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 can稚 be obtained or vocalizations
    can稚 be recorded. In some cases, behaviors might be noted in the field that aren稚 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.

    Last update on the wagtail as I am leaving the park...it flew off well to the southwest at 11 AM. At least 10 birders were able to see the bird before it flew, but I was with the last group to depart. It was relatively cooperative from 9-11 AM, being in the spillway almost continuously during that time (it twice flew off briefly for a few minutes before returning).

     The White Wagtail just flew off too the northwest at 905 AM. It flew off once before and returned, so it may come back again.

It may be behind the patches of cordgrass here or may have flown back to the original location north of Robb Athletic Field.

    Around a dozen or so birders looked for the White Wagtail on the tidal mudflats of the San Diego River from 9:30 to 11:30 without success. It was last seen here by other observers around 8:30.

    I posted some of the closer photographs that I obtained today of the WHITE WAGTAIL at the San Diego River flood control channel at Robb Field, Ocean Beach.
    
    The wagtail was first found and identified by JoAnn Hackos, we believe a visiting birder from Colorado, and reported very quickly into eBird. Thanks JoAnn!! I happened to be getting into my car at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery to head down to the river right when the eBird alert pinged my phone.
    
    Seen by many observers pretty much all day.
