Subject: [birders] New book about Birds and History of their Names
This info is from Jim McCormac’s blog (date 5July2020) www.jimmccormac.blogspot.com <http://www.jimmccormac.blogspot.com/> . If you enjoy nature and learning, I highly recommend his blog!



“ “Bird is the Word: An Historical Perspective on the Names of North American Birds” (McDonald & Woodward; 437 pages, $39.95) by Gary H. Meiter

What’s in a bird name? Lots of facts and history.

For decades, the bible for bird nomenclature was “The Dictionary of American Bird Names,” by Ernest Choate. A slender volume released in 1973 and updated in 1985, it spanned 226 pages and was a favorite of birders.

Author Gary H. Meiter has created an elegantly presented treatise on bird nomenclature that is the new standard. He treats more than 900 species in “Bird is the Word” — almost every species found in North America north of Mexico.

A brief introduction describes the book’s layout, including an interesting summary of notable American ornithologists. Meiter concisely describes the science of naming things, and the history of how common and scientific names came to be. The reader will learn interesting trivia, such as what a tautonym is (there are 16 North American bird species with tautonymic names).

The pages are punctuated with beautiful illustrations by some of America’s most accomplished avian artists. It’s a visual delight to turn a page and face a rendering of a pair of pileated woodpeckers by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, or a magnificent frigatebird in full swoop from the hand of John James Audubon. The inclusion of artwork is a nice touch, and one that reinforces this book’s attention to detail.

Interesting sidebars are peppered throughout the accounts. There are 42, and they serve as intellectual nuggets breaking up the main text. Sidebars cover all manner of intriguing trivia, as suggested by headers such as “Bird of Fire,” “The Trickster of the North Woods” and “Birds as Weather Prophets.”

Each bird family is prefaced with an introductory description. Perhaps you have wondered why whip-poor-wills are known as goatsuckers. You will find the answer here.

Bird lore is rife with fanciful colloquial names, and this book seems to have them all. For instance, a woodpecker common in Ohio, the northern flicker, has about 160 nicknames. These include cotton-rump, high-hole, and yellowhammer. A wonderful sobriquet for the American bittern is belcher-squelcher, but if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, Meiter lists dozens of other nicknames for this heron.

Learning a bird’s name is just the start of getting to know it. “Bird is the Word” will decode that name and in the process expand your knowledge of the species. Anyone who enjoys the feathered crowd should have a copy of this book.

Subject: [birders] Putting closure on my "Avian Refugee" posting
Thanks also to Patrick, Lisa, Chris, and Jame. The collective knowledge in this list of birds foreign and domestic has centered on the Japanese Quail or Coturnix. At this website <https://www.google.com/search?source=univ&tbm=isch&q=lavender+coturnix+quail&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjhsuzDocDqAhUMTawKHSrDCZoQ7Al6BAgKEDk&biw=1366&bih=657> showing photos of the "Lavender" color form variant of the apparently popular caged birds, the right hand member of the pair at top left and the single large photo near center of row two most closely match the two birds I found. I have yet to locate the neighbor who lost them, but am still checking. I've re-attached my pic for anyone who'd like to compare them with the prototypes on the website.

Subject: [birders] Avian Refugees - follow-up



Thanks to Jack, Alice, and Jochen for their input! The consensus is that those birds are NOT Mourning Doves, but rather some variety of domesticated quail or partridge. I'm convinced of my error, and am now trying to determine just what species they were and whose coop they may have escaped from.



Considering their tameness and vulnerability, having chosen a spot so near a well-traveled road, I returned to the spot last evening with a net and cage thinking I'd capture them and see if I could find their owner. Not surprisingly, they were gone.



In the case that I learn more, I'll post my findings.

Spotted often at Gallup. A group of 12(?) mallard hens. One slightly bigger
than the rest. When moving to new spot, she leads; when others are
browsing, she follows; when others sit, she remains standing. What am I
looking at?

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 7:00 PM. The site will open at 6:30 PM so you can
log on early. See the Zoom invitation at the end of this email for details
to log into the program.

