Red-throated Pipit, Tropical Kingbirds
- Thu, 16 Oct 2003 -- There is a report on the N.Calif.Birdbox today by Al
DeMartini who found a RED-THROATED PIPIT among American Pipits at the Ukiah
Sewage Treatment Plant today. It was on the dike between the north and
central ponds and stuck to the north side of the dike in the short grass.
Yesterday (?) he found a _japonicus_ race AMERICAN PIPIT on the
coast at the Alder Creek estuary at the end of Alder Creek Beach Road.
Today Jerry White relocated and studied the bird.
Today Jerry White refound the two TROPICAL KINGBIRDS near Miner
Hole Road, but they were actually about along Highway 1 about 0.3 mi N of
Miner Hole Road in a brush patch. One of the birds appears to have lost
most of its tail.
