This is the Los Angeles Rare Bird Alert for August 11.


The female LONG-TAILED DUCK along the LA River in Long Beach just below Willow Street was reported through August 8.

A COMMON MERGANSER was at Quail Lake on August 6. Quail Lake is just east of Interstate 5 on the north side of Highway 138.

The male RED-BREASTED MERGANSER continued on the lake at Harbor Regional Park in Harbor City through August 1.

SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS were above the Willow Street crossing on the lower LA River in Long Beach from August 6-7 and in Cudahy between Florence Ave. and Clara Street on August 8.

An adult SABINE’S GULL was along the LA River in Cudahy from August 10-11. It has been seen south of Clara Street.

YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS continue at the Ballona Freshwater Marsh in Playa Vista. Most frequently they have been near the bend of the marsh adjacent to the corner of Lincoln and Jefferson. Two were observed on August 7 and at least one bird was reported there through August 11.

A SUMMER TANAGER was at Eaton Canyon in Altadena on August 7. It was at the north end where the fire road to Henninger Flat begins (just before you reach the bridge ahead of where the road begins its ascent). Parking and access to the fire road is from Pinecrest.

A male INDIGO BUNTING was in the San Gabriel River channel just below the San Gabriel River Parkway in South El Monte on August 6.
