Subject: [sbcobirding] north of the RR tracks down by Chase Palm Park
Hi All:
This morning Mark Holmgren and I sort of “discovered” a place that might be productive for birds as we go into the winter season and begin to think about our CBCs and good places to bird.
We walked from west to east in Chase Palm Park, which was boring, but then, in order to get the light behind us, we walked north along Calle Cesar Chavez, then east along the RR tracks back towards Laguna Creek.
This “new” spot is a bit of restored habitat, well-watered, that lies directly south of the new “desal” plant. Its fenced, of course. There are all sorts of nice shrubs thriving there, and Mark and I believe that we had a Western Kingbird perched on the fence looking in from the RR tracks. The whole place was very birdy indeed. Lots of elderberry bushes, other native shrubs, sparrows, Cassin’s Kingbird, Say’s Phoebe.
Going further along, the willows and reeds at Laguna Creek (I believe this is the one that goes out at the “East Beach outfall” as we call it) held numerous Yellow-rumps and a few common warblers bathing. ANYTHING COULD DROP IN at these two fairly coastal spots, so just a heads up!
You can see our report on e-Bird.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Farren Road
I walked up and down Farren Road this morning.  Nothing too unusual was found but there were lots of the "usual suspects" for this location.  Best birds were a Red-breasted Sapsucker in the Calif. pepper trees on the west side of the road just above the oak woodland, and a Roadrunner crossing the road on my way down that was also fairly near this location.  I heard a couple of Ground doves calling. There are waterfowl on the reservoir, but without aa scope I could only do a fair job of identifying some of them (Coots, Bufflehead, and possibly Pied-billed grebe).

- Comments: "Spizellas with pale lores, strongly contrasting facial markings, and unstreaked gray nape that contrasted with buffy breast. On my way up the canyon, I had one at the beach and then two at the upper campground in the same view. When I got back to the beach, I had two in the same view. To rule out I had not double counted, I walked back up to the upper campground and had one bird. Unless the fourth bird moved between the beach and upper campground, which I highly doubt, there were a total of four clay-colored sparrows.

One bird near the beach was markedly more contrasting than the other, but had a grayer breast. The other bird near the beach had more buffy tones and was extremely confiding; it would actually land within 5 feet of me to forage, offering great views and opportunities to study it."

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49355631
- Comments: "Feeding with two clay colored sparrows and several chipping sparrows in the upper campground. Dark lores and less contrasting markings than clay colored. There may have been a second Brewer’s sparrow but there were so many spizellas in different plumages that I couldn’t be 100% positive."

Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] Scorpion at Santa Cruz Island
There are a number of species that seem much more frequent on Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara Islands compared to the mainland: Vesper, Brewer's, Chipping, and Clay-colored Sparrows, Green-tailed Towhee, and Sage Thrasher.


I have had single day counts of 4 and 5 CCSPs on SBI, and there might have been more individuals present those days.

The big mystery to me is why Scorpion gets so few warblers. Like you did, I quite often get a Nashville, but overall numbers and variety is always low.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] Scorpion at Santa Cruz Island

Hi all,

After seeing Nick’s post last weekend and hearing about the continued, though less intense, Santa Ana’s all week, I spent today at Scorpion. Much of that time was spent sorting through sparrows. In total I had 10 species of sparrow: chipping, clay-colored, Brewer’s, fox, juncos, white-crowned, song, Lincoln’s, rufous-crowned, and spotted towhee. Some of the mixed sparrow flocks had 6-7 species, and of course within each species there were varying plumages, plus they kept getting flushed by hikers, so it took some effort but it paid off. I finally found all three expected fall/winter spizellas in the same flock and in the same view at the same time (chipping, clay-colored, and Brewer’s). I ended up with a total of four clay-colored sparrows, which seemed noteworthy, and obtained photos of three of those individuals. One clay-colored sparrow was particularly unafraid of me, and at one point I was looking down at my feet to watch it feed. There wasn’t anything else too exciting but a pair of warbling vireos, a pair of peregrine falcons, and a Nashville warbler kept things interesting.

Also, someone needs to put those foxes on a diet.

All,

I birded around Lompoc today. At Ocean Beach, I saw 3 WF Ibis, 3 Pectoral
Sandpipers and a Common Tern. The area by the road is now drying out and
has quite a few ducks and shorebirds. Might be worth checking for a
Sharp-tailed Sandpiper.

In some non-public ag areas, I found 150 Horned Larks, 600 Tricolored
Blackbirds, 2 Bobolinks, and 30 Scaly-breasted Munias.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Arnold/Casper Rd. parking


I can’t seem to get this through to Ventura Co. Birding, so I’ll try posting it here... 




There is no longer any parking available to birders around the Arnold Rd. and Casper Rd. sod fields, right? (This is on the Oxnard Plain, Ventura Co.) I drove around there and couldn’t find any parking I was confident was legal, and I don’t see any recent ebird checklists from there, which I’m guessing is because of the parking issues...?

Subject: [sbcobirding] Red-breasted Sapsucker
I got in a little birding on Thursday, October 18, at LLC. A Red-breasted
Sapsucker was in the tree with four trunks near Stow House.
Five photos here:

Also observed were Northern Shovelers, Ruddy Ducks, Pied-billed Grebes, a
Northern Flicker, and one American Kestrel. Yellow-rumped Warblers are
everywhere.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Carp Creek, and city hall tams Palm Warblers
This morning from 9-10:30 a few birders were on Carp Creek and nothing rare was found as far as I know. There weren't a lot of birds except above 8th St.  On the creek there were a few Townsends, a Wilson's Warbler, a drab Yellow Warbler with unmarked face and the bulging eyes, a Pac Slope Flycatcher, 3 Bl. Phoebes, 40 YR Warblers, about 10 OC Warblers, a few Am. Goldfinches, a House Wren, a Cassins or Western Kingbird near the outflow, Some Ca. Towhees, Yellowthroats, sparrows, finches and munias were seem. A No. Flicker flew over.  btw Yellow Shafted Flickers and YB Sapsuckers were abundant in a couple parks I visited 2 weeks ago in NY/NJ. There were 6 YS Flickers in one bush in the Rambles of Central Park.

At the city hall tamarisk row in the small birdy sunflower field near the ocean 10:30-11 Noah Arthur found a Palm Warbler and a second one was seen at the same time. In the tams were a couple small flocks including a Wilson's, 3 Bl Throated Gray, 2 Townsends, a Warbling Vireo, and a Gnatcatcher Noah saw which seemed to have a mostly black undertail. A Pac Slope Flycatcher, a couple W. Bluebirds, a Say's Phoebe and a few YR Warblers and Lesser Goldfinches rounded out the tam row birds.

This afternoon there was a Vesper Sparrow at Elings Park in SB, approx. half way
between the Calle Montilla entrance and the stone bench. Also present was a
fairly tight flock of 12 White-throated Swifts buzzing a Red-tail.

Yesterday a Red-breasted Nuthatch called from the pines at Bella Vista Open

Subject: [sbcobirding] Summerland
Following up on Jason Siemen's sightings of yesterday, I found one PYGMY
NUTHATCH in the tall pine on the SE corner of Greenwell and Ortega Hill.
The trail around the valley was dead until, in the tall conifers to the
right of the trail, about 200 yds. down the west fork, I found (at least)
two MOUNTAIN CHICKADEES picking through the pine cones. I met a new birder
who pointed out a Red-shouldered Hawk's nest on the trail between Ortega
Hill Rd. and Ortega Ranch Lane. The nest was not active but she had seen
birds in and on it earlier in the year and recognized the RSHA's calls from
my Sibley's app.

At the Greenwell Preserve - also very slow - I had an overhead RED-TAILED
HAWK and a BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER.

I am at the flooded field on the east side of Black Road between Winset Farms and Black Road Auto. Nothing too unusual. One Greater White Fronted Goose, numerous Wilson’s Snipe, a White Tailed Kite and most interesting, no fewer than 20 Red Tailed Hawks within an acre or so of each other.

Other birds in the field were species expected in a field like this.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Redstart and ‘celata’ OCWA at Carpinteria Creek

Mid-day today I met up with Don Pendleton at Carpinteria Creek in search of the Blue-winged. Nobody saw it today and it seems gone. However, I was very impressed with the high density of birds in the creek area. Warblers everywhere. Our best finds were a female AMERICAN REDSTART and a very gray ‘CELATA’ ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, both in tall cottonwoods a little ways down the creek from the Carpinteria Avenue bridge (between this bridge and the Calle Ocho footbridge). A getting-late WILLOW FLYCATCHER was also in the area.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] No Nelson’s Sparrow at Jalama
Just to follow up, Wim van Dam and I stayed until shortly after 1 p.m. without refinding the Nelson's Sparrow.

My list (including photos of the Swamp Sparrow, and of one or more gray-headed Orange-crowned Warblers that I'm not qualified to assess as to subspecies) are here:

Hammond's Flycatcher (Empidonax hammondii) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Oct 14, 2018 07:30 by Curtis Marantz
- Carpinteria Creek, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.3930006,-119.5140259&ll=34.3930006,-119.5140259
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49258003
- Comments: "Others spotted this bird as it foraged actively in the upper branches of the large sycamores that were directly over the streambed a short distance above the bend. Although this bird was difficult to follow given its very active behavior, I eventually managed to get views that were sufficient to make a definitive identification. Although others noted that this bird flicked its wings, I never saw it do so, probably in part because it took me a little longer to get onto the bird with my scope, so I would have missed any wing-flicking that ti did when it perched. I never heard this bird give the distinctive "pip" calls of this species, but I did hear some generic Empidonax, "chase" calls that may or may not have been given by this bird when it interacted with a second Empidonax that was probably a Western Flycatcher.
This was a small flycatcher that looked much like the "Western" and Willow Flycatchers that we saw in the same general area. Given that my views were generally brief and involving a bird that was perched high overhead, I had a difficult time seeing the finer details of its structure. I nevertheless noted that this was a small bird, with an upright posture, a plump body, a large head, a conspicuously small bill, and long wings that appeared to extend some distance out a relatively short tail. My best views suggested that the bill was both short and relatively slim as it tapered from a base of medium-width to what appeared to be a blunt tip when seen from below. I further thought the bill would have extended backward on the face to a point somewhere near the eye. I also noted what appeared to be a large-headed appearance and a weak peak to the crown. Although it was difficult to discern the shape overall shape from below, I thought this bird had a short and somewhat stocky neck, a plump body with an upright posture, and noticeably long wings that had a primary projection that had to be almost as long as the entirely length of the exposed secondaries. I had a difficult time comparing the length of the tail relative to the body, but I did note that the tail appeared to be both short and parallel-sided. I have no recollection whatsoever of the legs or feet.
My views of the plumage patterns were even more superficial than those of the structure, but I was confident that this bird’s coloration and plumage patterns were typical of an Empidonax. This bird appeared to be conspicuously olive throughout the head and what I could see of the upperparts, but the color was unlike what I would have expected on either a Western or a Willow Flycatcher. I did note a think but well-defined and relatively conspicuous eyering that appeared to be more white than yellow, but I noted no other pattern on the face. The wings were sooty in color and apparently with the tips of the greater and median coverts appearing light gray and not white or yellow. The remiges were edged with either whitish or light gray to create a finely striped pattern to the rear part of the wing, but the wingtips were rather uniformly dark. In all, I thought this bird’s wing was duller than that of a Least or Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, but I cannot now recall if I noted a dark band below the lower wingbar. My views of the underparts were not great, but I thought they were both paler than the upperparts, but also not too different in color and seemingly a dingy, grayish-olive in color. I cannot now recall if the belly was paler or if there was a vested appearance.
I thought the bill was entirely dark when seen from below, but it is possible that I could have missed a limited amount of paler coloration at the base of the lower mandible. I also noted that the eyes were dark, but their precise color evaded me, and I as noted above, I have no recollection at all about the legs or feet."

