Not sure if the darker-crowned bird was in a tree or another part of the lawn. It eventually flew near to the first bird. Both foraged in dandelions. Also in patch: juncos, Lesser Goldfinch, bluebirds, Yellow-rumped Warblers. Been able to get within about five yards of both birds the past few days. One behavior I noticed with them early on is how they will sometimes let people get closer to them than goldfinches or juncos. Other times both birds flew to opposite side of field if any people (or dogs were in the vicinity). Still, if you get too close, the birds are wary, and will follow any other birds that move on. Today, both followed goldfinches further along the dandelion patch before flying toward the community garden."

Emperor Goose not seen today....in SLO County

David Lawrence
 

Greetings,

Perhaps pertinent to Jeff Miller’s very recent post to this list about an adult EMGO seen today in Bodega Bay, Sonoma County, Brad Schram and I attempted to revisit the bird/s this morning (Wed., 3/18), at the Piedras Blancas site, without success. No goose was seen on its preferred off-shore rock at 8:20 AM or again at 10:50 AM. Other birders were seen at both times and had not seen any goose today as well.

Of course, we may simply have missed the bird. But, if it/they have decided this was the time to head back to the Aleutians, I’m sure all us local birders thank them for their stay and wish them a safe trip. And, hope on hope, perhaps they had such a fine winter with us that next year they’ll give our stunning North SLO County Coast another gander.

Dave Lawrence

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S65926071
- Comments: "I initially spotted the wintering plover standing along out in the middle of the grassland to the south of the trail out to the beach. Unfortunately, despite our best effort to work our way around this bird for good light and to approach it carefully, this bird never let us approach within 150 meters, so our views were less than ideal and obtained essentially through my scope. We heard this bird call several times, mostly if not entirely when it was in flight. The call given was a clear “chuwee” that was reminiscent of the calls of a Semipalmated Plover and not as sharp as the more double-noted, “chu-weet” that I associate with American Golden-Plover.
This was a medium-sized plover that nevertheless appeared a bit larger and maybe slightly plumper than a Killdeer, though admittedly it was difficult to determine its relative size and structure given that we never saw it in direct comparison with another bird. My impression was nevertheless that this bird had long legs and a relatively large bill that was short, yet stout throughout its length before ending in a blunt tip. Typical of a plover, this bird had a steep forehead and a gently rounded crown, yet with more strongly rounded junctions with the crown and both the forehead and nape. The head also seemed larger than that of a sandpiper, the neck was shorter, and the body was plump, full-chested, and seemingly with a posture that was midway between horizontal and diagonal. I was unable to determine the primary projection, the number of primaries visible beyond the longest secondary, and even the extension of the wingtips beyond the tip of the tail, yet I I did not think this bird appeared to have the excessively long wings or horizontal posture that I associate with American Golden-Plover.
Given our distance from this bird, it was difficult to discern much detail of its plumage patterns or even its coloration given that the bird was somewhat backlit when I studied it most carefully. I was nevertheless able to note that it had a relatively bold supercilium that appeared to have a yellowish or buff cast, and which contrasted with both a dark cap and at least some dark coloration on the sides of the face; however, there was enough pale coloration on the face to make the dark eye stand out conspicuously. I was able to see that the upperparts and at lest most of the closed wings had both a mottled pattern and a somewhat golden or buffy appearance, but I was unable to discern the fine details of the pattern on the back, scapulars, wing coverts, and even the tertials. Moreover, even though I could see that the underparts were somewhat paler than the upperparts, and that they had an uneven or possibly a mottled appearance, I was again unable to make out the details of the pattern. I was nevertheless confident that this bird was not extensively black or white below. I thought the bill, eyes, and legs were all quite dark.
My views of this bird in flight revealed a few additional details, most notably that it appeared smaller and noticeably slimmer than a Black-bellied Plover, and that the wings were narrow and tapering to conspicuously pointed tips. I further thought the body was moderately plump for a shorebird, that the bill was short, and that the head and neck did not extend far in front of the wings, yet the tail extended some distance behind. When seen in flight, the upperparts and uppersides of the wings appeared to be rather plain, with little more than a weak, pale band through the outer part of the wing that I suspect extended across the primaries and maybe into the secondaries. I did not see an obvious contrast between the back, rump, and tail. My views of the undersides of the spread wings were not as good as those of the uppersides, but I was able to note with confidence the lack of both black axillaries and white underwings, and with somewhat less confidence that the underwings were plain and light gray in color."

