    Studied the bird this morning betwen 8 and 9 AM. It was in the LA River about 125 yards west of the dam when first seen. It did fly father west for a short time, west of the mouth of Haskell Creek. It then walked east feeding along the way until it was near where first observed..Face markings, dark eye and dull legs told it from the usual White-faced Ibis.?none of which were present. I could not see the reddish "ankle/knee" another?mark of a Glossy

  7. Glossy Ibis - complete notes LINK
    DATE: TODAY @ 12:18pm
    Tues. at approximately 3:40 pm, I sat the bird in the small slough
    
    that drains from the north side of the river. It crossed to the
    
    river then immediately flew north (seemingly dangling a leg but was
    
    walking o.k. later) shortly before good views. We were trying to
    
    determine whether it had gone to golf lakes or perhaps Balboa Lake.
    
    It returned within 10 minutes to river just west of dam and rocky
    
    area where it continually busily fed for over an hour. In the
    
    Scheel's new Swarovsky heavy scope, the blue outlining the facial
    
    patch was extremely obvious.
    
    Park on east side of Woodlake near Burbank, crossing on foot at both
    
    lights. Take path by heavy car type gate north to river.

  17. Re: CA or Blacktailed Gnatcatcher ? LINK
    DATE: May 24, 2016 @ 6:33am, 2 day(s) ago
    Jeanette,
    
    The two species can look similar from some angles but the best "fieldmark" is range - Black-tailed is found in the low desert (= east of Banning Pass) and California is here on the coast. California is a lot darker below than Black-tailed, and the vocalizations are pretty different (BT usually gives a dry, atonal scolding note, quickly repeated, while CA gives a nasally, rising/falling mewing sound). Palos Verdes is a great area to see California, but know that Blue-gray Gnatcatcher is present from August through April there, with a handful over-summering, and unless you get a good look/listen, those two can seem similar. This time of year is when you want to really get to know California Gnatcatcher since it should really be the only one there for the next few months. Any patch of native scrub on the outer peninsula (= along PV Drive) should have them, though the total population out there isn't yuuuuge (c. 50 pr).

  19. Fall migration notes LINK
    DATE: May 23, 2016 @ 4:06pm, 2 day(s) ago
    OK, so that’s a bit of a misleading subject line.  But of interest Sunday (22 May) was a juvenile Orange-crowned Warbler in cottonwoods along Sierra Hwy. at Lake Una (the pond across the highway from Lake Palmdale) – drab plumage, buffy
    wingbars etc. This sighting points out just how early this species can disperse away from its breeding grounds (which are mainly on the coastal slope of the mountains and at a minimum probably 5-10 miles from Palmdale, and in very different habitat).  Starting
    about now, most Orange-crowneds high in the San Gabriels will also be birds dispersing well away from breeding areas.  Of mild interest, there was also a pair of Redheads on Lake Una (private and fenced, but viewable from the shoulder of Sierra Hwy.).   Kimball   Kimball L.

  21. CA or Blacktailed Gnatcatcher ? LINK
    DATE: May 23, 2016 @ 11:10am, 2 day(s) ago
    Hiking east of Trump National  Golf Course, below Rotunda, and above switchbacks (Rancho Palos Verdes) I was able to watch a gnatcatcher for some time. In appearance and song it seemed to be a blacktailed, however, the range Maps seem to say it was likely a California. Any ideas?      Jeanette Repp

    There are currently 3 Purple Martins flying around the Piute Ponds with a small group of swallows (mostly Tree, a few Cliffs and Barns). I last saw them over the C-Dike near the pavilion.

    Birders,
    
    Sun 22 May
    
    Early this morning the Northern Parula was still at Riverfront Park, seen by a small group of us. It was again in trees around the northeast picnic shelter and also moved briefly to the center of the park. Below are links to my photos from today (Mark Scheel got some shots that are far superior).

  29. Northern Parula in Maywood LINK
    DATE: May 21, 2016 @ 3:58pm, 4 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Sat 21 May
    
    Mid morning today there was a Northern Parula at Maywood Riverfront Park, foraging in trees in the northeast part of the park near a small red-roofed picnic shelter. It was sometimes chased around by a Hermit Warbler and a Wilson's, and when it left these trees I couldn't find it. I had good looks at the bird but was not so successful with photos (below). Riverfront Park is just west of the L.A.River, south of Slauson Ave.

