Late this afternoon, 10/21, I found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull on Biolab Road, 
Merritt Island NWR, Brevard County. In checking the refuge website, it mentions 
that Franklin's Gull has been seen less than 5 times on the refuge and that it 
has not been seen since 1988. However, I do not know when their on-line 
checklist was last updated. The water levels were still high along here but 
there were also a few shorebirds along Biolab Road, including Greater and 
Lesser Yellowlegs, 3 Stilt Sandpipers, one Avocet, one Short-billed Dowitcher, 
a few Least Sandpipers and some Black-bellied Plovers. I also found a few 
Savannah Sparrows and a female Painted Bunting along County Line Road in 
Volusia County.

Subject: Snail Kite in Pasco County
From: Bev Hansen <bevalhansen AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 13:20:29 -0400
The immature Snail Kite that Charlie Fisher found on Saturday was still 
present at Middle Lake in Pasco County at 11:30 this morning. My husband 
Al found two of its favored perches. While standing in front of the 
picnic table, look southwest. On the far edge of the lake is a white 
pole that slants left. The kite often returned to the left side of the 
bush directly behind this white pole. It also perched on a bush to the 
left of that. And then we saw it go behind the bush to the right and out 
of sight.

A spotting scope is almost essential, unless you see the bird fly and 
can detect the white upper tail and dark lower portion of the tail.

To reach the Middle Lake boat ramp, at the boundary of Hernando and 
Pasco counties: in Hernando, go south on Spring Lake Highway (CR-541), 
which is called Lake Iola Road in Pasco County. Turn west on Dan Brown 
Hill Road. In about 2 miles, at the boat ramp sign, turn south on 
Townsend House Road, and left on Rice Ridge Road.

This morning, 10/20, I stopped off at Ponce Inlet before work and found a 1st 
cycle Franklin's Gull on the beach just north of the north Jetty at Ponce de 
Leon Inlet, Volusia County. On Saturday, 10/18, I walked around the Lake 
Woodruff NWR in DeLeon Springs, Volusia Co. I started out before light and had 
3 King Rails, 4 Virginia Rails and 6-8 Soras calling in the marshes. The most 
interesting bird was a Grasshopper Sparrow, but there were also Swamp Sparrows, 
Marsh Wrens, House Wrens, lots of Common Yellowthroats and Blue-gray 
Gnatcatchers. There was also one late Blackburnian Warbler.

Subject: American Avocet Bonanza in Charlotte County
From: Susan Daughtrey <susansd AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2014 16:55:57 -0400
Hi All,

 

I saw an extraordinary number of American Avocets this afternoon at low tide
in Charlotte County - absolutely every sand bar we passed by on our boat,
from the flats near the Gasparilla trestle northwest to Stump Pass (roughly
8 miles), had AMAV in with other shorebirds. At the Gasparilla site, there
were 12 birds, 5 at the flats by the Rum Bay turnoff in the ICW, 2 on the
sand bar across from the Stump Pass Marina at the entrance to Stump Pass,
and 13 on the sand bar between Peterson Island and Whidden Key in the pass,
making a total of 32 birds. I can't recall ever seeing AMAV before at even
two locations in one day in this county, let alone four! Impressive. There
were also 27 American White Pelicans at the Audubon Bird Island in Charlotte
Harbor, as well as two paddling along by the trestle. Also observed were two
large roosts of Great Egrets, approximately 40 birds in each - one at the
entrance to Stump Pass near the ICW, and the other near Bull Bay. In
general, there were more waders around than usual, with a particularly high
number of Little Blue Herons. Super day to be birding on the water!

 

Best,

Susan Daughtrey

Englewood, Charlotte County

Subject: Bald Eagles beginning Courtship Display
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2014 15:56:43 -0400
I just heard the local eagle pair calling and
went out for a look. I've mostly been seeing
or hearing only one at a time for a while.
Both birds were out, calling and flying in
in close formation. Anyone who wants to
check them out can park on Lake Shore
Blvd by the playground and garden area
for Lake Shore Elementary School. The
birds were flying over the (large) playground
and softball field areas and can frequently
be seen perched on the cell tower behind
the school. Things probably won't get
really exciting for a couple of weeks. At
that time the action will mostly be over the
river as the nest is across from here.

A very few other raptors have been moving
through. There have been several Red-tailed
Hawks, yesterday produced a FOS Sharpie,
a Cooper's flew over a couple of days ago
but was probably one of the pair that nests
in the neighborhood as it was actively hunting
and scattering the Starling and Bluebird flocks
as well as the few migrant passerines coming
through. Usually the manage to position
themselves just behind some clumps of leaves
and I don't get to see them anyway.

There was a large flock of Black Vultures in
MacClenny two days ago. It was odd as they
were low and circling up on thermals rather
than streaming by at higher altitude. I also had
my OS Harrier on the first of September which
I thought was early out there.

The only "good" migrant other than Avocets was
a very vocal Alder Flycatcher on SR 250 just
south of the road into 17 Mile Camp in Osceola
NF.

Subject: Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. DeLand. Volusia Co.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Wed, 8 Oct 2014 16:10:09 -0400
This afternoon, 10/8, I was leaving a meeting in DeLand and stopped off at 
Talmadge Gardens Road on the east side of town. I was driving a few miles/hour 
along the dirt road when I heard some bird activity. I stopped the car and saw 
a few birds moving around in the small trees along the road, when a 
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher flew out to the road edge and sat low in perfect 
light. The bird was an obvious Empidonax Flycatcher with bright wing bars and a 
bold eye-ring. The underparts were surprisingly bright yellow right up to and 
including the throat. The bill was small and yellow on the lower mandible.

