As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Rare Birds Spotted In San Diego

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

A errant flock of Pinyon Jays has been spotted in San Diego's Laguna Mountains and local birders grabbed their binoculars to catch a glimpse.
According to the San Diego County Bird Atlas by Philip Unitt, Pinyon Jays are normally found farther north in the San Jacinto mountains and they are rarely seen in San Diego.
Birders posting on Cornell Lab of Ornithology's eBird report seeing a sizable flock of up to 250 Jays off Sunrise Highway. Sightings of the birds were first reported in the area on October 3.