Ash-throated Flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Oct 14, 2018 07:30 by Curtis Marantz
- Carpinteria Creek, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.3930006,-119.5140259&ll=34.3930006,-119.5140259
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49258003
- Media: 2 Photos
- Comments: "Near the end of my visit we saw in the understory along the creek a conspicuously ragged juvenile flycatcher that clearly represented a Myiarchus on the basis of the large size, slim body, long tail and bill, and rather blocky appearance to the head. I also noted that the head, neck, and underparts were dark brown, that the underparts were creamy whitish to light gray and quite mottled in appearance, and that the truly ragged tail had quite a bit of rufous. This bird never called, but I did manage to get several photos, including some while it perched atop my scope."

Swainson's Thrush (Catharus ustulatus) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Oct 14, 2018 07:30 by Curtis Marantz
- Carpinteria Creek, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.3930006,-119.5140259&ll=34.3930006,-119.5140259
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49258003
- Comments: "I believe Brittany heard at one point a call that she thought represented this species and shortly later I saw a bird perched in the mid-levels of the trees on the west bank of the creek a silent bird that I identified on the basis of the dark brown color of the head and upperparts, with the wings unmarked and not contrasting conspicuously with the tail, and well-defined spectacles that were buff in color, complete, and connected to the base of the bill through a supraloral stripe. I also noted at one point that the undertail coverts were tapered and white in color, but I never had a good view of this bird's underparts from the front, so I cannot now recall if I saw a spotted breast, Given the shaded conditions under which my observations were made, I would avoid identification of this bird to subspecies-group."

- Media: 9 Photos
- Comments: "We again saw this bird in trees along the creek above 8th Avenue at 8:05-8:17 am, and relatively consistently from 9:15 am to 11:55 am.
This was a relatively colorful and well-marked bird, yet for a Blue-winged Warbler its patterns seemed muted. The crown, nape, back, scapulars, and rump were a relatively bright, lime-green in color and seemingly unmarked; however, the lower edge of the green cap was demarcated by a relatively well-defined supercilium that connected narrowly across the forehead from which it extended back through the supraloral region, over the eyes, and then back about halfway across the upper edge of the auriculars. Contrasting more sharply with the supercilium than the green cap was the black eyeline that combined a line of medium width that extended through the lores from the base of the bill to the front part of the eye (where it was slightly broader than the eye where the two met), and then a narrower and relatively finely tapered wedge of black just behind the eye. The lower part of the face below the loral stripe and eye was a bright lemon-yellow, but the yellow extended backward only about halfway through the auriculars, the rear edge of which was the same shade of green as the back and sides of the neck. The throat, breast, belly, sides, and flanks were a bright, lemon-yellow from the chin down through the vent region, but the tapered undertail-coverts were a dull white from the vent to their terminus. I further noted a weak suffusion of olive to the sides of the breast and along the flanks, but in general, the underparts appeared to be yellow and unmarked. The underside of the tail showed white spots on the inner webs of the outer rectrices that were visible from just behind the undertail coverts, but the edge curved inward to reach the inner edge just short of the tips of the outer feathers. The white was framed by black on either side of the tail and the black expanded distally across the inner web to cover the tips of the outer feathers. Contrasting with the green back, the wings were more boldly marked and tending toward bluish in color. I noted bluish-gray at the shoulder, between the wingbars, and on the rear part of the wing. The median coverts were bluish-gray (and maybe a shade more blue than battleship-gray) basally before merging sharply6 with the white tips of these feathers to produce an upper wingbar that was both broader and shifted forward on the wing relative to the lower wingbar. The greater coverts had medium to dark gray centers that contrasted with both the relatively narrow white tips and edges that were about the same shade of blue-gray as the bases of the median coverts. Further apparent was a darker wedge along the leading edge of the wing that represented the primary coverts. The secondaries appeared to be medium to dark brownish internally, but with edges that were similar in color to those of the greater coverts that were narrow but well-defined on most of the feathers but broader and more poorly defined on the innermost secondaries, on which the contrast between the centers and edges was relatively subtle. Finally, the exposed primary tips appeared to be brownish and poorly marked, but I did see fringes that were sufficiently conspicuous for me to distinguish the various feathers in the wingtip. The upperside of the tail was dark gray with subtly paler edges that were probably light gray. The spread tail showed a moderate amount of white on the outer feathers.
Whereas the bill typically appeared to be black, views directly from below suggested a narrow edge of a paler and seemingly flesh color on the inner part of the lower mandible that was not visible from the side. I once thought the eyes were dark brown when seen in good light and at relatively close range through my scope. The legs generally appeared to be dark, but I noted at least some flesh tones to the undersides of the legs. I thought both the toes and claws were generally dark."

I thought I should tell (I've been busy and I'll never get through
the thousands of images I took etc etc) my experience on Monday. In
late morning the bird was very frenetic in trees just south of the
white 'shack', and it rarely was out of sight since its constant
movement revealed its location regularly. [never came low enough for
good photos even from up on the bank]. When I returned about 3pm some
birders showed it to me on the east bank as before, but north of the
shack. I saw it less frequently up until I left at 4pm; but I can
give one specific location. There is a low wooden deck visible from
the creek, overgrown with an orange-flowered vine, and looking beyond
it there is a not-so-large sprawling cottonwood tree which perhaps
overhangs the deck a bit; the bird was feeding there at times. Not
the closest view but any movement in the leaves is easily seen.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Jalama Beach: Nelson's Sparrow, 'celata' OCWA
I fulfilled a years-long dream by exploring Jalama Beach Park out on the end of Pt. Conception this afternoon. I've always thought Jalama looked like a really interesting (Pt. Reyes-like) potential vagrant trap habitat, and it lived up to all my hopes today. Most of the migrant action was in a meadow of rabbitbrush along the creek just east of where the creek dead-ends into the beach sand. The best bird was a glowing orange-gold NELSON'S SPARROW that made several appearances around the east end of the meadow, mostly along the shrubby border between the meadow and the willow thicket. Warblers foraging at knee-height in the blooming/seeding rabbitbrush included a few COMMON YELLOWTHROATS, at least two YELLOW WARBLERS, two WILSON'S WARBLERS, an 'ORESTERA' ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, and a spectacularly drab 'CELATA' ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER. (This is the eastern subspecies and a nice vagrant on the West Coast.) 
It was interesting to see the 'celata' and other warblers foraging low in fading flowers and seedheads of the rabbitbrush, as this habitat and behavior closely mimics what I've seen many 'celata' doing in late fall in Nebraska. There, mixed gangs of 'celata' and Nashville Warblers forage at knee-height in mistflower and goldenrod, both of which resemble rabbitbrush in height and flower type. Half a continent away from the eastern mistflower thickets where it "should" be, this 'celata' has found an almost identical foraging niche (and a misfit gang of late-migrant western warblers to share it with).

Subject: [sbcobirding] today at Carp Creek
Hi All:
Today Larry Ballard and I birded Carp Creek for over 2 hours without finding the Blue-winged Warbler. However, we ran into John and Ann Doty, who said they’d seen a good candidate for the bird, and they had some photos. I am hoping they will submit those with their eBird checklist. They were standing about 10 yds. north towards the Carp Ave. bridge from the run-down wooden shed, when they had the bird. That is as far north as its been, I believe.
Also, we had a problematic flycatcher that Larry and I at first thought was a Hammond’s, but after consideration I am putting it down as an Empid sp. on my eBird list. The bill was completely orange and wide-based, just seemed too long for a Hammond’s. And also the primary projection didn’t seem long enough on this bird, which appeared long-tailed to me. These were instant views of a bird straight overhead, & I am not comfortable with identifying it. I do know that a Hammond’s was seen a couple of days ago on the creek, but this may or may not be it. I apologize to the Dotys, because at the time I told them what I thought it was, and it mayn’t be. If they put it on their eBird list, it may be in error.
Larry and I found the creek to be somewhat less birdy than over the weekend, but of course just because the Blue-winged Warbler has gotten harder doesn’t mean it’s gone. Jon Dunn reminded me of one of this species that had wintered in Humboldt County! So, we should keep a watch out & perhaps this bird will stick around!

Good birding!
Joan Lentz

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Carp Creek - No Blue-winged this morning and Swarovski scope for sale
FYI - there is a Pacific Wren in Carpinteria Creek in the vicinity of the
(now) AWOL Blue-winged Warbler. It certainly appears "tailless" but it was
calling on Monday so this should be apparent that the Pacific is different
and not a House Wren.

Hi All: I was able to make contact with Jim Moore, who’s fiancée owns a condo on Carp Crk, and he reports that he searched the creekbed much of the morning without any luck, but sometime in mid-afternoon, he and Debbie, his fiancée, saw the bird fly in with a flock of Bushtits. It was near the parking lot of their condo complex, the one with the dark wood finish to it. Her condo looks out over the creek.
Jim won’t be there most of the day tomorrow, & I think we should be careful about trespassing, but IF the Blue-winged is still around, it may have changed its habits & be wandering a bit away from the creek.
Good luck, stay safe, and perhaps the Blue-winged will stay another day to give us all a thrill. Who knows?
Joan Lentz

Forwarding this message about the continuing Blue-winged Warbler seen this
afternoon in Carpinteria. This message was sent to the old Yahoo Group
address in error but I wanted to forward it here for those who are thinking
of chasing the bird tomorrow.

