From: garybnunn AT gmail.com
 
Mike Nelson sent over an eBird report with photographs of a BLACKPOLL WARBLER he discovered today Sep 20, 2018 in El Camino Memorial Park in Sorrento Valley. The park is just east of 805 highway on Carroll Canyon Road.
More details, photos, and a map link, can be found in Mikes eBird checklist herehttps://ebird.org/view/checkli...
The photographs appear to show golden-yellow feet but some closer photos might be desirable if the bird is relocated.

Subject: What's the water use project is on Rangeland Road, Ramona, (Tricolored Blackbird breeding Ponds now dry)?
Date: Thu Sep 20 2018 19:10 pm
From: kellysarber AT hotmail.com
 
Susan
Sounds like there was a effluent piping project from plant to spray irrigate as a treatment. Rangeland road construction is completed but there is more to happen but happy to know no ongoing construction. Call Ricardo at Ramona if you have any more questions. He was finally super helpful and I encouraged him to work with birders.

San Diego birders--I was kind of shocked when I went by Rangeland Road, Ramona today Sep 13 and saw the Tricolored Blackbird breeding pond (and the other larger pond just to the north) dry and reformed, with earth moving equipment and large piping lying around, ready to do some serious plumbing work, perhaps to enhance irrigation to grow grass to feed cattle. This is Ramona Water District land and am wondering if they went through the permitting process and if I could find some information on what they plan to do there, and if there is any mitigation planned for the Trikes. I counted only about 10 Tricoloreds there, mostly near the corral area, where usually there are hundreds.
If anyone knows about this water use project, could you contact me off the listserve? Thanks mucho. Sue

Hi Kelly, thank you for checking about the Rangland Road water project.  Are you saying the two ponds on the plant property have not been affected?  And is the irrigation project to enhance grazing land for the dairy cattle or for some other purpose? This is not clear.  Yes I will contact Ricardo and glad he seemed helpful.

Subject: Clark's Nutcracker continues at Agua Dulce, 20 Sep
Date: Thu Sep 20 2018 17:27 pm
From: larry AT larryedwards.com
 
As an FYI, there is shorter, more direct path to pump house. Take
the trail on the east side of the parking lot, just north of the
bathrooms. Keep left at the trail forks, pass through the open
meadow-like area, and you will see the pump house through the trees
as you proceed.


The "creek" (currently dry) is just beyond and below the pump house.

I did not see a second bird that was reported by another
couple.


I also found a lost birder who neglected to take the second
right as per Nancy's instructions:


"The trailhead is on Wooded Hill Road. At the end of the
road is a gate with a parking area and outhouse. Walk past the
gate on the road roughly half a mile. Take a dirt fork to the
right (still a road). After about a quarter mile there is
another fork to the right. Take that and that dirt road will
end at the pump house."


On my eBird app, that second right is approximately .14
mi from the first right turn (More like a veering to the right
than a sharp 90 degree right turn.).

I went up to Mt Laguna chasing the Clark's Nutcracker. There are 2 of them up there, I saw them both at the same time. They were moving more or less together through the tall trees near the pumphouse. Did not get any photos, I think I will try again tomorrow morning now that I know what they look like in flight. I didn't realize that in flight they had the white markings under the wings, and did not realize they were so large. I had been seeing them on and off all morning between about 8AM and 10AM but only realized they were the clark's closer to 10 AM....Also present pygmy and white-breasted nuthatch, Ca Scrub Jays, Steller's Jays, Hairy Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, and tons of Acorn Woodpeckers. Mountain Chickadee's, Spotted Towhee, Western Bluebirds, some violet - green swallows I believe, not 100% sure on that but appeared to be.

I saw the Northern Waterthrush this morning. Quite cooperative. Hopped about on the sticks and mudflat for several minutes, giving me excellent looks and photo op. Photos posted on eBird.
Also saw the Green-tailed Towhee on the trail about 75 yards from the trailhead, near the "road apples." Photos posted on eBird.

Peter and I saw the 2 Clark's Nutcrackers at eye level in trees over the creek near the pump house. Both dropped down into the thick vegetation in the creek bottom briefly before flying up to tree tops and eventually leaving the area.
A short distance down the creek a Townsend's Solitaire was perched in a willow.
We will add photos to our eBird list when we get home.

The question has been asked about how to find the pump house. The trailhead is on Wooded Hill Road. At the end of the road is a gate with a parking area and outhouse. Walk past the gate on the road roughly half a mile. Take a dirt fork to the right (still a road). After about a quarter mile there is another fork to the right. Take that and that dirt road will end at the pump house.