Date: Tue, 7 Oct 2014 12:37:43 -0400
Checked Shiloh marsh (Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge) this morning
for my sharptails. First time I've had to check them this Fall. The water is
very high, but the marsh had an abundant of Saltmarsh and Nelson's Sparrows.
Mostly Saltmarsh Sparrows were seen. I named the one bird in my photographs
Nelson's simply because of the buffy throat. (correct me Dr. Greenlaw if I'm
wrong) When you watch the video notice the bird calls. I quit counting the
sharptails after 25 birds. Also saw several Clapper Rails. Beautiful morning
out there, but I got very wet getting my shots. Water almost to my knees...

Subject: Well.I very definitely did not see that coming
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 7 Oct 2014 07:28:04 -0400
Yesterday afternoon I went over to Hog
Pen Landing on the north shore of Ocean
Pond (in SW Baker County). I was looking
for passerine migrants and wasn't having
much luck (actually, no luck at all). I had
scanned the lake for ducks, gulls etc. I
moved further down the road and came to
a campsite on the water from which I could
check the area to the east for herons or
Osprey perched in the trees.

Something on the water caught my eye. It
appeare to be a few white birds with some
black on them. I assumed they were gulls
but as I kept looking I kept thinking there
was too much black on, presumably, their
primaries. I backed my car all the back to
the boat ramp and got out my scope.

I relocated the birds with binocs then pointed
the scope at them. At 20x they still looked
kind of like a few gulls bunched closely together.
I increased magnification and finally saw that
the the black I was seeing wasn't on the
primaries but comprised two large, distinct
stripes on white bodies with some gray on
their heads and thin, black upturned bills.

They were American Avocets and there were
five of them swimming at least a couple of
hundred feet from shore in water that I believe
is at least a few feet deep (boats are frequently
seen passing over that area at high speed). I
have seen Avocets briefly swimming in very
shallow water to move from one spot they can
stand up in to another a few feet away. This
was the first time I have seen them actually
actively swimming in deep water for a significant
distance. They traveled at least one hundred
yards as I watched. This was much closer to
Phalaropes bobbing along on the ocean than
any Avocets I have seen before.

I did manage to get some very bad but just
barely recognizable photos with a point and
shoot camera (with an optical zoom to 1200
mm) by going into the digital zoom range
which I basically never do. Enlarging the already
over stretched images on the computer shows
the white bodies with black stripes floating on
the water. At any rate, another new county bird
and one I definitely did not expect at this location
and exhibiting this behavior.

The birds were seen  between about 5:15 to
6:00 pm. I viewed them from the boat ramp at
Hog Pen Landing on the north west corner of
Ocean Pond. They were swimming a few
hundred yards away and were recognizable with
the scope to somewhere between one half and
one mile away and moving parallel to the east
shore (there are some houses and docks visible
along the shore there).

This morning, 10/6, before work I stopped off at Lighthouse Point Park in Ponce 
Inlet, Volusia Co., where I found a Lark Sparrow. The bird was located along 
the grassy trail that heads due west from the main parking lot. The bird was 
foraging among the rocks. There were also numerous small flocks of ducks 
heading south well offshore. The one flock that was close enough to identify 
was Blue-winged Teal.

Subject: Great day in Gulf Breeze
From: Lucy & Bob Duncan <town_point AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Sun, 5 Oct 2014 18:53:01 -0500
Hi all,

 

               Lucy and I went to Ft. Pickens this a.m. and found a few
migrants but nothing like what was reported earlier in the morning or
yesterday. That is not surprising since the mainland and greater biomass is
only about a mile away to the north. What migrants present yesterday that
did not move south overnight could be on the mainland in a matter of
minutes. We have often seen migrants move back north after arriving at Ft.
P. in fall.

 

               Back home we arrived to find lots of birds in our yard and
bathing in our small pond. By the end of the day we tallied 31 Neotropical
migrants including 12 warblers (best, a NASHVILLE). We found another
OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER in the "hood", the third one in our neighborhood this
season, and the fourth for our area this fall, a record for our area.

 

               As Jim Stevenson pointed out, the day after the front does
not produce much. They come en masse on the first wave with the front. Some
of our birds today could have come in overnight but they were probably
"leftovers" from the previous day. What did not turn up was a vagrant from
the west, unless a DICKCISSEL that Lucy found at Ft. P. this morning is
considered one. At any rate, the show is over for a while until the next
weather "event."

PS from Lucy - 

Our yard was "hopping" with migants from midday on (we were at Ft. Pickens
for the morning and finding little). In the short span of 1.25 hours, we had
21 neotropical migrants at our small manmade pond, including 10 spp of
warblers. Our Laurel Oak was alive at midday as was the pond, but nothing
that didn't come to the pond except for a Baltimore Oriole. 

It's good when it's good...

This morning, 10/4, I was driving near Astor, but on the Volusia County side of 
the St. John's River on a rural road, when I heard a very odd call. I stopped 
and turned around and drove back to the area where I heard the call. I found a 
Masked Lovebird sitting on a wire. This is the first time I have seen this 
exotic in Volusia County. It appeared to be the cage bird form sometimes called 
the Blue Masked Lovebird.

Hi all,


 We had a fair amount of birds in Gulf Breeze but for the strength of the front 
it was less than it could have been. Reports from Ft. Pickens indicate birders 
had a good day, with Scissor-tail and W. Kingbird showing up. Winds in Gulf 
Breeze remain 20 -25 mph and have actually backed to NW – NNW from N this 
a.m., great situation for western vagrants. Winds remain NW from MS to ARK 
which is also favorable for a more easterly vector of birds that migrate to our 
west. Winds tonight are forecast to be N then gradually veer to the NE tomorrow 
but I would not be surprised if a few vagrants show up.

