 After examining my pictures I noticed that the Clay-colored Sparrow's foot is 
injured along with his eye. This is more like a predator attack to me. It 
really saddens me, because this bird was a comfort to me during the passing of 
my wife last year. I hope he survives

Subject: Ft. Clinch pier gathering of eagles
From: Patrick Leary <PRLeary AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Wed, 26 Nov 2014 13:47:20 -0500
Ft. Clinch State Park - pier: The persistent weather system impacting most
of the state rapidly cleared the coast this morning and I visited the pier
to check developments. As I hiked out the structure, I noticed an unusual
paucity of birds on the adjoining beach-roosting habitat. The cause was soon
disclosed when I noted three eagles perched on the pier. All appeared to be
feeding on some hapless prey and closer inspection found plucked feathers
littering the deck.  This was the first occasion that I have observed eagles
perched on the structure and to find three at one time was most unusual.
Given their behavior, all were related and closely associated. Perhaps the
young were last season's progeny and the adult was from a local pair that
nest west of the park? 

 

Otherwise, two hen Black Scoter worked the jetty rocks, a striking HY juv.
Purple Sandpiper joined the adult roosting with numerous Ruddy Turnstone on
the pier railings and mobs of juv. Herring Gulls gathered along the
structure where one hovered overhead demonstrating that (even that mundane
species) can be a worthy photography subject.

My Clay-colored Sparrow I had last year in my yard returned with this passing 
cold front today. I'm sad to report it's right eye is badly injured or missing. 
I was surprised to see him since I've been checking my 50 or so Chipping 
Sparrows daily for him. I don't know if he encountered a predator or flew into 
something.

Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island:  FOS Purple Sandpiper resting on Ft. Clinch
pier this morning under rather violent surf conditions. While I visited the
park, Doris reported a wayward Magnificent Frigatebird over our residence.
Doubtless, the strong warm front moving up the peninsula brought the latter
species to NE Florida.  Otherwise, the "usual suspects" roosting on the
beach at the base of the pier with the heavy fog/mist concealing any
activity over the adjoining ocean. FOS Chipping sparrows in yard feeder
yesterday.

Subject: Jaegers and scoters. Canaveral National Seashore. Volusia Co.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Sun, 23 Nov 2014 07:58:00 -0500
Yesterday, 11/22, I spent about 3 hours doing a sea watch at Canaveral National 
Seashore, Volusia Co. The strong east winds were ripping at about 25 knots at 
times. Although it is a little late for the big push in jaegers, I still had 69 
jaegers fly by. There were 39 Pomarine Jaegers and 6 Parasitic Jaegers. The 
rest were too far out to say for sure. There were also good numbers of Black 
Scoters, about 100 total, far below the 3,000 I had last year. I also had 
flocks of Horned Grebes, Buffleheads, loads of Lesser Scaup, Red-breasted 
Mergansers, Green-winged Teal, 2 Shovelers, a few Northern Pintail, and 500+ 
Northern Gannets. 

On Thursday, 11/20, I stopped at the agricultural field in Flagler County and 
found about 200 American Pipits. I searched for rarer species, but only came up 
with a few Vesper Sparrows and a lot of Savannah Sparrows.

Subject: Franklin's Gulls Huguenot Park
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 22 Nov 2014 19:02:15 -0500
At least two Franklin's Gulls were present at
Huguenot Park in Jacksonville late this
afternoon. They were in large mixed flocks
with one each on either side of the jetty.
I thought I saw a third individual on the
river side but it was buried in a very large
and dense flock. When the gulls and terns
are roosting in large numbers on the river
side at the base of the jetties the vast
majority of Laughing Gulls are usually
along the water's edge and can be difficult
to check as the the shore tends to slope
adjacent to the water and there is usually
a huge mass of other birds in the way. I
also thought I saw a Purple Sandpiper
on the north side of the rocks just near
the waterline. I caught a glimpse of the
bird among numerous Turnstones from
some distance away but when I got up
to the rocks I could not relocate it.

There were also around 200 Lesser Black-
backed Gulls, a very good number for
this point in the season. About 2/3 of these
were immatures, mostly first year birds.
A very large number of birds were on the
sand bars north of the north point of the
bank, too far to see well. It looked like
there was a group of people with scopes
on Little Talbot who may have had a better
view.

This evening, 11/18, I found three 1st cycle Franklin's Gulls at Daytona Beach 
Shores. One had some orange staining on the chest that looked like it had been 
in a bag of Cheetoes.

