Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison State Park - BB Cuckoo, Am Bittern, Osprey
Approximately 65 species were found on the morning of May 20 at Ft. Harrison State Park.  Highlights included a very cooperative Black-billed Cuckoo that posed for pictures, a pair of counter-singing Cerulean Warblers very close together, four Broad-winged Hawks drifting NE, an Osprey flying NE, a female Baltimore Oriole putting finishing touches on the nest, two singing Alder Flycatchers, a singing Hooded Warbler (first heard by Whitney!), and a smattering of migrant warblers including Canada, Bay-breasted, and Blackburnian. As I exited the park along 59th St. an American Bittern flew south over the road. This is my third flyover Am Bittern in about the last 5 years near the park.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Fort Wayne airport grasslands
Inspired by Lorenzo Kleines eBird report from May 13, Steve and Linda Gilstrap and myself stopped by the Fort Wayne airport yesterday on the way back from a birding trip to Magee Marsh and northern Ohio. We found many of the same birds that Lorenzo did as we birded the grassy fields west of the airport.

Highlights included a Grasshopper Sparrow singing along Ferguson Rd. and Dickcissels, Bobolinks, and Savannah Sparrows on Aero Center Dr. We also observed a Belted Kingfisher nest tunnel in a sand bank just north of Ferguson Rd. and had quite a few Eastern Meadowlarks and a singing Horned Lark.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Mounds State Park - 5/20/18
Mounds State Park 5-20-18 Possible nesters

Blue Grosbeak: This morning I decided to bird the airport fence which
borders the north side of the park. After 9/11, Anderson Airport was
required to
enclose the airport with 10 foot high fence with barbed wire. The fence is
directly
north of the campground office. Park in the campground overflow parking lot
north
of the campground office. Walk north to the fence. This is the first Blue
Grosbeak
I have found in Mounds State Park and my only second sighting for Madison
County.
The park mows a 10 foot wide path from the fence to the woodland edge of
the park.
Great habitat for sparrows and other species. I first heard the Blue
Grosbeak singing
from the park side of the fence. It then flew to the woodlot inside Airport
property.
As it sang, I was able to locate it at the top of a tree for a visual I.D.
On a breeding
Bird Survey quite a few years back, I think Brad Jackson had a Blue Grosbeak
near Memorial Park Cemetery in Anderson.

Louisiana Waterthrush: Behind the Mounds State Park Pavilion, I took the
treated
wood boardwalk down to the east end of the very rare fen (wetlands). I
walked
another 5 or 10 feet and a Louisiana Waterthrush emerged from the fen giving
warning calls. The bird was flying from tree to tree above my head with a
beak full
of worms. Walking into the wetlands is strictly prohibited.

Kentucky Warbler: For the last 10 days, a Kentucky Warbler has been singing
from a trail directly south of the Mounds State Park campground Office. The
trail starts at the campground office and winds south back to the main park
road.
I've had Kentucky Warblers stick around before, but not for this long.

Summer Tanagers: I have had Summer Tanagers all month long. They have not
moved on yet. I am getting them consistently near the Pavilion, Friends
Shelter,
and down by the boat launch.

Today (16-May-2018) John Cassady, John Kaehr, and I birded the lakefront.

It was a beautiful day to be afield and the birds were great. We logged 26 warbler species and bird of the day was a Nelson’s Sparrow at Forsythe Park. Surprisingly, we also logged 8 Ruby-crowned Kinglets and 6 Yellow-rumped Warblers; both of these species should have departed by 10 May.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Two cool warblers today!
   Shortly after we got home from work today, Lisa noticed a small yellow bird feeding on the jelly at our Oriole feeding station. We checked a little closer and saw that it was a Prothonotary Warbler! This was a new bird for our yard (#109). It showed up an hour or so later, again feeding on the grape jelly.   Shortly after we saw the Prothonotary, we heard a "thud" on the glass of the back porch. Under the window, I found a dazed Tennessee Warbler. I placed it in a box to let it get its bearings back. About five minutes later, it flew up out of the box and into the neighbor's back yard. Meanwhile, a second Tennessee was singing back in the woods behind the house.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Kosciusko Co. 26 Warbler species and flycatcher arrivals.
I decided to do the Ball Marsh trails after the rain stopped this morning and had the best county passerine migration in memory. I spent over 3 hours walking this multi-habitat preserve between Little and Big Tippecanoe Lakes, as it was evident that songbird migration was in full swing.
A few Alder Flycatchers, 2 Continuing Chats, 6 Prothonotaries, Philadelphia Vireo and a 23 Warbler species made for a good showing. Missed Mourning, Blue-winged and Hooded Warblers after trying several nesting locations in Tri-County FWA, but picked up Canada, Cerulean, Yellow-throated and another Chat. I heard an unknown high-pitched sound and wondered if it might be a Bobcat. I played a Bobcat scream and put came a huge Groundhog and I saw the head of a baby. Evidently, the sound was of the young Groundhogs. Always something new out there.

