Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Tropical Kingbird at The Great Park - 9 DEC
Late this afternoon (4:30p), there was a TROPICAL KINGBIRD at The Great
Park in Irvine. It was feeding and vocalizing around the Reflecting Ponds
with 4-5 other Cassin's Kingbirds, an adult male Vermilion Flycatcher, two
Black Phoebes and a Say's Phoebe. I only saw it for about 5 minutes before
it flew off to the field to the southwest. Not sure if this is a returning
bird from 2 years ago, but seems to be behaving the same way...

Location (GPS: 33.673263, -117.749555):

The Mountain Plover is on the breeding grounds at the end of the boardwalk. Only 30 feet inside the fence. Great views.

Park here "PCH Lot": https://goo.gl/maps/NgkJEj5DZArRYTJh9

Bird was seen around this area today -> GPS: 33.697119, -118.044379
https://goo.gl/maps/BB8RfDe9kRcosS1w8

It moves around a lot, so chances of it being in that nesting area are not
guaranteed, so you might have to use a scope and look around...

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Highlights from the San Joaquin Marsh walk - 8 DEC
We had about 10 folks that showed up this morning and braved the rain
chances. Species count was around 76. Not bad considering the weather. We
all got a little wet to start off, but overall it was a pleasant morning of
birding. Typical fall/winter species around. Some highlights included a
continuing adult male Vermilion Flycatcher along the edge of Pond 1. A
Virginia Rail was calling from Pond 1. A few "Myrtle" Yellow-rumped
Warblers were around Pond 1 as well. We all got to witness a Cassin's
Kingbird work down a large dragonfly (Common Green Darner). A male and
female Hooded Merganser were at the footbridge as well as a Least Bittern
that showed up for a few to see before it quickly vanished back into the
vast darkness...

Checklist below with the species and a few photos of the Cassin's Kingbird
enjoying the dragonfly!

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Some Comments on the Mountain Plover today at Bolsa Chica
This bird was reported twice on Dec 6 (see Edana's post) in the Least Tern Nesting Area at Bolsa Chica. I arrived at noon (Dec 7th) and saw Robert McNab who had a spotting scope. A Black-bellied Plover came in around 1 PM and the Mountain Plover was spotted a few minutes later by Bob. Unfortunately while he was calling around and I was setting up my camera  it must have flown out.  It returned to a sand bar just off shore sometime around 130 to 145 PM and was visible for about 20 minutes before disappearing again. The only photographs I could obtain was when it was on the sandbar. This is really at the limit of my lens setup so the photo on my Flickr site is for documentation. Better photos are available from the observers on the 6th. I understand it returned later at an even more distant sandbar. If it returns again to the nesting area that would obviously provide better viewing and in addition the lighting was quite good at 1 PM.

If I understand correctly reading eBird, it was also seen in the morning
around 8am yesterday, same location. Does anyone know how long it stayed in
the afternoon today? Did it fly in around 1pm, or was it just out of sight
the entire day?

Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Dark-eyed Junco (Gray-headed) - Mile Square Park
Very interesting. I suspect the Gray-headed Junco is a returnee, as I
photographed two of this subspecies in that general area last winter. One
had an extensively dark culmen like this bird, suggestive of the largely
sedentary "Red-backed" Junco subspecies (dorsalis) of SE Arizona/E New
Mexico. While birds like this have been noted with greater frequency in
southern California in recent years, they don't tend to exhibit other
dorsalis-like phenotypic traits, such as a contrasting whitish throat. The
question as to why we are seeing more of these odd birds is an interesting
one. Hopefully someone will write an article on this topic one of these
days.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Swamp Sparrow - Bart Spendlove Memorial Park
I found a Swamp Sparrow in the little wet ditch running below Bart
Spendlove Memorial Park in Mission Viejo, between the park and the railroad
tracks. The bird is predictably very secretive but it's staying in
basically the same spot on the southern end of the ditch and it goes
through bouts of calling frequently (how I first found it while pishing)
and being silent. There's also a Western Tanager here in the same general
area around the houses. I have not been able to cover the whole park as I
have the 2-year old with me and it's starting to sprinkle, so there could
be more rarities here than just these two birds if somebody spends more
time looking.

The sparrow was last seen approximately at 33.6086213, -117.6791307.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Starr Ranch 2020 Bird Banding Workshops
*Bird Banding Workshops at Starr Ranch Spring 2020*

*Beginning & Advanced Banding Workshops March 14-15 and March 21-22*

Audubon California’s 4000-acre Starr Ranch Sanctuary in southeast Orange County invites you to our spring bird banding workshops for adults. Starr Ranch Bird Observatory runs two long-term bird monitoring programs, one in winter and one during breeding season in spring and summer. We operate mist nets throughout the winter in order to examine the over-winter survivorship of migrant and resident bird populations on the Ranch. The MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) breeding season bird banding station is part of an international network of over 500 stations examining breeding bird populations. Because of the specialized nature of these workshops, we are asking that only serious students and potential Starr Ranch bird banding volunteers attend. The workshops will be taught by Starr Ranch ornithologist Robert Snowden, an experienced bander who has worked at multiple stations and is certified by the North American Banding Council. Space is limited.

*Beginning Bird Banding Workshop* – This workshop is for those with little or no bird banding experience. Participants will learn how to safely capture and release birds. They will learn how to hold, band, and take measurements on birds in the hand. Afternoon discussions will focus on bird identification, banding safety and ethics.

*Dates and Times* : March 14-15, 7:30 AM-3:30 PM daily

*Cost:* $300 or $325 if camping (BYO lunch, morning coffee & bagels provided)

*Advanced Bird Banding Workshop* – This workshop is for more experienced banders (banded at least 50 birds) or have taken the beginning workshop who want to take their skills to the next level. Participants will focus mainly on advanced ageing and sexing of birds in the hand. Afternoon discussions will focus on detailed analysis and understanding of the molt cycle and bird plumage characteristics, as well as advanced use of the Pyle guide.

*Dates and Times* : March 21-22 7:30 AM- 3:30 PM daily

*Cost:* $300 or $325 if camping (BYO lunch, morning coffee & bagels provided)

*To reserve your space please contact Sandy DeSimone at* *<sdesimone...>* ( <sdesimone...> ) *, 949-858-0309*

For questions about the workshops content contact: Robert at 949-858-0309 or <rsnowden...> ( <rsnowden...> )

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Costa's
An adult male Costa's Hummingbird was at my feeders this morning,
presumably the same bird back for his fourth winter here. As he was already
in adult plumage when I first saw him on January 21, 2017, this would make
him at least 5 years old. For the CBC, other than my own yard in past
winters I have also seen this bird hanging around at my neighborhood park,
Arroyo Park, where the Cleveland sage that my association planted a few
years ago have proved to be one of his favorites to visit.

