> The term "seabird" encompasses any bird species that spends a substantial part of its life in a marine environment, foraging and breeding. Birds within this class generally have a longer life span, breed later, and produce fewer young than other birds. Many seabird species are highly migratory, with some known to travel over 40,000 miles each year. The birds that visit and reside in the National Marine Sanctuary System connect our country's ocean, Great Lakes, and coasts.

I believe this bird is a recently fledged pigeon guillemot. They are
starting to leave the nest "cavities" that are located on pile caps under
the wharf deck.
At least two of the nests that I've been monitoring this year have finished
out there.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Salinas River National Wildlife Refuge
Hello Birders,

In anticipation of arriving shorebirds, we went to Salinas River National
Wildlife Refuge yesterday.

There were a couple of dense, shoulder-to-shoulder groups of Sanderlings.
The clusters were not enormous, but it was nice to see a few hundred packed
tightly together in these groups. They were molting and had a "fuzzy" look
to them. I was under the impression that they were very tired birds. A few
would break off from time to time to work the waterline for food.

On the beach, there were two Black Turnstones working a big pile of beached
seaweed for food. It was fun to watch how they flung the sand! There were a
few Black-bellied Plovers, one of which was still in full breeding color
and was quite beautiful. We only saw a couple of Marbled Godwits and about
a dozen Long-billed Curlews. Also only a few Caspian and Elegant Terns.

Around the pond were a handful of Semipalmated Plovers, including
juveniles. There were four American Avocets and less than 20 Red-necked
Phalaropes.

There were an amazing number of House Finches in the area near the parking
lot and just a few molting American Goldfinches.

Most remarkable to me was the number of Barn Swallows! Several hundred Barn
Swallows were either flying around or perched on dead stalks of vegetation.
Did they stop to rest and feed here along their migration? I have never
seen so many in one place before.

We saw no raptors at all.

I cannot help but compare the number of shorebirds seen yesterday to the
numbers seen on August 4th, 2015. I was there with Lisa Sheridan and the
numbers were so impressive - perhaps eight to ten times more than what we
saw yesterday. I hope the reason is the timing of the visit rather than a
decline in birds, but I know it must be both.

- Lisa

Hello Birders!

It's that time again! I am working on the Albatross Newsletter for the
Santa Cruz Bird Club.

Raptor Day was last Saturday at the Arboretum - were any of you there and
did you take photos? If not, could you direct me to someone who did? I am
also looking for a short write-up about the day. Or not short - whatever
someone is willing to do.

THANK YOU!

Hi MBB Friends,

My next DFO Bird Bombs drops on Thursday August 4 at 7:00 pm.

"It Has Yellow Legs"

Register here:
https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Uz98t9PkQU-V8SJuYzMFhg

We will focus on seven species of small to medium-sized shorebirds with leg
color in common: Greater Yellowlegs, Lesser Yellowlegs, Solitary Sandpiper,
Spotted Sandpiper, Stilt Sandpiper, Long-billed Dowitcher, and Wilson's
Phalarope. We have a Colorado focus, but lots of good info for west
coasters!

Fall shorebirds are moving through, and this Bird Bombs will help you
identify and enjoy them. Bird Bombs are helpful bursts of ID info in a live
30-minute Zoom webinar.

Register for other upcoming DFO Bird Bombs here:

Brian, (and I go by Mac, by the way)

I know it is confusing, but at San Lorenzo Pond were I wrote my initial posts, I did not see those ID's until several hours later. Then when I finally got it on the computer and could compare it with other birds I knew was probably a warbler of some kind, and when I looked up COYE, I was fairly convinced. But before I delved into it further, I thought I would post it on Flickr's, "Bird Identification Group" and on iNaturalist, because I think there are people there who have fun identifying birds, and to me it seemed like a fun one.

