Subject: [sbcobirding] Bird refuge and Mission Creek outfall
I. stopped at the Mission Creek outfall this morning around 8:30 and found the Wood Duck swimming in the muck as Adam Searcy reported yesterday.  I moved down the walk a little bit to start on the gull flock and when I looked back, the duck was gone.  I didn't see it fly out and didn't find a Wood Duck later at the bird refuge, so I don't know where it might have gone--perhaps to Chase Palm Park's pond.  The Gull flock has a lot of diversity as Adam reported, including 3 adult Herring Gulls.
AT the Bird Refuge, I had good looks at Pectoral Sandpiper from the third viewing platform.  There was an assortment of shorebirds at this spot, most viewed better from the second viewing platform.  I also walked down toward the southeast end of the Bird Refuge so that I could look northwest across the pond and it does indeed afford good scope views of the increasing mud flats and associated birds.  However, it's a long way to walk from the parking lot or Los Patos Way.  It's a little closer from the back-in parking spots on Cabrillo Boulevard.  For ducks, I had no Wood Ducks or Cinnamon Teal, but Shovelers and Green-winged Teal were very evident and active along with the usual residents (Ruddy Ducks, Pied-billed Grebes, Eared Grebes, etc.).
The mist had stopped so I made a trip up to OrtegaHill Road and Grenwell, but along with other birders did not turn up the Magnolia Warbler John Callender saw at 9:50 this morning.  Viewing conditions slightly better than yesterday afternoon, but it was still hard to see color and pattern of many birds moving in the dark trees.

Just to piggyback on this and from the perspective of an eBird reviewer you
might see now how use of the terms, "Continuing", "Found east of the
parking lot 6 stairs", or "Seen with Sanderlings" is not proof that the
bird was seen at all. Because the bird has been changing as of late if you
do see it but aren't able to add a photograph to your checklist we will
probably expect a good written description before an eBird checklist entry
is validated.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Gray Catbird continues at SBBG
The Gray Catbird continues this morning at the Botanic Garden, in the same spot—repeatedly visiting the now-raisins at the grapevine opposite the main entrance. The bird mewed several times, making it easy to track down when it was buried in the lemonade berry shrubs. This is by far one of the busiest areas of the Garden, and the bird ducks under cover now and then, but is mostly unbothered by the coming and going. Hermit Thrushes, Robins, and a Wrentit were also feeding on the grapes. Other highlights during a 90-minute walk leading a small group were high numbers of Hermit Thrush, singing White-crowned Sparrows, a couple of Sooty Fox Sparrows, and the usual cast of characters for this time of year. Predictably absent today was any raptor activity, and almost no woodpeckers detected at all, just a few distant Acorn Woodpecker squabbles across the canyon.

Wednesday morning, October 21, 2020

Gobernador Canyon was birdy but nothing remarkable showed up. Best were Hermit Thrush and Golden-crowned Sparrow. The resident Red-shouldered Hawks were present. Persimmons are ripening and should attract Cedar Waxwings before too long.

Back at the Nature Park there were two pairs of crows. In each pair, one was preening/cleaning/nibbling the neck of the other whose head was bent forward to permit nape access. Hadn’t seen that before.

I'm glad Nick posted this.  I made a similar comment to Dave Compton a few days ago because I noted that in a couple of the eBird postings, the accompanying photos were of a Dunlin, not a Curlew Sandpiper.  
The distinction between these two species is getting a little trickier as the Curlew Sandpiper is molting into basic plumage and is losing the scaly feathers of its juvenile plumage.  But the Curlew Sandpiper continues to have a strong white supercillium which the Dunlin does not; it also shows a white rump patch in flight that sometimes peeks through the folded wings even at rest; and the bill is more decurved throughout its length.  Mark Holmgren recently posted some excellent photos of the two species side by side that are worth studying.

Bird appeared soon after everyone left; perhaps it favors a more-halcyon
environment than we provided.
As Florence described the lighting was frustrating, so the pictures I
got are not so great <https://ebird.org/checklist/S75157476>.

Subject: [sbcobirding] North county
SB Birders,
Sorry no rare birds, just birding. Today I birded the Los Alamos Sewage treatment plant on Bell Road and it was not as good as John Deacon’s report, but it was pretty good with the best birds being 6 Dunlins and the same waterfowl previously mentioned. Last week on the the 13th it was pretty good also with a few more Dowitchers today.
I then birded the Santa Maria Sewage Works on Black Road. The Pectoral Sandpiper is still present from the 13th the Cackling Goose has move on that was seen last week. There has been a uptick in Dowitchers to about 80 from 20 from the 13th. 14 Dunlin were also seen today, one Lesser Yellowlegs remains with the 90ish Greater Yellowlegs. I did not detect any Western Sandpipers today. A Ferruginous Hawk was perched on the football goal post at Jack O’Connell Park. We birded around Waller Park in Santa Maria on the 13th and saw a Broad-winged Hawk rising with the
Last week on the 12th while birding in Lompoc We had a flock of 40+ Tricolored Blackbirds in the cattle pasture directly across ( south) from Ocean Park Road. We also
Had a Tropical Kingbird at Surf Station perched on the Vandenberg fence. In a private agg field we also had one Red-throated Pipit. A short seawatch turned up the expected birds, although on the 13th at SMRE the Black-vented Shearwaters were in large numbers, 1,000’s hard to estimate how many. 25ish American White Pelicans were in the estuary.
On the 11th we saw one
Lazuli Bunting at Prisoners Harbor on SCI there were many other migrants we did not get to look through them properly, the Shrike was in the marsh area, very cool. The boat ride was extremely slow.
I have been hitting up some private ranches and farm
Ponds out in the SYV and I have noticed at lmany of these ponds having Virginis Rails and Soras. It seems that the Cedar Waxwings are starting to show up too along with the sapsuckers. I have tried birding up on Figueroa Mountain but it has been slow too.
I stopped in and hung out with Cruz and we saw a pair of Lawrence’s Goldfinches along with all the other expected birds.
Please remember the heat wave we were having over the last couple weeks, it was making the birding very difficult.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Curlew Sandpiper misidentifications
All,

There are starting to be problems resulting from a Dunlin being present in
the same area as the Curlew Sandpiper. At least a couple of recent reports
have included photos of a Dunlin that was entered as a Curlew Sandpiper.
Please exercise due caution. As far as I can tell, none of the reports from
today had any documentation that eliminated Dunlin.

- Comments: "Continuing. After roughly an hour and a half of waiting around, I refound the warbler foraging in the dense ivy understory closest to the stone benches (surround the trio of stone pillars). After getting a good enough look to be positive about the ID, I called it out and the two birders I was closest to saw it. The bird then flushed up, briefly perched on a bare eucalyptus branch (would’ve been a killer photo), then flew off into the eucalyptus stand behind a curtain of ivy. I called out to the rest of the group (10-15 birders at the time) and told them where I saw it. After a few more minutes someone else refound it in a short euc close to the sidewalk pavement and the whole group was able to get views of it. Similar in posture and shape to the MacGillivray’s Warbler nearby, but plumage more easily confused with a yellowthroat; greenish-yellow back and wings; dull gray head with a thin white eye ring; bright lemon-yellow throat and underparts, quite brighter than the nearby yellowthroats; lemon-yellow rump and edged rectrices; missing central rectrices have a false impression of a forked tail. Others got photos."

In a pine tree. Two admittedly awful photos submitted. Although we couldn't ID the bird in the field, subsequent research pointed to a (female?) Magnolia Warbler, as that seems to be the only warbler that exactly matched the bird we observed."

has increased and I saw my season-first adults and one young HERRING GULL,
one GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULL, and a lovely second-year RING-BILLED GULL amid
the usual assortment of regulars.

Some highlights from a quick scope of Andree Clark form the Cabrillo side:
another drake WOOD DUCK (this one either a young male or male coming out of
eclipse) many GREEN-WINGED and a scattering of CINNAMON and (smaller
scattering) of BLUE-WINGED TEAL, a calling VIRGINIA'S RAIL, multiple SORAs
(Sori?), a DUNLIN on the second-to-westernmost island, a PECTORAL SANDPIPER
at the east end--along with about 20 LEAST SANDPIPERS, a few SPOTTED
SANDPIPERS, 8 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS, and 12 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, which may
have been the highest shorebird diversity I've seen here.

While sometimes jokingly called the "Birdless Refuge" it did not live up to
that name today as the water levels are falling and exposing habitat for a
greater variety of species (I detected >50 species from today's brief stop
and only covered a few hundred meters of the SW portion). For quick stops
it seems the best views are from the Cabrillo side looking north-- this
leaves a lot of hidden habitat but one can't always walk all the way out to
the viewing platforms.

Good birding,
Adam

Subject: [sbcobirding] Gray Catbird
I got to the Garden about 4:15 this afternoon.  I met Hugh Ranson who had had the Catbird in its usual spot about 10 minutes before I arrived.  I waited until almost 5:00 before it put in an appearance for me, but when it arrived in its favorite grapevine-covered Lemonade Berry shrub, it announced its arrival by "mewing" loudly and often.  It came into clear view while grabbing grapes off the vine and was easy to see.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Magnolia Warbler at Ortega Ridge
A lot of people looked for the warbler this afternoon without success.  I arrived later than most of the lookers, some of whom had been there for almost two hours.  I offer my congrats to anyone who was able to pull out and identify warblers there.  Because of the overcast, the light was very bad, so birding was a matter of trying to identify gray moving dots against a background of black tree limbs and foliage and a gray sky.  I gave up after a half hour.
Still the birding potential of this site is good.   A lot of good things could forage in the pines.

