I'm very sad to report the death of Santa Barbara birding legend Karen Bridgers.
She died this afternoon in Utah with her family at her side. She's flying with
the Red-headed Woodpeckers...

Re: safety reminder, upper SYR and Mono Ck

Jim Greaves <lbviman@...>
 

I also remind people that in heavy rain years like this, rattlesnakes
are washed down into the riparian zones, and may be disoriented in
the process of having been displaced... Always, if you can afford the
100 bucks or so, wear snake boots or at least good calf-high types,
if you are serious about "going forth". The MANY times I "almost"
stepped on them I cannot recall - but it was MANY - and most were
during the time I wore thin, cheap shoes with velcro from K-mart...
even got "hit" by one in some cottonwood duff, wearing same, but the
3+ ft long snake was 15 or more feet away, going backwards, rattling,
by the time I "fell to earth" from my 4 foot leap! More afraid of me,
than it needed to be... And watch out for little ones that can creep
up on a hand holding you upright while seated while you eat lunch...
Of course, AFTER I bought several pairs of snake boots, I rarely if
ever encountered them! Go figure. I think I was more watchful,
knowing the low ankle on cheap shoes was no protection... Generally,
they are "relatively benign"... during the drought of 1989-90 [I
think it was 1990], in mid summer, I had the good fortune of seeing
one with its head stuck down what looked like a hole a skunk might
have made in Mono Ck... at the bottom of which was a smear of
water... missed that photo op, and it slithered away.


Re: Added photo - our last Bell's Vireo nest

Jim Greaves <lbviman@...>
 

Thanks Nick. I never hiked from C.Cielo, so wasn't sure of distance. I did hike from Pendola (middle syr campground) that one year, after an all-night rain "shower" that filled the river and creek and made the road a delight! In any case, even after a few days of sun, one can expect to get one's feet quite wet this time of year, given the amount of rain to date - and NEVER discount late April to early May for rain - my son and I had to do a slip and slide in my 4wd pickup along the admin road to Upper Oso one time, making it only by sheer luck of gravity and NOT using 4wd in the slime... a longer ride and a bit spooky considering it was still raining the whole way from Mono - Jim

Anyway - I still hope there are adventurous folks out there willing to hike, bike, trek, camp, and enjoy what is perhaps the ONLY truly "naturally wild" and NON-wilderness sections of Santa Barbara County. Bobcats, skunks, weasels, black bears, cougars... I've seen them all back there during my "tenure", including hearing cougars calling at night above or along Mono Ck at Mono Campground, before the Sunburst Farm group removed their 100s of sheep back in the late 1970's... First bear I encountered, I thought was a wild pig... but could never prove it to be porcine.

My recollection is that it is a 10-12 mile round trip down into LBVI area from Camino Cielo down the Cold Springs Trail. I did the hike once to get the bird. It's pretty rough because you have a 2000 ft climb on the way out, after you have already walked about 7 miles ....

I think I went in a low water year. It might be challenging to cross the SYR this year.

Bird Refuge Swan

Guy Tingos <guy.tingos@...>
 

The swan was at the west end of the Andree Clark Bird Refuge this afternoon, right in front of the viewing platform closest to the zoo.  I don’t have a lot of experience with swans but what I saw seemed a better match for Tundra than the alternatives: eye appearing separate from bill, yellow lore spots, broad arc of top of bill between the eyes, round head not in line with slope of bill.

Botanic Garden this morning

Florence Sanchez
 

I spent a couple of hours in the Garden this morning.  I did not find the level of Warbler activity that Guy Tingos did last Friday, but migrants and summer residents were still making their presence known.

I had at least four Warbling Vireos at several places along Mission creek and above the dam.  Also above the dam, I had a Yellow-rump and a Wilson's Warbler.  The resident Orange-crowns were very active physically and vocally, and a Common Yellowthroat was singing in its usual location about a 100 feet below the Campbell Bridge.  House Wrens were also very vocal, and a pair is nesting behind the singles of one of the staff houses as it has for the past several years.  I was also very pleased to find Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers on the East Slope, just below the Porter Trail.  They were not present last year.  Also on the East Slope, I had an Ash-throated Flycatcher. 

