I observed the Snowy Owl on the same morning at that location, but I also

I've been putting out oranges for the Baltimore orioles and I've been

The study is at
https://www.cell.com/current-biology/pdf/S0960-9822(18)30534-7.pdf.

The gist of it is that the ancestors of all modern birds are a small number
of ground-dwelling clades. The Cretaceous extinction essentially wiped out
forests globally, leaving all then-extant arboreal clades up the creek
without a paddle. Arboreal lifestyles in modern birds re-emerged as the
forests gradually re-established themselves.

Subject: [birders] RUFF, RED KNOT and SNOWY OWL @ Pt. Mouillee SGA, Monroe Co.
This evening, Thursday, May 24, 2018, at 5:30 pm I found a juvenile /
female-type RUFF in the shorebird cell just SE of the PumpHouse at Pt.
Mouillee SGA. The bird was foraging among 16 WHIMBREL and another 16
BLACK-BELLIED PLOVERS. The Ruff was showing buff neck and spotting along
flank, and a mix of basic and fresh feathers on back. It was later refound
(7:30pm) while viewing a RED KNOT that appeared after the Whimbrel left.

Also seen were:

600+ Dunlin
1 White-rumped Sandpiper
Semipalmated Plovers
1 RED KNOT

Out in Cell 5 I refound the SNOWY OWL that was photographed yesterday along
the North Causeway. The bird was panting from the heat, had a brownish hue
overall, but otherwise still looked relatively healthy. I can honestly say
that I was sad to see it, though. I wish it well...

I will post photos / videos soon on blog and eBird.

Subject: [birders] Join the Stinchfield Woods breeding birds survey, Saturday, June 2, 7 to 11:45 am
The Annual Stinchfield Woods breeding birds is a Washtenaw Audubon
Society-sponsored field trip that takes place on Saturday, June 2, from 7
am to about 11:45 am. Stinchfield Woods is 777 acres of conifer plantations
and stands of native hardwoods, mostly oaks and hickories. The count
typically yields species such as Pine and Black-throated Green Warblers,
Blue-headed Vireos, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Golden-crowned Kinglets,
Hooded Warblers, Ovenbirds, and Acadian Flycatchers.

Stinchfield Woods is a mostly hearing event, that is, you won't see but
you'll hear the birds. We assign birders to groups led by veteran birders
who will help you identify bird songs and calls. This is a great venue for
getting started on learning bird songs.

Stinchfield's vegetation is dense and its trails are confusing. If you know
your way through Stinchfield, please come help us with the count. Maps will
be available.

The count starts at 7 am. We assemble in front of the classroom at the
Observatory, divide into groups that hike Stinchfield Woods trails, and
reassemble around 10:45 am to compile a list of all birds seen/heard by all
groups. We will also post the list to the Birders listserv and update the
Stinchfield web page that has 15 years of count data (
http://ylime.people.si.umich.edu/stinchfield.html).

To drive to Stinchfield Woods from Ann Arbor, drive north on US-23 and exit
onto North Territorial Road (exit 49). Turn left (west) onto North
Territorial and drive about 8.5 miles to Dexter-Pinckney Road. Turn right
(north) onto Dexter-Pinckney Road and drive about 1.5 miles to Stinchfield
Woods Road. Turn left (west) onto Stinchfield Woods Road and drive about 1
mile to the north entrance (this entrance is on your left driving westbound
on Stinchfield Woods Road). The gate will be open. Turn left (south) into
Stinchfield Woods and drive up the hill and bear to your right toward the
top of the hill. Park your car at the Observatory near the classroom.

I hope you will join the count at 7 am on Saturday, June 2. Please message
me (<ylime...>) or Mary Wise (<auntyem...>) so we can divide
volunteers into teams, assign tasks (leader, recorder, listener, etc.) and
get an estimate of the number of people attending for snacks, maps, lists,
etc. You can also decide to come at the last moment and just show up at 7
am on Saturday, June 2. Dress for the weather, hilly trails, and bring
insect repellent. If you have questions, do not hesitate to message me at
<ylime...>

Please consider joining this unique birding event!

Subject: [birders] do you have photos for "Green Room" shows?
Dear Birders,

My name is Georgia Gintowt and I am currently an intern working with Barbara Lucas on her CTN television and WEMU radio shows called “The Green Room”, where we discuss topics relating to environmental awareness. One of the TV shows we just finished taping was about landscaping for birds and features Cathy Theisen as our guest. An upcoming show we are working on is about local birds, and Juliet Berger will be our guest speaker. We are wondering if anyone has any good resolution photos they care to share of the following birds, so we can show them on screen to illustrate what the guest is discussing in the interview:

Turkey vulture
Bald eagle
Hummingbird
Oriole
Hawk or flycatcher on a perch
Pileated woodpecker
Fox sparrow
House sparrow
Eastern Bluebird
Bobolink
Eastern Meadowlark
American Woodcock
American Robin
European Starling
Pileated Woodpecker
Great Blue Heron
Great Horned Owl

We can get all of these photos online, but we like to showcase the work of many great photographers in our local birding community! Any photos that we use will be credited with your name in the credits. Please send me photos you’d like to share by June 15. My email is: <georgiag455...> <mailto:<georgiag455...> . Thank you very much, and hope to hear from you all soon!

Best,

Georgia Gintowt

Subject: [birders] White Pelicans south of Grosse Ile today
Birders,

Since early April, I have been part of a team conducting floral and faunal
surveys on Sugar Island, southeast of Grosse Ile, which is a recent
acquisition for the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. The island
is closed to public access. Our team has the required research permit. A
boat has been contracted to take us out there, leaving from a marina in
Gibraltar. It is a 3.5 mile ride, passing between Celeron Island and the
southern tip of Grosse Ile. The birds have been fairly interesting on this
short trip, with loons and Horned Grebes fairly common last month, as well
as a variety of waterfowl species. Today (May 22), I was surprised by an
unusual sight. From a distance, it looked like a couple of Bald Eagles were
circling over a small raft of Mute Swans. As we got closer, the eagles
turned out to be Great Blue Herons (!), and the swans were American White
Pelicans (6). They flew off to the south, toward Lake Erie Metropark, where
I saw 7 pelicans more than a week ago when viewing the Pacific Loon. Good
bird for Wayne County.

Subject: [birders] Washtenaw Audubon's Tuesday Evening Birders Meets Tomorrow at Miller Park and Ride
Birders and friends,
Please read to the bottom of this post if planning to come to Tuesday
Evening Birders tomorrow.

Please accept my apology for those of you who came to Miller Park and Ride
last week, only to NOT find us there. Last Tuesday, we met at the Plymouth
Rd. Park and Ride, but I believe it was somewhat ambiguous in our posting,
and some of you ended up, both in the wrong spot, and without any way to
reach any WAS board members to ask where we were. So sorry for the
inconvenience!! Thanks to Taylor Myatt for leading us last week, and for
all the good birds, especially the Black-billed Cuckoo, and the Least
Bittern! Sorry for the additional confusion about that Least Bittern at
LeFurge Preserve. Audio confirmation by several expert birders, changed
our ID back to at least one Least Bittern the next day-- Please adjust your
eBird lists and field notes accordingly. Below are our eBird checklists for
the evening, with great photos by Mike Sefton.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45721037
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45721041
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45721044


In any case, this Tuesday, tomorrow, May 22, TEB meets at the Miller Rd. at
M-14 Park and Ride,
at 6:00 p.m. for a 6:15 p.m. sharp departure. We will be traveling
together, in carpools, to Embury Road, where crack birder, Ben Hack, and I
will be guiding you through the wonderful birds on that road. You may meet
us there around 6:40 if going straight to Embury. Be prepared for a bit of
a hike, as we'll likely leave our cars near the beginning of the road, and
bird most of the road on foot. The road is several miles long, so we may
walk up to 3 miles between the out and back stretch. Wear appropriate
footwear, wear bug repellent, dress for the weather, as it will get cooler
in the evening, and brings snacks and water if you think you'll need them.
We'll stay there until dark, or until the Eastern Whip-poor-will sings,
whichever comes first!!

