Bird List, Notes and Photos for 3/26/10- San Lorenzo River





Common Merganser and ( center) Wilson's Snipe; photos by Steve Gerow

This Santa Cruz Bird Club field trip visited the San Lorenzo River in downtown Santa Cruz. Several of our highlights were in the stretch of river between Water Street and Highway 1. David Sidle picked out a WILSON'S SNIPE on a sandbar in the river, and soon two more came into clear view. Snipe have been quite scarce in Santa Cruz in the last few years. Then Kathy Kuyper noticed a dark MERLIN that flew in and perched east of the river. Eventually it flew, passing over us in good light, and landed in a nearby redwood. We were able to get good views of the "helmeted" looking solid dark head, with only the throat showing some light streaking, very densely streaked underparts, almost solid dark tail, without obvious bars, and very dark underwings, adding up to a rare BLACK MERLIN (subspecies suckleyi). A female AMERICAN KESTREL was also in this area, possibly part of the pair that has nested near the river in some recent years. A pair of WOOD DUCKS flew up the river, continuing north of Highway 1. We also had good studies of several COMMON MERGANSERS and BUFFLEHEADS. Swallows were numerous, with well over 100 CLIFF, and moderate numbers of VIOLET-GREEN and N. ROUGH-WINGED, plus a lone TREE near Broadway. AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES were everywhere. There was little variety in gulls, though, mostly just CALIFORNIA and WESTERN. We found only one each HERRING and GLAUCOUS-WINGED, and no Mew Gulls were left at all.

Introducing the Santa Cruz Bird Club News

Welcome to Santa Cruz Bird Club News, a new feature from the Santa Cruz Bird Club that will work in conjunction with the Albatross newsletter and the SCBC Website to keep you informed about what is going on with the bird club, and with birds and birding in Santa Cruz County.
A major purpose of this news/blog site will be to feature bird lists, photos, and notes from the bird club's regular field trips, so if you are interested in what happened on a certain field trip, this is the place to look. Also look here for occasional news about other bird club activities, notes and features on interesting local birds, conservation news, ID tips, photo quizzes, and more!
Among this month's entries you will find our first photo quiz, followed by lists for most of the SCBC field trips over the last few months, some including additional notes, and some interesting pictures (thanks especially to Wendy Naruo for providing some of her great photos.)
The field trip reports and other entries are sorted by dates, and can be accessed by clicking on the year and month on the menu at the right side of this page. So explore what's here now, watch for more, and we hope you will find this enjoyable and useful.

Notes, Photos, and Bird Lists from March 5, 2010- Terrace Point and nearby areas



Photos from March 5 by Wendy Naruo:
top row (l to r): Red-tailed Hawk, Northern Harrier, Red-winged Blackbird
middle (l to r): Red-shouldered Hawk with gopher, same, Red-winged Blackbird
below middle (center and right): Western Meadowlark between N. Mockingbirds, N. Harrier
bottom (l to r): Western Meadowlark, Cedar Waxwings, battling gulls (Glaucous-winged vs. Western X Glaucous-winged hybrid), N. Harrier

This field trip visited Terrace Point and some nearby areas. An alternate-plumaged PIGEON GUILLEMOT swimming offshore of Terrace Point was a new arrival. Raptors were numerous around the area, including four NORTHERN HARRIERS- an adult male, an adult female, and two immatures (in faded juv. plumage). A juv. RED-TAILED and two juv. RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS, and a WHITE-TAILED KITE were among other raptors hunting in the field. A PEREGRINE FALCON also flew by, and a GREAT BLUE HERON and GREAT EGRET were also hunting for rodents. WESTERN MEADOWLARKS and AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES were looking more colorful than in mid-winter, and RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS were displaying throughout the area. A GREEN HERON was among the regulars at Antonelli Pond. At the end of the trip, a few of us checked West Cliff Drive, where the ROCK SANDPIPER was back in its favorite area just east of Woodrow Avenue, and another PEREGRINE FALCON was flying around.
