Subject: [MBBIRDS] Red Crossbills, Purple Martins
I've had several RED CROSSBILLS fly over and near my house (Mount Hermon)
in the last hour. Just so folks know they're still around.
Maybe a flock of 8-10.
Earlier on our bird walk, we had 6 or 7 participants, and noted a breeding
pair of PURPLE MARTINS at a pine snag at Ponderosa Lodge, Mount Hermon.
Let me know off list and I could take you there, or share coordinates.
Be aware it's private property, but respectful birders are welcome.

Just up Empire Grade from where UCSC grad students are battling the University, 3 RT Hawks, looking diminutive, were battling a Bald Eagle high above ( near the Arboretum).

At every hawk swipe the Eagle appeared to swivel completely around (on the tail-to-beak axis).

If anyone's interested there are 2 Red Necked Phalaropes under the trestle.
There are also thousands of Sooty Shearwaters flying by offshore, and a

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Brookwood Drive Bird Walk Today
Hello Birders,

It was a great day out there today! We had four types of flycatchers
(Olive-sided, Western, Black Phoebe, and Western Wood-Pewee). There were
Black-headed Grosbeaks galore with breeding activity going on, Swainson's
Thrushes with their amazing songs, a good number of Hutton's Vireos (some
fledglings were being fed), many Dark-eyed Juncos, four kinds of
woodpeckers, Wilson's and Orange-crowned Warblers. There was a lot of Hairy
Woodpecker activity including an active nest with young visible at the
hole, and a rather vicious sibling fight that went on for a while! They
even tumbled to the ground while fighting. There was a family of four
Red-shouldered Hawks, a Cooper's, and a Red-tailed Hawk. Breeding season is
in full swing there.

eBird list:

Good birding!
- Lisa

Thanks to all of you who replied to my request for bird ID assistance. Yes,
that scrub jay could have had a worn tail, but it was indeed drizzling out
so it was likely wet as well.
I'm attaching a couple of photos here of the great horned owls who are
nesting near our house. She commandeered the red-tailed hawk's nest just as
the hawk was preparing to settle in herself.
Happy Monday,

Dear guests & friends of A Season on the Wind,



We can't wait to see you soon in CA!

Thank you so much! We encourage you to arrive at least 10 minutes before the performance begins.

A Season on the Wind | Music for Migratory Birds
May 18-26 2024, CA, USA Tour

Tickets: www.bowerbirdcollective.org/upcoming <http://www.bowerbirdcollective.org/upcoming>



The Bowerbird Collective proudly presents ‘A Season on the Wind’, a cinematic concert based on author, ornithologist and conservationist Kenn Kaufman’s book of the same name. This event is an inspiring ode to migratory birds, and an unforgettable night of musical storytelling. A musical and visual journey from the shores of Lake Erie across the Americas, this 50-minute performance stars three internationally acclaimed musicians, and features spectacular visuals and soundscapes. Created by the Bowerbird Collective, an award-winning Australian-based organization making art for nature, at the invitation of the Biggest Week in American Birding festival and Kenn Kaufman himself, the work features a newly commissioned score by The Brothers Balliett (NYC), whose music is praised by the New York Times as “vivid, emotive, with contemporary twists”.

Also featured on the program is 'Rivers are our Brothers', a song cycle by Majel Connery on ecological responsibility told from the point of view of the land. Commissioned by Musica Sierra and created in partnership with Learning Landscapes, an educational program of the Feather River Land Trust, the songs in the cycle take a first-person view of nature, ascribing human qualities and feelings to elements of the landscape: water, trees, mountains, rivers, etc. You can stream the cycle on Apple Music <https://music.apple.com/album/id/1620904978> , Spotify <https://open.spotify.com/album/2FdZMODBm9g04bnc092ldw> or Bandcamp <https://majelconnery.bandcamp.com/album/the-rivers-are-our-brothers> .

Program:
'Rivers are our Brothers' song cycle (by Majel Connery, with The Bowerbird Collective) - 20 minutes
Intermission
A Season on the Wind (by The Bowerbird Collective, Majel Connery, & The Brothers Balliett) - 50 minutes

Hi Folks,

finally wrapped up the checklists for our Davidson Seamount survey from the
3rd to the 9th of May (57 in Monterey Co.), thought they might be of
interest to some. High winds and seas made for tough conditions, but are
the same conditions some of those Procellariiformes love so much.

Thank you for your suggestion Barbara, but the gull I saw wasn't a

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Re: off list email about pintolake
Hello MBB just sending this again, carbon copy to the MBB, sorry MBB if this is off topic...
Just incase bernadette ramer didn't get the off list email directly. I'm certain if it goes through MBBthat this info will fall into the correct mailbox to deal with the issue..

I am frequently out on "pinto lake" doing both birding and fishing, mostly birding..while out on the boat near the shoreline noticed three wooden pallets layed out flat over the water trampling down the toollies to make a sort of dock.
below is the original off list email I tried to send to bernadette ramer..

there seems to be a group of farm workers that have setup three pallets out ontop of the toolies over the water

not sure what they are being used for, if they are fishing there illegally or just hanging out and drinking
or both..

some empty beer cans were on the shoreline a while ago I didn't notice if they were still there

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Vireo
While at CARE Park yesterday I sighted — but didn’t manage a photo of — a
bird which I couldn’t ID with certainty. My initial sense was a Warbling
Vireo even though I hadn’t heard any Warbling Vireos singing. Then I
noticed the very prominent white eye ring which made this a mystery to me.
When I checked Merlin, I saw it reported a Cassin’s Vireo — and no other
vireo species. Checking a field guide, Cassin’s looks like the closest
match to the bird I saw, briefly but with binoculars.