Good birding, and see you tomorrow night, at 6:00 pm SHARP!!!
Juliet Berger

Hello, I bird-listen more than I bird-watch, as I live under tall trees in western Washtenaw county and have trouble seeing small birds (the eagle that's visited my yard was easy to see, however....)

Over the weekend I was serenaded by a beautiful singer, whose most typical call, in a round, fluty voice, was four short (eighth?) notes. I played the tune on my piano and it was b-g-e-d. I couldn't find anything similar in the Merlin app, though my approach was hardly exhaustive.

Any two-legged singers out there who can identify this? I even tried to do a voice recording but of course when I got near, the bird refused to perform.

Subject: [birders] Washtenaw Audubon Society Belle Isle Field Trip Report
Birders,
Belle Isle was hopping with birds today, and Allen Chartier, our field trip
leader, helped us hear and see them all!
Below is our bird list, over 80 spp., including a Connecticut Warbler,
which was a lifer for most of us in the group. After the trip broke up but
before several of us left the island we discovered a Red-throated Loon,
just south of the Yacht Club. Follow the link to our eBird checklist
online to see pictures of the Red-throated Loon and audio of the
Connecticut Warbler. More pics will be added in time, so check back for
more fun. We had 19 spp. of warblers, many of which will be added in
photos soon.
Thanks so much to Allen Chartier, whose amazing ears and quick spotting,
got us on so many, many birds.

Good birding,

Juliet Berger

Subject: [birders] WAS Belle Isle Birding Trip with Allen Chartier
Birders and Friends,

Please join Washtenaw Audubon at this wonderful park in the Detroit River,
this Sunday, May 20, at 7:00 a.m. Belle Isle expert, and masterful birder
and bird bander, Allen Chartier will lead us. We meet at the Nature Center.

Belle Isle is the jewel of the Detroit parks system, and it is now a
Michigan State Park. In spring migration the woods there can be full of
migrating birds. Up to 20 warbler species in a day can be seen, making this
nearby locale nearly as good as the more famous hotspots of Magee Marsh and
Point Pelee, but without the crowds or hassle of border crossings.
Migration should still be going strong in the third week of May, and we'll
cover as much of the island as we can looking for flocks of warblers,
thrushes, sparrows, and around the perimeter of the island any lingering
water birds. Around this time in 2017, a birder found the island's first
ever Kirtland's Warbler. Maybe we'll get lucky!

Join us and trip leader Allen Chartier. Meet at the Nature Center at 7:00
a.m.


Juliet Berger, Washtenaw Audubon Society

Subject: [birders] Re: House Sparrows attacking House Wren box
Thank you to all who offered advise.
As I live in the middle of a city neighborhood, shooting the sparrows is
not really an option. Anyway I don't think I am capable of killing a bird,
even an invasive one - though I have thought of swinging a badminton racket
at them.
As the box is hanging from a slender branch in a river birch tree, the halo
solution is not practical.

I've noticed very few visits from the sparrows the past 2 days -- perhaps
conditioning from my clapping at them. Or they finally established their
nests elsewhere. We'll see if this trend continues.

I did a purchase a metal ring from Wild Birds Unlimited, as recommended by
Carol Dubritsky, to shrink the hole from 1-1/4" to 1-1/8" as well as to
prevent any potential chipping away at the hole.

If I do decide it is needed I want to ensure that I do not disturb the nest
or discourage the wrens. I will use this event to inspect the nest.
I plan to do the installation is three steps separated by some time:

1. hold up the ring to mark the screw holes
2. make pilot holes, preferably with an awl, using a drill only if wood
is too hard
3. attach the ring

Let me know if you believe this to be too risky at this time.

Subject: [birders] Oakland Audubon Field Trip to Algonac State Park - Sunday May 20, 2018
Folks, Just a quick heads up about this outing. To walk the trails at Algonac State park, it is advisable to have rubber boots, as the water level on the trails is sometimes several inches deep (at least as reported by officials there). Regular hiking shoes will suffice when we go to Harsen's Island. However, since Algonac has some very interesting habitats (Oak Savanna and Lake Plain prairie), it should be worthwhile. Also have plenty of bug spray available. Also, when we travel to Harsen's Island, we intend to carpool and split the $10 ferry charge per vehicle. So plan on that if you want to do that part of the trip. The leader will explain when we are on site. Thanks. Hope to see some of you tomorrow. Don Burlett

Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:30am-1:00pm. Algonac State Park and Harsen’s Island
Leader: Don Burlett (<baikalteal13...>)
Meet in the parking lot of Algonac State Park, just north of Algonac along
Route 29. We'll bird the park early in the day, checking out several
different habitats. Then in the late morning, we'll head back down to the
Harsen's Island Ferry and carpool over to the island to bird the variety of
lakeside habitats there, hoping to see Black Terns and other birds. We'll
visit the St. Clair Flats Wildlife area along the way. Bring a lunch or
snack as finding someplace to eat takes time and effort. A state park pass
is required. Please contact the leader to help work out carpooling
opportunities to avoid a long string of vehicles.

Please see our website for details about upcoming events. You do not have
to be a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

John,


Big Creek Road is a phenomenal birding destination and has a great mix of northern and southern nesting warblers. In my experience, Golden-winged Warbler in particular is typically actually easier to find on Manor Road (the east-west road at the north end of Big Creek Rd).


Enjoy,

Hi, we are two west coast birders who have spent the past few days at Magee Marsh and are thinking about spending the weekend in Michigan looking for a Golden-winged warbler since neither of us have ever seen one and might not have another chance for a few years.

Ebird reports seems indicate Big Creek Rd Auble SF might be our best bet without driving 500 miles but if anyone has any advice or tips we would be very grateful. Please contact me via email or on this list.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Juliet!

I heard from some of the staff that the WAS had expressed concern about our
hummingbird in the conservatory. This week Mason, Paul, and I decided to
try removing some of the panels from the roof in hopes of encouraging her
to take off. And it was a great success! I just wanted to let you know in
case you received questions from anyone about whether or not progress had
been made.

I attached the video we got of her taking off! It's not the greatest
quality, but I think the excitement shows through the grainy video.

I hope you have a good weekend!

Happy birding,

Roger Wykes heard and saw the Prothonotary this morning at 7:30 a.m.

Birders and Friends,

At the downslope trail east of the entrance to the first Boardwalk. High in the trees (with Tennessee and Bay-breasted Warbler) singing the Golden-winged Warbler song. (Bee Buzz Buzz, Bee Buzz Buzz Buzz)The bird had a golden crown, which I observed when it bent forward while feeding, and a black eye line, just as the Blue-winged warbler has, but with a whitish face, like a Golden-winged, and without any trace of black mask or bib. A Blue-winged would have a yellow face, with that eye line connecting the lores and the back of the eye. This bird had a white/light colored underside and a grayish back. I did not observe the wings, so I don't know if it had yellow or white wingbars, but either color is acceptable in the Brewster's. A cool bird to see and hear...we all wished we had better looks, but it is what it is. Later in the breeding season, we'll see birds like this in Michigan, in the Northern Lower Peninsula, or in the UP, on breeding territory in scrubby, second growth land, in a habitat shared by both the Blue-winged and Golden-winged Warbler. Who knows which species his mate will be, or maybe another hybrid? It is a mystery. We expect as the years go by, because the Blue-winged Warbler outcompetes the Golden-winged for territory, and mates, the Blue-winged and Golden-winged, so close genetically that they share 99.97 % of the same genes, will cease to be two separate species, and the specific beauty of the Golden-winged Warbler may be lost from the earth.
See this interesting article from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which also includes some images of both species and the hybrids.

