Subject: [sbcobirding] Ornithology lecture tomorrow 10/21
Hello birders,
I just found out about this lecture tomorrow at SBCC, given by a specialist from Cornell Lab of Ornithology on bird behavior of California Scrub-Jay and Acorn Woodpecker, specifically relating to acorn dispersal in California. More info below.

Rebecca Coulter
SB

SMITHSONIAN LECTURE BY CORNELL LAB ORNITHOLOGIST - RARE OPPORTUNITY!!
SPONSORED BY THE SBCC BIOLOGY AND BOTANY CLUBS

Please join us for a fascinating guest lecture on behavioral ecology by
Smithsonian and Cornell Lab of Ornithology Researcher, Dr. Mario Pesendorfer
entitled

"Following the Acorn Back to the Oak: How a Bird Guy Came to Study Trees"

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21 AT SBCC IN EBS 309 AT 11:00 AM - one hour or so lecture followed by question & answer

Dr. Pesendorfer researches the ecological and evolutionary processes at the interface between ecology and animal behavior as well as the role of individual-level behavior in shaping group- or population-wide processes. His research includes the investigation of the proximate drivers of mast-seeding in oaks, learning about the effects of such mast-seeding on the behavior of seed predators and dispersers, but also cognitive mechanisms underlying behavioral traditions in wild primates,

He is a Postdoctoral Associate with Walt Koenig at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and their work mostly focuses on seed production in valley oaks (Quercus lobata) as well as seed predation and dispersal by California scrub-jays (Aphelocoma californica) and acorn woodpeckers (Melanerpes formicivorus).

He is also a Research Associate with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, where he collaborates with Scott Sillett and Brandt Ryder on various questions surrounding the role of island scrub-jays (A. insularis) as seed dispersers for island scrub oaks (Q. pacifica) on Santa Cruz Island, CA.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Re: Orchard Oriole's Friend
The consensus is Orange-crowned warbler.  We are much obliged.  We had convinced ourselves that it was too big to be a warbler, but as John pointed out, an Orchard Oriole is not very big and that was our comparison.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Orchard Oriole's Friend
Yesterday we spent a little while looking for the Orchard Oriole along Santa Monica Creek. We enjoyed his company for for a bit, but among the pictures we took, we found some of an Oriole sized bird that we couldn't identify. The biggest problem was that its beak was consistently hidden by the flowers. Pictures are on Flickr.

If anyone recognizes this bird, we would love to know what it is.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Cackling Geese @ Refugio SB
During my birding class this morning, we also observed these geese. Not as confident as I’d like to be with all the races of Cackling…. My eBird notes below. I originally went with Canada, but have changed it to Cackling with these notes.

Also of note was a late Wood-Pewee (presuming Western, though it did not vocalize), perched high in a eucalyptus over the railroad tracks, occasionally sallying out for insects. Other highlights were a Merlin/Cooper’s Hawk interaction, and a nice comparison study of Elegant and Royal terns.

And a shout-out to the birders who stop and chat with the ranger staff at the park. I talked with one today, Scott Anderson, who is a sometime birder who enjoys learning from the birding community, and since he’s at Refugio daily throughout the year and carries optics and a camera, it’s good to clue him in on what’s happening!

Geese:
Both birds small and dusky in the breast. One bird had a not-too-clear light necklace, which I guess sends it into Cackling territory. The other bird I can't be sure was not a western Lesser Canada Goose, which approaches Cackling in size, bill size, and color. Both birds had small bills, smaller than I usually see on the common Canada Goose. But they were not in the smallest of the Cackling Goose range.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Palm Warbler at Santa Monica creek
I went to look for the Orchard Oriole this morning, and came away with a
Palm Warbler. Bird was in bottle brush along bikepath near end of El Carro
with several yellow-rumped warblers.

Pics in checklist:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40006480

Although not in evidence in my pics, the warbler had distinct yellow
undertail coverts.

I finally did get a glimpse of the oriole, sitting deep within a bottle
brush tree and not out in the open as others had seen.

thanks- Jessie

Subject: [sbcobirding] Orchard Oriole, Carpinteria
The adult male orchard oriole was seen this afternoon from the bike path at
end of El Carro Lane as previously described by John Callender. It took a
lot of patience to find, since as John mentioned the bird is shy and will
not show up when people are on the path. I waited in the shade of a large
eucalyptus tree for at least 45 minutes before this bird put in an
appearance. A few photos are at:

Subject: [sbcobirding] today at Stow House/Lake Los Carneros
Hi All:
Our class walked around Lake Los Carneros this morning. Interestingly, we met George and Gage on the way in — and saw NO Snow Goose, which they had. And on the way out saw Jim Hodgson, who mentioned the Palm Warbler on the grass — we didn’t see it. But that’s what I love about this birding destination: everyone sees different species on the same day.
Highlights are as follows: a mass of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the lerped Eucalyptus trees around the parking lot and the entrance path held two Bullock’s Orioles (one an adult male, another a young male), at least 3 Western Tanagers, and who knows what else?
Slowly approaching the pepper tree (which is getting overgrown with stuff) that marks the pathway down to the bridge, we had good views of the juvenile male YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER. (See our E-bird report for excellent photos by student Linda Frazier)
Down on the footbridge, we heard both Sora and Virginia Rail, but no visuals.
There appear to be FOUR juvenile White-tailed Kites, and two adults — at least that’s our count. We never saw more than four juveniles at once.
A couple of American Wigeon were on the lake, an Eared Grebe, and at least one Blue-winged Teal and a teal sp.
Just a great birding day at LLC!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Palm Warbler at LLC
There was a Palm Warbler on the grass with the Y-R Warblers on the west side of Stow house this morning. Also the Red-napped and juv. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers were in the same pitasporium tree on the northeast side of the house as last year.
Good birding everyone.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Tropical Kingbird in Santa Maria
I stopped by Preisker Park briefly today looking for the reported Vermilion
Flycatcher which I did not see, but a TROPICAL KINGBIRD was a nice
consolation. The kingbird was hawking bugs around the pond and perching on
the "Santa Maria" ship mast (a playground structure). A Cassin's Kingbird
was also in the area.

Good birding,

Early morning highlight was a juvenile Snow Goose among approximately 25 Canada Geese. The geese were gone by 8 a.m., presumably leaving their overnight roosting site for their feeding grounds elsewhere.

Both times I've seen the bird I've come upon it the same way: I've stood in front of the bushes for a while checking out Rufous/Allen's Hummingbirds without seeing it, walked south along the bike path out of the immediate area, then have seen the oriole perched prominently in the top of the bushes as I've returned.

Saw the bird again this evening around 6:05 p.m. It was in the same place,
perched atop the orange-red flower bushes on the west side of the
channelized creek. I took a (fuzzy and not really helpful) photo with my
phone and binoculars; you can see it, such as it is, at the ebird listing:

Both times I've seen the bird I've come upon it the same way: I've stood in

Subject: [sbcobirding] CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER in Montecito at my backyard pond
Hi All: This morning I wanted to hit some spots in Goleta, so I drove all the way out to Bella Vista Open Space, where I had hardly any birds, with the exception of one Red-breasted Nuthatch.
Then I went to Stow Grove Park, which was birdy, but contained literally a couple hundred Yellow-rumped Warblers to look through in the heavily lerped trees. I could only pick out a Black-throated Gray Warbler, a Townsend’s Warbler, and several Orange-crowned Warblers from this mob of birds, but surely if someone would take the time and get there earlier, something better is lurking in those Eucalyptus trees along the western edge of the park.
I then went to San Pedro Creek, where there was water, habitat looked great — zero birds of interest.
Then, when I was relaxing at home, a bright female type CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER came to drink at my backyard pond! I was so excited, saw the bird well, but was too slow to go get my camera. The bird stayed briefly to drink, and I hope it returns for a photo later today.
All that wandering around to get my best bird while I was eating lunch on my deck!
Fall migration isn’t over yet, as evidenced by “good” birds still being seen…..keep on looking!

The Orchard Oriole was present at lunchtime exactly where John described

it flew into the large trees on the east side of the bike path and did not

I birded the Santa Monica Creek bikepath and trail this morning (that is,
the bike path between Via Real to El Carro, and the dirt path between El
Carro and Foothill). In the prominent patch of orange flowers on the west
side of the creek just south of the footbridge (where we've had a wintering
Rufous Hummingbird in years past) I had good views of a male Orchard
Oriole. I watched it for a few minutes, then missed seeing it fly away
because I was fumbling to try to digiscope a photo through my binoculars.

A note to everyone, before a lot of people go out of their way to look for
a red adult male Scarlet Tanager: no plumage of Scarlet Tanager should be
red at this time of year.

Tried to find a red Tanager at Stow House/LLC this morning but no luck.  Ron's estimate of 200 Yellow-rumps is conservative.  Birding this morning was not remarkable.  Several hermit Thrushes were around--there is a nice crop of Toyon berries coming along.
On the lake, I heard both Sora and Virginia's Rails calling.  In a quiet channel, I found 3 Blue-winged Teal, one of them a male just coming out of eclipse plumage.  There was one female American Wigeon swimming with some of the Mallards.  No Swan, no Clark's Grebe, no Ring-necked Ducks.  One White-tailed Kite perched in the top of one of the Star Pines near the house.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Scorpion, SCI on Sunday
All,

With a good Santa Ana blowing again on Saturday night, I decided to try Scorpion again on Sunday. The results were pretty ho-hum. There was a/the Sage Thrasher in the same spot as on Monday, 3 Clay-colored Sparrows (all new from Monday likely), and a different Brewer's from Monday. What I suspect is the same Lazuli was still hanging around. I am starting to think there is Nashville Warbler wintering out there as I keep seeing one in the same area as well as having one in late Oct/Nov a year or so ago. At this point, it seem clear that Santa Ana winds do not result in large fall-outs at Scorpion, although they bring some birds in. The winds this weekend were probably only 60% as strong as ones Monday and there were definitely fewer birds in general. Sooty Fox Sparrows (12) were a bit commoner but I think these probably winter there. It's fun to see them scratching away in the open.

