Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Warblers, grosbeaks Celery Bog Nature Area, Sep 20, 2018
A group of 8 people met for the early bird walk at Celery Bog, West Lafayette, this morning and were rewarded with an active hour of birding. Both today and Tuesday (when I banded birds at the Purdue Wildlife Area) were surprisingly bird-y given the hot temperatures and lack of a weather front to move migrants. We had 10 warblers species this morning (and missed two species that we caught at PWA on Tuesday - Wilson's and Connecticut) and a cluster of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Goose Pond verses Eagle Creek North mud flats
 At 4:30 AM Last Saturday morning, Sept.15, on my way back to Indy, I parked by the center building to try and catch a short nap before sunrise.  at 5 am a car pulled in the lot and opened up the building with all lights on.  Three Harley Davidsons pulled into the lot then more and more cars-trucks followed. All went into the building for a meeting.  They turned out to be duck-goose hunters. They left at 5:30.  I left at day break and found hunters scattered over the area North of the highway.  By 9 am I had heard only one barrage of shotgun fire go off near the tern bar.  A solitary Northern Harrier flew by me fleeing the gun fire.  In the distance to the west, I could make out three Great Egrets. By 10 am, my species list was the worst imaginable. I hadn't planned to bird that morning and did not have scope or binoculars but the list wouldn't have been much higher. the drive across the highway "causeway showed empty pools of water. If you see kids doing drugs on he eastern deck of the Starling Sanctuary, the park is asking they be reported to the 911. There is a problem there.                           Total Count for 4 hours of driving around Goose Pond 5 species
                           Total number of hunters possibly 20. In four hours, I heard only two rounds of fire. I guess there was little to shoot at.

                                              Geese- only heard possibly 3 near the only gun fire. Never saw flying birds                                              Great Egret- Only 5                                              Hawks- only the one Northern Harrier                                              American Kestral-0                                              Eagles-0                                              Shorebirds-  None                                              Ducks-  Only 2 Wood Ducks                                              Swallows- 0                                              Cormorants=-0                                              Sparrows-0                                              American Gold Finch 5                                              American Rock Dove  5 back in Linton.

I stopped at Forsythe Park yesterday on my way home to see if I could find
the Snowy Egret... and I did! It was perched on some deadfall along the
east side of the largest island--most west in the lake towards the toll
road (east of where the "Illiana Marina Trail" cuts under the toll road).

Thanks for the previous reports!

After returning Monday late afternoon from a week in N Wisconsin where the most numerous bird species seemed Red-Breasted Nuthatches (other than Starling flocks on wires), I was surprised to hear 2 RBNHs calling in my old pine stand. Ha ha, I was momentarily confused as to whether in fact I had driven the 500+ miles home to Bloomington.

A lot of activity this morning in the big, dead oak tree down by the pond turned out to be 3 Red-headed Woodpeckers (2 adults and 1 immature) and a few other birds.

I heard a whip-poor-will last night. The Red-breasted Nuthatch showed up on my suet for a second day in a row last Friday, but I haven’t seen the bird since then. Hummingbirds are thinning out. It’s interesting how the hummingbird feeder that was always emptied first throughout the summer has changed over the past few weeks.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison SP - 13 warbler species and two Bald Eagles
The Sunday morning bird walk at Ft. Harrison State Park, Indianapolis, on Sept 16 turned up 51 species. Highlights included thirteen warbler species and two adult Bald Eagles, one of which was conveniently located for a group of 5K participants. Some birds were not cooperative and some species were seen only by a small number of birders. A chipping Black-throated Blue Warbler would not show itself but one person saw a blur of blue and white. The Golden-winged Warbler was also not in the mood for posing. But, it was a beautiful morning and we got to see some birds, such as a Yellow-throated Warbler and Northern Parula, very well.

numbers of other Sandpipers- Stilt, Semipalmated, Pectoral, and Least.

