Smallish oriole with a relatively short tail, bright yellow underparts, greenish upper head, dark eye, feet appeared slate-gray in photos. Bill somewhat short and down-curved with a grayish upper mandible and mostly pale lower mandible. In the field I noticed a smudge of black just below the bill and photos show dark areas on both sides of the bill's base possibly suggesting a hatch-year male; these dark marks were not seen on the Orchard Oriole observed here on 6 Oct. Two prominent white wingbars. Bird was silent during observation. (photo)"

Subject: [slocobirding] Orchard Oriole, Hardie Park, Cayucos, 10/21
This morning an Orchard Oriole was back at Hardie Park in Cayucos. It
favored the flowering tree at the park entrance, which is just across B
Street from the pool, but moved to several different nearby trees and to
vegetation by the tennis courts and the pool. Possibly the same bird I found
here on 6 Oct. It never vocalized this morning.



Also at the park was a Yellow Warbler and a Nashville Warbler.

Subject: [slocobirding] The Bob Jones Trail (and El Chorro Park)
Hi all,


I have been impressed and exasperated on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the basketball court along the Bob Jones trail


PROTHONOTARY WARBLER (Tu,Wed,Th) Always brief looks, always within a foot or two of creek level. Spends LONG periods of time out of sight, yet returns.


MAGNOLIA WARBLER (Tu,Wed,Th) Slowly but frantically works the willows of the Creek edge, giving longer looks when present. I may be wrong, but it seemed like there were at least two individuals. I have many medium quality shots of one which has a strongly greenish back and nondescript black stripes under the wings. I have several of an individual with a much grayer back and stunning black stripes.


BLACK and WHITE WARBLER (Tu, Wed) For me, at medium elevation in cottonwood (or cottonwood-like) trees. (in contrast to a black-throated gray warbler that mimiced the magnolia)


GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET (Tu,Wed,Th) For me, at various elevations in the Cottonwood trees.


Overall, this area has been extremely difficult photographically. Humblingly challenging for me. Hope your work has been more productive.


RED-NAPED SAPSUCKER (Th) Down the trail, in the tree with the sign Peruvian Pepper Tree. At least yesterday it worked holes readily visible from the trail. No surprise it was reported by several. Worth mentioning, it's plumage is really fine!


RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER (Th) One, across San Luis Creek directly opposite the favorite viewing spot for the prothonotary warbler. Sapsuckerly success motivated me to stop at El Chorro Park on my way home, and sure enough a red-breasted, also noteworthy in its fine plumage, was in its well used pepper tree at the north end of the group picnic areas.


Happy birding!

- de Anza Trail - Central Atascadero, San Luis Obispo, California

- Media: 2 Photos
- Comments: "Dark, bold streaking observed across yellowish breast and sides, most dense on breast. Bird was found in a remote section of the river bed where some small pools of standing water remain. Observed walking along edges of tiny pools only a few feet across mostly covered by low-hanging branches. Bird was silent but bobbed its tail constantly which helped in separating this bird from nearby White-crowned Sparrows and a Hermit Thrush. Bird stayed in deep shade for most of the observation making photos tough to get. Approximate location: 35°29'52.5"N 120°38'55.5"W. Be attentive if you go as several active homeless encampments are between the parking area to the north and the section of river bed where the bird was observed."

Ditto to Maggie's email on sightings. I would add that the Prothonotary Warbler was seen down low near the water, on the other side of the creek, in the area close to that small basketball court referenced. As I continued on along the path that becomes Blue Heron Drive I saw a Black Throated Gray Warbler in the willows creekside. Also, a dark morph Ferruginous Hawk flew over.Thanks everyone for those sightings!

The Prothonotary Warbler found by Petra and Jack Clayton is still present along the Bob Jones Trail near the Avila Country Club. It was seen today in the same place they reported it, near the basketball court and small playground area just before the house with the feeders.

Today Jack Clayton spotted it and made several birders very happy.  Vincent Baker found a Golden-crowned Kinglet.  We had 2 Black-and -white Warblers together in the same trees as 2 Golden-crowned Kinglets.

Subject: [slocobirding] Sage thrasher at Hi Mtn.
Hello all,
The 17th annual Hi Mountain Lookout Open House event was held Saturday, Oct. 13th. A group of 12 birders participated in the morning birding field trip, and several attendees continued to bird from the lookout throughout the day. Birding highlights of the day were a GOLDEN EAGLE soaring over the slopes within the Santa Lucia Wilderness Area in Los Padres National Forest, and a very cooperative SAGE THRASHER perching high in chaparral shrubs on the upper slopes near the lookout throughout the afternoon, and coming in close to feed on coffeeberries in the shrub growing adjacent to the water cistern at the lookout.

