  17. Hepatic Tanager in Angeles National Forest LINK
    DATE: May 28, 2018 @ 9:56am, 3 month(s) ago
    Hey y’all,
    Maggie Schedl and I were birding the road into Chilao Campground on Saturday afternoon and came across what I originally wrote off as an immature/female summer tanager. After hearing from other birders, it seems that the bird is actually a Hepatic Tanager. My photos show gray cheeks and a stout, dark bill consistent with hepatic Tanager. In addition, the pine-oak habitat at Chilao is consistent with hepatic Tanager breeding habitat. We noticed the bird in a pine on the left side of the paved road between little pines campground and manzanita campground. eBird checklist here:  https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46098796

    Some of these are incredibly rare but others are not: for example, Wilson's phalarope, Wilson's snipe, white-throated sparrow (there were several in the area very recently), burrowing owl, and both jaegers.
    
    In addition, there were a number of species in the county recently that we have never found during ABC weekend:
    
    Mar 14 n tundra swan

    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,
