This morning I had time for a quick outing so I headed over to Elings Park. It was cool and overcast for a change - a welcome relief from our recent hot days.
Elings Park was pretty quiet, bird-wise. Last year we had good success with some warblers here when the fennel was blooming. There is not so much of a bloom this year and the warblers seem to be going elsewhere.
After Elings Park I headed over to La Mesa Park, where there were actually a bunch of warblers. They were mostly waaay up in the Eucalyptus trees. Try as I might I could not find anything remotely unusual up in those trees.
I hear there are still interesting warblers being seen out in Goleta. Looks like Goleta is in my future - again.
Some photos from this morning:
Unusual to see 2 of these together
After today the year's total still stands at 250.
Today I rode a total of 4.6 miles
