Subject: Another Question about Reddish Egret Plumages 8/27/16
From: SUEREDFISH Bales <sueredfish AT MSN.COM>
Date: Sun, 28 Aug 2016 01:54:33 +0000
Since I found the unusual plumage Reddish Egret (for me) I have run across some 
more shots of what I think are Reddish Egret. I took them last year. I assumed 
it was a Reddish Egret phasing into the White Morph form. Now I'm not too sure. 
I've gone online, and into all my bird books, and I can not find the 2 phases 
in question that I have pictures of. Someone also responded to me, and said 
that the Reddish Egret did not nest in my area. I don't believe that is true 
since I have found Reddish Egrets on nest the the northern end of the Banana 
River (no motor zone) on islands off the SRB channel. In these pictures I 
thought that the bird was simply about to turn into the all white form. Now I 
don't know. Appreciate any input. Thank-you

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

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

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

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

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

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

Species List
Cory’s Shearwater 9

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

Hi All,

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

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

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

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

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

---

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

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

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

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

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

http://birding.aba.org/

Instructions at the top.

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

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

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

---

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

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

---

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

Good Birding All!

Hi All,

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

---

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

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

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

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

---

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

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

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

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

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

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

---

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Secretary, FOS Records Committee

From: Michael Brothers <mbrothers AT VOLUSIA.ORG>

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

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

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

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

This afternoon, 6/19, I stopped off at the beach at Ormond-by-the-Sea for a few

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

Yesterday evening, 6/7, I was doing some breeding bird survey work in Flagler 
County and found a dark morph Short-tailed Hawk at Russell Landing at Haw Creek 
Preserve. On Monday, there were two Gull-billed Terns sitting on Disappearing 
Island.

Pelagic Trip Report. May 29, 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


Keep an eye out if you are in the area.  

Best,
Drew

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


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


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


Ebird list will follow later.

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

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

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

Thanks again Florida!

folder on my Box site at: 
https://app.box.com/shared/2yxtdkm3ta 
Video quality should be best when viewing the actual video files (MOV files)

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

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

Good Birding All,

Mark

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

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:

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>
Date: Thu, 24 Mar 2016 23:41:55 -0400
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.

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.

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.

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