A hybrid adult male Eurasian x American Wigeon was within 'upper'
Wintersburg Channel this afternoon. This could be the bird that was present
at Carr Park for the previous two winters, but has yet to be seen there
this winter. Perhaps of interest for the coastal CBC are two Hooded
Mergansers that were seen at a small golf course pond at the corner of
Graham and Warner on Tuesday.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Question from a visiting birder
Hello,
I will be traveling to Orange County for a work trip in mid February, staying in Dana Point. I won't have that much time for birding, but I'm hoping to be able to find a few hours here or there to get out and find some of the specialty species that people like me in the Midwest would get excited about (but that I'm sure you all find boring - that's how it goes, right?). I've spent a bit of time birding in California before, but have never gotten farther down south in the state past Monterey Bay. I won't have much time like I said, so I'm looking to focus on birds that I have a really good chance of finding vs. long shots that won't be a productive use of time.

As the plan stands right now, I won't be renting a car so am hoping to find some good spots to visit that are a relatively easy Uber/cab/Lyft ride from Dana Point (or I suppose walkable works too.) And I won't have much more than a few hours here or there to go birding. That said, feel free to attempt to convince me that I'm making a terrible mistake... if you are convincing enough I might consider adding an extra personal day on one end of my trip and/or renting a car if it makes sense.

Now to the important stuff. What am I looking for? Well, you all can tell me if I'm way off... but I'd love to find:
CALIFORNIA GNATCATCHER
GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW

From my own research, it looks like I might have a shot at the gnatcatcher at Dana Point Headlands Preserve. It looks like this should only be a short cab ride from where I'm staying. And the sparrows seem to be present at Moulton Meadows Park from what I can tell... a bit longer but still maybe not unreasonable cab ride. Unless there's lots of traffic that I don't know about...?

Does anyone have any experience with these birds in this area? I've never been to any of these places so any advice on where to specifically go at these locations or strategies/times/other things I should know to best try to find these specific species would be GREATLY appreciated. Feel free to reply to me directly so as not to clutter the list.

Now, beyond these two birds, I might as well mention that some other species that I'd be interested in but I probably won't be able to find because they are total long shots and/or random low likelihood of success would be:Ridgeway's railLewis's woodpeckerRed-breasted sapsuckerRed-naped sapsuckerHermit warblerMountain quailVaux's swiftGlaucous-winged gull(Obviously I'll be very tempted if by some miracle the Red-footy booby or Greater Pewee are still there in Feb too but I'm sure they won't be.)
Before you all proclaim that I've lost my mind, trust me... I know... I'm not at all expecting to be able to find ANY of these birds... I really only want to find the gnatcatcher and the sparrow. I know that these other birds are a ridiculous list of rarities that I probably won't even have a reasonable way to search for, let alone actually find. But I'm just listing them in case you know more than me and say "hey there's actually a really good place to go nearby to Dana Point for one of these....", etc.

Beyond this, any other information or suggestions you have for birding around Dana Point and/or other local species I may not have thought of but would be interested in finding in Feb are very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for any assistance. (And again, feel free to reply privately to avoid cluttering the list.)

Best,Evan GraffChicago

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Orange County RBA: December 5, 2019
RBA

* California

* Orange County

* December 5, 2019

* CAOC19.12.05

This is the Orange County, CA weekly Rare Bird Alert (RBA) and local events
summary. California Bird Records Committee (CBRC) review species are
capitalized and marked with asterisks below. All documentation of review
species should be forwarded to the CBRC secretary, Tom Benson, at
<secretary...>

BIRDS MENTIONED

Pacific Golden-Plover

Laughing Gull

Franklin’s Gull

Glaucous-winged Gull

*RED-FOOTED BOOBY*

Little Blue Heron

*TRICOLORED HERON*

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

*GREATER PEWEE*

Pacific-slope Flycatcher

Dusky-capped Flycatcher

Brown Thrasher

Black-and-white Warbler

Tennessee Warbler

Palm Warbler

Three PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVERS were seen at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach
in Seal Beach on November 30, where this species has wintered for years.

A LAUGHING GULL was photographed up the beach from the Newport Pier on
December 2, where it laughed that Ryan’s morning beach survey did not go
down far enough so that he could find the bird himself.

A FRANKLIN’S GULL continued at Centennial Park in Santa Ana through
December 3.

A GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULL, unusual so far inland, was also at Centennial Park
in Santa Ana from November 29-December 1.

A *RED-FOOTED BOOBY* continued on the jetty at Corona del Mar through
December 3. This is a CBRC review species, meaning documentation of any
sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at <secretary...>
.

A juvenile LITTLE BLUE HERON was in Newport Back Bay in Newport Beach
through November 29, where it was last photographed below the boardwalk.

A *TRICOLORED HERON* continued in Upper Newport Bay in Newport Beach
through December 2. This is a CBRC review species, meaning documentation of
any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...>

An immature YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER continued at Irvine Regional Park in
Orange through November 30 between Lots A and B and around “Sycamore Hill.”

A *GREATER PEWEE* first found at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain
Valley on November 21 continued through December 3. Its favorite places
seem to be along the red fence where the maintenance shed is in the
southeast corner of the park, as well as up around the ballfields,
essentially ranging mostly within the southeast area and thankfully at
least mostly not out on the golf course. This is a CBRC review species,
meaning documentation of any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...> If accepted, this would be only the fifth
record for Orange County and the first in 28 years.

A PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER was at Mile Square Regional park in Fountain
Valley on November 30, in the vicinity of the maintenance shed in the
southeast corner of the park.

A DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER was photographed at San Joaquin Wildlife
Sanctuary in Irvine on December 1 in the vicinity of the Audubon House.

A BROWN THRASHER was found at Aurora Park in Mission Viejo on December 2
and continued through December 4. The bird has been found pretty reliably
in the southeast section of the park where the large Brazilian pepper tree
is growing near the top of the windy trail down to the lower section. It
hangs out in the tree and skulks through the acacia groundcover. This is
the 7th record for Orange County and the first since 1993.

A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at Westminster Memorial Park in Westminster
on November 29 in the general vicinity of the Lakeside Chapel, another was
at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley on December 1 in the
vicinity of ballfield #3, and a third(!), presumably returning for its
second winter, was at Aurora Park in Mission Viejo on December 3 near the
west side of the park in the oak woodland.


A TENNESSEE WARBLER was at a private residence in Huntington Beach on
December 1.

A PALM WARBLER continued at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley
through December 1. It was seen near the northeast side of the north lake,
near the corner of Euclid and Edinger.


LOCAL EVENTS

CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

Sea and Sage Audubon’s (three) Christmas Bird Counts are fast approaching.
The Christmas Bird Counts are always held between Dec. 14th & Jan. 5th.
This annual bird count encompasses the United States and Canada, as well as
Central and South America, the Pacific Islands, West Indies, and Bermuda.
The data collected helps scientists learn more about the status and
distribution of our birds and played a key role in the recent study
describing the loss of approximately 3 billion birds across North America
over the last 50 years. Here in Orange County, we have three different
Christmas Bird Counts. Please contact the Circle Compiler for more
information and to sign up.



