Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] banded raptor
Hi again, Bethany

I would not argue with the bird banding experts. However your hawk’s train (tail) is too short for a Cooper’s. From the third photo down, compare the tail length to primary tips then look at the Coop that was sent to you. All juvenile hawks are blessed with longer tail feathers in their first year. But to me, that Hawk looks more buteo than accipiter. I’d love to know for sure, but we may not.

I hope you continue to enjoy and get more photos of raptors.

Take care,

Melanie

Dear Bethany,

I've attached a photo of a juvenal Cooper's Hawk taken on 10/24/13. The
band looks similar to yours and  was identified by Chris Briggs of the
Golden Gate Raptor Observatory as one of their banded birds. You might
want to contact them, particularly if you can blow up the leg band photo.

Here are notes from the Santa Clara County Notebooks:

10/24/131 juv with bands; San Antonio Valley, SCL (WGB); Stoddard Ranch
entrance, GGRO bands, can’t read [Chris Briggs says that they started
banding them this year, 90 birds with green bands.In a 1/9/2014 e-mail,
Chris reports that the bird was banded on 10/19/13, so five days from GGRO.]

Hello,

Better late than never, I feel - my apologies for the lateness but life got in the way! On April 14th my husband noted a raptor across the street - he loves photography and knows I love birds, so he went to photograph it as I ran out with binoculars. My first thought was that it was a juvenile cooper’s hawk - but the tail stripes didn’t look quite right.

After it flew away and we were looking at the photos, we noticed that the legs were banded - green on the left and silver on the right. If any of you know of a raptor banding program, please pass this on to them. The address is 113 Navarra Drive in Scotts Valley; photos taken at 1:52-1:55pm

If anyone can tell me the type of hawk it is, that would be great too. (Not my strong suit…)

1 Male and 1 female PURPLE MARTIN seen close to a large dead tree at
Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve yesterday (4/23) at around 9:30 a.m. The

then flew off.

After a minute or two, the male flew from the large dead tree after the
female, calling.

We noticed a dead chick in the ANNA’S nest today. I gently removed it and
it was pretty desiccated so I think it’s been dead for a few days. It looks
like mom is still feeding a chick but I couldn’t see into the nest to
confirm this. (The dead chicks’ head was over the edge of the nest so I
could see it and remove it by the head.)

This morning there were three species of loons heading north over the ocean; most seemed to be RED-THROATED LOONS. About 15 ELEGANT TERNS were also there and two RED-NECKED PHALAROPES were on the water just outside the kelp line. I estimated about 200 PIGEON GUILLEMOTS between the closed beach and the Fern Grotto beach. An OSPREY was on the closed beach.

Just saw a PEREGRINE FALCON in the yard—it had snagged a bird—not sure what—and was chirping/calling while flying around with it. It lost the bird and then circled a bit more, probably trying to find it and then headed towards Watsonville.
A new yard bird for us.

Hi birders,

Had fun checking the bird activity around our Soquel neighborhood today.
Highlights included 1 visiting PEREGRINE FALCON, and possibly a second
checking things out. Heard lots of bird song including a persistent male
BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK, multiple DARK-EYED JUNCOS, an ORANGE CROWNED
WARBLER, and more. At one point when looking at a singing grosbeak in a
pine tree, I ended up with an ACORN WOODPECKER, a BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK
and a HOODED ORIOLE all in the same scope view. :)

Great article, thanks for sharing! Very, very important topic.

We are going to have a table emphasizing how important it is to support
shade grown coffee at the Natural Bridges Migratory Bird Day on May 11.
Alta coffee will be there with some pamphlets and samples of their shade
grown coffee. Is anybody interested/willing to work with me on developing
some easy to understand visuals based off of this article? (Poster or
display)

Subject: [MBBIRDS] loons now Westside SCZ and Wilder Ranch SP arrivals
Hi All,
I can see loons moving north now (9am, Wed) along West Cliff Dr. in Santa Cruz in moderate numbers. I have been checking every now and then the last couple weeks and haven’t seen this many near/from shore. Unfortunately, I can’t get out to give details, but maybe someone else can.

