Carolina Wrens were regular most of the winter in our Berwick yard, going
quiet only from late February to early April. Since then, they've been
steady, usually 1 but sometimes 2 seen. I haven't observed any evidence of
nesting yet, but have my suspicions.

In a small tree, very near the entrance to Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Augusta, 
were 4 fledgling kingbirds and at least one adult. The nest was clearly visible 
with all the babies sitting on a branch near it, waiting to be fed.

Hi,

I am planning on visiting Weskeag Marsh in August to see Nelson's Sparrows. 
However, I have never been to this spot. Is there a trail that runs through the 
marsh or do I scan from the road? If anyone could offer information that could 
lead me toward seeing some Nelson's Sparrows, I'd greatly appreciate it!

if you haven't had a chance to see the chimney swifts collecting and
entering the chimney for the night, it isn't too late. It was mentioned
here about a month ago and Tonight we went looking by J & J Cleaners (Maine
St. and Dunlap).  At exactly 8:30pm about 75 collected and swooped down the
chimney! It is quite a show. Charlie

Subject: Additional Highlights This Week, 6/27-7/3
From: "'Derek and Jeannette Lovitch' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Fri, 3 Jul 2015 21:56:24 +0000 (UTC)
Hi all,
Just a few additional sightings of note from me over the past seven days, not 
previously reported here, included:- 1 Peregrine Falcon, calling at ducks 
overlooking downtown Camden, 6/30 (with Paul Doiron, Kristen Lindquist, and 
Jeannette).- 2 Greater Yellowlegs (first southbound migrants of "fall), 
Scarborough Marsh, 7/2 (with clients from NY).- 1 Whimbrel (FOY), Pine Point, 
Scarborough, 7/2 (with clients from NY).- 1 Yellow-throated Vireo, Morgan 
Meadow WMA, Raymond, 7/3 (with clients from ME). 

And a horrific, but mostly identifiable, photo of the Pacific Loon at Simpson 
Point from 6/30 can be seen here, for what little it is worth. While I am sure 
someone can write a two-page treatise confirming or refuting all of the details 
so clearly evident in this photo, I do think there's enough to at least fairly 
convincingly offer it as a "documentation" 
shot:http://www.facebook.com/Freeportwildbird/photos/a.977418758954745.1073741840.198877036808925/1091010634262223/?type=3&theater

The LITTLE EGRET was off the end of Providence Ave. from 11:30-12noon
today. The bird was on the marsh blind when we arrived, then flew down to
grasses and resumed feeding.

I am hearing one from across the street of my house on Union Street in 
Rockport. There were always a few, a very few, around the village. But cannot 
weigh in on any regional trends - tho it seems from the post here that a 
decline may have occurred. Ebird might shed actual light on that. 


This is totally out of the blue - but when Shakespeare wrote "one rose does not 
a summer make" do you think he was a climate change denier or just a hopeless 
romantic?

Hi all –
There is a black billed cuckoo in the field next to the parking lot at the 
Gervais Farm section of the Scarborough marsh. It is between the parking lot 
and the observation tower. This field has lots of sapling cherry with 
caterpillar nests. Willow flycatcher also common here. 


Also saw 4 Orchard Orioles at Stroudwater. These were observed along the trail 
following the old barge canal, about 200 yards after crossing the big bridge at 
the end of the parking lot.

Thanks to the Karma of Doug’s bird walk and its participants, the continuing 
bird was preening & loafing off the North Meadow blind this morning, or feeding 
with a Snowy Egret in a tidal creek just south of that spot. Many photos, most 
thru the haze of intervening Spartina stems. As the tide flooded, the bird was 
left in the tall grass where it still may be.

At least one, and probably a pair, did well at the southern tip of Hapswell 
over the winter.  Heard singing every month between Nov and Jun. Near the 
Giant Stairs.