Subject: [sbcobirding] LLC: White-faced Ibis & Virginia Rail yesterday; American Bittern today
I don't have photos up yet, but yesterday at LLC there was a Virginia
Rail (possibly two) that I discovered after checking my photos of the
White-faced Ibis.

Today an American Bittern was visible for over an hour while I was
birding there. I observed it near the middle of the southern shoreline
of the eastern lagoon; I was standing at the NE end of the lagoon. The
bird was clearly visible standing and occasionally slowly moving among
the reeds.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] today at the Mourning Warbler site
Mid afternoon my experience at LogMeIN was quite different. It was not
hard to find the location David Compton had described so well - but during
my time there I don't think any of the birders found the Mourning Warbler.
I saw Anna's hummingbirds and a couple of Ruby Crowned Kinglets and an
Orange Crowned Warbler in and around the ivy bordering the eucalyptus
grove. BUT a yellow jacket flew in and stung me on the inner surface of my
left index finger. It's pretty painful and the finger has swollen quite a
bit - I have been icing it. I do not have allergic reactions to this kind
of sting fortunately.

I left and made a short stop at the seep at the end of Coronado. I had
been observing the puddle in very low light for not more than a minute when
a very bright adult male Townsend's flew in and bathed while I shot off a
few photos. It was the first Townsend's I had seen this year - and it is
just about my favorite warbler. This more than compensated for the
previous stop experience.

For an easier and more pleasant warbler watch I would recommend visiting
the waterlily pool at the Riviera business park. Last week and the week
before - on sunny afternoons - several Yellow, Wilson's and Black-throated
Grays as well as many Audbon's came in to drink and bathe and would also
come up quite close to me. It's also a place where you could easily set up
a scope since the birds often are at the far end of the pool among the
water hyacinths.

Hi All:
I wanted to share with you the great feeling I had of cooperation and respect when I chased the MOURNING WARBLER, which was well seen and photographed today at the entrance to the Log Me In industrial park off Hollister in Goleta.
If you are ever handicapped, as I am, you can expect that birders will be friendly, look out for you, tell you if the bird has been spotted, and generally go overboard to help you find it. That’s what I experienced this morning as I waited for over an hour for this beautiful bird to appear. Thanks to Dave Compton for a great find.
This is birding at it’s best!
And thanks to Deven for being the first to refind it today!

Thanks!

The Mourning Warbler just made its first appearance at 1104. I initially spotted it in the dense ivy bed near the stone benches, and it flew off west behind a curtain of ivy. Haven’t refound it as of this writing.

Warbler with grayish hood that extended slightly down sides, very thin white barely broken eye ring. Olive green above, yellow throat and breast. Undertail yellow, oddly forked look to tail (which others have noted and their photos show there are missing feathers in the tail). Mainly seen for brief looks when it emerged from the ivy tangle. However, at one point when 15 or so birders were clustered close by to to see it, the bird flew up to a branch overhanging Dave Compton’s head, where we could see it in plain view. (And later it bathed in a roadside puddle, tho I didn’t see that.) Comparisons with MacGillivray’s and female Common Yellowthroat were convenient, as both these species were also present."

- Comments: "Found in the dead anis along side Bell St immediately SE of the chain link fence outside the LAWTP. This bird was approximately the size of nearby YRWAs. The slightly rufous cap caught my immediate attention along with the obvious supercillium. The bird pumped its tail up and down several times during my observation. It flew away as I fumbled for my camera. As it flew away I looked for a yellow rump and there was none, further eliminating YRWA from consideration."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Mourning Warbler
I arrived at the proper spot around 7:45, just after Larry Ballard found it.  It did not put in an appearance again until around 8:30, and that appearance was so brief that only a couple of people saw it.  Around 10:30 with at least 15 hopeful birders watching, it came out again and showed well, foraging in and out of the cape ivy leaves on the slope.  I suspect this bird might be easier to find from mid-morning on, rather than early in the morning.
The MacGillivray's Warbler was more cooperative, affording several brief views throughout the morning.  This is a very handsome bird, worthy of a trip in its own right.  The majority of the activity at ground level was from a couple of Common Yellowthroats.  After it warmed up a bit, there was a short but nice flurry of bird activity in the eucalyptus near the road edge.  I had an Orange-crowned, 1 Yellow, 1 Yellow-rumped, 2 Townsends, and a Wilson's warbler in the trees along with three Ruby-crowned Kinglets and a Hutton's Vireo.  That made a total of eight species of warbler in this spot during the time I was there.
Thanks to Dave Compton for finding and promptly reporting this bird.
Florence Sanchez

All:
I birded the LAWTP, Santa Maria Mesa Road Ponds, Mud Lake and SMCC this morning.
The LAWTP was worth the trip.  Highlights included a Palm Warbler, 2 Northern Pintails, 4 American Wigeons and a bunch of Dowitcher sp.  Checklist is here:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S75095982
I didn't find anything noteworthy at SMM Road Ponds nor at Mud Lake.
The Vermilion Flycatcher at SMCC made a brief showing before being chased off by a couple of Cassin's Kingbirds.

Hi All,    I reported the catbird, which was fairly cooperative. I'll post pictures to ebird later tonight, but an image through my binoculars is attached. This afternoon, around 3pm, bird was vocalizing in an oak tree at the Garden entrance and flew into a lemonade berry adjacent to the pedestrian gate leading across Mission Canyon rd. It appears to have an appetite for the dried up grapes that are growing on the lemonade berry. There's also a toyon with unripe fruit in that area. Adam Searcy, Casey Richart, and Steven Gaulin were present and got good looks at the bird. Three American White Pelicans flew overhead when we were looking for the catbird. Just a reminder that the Garden is open to the general public from 10am-5pm (9am-10am is member hour) and visitors are required to wear masks.

- Comments: "On the ivy-covered slope at the north end of the storm drain basin in the center of the complex that supports a dense grove of blue gums. The bird mostly stayed pretty low, and was often seen with an adult male MacGillivray's Warbler. It was similar to many fall MacGillivray's I see, with bright yellow on from the breast down through the under tail coverts, olive above, rather pink legs, and a bit of a hooded appearance. The hood was mostly a pale, dull gray. The gray extended to a patch on either side of the throat, but it was broken in the middle with pretty obvious yellow (not as yellow as most of the underparts) that extended up to the chin. The face was also different from MacGillivray's, in that, instead of distinct pale eye arcs, the bird had a nearly complete, narrow eye ring that had a narrow break on either side (but note that some photos show the eye ring break to be more obvious).

The tail was medium length, and looked oddly forked in the field. Also, I thought the under tail coverts were not as long as they probably should be for Mourning. But please see a photo by Bradley's Hacker in this checklist:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S75056337

A photo showing the tail cocked in this list shows a gap, not only in the center of the tail, where several feathers are missing, but also in the under tail coverts, which come to a double pronged tip, with a V shaped gap in the middle. Apparently, this bird is missing feathers in both the tail, giving it a forked look, and the under tail coverts, making them look shorter than they might. Given that, I don't see any mark against this bird. Note, however, that no calls were heard."

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Gray Catbird reported to eBird
Hi All,
I reported the catbird, which was fairly cooperative. I'll post
pictures to ebird later tonight, but an image through my binoculars is
attached. This afternoon, around 3pm, bird was vocalizing in an oak tree at
the Garden entrance and flew into a lemonade berry adjacent to the
pedestrian gate leading across Mission Canyon rd. It appears to have an
appetite for the dried up grapes that are growing on the lemonade berry.
There's also a toyon with unripe fruit in that area. Adam Searcy, Casey
Richart, and Steven Gaulin were present and got good looks at the bird.
Three American White Pelicans flew overhead when we were looking for the
catbird. Just a reminder that the Garden is open to the general public from
10am-5pm (9am-10am is member hour) and visitors are required to wear masks.

Best,
Scot Pipkin

Just a little more about location, for those who haven't been there. Just use the directions to get into the lot and then find the eucalyptus grove. There is only one eucalyptus grove in the entire complex. You can't mistake it. The bird is on the slope on the north side of the grove, mostly in ground cover. Coordinates:

Good luck.

Hi folks,
A lot of people have gotten to see the Mourning Warbler this afternoon. Thanks especially to Nick Lethaby, Brad Hacker, and Adrian O'Loghlen for helping refind the bird. I think when others were around looking for the bird today, I referred to it as a female. But it may in fact be a young male. It's more hooded looking than a lot of young Mournings you'll see photos of, and the hood is more gray, including some gray on the sides of the throat. That last feature gave me some pause, but I'm told that the break in the middle of the gray, particularly considering it's yellow in that break, is fine for Mourning. The eye ring is nearly complete, with just a slight break. But it's pretty thin, and thinner than you would expect in MacGillivray's. 
As for birding this location, it's important to consider that this location is a private business complex and that it COULD be a little awkward having a bunch of people there at the same time. I'm not trying to discourage anyone from going there; just trying to make people aware. If anyone asks what you're doing, please be respectful and open about it. I don't think anyone will ask people to leave, but it could happen. If it does, then please comply. I have been asked to leave this place, but that was under a previous ownership, and before COVID-19. Nick tells me he's been there during the week this fall, and the offices don't appear to be occupied, although there are landscapers around. So, I think it should be OK.
Finally, directions, for those who haven't been there: the place is on the north side of Hollister, between the Storke/Glen Annie and Winchester Canyon exits, a bit closer to Winchester Canyon. The eucalyptus grove is directly north of the north end of Coronada St, the same street that dead ends on the south at the storm drain puddle in the butterfly grove. The two entrances to the complex are east and west of Coronado, and are well marked with "LogMeIn" signs. The bird is staying on the north slope of the basin where the eucs are (away from Hollister), in low vegetation (English ivy, etc.), often seen with an adult male MacGillivray's Warbler.
Elsewhere in the complex today, there were still some other migrants, including five or six Black-throated Gray Warblers, a couple of Yellows, and a couple of Wilson's, in the tipu trees with the many Yellow-rumpeds and sprinkling of Orange-crowneds.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Mourning Warbler and the LogMeIn complex
Just a little more about location, for those who haven't been there. Just
use the directions to get into the lot and then find the eucalyptus grove.
There is only one eucalyptus grove in the entire complex. You can't mistake
it. The bird is on the slope on the north side of the grove, mostly in
ground cover. Coordinates:

34.43076, -119.88966.

