Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Returning Red-breasted Sapsucker ssp. ruber
Hi all,

I visited Harry Griffen Park yesterday and took some photos of a
Red-breasted Sapsucker. Nancy Christensen pointed out that it looked
like the northern subspecies individual that was seen at the same location
this past spring.

Three photos are in the ebird list, showing extensive bright red breast
fading
sharply to yellow, limited white stripe on the face, and limited white
spots on the wings.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S76763364

Location was in the eucs in the northwest corner of the park. Thanks to
Nancy
for pointing this out! I amended the ebird list, so let me know if this ssp
is not correct.

Gray Flycatcher was at the previously reported locations, in the central
grassy
area as well as the scrubby area to the west. Pin-tailed Whydahs were in
the
north central grassy area with many Lesser Goldfinches.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Many Scott's Orioles at Hellhole Canyon's Palm Trees
Maybe not as exciting as a Tundra Swan but I hiked out to Maidenhair Falls in Hellhole Canyon out in Anza Borrego and there was a large gathering of Scott's Orioles foraging and chasing each other around the fruiting palm trees.  I had 12 in view at one point but there honestly may have been more. Climbing up on nearby boulders allowed for an eye-level view of the tops of several palms and great photo opportunities.

If you've never done Hellhole Canyon before it's a pretty easy-going hike, mostly flat the entire way with only a couple spots that require going over small rocks.  The first portion of the hike is your typical un-shaded desert but once you reach the canyon it's cool and shaded the rest of the way, until the sun gets high of course. I got to the palms around 9am and the birds were highly active and there were no other people around yet.  On the hike out, however, I passed a lot of people heading into the canyon, many of which were mask-less. There is also a parking lot at the trailhead but it requires a $10 fee or state park pass.

Just a few minutes ago, Saturday morning, I had a Prairie Warbler in Coronado. The bird was in small Harbor View Park at the very end of E Avenue, which as you might imagine gives one a view of San Diego Bay right across the bay from downtown and Seaport Village. The bird was in all the thick bushes on the left side of the park where it ends overlooking the water right by a fence and a sign that says Caution: Do not enter, hazardous area. Obviously the bird could easily go into people's yards on either side of the park and not be visible. Unlike the bird in Chula Vista back in September, this one has a full tail!

Visiting out of town birder Elias Elias reports an (the?) immature Tundra Swan is currently hauled out at Crown Point at the Kendall Frost reserve, out from the observation platform, at the north end of Mission Bay as of 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

I am walking around residential Coronado with low numbers of birds and have had a Costas hummingbird and two bullocks orioles and a Wilson's warbler. Yesterday, Friday, I had a rare at this season Pacific-slope Flycatcher at the top end of Nestor Park, and the "Yellow" Palm Warbler continues in the TRV community gardens and has now grown back 2/3 of its tail.

In case anyone didn’t see this in the news, earlier this week a 68 year old female hiker walking alone in the morning was stabbed to death in Hosp Grove in Carlsbad. The area is across the street from Buena Vista Lagoon on the east side of the 5. The suspect is still at large. With upcoming CBCs in the area and large groups being discouraged because of Covid, USE CAUTION and DON’T GO ALONE. There are several hotspots and parks within walking distance of the murder scene.

The LBBG and its WEGU buddies were totally unfazed by at least 100 hominids in the same area.

A female Long-tailed Duck was feeding with Surf Scoters off the southern

Airops buildings. Also a first-winter Glaucous-winged Gull on the beach,
which has been present for about a week.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

At noon today (11/26/20) I found a male WILLIAMSON'S SAPSUCKER along the
trail from the 19 mile marker trailhead (Sunrise Highway). It was along
the most direct trail to the "Evening grosbeak" concrete water trough,
about 150 yards before the gate with the metal ramp (cattle discourager).
I heard it tapping halfway up a large pine on the south side of the trail.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Turkey Day miscellanea
On Thanksgiving Day, a visit to North Clairemont Park/Rec Center produced a flock of 4 Bullock's Orioles (3 imm. males, 1 female) and a W. Tanager, nut I missed the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Summer Tanager. Farther north, in UTC, the Painted Redstart was easy to find, and in addition to calling it was actually in full song quite a bit. In a private residential area off Governor Drive there was a dark-lored adult White-crowned Sparrow (very rare in the county). And at the Hickman Field ball fields in northern Clairemont Mesa, an adult male Vermilion Flycatcher continues. At Mission Trails Regional Park, the Vesper Sparrow reported recently by Dan J. continues today, along the edge of the grasslands, left of the kiosk, past Gate 9 (fide B. Carlson).

Last year it was seen mostly in the two very dense trees immediately south of the playground that's next to the rec center building. Today I saw it in one of the small not so leafy trees immediately to the right/east of those trees by the fence. There's also a Red-breasted Sapsucker in the same area that I photographed.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Eurasian Wigeon, Black Scoter

Wednesday late morning, there is a male Eurasian wigeon feeding with several hundred American Wigeon along the shore of Gunpowder point and the Chula Vista nature center. However, the bird is visible with a good scope from the north end of Bayside Park near the end of G Street and near the boat works, in Chula Vista. Scan north from the park to the next embayment. Again, a scope is required. The past few days I've been looking at lots of wigeon around town, including 700 wigepn at J Street, and 150 wigeon up the Sweetwater River, and approximately 1,500 wigeon in the San Diego River flood control channel in the SeaWorld section. And this is finally the first Eurasian I've seen.

Also visible this morning from Bayside Park, looking due west toward the end of Grand Caribe in Coronado Cays, was one male Black Scoter in the usual part of the bay where they winter. One would have been closer, although the light would not have been as good, from Coronado Cays.

Painted Redstart continues in the tipus on the northeast side of the middle school. It’s calling on and off (very distinctive), which is the best way to locate it. It disappeared from about 8:15 to 8:45, so there might be another location where it feeds sometimes.

Also present was a giant flock of waxwings, and a mixed flock of Chipping Sparrows and American Pipits that didnt seem to have anything more interesting mixed in. There was a Western Tanager in the tipus as well.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] White-throated Sparrow
Hi everyone,

Last weekend an out-of-town birder found and photographed a White-throated Sparrow in residential Point Loma, and it reappeared there again this morning around 6:30 A.M.  It was with a small flock of White-crowned Sparrows that were flying across both the east and west sides of Silver Gate Avenue between Warner and Dupont St.   It was on the ground, in the trees and visiting backyards and a backyard feeders. The flock was constantly on the move, the bird favored heavy cover and it was dark and cloudy this morning, so unfortunately photo opportunities were extremely limited. But I did get an i.d. shot!

