Birds of interest were...
8- American White Pelican 
18-Canvasback
4-American Wigeon
4- Ring Neck Ducks
7-DCC’s (thought to be a lot for here)
The Goldfinches were represented well with Lawrence’s, Americans, and Lessers all chattering.
1-Cassins Kingbird 
Would’ve loved to spend more time on the tall Eucalyptus trees at the west end as they seemed to be very birdy.

The Killing of a Baikal Teal applauded by Ducks Unlimited

Rob Denholtz
 

Believing that Ducks Unlimited shared out love of wildlife and of waterfowl in particular, I recently sent them a donation and joined. I received my first issue of their magazine today only to read a brief article about one David Reed having killed a Baikal Teal. Instead of admonishing the ignorance of such an act, they referred to Reed as “the lucky hunter.” I will not longer send them my membership dues.

I emailed them the following:

"I am a bird watcher. For years I'd heard how Ducks Unlimited, has been in league with birders in championing habitat protection to promote the betterment of waterfowl. A noble endeavor. In view of our joint concerns I recently sent in a donation and became a member of DU. I received my first DU magazine today. I was disappointed and, in fact, horrified in learning of the killing of a Baikal Teal. This is an extraordinarily rare species having been recorded in North America only a few times. It was extraordinarily short-sighted of you to applaud this bird's killing in "California Hunter Bags Baikal Teal.” Referring to David Reed as "the lucky hunter" struck me as hypocritical and ignorant as to the mindlessness of this act. If Reed had been a true hunter in the finest sense of the word he would have known which species he was aiming at and would have appreciated the significance of not shooting at it. And, if the editors of the magazine had any true love of the waterfowl they represent, they would have published an admonishment rather than an adulation of this act.”

I think they need to hear from more of us.

Re: some good news re target shooting

Wes Fritz
 

Hi All,
I agree with Nick. I actually enjoyed seeing all the different rifles, hand guns and home made “ black powder”canons in these designated areas. ( I DO NOT ENDORSE AUTOMATIC WEAPONS or BUMP STOCKS)I also enjoyed seeing family units exercising their rights of the “ Second Amendment of the United States Constitution” out there teaching their children how to handle and respect these fire arms. I do not like to see all the trash left behind, but they would have designated days for trash removal, they would even give out T-shirts for the participants. So, where does my family go to sight in their guns now?
 We could join the Winchester Gun Club, but it costs $150. Per person per year and a $50. Initiation fee.
  The real gun issue is people out hunting for Mountain Quail and deer. As many of us birders like to wear earth tone clothing. And we are out birding off trail, well, at least I am. This is the scary part for me! We as birders are a extremely low percentage of all the users of all the National Forests. And if you are an Ebirder then you are giving the hunters a direct connection to where the quails ( species)are, how many Quail were there and the date and how long it took you to see these numbers. How far you had to walk, along with the time you spent at this location with the Lat&Long attached. And if you add photos, this will really promote hunting in these locations. They figure if you can get a photo, they definitely can get a few shots off. And if there is a history of lists or it is a “ HOT SPOT” these new savvy hunters are headed there first. 
  They actually have hunting classes and seminars to help hunters find more birds. The awesome part is, they claim to be able to find more birds electronically, yep Ebird!

I apologize for drifting away from the main topic, but it is gun related, it is in our backyard forest and covers birdwatching.

I really do not think that a designated area the size of a football field is that much to give up for gun enthusiasts, as they out number the birders by a huge margin.

I guess the bottom line is, you have to go up to our mountains to go birding before you can go up there to bird by ear. I have never had an issue with too much gun fire in 20+ years and I still detect birds ear.

Make America great again?

Wes

What’s new in the Breeding Bird Study?

Mark Holmgren
 

Over the winter UCSB intern Marissa DeVille and I harvested Don Schroeder’s bridge nesting data from the 1970s.  For his UCSB dissertation Don visited bridges, culverts, buildings, and natural nest sites documenting Black Phoebe nesting outcomes.  Other species than Black Phoebes nest under bridges and Don gathered that information also. 


Dig into the BBS to find out how many species nest under bridges in SB Co?  Here’s how:

Go to go to the SB Audubon web site https://santabarbaraaudubon.org/santa-barbara-county-breeding-bird-study/  OR take this shortcut https://goo.gl/AJQxKj to get to the BBS data.

Put the Google Fusion Table in Map mode > Satellite view

Click the blue Filter button > choose Nest Species/Structure

Type bridge in the box, click Find.  302 records will show on the aerial photo.

Add a second Filter.

Click the blue  Filter button > choose Common Name

To sort these, look to the right of Common Name for the 3 horizontal lines. Click on the 3 lines and choose Sort by Count.

Pretty interesting result, huh!

 

So what’s the value of these bridge nesting data?

