Today, 20 SEP 2017, at 1220, at the Cabrillo National Monument cave, I counted at least 10 chocolate brown juvenile Heerman's Gulls. The most I have seen in one place in a long long time.

Also, the 5 Black Oystercatchers continue, and I counted at least 34 Black Turnstones down there, but there were probably several more.

I was there, early and late, but I had a negative result and I noticed nobody else posted anything. Maybe I should have posted something anyway. Here are my notes in the eBird posts (19 SEP 2017):
First try (this was at 0615):"Had to run off to work just as the light and activity improved. Not sure if the Lucy's was still present, but a few unidentified warblers, and one rather tiny warbler, were flitting about, tree to tree, in the gloom. I was here from dark and first morning chorus calls until 0640. Sunrise at 0635, but overcast, so never had a ray of sunlight."
Second try (this was at 1230):"THEY MOWED! The whole park. Scared everything out. This morning the grass was long and lush, wet with dew. Nothing but a few junk birds in the park now. And wind, to boot."

Dawn dawned lovely this Tuesday morning at the
Borrego Springs water treatment plant settling ponds.


Birded several hours with Terry Hurst, Nancy Christensen,
Mel Senac and Retired State Park Ranger and author
of Birds of Anza Borrego Desert State Park, Bob Thriault.


The highlight of the morning was a female-type Bobolink
hiding in the north settling pond. Nancy and Mel obtained
great photos while I fumbled with my camera.


A fun morning of 27 species featuring at least two--
most probably four or five--Le Conte's Thrashers,
Vesper Sparrow, Vaux's Swift, Brewers Sparrow,
Bell's Sparrow (canescens), Savannah Sparrows and Lazuli Buntings.

Went to the Cove on Sunday with Jane Mygatt and Patti Koger, from 7:30-10:30.

Choppy seas, no wind and poor light made for less than ideal conditions.


Birds were

2 distant boobies; large, dark, but too far away for identification

about 400 black-vented shearwaters, 2 pink-foots; no other tubenoses

9 parasitic, 2 pomarine and one beautiful juvenile long-tailed jaeger

3 common loons


Went today by myself form 8:15-10:00; ocean was calm, light was grey, no wind


2 distant boobies; large, dark, but too far away for identification

about 750 or more black-vented shearwaters, but moving back and forth so 750 is the conservative number; there could have been 1200 or even substantially more

3 pink-foots; no other tubenoses

1 parasitic jaeger


It was the non-birds that were the highlight of the morning:

several flying fish in the kelp bed

a young humpback whale breaching every 10 seconds for over an hour, starting out less than 1/4 mile off Pt. La Jolla but gradually heading out to the west

a Bryde™s whale, the first I™ve ever seen from my bench

and, as expected, no thresher sharks.

Hi,
Yesterday, Saturday, at noon, at the far north end of 13th street in imperial beach, I had a light phase parasitic jaeger flying South following 13th street... About 1.5 miles inland!
Right now (11:00AM) at the bay side of cabrillo ntl. Monument near the point, long looks at juvenile zone tailed hawk.

Keith and I went to Shelter Island (on Point Loma) this morning,
Sept. 17, to look for the Black Tern reported by Storm Jensen on eBird
Sept. 11 and 16. We spotted it very quickly, around 9AM, flying low
over the water, back and forth in the area between the fishing pier and
the boat launch ramp (now a construction site). Clearly a small, dark
gray tern with wings shorter and more compact than the nearby Forster's.
The face and neck were mostly white, and the underside was light. I
could not see enough detail to distinguish juvenile from nonbreeding
adult, though Keith, whose eyes are better than mine, said the dark
patch along the side, visible when the wing is up, was very dark. The
bird did not dive; it seemed to pick a little from the surface of the
water as it flew, but most of the time it was just flying. We watched
it for about a half-hour, then saw it again briefly at about 10:15. (We
also met Storm, who walks on Shelter Island regularly.)

SDFO Event “ September
19, 2017 at 6:00 pmis the next meeting of San Diego Field Ornithologists.




