Hello all,

Sorry for the late post - we were surprised yesterday late in the 
afternoon finding an adult Glaucous-winged Gull at Kutras Lake on the 
end of the little island down by the RV park.  Ring-billed Gulls are 
still in good numbers, and there were several Cal Gulls out in the lake.

Also a few late Canbacks and Common Goldeneyes, Ruddy Ducks, Ring-necked 
Ducks and several Horned Grebes were also present.

Hi,

 

An Osprey was on the soccer field nest yesterday, Feb 28th, In Anderson
River Park. A 2nd was perched nearby by the boat ramp area. 

 

I got to hear another Brown Creeper sing its breeding song. 

 

 

Ruby-crowned kinglets were singing wherever we walked. 

 

A pair of male flickers was interacting. They were on an oak trunk near one
another. They would act like they were going to probe one another with their
bills. Then they would bob and one would throw its head back and point its
bill straight up. There went on repeatedly for at least 5 minutes before
they both few off. 

I posted a photo when they had their bills close to one another.  This is in
an album, Pecks Photos. Here's a link.

Subject: Jelly's Ferry to Millville Plains Hawk Count - Feb. 26, 2015 - yesterday. Highlight was a Ferruginous Hawk dark phase!

Hello all,

Below are the totals from our Jelly's Ferry to Millville Plains Hawk 
Count on Feb. 26, 2015 - yesterday.

Most exciting was a rare dark phase Ferruginous Hawk with a darkish 
upper tail and light undertail just before (South of) the Spring Branch 
Sacramento Bend access area.  Very pretty bird.  We thought all the 
wintering hawks had split but migrants still trickle though.

The Loggerhead Shrike put in an appearance again at the Spring Branch 
Sacramento Bend access area after being missed the last 2 counts.

Our 1st attendance at nest platforms or boxes was an Osprey on a nest 
and 2 Tree Swallows at a roadside nest box.  A flock of 20 Band-tailed 
Pigeons was at the I-5 and Jelly's Ferry Road beginning.  That's way 
away from their routine foothills and mountain areas.

Two late Snow Geese were with a bunch of White-fronts on the distant 
ranch pond on the right prior to the rickety one lane bridge over the 
Sacramento River.

A few areas of what we think are Goldfields but the wildflower show 
really hasn't happened yet.  Redbuds are starting to look good.

This morning Darliss and I continued our still unchanged early migrant quest 
along the Sacramento River.  Although Yellow-rumped were the only 
warblers we could locate and our bird list totaled only 47 species, it was a 
beautiful morning to be out along the river.  Highlights from this morning 
include; 2 very close California Thrashers, numerous displaying Ruby-crowned 
Kinglets one with a very orange colored crown, 40+ Band-tailed Pigeons and both 
of the Bald Eagles at the nest sight, one on it the other perched just 
alongside.  Luck!F&DRedding, CA .

 Darliss and I had a great morning and early afternoon birding the Mouth of 
Cottonwood Creek property where we observed and identified 62 species.  
Although we didn't find any early migrating warblers we had hoped for we 
did get some good birds, including the first Shasta County White-tailed Kite 
we have seen in a long time, six California Thrashers one just across the road 
from the parking area, many Wilson's Snipe at the confluence of the Sacramento 
River and Cottonwood Creek, well over 100 American Pipits, 2 adult and 2 
juvenile Baled Eagles including one on the nest.  The Cottonwood Creek bed 
sustained significant changes from the early winter floods washing out most of 
the bankside willows where the Blue Grosbeak and Lazuli Buntings were hanging 
out last summer.  It seems the southern Shasta County Baled Eagles are doing 
well so far this nesting season e.g. one north of Shasta College, HWY 44 
bridge, one on the BLM property across from the waste water treatment plant, 2 
in the ARP area and the one we confirmed this morning.  Luck!F&DRedding,

Hello all,

Larry's bird looks like it is probably a Cooper's Hawk.  Can't tell for 
sure in the picture if the crown color is separated from the nape color 
(Cooper's).

Our key points for S-s & Cooper's are:

Amount of white at tip of tail - Cooper's much (like 1/2 inch), Sharpy a 
little (like a 1/4 inch)
Very skinny (S-s) versus heavy legs
Isolated Blue gray cap for Cooper's adult
Rounded side head profile from bill tip to nape=Cooper's - Sharpy has 
notch at bill joint with head
Square tail (S-s) versus Rounded Tail
Very long tail (Coop) versus normal length
Eye placement in head (tough to get)

Unfortunately some ID marks can overlap on large female Sharpy versus 
small male Coopers.

Oops!  That location should be 2.2 miles on Dersch Road East of

Hi all,
Yesterday, I saw an adult Bald Eagle on a new nest at the very end of the 
island in Anderson River Park. This is a different nest than the one across the 
river from the gravel bar where Frank and Darliss saw an adult next to the nest 
on Friday. I've recently seen a pair by that nest too. 

This third nest is on the backside of the island just across the watercourse (a 
nice spot for Wood Ducks). 

Wouldn't it be something if we actually have 2 nesting pairs?

Hello All,
 

 I had reserved the photo blind at Delevan NWR this weekend and got some nice 
photos and video of several waterfowl. Afterword, I stopped by Sacramento NWR 
hoping to spot the leucistic Bald Eagle. No luck there. Apparently no one had 
seen it for a few days. I did however get my first decent shots of what I am 
pretty sure is a Cooper's Hawk. I added two of the photos to my album and would 
like to get some ID confirmation.

Hello all,

Carol (the incredibly sharp eyed one) spotted the Roadrunner after 
several minutes looking straight up the hill by the isolated large brush 
area above a tiny canyon where we have often seen it.  The wind was so 
strong it knocked our scope over!

The locale is the tiny paved spot (by an abandoned car today) 1.2 miles 
East of the intersection with Parkville Road on Dersch Road. This is 
also 2.2 miles past Parkville Road on Dersch Road.  Traffic goes very 
fast there so take care.

There was 1 last Ferruginous Hawk on Millville Plains Road on the left 
heading up the hill before Bascom Road.

 Darliss and I spent the morning wondering the trails at ARP where we observed 
and identified 61 species with only a few surprises; 2 Varied Thrush on "The 
Island" (only the second time we have seen them in the park), a Green Heron 
(the first we have seen at ARP in a long time), 10 Band-tailed Pigeons, and 
a Sharp-shinned Hawk.  With the exception of Spotted Sandpipers and 
Killdeers we could find No shorebirds and the duck numbers have dropped 
considerably. The Bald Eagles across the river from the downstream end of "The 
Island" appeared to be nesting, although we were unable to see a bird on the 
nest one was parched very near by.  Even with the windy conditions we saw 
lots of butterflies.Luck!F&DRedding, CA

Hello all,

If anyone has any identification information or photos of the possible 
Trumpeter Swan that was at Ross Pond in Redding I would appreciated 
receiving it.

So far, the bird's species is in question.

After reading Bob & Carol's posting from Saturday Darliss and I decided to 
check it out.  Although we didn't see quite as many species (see list 
below yesterday we had a Great day.  As reported the Fall River Valley is 
alive with geese, swans, ducks and birds of prey.  Throughout the valley most 
of the fields held high numbers of Greater White-fronted and Snows. For the 
most part the Canada's appeared to be  paired-up. At Spring Creek bridge we 
located a group of approx. 60 Cackling Geese few ducks and significant wind 
damage in the area.  We found our best ducks in the flooded fields southwest 
of the parking area at Rat Farm. We stopped at Baum Lake on the trip home and 
added a single American White Pelican, a very close view of a pair of Barrow's 
Goldeneye and 4 Great Blue Heron nesting in the top of a large Ponderosa Pine 
across the lake.Luck!F&DRedding, CA

Hello all,

Yesterday there were 10 Tundra Swans out in the middle of Ross pond barely 
seeable from the end of Paso Robles Road or Portero Road. No Trumpeter seemed 
to be with them and the previous bird there that some thought was a Trumpeter 
was not with the swans as they all had yellow facial spots or whitish areas on 
the immatures and none had a pink gape/bill area like Trumpeters have. Bummer! 


Below is the GBBC data for our counts at Kutras Lake, Aqua Golf, Posse Grounds, 
and Redding Cemetery. 


Nothing much unusual in the sightings below except for the Black Merlin

Hi All,
 

 This morning at 9am at the Nord Cana site, a single Burrowing Owl was seen at 
the entrance to the burrow on the West side of the mound, closest to the road. 
I went on to check Durham-Penz Road site but didn't spot anything there. From 
there I went on to check the site on Cottonwood Road. There was fresh whitewash 
on several rocks but I saw no owls. 

