heard a cardinal calling a week ago (2/27) and heard the first doves today
(actually thought I heard them yesterday but confirmed it today)--a few
robins are around too--
otherwise still have the daily birds--a flicker (occasionally two), and a
hairy and a downy woodpecker --(sometimes see the red bellied woodpecker
but not daily), tufted titmice, chickadees, wb nuthatches, bluejays, doves,
juncos--haven't seen finches since december .  I still can't reach the
areas where I usually leave food for the crows or the mallards so the crows
come in at dawn and then come in and out  during the day to check the areas
I can reach (around the feeders)--and the mallards come in  at dusk--from
four to thirty of them--wonderful landing patterns in the snow.

Hey everyone:

I had a great time leading a trip out of the Fields Pond Audubon Center to 
cover the ‘Greater Bangor Area' today. The bright and sunny day was a nice 
reminder that spring is on its way, plus a few standout birds made for an all 
around good day. Many thanks to everyone who came along and it was especially 
fun to bird with some of central Maine’s best - Bruce, Don, Kyle, John, and 
Jerry; always a pleasure. 


Here are a few of the highlights:

Snowy Owl - an apparent immature male continued this morning at the Hampden 
Industrial Park, located off Route 202. 


Bald Eagle - behavioral highlight: pair at nest and carrying new material in 
Veazie. 


Peregrine Falcon - one of the residents put on a nice show over the Penobscot 
River, viewed from Front Street in Bangor. 


Northern Saw-whet Owl - great spotting by Bruce along Route 2, just past State 
Hospital Drive. https://flic.kr/p/qz5J9A 


Bohemian Waxwings - while they are starting to fill in southern Maine, they 
were abundant around Bangor and we saw hundreds, mostly incidents as we drove 
around. 


Good birding,

The problem with black-backed woodpeckers is that they tease you
mercilessly. They leave lots of clues to tell you where they were, and where
they might still be. 

I was recruited to do a birding weekend at the Flagstaff Hut of the Maine
Huts & Trails, with a trailhead off the Long Falls Dam Road beyond Lexington
Township. This is one of my favorite winter roads since it is the closest
boreal habitat to central Maine. On a walk this morning, I was pleased to
have a very cooperative boreal chickadee behind the hut, because the region
was otherwise a birding desert this morning. This is a great road for
finches, but there were simply none present. Fortunately, after the walk, a
few diehards joined me on a little more exploration, mostly along the
Carrying Place Road and North Bowtown Road, in the vicinity of Pierce Pond.
One.yes, one.white-winged crossbill flew over.

 

But I pointed out the woodpecker signs to the others and was gratified to
have a female black-backed woodpecker fly in soon after. 

 

There is a straight stretch of the Long Falls Dam Road about a half mile
beyond the Flagstaff Hut trailhead. There's a frozen wetland on the right.
On the left, there was so much woodpecker damage that the area screamed
black-backed woodpecker. Some of it was so fresh, the stripped bark was
sitting on top of the snow, obviously put there since the last storm. There
is clearly a little bugger working those woods, but we ran out of time and
didn't locate it. But it's got to be there. I'll give a dollar to the first
one who finds it.

Hi all,

I'm with Paul. I've used nothing else for over 20 years since I had my first 
scope. The "blue" Loctite or "Medium Strength" (I believe) Threadlocker are a 
simple, durable, and cheap solution. 


These are both "breakable" with little effort (as opposed to true glues) so you 
can change equipment when needed. An extra "base plate" for the tripod head for 
your camera will reduce the effort even further. 


A single bottle, which costs just a few bucks, will last years. Once a year - 
maybe twice if you use it often - break the seal, scrape it out with a 
toothpick or end of a paper clip, and reapply. And make sure to use the 
set-screw on your Manfrotto, Gitzo, or other good tripod heads. 


This is a super easy solution, dirt cheap, and unlike drilling into the scope, 
will not void the warranty! 


In fact, it's so quick and easy, that if anyone drops by the store (Jeannette 
and I will be back from a vacation tomorrow) with 30 seconds to spare (and its 
best to do after you're done birding for the day), we'll apply some for free. 


