Subject: Re: [CT Birds] Cedar Waxwing behavior
Though fruit is the by far the biggest part of Cedar Waxwing diet, eating flower petals is a major part of their diet in spring. From Birds of North America:

"In May an abrupt and fundamental change in diet composition occurs, with fruit dropping to about 15% of diet, while flowers comprise 44% of diet. Both changes appear related to seasonal changes in availability of diet items; fruit crops are depleted or withered, while the spring flush brings an abundance of flowers, suggesting that the brief, heavy reliance on flowers by Cedar Waxwings may be a crucial nutritional substitute for sugary fruits at this season of fruit scarcity. However, in addition to plant sugars (sucrose), flowers contain at least two other chemical components of potential nutritional significance to waxwings: protein in pollen and carotenoids in petals. So flowers may also present unique and important seasonal nutrients for waxwings."

Subject: [CT Birds] Cedar Waxwing behavior
A Red-eyed Vireo sang from our crabapple within a few feet of our screened
porch at 1pm. But there was other activity among the fading blossoms. Three
Cedar Waxwings were gorging on the flower petals! They spent about 20
minutes eating the best petals one at a time. Does anyone know the
nutritional value/appeal of flower petals to birds? Not sure I've seen this
before.

A little fat on the bird so may move further north. The bird was recaptured in the same net we caught it last week and we will be keeping an eye out for it the next few weeks. It was calling this morning, but we havent heard it singing.

insect-eaters this year, seems like it's a little tougher going for them
this season. But anyone who eats worms will do well! Had a wood thrush

5/21. With the passage of the cold front, clearing skies and brisk NW winds, I went to Lighthouse Point in New Haven in hopes of finding a wind-blown Kite (Mississippi or Swallow-tailed). Reportedly 31 MS Kites were recorded in Cape May, NJ, this morning.
I saw no Kites, but there were flocks of 5-72 Cedar Waxwings flying (mostly) west along the coast (262 tallied), as well as 12 Chimney Swifts, a Common Raven and a Turkey Vulture. It was reminiscent of autumn.
Butterflies seen included a Variegated Fritillary (quite early, but photographed), 3 Red Admirals, American Lady, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and an Azure, sp.

Subject: [CT Birds] Pheasant/bank swallows
Saw a nice male pheasant on Old Maids Lane in So Glastonbury today, then at the landfill happy to see a nice colony of bank swallows busily digging nest holes into the bank that the benevolent dump sheriff cut for them. Glad to say he’s aware and protective of the birds and wildlife there. Also seen at landfill and nearby area an indigo bunting, orioles and flickers.

and his expert knowledge and life long study on this species. Perfect time of year to learn more

Thank you, Zellene. Trails Day (which is actually a weekend) is a great event. FYI, the Hartford Audubon Society is sponsoring a hike at our Greenstone Hollow property on that Saturday, June 1st, and I suspect other birding organizations are offering their own hikes, too. Please join a group and get out that weekend! CFPA does a nice job organizing the weekend.

We saw them while kayaking from Madison Surf Club to Hammonasset yesterday,
and today kayaking to Tuxis Island around 4:00pm.

In the AM today also saw a scarlet tanager and clapper rails (yes, multiple
clapper rails thanks to great spotters we were following!) on/off Willard

Subject: [CT Birds] Clapper Rail & Possible Kling Rail - Silver Sands
From Jim Bair:
Milford, Silver Sands SP Boardwalk -Saw 2 Clapper Rails together near
boardwalk. One looked typical gray Clapper, the other was much lighter
with buff on upper breast and belly. The view might just emphasize
individual differences within the species, but the only other time I saw
a large rail this light in CT, it was a King Rail. I am not sure this
was striped enough to be a King Rail, but it did make me think of
perhaps a hybrid "Kling" Rail.

Subject: [CT Birds] yellow rail Yes, mostly after 3:40am
I heard the yellow rail on May 9th, with some wind blowing.
Went back early this morning, May 18th, hoping to again hear the yellow
rail and record it this time.
There was a bright moon, and almost no wind.
The rail called in the same place, north of the hill, very intermittently
between 240am and 340am, at which time it started calling incessantly, with
that unique quality.
I left at 4am after getting some basic audio recordings.

By the way, when departing I turned on my bright flashlight, pointed it
upwards, and realized the air-column was filled with thousands of tiny
dots, less than 1/2 mm each, drifting by in the slight breeze, and realized
they were tiny flies, many near the light beam trying to approach the
source of it. The "plankton" of the air-column!

midnight. We had a tiring but fantastic day where many of the birds made us
work for them, unlike the incredibly good migration luck we encountered on
our previous Fairfield Big Day exactly five years ago (May 17, 2014). We
ended the day with 127 species, ironically exactly the same as the record
we set back in 2014.

The morning was tough with cool conditions and not a whole lot of migrants
around, and we particularly suffered with warblers compared to last time,
but a few incredible finds coupled with a great bunch of species along the
coast in the afternoon allowed us to catch up to our record just a half
hour before midnight. Highlights from the day included:

American Wigeon - a female at Ash Creek
Long-tailed Duck - flock of 10 at Penfield Reef
Common Nighthawk - Pine Creek at sunset
Yellow-billed Cuckoo - calling at 11:30 pm at Brett Woods, last bird of the
day
Black-billed Cuckoo - night flight call heard by Alex while searching for
owls in the morning
American Woodcock - peenting and displaying at Hoyden's Hill
Solitary Sandpiper - Dirty Swamp pond at Larsen Sanctuary
Common Loon - several lingering birds at Jennings Beach and Penfield Reef
Yellow-throated Vireo - Brett Woods
Purple Martin - Southport Beach
Gray-cheeked Thrush - night flight call heard at Salt Meadows
BICKNELL'S THRUSH - probably the highlight of the day. We flushed it from
the side of the uppermost trail near the spring/stream just before the
power line cut at Lake Mohegan and immediately noticed the blank face and
lack of buffy spectacles as Gray-cheeked / Bicknell's. Incredibly, the bird
proceeded to sing, providing the diagnostic upward inflection at the end
for Bicknell's. The bird also called several times, and recordings were
obtained.
Brown Thrasher - Jennings Beach
White-crowned Sparrow - Hoyden's Hill
Seaside Sparrow - Marsh behind the Senior Center at Pine Creek
Saltmarsh Sparrow - Marsh behind the Senior Center at Pine Creek
Savannah Sparrow - Hoyden's Hill
18 sp of warbler

A great day to be out, and it was great for Alex and I to upkeep this
tradition!

David,

Follow Coulter Street to its end at the Founders Memorial Park/Leaf Dump.
You will ascend a small hill to its top. There is a small amount of parking
up there; you can either park up there or park on the street below and walk
up. Stand by the benches that overlook the north side of the hill and
listen from there. Best has been 11p-4a, by the sounds of it, but it may
call earlier in the night.

Good luck.

Best,
Nick

Hi John,
I’m not a herp expert by any means, but I don’t think any regional species of frogs make a “kur-wee” call like that of a Sora rail. I have on numerous occasions, however, heard Soras give that call repeatedly, without also giving the whinny call - especially during migration.
I suspect what you heard was, in fact, a Sora.

From: Jan Hollerbach via CTBirds <ctbirds...>
Subject: [CT Birds] A Big Thank You
I just wanted to thank all of you who gave such good suggestions for the
recent trip to High Island and related sites down in Texas. The highlight
of the trip was a pair of Whooping Cranes that had been hanging out in a
field a few miles from Winnie surrounded by many Glossy Ibis. It was quite
a site. Other fun finds were a pair of nesting Caracaras, and, of course,
the incredible breeding colonies of Snowy Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills,
Tri-Colored Herons......and alligators cruising by below the nests in hopes
that one of the young would take a tumble (or be pushed) out of the nest.

So thank you all so much! It was a wonderful trip!!!

From: John Weeks via CTBirds <ctbirds...>
Subject: [CT Birds] Sora vs frog
This morning I heard what I thought was a Sora calling “kur-wee” loudly over and over. It was in the middle of a marsh, 150 yards or so from where I stood. Since I never got a look at it and it never whinnied, I am hesitant about the ID.

Is there any frog that makes a similar call?

"My" Wood Thrush - which has been coming to my backyard for the past many
years - just arrived this morning.....or, at least, vocalized for the first
time this morning. I realize it may not be the same bird, but there is a
Wood Thrush that shows up every year at the same time and same place. I
always await his arrival with baited breath - it's a long perilous journey!

