  5. America's Birdiest County Results: 264 Species LINK
    DATE: May 11, 2017 @ 3:05pm, 5 month(s) ago
    Greetings Everyone,
    
    This is the final summary for America's Birdiest County in Los Angeles in 2017.
    
    First, I want to extend a huge thank you to Wanda Dameron, who graciously stepped forward to compile the count this year. She put in a lot of hard work but had fun and learned a lot.
    
    The final total in 2017 was 264 species. After the last update, we subtracted some species due to lack of documentation, added American Goldfinch that I had somehow missed, added Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron from El Dorado Park that was reported on April 30 (with a photo) in eBird, and added a northern watherthrush seen at Malibu Creek on April 29.
    
    How does our total compare with results from previous years
    
    America's Birdiest County totals for Los Angeles County since 2003:
    Year Total
    2017 264
    2016 270
    2015 275
    2014 272
    2013 265
    2012 262
    2011 277
    2010 271
    2009 264
    2008 255
    2007 271
    2006 263 Format changed from one day to three days; more organization
    2005 246
    2004 239
    2003 239
    
    Average from 2003-present: 262.2 +- 12.2 Updated to include 2017
    
    Our total in 2017 was two species above our long-term average of 262.
    
    Finding 264 species takes a lot of effort, and we got that many because a lot of very dedicated and knowledgeable people went into the field on April 28-30 and covered the vast majority of the most important locations for birds across the county. This resulted in excellent coverage at the Piute Ponds, Bonelli Park, the Ballona/Playa de Rey area, Hansen Dam, Quail Lake, for seawatches from Point Vicente and San Clemente Islan, and in the San Gabriel Mountains. There were also three Pasadena Audubon Birdathon teams in the field on Saturday and Sunday who tallied 200+ species.
    
    Nevertheless, we struggled to find some rarities that had apparently left within a few days of the count, and we struggled with some wintering birds that are often still in the area (examples include Hooded Merganser and Lewis' Woodpecker). Some birds we usually get relatively easily simply aren't here right now such as Heermann's Gull and Pine Siskin.
    
    We had to contend with a Santa Ana wind storm on Friday and Saturday. This is the fourth consecutive year that wind has been a factor, although in 2014, 2015, and 2016 it also rained.
    
    Previous America's Birdiest County winners:
    ...discontinued after 2011...
    2011 277 Los Angeles
    2010 271 Los Angeles
    2009 264 Los Angeles
    2008 255 Los Angeles
    2007 271 Los Angeles
    2006 263 Los Angeles
    2005 250 Monterey and San Diego (tie)
    2004 266 San Diego
    2003 248 Monterey
    
    America's Birdiest County was a one-day event during its first three years. Starting in 2006, the format changed to three days. 2006 is also the first year that we really got organized in Los Angeles County and that accounts for the distinct uptick in the number of species that year relative to the first three years.
    
    We added one new species this year:
    Yellow-Crowned Night Heron
    
    How does one new species in 2017 compare with results from previous years Here are the number of new species that we've added since 2010:
    2017 1
    2016 5
    2015 4
    2014 5
    2013 3
    2012 5
    2011 7
    2010 5
    Our recent history of adding a few species annually suggests there are still new species to find in future years. Given the near misses we have every year, it may be several more years before we run out of new ones.
    
    Here are the species that we FOUND in 2017:

    04 11 11 11 11 ........not countable........ Scaly-breasted Munia
    
    Total: 333 species
    
    If you look closely you'll see that we flagged willow flycatcher and black swift as "suspect." We no longer believe earlier records of Willow Flycatcher and Black Swift because those species don't usually occur before the end of the first week of May and because we neglected to request documentation when they were reported in 2004-2007.
    
    Of the 333 species we've found to date, we have found the same 208 during every year, accounting for about 80% of our annual total. We have also found 34 species only once, indicating that about 10% are "one-hit wonders." Examples from previous years include yellow-billed loon, field sparrow, ruff, and red-throated pipit. There are also numerous species that we find about 1/2 of the time, probably a consequence of the fact that we schedule the event in late April when wintering birds are leaving and when many spring migrants are just arriving.
    