- Derek

Subject: Wobbly tripods
From: Bruce Bartrug <bbartrug AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 7 Mar 2015 16:05:29 -0500
The best fix, other than the extremely good one described by Peter Vickery,
is to use an Arca-Swiss type clamp on the tripod head.  As in this one from
Winberley (or others, including Manfrotto):
http://www.tripodhead.com/images/C-10-large.jpg.  The plates that attach to
the scope can be purchased with a raised edge that prevents rotation.  Too,
the plates are mounted to the scope with an L-wrench type screw, where
considerable pressure can be applied to keep it from loosening.  (This
would be the location for a bit of nail polish or lock-tite.)  This is
probably best if you also use the tripod for photography, as plates are
available for every camera in the universe, which allows the tripod and
clamp to be used with a variety of equipment.

Cheers,
BAB

From: Ronald Harrell <rharrell9 AT gmail.com>

Gary Gulezian and I conducted this census.  It was a sunny morning with
little or no wind and only moderately cold (9-14 F) temperatures.  The snow
is still deep, requiring snowshoes to access two of our birding points, but
all in all, it was a pleasant morning of birding.  There was lots to see:
1296 birds total with the number of species (16)  recovering somewhat from
the low numbers of preceding weeks.  Birding highlights included 8 male
Northern Pintails (upstream from the Rt 1 bridge across the
Passagassawakeag River), an adult Peregrine Falcon perched on an abutment
of the same bridge, and 1 first cycle Iceland Gull (with a flock of Herring
Gulls at the west end of the footbridge).  As usual Herring Gulls (832) and
Mallards (293) dominated the numbers.

Subject: Northern Maine Birds: Xanthochromic ? Evening Grosbeak, Woodland
From: Bill Sheehan <bill.j.sheehan AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 7 Mar 2015 13:09:36 -0500
I've enjoyed reading the recent reports and seeing photos of
aberrantly-pigmented birds being spotted in southern Maine.   I thought I'd
chime in with the sighting of an unusual Evening Grosbeak that has been
observed in northern Maine since back in January.

The bird was first seen by Brenda and Alton Ketch at Madawaska Lake.  It is
bright yellow over most of its body and gives the initial impression of a
great big canary.  The Ketch's hosted the bird and its flock,in their yard
for over a month before it moved on.

This AM I was excited to find the same critter in my yard (about 12 miles
south of Madawaska Lake).  The grosbeak with about 80 normally plumaged
Evening Grosbeaks and I was able to get a few pics before it departed.

I put a few of my photos of the grosbeak on my Flickr photostream:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/71911844 AT N04/16536924377/

On the Northern Maine Birds Blog, I also posted some of Brenda's great
shots from earlier in the month as well as a collage with side-by-side
comparison our photos of the bird in similar poses to show its the same
individual.
http://northernmainebirds.blogspot.com/

A real interesting bird to study.  It made me do some homework on
pigmentation problems in Evening Grosbeak.  I learned what "non-melanic
schizochroic" plumage is.

Good Birding

Bill

Another trick to cope with loosening bolts/nuts is to put a small drop of super 
glue on the end of the threads. Effective and usually easily undone when there 
is a need to take the scope off. Dick McWilliams

The 3 small crabapples across the street from the Plant Home in Bath continue 
to attract Bohemian Waxwings. This morning, the flock numbered a few greater 
than 125, all alternating feeding in the trees, scavenging on the ground or in 
the gutter, and loafing (noisily) in the row of tall maples (?) in front of the 
Home. 


Photo Ops galore, either using your car as a blind, or stashing it and walking 
up to the trees.

Loctite. The blue version. I've used it for 30+ years on numerous scopes. 
And most any anything else that involves a screw or bolt for that matter. 
They never loosen nor wiggle. Can find it at any hardware for about $3.

Subject: Wobbly telescopes on tripods
From: Peter Vickery <crescentchest AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 6 Mar 2015 14:29:34 -0500
For some 40 years I’ve been frustrated that my various scopes would loosen 
from the tripod plate that holds the scope to the tripod. I know many other 
birders experience this as well. Screwdrivers and wenches just don’t apply 
enough force to keep the scope in place. 


I don’t know why it took me so long but I brought the scope to our Richmond 
machinist, Jim Begin. He’s fixed many things for me over the years and is 
venerated by all Richmond residents for his skill and the clever way he 
approaches his various challenges. And there was a Va Opossum in his yard! 