Sundowner winds are obviously better historically, but I haven't personally experienced these on the N islands yet.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Palm Warbler this morning at Greenwell Preserve
(Cc:ing the list in case others are interested.)

I parked in the small parking area just north of where Greenwell Avenue
turns sharply. Here's a map:

https://goo.gl/maps/R6BqYNsA9Cw

There's a little more detail in my ebird list:

https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39935813

I'd never birded there before. But I've been "flying" around the
Carpinteria CBC circle in Google Earth looking for places to scout. I found
an article by Ray Ford from a few years ago talking about the whole trail
complex that runs through there; I plan to spend some more time in the next
few months checking it out.

http://www.independent.com/news/2008/may/03/greenwell-trail/

Some of the best birding was right around the parking area. I got there
just as the sun was hitting it, and had that experience of getting out of
the car and not even raising my binoculars for several minutes because I
was so busy entering everything I was hearing in my ebird list. :-)

After that I walked up the part of Greenwell Avenue that parallels the
coastline for about half a mile; there are willows on the south side of the
road. That's where I almost got run over by several deer barreling down the
hillside.

Then I returned to the parking area, which is where I saw the Palm Warbler.
Then I hiked up the horse trail that leads northwest from the north end of
the parking area. I hiked in about 3/4 of a mile and back; lots of willows
and live oak. I saw the MacGillivray's Warbler about 1/4 mile from the
trailhead on my way back.

3:30pm in yard at corner of house/gift shop a vivid red tanager flew 20 feet over my head. I was so busy looking at the darkish wings I didn't notice a black tail. Since the vivid red was slightly rosy and the tail didn't jump out at me as black in color it was probably a (m) Summer Tanager. If you happen to see a brief overhead view of a vivid red tanager watch for a black tail, which would make it a Scarlet Tanager. 4:15pm a couple adult (m) Bullocks Orioles were there.

Calling all birders throughout California! Save the dates of November 17th – 20th for a November Tricolored Blackbird eBird blitz!
Audubon California and Cornell Lab of Ornithology seek more information about Tricolored Blackbird distribution in the winter. Most of their current data about this nearly endemic species is from the spring nesting season, so they need your help filling in the winter data gap. The Tricolored Blackbird is a candidate for listing under the federal and state Endangered Species Acts, so additional data can help inform management of the species. This survey will follow the eBird protocol and ask participants to bird anywhere they are able to in their local region.
This is a notification just so you can jot down the dates on your calendar.  More information will follow as soon as Audubon California provides the details.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Mountain Plover
Our Mountain Plover kept to the high-water line east of Carpinteria Creek lagoon despite moderate Saturday beach activity. I stayed with the bird from 1:30 - 3:30, click, click, click. Before I located the bird, I noticed what I took to be a birding couple; you know, binocs and long-lensed camera. To my surprise, the couple were expert dragonfly people out of Texas, experts in the bugs and birds of the Rio Grande Valley, the lady having managed the Rio Grande Birding Festival for years, and had no idea there was a rare bird about. I scanned up and down the beach and discovered our feathered guy/gal right beside us, still as a . . . Mountain Plover.

The spot where the plover spent its afternoon was east of Carpinteria Creek outflow, 150 yards beyond the permanent lifeguard station, dead in front of a park bathroom. Foraging focused on kelp fleas and whatnot a bill's-depth into damp sand.

This bird is tractable, tamer than a three-year-old sandwich gull. I knelt up-sun to steady my camera and twice it approached me to within ten feet while it foraged, always respecting MY personal space. (Any closer, the bird would have been inside my minimum focus distance.)

I haver pictures of the bird in flight, from two nights ago. There are no missing/molting feathers. The bird gets about just fine, on the ground, in the air, so one wonders, why Carpinteria Beach when there are much quieter beaches east and west. Just curious.

There are 2 Palm Warblers at Elings Park. They were mostly in fennel around the
stone bench, north of the paraglider take off spot. They were, however, quite
mobile, and the last I saw of them they were several hundred yards directly
east, near the houses on the eastern border. Also present was a Horned Lark.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Plover and really minor Carpinteria stuff
After getting nice long looks at the Mountain Plover near the mouth of
Carpinteria Creek (thanks to Maggie Sherriffs and Liz Muraoka), I birded
some other spots in Carpinteria today, October 14. Two AMERICAN AVOCETS
were flying along the City Beach near Ash Avenue at about 8am, with a flock
of Willets; a male BLUE-WINGED TEAL was in the Carpinteria Creek lagoon;
and a CHESTNUT-BACKED CHICKADEE was calling near the 8th St foot bridge at
Carpinteria Creek. Ken Perlmann, Jude Chen, and I also birded the vegetable
patch at the south side of the Carpinteria Cemetery. We had a few Savanna
Sparrows and a Lincoln's, but missed the birds Eric reported here
yesterday.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Mountain Plover, etc
I had jury duty this morning but wasn't required to stay, so that freed up some
unexpected time for birding and dragonflying. First stop was Elings Park, which
was dull. After the courthouse I went down to the mouth of Carpinteria Creek. No
plover at the creek, so I walked west with no success. Back near the creek mouth
I met the Thorntons, and we found the bird, at noon, a few hundred yards east of
the creek, just past the lifeguard headquarters building. Unfortunately we only
had a few minutes with the bird before it was flushed by a heedless youth. It
flew east and I lost sight of it. The beach was beginning to fill with people
at this time. I gather others searched for the bird soon after without success.
Perhaps an early morning visit would be worthwhile.

The Carpinteria tams had a few western migrants and a Greater White-fronted
Goose was on the driving range. Seaside Nursery was quiet birdwise, but there
was a Rambur's Forktail on the pond. The SB Bird Refuge held over 70 Snowy
Egrets and one Blue-winged Teal. I wonder why the refuge is no longer a
kingbird magnet as it was in past years; there are certainly enough dragonflies
for them to feast upon. Lastly, I paid a quick visit to Bohnett Park, which was
quiet.

Hi all,

I was able to check out the Mountain Plover from about 9:05-9:20am this
morning (Friday).

What a treat! In the 15 minutes I was there, the bird made its way closer
and closer to me and just before I left it sat down in the sand no more
than 20 feet from me and my scope.

You can check out some photos here <https://imgur.com/a/PmSXw>.

And a video here <https://youtu.be/H5WY4efFZB0>.

Thank you to John for sending me in the right direction this am!

Larry thank you for pointing to the bird from afar! It was great to see you
and Joan through the bins (and was Carol there too? I couldn't see everyone
very well). Sorry for booking it out of there but I had a 10am back in
Santa Barbara!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Coastal Cruise
Last week my wife and I on an 8 day coastal cruise were on the Monterey to Avalon leg through the channel in SB County waters for the whole 12 hours of daylight. I recall Paul Lehman doing one or two re positioning cruises, one way up for 5 days but don't think they were in SB waters as long during daylight. They were likely outside the islands and us being inside lessened the chances for most rarities.


Off Vandenberg mid morning had 3 groups of Pink-footed Shearwaters, followed by a few Black-vented and not much of note 'til east channel with a Black Storm Petrel and a few more Black-vented.


Best bird was a Black-and-white Warbler off of Point Conception foraging on crumbs on the outside Lido deck for about 20 minutes before the crowd spooked him. Most fun was an American Kestrel on board for the whole day roosting and hunting from a service platform aft, dining on a pigeon in the morning and snacking on dragon flies in the afternoon. Reminded me of a Hawaii cruise where a Pacific Golden Plover hitched a ride on our ship and a Peregrine Falcon followed us for 3 days across the Pacific.

MOPL observed on Carpinteria beach at the end of Holly Street from 9am-1pm.
The posture upright regularly bobbing to perfectly upright. It was very
bold (photos taken on my phone). There were no birds for comparison but
seemed killdeer sized, or smaller. The back seemed solid in color at first
glance, but through bins the feathers were clearly rufous edged. Light
rufous on all upperparts including cheeks. Legs were grayish and long.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Canada Warbler at Las Cruzitas
A very boldly marked Canada Warbler is showing now approx 6 meters from this point 34.60958 -119.96030 in a Chokecherry tree immediately E of Cruz' pond.
I have not spoken to Cruz this morning, but generally she is totally open about birders visiting her homestead.
The bird seems to be favoring the insects attracted to the ripe cherries. This is lawnchair birding at its best. BYO lawn chair.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Vermillion flycatcher at Preisker Park
A friend and I birded Preisker Park in Santa Maria this morning and saw many yellow-rumped warblers. The highlight however was a flycatcher that I could not identify at first because it had streaking on the breast as well as lacking any kind of eyering. It wasn't until later that I realized it was a female vermillion flycatcher. My previous sightings of this bird were all males. I later returned at 4:45 to confirm and the bird was still there. Its location was on a knoll in the southeast corner of the park, near the fire station. I'm relatively new to the area and am unsure how rare this bird is but it was certainly noteworthy to me. The park was rather birdy. Other birds seen included Western bluebird, American goldfinch, Northern flicker, Townsend's warbler, Say's and black phoebe, other woodpecker sp. and a nuthatch sp.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bird class at Coal Oil Point this a.m., comments on Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at LLC
Hi All:
We had a good class this morning at Coal Oil Point, walking along the bluffs beginning at the end of Del Playa, circling back around to Devereux.
The best shorebird watching was in the extensive wrack washed up along the beach between the steps from I.V. west to Coal Oil Point. What a great place that beach is, especially in winter — lighting is great, many Sanderlings, some Westerns and Leasts for comparison, and finally three Dunlin mixed in, my first this fall. One Black Turnstone.
Many, many shorebirds too distant to really i.d. completely are roosting towards the mouth of Devereux Slough, if you scan with a scope from the Sands Beach overlook. We saw Snowy Plovers mixed in with masses of Black-bellied Plovers. Definitely worth a beach walk on your own.
In contrast, Devereux is pretty pathetic and held very few birds. The water there is drying up or at least has very little oxygen. Waiting for rain….
About the YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER that Brad Hacker has so kindly provided us with excellent photos of: I took the liberty of writing to Curtis Marantz, because I was confused as to the age of this sapsucker. Traditionally, the juvenal plumage of Yellow-bellied is much browner than this (on the head especially) at this time of year, but Curtis suggested that this bird was moving from juvenal to first basic plumage, i.e., had been born perhaps earlier in the spring than a more typical bird, so that the red throat is clearly visible and a little bit of red coming in on the forehead, thus a male (females have white throats). So, thanks to Curtis for clearing that up, and to Brad for his photos.
Perhaps there are two sapsuckers at LLC: a Red-naped somewhere in addition to this Yellow-bellied? Further exploration needed!