Subject: [CT Birds] 20 Warbler Day with the CAS Center at Pomfret
We had an incredible 20 Warbler Day with the Connecticut Audubon Society-
Center at Pomfret, as a group we saw 22 species of warbler within Windham
county! The birds were giving amazing views, with close-ups of Cerulean,
Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Magnolia, Cape May and Canada Warblers.
Additional highlights include two Nashville Warblers, both Waterthrush
species, and impressive numbers of birds overall. We totaled 300+
individual birds of over 60 species (including 100+ individual warblers),
with very high numbers of Northern Parula, Black-and-white, and American
Redstart. This was an extremely productive day, and a very
memorable experience for all of us. Let's hope we have even more impressive
results on the 90 Bird Day this Sunday!

Subject: [CT Birds] CACC
5/15-Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center, 9:55am-12:55PM. Very
high tide, receding, sunny, breezy, 65F.
The female osprey is on the nest in incubation position all morning. Male
was on perch, then sitting on camera, then on the ground (when tide
receded) and chased off 2 other ospreys.
On Marsh: 38 Mute Swans, 57 Brant, 2 Greater yellowlegs, 1 Lesser
yellowlegs(obvious difference in size when seen next to each other), 2 D.C.
Cormorants.
On grounds & feeders: 3 Purple martins (the colony was very quiet in the
morning with only 2 birds flying around), 2 Chestnut sided warblers, 1
White crowned sparrow, 1 White throated sparrow, 2 Song sparrows, 8 House
sparrows, 12 Common Grackles, 4 Mourning doves, 4 Red winged blackbirds, 2
Cardinals, 4 House finches (the 2 males with orange coloration), 1
Orchard Oriole (male), 2 Catbirds, 1 Mockingbird, 1 Carolina Wren singing
loudly, 4 Tree swallows, 3 Blue Jays, 3 Cowbirds, 1 Red bellied woodpecker.
Then I took a walk along the LIS side - walking out, there were 3 nesting
Piping plovers, 3 Oystercatchers- 1 was sitting on nest,.
One Piping Plover was just caught and being eaten and then carried
off....the bird that caught it, I believe was an American Kestrel-very
small (maybe grackle size) but without the facial markings that I usually
see...this one was rufous/drab brown on top with some speckled markings on
lower belly and upper legs. When I looked it up in my Sibley's guide, there
is one illustration of a kestrel seen from upper view that they call
"all-rufous". that is what this bird looked like. too far for pictures.
Then in marshy area by platform, 2 Black bellied plovers.

We know that there are a wide variety of species around Los Angeles, but little is known about the animals that live with the 3.9 million people in the city of LA.Help us learn more about these urban animals at www.zooniverse.org/projects/lawildlife/wildlife-of-los-angelesWild GabonLarge mammals play crucial roles in maintaining the unique nature of Lopé National Park's forest-savannah mosaic. However, they are understudied and are faced with threats which are prevalent around the forest edge of this transitional landscape.We want to estimate large mammal population around the forest edge and understand their interaction with the landscape. Results from this study will be used to inform effective conservation interventions.Help us study African mammals at www.zooniverse.org/projects/pangorilla/wild-gabonWildwatch Burrowing OwlThe western burrowing owl needs your help. Unusual among owl species, this pint-sized raptor lives in elaborate underground burrows. These owls cannot dig their own burrows, and instead “reuse” excavated dens dug by ground squirrels and other fossorial (burrowing) animals. With its penchant for open, native grasslands, the burrowing owl has been on a collision course with humans throughout much of Southern California. Your efforts will give researchers a clearer understanding of burrowing owl ecology and behavior, as well as visitors (and predators) to the burrows. The information gathered will help land managers balance land use (development) and wildlife conservation.Help us save the burrowing owl at www.zooniverse.org/projects/sandiegozooglobal/wildwatch-burrowing-owlThanks so much for all your help on these projects and all the others at www.zooniverse.org!Grant & the Zooniverse teamFacebook | Twitter | BlogUnsubscribe Notice: You are receiving this email because you have taken part in a Zooniverse project.

