8 Yellow-crowned Night Herons at Carpinteria Salt Marsh

Mark Bright
 

While the Yellow-crowned Night Herons at the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Preserve have been there for a long time. Today I saw eight individuals along the west bank of Franklin Creek. Six juveniles and two adults in a stretch of less than 200 feet south of the bridge. I was just surprised at the number of them hanging out in one location. Not much else but there was a juvenile Peregrine in a sycamore at Carpinteria Creek in the State Beach Campground being harassed by several crows.

Re: Scott's Oriole

I was able to get a brief look at the Scott's Oriole just before 3:45 PM today. It was closer to the end of the road from where Adrian reported it. At the top of a eucalyptus with a few starlings. Viewing was directly up and I only had the one look at the bird and was unable to find.

Thank you Nick and Adrian for posting!

Re: A.C. Bird Refuge 11-2-20

Tom Riederer
 

I was at the AC Bird Refuge this morning, Tuesday 11-3.  The Tropical Kingbird was in the exact tree that Dennis described.  On the hike back to the parking lot I saw a second Tropical Kingbird atop a juniper tree right at the first platform, near the parking lot.  I went back to the first one to make sure they weren’t the same bird, and it was still in the same spot, so there were two of them.

 

There was a Sora just to the West side of the parking lot beach, scrounging thru the reeds.  

 

BTW earlier today there was a Pine Siskin party at my home feeder, adjacent to the SBBG.  There were at least a half-dozen.

Goleta Beach and east Campus Beach, 11/3

Robert Lindsay
 

Birded these spots from 8:00 - 10:30 am today. Goleta Beach had some surprises. Saw my first adult Yellow-crowned Night Heron there (though I'm sure it's been around a while). There was a Osprey in the Eucalyptus tree just before the entrance to the east parking lot. Biggest surprise was a Black-throated Gray Warbler in Bouganvilla (sp?) on the east side of the storage yard east of the snack bar. Nothing else unusual here. Almost no waterfowl.

Tried for the Curlew Sandpiper at the east UCSB Campus Beach but could not turn it up. Still it was pretty birdy. Lots of peeps (Least Sandpiper and Sanderling), many Black Turnstone, Semipalmated and Black-bellied Plover, all five common species of large sandpipers, and a single Dunlin. Say's Phoebe were on the beach at both locations. There were also several American Pipit feeding in the dry kelp. Lots of birds, just nothing very interesting.

That's all,
Rob Lindsay

White-winged Scoter still at Ocean Beach Park this A.M., help with a Carpinteria oriole

John Callender
 

In an early-morning visit to Ocean Beach Park today the female White-winged Scoter found yesterday by Nick Lethaby was easy to see from near the parking lot. I was unable to find either the Red-necked Grebe that he saw yesterday or the Mountain Plover seen there recently. Poor-but-identifiable photos of the scoter are in this eBird list:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S75747040

I was surprised shortly after lunch today to see an oriole come to the nectar feeder outside my bedroom window. At first I thought it was a female Hooded Oriole, but after looking at references I'm no longer sure it wasn't a female Orchard Oriole. I'd appreciate hearing opinions from anyone willing to share.

North County Hits and Misses

John Deacon
 

All:

I spent most of my morning in SLO County (nice looks at a Harlequin Duck at Cal Poly Pier).  When I got back, I decided to see if I could hunt down some of our recent rarities.  The Tropical Kingbird I found last week at the North Blosser Pond was nowhere to be found.  I briefly looked for the Tropical Kingbird that was recently at Fairway and A and he was a no show also.  I checked out the SMCC for the Vermilion Flycatcher.  I looked for him yesterday while golfing and couldn't locate him.  Today I found him but he is a lot cagier than he has been in previous years.  It is possible he is tired of being bullied by the nearby Cassin's Kingbirds every time he comes out in the open.  Anyway, he's still there.  My picture in the checklist doesn't do this handsome male justice.

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S75725088
- Comments: "This bird required some thought and examination. I first thought black and white warbler it then thought Black-throated grey warbler, then settling on black-and-white warbler. It was a warbler with black and white streaking in the face and the back. Showed a white throat and a slightly curved bill. Behavior didn't seem to match a black-and-white warbler; it flew from a patch of morning glory between the brick battery building and eucalyptus at the base of the pier up into a eucalyptus where it moved around in the branches and leaves rather than the trunk. It then flew over into the willows in the direction of the wetland. No yellow seen on lore so that also helped clarify as black and white rather than Black-throated grey. I believe the white throat indicates a female bird."

Santa Ynez River Mouth

All,

I spent about 4 hours here from late morning to the afternoon. Bird numbers have really picked up here in the last 10 days since the river blocked and it is pretty birdy right now. Unlike earlier in the fall, birds are concentrated much closer to Ocean Beach Park and in the mid-afternoon onwards, you can see a lot with a good scope in good light. 

Highlight was a juvenile Red-necked Grebe, which moved between being down river around the far end of the big island and the railway bridge. There was a female/imm WW Scoter right off the car park along with a few Surf Scoters. There are plenty of Lesser Scaup and I eventually found a 1W male Greater. There were 20-30 each of Pintail, Wigeon, Redhead, and Gadwall. Shovelers, Ruddy Ducks and Coots were the predominant species. There were 4 adult Snow Geese visible upstream and 3 White Pelicans flew into the estuary mid afternoon.

The usual shorebirds and gulls continued, including 13 Bonaparte's Gulls.

Hi everyone,

I saw a Lucy’s warbler a few minutes ago in my yard around (34.4217008, -119.8784878), it flew into a busy area east of Phelps bridge. I could not get any photos but it was small, with a very light gray breast and belly, and darker gray back and wings. It had a few maroon feathers visible on its crown. The Brant found by David Blue this morning is still there in the same area.

Santiago Lupi,
