Larry,

 

The photo attached to Janis’s eBird list is of a Nashville Warbler, not a Virginia’s Warbler.

Solitary Sandpiper South Dairy Mart Pond

Aaron Gyllenhaal
 

Hi all,

I just got to the south pond on Dairy Mart Road where the Northern Waterthrush has been recently. When I walked up, I heard a Sandpiper call that I thought sounded like a Solitary. 30 seconds later it took off flying north, hopefully to the main pond on Dairy Mart Road. Birders already present (Sia McGown, Albert Linkowski) have pictures. Separated from Spotted by the loud, resonant call, darker back, and black horizontal stripes on the tail. No dice on the waterthrush yet, but I’ve been here for only a few minutes.

Tropical Kingbird at Fort Rosecrans, 9/13 PM

James Pawlicki <jmpawli10@...>
 

An apparent (non-calling, but long-billed) Tropical Kingbird was briefly observed perched on the utility wires just outside the eastern fenceline in the southeastern corner of Fort Rosecrans this evening around 5:30 pm. It quickly flew down out of sight into the sage-scrub, and was not observed again over the course of 45 minutes.

Yellow-green Vireo refound at same location today (Friday)

peterginsburg
 

Considering the difficulty of separating first year Y-g and Red-eyed Vireos this is slightly tentative but appears to be subject species. If chasing this bird I recommend birding starting from the fishing float and going east for 80 yards or so.  To see photos go to "explore hot spots"on eBird and then selecting Lake O'Neill to see Charles Jackson's report.

Tennessee Warbler, Batiquitos Lagoon, Chollas Point, Sept. 13, 2019

PG Nell
 

A Tennessee Warbler was seen by Patti Koger and me at approx. 9:00 am today, Sept. 13, in Tipu trees near the entrance to Chollas Point Trail during the Batiquitos Lagoon monthly bird survey. It was in a mixed flock with OCWA, WIWA & Bushtits. We were unable to re-find it as we left the area to go to next survey spot.

This short trail is located near the east end of Batiquitos Lagoon, at the intersection of Hummingbird Lane and Sanderling Ct., Carlsbad, 92011 33.096736,-117.273177

Northern Waterthrush at Dairy Mart Ponds

dan jehl
 

I birded the south pond at Dairy Mart Road in San Ysidro last night (09/11/2019) about 5:30 on my way home from work and heard the distinctive chewy chink call of a Northern Waterthrush coming from the cat tails at the south end of the pond. Nathan French followed up on my report this morning and both recorded and photographed a nice looking Northern Waterthrush just where I heard it yesterday. Thanks to Nathan for confirming what I heard. 

This is where a Northern Waterthrush spent a few months last year so there’s a chance that it will stay for a bit.

FW: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Continuing crossbills

Geoffrey L. Rogers
 

For those interested in the arcane details of US Forest Service road designations in the Laguna Mountains (others need not read this :-), I’ve corrected the duplication I implied between Escondido Ravine Road (Forest Route 15S09) and FR 15S10. They are not the same. The latter comprises the remains of old County Highway S1 and is called Wooded Hill Road (at least in part). An interactive map at https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/cleveland/maps-pubs/?cid=fseprd639835  has linkage to a smaller map that I used for this.

This morning near Agua Dulce Creek in the Laguna Mountains at least 2 calling Red Crossbills flew over me heading east as I stood at the junction of Forest Routes 15S09 and 15S10 (Cleveland National Forest-Descanso Ranger District Road designations). Curiously, the Forest Service Interactive Visitor Map calls both roads Escondido Ravine Road with just the FR 15S09 designation. Anyway, the lat-long of this junction is 32.868111, -116.440070  This is “the y-intersection” as there are several others nearby that could be construed as “y” shaped but I did pass the toilet paper on my way to this one. Heading back to my vehicle I ran into Manolo Turner, the finder of the crossbills, and he verified this.

 

I counted several species at very high numbers for me at this location. Obviously many young of the year still about--details to come in eBird.

American Redstart Fort Rosecrans

Aaron Gyllenhaal
 

Hi all,

I just found a female-type American Redstart at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. It is in a cluster of four trees located on the east side of the cemetery about 200-300 ft southwest of the Committal Shelter. Besides that it has been slow here, the Redstart was the first warbler I’ve seen in the last hour.

Agua Dulce Creek

I had at least 3 Red Crossbills this morning (9/11/19)  between 0900 and 0930 at the spot Lisa Ruby previously described in her post.  It's where the draped toilet paper was last moved (easily visible) and where the two large dead logs span the creek.  There is still some water in this area but I don't know how long it will last.  Within a 100 yards up trail from this spot I had two Cassin's Vireos (one singing); Warbling Vireo - 6; Wilson's Warbler - 8; and Black-throated Gray Warbler - 1.  And even further up trail I saw one Hal Benham in basic plumage.

Mexican Whip-poor-will, Hooded Warbler, and listserv etiquette

Justyn Stahl
 

1. The Mexican Whip-poor-will that has been reported a couple times in the last few days was a false alarm - the recordings were of a Common Poorwill.

2. The Hooded Warbler, a male first reported by Michelle Haglund on 22 August, and likely there undetected all summer, is in a small overgrown alley turned into a city easement known as Wing Street Canyon, accessed from the west end of Wing Street (32.746, -117.216), between the Midway District and Loma Portal. Michelle has found a number of good birds in this area over the years, but it hasn't been on many (any?) other birder's maps. Certainly a spot worth checking with some frequency, but please be respectful of parking and people's privacy when birding near backyards and houses. Further evidence that there is still plenty to be discovered in San Diego away from the usual circuit of hotspots most birders check. 

3. When posting to SanDiegoRegionBirding, please reference *where* you were in your posts and *who* you are. Multiple recent posts have contained no observer information, and a signature is required per the rules of the listserv. As for location, not everyone is an eBird user, and nearly 1,000 people are subscribed to this list, so the more descriptive your emails are, the better the community will be served.

Thanks,
Justyn Stahl

Re: Hooded no, Virginia’s yes!

Well, Paul Marvin and myself were there a lot earlier than Anthony, but about 6:55 this morning, the Hooded was calling non stop for about 10 to 15 minutes just barely past the raised man hole covers, but it was on the left side of the dirt road, just before the bamboo.  We had two brief glimpses just over the chain linked fence and just over the wooden fence on the inside, that T's up against the chain linked fence, but basically, it did not cooperate very well.