Correction - it was a SORA. A couple of folks blew up the photos and you can could see the yellow bill. Thanks Ryan and Gary for the correction.

It is a King or Virginia Rail. It is hard to tell size from the photos. There are a few other things to use (like the gray in the face is more pronounced on the Virginia), but can’t judge that from the photo or video.

Virginia Rail might be more likely. It is a migrant through the area. However, King Rails do nest in Goose Pond.

An incredible day which saw a total of 23 warbler species and a grand total
of 81. I think the unsettled weather has been working to our advantage.
Birds were in every tree and singing well into the afternoon when I left!
Probably could've added a few more to the list, but warbler neck and mental
fatigue are a real thing. Happy to see my home state represented with a
Connecticut Warbler. Here are the details:

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison SP, warblers and a pipit
I birded Ft. Harrison State Park, Indy, from 7am to 10:30am on May 13 and found 75 species. As often happens, the birds seemed more cooperative before and after the bird walk than during. Before reaching the gatehouse at 7am, a Worm-eating Warbler sang from the side of the road. It sang a second time as I backed up and got my phone recorder ready. It then did not sing again during the few minutes I waited. A Cerulean Warbler and Mourning Warbler sang once from along the road past the gatehouse. Four Eastern Kingbirds flew into Delaware Lake parking lot together from the southwest at approx 7:20am. I assume these were migrants as the species is one of the small number of diurnal migrant songbirds. The kingbirds were gone within 10 minutes. 
After the bird walk when almost everyone had left a Cerulean Warbler in the woods bordering the Delaware Lake parking lot finally decided to sing. Then, as a I was leaving the parking lot, the day's only Black-throated Green sang as did the first of the day Yellow-throated Warbler.  Silly birds.
Although many birds did their best to stay hidden during the walk, the group did great looks at Baltimore Orioles, Warbling Vireo, Orchard Oriole, a female gnatcatcher putting the final touches on a nest, a distant Summer Tanager, four Bay-breasted Warblers, and, thanks to eagle-eyed Austin B, a single American Pipit in a newly tilled area for prairie plants. I may have had flyover pipits before at Ft. Harrison but never one on the ground since the habitat is not right for the species. 
There will be a bird walk each Sunday in May at Fort Harrison State Park. Meet at 8am at Delaware Lake parking lot.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Allen County Baird's Sandpiper
I scouted for tomorrow's bird count. Following a tip from Marisa Windell, I went first to the corner of Homestead and Branning Roads, where she had seen a Baird's Sandpiper, among others. But the flooded field had dried up already. So I followed her other tip, to Ellison Road north of the railroad. The birds there were too distant from the road, even with a scope, so I walked closer, and found a Baird's there. I managed a fuzzy picture.


The rest of my scouting was mostly to check the route. I found several closed roads, which is useful information.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] IAS Big May Day Bird Count - Tomorrow, Saturday, May 12

Tomorrow, May 12, the Indiana Audubon Society will behosting its annual Big May Day Bird Count (BMDBC) throughout the state. TheBMDBC 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.

There are still a number of counties without acompiler/birders. Yes, it would be great if each county had multiple groupsbirding, but if we can just get one individual to count birds, even for a shortamount of time, it will be data that we did not have before.

Please look at the list of counties below, and email me at <mattkalwasinski...> (subjectline = Bird Count) if you are interested in birding one of these counties tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Matt Kalwasinski

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] weird Scarlet Tanager, Celery Bog Nature Area, May 10, 2018
We had four people for the early bird walk this morning. There was a scattering of migrants but not the big push hoped for, given the strong S winds of last night. We did get my first Black Tern of the spring, and John Skene had Sora, Blue-winged Teal and Green-winged Teal down by the Lindberg Bridge.