There were 20 species of warblers in the Hammond Bird Sanctuary on Saturday,
Sept. 8, 2018. Birds were observed away from the crashing high waves and
strong northeast winds. I did a second lap through the sanctuary with Julie
Bonnema. The previous day, Friday, I saw 12 species of warblers and today,
Sunday, it was sunny, but only 10, and American Redstarts dominated at 35.
Saturday warblers were fluttering and feeding on insects at the main
entrance by the parking lot and not the feeding station that was too windy.
Other observers were Kevin, Ken Brock, John Cassidy, Lynn Vernon, Michael
Topp and Julie Bonnema.

Perhaps some people were discourage by the rain falling in Fort Wayne, but the four who did show up for the Stockbridge Audubon field trip found the Lake Michigan lakefront dry, if cloudy and a bit cool. Birding was a little spotty, with the most activity at the Dunes State Park nature center feeders. We found a total of 40 species, some not seen in Northeast Indiana.

I have not seen these in that area before. Does anyone else see them there regularly, or was this one a "fluke?"

Have been able to hold a feeder and a hummingbird wand in my hand and have them feed. Very cool. I have had 11 monarch caterpillars emerge so far with 6 more on butterfly weed presently(I am sure that there are more to come). Also, I have 9 Black swallowtail caterpillars on my dill. I know it is nasty, hot ,and humid, but that seems to bring out certain species. If you are in Gordon's path be sure to keep your hummingbird feeders filled. And, mowing the lawn has been CRAZY!!

I finally saw Common Nighthawk movement at sunset tonight. There were 14 flying generally south over residential Goshen this evening. Then downtown I saw 8 more flying south. What was interesting was that downtown there are still 5 residential birds beeping and diving and not flying south. In fact one young bird is still following the parent around just like a week ago.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Bird ID
Saw a bird yesterday morning that looked like a smaller grackle. It was a black bird with a purple tint on the back. However, it had a dark eye. I pulled out "Peterson's " to look at blackbirds and figure out what bird this was. I did see that the red-winged blackbird has a dark eye, but this bird was not a red-winged -- no red wing. Didn't find a blackbird with a dark eye, but there was a shiny cowbird that looked exactly like what I saw. Even the the bill was pointed like the bird I saw. Could this be a bird blown north by storms? Any thoughts or suggestions?

I flushed a Yellow Rail from a roadside along Kosciusko Co. 400 E., just south of 900 S.  It showed as a dark, backlit bird with white secondaries, sputtering in the air a short distance from roadside into a bean field.  New county bird for me. The bird is likely not chaseable and is in a private, unharvested field.

There was a dead nighthawk on Warren County 1200 E this morning as I came to town. Pretty sure it was a low flyer that got hit rather than one on the ground. The road is paved and, although traffic is thin, there are still cars every 10 minutes or so. I found one along a road a few miles from this location about 8 years ago.

9-3-18 Interesting, I saw a dead Nighthawk on a gravel road in Sullivan Cty yesterday. I assumed it must have roosted on the road and was killed by a car ( I cannot prove it was not just flying low but I know they sometimes nest on the ground in gravel parking lots. ) I wonder how many are being killed this way ??

Yes, we saw same thing Saturday around 6:45 pm, We counted around 60 in New Salisbury on corner of St Rd 64 and Co. Rd. 135. We continued to see flocks scattered on St Rd 64 all the way up to Georgetown.
Last year around this same time at Hayswood Reserve in Corydon, I was lucky to see a flock flying low eating the bugs.

