Carp Creek is still only moderately birdy, but produced a couple of Northern
Waterthrushes this morning, and one Yellow-breasted Chat. The Chat was
downcreek from 6th St., near the wall that borders the sewage plant. One
waterthrush was at the bend just downstream from the 8th St. footbridge,
while the other was between 8th St. and Carpinteria Ave., in the section of
creek lined with Cottonwoods on either side.
Other migrants were just the usual suspects: Yellow and Wilson's Warbler,
Western Tanager, Warbling Vireo, Western Wood-Pewee, and Willow Flycatcher.