Program: Program:
Justyn Stahl will present Colombia: Jewels of the Andes and More. With over 1,900 bird species recorded, Colombia
is the most biodiverse country in the world. A seemingly endless variety of
habitats hosted by three branches of the Andes, inter-Andean valleys, the
Amazon, the Caribbean, the Pacific Choc, and the Santa Marta mountains (home
to 36 endemics alone) combine to create dramatic landscapes that host an
incredibly diverse array of bird families, including antbirds, tanagers, and
nearly 150 species of hummingbirds. Following a recent ceasefire in a guerrilla
war that began in the 1960s, Colombia has become an increasingly popular bird
watching destination. Areas that were long off-limits are now reopening to
tourists and researchers, which means new species are being discovered, lost
species are being refound, and species unknown to occur in the outskirts of
Colombia are being added to the ever-growing country list each year. Justyn
Stahl has made four trips to Colombia since 2012. In addition to sharing photos
of memorable birds and scenery, Justyn will also provide some background
information on Colombian politics and conservation.


For nearly 10 years,
Justyn has been involved with the recovery effort of the San Clemente
Loggerhead Shrike, an endangered island endemic, as a Project Manager at the
Institute for Wildlife Studies. Working year round on San Clemente Island also
affords time to catch migration in Los Angeles County, which has yielded some
spectacular finds over the years, including California™s first Bluethroat and
L.A.™s first Smith™s Longspur. His time off (aside from an annual international
trip) is typically spent in San Diego, where he serves as Vice
President/Program Chair for SDFO and a frequent leader on the San Diego pelagic
trips. He embarrassingly still needs Gambel™s Quail for San Diego County.



PLEASE NOTE: The
October meeting will be held on MONDAY October 16 due to scheduling conflicts.

Institute for Wildlife Studies. Working year round on San Clemente Island also
affords time to catch migration in Los Angeles County, which has yielded some
spectacular finds over the years, including California™s first Bluethroat and
L.A.™s first Smith™s Longspur. His time off (aside from an annual international
trip) is typically spent in San Diego, where he serves as Vice
President/Program Chair for SDFO and a frequent leader on the San Diego pelagic
trips. He embarrassingly still needs Gambel™s Quail for San Diego County.



PLEASE NOTE: The
October meeting will be held on MONDAY October 16 due to scheduling conflicts.

Subject: La Jolla Cove, Sep 16: pretty much adults only--2 kinds of boobies

I spent a couple hours at the Cove today, from 11-1 and from 4:30-5:30, trying out a Swarovski 95mm scope I™ve been loaned, an amazing piece of equipment.


This morning there were about 50 fishing boats of various sizes south of the art museum, which is where I positioned myself.

The sea surface was calm and the light clear.

Almost the first birds I saw was a southbound flock of 24 common terns, all of them adults. Common tern was the common tern of the morning.

[Okay grammarians, you try to rectify the verb agreement between the plural birds and the singular flock.]


3 common loons”the common loon of the day”all in alternate plumage, flew by a few minutes later.

They were followed by an adult female brown booby.


There was a feeding frenzy of shearwaters about a mile offshore.

About 300“400 back-vented shearwaters, 3“4 pink-footed shearwaters, 1 sooty shearwater.

2 Buller™s shearwaters streamed by abut 1/2 mile offshore.


5 Cassin™s auklets.

About 250 phalaropes in a steady rivulet south; all the ones I could see well were red-necked.

2 least storm-petrels were the only storm-petrels of the morning.


A single adult California gull and a single adult Sabine™s gull were the only non-Western/non-Heermann™s gulls.

3 parasitic jaegers, all light-morph adults.


Went back this afternoon, again near the museum; most of the boats were gone, and so were the birds. Glare made it impossible to see anything more than a mile offshore.

So near shore:

1 adult parasitic jaeger.

4 black-vented and 2 pink-footed shearwaters.

Trickles of phalaropes.