 

 Good Birding,

Carol and I went to the Sacto Refuge yesterday for a GBBC.  It seemed 
like all the geese and swans are in Fall River valley and not at the

totaled 54 species (see list below) with no great surprises, however we were 
fortunate to have a Peregrine fly close overhead and to see a nesting Bald 
Eagle.  This morning is the first time we have seen the eagle's nest, however 
we often see eagles in the area.  Additionally we observed Red Shouldered

Hello all,

We did a GBBC in the Fall River Valley today and the highlight was 
50,000++ White-fronted Geese, 15,000++ Snow Geese, 500++ Tundra Swans, 
and a dark phase Ferruginous Hawk on Rat Farm Road.  We had 76 species 
with very few LBJs (little brown jobs/sparrows).  A Loggerhead Shrike, 
41 Red-tailed Hawks, 15 Rough-legged Hawks and 3 Great-tailed Grackles 
were also good finds.

The White-fronts were absolutely everywhere, the swans were scattered 
here and there, and the Snow Geese were with only a few close but clouds 
and clouds of them with White-fronts in the distance from the end of 
Horr Road looking back towards McArthur. There were also many birds 
along the west side of the valley. These numbers were far more like 
Sacramento Refuge than Fall River!

Full list will be forthcoming.

WOW!

I just posted to Shasta Birders 3 pictures of a Black or Pacific Merlin

It was standing on the rocks in the middle of the river!!

 This morning before Darliss and I arrived at the Llano Seco unit we birded 
the fields south of HWY 32 and west of HWY 45 where we saw large numbers of 
mixed flocks of ducks, geese, swans and Sandhill Cranes.  With all of the 
flooded fields available bird numbers were lower than we had hoped at Llano 
Seco, however with the exception of Blue-winged or Common Teal all of the 
anticipated species were present.  A very approachable Loggerhead Shrike was 
hanging out at the first viewing platform.  When first arrived an 
adult Golden Eagle was perched just down the trail to the second platform.  
Killdeer and Wilson's Snipe were the only shore birds observed, we saw no Bald 
Eagles.  From Llano Seco we traveled up to the Chico Oxidation Ponds were the 
first bird we saw was a Varied Thrush in the Black Walnut trees just inside of 
the gate.  Again the duck and geese numbers were quite low however the 
Virginia Rails and Soras were calling loud enough that I could even hear them 
and several made appearances along the levees.  Another great day to be out 
seeing what you could see!!Luck!F&DRedding, CA

Hi birders,
I encountered a huge flock of around 500 waxwings around 9:50 AM at 
Kirkland and Grant Ave west of Garfield Ave. The flock flew off to the 
east in the 20 minutes I was observing it.  I was able to hear several 
waxwings making the harsher, burry calls of Bohemians.  In flight I 
picked out at least 5 large waxwings with darker bellies and dark 
undertails. This area often has scattered flocks of waxwings but I've 
never seen this many at once. Good birding.

view.  Friendly folk - but sorry, didn't get contact info.  --Apparently

  This bird is somewhat of a conundrum and we bow to waterfowl experts in the 
end but note the following; 

 
 Like Trumpeter - the bird presented a Canvasback sloped head; the neck was 
kinked at an angle at the body and photos show that; the red border on the

         Hi all,
 I went up there at noon and looked at the swan.  I'm not convinced it's a 
Trumpeter.  It does have a v-shape to the forehead feathering, but several 
other things bothered me.  Before I left to go see it, I forwarded the 
pictures to Jim Snowden of Chico, a fellow who's looked at more swans than any 
one I know in California.  Here's his response (Jim doesn't like the term 
Tundra, so still calls them Whistling Swans): 

 " A small percentage of whistlers have the V pattern. In the best picture, the 
head appears to have a distinctly rounded profile which is not what one expects 
with a trumpeter. Compared to the goose and the can, the swan does not appear 
to be of a much greater size. The swan appears to be a whistler, pending better 
photos. Jim" 

 
  I didn't have any way to get better photos, but somebody should.