Also, many arrivals were along Engelsman Loop in Wilder Ranch SP over two walks in the last week. In particular, BLACK THROATED GRAY WARBLER was heard (and seen) in two spots near the top of the loop in oak woodland. Others present include (1) CASSIN’S VIREO, and well distributed WARBLING VIREO, PACIFIC SLOPE FLYCATCHER, BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK, as well as numerous WILSON’S WARBLER, ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER, among others. My impression is that singing TOWNSEND’S WARBLERS have decreased over the last week but singing YELLOW RUMPED WARBLERS can still be heard. Also, in the parking lot for Wilder Ranch SP at the entry kiosk, a SAVANAH SPARROW was singing. None of these (nor Grasshopper Sparrow) were heard in the upper areas of Engelsman.
Good Birding,
Kumaran Arul
Santa Cruz, CA

A pair of commons were in the Carmel River at Palo Corona Regional Park

the resident house wren, cooper's hawk, various red-tails, western
bluebirds, Yellowthroats, Wilson's warblers, hairy and Nuttall's
woodpeckers, and the rest of the daily crowd. No bobcats today,

I did not find any rarities at Quail Hollow C.P. this morning, but there was a nice mix of lingering winter birds and new spring arrivals. Lingers included Yellow-rumped Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and Golden-crowned Sparrow. New arrivals included Olive-sided Flycatcher, Warbling Vireo, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Yellow, Wilson's, and Orange-crowned Warblers.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] SBT COUNTY BIRDING
Howdy, MBB Birders,

LA GLORIA ROAD:
If you find yourself heading over to San Benito County area, both the birding and flowers are very good along La Gloria Road right now. I have not seen so much water on Gloria Road since 1998. There are now 8 ponds along the road and many of these are quite full. Birds typical of the oak woodlands can be found here. A male PHAINOPEPLA was guarding his patch of mistletoe berries, and a few LARK SPARROWS were on the roadside. Thirteen BAND-TAILED PIGEONS were closer to the summit and a FERRUGINOUS HAWK was hunting the grasslands at the summit. The wildflower show, right along the banks of the road, is very substantial. So far, this is the best variety of wildflowers I’ve seen in a 10 mile stretch. Keep in mind that the road is public, but all a lands on either side of the road are private properties. Please be respectful. While this road is usually a good place to find Lawrence’s Goldfinches, when there is so much water around, they do not concentrate nearby. Instead, look for them in fields of fiddleheads (Amsinkia). La Gloria Road is south of Paicines, and north of Pinnacles National Park. There is a road sign for it along Highway 25. It is just south of the Bear Valley CA Fire Station.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54808096 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54808096>
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54808302 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54808302>

SANTA ANA VALLEY ROAD:
Santa Ana Valley Road is very busy right now with foraging TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS, nesting WESTERN and CASSIN’S KINGBIRDS, LOGGERHEAD SHRIKES, and LAWRENCE’S GOLDFINCHES, to name a few. The Tricolored Blackbirds can be found near Red Dog Ranch in the fields of mixed mustard, mallow, and milk weed. Red Dog Ranch mailbox numbers are 4065 and 4067. Two pairs of Lawrence’s Goldfinches, a pair of Western Bluebirds, and a pair of Western Kingbirds are nesting in the solitary oak tree near the entrance road to the ranch. (Do not block the entrance.) The goldfinches fly back and forth from the dense field of fiddleheads to the oak tree. The Tricolored Blackbirds are not nesting along this section of Santa Ana Valley Road— yet. They may do so, though. The wildflowers are more limited in this valley, but there are some nice displays of goldfields, fiddleheads, and owl’s clover.

The GOLDEN EAGLE pair, Iolair and Aileen, continue in their corner of the valley. Last year, they attempted to nest on one of the large power towers. I worked with PG & E who came out and covered the 5000 v. lines. Nesting was not successful, however. Well, this year, they are thinking about moving to the next power tower done the line. Ugh!

