   Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) - BHGR (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. blue ridge LINK
    DATE: Jul 16, 2018 @ 3:06pm, 2 month(s) ago
    On the return from a quick trip to the Sierras yesterday, we stopped off along Blue Ridge Road of the San Gabes in the late afternoon. At about 5:30pm, an adult Swainson's Hawk flew overhead, quickly rising and soaring off to the east. This morning was birdy, with ample evidence of upslope avian movement, including a Cassin's Vireo and juvenile Black-headed Grosbeak in white firs at 8,400', and a Nuttall's Woodpecker at Blue Ridge campground. Also at the latter location was a juvenile female Hermit Warbler. (I'll send a couple photos to KLG).
    
    BTW, it seems almost treasonous to be away from radio and newspapers for the past four days, given recent political turmoil. I hope I didn't miss anything.

  3. Re: [LACoBirds] Continuing Brant, Pacific Loon, Willow Flycatcher & more (San Pedro) LINK
    DATE: May 29, 2018, 4 month(s) ago
    The Pacific Loon also continued at the same location as of 11:12am today
    (in fact at that time, it was floating alongside the Brant, demonstrating
    that they are the same length). And to correct my earlier comment about
    the beached Red-throated Loon: it's in first-summer (immature) plumage,
    not adult nonbreeding.
    
    The other local Ash-throated Flycatcher also continues. One was at
    Lookout Point Park on May 20 (11:07-11:20am) and May 25 (1:50pm), and one
    was at Shoshonean Road on May 24 (5:11pm) and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium
    parking lot on May 29 (10:53-10:56am).
    
    And concerning my comment about Black Skimmers, "each one has an
    audibly different voice", I should add that I've noticed the same
    thing for most bird species. The reason it came to mind for skimmers is
    that I've been reporting lots of banded ones, and was thinking about
    potential alternative ways to track individuals over time.
    
    Another little note I'd like to add: The Double-crested Cormorants at
    Cabrillo Youth Camp have been very vocal for the past week or more. I
    think I was birding for years before I ever heard one at all. I may not
    still have ever heard a Brown Pelican vocalize.

    I just went down to Cabrillo
    Beach, and as of 9:15am, the Brant continues, this time on the inner
    beach (not the scout camp beach) along with a flock of Black Skimmers,
    California Gulls, and Western Gulls. I also just took a beached
    Red-throated Loon (adult in nonbreeding plumage) from the inner beach to
    IBRRC. I haven't checked yet if the Pacific Loon is still here, but it
    seems healthy; it looked very clean when it showed its belly yesterday
    evening, and was putting its head underwater to look for prey (though
    didn't dive while I watched).
    
    And a third thing I forgot to include: An Olive-sided Flycatcher was
    perching in trees both small and large on the west side of the southern
    stretch of Shoshonean Road (west-adjacent of the Salt Marsh), on May 22
    from 9:02am to 9:18am.

    First of all, I forgot to
    include three things: A Nashville Warbler was in my backyard near
    Cabrillo Beach on May 23 and 24, and a male Phainopepla was at the Greg
    Smith Conifer Grove again on May 20 at 12:10pm. And, for a few days
    starting May 15, there were singing Swainson's Thrushes all over the
    Cabrillo area (in a tree near the dirt ramp down to Cabrillo Beach; in a
    tree in the Marine Aquarium parking lot area; all along the top of the
    slope/cliffside on the west side of Shoshonean Road), just like the
    singing Black-headed Grosbeaks; both species are still around here, but
    not singing anywhere near as much as they were during those few
    days.
    
    Secondly, I wanted to add that of all the Japanese White-eye audio
    samples on xeno-canto.org , the only
    ones that actually sounded like ours here were two recordings made in
    Orange County. None of the recordings made in Japan sounded like ours. I
    am inclined to believe that the identification of Japanese White-eye is
    incorrect, and they're in fact some other species of White-eye (or at
    least, a subspecies of Japanese White-eye that is vastly
    under-represented on xeno-canto); the call sounds like an innate call,
    which wouldn't need to be learned, so captive-raised birds should do the
    same calls as wild ones in their native habitat, right

    Yesterday and today (May 27-28) both a Black Brant, and a Pacific Loon in
    absolutely full breeding plumage, were at Cabrillo Youth Camp (during the
    late afternoon, at least, when I looked on both days). The Brant spent
    time both on water and on shore. Both birds can be seen from the boat
    launch dock which is southeast-adjacent to the salt marsh (Salinas de San
    Pedro).
    
    On both May 23 and 25 a Willow Flycatcher showed up in my backyard,
    giving me a new yard bird. (It's possible they weren't even the same
    individual.) Other flycatchers have been especially abundant as well;
    Pacific-slope Flycatchers have been as numerous as I ever remember them
    being here, and Willow Flycatchers might be even more numerous than
    they've been before in my experience (i.e. since 2006). I saw an
    agonistic territorial encounter between two Willow Flycatchers for the
    first time (in my backyard) and one of them made an agonistic call
    sounding identical to a Say's Phoebe agonstic call (a call that many
    Northern Mockingbirds include in their song repertoire) a call which I
    think is most notable for its peculiar lack of
    "aggressive-soundingness" to human ears, in contrast to the
    agonistic calls of most other species. And I have found two Ash-throated
    Flycatchers recently at different local spots, one of them continuing,
    when Ash-throated Flycatchers have been mostly absent in my area for
    years.
    