As this is an unfamiliar bird to me and it bears some resemblance to the
general appearance and sound of the more common Hutton’s Vireo — which has
been sighted in the area frequently in this location — I was reluctant to
report it. Though Cassin’s have been reported in the county recently.

Any advice on a 25% iffy sighting of a rare bird without documentation?
Also, I’ll ask more experienced birders to keep an eye out for Cassin’s at
this location in case it helps confirm my 25%.

CARE Park is open. I was there yesterday and I see a lot of eBird reports
for the Horned Lark along Clearwater Rd.

I’ve been having good luck at the UCSC Arboretum in the past couple of
weeks. There are Lazuli Buntings and Black-headed Grosbeaks in the ravine
outside the back gate. Plus many of the usual suspects inside the
arboretum proper.

There are a few spots in SCZ county that often give me great photography
opportunities:

* Pinto Lake County Park
* Lighthouse Field
* Neary Lagoon
* Westlake Pond
* CARE Park (reopened?)

Some are better for overcast and some better for sunny. And of course
depending on the time of day. But usually lots of birds to try in those
places.

I was at Point Lobos yesterday and totally frustrated with my old iphone

had a nesting Black Crowned Night Heron moving around on its nest, with
the afternoon sun backlighting her two beautiful blue eggs. A Spotted
Towhee perched in plain sight calling. A Raft of a dozen or so otters
just off Gibson Beach. Half grown baby Harbor Seals at their China Cove
nursery. Lots of Brants Cormorants and gulls out on the island. And
the usual bush birds. All on the Bird Rock Trail. The "parking lot
full" sign was out, but the place was almost empty.

Good hunting,

Thanks to those who replied to me. Apparently this is one of two Trumpeter Swans that were released there by the owners several years ago. The last eBird report was almost two years ago when both were still present; one has subsequently died.

Yesterday Martha Pallin submitted an eBird checklist from Spring Lakes Mobile Home Park in Scott's Valley that included an excellent series of photos of what she identified as a Mute Swan (https://ebird.org/checklist/S171749815). The photos looked to me more like a Tundra or Trumpeter Swan, some features seeming to favor one of those species and some the other. I went down there this morning and saw the bird. I did not learn anything new about its appearance, but it called a few times and the calls were rather trumpeting. I believe this is a Trumpeter Swan. Does anyone have any information about its origin or how long it has been there?

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Swan at Spring Lakes
If you look at the text update from an old ebird posting from 2016 :

"Not countable. Apparently the property of Spring Lakes. Not Mute Swans or Tundra Swans. My initial impression was that they were Trumpeters, but then changed my identification. Subsequently investigated by Alex Rinkert, who identified them as Trumpeters and also contacted the property office, to determine if they were the property of the park. The office indicated that they had purchased the birds. Photographed; photos to be uploaded later. Wings clipped? Recorded for informational purposes”.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] San Vincente Redwoods
Hi birders,

Yesterday, May 3rd, I spent about 2 and 1/2 hours following the
"hu'-mǐs" (a.k.a.: Great Horned Owl) trail, at the San Vicente Redwoods
<https://landtrustsantacruz.org/protected-areas/san-vicente-redwoods>.
Although I did not see any rarities, it was very pleasant to walk the
trail and see a number of woodland birds. The path was fairly easy to
walk. The birds were singing and performing a variety of breeding
related activities. Some of the highlights, included seeing and/or
hearing some species for the first time this year, including:

BLACK-THROATED GREY WARBLER

CASSIN'S VIREO

MACGILLIVRAY'S WARBLER

To be fair, I never saw the CASSIN'S VIREO, nor the MACGILLIVRAY'S
WARBLER, but was able to listen and record their calls and song, for an
extended period of time. The CASSIN'S VIREOs were fairly high up in the
canopy. The MACGILLIVRAY'S WARBLER was just out of view from the trail,
but much lower in brushier type habitat.

Here's the ebird list with meh, to poor documentary photos:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S171738746

I might try to add some recordings of the Cassin's and MacGillivray's
later.

Finally, thanks to David Fickle. He was one of the first, to tell me
about this great birding location some time back, and encourage me to go.

Good birding,

Pete Solé

Soquel, CA

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Possible Bald Eagle flying over east Morrissey
I spotted what was not a red tail nor likely vulture soaring in the patch of sky I can see from ‘Porch Station’ (my porch).

Large!
White head, white tail, dark brown wings with “fingers”. (Did I see yellow legs?)
The wings were not held out flat though, they were sort of bent at “elbow”.

I checked my field guides, and I don't see another raptor with quite those markings. Could it be a bald eagle??
I will be very excited if so, because I haven’t seen our local ones yet, nor have I ID’d one elsewhere since I started keeping life list.

It was headed toward the part of the sky where faint seagull sounds were detected. Could be coincidence, or lunch maybe.

Sincerely,

Julia v
