  1. Hooded Warbler plus Red-Eyed Vireo on a nest! - Huntington Central Park LINK
    DATE: Jul 3, 2015 @ 3:16pm, 1 day(s) ago
    I was at the park all morning looking for these birds but was only able to find them after some more experienced birders showed up around 9:30-10am. Curtis, Larry and a 3rd gentleman whose name I cannot recall. Dave was also out there. We eventually found the Hooded Warbler on the northern center area of 'the island'. We were on the inside underneath the trees. We were able to pin it down by it's chipping calls. After all 6 of us present saw it then it began to sing. It was relatively cooperative and was in the same general area for probably nearly an hour. I was able to get a couple decent shots with my tiny camera. The Red-Eyed Vireo was spotted rather quickly by Curtis after we began looking for it on the southern side of 'the island'. Following the direction of it's movement, I believe Dave made the great spot. The Vireo was sitting on a well hidden nest! She stayed there and let us all look at her from some distance for probably an hour. We supposed she decided to make a nest and lay eggs without a male present. In any case it was a nice surprise after I spent much of the morning frustrated. The pic below is the best I could get with my snapshot camera. I'm sure others, better pics will be posted in other birding forums I am unaware of.One other note but I have not seen it reported. I think the Cooper's Hawks nested. I saw three of them hanging out together for a while earlier in the morning. It was a bit hard to tell if it was one adult with two juveniles or both adults with one the way they were back-lit. One bird was definitely smaller so assumed it was the male.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/NoiZmxUrbUX-OiD6564NQpKnMyhAQt4JwDKm1oMNog=w474-h631-no

    Happy 4th of July to all!
    I walked Fairview Park this past weekend and
    spotted these 2 Quail coming out of the dense brush near one of the
    bridges over the rocky stream beds.
    They seem to be young, their bodies,
    little bigger than a softball.
    I wondered if anyone know exactly what
    they are.
    I posted the photos on Flickr where people thought they might
    be either California, European(Common) or Japanese Quail.Here is a photo
    of each bird.

  11. No luck this a.m. on Hooded Warbler; Red-eyed Vireo seen LINK
    DATE: Jun 29, 2015 @ 1:20pm, 5 day(s) ago
    I arrived at Huntington Central Park about 6:15am this morning, my hope to find the Red-eyed Vireo on this--my third--try. Bumped into a few other birders during the time. To my knowledge, none of us saw OR heard the Hooded Warbler at least while we walked or stood together.
    
    About 9:45am, I was headed back to the car when a ruckus broke out in a tree behind the brown electrical box on the east side of the trail nearest the redwood tree cluster (east side of the island). A number of birds were attacking a crow in a tree, including several American Robins. A number of species of birds were present there, including the Red-eyed Vireo.
    
    The Vireo then flew over to a sycamore near the two picnic tables closest to the brown utility box. It continued its alarm call there briefly, heard by myself and Jack Lindahl.
    
    I got a very clear view of the birds head/breast prior to hearing the bird and called Jack over, but we were not able to refind the bird when it became quiet after issuing alarm calls, despite looking, thus no photograph.
    
    So, at least one of the two birds is still there today, perhaps the warbler is still around but just in a different part of the park. I walked clear around the island, slowly, twice and through the middle as well often standing in one location for reasonably long periods.
    
    Happy birding,

  17. Hooded Warbler & Red-eyed Vireo LINK
    DATE: Jun 28, 2015 @ 10:22am, 6 day(s) ago
    The Hooded Warbler, Red-eyed Vireo, and Bell's Vireo continued this morning in the riparian slough known as the "Island" at Huntington Central Park.
    
    The Hooded Warbler began singing at sunrise (~6am) from the cottonwood grove (about midway along the northern edge of the slough) before moving off. It also started singing from those cottonwoods yesterday at dawn. Today the bird sang from 6 to 7ish but less than yesterday. I didn't hear it after 7 so it either went silent or moved west into the lake vegetation.
    
