45
129Least Bitternemail2011.06.19Don SterbaBallona Freshwater Marsh1 - "Still singing near the south end. Haven't seen any young yet."
46
129Least Bitternemail2011.06.19Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor1 - softly singing from a narrow part of the channel west of the round LMU library, a few yards east of where Para Way dead ends into Bluff Creek Dr. "This is my 1st LEBI in the PVRC."

52
129Least Bitternemail2011.07.17Don SterbaBallona Freshwater Marsh2 - "heard poo-poo-pooing from two different spots: south end and about 1/3 way down (from the elbow) the Lincoln leg. This has been a highly unusual year for singing LEBI, far more singing than I've ever heard before. Maybe there are only males around, and they're still trying to lure in females?"
53
129Least Bitternemail2011.07.24Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor1 - singing again, this time near the new school construction area.
54
129Least Bitternemail2011.08.07Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor1 - "I finally saw a L Bittern in the corridor after hearing one singing 4 times since mid-June. A black-capped male flew between reed patches in the narrow channel just west of Para Way."
55
129Least Bitternemail2011.08.21Don SterbaBallona Freshwater Marsh1 - Heard a loud L Bittern "krek-krek" call for the first time since March 4 - all other summer calls have been singing "poo-poo-poo".
56
129Least Bitternemail2011.08.21Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor2 downy L Bitterns in the narrow channel near Para Way - "where I heard poo-poo-poo calls June 19 & 26 and saw an ad. male Aug 7. I took the attached photo through a chain-link fence and reeds. This chick had rusty streaks along its neck and was calling a weak "krek-krek-krek" while a 2nd bird, not seen, made similar but even weaker calls about 20 ft away and is assumed to be a 2nd chick."

176Virginia Railemail2011.06.19Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor1 - "Monotonously calling (kik kik ki-dik ki-dik ki-dik, etc etc) between the LMU letters and the waterfall. There were additional rail-like noises closer to the waterfall, so VIRA may be nesting. Too difficult to see in the reeds. I hadn't heard any VIRA in this area since mid-April."

"I heard repeated grunts and alarm calls but no "kid-ik" calls this time. I last heard one on July 6 and thought it/they may have left the area, but now nesting seems plausible."

83
176Virginia Railemail2011.08.28Don SterbaPlaya Vista Riparian Corridor6 east of the LMU letters - "I used my iPod nano to induce them to call. Five of them were in two separate groups of 3 and 2 between the "waterfall" and the large Hughes buildings. A single bird was between the LMU letters and the waterfall."
