  5. Northern Waterthrush at Piute LINK
    DATE: May 12, 2018 @ 10:56am, 13 day(s) ago
    There was a Northern Waterthrush at Piute ponds (permit required) today. The bird was singing and very easily seen for the 10 minutes I watched it. It might stick for a bit in that spot.
    
    It was at the concrete spillway where water can exit big Piute. This spot is along Ave C just before it turns south.

    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, 27 day(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.