Good luck.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Mourning Warbler and the LogMeIn complex
Hi folks,

A lot of people have gotten to see the Mourning Warbler this afternoon.
Thanks especially to Nick Lethaby, Brad Hacker, and Adrian O'Loghlen for
helping refind the bird. I think when others were around looking for the
bird today, I referred to it as a female. But it may in fact be a young
male. It's more hooded looking than a lot of young Mournings you'll see
photos of, and the hood is more gray, including some gray on the sides of
the throat. That last feature gave me some pause, but I'm told that the
break in the middle of the gray, particularly considering it's yellow in
that break, is fine for Mourning. The eye ring is nearly complete, with
just a slight break. But it's pretty thin, and thinner than you would
expect in MacGillivray's.

As for birding this location, it's important to consider that this location
is a private business complex and that it COULD be a little awkward having
a bunch of people there at the same time. I'm not trying to discourage
anyone from going there; just trying to make people aware. If anyone asks
what you're doing, please be respectful and open about it. I don't think
anyone will ask people to leave, but it could happen. If it does, then
please comply. I have been asked to leave this place, but that was under a
previous ownership, and before COVID-19. Nick tells me he's been there
during the week this fall, and the offices don't appear to be occupied,
although there are landscapers around. So, I think it should be OK.

Finally, directions, for those who haven't been there: the place is on the
north side of Hollister, between the Storke/Glen Annie and Winchester
Canyon exits, a bit closer to Winchester Canyon. The eucalyptus grove is
directly north of the north end of Coronada St, the same street that dead
ends on the south at the storm drain puddle in the butterfly grove. The two
entrances to the complex are east and west of Coronado, and are well marked
with "LogMeIn" signs. The bird is staying on the north slope of the basin
where the eucs are (away from Hollister), in low vegetation (English ivy,
etc.), often seen with an adult male MacGillivray's Warbler.

Elsewhere in the complex today, there were still some other migrants,
including five or six Black-throated Gray Warblers, a couple of Yellows,
and a couple of Wilson's, in the tipu trees with the many Yellow-rumpeds
and sprinkling of Orange-crowneds.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Goleta Mourning Warbler
Now at the LogMeIn complex. Nick, Adrian, Brad, and I are here. The bird is
associating with an adult male Mac at north end of euc grove in the
depression in the center of the complex, in low vegetation. Female
yellowthroats is the area are additional potential confusion points. The
Mourning Warbler is bright yellow below, has a gray head, very narrow white
eyering, and obvious yellow on throat.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Carpinteria Creek Grasshopper Sparrow
While walking the Carpinteria Creek creekbed this morning I flushed a small sparrow from the side of the creek near the north end of the wastewater treatment plant. The bird flew into the vegetation on the west bank of the creek and when I got it in my binoculars I was surprised to see that it was a Grasshopper Sparrow. I tried and failed to get a photo; my autofocus kept focusing on the intervening branches and a few seconds later the bird flew across the creek and I lost it.

A short while later, though, as I walked south along the concrete embankment next to the treatment plant, the bird reappeared, first in the creekbed and then flying up onto the embankment, where I had a chance to get some photos.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Hawkwatch thoughts from today
Hi All:
This morning, Marilyn Harding, Ron Hirst, and I met at the confluence of Park Ln., Bella Vista, and Mariposa, all in the foothills of Montecito.
This is the location mentioned previously where we’ve noticed raptors circling and catching thermals. We certainly had some confirmation of the phenomenon, although nothing interesting was on tap. We watched a bunch of Turkey Vultures, joined by some local Red-tailed Hawks (?), kettle up and then peel off and fly east following the SY mountains in an eastward direction.
Alas, no raptors of interest on our watch.
Marilyn and I then drove round and up to the traditional Bella Vista hawk watch spot, although we positioned ourselves further west a bit so we could overlook the whole range and including Romero Cyn. Again, we spotted another kettle of Turkey Vultures back at that same location, and they rose up, flew towards us. A Cooper’s Hawk and some more Red-tails were flying around but they might’ve been just locals. So, we now know that raptors may congregate at certain spots which appear more favorable for them catching thermals to speed their way in migration.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Broad-winged Hawk, etc., Saturday, 17 October
At 10:45 or 10:50am, I saw a juvenile, light morph BROAD-WINGED HAWK
soaring just north of Bella Vista Open Space in northwest Goleta. Not a lot
else happening there. A Red-breasted Nuthatch, however, was the first I've
seen for a while.

Earlier, I birded El Capitan State Beach, which had a lot of the year-round
and winter residents, but a single Wilson's Warbler was the only apparent
migrant. There were many campers cramped into the lower campground, and not
a mask in sight.

Stowe House was very birdy, with tons of Yellow-rumpeds feeding on the
lawn, and a bunch in the redgums at the parking lot, but nothing of great
interest (I didn't get to the lake to see the bittern).

All,

I was at Ocean Park a little later in the morning. I had a Surf Scoter and
an RB Merganser in the river along with different numbers of the same ducks
Lisa reported. The river has blocked now and is filling up with the high
tides sloshing over the bar.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Upper Santa Ynez
This AM I drove to the east end of E Camino Cielo at Romero
Saddle--plenty of Common Poorwills on the way--where the USFS gate is
still closed. I rode my bike down the dirt road to the S Ynez River
crossing west of Jameson Lake and looked pretty hard for 2:45 hr, hoping
there might be something interesting. There were no interesting birds,
but I did see the largest bear I've ever seen in the county. Bear tracks
everywhere, so if bearspotting excites you, this might be a good spot.
ebird list <https://ebird.org/checklist/S74968090>

The USFS still has the multi-year-old post on their website that the
dirt road from Romero Saddle to the S Ynez River is closed to winter
storm damage, but my vision is apparently really bad because no storm
damage was evident to me. Would be nice to get vehicle access to this
area again.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Scaly-breasted Munias Ocean Park Lompoc
A great resource for questions like this is Paul Lehman's book, The Birds of Santa Barbara County. The latest edition can be obtained here:

http://sbcobirding.com/lehmanbosbc.html

In the latest edition (June 2020) he describes the increasing occurrence of Scaly-breasted Munia along the county's south coast starting around 2000. (I see or hear them frequently these days when birding near Carpinteria.) Of the north coast, including the area of Ocean Beach Park, he writes:

> Until late 2014, munias were still thought absent from the North Coast, even though appropriate habitat exists and the species was found locally to the north in San Luis Obispo County. Finally, on 26 October 2014, 2 were found in Santa Maria. The high count in the Santa Maria Valley was only up to 4 present at Jim May Park in Santa Maria from 9 September–14+ November 2015 until 27 were seen in Santa Maria 25 November 2019. Farther south, 5 birds were in Vandenberg Village 5 January 2015, and the first record for the Santa Ynez River mouth area came on 31 October 2015 (4).

Nico and I took a lunch time walk at the lake. Surprising was the American Bittern that stood out in the open for at least half an hour; we saw it looking across the lake from the east end of the dam. Eleven Greater Yellowlegs was a good count, and there were a dozen dowitcher sp. A Lawrence's Goldfinch flew over.
I heard from others that the Pacific Golden Plover is still present at Goleta Beach.

We see them a couple times a year here in Santa Barbara. The tree will start shaking with activity and you can see the little tiny birds popping around inside. They show up all at once and leave just as quickly. Very pretty birds. I prefer the common name, nutmeg mannikin. The official name sounds like a sick bird!

Hi all!

I had never seen Scaly-breasted Munias in the wild until today. There were a flock of them near the bathrooms along the railroad tracks in some bushes. I at first glance thought they were House Finches until I got my camera on them.

How common are they on the central coast? I have been in Lompoc for two months now and haven't seen them out there before.

There is a Red-naped Sapsucker at Miguelito Park in Lompoc, seen across from the ranger's wooden fence.I thought that I briefly saw a bit of a white chin, before a Red-breasted Sapsucker pouncedon it and knocked it off it's branch.    Hermit Thrushes are back, along with the usual occupants.    The only warblers found were Orange-crownedand Yellow-rumped Warblers.

This was a juvenile bird with light edged lower scapulars giving it a scaly appearance, but the upper scapulars now appear to be molting. It was somewhat reminiscent of a Dunlin, but slightly larger, its black decurved bill was thinner, and its black legs were longer. It had a broad white supercilium, and a white rump. It also had a gray wash on its breast."

