OOPS on last post!!  Sorry - I hit the send too soon!!  J 

Here is a link to the post of pics  of the bird that Joanne Stevens found in
Scarboro this afternoon. 

Looks like the deformity is below the bill, not the bill itself.  Almost
like a second bill!   

Interesting bird.    

Glad she called me to take a look and take some photos.

     I did not find the large flock of Bohemians at the Marriott 
TownPlace Suites (near House of Lights) in Scarborough reported 
yesterday by Brendan but I did see 5, one of them a leucistic Bohemian.  
The body, wings and tail were mostly creamy white, belly white, head 
buffy with black mask, undertail coverts rusty.  It was feeding with a 
few Cedars and Robins.  It had either a deformed bill or something stuck 
to its bill/chin.

     I did not have a camera so I called Marie Jordan and she will post 
some photos.

Carol Jack reports a pair of Peregrine Falcons on top of the elevator shaft 
"chimney" on Fort Andros (perched & preening) on March 1. 


She first saw them  on Jan 2 chasing pigeons over the dam.

Fort Andros is an old mill building on the river front on Maine Street (at the 
bridge to Topsham). Views are sometimes best from the Topsham side looking over 
the Androscoggin to the mill.

​Although, mostly frozen over, the Camden waterfront offered some fun
observations of buffleheads, mallards, horned grebe and a pair of
red-breasted mergansers. A fly over by an American bald eagle provided a
little excitement. A magical place for sure!

From: Rob O'Connell <flashart123 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 1 Mar 2015 21:39:08 -0800 (PST)
Stopped by late morning to see if I could show my son the Peregrine Falcons 
at Thomas Knight Park in South Portland. He was reluctant to believe my 
promise as the last 2 times I tried with him, they did not show themselves. 
I coaxed him out of the car and down to the pier and right on cue they both 
were out flying around. One landed on the big bumper that is about 60 feet 
off the end of the pier and we were able to walk over and stand there 
watching it for a while PF Sitting 
. We noticed it had what 
appeared to be a European Starling in its clutches PF Flying In 
 and PF Flying Away 
. These birds continue to 
amaze. To add icing to the cake, there was a group of 3 ducks which I did 
not look closely at as we came in, but as we were leaving I noticed one was 
a Green Winged Teal . 

Cheers.

I went on Saturday and noticed one of the Pintails. In the background 
 
Thought I took a picture of it as the subject but apparently not. There 
were just too many birds there I guess. 
Noticed one thing that was kind of cool that day, almost every Mallard that 
I could see was showing the irridescent blue head instead of the normal 
green. I know it was a trick of the light and have seen it before, but 
never so completely over such a large group of birds. 
I did get one decent picture of a Mallard turned just right to get both 
colors on it. Mallard 

Beautiful spot up there and a lots of feathered friends to see up there for 
sure.

I was up to the breakwater and saw the usual cast of characters, Herring 
Gulls, Common Eiders, Red Breasted Mergansers, Harlequin Ducks, 
Buffleheads, Mallards, and American Crows. The find for me there was the 2 
Black Guillemot's that were diving out between 2 turquoise lobster pots (if 
you step off the path onto the breakwater looking perpendicular to the 
breakwater, they are directly out from there). They were far enough out 
that my camera could not catch more than a grayish blob in the water, but 
you could easily make them out with a scope. 
One side note, if you are going to attempt the breakwater, be careful, the 
snow has covered many of the gaps in the rocks and with the warmer temps, 
some of the hard pack covering the gaps was breaking through. Walking and 
birding at the same time can be hazardous to your health out there. :-)

I had also been over to Owl's Head Lighthouse and walked down to the cove 
on the north side of the head and was pleased to find a RB Merg, 2 Common 
Loons, a Horned Grebe, and a Black Guillemot (whitish phase) playing close 
enough to shore and patient enough to let me use the camera on them. 
Black Guillemot 
RBMerganser 
So Happy Together...  
One of the more interesting shorebirds there was a Robin that was feeding 
on something amongst the rocks.. 

