    DATE: May 14, 2018 @ 6:55pm, 4 month(s) ago
    Kimball et al.
    
    There is a recent paper that resolves the Citrine Wagtail issue:
    
    Drovetski et. Al. 2018. Multi-locus reassessment of a striking discord
    
    between mtDNA gene trees and taxonomy across two congeneric species
    
    complexes. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 120 (2018) 43-52.
    
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1055790317304347via%3Dih
    
    ub
    
    They suggest that the mitochondrial data misrepresents the actual
    
    evolutionary history of the lineages, but sorts out on geography. But the
    
    multi-locus data confirm the traditional taxonomy. The bottom line is, that
    
    the Old School taxonomy is correct, and for birders that means that if it
    
    looks like a Citrine Wagtail, it is a Citrine Wagtail.

    Birders,
    
    The California Bird Records Committee has accepted records of two species
    
    new to the California state list:
    
    Band-rumped Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma castro) at SE Farallon Island, San
    
    Francisco Co., 10-11 Nov 2017 (2017-130); and
    
    Citrine Wagtail (Motacilla citreola) at Yolo Bypass, Yolo Co., 15-16 Dec
    
    2017 (2017-160)
    
    Note that each of these species comes with taxonomic uncertainties.
    
    "Band-rumped Storm-Petrel" may represent a complex of several species; there
    
    are perhaps four distinct populations within the Pacific Ocean alone, and
    
    each of these differs from the up-to-five distinct taxa in the Atlantic
    
    Ocean (see Petrels, Albatrosses and Storm-Petrels of North America by S. N.
    
    G. Howell, Princeton Univ. Press, 2012). Citrine Wagtail and
    
    Eastern/Western Yellow Wagtails form another confusing complex (see Pipits
    
    and Wagtails by P. Alstrom and K. Mild, Princeton Univ. Press, 2003); mtDNA
    
    work had suggested that the two clades of Citrine Wagtail were each more
    
    closely related to different Yellow Wagtail clades than to each other, but
    
    nuclear DNA work appears to confirm the distinctness, and monophyly, of
    
    Citrine Wagtail.
    
    Another potential state first, a Hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes)
    
    aboard a ship offshore of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, 17 May
    
    2016 (2016-150), was not accepted due to questionable natural occurrence.
    
    The addition of the storm-petrel and wagtail brings the California state
    
    list to 671 species. Thanks to Joe Morlan, the CBRC web site has already
    
    been updated with this information: https://www.californiabirds.org/

  11. Re: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] YELLOW WAGTAIL - east San Diego Bay (29 April 2014) LINK
    DATE: Apr 29, 2014, 4 year(s) ago
    All.
    This morning, I wanted to get the word out as quickly as possible, in the event that somebody else could intersect the path of this bird. Unfortunately, it is a classic one-that-got-away story. There are no records of Eastern Yellow Wagtail in eBird.org for San Diego county. I have since listened to more recordings on Xeno-Canto and have realized that Citrine sounds too similar to differentiate--at least for me. Given the fact that I could not study the plumage of this bird, it seem best to leave it identified as Motacilla species. Surely probabilities favor Eastern Yellow Wagtail, but for such an unusual report and so poorly documented it is best to play it cautiously.

    DATE: Oct 15, 2009 @ 11:59pm, 9 year(s) ago
    Hi All,
    
    I was birding Pillar Point Harbor today with Arnel Guanlao and we found a
    Yellow Wagtail. From the parking lot northwest of Princeton, the bird was about
    2/3 of the way down the West Shoreline Access trail which ends at the base of
    the north jetty. There are some Coffeeberry/Buckthorn/Rhamnus bushes and the
    bird's activities were centered around these for over 15 minutes starting at
    about 10:30 this morning.

    In order to stop speculation as to the number and dates of occurrence of the
    CBRC endorsed records of Eastern Yellow Wagtails in California in 2007, they
    are as follows:
    
    One at Bodega Bay SON 06 Sep 2007
    
    One at Malibu Lagoon LA 14-15 Sep 2007

    All:
    
    Yes, there is a Yellow Wagtail in Santa Barbara and no there are no
    details. It was at a privately owned and confidential location. A
    few birders using good optics apparently saw it or they had permission
    from the owners or researchers etc. With this new information now is
    the time to go find one of your own in your own patch. That is more
    fun anyways. I think last year there were at least two in California
    one in L.A and one in Ventura County. Pictures here:
    http://mysite.verizon.net/res0d1yq .
    There are 14 in the Rare Birds of California all early September or
    late August. All records are from the coast mostly lagoons and
    estuaries.

  29. Central CA Seabirding LINK
    DATE: Jul 18, 2008 @ 12:43am, 10 year(s) ago
    Hello, Seabirders, CA County Birders, Whale Watchers, and Ocean Lovers,
    
    Shearwater Journey's pelagic season is about to jump into full swing
    with our late summer and early fall boat trips from Monterey, Santa
    Cruz, Sausalito, Bodega Bay, and Fort Bragg. There is something for
    everyone on these trips, with lots of great birding on land in
    between boat trip days. Our trips from Monterey's Fishermans' Wharf
    have been running since 1976! This year, we return with trips from
    Santa Cruz on the north side of Monterey Bay. In past years, these
    trips were extremely productive. Santa Cruz is a bit easier to reach
    for folks coming from Silicon Valley, San Francisco and the Bay Area.

    SAUSALITO TO THE FARALLON ISLANDS:

    Note that some really nice land/sea birding combinations are possible
     August 8 Fort Bragg pelagic, August 9 birding on land in the area,
    August 10 Fort Bragg pelagic, August 11 birding Highway 1 south to
    Bodega Bay, August 12 Bodega Bay pelagic trip. This land/sea
    combination is excellent for both the out of state birders, who can
    benefit from the locals, but also for those CA county birders who are
    looking to add new species to their county lists. With many birders
    out in the field, something unusual is bound to be discovered! One
    year, in Fort Bragg, it was a Yellow Wagtail, another it was Bar-
    tailed Godwit! Excellent birding in both the Fort Bragg area and
    Bodega Bay make this a very attractive outing. Last year, we found
    whales on every single Shearwater Journeys' trip! I expect the same
    this year, however, I think we have an excellent chance for Blue
    Whales this year. Krill is abundant. Northern alcids  Horned Puffins
    and Ancient Murrelets have been observed recently, as well as the
    southern nesting Xantus's Murrelets. Its about time that we nailed
    down a Least Auklet! The offshore report from researchers is that 100
    + Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels and Xantus's Murrelets were out at the
    Cordell Bank recently!
    
    For reservations, please contact Debra Shearwater at the information
    below. Please note that it will only be possible to contact Debra by
    email during the August 7 through August 11 period. Hope to see you
    out there!!
    
    Shearwaters forever,
    Debra
