So I moved up north to the Convention Center. It took me just a few minutes to find this young male Scarlet Tanager.
I tried to draw it in with some judicious pishing but no luck. However a curious duo of an American Redstart and a Yellow Warbler perched right up in my face.
A Swainson's Thrush skulked around the water feature.
This young White Ibis was probing the grass for goodies behind the Convention Center.
A fall plumaged Indigo Bunting and a Blue Grosbeak were also back there.
This basic plumaged hummer has a pretty long bill, grayish crown and a long tail so I guess that makes it a Black-chinned Hummingbird.
A cooperative Ruby-crowned Kinglet at the water feature.
And an uncooperative Summer Tanager.
Well, nothing spectacular but it's always worth the effort to check out SPI.