"Birding Colombia - A Birding Bonanza" will be the program presented by OAS
President Don Burlett. Colombia boasts having the largest list of birds for
any country in the world. With over 1800 species, it has it all. Habitats
range from the Amazon River and the "jungle" to the Andes mountains. One
trip won't allow you to see them all but several trips will let you see
many of them. This presentation covers two trips to Colombia and will
provide a taste of what birding there is like.

We'll mute everyone during the presentation and then have time for
questions afterwards. Everyone is invited to attend, you do not have to be
a member to participate.
Phil Bugosh, Oakland Audubon Society

in search of better cover. I backed off and they regrouped in the little
depression that I'm guessing is a semblance of their recently abandoned
nursery, from which they were most likely forcibly evicted by a gust of wind
during yesterday's thunderstorm, a veritable hurricane for the little waifs.

When I snapped the pic, there was no doubt in my mind but that they were a
pair of young morning doves. I still believe them to be that, but when I
cropped and enlarged their photo to better share it, I saw details that had
earlier escaped me -- the color difference between the two birds, the
shortness of the beaks, and the light colored centerlines on most of the
body feathers. I assume the color difference is an artifact of the lighting
at the time, and am guessing that the unexpected beak and feather features
are simply indicators of immaturity, but never having looked this closely at
a recently fledged morning dove, I'm not certain of that appraisal.

Other opinions will be welcomed!

Subject: [birders] photos from 2065 S Wagner (Knox church) needed
If anyone has a decent photo of a bird or butterfly (or other grassland species) seen at 2065 S. Wagner (Knox Church), I wonder if those could be shared with me. I am trying to make a case to the church leadership to consider not mowing the fields in future years and some visual proof of increased bird and/or butterfly life might make the case stronger. I know there are some good photographers out there.

Thank you

Mississippi State University has a site at Mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu that you may find useful. It photos ID’s moths from North America and can be sorted by state or region as well. Bugguide.net is another resource that moth photographers links with for additional photos and info. Peterson Field Guide to Moths by David Beadle & Seabrooke Leckie is a reasonably compact reference book.

Subject: [birders] any members of Knox Presbyterian church on our list?
I am trying to interest the Knox church on Wagner (south of Scio Church, Lodi Twp) in maintaining their no-mow (or at least, reduced-mow) COVID strategy in future years, due to the fact that birds have been flourishing in the absence of mowing: white-eyed vireo, nesting meadowlarks, bobolink, savannah and field sparrows, killdeer and others (including some we may have failed to spot).

I have written the church but it would be helpful if someone who was a member or employee (not a trespasser!) might approach them as well. If there is anyone on the list in that position, I would like to be in touch.

Thank you.

Subject: Re: [birders] OT : Butterfly and Moth identification
I’m also just starting on butterflies, using two books:

Butterflies Through Binoculars - The East - Jeffrey Glassburg Well done, but includes many species not found here.
Michigan Butterflies & Skippers Mogens Nielsen Only includes species that have been seen in Michigan, so it is less overwhelming.

Subject: [birders] Re: ADMIN: please stop hunting thread
Hey Mary and all,
Just reaching out to explain this - I think I was respectful and fair in my countering a really false statement. As a hunter myself, I found his statement about hunters was offensive and I felt obliged to correct him. There is nothing out of hand. I wish people posting to the birders group list would stick to science, the truth, and be respectful of everyone - *even if you do not agree with something*. We should be entitled to express our opinions in a fair and respectful way when we see/hear something that is blatantly wrong. Folks correct each other all the time on this list - just because you may not agree with this particular issue doesn’t mean it’s not a valid one.

Sincerely,
Jackie

There is no reason whatsoever why we cannot discuss how to remove house sparrows from nest sites and your yard.  They are an invasive species and kill native birds at an alarming rate.

They are a major threat to all cavity nesting native species.  There are repeating sparrow traps, and nest box trap  that can be purchased or made, and used to trap the sparrows.  Then you must euthanize the adult sparrows.

Love the conversation, but I will interject: the statement about hunters (even bird hunters) is quite ignorant to the truth - bird hunters have contributed immensely to conservation by improving habitat. In my mind, there are several types of hunters, but do not dismiss them - they have actually contributed more dollars to conservation of land, water, and habitat than any other group of birders out there, and that is actually a fact.