NE (Inland) CBC - Dec. 15, 2019 - Contact Doug Lithgow, <DMLithgow...>

San Juan Capistrano (South County) CBC - Dec. 21, 2019 - Contact Darrell
Wilson, <Darrellwilson...>

Coastal CBC - Dec. 29, 2019 - Contact Bettina Eastman, <bettinae24...>

All three of the Christmas Bird Counts are sponsored by Sea & Sage Audubon.
Everyone is welcome to participate, from beginners to old hands. Those of
you who are less experienced can help by tallying the birds. Most sections
begin in the early morning and end as the sun sets. After each count,
participants gather together for supper and do a general tally of the count.

For more information please go to the Sea and Sage website:
seaandsageaudubon.org and click on Christmas Bird Count (CBC).


UPCOMING EVENTS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE ADVANCE RESERVATIONS

The monthly Nature Walk at San Joaquin Marsh will take place on December 7
from 9:00am to 10:30am. Meet at the Audubon House.

The monthly Bird Walk at San Joaquin Marsh will take place on December 8
from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Meet at the Audubon House.


UPCOMING EVENTS THAT REQUIRE ADVANCE RESERVATIONS

The Upper Newport Bay pontoon boat trips are held on the third Wednesday of
every month but are full until February. You can email Nancy Kenyon at
<nancykenyon...> to sign up for the January trip or later.

The Winter 2020 pelagic trip will take place on January 11 from 6:30am to
3:00pm. Email Nancy Kenyon at <nancykenyon...> to sign up.


BIRDING WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES



Sylvia Gallagher’s “Learning California Bird Sounds” class will run for 10
weeks beginning in early January. Enrollment opened on December 2. This
course is highly recommended if you have difficulty with bird sounds. The
course flyer is here:
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/Classes/LearningCABirdSounds.pdf



*****************************************************



The Orange County RBA and events summary is produced weekly by Ryan
Winkleman and Jeff Bray in collaboration with Doug Willick. Sightings of
rare birds can be posted to the OrangeCountyBirding listserv, emailed
directly to Jeff Bray (<jbray4913...>) and/or Ryan Winkleman (
<rswinkleman...>), and/or submitted to eBird (
http://ebird.org/content/ebird). Any supporting details (descriptions,
photos, audio recordings, etc.) of rare sightings that are not already
disclosed on the listserv or on eBird should also be emailed to Ryan
Winkleman separately for consideration to be mentioned in the current
quarterly report for North American Birds.



Those sightings that are included in this summary generally include those
that are considered rare (regionally or seasonally) for Orange County based
on "The Birds of Orange County: Status and Distribution" (Hamilton and
Willick), "Birds of Southern California" (Garrett and Dunn), and/or more
contemporary changes in local or regional status and distribution. Rarities
that regularly or seasonally occur at a particular location, such as
annually wintering rarities on Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, may or
may not be included in this digest, but reports of these same species
occurring at other, atypical locations throughout the county may be
included. We don't include hybrids, subspecies, introduced or exotic birds,
or in most cases and for no real reason, geese. All bird reports are vetted
to the extent possible prior to each publication, but in the interest of
sharing information, the accuracy of any given report cannot always be
guaranteed, nor can the presence of any given bird for those who choose to
chase after them.



Information on upcoming local events is taken largely from the Sea and Sage
Audubon website (http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/). Sea and Sage Audubon
is based out of the Audubon House at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine. They sponsor a number of public field trips, special birding
events, conservation lectures, and social gatherings throughout the year.
Information regarding upcoming local events should be considered accurate
at the time of this posting. However, for the most current information
please refer to the field trip list on the Sea and Sage Audubon website at
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/FieldTrips/FieldTripSchedule.html. It is
also recommended that you refer to that website immediately prior to
engaging in any field trip to confirm that trips are still occurring. If
you know of additional upcoming events that are not sponsored directly by
Sea and Sage Audubon, please email Ryan Winkleman and/or Jeff Bray for
inclusion. #RBA

Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Brown Thrasher continues at Aurora Park
I just noticed something looking thru my photos, that was not obvious to me
in the field.
This bird seems to have a single tail feather. Moult?
I recall a year ago, there was a BRTH in LA at malage park that I chased
that also had no tail, or only a single feather. At the time there was
suspicion (by me, and maybe some others?) that the bird had been got by
cats, as someone had left feeders out all over the place. Now I'm puzzled,
since this OC bird looks the same.
Anyhow, wondering if anyone more experienced with these birds has any
thoughts. Like maybe the likelihood this could be that same bird? Or do
these birds have tails, and I just don't see it?
I dunno, just weird.

Pics of current bird here.

This afternoon between squalls, around 1:15 myself and one other birder
viewed the bird at the top of the large pepper tree from midway along the
ramp that leads between upper and lower levels of the park. I had seen it
shortly before that slinking around between shrubs.
The bird is extremely sketchy, so my unsolicited advice would be to anyone
looking for it, just stand quietly and wait for it.

The Brown Thrasher was finally seen and photographed by another birder up in the pepper tree where the pin was dropped around 4:25 PM. However, fading light and tons of branches made good views difficult.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] BROWN THRASHER Aurora Park Maybe
With only a narrow window of time to search, I made a predawn attempt at the Brown Thrasher. I did not see it, but I heard a spontaneous and brief series of “chup” calls at 0620 in the vicinity of 33.62549,-117.65440. I think this is close to yesterday’s location by Maury’s description.
The quality of these calls were harsher, and louder than the surrounding Hermit Thrush calls. I think what I heard is good for the bird given my experience with Browns as a yard bird for the last 3 years in NE Texas.

Good luck,

As my son used to say when he was 4 years old: It was an akskident.
I was at the northeast corner of the park, hearing the Dusky capped
Flycatcher, when Tom Wurster called me and told me "You're standing in the
wrong part of the park." Suspecting that what he means is I better get to
the place he's describing if I want to see the Greater Pewee, I better run
to my car and drive over to the correct part of the park which was
1.41421356237 miles away (walking distance, as opposed to 2.000000 miles
driving distance). I closed out eBird list I was working on so that
wouldn't count mileage while I'm driving a car. I didn't realize that I had
failed to put it into eBird. When I got to the Peewee location I told a
couple of people and I was under the assumption that others would return to
the exact opposite corner of the park and hear it or see the Dusky capped
Flycatcher.
Trish, your complaint is valid.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] palm warbler
After an unconscionable period of dawdling, I finally went to Mile Square
Park to seek a rare flycatcher. As I received secondhand information
(hearsay, no less!!!) that the Dusky-capped Flycatcher was recently present
on the Big Island, I spent some time this afternoon whistling and pishing
my way around the NE corner of the park. Alas, I must mournfully report
that I did not encounter said species, but I did find a Palm Warbler and
Yellow Warbler in the sycamore just north of the island. When I left, the
Palm was feeding in the nearby white-flowering eucalyptus, and the Yellow
flew to the island, a spot which seems to have a wintering Yellow nearly
every year. Pics of these birds and the recent adult Black-and-White
Warbler at WMP are at the link below:

Birders,

For those of you who do not subscribe to Ebird, I woke this morning to find
in my daily rare bird alert, a report from Tom Miko of Dusky-capped
Flycatcher at Mile Square park. If anyone is around the park today, I have
linked a copy of his checklist to share with others if you need something
to chase.
https://ebird.org/checklist/S61868557

Jim Pike did report seeing this species about 10 days ago, so maybe it's
wintering very secretively.
I also know Tom very *very* *very often* posts RFI's for bird info., so I
was a little surprised he was not as quick to share this info. and details
with others.
Happy birding. And of course, If anyone does find this bird, please share
to the group.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] A few comments on Sundays Greater Pewee Observations at Mile Square Regional Park
A few comments on the observations of the Greater Pewee today at Mile Square Park.