Nothing much else to speak of off the lighthouse though. 
It was a beautiful day to be out!

My daughter and I saw a flock of about 50 bohemian waxwings on the corner of 
Foss and Patterson Roads in Limerick. We were about to get a photo when they 
were scared off by 6 screaming blue jays. We waited to see if a hawk was about 
to approach, as is often the case when one encounters screaming flocks of blue 
jays, but no.

We took advantage of the beautiful day and drove the Schoodic Loop Road.
The road is well plowed with turn-outs.  There were many Common Loons,
Horned Grebes, Surf Scoters, Long-tailed Ducks, Common Eiders, Red-breasted
Mergansers and Great Cormorants.  The best birds of the day were 15
Harlequin Ducks feeding off the ledges to the north and east of Blueberry
parking lot.

Three drake Pintails at the alewives. A Green-winged Teal also was there 
earlier before I arrived. Down Bunker Hill Rd. at least 13 Cardinals were 
around a friends feeder. Assorted adults and first winter ect. but isn't that a 
lot for 1 feeding area?

Subject: Bohemian Waxwings, Portland & Scarborough
From: Brendan McKay <thank.darwin AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 1 Mar 2015 16:24:10 -0800 (PST)
Came across two groups of Bohemian Waxwings today. I found the first group 
on my way to the trailhead for the Presunmpscot River trail, off Curtis Rd 
in Portland. There were 61 Bohemian Waxwings high in a maple tree, in the 
yard below there was a crabapple tree. The group visited this tree several 
times while I counted them from the road. When I came back through an hour 
later after my walk along the river, the group had moved on.

The second group was found at the end of the parking area for the Marriott 
TownePlace suits in Scarborough, just past the House of Lights. This group 
contained 89 Bohemian and 8-10 Cedar Waxwings. The entire parking area is 
surrounded with crabapple trees with a lot of fruit left. With such a high 
concentration of food, I'm guessing they will be easy to find here.

Here are the eBird checklists for reference;

Does anyone have any ideas about why there are so many Bohemian Waxwings 
around this year?   I saw a small flock of Bohemian Waxwings on the Perkins 
Ridge Road here in Auburn last week - have never seen more than one or two 
mixed in with Cedar Waxwings before.

To add to the numerous Bohemian Waxwing sightings, we saw a large flock of 240+ 
as rt.209 passes by Dromore Bay, another 52 at the house here in Richmond. 


Nothing unexpected for birds at Popham Beach but an adult and pup Harp Seal on 
the Three Herons Isls was surprising to me. There was a group of 8 Harbor Seals 
about 200 m from the two Harp Seals. The pup must have been born locally.

Subject: 50 + flock of Bohemian Waxwings in an Apple Orchard in Jay, Maine
From: Ernie <photoblazer.hall404 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 1 Mar 2015 07:35:28 -0800 (PST)
Yesterday while walking my dog in the field, I witnessed a huge flock of 
50+ Bohemian Waxwings eating left over apples from some of my trees. I hope 
you deem this a proper post Doug, I know you frown on posts with the word 
feeders in it.  This is apple trees that are over 80 years old with a ton 
of the natural fruit still on them. I was very surprised to see the 
Bohemian Waxwings eating the apples.  I knew they did eat berries, it was a 
first for me. I'm not sure if they hung around or not, but am hoping they 
do for more photos. Here is a link to some of the photos from yesterday. I 
hope it works, the 1st time posting from Flickr.
Happy Birding Everyone,
Ernie Hall

Shiloh's photograph of the Saw-Whet Owl is on page B-5 of today's (March 1)
Maine Sunday Telegram, in an article about the tough winter and its effect
on wildlife.  I wondered if the recent appearances of these little owls was
a sign that they are troubled by the weather.  Sadly, it looks like they
are.

