This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for June 26.

A BRANT continued along the lower LA River in Long Beach south of the Del Amo crossing through June 22 and a male CANVASBACK continued on the river just below Willow Street through June 20.

Up to ten BULLER’S SHEARWATERS were observed from San Clemente Island from June 18-22.

A MAGNIFICENT FRIGATEBIRD was found about 3.5 miles off Redondo Beach on June 21.

A BROWN BOOBY was a few miles south of Pt. Fermin on June 21 and another was seen from San Clemente Island on June 23.

The AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB continued through June 22. It has been seen both at Rosamond Dry Lake and at Duckbill Lake. Remember that a letter of permission is required for entry.

Also at the Piute Ponds was SABINE’S GULL at Duckbill Pond on June 23. A LEAST TERN continued and a LESSER YELLOWLEGS was also present also on June 23.

Both a male and female HEPATIC TANAGER were seen and heard on June 20 near Guffy Campground along Blue Ridge Road west of Wrightwood.

A ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK was along the Playa Vista Riparian Corridor on June 20 (possibly the same bird found earlier west of this location). From the north end of Dunbarton in Westchester walk the path between the two houses, then follow the path and ramp to its intersection with the main pathway. From here go right about 50 feet to the spot where the bird was seen.

Other ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAKS were near Paseo de los Robles on Via San Sebastian in Palos Verdes Estates on June 18 and at a residence in Rolling Hills Estates on June 20.

A female type YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD was seen flying over Playa del Rey on June 21