Subject: [birders] Orioles and Milkweed
A quick note to suggest that everyone who can plant swamp milkweed should do so. Not only have we had our first monarch butterflies feed on it when it blooms, the orioles are crazy about the stems. I leave the dead stems up until the new growth appears every year, and the orioles in the area are peeling the dead, long strands of bark for their nesting material. It's been fascinating watching them go to the base of the stalks, work their bills up and down until the bark starts to peel away, and then pull up strands as long as they can.

Birders and Friends,

At the downslope trail east of the entrance to the first Boardwalk. High
in the trees (with Tennessee and Bay-breasted Warbler) singing the
Golden-winged Warbler song. (Bee Buzz Buzz, Bee Buzz Buzz Buzz)The bird had
a golden crown, which I observed when it bent forward while feeding, and a
black eye line, just as the Blue-winged warbler has, but with a whitish
face, like a Golden-winged, and without any trace of black mask or bib. A
Blue-winged would have a yellow face, with that eye line connecting the
lores and the back of the eye. This bird had a white/light colored
underside and a grayish back. I did not observe the wings, so I don't know
if it had yellow or white wingbars, but either color is acceptable in the
Brewster's. A cool bird to see and hear...we all wished we had better
looks, but it is what it is. Later in the breeding season, we'll see birds
like this in Michigan, in the Northern Lower Peninsula, or in the UP, on
breeding territory in scrubby, second growth land, in a habitat shared by
both the Blue-winged and Golden-winged Warbler. Who knows which species his
mate will be, or maybe another hybrid? It is a mystery. We expect as the
years go by, because the Blue-winged Warbler outcompetes the Golden-winged
for territory, and mates, the Blue-winged and Golden-winged, so close
genetically that they share 99.97 % of the same genes, will cease to be two

Subject: [birders] Mourning Warbler at Dolph Nature Area (Ann Arbor)
I heard and saw my first Mourning Warbler of the year Thursday Morning at Dolph Nature area in Ann Arbor. The bird was in the heavy thickets of vegetation along the smaller enclosed body of water where a Mute Swan is nesting. From the Wagner Road parking lot go east and cross the wooden bridge until you reach the area where the a trails splits to the north.


Typically Mourning Warbler along with Connecticut Warbler are thicket lovers and they have become increasingly hard to find in Nichol's Arboretum where Arb artificial landscaping practices put a very high premium on the destruction and uprooting all thickets to be found at the site. That makes me mad. Don't you just love chainsaws, leaf blowers, artificial designer fires, and intensive removal of thickets to do restoration of park-like appearances.

Subject: [birders] Chuck-will's-widow - Sharonville SGA - Norvell Township, Jackson County
Robyn and I heard the Chuck-will's-widow at the location it was heard
last year; along the east side of Fishville Road, 6 tenths of a mile
north of Easudes Road and just south of the s-curve. It was calling at
9:40 when we reached that spot and called for about 5 minutes. It could
have been calling earlier, but we were listening farther south from
where it had been reported earlier this week. There were at least 5
Whip-poor-wills calling along Fishville. I did attempt to record the
CWWI call, but there was a lot of Gray Tree Frog and Spring Peeper
competition, so I'm not sure if I captured it. I'll work on that
recording tomorrow and add it to my eBird checklist if successful.

This is now the 8th consecutive year that Chuck-will's-widow has been
heard in this area. It was first discovered in 2011 by Craig Robson and
Heidi Doman.

The hawk has a really small tail, and I didn't hear any Red Tail type calls, but I have been hearing "chuckles" more like Cooper's sounds. If this is a juvenile Cooper, it is really large.


So what's the diagnosis? I'll keep any eye out to see if I can see it in flight.

Subject: [birders] House Sparrows attacking House Wren box
I need advice on how to stop aggressive House Sparrows from trying to get
into newly occupied House Wren box.
Though they are too big to fit, they poke their heads in and may be trying
to remove the nest.
I also saw a sparrow dive-bomb the female Wren as she was trying to enter
the box.
The male is trying bravely to fend off the sparrows.
When I can I either run outside or open the window and clap my hands, which
scares off the sparrows but not the wrens. But the sparrows eventually
return.
I am afraid that the wrens will either abandon their nest, or one of them
will not survive.

Please offer any thoughts on what to do.

Subject: [birders] Magee Marsh: WAS Field Trip Report = Swing Low Sweet Gorgeous Birds!
Our group of ten WAS birders (who were joined by a few others here and
there throughout the day) were almost the first to arrive at Magee Marsh
during Sunday morning's cold, rainy weather. When the rain stopped at 8 am,
almost birds were swinging low on branches of bushes, shrubs, trees, or
foraging on the ground. Cape May, Black-throated green, Black-throated
blue, Blackburnian, Northern Parula, and Chestnut-sided warblers (both
males and females) were numerous and mostly at eye level or below. It was a
really bonanza for birders but stressful for hungry birds anxious to fuel
up and continue their migration farther north to their summer nesting
grounds.

Richard Crossley, author of the Crossley ID Guides, spotted a
BLACK-THROATED GREY WARBLER east of the tower and a birder stampede to this
location was immediately underway. We waited for a while, eventually
joining the mob scene, but failing to see this rarity. A few hours later,
our WAS group was birding beyond the bridge that begins the big loop. A
birder spotted the rarity, calling it out within earshot, and we were close
enough so that almost all of us WAS birders saw it. Although this bird was
motoring east at breakneck speed, quick-on-the-draw Dave Amamoto got a
snapshot <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45676666> of this rare warbler
that he posted to our eBird list at https://ebird.org/view/
checklist/S45676666. Way to go Dave!

We spotted a PHILADELPHIA VIREO close to a Warbling vireo so we could
contrast the former's delicate yellow coloring to drabness of the latter.
Northern Waterthrush were loud and boisterous so everyone got on their big,
lusty song, and saw a couple of birds firsthand. Both Blue-winged and
Canada warblers were onesies but all got good, long looks.

In mid afternoon, we motored to the new Howard Marsh where Dunlins and
Black-bellied plovers were in full breeding plumage. Three species each of
terns and gulls were in view. Thanks to Jessica Adamczck and Dave for
taking the lead here because their field trip leader was fading, eventually
revived with an ice cream fix at nearby DJ's.

Special thanks to Dave for compiling the lists, and to all WAS birders who
helped one another find this and that bird. Despite bad weather at the
start, we had a fantastic and memorable day!

The first thought that occurs to me would be to go to the Macauley Library website and work through their 529 recordings of mourning warblers. Each of their recordings is tied to a specific date/time stamp and geo location. Since they are audio recordings, the regiolects could be identified directly. Mapping that data should be useful.

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.

Audubon Society reporting
http://www.audubon.org/magazine/spring-2017/this-guy-mapping-how-warblers-migrate-just

Please send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound Lab (jpitocchATanselm.edu).

I would really appreciate your help and contributions this year to this Citizens Science Project.

Birders,
I don't have contact info for Christopher Dick, who generated this report. If anyone knows him, please forward his contact info to me.
There is a Cooper's Hawk nest at that exact location. There is no way these birds would tolerate a Gos in there territory. This week we witnessed them showing a Peregrine Falcon out of their area, in a dramatic way.
Lots of frantic flight, and screaming.
A female Coop can look a whole lot like a Gos in the proper light. This one is a really big girl!

Good Birding,

Subject: [birders] Interesting Red-winged Blackbird Behavior
Greetings,

My apologies if this does not meet posting requirements for this listserve,

On my way home from visiting family in Ohio, I saw a male Red-winged Blackbird get hit and by a car in front of me.

It was flopping around on the road as I went by. I turned around in a driveway to get the poor bird.

As I was coming upon the bird after turning around, a female Red-wing flew in and landed next to the seemingly lifeless body of the male.

She walked around him, flapping her wings and poking at him. She then grabbed one of his wings and tried to pull him off the road.

She couldn’t drag him very far and then flew off.

I’ve seen a dog do something similar when another dog got hit by a car, grabbing the injured dog by the collar and dragging it off the road. But this is the first time I’ve ever seen a bird do as such.