I went to intersection of Bella Vista, Mariposa and Park and saw many hawks from 11:45-12:25 These were 1 Ferruginous, 1 Red Shouldered, 8 Red Tail, 1 Sharp Shinned plus 16 TVs. Standing 100 ft. above the intersection, on Park, gave best views of a kettle, and many individuals over the time period.

Both birds were present on the UCSB east-facing beach between 3:30 and 4:30 this afternoon in spite of heavy beach activity from people and dogs.  Understandable, as the beach was probably the only place in town that wasn't ghastly hot at that hour.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Carpinteria Birding and hawk watch
I decided to check out Carpinteria this morning.  With the exception of the Cackling Goose, none of the rarities recently reported put in an appearance and the creek was pretty quiet overall.  As for the goose, it's an interesting bird--very small bill, brown parts are rather dark, and it had an interesting call note (lie a Canada's but shorter and higher pitch).
My next stop was the tams next to the driving range, but I had to bird them from the gravel service road as there was too much activity on the golf course side to be safe there.  Not much happening in the tams either.  My final stop was Santa Monica Creek.  There was no sparrow activity at all except a couple of singing white-crowns, but it was after 9 a.m. and warming up fast.  A check of the Cape honeysuckle hedge along the creek turned up an interesting Vireo.  My first impression was that it was a Cassin's Vireo, but as I looked at it more and more, I wasn't so sure.  The head was definitely gray, not greenish but then again, it wasn't a blue-gray.  One of the wingbars appeared to be yellow, rather than white.  After getting home and checking a bunch of references, I'm still not positive about the ID.  Fall birds of both Cassin's and Blue-headed Vireos are very much alike.  If any Carp birders are in the area tomorrow, they might want to keep an eye out for this Vireo and see what they make of it.
I spent an hour and a half at the original hawk-watch site on Bella Vista Road.  I luckily found a spot to park in the shade, for it was the hottest morning up there yet this week.  It was also the dullest hawk-wise.  I had at lleast 3 Red-tailed Hawks, all of which I believe are resident birds, and there were a lot of Turkey Vultures out too, most flying from east to west along the ridge.  The only other sighting was of a single Northern Harrier gliding against the hill before it dropped out of sight. There has been a large flock of white-throated Swifts working the area the past two times I've been there.

Subject: [sbcobirding] LogMeln Friday
Finally got around to checking out the Tipu trees at the business park between 9:00 and 11:00 am today. It was fairly birdy though I think I was too late for the Northern Parula Warbler that had been there of late, at least I didn't see it. The most common Warblers by far were Yellow-rumped, but I did see a few Orange-crowned, one Yellow, and, the best bird of the day, a Lucy's Warbler which was quite cooperative and let me look at it for quite a while. Other birds around included Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Hermit Thrush, an unexpected Red-breasted Sapsucker, and various other common birds. The extent of and landscaping around the business park were impressive. Glad to have that new birding site in my sights.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] CarpCreek Cackling Goose
With hopes of finding a Pacific Wren, we spent a while in the 6th Street area of Carp Creek without success.  We did get a look at the Cackling Goose grazing north of the RR bridge.  From one angle it did look like a Cackling Goose, but from a lower angle the beak seemed to be more wedge shaped as seen with a paravipes.

I looked at a satellite image of where Bella Vista, Mariposa Dr. and Park Lane meet. There is a concentration of heat reflecting/emitting surface in that area with the big rooftops, driveways, blacktop streets, open fields and rocks. Ridge lift and the way nearby topography channels heat might also come into play. See you there soon.

Subject: [sbcobirding] more on hawkwatch info today
Hi All:
Around noon today, Marilyn and I decided to check out the hawk watch site. Since there were lots of workers parked along the wall, and no shade was available, we drove to the next promontory west, and watched looking west out over Romero Canyon & further.
We spotted a distant kettle of 9 Turkey Vultures, watched them circle higher and higher, then peel off along the ridgetop and fly over us and eastward.
We got in the car and drove west along Bella Vista, and sure enough we ended up at the landmark house that we’d spotted beneath the kettle and it was right where Mariposa joins Bella Vista Dr. This is where Nick Lethaby mentioned hawks catching the thermals on a day earlier this week, so there’s something about this location that’s good. Is it the proximity to the next big canyon to the west (San Ysidro, although BUENA Vista is a small drainage before that)?
No other raptors observed, but this feels like more info to add to the hawkwatch data!

Good birding!
Joan Lentz

Subject: [sbcobirding] Pacific Golden Plover at UCSB
HI there,

Today mid-morning I found what is believed to be a Pacific Golden Plover
while paying a visit to our local Curlew Sandpiper at UCSB "east" beach.
The Golden Plover was loosely associating with a Black-bellied Plover about
200m north of the stairs. Mark Holmgren helped determine an ID, based on
my photos that clearly show only 3 primary feathers extending past the
tertials. I have included one photo here, a couple of others in my eBird
list:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S74858665/media

thanks, Jessie

Subject: [sbcobirding] Correction: Clay-colored Sparrow (was Re: Brewer’s Sparrow along Santa Monica Creek in Carpinteria)
After much-appreciated input from a couple of experienced birders I've changed the ID to Clay-colored Sparrow. As one of them wrote to me, " There's very little streaking on the nape, the supercilium is clean buffy, it looks like there's a bit of buffiness on the breast, and the median crown stripe looks quite distinct."

Thanks, everyone!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Brewer’s Sparrow along Santa Monica Creek in Carpinteria
I had what I believe was a Brewer’s Sparrow along Santa Monica Creek in Carpinteria this morning. The bird was in a weedy fence line on the west side of the concrete creek channel just north of El Carro Lane. Details (including poor photos) are in this eBird list:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S74848130

I’m saying Brewer’s Sparrow, but I don’t have a lot of experience with the Brewer’s/Clay-colored distinction, so if people are willing to give me the benefit of their opinions I’ll appreciate it. Thanks!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Curlew Sandpiper
Our Curlew Sandpiper was present this afternoon around 4:15 p.m. on the UCSB east beach.  It was about 200 yards up the beach from the stairs, near the driftwood tepee on the beach.  AS usual, it was hanging with the Sandpipers as they fed actively at the edge of the kelp piles while the tide began to roll in.  
This bird has lost some of the scaliness of its juvenile plumage, but the white supercillium is still very pronounced.  The white rump is still easy to see most of the time.  Even when the bird does not fly, you can usually glimpse it peeking  between the folded wings.
There was a nice assortment of other shorebirds present this afternoon, including Least and Western Sandpipers; Kildeer, Semi-palmated Plovers, and Black-bellied Plovers; Black Turnstones; a lone Willet, Long-billed Curlew, and Whimbrel; and several Marbled Godwits.  A Forster's Tern was foraging just offshore.

At LLC yesterday ~ 3pm. Saw a bittern, picture attached. Seen across the east side of the lake from the asphalt path near my dad’s (Roger Millikan’s) bench. It was at the edge of the reeds and walked east until I couldn’t see it any more. I’m inexperienced enough I couldn’t tell whether it is a least bittern or an American, but I saw the American bittern within the last year and this one looked smaller to me.

I support using the street address (or anything more permanent)rather than
"LogMeIn" in the name, since the company occupying the space has changed
once in the past year or two already.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Farren Road and Bella vista Hawk watch site 10-14
I hiked up to the end of Farren Road and back again this morning, starting at 7:30 a.m.  It was not terribly birdy there this morning and it warmed up very fast.  This year, the weeds and grasses along the roadside were mowed early and are almost bare.  In the past, the roadsides have sometimes had a lot of sparrows foraging there but because of the lack of food and cover at roadside, the sparrows were mostly in the fields.
The best bird was a Loggerhead Shrike sitting on a dead shrub well out in the field next to the parking area at the top fo the first rise.  I also had 8 lark Sparrows on the wires across from the reservoir.  The latter had no ducks or other waterfowl on it.
I did a hawk watch on Bella Vista Drive for about an hour, starting at 10:50 a.m.  It was very hot but there was one shady spot along the fence so I parked there and stood mostly in the shade while watching.  A Copper's Hawk was circling over the road when I arrived.  After that, I had just Turkey Vultures and a couple of Red-tailed Hawks for a long time.  These birds may be residents.  Eventually, I caught sight of a very distant falcon that appeared to be a lot like the Peregrine Falcon I saw on Monday.  Rob Lindsay joined me after 11:30 and I left him to continue to observing the nice kettle of Turkey Vultures that developed just before I left.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Northern Parula continues at LogMeIn tipus
Hi everyone,
The NORTHERN PARULA is still present at the LogMeIn tipus as of 10:40am today. It’s in exactly the same spot that Joan Lentz had it yesterday — the northern corner of the parking lot, bordering brick wall with the railroad track behind it. Besides the parula the tipus are pretty birdy right now; there’s an abundance of (75-80) Audubon’s Warblers, with handfuls (1-5) of Nashville, Orange-crowned, Townsend’s, Black-throated Gray, Yellow, and Wilson’s as well.