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] weekend miscellanea
Yesterday, the 21st, the Balboa Park GREATER PEWEE was well to the east of its usual area, calling quite a bit at 8AM next to the Organ Pavilion and Palm Canyon in the main central part of the park. Assume it is the same bird! A young male YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER was in the southwest section of the park (full red throat and complete black frame, but still lots of tan-brown mottling to the head and back). A female HOODED ORIOLE is presumably the same bird back for its second winter to the area near the miniature railroad and Art Studios (just south of the main Zoo entrance). A HERMIT WARBLER was north of Marston House, at the north end of the road (7th), overlooking the canyon. Also 1 Bullock's Oriole and total of 5 Western Tanagers scattered in the northern/western park.

Today, Sunday, the continuing Dairy Mart TROPICAL KINGBIRD was present just after dawn at the tops of the larger dead/leafless trees around the "wooded" pond" on the east side of Dairy Mart Road, across the road from the main pond--the third time I've seen it there early in the morning, so it might be roosting there at night. Also a CATTLE EGRET and the usual Least Bittern at the main pond. The PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVER continues with the Killdeer flock on the east side of the sod farm. A female VERMILION FLYCATCHER is at the sports park in San Ysidro. Western Tanager at Nestor Park, another Western and a Bullock's Oriole at Sunnyslope Park, Black-thr Gray Warbler at Harborside Park, and an adult male SUMMER TANAGER at Kimball Park in National City, mostly in the eastern 2/3 of the park (check especially the several scattered pink-flowered eucalyptus). Also today, Barbara Carlson photo'd a first-cycle Glaucous-winged Gull at Lake Murray.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] The winter onslaught of Summer Tanagers
Dear friends,



To add to this winter’s Summer Tanagers, I heard one, and saw a brief flash of red in a treetop, in Balboa Park yesterday 18 November 2020—on the east side of Park Blvd. between Upas St. and Morley Field Drive (thus between Roosevelt Jr. High School and the Blind Center).



Also a couple times in the past week a Black-throated Gray Warbler in jacaranda trees along Park Blvd. just south of University Ave.—just around the corner from where I saw it last February. It’s amazing how minimal of habitat some wintering birds return to in successive years.



Good birding,



Philip Unitt

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] late Bank Swallow; continuing Little Stint, Golden-Plover, "Yellow" Palm, Green-tailed, Reddish
On Weds the 19th, barely after dawn, roosting swallows coming out of the main Dairy Mart Pond included an exceptionally late Bank Swallow. It and several Barn Swallows and about half the Tree Swallows flew around the pond only 2-3 times and then departed, whereas a smaller subset of Trees did remain in the area for another half hour. This is the latest fall record in the county, although there are several "old" records of wintering Banks, so it is possible it could linger further. Still present today were the Little Stint on its favorite island between 9:00-9:15AM, the Pacific Golden-Plover at the sod farm dirt (with 170 Killdeer), the "Yellow" Palm Warbler at the TRV community gardens (in one its favored plots, a little southwest of the red Marine Corps flag) and which now has grown in about 3mm of tail so one can actually see a few feather-tips wagging, a Green-tailed Towhee also at the community gardens which now also has no tail, and lastly a Reddish Egret on the west side of San Diego Bay at Delta Beach, which is presumably the same bird that was there during summer.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Possible Pacific Wren and other North County Odds and Ends (11/17 & 11/18)
Hi Birders,

On Tuesday (11/17), I stopped at the I-5 Southbound Aliso Creek Rest Area
(Camp Pendleton area) where a Slate-colored Junco continues, also a
Loggerhead Shrike continues on the coastal bluff. Then I stopped at Ponto
State Beach in Carlsbad to look through the gull flock, but there was
nothing uncommon. I did fish the surf there for 1/2 hour and caught and
released a 23" legal Halibut:) After this I stopped by a couple small
livestock corrals and then a few shopping mall parking lots looking through
blackbirds, but nothing out of the ordinary to report.

On Wednesday (11/18), I visited both Upper and Lower Cottonwood Creek Parks
in Encinitas where the only highlights were 2 Lawrence's Goldfinch and 8
American Goldfinch at the upper portion. While Lawrence's is always a treat
near the coast, American Goldfinch are also really uncommon in this area,
so also was a treat. I then went to Stagecoach Park in Carlsbad where a
Red-breasted Nuthatch was foraging in the Tipu tree just east of the tennis
court, and a "possible/probable" PACIFIC WREN was calling down in the
drainage immediately north of the tennis courts. I did not see this bird
and when I got my phone out to record the vocalization the bird went silent
and I was unable to detect it again during my stay.

Lastly, a "Sooty" Fox Sparrow showed up in my yard this evening (a yard
bird for this subspecies). It was entertaining to see this bird foraging
with a Hermit Thrush and Song Sparrow in close proximity with their similar
color schemes.

Good Birding,
Jimmy McMorran
Leucadia, CA

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Red-footed Booby, 2 Scripps's Murrelets, Varied Thrush
On 18 Nov, Dave P., Matt S., and myself went offshore as far out as the 30-Mile Bank. Best bird offshore was a pair of very unseasonal Scripps's Murrelets. This species is typically absent locally between June or July until the very first few birds return around New Years or so. Also a Common Murre and 5 Brown Boobies. Otherwise standard fare for the trip. On both the way out and back in we stopped at the bait barge near the mouth of San Diego Bay to look for the stakeout Red-footed Booby. We managed to miss the bird both going and coming, but we talked to the workers there, and they say it was still present as of yesterday (though obviously somewhat sporadically) and that they are feeding it. At the Zuniga Jetty we saw 1 Black Oystercatcher. Offshore totals for the trip:

Surf Scoter 1
Red Phalarope 2
Pomarine Jaeger 8
Parasitic Jaeger 3
Common Murre 1
SCRIPP'S MURRELET 2 (25 mi W of Mission Bay)
Cassin's Auklet 15
Bonaparte's Gull 3 (low)
Heermann's Gull 3
California Gull 150
Western Gull 250
Pacific Loon 27
Common Loon 1
Northern Fulmar 12
Pink-footed Shearwater 20 (a fairly good count for this late in the month)
Sooty Shearwater 2
Black-vented Shearwater 210
Brown Booby 5
Brown Pelican 35
Brandt's Cormorant 13

In other news, via Lea Squires, a Varied Thrush killed itself against a window in Carlsbad on 10 Nov and is now a specimen at SDNHM.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Myrtle Warbler, Tierrasanta
I just had a "Myrtle" Yellow-rumped Warbler with the Audubon's warblers in
Tierrasanta, at the end of Tierrasanta Blvd. The road ends in a cul-de-sac,
and there is a short trail that extends toward the SD River. The bird was
foraging along the right side of the trail near the benches but flew to the
hillside on the left (and gave some colder "chek" calls when it flew).

However, there is now a report that the bird has moved to the west end of the same line, at the northwestern corner of the parking lot, so the entire line is actually fair game.

