The two male Black Scoters were in the yacht harbor and ween from Vincent Park today.  They were at the far east end of the harbor and it was an easy walk to have a closer view.  Thanks to those who have previously reported them.

I was just a few minutes late, but the Tropical Kingbird was just north of the wooden railing this morning.  It was well seen by Fred Safier and photographed by a mostly non-birder friend, Walter.  At least one Cackling Goose was on the lawn between the concrete pond and the rose garden, four common sparrows and the CA Towhee were all seen, some Buffleheads and Ring-necked Ducks remain, along with the Common Goldeneye.  A Mockingbird came to the ground south of the equestrian rings to investigate the seeds I throw for the sparrows, then looked around as if to say, "That's it?"

> The long staying Nelson's Sparrow, first found in Dec. at the 51st exit to the Richmond/Albany shoreline, was present today at the high tide, eventually showing itself in the artemsia near the trail. This area is south the bench where shoreline vegetation extends out in the marsh. From here the bird retreats to the shoreline shrubs at high tide. This was my 5th try here and as many at MLK shoreline before connecting with Nelson. Worth it !

This early afternoon we braved the wind and rain to participate in the
Great Backyard Bird Count. We were rewarded with two Bald Eagles
simultaneously soaring directly above the east end of the dam, one
carrying nesting material. Let's hope they establish their nest where we
all can see it.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Short-eared Owls Martinez
Took a late drive to Waterfront Road in Martinez today and drove east, crossed the railroad tracks and parked at the TransMontaigne Pipeline trailhead just before 5 PM.  I walked way out and spent quite a bit of time waiting while dusk unfolded.  White-tailed Kites, Northern Harriers, and at least one Turkey Vulture kept me looking, but finally I had two Short-eared Owls flying pretty far out there.  From my angle, they were toward the tanker dock for the Tosco refinery at Avon.  By the time I made it back to the car it had been at least 1-1/4 hours, but I was able to escape any rain.  It was an enjoyable evening.

A warning though about driving Waterfront Road right now.  There are several flooded areas and the entry for the TransMontaigne parking area is more than a foot deep.  This is definitely not for the faint of heart.

The calm before the storm at Lake Merritt in Oakland. Lots of the usual wintering birds, plus a not-as-common one, a Hooded Merganser (immature male, I think).
I was hoping to see a Barrow's Goldeneye, but didn't spot one.
I recorded video of cooperating birds all the way around the lake. Video here: https://youtu.be/pAVQ8tmYO2E

[Edited Message Follows]

[Edit re link to photo] The Hooded Mergansers are still at one of the lagoons in Bay Farm. We saw them yesterday both morning and afternoon along with some Common Goldeneye, Scaups and the usual Mallards, Coots, Buffleheads, etc. I have only seen them in one particular stretch -- that length of the lagoon between Aughinbaugh Way and the Ferry Terminal, and much closer to Aughinbaugh.

Hi all,
A couple days ago I briefly visited Vincent Park in the late afternoon, and
saw a color-banded White-crowned Sparrow. Does anyone know who might have
been banding these birds? I'd like to report the sighting if it would be
useful. I did get some photos.
Thanks very much,

Heard not seen. One really loud call on my way to the car.  Hammering sounds in the distance
The tree across the street from me was cut down due to a lot of internal rot.  My tree where the Nutalls nested is still up. Will be interesting to see where they end up.
Also, looks like a later spring. Plum trees that for years were blossoming in late January have yet to really erupt in the first week of February. I wonder how that will affect local birds overall.-Marcus Pun

My wife and I managed to arrive while the bird was still in the
flowering (prunes?). We had really good views of it for about 10
minutes, until it went around the corner of the sedge. All of us walked
over and looked to see if it was on the other side of the patch of sedge
or if it would come out, but of course no luck. (It was easy to find.
Just look for a group of people with cameras and/or binoculars, all
aimed at the same spot.)

