This morning I was conducting a shorebird survey in Ponce de Leon Inlet with 
Jennifer Winters, Becki O'Keefe, Amber Bridges, Eli Schaperow and Ken Hunter 
when we found three white morph Snow Geese on Disappearing Island. There were 
two adults and one juvenile bird. We also had a flock of 40+ Black Scoters fly 
across the mouth of the Inlet. Later, we also had a male Magnificent 
Frigatebird fly over. Early this morning I also had 6 female Black Scoters 
floating in the Inlet and two Purple Sandpipers on the north jetty.

Today, 11/22, at lunch I stopped off at the beach at Daytona Beach Shores and 
found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull. The bird was just north of the Van Avenue 
approach to the beach. Another oddity for the beach was a Killdeer foraging in 
the surf.

This afternoon, 11/19, I found a Red-throated Loon on the open water of the 
Tomoka Basin, Tomoka State Park, Ormond Beach. The bird was far out, but quite 
recognizable with a scope. There were also 82 Black Scoters, including 6 males, 
and one female plumaged Surf Scoter. The RT Loon was so far out I could only 
get very distant photos.

Notes: Many Catbirds until now (11//17/16). RCKI are common as they are every 
winter. EAPH are also common this season. More YBSS than I have ever seen here. 
AMRO every day since first seen. SSHA I rarely see. Blooming gall berries so 
early but probably easy to miss. They were in full sun. 

  
The birds need us now more than ever. 
Good and lucky birding to all.

This morning, 11/15, I found four Purple Sandpipers on the rocks of the north 
jetty at Ponce de Leon Inlet. As I mentioned yesterday, they are easiest to 
find at high tide. At high tide, all of their foraging areas are covered up and 
they gather on the rocks with the Ruddy Turnstones in small groups. At lower 
tides, the birds can disperse anywhere along the jetty and can be more 
difficult to locate.

This morning before work, 11/11, I found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull on the 
beach about 1/4 mile north of the north jetty at Ponce de Leon Inlet. On a 
Franklin's Gull the tail band does not extend to the outer tail feather, unlike 
in a Laughing Gull. There were also 41 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. With the 
LBBGs was one adult bird that appeared to be a hybrid Lesser Black-backed x 
Herring Gull. The mantle color was darker than Herring Gull, but much lighter 
than the nearby Lesser Black-backed Gulls. The legs were pale yellow with pale 
pink webbing in the toes. The pattern of the outer primaries of P5, P6, and P7 
were more Herring-like than LBBG.

The winds laid down finally to check the Sharptails in Shiloh. The water has 
started going down now. The grasses are thick under the water, and you have to 
be careful of falling which I did today. The Sparrows were extremely shy, and 
running mostly under the grasses making it difficult to see them. I saw around 
7 Saltmarsh, and no Nelson's. Also saw a few Marsh Wrens. The dirt road coming 
in had Swamp Sparrows, and Common Yellowthroats. It was pretty birdy, but I had 
to go, and couldn't bird it.

This evening, 11/2, I stopped off at the beach in Ponce Inlet, Volusia County 
and found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull. The bird was on the beach with a group 
of gulls and terns about 1/4 mile north of the north jetty.

Today, 10/24, I found an adult American Golden-Plover on Disappearing Island in 
Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia Co. On Saturday, I was surprised to find a small 
group of late Pectoral Sandpipers at the Mud Bog in Flagler Co. Another oddity 
was an out-of-place Marsh Wren foraging on the north jetty at Ponce de Leon

Hi Everyone, Sorry for this late report on Shiloh this year. The Sharptails 
normally get here around October 3rd. I was unable to go out there due high 
winds, rain, and hurricane. The Shiloh marsh water level is very high. I have 
never seen it this high. The water all over the marsh where the sparrows 
normally are is up to my knees. Sharptail habitat is under water. However (I 
don't know how) I managed to find 4 Saltmarsh Sparrows. It is really hard for 
me to walk that marsh making it difficult to do a thorough search. Falling down 
seems to come naturally now, so as usual I came home soak and wet. Wildlife has 
done a great job on the road to the barricade!

Subject: more hurricane birding
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 7 Oct 2016 20:54:45 -0400
As in just now. About 45 minutes ago I ventured out
onto one of the docks to turn on the bilge pump on a
sailboat. It was dark with very strong wind and light
rain. The moon was peeking through the clouds as
they hurtled past. Over the river just past the dock I
could hear a couple of dozen Royal Terns and Laughing
Gulls. Since it was going to take a while for the sailboat
to empty I drove down to my boat. At that location, about
3/4 of a mile to the north, there are fewer obstructions to
block the wind and it was much stronger. My boat was fine
but I walked out to the end of the the dock to check the
other boats and almost got blown off the dock. Along the
way the sky lit up several times with blue and green flashes
of transformers blowing out.

When I returned, the gulls and terns were still out over the
water.While they roost on docks along the river during the day
I believe they normally return to the coast at night. Since
that isn't practical tonight they mostly seem to be flying
around over the water here. There are places for them
to roost and I could hear some gulls on the concrete
roof over the big yachts at Lamb's next door but I don't
know if the terns are setting down there. The news reports
say there has been heavy erosion along the beach. Given
the extent to which the dunes have been receding over the
past ten or so years I think it's possible that Huguenot park
may not be there in the morning. A friend who knows the
guy who runs the park said the whole place was under water
this morning.

In other news, the past few nights have had pretty heavy
migration over this area including a couple of Dickcissels
(distinctive nocturnal flight call). I also thought there may
have been a good number of sparrows. Got to go, power
went out briefly but will probably go for good.