Good birding.

cheers,
Deven kammerichs-Berke

Subject: [sbcobirding] Northern Parula continues at LogMeIn tipu trees
Hi All: Today, I went w/ Florence Sanchez to check out the Tipu trees at this business park off Hollister Ave. in Goleta. We met a number of other birders there, including Adrian O’Laughlin who refound one of the Northern Parula Warblers that continues here. It was in the far northwestern-most Tipu tree bordering on the RR tracks right-of-way.
Still seeing other common migrant warblers, NASHVILLE, BLACK-THROATED GRAY, YELLOW. Many, many more Yellow-rumped Warblers as the days go by.
On another subject, HAWKWATCH: both Nick and I have noticed this phenomenon, one of birds migrating along the coastal plain abandoning their journey east and veering off NORTH towards the foothills of the SY Mountains to gain altitude from the thermals before they resume their eastward progress. Has anyone else observed this about fall migrant raptors?

https://ebird.org/bcn/checklist/email?subID=S74783784 <https://ebird.org/bcn/checklist/email?subID=S74783784> today’s list

Good birding!

- Comments: "We were at Piedras and Oak Grove about 10:15 am when we saw three hawks circling in a group to the north. We identified one as a red-tailed hawk but we were unsure about the other two. The red-tailed hawk appeared larger than the other two birds. The other two were mostly white underneath, with black wingtips. Eventually, the red-tailed hawk left the circle and the other two continued to circle to the north. As we weren't sure what else they could be (we weren't thinking of broad-winged hawks at the time), we eventually made the assumption that the original three was a group of red-tailed hawks, though the two didn't look like red-tailed hawks to either of us. Later, seeing John C.'s photos and description allowed us to make the connection that we had seen the same two broad-winged hawks that he had. The two birds in question looked the same as those in John's photos, their behavior was the same, and we saw them just to the west of John about 15 minutes before he saw them."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bella Vista Drive Hawkwatch Oct 12
I made it up to the Hawk Watch spot on Bella Vista Drive late this morning, where I encountered Carpinteria Birders Tom an dLaurel who had been there a little while.  Though it was very warm for us, conditions were great for the soaring birds that were present.  They rode the thermals over the ridgeline in long, lazy circles.  However, there just weren't a lot of BirdsTaking advantage of them.
Turkey Vultures were the most common species, followed by Red-tailed Hawks.  There is an apparently resident pair that soared together two or three times but we saw at least one other individual.  Highlight of the time I was there was a Peregrine Falcon, who also circled and glided for a long time.  The other raptor species seend was a Northern Harrier.  Around 11:30 a.m., we had a nice group of Harrier, Peregrine, 2 Ravens, and a REd-tailed Hawk all circling at once.
There is minimal shade in which to sit/stand because of the worker's trucks parked along the fence where we usually hang out, and even in the shade, it was getting hot.   One good thing is that the partial road closure means less through traffic going by, but large trucks will sometimes pass on their way to the debris basin work site to the west.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bella Vista 'falconwatch'
All,

After I took over from Joan and Jake on Sunday afternoon, I failed to see
much other than a Merlin and a few Red-tails. This morning, I tried a new
spot at Bella Vista x Mariposa, a bit west of the regular spot. I have seen
birds thermaling up on a ridge at this spot from the regular spot. It has a
more 360 degree view here, although it seems that the best thermal route
may be even further west as it seemed birds were sneaking by just over the
ridge above me. I was able to see a couple each of Cooper's and
Sharp-shinneds. Two of these were flying out over the coastal plain and
made a 90 degree course change to thermal up near where I was, which seemed
to indicate some value in this spot. On the ridge above me, I saw both
Prairie and Peregrine Falcons, a Northern Harrier, and 2 WT Kites. A
perched Kestrel gave me all four falcons along this stretch in <24 hours.
In addition to regular looks at TVs and Red-taileds, I saw one
Red-shouldered and eventually had another small buteo fly by rather
distantly for several minutes out over the coastal plain that I felt
comfortable calling a Broad-winged based on the relatively pointed wings
and apparent lack of the pale primary panel.

I birded along Quiota creek on the quiet part of Refugio road this morning
before I finally got chased out by the relentless flies.

The best birds were 2 pink-sided juncos and a sharp-shinned hawk. There
were lots of all the expected birds. There is water in the creek in
different spots and there is a metal cattle tank not far off the road that
is leaking and the water is attracting lots of birds and animals.

Happy Birding!

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Big Sit
I did a Big Sit at the UCSB Lagoon today to compare against Linus's
yesterday. I didn't do quite as well - ended up at 64 species. I still
think this site has a lot of potential for big sits, though.

Christian Puga made it out today for a bit as well. We didn't see any very
unusual species, but the highlight for me was watching our campus Peregrine
try (unsuccessfully) for about a minute to take one of the two Kingfishers
that hangs out at the Lagoon. The Kingfisher flew back and forth low over
the water with the falcon pursuing it and any time the falcon got close it
would dive shallowly into the water, as if after a fish, and then pop right
back up after the falcon had passed. Eventually the Peregrine gave up and
afterwards the two Kingfishers flew several angry, rattling victory laps
back and forth over the lagoon. Pretty cool interaction and not something
I've seen before!

I set up at (34.407507, -119.846039) <https://goo.gl/maps/oAEhxgPZV399q2UC9>,
but if I were to do this again I think I might try a slightly different
spot. The views from here are best to the east and south which was a bit
glaring today with cloudless sun from dawn onwards.

Subject: [sbcobirding] hawk watching today at Bella Vista - 2-4 pm
Hi All:
Today I went with Marilyn Harding and Carol Goodell up to the hawk watch site on Bella Vista. Conditions were perfect, clear with slight north/northwest breeze. We were soon joined by Jay and Rosey Bishop and their son. As we left, Nick Lethaby appeared.
There was a mild movement of some raptors, including Turkey Vultures, but only one of interest: a very dark individual—small raptor. Jay had the only spotting scope and he was on it. The rest of us had OK views, although I have never been confident with Broad-winged Hawk identification. My only experience has been with light morph juveniles.
This bird was a small raptor flying fast over the ridge from west to east, it was completely dark on the head, chest and belly, all the way out to the outline of the inner wing linings. The outer parts of the wing were pale white. The tail appeared to have one subterminal band, pale but not gleaming white. Otherwise, the whole bird was dark brown/black from above and as described below.
Having looked at images online, I am willing to consider that this might’ve been a dark morph BROAD-WINGED HAWK, but I am not recording it as such. Wanted to get the information out there….

Good birding!

Joan Lentz

Subject: [sbcobirding] Northern Bobwhites at Lake Los Carneros
Hi All,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Sorry this message wasn't more timely,
but I didn't realize I had to subscribe prior to posting messages.

I believe I saw two northern bobwhites in the NW corner of LLC this
morning. At least one was a female, but I'm unsure about the other one. I
observed them for several minutes in the undergrowth along the pond-side of
the path that runs along the NW corner of the pond. I've linked my eBird
checklist that has the one good photo I took attached (my iphone held up to
my binoculars is not great).

https://ebird.org/checklist/S74695621


Thank you,
Andrew McGrath

I found a Vermilion Flycatcher while golfing at the SMCC this morning.  I'm presuming this is the same male that has been here last year and the year before (immature male in 2018).  Hopefully he'll stick around for a few months as he did last year.
I went back this afternoon to take pictures to better document its presence.  He is at the same location where he's always been found i.e. near the pond by the #5 tee box.   Checklist is here and includes a picture.

Subject: [sbcobirding] LogMeIn complex
Nick spotted the Lucy's Warbler at the western edge of the LogMeIn office
complex in Goleta at about 11:30 this morning. It was fairly birdy, but no
sign of a Northern Parula. Otherwise, we saw several each of Yellow and
Townsend's, one Black-throated Gray, a Nashville's, Orange-crowneds, and
lots of Audubon's Warblers.

Someone reported a Virginia's to eBird, supposedly in the northeast corner.
Not sure if the observer meant "northwest", since I didn't think there was
much habitat in the northeast. The person also reported a MacGillivray's
among the eucalyptus, I assume meaning those in the center of the complex,
opposite the north end of Coronado. This is getting pretty late for both
species.

Dave

I just had an immature light-morph Broad-winged Hawk circling high over the hill north of the Bella Vista Drive hawkwatch site in Montecito. It departed to the east, but just letting folks know so they can keep an eye out for more.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Big Sit
Hi all,

I did a Big Sit at Haskell's Beach today, on the little knoll southeast of
the Bacara Resort (34.4307914, -119.9147157). I started at 6.15 am and
stayed the rest of the day. Christian Puga joined for a couple of hours in
the morning and another friend for a couple of hours in the afternoon. With
their help, I managed to see a respectable 72 species from within my 17 ft
circle. All but two were expected at this time and location. The exceptions
were a Northern Waterthrush in the creek below, and two White Pelicans
flying by inland.

To my knowledge, 72 is the highest count for a Big Sit in the county. I
really enjoyed the day and I hope more people will have an opportunity to
do a Big Sit next year.

Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S74672150

- Comments: "A tentative report for now until I get the photos loaded onto my computer and I can study the bird in more depth. Associating with a female LAZB. A molting male. This bird showed blue streaking in the belly and dusky undertail coverts, both of which should indicate that the individual was not a pure LAZB. The wing bars were also not very strong/white, rather dull and buffy. It is going to be difficult to eliminate a hybrid on this bird I suspect, although I think a hybrid would be even rarer for what it’s worth. Attached is a back-of-camera photo, I’ll upload my other photos and study this more closely when I return to Washington."

