Black-tailed Gull in Long Beach now??!

Late this morning, Robert Hamilton discovered a Black-tailed Gull at Alamitos Bay near Long Beach, CA. The bird is resident in East Asia, including China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea. It is a rare vagrant to Alaska and northeastern North America and an even more uncommon visitor to California. This marks only the second or third record in the state of California.

I am keeping up to date records and photographs of the Black-tailed Gull again, here:

Some other goodies showed up while photographing the Black-tailed Gull.

Yellow-green Vireo and Galileo Hills

I couldn’t make it down to De Forest Park on Friday for the Yellow-green Vireo due to prior obligations but I was there first thing Saturday morning…with about 30 other birders. After 4 hours of not seeing anything other than Warbling Vireos, Orange-crowned’s and Yellow Warblers I gave up and headed home.

Sunday I decided to check Galileo Hills to try and catch any early fall passerines. It was relatively slow with a limited number of Warblers: Orange-crowned (3), Yellow (25+), MacGillivray’s (1), Northern Waterthrush (3+). Passerine migration is certainly starting with FOS Ruby-crowned Kinglet (3), Willow Flycatcher (6) and one Cassin’s Vireo (1).

A few photos:
