Yesterday Tom Turner found a White-eyed Vireo along Refugio Rd in Santa Barbara County. Besides being a very good bird, this also seems to set a new early record for this species in California. As far as I can tell, the CBRC database has as the previous earliest WEVI record May 6, 2001 at Pescadero Creek, San Mateo County (#2001-127). After allowing some photos and a sound recording the bird moved on. See Tom's checklist for the details: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45151126 On the topic of review species in Santa Barbara County: the Fulvous Whistling-Duck has moved from Lake Los Carneros Park to Goleta Sanitary District Plant. This plant can be birded during business hours but not before checking in as a birder at the front desk. Wim van Dam Solvang, CA
