    DATE: Dec 31, 1969 @ 4:00pm, TODAY
    All,
    
    The previously reported OVENBIRDis still present as of 11:20 January 31st at Rancho Santa Fe Botanic Gardens in Claremont. It is just north of the Indian Hill Mesa in a grove of oak trees.
    
    If you continue down the hill from the Indian Hill Mesa, you will come to a Y intersection with a large sign saying “Is a plant Community.....”. Veer left for 25 yards or so and you will come to another interaction. Take the first trail to the north or right and the Bird was in the oak leaf litter to the east about 5 meters from the intersection. I placed 4 stones near this trail. It was quite cooperative
    
    Happy New Year.

  23. Madrona Marsh Saturday 9/17 (Magnolias?) LINK
    DATE: Sep 17, 2017 @ 1:13am, 4 month(s) ago
    I birded Madrona Marsh on Saturday (prior to the Louisiana Waterthrush show seen later in Fullerton)with a number of others. No ovenbird. But in the Black and White Warbler area there were twointeresting birds. One was an apparent Magnolias Warbler. I obtained a tail shot. Not definitivebut suggestive. There was also a vireo with significant head contrast. Presumably a Cassins.Photos of these and the waterthrush are on my Flickr page.

    - Comments: "After Mark saw and alerted me to this bird and we searched the general area as Mark described (middle meadow area) but we did not find it. Later I photographed the Black-and-White Warbler. I saw a bird with an olive-green back, white eyering,
    and a hint of a rufous stripe on its crown. It was smaller than a Hermit Thrush or a Swainson's Thrush. I never saw a front view. It was perched low and quickly flew into some thick willows and disappeared. It was in the general area with the Black-and White
    Warbler but a little to the west. Sorry no pictures."

    - Comments: "I am assuming this is actually the same bird seen in late July. Thought I might have gotten a glimpse of it Thursday, so very happy to get such a good look today. Brown body and head, a little bigger overall than an Orange-crowned Warbler or
    Yellowthroat, with a complete white eye ring around a large dark eye. Distinct dark striping on a white breast and flank. A bit of an orange crown bordered by dark stripes. Vocalized loudly enough for even me to hear by repeating a distinct chip, sounding
    something like a "tsk" to me. It moved among the branches of willows (never on the floor) just south of the east end of the middle road (sorry, not able to give coordinates). These would be the willows immediately west of the Kelt Area, if you have access
    to a map of the preserve. There is actually a very narrow secondary path that runs through those very willows. I observed the bird on both sides of that path before it moved further south and out of sight. Sorry, but I once again failed to get a photo."