And then at 4:55, a brown-tailed brown-morph adult [or juvenile or subadult] red-footed booby flew south right over the middle of the kelp bed [so 1/3 of a mile from shore]. The head appeared slightly paler than the body, so I™m going for subadult or adult.

All-dark underwings darker than body; small size and slender-bodied; narrow wings and buoyant flight; long, narrow tail with extended pointed central rectrices [so the tail looks like that of a long-tailed jaeger] were other diagnostic marks I noted.


Okay, there were other boobies around, walking on the sidewalk, and though they were mostly in adult plumage, they were behaving like juveniles.


No thresher sharks.

Subject: Swainson's Hawk & Baird's Sandpiper at San Elijo Lagoon : 16SEP2017
Date: Sat Sep 16 2017 21:06 pm
From: SanDiegoRegionBirding-noreply AT yahoogroups.com
 
I observed a BAIRD'S SANDPIPER and a SWAINSON'S HAWK this afternoon around
3pm, 16SEP2017, at San Elijo lagoon about 3/8 of a mile east of Rios Avenue.
The sandpiper was foraging on the low tide mudflats, just north of bench and
stayed a long time feeding. I saw another Baird's 3 weeks ago at this exact
location but it was a different individual. This bird has a yellow patch at
base of bill (seen in photos) when viewed from left side. The earlier bird
did not have this mark. The hawk suddenly appeared next to a TUVU moving
west. It made a loop and then headed due east, circling and gaining
elevation as it disappeared from sight. I was able to get good photos of
both birds and they are included in following e-bird report.

Hi all,
Today at about 12:30 there was a female Vermilion Flycatcher at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, at the eastern fence just south of the eucalyptus grove, near grave marker 0 117.
Other nice birds: Olive-sided Flycatcher, beyond the fence, north of the eucalyptus grove, scattered Vaux's and White-throated Swifts, a Peregrine Falcon, among others.

Subject: LeConte's Thrashers at Borrego Springs WTP
Date: Thu Sep 14 2017 16:21 pm
From: SanDiegoRegionBirding-noreply AT yahoogroups.com
 
Today (Sept 14) I visited the settling ponds in Borrego Springs where I
encountered the LeConte's Thrashers again. This is my 4th visit there this
summer, and my 4th viewing of the thrashers. During the previous 3 visits I
located the birds by hearing them call, then going that direction. On those
three visits the birds I saw were east of the elevated dike/road which is
east of the ponds. Today I stumbled over thrashers near my car, SOUTH of the
ponds. Today 2 thrashers were foraging together, never separated by more
than 15 feet. I had them in view for about 15 minutes, and when I left they
were still running around on the ground. It was very windy, so sound was not
a good clue, though I did hear the birds call when the wind stopped for a
bit.

I was tempted to go look around east of the dike/road to see if I could find
other thrashers there. I admit to being curious about this being different
sets of birds. The birds to the east have been widely separated (1/4 mile or
more); have been located when the birds perched up and called continuously
for a minute or more, giving me time to scan the bush tops. Bob T's sighting
involved 2 birds in the same brush, also very near the settling ponds. The
behaviors are different enough to make me curious.

By the way, thrashers were not my target birds, but I was happy to see them.
I'm trying to check various spots on a weekly basis and the settling ponds
are one of my stops. No exciting migrants found today.



If you are planning to find these birds, listen to the calls before you go:

Hi Bob, by now you probably know I wasn't really questioning your sightings or Bob's..just slipped my mind and of course remembered these reportd when brought to my attention. Maybe I erased them from my brain because at the time I groaned a bit because it now complicates the thrasher sightings here and if this part of the Mesquite Bosque or sink is becoming Le Conte habitat, that means it also complicates 'Sage type' Sparrow sightings as well!

Hello / Yes, as Bob Miller says, Le Conte's Thrashers are seen here occasionally, and this August-September it seems to be the only thrasher at WTP. I reported the bird on 8-13-2017, but on 8-16 obtained a better photo and gave better details about exactly where the birds were found - unfortunately the 8-16 report did not show up on the eBird "overview" page, but was kind of lost in the "recent visits" column on the right of the page. The link above is for the sole purpose of showing off my best LeConte's image Bob Theriault / Borrego Springs.

