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

From: Kevin Dailey <kedailey AT YAHOO.COM>
Date: Thu, 5 May 2016 19:47:12 -0400
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!

Handheld phonescoped video clips and still frames 
(iPhone 5/Nikon Fieldscope 25-75x82mm ED Angled, with 30x/50x wide-angle as

of The Vireo can be downloaded from the

042216 CUBAN VIREO Fort Zachary Taylor Historic SP Key West FL

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.

A quick and easy view of some of the video still frames of the The Vireo can
be had via the eBird checklist as well:

Information concerning how to use Apple MOV movie files can be read in my
MOV Video File How-To.txt available at: 
http://www.box.com/s/ojj2lap6sayrj83n9zzx 
--- 
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..

but no posting indicating the bird had been refound. 


He also looked in  indigenous park without success.

Subject: Lazuli Bunting - Sugar Hill Campground, St. George Island State Park, Franklin County - 4/10/2016 - Video Post
From: Mark McShane <mcshane1 AT BELLSOUTH.NET>
Date: Sat, 16 Apr 2016 12:08:35 -0400
Hi All,

Sorry for the late post but have chased birds twice this week in Florida 
from metro Atlanta and just now catching up.

I had been wanting to see a Lazuli Bunting in the southeast for some years 
but it had just never quite worked out.  I saw Karen Chaisson's eBird report 
on Wednesday the 6th but was hoping for more and later sighting 
confirmations prior to chasing the bird as I had to wait until the weekend at 
least.  Well, no reports on the bunting were to be seen through Saturday 
evening on the 9th so I was kind of wistfully letting the bird go until... 
right 

before bed I made a final sweep of Florida listservs for any good news and 
found John Murphy's earlier 10:24pm Saturday night post of his sighting of 
the Lazuli that day at around 4pm!

Gloriosky!  Instead of going to bed then I packed up a little bit and headed 
for the coastal Florida panhandle arriving about 380 miles distant at the 
Sugar Hill Campground of the Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State 
Park in Franklin County at about 9:15 Sunday morning, and refound the 
bird at about 10:45!  It was really great to meet Bill Phelan and the other 
Lazuli chasers who arrived later in the morning, I think everyone was able 
to see the bunting.

Relocated with several Indigo Buntings near or in campsite 58 and 60 at 
about 10:45am.
Coordinates: 29.7205675,-84.74603
GPS: N 29 43.234 W 84 44.762

---

I was able to get a little handheld phonescoped video of the Lazuli which 
some may enjoy.  The video clips and still frames can be downloaded at the

041016 Lazuli Bunting St George Island SP FL

folder on my Box site at:

https://app.box.com/shared/2yxtdkm3ta

All also easily available on Flickr at:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/50282116 AT N04/

Handheld phonescoped video and still frames may be best viewed on a 
large screen.

---

A quick and easy view of some still frames of the bird can be had via the 
eBird checklist as well:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S28973121

---

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

http://www.box.com/s/ojj2lap6sayrj83n9zzx
    
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.

---

Thanks again Florida and Good Birding All!

Hi All,

About 10 birders have seen THE PACIFIC this morning in the location previously 
posted. 


We had a scare when 15 Black-bellied Plovers got up heading east finally out of 
scope range 

2 plus miles out, but Trey McCuen with me relocated the Pacific here.

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Mon, 4 Apr 2016 14:53:37 -0400
Last Wednesday, 3/30, I was driving down US 1 in Port Orange when I spotted an 
unfamiliar bird sitting on a wire. I went around the block and was surprised to 
find a Northern Rough-winged Swallow sitting on the wire. The bird flew off 
toward the Halifax River and I thought I would follow it. I found two RW 
Swallows sitting on a wire along the river. Today, 4/4, I went back along the 
river and was much more surprised to find them again. Evidently, these are not 
just migrants. This time they truly seemed to be a pair. One of the birds flew 
down and grabbed a bit of nesting material and flew off. Northern Rough-winged 
Swallows are very scarce nesting birds in Volusia County and I have never seen 
them nesting this early in the year.

Last night, 3/29, I found two more Franklin's Gulls on the beach at Daytona 
Beach Shores. Interestingly, one of the birds was yet another individual. This 
one is in a more advanced stage of molt with all new inner primaries, several 
outer primaries growing in and two retained juvenile primaries on the right 
wing and one retained primary on the left wing.