Jeff Schultz

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 7:30am-11:00am. All Saints Cemetery and Preserve
Leader: Don Burlett (<baikalteal13...>)
Meet near the administration building just in from the entrance off Nelsey,
just south of Andersonville Rd. 4401 Nelsey Rd Waterford, MI 48329. We’ll
proceed to bird the grounds and the preserve. There is a grassy field area
and some water and trees to provide habitat. This will be our first visit
to this site.

Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:30am-1:00pm. Algonac State Park and Harsen’s Island
Leader: Don Burlett (<baikalteal13...>)
Meet in the parking lot of Algonac State Park, just north of Algonac along
Route 29. We'll bird the park early in the day, checking out several
different habitats. Then in the late morning, we'll head back down to the
Harsen's Island Ferry and carpool over to the island to bird the variety of
lakeside habitats there, hoping to see Black Terns and other birds. We'll
visit the St. Clair Flats Wildlife area along the way. Bring a lunch or
snack as finding someplace to eat takes time and effort. A state park pass
is required. Please contact the leader to help work out carpooling
opportunities to avoid a long string of vehicles.

Please see our website for details about upcoming events. You do not have
to be a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

It's really raining hard at Magee Marsh this morning. I'm still meeting at
the Park-and-Ride at 5:50 am because I'm committed to the trip. I will meet
field trip goers at the Warbler Display at 7:15 am but we will wait in our
cars for the driving rain to stop. It might slow down at 8:30 am when I
meet the second wave of field trip goers at the Warbler Display. We will
plot our strategy and it will depend on the rain but it's really coming
down hard this morning.

Please bring a book or something quiet to do in the car because we will
wait until the rain slows down.

For those traveling to Magee Marsh tomorrow, Sunday, May 13, for the WAS
field trip, we will have two meeting times at the Warbler Display at the
west entrance to the boardwalk:

1. We will meet at the Warbler Display at 7:15 am to gather, use the
facilities, and start birding. If I am not there to greet you, we were
delayed driving to Magee (it happens even on a Sunday morning). Please be
patient and we will get there. Birding is almost always great at this
entrance so scan the trees, bushes, and ground for birds.

2. We will check the Warbler Display at 8:30 am to gather, use the
facilities, and continue birding.

If you are concerned about meeting up, please message me, and we will
exchange cell phone numbers in a private email message. Many thanks and see
you soon!

Subject: [birders] Time error for part of Washtenaw Audubon's Field Trip to Magee Marsh on Sunday May 13
Birders and friends,
Our carpool to Magee Marsh does meet at 5:50 a.m. from the Plymouth Rd.
Park and Ride, at US-23 in Ann Arbor, with a 6 a.m. departure. However, we
will meet Karen Markey and the rest of the carpoolers at the "Warbler
Display" at Magee Marsh's WEST boardwalk entrance at about 7:15 am., for
those who don't meet at the Park and Ride. Please adjust your schedules
accordingly. The website may say 8:30, but should say 7:15 a.m. for
meeting at Magee.

Good birding, and dress warmly. On these cold days in May, the warblers
are often low and close, feeding near the ground where it is warmer and
there are bugs.
So the birding can be spectacular!

Good birding,

Juliet Berger
President, Washtenaw Audubon Society

Subject: [birders] Yesterday's Northern Goshawk report at Dolph Park-- Must be an error in ID
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45524055

Birders,
I don't have contact info for Christopher Dick, who generated this report.
If anyone knows him, please forward his contact info to me.
There is a Cooper's Hawk nest at that exact location. There is no way
these birds would tolerate a Gos in there territory. This week we witnessed
them showing a Peregrine Falcon out of their area, in a dramatic way.
Lots of frantic flight, and screaming.
A female Coop can look a whole lot like a Gos in the proper light. This
one is a really big girl!

Good Birding,

Juliet Berger

Subject: [birders] Final reminder: WAS Field Trip to Magee Marsh on Sunday, May 13
Please join me for a Washtenaw Audubon Society field trip to Magee Marsh
this Sunday, May 13. We will carpool from the Plymouth Road park-and-ride
parking lot at 5:50 am, leave the lot at 6 am sharp. (This lot is at the
southwest intersection of US-23 and Plymouth Road.) Please do not arrive
late at the park-and-ride lot because we could be gone!

Alternatively, you can meet me and the rest of the carpoolers at the
"Warbler Display" at Magee Marsh's WEST boardwalk entrance at about 7:15
am. I plan to return in late afternoon, possibly making a stop at a nearby
marsh (e.g., Metzger, Maumee, Howard) if an unusual bird is reported there,
but individual drivers and their carpools may arrange to come back sooner.

Sunday's forecast has changed since my first message about this trip. It
will be colder with thunderstorms ending as we arrive in the morning,
temperatures starting in the low 50s and rising to barely low 60s, and ENE
winds. It will be cold! Such winds can blow across Lake Erie making Magee
downright frigid! Bring a hat, warm jacket, gloves, scarf, insect
repellent, lunch, and plenty of water or fluids for hydration. Magee Marsh
is boardwalk so athletic shoes/sneakers should be fine.

Except for the Breakfast Guy on the Friendship Trail, there is NO food or
drink for sale at Magee Marsh or anywhere nearby -- please pack a LUNCH
along with plenty of WATER and your favorite snacks and soft drinks.

If you have questions, please message me at ylime AT umich.edu. See you at
the Plymouth Road park-and-ride carpark at 5:50 am or at the Magee Marsh
warbler display at 7:15 am this Sunday, May 13.

PS. Messaging me that you are meeting me at the Plymouth Road park-and-ride
lot would be helpful so that I know you will be joining the trip.

Subject: [birders] Reminder OAS Events: Young Birders Saturday May 12 and Magee Marsh field trip Saturday May 12
Young Birders event Saturday, May 12, 2018, 9:00am-12:00pm. Hawk Woods
Nature Center.
May 12 marks International Migratory Bird Day. Birds that have spent winter
in the tropics are now returning to the north to breed. Learn about the
hazards of migration through games and other activities. In addition take a
hike to see some of the amazing warblers returning to Michigan. One of the
most famous Michigan warblers will be highlighted – the Kirtland’s Warbler.
Snacks and educational materials will be provided. To register for this
event please see the instructions on the Young Birders page on our website.
Contact Kathleen Dougherty for details at <kad8186...>

Field trip Saturday, May 12, 2018, 8:00am-1:00pm. Magee Marsh and
Environs. Leader:
Don Burlett <baikalteal13...>
We'll meet at the west end of the parking lot along the lake at Magee Marsh
at first light for those who desire and again at 8 AM. This day will be one
of wandering the boardwalk (among the crowds) and visiting several other
sites in the area looking for many species. Depending on the weather, this
could be a spectacular day. Bring a lunch or snack and water as stopping
and leaving the site to find food is always an inconvenience.

Please see our website for details about upcoming events. You do not have
to be a member to participate. Everyone is welcome. http://www.oaklandaud
ubon.org/

Thank you,
Phil Bugosh

I normally don’t care how many
birds or how many species I see when I go out observing
birds; I would rather spend my time getting to know each
bird I do see as intimately as possible. However, today’s
session was remarkably productive as things go here.  I
wound up seeing 25 species of birds, all on the same 5 acre
property, within the space of less than two hours. The
checklist is here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45518119.

Over the last couple of days I've still been seeing a single pine siskin at my finch feeder in Clinton Township.  I haven't been able to determine if it is a single individual or multiple solitary individuals.

Subject: [birders] Re: small thrush question
Thanks for all the responses. It sounds like the bird I saw was most likely
a Swainson's Thrush or a Gray-cheeked Thrush. It did not have any red on
it, so not a Hermit Thrush.
It was a beautiful bird, glad I got to see it.

> Only my second sighting and, boy, was this time exciting. The bird was with a large group of BOGU and assorted Terns. At one time the bird was not flying in the group but was flying alone so the dark underwing jumped right out. Never saw it like that before. VERY cool. Nice memory."

