Thursday I saw a female Bullock's Oriole, found by Mary Gosselin, at Lake Los Carneros. Yesterday, a check of Canada San Onofre revealed at least 14 Common Loons and 3 Horned Grebes, along with a couple of Parasitic Jaegers.
This morning I decided to check out Ellwood for birds. I had a 1W male Hooded Oriole near the end of Palo Alto. There was a singing and calling Bullock's in the same area. A check of Goleta Beach and Atascadero Creek turned up continuing Brant, Horned Grebe, and 2 YC Night-Herons. Mew Gulls have now arrived in numbers.