    The Warbling Vireos are still present in force. I've had at least 6 at
    once in my backyard at times, and they often sing.
    
    I have observed proof of Orange-crowned Warbler nesting success in the
    Salt Marsh / Shoshonean Road area. An Orange-crowned Warbler, whose song
    I recognize from at least one year ago at the same location, fed a
    begging juvenile, and I recognized his identifying physical features from
    having filmed him singing earlier. And at another spot, an Orange-crowned
    Warbler sang for vast swaths of the day (also with a unique recognizable
    song), every day for weeks, and suddenly a few days ago stopped singing
    and started hanging out with a second Orange-crowned Warbler very
    suggestive that this pair are nesting as well.
    
    At least two "Japanese" White-eyes have been quite consipicuous
    in the area, with a Hutton's Vireo like call, showing up often in the
    Cabrillo Marine Aquarium parking lot... and today for the first time I'm
    aware of, in my backyard near Cabrillo Beach. (They usually show up as a
    pair together, which for a while made me think there are two in the area,
    but in retrospect the frequency with which I encounter them suggests
    there are quite a bit more than two.) I put "Japanese" in
    quotes because I don't understand why virtually everyone is identifying
    these as Japanese White-eyes. I looked at the various species of
    White-eye (they are numerous) and a large number of them look virtually
    identical I couldn't find any distinguishing characteristics by looking
    at photos. When listing to samples of a large subset of White-eye species
    on xeno-canto.org , I couldn't find
    any that actually matches the Hutton's Vireo like call I most often hear
    from the ones here and in Orange County. Certainly, the Japanese
    White-eye audio samples sound nothing like the ones here. So why do
    birders identify them as Japanese White-eye instead of
    White-eye sp.
    
    Black Skimmers have been sticking around every day lately at the Cabrillo
    Youth Camp shore. They're very vocal whenever another skimmer comes in to
    land with them, and each one has an audibly different voice. I got to see
    a behavior I'd never seen before from this species a fish display. A
    skimmer held the fish in his bill, as if to entice the other skimmers,
    but none of them proved worthy of it (all who tried to take it were
    denied) and eventually he ended up eating it himself.
    
    On May 24 I had my first-of-season Least Tern at Cabrillo Beach dive and
    catch a fish in the water just outside the salt marsh.
    
    A Heermann's Gull adult in breeding plumage was at Cabrillo Beach today
    at 5:33pm. I haven't even seen an immature one since May 12, and hadn't
    seen an adult since March 24.
    
    I will post photos later.

  9. Yellow-breasted Chat & Phainopeplas continue in San Pedro LINK
    DATE: May 15, 2018 @ 1:09am, 4 month(s) ago
    [edited to fix a typo; I put "GiB" when I meant
    "MiB"]
    
    Yesterday (May 13), the two male Phainopeplas continued at the
    same location. I was there for an hour before they showed up at 7:35pm
    and called, and displaced each others' perches a few times (seemingly
    playfully, not aggressively).
    
    I tried several times for the Yellow-breasted Chat, and did not hear it
    again, but that was in the afternoon. This morning (May 14), I heard him
    sing in the exact same spot as before, from 9:30am to 9:47am. An
    Orange-crowned Warbler regularly sings at that location as well (and did
    so while the Chat sang).
    
    Singing Black-headed Grosbeaks also arrived in the Cabrillo area
    yesterday, and I finally managed to finally get them and Western Tanager
    as seen yard birds (138 species now).
    
    There were also TONS of Warbling Vireos in the area; just in the Marine
    Aquarium parking lot and Shoshonean Road, I think there were over a
    dozen. There were also three in my backyard.
    
    There are also still Western Kingbirds in the area. At peak (April 3)
    there were at least 24 in the Cabrillo Beach area, and now there are
    still at least 2 usually found in the Marine Aquarium parking lot (and
    they're very vocal). I've also seen some recently at the same location as
    the Phainopeplas. (Also, my FOS was March 23, at Cabrillo

    At 9:59am today (May 11), on the

    Last I checked, May 7, the Phainopeplas continued at the Greg Smith

    call type from one of them I hadn't heard before (but mostly they were

    Pacific-slope Flycatcher, and Lazuli Bunting.

    their time in the Greg Smith Conifer Grove (general vicinity of

    female/juvenile on a branch, facing each other, and the female/juvenile
    opened its bill wide, as if it were begging (which would suggest it might
    be a juvenile). In general, the male tended to be more conspicuous, and
    called much more often, sometimes calling repeatedly in rapid succession
    for an extended period of time. They were both still in the Greg Smith
    Conifer Grove when I left at 6:57pm. I will be very curious to see if

  11. Yellow-breasted Chat & Phainopeplas continue in San Pedro LINK
    DATE: May 15, 2018 @ 12:40am, 4 month(s) ago
    Yesterday (May 13), the two male Phainopeplas continued at the same
    location. I was there for an hour before they showed up at 7:35pm and
    called, and displaced each others' perches a few times (seemingly
    playfully, not aggressively).
    