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54817992 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54817992>

JOHN SMITH ROAD:
A colony of about 3000 TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS is incubating eggs (most likely) right now. They are nesting in dense milk thistle. The colony can be viewed from the roadside, though. The colony is silent. Foraging flocks head off in the direction of the dump (also along this road), or out to other areas of Santa Ana Valley. There is a chance to capture images of foraging flocks feeding amongst cattle, something that is rarely found elsewhere. Closer to the dump, there are small stands of milk thistle where smaller colonies may set up in the next couple of days. Do not disturb these birds in any way whatsoever.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54771749 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54771749>

PANOCHE VALLEY:
As Jane Orbuch reported, there are thousands of TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS at Panoche Valley. I haven’t been out to the valley lately, but plan to go soon to check on the status of these blackbirds. They will nest along Panoche Creek which now enjoys full protection by being in the Panoche Valley Preserve. The preserve manager is well aware of the nesting trikes and very supportive of their nesting requirements. It sounds as though trike flocks are roaming much of the valley at this time.

Happy Trails,

That’s great, but not what it stood for.

But I DO I admire the sleuthing and creativity of the interpretation!

SAID was originally going to be SATH, but then I remembered that SATH = Sage Thrasher, so I had to amend it.

So far, only one person has figured it out without major hints (congratulations to she who will be un-named and un-nicknamed!), and another got it with hints. But Specious And Preposterous Observation and Scurrilous And Illegitimate Descriptions deserves at least partial credit.

Hmm, SAPO is not in that list! I know! It is Specious And Preposterous
Observation! (Clay did say "I'm excited to *make* this SAPO."). And SAID
(as in "It's been preceded by numerous SAIDs") is clearly Scurrilous And
Illegitimate Descriptions.

Many of you are aware that the U.C Regents has approved aproject to develop the East Meadow (the great big meadow as you enter off HagarDrive) at UCSC.

Now that the project has approval by the Regents, a group ofactivists, The East Meadow Action Committee (EMAC), is taking the step to hireattorney’s to stop it.


 
Please read the attached letter and ways to contribute including a tax-deductibledonation to help pay for legal expenses to preserve this diverse and criticalhabitat.

Returning hooded oriole in my back yard - 5 days ago in Live Oak. Saw the male, didn't see a female but lots of calling back and forth.
If you have a chance to go to Carrizo Plain this week or weekend there are Meadowlarks everywhere nesting and calling in the fields of wildflowers which are stupendous.

I’m excited to make this SAPO, as it’s been preceded by numerous SAIDs, but it hasn’t confirmed the presence (just the probability) of an official SAPO.

SAPOs are not for everyone, but they’re a beautiful thing. Having a SAPO arrive on a fine wind and gossamer wings is a heavenly gift that brings a smile to my face

I hope all of you thrill in the sharing of my SAPO, and that you too, find your own SAPO and share it widely (and wildly!) with enthusiasm and passion!!

Subject: [MBBIRDS] FOS SAPO

Today marks my first SAPO of the spring season!!

I’m excited to make this SAPO, as it’s been preceded by numerous SAIDs, but it hasn’t confirmed the presence (just the probability) of an official SAPO.

SAPOs are not for everyone, but they’re a beautiful thing. Having a SAPO arrive on a fine wind and gossamer wings is a heavenly gift that brings a smile to my face

I hope all of you thrill in the sharing of my SAPO, and that you too, find your own SAPO and share it widely (and wildly!) with enthusiasm and passion!!

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Flock of Bonaparte's Gulls
Hi birders,

Around 5:15pm, we went looking for and dipped for the Brandt's Goose
previously reported at the intersection of Watsonville Slough and San
Andreas road. However, what caught our attention was a large flock, I
guestimate 75, BONAPARTE'S GULLS that circled over and even briefly
landed in the flooded field. Unfortunately, I was about 150 yards from
the car which had my camera. By the time I got back to the car, the
gulls were gone. Talking it over with Nancy, it seems like they headed
towards Harkins slough.