The Sage thrasher, to the best of my knowledge, is a new documented species for Hi Mountain. There was a Sage thrasher reported here years ago, but the observer's name and date are unknown. I have tallied mine and other birders checklists, including the Morro Coast Audubon Society peregrine falcon nest watch volunteers staffing the lookout in the late 1970's. Within a 3-mile radius from the lookout the Hi Mountain bird list is now at 107 species.

Photos of the Sage thrasher and other bird sightings are posted on my eBird checklist at
https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fview%2Fchecklist%2FS49199604&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7C963a5347eb0146bd1ec108d6323528ff%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636751601228256353&amp;sdata=jj4PXKbcDOuCZswLNFp6zjFecjJ3Wp6hpzo9cMi1JTs%3D&amp;reserved=0

No luck trying to relocate the Prothonotary Warbler from 12:30 to 2:30 today on the Bob Jones Trail in Avila Beach. But Tom Edell found a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER and I later found a MAGNOLIA WARBLER with the Black-and-white across from the basketball courts.

Good job Cindy, and nice shots. Mine were longer distance, but I also ID'd Sage Thrasher based on yellow under covert, slightly curved bill, breast streaks and thrasher head shape.

Subject: [slocobirding] About "witchit, witchit" Song
I’ve found the bird and it’s not one I expected because these birds — white-crowned sparrows — are winter residents in our yard and I’ve never heard this particular song before. Once I made a positive ID, I checked my Sibley — under the WCS description is a box titled “White-Crowned Sparrow Populations” which describes the Pacific population as having some differences from the interior ones.

Specifically, "Pacific birds sing a clearer, more rapid seeee sitli-sitli te-te-te-te-te-zrrrr or seeee zreee chidli chidli chi-chi-chi teew with quick slurred notes, often in pairs.” I interpreted the repeated sound as “witchit, witchit” whereas Sibley describes it as either “sitli, sitli” or “chidli, chidli.” It does beg the question though —is this Pacific population new to my yard since I hadn’t heard this song before OR are these interior birds who’ve learned the Pacific song? A puzzlement.

Subject: [slocobirding] Bird Call
I’ve been hearing a bird in my yard the past couple of days—a call/song that I haven’t heard before. There is usually a single or slurred first note but the defining characteristic is the two-note ending that sounds like “witchit, witchit.” I haven’t spotted him yet. Any ideas?

Subject: [slocobirding] White-throated Sparrow -Morro Bay
A White-throated Sparrow (FOS) dropped into our yard this morning. It didn’t remain long enough for a photo but hopefully will return.

Other sparrows present at the same time were Golden-crowned, White-crowns and a Song Sparrow. Presumably the Song Sparrow is the same bird showed up in this yard for the very first time on August 30 as yard bird 150.

Subject: [slocobirding] Elfin Forest Big Sit Schedule
I have prepared the following schedule for observers at the annual Big Sit
for this coming Sunday, October 14. Please let me know if you are unable to
participate at the time listed. I tried to set everyone at times you said
you were available. If I omitted your name (sorry, I have inadvertently
done it in the past) and you wanted to count, please let me know. If
something comes up at the last minute and you cannot participate, please
call me at the number below. If you want to count but did not get back to
me or cannot commit to a time, show up when you are able (after 9am). If
you want to come by after 9am and see how its going (or if you want to
bring by some snacks or drinks), you are very welcome to come by and not
feel obligated to be a scheduled observer! It is also fine to bird at any
time after your shift is over. Any observers who want to bring snacks or
drinks to share may do so, but it is certainly not required. This is
suppose to be a fun event of birding and birder socializing. Take a scope
if you have one, dress in layers with sun protection and please watch for
poison oak along the trail. Our observation location is at the wooden
overlook called "Bush Lupine Point": take the sand trail out from the north
end of 13th (in Los Osos) out to the wooden boardwalk and take the
boardwalk to the left to the overlook.

6am - 7am: Mike Stiles, Jim Royer

Subject: [slocobirding] Cedar waxwings Morro Bay SP campground
[Edited Message Follows]

I think it was Bill Bouton that asked me today if I had seen any cedar waxwings this fall, to which I replied no.  Well, 15 minutes later I walked up on a feeding frenzy in a coffee berry next to the bottle brush tree by the maintenance yard and field office.  11 cedar waxwings of various ages, Western blue birds, house finches, bush tits, towhees and more.  It was very birdy there this afternoon. I saw 50 species in a quick walk around the area.

I also heard that there were cedar waxwings in the Pines off La Loma on the other side of the hill today.

Subject: [slocobirding] you can only take so many new birds
Before you snap.Sitting at work, getting report after report...Painted Redstart, Green-tailed Towhee...day after day.

At first you try to tell yourself that it'll be gone by the next day, and there wasn't anything you could do about it. You're a professional and take your job seriously.