It's pretty much the height of the storm in Jacksonville
and there are still birds to be seen. Laughing Gulls and
Royal Terns are actively coursing over the Ortega River
searching for food. There are a few cormorants as well.
They are also seen flying from the west towards the river.
Most surprising are the occasional Rock Pigeons. Checking
on my boat a few minutes ago there was an Osprey hunting
between the marinas. The peak of the storm surge at this
location is right now. The water is very high but not over the
seawalls. While there has been a strong, continuous wind
and constant moderate to heavy rain it hasn't been too bad
but this is about twenty five miles from the coast.

Lt. Talbot Island State Park, Duval Co.  Onshore winds and early AM rain
squalls combined to push nos. of migrant peregrines onto the shore this
morning. Immediately after accessing the beach, we sighted two juv. females
perched on the strand with one feeding on a large kill. For the next hour,
we observed many peregrines; feeding, resting, cruising low along the dunes,
stooping sanderling over the surf, feeding on the wind while kiting high
aloft, stooping inland toward unknown prey or passing high aloft. This week
marks the peak of PEFA migration along the coast and the near-miss passage
of hurricane Mathew should create ideal conditions to compel high nos. of
PEFA to hug the coast as they stream south. See Flickr link for images
collected this morning. Only one PEFA was photographed during a brief period
of sunlight, all the rest shot in gloomy, overcast, conditions. Note bulging
crops of well fed falcons and large prey in feet of adult photographed high
aloft over the beach.

Pelagic Trip Report
25 September 2016
62 brave souls arrived at 2:30 a.m.  to board the Pastime Princess for
another Marine Science Center pelagic trip. The sea conditions were very
gentle on this trip and we had a beautiful night heading offshore. First
light found us on the edge of the Gulf Stream 40 miles offshore. We soon
began to find small number so Cory’s Shearwaters and a few Sooty
Terns. We were surprised to find two migrating Little Blue Herons so far
offshore. An approaching storm caused the birds to be moving around the
storm edge and we found 3 Black-capped Petrels, over 20 Cory’s
Shearwaters, 2 Magnificent Frigatebirds, some Audubon’s Shearwaters
and Sooty Terns and 3 jaegers. The jaegers later appeared closer to us
with 2 Parasitic Jaegers and the smaller of the birds turned out to be a
dark morph Long-tailed Jaeger. We even had a lone Black-and-white
Warbler fly past. We worked our way back closer to shore and found some
large groups of Cory’s Shearwaters, Audubon’s Shearwaters and a
Brown Booby. Perhaps as many as 10% of the Cory’s Shearwaters were
Scopoli’s Shearwater - the subspecies that breeds in the
Mediterranean.  We had some long periods with very few birds, but this
was punctuated by some wonderful encounters with Atlantic Spotted
Dolphins that surrounded the boat. Closer to shore, we met some groups
of Black and Common Terns, more Sooty Shearwaters and a single juvenile
Bridled Tern. The best bird of the trip appeared just a few miles
offshore, when a Sabine’s Gull zipped by. Unfortunately, not many
people were able to get on the bird. A bonus at the end of the trip was
another juvenile Brown Booby on the rocks on the north jetty of Ponce de
Leon Inlet as we came in to port.

This afternoon after work, 9/16, I stopped off at Ormond-by-the-Sea to do a 
short sea watch, because of the strong north winds along the coast. I quickly 
found multiple flocks of Red-necked Phalaropes moving south. Some groups even 
wheeled around and sat on the ocean out beyond the breakers. I found at least 
400+ in about 25 minutes. They were too far out for photos, but I managed a 
few. A scope is needed. I also had one very distant jaeger out at about 1.5 
miles chasing terns.

Amelia Island ca 1970s-80s. Per Bob's comments re nocturnal migration, I
often surf fished with a now deceased uncle on the south tip of Amelia
Island. In fall, it was common to hear the flight calls of neotropical
migrants as they passed over the shoreline and headed south over Nassau
Sound in the dark hours. RE diurnal migration, I can recall large flights of
Sharp-shinned Hawks following major cold fronts. Typically, these involved
hawks approaching the coast from the SE and making landfall on Amelia's
south end in early morning - apparently carried out over the ocean by the
strong NW winds following a front. Given the major decline of SSHA, such
events are now reduced to memory, as are day-long flights of Am. Kestrels
down the spine of Amelia Island in late September thru early October. All of
this occurring in just six decades of observation.

Subject: TS Julia in Jacksonville
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 14 Sep 2016 18:21:48 -0400
Last night there was a major movement of migrants through
Jacksonville during the "storm." I have been hearing migrants
flying over at night since August 1st. Usually, there are between
one ans several. Last night there were hundreds. I first noticed
them around 11:30. It had been raining off and on with a very light
breeze since early afternoon. Mostly the rain was pretty light. By
11 pm or so it was a kind of misty rain. Hundreds of birds were moving
steadily through this. When I walked the dog down the street I could
hear the birds over the whole area. This lasted for about two
hours. At that point, there were brief periods of heavy rain and
occasional strong gusts of wind. Around 11:00 this morning
there were more birds moving through quite low but I only
found one apparently exhausted Common Yellowthroat at
work.

To put this in context, I once had an extended argument (via
email) with Noel Wamer on this subject. Yes, you can hear
migrating passerines flying over at night. Many migrants fly
at higher altitudes around 3000 feet but some fly lower. In urban
and suburban areas there is usually too much ambient noise to
hear the birds calling. I do live in a high ambient noise area but
the birds are much easier to hear over water, in this case, the
Ortega River. I can't usually identify the calls but in the past
couple of weeks I have heard two Swainson's Thrushes and
a Scarlet Tanager. You can Google migratory flight calls and
find a number of website's with recordings of these specific
types of calls. Xeno-Canto is the best resource for song and
call recordings. Most files specify the type of call (alarm call,
singing male etc) so you can look for flight call.