The coolest thing was an orange Scarlet Tanager. It was a singing male (close to another singing male of normal color) but instead of scarlet red, its head and body were orange, almost gold in places. John Skene got photos.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Fort Wayne - Purdue Campus
Last night I birded the Purdue campus in Fort Wayne. The river is
incredibly low, and there was a lot of mud exposed. There were not as many
shorebirds as I hoped, but it looks like a great spot for them inside the
city limits, and I did have Least and Solitary Sandpipers (in addition to
Killdeer). The Cliff Swallows have also returned, and the pedestrian bridge
over the river offers incredible views of them.

I spent about half an hour at Celery Bog this morning. Things were mostly quiet with respect to migrants (hopefully more will show up tomorrow after today's weather). I did get two Yellow-breasted Chats, which are quite unusual for this site - really not the right habitat. I also had my first Lincoln's Sparrow for the spring.

At home, I had five Pine Siskins - the third May in a row in which I have had siskins in northern Tippecanoe County.

Big spring for Rose-breasted Grosbeaks here in Tippecanoe County too.

Here's a shot of 16 at the feeder at one time:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/95092956@N00/41178590674/in/dateposted/

That would be the all time record for the number these birds at our feeder
at one time.

About everything else is pretty much average.

If anything about the feeder looks odd, it was a design it as I went

We are having an phenomenal oriole event here too.  Easily over a dozen at a time.  I've been putting out orange halves and have to replace them in a matter of hours, 6 oranges a day so far.  Eating from the hummingbird feeders and suet too. We always see them in spring and two years had a nest in the yard but nothing like this before.

  The Blue-headed Vireo seen at the swimming beach somehow, in the confusion of compiling a long list, got left off the Sunday morning count list for the Eagle Creek Bird Walk. That would have raised that count list 108 species. I'd like to give a thanks to  Becky who at the marina peninsula was a great help to me in finding many of the warbler species for my own list early in the morning. Most of the warblers has dispersed in that area by around 10 AM. Most parking areas at the main attractions of the park  were over full of cars by 12 noon, many cars parking on the grass.  The parks department has done a great job of improving the park facilities and infrastructure since the park's low point when it seemed to bottom out in the low point of the "Great Recession 12 years ago".

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Ft. Harrison 5/6 - 67 species
There was a lot of song at Ft. Harrison State Park, Indy, on the morning of May 6, helping to produce 67 species. Many birds that vocalized took advantage of the newly leafed out trees and stayed hidden. But, the group had good views of Scarlet Tanager, Ovenbird, Gray-cheeked Thrush, Prothonotary Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler and a number of other species. Least Flycatcher and Eastern Wood Pewee were both new arrivals at Ft. Harrison for me. The complete list is below.
There will be a bird walk each Sunday in May at Fort Harrison State Park. Meet at 8am at Delaware Lake parking lot.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Fw: eBird Report - Pine Creek Gamebird Habitat Area , May 6, 2018
You know it is going to be an interesting day at Pine Creek when your first three birds are Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Eastern Towhee and Red-bellied Woodpecker. I didn't see the phalaropes that others saw there yesterday, but still had a decent species list. eBird thinks that the Green-winged Teal and dowitchers are late. Nice mud flats in the southern basin, which will be in better condition with some rain.

Trumpeter Swan - 2

Sandhill Crane - 2

Marsh Wren - numerous birds singing

Sora - numerous birds calling along the south path; even flushing from grass.

Went strictly to check on one bird. Cliff Swallow FOY. Upon seeing the southside nest it appeared to have fesh work. On checking the northside nest it was obvious. The 5 inch opening is now about 2 inches. I was about to walk away when one flew in and did a little mud work. Got a few pics.