There was a Thick-billed Murre in fairly close to the point at the Cliff House 
in Ogunquit today at 1:30pm. It kind of had a look like a Dovekie before 
getting the scope on it.

Subject: Eastern Prom - Barrow's, Glaucous Gull and Scaup
From: Brendan McKay <thank.darwin AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 28 Feb 2015 14:26:33 -0800 (PST)
The male Barrow's Goldeneye reported recently is still continuing just off 
the boat launch. It was seen associating with a small group of Common 
Goldeneye. Also a 1st or 2nd winter Glaucous Gull was in the area as well 
as 2 groups of scaup. The first group was in close and contained seven 
greater scaup, the second group had 29 individuals and was too far out to 
ID.

Over at Spring Point in South Portland, there was a solo female greater 
scaup.

My husband called me at work to tell me a Barred Owl was sitting on the 
shepherds hook of our feeders. The Owl flew down and ate a vole and flew up 
into the tree. He was still there when I arrived home. That morning we had 
caught a mouse in the live trap and I had put it on the railing near the front 
door for my husband to dispose of. I asked where it was and he said the trap 
was on the deck and the door had been torn off and the mouse was gone. I'm 
thinking Mr/Mrs Owl had an earlier meal! As of 7pm tonight she/he had flown 
back down to the shepherds hook and was sitting there all puffed up probably 
waiting for the next vole.

From: rob speirs <rspeirs1 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2015 15:07:31 -0500
This morning, John Heath and I found three continuing Rusty Blackbirds at
Hill Farm on Harbor Rd, No. Fryeburg. At the horse paddock on Corn Shop Rd
there were large numbers of Snow Buntings and Horned Larks, plus a bonus of
two Lapland Longspur.

A large mixed flock of Larks and Buntings were at Riverside Farm, on Rt
113, just south of its junction with Harbor Rd.

It is an extremely pretty area that is a broad flood plain with expansive,
wide open agricultural fields.

Huge thanks to Bob Crowley, Joe Scott and Mik Oyler for periodic updates
from the area.

From: Louis Bevier <lrbevier AT colby.edu>
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:47:27 -0500
Mike Fahay’s duck looks like an immature male Greater Scaup, as suggested by 
others. The wide, black tip is a character of male Greater Scaup. The pale band 
behind the wide, blackish tip is a character seen on female and immature scaup, 
especially as the bill color begins to change for summer. See these examples: 


female and immature male Greater Scaup
https://flic.kr/p/e12Cj5 

immature male Greater Scaup showing prominent pale subterminal band and a bit 
more white in the face compared to the Damariscotta Mills bird, which may be 
more advanced in molt. 

https://flic.kr/p/pBHawy 

Could it be a hybrid? Redheads show a similar but more distinct pale 
subterminal band but a broader, complete black tip. A few hybrid Redhead x 
Greater Scaup are known, but I don’t see anything on Mike’s bird to suggest 
a hybrid with Redhead or any other Aythya duck (e.g. different head shape, back 
and sides being more similar with flanks less pale and contrasting, etc.) Wing 
characters might help. Here are some photos of adult male hybrids (from captive 
parents). A bid difficult to compare given Mike’s bird is an immature male.

Subject: More Bohemian Waxwings
From: Gary Jarvis <garykjarvis AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 18:36:11 -0800 (PST)


Hello, all,

I'm new to this group, but wanted to add to the many BOWA reports of late.

My wife and I came across a flock of about two dozen Bohemian Waxwings in a 
tree on King Road in Lisbon around 12:15 this afternoon (Wednesday).  The 
tree was immediately adjacent to the road on the south side, and about 
three-tenths of a mile east of the intersection with Littlefield Road.  We 
didn't see any Cedar Waxwings mixed in with them (though we did see a few 
of those, too, a few minutes later and a little further down the road).  
Having just moved to Maine from Philadelphia at the beginning of the year, 
this was the first time that either of us had seen Bohemian Waxwings, so it 
was all rather exciting!

