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

 

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

Hey everyone,

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


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

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

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


Good birding,

Subject: 8 Blackburnian Warblers, Osceola County (9/17/14)
From: John Thomton <jthomton AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:45:16 -0500
Hey everyone,

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


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


Good birding,

John Thomton

Hey y'all,

 

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

Hey ya'll,

 

Quick note: Just had an imm. HOFi at the feeder. While they are found in
various parts of the Pinellas County, this is the earliest I have had one at

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

From: Bev Hansen <bevalhansen AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Mon, 8 Sep 2014 05:16:01 -0400
"This just came across a couple of listservs from Scott Weidensaul:

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

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

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

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


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


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

Somehow the complete Flicker link was abbreviated with the initial report.
Hopefully, this one will work.

As I was leaving the Pine Island Conservation Area, about 11:30 this morning, I 
saw this Lark Sparrow ducking around the ground cover before flying up in a 
sapling, just north of and at the main parking area.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello all,

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

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

Happy birding,

I am sure notes and cards would be appreciated.

"Murray,


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

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


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


Lucy Duncan"

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

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

Hey everyone,

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


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

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

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


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


Good birding,

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

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

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

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

From: John Thomton <jthomton AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:58:16 -0500
Hey everyone,

I hit up Leu Gardens today for what was meant to be a quick walk around. It 
became a three hour tour, and the birding wasn't bad either! I got there just 
before 10 AM and left just before 1 PM. It's been fun to have Carolina 
Chickadees at Leu lately. I found my first one ever at Leu (since I started 
birding there in August 2006) during June Challenge, then two when I was there 
on July 31'st. I found two again today. I'm glad my solo friend back in June 
has found a buddy! I hope they are a boy and girl and will have a nice family 
somewhere in the gardens. These last two visits, they have been in the tall oak 
woods in the northeastern side of the gardens (near Lake Rowena) in a large 
mixed flock of landbirds (titmice, vireos, warblers, woodpeckers, etc.). Here 
are the spoils from the walk: 


Wood Duck
Wood Stork
Double-Crested Cormorant
Anhinga
Great Blue Heron
Green Heron
Cooper's Hawk
Barred Owl (2)
Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (1)
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Pileated Woodpecker
Great Crested Flycatcher
Yellow-Throated Vireo (1)
Red-Eyed Vireo (8)
Blue Jay
American Crow
Fish Crow
Carolina Chickadee (2)
Tufted Titmouse
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Brown Thrasher
Northern Waterthrush (1 - thicket area between the Leu House and the closed 
lake overlook) 

Black-and-White Warbler (3)
American Redstart (4)
Northern Parula (8)
Yellow Warbler (1 - in a tree in the parking lot)
Yellow-Throated Warbler (4)
Prairie Warbler (1)
Northern Cardinal
Boat-Tailed Grackle

I also had at least three turtle species, including a softshell and a box 
turtle. Leu Gardens is located near the intersection of US 17/92 (Mills Ave.) 
and Virginia Ave. in northern downtown Orlando, north-central Orange County. 


Good birding,

Hi,
 It turns out that my conjecture as to the origins of the satellite tagged 
Brown Pelican that J W Callis posted on 8/13 were incorrect. Billy Brooks, of 
the USF&W office in Jacksonville, sent me the following information and asked 
that I post it here. Another example of technology helping us monitor bird 
populations. 



The South Carolina Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit tagged 60+ Brown 
Pelicans in FL, TX, and LA during the 2013 and 2014 breeding seasons. All birds 
were breeding adults. Our objective was to determine foraging areas during the 
breeding season, wintering locations as well as migratory paths, associations 
with oil infrastructure in LA and TX, and foraging site fidelity. We deployed 
NorthStar satellite tags as well as Cell tower tags. The satellite tags have 
sloped fronts. All tags were attached using a backpack harness designed for 
pelicans and all tags met the standard Bird Banding Lab requirement, not 
weighing more than 3% of body mass. Even though we know where our birds are, 
observations like this and especially those accompanied with photos are very 
helpful. You can email any observations of photos of tagged birds to me 
atpjodice AT clemson.edu 

 
There is additional information about the project here:

Ten Black Terns were observed on the shorebird survey at Sebastian Inlet State 
Park, south beach halfway between day use and McLarty Museum. 

