Subject: [MBBIRDS] Feeding activity on Elkhorn Slough
Hundreds of birds on the slough, concurrent with the morning rising tide.
Visible from my vantage point above Kirby Park. Pelicans, egrets,
cormorants, peeps, etc.
This is the 2nd time I've seen it in the last 3 days.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Banded Snowy Plover and Reporting Banded Birds
I dug up this up from March 12, 2020. I am sending it on to the link you
provided.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/handsoff/51605521158/in/dateposted-public/

This bird was one of three I photographed (and reported to eBird) on that
date, over a year and a half ago!

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Banded Snowy Plover and Reporting Banded Birds
Hi birders,

First, big thanks to all who responded. A few points to summarize the
email I got.

1. Please be respectful of the plovers. It's great to get banding
information but don't disturb them, especially during breeding season.

2. To report banded Snowy Plovers in our area, *send an email to:
<snpl_bandreporting...> *
This is the preferred method to report bands on Snowy Plovers in our area.

3. *Now for the best part*, a scientist from Point Blue, responded to
the banding report with a very nice email. She wrote: "Thank you for
your sighting of go:gy (green over orange left, green over yellow right)
on the mudflat near Jetty Road on 17 October. This male was originally
banded as a chick on 12 March 2016 at Moss Landing Wildlife Area (on the
other side of Highway 1 from the mudflats). He breeds in the local area."

So I'll end this thread by writing, great to see a local dude at Jetty Road!

Fun birding,

Pete Sole'
Soquel, CA

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Recent birds
On Friday I observed a PALM WARBLER at the Southwest corner of Antonelli
pond. On Sunday I found a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER at Neary Lagoon,.it was at
the end of the entrance ramp in the willows near the boardwalk entrance. I
also heard a MARSH WREN further along the path heading Southeast, a species
that used to be present at Neary but has been mostly absent in recent
years.I also saw a flock of CEDAR WAXWINGS, many of our winter visitors are
here in good numbers now including FOX SPARROWS, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS,
both GOLDEN and WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS and of course TOWNSENDS and
YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS. This morning I saw a big flock of BAND-TAILED
PIGEONS at Natural Bridges, a species more common on the coast in the
winter.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Banded Snowy Plover and Reporting Banded Birds
Hi all,

Just wanted to follow up on this post to remind everyone that although we
encourage you to report banded Snowy Plovers, it's also important not to
disturb them by trying to read bands. This can be best accomplished by
giving them plenty of space and keeping dogs leashed (if they are allowed
at all). They are especially sensitive to disturbance during their breeding
season, March 1-September 15. Remember to stay away from closed nesting
areas so as not to unknowingly flush an adult off of their nest, and if you
see a plover brood, give them extra space to prevent separating the
attending male from the chicks. Chicks rely upon males for thermoregulation
and to help keep them safe from predators, especially during their first
couple of weeks. If you see a single adult vocalizing or doing a broken
wing display March-September, it is more than likely because it has a nest
or chicks nearby and you are too close.

During the non-breeding season Snowy Plovers are less sensitive to
disturbance, often forming large roosting flocks at a greater number of
locations compared to the breeding season. However, it is still important
not to disturb them, as during this time of year they are trying to
replenish their fat reserves and get ready for migration (to areas ranging
from Southern Washington to the tip of Baja CA) and the next breeding
season.

Thanks again to all for reporting your sightings and helping Snowy Plovers
to recover in Monterey Bay and across the coast!

Thanks Pete for bringing up the importance of reporting banded birds! For
most species, reporting to the BBL is the recommended reporting method, but
as Joseph correctly pointed out, for Snowy Plovers
snpl_bandreporting@googlegroups com is the preferred method to report
bands. That email will go directly to all Snowy Plover banders across the
Pacific Coast from Oregon through Baja California, and as Joseph also
pointed out, we are all quick to respond with the bird's history. We report

Arthur, if you have any old photos of banded Snowy Plovers, please do send
them to that email along with the date, location, and total # of plovers
observed (if you happen to have that). This type of data is always useful
to help us better understand migration and survival of Snowy Plovers.