Subject: RE: [birders] small thrush question
Hello Maxine,
Gray-cheeked and Swainson’s Thrushes are the most common migrants this time of year, with grayish backs. The Swainson’s is more abundant. Hermit thrushes are also possible but tend to migrate earlier.
allaboutbirds.org gives you some good comparison photos.

Good birding,

Juliet Berger

Subject: [birders] Washtenaw May Count is this weekend
Hello Birders and Friends,
Our Washtenaw Co. May Bird Count is May 12, this Saturday. If you have not
yet found a place to help out with this event, please contact me, and I
will assign you where you are most needed.
Details are on our website, but the gist of it is, we have eBird accounts
set up for all Townships in Washtenaw County, and everyone should know
where they are birding, check in with the area leader to get an assignment,
and share your personal eBird checklists with the TWP in which you bird.
Put the TWP name in the comments section for extra thoroughness. Feeder
watchers within the County, same drill, share your eBird checklists from
your feeder with the appropriate area leader depending upon which TWP you
live in.

See www.washtenawaudubon.org for more details including all TWP usernames
for sharing.

Good Birding,

Juliet Berger
President, Washtenaw Audubon Society

Subject: [birders] Orioles are all wrong!
What kind of bad habits do those birds learn wherever they overwinter?  Their musical call (around here) is completely different than it was last year and...as I recall, last year's was a little different than the year before.  Do your orioles sound the same as you remember?  Could strong winds have brought birds from different regions into areas they've not been dominant in before?

Woodies passed me by in a flash this year.  Weird weather seems to have stymied nesting attempts of cavity-nesting ducks this year. Very little interest and no takers (to date) in any of the offered housing.

From: Alice Elliott <alelliot...>
Subject: [birders] Help Prevent Window Collisions During Migration
Hey folks,
It's been quite a busy listserv lately, so I'll make this quick.

I come to you as the co-founder of Washtenaw Safe Passage
<https://www.facebook.com/washtenawsafepassage> (and this year, an intern
at the Bird Center of Washtenaw County). We work to reduce window strikes
across Washtenaw County and beyond.

*The Problem*
According to Loss & Loss 2014
<http://www.bioone.org/doi/pdf/10.1650/CONDOR-13-090.1>, windows kill up to
998 million birds a year (2-5% of the North American population of birds).
According to Klem 2009
<https://www.muhlenberg.edu/media/contentassets/images/academics/biology/biology/faculty/klem/aco/documents/Klem-Et-al-2009-A-L-Risk-Factors-WJO-121-01-126-134-l.pdf>,
about 34 million birds are killed in the average urban US city. But
*migration* is when we see window strikes *skyrocket*. Since we got our
start in 2015, Washtenaw Safe Passage volunteers have collected over 300
window strike victims (only 2 survived), the *vast *majority of which were
killed during migration.

*Why You Should Care*
44% of strikes come from buildings 1-3 stories tall (meaning houses), and
56% come from buildings 4-11 stories tall (i.e. apartments).
<https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/stop-blaming-cats-as-many-as-988-million-birds-die-annually-in-window-collisions/2014/02/03/9837fe80-8866-11e3-916e-e01534b1e132_story.html>
(Incidentally,
please ignore the headline of that article-- outdoor cats are also terrible
for birds, but they are not what Safe Passage focuses on). By making your
home safe for birds, you are helping that many more birds get through
migration safely.

*What You Can Do*
Since birds see reflections, not glass, you need to break up that
reflection. And a *single falcon decal isn't enough!* There must be enough
decals so that the birds will not try to fly around them. To prevent
collisions, decals must be spaced every 2 inches: the “2 x 2 rule”, as
published by the American Bird Conservancy.




Products like Feather Friendly, Acopian BirdSavers, ABC BirdTape, and more
are designed to prevent bird strikes, and can easily be found with a quick
Google search:


For those more concerned with aesthetics, window films offer an elegant
alternative:


For the artistically inclined, tempera paint offers a washable way to make
your windows bird-safe and beautiful:



(*Note that the left window is NOT bird safe! See the big open spaces
between the purple birds? But it will be safe when the artist finishes
painting the white dots.)*


If you find that a bird has hit your window, please call the *Bird Center
of Washtenaw County* immediately: 734-761-9640. We are open from 7 AM to 9
PM; if you can't reach us, please keep the bird in a box, away from light
and noise, and handle it as little as possible. *Do not feed or water the
bird*.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions, either about
volunteering with Safe Passage (we always need more people!) or about
making your windows bird-safe. I love helping people with this issue, so I
am always happy to provide consultation on windows. You can reach me at
<aliceell...> You can also follow Washtenaw Safe Passage on Facebook
by clicking here <https://www.facebook.com/washtenawsafepassage>!

Thank you for helping make the skies safe for birds!
-Alice

PS Lights are important too! In fact, thanks to the tireless advocacy of
many who came before me, Ann Arbor has a resolution in place for high-rises
<https://www.a2gov.org/departments/Parks-Recreation/NAP/birds/Pages/SafePassage.aspx>,
at night, to turn off their lights on the fifth floor and above during
migration. However, due to the fact that Washtenaw County is mostly
low-rises (and thus does not have as much of an issue with nocturnal
collisions), Washtenaw Safe Passage focuses more on window strikes.

This morning I looked up at my feeder and saw a bird I've not even seen around here. I knew right away what it was, but was in disbelief. No mistaking the Red-headed Woodpecker! I now officially have seen all 7 lower peninsula Michigan woodpeckers in my yard. I took pictures but they aren't very good... I won't send unless someone asks. 
Orioles, Grosbeaks, indigo Buntings, Thrashers, Catbirds, Bobolink, and all kinds of sparrows are here too (with lingering Tree sparrows and Juncos). Not so much on the warblers yet. Turkeys have taken over my yard as their personal hangout. They're in and out most of the day coming up to my deck and house. Had 5 toms at one time, all puffed up and gorgeous... but the hens could care less!

The following is information about that banded Piping Plover at Lake Saint Clair Metropark 22-30 April 2018.

It foraged for the most part along the broken interface of lawn grass and open sandy beach, probably detecting the subterranean earthworms by feeling them through its feet and/or hearing them. With its bill it then either dug or pulled the worms out of the sand. After eating several worms, the plover returned to the shoreline. See photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/

On 4 May Vince Cavalieri, a Certified Wildlife Biologist, at the East Lansing Field Office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, responded to my question about the origin of the banded Piping Plover at Lake Saint Clair Metropark during 22-30 April 2018:

". . . I assume you are talking about a male plover that actually bred in Green Bay last year. That in itself is kind of a remarkable story. The USACE and Brown County, Wisconsin developed a project to recreate a series of islands that once existed in Green Bay prior to the 1970s. They used dredge from the Fox River and made a series of cells within dikes. Kind of by accident one of the cells kind of turned into good piping plover habitat and it first attracted 1 pair in 2016 and then somewhat remarkably 4 pairs in 2017. The male you saw was part of the 4th pair that developed a nest out on Cat Island last year. I assume it was just stopping by Lake St. Clair Metropark on its way back to Cat Island, but we shall see! The whole Cat Island project has been a tremendous success for shorebirds as there have been I think over 30 species spotted using it as a stopover location including some other rare species like Red Knot and Hudsonian Godwit."

On 5 May Alice Van Zoeren, who manages e-mail for the Great Lakes Piping Plover Conservation Team, <plover...><mailto:<plover...> added to Vince's information:

"We don't know when or where this fellow hatched since he wasn't banded as a chick. As Vince noted he returned to breed last summer (2017) at Cat Island in Green Bay, WI."

It's worth while checking out the Great Lakes Piping Plover Conservation Team, especially their captive-breeding program in conjunction with the Detroit Zoo staff at the Michigan Biological Station near Pellston, Michigan.

Hi, all,
I have a question for all the experts on this list. Two or three weeks ago,
I observed a robin busily constructing a nest in the arbor vitae by our
front door. A few days later I found a robins egg, undamaged, on the front
porch. A couple days later, no parent on the nest, I peeked in and
discovered one robin egg in the nest along with 5 darker speckled eggs
which I assumed (wrongly, it seems) to be cowbird eggs. Cowbird are around
and I thought I glimpsed one coming into the tree once.