I witnessed the same phenomenon at Davis Park (St Johns County Nocatee) this 
morning while leading a field trip. Birds were literally falling out of the 
skies as the low clouds seemed to force them down at approximately 7:15 am. It 
was impossible to clearly identify them as I thought most of them were thrush 
sp. and few of them actually landed close by. They were coming in at least 10 
at a time for a 45 minute period and then gradually in smaller numbers for 
about 2 hours. 



There were at least three groups of Eastern Kingbirds with a total of around 60 
birds. It was a unique opportunity to witness migration at one of it's finer 
moments. Walking the Nocatee trails produced Prairie, Worm-eating, Northern 
Parula, American Redstart, Black & White and Pine Warblers. None of the birds 
were abundant and we turned back due to rain and biting insects. 



The Buff-breasted Sandpiper was still present on the Davis Park athletic 
fields, as well as a few Least Sandpipers today. The Osteen Girls Ball Field is 
quite flooded and that's where the wading birds have been hanging out. 




TS Julia moved coastally through St Augustine with moderate winds and rain. By 
around midnight most of the storm was moving north. I didn't witness coastal 
damage but have not been out to assess the tidal damage to the beachfront 
properties.

Amelia Island: The fast passage of TS Julia was essentially a non-event in
NE Florida. Virtually all the rain fell offshore of the coastline and winds
were unsubstantial. Despite these circumstances, we witnessed a steady
stream of neotropical warblers across our, marsh-front, yard early this
morning. The birds passed quickly into a modest headwind beneath overcast
skies. Noted were: Cape May, Prairie, C. Yellowthroat, Black and White,
Black-throated Blue and nos. of Am. Redstart. Many simply passed low as dark
bullets. 

 

Midmorning, we visited Spoonbill Pond on Big Talbot Island and found two
Black Tern in basic plumage patrolling the pond and (initially) three
Red-necked Phalarope that became just one probing and spinning the shallows.
A short hike on Lt. Talbot's south beach produced nine Piping plover,
including a NJ bird but little else. 

 

This season has witnessed the passage of two TS across north Florida, but
neither has produced any amount of rain or wind in the NE corner of the
state!

Today, 9/13, we had 40+ knot winds and driving rain from the tropical 
disturbance just offshore. I went out during a lull in the storm and found a 
juvenile Brown Booby at the mouth of Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia Co. There 
were also 25+ Black Terns, 30 Common Terns, 100 Royal Terns, 15 Sandwich Terns, 
5 Least Terns, 1 Forster's Tern, and 2 Caspian Terns. 


Yesterday, 9/12, I walked up the observation tower at the Marine Science Center 
and found 61 Common Nighthawks migrating high overhead.

For the past 2 days I have been looking for shore birds on the Refuge. Since 
the rain Gator Creek, and Peacock's Pocket have lost shore bird habitat. The 
water levels are high. However on the Bio Lab Road I have picked up some shore 
birds mainly near the beach end of the road. I also have seen the Yellow 
Warblers and the Prairie Warblers in the mangroves along the sides of Peacock's 
Pocket and the Bio Lab Road roads. I found one Wilson's Phalarope on Bio Lab 
Road, and 2 at Vista 3 on the beach road. I've seen Western Sandpipers, 
Semipalmated Sandpipers, Stilt Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, Rudy Turnstones, 
Semipalmated Plovers, Black-bellied Plovers, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, and 
Western and regular Willets. I probably saw other species of shore birds, but 
nothing out of the ordinary. Does anyone know of any Buff-breasted Sandpipers 
being seen? Sure would like to find some. There is a Yellow-crowned Night Heron 
on Gator Creek Road. It has been there for a while, and I'm sure many have seen 
it. I observed it feeding on small crabs. They are not fiddler crabs, but 
appear to be small stone crabs. If you look at the picture of it with this 
email, I'd appreciate any comment on the species of crab it is. One other 
thing.... the Bio Lab Road needs the switch grasses cut on the lagoon side of 
the road. It is obstructing the view of the shore, and there are only a few 
areas where you can see the shore. I was informed that they are going to cut 
the grasses soon. It sure is nice out there.

Cumberland Island, GA:  ca noon today, an adult peregrine passed over a
marsh flat flushing several hundred roosting shorebirds. We were there
surveying and counting shorebirds for the international project. Prior to
and following our surveys of Cumberland, we visited two sites near
Fernandina Beach where we found large nos. of shorebirds. Small nos. of
ospreys and at least one juvenile eagle were observed high aloft in
migration. The peregrine is rather "early" but within the migratory schedule
for the tundrius sub species.

I think Judy deserves a lot of credit for taking the time to get a picture
for voucher ID of the Dickcissel. It doesn't matter how good it is. 

I might add that digital pictures have gps location and date stamped, making
them excellent evidence of the record.

Keep up the good work!

Jim, Galveston

I too had a Dickcissel today in Pinellas County.  I looked at the bird 
with bins and put the camera up to take a picture but couldn't see it.  
But I shot the photo anyway at where I had last seen it and the bird 
turned out to be identifiable.  Definitely a crummy photo though.

Those are some excellent birds for 3 September, especially the Dickcissel.

 

On the Western Gulf, we have virtually zero trans-Gulf migrants this early.
Just a lot of circum-Gulf migrants, following the Coast SW. 

 

Many thanks to Don Morrow, who will be counting in my place this weekend on
St. George. 

 

Happy holiday weekend to everyone.

Hi all,

 

               Rain wasn't the only thing that fell out of the skies this
a.m. Birds precipitated out as well. Early morning showers (3/4" rain here)
along the coast and in the Gulf caused incoming southbound migrants to put
down in good numbers. Just after dawn we could see migrant passerines flying
all around in my "hood." Reluctant to cross the Gulf under poor flying
conditions, some (how many, who knows?) elected to put down and feed. At the
end of this day Lucy and I had 29 Neotropical passerine migrants including
14 warblers (best Cerulean, Blue-wing, Blackburnian, Chestnut-sided)
Dickcissel and a total of 56 species for the day. At one time we had 6
species of warblers bathing at our small pond at the same time. Not a bad
day and we didn't even start an engine. 

