This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for July 31.

A female LESSER SCAUP was along the LA River in the Sepulveda Basin on July 30. It was below the Burbank Blvd. crossing.

An immature YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON continues at the Ballona Freshwater Marsh. The marsh is at the corner of Lincoln and Jefferson in Playa Vista and the bird has been near the “elbow” adjacent to the intersection. It was last reported on July 26.

A juvenile SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER was at the south end of Rosamond Lake on Edwards AFB on July 27. Other birds of interest in the area included two CATTLE EGRETS and a PYGMY NUTHATCH (near the metal shelter along the C-dike).

Also on Edwards AFB property is a continuing LEAST TERN at the Piute Ponds. It was last reported on July 28. Remember that a letter of permission is required.

Another SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER was along the lower LA River in Long Beach from July 27-29. It was seen both above and below the Willow Street bridge.

Three BLACK SWIFTS were over Claremont Wilderness Park and nearby Cobal Canyon on July 25. The birds first appeared over the parking area around 5:45PM.
