Preliminary Results for Oceanside CBC – 26 December 2021

Preliminary Results for Oceanside CBC – 26 December 2021
By – 7:35 am
Not all areas have been completely tabulated for the December 26, 2001 Oceanside CBC, but the preliminary estimate is 179 species, a bit under what we have had in the past few years. Several areas were not counted due to offshore weather conditions and lack of participants, but we were able to get on Camp Pendleton once again. We had 81 participants, about the same as last year (further recruiting of SD birders necessary).Notable species include Greater White-fronted Goose (Libby Lakes), Common Murre (seawatch), Iceland Gull (Buena Vista Lagoon), Yellow-crowned Night-Heron (San Luis Rey River), Red-naped Sapsucker (Gopher Canyon- north), Plumbeous Vireo (Las Palmas St. Carlsbad), Cactus Wren (Camp Pendleton), Purple Finch (Leo Carrillo, Gopher Canyon- south), Grasshopper Sparrow (Camp Pendleton), Green-tailed Towhee (Carlsbad Outlet), Hermit Warbler (Buddy Todd), Palm Warbler (Carlsbad Outlet, Fire Mountain), Yellow Warbler (Carlsbad residential, Oceanside WWTP), Wilson’s Warbler (Buena Vista Lagoon, San Luis Rey River), Summer Tanager (El Arbol Carlsbad), Western Tanager (Carlsbad residential).Thanks to everyone who participated in our CBC. Much gratitude to Paul Lehman for conducting the compilation, filling the gaps of coverage, and being most helpful throughout. Buena Vista Audubon hosted the event at the Nature Center and many thanks to the Board of Directors/staff/volunteers, including Joan and Bo Bockman, Pat Brown, Annette Schneider, and Natalie Shapiro. Thanks to Tim Burr for coordinating efforts at Camp Pendleton, and monumental thanks to Joni Ciarletta for compiling the data.Jane MygattCarlsbad
