From: Richard Bradus via groups.io <grizzledjay...>
Subject: [SFBirds] Pomarine Jaeger - leg injury?
By now many have had a chance to see the Pomarine Jaeger hanging out at Ocean Beach. I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the appearance of its left leg.
I was able to observe this individual at close range, and multiple excellent photos by others also show a clearly abnormal and enlarged tibio-tarsal joint (what we would call a knee on mammals, but actually more analogous to an ankle, at the mid point of the leg). There is an obvious pinkish protuberance anteriorly from what I presume to be the proximal aspect of the tarsometatarsus. Is this a healing fracture? Perhaps an infection? Whatever it is, it may explain in part the unusual behavior of this bird; spending a lot of time on the beach may be its way of trying to recuperate (?). It does appear to favor this leg - I did not see the bird walk, and when taking flight the leg dangles a bit and the bird takes some time to finally tuck it under its body. 
Any veterinarians or bird rescue folks out there who could provide an opinion or more definitive explanation?Thanks!
Richard BradusSan Francisco

Hello all,

While scanning the gulls on Ocean Beach in search of the continuing
Pomarine Jaegar this afternoon, I noticed a first year Lesser Black-backed
Gull among the large, mostly Heermann's flock. Photos in my ebird

Happy fall,

FWIW, the jaeger was apparently present until around 9:30 when it was
flushed by a beach walker - a few minutes before I got there - but the
observer then didn't notice which way it flew. I explored north and south
for about an hour without refinding it.

A beautiful BARN OWL flew up the Montcalm St steps on Bernal Hill earlier

It's the first time I've seen one in the city!
I've been hearing about a pair that have been recently hunting on the south

And the GREAT HORNED OWL continues to hang out in its 'regular' spot in the
Eucalyptus on the North side of the hill.

Subject: Re: [SFBirds] GPlover
The three birds already mentioned flew in from the south together, out
beyond the rocks, then banked slowly into the Gate without ever getting
adequately close to my viewpoint. The Black-bellieds were still in
alternate plumage, easily recognizable, but the Golden was in basic or juv,
and will sadly remain a G-P sp. Sadly because it was not a bright 14 karat
bird like the only other G-P I've seen in town, a Pacific some years ago at
the Battery, so the gray-brown dorsal color leaves space to consider that
it might have been an American. The bird was slightly smaller than the
B-b's, identical in shape and flight style, but lacked the white rump, and
had gray underwings.

Other notable birds were a Wandering Tattler, dark enough to remove any
hope of another Grey-tailed, and a very dark Parasitic Jaeger, barely
showing a white flash on the underwings.

Subject: [SFBirds] seeking white-throated swifts
Hi All,

The PHS wildlife rehab center has a juvenile white-throated swift who is now flighted and ready to be released in SF. They need help finding a flock for it to join.

They checked ebird and looked in several possible locations yesterday, to no avail.

If you see any white-throated swifts in SF, would you please send an email to me and <saksoy...>?
Sorry for the off-topic, but it'd be great to help make this happen.
Thanks,
Loretta

Subject: [SFBirds] Avian Flu and Reporting Dead, Sick, or Injured Birds
Hello Group

As the Avian Flu has been detected in Sacramento, those holding captive Birds await immediate news of any detection in San Francisco.

Reminder that ongoing protocol if you sight a Dead, Sick or Injured Bird (or any other Wildlife) should be to report it to SF Animal Care and Control.  ACC hotline is 415.554.9400

Reporting any in a timely manner will benefit all, especially if the Bird or Animal is Sick or Injured.  In the case of the Avian Flu, detection, sooner than later will save lives.

Unfortunately, the group of dead Gulls that was reported, was picked up by ACC and NOT tested.  They said State did not request it.  I spoke to CA Fish and Wildlife and they disagree and say they knew nothing about those Birds, maintaining that testing is priority.  Not sure where the disconnect is but, we must still all do our part.

Much appreciated
Kim F. in SF

I just came out to my backyard to check my plants and heard an unfamiliar chitter. Looked up and saw two birds, one following the other. I got a good look at the second one. It was an immature male Hooded Oriole. No orange on the head. I’m on the southwest side of Mt. Davidson.

Subject: [SFBirds] Male Hooded Oriole in our Glen Park garden
Hanging out before going down to the bay for a rather late-in-the-morning swim this AM, a stunning male Hooded Oriole flew in a couple of times for about 30 seconds, flitting mostly inside the sambucus. Berries are long gone.

Haven't seen one of these beauties in years. Sometimes it pays to stick around and be a bit late...

Good birding!

Subject: [SFBirds] Simonds Loop Rose-breasted Grosbeak
While chowing down on a burrito this morning around 9:50 I looked out at my feeders and was stunned to see a female Grosbeak! I didn’t have bins on hand but luckily had my camera and was delighted to find it was a female RoseBeak! It didnt stick long, as a scrub-jay scared the birds off and I haven’t seen it since (granted I only looked for 10ish minutes aftet).

If you decide to look for this bird is was coming to the feeders at 513 Simond's Loop, but may well go to the blackberries and vegetation strip across the road.

Was an extra nice surprise as this was my first ever true vagrant at my feeder! (barring a Red Fox Sparrow 9 years ago…)

This is a quiet neighborhood and please be courteous if you decide to chase. Good luck!

Logan

Subject: [SFBirds] Local Interest - Returning shorebirds and other seasonal sightings last few days
Shorebirds are starting to return to Crissy Lagoon, with most just passing through. On Tuesday an AMERICAN AVOCET was in the southwest corner. Thursday there were LEAST SANDPIPERS, WESTERN SANDPIPER, a SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER, and a GREATER YELLOWLEGS. A LONG-BILLED CURLEW showed up yesterday (still there today), along with a LEAST SANDPIPER.  Also yesterday a female BELTED KINGFISHER was fishing on the south side. AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS are there most days (there were 8 on Thursday). A WOOD DUCK continues at Stow Lake (along with the resident HOODED MERGANSER). Lots of newly fledged birds around - at Fort Mason the last WESTERN BLUEBIRD chick has left the nest, a young HOODED ORIOLE was behind the General's House and young BLACK PHOEBES are hanging around the north fence of the garden.  When I got back to my car at El Polin Spring on Tuesday, a newly fledged MOURNING DOVE was sitting next to my car.