Ebird report from the evening:

Good birding,

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Baldwin Loop
Doing my big trek again for the BBA survey of block 7590 I found some
interesting birds this morning. One one of the upper terraces there was a
PEREGRINE FALCON sitting on a snag, and as I watched a bright yellow bird
flew by, which turned out to be a HOODED ORIOLE, a very odd location for
the latter.
There was a lone male TURKEY a bit further up the trail doing a full
display with tail spread.
I got one breeding confirmation, PACIFIC WREN carrying nesting material,
there is a population of them up in the far NE corner of the block.
At the west trail by the Baldwin Creek gorge there was a noisy, chattering
flock of 5 WHITE-THROATED SWIFTS flying eye level, nice to see them up
close and not 150 feet above you. There are plenty of good cliff sites up
there...

Subject: [MBBIRDS] San Benito County April 6, 2019
Hi, MBB Birders,

As Steve Rovell reported, the HARRIS’S SPARROW continued at Wilma’s home, yesterday. I think Steve saw it in the morning. I saw it between 11:40 to 12:20. It comes in for the bird seed briefly, flying off after a minute or so. The sparrow tends to perch in a red leafed tree before dropping to the ground. Best bet is to have Wilma scatter some seed around. Then, wait on the porch for it to show up.

Also yesterday, April 6:
At San Justo Reservoir, which is closed to the public, I found a male BLACK SCOTER.
This represents a first record for San Benito County. Surprised me, for sure!

After viewing the Black Scoter for a while, I drove to the end of the dam, and found a RED-NECKED GREBE.
This is the fourth county record for Red-necked Grebe and the first one since 1998. The other records were located at: Bitterwater Dry Lake, San Felipe Lake, and San Justo Reservoir in past years.

It is interesting that 1998 was a record rainfall year for San Benito County. It was an El Nino year. We have had excellent rainfall this year, but there is not as much water in the reservoirs as 1998— close, but not quite as much water. San Felipe Lake is high this year, but not as high as 98’. Paicines Reservoir is high, but, again, not as high as 98’. Also, water flow into Paicines is controlled by the county, from Hernandez Reservoir at the southern end of the county. The high water levels mean that there is precious little shorebird habitat (right now).

Later in the day, a large long-bearded billy goat with very large horns was blocking the road along Lover’s Lane. I slowly tried to pass him and he rammed my car, twice!

In the evening, I watched a pair of NORTHERN HARRIERS building a nest. The female was carrying fine grasses to the nest site while the male stood guard.

San Justo Reservoir closed many years ago due to the infestation of zebra mussels. The various agencies have been working to remove the mussels. It is gated and locked. There is no way to enter the reservoir at this time. It will reopen to the public at some point. I report the scoter and grebe in case other folks might take a look at other reservoirs. Who knows what’s out there?

Happy Trails,

Subject: [MBBIRDS] recent breeding activity
The past few days I went atlasing on the north coast and around Seabright.
The breeding season is well underway with many of the residents building
nests or tending to ones already with eggs or young.



Nearly every pair of BUSHTITS I've come across recently have been nest
building. Nests were found at Sand Hill Bluff, Laguna Road, Three Mile
Beach, and Yellow Bank Beach. The promontory just south of Yellow Bank Beach
had an impressive concentration of breeding SAVANNAH SPARROWS in the sodden
coastal prairie. This morning I counted twelve males singing in a stretch of
no more than 250 meters. No more than a few seconds of silence would pass
before a male would burst into song. I did find one nest with young, but I
think this was early compared to where the others are at in their breeding
effort. Nearby in the coastal scrub there was a COMMON YELLOWTHROAT carrying
nest material and a SONG SPARROW nest with young. On the sea stack nearby a
CANADA GOOSE continues incubating a nest, previously found by Simon.



BRANDT'S and PELAGIC CORMORANTS are building nests at many of their colonies
on the coast. At Natural Bridges SB the Brandt's have chosen the natural
bridge as their colony site this year instead of the ledge below the parking
lot.



At Tyrrell Park in Seabright a female LESSER GOLDFINCH continues incubating
a nest, as does an AMERICAN CROW. At Seabright SB a KILLDEER nest with eggs
has managed to survive ten days; I thought it would have been depredated by
now with all the cats and rats I see in that area. There is still a
wintering flock of SNOWY PLOVERS on the beach-36 were still present on April
4-and I have yet to see any breeding activity.