Subject: [birders] Peregrine at UHMS Courtyard
We snuck out into the courtyard at lunchtime today.
There was a Peregrine Falcon on top of the hospital near where the nesting box used to be. It was calling repeatedly, so hard to miss!
If you were facing the adult hospital, it was to the right.
Another falcon that was never seen was somewhere behind the old Mott Hospital calling. They called to each other and the one on the building took off toward the Cancer Center.
I was thrilled to be able to share "our" falcons with my new technologist.
Does anyone know where they are nesting these days?

Thank you, Juliet, for your incisive and thoughtful suggestions.

The HOSPs nest next door near my neighbor's gutters, where they have nested
for years. You are very clear about what needs to be done, and I think my
neighbors could even be encouraged to be onboard, as long as they didn't
have to do any of the euthanizing. I will try to have a stronger stomach,
b/c given the alternative...well, really, there is no alternative.

Thanks for your guidance.
Kind regards and happy native birding!

There is no reason whatsoever why we cannot discuss how to remove house

They are a major threat to all cavity nesting native species. There are
repeating sparrow traps, and nest box trap that can be purchased or made,
and used to trap the sparrows. Then you must euthanize the adult sparrows.
Repeating traps are best utilized in winter when chipmunks are hibernating,
since chipmunks will often get to the bait, millet, before the sparrows
find it. Any and all House Sparrow nests should be removed from
bird houses. They cannot in any circumstances be allowed to breed in
housing we provide. It is unethical to do so. If they find their own nest
hole, that cannot be prevented in all cases, but if I put up a bird house,
I must be 100% sure that I am not providing House Sparrow nest habitat.
Monitor daily, if necessary, and take out messy nests that fill the whole
box, which is a House Sparrow nest. Here is a discussion of the
different nest types/bird species you may find in a nest box.
https://michiganbluebirds.org/resources/other-cavity-nesting-birds The
Michigan Bluebird site is a great resource for how to deal with House
Sparrows, as well.
I have said many times, if I had a dollar for every dead tree swallow or
bluebird I found killed in the nest box with a House Sparrow nest built on
top of the corpse, I would be a wealthy person.
Take out the House Sparrows, or take down your bird houses. Another option
is to convert them to House Wren/Chickadee size holes. 1 1/4 inch holes
are for these smaller species. House Sparrows, Eastern Bluebirds and Tree
Swallows need at least 1 1/2 inch entry holes.
All the best, stay well, stay safe and good birding,
Juliet Berger

I’m aware they do this Thomas and I know what the remedy is but the removal of non-native species is now (in my opinion) a greater threat than habitat destruction or anything else.  No restoration project of any sort can take place anywhere without a perpetual commitment to monitoring and action.  This seems true for plants and animals.  It’s especially troubling when I see reports of it spreading by well-meaning folks actually trying to do some good.  It’s the human-caused misery I disagree with.  https://www.treeswallowprojects.com/spardam.html

The link is an interesting article about birds (in this case, hummers) and
what they see for color. Also, if you remember Harold Eyster, he’s a

Bird songs have been a passion of mine since I was a teenager, and it is
nice to see what appears to be an increasing interest in this aspect of
birding. Last month, I created several videos for the on-line bird banding
4th grade program for the E.L. Johnson Nature Center, and one of those was

I was happy to notice that my Nikon Coolpix did a fairly good job of
picking up some of the bird songs that were close by, which is more
convenient to use than my "professional" recording setup that includes a
Marantz PMD-222, and a Sennheiser ME-55 shotgun microphone.

Subject: Re: [birders] New eBird hotspots for local preserves
Just a bit of clarification: The Morris-Reichert Nature Preserve is a
242-acre preserve northwest of Gregory in Livingston County. It is owned
by the Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy.

The Reichert Nature Preserve, a 92-acre preserve near Little Portage Lake
on the Washtenaw/Livingston County border, is owned by Legacy Land
Conservancy. It is posted by Legacy Land Conservancy as having access with
written permission only. There appears to be no hotspot on eBird for the
Reichert Nature Preserve.