Gary Jarvis and Christine Murray

Hey everyone:

I try not advertise for too many programs on here but seeing the artwork 
currently hanging, I think this will be too good to miss: 


Tonight at Gilsland Farm, Maine Audubon will present “Extinctions in America 
- Lessons from the Past & for the Present” as part of our Speaker Series. The 
program will include a talk/showing by Eddie Woodin who has brought in some 
stunning pieces of historical North American bird artwork, as well as talk by 
Deborah Cramer, author of the forthcoming book The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an 
Ancient Crab & an Epic Journey. 


More information on the program is available at: 
http://maineaudubon.org/events/speaker-series-extinctions-in-america-lessons-from-the-past-for-the-present/ 
 


Hope to see you there,

The odd scaup like duck continues at the upper Alwives pond. Would love to hear 
any definitive info on this duck, like what is it? Then going around the corner 
after St. Patrick's church on the wires crossing the road,just perch was a 
Barred Owl. Unconcerned with me whatsoever gave me amazing views. I was 
literally under the bird looking up as it was looking down on me. Amazing!!

Found this Sharp-shinned perched on our feeders, this morning. When it
moved to the cedar off the deck it revealed a band on its right leg.

Subject: Common Redpoll and Eastern Bluebirds in Scarborough
From: Florence Maguire <flomag AT maine.rr.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 19:18:02 -0500
I came home this afternoon to find a Common Redpoll in the tray feeder then
shortly afterwards two pairs of Eastern Bluebirds showed up to feast on the
seeds and suet. This is the third or fourth time they have been here since
the storms started in Feb. What a treat.

Subject: Belfast Bay census of Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015
From: Ronald Harrell <rharrell9 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 18:20:37 -0500
Gary Gulezian, Tom Aversa, and myself did the census.  The spell of cold
weather has now converted large sections of Belfast Harbor (80 %) and the
Passagassawakeag River (95%) to being ice-covered, which cut down on the
number of individual birds and species found.  Also, cold temperatures (-13
to 5 F.), deep snow, and sea smoke hampered birding.  Still, 693
individuals from 11 species were found with Herring Gulls and Mallards
again dominating the numbers.  Highlights of the day were two Iceland Gulls
(1 adult, 1 first cycle) and three female Common Mergansers.

Protocol: Traveling
5.0 mile(s)
Comments:     Observers were Ron Harrell, Gary Gulezian, and Tom Aversa.
Cold weather (-13 to 5 F.), deep snow, and sea smoke hampered birding, and
the recent spell of harsh winter weather seems to have caused the
number(11) of species to drop.  Still, 693 individual birds were counted
with Herring Gulls and Mallards dominating the numbers.  Also, numbers of
birds were effected by the amount of frozen water, especially in Belfast
Harbor)(80% and the Passagassawakeag River(95%).
11 species

American Black Duck  4
Mallard  206     10 males, 7 females, 189 individuals who were seen only
dimly through sea smoke and backlighting from the sun.
Bufflehead  23     8 males, 15 females
Common Goldeneye  44     31 males, 13 females
Common Merganser  3     3 females
Red-breasted Merganser  2     a pair
Common Loon  2
Bald Eagle  2     1 adult and 1 immature
Herring Gull  399     276 adults, 14 third cycle, 24 second cycle, 12 first
cycle, and 73 individuals that viewing conditions prevented from being
assigned to age classes.
Iceland Gull  2     1 adult and 1 first cycle
American Crow  6

Comments:     Observers were Ron Harrell, Gary Gulezian, and Tom Aversa.
Cold weather (-13 to 5 F.), deep snow, and sea smoke hampered birding, and
the recent spell of harsh winter weather seems to have caused the
number(11) of species to drop.  Still, 693 individual birds were counted
with Herring Gulls and Mallards dominating the numbers.  Also, numbers of
birds were effected by the amount of frozen water, especially in Belfast
Harbor)(80% and the Passagassawakeag River(95%).
11 species