Today, 3/28, Jay Barry and I found three young Franklin's Gulls and a 1st cycle 
Glaucous Gull in restricted areas of the Tomoka Landfill, Daytona Beach. I am 
sure that all of these birds will make their way to Daytona Beach Shores where 
they will be easier to see. It is interesting to see that one of the Franklin's 
Gulls was much more advanced and had molted out the banded tail, all of the 
wing coverts and the inner primaries.

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>

This evening, 3/24, the Iceland Gull, Glaucous and Franklin's Gull were all on 
the beach south of Frank Rendon Park, Daytona Beach Shores, Volusia County. All 
are first cycle birds. The number of gulls is vastly reduced from the huge 
flocks of winter. As Bill Pranty mentioned, the disturbance of the birds is 
intense in the afternoons. Because it stays light so late, I would recommend 
arriving about 6:00 p.m. and stay until dark. After 6:00 p.m. the number of 
people and the disturbance of the birds is greatly reduced. 


Also, the Purple Sandpiper is still present on the north jetty at Ponce Inlet. 
It is best to look for it near high tide when the foraging areas are covered by 
water. The bird is then usually resting on the rocks with Ruddy Turnstones.

This evening, 3/16, I found an unusual adult gull on the beach at Daytona Beach

slightly paler, larger, longer legged and larger headed than the nearby 
Laughing Gulls. The bird has faint ring around the bill and a small mirror on 
P10. Similar birds have been found in Wisconsin and Illinois. There was also a 
1st cycle Glaucous Gull on the beach. Both birds were about 1/4 mile south of 
Frank Rendon Park.

Hi,
 Today, while running my route to monitor and empty 11 monofilament recycling 
bins, I discovered a pair of American Oystercatchers nesting on a small spoil 
island on the west side of the ICW, just north of the Port Orange Bridge (SR 
421). The official Florida Shorebird Alliance survey window for March doesn't 
start until Friday, 3/18. However, as the old saying goes, "The birds don't 
read the books." The female was incubating and her mate was patrolling the 
area. Good thing too since there were 13 Fish Crows perched on a piece of drift 
wood about 50 feet away.

Today in the piney woods of Bayard Conservation Area lots of Backman's were 
heard singing. This was FOS for me although I did hear 1 or 2 yesterday. BCA 
is in Clay County East of Green Cove Springs off SR 16  along the West 
bank of the St Johns River. 

Good and lucky birding to all.

This evening, 3/4, I made a quick run through the gulls at Daytona Beach Shores 
and found a 1st cycle Iceland Gull at the 2400 block about 1/4 mile north of 
Frank Rendon Park and a 1st cycle Glaucous Gull about 1/4 mile south of the

Subject:  The Florida Scrub-Jay is indigenous to Florida & endangered
•
Hi all, 
•
The Florida Scrub-Jay [FLSJ] is indigenous to the state of Florida and found 
nowhere outside of Florida.  The FLSJ ought to be the state bird of Florida.  
Currently the mockingbird is the state bird of Florida.  Several other states 
also list this as their state bird.   It’s not unprecedented for a state to 
change its state bird. 

•
Fewer than 8,000 FLSJ remain Florida. The FLSJ is an endangered species due to 
the rampant development of native lands which eliminate the habitat required by 
this species.  FLSJ likes a scrub land habitat.  This habitat is now 
fragmented & endangered. The scrub land is an ecoregion that is somewhat open 
and with a few scattered, taller plant species.  This habitat is dominated by 
scrub/dwarf oaks that range in height from three to ten feet, other plants 
include greenbrier, a few saw palmetto & a few pines. Fire is a necessary 
process to prevent succession to a too heavily forested habitat for the likes 
of Scrub-Jays. The soil consists of sand.  

•
Until recently this species of Scrub-Jay was considered by Ornithologists to be 
a subspecies or race of the Scrub Jay.   This species is separated by over a 
fifteen hundred miles distance, noncontiguous from the range of Woodhouse’s 
Scrub-Jay.  The rocky mountain form of Scrub-Jay, is now considered to be a 
separate species in the of Scrub-Jay complex.  Other western forms of 
Scrub-Jay have also been given full species status. Plumage of the FLSJ is 
noticeably different than the other scrub-jays. To me this is the most colorful 
of the Scrub-Jay complex. 