Subject: Blue-winged Warbler seen today
At 3:45, foraging with a flock of Bushtits in a tree near the creek in the
rear parking lot of the Creekwinds condos, upstream of the 8th Street
bridge. It was in the tree for a few seconds, then flew off with the
Bushtits further downstream.

Soft yellow face and lower body, with mascara at the rear of its eyes, and
wingbars.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] San Miguelito Road and Jalama today
One more update: After getting input from Dave Compton and going back and re-examining photos I’ve updated the three lists that had single Golden Eagles to reflect the opinion that actually, those aren’t three separate listings of the same individual eagle, but are instead three different eagles:

* a relatively mature bird in the Sudden Road x San Miguelito Road list - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49203008

* a relatively young bird with a visible molt going on in its left outer primaries in the San Miguelito Road-end list - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49203054

* a different young bird with no visible molting in the left outer primaries in the Jalama Road list - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49203068

As always, thank you to everyone who looked at the lists and offered feedback. It boggles my mind how generous people on this list are with their time and expertise.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Plea for continued updates on Blue-winged Warbler
Hi All:
Please, if you happen to have positive or negative information about the presence of the Blue-winged Warbler at Carpinteria Creek, would you mind continuing to post? I have an out-of-towner friend, Jon Dunn, who would chase it on Wed., if the bird is still being seen.
Thanks to all up to now who’ve kindly shared their Blue-winged sightings. With a bird of this rarity, there may be others who are waiting to hear about it one way or the other in order to visit from out of our local area.
Great bird seen by many happy folks, but it is fall migration….and it will soon be gone…
Thanks heaps,

Joan Lentz

Subject: [sbcobirding] North County birds Sunday, 14 Oct
The best shore birding around may be at this flooded field on Black Road less than a mile north of Betteravia Road in Santa Maria. Not much was there on 24 September, but Peter Gaede and Wes Fritz found it active on 12 October. Conor Scotland and I birded there yesterday. 2 Cattle Egrets, a calling Black-bellied Plover, and 16 Red-tailed Hawks were most interesting. 2 Dunlin, 3 Pectoral, and 5 Least Sandpipers were present. Also, 17 Wilson Snipe, 25 Long-billed Dowitchers, and 7 Greater Yellowlegs.
Jack O’Connell Park had 2 Pacific Golden-Plovers.
The Santa Ynez River Estuary had a Ruddy Turnstone and a Chipping Sparrow. Checklists on eBird.

At one point I was surrounded by the spizella flock and had all three species within 5 yards. I think Scorpion is probably worth an effort for Field Sparrow over the next years. It seems pretty good for spizellas.

I felt short-changed by the lack of a White-winged Dove … which I thought was a standard part of the Scorpion ‘scarcity suite’!

- Comments: "Bird was seen with 12 others, in Carp Creek, 100 yards downstream of Carp Ave bridge, and 200 yeards upstream of 8th St. bridge. Feeding actively in Sycamores, dead trees and bushes, staying about 20-30 feet above our heads. Very acrobatic feeding on insects and caterpillars. Bird is reputed to be first year female, according to CM. Yellow band on forehead narrow and does not extend up to top of head which is uniformly olive onto back. Dark eyeline across yellow face. Yellow chin blending in to all yellow breast, flanks, and belly, fading to white with slightly dusky vent. Outer tail feathers black with teardrop shape. Wings were grayish/"olive" with faint and short white wing bars. 2ndary and tertiaries were grayish, not blue. Moving somewhat slower than other warblers, allowing good views, especially when it was in an acrobatic position, twisted around a sycamore leaf. 2/3rds the size of nearby Yellow Rumped Warblers. Heard by others giving flight note, but I could not hear it.

The bird left about noon, when things got quiet. I walked down the creek checking out birds in small shady puddles. One was especially attractive to warblers. Lo and behold! The BWWA came down to the puddle, 4 feet in front of me, bathed, drank, and fluffed the excess water off. I got poor photos with my iPhone which are attached here."

Favored clumps of dead leaves in cottonwood and other trees on both sides of the creek. Stayed mostly in lower half of trees. No obvious vocalization.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Ocean Park - Lawrence's Goldfinch
I visited Ocean Park this morning, best birds were a flock of 25 Lawrence's Goldfinch that came in near the playground and gave great looks for five minutes or so before departing. 

On the way home I had a flock of 39 Greater White-fronted Geese circling around vineyard just E of La Purisima Golf course. They circled around as if exploring the ponds there but they never set down that I saw.

Subject: [sbcobirding] San Miguelito Road and Jalama today
I figured I'd give Dave Compton's Pinyon Jay flock a chance to reappear, so I birded along San Miguelito Road this morning, then drove the road to Jalama, stopping at turnouts. No Pinyon Jays, but lots of interesting raptors:

* I had great views of a light-phase adult Ferruginous Hawk that hunted in the grassy valley north of the San Miguelito Road/Sudden Road intersection from early morning until I left the area around 2:30 p.m.
* Likewise, great views of an adult Prairie Falcon in the same location.
* At least one Golden Eagle that I saw from San Miguelito Road and Sudden Road, then from the dead end of San Miguelito Road at the Vandenberg gate, and later from Jalama Road. I'm assuming they were all the same bird; the photos show slight differences, but I think that might be accounted for by lighting, viewing angle, and distance.

Besides those there also were Red-tails, Kestrels, Sharp-shinned, Coopers, Northern Harriers (both sexes), and Turkey Vultures. All that open country and windy ridges with so few people seems to be very much to the liking of the birds of prey. It would be sad if the proposed wind farm changes that.

I have a few mysteries I'm looking for help with. At San Miguelito Road and Sudden Road I saw several groups of skinny waterfowl fly over; at the time I thought they were mergansers, but looking at the photos and checking occurrence dates I think Common Loon would make more sense. Also, I observed two sparrows, one of which I photographed, that I think may have been Vesper Sparrows. But those streaky sparrows are challenging for me, and I'd appreciate any feedback people have to offer.

The skinny waterfowl and ambiguous sparrows are in this list:

The rest of my day is recorded in the following lists:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49203054- end of San Miguelito Road

Subject: [sbcobirding] Scorpion
All,

I went out to Scorpion today. The original intent was to camp overnight and
see what the Santa Anas brought in. However Island Packers has already
cancelled the Monday boat and I lacked supplies and vacation time to stay
until Tuesday or Wednesday. So I did a day trip and hiked the whole
Scorpion Canyon loop trail plus a bit up the Montanon Ridge trail to check
a couple of small canyons with oaks for migrants. There were no definite
migrants high up but lots of Thick-billed Fox Sparrows, kinglets, and
Hermit Thrushes that presumably winter there, as well as scads of Island
Scrub Jays and a jeeting Canyon Wren.

Down in the valley, there was a decent but highly predictable selection of
interesting migrants including a Sage Thrasher, a Palm Warbler, 2 each of
Brewer's, Clay-colored, and Vesper Sparrows, along with 23 Chipping
Sparrows, a Lazuli Bunting, and 2 Lawrence's Goldfinches. The obvious
highlight was a Gray-headed Junco, which is rarely seen in SBA.

Nick

Back and part of head were olive. Top of head yellow with a brighter yellow supercillium. Frequent tail flicking. Favored clumps of dead leaves in cottonwood and other trees on both sides of the creek. Stayed mostly in lower half of trees. No obvious vocalization.

Stopped to examine a flock of Bushtits that the bird had been reported to associate with. At this point, other birders were watching the Blue-winged and we followed their gestures to find it foraging in a Sycamore on the west side of the creek. For the next hour we watched it move up and down this general vicinity, about halfway between Carpinteria Avenue and the foot bridge, actively foraging in many types of vegetation and at all levels. It did seem to return often to Sycamore. Greenish-yellow back and top of head, grayish wings, very bright yellow below with dull white undertail coverts. Broad white patches on the sides of the tail (possibly all white outer tail feathers, hard to tell). Head was bright yellow, with a strong black line from the base of the bill through the eye. A very active bird, foraging at times with a mixed flock (Townsend's Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Warbling Vireo, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, plus the Bushtits). It often probed leaf clumps upside down. Often silent, then it would call frequently, a short, sharp, loud "cheet" or "cheek.""

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49171886
- Comments: "I was standing with the group of birders, and we had decided to get the light behind us by looking west (the Carp Ave. bridge was 100 yards behind us to the north), when Larry Ballard yelled "I've got it!" The bird was first in a Coast Live Oak, then spent much time gleaning the leaves of a tall, thick-trunked Black Cottonwood that grew near an old wooden shack on the east side of the creek. I got good looks at the bird, but no photo. I saw a warbler that was bright yellow, almost orangey- toned underneath (reminding of the color of a Prothonotary Warbler). The head and underparts were all seemingly of this vibrant yellow. There was a pronounced black line through the eye of the bird, extending well back from the eye. The wings contrasted pale grayish, with two rather faint but discernible white wing bars. The tail appeared rather long, and was completely white underneath. Once in awhile it would flash the tail, spreading it a bit, which was spectacular to watch. What a glorious bird that a lot of folks got to see! And I am hoping others got great photos!"

- Comments: "After Nick Lethaby, who found this bird, got the word out, I met him, Larry Ballard, Joan Lentz, Marilyn Harding, John Baily, and Bill Murdoch at Carpinteria Creek, upstream of 8th Street. After searching for 30-40 minutes, we found the bird on the east side of the creek. After a fairly quick and distant look, we lost it for five or ten minutes, then refound it just downstream. After this, the bird was pretty regularly in view, never out of view for more than about five minutes and seen more and more regularly as it moved downstream and more birders showed up. I saw the bird off and on for maybe an hour and a half, getting looks at all angles and in many lighting situations.
DESCRIPTION. This was a pretty bright bird, probably a young male. It was bright yellow below from the chin through the vent, and I think even onto the under tail coverts. The lower part of the under tail coverts were white. The face was yellow with a blackish line from the bill through the eye, which was also dark. There was more yellowish above the eye line and on the auriculars, but the crown and nape were a not-well-delineated olive; that is, the yellow of the face blended into the olive of the crown and nape. The mantle was greenish. I’m not sure what color the rump was. The wings were a medium gray with white wing bars that were pretty prominent but not sharply defined. There was a darker gray area at the bend of the wing. My impression is that the wings did not show a hint of blue.
I saw the tail mostly from below. The bird pumped and fanned it’s tail more often than I recall seeing in this species. The tail was short for a warbler’s and looked just about entirely white from below. I don’t know how many of the rectrices were white, but the outermost certainly were, and I believe more were as well [NOTE: photos show dark gray on the outside of the outer three rectrices, which otherwise appeared white]. The central tail feathers were certainly darker, and you could see the base of dark feathers in the folded tail below, as well as a dark central line in the tail when the bird fanned it.
I did not note the leg or bill color. The bill was certainly not that pale, although photos appear to show a fleshy color from below. The bill was short and pointed.
BEHAVIOR. The bird was reasonably active—about average, or a little less active than average, for a warbler—but would sometimes sit in one location for 10, 20 seconds or more, looking around. It fed at various levels. In my experience, which is seeing this species on the breeding grounds, it stays in the understory or midstory. But this bird sometimes went pretty high up and never seemed to be within 4 or 5 feet of the ground.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS. Pointed rectrices visible in photos suggest a juvenile. I assume the relative brightness of the bird suggests a male."

I was very happy to get a few views of this county first (I'm told by Wes
Fritz) near the 8th st. bridge over Carpinteria creek - which has no water
in it. All the other birders were in the creek bed but I didn't find it
safe to scramble down there so I took a peek from the creek bank. You'll
find a few very heavily cropped photos at:

To get a good view I had to walk down on sand (east end of parking lot) and out as far on sandspit without stepping into water myself. I watched the bird catch and eat a small crab. It is now a deep blue with no hint of white in feathers. Some purplish on neck. Bill is two-toned and very long legs are yellow. I last saw it on Aug. 13 and have observed it at regular intervals since first sighted as a very white juvenile bird."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Waller Park Band-tailed Pigeons
A first for me as I have never seen Band-tailed pigeons anywhere in Santa
Maria Valley in all my years of birding (no habitat), I spotted four birds
flying above the northern edge of Waller Park this morning. These birds
only made a pass overhead and did not stay or drop into the trees. There is
little oak habitat around the area to sustain Band-tailed Pigeons so this
was certainly an anomaly. Lehman mentions one SM record in June 2006 but I
have no idea where that was recorded. Other birds of note were
Black-throated Gray, Yellow, Hermit, and Nashville Warblers (singles of
each), a couple of Pacific-slope Flycatchers and a few Western Tanagers
were the only migrants detected.

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park and Reserve, Saturday, October 13, 2018

Took a casual walk through this morning, without binoculars. The
WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS are back in force. There was a single juvenile
YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT HERON out by the white bridge (restricted area).
Nothing else interesting.

The dredging of Santa Monica Creek has left a 10' high mud wall along the
west bank. The mud dam in Franklin Creek has been removed.

After reading Steve's email yesterday I decided to go out in the late
afternoon. Little Blue was at first barely visible from east end of
parking lot (about 4:30) so I walked down onto the beach and as far as
possible toward rocks at far side of slough. By 5 PM the little Blue had
disappeared among the inlets in the cliff.

I've included some photos in the checklist at:

Subject: [sbcobirding] Elings, El Sitio
Reasonable numbers of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the fennel at Elings Park this
evening which seemed to be finding plenty to eat--gives me hope that something
of note will drop in before fall ends.

Earlier I went to pick up food at El Sitio restaurant (De La Vina shopping
center--Grocery Outlet, Presto Pasta, etc). As I was leaving a heard a warbler
chip or two in the tipu tree outside El Sitio. I gave a pish and lo and behold,
the tree was full of warblers: 3 Black-throated Grays, 2 Townsend's, a
Nashville, an Orange-crowned, a Wilson's, a Yellow, and several Yellow-rumped.
So, for the next couple of weeks at least, whenever you pass a tipu, have a
good pish. You never know the reaction you'll get.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Maria area birding
Hi All:

Wes Fritz and I checked a few areas in the Santa Maria Valley today specifically looking for fields with suitable habitat for shorebirds and pipits. We found a nice flooded field on the east side of Black Road just south of Stowell. We’re guessing this area might continue to be good for a couple of weeks if irrigation continues. In this field we had a nice group of foraging dowitchers, snipe and yellowlegs, with a few Dunlin and seven Pectoral Sandpipers in the mix. Also 13 Greater White-fronted Geese. This will probably be a good spot to continue checking for something interesting to show up.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Lompoc Area - Black Skimmers, Greater White-fronted Geese
I visited Ocean Park west of Lompoc today. Best birds were two Black Skimmers sitting on the beach with a bunch of gulls. Also present with the flock a Brant, two Herring Gulls, Ring-billed Gull with good numbers of Western and California gulls as well as Royal Terns. A flock of 9 Greater White-fronted Geese flew in over the ocean from the south and then turned inland N of the river mouth.

On the way home stops at La Purisima Mission and Santa Rosa Park found nothing of note. A mile or so west of Santa Rosa Park (34.6098,  -120.3198) I had three Yellow-billed Magpies. This is an unusual location this far west.

So if we have the following dates:
Jan 2017 Turner
25 Feb 2017 Holmgren
March 2017 Gaulin
11 Oct 2018 Schneekloth
Are there other observation dates and photos of this bird?
If, in fact, its NOT seen during our definite breeding window, then we
might have evidence of a Red-tailed Hawk choosing to over winter in our
area. If true, there is little prior evidence that our area serves in that
way--to support RtHas choosing to winter here. Of course, we have plenty
of Red-tails that pass through our area in migration. We'd know more about
issues like this if we had more local bird banders.

A flock of 25 Greater White-fronted Goose just flew over the Museum of

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Barbara Cyn area and New Cuyama
A 2-day trip to the mountains off of Santa Barbara Cyn and in New Cuyama
yielded some interesting birds. The main motivation was to see if Pinyon
Jays have found the Pinon Pine habitat in SB County. I saw no PiJas and
very few pines had any cones.



On 10 October on Cuyama Peak at dusk I heard and recorded the calls of
Swainson’s Thrush in the chaparral. They were probably preparing for
migration that night. Pics of the habitat and recording are here:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49116327



This morning (11 Oct) Tinta Trailhead was very birdy. Here were 3 *Cassin’s
Finches*. See: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49131713



Other birding stops in Dry Canyon were not productive.



Richardson Park in New Cuyama had a western *Palm Warbler*, and a bunch of
sparrows. See: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49127290



At the New Cuyama Wastewater Treatment Plant were 12 Least Sandpipers,
1 *Dunlin
*(quite unusual in the Cuyama Valley), and *Black-necked Stilt*, also
unusual. I was surprised to find a *Green-winged Teal *there, also very
unusual in the Valley. The Baird’s Sandpiper has apparently departed. For
details and photos, see:

My list from the evening off of Sternn's Wharf :
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49131485

Shows the perfectly healthy aechmorphous grebes (western and Clark's) as
well as Brown Pelicans. These are the first of these species I'm seeing
this year. I hope I don't have errors in these lists.

This hawk (probably) was reported to me by a local resident in Sept 2015 in a private field south south west of El Camino school. I put a few photos of in an album of it on my Flickr page then. Jeff and I also observed the bird subsequently in the now developed open area north of the University Circle open space in Dec ‘15, Feb ‘16 and
maybe even later.
Nice to see it is still around.

Subject: [sbcobirding] East Beach - deceased birds
Hi all,

Sorry for the slightly morbid post. This morning, I was on a run with my
dog, noting shorebirds along the way. Near Mission Creek outflow, I noticed
a sick looking surf scoter on the wet part of the sand. It struggled to get
into the water, getting tossed around by the small shore break. I
considered trying to capture it at that time, but I determined that trying
to walk it home with my dog would have been too much stress for the ill
bird. I went back to look for the scoter at lunch, with the intention of
trying to capture it and take it to a rescue center. While searching for
the bird, I noticed a fairly-recently deceased Aechmophorus grebe on the
dry sand near the outflow; it seems like it got washed up with the wrack.
Then, I saw the scoter from this morning floating on the water lifeless.
The scoter is now in the Museum of Natural History's research
collection--thanks Krista!

Not sure if two recently dead birds at the same location is just a
coincidence, or a symptom of some condition offshore, so I thought I'd
mention it to the group.

Pinyon Jay (Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus) (18)
- Reported Oct 09, 2018 10:55 by David Compton
- 4705 San Miguelito Rd, Lompoc US-CA (34.5796,-120.5106), Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.579608,-120.510646&ll=34.579608,-120.510646
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49089308
- Comments: "While standing above upper Miguelito Canyon to the south, I heard a couple of nasal calls coming from across the canyon, about 0.25 miles away. I then saw a flock of birds come over the ridge and make their way west below the ridge top, over the divide between Miguelito Creek and Honda Creek, and then farther west, in the direction of Vandenberg Air Force Base. The birds were very distant and initially were backlit against a gray sky. But they soon dropped down enough that I could see them against the ridge. Even though I did not expect Pinyon Jay in the least given the time and place, I quickly suspected I was looking at this species. When the birds dropped down in front of the ridge, I could make out blue dorsal sides to the birds, or at least some of them. I couldn't make out anything else in terms of plumage. The birds were largish, but size was difficult to discern at this distance. I briefly entertained the notion that the birds could be Band-tailed Pigeons, just because I thought I needed to consider something less likely. But these birds were blue and they flew nothing like Band-taileds, a flock of which I had seen a few minutes earlier. These birds flew fairly directly, but much slower than pigeons, and looked pretty buoyant in flight. It's hard to say that I thought they looked like jays, since they didn't fly like a scrub-jay or a Steller's Jay. I suppose the flight resembled that of Clark's Nutcracker the most among other corvids occurring in California. Or maybe it was a bit like American Crow, but slower. They flew in a fairly disorganized group, with some undulation noted in their flight. But this was not pronounced. It was a bit like watching a small blackbird flock in slow motion.
I initially noted that I thought the flight call, which I heard maybe 10 or 12 times as I followed the flock, sounded nasal and plaintiff, and rising in pitch. This description does not really match anything I've listened to since. But the call was definitely nasal, and it was loud enough to be heard from a quarter mile away. I would also say it seemed like a fairly deep nasal call. It was not that high pitched. I am sure there was a change in pitch in the call. But I suspect I erred in noting the pitch was rising. The quality of the call was like that of other Pinyon Jay calls that I've listened to since seeing these birds, whether or not the pitch was rising.
In short, despite the distance of this observation, I'm confident of the ID, given the larger size of the birds, the blue dorsal color, and the vocalization."

