    The part about people deleting their eBird records/photos makes sense!

    Tom, eBird and the CBRC are two separate entities. Submitting documentation to one does not mean you have submitted documentation to the other. The CBRC reviews records
    of statewide significance, and we maintain our own archives so that we or others are able to review that documentation at a later date if necessary. If we relied on eBird to archive our documentation, there is the possibility that a user could delete his/her
    photos or checklists, or alter the descriptions, defeating the purpose of an archive. There is no plan to merge these processes in the future. Tom

    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.

  9. Golden-winged Warbler - Diaz Lake LINK
    DATE: Oct 24, 2010 @ 3:37pm, 8 year(s) ago
    The bird seen yesterday is still present this morning (24 Oct).
    
    From EasternSierrabirds post yesterday:
    
    On 23 Oct a male Golden-winged Warbler was found at the south end of
    Diaz Lake. This is the 7th Inyo County record and the first since
    1979! The bird was the most uncooperative one in the memory of the
    observers. Tom, Jo, and Kelli spent 3.5 hours trying to photograph the
    bird with absolutely no success. Each of a couple encounters totaled
    fewer than ten seconds of having an full, unobstructed view of the
    bird. There were numerous glimpses of a bird making leaves dance,
    binocs were focused, only to see the gray tail disappearing like fog
    into the back of the tree or the bird flying to the back of the tree.
    The warbler was gray above, white below, black throat and auricular
    including the eye, gray wings with a broad golden patch in the covert
    area. The brief views did not allow us to see if the chin was white
    and bill pale, which would indicate an immature male but a male it
    was! When on the road leading to the campground there is a black-and-
    white speed bump just after the road makes a turn to the west. Just
    after the speed bump there is a dead tree with four cut off stumps on
    the left side of the road and to the right of the road is a green
    metal 4"X4"X2.5' electrical box. This marks the eastern edge of the
    area where the bird was found and the area ends about 50 yards to the
    west along a mix of willows and cottonwoods on the south edge of the
    lake. There were periods of 30-60 minutes when the bird could not be
    found but when it was, it was still in this small area. While a small
    flock of Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warblers, a few Orange-crowned
    Warblers, and a couple of Ruby-crowned Kinglets were in the same trees
    with the Golden-wing, when they left the fancy bird did not. The wind
    was from the south and if that is maintained throughout the night the
    bird could remain until tomorrow. Early morning should be best and if
    anyone chases and is able to photograph it, we would like to see the
    photos in hopes of determining the age of the bird.

  11. Golden-winged Warbler at Butterbredt Spring LINK
    DATE: May 31, 2008 @ 11:42pm, 10 year(s) ago
    I just received a call from Todd Easterla. There was a Golden-winged
    Warbler at Butterbredt Spring in Kern County along with Parula and a Hooded
    Warbler. Also, Ovenbird at Galileo Hills and Tanner Easterla found a Canada
    Warbler at California City. That's all I know for now.
    
    Also, John Luther found a Black-necked Stilt in Alpine County at Indian
    Springs Res. Today.

    Jim Royer and Roger Zachary found a female Golden-winged Warbler earlier
    today at Montana de Oro State Park.
    
    The bird was located in the large cypress tree across the road from quon set
    hut structure at the front of the Isaly Creek Campground. The bird was in a
    small flock that included Chestnut-backed Chickadees, a Townsend's
    Warblerand a House Wren.
    
    They also had a Blackpoll Warbler at the mouth of Islay Creek.
    
    Jim and/or Roger may have more to add when they return from the field.

  15. SLO County Golden-winged Warbler LINK
    DATE: Sep 23, 2006 @ 10:17pm, 12 year(s) ago
    Roger Zachary and I found a first fall female Golden-winged Warbler this
    morning (Saturday, 9/23) at Montana de Oro State Park in coastal San Luis Obispo
    County. It was seen in a small mixed flock (chickadees, Wilson's Warbler,
    House Wren, Townsend's Warbler, etc.) in willows along Islay Creek between the
    ranch house (park headquarters) and the first campsites. It was viewed for
    about 10 minutes at around 9:30 am. It had a bright yellow wing patch with a
    dusky strip in the middle (like 2 wing bars bleeding together in spots) and
    the facial/throat pattern was that of a typical Golden-winged but dark gray
    and off-white (not black and white). The yellowish-greenish color on the
    crown/forehead was faint. There was an olivey tone to the grayish upper parts.
    It
    had a whitish chest, upper belly, and under tail coverts and a gray wash to
    the sides and lower belly. There was a lot of white under the tail. It was
    last seen moving upstream with the flock.

  21. Golden-Winged Warbler Continues at Pt. Reyes LINK
    DATE: Sep 28, 2002 @ 11:54pm, 16 year(s) ago
    This stunning bird was seen well by many people at 20-30 minute
    intervals throughout the morning at the Nunes Ranch, Pt. Reyes.
    
    Please note that the residents have requested that birders stay close to
    the cypress trees and away from the driveways and the wetlands area.
    The bird did fly into the lower cypress trees and into the bushes and
    dead branches at the bottom of the hill several times. It also worked
    the fence around the rose garden at one point.

  23. Golden-winged Warbler at Point Reyes LINK
    DATE: Sep 28, 2002 @ 2:31am, 16 year(s) ago
    Calbirders,
    
    At 8:00 A.M. today in the Nunes Ranch cypress grove at Point Reyes, Dave
    Nelson and I found Mike Bumgardner and the male GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER he had
    just spotted. This spectacular bird was studied by dozens of awed birders
    over the course of the day and was photographed and videoed at close range.

  25. Masked Booby to Golden-winged and Bay-breasted Warblers LINK
    DATE: Jan 6, 2002 @ 2:59am, 17 year(s) ago
    hey there.....just an update for today Jan 5
    
    Today, Andrew Birch, Thom Rahn and I went down to San Diego and
    worked our way back up to LA county
    
    The MASKED BOOBY was showing extremely well this morning. It flew off
    at around 8 AM (although we heard later that it came back mid-
    morning).
    
    The HARLEQUIN DUCK at De Anza cove in the SE corner of Mission Bay
    was sitting on a buoy near the boat docks.
    
    At the San Diego River Flood Control Channel we had 1 REDDISH EGRET
    and 3 LITTLE BLUE HERONS.
    
    The female GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER showed well at the Orange County
    Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa shortly after noon. It was in the elms
    between the Amphitheatre and Arlington Rd (Park in Lot 4). Along the
    hillslope of the Amphitheatre, there was a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER
    and a HERMIT WARBLER in a mixed species flock (moving around in the
    dense pines).
    
    We then went on over to El Dorado Regional Park in Long Beach and
    found Kimball Garrett's BAY-BREASTED WARBLER. It was extremely
    cooperative and we got good views for about 20 minutes until we got
    bored and moved on. It was in a pine tree along the fenceline which
    separates the archery range from Area II. It was towards the western
    end of the fenceline and stayed at about mid-height in a pine tree
    during the whole time we were observing it. It was hanging out with a
    mixed species flock of Yellow-rumps, several Townsend's and one Black-
    throated Gray Warbler. Nice bird.