It can take a LONG time to find it. There is also a Nashville Warbler frequenting the same line, from time to time, but it is mostly frequented by small numbers of Yellow-rumpeds, Orange-crowneds, and R-c Kinglets, with also one Townsend's.

This morning while on a business call (yes I work occasionally) I noticed an interesting warbler foraging on the lawn below our balcony. Looked similar to an Orange-crowned Warbler but had dark wings with white wing bars, streaky greenish back, lighter underneath with some streaks, and a dark tail. Seen (and loudly photographed while on phone with client) from just before 9am-9:15 or so. As of 10:15am I have not seen the bird again. eBird is down and can’t post pics to listserv but will share photos with anyone interested.

Although the distance may be greater the bird is also viewable (depending on location at the time) from the west end of Arenal Street which is the first left on El Camino Real after La Costa.

It was asleep on grassy bank when arrived at El Camino viewing spot. Walked around to La Costa and it had come down. Now swimming with pelicans. A bank obscures it now, so back to El Camino where view a bit better but light bad.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Grasshopper Sparrow, 11/15, Dictionary Hill
I kicked up a Grasshopper Sparrow about a quarter mile east of the two
eucalyptus trees that are near the peak at Dictionary Hill OSP this
morning. GRSP was not found wintering in this square during the Atlas
but was confirmed breeding. GRSP was found wintering in other squares
where it breeds so maybe this is not so surprising, and there is always
the chance this was a late migrant. This square (S12) includes
Sweetwater Reservoir and Dictionary Hill so I'm not sure if breeding
confirmation for this square came from around the lake or the hill, but
I suspect the former.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Sweetwater Bald Eagle and geese, another Baltimore
On Sunday, Sweetwater Reservoir hosted an adult Bald Eagle, very rare near the coast (but Sweetwater has had multiple records over recent years), at the upper end of the lake, where also a flock of 6 Cackling Geese and a female Hooded Merganser. Closer to the center of the lake were 2 Snow Geese with the wintering flock of Canadas (50+), as well as a flock of 10 Canvasbacks (Sweetwater also can be good for this local species). Getting late or wintering at this "inland" site was 1 American Avocet and a good total of 200 Western Sandpipers. Several Bonaparte's Gulls, 1 Brown Pelican.

Yesterday, the 14th, there was a female Baltimore Oriole on private property in Solana Beach. Almost certainly a returning bird from last winter. Given that there is now the adult male Baltimore bordering Doyle Park, folks interested in seeing this species should certainly look for that bird. Also at the Solana Beach site was an adult male Bullock's Oriole and feeders with 20 Pine Siskins in residence. Siskins have certainly arrived.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Nelson’s Sparrow - San Elijo Lagoon
A Nelson’s Sparrow was in view for about 15 minutes just after the peak of high tide this morning (Saturday) at San Elijo Lagoon near the end of the dead-end peninsula trail that goes north into the marsh not far from the Rios Avenue entrance.

The bird perched near the top of a little mound of weed stalks on the left (west) side of the peninsula about 30 feet from the dead-end of the trail.  Also in the same weed patch at high tide were about 20 belding’s Savannah Sparrows and one large-billed Savannah.  All the birds flew out into the marsh a little after 9 AM.

If you go looking for this bird during the next high tides, position yourself south of the weed patch no closer than the obvious bare-branched dead driftwood-looking bush, also on the left side of the peninsula.  At this spot, the sun would be at your back, and the birds seemed to prefer this sunny south side of the weed patch.  Any closer than that seemed to spook the birds this morning.

High tide this morning I believe was at around 8:20 AM.  Although the Savannah Sparrows were up and out at around that time, the Nelson’s did not pop up until about 8:40 AM.

Found a Black-and-white Warbler along Poway creek around 1:00 pm today.
It was not far from the sidewalk, moving between what I think are
Cottonwood trees near some mulch piles east of the Community Park and of
where a fenced in playground is. When I saw it, it was moving west,
foraging low on the tree trunks. Eventually it went pretty high into a
euc on the west side of the mulch piles. Lots of habitat there it could
cover.

This morning (11-13-20), Elizabeth Copper, Matt Sadowski, and I had the continuing 2 *green-tailed towhee* s right at the trail entrance at the south Dairy Mart pond (within 3 fence posts east of the dogs must be leashed sign); but no luck refinding the previously reported tropical kingbird.  4 adult *Ross' geese* , 1 adult *snow goose* , and 4 juv *snow geese* were in the SE portion of the sod farm; the dull-colored *Pacific golden-plover* was with killdeer in plowed dirt in the east central portion of the sod farm.  As Paul reported, the *yellow palm warbler* continued at the community gardens, although we had it in the north central portion of the garden, feeding on the ground among cornstalks in plot #134 & occasionally calling, and later Matt had it in trees along Sunset.

Yesterday, while conducting snowy plover surveys in closed portions of Sweetwater Marsh NWR, Matt, Lea Squires, and I had a juv *tricolored heron* , adult *reddish egret* , *surfbird* , and a male *McCown's longspur*.  The longspur continued this morning.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] cont. Yellow Palm Warbler and Snow Geese, Tijuana Estuary high-tide check
On Friday morning the 13th, the "YELLOW" Palm Warbler continues at the community gardens in the TRV. Still fully tail-less to the max. Dead center in the garden complex is an obvious flagpole with a red Marine Corps flag, and that seems to be the center of its preferred area to date. On the 10th it was several garden plots to the northeast of the flag, and today it was several plots to the southwest. Also this morning, the adult (since the 6th) and immature Snow Goose continue at the bottom of the Bay--either in the marsh or pond near the "Little Stint Island" or grazing on the school playing field on the south side of the bike path opposite the observation platform. Several Pelagic Cormorants are roosting at their usual site on the left side of the end of the Imperial Beach Pier.

A high-tide check this morning at the 6.9 tide of the Tijuana Estuary failed to find any Nelson's Sparrows, and relatively few marsh sparrows in all. The marsh just wasn't flooded enough to truly push everything to the edges. We had 2 "Large-billed" Savannah Sparrows along the S. McCoy Trail south of the headquarters, and a good total of TEN Yellow-crowned Night-Herons in all. Maybe the even higher tides on Saturday and Sunday will do better there...or try Crown Point on Mission Bay, or perhaps San Elijo Lagoon.

An early morning expedition (approximately 06:30) showed the Pacific Golden-Plover was still in the eastern part of the sod farm off Dairy Mart Road. It’s been there for about a week with the large flock of Killdeer.

I later returned with a couple of birders to help scope for the bird. By 10:30-ish, the sprinklers were going and the field in which the Killdeer and subject bird had been seen, were being plowed. Nary a Killdeer in sight.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Laguna Meadow Area 11/11/20
Hey everyone,
Took advantage of having the day off and hiked out to Big Laguna Lake.  Conditions were cold and snow-covered on the way in, and warm and slushy/muddy on the way out.
It was business as usual for the most part up there as far as birds go. Of note was yet another Gray-headed Junco and a Lewis's Woodpecker just Northeast of Water of the Woods which I'm assuming to be the same bird that was in the area last winter.