Clay-colored Sparrow (Spizella pallida) (4)
- Reported Oct 09, 2018 17:30 by Aaron Kreisberg
- Santa Cruz Island--Scorpion Harbor, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.0489615,-119.5560551&ll=34.0489615,-119.5560551

Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus) (1)
- Reported Oct 09, 2018 14:33 by Libby Patten
- Elings Park, Santa Barbara, California

- Comments: "Found yesterday by Hugh Ranson. Found by others later. Seen on a trail heading due east from the stone bench. Pointed out to me by eagle-eye Julie Scotland. Foraging on seeds in the trail. Observed for at least 15 minutes while it slowly meandering east, continuing to feed, staying largely on the ground. Striking in its overall golden/buffy background highlighted by dark streaks. Pink conical bill. Dark eye line and dark stripes on head. Neck and nape just a solid buff/gold. Appeared to be slightly smaller than a CA Towhee. It's interesting how different this bird looks in different postures and certain aspects of the plumage of the bird I photographed look quite different from the photos taken by Hugh or Cuyler Stapelmann. But it must be the same bird, right? I know sometimes multiple Bobolink have been seen together at one spot during migration (such as the Patterson Ag Fields), so it will be interesting to see if there could be more than one at this location."

It was immediately noticeable with it's striking yellow/gold color (which I don't think has come through the photos posted by others thus far unless this is a second Bobolink). Seen with Libby Patton and one other gentleman."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Carpinteria Creek
lower Carpinteria Creek and Lagoon, Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018

Although much of Carpinteria Creek is a long, thin meadow, there is still
enough water to attract numerous and interesting species. Most notably, an
Ovenbird and a Northern Waterthrush have visited there in the past month.
Bank erosion and subsequent loss of trees and bushes has provided for
improved views of the Creek and bordering vegetation.

This morning I found 28 species. WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS AND YELLOW-RUMPED
WARBLERS are out in force.

Best Bird: MacGILLIVARY'S WARBLER . . . 6th Street

Coolest sighting: HUTTON'S VIREO and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET in the same view
just north of 6th.

First for me on Carp Creek: AMERICAN KESTRAL . . . atop a tall bare tree
on the east bank at the northern edge of Sewage Treatment Plant.

Full list is at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/email?subID=S49098567

Subject: [sbcobirding] June 2003 pelagic records?
Hi,
I have hand written records of a pelagic trip on June 7, 2003 that must
have left from the Ventura Harbor, because before or after the trip I noted
birds in the Ventura Harbor. I want to make sure I enter the sea birds in
the correct county (into eBird), so if anybody else has records of this
trip please contact me. I do not see this trip on eBird.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Pinyon Jays reported at Miguelito Road near Sudden Road
Thanks, John.

A little more on this. First off, sincere apologies for getting the
location slightly wrong--the birds crossed San Miguelito Road NORTH of
Sudden Road, not south. But the general direction they went is
correct--they flew west into the Honda Creek watershed, in the direction of
Vandenberg. Also, I think my description of the call as rising and
plaintiff was probably wrong, as people who know Pinyon Jay calls better
than I do will probably tell you. But the call I heard, given in
flight, was a single note, or a sort of bent note that changed in pitch and
was quite nasal. It was the call that first alerted me to the birds, which
were about a quarter mile away when I first spotted them. These birds are
extraordinarily far off course. We do have several records (30+ years
old) from Goleta, but today's birds were another 40 or 50 miles farther
west.

I am leaving town at the crack of dawn tomorrow, so my opportunities to chase this county bird are almost gone, but if anyone has a good sighting today, please let the rest of us know as soon as possible.

 

Thank you,

Subject: [sbcobirding] Pinyon Jays
Dear Folks,
Apparently there is an irruption of Pinyon Jays in the county.  I knew something was odd when Wim posted a question re: records in BOSB not being in eBird.  And then there was that amazing post from Dave Compton about Pinyon Jays in the Lompoc area.  But until Joan Lentz kindly mentioned it in a private post to me this afternoon, I had no idea what was up.  (Thank you Dave and Joan, by the way.)
So folks, this plaintive plea has been made before:  Group Me is all very well for those that use it, but would you please post info like this to SBCOBirding for those of us who don't?
I am leaving town at the crack of dawn tomorrow, so my opportunities to chase this county bird are almost gone, but if anyone has a good sighting today, please let the rest of us know as soon as possible.
Thank you,
Florence Sanchez

Subject: [sbcobirding] Pinyon Jays reported at Miguelito Road near Sudden Road
Dave Compton requested the following be posted to the list:

"I believe I just had 18 pinyon jays flying west over Miguelito Rd south of the intersection with Sudden. They went over the hill, continuing west, into the Honda side, toward Vandenberg. Larger blue birds giving very nasal, rising, plaintive call... The sighting was a bit distant but I think unmistakable."

Subject: [sbcobirding] missing Pinyon Jay records on eBird
For obvious reasons I was checking the eBird records of Pinyon Jay in our
county and I noticed that all the more recent records that Lehman mentions
are missing from eBird. Specifically these are the ones that Lehman has,
but that do not show up on eBird:

- ca. 20 near Santa Ynez (District I) 6 September 1996
- 30–40 Dry Canyon (Sierra Madre south of Cuyama Valley) 4–9 October 2000
- 8 Tinta Creek (Sierra Madre south of Cuyama Valley) 8 October 2000
- 8–9 Cuyama Peak (Sierra Madre south of Cuyama Valley) 15 October 2000

If you are an eBirder who was lucky enough to see these Pinyon Jays, please
consider entering them retroactively. You can use the "Historical"
observation type if you don't remember the details anymore. I think that
would really improve how the map of observations looks like.

Thanks
Wim

All,

I checked a few spots very briefly this AM before work. At Bella Vista, there were two Red-breasted Nuthatches and a Hermit Thrush. Still plenty of warblers at Evergreen including a Nashville and BT Gray. A big fennel patch on Calle Real held a flock that included 6 OC Warblers, one of which was in the orestera/celata/celata x lutescens camp, most likely the last of these options.

Subject: [sbcobirding] hawkwatch finished for the season?
Hi All:
Today I and Marilyn were the only hawkwatchers, which is fortunate because there wasn’t much going on.
From 3-4:45 pm we were at the Bella Vista Dr. overlook spot, and the most remarable sighting was a flock of 16 Common Ravens coming over the ridge, then heading swiftly east. I’m told that ravens don’t migrate, but I’ve never seen that many in a kettle on this side of the S.Y. Mtns. And yes, I know they’re getting more easily seen here in S.B. County, but I felt this many was an unusual sighting.
Add three Red-tailed Hawks, a Sharpie, and a Cooper’s Hawk and you have the day’s totals.
Good birding!
Joan Lentz

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bobolink and 4 Palm Warblers
Late this evening I went to Elings Park in search of Connor Scotland's Palm
Warbler. I soon found it in fennel. It flew to another fennel patch where it
joined two others. A fourth flew in and joined the three. They dropped to the
ground and were feeding in the incredibly spiky low-growing shrubs between the
stone bench and the paragliding spot. I then came across a Bobolink--first for
the park, I believe--in fennel a little east of the stone bench. Photos of both
here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/159344319@N03/

There are also some new photos, a few from Saturday's pelagic (including a booby
or two, or five), and a couple of the putative Alder Flycatcher at Lake Los
Carneros.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Least Bittern at LLC this morning
During birding class this morning, Dennis Ringer spotted a Least Bittern in the reeds at the southwest corner of the lake. We had nice scope views, and it was a life bird for many. We viewed it while standing about 50m east of the western edge of the dam. It was tucked into the reeds on the north side of the little cove created by the curve of the lake at the southwest corner.

In other news, a few waterfowl have arrived, with a handful each of Northern Shoveler and American Wigeon, and three Redhead. (The lake is being aerated with some kind of noisy mechanical pump, fyi. Apparently this helps deter the growth of the algae.) Other migrants present were Lincoln’s, Golden-crowned, and White-crowned sparrows, and trees full of Yellow-rumped Warblers and Western Tanagers in the parking lot.

I hope they were quiet, called in hush tones and were respectful of the
somber tone of the location.

There was a mass of YR warblers in the huge magnolia tree near Hahn Hall
and in the tipu trees lower down, at the Music Academy this morning. I
have never seen so many here - especially in the magnolia. I didn't find
anything unusual - Townsend's, OC, a BT Gray, RC Kinglet. But it is very
noisy there, including some tree work.