Actually, it is a grackle! I'm over run with them this year. Do grackles
take over robin nests? If not, what happened? If the robin egg hatches,
what then?

Any enlightenment will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mary Alice

Subject: [birders] New level of absurdity in the Arb (Ann Arbor)
Unbelievably Arb (Nichol's Arboretum) authorities are now using leaf blowers to artificially manipulate and cultivate vegetation in the Arboretum (Ann Arbor). This nonsense is nothing but an Environmental diversion and has minimal connection with preserving natural habitats and native ecosystems as these people so piously claim. If you really want to do that, you would put most (all?) of your efforts into stopping Human Population growth and decreasing Human impacts drastically on the natural environment both in the United States and Worldwide. Messing around with small artificial landscapes with a few native plants ain't going to cut it.

Healthy populations of birds and butterflies both locally, nationally, and internationally are heavily dependent on large scale highly interconnected natural habitats filled with rich biodiversity.

Subject: [birders] head to head over the jelly and other yard birds
Used an old two layer metal soap dish (well washed, of course) tied to the
railing of our deck to serve up this year's grape jelly for all comers. The
top layer of the dish is brought in each night to discourage coon
depredation. This setup is working better than old dishes or commercial
nectar feeders.

Interesting visitors to this jelly dish this morning were a red bellied
woodpecker and the usual oriole. Unusual? Yes, because I had never before
seen these two birds face to face across a three-inch dish. The red bellied
made one half-hearted jab at the oriole and then they both went back to the
pile of grape jelly.

Other morning pleasures were two white crowned sparrows on the deck floor
pecking at black sunflower seeds and two rose breasted grosbeaks on the
feeders and the railing for the same seeds.

Oh, and a chipmunk scavenged his share too.

Subject: [birders] Yard birding
Folks,  I don't typically post any activity in my yard but today was a good day.  I walked my yard for about 90 minutes and had a nice time.  42 species including two Eastern Towhees at my feeders, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Baltimore Oriole, 7 warblers (Orange-crowned, Tennessee, Nashville, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, Palm, Common Yellowthroat), several White-crowned Sparrows and many other usuals.  I also confirmed a number of nesters in my boxes or on my house or real close to the house (bluebirds, chickadees, robin, house finch, eastern phone, house sparrow and tree swallow).  My "nature preserved concept seems to be working.  No hummers yet.

Subject: RE: [birders] Matthaei Botanical Gardens Conservatory Hummingbird
I’ve spoken to Paul Girard, Collections/Natural Areas Specialist at Matthaei, and he tells me (as Bob Grese told me earlier) that all of the roof vents actually have screens on them, and it would be an arduous process to remove one or 2—might not be done until mid to late summer. So she’s getting out through the open glass, only to be repelled by the screen. He is going to try to leave a door open into the staff work area, and then more doors open to the outside, in hopes she will find her way out. Otherwise, in the next several weeks, we may need to try to get Allen Chartier, our resident Hummingbird expert, out to capture, band and release her. As we spoke, Paul Girard was watching her flying around the ceiling looking for a way out.

Well I had a surprise yesterday! While driving west on M-50 from Dundee
into Briton I saw what at first I believed to be a white bag on the top
of a telephone pole one mile exactly east of the city limits of Briton.
As it turned out it was an adult snowy owl watching traffic go by. Wow!
I may have seen this same owl a number of months ago in roughly the same
area. It was reported off and on all winter. I never thought to be
seeing one so late. I thought it was great seeing a male Indigo Bunting
under the feeder in the morning but this was Great!

Subject: [birders] Planning for the WAS Field Trip to Magee Marsh on Sunday, May 13
Please join me for a Washtenaw Audubon Society field trip to Magee Marsh
this Sunday, May 13. We will carpool from the Plymouth Road park-and-ride
parking lot at 5:50 am, leaving the lot at 6 am sharp. Please do not arrive
late at the park-and-ride lot because we could be gone!

Alternatively, you can meet me and the rest of the carpoolers at the
"Warbler Display" at Magee Marsh's WEST boardwalk entrance at about 7:15
a.m. I plan to return in late afternoon, possibly making a stop at nearby
Metzger Marsh or Maumee Bay State Park, but individual drivers and their
carpools may arrange to come back sooner. Bring a hat, insect repellent,
lunch, and plenty of water or fluids for hydration. There is NO food or
drink for sale at Magee Marsh or anywhere nearby -- please pack a LUNCH
along with plenty of WATER and your favorite snacks and soft drinks. (Last
year, there was a breakfast truck on one of the trails ... I don't know
whether it will be selling coffee and snacks there this year but this
trip's objective is birding, not snacking.)

The Marsh should be at peak, and there will be a crowd due to the last day
of the 10-day Biggest Week in American Birding Festival
<http://www.biggestweekinamericanbirding.com/>.

Looking at the long-range forecast for Sunday, May 13, I would suggest you
plan for a warm start in the low 60s, getting warmer with temperatures
reaching the low 70s, beautiful south winds (coaxing birds to Magee), and
with the threat of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Bring a hat, insect
repellent, poncho or rain jacket, and sunscreen, and layer your clothes for
both cool and warm conditions. Magee Marsh is boardwalk so athletic
shoes/sneakers should be fine.

If you have questions, please message me at ylime AT umich.edu. See you at
the Plymouth Road park-and-ride carpark at 5:50 am or at the Magee Marsh
warbler display at 7:15 am this Sunday, May 13.

PS. Messaging me that you are meeting me at the Plymouth Road park-and-ride
lot would be helpful so that I know you will be joining the trip.

Shelter for refreshments after the walk.

Saturday, May 12, 2018, 8:00am-1:00pm. Magee Marsh and Environs. Leader:
Don Burlett <baikalteal13...>
We'll meet at the west end of the parking lot along the lake at Magee Marsh
at first light for those who desire and again at 8 AM. This day will be one
of wandering the boardwalk (among the crowds) and visiting several other
sites in the area looking for many species. Depending on the weather, this
could be a spectacular day. Bring a lunch or snack and water as stopping
and leaving the site to find food is always an inconvenience.

Please see our website for details about upcoming events. You do not have
to be a member to participate. Everyone is welcome. http://www.oaklandaud
ubon.org/

Thank you,
Phil Bugosh
Oakland Audubon Society - Celebrating 60 Years!

Thanks for sharing! I always enjoy your perspective.

Excuse my usage of Metro Beach in this communication. For those who have been birding before birding was cool, Metro Beach rolls off the tongue with greater affection than Lake Saint Clair Metropark. My first visit to Metro was in 1960. In that year I was ready to expand beyond Saint Clair Shores with its remnant patches of wet woods and seasonally flooded fields. I hitch-hiked up Jefferson from my neighborhood at 10 Mile Road. I was only 13. There was no talk of stranger danger. (Though once, a guy picked me up with a fresh bullet wound in the upper arm.)

In those days Metro didn't have much of a nature trail, just a short loop for the most part through what was then Cottonwood saplings and brushy patches of Sandbar Willow. The best way to get around was to wade through the cattails. Any risk added to the fun. I thought nothing of crossing truly deep mudflats where more than once I temporarily lost my shoes. And all of this was done without the distraction of smart phones and Ebird alerts.

Birding was not a lister's game. Who heard of lisitng? For a whole year or two I did not see a bird watcher at Metro. Rather, birding was a learning curve. Birding wasn't the big bucks of today: cheap binouclars that barely functioned by today's standards, a pocket-sized notebook stained with non water-resistant ink, and a Peterson tucked in an empty binoc-case. And what sights I had on those first visits: Blue-winged Teals, Common Gallinules, Soras, Virgina and King Rails, all of these with their broods; Black Terns nesting on floating boards, Marsh Wren nests, and an unprotected colony of Common Terns at what is now Huron Point. (Eventually a miniature train track for the public's pleasure was allowed to replace the terns.) As long as the grass wasn't cut in the wide expanse along the south marsh, the Upland Sandpipers stayed. The results: muddy shoes, wet jeans, an over-sized plaid shirt covered with bugs and the smell of dripping muck. Think of those poor souls in their clean cars kind enough to give me a ride back to Saint Clair Shores.