Basically, I posted here because I thought it might be a Green-tailed Towhee *embarrassed* and people would like to see it. I did not anticipate being tied up for hours trying to set up some equipment, so in my head, I would be home soon, and post the photo, and if it were a rarity people could be ready to look for it.
I posted on the ID Group because the members enjoy posting birds.
I posted on iNaturalist because the data is useful, and a lot of people enjoy ID'ing birds.

Had I known it was a common bird I would not have posted it here. I will dispense with further updates!

When it gets complicated is when the different venues are not in agreement. I don't know why, but I feel that knowing the guesses would be useful.

Art,

Wasn't this previously identified as a Common Yellowthroat? If you look at
photos of immature COYE on ebird you'll see the greenish tail. Also bill
shape, tail length, plumage and habitat support imm. COYE.

Awww! That looks like possibly a juvenile Green Heron. These are such
intelligent and beautiful birds. And I know just where the kids can see
several Green Herons, but it is a bit sketchy. San Lorenzo Park has
several Green Herons working the pond. The nearby homeless encampment
makes is a dubious place to take children. But seeing them stalk fish,
stand on lotus pads and perch in trees is great fun. Still, I'm sure their
curiosity is peaked by the dead heads. Something powerful and deadly. It
sparks the imagination! Get them interested in birds! That is a good

It wouldn't let me send the photos because they were too large, but this

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Possible Roadrunner at Manzanita Park in Prunedale
Someone has posted on the Prunedale community Facebook page that they saw a
Roadrunner (GREATER ROADRUNNER) within Manzanita County Park in Prunedale
( 17100 Castroville Blvd, Prunedale, CA 93907 ).

The observer is not a birder but seems familiar enough that they could not
have confused it with anything else. The observation seems plausible as the
habitat is generally suitable. The nearest Roadrunner sightings I am
familiar with are off of San Juan Grade Rd, a couple old reports in
Salinas, and Fort Ord. I will try to get more details from the observer
about where in the park it was seen- most people spend time around the
sports complex or walking the wide perimeter trail.

It may be worth mentioning that the injured YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO was found
nearby near the corner of Paradise Rd. & Desmond Rd.

If you park outside of the gate at Manzanita Park on Castroville Blvd
please note that there have been some recent break-ins there, although a
hidden security camera may have finally been installed (not sure).

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] White-ish American Goldfinch
Hi Lisa: One other birder asked if it could be molting. Elisabeth Foster sent an article about AMGO that was unrelated to the bird in question. It says that AMGO's are somewhat unusual in nesting in late July to September which makes molting seem less likely to me. Here is the link: https://abcbirds.org/bird/american-goldfinch/ <https://abcbirds.org/bird/american-goldfinch/>

I found this image of a partially leucistic AMGO by googling. It is similar, although the one on my deck has the black forehead.



Unfortunately, the photos I took were through a window with an older iPhone and so are not very sharp.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Peep Identification Help
Today this afternoon I photographed several peeps at Corcoran Lagoon.
Obvious choices of common peeps would be LESA and WESA while others such as
BASA or SESA would be rarities. I have several photographs of two different
individuals. If you are willing to chime in, please share one or two field
marks that support your ID so I can l and other readers can learn to
improve their peep ID skills.

The first pair of photos are of an individual that was very dark compared
to most peeps I've seen. It was browsing in shallow water along the edge of
the sand bar.

The second pair of photos are a lighter individual. There were two other
similar peeps associating with the lighter bird. They were browsing mostly
out of the water along the edge of the sand bar.

Thank you in advance for any and all feedback.

Thanks for making me look more closely.

According to Birds of the World:

Males have distinctive bluish gray cap and nape and pinkish rosy hue over
face, throat, and breast; neck feathers tinged with pink iridescence.

Females have olive gray cap and nape, olive brown face and throat, and tan
breast; neck feathers usually tinged with olive green iridescence, although
some pink iridescence occasionally occurs.

This would seem to be a female.

