Subject: [sbcobirding] Arctic Tern
Coal Oil Point, Monday morning, August 19, 2019

This morning, birding with Mario Borunda and Andrea Bruce, we observed a small tern with black extending from eye patch to top and back of head, extensive gray on upper wing, black legs and short BLACK beak. I think we have a second Arctic Tern; John Callender’s photo from yesterday clearly shows a red beak.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Area K morning of Aug. 19
Had only time for a little birding today so went to Area K to ee what was up.  A lot of Black-necked Stilts were working the shallow pond and there seemed to be a few other birds around the perimeter, especially to the east.  However, that estimate proved to be faulty. When something startled the birds slightly, everyone flew to the middle of the pond and I could see that there were a lot more present than I thought.  
My Stilt count was 32; at least 6 Lesser Yellowlegs and 1 Greater; at least a dozen Dowitchers; at least 10 Western Sandpipers; 4 Least Sandpipers; 4 Wilson's Phalaropes; 2 Kildeer.  I never heard the "keek" call of Long-billed Dowitcher but did get a few short "tu-tu-" calls as the flock moved around.  However, with Lesser Yellowlegs also present, I could not be sure of the call.
There were two shite-faced Ibis working the far shore and two Snowy Egrets were present in the west end.  Waterfowl were sarce:  about 8 coots and 1 mallard.
Definitely still a place to watch, and the water is going to last quite a while yet.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Cassin’s Vireos on Kinevan
Though not many birds were seen in Kinevan today, at about 11:30am a Cassin’s Vireo sang near the junction with West Camino Cielo. Back on Kinevan Rd at 3:30pm, a pair was singing about 120m downstream of the upper new bridge. Another pair sang at the new bridge.
5 singers in 3 different places. Both males and females of this species sing so I suspect these pairs are birds still on territory.

Crows digging pits in the sand and probing for whatever (first time I’ve seen that behavior). Mallards wading in the surf and foraging in the sand. 100 each Western, CA, and (mostly imm.) Heermann’s Gulls. A single first-of-season Ring-billed Gull.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Reddish Egret at Guadalupe Dunes-Santa Maria River
All:
I will post on E Bird later.  At 1045 hrs today (8/17), I saw and photographed a Reddish Egret in the Santa Maria River about 0.5 miles east of the ocean.  It was in one of the riparian areas that are easily observed from the road.  There were also 4 Great Egrets in that area.  For what it's worth, I tied pink marking tape on the fence alongside the road from where I photographed the REEG.

Ten Least Terns on Sands Beach this AM, at least 4 of which were wearing

Subject: [sbcobirding] SB Harbor and Mission Creek
Thursday, 8/15, 9:00-10:30 am

Started at the SB Harbor Breakwater. Lots of shorebirds: Willet, Whimbrel, Marbled Godwit, Long-billed Curlew, one Black-bellied plover, and 12 Black Turnstone all on the beach west of the base of the breakwater. 3 Juvenile Long-billed Curlew had me baffled until I could look at reference materials. The bill is so much smaller than on adults, nearly identical to those of Whimbrels. I'm surprised that I had not seen this before as the species is quite familiar. I got a very poor quality photo with my cell phone which I will post later if I can improve the image.

The Mission Creek outfall was also rich in large shorebirds of the same species seen earlier this morning (except no turnstone). There were also 30 Black Skimmers here. Both sites had lots of gulls but all the same 3 species that have been around lately (Western, California, and Heerman's). I looked hard, in vain, for Ring-billed. I know it's too early for Mew or Glaucous-winged or Thayer's, but I don't recall Ring-billed arriving so much later than the other common species. Always so much to learn.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] Least Terns at Devereux
There were 2 Least Terns at the Devereux slough mouth this AM. The one I saw well was a juvenile.

The slough was full of small and medium shore birds; the most I have seen there this season. One quick spotting scope pass didn’t reveal anything great, but that isn’t saying much. I did see Lesser Yellowlegs, an Avocet, lots of Dowitcher, Wilson’s and Red-Necked Phalarope, and tons of peeps.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Area K and Devereux
I birded both locations this morning.  Did not find Teal or Ibis at Area K this morning but had a nice assortment of shorebirds:both Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Long-billed and Short-billed Dowitchers, Western and Least Sandpipers, Red-necked and Wilson's Phalaropes.

At Devereux, conditions were great for birding.  There must have been at least 75 Semi-palmated Plovers south of the first pull-out along with a few Kildeer.  There were both Long-billed and Short-billed Dowitchers present (calls of LB, golden pattern on tertials of juvenile SB), some hanging out in a small ditch right next to the road.  I had only a couple each of Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs.  There were about a dozen Red-necked phalaropes swimming near the far side of the estuary.  An American Avocet was feeding well out, indicating how shallow the water is even in the middle of the estuary.  A lot of the Egrets flew to the roost while I was there--I counted 27 in all, along with 8 Great Egrets and 6 Great Blue Heron.  I also had 2 Black-crowned Night Herons in different places, but no Yellow-crowned and no Neotropic Cormorant.
A really good way to view the Devereux birds is to park up at the half bridge and walk back along the road, stopping at several points where there is wide enough shoulder to set up a scope safely.  Eventually, you will reach a solid paved spot over the top of a drainage pipe and that is a prime spot right now.  As the water recedes, the birds will move farther out but right now it's good.

There were 32 WF Ibis at Area K along with 10 Lesser Yellowlegs and 6 SB Dowitcher. A new family of BW Teal had 3 tiny doomed ducklings.

Devereux was very foggy but had all the continuing recent shorebird species including at least a few SB Dowitcher.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Campus Point, Sewage Treatment Plant
Tuesday, 8/13, 8:00-9:15 am

Walked from Goleta Beach to Campus Point this morning. Fairly birdy. Lots of Semipalmated Plovers and Western Sandpipers, a few Least Sandpipers. Greater Yellowlegs were numerous (12) but no Lesser seen. Lots of single individuals in other species: Whimbrel, Spotted Sandpiper, Surfbird, Black Turnstone, Wandering Tattler. A Caspian Tern flew by. All three usual (for this time of year) gull species present (Western, California, Heerman's). Lagoon was basically empty on this end.

Made a quick stop at the Sewage Treatment Plant hoping for early fall arrivals. No luck. Very little exposed mud in the top pool and almost no shorebirds. Lots of Black-necked Stilt and a single Solitary Sandpiper along with a flock of Western Gulls. Abundant female and young Mallards but I couldn't find any other ducks. Looking forward to things picking up soon.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Below is a list of those species that we’ve detected breeding between 15
August and 30 September in the last three years. Before looking at the
list, what do you think some of those late-breeding species might be?



The more contributions we receive, the better the results of all sorts of
questions reflect what’s actually happening in nature in Santa Barbara
County.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Long Canyon Road, Northern SBC
Peter Schneekloth and I birded Long Canyon Road today.  We saw 31, mostly expected species.  The highlight was 4 White Tailed Kites.  Earlier this year, I reported a pair of WTKI breeding.  Apparently they were successful.  At least one, likely two, of the WTKIs we observed today were juveniles.  Checklist is attached.
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58947496
On the way out, we saw this beauty crossing the road.  We stopped long enough for a few pics, and to escort him safely across the road.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Help locate Least Bell's vireo
You can help endangered birds in Santa Barbara County. We are asking skilled local birders for help in locating and documenting endangered Least Bell’s vireos (Vireo bellii pusillus) in the Los Padres National Forest in the final weeks of 2019 season.

Documented observations can be shared to eBird following these guidelines https://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/2885265-sensitive-species-in-ebird ( https://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/2885265-sensitive-species-in-ebird ) or they can be shared directly with the Ventura-based conservation non-profit Paso Pacifico using the email <sarah...> or phone 805-643-7044. The organization will organize reports and then share results with forest managers.

As a bonus, Paso Pacifico will send the first five observers a signed copy of “A Guide to the Birds of Nicaragua”, but observations must have location and photographs or audio recording. Observations must be within the Los Padres National Forest Santa Barbara, Mount Pinos, or Ojai Ranger Districts and they must occur in areas open to the public.