I am a federal wildbird rehabber in Georgetown Ind, by New Albany. I have been rehabbing for about 25 years. This time of year I get a few nighthawks in, that are still alive, all with the same injury. Their wing is broken in the same way and they have to be euthanized. Over the years we think they must hit power lines. I had a beautiful one come in last week, that was in the grill of a car. It was dead later that night.I have had very few nighthawks that were able to be rehabbed because they are just so injured. Very sad.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison SP, 49 species
Today, September 2, was the first of the fall bird walks at Ft. Harrison State Park, Indy.  Birding was a bit slow but the bantering could not be beat. The walk started very promising as we stood and watched warblers and other species coming and going from the Honey Locust trees at Delaware Lake parking lot. Five of our six warbler species for the walk came from birds easily seen in the locusts. The 6th species, Blue-winged Warbler, was at the edge of the parking lot. The warbler highlight was a well-seen Yellow-throated. 
After we let the parking lot, things slowed down. A lot of young cardinals, chipping sparrows, field sparrows, and goldfinch were heard or seen. There was a very quick glimpse of a Cooper's Hawk for a few but everyone had long looks at a perched Red-shouldered Hawk in the woods. 
A bird walk will be held each Sunday in September and October at Ft. Harrison State Park. Meet at 8am at Delaware Lake parking lot. Our complete list for Sept 2:
Canada Goose  20

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Lakefront (Sept 1, 2018): Hammond Warbler fallout after the warm front and Little Blue Heron at Grant Street Marsh
Leland Shaum, Thaddeus Shaum, and I birded the lakefront along with 9 Amish
young men. I have loaded the results into eBird. Results can be found under
Lake, Porter, Laporte, and St. Joseph County on eBird. Here are the
highlights:

Kenneth Brock already reported on our time at Michigan City Harbor.

We recorded 51 species along Beverly Road. Red-headed Woodpeckers were
abundant. We also recorded White-eyed Vireo and Warbling Vireo, Swainson's
Thrush, and 5 species of warblers similar to Ken's group.

We were at Miller Beach before the warm front and squall line passed
through, whereas Ken's group was there seeing most of their birds after the
warm front.
Blue-winged Teal - total of 70 in six flocks
Willet - 1 on the beach
Bonaparte's Gull - 1 came to the beach
Forster's Tern - 3 with a group of gulls the entire time
Common Tern - a group of 20 arrived before the storm and landed on the
beach beside us. There were 8 adults and 12 immatures.
Clearly, Ken's group had much more flights of shorebirds after the warm
front in the afternoon.

Hammond Sanctuary - we arrived there right after the rains ended about 11
AM and there was a substantial fallout. Ken's group was there before the
storm and saw 7 warblers of 6 species.
We had 37 bird species, including 47 warblers of 13 species :
Short-billed Dowitcher - 6 flew over
Warbling Vireo - 1
Red-eyed Vireo - 2
Red-breasted Nuthatch - 1
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher - 3
Swainson's Thrush - 1
Black-and-white Warbler - 3
Tennessee Warbler - 4
Nashville warbler - 5
American Redstart - 6
Cape May Warbler - 10
Northern Parula - 2
Magnolia Warbler - 6
Bay-breasted Warbler - 4
Blackburnian Warbler - 1
Blackpoll Warbler - 3
Black-throated Blue Warbler - 1 male
Black-throated Green Warbler - 1
Wilson's Warbler - 1
In general, there were two large warbler flocks and two smaller groups of
warblers and other birds.

Grant Street Marsh
In addition to usual birds there, we saw 1 Little Blue Heron. There were 6
Black-crowned Night-Herons visible. We had 18 species there.

The total day was 104 species including a few in St. Joseph County.

This was an interesting scientific experiment. We were at Miller Beach
before the warm front and squall line, and Ken Brock's group was there
after the front. The better shorebird and duck flight was after the front.
We were at Hammond Sanctuary after the warm front and squall line, and
Ken's group was there before the storm. The better warbler birding was
after the warm front. Both groups did better where they were after the warm
front. Too bad we cannot be everywhere at once. Clearly there is good
birding to be found.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Lakefront (1-Sep-18). Red Knot, Hudsonian Godwit, & Yellow-throated Warbler

Today (1-Sep-2018) John Cassady, Randy Pals, and Lynn Vernon birded the Indiana lakefront.

