Eurasian Wigeon (Mareca penelope) (1)
- Reported Mar 26, 2021 19:11 by Aaron Kreisberg
- Dune Pond at COPR, Santa Barbara, California
- Map:<q...>,-119.881839&<ll...>,-119.881839
- Checklist:
- Comments: "Seen in pond with American Wigeons. Rufous side of head, white siding at edge of rump and grey sides. Didn't get a great look at streak in middle of head due to light and angle. Rufous side to head, grey side, white rump area."

Curlew Sandpiper (Calidris ferruginea) (1)
- Reported Mar 26, 2021 19:19 by Aaron Kreisberg
- Coal Oil Point--Devereux Beach and Sands Beach, Santa Barbara, California
- Map:<q...>,-119.8783064&<ll...>,-119.8783064
- Checklist:
- Comments: "This bird was seen with a Dunlin at the Southwestern edge of the snowy plover exclosure at the slough mouth. Looked about the same size but showed a more prominent white eyebrow, a curved bill also, streaking on the breast, and black spots on the bottom of the belly. Black spots looked like they could've been tar spots so this caused me to have some thoughts this bird could've been a Dunlin. Not useful cellphone photos taken by E. Kreisberg"
