)

  1. Madrona Marsh Tropical Kingbird LINK
    DATE: Jan 17, 2018 @ 11:53am, 1 day(s) ago
    There is a small Kingbird with a very long black bill, and a black face mask. It is either a tropical or Couch's, hahaha, Kingbird. This bird is staying in trees along the water's edge along the southwestern portion of Madrona Marsh. The Eastern Phoebe is also
    here. This is the area referred to by many as the Chevron Corner. Both birds are 80 to 100 yards east of the exact southwest corner of The Preserve.

  5. Scott's Oriole Bonelli LINK
    DATE: Jan 6, 2018 @ 9:48am, 12 day(s) ago
    Hi,
    
    I was at Bonelli this morning, just trying to get the known wintering birds for 2018 year birds, I was staring up into the bare, leafless trees directly to the west of the white octagonal building that has green awnings next to it. This building is the first
    building to the west of bathroom number 2. This is at the North Shore of Bonelli.
    
    I was looking for The elusive Eastern Phoebe in those two trees, when I noticed an adult male Scott's Oriole. Then I noticed that I don't have my camera with me. Then I noticed that I don't have either one of my two cell phones with me. Then I noticed David
    Hurst down by the lake shore. Fortunately, he re-found the bird and photographed it.
    
    I was not able to stay and look for all of the birds I wanted to see this morning, due to family obligations. However, I spent a long time looking for the two female wood ducks along the North Shore, without success.
    
    There was also a streaky prairie falcon that was chasing a band tailed pigeon, when the falcon and the pigeon were attacked by one large female and one small male all-grey adult peregrine falcons. This was also after the Eastern Phoebe location.

  23. Western Field Ornithologist in Pueblo, CO August 16-20, 2017 LINK
    DATE: May 15, 2017 @ 12:41pm, 8 month(s) ago
    From Broad-tailed and Black-chinned Hummingbirds to Mississippi Kites, that’s what we will be finding at WFO’s Annual Conference in Pueblo, Colorado. Do you like Pinyon-Juniper habitat That’s where we find, of course, Pinyon Jays. But even better, last year’s Western Scrub-jay was split, and Colorado’s species is the Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay. And in prairie habitat—look for Curve-billed Thrasher, Greater Roadrunner, Scaled Quail, and maybe Ladder-backed Woodpecker. If you fancy sparrows, listen and look for Cassin’s and Brewer’s Sparrows, along with Green-tailed Towhee. Other woodpeckers can be found in the mountains—Lewis’s, along with Red-naped and Williamson’s Sapsuckers. Other mountain birds are Plumbeous Vireo and Pygmy Nuthatch. Flycatchers include Olive-sided, Dusky, and Cordilleran—(Can you tell a Cordilleran from a Pacific-slope Does it make a difference). You can find Black and Eastern Phoebes, Juniper Titmouse, Cassin’s Kingbird, and Canyon Towhee just west of Pueblo. If all that sounds like exciting birdlife, it is. Don’t miss it! The annual WFO conference is a four day event that includes scientific presentations, workshops, field trips and other workshops. Dr. Lauryn Benedict, an expert on animal communication and social behavior, will be our keynote speaker, speaking on “He Sings, She Sings: Female Songbirds in Your Backyard.” Her main research is of bird song for understanding how signals evolve in nature. To understand song function, she examines how individuals use vocal signals within environmental and social contexts. She also studies larger patterns of song evolution by measuring how songs vary through time and space, both within and between species. Some of her current projects examine the function and evolution of song and duets among Colorado wren species, New World sparrows, and Old World warblers. Lauryn is Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado. Lauryn also will be giving a workshop, “Birds from the Inside Out,” which will focus on how avian anatomy produces identifying characteristics. Furthering our understanding of birdsong, Nathan Pieplow’s workshop is “Identifying Birds by Their Sounds.” Nathan is the author of the recently released Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds of Eastern North America. He also will be presenting his annual “Bird Sound Identification: Team Challenge.” Of course, to learn identification visually, Ed Harper will be presenting his Bird Photo ID Panel.” Other workshops will focus on how to find birds by learning “What do Birds Eat” by entomologist Dave Leatherman, “How to Make, Edit, Share, and Publish Bird Vocalizations” by Ted Floyd, “The Ins and Outs of eBird: from the Basics to Advanced Use and Application,” by Scott Somershoe, and “Identification of Shorebirds,” by Jon Dunn. WFO returns to Colorado for the first time in many years, where there are many species that don’t occur in the Far West, including many species of workshop and field trip leaders! Within Colorado, a wide variety of habitats and species near Pueblo is one of the main reasons this venue was selected for WFO’s annual conference. Another reason is accommodations at the Marriott Hotel. It is located by a walkway to the Pueblo Convention Center, where all activities will be held--workshops, banquet, reception, and exhibitors.

  25. Big LA Bird Count LINK
    DATE: May 1, 2017 @ 12:21pm, 9 month(s) ago
    Dear Birders, The last 3 days was L.A's annual big weekend count.    It used to
    be the annual ABA Birdiest County contest, but at least partly
    because LA did so well each year, the formal competition
    stopped.   To be fair, we have an advantage that while  can't
    count birds from boats, we do have a birder part time on San
    Clemente Island and of course a wide variety of habitats in our
    large area that includes desert and a good mountain range plus
    we're along a major flyway.    Our annual counts have been 239
    from our start in 2003   to a record 277 in 2011.
    Several Counties including L.A. have continued counting including
    Ventura which had around 225 species so far.   Our preliminary
    total is 264.   Not our record but not too shabby!  
    There was also a report of a Willow Flycatcher by Joyce Brady on
    ebird 4/29 along with a picture.   She has others but don't know
    how to reach her.   This would be new to the count as an early
    date.    The photo looks to be a Western Wood-pewee per Kimball
    Garrett (official County Compiler/authority), Lance Benner (count
    oversight) & Jim Pike (OC reporter).   It would be nice to see
    her other pictures if a different angle & light may look
    differently..........   Does anyone know her email     An ebird
    Vesper Sparrow is under review also.
    While over 50 people participated reporting to me directly, Nancy
    Strangy and I culled other reports on ebird, which garnered around
    30 species!    Lance wants to wait a few days for any late reports
    to  ebird, when a final announcement will be sent.    This website
    doesn't allow enclosures so the report such as it is, is below.   
    If you would like a copy of either the preliminary and/or final 3
    page report, please send me a request at
    . Do think about participating next year, from looking out your
    window a bit at home to  a big weekend, or maybe chase
    specialties, when we as always, hope to beat our record of
    277!     Lance puts together a marvelous compendium of the more
    difficult birds and recent area reports that he shares ahead of
    time in case you'd like to chase.   Watch here for more info in
    late April! Wanda Dameron