Both seen around 5:30P at the previously reported NE location near the Sky Haven Trailhead. Nice finds by Tito Gonzalez. This is a pretty birdy spot right now. I managed about thirty species by standing in one spot for an hour, despite several telephone call interruptions. And I probably missed a couple.
Checklist with bad ID photos of the rarities (and a greater yellowlegs for comparison to the pectoral sandpiper) below. My long lens is in for repair, alas.

Subject: Escaped falconry bird???: White Gyrfalcon flyover in Clairemont (San Diego nieghborhood), 12:15, Sep 18, 2018
Date: Tue Sep 18 2018 15:40 pm
From: stan.walens AT gmail.com
 
I am out in the field trying to refind this bird, so am thumb-typing this message:

I was coming out of Home Depot at Balboa and Genesee at 12:15, looking up at the sky as I always do, when a white morph gyrfalcon flew over my head, heading to the north/northeast.
The bird was in view for about 10 seconds, about 75-100 feet up. A large falcon, bigger than a peregrine, broad-winged, with a powerful flight. Completely white underneath except for primary tips, speckled black on the dorsal side. No jesses visible in flight.

Just to the immediate north of that area is a long corridor of high-tension wires and poles that stretches for about 2 miles. Most are not visible from Genesee, but I first drove 2 blocks north to the Sprouts parking lot and scoped the ones I could see from there. Ive been driving around the neighborhood here trying to get more looks at the electrical poles, but the entire area has aboveground wiring, and the streets in this area are a labyrinth.

I have a vague memory that a[-n escaped] white-morph gyrfalcon was reported from L.A. county last year, but do not have access to the listserv archives at the moment.

I cannot suggest anything other than keep your eyes open. Ill put in maybe another hour of searching before I have to give up, and will post if I re-locate it.

I made a few stops around the valley this morning. Overall rather quiet. A couple of birds of note;
American Bittern at the s.e. corner of the main Dairy Mart Ponds.
A vocal Northern Waterthrush at the "Stick Pond" of Dairy Mart Ponds.
A right on schedule White -cr. Sparrow at the Bird & Butterfly Garden drip.
Both male and female Vermillion Flycatchers at the Sunset Ball fields.
A large flight of swifts very high over the Old Suzie's Farms and moving east, appeared to be entirely White-throated Swifts.

A Solitary Sandpiper was in the flats area off bike path, opposite side of the Bay, west of the new apt or condo complex west of 7th St.  A couple of immature jaegers went by close to shore at the end of Seacoast Dr.  Based on build, I'd say both were most likely Parasitic, but not sure what species.  Both sightings around 1:00 PM.

SDFO Event  September 18, 2018 at 6:00 pmis the next meeting of San Diego Field Ornithologists. 
Tuesday, September 18, at 6:00 p.m., in the Hoffman Room of the San Diego Foundation Building, 2508 Historic Decatur Rd. Going south on Rosecrans St. in the Midway area of town, turn left on Roosevelt Rd. into Liberty Station and proceed a couple of blocks to Decatur. Parking is available on the street or in the adjacent parking lots.
Program: John Bruin will discuss Birding in Indonesia: From Borneo to Papua.
From mid-May to mid- June, John spent 5 weeks birding in Indonesia. He visited the islands of Java, Bali, Borneo and West Papua. In addition, he spent a couple of days in Singapore. Indonesia is home to more endemic species than any other country in the world. Birding in Indonesia can be challenging, due to the rustic and remote nature of roads and facilities. Many locations are rarely visited by other birders. John was fortunate to see some unique species, including Vogelkop Bower bird, Black- thighed Falconet, Javan Plover, Magnificent Bird of Paradise and many others. He will be presenting slides on some of the highlights of this trip.

Thanks for posting and refinding the bird before you left.

I was among that second wave of birders that showed up late morning. We
got decent looks at the bird, but no photos (that I'm aware of) as good
as yours. Thanks for posting on eBird.

Addendum: The closest access point to specific location is from Sky Haven Road which is north of the lake. If you put in 3759 Sky Haven Ln Oceanside, CA 92056 into google maps, it will take you to trail head. The lake spot is less than 75 yards from this point. Despite this omission, it looks like people were able to see the bird Saturday afternoon. Hopefully, it stays around for little bit.

I observed a PECTORAL SANDPIPER this morning, 15 SEP18, at Calavera Lake in Carlsbad. It was foraging with a variety of shorebirds in the NorthEast shore of the lake. This is a new ebird location for this species. Based on crisp, bright plumage it appears to be a juvenile. It was still there when I left. Photos are in following ebird report.

I went looking for the Northern Waterthrush this morning (Sept. 15) at Kumeyaay Lake. I did not see it or the one-footed Virginia Rail. I walked around the lake and returned to the site where it had been seen. Four other birders had arrived. They had not seen either of the two birds.

I did see two Soras and a number of Common Yellowthroats.

