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

Lazuli Bunting in Point Loma

Sara Baase Mayers
 

A female Lazuli Bunting was in our yard on Point Loma around 2PM (June 1).  From the SD Bird Atlas, it sounds like a "straggler," and I see none reported on eBird in Point Loma since May 16.  (Description: bunting size and bill, warm tan color with peachy breast, pale belly, and pale wing bars.)

minor miscellanea

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

On June 1st, shorebirds at the saltworks off the end of 13th Street in Imperial Beach included 17 Western Sandpipers (3 in full alternate), 16 Red Knots (almost all basic), and 2 Ruddy Turnstones (basic), almost all of which will certainly end up over-summering locally. The only migrant passerine I had in the TRV was a single Western Wood-Pewee. On 31 May, a visit to Jacumba was disappointing for late migrants, with just a single Western Wood-Pewee and Western Tanager, plus 4 continuing, late-lingering Cedar Waxwings, a late/summering Green Heron, 3+ continuing White-winged Doves which will probably try nesting there, a continuing pair of locally rare Cassin's Kingbirds, still plenty of Lawrence's Goldfinches, and just a single remaining Tricolored Blackbird.

Mississippi Kite, Dairy Mart Ponds, June 1

Stan Walens
 

I went to the Dairy Mart Ponds for 2-1/2 hours this afternoon with some other birders, to look for the Indigo Bunting that Sia McGown photographed there yesterday. No luck. [Tom Benson was leaving just as I arrived and he had not seen or heard it either.]
We knew only that Sia had reported it from somewhere around the south pond, but there’s a lot of territory that falls under that label and a lot of perfectly good habitat nearby.

However, as we walked along the southwest side of the main pond at about 2:40, we flushed an adult Mississippi Kite from the same tree that one, an immature, used 4 years ago.
The bird quickly headed up into the air, caught a thermal and rose to spectacular heights before flying right across the disc of the sun, at which point, blinded, we lost it. I’m still seeing afterimages.

No idea whether it was migrating or will hang around, so if you go to Dairy Mart, keep an eye out for it.

My August Pelagic ticket is sold

Mark Stratton
 

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I no longer have my pelagic ticket.  I want to thank everyone that contacted me and I tried answering everyone personally but the response was overwhelming and I wasn't able to answer them all.  I'm sorry I am going to miss this trip and hope you all have fun.  I may see you all off in the morning as I will have friends from Florida on that trip.
