Subject: [northbaybirds] White-winged Scoters - Rodeo Lagoon (Marin Headands) - Oct. 22, 2018


David Wiechers and I were delighted to see a group of four White-winged Scoters on Rodeo Lagoon this morning (all 1st winter/females types), a species that seems to be getting increasingly difficult to connect with in Southern Marin, so it was great to actually see them on the main lagoon as opposed to the more typical encounter of a distant view of one flying by well offshore! The only other Scoter on the main lagoon today was an adult male Surf Scoter so they should be easy to pick out. Also new in this morning was our first Bufflehead of the 2018 Fall - an adult male.

Other highlights today included a brief visit by a Dunlin, 2 Long-billed Dowitchers, a Spotted Sandpiper, a male House Sparrow (very scarce out here!), and continuing Palm Warblers (2), the latter favoring the rough ground/grassy area adjoining the north east corner of the main lagoon opposite Building/Shed T1111. We did not connect with any Swamp Sparrows today, but they are probably still around and have been seen in the marsh vegetation and muddy shoreline in this north east corner of the main lagoon over the last few days.

Good birding!

Subject: [northbaybirds] Very Local Interest - FOS White-throated Sparrow in Corte Madera, Marin County
Though there have already been quite a few reports from up and down the coast, just to share that my FOS White-throated Sparrow arrived this morning, 18 Oct. 2018, at my yard feeders on the 400 block of Montecito Ave. in Corte Madera.  Very little else unusual to report.

Thanks.

Subject: [northbaybirds] Common Ring Plover and other species
Today at 1:30 PM Janet Bodle and I observed the Common Ring Plover in the same area it has been for the last several days.
Also present was a flock of American Pipits which includes a Red-throated Pipit.
The Pipit flock was seen near the foot bridge looking south and also on the water edge a few hundred feet west of the foot bridge.
Earlier the Burrowing Owl was still present in the field south of the trail.
Also on our return trip back we had a light phase Swainson's Hawk near the parking lot.
The weather was perfect temperature in the parking lot was 78 degrees at 1 PM.

The Common Ringed Plover was easily viewed today from my arrival at 10:00 until 11:00. Eric Lichtwardt and I were the only two birders during that time, although others were arriving as I left.

The bird was along the crest of the sandy berm that separates the lagoon from the beach. It’s about where you would imagine that the lagoon will breach later this winter. The bird was with the Snowy Plovers - and acted as though he had little to no fear of humans. I’d say this bird doesn’t have any experience with humans. I was able to sit and watch quietly from about 30’ to my heart’s content. That said, this particular spot gets a lot of weekend foot traffic, and even if the bird sticks around for a while I expect that it will eventually find a quieter place - so get there soon while it’s still resting out in the open.

Also seen - 6 Pectoral Sandpipers in with a large mixed flock of shorebirds. 1 Red Knot. 1 flyover Red-throated Pipit with some American Pipits. Colin Meusel (on his way out) informed me of an American Bittern on the north pond as you walk in.

I will have several extremely detailed photos of the Common Ringed Plover on my eBird report and my flickr feed https://www.flickr.com/photos/amaizlish/ in about ten minutes or so.

Subject: Re: [northbaybirds] Common Ringed Plover Oct 14 -- Update -- seen all day, still there at dusk
Hi Dave and all,

The Common Ringed Plover was seen from <8:44 AM (when I arrived with Roger Harshaw) until >6:45 PM (when I left it with Michael Park).

In the morning until ~13:45 it was found roosting with > 45 Snowy Plovers at the sand berm separating Abbotts Lagoon from the ocean ( 38.119066, -122.958823 ). The bird hung out in a line of flotsam including dry kelp and sticks.  Over 20 people viewed the bird from this location. The groups separated and viewed it from the S side from the dunes and from the N side along the ridge of the berm from the logs.  As numerous people came to walk on the beach we asked them not to flush the bird. All were cooperative and enjoyed hearing about it! Finally when the groups coalesced S of the bird we were unable to keep a couple from flushing the plover, which flew directly E and hung out loosely with other shorebirds along the W half of the N shore of Abbotts Lagoon. It stayed there from ~13:45 until after 6 when it flew across the lagoon neck and stayed on the shore there for 15 minutes before it flew back and gave us a great views walking right up to us here ( 38.118703, -122.955489 ) while we were packing to leave!

Overall it was a 6! plover day, with lots of other shorebirds around the lagoon.  My eBird details are here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49204699and the following list for the W, S and E shores of the lagoon also have some interesting sightings including one Red-throated Pipit calling and briefly seen: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49204720. Stay tuned for photos from the day as soon as I sort out a glitch downloading them.

Apparently only few reports to ebird and none to NBB or Calbirds as far as I can tell today. If they have been posted I apologize. So just to make it known - the Common Ringed Plover was all alone at the NW corner of Abbott's Lagoon at Pt Reyes NS in Marin County today Oct 14 at least until 12:30pm. It was on the 'ridge' of the sand between the lagoon and ocean, as viewed from  the lagoon, sitting in a small pile of debris, approx 100 yds away.

Hi Lisa,

I just finished reading an article in the American Birding Assoc. magazine about flickers- there can be so many ‘different’ intergrades between red-shafted and yellow-shafted. I am guessing that it is probably one of those. Gilded Flickers are desert birds and can’t be sure, but I bet they don’t wander much.

https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Gilded_Flicker might be helpful. Others might have more to tell you. Birds of North America online “Although few data are available, the Gilded Flicker is likely nonmigratory. In Baja California, there were no differences in plumage and morphometrics for Gilded Flickers measured in summer and winter, despite substantial geographic variation among breeding populations, suggesting no seasonal movement between geographic regions (Short 1965b).”

Enjoy the birds!

