  1. RE: [CALBIRDS] ID help - Flycatcher LINK
    DATE: Aug 4, 2017 @ 12:31pm, 13 day(s) ago
    As Im sure many have already pointed out privately, the flycatcher in the recording is a Western Wood-Pewee. There are, in fact, a great many recordings of
    this species on Xeno Canto (etc.) that match the call you recorded. Besides voice, Western Wood-Pewees are best told from
    Empidonax by structure -- very long primary projection, and thus wingtips closer to the tip of the tail (which is relatively shorter in wood-pewees than empids).
    
    The other most dominant call in your recording is from an American Robin, a species which I note is not on your checklist.

    Subject: [CALBIRDS] ID help - Flycatcher
    
     I recorded this flycatcher in San Diego County on July 15, 2017. The specific location was at the intersection of I-8 and 79, across from Park & Ride
    Lot #29(32.8284, -116.6233).
    
    It is the first call in the recording and it calls 3x. The chipping in the audio is not from the same bird. It sounds so familiar, but I have listened to calls on Xeno, Cornell, and iBird Pro and I just can't match the
    call. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The description of the bird is with the recording in eBird at the following link:
    http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38156232
    
    I put it in asEmpidonax sp. for the moment, but Say's Phoebe and Western-wood Pewee are also in the eBird list for the area.

  5. Blue Jay still present in Quincy LINK
    DATE: Mar 1, 2016 @ 8:38pm, 1 year(s) ago
    I finally made it up to Quincy to look for the Blue Jay. It had not been
    
    reported in awhile (I think Colin's report from 1/9 might be the most
    
    recent on the listserv -- not sure about eBird).
    
    I arrived around 2:00 p.m. and heard the bird calling within fifteen or
    
    twenty minutes of my arrival. Several Steller's Jays were calling in
    
    the same area. The call was coming from the area of the intersection of
    
    Monte Vista and Spring (which is very near where Colin reported it back
    
    in January.) Unfortunately, it stopped calling after a minute or two,
    
    before I was able to get into position to look for it, and I did not see
    
    it. I remained about another 2.5 hours without ever hearing it again.
    
    A local resident came out to say hi, asking me if I was looking for the
    
    Blue Jay. He said he had seen it near his house (very near the same
    
    location) two days ago. (He noted that he did know the difference
    
    between the abundant Steller's Jays and the Blue Jay -- he was from the
    
    east.)
    
    The rest of the day didn't bring a whole lot. I walked all over the
    
    neighborhood and picked up one Golden-crowned Sparrow, several Juncos
    
    (one was Slate-colored), many Common Ravens, Steller's Jays, a few
    
    Turkey Vultures, two Spotted Towhees, one Downy Woodpecker, one very
    
    vocal American Crow, a House Finch, and a few American Robins.

  7. Two species feeding same chicks in El Dorado county LINK
    DATE: Jul 8, 2015 @ 11:44am, 2 year(s) ago
    A nest with 5 Townsend's Solitaire chicks was observed with both solitaire parents feeding and an adult American Robin feeding the chicks 3 July 2015. The nest was on the ground against a dirt bank below a parking lot and surrounded by pine needles in the middle of the Christian camp grounds at Leoni Meadows, south of Grizzly Flat, southeast of Placerville, in El Dorado county, at about 4100 ft. elevation. The birds did not seem to be bothered by the human children and parents moving about close to them. Both Townsend's Solitaire parents were feeding the chicks. The surprising part was an adult American Robin that was also feeding the chicks in the same nest. I only saw one robin come to the nest at a time, though I saw both solitaire parents near the nest at the same time. I digiscoped the feeding and will post some photos. This appears to be altruistic behavior by the robin.

  15. RE: [CALBIRDS] Massive Varied Thrush flight at Pt. Pinos, Monterey County--17 November 2014 LINK
    DATE: Nov 18, 2014 @ 3:12pm, 3 year(s) ago
    For what it’s worth, Rich Stallcup, in one of his periodic essays for the PRBO newsletter (“Focus #39: The Year of the Varied Thrush; Invasions,” Point Reyes Bird Observatory, Winter 1994-1995), suggested that Varied Thrush invasions signaled heavy winter rains to come. “For Varied Thrushes, it may be a low summer production of berries on the breeding range or their unexplainable sensing that a hard winter is coming. It is true that fall Varied Thrush invasions to California are followed here by record-making rains in winter.” That sure would be nice, if it pans out this year.

    Thanks for this note! Thinking out loud here, but I assume that the Varied Thrushes are heading south from areas that typically have food for them farther north. I do wonder what is missing, that is making them fly south and why I assume also that it is mainly a low berry crop. Not sure of what, and if it is a wide assortment of berries up north that are in poor abundance this year. Perhaps it is entirely different, and the food is normal up north but they had a boom breeding season. If the latter, then I think one would expect a higher than normal ratio of youngsters In any case the warm water year in Alaska might be the root cause, creating weather anomalies which have influenced the plants – seems reasonable to speculate that. I still marvel that in this day and age we still do not know the specifics of what makes our common birds tick so that we could adequately answer the simple question of why are the Varied Thrushes coming down this year We have a lot of work to do….but we are getting there, and eBird is an awesome tool to get us to the point of seeing the patterns clearly!

