Subject: Unfamiliar Bird Call
From: Chris Petherick <cpetherick AT me.com>
Date: Sat, 18 Apr 2015 19:13:50 +0000 (GMT)
Hello All,
If anyone can help me identify a bird call I have recorded, that would be 
wonderful! Please back-channel me and I can send you the recording. 


I was at a marsh last evening and I heard this call, which was fairly loud, 
implying to me, at least, that the bird was larger, not a wren or blackbird 
sized bird. It was a 3 note call - the first 2 notes were somewhat short and 
quieter, with the third note more drawn out, noticeably louder and of a higher 
pitch. It would repeat this 3 note call for about 45 seconds to a minute then 
would be silent for 10 minutes. It had a second call which seemed to be more of 
a "alarm" call. It consisted of probably 6 or 7 notes, all loud, almost like a 
staccato dog-bark like call (not a short-eared owl bark - louder and the notes 
are longer). 


As I said, I have a recording of the first call, not of the second. I've gone 
through a number of marsh bird calls with no luck yet. 


Thanks!

Subject: Red-necked grebe not found in Onalaska
From: Mary Strasser <mrstrass AT msn.com>
Date: Sat, 18 Apr 2015 11:59:50 -0500
At 8:30 this morning, I tried for the red-necked grebe that had been sighted on 
Lake Onalaska by two La Crosse area birders yesterday. Today there were strong 
southeast winds over Lake Onalaska near the airport area where the grebe was 
seen yesterday. There was no waterfowl visible today from the overlook by the 
giant sunfish sculpture along the lake on HWY 35. I only saw a couple of gulls 
flying off in the distance and a pair of pelicans flying over the area.

Drew Goldberg located and photographed and American avocet on the beach at 
South Metro pier earlier this morning. I just relocated the bird at South 
Milwaukee Yachtclub at the southern end of Grant Park. It was being chased by a 
gull, heading south, and looks to have landed back towards South Metro pier.

Lydia Doerr found and photographed a SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER in Door County 
at 11am this morning. It was near the intersection of Old Stage Rd & Woodcrest 
Rd. This is between Rowleys Bay and Cty Q. This appears to tie the 2nd earliest 
record in the state for this species. Thanks to Lydia for promptly reporting to 
the records committee and eBirding this great find!

Subject: Great Gray Owl - Bayfield County
From: Ryan Brady <ryanbrady10 AT hotmail.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:42:37 -0600
Local DNR biologist Todd Naas photographed a Great Gray Owl in west-central 
Bayfield County yesterday. The bird was seen in pine barrens habitat south of 
Iron River. I searched for it this morning to sleuth out nesting potential 
(unlikely) but was unable to relocate it. More likely an overwintering bird 
headed north again.

Subject: Some first of years in Milwaukee
From: Jennifer Ambrose <jenthreat AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:54:05 -0500
Greetings!
I saw a few first of year birds today (I birded South Shore Yacht Club,
Havenwoods State Forest, and Wilson Park), including Barn Swallows,
Yellow-rumped Warbler (at least 2 dozen feasting on midges at Wilson), a
Blue-gray Gnatcather (Wilson) and a lovely Brown Thrasher (Havenwoods).
Wilson boasted ELEVEN Pied-billed Grebes! Many Tree Swallows were checking
out nest boxes, some Bluebirds were hanging around, and a pair of Eastern
Meadowlarks were singing at Havenwoods. Many Red-breasted Mergansers have
been lingering at the yacht club and have been present at Wilson. It was a
nice day for some casual birding.

And, according to their website, the Old Marsh Rd. will be open the following 
weekend (April 24-27) for hiking. This is the annual Earth Day weekend special 
opening - otherwise, you'll have to wait until June before it's open again.

covers that. No need to form a team-your tour IS your team. Plus, a birding 
expert is leading you to a known hotspot, so you're sure to see many wonderful 
birds! This tour registration fee of $75 serves as your tax-deductible donation

Had my first Henslow's Sparrow calling this morning prior to starting a

numerous Savanna Sparrows and Eastern Meadowlarks, but I have yet to hear
or see a Grasshopper Sparrow or Bobolink. Soon, I'm sure.

The full report from last weekend's WSO field trip to Mead Wildlife Area is
now available at: http://wsobirds.org/about-wso/news. There was a nice mix
of lingering wintering species like Lapland Longspur and Rough-legged Hawk
and early spring migrants like Eastern Phoebe, Northern Harrier, Eastern
Meadowlark, and lots of waterfowl. Thanks to Myles Hurlburt and Rob
Pendergast for co-leading this trip!