Subject: [northbaybirds] Red-Naped Sapsucker in Forestville today
I observed a Red-Naped Sapsucker today at a private residence in Forestville in Pocket Canyon area of Hwy 116. This property has several apple trees that have been visited by sapsuckers for many years and I have been anticipating the return of a Red-Breasted Sapsucker here for the last few weeks. When I arrived today at around 10 am I was not surprised to hear drumming from the apple tree area of the yard and a little while later saw what I assumed to be a Red-Breasted Sapsucker fly out from one of the trees. About an hour later, as I was doing some jobs around the yard a sapsucker landed just a few feet from me on a ginkgo tree that also has sapsucker wells. I saw it long enough (no bins needed) to know it was not a red-breasted and so I quickly deployed my smartphone camera and got good enough photos to determine this was most likely a female Red-Naped Sapsucker. 

I noticed no red wash to the sides of head or breast, bold black and white pattern on the face, red nape/crown and throat and *different* look to streaks on back and throughout. Close inspection of the photo where the face is shown reveals white chin with red throat below, indicating a female bird.

Yes.  It arrived six minutes ahead of schedule at 10:24 on top of the berm between the lagoon and the beach.  Stayed there for an hour or so, then started flying around the north end of the lagoon.  When it arrived it was associating with Snowy Plovers and Sanderlings rather than Semi Plovers
Good birding.

Subject: Re: [northbaybirds] Common Ringed Plover seen today -10/12?
Yes.  It arrived six minutes ahead of schedule at 10:24 on top of the berm between the lagoon and the beach.  Stayed there for an hour or so, then started flying around the north end of the lagoon.  When it arrived it was associating with Snowy Plovers and Sanderlings rather than Semi Plovers
Good birding.

This afternoon at Hudeman Slough, Miles and I observed three White-faced Ibises and at least two Pectoral Sandpipers in the large pond. There may have been two more Pectorals, but we weren't able to tell if the original two just relocated to a different side of the pond.

Subject: [northbaybirds] Nicasio Reservoir update.
Hi NBBers,

For the past week there has been a build up American Pipits at Nicasio Reservoir – I counted about 50 today. They favor the NE corner mudflats and the very recently plowed field across Nicasio Valley Road from the reservoir at mile marker 0.5. Today this same plowed field had approximately 25 Horned Larks foraging as well. There was a single Tricolored Blackbird in with Brewer’s and Red-winged Blackbirds in that same field. A spotting scope is needed to view the more distant parts of the field.

A few shorebirds were at the reservoir today and yesterday, again mostly in the proximity of the NE corner: 4 Wilson’s Snipe, 3 juvenile Long-billed Dowitchers, 9 Greater Yellowlegs, one Spotted Sandpiper, and a few Least Sandpipers.

The two Greater White-fronted Geese Daniel Edelstein reported a couple days ago have been there for about a week and were joined today by two more.

Raptors sighted during the last week or so:
Cooper’s Hawk
Osprey
White-tailed Kite
Northern Harrier
Red-shouldered Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
Ferruginous Hawk
American Kestrel
Peregrine Falcon

Good birding,
Bob Battagin
Woodacre

Subject: [NBB] Plover clarification
Just clarifying that we saw and photographed the Common Ringed-plover TODAY (Oct. 10, 2018). I think that before today the last (and only) report of it had been Mark's sighting on Monday, so it's apparently stuck around for a few days and may stick longer...

Subject: [NBB] Abbotts Lagoon COMMON RINGED-PLOVER -- more photos
Adrian Hinkle and I followed up on Mark Sawyer's report of an apparent COMMON RINGED-PLOVER, and got excellent close views and photos of the plover. We first found the bird roosting with SNOWY and SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS on the high sand between the lagoon and the beach. After we had observed it for some time there, it picked up and flew across to the north side of the main lagoon, where we were able to find it again roosting calmly with other plovers on the sand. It eventually made its way down to the edge of the lagoon and began foraging. 
This was the only plover that appeared to be in breeding plumage, with bright jet-black face pattern and breast-band. The very broad black breast-band, bold white supercilium, black loral stripe reaching the gape, lack of a yellow orbital ring, rather thin and pointed bill, and apparently web-less or nearly web-less toes seem to make this a solid COMMON RINGED-PLOVER. (However, I'll of course defer to differing expert opinions if any arise...)

Happy and successful plover-chasing to you all! And congratulations to Mark on this spectacular find.

Subject: [NBB] Point Reyes today. 10/10/2018
Since I see no one else reported ,I want to give a brief report for the point today.
Weather seemed good with a high overcast and light breeze.
Bird migrants were a bit scarce though, with a obvious western element to them.
Highlights were :
A Hammond's Flycatcher , " Western "Type Flycatcher, Swainson's Thrush , several Townsend's Warbler, a peppering of Yellow rumped Warblers and two Western Tanagers at the Fish Docks.


Nuniz Ranch had several Varied Thrush , a Swainson's Thrush and Common Yellowthroat.


Mendoza had a lot ( 30) of Yellow rumped Warblers and one Yellow Warbler .


Bumped into Keith Hanson and he had a interesting bunting ( we are thinking Laz) at the fish docks and a Nashville Warbler at Nuniz.
Also Saw Mary Ann Fleet and she had several Varied Thrush at Drakes Beach.


All in all not a epic day on the Point but pleasant and good to see birds out there even on the slow days. Hopefully the next few days will be better.


Oh and I also wanted to report I had a young plumaged Northern Saw-whet Owl in a undisclosed location at one of the patches out at Bodega Bay in the daytime on October 8, 2018 . I believe this bird to be a migrant as the location was not habitat I would expect to see one in. But there is excellent habitat just a few miles inland from there.


