Still present Tuesday morning.  First seen by Gary Nunn and John Sterling near the entrance to 530 Silvergate where it stayed more or less for some time.  It later flew across Pio Pico and stayed in the trees on its north side for awhile and then?

BVAS /GRANDE Pelagic trip Sunday June 11th.

David Povey <dpovey@...>
 

The next Buena Vista and Grande offshore adventure is Sunday June 11, 2017. Just two weeks away.

This is a 12 hour trip departing at 6 a.m. from Point Loma Sportfishing Landing in San Diego Bay. Cost $105.

We will search the Nine and 30 Mile Banks.

Some expected species are Pink-footed and Sooty Shearwaters, Black, Ashy and Leach's Storm-Petrels, Brown Booby,

and  Cassin's Auklets. Elegant, Common, and Least Terns.

Possible  species are Black-footed Albatross, N. Fulmar, Black-vented Shearwater, Red-billed Tropicbird,

Red and Red-necked Phalaropes, South Polar Skua,  Pomarine Jaeger, Scripps's Murrelet.

The last two years we have had early Craveri's Murrelets on this trip.  The recent May 21st. trip had the second

county record for Cook's Petrel ( the other record is from June 13, 1997) Could this be the "right" time of year for that species?

Last year's June trip also got good looks at a Red-billed Tropicbird. I've always liked the mid May to mid June time period

for South Polar Skua now missed for several years in a row. Who knows what might show?

See details and past trip reports at www.sandiegopelagics.com.

I hope you will join us. Call  619 223-1627 for your reservation.

Around 5:30 pm this afternoon (Sunday 5/28) there was a female Magnificent Frigatebird circling around at Buena Vista Lagoon just east of Coast Hwy in S Oceanside. This was viewing from the trails near the vistor center. The bird was last seen gaining height and drifiting due E towards interstate 5.

Birders,
  One of the AMGP found by Paul (I think) is in a small flock of shorebirds at the previously reported location of 13th St. In the saltworks pond.

Birders needed! San Dieguito Monthly Bird Count- Sunday, June 4th

Jayne Lesley
 

San Dieguito Monthly Bird Count - next Sunday, June 4th

This  is a reminder that the May 2017 San Dieguito Lagoon monthly bird count is next Sunday, May 7th.  We need volunteer birders to help with our ongoing survey of bird populations at the San Dieguito Lagoon restoration project.  Everyone is welcome!

We will meet at 7:30 AM at the south end of San Andres Dr. (Turn right/south off of Via de la Valle when heading east from Hwy 5.  San Andres dead ends at the lagoon).  We divide into groups to count 5 areas, and coordinate with park rangers to provide vests and access for restricted areas.  

We. gather to tally our results at noon at the Del Mar Public Works parking lot/picnic tables.  (Turn west off of Jimmy Durante Rd. just south of the Fairgrounds and bridge crossing the San Dieguito River.) Bring water and a snack or lunch.

Hope to see you next Sunday at the count!

Susan Smith
 

The White-eyed Vireo was seen again about an hour or two  after Ryan Andrews found it earlier today. It was hanging out and vocalizing  near the intersection of Pio Pico and Silvergate Ave, in elms in front of 3613 Pio Pico, and then moved a little to the south and east to trees along both sides of Silvergate at the north end and across the street from the historic Rosecroft estate at 530 Silvergate.

Basic-plumaged but no adult American Golden Plover this morning

Stan Walens
 

Got down to the end of 13th St around 9:30 to watch for the AGPL on the incoming tide.
High tide was supposed to be 10:45-11:15.
3 other birders were there and had been for hours.

The flock of birds was on the sandbar as described in previous posts.
Most of the plovers were sitting, huddled in a group.

I was able to find the basic-plumaged AGPL standing in a small group of black-bellieds, but the adult was nowhere to be found.
Around 10:45, the entire flock of birds suddenly took off and zoomed to the west somewhere.

Spent about an hour trying to relocate them, but to no avail. Water, water everywhere...

Maybe the flock will return on the falling tide.

Cook's Petrel

I absolutely did not see the Cooks Petrel on the 21st. I was just lazy about correcting my list. Lesson learned!

American Golden-plover

Charles Jackson
 

Continuing at same location late this afternoon (1700, 24 May 2017).

End of 13th Street in Imperial Beach. Park at lovely new Bayshore Bikeway facility at north terminus of 13th. The pond directly north of this parking is the pond, and the mudflat is over on northeast side.

You can get closer, as Paul pointed out, by hiking east down the bike path, over the first bridge. Problem is fence blocks view and nothing to step on to peer over. You can view through the fence of course, but this is climb resistant mesh.

If you keep hiking down toward the next bridge there is a section of fence you might be able to peer over, and morning light will be good. (In afternoon that spot would be looking into the sun.)

White-eyed Vireo photo from Sunday (5/21)

Alex Abela
 

Hi All,

As Paul mentioned in an earlier post, after the Grande returned to port on Sunday several us headed up to Rosecroft Ln in Point Loma to see the WHITE-EYED VIREO that Susan Smith had found earlier in the day.    I've uploaded a photo from the brief, but good looks we were treated to:
