  1. Re: [CALBIRDS] Eider a steller bird or a joke? LINK
    DATE: Mar 11, 2018 @ 8:04pm, 6 month(s) ago
    Approximately 4 people saw the bird yesterday. The finder, Jeff Allen,
    found the HumCo Common Pochard Dec 2016 and the Stellerís Eider isnít a joke.
    Searchers today included Rob Fowler and I. Fog made conditions difficult
    and no one relocated the bird as far as I know.

     I, along with others I talked to, determined from the deafening silence that
    the report was bogus.

    I am assuming that
    since a bird representing a fourth California record, and the first record in
    over 26 years (which is greater than the birding lifetime of most current
    California birders) has not merited even a single posting to this statewide
    list serve or to the local (NWCalbirds) list serve, either (1) the sighting is
    well-known to be bogus and has been summarily dismissed by Humboldt birders),
    or (2) list serves have now officially and completely outlived any function in
    disseminating news of rare birds.. Could somebody closer to the scene please
    enlighten the rest of us birders on the status of the reported female
    Steller's Eider at the mouth of Redwood Creek, Humboldt Co. on 10