Members of the Sycamore Audubon Society did a Big Sit (actually we stood the whole time) next to the pond at Prophetstown State Park this morning. We ended up with 72 species for the two-hour effort (with additions by Mark Arvin and Chuck Tuttle). Highlights included 5 species of shorebirds, both orioles, migrating Blue Jays going by, and lots of Henslow's Sparrows singing from the prairies as we drove in. We also talked with a good number of park visitors about birds.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Clark County observations
After looking through John Skene's pics of the Celery Bog Nature Area, the sparrow that I was trying to describe was a Lincoln's. A shout out to him. I observed 22 species from from my back porch which overlooks a cove that feeds into the Ohio river. Highlights were: a term --possibly caspian, osprey which are nesting nearby, and 3 least bittern flying over screeching in a down pour. I don't think they were BC herons. There has been a Baltimore Oriole on the hummer feeders and claiming territory or calling for a mate all day long. Still have White crowned/throated sparrows, 2 indigo buntings(m), 3 Rose Breasted Grosbeaks(m), a chipping sparrow, have downy woodpeckers nesting in a green ash tree out back, and had a Ruby throated hummer(m) approach my golden honeysuckle that is budding. No warblers which seem to be the big ticket.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Marion County May Day Count - May 12
The Indiana Audubon Society Big May Day Bird Count will be happening on
Saturday, May 12 this year. We need participants for Marion County (and
every other county!). The protocols are practically the same as eBird -
simply keep track of how many birds you see on May 12, including the time
and effort spent. So if you're out birding that day, you may as well have
your data be a part of this multi-year effort.

I am the compiler this year for Marion County, so if you are birding there
on May 12, you can just send me your checklists and I will take care of the
rest. More information about the May Day Count (including information for
the other counties) can be found here:

https://indianaaudubon.org/activities-may-day/

and the official checklist can be found here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7OY9p6Q64PDUW1rOUtRU3ZWc28/view

Thank you for your help, and let me know if there are any questions,

There was good stuff this evening at Chinook mine after the wind died down. White-winged Scoter was the best rarity but Black-necked Stilt also good for this site, plus two rails and a gallinule. As a finale, I listened to a Whip-poor-will while woodcocks peented and Henslow's Sparrows chirped.

WHITE-WINGED SCOTER 1 adult female diving repeatedly at south end of "County line lake", north of Swalls Rd near Clay County line. It was near sundown (8 pm) when I first observed her, no direct light on her, very dark brown overall. With difficulty made out paler areas on face, which seemed more oval than vertical. When the bird swam on surface with folded wings, a slight spot of white could be seen on wing, and eventually I confirmed that this showed on both wings; finally the bird preened one wing and showed a bit more white. The bill was long and broad, and sloped evenly down from forehead, canvasback-like, rather than a blunter triangular shape as in Surf. Dives were about 50 seconds long, about 15 observed.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Yard birds in Clark county
I have been throwing a mixture of seed on the stoned portion of my fire pit. Along the pit itself(which is full of river birch limbs), and on surface area around. I started doing this in the winter to get a closer look at birds from my reading room. Anyway, this has really attracted the birds. Highlights to this area today were: two indigo buntings(m) FOY, white crowned/throated sparrows, and some sparrow type bird that resembles a song without the dot on the breast. It is smallish,(noticeably smaller than a white crowned), streaked with tints of a dull yellow. Savannah?, ovenbird? Would welcome some insight on this. Also, had a yellow warbler and Ruby throated hummingbird(f). Both FOY. A Rose breasted grosbeak(m) at the sunflower feeder

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Mostly yardbirds, SW Monroe Co
Catching up . . . mostly yardbirds. What a fun week! I don’t often get Baltimore Orioles; they (so far, only the males) have been feeding at the hummingbird and suet feeders. Thursday evening produced a FOS Blue Grosbeak and a Red-headed Woodpecker among all of the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. Even the thrasher stopped by momentarily at the feeders.

I enjoyed the Brown Thrasher’s rendition of “whippoorwill” on Monday (April 30) morning.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Fish Crow added to our yard list.
Been red-letter days the last 2 days here east of Northwestway Park in
Indianapolis. Yesterday we had our first Baltimore oriole for the season.
Today was our first rose-breasted grosbeak for the year. At the same time
the grosbeak appeared we had a hairy woodpecker. I can count on 3 fingers
the times we have had a hairy show up to visit the peanut feeder.