This bird is somewhat of a conundrum and we bow to waterfowl experts in 
the end but note the following;

Like Trumpeter - the bird presented a Canvasback sloped head; the neck 
was kinked at an angle at the body and photos show that; the red border 
on the lower mandible is very apparent; there is no yellow lore marking; 
the forehead feathering shows the V clearly; comparing the swan size to 
Canada Geese size with the bird looking not much bigger than a Canada 
from some angles and much much bigger at other angles; the bill black 
area going into the eye is as big, or almost as big (width and height) 
as the eye as viewed in the pictures; the feet of this juvenile 
presented as blackish and did not have Trumpeters reported yellow-orange 
mottling with some black; bill appeared black at the base and tip with 
some pink in the middle like Trumperter juveniles and is seeable in some 
photos.

By the way, the adult swan at the Chico oxidation pond appeared to have 
U shaped feathering on the forehead in several pictures while the 
juvenile had a clear V shape in my photos.

Direct size comparison between the two species seems the most reliable 
and consistent feature.

Closer pictures will be difficult without permission from a private land 
owner at the site.  Possibly someone with a higher resolution camera and 
longer lens can get better pictures from the fence along the street.

Hi all,
I went up there at noon and looked at the swan.  I'm not convinced it's a
Trumpeter.  It does have a v-shape to the forehead feathering, but several
other things bothered me.  Before I left to go see it, I forwarded the
pictures to Jim Snowden of Chico, a fellow who's looked at more swans than
any one I know in California.  Here's his response (Jim doesn't like the

This was reported as the 2nd N.A. record, and the 1st was from Greenland!

Hello all,

I posted to Shasta Birder's Group Photos - Bob's Photos - a few, 
mediocre at best, pictures from across the pond of Geoffrey Helmbold's 
Trumpeter Swan immature on Ross Pond.

Possibly only the 4th County Record?

Thanks to Geoffrey and Carol for the assist on the pictures.

One picture shows the V shaped feathering on the forehead and another 
shows the S shape to the neck.

The only records for Shasta County that I have are the following:

12/27/1991 - 2 birds with 23 Tundra Swans seen by Red & Nancy Modeen at 
Lonetree Pond, Anderson

02/27/1993 - 3 color marked birds seen by Rob Holquist at Lee Road, McArthur

01/31/2-15 - 6 birds seen by Don Marsh off Dee Knoch Road, Fall River Mills

(Bill & Theresa Von der Mehden and I had a distant single probable 
Trumpeter Swan in Glenburn many years ago but we got no pictures and had 
no direct comparison with Tundra Swans - so that is only an unverified 
or unsubstantiated record.)

Has anyone heard of other records?

Hello all,

Today Geoffrey Helmbold found and photographed an immature lone 
Trumpeter Swan at Ross Pond in Redding.  This afternoon we were able to 
scope the bird and take some distant pictures from a public road.

As long as birders stay on the public road they are welcome to come look 
for and at the bird.  It is a limited access area area. Geoffrey will 
forward an update each day he still sees the bird and we will get that 
to the Shasta Birders group.

Directions are to take Oasis Road East off I-5, follow it and it turns 
into Old Oregon Trail, then turn right on Paso Robles and follow Paso 
Robles (it intersects with Portero Road) but continue on Paso Robles a 
short 2 blocks where it dead ends.  You will pass an intersection on the 
right with Sunbeam Circle.  There is room on the pond/lake side of the 
road to park and look over the house there at the opposite edge for the 
feeding swan.  A telescope is useful but not required to see the Swan 
but it is to ID it.

Plug Paso Robles and Portero Road into your GPS and that should get you 
to the right corner.  Geoffrey has sent in an eBird report with a map 
attached which can also guide you.

Keep Lookin' Up!

 Darliss and I spent the morning birding the Coleman/Battle Creek Wildlife 
Area, although it was overall not very birdy there was great deal of Bald Eagle 
activity.  In addition to a single (we could not locate the second) adult at 
the nest site near the hatchery we observed 5 juveniles that ranged from first 
year to probable 3rd year plumage the latter have a white head and trail 
streaked with dark feathers.  We also saw eight Steller's Jays, although we 
have had Steller's in the area before we never observed this many.  The ponds 
near the hatchery held very few ducks and we heard no rails or Sora.

