- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48831271
- Comments: "When I looked overhead to explain to Libby what the "little hawk" flying with the Turkey Vultures was, I saw a small Buteo, very pale, almost white underneath, with no patagial marks on the leading edges of the wings. The wings were outlined with black, and slightly pointed at the tip. However, the whole bird was a classic Buteo shape, except small, with a small broad tail which appeared to have some bands on it, but by that time the bird was so distant I really couldn't make out those details. As I said above, the Broad-winged Hawk was flying in a loose association with a kettle of Turkey Vultures, and once it finished circling high above us, it flew very rapidly in an eastward direction. I called Conor up at the Bella Vista hawkwatch station hoping he might've gotten onto it, but I am afraid the bird was flying too far out onto the coastal plain for hawkwatchers up there to have seen it. I had just observed 4 of this species day before yesterday at the Bella Vista site, so I felt confident in identifying this bird as it circled gradually higher and higher overhead and then flew directly east. It was a life bird for Libby."

Warblers Alice Keck Park

Dika Golovatchoff
 

I was under the Tipuana Tipu trees watching a variety of warblers when a group from the WFO arrived.  I followed the talk (which I learned was given by Jon Dunn) and in the process was able to see and photograph, though poorly, a Blackpoll Warbler for the first time.  We also saw Wilson's, Black-throated Gray, Yellow-Rumped, and a Nashville.  A House Wren was vocalizing.  As the group was leaving I saw Joan Lentz with a group of birders who was helping John.  It was a good morning.  I believe that the fact that the creek is now clean as is the pond has something to do with the presence of so many warblers.

Yesterday I tried the hawk watch at Bella Vista where several of us saw Cooper's, Sharp-shinned, and Red-tailed but alas no Broad-winged.  I realized that to see the hawks really required a scope since they are quite distant.  Perhaps I'll give that a try later today.


HAWKWATCH - Sunday AM

Julie Scotland
 

Conor and I just spent 2 hours (9:30 AM to 11:30 AM) at the Bella Vista Hawkwatch spot. The highlights were a single BROAD-WINGED HAWK (11 AM), SWAINSON’S HAWK (10:52 AM), a ROCK WREN that perched on the wire in front of us and called for awhile, and 2 RAVENS flying North. Also seen: Many COOPER’S, SHARP-SHINNED, RED-TAILED HAWKS, plus a single RED-SHOULDERED and KESTRAL made an apppearance.

FYI: The owners of the house we’ve all been watching outside of drove by to see what we were up to but seemed friendly and simply curious about what everyone has been doing.

Happy birding,
Julie Scotland

"Solitary" Vireo - Home sweet home

OK so I just had this in my yard. Sorry to keep doing this but comments please???? I don't see any green on this bird, one fairly good shot and the only other a pretty out of focus shot of the back.

Re: Broad-winged Hawk over my driveway!!

Florence Sanchez
 

No luck on this one at the Bell Vista Hawk watch site, at least not as of the time I left.  Very dull day up there even though conditions were good for viewing.  I arrived at the site probably just after the Broadwinged-Harrier combo flew over.   Oh Well.

(PS Morning WFO workshop on bird sounds was terrific.)

Hi All:
    I don’t expect you to believe this:  but Libby Patten and I were standing in my driveway after she dropped me off from our time in Ventura at the science lectures for WFO (what a neat organization that is, you should all be members — very tops), and we looked up and saw a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk circling overhead, which was being chased by a crow, and we talked about that - chit-chat, chit-chat, and then we looked up again and a kettle of about 7 Turkey Vultures was building up over head and Libby said:  What’s that little one with them?  And I had my binocs, looked at the small buteo, all white underneath, with black wingtips, and I started jumping up and down saying “That’s a Broad-winged Hawk!”  right over my driveway in Montecito.
    Then I called Conor Scotland whom I knew was up at the Bella Vista Hawkwatch spot, & told him to look southeast.  But seriously, I think this bird was too low and too far out on the coastal plain for him to be able to see it.
    So that’s my crazy day, aren’t we glad we’re birders?  Just so confusing to know what route these hawks are taking.  This sighting was at 4:45 pm this afternoon.