Subject: Red-Necked Grebe on Lake Onalaska (near La Crosse)
From: Dan Jackson <DanJackson AT LBWhite.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:51:58 +0000
Doug Stratton found a Red-necked Grebe on Lake Onalaska this morning and I was 
able to see it on my way to work at about 7:45 AM. When I saw it, I had parked 
at the overlook with the big Sunfish on the west side of Hwy 35 in Onalaska. At 
that time, the bird was hanging out with a flock of 10 Horned Grebes and some 
Lesser Scaup near one of the middle runway light stands that extend out into 
the lake northwest of that overlook. It was too far out to be seen with 
binoculars, but there is a scope there that should allow it to be seen. 


There were also lots of Pelicans and coot out on the lake and there are still 
quite a few ducks. 


Thanks to Doug for sharing a great find!!

Good birding,

Subject: Loons on Lake Monona (Madison)
From: Peter Fissel <peter.fissel AT wisc.edu>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:44:04 +0000
I forgot to post this last night. On my way home from work yesterday, I stopped 
to scope Lake Monona from the Olin Park boat launch. I counted 28 Common Loons, 
and I'm sure I missed a few around the edges. Not a lot else out there - a few 
Common Mergansers, Mallards and Coots was about it. A passing biker asked if 
I'd seen the Osprey fly over shortly before, but I missed it. 


The lake is like glass this morning - I could see a few Loons out off of 
Olbrich Park on the east side as my bus went up Atwood Ave.

Subject: Detour to Honey Creek (Sauk Co.)
From: Peter Fissel <peter.fissel AT wisc.edu>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:31:05 +0000
For those going to either Saturday's Baraboo Hills Spring Birds and Wildflower 
Hike (led by Mike Mossman through MAS,) or May's WSO Birdathon/Bandathon at 
Honey Creek SNA in Sauk Co., be aware that there is a detour on County PF west 
of Sauk City, due a bridge closure between Church and Slotty Rds. If coming 
from the north on Hwy 12, you would want to take County C to PF and proceed 
west/north from there to Skyview Dr. If coming from the west, again, take 
County C to PF. From the south or east (i.e., if going through Sauk City,) take 
Hwy 60 west from Hwy 12 to County O, and then either County E or C north to PF 
(the "official" detour is O to E to PF.) Alphabet soup, anyone? 


According to the Sauk County website, the detour is expected to last until late 
May.

From: "Spencer Stehno" <pensacola634 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 23:05:41 -0500
Visited Paradise Valley Wildlife Area Waukesha County west of Dousman
-Kincaid Lane.  Went N. until water is too high to get to Ice Age Trail;
went W. to Blind until water is too high to go further west. Started out
cool & cloudy, mid morning sun started showing and temps went up to 70, very
warm out in marsh, little breeze. While there were around 50 species, the
numbers of birds is way down compared to past couple weeks. Many ducks gone;
geese fewer; redwings fewer; sky with 10's of birds flying compared to
hundreds to thousand of birds two weeks ago. Virtually no shorebirds.

I had one here this evening, Tom. It popped up out of a flower bed. This is a 
bit early for them (and it wasnt singing), so I tried to make it into a Winter 
Wren, but the tail was too long - and once I got a better look, it turned out 
to be a House Wren! Its a good thing I got a good look, as eBird made me 
verify it. 

We've had a Carolina Wren in the neighborhood, too - singing. Nice!

Subject: Barn Swallows are back in Waukesha
From: Korkor Mary <marykorkor AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:21:52 -0500
I had my first barn swallows this week. They were checking out the outside on 
Thursday, and today ventured in. They seem uncomfortable with the concept of my 
barn although I have had dozens of them for years. I wonder if these are early, 
young scouts on their first foray into pioneering the colony. They will do well 
for themselves by accepting my invitation!

Listened to a Carolina Wren calling this morning from near the bluff and
adjacent to the parking lot where the bluff construction is taking place in
Grant Park.  In the past two years, they have nested along the Oak Creek
Parkway further south, though I had a pair on the 2011 CBC further north
along the bluff. FOYgnatcatcher  and the continuing Pine Warbler near the
golf course, and observed a nesting Robin fighting off a half dozen English
House Sparrows at the Beach House.