    Hi Birders
    
    This morning before 8am I was traveling to work on the 2 north above the Mountain Ave. exit towards the 210 freeway when I looked into the sky and below the murky May Grey, an AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN was flying southbound over the 2 freeway. Not an everyday sight!
    
    Happy Birding!

  33. Another Gray Vireo, Bear Divide (ANF) LINK
    DATE: May 18, 2016 @ 8:48am, 7 day(s) ago
    Hi all, this morning at about 0645 there was a gray vireo singing in the big dirt parking lot that is straight uphill and north of the Bear Divide forest service station(on the north side of bear divide rd). It sang for about a minute and then I got brief but satisfying looks at it before it flew north downslope toward Santa Clarita. I don't think it is chaseable but if it is relocated I will be sure to let everyone know. Ebird checklist:
    
    http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S29754868
    
    This is the same site where last Wednesday, I had around a thousand migrants pass in under an hour. It has been mostly slow since then, but if you hit this spot on the right morning, it can be quite rewarding.
    
    Cheers,

  37. Un-chase-able good stuff in the Antelope Valley LINK
    DATE: May 17, 2016 @ 8:13pm, 8 day(s) ago
    LA Birders,
    
    Though in an inaccessible part of the eastern side of Edwards Air Force Base, I had a few good birds this morning that are worth mentioning to the group. The singular highlight was a Gray Vireo that moved between Kern and LA Counties. Others were Hooded Warbler (Kern), 2 Green-tailed Towhees, and a singing male Rose-breasted Grosbeak (just over the Kern line). In addition to these, the desert was full of regular migrants with nearly every mesquite tree moving with stuff.
    
    The area where all of these birds were present is basically along 120th Street East, and though un-chase-able, I want to use them as a platform to encourage people to bird the migrant traps in the eastern Antelope Valley. Some spots worth checking are the neighborhoods of Lake Los Angeles, the wind-break tree row at 117th St East and Ave I, the well-treed yards along 125th St E and Ave H, and the neighborhood (Alta Vista) along 140th St East and Ave G (I think). These places are remote, surrounded by desert vastness and, on days like today when a migration event was clearly occurring out there, may be exciting. North winds were blowing out there all afternoon, so perhaps whatever blew in on Monday night will be there tomorrow, as well.

  39. PAS Monthly Meeting: Here be dragons.... Wed. May 18th LINK
    DATE: May 17, 2016 @ 6:02pm, 8 day(s) ago
    Hi All,
    
    Come join Pasadena Audubon Society tomorrow evening, May 18th, for our
    monthly meeting at Eaton Canyon Nature Center, 1750 North Altadena Drive,
    Pasadena.
    
    This month?David Bell, creator of many free apps for naturalists: BirdLog
    (now called eBird Mobile), Merlin, BirdsEye and most recently the Dragonfly ID
    App, talks about getting to grips with the area's dragonflies and damselflies.
    
    This talk is intended to help birders and other nature
    enthusiasts get started with enjoying dragonflies and damselflies. The best way
    to get started is … to get started! We will talk about what you’ll need, where
    and when to go and simple (and more advanced) tools to help you. The talk will
    also help you learn how to identify some of the most common species in our
    local area.
    
    PAS meetings start at 7:00pm for social time and the program
    kicks off at 7:30pm.
    
    See you there,

  41. ABC Final Results: 270 Species (long email) LINK
    DATE: May 17, 2016 @ 11:48am, 8 day(s) ago
    Greetings Everyone,
    
    The final total for America's Birdiest County in Los Angeles County in 2016 was 270 species. After the last update we had some species under review and accepted black and white warbler, merlin, and received documentation for a ferruginous hawk reported earlier.
    
    America's Birdiest County totals for Los Angeles County since 2003:
    Year? Total Rank
    2016? 270??? 6
    2015? 275??? 2
    2014? 272??? 3
    2013? 265??? 7
    2012? 262?? 10
    2011? 277??? 1
    2010? 271??? 4
    2009? 264??? 8
    2008? 255?? 11
    2007? 271??? 4
    2006? 263??? 9
    2005? 246?? 12
    2004? 239?? 13
    2003? 239?? 14
    
    Average 2003-present: 262.1 +- 12.7
    
    Previous America's Birdiest County winners:
    ...discontinued after 2011...
    2011? 277? Los Angeles
    2010? 271? Los Angeles
    2009? 264? Los Angeles
    2008? 255? Los Angeles
    2007? 271? Los Angeles
    2006? 263? Los Angeles
    2005? 250? Monterey and San Diego (tie)
    2004? 266? San Diego
    2003? 248? Monterey
    
    The average number of species we've found since 2003 is about 262, so the count this year was clearly above average.? 2016 was also the third consecutive year that we've found at least 270 species and this is the first time we've done that.? ?
    
