Spring is here for me, when Hooded Mergs show up... today on Goose Rocks Rd., 
Kennebunkport. At the end of King's Highway, off Goose Rocks Rd., in the cloudy 
cold and wind, the tide was too high to find the plovers. There were 3 people 
running out on the sand bar. On Arundel Rd., Kennebunkport, no snipe found, but 
3 TVs were sitting in the field farther back from where the habitat looked good 
for snipe. The field was no longer flooded, however. 



Peepers were calling loudly on Grammar Rd., Sanford, last night as I went by. 
Didn't hear any quacks, but didn't stop.

Was driving into town. Wife called and said a female Ruffed Grouse just 
flew through a window on a glassed in porch. Something spooked the bird 
outside and it burst through the window. It was disoriented for a time. We 
opened the door and it flew out and quickly hid. I will check on the bird 
later to see if it fully recovers from its trauma.

on Friday two hooded mergansers, and a ring necked duck swam past, and the
wood ducks reappeared briefly.  On Saturday saw the ospreys for the first
time and on Sunday watched them dive.  loons calling too--
today the regular birds are in pre-storm mode moving in and out at the
feeders  (they always seem to pick up the pace when storms are coming) and
with the mallards coming up into the yard to check their usual sources.

The full Loop Road opened this morning but the road up Cadillac Mt. is still 
closed. Most small ponds, beaver ponds, and streams are open but the large 
lakes, Eagle, Echo, and Jordan Pond are still ice covered. Rotten ice with some 
open leads but still 90-95% iced over. There are still snow drifts across 
hiking trails in shaded woods and northern slopes.

From: Ronald Harrell <rharrell9 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 20 Apr 2015 17:40:11 -0400
   Gary and I did the last census for the season this morning.  The number
of species using the bay and the Passagassawakeag River at some time during
the season (September 1 to May 1) were 43.  Today there were 27 species
found.  Highlights was the return of Osprey, and Double-crested Cormorants
are again using the bay "monument" for nesting.  There were also a single
adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, Gadwall, Green-winged Teal, American
Widgeon, and an unknown Scaup species.  Numbers of Herring Gulls and
Mallards were down substantially.

   The full report can be found on ebird by using:

Observation start time: 08:00:00

Total observation time: 5.75 hours

Official Counter:        Derek Lovitch, Jeannette Lovitch

Observers:        

Visitors:

Weather:
It wasn't very nice out. Gusty and increasing winds varied from the east to
the SSE before becoming moderately-strong east by the end of today's count.
A few sprinkles and brief showers after 2pm (EDT) gave way to steady rain
and poor visibility by 2:45, bringing today's count to a soggy end.

Raptor Observations:
Just a few migrants pushed ahead of the approaching system, and even most
local birds took cover today.

Non-raptor Observations:
26 species were seen and/or heard from the summit today, with other
migrants limited to:
12 Double-crested Cormorants
7 Canada Geese
1 Belted Kingfisher
1 Yellow-rumped Warbler

Predictions:
A (perhaps very) wet start to the day as a large area of low pressure
centered just north of the Great Lakes takes hold of our weather. A
secondary area of low pressure is expected to form off the Mid-Atlantic,
and deepen in the Gulf of Maine overnight spinning a lot of rain and wind
our way. Intriguing however, is the forecasted dry slot with warm
temperatures and southerly winds that might reach the area tomorrow
afternoon. If that makes it here, we could get a few hours of productive
hawkwatching in.  If it doesn't make it here, we'll catch up on our
reading.

​Yesterday, in Camden, I stopped to watch the house sparrows that flock
around the thorny hedges in the park across from the library.
I was a bit surprised to see two brown-headed cowbirds hanging out with and
acting like the sparrows. Considering their reproduction nature, is it
possible that they may have been raised by the sparrows?