    This year we did pretty well with ocean birds. This was one of the only the fifth time in 15 years that we've gotten three shearwater species. We also got one alcid, which usually give us trouble. Seawatches from San Clemente Island and Point Vicente were fruitful despite the strong winds on Friday and Saturday around the county.
    
    We also did better than usual in the Antelope Valley, foothills, and in the San Gabriel Mountains.
    
    In more detail, if you scan through the table above, you'll see that we swept up a number of species this year that we find less than 1/2 of the time. Here are species we found that were particularly notable:
    06 Black-Vented Shearwater
    01 Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron NEW
    02 Bald Eagle
    07 Franklin's Gull
    05 Common Murre
    04 Long-Eared Owl
    05 Vermilion Flycatcher
    06 Purple Martin
    05 Golden-Crowned Kinglet
    02 Northern Waterthrush
    03 Harris' sparrow
    
    Once again, the number in the first two columns gives the number of years when we have found this species since 2004. These are species reported during seven or fewer counts except for Scaly-Breasted Munia, which was recently added to the offical count list. Bald eagle is a species we didn't count previously due to concerns that they required human assistance for nesting. The presence of a nest at the San Gabriel Dam clearly establishes that they're nesting without our help and that our previous approach was too conservative.
    
    Among these species, the most unusual was the Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron, which was new for ABC weekend. The Harris' sparrow is obviously rare but its presence was known well in advance. The northern waterthrush was a very pleasant surprise: this was only the second time we've found one during the count.
    
    On the other hand, although this is only the fifth time we've found vermilion flycatcher, it's also the fourth consecutive year that we've found it. When compiling the list of possible rarities prior to the weekend, it became apparent that vermilion flycatchers are now being reported widely across Los Angeles County, so their numbers are clearly increasing. This appears to represent an actual expansion of their range.
    
    Here are the worst misses from 2017:
    12 Cattle Egret
    12 Long-Billed Curlew
    13 Heermann's Gull
    12 Herring Gull
    10 Lewis' Woodpecker
    11 Ladder-Backed Woodpecker
    11 Merlin
    12 Pine Siskin
    
    This is the first time that we've missed Heermann's Gull. That species has been scarce in our area recently, perhaps because most of the adults have left for the breeding grounds in Mexico, and possibly also because of three consecutive years of breeding failure. One (but only one) Heermann's gull was reported on a pelagic trip on April 29, but the ABC rules prevent us from counting birds seen from boats.
    
    In addition, something is going on with pine siskins. This was the most significant species from the mountains that we missed. There are very few reports in eBird in the local mountains of Los Angeles Cou

  13. America's Birdiest County April 28-30: Detailed Information LINK
    DATE: Apr 24, 2017 @ 11:50am, 6 month(s) ago
    Hi Everyone,
    
    Here's additional information about the "America's Birdiest County" event that will happen in Los Angeles County on April 28-30.
    
    The count starts at midnight on Thursday night/Friday morning and ends at midnight on Sunday night/Monday morning.
    
    The objective is to find as many species in Los Angeles County over this three day interval as possible. We've been doing this since 2003 and regularly find more than 260 species.
    
    Birds can be identified by sight or sound, and as usual, rare species require documentation. All birds must be counted from land, so we can't accept anything seen on a whale watch, or from a boat on a lake, but we'd be glad to count any birds seen from Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands or from seawatches at places such as Point Vicente and Point Dume.
    
    This year I will be out of town on Saturday and Sunday, so I will not act as the compiler. Intead, Wanda Dameron has kindly stepped forward and volunteered to compile this year's count. Please send emails with reports to her and/or post them on the LA County listserve.
    
    Wanda's email address is:
    
    wandadameron2@...
    
    HISTORY
    
    America's Birdiest County started in 2003 in San Diego as a friendly competition among counties across the country to see how many species people could find in a single 24-hour period.
    
