Cattle Egret at Carp Salt Marsh

John Callender
 

I saw a Cattle Egret in the Carpinteria Salt Marsh this afternoon. It was just inside the restricted access portion of the marsh at Estero Way, in the drainage channel that runs west from the Estero Way gate, parallel to the train tracks. I saw it for a few minutes, then was distracted by a human interaction and when I looked back the bird was gone. I looked for another half hour or so but couldn’t refind it.


Re: Warblers, Elings Park

Peter Gaede
 

One Virginia’s was present at the top of Elings Park this evening, seen by Larry Sansone and I around 6:30PM. It showed little to no yellow on the breast.

I went to Elings Park this evening. The light was poor and the fog was swirling.
It seemed very quiet until I saw 3 distant warblers in the same fennel clump.
All were what I assumed to be Nashville Warblers. They soon dispersed, but not
before I got slightly better looks. All were very drab, the brightest areas
being the yellow undertails and the white eyerings. One had a yellow wash
across the chest, but I couldn't make out any yellow on the others. I've been
fooled by dull Nashville Warblers before, so I hesitate to say these were not
Nashville's especially because of the poor viewing conditions. Which is a
longwinded way of saying there could be Virginia's Warblers up there. They were
close to the green water tank, just east of the paragliding take off area.

Other birds up there were Lark Sparrow and Say's Phoebe. There were two large
flocks of bushtits feeding in the fennel, indicating there is a good food
source.

This afternoon also had a marsh wren and an ash-throated flycatcher - I assume the same one George Roland saw a week or so ago.

Carp area birds

Nick Lethaby
 

All,

This morning I checked out the Tams and the ag fields at the east side of Carpinteria. The tams were birdless but the ag area had a female/imm Vermillion Flycatcher, quite possibly the bird from Carp Creek yesterday.

Carp Creek is, as Peter Gaede mentioned, much easier to walk down the creek bed now. One thing hasn't changed though - there are still no birds! I heard the waterthrush calling just S of 6th street but couldn't get a look at it.

Most distinguishing characteristics are complete eyerings, heavily streaked/spotted breast, a tail that is mostly kept erect. Back is greenish brown and a malar stipe is a rusty color, though not always seen.
This bird was silent but it is also sometimes called Teacher bird because of its call. Over the time I observed several groups of bicyclists passed on the path as well as dogs. The bird would then reappear in another later after being scared off.
It is a very small bird that in many ways resembles a Hermit Thrush. All photos are heavily cropped."

Ovenbird

I just saw the Ovenbird at Coronado casually walking down the dirt path below the carwash on the far side of the creek. It showed no fear and even walked toward me in the open. Also seen in the open area beyond the private property sign next to the carwash were a Pac-slope Flycatcher & Ash-throated Flycatcher.

Ovenbird - Coronado

Dika Golovatchoff
 

I just got back from watching the rare Ovenbird that was reported and beautifully photographed by David Levasheff yesterday.  I've posted a few photos of not near that quality on my Flickr site.  Other birders present included Rob Lindsay, Dolores and Bill Polock, and Steve Gaulin.  A California Thrasher and Spotted Towhee were also seen.  It was quite overcast in the morning.

Also, last night I was pleasantly surprised to view the White-faced Ibis at the Bird Refuge lakeshore from parking lot and then 3rd viewing platform.  I love that evening light.

Ovenbird

Robert Lindsay
 

Saturday, 9/8, 9:30 am

 

The Ovenbird made another very rewarding appearance at the previously reported spot and was out hopping on the road leading through the eucalyptus grove about 150 yards east of the car wash. It spends a lot of time in thick vegetation bordering this area but will come out at times for those patient enough to stay.

 

The Coronado Seep was less rewarding. An hour of observation turned up no more than a California Towhee and a few California Scrub Jays.._The viewing area has become quite overgrown but the is one decent window from which to view the puddle.

 

The first Devereux pull-out,was as dry and birdless as I've ever seen it..Oceanward from the second pull-out (bridge to nowhere) were five Phalaropes but too far away to ID to species without a scope. Nothing else of interest.

 

That's all,

Rob Lindsay_,_

- Comments: "Continuing. Large warbler, brownish olive above, prominent white eye ring, heavy black streaking on white underparts, black stripe above eye on side of crown, broad orange central crown stripe visible when the bird was facing away. Held tail up while it walk/hopped on the ground, frequently flicking the tail upward. Bird was foraging in the path where it had previously been reported when I arrived; after a few minutes it flew into the underbrush south of the path, then returned to the path behind (west of) me. Very cooperative!"

- Comments: "Found earlier today by Ron Hirst and refound by Nick Lethaby. On the main trail near the series of manholes. Foraging on the ground, on and near the trail. In the company of other ground foragers - several Song Sparrows, California Towhee and a California Thrasher. Would dart around jerkily and then slow down with a very distinctive pattern of movement - stopping to lift and hold up one foot, then the other, almost like a prance. Brown above, white below. White eye ring, black spots in tracks on underside, orange crown stripe with black edges. Crisp and bright. Will add photos. "

I had good views of the bird this morning at 6:35; on the same path where it was seen yesterday. Near (34.4230499,-119.8861931).

Super photos and on your flicker site too. When I saw the bird it was agitated and had erected the orange crown feathers making them tangerine. Best, Ron