This morning Ted Gilman found an Olive Sided Flycatcher between the front field and George P Bent Apple Orchard at Audubon Greenwich. I briefly relocated it on a small bare tree in the deer fence area separating the field from the orchard but I haven't seen it since. There are many bare snags we see Olive Sideds on each year though so it easily could still be here.

great info to this list--I so appreciate it!

Subject: [CT Birds] birds on film: trying to find more DVD copies of Opposable Chums
Hi, All!
At the recommendation of some fellow birders, I got a copy of Opposable
Chums - the film about the World Series of Birding - on DVD. Had to get
it through eBay, and after enjoying it immensely, I donated it to my
library. Now my patrons are catching on to it, and would like to get DVD
copies for themselves.
However, it seems to be very difficult to track down (in large numbers,
at reasonable prices). Unfortunately, Jason Kessler's webpage
(BoulderOaks Films) is now defunct.
Any suggestions as to where people could purchase copies? I know it's
available via streaming on Amazon, but this is a DVD crowd. (If you
haven't seen the film yourself and do streaming, definitely check it
out!)
Figured it wouldn't hurt to shake down the brains of those in the
birding community.
Thanks so much!

:-)

This morning and into the afternoon at Northwest Park big push of migrants that included 2 Swainsons Thrushes, Red Breasted Nuthatch, 2 rather late White Throated Sparrows, 2 Lincolns Sparrows and tons of warblers. Could not i d many because of the overcast conditions and the fact that they were moving so fast in waves. 21 species noted including 2 Cape May, Bay Breasted and a late Palm. Also 12 Eastern Kingbirds together. Hope nothing rare got away!

Looking for better looks at  the King Rail, I met many people from as far away as New York this morning, and I want to share more info on the location for those who may not be familiar with the area.

For those using GPS, paste the following info your device: 41.2527,-72.5438

The bird can be seen from the blind building at the small marsh which is between the Hammonasset Nature Center field/Lot and the Willard's Island paved lot.  This is in the East side of the park.  The marsh is only about 100' x 225' in size, and the bird has been keeping to the East side each time I've seen it.  The last looks at around 9:15 AM had the bird less than 20 feet away from the blind.

It is very muddy in the entry to the blind area, so boots are recommended!

Good luck.

First of all hats off to Russ Smiley for finding such a beautiful bird! Since this King Rail is now public knowledge I just want to send out a friendly reminder and plea that since this is a state listed endangered species please do not use any audio playback in attempting to see this bird. For any state or federal listed endangered species audio playback and other forms of harassment are not only unethical but illegal. If you happen to see anyone do this please politely tell them to stop and explain that this is a state-listed species.

I hope many get to enjoy this bird's presence since it seems to be obliging. Lets make sure this bird continues to feel welcome and comfortable. Great job once again Russ!

Subject: [CT Birds] Putting in a good word for Hammo park officials
I've been meaning to post this for a while. And now is a good time now that there is rail action (thanks to Russ Smiley). A while back I called park officials twice to suggest they place five flat stepping stones along the muddy path leading to the bird blind located at the bottom of the Nature Center grassy parking lot. It was getting to be a big, and a bit dangerous, muddy mess. Park officials decided instead to build a beautiful wooden handicap-accessible walkway over the mud for us birders, which is now under construction. Thank you, Hammonasset park officials! We birders greatly appreciate it. :)

Subject: [CT Birds] CT Bird Atlas Block Busting
Dear CT Birders

The CT Bird Atlas Project will focus on Block Busting activities in the second year of the Atlas breeding surveys. The idea behind Block Busting is a group of people will go to orphaned blocks or blocks that have received little to no coverage. The group spreads out in the block and birds for a few hours. The twenty-hour survey requirement could be easily met with these activities and could quickly complete the block.
There are many organizations and informal individual groups who could support the CT Bird Atlas by Block Busting. The birders may not be familiar with the terrain, state forests and parks and other open space that is available. If you and a group of friends are interested in Block Busting in an area new to you please contact me at <ctbirdatlasvol...><mailto:<ctbirdatlasvol...>.

I will provide charts that list the open spaces in the orphaned blocks in an area of interest.

We should target to have the Block Busting events in the months of June and July, well after our fabulous warbler migration is over.

A representative of an organization or group planning a block busting event will need to do some research and work with the Regional Coordinator and the CT Bird Atlas Volunteer Coordinator to help assure that they will have a fun and productive event.