    It's been an unusually great year for Varied Thrushes here in Monterey County. The past week has seen a deluge of birds descending over the coastal region. Today with an offshore wind blowing at Pt. Pinos, I estimated 750 birds passing high overhead in mixed flocks with American Robins. This is a high count for Monterey County. Looking at eBird, it appears to be a good year already for this species south of here, and I suspect more Varied Thrushes are on the way. Here's a link to this morning's checklist with some photos:
    
    http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklistsubID=S20583946
    
    In addition to Varied Thrushes, we've had some Evening Grosbeaks here on the coast, and a good coastal push of Lewis's Woodpeckers.
    
    Thanks

    On October 28, I spent a morning ( 07:30-11:15 ) counting birds in flight along the Santa
    Cruz Mountains at a observation site at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo County.
    A high pressure system had built in with a clear sky at the time. The first hour there
    ( 100-150 ) Varied Thrushes flying south. Then there came a turn around and Varied
    Thrushes were flying north. By the time I departed there were ( 7,120 ) Varied Thrushes
    flying north! Most of the Varied Thrushes were in groups with highest group made up of
    ( 160 ) Varied Thrushes. I went back the next day in the morning and there were
    ( 1,470 ) Varied Thrushes flying north. Both days there were few American Robins
    being noted and none were mix in with the Varied Thrushes. At the same time birders
    noting morning flights from San Francisco had hundreds of Varied Thrushes flying north
    over to Marin County.

  21. Rufous-backed Robin continues at Zzyzx (Nov 13) LINK
    DATE: Nov 14, 2013 @ 7:35pm, 4 year(s) ago
    Upon getting word from Bill Deppe about his Rufous-backed Robin, I drove out to Zzyzx Desert Studies Center, arriving just before 3 PM, parking in the parking lot just outside the DSC gate. As I was walking in toward the pond along the main east-west road (Blvd of Dreams), I noticed a few American Robins perched in the tamarisk trees in the middle of the road opposite the southwest corner of the pond. I continued forward (east), and spotted a Varied Thrush in the mesquite at the southwest corner of the pond, and continuing, several robins flushed from the tamarisks in the middle of the road. I scanned through the robins perched in the small mesquite in the palm grove between the Blvd of Dreams and the caretaker's residence, and found the Rufous-backed Robin perched in the middle of the mesquite. I took several photos, cautiously approaching, and got to within about 50 feet before the robins flushed again into the taller palms between the caretaker's residence and the bathrooms. This time the Rufous-backed Robin was perched on a palm frond in the open. Again, I approached slowly and took photos, but only got within 75 feet before the robins flushed. At this point the Rufous-backed Robin flew into the tall tamarisk adjacent to the dormitories. I tried to work my way around but lost track of the bird and I did not see where it flew, nor did I see it again before I left at 4 PM (at which time it was already starting to get dark). A number of American Robins were perched up in the row of tamarisk trees at the west end of the main pond, and coming down to drink at the water's edge, but I did not see the Rufous-backed among them.
    
    Anybody going to chase this bird tomorrow, I would recommend carrying your scope and viewing the robin from a distance so as not to risk flushing it. It was not foraging when I observed it late this afternoon, but there are plenty of palms with ripe fruits around the main pond (and elsewhere), and it may be a little more cooperative tomorrow if its feeding. It did seem to be sticking with the American Robins.

  23. Red Crossbills and Evening Grosbeaks at Lassen Volcanic National Park LINK
    DATE: Oct 22, 2012 @ 5:24am, 5 year(s) ago
    Greetings Everyone,
    
    Kathi Ellsworth and I have spent the last couple of days in Lassen
    Volcanic National Park and at adjacent areas. Although our primary
    focus hasn't been birds, we've done some birding and have been struck by
    the widespread red crossbills we keep encountering at various places
    below 7000 feet in elevation, by groups of evening grosbeaks, and by
    varied thrushes.
    
    The single most productive spot has been the parking lot at Subway Cave
    Lava Tube in Lassen National Forest near the junction of routes 89 and
    44 (a short distance north of Lassen NP). There's a dripping drinking
    fountain that was attracting droves of birds this afternoon. We found
    at least 70 evening grosbeaks there, about 20 red crossbills, 3
    solitaires, two varied thrushes, and other montane species. The list
    from eBird appears below; among the species listed, all the ones with
    an asterisk (*) next to them were coming to the drinking fountain (i.e.,
    most of them).
    