But on the 4th day, you realize you are pushing your luck and if you really take this bird thing seriously you'd better do something.
So I cancelled an after work photo appointment, got in the car, drove straight to Morro Bay from Arroyo Grande and got myself a Green-tailed Towhee. SLO county #348.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/28154077@N02/31384203548/in/dateposted-public/

What else could I do? It took all of about 1 minute to find the bird. Just how I was hoping it'd go down.

A bonus was the Palm Warbler, and 30 Greater White-fronted Geese. Now I can rest easy, for now.


Bird on,Tom SlaterNipomo

Subject: [slocobirding] Good friends at Laguna Lake
Hi all,


The lack of any warbler rarities was the only blemish on a birdy morning at Laguna Lake today. The long-continuing VERMILION FLYCATCHER continued, and continued to dazzle at its adopted tree. A formation of White Pelicans did their feeding ballet out in the lake. Countless munias of every age. My biggest thrill ocurred as I walked back to my car. I looked up and over to a group of very agitated crows, and immediately spotted the wide-eyed GREAT HORNED OWL they were displeased with. There was an outstanding window for photography and I fired off a half-dozen shots before the owl flew off with crows and a red-shouldered hawk in hot pursuit. Wow!

P.S. I also posted one more Green-tailed Towhee photo, a close-up which shows delightful facial details.


P.P.S. Dave Lawrence granted me retroactive permission to photograph his Vermilion Flycatcher

Subject: [slocobirding] Yellow-shafted Flicker Nipomo 10/8
[Edited Message Follows]

2 pm--A Yellow Shafted Flicker just arrived in my Catalina Cherry hedgerow in Nipomo near the swap meet neighborhood. I haven't seen the underside of wings yet, but the red crescent is on the nape and the under tail coverts are yellow along the side.

The berries are at least a month or more late ripening this year, usually enjoyed in late summer by Black headed Grosbeaks and Orioles,  but have been enjoyed by lots of winter arrivals and migrants this year.

--edit: Tom Edell suggests it may have been a female Intergrade and pointed to marks to look for: brownish crown and grey neck (as opposed to Int. male with dark red malar stripe as well as red nape.)

Subject: [slocobirding] Male Summer Tanager Nipomo swapmeet area
A male Summer Tanager helped himself to fruits in my Catalina Cherry hedgerow today, mid afternoon. He showed a large dull yellowish bill and brownish red wings. The overall color was scarlet (on the yellow side rather than blue side of red) and quite a standout in the dark overcast light . He flew off, to return a half-hour later briefly. About the same time a mixed flock of small birds moved through, among them a FOS Yellow-rumped Warbler (quite pale) and a FOS Ruby-crowned Kinglet. A colorful day despite the gloomy sky.

Subject: [slocobirding] The well chronicled great birds of the Morro Bay State Park marina area.
Hi all,


Today and yesterday, I viewed the birds visiting the Morro Bay State Park marina.


Palm Warbler: Seen in its historical location, along the boardwalk's southwest section, out near the remains of the large dead pine tree.


Reddish Egrets: At the southeast section of the boardwalk, entertainingly interacting with snowies and great egrets.


Green-tailed Towhee: Seen (both days) in the same area as the palm warbler (sometimes at the same time). Often feeding on the ground, much like a Fox Sparrow, around the dead patches of iceplant. When with sparrows it flushed and hid at the slightest movement. When alone, it was all but oblivious to observation.

Would those of you tell me where off LaLoma you saw the bird, please?
Was it the lower trail head nearer Quintana or was it at the upper corner.
We are leading a AWN "Songbirds in the Pines" walk there tomorrow at 9am
and it would be great to see that bird.

thank you

A Tropical Kingbird and a Cassin’s Kingbird were both perched on the wire fence near the windmill on Turri Rd. (Photo of Tropical)

Nice to hear the twittering of the Tropical as it called from the wire. I had just run into Mike Stiles who told me that he had seen a Tropical a little while before about a mile west from the windmill and that it had flown off. No doubt the same bird.

Subject: [slocobirding] Sage Thrasher Turri Road
There was an eBird report of a SAGE THRASHER on Turri Road in Los Osos this morning, near the pond. I just refound the thrasher about 150 yards west of the pond, right where the road becomes one lane as part of the road is slumping off. The thrasher was mostly perching on fence posts along the road, and seemed to be moving westward.

Subject: [slocobirding] Yellow-shafted Flicker Nipomo 10/8
2 pm--A Yellow Shafted Flicker just arrived in my Catalina Cherry hedgerow in Nipomo near the swap meet neighborhood. I haven't seen the underside of wings yet, but the red crescent is on the nape and the under tail coverts are yellow along the side.