 

               Prospects look good for tomorrow as upper level and surface
winds continue SE or S which should discourage an outbound movement. Ft.
Pickens has apparently reopened from what I could see looking across the
bay. The migrant traps should be good tomorrow, especially if there are
showers in the Gulf or along the coast in early morning.

Spoonbill pond on Big Talbot Island State Park today.  Two very large flocks
of E. Kingbird passing aloft. One ca noon with over one hundred birds and
another ca 4:30 PM of similar size. 120 Blue-wing Teal with 2 N. Shovelers
now feeding in the receding pond waters. Black-neck Stilt nos. way down to a
few birds, but Lesser Yellowlegs increasing along with Least and
Semipalmated Sandpipers. Depending on local tides, very large nos. of
shorebirds can be found during the high tide, roosting, period. Due to the
reduced water levels and depleted forage the high concentrations of American
White Pelicans and wader hordes are now much smaller, but Rosette Spoonbill
continue to gather there and the "homebody" pair of Bald Eagles was present
this afternoon. Hopefully, the approaching tropical storm and its rains will
restore the wetland for seasonal waterfowl.

Yesterday evening (8/29) about 6:00 p.m., I found 4 Buff-breasted Sandpipers

Killdeer on a sod field in Flagler County. The field in off of route 100 about 
8 miles west of Bunnell. From Bunnell, turn left off rt 305 onto CR35. Continue 
about a mile and look at the sod field on the left (east) side of the road. A 
scope is required. Also, off route 305, just past the intersection with route 
304, there is a fallow field on the east side of rt305 that had 18 
Black-bellied Plovers. It should be great habitat for other species with this 
rain.

I should have said, a juvenile white morph would be white, or very pale gray, 
as Danny's photos show. Dotty RobbinsHigh Springs

Hi Danny and all, To clarify (I hope), Reddish Egrets do not have phases like 
Little Blue Heron does. Reddish Egret has 2 morphs, dark or white. They don't 
"phase" into a white morph, like Little Blue Heron does. 

 
 I just checked, and my older Natl Geo field guide uses the misleading word 
"phase" to describe the 2 plumages of Reddish Egret. My newer edition correctly 
uses the word "morph". The word "phase" implies that something will change over 
time. Reddish Egrets don't change from gray to white. 

 
 Additionally, my field guide shows a juvenile dark morph--a gray bird. But it 
doesn't show a juvenile white morph, which, I assume, is white. Glad to hear 
refinement or correction of this from those who know more, thanks.

Thank you all again for being patient with me, and my questions. Of course this 
bird is a Reddish Egret. I received an interesting response. An individual says 
that he has seen hundreds of Reddish Egrets, and photographed dozens of them in 
30 years living in the Florida Keys. He stated that he has never seen anything 
like this bird. He based his response by using the definitive Birds of North 
America. Very interesting response. 


 So.... apparently this is an unusual bird. We do know that it is a Reddish 
Egret in an unusual plumage. [😊]

Since I found the unusual plumage Reddish Egret (for me) I have run across some 
more shots of what I think are Reddish Egret. I took them last year. I assumed 
it was a Reddish Egret phasing into the White Morph form. Now I'm not too sure. 
I've gone online, and into all my bird books, and I can not find the 2 phases 
in question that I have pictures of. Someone also responded to me, and said 
that the Reddish Egret did not nest in my area. I don't believe that is true 
since I have found Reddish Egrets on nest the the northern end of the Banana 
River (no motor zone) on islands off the SRB channel. In these pictures I 
thought that the bird was simply about to turn into the all white form. Now I 
don't know. Appreciate any input. Thank-you

'm sorry for another ID, but can't find it. I thought I knew my peeps, but it 
doesn't appear that I do. This morning I photographed a Least Sandpiper with 
another unknown peep. I don't see how it can be a Semipalmated Sandpiper, but 
maybe it is. that broad dark line through the eye area, and the the long legs 
through me off. It can't be a Western. So anybody know what it is? 

 I'm sorry for the wrong ID on the Red Knot. I've photographed the Baird's 
Sandpiper before. Thought the Red Knot at the time looked like the Baird's. 
Thanks for your help.

I found this egret/heron (?) this morning on the bio lab road. At first I 
thought it was a Little Blue Heron. Then after looking at it I ruled that out. 
The only thing I can think it might be is some form of the Reddish Egret that I 
have never seen. I checked the books, and can't find it anywhere. At least I'm 
not calling it a Baird's Sandpiper .... :) .....

After months of illness I finally got out to do some shore birding. I birded 
the last dirt road to the dyke access before headquarters. (no name road) I 
found what appears to be an adult non breeding Baird's Sandpiper. I've seen 
only one before, and it was a juvenile. I also saw many other shorebirds 
including a Solitary Sandpiper. I worked all the way out Peacocks Pocket Road 
where I found Yellow Warbler and Northern Waterthrush. If I'm wrong in my ID 
I'm sure one of the more experienced birders will correct me on the Baird's. I 
also ran into Phyllis who says she also saw the Barid's this morning. Best 
birding I've had in a while.

Subject: Pelagic trip report out of Ponce de Leon Inlet. Volusia County.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Fri, 29 Jul 2016 16:13:34 -0400
On Sunday, July 24, 2016 our group headed out of Ponce de Leon Inlet at
3:00 a.m. The Gulf Stream was 45 miles offshore and we reached the edge
at about first light. We began to find birds immediately and just from
6:00 – 7:00 a.m. we had 5 Sooty Terns, 2 Audubon’s Shearwaters, 2
Cory’s Shearwater, 1 Bridled Tern and 2 unidentified storm-petrels. As
morning continued, we found more Wilson’s Storm-Petrels, a lost Least
Tern, a small flock of unidentified shorebirds, Leach’s and
Band-rumped Storm Petrels a Least Sandpiper, a Black-and-white Warbler,
and 2 migrating Great Blue Herons. We were able to get excellent looks
at all three storm-petrel species as well as close looks at Cory’s and
Audubon’s Shearwaters. We were also able to successfully release 8
Loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings into a patch of Sargassumweed in the
Gulf Stream. These turtles came from the Marine Science Center’s sea
turtle hospital.