American Black Duck  4
Mallard  206     10 males, 7 females, 189 individuals who were seen only
dimly through sea smoke and backlighting from the sun.
Bufflehead  23     8 males, 15 females
Common Goldeneye  44     31 males, 13 females
Common Merganser  3     3 females
Red-breasted Merganser  2     a pair
Common Loon  2
Bald Eagle  2     1 adult and 1 immature
Herring Gull  399     276 adults, 14 third cycle, 24 second cycle, 12 first
cycle, and 73 individuals that viewing conditions prevented from being
assigned to age classes.
Iceland Gull  2     1 adult and 1 first cycle
American Crow  6

A gentleman from Finntown Road in Waldoboro phoned to report a dead saw-whet in 
his garage today. The bird is apparently in a good and undamaged condition. Is 
there anyone from IF&W or other organization with a permit that would like the 
bird for educational purposes? If so, contact me and I'll provide the phone 
number of the home owner. Thanks.

Hi all,
Jeannette and I combed the coast from Kittery to Kennebunk today, trying to 
think like a Gyrfalcon, to no avail. 


We did enjoy the continuing drake KING EIDER at The Cliff House, 51 Harlequin 
Ducks between the Nubble and Marginal Way in Ogunquit, 1 Sanderling at Ogunquit 
Beach, and 3 Horned Larks and 2 Sanderlings in Wells Harbor.

Subject: Odd Duck, Damariscotta Mills
From: Michael Fahay <mfahay AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 16:09:52 -0500
Have been studying an unusual scaup-like duck in the upper pond (above the fish 
ladders) at Damariscotta Mills for the past few days. Vantage points offer 
terrible light angles, plus the bird spends most of its time diving, which 
affects the “color” of its back. Basically looks like a Greater Scaup, with 
bill characters of Ring-necked Duck. When wet, and back-lit, the back might 
resemble the silver-grey of Scaup, but in different light, the back looks 
over-all dark, approaching black, as in RN Duck or Tufted Duck. The white flank 
is mottled, and has only a slight “hook” at its anterior upper point. The 
head is nicely rounded, with a slight “peak” at mid-point of crown only 
infrequently expressed. 


But the bill has a wide, black “smudge” at the tip, unlike the crisp nail 
seen in both scaups. Behind this smudge is a wider whitish band, crossing the 
width of the bill. The base of the bill lacks the narrow, sharp white line that 
typifies Ring-Necked Ducks, instead there are matching roundish white 
“spots” on each side. 


It’s a frustrating spot to get photos, since “up-sun” places are 
inaccessible, private property, or thigh-high in drifts. But a few are here:

There is a barred owl in a cedar near the Rockland Library.  It was  on
Beech Street between the brown and white house if you are standing on the
library parking lot. Not a good place to drive but if you happen to be
going to the library keep on eye on the crows that are mobbing.

Subject: Northern Saw-whet Owl, Auburn
From: Raven Watcher <ravenwatcher AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 13:41:34 -0500
Hello All,

A Northern Saw-whet Owl was being harassed by two crows in a yard in the
vicinity of Eighth and Cook near the Sherwood School in "New Auburn".
Unlikely to be seen again, probably.  Sharp-shinned Hawk near there also.

Numbers of Mallards, a few American Black Ducks and the associated gene
pool growing on the riverwalk with decreasing open water in the area.

A warden was releasing a Common Goldeneye drake that was found in the road
at the nearby Rolly's diner.  Seemed healthy.  Possibly dazed by collision
with wires near the mouth of the Little Androscoggin River where these
birds hang out in numbers.