Thank you all for your participation and support for the Last Bell’s vireo!
Sincerely,
Sarah Otterstrom <sarah...>

Subject: [sbcobirding] White Dove on Valerio Street.
I have seen what appears to be an all white Eurasian collared dove along
with a regular Eurasian collared dove on East Valerio Street above the 400
block. I'm wondering if it's a pet bird that has escaped or is it an albino
Eurasian. Walking my dog I had only a smartphone with me. Any ideas?

Ps, it does have a black patch on its wing seen in flight.

Subject: [sbcobirding] weekend shorebirds
All,

I checked Area K and Devereux twice each on Saturday and once each today. I
also checked Ocean Beach Park this morning, It was rather foggy there.

There are now large numbers (250) of Black-bellied Plovers roosting on
Devereux and Semiplamated Plovers have increased to over 100. Plenty of
Least and Westerns, but nothing of interest with them. A few of both
yellowlegs and phalaropes continue. 3 Short-billed Dowitcher juvs finally
showed up today and hopefully these will get commoner. The Avocet continues.

The eastern middle part of Area K is starting to pull in more birds. Today
there were 8 Lesser and 5 Greater Yellowlegs, both species of dowitcher and
phalarope, lots of peeps and stilts. It's reminding me a lot more of the
Area K of the early and mid 2000s than 2017 and looks very promising. All 3
teal species remain.

Ocean Baech had many more (23) Short-billed Dowichers and (27) Greater
Yellowlegs with almost 300 RN Phalaropes, along with other expected
species. There were at least 14 Least Terns, including some juvs on the
sandbar.

All,

I had a probable white-winged dove at Refugio SB. Unfortunately I was on my bicycle and sans bins. It flushed from the creek and flew towards the entrance station. Prominent white inner wings were clearly visible in flight.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereaux Field Trip for SBAS
Saturday, 8/10, 8:00-10:30 am

Led a field trip for SBAS this morning with 16 participants. The morning started off well and just got better. At the meeting spot (West end of Del Playa in Isla Vista) the Eucalyptus trees had, among the more common species, Downy Woodpecker, Western Bluebird, Oak Titmouse, Hooded Oriole and, best of all, Chestnut-backed Chickadee!

Walking the beaches around Coal Oil Point produced the usual recent assortment of shorebirds: Willet, Whimbrel, Black-bellied, Semipalmated and Snowy Plover, Least and Western Sanpiper, and Sanderling. The pleasant surprise were two young Least Tern which I had not seen here in recent visits around the Plover Reserve. Other birds of note included an Osprey fly-by and Brandt's Cormorant at sea. Very few gulls around today.

After the field trip ended, I went to the Devereaux Pull-outs briefly. Nick Lethaby and Jim Hodgeson were at the first and will give a fuller account I'm sure. Birds here included Lesser Yellowlegs, Red-necked Phalarope, Caspian Tern and a single American Avocet among the other common birds reported lately. The Neotropical Cormorant was at its usual roost at the second pull-out and finally stayed while I got long, lingering looks.

I've also seen a lot of activity in my yard in the last 24 hours so believe a land bird push may be coming through our area now. Will report in again when I've had a chance to pinpoint what's around.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux and Area K in the afternoon
I don't usually birdwatch in the afternoon, but I was able to get out today and check both Devereux and Area K.  Devereux was literally crawling with small shorebirds from one side to the other.  I found the lighting was better if I parked at the turnout by the bridge to nowhere and then walked back around the shoreline with the sun at my back.  The species I found included Western and Least Sandpipers, Semi-palmated Plovers and Kildeer, and both Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs.  There were so many shorebirds on the eastern side of the wet mudflat that I considered walking down the dune pond path and trying to scope form that side, but though I could see access points for viewing , it did not appear I could get close enough for good looks at the little guys.   Through my scope, most of the birds there seemed to be Semi-palmated Plovers.  Heat shimmer would also be a problem.
Other birds seen here were both great and Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron, Double-crested and Neotropic Cormorants, and a few Caspian Terns, as well as the usual ducks.
I then went over to Area K of the Goleta Slough and found the light conditions were perfect for scanning from the bluff.  Two Teal sp. took to the air just as I set up.  Clough conditions are getting good for shorebirds, with a lot of exposed mud around the edges.  There were about 8 black-necked Stilts in the middle of the pond and on the water, I found 4 juvenile Red-necked Phalaropes and a Wilson's Phalarope.  At the edge of some mid-pond vegetation, I found 1 each Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and two Dowitchers (very red underneath, appearing to extend all the way to the tail).  In the newly exposed mud on the far side, I scoped out 2 Least Sandpipers.  So I think birders should try to check this area daily as more species drop in.
I heard a Virginia Rail call once from the ditch vegetation immediately below the bluff.

Shorebirds are well dispersed here at 10:55am. Wonderful mix of adult and juvenile plumaged peeps. It seems many more juvenile Leasts have arrived since just 2 days ago. Five Lesser Yellowlegs, 1 American Avocet (here since at least 5 Aug), 9 Caspian Terns. I did not see either the Yellow-crowned N-Holmgren, M. Or the Neotropic Cormorant.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux is perfect.....for the "Short-billed Western Sandpiper"!
Hi All: This morning was so much fun—lots of shorebirds packing in and out of Devereux as water levels are dropping. The list hasn’t been posted to eBird yet, but wanted to give you the highlights.
Every year, there’s always the search for the first Semipalmated Sandpiper, a rarity amongst our Western and Least Sandpipers, and every year I mid-identify a “short-billed Western Sandpiper”, thinking it’s a Semipalmated Sandpiper. Never mind, it’s a humbling experience, but who cares? Figuring out shorebirds when they’re this close to Slough Rd. is what it’s all about. This morning we (Libby, Glenn, and myself) thought we had a candidate, but it didn’t pass the test of taking the photos home and looking at them! Alas. Indeed, bill length is variable in Western Sandpipers, and for Semi Sand you need a short, tubular bill that’s even to the tip; our candidate had a short bill, but it tapered. It’s so amazing how you can’t tell this well in the field, but it comes out in the photos.
Other highlights were an avocet, 2 Lesser Yellowlegs, 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 5 Wilson’s and 7 Red-necked Phalaropes, 5 or 6 Black-bellied Plovers, many Semipalmated Plovers, a dowitcher (sp.), 3 Caspian Terns, and many peeps. Of the ones we could identify close by, on the eastern side of the slough, there were about 20 Westerns and about 6 Least Sandpipers. But there were a lot of birds over on the western side, which were too far for i.d.
Happy humbling experience!!

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Black-throated Gray Warbler @ Coronado Seep
I too saw the Black-throated Gray Warbler at the end of Coronado Drive this morning.  I walked down to the creek area from Newport Drive starting around 8 a.m. this morning, when it was very quiet.  It was also foggy and overcast.  After finding only a few birds, I headed up to the bluffs and walked the trails for awhile.  I was particularly interested in seeing what the fennel situation is.  There are some patches of fennel on the bluffs, the largest clumps near the western end.  At this point, it's hard to tell if they will be productive for migrants in the week ahead.  The fog gradually burned off and I returned to the Eucalypus, where I ran into Adrian and Ken.  Adrian mentioned he'd had C-B chickadees and a couple of Orange-crowned Warblers at the puddle, so I went back for another check and found the Black-throated Gray, as well as two Pacific Slope Flycatchers that had not been there earlier.  This area tends to be best when the sun is out and also at mid-morning.
The puddle at the end of Coronado Drive is the only water around--the rest of the creek is dry.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Maria
SB Birders,

I made a short stop by the Los Alamos Sewage treatment plant and saw just a few peeps, nothing exciting. I am just dropping this note so you all know that there is some, but not too much habitat there and is worth checking.

Santa Maria Sewage,
61 Red-necked and 37 Wilson’s Phalaropes, 21 Greater and one Lesser Yellowlegs, 100ish peeps and a few Semipalmated Plovers.

Black Road Field,
Has a little mud left and had a dozen or so peeps and a couple Semipalmated Plovers and Horned Larks.
The dirt piles were being spread out with a bulldozer on the north side of the property. Well, after looking at this location it is definitely the low spot around here and the neighboring properties have been manipulated for agricultural purposes. I really do not know the history of this location. I do hope it remains the same for future bird habitat.

