Birders, Tues 6 March The American Redstart at Hemingway Park was seen again this morning, having moved a bit south from it's spot on 26 Feb and 1 Mar. Today approx 0950-1020 it was working trees just past the last picnic table on that east side. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/25794999287 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/39770667545 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/39955646284 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/26794295308 Earlier AM I spent some time at Dockweiler Beach, mostly near lifeguard station #47 and the Snowy Plover enclosure. I missed the Pacific Golden-Plover today and didn't see any Black-legged Kittiwakes, but tried to check through the huge Surf Scoter flocks. Many of the birds were well off-shore and difficult to adequately cover, but in the rafts near shore I picked up three Black Scoters and at least three White-wingeds. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/26794183658 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/26794170298 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/39955455054 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/25794612527 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/25794585817 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/26793984988 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/26793974138 http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/39955287144 Also at Dockweiler there were two Black Skimmers on the beach south of the Hyperion Bluff Outlook. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbarth/39955139974 Richard Barth West Hollywood