Best

Subject: [NBB] Blackpoll and Palm Warblers - Rodeo Lagoon 10/10/18



There was a decent overnight fall of migrants at Rodeo Lagoon (Marin Headlands) today and a circuit of the main lagoon produced a 1st winter Blackpoll Warbler (my 200th species for Rodeo Lagoon this year!) in willows and cypresses midway along Lagoon Trail on the south side of the main lagoon near the large cypress (on its own), and 2 Palm Warblers together in willows on the northern side of the main lagoon, just east of the Picnic Tables.

Good numbers of Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warblers and White-crowned Sparrows were present almost everywhere with smaller numbers of expected western fall migrants including Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Golden-crowned Sparrows. I also managed to connect with my first Golden-crowned Kinglet at the lagoon this Fall.

On the lagoon itself, single Northern Pintail and Ring-necked Duck (male) we new in today and at least two Wilson's Snipe continue.

Checklist online at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49102595

Good birding!

If you chase this bird the bird was viewed on north side of the lagoon with a plover flock of about 75 birds. It was the only bird in breeding plumage and thus stood out.

Subject: [NBB] Muir Beach warblers
I birded the willow/alder along Redwood Creek at Muir Beach this afternoon/evening. IT. WAS. COLD. But even with fog blowing sideways in my face, the warbler action was really impressive. A big flock of warblers near the horse corral at the intersection of Pacific Way (the road that leads to the beach) and Hwy 1 included a TENNESSEE WARBLER as well as TOWNSEND'S, BLACK-THROATED GRAYS, and YELLOW-RUMPEDS. Another flock along the trail that leads to Green Gulch Farm included two NASHVILLE WARBLERS, another or the same TENNESSEE, and two ORANGE-CROWNED, as well as the other three species seen in the other flock. 
One of the Nashvilles was a bright female-type bird with extensive yellow on the underparts and green on the upperparts, which did no or very little tail-bobbing, suggesting that it was likely an Eastern Nashville. (Eastern Nashville is a potential future split, and probably not particularly closely related to our western 'Calaveras' Nashville Warblers, which in all respects except color seem to more closely resemble Virginia's Warbler.) The other Nashville only put in a very brief appearance and I wasn't able to see anything suggestive of one "sub"species or the other.

Subject: [NBB] VIRGINIA WARBLER in my yard today
Greetings birders

At around 11:30 this morning I noticed a very loud, very warbler-like “chip” call coming from a rose bush in my yard that has been a popular spot with sparrows and towhees but not a usual spot to see warblers at this time of year... so I went in for a look.

I observed a VIRGINIA’S WARBLER in the rose bush. Gray head, back and tail, bold eyering, bright yellow undertail coverts, light yellow wash on breast. I guess this to be a first year bird.

It proceeded to be quite cooperative for the next few hours, providing good looks for a small group of locals which I quickly summoned after getting a few photos with my phone through my binoculars, which can be seen on my ebird report from earlier today. This bird showed well around our gardens and near my home; it had the tendencies of a bird in unfamiliar surroundings bounding back and forth from the rose bush over to the gardens and even to my front porch where it was fought off by a territorial Anna’s hummingbird that felt it was too close to the feeders.

We watched as it made its way around the property that I live on for the next few hours. It was a joy to observe this lost bird with a host of far more experienced birders than myself, and a great afternoon that I will never forget.

Subject: Re: [NBB] Butterfly Migration! - Marin Headlands
Yesterday after the very strong north winds died down there were absolutely hundreds of California Tortoiseshells flying over Hawk Hill. Looking through binoculars at a flying raptor, the foreground was often filled with butterflies and dragonflies! Pretty spectacular!

Other butterflies present included Pipeline Swallowtails, Monarchs, Ladies, Blues of some kind, Orange Sulfurs, and Red Admirals, but not in vast numbers like the Tortoiseshells we were seeing.

A large number of raptors blew by the hill in the heavy winds- I think the GGRO counted 742 sightings. Interesting birds included a Juvenile Swanson’s hawk, 3 Broad-wings, and a Golden Eagle.

(The birding was good on this trip but the seabirds were so gorged, they were not flying).

Subject: [NBB] MacGillivray's Warbler @ Drake's Beach, Etc., Et Al....
Enjoyed an amazing weather day on the Point today, with balmy temps and glorious sunshine in the company of a another birder (from Rochester, NY).

Best highlights are noted at the following ebird checklist:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49067049 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49067049>

…including:


1 female Black Scoter Melanitta americanaRemove Species <https://ebird..org/view/checklist/S49067049?share=true#>
One female in the company of four female and one male Surf Scoter ~500' from shore off Drake's Beach

1
female or hatch year MacGillivray's Warbler Geothlypis tolmieiRemove Species <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49067049?share=true#>
1 female or hatch year first heard with its call note, then seen for a couple of minutes in heavy brush/vegetation 50' away from the statue/monument as your back is facing it.

Thanks and kudos to a birder named Kurt (whose last name I did not obtain); when we met him, I confirmed the presence of the Blue-winged Teal mentioned below….and
it was great of him to alert me to the aforementioned warbler species that I
did NOT see it on our earlier visit to this spot.

In addition, other highlights:

- 2 female Blue-winged Teal on the pond adjacent to the Drake’s Beach parking lot.

- 2 Pacific Loon in non-breeding plumage on the ocean, ~750’ from the shore

- 2 Red-throated Loon in non-breeding plumage on the ocean, ~550’ from the shore.

Subject: [NBB] RROS/Alvaro's Adventures joint Blodega Bay pelagic Sunday
NiBBers,


Though the offshore forecast was ominous for this past weekend (after the customary beautiful weather the week before), on the advice of Captain Rick Powers of the New Sea Angler we decided that "nothing ventured, nothing gained." The near-shore forecast for Sunday was for 10-20 knot winds with a long-period WNW swell of up to 12 feet, which in Captain Power's 65-foot craft was doable.


