the company of the Crimson-colored Grosbeak. Today it was alone. Someone saw the grosbeak this afternoon but I was in the wrong spot.
The morning started with this American Robin in our back yard. I think it's only the second time we've had one.