Good birding.

All,

I checked Devereux yesterday evening and at lunch today. There is an American Avocet around right now. Yesterday, I also saw 7 Lesser Yellowlegs and a Long-billed Dowitcher. At lunch today a single Lesser Yellowlegs, 3 Short-billed Dowitchers, and a Wilson's Phalarope. Many of the smaller shorebirds were too distant to be accurately identified. My perception is that the larger probing shorebirds are not feeding much food here currently and birds are mostly passing through rather than sticking around.

Subject: [sbcobirding] DEVEREUX AND SANDS BEACH 8-7-19
I checked Devereux between 7:30-8:00 this morning and there were no shorebirds in the east bay or across the water, so I parked and walked out to Coal Oil Point and Sands Beach.  The tide was receding (loa tide about 9:30 a.m.) and there were a fair number of shorebirds on the beaches.  At Coal Oil Point, I had 1 Whimbrel and 6 Black-bellied Plovers, but not Turnstones.  Walking west along the beach, I had lots of Black-bellied Plovers, Sanderlings, and Snowy Plovers, as well as 2 Marbled Godwits.  The flock of resting gulls on the beach included a couple of first year Heerman's gulls and a fresh-plumaged  juvenile Western Gull.  In the dry sand amonst the Plovers, I found 6 Least Sandpipers.
At the point were access from the beach to the Dune Pond was allowed, I took the path to the pond.  The water level is too high for shorebirds still, but I had a fly-over Spotted Sandpiper and a juvenile Northern Phalarope was swimming on the pond.  There were about a dozen Mallards at various times, a couple of coots, and a family of Pied-billed Grebes (3 chicks).  A single Black-crowned Night Heron was in the reeds along the far shore.  The best bird I had there was a Loggerhead shrike sitting on a dead shrub near the water's edge.  The birds had a faint buffy tone to the plumage and the bill was not very large or hooked yet, making me suspect this might be a bird hatched this year.  The question is, where?  Sorry that I forgot my camera today.  It was close enough for even my simple camera to get a pretty good photo.
Walking back along the beach, I decided to count Snowy Plovers as there seems to be a lot of them about this morning.  I came up with 46.  A final check of Coal Oil Point turned up 3 Willets.
Driving back along Slough Road, I found some small shorebirds in the rapidly drying up bay.  Scoping the lot turned up Kildeer, Western Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, and Semi-palmated Plovers.  I also had a candidate for Semi-palmated Sandpiper, but I needed to see it a little closer up to make that call for sure.
I cruised by Area K and found that Snowy Egrets are starting to gather there.  This is another sign that the Slough pond is starting to dry up and it will be good for shorebirds soon.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereaux Tuesday morning
Tuesday, 8/6, 9:00-11:00 am

The first pull out had good numbers of peeps on the far, muddy shore (Semipalmated Plover, Western and Least Sandpiper). Best birds here were three Caspian Tern.

The bay east of the pull outs had one each of Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs.

The Neotropical Cormorant was in its usual perch at the second pull out. It flew down the channel as soon as I arrived and spent a few minutes feeding before I lost it. No Yellow-crowned Night Heron.

The beaches on either side of Coal Oil Point had numerous shorebirds. The best was a single Black Turnstone feeding in the washed up kelp by the plover reserve. Other species included Whimbrel, Willet, Least Sandpiper, Sanderling, Black-bellied Plover, Semipalmated Plover, Snowy Plover (no young seen) and a cluster of gulls with roughly equal numbers of Western, California, and Heerman's (2 first year birds). No Least Terns again. Hope they make an appearance soon.

The Agave are blooming nicely with numerous Hooded Orioles visiting.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] UCSB Beaches 8-6-19
I walked the UCSB beaches this morning starting at about 7:30.  Low tide was at 8:32 this morning.
There was quite a bit of activity on the east-facing beach south of the wooden stairs from the parking lot above.  While walking that stretch, I had 27 Semi-palmated Plovers, 6 Black-bellied Plovers, 2 Whimbrel, 19 Greater Yellowlegs, an unidentified sandpiper fly-by, and nearer the rocks 1 Wandering Tattler and 3 Black Turnstones.  On the rocks were another Tattler, 2 more Turnstones, and another Whimbrel.
ON the south facing beach, I had a flock of around 10 Least Sandpipers, mostly in the dry sand.  The small gull flock here was mostly WEstern Gulls, with 2 second-year Heerman's gulls as well.  A little further along, I had 2 Long-billed Curlew, 2 more Whimbrel, three Least Sandpipers, 4 Semi-palmated Plovers, 1 Willet, and 1 Western Sandpiper.
The only shorebird at the Lagoon was a single Kildeer.  There were only a few double-crested cormorants at the various roosts--no Neotropic here.

I must have missed Mark Bright by an hour or so!  I walked down to the breakwater and sandspit from Shoreline Park this morning, starting out around 7:30.  Today there was a good-sized flock of large shorebirds along with some gulls on the east end of Ledbetter Beach, as there often is this time of year.  The flock was somewhat disturbed by a couple of beach walkers and flew up the beach to a point opposite to where I was walking on the sidewalk.  I decided to cross the beach and see what I might pick out at water's edge.  
The flock moved a bit and then suddenly took to the air with alarm calls from gulls and shorebirds ringing out all around.  I saw a that large, very dark Peregrine Falcon had flown in and was going after the shorebirds.  It made contact with a Long-billed Curlew who started struggling and screeching at the top of its lungs.  I lost sight of them below the berm for a second or two--then when the Peregrine flew back into view, it had no curlew in its talons.  It wheeled and dropped back on the sand out of sight.  I crept up carefully until I could see the Peregrine. It had landed on the beach sans any prey and was just standing there.  I watched for several minutes as gulls and shorebirds came back warily to the general area.  The Peregrine started to walk around in the sand and from the way that it moved, it appeared to have a damaged leg or talon.  After about 5 minutes it took off and turned toward the water's edge, immediately scattering the gulls and shorebirds that had returned.  It took a bead on a particular Curlew and started after it, chasing it out over the sea where I lost track of both birds.  I wondered if it was the Curlew that was struck before.  Anyway, folks might keep their eyes out for this falcon--it may need to be picked up by a certified wildlife rehabilitation agency.  Slightly fuzzy photo of Peregrine is attached.
The rest of the walk was anti-climatic.  There was a nice mixed flock of gulls and pelicans on the sandspit but itwas spooked by the appearance of a dog, so I didn't get a good tally.  In it were about 30 Black Skimmers.  At the Mission Creek outfall/Lagoon, there were no terns, but the Skimmers came in and landed there, and on the banks of the lagoon were mixed flocks of gulls and shorebirds.  The gulls were mostly Western and Heerman's with a couple of California gulls mixed in; the shorebirds were 25 Willets, 22 Long-billed Curlew, and 5 Whimbrel.  Also in the gull flock was an interesting Glaucous-winged type gull--third year bird perhaps.
On the breakwater, I found only 2 Black Turnstones feeding and 1 resting breeding-plumaged Wandering Tattler.

All,

This afternoon, there were two Lesser Yellowlegs on the slough (including
one very close to the road) and about 80-90 peeps. Also 11 Wilson's
Phalaropes. In general, Devereux gets many more birds in the afternoon.

This morning I checked the E end of El Capitan SB where there were 6 adult
Wandering Tattlers and 7 Spotted Sandpipers

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux this morning
I was one of a number of birders who had the idea to go to Devereux Slough
in Goleta this morning. I spent a couple of hours here, probably longer
than I would have had not others shown up off and on over this time. The
NEOTROPIC CORMORANT was in view much of the time, either in the dead
branches where it frequently perches, or in the channel to the south. It
appears to me this bird is getting darker on the ventral side.

Shorebird numbers were disappointing, with only about 40 peeps (about 60%
Western and 40% Least) and a few other common species. A LESSER YELLOWLEGS
dropped in briefly, south of the northern turnout, and took off to the east
somewhere. Several broods of Gadwall young were present, but only adult
Mallards, as far as I could tell. Seems to be a theme in the area this
year. Also of interest were two GREAT BLUE HERON NESTLINGS in a nest at the
top of the more southerly nesting tree on the west side of the slough. I
have not checked our data on this subject, but wouldn't be surprised if
this is the latest date we have locally for nestlings.

