  1. "Slow" day at Lake Camanche, at least compared to normal. Still can't complain though, I had some really nice birds! Fourteen Red-breasted Mergansers on a central valley lake is quite unexpected, to say the least! https://ebird.org/checklist/S127141608
  2. Still nothing compared to @Avery, But I have now recorded 100 species!
  3. I got to 168 today with a last minute Canyon Wren.

  6. Yeah, If I was to do a pelagic down in SoCal, it would definitely be one of these, given how long of a drive it is from my home to reach any of the pelagics down there. I've been eyeing that trip on August 26th for some time now, but I don't really think I can make it work this year.
  7. Man! It wasn't all that long ago that I was getting lifers on pelagics like that! Looks like it was a great trip! In particular, congrats on the Red-billed Tropicbird! That's a great bird! I really need to get on one of those SoCal pelagics!
  8. I'd add it. Birds like alcids, shearwaters, and the other pelagic species are very rarely recorded, I'd be shocked if anyone else on here has a recording of one to add.

  12. 1. Yep! Not 100% certain on all the birds, but at least two are definitely Rock Sandpipers. 2. Yes, Short-billed. I've certainly never seen one with such pale primaries. I'd bet the bird is leucistic.
  13. Red-masked have more red on the face, extended below and beyond the eye. They also have red patches on the underwing, which these birds don't have.
  14. Least Sandpiper with those yellow legs and overall brown coloration.
  15. I got the Red-flanked Bluetail today! Lifer 466! It was incredibly uncooperative for me though, I got good looks through my bins, but my best photo is so bad I won't upload it here.
  16. I'm now up to 164 species for the year after spending the day chasing rarities around in Santa Cruz and San Mateo Counties. Still a lot of easy birds I am missing!