Subject: Scrub Jay Trail (10/4/14) - Lake Co.
From: John Thomton <jthomton AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 4 Oct 2014 12:57:31 -0500
Hey everyone,

I led a bird walk this morning for the Wings and Wildflowers Festival. The main 
part of the festival is in Leesburg, but the Scrub Jay Trail is one of the 
satellite locations in Lake County that are also hosting activities. I was 
supposed to do two walks, but nobody came for the first one, which enabled me 
to do a little "selfish birding." Even when I had my small group for the second 
tour, birds were fairly active and visible all morning, and I came up with a 
pretty decent list. The mostly-beginning birders on my tour were delighted by 
what they saw. The list below combines my guided tour and my solo walk birds: 


Wood Duck
Mottled Duck
Pied-Billed Grebe
Great Egret
Tricolored Heron
Cattle Egret
Green Heron
Red-Shouldered Hawk
Sandhill Crane
Killdeer
Common Ground-Dove (at least 6)
Mourning Dove
Red-Headed Woodpecker (1 - a flyby!)
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker (1)
Eastern Wood-Pewee (1)
Eastern Phoebe (2 - my FOFs)
White-Eyed Vireo (3)
Red-Eyed Vireo (1)
Blue Jay
Florida Scrub-Jay (all 4 birds in the current resident family put on a great 
show today) 

American Crow
Carolina Chickadee (2)
Tufted Titmouse
House Wren (2 - my FOFs)
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Gray Catbird (6)
Brown Thrasher (4)
Northern Mockingbird
European Starling
Common Yellowthroat (4)
Palm Warbler (at least a dozen)
Pine Warbler (1 singing)
Prairie Warbler (at least 5)
Eastern Towhee (1)
Northern Cardinal
Red-Winged Blackbird
Boat-Tailed Grackle

The Scrub Jay Trail is located on Montevista Road, south of SR-50, between 
Clermont and Groveland, southern Lake County. 


Good birding,

John Thomton
Orlando, FL (Orange Co.)

Subject: Tonight's cold front
From: Lucy & Bob Duncan <town_point AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Fri, 3 Oct 2014 21:25:23 -0500
Hi all,

 

               Well, another front is coming through the northern Gulf Coast
and hopes are high. After the disappointment from the previous front, which
looked like a real winner for bringing birds to the coast, I would not be
surprised if there is skepticism about this weekend's prospects.

 

               But this front is stronger, with higher winds which will be
more northerly than the previous front's winds which went from NE to E
rather quickly and I think deprived us of birds. The birding prospects for
tomorrow (Saturday) are marginal for a launch tonight from the southern
Appalachians, in my opinion. Cloud cover and probable rain had not
completely cleared the southern Appalachians at launch time (about one half
hour after sunset). If birds had been rained on today, which it appears
happened from the squall line ahead of the front, would they take off?
Furthermore, winds aloft at 2600 ft are 15 to 20 mph W or WNW in N. GA, N.
AL and TN, not exactly a tail wind to the Gulf Coast. So I'm betting
tomorrow will not be a great day. But the good news is that winds aloft in
Arkansas and points west are fresh NW, great for western vagrants.

 

               Sunday morning is another matter though. Clearing skies and N
winds 14 to 18 knots Saturday night (surface, marine forecast) should
initiate a good movement of birds to the NW FL - AL coasts. I should think
that upper level winds will follow suit and be N and strong. So my bet is
that Sunday will be the better of the two days for birding. If we don't get
any birds with THIS  front, I think I'll take up butterfly watching or
botany! This has been the dullest fall migration I can remember.

Ray Webb called to say he relocated the bird, silent at the moment. Bill 
appears all dark and is overall darker. He was about 3/4 way across the field. 
Others are en route. Ray is keeping an eye on it. The bird was interested in 
playback of Western wood-pewee, but did not sing back to it.

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Tue, 30 Sep 2014 15:01:08 -0400
Hi to all,

Not only did we have 12 Black-capped Petrels and over 100 Cory's
Shearwaters, but we also had some great land birding even while over the
Gulf Stream. It was an amazing day!

On Sunday, September 28, 2014, 48 yawning, but excited birders, boarded
the Pastime Princess in New Smyrna Beach and headed out of Ponce de Leon
Inlet at 4:00 a.m for an exciting day on the ocean. We went out 65 miles
to the western edge of a canyon about 2,500 feet deep about ½ way across
the Gulf Stream.  At first light we had made it to about 36 miles
offshore. We immediately began to pick up a few Cory’s Shearwaters. We
hit the western edge of the Gulf Stream at about 40 miles offshore. This
area had numerous Cory’s Shearwaters, a single Great Shearwater,
several Audubon’s Shearwaters and a number of Sooty and Bridled Terns.
There was also a single Brown Booby and a distant jaeger. Well off the
stern a Parasitic Jaeger stayed well away from the boat and another
appeared a short time later.