Black-chinned Hummer

Hugh Ranson
 

This afternoon at the end of Coronado in Ellwood there was a late female
Black-chinned Hummer (unless of course it was a Ruby-throated...). Photos
available upon request. It was coming into a yard with feeders a few houses to
the east of the end of Coronado.

Santa Ynez Peak - Tennessee Warbler and more

Peter Schneekloth
 

Went up to west Camino Cielo hoping for some hawk movement but it was quite socked in most of the way along the crest. It finally opened up (off and on) near Santa Ynez Peak where I also found Brad Hacker. As we stood and compared birding notes we were adjacent to a small patch of trees and shrubs which was quite birdy. This was one of the few parts of the peak sticking above the clouds so the birds were maybe finding it that way. While Brad was present we had Orange-crowned, Townsends and Nashville Warbler, multiple Swainson's Thrush, at least 2 Western Tanager, Purple Finch, Rufous-crowned Sparrow and a good number of White-crowned Sparrow. Brad reported having seen Rock Wren and Golden-crowned Sparrow before our paths crossed. After Brad and I parted ways I went back to the little hot spot and birds just continued to drop in. Tennessee Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Chipping Sparrow and Black-headed Grosbeak were added to the list. The only hawks were two Sharp-shinned and a few local Red-tails.

Looks at the Tenn. and Chippers here:

Coastal hotspots today

Rebecca Coulter
 

This morning I toured 3 coastal spots, hoping for some land bird activity. Like our barely changing sycamores and poison oak, signs of fall were very subtle on the bird front. I spent the most time at El Capitan State Beach, thinking it may not have been covered as much as other coastal spots lately. What used to be a really productive fall morning’s walk through the campground was largely devoid of birds today. I’m not sure if others have noticed that there is almost no fruit on the holly-leaf cherry in most places around town; I found the same at this location, with large patches of dead foliage on most. No tanagers or grosbeaks anywhere, and migrant warblers were scarce, with a Wilson’s, a few Townsend’s and a Black-throated Gray on the nature trail loop to the beach. I was surprised by two Western Wood-Pewee hawking insects along the trail. The creek is totally dry all the way to the ocean.

A quick stop at Refugio SB continued the recent theme of “funereal,” though I didn’t stay long due to some prolonged screaming in the campground. My last stop was a walk at Gaviota to the Wind Caves trailhead. Almost 100% bird-free, though it was near noon by then. A flock of Bushtits and a Song Sparrow were the only birds I saw in the fennel. On the return walk I watched the ridge over Gaviota Peak for any signs of raptor movement. A dozen or so Turkey Vultures moved mostly southeast, and way in the distance was a clear group—maybe 10 birds—of smaller, flatter-winged raptors of some sort, moving rapidly east. I didn’t have a scope, though at that distance I doubt it would’ve been too helpful. But they were intriguing.

A quiet day on the coast overall. The Cal Thrashers are pretty vocal right now, though, which is always such a treat and made the day.

MacGillivray’s

Thomas Turner
 

There is a MacGillivray’s Warbler in the blackberry thicket behind Fortuna Park, in Isla Vista. It looked like an adult male to me. See the dropped pin below for exact location where I saw it.

Re: Attempted Hawk Watch E of Santa Maria

Ken Hoesterey
 

Hi
I remember reports from Farren Road that were suggestive that the low saddle west of the gun club/east of broadcast peak may be a good passage way. Waterbirds were seen going up canyon if I recall..

Probably one could drive to the spot west of the saddle via Refugio then east on Camino Cielo. At that point the road becomes very rough dirt, but one could stay at the higher elevation and have the afternoon sun behind you, also allowing you a view downslope north and south. 

     The last time I was there I went back out after dark and many small owls were dashing out into the car lights all the way back to Refugio Road.

