This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for April 8.

A LONG-TAILED DUCK continued through April 2 near the Ballona Creek mouth. It was last seen near the Pacific Ave. bridge, but moves up and down the channel.

A female WHITE-WINGED SCOTER was near Lifeguard Station #58 off Dockweiler State Beach in El Segundo on April 2.

The NEOTROPIC CORMORANT at the north shore of the lake at Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas was reported through April 5.

A DUSKY-CAPPED FLYCATCHER was in the eucalyptus grove at Creek Park in La Mirada on April 6. The grove is just north of Imperial Highway. Undoubtedly this is the same bird that has wintered here for a number of years, but it can be difficult to find.

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

A PLUMBEOUS VIREO continued at Wheeler Park in Claremont through April 6. It was last seen by the northwest corner and playground area.

The GRAY CATBIRD at Monte Verde Park in Lakewood was reported through April 4. It has been seen along the east (San Gabriel River) side of the park by the bridge that is just inside the park. The park is private and viewing must be done through the fence (from the pathway on the west side berm of the river).

The CLAY-COLORED SPARROW at Vina Vieja Park in Pasadena was seen through April 6. Another continued near the southwest corner of Oak Park Cemetery in Claremont through April 4.

An adult male BALTIMORE ORIOLE was at Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas from March 29-April 6. It has been in the eucalyptus trees around Group Picnic Area #1 in the northeast part of the park.