Though the swells were impressive, the winds were moderate until we reached Bodega Canyon our initial target, 25 miles out, where they peaked at a brisk 20 knots. The captain decided to head back to port directly, rather than continue south to the Cordell Banks, as that would entail fighting the afternoon winds on the return. We spent the extra hour surveying the nearshore, where we all got excellent looks at a Marbled Murrelet, a confiding swimming Common Tern, and a high plumaged Clark's Grebe.


Offshore the birds were few and not particularly confiding. Highlights include several nice passes by South Polar Skuas, Pomarine Jaegers, and a single late Long-tailed. A good number of albatross enjoyed the high winds, but all were Black-footed. Also noted, Sooty and Pink-footed Shearwaters and several Northern Fulmars, and, besides the usual Common Murres, a fair showing of Rhinoceros and Cassin's Auklets, a few Red Phalaropes, and a single Ashy Storm-Petrel. We also had a brief sighting by a few on the boat of what was likely a Manx Shearwater. Pacific White-sided Dolphins joined us for a time and a few Humpback Whales wagged their tails at us.

Today, my Merritt College (Oakland) class and I enjoyed a beautiful day, with one light morph adult SWAINSON’S HAWK a highlight….and noted at the following
ebird checklist #:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49004694 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49004694>

My comments about this sighting at the above checklist #:

Light morph adult; dark remiges (on trailing edge of wing); dark primary feather wing tips; dark upper chest; pointed wings; heading south quickly approximately
300' above the road; excellent 10-second view, but not enough time for me to grab my camera and capture a photo. I speculate that it was probably
a migrant individual and NOT among the population that remains for the non-breeding season in the Valley area.

The continuing RED-EYED VIREO found this morning by R. DiGaudio at the Inverness Tennis Club was seen well by many.

As we pulled up on Mount Vsion Road, a group of young birders had just seen the presumed resident BLACK VULTURE flying over the area surrounding the tennis club. The bird circled around for approximately 10 minutes and was seen well off and on.

Photos of both will be included in my eBird checklist later.

RED-EYED VIREO this morning, in the alders along Vision Rd near tennis club.. It was foraging among a large mixed flock of mostly Townsend’s and Black-throated Gray Warblers, and a few chickadees. The flock was busy and hectic, easily could’ve missed a few other goodies in the mix.

NiBBers.


We had a great day at the headlands yesterday, 10 AM to 2 PM, with a crew led by Teresa and Miles Tuffli, plus Brook and Orion O'Connor, Steve Corey, Deb X [didn't catch the last name], and Gene and Nancy Hunn (who arrived late at 11:40). Teresa's totals for raptors only were as follows (check her e-bird post for photos). Warm, mostly sunny, with a light NW breeze.


Turkey Vulture 117, [Osprey 1 near the Russian River mouth], White-tailed Kite 8, Northern Harrier 7, Sharp-shinned Hawk 44, Cooper's Hawk 23, small accipiter sp. 10, Red-shouldered Hawk 6, Red-tailed Hawk 51, Ferruginous Hawk 1, American Kestrel 17, Merlin 2, Peregrine Falcon 2.


The Broad-winged came directly at us (at approximately 12:45), looking almost like a Peregrine in coasting mode, then banked and circled overhead, a small, compact buteo showing clean white underparts with a crisp black trailing edge and narrow dark leading edge. The tail lacked the contrastive bands of an adult, the upperparts very evenly dark brown with a hooded effect on the head. We did not notice any broken feathers as Dan Nelson described on the bird he saw about 90 minutes later, so probably a second migrant.

Subject: [NBB] Bay Hill Rd. - 10/5
Hi Birders,There were a few raptors moving Friday (10/5) at the Bay Hill Rd. Raptor Lookout, particularly in the afternoon when light N.W. breeze became a little more vigorous. At least 6 Sharp-shinned Hawks, 5-6 Cooper's Hawk, plus Ferruginous Hawk were noted, among the usual resident stuff.   At 2:04 PM, a calling fly-by LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCH perked up the afternoon, heading up the canyon then off to the East.A few minutes later at 2:21 I picked up on a distant, incoming BROAD-WINGED HAWK, though it was closer to Coleman Valley Rd. than my location.   I kept on it, and at 2:24 it crossed over Bay Hill Rd. approximately 150 yds. W. of the lookout location (which is about 100 yds. W. of the roads' summit). Then it turned and followed the road E. toward me, circling several times and seeming to orient toward the summit. That is when I got nice overhead views and great photos with the 300mm lens. It appeared to be a sub-adult, light-morph, but likely a first-year bird IMHO.  A few retained juv. outer rectrices were observed, along with quite a few adult central rectrices, - though somewhat duller than the stark black-and-white banding seen on typical mature adult.  Unusual was that this "shaka" Broad-wing had at least one bent, broken 2nd Primary feather on its' left wingtip,  imparting a raptorriffic "hang loose" sign when viewed from below.  Our friends at GGRO would likely observe this anomaly if they happento see this bird.. maybe tomorrow at the Marin Headlands (?)  (?)Other photos revealed that this "lost" feather appeared broken, pointed straight up to the sky.
Happy Weekend Birding,~ Dan Nelson, Sonoma Co.

I got great views of the PAINTED REDSTART at Drakes Beach this morning (Oct.. 4)... What an awesome bird... thanks Steve Tracey for the great find and quick report!
It was a good day elsewhere on the Point too, with another (though much less exciting) apparently new arrival from last night being a TENNESSEE WARBLER at Fish Docks. A male WILSON’S WARBLER of one of the eastern subspecies (pileolata or pusilla) was also there, and has apparently been there at least since yesterday according to Adrian Hinkle. The MAGNOLIA WARBLER was still hanging around in the pines too.
Late in the afternoon, a stop at the RCA trees yielded the continuing AMERICAN REDSTART, bringing my total up to 18 warbler species seen this week on Pt. Reyes!