The berries are at least a month or more late ripening this year, usually enjoyed in late summer by Black headed Grosbeaks and Orioles,  but have been enjoyed by lots of winter arrivals and migrants this year.

Subject: [slocobirding] magpie in Baywood Park!
Hello all,
This morning 10am I was startled to hear the chatter of a magpie from my studio apartment in Baywood Park. Got outside in time to see it fly from a cypress tree on 3rd St. across toward 2nd St. Driving around searching 10 minutes later I refound and photographed the YELLOW-BILLED MAGPIE flying to and briefly perching in the top of a cypress tree on Pasadena Dr. near the Morro Bay shoreline. Wow!

I was birding with Torrey Gage-Tomlinson and Mike Schaefer this morning
when Torrey found a Chestnut-sided Warbler Warbler (no Chestnut sides) in a
mixed flock, in the willows on the Oceano Lagoon Trail, on the east side of
the lagoon, near Grand. Other bird found by us at Oceano Lagoon included
several Black-throated Gray Warblers, a Hermit Warbler, a Nashville

Subject: [slocobirding] Birding Los Osos and Morro Bay State Park Board Walk - Sandhill Crane
This morning, Robbie and I birded Sweet Springs and the MB State Park Boardwalk; the bald eagle was sitting right above the bridge that leads out to the overlook. He was present for at least 30 minutes, then flew over Baywood B&B's toward Black Hill.
On the Morro Bay State Park Board Walk, a sandhill crane was just off the south end of the boardwalk. He also flew, passing right overhead, headed north. We also spotted a greater white-fronted goose out near the harbor seal hangout.
A large group of Audubon members from Davis were on the boardwalk with us and their leader posted the crane sighting on eBird.
Great day.

Subject: [slocobirding] Orchard Oriole, Cayucos Creek, 10/6
Late this morning a female/immature type Orchard Oriole was along Cayucos
Creek between the Ocean Ave Bridge and Hardie Park. It flew from there to
the Cape Honeysuckle hedge bordering the tennis courts along B Street. While
Jeff Miller and I were looking for the oriole, he spotted a Nashville
Warbler. Otherwise it was pretty slow.

Subject: [slocobirding] Vermillion, Blackpoll - Laguna Lake
We could not refind the Black-throated Blue Warbler, but Celeste and I did
see the continuing Vermillion Flycatcher in Cypress tree snags on the
inland side of the paved lakeside road about 100 yards from the boat dock,
heard the Tropical Kingbird along the shore nearby, found a Blackpoll
Warbler in a mixed flock feeding in flowering eucalyptus trees along the
asphalt loop path past the dock, and saw a Merlin chasing a Loggerhead
Shrike and a Ferruginous Hawk soaring overhead nearby.

Subject: [slocobirding] 2018 Elfin Forest Big Sit - October 14, Field trip October 13
The annual Elfin Forest Big Sit will take place on Sunday October 14 this
year. For those who have not participated, we will make a list of all the
birds we see and hear in one day from one spot - the overlook of Morro Bay
known as "Bush Lupine Point". From this vantage point we will be able to
see the coastal scrub of the Elfin Forest, the Morro Bay Estuary, the
nearby hills and the edge of residential Los Osos. We have tallied as many
as 122 species in one day from this one spot. Most years we spot 100 or
more species. It"s a beautiful location with an incredible view. The
birding changes as the tide goes in and out and the day warms up. (The long
term prediction is for clear skies and highs in the low to mid 70's). It is
an opportunity to meet many of the local birders and to share food and
drink as the day progresses. We will also compete against other big sits
across the country and in foreign countries who will count on the same
weekend. See https://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/connect/bigsit.php
for more info on the Big Sit.

Before the count, I need to know who is willing to help so that I can make
sure we have coverage from early morning till sunset. Please let me know if
you can help spot birds on this Big Sit and when you are able to help. I
will try to assign one or two hour shifts for spotters at time they are
available so that at least two birders are present for the whole day.
Birders who are unable to commit to a time can come at any time. Anyone who
wants to come out and see how things are going is welcome after 9 am. Any
and all snacks are welcome for the counters and others present. Please let
me know when you can count by Tuesday October 9, so I can start to make a
schedule for the count. Thanks to all who are able to help. It is a good
time and place for some relaxing birding from a scenic location. I will
give directions to the count site before the count.

There will also be a field trip on the day before the count which will be
for less experienced birders and to pre-field the location before the
count. It is in no way required for counters. This trip will meet at the
bay (north) end of 15th Street at 8:30 am and will be for about 3 hours. Be
prepared for leisurely waking in sand, and dress in layers as it can be
cool or warm. We will walk about a half mile. We can make accommodations
for wheel chair participants. Let me know if you are in a wheel chair and
we can meet you on the board walk. We typically see about 60 species.

Good Sitting,

Jim Royer

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48945588
- Media: 3 Photos
- Comments: "At all times during my observation the bird was foraging at or near the top of Monterey Pines. He was occasionally seen flying out either to flycatcher or reposition itself but mostly feeding along the branches and pine clusters. Spectacular red, black and white plumage and tail spreading behavior helped to easily separate this species from the accompanying flock of bushtits, chickadees and Nuttall's woodpeckers. This bird was found earlier by Mike Stiles. When I arrived at Black Hill, nearly 3 1/2 hours after the first report, all birders had left the park and finding the flock was the key to relocating this bird."

- Comments: "This bird was found in the Monterey Pines on the north side of Black Hill, not far uphill from Quintana Road by Mike Stiles. It tended to stay mid level in the trees, but occasionally move lower and higher. The black upper parts, white arc below the eye, red breast and belly, bold white coverts, pale vent through undertail, and tail with dark inner and three white outer retricies, plus its habit of fanning its tail as it actively fed made the ID straightforward. Examining my photos, I note that the primaries and inner tertials appear duller than the back and brownish or at least more gray. Most interesting to me is the red center to the throat, with a black band below it and a red again below that. Red extends up into the lower throat, an area that I would expect to be black according to the references checked. Perhaps the reduced black on the lower throat and red spot on the chin is age and/or sex related feature."

Montana de Oro State Park Campground this morning had a Chestnut-sided
Warbler (Tom Edell) at the creek mouth and later at the horse trail creek
crossing, a Blackpoll Warbler (Jim Royer and Brian Brown)at the end of the
first loop in mustard weeds and in a lone cypress tree, 2 Hermit Warblers,
Willow Flycatcher, and a Northern Parula (Jim Royer) in the willows just
behind the fence on the creek side of the back camp loop. Most of these

The Painted Restart was out this morning, continuing from Mike Stiles. From the trailhead at LaLoma Ave, MB, I walked about 700 steps until I saw a dead Monterey pine on the right and a live one on the left. It was feeding in both. It didn’t follow the bushtits when they flew. Better photos on my eBird site, later.

Subject: [slocobirding] Painted Redstart
Torrey and I refound the Painted Redstart and watched it off and on from
mid to the latter part of the afternoon. It was moving with a large flock
of bushtits, with a handful of gnatcatchers, a couple of chickadees, a
Black-throated Gray Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler and a couple of
woodpeckers. It called occasionally and was very actively feeding from half
way up the pines to near the ground. The flock moved around a lot so it can
cover a large area on the slope of Black Hill (it seemed to stay on the
Highway 1 side). Great find Mike!

Subject: [slocobirding] Flycatcher Festival at Laguna Lake
Hi all,


I enjoyed Laguna Lake today from 9AM to almost 2PM. Stopped about 7 times by the place where the black-throated blue was seen, and did not see it. Also missed seeing Jeff Miller who had better luck than I. So keep going but be prepared for possible disappointment. Also, never saw the Vermilion Flycatcher despite lengthy looks.


I did have some nice sightings, but first a quiz:


1. What species is actively building a nest, right now in October?
2. What food is eaten by both Red-shouldered Hawks and Pied-billed Grebes?
3. How many species did I see flycatching today?


I may have had my most cooperative Loggerhead Shrike ever, along the trail straight westward from the end of the road. It was flycatching and groundcatching. At one point it was working on something wiggly that I now think was a lizard tail. That was the only time it seemed to reperch to increase its distance from me.


The Tropical Kingbird was much more nervously feeding mainly from a Juniper on the northern side of the road near its end.


In the eucs of the same area, I briefly had a female Western Tanager. It too was flycatching, but preferred perching much less visibly than the kingbird.


OK, here are the quiz answers: The nest-builder is the Scaly-breasted Munia. Maybe that's related to why they're doing so well. A red-shouldered hawk dropped down from its perch and flew back into a tree less that 25 feet away. I thought it had caught a lizard, but in looking at my photos, it turned out to be a crayfish! Opportunistic! And 10 species flycatching at one time or another, with many many Say's and Black Phoebes, et al.

4, I think, new photos up on Flickr, but that's still an adventure!

Subject: [slocobirding] Black-throated blue warbler continues at Laguna Lake
Fifth time is a charm I was finally able to see the continuing BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER this morning at Laguna Lake, after 5 visits in 3 days and nearly three hours of waiting this morning.

The warbler was at these coordinates: 35.266694, -120.688591

Also of interest three VAUXS SWIFTS.

I've been too lazy and feeling guilty about not even getting to Laguna Lake, except for the vermilion flycatcher. While n the treadmill this morning, I heard a call that I knew wasn't one of my normal feeder birds and found two tropical kingbirds in my birch tree. so exciting!! They came to me!! they were preening in the drizzle.