In one flock there were Royal; Least; Forsters; Black and Sandwich Terns. 
Everywhere we termed we saw terns! There was also a large flock of birds 
feeding way off shore that I could not identify, some tern species for sure, 
but other than that...... Not sure. It was a sight to see though, the fish were 
in a feeding frenzy, so much so they had the water churned up to where you 
could see the water splashing about with the naked eye!

Subject: new park in Jefferson Co
From: Julie Brashears Wraithmell <parulablue AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Wed, 6 Aug 2014 13:59:13 +0000
This past weekend, Andy, Maisie and I got to meet some of the dedicated folks 
who created the new Water Street Park in Monticello (Jefferson Co.). This cool 
little park has some beautiful bottomland forest with  terrific boardwalk 
spans that fly you over a streambed and provide a nice vantage of the canopy. 
These impressive volunteers managed to secure FRDAP grants to acquire the park, 
construct the trails and boardwalks and are now continuing to recruit volunteer 
support to maintain the park and its habitat. Ultimately, they hope it will be 
an outdoor classroom for Jefferson County students as well as tourist visitors 
to the county. 


One way we can support this worthy cause is to help them develop their bird 
list for the site-- we saw some nice birds on our casual (noisy), late 
morning stroll around the trail loop including Mississippi Kite, Yellow-billed 
Cuckoo and Hooded Warbler, and the habitat looks fantastic. If you're looking 
for a new place to explore (or for those rabid county birders, if you need 
to pad your Jefferson Co. list), check out the site and be sure to REPORT YOUR 
SIGHTINGS to EBIRD so that they contribute to the site's bird list. 


An eBird "hotspot" has already been set up for the site: 
http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L3016283 


Water Street Park's entrance is located on the west side of the intersection of 
Seminole and Water streets just south of downtown Monticello in Jefferson 
County. Parking is along the roadside at the entrance; pedestrian access is 
open during daylight hours. The park is <30 acres and there are no facilities. 
The portions of the trail that are not boardwalked are easy but in places may 
be uneven (roots/soft ground but not muddy). 


Congrats and thanks to the dedicated Jefferson County residents who are 
making this gem available to all of us!

Heading in to work this morning I took
a slightly different route than usual which
paid off with a Robin foraging on a
driveway on Park St Between Blanding
and Roosevelt. Still an unusual sight
here in the summer.

Last Sunday on the Road into Hog Pen
Landing on the north side of Ocean Pond
I found two barely post-nestling Acadian
Flycatchers clinging to a branch and
peeping incessantly to be fed. I watched
them for about fifteen minutes while their
parents flew in to stuff something into their
beaks then off again to find more food.
The BBA says that was right at the end
of the safe dates.

You may have been seeing some test messages I have sent prompted by an issue 
with the Bird Brain listserv. I wanted to post this on Florida Birds since it 
appears that there is another related or unrelated issue with this listserv. 
The first messages I sent were dual addressed to both Bird Brain and Florida 
Birds. I sent them from two different accounts. The messages from Florida Birds 
show up online, but were either never received by either of my mail servers or 
blocked by both. I successfully sent and received test messages to Florida 
Birds at both accounts that were individually addressed to Florida Birds only. 
I ran a final dual addressed test message with the order reversed, Florida 
Birds first and Bird Brain second. Again this message shows up online, but was 
either never received or blocked by both mail servers. I checked online at 
Florida Birds and found two recent messages there that I received from Bird 
Brain and not from Florida Birds. I suspect they were dual addressed also. I 
guess the upshot of at least this part of the exercise is do not dual address 
your messages. The list owners for both lists might want to add this to their 
welcome materials and FAQs.

Subject: Clapper Rail split
From: Murray Gardler <mangrovefirst AT TAMPABAY.RR.COM>
Date: Fri, 1 Aug 2014 18:49:53 -0400
For those of you who have birded CA AND COLORADO RIVER OF AZ YOU HAVE A NEW 
LIFER IF YOU OBSERVED CLAPPERS IN THOSE AREAS. 




Clapper Rail Split

Mangrove Rail* (Rallus longirostris)

Ridgway’s Rail (Rallus obsoletus)

Clapper Rail (Rallus crepitans)

Recent genetic studies have looked at the relatedness of the New World “big 
rails”, that is, what we have traditionally known as Clapper Rail and King 
Rail. King Rail was split into two species, and Clapper Rail into three. (For 
an article on the different “Clapper Rails” in the ABA Area, check out the 
Sep/Oct 2013 issue of Birding.) 


