   Nazca Booby (Sula granti) - NABO (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records)

  1. Illegal Nazca captured, caged by ICE LINK
    DATE: Aug 8, 2018 @ 10:47am, 9 day(s) ago
    Birders, [Given Yahoo Groups issues, I dont expect most people will see this for hours or days, if ever] Becky Turleys eBird list from Leo Carrillo at 5:00 to 5:30 pm yesterday (7 August) indicates that the Nazca Booby (which strayed without documentation into the U. S. from Ecuador, Colombia, Mexico or.) was captured and taken to a rehab
    facility around 5:30 by a Marine Mammal Rescue team (yes, I know a booby is not a marine mammal just passing along the information). So the bird is no longer available for viewing at Leo Carrillo. This news would have been useful last night, but again
    Yahoo groups just hasnt been working. 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

    All,
    
    Another way to get out word somewhat quickly is to post the observation into eBird. Many eBird users have their rare bird alerts set to provide updates within an hour of when the observations are submitted, and obviously this is completely independent of the county listserve.

    Chris,
    
    Can we individually ask you to add us to this new LA County bird email list, or is there a way I can do that by going to the site (I haven't tried it yet, and didn't need to for the other email lists e.g. Orange County Birds, because those list owners and administrators did the heavy lifting for us).

I never received my own email back from LACoBirds and never received Chris's email about the Booby. Her first email about the Craveri's arrived at night. What I did yesterday when writing the Nazca Booby email was I Cc'd as many people as I could think of, assuming they would forward my email to others.

  15. RE: [venturacobirding] Nazca Booby at Ventura County line beach LINK
    DATE: Aug 6, 2018 @ 10:13am, 11 day(s) ago
    Birders, Dave Perekstas post about this bird on Calbirds at 9:56 a.m. says:
    Nazca is on the beach across from the Neptune's Net restaurant. It was preening when I got here and apparently ate a fish just before that, but it is now laying down. Not sure if it is healthy. We are keeping people and dogs away, but may want to get
    here soon. Dave Pereksta Ventura Not that birders necessarily care what county a bird is in, but in this case I wanted to point out that the beach at Neptunes Net is 1.10 to 0.85 miles west
    of the Los Angeles/Ventura County line (depending on which end of the beach the bird is occupying). So L. A. County enthusiasts will need to see the bird flying a fair distance east to record it in the county.

  25. Masked/Nazca Booby off Point Dume LINK
    DATE: May 12, 2018 @ 2:26pm, 3 month(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    This morning (12 May) around 0940 hr. I watched a very distant immature Masked/Nazca Booby -- it was observed from the platform on the outer point as I was scoping ESE (toward where Palos Verdes would have been if it weren't for the low clouds). At first
    it was on the water, but it got up to join a small feeding flock of gulls, cormorant and loons around a group of common dolphins. I lost track of it soon thereafter.
    
    The bird had a dark brown head and neck contrasting with a white upper back, a dark lower back, a white lower rump and upper tail coverts, a mostly dark tail with whitish in the central rectrices, dark wings with lots of white mottling on the upperwing coverts,
    and white breast and belly. I couldn't tell anything about bill color from the distance of observations. I don't know of this is a second year bird or, perhaps more likely, a third-year bird. All of these details were discerned with the scope cranked up
    to 50-60x.
    
    There wasn't a great deal of activity off Pt. Dume otherwise -- 4 Sooty Shearwaters, 2 Pink-footed Shearwaters, a flock of 10 Brant, a flock of 4 Cattle Egrets, etc. At least 115 Bonaparte's Gulls were at the mouth of Zuma Creek.
    
    In other news, there was a basic-plumaged Pacific Loon on the main lake at Hansen Dam around 0730 this morning.

    A CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was at the West San Gabriel River Parkway Nature Trail from September 10-12.  It was about 300-400 feet south of Monte Verde Park.  A GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE was at the south end of the Nature
    Trail on September 11.
     
    Another CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was at Arcadia County Park on September 15.
     
    An immature BLACK-THROATED SPARROW was along the San Gabriel River opposite Encanto Park in Duarte on September 12.  It was on the east side of the river around the fenced concrete drainage channel (accessed by crossing

  29. Palos Verdes Peninsula CBC LINK
    DATE: Dec 12, 2015 @ 8:38pm, 3 year(s) ago
    Hi all,
    
    Just in case anyone is interested...
    
    The Palos Verdes Peninsula CBC is Sunday Dec. 27.
    As always they could use some more eyes. If you
    can help please call David Moody at 310-803-0396.
    There are a lot of juicy parks in the area to
    bird, not to mention spectacular sea watching,
    coastal sage scrub, the canyons, and plenty of
    Euc forests, often with wintering goodies.
    
    The PVP CBC has a long history of turning up some
    top shelf rarities, from the state's 2nd Little Gull
    (Rusty Scalf) to the first ever CA (and likely N.A.)
    wintering Mourning Warbler and Philadelphia Vireo
    (both moi). One year Jess Morton saw an orange-billed
    Masked Booby, which may have been the first reported
    Nazca Booby in the state.
    
    The birding Gods smile on those that help.
    ;)
    Good counting to all,