Thanks again!

<snpl_bandreporting...>

This goes directly to researchers who can respond quickly.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Banded Snowy Plover and Reporting Banded Birds
Hi birders,

This is more of a public service announcement than a bird report per say.

For those that don't know, Point Blue is a science organization that
originally started as the Point Reyes Bird Observatory or PRBO. One of
the research projects that Point Blue runs, is banding and tracking
Western Snowy Plovers along the the Monterey Bay. Per the US Fish and
Wildlife Service the Snowy Plover is:

*Official Status: **Threatened*, the Pacific Coast population of the
western snowy plover is federally listed under the Endangered Species
Act of 1973 as threatened. The western snowy plover is a Bird Species of
Special Concern in California.

Source: https://www.fws.gov/arcata/es/birds/WSP/plover.html

On Sunday around 1pm, I photographed a banded SNOWY PLOVER. If you see
such a banded bird, I encourage you to photograph it as best you can,
get the band information, and to report it at the USGS bird banding lab,
at the following link:

https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBL/bblretrv/

It's easy to do, takes less than 10 minutes and helps scientists in the
US and Canada track birds. Keep in mind that reporting rates for banded
birds are very low. I've heard of numbers below 1% for most species, and
rarely above 5% for others. That means that out of 100 birds banded,
scientists may get reports on only 1 to 5 birds.

On a happier note, when you report, you might get an email back a week
or so later, from the scientists tracking the banded species. They might
tell you a little about the individual you saw. Like where it hatched,
or where it was banded, what sex it is, etc.

To learn more about the Point Blue Snowy Plover project you can take a
look at this page:

https://www.pointblue.org/our-work/shorelines/snowy-plover-shorelines-research-page/

And finally, if you want to see a purposely, over exposed, image of the
banded plover from Sunday, see the ebird report:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S96296263

Fun birding, and I encourage you to report banded birds,

Pete Sole'

Soquel, CA

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Re: White Wagtail
Joseph,

I looked up images of M. a. ocularis and their was an image on eBird that looked similar. But, then again, that is way above my pay grade. But, the image closest to it in Sibley's under his examples of a Siberian White Wagtail is a 1st winter female, which looks closest to it to me. He points out that it has two distinct white wingbars, rather than extensive white coverts as his example of the 1st winter, female Black-backed. But, I'll leave that mess to the experts. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

Thanks,

Gary Martindale

I could be wrong but these photos look to me more like M. a. ocularis, a
different race from the bird that wintered last year which I think was M.
a. lugens.

Hi Folks,

The photos I've attached are out of focus, but it documents what I saw.
When I looked at the photos to see if it was a White Wagtail and noticed

Liam might be right, that this might be last year's bird. I may have

I saw a white wagtail at Swanton pond this morning. It landed long enough to see and get one poor photo. I entered it on eBird, and will post the photo when I get home. I tried to relocate the bird in the pond area, but was unable to relocate it. Keep your eyes open, because there is one in the county.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Cackling Goose (Richardson's) at Antonelli's Pond and Clay-colored Sparrow continuing at the Homeless Garden
This morning I enjoyed 80 geese flying north over my property in Soquel. I didn’t have my binos handy,   However,  I did have my phone and used the Merlin audio Id app to confirm these as Cackling Geese. So triangulating from the last two posts I suspect it’s accurate!

Hi All,

Alvaro Jaramillo responded to my post on the Cackling Goose, suggesting that I have misidentified the goose as a Richardson's. You will see he mention that an juvenile Aleutian would not necessarily have developed a neck ring yet.

It would make more sense, since a Richardson's would likely be wintering along the Gulf Coast, whereas an Aleutian would be expected here.

