Broad-winged Hawk in Tecolote Canyon yesterday

rsbreisch
 

A Broad-winged Hawk was seen & photographed in Tecolote Canyon at 8:30 AM on Tuesday Sept 28, 2021.  At the time, I thought it was a Red-shouldered Hawk, but Justyn Stahl, Susan Smith, & others pointed out my error.  The Broad-winged Hawk was seen from the trail and was midway between Balboa Avenue & Mt. Acadia Blvd. 

See: eBird Checklist - 28 Sep 2021 - Tecolote Canyon Natural Park--Balboa Ave. to Mt Acadia Blvd. - 3 species

Tropical K, Olive-sided F, TRV, 28 Sep 2021

Paul Chad
 
Edited

Late AM today in the Tijuana River Valley, there was a Tropical Kingbird at the 'dip' on Saturn Rd just north of Sunset Rd, and an Olive-sided Flycatcher at the Bird-and-Butterfly Garden (off Hollister).

ID notes-  There were Cassin's Kingbirds at Saturn, and a Western Wood-Pewee or two at the B&B Gardens...  Comparing the Tropical and Olive-sided to them-  Big differences- none.  Small differences- Tropical seemed (barely) bigger, tail-fork fairly distinctive, the upper-breast color more faint, dull greenish (not grayish) between white chin and yellow belly, and (especially at close range) bill larger, longer with distinctive hooked tip.  Olive-sided seems slightly bigger-headed/billed, shorter-tailed, 'vest' was quite distinct, dark part slightly streaked (not 'solid' dull/dark grayish), pale part clearly extended up into chin/throat.  Sometimes-visible flank white patches (for O-S) not visible on this bird.

Good Birding,

Paul Chad

(Edit) Oh, meant to mention- a behavioral clue for Olive-S- was consistently at tip of bare branches at tall tree-tops. Not unheard-of for Pewee, but much more typical for Olive-s.

Tufted Puffin, Broad-winged Hawk, Clay-coloreds, lingering Black-chinneds

lehman.paul@verizon.net
 

Today, 28 Sep, Jane Mygatt and Pete Ginsburg et al. took the "Privateer" whale watch boat out of Mission Bay, and only 2-3 miles off Ocean Beach Jane photo'd a TUFTED PUFFIN flying by. There are only about five or so county records of this species, and this is the second in fall. Also today, Richard Breish photo'd a hawk at Tecolote Canyon in the early AM, and analysis of the eBird list has shown that appears to be a young Broad-winged Hawk. No sign of it this afternoon. But be aware that we are now in peak fall Broad-winged season and that a number of Broad-wingeds were seen today just to our north over Santa Barbara....so perhaps Thursday during our forecast light NE Santa Ana event would be a good day to look at places like Mount Soledad or Point Loma. Single Clay-colored Sparrows were seen today at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery and Fiesta Island, and yesterday bordering Montgomery Field.

For the second year in a row a small but not insignificant number of Black-chinned Hummingbirds are lingering in the county, between Pine Valley and the coast. Mostly at feeders. Last year a few made it as late as early October, when formerly very rare.

Re: FRNC, Point Loma -- Least Flycatcher, Magnolia Warbler, other birds, 27 Sep 2021

Joseph Alsadi
 

The Magnolia Warbler discovered by Jim Pawlicki yesterday was still present today just east of “the wall” along the chain link fence here (32.6872190, -117.2434699). After watching it glean spiders off the fence it flew into the dense eucalyptus/scrub area to the northwest. 

I’m posting late due to the restricted birding hours at FRNC; no birding 8-5pm.

An early AM circuit this morning around Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Point Loma turned up a small trove of nice birds, particularly in the Empidonax department.

Best find was a LEAST FLYCATCHER near the Plumbago capensis "hedge" along Catalina Highway, down in the dip in the highway, easily located at that time by rapid-fire "whitting" calls.  It flew off, whitting as it went, and I finally caught up with it over by "The Wall'', on the east side of the cemetery, feeding from grave marker tops in-an-out of the scrub behind the wall.  It was not relocated soon after by Jim Pawlicki who came to take a look for it.  In addition one GRAY FLYCATCHER, two HAMMOND'S FLYCATCHER, an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, a MAGNOLIA WARBLER, found by Jim Pawlicki, last seen in the eucalyptus trees behind "The Wall", also a PLUMBEOUS VIREO, and a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.

Many birds were moving about in the inclement weather conditions although it did seem to remain dry at the cemetery while I was there.

Black-throated Blue Warbler Oceanside

Tom Harrison
 

Thanks to a sharp-eyed birder named Kevin, we saw the stunning male Black-throated Blue Warbler at 2:15 today in the area reported previously, at the intersection of the paved path and Mesa Road, just south of the entrance to Buddy Todd Park in Oceanside.

There was also a female Western Tanager, a Townsend’s Warbler, some Bushtits and a Nuttall’s Woodpecker.

Good birding,

Update on black-throated Blue Warbler at Buddy Todd

Lisa Ruby
 

I saw the Black-throated Blue Warbler at Buddy Todd Park around 11:34 a.m. and again around 12:05 p.m. Same location as coordinates provided yesterday. Both times it was very active and then disappeared within a few minutes. It moved between the ficus and what I assume were the previously mentioned carob trees.

As of 10:10, the Northern Parula is still in the tipus at the Latter-day Saints Center (now a hotspot on eBird). No sign of the Blackburnian when I was there, but could still be around.

B-and-W Warbler, La Jolla, 27 Sep 2021

Paul Chad
 

A (female-type) Black-and-White Warbler was in the Muirlands /La Jolla today, about the mid-point of La Jolla Rancho Rd.

The bird was about 40 yards away from where the (same?) bird was seen about this time last year.

Good Birding,