Subject: [slocobirding] Sea-watch 10-3
I spent an hour yesterday morning with my spotting scope at Margo Dodd
Park in Shell Beach, scanning the ocean for pelagic birds ahead of the
tropical "storm".  Conditions were outstanding for a sea-watch, the
ocean glassy, the light filtered, the atmosphere clear.

The closest thing to pelagic birds of any kind were numerous jaegers
chasing flocks of Elegant Terns.  At one point I had six jaegers in the
scope at the same time, harassing the terns, forcing them to disgorge
recently-caught bait fish.  The harassing group of six jaegers included
two POMARINE and four PARASITIC.  I could find a jaeger or two on almost
every scan for the hour I was there, but have no firm number beyond
six--although there were undoubtedly more.  No jaegers were seen within
binocular range of shore.

No shearwaters or alcids were seen.

Hi all,


Well, the birders were out in force today at Laguna Lake, and the Black-throated Blue Warbler was seen by most, if not all at its previously reported location. It's more beautiful than my photos but I share them anyway (I hope). The Clay-colored Sparrow was a very gracious runner-up in the popularity contest.

Subject: [slocobirding] Chestnut-sided Warbler, Morro Creek, 10/1
This morning there was a Chestnut-sided Warbler in the willows along Morro
Creek at the south side of Lila Keiser Park. Good fall for this species with
five reported in the county including birds at Oso Flaco Lake, the Pismo
State Beach Oceano Campground, and Del Mar Park in Morro Bay (where two
different birds have been photographed).

Late this afternoon I had two Clay-colored Sparrows at the seed feeders in
front of the pink house on Garden Street, one house from the corner with
Nancy in Los Osos (near Cuesta Inlet). (This is the home that had the
wintering Bay-breasted Warbler).

Subject: [slocobirding] Black-throated Blue Warbler (Laguna Lake)
Laguna Lake was particularly good to us today. We entered four rarities on our ebird checklist (with photos):
- The previously reported Vermilion Flycatcher

- The previously reported Clay-colored Sparrow
- A Tropical Kingbird
- A Black-throated Blue Warbler (Black face, throat, and flanks; Black (not blue, though) head and back; Whitish breast and lower underparts; Large white wing-patch)

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48874201

The Black-throated Blue Warbler was foraging in trees around the west side of the short paved loop trail past the last boat ramp, first in a eucalyptus tree closer to the lake, then in a snag by the entrance to the overgrown trail, that leads west onto some sort of peninsula.

Technology is one of my many weaknesses. I now seem to have two Flickr accounts. The second on may have three copies of one photo. I'm pretty hapless!

Hi all,


A lovely Chestnut-sided Warbler thrilled the crowds again today at Del Mar Park in Morro Bay.

My troubles with FLICKR continue. I intended to post a single photo, but I think I posted it twice.

Subject: [slocobirding] Oceano Warbler-o-Rama
So after going to Oso Flaco for 3 days straight, I did the crack of noon search at Oceano campground just to shake things up a bit.
As is typical when there is an influence from a nearby Hurricane, there were high fluffy clouds and light winds, allowing my aging eyes to see movement much better. It was an ideal day to be birding (or anything for that matter... except flying a kite). The winds did finally pick up at about 2:45, but by then it didn't matter!

I amassed 9 warbler species, the highlight being 2 Hermit Warblers (one male on the peninsula, one female back by the amphitheater), one Chestnut-sided Warbler on the maintenance road, and a female Blackburnian Warbler back in the Monterrey Pine above the amphitheater. I also saw a Warbling Vireo.

I decided not to carry a camera, so I got nothing for you people, but it was a good day to be out birding.
Later this evening I saw a Barn Owl, GH Owl, and a Black-headed Grosbeak on a photo shoot at the Dana-Powers House in Nipomo.
Bird on!Tom SlaterNipomo

- Comments: "From the photo, the white patch on the primaries seems to lean towards Common Nighthawk, but the photo is so poor, it remains undetermined. It was feeding high above the trees with a lot of barn swallows. Oddly, it wasn't feeding above the nearby fields, or the lake. My son and I both saw the bird. We observed it on and off for about 5 minutes, remaining high above the trees and feeding. No vocalizations that I could hear."

Subject: [slocobirding] Nighthawk at Oso Flaco
So on Thursday evening I visited Oso Flaco Lake, a few miles from my house, my patch. Thought I'd enjoy it now before it goes under the knife next week.
There were quite a few warblers, and I found a Black-throated Gray among many Townsend's, Yellows, Common Yellowthroats, and OCs. Also many Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and an empid which I haven't identified yet. Anyway, a fun evening.
I went back tonight since things seemed to be heating up (Friday evening about 5pm) and found a similar flock, but this time with a Chestnut-sided Warbler female.