Clearly many have seen the bird over the past two days helped I am sure by the posts at this site.

I arrived early (730 AM per Jeff’s suggestion in his post) and the bird was at its

apparent usual location near the maintenance yard (on the chain link fence).

Steve Morris came by and the bird flew into some nearby pines where it stayed for about 1/2 an hour before flying back towards the yard. The most interesting  behavior was its taking food from the bark, and its chasing of a Phoebe in a possble territorial dispute as recounted by Steve in his ebird post. Many good pictures were obtained by many observers. I put some of mine (no Phoebe chase but some bug eating) plus a movie on my Flickr page

Myself and Carl Jackson and another young fellow all had the Greater Pewee
at

GPS: 33.716856, -117.941746

in Mile Square Park, Fountain Valley during the period of 1:30 pm to past
2:00 pm

This is the southern most - western most parking lot at Mile Square Park
bordering along Warner Avenue in the overall south east quadrant of Mile
Square.

A large very full pine at the eastern edge of this east-west parking lot is
where it spent a great deal of time, but a Black Phoebe and the Pewee
couldn't just get along so it would fly westward to a sycamore and then
further west to an Eucalyptus tree.

This parking lot is also within visual of the prior mentioned "red fence"
which you can clearly see standing along this parking area.

Been working thru images and just a couple are up on my website thus far
but by the end of day will be completed.

The greater pewee was heard clearly by some roughly around 11am, in the
pines around the parking lot adjacent to ball field 3 and restroom block 4.

However I’m not aware of any sight records since around 8am, where I hear
it was seen at the “typical spot”, about 600 ft SW of ball field 3. These
are two distinct locations for those still not sure.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Fall 2019 North American Birds
Birders, photographers, or whatever,

The official Fall 2019 reporting period for *North American Birds* has
ended and over the next few weeks I'll be wrapping up my draft of Orange
County's quarterly report. I primarily use eBird, this listserv, and our
own weekly rare bird alerts to do so. If you have additional information
about a rare bird (start or stop dates, location, etc.) that has not been
previously publicized, please let me know. Additionally, if you noticed any
odd trends in bird status and distribution this fall or building over time,
please let me know. For instance, there seems to be an odd dearth of Cedar
Waxwings and White-crowned Sparrows in the places I've been birding lately
here in interior South County. I don't know where the birds are 🤷‍♂️.
Population-level stuff like that is worth mentioning in these reports.

I generally extend out my period of records for 15 days into the following
month so as to account for any late birds or notable trends to follow, so I
will continue accepting fall reports through December 15. My official dates
for the report will be from August 16-December 15. Please send me any
notable reports per the above within the next couple weeks, if you have
anything additional to add.

Thanks for your help, I couldn't write these reports without the
contributions of the people who find birds here in Orange County.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Details from the Greater Pewee this morning...
Wanted to provide you all with a bit more detail of the encounter this
morning. Having heard through the grapevine, that another birder had
photographed this bird on 21 November in the area near where the Overbird
was last year, I decided to check that area out this morning. As I arrived
to the park, I heard the bird singing as soon as I got out of my car. Took
a little bit of time to locate it, but it finally made it's first
appearance for me on the fence, right where that red fence meets the
chain-link fence. It was calling and singing often, thankfully, as that
made it quite easy to keep track of until it left the area shortly before
10:00am. It spent a fair amount of time around the pine trees between the
parking lot and that fence line. It was refound further to the east near
the corner of Euclid and Warner sometime after 11:00am.

Checklist below, with some photos.. The bird was quite friendly!

Rick Fisher just pointed out a red naped sapsucker, then the yellow-bellied

red-breasted sapsuckers here at Irvine Regional Park all between parking

the exit Road out of the park and then the circle back and land on the
sides of multiple Liquid Amber trees throughout the area. They are in

Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Greater Pewee at Mile Square now
Just a bit of an update: the bird seems to have flown off around 10:00am. I
guess it heard that Curtis was on his way to see it... (Sorry Matt!)

We’ve been looking around all over the park for the bird. It haven’t had
any luck so far.

My suggestion would be to look again at this same location in the morning
around 7:30a. It was very active the entire time we were there from 8:00a -
9:50a.

Good luck!

A second-year male Black-and-White Warbler was in the exact same spot he
was in last winter at Westminster Memorial Park. Take the main entrance
road to near Lakeside Chapel, and then turn right. It was in magnolia and
ash trees along the road a hundred yards down. Another nice surprise there
was a Western Tanager, given that I saw so few in the desert earlier in the
fall.

For anyone willing to brave the rain and possible mudslides, I just had the
Tricolored Heron sitting in a tree in the water about twenty feet from the
road just up the road from the midway parking lot. Be careful, though. The
road was pretty washed out in a couple of spots, and it's probably only
going to get worse.

🦃 *RBA *- Thanksgiving Edition 🦃

* California
* Orange County
* November 28, 2019
* CAOC19.11.28

This is the Orange County, CA weekly Rare Bird Alert (RBA) and local events
summary. California Bird Records Committee (CBRC) review species are
capitalized and marked with asterisks below. All documentation of review
species should be forwarded to the CBRC secretary, Tom Benson, at
<secretary...>

*BIRDS MENTIONED*

Eurasian Wigeon
Common Goldeneye
Franklin’s Gull
*RED-FOOTED BOOBY*
Little Blue Heron
*TRICOLORED HERON*
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
Zone-tailed Hawk
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
Dusky-capped Flycatcher
*GREATER PEWEE*

Palm Warbler

A EURASIAN WIGEON continued at Huntington Central Park in Huntington Beach
through November 23, where it was last seen in the pond by the library.
Note that this is an apparent immature male (i.e., is more female like) and
does NOT look like an easily identifiable adult male. Look for the more
rufous-colored head compared to American Wigeons.

A COMMON GOLDENEYE continued at Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach
through November 26. It’s been seen in the Wintersburg Channel.

A FRANKLIN’S GULL was at Carl Thornton Park in Santa Ana on November 26 and
was refound in nearby Centennial Park on November 27.

A *RED-FOOTED BOOBY* continued on the jetty at Corona del Mar through
November 27. This is a CBRC review species, meaning documentation of any
sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at <secretary...>
.

A juvenile LITTLE BLUE HERON was in Newport Back Bay in Newport Beach on
November 24 and continued through November 27. November 24-26 it was seen
near the Big Canyon parking lot, but on November 27, it was seen near the
Muth Center. This is likely the same bird that was seen recently along the
Santa Ana River just a few miles away.