The best bird was a fish crow flyover at 12:28. It was heading west toward
Northwestway Park. That makes yard bird number 119. Not too bad for a
suburban yard, I suppose.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Carolina Wren behavior
I quietly walked Witmer Woods today (Goshen) to stop at the low, rusty red movement of a Carolina Wren with insect in its mouth. It had alighted on brush that lay in a tangle on the woods floor. I stopped to see what it was up to. In a moment it flitted not two feet away to plump orbs that had come alive. Three drab youngsters suddenly stirred from their perch on top of a branch in the pile to vie for the snack. Snack delivered, the adult flew to a nearby perch, sang, then flew off. The youngsters returned to their side-by-side huddle and faded by camouflage out of sight.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] 5/2 - Shorebirds in Southern Lake County

Yesterday evening (5/2), I checked out a few spots in southern Lake County. My first spot was at a retention pond that I recently noticed, which has some good shorebird habitat; picking up six species of shorebirds. The area is on US 41, just north of 231 on the west side of the road (41.4295,-87.4719) near a small pumping station.  Then, I decided to head a little further south to 121st Avenue West of Calumet Avenue, where I found six species of shorebirds including 1 American Golden Plover and 57 Pectoral Sandpipers. Finally, I checked the Osprey nest on US 41; just south of 231, and I found 2 Ospreys; one in the nest and one perched nearby. Complete lists are on eBird, and the links are posted below.

   Our FOY Ruby-throated Hummingbird finally showed up at 8:00 tonight. We had already given up watching for them for the day and had just settled down on the couch to watch some TV when the bird showed up at the feeder just outside our living room.   And earlier in the day, just before 5:30 PM, I looked out our bedroom window and saw a beautiful male Blackburnian Warbler on one of our Ash trees, just outside the window. This is only the second Blackburnian that we've ever had in our yard.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Request for assistance - recordings of migrating Mourning Warbler songs
It is year 4 of this project and I am writing once again to post an
opportunity to participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves
recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs.I am interested in whether
different song populations of Mourning Warblers (Western, Eastern, Nova
Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective
areas of the species’ breeding range.All you need is a smartphone with a
voice recording app and some luck.The web page link below describes the
project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more
detail.There is also a link to the map with previous year’s results
based on recordings from many volunteers.

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/

Here is a link to the recent national Audubon Society story on this
research.

Citizens Science Project.

Hi everyone,

A group of birders that included people from Indy, Bedford, Bloomfield, Shoals, and Bloomington ventured into western Brown County on what was close to an ideal morning.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Yard birds today
   A good day at our feeders today - I was filling the "regular" feeders this morning when I heard a Baltimore Oriole singing in the neighbor's yard. So, I dropped everything and started scrambling to get the Oriole feeders up. Of course, once I found the feeders, I couldn't find the pole and baffle! After a while, Lisa figured out that they were already in the yard, with other feeders on them ... DUH! Anyway, we got all set up, and put out our Hummingbird feeders too.   So far, we've had three male Orioles in sight at one time, and a female. We also heard a Rose-breasted Grosbeak this morning, but still haven't seen it yet. Warblers - 4 Yellow-rumps and 1 Palm. Gnatcatcher - 1.  Hummingbirds ....... Still waiting!

01 May 2018 - There was a convergence of early and appropriately timed birds
at the same time today. White-crowned Sparrows in numbers, a movement of
Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles and warblers. A Great Horned Owl was flushed by
a walker and perched for a minute in the "laugh" tree. Most were seen at the
feeder station. (There was loud noisy construction at the west end gate for
an intrusive bike trail, so nothing there.)

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Black-necked Stilt pair in Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co.
Aidan Rominger and I birded a few sites on Monday, April 30. After we left Lye Creek Burn, Montgomery Co., and headed back to Indianapolis, I drove by the ephemeral farm ponds on 550N to check for shorebirds. We were rewarded with a male and female Black-necked Stilt at the pond on the south side of the road.
CR 550N can be busy and there is not a good place to pull over. We stopped quickly and took a few photos before leaving. The location is immediately east of CR 100 E.
This pond does dry up and it's not big enough to support nesting. So, the stilts will not stay long. Maybe they will find their way to The Burn on CR 650N.

