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

Single WHITE-WINGED DOVES were at Pt. Fermin Park in San Pedro and at the Playa Vista Riparian Corridor on June 2 and around the parking lot at Apollo Park near Lancaster on June 3.

Continuing through June 5 was a PECTORAL SANDPIPER at Duckbill Lake at the Piute Ponds on Edwards AFB (letter of permission required).

Very out of season was a LEWIS’S WOODPECKER at the far end of the burn area at Charlton Flat in the San Gabriel Mountains on June 3.

The WHITE-EYED VIREO along the Playa Vista Riparian Corridor was present through June 8. The bird has been vocal and moves around the area, but can be difficult and sometimes impossible to see. It has generally been around a hillside seep along Cabora Drive. This spot is well to the northeast of the dirt parking area at the head of Cabora Drive ( and just short of Oberrieder Park, but on the opposite side of the channel—Google Earth coordinates are 33.970790, -118.421365). Access to Cabora is from Lincoln Blvd. about 200 feet west of Loyola Marymount Drive. Alternative parking can be had at the bottom of the hill on Bluff Creek Drive.

Two likely continuing PURPLE MARTINS were at Peck Road Water Conservation Park in Arcadia through June 5.

A BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER was at Tierra Bonita Park in Lancaster on June 3.

A CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER was found near Big Pines in the eastern San Gabriel Mountains on June 2. This bird was east of Appletree Campground by mile marker 9.86 and about 100 yards upstream from Big Pines Highway along Mescal Creek.

San Clemente Island continued to be productive, reporting a YELLOW-THROATED VIREO on June 2, a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER on June 6, a TENNESSEE WARBLER on June 2, a ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK from June 2-6 and one to two INDIGO BUNTINGS continuing through June 7.
