Lake Cuyamaca - Red-throated Pipit, Sep 14, 2018

Gary Nunn
 

Richard Griebe and Terry Hurst reported an early calendar date returning American Pipit today Sep 14, 2018 from Lake Cuyamaca but looking at the photos in the eBird checklist I think this appears to be a RED-THROATED PIPIT.  The bird has strong blackish lore stripe, strongly marked face and black malar triangle, streaked crown, bright wing covert bars, shorter tail, and pink legs.


Just getting the word out in case any early risers want to go check it out!

Hi all,

For any who would like to check out this Pipit it was found on the west side of the lake about midway from the south end of the Lake Cuyamaca parking lot to the start of the reeds further south. Park at the Lake parking lot and you will be at the correct side of the lake. For those who have not been to the lake before it does cost ten dollars to park there for the day and on weekends they do check. You pay at the tackle shop.

Gues my first thought about this bird might be correct after all. I thought it looked a little odd for a American Pipit. Guess we shall see.

FRNC - Virginia’s Warbler, Sep 15, 2018

There is a VIRGINIA’S WARBLER at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in the southeast section, just saw it in two large pine trees together by east fence-line where concrete culvert makes small angle. Small red irrigation flag by pine tree it was in.

First found by Rich Norgaard much earlier in the morning but had vanished then.

I saw the bright-red Summer Tanager this (Sunday) morning about 10 o'clock and got a decent photo of it before it flew into the adjacent school yard. There it seemed to take delight in chasing black phoebes off their perches in the eucalyptus trees. I stuck around for a few more minutes, but it didn't return to the park before I left.

I went looking for the Northern Waterthrush this morning (Sept. 15) at Kumeyaay Lake. I did not see it or the one-footed Virginia Rail. I walked around the lake and returned to the site where it had been seen. Four other birders had arrived. They had not seen either of the two birds.

I did see two Soras and a number of Common Yellowthroats.

Pectoral Sandpiper : Carlsbad, Calavera Lake 15 SEP2018

Tito Gonzalez
 

I observed a PECTORAL SANDPIPER this morning, 15 SEP18, at Calavera Lake in Carlsbad. It was foraging with a variety of shorebirds in the NorthEast shore of the lake. This is a new ebird location for this species. Based on crisp, bright plumage it appears to be a juvenile. It was still there when I left. Photos are in following ebird report.

Pectoral Sandpiper still present at Lake Calevara

Terence Brashear
 

I was at the lake at 2:45pm 9/15/2018 and the Pectoral Sandpiper was still present at the NE end of the lake.  It was still present when I left at 3:15.  Distant pictures taken.

Addendum: The closest access point to specific location is from Sky Haven Road which is north of the lake.  If you put in 3759 Sky Haven Ln Oceanside, CA 92056 into google maps, it will take you to trail head. The lake spot is less than 75 yards from this point. Despite this omission, it looks like people were able to see the bird Saturday afternoon. Hopefully, it stays around for little bit.

Thank for posting (although I saw this addendum to late to spare me the walk from the dam -- I needed the exercise anyway).

A group of us got good looks at it this (Sunday) morning.

Thanks for posting and refinding the bird before you left.

I was among that second wave of birders that showed up late morning. We got decent looks at the bird, but no photos (that I'm aware of) as good as yours. Thanks for posting on eBird.

The REVI was not seen this morning between 6:30 AM and 8:00 AM by me or John Bruin. The Pectoral Sandpiper is still at Lake Calavera this morning in the same location previously reported by many.

SDFO Meeting Tuesday Sept 18

Nancy Christensen
 

SDFO Event – September 18, 2018 at 6:00 pm is the next meeting of San Diego Field Ornithologists.

 

Tuesday, September 18, at 6:00 p.m., in the Hoffman Room of the San Diego Foundation Building, 2508 Historic Decatur Rd. Going south on Rosecrans St. in the Midway area of town, turn left on Roosevelt Rd. into Liberty Station and proceed a couple of blocks to Decatur. Parking is available on the street or in the adjacent parking lots.

 

Program: John Bruin will discuss “Birding in Indonesia: From Borneo to Papua.”

 

From mid-May to mid- June, John spent 5 weeks birding in Indonesia. He visited the islands of Java, Bali, Borneo and West Papua. In addition, he spent a couple of days in Singapore. Indonesia is home to more endemic species than any other country in the world. Birding in Indonesia can be challenging, due to the rustic and remote nature of roads and facilities. Many locations are rarely visited by other birders. John was fortunate to see some unique species, including Vogelkop Bower bird, Black- thighed Falconet, Javan Plover, Magnificent Bird of Paradise and many others. He will be presenting slides on some of the highlights of this trip.

Solitary Sandpiper, jaegers, Imperial Beach, Mon 17 Sep

Paul Chad
 

A Solitary Sandpiper was in the flats area off bike path, opposite side of the Bay, west of the new apt or condo complex west of 7th St. A couple of immature jaegers went by close to shore at the end of Seacoast Dr. Based on build, I'd say both were most likely Parasitic, but not sure what species. Both sightings around 1:00 PM.
