Subject: [sbcobirding] Carpinteria Creek and AC Bird Refuge
I walked the bottom of Carp Creek this morning from just below Carp Avenue
to the estuary. I had 4 species of Empidonax; I'm still working out the ID
for one of them. Try it yourself using my photos at
Also there were 2, and probably 3, races of Orange-crowned Warbler present
At the Andree Clark Bird Refuge were 4 Spotted Sandpipers, 3 Pectoral
Sandpipers, 2 Dunlin, 27 Least Sandpipers, and 3 Western Sands. One of the
Pectorals was the same long-billed, dark-billed bird that caused problems
last week.