Subject: Red Crossbills at Saxl Park, Bangor, 04/20
From: Robert Ostrowski <rjostrowski AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:00:16 -0400
Hi everyone,

The highlight of a cloudy midday walk at Saxl Park was running into a group
of 8 Red Crossbills. I had point blank, prolonged views as they fed in the
Norway Spruces that are in the parking lot of the (apparently) unused
building on the eastern edge of the park. This is the building south of the
Maine IF&W office. After watching them for 15 or 20 minutes, they took off
east across State Hospital Dr. and landed in some spruces near the road. It
seemed like they would stick around.

My eBird checklist can be found here:

Good birding!

Went out at dawn to shoot a photo of the sunrise, and heard the unmistakeable 
song of a Hermit Thrush. Seems awfully early, but I know of no other bird song 
like it—and we have resident Hermit Thrushes at our house every year. Anybody 
else hearing one?

Subject: Re: Louisiana Waterthrush
From: Scott Richardson <scott.xot AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:00:18 -0400
Thanks to Linda's post, I finally found a Louisiana Waterthrush -- two, in
fact. The first was loudly audible before I stepped out of the car at 8:20
this morning, singing from just downstream of the bridge. I spent several
fruitless minutes trying to spy the bird before it flew upstream. I
followed to the other side of the bridge and was treated to what looked
like a brief territorial clash. The original male was apparently being
turned back downstream and found a safe spot directly in front of me where
it sang and twirled its tail. The second bird staked a spot nearby and sang
a few times before heading further upstream.

I've always struck out while looking for the species at this traditional
spot and was happy to break the drought.

For those unfamiliar with the location, it's easy to access along Coles
Hill Road off Route 1 in Wells. Be very cautious, as the road twists and
turns and the "parking lot" is more like a shoulder pulloff in a blind spot.

We had just been out earlier on the Eastern Trail looking for some Warblers 
w/o any luck.  He came several times today, checking out many feeders and 
doing a little feeding on the ground.  We have a good variety of foods, 
including dried mealworms, which he seemed to like.  Got a couple of pretty 
cool pics if anyone is interested.  Yeah spring!

With all the Louisiana sightings I decided to go looking. No luck but did hear 
one Northern towards the beginning of the Egypt Rd. in Jefferson. A Palm 
Warbler 

made a brief appearance at the same spot.

Subject: Louisiana Waterthrush Saco
From: "'Noah Gibb' via Maine birds" <maine-birds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sun, 19 Apr 2015 13:05:43 +0000 (UTC)
I finally got a chance to check the Cascade Falls on Cascade Rd today in Saco 
for Louisiana Waterthrush and sure enough, there was one or two down below the 
falls. I learned a few months ago that there was a waterfall down there so I 
had been planning to check this spot in mid April.  

A lot of people are hesitant to post this species in fear of birders taping 
them out of their territory. I am going to be trusting of my fellow birders and 
hope that everyone will be respectful to this uncommon breeding bird in our 
state. If you don't hear it or see it, try again early in the morning. It 
should be singing then! Also a Winter Wren was singing down theyah.

We found the Louisiana Waterthrush at  Merriland River in Wells on Coles
Hill Rd.  We were lucky that the parking lot was full and we had to park on
the other side of the river since the bird was singing right next to the
road. With all the water running we would not have heard it from the
parking lot.

This evening was a spectacular time to go for a good bird walk down to the 
Scarborough Marsh. There were two Great Egrets down on the marsh. On the 
Eastern Trail, I spotted an American Woodcock slowly crossing the trail. 
Cormorants were around the marsh. No rarities seen this evening. Great Birding 
everyone !

Official Counter:        Andrew Wolfgang

Observers:        Alan McKelvy, Lionel Quirion, Zane Baker

Visitors:
49


Weather:
An interesting day of weather at Bradbury! Rain ended the count thirty
minutes early. Overcast skies were mixed with periods of very clear skies
throughout the day, and winds were variable. In the morning winds were
light from the east consistently, then in the afternoon winds changed and
intensified slightly. Often today it felt like a warm spring day with lots
of sun, and then it would quickly turn to a chilly overcast day similar to
the early days of the count.

Raptor Observations:
Today 59 migrants were recorded at the summit. An adult Northern Goshawk
put on a show for some visitors and observers! Sharp-shinned Hawks,
Broad-winged Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Osprey, Northern Harrier, American
Kestrels, and Northern Goshawk were all flying by at close range pleasing
the crowd today!

Non-raptor Observations:
36 species were observed at the summit today. A FOY Chipping Sparrow and
FOY Bumble Bee (looking for some flowers) were signs of spring that our
alert visitors found on a beautiful Saturday!
Other Migrants:

Double-crested Cormorant 177
Tree Swallow 14
Common Grackle 12
Canada Goose 7
Common Merganser 4
Brown-headed Cowbird 3
Red-winged Blackbird 3
Common Loon 2
Palm Warbler 2


Predictions:
Tomorrow looks good for sunshine! It's is predicted to be a beautiful day 
at the summit. Hawk watching should be decent tomorrow, as long as the
predicted winds stay light and are not northeast. But even with NE winds,
it will still be a great day to be at Bradbury!!

FOY warbler - a Pine Warbler just showed up at the feeder!

Yesterday, saw Great Blue Heron up in the meadow; it seemed to have something 
like a grey squirrel tail hanging from beak - ran for binoculars and saw it was 
a furry mammal - too big for mouse or vole; did not see a tail but it was about 
the length of the heron’s beak. He flipped it and then swallowed it whole. My 
first experience with heron eating a mammal!! Then two mature Bald Eagles 
circled overhead; heron stood erect looking up at them, then settle down to 
digest. Lunch was still visible in neck!!

Just heard a Sandhill Crane just down from the corner of Waning and Crowell 
Rds  in Unity.  There's a wet area in the woods. I tried to sneak up and 
catch a look at them but the area is way too brushy and I made a racket so 
they /it went silent.

Subject: Ice is out and the loons are back!
From: Anita Whitney <nitaraewhit AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:36:35 -0700 (PDT)
Always one of my favorite signs of the seasons changing and every year it stays 
the same, the ice goes out of the pond and the loons return within a couple 
hours or less. Such a great sound to hear. Today was the day! The mated pair we 
have every year returned this afternoon and they were joined by a welcome third 
before sunset. We've speculated that the third one is their offspring from a 
few years ago. Number 3 seems to stick around and help drive off other loon 
couples looking to nest before taking off and just coming to visit a few times. 
It's the only one they seem to like having around and go fishing with. Not sure 
if maybe he hasn't settled down with a mate of his own yet. Pure speculation on 
our part. Anyone with any insight on that? Thanks! - Anita

The SURFBIRD continues. Initially seen at 1:20pm today from marsh
behind former Hattie's Restaurant roosting on westernmost rock pile
(3rd from yacht club) with 12 Ruddy Turnstones. The birds then flew
directly south to nearest mudflat, where I watched them forage for
about 30 minutes. A Snowy Owl and a Northern Harrier were also
present.

Total observation time: 7 hours

Official Counter:        Andrew Wolfgang

Observers:        Alan McKelvy, Jeannette Lovitch, Steve Barker, Zane Baker 


Visitors:
13


Weather:
The morning started with rain, and there was a brief delay during the
morning showers when the count was postponed for an hour. Once the rain
moved out, partly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and favorable winds set
up great conditions for hawk watching.

Raptor Observations:
Today 52 raptors were recorded at Bradbury. Despite favorable conditions
not a great day for migrants. We did see small numbers of Broad-winged
Hawks, Sharp-shinned Hawks, and Ospreys migrating in loose groups. 

Non-raptor Observations:
Other migrants for today:

Tree Swallow 5
Warbler sp. 4
Palm Warbler 3
Brown-headed Cowbird 2
Double-crested Cormorant 1
Northern Flicker 1


Predictions:
Winds are supposed to be out of the east tomorrow, but if they become more
southerly birds may be moving when the sun is out! The morning is our best
chance for sun tomorrow. Clouds and occasional showers are predicted in the
afternoon. Hopefully the rain holds off, and we see more hawks and less
rain tomorrow!