Finally, Robert Ridgway has an English bird name to celebrate his storied 
contributions to North American ornithology! Ridgway’s Rail includes the 
“California” (obsoletus), “Yuma” (yumanensis), and “Light-footed” 
(levipes) subspecies, plus others further south in Mexico. Any “Clapper 
Rail” observed in California, Nevada, or Arizona is now this species. 


The name “Clapper Rail” was retained for the birds on the east coast of the 
U.S. (this species also extends partially into Middle America and the 
Caribbean), but its scientific name has changed. 


Mangrove Rail is thought to be restricted to coastal South America.

Subject: Biolab Road & MINWR
From: David Hartgrove <birdman9 AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:52:29 -0400
Hi All,
 July is not the best time for a trip to Merritt Island NWR. The mosquitoes are 
thick and for the most part, the birds are thin, as in not many there. Or so we 
thought when 5 of us from Halifax River Audubon took a drive down there this 
morning. We had fledged young Wild Turkeys along SR 3 on the way in. We drove 
down to SR 402 and entered Canaveral National Seashore to drive in along Biolab 
Road from the south. This allowed a stop at the headquarters building for looks 
at Scrub Jays, Eastern Towhees and the first encounter with the mosquitoes that 
kept us company the rest of the morning. We drove east to Biolab Road and 
turned north. Almost immediately we had a fledged young Loggerhead Shrike 
perched along side the road in a small cabbage palm. There were numerous Snowy 
and Great Egrets, lots of Tricolored Herons, Red-winged Blackbirds and 
Boat-tailed Grackles. We finally got to a spot where we were driving along the 
shoreline of Mosquito Lagoon. The mangroves, castor bean! 

 and other plants block the view in most places but we did get some good looks 
at Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Stilt, Semi-palmated, Least and one or two 
Western Sandpipers. Further along as we drove north we found a Spotted 
Sandpiper and the first Forster's Terns we've seen this season. There were also 
Glossy and White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills, Green Herons and Eastern Meadowlarks 
along the west side of the road and a large, off colored heron we took to be a 
Ward's Heron. I think Chuck Tague got photos. My camera was safe at home. 


 After a quick pause for the cause at the Visitor's Center we drove around 
Black Point. A disappointment except for the 2 Black Terns and the 2 Eastern 
Kingbirds we saw. The water levels are high along Black Point and this bodes 
well for this winter. Last year was the worst at MINWR that I can remember, due 
for the most part to the salinity of the water being out of balance thanks to 
last summer's prolonged drought. Last winter, in all my trips to MINWR, I saw 
just one American Coot. Where usually the rafts of coots are too numerous to 
count. Let's hope they return in numbers this year. Their presence seems to 
mean more ducks and other water fowl.

Well, I only saw four STKI but what a treat is was. It was a family group 
soaring over Holly Point Rd in Orange Park at 0915 today 07/20.. I first 
heard them. The young were in full voice. The street parallels the St Johns 
River and we often see them there. My husband thinks there have been fewer 
Kites this year but a friend from across the river thinks there have been more 
there. 

  
Strangely all the tails looked about the same length. 
  
Good birding to all.

Hi All,

 

My husband and I took a boat ride over to Stump Pass this morning, and saw
our first-of-the-season Spotted Sandpiper on the rocks of our subdivision
and the ICW. While at Stump Pass Beach State Park, we located an American
Oystercatcher in with the Least Tern colony, five Wilson's Plovers, and a
Western Sandpiper, as the more notable shorebirds. On the return trip, we
saw a few spread-out kettles of Magnificent Frigatebirds riding the thermals
above Lemon Bay.

 

Best,

Susan Daughtrey

From: Susan Daughtrey <susansd AT COMCAST.NET>

Hi All, 

 

The Englewood birders were at the Central County Solid Waste Disposal
Complex, locally known as the Laurel Landfill, in Sarasota County today, and
located a pair of Purple Gallinules. These were the first Purple Gallinules
any of us had seen at this location before. They were in the pickerelweed
and alligator flag at the very start of the lake across from the R/C Model
Airplane field. Our total species count for the day was 47, and other
notable birds besides the PUGA were one Roseate Spoonbill in with a large
group of Wood Storks, a Red-headed Woodpecker flycatching from a barbed wire
fence, two singing Bachman's Sparrows, and a male Northern Bobwhite calling
continuously from a pine limb about 15 feet off the ground. Hot, but very
enjoyable, morning.