We concentrated on shorebirds and warblers. We logged 12 warbler species including the lakefront’s fourth autumn Yellow throated Warbler. Regarding shorebirds there was both bad and good news. The bad news is that we missed a host of common species, e.g. Killdeer, Spotted Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, and both Yellowlegs. The good news is that despite missing the above species we still logged eight shorebird specoes. And the list included some very decent birds: Black-bellied Plover, Red Knot, Hudsonian Godwit, Willet, and Short-billed Dowitcher.

Highlights

‚ÄĒMICHIGAN CITY HARBOR (with Leland Shaum‚Äôs group and Matt Beatty)
Black-bellied Plover,1 molting adult
Sanderling, 7- 3 adult & 3 juvs
Willet, 1 juv on the beach
Red Knot, 2 juvs on the beach

‚ÄĒEAST BEVERLY SHORES (mainly at the Central Ave lot)
Least Flycatcher,1
Black-and-white Warbler,1
Tennessee Warbler,4
Nashville Warbler,4
Magnolia Warbler,1
Black-throated Blue Warbler,1 fem
Yellow-throated Warbler,1- lakefront’s 4th fall record
Black-throated Green Warbler,3
Blackburnian Warbler,2
Bay-breasted Warbler,1
American Redstart,2
Common Yellowthroat,1

‚ÄĒHAMMOND SANCTUARY (very few birds)
Red-breasted Nuthatch,1
Black-and-white Warbler,1- female & 1st male
Cape May Warbler,1- first-cycle fem
Blackburnian Warbler,1
Black-throated Blue Warbler,1 male
Black-throated Green Warbler,1 first-cycle fem
American Redstart,1

‚ÄĒMILLER BEACH
Blue-winged Teal,140- several migrating flocks
Black-bellied Plover,4 molting adults
Semipalmated Plover,1 juv
Sanderling,3- adult & 2 juvs
Semipalmated Sandpiper,2 juvs
Hudsonian Godwit,45 or 46- at 2:25PM we spotted a large flock, about 300 yards east of the lakefront lot, flying south from the lake. John quickly identified them as Hudsonians. Distant photos were taken and the birds were counted in the photos. A small cluster of birds at the head of the flock rendered the count inexact. However, either total will constitute Indiana’s second largest count.
Willet,5 juvs

Blue-winged Teal,27
Green-winged Teal,3
Sanderling,41- 24 adults and 17 juvs
Ruddy Turnstone,8 adults
Semipalmated Sandpiper,2 juvs

Bonaparte’s Gull,6- 2 adults and 4 juvs
Caspian Tern,2
Black Tern,18
Common Tern,187- conservative total
Forster’s Tern,2 adults
Parasitic Jaeger,2 juvs arrived from the direction of Chicago at 3:15PM

Saturday evening we saw about 20 nighthawks fly over during an outdoor concert east of Martinsville. Last night we had a very loose flock of upwards of 100 birds in the area. They seemed to be feeding at about 100 to 200 feet and heading in no particular direction until heading slowly to the east. We have also been seeing larger numbers of bats the past week. Doug Johnstone, Morgan County

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Swallow-tailed Kite
I was driving south on State Road 39 near Rossville when I noticed a large bird with a forked tail flying low over a soybean field. I had my sun glasses on and the sun was not in a favorable viewing position, but I thought it was grey and black as I passed it. I was able to turn around shortly thereafter, and I went back to try to see the bird again. I lucked out. I got an excellent view of the bird flying about six feet above the field and twenty yards away from me. There is no question it was a swallow-tailed kite. The size, the long forked tail, and the beautiful white, gray and black markings were diagnostic. The road is narrow and heavily traveled, so I couldn’t park there. When I turned around for another view, I could not find the bird again.

Rossville is about 15 miles east of Lafayette. How and why a swallow-tailed kite got to central Indiana is a mystery to me.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] 2019 Midwest iNaturalist Birding Big Year
Hey all.