There were 8 or 9 night-herons hanging around, by the way, but no
Yellow-crowneds. I did not check NCOS to see if any were there.

Late yesterday I saw a continuing juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron at the half bridge. There were 7 Wilson's Phalaropes on the slough along with decent numbers of Least and Western Sandpipers.
For those of you who take the Santa Barbara News-Press or who find alternative ways to read Saturday's Bird Watch column, some news: all freelance writers have been told their articles are on hold for three months. I don't know anything more than this.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Long Canyon and Sisquoc
All:
I birded Long Canyon Road this morning.  This Long Canyon Road intersects with Cat Canyon Road in the Sisquoc area.   This area was very birdy with the majority of birds crowded around the small pond at the northern terminus of the road.  Thirty six species were identified.  Highlights were Wild Turkey with young, large numbers of California Quail with young and a Goldfinch trifecta.  I also stumbled on my first Greater Roadrunner of the year.  Checklist is here: 
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58727161

After I left Long Canyon, I headed towards Sisquoc.  At the Terracore GWP Lease entrance off Palmer Road, I spotted a large congregation of Yellow Billed Magpies.  There were 37 in the field west of Palmer Road.  While marveling at the congregation of Magpies, I noticed, not 1 but 3 Golden Eagles flying overhead.  There were two juveniles and one adult.  Checklist is here:

All,

Devereux was thick with fog when I passed by this morning. Mostly geese, ducks, herons, egrets, and black necked stilts. Neotropic still present at half-bridge. Couldn’t pull out the yellow crowned night herons though.

Sands Beach/Coal Oil Point is decently active. Black-bellied Plovers, semi-palpated Plovers, snowy plovers, western and least sandpipers, willets, one long-billed curlew. The fog has cleared so views are improving.

The wrack from last nights high tide is all the way behind the plover fence, so it is somewhat difficult to pick through those birds.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux slough water levels
Hi All:
Today Florence Sanchez and I spent some time at Devereux. The water level has receded to the point at which it should be really good from now on for seeing shorebirds on the eastern edge, as you drive along Devereux Rd. As Nick has pointed out, the fact that the slough has water during “fall” shorebird migration, which is of course now, is UNUSUAL. It hasn’t been this way for close to 10 years, and even then, this happens only rarely. So now’s our chance to actually see some shorebird habitat on the south coast, where you can get close enough to the birds to i.d. them.
Today there were Wilson’s Phalaropes being featured, but you just never know what’s going to show up. For the next 3 weeks somebody should go to Devereux every single day. Recall how it’s normally a dry patch of wasteland with a channel running through it? Not anymore. Enjoy!
Checklist here:

Birders,

We are running a group of researchers and Nat’l Park Rangers out to Santa Barbara island. Departing 11pm 8/23<x-apple-data-detectors://0>, returning approx. 6pm on 8/25<x-apple-data-detectors://1>. It will be a day and a half birding/hiking at the island then the way home we’ll head out to Osborne Bank and bird all the way back to San Pedro. There are a few spots left, email me for info.

Sightings last trip:

Western Gulls (1000+), Brown Boobies (70+), Black Storm-Petrels, Ashy Storm-Petrels, Pigeon Guillemots, Common Murres, Least Terns, Royal Terns, Elegant Terns, Sooty Shearwaters, Pink-footed Shearwaters, Buller’s Shearwaters, Black-vented Shearwaters, Brandt’s Cormorants, Double-crested Cormorants, Brown Pelicans, and a Peregrine Falcon.

Making landfall on the most remote of the Channel Islands can be difficult and not for everybody.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Cruz Trail
Today I hiked up to the 19 Oaks campground on the Santa Cruz Trail from the
Upper Oso campground.There were not a lot of birds. About half way to 19
Oaks I saw an immature Golden Eagle, and in that same area I saw many
lazuli buntings. Other highlights were 4 rufous-crowned sparrows, 3 canyon
wrens and many western bluebirds. The rest of the usual chaparral residents
were there, I did not see any warblers, empids, or vireos.
It was a great day

Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Santa Maria Valley
Dear Wes et al.,
I also noticed the earth dumping and wondered if it was being done to eliminate the wetland and discourage birders.  I'd sure like to know who trespassed into that field last winter--they may have caused more grief that they realized.  Also, I'm glad you saw the Reddish egret at the Santa Maria River mouth--I looked for it assiduously when I walked out to the estuary edge and did not find it!  Rats.  Also decided to pass up going to the sewage treatment plant because the previous report was pretty barren.  Sounds like that was a mistake too.

SB Birders,

I slowed down for the formally flooded field on Black Road where the Sandhill Crane was chilling for a while. The field had a little mud in it but no birds. And now the interesting part, they ( somebody?) has been bringing in fill dirt for over a month now. The amount of fill dirt is starting to worry me. It looks like they plan on filling in the “vernal pool” mini wetland? Or simply a great birding location. I am not clear on the number of days this situation needs too hold water to be considered a wetland or a vernal pool, or if it can be saved?

The SMSW “ Santa Maria Sewage Works” is starting to look pretty good. Here I saw 22 Greater Yellowlegs, 18 Wilson’s and 4 Red-necked Phalaropes, 8 Dowitchers and one looked to be a Long-billed. The other shore bird that is rarely seen there was a Willet, also present was 100ish Least and Western Sandpipers, oh one Yelllow-headed Blackbird.
I then checked out Jack O’Connell Park, way sucky. I then moseyed on down to the SMRE ( Santa Maria River Estuary) did not walk out to the lagoon but scoped it from a distance and counted 13 White Pelicans mixed in with the Brown Pelicans. My mini seawatch was just that, watching the ocean. But as I was leaving I scoped back over the estuary from the high point of the road and I was able to see the Reddish Egret. This was kinda cool because, I saw a Reddish Egret on 7-2-19 at Devereux, 7-17-19 at Ocean Park in Lompoc and today the 31st at SMRE, I guess the 4th time was the charm. It was pretty cool to see Reddish Egrets at three different locations within one month and they were fairly distant from each other. I am not claiming they were all the same bird, or different birds, just Reddish Egrets.

Good birding,

Subject: [sbcobirding] Santa Maria Area
I decided to check out various spots in Santa Maria today.  It was foggy and a bit misty to start but the ceiling lifted eventually and there was no wind.
My first stop was Jack O-Connell Park in Guadalupe.  The Park was quiet, but only shorebirds there were 3 Kildeer.  There is water in the old water treatment plant next door, but it didn't have any ducks or shorebirds in it, though 2 Least Sandpipers flew over.  After checking out a few ag fields, I went down to the Guadalupe  dunes and the Santa Maria River mouth.  A few ducks--Nothing of note in the river.  Least Terns were flying over the south part of the beach and estuary.
Heading up the beach, I could see there was a HUGE flock of Brown Pelicans roosting on the sand between the estuary mouth and the ocean (like 1000+ birds).  With them were 9 White Pelicans and more than 100 Heerman's gulls, with a few Western and California Gulls mixed in.  Also in the flock were 4 Caspian Terns, one of them a juvenile.  There were few shorebirds on the beach--1 Long-billed Curlew, 3 Snowy Plover outside the exclosure, and a fly-over of 2 Black-bellied Plovers.  There were 2 Bottlenose Dolphins in the surf.  After I got past the roped-off area and the pelican flock, I was able to get to the estuary mouth and see what was there.  The waterfowl were Mallards, Ruddies, and Coots, with a few Double-crested Cormorants mixed in.  The best birds were 3 Eared Grebes in breeding plumage at thte SLO County end of the estuary.  Shorebirds here were a few Black-necked Stilts and a good-sized flock of Red-necked Phalaropes.
I drove a few roads through the ag fields for a bit, looking for any flooded fields that might yield shorebirds, but had no success.  Our previously productive field near Black and Betteravia Roads had a tiny bit of water and mud at its lowest point, but no activity.  In addition, they are taking out some earth from some project at the far end of the field and dumping it near the road.  Not a good omen for winter here activity here.
My final stop was Ocean Beach Park in Lompoc.  There were at least 100 Peep at the water's edge of the far end of the blocked river mouth, but it was very hard to identify them from that distance, even with my scope cranked up.  I needed to be at least 100 yards closer, and that is not allowed at this time of year.  There definitely were a lot of Western Sandpipers--many juveniles with their rusty scapulars evident even at a distance.  I had one Least Sandpiper for sure in the mix and a possible candidate for Semi-palmated Sandpiper, but I was just a little too far away to be sure.  There were about a dozen Sanderlings there too, a few with their nice rusty breeding attire still in evidence.  In another spot, there were 6 Dowitchers feeding (sp. unknown) and an equal amount of Black-bellied Plovers.  Closer in at the edge of the reeds, I found 5 Greater-Yellowlegs.  No other large shorebirds present, and nothing of great interest swimming in the river mouth.