After a quick check of the lake, I hustled back down the tree tunnel and noticed a ton of swallows flying about. Then I saw what looked like a HUGE swallow, put my bins on it and to my surprise realized it was a Nighthawk. I don't know this species well, I've only seen it in the Sierra above a lake, and at Carrizo. So it was neat to see it over Oso Flaco!
I sat in the parking lot waiting for it to show up again, and it did, over and over and over, but very high up, feeding up with the swallows. It seemed to be a dark bird, with pointy wings, narrow like a swallow, but large. I prefocused my lens far away in the fields to set the focus and took one attempt at the bird and got one!

Oso Flaco Nighthawk_7889 2

I've never seen one at Oso Flaco before, or heard of anyone reporting one. If you look closely you can just make...

It gives the general outline of the bird, and you can even see the white primary patch. I'm hoping someone out there can use this horrid photo to let me know which type it is, lesser or common.I don't know how diagnostic the flying high/flying low stuff is. And I don't know if this photo holds any characteristics that will be definitive. But it is all I got. And either way, it's still pretty rad ha ha. This was a hail mary photo and I'm lucky to even have it for my own records.

OK, enough excitement,Bird on,Tom Slater

Passing by Shamel park the goose was eating grass and being chased by children. I escorted it to Santa Rosa creek where many Mallards were hanging out. Eventually it walked up bank and back to grass. It was not shy of people.

Subject: [slocobirding] Wintering Sparrows arriving- Morro Bay
Late Wednesday afternoon I noticed a definite increase in White-crowned Sparrows in our yard. We had a total of 2 for a few days and slowly until sunset the number jumped to 18 as they dropped into the yard. Both the yellow-orange billed gambelii and the yellow-billed pugetensis were arriving… about half of each subspecies were immature birds.

This morning a FOS Golden-crowned Sparrow joined the group. (photo) Only that single Golden-crowned today but I expect more will be arriving soon.

Subject: [slocobirding] Vermilion Flycatcher, Black-and-white Warbler, 9/27
This afternoon the male Vermilion Flycatcher continued in the lakeside
willows by the lawn with the floating dock at Laguna Lake.



Earlier this morning, the male Black-and-white Warbler I'd previously seen
at the Pismo State Beach Campground was along the western edge of the lagoon
between the Maintenance area and the campground. It was traveling in a flock
that included a Nashville Warbler.

Subject: [slocobirding] Oso Flaco Closure October 8 - October 31, 2018
Following up on Mike Stiles' message regarding the closure of Oso Flaco, we received the information below from Kevin Pearce of the California State Parks.
Jack and Petra Clayton,Los Osos

From: <Kevin.Pearce...>: <pcschaaf...> Date: Thursday, September 27, 2018, 4:04:48 PM PDT 
Good afternoon,
Thank you for contacting California State Parks, Oceano Dunes with your question. 
During October 8– 31, we will be working on replacing the culvert that runs along the roadway of Oso Flaco Lakebetween Oso Flaco lake and little Oso Flaco lake. During this project there will not be a safepedestrian access to access the boardwalk which is the reason we had to close the park. 
Our projectand work is permitted through October 31 but we anticipate we will be completed and able to reopenOso Flaco prior to that deadline. 
In short, No. There will be no vehicle or pedestrian access in OsoFlaco during this period. 
Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Regards, 
Kevin Pearce

I've been told by State Parks that the Oso Flaco parking lot will be closed from October 8-31 due to a construction project. I believe the park will be closed even if you park outside the lot and try to walk in.

Subject: [slocobirding] Oceano Campground
Birded the campground for several hours yesterday and today. Definitively more migrants today with good numbers of Yellow WARBLERS and Townsend"s. Hermits were plentiful too. Eleven species total.
Just north of the hook-ups there was a flock moving through. I sat for awhile and picked out a Blackburnian I originally thought it a first year female due to it's drab coloring but I had forgotten how drab they can be. It was a female or first year male. A Black and White moved through heading west. The gray cheek patch made me think female but probably a male. Later at the NW corner of the pond, before walking into the compound I found a Black and White warbler. This bird had a black cheek patch making me believe this to be a second bird.First Nashville, Wood Peewee and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher also.
Yesterday a Willow Flycatcher and a Hammond's/Dusky Flycatcher. Just Pac Slope today though.

