This beautiful morning there was a Western Kingbird at the ag fields about
50 yards north of the greenhouses north of the taco truck at F and San
Juan. It was usually on the west side of fields near the tan house (long
view from the bike path on the east side). Distant pics at

The last couple days have also produced my first of season Warbling Vireo,
Wilson's Warblers (several), and MacGillivray's Warbler. Others I associate
with winter have also appeared: a confiding White-throated Sparrow in my
backyard (apparently gone today) and a pair of Evening Grosbeaks that
headed toward uptown this morning. Type 3 Red Crossbills are around town
(mostly Fort Warden) in low numbers. Some pics from the other day are here
(all taken out the windows of my house):

Offshore, large numbers of Rhinoceros Auklets (hundreds) and Bonaparte's
Gulls (dozens) are among the distant feeding frenzies mid-channel.

good birding,