Dr. Reichert and his wife (and Dr. & Mrs. Morris) were very generous.

Subject: [birders] New eBird hotspots for local preserves
Hello everyone,

Just wanted to remind folks of several local preserves that could use more
ebird data! Creekshead, Beckwith, and Sharon Hills (not Sharon Hollow!) all
have ebird hotspots and we really need people to bird them so we can get
some good data.

Recently we also created a new hotspot for the Morris-Reichert preserve as
well, which did not have one before, so we *really *need data for that
hotspot.

If you live near any of those preserves, please do ebird them!! You can
visit this page for an overview of where each preserve is located to see
which one is closest to you.
https://legacylandconservancy.org/preserves/legacy-preserves/

Here are the hotspots:
Morris-Reichert (aka Reichert) <https://ebird.org/hotspot/L2888172>
Sharon Hills <https://ebird.org/hotspot/L3024314>
Beckwith <https://ebird.org/hotspot/L9918395>
Creekshead <https://ebird.org/hotspot/L11099258>

Disclaimer: I work for Legacy Land Conservancy, who owns these preserves,
and it makes my job and my coworkers' job *way *easier to have good ebird
data to work from when writing management plans and applying for grants :)

Good birding,
Alice

Subject: [birders] Comic relief
I have really been enjoying people’s descriptions and tales of great birds in water features!

We do a simple version… Just making a puddle in our driveway! It draws birds like Orioles, Cedar waxwings, bluebirds, indigo Buntings… But yesterday was the first time we had ever seen a hawk splashing around and enjoying it! Highly cropped photos, taken with my phone camera, through binoculars, through the window. It was fun to watch!

Subject: Re: [birders] Petersburg SGA recording
John,

Thanks for the link to Sibley's site, which I was not aware of. I don't
know if it is due to the difference in recording conditions and/or
equipment, but your recording sounds higher pitched than mine. And the call
in question of Baltimore Orioles is often more nasal than my recording.

Subject: Re: [birders] Petersburg SGA recording
One of the first things that comes to my mind in hearing these is a shorebird. Up where I am (Southern edge of boreal forest in Saskatchewan) it is not uncommon to see Greater Yellowlegs perched onto a pine tree in the open forest.

If your calls were more involved, I would almost guess Upland Sandpiper.

I'm wondering if anybody with a more experienced ear can identify the birds here. Two trading the same phrase. Recorded near the road at the westernmost Lulu Rd. pull-out at Petersburg SGA. I couldn't locate either of them, though they sounded closeby. Habitat: lots of scrub thickets, largely Russian olive, I think, with aspens / cottonwoods.

Once there, it hurried past its mother, with her quickly following, without a sound from either one, and both disappeared from sight. Could mom tell the difference between nine and ten?

Spotted lanternfly isn’t here yet (it’s in western Pennsylvania), but it is expected to spread to us, and when it does, it may be a huge problem for grape and other fruit growers and for tree nurseries. Farmers in infested areas are using a lot more insecticide to try to protect their trees and crops.

These insects will certainly compete with birds for wild fruit. The species main host plant is the invasive tree Ailanthus altissima, aka tree-of-heaven, also introduced from Asia, an aggressive invader that supports no bugs for birds. Removing tree-of-heaven greatly slows down the spread of spotted lanternfly. Unfortunately this tree is itself very tough to control, and pretty much requires herbicide to kill it (if you just cut it down, its root system sends of hundreds of new shoots).

Info on the insect:

Thanks for any information.

I’ve never been there, but I’m quick with the Google :-) I found this map of Sharonville State Game Area. It looks like only the north side of Tucker Lake is private land, and the other sides are all part of the Game Area, including the area between Tucker Lake and Sharon Valley Rd.:

Subject: [birders] Can mallard hens count the number of their offspring?


