- Comments: "While going through the lists for the day, Fritz spotted this bird standing on the dock below the landing at which we had just arrived and mere meters from where we departed the boat a few minutes earlier. I then walked down onto the dock and took several photos before this bird flew to one of the braces for the building above, where it remained for us to take some more photos. I never heard this bird vocalize and it was rather sedate while under observation apart from it sone short flight. Not only was this bird a year older than the other three Yellow-crowned Night-Herons that were at the state park, but after seeing this bird we drove over to the state park marina and saw all three first-winter birds that have been there.
This was a stocky, medium-sized heron with a rather massive bill, a blocky head, a medium-length neck that was more massive than those of most herons yet slimmer than that of a Black-crowned Night-Heron, short and seemingly rounded wings, a short tail, and medium-length legs that had more mass than those of an egret. I thought the bill was quite deep and that it was about as long as the head was wide, with a culmen that curved subtly yet smoothly downward to the pointed tip of the bill. The forehead was steep but short and the crown was gently rounded back to the more strongly rounded junction of the crown with the nape. When extended, this bird’s neck was both long and slim for a night-heron even though it was both shorter and stouter than that of a egret. The body was plump, full-chested, and with a posture that was more upright than diagonal when the bird was alert. I noted minimal primary projection on short, rounded wings that appeared to fall right at the tip of the short tail, which was obscured by the closed wings.
This bird’s plumage patterns were clearly those of a subadult bird in that they combined a faint suggestion of the pattern of an adult on the head with the generally grayish or brownish body and wings of a young bird. The head was generally a slate-gray in color, but with the forehead and crown brownish centrally yet with a paler and somewhat yellowish frame that extended through the supraloral region and along either side of the crown. I also noted at least some suggestion of a pale gray stripe extending narrowly below the eye before expanding on the auriculars in a faint suggestion of the adult cheek-stripe. The chin and maybe also the upper throat were pale yellow and thus contrasting conspicuously with the more blackish face. I did not see the neck all that well, but it did not appear to contrast obviously with the body. The back and scapulars was a medium to dark gray and each of the larger scapular feathers at least had a relatively broad band of slate gray running down the center that was bordered on either side by lighter gray to create a striped appearance to the generally dark and grayish upperparts. The wings contrasted as lighter and slightly browner than the back, and at least most of the covert feathers had a small, pale spot where the shaft met the tip. The larger greater coverts, and maybe also some of the lesser coverts also had a paler stripe along the leading edge that gave the lower part of the closed wing a striped appearance that was even more conspicuously given the narrow but well-defined fringes on the tertials. I did not see the underparts as well as I did the upperparts and wings, but what I did see appeared to be quite dusky and seemingly not as conspicuously striped as were the first-winter birds seen shortly later.
The bill was a dull, blackish in color, and the irides were orangey and contrasting sharply with the black pupils. The legs appeared to be blackish when seen from the front, but greenish or yellowish-green when seen from behind; however, I cannot now remember the color of the toes."

Subject: [slocobirding] MBWBF Rarities Trip Continuing Birds
Today’s bird festival rarities trip first stopped at the floating dock near
the Morro Bay power plant, finding the male Long-tailed Duck (later seen
between the Coast Guard boats and the shore). A scruffy looking Osprey
perched on top of a nearby building. (Later an immature Y-c Night Heron,
showing a suggestion of the adult head pattern, was seen inside the shelter
of the Coast Guard Pier feeding on crabs). We found the immature Snow Goose
and a relatively dull male Eurasian Wigeon from South Bay Blvd. at high
tide (scoping from the bayside grassy spot which is a short walk from the
Cerro Romauldo Trail parking lot). On Foothill Blvd. (on the San Luis side
of LOVR), we saw a second differently marked immature Snow Goose and three
young White-fronted Geese in a low wet area on the Laguna Lake side of the
road. At Cuesta College we saw the adult male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in
the Horsetail Tree closest to the campus police station, and the very tame
Red-naped Sapsucker (some traits of Red-breasted?) in front of the
cafetaria in the very small pepper trees in the grassy area. In Avila, we
saw the adult male Harlequin Duck on the Hartford Pier side of the Cal Poly
Pier and two White-winged Scoters near the end of the Cal Poly pier. From
the nearby golf cart/Bob Jones Trail bridge over San Luis Obispo Creek we
saw two female Hooded Mergansers and many Common Goldeneye). The continuing
adult Red-naped Sapsucker was in a tree next to the golf cart path which
parallels the creek near the bridge, and it flew across the fairway to the
pepper trees between the maintenance building and the Bob Jones Trail.