Subject: [sbcobirding] various observations, Santa Ynez Valley
The DARK-LORED WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW is sticking around in my Solvang
backyard and today I managed a somewhat Flickr-able photo:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/van_dam/50447765566/

Jim Moore recommended to me this recent webinar "Subspecies of
White-crowned Sparrow" by Jon Dunn and Kimball Garrett:
https://www.losangelesbirders.org/webinars/white_crowned_sparrows.html
<https://www.losangelesbirders.org/webinars/white_crowned_sparrows.html>
In the end I'm filing this individual as an "oriantha", as I don't see any
evidence that this is the much less likely "leucophrys" subspecies.

Other bird developments in Santa Ynez Valley this past week: I'm seeing a
definite uptick in CASSIN'S KINGBIRDS, YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS, and WESTERN
BLUEBIRDS. Slightly above average Solvang birds today were: PINE SISKIN,
GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW, LARK SPARROW, and WESTERN TANAGER.

The Golden Gate Raptor Observatory is still seeing good numbers of
Broad-winged Hawks, so I haven't given up on those yet for this season.

Wim

Late this morning on top of the Elings Park South hill were about 15 Vaux's Swifts sweeping back and forth. Also one Hermit Thrush and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet in the company of many more common birds on the backside of the hill along the old Sierra Club Trail.

Subject: [sbcobirding] 2 Northern Parula warblers at LogMeIn
Andy McGrath pointed out to us the location of the No. Parula (at
34.4315 -119.89294). Soon several of us saw what appeared to be a second
Parula with the first one. One showed a weakly marked chest pattern, the
other was more strongly marked. This is at the far NW corner of the
LogMeIn Tipu Forest parking lot.
Activity was pretty strong. Also seen in order of abundance were
Yellow-rumped Wa, Yellow Wa, Ruby-crowned Ki, Orange-crowned Wa, Townsend's
Wa, and a Nashville Wa. Maybe some others that I can't recall.

All:
I birded Triangle Pond, A Street Ponds, North Blosser Road Flood Control Pond and Santa Maria Mesa Road Ponds in the North County this morning.  Nothing noteworthy except 5 Ring Necked Ducks at the Blosser Road Flood Control Pond.  These are the first RNDUs I've seen in the North County this fall.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Riviera Business Park, and Yellow-breasted Chat in Mission Canyon Heights
I had an hour (minus commuting time) between zoom meetings yesterday afternoon so I decided to try the fountain/pool at the Riviera Business Park. I was there from about 2:30 to 3:20 and the activity was almost frenetic, with birds coming and going constantly. By far the most common were Yellow-rumps with significant numbers of Yellow and Orange-crowned Warblers. R-C Kinglets put in some skittish appearances as did S-B Munias. Best birds were one Black-throated Grey Warbler and one or two (may have been two visits by the same individual) male Western Tanagers.

However, when I got home and my meeting launched, a Yellow-breasted Chat visited my birdbath (in Mission Canyon Heights). This is only the second time I've seen that species here. It has not been back today.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Lake Los Carneros Friday
Yesterday afternoon there were 2 OSPREY at LLC. I saw both at the same time perched about 300 yards apart. One was an adult and the other was possibly a juvenile but I couldn't see the back well enough to be sure.

I’ve never seen more than 1 osprey at LLC in many years of birding here.

Land bird migration was zilch, although I didn’t bird the eucs on the east side of the lake.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Laguna Blanca in Santa Barbara
I know of no better inland shorebirding along the South Coast than
currently at Laguna Blanca. Water is evaporating and it will soon be dry.
Extensive bulldozing of the margins is ongoing. Today, there were 6
Pectoral Sandpipers remaining, single Western and Least Sandpipers, 29
dowitchers, 19 Greater Yellowlegs, 40 and 10 Snowy and Great Egrets, and 2
White-faced Ibis.
A scope is imperative, bird always only from the road edge surrounding the
golf course.

Subject: [sbcobirding] UCSB East Beach this morning
I took a walk up the beach today, starting about 9:30 a.m.  The tide was coming in, which caused a lot of movement among the birds, but there still was a great assortment of shorebirds present and viewing conditions were ideal.  I did not see the Curlew Sandpiper, but 2 other birders I met had it  near the wooden steps before I arrived.  The kelp piles have shifted so that the biggest accumulation is just south of the steps as you walk toward Campus Point.
Birds I had this morning included 1 Kildeer, 8 Black-bellied Plovers, and numerous Semi-palmated Plovers; 1 Willet, 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 6 Marbled Godwits, 1 Whimbrel, and 1 Long-billed Curlew; 1 Spotted Sandpiper, 6 Black Turnstones, abundant numbers of Least Sandpipers and Sanderlings, and 2 Western Sandpipers.
I checked the puddle at the end of Coronado Drive and there was a moderate amount of activity there, but all from common birds that one would expect this time of year.

For some reason, my post from this morning did not go through, so I'm trying again.  I also never got Ron Hirst's post form this afternoon.  Not sure what is happening with the listserve.  Based on Ron's post, the Black and white warbler I got a glimpse of must have been the Black-throated Gray Warbler that is hanging around.

I waited until about 9 a.m. to go to MacKenzie Park but it still was pretty overcast and viewing wa harder than when I was there on Monday.  Consequently, many warblers in the lerpy Eucs went unidentified, but I pulled out an unexpected Tennessee Warbler in the mix.  Grounds person was working in the baseball fields, so no chance to check out sparrows.
Later in the morning after the sun came out, I went up to the Riviera Business complex to check out the center court fountain.  It was very quiet and had been so according to 2 other birders on the spot.  Mario and Andrea left  some time after 11.  At 11:20, the place exploded with warblers coming down to drink and bathe.
At one time, I counted 5 Yellow Warblers, 2 Wilson's Warblers, 2 orange-crowned Warblers (both Gray-headed form) and at least 3 Yellow-rumped Warblers along with a White-crowned Sparrow.  I had a quick flash of a bird coming down that was all black and white and seemed to have black and white stripes on the crown, which would make it a Black-and-white Warbler.  It dropped out of sight into a clump of sedges behind the hedge.  I waited for it to fly up again so I could identify it, but when it didn't reappear, I changed position so that I could see if it was still there.  It wasn't!  Not sure how it got out without my seeing it.
At 11:25, it was like someone rang a bell and all the birds departed as quickly as they came.  After that, nothing came down but a single Yellow Warbler and that only very briefly.  I waited around another 15 minutes but the activity was done.

What I believe was a different Grasshopper Sparrow than the one I saw a couple of weeks ago was at Elings Park this evening. It was a noticeably brighter-looking individual. There are finally birds to look through at the park, mostly White-crowned and Savannah Sparrows. For the first time in a couple of months there were more birds than people and dogs.

All,

Wanted to second Ron's comment that the afternoon (after 3.00) is much
better at the mirror pond. I and others had the Blackpoll, 2 Nashvilles, 2
BT Grays in addition to the commoner warblers.

Carp Creek was miserably bad this AM with virtually no warblers.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Leucistic Turkey Vulture Foxen Canyon
All - Not sure if this bird has been reported by others but it's a pretty interesting leucistic Turkey Vulture. I saw it along Foxen Canyon Sept 14th and I have had a couple of second hand reports from Sedgwick Reserve that seem to fit. Three views here, one includes other TV's for comparison:

Subject: [sbcobirding] Morning Birding Oct. 7
I waited until about 9 a.m. to go to MacKenzie Park but it still was pretty overcast and viewing wa harder than when I was there on Monday.  Consequently, many warblers in the lerpy Eucs went unidentified, but I pulled out an unexpected Tennessee Warbler in the mix.  Grounds person was working in the baseball fields, so no chance to check out sparrows.
Later in the morning after the sun came out, I went up to the Riviera Business complex to check out the center court fountain.  It was very quiet and had been so according to 2 other birders on the spot.  Mario and Andrea left  some time after 11.  At 11:20, the place exploded with warblers coming down to drink and bathe.
At one time, I counted 5 Yellow Warblers, 2 Wilson's Warblers, 2 orange-crowned Warblers (both Gray-headed form) and at least 3 Yellow-rumped Warblers along with a White-crowned Sparrow.  I had a quick flash of a bird coming down that was all black and white and seemed to have black and white stripes on the crown, which would make it a Black-and-white Warbler.  It dropped out of sight into a clump of sedges behind the hedge.  I waited for it to fly up again so I could identify it, but when it didn't reappear, I changed position so that I could see if it was still there.  It wasn't!  Not sure how it got out without my seeing it.
At 11:25, it was like someone rang a bell and all the birds departed as quickly as they came.  After that, nothing came down but a single Yellow Warbler and that only very briefly.  I waited around another 15 minutes but the activity was done.
Florence Sanchez

Thanks all for your interest in my post.
I think that maybe it was a common yellowthroat female with a very stout
bill.

Subject: [sbcobirding] La Cumbre Peak Tuesday morning
I wanted a change of pace from lerpy eucs do headed to the Peak to see if there was anything of interest there.  The answer:  not much!  
Steller's Jays continue at the Peak but otherwise, no montane birds--just local chaparral species and a Hairy Woodpecker.  Ruby-crowned Kinglets have returned.  I had no Yellow-rumps at the Peak but picked up a couple between the Peak and the first communication station to the west.
The Second communications station also did not have much of interest.  Winter returnees to this location included Say's Phoebe, Hermit Thrush, and Golden-crowned Sparrow.
Neither Toyon nor Madrone berries are ripe yet.  Action may pick up when they do turn red, and when the weather gets cooler.
Fall Flowers are few.  A few California Fuchsia and Goldenrod plants are still blooming, along with a small pink aster.  There were also a few plants of a yellow-centered "daisy" with gray-green foliage whose ID I am still working on.

