    I just found Ventura County's first ever Great Crested Flycatcher at Sycamore Canyon. It is in the Sycamore trees at the day use parking lot. I will attempt to stay with it for those that want to chase. Hurry

  7. Barbara Carlson record San Diego year: 387 species LINK
    DATE: Dec 31, 2013 @ 2:57pm, 4 year(s) ago
    Barbara Carlson has ended 2013 with a phenomenal 387 species in San
    Diego County. This is not only a new record for this county (former
    record was ca. 370), but it is undoubtedly a single-year record for any
    county in the U.S./Canada. Barbara was aided by an excellent
    rarity-winter of 2012-2013, good shorebirds in late summer, LOTS of time
    spent offshore throughout the year racking up a long list of tough
    pelagic species, a reasonably productive autumn filling in holes,
    and--most of all--pure diligence! A testament to her long list was the
    fact that very recent findings of species such as a new Blue-headed
    Vireo, Bay-breasted and Black-throated Green Warblers, Painted Redstart,
    Orchard Orioles, and even a Masked/Nazca Booby added no new
    species.....she'd seen them all already earlier in the year! Her only
    new bird since Thanksgiving was the Oceanside Glaucous Gull.
    In the near future, Barbara will make a list of all the rarities she saw
    in the county this year, with the date, location, and other observers
    who saw them with her, and will make that document available to anyone
    interested. When ready, she will post news of its existence on this
    The list of high-quality rarities she saw in San Diego County in 2013 is
    too long to give here in its entirety, but here are some of the best of
    the best:
    Red-necked Grebe
    Flesh-footed Shearwater
    Great Shearwater
    Manx Shearwater
    Masked/Nazca Booby
    Blue-footed Booby
    Lesser Sand-Plover
    Wilson's Plover
    Sharp-tailed Sandpiper
    Franklin's Gull
    Glaucous Gull
    Guadalupe and Craveri's Murrelets
    Inca Dove
    Black Swift
    Broad-billed Hummingbird
    Great Crested Flycatcher
    Thick-billed Kingbird
    Blue-headed Vireo
    Yellow-green Vireo
    Gray Catbird
    Grace's, Pine, Bay-breasted, Black-thr Green, Prairie, Mourning Warblers
    Painted Redstart
    Nelson's Sparrow
    Harris's Sparrow
    Scarlet Tanager
    Bronzed Cowbird
    Orchard Oriole
    And what were her biggest "misses" Long-eared Owl, Ancient
    Murrelet....the Le Conte's Sparrow, Sandwich Tern, and multiple 'dips'
    on Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Scissor-tailed Flycatcher.
    Again, congratulations!
    Who's next to try!

  11. FRNC - continuing Great Crested Flycatcher, 11 Oct 2013 LINK
    DATE: Oct 12, 2013 @ 8:30pm, 4 year(s) ago
    Evidently the GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER was still at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Point Loma (three days now) as I caught a glimpse of it this evening flying into a cypress tree near "the dip". It gave a single loud "huu-ipp" call right after it dived into the tree!
    Eluding my detection, until 30 seconds after Barbara Carlson arrived (!), the flycatcher suddenly began calling again loudly at 6 pm right in the same cypress tree. We ran around on to the road, as the bird had dived down, and sure enough there sat the flycatcher eating an enormous green katydid!
    The exact location was along Cabrillo Memorial Drive just south of the main FRNC entrances. Going south the road dips down and at the bottom most spot, a few hundred yards on, there is a Cape Plumbago bush on the east side, and a cypress tree on the west side. It was in both places there. It then flew east to the eucalyptus grove behind "the wall", where I obtained more close photographs.
    Gruesome photos of the flycatcher eating the katydid, and some nice close-ups showing the tail and underparts coloration can be found on my blog link here
    Good luck!

  13. Great Crested Flycatcher on the Farallones LINK
    DATE: Oct 10, 2013 @ 1:03pm, 4 year(s) ago
    Hi everyone,
    The Farallon Islands just got its first Great Crested Flycatcher since 1989. This is the 12th record for the island, but half of those records are from the late 60's and early 70's. The wind finally died down today, and so we are seeing a few migrants. Aside from the mega just mentioned, we also have seen Hammond's Flycatcher, Wilson's Snipe, Nashville Warbler,
    Killdeer, and a Short-eared Owl. Also a longspur rattled, but has yet to be identified.
    This is our final day of Farallonathon, our annual fundraiser. I just updated our Los Farallones blog about the big bird wave we had last Friday. I'll be adding some more updates soon about what we have seen since then.
    Here's a link to our blog:
    And a link to our fundraising site:
    Good birding!

  15. FRNC - photos Great Crested Flycatcher, Yellow-green Vireo 09 Oct 2013 LINK
    DATE: Oct 10, 2013 @ 8:11pm, 4 year(s) ago
    I posted some photographs of the GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER and YELLOW-GREEN VIREO that I found early this morning 09 Oct 2013 at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Point Loma, San Diego. The flycatcher looked rather moribund when I first located it, but it took off on strong winds and I could not relocate it. Perhaps it is still around the cemetery some place, worth checking after this wind and rain storm rolls through.

    east of the first short bridge at the bottom of the slope. After a few
    seconds view it flew NW into the darker green willows where it called on
    and off for a few minutes, though out of sight. Silent now for a few
    minutes, and out of view.
    Please post to the net if you can.

