  21. Re: [LACoBirds] 4 Purple Martins and 2 Phainopeplas in San Pedro LINK
    DATE: May 4, 2018 @ 11:50pm, 5 month(s) ago
    Today (May 4) the male Phainopepla continued at the same location,
    observed from 5:04pm to 5:26pm with some gaps between. It was much
    windier than yesterday, making it much harder to see the Phainopepla for
    more than brief glimpses
    
    not only was he was flying from perch to perch
    more often, but it was harder to stand straight on the sloped ground.
    Like yesterday, he was calling. At one point (5:15pm) I saw him flying in
    the distance, approximately west-northwestward over
    33.71708N,118.29375W before going behind a tree from my point of view,
    so that may give a clue as to where else he's been spending time. Later
    he showed up again at the Greg Smith Conifer Grove.
    
    The migrant push has heated up here, so there were also Wilson's, Hermit,
    and Townsend's Warblers, Pacific-slope Flycatchers, and a Gray
    Flycatcher , at this location, as well as a Lazuli Bunting (heard) and
    some other warblers I couldn't get a good look at (possibly Nashville).
    There's also an immature male Hooded Oriole singing near this
    location.
    
    This appearance of 2 Phainopeplas here may be related to the 9 showing up
    in Jun &
    Bin's Sand Dune Park checklist from today . I wonder if the 4 Purple
    Martins I saw yesterday included the same 3 from
    Manuel &
    Alejandra's El Dorado Park checklist from March 24 ; it seems
    likely.

    Today (May 3):
    
    At Angels Gate Park, I spotted two Phainopeplas, one adult male and one
    female or juvenile, at 5:42pm perched together on the tree at
    33.71556N,118.29499W, both calling. Subsequently, they spent most of
    their time in the Greg Smith Conifer Grove (general vicinity of
    33.71541N,118.29414W). At 6:20pm I saw the male land right next to the
    female/juvenile on a branch, facing each other, and the female/juvenile
    opened its bill wide, as if it were begging (which would suggest it might
    be a juvenile). In general, the male tended to be more conspicuous, and
    called much more often, sometimes calling repeatedly in rapid succession
    for an extended period of time. They were both still in the Greg Smith
    Conifer Grove when I left at 6:57pm. I will be very curious to see if
    they stick around.
    
    Near my house (near Cabrillo Beach) at 7:50pm, four Purple Martins were
    doing some late-evening bugging! They were flying around between the
    southern stretch of Stephen M. White Dr. and about 200 feet east of it. I
    was absolutely blown away when I realized what species they were. It was
    already quite dark, so my videos didn't turn out too well, but it's quite
    clear that at least 2 of them were adult male (all dark/iridescent), and
    at least 1 was female/immature (pale underside and collar). I could still
    see at least two males flying at 7:56pm.

  25. ABC Update: 263 Species LINK
    DATE: Apr 30, 2018, 5 month(s) ago
    Hi Everyone,
    
    As of Monday night, our total is 263 species, which is one above our long-term average dating back to 2003.The new species were brant and short-billed dowitcher found by Team Irritable Owl Syndrome (Mark Scheel, Janet Scheel, Darren Dowell, and John Garrett) during their big day, and chukar, which was reported on San Clemente Island.
    
    It's possible that more species could appear in eBird, so I'm going to hold off on circulating a big summary email for about a week just in case new reports materialize.