Going green, protecting the environment and its wildlife--forget it. There were more significant things of cultural and social value in my working-class neighborhood--the top ten on the radio, sports, sports and more sports, baseball cards, wicked-looking shoes, Lucky Strikes and Camel packs, bubble gum, greasy hair with a curly waterfall complete with a DA.

Thus I of no social standing wandered alone through Metro Beach's watery wilderness--mastering bird identification, before birding was cool.

Subject: [birders] Hudson Mills field trip report: Few migrants but plenty of special summer residents
Today's WAS field trip to Hudson Mills Metropark yielded few migrating
birds but plenty of special summer residents. A LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH burst
into song on the opposite shore of the Huron River; Norka recorded his song
and uploaded it to this trip's eBird checklist
<https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45373909>. Nearby a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER
not only sang but took a bath for all of us to see on the Hudson Mills side
of the river's shoreline; see snapshots
<https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45373909> taken by Norka S, Dan F, and
Len S also on eBird. We saw a whopping four BLUE-WINGED WARBLERS, and both
<https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45373909> song and images are available
on eBird. All had great looks at Indigo Bunting, Eastern Kingbird, Eastern
Bluebird, and Yellow-throated vireo.

Thanks to Dave M, Jim L, and Faye S for carrying my scope from time to
time, to Norka S for compiling the checklist, to Juliet B for answering the
hard questions the leader passed onto her, and to all birders for helping
their fellow birders find birds darting to, fro, hither, and yon.

Below is a complete list of birds seen or heard by the group. It's a long
list, totaling 65 species, and few birders in the group got them all.

Subject: [birders] Today: Birds of Peru is free Washtenaw Audubon talk, THIS SUNDAY, May 6, 2:30pm, Ann Arbor, all invited
Birders and friends,

Please join us this afternoon for the following free program this Sunday, May 6, at 2:30pm at the beautiful U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor. You do not have to be a Washtenaw Audubon member to attend.

Sunday, May 6, 2:30pm

Gunnar Engblom on Birds, Birding, and Bird Conservation in Peru

Join Gunnar Engblom, a noted birding guide and expert on Peruvian birds and birding, for an interesting and insightful program on combining birding, culture, history, and gastronomy during birding trips in
Peru. Gunnar is the owner of Kolibri Expeditions, which is the tour company that Washtenaw Audubon used on our highly successful trip to Peru a few years ago. Peru has confirmed sightings of 1801 species of birds. Gunnar has seen most of them, and has some wonderful photographs. Gunnar also has some interesting thoughts on the future of birding which he will share with us.

This program is free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though we would welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educational activities. Washtenaw Audubon programs are held at the U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens, 1800 North Dixboro Rd., Ann Arbor. In addition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and field trips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program. For more information on free Washtenaw Audubon programs and field trips, go to
www.washtenawaudubon.org <http://www.washtenawaudubon.org/>

Hope to see you this Sunday at 2:30pm.

I am a VERY new birder here in A2, and went to Magee Marsh on Friday. It
was a lot of fun, not crowded at all even with an 11:30a arrival. I had
many wonderful little warblers ID for me by the other very friendly birders
there. It was so amazing to see all these tiny little beautiful birds
right at eye level. Magnolia, Tenessee, Nashville, Blackburnian, Cerulean,

There were some food trucks set up at the Ottawa NWR right next door, and I
did the auto tour. Near the shore there on the tour I was told there was a

I am an amateur radio operator and find that operating radio portable at

Subject: [birders] Matthaei Botanical Gardens Conservatory Hummingbird
Birders and friends,

I wonder if any of us have seen the Ruby-throated Hummingbird female that
spent the winter inside the Matthaei Botanical Gardens Conservatory, in the
last few days.
We are going to have to try to capture and release her if she doesn't find
her way out on her own. It is time for her to be away to wherever she came
from!! Allen Chartier has volunteered to help her out if necessary.
Please report to this list if you have seen the bird at Matthaei, in the
Conservatory, in the next several days and weeks. Then we'll formulate a
plan based upon whether she has found her way out or not.

Good birding,

Juliet

Subject: [birders] Ann Arbor Warblers this morning - 6 Orange-Crowned, N Parula, Cape May etc
Hi,

This may be my only outing this Spring, so I'm gonna post! First went to
Dolph, which was slow, but netted ten warbler species, highlighted by a
nice, near eye level Blackburnian.

Then I parked at the entrance to Furstenburg Park at Geddes, so I could
bird there, and then walk the S. Side of the River to the Arb, all of which
I did.

The entrance to Furstenburg was very nice (And by this i mean the areas
surrounding the two bridges.) There was one Orange-Crowned right near the
entrance, and then 3 together at the far end of the second bridge. At this
spot there were also two N Parulas, (one persistently near eye-level),a
Tennessee Warb, among many palms and Yellow-Rumps and a smattering of other
things.

I then walked to the Arb and walked around inside the Arb and saw almost no
migrants. Past the W end of Dow Prairie, W of the Pines, where there is a
path up to the railroad tracks, where one can cross to the other side
(although they are making it more difficult), there was a flock of
Warblers, with maybe 10 Palms, and a gorgeous bright Cape May, and two more
Orange-Crowned!

So, all in all a nice morning.

Curt

Subject: [birders] Dolph Park Kirtland's Warbler and the NAP Work Day tomorrow
Hello Birders and Friends,
By now most birders in SE Michigan are aware that a Kirtland's Warbler was
discovered at Dolph Park, in Ann Arbor, and was seen by MOBS of birders. It
was last seen on the far Northeast side of the park, actually out of the
park boundaries. With favorable winds and no rain predicted, the bird is
likely to complete its migration tonight, but it is always worth checking
in the morning, to see if it is still there.

I want to let you all know that Natural Area Preservation Division of Ann
Arbor Parks and Recreation, (NAP) where I work as the ornithologist, has a
restoration workday planned at Dolph Park tomorrow, so there are likely to
be a dozen or more volunteers in amongst the trees South of First Sister
Lake, from 1-4:00 pm, probably pulling garlic mustard, in this beautiful
area full of wildflowers, to give the flowers a chance to stay healthy and
spread. Please be courteous to each other and know we all care for the
health of Dolph Park and it's flora and fauna, and birds, of course. The
workday leaders have been updated that tomorrow may be especially full of
warblers and birders, so they will know to expect you!!

All the best and good birding,

Juliet Berger

To all those birders now enjoying the birds and lakes of Dolph Park, please be aware that a 95 unit senior housing development has been proposed to abut the north end of First Sister Lake on a currently undeveloped 3.5 acre parcel. Walking the trail in search of the Kirtland’s today, just north of Porter Street, one can easily see the flagging tape associated with the development. The site is zoned single-family residential, but rezoning has been requested. Anyone with concerns about this development who wishes to express them can write to the City Planning Commission or can connect with those in the park neighborhood opposed to the Lockwood Development.

Subject: [birders] Re: Best places to bird tomorrow A2...
Today's south winds switch to the west tonight, and the sky will clear.
Perhaps this will be an incentive for today's migrating birds to head
farther north on a cloudless night. Also the winds will calm down tonight,
which might push today's migrating birds that don't head north and
tomorrow's new arrivals higher in the trees. These are just guesses.

Dolph's trees and vegetation generally are low, woody, and dense. The Arb's
trees and vegetation generally are high; however, few trees and bushes
anywhere have totally leafed out. So it may be a matter of style. Do you
want to look high into the Arb's tall trees or low into Dolph's spindly
bushes and trees?