On a pleasant spring evening, I was walking along a well-trod, black-topped
pathway in a park behind my apartment building. A short distance ahead, I
spotted a mallard hen standing in the middle of it. What an odd place, I
thought, for a duck to be just “standing around.” There was a small pond on
one side of her and knee-high green stuff on the other. Then nine recently
hatched little ones scrambled up the embankment, hurried past her, and
disappeared into the tall stuff. Mom stayed rooted in place, and seemed to
be quite at ease in doing so. I stood in place as well, and waited. A full
minute must have gone by when I glanced into the pond and spotted a little
one paddling towards the shore. Once there, it hurried past its mother,
with her quickly following, without a sound from either one, and both
disappeared from sight. Could mom tell the difference between nine and ten?

Increased by nine at 10:05 this morning. There was no mistaking the sounds today as “mom” stayed in the box long after her regular morning “breakfast and bathroom” run. By 6:30, there were distinct peeping sounds and the hen was actively communicating with the hatchlings. Around 9:45, she hopped into the entrance/exit and stayed there for fifteen minutes just assessing the area outside. Then she hopped into the water beneath the box and called to the kids. One by one, over a two minute span, they each did the belly-flop about six feet into the river below. Despite the fact the river is home to Snapping turtles, Blue Herons, Pike and “Muskies”, she took them right into deep water and over to the other side. All nine (plus the hen) are tucked up under overhanging brush probably napping after the biggest morning of their lives. I’ll get around to analyzing that camera failure and checking out/cleaning out the nest box in the next few days for those interested. I also promised the folks at “Duck Hut” some feedback too. Happy birthday and happy birding.

Birders and friends,

Washtenaw Audubon’s in person programs at the Botanical Gardens are on hold until the University allows gatherings to take place. To view our online Zoom program tonight, you will need access to an internet-capable computer, phone, or similar device. You do not have to be a Washtenaw Audubon member to view this program, though we would welcome your membership to help support our environmental programs.
We may add more online programs for July and August, which will be announced on our web page, Facebook page, and on the Birders email listserv.

Wednesday, June 17, 7:30pm (an online Zoom program)

Florida Lifers: Checkmarks on Your Life List

Join popular Washtenaw Audubon speaker and noted humorist Don Chalfant tonight in an illustrated talk on the birding delights of his second home, Florida. Don has spent his winters in Florida pursuing and photographing some of the more unlikely species to show up there, as well as more common species such as Painted Bunting, Limpkin, Crested Caracara, and Swallow-tailed Kite. Besides his spectacular photos, Don will doubtless have a number of droll anecdotes to relate. Don Chalfant is a resident of Ann Arbor and New Smyrna Beach, a retired teacher, an avid photographer, and an ace birder.

Subject: [birders] Florida Lifers is Washtenaw Audubon online program Wednesday, June 17, 7:30pm, all invited
Birders and friends,

Washtenaw Audubon’s in person programs at the Botanical Gardens are on hold until the University allows gatherings to take place. To view our online Zoom programs, you will need access to an internet-capable computer, phone, or similar device. An announcement of the web address to view the program will be on our web site, Facebook page, and on the Birders email list a few days before the program.
We may also add more online programs for July and August, which will be announced on the same internet platforms.

Wednesday, June 17, 7:30pm (an online Zoom program)

Florida Lifers: Checkmarks on Your Life List

Join popular Washtenaw Audubon speaker and noted humorist Don Chalfant in an illustrated talk on the birding delights of his second home, Florida. Don has spent his winters in Florida pursuing and photographing some of the more unlikely species to show up there, as well as more common species such as Painted Bunting, Limpkin, Crested Caracara, and Swallow-tailed Kite. Besides his spectacular photos, Don will doubtless have a number of droll anecdotes to relate. Don Chalfant is a resident of Ann Arbor and New Smyrna Beach, a retired teacher, an avid photographer, and an ace birder.
To view the program, go to:

Subject: Re: [birders] More cuckoos and moths?
As with many species Gypsy moths and cuckoos exhibit regular population fluctuations. Cuckoo population levels are one factor affecting Gypsy moths. They are the only species that regularly feed on hairy caterpillars. There is interesting Information from USDA northern research station.

