    California birders,
    
    In mid December the California Bird Records Committee (CBRC) will begin reviewing the following records, for which we have little or no documentation. If you have any documentation
    to submit for these records, please do so as soon as possible. Feel free to forward this request to local listservs as appropriate. Thank you.

    What kind of documentation should one submit to the CBRC Following are some guidelines for submitting media and written descriptions that will be useful for helping the
    CBRC evaluate records and archive documentation. Documentation may be submitted directly to the secretary via email ( secretary@... ), or by using the online submission form ( http://www.californiabirds.org/report_sighting.html ).
    
    Media: This includes photos, audio recordings, and video. Photographs are usually the most useful documentation for evaluating records. If you have reasonably good (=identifiable)
    photos, please submit them. If possible, please crop the photos before submission so that the bird fills most of the frame. Also, please send originals whenever possible, and not screenshots or back-of-camera photos. How many photos should you submit That
    really depends on the record. If it is a long-staying rarity that is easily identifiable and seen by dozens of people, then a few photos (1-3 per person) are sufficient. If it is a mega-rarity that is difficult to identify and only seen by a one or few people,
    then send as many photos as possible that show the bird at different angles, postures, lighting, etc. Sometimes it is also useful to submit audio and/or video recordings of the bird, as some birds are more easily identified by their vocalizations. If relatively
    short, most audio recordings are small enough to be submitted via email; please submit those along with a brief note indicating the date and location of the recording. Large audio files and video files can be submitted by using a file sharing service; please
    contact the secretary if you need to submit a file that is too large for email.
    
    Written descriptions: Some written details should always be provided even the best photos should be accompanied by the name of the observer, the date, and the location,
    at a minimum. Sometimes a photo cant be obtained or vocalizations cant be recorded. In some cases, behaviors might be noted in the field that arent preserved well by photos. In these cases, it is helpful to submit a written description of the bird. Ideally,
    this description should be written as soon after observing the bird as possible; it is often helpful to make written notes in the field, or even dictate notes into the voice recorder on your smartphone while observing the bird, from which you can later generate
    a written description. The most important aspect of a written description is that you report only what you observed, and not a general description of the bird from a field guide. At a minimum, your description should include the date and location of the observation,
    and a description of the bird (size and structure, plumage, vocalizations, behavior). A brief discussion of how the bird was identified, and how similar species were eliminated is also helpful. Other useful information you might report includes optics used,
    distance from bird, lighting or weather conditions, length of time viewed, and other observers present.

  3. Carpinteria Blue-winged Warbler continues LINK
    DATE: Oct 14, 2018 @ 5:46pm, 32 day(s) ago
    Hi Birders
    
    The BLUE-WINGED WARBLER, a beauty and very hyper, continued in Carpinteria Creek. Between 4:00 and 4:50pm, we saw it on the northeast side of the 8th Street foot bridge, half way up the creek to the Carpinteria Avenue bridge just before the old shack. Orange-crowned Warblers were calling and it was hard to differentiate whether the Blue- winged called. It seemed rather tame as it came very close and it appeared to favor dense leaves and it was very hyper! I ended up taking some highly prized bird-butt photos.
    
    Bird on!

  15. Blue-winged Warbler and Blue- headed Vireo on Carmel River in Monterey County LINK
    DATE: Oct 9, 2018 @ 9:39am, 37 day(s) ago
    Both birds seen well early this morning Oct 9. About 200 yds downstream from the Carmel River Inn in Carmel. Thanks to Carole Rose and Don Roberson for their detailed directions. See posts to Mbbirds on Sialia.com. As they suggest, waterproof boots would be helpful. The warbler has yellowish wing bars - first fall female

    DATE: Oct 18, 2009 @ 6:31am, 9 year(s) ago
    Saw the Laguna Grande Lake GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER at the
    yellowjacket nest site today at 1pm for about 10 minutes working the
    willows at eye level. Birders that I met when I just arrived told me
    that it had made an appearance at about 9:30 at the same place. Park
    at Virgin St and Grant ave and walk down the trail to a 3-way
    intersection of the trail near the broken yellow tape near the
    yellowjacket nest. (Google maps: enter Virgin and Grant, Del Rey Oaks
    CA 93940)
    I arrived at the Manresa bicycle wheel overlook site at about 2pm and
    stayed until about 3:30 and did not see the BLUE-WINGED WARBLER
    reported earlier this week. A birder that I met told me that he had
    been there since late morning also without seeing it.

    DATE: May 29, 2009 @ 2:21am, 9 year(s) ago
    Ruth,
    
    You are absolutely correct, but it's not the "New Direction" that causes
    this to happen. Those birds should be reported to Calbirds. It's the more
    common birds that are resident in the State, that we are encouraging to be
    reported at a local level, and not at the State level.
    
    We can't force people to report their sightings, but as I always stated, if
    you take information from these list, then you should give back to the those
    list.
