dimitrig Posted March 1, 2020 Share Posted March 1, 2020 (edited) This afternoon here in Southern California I saw a small vireo- or kinglet- type bird picking through my roses eating aphids by clinging to the stems and working its way up and down each. It could be a flycatcher but the feeding style (gleaning) doesn't seem like flycatcher behavior. It was a dull gray with a white eye ring and a black bill and feet. Its underside was white or buff streaked with gray. No other (bright) colors were visible. What stood out for me what was it had two dark black marks or spots (though not perfectly round) on its breast: one of the right side and one on the left side. I have been looking at pictures of all the common local birds and I cannot find ANY that have two black spots on the chest. Any ideas?