When Dea and I birded Dolph today, we noticed that tomorrow is a "work day"
at Dolph so birding might be interrupted by busy work crews. Whatever you
do, get out there and enjoy a great spring day!

Terry,

Today I captured and banded a male Pine Siskin that was showing
physiological signs of breeding. In 2009, when they bred widely across
southern Michigan, they had fledged young before the end of May.

Birders,

A Yellow-throated Warbler was singing all morning today adjacent to the
Nature Center at Lake St. Clair Metropark. I had too many birds to band to
try to see it, but in early afternoon Tom Heatley was able to photograph it
in front of the Nature Center.

Birders and Banders,

I have posted a summary, including photo highlights, from 4 days of banding
in Lake April at my station in southeastern Michigan. the trend, as was the
case for early April, is late lingering winter species.

Check it out at: http://mihummingbirdguy.blogspot.com/

Banding results from today (May 4) where we were experiencing the third day
of a "soft" fallout, will be posted in a week or two, once I catch my
breath, so stay tuned and check back.

Subject: [birders] Kirtland's warbler photos from Dolph Park on Ann Arbor's west side
Thanks to Roger Kuhlman for finding the Kirtland's Warbler (KW) and Mike
Sefton for telling us the bird's location in Dolph Park. After birding at
Dolph all morning, Dea and I were enjoying a sit-down lunch nearby and saw
Mike's message. Leisurely, we returned to Dolph and searched the location.
We relocated the stunning male KW in the brush on a rarely-used trail, and
I snapped photos. A photo is attached and more are at our eBird checklist
online at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45258901.
<https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45258901>

Rarely have I experienced such a fallout. Arriving at Dolph at 8:20 am, Dea
and I started up the entrance to Dolph on Parklake Road and notice a steady
stream of birds darting from south to north. We followed them throughout
the park, Dea observing that birds were mostly on the northeast side of the
park, where it was wetter and there was more vegetation. An awesome day
with 18 warblers total on our morning and afternoon lists ... that's about
half of the warblers we can see here in Michigan!

Pine Siskins are still hanging around in my yard, which is very unusual. First time I've had them at the same time as Northern Orioles. I'm guessing they couldn't have fledglings already, could they? I just observed what looked like two females - one was feeding the other which was flapping it's wings like a fledgling. Anyone have any thoughts on this behavior?

Subject: [birders] Kirtland Warbler at Dolph Nature Area
I had great views of a Kirtland Warbler walking the ground of the understory and later the trail about 10 feet ahead of me in Dolph park about noontime. The location was the extreme western section of the nature area. To get there you have to walk on the west in back of several houses until you reach an opening with houses on both the west and north. Then get up on a small rise and continue north along a makeshift trail a tenth or two tenths of a mile.


I had gone there hoping to see a White-eyed Vireo because they have often hung out there in the past. As I was returning from as far as you can take the trail, I noticed a good-sized warbler walking on the ground with an intense yellow throat and breast. Black streaks were only on the sides of the breasts and it had half white eye arcs above and bellow on the blackish face. There was blackish striping on the back and the bird was tail dipping as it walked on the ground. Truly it was one very beautiful bird.

· Raptor population trends
· Possible shifts in migration patterns: routes and timing
· Raptor telemetry and technological advances
· Conservation issues and threats facing raptors
· Education initiatives, including young hawkwatchers
· Challenges to sustaining and maintaining hawkwatch sites
· Weather patterns and migration in a changing climate
· Advances in raptor identification in the field
· Raptor photography

Key dates

The deadline to submit a proposal is May 11, 2018. You will be notified by June 11, 2018 if your proposal is chosen.

Submission Requirements

In no more than 150 words, please summarize and describe your presentation and indicate how it fits within the topics of special interested noted above. If your proposal covers topics other than these, please describe why you think it should be selected. If selected, this description will be included in the conference program.

After a fairly quiet trip through part of Dolph, I exited onto Porter street to where it dead ends over First Sister Lake and happened across an active spot:

male blackburnian low in shrubs
palm warbler
yellow-rumpeds
yellows
bay-breasted (further down the path behind the houses that leads into Dolph: the “sparrow spot")
ruby-crowned kinglet
white throated sparrow
phoebe
vireo (type?)


one orange-crowned, I believe, inside the park (central section) and scattered yellows, myrtles, palm, green heron, orioles, abundant warbling vireos, orioles, catbirds etc..

Subject: [birders] Final reminder: WAS field trip to Hudson Mills Metropark, Sunday, May 6, 7:45 am
This is a final reminder for the WAS-sponsored tour of spring migrants at
Hudson Mills Metropark on Sunday, May 6. We will meet at 7:45 am sharp at
the flagpole in the front of the Activity Center. If the entry booth is
unmanned, you can purchase a $10 daily parking permit from Metropark staff
at the Activity Center.

Sunday morning's forecast is for showers forecast in the morning and west
winds. It's two days away so let's hope the showers will come earlier or
later in the day. Be prepared for wet, dewy trails, grass, and fields. We
will do lots of hiking, stalking, standing, and circling back over the same
trails. No pets are allowed on the nature trails. Please, no strollers
either.

From Ann Arbor's northeast side, I drive to Hudson Mills as follows: head
north on US-23 and take exit 49, North Territorial Road. Turn left (west)
onto North Territorial and drive about eight to nine miles. A few hundred
feet after passing Huron River Drive, turn left (south) into Hudson Mills
Metropark. Take the second right into a large carpark that ends at the big
Activity Center. If you reach Dexter-Pinckney Road (where there's a
drive-through coffee shop), you have driven too far west on North
Territorial.

We will bird until the bird activity slows down, usually around 11 am. You
can leave the group at any time. Just ask me how to hike back to the
Activity Center's carpark. If you have questions, please message me ASAP.

See this and all WAS field trips at http://www.washtenawaudubon.org/
(scroll down and focus on right side of page).

PS. Save the date Sunday, May 13, leaving Ann Arbor at 5:50 am through late
afternoon, for our field trip to Magee Marsh in NW Ohio. Details to come.

Subject: [birders] Louisiana Waterthrush-Indian Springs Metropark
Since Tuesday the 1st a singing L. Waterthrush in and around woodland marsh's east of hike/bike trail by Mile Marker 3.25.  Year after year, same location and always one of my first Warblers of the year!  Another notable is a singing Prothonotary Warbler near the 6.0 mile marker on hike/bike trail.  Also got a great look at a Kestrel flying over the field near mile marker 3.75.
Wow, what a difference the last couple of days has made for the mass migration in full swing for so many species!!!  Gotta love it!

Bird is much whiter on the back than TRUS would show at this time of the year, commonly. Head, in profile, is more rounded than TRUS, and bill is showing an angle up to where it meets the crown, not as straight as TRUS. Sibley notes that juvenile bills can be "oddly swollen and can appear disproportionately large - judgement of bill size are not useful on these birds." I point this out, as the size of the bill does appear more TRUS, than TUSW. There is a nice separation from the bill to the eye, with currently a thin black line. The rounded border of the top of the bill should be more distinct when the Swan matures. It is showing some lighter coloring where the TRUS-like point is at. I also managed a quick shot as it was swimming, and it shows the less evenly rounded shape of a TRUS."

As it passed within six feet of me, the dark “struts” on trailing edge of creamy white underwing linings were plainly evident. Dorsally, dark brown primaries/ leading edge contrasted with other (lighter) brown wing and body areas; the tail was noticeably pale in comparison. As to viewing time: I was mesmerized by those “struts” for about three seconds, and had about 2 seconds to note dorsal details before the bird had passed me. As I was contorted in my chair, by the time I got to my feet and turned around, no more views were to be had. "

The Easten wood-Pewee lacked the dark cap and had its feathers crested on its head. Both had buff brownish coloration on the chest but the Easten-Wood Pewee had much than the Phoebe. The Eastern Phoebe was bobbing its tail a lot more than the Pewee. Both were observed fly catching. Sadly they were to far away to see the bill coleration so could not tell wether the suspected Pewee had a bright lower mandable."
