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

Up to four BROWN BOOBIES were recorded offshore several miles south and west of Long Beach on April 5.

The RUFF at Cabrillo Beach was present through April 7. It has been seen on the west side of the inner beach, south of the boat launch and near the pier.

A NORTHERN “YELLOW-SHAFTED” FLICKER was at Legg Lake in South El Monte on April 4. A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER continues near restroom #7, also being present on April 4.

A TROPICAL KINGBIRD continues at El Dorado Park in Long Beach. It was reported through April 9 in Area 3 near the bridge between the two lakes.

A male BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER was found at Wardlow Park in Long Beach on April 4 and reported through April 8. The bird has favored several areas in the park, these include the area south of the northwest ball field, along the west border of the park and into the neighborhood on the east side of the park (east of Stanbridge).

A PALM WARBLER was at Sand Dune Park on April 7. It was seen near the middle of the park.

The HARRIS’S SPARROW at White Point Nature Preserve in San Pedro was reported through April 6. Originally the bird was around the entrance road and parking lot, though most recently it has been by the baseball field and adjacent dumpster and restrooms.

A female PAINTED BUNTING has been at a residence in La Canada through April 4 and was present for about ten days prior to that.

A male ORCHARD ORIOLE continued to be seen through April 9 at a residence in Cheviot Hills.