Emperor goose in Sonoma County

Jeff Miller
 

An adult Emperor Goose is being seen today at Bodega Head in Sonoma County. The SLO Emperor geese were last seen as a pair the morning of March 15, and only a single goose has been seen since then. Coincidence or migration?

Emperor Goose and Long-tailed Duck

David L. Keeling
 

Good morning all,

Yesterday I decided to try my luck and drove up the coast to the motel past the elephant seal viewing and located one continuing EMPEROR GOOSE.   I had it all to myself for a half hour or so and then was joined by a group of three from Atascadero (who need to contact me) and we all were practically glowing with happiness.   If you haven't tired of looking at Emperor photos, take a look at my FLICKR site for three more that I thought came out quite well.

I also posted two pictures of a LONG-TAILED DUCK which has been in Morro Bay.   The first was taken on Jan 23, just after the Winter Bird Festival.   The second, on March 12, when I hadn't seen or heard about it for weeks.   Anyway, his plumage had changed noticeably, with the entire body darkening, and with the patches on the neck doing so dramatically.   The two images chosen show almost the same pose, nice for comparing.   I hoped he was growing a longer tail too, but he kept it low and the evidence is not convincing.

Enjoy!   Stay well!

Baywood Park birding

Steve Schubert
 

Hello all,
I went on a neighborhood walk this morning in the brisk chilly air following the recent rainstorms, at the north ends of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th streets in Baywood Park and overlooking the bay. At the Audubon Overlook there were 34 SNOWY EGRETS loafing and preening in the narrow strip of pickleweed marsh at high tide. On 3rd St. the resident NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD was singing furiously and mimicking several excellent renditions that I could identify as California scrub-jay, Black phoebe, Oak titmouse, and American kestrel. Several PINE SISKINS have been singing the past couple weeks in the cypress trees along 3rd St.  Two BAND-TAILED PIGEONS were perched on a power line on 2nd St.

Viewed the Emperor Goose from the old Piedras Blancas motel and from the beach below the motel. Saw only one goose.

Stopped by San Simeon Pier on my way back and saw several Surf Scoters, Western & Clark's Grebes, and one Pigeon Guillemot.

Cedar waxwings Morro Bay

There is a flock of about 60-80 cedar waxwings moving uphill through the neighborhood on Blackhill from just above Quintans to maybe as high as Ridgeway and west of King's. 200pm

Phalaropes

Lunch...

Since last post 14 more phalaropes have flown north to south, along the shore. I believe these all to be Red. Perhaps this rain and west Wind is pushing them ashore.

Red Phalarope(s)

Bob Chapman
 

Coffee break,

Had a winter plumage Phalarope foraging in South Oso Flaco; medium gray with strong white wing stripe in flight, bill stout and yellow at base. Went to digiscope the bird and it quickly departed to the South. After taking flight 3 more phalaropes followed. Since those 4 birds I have seen 3 others and was able to photograph one, a Red Phalarope showing a calico red underside.

Re: Request: scope

Rick Derevan
 

From the motel lot, a scope is a good idea. If you drive a little further up the coast, then park on the highway 1 shoulder and walk to the bluff's edge, then a scope is not necessary, but it's possible the geese will be below the top of the rock, in which case, they are not visible from there. So I would take a scope, check them out from the motel lot, then if they're on the top, drive up a little further and walk. My photos here, from the further north location to give you an idea:

If referring to Geese, they were maybe only 40 yards away.

Emperor Geese, Point Piedras Blancas, 3/15

Tom Edell
 

The two Emperor Geese continued on the rock visible to the north of the closed Piedras Blancas Motel this stormy Sunday morning.

 

For eBird purposes, the existing motel hotspot has been renamed to “Piedras Blancas Motel--Emperor Goose hotspot" . Unless seen at a different location, please use this hotspot for eBird reports.
