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

Two SOLITARY SANDPIPERS were at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB on March 21. Remember that a letter of permission is required for entry. No exceptions.

COMMON GROUND-DOVES persist in Bellflower with a single bird reported along the San Gabriel River at Trabuco Street on March 25.

A PLUMBEOUS VIREO continues at Wheeler Park in Claremont. It was last seen on March 26 between the park office and children’s pool.

The WORM-EATING WARBLER at the Village Green Condominiums in Los Angeles was seen through March 26 at the back of unit #5378. Very early in the morning (before sunrise) seems to be the best time. The Village Green complex is south of Rodeo Road, west of La Brea. This is private property, but birders are welcome.

A continuing BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at the Earvin Magic Johnson Recreation Area in Willowbrook through March 25. It was last seen in pines along the northeast wall of the park.

The PAINTED REDSTART at Oakdale Memorial Park in Glendora was seen through March 20 in its usual spot. Head southwest about 200 feet from the two white mausoleum/columbarium structures in the north central part of the property to a large Cork Oak tree. This is where the bird is being seen. Three VERMILION FLYCATCHERS also continue at the park.

A HARRIS’S SPARROW was seen at White Point Nature Preserve in San Pedro from March 18-25. Check the area around the entrance road and parking lot.

A WHITE-THROATED SPARROW continued at Hahamongna Watershed Park in Pasadena through March 24. It has been near the southeast corner of the Rose Bowl Riders area.

A male ORCHARD ORIOLE was seen from March 22-26 in Cheviot Hills.