This is an adult female with olive-green iridescence on the side of the
neck. Males are similar but typically have the neck patch an iridescent
pink color. These colors may vary with light angle.

Hope this helps.

Subject: RE: [MBBIRDS] Re: A Mourning Dove with a few green metallic feathers on its neck.
Arthur

The answer is that you don’t always see it because it is iridescence, and a particularly narrow area of it on a Mourning Dove. The angle and light has to be just right to see the iridescence, and this is why most photos do not show it. The patch is bold only in males, which also have the longer tails. Iridescence on the necks of pigeons and doves occurs throughout the group, in some species it is very bold, and also the neck patch can sometimes be textured by the special shape of the neck feathers, as it is on the Band-tailed Pigeon, or Rock Pigeon.

OK, never mind! I looked in some more places and found many examples of this in Mourning Doves. I just did not remember this feature of metallic feathers on the neck, and none of the All About Birds examples showed it, and none of my other shots show it either. But these, of course, are not random samples. I pick mine for the look that I like, most likely. Anyway sorry! I should have check more than two sources before asking!

Thank you for sharing this! Now I can finally put that Black Scoter on
my life list (BTW, if anyone remembers the date that the male Black
Scoter was seen off Westcliff Drive in the relatively recent but
pre-Covid past, please let me know and I'll put the correct date in. I
think he was reported on this list and I haven't been able to locate any
eBird record.)

I don’t think a specific date should be given in such a circumstance, unless it is the actual correct date. Better to use the 1/1/1900 list building date and leave it as an incidental list. The data in these cases is not very useful for eBird public output.

Dear Friends:

Recently, while pondering my life list, I happened to look up target birds needed for my Life List; I was hoping to see a list of rarities that I did not have because I have never gone, for example, to the hills of central Texas to get the Black Capped Vireo. What I saw instead was a list of fairly common birds that are on the target list because apparently I had never entered old lists that included a species from when I lived in other parts of the country.

 

For example, when I lived in North Carolina Brown Headed Nuthatches were a dime a dozen, you could go out any day and see dozens of them; heck, I could even sit on my desk and look at the Loblolly Pine just outside and sooner or later a flock would fly in and start foraging. But although I was a birder I was not a careful lister and somehow there is no North Carolina list on which a Brown Headed Nuthatch appears; and so according to EBird I have never seen this bird.

Very Galling.

 

Another example, are Golden Winged Warblers which regularly passed through Wooded Island every May when I lived in Chicago. It was always an event to see them, but once they came through they would hang around for a good four or five days. And they invariably came through every year. Which means I saw them about 9 or 10 springs in a succession. But the same story, there is no Chicago list that has an actual Golden Wing on a specific day. 

 

My question: I would like to reclaim these rather common birds and have them appear in my Life List--it would swell the list by at least 12 species. How should I do this? Should I just make up a date (hypothetical) and a place (not hypothetical because I know exactly where these birds were seen). And if so should I do this with all these limbo species. It's one thing to do this with resident birds like BH Nuthatches, but with Golden Wings its trickier since once the birds had passed they did not appear in other weeks in May. 

 

Am I condemned to forego the Golden Winged on Ebird? Am I to head to Chicago some week in May in the hopes that my visit might coincide with the window when Golden Wings migrate through? Or is there a way (kosher or slightly non-kosher) to enter the species into EBird and 'rescue' a well-known species from the limbo in which it now floats? Any creative solutions?

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Ethics of Reclaiming 'Limbo' birds on EBird.
I have pieces of my life list in my Audubon photo ID 3 book set. I have
place and date next to the name in the book.

I was going to put them in as "sighting" or something like that name.
Basically I am just telling them I saw one or more of these birds in this
place on this day. That way it doesn't influence their species distribution
monitoring because I am not telling them what I DIDN'T see.

There is some import format they have where you can put your data in a CSV
(spreadsheet) file and then upload it all at once rather than going through
each form individually.

