Ross's, Yellow, Western, Goldeneye

Paul Lehman

A morning of birding on Thursday unfortunately produced only a few minor birds of note. A new Yellow Warbler is along the railroad tracks behind the Hilton hotel and Chase Palm Park. That area actually has a fair number of birds and blooming trees although obviously it lacks a certain aesthetic. A Western Tanager was along Cliff Drive just east of Hope Ranch, there's a female-type Common Goldeneye on Laguna Blanca, and unfortunately outside the count circle there's a Ross's Goose grazing with the coots at the pond in front of the clubhouse at Sandpiper Golf course, where also hooded merganser. Still at least two yellow-crowned night-herons roosting with the black crowneds at Goleta Beach Park.