Subject: Field Trip Opportunity: Spruce Grouse, May 1
From: "Brady, Ryan S - DNR" <Ryan.Brady AT wisconsin.gov>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 16:00:38 +0000
Hello birders,

Space is still available for my Natural Resources Foundation field trip, In 
Search of Spruce Grouse. The trip will be held (short of heavy rain/snow/wind) 
on the morning of Friday, May 1, near the town of Clam Lake in southwestern 
Ashland County. Cost is $100, most of which goes to NRF's Bird Protection Fund 
and the high priority bird conservation projects it supports. 


Barring unforeseen bad luck, you will be treated to displaying Spruce Grouse at 
close range in off-road forest habitats. We may also stumble onto some other 
boreal birds but we'll be focusing on the grouse. I can also promise some 
wonderful scenery and good company. Participants will receive more details 
after signing-up. 


To register visit http://www.cvent.com/d/qrq07s/4W and use the passcode JoinNRF 
to get a discounted NRF membership. The Spruce Grouse trip is #11 in NRF's 
spectacular lineup of 151 field trips statewide this year. 


I hope some of you can join us.

Ryan

We are committed to service excellence.

Had 2 Pine Siskins at my tray feeder today.  Haven't seen any since 
November!  A pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers are thinking about nesting in a 
tall dead Cottonwood stump on my lawn.  In the past, European Starlings have 
forced out anything considering nesting in the holes.  Also had a female 
Brown-headed Cowbird bathing in the bath.  Looking forward to more spring 
"yard firsts"!

I took advantage of being up near Baraboo for a work meeting to do a bit of
quick birding at Devils Lake (Burma Road).
Had a pair of Louisiana waterthrushes chipping, singing, and flying up and
down the stream gorge.  Also, my first chipping sparrow of the year and
first blue-gray gnatcatcher of the year.  Other migrants included flicker,
hermit thrush, ruby-crowned kinglet, and yellow-rumped warbler.

Juncos and pine siskins are still hanging around my neighborhood in Fort
Atkinson.

Happy spring,

I had an email from Jim Otto, who was surveying his Atlas blocks in Jackson Co. 
yesterday (not a lot happening yet - bit early.) He reports finding two male 
Red Crossbills picking grit in the company of Pine Siskins on North Settlement 
Rd. near Millston in the morning. He also had a pumping Amer. Bittern late in 
the day. 


And, apparently there is a bountiful crop of wood ticks out already - joy. That 
means there are also deer ticks, so take precautions.

Subject: Prairie Warbler at the Linnwood Water Treatment Plant “Magic Hedge” MKE 4/15/15, some images...
From: Jim Edlhuber <jimedlhuber AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:21:01 -0500
Hi all,
I made the run into Milwaukee very early this morning with hopes to see the
reported Prairie Warbler. The Prairie Warbler was reported yesterday early
morning and remained at this location for most of the day. This hedge is
just south of the treatment plant on Lake Michigan on Milwaukee’s
lakefront. I arrived at the reported location at 6:20 am. Another birder
Laurie was already on site looking for the Prairie Warbler but could not
locate it. We both looked hard up and down the hedge for about 30 minutes
and then I spotted the Prairie Warbler high in one of the 2 spruce trees.
Moments later a Kinglet was spotted in the same tree. Action stopped and we
both left the area. I birded Lake Park for well over an hour and not much
as going on. I end my walk on the north end of the park on Memorial Drive
with about 5 birders looking around that area for yesterdays report of the
Screech Owl but the owl was no where to be seen. I thought I would walk
over and check the “Magic Hedge” once more. In only a couple of minutes I
spotted the Prairie Warbler up in the spruce where I had saw it earlier.
They don’t call this hedge “Magic Hedge” for no reason. The Prairie 
Warbler 

flew out of the spruce tree into the hedge. I feed actively for about 5
minutes down east to the lake on the hedge. It feed on the ground there
some. It returned west on the hedge back and flew right back into the
spruce tree. It remained there for the next 30 minutes and then I left the
area. The Magic Hedge has produced some great birds over the years and
should be check often. A big thank you to Andy Cassini for finding this
great bird and getting the word out for others to come and try for it. Not
a life bird for me as I found a Prairie Warbler a couple years ago up in
Lake Park just up the hill from this location.