A *TRICOLORED HERON* continued in Upper Newport Bay in Newport Beach
through November 25. It was seen on multiple occasions this last week in
the vicinity of the Back Bay Science Center. This is a CBRC review species,
meaning documentation of any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...>

A SY YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine through November 23 on Pond B. A HY bird was at Dana Point Harbor on
November 23. Seen in the Magnolia Tree next to the Nordhavn building.

A ZONE-TAILED HAWK continued in Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo
through November 25, where it is usually seen flying over and near the Ford
dealership. Another (new) juvenile bird was photographed over Irvine
Regional Park in Orange on November 25. This makes at least 3 different
individuals that have been photographed in the county this fall.

An immature YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER continued at Irvine Regional Park in
Orange through November 24 between Lots A and B and around “Sycamore Hill”.

A DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER was photographed at Mile Square Regional Park in
Fountain Valley on November 22. Seen in the NE quadrant of the park between
Palm Island and Edinger Ave.

A *GREATER PEWEE* was found at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley
on November 26. It was photographed in the northeast corner of the Baker
Driving Range around 33.728383, -117.942941. This is a CBRC review species,
meaning documentation of any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...> If accepted, this would be only the fifth
record for Orange County and the first in 28 years.

A GRAY FLYCATCHER was at Irvine Regional Park in Orange on November 23 and
continued on November 24. Seen between lots C and D.

A PLUMBEOUS VIREO was at Yorba Regional Park in Anaheim on November 26. It
was seen in sycamores and pines along the southern edge of the park,
towards the eastern half (roughly near Parking Lot P).

A SAGE THRASHER continued at Richard T. Steed Memorial Park in San Clemente
on November 22, near the entrance to the baseball fields.

A VESPER SPARROW was at Irvine Regional Park in Orange on November 23. Seen
near Lot E with Lark Sparrows.

A GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE was at Harriett Wieder Regional Park in Huntington
Beach on November 21 and continued through November 26. Another bird was at
Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach on November 25.

A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER continued at Irvine Regional Park in Orange on
November 24 on the eastern side of Sycamore Hill.

A NORTHERN PARULA was at Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point on November
23 and continued through November 26. It was seen in the eucalyptus trees
next to the golf practice cage.

A PALM WARBLER was at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley on
November 24 and continued through November 26. It was seen near the
northeast side of the north lake, near the corner of Euclid and Edinger.

*****************************************************

The Orange County RBA and events summary is produced weekly by Ryan
Winkleman and Jeff Bray in collaboration with Doug Willick. Sightings of
rare birds can be posted to the OrangeCountyBirding listserv, emailed
directly to Jeff Bray (<jbray4913...>) and/or Ryan Winkleman (
<rswinkleman...>), and/or submitted to eBird (
http://ebird.org/content/ebird). Any supporting details (descriptions,
photos, audio recordings, etc.) of rare sightings that are not already
disclosed on the listserv or on eBird should also be emailed to Ryan
Winkleman separately for consideration to be mentioned in the current
quarterly report for North American Birds.

Those sightings that are included in this summary generally include those
that are considered rare (regionally or seasonally) for Orange County based
on "The Birds of Orange County: Status and Distribution" (Hamilton and
Willick), "Birds of Southern California" (Garrett and Dunn), and/or more
contemporary changes in local or regional status and distribution. Rarities
that regularly or seasonally occur at a particular location, such as
annually wintering rarities on Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, may or
may not be included in this digest, but reports of these same species
occurring at other, atypical locations throughout the county may be
included. We don't include hybrids, subspecies, introduced or exotic birds,
or in most cases and for no real reason, geese. All bird reports are vetted
to the extent possible prior to each publication, but in the interest of
sharing information, the accuracy of any given report cannot always be
guaranteed, nor can the presence of any given bird for those who choose to
chase after them.

Information on upcoming local events is taken largely from the Sea and Sage
Audubon website (http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/). Sea and Sage Audubon
is based out of the Audubon House at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine. They sponsor a number of public field trips, special birding
events, conservation lectures, and social gatherings throughout the year.
Information regarding upcoming local events should be considered accurate
at the time of this posting. However, for the most current information
please refer to the field trip list on the Sea and Sage Audubon website at
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/FieldTrips/FieldTripSchedule.html. It is
also recommended that you refer to that website immediately prior to
engaging in any field trip to confirm that trips are still occurring. If
you know of additional upcoming events that are not sponsored directly by
Sea and Sage Audubon, please email Ryan Winkleman and/or Jeff Bray for
inclusion. #RBA

In what is apparently going to be an invasion year for Southeastern Arizona

If correct this would be the first Greater Pewee in Orange County since

To clarify the "now" part, this bird was reported to eBird earlier this
morning as being found yesterday by Brett Badeaux at Carl Thornton Park.

As a general rule please remember that not everybody uses eBird so it is
best to put "continuing" birds into context if they haven't been reported
to the listserv previously.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] GT Towhee Wieder?
Hello,
Reading through the multiple eBird reports for the Green tailed Towhee at
Harriet Wieder Park, I have not been able to figure out where exactly this
bird has been seen by multiple people. If somebody could give a description
that would be nice. I just spent an hour slowly wandering around
everywhere, but there are a lot of kids running around and playing. I also
went outside the fenced-off play area, out in the grass and weeds, equally
without success.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Northern Parula Still Here 11/25/2019
Hi Group,

The Northern Parula was seen again this morning by the clubhouse of the Monarch Beach Resort Golf Course. It was in eucs by the practice driving range cages. This is on the edge of the parking lot. “Monarch Beach” is actually in Dana Point. The Parula spent the time I watched it in the shady parts of eucs.

The clubhouse has a public parking lot. In the past they make it look like it’s only for golfers, forcing you to ask for valet service. But you could with some sharp turning drive into the lot. I’ve complained and probably others as well about that temporary sign they had up, and now the entry sign (on a temporary post) says “Public Welcome” but then they try to get you to use valet service but do note that the back of the small lot has “limited self-parking”. You have to make a sharp turn around the temporary barriers to enter the lot yourself and go to the back.

An afternoon walk with Kim and Kevin Reger at Mile Square Park turned up a

pine trees to the east. This is the fourth record for the park.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Vermilion flycatcher, et al, at SJWS, 21 Nov 2019
Greetings,

Yesterday (21 Nov 2019), while leading an Environmental Biology class field trip at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary between 1-3 pm, I saw a vermilion flycatcher fly into a cottonwood tree. Got great looks at it, since it was close by. Really took me by surprise.