Hi Birders,This morning while checking Russian Gulch, N. of Jenner, highlights I saw:Nashville Warbler (2), Black-throated Gray Warbler, CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER (1) Cassin's Vireo (2), Warbling Vireo, Hutton's Vireo, plus many arriving Hermit Thrushesand Fox Sparrows.   The Chestnut-sided Warbler had very bright chestnut on its' silvery-gray sides.
Many Tricolored Blackbirds are still around the cattle pens just E. of Bridgehaven (Hwy 1 at Russian River)but I could not refind yesterday's Yellow-headed Blackbird.  At Bodega Bay, Black-throated Gray Warblers (2) remained at Owl Canyon, and the Blue-gray Gnatcatchers (2)were seen together as I walked toward the Marine Lab entrance.
As Peter mentioned Monday, I did have a calling BOBOLINK circling around overhead  Monday 10/1 overthe pond at Campbell Cove, but it was a non-visual detection and has not been heard or refound since.
Good Birding,~ Dan Nelson , Sonoma Co.

Hi Cynthia,

You are probably seeing males but not noticing them. They do not achieve the bright yellow until later in winter when the fresh basic plumage they are in now begins wears down.

In early fall they are similar to the females.

Since around Sept. 20th I have had an influx of FEMALE American Goldfinches at my feeder platform. I have not seen any males (while I’ve been looking anyway) within the substantial numbers of females.

Location is off 5th Street West near West MacArthur in Sonoma.

Just wondering why that may be. Any ideas?

Upon arriving at the Fish Docks, I spotted a Blue-footed Booby with cormorants on the distant rock to the south of the southernmost dock. Presumably it's the same bird reported on Sunday. Unfortunately, it disappeared and couldn't be refound off the Fish Docks or at Sunday's location, Chimney Rock. Also at the Fish Docks were the continuing waterthrush, Blackburnian Warbler, and Magnolia Warbler, a couple Western Tanagers, several Hermit and Swainson's Thrushes, and a number of "western" warblers including Nashville, Palm, Wilson's, and MacGillivay's for a 12-warbler start to the day.


Nunes Ranch had 20+ Swainson's Thrushes, a bright Magnolia Warbler, and a Nashville Warbler. I had several Ruby-crowned Kinglets at every stop, despite none on Sunday when I was out here. Yellow-rump numbers are on the rise too.


Mendoza Ranch had a Blackpoll Warbler and even more Swainson's Thrushes - at least 45 - along with some Hermit Thrushes, a MacGillivray's Warbler, and several tanagers. "Junior Mendoza" had a Cassin's Vireo and many Swainson's Thrushes. Not sure how unusual the thrush numbers are, but clearly it was a good night for them. Dozens were flying over Berkeley when I left at little after 6am, and a couple came in off the ocean at Chimney Rock at about 9am.



That's it for now - unfortunately couldn't spend the whole day out there. Nothing much was going on at the field that had Red-throated Pipit a few days ago.


Good birding,

Best was inthe pines at Fish Docks with continuing Blackburnian and Magnolia topping thebill, MacGillivray's, Nashville and a gray-headed Orange-crowned on backup.There was another Magnolia at Nunes and a Blackpoll at Mendoza. ManyWhite-fronteds passing through at multiple sites, scads of Catharus thrushes at Nunes and Mendoza.

In addition to what David Wimpfheimer wrote yesterday, when I drove out a bit before 2 PM, there was a flock of 15-20 Greater White-fronted Geese at the Mendoza Ranch. The flock was between the house and what used to be known as the Mendoza Schoolhouse. They were on the left side of the road while driving out.

Subject: [NBB] Blackburnian Warbler at the Fish Docks
This afternoon I saw the continuing BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER at the Fish Docks in Point Reyes National Seashore. It was in the pines south of the residence. Some visiting birders mentioned that they also had the continuing MAGNOLIA WARBLER there.  Other birders reported a BURROWING OWL along the road to Drakes Beach.  I saw a FERRUGINOUS HAWK near Drakes Beach.  There had been an erroneous report that Sir Francis Drake Blvd would be closed due to rainy conditions.  I caution well-intentioned birders not to put out information on road conditions unless they have specifically checked with the visitor center or rangers with the national park service.

Subject: [NBB] Outer Point Reyes 10/1/2018: Pacific Golden Plover, RED-THROATED Pipit
A RED-THROATED PIPIT was observed associating with a flock of American Pipits on the Nunes Plateau today.

If you're heading out toward Nunes, pull off at the highest point before dropping down to the ranch. The pipit flock was in the field on the east (left) side of Sir Francis Drake. Also in the field was a Pacific-golden Plover and (2) Pectoral Sandpipers that were associated with a small flock of (8) Killdeer.

There were a number of other continuing birds from the weekend at Fish Docks and other sites but I'll let others report on those.

Hi All, 
   Had to take one last look out at Bodega Bayto see what was in front of the front. Nothing vagrant at any of the usualspots, even yesterday's Tropical Kingbird had flown, but Dan Nelson had heardwhat sounded like a Bobolink, so I headed up to the ridge to the south ofCampbell Cove. I took that left to the other parking lot at Bodega Head, theone at the end of Westshore Road with the locked rest room. No BOBO, but just a little waydown the trail that the fishermen use to get to the South Jetty there was amixed flock of sparrows that included a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.

