Great Egret - injured 12.30.19

Cheryl Lish
 

A Great Egret just landed in the field behind my house, about 40 ft from me. As I looked up it was likely downing a lizard.
There’s something hanging from its throat but appears to be sticking out through the skin just under its bill. I couldn’t confirm the object as plant or animal. It was a few inches long, sort of orange and yellow.
The feathers in that area and lower down on the front of its neck are in poor condition. Many are missing.
The bird is flight capable and is still able to eat.
I had to encourage it to leave when it headed for my house, likely for more lizards.
There was a Great Egret next to my house a few days ago that flew when I stepped out the back door.
New yard bird.

Pismo Black Scoter

Brad Schram
 

An adult female BLACK SCOTER in a small flock of SURF SCOTERS just outside the surf zone off the Pismo Creek outfall this morning was a welcome surprise.  She actively preened with the loafing scoters before something spooked them, the whole flock flying past Pismo pier toward the Shell Beach cliffs.

Please, this is not a forum for politics, or non-San Luis Obispo related birding. This could quickly devolve into ugliness.

White-faced Ibis, Pacific Wren

Brad Schram
 

Birding Pismo Creek mouth this morning, in hopes of something new blown in during the storm, proved disappointing because nothing seems to have changed since last week.

Following the creek mouth prowl I was pleasantly surprised to find a PACIFIC WREN in a willow and  German Ivy tangle along Pismo Creek behind the Pismo water treatment facility.  Many tries along AG Creek, and at the same location last winter, didn't produce one, and I was resigned to missing it on my 2019 5 Mile Radius list.

Moving on to the Pismo State Beach Golf Course at the end of Grand Ave I found the wintering juv. GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE & CACKLING GOOSE to be still working the grass in loose association with the CANADA GOOSE flock.  Young birders Liam and Kilian Hampl happened by, telling me that they'd found a WHITE-FACED IBIS on the course earlier this morning!  I was delighted to hear this, another bird missing from the 5MR thus far this year.  This bird proved a little difficult, feeding in the tules in a course pond, but finally revealed itself.

A surprising morning, two new birds for the 5MR this late in the year.