I can use some education with Sapsucker ID.

I photo'd a Sapsucker at LL Carneros this AM.
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39826527

The bird has a complete black malar stripe, compatible with YBSA, but the back of the bird has white longitudinal bands more like a RNSA. There is no white on the chin, so it can't be a female RNSA, which I guess can have a black malar stripe. There's no red nape, but apparently that is not diagnostic.

Started at Refugio, no special warblers seen. Lots of activity all around. Good looks at a sub-adult Sora in the lower creek. Also two good looking male Bullock's Oriole. Also nice looks up close of Wrentit just north of the freeway bridges. A lone Canada style Goose in the ocean.

Lake Los Carneros - 3 young Kites, 3 American Kestrel, and a Merlin. The hybrid Goose and Clarks Grebe were present. Also a young Green Heron and a Sora..

NCOS-
Greater White-fronted Goose count now at 4. New for me were 26 Semipalmated Plovers hanging out in the natural seep area of the Snowy Plover sand area. The Kestrel was present, several Kingbirds, and a Red-tailed hawk. 1 Spotted Sandpiper & 1 Blue-wing Teal. Also had 8 Western Meadowlark north of the east arm.

Birders,
John’s post reminds me that last Saturday evening 10/7, at a non-birding event at the harbor (is there such a thing?), I had a White-faced Ibis fly from the Sea Landing overhead toward the breakwater. And just to prove that there IS no such thing, as I stood on the deck of the Spirit of Dana Point tall ship, an immature Peregrine Falcon landed on the mast of a nearby sailboat, calling insistently and peering down at the flock of potential meals resting on the beach. I made a valiant effort to point this out to the non-birding crowd…they were not impressed. Oh well, their loss.

Hi All: Larry Ballard and I did a quick walk out from Carpinteria Ave. to the RR tracks and back. Best bird was the Greater White-fronted Goose grazing on the Tee Time golf course! Otherwise, still a smattering of migrants, but nothing great. We also checked the tamarisks to the east of the Tee Time parking lot and found very little of interest there, not half as birdy as the police station row.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Tenn Warbler on campus
Hi all,

I bumped into a probable Tennessee Warbler on campus today. My description of the bird and it’s location are below.

The alders East of the bus circle were birdy again, with at least 3 Black-Throated Gray Warblers and some common birds. There are lots of Yellow-Rumps in the Morton Bay Fig on the Physics Quad, but I didn’t see other warblers in the ~2 minutes I looked.

The Tenn Warbler: An indistinct, yellow-all-over warbler, but I think it was was a 1st year Tenn rather than an Orange Crowned Warbler. It had a very different face than OCs, lacking the dark eye line. It had a distinct pale superscillium. I remembered to check under-tail coverts and they were lighter than the rest of the bird, if not by much. Didn't remember to check tail length or whether streaking was limited to flanks. It was feeding actively in a mallet flower tree (Schefflera pueckleri, I think) that is growing up against the South side of Campbell Hall. A Townsend's Warbler was working in the same tree.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Refugio and Stow Grove
I haven't seen any other posts about Refugio, so thought I'd post what I
know. Several people saw the PROTHONOTARY WARBLER from the bridge. It can
be a very long wait before it comes to the creek, so it might be worthwhile
to look in the trees in the western half of the park. I had it in
Eucalyptus and Monterey cypress on Friday evening,

Also present was a BREWER'S SPARROW, which was by the water in the creek at
about 11:45am. No sign of the Blackburnian, which I suspect is gone.

Connor Scotland showed me a photo of a confusing looking bird that he,
Julie Scotland, and Larry Ballard thought was a Tennessee Warbler. I'm
hoping to see the photos on my computer screen before I settle on an
opinion. They're probably right, but the bird looked pretty odd.

Earlier, at Stove Grove in Goleta, the eucalyptus was filled mostly with
Yellow-rumped Warblers. Only a few other migrants--one Western Tanager,
several Townsend's Warblers, a couple of Orange-crowneds, and a single
Wilson's--were present. Of some interest were calling RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH
and a flyover PINE SISKIN, the first I've heard of in the county this fall.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Possible Red-eyed or Yellow-green Vireo - Refugio SB
This morning around 10:30 am Julie and I found Larry B. and Carol S. at the
creek bridge at Refugio State Beach. After we all had nice views of the
continuing Prothonotary Warbler, Larry spotted an interesting vireo in the
trees along the north bank of the creek, about 50 + feet from the bridge.

The bird remained still for around 15 minutes, leading Larry and Carol to
comment that it didn't seem well. We never got great looks at its wings or
upper parts, and we weren't sure of its ID when it finally flew away. After
circulating some photos and receiving feedback from Dave C, Nick L, Hugh R,
Larry B, and Peter G, opinions are that the bird is either a Red-eyed Vireo
or a Yellow-green Vireo.

Photos can be found at the link below. Hopefully someone can find it again
and get a definitive ID.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Walk around COPR
This morning a group of us walked the whole loop along the shore, then past
the Dune pond and on around Devereux Slough. Rob Lindsay expertly led the
trip which was coordinated by the dedicated Jack Sanford. No rarities, but
what seemed unusual to me was the four female Surf Scoters flying just
above the shoreline, two Western Meadowlarks coming toward us on the beach,
seeing four separate Hutton's Vireos, an Osprey fly across the slough
toward us, and a Green Heron showing its crest. We saw all of the plovers
normally seen in this area and all but the Cattle Egret of the Heron/Egret
family. I posted the list of over 50 species observed on:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39605292

It was a warm day for this 3 and a half hour walk, but rewarding.

Hi all,
As many of you already know, I had a MacGillivray’s Warbler at Tecolotito Creek today. I needed help to ID it because 1) the eye ring was more complete (if still not perfectly complete) compared to the Macs I have seen in the past, and 2) it was totally silent. Photos at the link below. I didn’t think it was a Mac, Mourning, or Nashville, so I held up Connecticut as a long-shot possibility. Luckily Nick L was nearby and set me straight quickly.
Anyway, if you want to see a really really accommodating Mac, go to the dropped pin below. It is just a few feet NW of where Cortona dead ends into the creek. There are some brush piles there it is working in.

I found an interesting White-crowned Sparrow with a dark line in front of the eye at Refugio Beach in the overflow parking area. This particular bird also had a much bolder head pattern overall than surrounding birds. I have posted a few photos and would be interested in any comments as to subspecies of the bird.

This morning I had a FOS Hermit Thrush, RC Kinglet, and a Fox Sparrow (thick-billed/slate-colored type). Yesterday had a Phainopepla and a Stellar's Jay.


Sorry for no posts through fall. We have had a pretty steady slow flow of Wilson's and Orange Crowned Warblers starting on September 6. High count was 5 Wilson's and 3 Orange Crowned along with 5 Lincoln's Sparrow's on September 25. Had three Nashville Warblers, the first one on September 9. Three Yellowthroats have come through the first one on September 18. One Townsends on September 26th and a MACGILLVARY's on September 25.


Our first Savanah Sparrow was on September 18, first White Crowned Sparrow on September 23, and the first VESPER SPARROW and LH Shrike on October 3.


Also of note was an early RED-NAPED SAPSUCKER on September 27 that stayed 3 days.


Sorry about the late posts

Peter Schneekloth and I have seen the Prothonotary (once) and the Blackburnian (twice) warblers in 1 hour of watching from the bridge overlooking the creek. Bonus birds include a female-plumaged Red Crossbill and 4 Lawrence's Goldfinches. The Crossbill stopped to drink briefly, called a couple times, then we watched it fly well west of the creek.

About 1625hrs a single Broad-winged Hawk passed over Romero Canyon Road hawk watch. I spotted the bird far to the west of me circling over the little knob hills just west of Romero Canyon and watched it descend to near my position before gaining elevation and moving east along the same path as last nights bird.

All,

One juvenile light morph well seen overhead Romero Road hawk watch site for over a minute starting at 1620hrs. I watched the bird move NE until it cleared the high ridge behind Carpinteria at Rancho Monte Alegre. It would have been visible from around the four mile point along Franklin Trail.

