The next morning I was excited to go out looking for a Blue-headed Vireo staked out in a Point Loma neighborhood. After an hour of waiting and watching, it never showed. But I did see a couple Western Scrub-Jays taking a few berries for breakfast.
One of my favorite gulls was waiting for me at Coronado Beach.
And of course these guys:

We drove down Silver Strand Blvd. to Imperial Beach to check out the birding from the pier. Just off the pier were some grebes and three species of loons.
