  3. Continuing Garganey at Waller Park, Santa Maria (Santa Barbara Co.) LINK
    DATE: Dec 4, 2017 @ 10:51am, 7 day(s) ago
    Ed Stonick and I just had the continuing first-year Garganey in the largest pond (closest to the 135 highway) in Waller Park, Santa Maria. The bird was sleeping on the island earlier and not showing much, but now it's swimming around with the other ducks and giving good views.
    Good birding!

  7. Garganey continues, Waller Park, Santa Maria LINK
    DATE: Dec 1, 2017 @ 9:23pm, 10 day(s) ago
    Quite a few birders enjoyed the continuing GARGANEY at Waller Park in Santa Maria this afternoon (December 1). It was using the large duck pond, using the island as well as the water. Also present was the Wigeon/Mallard hybrid, a small group of Cackling Geese, three Wood Ducks, and a single stunningly gorgeous Northern Pintail. Good birding!

  9. A few additional Garganey photos LINK
    DATE: Nov 28, 2017, 14 day(s) ago
    Nothing at all artistic or creative, mainly just some close-ups of various body parts (click on big images at right to expand to fullest size). Bird was asleep on the island for most of the time I was there but did finally come over to the shore for quick, closer inspection.
    For what it's worth, the bird behaved as did every other duck in the pond. Yeah, it was tame, but no more so than was the world's tamest pintail, an obviously wild bird itself. Garganey flew on one occasion (when I got a bit too close to it on the grass!) and looked just fine lifting off, maneuvering, and landing back in the pond, away from me. So, let the debate continue.....

  19. Kings County review species -- call for documentation LINK

  21. S. Oregon's Bird Life LINK
    DATE: Sep 1, 2003 @ 11:28pm, 14 year(s) ago
    I purchased SOUTHERN OREGON'S BIRD LIFE by John Kemper (Outdoor Press,
    Medford, OR. 2003). The area covered by this book includes a portions of
    northeastern California in northern Siskiyou and Modoc Counties. The
    species accounts lists all species reported in the area covered, including
    vagrants to the area. The species accounts include a handful of records of
    "CBRC review species" in California. At least two of the listed records are
    not endorsed by the CBRC. Those records are as follows:
    Yellow-billed Loon Tule Lake NWR Feb 2000 (CBRC Record
    White-rumped Sandpiper Tule Lake NWR Jul 1989 (CBRC Record 2002-113)
    However, other records listed are endorsed by the CBRC, including that
    of a Garganey at Lower Klamath NWR in Apr 1982 (CBRC Record 1983-076), a
    Curlew Sandpiper at Tule Lake NWR in Aug 2000 (CBRC Record 2001-139), a
    Little Gull at Lower Klamath NWR in Jun 1998 (CBRC Record 1998-140) and a
    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher at Butte Valley Wildlife Area in Jun 1984 (CBRC
    Record 1985-121). Unfortunately, at best the author gives only the month
    and year for those records listed, and provides no references, so the
    "records" have little scientific value.

  23. RE: [CALBIRDS] Garganey in Baker LINK
    DATE: May 28, 2003 @ 2:57am, 15 year(s) ago
    We had no luck this morning. My wife Barbara and I, along with four Las
    Vegas birders, spent about 2.5 hours Tuesday morning starting at 7:30
    (one of the ponds is visible from outside the fence) to no avail.

  25. Garganey in Baker LINK
    DATE: May 25, 2003 @ 5:43pm, 15 year(s) ago
    On Friday (23 May), Matt Brady and David Vender Pluym reported a
    female GARGANEY from the Baker Sewage Ponds (San Bernardino County).
    Bill Maramarco and I saw the bird yesterday morning. The bird is in
    the main pond, which is only accessible, unfortunately, from the
    dropoff center on the west side of the ponds, which is open 8 am to 2
    pm Monday-Saturday, but not Memorial Day. Thus, the next opportunity
    to look for this bird will be on Tuesday.
    From I-15, exit at Kelbaker Road in Baker (the northernmost of the two
    Baker exits). Go east away from the town and (if you were
    northbound), immediately on your right will be the sewage ponds. When
    the dropoff center is closed, it is possible to view some of the ponds
    from the outside, but the main pond is not visible. If the dropoff
    center is open, park outside, then walk in and climb the berm to look
    into the main pond.
    Good birding,

  27. RFI: Garganey Photos LINK
    DATE: Jan 2, 2002 @ 12:35am, 16 year(s) ago
    There is some discussion of whether or not the teal we have in Morro Bay
    is in fact a Gargany. I have placed two photos on my web site amd would
    appreciate any feedback. They are long range video grabs. The white in
    the face is quite a bit brighter in the field than the pictures show.
    The photos can be reached at:
    Click on the "Photo Gallery" link, and scroll down the left side to the
    two Garganey pictures.