Alder Flycatcher (Empidonax alnorum) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Sep 30, 2018 11:55 by Thomas Wurster
- Lake Los Carneros Park, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.44322,-119.84975&ll=34.44322,-119.84975
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48925631
- Comments: "Kristi Nelson alerted our group about a possible Alder Flycatcher at about 1PM. Description: Empid with a thin, circular white eye ring, bold contrasty wing panel with near black coverts tipped broadly with near white (tinged w/ buff) and tertial edges - this combination rules out Western Willow Flycatcher. Continuously white below from chin to vent except for diffuse gray-olive smudging on upper sides. Back, when viewed in bright shade was notably green-olive, greener than than brown-olive back color I associate with Western WIFL. On a later viewing when I observed it from the rear with its head turned to the side, the head appeared a paler grayish-olive, contrasting with its darker back. Its bill was noticably shorter than the long bill of Western WIFL (compared to the 1-2 Western WIFLs that I obseerved in the immediate area, and the 1000's of other Western WIFLs that I have observed), but had the same basic bill shape. The bill was blackish-brown above and on the sides, and yellowish on the underside. I was never able to view bill shape from below. Body plan essentially identical to WIFL - a largish heavy-bodied Empid with a medium longish tail, a with a low-rounded crown, and a stout bill. I heard it vocalize unseen on at least 4 occasions - initally faintly at distance but on other occasions loud and clear from 10-15 meters. Initially I heard only a single "pip" note, and later 3 or so bouts of "pip"notes in series. On one occasion it called emphatically while apparently interacting with PSFL. On other occasions no other Empids were noted in the immediate area. There is no question that the ALFL candidate gave the "pip" calls. As I was watching it, it moved just a few feet, landing out of sight, called immediately, and almost as quickly reappeared a few feet away from the calling location. A generally uncooperative bird, it never perched long enough for thorough study - hence I have no info on primary extension or finer detail of plumage color. My views were limited to brief 1-10 second looks with one exception when it moved sort distances btw several mostly visible perches over a 1-2 minute interval. Overall, I viewed it on 4 occasions: first on the lake side of the Scirpus-lined muddy edge of the lake where it perched low on Scirpus stems and dropped onto the mud several times. I also followed it as it made 3 foraging passes along all or part of the willow and Baccaris lined upland edge of the north-most arm of the lake, where it perched at multiple locations and "pipped" infrequently. Search time roughly 4 hours between 1-5 PM, during which I observed it for only a few minutes total! Above composed from notes on plumage, behavior, and call note taken during the observation period. Throughout much of the observation period I/we assumed the "pip" call note confirmed the ID as Alder Flycatcher. During our observation Brian Daniels sent a text message informing me thethat Eastern Willow Flycatchers have been documented/recorded giving "pip" call notes ( Curtis Marantz and others).
Comments added on 4 Oct: after listening to recording "pip" calls from both Alder Flycatcher and Eastern Willow Flycatcher, I feel confident that the calls are sufficiently different in primary pitch (Alder is lower) and duration (Alder is briefer) to be separable with care.To my ear the "pip" calls I heard are a better match to recorded calls of Alder Flycatcher (recordings in the Mccauly LIbrary of Sound and xeno-canto. Furthermore, the "pip" call is a primary vocalization of Alder Flycatcher, but is only an occasional call by Eastern Willow Flycatcher (the "whit" note is its primary call). Given that we heard several bouts of "pip" calls from this flycatcher, but never heard it "whit", is strong evidence that the "pip" call is its primary call - not an ancillary call used in limited contexts - thereby undermining support for its ID as Eastern Willow Flycatcher, and strongly favors its ID as Alder Flycatcher."

All,

I wanted to point out that there is a hawkwatch monitoring web site where we can add our watchpoints and the count data we are getting from these: https://hawkcount.org/index.php

I think it would be worth adding the Bella Vista and Romero Canyon watchpoints and the limited data we have.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] Possibility of more Broad-winged Hawks this year?

I put the daily hawk counts from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory into a spreadsheet and made a graph of Broad-winged Hawks per hour for the period from September 1 to October 4. You can see the resulting graph here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/johncallender/44206177655

The full spreadsheet, including similar graphs for other species, is here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15MG3KXW8WhntIi8wAGq87Zi8FDUB9IWMrte_AErKikE/edit?usp=sharing

There was a big pulse of Broad-wings during the last week of September, but it's slowed to a trickle since then. But I wonder: with the increased northwest winds predicted for the next few days, might we get another pulse of late-departing hawks? Lehman's BoSBC talks about fall Broad-wings appearing along the south coast into early October.

I won't be around Saturday (I'll be on the Island Packers pelagic trip, where the strong northwest winds promise to make things interesting as well, though not necessarily in a conducive-to-birding sense), but I hope to get out to Bella Vista Dr. for at least a little bit this afternoon, and maybe again on Sunday.

I'd be very interested in seeing what people find if they get a chance to visit hawkwatch sites, either Bella Vista Dr./Romero Canyon or along Camino Cielo, over the next few days. I'm also curious whether Figueroa Mountain / Ranger Peak would be good for fall hawkwatching. I haven't seen many eBird lists lately from there lately. But it seems like it might be a good area, just looking at the topography.

If people with more experience are willing to share I'd appreciate hearing their thoughts. Thanks!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Possibility of more Broad-winged Hawks this year?
I put the daily hawk counts from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory into a spreadsheet and made a graph of Broad-winged Hawks per hour for the period from September 1 to October 4. You can see the resulting graph here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/johncallender/44206177655

The full spreadsheet, including similar graphs for other species, is here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15MG3KXW8WhntIi8wAGq87Zi8FDUB9IWMrte_AErKikE/edit?usp=sharing

There was a big pulse of Broad-wings during the last week of September, but it's slowed to a trickle since then. But I wonder: with the increased northwest winds predicted for the next few days, might we get another pulse of late-departing hawks? Lehman's BoSBC talks about fall Broad-wings appearing along the south coast into early October.

I won't be around Saturday (I'll be on the Island Packers pelagic trip, where the strong northwest winds promise to make things interesting as well, though not necessarily in a conducive-to-birding sense), but I hope to get out to Bella Vista Dr. for at least a little bit this afternoon, and maybe again on Sunday.

I'd be very interested in seeing what people find if they get a chance to visit hawkwatch sites, either Bella Vista Dr./Romero Canyon or along Camino Cielo, over the next few days. I'm also curious whether Figueroa Mountain / Ranger Peak would be good for fall hawkwatching. I haven't seen many eBird lists lately from there lately. But it seems like it might be a good area, just looking at the topography.

If people with more experience are willing to share I'd appreciate hearing their thoughts. Thanks!

Alder Flycatcher (Empidonax alnorum) (1)
- Reported Sep 30, 2018 13:00 by Joan Lentz
- Lake Los Carneros County Park, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.6173871,-119.9329376&ll=34.6173871,-119.9329376
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48917986
- Comments: "Let me be clear. I feel that I never saw the bird in the photos that represented the Alder Flycatcher, but because I was present, and I heard what we all assumed was the Alder Flycatcher's call, i would like to describe that. After running futilely from the muddy area up the steep path to the willows and back more than a few times, a bunch of us were up by the big willow clump west of the path and towards the footbridge. At one point, Kristie was there, and she suggested I use my phone for playback just in case the bird responded. It did. It responded twice. After playback once, and during playback once. I never saw the flycatcher utter the call, but it sounded like a rather sharp "peek" or "pic". I am confident that it was not a Willow Flycatcher, because i know the "wit" call of the Willow well. But this bird sounded like a softer --slightly -- version of a Long-billed Dowitcher . I know that may sound preposterous, but it wasn't as sharp as a Downy Woodpecker, nor as squeaky as a Hairy. It had that soft "eek" or "peek" quality, but with a little bite to it. Of course the playback "peep" or "pic" is a louder sound because its right on your phone, but the QUALITY of the response on the part of the purported Alder Flycatcher was definitely close to the sound that I was playing on my phone. I wanted to get this into the record, just in case any of this description might be helpful. My problem was that I wasn't in the right place at the right time, evidently, when any of the photos of the "it" bird were taken. So I cannot comment on appearance."

Subject: [sbcobirding] North and East SB County
SB Birders,

I headed out to Kern County to see Condors this morning and made some stops in our county along the way.

My first stop was Richardson Park in New Cuyama, here we saw 8 Lawerence’s Goldfinches, one Clay-colored Sparrow, one Brewer’s Sparrow and 6 Chipping Sparrows which offered a great comparison. The Lark Sparrows are starting to flock up and seemed to be everywhere. We then checked the Cuyama sewage pond and saw one Baird’s Sandpiper a few Westerns and least. The heat glare was making one bird difficult to put a name on it, but it looked very much like a Semipalmated Sandpiper. A Peregrine Falcon was present also. We then checked a private ranch on Foothill and saw one White-faced Ibis. A Ferruginous Hawk was also seen on a power pole. Later over on Bell Road we saw a Prairie Falcon.
We then checked out the Santa Maria sewage ponds and saw one Pectoral and one Baird’s Sandpiper. One Lesser Yellowlegs was present with the 80 or so Greaters. There is a very cool looking House Finch there with a white head with a slight cast of pink.
The Pectoral Sandpiper still continues at Ocean Park on the west side of the train trestle.

Good birding.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bella Vista Hawk Watch Site Oct. 2
I went back to site this morning and stayed from 10:30 to about 1;15.  I was opening there would be some indication of migrating activity ahead of the incoming front, but I didn't detect any.  I think this is because the frontal boundary (if one develops) was still either very far away and/or too weak to make a difference.
It was very quiet until a little after noon.  Then I had in rapid succession 1 Turkey Vulture and one Sharp-shinned Hawk.  Then nothing for awhile until I heard the scream of a Red-tail behind me and the houses.  I moved to where I could see that area and had 4 Red-tails sail by in rapid succession.  Some of them started circling well to the east and when I looked above them at that point, I found two more Red-tails and a more distant, smaller buteo that may have been a Broad-winged.  It was too far away to tell.
After that it was quiet for a bit.  I was joined by Jerry Rounds and after a bit, we had a few more Red-tails, Turkey Vultures, one Sharp-shinned and one distant Cooper's Hawk.  After 1 p.m.things pretty much stopped, so we left.  There wasn't nearly as much activity as yesterday, although we were seeing the same species of birds and though it was cooler today, they didn't seem to be having any problem finding thermals.  My sense after birding there at noon for two days is that most of what we see then are residents in the general area.
It will be interesting to see if the rain does move through tomorrow, and if so, how it might change the activity over the next couple of days.
Florence Sanchez

Subject: [sbcobirding] Mitchell Road Ferruginous Hawk
All:

This afternoon while walking my dog by the SM Airport, I saw a single Ferruginous Hawk near Mitchell Road. First spotted sitting on the ground inside the airport fence. He then flew to the east side of Mitchell and landed on the ground just east of the fence. A Red Tail took exception and a serious “dust up” occurred. FEHA flew directly overhead as it retreated into the airport. Hopefully the FEHAs that we’re here last year will return. Marc Moritsch and I had as many as 5 at this location last winter.

- Comments: "Nonbreeding female Rose-breasted Grosbeak. The bird was in the tall eucs at the southwest corner of the visitor parking. I based the ID initially mainly on the dark streaking across the center of the breast. After soliciting and receiving much helpful input from experts via the sbcobirding email list, I'd add that the wing linings in the blurry flight photo appear to be a somewhat darker "mustard" yellow, rather than the Black-headed Grosbeak's "lemon" yellow."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Golete warbler spots
All,

I have checked Winchester 1 the last two morning and Evergreen briefly this AM. It was immediately clear on Monday that there has been a large reduction in Yellow and Wilson's Warblers at Winchester 1 and that theme continued at both spots this AM. There were at least 3 BT Grays at Winchester 1 this AM, making it the commonest warbler, and the RB Sapsucker continued.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] mystery hawk tail

Yesterday, Mario and I birded East Camino Cielo. A couple of interesting hawk sightings:

A large soaring hawk with a solid black tail and terminal white band did not show up in Sibley's Help ID-ing would be appreciated.