Subject: [sbcobirding] MacKenzie Park Today
With curiosity getting the best of us, David and Janice Levasheff, Peggy and myself ventured into MacKenzie Park at 8:30 this morning.
The two large Lerp'd Eucs just east of the parking lot were full of birds. Cedar waxwings, and later on Band-tail pigeons commandeered the top. There was a variety of expected warblers with yellow-rumps being plentiful. We also had Western Tanager’s, an Oriole SP, and a Black *-* headed Grosbeak in the trees. As Florence noted, many hummers were buzzing around as well.
Turning our attention to the baseball fields, we turn ed up most of the expected species with an surprise Chipping Sparrow in the mix.
This park has a lot to offer, not the least of which is a convenient parking lot, working bathrooms and a variety of habitats in a compact space. We will be sure to add this park to our birding circuit.
A big thanks to Adam and Florence on this. Must have driven by it hundreds of times and never thought to bird it!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Warbler with large heavy bill
This late afternoon (4:45 - 5:30) I sat by the pond at the Riviera Business
Park. It was bristling with warblers, with the heavy majority being
yellow-rumped. Also seen were Wilson's, Yellow, orange-crowned, 1 female
black-throated gray, the blackpoll that has been seen up there and 2
Nashville.

Twice I got good looks at a very faded looking warbler with a really
larger, stout bill. The bill was a real stand out. At first I thought it
might be a vireo. The bird had a faded yellow drab head and chest, whitish
belly and drab olive back. It was in the vegetation in the pond.

If anyone goes there in the next days please keep an eye out. I'd like to
get some feedback on what it might be.

Thanks,

Rob Hofberg

Subject: [sbcobirding] Roblar Avenue, 2020-10-06
This morning I non-rigorously checked out the farm lands around Roblar
Avenue in Los Olivos, and it is looking promising. With my binoculars I had
about 50 Savannah + White-crowned Sparrows, and about 100 Horned Larks +
American Pipits. With a scope, patience, and some luck something good
should be findable there. These fields are to the north and south of Roblar
Avenue, between Dunn School and the lavender farm. These fields are in
active use so there is a lot of water and vegetation for the birds, but
there are also people working in the field most of the times.

All,

Very little of note. I had a Palm Warbler just behind the beach on the path
to the Dune Pond at COPR. On the beach was a spiffy unusally dark Say's
Phoebe. Yesterday, at Refugio, Dolores Pollock pointed out a WW Dove
sitting in a tree by the bridge.

There was quite a lot of warbler activity in the large Euc west of the stone bridge at Refugio SB this am. And as Brad mentioned in his post, there were several Nashville Warblers foraging in this Euc and on occasions in the nearby willows on the west bank of the creek.  Only other bird of note was a Red-breasted Sapsucker that appeared briefly high up in the Euc.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] MacKenzie Park Black-and-white Warbler, Lerps
I checked MacKenzie Park today on my way to and from errands at Loretto Plaza.  I did not turn up a Black and White Warbler, But the lerpy eucs Adams noted in his report continue to be full of birds, which are not too hard to see.  The foliage is not dense on these trees though they are rather tall.
I had a variety of expected Warblers along with Warbling Vireos, Cedar Waxwings, and at least 3 different Western Tanagers.  For a heart-stoping moment, I thought one of them might be a scarlet tanager because it was bright yellow, but then I was able to see the white wingbars and that ended that.
There are also a lot of hummingbirds in these trees, with Rufous-Allen's type being the most common.   One of them was really bright orange and looked like a ball of orange all over when the sun hit it in flight.  It was never close enough to me to be sure, but I have a feeling this is a male Rufous, though such sightings would be rare this time of year.
To others who may want to bird this park, trying checking the pepper trees for Sapsuckers.  They have turned up here in some past winters. None found today.

A quick stop at MacKenzie Park (State and Alamar) yielded a male BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER in the Tipu trees along the eastern baseball field.

There are also two productive lerpy red gum Eucalyptus here with lots of birds. There are two in the main parking lot, the northern of that pair drawing most of the birds and another Located directly behind the MacKenzie center that also has lots of activity. Birds present today in these trees: HERMIT, AUDUBON’S, YELLOW, NASHVILLE, ORANGE-CROWNED, and WILSON’S WARBLERS, CEDAR WAXWING, WESTERN TANAGER, WARBLING VIREO, and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, among others. These trees are drawing in good numbers and diversity—keep an eye out for any additional lerp-infested red gums and please post any that are accessible and productive.

Other than the Black-and-white Warbler, the Tipus continue to attract/hold very few birds.

Good luck,
Adam

Subject: [sbcobirding] Gaviota, Refugio, Rocky Nook
For various reasons I ended up at these three places today.
Gaviota: Bad news: dead, and has been for a week. Good news: campground
is closed through March.
Refugio: Some action, including 3 Nashville Warblers. I had to leave
before making a thorough survey, but Adrian was there when I left and
can fill in the blanks.
Rocky Nook: Nuthin' special.

Subject: [sbcobirding] adventures in backyard birding, Solvang, 2020-09-05
Last night dumped a lot of White-crowned Sparrows in my Solvang backyard,
and
I just photographed a dark-lored one. Per [Lehman] this should either be *Z.
l. oriantha* (likely) or *Z. l. leucophrys* (less likely). Another bird was
either *Z. l. **pugetensis* or *Z. l. **nuttalli,* but I did not yet manage
to photograph that one.

Advice on how to separate between those subspecies is welcome.

Wim

Subject: [sbcobirding] MacKenzie Park Black-and-white Warbler, Lerps
A quick stop at MacKenzie Park (State and Alamar) yielded a male BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER in the Tipu trees along the eastern baseball field.

There are also two productive lerpy red gum Eucalyptus here with lots of birds. There are two in the main parking lot, the northern of that pair drawing most of the birds and another Located directly behind the MacKenzie center that also has lots of activity. Birds present today in these trees: HERMIT, AUDUBON’S, YELLOW, NASHVILLE, ORANGE-CROWNED, and WILSON’S WARBLERS, CEDAR WAXWING, WESTERN TANAGER, WARBLING VIREO, and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, among others. These trees are drawing in good numbers and diversity—keep an eye out for any additional lerp-infested red gums and please post any that are accessible and productive.

Other than the Black-and-white Warbler, the Tipus continue to attract/hold very few birds.

Good luck,
Adam

Elings Park -- grim. There were a few Vaux's Swifts overhead (yesterday there were hundreds--perhaps over a thousand--to the north and south of the park).
Ellwood and NCOS (or Ocean Meadows as Florence still refers to it--much more poetic)-- not quite as grim. A few common migrants at the end of Coronado, including a couple of Hermit Thrushes. Best birds at Ocean Meadows were two late Cliff Swallows flying over. A N. Harrier was scaring up the peeps.

From: Dave Compton <davcompton60...>
Subject: [sbcobirding] Saturday south coast birding
Today, I birded La Mesa Park and the Riviera Park area in Santa Barbara,
and the LogMeIn complex off Hollister in western Goleta. The best I could
come up with was a BLACKPOLL WARBLER that came to the Riviera Park
reflecting pool at about 9:30am.

I started at La Mesa Park, which is still pretty birdy, but had a poor
variety of migrants, almost all of which were in lerpy eucs in the southern
part of the park and east along Shoreline Dr., near Washington School.
Other than Yellow Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers, and small groups of
Vaux's Swifts flying east, there were almost no other migrants.

The variety was greater at Riviera Park, which also had lots of Yellows and
Yellow-rumps, but also had the Blackpoll, a couple of Black-throated Grays,
Wilson's and Orange-crowneds, and a Nashville spotted by Andrea and Mario.
There were also a few Western Tanagers and single Black-headed Grosbeak, a
species that has been strangely scarce this fall in the area. Overall, this
area is still really birdy. Despite several people walking around the area
quite a bit, I didn't hear of anyone seeing the Blackpoll, except for the
one time at the reflecting pool/fountain.

At LogMeIn, the number of migrants has dropped in the past week, but there
are still decent numbers in the central part of the complex, where there
were Yellows, Wilson's, Townsend's, Orange-crowneds, and some others. Twice
during my visit, I heard what sounded like a Pacific Wren, which would be
an odd bird to get here. Since I heard the vocalizations 20 minutes apart
in different parts of the complex, I suspect one was moving around, looking
for suitable habitat. But I could never nail the bird down. I last heard
the vocalization in the far northwest, in a low hedge that provided dense
cover near the ground.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Gaviota - Blackpoll Warbler, Refugio Tennessee Warbler (continuing)
At Refugio this morning the big Euc had the continuing Tennessee Warbler, Nashville Warbler and a number of other common migrant warblers. I also walked under the freeway and birded all the way up to the second creek crossing and back. It was relatively quiet but a second Nashville and a Black-throated Gray were seen.

