Nutting's Flycatcher in Santa Cruz
A NUTTING'S FLYCATCHER has been frequenting a residential area in Santa
Cruz. It was first found by Michelle Scott on New Years Day, but the
identification was not completely established until today. I am sorry to be
tardy in posting this, but we needed to work out some access issues with
the people living in the area.
The bird is along Laurel Street. From Hwy 1 turn inland on Laurel, go past
King Street. The bird has been seen on both sides of the street in the
middle of the next block and has most often been seen feeding on olives in
trees in front of the house at 1425 Laurel. The best viewing is from the
public street. Please respect the privacy and private property of the
residents. Under no circumstances should birders enter private property to
see this bird.
More information has been posted on the Monterey Bay Birding mailing list
I have posted a description and some photos of the bird I took today at:
Don Roberson has a page of additional photos and discussion devoted to this
Other birds seen in the area today include the continuing BROWN BOOBY at
Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County and the continuing EMPEROR GOOSE at Elkhorn
Slough, Monterey County.