At Riverside Park in New London, one adult male Cape May Warbler singing at the hilltop, among more common and expected migrants. 
Although this park is relatively small, it seems like it might have good potential as migrant trap: a lot of native trees (although A LOT more nonnative plants in the understory- Knotweed City) surrounded by development and the Thames River, of which there is a nice view. I'll try birding there a few more mornings to get a better average!

My yard has been hopping with birds. I recorded a one day high species

we’re all the orioles and catbirds making for constant traffic at the
various feeding stations. I watched and counted 10 individual catbirds (all
birds in sight at one time) and at least six Baltimore Orioles. I think I
had a young male Orchard Oriole yesterday as a female I had confirmed on
Saturday. They have cleaned out the suet feeders, oranges and jelly cups.

I've counted at least twenty species of bird in my yard today, with the birds getting soggier and soggier as the day goes on! First year Male Baltimore Oriole has been here for a few days, 3-5 male RB Grosbeaks as well as several female, possibly a yellow bellied sapsucker female, and two different species of thrushes, though i'm not certain as to which...veery, maybe as it had very little spotting on breast and possibly wood thrush. what order do the thrushes return to our area?

Subject: [CT Birds] Orioles & Grosbeaks
Falling in line with recent reports, Ive observed an unprecedented spring
in the yard for Orioles and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks with regard to activity
and abundance.

Today there were at least 7 Baltimore Orioles racing around the orange &
jelly feeders as well as devouring the suet cakes throughout the day.
Females were also taking material from a nest from last season so Im
hopeful at least some will attempt to breed nearby. I was surprised to find
a male Orchard Oriole in the fray at the oranges as well, repeatedly being
chased off by its larger cousins.

Had 3 male Grosbeaks and 1 female together (yesterday there were 3 females
and 2 males). They too have been hitting the suet hard and one female has
been sampling the oranges.

Its been fun to watch over the past 10 days or so, - the yard has seemed
like a zoo aviary! I hope it may indicate those species will have a
flourishing year.

Subject: [CT Birds] New Haven Prothonotary Warbler, 2nd May fallout and warbler ageing questions
There is confusion among some birders here in the US on molt and ageing terminology, a problem compounded by the fact that Europeans also use a different terminology to that currently used in the US which can cause some thinking to be involved when discussing topics that span the Atlantic.

Both David and Kathy provided a short and succinct response to the questions regarding age and I just put up a few images of the recent Prothonotary Warbler and other species that delighted the crowds last week at East Rock.
I have added in some info on ageing and sexing to the captions which, in light of the recent posts, may be interesting to some.https://naturescapeimages.wordpress.com/2019/05/12/fall-in-spring-part-1/

It's been a great spring so far!

The problem arises because most of the guidebooks only show adult or
perhaps typical juvenal plumage. I once saw a coppery colored bird at High
Island, TX that a native told me was a young female Summer Tanager. There
was nothing like it in any guidebook. Only last year I finally saw the same
colored Tanager online (along with other immature Summer Tanagers with
varying colors). I've also seen and photographed a Laughing Gull in Florida
with bright orange bill, legs and feet. I can email a picture to anyone who
would like to see it. I thought I had something really rare. You won't
find that one in any book either but others have seen similar Laughing
Gulls in Florida.

I go by the age determinations set forth in Peter Pyle's book which we use
for bird banding. A spring bird of this plumage would be a second year
male. I welcome other banders to correct me if I'm wrong.

Subject: Re: [CT Birds] Eli Whitney mystery warbler and confusing age terminology
The problem arises because most of the guidebooks only show adult or
perhaps typical juvenal plumage. I once saw a coppery colored bird at High
Island, TX that a native told me was a young female Summer Tanager. There
was nothing like it in any guidebook. Only last year I finally saw the same
colored Tanager online (along with other immature Summer Tanagers with
varying colors). I've also seen and photographed a Laughing Gull in Florida
with bright orange bill, legs and feet. I can email a picture to anyone who
would like to see it. I thought I had something really rare. You won't
find that one in any book either but others have seen similar Laughing
Gulls in Florida.

Subject: Re: [CT Birds] Eli Whitney mystery warbler and confusing age terminology
There is a lot of confusion in ageing terminology, which is reflected in people identifying the mystery male American Redstart as "first year" or "second year," meaning the same thing.