However, the marine mammals stole the show with repeated close
encounters with Short-finned Pilot Whales, Atlantic Spotted Dolphins, a
distant look at what may have been a Pygny Sperm Whale and a few very
small dolphins that may have been young Atlantic Spotted or perhaps
Pantropical Spotted Dolphins. Our way back was topped off with a
beautiful Bridled Tern sitting on a log with a stunning breeding
plumaged Black Tern. We also had two Loggerhead Turtles.

S. Amelia Island, Nassau Co. ca 0800 this morning, an unidentified Booby was
observed flying low over the east end of the Nassau Sound Bridge, then
turning west and flying from view toward Sawpit Creek. A search of the west
side of the sound produced no sightings of the bird. Specimen was observed
briefly at distance when mobbed by gulls but sufficient observation to ID
flight profile and "jizz" as a Booby. Sometime later, I was in the Ft.
George Inlet area but did not see the subject bird there either.

Hi All,

I included one grievous omission in my original post at the beginning of 
this thread, I'll fix that in a minute.

Besides that though one purpose of this post is to recognize the fact that 
there are a lot of folks out there who love birding, rare birds, and even rare 
bird chasing, but who really are smartphone, tablet, computer, internet, or 
app challenged, or maybe they just are not intensely interested in 
technology for one reason or many, not wanting to spend an inordinate 
amount of their life and time learning about these things, and it's quite 
understandable.

Not everyone feels that people should evolve into some kind of connected 
cyborgs bonded to ever-advancing technology as evidenced by our science 
fiction movies and shows (and now by some folks we even meet in the 
field) no matter how close we are coming to that sort of reality.

Just try borrowing a smartphone from some people, it can be very hard to 
get them to hand it over to you, even if you have a good reason!  They can 
be instinctually hesitant and can apparently actually begin suffering 
discomfort, mild pain and withdrawal the second the device leaves their 
hand (well I guess a rare bird alert could come in while someone else has 
their phone).

All this living with technology is a powerful blessing but can also be a 
seeming curse, sometimes more replacing, rather than contributing to, a 
better way of life.  So, many people try to resist, but here I severely 
digress...

---

Concerning just replacing the Florida RBA with the simplest method to get 
the most Florida rare bird information available, in the easiest and most 
timely manner possible, it really currently boils down to three simple 
minimum steps with no account, subscription, or login actions required:

1. Check the eBird Florida Rare Bird Alert which always contains all eBird 
observations of rare birds in Florida (according to how the eBird rarity 
filters are currently set up for that region, area, or maybe even county) 
and includes both unreviewed and reviewed/approved observations for the 
last 7 days only at:

http://ebird.org/ebird/alert/summary?sid=SN35579

Just scroll and click on the checklist and/or map for the bird report you are 
interested in.

2.  Check the ABA Birding News (up to a month or so may be kept online) 
to check the other 5 major birding listservs and email groups in Florida at:

http://birding.aba.org/

Instructions at the top.

3. This is the vital one I accidentally omitted in the first post. Check the 
Tropical Audubon Society's Bird Board (as it is not on the ABA Birding 
News) at:

http://www.tropicalaudubon.org/blog/bird-board

Just scroll the current page, and/or click next at the bottom for the next 
previous page, and click or tap on the report titles to read them.

---

That's it, 3 easy to use links, if you know how to save shortcuts to these 
links on your computer, your phone, tablet, or other device, then you'll just 
have to click, double-click, or tap on the shortcuts to use these over and 
over again at any time.  If you don't know how to make a shortcut on your 
computer, or phone, etc. I am sure you know someone who does and they 
could help set it up for you. These links are all you currently need, all 
extremely easy to use, just click or tap and go back and forth. 3 simple 
steps to keep abreast of the rare bird happenings in Florida.

In addition, availing yourself of Facebook or other social media content 
tailored specifically for Florida birding and rare bird reports could yield 
maybe more and different information as well (I can't speak to what's 
available for this one).

---

Well, I think my power cell is running down, not sure if it is one of my 
devices or actually me, so I better get going and get plugged in and find 
out.  Just wanted to add the extremely vital to Florida rare bird reports 
Tropical Audubon Society Bird Board to the mix, and after all of the 
comments try to simplify this obtaining of current Florida rare bird reports 
as much as possible.  3 easy links only!

Good Birding All!

Hi All,

Now with the discontinuation of the FLARBA a BIG THANKS goes out to all of
the last FLARBA team members: Lyn Atherton, Margie Wilkinson, Chris Newton,
Roberto Torres, and to all previous team members and anyone else who
contributed to all of the high-quality care and feeding of the Florida RBA
over the years that it ran.  Folks all around the world relied on the
Florida RBA up until its last minute of operation as announced on 7/2/2016!

---

Having run a one-man public regional RBA for the Southeast for three years
and about 2500 posts, and having been a member of the team that put out the
Georgia RBA for some years as well until it ceased, I understand what is
entailed for an all volunteer team to put out a quality RBA for a whole
state.  I retired the RBA portion of The Near Georgia Report in 2012, and
the Georgia Rare Bird Alert was retired in 2014, primarily due to the
emergence and ability of eBird and its reports. However, we still post a
brief transcript of the eBird Georgia Rare Bird Alert to Georgia Birders
Online, the state birding listserv for Georgia.