Subject: Locations/Times of Snowy Owl Sightings in Bangor/Hermon Ind. Parks
From: <mills8111 AT roadrunner.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:52:22 -0500
I recently had surgery in Bangor and was headed home on Saturday after spending 
a few days with my daughter in Winterport when we decided to cruise through 
some of the industrial parks near the Hermon/Bangor line (near where my 
youngest daughter lives). We didn't see any snowy's but were treated to some 
wild turkeys feeding on berries on a few small trees in front of a building. 


I was just wondering if the SNOW's were still in that area and if any 
particular location and/or time of day was better than others. My travels will 
be restricted to short trips for the next 2-4 weeks, but I do have a follow up 
visit with my surgeon on March 11. If anyone is willing to post any updates or 
contact me off net (maurrymills AT gmail.com) it would be greatly appreciated. I 
reside along the Dennys River in Dennysville and work at the Moosehorn NWR in 
the Calais area when I'm not recuperating from one thing or another. 


Thanks and good birding; remember the traditional day for the return of the 
woodcock to Moosehorn's Baring Division is in the third week of March. As one 
of our old time workers used to say, I think we've broken winters back. We can 
only hope that is true this year. 


Best,

Maurry Mills

I will be visiting Freeport this weekend and wonder if there are any good 
hotspots to check out in the area for some birding.  I'm from VT, so a lot 
of the norther birds I have seen around here.  I did see on eBird that 
there have been some Bohemian waxwings, which are on my quest list.  Ducks 
and shorebirds are pretty rare around me and I have yet to see birds like 
goldeneyes, grebes, red breasted mergansers.....  If there are some good 
spots to see birds like this near Freeport, I'd love to know where.  It 
would be awesome to get a few lifebirds there,  Thanks for any tips or help.

Subject: Mystery redpoll ID challenge
From: Chris Bartlett <christophabartlett AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 Feb 2015 18:36:29 -0800 (PST)
 

We had a large, aggressive redpoll at our feeders this weekend that I found 
difficult to identify to species. The bird had light flank streaking, white 
undertail coverts, and a white/pink rump that all looked good for a hoary 
redpoll.  But, the brown color on the back and the extensive rosy breast 
and cheeks were a much better fit for a common redpoll.  The bird lacked 
that “frosty” appearance and light pink breast of a classic male hoary. The 

bill was also quite large, which doesn’t fit many hoary redpoll 
descriptions. Five photos can be seen here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/101615744 AT N02/

I reached out to a few friends who gave me their sage advice. I think that 
the bird feels more like a pale male common redpoll.  But maybe my 
perception of hoary redpolls is too narrow? I’m also fine with giving it 
the WNK designation (we’ll never know). I welcome your thoughts off-list. 
I’d also like to invite those knowledgable with the intricacies of redpoll 
ID to offer their guidance to the group. 

Cheers,

From: Rob O'Connell <flashart123 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:22:57 -0800 (PST)
Thank you Louis(and others who responded to me offline). 

This is a good lesson and, although I felt lucky just seeing them, now, 
offering a photo that might help others figure them out, makes it extra 
special. 

I think my main problems this morning when I was going over the picture was 
a few pitfalls that probably entrap a lot of birders. 
A) I was using the image that had the hidden bird to compare (thus not 
comparing all equally)
B) I made the assumption that the old "Birds of a feather flock together" 
adage was true.   I wonder how many other lies my parents told me. :-)
C) I relied on the pictures in the guides to show me the way (Peterson, 
Kaufman, and Audubon) and the images showed more of the purplish/blue tinge 
on the lesser, so I just went with that. My Sibley's was downstairs and it 
was very much a Monday after a long weekend so I did not go get it like I 
should have. 
 
Fortunately as always, everyone here is to discuss it and set me straight! 

Thanks all!

Congratulations, Rob. ONE of those 7 scaup looks like a male Lesser Scaup. The 
other 6 are Greater Scaup. 


For others who may be interested, this is an instructive set of photos for 
testing your scaup ID skills. The photo that Rob linked (see bottom copy from 
his message) shows 7 scaup, but one is hidden. All the identifiable birds are 
Greater in that image. The next photo, however, shows all the birds strung out 
for easy ID. To see the details in this photo one needs to look at the 
“original” linked here: 

http://flashart.smugmug.com/Birding/i-QJHF6BC/0/O/LesserScaup022115.jpg 
 


Starting at the left, there’s an immature Greater, male Lesser (probably an 
adult), immature female Greater, adult female Greater, and then 3 adult male 
Greaters. 


Head color is tricky and not so reliable. Under good conditions male Greater 
shows a dark green tinge and male Lesser a purplish sheen. I don’t think that 
is helpful or definitive here. The traditional head shape difference 
highlighted in most field guides can be tricky too. That is that Lesser shows a 
notch on the occiput (top rear of head/crown) and Greater is rounded. The 
problem is that foraging scaup compress their heads and all can look round 
headed. In a relaxed pose, like that shown by Rob’s birds swimming along, the 
classic head shape usually shows. But to get around the the notch/no notch 
problem, look at the crown on the Greater Scaup and see how the high point is 
above the eye or slightly forward of it. The head then slopes to the rear and 
is rounded. Also note that there isn’t much head above the eye on the 
Greaters. Now look at the Lesser, second from left--one can see how the 
forehead seems to be the lowest point of the crown and the rear the highest. 
That’s typical of Lesser Scaup. Also note that there is more “head” above 
the eye to the top of the crown on the Lesser (the eye is more central in the 
head but still positioned about the same point behind the top rear of the 
bill). Other supportive characters shown by the Lesser Scaup are its size and 
flank color. The male Lesser appears about 10% smaller than its flock-mates and 
shows duller grayish-tinged flank than the adult male Greaters. That fits for 
Lesser. 


On the females, the immature shows a pale patch over the ear coverts. That is a 
good feature of Greater Scaup (esp. immature females). The adult female (bright 
gold eye) has her bill turned toward the camera, and one can see how broad her 
bill is. The wide head, wide jowls, and broad bill are really good features to 
look for on Greater Scaup. This is best determined by birds swimming toward 
you.

Sorry for the lateness of this post. Work tied me up unexpectedly. 

Was out  a bit on Saturday helping my nephew with a photography assigment 
and in the morning was near Tommy's Park and saw the PEREGRINE FALCON. It 
flew up to the power line in the boatyard and scanned the area for a bit. 
We turned to look at some smaller birds in the trees and when we turned 
back around it was gone. The other was vocalizing from under the bridge 
while that one was in view. We then went to Spring Point and happened to 
catch 7 SCAUP off the lighthouse. I believe they were LESSER SCAUP as they 
seemed to have a more bluish tinge to the head. Feel free to correct me if 
you think I am wrong(Photo ), 
it was a new bird for me so there is a high likelihood that I botched the 
call. :-)

Later that afternoon there was a SNOWY OWL(Photo 
) at the Jetport. Spotted 
easily from the little parking lot on Aviation Boulevard. 

Cheers.

Me Again,

 

Another noteworthy find yesterday was a female King Eider in a large flock
off Portland Head light - in the flock south of the lighthouse proper.

 

Also the usual suspect both here and Dyer Point.

Greetings all,

 

First of all, thanks Steve for posting my observation from yesterday morning
- I was away for a couple of days with no internet access and wanted word to
get out.

 

Since a couple of people have asked for updates, and seeing none, I figured
I could at least provide a little more detail on the sighting. 

 

I got to the end of the docks on Harbor Road around 9:00 and braved the
winds to scan around the harbor for ducks and whatnot. The Gyr came up from
the south low over the water on the east side, passing directly opposite the
end of the pier. It then rose and circled a few times, went down the outlet
of the harbor toward the ocean - briefly passing out of sight - then came
back and put up all the gulls to the north of the pier. Then it landed on
the ice-covered point and I called Steve. To do the latter I ducked between
two buildings to get out of the wind, and when I looked again I could not
find the bird.  :(

 

But it's clearly still around somewhere, although with increasing snow piles
seemingly everywhere, find places to stop and look for it is only going to
get harder.