This afternoon I got lunch at Doyle Hollis Park with a couple of friends and looked for the continuing Palm Warbler. We had a brief view of the bird in a tree along 62nd shortly after we first arrived, around 1:30, but it quickly flew off to the northeast, apparently to the gated parking lot across the street. After lunch, around 2:30, we found it again at the edge of the sedges to the west of the bathroom before it flew back into the trees along 62nd. It was much more cooperative this time and gave good looks for maybe fifteen minutes before it disappeared in a small patch of sedges in the sidewalk. It's quite a beautiful sight when it's in those flowering trees!

Good birding,

Hi Everyone,
This morning I got to the park around 8:45 and strolled the pretty landscaped grounds for a few minutes (worried that I had left my car in a street cleaning day zone), but figured . . . this little guy is worth a ticket!
Luckily, I did not get a ticket, and even more fortunate, I actually spotted the bird . . . ! . . . with the help of a young mother in tow with front papoose and binos. She called me over and alerted me to the bird's presence. I managed three photos (none very good) and a 4-second video. (If interested in a glimpse, in case you weren't as fortunate as I to have spotted the bird, google gambolinman + youtube + palm warbler.) 
I hope to post a short piece at my blog on this wonderful - wayward? - visitor to Emeryville.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Palm Warbler at Emeryville
Not sure if my earlier email got through but will try this.

I saw the Palm Warbler today at 2 pm (continuing bird). In back of restrooms - but better looks at corner of Doyle and 62nd St. - most of the time on ground at base of corner tree but also on street curb and gutter near that tree. 

Good birding!

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] search for Palm Warbler Emeryville Feb. 6
I went back today looking for the Palm Warbler which I missed yesterday.  Though it was the briefest of glimpses, the Palm Warbler was in the bushes near the taco truck at the southwest corner of Doyle Hollis Park. 

There is a small triangle of landscaping near the taco truck, the most prominent bush has reddish branches and is hard to miss.  The Palm Warbler moved at the bottom of the bush and I was able to see the bright yellow vent area as the bird disappeared around the bush to the right. It seemed to move behind the bush to the left, but despite my patience in waiting, I never saw more than that.
So I stood in line, bought a drink and walked slowly around the park again before finally heading off.  Other birds seen include an Anna's Hummingbird, two California Towhees, 3-4 White-crowned Sparrows and a few Rock Pigeons.
At least I saw part of it.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Claremont Canyon, Berkeley
Hi everybody and thanks to the many people who answered my message
earlier today.

I went to Claremont Canyon in the afternoon and, with very detailed
instructions, had no trouble finding the spot where the summer tanager
had been seen. I stayed there for a couple of hours (from a little after
3pm to almost sunset) but the bird did not show up. In the very nice
weather I enjoyed the acorn woodpeckers (up to three) thinking that the
oak tree is their private property, often chasing the Nuttal's
woodpeckers that try to feed there also. Other birds I identified
include bushtits, oak titmice, Oregon juncos, California towhees.

I thank also the people that volunteered to show me around during my
stay in Berkeley (which is about ten more days). I am not sure about my
week-end plans yet, but if I'll have time for birding I'll get in touch
with some of you.

Best,

Alberto

I left early today for my union meeting in Oakland, thinking I could find the Palm Warbler in Emeryville in the park at Hollis and 62nd Street.  It did not work in the 1/2-hour or so I had there, 11:20 to maybe 11:50.  I did find Tim Howe and Ed Vine, though.  My list consisted of 4 White-crowned Sparrows, some Rock Pigeons flying past and one Black Phoebe.  Maybe another time . . . .

Hello.

I am an Italian birder visiting UC Berkeley for a couple of weeks.

I should have some free time this afternoon, and the forecast is no rain
for today, so I was planning to go to Claremont Canyon.

The summer tanager wintering there (which would be a new bird for me)
has been sighted lately?

I understand correctly that I should look for it along the lower part of
the Stonewall-Panoramic trail?

Thanks for your help,

Today we did a pre-Super Bowl outing to Contra Loma R. P. where we enjoyed periods of light rain, bright sunshine and some spectacular rainbows.

Merlin: Along the East Side Dr., we had very good views of a male Merlin.

Tricolored Blackbird: Near the boat ramp we spotted several in a mixed flock of blackbirds.

Osprey: There were two Ospreys searching the reservoir for recently-planted trout.

Burrowing Owl: We also spotted this bird along the East Side Drive.

American White Pelican: We counted eight on the reservoir.

Good birding,

Tilden Nature Area, Contra Costa, California, US
Feb 1, 2019 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Golden Gate Audubon Society, First Friday Birdwalk, February 1, 2019, Tilden Nature Area. To Jewel Lake by the road and back by the Lower Pack Rat Trail.

Today's theme was Winter Survival of Birds, especially pertinent this week with the extreme weather in the Midwest a concern for birds and those who love them!

I will post the notes at <EBB-Discussion...> <mailto:<EBB-Discussion...>

We had a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks "in copulo" at the TNA entrance, a pair of Hooded Mergansers at Jewel Lake, and the Red-breasted Sapsucker continues at the cotoneaster behind the first picnic table at the "blue placard" parking spaces near the entrance. Allen’s Hummingbird has returned, as predicted by the flowering of the Pink-flowering currant.

28 species were seen by 41 observers.

Mt. Diablo Audubon Society had a very successful field trip to the Martinez area today. We birded McNabney Marsh from the north and south, a bit of the Pt. Edith Trail from the TransMontaigne Pipeline, and parts of Martinez Regional Shoreline near the marina along the river. When I left, our 23 participants had seen/heard 77 species.







Highlights include 3 falcon species, Merlin, Am Kestrel and a Peregrine Falcon which landed on one of the islands in McNabney Marsh. We had 14 species of waterfowl, which included up to 12 Blue-winged Teals in the south end of McNabney along the entry road to Mt. View Sanitary. We also had a Caspian Tern flying near the old ferry pier at the Martinez Marina. This was the second of this species seen on our field trips in less than a week. Another was seen last Saturday at Shollenberger Park in Petaluma.





The 5 gull species included a young Glaucous-winged Gull and 3 Thayer's (now Iceland) Gulls, all seen from the south observation platform for McNabney Marsh.

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] Summer Tanager - Claremont Canyon - 1/28
At approximately 11:30 today, we re-found the Summer Tanager at the same location where it has been reported recently by many others. The bird reappeared around 12:35 and provided very nice views as it visited the second oak, as previously described by others. Many thanks fort the help of so many. Very cool bird.

Good birding,

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Black Scoter, Richmond & Ferry Point
The two previously reported male Black Scoters were seen today, January 29, 2019, from the deck of Salute in the Richmond Marina at about 2 p.m. Looking left from the deck to the rows of moored boats the scoters were swimming with a small flock of Surf Scoters.

Later out at Ferry Point at Miller Knox Regional Shoreline Park all along the rocks there were still thousands of gulls. In with the mix one second year Heermann's Gull was spotted. Interestingly in the whole walk which included the lagoon at Miller Knox out to Ferry Point and back the only ducks seen were a few Mallard and Bufflehead.

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] Groups.io transition
1) Please double-post to both Yahoo and Groups.io until Sialia has made the transition, otherwise your posts will be lost from the Archive link there. Sightings which are not shared that way will be forwarded until that is completed.





2) Check your Spam folders regularly; email providers are getting aggressive, and posts to groups like ours (both Yahoo and GIO) are getting lost for some folks. Quickly mark them as "not-spam" or you may be unable to get any future sightings except online.





3) If you have had old photos on the Yahoo group which you would like saved, either post a link to them on EBB-Sightings GIO, or request a download before the old group is discontinued.





4) It has been suggested that EBB-Sightings and EBB-Discussion should be merged. <EBB-Discussion...> is an excellent place to share your opinions on that question.

I found a leucistic Black Phoebe on Saturday at the drainage canal sort of place near the intersection of Rheem Blvd and Fay Hill Road where Fay Hill Road intersects with Frontiers Drive.

It has a creamy gray head and an all white back and wings. It was calling and fly-catching and looking very flashy in this plumage. I hope it stays safe from predators.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Wildcat Marsh Short-eared Owl, 1-26-19
Good evening birders,
I birded Wildcat Creek and Wildcat Marsh this afternoon after blissing out
at the Keller Cove herring run. Best bird was a Short-eared Owl flying over
the marsh and perching on a couple posts at about 3:30 pm. Viewed it from
the junction of Wildcat Creek and Wildcat Marsh trails.

