Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] warblers & more in western Brown County
Emily Mott, Sandra Hernshaw and I had a unique morning of birding, catching the tail-end of migration for some of our winter birds while also finding some new arrivals. Most of the birds were along TC Steele Rd in western Brown County: we stopped at TC Steele SHS, Yellowwood SF, and Crooked Creek SRA. Not often do I see a Dark-eyed Junco on the same day as a Ruby-throated Hummingbird! Also had Red-breasted Nuthatches and lots of migrating Blue Jays.

Other highlights included Blue and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks (FOYs), Baltimore and Orchard Oriole (FOY), and 13 species of warblers. (The Blue Grosbeak was on Brummetts Creek Rd. in eastern Monroe County.) Happy birding, everyone!

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] IAS Big May Day Bird Count - May 11, 2019

I am the compiler for the Indiana Audubon Society’s MayCount, which will occur this Saturday, May 11. The Big May Day Bird Count(BMDBC) is conducted state-wide each year on the second Saturday in May, and theobjective is to count the number of birds of each species that occurs in aparticipating county area from midnight to midnight. The data collectedprovides a valuable scientific record of the resident and migratory birdpopulations occurring each year in Indiana.

I am looking for volunteers who are interested in birding(therefore, collecting data) in counties that are NOT currently represented. Lastyear, we were able to get data from 61 counties, but we only have 44 countiessigned up to participate this year. That means there are still 48 unaccountedcounties.

It would be great if each county had multiple groupsbirding, but I know that is not realistic. If we can get one individual tocount birds, even for only 20 minutes, it will be data that we did not havebefore.

Please look at the list of counties below, and email me at <mattkalwasinski...> (subjectline = Bird Count) if you are interested in birding in that county on Saturday,May 11.

Sincerely,

Matt Kalwasinski

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison SP 4/21 Balt Oriole
The April 21, Ft. Harrison State Park bird walk started on a chilly and slightly foggy note. After hearing a few warblers, two Wood Thrush, and a Baltimore Oriole in a few minutes of driving from the gatehouse to the parking lot, I was optimistic about the bird walk. Well, I should not have been. Neither the oriole or Wood Thrushes vocalized during the walk and the small number of migrants that did vocalize mostly stayed out of sight. There is always next week....
The complete list for April 21 is below. There will be a bird walk each Sunday in April and May at Ft. Harrison State Park. Meet in the NE corner of Delaware Lake parking lot.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Bald Eagle Boone Co
THIS EMAIL IS PROPERTY OF CORTEVA.

Birders,

Wanted to share something I had never seen before. Last Friday, about 8:30 AM, I was driving just north of I-65 and SR 267 by Boone’s Pond. A mature bald eagle swooped down over a flooded side ditch right in front me a grabbed a mature Mallard Drake right off of the water. The duck was still struggling as the eagle pumped hard to get enough lift to cross the road right in front of me. It flew east across the road into a corn stubble field to have its breakfast. I watched it land and subdue it prey about 100 yd from the road. Very neat!

Best Regards, Chris Voglewede

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Eagle Marsh - Allen County
   I just got home from a very cold and windy evening at Eagle Marsh. I've been on several Christmas counts that were warmer than it was tonight. But, though my species counts weren't really very high, the birding was actually pretty good. The highlight of the trip was on the west end of the marsh, when an adult Peregrine Falcon flew in from the southeast, circled the first pond, and then landed on the first tower (closest to the Boy Scout office). It stayed for just a couple minutes, to stretch and preen a little, then took off to the north. It seemed to be migrating. I also heard my FOY Virginia Rail, just south of the second tower.

Many of us were there at dusk and the birds were still there. Thanks to
Susan for finding them and thanks to Matt K for checking in!

They all (17) definitely looked like Hudsonian to me, and I think
everything present concurred. We saw them fly and they all looked to have
dark wings with white stripes on them.

What a great sighting!

   I was really hoping to bird Chain O' Lakes today, but my plans changed when I woke up to 35 degree rain and gusty winds. It didn't take me long to decide to just fill up the feeders and bird from the house for the day. Well, it turned out to be the best birding day we've ever had for our property, with a total of 27 species! One Red-breasted Nuthatch is still hanging around, along with a few Juncos, Purple Finches, and a Creeper. New for the year, were a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, a Hermit Thrush, a Pine Warbler, and four Yellow-rumped Warblers.   All those birds, and I didn't even have to get cold and wet!

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison SP, April 14
The horrible weather shortened the Ft. Harrison State Park, Indy, bird walk for myself and two others on the morning of April 14. The bird walk went for 30 minutes and then I birded by car for another 30 minutes. A total of 30 species were observed. Not many highlights due to the weather. The only warbler species was Yellow-rumped. A pair of Blue-winged Teal in flight along Fall Creek was unusual and a Great Egret at the park entrance was a nice end to a misty, cold, and windy hour of birding. The complete list is below. 
There will be a bird walk each Sunday in April and May. Meet at 8am in the NE corner of Delaware Lake parking lot.

   I made my first evening trip of the season to Eagle Marsh today, arriving at the Boy Scout parking lot a little after 7:00. I birded there for about an hour, and then headed over to the east end to walk the Barn Road, arriving just as the sun was dropping down to the horizon.. My main target birds were Rails. I did hear Soras at both locations, but I bombed out on Virginias.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] first bird report
This morning, I heard 1 Savanna singing at the N end of the Eagle Creek Airport on the SE side of Eagle Creek. I have stopped and checked for its call each day for the last two weeks.

The Western Red-tail light morph has been sitting on nest over stream W of EC golf course and viewable from SW parking lot of ST Malakai Church. The church has been setting up a baseball diamond near the nest area but this has not seemed to bother the two hawks. Does anyone have info on possible nesting of this morph in Indiana?

