Rare Bird Alert: September 6, 2019

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Arizona and Florida host continuing ABA Area rarities this week, with Berylline Hummingbird (ABA Code 4) and Common Crane (4) in the former and a Black-faced Grassquit (4) in the latter.

September rarities mean Alaska rarities, and the Bering Sea is starting to really produce this week with Jack Snipe (3), Lesser Sand-Plover (3) and Gray-streaked Flycatcher (4) on St Paul and Pallas’s Bunting (5) and Dark-sided Flycatcher (4) at Gambell.

There’s one 1st record to report this week, and its comes from a species that we’ve seen a lot of in the last couple months.  An Illinois 1st Limpkin (because, what else?) was seen in Richland in the southern part of the state.

Kansas had a Long-tailed Jaeger in Barton this week.

Noteworthy birds for Colorado include a Little Blue Heron in Adams and a Red Phalarope in Jackson. 

Utah had its 5th(?) record of Brown Pelican this week in Box Elder. 

In Nevada, a Roseate Spoonbill was photographed in Nye. 

California’s 3rd record of Common Ringed Plover was seen in Orange and has been very accommodating, which is all the nice for such a subtle identification challenge.

Washington’s 2nd record of Little Stint, a real one this time, was seen in Clallum. The previously recorded Little Stint turned out to be an almost as exciting Red-necked Stint.

In Texas, a Long-tailed Jaeger was discovered in Reeves, and the state’s 5th record of White-crowned Pigeon was photographed in Galveston. 

Tennessee’s 3rd Brown Booby was found in Humphreys. 

In Georgia, a Sabine’s Gull dropped in to Troup. 

An apparent Heermann’s Gull was photographed in Brevard, Florida. This would represent the state’s 2nd record.

Good for Quebec was a Prothonotary Warbler in Châteauguay.

Nova Scotia had a Brown Pelican in East Jeddore.

And in Newfoundland a Common Ringed Plover and a Roseate Tern, the latter the 3rd record for the island and the province, were both seen in Trepassey.


Omissions and errors are not intended, but if you find any please message blog AT and I will try to fix them as soon as possible. This post is meant to be an account of the most recently reported birds. Continuing birds not mentioned are likely included in previous editions listed here. Place names written in italics refer to counties/parishes.

Readers should note that none of these reports has yet been vetted by a records committee. All birders are urged to submit documentation of rare sightings to the appropriate state or provincial committees. For full analysis of these and other bird observations, subscribe to North American Birds, the richly illustrated journal of ornithological record published by the ABA.
