An AMERICAN BITTERN was at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB (at Little Piute near the Ave. C portable restroom) on July 21.

 

The adult YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON continues at the Ballona Freshwater Marsh. It is most often seen from along the path south of the intersection of Jefferson and Lincoln and was reported there through July 19.

 

A RUFF was on Duckbill Lake at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB from July 20-21. A letter of permission is required for entry.

 

A SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER was along the lower LA River just above the Willow Street crossing in Long Beach from July 17-21.

 

A WILLOW FLYCATCHER was found at Hansen Dam on July 18. It was in the pepper trees along the south edge of the ball field.