Back home in Concord, NH (and look, more snow!)

Subject: Spring arrival date study
From: Herb Wilson <whwilson AT colby.edu>
Date: Sat, 21 Feb 2015 18:28:39 -0500
Hello,

As many of you know, I have been coordinating a project to document the
first arrival of migratory breeding birds across the state of Maine for the
past 20 years.  Well over 300 birders from all around the state have
contributed data.  We have learned much about the nature of Maine bird
migration from this citizen-science project.  The data also have provided
insight into the impacts of climate change on our bird fauna.  You can
download copies of research papers on the data at
http://web.colby.edu/whwilson/publications/

I recently mailed out 2015 datasheets to all birders that contributed data
for 2014 along with the summary of the 2014 migration.  If you submitted
data and did not receive new datasheets, let me know.

If you have not participated, I hope you will consider doing so in the 22nd
year of the project.  All I ask is that you record the first date you see
any of about 120 migratory breeding birds in your part of the state.  If
you would like to participate, send me an e-mail giving your snail mail
address and I will put a set of datasheets in the mail for you.  I can also
send the datasheets electronically as a Word file.

This spring promises to be an interesting one. The deep snow on the ground
and the cold temperatures throughout the northeast  so far may translate
into a late arrival of many birds.

Best wishes,

Herb

At the reversing falls (the 'keag) in S. Thomaston we found a drake Greater
Scaup feeding in the outpouring stream, and two Red-tailed Hawks, both
separate and being chased relentlessly by crows.

Several of us were there looking from 10:10 to 11:10 with no luck. Very windy. 
Hoping to hear of any success before heading back North. 


Did find the King Eider at the Cliff House and a Peregrine at Nubble Light 
however, plus the usual Ocean birds.

​Okay, I know the jury is out on anthropomorphizing, but I couldn't help
think that this snowy owl was smiling. Maybe at the wonderful weather!

Subject: This Week's Highlights, 2/14-20
From: "'Derek and Jeannette Lovitch' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2015 22:52:12 +0000 (UTC)
Hi all,
Just a few sightings of note over the past seven days included:- 5 Iceland 
Gulls (1 1st-winter, 1 2nd-winter, 1 4th-winter-type, and 2 adults), Bath 
landfill, 2/19.*- 1 adult Iceland Gull (different individual from above), North 
End Boat Launch, Bath, 2/19.- 50 Bohemian Waxwings, here at the store, 2/20.- 
24 Iceland (15 1st-winter, 6 ad, 3 2nd-winter) and 2 Glaucous Gulls, Old Port, 
Portland, 2/20 (with Kristen Lindquist).*- 150 Bohemian Waxwings with 75-100 
Cedar Waxwings, Terison's Orchard, Whitney Road, Cumberland, 2/20. 

- 2 drake Barrow's Goldeneyes continue in what's left of the open water at the 
tip of Winslow Park, Freeport.- only Common Mergansers now remain in what's 
left of the open water at Grist Mill Park in Yarmouth.  -"Winter Finch" high 
counts this week:Purple Finch: 3, our yard in Pownal all week.Common Redpoll: 
50, yard in Freeport, 2/14 (with Saturday Morning Birdwalk group).Pine Siskin: 
14, our yard in Pownal on 2/18.American Goldfinch: 35+, our yard in Pownal all 
week. 

But our best birding of the week was on Tuesday, in Gloucester, MA, especially 
the 70+ Iceland Gulls in the harbor from the Jodfrey Fish Pier!  The counts 
above from Bath and Portland (*) are double what my tallies had been of late. 
Prior to the 17th in Gloucester, most reports were of just a few Iceland 
Gulls.  Other Eastern Mass reports, along with these Maine tallies, suggests a 
very recent flight into the region. 

-Derek