My most interesting bird was an Empid that was NOT a Pacific-slope Flycatcher.  It landed slightly above me in an oak tre just below the Pritchett Trail and was partially blocked from view.  It was small, compact, wth definite wingbars, but I never got a good look at the face.   It called three times:  a short "pink" followed immediately by a buzzy two-note call reminiscent of Willow's "REE-bew" but very short.  In fact, at first I thought it must be a Willow's but the "jiz" and the call just didn't seem right.  It then dropped down into the oak woodland below and I could not refind it.  Checking several calls after I got home, I think this was a Hammond's.  The call note was correct and the following notes sounded very much like a partial Hammond's song.

In spite of plenty of attractive blooms, the south coast hummingbird dearth was very evident here.  I had a hummingbird species zoom by me on the Porter Trail, and a female Rufous/Allen's above the dam.  That was it!

Re: Swan ID - Andree Clark Bird Refuge

Noah Arthur
 

In this photo, there's clearly patchy yellow extending down to the cutting edges of the bill. A.k.a. a large yellow area on the bill. This bird still looks like something Asian to me; either Bewick's or Whooper.

That's an odd bird,

I spotted a swan in Andree Clark

Bird Refuge this morning, on the west side near the SB
zoo.

It's not a mute swan. I tentatively IDed it as a
tundra

swan, but I would appreciate the insights of someone
with

more expertise. Sorry for the poor photo quality.

Here are a couple more photos. My feeling is it's a Tundra Swan. You can click
on the photos to get a closer look.

People should know that I've received emails from a couple of people
expressing the sentiment that this bird might be a hybrid involving Mute,
per one of Noah's suggestions.

It's not a mute swan. I tentatively IDed it as a tundra
swan, but I would appreciate the insights of someone with
more expertise. Sorry for the poor photo quality.

Cuyama

Brad Hacker <bradley_r_hacker@...>
 

Made a sweep through Cuyama today, with the principal objectives being Bell's, Black-Chinned, and Brewer's Sparrows. Only found Bell's Sparrows, in Qatal and Ballinger Canyons. Very pleasant day with temperatures initially of 32F, climbing to 75F.

I found a weird thrasher with a white mask; I'd appreciate comments from those who can ID the species. There are some rotten pictures here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35980539

Re: Swan ID - Andree Clark Bird Refuge

Dave Compton
 

Just looked at these, first on my phone and then on my monitor. I think we can all agree this bird is not (1) a Mute Swan or (2) a Trumpeter Swan. The first look on my phone really got my attention because of what I first perceived to be a large yellowish area on the bill. But zooming in on the image, and then looking at it on my monitor, shows what looks to me like a discrete area of yellow as an adult Tundra (Whistling) would have, and a pale, off-color area next to the yellow. I suspect this is your basic Tundra, and that pale area will soon enough turn black. This is a young bird transitioning to a more adult appearance. And part of the bill is still clearly pink. So it would be interesting to see this bird when the pink has all gone. 

Of course, if I'm right, this is still a nice bird for the location and the time of year. I've never seen one here in April, and this is only a few days from being record late here. If I'm not right, I'd be happy to be corrected, and really hope this bird stays around.

I spotted a swan in Andree Clark
Bird Refuge this morning, on the west side near the SB zoo.
It's not a mute swan. I tentatively IDed it as a tundra
swan, but I would appreciate the insights of someone with
more expertise. Sorry for the poor photo quality.

Re: Swan ID - Andree Clark Bird Refuge

That's an odd bird, and likely Asian IMHO... If a Tundra, it's an Old World 'Bewick's' Swan, given all the yellow on the bill. Another possibility might be immature Whooper Swan, and yet another might be MuteXTundra... But I'm no expert when it comes to swans...

Swan ID - Andree Clark Bird Refuge

Christopher Kibler
 

I spotted a swan in Andree Clark Bird Refuge this morning, on the west side near the SB zoo. It's not a mute swan. I tentatively IDed it as a tundra swan, but I would appreciate the insights of someone with more expertise. Sorry for the poor photo quality.


Thanks,

Although not that unusual, we had a Western Tanager at our bird bath in Orcutt this morning.  Other noteworthy yard birds this a.m. were BH Grosbeaks, White Throated Sparrow, Hooded Oriole and Bullocks Orioles.