SB Birders,

I started birding at Los Alamos Park this morning and saw nothing of note. I moved over to Waller Park and saw one Varied Thrush by the ranger's Cabin. The back pond had the returning male Wood Duck and he is quite friendly. If you want some close up photos of a awesome looking drake, this is your dude. The front pond had a hatch year N. Pintail and the resident Cackling Goose is still present. Just west of the duck pond was a Red-breasted Sapsucker. My next stop was Jack O'Connell Park, no Golden Plovers, but I did see 32 White-faced Ibis flying over the agricultural fields. I went out to the SMRE for a short sea watch, but ended up talking with Melissa and see said that whales and birds have been hanging out there for a couple weeks.
My last stop was the Santa Maria Sewage ponds here I saw 10 Greater White-fronted Geese, 53 Dowitchers, one Red-necked Phalarope, one Dunlin, one Baird's Sandpiper, 9 Pectoral Sandpipers. I did not count the Yellowlegs today, they were moving around too much, between the Greater and Lesser there were about 80 Yellowlegs combined.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Blackburnian Warbler Continues at Refugio SB
About mid morning we found the Blackburnian Warbler reported earlier. We also had a house wren and a couple of Yellow Warblers, one of which was quite dull in color.

Also, the large flock of elegant terns was still present.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bobolink at Andree Clark Bird Refuge
Another or the same Bobolink showed up at the west end of the bird refuge around 10:30 this morning, after Kay Register departed. (She was there to see a Bobolink.) It landed in the tallest trees immediately west of the third platform near the bat house that rests on top of a pole.

Yesterday (10/4/17) about 9:45 AM an Osprey and a Peregrine Falcon were both present across the Slough from the easternmost parking lot. There were also more than a dozen Least Sandpipers, two Greater Yellowlegs, and at least ten Black-necked Stilts.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Romero hawk watch
All,

From the hawk watch point on Romero road yesterday evening October 4 we had two distant Bueto moving with a vulture that I'm guessing were Broad-winged hawk by size/shape. These birds were moving between us and Ortega Ridge to the south out over the foothills. After passing us they headed to Toro Canyon Ridge where they gained elevation and moved to the high ridge at Monte Alegre behind Carpinteria before we lost them. September 30th several of us had had a Broad-winged Hawk follow this same path in the company of six vultures. Both the Vendanta Temple and the Pacifica Graduate Institute Campus along Ladera lane (south of the hawk watch ) would be good places to see birds along this path. Additionally the high point along the road into Toro Canyon Park (before descending into the park) would be worth a try. October 4th we also had a total 38 vultures pass over the hawk watch point.

October 1st and 2nd I had zero Broad-winged Hawks and little to no raptor movement at all between 3 and 5pm from the Romero road overlook. Clouds covered the hills up to Camino Cielo at Romero until at least 1pm October 1st and conditions looked the same October 2nd with cloudy conditions through the first half of the day followed by hazy and warm conditions later in the day. I didn't get out October 3rd (and conditions hadn't changed along the coast here).

I looked this AM from 7-8, but there was little to see other than Yellow Rumps & Townsends. Probably too cold and dark at that time. Waiting for this afternoon

This afternoon around 3:00, I did a little birding
around the upper bridge over Mission Creek on the Museum
property. Looking up creek—the same location where I saw
the Blue-headed Vireo—there were a few birds bathing. One
of them was a warbler with a grayish head, eye ring, and
very yellow underparts. It moved around a lot, in and out of
the tangle just above the bridge on the north side of the
creek. I was eventually able to see the white under tail
coverts before it took off upstream. I puzzled on it for a
bit, thought about Nashville, consulted Dunn and Garrett,
and finally came up with a first year Magnolia. Around 5:00,
I returned to the location, played a snippet of the Magnolia
call note, and the bird appeared again at the creek's
edge. This time I was able to get a really good look at the
white eye ring, gray upper parts, fairly bright yellow
throat and breast, pale wing bars, and the distinctive white
spots on the mid-tail, which were very visible when it
flared and flashed its tail as it moved around. The
streaking on the flanks was not prominent—something I
normally think of for Magnolia—but on the second viewing I
was able to see that they were certainly there, dusky gray
instead of black.



For those wanting to see the bird during Museum hours
(10-5), please remember to check in at the front office
before entering the property, and that there is quite a lot
of loud renovation work being done in the bridge area as the
roof tiles are removed from the building.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Blackburnian and Nashville Warblers, Refugio
As reported yesterday by Jessie Altstatt the Blackburnian Warbler continues at Refugio State Beach in the lower creek section. The bird was putting on a great show this afternoon once the direct sun had left the creek. The bird was out hawking insects with the Yellow-rumped and Yellow Warblers. It often flew or perched within feet of where I was standing. I also had good looks at a Nashville Warbler. Looks here for those interested:

This afternoon around 3:00, I did a little birding around the upper bridge over Mission Creek on the Museum property.

Subject: [sbcobirding] End of Coronado/Newport Dr. this a.m.
Hi All: Just reporting after a bird class where we saw lots of birds, but nothing special. We walked over the hill toward the Monarch Preserve from Coronado, then went northwest to Newport Dr. NO waterthrush present at the puddle (getting smaller by the minute) there. We had a good sprinkling of western migrants such as Yellow Warblers, Willow Flycatcher (2), and several Western Tanagers. Again, a White-tailed Kite was perched briefly high in the eucalyptus south of the Newport bridge.
We walked back towards the place where the trail heads off to the “hummingbird feeder house”. We met the owner of the house, Gil, who seemed very nice and welcoming to birders. We didn’t stop for long though, mostly Anna’s there. One of my students may have photographed a White-throated Sparrow in this yard, but I need to see the photos more closely.
At the seep and in the vicinity, activity was pretty slow. I was shocked at-- despite Mark Holmgren’s efforts at filling the puddle the night before— that the amount of water for the birds is greatly reduced. They still come in, but it’s difficult to see well with a group. The only “new” bird was a female type BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER, first spotted by one of the students and identified by Libby Patten. We did walk east as far as the second manhole, so to the “cuckoo spot”, where there were a few migrants but again, nothing unusual. We ran into Adrian and Ken and they told us they’d seen a Chestnut-sided Warbler at the end of Ellwood Beach Drive high in the eucs. We didn’t pursue it.
Keep on birding! It’s at the “end” of fall migration when the goodies turn up!

This evening at 7:10 pm at the bike path crossing at south Patterson, there
was a Great Horned Owl being harassed by about 75 crows. The owl was
flying, then perched and then flying again.

This comes after several days in a row of White-tailed Kites also being
harassed by crows.

This morning I stopped at the campground bridge at Refugio Creek and
briefly saw a Blackburnian Warbler around 815 am. It came down to drink
with a flock of Yellow-rumped and Yellow warblers. I got one picture which
I will post with full list to eBird. I checked several times throughout the
day but didn't see the bird again.

I forgot to mention an odd sighting--I had an Osprey flying near the bottom of the road.  It had an orange fish (carp? Koi?) in its talons.  I think this is a first for Farren Road.

SB Birders,

Today at 3:15pm 4 Broad-winged Hawks were seen at Hwy US-101 X Hwy CA-246 in Buellton. They were moving south southeast. They were moving fairly fast and were only in view for about 3 minutes.
There has been 10+ Ring-necked Ducks at the Granite Rock Quarry in Buellton, first seen on 9-28-17. This location is private property and is posted No Trespassing.

Good birding.

Subject: [sbcobirding] This morning in Goleta
Today I had time for a brief pass through some of the Goleta birding areas.  At Stow Grove, I had lots of Yellow-rumps and not much else.  The eucs were full of them and I could not pull out any different warblers from the mix.  I then went on to LLC, where there was a schoolbus full of children unloading, so I birded mostly the far side of the lake and didn't try to bird around the house.  I found the first Ring-necked Ducks I've seen this fall (3 of them) on the Lake, along with an Eared Grebe and two Gadwalls.  The Clark's Grebe continues.  Juvenile Kites are still screeching from the Star pines near the house and the adults were flying about overhead.

At Newport Drive, I quickly found the Northern Waterthrush doing much the same thing as it was in Peter's video form yesterday.  It's fun to watch.  A Townsend's Warbler and Song Sparrow also came down to the mud puddle to drink and a pair of Kites were perched in the tops of the Eucalyptus trees along the creek.
A Coronado Drive, I found little bird activity--the puddle is just about dry.  What happened?  I didn't bring water because I remember there being a post that Audubon was going to keep the area watered.  Was that in error?

This am (Tues) there was a Clay-colored Sparrow with a small flock of WCSP in the area between the North Campus Open Space fence and Sierra Madre Court road. This is where Sierra Madre Court makes a sharp left turn and Venoco road begins. There are some derelict buildings and old equipment from the former golf club at this location.

I walked the length of Farren Road this morning--lovely morning to do it.  Nothing special to report--several Yellow-rumps in the upper orchards and singing White-crowns were the harbingers of fall.  I picked up my first Golden-crowned Sparrow for this fall about 1/4 mile up from 500 Farren Road.  Two Ravens were flying all the way down to the junction of Farren Road and Calle Real when I arrived.
Nothing at all on the reservoir.

Here a short video of the Northern Waterthrush reported by Jeff Hanson and Cher Hollingworth at the Newport bridge and refound again at lunch time today. The bird appears to be plucking mosquito larvae right out of the water, kind of fun to watch:

The Northern Waterthrush reported by Jeff Hanson was giving excellent, unlimited looks at lunch time today. View was standing on the sidewalk and looking down at the puddle. Not the greatest viewpoint but the bird would come out on to small branches in the water and pick away at the surface as though it was grabbing small insects.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Lake Los Carneros this morning
Greetings birders,
During a birding class this morning, we had a nice collection of migrants and a few surprises. Many of the expected land bird migrants were present: Townsend’s, Yellow-rumped, Yellow, Black-throated Gray, Wilson’s warblers; Western Tanager; Black-headed Grosbeak; Bullock’s Oriole; Red-breasted Sapsucker. The Loggerhead Shrike continues on the east side of the lake, 8 Greater White-fronted Goose circled the lake, a fast-flying group of Blue-winged Teal briefly passed over the lake and move on toward the north (perhaps to the La Patera Ranch pond?), and a surprise Cattle Egret was among the Mallards resting on the southeast shore of the lake. Another highlight was the group of 4 White-tailed Kite juveniles vocalizing constantly and interacting with each other over Stow House. I have never before heard some of these sounds from Kites—a harsh raspy call occasionally punctuated by the expected chirpy whistles.

