The Townsend’s warbler has been refound Wednesday morning at 9:30 at the usual location. Corner of Second St and Centre St. We have watched and photographed it as it moved to Third St and it is back at now at 10:10 at the original spot.

Mike Bouman saw it fly in (from the west) and land high in a bare tree near the corner of Second and Centre Streets at 8:45.  Four of us searched diligently for the next 2 hours to no avail.  Finally, at about 10:45, it was refound along Third Street halfway between Bates and Centre, much to the delight of the 7 of us assembled.  It fed high in the cedars for about 8 minutes and then flew back to the original intersection where it was seen briefly and then we lost it.  It is moving around a lot the past 3 days, probably due to the warmer weather and availability of food.  The Ross's goose seen yesterday was out on the lake again today with about 1000 Canada geese, a bit north of Fifth St.