We reached the Gulf Stream at about 40 miles offshore. The Gulf Stream
is about 40 miles wide here. We stopped at about 45 miles offshore at a
good Sargassum weed line to release two hatchling Loggerhead Turtles
from the Marine Science Center’s turtle hospital and also two larger
Loggerhead Turtles from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in Jekyll Island
Georgia. We went out well into the Gulf Stream in order to look for
Black-capped Petrels and, hopefully, some storm-petrels. The
Black-capped Petrels generally appear at about 60 miles offshore, this
day was no exception. Right at about the 60 mile mark we began to pick
up the dynamic soaring of a few Black-capped Petrels. We found 12
Black-capped Petrels during the day. We continued on the edge of the
canyon that drops off to 2,500 – 2,800 feet deep. We did not find much
there so we made our way back to the western edge of the Gulf Stream. We
stopped at several weedlines and had excellent looks at Bridled Terns
floating on debris and also Red-necked Phalaropes in the weedline.
Farther towards shore we found more activity with lots of Cory’s
Shearwaters, Sooty and Bridled Terns and smaller numbers of Audubon’s
Shearwaters. As we got closer to land we began to find small flocks of
Black Terns and Common Terns and we found more Brown Boobies, including
three adults with one young bird. Most of the Brown Boobies that we get
this far north are young birds. Perhaps the most remarkable sightings of
the trip were numerous flocks of passerines apparently on their way to
the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Many were American Redstarts. It was hard
to identify the flocks as they passed, but we were able to identify and
remarkable array of landbirds. I did not get an accurate count of the
land birds, but it must have been 200+ birds throughout the day. Most
were in small flocks of 10-20 birds, although an occasional single bird
would circle the boat and on two occasions a Common Yellowthroat landed
on the boat. We made it back to the dock at about 7:30 p.m.

Subject: Peregrine Falcon Baker County
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 30 Sep 2014 07:35:12 -0400
Heading home yesterday afternoon around
5:00 I was driving west on I-10 when I saw
a large bird zipping over the road just ahead
of me and only about 50 feet in altitude. The
body narrowing from chest to the end of the
long tail and long pointed wings denoted a
a Peregrine Falcon. As per Pat Leary's
posts the past few days Peregrines are
common along the coast but this was my
first for Baker County (bringing me to 240).
Merlins are uncommon but regular here.
The bird was headed south toward the
large sand mine area in the SW part of the
county. This is where I would have
expected to find them as this is a large
and relatively barren area parts of which
have only sparse ground cover. The
Trail Ridge landfill is on the county line
there and is the closest thing to a hill in
the county. It attracts large numbers of
gulls and grackles.

I may also have caught a glimpse of a Short-tailed Hawk (dark morph) some time 
between the first and second time I, Shirley and Juanita bumped into you, Roy. 
I saw it across the creek, from the boardwalk, east of the canoe deck. The Blue 
Jays and cardinals put up quite a commotion. I didn't mention anything to the 
ladies, as they were further along the boardwalk and then Shirley spied that 
Prothonotary Warbler, which was a lifer for me (if you can believe it!). So it 
slipped my mind until I was going over the morning for my blog.

Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island: The raptor migratory wave continued today
with a big push of birds between 1100 and 1130. Observing the movement from
our back deck overlooking marsh, six adult female peregrines passed in a
five minute span followed by several juv. females. Numerous osprey soaring
and ascending into broken cumulus, but only one merlin and one Am. kestrel
passing.  An earlier, mid-morning, visit to Huguenot park found two juv.
female peregrines resting on a large wash flat between a mixed flock of
caspian terns - black skimmers and a hunkered mass of shorebirds. Multiple
osprey foraged over adjoining Ft. George Inlet. Weather is balmy today with
more convection and showers off the ocean resulting in rapid ascent of
diurnal migrants.

Amelia Island, Nassau County:  A large migratory wave of raptors is passing
over NE Florida today.  This follows several days of persistent northerly
winds and light rains grazing the coast or falling over offshore waters.
Skies today are "milky" with a low (400 ft.) ceiling of strata cumulus
racing south with modest northerly winds. Kettles of osprey are passing,
along with peregrines, merlin and bald eagle with most birds likely moving
in or above the ceiling. I suspect this wave will be over the mid-Keys in 48
hours and Curry Hammock should have a big day then.

Today, 9/24, David Hartgrove, Eli Shaperow, Stacey Bell and I were conducting a 
shorebird survey in Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia Co., when we found juvenile 
Parasitic Jaeger in the Inlet. There was also a Gull-billed Tern on 
Disappearing Island with hundreds of other gulls and terns. 


There were several gull species including, hundreds of Laughing Gulls, 3 Great 
Black-backed Gulls, 8 Herring Gulls, and 4 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Other 
interesting birds included 6 American Oystercatchers, 40+ Wilson's Plovers, 5 
Piping Plovers, and one Peregrine Falcon. 


On Saturday, 9/20, I found a light morph Short-tailed Hawk in Central Park, 
Ormond Beach, FL. I also found a nice assortment of warblers including a female 
Wilson's Warbler as well as Blackburnian Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Cape May 
Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Northern Parula, Yellow-throated Warbler, 
Common Yellowthroat, and American Redstart. There were dozens of birds in a 
very small area, however, they were only present for a short time in the rain. 
As soon as the rain stopped, the birds all left.

Hi all,

 

               Reports from Ft. Morgan and Dauphin Is. also indicated meager
results from this front. However, an experienced birder had what she
described as a Great Day at Blakely Historic State Park which is about 10 or
15 miles northeast of Mobile and Greg Jackson's visit to Rufner Mtn in
Birmingham produced good birding .This would fit with a movement more E to W
than N to S, correlating with upper level winds. But then, as Jim Stevenson
has pointed out, analyzing what happened is speculative. All we can do is
try an educated guess as to what transpired. Well, for the next few days I
won't be engaging in that exercise because not much should happen on the
birding front. But then, that's speculative!

In response to Bob’s post, my sense from 750 miles away, but where the front 
also hit last evening, not a lot of birds left their homes. I was surprised 
when only dribs and drabs showed up, and winds were coming from a direction 
that should have provided a good show. The truth is, we don’t always know the 
minds of birds, and how they respond to various abiotic factors of which we may 
be unaware. With no disrespect intended toward Bob, as I have known this about 
myself for many years (my master’s work was in bird migration 40 years ago), 
even our after-the-fact explanations can be flawed, because we have no way of 
testing these explanations. But science marches on, and we continue to struggle 
for answers, with progress painfully slow. And I am thankfully confident that 
nobody quit their job to go to St. George today. 