Established populations of GM behind the invasion exhibit episodes of major outbreak that tend to vary periodically with 5 to 10 years between outbreaks. These outbreak cycles are believed to be caused by numerical interactions between the gypsy moth and two pathogens that are specific to them: a nucleopolyhedrosis virus (NPV) and the fungal pathogen Entomophaga maimaiga. The impact of the latter pathogen is strongly influenced by moisture levels during the early summer when gypsy moth larvae are developing and are susceptible to the fungus. Evidence indicates that the strength of the periodicity of gypsy moth outbreaks is related to populations of white-footed mice, which consume large fractions of GM pupae during periods of low density; mouse populations are in turn influenced by the size of acorn mast crops, which vary among years in a synchronous fashion across the region. Synchrony in mast seeding is thus believed to ultimately contribute to observed patterns of synchrony of gypsy moth outbreaks across large regions.

Subject: Re: [birders] More cuckoos and moths?
This whole thread is interesting to me in that I’ve been birding the same patch for 22 years and have encountered this bird just once – in September of 2003.  A week or so ago I heard what sounded like a  yellow-billed calling off and on for about 10 minutes, but I didn’t log it to eBird because I could not get my binos on it and it’s such a rare bird for my patch. Funny now to see these birds being reported all over the place.

Makes me wonder if somehow these “extra Cuckoos” and cool moths are rebound results of depressed human activity from Covid-19?

Both sides expand and contract as pressure is reduced by the other. Who knows, a biased mind, will usually finds what it wants to!

> With many parts of the country still under different stages of shutdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, interest in at-home birding has reached a new high. But poorer neighborhoods often harbor less quality green space and a lower diversity of birds—and systemic change to bridge these gaps will require a collective effort.Keep reading

Starting in the 1990s, queer birders began responding to discrimination and safety concerns by creating spaces of their own to enjoy the outdoors.

Subject: [birders] Re: More cuckoos and moths?






Agreed Deaver and...although I’m noticing more “exercising outdoors-people”, it stands to reason there are generally an increased number of folks taking interest in the outdoors lately for all reasons.  All good for the environment I hope.  Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised that the shooting range on Inwood road ceased fire... while I was there anyway.  I wonder if they just have shorter Sunday hours or what but it made the afternoon a lot nicer than the perpetual intermittent sounds of gunfire amidst the peace and quiet.  Maybe they could adopt an hour on-and-off cycle like shooting on odd hours and off on the evens?  Reminded me of a sign I saw on one of the trails saying the park receives 25,000 complaints a year about the gunfire but we just “have to put up with it” as it’s part of the area.  I think that the sign should instead encourage people to write the politicians and petition for changes to benefit the outdoors.

Another similar species is the Yellow-collared Scape Moth.

Or perhaps humans have had more time to explore the outside world lately? The more we explore, the more we may find. Still COVID related but in a more positive way.

Sounds like (as a group), we’ve nailed it!  Confirmation and consensus is a good thing.  With all the extra interest in diversity and compassion, I wonder if there are special bird groups who lean more toward birding by ear?  My eyes are still pretty good but in the future, birding by ear may be a bigger part of my life.  Hmmm, interesting diversion...what fails first as we age, eyes or ears?  Then...what’s easier to enhance or restore with technology?  I guess avid birders are prepared for both eventualities.

I have had an increased number of Yellow-billed Cuckoos calling and seen in my yard and neighborhood this year. (And greatly enjoying it!) I was attributing their increased number to the increased presence of the Gypsy Moth Caterpillars, as Juliet mentioned.
I'm in Big Rapids, MI or NE Newaygo County

Thanks for all the responses folks.  After review, I’m also going with the Yellow-Billed Cuckoo.  Bill’s “Grebe” option was looked into but the mystery bird was in the nature area well away from Grebe habitat.  Plus, the calls themselves and the secretive nature of the Cuckoo fit perfectly with the way it behaved.  Attached Is the longer version of the recording.  You can ignore the sound of the Pilleated Woodpecker at the end which was my wife fiddling with her phone using some free app which purports to identify birds by their calls.  Also of note at the park yesterday were Towhees, Kingbirds, Bluebirds and others.  Very cool to learn we are in a “Cuckoo Glut” this year!  Lots of people out on the trails but most seem to be exercising instead of stopping to soak it all in and let nature work her magic.  Go out, relax, explore and enjoy.  The weather is wonderful!