Subject: [slocobirding] Oso Flaco fieldtrip Jan 20
We had 47 species and a great group. If you were on the trip you can email me and I can send you the list.
Highlights were a Burrowing Owl, Black Scoter flying past on the beach, and a American Bittern on the walk back that was skulking near the boardwalk in the reeds (Owen ran into his guidance counselor from high school on the boardwalk and  she said... Owen, what is that weird looking bird right there? Ha ha, thank you guidance counselor!). A few participants got Horned Lark on the beach for a life bird. Always makes me happy!

Bird on,
Tom and Owen Slater

Subject: [slocobirding] Carrizo Plain Winter Bird Festival Trip
Peter Gaede and I led a great group of participants out to the Carrizo Plain to look for wildlife. We ended up having great weather and an overall fantastic day.

Avian highlights included the following: Rough-legged Hawk, Mountain Plover, Long-eared Owl, Vesper Sparrow, Golden Eagle, Merlin, Prairie Falcon, Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Greater Roadrunner, Mountain Bluebird, Bell's Sparrow and many others.

Mammalian highlights included the following: two San Joaquin kit fox snoozing outside their dens, a large herd of Tule elk, a small group of Pronghorn antelope, many San Joaquin antelope squirrels, and about eight coyotes.

Subject: [slocobirding] Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival All-Day Boat Trip, 1/18
The highlight of today's boat trip was an abundance of adult and
first-winter Black-legged Kittiwakes with approximately 150 seen during the
day. Shearwaters were scarce with a single Short-tailed, Sooty, and
Black-vented seen, plus a single Northern Fulmar. Rhinoceros Auklets were
widespread offshore with 350 seen during the day. A first-winter Iceland
Gull (Thayer's), a first-winter Bonaparte's Gull, and two adult Herring
Gulls were seen.



In the harbor we saw both the female and male Long-tailed Ducks. We were
surprised to find a second-winter Yellow-crowned Night-Heron on the dock
after everyone had disembarked. A quick check of the Morro Bay State Park
Marina confirmed the three continuing first-winter Yellow-crowned
Night-Herons were still present there.

Subject: [slocobirding] Big Day for Bird Festival
Rich Cimino and I, along with the Pair of Wingnuts, led an enthusiastic group of birders today on a merry chase through Morro Bay, Atascadero and SLO birding hotspots as part of the Morro Bay Bird festival.

Highlights of our big day were: Long-tailed Duck, Surfbird, Rock Wren, Canyon Wren at Morro Rock; Snow Goose, Yellow-crowned Night-herons at Morro Bay SP Marina & Boardwalk; Golden Eagle, Yellow-billed Magpies, Phainopepla at Atascadero Wastewater Treatment Ponds; Sharp-shinned Hawk, Common Mergansers, Pine Siskins, Chipping Sparrows at Atascadero Lake; and Eurasian Wigeon at Elfin Forest Overlook. 121 species for the day, and most importantly, everyone had a great time!

Subject: [slocobirding] Oso Flaco public comment deadline nearing
NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE START OF A THREAD. IF YOU WISH TO COMMENT, PLEASE SEND COMMENTS TO ME ( <jer72701...> ). If folks want to have a discussion about this topic, we can do so elsewhere. Thank you!

Greetings!

As most of you know, State Parks is proposing development of Oso Flaco Lake to compensate for losses to the OHV riding area due to the problems with airborne particulates. The plans include a large campground of around 200 sites to accommodate large RVs as well as tents and cabins; day use and group use areas; extension of the bridge over the lake to form a loop trail; a new 40-acre OHV trail north of the Lake; extensive hiking trails on the east side of the preserve; and a possible southern entry point into the OHV area with an OHV staging area. Needless to stay, this will drastically alter the preserve--for instance, the proposed campground is nearly twice the size of the lake.

State Parks is gathering public input on this plan, but it must be submitted by Jan. 24, 2020--a week from today. Submit comments via e-mail to <oceanodunespwp.com>.