Also, would Harriers fly that high? We had two fly-over birds with long tails, white rumps, slight dihedral wing positions . . . .

No Broad-wings.

Later, lots of common birds near the creek in Rocky Nook.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Hawk Watch today
After giving the reported Alder Flycatcher a shot this morning (without any real success), I spent the period 11:30-2:00 at the Bella Vista Hawkwatch site.  After about a half-hour, I was joined by John Luther of Oakland.   The past few afternoons have been slow; therefore, I was pleasantly surprised to have a lot of activity over the noon hour.  Nothing rare with one possible exception, but we did see a lot of hawks for a change. After 1 p.m., things slowed down markedly and John & I packed it in at 2:00.
Estimated list:Turkey Vulture--lots!Sharp-shinned Hawk--at least 4Cooper's Hawk--at least 3Red-tailed Hawk--more than a dozen sightings, some may have been of the resident birdsRed-shouldered Hawk--1Northern Harrier (seen by John)--1American Kestrel--2

We also had an unidentified buteo fly to the east of us.  John, who had a better angle on it than I did, thought it could be a Broad-winged Hawk.
It will be interesting to see how the front that will move through tomorrow evening will affect the migration.  We might see some hawk movement ahead of the front.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Sunday birds
Hi all,
I would like to add to Nick’s post. While leading field trips for the WFO conference, last Thursday 9-26 we saw a Brant also at Ocean Park. Yesterday, Sunday 9-30 we also saw a Pectoral Sandpiper at Ocean Park in Lompoc. Along the ag fields we saw a conservative estimate at 60 Tricolored Blackbirds.
We also birded River Park and saw most all of the expected species, our best birds were 12 Lawrence’s Goldfinch, a very nice Clay-colored Sparrow and what I believe was the returning Vermillion Flycatcher, as it was in its favorite tree near the lake.
Our birding route started at Bradbury Dam overlook then went to Cruz’s Ranch that had a Red-naped Sapsucker and my first Golden-crowned Sparrow of this season along with all the great birds she has at the ranch. We also saw one Burrowing Owl and one Mountain Bluebird as we birded our way to Figueroa Mtn Rd where we saw 2 Golden Eagles. We then birded River Park in Lompoc. We also had one Golden Eagle a few miles above Miguelito Park headed straight into the proposed wind turbine farm area. We then hit up a few ag field and ended at Ocean Park with a total of 122 birds. It was another great day of birding along the Santa Ynez River drainage.

Good birding.

Thank you very much to everyone who weighed in on both the grosbeak and on my presumed "empid." I've updated the eBird list to identify the former as a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and the latter as the Western Wood-Peewee that it almost certainly was.

All,

This is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. There is no plumage of Black-headed
that has such thick heavy streaking in the middle of the breast. Also the
mustard yellow wing linings confirm. Bill color is not helpful in the
fall.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Broad-winged Hawk soaring above 101 at DP Ranch
Stopped at Refugio for a bit nothing but common migrant warblers and the continuing White-fronted Goose.

Driving towards Goleta a number of birds in the air, a smaller one caught my eye and fortunately there was an exit dead ahead at DP Ranch. The bird soared west at first but once it gained altitude set it wings and away to the east it went. Very light underneath with dark trailing edge, slightly marked tail etc., Broad-winged Hawk hiding in plain sight.

Alder Flycatcher (Empidonax alnorum) (1)
- Reported Sep 30, 2018 12:22 by Kristie Nelson
- Lake Los Carneros, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.44322,-119.84975&ll=34.44322,-119.84975
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48850311
- Media: 9 Photos
- Comments: "This was a medium/large, rather lanky Empidonax – similar in size and structure to the Willow flycatcher that was at times on the same reed as this bird. Unlike the Willow, this bird had exceptionally crisp, sharp, well-contrasting white tertial edges and wing-bars. The other thing that stood in very stark contrast to the Willow flycatcher was this birds very long primary projection. Because it had thin white tips on the primaries, I could clearly see that the number of primaries projecting past the tertials was substantially longer than the Willow flycatcher, which made the Willow look very stubby winged compared to the Alder. When I counted what looked like 6 primary tips extending on the Alder and about 4-5 on the Willow, I ran for the camera.
The eye-ring was slightly better defined than on the Willow. Also the bill looked a little smaller.
Calls: The bird called several times over the course of the few hours I was there. Unfortunately no one as far as I know actually observed it calling nor obtained a recording, which is a bummer, but considering how difficult it was to see and stay on this bird visually in the thick vegetation, it isn’t too surprising. However, a few times I and others heard the distinctive pip calls which were distinctively Empidonax in quality coming from the bushes where this bird had been seen. The times I heard it calling:
• There was a Pacific-slope flycatcher present. At one point right as I got visual on the Pac-slope, it dive-bombed a second Empidonax which I barely saw, as my focus had been on the Pac-slope. The second Empid dropped off and down to my left, behind some vegetation, and called several times – Empid quality pip notes, which I would consider a bit lower and less sharp than a Hammond’s. It didn’t sound particularly agitated, although it was following an interaction. A few other of the observers also heard this. I was thrilled and relived to finally hear promising or downright confirming vocalizations.
• Some time later, Joan Lentz played ALFL calls a couple times on her phone. The first time we had no response, but the second time there was. After the second time we listened quietly and at first heard nothing. For a few moments I thought there was no response, but then from the bushes near us, again the distinctive pip calls were heard. I was thrilled as I heard clearly Empid quality pip calls coming from where the bird had been. It called in two short bouts during this time. Again I would describe the calls as slightly lower and a bit less sharp than a Hammond’s. Hearing these calls a second time confirmed the identification as Alder in my mind.
I may have heard it call another time when I first arrived on the site. As I was first approaching the lakeshore before I encountered the two Empidonax, I had heard a single pip note. As I got out to the shore, there were two Long-billed dowitchers there. I just assumed the pip came from one of them, but something about it – that it was just a single note – had seemed odd. But I had forgotten about that until - the moment that Joan first played the ALFL call. That was the sound I had heard! But, it is entirely possible I heard the LBDO, and I hardly consider this worth mentioning. But in retrospect, it is likely I heard the bird call and passed it off as a LB dowtcher. I would describe the calls we heard in the bushes as very similar to a Long-billed dowitcher."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Sunday birds
All,

I birding the Lompoc area on Sunday morning. In the ag field W of town, I found a Bobolink and a Grasshopper Sparrow. Ocean Beach Park was very quiet. A juv Whitefront and an adult Brant appeared to be new. I got a brief look at a Bank Swallow in a small swallow flock that passed through. There were 3 WF Ibis. There are now 4 newish broods of Clark's Grebes but interestingly none of Western.

Miguelito Park had a couple of Hermit Warblers and a single BT Gray.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Bella Vista Hawkwatch site this p.m.
I got there this afternoon about 2:30.  Rebecca Coulter and friends had been there for about two hours.  They hadn't seen anything the the usual hawks we've been observing most of the time down there:  Red-tails, Cooper's & Sharpies.  They left before 3:00 p.m.  I stayed until 4:45.  Jim Long joined me for part of the time.  My count for the day:
8 Turkey Vultures4 Red-tails*2 Sharp-shinned Hawks1 Cooper's Hawk
I also had a fast look at a Falcon that appeared to be a Merlin.  It was a small Falcon, definitely not a Peregrine, and appeared to be very dark.  It was flying rapidly east to west just over the vegetation above the road and disappeared behind it.  I looked for a long time but did not see it emerge.  The overall dark color on the wings and back and the rapid steady flight is what makes me think Merlin; however, there has been an American Kestrel reported in the vicinity most days and because of the brief time I saw this bird, I could be mistaken.

I’ve changed the bird to “passerine sp.” in eBird based on input that it could in fact be a Black-headed Grosbeak. Live and learn...

I’d be interested in hearing any additional opinions. Thanks!

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Possible Alder Flycatcher
All,

Just to add a bit more. A bird called shortly after Alder Flycatcher
playback several times that was sounded exactly the same as the call in the
playback. Although we didn't see the source of the call, it seems
reasonable that it was the flycatcher observed in the field. The bird shows
a well-marked narrow eye-ring, more so than I can recall on Willow, along
with more contrasting wings, and a longer primary projection.

This morning I saw a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak in the eucalyptus grove next to the parking lot at Lake Los Carneros. Photos here:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48840772

Interestingly, I also got some poor photos of an empid northeast of the lake, in the same area where the excitement happened later with the possible Alder Flycatcher. My photos were from a bad angle, and could well show a Willow Flycatcher (which is what I assumed the bird I saw was at the time). But you can see the best of the photos I got in the same list.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Upper Romero Canyon Road Hawk Watch
Yesterday I tried out a new-to-me spot for hawk watching: Along the upper part of Romero Canyon Road, on a southward facing spur with good views to the west, south, and east. It's just a little bit northwest of the Romero Canyon Road hawk watch site we've been using, on the other side (the western side) of Romero Canyon. It's higher up, at 2800 feet elevation, as opposed to the lower site's 1500-foot elevation. You can actually see where I was if you look up at the big ridge west of Romero Canyon, because the upper part of Romero Canyon Road is clearly visible on the hillside. I was watching from the southernmost point on that upper section of road, at (34.463240, -119.601743).

I reached that spot by driving up Gibraltar Road to E. Camino Cielo, then driving east on E. Camino Cielo to the end of the pavement at Romero Saddle. I parked there, then rode my mountain bike 1 mile south along Romero Canyon Road to the site. It was an easy, gentle downhill; coming back took more effort, but it wasn't too long or steep.

Here's a hawk's eye view of the various sites, looking northwest:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/johncallender/44110557045

There was lots of raptor activity up there, though I didn't see any Broad-winged Hawks. My list is here:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48826909

Interestingly, almost all the raptors I saw were near my elevation or above me; I saw relatively few down below at the elevation of the lower hawk watch site or the Bella Vista Drive site (both of which I could see from my location). This despite the fact that Cuyler Stapelmann was at the lower site and saw a Broad-winged Hawk and two Northern Harriers circling together at the same time I was watching. I didn't see any of those birds. I think this reflects the difficulty of picking out flying hawks when the ground, rather than the sky, is the backdrop.