Subject: Re: [birders] Audio from Stony Creek
There are lots more cuckoos this year in Washtenaw, as we are having a
moderately heavy Gypsy Moth infestation. Stinchfield Woods is partially
denuded on the South Side along N. Territorial. Other areas are affected
too.
Cuckoos breed super fast, and their numbers increase dramatically in a
caterpillar infestation year. Also, there may be some migration into new
infestation areas.

Subject: Re: [birders] Wood Duck Info Needed
This year is the first time that we've had all 4 wood duck boxes
occupied by wood ducks... and cameras in all 4 boxes. Our experience
was the same as yours: hatch over the course of a day... we thought we
heard chirping, too. They'll jump tomorrow morning and hightail it
outta there. Last year my husband got up early to sit on our upstairs
deck. Mom seemed to be aware of him. He finally came in the house,
came downstairs, and looked out again... and they were gone! Just that
fast! He was bummed. This year, we finally caught one of the fledges
in action. Mom suddenly stretched her neck way way out. Dropped down
and called for them to jump. It was 11:42am. The ones we missed were
mostly a bit earlier in the morning.

I’ve got a pretty good log going for when the hen comes and goes but I am not going to take a chance on trying to effect a repair during the times when she is away. Anyway, it’s not a total failure as the camera is still returning the audio but it’s somewhat compromised. I believe hatchlings will jump out within about 24 hours of hatching. My question is whether anyone knows if they are capable of “peeping” within that first 24 hours? The timing is right and I THINK I may have heard light “peeps” this morning between six and eight AM and nothing since. Maybe they’re resting and will leap out tomorrow morning? Or I may have been hearing other birds in the distance over the noisy camera audio channel. Thoughts?

During the years when I was collecting the remains of the peregrine kills
from the UM Bell Tower, cuckoos were one of the most common birds found.
They must be quite common but they are secretive, so people don't often see
them. The only thing I could figure was that they must fly over the canopy
and be easy for the peregrines to catch. (The other most common remains
were woodcock in the spring, and virginia and sora rails).

Sounds like a Yellow-billed Cuckoo to me. Been hearing one at Wolcott Mill
Metropark during the last week too.

Just recorded this and it’s new to me.  After calling from one location, it moved without us noticing to another spot 100 yards away and resumed calling.  Sounds like pretty good-sized lungs to me.

Subject: [birders] Wood Duck Info Needed






Wouldn’t you know it...the little nest box cam that’s been running reliably for about three years failed about (what I think) is three days before the eggs hatch!  I’ve got a pretty good log going for when the hen comes and goes but I am not going to take a chance on trying to effect a repair during the times when she is away.  Anyway, it’s not a total failure as the camera is still returning the audio but it’s somewhat compromised.  I believe hatchlings will jump out within about 24 hours of hatching.  My question is whether anyone knows if they are capable of “peeping” within that first 24 hours?  The timing is right and I THINK I may have heard light “peeps” this morning between  six and eight AM and nothing since.  Maybe they’re resting and will leap out tomorrow morning?  Or I may have been hearing other birds in the distance over the noisy camera audio channel.  Thoughts?

Last month, a U.S. District Court struck down the basis for the Trump administration’s approach to oil and gas leasing efforts, ruling that they broke the law when they sold specific leases on public lands in Greater Sage-Grouse habitat in Wyoming and Montana.

Subject: [birders] bobolink in Lodi twp


This afternoon and yesterday as well, I heard a bobolink singing persistently in long grass that’s resulted from a no-mow response to COVID. Heard by Knox Episcopal Church, Lodi Twp. (Wagner Road) I’ve never heard a bobolink in this location. Savannah sparrows, common yellowthroats and yellow warblers as well. Barn and rough-winged swallows.

Subject: [birders] Spring Bird Banding blog updated
Birders and Banders,

It was a challenging spring season for bird banding, but we managed to get
through it safely, and with a near-normal number of days covered, even
though we had to reduce the number of nets we opened because of the high
water levels in the park. I have updated my blog with details and photo
highlights from the last two banding days in the first week of June. Go to
this page:

http://mihummingbirdguy.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html

..then scroll down the page to the June entries.