Hi birders,

In the last few weeks we've noticed that migrant breeders have arrived
in our neighborhood. We've heard and seen our FOS:

BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS - Routinely, a pair seems to be visiting our feeders.

PACIFIC SLOPE FLYCATCHERS - Repeated calls last few weeks. One
individual seen in our yard.

HOODED ORIOLES - We saw a bright adult male for the first time today,
although I think I've been hearing calls the last week.

Finally, perhaps because we are putting out so much seed on the ground
for the squirels, ahem, I meant birds, the GOLDEN CROWNED SPARROWS seem
to be hanging around longer than I remember. They are molting into their
breeding plumage while practicing their plaintive song.

Happy spring birding,

We have a very small feeding station (we live in a mobilehome park). Doves cannot access the feeders, hanging in trees, due to lack of room for landing and take off. So mostly we feed LBBs and the occasional titmouse.

What, besides millet, safflower and wheat does anyone recommend? The birds always leave the milo untouched.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] HARRIS'S SPARROW: ACCESS GRANTED
Howdy, MBB Birders,

The homeowner where the HARRIS’S SPARROW resides has graciously granted permission for birders to visit with the following conditions:

TIMES: 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
PARKING: Park in the field opposite the home, and NOT in front of her home.
WHERE TO GO: Facing the house, walk around the right side and go to the very large porch at the back of the house. Do NOT knock on the front door. Sit down in one of the chairs on the porch.
NO SMOKING OF ANY SORT
NO NOISE, NO PHISHING, NO PLAYING OF SONGS, ETC.
SEED BUCKET: Please leave a few dollars in the seed bucket/bin. This sparrow is coming to the seed!

Please be considerate and respectful of the homeowner, Wilma Vermilyer. She also hosted the Painted Bunting at her feeders in 2016.

LOCATION: 165 Chittenden Road which is also known as Highway 129, not far off Highway 101. Please use the Highway 129 entrance. Heading west toward Watsonville on Highway 129, the entrance to her driveway is on your right. There is a small wooden, brown sign, “Vermilyer” at the entrance. The short, dirt entrance road is lined with old farm implements. Park at the edge of the field and not in front of her home. It is a lot more difficult to find the entrance, if traveling east on Highway 129 (and, a more dangerous turn). Oddly, Google maps shows an entrance from a private side road, but this is not to be used.

Wilma thinks that the HARRIS’S SPARROW showed up about 30 March. She didn’t know what it was until she sent me a photo of it.

eBIRD:
The name of the eBird Hot Spot is:

stakeout Harris’s Sparrow, San Benito County (2019-private residence), San Benito County, California, US
https://ebird.org/hotspot/L4142628 <https://ebird.org/hotspot/L4142628>

My eBird checklist from yesterday: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54563876 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54563876>

As I announced earlier, this is only the second record of Harris’s Sparrow for San Benito County. Wilma is a delightful person. She will invite every one of you to “come anytime”— however, that does not mean you should do that! It is just her nature to be good-hearted.

Please leave a few bucks for the seed.
Thank you, in advance,

Subject: [MBBIRDS] April Birding Email for Santa Cruz County
For those interested, here is the birding email for Santa Cruz County for the month of April. I hope many of you find it useful. Happy birding!

April 2019

It's April, spring is in full bloom, and migrants are arriving every day to Santa Cruz County. During this month there will be a major migratory movement of many species, on land and at sea.

On land, Pacific-slope Flycatchers have already made their appearance, and they will be followed this month by Western Wood-Pewees, Ash-throated and Olive-sided flycatchers. Swainson's Thrushes will also return in the next few weeks. Most swallow species have already arrived, but watch for Vaux's Swifts which will be arriving in April. Purple Martins, usually arriving in late March, should be at Loma Prieta and maybe Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve this month. Also be on the lookout for Bank Swallows at some of the coastal lagoons.