 Darliss and I left Redding at 6:30am heading to Crescent City with hopes of 
seeing the Common Scoter first reported late last week.  We arrived at 
Crescent Harbor before 11am to heavy rain and less than favorable viewing 
conditions.  This morning as is often the case with rare birds sightings we 
glassed the area searching for scopes, cameras with long lens and others clad 
with binocular and we weren't disappointed!  Feeding along the empty slips at 
the northern end of the boat basin was the target of today's travels.  
Although the weather could have been better one couldn't asked for a more 
accommodating bird.  We great close-up views and even manager a few 
acceptable pictures.  If you go be sure to checkout Stone's Lagoon, this 
afternoon there were great views of a large number of 
Canvasbacks.Luck!F&DRedding, CA

Hello all,

Thanks to Bill and Judee Adams and their photos comparing to our photos, 
we have found out that there appear to be two birds at the end of 
Whitmore Plains a Harlan's Hawk with some white on the nape and eyeline 
area, with an orange/white tail with a wavy tailband AND the immature 
Red-tailed Hawk with a finely banded tan and brown upper tail (which the 
Adams photographed) - both birds have a white streaky or speckled upper 
breast on a dark - dark bird.

If you go looking the easiest distinction I think is the tail pattern 
and the whitish markings on the head.  The Harlan's should appear more 
overall blackish and the Red-tailed should appear dark brownish.

Bob et al:  Sharon and I were in McKinleyville last night when we got 
the info about a possible common scoter in Crescent City Harbor.  So we 
drove up there today and got great looks at the bird from about 40 yds 
away and a coupla so-so pictures.

The bird spent all day so far in the new rebuilt boat basin between 
docks B and C and the main channel. This bird spent considerable time 
eating barnacles attached to the pontoons supporting the docks.

Rob Fowler's directions were spot on.  If you come up to see the bird, 
be sure to start at the new boat basin which was rebuilt after the 2011 
tsunami.  It's where virtually all of the commercial boats working out 
of Crescent City are moored now.

Could you post this info on Shasta Birders for me?

Thanx.

Hello all,

There has been a post on NWCalBird at 7:30 pm about a photo from last 
week of a possible/probable Common Scoter in Crescent City Harbor.  This 
is a previously lumped European species with Black Scoter that is now 
recognized as a separate species and is fairly identifiable by it bill 
markings and color.   Many folks are headed up there tomorrow and will 
let CalBirds and NW CalBird know if they find the bird.

It is reported that there is only 1 prior record from Greenland!!!

As they say fingers crossed,

Bob

Hi,

 

I saw two Brown Creepers in the park. One was doing a breeding display! It
flew in a downward spiral around an oak trunk. Then a 2nd creeper flew to
the tree. The spiraling bird flew up to the arriving bird. They both flew to
another oak and a brief spiral display occurred again. So do they pair up
before returning to breeding territories? This pair was on the trail the
edges the airport. 

 

I saw two Red-breasted Sapsuckers, one on the wooded trail between the
Landmark Oak and island, where I've seen them before, and one on the island.

 

A pair of Bald Eagles were flying together over the nests that are across
from the island's gravel bar. By the way, I've noticed an eagle on the
Turtle Bay nest a couple of times this past week. A second one flew from the
nest one of the days.

This morning around 11 am I had a group of 6 Trumpeter Swans in the flooded 
rice fields below the Fall River Mill's cemetery on Highway 299. I observed the 
swans from Dee Knoch road.  Unfortunately the swans flew and headed north 
towards Glenburn.  I will look for them and post if I refind them.  I'll post 
photos tomorrow night.

Quick email - Don Marsh will be emailing that he had a small group of 4 
or 5 adult and juvenile Trumpeter Swans in ponds seen below the cemetery 
and from Dee Knoch Road.  There is a larger group of Tundra Swans in 
another pond there too.

 Darliss and I spent most of the morning at ARP not real birdy, how we have our 
FOS Tree Swallows and our first ARP Varied Thrush.  There were a good number 
of Greater Yellowlegs at the downstream end of "The Island", two very bright 
colored Eurasian Wigeon drakes and lots of peeps that the sun rendered 
unidentifiable. Luck!F&DRedding, CA

If anyone's interested in seeing a Pintail/Gadwall Drake hybrid, there 
was one at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge yesterday
morning.  Just park at the viewing platform parking lot at the Southeast 
corner of the tour route and look in the pond to the South.
There were other ducks there, but he was alone and very calm.  Just 
actively feeding.

Good morning everyone, 
 

 Over the past couple of months, I have tested a number of options for 
automating the system by which we announce and volunteer to lead the regularly 
scheduled field trips offered by Wintu Audubon Society. While several of the 
options had all of the features I had hoped to find, they were often 
complicated to setup or charged a fee or required users to register… three 
things I did not want to obligate anyone else to suffer. Additionally, most of 
these solutions were designed to manage volunteers who may need to cover 
different shifts at a single event rather than a single volunteer who would 
step-up to lead a one-time, single-shift field trip and, as a result, were 
often too difficult to navigate or to check in at a glance. 