Big Laguna Lake itself was well populated with Mallards and Coots, accompanied by small groups of American Wigeon, Ruddy Duck, Cinnamon Teal and Bufflehead.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] new (?) Lapland Longspur (and how many McCown's/Thick-billed?)
Weds AM, the 11th, there was a Lapland Longspur near the south end of
the Fiesta Island dog run with the main assemblage of Horned Larks. The
larks were actually in several sub-groups and totaled slightly over 100
birds. No sign of the McCown's/Thick-billed that Gary photo'd there
yesterday. Given that there are photos of the McCown's there on 31 Oct
(Alison H.) and 10 Nov (Gary N.), and of the bird at Robb Field on 6 Nov
(m.obs.), a careful comparison of all three sets of photos needs to be
done to try to figure out exactly how many different individuals have
been involved. As for today's Lapland, the last sighting of any Lapland
was near dog beach in Ocean Beach on the 6th. So today's bird is
probably new, but who really knows for sure.

In other minor news, the off-and-on immature Reddish Egret (not as
consistent as the adult) at the San Diego River mouth was today at
Famosa Slough. A walk around residential Point Loma and PLNU was pretty
quiet, with a couple Western Tanagers as good as it got....

Good Afternoon Birders,
I spent another morning in the Reservoir Henshaw area. At least 1 adult
BALD EAGLE continues and I had a different GOLDEN EAGLE this morning. This
one was probably a second year female, yesterday's was an adult. The
highlight of the morning for me was a foraging WHITE-TAILED KITE along the
south side of the reservoir. My 1 hour point count from the east end of the
restaurant parking lot generated 46 species today.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] "YELLOW" Palm Warbler
This morning, Tuesday, there was a "YELLOW" PALM WARBLER in the
community gardens along Hollister Avenue in the TRV. This is the
"eastern" subspecies of Palm Warbler and is a casual visitor to
California. The San Diego Atlas lists 9 records for the county, and
there have been no additional records since the Atlas was
published--until today. The bird is missing its ENTIRE tail, and
probably even some of the longest undertail coverts, so there is
absolutely no wagging to be seen! But hopefully that means that the bird
will stick around in the area for some time. It started off about
1/4-1/3 of the way into the complex from Hollister, and was last seen
almost dead center. Essentially the entire underparts are washed with
yellow, as is the throat, the supercilium has an obvious touch of yellow
as well, and the cap is rusty tinged.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Coronado Tropical Kingbird, Summer Tanager
Monday morning there was a Tropical Kingbird with several Cassin's in
Coronado at the Ocean Gate to NAS North Island, and then a couple hours
later it was by itself on utility lines and the tall golf course netting
near Coronado X 8th (also along adjacent Balboa Ave.)--where I saw a
T.K. back on 23 Sep, presumably the same individual. A Tropical has
wintered in this area for several years now, so there's a good chance
it's the same bird back for another winter. Unfortunately, it spends a
fair amount of time, including roosting, on the off-limits North Island
golf course. About half the time it with Cassin's, and about half the
time it is by itself. A Summer Tanager was along the edge of the
Coronado Golf Course at Glorietta X 6th. Summers have been in somewhat
lean numbers so far this fall. After that, the morning quickly dropped
down to the level of B-t Gray Warbler...Overall passerine numbers seemed
low.

Good Afternoon,
I spent the morning near Lake Henshaw and am regularly surprised at the
bird diversity out there. From a stationary location about 1 kilometer
south of the reservoir I logged 48 species in 1 hour. If I recall correctly
I have had a 1 hr point count at this location with 61 species in the past.
The highlights were 1 adult GOLDEN EAGLE flying low west to east over Hwy
76, at least one adult BALD EAGLE (could be and probably is a second one
out there too) and a sub-adult (unknown specific age) BAEA. There are few
ducks but over 20 BONAPART'S GULL in the reservoir.

Still rare in North County despite frequency in San Diego & Mission Bay areas...  Patti & Patrick Koger initially reported a juvenile reddish egret to the NW of Rios Ave at San Elijo Lagoon this morning (11-9-20), then around 10:30 I had it foraging along the channel south of Manchester Ave between Ocean Cove and the nature center, then just before noon Elizabeth Venrick & Geoff Veith reported it being just west of I-5 visible from the trail east from Rios Ave.
Elizabeth & Geoff also reported a juvenile little blue heron off the Rios trail and Patti & Patrick later (around 12:15) reported presumably the same one west of the nature center & north of the western of the two new footbridges.
(There was a flock of at least 49 pipits in the fallow areas of the strawberry fields north of Manchester & east of I-5, but scoping through them produced no non-Americans or longspurs... may be worth checking occasionally though...)(no political implications intended...)

Hello all, just want to let you know I saw three phalaropes today at Sweetwater Reservoir at the far eastern end in the delta area. I thought they were red-necked phalaropes at first, but then I thought they possibly could be Wilson's phals due to size, pale gray back and white face without any discernable black patch behind eye. Im still awaiting confirmation on species but since today is the last day Sweetwater is open before it closes for the rest of the week until next Saturday I thought Id put the heads up out there... Reservoir closes at 4 p.m. Good luck.

Subject: Re: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Pine Siskin in Hillcrest 10/31
Following up on this Pine Siskin sighting by Nathan at the end of October, since Nov 3 there have been Pine Siskins at multiple feeders at different buildings in the Ruette le Parc complex in Del Mar, with at least one flock at my feeder numbering about 9 individuals.  I wonder if this influx might be related to the extensive burns in their habitat (wildfires) this fall to the north of us in the Angeles and San  Bernadino Forests.  This influx, while not unusual in sporadic years, seems to be on a larger scale than usual, but I wonder if anyone is looking at this systematically?