Subject: [NBB] Hawk Hill, BLACKPOLL WARBLER, 01Oct2018
Hello,


This morning at 10:20 there was a BLACKPOLL WARBLER foraging just beyond the fence at the North platform atop Hawk Hill. The North platform is where most of the hawkwatchers (GGRO) congregate. The bird was around for 5-10 minutes as it seemed to be foraging for the small and very persistent flies that were hanging around in the still air. It appears to me to be a first year bird, but I'm open to any interpretation and suggestions. It was a large warbler with two prominent wingbars, streaking on the back, white undertail coverts, and orange feet. There are photos on my ebird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48870881 https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48870881

OK, I just looked at the cleaned up images on my computer that Mark sent to me. I brightened them up as well to show that there is no obvious complete eyering and bill shape is off for a siberian species. I cannot tell whether the plumage is brown or dark olive/grayish, but I think it is just a wet pewee from what I can gather from the poor photos. Mark only had time to snap a few shots at one angle before it disappeared. Photos from the side would clearly show the ID, but these are lacking. However, Mark described the bird with a very short tail, brownish tones overall, rounded head and a faint but complete eyering.

If you’re at the Fish Docks in the coming days, you should keep an eye out for this bird just in case.

I’m still waiting for cleaned up photos from Mark this afternoon before I can give a firm opinion of what the bird is. So hold on until further info unless you are there already.

Mark saw it for a few seconds at entrance to Fish Docks by residence but it flew into vegetation and he couldn’t relocate it. Photos are only from the front, so face, underparts and tail is all that is visible.

A few of us have looked at the photos, but it could be a really bad photo of a pewee at a bad angle that is distorting our perception. He saw a few pewees there, but he didn’t think it was a pewee at the time which is why he photographed it.

Subject: [NBB] Pt. Reyes booby, warblers, Lawrence's
Today was the single best Pt. Reyes day I've ever experienced. I got out early and started at Nunes Ranch at around 9am. Best bird at Nunes was an immature(?) male LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCH that landed briefly on a fence along the southwest side of the low-lying marshy field (which is at the bottom of the hill, past the end of the row of cypress trees). Two NASHVILLE and a HERMIT WARBLER were in the trees.


I met up with Adrian Hinkle and Jason Vassalo at the Fish Docks, where the cooperative OVENBIRD was strutting on the ground under cypresses across the road from the house.


At Mendoza Ranch the CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER found earlier by Adrian and Jason was flitting around in the cypresses, along with a BLACKPOLL. A deep search of the trees by a number of observers turned up a MACGILLIVRAY'S and another NASHVILLE WARBLER, and Jason got a quick look at an INDIGO BUNTING which I didn't see but heard chipping. A couple of BROAD-WINGED HAWKS also put in appearances while I was there, one of which landed briefly in the cypresses before being chased off by ravens!


The Drakes Beach trees were quite empty with very few birds.


Back at the Fish Docks in the afternoon, the MAGNOLIA WARBLER was showing nicely in the pines. Soon after Adrian and Jason left (sadly!), Larry Nigro came back from the Chimney Rock trail reporting a booby roosting on the rocks out at the end. Bob Schiro and I hiked out there to find a BLUE-FOOTED BOOBY sitting with the cormorants and pelicans on a large guano-covered rock just offshore, which is visible from the overlook at the end of the Chimney Rock trail. The bird wasn't too distant and I was able to get some okay photos, which I'll post on eBird.


Other Fish Docks warblers observed by others that I didn't see were a Northern Waterthrush, a Blackburnian, and a(nother) Blackpoll found by Jason and Adrian earlier in the morning.


Get out there and bird! More SE winds and overcast are predicted tonight!

Hi all,

I am writing on behalf of Carol Oakes from Marin County who called me tonight to say she found a Vermillion Flycatcher near the town of Stinson Beach. She was staying in Seadrift overnight but was birding along the road in public the public area in the morning ( I believe it is Cll Del Arroyo Road near Dipsead Road that she was on), when about 9 am she spotted a small flycatcher that was in the trees along the road. She said the bird was brilliant red in the flanks and breast with a black slim pointed bill with a black tail and back. The bird was actively flycatching and was flying from tree to tree along and near the triangle of marsh in the southern most part of Bolinas Lagoon Not too far from the town of Stinson Beach . She saw it for several minutes and took several excellent diagnostic photos of the bird before she said it flew east towards Highway 1 where she last saw it . The photos show a Obvious Vermillion Flycatcher that looks to be a young hatch year male . I am doing some research still , but as per E Bird ,it looks like this Vermillion Flycatcher is the second record for Marin , but I believe there may a few older records.
I will post the photos here in the photo section of NBBs for all to see as per Carol.


Hope someone gets out and finds him out there!
Great find Carol Oakes!




Best,

NiBBers,


Sorry for the belated report. Brook O'Connor spotted a TROPICAL KINGBIRD on the fence at Hole in the Head at Campbell Cove (Bodega Bay) yesterday afternoon about 4 PM. Many observers. It foraged for ten minutes or more from the fence near the parking lot before flying west across the Hole. Photos on eBird. Silent, so presumed to be Tropical rather than Couch's on the basis of probabilities, though, if adult, the irregular shingling of the primaries, visible in posted photos, might rule out Couch's. Dan Nelson reported it still there this morning.

Jack Hayden's 9/29/18 post gave a very helpful and accurate location for the Sage Thrasher (thank you!): https://goo.gl/maps/hYEr5J9FnBt.

Later that day, Mark Schulist posted excellent coordinates for the Vesper Sparrow: 38.0288580,-122.5087770. The Vesper came out to the triangular island with the large rock at the intersection of the the trails and foraged right in front of four of us.

When I arrived in the morning, hundreds of Vaux's Swifts circled the area and headed south.