I also think that I was seeing a lot of raptor activity that we miss from the lower sites, however. Sharp-shinned and Cooper's hawks were whipping by close to the ridge at eye level; I think it would have been hard to pick out most of those birds from below.

In summary, I think this is a useful spot for hawk watching. If a marine layer has the lower sites socked in it might be worth trying to get above the clouds and watch from there. I don't think it should replace watching from the lower sites, especially since nearly all of the Broad-winged Hawks seen around here in the last few weeks have been at lower elevation. But if we get a day with good northerly winds in the next few weeks and if there are people already covering the lower-elevation sites, it might be worth someone heading up there to expand our coverage.

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48831271
- Comments: "When I looked overhead to explain to Libby what the "little hawk" flying with the Turkey Vultures was, I saw a small Buteo, very pale, almost white underneath, with no patagial marks on the leading edges of the wings. The wings were outlined with black, and slightly pointed at the tip. However, the whole bird was a classic Buteo shape, except small, with a small broad tail which appeared to have some bands on it, but by that time the bird was so distant I really couldn't make out those details. As I said above, the Broad-winged Hawk was flying in a loose association with a kettle of Turkey Vultures, and once it finished circling high above us, it flew very rapidly in an eastward direction. I called Conor up at the Bella Vista hawkwatch station hoping he might've gotten onto it, but I am afraid the bird was flying too far out onto the coastal plain for hawkwatchers up there to have seen it. I had just observed 4 of this species day before yesterday at the Bella Vista site, so I felt confident in identifying this bird as it circled gradually higher and higher overhead and then flew directly east. It was a life bird for Libby."

- Comments: "When I looked overhead to explain to Libby what the "little hawk" flying with the Turkey Vultures was, I saw a small Buteo, very pale, almost white underneath, with no patagial marks on the leading edges of the wings. The wings were outlined with black, and slightly pointed at the tip. However, the whole bird was a classic Buteo shape, except small, with a small broad tail which appeared to have some bands on it, but by that time the bird was so distant I really couldn't make out those details. As I said above, the Broad-winged Hawk was flying in a loose association with a kettle of Turkey Vultures, and once it finished circling high above us, it flew very rapidly in an eastward direction. I called Conor up at the Bella Vista hawkwatch station hoping he might've gotten onto it, but I am afraid the bird was flying too far out onto the coastal plain for hawkwatchers up there to have seen it. I had just observed 4 of this species day before yesterday at the Bella Vista site, so I felt confident in identifying this bird as it circled gradually higher and higher overhead and then flew directly east. It was a life bird for Libby."

Subject: [sbcobirding] Warblers Alice Keck Park
I was under the Tipuana Tipu trees watching a variety of warblers when a
group from the WFO arrived. I followed the talk (which I learned was given
by Jon Dunn) and in the process was able to see and photograph, though
poorly, a Blackpoll Warbler for the first time. We also saw Wilson's,
Black-throated Gray, Yellow-Rumped, and a Nashville. A House Wren was
vocalizing. As the group was leaving I saw Joan Lentz with a group of
birders who was helping John. It was a good morning. I believe that the
fact that the creek is now clean as is the pond has something to do with
the presence of so many warblers.

Yesterday I tried the hawk watch at Bella Vista where several of us saw
Cooper's, Sharp-shinned, and Red-tailed but alas no Broad-winged. I
realized that to see the hawks really required a scope since they are quite
distant. Perhaps I'll give that a try later today.

Subject: [sbcobirding] HAWKWATCH - Sunday AM
Conor and I just spent 2 hours (9:30 AM to 11:30 AM) at the Bella Vista
Hawkwatch spot. The highlights were a single BROAD-WINGED HAWK (11 AM),
SWAINSON’S HAWK (10:52 AM), a ROCK WREN that perched on the wire in front
of us and called for awhile, and 2 RAVENS flying North. Also seen: Many
COOPER’S, SHARP-SHINNED, RED-TAILED HAWKS, plus a single RED-SHOULDERED and
KESTRAL made an apppearance.

FYI: The owners of the house we’ve all been watching outside of drove by to
see what we were up to but seemed friendly and simply curious about what
everyone has been doing.

Happy birding,

No luck on this one at the Bell Vista Hawk watch site, at least not as of the time I left.  Very dull day up there even though conditions were good for viewing.  I arrived at the site probably just after the Broadwinged-Harrier combo flew over.   Oh Well.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Ynez Peak - Tennessee Warbler and more
Went up to west Camino Cielo hoping for some hawk movement but it was quite socked in most of the way along the crest. It finally opened up (off and on) near Santa Ynez Peak where I also found Brad Hacker. As we stood and compared birding notes we were adjacent to a small patch of trees and shrubs which was quite birdy. This was one of the few parts of the peak sticking above the clouds so the birds were maybe finding it that way. While Brad was present we had Orange-crowned, Townsends and Nashville Warbler, multiple Swainson's Thrush, at least 2 Western Tanager, Purple Finch, Rufous-crowned Sparrow and a good number of White-crowned Sparrow. Brad reported having seen Rock Wren and Golden-crowned Sparrow before our paths crossed. After Brad and I parted ways I went back to the little hot spot and birds just continued to drop in. Tennessee Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Chipping Sparrow and Black-headed Grosbeak were added to the list. The only hawks were two Sharp-shinned and a few local Red-tails.

Looks at the Tenn. and Chippers here:

Subject: [sbcobirding] Coastal hotspots today
This morning I toured 3 coastal spots, hoping for some land bird activity. Like our barely changing sycamores and poison oak, signs of fall were very subtle on the bird front. I spent the most time at El Capitan State Beach, thinking it may not have been covered as much as other coastal spots lately. What used to be a really productive fall morning’s walk through the campground was largely devoid of birds today. I’m not sure if others have noticed that there is almost no fruit on the holly-leaf cherry in most places around town; I found the same at this location, with large patches of dead foliage on most. No tanagers or grosbeaks anywhere, and migrant warblers were scarce, with a Wilson’s, a few Townsend’s and a Black-throated Gray on the nature trail loop to the beach. I was surprised by two Western Wood-Pewee hawking insects along the trail. The creek is totally dry all the way to the ocean.

A quick stop at Refugio SB continued the recent theme of “funereal,” though I didn’t stay long due to some prolonged screaming in the campground. My last stop was a walk at Gaviota to the Wind Caves trailhead. Almost 100% bird-free, though it was near noon by then. A flock of Bushtits and a Song Sparrow were the only birds I saw in the fennel. On the return walk I watched the ridge over Gaviota Peak for any signs of raptor movement. A dozen or so Turkey Vultures moved mostly southeast, and way in the distance was a clear group—maybe 10 birds—of smaller, flatter-winged raptors of some sort, moving rapidly east. I didn’t have a scope, though at that distance I doubt it would’ve been too helpful. But they were intriguing.

A quiet day on the coast overall. The Cal Thrashers are pretty vocal right now, though, which is always such a treat and made the day.

There is a MacGillivray’s Warbler in the blackberry thicket behind Fortuna Park, in Isla Vista. It looked like an adult male to me. See the dropped pin below for exact location where I saw it.

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Attempted Hawk Watch E of Santa Maria
HiI remember reports from Farren Road that were suggestive that the low saddle west of the gun club/east of broadcast peak may be a good passage way. Waterbirds were seen going up canyon if I recall..
Probably one could drive to the spot west of the saddle via Refugio then east on Camino Cielo. At that point the road becomes very rough dirt, but one could stay at the higher elevation and have the afternoon sun behind you, also allowing you a view downslope north and south. 
     The last time I was there I went back out after dark and many small owls were dashing out into the car lights all the way back to Refugio Road.
Another potential view spot at Gaviota would be the trail going up past the wind caves west of 101 that at the saddle can take you out to the overlook spot above the tunnel and rest stops, west of the Trespass Trail spot already mentioned. Go past the campground and up the hill, park at the top for the trailhead.happy hawking,Ken Hoesterey

I hiked Franklin Trail up to the 4 mile mark from 10:00am to 2:00pm. I had
15 raptor sightings on the way up and down. Nine of the sightings were
between the 3 mile and 4 mile markers. The most exciting was a Golden
Eagle at about 3.5 miles. It approached from the southeast, large and very
dark- it seemed black. It came in from above and I could see the white
patches at the base of the primaries on the underside of the wing. As it
flew by me it dropped down and I could see the bright white tail with black
tips, and a brownish/gold back of the head. It was a thrill!

I also saw a singular Broad Winged Hawk just past the 4 mile mark. Light
colored underneath with black tips and black trailing edge on wings. Black
and white barred tail very distinct. Also saw one on the way back at about
1.5 miles flying with three Red Tails, although it broke off after a
few minutes. The three Red Tails were very scruffy. One was particularly
tattered, missing several feathers and looked like it had just been through
the ringer. The other two looked similar, although not quite as scruffy.

Others included 2 Cooper's, 2 Cooper/Sharpie (to far to tell which), 3
Kestrels, and 5 Red Tails in total.

Also saw some returning birds: White crown sparrow, several Yellow rumped
warblers, and two Western Meadowlarks.

It was quite overcast up to the 3 mile mark. After the Duca Bench (3.3
miles) it was sunny, blue sky, and warm. That is the section where I saw
most of the raptors.
Regards, Mario

Subject: [sbcobirding] Attempted Hawk Watch E of Santa Maria
I found a peak at the S end of Colson Canyon that gave good 360 degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys so thought I would at least give it a go for hawk movement. I spent from 10:00 am until noon hoping to see some movement. Location here:
https://mapper.acme.com/?ll=34.93208,-120.16640&z=12&t=T&marker0=34.93208%2C-120.16640%2C23.2%20km%20NxNE%20of%20Los%20Alamos%20CA

Notes as follows:
10:00 Clear, mid 50's gentle breeze from S, visible marine layer out on coastal plain
10:38 2 Coopers Hawks moving S
10:58 1 Coopers 1 Red-tailed moving about likely local birds
11:03 2 Common Raven moving from NW to SE
11:15 Wind picks up considerably but still from S
11:35 3 Red-tailed milling about to the west, likely local birds
11:45 1 Sharp-shinned moving rapidly from N to S

There were White-throated Swift moving about some at very close range and I also had some Coopers not listed above but moving around like locals and at very close range. 1 Tree Swallow and 3 Violet-green Swallow moved by.

On to plan C tomorrow., maybe a spot on W Camino Cielo