Probably not super exciting for most of you, but this morning around 9:30am I noticed a drab streaky bird on one of our sock feeders with the usual Lesser Goldfinches and House Finches. It was the first Pine Siskin (female) we’ve had visit our balcony (also a 5MR bird for me) and she has been returning to the feeder frequently and nipping at the LEGOs. Not sure how long she will stick around but if anyone wants to try to come have a look, you can probably view her from the sidewalk below our balcony. Message me for address/feeder check (it’s on the feeder as I type this at 1:50 PM) if interested, or if you know where I live already feel free to have a look.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Amazing Day at La Jolla
Hi all,

Today, I was one of many people seawatching at La Jolla Cove. After the morning hours, it was Gary N., Matt S., and me scanning back and forth for hours. I was there from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and had a ton of birds to show for it. The highlights were:

-4 Ancient Murrelets, two pairs flew by in the afternoon
-2 Arctic Terns, one adult one young flew by with Common Terns, pics of both
-2 Black-legged Kittiwakes
-4 Sabine’s Gulls (all young)
-250+ Bonaparte’s Gulls
-2 Sooty/Short-tailed Shearwaters, the second one flew close and Gary got good pics, should be IDable
-1 unidentified Shearwater arching up and down like crazy, the one that got away
-6 Black Scoters, mixed in with 2500+ Surfs
-2 Cackling Geese, single birds with flocks of Brant
-1 Leach’s Storm-Petrel, super close in, Gary and Matt S. got great pics
-Great movement of Common Murre, likely 50+
-1 Mew, 1 Iceland, 2 Glaucous-winged Gulls flying by amongst the California Gulls
-Good movement of Pomarine and Parasitic Jaegers
-Decent numbers of Red Phalarope, 2 Red-necked as well
-Always at least one Northern Fulmar in view

As you can see, a wildly successful day. I may have missed some other highlights, but this is most of them. Thank you to Nancy and Gary for keeping checklists. Weather is very similar tomorrow, so the great birds may keep coming!

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Longspur misidentifications

I thought it would be helpful to mention that while I was present in person at Robb field yesterday, and then subsequently when a number of people have sent photos of the longspurs they took for confirmation, there appears to have been a fair amount of misidentification of the longspurs present. There are in fact three Chestnut collareds present, one winter plumage male and two female looking birds, one that has some pinkish on the bill and one that seems to have mostly a pale gray bill. It seems that a fair number of folks would call out mccowns or submit photos of mccowns that in fact is the chestnut collared that has a bit of pinkish on the bill. The bill is too small, the pink is not bright and complete enough, and there's too much patterning on the bird on the breast and the face pattern is a little bolder. The mccowns in addition to being plainer overall, and having a more swollen, totally pink bill except for a dusky tip, also is clearly paler overall in plumage and this is particularly noticeable in flight. The other problem involved the male Chestnut collared that has a bolder head pattern (as well as this lady gray wash on the belly). At least a couple people with photos thought it might be a lapland. As best I can tell, the only for sure Lapland seen the last couple days has been farther out toward the dog Beach area and not in the main part of the park, although obviously somebody might have detected it there correctly. Anyway, those folks who took bunches of photos may want to double-check all their identifications of the longspurs present.

Also today, Trent Stanley photo'd a/the Greater Pewee at the west end of zoo property, east of Highway 163, though perhaps "only" about 400 yards, as the pewee flies, east of Redwood Circle. So it would appear that the bird regularly crosses the highway and forages in off-limits areas--probably not too much of a surprise. And lastly, a Hermit Warbler continues today at Friendship Park in Chula Vista, originally found earlier this fall by Sadowski/Pawlicki, and which is probably a returning wintering bird from a couple previous winters, but which is difficult to pin down. Also perhaps wintering, were single female Hooded and Bullock's Orioles today at Kimball Park in National City.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Thick-billed Longspur
Marcus et al.,


(Note: Thick-billed Longspur is not available as an option in eBird, so
entering it as McCown’s Longspur is the correct option, both refer to
*Rynchophanes
mccownii*, the bird found by Alison Hiers at Robb Field recently.)


While “official” changes are typically not made until publication, this
supplemental, single, proposal batch seemed to be such a priority that it
was released online separately from the other proposal batches (not left
for the first batch of 2021), was co-authored by a member of the North
American Classification Committee, and publicized even after the newest AOS
Check-List Supplement was just published. It seems that the name change is
here to stay, but I understand caution. For what it’s worth, a note on
Cornell’s All About Birds page (
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/McCowns_Longspur/overview) says “In
August 2020, the American Ornithological Society [AOS] voted to change the
name of this species to Thick-billed Longspur. This name change will be
reflected in the All About Birds page title, search results, and elsewhere
on the site with the next eBird/Clements taxonomy update.” I take that to
mean a global change to eBird, Birds of the World, Merlin, etc.


That general taxonomy update should have occurred this year if not for a
delay due to a large database migration at eBird. The eBird/Clements and
other global taxonomy often gets ahead out ahead of the AOS taxonomy (e.g.,
splitting Mallard and Mexican Duck a year before the AOS published that
change this summer), and I strongly suspect that the eBird taxonomic update
would have rolled out Thick-billed Longspur in late summer following
acceptance of the proposal if not for database-related delays. In the case
of *Rynchophanes mccownii*, this name change is not because of new genetic
evidence leading to a lump or split, but due to a cultural shift that the
American Ornithological Society has recognized. If we choose to use
Thick-billed Longspur, we, as birders, also recognize that cultural shift,
but can also simply use the new, correct, name without considering the
politics. Thick-billed Longspur actually employs a useful field mark (the
noticeably thick pink bill!), which is helpful to ID these dull-colored
birds we see in fall. Consider the etymology of the genus *Rynchophanes*:
*rynch*o from the Greek word for nose and *phanes* from a Greek root
meaning “to show” or “be apparent”. Of course, with eBird and field guides
still bearing “McCown’s Longspur” it will take some practice to communicate
without confusion, but I personally don’t see any reason to wait for it to
be published in a journal.


This is not intended to reignite public debate about the name itself, I
just wanted to get the word out on the change to the common name (note the
scientific name will retain the honorific *mccownii*).


Nice find by Alison Hiers!

All,

While the eBird taxonomy has not yet been updated (nor SDFO’s) , “McCown’s
Longspur” is no more - this species has been renamed to Thick-billed
Longspur. The more we use the new nomenclature, the sooner confusion will
end.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Thursday Nov. 5, 2020 trip offshore
Three of us took a look offshore Thursday, which included the Nine and
Thirty Mile Banks.. Very quiet overall.
Interesting were two juvenile *Sabine's Gulls* at 26.3 n. miles west of La
Jolla. (32.783349 N and 117.783498 W).
This area of the Thirty Mile Bank about as far west as one can go and stay
in the county. ( Tom Blackman has posted photos on his facebook page ).
These Sabine's Gulls are somewhat late and perhaps hold overs in the mid
weather conditions we've had this fall. Phil Unitt's *San Diego County Bird
Atlas *2002 shows two later dates 1 on 22 Nov. 1969 J. Dunn, and 1 on 6
Dec. 1999 G. McCaskie. I show one in my notes from 1 Nov. 2014. Most fall
records are between mid July thru October.
The upper end of the Thirty Mile Bank had much of the life today. The birds
there appeared to be chasing fast moving small bait fish pushed to the
surface by tuna. The flock there included Pomarine Jaegers, Northern
Fulmar, Pink-footed and Black-vented Shearwaters (many), Brown Boobies (2),
and many gulls including both of the Sabine's Gulls, and a small number of
Bonaparte's Gulls.
No storm-petrels today, not a surprise, this being close to their normal
departure. No phalaropes was kind of a surprise.

