This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for June 16.

COMMON GROUND-DOVES continued along the San Gabriel River at the end of Trabuco Street in Bellflower (on the west side of the river) through June 11 and at the Linden H. Chandler Preserve in Rolling Hills Estates through June 13.

A WHIMBREL was at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB (letter of permission required) from June 13-14 and a SEMIPALMATED PLOVER was there from June 9-10.

Two GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULLS continued at Lake Balboa in Van Nuys through June 14.

Three LEAST TERNS were at Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas on June 12 and a BROWN PELICAN continued there through June 10.

A VERMILION FLYCATCHER was at the Sepulveda Basin just north of the wildlife area and south of the restrooms on June 15.

The WHITE-EYED VIREO along the Playa Vista Riparian Corridor was present through June 11. It has generally been in the area around a hillside seep along Cabora Drive. The spot is well to the northeast of the dirt parking area at the head of Cabora Drive (Google Earth coordinates are 33.970790, -118.421365). Access to Cabora is from Lincoln Blvd. about 200 feet west of Loyola Marymount Drive. Alternative parking can be had at the bottom of the hill on Bluff Creek Drive.

Lingering single CEDAR WAXWINGS were in Pasadena on June 12 and at the Sepulveda Basin near the wildlife lake on June 13.

A NORTHERN PARULA was at the Village Green Condominiums in Los Angeles on June 10. It was along the north and east edges of the central lawn area. An AMERICAN REDSTART was here on June 11 along the east fence line near unit 5112. This is private property, but birders are welcome. Please be thoughtful of the residents.

A male SUMMER TANAGER was at Apollo Park near Lancaster on June 14. It was along the north fence line near restroom number 2.


CORRECTION: The Purple Martins At Peck Road WCP listed on last week’s RBA were determined to be Northern Rough-winged Swallows (either melanistic or showing some discoloration).