Also found a Greater White-fronted Goose with a small flock of Canada
Geese. They were in the last pond before the Landfill Loop parking lot, the
pond with the big solar panels surrounded by low cat-tails.

Bird on,

This afternoon I had a Townsend's Warbler show up briefly in my yard (near Morcom Rose Garden). This has happened only a couple times in past years.

Thanks for all the tips on where to find the Summer Tanager! It was right where Robert Firehock said in his Groups.io message, frequenting the 2nd oak tree in a row of 3 just south of the tree swing area after the 2nd switchback. It is feeding at the woodpecker holes about 3/4s the way up the tree, perhaps getting insects caught in the sap. We saw him at approx 3 PM today.



I had trouble posing on the other site, so I'm posting here.

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] Pt. Richmond Herring Spawn, Friday, 1/25
I originally posted the report below on EBB groups.io but then saw that it did not appear on sialia. I went back and read the recent posts from the webmaster, but confess I don't understand them or maybe just don't have the patience. Hence the re-posting here on yahoogroups. Please excuse any bad cyber-habits on my part.

Upon reading Ryan Bartling's post on the herring spawn at Pt. Richmond this morning, Charlie and I motored from the Berkeley Marina to Brooks Island, arriving around 10 a.m. Much of the feasting may have concluded, but thousands of birds were present along the shoreline and breakwater and in the bay. It was a nice surprise to see a group of 17 BRANT among the scaup.

The following eBird record has conservative estimates and includes some passable photos taken on my Canon-ito to show a fraction of the abundance. We stayed at a distance from the assembly, hence numbers designated to gull sp, cormorant sp, etc.

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] black scoter back at Richmond Marina
We saw 2 black scoters about a week ago at Richmond Marina, but have been looking and didn't see them until today. We thought they may have just been passing through. But we saw the 2 males again today and they were calling. They have been hanging around in the boat docks E and D. They were close to the walkway to the right side of Dock E, just across from Salute today. Many birders may remember the little forlorn black scoter who was always calling and chasing female scaups in previous years. We figure one of these is him and he brought a buddy. Hope they stay awhile, they are so much fun to listen to.





In the same area near Salute, there was a snow goose and her(?) entourage of 8 white-fronted geese. We have been seeing this entourage on and off for about a month, and they move from the Salute-Rosie pathway over to across from Friendship park. They are very approachable.







Oh, and the weather is glorious - lucky we live California!

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] Heather Farm Friday Jan 25
Ran into Bob Dunn and Tracy Farrington this morning near the dog park crosswalk. They saw the Tropical Kingbird where the sidewalks meet between the concrete and mostly natural ponds. It was long gone by my arrival. But together we viewed the nearby juvenile male Common Goldeneye and the Merlin atop a conifer just west of the dog park. Another observer said he had the Common Gallinule at the very south end of the big pond.





On the north ball fields were about 200 gulls, almost all of them Mews. Probably less than ten of them were Ring-billed. I counted 192 total, but they were moving a bit. They were later flushed by a jogger.





At the Contra Costa Canal end of that ball field parking lot, I found a nice Red-breasted Sapsucker. In the same area were Robins, a White-breasted Nuthatch, a Cedar Waxwing and a couple of Lesser Goldfinches.

Green-winged Teal numerous

In addition, there were many Northern Shovelers, and fewer numbers of Gadwall and American Wigeon.

Subject: [EBB_Sightings] Gull class Feb. 9-10 2019
BIRDERS and ALL,







John Sterling and I are hosting a GULL identification class on February 9th and 10th. There are a few spots left, so don't wait to join us.





The first day we will gather at my home in El Dorado Hills. My house backs up to a riparian area and home to many different bird species. Our day will begin with a Continental breakfast in our back area, while we enjoy watching the many, many birds that come to our feeders and seed. Throughout the day, we will cover various aspects of gull identification, including many, different gull images with lecture and I.D.tips of the more common species that occur regularly as well as the scarce vagrant larids.





Our second day is spent birding at various locations we have identified from scouting areas with big gull concentrations. We begin our day early, meeting up to carpool from a easy accessible location for all.





Use the link below to sign up.





See you then!
