  1. Re: [LACoBirds] scoter notes - Dockweiler Hyperion Bluff to Grand Ave LINK
    DATE: Feb 6, 2018 @ 9:42pm, 9 month(s) ago
    I, on the other hand, decided that I would find my own scoter flocks between Zuma and Santa Monica, today. Quite possibly one of the dumbest ideas I've had in a while. I did find one small flock of surf scoters.
    There were numbers of red-throated loons near-shore, a breeding plumage Pelagic Cormorant, and a few Black-headed Shearwaters between Malibu Lagoon and Topanga Lagoon.
    Nanday Parakeets flew back and forth between Pepperdine Ponds and the beaches. It's amazing how common they are all over the entire Malibu area, even 5 or more miles in from the ocean e.g. King Gillette Ranch (male Eurasian Wigeon) and Malibu Creek State Park.
    BTW the Claremont Chestnut-sided Warbler may have jumped bail, along with the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at DeForest Park in Long Beach.

    Subject: [LACoBirds] scoter notes - Dockweiler Hyperion Bluff to Grand Ave
    Tues 6 Feb
    Early this morning in the haze off Dockweiler Beach there were over two thousand scoters scattered from the Hyperion outlook building down to Grand Ave. I did my best to look through all the flocks but I'm sure I missed some stuff. I did find at least four
    Black Scoters and a White-winged. The White-winged was well off shore---I had good scope looks at it but got no usable photos. Black Scoter photos:
