Small correction -- this was the 11th Monterey County record for Vermilion Flycatcher -- the 3 in spring/early summer the I mentioned, but 8 others in fall /winter, including one on Christmas Day 2016 in extreme southeastern MTY at property not open to the public, but near Cholame Valley.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Vermilion Flycatcher in MTY
Monterey County's tenth record of Vermilion Flycatcher was found today, 17 June, at the old Rancho Canada golf course in Carmel Valley, now a park run by Palo Corona Regional Park, who now have their headquarters there. The adult male was found by Karen Kreiger, birding with Gail Griffin and a number of other students from Rita Carratello's bird class, along the fencing along the western border of the park property, and north of the Carmel River. Word got out by early afternoon and many locals saw it through this afternoon. It was foraging from low perches, including dead wood sticking up from the dry grass or the low branches of bare trees, or occasionally on the wire fence that separates the old golf course from property to the west that is slated to be developed. From the parking lot and visitor's center at the Palo Corona Reg Park headquarters, and at the big flagpole, two paved paths head mostly downhill to the southwest side by side. The one to the left goes to a bridge over the Carmel River; the other parallels it for most of its length until it hits the fencing. The flycatcher's favorite perch was a downed lot with limbs sticking up (one limb has two pine-cones attached), and all of this is only a foot or so above the dry grass. At other times it would go higher into a dead tree, and sometimes it would just disappear for 20 minutes or so. Some had in singing as well as actively foraging.

Of the ten MTY records, this is just the 3rd for spring or early summer, and all three were bright males. The first for spring/summer was at Big Sur R. mouth on 14 June 1989, and the second at Carmel R. mouth on 29 May 1997. All the Vermilions have been in fall or early winter, and those include adult males, young males, and females. The most recent was an imm female at Pt. Pinos on 14 Sep 2017.

Good luck,

Subject: Lost Cockatiel on Westside

HI, two days ago, our sweet cockatiel escaped our pet sitter and we are taking every avenue looking for her.  A friend suggested that we contact your birding group so that you could be on the look out for her. 
Snowy is a gray and white cockatiel with a white splotch on the back of her neck.  She responds to "Snowy" and "Bird."  She was hand raised so she is people friendly.  She was last seen near Derby Park on the corner of Woodland Way and San Jose Ave.  We are offering a $100 reward if she is found and returned to us.  If found, or if you sight her somewhere, you can contact me at 831-818-8178.
If you could share this information with your membership, I'd really appreciate it!
Thanks so much!Heddi Craft

There are at least 7 nests in the open space where the Miramar used to be.  Does anyone know if their nests and chicks will be protected?  It seems like a perfect way to introduce our summer visitors to the wildlife of the area.Barbara Novelli

The other one I believe is a recently fledged Spotted Towhee. The bill is
too fat (sparrow-like) to be a blackbird, and the head and body too stocky,
with a very long tail. You can see the hint of black adult head to come.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Couple of yard birds
Hi Chris,

I believe that is a fledged Spotted Towhee. Note the thicker, more conical
bill and Towhee stance. It does not have the white line above the eye which
the female blackbird has. You can also see a bit of the white flash on
the side of the much longer tail. Our recently fledged Spotted Towhees are
out and about today. Today, one was on the steep learning curve for the
bath :-)

Hi Birders -

Summer, not Spring, is the time for teachers to do their “Spring Cleaning.” I came across two VHS tapes that I no longer need or can use. The videos are:

Video 1: The Advanced Birding Video Series: The Small Gulls of North America (with Jon Dunn)
Video 2: The Advanced Birding Video Series: The Large Gulls of North America (with Jon Dunn)

Free to whoever gets them first. I live in Marina.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] College lake DEIR
Dear MBB,
Please read a recent update on responding to the College Lake DEIR.
College Lake is considered one of the most significant freshwater wetlands for birds in the Monterey Bay Region.The  water impoundment project at College Lake needs careful consideration, identification of habitat issues, clarity of management plans and resources prior to this project going forward.
Mudflats usually exposed in Spring have been known to feed  thousands of migrating and nesting birds would be underwater until Late Summer. Mitigation for alternative/replacement management lands for mudflat and feeding sites are vague in this DEIR.Attached is a letter outlining some of the areas of major concerns with links to the DEIR.
The first deadline has been extended to June 21.
Thank you for taking some time to consider responding to concerns about this critical habitat,
Lisa Sheridan-  Santa Cruz Bird Club

Looks like avian pox. Poor guy.