While driving home on Wilson District Road today I stopped, again, to look
at a small flock of Rusty Blackbirds (in roughly the same place they were
yesterday).  While I was there a Black-backed Woodpecker flew across the
road from a neighboring yard and landed in a large spruce tree!!

At home we heard our FOY Northern Flicker.

Subject: Benton owl again.....sorry
From: Bruce Bartrug <bbartrug AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 07:27:42 -0400
Jees, I don't mean to be a pain, and I don't want to appear to be arguing
with Kirsten, but I'm slightly perplexed about the possible male harrier.
I assumed -- probably incorrectly, as are most assumptions :) -- that the
bird in question was flying away from the observers and was all white, as
would be an owl.  Male harriers are gray above, although they could
certainly appear whiter in certain light, as do gulls more than
occasionally.

A clincher would be that harriers have a distinctive flight pattern:  they
soar with a slight dihedral like vultures, only interspersed occasionally
with powered flight.  If that was the flight pattern observed I'm certain
the bird in question was male harrier.  If not, we'll have to make other
suggestions, as I don't believe I've seen (in my sixty years in the field)
a harrier fly with continuous flapping flight for any distance.

Harriers can also look a bit like owls from certain angles.  Although their
heads are smaller than most owls, they have a similar facial pattern.  A
pattern that more than one ornithologist has suggested serves the same
purpose in harriers as in owls......it directs sound to their ears.

Cheers,
BAB

Walking along Charles Jordan Road yesterday morning, I encountered what was
(for me anyway) a surprising sight - a flock of 25 Palm Warblers working the
hay field beside the road, accompanied by 5 or so Pine Warblers. Of course,
we are all used to seeing Palms at this time of year, but a flock so large?
New to me!

Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 20:35:37 -0400
We birded the Pleasant River today and saw FOY Belted Kingfisher, Tree
Swallows and a nice pair of  Pintails.  On our way home from birding the
Addison ponds and the Pleasant River we saw a flock of 20 Rusty Blackbirds
cross the road.  We stopped and watched them for a while and enjoyed their
gurgles and squeaks.  We were happy it's only about 2 miles from our
house!

Three bright Purple Finches and 2 Fox Sparrows were at our feeders when we
got home as well as a breeding plumage Red-throated Loon was in Flat Bay.
The loon was joined by 5 Ring-necked Ducks - FOY for us at Flat Bay.

A female Northern Cardinal has been at our feeder for two days now.  Birds
keep popping up!

the loons came in this morning (across the pond), calling from a much
smaller patch of open water than usual--by afternoon, much more of the pond
was open so they had a fairly long clear area.
on my side of the pond, several wood ducks appeared in the strip of open
water near the shore--and four climbed the banks foraging in the yard and
under the feeder--it was a delight to see them--

At Donnabeth Lippman Park in Windham while looking for black-backed 
woodpecker.  Black bird of the right size did fly in front of my vehicle, 
cross the road and keep going.  Could have been the the woodpecker but I'm 
certainly not making an ID based on that quick glimpse.  Maybe tomorrow.

...or a white-morph Gyrfalcon?  That would better fit the described color 
and size profile, and this is the time of year when they are on the move. 
 My only lifetime view of a white Gyr was from directly underneath and too 
far away to observe the pattern on the wingtips, so I can't speak from 
personal experience - but in photos it looks like the whole trailing edge 
of the wing can be black, including the tips.

To all:

Makes a great recommendation. After looking at the photos of the
Northern Harrier, we think she is correct.

Thanks Kristen.

Allan


   I would look at images of a male Northern Harrier. Snowy Owl would not
have black wingtips.

Kristen


Very possibly a male harrier, however a harrier is not bigger than an
osprey, nor is it white on the topside, as is either a snowy owl or snow
goose.

