Spotted by Erik Lyons in town, and pointed out to me by Kristie Nelson. This is a bird typically found south of here in the deserts. Somehow, one found its way up to hang out with Eurasian Collared Doves and eat seeds at the local feeders.

A lone Red Knot was foraging along Navy Beach this morning. I watched it for a good half hour, picking through the water amongst the Wilson’s Phalaropes and gulls. The phalaropes were eventually flushed by some non-birders and the Knot went with them, to the north. Very exciting to see 🙂

Date of sighting: Aug 2, 2013

During our birdwalk yesterday at County Park, our group of seven birders from around the Bay Area and myself saw/heard W. Wood-Pewee, Lazuli + Indigo Bunting, Yellow + Orange-crowned Warblers, Great Blue Heron, A. Coot, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, and a N. Harrier! Despite the orioles and grosbeaks absence, we still have lots of beautiful birds around!

Good birding!

I was puzzled when I first saw this almost all dark Sapsucker with a red forehead while photographing birds at lower Parker Creek. Upon closer inspection and a bit of help, we now believe this to be a dark juvenile Red-breasted Sapsucker.

Date of sighting: July 26, 2013

Today during this morning’s birdwalk at County Park, a large group, myself, and Erik Lyons, MLC Project Specialist, saw the Indigo Bunting that has been hanging out there. Whether or not its the same bird is unsure but both birds were striking males so its likely. It was seen halfway down the boardwalk from the lawns on the east side, then on the west side past the interpretive signs.

Also seen were Orange-crowned warblers, a Lazuli Bunting, White-breasted Nuthatch, Macgillivray’s warbler (juv and adult), Yellow warbler, and Wilson’s Phalarope.

A gray-crowned rosy-finch joined me on the Lundy Canyon trail as I wandered up to enjoy the beautiful summer wildflowers! It was cooperative enough to come close enough for a quick shot.

Date of sighting: June 17th, 2013

A great stable of the Mono Basin is the varied call of the mimidae bird, the sage thrasher.  The smallest of the thrashers, it’s song is described as a long series of warbled phrases, often repeated. These birds were seen north of Mono Lake near Conway Ranch, however, they can be found at South Tufa quite easily.

Good birding!