At Gaviota a Blackpoll Warbler was in the trees near the base of the pier, the creek crossing near the Kiosk had a nice Black-throated Gray. Looks at the Blackpoll:

Subject: [sbcobirding] Continuing Curlew Sandpiper
While Nick may have taken this bird off the ultra-rarity list for our area since it has been around so long, it is still around and was easy to find in the middle of this morning foraging in its usual spot a few hundred yards towards Goleta Beach from the stairs below Parking Lot 6 at UCSB. It was joined by at least 3 Dunlin and a host of other common shorebirds. A jogger and, later, a dog disturbed these birds but the flocks were easy to follow until they settled at some nearby spot and the Curlew Sandpiper was easy to re-find. The kelp racks which seem to be providing a lot of shorebird food are smaller than they were but still reasonably abundant so there is reason to think this bird will be around a while yet.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] Ultra rare bird alert change
All,

For those of you who subscribe to the hourly ultra rare bird alert, please
be advised that I have made Curlew Sandpiper no longer rare to prevent
continued RBAs for this long-staying individual. So the fact you are not
seeing these RBAs (assuming things work as I expect), doesn't mean the bird
has gone.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Goleta Birding
I went to Ocean Meadows early this morning.  There was a lot of activity in the willows as one comes in and also in the ground covers, but the best bird I could turn up was a Yellow Warbler.  No sign of a White-winged Dove.  However, I had my scope and it got in the way of good landbird birding.
I checked the channel that runs the length of the reserve and has a little water in it up to the Phelps Bridge.   I picked up Kildeer, Western and Least Sandpipers, and somewhere a Greater Yellowlegs was calling.  No other peeps observed.  At the bridge, a Green Heron was Patiently waiting for something to stab at. On my way back, a Merlin made several passes over the shorebirds, scattering them away.
I checked the Evergreen open space and it was not worth the effort.  The park is dry and Eucs do no have lerps.  At Bella Vista Open space, I ran into Nick .  Wemade a diligent search of the Park but turned up nothinig of note.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Prisoner's Harbor, SCI
I decided to visit Prisoner's becuase of the offshore flow, although my
impression is that this is invariably over forecast as it was today.

Best birds were Tennessee and Nashville Warblers, Green-tailed Towhee, and
3 Brewer's Sparrows.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Barbara CBC
Greetings birders,

We are starting the planning for the 121st Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). We’ll be assessing the Covid-related guidelines from National Audubon as well as the rules for Santa Barbara County and the state before we make our final decision. The count date is Saturday, January 2, 2021. It’s clear that if we decide to go forward, this will definitely be a different CBC than in years past in terms of gatherings, but we hope to find a creative approach to conducting the survey that will work for all of us. National Audubon’s CBC guidelines request that compilers wait until November 15 to make a final decision, allowing everyone time to evaluate the latest Covid status in their area. They fully support canceling this year’s effort if needed; we hope we don’t have to. Please contact the compilers in our neighboring regions about the status of their CBCs; we are all doing our best to sort out the details!

We will let you know about the Santa Barbara CBC on November 15th. Until then, stay healthy and enjoy the fall birding!

Rebecca Coulter, Liz Muraoka, Joan Murdoch and Libby Patten
SB CBC Coordinators

Hello,

I just found a white winged dove. It flew into a pine
around 34.420864,-119.877129. it's been in the same place for several
minutes but is difficult to see. I first saw it as it flew over the channel
where its wing patches were obvious. I have diagnostic photos I'll post
later.

I came out to see the pectoral sandpiper which continues. There's also a
Baird's sandpiper associating with the western sandpipers. I haven't seen
the tropical kingbird yet.

Happy autumn,
Teale Fristoe

Hello,

On August 22nd I noticed a large raptor like bird flying overhead in Orcutt
just as it was about to go out of view over the horizon and I managed to
take a few pictures. I didn't take any notes and only was able to view it
through the camera viewfinder for a few seconds while I was fumbling with
the manual focus. My recollection was that it's wingspan was close to that
of a turkey vulture. I was astonished after downloading the pictures that
it looks like a seabird of some sort. I'm pretty certain this bird is
considerably larger than a gull. Hoping someone can give me an idea what it
might be. Thank you in advance.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Red-shouldered Hawk
I’m posting to ask for comments on a Red-shouldered Hawk I saw today on Gobernador Canyon Rd., in Carp. I had long, close-up looks at this particularly beautiful bird as it fed on the ground and flew to a near-by tree. Its entire breast and belly was unstreaked mahogany. Its upper back, also, was mahogany streaked with black. Its lower back was the usual speckled appearance. The tail had the expected thin white terminal band and a broad black sub-terminal. It was the pure mahogany front that seemed unusual.

Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Hi all,

Learner/lurker here, and my first post.  Woohoo 🥳

Reported 2 banded SNPL I saw on 9/28/20 to the email group provided by Audubon, and have results on one so far.

SNPL #1 Fledged from Oceano Dunes SVRA in 2018, last seen at Jalama 10/10/2019.

The second bird I’ve attached, and am waiting for response. I’m not sure if all the bands are present; will post when I hear back.

On another note, a quick thanks for all the shared knowledge and experience I find here. I love reading about the birds and locations; and appreciate any hints this newbie can pick up!

- Comments: "Continuing bird. Seen this morning just north of the stairs down to the beach from the parking lot. Moving around erratically with its posse of Sanderlings. Slightly larger than SANDs, with long drooping bill, dark, scaly upperparts, white belly and undertail coverts. A couple of Dunlin were nearby which I homed in on initially, and looked somewhat similar in size and bill shape, but the CUSA stood out upon closer scrutiny with its distinct broad white supercilium and scaly pattern on the back and tertials. Was clued in to the location of the bird by a friendly birder I met on the beach, but can’t remember his name. Thank you kind sir!"

But then I noticed the pronounced greenish tinge to the bird's back, it's whiter underparts. The faint supercilium is similar to the Orange-crowned Warbler, and the head was a dull yellowish/gray. As in the Orange-crowned, the Tennessee shows that tiny white mark at the bird's "shoulder." A first for my pond."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Big Sit and Big Day
Hi all,

There are two national/global birding events coming up in October and both
are covid-compatible and sort of social (in that lots of people are
participating nation-/world-wide even as people might go out individually).

First, a reminder that the annual *Big Sit* organized by the New Haven Bird
Club is coming up on October 10-11. More info on http://thebigsit.org. I'll
be doing a Big Sit near Haskell's Beach, probably on the 10th, and
possibly another one by the UCSB Campus Lagoon on the 11th.

Also, the *eBird October Big Day* is taking place on October 17. Info here
<https://ebird.org/octoberbigday>. I looked through the archive for this
email list and it seems like several Big Days have been done here in
spring, but I couldn't find any for the fall. I might go birding at least
part of the day. If anyone has any tips for how to plan a Big Day here in
the fall, or wants to join forces (in a socially distant manner), feel free
to reach out.

Linus

Subject: [sbcobirding] Green-tailed Towhee
Still present this morning in Chase Palm Park about 7:45 a.m.  It was foraging along the curved path that goes behind the building behind of the performance stage.  Eventually it flew across the path to a clump of bougainvillea and I lost sight of it.  I searched thoroughly for a long time but did not turn up a Dickcissel.  I think the weedy field behind the tall green fence might actually be better habitat for it, but there's no access.
I checked the lerpy euc near the cypress tree and it is still pulling in warblers, but I had nothing rare.  Just Yellow-rumps, lots of Yellows, a Black-throated gray, 1 Orange-crowned.  Elsewhere in the park I heard Wilson's and Common Yellowthroats.
Later I checked the central fountain at the Riviera Business complex and it was still pulling in warblers.  They come down to the edge or stand on the water hyacinths to drink and bathe.  Today I had only yellows and Yellow-rumps.  Some of the Yellow Warblers at both locations are very bright males.
My final stop was to make another try for that elusive American Redstart at Bella Vista open space.  I left yesterday a little after 11:30 only to read it showed up close to 1 o'clock, so I stayed through that time today without success.  I'm now 0 for 5 on that one.  Please continue to post if it shows up again.
Florence Sanchez

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Maria Vermilion Flycatcher
Continuing female VERMILION FLYCATCHER at Jim May Park in Santa Maria this
morning. It was found flycatching from the short trees immediately to the
west of the playground structure. This was originally reported to eBird on
9/27 by Erik Dodos and if I recall Erik photographed the bird perched on
the split rail fence. Lots of dowitchers and peeps in the muddy lake bottom
today but nothing unusual among them.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S74249820

Earlier in the AM I stopped by Jack O'Connel Park in Guadalupe but the ball
field was ploverless. I did have a HY Hermit Warbler in a cypress near the
parking lot.

Hi Meg, This is shocking. Very sorry to hear about the stealing. You are describing parking near the pier and restaurant, That area seemed so safe being so public and with many people and cars. Please say what time of day this was and whether it was crowded as usual. Was there another car parked next to yours that would have provided the thief cover to do the extensive ingress thievery? Birders park at Goleta Beach all the time. How awful... Best, Ron Hirst, SB

It is mimicry and all Gopher Snakes know how to do it. If you google Gopher
Snake mimicry, there are videos that show this. It's their defense and
works well!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Tennessee Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler at my pond today
Hi All:
Anyone who’s noticing fall migration is also looking at the weather, and perhaps that north wind has blown recent migrants into town? I’m seeing a definite turn-over at my pond, especially today, when I had two visitors — although “low end” when it comes to “rarity”— that I’d never seen before there: Tennessee Warbler and Black-and-White Warbler.
So much fun to hear about all the great birds everyone’s finding, and I was beginning to wonder if they were all found in diseased introduced trees! Not so. Yay!
Get out & keep watching — this is the exciting time!

That's very interesting. I thought the body markings and shape looked like
a Gopher Snake too but then saw the head and agree that looks like a
rattlesnake. I suspect this is some kind of mimicry.

Thanks to those who enlightened me about the “rattlesnake” that turns out was a gopher snake assuming the shape and posture of a rattler. That triangular head sure had me fooled.