    I finally found the Red-eyed Vireo this morning in the top of the ash trees at the southeast corner of the slough. I located it by several "meerzh" calls it made at 6am. Lighting was poor and I got only a brief view of it. I could not refind it after it flew into denser cover. An uncooperative and silent bird.
    
    The Bell's Vireo was singing all morning in the slough and out on the lake. A very late Western Tanager was calling from the eucalyptus grove north of the amphitheater.

  21. Hooded Warbler update LINK
    DATE: Jun 28, 2015 @ 5:54pm, 6 day(s) ago
    I refound the Hooded Warbler this afternoon from 4:30 - 5:00 pm toward the western side of Talbert Lake at Huntington Central Park. I could not see it but heard it softly singing "swee-swee-swee-swirip" low in willows southeast of the restrooms located east of the Park Bench Cafe. It was in the willows adjacent to the large sycamore tree leaning out over the lake where the willow vegetation meets the open waters of the lake. Unfortunately the water and mire make that area impenetrable right now so hopefully it will move to a more accessible area.
    
    This morning starting at sunrise it sang intermittently for about an hour before falling silent. The singing was much louder this morning than this afternoon. As it sang it moved back and forth along the riparian slough high up (20+ feet) in the trees, not low as previously reported. This bird can move around quite a bit.
    
    The Bell's Vireo also sang this morning from the slough before moving west and north into the swampy north end of Talbert Lake.
    
    No sign of the Red-eyed Vireo.

    DATE: Jun 27, 2015 @ 6:48am, 8 day(s) ago
    Just got word from Mike Huang that the HOODED WARBLER was seen again at 6:30am this morning. 
    
    It was farther to the west from it's location yesterday.  He gave me the following GPS: 33.70459 -118.00304

  27. Evening report - Hooded Warbler and Least Bell's Vireo cont at HCB LINK
    DATE: Jun 27, 2015 @ 6:57pm, 7 day(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    After missing both birds at their reported AM locations late this afternoon, I followed weedy overgrown "homeless paths" thru the willow forest and flooded area (nearly dry now) due west from "island" area, and eventually refound the male Hooded Warbler and the Least Bell's Vireo. Both birds were 100-150 meters due west of the crossover ditch separating the eucalyptus grove (south side) from the lawn area (north side). Both birds undoubtedly forage east and west along the entire length of this damp ditch that is densely overgrown on higher ground with willows and weeds.
    
    Good luck,

  29. RE: Hooded Warbler LINK
    DATE: Jun 26, 2015 @ 2:45pm, 8 day(s) ago
    I arrived at Huntington Central Park about 7:25am and bumped into Karl. We walked together to the S. side of the island. Karl recognized the call, I did not. Shortly thereafter, we saw Becky and Steve Turley who saw the bird, heard the bird and, I understand, got a photo of the bird. Apparently the bird may have been seen first by the Cabe's the day or so prior.
    
    If you enter the island from the east tip (near where the concrete drain is) you are walking inside the canopy on the island. Shortly after going inside, begin to look on the northerly side of the area. I think most agreed the bird didn't get much more than 10-12 feet off the ground, and Tom FH saw it on a log resting on the ground and reported the bird to be very bright. The bird is quite cryptic and hard to see, but its song is plenty loud and I believe we also heard 'chink' calls. I never did get to see it, despite four hours of trying, but I heard it repeatedly. There were probably 20 of us there at one point.
    
    As the morning wore on, the bird got quieter and quieter and was quiet for longer periods of time.
    
    I'm not sure what time the Turleys saw the bird, but it was before 7:40AM or so. I suggest starting early.
    
    The bird would move along the northerly side (mostly, except at the very end) of the island. You can walk inside the canopy from one end to the other now, then cross over the muddy creek at the end to move outside the canopy.
    
    A Least Bell's Vireo was also heard within the canopy and later at the far SWesterly end by a number of us.
    
    Happy birding,

    There is a on-going clean-up process to transfer those riparian and pond areas in HCP to something like Mile Square Park, including the "island" area, I guess. Enjoy your birding there. I must go there too.

