Hi Tweeterdom,

It’s been a slow year in my yard for migrants compared to last year’s flurry of vireos and flycatchers but this past week American goldfinch and dark-eyed juncos arrived in numbers. This morning, several golden crowned sparrows, an orange-crowned warbler, a black-headed grosbeak and an empid foraged in the yard. Just noticed two sparrows, one a song and the other tbd. The empid was likely a pacific-slope, very green with two Buffy wing bars and characteristic eye ring. It did not linger.

Last year, birds arrived in mid-August. This year A month or so later.

Of course now the neighbors have awoken and the generators and hammering started...no more birds but the usual...city life.

Happy birding.