Thanks for any help,

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Interesting observation

Yesterday while hiking trail 3 at Spring Mill State Park, Becky and I watched a blue jay repeatedly flying down from about 4’ to the ground. We also saw something moving on the ground and thought it was another bird. When the jay finally gave up and flew off we could still see movement on the ground. It took a minute to realize it was a bat. We walked about fifteen feet off the trail and there was a Red Bat on its back with wings outstretched. I was able to take a couple pictures of it, with my phone, before it uprighted itself and flew off. I will never cease to be amazed at the wonder of creation.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Annual West-Central Ind. Eagle Nest Survey
Rusty McIntyre, Patsy Steffen, and I conducted our annual Eagle Nest Survey in West-Central Indiana today.
Our initial route included 35 nests located in Montgomery, Parke, Fountain, Vermillion, Vigo, and Putnam County. Of these four were inaccessible due to flooded access roads along the Wabash River and one was abandoned a few weeks prior and was omitted from today's route.  One nest showed no activity and another was destroyed due to apparent deterioration and collapse of the nest tree.  
And one previously unknown nest was discovered.
29 nests showed evidence that nestlings were present ---         3 nests were attended closely by adults and most probably had young in the nest.          On 11 nests adults were sitting or standing in postures suggesting young were present         20 nestlings in 15 nests were physically noted.
Overall, a total of 66 Bald Eagles were observed:  20 nestlings, 37 adults attending nests, six adults not associated with a nest, and 3 second-yr birds

One continuing female White-winged Scoter was joined by the continuing female Surf Scoter and two new Surf Scoters, including a first spring male, at Geist Dam on April 5. (Nick Kiehl was first to locate the three Surf Scoters on Friday.) The long-staying Long-tailed Duck has not been seen since earlier in the week. 
Other highlights included a few Northern Rough-winged Swallow, 120+ Bonaparte's Gull, 450+ Double-crested Cormorant, a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks with nesting material, and three Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. My checklist includes photos of the scoters and one sapsucker. 
Fall Creek Trail at Geist Dam is located at 10053 Fall Creek Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46256. Note 82nd St is closed at Fall Creek Rd. Follow the trail at the left side of the gravel parking lot to the boat ramp and dam (about .2 miles). A scope is needed to see many of the birds.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] KINGSBURY FWA APRIL 3, 2019
After parting ways with Ken Brock’s gang yesterday, I decided to stop by Kingsbury FWA on my way home.

Lots of Waterfowl too far out to ID even with a scope. Therefore, this list is not all inclusive.

Eastern Screech Owl - red morph

Sandhill Crane,500 I’m sure this is a conservative number. They kept flying over and flying over.
TRSW, 60 May have been over 100, but I erred on side of caution.
PBGR,1
BWTE,46 Another conservative number
GWTE,6 Probably many more, but not visible.
RNDU, 200 Another conservative number.
OSPREY,1 On the nest platform
EAPH,2
NOSH,60 Another conservative count
BUFF,8
LESC,2
AMCO,220
MALL,40
WODU,2
RUBL,125 Conservative number – they were everywhere.
GBHE,2
TUVU,3
WISN,7 Could have been other shorebirds, but didn’t see them.
NOHA,1 MALE
MuSw,1

I didn’t count Canada Geese, RW Blackbirds, Common Grackles and common passerines. Focused on the marsh area.

Good Birding,

There was a pretty big movement of raptors (and others) yesterday. We recorded 7 species of raptors, including Northern Harrier, which is less than annual from our deck. We also had a single Eastern Meadowlark, which is also less than annual from our deck.

I had a chance to get a fairly accurate count of the Am. White Pelicans and tallied 192, our largest estimate to date.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] strange goose
I was out on the lake doing Secchi and had some good/interesting
observations

2 Bald Eagles neither on the nest

3 Common Loon

4 Blue winged Teal  I rarely see them here

No Rough winged Swallow FOY

The usual suspects included Mallard and Wood Duck, Canada Goose, Turkey
Vulture, Tree Swallow, Red Winged Blackbird

The strange goose was the other.  Now I thought I had seen most Geese
but this one was disfigured if it was a species I had seen before.  It
could have been a domestic Graylag type as the body was a similar
color.  However the majority of the head was bright red, from the crown
of the head down to the neck and out to the bill.  It looked similar to
the skin seen on a Muscovy.  This bird was easily as big as the Canada
Goose that was in the vicinity and much larger than the Mallard that was
also present.  Except for a stray Mute Swan we don't get domestic birds
on the lake as the closest farm ponds with fowl are miles away.  Is this
just a diseased escapee or do  I have something interesting?  No picture
unfortunately but If anyone would like to see a photo we can try to
relocate it.

The large group of pelicans (127 counted) was present yesterday at the east end of Lk. Lemon (and still there today). Feel free to use our deck if you’d like to see them. There was also a large raft of primarily Aythya ducks at the e. end of Lk. Lemon as well as at the Paynetown SRA on Lk. Monroe. We saw ~600 Lesser Scaup between the two sites.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Geist Reservoir, March 25
On Monday evening the long staying scoter flock was still present near the dam at Geist Reservoir, Marion Co. The group consisted of two White-winged Scoters, the female Long-tailed Duck, and the female Surf Scoter that was first seen on March 24. 
I did not relocate the Red-necked Grebe seen over the weekend. 

Present on the docks at Geist Marina, Hamilton Co. was an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull. 
Access to the Geist dam area is from Fall Creek Trail at Geist Dam off of Fall Creek Rd. There is a trail that goes around the fenced area leading to the dam. Viewing is from the boat launch ramp and the dam itself.