Another potential view spot at Gaviota would be the trail going up past the wind caves west of 101 that at the saddle can take you out to the overlook spot above the tunnel and rest stops, west of the Trespass Trail spot already mentioned. Go past the campground and up the hill, park at the top for the trailhead.
happy hawking,
Ken Hoesterey


Golden Eagle on Franklin Trail

Mario Borunda
 

I hiked Franklin Trail up to the 4 mile mark from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  I had 15 raptor sightings on the way up and down.  Nine of the sightings were between the 3 mile and 4 mile markers.  The most exciting was a Golden Eagle at about 3.5 miles.  It approached from the southeast, large and very dark- it seemed black.  It came in from above and I could see the white patches at the base of the primaries on the underside of the wing.  As it flew by me it dropped down and I could see the bright white tail with black tips, and a brownish/gold back of the head.  It was a thrill!

I also saw a singular Broad Winged Hawk just past the 4 mile mark.  Light colored underneath with black tips and black trailing edge on wings.  Black and white barred tail very distinct.  Also saw one on the way back at about 1.5 miles flying with three Red Tails, although it broke off after a few minutes.  The three Red Tails were very scruffy.  One was particularly tattered, missing several feathers and looked like it had just been through the ringer. The other two looked similar, although not quite as scruffy.  

Others included 2 Cooper's, 2 Cooper/Sharpie (to far to tell which), 3 Kestrels, and 5 Red Tails in total.  

Also saw some returning birds: White crown sparrow, several Yellow rumped warblers, and two Western Meadowlarks.

It was quite overcast up to the 3 mile mark.  After the Duca Bench (3.3 miles) it was sunny, blue sky, and warm. That is the section where I saw most of the raptors.  
Regards, Mario


Attempted Hawk Watch E of Santa Maria

Peter Schneekloth
 

I found a peak at the S end of Colson Canyon that gave good 360 degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys so thought I would at least give it a go for hawk movement. I spent from 10:00 am until noon hoping to see some movement. Location here:
https://mapper.acme.com/?ll=34.93208,-120.16640&z=12&t=T&marker0=34.93208%2C-120.16640%2C23.2%20km%20NxNE%20of%20Los%20Alamos%20CA

Notes as follows:
10:00 Clear, mid 50's gentle breeze from S, visible marine layer out on coastal plain
10:38 2 Coopers Hawks moving S
10:58 1 Coopers 1 Red-tailed moving about likely local birds
11:03 2 Common Raven moving from NW to SE
11:15 Wind picks up considerably but still from S
11:35 3 Red-tailed milling about to the west, likely local birds
11:45 1 Sharp-shinned moving rapidly from N to S

There were White-throated Swift moving about some at very close range and I also had some Coopers not listed above but moving around like locals and at very close range. 1 Tree Swallow and 3 Violet-green Swallow moved by.

On to plan C tomorrow., maybe a spot on W Camino Cielo

Carp Police Station Tams - Blackpoll Warbler

Conor Scotland
 

There was a Blackpoll Warbler today around lunch time in the Carp police station tams. The tams were largely quiet, with very few birds seen until I encountered a mixed flock near where the big rock piles are. Associating with many gnatcatchers were Warbling Vireos, Pac Slope Flycatchers, Black-throated Gray and Townsend's Warblers, and the Blackpoll warbler. After about 5 minutes, the flock moved on and I couldn't relocate it.

Chestnut-sided at Alice Keck?

Libby Patten
 

I'm fairly certain I had a Chestnut-sided Warbler in the large Tipu tree in the southwest corner by Arrellaga this morning. It was all white underneath, had wide, bright yellow wingbars, greenish back. The wingbars really popped out at me. I lost it before I could get a more solid ID. I hope someone else finds it again and gets a better look. 

Also saw the Blackpoll Warbler several times and many of the more common warblers as well.

- Comments: "We were able to get onto a group of 4 small sized buteos flying fairly close together and headed east/southeast. From above, the birds appeared chocolate brown all over, and I found it hard to detect the banded tails at a distance. However, when the birds banked, at least two of them were very pale underneath, almost white, with dark wingtips along the outside edge of the primaries. One individual showed more markings below, with a somewhat darker head and more dark details in the underwings. Although the birds were distant, they circled slowly and we were able to get extended views, which was a huge help. Both John Callender and Curtis Marantz took photos."