Hi Birders,This morning around 8:00 I found a TROPICAL KINGBIRD resting and foraging from low vegetation at Campbell Cove. Perfect low sunlight, nicely colored bird. I informed other birders, and was told that this bird was reported previously, yesterday afternoon. However it didn't make it onto NBB (that I can see..) and  apparently not eBirds.    However, there was a WESTERN Kingbird , reported here on 9/29, on eBird.      Hmmmmm.    I believe this might an error.  Or perhaps not. 
At any rate, I got great pics of a TROPICAL KINGBIRD there this morning, 9/30, and showed it to others.
Good luck,~ Dan Nelson - Sonoma County

Subject: [NBB] Seasonal Occurrence/Local Occurrence: Vaux's Swifts Tonight @ Crepuscular/Dusk....&, In Addition, Hermit Thrush....Western Tanagers
Today, 9/30/18, no rare sightings to report, but interesting to detect seasonal occurrences, such as:

- The VAUX’S SWIFT phenomenon at the Brickyard adjacent to San Pedro Road (on the way to McNear’s Beach) in San Rafael continues.

I’m not a counter and, in addition, we did NOT arrive until approximately sunset, so I am not able to estimate how many were seen this evening..

But, during our 1/2 hour of observation, the peak was approximately 750 individuals, with about 1/4 eventually entering the north-most chimney.

The best total #s are obtained from following the Google group listserv devoted to this spectacle where ongoing volunteers share their findings.

- 1 HERMIT THRUSH calling (e.g., “choop-choop”) in our open space forest adjoining our residence today at dawn.

As many of you already know:

By October, this species is common to abundant throughout our region
throughout the non-breeding season.

For me, it was my initial autumn detection of this species at a low NBB altitude……..given I heard this species
singing at higher NBB altitudes during the past breeding season (e.g., in April and May).

My readings suggest that non-breeding Marin Co. Hermit Thrush individuals (which is probable for the one I heard calling today)
are a different subspecies than the breeding individuals in the NBB.

- For the past week, I continue to periodically hear the “tuh-slip” call note of transient WESTERN TANAGER individuals. This species does NOT nest in the forest
adjoining our place, but its call is common annually from approximately mid-August through the initial portion of October.

Regards, Daniel

The continuing SAGE THRASHER was seen well this morning at the previously reported blackberry patch north of pond 3. The VESPER SPARROW was showing on the fence line and in the bushes at the SE corner of pond 2, near the fenced off retention ponds.

I will upload photos to eBird shortly.

Just saw the Sage Thrasher on the north side of Pond #3 at Las Gallinas Sewer Ponds (Friday 9/28, 4:45pm).  As you work your way east along the north side of Pond #3, the bird was in the first large blackberry patch you encounter (north of the levee road and still west of the first tree).  Bird flew up to top of the bush just as I approached or I would have missed it.  Great, extended views near highest branches in that bramble.  Also saw a Say's Phoebe a bit west of there and a coyote ambulating on three legs.  Windy.

From: Daniel Edelstein <danieledelstein...> [northbaybirds] <northbaybirds-noreply...>
Subject: [NBB] Bodega Bay...& Las Gallinas Wildlife Ponds S. Rafael: Vaux's Swifts & Etc. Seasonal Sightings...
David Assmann’s excellent sightings today at this birding venue have already been noted in an earlier post, with my following observations nowhere near as interesting or as “unusual”:

LAS GALLINAS…..(ebird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48770989 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48770989>)

1. Watched aerial foraging of 26 VAUX’S SWIFT individuals over and near Pond #1.

I’m speculating as to where they go at night for a roost as an interesting question...and, thus, perhaps the answer is they may potentially roost at the nearby St. Vincent School/complex in the Marinwood area one exit north on Highway 101 of this location.

That area has some old buildings where cavities and/or chimney-like structures could host this species for roosting.

Thus, I'll soon go check out St. Vincent soon at dusk to see if my speculative theory may possibly be true (?) Stay tuned.

Of course, my “brickyard” visit a few days ago at dusk to the S. Rafael roosting site yielded (for me) an uncountable, en masse, awe-inspiring gathering of this species.

2. One female COMMON YELLOWTHROAT heard calling on the south side of Pond #1, then seen in the open within the Anise/Fennel.

If resident (and not a transient migrant from outside the SF Bay Area), this Common Yellowthroat subspecies individual is recognized by the CA Dept. of Fish Wildlife as a
CA Species of Special Concern…..and, hence, appears on the CA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife’s
“Special Animals” list.

3. Given I have NOT recently seen other common and nesting Marin Count/NBB area swallow species lately at this site or elsewhere in the NBB (per their dispersal and/or migration already),
it was interesting to observe three NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW individuals foraging over Pond #1 today.

According to the “A Checklist of the Birds of Marin Co., CA,” (available for $5 via marinaudubon.org <http://marinaudubon.org/>)
their current “locally common" abundance level in Marin Co. will dip to “uncommon” and/or “rare" throughout the area by the end of October’s first week (if
recent year’s results repeat again this year).

In total, I tallied 75 species throughout the day with the visiting Australian birding guide I led on a tour today to this site and elsewhere, including:

BODEGA BAY….

1. One RED-THROATED LOON 150 yards west of the Tides Restaurant patio.

2. Five COMMON LOON individuals expressing 50-80% alternate plumage on Bodega Bay from Porto Bodego to the Hole In The Head area.

3. Eight BLACK TURNSTONE individuals on the north side of the Tides Restaurant amid the rocks near the pier.

ACROSS THE STREET FROM PACHECO POND (immediately south of Bel Marin Keys Blvd., ~.8 mile east of Hwy. 101)…

1. ONE LINCOLN’S SPARROW amid the Anise/Fennel…and my “first of fall” (FOF) sighting for this “over-wintering”/non-breeding resident in the NBB.

The lagoons good patch continues! I located a Yellow-green Vireo at the junction of Field and Simmonds Roads (just south of the main lagoon and just SW of the Marin Headlands Visitor Center Car Park) this morning. When located c. 9:30am, the Vireo was with a roving mixed flock of Sparrows, Juncos and a few Townsend’s Warblers actively feeding in Cypress trees and Monterey Pines (where the Hermit Warblers have been over the last month), 50 yards west of the yellow hydrant. I lost sight of the Vireo at c. 9:45am but hoping it is staying in that general area. The flock includes a adult Chipping Sparrow.