  19. Update: Orange County Rarities LINK
    DATE: Sep 27, 2009 @ 2:23am, 8 year(s) ago
    First the Blue-footed Booby at the Dana Point Harbor jetty, Orange County,
    California. First found Thursday late afternoon by Robert McNab. Observed
    Friday AM after sunrise, but at some point left jetty only to return about 11 AM
    and apparently spent the rest of the day on the jetty. Saturday well
    photographed by boat by Monte Taylor ( about 7:15
    AM.... but by 8:30 AM was gone. Did not come back from 8:30 AM to at least 11 reported 12:55 PM. Not on jetty at 3:15 PM when I rechecked but flew
    in about 3:45 PM and was still there about 5:30 PM when I left.
    Conclusion: Bird has a routine.... seen on same rock of the long jetty at Dana
    Point Harbor for all sightings.... last top rock beyond the fog horn tower
    before the outer, long jetty slopes into the ocean. Roosts on that rock....
    leaves in morning and also may leave jetty in mid afternoon. Therefore, from
    the 3 days of observation, best times to see the Booby is after sunrise and in
    late afternoon. I think the best viewing spot would be from the island in the
    Dana Point Harbor... after crossing bridge make left turn and park at the end
    parking lot. The end of the long outer jetty is 1200 plus feet from this
    viewing area.... scope really needed to see details.
    Second... Upper Santa Ana River. Great Crested Flycatcher.... found by Doug
    Willick today, seen by some up to about 2 pm today.... along bike trail along
    Santa Ana River downstream from Glassell from 100 yards west to area of Porta
    Pottie. Also in the riverbed: Solitary Sandpiper and above Glassell.. Brewer's
    Sparrow and Yellow-headed Blackbird in riverbed. Below Glassell... Plumbeous
    Vireo and below Lincoln Pectoral Sandpiper.

  23. Great Crested Flycatcher still at Carmel river mouth LINK
    DATE: Oct 8, 2007 @ 7:54pm, 10 year(s) ago
    This morning Mike Rogers, John Luther, and I spent a couple of hours
    looking for the Great Crested Flycatcher along the Carmel river from
    the green pipe downstream to the end of accessible habitat. It was
    quite windy early (~7:30), but eventually Mike found the bird up the
    north bank behind some tennis courts and near a white wood fence
    that runs down to the river. The bird was quite difficult to see
    well, it stayed low, making short fluttering flights up and then
    dropping down into denser vegetation. Mike and John got good looks
    a couple of times. We lost the bird as it worked its way east in
    cover and against the light.
    An hour or more later, I heard the bird calling a loud "wheeep" call
    from quite a bit downstream on the south side of the river bed. It
    called a couple of times initially and then as I approached, it
    called about half a dozen times in succession. That was the only
    time it called this morning. It appeared to be inside a bush
    covered in white berries (Snowberry) and only fluttered up into
    view once. It then flew back across to the north side of the river
    and disappeared. Mike had one more brief view of it fluttering in
    some vegetation about 10 minutes later, but we had to leave after
    that. The wind had died down, so perhaps finding the bird will be
    easier later today.
    Also, the depth of the water at the makeshift wooden "bridge" is
    only a bit more than ankle depth (we crossed in rubber boots just
    fine) at least on the downstream side.

  25. Great Crested Flycatcher continues at the Carmel River mouth LINK
    DATE: Oct 8, 2007 @ 7:52pm, 10 year(s) ago
    The GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER found yesterday at the Carmel River mouth
    in Monterey County was still present at the same location (about 200
    yards downstream from the green pipe) this morning 10/8/07, seen by
    Richard Jeffers, John Luther and me. I initially found the bird at
    8:20am a short ways from the creek, foraging low in some dry fennel
    near the southeast corner of the tennis courts north of the river. It
    was hard to track as it foraged by fluttering low in the vegetation,
    staying pretty concealed. We followed it until about 8:40am and Richard
    later heard the bird call 6 times and then saw it fly across the river
    a bit further downstream at about 9:30am.

  27. Great Crested Flycatcher at Carmel R. mouth LINK
    DATE: Oct 7, 2007 @ 11:14pm, 10 year(s) ago
    This morning we, and a large field trip from a NAS convention, found
    a Great Crested Flycatcher along the dry riverbed at Carmel R. mouth.
    It was downstream of the green pipe perhaps 200 yards, working the
    north side of the river bank at mid to upper canopy perches in
    cottonwoods. We had a number of excellent scope and bino views and it
    was photographed by one participant. We posted in the local BirdBox
    immediately, and as I understand it, a number of locals were there by
    late morning. It was apparently refound farther downstream, past were
    a wide rivulet of thigh-deep water cuts across the riverbed. There is
    a rough log 'bridge' here of some treachery; boots are best but we
    got everyone across in tennis shoes today. In any event, as I
    understand it, the bird did move downstream toward the final bend
    (the same spot one was at back in Sep 1999). Perhaps someone else
    will post a further update, but this means it was working quite a
    lengthy swathe of river-edge riparian. It turns out that others on
    our field trip initially saw a mystery yellow-bellied flycatcher of
    this size back at this spot, so it probably started out there as well.
    The spot can be accessed by walking either from the Highway 1 down
    the dry riverbed or via Rio Park behind the Carmel Mission.