Florida is such an important birding state; gee I miss the Florida RBA
already, and know that in any state a full-time dedicated professional RBA
team, such as NARBA for example but at a state level, could put out a
better, more valuable, and vetted product than the eBird RBAs currently can,
but that it's just not practical any longer to do that with a volunteer team
which cannot always respond instantly to put out that better product, but
most of the time even they still can, and they might be getting it out to a
wider audience in that state and beyond as well.

eBird checklist contributors documenting rare birds for a given state can
number in the dozens, or many more, in a given week depending on the
situation. However, a RBA team performs much valuable behind-the-scenes
vetting of rare bird reports and locations which is a very, very vital
service.  eBird reports don't always vet themselves unless excellent media
is included, and much location information in many eBird reports is often
suspect, incorrect, not exact, and/or downright unusable to the chasers of
rare birds, potentially wasting time and money.  Plus, you may have to wait
until enough eBird reports come out to corroborate things properly.  Yes, a
dedicated full-time team is still really needed for RBA perfection.

It helps greatly when folks also post rare bird sighting information to
state email groups or listservs as well.  People only posting such
information to Facebook or other social media sites nowadays are not always
necessarily interested in sharing, or able to share, the information as
widely and as quickly as could be possible, not everyone has the time or
interest to adhere to social media. A multi-pronged approach is still
needed: eBird, listservs or email groups, social media, and a dedicated
full-time RBA team.

---

Enough RBA rambling, going forward I bet the eBird checklist filters for
Florida are kept in great shape by the team members responsible for
maintaining them and that will continue to help to provide great hourly or
daily eBird Florida Rare Bird Alerts to you depending on how you have your
delivery options set.

I think it would be appropriate for a last post from the FLARBA to contain
the link to the currently permanent eBird Florida Rare Bird Alert which
always contains all eBird observations of rare birds in Florida and includes
both unreviewed and reviewed/approved observations for the last 7 days at:

http://ebird.org/ebird/alert/summary?sid=SN35579

You don't have to be subscribed to eBird to use this at any time, and it's
always available.  There is one for every state too.

Of course, the ABA Rarities eBird Alert is also available and is for
observations only of rare birds ABA Code-3: Rare and above in the ABA Area,
and also includes both unreviewed and reviewed/approved observations for
last 7 days as well. For Florida this alert will just show Florida ABA Code
3 and above birds.

ABA Rarities eBird Alert currently permanent link:
http://ebird.org/ebird/alert/summary?sid=SN10489 

---

Aw shuckie-darns, also the ABA Birding News lets you read every major
birding listserv or email group in North America easily on the web without
subscribing or receiving any email.  There now more of the kitchen sink has
been thrown in.

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:35:38 -0400
Today, 6/30, I found a Roseate Tern on Disappearing Island in Ponce de Leon 
Inlet, Volusia County. The bird looked different than the pair I had on June 
10th. Perhaps this bird had just gotten more intensely colored, but the bill 
had more red at the base. Note that the Roseate Tern has extremely long outer 
tail feathers that extend well past the ends of the primaries. In addition, the 
bill is quite long, but very slim. The legs were very bright red. Note that the 
tail is pure white and has no dark on the outer web of the outer tail feathers 
as in Common and Arctic Tern and also has no dark on the inner webs of the tail 
feathers as in Forster's Tern. Note that in flight the two outer primaries show 
dark outer shafts. 


There were also over 165 Black Terns, 500 Least Terns, 100 Royal Terns, 19 
Sandwich Terns, 8 Common Terns and 6 Forster's Terns.

Subject: Changes to FOSRC review list
From: Andrew Kratter <kratter AT FLMNH.UFL.EDU>
Date: Thu, 30 Jun 2016 16:07:16 -0400
As many of you know, the Florida Ornithological Records Committee (FOSRC) 
reviews records and reports of bird species that have never been recorded in 
the State or are considered appreciably rare or infrequent. These species are 
placed on the Review List, and we solicit observations, photographs, or 
recordings of these species to review.  The criteria to remove species from 
the Review List were ten confirmed or accepted records, without a set time 
period. At our meeting last year, the FOSRC decided that our criteria for 
removing birds from the Review List were far less stringent than other well-
birded states or provinces in the ABA area.  As a result, we were not 
reviewing some exceptionally rare species for the State, like Evening 
Grosbeak or Dovekie, nor were we reviewing records of some of the 
Caribbean strays to Florida that are not found anywhere else in the ABA area 
(Key West Quail-Dove, Bahama Mockingbird, La Sagra’s Flycatcher, 
Bananaquit, etc.).  The Committee recently voted to change the criteria for 
removal to more those species that have had 20 or more accepted records 
over the previous ten years.   As before, we continue to include species that 
we feel warrant inclusion, because they are difficult to identify or occur very 

irregularly, even though they may surpass the criteria.  This change has 
resulted in the addition of many species to the Review List that were not 
previously on the list. We thus would like from this point to receive 
documentation for these new additions. We would also like to receive any 
observations, photographs or other documentation for the past ten years, 
(although please not all at once, as we have a busy agenda for our meeting in 
August).   The best way to submit is through the FOSRC website: 
http://www.fosbirds.org/content/fos-bird-records-species-documentation
which has capacity for uploading digital photographs and audio recordings.  
The new additions to the Review List, which will soon be added to the official 
list on our website (http://www.fosbirds.org/official-florida-state-bird-list), 
are 

(drum-roll):
 Brant 
Tundra Swan 
American Black Duck
Harlequin Duck
Pacific Loon 
Red-footed Booby
Great Cormorant 
Golden Eagle
Yellow Rail
Hudsonian Godwit
Ruff 
Curlew Sandpiper
Long-tailed Jaeger
Sabine’s Gull
Black-legged Kittiwake
Dovekie
Key West Quail Dove
Calliope Hummingbird
Say’s Phoebe
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher 
Fork-tailed Flycatcher
La Sagra’s Flycatcher
Bahama Mockingbird 
Sprague’s Pipit 
Lapland Longspur
Snow Bunting
Mourning Warbler
Black-throated Gray Warbler
Townsend’s Warbler
Bananaquit
Western Spindalis
Black-headed Grosbeak
Evening Grosbeak

We would appreciate re-posts to more local Facebook pages or list-serves.
Thanks!