    After the first three years, the organizers changed the protocol to make it a three-day event. There were also various categories across the country to try to level the playing field so that counties in very different areas wouldn't be competing against those in other areas that have vastly more birds. Thus, counties in, say, Maine weren't competing against counties in California. Los Angeles was in the "Coastal West" category and our chief competition, at least initially, was with San Diego and Monterey. After the format changed to a three-day event, Monterey stopped competing in order to continue their traditional one-day county-wide birdathon. After 2011, the organizers discontinued the nationwide event, but selected counties continued due to strong local interest. Los Angeles and Kern Counties, which usually did very well, have both continued, and recently Orange and Ventura Counties have started similar events around the same time. This year San Bernardino County started a count and had reported more than 230 species as of Sunday night.
    
    Here are the number of species found in Los Angeles County since 2003:
    Year Total
    2016 270
    2015 275
    2014 272
    2013 265
    2012 262
    2011 277
    2010 271
    2009 264
    2008 255
    2007 272
    2006 265
    2005 246
    2004 240
    2003 239
    
    Our total jumped in 2006 due to better organization and increased interest.
    
    This event has turned into an intensive sweep of the whole county each spring, and has provided a useful snapshot of the species that are present in late April. Many people who participate also record their observations in eBird, and as a result, tens of thousands of birds sightings are permanently archived, so in addition to having fun, we're also making a scientifically useful contribution.

    LOGISTICS
    
    Please email reports to Wanda at wandadameron2@... and/or to the LA County listserve.
    
    We welcome forwarding eBird checklists--they make checking for new species really easy.
    The easiest way to do this is to email the eBird list to yourself and then forward it to Wanda.
    
    Wanda will provide updates two to four times each day to track our progress and to help guide searches for species we're missing. The first update will probably happen by early afternoon on Friday. We will also provide updates each night so that we everyone can see what we still need first thing in the morning.
    
    Please note that we can't count birds seen from boats, but birds seen from Santa Catalina and San Clemente Island count. Also, the Gambel's quail and chukars on San Clemente Island are self-sustaining so we can count them. Also, to continue the protocol we adopted last year, we are now glad to count bald eagles seen from Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands.
    
    ######################################
    
    NON-NATIVE SPECIES:
    
    Kimball Garrett asks us to please report established non-native species even if they're not the list that's accepted by the AOU or the CBRC.
    
    This means that we want to hear about introduced species such as parakeets and parrots, pin-tailed whydahs, orange bishops, red-whiskered bulbuls, Mandarin ducks, and so forth. Monitoring those populations is becoming increasingly important so please report them, and, of course, enter your sightings into eBird.
    
    We'll keep them in a supplemental list separate from the "regular" species.
    
    ######################################
    
    RARE OR UNCOMMON SPECIES
    
    We've been keeping track of some notable species that have been in the area
    recently. Some are truly rare but others are regular winter visitors that become
    scarce and challenging to find in late April. Below is a partial list; we're sure
    there are some things that we missed. Please note that some of these species have
    not been found during previous ABC weekends, and for some birds it's been a few
    weeks since we've seen reports in eBird, on the listserve, or in various rare bird alerts.

    SPECIES PREVIOUSLY RECORDED
    
    Below is the master list of every species we've found during previous ABC weekends.
    
    There are some species that we get regularly that are actually quite local and require special effort to find and/or that are just leaving or arriving at this time of year . Among them, in no particular order, are prairie falcon, American dipper, common ground-dove, Inca dove, spotted owl, northern saw-whet owl, northern pygmy owl, flammulated owl, burrowing owl, golden-crowned kinglet, Le Conte's thrasher, Williamson's sapsucker, red crossbill, Swainson's hawk, common merganser, hooded merganser, summer tanager, and golden eagle.
    
    We often struggle to find pelagic species; alcids are particularly difficult.
    
    The table below lists every species we've recorded during the ABC weekend since 2004 and the number of years in which we've found it.
    
    N = number of years we've found a species from 2004-present.

    This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for February 24.
    