Sorry if I got everybody excited! It just goes to show you that even good guides (Sibley's and AllAboutBirds.org) can lead you astray. There's always something new to learn.

Thanks to Alvaro for chiming in.

I think it is much more likely that this is a juvenile Aleutian than a “Richardson’s” which is an Eastern population and much less likely here. On the other hand, Aleutians are the expected coastal Cackling Goose in central and northern California.

Hi Gary

This Cackling Goose is a juvenile, as it has very evenly worn coverts, and the feathers themselves are small. Adults have larger coverts and more square cut at their tips. Juveniles usually do not have a white neck ring, although this develops in the first winter. I think it is much more likely that this is a juvenile Aleutian than a “Richardson’s” which is an Eastern population and much less likely here.

*TUESDAY, October 12, 2021: Raptor Identification with Brian Sullivan*
Autumn and Winter are the time to enjoy Monterey’s common and less expected
raptor species. But, differences in species’ appearance resulting from age,
color morph, feather wear, flight style, etc, can create much confusion for
novice and expert birders alike. Join raptor authority and field guide
author Brian Sullivan for an in-depth look at how to improve your
identification skills and enter Monterey’s raptor season with a deeper
appreciation for the subtle beauty of these magnificent birds.

Doors open at 700. Talk to begin at 730 at the PG Museum of Natural
History. {lease be masked and vaxxed.}

Just heard and then saw (2:05pm) about 150 high flying Geese (I think Cackling) flying over westside Santa Cruz. Nice break from work.

I also stopped by Moon Glow Dairy yesterday afternoon and saw the previously reported Yellow-Green Vireo near the pond (see ebird reports). Looks like it was seen today as well.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Clay-colored Sparrow at Swanton Pond today
Another Spizella sparrow was at the pond at the Swanton Berry Farm around 9:45 this morning. This was on the levee on the west side of the pond, towards the north end. This sparrow confused me, but I believe it was a drab CLAY-COLORED SPARROW. The lores were paler than I would expect from a Chipping Sparrow. Though the back of the nape appears very streaked, the sides of the gray nape do not seem streaked. The auriculars seem to be too dark and warm of a brown to be a Brewer's Sparrow, and the median crown stripe seems too well-defined. Some mediocre photos are in my eBird list:

eBird Checklist - 10 Oct 2021 - Swanton Pond and vicinity - 30 species (+1 other taxa)<https://ebird.org/checklist/S95949772>

There was also a juvenile GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE at the pond, at least a couple NORTHERN PINTAILS, a dowitcher sp., and several TRICOLORED BLACKBIRDS.

Golden-winged warbler hunting notes (reflecting far more failures than

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Big Sit October 9th at New Brighton State Beach
Dear Fellow Birders:
The Big Sit competition for this year will be held on Saturday October 9th at New Brighton State Beach from 8 am till 5 pm. Our count circle will be at the top of the trail that goes from the Day Use parking lot to the campground, (or right below campsite 73). 
 
You don't need to commit for the whole day, people can come and go as the spirit moves them, but if your spirit could move you from 8 am till noon, when most species are most active, it would be best. 
 
The entrance fee is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors above 62 (yes, very magnanimous), and $5 if you are disabled. Please do not drive into the campground but park in the Day Use Parking Lot. At the very end of that parking lot there are some wooden steps descending to the beach, and right above that a trail ascends to the campground and comes out at campsite 73. Our count circle is located at the top of this trail at the very edge of the bluffs, in the shade of a pine forest, and about 40 feet down from the campsite. If you are disabled and cannot walk up this trail (it's very short) then park in the overflow parking lot and walk in through the campground. 
 
Food:
As long promised, and to sweeten your mouths, I will make a pot of Indian rice pudding and if I feel especially ambitious also some Baba Ghannouj.
 
