   Heermann's Gull (Larus heermanni) - HEEG (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. Cabrillo Yellow-crowned Night-Heron continues; White-faced Ibis; juv Heermann's Gulls LINK
    DATE: Sep 19, 2018 @ 10:30pm, 32 day(s) ago
    At 6:03pm today (Sep 19), I saw the juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
    perched on a wooden post at the edge of the main walkway of the Cabrillo
    Salt Marsh. It was easily viewable even from outside (through the
    chain-link fence). So far, it has been there every day I've checked,
    since the initial sighting on Sep 11.
    
    Also, a White-faced Ibis was on the inner beach today from 5:18pm
    to 5:52pm, foraging at the shoreline. I was quite stunned by this, as
    I've never seen this species here before (and there are no reports on
    eBird of any in the Cabrillo area, either). It seemed to be startled by
    the waves a few times, jumping up, as if perhaps unfamiliar with this
    type of habitat.
    
    Also on the inner beach at 5:18pm were 7 hatch-year Heermann's Gulls.
    That's the most I've seen so far this year (previously the maximum was
    3).

  3. American Oystercatcher continues LINK
    DATE: Sep 8, 2018 @ 2:59am, 44 day(s) ago
    The juvenile AMOY was present on the big rock (33.7171N,118.3226W) at
    Royal Palms Beach near the lifeguard station both on Thursday and Friday
    (Sep 6-7) along with a bunch of BLOYs (Black Oystercatchers). I have
    gotten the impression that it is most likely to be there during high
    tide, and uses this location primarily as a roosting spot rather than
    foraging (though it does a bit of that), and that the oystercatchers
    disperse for actual foraging.
    
    On Sep 6, I watched the big rock from 13:25 to 14:00, seeing no sign of
    the AMOY. At that point, two birders told me they had seen the AMOY 10
    minutes earlier (so presumably at 13:50) further up the coast (west,
    around 33.7188N,118.3250W) but then it flown further up the coast
    (west). So, I start a long trek along the rocky shore, going all the way
    to 33.72547N,118.34160W (1.1 miles; it felt longer than that due to the
    lack of smooth walkways) before going up the switchback path. There were
    TONS of Rock Wrens along that 1.1 mile stretch of rocky shore; I estimate
    at least 12 (I took audio notes, due to carrying a tripod
    and not having free hands to take keyboard-typed notes as I normally do,
    so I won't be able to total up an exact count until transcribing the
    audio notes) . (Also notable was seeing 23 Snowy Egrets, 8 Ravens,
    and a Western Gull feeding together on a single stretch of kelp below the
    aforementioned switchback path.) Then, I walked Ocean Trails for a while
    (including checking out the lake) before heading back towards Royal Palms
    Beach (staying at high elevation rather than going back along the beach).
    I finally returned to the Royal Palms big rock at 17:51. The AMOY was
    there when I arrived, along with 8 BLOY. All the oystercatchers flew away
    together at 18:40.
    
    On Sep 7, the AMOY was already there (on the big rock) when I arrived at
    15:45, along with at least 5 BLOY. It was there until 17:10, during which
    both it and the BLOYs moved around a lot (on the big rock). It must have
    flown away when I wasn't looking, because it returned (in flight) at
    17:18. I looked away again, to adjust my tripod, and it was gone; it must
    have flown away again. Also notable on this day was seeing 3 hatch-year
    Heermann's Gulls (HEEG) on the big rock (amongst plenty more adults); I
    think these may be the same individuals I sometimes see at Cabrillo
    Beach, because I haven't seen the hatch-year HEEGs much at Cabrillo
    lately.
    
    In other news: The Eurasian Collared-Doves have continued to gather on the wires
    behind the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in the evenings, but I have not seen
    a White-winged Dove again since my initial (Sep 2) report. A Yellow-fronted Canary (presumed escapee) sang in the palm tree at
    33.70977N,118.28599W on Sep 5 from 17:53 to 18:02 then flew away. David Ellsworth

  5. White-winged Dove at Cabrillo Beach; LBCUs; BNST LINK
    DATE: Sep 3, 2018 @ 4:28pm, 48 day(s) ago
    Similarly to previous years, yesterday (2018-09-02) evening a large
    number of Eurasian Collared-Doves (EUCD) gathered on the power lines and
    pine trees behind (south of) the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. At 18:02 there
    were 6 on the power lines, 2 in a pine tree, and 1 White-winged
    Dove (WWDO) in that same pine tree. By 18:22, 23 EUCDs had gathered
    (3-4 in pine trees and the rest on power lines) and the WWDO was still at
    the same pine perch. The WWDO flew away at 18:27.
    
    The Long-billed Curlew presence at Cabrillo Beach has been exceptional
    this year:

    2018-06-23 10:50 - 11:03, at Cabrillo outer beach
    
    2018-08-15 19:22 - 19:34, at Cabrillo outer beach (flew away, very very
    far away to the east and very slightly north)
    
    2018-08-16 13:35, at Cabrillo outer beach
    
    2018-08-29 08:00 - 08:59+, at Cabrillo outer beach
    
    I would be very curious to know if something in particular is causing
    this, or if it's only a statistical blip. I personally have only seen one
    twice before at Cabrillo Beach (2009-03-29 at the inner beach, and
    2015-06-23 in the salt marsh), and judging from this together with ebird
    records, in the previous 10 years there's been an average of 1.5
    sightings here per year, with 3 in 2009, 2012, 2014, and 2015, and 1 in
    2010, 2016, and 2017.
    