•
The FLSJ is probably the most sociable of all Scrub-Jays.  The youngsters, 
from previous seasons, “help” their parents in rearing the current 
season’s nest & fledglings. On Monday, I did observe two FLSJ collecting 
nesting materials – it’s already that time of the season for them. The 
FLJAs are perhaps bold in that they will approach humans very closely.  Over 
the years I have had them land on top of my head and also land on my hand.  I 
have never fed these guys.  Other people have apparently fed them to cause 
them to be overly friendly with people – not a good idea.  

•
Oscar Scherer State Park is south and about sixty-five miles from where I live 
in Clearwater, FL.  The only other place that I have observed & photograph 
these Scrub-Jays is well over a hundred miles away in Kissimmee State Park – 
south of Orlando, FL.  There are number of other locations for this species to 
inhabit – I have not visited those locations.

Subject: Correction: Glaucous, not Iceland Gull in Hernando County
From: Bev Hansen <bevalhansen AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Thu, 3 Mar 2016 17:54:00 -0500
As several have already pointed out, the unusual gull in Hernando County 
is a Glaucous Gull, not an Iceland Gull. Murray had reached that 
conclusion after studying his pictures and books. This is the first 
reported in Hernando County.

Thanks to everyone for your input.

The second-year Iceland Gull that Murray Gardler found this morning at
the Hernando County landfill was still present at 2 this afternoon.

The landfill, officially called Northwest Solid Waste Management
Facility, is on US-98, 10.4 miles north of the intersection of SR-50A
and US-98 in Brooksville. The entrance is on the west side of US-98, at
14450 Landfill Road, and is well marked. Birders need to stop at the
scale, tell them you are there to see the rare gull, and ask permission
to enter. Then turn left, passing a small pond on the left and straight
up the hill, and following the road to the right. Do not enter the pit
where the garbage is being dumped. Instead, stay on the paved road that
circles the pit. The facility is open Monday through Saturday, 8 - 4:30,
closed on Sunday.

The Iceland Gull flushed with the Laughing and Ring-billed Gulls, but
usually could be refound fairly quickly because of its larger size and
all white body.

At 11:30 this morning Murray Gardler reported a second- or third-year 
Iceland Gull at the landfill in Hernando County. He will try to get 
closer to get pictures.

The landfill, officially called Northwest Waste Management Facility, is 
on US-98, 10.4 miles north of the intersection of SR-50A and US-98 in 
Brooksville. The entrance is on the west side of US-98, on Landfill 
Drive, and is well marked. Birders need to stop at the scale, tell them 
you are there to watch birds, and ask permission to enter. Then turn 
left, passing a small pond on the left and straight up the hill. Murray 
saw the gull on a high pile to the left of where the dump trucks drive 
down to the pit to dump.

This evening I went to Daytona Beach Shores looking for the reported Iceland 
Gull. I was at the park that Michael was at. I searched south, but did not 
locate it, however I found a Glaucous Gull about 1/4 south of the park. The 
birds were flushed by beach goers, and the Glaucous flew south. On my way home 
I stopped at Van Ave Park, and the Glaucous was there. I'm sure it was the same 
bird.

Today 03/02/16 at 10:30 AM we saw our first STKI circling over the East gate to 
Bayard Conservation Area (BCA) on SR 16 a few miles E of Green Cove Springs in

Yesterday afternoon, 3/1, I found a 1st cycle Iceland Gull on the beach at 
Daytona Beach Shores. Interestingly, this is a different Iceland Gull than the 
one I reported a few days ago. That bird had completely white primaries. This 
bird has a faint brown wash to the outer primaries. This makes at least 3, and 
probably 4, different Iceland in this area this winter. The bird was about 1/4 
mile south of Frank Rendon Park.

Yesterday afternoon, 2/29, I found a 1st cycle Franklin's Gull among the tens 
of thousands of gulls on the beach at DaytonaBeach Shores. The Franklin's Gull 
was about 1/4 mile north of Frank Rendon Park.

Saturday February 27, 2016 my wife and I spotted a total of seven 
Crested Caracaras along county road 833 and 832 in Henry County. The 
most we have ever observed. A special blessing was at 2633'21" N 
817'36" W where we observed a young one, being fed by his mother.

