Blackburnian Warbler Blackburnian Warbler
Today I photographed a rare Blackburnian Warbler at San Jacinto Wildlife area near the blue Porta_potty on the northwest end of the auto tour in some willows (just 100 feet west of porta potty. Phil Unitt made the ID.
We just got back last week from a trip to Glacier National Park in Montana with spectacular clouds and landscape views and some wildlife, but not very many birds. The Great Grey Owl and Northern Hawk Owl were hoped for but with no luck. The late winter and Spring are better for those but it was a great trip overall with temps ranging from 32 at night to about 68 for the highest. It snowed one day at the higher elevations above 7500 feet. Will post some more photos later.

A Bald Eagle flew over my head as the sun was rising and a Kingfisher was fishing in the stream but the landscape this time was the highest priority and I couldn’t change lenses.