Subject: [sbcobirding] shorebird possibilities
All,

Devereux has dropped a fair bit and there is some mud starting to show on the E side just south of the first pull out. Most of the small shorebirds are still on the W side, but this should change over the next few days. Good chance of a Semipalmated Sandpiper showing up in the next week or two.

Area K is starting to see some usage from stilts. In years past, this typically meant usage by other shorebirds was 10-15 days away. Needless to say, I am out of town for a week starting Aug 17 ...

Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: [sbcobirding] Black Tern yesterday
I think I looked into this last year and found that these rusty buff fringes are diagnostic of juveniles and would not be shown by adults/second year birds at any stage. The SYR birds (or at least one of them) also showed fairly obscure rusty-buff fringes.

Hi Joan,
Thanks for posting this. I am at the corner of Foothill Rd X Highway 33 where I briefly have Internet.
I think you’re probably right that it was a juvenile but if your time allows take a look at some of the photos of other juveniles. Some of those have many more extensive and more extensively distributed pale fringes. If our bird was a hatchling this year, then on this date it should show fringes all over the place. That is what confused me. Mark Bright’s killer photo shows those fringes more or less restricted to the rear end of the bird. So is there another explanation for those?
Just for conversations sake, the man on the beach was trying to photograph his little daughter while she scared the birds. It felt really good that they responded.
95F here. Starting to head up to SB Potrero where I’ll meet Elihu and Steve Junak. Elihu loaned me a forest key.
Adult SwHawks were screaming when I passed by Quatal Cyn Rd. Did you know that El Peepero found and photo’d 2 fledglings yesterday? I did not see them today.
Take care till we bird again!
Mark

Hi All:
Yesterday Mark Holmgren & I did a little birding in the morning. We began at the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. Here, there was a lot of bark being dumped on various areas, most of which we were able to avoid. We walked along the north side of the lake, stopping at all the platforms. There’s very little shoreline this year, and the shallow area near the northwest corner is still almost completely covered. Our best find was a freshly fledged group of six tiny ducklings, being guarded by the adult Ruddy Duck pair to which they belonged. Also, we saw several Great-tailed Grackle adults carrying food purposefully towards the northwest corner of the Refuge to vegetation which bordered the Zoo property. Mark felt this was a breeding record.
Then we went to the base of Garden St. next to the skateboard park. If you leave the car there, walk west towards Mission Creek outfall. You need a scope, but you can set up on the berm of sand that’s nearby the bike path, & you have a great view of the place: tons of waterbirds of all kinds gathered around this little lagoon! We were amazed at the large numbers of Long-billed Curlews, Whimbrels, Willets, 33 Black Skimmers, a couple of Elegant Terns — but here you are with this great birding place right in the middle of downtown. Mark H actually shouted at a man who was scaring the birds up so he could take a photo. And….he stopped flushing the birds. That place needs some interpretive signs!
The Black Tern was a surprise, but anything could drop in there. Also, having looked at John Callender’s & Mark Bright's excellent photos, I do believe that the bird was a juvenile.

I made a quick loop around the Mission Creek outflow this morning, and a brief foray out onto the wharf, and a distant look at the harbor jetty, and I did not see any terns this AM. Reports of any positive visuals appreciated

Went to Mission Creek outfall around noon and met Mark Holmgren and Libby there looking for the Black Tern. About 12:15 saw the Black Tern flying over the shoreline of the beach towards Stearn's Wharf. The tern returned and flew low over the Mission Creek Lagoon several times even over the Mission Creek pedestrian/bike bridge. Tern then flew back out over the ocean. Several photos taken. One photo attached here.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Carpinteria this morning
I decided to check out a few spots in Carpinteria this morning.  I found nothing unsual.  The Caprnteria salt marsh at Ash Avenue was between tides and therefore had some nice exposed mud as well as a little water, which should have been good for shorebirds--but the pickings were slim.  2 Kildeer, 4 Semi-palmated Plovers, and 5 Western Sandpipers ( a couple looked like fresh juveniles--is this too early?). A Little later, 1 Long-billed Curlew flew in.  I heard a Greater Yellowlegs somewhere out on the big marsh.  Two Snowy Egrets were working the marsh a a green Heron flew in.
My next stop was Bates Road, which was very quiet.  I may have heard Chestnut-backed chickadees, but the calls were faint.  Pacific-slope Flycatcher and Western Wood-Pewee are still present.  No warblers heard or seen.
After that, I went to Lake Jocelyn, which has lots of water and therefore not a lot of marsh bird habitat around the edges.  The only things I found on the pond were a few each of Ruddy Ducks (males still in nice plumage), Coots, and Mallards.  Great-tailed Grackles are also present here, which for some reason surprises me this far from the shore.
Next I tried a sea watch from the bluffs at the end of Calle Ocho.  The fog had retreated to beyond the oil platforms, so visibility was o.k; however, there was little activity.  I was there about 45 minutes and had only 4 Brandt's Cormorants, 2 Brown Pelicans, and 2 Western Gulls fly by.  The beach below the bluffs also had little bird activity:  2 Whimbrels and 3 Heerman's Gulls.  Just as I was ready to leave, I spotted a basic-plumaged Common Loon in the surf, but lost it after it dived.
On my way home, I stopped at the Carpinteria slat marsh again.  The tide had come in.  Though there was still some exposed mud, the shorebirds were gone.  A great Blue Heron was present at that time, and a Yellow-crowned Night Heron ( a bird transitioning form juvenile to adult plumage) was working the shore.
I have been avoiding anything in Santa Barbara this week because of fiesta, but obviously I should have gone to East Beach this morning!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Birding today at end of Coronado, etc.
Hi All:
Today Libby Patten, Cathy Peterson, and I started out by checking some areas where we knew there would be “lerped” eucalyptus — getting ready for fall landbird migration. Our first stop was Winchester One Open Space, where we found only common birds and the trees were infested with lerps. Hard to tell if there’d be any leaves left by early fall. Then we crossed over the freeway & went to the Newport Dr. bridge area. From here, you can park & walk north where the trail has been cleared out considerably, then crosses over Santa Barbara Shores Dr., and another pocket park is just to the west. A rough trail continues on through the residential area and eventually ends up at Hollister Avenue. Lots of trees were pruned in here, & the whole place has been opened up; good potential for fall.
Lastly, we stopped at the Coronado seep between 11:15 am - 12:15 pm: place was jumping with birds, including possible early migrants (adult male Western Tanager) & a ton of other birds. The water in the “seep” area is plentiful, and the branches growing over it make the birds a little difficult to see, but it is super fun to just stand there & watch all of them come in. Lots of Chestnut-backed Chickadees (including at least one juvenile, if not two).

Subject: [sbcobirding] Lucy's Warbler
This morning, Betsy called my attention to a small gray warbler in our water feature. I was able to observe it several times for brief periods and based on field marks I’m comfortable calling it a Lucy’s Warbler, most likely a juvenile. The bird was a very small warbler, gray above with a dark eye on a plain face. The reduced wing bars were buffy and there was a touch of chestnut/buff in the upper tail coverts. No chestnut was observed on the crown. Underparts were off white with a buffy wash across the breast. The bird was very active and was only visible for brief periods of time although I did get some scope views. Time to start checking out fennel patches.