IF YOU CAN BRING SOME FOOD TO SHARE THAT WOULD BE VERY CONVIVIAL.
AND THREE OTHER THINGS: A light folding table to lay the food out on. paper plates and plastic forks. And a small step ladder that we can climb on to scan for shearwaters and Jaegers. The rules of the Big Sit do not allow us to stray outside our circle but the sky's the limit for any movement up within our circle. And, as in the past, the circle will be interpreted liberally, and not anally. 
 
If people can email me to give me some idea of whether they are planning to participate it would be great. And if you can bring either the table, the small step ladder, or the plates please also let me know.
 
If I have forgotten some crucial detail just email me. 
 
Ah, our team name is The Jaegers, and our patron deities should entertain us all day as they harass the terns below us. Last year this was a constantly evolving spectacle with both Parasitics and Pomarines.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Natural Bridges
During an otherwise fairly quiet morning at NB, I found a group of WESTERN
BLUEBIRDS. This is the first time in 17 years of birding at Natural Bridges
that I have seen Western Bluebirds there. Perhaps this is an indication of
how the population of this species has recovered in Santa Cruz County over
the last decade. Other than that there were the usual suspects including a
couple of bright TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS and a few RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS.

Hi all,
Just to clear something up, I was not the person who found this bird at the
homeless garden. I was put on to it by a couple of birders who knew me, but
unfortunately I cannot remember their names. They also reported a
Lawrence's Goldfinch in the same area, but sadly I did not see that bird.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Bullock's Oriole, back for another season...
Hi birders,

For the second year in a row, we've had a BULLOCK'S ORIOLE stop by
during fall migration. As I birded the neighborhood this morning, I
thought, well, I should take a quick look at our own feeders from the
distance. Hum, there appeared to be a larger bird than normal, with a
yellow tail in one of the feeders. Must be the sun angle I thought
shading my eyes. But intrigued, I walked about 50 yards closer to get a
better angle to see the feeder. Aha, there was a large, yellow orange
oriole on one of the feeders! Checking field marks carefully:

* Yellow orange face with a black eye-line.. Check
* Black bib covering chin, neck and chest... Check
* Extensive white on black wings... Check.
* Bill longish, slight downward curve, with dull metallic blue lower
mandible... Check
* Camera on hand to take documentary picture ... Nope. I broke the
first rule of nature photography: bring camera.

I watched the oriole for a bit, and then it flew off. Looking through
eBird records last year, saw we had reported a single Bullock's Oriole
on the feeders irregularly from Oct. 18th to Nov. 20th. Have to wonder
if it's the same bird.

In other neighborhood migration news, the GOLDEN CROWNED SPARROWS and
WHITE CROWNED SPARROWS are arriving, settling in for the fall and
winter. We've had WESTERN TANAGERs come by and sample Roger's Red grapes
as well, but not today, and fewer than in previous years. One last
interesting flyby, was a COMMON MERGANSER flying in the distance, I'm
guessing now, above Soquel Creek.

Full ebird list from these parts: https://ebird.org/checklist/S95539729

Enjoy the migration,

Pete Sole'

Soquel, CA

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Brewer's Sparrow Photos
Hi folks,

I am responding to Abram's request to post some photos of what I believe was the BRSP. Initially, when I reported to MBB the BRSP, three of us were on the sparrow, and an out-of-county birder confidently stated, "That's our bird!" Since I haven't seen BRSP in nonbreeding plumage, I thought I should check my photos. Good thing I did, because it turned out "our bird" was a pale, 1st winter CHSP. I will attach two photos of "our bird". One of the photos shows a grayish rump, ruling out a BRSP.

Here are also four photos of what I believe is the BRSP. The field marks I believe confirm the sparrow as a BRSP are:
* Weak, yet complete whitish eyeline.
* Weak contrasting face markings
* Lack of bold eyeline extending to the bill.
* Streaked nape
Even after looking at my photos and checking them against Sibley's and All About Birds, I've learned identifying similar sparrows can be quite challenging. I'm no expert and welcome any feedback.