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>

Today, 6/22, I spent several hours on Disappearing Island looking at terns and 
shorebirds. Most surprising was a 1st summer Arctic Tern. The bird immediately 
stood out by the very round head and steep forehead, with a small, all dark 
bill that is relatively short compared to a Common Tern. The dark hood also 
extends far down on the face, even below the eye. The reddish legs were also 
very short in comparison with Common Terns nearby. The primaries were all even 
aged. This is significant because 1st summer Common Terns have several retained 
juvenile primaries at this age, while Arctic Terns molt on their wintering 
grounds and now have fresh primaries. The tail had distinct dark outer vanes to 
the outer retrices. In flight, the bird appeared very short-necked and the 
weight of the bird appears far forward, giving it a different profile than 
Common Terns. On the underside of the wings, there was a very clean dark line 
on the primary tips. The bird also showed a very subdued c! 

 arpel bar. A Common Tern would show a bold dark carpel bar.

Also present were:
3 Common Terns
2 Forster's Terns
2 Caspian Terns
35 Royal Terns
8 Sandwich Terns
160+ Least Terns
3 Black Skimmers
25 Laughing Gulls
1 Lesser Black-backed Gull
19 Wilson's Plovers
37 Semipalmated Plovers
18 Black-bellied Plovers
11 Willets
17 Ruddy Turnstones
1 Semipalmated Sandpiper
1 Short-billed Dowitcher

This morning, 6/20, we had 4 Great Shearwaters and one Band-rumped Storm-Petrel 
brought in to the Marine Science Center bird hospital. So far, only one Great 
Shearwater is still alive. The Band-rumped Storm-Petrel appears to be a Grant's 
Storm-Petrel. The Atlantic Band-rumped Storm-Petrel complex may contain as many 
as four distinct species (or subspecies depending on various interpretations). 
This one has a square tail and limited carpel bar and has 3 retained primaries 
on each wing. This is consistent with the Grant's Storm-Petrel, the most common 
group of this complex in the U.S.

This afternoon, 6/19, I stopped off at the beach at Ormond-by-the-Sea for a few 
minutes to scan the ocean for birds driven in by the strong 25 knot NE winds 
today. I did not find much activity, however, I did find a single Great 
Shearwater and a late 1st summer Northern Gannet.

There was also a beautiful breeding plumaged Gull-billed Tern. This morning, 
6/17, I stopped off at Lighthouse Point Park, at Ponce de Leon Inlet, and found 
2 Black Terns with the 150+ Least Terns, 6 Common Terns, many Royal Terns and

Yesterday evening after work, 6/16, I stopped off at the Port Orange Bridge on 
Dunlawton Ave. and found 4 American Avocets foraging on the sandbar just west 
of the pelican colony. From the bill shape, they all appeared to be males. 
There was also a beautiful breeding plumaged Gull-billed Tern. This morning, 
6/17, I stopped off at Lighthouse Point Park, at Ponce de Leon Inlet, and found 
2 Black Terns with the 150+ Least Terns, 6 Common Terns, many Royal Terns and 
few Black Skimmers. There were also 4 Reddish Egrets, including one white 
morph. All of these birds were on Disappearing Island in the Inlet. A scope is 
required.

This morning, 6/8, I found a Brown Booby sitting on the "Bell Buoy" off the 
north jetty at Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia County. This is the farthest buoy 
out. It is one mile from shore. A scope is needed to see the bird. 

Yesterday evening, 6/7, I was doing some breeding bird survey work in Flagler

Pelagic Trip Report. May 29, 2016

On May 29th, 42 stalwart individuals boarded the Pastime Princess in
New Smyrna Beach and headed out of Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia County
at 3:00 a.m. on another Marine Science Center pelagic birding trip. We
traveled out to the Gulf Stream and began to find bird action shortly
after dawn. With the crew chumming heavily, we had an amazing day. By
8:00 a.m. we had already logged Sooty Terns, Pomarine Jaegers,
Wilson’s Storm-Petrels, Cory’s Shearwaters, Black-capped Petrels,
and to top it off a stunning White-tailed Tropicbird. The action
continued for several hours virtually non-stop.  We hit a slower period
about lunch time when suddenly we had another White-tailed Tropicbird,
Bridled Tern and Audubon’s Shearwater. We made it out 62 miles
offshore to the edge of a canyon over 2,400 feet deep. We found several
forms of Black-capped Petrel including the "white-faced" type and the
"dark-faced" type. We also found both subspecies of Cory's Shearwater,
including "Scopoli's" Shearwater, the subspecies that breeds in the
Mediterranean. Some of the numbers of certain species are difficult to
be sure about. For example, at one time I saw 4 Black-capped Petrels
simultaneously. However, I had 25 sightings during the day and B-C
Petrels usually do not stay put for long, but it is difficult to know
the exact number. 

We ended up with a fantastic day full of excellent birds, at least 10
Loggerhead Sea Turtles and we successfully released a Green Sea Turtle
from the Marine Science Center sea turtle hospital back to the wild at a
weedline in Gulf Stream. Here is my count of species seen beyond 2 miles
offshore:

Black-capped Petrel		25
Cory’s Shearwater		19
Great Shearwater		1
Audubon’s Shearwater	            1
Wilson’s Storm-Petrel		36
Band-rumped Storm-Petrel	2
White-tailed Tropicbird	            2
Laughing Gull			1
Sooty Tern			9
Bridled Tern			4
Common Tern			2
Royal Tern			3
Pomarine Jaeger		4
Barn Swallow			1
Common Yellowthroat	            1
Warbler sp.			2
Bobolink			            1

Thanks to all of the folks that came with us and a special thanks to
the great leaders that helped me out: Mitchell Harris, Andy Kratter,
Jonathan Mays, Rangel Diaz and Bob Wallace.