Among warblers, while Orange-crowned and Wilson's are present in greater numbers, be on the lookout this month for Yellow Warblers, and more Black-throated Gray and Hermit Warblers. Yellow-rumped and Townsend's Warblers will remain with us in April, now sporting their vibrant breeding plumage.

As for sparrows, Grasshopper and Chipping Sparrows will be singing from grassland at Wilder Ranch State Park and UCSC, but by the end of the month most of the Lincoln's, Fox, White-throated and wintering “crowned” Sparrows will be gone for the summer.

One of the best places to watch migrating landbirds this month is at Loma Prieta. There you can often find Lazuli Bunting, Western Tanagers, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, large numbers of warblers and Rufous Hummingbirds migrating. Black-chinned Sparrows may return to breed in recently burned chaparral.

Scoping out to sea along the coast this month you can see thousands of migrating Pacific Loons as well as many Red-throated and Common Loons heading up the coast. Flocks of Brant, Surf Scoter, phalaropes, terns, shearwaters, Alcids, gulls (especially Bonaparte's), jaegers, and others will also be on the move. Some of the best places to seawatch are along the north coast at El Jarro Point and turnouts near Scott's Creek and Waddell Beach. In south county, scoping out to sea from Pelican Point at Pajaro Dunes can be productive as well.

Migrating shorebirds such as Semipalmated Plover, Dunlin, and Western Sandpiper will be increasing this month. Look for them mostly in south county at Pajaro Dunes along lower Watsonville Slough and at College Lake. Along the rocky shoreline watch for Wandering Tattlers, larger groups of Black Turnstones and colorful Surfbirds in breeding plumage. Look for them at places like Black Point, along West Cliff Drive, Terrace Point and at Wilder Ranch. Overhead, Caspian Terns will become more numerous and at the end of the month there should be some Elegant Terns joining them. There is also a chance of finding a Franklin's Gull in some of the plowed fields along the north coast this month and at College Lake if the water levels are favorable, and at the Care Park water treatment plant.

While most of our wintering duck and gulls will have left by the end of April, you may start seeing Canada Geese with young goslings showing up in places of the county where they breed. Brandt’s Cormorants already have eggs in some nests and now that Pigeon Guillemots have arrived, look for them to begin nesting along the rocky cliffs and under the Santa Cruz Wharf. In fact, April should find many species in the midst of breeding as spring continues. Watching for specific behaviors of breeding such as courtship rituals, carrying nesting material and nest building, and carrying food for a mate or young adds to the excitement of bird watching this time of year. To make these breeding observations count toward a larger effort, consider becoming involved with field work for the Santa Cruz County Breeding Bird Atlas II. Contact Alex Rinkert at <arinkert12...> if you are interested.

April is a very exciting month to be birding in the county with much to see every time out in the field. I wish you good birding!

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Chipping Sparrow???
While sitting by the window looking onto my deck, a bird landed 4 feet from me (outside). I got a good but very brief look with the bird slightly below me and facing me. The head had a rufous crown was what I saw most distinctly. The sides of the bird, from my angle looked “sparrow like”. The size and shape also. I can only find two sparrows with a crown like that-Chipping Sparrow and Rufous Crowned Sparrow. In photos and drawings in various guides, there seems to be a slight line down the middle of the crown. I saw only a solid crown. The color of the crown was of a Chipping sparrow in breeding season. I don’t think there was a white line above the eye, I remember just gray… but it was a very quick look!

Any thoughts?

Needless to say, I’m still watching.

Larry

Subject: [MBBIRDS] SBT: HARRIS'S SPARROW
Howdy, MBB Birders,

A friend of mine sent me an image of a sparrow yesterday. She said she could not find it in her field guide! It was a decent image of a HARRIS’S SPARROW.

Today, April 3, 2019, Jim Lomax met up with me and we went to look for it. We saw it and I got a blurry image of this HARRIS’S SPARROW. It is obviously, on private property. I am trying to secure permission for birders to visit to look for the sparrow. If that comes through, I’ll post the details, hopefully before this weekend.

