> Subject: Fwd: FYI: Animated Migration Map of 118 Bird Species in North America [Link] Dear ARBIRDers, Courtesy of my brother who sent this to me I'm sharing a Cornell Lab animated map of 118 avian species. Watch the migration both north and south a few times to get the full effect and appreciation. Anyone know which of the species it shows migrating to what appears to be Nova Scotia or nearby islands for the winter?

> It was a blustery but birdy morning at Prairie Ridge Preserve, outside Arkadelphia. I led a walk for a contingent from Tex-Ark Audubon Society ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/texarkaudubonsociety/ ). We saw our FOS Dickcissels singing on newly established territories. A Summer Tanager a Lark Sparrow gave us long, close looks as the sang. As always at this site, Red-headed Woodpeckers were easy to observe. Two Red-tailed Hawks circled and screamed the whole time. Wildflowers are starting to come on strong in patches. The full list is at http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36536498 .

> Former Beaty Prairie around Maysville was today much under a north wind in range of 20-30 MPH. This meant shorebirds heading north had to hunker down. In this case, with style, since the huge rainstorm of April 28 has left its mark in fields, especially along Tucker Road. A couple of storm water ponds were full of wind birds today, in circumstances very much like May 11, 2013, when Joan Reynolds and I were doing International Migratory Shorebird Day in the same area, and saw a Ruff, and lots of others, too.

> No Ruff today, but other interesting birds. These included: Blue-winged Teal (~150); Black-bellied Plover in immaculate breeding plumage (1); Yellowlegs -- ~300, roughly 80% Lesser, 20% Greater; Solitary Sandpiper (1); Willet (1); Spotted Sandpiper (1 ); Pectoral Sandpiper; Dowitcher ~90 – in flight they sounded like Short-billed and plumage in my photos makes me think this is the prairie form, Hendersoni; Wilson’s Phalarope (~50). I didn’t see any peeps in this wod of birds, but could have been there.

> On 3 May Casey Kell sent me a photo of a male Least Bittern that he had seen in the wetlands on the west end of Wilbur West Road in Pine Bluff, just west of the lake. Today Delos McCauley located and photographed a female Least Bittern foraging within 10 feet of the road and after being joined by Doc George, both observed a male, which Doc was able to capture. As a late arrival, I was able to photograph the female, only because Doc pointed it out to me. This was a new bird for three of us and the first time Delos had observed a Least in Arkansas.