The spot was along Pond 1, at the viewing “cut-out loop" on the southeast side
(map: https://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/SJWS/SJWSmapandrules.pdf <https://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/SJWS/SJWSmapandrules.pdf>)

Other birds seen:

Northern mockingbird - 1 in parking lot near Audubon house
Great egrets - 1 in Pond E, 1 in Pond B
Cinnamon teal - several in Pond C
Northern shoveler - several in Pond C
Green-winged teal - few in Pond C
Bufflehead - few in Pond C
Killdeer - 1 on shore at northeast end of Pond C
America coot - few in Ponds E & C
Great blue heron - 1 in Pond B, caught a fish along the southwest shore
Black-crowned night heron - 1 in Pond B along northwest shore
American white pelican - several on island in center of Pond 1, a few in flight
Terns (species not noted) - about 6 or so, mostly above Pond 1
Double-crested cormorant - surprisingly few, most on island in center of Pond 1
Pied-billed grebe - 4, in Pond 1
Clark’s or western grebes (didn’t determine which) - about 4 in Pond 1
Common yellowthroat - saw 1 around southwest side of Pond 1, more heard than seen
Northern harrier - 2 seen over Pond 1, one of them chased off a red-tailed hawk
Turkey vulture - about 6 overhead
Osprey - none seen by us, but a photographer said he saw one

It’s still early, but winter species are starting to show up.

Birders,

After hours of effort this morning at Irvine Regional Park, four doggedly persistent birders finally had satisfactory views of the continuing Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. It is a young male sporting obvious remnants of juvenile plumage. It ranged widely across the full east - west dimensions of the Sycamore Hill area. More details in the ebird checklist below

A EURASIAN WIGEON was at Huntington Central Park in Huntington Beach from
November 15-19, where it was last seen in the pond by the library. Note
that this is an apparent immature male (i.e., is more female like) and does
NOT look like an easily identifiable adult male. Look for the more
rufous-colored head compared to American Wigeons.

A COMMON GOLDENEYE continued at The Great Park in Irvine through November
15 at the reflecting ponds.

A presumably continuing out-of-place RED-BREASTED MERGANSER was on the
Upper Santa Ana River between Tustin and Lakeview on November 17.

A *RED-FOOTED BOOBY* was found on the jetty at Corona del Mar on November
16 and continued through November 20. This is a CBRC review species,
meaning documentation of any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...>

A *TRICOLORED HERON* was last reported in Upper Newport Bay in Newport
Beach on November 18. It was seen on multiple occasions this last week in
the vicinity of the Back Bay Science Center. This is a CBRC review species,
meaning documentation of any sightings should be forwarded to Tom Benson at
<secretary...>

A SY YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine through November 20 on Pond B.

A ZONE-TAILED HAWK continued in Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo
through November 20, where it is usually seen flying over and near the Ford
dealership. On November 20 it was seen flying in the vicinity of Lake
Mission Viejo.

An immature YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER was photographed at Irvine Regional
Park in Orange on November 16 between Lots A and B and apparently continued
through November 21.

A PACIFIC WREN was at Huntington Central Park in Huntington Beach from
November 15-16, generally along the north side of "the island."

A SAGE THRASHER was at Richard T. Steed Memorial Park in San Clemente on
November 19, near the entrance to the baseball fields.

A YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD was at South Junior High School in Anaheim on
November 14.

An OVENBIRD returned for its second winter at Golden West College in
Huntington Beach, where it was found on November 17 in the trees northwest
of the amphitheatre.

A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at Fairview Park in Costa Mesa on November 17
in the grassy picnic area on the western side of the park. Another bird was
at Irvine Regional Park in Orange on November 18 on the eastern side of
Sycamore Hill.

A PAINTED REDSTART was at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley from
November 14-18, where many people saw it in the trees along the fence line
between the soccer field and golf course.

LOCAL EVENTS

BIRDING WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES

Sylvia Gallagher’s “Learning California Bird Sounds” class will run for 10
weeks beginning in early January. Enrollment opens on December 2. Highly
recommended if you have difficulty with bird sounds, this class helped me
immensely when I was a beginning birder. The course flyer is here:
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/Classes/LearningCABirdSounds.pdf

*****************************************************

The Orange County RBA and events summary is produced weekly by Ryan
Winkleman and Jeff Bray in collaboration with Doug Willick. Sightings of
rare birds can be posted to the OrangeCountyBirding listserv, emailed
directly to Jeff Bray (<jbray4913...>) and/or Ryan Winkleman (
<rswinkleman...>), and/or submitted to eBird (
http://ebird.org/content/ebird). Any supporting details (descriptions,
photos, audio recordings, etc.) of rare sightings that are not already
disclosed on the listserv or on eBird should also be emailed to Ryan
Winkleman separately for consideration to be mentioned in the current
quarterly report for North American Birds.

Those sightings that are included in this summary generally include those
that are considered rare (regionally or seasonally) for Orange County based
on "The Birds of Orange County: Status and Distribution" (Hamilton and
Willick), "Birds of Southern California" (Garrett and Dunn), and/or more
contemporary changes in local or regional status and distribution. Rarities
that regularly or seasonally occur at a particular location, such as
annually wintering rarities on Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, may or
may not be included in this digest, but reports of these same species
occurring at other, atypical locations throughout the county may be
included. We don't include hybrids, subspecies, introduced or exotic birds,
or in most cases and for no real reason, geese. All bird reports are vetted
to the extent possible prior to each publication, but in the interest of
sharing information, the accuracy of any given report cannot always be
guaranteed, nor can the presence of any given bird for those who choose to
chase after them.

Information on upcoming local events is taken largely from the Sea and Sage
Audubon website (http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/). Sea and Sage Audubon
is based out of the Audubon House at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine. They sponsor a number of public field trips, special birding
events, conservation lectures, and social gatherings throughout the year.
Information regarding upcoming local events should be considered accurate
at the time of this posting. However, for the most current information
please refer to the field trip list on the Sea and Sage Audubon website at
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/FieldTrips/FieldTripSchedule.html. It is
also recommended that you refer to that website immediately prior to
engaging in any field trip to confirm that trips are still occurring. If
you know of additional upcoming events that are not sponsored directly by
Sea and Sage Audubon, please email Ryan Winkleman and/or Jeff Bray for
inclusion. #RBA

I have not seen photographs of this bird but I'd rather have people mad at
me for posting this, than have people miss what would be a good bird. I am
forwarding this separately to the Orange County list because people who
live in Orange County live relatively close to San Pedro. Normally I would
not post a Los Angeles County bird on the Orange County server. My
apologies if I offend anybody.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Red-footed Booby at the Newport Harbor/Corona del Mar jetty
Just an update to Donna Heim's report on Sunday mid-day. There were several birders present at the jetty on the east side of the Newport Harbor mouth (which is accessed from Corona del Mar State Beach) on Sunday afternoon. Between all those present, we had the bird in view from roughly about 2:00pm through at least 3:30pm (and the bird was still present when Tom Wurster and I left at around 3:30). During this entire time the Red-footed Booby was perched on, or near, the top of the jetty that extends out from Corona del Mar State Beach, roughly about 2/3 the distance out towards the tip of the jetty. There was quite a number of people present in the area, including on the jetty Sunday afternoon, though the bird seemed surprisingly tolerant. The bird flushed at least once during the time we were there (presumably by people going out the jetty), but it ended up flying around and landing back on the same jetty. Due to the distance to the bird (from the base of the jetty), a scope is really necessary to see much in the way of field marks on the bird. The lighting (sun angle) was actually not bad in the mid-afternoon, as one is looking pretty much due south (if the bird remains on the Corona del Mar side). If the bird happens to fly across and perch on the west-side jetty (i.e., on the west side of Newport Harbor mouth), the lighting would definitely be fairly harsh if viewing in the afternoon from the Corona del Mar jetty.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] “Dusk Patrol” Canada Geese count
I did a “dusk patrol” count this evening of Canada Geese from Bolsa Chica St. and Robinwood, one of the entries to my tract.  I have seen them taking off at dusk from the channel along Bolsa Chica St. or leaving the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, and heading in the direction of Huntington Central Park, most likely to spend the night on Huntington Lake.  Since it was so nice tonight, I decided it was a good evening to try for a count.  I got to the intersection and started my count at 5:01 and stayed for 28 minutes.  Immediately after I started, I saw some large flocks of the geese coming over.  I was able to count a group of 50 and do some estimating of them at first using that as a reference, then after it slowed, counting them individually as they flew over in smaller groups.  They came from a long way across the refuge and all heading in the same direction.  This evening, there seemed to be some geese in the channel (saw some fly in to the channel), but only a few left from there).  My total was 628 Canada Geese.  The only problem with that location is the noise from all the vehicle traffic going by on Bolsa Chica Street.