This represents only the second record for San Benito County. The first Harris’s Sparrow was found by on a Panoche Valley Christmas Bird Count several years ago.

Spring migrants are pouring through the county. Recent arrivals include: Black-headed Grosbeak, Rufous and Costa’s Hummingbirds, Cassin’s and Warbling Vireos, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Nashville Warbler, Chipping and Grasshopper Sparrows.

Happy Trails,

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday late afternoon, a stunning male Black-headed Grosbeak enjoyed our
feeders. Also a nearly complete alternate plumaged male American Goldfinch
came to the feeders. (A seldom used verb: to plumage. I plumage, you
plumage, he plumaged.)

The day before I gasped when I saw a mature male Hooded Oriole at our
hummer feeder. Grape jelly went out right away, but I have not seen him. No
hyperbole - those guys literally make me gasp.

Both of our nest boxes are in use. Mrs. Titmouse is incubating and so is
Mrs. Chickadee. What fun! These are firsts here at home in Capitola!

Happy spring,
Lisa

The grass is only ankle-high, but the grasshopper sparrows have started

This morning I repeated my 6 mile loop round the Baldwin Creek trails for
the BBA block 7590 survey. One confirmation was found, an Orange-Crowned
Warbler gathering lichen for her nest. Of interest though was a sighting of
a pair of WHITE-THROATED SWIFTS foraging with a flock of VIOLET-GREEN
SWALLOWS on the Western part of the trail that overlooks cliffs. Compared
to the same walk 2 weeks ago the main differences were the widespread newly
arrived PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS and WILSON'S WARBLERS.

We have a second ANNA’S HUMMINGBIRD nesting! This nest is located on the
top of our motion dectecter lights in the carport. Like the other nest
there is little clearance above it so it is very safe from predators. From
what I’ve read it’s quite possibly the same bird that nested a little
earlier in the season on our Christmas lights. She has been named Twinkle.

Two first of season birds off my deck: Rufous Hummingbird and a Pacific-slope Flycatcher.

A Cooper’s Hawk has set up shop in my yard as well as a Sharpie. We can see the Sharpie taking swipes at our feeders when we review our cameras.

Happy Spring,

Of local Santa Cruz / Soquel / Capitola interest, there is currently a male Pileated Woodpecker at Anna Jean Cummings park in Soquel. The bird is in the Monterey pines between the high school and park’s parking lot. It is across from the bathrooms.



The bird was first heard around 9:10 from loud drumming; initially thought to be from people working in the high schools track-and field equipment area … of which there were no people. Later, bird was vocalizing loudly – heard throughout park.



Happy Birding,

Native Animal Rescue urges you to act now on this important bill.

There is a great bill before the California Assembly now restricting
anticoagulant rodent poisons and

WE JUST FOUND OUT THAT WE NEED SUPPORT LETTERS BY TOMORROW, FRIDAY 5 PM!!

A sample email is at the end of this email.

HOWEVER, EVEN IF YOU MISS THE DEADLINE, PLEASE SEND IT IN anyway.
It will still be counted as pro or con, but not included in the staff
report analysis.

There is a special website that must be used to submit letters -
https://calegislation.lc.ca.gov/Advocates/

Slightly tricky part: After filling out the register form, you will be
emailed a temporary password, which you use to create a new password.
THEN you can submit your input by either 1) uploading the letter OR 2) copy
and pasting into the comment box.

It is Assembly bill AB 1788 with letters going to the WPW Committee (Water

MUST put some kind of letterhead here with address!

Statement in Support of AB 1788 (California Ecosystems Protection Act)



Dear Honorable Members of the California Assembly Water, Parks, and
Wildlife Committee:



XXXXX is writing in support of AB 1788, introduced by Assemblymember
Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica). The bill would ban second generation
anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) in California—the most toxic,
“one-feeding kills” poisons—as well as first generation anticoagulants
(FGARs) on state-owned properties. These products are having widespread
impacts on our state’s ecosystems, in particular, California’s treasured
wildlife, as well as creating unnecessary risk to the health and safety of
our state’s children and household pets.