Bob said:

 Dr. Sidney Gauthreaux’s radar studies at Clemson U. have shown that birds 
tend to “go with the flow” and will migrate when winds are advantageous, 
that is, tail winds going in the general direction of their intended 
destination. So if birds were aloft, I should think they were headed to LA – 
TX last night. But that’s a guess. 

JS- As I said, we got no such push here, as I suspect comparatively few left. I 
have always disagreed with Dr. Sidney G (of Clemson) about a few things, with 
one o f them being the belief that migrants sometimes fight wind direction, 
especially in late spring, with raging hormones. [Maybe there’s something 
about Clemson and fumbling?] 


 The high pressure system that is bringing us this great weather will persist 
for several days with easterly winds and very likely poor birding. Hopefully, I 
am wrong. 


JS- We love east winds in Texas, as they often steer birds to our doorstep. 
Florida and Texas are opposites in many ways, and in others, carbon copies, 
like with circum-Gulf migration. Jim, Galveston

Hi all,

 

               Well, the birds did not materialize, at least in the numbers
we expected based on the strength of the front, a classic. Last night and
early this a.m. at our migrant trap home in Gulf Breeze we listened for
migrants but heard nothing. We joined the Callaways who had gotten to Ft. P.
earlier. They had some birds moving non-stop down the island early on.
Western Palm warblers had arrived in good numbers but otherwise is was slim
pickings. I was really perplexed that it was not "good" at Ft. Pickens,
based on experiencing many years of similar weather patterns that brought
excellent birding. So when I got home I checked the upper level winds which
were posted this morning and found that during the night, winds which were N
& NE in the SE US at 7 pm last night, had veered during the night to NE to
E. That would explain why birds were not hitting the coast. Although they
should have been aloft, and at least one radar site showed that, they would
have been moving more or less more parallel to the coast.

 

               Dr. Sidney Gauthreaux's radar studies at Clemson U. have
shown that birds tend to "go with the flow" and will migrate when winds are
advantageous, that is, tail winds going in the general direction of their
intended destination. So if birds were aloft, I should think they were
headed to LA - TX last night. But that's a guess.

 

               The high pressure system that is bringing us this great
weather will persist for several days with easterly winds and very likely
poor birding. Hopefully, I am wrong.

 

Happy Birding,

 

Bob Duncan

Ft. Clinch, Amelia Island:  Dawn brought the predicted NE winds and more
rain than anticipated through noon today.  Despite the gloom and drizzle
numerous osprey were aloft over the river and inlet attracting the attention
of several bald eagles.  Only a  handful of peregrine and merlin were active
with several of the former very high aloft sailing into the headwinds
through the scud clouds. Amongst the mixed-species  larids roosting at the
foot of the jetty was a banded Caspian tern b[AEJ] that was first resighted
four years previously on Big Bird Island in Nassau Sound. Later, numerous
osprey and an adult and juvenile peregrine were perched in snags in the
Egan's Creek marsh vicinity of the N. 14th street bridge. Nothing of
interest to report for the Bailey Rd. soccer fields. Dozens of Bobolink
flushing from the city airport's fields while the maintenance mower
systematically leveled the standing forage and covert.

Good morning-

 

A late post from Saturday (20 Sep):

Four of us (Cheryl Libera, Mauri and Mark Dietrich) birded J.B. Starkey
Wilderness Park in Pasco Co. on Saturday. The reason for the reporting delay
was to confirm the previously documented presence of a species. Among the
three Bachman's Sparrows seen was a buff-breasted, reddish-brown plumaged
bird that we have identified as belonging to the northern illinoensis subsp.
We watched the bird singing on a low branch (5 feet from the ground) within
15 feet. The bird politely turned several times giving us a clear view of
its plumage. We were able to compare the bird to two other Bachman's at
different locations. The other two birds were the expected Florida subsp.
(aestivalis) appearing darker and lacking the well-defined delineation of
buff breast and creamy belly as seen in the illinoensis. This is by no means
the first record of the spp. In Florida but as a rare migrant was worth
noting.

 

Other spp. seen included Canada Warbler, Northern Parula, Common
Yellowthroat, Pine Warbler, Indigo Bunting, and Brown-headed Nuthatch
(common).

Lee Snyder

Hi all,

               

 Upper level winds have been posted for tonight and remain favorable for 
movements south, 2600 to 5000 ft, N to NE but not as strong as I would prefer, 
only 10 to 15 mph in the SE US. I should think this would be enough impetus for 
a movement, especially as it’s about mid-season for warblers to move out. 
Surface coastal winds remain moderate to fresh. Great for birders in the 
morning.

From: Jim Stevenson <galornsoc AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:05:59 -0500
In response to Bob’s excellent post, let me add a coupla things. 

First, the first real cool front of the fall is the best day of the fall for 
birding, and sometimes for the entire year. In the old days, when I did my 
graduate work on SGI, I had literally hundreds of some species, in the 70s. 


Second, it’s a great opportunity to observe circum-Gulf migrants alongside 
trans-Gulf species. Many swallows and other birds like Palm Warblers and 
flickers will be flying all morning east along the Coast, following the shores 
to the southern tip of Florida and beyond. They are the conspicuous birds. 
[Authors of old, like my dad, used to call them “Peninsular migrants,” for 
obvious reasons, until we realized they were flying *around* the Gulf on both 
sides.] 