On the plus side, there are lots of healthy RWBL chicks fledging at Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove. They nest across the road on private property, but the newly fledged kids come over to hang out.

I saw this Red-winged Blackbird this morning. I had never seen a blackbird with such head lesions before.
It was at an unusual location, the small pond at the Veterans Cemetery at Fort Ord. This is the only Red-winged I have ever seen here. This one only stayed for 10 minutes.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] What happened with cormorant colony at Natural Bridges?
I have been monitoring the Pelagic Cormorant colony at Wilder Ranch for the Breeding Bird Atlas, and numbers are way down there compared to last year. According to Alex, this is the case for most of the cormorant colonies in Santa Cruz County. I presume this is because of poor feeding conditions for the birds, but I do not know of any data that verifies such a situation.

Hi birders,

Sorry for the late report but earlier this week, Nancy and I saw COMMON
MERGANSER chicks on Monday and Tuesday evening, around 7:30pm at the
Aptos Creek mouth. This may be the first time that I've seen merganser
chicks. A few fun images from Monday:

As others have reported, the RED FOOTED BOOBY was on its usual perch at
the end of the pier at Sea Cliff State Beach. Alas, by the time we
finished with the Mergansers, it was too late to photograph the booby.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Space Available on Yuba Pass Trip
Hi Everyone-

The June 15-16 Santa Cruz Bird Club trip to Yuba Pass and the Sierra Valley still has available spaces, so if anyone is interested in a weekend birding trip to the Sierras, please let me know. There are no fees for this trip.

The trip description that was put in The Albatross newsletter follows:



Yuba Pass and Sierra Valley Saturday and Sunday, June 15-16, 2019

The central California coast has spectacular birding, including a tremendous variety of winter species, great resident birds and unlimited potential during both Fall and Spring migrations. But how do we counter the post-breeding/pre-migration doldrums of mid-June and early July? Easy; head to the Sierras!

Our trip to Yuba Pass will also visit the eastern slope and provide a taste of Great Basin birding in Sierra Valley. We’ll spend Saturday birding the Yuba Pass and Gold Lakes area, hoping to see Hairy, White-headed, and maybe a Black-backed Woodpecker, along with Red-breasted and Williamson’s Sapsuckers. Songbird targets will include Audubon’s (in breeding plumage), Nashville, Hermit and MacGillivray’s Warblers; Cassin’s Finch, Red Crossbill, Evening Grosbeak, singing Fox Sparrows, Lincoln’s Sparrow, and Hammond’s and Dusky and Flycatchers. We’ll look for American Dippers and expect to see Calliope Hummingbird. Mountain Quail will be calling everywhere (but we’ll have to get lucky to see them). Pine Grosbeak and Northern Goshawk are possible. Western Tanagers are common, and the songs of Hermit Thrushes will confirm that we’re in the Sierras.

Sunday we’ll venture into the Sierra Valley, hoping to see Vesper, Brewer’s and Sage Sparrows, Gray Flycatcher, Green-tailed Towhee, Sage Thrasher, Clark’s Nutcracker, assorted ducks and shorebirds, breeding White-faced Ibis, and maybe Sandhill Cranes.


Meet on Saturday morning at 7 a. m. sharp in the parking lot adjacent to Yuba Pass Campground on Highway 49. Participants are responsible for their own food, lodging, and transportation. Cabins and motels in the area often book up; reservations are recommended. Numerous campgrounds are in the area, but word is that the Yuba Pass campground is closed due to snow.



