Colson Canyon

John Deacon
 

All:

Marc Moritsch and I birded Colson Canyon yesterday with the express purpose of exploring a small wetland area east of the closed Forest Service gate at the top of road.  Last week, water could be seen on the road, about 0.25 miles east of the Forest Service gate.  When we got to the location we found lots of standing and puddled water.  In the short hour we spent at the location, highlights included Black Throated Gray warbler, Bell's Sparrow (first time reported at Colson Canyon), Fox Sparrow, White Crowned Sparrow, Mountain Quail and Canyon Wren.  This little spot was so active it was hard to keep track of the bird you were trying to target.  

This spot, if anyone wants to visit it, is about 0.25 miles east of the closed gate.  We estimated the elevational change from the gate to be about 300' so it can be a bit of a hike back up the mountain.  The riparian vegetation appears well established and mature, so this site is probably wet throughout the year and likely worth additional visits.

Upland Sandpiper (Bartramia longicauda) (1)
- Reported Sep 21, 2018 09:55 by Curtis Marantz
- Santa Barbara - Elings Park, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.4093881,-119.7358704&ll=34.4093881,-119.7358704
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48661012
- Comments: "While wandering around on the hilltop this morning, I heard a plaintive, three-part series of whistled notes that I immediately recognized as the call of an Upland Sandpiper, but when I looked up toward the sky in the hope of seeing something, I never saw this bird. This bird nevertheless called three to five times as it flew at moderate altitude from west to east, seemingly without descending or landing, until I stopped hearing it. I concluded at the time that this bird was migrating and unlikely to ever be seen, but I did make a few calls a few minutes later to alert others just in case. Based on the timing of these calls, I believe I heard this bird at about 10:35 am. Shortly after I heard this bird, I transcribed the call as a soft "whit-de-deet." I will also note that the last time I thought I heard an Upland Sandpiper calling, I looked up to see this species and I was able to get a recording as it flew off. Moreover, my recollection of the call was a good match to the recording at https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/113134041."

Re: Possible Broad-winged Hawk(s) this afternoon above Bella Vista Rd

John Callender
 

The first three respondents have all pointed out that actually, the photos look more like a Swainson's Hawk. I'm fixing the list to show it as that, while leaving the first two birds as "Buteo sp.".

Thanks!

Friday birds

Hugh Ranson
 

There was a group of spizella sparrows at Elings Park by the stone bench this
morning that included six or seven Chipping Sparrows ( 3 of them streaky
juveniles) and a Brewer's Sparrow. I looked in vain for interesting warblers,
but after I left, Peggy Grossman saw two Virginia's Warblers.

La Mesa Park had a decent number of western migrants, as did Alice Keck Park
Gardens.

Possible Broad-winged Hawk(s) this afternoon above Bella Vista Rd

John Callender
 

I birded for a little over an hour this afternoon from the hawkwatch site on Bella Vista Road (the site actually on the road, next to the wall at 2755 Bella Vista Road, rather than the site up the hill reached via the Romero Canyon Trail). I was inspired to do so by Joan Lentz pointing out that there was a recent pulse of Broad-winged Hawks reported by the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory; see:

http://www.parksconservancy.org/conservation/plants-animals/raptors/research/daily-hawk-count.html

The GGRO reported 18 Broad-wingeds on Wednesday, and 5 more on Thursday. So this seemed like a good time to see if any of them were coming through the Santa Barbara area.

I saw as many as four birds that were possible Broad-winged Hawks. The first two were relatively close; they were circling directly uphill from me, right above the upper hawkwatch site. It made me wish I was up there. :-)

The two birds were circling with a pair of Red-tailed Hawks, and were noticeably smaller than them to the naked eye. I got brief views of one of the smaller hawks through binoculars, and it looked good for Broad-winged to me. I didn't study it, though; instead I tried to get photos, and unfortunately succeeded only in photographing one of the Red-taileds. Doh!

I subsequently saw two more-distant birds (or the same bird twice), flying above the ridge well to the east of the hawkwatch site. They were too far away for me to identify them through binoculars, but they looked promising. I got distant photos; you can see them in the eBird list below. I'm cautiously optimistic that they're identifiably Broad-winged, but I'd appreciate getting feedback from experts.

my wish list to see recently has been a sora and a bittern. Early this morning at Devereux by the bridge I saw a bittern fly in and then leave. Then I saw a sora slowly walking in the water and blending in with the background.

Ovenbird at Carpinteria Creek

Peter Gaede
 

Hi All:

There was an OVENBIRD working the channel today at 3PM at 6th Street. It flushed up from the middle of the channel on its own a couple of times into nearby low vegetation (willows) along the creek, but returned back to the creek to forage each time. There is very little flow in the channel at this location, but the ground is damp. If anyone remembers where the Prothonotary Warbler was in fall 2016, it was in this same spot.

Re: [EXTERNAL] [sbcobirding] this morning in Goleta

Nick Lethaby
 

As an FYI, I checked out the tipus briefly yesterday at Logmein by the west end of Hollister. I had about 10 warblers and there were probably more. So these tipus are holding quite  a few birds.

Hi All:  This morning I birded with Mark Holmgren, and we tried to hit some “different” locations.

            Our first stop, at the Atascadero Creek bridge over South Patterson, was a bust.  Just nothing happening.  We also walked over to Diegaard (sp.?) Nursery to check out the spring, zero.

            Then, I thought about the T. tipu trees along Mentor Drive.  Here you’re taking Ekwill Dr. west off South Patterson, and ending up at Mentor Drive, which is a huge industrial building complex packed with tipu trees.  

            The trees were packed with all the common western migrant warblers, but even better was the water feature, a lovely pond with running water at the north end of the complex.  Here, we simply sat and enjoyed the show of masses of common warblers coming down to drink.  Too bad there was nothing special among them.  Caution:  this is private property, and perhaps not good to be there during lunch hour when the workers are trying to enjoy the patio?

            Anyway, after that, the morning went downhill.  We checked Stow Grove Park — nothing of interest, the parking lot at LLC, and the spot where Mark had found the Eastern Kingbird at the corner of Glen Annie and Cathedral Oaks:  zero, zip for all of these places.

Gaviota SP - Northern Waterthrush

Peter Schneekloth
 

I felt very lucky to see just briefly a Northern Waterthrush at Gaviota State Park this morning. It was seen for a moment along the edge of the creek while I was standing on the bridge looking E just before the entry kiosk. I spent a little time looking for the Black-throated Sparrow Wes reported yesterday but no luck. An Osprey flyover was pretty cool.

A bit earlier in the morning I was at Refugio and had Hermit and Nashville Warblers along with Yellow, Wilsons, Orange-crowned (one of those pesky ones you really want to call a Tenn.) and Yellow-rumped. A Peregrine was seen as well.

The Waterthrush and some of the others here:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/55934026@N05/44778944172/in/dateposted-public/

This morning around 9:00 there was a large flock of common western migrants on the south side of this park in the lerpy eucs. Wilson’s Warblers were the most numerous, but there were many Black-throated Grays — I actually lost count of them! — along with Yellow Warblers, a few Townsend’s, and a few Orange-crowneds. Two or three Western Tanagers came through as well.
