This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for May 9.

A LEAST BITTERN- apparently present since at least April 25- was in upper Franklin Canyon Park on May 3.

SOLITARY SANDPIPERS were at the Sepulveda Basin and at Madrona Marsh in Torrance on May 2 and at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB (letter of permission required for entry) on May 3.

A possible ELEGANT TERN x SANDWICH TERN was at the Ballona Creek mouth on May 2.

INCA DOVES continue to be reported at Col. Leo H. Washington Park in southeast Los Angeles, primarily on the south side of the park. At least three were present there on May 2.

A few COMMON GROUND-DOVES continue along the San Gabriel River in Bellflower. The most recent report was of two birds at the end of Trabuco Street on May 3.

At Ralph Dills Park in Paramount, the DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER was reported through May 4. A reliable spot in the park has been near the end of San Vicente St., so this should be a good place to start searching for it. Check the park anywhere between San Mateo and San Miguel Streets.

Angel’s Gate Park in San Pedro hosted a SAGE THRASHER on May 2.

A PALM WARBLER continues at Banning Park in Wilmington. It was seen through May 7 inside the gated museum yard area.

A GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE was at a residence in Rolling Hills Estates from May 2-3.

A WHITE-THROATED SPARROW continues at the South Coast Botanic Garden in Rolling Hills Estates. It was last seen in the Volunteer Garden on May 3.


CORRECTION: Please remove WILLOW FLYCATCHER from last week’s RBA.


This report is sponsored by the Los Angeles Audubon Society.
