   Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria) - SOSA (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. LAR notes - Palm W., Yellow-headed, Solitary, Pectorals LINK
    DATE: Sep 20, 2018 @ 4:53pm, 31 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Thurs 20 Sep
    
    Approx 0710 Jeff Boyd found a tail-bobbing Palm Warbler outside the L.A.River north of Willow St, just south of the pipe bridge in a Chinese Elm along the horse trail below the bike path. It eventually flew out over the river and perhaps to trees on the west side. (My photos are poor.) Mid-morning we had a Yellow-headed Blackbird in grasses in the river north of the pipe bridge.

  3. Connecticut Warbler, San Clemente Island, 4 September and other recent rarities LINK
    DATE: Sep 5, 2018 @ 7:34am, 47 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Yesterday, 4 September, Commander Brian Flick (of Eurasian Wryneck fame) found a CONNECTICUT WARBLER on San Clemente Island. Pending acceptance by the CBRC this will be another first Los Angeles County record from San Clemente Island. Low overcast conditions and low wind the last few days has resulted in an uptick in landbird numbers. A PRAIRIE WARBLER and TENNESSEE WARBLER were moving with the Connecticut as well.

    https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48306893
    
    Additional highlights from the last week or so, include:
    -the first AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER record for SCI, independently found by Brian Flick and Nicole Desnoyers on 27 August
    
    -single BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS on 26 August (Desnoyers) and 1 September at opposite ends of the island
    -the 3rd record of CANADA WARBLER, a BLACK-CHINNED SPARROW, and a TENNESSEE WARBLER on 2 September
    -four AMERICAN REDSTARTS scattered over the last 3-4 days
    -a LUCY'S WARBLER on 3 September
    -up to NINE BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS, two SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, a LESSER YELLOWLEGS, and a PECTORAL SANDPIPER over the weekend
    
    An exciting start to September!

  5. L.A.River - Willow to Wardlow LINK
    DATE: Aug 23, 2018 @ 4:54pm, 59 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Thurs 23 Aug
    
    Birding LAR this morning with Jeff Boyd and Steve Morris north of Willow St....highlights were White-winged Dove, Solitary Sandpiper and Yellow-headed Blackbird.
    
    Mid-morning a WW Dove flew from east of the river at 32nd St, crossed the river, flew north between the river and the freeway, and buried itself in a eucalyptus along the freeway at Wardlow Road. A bit later, a White-winged (a second bird) flew from across the river at Willow St and landed in a sycamore below the east bikepath approx opposite 27th St. Photos of the "second" bird.

    A Solitary Sandpiper was in the river in the section between the two rows of concrete water diverters north of the Willow bridge. It sometimes stayed close to one of the grassy patches and was difficult to see.

    DATE: Aug 22, 2018 @ 1:23pm, 60 day(s) ago
    Hi Birders,
    
    This morning a Solitary Sandpiper continued (assuming it is the same one mentioned by Andy Birch on Monday) foraging in the mud and shallow water upstream from the confluence. One Wilson's and two Red-necked Phalaropes were also still present near the beginning of the rapids.

  11. Solitary Sandpiper (I suppose), Malibu Lagoon LINK
    DATE: Aug 13, 2018 @ 6:44pm, 2 month(s) ago
    Had a distant Tringa this afternoon at Malibu Lagoon that was presumably a Solitary. This one showed fairly bright yellow legs and more of a pale eyebrow than an eyering, but it was distant, so I don't want to go further than that. Bobbing its rear constantly, like a Spotted.
    To observe it (if it sticks), from the main trail that leads to the beach, take the left branch/dead-end just before you hit the beach, to the little overlook/bench at the end. You'll be looking east across the "mouth" of the lagoon. It was in flooded grass directly across from this overlook toward sort of the middle of the fenced-off area.
    Didn't call/flush, but very actively feeding, making short runs, bowing its head, rearing back, etc.

    DATE: Aug 9, 2018 @ 2:17pm, 2 month(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Thurs 9 Aug
    
    Approx 0845 there was a Solitary Sandpiper at the L.A.River north of Alondra Blvd in Paramount. It stayed near the wall on the west side of the channel; poor photos from across the river.

  21. Solitary Sandpiper LA River LINK
    DATE: Jul 10, 2018 @ 4:19pm, 3 month(s) ago
    Bette Davis Picnic Area stretch of the river. hopefully this bird will be here for the rest of the day until it gets dark. It is out in the open but very shy. It flew across to the other side of the river before I can use my regular camera. Andy Birch found
    this bird earlier today. The burnt corn smell from the fire at Griffith Observatory combined with humid air and the heat is a wonderful experience.

  23. SOLITARY SANDPIPER, LA River at Bette Davis, Burbank LINK
    DATE: Jul 10, 2018 @ 1:19pm, 3 month(s) ago
    A first of season and early (for me at least) SOLITARY SANDPIPER was at Bette Davis at lunchtime today. It was feeding on both sides of the river in the slower moving water towards the Victory Blvd bridge. There's also about 40 peeps towards the confluence that included 2 Westerns (one of which was super tiny and short-billed and set my pulse racing for a few minutes). Over the past few days, there's been a few LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS moving through and not lingering at Glendale Narrows which is about 1/2 mile east of Bette Davis.

    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,