Leader: Clay Kempf

Trip limited to 15 participants. To sign up or ask questions, contact the leader at <ltjaeger...>

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Orange-crown baby boomers
I have spent the last 3 days working my block in the Santa Cruz Mts,
just off Hwy 17 and west of it. All the rain seems to have fueled a
bountiful year.

There are baby Orange-crowned Warblers everywhere. Yesterday I had a
remarkable experience near the intersection of Bear Creek Rd and Skyline
Blvd; It seemed like a Bushtit flock was moving through. I got my glass
on one and it was a young Orange-crown; then another, then another, then
another. It was a flock of them: rather Bushtit-like in spacing,
movement and even the sounds they were making. But every one was an
Orange-crown. At least 10 of them. I have seen post-breeding flocks of
Orange-crowns in the Sierras, but nothing like this near the coast.
Today I returned to the area and everywhere I went, family groups of
Orange-crowns. And quite a bit of singing as well, which I think
indicates double-brooking. In dryer years they seems to be far less
vocal (inclined to sing) by June.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] June Birding email for Santa Cruz County
For those interested, here is the June birding email for Santa Cruz County edited by Alex Rinkert to reflect current conditions. As always, I hope it helps to enhance your birding experiences this month. Good birding!

June 2019

June has arrived in our county and because migration is a year-round event, there are plenty of birds to search for this month. Early June is a great time to look for “Eastern” and other vagrants at hotspots on the coast and also in the mountains. Rarities such as Red-eyed Vireo, Summer Tanager, Indigo Bunting, and Rose-breasted Grosbeak sometimes turn up in June as do some warbler species like American Redstart, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, and Northern Parula. Willow Flycatchers often appear in places such as the Pajaro Valley wetlands and river corridor, Bethany Curve, Natural Bridges and Lighthouse Field at this time of year, so it’s good to review their field marks in preparation. Another bird that is present in June but seldom reported is Common Poorwill, particularly around Loma Prieta.

The last spring migrant Cedar Waxwings will pass through in the first two weeks of June. Will any breed at Pajaro Dunes this year as they did in 2016 and 2018? Western Kingbirds are considered late as June goes on, though a few may still be found. By the end of the month, Allen's Hummingbirds will be seen in lower numbers, while the first fall migrant Rufous Hummers will start to arrive. It’s easy to watch lots of different species of swallow babies being fed now, but also keep an eye out for migrating or dispersing Purple Martins, as they are sometimes seen at places like Terrace Point, Natural Bridges, and in Watsonville. And Black Swifts are possible now. Watch for them foraging with swallows in the afternoons on the north coast at places like Moore Creek Preserve, Wilder Ranch, and Sand Hill Bluff.

Along the coast, more Sooty Shearwaters and Elegant Terns can be seen as the month progresses. The large flocks of Brant heading north are tapering off as are the Loons, although a few lingering individuals will remain close to shore, often in alternate plumage. Pigeon Guillemots are plentiful and Marbled Murrelets can be seen with a spotting scope off the Waddell Bluffs. All three cormorant species will have young now, and you can look for their nests along the cliffs on the Old Cove Landing Trail at Wilder Ranch, the cement ship off Seacliff State Beach, and the Eucalyptus groves at Pinto and Schwan Lakes. Watch for Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons nesting in these groves as well. Black Oystercatchers can also be found nesting now at Wilder Ranch, Davenport, and elsewhere where there are scree piles at the base of sea cliffs. Watch for the very first fall migrant shorebirds as they begin arriving at the end of the month. Also keep an eye out later this month for returning Heermann's Gulls as they begin to move in for the summer, and June is still a good month to look along the coast for Black Skimmers.

Among ducks, Mallards, Wood Ducks and Common Mergansers can be seen shepherding flocks of young during the month, though some females will still be sitting on nests. At Shorebirds Pond, you may see Gadwall raising young ones this month as well. Also, keep an eye out for occasional winter duck species that may be summering near the Pajaro River mouth. As June progresses, male Mallards and Wood Ducks will gather and molt.

