Blackburnian Warbler- Hollywood 12/24

I photographed a Blackburnian Warbler today in Hollywood. I was walking from my brother's house to my parent's new place in Hollywood. It was at intersection of S 20 Avenue and Plunkett Street in a mixed flock.

As usual, the neighborhoods with oaks, Black Olive and figs harbor many a mixed flock of passerines; I ran into several other warbler species, including two Cape Mays.

See the photo of the Blackburnian in the eBird checklist below.

Great winter find. I don't think I've heard of one this late before.

Toe, I checked your favorite site and the last record of a December blackburnian was in 1979 at Corkscrew Swamp: https://ebird.org/map/bkbwar?neg=true&env.minX=-88.019599609375&env.minY=20.728078498111124&env.maxX=-79.340400390625&env.maxY=34.457696167180174&zh=true&gp=true&ev=Z&mr=on&bmo=12&emo=12&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2018