As with a few other male song birds (e.g., Red-winged Blackbird), male American Redstarts take a bit over a year to reach full ("definitive") male plumage, with variation among individual males in the first year of life (some looking more "female-like" and others looking more "male-like").

The bird in question is roughly 11 months old. He is in his first breeding season (thus the label "first year") and in its second calendar year (thus the label "second year," or "SY"). If everything goes well for this bird he will molt into his definitive adult male plumage at the end of this breeding season, and by the fall migration (when it will be roughly 15 months old) he will probably be indistinguishable from older males. Although it takes a little over a year to grow full adult plumage, a male does not appear in breeding season in adult plumage until he is nearly two years old (in his third calendar year--thus the impression that it takes three years to appear adult).

The word "yearling" for such individuals might reduce confusion.

P.S. Feather generation terminology adds another level of potential confusion. The bird in question probably has two or three generations of feathers. The primaries, secondaries, tail feathers, and primary coverts are probably "juvenal" (or "juvenile"), most of the rest of the feathers are probably "first basic" (or "formative"), and some feathers might be "first alternate."

First one looks like a 1st year male American Redstart (like female, but with black flecks on head and/or breast). The second bird, I believe, is a 1st year female Black-throated Blue Warbler (lacking hankdercheif).

Jason, no thanks needed :) Glad you got the bird.

I can return a big Thank You to the birding community, which, as far as I
have heard thus far, has behaved very respectfully to the neighborhood and
to the bird. This is actually a nice setup for the bird's sake, as there is
zero chance of seeing it, so there has been no temptation to trample this
fertile marsh during breeding season.

Also, I do know that the bird has been taped at least once, in an effort to
get it to move closer for a hard-of-hearing person that was having trouble.
Probably as expected for a migrant, it did not work. I continue to
discourage taping of this bird, more to eliminate potential confusion among
birders than anything. Someone trying to listen from a different location,
or even from the other side of the hill, could easily confuse a tape with
the real thing. Best to not even try.

Very glad the bird has stuck around for others to experience!

Happy Mothers Day!

Bolton Notch very active this morning into early afternoon. 61 species total, including 16 warbler species. Most of the activity was on the west side of the pond and into adjacent Freja Park. Highlights were a single Tennessee Warbler and 2 Cape May Warblers. Other species of note were Swainson's Thrush (1), Blue-winged Warbler (1), Northern Waterthrush (2), Magnolia Warbler (3), Canada Warbler (5), Prairie Warbler (1), Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (4), Northern Parula (3), American Redstart (many), Common Yellowthroat (many), Yellow Warbler (many), Ovenbird (8), Black-and-White Warbler (many), Yellow-rumped Warbler (many), Pine Warbler (3), Black-throated Blue Warbler (2). Another observer reported Nashville and Blackpool Warbler.
It seems the recently arrived Belted Kingfisher has already found a potential mate. Lots of chasing going on.

Subject: [CT Birds] East Rock
East Rock was very good this am. I think we had 21 species of Warblers.
Cape May, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, Canada, Wilson's, and Bay-Breasted were
all present (several individuals of each species were reported in the
park). A hooded was also seen. The main hotspot was the Overlook above the
Eli Whitney Museum.

Two Summer Tanagers were seen this am at the Overlook. The male was a dull
bird and likely different than the bird seen here a few days ago. A female
was also present. I don't think that either have been seen for some time.

Total bird numbers were fantastic. BT Blue, Common Yellowthroat, and
Ovenbird were present in huge numbers. Likely close to 50 of each species

Subject: [CT Birds] Eisenhower Park decent, Sandy Point not
In keeping with similar reports from this morning, I did a run through Eisenhower Park in Milford a little while ago and found it was pretty good with songbirds. My personal highlights were a couple of Canada Warblers, 2 Blackpoll Warblers and at least two Magnolia Warblers.

Be aware that on the north side of the park, just beyond the powerline cut and in a wet area, there is a rather large tent city with many homeless people. Birders may wish to give that area a miss.

In contrast, Sandy Point in West Haven was astonishingly birdless. I have never seen it that barren.

Mike beat me to post, but if you're wondering whether to go birding today, I would say YES, and get to Willard's Island at Hammonasset if at all possible.