    A Black-necked Stilt was on the Cabrillo outer beach for a very long time
    yesterday (2018-09-02), from 10:58 to 11:27 and probably well beyond. The
    most extraordinary aspect of this for me was that there were lots of
    people on the beach, many of them constantly walking and running back and
    forth along the shore, and the BNST never flew away during the entire
    time I watched; it only flew back and forth to avoid the people, never
    leaving the area the whole time I watched. It was at times eating what I
    think were flies. I have only once before seen BNST(s) at Cabrillo Beach,
    on 2012-12-05, when there were two adults and one full-size juvenile, and
    they were not foraging, just standing around mostly.
    
    There are no more hatch-year Heermann's Gulls (HEEG) at Cabrillo Beach
    than there were last year. As I posted then, there were 10 hatch-years on
    2017-07-19. This year, I have seen no more than 3; however, the peak
    numbers are perhaps not directly comparable, since around 2017-07-19
    there was an enormous kelp deposit on the outer beach, and this year not
    as much. As for how many there are most days, it's pretty similar; last
    year it was often 2, and this year often 2. I still often see the two
    from last year this year as well, now in second-year plumage (sometimes
    on the same days that 2 hatch-years are also present). There have been no
    third-year HEEGs at all.

  7. Third-cycle Heermann's Gull LINK
    DATE: Jul 7, 2018 @ 3:57pm, 4 month(s) ago
    I arrived at ShoreLine Aquatic Park on bicycle at 4:54pm (July 4), at
    which point the Guadalupe Murrelet was apparently already long gone
    (later confirmed by reading Tom Miko's post). Of course I tried anyway,
    but to no avail so I took enjoyment at what I could find, including 3
    Brown Pelicans (BRPE), 3 Snowy Egrets, 1 Great Blue Heron and 1 juvenile
    Black-crowned Night-Heron all perched on one boat. I noticed an instance
    of mild BRPE aggression for the first time (in my previous experience
    they've aways been total gentle giants for example letting Heermann's
    Gulls follow them around like pets), in which an almost-adult raised its
    wings and bobbed its head to let an adjacent younger BRPE know that it
    felt annoyed by it (perhaps because that younger one had just suddenly
    playfully chewed on part of the boat); the immature BRPE took the hint
    and side-stepped 12+ feet away from it along the rail on which they were
    all standing (which also caused a Snowy Egret also to have to scoot
    further along on it).
    
    Then I decided to bird along the beach for a while (apparently called
    Junipero Beach). First thing I noticed was that there's a lot more
    Heermann's Gulls (HEEG) and California Gulls there now, compared to
    Cabrillo Beach. A small number of the HEEGs were 2nd-cycle (just like at
    Cabrillo), but mostly they were adult in breeding plumage (with a very
    small number just beginning to molt into nonbreeding plumage).
    
    Most interestingly, a third of a mile short of (WNW of) Belmost Pier, at
    33.75979N,118.15341W, was a 3rd-cycle (two year old) HEEG. Well, 2016
    was the year HEEGs had an extremely unsuccessful breeding season, and
    nobody (as far as I know) found any juvenile HEEGs. And now one has shown
    up that must have hatched on that year.

    (Bicycling back home on July 4 evening without having
    brought any earplugs turned out to be a very bad idea, given that I'm
    trying very hard to preserve the hearing I still have left. But I did get
    home just in time to video the entire official Cabrillo Beach
    fireworks show.)
    
    Please correct me if I'm wrong and this is just an adult with a
    way-off-track molting schedule. But I am pretty sure it's a 3rd-cycle
    bird.
    
    Also, did anyone end up finding any hatch-year HEEGs in 2016 I certainly
    did not.
    
    And has anyone else found 3rd-cycle HEEGs this year This is my
    first.

  9. Re: [LACoBirds] Continuing Brant, Pacific Loon, Willow Flycatcher & more (San Pedro) LINK
    DATE: May 29, 2018, 5 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

    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).

    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.

    I just went down to Cabrillo Beach, and as of 9:15am, the Brant

    "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.

    DATE: May 29, 2018, 5 month(s) ago
    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
    
    Photos still to come later.

  17. ABC Update: 263 Species LINK
    DATE: Apr 30, 2018, 6 month(s) ago
    Hi Everyone,
    
    As of Monday night, our total is 263 species, which is one above our long-term average dating back to 2003.The new species were brant and short-billed dowitcher found by Team Irritable Owl Syndrome (Mark Scheel, Janet Scheel, Darren Dowell, and John Garrett) during their big day, and chukar, which was reported on San Clemente Island.
    
    It's possible that more species could appear in eBird, so I'm going to hold off on circulating a big summary email for about a week just in case new reports materialize.
    
    Here's the list of everything that we FOUND this past wekend:

    Hi Everyone,
    
    A number of reports have come in and we've added some species.Since the last update we have added:

  29. ABC Update: 238 species LINK
    DATE: Apr 28, 2018 @ 11:46am, 6 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