List from the birds from the ocean;
Surf Scoter 21
Pomarine Jaeger 8
Cassin's Auklet 8
*Sabine's Gull 2*
Bonaparte's Gulls 10
Heermann's Gull 12 (several on the Thirty Mile Bank)
Western Gull 100
California Gull 15
Common Loon 5
Pacific Loon 1
loon sp. 25
Northern Fulmar 5 ( 4 gray, one white morph )
Pink-footed Shearwater 7
Black-vented Shearwater 350
Brown Booby 6
Brandt's Cormorant 9
Brown Pelican 22

*As a side note;* We checked the San Diego Bait receivers for the
Red-footed Booby at both ends of the day with no success. For what it's
worth, I did ask an employee on the dock if the booby had been seen that
day. He replied he had not, but that "it came and went, and that they were
down to just the one the other had left" I ask if he had had two? He said
yes, and that they had been feeding both of them. I asked if they were
light brown coffee colored and he said yes. So maybe two Red-footed
Boobies? Might be worth checking photos if they exist? Not that far
fetched considering the number of red-footed Boobies we'd seen this fall.
We did also check the old fuel dock (a roosting spot for cormorants), the
security fence, Ballast Point ( a.m.), and Zuniga Jetty ( p.m.).
We did have a few Black Turnstones, on Zuniga Jetty, with one on the bait
dock and one on the security fence for about a dozen. No other rocky shore
birds seen.

Paul's painted redstart made a brief but cooperative appearance just before 7:30 this morning at the SDGE substation driveway on the south side of Tierrasanta Blvd just east of Tambor as previously reported.  For just under a minute, the bird was very visible foraging along branches & hawking from the large ficus just south of the gate on the west side of the driveway, then it disappeared after moving SSW through the oaks and myoporum along the fenceline with adjacent residential yards.

There is a new Pacific Golden plover today, this one a juvenile in with the large flock of 145 Killdeer resting in the cloddy dirt along the east edge of the Sod farm. Not easy to see from the side of the road. The little stint continued this morning on its favorite island off the end of 10th Street although it was not present at dawn but finally showed up at 7:00 a.m. Also on that same island at dawn but then flew to feed in the nearby school playing field to the South is an adult Snow Goose.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Longspurs
At 8 am this morning at Robb Field we saw two Chestnut-collared Longspurs and one Lapland in the ball field to the right as you drive in.  They were mowing the grass everywhere else and the birds had bunched into this one area.  Along with the Buff-breasted Sandpiper and many, many other birds.  We first saw the two Chestnut together then they flushed.  After that we found a Chestnut next to the Lapland.  Great side-by-side views.  Then after flushing several times more one group took off towards the water.  After that we only found one Chestnut.  Great views through the scope but difficult to get close because they flushed so often.  The Longspurs seemed to stay with the Pipits more than the Horned Larks.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] returning Painted Redstart (and playback use), 3 more Clay-colored Sparrows
A Painted Redstart is back for its second winter in Tierrasanta. In the
oaks and other thick, broad-leaved trees behind the green fence at the
closed-off driveway to the electrical substation along Tierrasanta
Blvd., about 1-1/2 miles east of I-15, and just 70-100 yards east of
Tambor Lane. It is often in the oaks and overhanging broad-leaved trees
just to the right of the gate. Closest legal parking is on Tambor. The
bird is NOT visible a lot of the time, given that one cannot cross the
fence, and it likely forages in many other areas. Listen for the typical
siskin-like descending call. Speaking of calls, this is a good time to
bring up the subject of using playback on our wintering stakeouts. I can
only imagine how many times people play recordings at the wintering
Painted Redstarts, Grace's Warblers, Hepatic Tanager, or whatever, over
the several months those birds are present--often just to shorten the
time needed to see it, or to get yet closer and closer photos. After a
while, it usually stops working. I am NOT against the playing of
recordings at birds to obtain better views, but typically that's for
individual birds that are not bombarded with such for multiple months
over multiple years. So, please consider NOT using them freely in such
situations.

In other news, I've seen yet 3 more new Clay-colored Sparrows over the
past three days, one in the Tijuana River Valley and 2 together (a
veritable flock!) near Montgomery Field. A "Slate-colored" Junco was at
Montgomery Waller Park.

What kind of documentation should one submit to the CBRC? Following are some
guidelines for submitting media and written descriptions that will be useful
for helping the CBRC evaluate records and archive documentation.
Documentation may be submitted directly to the secretary via email (
<mailto:<secretary...> <secretary...>), or by
using the online submission form (
<http://www.californiabirds.org/report_sighting.html>
http://www.californiabirds.org/report_sighting.html).



Media: This includes photos, audio recordings, and video. Photographs are
usually the most useful documentation for evaluating records. If you have
reasonably good (=identifiable) photos, please submit them. If possible,
please crop the photos before submission so that the bird fills most of the
frame. Also, please send originals whenever possible, and not screenshots or
back-of-camera photos. How many photos should you submit? That really
depends on the record. If it is a long-staying rarity that is easily
identifiable and seen by dozens of people, then a few photos (1-3 per
person) are sufficient. If it is a mega-rarity that is difficult to identify
and only seen by one or few people, then send as many photos as possible
that show the bird at different angles, postures, lighting, etc. Sometimes
it is also useful to submit audio and/or video recordings of the bird, as
some birds are more easily identified by their vocalizations. If relatively
short, most audio recordings are small enough to be submitted via email;
please submit those along with a brief note indicating the date and location
of the recording. Large audio files and video files can be submitted by
using a file sharing service; please contact the secretary if you need to
submit a file that is too large for email.