Third, some species not normally seen on our Coast, may turn up on these days, 
whether it’s because there are more birds, or the west winds that often 
precede the front displaces them to the east. As an example, my only Mourning 
Warbler in Florida was on a fall cool front many years ago. 


Fourth, you can’t beat the cooler, drier air, after what seems like eons of 
muggy, stuffy, blistering, birdless air from late May well into September. 
You’ll feel young again, which for some of us, is very welcomed! :0 



So, quit your job, leave your post, grab your binoculars and be at the Coast at 
dawn tomorrow! I’d give anything to be there!

Hi all,


 The first strong front of the season is expected tonight, with surface winds 
moderate N early tonight increasing to fresh NE during the night. Upper level 
winds are favorable (2600 ft) as well, NW in the New England area this morning 
and NE south of that around 20 - 30 mph. That should be a good impetus for lots 
of birds to move south. No rain is expected along the front (low odds) so most 
birds will be moving over the Northern Gulf Coast non-stop, but in large 
movements, some always put down. 



 The front is expected to go stationary in the northern Gulf with fresh E & NE 
winds persisting through Friday, so birds will be on the move the next few 
days, but usually the main pulse is right behind the front. So my bet is that 
tomorrow should be good at the migrant traps from St. George Is. to the MS 
coast. This all depends, of course, on the accuracy of the Marine Forecast. 
Since weather stations sample the upper atmosphere twice a day, around 7 am & 7 
pm, if anything should change, I will post it tonight. 



 So far, it has been a lackluster migration, with fewer birds than usual at Ft 
Pickens and our yard for this time of year. Let’s hope it changes tonight.

Carolina Wren (5)
Northern Cardinals (lots)
Yellow-throated Warbler (3)

There were fewer birds at Turkey Creek than I expected after the heavy rains 
yesterday but enough to keep me interested for over four hours this morning. 
The Golden-Winged Warbler was seen in a mixed flock at 10:30 AM just to the 
West of the boardwalk that follows the Creek, between the walk and the power 
line where the area drains under the walk. The majority of the sightings were 
between the path and creek from McKinnon's Way toward the South pumphouse. The 
Veery and Summer Tanager were in the Mature Hammock south and east of the North 
pumphouse.

Ft. Clinch State Park, Amelia Island: Like clockwork, a coastal nor'easter
ushers-in the autumnal equinox with gusty onshore winds and passing rain
squalls. Such annual conditions typically bring the first sightings of
tundrius peregrines along the coast and a juvenile male made a brief
appearance at the park's pier this morning.  Tracing the path of countless
falcons passing in prior seasons, the young male appeared near the base of
the pier, skipped over the jetty rocks, passed through a flushed confetti of
resting larids and quickly pushed out to sea using the brisk headwinds to
ascend into the scudding clouds seeking hapless passerines seeking landfall
after their nocturnal flights.  One falcon does not make a season, but it
does signal the slow transformation from summer's oppressive heat to fall's
changeable weather and a procession of migrants along the coast.  Multiple
osprey were active across the broad inlet and an eagle and osprey were
observed in a ritualistic chase over far distant Cumberland Island. 

 

Upon my return from the park and between passing squalls, I entered
Fernandina's south Greenway and found another or the same juvenile peregrine
resting in a cedar snag within the marsh. Just inland from the beach, the
Greenway's many snags serve as rest stops for numerous raptors during fall's
migration. In past seasons, multiple peregrines, merlin, eagles and ospreys
have sought refuge there as inclement weather stopped or slowed their
passage. Should the winds and rains persist, this morning's lone peregrine
will be followed by a surge of birds compelled to skirt the coast as they
push south.

Hey everyone,

I had a fun afternoon at Leu Gardens. I arrived at about 1:15 and I was almost 
chased away early by the rain, but I stuck it out and ended up having a great 
walk. The weather was pleasantly cool, overcast, and refreshingly breezy by the 
lake with only occasional sprinkles. I was there until after 4:30 and I managed 
to find some decent birds, including eight species of warblers - but no 
redstarts for some reason! Here's the list: 


Wood Duck
Wood Stork
Double-Crested Cormorant
Anhinga
Great Egret
Osprey
Red-Tailed Hawk
Mourning Dove
Barred Owl (1)
Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (at least 4)
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Great Crested Flycatcher (1 - late according to eBird!)
White-Eyed Vireo (1)
Red-Eyed Vireo (a baker's dozen or so)
Blue Jay
American Crow
Tufted Titmouse
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Veery (1)
Gray Catbird (1 - may be my earliest FOF in Florida! I was surprised to find 
it!) 

Brown Thrasher
Northern Mockingbird
Ovenbird (1)
Worm-Eating Warbler (1)
Black-and-White Warbler (1)
Northern Parula (5)
Blackburnian Warbler (2 - 1 immature bird; 1 good-looking, orange-faced male)
Black-Throated Blue Warbler (1 female)
Yellow-Throated Warbler (2)
Prairie Warbler (3)
Northern Cardinal
Common Grackle
Boat-Tailed Grackle
House Finch

Leu Gardens is located near the intersection of US-17/92 (Mills Ave.) and 
Virginia Ave. in northern downtown Orlando, north-central Orange County. 