On another note: a tree crew was working to remove the dead conifers along the western side of the asphalt path along the lake. I spoke briefly with the crew leader, and he said they were advised by an environmental report to minimize total destruction of the trees most birders know to be used by many birds over the seasons. In at least one case they said they had been instructed to just remove the limbs of one of the conifers and leave the trunk standing. It was interesting to see an “Arborist Present” sign at the site. I don’t know the extent of this removal, if it will include the trees on the extreme western side of the property, which have a long history of use for nesting, roosting, and granary. I later spoke with an arborist familiar with the project, who indicated that wherever possible, the dead trees would be “encouraged” to fall away from the path and allowed to remain for habitat.

Motivated by Dave Compton's yarn about a rain of birds at Stow Grove, I ventured there this AM. When I wasn't dodging dustblowers I saw beacoup Yellow-Rumped Warblers, as advertised. I did not find either the Chestnut-Sided or Palm Warbler seen by Dave, but I did take a few shots at a Blackpoll Warbler in the parking lot eucs before it flew off to the east.

Hi all,

I had an opportunity to stay ashore at Scorpion Ranch, Santa Cruz Island today. It was very birdy.

The highlights were a White-winged Dove, Brewer's Sparrow, Clay-Colored Sparrow, Sage Thrasher, and Red-throated Pipit. I also saw a Bunting that I'm trying to pin to species. I have posted some photos of it in my ebird list. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera for the first hour of birding between boat drop offs so I missed my chance for great shots of the Pipit and Thrasher.

If anyone wants to email me directly with comments on the Bunting let me know. I have placed it as a Lazuli/Indigo at this point. I'm not sure any of the rarer Bunting Sps. fit well.

Presumably the same flock of 8 geese that Wes saw at Pershing Park on Friday
were grazing on the field at La Cumbre Junior High (Modoc St) this morning.
There was a dead Sora on the road at Modoc and Mission.

On my bike ride in to Hollister School this morning there were exponentially
more warbler chips than I heard on Friday. Seems like a good morning to be

Following up to the list because my private correspondence with Mark was
too good not to share.

I was with Curtis Marantz and Larry Ballard coming down the trail a little
ways ahead of Mark and his companion. When we passed through the big trees
in the creek bottom Curtis tried calling a Northern Pygmy Owl by imitating
its hooting. After a few minutes he gave up and we kept walking. So I
wondered: If Mark had identified the owl by ear, was it possible he'd heard
Curtis rather than an actual owl?

I emailed Mark to mention the possibility, but the joke was on me: He'd
identified the owl visually. He'd seen us ahead of him on the trail, and
just as we departed the area an owl flew in behind us and landed in a tree.
Mark called "owl!" to us, but we didn't hear him and kept walking. He got a
documentation photo that he sent me; that owl was adorable. I wish I'd
stayed to see it! :-)

This evening I walked to the 3rd viewing platform (did find 12 Western
Sandpipers at 2nd platform). Observed were large numbers of Black-necked
Stilts, Coots, Northern Shovelers, Snowy and Great Egrets, a couple of
Spotted Sandpipers, 10 Killdeer, and 3 medium sized sandpipers. At a
distance I thought they were Least Sandpipers, but as they came closer to
me on the mudflat I could see that they were larger than Spotted but
smaller then Killdeer. They had yellow legs, rather long bills, broader
and pinker at the base, that drooped a bit toward the end - and clear
demarcation between the speckled breast and white belly - leading me to
believe they are Pectoral Sandpipers. They had stripes on their backs and
a long white line just above the eye. I think they are uncommon fall
migrants. I posted a few photos and would appreciate a positive ID.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Stow Grove and Stow House Parking lot
This morning, I saw a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER and a PALM WARBLER at Stow
Grove Park in Goleta. The Chestnut-sided Warbler was in the eucalyptus on
the west side of the parking lot. This was the same area I saw a
Chestnut-sided Warbler more than a week ago, but it was a different
individual, lacking the chestnut patches on the side (the other bird had
pretty obvious chestnut patches). The Palm Warbler was briefly feeding on
the ground with a group of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the grassy area in the
southern half of the park. There were probably 50 Yellow-rumpeds on the
ground in the southern half of the park. A good number were also in the
eucs. Numbers are obviously way up, now.

At Stow House, it was moderately birdy in the eucs near the parking lot,
but I didn't see anything surprising. Two begging fledgling kites were in
the big star pine just south of the house.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Vesper Sparrow Farren Road
Hi everyone,

In case anyone is interested, late afternoon at around 6 pm, Rachel Liu and I had 2 VESPER SPARROW mixed in with the usual Lark Sparrow at Farren Rd. The birds were located behind a fence in an area of scattered peppertrees just after the first large bend in the road and before the densely hedged area.

Good birding,
Jasen Liu

Subject: [sbcobirding] today at the Bella Vista Dr. hawkwatch
Hi All: Today I spent an hour up on Bella Vista Dr. in Montecito. I was rewarded with the sight of 4 BROAD-WINGED HAWKS soaring high above the ridge of the Santa Ynez Mountains. This occurred at just after 4 pm, when Brad Hacker, who was up on the Romero Canyon fire road above and to the west, had seen 3 of these same hawks pass by. And we both saw the two ravens that preceded them! So, if you have the energy you should hike up the fire road for an eye level view.
However, if you are standing at the place that Eric Culbertson discovered, 2745 Bella Vista Dr., I wanted to let you know that there are some protocol issues here. You will be parking on a gravel verge next to a gray concrete wall. Behind that wall is a gorgeous house and guest house, in fact there are 3 gates to this place, 2745 is the middle one.
As I was hanging out there this afternoon, I saw a couple drive in with a bike on the top of the car. I surmised they are weekend residents. Shortly after, a very fit older guy rode out of the far driveway (signed as 2755) & passed me and then rode into the “service entrance” gate, so he’s the owner. He asked what I was doing & I said watching for hawks and he seemed to have no problem with it. BUT, PLEASE be quiet, respectful, & very friendly if he should reappear this weekend. We can’t lose this terrific viewing spot! Eric has found this place where you can see the top of the ridge (where the hawks fly over from the north) and you can also see the eastern flank of the SY Mountains as they stretch past Summerland towards Carp. So, it’s a strategic place, and yet it’s right outside this guy’s gray concrete wall.
Just sayin’ — let’s be super aware of not losing this great hawk watching place, when we are still learning the movements of raptors here in SB county.
Thanks heaps,

Joan Lentz

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Broad-winged Hawks
I followed Eric's lead and walked up the Romero fire road late this afternoon to look for hawks. I stood at the portion of the road that is a bit west of 2745 Bella Vista, beginning at 15:30. At 16:03 I saw 3 Broad-Winged Hawks in a kettle with two Ravens. Rather quickly the Hawks outstripped the Ravens in elevation, circled a few times, and moved off to the east. I got one mediocre picture: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39462335
Joan Lentz on Bella Vista below saw the same three Broad-Winged Hawks + one more.

All,  
A total of six Broad-winged Hawk
were seen from the eastern end of Bella Vista Drive in upper
Montecito (2745 Bella Vista Dr) and from Romero fire road
immediately above Bella Vista Drive this evening September
28th. I had decided to make the 25 minute walk from Romero
Trail head to an overlook along the fire road several
hundred feet above my usual spot along Bella Vista Drive.
Arriving just before 4pm I had a Broad-winged Hawk nearly at
eye level as it soared with a Sharp-shined Hawk along the
fire road. Roughly thirty minutes later I watched three more
Broad-winged Hawk descend toward me from the west. These
birds soared for a few moments low enough over my head that
I could identify them without binoculars! At the same time
Joan Lentz had arrived along Bella Vista Drive and I called
her and she got on two of the three Broad-wings as they
headed east. A little later Joan had two more Broad-wings
that I completely missed from my vantage point. It sounded
like these birds had moved past Joan and below her, only
being spotted as they moved east and into her view. All
birds were light juveniles. We also had a combined six
 Sharp-shined Hawk.

Hi all,

there was a black and white cat activity hunting songbirds near the

Thanks Eric for this report. Today I checked (again) Gaviota Pass and I got
one MERLIN and nothing else of note. I'm still trying to decide if this is
just a bad location for raptor migration, or if I'm just really bad at
this.

The bird reported on eBird at 2:40 PM yesterday is still at the west end of AC Bird Refuge this morning. To my eye this is a very bright juvenile Pectoral Sandpaper.
Although the bill lacks the pale mandible base of Pectoral, the breast pattern is heavily streaked and well-delineated. In flight the bird called several times and it was the harsh 'dzzrt' sound of Pectoral.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Possible Sage Thrasher at Carpinteria State Beach
I checked for the Sage Thrasher at the original location near the State
Beach Campground entrance this morning and did not find it, but an hour
later I found it (or a different one, though I suspect it's the same
individual) 1 mile east at the harbor seal overlook at the Carpinteria
Bluffs just east of the Casitas Pier. Details (and more bad-iPhone-digicam
shots) at my eBird listing here:

https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39418902

The bird flew up and perched on a bush about 20 feet away from the overlook
benches, stayed a few minutes, then flew to the west.