After being restricted to just shooting my Painted Buntings from my
 Kitchen Window, I finally got out and did a little birding. Several 
people have asked me about the Sharptails in Shiloh, but I haven't been 
out there in a while. This morning I checked on them. The Sharptails are
 there still in small numbers. They are very stealth, and hard to find 
and photograph. The best time to try to see them would be early morning 
around 8 AM. You need a light wind to have a good success in seeing 
them. The higher winds keep them down. I saw both the Nelson's and 
Saltmarsh. No sign of the Short-eared Owl.

I was planning a trip to Long Key State Park on Wednesday.  That said, I did
NOT see any posts from yesterday (Sunday) indicating whether the bird
was/was not seen and thought I would ask the question.  Someone must have
gone looking.  If you did, I would very much like to know if the bird
was/was not seen.  Negative answers, at this point, are as valuable as
positive answers.  If the bird is no longer being seen, I can save myself
800 miles of driving - which would be greatly appreciated.  Perfectly OK to
post me directly.  Thanks

At about 4:30 this afternoon I had just pulled out
of the marina where I live on the Ortega River when
I looked up and saw a Frigatebird in flight. It was a
second year bird with white head and chest. The
bird was coming from the ssw (inland) and veered
to the ene as I watched. I pulled to the side and got
the camera out of the back seat but by the time I
was out of the car the bird was gone. It was no more
than 150 feet up, no higher than the adjacent cell
towers. This is only about the fifth time in 40 years
that I have seen one in Duval County. I did find one
at Huguenot Park on April 5 last year. This is the
furthest inland that I have seen the species. The
location is 20 miles in a straight line from the coast
or about 26 miles following the river.

Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Nassau County. Live long enough and you
truly will see anything! A glance out our windows this morning revealed a
mature cock pheasant gleaning spilled millet beneath our cage feeder. No
naive, pen-raised bird, this specimen noticed us immediately and headed for
cover. Running outside to obtain a glass-free image, the cock spied me and
entered deep covert. While cautiously maneuvering to steer the bird back
into the open, it bolted across the yard and again entered covert. When next
sighted, it had taken wing across a patch of open marsh headed north. This
bird was as wary and robust as any seen on the Kansas prairies. Per the
image, it was in perfect plumage with no ware on the long tail feathers.

Subject: California Gull. Iceland Gull. Daytona Beach Shores. Volusia Co.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Wed, 17 Feb 2016 19:19:17 -0500
This evening, 2/17, I found a 2nd cycle California Gull and a 1st cycle Iceland 
Gull (this is a different Iceland Gull from the one last night) on the beach at 
Daytona Beach Shores. Both birds were well north of Frank Rendon Park at about 
the 2100-1800 block of South Atlantic Avenue. This is where the large gulls 
have been congregating. 


The 2nd cycle California Gull is recognized by its odd bluish-colored legs, and 
the gray mantle is slightly darker than the 2nd and 3rd cycle Herring Gulls. 
The bill is slim and long and yellowish with a dark subterminal band and a 
paler tip. As in 1st cycle birds, the dark band is uneven, the dark on the 
lower mandible comes farther toward the face than the dark on the upper 
mandible. The bird is slightly smaller than a Herring Gull and has a different 
shape. It is a slim bird with noticeably long wings that give the bird an 
attenuated shape. In flight it has a solidly dark tail with white upper tail 
coverts. The long, slim wings have a hint of a pale inner primary panel. The 
greater coverts are solidly dark, but have pale tips. This gives the upper 
surface of the inner wing the look of two dark parallel panels, one formed by 
the secondaries and another formed by the greater coverts, separated by the 
pale tips of the coverts.

My sister Terese called to say that there are hundreds and hundreds of gannets 
feeding on small baitfish at the mouth of the inlet on an outgoing tide. Anyone 
in the area who wants to witness a great spectacle of nature this is your 
chance. They are feeding between the two jetties so either the north or the 
south entrance will do. In this strong wind from the SE the south jetty might 
be a little drier. 