1.    It’s just good to know this stuff!

2.    We can see species by species where they are breeding. For example, go back to the filters you have set up and click the box next to White-throated Swift. Now, only the White-throated Swift records will show on the aerial photo.  Surely there are other bridges than just these 10 sites that support WtSw.  Let’s go find those other nest sites this summer.

3.    We could look at changes over time. I.e., one could add a 3rd Filter (Date) and select records before 2000 and after 2000 to see how the birds are doing at bridges or how bridge construction is changing the opportunities for bird nesting.

4.    Are any rare, threatened, or declining species using bridges? (I don’t see any.)

5.    CalTrans may appreciate an inventory of animals using its bridges.  It has used the BBS at an earlier stage to address impacts near Hwy 217.

6.    All sorts of classroom fun could come from this kind of query.

 Marissa and I have lots more of Don Schroeder’s data yet to enter.

Many thanks to Marissa and to Don.

2 Special Red-tailed Hawks

Mark Holmgren
 

A really beautiful leucistic Red-tailed Hawk is back this winter and once again it has a partner.  And a dark morph Red-tail is on territory for its 11th spring. 

You’ve read about this leucistic bird previously.  Why the fuss about this bird? What can repeat observations of this bird tell us?

Four approaches to bird study and appreciation are available to us in SB County.  We can acquire in-depth knowledge of birds through field study, museum collections, the scientific or popular literature on birds, and  photography to capture images we bring home to study.

A 5th approach to bird study is largely missing for us. Bird banding and electronic tracking operations would inform us about movements at local and larger scales, bird survivorship and longevity, molt, disease transmission, general health, and more.  Unlike Klamath, Marin, Kern, and other counties, SB County has no formal banding station. While we recover birds banded elsewhere, and we have had a few focused banding studies, we lack a fixed location, long-term bird banding operation. 

Therefore, when we find unique individuals – birds that are rare, leucistic or melanistic, maimed, feather damaged, or birds with song anomalies – that can be observed repeatedly, we are given the opportunity to obtain insights to local movements, territoriality, and longevity. 

David Levasheff’s pictures of this Red-tail from 2015 are seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/levaweb/albums/72157655950301764

We’ve seen this bird in winter and spring since 2015, but not during the winter of 2018-19.  We have never found its nest nor do we have any summer sightings.  Yet this bird is currently paired and has been seen in recent weeks.  Help us find this bird’s nest probably within ½ mile west of Los Carneros in Goleta.  See the mapped history of its previous sightings in the attached aerial photo.

Another probably unique Red-tailed Hawk is in western Goleta Slough at UCSB.  In recent years a dark morph, male Red-tail has occupied the same territory immediately west of Harder Stadium. Because we have so few dark morph Red-tails in coastal south county, it seems safe to assume that a male turning up here year after year is probably the same individual.  My records show the earliest date for this bird is October 2009.  Therefore, this bird has been on territory for at least 11 seasons.  You can view this bird from Mesa Road looking south. See aerial photo attached.

Help build the Breeding Bird Study, now in its 4 year of data gathering.  I expect to be a part of this project for another year after this one.  If you might be interested in carrying this study forward after 2020, please let that be known to Adrian O’Loghlen and me sooner than later.  Contribute your breeding records at SB Audubon https://santabarbaraaudubon.org/sb-breeding-bird-survey-data-submittal/

Re: American White Pelican

Ken Hoesterey
 

Hi, The Magnificent Seven White Pelicans were resting and preening at the Goleta Slough outlet beach under the GBH rookery.
Many visitors were very happy to see them there, all seem to have a degree of bump on their upper bills.
They seemed very comfortable except for when a beach walker walked along the cliff and then  to the end of the sand under the rookery, they moved out into the water until he left, other than that they were cozy.
Cheers

Mountain Chickadee in the Westside

Hot on the heels of the Pygmy Nuthatch at the Gaede abode, I was surprised to hear and then see a Mountain Chickadee near the south-east corner of the La Cumbre Junior High campus, specifically at the intersection of Portesuello and Vista Del Campo.

Re: American White Pelican

Ken Hoesterey
 

Hi
As of 4 o'clock the seven were there still, team feeding (3) and the three on the bank resting and one exploring. The fishing three then went around the corner up the Atascadero Creek arm, still Team Swimming.
  It is terrific to watch them fish and do their thing...next to the Cormorants they are giants!
Kingfisher was there on the wire hoping to see thru the fast muddy water.

When I got there at 11 am the juvenile Red Tail was drying out on the phone pole, watched carefully by the local neighborhood watch. He flew as the crow and two blackbirds started after him.
This juvenile that is likely the offspring of the Gas Company pair that was flying as a threesome last fall. The Goleta Beach Park is his new territory, so far. The park staff said he had been seen  harassing the Night Herons.
If he was in the surf perhaps he is now learning about shorebirds?
Good luck to him, he'll need it.
cheers
Ken Hoesterey