 

Best,

Susan Daughtrey

Vicktor Nilsson has kindly cleared up the mystery of the incorrect time stamp

Hi Dotty,
I saw your post on tropical Audubon about the timing of the discovery of the 
red-necked stint. I can't recreate what you did to get that erroneous time 
stamp from the photo off twitter, but I checked the time stamps on the original 
photos I took with my phone that morning to recreate a time line. The time 
stamps on the original photos are fine. Please pass on this information to 
those interested. Between approximately 4:30 and 06:00 we searched for 
Antillean nighthawks around Key West airport and community college.At 06:24, we 
were watching two displaying Antillean nighthawks at the beginning of Boca 
Chica road. We then made a few brief stops to search for mangrove cuckoos on 
our way down to the beach. At 06:56 I have a photo of a Wilson's plover taken 
when we had just arrived to Boca Chica beach. This was one of the first birds 
we saw at the beach (and a lifer for me!). Then at 07:38 I have the first, 
blurry photo of the red-necked stint. This is just minutes after the discovery. 
We then watched the bird until we had to leave to get breakfast and coffee at - 
I think - around 9am. I attach the details taken straight from the first photo 
I took.Cheers, 

Viktor Hi Viktor, Thanks so much for your response. Great to hear from you--you 
are the hero of the week, for sure! I appreciate the clarification, and will 
pass it along. The confusion was caused by the time stamp at the bottom of your 
photo on Twitter: https://twitter.com/loxocera/status/489391589148884993 I'm 
not sure where that incorrect time came from, but it raised some questions in 
my mind, since it would have been dark at 5:50am! Your knowledge that this was 
a very rare bird here, and your speed at getting the word out are very much 
appreciated. This was a fantastic find, and well worth the 1077 miles I drove 
to see it! I think I can speak for the birding community by saying if you need 
any bird info while you are here, please let us know. Thanks, 

Dotty Robbins

 Puzzling and interesting: I think it's been said/assumed that the Stint was 
first sighted around 8am on Wednesday, July 16. But the original photo, posted 
by Viktor Nilsson to Twitter, shows a time stamp of 5:50am, 16 July. If that's 
true, Viktor must have seen the bird on July 15. But perhaps the 5:50am isn't 
EST? https://twitter.com/loxocera/status/489391589148884993 Hopefully Viktor 
will submit to the FOSRC, with details of time, etc. Dotty Robbins

Some movement out the window caught my attention

Hi all,

 

               Well, I made my usual neighborhood walk this morning and did
not find any Yellow Warblers, but there was some compensation, a big billed,
yellow undersided bird with an olive/gray head and notched tail on an
exposed perch in a neighbor's yard - a Tropical/Couch's Kingbird! As usual,
it did not call. This is the 11th local record of the complex, along with
one Tropical and one Couch's. July is looking good for birding thus far!

               Two immature or female Black & White Warblers and a
Yellow-throated Warbler showed up at our pond late today, somewhat on
schedule. Our first B & W occurred July 2 in the period 2010 to present, so
it was not particularly early, the Yellow-throated was early by 2 days for
that period (our records go back over 40 yrs, but I am too lazy to ferret
them out at the moment). So a trickle of migrants can be expected from now
on. Oddly, Yellow Warblers are usually the first fall migrants to appear.
Maybe tomorrow.

Today, 7/5, I was surprised to find a lone early Cliff Swallow with a small 
group of Barn Swallows. This is the earliest Cliff Swallow I have seen in this 
area. The bird was feeding over the agricultural fields on rt 15 just south of 
rt 100, about 7 miles west of Bunnell in Flagler County.

Interesting note about Wood ducks. Black-bellied whistling ducks are 
notoriously late nesters but I had not heard of Wood ducks nesting this late in 
the year. 


Florida's extended growing season offers many species an opportunity to raise 
second or even third broods.