    We also found flocks of red crossbills at Summit Lake and at the
    Devastation Area parking lot (both within Lassen National Park), and at
    St. Bernard Lodge B & B on highway 36 between Lassen NP and Chester.
    To my ear, the crossbills sounded like type 2s, but that's tentative
    until I have a chance to generate sonograms from my recordings to check
    the call type(s). St. Bernard Lodge B & B also had a small group of
    evening grosbeaks on Saturday morning and a northern saw-whet owl on
    Friday night.
    
    The evening grosbeaks sounded like a mixture of type 1s and type 2s, but
    again, I need to check sonograms of my recordings to be sure.
    
    We also found four varied thrushes at Summit Lake for a total of six
    today.
    
    Other highlights:
    
    Two golden eagles in Lassen National Park near the Diamond Peak trail
    head on Saturday morning.
    
    One sooty grouse on the side of highway 89 about a mile south of the
    south entrance to the National Park at 5 pm on Saturday.
    
    Two sandhill cranes at Butte Lake on Sunday at about 6 pm.
    
    This is our first visit to this area, so perhaps some of this is normal,
    but we still thought it would be of general interest.

  25. Re: [CALBIRDS] Rare Bird Notifications LINK
    DATE: Jan 24, 2012 @ 6:14pm, 6 year(s) ago
    Hi CALBIRDERs
    
    I just wanted to follow-up here to let you all know that the eBird rare
    bird alerts are available at the state and county level, and you can set
    them up to be sent via email hourly, daily, or you can view them online.
    Here is an example for California:
    
    http://ebird.org/ebird/alert/summarysid=SN35464
    
    And restricted to San Diego County, which reveals more detail at the local
    level:
    
    http://ebird.org/ebird/alert/summarysid=SN35818
    
    These alerts aren't perfect because they run off the 'zeros' that are on
    the eBird filters for a given region. So sometimes a weird subspecies like
    'American Robin (American)' will show up as a result of an upload, but in
    general they work pretty well, and the information is timely. Pay attention
    to the 'Confirmed' or 'Unconfirmed' notation, as this shows whether the
    records have been looked at by an eBird reviewer.
    
    We're trying hard to get useful information out to birders, so let us know
    if you think these work, or don't work!
    
    Thanks
    
    Brian

  27. Shoshone-Tecopa Christmas Count (trial run) results LINK
    DATE: Dec 19, 2011 @ 6:23pm, 6 year(s) ago
    Hi Birders,
    
    Here are the results of the first (trial run) Christmas Bird Count for
    Shoshone-Tecopa, CA. held on Sunday Dec 18th.
    
    13 Birder's in 4 teams from Nevada and California counted birds at Shoshone
    Village, Shoshone Wetlands, Grimshaw Lake, Tecopa Hot Springs, Tecopa Marsh,
    Amargosa Canyon, and China Ranch.
    
    We observed 62 species
    and 1046 individual birds.
    
    As our CBC experience and local knowledge improve, we are already looking
    forward to next year's first official Shoshone-Tecopa CBC.
    
    We would like thank all who came on this fine desert day to count birds,
    
    A special thank you to all at Crowbar Restaurant for the awesome hot food
    afterwards.

  29. Shoshone Village, CA 92384 Bird Report LINK
    DATE: Nov 10, 2011 @ 1:44am, 6 year(s) ago
    Hi Birders,
    Sadly,
    I think the Wood Thrush has departed. I have NOT relocated the Dusky-capped
    Flycatcher.
    However my spirits were lifted today as a lovely female Varied Thrush took over
    the garden hose pond today, and a Ferruginous Hawk gave me great views as it
    flew over the Village. This was the second Ferriginous Hawk sighted within a
    week, possibly them same individual.
    Lawrence's Goldfinches a small flock with at least 3 males was reported
    yesterday around the old catfish pond. 15-20 Bushtits continue to be seen around
    town and out on the wetlands.
    Phainopeplas are now here in force, and I would estimate 40-60 individuals in
    Shoshone.They spend a great deal of time defending their patch of Desert
    Mistletoe against Western Bluebirds, Mockingbirds, American Robins, and Cedar
    Waxwings. Sage Sparrows, and White-crowned Sparrows are common in the open
    fields. Crissal Thrasher, Black-tailed Gnatcatcher, Verdin, and Bewick's Wren
    are year round residents and hold loose winter territories throughout Shoshone
    Wetlands.Cooper's Hawks, Northern Harriers,Prairie Falcons, American Kestrels,
    and Red-tailed Hawks are regularly seen.
    American Pipits, Western Meadowlarks, and Juncos (several types) feed throughout
    the day on the lawns of the Village. Red-naped Sapsuckers, and Northern Flickers
    are often found in the larger trees. A lone Cactus Wren sings all year round,
    but appears to be unpaired since 2008. Please let me know if anyone sees 2
    Cactus Wrens at the same time!