Access:

There's a parking lot next to this spot at the south end of Dump Road, but
it's private and reserved for the oil platform support operation at the
pier. The closest public parking would probably be at Tee Time on
Carpinteria Ave, next to the small patch of tams. Then you could walk south
on the dirt road that runs along the east side of the agricultural fields,
cross the railroad tracks (carefully; it's an uncontrolled crossing and
trains approaching from the east can appear suddenly), then follow the path
along the bluffs to the right until you come to the harbor seal overlook.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Lagoon Survey
Hi all,
This morning from 7:30 to around 10:30, Lisa Stratton and I birded along the eastern side of the lagoon and Campus Point area for the monthly lagoon survey. Most notable was the number of VAUX'S SWIFT flying east, with a total of at least 659 for the entire morning (on eBird, the high count was 525, just a tad higher than my count of 518 for the lagoon checklist)! Mixed in were some swallows, including 3 rather late CLIFF SWALLOW seen at various time points.
Nothing else was too exciting but a WILLOW FLYCATCHER in the marshy thicket near De La Guerra dining commons was nice to see, 2 WANDERING TATTLER continued at the Campus Point rocks, and a GREEN HERON on the lagoon island by the commencement lawn was my first one seen on campus. Coots have come back in numbers, while Wigeon have also begun to arrive.


Good birding,
Jasen

I did a Coal Oil Point Reserve survey yesterday, then went to Coronado
Drive. Our 'best bird' was a family of Bobcats (2 40% grown kittens and 1
adult) laying along the western shore of the Dune Pond. We were there for
10 minutes scoping the birds before Jessica spotted them--they were
*that *cryptic.
They crept into the west side tules once detected. Not seen again.
Other birds at the Dune Pond were 1 each Short-billed Dowitcher, Wilson's
Snipe, Lesser Yellowlegs, Greater Yellowlegs, and Solitary Sandpiper. See
list here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39395714

Devereux and Ellwood Beaches: 122 Snowy Plovers, 223 Sanderling, 169
Black-bellied Plovers. See list here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39395915

Devereux Slough: very few birds N of the half-bridge; nice array of
expected shorebirds oceanwards of the bridge. See list:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39395424

Coronado Eucs: a bit less than an hour of effort produced 1 or 2
Black-chinned Hummingbirds at the home feeder shown on the aerial photo on
this eBird checklist. Otherwise, at the storm drain were Hooded Oriole,
Western Tanagers, Yellow, Orange-crowned, Black-throated Gray, Townsend's,
and Wilson's Warblers.
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39395009
SB Audubon Society members have found a way to bring water to the storm
drain so there should be water there in the weeks to come. You may no
longer need to BYO Water.

SB Birders,
I was able to do some speed birding in Santa Maria today and I am positive I over looked many birds.

Jack O'Connell Park,
1- Pacific Golden Plover

Santa Maria Sewage Ponds
15+ Lesser Yellowlegs
6 American Avocets
4 Pectoral Sandpipers
1 Wilson's Snipe
7 Greater White-fronted Geese
1 Yellow-headed Blackbird

Santa Maria River Estuary
No birds of note, but it was going off with birds, whales and California Sea Lions. The feeding frenzy was awesome. The water had a foamy froth with 20? Whales, numerous sea lions and a tornado of birds feeding just off shore. I was hoping to see a booby or two, but I did see several unidentified jaegers mixed in this mess of birds.
I had limited time at this location, I would liked to have stayed longer.

If you are interested, there is a pelagic trip going out of Ventura on 10-7-17 you can check out the Island Packers website for more details. There is another pelagic trip going out of Morro Bay on the 14th, this another great trip. It will go out into rarely birded waters and we have seen some great birds on this trip in the past. If you are interested contact Mike Stiles at <mstiles...> Both of these trips are great for photographing pelagic birds.

These are currently the closest pelagic trips to our county, good birding.

There were other ducks I could not ID, too distant. in the month I've been here, the population seems to be getting more diverse. I am slowly learning where to spot what.


Also in two outbuildings I have encountered a small bird, white breast, otherwise mostly black, nectar type beak(?). Short, up-tone call. No idea wat it is. I keep shooing it out doors.

Subject: RE: [EXTERNAL] Re: [sbcobirding] More geese
Robert,

Generally geese populations have increased massively in North America over the last few decades and are causing significant problems for other tundra species like shorebirds as geese take over their breeding habitats. It would actually be better to greatly reduce most populations.

The management and creation of habitat for them in hunting areas is certainly one reason for this increase. So goose hunting hasn't had any negative effect on their populations - quite the opposite. There are a few subpopulations like Tule Whitefronts (not the ones that occur down here) that are rarer, but most populations are doing well (e.g. Aleutian Cackling Geese).

Swans and geese are also much more prone to change their wintering areas as these are learnt not innately programmed into them. For example minima Cackling Geese are now much rarer than formerly in California but that this is simply because they shifted their wintering range north into Oregon.

There is isn't much incentive for Whitefronts or any other geese to return to Southern California in numbers because:

1. Winters are now generally much milder in OR/WA than 30 years ago so no reason to travel further south
2. Geese like to feed in large fields with grass/grain, extensive marshes etc. Southern California is pretty much solidly urban so lacks habitat. The large coastal marshes they used to inhabit are all gone.

Nick

Hi Rebecca:

I am so glad you reported these 6 rare geese and I am inspired to write a few thoughts about the current status and a hopeful future.

These geese you observed were fortunate to have escaped the gun hunters in Klamath-Tule Lake area as they entered California from Oregon on their southerly migration. I wish to accelerate the recovery of this goose species into urbanized Southern California at our urban parks with lakes and lagoons and grasslands of golf courses and ball fields.

Perhaps these 6 geese are a mother, father, and 4 young? Or are they 6 young birds and both parents are dead?
Or two families with 2 young in each family? Or perhaps, the two parents with 2 generations of their young geese following them?
Any photos to share with us?

I looked at Grinnell & Miller (1944), Distribution of the Birds of California, alongside Garrett & Dunn, Birds of Southern California for status and trends of this goose. Clearly there has been a severe decline for this goose with practically no winter abundance in coastal Southern California from about 1940s to the present.

The flock you saw ought to have been 600 birds or 60 birds, in other words an order of magnitude or two higher.
I attended California Department Fish & Commissioner attended CDFW wildlife meeting and learned that a lot of hunting occurs for this goose occurs in the Klamath-Tule Lake region of northeastern California. I spoke up about the desire for this goose species to recover to our urban coastal counties in winter, where they will be protected from hunters, nurtured with supplemental feeding of grain if needed, and abundant lakes to sequester for night-time safety.

Perhaps these 6 geese are a mother, father, and 4 young? Or are they 6 young birds and both parents are dead?
Or two families with 2 young in each family? Or perhaps, the two parents with 2 generations of their young geese following them?
Any photos to share with us?

I looked at Grinnell & Miller (1944), Distribution of the Birds of California, alongside Garrett & Dunn, Birds of Southern California for status and trends of this goose. Clearly there has been a severe decline for this goose with practically no winter abundance in coastal Southern California from about 1940s to the present.

The flock you saw ought to have been 600 birds or 60 birds, in other words an order of magnitude or two higher.
I attended California Department Fish & Commissioner attended CDFW wildlife meeting and learned that a lot of hunting occurs for this goose occurs in the Klamath-Tule Lake region of northeastern California. I spoke up about the desire for this goose species to recover to our urban coastal counties in winter, where they will be protected from hunters, nurtured with supplemental feeding of grain if needed, and abundant lakes to sequester for night-time safety.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Pelagic trip out of Ventura with Island Packers on 7 Oct 2017
Hi All

This is a reminder that Island Packers is offering an 11-hour deepwater pelagic trip from the Ventura Harbor at 7 am on Saturday October 7.  This trip will allow us to get to offshore waters beyond the reach of most day trips where we will have a chance to see a number of outstanding pelagic birds and marine mammals.  The waters around the northern Channel Islands can be very productive during the fall when hundreds (sometimes thousands) of shearwaters crowd into the inter-island gaps. We will be looking through flocks of Black-vented, Pink-footed, and Sooty Shearwaters for Buller's, Flesh-footed (uncommon), and Manx (rare) Shearwaters. This is peak season for seabird diversity so in addition to the species already mentioned, Black-footed Albatross, Black and Ashy Storm-Petrels, Cassin's and Rhinoceros Auklets, and Pomarine and Long-tailed Jaegers are all possible. It is a good time of year for South Polar Skua, Sabine's Gull, and Arctic Tern. Recent trips near the islands have found Blue-footed Booby (2013-2014, 2016) and Brown Booby (2013-2017). There is also a potential for sought-after species like Cooks' Petrel, Red-billed Tropicbird, Least Storm-Petrel, Townsend's Storm-Petrel, Guadalupe Murrelet, and Craveri's Murrelet. The last 4 years have been exceptional for Craveri's Murrelet off southern California and with warm water continuing, our chances to find this elusive species may be good.  We saw approximately 45 Craveri's Murrelets on our recent July trip from Ventura!  In addition, there was a Nazca Booby seen on a pelagic trip out of San Diego this weekend so anything is possible out there.  We will decide what our offshore destinations will be after reviewing oceanographic conditions at the time of the trip, which will help determine where birds and other marine life may be present.

The trip will be on an ultra-fast catamaran that features a spacious and comfortable cabin, galley, and excellent viewing from both the upper and lower decks. A full contingent of outstanding seabird leaders will be present to make sure we see all that is out there.  The Captain and crew know how to run birding trips and are enthusiastic and helpful.  In addition, we work hard to creep up on birds and get them in the right light for photographers.
Trips can be booked over the phone by calling (805) 642-1393 or online at www.IslandPackers.com by clicking the Reserve Trip tab, select the Special Trips tab, and select your desired departure. The cost of the trip is $170 per adult.