Still there as of 1:30.  This bird spent 40 minutes at the top of the two 
dead 80-foot pines on the left about 100 feet before the parking area. 
Busily feeding most of the time, spent 10 minutes resting on the east side 
of one of the pines.  Seemed to be adult female - no yellow on head.  Many 
poor quality photos, but they can be accessed on Flickr -

I love this time of year, with all of the migrants returning. A few notable
first-of-the-years from the past few days birding around Mount Desert
Island:

Yesterday (Wednesday (15 April):
* Belted Kingfisher at Beaver Dam Pond in Acadia National Park
* Yellow-bellied Flycatcher at Beaver Dam Pond; this is a good bird on MDI
anytime, and it was particularly early
* Hermit Thrush at Sieur de Monts Spring in Acadia National Park
* Palm Warbler at Sieur de Monts Spring

Today (Thursday, 16 April):
* Green-winged Teal in Bass Harbor Marsh
* Common Merganser in Somes Pond
* Osprey at Maine Coast Heritage Trust¹s Kelly Preserve in Bass Harbor
* Broad-winged Hawk at Maine Coast Heritage Trust¹s Kelly Preserve in Bass
Harbor
* Killdeer at the Kelly Preserve in Bass Harbor
* Northern Flicker at the Kelly Preserve in Bass Harbor
* Eastern Bluebird at the Kelly Preserve in Bass Harbor
* Savannah Sparrow at the Kelly Preserve in Bass Harbor

Subject: Brown Thrasher
From: "Boots." <bootsg AT gmail.com>

Hancock County, Franklin, ME

First Brown Thrasher in over 15 years!
I was out by a field and heard a mimic. My first, skeptical thought was
Mockingbird?!

I wasn't able to pursue it at the time. Later this morning I was near the
same field and saw a decidedly thrush-like rufous tinted bird. Before I
could get my binoculars on it it flew into an apple tree and again I was
unable to pursue. About 1/2 hour later I was back and saw a thrush-like
bird in the tangle of another apple tree. This time I got my binoculars on
it but the branches of the tree were not giving me a good view. I was
confident I had a Brown Thrasher given the mimicry I had heard earlier. I
caught a glimpse of its yellow eye and then put my camera up. I struggled
to focus on the bird, not the branches. I managed to get a few shots,
though all obscured the bird somewhat with branches.

I posted it to eBird with a photo.

I also saw Wild Turkey's sharing a cloacal kiss! Male turkey balanced for a
long time on top of her before attempting the cloacal contact. If that
ain't spring I don't know what is!

Boots.

​Starting with some wood ducks and hooded mergansers, with a great blue
heron and some mallards, the little Old Town beaver pond continued to
populate. Ship Harbor trail served up a few ruby-crowned kinglets on the
wooded trail. Surf scooters and common eiders were prevalent at sea. Some
American black ducks and a (green-winged teal?) got surprised in a small
cove. Lots of gulls, I was in awe of all the black-backed gulls. A very
pleasant day in the Sewall/Bass Harbor area.

3 ruby crowned kinglets on the Goodhue Road in Sidney--I don't usually see
them there. They are fun to watch.

an Osprey flying over Rt. 27 towards Messalonskee. Open water near the Rt.
27 bridge held lots of ducks, but I didn't have time to look.

Woodcock peenting at 5 a.m. today in the field next door. Now waiting for
peepers.

Scarborough Marsh today on west side across from visitor center
Oddball heron-thingeee. I'm going to assume that this is an immature Little 
Blue Heron. However, it's confusing as it has yellow feet. I thought they had 
black feet? And, it was smaller than a Snowy egret. I thought they were the 
same size. Photos on link below. I have a comparison photo here of the bird 
with a Great Egret and a Snowy. The bird was a little ways away, but got 
reasonable diagnostic photos, side view and back and spread winged. 

I would appreciate any thoughts on this from the audience. 
Met Jay and Jane Stormer. GREAT folks and sort of my neighbors.

A pine warbler and palm warbler met briefly in my back yard this afternoon. The 
palm ventured to forage at the lawn's edge, while the pine moved to a front 
suet feeder for several minutes. A dozen-sized flock of tree swallows winging 
over the river in Warren village and an osprey overhead. Several R-b kinglets 
also in the neighborhood.