    We did the count several days later this year than in 2015 due to the way that the calendar dates advance each year.? In addition, 2016 is also a leap year.? The fact that we conducted the count later than usual probably accounts for the difficulty we had with locating some species we usually get that become scarce by early April.? Examples include sharp-shinned hawk and merlin. ?
    
    That said, we still did well despite a late winter storm on Saturday that produced windy conditions in the Antelope Valley, gloomy conditions along the coast, and rain and wind in the San Gabriel Mountains.? This is the second consecutive year that a late storm has been a factor.
    
    We added five new species this year:
    Neotropic Cormorant????? Bonelli Park
    Ridgway's Rail?????????? Ballona Fresh Water Marsh
    Bald Eagle?????????????? San Gabriel Reservoir
    Varied Thrush??????????? Rancho Sierra Golf Club
    Red-throated Pipit?????? San Clemente Island
    
    Red-throated pipit was probably the most surprising addition given the paucity of spring records for this species in California.? Even more surprising, two more were found at Big Bear Lake on the same weekend. The neotropic cormorant has been present for weeks and is? a first record for Los Angeles County.? Ridgway's rail is a very welcome addition to the count total given the scarcity of habitat for this species.? Its presence is a positive sign that efforts to restore habitat in places like the Ballona Fresh Water Marsh? are well worth the effort and should be expanded.
    
    Regarding the bald eagle, we accepted this one because it's breeding on the mainland without human assistance.? It turns out that some eagles on San Clemente Island are also doing this, but many on Catalina Island are likely to require help from people for a long time due to the presence of DDT in the food chain in that area.
    
    How does five new species in 2016 compare with results from previous years?? Here are the number of new species that we've added since 2010:
    2016? 5
    2015? 4
    2014? 5
    2013? 3
    2012? 5
    2011? 7
    2010? 5
    Our recent eistory of adding about five species annually suggests there are still plenty of new species to find in future years.? Eventually this number should decrease but it may be many years before we run out of new species to find.
    
    Here are the species that we FOUND in 2016:
    *? Greater White-fronted Goose???? ?
    *? Snow Goose????????????????????? ?
    *? Ross's Goose
    *? Brant??????????????????????????? ?
    *? Cackling Goose?????????????????? ?

  45. blue ridge birds LINK
    DATE: May 15, 2016 @ 3:22pm, 10 day(s) ago
    I had no luck this weekend trying to refind the Hepatic Tanager pair that was along Blue Ridge Road above Wrightwood last summer. Unexpected birds seen include a soaring pair of adult Peregrine Falcons and a female Selasphorus hummingbird (both on 5/13). Per Unitt (2004),San Diego has coastal records of Rufous Hummingbird spring stragglers on 12 and 16 May, but I expect one can't rule out a peregrinating sedentarius (oxymoron?). I initially thought a singing House Finch at 8,460' was odd, but then I encountered two more singers near the communication facility at 8,524' (which may account for their presence, I suppose). The manzanita and currant shrubs along Blue Ridge seem fine, but the chinquapin shrubs are showing stress, and, most disturbingly, half of the mountain mahogany on the steep south-facing slope are dead. Another beetle-related casualty?

  49. Apology about my Bulbul request, I thought everyone was talking Huntington Beach.... LINK
    DATE: May 14, 2016 @ 4:51pm, 11 day(s) ago
    Hi Everyone,
    ?
    I will only post one last time on this subject. ?I wanted to apologize to all that tried to steer me Towards Huntington Library, the subject line should say it all. ?However, just so you all know you didn't go unheard, on our way to the LA Bontanical Gardens, we saw the Huntington Library sign and quickly pulled off and looked it up. ?We did go and had a nice late morning of chasing around Bulbul's to get some pics. ?We even found one nest which we will not disclose it's location, but it had one very very young chick in it, it looks only a day or two old, to me anyhow. ?I want to thank you again for everyone that wrote me back, we had a very nice day.