 

 While I am still hopeful to stumble upon an automated solution (with mobile 
friendly features, text reminders, shift swapping, automatic calendar syncing, 
and file sharing) at zero cost and easy enough to hand off to someone else, for 
the time being (and through the end of the season), I have set up a page at 
VolunteerSignup.org: https://www.volunteersignup.org/79HKH 
https://www.volunteersignup.org/79HKH which I have found to be simple to use, 
non-spammy, and just the right price: free. 

 

 So please sign-up!
 

 I have also created an online form for trip leaders to fill out. It just takes 
a couple of moments to fill out and submit (in addition to the regular write-up 
that we submit for the website and newsletter). Take a look and feel free to 
email any comments you might have. http://goo.gl/forms/mvQYquLZCi 
http://goo.gl/forms/mvQYquLZCi. 

 

 Here is a draft proposal for next year’s outings: 
https://www.volunteersignup.org/Q9F9X https://www.volunteersignup.org/Q9F9X. 
You will notice that I have suggested a couple of changes: 1) The Second 
Saturday Walks will highlight more sites around the county and, 2) The All-Day 
events may occur on either the Second or Fourth Saturdays (or both). I hope, 
with these adjustments, to see greater participation from club members and area 
residents as we explore more areas more often. 

 

 At January’s Board meeting, we all agreed to submit 100% of the Chapter’s 
outings to eBird effective the beginning of the year. I have created an account 
for the chapter with the username WintuAudubonSociety and the email 
ebird AT wintuaudubon.org mailto:ebird AT wintuaudubon.org. So, post as you normally 
do and simply include/share your submission with the Chapter account. 

 

 Contact me if you have any questions or comments at chadscott AT wintuaudubon.org 
mailto:chadscott AT wintuaudubon.org. 

 

 Thanks, 
 
Chad

I had about 5 huge flocks of geese flying south about 30 minutes ago. This
has been happening every evening this week between 5:30 - 6:00. Are these
birds coming from the north or have they been forging all day and are now
headed to their overnight roosting spot?

Noticed in our records that we have had this particular Harlan's Hawk 
(judging by the pictures taken) on the following dates at nearly the 
same exact location:

12/31/2012-
02/19/2012-
02/26/2012-
02/10/2013-
01/02/2014-
01/15/2015-

This bird is pretty identifiable by the largely speckled dark and light 
upper breast area.

The adult male yellow-bellied sapsucker is still present on Dee Knoch
Rd. near McArthur, but it has moved a short ways.  I saw it today
farther south from its previous location, where Dee Knock makes a
90-deg. westward turn.  There is a large gate there with a sign noting
that the place is Indian Springs Ranch.  The bird was just west of
that gate, working on a deciduous and a juniper tree between the gate
and some outbuildings set back a bit to the south of the road.

I also checked the original spot briefly but saw no sapsuckers there.

Hello all,

Made a trip this beautiful day to the Oxidation Ponds on Chico River 
Road and saw the following:

  2 Trumpeter Swans
1 Eurasian Wigeon male sleeping
2 Redhead Ducks
6+/- Canvasback Ducks
6-8 calling Sora Rails, 1 seen
4-5 Virginia Rails calling
1 American Bittern flying
2 Sandhill Cranes

Did not see any Blue-winged Teal as previously reported.

I would encourage anyone interested in Trumpeter/Tundra Swan to go look 
at these two.  We have made many trips and looked through thousands of 
Tundra Swans in the Central Valley looking for Trumpeter Swans with no 
success.  Here just drive to the ponds, walk to the right rear most pond 
and the swans have been seen there daily.  Easy Peasy!

A stop at Roxie's Deli in Los Molinos for a Tri-tip or a Brisket BBQ 
Sandwich is almost worth the trip in itself.

Hi 
This past Saturday and Sunday, I've found a Eurasian Wigeon at different 
locations in Anderson River Park. 

Saturday afternoon one was just downstream of the riffle that is straight out 
from the Landmark Oak at the end of Dotson. 