Black-and-white Warbler (Mniotilta varia) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Sep 23, 2018 09:10 by Curtis Marantz
- Pismo SB--Oceano Campground, San Luis Obispo, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=35.1085767,-120.6265268&ll=35.1085767,-120.6265268
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48725706
- Comments: "Tom initially spotted the continuing bird in pines immediately south of the native plant garden, where we studied it briefly and took a few photos as it crept about the upper branches of these trees. Quite some time later, I relocated either this same bird or another individual that looked just like it in the willows in the southeastern corner of the lagoon near the intersection of Pier Avenue and Norswing Drive, where we again studied this bird as it moved rather rapidly through the trees, generally creeping along the branches and often remaining in places where it was impossible to photograph. It was also in this area where I heard this bird give a doubled, “siit, siit” flight-call that is typical of this species.
This was a small passerine that had a short, slim bill, a plump both, and a medium-length tail. Although I failed to notice the primary projection or the placement of the wingtips relative to the tail, I noted that the undertail coverts were relatively long, with the tail extending only a short way beyond.
This bird was strikingly marked, but with the plumage coloration representing exclusively black-and-white. Given that I saw this bird mostly from below, I was able to see clearly that the underparts were white with black markings that represented several rows of well-defined streaks along the flanks and spotting of the same color on the undertail coverts, but the throat, breast, and belly were unmarked. I also noted that the center of the closed tail was whitish bordered on either side by black. Given that our initial views of this bird were from below, my views of the upperparts were not as good, but when seen later in the lower branches of the willows, I was able to make out much of the pattern above. The crown was black with a white median-stripe and a white supercilium that was bordered below by a black postocular-stripe and what appeared to be some gray clouding on the auriculars. I also have some recollection of their being a white eyering, but I am now unsure about this. The back and scapulars were black with bold white striping throughout, and the wings were again black with two broad, white wingbars across the tips of the greater and median coverts. I have a somewhat weaker recollection about the remiges having narrow edges of white on a black background, but I cannot recall any more detail than this, or much of anything about the pattern on the upperside of the tail.
The bill and eyes both seemed to be dark, but I failed altogether to note the color of the legs and feet."

Blackpoll Warbler (Setophaga striata) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Sep 23, 2018 09:10 by Curtis Marantz
- Pismo SB--Oceano Campground, San Luis Obispo, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=35.1085767,-120.6265268&ll=35.1085767,-120.6265268
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48725706
- Media: 1 Photo
- Comments: "My understanding is that Jeff Miller initially found this bird this morning in willows near the trail at the intersection of Coolidge and Norswing Drives, but we initially saw it with a flock that was foraging in willows bordering both sides of the northern part of the lagoon. Maggie and I, along with two others, relocated what was presumably this same bird in pines along the peninsula quite some time later, suggesting that like the Black-and-white Warbler this bird moved widely.
I was able to study this bird and take photos in both places, so it is possible that if two birds were involved my photos may show the differences. Both birds were plump warblers with short and relatively slim bills, a weakly sloping forehead and a gently rounded crown on a head of unremarkable size that was joined to the body by a short and inconspicuous neck. The body was plump and seemingly full-chested, and the wings appeared to be relatively long, though I failed to note both the primary projection relative to the secondaries and the placement of the wingtips relative to what appeared to be a short tail that was weakly notched at the tip. The legs and feet were unremarkable in both their length and mass for a warbler of this size.
This bird had plumage coloration and patterns typical of a fall Blackpoll. The crown and upperparts were greenish-olive with at least some darker streaking apparent on the back, but I noted only a weak supercilium and an even weaker eyeline that was really quite subtle. Moreover, the greenish color of the face blended smoothly into the greenish-yellow color of the throat, breast, and sides. I noted almost no streaking at the sides of the breast, but the yellow of the breast and sides blended into white that continued through the middle to lower belly, flanks, and long undertail coverts. When seen from below, the tail was white centrally but with black borders on the outer webs of the feathers that seemed to expand distally yet not cross the tips of the feathers. The wings were rather blackish overall, but with white tips to the greater and median coverts that created two wingbars that extended straight across the upper part of the wings. I also noted fine edges of greenish to yellowish-olive on the remiges that produced a finely striped pattern on the rear part of the wing. I further recall noting a rather long primary projection that was accentuated by narrow tips to the exposed primaries that allowed me to see that there were quite a few primary tips extending beyond the longest secondary. I think the edges on the innermost secondaries were both bolder and whiter than those on the remaining feathers, but I am now a little unsure about this, and I cannot remember anything about the upperside of the tail.
The bill was at least mostly dark and the eyes were dark, but legs and feet appeared to be a pale yellowish-flesh in color."

Owen and I headed out for an overnight campout.
Nothing too spectacular. It was a bit hot (90 degrees at 4pm), and probably a little early for the migrants.We saw man Yellow-rumped Warblers at the CDF station, 3 Yellow Warblers at KCL, an Orange-crowned Warbler at Lawson Spring, and a ton of Bell's Sparrows at Quail Springs. I got some fun photos of them, and a nice Road Runner. Very few hawks or falcons. We also saw one Barn Owl, and two Great Horned Owls.

But we did get great looks at the Tule Elk and Prong-horn Antelope! And the camping was spectacular.