I had good intentions, but then my ADHD got the better of me and I
couldn't work up enough dopamine by myswlf to do it.

Not sure that helps but I thought I would share
Thanks

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Ethics of Reclaiming 'Limbo' birds on EBird.
Hi Shantanu,

Another approach to consider, is to enter in a "Historical" observation
via a browser on a computer (i.e. not using ebird on a phone). I've done
this a few times when I feel I can reasonably guesstimate the date with
reasonable accuracy (+ or - a few days).  In some cases I've added other
data like start time, duration, etc. Example: I probably birded
mid-morning that day, so I'll record 10am as a start time and perhaps 30
min. to 1 hour effort.

As ebird states, a "Historical" record is when:

"Birding was your primary purpose, but you cannot estimate start time,
duration, and distance;..."

That being said, if I can't reasonably guesstimate the week, or worse
yet the month of the observation, then I'm out of luck. But "your
mileage may vary"...

My 2 (guesstimated) cents,

Pete Sole'

eBird has specific instructions for reconciling life birds with eBird lists
in just such a situation

https://support.ebird.org/en/support/solutions/articles/48000804866-enter-your-pre-ebird-life-list

The one drawback with this system that I've found is that your life list
might appear "out of order" as these "life list reconciliation" checklists
will appear before all the others. But if that doesn't bother you, it's a
good way to quickly get your number up to where you think it should be.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Ethics of Reclaiming 'Limbo' birds on EBird.
Dear Friends:
Recently, while pondering my life list, I happened to look up target birds needed for my Life List; I was hoping to see a list of rarities that I did not have because I have never gone, for example, to the hills of central Texas to get the Black Capped Vireo. What I saw instead was a list of fairly common birds that are on the target list because apparently I had never entered old lists that included a species from when I lived in other parts of the country.

For example, when I lived in North Carolina Brown Headed Nuthatches were a dime a dozen, you could go out any day and see dozens of them; heck, I could even sit on my desk and look at the Loblolly Pine just outside and sooner or later a flock would fly in and start foraging. But although I was a birder I was not a careful lister and somehow there is no North Carolina list on which a Brown Headed Nuthatch appears; and so according to EBird I have never seen this bird.
Very Galling.

Another example, are Golden Winged Warblers which regularly passed through Wooded Island every May when I lived in Chicago. It was always an event to see them, but once they came through they would hang around for a good four or five days. And they invariably came through every year. Which means I saw them about 9 or 10 springs in a succession. But the same story, there is no Chicago list that has an actual Golden Wing on a specific day.

My question: I would like to reclaim these rather common birds and have them appear in my Life List--it would swell the list by at least 12 species. How should I do this? Should I just make up a date (hypothetical) and a place (not hypothetical because I know exactly where these birds were seen). And if so should I do this with all these limbo species. It's one thing to do this with resident birds like BH Nuthatches, but with Golden Wings its trickier since once the birds had passed they did not appear in other weeks in May.

Am I condemned to forego the Golden Winged on Ebird? Am I to head to Chicago some week in May in the hopes that my visit might coincide with the window when Golden Wings migrate through? Or is there a way (kosher or slightly non-kosher) to enter the species into EBird and 'rescue' a well-known species from the limbo in which it now floats? Any creative solutions?

When I arrived around 7 a.m. at Upper Loma Prieta, Liam Murphy and Dave
Lavarondo had already seen a BELL'S SPARROW.

Later, Liam got some photos of a RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW. All three of us
heard and saw it, but it was backlit, so not the best of looks.

Liam had to leave, but Dave and I stuck around for another couple of
hours. We had lingering looks on a female BLACK-CHINNED SPARROW and were
also rewarded with close-up views of RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW through my
scope. Lots of singing. The RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW seemed to be hanging
out with, or chasing away, juvenile juncos, and zipping across the road
between Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties.

Good birding!
