  1. Re: [LACoBirds] Neotropic Cormorant candidate, L A River in Atwater LINK
    DATE: Aug 11, 2018 @ 8:47am, 6 day(s) ago
    In Texas the birds that look like this are called Neotropic Cormorants.
    
    I don't see anything out of the normal range of variation on it.

  3. Re: [LACoBirds] Neotropic Cormorant candidate, L A River in Atwater LINK
    DATE: Aug 10, 2018 @ 5:00pm, 7 day(s) ago
    After some unsuccessful lunch time searching at various points along the river, I went back to work but fortunately, a little later Chris Dean relocated the Neotropic on the wires below Sunnynook bridge and I went back out to join her. It was with a Double-crested and gave a good comparison of it's noticeably smaller size, bill and comparatively long tail.

    Birders, This morning (10 August) from 0945 to1005 I studied a cormorant along the Los Angeles River near the Sunnynook Bridge (below Los Feliz) that is a good match for a Neotropic Cormorant. In fact, it was pretty typical of the many that I see regularly at the
    south end of the Salton Sea, though I was bothered a bit by the shape of the gular patch (and white feathered border) which was not especially pointed at the rear. Otherwise, it was long-tailed, small-billed, lacked any yellow in the dark feathered lores,
    and was clearly smaller than the one Double-crested that was near it when I first found it. It seems to be a second-year bird and is showing some molt in the wings and tail. It was on a rock about 50 m downstream in the soft-bottom channel below Los Feliz, then flew, landing a bit farther down channel. When it flew again it landed on one of the cables that cross the river just below the Sunnynook Bridge, and was still there
    when I left. Here's a link to my eBird checklist -- opinions welcome. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S47763744 Kimball Kimball L.

    Has anyone seen any of these
    
    There's still at least one birdathon team that has yet to report, and more species could appear in eBird from people who don't subscribe to the listserves, so our total could grow.
    
    Thank you,

    DATE: Apr 28, 2018 @ 9:55pm, 4 month(s) ago
    Common Tern (black outer web of outer rectrices easy to see, hard to photograph in flight)among the multiple Forster’s Terns at Puddingstone Reservoir/Bonelli Regional Park, around 5:30 p.m.Good looks at it, but no photos. I scanned
    all over the reservoir for the Neotropic Cormorant, but no. There was afemale Purple Martin at the weedy, scrubby patch of trees between the jungle trail and the grove of tall eucalyptus at the far eastern of the north shore parking. The eucalypti there
    were hopping with warblers, and a Lawrence’s Goldfinch.

    Some of the missing pelagic species were seen today from a boat, but unfortunately we can't count them.
    
    Attempts to find American dippers on the Barrett-Stoddard Road creek and on the West Fork of the San Gabriel River came up empty.There was also a search at Hidden Springs off Angeles Forest Highway yesterday.That species is proving to be more difficult
    than usual this year.
    
    Here are species reported recently that we've never gotten before (and don't have yet this weekend):