Good evening, I saw the report of a Prairie Warbler, this morning at Lake
Park, and of course I'm stuck at work.  I left early and went down there
this afternoon.  I relocated it, along the fence line, on the west side of
the hedge.  It was constantly moving around eating insects.  I watched it
for awhile and it preferred two trees just on the other side of the fence.
I met another birder, Spencer, and while we were watching it, it flew
across the lot, towards Lincoln Memorial Dr.  We decided to try and find
it.  It's a good thing we did. We walked over there, and immediately
Spencer says, "Screech Owl!"  Sure enough, sitting in a tree was an Eastern
Screech Owl.  While we took a few pictures of the owl, the Prairie Warbler
came pretty close to us and provided some very good looks.  There were also
a handful of RC kinglets,YR warblers and 1 Eastern Phoebe.  What an
afternoon it turned out be, and a great way start to the warbler season!  I
have a few pictures of the two birds if you're interested, at the link

Since the field along Birch Rd. flooded last week with the heavy rains it 
has attracted a variety of birds. Today I found Canada Geese, Mallards, 
Northern Shovelers, Blue-winged and Green-winged teal, a pair of wood 
ducks, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and for the first time I believe at 
that location a Pied-billed Grebe. Also 1 Ring-billed gull with dozens of 
Bonaparte's Gulls. A male Northern Harrier also made a brief appearance. As 
long as the water is there I will be checking this spot daily to see what 
else shows up.

Further clarification. The hedge is north of a rugby field, not a soccer
field. Looks like American football goal posts, not soccer goals. There is
a soccer field on the west side of Lincoln Memorial Drive near there. So
don't look for a soccer field. The hedge between the water treatment plant
and the rugby field was always a great place to bird when I lived in
Milwaukee...

Subject: Re: Prairie Warbler in the magic hedge: clarifying location
From: Andy Cassini <agcassini AT wisc.edu>
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:40:43 -0500
Clarifying location for Prairie Warbler sighting:

The bird was seen right next to Lake Michigan in the hedge immediately south of 
the Water Treatment Plant fence, north of the large soccer field right next to 
the lake. This is east of Lake Park on the lake side of Lincoln Memorial Drive. 
Best to use the parking lot for the entrance into the water treatment plant. He 
was actively fly catching and working the hedge on the end nearest to the lake. 
He was on the south side of the hedge from 3ft - 15 ft high. I hope this helps.

Subject: More AOL trouble
From: Peter Fissel <peter.fissel AT wisc.edu>
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 17:15:24 +0000
A heads-up to subscribers with aol.com email addresses - many of them just 
popped up on the Error Watch report from Freelists yet again (this, after the 
last watch had expired for all of them at the end of March.) The AOL email 
servers do not get along with Freelists emails. Listowner Tom Sykes is about 
fed up with this ongoing issue, and may stop allowing aol.com addresses to 
resubscribe if they get kicked off by the Freelists server. We both strongly 
urge anyone with an aol.com email address to sign up for a free gmail account, 
even if you only use it for Wisbirdn (some people like to do that anyway, even 
if they don't have an AOL account.) 


Technology is great - when it works...

I found a widely spaced group of Wild Turkeys in the Longnecker Gardens of the 
UW Arboretum, Madison this am. The Toms were goggling and strutting. The males 
heads were engorged, and colored bight crimson and blue. Great fun to observe 
from a distance with a long lens and binocs. 

Below is a link to my pictures.

Reported Birds That
Give Me The Giggles:


(For some, results of spellcheck.  For others, lack thereof.)


        
Swanson's Hawks - probably taste like chicken

 

        
Show Goose - vagrant from Las Vegas

 

        
Surf Scooter - endemic to Hawaii?

 

        
Mergs - on ramp masters of eight lane highways

 

        
Ruffled Grouse - very formal, closely related to full plumage Ruff

 

        
Pie Billed Grebe - coconut crme?  

 

        
Great Regret - sequel to Great Expectations

 

        
Sharpie - rendered down for ink?

 

        
Roughleg - too busy to shave

 

        
Spotted Sandpiper - yes, but which one did you see?

 

        
Forester's Tern - favorite of rangers

 

        
Morning Dove - enemy of sleeping in

 

        
Mockingjay - proof that movies influence American culture heavily

 

        
English Sparrow - top hat, tails, elegant cousin of our hated weaver finch

 

        
Blackpole, Redpole - best seen in migration near maypoles

 

        
Junko - found near landfills and second hand thrift stores

 

        
Scarlet Tanger - easily discovered in outlet malls

 

        
Redwing - experts feel rare U.S. vagrant, but actually very common in wetlands

 

        
And last, but not least, Seagulls - gulls are simply too complex to identify 
well. So, we divide them into three categories: 

Seagulls, Lakegulls, and Parkinglotgulls. Understand there is also a movement 
to lump them into Whitegulls and Notwhitegulls.