    I just had the Bird singing around 11:35 very near the spot I mentioned in my first post. I was able to get audio but no photos as the bird tends to like to stay in very thick cover. It is a very bright adult male.

  39. Beginners' Bird Walk LINK
    DATE: Jun 25, 2015 @ 11:27pm, 9 day(s) ago
    Sea & Sage Audubon has scheduled a BEGINNERS' BIRD WALK at
    the Fullerton Arboretum on Sunday morning, July 5th at 8:00
    am to 9:30 am. The walk will be led by Garett Lepper.
    
    Interested in birds but maybe overwhelmed? Curious what that
    bird is that is singing all night long in your neighborhood?
    Is that a Blue Jay? What type of hummingbirds are showing
    up at your feeders? If these are some of the questions
    you've been asking, we hope you will join us at the
    Fullerton Arboretum for an informative walk intended for
    those interested in birds or just beginning to bird. During
    the hour and a half walk around the beautiful grounds of the
    Fullerton Arboretum, we'll see, hear, and learn how to
    identify at least two dozen birds. This walk will hopefully
    inspire and inform you to enjoy the everyday birds in your
    lives. MEET where the nature center is at, just inside the
    entrance.
    
    If you are a birder who has friends that are curious about
    birds, please don't hesitate to inform them of this opportunity.
    
    TIME: Meet at 8:00 am, begin walk by 8:15 am
    DURATION: Less than an hour and a half
    COST: None, although donations for the Arboretum are requested
    DIRECTIONS: From #57, exit Yorba Linda Blvd and go west to
    the light at Associated. Make a left into the school heading
    towards the stadium, and then make a left into the dirt
    parking lot where the road ends and splits left & right.

  41. Great Horned Owl - Mile Square Park LINK
    DATE: Jun 24, 2015 @ 3:25pm, 10 day(s) ago
    Took a nice long walk yesterday at Mile Square Park. Mostly the normal birds. Did not see the Vermillion Flycatchers but there was a lot of yard work going on where I normally see them. I did hear and briefly see a Pacific Sloped Flycatcher. I had not seen any flycatchers over there in a couple weeks. On the way out I did catch sight of a Great Horned Owl. I think there hasn't been one reported there in quite in some time. I could have easily missed it but I looked up at the right time and it wasn't real far up in the tree. It was only a couple hundred feet from where they are setting up for the carnival so I do not think it will be in that area for long. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/--0bMNng9vU9tkyvHm5hoFJcm_H89rZYU_6CLbVVjw=w474-h631-no

    accepted record for the species (also at Bolsa) and there is no photo of
    this species for the state.

  49. Bridled Tern Photos LINK
    DATE: Jun 24, 2015 @ 12:32am, 11 day(s) ago
    I posted my photos of the Bridled Tern to flickr (see link below). The bird can be identified from Sooty Tern due to the thin white supercilium extending past the eye, contrasting grey back and tail from the jet black wing tips, longer tail extending past the primaries, and white extending up the neck with a contrasting black crown/grey back. Spectacled (Grey-backed) Tern can be eliminated due to the dusky dark grey back. There is also a brief video showing the aggressive nature of the bird around the nearby Elegant Terns. I last received a call from Bruce Aird around 8:10pm that the bird was still being seen at the tern colony so there is a good chance it will still be there at first light, although who knows for how long? Hopefully it will stick around for a few days so more people can see it. I know Brian Daniels still needs it for a county bird so it must be a good bird! It was a lifer for most people today, including myself.

    I also posted a couple of bad pictures of the continuing Red-eyed Vireo at nearby Huntington Central Park. Due to the late date of the bird Curtis was hypothesizing it might decide to summer in the park. The bird has made a scolding call but does not appear to be singing (maybe it?s a female?) so refinding it may prove difficult, but we managed to refind it this afternoon by staking out the trail leading into the east end of the island at 33.704563, -118.001912 (which isn?t an island but a forested area).
