Some uncommon (away from the coast) birds continuing at Silver Lake today, include a 1st winter MEW GULL and a drake GREATER SCAUP.
The MEW GULL is solo, avoiding the main gull flock and can be found swimming alone, picking food off the surface, close to the banks along the western shore of the main reservoir. The GREATER SCAUP also continues at Ivanhoe Reservoir, which is the small northern reservoir that has a footpath that runs along the west side. It shows at close range and so provides good photo opportunities and a great chance to compare the subtle structural differences from the many Lesser Scaup here. There are also 3 REDHEAD continuing here including a fine drake.
And lastly, the GRAY FLYCATCHER continued through the weekend on the east side at the Silver Lake Meadow. A very tame bird indeed that is easy to see if you wait by the benches around a small patch of trees/bushes on the east side of the meadow. The bird will come within a few feet of you, often feeding on the ground around your feet. Best, Andy BirchLos Feliz