Take care,  Greg

From: David Hartgrove <birdman9 AT EARTHLINK.NET>

Hi,
 Sometimes blind luck is the best plan. Today, while leading a trip to MINWR 
for the Palm Coast "Birds of a Feather Fest" we stopped at the rest rooms on 
Black Point Wildlife Drive. There have been many photos taken of the Sora that 
has been hanging out in the mangroves along the canal across from the rest 
rooms. Today I searched in vain for the bird but did hear one back along the 
north side of the restrooms. I walked out onto the little covered dock there 
and saw some movement on the east side of it in the mangroves at the water's 
edge. The vegetation is so thick there that while I could see that there was 
something moving there I couldn't see any detail. Two other people from the 
trip came over and were looking too. The bird started to walk along the edge of 
the water behind the mangroves headed north away from the covered dock. So I 
circled around to hopefully drive it back toward the people who were on the 
dock. For them a Sora would be a life bird. The bird suddenly f! 

 lushed and flew west across about 30 feet of open water in clear view of all 3 
of us. It was much smaller than a Sora, plump, almost pear shaped and dark gray 
to black. I did not see any silvery spots but I was so shocked to realize that 
I'd just seen a Black Rail at 11:20 in the morning that I could have missed 
them. Needless to say, for me, it was the bird of the day. Even the bird of the 
year so far!

For me so far on the Refuge I personally haven't seen that much this year. The 
Short-eared Owl hasn't been seen in a while so I guess it moved to another 
area. Yesterday however I did get a little bit of excitement. I saw a Peregrine 
Falcon eating a Pied-billed Grebe it had killed. I was watching it for some 
time when suddenly it got excited, and took off. What happened is a Bald Eagle 
came, and tried to take the Pied-billed Grebe from the Falcon. I think Falcon 
lost it, because he came back attacking the Eagle. The Eagle after the 
Peregrine attack kept looking down as if he was trying to find the Grebe the 
Falcon dropped. I only got a piece of the Falcon attacking the Eagle. Theses 
four pictures are in sequence. It was really cool watching all this happening!

DD Bartell boat ramp, Amelia Island, Nassau County: A lone Western Kingbird
was perched on the retention pond fence ca 10:00 AM this morning. While
moving my truck to obtain a better view of the bird's front, it took flight
and ascended over the maritime forest to the north. I would not anticipate
it returning to the retention pond area. Conversely, it might be found in
Ft. Clinch State Park on power lines crossing the dune/shrub habitat if it
did not continue north into GA. See Flickr link for dorsal image of bird.

This morning, 1/30, I found a Cassin's Kingbird on rt 305 in Flagler County. I 
assume that this is the same bird that has returned for its 4th winter here. 
The bird was on the wires on rt 305 off route 100 about 7 miles west of 
Bunnell. The bird was about 1/4 mile south of the area it used to visit, near 
the home on the west side of rt 305. There was also a huge group of 166 
Black-bellied Plovers and 141 Killdeer in a field on rt 302 just east off rt 
305. There were also many American Pipits with the group.

For those who, like me, find ebird pretty close to pointless for finding
birds
here is a more detailed description of the bird and the location.

The bird was at the feeder area of the eduction campus at Jacksonville Zoo.
From
the entrance proceed straight back to the far end of the parking lot. There
is
a fenced area on the left, a gated road, a picnic area with a mobile home
type
building the the education building to the right. The feeder area is on the
left side
of the building and has grass and small trees but is cleared of small
plants. There is a tree on the corner of the cleared area and next to the
driveway that has greenish fruits on it. The tanager appears to be staying
with the baltimore oriols and they eat this fruit. Look there or in the
larger bare trees next to the building for the orioles and tanager.

reported yesterday on eBird by Tom Rohtsalu. I found the bird pretty
quickly this afternoon in light rain by looking for the Orioles. Bright
yellow undersides with pale flanks, rounded pinkish orange bill very
different from the pointed bills of the orioles she was initially with,
darker back contrasted with nape and rump, two noticeable wing bars;see
photos;very skittish as (uncharacteristically) were the orioles;tanager
initially came in with them but then all tree split up;was seen again later
with the female oriole;tanager briefly was in the tree with the fruit the
orioles eat right next to the driveway in front of the education building.