Today, 11/17, at noon, I again found the Great Cormorant on some pilings in the

the pilings south of Aunt Catfish's Restaurant on Halifax Drive just before the

As Danny Bales mentioned, there were several Franklin's Gulls present at

Tonight I located 3 Franklin's Gulls at Datona Beach Shores. Michael Brothers 
saw 3 when I ran into him, and I had found one. After leaving Michael I 
loacated 2 of the ones Michael found. One of the Franklin's had an injured leg.

Yesterday evening, 11/13, I stopped off at Daytona Beach Shores shortly before 
sunset. I walked the beach past thousands of Laughing and Ring-billed Gulls and 
found 4 Franklin's Gulls scattered periodically along about a mile of beach. 
The birds were found north of Van Avenue Park and south of Frank Rendon Park. 
These parks are located along Atlantic Avenue (A-1-A) in Daytona Beach Shores, 
north of the Dunlawton Avenue intersection. Interestingly, in comparing the 
photos from many days on the beach, these Franklin's Gulls seem to be all 
different individuals.

This evening, 11/11, I stopped off at the gull concentrations in Daytona Beach 
Shores. The number of Laughing Gulls has greatly increased. There were 
thousands on the beach. There were many Ring-billed Gulls. However, the number 
of Franklin's Gulls had decreased today. I could only find a single 1st cycle 
Franklin's Gull. The gulls were dense in the area near the Oceans Condominiums. 
The best access is at Van Avenue Park - a small beach front park about 1 mile 
south of Frank Rendon Park. Park here and walk the beach, especially north for 
1/2 mile to see the best gull concentrations.

pouring rain under the Dunlawton Bridge and found a lone 1st cycle Franklin's 
Gull on the oyster bar at the pelican colony just south of the bridge in Port 
Orange.

Ft. Clinch jetty beach: This morning, two Savannah sparrows flushed from the
high beach wrack and resettled a short distance away. Viewing them through
binoculars, they were distinct in plumage and hue. One a typical Savannah,
the second much paler and larger. See Flicker link below.  Is the second
bird an Ipswich form of Savannah or just a pale version of the
"run-of-the-mill" beach savannahs?

At the larid roost, Ring-billed gulls dominated with Laughers a close second
with no Franklin's detected. Oddly, no Great or Lesser  black-backed were
present. Total nos. occupying the roost were highest for the season. One
flock of Black Scoter passed south offshore but no Northern Gannet were
detected over the ocean. A banded Royal tern carcass was found in the wrack
and a BBL report indicated it was banded as a chick on 7/13/2000 at
Crisfield, Accomack Co. VA. fourteen years ago!

Bill: We have not revisited the sightings location since the 29th and others 
who have attempted to locate the bird in the region have reported no success to 
date. In fact, some observers have reported many fewer gulls and terns roosting 
at traditional coastal sites then in prior weeks.

From: Bev Hansen <bevalhansen AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sun, 9 Nov 2014 07:16:57 -0500
On Friday Jim McKay found a female Brewer's Blackbird near the fishing 
pier at Bayport Park in Hernando County. We assume that she is the same 
bird that has been found there every winter since December 2011. She 
typically travels with the much larger Boat-tailed Grackles. When the 
group is not found at Bayport Park, sometimes they can be located at 
Jenkins Creek Park, or across the street at Linda Pedersen Park.

Bayport Park is at the end of CR-550, about 6.5 miles from the 
intersection with US-19. Jenkins Creek Park and Linda Pedersen Park are 
on Shoal Line Blvd. (CR-597). From the intersection of Shoal Line Blvd. 
and CR-550 (3.3 miles west of US-19), drive south 2.3 miles. Jenkins 
Creek Park is on the west side of the road, and Linda Pedersen Park on 
the east.

This morning, 11/8, I found a female Boat-tailed Grackle with a pale iris. It 
is apparently from the "torreyi" subspecies from Duval and Nassau Counties and 
farther north on the Atlantic Coast. The bird was found at Feiser's Dairy in

This evening after work, 11/06, I stopped off at Daytona Beach Shores and drove 
the beach for several miles. At about the 3000 block of South Atlantic Avenue, 
I found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull. This bird was unusual in that the white 
eye arcs were not very pronounced. Also, the black on the head was not 
particularly dense. This made the bird easy to overlook among the Laughing 
Gulls. However, I could see that the tail band did not extend all the way 
across the tail so that the white outer tail feathers are solid white.

