In two visits to the Schotia trees at Kenneth Hahn Park yesterday, Eric and I saw: Hooded and Bullock's Orioles, W Tanagers, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Swainson's Thrushes, Nuttall's Woodpecker, Warbling Vireo, and
Wilson's, Townsend's, Yellow, Orange-crowned and Hooded Warblers, Oh, and a pair of Lazuli Buntings. The best show came around 7:15pm when several birds took baths- sometimes two species at a time! Mourning doves, Spotted and California Towhees, Lesser Goldfinches and a California Jay joined in the bathing entertainment. Also had Cedar Waxwings and Western Kingbirds passing by. And no warbler neck!

KHP is free on weekdays, the gardens with the trees are at the end of the road at the top of the hill. Park in the lot and walk south (right as you are coming up the hill). Pass the Hummingbird Garden (also busy), and the first Schotia is just past the large Brazilian pepper tree. There is another, smaller one a little farther south under the very tall Ash tree.