Photos posted on eBird hopefully this is a link to the checklist with the
photos:

Yesterday evening, 1/26, I found a first cycle Franklin's Gull on the beach at 
Daytona Beach Shores. The bird was about 1/4 mile north of Frank Rendon Park. 
On Sunday, 1/24, I found an Iceland Gull of the Kumlien's race on the beach at 
Daytona Beach Shores. Earlier on 1/24, I led a pelagic trip out of Ponce de 
Leon Inlet and we found a different 1st cycle Iceland Gull that looks like it 
is of the nominate race, "glaucoides" - a true Iceland Gull - and a subspecies 
that has not been reported from Florida. There was also a 1st cycle Glaucous 
Gull. We also have several Pomarine and Parasitic Jaegers as well as loads of 
Northern Gannets around the boat all day. On Saturday, 1/23, I also found a 
good candidate for an adult Lesser Black-backed x Herring Gull hybrid at 
Daytona Beach Shores.

Yesterday 1/25/16 I was in Shiloh. I was leading a party to see the Sharptail 
Sparrows. While there I met 3 men that were looking for the Short-eared Owl. 
They were digscopers. They informed me that the Owl had been seen perching on 
the sign at the barricade. I did not see it nor have I been able to find it in 
3 trips after the last time I saw it. My party and I saw both the Saltmarsh and 
the Nelson's Sparrows. However the birds were very spooky, and not approachable 
as they had been. Probably due to too much pressure put on them. The area's 
count in sparrows is way down to what it had been. 

 My yard birds are gradually coming in now due to the cold weather. I got 3 
pairs of Painted Buntings, and about 50 Chippers... I have one bunting with a 
yellow place on the breast. It really is beautiful. I'm sure it will turn red 
eventually, but it really makes the bird even more beautiful than normal.

Today, 1/18, I found two female Brewer's Blackbirds at Feiser's Dairy in DeLeon 
Springs, Volusia Co. These are surely the same two birds I found on December 
13th. The dairy is private property, but the birds can be seen from Dawson 
Brown Road. The birds are hanging out in the pastures with the cattle, not in 
the large flocks of Brown-headed Cowbirds. Look near the fabric-topped shelters 
out in the field. A scope is needed. 


Yesterday, 1/17, I found the Red-throated Loon again at Tomoka State Park. 
Yesterday, I also found this wing-tagged Black Vulture (TVH).

Sorry for the late post. On Thursday, 1/14, I stopped off for a short stop at 
the St. Marks NWR and found a Cave Swallow at the double dikes near Stony Bayou 
Pool 1. There were also two male Vermilion Flycatchers there and a White-faced 
Ibis in Stony Bayou 2. There was also a Henslow's and LeConte's Sparrows at the 
helipad. 


At sunset I stopped off in Gainvesville and found the 12+ Vaux's Swifts at the 
chimneys on the UF campus.

This morning I arrived around 7 am at Shiloh. Another birder was there, and had 
seen the Short-eared Owl not too long before I drove up. I was lucky enough to 
get another picture of it. Sun just coming up, and light was terrible. So I got 
another ID shot only of it. If anyone wants to see it tonight I believe it has 
roosted in the marsh on the east side of the road. Probably about 100 yards 
east of the gravel parking in the marsh. It landed there, and never got up when 
I left at 10:30 am (as far as I know) I'm pretty sure it's still there 
sleeping, but not positive. I know that the bird is hunting in the Shiloh area.

I went out to Shiloh Marsh at dawn and saw the Short-eared Owl. It was most 
active just before sunrise between 7:00 - 7:15, mostly on the west side of the 
parking area. It flew around once again around a little bit later and 
ultimately landed out of view on the east side.

I went out to Shiloh this afternoon looking for the Short-eared Owl again. I stayed until 5:15 PM, and did not see it. I wanted to stay longer, but I couldn't. However there were other birders there in the parking lot when I left. Maybe they saw it. I guess I'll try again tomorrow. I have a question for the pros out there. Could someone tell me which bird is more rare in Florida - the Great Cormorant or a Short-eared Owl? I'd appreciate any input on it.

This evening, 1/15, I found an all-dark small gull. It appears to be a 
melanistic Laughing Gull. As an extremely rare alternative, it might be a 2nd 
cycle Gray Gull. It was slightly smaller than the nearby Laughing Gulls, the 
bill was very slim and the legs seemed stockier than the Laughing Gulls. I have 
sent photos out to get some opinions.