Thanks,

Gary Martindale

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Clay-Colored Sparrowstill at Homeless Garden
The bird found first by Phil Brown was seen about iin the small trees along the edge next to the farm stand. I had been there maybe 10 minutes when a small sparrow flew in. I had a quick look, snapped exactly one photo and it flew off, not sure where but in the garden still.

Never do I have this kind of luck!

Around 9:30 there were at least 4 Spizella sparrows in The community garden
on Lighthouse Ave. A bunch of people with nice cameras took a bunch of
photos. I am looking forward to someone posting pics and seeing what
everyone thinks for IDs.

Not long ago I asked MBB members about information on products to prevent bird collisions with glass. I had several helpful replies. My thanks.

Since then I found a link to an American Bird Conservancy website with a comprehensive guide for preventing bird collisions and the many products available. Since it is migration time, these solutions are especially important so I thought I’d pass it along for those who might be interested.

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Brewer's Sparrow at Lighthouse Community Garden

The Lighthouse Community Garden in Santa Cruz, along Lighthouse Avenue north of Lighthouse Field State Beach (and also accessible from Phelan Ct.) is often a good place to find Spizella sparrows this time of year, with a Clay-colored and some Chippings having been reported there recently.

I went there this afternoon, around 1:15pm, and found what I believe to be a BREWER'S SPARROW in the southern portion of the garden. It posed on a stake for a bit then flew away off to the north. About 20 minutes later, I spotted 2 Spizellas foraging low below the western fence. I was able to spot the dark eye-line continuing through to the lores on one CHIPPING SPARROW. After reviewing my photos when I got home, I realized that the second bird was also the Brewer's due to the pales lores, nice eye-ring, and streaked nape.

Not a lot of birds in this garden really, but lots of butterflies to catch your attention as you scan for movement.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] hummer
That was such a great analogy, Heidi! It also sounded like a great poem, so
I put It into haiku form:

Elegant Woman
Rolling around in sprinklers
the Hummingbird’s twin

In a more normal vein, we usually see our hummingbirds take a bath when the
sprinkler comes on for a couple of minutes and they never drink out of our
water dish, but this year both adult and immature hummingbirds have been
landing on the water dish and drinking directly from there and also taking
baths from the rim or even jumping (Whatever you would call the Hummingbird
version of that) directly into the dish itself. I’ve never seen it before,
and have been wondering if anyone else has been noticing different water
behaviors in this drought time.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] hummer
Nice comment Heidi!

Hummingbirds are so magical. One time I had an extra submersible pump left
lying around, so I set it up in a container in the back yard so that it
shot a stream of water straight up in the air. Almost instantly a
hummingbird came over and seemed to be trying to figure it out. First it
hovered just over the top of the stream, and took a couple test sips. Then
it flew up and down along the stream and circled around it. It was
clearly fascinated by the fact that water was flowing upward!

Our highlight was a HAWAIIAN PETREL that came straight toward our boat and
passed close by before flying off.

It's interesting how often it seems that rarities are predated on, or at
least harassed by, local birds. I wonder if it's an artifact of all the

9-26-21
Wanted to clarify for some people. The Black and white Warbler at Natural Bridges was first found at around 10 am on Delaware Ave in the eucalyptus trees along the street. It associated with White-breasted Nuthatch & Chickadees. About an hour later David E. re-found it along the small trail walking from Delaware towards eucalyptus grove that backs-up behind the mobile home park. It was closer toward the “T” split at Moore Creek trail where it goes towards the boardwalk & left back toward the Delaware entrance.
We had another rare bird in this grove a few years back, can’t remember which one it was. Hope this helps. 36.9538124, -122.0596804
Tried to post in the field-that didn’t work out to well.

I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I was on the edge of Moore Creek trail at Natural Bridges State Park, right along Delaware Ave. It was not on the Delaware entrance but the trail that is closer to the mobile homes that cuts down into the boardwalk.