Since the California Department of Pesticide Regulation pulled second
generation anticoagulants from consumer shelves in July 2014, there has
been no decrease in the rate of wildlife poisoning from these products.
The continued use of rodenticides by licensed pest control applicators
still allows rodents to consume rodenticides and then poison non-target
wildlife (and even pets) who consume the rodents themselves. In fact,
based on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s own studies, from
2014 to 2018, an estimated 70 to 90% of various tested wildlife species in
the state were found to have SGARs in their systems. Simply put, the
evidence shows that a consumer ban on SGARs alone is insufficient to
protect California’s ecosystems and further steps must be taken. AB 1788
would ensure that use of these harmful toxins are prohibited full-stop in
the State of California, while still leaving licensed applicators and
consumers with ample tools to address rodent infestations.



Additionally, AB 1788 would also help the state eliminate the use of
dangerous poisons on state properties, many of which are home to wildlife,
through the additional prohibition on the use of FGARs on state-owned
properties. While SGARs have higher toxicity than prior generations, both
first and second generation anticoagulants are responsible for wildlife
deaths and “sublethal” impacts that affect the ability of wildlife to
survive and thrive. Northern spotted owls, San Joaquin kit foxes, and
Pacific fishers are threatened species that are being endangered by these
poisons. New scientific studies published in 2018 by UC Davis, the
California Academy of Sciences, and others show that 70 percent of Northern
spotted owls have been contaminated with anticoagulant rodenticides. A
separate 2018 study by UCLA and others found that these poisons are
affecting genes that regulate bobcat immune systems.



In addition to harming wildlife, anticoagulants rodenticides pose an
unreasonable risk to children who may accidentally ingest these highly
toxic poisons. Between 1999 and 2009, the American Association of Poison
Control Centers received reports of an average of 17,000 human exposures to
rodenticides each year, with 85% of these exposures, (i.e., approximately
15,000 per year), occurring to children less than 6 years of age.



AB 1788 allows for common sense controls on anticoagulant rodenticides by
only banning the most toxic rodenticides throughout the state, while
providing exemptions for agricultural activities and true public health
emergencies. The scientific evidence is clear that anticoagulant
rodenticides – particularly SGARs – have a massive impact on California’s
ecosystems and the state must act now to prevent the continued degradation
of our wildlife and environment.



California has the opportunity to continue to be a world leader on
environmental protection and animal welfare through the passage of AB
1788. XXXXX urges you to support AB 1788, which will protect the health of
our state’s natural ecosystems, and all of the wildlife in the food web.



Thank you for your attention to this critical issue.





Sincerely,



FOR ORGANIZATIONS - THIS LETTER MUST BE SIGNED!

For individuals, signing is optional.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] SCBC Porter-Sesnon walk yesterday
Hello Birders,

The rain abated and allowed for a very pleasant bird walk yesterday
morning.

I was so pleased to hear my FOS Wilson's Warblers singing! It was a good
small songbird morning with Orange-crowned, Townsend's, and Yelow-rumped
warblers also singing and enjoying eucalyptus blossoms. Oak Titmice and
Bewick's Wrens, Pygmy Nuthatches, Chestnut-backed Chickadees, Spotted
Towhees and Purple Finches added their quirky voices to the chorus. There
were still a handful of Ruby-crowned Kinglets around as well. Robins and
Acorn Woodpeckers were numerous, but the Golden-crowned Sparrows sparse.
The Robins were vocal, but I did not hear any grosbeaks yet. One female
Downy and one male Hairy Woodpecker were typically industrious. Band-tailed
Pigeons flew back and forth across the field. Raptors were not abundant,
with only a pair of Red-tailed Hawks and a calling Red-shouldered Hawk. I
spotted one male Allen's Hummingbird and there were competing male Anna's
Hummingbirds in the open coastal prairie. The Scrub Jays positively relish
the area. One pair of the 2 pairs of Bushtits I spotted were gathering
spider webs for nesting material.

eBird list: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S54257455

There were no rarities but hearing our returning old friends again was the
highlight for me!

Happy birding!
- Lisa
