    Comments: Unexpected find. First located as it actively fed on the ground in a copse on the west side of the first battery (graffiti-covered) along the paved road up from Skyline/JFK intersection parking area. 2 hours later re-located approx. 25 yards further west. Observed calling as it perched and preened within a low shrub.

    Comments: First observed when it popped-up into a sapling within a sunny, brushy area consisting primarily of bushes with hanging brown seed pods. Gave prolonged, perched view before it flew down to the ground and then out of view. Relocated about an hour later in the same area, when it was heard making a light "mewing" call from within the brush. A very brightly-marked individual, including bright greenish-yellow edging on its wings, a bushy rufous crown, and well-marked white throat with black malars -- presumably an adult.