The Warblers and others kept moving away from the wind, whichever way it's blowing. Great day for some beautiful migrants!

Too funny! We have had good luck attracting the orioles with the orange
halves, but within the past two years they've attracted other visitors:
red-bellied and downy woodpeckers, and even the hummingbirds. Don't know
why it took so long for the other birds to catch on.
The other morning, the oranges were so overrun with woodpeckers that the
orioles (and the catbirds) poked around in the compost pile for the old
halves I had thrown in there.
Just when you think you have nature "figured out".

A male Yellow Belly has been gorging himself on oranges on my deck

in hope of attracting an Oriole. Fruitless endeavor! But now the Yellow
Belly has discovered them, and I can’t keep them in stock. Several
other birds have begun to investigate and enjoy, but still no Orioles.

4 eggs. The female seems to be off that nest much of the time, although
when I checked it (while she was feeding in the backyard) the eggs seemed
warm (although it was a very brief check). Both birds often check the
backyard box with the empty nest and another box that has no nest. Is
building multiple nests a common behavior in bluebirds and how much time
does the female typically spend off the nest?

Thanks,

Rob Ballinger,
Clinton

Late this morning I had a singing White-eyed Vireo on L Winnemaug Road in
Watertown. The location was west of the lake and a bit west of the junction
with Sperry Road, at the base of a long uphill straight away.

I also had one singing again on Magnolia Hill Road in Bethlehem, where I
found it about a week ago.

Subject: [CT Birds] Caspian Tern and White-faced Ibis
We spent a little time this afternoon along the SE CT coast and saw some
good birds. In Westbrook, from the town beach, we observed a Caspian Tern
flying west to east along the coast. Then, at Hammonasset in Madison, we
found the White-faced Ibis feeding in the marsh near the road between East
Beach and the Nature Center with about a dozen Glossy Ibis. The good news
about the ibis is that it is still around and may try to breed here in CT.
If it does, it may do so on Duck Island, the nearby heron and ibis nesting
colony. If it interbreeds with a Glossy Ibis, we may have to rename the
island "Hybrid Haven" as it is likely the location of the Tricolored
Heron/Little Blue Heron interbreeding phenomenon.

The White-eyed Vireo was carrying nesting material. Please do not play tapes to attract this rare nester. It generally doesn't work on them and it would be great if pairs established territories here.  They are usually very vocal on their own. There is an even more vocal bird at the fork as you reach the bottom of the hill where the road forks and before you reach the flats. Thank you.

Subject: [CT Birds] Yellow Rail thoughts
Nick Bonomo, as usual, has not only found a good bird but also spelled out
in great detail the circumstances and consequences of our collective
excitement.

I think it's worth pointing out that while this is among the rarest birds
for a CT birder, in terms of adding it to a list, it's not a one-off
vagrant like Common Greenshank or Roseate Spoonbill. This is a regular
migrant through our state that is just incredibly hard to find because of
its secretive nature, nocturnal habits and choice of habitat.

However, since Nick through diligent effort found one, that means they're
moving and there are probably others in the state right now. It would be a
credit to our collective birding ethos if this sparked some of us to go out
to other good habitat at time required and see if we can find any more.
Marshes inland, as well as coastal, are potential locations,

Good morning.

There is a YELLOW RAIL ticking away as I type this in Old Saybrook. 345am.

**Sorry for posting delay. Been speaking to OS Police Dept about birder access and possible disturbance. THIS IS A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD. Still calling 415.**

It is heard from the top of the leaf dump park that is at the end of Coulter St.

Drive to the end of Coulter St. If there is parking on the street that will not impede residents in any way, you should park on the road to minimize noise for those trying to listen. ALSO BE AS QUIET AS POSSIBLE SO AS TO NOT DISTURB NEIGHBORS. If Police get complaints, they will shut it down.

Walk up the incline driveway to the top of the hill and listen to the marsh to the north.

If there is no good parking options on the road (OBEY ALL SIGNAGE), then drive into the park, and the driveway will go up to the top.

Please:
1) Do not tape the bird, as it will cause confusion amongst birders at the very least. This is a migrant and not a potential breeding species here.
2) Be quiet ALL THE TIME, including closing of car doors.
3) Because this is a tight space, carpool if possible.