Sunday one was with many wigeon by the gravel bar on the island.
I saw a pair of bald eagles both days in the latter area. Saturday I enjoyed 
hearing and seeing 40 Tundra Swans flying along across the river in this same 
area.

Brooke, a passerby reported this to me when I was at TurtleBay last week, and I 
subsequently saw it as I was driving up I-5 another evening--also about 4:40.  
The passerby thought they were robins, which do roost in large numbers at TB.  
What do you think?Dan

  This afternoon at 4:40 I was heading out to run errands and I saw a HUGE, 
HUGE flock of starlings. 

I drove up behind the Best Buy to watch them and there were about 10 other 
people there just gawking at the spectacle. 

NONE OF THEM WERE BIRDERS. THERE WERE SO MANY STARLINGS THAT NON-BIRDERS WERE 
PULLED OVER WATCHING THEM. 

They were flying over Turtle Bay and I estimated 20,000 birds. The flock was 
visible from a mile away. 

It looks like they went in to roost at Turtle Bay, so tomorrow might provide 
another show. 

Good birding,

Subject: Massive, massive starling flock
From: "'Brooke M. McDonald' bmm11 AT humboldt.edu [shasta_birders]" <shasta_birders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

This afternoon at 4:40 I was heading out to run errands and I saw a HUGE,
HUGE flock of starlings.

I drove up behind the Best Buy to watch them and there were about 10 other
people there just gawking at the spectacle.

NONE OF THEM WERE BIRDERS. THERE WERE SO MANY STARLINGS THAT NON-BIRDERS
WERE PULLED OVER WATCHING THEM.

They were flying over Turtle Bay and I estimated 20,000 birds. The flock
was visible from a mile away.

It looks like they went in to roost at Turtle Bay, so tomorrow might
provide another show.

Good birding,

Brooke

Hello all,

There is an adult winter Mew Gull at Kutras Lake up on the green today, 
a Harlan's Hawk up on the Whitmore Plains at it's highest end today & 
there was a female Costa's Hummer at our house in Old Shasta a few days ago.

I posted photos in Bob Yutzy's Photos today.  They were posted in order 
when I loaded them - but were re-ordered by aliens in the program.

Hello All,

I photographed this bird at the Colusa Refuge yesterday.  Can anyone
identify it.  It was with a group of blackbirds.  You can see a red-winged
blackbird one in a photo for size comparison.  I can't find it in my bird
book. I'm hoping you can help.

Morning,
There were at least 5 Great Horned Owls hooting in the fog at Anderson River 
Park this morning. Only one was a male based on pitch. I watched a female 
hooting near the river. She would tip forward and cock her tail as she hooted.

Good morning Larry.  In the image it's difficult to see the leg and 
bill color, first winter Cal Gulls usually show pink legs and a long pink bill 
with a black tip.  I think the dark coverts back pattern  lean toward a Cal 
Gull.  fs

I found a male Northern Flicker Intergrade at Redding Memorial Park this 
afternoon around 3:30 at the East side of the park. It was seen with a female 
and another normal red-shafted male. They all appeared to have salmon 
underwings. 

 

 They all seemed to be hanging out around the trees along the roadway at the 
far (east) side of the park. I also spotted a single Varied Thrush in the same 
location. 

 

 I was unable to get a photo of the intergrade Flicker but I did manage a 
pretty good video of the bird as it was digging around the base of one of the 
large evergreen trees.

Hi,

 

On Saturday I visited a few places along the Sacramento River. These were
the best birds at each spot.

*         Brown Creeper along Reginato Trail. Sadly, no Varied Thrushes

*         2 adult Bald Eagles, flying upstream from I5 where it crosses the
river in Anderson

*         3 adult male and 1 female Barrow's Goldeneyes, 1 immature Bald
Eagle, and 1 Osprey,at Turtle Bay

*         8 Mute Swan's at the usual location in Anderson River Park, 5
adults and 3 immatures. Many wigeon but no Eurasian.

*          

Brooke, I found the swale and yes there are many sparrows there. I saw song,
fox, and Lincoln's. It's definitely worth more investigation.

 

At home, I have 2 Orange-crowned Warblers and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet as
regular visitors to my suet feeder, camellias, and hummingbird feeders.

Hello all,

Just got back from going to see the Tundra Bean Goose at Nestucca Bay 
National Wildlife Refuge, Cloverdale, Oregon.
I just added 5 photos from our visit there on Jan. 6, 2015.

Hope they came through okay.