The warbler had been first right along Delaware Ave in the eucalyptus trees associated with White-breasted Nuthatch & Chickadees before 10 am. After 11:50 am it moved farther into the eucalyptus grove, more toward the boardwalk & farther away from Delaware. It was almost at the “T” intersection where Moore Creek splits. 36.9538124, -122.0596804

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Two spots open for pelagic tomorrow - Monterey
Hello,

We just got a couple of cancellations, anyone keen on going out tomorrow
(Monday) on the Pt. Sur Clipper out of Monterey, let me know ($170). This
trip Weather looks good, low wind in morning, increasing in the afternoon.
We have had good trips out of Morro Bay (Red-footed Booby, lots of Sabine's,
jaegers/skua, Black Tern), and Half Moon Bay (many Scripp's and 2 Guadalupe
Murrelets, lots of Sabine's, jaegers etc); both of these trips had Bluefin
tuna jumping! Every day is different, so you never know what will be out
there. Let me know (<alvaro...>

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Savanah Sparrow or Vesper Sparrow?
Hi all,

I photographed a sparrow at the Homeless Garden this morning. At first I thought it might be a SASP, but it lacked the yellow wash on the lores, and the crown and back seem more strongly patterned crown and back than what I was expecting. As well, the eye line on SASPs are usually bolder extending all the way to the eye. The eye line and the auriculars seem more framed like a VESP as shown in the worn adult image in Sibley's. The bill seems small for a SASP. Lastly, there is a slight peak at the underside of the tail on one photo and a view from the back side that a slight whitish margin on the edges of the tail feathers.

These lead me to lean towards a VESP, but I am not 100% confident in my ID since worn feathers can be deceiving.

I would love anyone to chime in and share your thoughts.

Thanks,

Gary Martindale

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Loma Prieta
This morning Alex Rinkert and I spent some time along Loma Prieta. It was
quite warm by 7 o'clock and an interesting east wind developed despite the
foggy conditions down along the coast. Overall, migration appeared slow
last night into the morning with few birds moving south. Interestingly, the
few migrants seen today were coming up the draws from the south.

Birds of note included a BLACK-THROATED SPARROW at the lower saddle. It was
first seen on the Santa Cruz side then flew over to Santa Clara County. We
didn't see it stick, but it certainly could be around. It was seen on
either side of the road here: 37.099363,-121.856566.

Additionally, we found two separate THICK-BILLED FOX SPARROWS along Mt.
Madonna Rd. below the large parking lot at the junction of Loma Prieta Ave.
X Summit Rd.

Hi Larry-

I like the window fritting (little dots) option as well. This website
has a good DIY product that I've installed with success:
https://www.featherfriendly.com/residential

I haven't been able to find the original ABC bird tape online for a
while, but another option is to use window markers (like the "congrats
class of 2021!" on cars) and put the blue painters tape on the window to
make straight lines and simply paint the lines on.

There is also the "zen curtain" option. It's essentially para-chord
strings hanging down in front of the offending window. They blow
gracefully in the wind and create a visual barrier for the birds. I
think they look pretty cool. https://abcbirds.org/acopian-birdsavers/

Thanks for working to make your windows safe! I've always been told that
even if you have only seen a window strike causality once or twice,
there have likely been more that were scavenged before you saw them.
Better to be safe than sorry.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Lesser Sand-Plover ID help
Oh, I don't know. I've kind of enjoyed some of the rare birds that have
dropped in on us, and even stuck around for several days or longer. It's
hard to imagine a bird is going to be sticking around after someone nets
him, measures him, weighs him, and then dumps him unceremoniously back
where he was before being shanghaied. That's not to say that there is no
value in scientific research. But since you asked, other than the selfish
desire to view these rarities for myself, I believe that with the
precarious state of the world today it is extremely important that people
stop taking nature for granted. I don't think there is an intellectual
equivalent to being out there with the birds and the bees and the flowers
and trees. We could do worse than to show a little love for the natural
world that we live in. So I am not disheartened when I hear someone show
concern for the well being of another living thing. Are they being overly
protective? Perhaps. Would the world be better off if more people felt
the same way? Who could doubt it?