Images showing the dramatic changes this plan would bring about can be seen online. Go to < https://oceanodunespwp.com/en >, then click on on "Document Library," then on "Presentation from December 2019 Public Meetings." Scroll down to p.8 to see a map of the area marked up to show the planned "improvements." Or I can e-mail you a clip showing just this map.

I am eager to work with like-minded folks on preserving Oso Flaco in its present state. PLEASE E-MAIL ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

Thank you.

Subject: [slocobirding] North Coast birding festival birds
There are interesting gulls at the Elephant Seal Rookery, near Piedras Blancas. Yesterday I saw 2 Iceland/Thayer Gulls at the north end of the parking lot. Today the Rugged North Coast group saw at least 2 Glaucous-winged Gulls and a Snow White Glaucous Gull.

Two Ferruginous Hawks perched and soared at the Hearst Ranch pasture just north of the Hearst Castle entrance.

I spotted 2 Common Ravens along Hwy 1 approximately 1/2 mile south of the Harmony Headlands parking area.

Subject: [slocobirding] Friday Local Birds of Possible Interest
I pre-fielded for Morro Bay festival field trips today and had the
continuing 2 Long-tailed Ducks (one in the bay near Morro Rock and the
other between the Coast Guard Pier and the floating dock). Two
Yellow-crowned Night Herons stood on boats near the east end of the Morro
Bay State Park Marina. I couldn’t find the Summer Tanager in the nearby
campground (please let me know if you’ve seen it recently and exactly
where). I saw the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in the Horsetail tree next to
the police station at Cuesta College, but could not re-find the Red-naped.
I could not find the Tropical Kingbird at Laguna Lake (please let me know
if you know where it goes when it’s not near the end of the lakeside road).
I found two Cackling Geese and re-found the White-fronted Goose on the golf
course near the golf course pedestrian bridge over the creek in Avila. I
could not find the Harlequin Duck, thanks the the jet ski racing around
offshore north of the Avila Beach Pier. (Does anyone know this bird’s
habits?) Thanks.

Subject: [slocobirding] Carrizo Plain Birds
I made a quick scouting trip out to the Carrizo Plain today in preparation for my upcoming winter bird festival trip next Sunday. Highlights included a pair of Long-eared Owls, many Vesper Sparrows, and a small flock of Mountain Plover along Soda Lake Road about three miles north of KCL campground. This is a species that has been very difficult to find the past three years, so it was nice to locate this flock. Another highlight was the continuing Rough-legged Hawk that was originally found during the Carrizo CBC. Today the Rough-legged was found along Soda Lake Road just past the overlook hill for Soda Lake. Pictures of it can be found here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S63337371

Subject: [slocobirding] Bonus bird near Long-tailed Duck
A few days ago when I made the drive over to Morro Bay to see the Long-tailed Duck, which was cooperative, a woman came by and noticing I was watching birds, she called to me that the small tree at the south end of the little parking strip, not 15 feet away, had several White-crowned Night Herons roosting in it. She was right. The tree is about 15 feet tall. We are also seeing a Great Blue Heron roosting in the large tree in my front yard often this year. Sometimes more than one.

Fri., Jan. 10

Ventured up to the elephant seal rookery in search of Emperor Geese. No luck. There was, however, a GLAUCOUS GULL resting on the beach. Viewable from the end of the walkway to the left of the rookery parking lot.

I stopped at every pullout between the rookery and San Simeon Creek; checked also Morro Strand, the vicinity of Lila Keiser Park, and the MB SP Marina. No Emperors.

Other birds seen:
-Northern Harrier     along the coast
-5 Western Grebes   from San Simeon pier
-24 Surf Scoters           "           "
-2 Long-billed Curlew   San Simeon State Beach (at pier)
-10 Marbled Godwits       "        "

These birds were looked for this morning from north of the Piedras Blancas

Up date on this post.



Several people looked for these birds this afternoon without luck.
Apparently (and according to information extracted from the jpg file) the
birds were seen this morning (1/9) at 0930. They were on the beach at the
north end of the unpaved parking lot for the Point Piedras Blancas Elephant
Seal rookery. This was just after this morning's 6.3 high tide. We were
there in the afternoon before and during the -1.1 tide at 1535 when there
was endless exposed rocky shoreline for the birds to get lost in.