Please be sensitive to the privacy of the residences at this location.

Poor photos will be posted on my eBird Checklist later today.

Subject: [NBB] RROS September 23 Bodega Bay pelagic trip
The Redwood Region Ornithological Society (RROS) pelagic charter out of Bodega Bay yesterday (September 23) provided a bit of excitement. Despite threatening forecasts for wind and choppy seas, Captain Rick Powers guided us to Bodega Canyon, where we then turned our backs to the wind and waves for our run south along the continental shelf to Cordell Banks. Conditions improved notably for our return.

Highlights included a cooperative pair of GUADALUPE MURRELETS (definitively photographed), second record for Sonoma County. With the high plumaged TUFTED PUFFIN on our return, we scored a six alcid day. Shearwaters were scattered along the route, with decent looks at the usual suspects: Sooty, Pink-footed, and Buller’s (of these, just a few). Near shore on our return, at a feeding frenzy around a Humpback Whale concentration, a small black-and-white shearwater flushed, then flew off out of sight. Very likely a MANX SHEARWATER, though seen by just a few on the boat. Northern Fulmars and Black-footed Albatrosses were common and widespread along our route, though storm-petrels were few and far between (a few Ashy’s and a single Fork-tailed), as were phalaropes (mostly Reds). We spotted no Sabine’s Gulls and had only a distant glimpse of an Arctic Tern. Jaegers also were few, though a late LONG-TAILED and a POMARINE were close enough for the big lens crowd.

Cetaceans brought cheers and exclamations with bow-riding PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED and NORTHERN RIGHT WHALE DOLPHINS and DALL’S PORPOISES, topped by more than a dozen HUMPBACKS feeding on an abundance of anchovies close to shore plus two pairs of BLUE WHALES.

I saw this bird at 5 PM today. At around 5:30 PM a Northern Harrier
snatched a warbler-sized bird out of one of the trees it was foraging
in. I wasn't able to see the prey item well enough to identify it but it
had a pale underside and the only 3 warblers I was seeing at that time
was the Blackpoll and 2 Yellow Warblers. Hope it wasn't the Blackpoll...

Thanks Mark! Our group managed to see the NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH in the deep

letting us know and giving us directions. We had to take a small path to

Also at the Fish Docks, the continuing GRAY FLYCATCHER was still along the

Subject: Re: [NBB] Blackpoll Warbler Owl Canyon, Bodega Bay
Gordon!

Thanks for the confirmation! Earlier in the day, I saw a warbler there with two distinct wing bars and otherwise generally the right coloration that clearly was something different, but I couldn't see it well enough to figure out exactly what it was. I strongly suspect that the bird you've identified is the bird I saw as well.

Thanks!

Colin

A Blackpoll Warbler was feeding actively in the pine tree next to the trail entering Owl Canyon around midday today. Noted back with streaks, two wingbars; yellow wash on face, throat and sides of breast, faint streaks on sides of breast also. White undertail coverts, slightly paler above and below eye, bill pale below, feet yellowish. Two photos are included in my eBird post for today.


I also briefly saw what may have been a Nashville Warbler near the entrance to the canyon, feeding fairly actively in brambles. Gray back, no wingbars, white eyering, yellow below, but I couldn't see the throat well.

FOS Fox Sparrow in Occidental at the OAEC on 9/19. GCSP and WTSP should be here any day now.
And a friend sent me pictures on 9/21 of Burrowing Owl FOS on her driveway at the highland W end of Coleman Valley Rd where they over-winter every year. Hoping for another big SEOW showing like last year out there?

Around 4:45 this afternoon, I was looking to see the Waterthrush again
before calling it a day (we had seen it earlier in the day a couple of
times). No Waterthrush but an Ovenbird popped in for a bath to the same
spot where the Waterthrush had been previously seen.

Here's a link to my eBird report which has photos. I hope this works...

Subject: [NBB] Outer Point Parula, etc.

Great day birding the Outer Point with Lucas Corneliussen and others today! It was actually one of the deadest days I’ve ever seen on Pt. Reyes in terms of bird numbers and diversity — but that didn’t stop a few nice rarities from showing up! Best bird was a beautiful blue, olive, and neon-yellow 1st-fall female NORTHERN PARULA at Nunes Ranch, foraging in the tops of cypresses at the far end of the row of trees (bottom of the hill). Surely one of the most stunningly beautiful warblers I’ve ever seen.




Other good stuff included the continuing GRAY(?) FLYCATCHER at the Fish Docks — still occasionally bobbing his tail up and never down — a CHIPPING SPARROW at the Docks, and a BROAD-WINGED HAWK fly-over at Mendoza.




An interesting chip note in the Drakes willows was probably a Redstart, but we never saw the bird. 




Chestnut-sided Warblers were reported at Fush Docks and Drakes but I didn’t see either one. 




Good Birding, and Go A’s!

This morning Janet and I lead a bird walk in Olompali St. Pk. for the non-profit The Olompali People (TOP).
The group found two FOS Red-breasted Sapsuckers, an adult and a juvenile in the Pepper Trees across from the Adobe structure.
Also present was a Western Wood-Pewee.
Enjoy the great weather for the weekend,

Subject: [NBB] Geese on the move today!

FYI: I have seen or heard several flocks of geese going over Southern Marin high SE today, either Cackling or Greater White-fronted, including a flock of 95+ high over Tam Valley in Mill Valley at c. 12:30pm today. Unfortunately I didn't have bins with me at the time and traffic/noise was making definitive ID based on call tough. David Wiechers and I heard a smaller flock of geese progressing SE above the fog at Rodeo Lagoon at c. 9:45am this morning. I be surprised if the hawk watchers at Hawk Hill aren't connecting with a few skeins of geese today.

So.... keep looking upwards!