...and so in the end, the bird lived, but the planet died. Ha, ha, just
wondering if we need yet another new addition to the dystopian future genre!

I don’t understand the opposition to trapping, measuring & weighing, and releasing the bird. This happens every day at multiple bird observatories across the world, who hold the proper permit, as did those who trapped and measured the Greater Sandpiper.

Thanks Jeff and Alexander,

I guess I was so relieved at the first statement of failure to capture that
I stopped reading. Interesting how birding ethics and laws have changed.
Anyone trying to capture and measure a migrant today would risk arrest and
fines, if not assault. Of course any bird that met John James Audubon got
shot.

Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] Lesser Sand-Plover ID help
If you look at the bottom of the 2001 report, they did capture and measure
the bird, confirming that it was a Greater.

From the observations I made and the photos I was able to get (a few of
which showed an extended wing, I believe it is a Lesser. The bill is
definitely different from the Greater in both length and shape, the wing
stripe is much less prominent, the leg color is darker, the uppers are much
grayer. All of which points to the Lesser.

Reading the report from the 2001 Greater Sand-Plover in Bolinas it seems
that not everyone was in agreement that there have been any sightings on

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Warbling Vireo?
I believe it was a WARBLING VIREO I saw in the magnolia tree today. (east side santa cruz)
Seen from below, about the size of a chickadee. Short, notched tail, creamy underparts. Soft brownish grayish colors on top. Soft creamy stripes around eye. dark legs. Maybe a few scant dark streaks on its breast, but I wouldn’t call it streaked from that.
It went from branch to branch with about 30 seconds in between.

The photos for warbling vireo on All About Birds match closely to what I remember, and is the closest I can find in peterson book as well.

I’ll keep an eye out for it to see if I can get a more distinct view.

Eric,
The small bill relative to head size, and the darker legs, suggest LESP.
The bill is also somewhat blunter and slightly bulging near the tip.

I'm sure that individual variation of these species could cause confusion
where their ranges overlap, but if you look at the distribution maps you
will see that Greater Sand-Plover does not extend to Eastern Siberia and
would be much less likely to find its way to the CA coast.

I'm also trusting that much more experienced birders have looked at this
guy, but your question was helpful. It certainly made me take a closer look.

Hi,

I was able to view the LESP yesterday and got some reasonable photos. Since I wasn’t familiar with this species, I did some Googling, and I found some articles about differentiating between Lesser and Greater Sand-Plovers. Looking at my photos, I’m afraid I can’t narrow it down to LESP since there seems to be overlap between these two species among their various subspecies. Can anybody point out the salient features which make this a Lesser?

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Crowned sparrows
Once again we have reached that part of the fall when the crowned sparrows are about to return. Your first Golden-crowned Sparrow should land in your backyard sometime this coming week! Time to buy some extra seed!

Good birding,

Subject: [MBBIRDS] Grace's Warbler
Good morning birders,

I refound the warbler yesterday afternoon after about an hour searching
with Earl and Nico in the area closer to the Slough where it had flown from
the big acacia by Gold's Gym minutes before I arrived.

We had gone back to the parking lot across from Gold's when I saw it fly
across the street from the big acacia by Gold's! It went to a little acacia
directly east, very close to where we were standing! It gave us some great
views in that little tree, despite increasing wind.

Eventually it flew east toward Struve Slough again. Everyone dispersed but
I stayed to see if it would come back again. And it did! I spotted 2 small
yellow birds fly to the big acacia by Gold's, and Grace's was one of them!
I got one more good look and then I couldn't find it.

So, clearly, it favors that tree; if it didn't migrate last night and you
want to try for it, go to that tree first.

Thank you David Sidle for finding it there and staying to help other
birders!

Good luck!
Lisa