The next trip will be on Sunday, July 24th.

I went back to Columbia Road this morning in search of the female Connecticut 
Warbler seen yesterday. I stayed until around 10 am with no luck. After hearing 
all the reports of the shorebirds on the Merritt Island NWR I headed there to 
try my luck. I went down the bio lab road, and the only shore birds were a very 
few in the marsh near the beach end of the road. I definitely saw a 
White-rumped Sandpiper with some other peeps. Next I went down Black Point 
Drive. I saw no shore birds anywhere. I did see an Eastern Kingbird feeding off 
the road. I don't know where the shorebirds went that were reported. 

 I only saw the Connecticut Warbler once last week at Columbia. What a 
beautiful bird! I was only able to get some ID shots of it, I want to share 
some more of them with you.

Went to the area behind the fire department where the Yellow-green Vireo and 
the Connecticut Warbler were found. I and others located the birds. I was only 
able to get id shots of both species, but it was really good to see them. I had 
seen the Yellow-green Vireo on territory in Belize. Never knew how hard it was 
to photograph not on territory. My first Connecticut Warbler was out in the 
open providing great looks for 10 mins. or more.

Subject: Lori Wilson Park - Upland Sandpiper
From: Drew Fulton <drew AT DREWFULTON.COM>
Date: Fri, 6 May 2016 11:45:05 -0400
I just returned from a morning of birding at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa. As we 
were leaving the hammock, an Upland Sandpiper landed on the roof of one of the 
picnic table pavilions by the bathroom at the south entrance to the hammock 
trail. The bird offered incredible views on the roof for about 60 seconds 
before taking off again and heading south over the sea grapes and palms of the 
back dunes. We didn’t see it land and were unable to relocate the bird after 
a few minutes of looking. The bird was very erratic like it had just landed 
from a long distance migration and didn’t know where to go. 


In the hammock itself, American Redstarts and Blackpoll Warblers dominated with 
a small number of Black and White Warblers, a couple Common Yellowthroats, a 
Northern Parula, and a singing, but unseen, Cape May Warbler. A couple of the 
American Redstarts were also singing. 


Keep an eye out if you are in the area.  

Best,
Drew

Graham Williams, David Foster and I just found a Ruff at Spoonbill Pond in 
extreme NE Duval county (Jacksonville). 


This is the third county record and first chaseable one. Scope from the kiosk 
on the boardwalk closest to parking lot (Big Talbot Isl SP Sawpit Creek boat 
ramp) and look on the far edge of pond towards Nassau Sound. It's associating 
with dowitchers mostly. Please please please do not encroach along the ocean 
side of the pond, especially in the roped off area. Shorebirds - including 
Wilson's Plover nest there. You wouldn't have a good angle for the Ruff from 
there anyway. Scope required. Evening is best otherwise you'll be looking into 
rising sun. 


Other nice shorebirds present include Stilt Sandpipers, White-rumped, and 
Semipalmated Sandpipers. A locally uncommon Glossy Ibis is present, as is a 
lingering drake Green-winged Teal. 


Ebird list will follow later.

Subject: CUBAN VIREO - Fort Zachary Taylor Historic SP, Key West - 4/22/2016 - Video Post
From: Mark McShane <mcshane1 AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Tue, 3 May 2016 22:30:17 -0400
Hi All,

Thought some might enjoy handheld phonescoped video clips and video still
frames of The CUBAN VIREO recently in Key West and taken on 4/22. There is
one short clip of the bird vocalizing (please turn the volume up to hear the
bird) which is only on my Box site.

I wish that the THICK-BILLED VIREO out on the Barrier Island Nature Trail at
John U. Lloyd Beach State Park in Broward County had posed so well much
earlier in the day, but that did not diminish my sincere gratitude that the
Thick-billed showed up in such a timely manner, or at all. I hope many folks
are or were able to capture even better video footage of The CUBAN VIREO.
Stunning still photos are always amazing, but there's a lot of the life of a
bird to be captured via video, even in this rudimentary form!

Thanks again Florida!

folder on my Box site at: 
https://app.box.com/shared/2yxtdkm3ta 
Video quality should be best when viewing the actual video files (MOV files)
there as Flickr or eBird, etc., may downsample video quality a bit during
upload processing. The entire folder can be downloaded or just individual
files may be.

Information concerning how to use Apple MOV movie files can be read in my
MOV Video File How-To.txt available at:

--- 
Some of the video files on the site can be a bit large and may take some
minutes to download if you don't have high-speed internet access, but it may
be best to download them to your desktop or somewhere on your computer
before running them in QuickTime. That way they may run faster and you can
keep them if you like them too. Being handheld and usually at a very high
magnification they can sometimes get a little jittery, but they are still
worth a look, especially since you can drag through frame by frame in
QuickTime and pause the video on the best parts, playing at half speed in
QuickTime can also be a good idea.

Good Birding All,

Mark

Every year I like checking on the status of the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow. I 
go to 3 Lakes WMA.. I got to talking to the biologist there this morning. They 
told me they may have the Sparrow in a stable situation now. Not really going 
up or down in numbers. They still don't have an answer as to why the bird's 
numbers were going down. I just hope that we will get some kind of positive 
data with numbers going up in the future. It appears that a lot of the Florida 
Grasshopper Sparrows have already gone to nesting at the present time..

Carl Goodrich looked for several hours, without success, in Fort Zachary Taylor 
after the subject bird was not at its usual location. There were others there 
but no posting indicating the bird had been refound. 


He also looked in  indigenous park without success.