I see a report on eBird for a 'continuing bird' LeContes thrasher at the Borrego WTP. The report has little detail and I can't find any more "continuing" info. Does anyone have further details????

Hi Justyn,

I can't post to the group, (tech problem ), but wanted to let you know Steve and I have had 2 individual Swainson's Hawks flying over TRV in the past hour, since 12:20 pm, 9/13/2017.The first one was being mobbed by crows at Saturn and Coronado, we couldn't park fast enough for a pic. The other one was at the west end of Sunset, about 30 min later.

Subject: Black-and-White Warbler, Pt Loma 9/13/17
Date: Wed Sep 13 2017 17:36 pm
From: SanDiegoRegionBirding-noreply AT yahoogroups.com
 
While I sat quietly with binns on my gazebo this afternoon, an adult
male Black-and-White Warbler treated me to a nearly half-hour show as it
picked worms off the trunk and lower branches of our Chinese Elm tree.
It seemed unaware of me and was only 10-20' away most of the time. A
bright, sharp bird with no hint of yellow wash, it crept along over and
under branches, giving me views of details from every angle (heavy black
streaking on sides, black cheek, white eye ring, a small spot of black
on the otherwise white throat, black markings on undertail coverts,
white undertail edged with black, black and white stripes on top of
head, etc.). What a delight!
A Pacific-slope Flycatcher was under the tree the whole time also.

Something potentially of interest to local birders and nature watchers.

The Art and Science of Wildlife Tracking
October13 & 14, 2017


Become a nature detective! Wildlife
trackers piece together clues left behind in the environment to gain a
richer picture of the variety of animals using a habitat and read the
story of their behavior. We™ll evaluate tracks and signs to determine
who™s been there and what they™ve been doing.

This course will include an evening
in-class session, paired with a morning field day practicing our skills
out on the trail at Border Field State Park. At the workshop, you™ll
become familiar with common local wildlife species, learn basic track
and sign identification, avoid the pitfalls of perception, learn how to
distinguish between mountain lion and domestic dog tracks (which are
confused more often than not), and more.

This class will be taught by SDAS
Education Associate/Volunteer Manager, Jill Cooper. Jill is a trained
biologist who has been tracking wildlife for more than ten years.

Subject: Please date emails

Hey everybody,

There seems to be a bit of lag on emails occasionally with Yahoo (the
hosting company for SDRB). I noticed this issue with emails I was sending
last week, in addition to a glut of emails that just came through late last
night/this morning. For that reason, it is helpful (I'd argue necessary) to
include the DATE in your email. If you report a rare bird and say "today"
or "this morning" and it gets hung up for a few days or worse, people are
going to get word of it well after the fact and assume you actually mean
the day the email was received. Also, it's common courtesy to sign your
emails with a full name.

Best,
Justyn Stahl

Sorry, I didn't realize there was more than one community garden...

Painted Bunting:

I observed the bird as I walked into the Tijuana River Valley community gardens (Hollister Ave/Sunset Ave, San Diego) this morning (0645 hours/09-12-17) through the south entrance from Hollister Ave. The bird was on the south fence of site #49 forging for about 5 minutes before it took of south across the field. I stayed for another hour and did not seen the bird in the garden.

We had a LeConte's Thrasher during the birding festival on 3/4/2016.  Seen
at Old Springs Open Space Reserve near Borrego Springs. My notes say "We
waited almost an hour near a nest before it came out of cover. Running fast
on the ground with tail up, very cute." I realize "cute" is not a
diagnostic mark, but life lists are for fun anyway, right? I've forgotten
who the leader was, but the markings and behavior were correct, and the
leader was a well-respected desert expert. The birding festival list
indicates it was not seen in 2017 at the festival.

Second attempt...


