Godwit locations

Geoffrey L. Rogers
 

I have posted maps of the two general locations the bird has been seen at to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/geoffrey.rogers.9822  The second map shows driving route between them.

 

The two locations are approximately 1.5 miles apart.

Re: Godwit locations

Thanks Geoff.

Further, we request eBird users use one of the eBird hotspots for tracking this bird:
1) "San Diego River--tidal mudflats" for the spot in Ocean Beach near Robb Field
2) "stakeout Hudsonian Godwit, Mission Beach (2019)" for the spot in Mission Beach

If you've created one of various address based checklists (e.g., " 3715 Ocean Front Walk, San Diego, California, US (32.783, -117.254)") or some variation on one of the above locations, please consider merging it with the appropriate hotspots.

In the description of the bird you can, and should, add details as to where you saw the bird (between which lifeguard towers, near which bridge, etc.)

Please:

1) Read about the importance of hotspots:

https://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/1006824-what-is-an-ebird-hotspot-


2) Merge your personal location with the hotspot by doing the following:

https://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/1010517-how-do-i-merge-a-personal-location-with-a-hotspot-


3) In the future, when using the eBird app, after selecting Start New Checklist, please select *Choose a Nearby Hotspot* if you're birding at a place that people frequent (typically the case if you are following directions to a recent rare bird).


4) Finally, if you haven't already, please consider taking the free eBird Essentials course:

Thanks,
Justyn Stahl

miscellanea, and Jacumba

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

Some miscellanea from the past few days:

There's been a singing Western Tanager in the same grove of trees along Monument Road in the Tijuana River Valley now for at least 10 days (still present 29 May), acting as if it is on territory; but of course this species nests nowhere near the TRV!

Continuing Reddish Egret at various sites on south San Diego Bay is the only individual in town I've seen the past 6+ weeks. Still 3 active Yellow-cr. Night-Heron nests (plus 2 Black-cr. nests) next to the bathrooms in the I.B. Sports Park.

Late Spotted Sandpiper along Tijuana River in TRV on 27 May.

Lingering, non-breeding-type waterfowl this year seem to be in exceedingly short supply compared to the usual in late May. The only candidate I've seen the past couple weeks is a single continuing Red-breasted Merganser on south SD Bay. About 15 Eared Grebes continue at the saltworks.

Singing, territorial Swainson's Thrushes at the southern limit of the breeding range are near the Bird & Butterfly Garden in the TRV and at the refuge riparian re-veg site at the west end of Main Street in Chula Vista.

On 28 May, Barbara Carlson and I made a morning visit to Jacumba. Still good numbers of Lawrence's Goldfinches all about town, and we had an active N. Flicker nest and 2 pairs of Cassin's Kingbirds--both species at or just beyond their normal breeding range. The selection of late-May migrants included:

Western Wood-Pewee: 4

Pacific-slope Flycatcher: 1

Swainson's Thrush: 6

Cedar Waxwing: 8

Yellow Warbler: 2

Wilson's Warbler: 1

Western Tanager: 12

Black-headed Grosbeak: 6

HUGO still at Mission Beach

Have been watching HUGO between lifeguard towers 19 and 20 for the past hour. Bird is flying solo for lunch today and doesn’t seem bothered by passerby. Currently at the west end (ocean side) of Portsmouth Court. 

Good birding, 

Lindsay Willrick

HUGO left Mission Beach around a half hour ago. Thought I had posted here, but I didn't. It could have gone to Robb Field judging by direction it went.

Update: the pair has built a nest in the original eucalyptus tree (near eBird point). We'll see how they fare once the fair opens...

I need to sell my August Pelagic ticket due to surgery

Mark Stratton
 

Hi everyone,

I am having a Hip replacement surgery on 8/6/19 so I can not longer go on this trip.  I'm hoping someone can help me out here.  This is a $135 trip and since I will be out of work, I hope to get $100 for this ticket.  We can go down to the landing together to take care of this or I can do it myself, whichever you prefer.

Thank you,
Mark Stratton