Subject: [sbcobirding] North Campus Open Space and Devereaux
Sunday, 7/28, 7:30-1030 am

Started at NCOS. Not much on the walk down to Devereaux. Two Say's Phoebe and a Cassin's Kingbird along the path. All were quite darkly marked. The pond near the entrance has a layer of plant growth over the surface thick enough for the Song Sparrow and Lesser Goldfinch to walk on while gleaning from the surface. Most interesting birds here were at the bridge near the top end of the drainage where I saw 5 Western Sandpiper, a very cooperative Green Heron, 6 Canada Geese, and a somewhat surprising juvenile Lark Sparrow perched in the reeds.

The first pullout at Devereaux had 7 Least Sandpiper, 15 Western Sandpiper, a couple dozen Semipalmated Plover, and a single Short-billed Dowitcher (judging by the three-note call it made while flying). The bay between the pullouts had 6 Black-necked Stilt. The second pullout had many Black-Crowned Night Heron (but no Yellow-Crowned seen here or at NCOS). Both sites had abundant Great Blue Heron, Great and Snowy Egret. A few cormorants near the second pullout but no Neotropical this morning.

Walked the beach on both sides of Coal Oil Point next. The east side had 3 Whimbrel, 3 Western Sandpipers, and 15ish Semipalmated Plover. The west side (where the Plover Reserve is found) was much birdier. Here there were 5 Willets, a single Long-billed Curlew, 2 Black Turnstone, 7 Least Sandpiper (but no Western?), 25 or so Sanderling (with a fair amount of color still in their plumage), many Snowy Plover (but no obvious recently born birds) and very many Black-bellied Plover (half of which were somewhat to completely black-bellied). One large group of these were clustered near the mouth of the slew. I looked through these carefully but could find no other similar species lurking among them. There were 6 additional Canada Gees here. No Least Terns (or any other Terns for that matter) seen this morning. A single adult Heerman's Gull flew by. Otherwise all gulls were Western.

Walked next to the dune pond next and picked up an Ash-throated Flycatcher as I neared the pond. In the pond were 21 more Canada Geese. There were also 2 adult Pied-billed Grebe herding around 6 little red-faced greeblets. There was also a pair of Nutall's Woodpecker in the dead Eucalyptus here. All sites visited this morning had lots of Swallows with Cliff the most abundant but also saw Northern Rough-winged and Barn.

Nothing else of interest,
Rob Lindsay

Subject: [sbcobirding] Saturday birds
All,

After a butterfly trip to the Cuyama Valley in the heat of the morning, I
check Ocean Beach Park and Devereux on the way home. Ocean Beach was very
disappointing shorebird wise. The thing to cheer me up were the first
juvenile Least Terns of year appearing there. Hopefully a lot more Least
Terns will be there in the next two weeks. The Neotropic Cormorant was at
Devereux along with a Western Kingbird and various common shorebirds. There
were 3 Say's Phoebes at NCOS.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Some birds N County and Tecolote Creek
Yesterday in Los Alamos, the Barn Swallows are still breeding. Possibly as
many as 5 pairs bred not far from Centennial Park this summer. The Santa
Maria Wastewater Treatment Plant had only a few Greater Yellowlegs and no
other shorebirds. The Santa Maria River Estuary had 5 Amer. White
Pelicans, 2 Red-necked Phalarope, and more than 30 Least Terns flying
around the estuary and on the beach. I did not see the Reddish Egret or
the turnstones seen by Jamie C. earlier in the day.

This morning I walked 1.8 miles in Tecolote Ck bottom. A few birds still
sang, and were presumably still involved in bringing off babies. But the
activity was greatly diminished relative to that of 30 June. I attached a
Common Ground-Dove recording to my checklist, found 4 Wilson's Warbler
locations, only 1 Warbling Vireo, 4 Yellow Warblers, and the remainder were
expected species. I've been surprised to not find Black-chinned
Hummingbird in places I usually see them.
A Red-shouldered Hawk took a crow and twice carried it into the forest with
no great difficulty.
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58497421 Tecolote Creek

Here's a quiz bird call taken from Tecolote Ck this morning for those of
you named Libby Patten. Its the 6-note descending call. The clearest
renditions are during the airplane pass over. I do not know what bird made
this call.

Congratulations to all of us, and thank you Jamie for holding the course.

Every now and then I read or reread some old posts on special birds, which is a lot of fun.

To answer Joan: The group has 848 members, but a lot of those accounts are inactive.

Happy Anniversary sbcobirders! I had a message pop up today reminding me that 20 years ago this very day this group was created. I think I owe thanks to Mike Stiles of slocobirding who at the time had an active listserve through Cal Poly in SLO, and I remember asking Mike if I could post messages about Santa Maria area birds to the group and he said (politely), "I think I would rather keep this group focused on SLO county birds." BAM! sbcobirding was born. In those early days it was hosted through eGroups, eventually swallowed up by Yahoo, later ignored by Yahoo so we moved to Groups.io. In all that time the number of subscribers has grown. I think there were only a few county groups way back when but eventually nearly all 58 counties in California had a discussion group or regional group that birders could report birds to. It was a sign of the times. The phone-in BirdBox was starting to disappear and email discussion groups were a means to get information out to a wide audience fairly quickly. While eBird has taken over the way birders obtain information today it does not support real discussion. This is why I feel email groups still serve a purpose. A group like this is only as good as its members and the topics being discussed so thanks go to all of you for your participation all these years, sharing your sightings and generating some really meaningful discussion about birding in this wonderful county.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Missing Black Skimmer seen in Humboldt County
Hi, Anyone wondering where have all the Skimmers Gone?
I saw a report today from NWCALBIRD bird list where Rob Fowler is following a Black Skimmer at Clam Beach, just north of Humboldt Bay and <100 miles from Oregon, 600 miles north.
That is pretty impressive distance and it had to pass by so many habitats and miles of great beaches to get there,
Now maybe that is not unusual, but I thought it interesting...now where did the rest of them get off to?
All About Birds/Cornell has a range map that stops at Point Conception.
All About also has this quote about these so favorite creatures:
"

* Possibly the best description of the Black Skimmer's bounding, head-down foraging style came from the great seabird biologist R. C. Murphy in 1936. He said they look like “ *unworldly… aerial beagles hot on the scent of aerial rabbits."*

Boy howdy to that!
cheers
Ken Hoesterey

Subject: [sbcobirding] SM River Estuary Reddish Egret
A Reddish Egret continues at Santa Maria River mouth this morning. This is
probably a continuing bird first reported a week ago on July 18th.
Shorebirds were sparse and there really isn't much habitat unless they feel
like working the edge, but five Black Turnstones flying over the estuary
was a bit of a surprise. I also spotted a banded Brown Pelican with a blue
band on its left leg #A10 that I will look into.

Libby,

This is the first year ever that I have found family parties of CB Chickadees along the south coast (Refugio and Patterson Mitigation Area) so I would agree they seem to having a good year. That’s an amazing count from Coronado and it seems certain they must have bred there as well. I have never seen more than 2-3 previously and no evidence of successful breeding. I wonder if the lusher conditions really boosted breeding success this year.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] Shoveler at Atascadero Creek

Walked along the creek yesterday with Cathy Peterson between Ward and Patterson. The most unexpected bird was a male Northern Shoveler in eclipse plumage in the creek channel about 50 yards east of the dam. (There are areas now along the creek where the vegetation has been cleaned out enough so you can peer down into the creek more easily.) According to Lehman’s BOSBC, it’s exceedingly rare to see NOSH in June and July. We also had an Ash-throated Flycatcher and good numbers of Black-headed Grosbeak and Hooded Oriole. I usually find a few Chestnut-backed Chickadee here, but heard only one this time. In general, though, been seeing much higher numbers of CBCH this season in locations where they’ve typically been (e.g. near Coronado seep). Seems like a bumper crop year for these guys.