>
> At around 1:20 this afternoon (Sep 4th) we had amazing views of both the male and female Frigatebirds from the southwest end of Shelter Island. The pair soared the length of Point Loma twice while we watched them. When we left, two other birders were still watching them.
>
> We then continued on to the TRV community gardens. The continuing female type Painted Bunting is still present and hanging around roughly the same area.
> We found it at around 2:30pm. The bird flew from roughly the center of gardens and landed somewhere in the willows between the community gardens and butterfly gardens. It did not re-emerge while we were there, but we heard it's chip note call later.

I watched the front and back yard all eve, but nothing. There is a nice Bottle brush in my neighbors yard but nothing unusual that I can see. Headed to bed for the night as I need to open tomorrow at around 4:30 am but again, if anyone wants to sit in front of the house, write me offline and I'll send you the address in e-mail in the morning, well before sunset. As mentioned in my earlier e-mail, I got a pretty vague description of a Hummer that most sounded like a Broad-billed to me but all I have seen is Allen's, Ann's and 1 female Black-chinned. This lady isn't a birder and could not give me any of the "finer" details of the bird.

I was out walking the dog this evening and a neighbor said they were by our yard today and they saw a beautiful Hummingbird today. Blue throat, blue and green on the front, and green on the back, is how it was described to me. I have not seen it myself, but will keep an eye out. If anyone wants to watch our front yard tomorrow, write me and I'll shoot you the address. I will keep watching this evening and will post again if I actually see it. I do not have any other details to share, they are not actual birders. She said that there was a lot of "Blue" on it. Even though we have two feeders out front, the bird came to an Iochroma by the front path.

With respect, location, time, and date are helpful. For those that are just tuning in, they may not  know which community garden. Was this yesterday, or today? Was it earlier or just now and the bird is still present?

(This is called "the curse of knowledge," and like everyone else, I make this mistake. But it's happened a few times recently on this list serve and if nobody else will point it out, I'll but in and do it, no offense. It happens, for example, when people act on buried email strings, or when they get info from a non-general group network and act on it, and then post follow-up to this list serve and inadvertently leave out details that only the original select number of folks had access to and would of course know. For those just tuning in, or those that don't have access to other networks, time, date, location are important.)

I am trying to do better myself and emulate postings by the likes of Gary and Paul (if I may drop a couple names). They are prime examples and good go-bys.

Thanks for posting though. A lot of people very interested in that male now, and you grabbed a few photos even, yay! You may be the first, for this target.

Happy birding TooFly,

Thanks for clearing that up, Nancy.  I must admit that a large portion of the confusion originated in my ignorance that the tiny "map" in the first line of the ebird report actually linked to a map of the location. Duh. I'll catch on to these newfangled computerized communication things eventually.

Street in Encinitas: Meadow Wood Place

About 5 houses later it makes another right turn (street very shortly thereafter ends in a cul de sac). The hummingbird house is on the outside (south) corner of the second right turn. Each time I have been there, there has been a white vehicle and a blue vehicle in the driveway. Very small front yard... there are 2 hummingbird feeders hanging in the shade.

Thanks Nancy, but it seems to be variation within googlemap or people™s phone locators, or satellite alignment, and who knows what else “ two of us this afternoon had different addresses showing on our phones, & I heard from another birder who™d been directed to a different street.

I respect not posting the address of a private residence, but feel the need to point out that following the eBird link directed several of us to the WRONG address this afternoon. Luckily, there were a couple of other birders already there who directed us across the street “ the hummingbird location is on the south side of the street & has pinecone & hummingbird feeders hanging in the trees in the frontyard. At 1:30 pm the bird appeared relatively briefly at a feeder but long enough that we each were able to get a quick but satisfying look.

I respect not posting the address of a private
residence, but feel the need to point out that following the eBird link
directed several of us to the WRONG address this afternoon. Luckily,
there were a couple of other birders already there who directed us across the
street “ the hummingbird location is on the south side of the
street& haspinecone & hummingbird feeders hanging in the
trees in the frontyard. At 1:30 pm the bird appeared relatively briefly
ata feederbut long enough thatwe each were able to get a
quick but satisfying look.
