    Adult Red-necked Stint in alternate plumage found by Noah Arthur on 3
    August 2017 has been seen daily at the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary viewing
    platform in Alameda, Alameda County. This morning it was foraging on
    exposed mud mostly southwest of the viewing platform during incoming tide.
    It is reported continuing there this afternoon.
    I posted a few distant digiscoped images and some descriptive notes at...
    Good luck!

  5. Request for documentation for CBRC review species LINK
    DATE: Nov 17, 2016, 1 year(s) ago
    Greeting Calbirders,   As fall migration is winding down, I hope that you all got out and saw some good birds over the past few months. There were a number of reports on listservs and on eBird of California Bird Records Committee (CBRC)
    review species . If you saw any of these, I encourage you to submit your documentation (written descriptions, photos, and/or audio recordings) to the CBRC. In particular, I have included a list below
    for which the CBRC has received little or no documentation. If you have not submitted documentation to the CBRC previously and you don’t know what to include, please visit the
    CBRC website where you can find
    submission guidelines as well as a
    report form . One of the CBRC’s primary purposes is to permanently maintain documentation of rare birds in order to better understand the status and distribution of birds in California, as well
    as to preserve these records for future research. Your submission of documentation greatly facilitates the work of the CBRC in pursuing this goal.   Great () Frigatebird – Point Pinos MTY, 2 Nov: 0 reports Nazca Booby – Point Pinos MTY, 14 Nov: 0 reports Black Vulture – Bodega Bay SON, 22 Oct-8 Nov: 0 reports Bar-tailed Godwit – Shoreline Park ALA, 3-5 Sep: 1 report Little Stint – Tolowa Dunes DN, 1 Aug: 1 report Little Stint – Centerville Wetlands HUM, 31 Aug: 1 report Little Stint – San Jacinto Wildlife Area RIV, 9-15 Oct: 3 reports Red-necked Stint – Humboldt Bay HUM, 14 Aug: 3 reports Red-necked Stint – Eel River Estuary HUM, 1 Sep: 0 reports Red-necked Stint – San Jacinto Wildlife Area RIV, 5-9 Sep: 3 reports Thick-billed Murre – near Bodega Head SON, 9 Oct: 3 reports Yellow-bellied Flycatcher – Humboldt Bay HUM, 16-21 Sep: 2 reports Dusky-capped Flycatcher – Antonelli Pond SCZ, 4 Sep: 0 reports Dusky-capped Flycatcher – Point Pinos MTY, 14-16 Nov: 0 reports Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher – Carpinteria Creek SBA, 30 Sep: 0 reports Blue-headed Vireo – Fort Rosecrans Nat’l Cemetery SD, 18 Sep: 0 reports Winter Wren – Crystal Spring SBE/INY, 5-7 Nov: 1 report Dusky Warbler – Oyster Point SM, 24-26 Sep: 4 reports Rufous-backed Robin – Chiriaco Summit RIV, 13-14 Oct: 0 reports Rufous-backed Robin – Desert Center RIV, 12-16 Nov: 0 reports Mourning Warbler – Galileo Hill KER, 10-11 Sep, 3 reports Cape May Warbler – Point Reyes MRN, 11 Oct: 0 reports Cape May Warbler – Palo Alto SCL, 15-17 Oct: 1 report Rusty Blackbird – Smith River DN, 15 Nov: 0 reports Streak-backed Oriole – Desert Center RIV, 23-24 Oct: 3 reports Common Grackle – Smith River DN, 15 Nov: 0 reports   Thank you, Tom   Thomas A.

  7. Recent STINT IMAGES in California LINK
    DATE: Sep 6, 2016 @ 6:41pm, 1 year(s) ago
    Hi All,
    As you may know I was lucky enough to find two species of black legged Stints in back to back days at the Eel River watershed in Humboldt County this last week. I have had time to go through the images and edit a few of them for all to view. They were both juvenile plumaged individuals of Red-necked Stint and Little Stint. The images are on my FLICKR site which can be viewed at the link below. Feel free to post something if you feel the need.
    I will be adding some other peep images soon for comparison as well as some vagrant images from Mendocino County recently. I will post those as well when I can find the time.
    On another note, another juvenile plumaged Red-necked Stint was found yesterday in Riverside County by Tony Metcalf and it was refound today as well. Several folks including myself came to this conclusion after we were able to review his identifiable images.

  11. Juvenile Red-necked Stint. Humboldt Co. LINK
    DATE: Sep 1, 2016 @ 10:23pm, 1 year(s) ago
    HI All,
    Today I had the luck and good fortune to find a juvenile Red-necked Stint near Loleta, which is South of Eureka, Ca.,about 10 miles or so.The bird was found in the Eel River estuary. Take Cannibal Island Road West from Loleta about 2 miles until you come to Cockrobin Island road. Make a left here {South} and take this road all the way until the road basically dead ends at a house. If you have 4 wheel drive with high clearance you can continue South for about a 1/4 mile until you hit the river. The bird was directly out in the river on some sand and rock bars. The bird was associating with other peeps. It is best to arrive here after the tide has been going out for a couple of hours to create the habitat for them to forage upon.
    I guess the LIttle Stint was a no show today at the Centerville Wetlands.
    I will post images on my Flickr sight when I get back home in a couple of days and post it to Calbirds. I was lucky enough to get images of both birds for one to compare these species.
    Good Luck if you venture for the bird or birds.

  17. RED-NECKED STINT at Frank's Dump, Hayward Regional Shoreline LINK
    DATE: Jul 11, 2016 @ 10:29pm, 1 year(s) ago
    Yesterday evening, on a field trip to the Frank's Dump area of Hayward Regional Shoreline that i was co-leading for Ohlone Audubon, Vicki Robinson found and photographed a RED-NECKED STINT in alternate plumage. (Frank's Dump is the local name for the large pond adjacent to the Sulphur Creek outlet into SF Bay). Unfortunately, no one else in our group was able to get on the bird before sunset last night. Today, quite a few birders (including me) went out to search for the bird, but it didn't show again until almost 6:30pm.
    The stint was originally found in the northwest corner of Frank's Dump, and today at 6:30, that corner is exactly where it reappeared. It foraged there for nearly 30 minutes, offering excellent views from as close as 30 feet away. At about 7pm, every peep took off simultaneously, including the stint, and formed a huge murmuration that lasted for nearly 10 minutes. The peeps all settled in a tightly packed mass on an island closer to the southwest corner of Frank's Dump, and after diligent scoping through thousands of Westerns and Leasts, we managed to re-find the stint, its bright red face making it possible.
    I believe that this represents a first county record for Alameda County. Here's a link to Vicki Robinson's photos from yesterday.
    Good birding,
