Date   
Another Rose-breasted Grosbeak

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

On Sunday, in addition to the continuing female-type  American Redstart that Alex A. found yesterday and still present today on Pio Pico, there is an adult male Rose-breasted Grosbeak along Albion between Dudley and DuPont. Otherwise only a precious few handful of migrants in the area.

Purple Martins, Empids, Borrego Springs WTP

Greg Gillson
 

Strong winds arrived at dawn. Blowing 25-35 mph. Two Purple Martins flying over the desert calling with buzzy chirps. Female types, with pale collars. 

Flycatchers dropped in over night. About 9 Pac-slope, 7 Willow, 2 Pewees hiding near the ground on the lee side of mesquite trees. All singing and calling. I should have many good photos to work with when I get home after the long weekend. 

8:30 am, and seems birding is done for the day in the desert. At least I found some warm and not rainy weather.

La Jolla Cove May 27: black-vents

Stan Walens
 

I arrived at the Cove at 6:30. Turbulent waters make it hard to see the storm petrels. Most amazing is a swarm of black vented shearwaters, possibly 600 to 800 with more coming up from the south. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many in late May.

The finder just posted this to Facebook:
Spotted this Hudsonian Godwit today at the San Diego River tidal Mudflats at about 8:45 this morning. It was foraging with some Marbled Godwits bouncing back and forth between the east end of Dog Beach and the center mudflat. First for San Diego I believe.

Hudsonian godwit continues

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

the hudsonian godwit continues on the mud flats at Robb Field, San Diego River mouth, at 2:30 and it is finding lots of food in the mud so hopefully it will now stay put and not venture off to beaches that are absolutely covered in Homo sapiens on memorial day weekend. However, the tide is now going to start coming in and we will see how late it stays until it gets too high a tide late in the day.

Hudsonian godwit still present, and a celebration

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

Hudsonian Godwit is still present at 4:15 p.m. With the tide now coming quite a ways in, it will loose a lot of the feeding areas in the next hour. Hopefully it will still be here tomorrow at low tide again...

This is a first County record, and it is Guy McCaskie's 500th bird in the county!!!! Yeah, Guy!

Clark's grebe at San Elijo Lagoon, and late rufous HB

Steve Perry
 

Hi all,

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56804359

Got photos of a Clark's grebe just west of Tern Point (overlook at end of La Carina). Also, while carefully checking all hummingbirds along La Orilla Trail for the elusive b-chinned (missed again) I had a getting late male rufous HB. I have another one still hanging out in my neighbors yard, so perhaps there are several stragglers this season.

Mountain lion attack

Not a rare bird sighting but thought the word should get out as some of us visit this location on a regular basis. There have been several reports in the last couple of days concerning this lion

Well, Camille and I came racing all the way back from Arizona, communicating with Paul and pulled into Robb Field about 6:30 to see Gary Nunn and Dan Cooper on the bird.  Dan walk from the water up to the bike path to make sure Camille and I got to see our lifer Hudsonian.  It is a big deal to me that Dan did this as I am having a hip replacement in August and he knew I could not get down to the rocks.  Dan, thank you so very much.  Anyhow, bird was still very happily feeding and hopefully sticks around for a few days.

Hudsonian Godwit

Many birders observed the Hudsonian Godwit in Ocean Beach on the main mudflat of the San Diego River.  These photos were taken about 2:20 p.m. from the south shore.

Thanks to John Bruin and Paul Lehman.

Great photos Ed!  And thanks also to out of towner Daniel Hite of Mesa AZ,  the original sighter, who is an outreach person at Audubon Arizona, and who filed the first eBird report with photos.    Paul L. and Barbara C. and John B did a great job of getting the word out and posting updates.  sue

Looking at going out tomorrow morning (05/28/19) when I get off work (sunrise) to try and relocate. Anyone have a good description or gps location for where the HUDSONIAN GODWIT has been seen forging?

Thank You,

Aren't there more Godwits closer to low tide than to high in that area?

I am leaving but just a little bit ago the godwit flew north and landed close to lifeguard tower 21. I though San Rafael  PL. looked like a close cross street. Several other birders are present.