Don’t expect this bird to be calling during the day. After dark or predawn are likely to be best time as long as it is here.

More as it develops or as I think of it. Please ask if any questions.

Don’t mean to be high-handed here, but the cops do have my info, so please don’t get the birding community in any sort of trouble here. I do enjoy birding Old Saybrook and would like to keep up a good rapport with the police. Thanks :)

Good luck!

Took the day off from work, hoping for a big migration day at Bolton Notch SP. Wasn't the "Big Day", but was still okay (better than working...). Birds of note as follows:
4 Canada Warbler, 1 Magnolia Warbler, 1 Blackburnian Warbler, 1 Balck-throated Blue Warbler, 8 Northern Parula, many Black-and-White Warblers, 5 Yellow Warbler, 3 American Redstart, 1 singing Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 4 Common Yellowthroat, 2 Pine Warbler, 1 Prairie Warbler, 1 Louisiana Waterthrush, 2 Blue-headed Vireo, many Warbling Vireo, 1 Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, 1 Wood Thrush, 2 Scarlet Tanager, Baltimore Orioles everywhere. What I thought was noteworthy was finally finding a Belted Kingfisher, which has been strangely absent until now at this park. The pond seems like ideal habitat for them.

Subject: [CT Birds] Audubon's Oriole report
Hi,Just a note to ask that people reporting  rarities, especially ones rarely documented as vagrants outside their breeding range, or are short distance migrants in other parts of NA, to add a bit of information in their posts.While people have found some really cool birds and their posts have allowed many birders to see rarities, their are other, more probable species that may be mistaken for rarer birds and we should be diligent to communicate a bit more information.I do not know the people posting, or their experience, but in making that identification they must realize that this is a species undocumented (to my knowledge) in the east.I encourage anyone to report sightings of birds or to solicit help with rarities.Obviously, such a post will cause great interest and so i think there is a bit of responsibility to add information as to why it was an Audubon's as opposed to a more expected first-year Orchard Oriole, or even a Scott's Oriole.Thanks to all for posting your sightings but any extra info anyone can provide to the list members when extreme rarities are reported would be welcome by all.Many thanks,Julian HoughNew HavenSent from my LG Phoenix 3, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

Subject: Re: [CT Birds] where are the chipmunks
We always have a lot of chipmunks in our West Hartford yard, under the
deck, under the wooden walkway, scurrying under the bird feeders, lurking
in the woodpile etc. They vanish in the winter, then reappar in the
spring. Our usual horde started to reappear about two or three weeks ago.
It was a tough winter; much of their territory was under 2 to 3 feet of
snow and ice that had hardened like cement and only melted recently. I
wondered if they would survive. But they did!

We always have hawks in our tall trees and we've seen them catch and eat
squirrels, and a big snake once, but haven't seen any chipmunks get caught
or eaten.

Subject: [CT Birds] “Golden-winged Warbler” follow-up
5/7. Hi all. Yesterday I reported the sighting of an apparent Golden-winged Warbler at Racebrook Tract, on behalf of the finder, Linda Olsen.
Chris Elphick of UConn, and others, saw Linda’s photos and questioned the bird’s parentage based on physical features including two bold yellow wingbars in a faded yellow wing patch, instead of a solid bright yellow wingpatch ( and other less obvious features). Chris and Greg Hanisek requested feedback from others, including David Sibley and Ian Worley (VT eBird reviewer). While this bird is neither a classic Golden-winged, nor a classic Lawrence’s hybrid, all were in agreement that it best be called a “Blue-winged Warbler X Golden-winged Warbler (hybrid)”...at least as far as eBird is concerned.

Here is a great article from VT on the subject:

https://ebird.org/vt/news/golden-blue-winged-warbler-potpourri-how-to-submit-to-ebird

And here is Linda Olsen’s eBird Report, with photos:

The “Winged” Warblers are a genetic mush-mash. We birders are all still learning.

Subject: [CT Birds] Orioles!
During a walk around WH Reservoir 6 today, I saw close to a dozen Baltimore Orioles, mostly males singing. I have never seen that many at once. Also Kingbirds, chipping sparrows, a turkey, swallows, grackles and house finches.

My Hummers arrived 5/2. The male did his display flight for the female.