Good birding,

Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:45:16 -0500
Hey everyone,

Today as I was leading a birding tour on Disney property in northern Osceola 
County (no public access), I found at least eight Blackburnian Warblers split 
among two widely-separated mixed foraging flocks. The first flock had at least 
three and the second at least five. Two of the birds we saw were adult males; 
the others were a variety of sexes and ages. I just thought it was noteworthy, 
as I've never seen more than one in any inland location here in Central Florida 
at any given time. I was delighted to find the first one, let alone EIGHT! 
Other migrants and possibly breeding migrants included an Acadian Flycatcher, 
Yellow-Throated and Red-Eyed Vireos, a Black-and-White Warbler, an adult male 
American Redstart, a couple of Northern Parulas and a Yellow-Throated Warbler. 
Seriously, it's not everyday in the Orlando area where the Blackburnians 
outnumber the Parulas! :) 


I'm curious to see what others have found around the state today. Again, the 
area where I found the birds today is off-limits to the general public, but 
basically it's a natural area near Celebration in northern Osceola County. 


Good birding,

Hey y'all,

 

Took a fortuitous break moments ago and found a CACH foraging at my feeder
with a Tufted Titmouse. The CACH is unusual here in s. Pinellas and the
first time recorded in my yard. Also in the yard were Yellow-throated
Warbler and Prairie Warbler. The CACH brings the yard life list to 138!

 

Regards,
Lee

Hi all,

on Monday, September 7, 2014 during late morning I stopped at the small beach 
by the Courtney Campbell Causeway. The small beach is closed to vehicles I did 
park across the street. On the opposite side of the road there is a small 
parking space which I park there and then proceeded with caution across the 
road. On the small beach there was a bazillion of shorebirds, several terns & 
gulls.

"This just came across a couple of listservs from Scott Weidensaul:

"I'm sorry to have to share the news that Bob Sargent passed away last
night, at home with Martha and their family in Trussville, AL. The
complications from his post-operative infection became increasingly serious
last week, and it's been clear for several days that the end was close. But
it's still a tough, tough loss.

There will be a celebration of life rather than a funeral in the coming
weeks, and the family will let Bob's many friends and colleagues know when
that will be as soon as the arrangements are made. If you'd like to let
Martha know she's in your thoughts, the address is: 7570 Mack Hicks Rd.,
Trussville AL 35173.

Bob touched an awful lot of people, including me, who feel this loss keenly
as a teacher, colleague and friend. Few people have been as tireless in
promoting the study and appreciation of hummingbirds as Bob, or fought
through as many hardships and tragedies in a long and eventful life. I find
it hard to believe he's gone. As I told Martha's daughter Donna this
morning, I'd like to think that somewhere, Bob's banding his first Bogota
Sunangel about now.

Subject: American Golden-Plovers. Wilson's Phalarope. Flagler Co.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Sun, 7 Sep 2014 22:40:08 -0400
Late this afternoon, 9/7, I drove out to some agricultural and sod fields in 
Flagler County. I found 4 American Golden-Plovers together in one field. This 
field was a cultivated field with almost no vegetation on it that was very wet 
and partially flooded from the heavy rains we have had for the last couple of 
days. There were many shorebirds on this field, including dozens of Killdeer, a 
few Semipalmated Plovers, at least twenty Black-bellied Plovers, many Greater 
and Lesser Yellowlegs, lots of Least Sandpipers, one Semipalmated Sandpiper, 
several Pectoral Sandpipers, one White-rumped Sandpiper, and one Wilson's 
Phalarope was spinning in a flooded pool. 


Three of the American Golden-Plovers were nearly in complete alternate plumage 
still with lots of black even on the under tail coverts. One bird had molted 
into largely basic plumage. Be aware that there are many Black-bellied Plovers 
in this field when trying to find these birds. This field requires a scope. I 
have included one very very distant and poor digiscoped photo. 


This field is located on Rt 305 about 1/2 mile south of the intersection with 
rt 304 on the east side of rt 305. Note that there is a bridge out on rt 305 
between rt 100 and this field. You cannot take rt 305 off rt 100 to get here 
now. Therefore, you have to access this location from Rt 11 or from rt 17. From 
Rt 11 take rt 304 until it dead ends at rt 305. Turn south (left) on rt 305. 
The field will be on your left in about 1/4 mile. It is the field just north of 
the large sod field.

Subject: Bobolinks Fern. Airfield
From: Patrick Leary <PRLeary AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Sun, 7 Sep 2014 12:26:39 -0400
Fernandina Beach airfield:  Ca noon today, thousands of Bobolink
stopped-over at the island's airfield under gloomy skies and light rain.
Three factors combined to concentrate the migrants in the area: low ceilings
and rain throughout the region, peak migratory period for the species and
un-mowed grasses providing forage. I visited the airfield on a whim to
search for grounded shorebirds and noted small flocks of passerines rising
into the distant sky and moving south across the airfield. Shortly
thereafter, I noticed more flocks rising and settling in the un-mowed
fields. I soon learned that my attention on the Bobolink was shared by a
Cooper's Hawk that launched a gliding attack into the milling flocks,
whereupon, concealed masses erupted from the fields and skied up over the
runways before turning south to continue their migration to South America.  

 

It's been many years since I've seen similar concentrations at the airfield.
More frequent mowing and unfavorable weather likely explains the paucity of
birds most years. Whenever they do linger in the fields, their presence is
often overlooked unless a raptor flushes the foraging birds from their deep
covert. See Flicker link for images of the flocks.

Fernandina Beach, Nassau County. As luck would have it, the dates scheduled for 
the first international shorebird event (Sept.6-7) offer poor tides for this 
region. The roost period tides needed to concentrate birds occur at sunrise and 
sunset. Given this circumstance, I visited one regional roost late yesterday 
and recorded the data below. Had the roost period fallen at midday, several 
more species would likely have been present at this site. As it were, I 
recorded a record high count of Short-billed Dowitchers and good nos. of 
Black-bellied plovers. Most of the birds perched in belly deep waters during 
the highest tide period.

Waste Water Treatment Ponds on Grove Road in Hernando County. They were 
frequently doing their characteristic spins as they plucked food from 
the surface. In addition there were many of both Yellowlegs, 4 
Black-necked Stilts, 2 Dowitchers, etc.