I scoped the booby from about 12 Noon to 12:30, and took distant pictures
from the beach at Corona Del Mar, but lighting wasn't good for bill color -
too bright and misty. I hope to return another morning this week since
light at 10 am or so probably would have been better. A few beachgoers were
hopping up on the jetty rocks and walking out toward the end to fish while
the bird was there.

Hi, just wanted to report a good raptor spot. Visited like 3 times in the morning before college tennis tournament start each day last week. At Vista point(entrance to Eastbluff) you can watch at least 5 raptors. Plus Osprey a bit further down before the first overlook(0.25 miles?), that's 6. Vulture, Red-tailed, Harrier, Osprey, White-tailed Kite, Kestrel.
At high tide shorebirds forage at the flooded field right next to you. Tallied about 60 species.

The Ovenbird has returned for another winter to Golden West College in
Huntington Beach. It again pished into the trees above the dirt berm at the
NW end of the amphitheater in the NE quadrant of the campus. Whereas last
year I was eventually able to track down the loud TCHOOP calls and get a
look at the bird, it remained unseen for me this time around. If anyone
gets some photos of this bird, please share them with the group.

Jim,

Based on the photos Mark took, it's definitely a different bird from the
Bolsa one, although it could be the same one that was at San Joaquin
Wildlife Sanctuary on 15 Oct since it has been at Upper Newport Bay for
several weeks.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Painted Redstart Continued at MSRP Saturday afternoon
I arrived at Mile Square Regional Park just before 1 PM at the location described by Jim Pike in his 11/14 post. Fortunately at 1 PM the soccer game, that Trish alluded to in her earlier post, ended which also eliminated the possibility of being hit by shots that missed the goal. The Painted Redstart appeared in the upper portion of the relatively open Eucalyptus around 100, 120, and 140 PM. Two of the times it flew in from the left and exited towards the right. It stayed about a minute. I left around 2PM. A few shots can be found at

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Vermilion flycatcher at Fairhaven cemetery
[Edited Message Follows]
[Reason: I stand corrected: the VEFL at Fairhaven was actually a Say’s phoebe, my bad.]

Just got back from the Fairhaven/Santa Ana Cemeteries, where I’d hoped to find the clay-colored sparrows that sometimes winter there.  That didn’t happen, but I did find a female vermillion flycatcher, southwest of the mausoleum on the Fairhaven side.  It spent most of the time perched atop a tall sprinkler while I watched it.  Also of note were at least six Northern flickers, and a brightly plumaged Townsend’s warbler.  All of the bird activity was on the Fairhaven side SW of the mausoleum; too much human activity on the Santa Ana side.  No pics, sorry.

Off the top of my head I'm reasonably sure this is the first actual stakeout for this species in Orange County, assuming the bird stays where it is. Whomever would still like it for a county bird, this may be your best chance...

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] The Dawn Patrol
A crisp November morning,  six AM, and the emerging dawn slowly reveals a thousand Canada Geese beginning to stir from their overnight stay on Huntington Lake.  The growing light from the east signals the sun is soon coming and the soft honks, barks and calls are picking up. The mist rises off the water obscuring the full extent of the large flock across the lake. Shapes emerge and move slowly in small groups back and forth and then disappear back into the mask.   The occasional individual barks are now joined by more, morphing into a full warm up of the orchestra.  Suddenly a cacophony of noise, splashing water and honks bursts forth and the first flock erupts out of the water and is airborne, their strong wings beating out a buzz in unison as they pass right over you at thirty feet .   More orchestras ready, and then rally into position for departure.  Groups of ten, twenty, fifty blast out of the water, form their signature V's and head to the north.  Over the next thirty minutes, one thousand geese take flight giving an amazing display of nature in the annual fall classic.

You are Cleared for Departure!

Something about the common tern bothered me so I went to the car and

only to see the bird fly way, east, towards Newport Beach.

There is an adult winter plumage common tern resting on the sand in a small

I don't know if this is a previously reported bird, or not. I should go for
traffic, but my parking meter is going to run out of money pretty soon and
I don't want to get a parking ticket

Huntington Beach Pier
15 November 2019 11:25
Howdy, I'm writing this email while wearing reading glasses, and I have
food in my stomach, unlike the last time, when I stuck my foot in my mouth
while writing an email to this Orange County list (I was super hungry, and
I didn't have my reading glasses on). Viewing conditions are fantastic, and
you can see multiple islands from the pier. If anything, I wish I had
brought my floppy hat with me because the sun is too intense. The female
type black scoter is 20 trillion miles out in the open water from the pier,
okay, two three hundred yards out, mixing in and out of various subgroups
of the surface cultures. there's also the female type white-winged scoter
hanging out near the Black Scoter. I have obtained some digiscope photos
but I don't know how useful they will be.
There have also been two immature jaegers, one of which landed in the water
showing an incredibly small bill, and most of its body floating out of the
water like a Sabine's Gull. When it flew around it was very lanky and
skinny, and extensively pale underneath. The other one had much more
extensive dark underneath, and on the wings. I think I'm going to torture a
couple of you by emailing you a picture of this bird. if you have one of
those digital projectors where you can project it on the wall, that might
be the best way to look at the photo.

Thanks to Becky and Steve Turley I saw the bird at around 3:30 in a euc near the fence line. It was visible for maybe a minute before disappearing. We waited for another 1.25 hours hoping it would return for a photo, but it didn’t.

Try tomorrow , and go to the second parking lot on the right. You’ll be closer to the general area.