Sorry for the late post - BUSY Sunday!
   Nine members and friends of Stockbridge Audubon Society endured four hours of cold, damp weather on Saturday at Chain O' Lakes State Park, before throwing in the towel and heading home shortly after lunch. But, before we shut the party down, we did manage to find a total of 42 species of birds. I guess the most notable of these may be a Northern Parula, a Red-breasted Nuthatch, and a good look at a nice Pine Warbler, but we also heard a pair of Barred Owls calling off of Trail 7, and Stephanie Wagner got a great look at a Broad-winged Hawk before meeting up with the rest of our gang.   Lousy weather or not, it was still a great day to be out birding!            Trip leaders Eric Helfrich and John Winebrenner

There was an adult, “Audubon’s” Yellow-rumped Warbler at the Celery Bog Nature Center yesterday (4/28/2018). With the north wind, it is probably still there with the many Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warblers. I’ll post photos to eBird, as soon as possible.

was in the trees outside the ranch fence. There was a north wind so it was

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Eagle Marsh west end Willets
   Having hardly any shorebirds on my Indiana list this year, I decided to head to the west end of Eagle Marsh for a while this morning. Though I still wasn't able to add a lot of shorebirds to the list, I did find a group of eight Willets together at the south side of the first large pond. They were visible from the parking lot with a spotting scope, but I got much better looks when I walked down Trail 2 and to the east end of the pond.   Besides the Willets, the most interesting thing that I saw was a mink crossing the channel, struggling with a large fish. The fish was much larger than the mink, but I've heard that minks can be very aggressive hunters.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] IAS Bird May Day Bird Count - Looking for Birders (NO SIGHTINGS)

I am the state compiler for the Indiana Audubon Society’s Big May Day Bird Count (BMDBC), which will occur on Saturday, May 12, 2018. The BMDBC is conducted state-wide each year on the second Saturday in May, and the objective is to count the number of birds of each species that occurs in a participating county area from midnight to midnight. The data collected provides a valuable scientific record of the resident and migratory bird populations occurring each year in Indiana and a snapshot of birds seen in Indiana on a particular day.

I am looking for volunteers who are interested in birding (therefore, collecting data) in counties that are NOT currently represented. There are 92 counties in Indiana, and so far, 44 counties are signed up to submit data.

It would be great if each county had multiple groups birding, but I know that is not realistic. If we can get one individual to count birds, even for a short amount of time, it will be data that we did not have before.

Please look at the list of counties below, and email me at <mattkalwasinski...> (subject line = Bird Count) if you are interested in birding one of these counties on Saturday, May 12.

Sincerely,

Matt Kalwasinski

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Wabash County, Mississinewa Spillway American Bittern and other shorebirds
Yesterday April 21, was the one-year anniversary of John Kendall's Yellow Rail. I went to the Mississinewa Spillway starting at 5:23 AM but heard only Sora, no Yellow Rail and no Virginia Rail. I did hear Great Horned Owl and Barred Owl. Then toward sunrise, I walked part way through the spillway marsh, seeing an American Bittern, many Wilson's Snipe, Sora, and Greater Yellowlegs. Pectoral Sandpipers and American Golden Plovers flew over. I had 29 species all together, details on EBird in the hotspot Mississinewa Lake--Spillway. I also saw two Coyotes. The spillway had been mowed and that may have reduced the rail probabilities.

Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Willow Slough Fish and Wildlife Area Eared Grebe, 4/21 a.m.
I spent the morning birding Willow Slough Fish and Wildlife Area in
Newton County today, April 21. My best bird was a breeding plumaged
Eared Grebe on J. C. Murphey Lake. I saw the bird from the end of the
peninsula south of the headquarters building. It was fairly far out and
just about due east of the Purple Martin house. This is, I believe, my
first Eared Grebe for Willow Slough. There were lots of waterfowl on the
lake, along with American White Pelicans and Horned and Pied-billed
Grebes. Link to my eBird checklist for the day below.

At 8:10am this morning, I got out of my car in my drive on Elkhart's west side and had a treat ot 4 Hermit Thrushes in our yard and nearby, 2 Pine Warblers in the Black Oak overhanging our home (one singing continually), and a Brown Creeper going up and down the trunk and branches of the oak. The Brown Creeper was vocalizing regularly. It has been a while since I have seen either the Pine Warbler or Creepers, so that was quite a treat.

A beautiful day at Eagle Marsh. I walked the Continental Divide Trail. I switched to Trail 6, and immediately found myself wading. I started into the woods on Trail 7B, but soon gave up because of high water. Attempting to get to the lane, I found myself wading in water up to 15 inches deep -- I know it was 15 inches because my boot are 16 inches high. It was a good day in spite of tough going.

The "??" sparrow is a Savannah Sparrow. Note fine streaking on breast and

Nice bunch of photos, but are those photos of eagles with Sandhill Cranes