Subject: [sbcobirding] American Cetacean Society trip on the Condor Express tomorrow...Spaces Available!
Hi all
There are still spaces available on the American Cetacean Society's (ACS) annual whale watching trip on the Condor Express tomorrow. We leave from the Santa Barbara Harbor at 8 am and return at 4 pm. There has been a lot of surface feeding activity from humpbacks over the last week in the Santa Barbara Channel so the whale watching should be exciting. In addition, I will be on board as the bird naturalist so unlike most whale watching trips, we will be calling out birds all day and looking for pelagic species. There are often numbers of birds feeding where the whales are so we could see some interesting things. A pelagic trip out of Ventura a few weeks ago had a variety of alcids, shearwaters, storm-petrels, and other species in the waters around the islands. Details for tomorrow's trip can be found at the following link where you can also buy a ticket directly.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-acsla-summertime-whale-watching-adventure-tickets-61964126370
I go on this trip every year and it is a lot of fun. Because it is sponsored by the ACS, there will be an impressive cadre of marine mammal experts on board. In addition, unlike most pelagic trips where we expect you to starve all day, this trip includes a bountiful continental breakfast on board.

Hope to see you out there...
Dave PerekstaVentura

Subject: [sbcobirding] Shoveler at Atascadero Creek
Walked along the creek yesterday with Cathy Peterson between Ward and Patterson. The most unexpected bird was a male Northern Shoveler in eclipse plumage in the creek channel about 50 yards east of the dam. (There are areas now along the creek where the vegetation has been cleaned out enough so you can peer down into the creek more easily.) According to Lehman’s BOSBC, it’s exceedingly rare to see NOSH in June and July.  We also had an Ash-throated Flycatcher and good numbers of Black-headed Grosbeak and Hooded Oriole. I usually find a few Chestnut-backed Chickadee here, but heard only one this time. In general, though, been seeing much higher numbers of CBCH this season in locations where they’ve typically been (e.g. near Coronado seep).  Seems like a bumper crop year for these guys.

Congratulations to all of us, and thank you Jamie for holding the course.

Every now and then I read or reread some old posts on special birds, which
is a lot of fun.

To answer Joan: The group has 848 members, but a lot of those accounts are
inactive.

Hooray for Jamie Chavez! And if it was Mike Stiles who helped you come to that decision, that’s great.
I think our county group is invaluable, and I am often disappointed that more folks don’t take the time to post sightings or bring up a new birding location or comment about recent sightings.
Mark Holmgren is the best, because he gives you a great overview of his sightings, then links them to eBird. Thanks heaps, Mark.
And Jamie, you are golden! Thank you, thank you from all of us!
Can you give us a head count of how many are in the groups.io for our county now? I don’t have any idea!

Subject: [sbcobirding] Juncal Camp and Jameson Reservoir
My bike rode me from Romero Saddle down to Juncal Campground on the Santa
Ynez River, then upstream to Jameson Reservoir.


At Juncal Campground there was continuing breeding activity, as evidenced
by birds still singing and feeding fledglings.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58452293



I needed more time at Jameson Res so the checklist linked was not as
thorough as it should have been.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58452724



Some new information:

A “couple” of adult *Eared Grebes *were together on Jameson Res. It’s
reasonable to assume that they summered here. Breeding status is not
clear. It’s in an unlikely location for this species.
[image: IMG_1894 Eared Grebes Juncal crop.jpg]

At least 4 *Great-tailed Grackles *were in the marshy area at the east end
of Jameson Reservoir. This would be an extension upstream of their known
distribution in the Santa Ynez Valley.

A female *Green Heron *was on the dam.


[image: IMG_1901 Green Heron crop.jpg]


I found breeding American Coot and Pied-billed Grebe. I was a bit
surprised to not see Spotted Sandpiper or any swallows. This area deserves
regular coverage.

All,

i would go as far to say that Hairy is about as common as Downy in West

multiple spots this year.

Also there were 32 semipalmated plovers roosting in the slough mouth and 14 sanderlings foraging along the tideline. In the slough itself I saw a few least and western sandpipers and a few mallards. One had a brood of six older ducklings.


Good birding,

Subject: [sbcobirding] 20 Year Anniversary Today
Happy Anniversary sbcobirders! I had a message pop up today reminding me
that 20 years ago this very day this group was created. I think I owe
thanks to Mike Stiles of slocobirding who at the time had an active
listserve through Cal Poly in SLO, and I remember asking Mike if I could
post messages about Santa Maria area birds to the group and he said
(politely), "I think I would rather keep this group focused on SLO county
birds." BAM! sbcobirding was born. In those early days it was hosted
through eGroups, eventually swallowed up by Yahoo, later ignored by Yahoo
so we moved to Groups.io. In all that time the number of subscribers has
grown. I think there were only a few county groups way back when but
eventually nearly all 58 counties in California had a discussion group or
regional group that birders could report birds to. It was a sign of the
times. The phone-in BirdBox was starting to disappear and email discussion
groups were a means to get information out to a wide audience fairly
quickly. While eBird has taken over the way birders obtain information
today it does not support real discussion. This is why I feel email groups
still serve a purpose. A group like this is only as good as its members and
the topics being discussed so thanks go to all of you for your
participation all these years, sharing your sightings and generating some
really meaningful discussion about birding in this wonderful county.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Probable Hairy Woodpecker at Devereux Slough
Hi Santa Barbara Birders.
This is my first post to this list serve. Please forgive the late post.
 I surveyed Coal Oil Point. Last Tuesday July 23rd. I saw the juvenile yellow crowned night herons that Mark and the others posted about at Devereux Slough. I went up the pond trail and saw several raptors including two juvenile white tailed kites and a red tailed hawk. I saw what appears to be a hairy woodpecker. It was foraging in the oaks near the camera. It then moved to the snag of dead trees close to the pond itself. I attached a picture to verify it's identification. I also saw a Downy's wood pecker and two Nuttall's woodpeckers and several acorn woodpeckers in various areas of the reserve. I saw several oak titmouse in several areas of the reserve as well
I surveyed sands beach and saw the nesting snowy plovers. I saw several of the snowy plovers that were released by the Santa Barbara zoo last Thursday (July18th). I also saw 150 or so black bellied plovers roosting in the slough mouth. Several of these birds were retaining their full breeding plumage. Also there were 32 semipalmated plovers roosting in the slough mouth and 14 sanderlings foraging along the tideline. In the slough itself I saw a few least and western sandpipers and a few mallards. One had a brood of six older ducklings.

Good birding,

All,

The 2 juv YC Night-Herons continued. There was a decent smattering of shorebirds. The slough seems to be dropping faster than I would like, but I think the first week of August will be good in the bay just south of the first pull-out.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Kinevan Rd./West Camino Cielo
7/25/20, 7-9 am

Walked Kinevan Rd. from the junction with W. Camino Cielo to the U-turn bridge. Quite a few birds but little observed diversity. Pacific-slope Flycatchers and Dark-eyed Juncos were abundant. Also saw Black Phoebe (3), Purple Finch (2), and House Wren (1). I heard many more birds than I saw so diversity is probably greater than I'm reporting.

Drove West Camino Cielo to the end of pavement next making several brief stops en route. Best birds were two pair of Common Raven (1/2 mile apart) a ways beyond the residential portion of the road. Also saw a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Otherwise, only common, expected species (list below).

Mourning Dove (1)
California Quail (group of 6, 4 young)
California Towhee (3)
Spotted Towhee (several seen or calling)
California Scrub Jay (abundant)
Wrentit (very abundant)
Dark-eyed Junco (lots in residential area)
2 Hummingbird fly-bys
Downy Woodpecker (1)