    I tried several times for the Yellow-breasted Chat, and did not hear it
    again, but that was in the afternoon. This morning (May 14), I heard him
    sing in the exact same spot as before, from 9:30am to 9:47am. An
    Orange-crowned Warbler regularly sings at that location as well (and did
    so while the Chat sang).
    
    Singing Black-headed Grosbeaks also arrived in the Cabrillo area
    yesterday, and I finally managed to finally get them and Western Tanager
    as seen yard birds (138 species now).
    
    There were also TONS of Warbling Vireos in the area; just in the Marine
    Aquarium parking lot and Shoshonean Road, I think there were over a
    dozen. There were also three in my backyard.
    
    There are also still Western Kingbirds in the area. At peak (April 3)
    there were at least 24 in the Cabrillo Beach area, and now there are
    still at least 2 usually found in the Marine Aquarium parking lot (and
    they're very vocal). I've also seen some recently at the same location as
    the Phainopeplas. (Also, my FOS was March 23, at Cabrillo
    Beach.)

  13. The Show continutes at the Schotia at Kenneth Hahn Park LINK
    DATE: May 14, 2018 @ 7:28am, 4 month(s) ago
    In two visits to the Schotia trees at Kenneth Hahn Park yesterday, Eric and I saw: Hooded and Bullock's Orioles, W Tanagers, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Swainson's Thrushes, Nuttall's Woodpecker, Warbling Vireo, and
    Wilson's, Townsend's, Yellow, Orange-crowned and Hooded Warblers, Oh, and a pair of Lazuli Buntings. The best show came around 7:15pm when several birds took baths- sometimes two species at a time! Mourning doves, Spotted and California Towhees, Lesser Goldfinches and a California Jay joined in the bathing entertainment. Also had Cedar Waxwings and Western Kingbirds passing by. And no warbler neck!
    Good birding,
    Ann and Eric Brooks

    KHP is free on weekdays, the gardens with the trees are at the end of the road at the top of the hill. Park in the lot and walk south (right as you are coming up the hill). Pass the Hummingbird Garden (also busy), and the first Schotia is just past the large Brazilian pepper tree. There is another, smaller one a little farther south under the very tall Ash tree.

  15. Black-chinned Sparrow LINK
    DATE: May 8, 2018 @ 8:18pm, 4 month(s) ago
    Hello -
    Today at Forrestal Nature Reserve on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, I saw a Black-chinned Sparrow. No photo, but the overall dark gray head and underparts and brown striped back and wings were pretty diagnostic. I would have said that the bill was orange, but it seems the books call it pink. Anyway it was in stark contrast with the gray face with black around the eyes and throat. Not sure if this bird has been seen in this area before - I have only seen it in the deserts of CA, AZ and Utah.
    I walk up to the FNP most days so it's always fun to see something new. Yesterday I had a flyover view of an immature Bald Eagle. The 2 red wing tags were visible, but not readable. I assume it came over from Catalina.
    On another note, the Black-headed Grosbeaks have been exceptionally numerous this year. I n my yard I have seen at least one (and often 3) every day starting on April 6 thru today, with the exception of April 15 thru April 20.
    Happy Birding, everyone! Peggy Gussman Rancho Palos Verdes

  23. ABC Update: 249 Species LINK
    DATE: Apr 28, 2018 @ 9:06pm, 5 month(s) ago
    Hi Everyone,
    
    A number of reports have come in and we've added some species.Since the last update we have added:
    
    Lesser Scaup
    
    
    
    
    
     Bonelli Park Lesser Yellowlegs
    
    Peck Pit Bald Eagle
    
    
    
    
    
    San Clemente Island Calliope Hummingbird
    
     Cloud Burst Summit Golden-crowned Kinglet.Cortelyou Spring Lark Sparrow

  27. ABC Update: 238 species LINK
    DATE: Apr 28, 2018 @ 11:46am, 5 month(s) ago
    All,
    
    More species have come in, some of them gleaned from eBird:
    
    Marbled Godwit
    
     Dunlin
    
    
    
    
    
     Gray Flycatcher Purple Martin
    
     Bob's Gap: group of three Brewer's sparrow
    
    The purple martins will trip the "rare bird" filter in eBird so we will need good documentation.
    
    To date, I know of two observers who have searched Bob's Gap for the gray vireo but nobody has found it yet.
    
    Here again is our updated list of everything we've FOUND:
    
    * Snow Goose

     * Canada Goose
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    * Wood Duck