Subject: Very Productive Morning in the Rockland Bog
From: Richard Harris Podolsky <richardpodolsky AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 2 Jul 2015 10:29:19 -0700 (PDT)
Awesome morning in the Rockland Bog.  Lots of birds feeding their young. 
 22 species total.  3 new species added to my list include: magnolia 
warbler, eastern wood pewee and great crested flycatcher (on the way out 
as usual...)   Of note was that all the birds marked by an * were seen 
together at one listening station!  A mega-diversity microsite!!!!

South Rockland Bog
9am-12pm
Light breeze
20% clouds
65°-73°


   1. Ovenbird*
   2. American Crow
   3. Black throated green warbler*
   4. Red-eyed vireo*
   5. Common grackle
   6. Hermit thrush*
   7. American Goldfinch
   8. Nashville warbler*
   9. White throated sparrow*
   10. Common yellowthroat*
   11. American robin
   12. Blue headed vireo
   13. Black throated blue Warbler*
   14. Eastern wood pewee*
   15. Chipping sparrow
   16. Black-and-white Warbler*
   17. Yellow rumped warbler
   18. Black-capped chickadee
   19. Pine warbler*
   20. Magnolia warbler*
   21. Red breasted nuthatch*
   22. Great crested flycatcher
   

Odd that there were no redstarts, woodpeckers, chestnut sides......There 
were a lot of Nashsville, magnolia and pine warblers on the trail though, 
which was lovely.  

Birding by ear requires being very vigilant about detecting and tracking 
down each and every sound.  Don't be fooled again!!!  You must constantly 
be open to hearing something new.  When you are  you won't be 
disappointed!!  Which means you have to also be open to admitting you don't 
know something or that you may be wrong.  Leave your ego in the car!!!  But 
such fun and rewarding birding!

I am desperate to see/hear a Canada warbler.  Does anyone have one nailed 
down within an hour of Rockport???

With reference to Chickadees, there have been very few at the feeders, and
never multiples, here in Cherryfield. But today I saw a flock or 4-5--first
flock I've seen this summer--so that is a relief. Hopefully they can get a
break this next winter.

BTW we had 3-5 Pine Siskins every day through about mid-June and have had
them sporadically since, which is very unusual for here.

Hi Stella,

I was with a birding friend (Porter Turnbull) two week​s ago who was
visiting his mother in Marion, Mass.  He asked me about Carolina wrens
because they were nearly absent in that area (the bend out to the Cape).  I
told him it was likely they experienced a winter die-off.

I spent three days birding with him in Lubec and Trescott along the
immediate coast during the third week of June.  We noticed that winter
wrens, golden-crowned and ruby-crowned kinglets, juncos, swamp sparrows and
white-throated sparrow populations were lower, in some cases, much
lower, than previous years when I conducted annual point count surveys in
that area (*e.g*., Quoddy Head State Park, Boot Head, the International
Park on Campobello Island, 4 areas in Cutler).  Black-capped chickadee
numbers were also low when located away from human habitation.

The regular one I had at my house in Waterville was last seen on Dec 6, 2014 
and usually I have a pair that hangs around all summer. No sign of them or any 
others in my travels in Maine this year. 


I know my sister in MA also says hers disappeared in late winter after making 
it through most of the hard weather under her deck and she has not been seeing

Subject: Scarborough Marsh Audubon weekly bird walk this morning 7/1
From: "'Noah Gibb' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Thu, 2 Jul 2015 01:41:44 +0000 (UTC)
This morning's weekly bird walk was quite productive this morning. 
Down at the pier at Pine Point, there were a few good signs of things to come 
as we spotted a Whimbrel across the flats among several locally breeding 
Willets. We also had a very dense collection of waders (as well as some others 
scattered about) feeding in the Scarborough River that included ~20 Great 
Egrets, 12 Snowy Egrets, 14 Glossy Ibis (I don't think I have seen this species 
feeding in the river here), 1 Black-Crowned Night-Heron, 1 Little Blue Heron, 
and the continuing presumed Snowy Egret X Tricolored Heron hybrid. Over the 
next several weeks, numbers of these birds along with shorebirds, will grow 
substantially. 

2 Roseate Terns gave good looks and offered nice comparisons with Common Terns. 
~60 Bonaparte's Gulls (including some adults) were a nice bonus as well. 