Tomorrow the high is 6.5 at 0847. That would be a good time to search for
the birds. Hopefully they are still in that area.



Emperor Geese also like to forage in short grassland habitat. Most of the
coastal area around Point Piedras Blancas is grassland, though the shorter
grasses are primarily near the creek mouths and there is a lot of it in the
restoration areas for the Hwy 1 realignment.



The last county record for this species is from Morro Bay over the winter of
1966-67. If gone from the North Coast that would be another location to
check.

Just received this photo of two Emperor Geese taken by a docent at "Elephant

rookery, but as of yet have been unable to get more information.

Subject: Re: [slocobirding] Emperor Geese
Up date on this post.



Several people looked for these birds this afternoon without luck.
Apparently (and according to information extracted from the jpg file) the
birds were seen this morning (1/9) at 0930. They were on the beach at the
north end of the unpaved parking lot for the Point Piedras Blancas Elephant
Seal rookery. This was just after this morning's 6.3 high tide. We were
there in the afternoon before and during the -1.1 tide at 1535 when there
was endless exposed rocky shoreline for the birds to get lost in.



Tomorrow the high is 6.5 at 0847. That would be a good time to search for
the birds. Hopefully they are still in that area.



Emperor Geese also like to forage in short grassland habitat. Most of the
coastal area around Point Piedras Blancas is grassland, though the shorter
grasses are primarily near the creek mouths and there is a lot of it in the
restoration areas for the Hwy 1 realignment.



The last county record for this species is from Morro Bay over the winter of
1966-67. If gone from the North Coast that would be another location to
check.

Subject: [slocobirding] Long-tailed Ducks, Canyon Wrens, etc.
This morning, 2 Long-tailed Ducks were in Morro Bay - one was with
Bufflehead next to the beach (on the south side of the Rock next to the
jetty that joins the Rock), and another was between the floating wooden
platform and the Coast Guard pier. They had different facial patterns. 2
Canyon Wrens were singing on Morro Rock (one on the south side - along
paved Coleman Drive that is closed to car traffic, and another on the east
side of the rock - next to the parking lot with the bathroom). They seem to
be more vocal in the morning. 2 Black-vented Shearwaters flew north by the
Rock, as seen from the high observation spot on the south west side of the
Rock.

Subject: [slocobirding] Y-B Sapsucker at Cuesta Park
There is now a different Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at Cuesta Park (not College) than the one recorded here during the CBC on Dec 14. This individual appears to be an adult female with a white throat, whereas the previous sightings were of a red-throated male, based on comparative photos. I initially assumed it was the same “continuing” bird. Some i.d. quality photos at https://ebird.org/checklist/S63147721. ( https://ebird.org/checklist/S63147721 )

- Comments: "I’d been seeing sparrows flit through the tall grasses on the saddle area of South Hills Open Space off Exposition Drive trailhead. Had only chased a few to no avail. This time I went just before sunset. A bird leapt from the grass along the trail. It stopped in a break in the grass and I got a clear look at the white eyering, yellow arc patch on supraloral. Streaked wings. Buffy sides. Appeared to be an adult. I followed bird as it hopped through the grasses and stood on a low rock. Got another clear profile view. Wasn’t quick enough with iPhone/binoc photo. Bird flew a few dozen yards away into deep grasses. Looked up Grasshopper Sparrows seen in SLO County. Bird matched. Excited to try to find another soon."

Subject: [slocobirding] MDO Ancient Murrelet, etc.
This morning I scoped for 2 1/2 hours from the bluffs to the north of
Spooner’s Cove (from an Overlook off the Dune Trail). There was a moderate
onshore breeze when I started. I saw one Ancient Murrelet fly by, a
Parasitic Jaeger fly around offshore for awhile, and 2 Common Murres shot
by. The rest of my sightings can by found at
https://ebird.org/checklist/S63075203.

From: Tom Edell via Groups.Io <TEdell=<aol.com...>
Subject: [slocobirding] Long-tailed Duck, Morro Bay
Just an FYI, that the Long-tailed Duck currently in the Morro Bay Harbor
Mouth area is a male. The last photo taken on December 19th (distant)
showed a bird with an all dark bill, a clear dark cheek patch, and no white
in the scapulars. The bird photographed there yesterday and today has a pink
bill with a dark tip and base, a faint cheek patch, and at least one long
gray scapular. This seems like a quick change for two weeks, but perhaps it
was an immature male all along that is now molting into its first alternate
plumage. It would be good to note the bill, cheek and scapular
colors/markings on future sightings. There has been more than one at the
harbor mouth before.