Walk 50-yards east along the fence-line of the golf course, past the tall golf-ball screen to a green picnic table situated before a stretch of pine trees. The bird pished in from the eucalyptus trees on the golf course side of the fence. It appears to be an immature bird, with frayed rectrices, brown tones to the primaries, and a reddish orange belly. I don't recall seeing a Painted Redstart with such an orangey belly before, so it is interesting to consider that females average "slightly more orange-tinged bellies than males" (Pyle 1997). So if this bird winters as I expect it will, it might not be singing in the spring.

picnic table situated before a stretch of pine trees. The bird pished in
from the eucalyptus trees on the golf course side of the fence. It appears
to be an immature bird, with frayed rectrices, brown tones to the
primaries, and a reddish orange belly. I don't recall seeing a Painted
Redstart with such an orangey belly before, so it is interesting to
consider that females average "slightly more orange-tinged bellies than
males" (Pyle 1997). So if this bird winters as I expect it will, it might
not be singing in the spring.

Other recent birds of lesser note include two Aleutian Cackling Geese
(adult and juvenile) at Carr Park (4 Nov), a Yellow Warbler on the south
side of David Baker golf course (5 Nov), and another Yellow Warbler and a
Wilson's Warbler at Centennial Park (7 Nov).

*****************************************************

The Orange County RBA and events summary is produced weekly by Ryan
Winkleman and Jeff Bray in collaboration with Doug Willick. Sightings of
rare birds can be posted to the OrangeCountyBirding listserv, emailed
directly to Jeff Bray (<jbray4913...>) and/or Ryan Winkleman (
<rswinkleman...>), and/or submitted to eBird (
http://ebird.org/content/ebird). Any supporting details (descriptions,
photos, audio recordings, etc.) of rare sightings that are not already
disclosed on the listserv or on eBird should also be emailed to Ryan
Winkleman separately for consideration to be mentioned in the current
quarterly report for North American Birds.

Those sightings that are included in this summary generally include those
that are considered rare (regionally or seasonally) for Orange County based
on "The Birds of Orange County: Status and Distribution" (Hamilton and
Willick), "Birds of Southern California" (Garrett and Dunn), and/or more
contemporary changes in local or regional status and distribution. Rarities
that regularly or seasonally occur at a particular location, such as
annually wintering rarities on Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, may or
may not be included in this digest, but reports of these same species
occurring at other, atypical locations throughout the county may be
included. We don't include hybrids, subspecies, introduced or exotic birds,
or in most cases and for no real reason, geese. All bird reports are vetted
to the extent possible prior to each publication, but in the interest of
sharing information, the accuracy of any given report cannot always be
guaranteed, nor can the presence of any given bird for those who choose to
chase after them.

Information on upcoming local events is taken largely from the Sea and Sage
Audubon website (http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/). Sea and Sage Audubon
is based out of the Audubon House at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in
Irvine. They sponsor a number of public field trips, special birding
events, conservation lectures, and social gatherings throughout the year.
Information regarding upcoming local events should be considered accurate
at the time of this posting. However, for the most current information
please refer to the field trip list on the Sea and Sage Audubon website at
http://www.seaandsageaudubon.org/FieldTrips/FieldTripSchedule.html. It is
also recommended that you refer to that website immediately prior to
engaging in any field trip to confirm that trips are still occurring. If
you know of additional upcoming events that are not sponsored directly by
Sea and Sage Audubon, please email Ryan Winkleman and/or Jeff Bray for
inclusion. #RBA

The zone-tailed hawk was back soaring above the canyon and trail adjacent to Santa Margarita Ford today at 1:40pm for about 5 minutes and on Monday around 3:23 for about 15 minutes.  I'm outside much of the day andI don't see it every day but off and on. It's hit or miss but typically around the afternoon hours.

Snow goose was observed foraging with the Canada and Egyptian Geese on the McFadden Intermediate School grounds next to Carl Thornton Park in Santa Ana at about 10:30 am today, 11/13/2019.  This may be one of the two geese that were at the same park in February.

Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Is this a hybrid in the making?
Hi Mike,

Yes, you've got a Western and Clark's Grebe couple. If these photos and
video were taken at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine, those species
are known to hybridize there. Outside of that location I'm not so sure and
I don't think it happens anywhere else in the county with any regularity,
but a mixed couple and hybrid chicks have been documented annually(?) at
the marsh for at least the last few years, particularly by local non-birder
photographers.

The photo's aren't great, but I think they show enough info.

Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Video of possible Eurasian X American GW Teal
Hi Chuck,

This could be a hybrid, but that can't definitively be ascertained from
your video. The pale lines that border the green face-patch do seem overly
bold for 'our' Green-winged Teal (carolinensis), and thus better for
Eurasian (crecca). However, this bird has yet to complete its molt (likely
the preformative molt of an immature male), and it isn't clear if the
incompleteness of the white vertical stripe visible on the fore flanks of
one side is related to that fact. Further, as is evident on this
individual, the lower scapulars and upper flanks feathers tend to be the
last feathers to molt, thus precluding the presence of a white horizontal
stripe typical of Eurasian. If this bird sticks around long enough to
complete its molt, we'll eventually be able to determine its status.

Hello, the link below is to a 56 second video I took of the possible hybrid green-winged teal at Bolsa Chica. I took the video yesterday when the bird was in the Wintersburg channel around 11 o’clock. The video shows both sides of the bird as it swims around in the channel. I’m sending this link out because I thought it might be helpful in identification.

There was a female Common Goldeneye on Pond C at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary this morning (11/11), along with the Wlson’s Snipe on the same pond on the south side.  Also seen today were a Merlin (flyover on Pond C) and a Dunlin on Pond D, then it flew off, plus the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron in its usual spot on Pond B.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Eurasian Green-winged Teal, Bolsa Chica
Curtis Marantz called to tell me that Dick Norton reported to him a
Eurasian Green-winged Teal at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington
Beach. The bird was apparently found in the Wintersburg Channel and then
moved over to the pocket pond. Neither I nor Curtis have seen any photos,
but the bird was described as clearly displaying a horizontal white stripe
on its side instead of the vertical white stripe that our American birds
show.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Highlights of the monthly walk at San Joaquin Marsh - 10 NOV
The monthly walk at San Joaquin Marsh took place today with about 25 folks
that showed up to see and/or hear the 87 species we encountered. Thanks to
Garrett Lepper for helping out today. Always good to have a co-leader!

Highlights included the continuing YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON and CATTLE
EGRET. We looked for the Neotropic Cormorant, but were unable to find it.
There has been no confirmed sighting of that bird since October 31. An
unexpected bird was a CALIFORNIA GNATCATCHER that was seen along the path
on the north side of Pond C. It was by itself, mewing loudly. There were
also Blue-gray Gnatcatchers nearby, so it was a good study for us to hear
both species at the same time.

List below of the birds that we had. A great walk this morning! Thanks for
coming out.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Carbon Canyon Brown Creeper
This morning I birded the area mostly around the tennis courts, and east of
there.
As soon as I opened my car door I could hear a Brown Creeper calling in the
pine grove west of the tennis courts.
Same location they have been found in past years. Sandy Remley joined me,
and helped me get eyes on the bird.

We also took a short drive up the canyon to Olinda Village. Though we
didn't look around very thoroughly, the bests bird we found in a huge flock
of Goldfinches, was a Purple Finch in the pines bordering the parking lot
on the right when you first turn onto the road.

Good birding-
