When I arrived, observers included Tim & Fritz Steurer and Adrian Hinkle. They had seen the Black-capped Chickadee and were just seeing a Swainson's Thrush, which I saw. We then saw the Costa's on the south side of the street. A half-hour later, Roger Adamson showed up. The Costa's showed up right after that in front of all of us. After the Steurers left, Adrian refound the Black-capped Chickadee, and I and Roger both saw it. This site is right by the intersection of E. Cedar St and N. Lincoln St. and at the entrance to Otis Park.

Observations

  1. Number observed: 3
  2. Number observed: 1

    Details: Previously reported. 1st on 10 Nov. It first showed up at 932 & 934 Cedar St, then it went across the street to the Mexican Sage. It was a small green and white hummer with a down curved bill. When the larger Anna's saw it, they chased it off. It was a subadult male with a purplish throat, and the gorget was not fully developed down the sides. A most peculiar behavior occurred. While we were standing there, it flew down and landed in the middle of the street about 6 feet away and just sat there. Later, I saw it land 3X more on the sidewalk and just sit. The only thing I could think of was that it was trying to get warm after a very cold night.

    Details: I couldn't get any color because of the light and its speed. Kestrel or Merlin sized, it was probably the same Merlin that was seen earlier.
