Dear All,Someone sent me photos recently she said were taken in Polk County 
that depicted Palm Warblers with deformed beaks. I have read about problems 
recently with other species, but wasn't sure if the problem, if there is one, 
is affecting more species. Tom Palmer

Subject: Blitzing for Blackbirds: Year 2 of the Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz
From: "ckatthyr AT hotmail.com [FlaBirding]" <FlaBirding-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 11 Feb 2015 08:05:10 -0800
Have you heard a squeaky-hinge song lately, or seen a flash of rust-tipped 
feathers under a bright yellow eye? Although occasionally overlooked as “just 
another blackbird,” Rusty Blackbirds face an unfortunate and remarkable 
notoriety: this species has endured a decline more severe than that of any 
other once-common landbird. In 2014, the International Rusty Blackbird Working 
Group, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Vermont 
Center for Ecostudies, eBird, and many other state, federal, and local 
partners, launched a three-year Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz that 
challenged birders to scour the landscape for Rusty Blackbirds during this 
species’ northward migration. Between 1 March and 15 June, 4750 birders 
submitted 13,400 checklists containing Rusty Blackbird observations to eBird, a 
hugely successful first season that has allowed us to start looking at 
potential Rusty Blackbird migratory hotspots, habitat use, and potential 
migratory pathways. 

  
 We hope you’ll consider participating in Year 2 of the Blitz this spring! 
It’s easy- bird as you normally do during the Blitz window (1 March through 
15 June) and submit your data to eBird using the “Rusty Blackbird Spring 
Migration Blitz” observation type. To help you figure out when Rusties might 
be passing through your area, each region is assigned a set of target dates 
found here: 
http://rustyblackbird.org/outreach/migration-blitz/states-and-dates/ 
http://rustyblackbird.org/outreach/migration-blitz/states-and-dates/ We’re 
collecting Blitz data from anywhere within our target states and provinces, but 
this year, we’d also like birders to revisit Areas of Interest identified 
from 2014 data to assess the consistency of Rusty Blackbird habitat use and 
migratory timing. Check out our map of Areas of Interest for 2015 at 
http://rustyblackbird.org/outreach/migration-blitz/2015-areas-of-interest/ 

  
 To learn more about Rusty Blackbirds and the Blitz effort, please visit our 
Migration Blitz website (http://rustyblackbird.org/outreach/migration-blitz/ 
http://rustyblackbird.org/outreach/migration-blitz/), or check out our Blitz 
Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/rustyblackbirdspringblitz 
https://www.facebook.com/rustyblackbirdspringblitz). 

  
 We hope you’ll join us to Blitz for Blackbirds this spring!

Subject: Ani, chestnut-sided (and lark sparrow) at Fort deSoto Park
From: "silverwolf.lupinewilderness AT hotmail.com [FlaBirding]" <FlaBirding-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 14 Jan 2015 17:14:21 -0800
Hello all,
 I took a trip down to Fort de Soto County Park this afternoon. I arrived at 
just after 12pm. I spent a while discussing the ani with a few birders there, 
though none of us were sure where the actual sighting area was. 

 

 Around 2pm I heard the bird singing and saw it briefly on the top of the 
tallest tree along the coastal path heading south. I found it again on the left 
side of the path (=east), and it sat there for a good 6 minutes preening and 
calling a good 6 feet away right in the open. The coordinates of the bird were 
27.630797, -82.736792. I managed to get a few others onto the bird and they 
were pleased. The bird gave its odd whistle call, though not too loud so make 
sure you listen carefully if you are in the area. It gradually moved south as 
we watched it. 

 

 For future records, the dirt arrows are not in the dirt paths near the car 
park but in the white sandy/dirt path that is parallel to the coast. There are 
two arrows, one further north that points to the white-crowned sparrow spot 
(the low bushes with red berries) and the one further south for the ani. My ani 
sighting was about 30 feet north of the ani arrow (and a good 300 feet south of 
the white-crowned sparrow arrow). I suggest taking a GPS/iPhone and matching my 
coordinates if you don't want to spend a while walking in circles like we all 
did! 

 

 While watching the ani I photographed it next to a lark sparrow, which I 
didn't realize was unusual being an ignorant California birder. A couple of 
birders said the white-crowned sparrows were around though I didn't see them 
with a quick look over and moved off to the chestnut-sided warbler. 

 

 I then ventured to the north side of North Beach. I found it by following palm 
warbler calls to a mixed warbler flock. In this flock I found pine, palm, 
myrtle and black-and-white warbler. The last bird in the flock I checked 
flashed its yellow wing bars as it took off and I knew I had the bird. 
Fortunately it didn't fly too far and then rejoined the tree. The bird is quite 
strikingly dark grey from underneath, different from the subtle tones of the 
others warblers (it is also unmarked underneath unlike myrtle and palm). It 
isn't too shy so views of the yellow wing bars and green cap should not be 
difficult. This bird was located at 27.643804, -82.739728 but does seem to move 
between trees sometimes. Follow the palms and myrtles if in doubt!

   Hello all,A visiting birder from California here on Day 2 of my eastern 
adventure! 

I visited Jenkins Creek Park (and Linda across the road) yesterday evening for 
my first Florida birding outing and encountered a small blackbird with the 
grackles along the fishing pier. To me it looked like a classic Brewer's 
blackbird, though I've been advised they are very rare in Florida so it 
probably isn't one.  

Either way, putting it out there. I suppose rusty would be more likely but I'm 
sure it lacks the critical features for that species. Would also be incredibly 
improbable to find a rarity on day 1 but it wouldn't be the first time... 

Some quick photos for consideration, it flew off quickly so no more I'm afraid.

Subject: Blackbird sp., Jenkin's Creek Park

Hello all,
 A visiting birder from California here on Day 2 of my eastern adventure!
 

 I visited Jenkins Creek Park (and Linda across the road) yesterday evening for 
my first Florida birding outing and encountered a small blackbird with the 
grackles along the fishing pier. To me it looked like a classic Brewer's 
blackbird, though I've been advised they are very rare in Florida so it 
probably isn't one. 

 

 Either way, putting it out there. I suppose rusty would be more likely but I'm 
sure it lacks the critical features for that species. Would also be incredibly 
improbable to find a rarity on day 1 but it wouldn't be the first time... 

 

 Some quick photos for consideration, it flew off quickly so no more I'm 
afraid.

Subject: Female Ruddy Duck at Viera Wetlands
From: "'smljay12 AT att.net' smljay12@att.net [FlaBirding]" <FlaBirding-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

Happy New Year all!

This afternoon I decided to check out the Viera Wetlands, aka Ritch  
Grissom Memorial Wetlands, and was not disappointed.  Wound up with  
32 species and a definite highlight was coming across a female RUDDY  
DUCK near the NW corner of Cell 3.  This is at the far end of the  
first, long straightaway, turn the corner, and turn left down between  
the cells.  The Ruddy was on the right, 20-30 ft down I guess (before  
the bench) where there is a bit less vegetation, and there were a few  
Common Gallinules or Coots nearby.

As long as you're driving along that southern straightaway, look for  
an area of lower grass height after the 1st road to the left, and  
just before there are several small groupings of palm snags. I found  
about 20 WILSON'S SNIPE in an area the size of a good-sized living  
room!  And they were out where they were well visible too.  I had  
stopped to look at a few waders and noticed a snipe, then another and  
started counting.  Further on are several flocks of Ring-necked  
ducks, and yes, coots... lots and lots of coots.

roughly across the road from the Ruddy Duck, were a handful of Hooded  
Mergansers.  Other ducks seen were 3 female N. Shovelers and a  
scattering of Blue-winged Teal.

Had a lone Limpkin in the vegetation on the SW corner of Cell 3 as I  
went around the 2nd time to get the outside of the complex.   
Otherwise pretty much the usual suspects.

Quite a few Sandhill Cranes in the sod fields; but no Caracara today.

As you leave the area, just north on Stadium Rd/Pkw there is a pond  
with several White Pelicans, lots of cormorants and wading birds.  Be  
aware there is no good place to pull off, but you can get decent  
views of the pond from the road just south of it.

This particular Blue Heron has developed trust in me. It allows me to  
approach closely. Yesterday it curled up like a pet cat right near me in my 
back 

 yard. That's something you don't see too often from a Blue Heron.

Subject: Access to River Lakes Conservation Area
From: "David Simpson simpsondavid AT mac.com [FlaBirding]" <FlaBirding-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Wed, 10 Sep 2014 03:32:42 +0000 (GMT)
I visited River Lakes Conservation Area (the St. John's River Water Management 
District property west of Viera Wetlands and the Click Ponds) today. I had a 
conversation with a couple Brevard County Sherriffs about some recent issues in 
this area. They asked me to pass on some wisdom to the birding community. So 
here it is in a nutshell: 


1) The road is private, not public
2) There is an easement for public access to River Lakes Conservation Area
3) The easement does not allow for vehicles to stop along the way.
4) Duda Ranch can revoke this easement.
5) The gate at the east end (by the Click Ponds) closes at 7PM.
6) It doesn't matter if you don't understand or agree with the above, because 
you don't own the property and don't get to make decisions as to how it is used 
(my words, not theirs.) 


There have been problems lately with people stopping and trespassing (and 
poaching) from the road. A common practice of poachers is to drop someone off 
on the road then pick them up later after they have done their thing. The 
ranch workers don't have time to track down people who are stopping along the 
road to see if they are up to no good. Also, people have been out at the end 
of the road at 7PM when the east gate closes. The ranch owners or St. Johns 
staff then end up fielding calls from people wanting to be let out. It's not 
their job to handle people being locked in, it is your responsibility to be all 
the way out by 7PM. 


The Sherriffs don't want to have to write up trespass tickets and Duda Ranch 
does not necessary want to revoke the easement, but it may come to that if 
people continue to abuse the privilege of driving this road.

Subject: Sooty Shearwater and Smooth-billed Ani [1 Attachment]

I had to go downtown today for an appointment, after that my son Philip 
and I headed over to Crandon Beach. We were hoping for some shorebirds 
or gulls for the June Challenge. We got some gulls and terns but no 
shorebirds. We walked down near lifeguard tower "lucky number 13" to 
look into the roped off area for shorebirds and terns. None there at all 
so I decided to scope offshore. The first bird I get on was about 200 
yards out and is a Sooty Shearwater! A lifer for my son and a state and 
county bird for me! At that same time looking at the shearwater as it 
was heading south, Rangel sent a text about a Smooth-billed Ani.

This bird was seen at the Nature Center at the north part of Crandon 
Beach (south of Miami on Key Biscayne). We got into the car and drove 
over to North Beach by the Nature Center and parked. We spent a little 
time looking around the west side of the building by the employee 
parking. After about 30-minutes we heard the bird calling. My son Philip 
spotted the ani in a tree near the boardwalk that leads north of the 
Nature Center and comes down to ground level. We got good looks at it 
and left to try and beat the traffic heading back home.

It is a shame that I grew up seeing Smooth-billed Anis and now they have 
become so rare that it is exciting to see one. They are still very 
common in the West Indies, just not in Florida any more!

On Monday my son and I tried to see the Neotropic Cormorant, the wind 
and rain were bad. We looked at 3:30 p.m. but did not see it or any 
other cormorants. On Tuesday we arrived at 1:00 p.m. and had the bird 
across the pond perched with a Double-crested Cormorant on some small 
trees. As we were getting photos, David arrived and got good looks 
through our scope. There were three Double-crested Cormorants and the 
Neotropic Cormorant which is an adult in breeding plumage!  I have 
attached a photo from Tuesday.

I took the family to Key Largo to visit a friend and to have some lunch. 
After lunch we came back my way of 905 and Card Sound Road. We turned 
left at the T-intersection to head towards the toll booth which is about 
3-miles from this spot on Card Sound road. On the right side or north 
side of the road about 200-300 yards from the T-intersection is a pond, 
there is a small half acre size Mangrove Island. On a branch in the 
water just north of this were perched two cormorants. One was a 
Neotropic and the other was a Double-crested Cormorant. This was a neat 
sighting as I saw both birds while driving and told my wife and son that 
it sure looked like a Neotropic Cormorant back there. I had to make a 
u-turn and go back to look, sure enough it was one!

If you are coming from the toll booth heading east towards Ocean Reef 
and north Key Largo, go about 3-miles. Just before the T-intersection is 
a sign that says 905 with an arrow left and an arrow right. Park here, 
the cormorant was on the left side or north side. The pull off here is 
very narrow so there is not a lot of room to park, there are guard rails 
on both sides of the road. There also is a lot of traffic here so you 
have to be careful. The photo I posted was using my phone through my 
binoculars. It is not the best but that is all that we had. We saw the 
bird at 3:30 p.m., I went back at 4:30 with a better camera and lens but 
could not relocate it.   I have attached a photo.

From: <xochristyt3 AT gmail.com>
Date: 26 Apr 2014 06:33:52 -0700
Not sure what happened to my last post regarding the mangrove cuckoo.... It has 
been seen daily between 7:15am -10am and 5pm-8pm in the back of the parking lot 
in Biscayne National Park. If you drive to the back of the parking lot you will 
see a travel trailer, look to the left hand side. You will hear it before you 
see it. 

 

 Also, a common nighthawk has been seen roosting in a white mangrove tree 
during the day. Last time it was seen was last night around 8pm. 

 

 I will be in the visitor's center all afternoon today and tomorrow if anyone 
would like more information.

My husband and I are volunteers and live in an RV at Biscayne. For the past few 
days a mangrove cuckoo has made appearances in the morning around 7:30am-10am 
and again in the afternoon around 6-7pm. If you are interested in seeing this 
magnificent and elusive bird, Biscayne opens its gate at 7am. It is usually 
seen behind my RV in the back of the main parking lot. Good luck!

Date: Fri, 11 Apr 2014 13:35:04 -0400
What: Florida Ornithological Society semi-annual meeting
When: May 16-18
Where: Silver Springs - Ocala region
More info: http://fosbirds.org/

Join us for an inexpensive weekend of birding, field trips, informative
presentations, and contribute your expertise to teams working on the
Breeding Bird Atlas project! You don't have to be an expert birder, by any
means, to be part of a BBA team doing a count-route around Ocala. You'll
quicken your birding-by-ear skills with other experienced team members and
learn how to confirm breeding status of Florida's native birds.

We'll have a guided trip on Saturday morning led by a Scrub-Jay biologist
for those not wanting to join a BBA team. Learn all about the life history
and habitat of Florida's only endemic bird species while you watch the
Jays. Silver Springs glass-bottom boat trips are available for all and
provide a great way to bring along family members.

We will have some great presentations from experts on Red-cockaded
Woodpeckers, Florida Grasshopper Sparrow, Brown-headed Nuthatches, and
Florida Scrub-Jays - with plenty of photos!
We'll also have good food and the beer & wine are included in our
inexpensive registration fee. Dinners are buffet-style with two entree
choices.

Meet new and old friends and see some of the beautiful habitat and birds in
Marion County!

In April 1896, a flock of American passenger pigeons was discovered nesting in 
a forest outside Bowling Green, Ohio. Once the most ubiquitous bird in North 
America, the passenger pigeon had shrunk from countless billions to this single 
of flock of 250,000. News of the find was telegraphed across the country, 
drawing hundreds of visitors to the area.

Hi,

The bait fishing behavior is considered as rare.
For an example, see this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntOmfO_sHjQ

I'm a french ornithologist and I'm trying to collect available observations of 
this behavior in birds. 

In particular, I'm looking for observations of bait fishing Green Herons.

My purpose is to better estimate the frequency of this behavior.

If you have personnaly observed or know somebody who have observed such a 
behavior, could you get in touch with me in private? 


Thank you by advance for your help.
Best regards,

Michel Antoine Réglade
(Toulouse, France).

I'm new to this group - and am a birder based in the UK. Later this year I will 
be visiting Kissimmee on business and I am interested in knowing where the best 
birding opportunities are. My visits will be in September and November. 


 I have picked up a Kissimmee tourism brochure which lists some sites under 
"birding, hiking and biking". I expect they are mainly hiking and biking sites, 
but can any of you advise me? And in addition where else do you suggest in the 
immediate area? 

 

 Their suggested list is:
 

 Bull Creek Wildlife Management Area
 Camp Lonesome Conservation Area
 Lake Runnymede Conservation Area
 Makinson Island
 The Nature Conservancy's Disney Wilderness Preserve
 Peghorn Nature Park and Trail
 Prairie Lakes Wildlife Management Area
 Ralph V. Chisholm Park
 St. Cloud Lakefront Park
 Shingle Creek Regional Park - Babb Landing
 Shingle Creek Regional Park-St. Clair
 Shingle Creek Regional Park - Steffee Homestead
 Shingle Creek Regional Park - Steffee Landing
 Southport Regional Park
 Split Oak Forest Mitigation Park
 Triple N Ranch Wildlife Management
 Twin Oaks Conservation Area

 Best wishes

The Cassin's Kingbird was present this afternoon and perhaps in the 
morning but I did not check. I took this photograph about 4:00 p.m. 
today. The kingbird/flycatcher flock has grown! I have now counted at 
the roost area, 27-Western Kingbird, 1-Cassin's Kingbird and 
7-Scissor-tailed Flycatcher including a long tailed bird. Birders are 
welcomed to come by to try their luck, my address:  20313 s.w. 322 st. 
Homestead.  Park on the grass left of my driveway, there is no need to 
knock.  The best times again are from about 7:30 a.m. to about 8:30 a.m. 
and then again from about 4:00/4:30 p.m. to about 5:00/5:30 p.m. This 
would be at my house. The roost area located on s.w. 328 st. which is a 
dirt road, it is 2/10 of a mile west of s.w. 202 ave. on s.w. 328 st. 
This is below the high wires next to a tomato field. The birds roost in 
a clump of Bamboo south of s.w. 328 st. They start arriving here around 
5:30 p.m. and go to roost about 7:00 p.m.

Subject: BAHAMA MOCKINGBIRD: R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve (Miami-Dade) [3 Attachments]

Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2014 13:50:57 -0400
An adult Bahama Mockingbird today (3/20) in R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve 
in South Miami. Observer: Robin Diaz. The bird was along the trail, .25 miles 
east from the entrance gate. Parking is a problem and the closest place is a 
dirt pull-off, south of the canal. Care should be taken when walking north 
across the bridge. 


Follow US 1 south from the terminus of I-95 and turn south (left) onto Le Jeune 
Road in Coral Gables. Continue south and at the traffic circle, make the second 
right turn onto Old Cutler Road. Continue south, past Matheson Hammock County 
Park and Fairchild Tropical Gardens. R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve will be 
on the east (left) side of Old Cutler Road. Cross the bridge and look for a 
safe pull-off. Walk back north and enter the preserve on the north side of the 
canal.

I found a Cassin's Kingbird in my yard in Homestead, boy who would have 
thought to get such a good bird for a yard bird!  It has been hanging 
out with at least 24-Western Kingbirds and a couple of Scissor-tailed 
Flycatchers.  Birders are welcomed to come by and try for the bird.
Our address is: 20313 s.w. 322 st. Homestead
The bird seems to be easiest to find from about 7:30-8:30 a.m. and then 
from about 4:30-5:30 p.m. We saw it this morning but it was pretty far 
north of our house in an area that I can't explain how to get to.  If 
you come by, park on the grass left of my driveway. If you look at the 
front of my house, walk to the street on your left and walk north. There 
are some fruiting Gumbo Limbo trees next to the street along the west 
side of my property. The birds have been seen in this area, please be 
respectful of my neighbors!  You don't have to knock on my door, just 
start looking!

Mangrove Cuckoo,AntilleanNighthawk, Black-whiskered Vireo, Gray Kingbird, 
"Golden" Warbler and White-crowned Pigeon.

any of our Dry Tortugas tours!You will never be hit with a fuel surcharge. 


Our leaders include some of the most experienced birders in Florida with 
decades of experience in the Dry Tortugas. 


Upon our return to Key West we will be able to spend another night on board.

Please see our website www.floridanaturetours.net, & if you have any questions

For anyone who would like to go on a small group 3-day tour out the Dry 
Tortugas at a great price, please send me an e-mail.  This tour is not 
only great for birding but an excellent part of our American History.  
Ft. Jefferson was built with 16-million bricks but never completed.  It 
is one of the most beautiful forts built in the U.S. There are many 
great photo opportunities available for not only the birds but the fort 
and surrounding areas!  This is one of the best places in the country to 
get close to many different species of migrant song birds.   Of course 
we will see the thousands of Sooty Terns, Brown Noddies, Magnificent 
Frigatebirds, Masked and Brown Boobies.  We are able to get fairly close 
to the only breeding colony of Masked Boobies, you can't do this without 
a boat.   It is an excellent place for those photographers out there!  I 
have had the pleasure of doing over 80 trips out to the Dry Tortugas, I 
never ever get tired of them.  On the 70-mile journey out to the Dry 
Tortugas, we will see pelagic birds, two species of dolphin, Loggerhead 
Sea Turtles, Flying Fish, often times different species of sharks.  You 
never know what will be seen, each trip is different.  There is 
excellent snorkeling right off the beach at Ft. Jefferson for those that 
may be interested.  It truly is a magical place well worth visiting!

Send me an e-mail if interested, most of the tours are in April, one in May.

Today I found a Horned Lark in Buckville. It was in a partially grown field on 
the north side of Hwy 27 about  mile east of 53 - this is approximately nine 
miles west of Mayo. 

 
The partially grown field is next to a recently plowed field which also had a 
few birds. After scoping both fields I found three Horned Larks together. Other 
birds in the area include Song Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow, American Pipit, 
Killdeer and both crows. Some maps show this road as Hwy 20 because it shares 
the pavement with Hwy 27. 

 
Later in the day I found a Summer Tanager at Fanning Springs State Park in Levy 
Co.