    A TUNDRA SWAN was at Pierce College in Woodland Hills from February 19-23. It has been in the fields south of El Rancho Drive.
    
    A female EURASIAN WIGEON is being seen at Oxford Basin in Marina del Rey. It was reported there though February 21. Low tide appears to be the best time to look for it.
     A “EURASIAN” GREEN-WINGED TEAL continues along the LA River adjacent to the Bette Davis Picnic Area in Glendale. It was reported through February 20.
    
    A first cycle ICELAND GULL was found at the Rio Hondo spreading basins at the west end of Mines Ave. on February 18. Two LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS (both an adult and an immature have been present)
    continued off and on at the basins through February 20. The also irregular YELLOW-FOOTED GULL was seen again on February 20.
     The gulls have mostly been in the basin below Washington Blvd. Afternoons are best and Sundays should be avoided (as the nearby landfill that attracts gulls is not operating). To reach the
    basin south of Washington Blvd., take Paramount to Canford and turn west. There is access here through a
    
    hole in the fence.
    
    A second cycle SLATY-BACKED GULL at the Rio Hondo spreading basins was last seen there on February 11. More recently it was spotted at Junipero Beach in Long Beach (near Shoreline Drive) on
    February 19.
    
    A HAMMOND’S FLYCATCHER continued at Valley Plaza Park in North Hollywood through February 21.

    through Sunday.
    
    Up to five VERMILION FLYCATCHERS have seen at Oakdale Memorial Park in Glendora through February 20.
    
    The continuing DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER at Creek Park in La Mirada was reported in and near the eucalyptus grove south of Las Flores Ave and north of Imperial Highway through February 20.
    
    The TROPICAL KINGBIRD at the Earvin Magic Johnson Recreation Area in Willowbrook continued through February 20. The island in the south lake is a good spot to check, as well as adjacent areas.
    
    After going unreported for some time, the wintering THICK-BILLED KINGBIRD at Horsethief Canyon Park in San Dimas was seen again on February 19 and also through February 21. It tends to favor
    the wooded ravine just west of the dog park, but can move widely around the area. The entrance road may be gated after storms, but the road can be walked, with parking available near the San Dimas Nature Center.
     A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at La Mirada Community Regional Park on February 20. It was inside the Splash! property.
    
    The PAINTED REDSTART at The Estates Condominiums in Rolling Hills Estates was reported through February 21 around building 3604.
    
    A CLAY-COLORED SPARROW continued at the Rose Garden in Exposition Park in Los Angeles through February 18.
    A SWAMP SPARROW continued along the Playa Vista Riparian Corridor below Loyola Marymount University through February 23. It is being seen near the hillside concrete drainage channel adjacent to the end of Village
    Drive.
    
    A WHITE-THROATED SPARROW continued through February 23 at the LA County Arboretum in Arcadia on the northeast slope of Tallac Knoll in the southwest corner of the property.
    
    
    A HARRIS’S SPARROW was found along Thompson Creek Trail in Claremont on February 22 (but reportedly present before then). It was seen again on February 23. To reach the exact location,
    drive to the very north end of Indian Hill Blvd. in Claremont. There is a free parking lot to the left. Walk east about one half mile along the Thompson Creek Trail by the water channel. The first feeding
    station can be seen on the right by a bench and drinking fountain. There are bird feeders and a solar panel water dish on the ground. Walk about one more block to Pomello Ave. (closed to parking) where there is a locked large metal yellow gate to your left.
    Slip past it at the channel, and just to the right is the second feeding station which the Harris's seems to prefer.
    
    A SUMMER TANAGER was at a residence in the La Canada area in February 18.
    
    A BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK was at a feeder in Trancas Canyon on February 17.
    
    The female ORCHARD ORIOLE at the LA County Arboretum in Arcadia continued through February 21. It has been in the Aloe Garden (just northwest of the entrance complex). It especially favors
    the Kei Apple Trees, but if missed there check other flowering plants in the vicinity.
    
    A male SCOTT’S ORIOLE was at Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas on February 20 and 21. It was seen from Group Picnic Area 4.