Interesting Bob. Yesterday, I observed a large flock of fish crows milling
aloft and drifting south over Amelia. I thought this rather odd for the
season. Doubtless, some arctic-breeding shorebirds are already winging south
as we communicate and will soon be sighted on Florida shores.

Hi all,

 

This morning there were 12 Orchard Orioles feeding on Sand Grapes in my
neighborhood where they do not breed. Traditionally, they and Yellow
Warblers are the first fall migrants to appear. They were a day early
compared to other years going back to 2010, possibly as a result of the
front that eked through and brought unseasonably cool and dry weather here
in the western Panhandle. I also heard a warbler call note overhead and
there was a skulker in our yard. After a dull birding summer, a pleasant
surprise.

Hi,

 

               A Louisiana Waterthrush was reported in Pensacola yesterday,
either a very early migrant or a straggler from spring migration. They have
bred in the area near the Alabama line.

Subject: Roseate Tern. Disappearing Island. Volusia Co.
From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Fri, 27 Jun 2014 21:32:36 -0400
Today, 6/27, I was part of a crew working on building a better barrier around 
the Least Tern colony on Disappearing Island. I was scanning the nearby group 
of 220 Least Terns, 64 Royal Terns, 40 Sandwich Terns and 3 Common Terns when I 
found another (one of the same?) Roseate Tern on Disappearing Island, Ponce de 
Leon Inlet, Volusia County. This time the bird allowed much closer approach. In 
the photos, you can see the very long tail, long all black bill with some 
slight reddish at the base of the bill, reddish-orange legs and in flight the 
tail showed no dark outer web in the outer tail feathers (as in Common and 
Arctic Tern) and no dark inner webs on the tail feathers (as in Forster's 
Tern). Also note the very little contrast between the white tail and rump and 
the pale gray of the back. 


On another note some birds are beginning to be on the move. Wednesday morning 
there was a group of 18 White Pelicans on Disappearing Island at dawn. Also, a 
few days ago, a flock of 20 Black-necked Stilts flew south down the Halifax 
River at the Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange, Volusia Co.

Learning how to ID bird species is the big mountain we all 
Greetings,

Learning how to ID bird species is the big mountain we all have to climb as 
beginners. Once we get a grip on the basics and pass that novice stage and 
maybe the intermediate stage, some of us like to have a hobby within the hobby, 
and mine is a "study of minutiae", or just staring and studying bird details 
and comparing differences, all for the simple joy of being awed by the beauty 
of birds. 


Differences from one bird of a species to the next can be from normal 
variation, differences among subspecies, age, sex, feather wear, different molt 
cycles, or what is fun to find--anomalies. I think I might have an anomaly 
with a juvenile Short-tailed Hawk that I will post in a day or two after 
further research. 


In some cases, you can contribute to science. The Short-tailed Hawk is a great 
example. Search the web and you can't find a decent number of quality photos 
for detailed study. They are very poorly studied. In my Short-tailed Hawk 
example, I may have a deviation from the norm that--who knows--may help rewrite 
some plumage descriptions of the future. I don'tknow how many specimens are 
in museums but the fact is current descriptions are based on very small 
samples. 


Linked belowis a collage of a juvenile and an adult Red-shouldered Hawk. Even 
in a species that could be very well studied, it is still hard to find complete 
detail. BNA Online offers one of the most complete descriptions of appearance, 
but still there are differences not mentioned. 


The juvenile on the left was seen today at Wekiwa Springs State Park. The 
adult is a February 2013 example from Circle B Bar Reserve. Descriptions below 
are from my images of the facial area with BNA notes following. 


Cere ... yellow in the adult, greenish-yellow, especially at topin juvenile. 
BNA has a perfect match of my description. 


Bill ... smoke gray in adult; in juvenile, dark blue with lighter blue at the 
base. BNA states the adult bill is black and hatching it is black. No mention 
of immature. 


Lore ... same color as much of the facial area in the adult. The juvenile 
shows a bluish/gray lore. BNA does not mention the lore. 


Iris ... dark brown in the adult, gray in the juvenile. BNA states adult dark 
brown, juvenile pale to medium gray-brown. 


Auricular, throat, crownand nape... note the differences. 

Most bird guides don't mention these as they are designed to skip detail. This 
is just the face I'm comparing to. For a perched RSHA, the leg and feet color 
show difference, tail, breast, et al. The lesser coverts are just coming in on 
the juvenile for the red shoulder patch and will change through October. I 
assume this juvenile is a AHY, (or after hatch year hawk, born last year, not 
this year). The experts might want to correct that if I am wrong. 