That's all

Subject: [sbcobirding] Feeder Birds
Tuesday we had a nice Yellow Warbler for a bit in the back yard, Wednesday evening a Wilson's Warbler.  The real shock was seeing a Baltimore Oriole at the jelly feeder Wednesday afternoon.  Alas, the camera was handy and by the time it was retrieved, the bird had flown.  Despite keeping an open eye the rest of the evening, it did not come back.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux Birding July 24
I walked out to sands beach at low tide this morning hoping for a good show of shorebirds, but that was not the case today.  The only species I found on the beaches was Black-bellied Plover, a few still in good breeding plumage. I didn't pick up any shorebirds to speak of in the main estuary and the Neo Corm was not on his usual roost. The bog show was the Heron family.  The water level is dropping and the herons move in to catch prey in shallow waters.  I counted 15 Snowy Egrets, 5 Great Egrets, and 3 Great Blue Herons in one location.  There were two Black-crowned Night herons near the bridge (adults) but no juvenile night herons of either species.
I then decided to walk out to the dune pond.  Crossing the road between Devereux and NCOS, I spotted two Whimbrel in the Slough.  Continuing on down the path on the west side of the estuary, I had a juvenile White-tailed Kite in a tree and an Ash-throated Flycatcher in the brush.  The Dune pond itself did not have a lot of activity,  The exception was a large flock of Cliff Swallows that would fly into the tules and then fly out again en masse.  There were Red-winged Blackbirds present--I could not pull out a female Yellow-headed Blackbird like Mark found yesterday.   The only waterfowl I found were a couple of Coots, a Pied-billed Grebe, and a Mallard.  
The bird of interest here was a WESTERN Kingbird.  I spotted it in a dead tree next to the pond, from which it would fly out and catch big black insects from the pond's edge.  But then things got even more interesting.  I looked at something else for a while and when I looked back at the tree, I saw a Western Kingbird again, only this one looked smaller with a shorter bill.  While I watched, the Kingbird I saw earlier flew in with another black bug in its beak, which it fed to the now-screaming youngster.  Apparently we had nesting in the area, always a bit unusual in the coastal zone for this species.  I watched them for a long time to be sure there was just one fledgling, not two, and I think there was only one.
Finally, walking back along the path, I saw a good-sized flock of small shorebirds near the western shore of the estuary where there had been none on the way out.  A scan of the flock turned up Semi-palmated Plovers, Kildeer, Western Sandpipers, and a Spotted Sandpiper.  There were more birds a little farther out, but I did not have my scope.
The water level in the dune pond is too high for shorebirds right now, but it may drop as summer proceeds.
I stopped at Goleta Sanitary District, but found the patch of mud I've been watching in the north pond is now mostly underwater, so there was nothing of interest there.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Shore birds Mission Creek Outflow 7/23 and YCNH Devereux 7/22
Yesterday evening I made my first summertime visit to the now quite
attractive channel stretching from about Stearns wharf to the end of Garden
st. Just below parking lot I first saw a fairly large group of gulls
evenly divided between Western and Heermann's. Walking west I found at
least a dozen Whimbrels and one Willet flew by - distinguished by its
striking wing pattern. Also a Marble Godwit with its long downcurved
two-tone bill. Lastly I came upon a group of Black Skimmers, of which I was
able to capture one successful catch with my camera. It's always a joy for
me to watch these very acrobatic foragers.

The day before (7/22) I made a brief stop at Deveruex just before 2PM.
Parking at the "bridge to nowhere" I did not observe a Neotropic - but as I
was watching its usual spot an Osprey flew in, perched briefly and flew off
again toward the ocean. Besides the adult BCNHs and Snowy Egrets I saw
the Juvenile YCNH that appears in Thomas Turner's ebird post for 7/23. It
was in the exact same location as his photo. I did not take a photo of
this bird, mistaking it at first for a BCNH juvenile. I have not been out
to NCOS so I have no idea if it is the same bird that others saw there.
I've had trouble with Flickr lately but I did post a Skimmer and Osprey
photo there today. https://www.flickr.com/photos/digolov/

Subject: [sbcobirding] Request: Filling in historic eBird records for Santa Barbara county
As of recently, the eBird record of Santa Barbara County lists all bird
species that have been observed in our county. Depending on who's doing the
counting that's somewhere between 486 and 509 birds. Here's the eBird list
in reverse chronologic order:
https://ebird.org/region/US-CA-083?yr=all

What's still missing, though, are various historic records of various
notable birds. As an example, the earliest eBird record for Northern
Goshawk is 28 June 2009, while Lehman's "The Birds of Santa Barbara County,
California" mentions several earlier records starting in the 70s (see
http://www.sbcobirding.com/lehmanbosbc.html). It would be great if we could
fill in these kinds of gaps in the records of eBird. Ideally we would end
up with an eBird record that matches the record of Lehman.

*So, if you have an eBird account and you notice that you have a historic
sighting that is missing, please go ahead and add it. *

When doing so, please note:

- Only add birds that you saw yourself, don't add sightings by others.
For that we have the dedicated eBird account "SBA County Historical
Records".
- Incomplete lists are perfectly acceptable, but please add species
comments for anything out of the ordinary so reviewers will validate your
checklist.

If you have any questions about this, please post them to this group.

Thanks
Wim

Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] YBNH at Devereux
There is an unwritten rule with most birding listserves (sometimes an
actual written rule) where the use of the bird-banders 4-letter
abbreviation code is forbidden. Or at the very least, only after the full
name is used first. This subject hasn't been discussed here in a very long
time but I agree with Rob that the use of these four-letter codes should
only come after the full name has been used in the message and probably not
in the subject line of the message at all. I get that is is much easier to
type Northern Rough-winged Swallow in just four letters. Occasionally these
codes aren't even used correctly which only adds to the confusion.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Devereux Slough YCN Herons
There are 2 juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Herons at the half-bridge at Devereux Slough. Photos of those and of one Black-crowned Night-Heron are attached.
Also present on this Slough and beach survey with Jessica Nielsen were Wandering Tattler just below Coal Oil Point in the foggy dawn. At the Dune Pond, which was quite birdy, was a Yellow-headed Blackbird female.

You never know unless the bird is spelled out properly. There are only 23 birds that start with YB, ( B= billed, Bellied, breasted, browed, Black, barred, and backed to mention a few) and if the B is a mistake? Who’s to know if any of the other letter are a typo?

Also, “ wondering how long that would take to happen” could mean a long over due bird.

Tom is a great birder, I do not want to miss anything good he finds.

Hi, on friday we went there in the late afternoon and there were scads of Brown Pelicans, well over 100, resting on the western side of the landlocked estuary...with flights still coming in.Three Great Egrets, (no scope) but also seen were Ruddies with diving babies, a GBH, Mallards, a few Cormorants. Something alerted the Pelicans and they all took off and relanded, quite a sight to see.Ken Hoesterey

Subject: [sbcobirding] Goleta birds
Sorry for the late post. This afternoon, Sunday, I heard a Least Bittern
call from the Mesa Ditch, the side channel below the bluff that overlooks
Basin K of Goleta Slough. This was toward the east end of the basin. The
bird was pretty close to where I was standing, and it gave the loud,
scratchy “ick-ick-ick” call they sometimes give, and not the soft chuckling
sounds you also hear from them.

Also present was a female teal that looked to be a Blue-winged with nine
small ducklings, closer to the west end of the basin.

Shorebird variety had picked up slightly at Devereux, with Semipalmated
Plovers, Greater Yellowlegs, and Wilson’s Phalaropes joining the Western
and smaller numbers of Least Sandpipers.

One addition to Nick’s notes about Ocean Park: on Saturday, one Redhead was
near the mouth.

All,

Wes reminded me that he also photographed a Reddish Egret at Ocean Park on
Wednesday the 17th which I had forgotten about. Perhaps his bird is one of
the same ones found along the north coast around the same time period.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Ocean Beach Park
All,

Ken, Wes, and I birded the Santa Ynez River mouth Sunday morning. There
were a decent number of shorebirds around with 18 G. Yellowlegs and 36 SB
Dowitchers and a few Wilson's and Red-necked Phalaropes. Just 3 Least Terns
so far but hopefully families will start appearing soon. 3 Northern
Harriers and a family of Ruddy Ducks were also present. Both Clark's and
Western Grebes are now nesting and there were 6 Eared Grebes upriver.

Mark's Reddish Egret at Cachuma Lake represents the third Reddish Egret
sighting just this week. All at different locations in the county. One was
at the Santa Maria River mouth on July I8, one the following day July 19 at
Jalama Beach creek mouth, and Mark's bird today at Cachuma. I haven't
looked at all the pictures in the eBird lists in great detail to see if
maybe the same bird might have been involved which might include the
Devereux/Mission Creek sightings earlier this month. A very quick look
makes me think at least the three this week are all different birds.

This morning, there was a Pied-billed Grebe at Alice Keck. This is the first time I have seen one here. Interesting because I never really think about these birds as moving around much.

Other birds of note are Black-crowned Night-Heron and Yellow Warbler daily at Alice Keck. Also Peregrine Falcon flyover at my house today and a day last week.