Since June is the peak of the breeding season, some birds are still building nests, some are feeding young in the nest, some have already fledged young and are getting ready to parent another brood, and some post-breeders will be getting ready to leave by the end of the month. With so much breeding activity and the continuing possibility of finding some rarities, June promises to be an exciting month to get out in the field as much as possible. I wish you good birding!

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Black Tern
Is anyone planning on reporting to MBB the status of the Black Tern found at Zmudowski State Beach? 
 I subscribe to e-bird alerts so have that information but I am sure there are those folks who have no idea about it's occurrence. 
I realize that there are many who only submit e-bird reports but  this a rarity that should be more widely disseminated.

Thanks,
Earl

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Let's try this again - Pinto Lake County Park yesterday
Oops, I hit send by accident!

Hi Birders,

Yesterday at Pinto Lake there were lot of fledgling CHESTNUT-BACKED
CHICKADEES and OAK TITMICE. PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS, WARBLING VIREOS,
WRENTITS NUTTALL'S and ACORN WOODPECKERS, AND SPOTTED TOWHEES were
calling in various areas on the west side. CALIFORNIA SCRUB and STELLER'S
JAYS were observed carrying food. A BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK is still singing
in the area near the dip after the closed bathroom/bench area on the 2nd
arm of the lake.

The RED-TAILED HAWK nest has a fuzzy-headed baby per Larry Corridon, but I
didn't see it. I did see the parents, however.

The RED-SHOULDERED HAWK nest has young as well. AMERICAN ROBINS became
extremely upset in the area near the nest. I am 99.999% sure their nest was
predated by one of the parent hawks. It is hard for my tender heart to see
that, but nature has its ways. I did see a parent Red-shouldered take some
food to the nest.

I saw something odd. A pair of OAK TITMICE were foraging in an oak near the
picnic bench below the stairs and one of them appeared to be poking her
face around in a nest. She even scrunched down and wiggled in it - like she
was shaping the nest. Oak Titmice are cavity nesters *only*, right? Maybe
she was just trying it on for fun - like a wild pair of shoes that you
would never be caught dead wearing in public.

The most exciting thing was seeing *three *AMERICAN BITTERNS in close
proximity to each other. There were 2 females and a male. The male had his
epaulets tucked in (but I could see them) and he was larger and more
dust-colored. The females were smaller and more reddish. The one we could
see best had gorgeous, intricate patterning on her back. This female
approached the male, and fluffed her feathers three separate times, the
second time "presenting" herself for him. I do hope we see babies in June.
Last year there were eight young there. The three adults is the highest
number of Bitterns I have seen at Pinto this year. I believe for Larry,
too. I really thought we might see some mating action, but he did not puff
his white epaulets or boom (vocalize) at all. He just eyed her and moseyed
away. Maybe he needed Bittern Viagra.

I spotted a "Furbie" GREAT HORNED OWL fledgling in full view on the large
oak tree on the north side after the gate nearest the end of the parking
lot. It was hilarious when a cheeky red squirrel went right up to it - with
a couple of feet! The baby looked at it with a wide-eyed expression that I
would caption, "What the hell is *that*???"

Let's keep our primaries crossed for bittern babies!

Happy birding,
Lisa

Thinking back, I remember sneezing during this past weekend while visiting a friend. While no nest with young was found, there was some courtship displayed.

I thought it was the champagne (and, of course, my infinite charm!!), but maybe it was the sneeze??

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] RFBO at the Cement Ship
I was back at Seacliff last week and I checked multiple times with no
booby joy. Guess I was a few days early. Very much want to think it was the
bird from last fall and hope it is around when I get back again in
September. Here is a link to a photo taken today, posted on the Seacliff
State Beach website.

Hi All

This bird hasn't been reported in eBird since 15 January! Has it actually
been absent that long, or have people just stopped looking for it? Same
bird for sure?

