      The wintering Hermit Warbler was present in it's usual conifer on the hill behind shelter 12 across the bridge at the south end of the park.

        Hi all,

        I've been living in Fullerton for about a year and a half, and I was
        wondering about adding to my list of birding locations and making some
        birding connections. I mainly bird (and eBird) in my neighborhood now,
        by Chapman Park, but also occasionally at Bolsa Chica and San Joaquin
        Marsh. I birded seriously in Oregon for 10 yrs before moving down here
        and accumulated a decent list over the years. I'd be interested in
        meeting other fairly serious birders here, and possibly doing some Big
        Days this spring.

        I'd be interested to meet up and do some birding in the near future.

        Good Birding,
        Karl

          Hi Karl!



          The best place to start would be the Sea and Sage Audubon Chapter website,
          which has gobs of information on birds and birding in Orange County,
          including places to go and field trips you may attend.



          Good birding!



          Regards,

              Visited LNRP this morning with a couple friends. We didn't find a whole lot along the creek except for a large number of wigeons out on the grass and a green-winged teal between shelter 3 and the playground, but we had better luck along the lake. We only made it about 2/3 of the way down the western side but we found a chipping sparrow perched on the western edge of the fence on the north side of the lake and a Townsend's warbler working the Eucalyptus trees along the main road just south of the side road going to shelter 10. Standouts on the lake included a scaup (too far to distinguish species), a gadwall, a possible canvasback (again, very far but we saw the white body and a reddish-brown head), and a cinnamon teal, along with the usual waterbirds.

                Spent a couple hours at LNRP earlier trying to locate the black-and-white warbler and met up with another OC Birder for a while but we had no success. However, I did find a couple Townsend's warblers, one foraging in the trees on both sides of the stream by Shelter 2, and the other just outside the tennis courts. Other highlights included a downy woodpecker also by the stream close to the tennis courts, several ruby-crowns throughout the park (I pretty much stuck to north of the dam, only venturing as far as the eastern limits of the dam before turning around), and a spotted sandpiper bobbing around in the cemented dam outflow. A few photos from today below.

                  Thanks to Carolyn for sending me the location to find the Clay-colored Sparrow yesterday.
                  I was certain I found it, and even heard the buzzing call.
                  When I got home I posted my best photo on Facebook, and Sandy Remley noted I had a lovely winter Chipping Sparrow.
                  I still needed a Chipping Sparrow this year, so it was a good bird, but the Clay-colored will be found another day.
                  All the expected Warblers (Wilson's, Townsend's, Orange-crowned, Yellow-rumped, etc.) and a Western Tanager were found in the creek bathing, but I didn't manage to spy any rare birds.

                  Here is a link to my Chippiing Sparrow, that looks much like a Clay-colored to my untrained eye.

                    The Northern Parula continues in his location below Shelter 2.  I saw him at 9:00 AM and then again at 9:45 AM.  Both observations caught him at the creek side foraging on the ground.  There was also a Black-and-white Warbler working the base of the trunk of a sycamore about 100 feet east of that location.  The same spot also produced one Purple Finch male.

                      There was a Black and White Warbler this AM (10/18) by the stream, NW of Shelter 3, across the road (33.55274,-117.71190). Shelter 3 looks totally different sine all the Shothole Borer infested Sycamores have been removed. The infestation is also affecting willows and live oak in the park.

                       

                      FYI – There has been a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak on nonaccessible private property in Laguna Niguel for the last 5 days.

                        Black-and-white Warbler continuing on the larger of the two remaining black willow trees at the bouldery creek near Shelter 7 (the Palm Warbler spot). Another lifer for Cyrus! They have been doing some tree removal over here as well, with only the two trees remaining over the bouldery area.

                        Jfyi there is an Alzheimer's walk tomorrow I guess, so the park may be pretty busy. They are setting all the tents up right now on the lawn directly to the left of the entrance.