The rain picked up as we headed to the marsh behind the Pelreco building, but 
birding from the car offered great looks at Cliff, Barn, and Tree Swallows. 
Also Least Terns, a Great Blue Heron, a singing Marsh Wren, Swamp Sparrow, and 
Nelson's Sparrow rounded out a nice morning that was nearly a total washout. 

Hopefully I will see some of you next Wednesday at 7!
Bird haahd!Noah Gibb-Portland

Passing along a report that the LITTLE EGRET is currently off the North Meadow 
at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. Working its way upriver so it’ll probably head 
towards Tidewater after this.

Yes, I was very surprised to find an adult male nearly invisible in the 
tall grass near the water at around 7:40 AM. Not his usual habitat at all. 
I initially observed him for 20 minutes. He never moved or changed position 
(fully facing me) or even turned his head. All I could see was the 
straight-on face with black head cap and red eyes, and his pale grey chest. 
 I could not make out any barrings, but that could have been distance 
(about 50 - 60 ft with 10x43 bins) or possibly having chest feathers 
slightly raised. I ultimately left and continued my walk.  Twenty minutes 
later when I passed his spot again he was still there, posture unchanged. 
His location: walking (or driving) away from Hannaford along Baxter Blvd, 
between mile post 1.5 and post 1.75, closer to first. Also between fancy 
metal seat and stone bench, and extremely close to the large hollow tree on 
the water side. I kept looking for another walker with bins, but there were 
none, so I could not get a verified sighting.

Subject: PACIFIC LOON, yes, Simpson's Pt, Brunswick, 6/30
From: "'Derek Lovitch' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:45:05 -0400
Hi all,

Gordon Smith's incredibly June find continues at Simpon's Pt this morning. The 
bird has been present for the last 30 minutes at the high tide, although it is 
not close at the moment. Phone-scoped pictures are quite reminiscent of the 
Loch Ness Monster. 


The drake BUFFLEHEAD, 2 RED-THROATED LOONS (and several Commons) and 3 
LONG-TAILED DUCKS are also present at this incredible mid-summer "winter 
waterbird" hotspot. No scoters in sight at the moment though.

Subject: Pacific Loon at Simpson Point in Brunswick
From: Gordon Smith <mbsgrs AT gwi.net>
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:14:43 -0700 (PDT)
Monday evening, a very excellent-looking adult breeding plumaged Pacific 
Loon was observed in Middle Bay off Simpson Point in Brunswick.  The bird 
was located approximately 600 yards from Simpson Point in a southerly 
direction toward Scrag (Serag) Island.  In addition, there was a pair of 
Red-throated loons (unusual on this date) which passed very close to the 
Pacific Loon, providing a good comparison.   Also unusual on this date, an 
adult male Bufflehead, 11 Black scoters and 4 Long-tailed ducks were 
observed.

At least two fledgling woodpeckers visited my feeders with their parents this 
afternoon. Once introduced to a suet block by a parent, one fledgling really 
pigged out. Although red-bellieds are commonly found in my neighborhood, this 
is the first successful nesting that I've witnessed.

Subject: Maine-NH tour for WINGS: 159 species and highlights, 6/20-27
From: "'Derek and Jeannette Lovitch' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:28:01 +0000 (UTC)
 Hi all,
I just wrapped up my comprehensive, exhaustive, and yes, rather exhausting 
10-day (8 full days of birding) tour for WINGS. Despite some challenges from 
weather and the "odd" breeding season, we managed 159 species, including just 
about all (as usual, there were a few misses) of the regular breeders: 20 
species of warblers, 9 species of flycatcher, 7 species of thrush (Bicknell's 
Thrush only in NH), 5 species of tern, 5 species of vireo, 4 species of alcids, 
etc. 