Comments: After a brief docent table discussion of some Spring phenology signs, 
about 18 nature lovers took a pleasant hike on the every 2nd Sunday of the 
month Bird and Nature Walk at Turville Point. An almost hidden Wood Duck 
immediately caught our attention in the ephemeral pond right by the parking 
lot. Some Wood Violets were peeping out and lots more Spring flowers are just a 
couple weeks away. Highlights were our FOY Yellow-rumped Warbler and scoping 
Pied-billed Grebes, Shovelers, a raft of Coots and a nice bunch of Common Loons 
near shore on Turville Bay.

Hello,
Yesterday morning there were at least 10 Canvasback ducks at Hwy 29 pond east 
of Green Bay. There were also a few Redheads for comparison as well as a 
Gadwall.

Subject: Band-tailed Pigeon- Gone

Hey everyone,
Just a quick note that the Band-tailed Pigeon in Grant County has not been seen 
for 3 days so unless I post otherwise, assume that it is gone. It stayed an 
impressive 15 days and the homeowner was thrilled to be able to host the bird 
and meet a lot of people on this list. It ominously was last seen just before 
the severe storms Thursday night-- lets hope it moved on and did not succumb to 
the large hail that hit the area.

Subject: McMahon Road Shorebirds/Ducks - Oconomowoc
From: Tim Hahn <thahnbirder AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 12 Apr 2015 22:09:38 -0500
The flooding on McMahon Road north of Oconomowoc (Waukesha Cty) was great
for early shorebirds again today. LESSER and GREATER YELLOWLEGS, lots of
WILSON'S SNIPE, and 60+ PECTORAL SANDPIPERS.  BONAPARTE'S GULLS and BREWERS
BLACKBIRDS were present, as well as just about every type of duck that's to
be expected. It's pretty evident that we're close to or at the peak of teal
migration; BLUE-WINGED and GREEN-WINGED TEAL numbers have climbed with
every pond holding at least one of these birds.

From: Robert Mead <carolbob7 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 12 Apr 2015 20:39:00 -0500
All those interested in the Wisconsin Breeding Birding Atlas:
On April 16th, Thursday, 7 PM, at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green
Bay there will be a training session on the 2nd Wisconsin Breeding Bird
Atlas. County Coordinators from many of the counties in Northeastern
Wisconsin will be there to help to sign up for block coverage and to answer
questions. Door, Brown, Kewaunee, Outagamie, Winnebago, Oconto, Marinette
and possibly Calumet counties will be represented.
There will be a short presentation and summary of WBBA 1, followed by a
presentation by Erin Giese, Brown County Coordinator, on the WBBA 2.  If
you participated in the first atlas, there are significant differences this
time around.
There are many ways to participate in the Atlas work...come and find out
how you can help.

 Got great looks at an adult Franklin's Gull, at Lake Barney. Most of the gulls 
were out in the fields. Many Boni's in the area also.

Subject: Lake Maria - Green Lake Co.
From: Peter Fissel <peter.fissel AT wisc.edu>
Date: Sun, 12 Apr 2015 13:08:21 +0000
Just a quick note, since I have to get ready to head out for the Lake Farm 
field trip pretty soon. Jim Schwarz and I got a nice look at the Cinnamon Teal 
yesterday - thanks to Aaron Holschbach for refinding it, and to Jess Gorzo for 
the phone call! 


Jim and I headed up to Lake Emily in Dodge Co., where we saw at least four 
Common Loons, but no Red-necked Grebes. At nearby Lake Maria, just over the 
line into Green Lake Co., we ran into Tom and Sylvia, who walked back down to 
the boat launch with us. There were lots of geese, including Snow (both 
morphs,), GWF, and Cackling, Pied-billed and Horned Grebes, almost all the 
dabbling ducks save Pintail, and all the normal "inland" divers. Also had Great 
Egret and Great Blue Heron, lots of Bonaparte's Gulls, and a mess of Rusty 
Blackbirds around the parking lot. (Also had the latter two at Lake Emily.) 



We grabbed a bite to eat in Ripon, then cruised through the White River Marsh 
at sunset. Had Hermit Thrushes flushing across the road in several spots, but 
didn't hear much out in the marsh yet. After dark, we ran the Princeton Owl 
Survey route that starts at the west edge of the marsh and goes more or less 
due west towards Germania Marsh. It was great this year - 8 or 9 separate 
Barred Owls, including a close dueting pair at one stop, plus a couple Great 
Horned. At our last stop, I thought maybe I was hearing a Long-eared Owl when 
we got out of the car, but a very loud older car came along just then, which 
could be heard for a very long ways on a calm evening, unfortunately. 



Really nice day, with a ton of "year" birds, and one very good bird!
