This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for July 29.

A RED-BREASTED MERGANSER and a GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULL continued at Lake Balboa in the San Fernando Valley through July 26.

There have now been two YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS sighted in the Ballona area. There are two spots where the birds are most often seen. One is from along the path south of the intersection of Jefferson and Lincoln at the Ballona Freshwater Marsh and the other is along Ballona Creek upstream from the end of Pacific Ave. in Playa del Rey. At least one of these two birds was reported through July 28. They can be easily distinguished by their forehead color, one being clean white/cream-colored and the other having a black spot or smudge.

A NORTHERN HARRIER was along the bluffs south of the Ballona Freshwater Marsh on July 26.

A RUFF continued at Duckbill Lake at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB through July 24. A letter of permission is required for entry.

A SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER was along the Rio Hondo in Rosemead from July 22-23. From the west end of Rush Street continue walking west to the river and then up the east side berm and bike path. The bird was adjacent to the north end of the golf course.

At least one INCA DOVE continues at Col. Leo H. Washington Park in Los Angeles through July 22. It was last seen opposite 91st Street.

Two EASTERN KINGBIRDS were found along Lincoln Blvd. at the Ballona Freshwater Marsh on July 24.

A male SUMMER TANAGER was at the George F. Canyon Nature Preserve on the Palos Verdes Peninsula on July 27.

A possible BOBOLINK was by the northwest willows at Peck Road Water Conservation Park in Arcadia on July 28.
