  3. Dusky Warbler, San Clemente Island, LA Co., 11 October LINK
    DATE: Oct 11, 2017 @ 8:25pm, 6 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    In this seemingly good fall for Dusky Warbler in California, I was pleased to find a very vocal and cooperative one today at Lemon Tank on San Clemente Island, where a Siberian portal must have opened a few weeks ago. This is the 2nd record for Los Angeles County, with the first less than 2 weeks ago at Madrona Marsh.

    This demonstrates the difficulty in locating and following the movements

  13. The Dusky at Madrona LINK
    DATE: Oct 1, 2017 @ 6:56pm, 16 day(s) ago
    Good evening Birders,
    
    The DUSKY WARBLER continues in the same general areas at Madrona. Many people got to see it today. But, there are many who have not yet seen it and would like to try tomorrow.
    
    As a result, because of this special occasion, we will open the gate at 7am and close at 3pm.
    
    Remember that Monday is a day that, under normal circumstances, the Preserve would rest. We are closed on all other Mondays.
    
    So, please be respectful out there, remember we have done a lot of restoration to enhance the habitats - please don't trample plants.
    
    Thank you,

  17. DUSKY WARBLER still at Madrona LINK
    DATE: Sep 30, 2017, 18 day(s) ago
    Good evening Birders,
    
    It was wonderful that so many people got to see the bird and the other good birds at Madrona today. But incase you would like a second look, or did not have the chance to go bird today, the gate will be opened at about 8am by John Thomlinson. Thank you too for being respectful while out there. There are no big events tomorrow so parking should not be an issue. The Preserve will close at 5pm and is closed on Monday. Should anyone need access Monday, please let me know, I'll let you in.
    
    Happy fall birding!

  23. (and a Blackpoll) Re: [LACoBirds] Re: DUSKY WARBLER at Madrona LINK
    DATE: Sep 30, 2017, 18 day(s) ago
    Apparently I independently stumbled across a fall plumage Blackpoll Warbler (there was so much yellow and green on the bird that at first I thought it was a Pine Warbler, but it wasn't yellow and clean enough) seen by a few others. In the same area. Can someone
    please share photos if they see it The warbler was sitting in the reeds in the middle of a gigantic flock of munias. There was also an orange cheeked waxbill.

     Good evening birders!
    
    I'm shocked to share that this afternoon I found a DUSKY WARBLER near the middle of the Preserve, along the main east-west road.
    
    It's a very skulky bird - photos will be posted on my ebird report for today..
    
    If you come see it you may have a
    
    a challenge parking as this weekend at Madrona is very busy with programs and a native plant sale. There is some parking along streets like on Monterey - or across the street - there are businesses. Expect these areas to be crowded too.
    
    The Preserve is open 10am - 5pm. I have a few volunteers and/or staff who'll be on the Preserve to help guide you to the area - we will have someone there by 7am in the morning but the Preserve will be closed at 5pm.
    
    Please be respectful while out there - there are programs occurring and there has been restoration done on the Preserve - please don't trample the plants.
    
    Thank you to Dan Cooper for identifying it for me. I could not make a positive ID - that's why I'm late posting it.
    
    Happy birding,

    It's a very skulky bird - photos will be posted on my ebird report for today.
    
    If you come see it you may have a
    
    a challenge parking as this weekend at Madrona is very busy with programs and a native plant sale. There is some parking along streets like on Monterey - or across the street - there are businesses. Expect these areas to be crowded too.
    
    The Preserve is open 10am - 5pm. I have a few volunteers and/or staff who'll be on the Preserve to help guide you to the area - we will have someone there by 7am in the morning but the Preserve will be closed at 5pm.
    
    Please be respectful while out there - there are programs occurring and there has been restoration done on the Preserve - please don't trample the plants.
    
    Thank you to Dan Cooper for identifying it for me. I could not make a positive ID - that's why I'm late posting it.
    
    Happy birding,
    
    Tracy