On Tuesday, November 4th I visited the small beach at the Courtney Campbell 
Causeway. I saw the following birds on the beach: Semipalmated plover, 
Wilson’s plover, Dunlin, Western Sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Laughing Gull, 
Forster’s Tern, Sandwich Tern. When I was out at the beach a couple of weeks 
ago there were still a number of Black Terns did see them this time. Actually 
there were not a lot of gulls or terns at the beach today.

This morning, 11/6, I again found the Great Cormorant on a dock piling in Port 
Orange, Volusia County. I had not seen the bird all week, even though I stopped 
by the area several times this week. The bird was on a piling about 100 yards 
south of the Fleming Avenue intersection on Halifax Drive along the Halifax 
River in Port Orange. Go east on Dunlawton Avenue cross US 1 and turn south on 
Halifax Drive right at Aunt Catfish's Restaurant. The bird was on the left 
about 1/2 mile south.

Subject: Toe webbing on Semipalmated Sandpipers.
From: Murray Gardler <mangrovefirst AT TAMPABAY.RR.COM>
Date: Mon, 3 Nov 2014 10:59:02 -0500
Unless, I am wrong, there have been several references recently to SESA toe 
webbing as a diagnostic tool to ID the subject birds. 


One can google this subject and find that Western Sandpipers also have toe 
webbing. I learned this the hard way by my own misidentification of a bird on 
the Dry Tortugas several years ago. 


Go to this article below, by Don Roberson, which I have quoted.
http://creagrus.home.montereybay.com/MTYbirdsSESA.html

"Of course a feature that is not seen in these photos is the presence or 
absence of webbing between the toes. Red-necked and Little Stint lack webbing. 
Semipalmated and Western Sandpipers have obvious webbing. It was my impression 
in the field that the Pt. Joe bird had webbing, but the best photo I have on 
that point (below) is not clear. I can 'feel' the webbing is shown by the 
'big-footed' look, but it remains ambiguous. 

In the end, all reviewers agreed the Pt. Joe individual was a Semipalmated 
Sandpiper, but the differences are subtle and it certainly helps to have photo 
comparisons. I appreciate the reveiws and comments on this topic from Graham 
Catley, Paul Lehman, Curtis Marantz, Larry Sansone, and Brian Sullivan. It was 
an interesting and educational review for me."

Subject: Swallows. Lots of Swallows.
From: Bob Richter <brichter62 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 31 Oct 2014 18:13:45 -0400
I took a couple of hours to run out to Hueguenot
Park on the (not so) off chance that Leary's Little
Gull might be around. As Pat pointed out, the
gulls tend to congregate at high tide so I timed
my visit on the rising tide. This, of course, was
didn't work out so well in terms of available time
on site. There weren't many gulls and terns in the
lagoon or the north point. I made it back down to
the jetty with about 20 minutes to spare before
I would have to leave to beat the tide. There were
many gulls and terns on the sand on the south
side of the jetty and about one hundred on the
north side. The birds were pretty high up the on
the flats and scanned through them a few times
with binocs and a couple of times with a scope.
I was concentrating on looking for the Little Gull
but was also hoping to locate a Franklin's. I think
I was pretty thorough on the one but didn't spend
enough on the other. There probably were
Franklin's to be found if you take the time to
pick through all the Laughing. At any rate, I
didn't find either. There were also lots of shore
birds pretty much at all areas in the park.

Driving along the river on the way out I saw a
cloud of somethings over toward A1A and the
park entrance. I pulled over and got out of the
car. Passing over the area were, I estimated,
seventy to eighty thousand Tree Swallows. I
hoped to get some video but the birds were
moving pretty quickly to the west. They were
in a fairly dense and elongated flock and not
a swirling mass. While I have seen hundreds
of thousands of Tree Swallows at St Marks I
don't think I have seen this many in Duval
County, possibly 30-40,000 at most. These
were also my first of season Tree Swallows.
They were moving through very quickly and
I wasn't able to scan the flock very well. This
large mass of birds appeared to be all Tree
Swallows. I did see some Barn Swallows over
the lagoon and then the ocean and marsh
just up A1A. There were also more Tree Swallows
in widely scattered groups.

In Baker County, fall migration was kind of a bust.
Best birds were an Alder Flycatcher and a
single Tennessee Warbler. On Wednesday
there were three early Redheads on Ocean Pond.

The Great Cormorant was present again this afternoon, 10/31,on some old dock 
pilings along Halifax Drive in Port Orange, Volusia County. The bird was found 
just north of Fleming Avenue on Halifax Drive. This is off Dunlawton Avenue, 
east of US 1. Turn south (right) at Aunt Catfish's Restaurant. Go about 1/2 
mile on Halifax Drive. Look for some old dock pilings on the left that usually 
have some Double-crested Cormorants sitting on them.

