ho : see note under “bird sp” :
well, turns out there was one here, I guess I did hear it after all :

at end of my birding (few hours later, after this log) joined up with Colby’s (& Sarah & Max’s) OBA group here just after Pam O photoed the plover (& MA Godwits) and pointed out the mudflat with a few shorebirds on it for us to see

(Rare filter 500): flocks flying into bay from ocean as I arrive, got to many hundreds, easily 500, and still hundreds out on bay as I walk along

(Rare): 1 heard, and I am pretty sure of it, matches exactly, except it comes up Rare so I hesitate since not 100% certain it can’t be somethig else like Lesser goldfinch (though I really don’t think so, sounded perfect for SAPH and no other different calls mixed in and the SAPH call is richer bigger than LEGO) : guess I’ll see if anyone else logs one here these days : near parking lot by first closure gate (is closed today);

Update: at least half dozen SAPH have been reported (on OBOL) along coast in couple weeks after my birding day, so I feel good now about also recording mine.

singing ; doing call notes learned 2-days ago that are like mix of wren/Macgillivrays ; also guess can sound like juncos ... one seen after I pished to be sure I was really hearing dry hard note junco tics ... apparently is Foxes ... ; (also do small thin note like Song can do)

(Rare): heard only call note , clean smoochy open : given comes up rare I might just make note and log it as “sp.”, as I did with SAPH, but others saw a male here yesterday, so I’ll go with what sounds good to me for WIwA

3
warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.)

1-2 orig. logged as Palm Warbler:
ho singing short song , longer than dribble , but not full song ; by parking lot at first closure gate ; half hour afterwards noted others logged a CHSP here yesterday, so I played both tapes to myself to make sure since CHSP never came to mind when heard dry tic trill song : and I am not 100% sure, but I do think Palm;

but,
Update: spoke with Brodie, and he was here yesterday with Stefan S.’s OBA tour, and the teens who were with them had a brief view of what they wanted to call a Bay-breasted WA, and apparently Stefan agreed that it was “a Bay-breasted/Blackpoll type” but couldn’t be ID’d better than that given inadequate view. None of them reported that such a bird was here.
When Brodie told me (a week later), I played tapes for these 2 birds, and Blackpoll Warbler certainly could be another candidate for what I heard today, I can’t now say which is more likely, Blackpoll or Palm. Blackpoll would be a Life Bird so I’ve never heard one. I am wondering if that is why I could have said “I do think Palm” but uncertain enough to even wonder if I could have mistaken CHSP ... if it was a Blackpoll ...

passerine sp.
5
bird sp.

very birds here but most passerine are tucking in and not seen , so am doing a fair amount of birding by ear only , and there are some vocals I am struggling with, incl some sounds that are fairly new to me and I still need more practice with ; example : 1 prob Black-bellied Plover heard ? other sounds could be shorebirds or seabirds I need to learn better vocals of ? a few mysteries