I'm sure just a small percentage of birders really study detail, the hunt to 
see species is the challenge that most prefer. I like the hunt also but it 
must be the beauty of birds that draws me to gawk and stare and study. I made 
a decision not to ever get the books by Pyle because I choose NOT to become an 
expert in plumage. I fear if I ever do become an expert in plumage, my desire 
to gawk and stare and study their beauty will diminish.

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>
Date: Mon, 23 Jun 2014 15:04:00 -0400
Today, 6/23, we were conducting a survey of the Least Tern colony on 
Disappearing Island, Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia County. In scanning through 
the other birds on Disappearing Island, I found two terns that I first thought 
were Common Terns. Something spooked all the birds and when the birds flew I 
saw that these birds had extremely long tails and were very pale. The birds 
landed and although the distance was great, I could see that the bills were all 
dark and very thin and long. The tails were extremely long and stuck out far 
beyond the tips of the folded wings. While they were preening, I could also see 
that the tail had no dark outer border (as in Common and Arctic Terns) and also 
no dark inner border (as in Forster's Tern). The legs were an orange-red. There 
was a small amount of reddish color at the base of the bill. In all of my years 
birding Volusia County, I have never seen Roseate Terns here, although we had a 
small group once far offshore.

Greetings,

Earl Hornand I had some nice sightings todayinLake County.

Tree Swallow ... eBird does not show a Tree Swallow ever recorded in June 
inland in the greater Orlando area and surrounding counties. Nearest sightings 
in June are Charles Geanangel in Polk County in1998 and Lloyd Davis at Newnans 
Lake, Alachua County June 2013. 


Lesser Scaup ... as above, eBird does not show a Lesser Scaup inland in June in 
this area mentioned above. Nearest sighting was Charles Geanangel, once again, 
in Polk County June 2000. Earl and I waited long enough watching this duck, 
eventually allowing me to get a photo as it spread its wing so we could 
separate it from the Greater Scaup.

--Hairy Woodpecker: Savage/Christmas C
Greetings John and everyone,

--Hairy Woodpecker: Savage/Christmas Creek Preserve has some habitat like Hal 
Scott but seems to have more variability in habitats. I saw a Hairy there 
before I started using eBird. That could be anOrange County location to try. 


--RCWO: I went to Hal Scott with a few friends earlier in the year for the 
first time. We took the north section of the White Loop Trail west from the 
parking to the Red Loop Trail and did a small part of that, then took the west 
side of the White Loop trail then south side of the White Trail back to 
parking. The only place we saw marked trees were on the west side of the White 
Loop Trail and I believe there were only three trees. 


Can RCWO marked treesbe seen on the Yellow Trail? If so, what part of the 
trail? The Red trail did not look like RCWO habitat but we only went a small 
distance on it. Does the Red trail have RCWO marked trees? 


A link to the map is attached.

Hey everyone,

I'm doing the June Challenge for Orange County, my first since 2011. Today I 
hit Hal Scott Preserve, the only place that I know of in the county that's 
somewhat reliable for Hairy and Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers and Eastern Kingbird. 
The RCW's put on a good show, but the other two were awol this morning. I 
don't know why Eastern Kingbird is so difficult to find in Orange County during 
the summer. I remember back in 2007 that they were fairly common in May at Hal 
Scott. In 2010 I had one on the fence of the parking area for my first June 
Challenge, but then in 2011 I couldn't find any - however I had a nice pair of 
Hairy Woodpeckers right along the trail that year. I sort-of started a June 
Challenge in 2012, and I had an Eastern Kingbird fly over me just west of the 
Econlockhatchee River bridge. Hmmm... I'm thinking I'll have to get back to 
Hal Scott before the end of the month. I'd think there would be Eastern 
Kingbirds breeding around 

 Lake Apopka, but I've never found any around there during previous June 
Challenges. 