Brookridge Waste Water Treatment Ponds (Grove Rd.) Grove Road runs north 
from SR-50, one block west of the Suncoast Parkway. The sewage treatment 
plant is 1 mile north of SR-50, on the west side of the road. Please 
view the birds from the fence--don't try to enter the plant.

A solitary Caspian Tern over the artificial lake at the Stick Marsh by 
Fellsmere. Size, bill and tail shape nailed it. Not unprecedented, but unusual 
for this time of year, I think.

Around 5:15 yesterday afternoon I found at
least four Black Terns foraging over Ocean
Pond in sw Baker County. This is the second
time I've seen the species here. The first was
on a total of six days over about a week and
a half in August of 2011. At that time there
were a large number of Black and Common
Terns that I presumed had been blown in by
hurricane Irene. This time there wasn't any
weather event associated with this observation.

Hello all,

My dad and I drove Biolab Rd this morning. We saw a Wilson's Phalarope just
south of the 90 degree turn where the Ruff was found in May. My GPS wasn't
working well but I think it was about here: 28°40'26.9"N 80°41'19.9"W  It
was was with a large group of shorebirds including dowitchers, yellowlegs,
stilt sandpipers, black bellied plovers and lots of peeps.

We checked Blackpoint Dr first, but we didn't find one there.

Happy birding,

Scott Simmons

Although not rare both Semipalmated and Western Sandpiper juveniles were 
observed Thursday. 

Sorry for late post as I thought,incorrectly, they would be on the Ebird rare 
bird alert as they are a little early.

This will be my last update on Bob thanks to Lucy Duncan's note to me.

I am sure notes and cards would be appreciated.

"Murray,


Here's the latest, straight from Martha in an email last night:

"He came home from the hospital on Tuesday, the 26th, and is now in hospice 
care. His surgeon told him that the surgery he was supposed to have would not 
improve his quality of life and that if he did it he may be in a nursing home 
for the rest of his days. He elected not to have the surgery and decided on 
coming home for however long he lives. Bob is now blind in one eye with little 
vision in the other eye due to an infection. He is at peace with the decision. 
And a lot happier here at home". 


Their address is 7570 Mack Hicks Rd, Trussville, AL 35173 .


Lucy Duncan"

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>

Yesterday, 8/25, we had strong NE winds at 20-25 knots along the Volusia County 
coastline. After work last night, I stopped off at Ormond-by-the-Sea to look 
for any birds blown in by the winds. I looked for about an hour and saw dozens 
of Black Terns, but little else of note. There were 4 early 1st cycle Herring 
Gulls that flew by in the winds. Finally, as I was about to give up I found a 
dark morph jaeger flying by fast, far offshore. From the shape it looked like a 
possible juvenile dark morph Long-tailed Jaeger. Not long after that, a lone 
Sooty Shearwater zipped by. There was no other sign of pelagic species blown in 
by the winds.

Lt. Talbot Island, Duval Co.  Amongst an assortment of roosting shorebirds
on the island's inlet shore were a single juvenile red knot and several
juvenile semipalmated plovers. Later, at the Bailey Rd. soccer fields on
Amelia Island, I found a flock of ca 100 least sandpipers (incl. juveniles)
and a few semipalmated sandpipers foraging cut worms. A single pectoral
sandpiper was amongst some killdeer. No buff-breasted sandpiper or Am.
golden plover were present. Species and nos. would be much higher with
coastal showers and gales at this season.

Hey everyone,

I hit Leu Gardens again this morning. I arrived around 10:30 and I stayed about 
three hours. There was nothing incredible, but there were a few warblers 
around, and I re-found the two chickadees. The day's list is as follows:' 


Double-Crested Cormorant
Anhinga
Great Blue Heron
Great Egret
Green Heron
Black Vulture
Turkey Vulture
Osprey
Cooper's Hawk (2 - one adult and one immature)
Mourning Dove
Barred Owl (2 or 3)
Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (1)
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Pileated Woodpecker
Eastern Wood-Pewee (1)
Acadian Flycatcher (1 - chasing the wood-pewee at one point!)
Great Crested Flycatcher (1)
Red-Eyed Vireo (12)
Blue Jay
Fish Crow
Carolina Chickadee (2 - today on the north-south asphalt trail beginning at the 
gate on Nebraska Street) 

Tufted Titmouse
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Northern Mockingbird
Worm-Eating Warbler (1)
Black-and-White Warbler (3)
Hooded Warbler (1 female)
American Redstart (2 females)
Northern Parula (5)
Yellow-Throated Warbler (3)
Northern Cardinal

Today was one of the few Leu Gardens visits where I haven't found a single 
Brown Thrasher. 


Leu Gardens is located near the intersection of US-17/92 (Mills Ave.) and 
Virginia Ave. in northern downtown Orlando, north-central Orange County. 


Good birding,

Hi all, 
•
I finally got Flickr up and running. I had tried late last spring to renew my 
subscription as they didn’t take my payment at the time. 

•
I birded CCC on the morning of August 20th. There is a lot of construction 
going on in the area of the small beach. The Parking area was barricaded as I 
had to park on the opposite side of the road and walked across Courtney 
Campbell. This made it almost dangerous to cross Courtney Campbell 

•
There were lots of shorebirds on the beach. This includes the following list of 
species that I took photos of: 

• 
Yellow crowned night Heron, Semipalmated Plover, Willet, Sanderling, Least 
Sandpiper, Western Sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Short billed Dowitcher, Laughing 
Gull, black Tern, Royal Tern, Common Tern & Forster’s Tern
