  3. eBird and continuing wintering rarities, spring arrivals LINK
    DATE: Mar 21, 2018 @ 11:11am, 2 month(s) ago
    Birders,   As wintering birds depart, it is important to have good documentation of the length of stay of wintering rarities in the area (e.g. Pine Warblers, Dusky-capped Flycatchers, Eastern Phoebes, Rusty Blackbirds, etc.).  We are aware of too
    many cases where a rarity is listed in eBird with only the comment “continuing” after the bird had actually departed.  Therefore, we encourage observers to provide good documentation (photos, written descriptions) for each sighting of these birds from now
    until their departure.  We’d really like to know final dates as accurately as possible for these wintering birds, and since we can’t predict which date will be the “last,” we need documentation each time.   In a similar vein, arrival dates for spring migrants and summering birds should be documented as well.  Obviously many species have already arrived in good numbers (most swallows, Hooded and Bullock’s Orioles, Warbling Vireos, Western Kingbirds,
    etc.).  But we need good documentation for first arrivals from here on out – Black-chinned Hummingbirds, Willow Flycatchers, Olive-sided Flycatchers, Western Wood-Pewees, Flammulated Owls, Swainson’s Thrushes, Black-chinned Sparrows, Blue Grosbeaks, etc. 
    Please make the effort to enter as much documentation as possible in eBird with your fist spring sightings of these species, even if the sightings haven’t tripped the filters to require documentation.
    
    Thanks,   Kimball   Kimball L. Garrett Ornithology Collections Manager Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County 900 Exposition Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90007 USA (213) 763-3368 kgarrett@... http://www.nhm.org/site/research-collections/ornithology

  29. Scott's Oriole Bonelli LINK
    DATE: Jan 6, 2018 @ 9:48am, 5 month(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.