Anyway, my list stands at 80 species, a couple of which (Acadian Flycatcher, 
Prothonotary Warbler) are making their June Challenge debut. I have yet to 
bird Orlando Wetlands Park or the Lake Apopka area. I'm hoping to crack 100 
species, but we'll see. Today I probably hiked around 6 miles total at Hal 
Scott. I took the southern part of the White Trail back to the Yellow Trail, 
on which I took the northern half-loop (using the cut-through trail that's not 
on the trail maps but is totally walkable). Even though I missed some of my 
targets, birds were very active all morning. I ended up recording: 


Northern Bobwhite (6)
Wild Turkey
Green Heron
White Ibis
Black Vulture
Turkey Vulture
Swallow-Tailed Kite (1)
Red-Shouldered Hawk
Killdeer
Mourning Dove
Common Ground-Dove
Yellow-Billed Cuckoo (1 - new for June Challenge 2014!)

Brown Thrasher
Northern Mockingbird
Common Yellowthroat
Northern Parula
Pine Warbler
Eastern Towhee
Bachman's Sparrow (I recorded 23 on eBird, but it was likely more; new for June 
Challenge 2014!) 

Northern Cardinal
Eastern Meadowlark (new for June Challenge 2014!)

Hal Scott Preserve is located south of SR-50, west of SR-520, north of SR-528 
(the Beachline) and east of the Avalon Park area in southeastern Orange 
County. The main entrance is off of Dallas Blvd. 


Good birding,

Subject: June Challenge Update: Hal Scott Preserve (6/11/14) - Orange Co.
From: John Thomton <jthomton AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 11 Jun 2014 13:54:47 -0500
Hey everyone,

I'm doing the June Challenge for Orange County, my first since 2011. Today I 
hit Hal Scott Preserve, the only place that I know of in the county that's 
somewhat reliable for Hairy and Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers and Eastern Kingbird. 
The RCW's put on a good show, but the other two were awol this morning. I don't 
know why Eastern Kingbird is so difficult to find in Orange County during the 
summer. I remember back in 2007 that they were fairly common in May at Hal 
Scott. In 2010 I had one on the fence of the parking area for my first June 
Challenge, but then in 2011 I couldn't find any - however I had a nice pair of 
Hairy Woodpeckers right along the trail that year. I sort-of started a June 
Challenge in 2012, and I had an Eastern Kingbird fly over me just west of the 
Econlockhatchee River bridge. Hmmm... I'm thinking I'll have to get back to Hal 
Scott before the end of the month. I'd think there would be Eastern Kingbirds 
breeding around Lake Apopka, but I've never found any around there during 
previous June Challenges. 


Anyway, my list stands at 80 species, a couple of which (Acadian Flycatcher, 
Prothonotary Warbler) are making their June Challenge debut. I have yet to bird 
Orlando Wetlands Park or the Lake Apopka area. I'm hoping to crack 100 species, 
but we'll see. Today I probably hiked around 6 miles total at Hal Scott. I took 
the southern part of the White Trail back to the Yellow Trail, on which I took 
the northern half-loop (using the cut-through trail that's not on the trail 
maps but is totally walkable). Even though I missed some of my targets, birds 
were very active all morning. I ended up recording: 


Northern Bobwhite (6)
Wild Turkey
Green Heron
White Ibis
Black Vulture
Turkey Vulture
Swallow-Tailed Kite (1)
Red-Shouldered Hawk
Killdeer
Mourning Dove
Common Ground-Dove
Yellow-Billed Cuckoo (1 - new for June Challenge 2014!)
Common Nighthawk
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Red-Cockaded Woodpecker (3: 2 foraging, 1 heard calling from a nest hole)
Pileated Woodpecker
Great Crested Flycatcher
Loggerhead Shrike
White-Eyed Vireo
Red-Eyed Vireo
Blue Jay
Fish Crow
Purple Martin
Tufted Titmouse
Brown-Headed Nuthatch (at least 11)
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Eastern Bluebird
Brown Thrasher
Northern Mockingbird
Common Yellowthroat
Northern Parula
Pine Warbler
Eastern Towhee
Bachman's Sparrow (I recorded 23 on eBird, but it was likely more; new for June 
Challenge 2014!) 

Northern Cardinal
Eastern Meadowlark (new for June Challenge 2014!)

Hal Scott Preserve is located south of SR-50, west of SR-520, north of SR-528 
(the Beachline) and east of the Avalon Park area in southeastern Orange County. 
The main entrance is off of Dallas Blvd. 


Good birding,

Orlando, FL (Orange Co.)