Hope to see you at sea!

GWF Goose continues in Carp Creek Lagoon this morning. An early arrival.

Saw Brewer's Blackbird chasing a Spotted Sandpiper while itself being
chased by a Crow. Then, two Brewer's Blackbirds chased the sandpiper while
being chased by two Crows. First time I've seen that!

The Sage Thrasher is still there this morning at 0719, running around on
that same patch of grass.

FYI: There's a special event going on (a triathlon) at the State Beach
today; hopefully that won't disturb the bird too much. Also, it being
Sunday morning, the nearby street parking around Reality Church may be
limited.

Hi all,


Today, Rachel Liu and I birded a bit of Santa Cruz Island from the Prisoner's Harbor landing. Scattered migrants were seen throughout the day but the only bird of interest was a nice GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE seen briefly in the scrub about a mile down the main trail.


Nothing amazing was seen on the ferry ride, but 2 partially leucistic Black-vented Shearwaters were fun to watch on the way to the island.


Good birding,
Jasen Liu

There was a lot of trial and error before I could get any usable photos; I
was lucky the bird was so cooperative.

I also tried shooting video to show how the bird was moving. When I watched
that video at home I realized it showed the bird's spread tail when it was
flushed. I posted the video to YouTube; if you watch to the end you can see
where I tried to crop in and use slomo to show the tail a little better.

There are past records of Sage Thrasher in fall along the Carpinteria Coast.  I recall checking the small park on Rincon Point for one at least 25 years ago.  This is a good find nonetheless.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Possible Sage Thrasher at Carpinteria State Beach
Around 6 pm today I was walking past the entrance kiosk for the State Beach
Campground at the south end of Palm Avenue in Carpinteria when I saw a bird
foraging on a grassy patch. The bird appeared to be a relatively
short-billed thrasher, grayish above with a speckled throat and breast. It
was repeatedly running and stopping in a robin-like manner.

The bird was fairly tame, allowing me to watch it through binoculars at
close range (as little as 20 feet) for about 30 minutes. A couple of times
it was flushed from the spot by passing pedestrians, but each time it
returned. When it flew I saw that it had prominent buffy patches in the
outer corners of its otherwise-dark tail.

I was able to get some low-quality photos by holding my phone up to my
binoculars; I've attached them to my eBird report. See:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39356144

I realize sage thrasher would be very unusual, but I've had a hard time
coming up with an alternative ID. I'd appreciate suggestions. :-)

If people want to try to see if the bird is still there tomorrow, I'd
suggest parking on the street at the south end of Palm Ave., just north of
the railroad tracks, then walking (carefully) across the tracks toward the
State Beach campground entrance. There's a model tomol (Chumash canoe) on
the right side of the entrance road at that point; the bird was foraging in
the grassy area in which the tomol is located. It's possible to stand in
the area of the campground amphitheater immediately to the west and have
good views of the grassy patch.

Chris and Rebecca Coulter, Betsy, and I checked out Miguelito Park and Ocean Park this morning. We had brief glimpses of the Prairie Warbler at Miguelito along with tons of Townsend’s Warblers. Surprising was a single Red-breasted Nuthatch.

At Ocean Park, 1 Greater White-fronted Goose and 1 Pectoral Sandpiper were the highlights along with 2 Ibis, 3 Caspian Terns, and the expected shorebirds. There were quite a few Barn Swallows moving through with maybe 30 sitting on the utility lines along the entrance road.

I'll post since no one else has. Peter Gaede spotted a Prairie Warbler in
the tamarisk at the west end of the Carpinteria Bluffs, near the southwest
corner of the driving range, in the wood pile area. No sign of chickadees,
Blackpoll, or Virginia's, at least not as of 9:30 or so.

A visiting birder told me he saw an American Bittern at Lake Los Carneros
earlier today, 23 September. I was unclear on the location, but it sounds
as though it was somewhere on the east side, probably in the southeastern

The immature SABINE'S GULL reported earlier in the week by Wes Fritz
continues at Jim May Park in Santa Maria and is very confiding along the
shore near the observation deck. It was the only gull at the lake this
morning. It seems quite content and there for the moment. A few other birds
of interest here included one imm Greater-White-fronted Goose and a
Cassin's Vireo in the single park pine tree. Several expected warblers were
in the lerpy eucalyptus trees along with a couple of tanagers.

I had good, though brief, views of a single female black-and-white warbler
foraging in a live oak on the west bank of Carpinteria Creek about 75 south
of Sixth Street at 10:45 this morning.

This was part of a really fun outing with a bunch of newer birders, though
unfortunately they'd left by then and it was just me who saw the bird. I'll
put more details in the eBird report shortly.

Made a quick stop at Refugio Beach/road on the way home. A White-winged Dove, very possibly continuing, was seen in the lower section of the creek within the park. Walking north from cheap skate parking area I had a Nashville Warbler in the willows west of the road. This area seems birdy every visit in the last few weeks.

Hi All:

The Virginia's Warbler continues in the tams near the City Hall halfway down near the large wood pile. 2-3 Chestnut-backed Chickadees here were also of note. There was a Blackpoll Warbler in the Tee Time parking lot tams, found by John Callender earlier this morning.

All,

I had a Virginia's at Elwood in the eucs around the willow patch on the eastern edge towards the old golf course. In the same area was a Swainson's Thrush, which is only a rare migrant in fall on the south coast.

Nothing else of interest here or at Stowe Grove, although lots of western migrants.

Subject: [sbcobirding] More on Botanic Garden Pewee
Sorry that it's taken all day to make this post.  as noted earlier, I went to the Garden this morning to see if I could re-find the Wood-Pewee found by Rebecca yesterday near the Campbell Bridge and was able to observe well for at least a half hour.  I had front, side and back views, although all the front views were at some distance.  I only had binoculars with me.  It is definitely a Wood-Pewee, not an Empidonax flycatcher--flies from and returns to the same perch, does not flick wings or tail no eye-ring.  Here are some things I noticed;
1.  The bird's bill appears to be all black.  Best way to determine this is from a front view, but those views were the most distant.  Side views were closer and again the bill looked to be very black on both mandibles for the entire length.  This would pretty much rule out adult Eastern W-P.  However, it does NOT rule out immature.
2.  The bird is very light on the breast and throat--almost white.  It is somewhat vested, but not as definitively as most Western W-Ps I have observed.
3.  The wingbars are more pronounced than on any Western W-P I have observed. 
4.  It calls a lot--sounding like a clear "Peer" when I first heard it.  Most of the time, it was NOT slurred upward, but it did do that a couple of times; however, more often it was slightly down-slurred.  Hearing the call up close, I realized that it was actually a two-noted Pee-yer vocalization.  According to the literature, both species of wood-Pewee can make this call.  I heard it this spring in addition to the breeding "song", an emphatic "Pheee!"  
I suspect this is a Western Wood-Pewee, but it would be good to have photographs of this bird examined by experts before it departs.  Photos through a long lens could certainly confirm bill color for example.

Subject: [sbcobirding] More on the seep and environs this a.m.
Hi All: Marilyn Harding and I visited the seep shortly after 11:15 a.m. — not sure how we missed Florence, but the seep was quiet, so we headed west, walking towards the Butterfly Preserve, then turning right (north) past the house with all the hummer feeders (not sure how to identify this trail, but hoping you know the place). Right there, a thicket to your right comprised of oaks and some Eucs. held a flock of several warblers, including a female AMERICAN REDSTART. I’m not sure if this is a new bird for the seep area, there’ve been so many warblers recounted, but anyway, there it was. Proceeding onwards, we followed the little ditch using the trail that parallels it, and eventually ended up at Newport Drive. I was shocked to note NO water in the ditch above ( north)of the Newport Dr bridge, and only a small dirty puddle south of the Newport Dr. bridge.
It was getting hot and windy, so we made our way slowly back. There are still quite a few birds in that area between the hummingbird feeder house and along the ditch towards Newport Dr. We had a Black-throated Gray and several Orange-crowneds, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Pac.-slope Fly, etc.
The lerped eucs are thick in here.
Point being: don’t just stop at the seep, but wander either west or east, because the lerped eucs. are still a big lure.

Good birding!

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Chestnut-sided Warbler @ Coronado 'Seep'
I also visited the Coronado Puddle twice today. both times to add water.  It needs a lot.
When I came the first time around 11:00 a.m., the first bird that showed up after I poured in my bottles was the Blackburnian Warbler.  Soon after I had two Yellow Warblers, A Wilson's Warbler, male Common Yellowthroat, 3 Wstern Tanagers, A California Towhee, 1 Black Phoebe, 1 Lesser Goldfinch, and a Warbler I haven't identified yet.
The birds are still drawn to this area even as the puddle decreases, so I hope we can keep it going a few more days.  I won't make it there tomorrow.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Gaviota and surroundings 2017-09-21
This Thursday morning I checked out Gaviota SP and some surrounding spots.

I tried the southbound Rest for raptors, but I did not get what I hoped
for. An OSPREY riding the ridge was curious though.

At Gaviota the only warblers that I managed under these windy circumstances
were COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, ORANGE-CROWNED, and YELLOW-RUMPED (ugh). The
birdiest spot was the patch of Tamarisks near the pier. The pier itself was
loaded with 110 BROWN PELICAN, and an assortment of gulls and cormorants.
At the rocks were 2 WANDERING TATLER. A distant and high-up flock of 70+
CORMORANTS puzzled me for a while. The beach had 1 ROYAL TERN.

Nojoqui Falls Park had 1 RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET and nothing else of note.

