    The basins are west of the river between Whittier and Washington (easy access is at the east end of Mines Ave. east of Passons Blvd.). Late morning or afternoon
    generally seems to be better for gulls here.
    
    Another LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, presumably the same adult bird previously seen at the San Gabriel Coastal Basin
    Spreading Grounds, was at the Rio Hondo basins (at the opposite- west- end of Mines Ave.) on January 17. Also at the Rio Hondo basins (visible from Canford St.) was a first cycle GLAUCOUS GULL from January 17-19
     An immature YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was at Topanga Beach Lagoon from January 14-17.
    
    A probable ZONE-TAILED HAWK was over the Verdugo Hills (seen from Beaudry North Motorway) on January 13.

    playground and around the blue water fountain also through January 17.
    
    An ASH-THROATED FYCATCHER was at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Los Angeles on January 13.
    
    The SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER along the lower LA River in Long Beach was present through January 15. Check West 21 st Street (especially around street number 850-851) near San
    Francisco Avenue and in this general area from here to the river.

    Google Earth coordinates for the exact spot are 33.76518, -118.24874.
    
    Continuing Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas was a SWAMP SPARROW on the north side of the lake through January 12. It is being seen near the small (usually dry) pond east of the small green
    pier. Near here (on the north edge of the eucalyptus lined square parking lot) a “RED” FOX SPARROW was found on January 13.
     Also continuing at Bonelli was an AMERICAN REDSTART and NORTHERN PARULA. These birds are near the extreme northeast part of the lake accessed from the “jungle trail”. They are usually seen
    in an oak and an ash tree along the eastern edge of the lake inflow channel. In this vicinity is a continuing PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER.
    
    WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS continued at Montrose Community Park along the fence line above the ball fields through January 16 and south and east of the Old Zoo area at Griffith Park through
    January 18.
    
    The RUSTY BLACKBIRD continued around the lower pond at Almansor Park in Alhambra through January 17. A CACKLING GOOSE is present as well.

  11. Re: [LACoBirds] Sage Thrasher in Wilmington (18 Jan.) LINK
    DATE: Jan 19, 2018 @ 8:41am, 30 day(s) ago
    Hi Doug and LACoBirders.
    
    I saw what must have been the same Sage Thrasher on 30 December and 6 January. Both times it was on the chainlink fence surrounding a gravel lot on the northwest corner of Anchorage Rd. and Shore Rd. 
    
    The shrike was on the fence along the southeastern edge of a small pond on the east side of Shore Rd. on 30 December; I could not find it on 6 January. I have still not seen the Tree Sparrow...
    
    Take care,

      (I apologize if there may duplicate postings on this, but tried to send by email earlier in the evening and didn't see it go through.)
    On Thursday   afternoon
    (18 January) I ran across a Sage Thrasher while conducting some work in the
    Port of LA area.   More specifically this
    seems to be along the southern edge of Wilmington.   If interested, for those that may have looked
    for the Eurasian Tree Sparrow last year, the location is about 0.35 miles
    further west along Anchorage Road.  
    (Anchorage Road begins at the southern terminus of N. Henry Ford Ave.,
    which is accessed from Alameda St. (SR-47), just under 3 miles from
    I-405.)   From where Anchorage Rd. begins
    at the south end of N. Henry Ford Ave., proceed west on Anchorage for a half
    mile, passing Shore Rd. along the way.  
    The bird appeared with Yellow-rumped Warblers feeding on the ground, on
    palm fruit that’s been collecting along the edge of the road, near the
    intersection of Anchorage Rd and Peninsula Rd.  
    I’d been looking at all the Yellow-rumps coming in to feed on the palm
    fruit for about 10 minutes, and the bird came in (apparently) from a small
    fenced area immediately east of Peninsula Rdl, which borders a weedy vacant
    lot.   The bird was only present for a
    minute or two, as when the first car came by, off went all the Yellow-rumps
    (for a while), as well as the Sage Thrasher (which I never saw again).   A very poor (documentation) photo of the
    bird—taken through windshield of car unfortunately—is posted to my Flickr
    site:    https://www.flickr.com/photos/ 56018183@N08/39065309364/in/ dateposted-public/
    .   To be honest, I'd be surprised if this bird would likely hang around the spot I came across it, due to the area being disturbed so
    frequently by vehicle traffic.  But for what it’s worth, here are the coordinates
    where the Sage Thrasher was present:  
    33.76518, -118.24874.   (Even
    though this is one of the earliest spring migrants for passerines, it sure
    seems like there has already been a lot of early Sage Thrashers passing through
    California, including northern half of the state--even going back to early January.)
    
    A Loggerhead Shrike in the area (a short way north along
    Shore Rd., from Anchorage, the bird being out in the oil fields east of Shore
    Rd.) was presumably the same individual I saw here last month.   I could not refind the Eurasian Tree Sparrow,
    although there were plenty of House Sparrows, House Finches and White-crowned
    Sparrows to look through. (The Eurasian Tree Sparrow was still present on 21
    December, 2017, at the same location where it was found, and reported, earlier
    in the year).   I also could not find a
    Palm Warbler that had been along the eastern edge of Shore Road (on 21
    December), about 250 yards north of Anchorage Rd.

  23. Palm Warbler and continuing Eurasian Tree Sparrow LINK
    DATE: Dec 22, 2017 @ 1:38am, 59 day(s) ago
    On Thursday (21 December), I had a couple birds of note down inthe Port of LA area. First of all, presumably the same Eurasian Tree Sparrow (ETSP) continues at the same location noted earlier this year (Feb. to at least early May). This location is technically Wilmington I believe, but is immediately north of Terminal Island. The location is along Anchorage Road, just about 250 yards west of the southern terminus of N. Henry Ford Avenue. Along the north side of Anchorage is a very narrow "greenbelt" of sorts (with marinas lining the south side of Anchorage, which is the Cerritos Channel here). This is the general area where the old Heim Bridge (SRs 47 and 103) cross the Cerritos Channel, over to Terminal Island. The ETSP was "hanging" with only a few House Sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows when I saw it in the early afternoon. Coordinates, which might help pin-point this somewhat tricky-to-find area are as follows: 33.7668, -118.2429.
    In addition, aPalm Warbler (PAWA) was about a half-mile down the road from the ETSP. From the ETSP, keep heading west on Anchorage Road, for about 1/4 mile, to the first road on the right (Shore Road); turn right (north) on Shore Rd.After continuing north at least 200 yards on Shore, the greenbelt strip on the right will end at a gravel driveway (this gravel drivewayends in about 50' at a locked gate).The PAWA was along the fence and row of large Saltbush that lines the north side of this gravel driveway. Interestingly, I'd had amid-winter PAWAonly about a half-mile from here, directly to the south, across the Cerritos Channel (on Terminal Island), while doing work out here in January 2016.I'd never refound the first PAWA, on Terminal Island, despite several repeat visits.
    And lastly, just of more local interest, there was a Loggerhead Shrike along Shore Road, about 200 yards north of the PAWA location (on the fence just east of the road). While I was watching the shrike for awhile, it was fun to see it drop to the ground (in weeds and other ruderal vegetation), and after a few minutes come up with a Side-blotched Lizard. After feeding on it a bit, it tried to impale the remains on the barbed wire strands at the top of the chain-link fence that separates Shore Road from open (oil) fields.Theshrike apparentlythought better of it, and eventually flew off out of sight to the northeast.