Written descriptions: Some written details should always be provided - even
the best photos should be accompanied by the name of the observer, the date,
and the location, at a minimum. Sometimes a photo can't be obtained or
vocalizations can't be recorded. In some cases, behaviors might be noted in
the field that aren't preserved well by photos. In these cases, it is
helpful to submit a written description of the bird. Ideally, this
description should be written as soon after observing the bird as possible;
it is often helpful to make written notes in the field, or even dictate
notes into the voice recorder on your smartphone while observing the bird,
from which you can later generate a written description. The most important
aspect of a written description is that you report only what you observed,
and not a general description of the bird from a field guide. At a minimum,
your description should include the date and location of the observation,
and a description of the bird (size and structure, plumage, vocalizations,
behavior). A brief discussion of how the bird was identified, and how
similar species were eliminated is also helpful. Other useful information
you might report includes optics used, distance from bird, lighting or
weather conditions, length of time viewed, and other observers present.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] continuing green-tailed towhee, tierrasanta, 11-4-20
At least one of the green-tailed towhees reported yesterday in Tierrasanta made a brief appearance just after 11 am this morning (11-4-20) where the main trail curves to its farthest point south as described previously west of Seda & south of Clairemont Mesa (earlier in the morning I'd talked to two pairs of birders, one of which said they'd seen it, the other of which said they had not, and another birder had also reported having had no luck when I returned around 10:45).  It was associating with a white-crowned sparrow and slowly crossed the trail from south to north, appearing then disappearing in clumps of buckwheat.  In contrast to yesterday's report, no calls were heard.
Two red-breasted nuthatches continued in pines in the same general area.
Elsewhere, a western tanager also continues in eucalyptus along the southern edge of the Farb Middle School sports fields & to the NW of Roadrunner Park.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Lindo Lake re-do and birds
I know many of you are concerned about the major work that’s scheduled to be done at Lindo Lake and its effects on the bird life there. Here’s some additional information, including the first map I’ve seen (only partially reproduced in the article) of what the east basin will look like upon completion of the dredging. Scroll down; the map's at the bottom. It shows the location of the two proposed “birdwatching areas”, as well as the two new fishing piers, and the very short article gives a link to a longer story, etc.
It’s too bad they didn’t reproduce the entire legend, but my guess is that the broken blue line signifies a route that can be used by wheeled (but I presume motorless) vehicles.
In any event, the map is the first visual representation I’ve seen of the County’s plan for the lake.

Around 3:30pm today, I followed up on Millie & Peter Thomas's report of a
Green-tailed Towhee this morning in Rueda Canyon in Tierrasanta. I was
surprised to find 2 of them calling back and forth, in the same location.

Along the Seda Nature Trail, from Seda Drive, head west on the paved trail
down the hill. It makes a S-curve to the left, and both birds were on the
left side of the trail along the curve.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] misc continuing rarities 11-2-20
This morning (11/2/20) at Villa La Jolla Park, Elizabeth Copper, Dennis Parker, and I had the continuing plumbeous vireo in the SE portion of the park and a western tanager in the northwest.  None of the other recently reported rarities were re-found.
As previously reported, 2 lapland longspurs continued at Crown Point.
At Robb Field, 2 other lapland longspurs were seen among the horned lark flock south of the tennis courts just before noon.  Just before 12:15, Elizabeth found a third longspur among the pipit flock southeast of the playground that appeared to be chestnut-collared, but all birds were flushed before we could get a definitive look, and neither longspurs nor most of the larks were re-found after that.  The buff-breasted sandpiper was seen but very difficult to initially discern sitting low in the grass in the western ballfield around 1:15, but then was flushed by dogs.  The tricolored heron was skulking in cordgrass at the far western end of the wetlands just WNW of the dirt parking lot and western ballfield at 1:20.

Hi all,

I refound the Mountain Plovers at the sod farm this morning. First spotted looking over the fence on the SE side of the sod farm (32.5478733, -117.0549438), but they were waaaaaay out there. Relocated on Dairy Mart Road standing here (32.5501896, -117.0630964) looking at where the bare field meets the field with irrigation pipes. Birds are sitting here (32.5496509, -117.0616114). Four are present, but only two are visible right now. Sorry for the mess of coordinates, hopefully that was intelligible!

After a nice morning highlighted by Palm Warbler, Lapland Longspurs, and a
Short-eared Owl, I stopped by the Seda Canyon in Tierrasanta (entrance on
Rueda Dr.) on the way home and found a group of 5 Pine Siskins, a Red-naped
Sapsucker, and a Red-breasted Nuthatch. All were foraging quietly in the
pines and eucs. eBird list: https://ebird.org/checklist/S75701778

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Continuing buff breasted and little stint, new Lapland

On Sunday morning we had the continuing Litttle Stint on the island off the end of 10th in Imperial Beach, but it was less cooperative than the previous two mornings appearing finally at around 7:00 a.m., new time, and only staying for a few minutes before all the birds shuffled and we think it flew elsewhere. But in past years it would come and go irregularly as well. Visiting birders Andrew and Vernon Howe report that the Robb field Buff breasted Sandpiper has made it to November and was seen first thing this morning. Dave Povey reports yet another new Lapland Longspur, this one with the pipit flock at the bottom end of Nestor Park or in the adjoining high school ball fields. And we had a continuing Green tailed towhee today at the community gardens on Hollister Avenue in the valley.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Grace's Warbler and Red-breasted Nuthatch, San Dieguito Drive, Del Mar
San Diego Region Birdsters,

Today (31 October) between about 10:45 am and 11:30 am I observed a male
GRACE'S WARBLER in the pine trees on San Dieguito Drive about 40 m north of
its intersection with Oribia Road in Del Mar (GPS coordinates Lat 32.9612
N, Lon -117.2563 E). This is presumably the same bird overwintering here
the past several years.

During that 45-minute period, the GRWA was seen twice for a total time of
probably less than a minute. During both visits it was very active,
foraging in the outer clumps of needles high in the pines, sometimes
hovering. It vocalized often, with its rich tschip call heard clearly both
times before the bird was spotted.

The GRWA ended its first visit to the pines by flying into the backyard of
the house on the east side of the road.

A male RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH was also seen preening and quietly foraging
amongst the same pine trees.

Bird on,

Carl Ebeling

Sorry for a delay in posting but we were not sure of this bird being a
Red-naped or Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Thanks to Paul Lehman for
checking the photos that Jane Mygatt took. The bird was on the main
trunk of a pine tree on Xana Way close and north of Alga but after a
few minutes it flew off past the pool and we couldn't relocate it.https://ebird.org/checklist/S75608857

I observed a female-type SUMMER TANAGER this morning (31OCT2020) at Buddy
Todd Park in Oceanside. My impression is that it has been slow for this
species so far this fall. With all the people visiting Villa La Jolla Park
recently, I don't recall a single report at this location (which is usually
very reliable). I also observed a getting late warbling vireo. Both birds
were seen in the ficus tree next to playground to the west. There is a
sufficient amount of ripening fruit to attract a good variety of birds.
Photos are in following ebird report.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Masked Booby, final chapter; Buff-breasted Sandpiper, not final chapter?
Dear friends,

The Buff-breasted Sandpiper is old news now, but I was surprised to see it
still here, 12:45-1:00 PM today 31 Oct, on the westernmost ball field at
Robb Field--the Snow Bunting field for those who remember back to 2009. Over
the past couple of weeks it has learned to be indifferent to soccer players,
as today it foraged, paying them little mind, while they ran back and forth
scarcely 20 feet from it.

Also, the Masked Booby picked up at Del Mar on 2 September 2020 finally
failed its second round of rehabilitation. Lexi Mena of Sea World was kind
enough to deliver the carcass to me at the museum on Thursday. Yesterday Lea
Squires skinned it and will complete the stuffing and stitching on
Tuesday--SDNHM 56611.