He squinted at my scope and plate for a while and then decided to tap two 
tightly threaded holes through the plate and through the footing of the 
telescope. He then installed two special bolts through the plate and into the 
scope. The result is wonderful. There are now three bolts attaching the plate 
to the scope - absolutely no scope wiggle. 


I would be careful about having anyone who is not a master machinist perform 
this process. Jim was very precise about the thread size and there is no 
slippage of any sort. Jim was very reasonable, <$30, and called me within an 
hour. He indicated he’d be willing to do this for other birders. His contact: 
737-2888. I’d suggest making an appointment, dropping off your scope, birding 
Green Point or the Abby (as long as someone else has a scope) and then picking 
the scope up in an hour or so. 


I can only say it’s a delightful to have a tight scope. I just don’t know 
why it took me so long. 


Speaking of scopes and binoculars,if you’re in thinking about new optics, 
it’s a very good time to look into purchasing new, and probably used, 
equipment. The strength of the US dollar has had a dramatic affect of scope 
prices. If you’re in the market, this is a good time to look into a purchase. 


FYI, this message has vetted by the moderator.

Best,

Peter

I love this story!  Have always loved and been fascinated by crows, though 
I have not coaxed any to my platform feeder--the Blue Jays always snag the 
peanuts in shell within abut 1 1/2 minutes!  I bet that wonderful little 
girl is hooked for life on the joys of birds!

A Lapland Longspur and two Horned Larks are feeding daily along Overlock Hill 
Rd (off North Union Road at RTE 17 and Clarry Hill intersection) in Union. The 
birds favored the dirt roadsides and snow banks, but are loyal to a certain 
plowed gravel driveway on the right about a mile beyond the Overlock Hill turn.

Subject: Leucistic Bohemian Waxwing in 50+ flock of Bohemian Waxwings
From: Ernie <photoblazer.hall404 AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 4 Mar 2015 10:39:08 -0800 (PST)
Took a walk out in the field & amongst the normal Bohemian Waxwings is one 
leucistic one. It is in the apple trees feeding on apples left on the tree. 
It is on 124 Beedy Road, in Jay, ME. about 50 yards from the house so 
snowshoes are needed to see it if the flock hangs around. I have seen a 
flock of 50+ birds each day since 28 February, though this is the first 
time spotting the leucistic one. I'll include a link to some photos. anyone 
interested in coming out to try to catch it or get more info can contact me 
at 781-856-0175.

Here's the link to a few of the photos:

Got an eye-level view of a Goshawk this morning walking out of the barn this am 
as he was hot on the tail of one of my ducks (unsuccessful, duck dove past me 
to shelter). Would have been a pretty big meal to bring down, birds getting 
desperate out there.

     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!

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.

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.

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.

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

From: Joy Bishop <redhonda1994 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 07:38:39 -0800 (PST)
I am going to be on Monhegan Island, ME September 20-24 and would love to join 
a birding group (either formally or informally). Does anyone know of a 
naturalist or group I could contact? 


Thanks very much.

Best,
joy

Subject: OT: Program tonight (2/25): Extinctions in America
From: Doug Hitchcox <dhitchcox AT mac.com>
Date: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 15:07:59 -0500
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,


Doug Hitchcox

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!!

About 25 Bohemian Waxwings flew over my house in Kennebunk this morning. 
They appeared to be heading toward the Brown Street/Day Street area where 
the big Robin flock tends to hang out. 

Cheers,

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.

From: Florence Maguire <flomag AT maine.rr.com>

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.

Feb 24, 2015 7:25 AM - 11:00 AM
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

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

Subject: Dead Saw-whet in Warren
From: Don and Sherry Reimer <sherreal AT hotmail.com>

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:

Driving through Greenbush on Spring Ridge Road and saw 2 dozen Evening 
Grosbeaks this AM. Nice since many have told me they haven't seen any this 
year.

Subject: RE: Barred Owl
From: Kathleen Zwick <azwickfish AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2015 15:27:10 -0500
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.

Allow me to add to the tally. A large flock, well over fifty, in three 
crabapple trees on Dirigo Drive in Brewer. They were actually in the Bangor 
Federal Credit Union parking lot. I didn't see any Cedars with them.
