0: Trumpeter Swans

5 Trumpeter Swans were found here Jan 12 by Gary Graves. The birds were in a flooded field and will likely move around this area. It is possible that they have been present for several weeks as there was a report on the Havasu CBC of Tundra Swans from this area.

1: Red-throated Loon

Two juveniles are present on the Delta, sometimes together and often moving around a lot. Recently, they have been seen more consistently from Havasu Springs, as they have been foraging and loafing around the buoy line between there and the refuge headquarters.

2: Red-throated Loon LHC

Possibly one of the birds seen in Dec or a new bird was found cruising along in Thompson Bay Jan 11

3: Neotropic Cormorant--Bluewater

This is the spot in California to check for this bird--it has been seen in the narrow canal here.

4: Neotropic Cormorant--Parker Dam

At dawn or dusk, check this powerline for flocks of cormorants at their roost. At least one Neotropic Cormorant is known to roost here. This is currently one of the best places to see Neotropic Cormorant in California.

5: Mew Gull

The juvenile Mew Gull has usually been seen at Havasu Springs, although it is sometimes seen off the Refuge Headquarters. The marker is my favorite spot to scan from Havasu Springs, and the Mew Gull occasionally flies by here. It may be anywhere there are Ring-billed Gulls.

6: Mew Gull

An adult Mew Gull was seen on the parking lot at Windsor Beach, loafing with Ring-billed Gulls, January 4.  It has not been seen (or looked for?) since.  Unfortunately the state park charges a steep fee ($15) for entry, and they tend to be unsympathetic to birders only wanting to stay a few minutes.

7: Thayer's Gull

This is the pond that is favored by the Thayer's Gull. If the STP is closed (weekends), it is sometimes possible to see the gull from outside the fence if it is sitting up on the dike. Keep in mind that the bird often leaves to forage on the lake, so it may be seen anywhere along the lake shore.  Site Six has been the most consistent spot for it away from the STP.

8: Glaucous Gull

The placemarker is at the red-and-white lighthouse, which is one of the most consistent spots to see the Glaucous Gull.  Site Six is another good spot to check.  A "sit and wait" strategy sometimes pays off, as the bird doesn't seem to favor any part of the lake; it simply moves around among potential food items.

9: Nutting's Flycatcher

This is the area where the Nutting's Flycatcher has been seen recently. From highway 95 on Planet Ranch Rd this area is by the mile marker 2 sign. You will have cliffs on your right and the riparian on the left. This area is best early morning (before 9AM Arizona time) and late afternoon (after 4) as this appears to be where the bird roosts at night before moving along the edge of the riparian and toward the 2.5 mile spot. If you are here in the middle of the day be patient as the bird infrequently calls at this time.

10: Curve-billed Thrasher

Check in at the office as you enter. The thrasher hangs out in Ernie's cactus garden where Ernie feeds the birds. Once you enter turn right on Ernies Way, when you reach the top of the hill the garden is too your left

11: White-winged Scoter

One or two have been seen off and on, more often from the Refuge Headquarters. Sometimes with Surf Scoters, sometimes not. Sometimes well on the Mohave side with goldeneye flocks, occasionally off the peninsula or in the CAP canal.

12: Surf Scoter

This species has been seen on and off in this area, with up to three seen recently.

13: Surf Scoter

A young male is seen consistently here. While it often hugs the Arizona shore (to the point where it is only visible scanning from the California side), it does move around below the dam.

14: Pacific Loon

Up to four individuals have been seen on the Delta recently, usually well off Havasu Springs.

15: Eastern Phoebe

One has been present in the parking area of Catfish Paradise this winter.

17: Neotropic Cormorant--Bill Williams

A returning adult is usually easy to pick out here, as it sits on emergent sticks with Double-crested Cormorants.

18: American Crow

A flock of American Crows, surprisingly rare in most of the LCRV and in the county, has recently been found foraging on this field. They seem to be wandering as well, using other agricultural fields in the area.

19: Northern Parula

A male is wintering at 'Ahakhav Tribal Preserve. It seems to favor the small cottonwood between the parking area and the bathrooms.