The ag' fields along Old Coast Highway are looking better than in previous
years. A quick stop got me a fair number of WESTERN BLUEBIRDS and LARK
SPARROWS, and a SAVANNAH SPARROW.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Owls and Goatsuckers at Colson Canyon

Beckie Hellwig and I headed up to Colson Canyon this morning about 0430 to look for owls and goatsuckers. We were not disappointed. At every location where there is currently still water, we heard multiple Western Screech Owls. We estimate that, from the first location all the way to the Forest Service Gate, we heard no less, probably more, than 8 Western Screech Owls. We also heard at least 6 Great Horned Owls. We also observed 2 Caprimulgiformes. I suspect that they were Common Poorwills based on the lack of white patches on the wings. Both birds were flushed while driving on the upper portion of Colson Canyon Road near the campground. We didn't get good looks at these birds so I'm a little reluctant to formally identify.

If anyone who is more conversant in "owl" and would like to head up there, I would be interested in going along (I can drive). We heard so many different hoots, toots, howls, screams and clicks, that there may have been other owl species that we missed.

I just left the Garden ( 8:45 a.m.) after observing the Wood-Pewee that Rebecca Coulter found yesterday.   It is still hanging out near the Campbell Bridge.  Simply stand there and look downstream (southeast) and wait.  It calls frequently.  After listening and observing it for 25 minutes, I am not sure of the identity of this bird, though I lean toward Western Wood-Pewee.  Expert photos and observers are needed--go now if you can.  More on my notes later.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Re: Scorpion on Sunday
Birders,

I was able to get off the boat today at Scorpion Ranch, first time in a very long time. I will second Nick's comments on the grapes in the area behind the Kayak store/old corral and fig trees. This was the most interesting area for birds besides the ripening figs. The figs at the end of the 1st camp area are getting ripe and attracting hordes of birds, mostly house finches and several Western Tanagers + one Black-headed Grosbeak. The grapes had numerous Tanagers plus a trio of Hooded Orioles and a few warblers and Song Sparrows. Warblers today were limited to Wilson's, Townsend's, Yellow, and Orange-crowned. I did not see the American Redstart. If anyone in the next month is headed out that way definitely check those fruiting trees and vines.

All,

I went out to Scorpion on Sunday, hoping the marine layer could have induced a decent fall out there. That wasnt the case. The best birds were an American Redstart and a Lawrences Goldfinch. A couple of Hermit Warblers were nice. There is quite a lot of fruit around with ripe grapes and fig trees attracting numerous Western Tanagers. I think these might be a good bet for something like a Cape May if the Ravens dont eat them too quickly.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Elings Park
I walked around Elings Park this morning, making a concentrated effort to check all the fennel patches.  I had no luck at turning up anything unusual.  All I got out of the fennel were a House Wren and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.  One thing I did notice were several flocks of Barn Swallows lfying east over the park, perhaps migrant flocks following the coastline. 
I seem to be off birds' radar right now so it's certainly worth it for someone else to check the area again.  (Based on the fact that I got virtually nothing at the Botanic Garden and Stow Grove yesterday but Rebecca and Dave Compton saw lots of good stuff at each location today.) I also have walked Rocky Nook Park at least three times since last Wednesday and found no Vireos except Hutton's.  Not my week apparently.

A nice collections of warblers at Stow Grove Park in Goleta included a
Blackpoll (the first warbler I got my bins on) and a Chestnut-sided (the
second). Clearly there's been some turnover since I was last here four days
ago, when I had a lot of Yellow Warblers and Warbling Vireos. This evening,
I saw only one Yellow and three Warbling Vireos. But a good variety of
migrants was here, as well as decent overall numbers.

The two rarities, by the way, were in lerpy eucs next to the parking lot.

All the warbler species that Ron reported were present off & on between 2:30 and 4:45, except the Chestnut-sided. In addition, a female American Redstart showed well.
The Blackburnian Warbler appeared twice, once at 3:15 and once at 4:30, providing good looks, but it did not stay long.

I’m assuming Curtis will post a detailed eBird list — he was there earlier & later than I.

The puddle is definitely drying up. Whatever water you can bring would be appreciated!

One more update. Having limited experience with the species, I was advised that my reported Nashville Warbler at the drip Tuesday was actually a Virginia's Warbler.
Some people today reported a Nashville when Adrian and I were walking back to the drip. I wonder if it was or was the VIWA.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Blue-headed Vireo photographed at Rocky Nook Park last Wed.
Hi All:
Here’s a heartbreaker for some of us who need BLUE-HEADED VIREO in SB county:
Remember when Rebecca reported that she’d seen a bright vireo with a bluish head last Wed., Sept. 13, while birding at SBMNH grounds? Well, on that same day, after I’d had my Wednesday bird class at Rocky Nook Park, one of my students, Linda Frazier, went back to Rocky Nook to get some photos (it’s hard to photograph in class sometimes), and she happened to get this gorgeous photo of a Blue-headed Vireo! It’s undoubtedly the same one Rebecca saw, since it was by the trash cans near the entrance to Rocky Nook, so not far from the eastern edge of Museum grounds where Rebecca saw the bird.
Linda’d been out of town until last night, when she sent the photo of the vireo to me! I nearly fainted! I sent it to Dave Compton and several others and the consensus was definite for Blue-headed.
So Rebecca and Linda have Blue-headed Vireo for the County, and I have only the PHOTO of one. Boo hoo…..
Since I don’t have a flicker page, I am not sure how to circulate this photo, perhaps Dave Compton can suggest a way? He has all of the photos that Linda took of the bird. They are beautiful!

Good birding!
Joan

Subject: [sbcobirding] Morro Bay pelagic trip - 14 October
Birders -



There are still spaces available for the Morro Coast Audubon October 14 boat trip out of Morro Bay. Weather permitting, our goal will be to reach the Santa Lucia Bank. It is crunch time for this trip in that if we do not get enough participants to sign up in the next few days we may need to cancel or risk losing our deposit. Please email Mike Stiles at < <mailto:<mstiles...> <mstiles...> if you are interesting in going. Or if you have already contacted Mike, please mail back your information and check.



The cost is $122 for an 8-hour trip out of Morro Bay, which is a pretty good value relative to most trips offshore. Species that we can expect on this trip are Pink-footed and Buller’s Shearwaters, Black-vented and Sooty Shearwaters, Parasitic and Pomarine Jaegers, Red and Red-necked Phalaropes, Cassin’s and Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murre, and Sabine’s Gull. Also a good possibility are both South Polar Skua and Flesh-footed Shearwater, and with luck, we may see Black-footed Albatross, Manx Shearwater, Ashy Storm-Petrel, Tufted Puffin, or even a Great Shearwater or something else totally unexpected.



There are not many opportunities to take a fall pelagic trip off San Luis Obispo County, especially during October, so for those out there hoping for San Luis Obispo County birds, this trip will provide a good chance for new county birds. This trip is closer is comparatively inexpensive and we still have the ability to attract birds by chumming! Master chummer West Fritz will be attracting birds to the boat and one of the leaders . The other leaders will be Curtis Marantz, Peter Geade, and Tom Edell.



Again, if you are interested, please email Mike Stiles at < <mailto:<mstiles...> <mstiles...> today!

Subject: [sbcobirding] request: merge your personal eBird location of Great Crested Flycatcher checklist with Hotspot
Following the suggestions by Richard Norton and Dika Golovatchoff we now
have an eBird hotspot for Seaside Gardens:
http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L6281194

If you have an eBird checklists for this location I encouraged you to merge
your personal location for Seaside Gardens with this hotspot. At the moment
the map looks like it has the measles. The following ebirders seem to have
checklists at this spot: John, Shirley, Joan, "Southwest Bird Study Group",
Judy, Jim, Curtis, and Jeff.

If you feel that the Hotspot pointer does not properly represent the
location where you birded you can always add this info in writing in your
checklist. If you do not like the name "Seaside Gardens", then you can
change that as well.

There are also checklists from Jimenez Flowers/Nursery/Growers; and I would
not mind creating a Hotspot for that as well. For that to happen though,
one of the checklist owners (Libby, David P, David C, Nick) will have to
suggest it as a hotspot.

Thanks.

eBird Hotspot Editor for Santa Barbara County

After a number of very quiet visits Bella Vista is finally waking up with a Northern Parula at lunch time today. A possible Willow Flycatcher but better looks were needed.

SB Birders,

Curtis Marantz just left the continuing Sabine's Gull at James May Park in Santa Maria.

This Gull is fairly approachable for the photo people out there.

Good birding

Brad Hines (yes, Brad Hines) found a Prairie Warbler in Miguelito Park this morning about 10:30 -- associated with a small flock of other warblers along the creek behind the ranger’s residence.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Pewee at Botanic Garden this morning
Greetings birders,
This seems to be my season for ID puzzles. This morning while leading a group at the Botanic Garden I heard a loud, clear, slightly ascending whistle near the Campbell Bridge. We eventually saw what I assumed was Western Wood Pewee hawking insects from a few dead branches over Mission Creek. Its vocalization was not quite what I've ever heard from Western, as it lacked the burry quality completely. So later I played several recordings of both Eastern and Western and it seemed a much closer match to the short rising whistle of Eastern. Reading a bit further on the subject of separating these two species in an ABA article from Birding magazine in 2008, I find that while voice is often a good determining factor, Western can occasionally have a more Eastern-sounding rising whistle, as well. What I also heard that I was barely conscious of at the time as coming from this bird was a soft "prrrt" call that, according to this article, would point more to Western than Eastern.

So: it might be interesting to wander down to Campbell Bridge if you've got a camera and see what you find. Take a look at the ABA article before you go...I learned quite a bit about the fine points of that ID!
