This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for March 25.

The RED-NECKED GREBE continued at Castaic Lagoon through March 21.

The AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHER at the San Gabriel River mouth in Long Beach was present through March 23. It has been seen on both the south (Orange County) side and the north side. Check for the bird from the end of East Ocean Blvd. For county listers, all of the middle jetty is considered to be within LA County.

A GLAUCOUS GULL was at the San Gabriel Coastal Basin Spreading Grounds in Pico Rivera on March 19. The gulls here come and go frequently, thus finding a particular bird is often problematic. Enter from the east end of Mines Ave, east of Passons.

The YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER continued at Veteran’s Park in Sylmar through March 19. It is usually in the eucalyptus trees around Frisbee golf goal #7 and Restroom #1 at the southwest part of the park.

A NORTHERN “YELLOW-SHAFTED” FLICKER was at Loyola Marymount University on March 19.

At Madrona Marsh in Torrance, an EASTERN PHOEBE continued through March 23 around the south pond. Hours are 10-5 Tuesday through Sunday.

Three VERMILION FLYCATCHERS continued through March 22 at Oakdale Memorial Park in Glendora.

The TROPICAL KINGBIRD continued between the north and south lakes in Area 3 of El Dorado Park in Long Beach through March 20.

A continuing BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at American Gold Star Manor in Long Beach through March 23. It has been seen at both the north and south end of the property.

A PALM WARLBER continued along the east side of the LA River in the field just north of the 91 Freeway in Long Beach.