I decided to go out mid day to Shiloh marsh, and see how the habitat, and 
Sharptails were doing. The water is way down now. I found 6 Saltmarsh and 5 
Nelson's Sparrows. Unusual to find that many mid day so there must still be 
plenty to see.

RE: Little Gull, Nassau Sound.  Due to confusion re multiple "bird islands"
in Nassau Sound, please be informed that subject bird was on the west tip of
Big Bird Island in lower Nassau Sound vs. Lt. Bird Island in mid-sound. The
former landform is now contiguous with the north end of Lt. Talbot Island
State Park and is accessible by foot. However, due to severe erosion of the
ocean beach, access along the shore is blocked at high tide, thus making it
problematic to hike to the island's north end on higher tide stages.
Visitors must time their hikes before and after high tide or take the
woodland trail north to the beach to bypass the obstructions. Consult the
front gate re these circumstances. 

 

Note: I have added two additional photos to the Flicker album to put the
bird "in context" within the flock and to offer another view of the bird's
distinctive plumage, especially the bold primary edging. Note "tilted"
aspect of the bird's posture when standing. When walking and standing it
assumed this odd posture.

This evening, 10/28, I stopped off at the gull roost on the sand bar just south 
of the Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange. I scanned through several thousand 
Laughing Gulls and found 5 Franklin's Gulls mixed in with the group. There is 
no access to this sand bar, but you can use a scope to search through the 
birds. There is a boat ramp and public parking area underneath the bridge.

These photos were taken last weekend, but not in a public location. It's 
the first Lark Sparrow I've seen that wasn't an adult.  I thought to 
myself, its a Lark Sparrow but then I thought, why?  The adult is so 
obvious that one doesn't have to focus on other details to come to an id 
but I needed to with this one.

If anyone disagrees with the id, I'd appreciate you sharing your reasons?

Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 12:46:25 -0400
Nassau Sound, Duval Co:  A juv. Lt. Gull (Larus minutus) was found roosting
with a mixed flock of Forster's, Sandwich, Royal, Caspian and one late
Common Tern just before noon today. Doris spied the rare gull as we searched
for the lone Common tern lost amongst the Forster's. The flock flushed
frequently due to Osprey and Bald eagles aloft over the lower sound, but the
Lt. Gull consistently returned to the roost site on the west tip of Big Bird
Island. Larid roosting is closely associated with the higher tides, thus the
birds will disperse soon after this is posted. In the next several days, any
regional flock of resting Forster's terns should be closely scanned for the
odd, diminutive, gull.

This morning, 10/28, I found another 1st cycle Franklin's Gull. This one was on 
a sand bar on the west end of Ponce de Leon Inlet. Views of this sand bar are 
best from the end of the grassy walkway that runs due west from the main 
parking lot at Lighthouse Point Park in the town of Ponce Inlet. The sand bar 
is only visible at low tide. There were several hundred Common Terns and 100+ 
Black Skimmers as well as many Laughing Gulls on the sand bar.

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.

From: Susan Daughtrey <susansd AT COMCAST.NET>

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>

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.

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.

From: SUEREDFISH Bales <sueredfish AT MSN.COM>
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.)

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.

Cameron Cox and others have refund THE pewee at Alafia River State Park. It is 
"calling." Not sure if that means calling or full song. Yesterday it was in 
full song for about 10 seconds.

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.

Subject: Black-capped Petrels, shearwaters, and warblers. Pelagic Trip report.
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.

I met 9 other birders at Turkey Creek during the morning and all seemed to be 
doing well chasing the small flocks. The creek is over it's bank and many areas 
are flooded. Mckinnon Way had 8 inches of standing water. Here are my migrant 
sightings. 


American Redstart (9)
Black and White (6)
Blackburnian (3)
Blk-Throated Blue (4)
Cape May (3)
Chestnut-sided (2)
Common Yellowthroat (3 females)
Magnolia (3)
N. Parula (8)
Ovenbird
Prairie 
Yellow-Throated 
Red-eyed Viero (11+)
White-eyed Viero
B-G Gnatcatcher (6)

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

Subject: This morning at Ft Pickens
From: Lucy & Bob Duncan <town_point AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Tue, 23 Sep 2014 17:07:12 -0500
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).

 

Regards,

Lee Snyder

You know, Bob, if you were really good, you’d send us quantities of each 
species, sex/age ratios, and exact times each species arrives.

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.