While most of the highlights were the expected but much sought-after breeding 
species, a few of the unexpected goodies included the following: 

- 6 White-winged Scoters, Pine Point Beach, Scarborough, 6/20.- 1 imm. male 
Purple Martin, Pine Point, 6/20 (exploring possible nesting/roosting locations, 
including trying to fight a House Sparrow for the line-marker ball over the 
parking lot).- 2 Black-bellied Plovers, Pine Point, 6/20.- LITTLE EGRET, 
Falmouth, 6/20.- 1 Northern Gannet continuing on Machias Seal Island, 6/24.- 1 
pair Black Scoters, Quoddy Head State Park, Lubec, 6/25.- Bar Harbor 
Whale/puffin watch trip, 6/26:2 Manx Shearwaters3 Leach's Storm-Petrels12 Great 
Shearwaters10 Northern Fulmars350+ Wilson's Storm-Petrels4 Northern Gannets- 7 
Great Cormorants, Acadia National Park, 6/26. 

A great 10 days!

From: Seth Benz <sbenz AT schoodicinstitute.org>

A single Cory’s Shearwater was seen very well (within 50 yards of bow of 
boat) by a group of birders aboard 

the Friendship V Saturday morning. The bird was spotted sitting on the water 
and then launching into flight 

in the vicinity of the “Ballpark”. Good long look as it flew along 
starboard side. (Details in eBird report). 

Other birds included: 5 Northern Fulmar, 60+ Wilson’s Storm Petrels, 14 Great 
Shearwaters, and a 

handful of Northern Gannet.  No whales were seen.

I just got a text from Deb and Ed Hawkes that the LITTLE EGRET finally showed 
up off the North Meadow at Gilsland Farm (in Falmouth) at 11:40AM. 


We missed it during the bird walk from 7-9:30, probably because the tide was 
too high. 


Good luck to all chasing!

Spaces are still available for our Stratton Island Trips

Not far from the Scarborough shore, Stratton Island is a nesting colony and
roosting site for a remarkable diversity of coastal birds.

A project site of National Audubon’s internationally-recognized Seabird
Restoration Program, Stratton is normally inaccessible to visitors. On
these special outings, however, we will be able to land and have a uniquely
intimate experience among a thousand pairs of terns. Observation blinds
provide remarkable photographic opportunities. The island’s extraordinary
bird colony includes little blue and black-crowned night-herons; snowy and
great egrets; glossy ibis; common, roseate, arctic, and least terns;
blue-winged teal; sora; and one of Maine’s rarest breeding birds: the
American oystercatcher.
Two spaces just opened up for this Sunday's trip which runs from 8:30 to
Noon.  If you are interested click here for details and to register.  This
trip is lead by Linda Woodard and Richard "Turk" Duddy
Stratton Island I June 28


Limited spaces are also available for our other two trips,
Stratton Island II July 8 from 12:00 to 3:30
   This
trip is lead by Linda Woodard and Doug Hitchcox.

And

Stratton Island III July 12
  This
trip is lead by Linda Woodard and Noah Gibb.

Hello,

David Doubleday and a group of about 10 people watched 3 different 
SHARP-TAILED SPARROWS.  I took many pictures of two of them and have loaded 
8 pictures onto Flickr into an album called SHARP-TAILED.  Also two videos 
to hear the sound. I did not have a tripod, so not great for viewing bird.
        Pictures on log are 9949, 9917, 9982, and 0049.  Pictures on roots 
and this is a different bird, 0004, 0025, 0034, 0044

        Some are going with Nelson's and some are thinking Saltmarsh.  What 
do you think??

I had this occur today with a Red-Winged Blackbird and Kildeer taking turns 
on a Red Tailed Hawk. I don't think either bird realized the hawk already 
had supper in its clutches in the form of a chipmunk. The other Kildeer was 
huddled on what I would assume was the nest while this went on overhead.

Subject: Weekly Wednesday Scarborough Marsh bird walks
From: "'Noah Gibb' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Tue, 23 Jun 2015 02:17:51 +0000 (UTC)
Attention birders,
I just wanted to remind anyone who may be interested that the weekly Maine 
Audubon bird walks at the Scarborough Marsh are on Wednesday mornings from 
7:00-8:30 am. Meet at the nature center on Pine Pt Rd (Rte 9) bright and early 
and we will carpool to the best spot(s) that suit the tide and time of year. 
There is a small fee that 100% supports Maine Audubon (volunteers are free). 

We are right in the heart of the breeding season, so we can usually locate both 
Nelson's and Saltmarsh Sparrows. Great views can be had of a multitude of 
wading birds including Little Blue Heron, Glossy Ibis, and even an occasional 
White-Faced Ibis. Willets are everywhere right now as are 4 species of swallows 
with more possibilities coming soon when fall migration picks up next month! 

At lower tides while migration is in full swing, we head down to Pine Point 
which can be loaded up with migratory shorebirds and also hosts occasional

There were 3 beautiful R. Turnstones on the oyster leases today as I flipped 
traps up and down the river. Very bright plumages too on all 3.

​Three great days on Monhegan. Eiders, black guillemots, song sparrows,
various gulls and a special flight of about 12 great blue herons landing on
Smutty Nose early Saturday morning.

This happens a lot with our eagles on Sebago Lake. We have watched this 
behavior for years. They have ridden on their backs as well as riding on their 
heads. Sometimes the eagle is flying in with a fish when they jump on sometimes 
he is just taking off and they fly after him and jump on. It is amazing to 
watch. 

They also like to fly at the eagle, when the eagle is just sitting on a tree 
branch, it just starts hitting the eagle on the head over and over again. The 
eagle does nothing, sometimes he just ducks a little. Nervy little bird!!

 Kayaking on Lake Arrowhead on Saturday morning,  I went to visit our local 
eagle nest where I saw the adult eagle feed the young eagles and then take 
off.  

 A kingbird nearby flew up over the flying eagle and landed on its back, and 
took a ride.  

 I saw this happen twice.  Today I went back when the weather finally cleared 
out and found another couple who saw the same behavior.  Had anyone else seen 
this happen?

From: cathie.murray AT gmail.com
Date: Sun, 21 Jun 2015 19:05:06 -0700 (PDT)
Saturday 6/20 around 3 pm we saw 2 adult oystercatchers fly off the ocean into 
the cove near all the wonderful least tern families and then veer out and fly 
south hugging the shore. 

Saw two adult piping plovers and 4 chicks.
Several dozen adult least terns bringing food back to young. Only two common 
terns harassing them while we were there. 

Saw several adult willets as we hiked from the beach to the farm, including one 
that stood atop a tall pine tree calling constantly. We were some distance away 
but got great views through the scope.

From: "Bob Duchesne" <duchesne AT midmaine.com>

They grow up so fast.

 

It seems like only yesterday (April 30th) that I watched a black-backed
woodpecker widening the nest cavity used by American three-toed woodpeckers
last year on the Harvester Road west of Baxter. Two weeks ago, I watched
black-backed woodpecker parents carrying food to the little dickens, and
they were still doing it a week ago. Yesterday, the male youngster was grown
enough to stick his head out of the cavity, rather than waiting for mom to
enter with food. His little yellow button cap was only half the size of his
father's, but he was twice as loud and persistent. He should fledge any
minute, along with any kin in there with him. With luck, they'll be there on
Wednesday when Seth Benz and I chase northern woodpeckers with a few guests
in tow.

 

The American three-toed woodpecker near Nesowadnehunk Lake Wilderness
Campground is staying very close to the same spot, a week after I last
looked. He was in virtually the same spot, but I haven't bothered to find
the nest - its wicked damp back there. I assume the nestlings will also
fledge soon.

 

Gray Jays are being trailed by youngsters. Boreal chickadees are vocal a
little earlier than usual up in the north woods. Methinks summer has
arrived.

CWW and juveniles continue to be abundant at the summit. Saw young juveniles 
last weekend in the berry bushes behind the former barn and up in the oaks 
overlooking them . This morning they seemed to find shelter from rain in the 
White Fir off the corner of the lodge deck. 

Prairie Warblers spotted and heard all week at the summit as well as numerous 
others even from the access road - BT Green Warbler, Ovenbird, Hermit Thrush...