Good birding,

Philip Unitt

All,

This species is clearly on the move this year. Studying their varied
flights calls is the best way to increase your odds of encountering one.
I’ve been hearing them with some regularity on San Clemente Island the past
few weeks but only get eyes on perhaps 1 in 5 as they “zip” over.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Possible McCown's?
We stopped by Fiesta Island north of the tern nesting area this morning and picked slowly through a huge flock of Horned Larks.  There was a bird that appeared to be a Longspur but was not streaked and colored dark enough for a Lapland.  It was basically varying shades of tan coloring overall.  It had a distinct pink bill, larger bill than a Chestnut-collared it seemed.  And it had a light rusty red patch on its shoulder.  Very faint streaking on the upper chest and very white below that.  Thin streaks over the head.  Not like the dark lines on a Lapland.  When it flushed there was white on the tail but we didn't see the pattern well.  I'm not well versed in Longspurs so I am just throwing this out there so everyone can be on the lookout.  We got good looks through the scope but no pictures before it was flushed by dogs.

east 0.25 mi. to the hairpin curve which passes through the woods.  The bird was at the west end
of the woods close to where a dirt road leads to the right off of East Grade.
Mountain Bluebird, eight at the far east end of Dyche Valley.  Many Western Bluebirds to sort throughin the grasslands.  A scope would help.  You can probably park near the only barn in the area (on the
right as you drive east, about 4.1 mi. east of the South Grade intersection), but do not block the
access road.  All of the land at this location is private property.

The stands of cherries along the road as it passes through Dyche Valley attracted many Phainopeplas
and Purple Finches.  A Golden Eagle also frequents this spot.

The Greater Pewee continues at Balboa Park at the spot where Jim Pawliki originally found it. Patrick Shipley located the bird at the top of the right-most dead pine just off the footpath at 32.7335,-117.15805 next to a concrete and cobble culvert draining toward the canyon. The bird was found and observed for several minutes at 12:10 PM on October 29. Patrick got several photos, one of which shows the bird about to land on the snag with a large butterfly in its bill. This photo was posted to ebird by me.

Subject: Re: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Encinitas Community Park R-t Pipit & Vermilion Flycatchers (10/29/20)
Hi Birders,
I returned yesterday afternoon at approximately 4:30 to look for the
Red-throated Pipit I heard. When I arrived, soccer practices and a variety
of exercise groups had taken over most of the open grass areas, and it had
gotten extremely busy since I initially left. I didn't stay long since it
appeared the birds had flushed and gone elsewhere.

I returned today (10/30) at approximately 1:30 to find 50-ish American
Pipits present, but no Red-throated Pipit with them. While my pipit count
was up from yesterday, it looks like I only found a portion of the flock
that is actually present. I noticed Alison Davies birded the park today and
saw 100+ pipits, but also had no luck.

The park is definitely worth keeping on your radar if passing through the
area this Fall. I imagine weekends are very busy there at all hours, but it
seems weekdays are pretty quiet and good for birding the grass until about
3:00?

Good Birding,
Jimmy McMorran

Sorry for the late posting.  Yesterday morning (29 Oct), the clay-colored sparrow continued at the west end of 8th St in Coronado, seen by Elizabeth Copper & me.  We joined Dave Povey and had three vermilion flycatchers (male, younger male, female) back and forth in southern Nestor Park and the northern sports fields of Southwest HS, and at Tesoro Grove just to the north of Nestor Park were two black-throated gray warblers.  We had two tanagers in the ficus at the NW edge of the TJRV Bird & Butterfly Garden parking strip, at least one of which was western, and four common ground-doves skulking in the northern third of the main tamarisk-ringed area.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Battle of the Buff-breasteds!, 2 Mountain Plovers, stint correction, TK

Sorry for the third post about the little stint, but I made a typo in the previous message, and I had the bird this morning from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m., not 9:00 to 9:45 a.m., and probably by after 9:00 a.m. the heat distortion would be a problem if it's a sunny day. And incredibly, not only is the Robb Field Buff breasted Sandpiper still present, but the TRV sod farm Buff breasted Sandpiper is still present today as well. I would have missed it and the big flock of almost 50 killdeer, as they were all roosting in a cloddy dirt field along the east side, where hard to see, except the young peregrine falcon that frequents the area flushed them all up and actually chased the Buff breasted for a short period of time before breaking off the chase. And at the South end of the sod farm a freshly smoothed dirt field there now has two Mountain Plovers. Lastly, the Tropical Kingbird continues at the main Dairy Mart pond and at 11:30 is calling a bunch right next to the main observation platform with a couple Cassins.

Let's see who can be first to get Buff breasted Sandpiper for their November list!

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Stint hints, palm, vesper, green tailed

For those contemplating a look for the little stint in the ensuing weeks, in addition to the difference in bill size and shape, although beware short billed Westerns, the stint is the size of the smallest Western, it is very subtly a slightly darker gray than the pale gray of most Westerns, including the dark patches on the side of the upper breast, although you need direct comparison and good light, and the bird shows faint but somewhat noticeable pale edging to a number of coverts and tertials on the wing whereas the Westerns are mostly just a flat pale gray. The split supercillium is split only at the base of the supercillium so that is only a subtle difference, and the bird was so well behaved this morning that I could actually determine that it appeared to have no webbing between the toes whereas it was fairly easy to see webbing on the Westerns. The bird was calmly feeding along the right edge of the close half of the island with a few Westerns the entire time I was there from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 when I departed, at which time the heat distortion was starting to get a little problematic.

In other Friday news, there is a Palm warbler and a green tailed towhee at the community gardens along Hollister, and a Vesper sparrow with the Savannah sparrows at the Sunset ball fields.

Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Encinitas Community Park R-t Pipit & Vermilion Flycatchers (10/29/20)
I had not been to this park birding in over week. I was there this afternoon with kid about 2:15-3:00 so she could get out of house and I did not have my bins or camera. The pipit flock has apparently grown from approximately 6-10 birds to roughly 25 or so today. While I never definitively layed eyes on the bird to ID it, there is clearly a vocalizing RTPI with one of the groups of AMPI when they fly. I was unable to track it down. Going back with gear in a few minutes to see if I can refind and document.

Two VEFL are newly arrived, one nearing adult male and another imm/female. Both I was able to get ID shots with my phone.

Good Birding,

Jan Nordenberg's Green Tailed Towhee continues. Lovely bird and a lifer.
Thanks Jan. Also a road runner and a rufous crown sparrow at Piedra's
Pintadas Trailhead parking lot. RR was on street side of parking lot near
the pines. Sparrow was on trail on other side of parking lot.

FYI: Bentonite is an extremely dense fine particle clay that is often used to create a lining in ponds, lakes, reservoirs to prevent water loss through percolation into the groundwater... so not concrete...