I saw the bright-red Summer Tanager this (Sunday) morning about 10 o'clock and got a decent photo of it before it flew into the adjacent school yard. There it seemed to take delight in chasing black phoebes off their perches in the eucalyptus trees. I stuck around for a few more minutes, but it didn't return to the park before I left.

Hi all,
For any who would like to check out this Pipit it was found on the west side of the lake about midway from the south end of the Lake Cuyamaca parking lot to the start of the reeds further south. Park at the Lake parking lot and you will be at the correct side of the lake. For those who have not been to the lake before it does cost ten dollars to park there for the day and on weekends they do check. You pay at the tackle shop.

At Marcy Park (in University City) this morning, Sept. 14, Keith and I, joined by Jim Roberts for part of the time, saw both the bright red Summer Tanager and the paler male that John Bruin photographed Tuesday.
We think we saw a second bright red one while the first was elsewhere in the park, but it was difficult to be sure, as they were moving around a lot.

We also went to Villa La Jolla Park and quickly spotted the male Summer Tanager Tito Gonzalez found there in early August.

Yes, the species is known to be part of the caged bird culture and kept
as a pet, and presumed to be an escapee. It is indigenous to central
Africa, not North America.

Subject: What's the water use project is on Rangeland Road, Ramona, (Tricolored Blackbird breeding Ponds now dry)?
Date: Thu Sep 13 2018 20:52 pm
From: seiurus=aol.com AT groups.io
 
San Diego birders--I was kind of shocked when I went by Rangeland Road, Ramona today Sep 13 and saw the Tricolored Blackbird breeding pond (and the other larger pond just to the north) dry and reformed, with earth moving equipment and large piping lying around, ready to do some serious plumbing work, perhaps to enhance irrigation to grow grass to feed cattle.  This is Ramona Water District  land and am wondering if they went through the permitting process and if I could find some information on what they plan to do there, and if there is any mitigation planned for the Trikes.  I counted only about 10 Tricoloreds there, mostly near the corral area, where usually there are hundreds.
If anyone knows about this water use project, could you contact me off the listserve? Thanks mucho. Sue

Gary Nunn asked me to post this so that others are aware of the presence of this Broad-tailed Paradise-Whydah and that we have a record of it in the event the species becomes a problem, along with its Pin-tailed cousin.

I saw this remarkable bird at the western fence, behind the admin building, about 8:15 a.m. Top and side of head black, nape dark coppery rufous, upperparts black, breast dark maroon to rufous, belly yellowish white, tail feathers black and extending more than the length of the body.

Subject: Summer Tanager Marcy Park
Date: Thu Sep 13 2018 20:03 pm
From: rogeruzun AT gmail.com
 
Headed over to Villa La Jolla Park around 7AM to look for the Summer Tanager that's been there. This was my third try and I struck out (3 strikes). Still several Hooded Orioles around there though, along with Pacific Slope Flycatchers and Orange-Crowned Warblers.
Headed over to Marcy Park in La Jolla around 8 AM and the bright red male Summer Tanager was out and about, being very vocal. He stayed up in the high Eucalyptus trees on the SE corner of the park, the fence nearest the school area and Stresemann Street. He would go into a leafy Eucalyptus tree on school property periodically. He seemed to have a circular route he would run around the neighborhood.
He returned about 8:30 AM and was hawking very low and on the ground in a low, wide pine tree in the center of the park very near the street. He was not shy and was being very territorial with other flycatchers and the Western Bluebirds. Finally got to see a male Summer Tanager low to the ground.

Subject: Tricolored Heron at San Luis Rey River Mouth
Date: Thu Sep 13 2018 17:14 pm
From: SanDiegoRegionBirding-noreply AT yahoogroups.com
 
I observed an immature Tricolored Heron at the mouth of the San Luis Rey River this morning from 1000-1010. The birdis rather confiding with a slow approach. This is my first record of this species at this location. eBird shows no otherrecords in Oceanside.
Swallows and swifts were moving through earlier in the morning. Forty individual swallows of four species were resting/foraging on the ground in the sandy area between the "lagoon" and the ocean.
A singing Bell's Vireo was belting out its strange song along the San Luis Rey River west of Foussat. I don't usuallyhear them this late.

Subject: Eastern Kingbird on the desert
Date: Wed Sep 12 2018 14:01 pm
From: nancy.r.christensen AT gmail.com
 
This morning I found an Eastern Kingbird at Agua Caliente County Park. It was in the SE part of the campground where it is feeding on palm tree fruit. Pleasant morning there with 32 species seen. 
I also visited the Borrego Springs WTP though it was hot by the time I got there. Nothing too exciting. First Bell/Sagebrush Sparrows of the season. The north pond has some water, the south pond is dry and gone to seed. Lots of potential for great birds.