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Fwd: Hooded Oriole BBA notes and id points
I've had many opportunities to observe several pairs of Hooded Orioles at my property  over the years.One  challenge has been to identify the younger fledged birds from the adult females after a month or two when they became independent and stop acting like curious babies.  
Today I finally was able to see and capture an id point that I suspect will help me and possibly some of you in the future.
The mature females  appear to have a darker upper mandible and in this case (in photos),  the tip of the lower mandible is also dark.I'm not sure the pinkish bill of the juvinile  its going to stay that way through the whole summer but I suspect it will take several months to a year to darken. I've attached a few pictures to my ebird report showing some good beak studies as the adult female was feeding the recently fledged young.
I've also heard the younger ones have a downward curved bill. My images were questionable on that.
This is also the first year I've ever observed a female coming to the seed feeder all day long for sunflower seeds and carrying the seeds off.A few of my shots show her feeding the seeds to her fledgling too. Have any of you observed this?Perhaps the Birder's Handbook needs an update?

 Feel free to add any more comments on Id tips related to females and juveniles.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] sneezing confirms breeding
That's right, sneezing can confirm breeding. Yesterday I visited Baldwin
Creek to see if I could confirm breeding for a pair of GREEN HERONS.
Atlasers had seen a pair repeatedly visiting the extensive willow patch near
the creek mouth earlier in the season, but there was no further indication
they were nesting. After walking under the canopy and inspecting the many
stick structures high above, most built by woodrats, I came across one about
the right size and shape for a heron. This was the most promising nest out
of dozens of candidates, but unfortunately the nest appeared unoccupied. At
that point I had been on the hunt for a while now and was considering what
to do next. A breeze blew through the trees and I couldn't resist the urge
to sneeze. ACHOO, and the head of a wary heron rose out of the nest above
me! When the heron shifted its position I could see downy nestlings through
gaps in the nest bowl. Breeding confirmed.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Fun birding at Natural Bridges
Hi birders,

Nancy and I visited the previously reported GREAT HORNED OWLs yesterday
afternoon at Natural Bridges. We saw the 2 adults and 1 owlet. A few of
fun images:

http://www.lighthousenet.com/photos/birds/web_ready/owls/owl_great_horned_190527b.jpg

http://www.lighthousenet.com/photos/birds/web_ready/owls/owl_great_horned_owlet_190527b.jpg

http://www.lighthousenet.com/photos/birds/web_ready/owls/owl_great_horned_190527c.jpg

The owlet is starting to grow out it's adult plumage but still has down.
According to Kenn Kaufman's book, Lives of North American Birds: "Young
may leave nest and climb on nearby branches at 5 weeks, can fly at about
9-10 weeks; are tended and fed by parents for up to several months."

Fun birding,

The female ANNA’S HUMMINGBIRD is nesting again! This time she is reusing

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Rose-breasted Grosbeak at Natural Bridges
Friday about noon Stephanie Singer, myself, and a few others got beautiful
views of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the Natural Bridges pond/boardwalk
area. We were on the far side of the pond by the willows, and it flew from
the willows towards the boardwalk side of the pond, landing in Eucalyptus
trees bordering the pond. It stayed there for several minutes, allowing a
nice view!

It was a nice day with all of the regular birds, plus migrants like the
Hooded Oriole (building nest), Wilson's Warblers (several), Black-headed
Grosbeak (heard) and Western Tanager (heard).

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Where did it go?
Sharon Hull and I braved the traffic to drive down to Shorebirds Pond this afternoon to check out the Phalaropes. Unfortunately we discovered that while there were indeed 4 Phalaropes there, today all 4 were undeniably Red-necked. None resembled the excellent photos that Randy took yesterday, although one today was paler and still retained some of the characteristics of basic plumage. But it was of Red-necked basic , not Red.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Red Phalarope
There was a RED PHALAROPE in basic plumage in with 3 RED-NECKED PHALAROPES at Shorebirds Pond today (Tuesday). Mary and George Felix of Pajaro Dunes first spotted it today and passed the info to Norman and myself. We weren't sure it was a Red Phalarope at first but photos sent to Alex confirmed it. If you go there to look for it, remember that from now until Labor Day, you must be in and out of the park by 3:00pm.

Good Birding,
Randy Wardle