I started a project on iNaturalist for a Midwest Birding Big Year in 2019
<https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/2019-midwest-birding-big-year>, and
need an admin for the
Indiana
project (some of the responsibilities include: keeping everyone up-to-date
on the totals/species still needed, reaching out and getting more people
involved, and potentially coordinating bird walks). This project is set up
to be a sort of competition between the midwestern states, whichever state
has the highest total species in the end wins.
INaturalist is NOT similar to eBird in the way that you have a checklist
and you mark the species that you see down, instead to count you MUST get
an identifiable photo and submit every bird you take a pic of as an
individual observation (also, no need to try to get a picture of every bird
you see, that would be nearly impossible).

If you are interested in becoming an admin for the project please let me
know by privately replying back to me with your iNat username.

For those of you who have never heard of iNaturalist before, you should
check it out at iNaturalist.org <https://www.inaturalist.org/home>

If you have any questions please let me know!

Subject: Re: [IN-BIRD-L] Great Horned Owls in Bloomington
I live in the area. For three weeks, there has been a pair of GHOW calling at dusk and dawn in a duet, with the female hooting at a slightly higher pitch. I have two previous yard records from 2009 and 2014. I have seen what I believe to be the female in flight at dawn -- uniformly gray-brown, stiff slow wing beats, wings more slender and less rounded than a barred owl, but about the same size. There is a mature urban forest in the space (a ravine) bordered by High Street on the west, Maxwell Lane on the North, and Woodstock Place on the south. Non-birder reports about past years may be unreliable, because we also regularly hear barred owls.

I have not found a roosting location, but based on the pattern of calls, and the direction the female was flying at dawn, I would guess on the south side of maxwell lane about halfway down between High Street and the dead end.

Sorry I did not post this sooner.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Great Horned Owls in Bloomington

Last night around 9pm, I heard 2, and possible a third, Great Owls hooting back and forth for over an hour. They would fly a short distance to another perch but continued with their calling. The location was near the intersection of High & Maxwell Streets. I have never heard GHOWs calling in the city proper but neighbors (non-birders) indicated that they have heard this species of owl call in prior years.

Is this an occurrence, like Red-tailed Hawks, of this species moving into wooded sections of cities? Possible relationship to the decreased sightings of GHOW on the Lake Monroe CBC?

Regardless, it was a neat occurrence...

Stockbridge Audubon's first field trip of the season was at Eagle Marsh this morning. Most people, perhaps reluctant to be struck by lightning, stayed away, but four people did show up for the 7:30 start. We, too, weren't eager to be electrocuted, so during a lull in the storm, we viewed the marsh from the BSA Scout parking lot. With the weather map showing the band of storms reaching back to Lafayette and Elkhart, we called it a day at 8:45.

Cynthia and I hiked the west end this morning, mostly to scout the condition of the trails for Stockbridge Audubon's field trip tomorrow. Except for a few puddles, they were above water, but wet -- anyone planning to attend tomorrow is advised to bring boots. Rain gear would also be a good idea, since scattered showers are forecast.


Field trip planners were hoping for shorebirds on this first field trip of the season. Unfortunately, the habitat is under water, and shorebirds today were limited to two.

Yesterday, AUgust 22, an Osprey (adult pl) was still present on the water tower next to the Hayden Park Cellphone Tower nest location in Elkhart. Normal time of departure for southern climes is between the third week of August and Labor Day for the past several years. I have seen none on the tower across from Naquin dealership for several weeks.

They're starting to show up way down here in Warrick Co. as well. Had a Canada warbler on Sunday on Youngblood Rd., a chestnut-sided on Monday at Scales Lake, and 2 chestnut-sideds, a blackburnian, and a golden-winged, along with a redstart and a black-and-white (plus some of the common resident warblers) today on Towpath Rd. Had a couple nice flocks of small songbirds (chickmice, gnatcatchers, warblers, pewees, etc.). Not to mention 6 little blue herons (one adult and 5 immatures).