Subject: [slocobirding] Common Goldeneye Morro Bay
Penny Principe and I birded the Morro Bay State Park Marina/Boardwalk this morning. While scoping the bay from the west end of the boardwalk, Penny found a male Common Goldeneye. We had nice views through the scope, but he was too distant for a photo. The continuing three Yellow-crowned Night-Herons were perched on the sterns of boats in the marina.  Thank you, Maggie Smith, for pointing them out.  A bald eagle flew directly overhead. Ebird List:https://ebird.org/checklist/S63060817

Subject: [slocobirding] 2019 Arroyo Grande 5MR Results
I've written some observations about my 2019 Five-mile Radius local
birding, about 2500 words including a list of birds I expected to see
contrasted with the list of birds I actually did see.  If you have
insomnia and would like to receive a copy by return email, just let me
know and I'll send you a Word document by email.

I was often alerted to the presence of local rarities by San Luis Obispo
County birders, and I thank you all for sharing your information in a
timely manner, and for your interest in my 5MR project.

Here's the Reader's Digest version summarizing my birding within five
miles of the house last year:

·Number of days birding in the 5MR:194, probably averaging two and a
half hours a day when birding;

·Gallons of gasoline consumed in the 194 days: about two (I drove the
5MR in my Chevy Volt, averaging about 28 miles a day when birding away
from Deer Canyon.The Volt is nuclear-powered thanks to Diablo Canyon,
with an effective electric range of 36 miles.);

·Number of species seen: 224 (I set par at 221 in January 2019);

·Number of target list species missed:19;

·Number of species seen not on the target list:22;

·Number of species represented by only one individual seen:34;

·Number of species reported by others within the 5MR but missed: 4
(Red-necked Grebe, Franklin’s Gull, Black-legged Kittiwake, and
Nashville Warbler);

·Number of species heard only: 1 (Western Screech Owl).

Subject: [slocobirding] Great Egret - injured 12.30.19
A Great Egret just landed in the field behind my house, about 40 ft from me. As I looked up it was likely downing a lizard.
There’s something hanging from its throat but appears to be sticking out through the skin just under its bill. I couldn’t confirm the object as plant or animal. It was a few inches long, sort of orange and yellow.
The feathers in that area and lower down on the front of its neck are in poor condition. Many are missing.
The bird is flight capable and is still able to eat.
I had to encourage it to leave when it headed for my house, likely for more lizards.
There was a Great Egret next to my house a few days ago that flew when I stepped out the back door.
New yard bird.

Subject: [slocobirding] Pismo Black Scoter
An adult female BLACK SCOTER in a small flock of SURF SCOTERS just
outside the surf zone off the Pismo Creek outfall this morning was a
welcome surprise.  She actively preened with the loafing scoters before
something spooked them, the whole flock flying past Pismo pier toward
the Shell Beach cliffs.

Please, this is not a forum for politics, or non-San Luis Obispo related birding. This could quickly devolve into ugliness.

From: Brad Schram <gonebrdn...>
Subject: [slocobirding] White-faced Ibis, Pacific Wren
Birding Pismo Creek mouth this morning, in hopes of something new blown
in during the storm, proved disappointing because nothing seems to have
changed since last week.

Following the creek mouth prowl I was pleasantly surprised to find a
PACIFIC WREN in a willow and  German Ivy tangle along Pismo Creek behind
the Pismo water treatment facility.  Many tries along AG Creek, and at
the same location last winter, didn't produce one, and I was resigned to
missing it on my 2019 5 Mile Radius list.

Moving on to the Pismo State Beach Golf Course at the end of Grand Ave I
found the wintering juv. GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE & CACKLING GOOSE to
be still working the grass in loose association with the CANADA GOOSE
flock.  Young birders Liam and Kilian Hampl happened by, telling me that
they'd found a WHITE-FACED IBIS on the course earlier this morning!  I
was delighted to hear this, another bird missing from the 5MR thus far
this year.  This bird proved a little difficult, feeding in the tules in
a course pond, but finally revealed itself.

A surprising morning, two new birds for the 5MR this late in the year.
