Maybe the fact that the number of insects in the world has been depleted by pesticides has made it imperative for them to hunt insects in the daytime, too, just to survive.
I have a pair of nesting song sparrows that seemingly spent the entire day yesterday just picking insects off of only my deck to feed their brood nearby. I haven’t sprayed my deck.

Birders,

 

Have any of you noted nighthawks flying in the day at this time of year?  

 

We were birding today at the Riverbend Preserve, in Washtenaw County ( but almost into Lenawee County, just a mile or so north of Clinton) and we noted at least 7 nighthawks flying fairly high overhead at 11:30 a.m.   Birds were in the air, above the River Raisin.

 

I got a good look seeing the white patches on the underside of the wings,  and the pointed wings were unmistakable.  We saw them  once, they flew out of sight, but then we saw them again.

We were surprised to see them this time of day, but the morning (surprise, surprise) was quite overcast and I wondered if this could be part of the reason.  Like a barred owl calling at 2:00 pm on a gray day?

 

Ebird questioned my observation, asking for more info than what I put in initially, and that ebird questioning made me wonder even more  about this experience of seeing a group of nighthawks in a late morning flight.

 

Thanks for any thoughts, or sharings or your experiences.

 

Faye Stoner and Ron Gamble

 

Also heard a black-billed cuckoo calling many times there from the parking lot,( and while on the field trail) and then we did  see two cuckoos, one chasing the other.

It just so happens that I saw a Night Hawk today at 4pm on the south-west
side of Michigan. I had just stepped outside and saw it long enough for a
confident ID before the trees got in the way. Don't know if there were
others before I came outside. But I suspected that I caught a quick
glimpse of one in the same area a half-hour earlier (not recorded).
So far no response from eBird.

Subject: [birders] Nighthawks at 11:15 a.m. .................and black-billed cuckoo at Riverbend Preserve
Birders,



Have any of you noted nighthawks flying in the day at this time of year?



We were birding today at the Riverbend Preserve, in Washtenaw County ( but
almost into Lenawee County, just a mile or so north of Clinton) and we noted
at least 7 nighthawks flying fairly high overhead at 11:30 a.m. Birds were
in the air, above the River Raisin.



I got a good look seeing the white patches on the underside of the wings,
and the pointed wings were unmistakable. We saw them once, they flew out
of sight, but then we saw them again.

We were surprised to see them this time of day, but the morning (surprise,
surprise) was quite overcast and I wondered if this could be part of the
reason. Like a barred owl calling at 2:00 pm on a gray day?



Ebird questioned my observation, asking for more info than what I put in
initially, and that ebird questioning made me wonder even more about this
experience of seeing a group of nighthawks in a late morning flight.



Thanks for any thoughts, or sharings or your experiences.



Faye Stoner and Ron Gamble



Also heard a black-billed cuckoo calling many times there from the parking
lot,( and while on the field trail) and then we did see two cuckoos, one
chasing the other.

If you own Zeiss equipment, be aware that they are in the process of moving their North American repair facility from NY to KY and repairs are significantly delayed. I sent my Victory bins in after reviewing their website instructions and talking on the phone to a repair rep. Neither the website nor the rep informed me of the move and the delays. They received the bins on May 9 and in an email on May 23 they told me they were sending the bins to Germany for repair and that the process would take 8-10 weeks.

All of them were really great especially Huntington Beach.

We saw/photographed many different birds including- Painted Bunting, Tricolored Heron, Snowy Egret,
Brown Pelican, American Oystercatcher, etc, etc.


I have attached a pic of the Oystercatcher.

Arthur,

I saw the message and nice photos both times you sent them.

And Fred, just an update on hummingbird activity. A female that I banded at
Lake St. Clair Metropark yesterday was carrying significant fat, and
weighed more than 4 grams. Normal weight of non-migrant females is 3.2 to
3.6, so she was clearly a migrant or just arrived breeder. It is a reminder
that not all individuals of a species are necessarily at the same point in
their annual cycle.

Subject: Re: [birders] Reminder to please use eBird Hotspots when submitting data
All,


The issue of hot spots and their use has been a minor irritant for a while now. And at times more than that. I've made standardizing my own personal locations nomenclature a priority since I tend to bird using ten-minute point counts at specific locations.


I break down my geographic units at a quarter section, and name them accordingly (SW = southwest, NW= northwest,etc.). To this I add the township name and section- hence observations are provided as Scio Sec. 07, SW, along with a short descriptor to make it unique- Baker Road. Any observations I make with Section 7 of Scio Twp regardless of the road I'm on can be assigned without having to guess to that specific section at a minimum. Finally I start the entire location with the county- Washtenaw Baker Road Scio Sec. 07 SW, or Washtenaw 2450 Baker Road, Scio Sec. 07 NW for a more precise location name. This eliminates any guessing on my part, and I hope on the part of

potential users if the data.


As others have already suggested. Not everyone chooses to be accurate when plotting a location for their observations.There have even been instances where I have given someone the location of an unusual bird and later found that the observation type was not used correctly. The individual was conducting a count at a specific spot and later it the bird I reported to him and he went to see was included- the location was more than a mile away!


In another instance I had been conducting observations at a small lake for over ten years. These data were being input to eBird as I had time. Someone later turned the lake into a hot spot after two visits there and then didn't do anything else with the site. What do I do now? Subsume my standardized observational data set under the hot spot or maintain my own personal location? Guess what I elected to do.


The potential use of eBird data to aid location conservation and management decisions is great. But only if the data can be tied to geographical locations of interest. I recognize recreational birders are not scientists, but somehow they need to be made aware that providing precise locations or the route taken on a traveling count are a godsend to someone wanting to make use of their observations in the future.


The need to standardize the hot spot nomenclature has not been discussed in this manner for a long time and it is nice to see it brought to the list-serve members. The only other time I have spoken about it was years ago when Juliet asked for everyone to use the hot spots to enter their observations. I mentioned at that time I would use those whenever possible, not to the exclusion of my own personal locations when it make sense to protect a data set.


Best, Dick

Sunday May 26, 2019, 8:00am-12:00pm. Oak Openings Metropark. Leader: Dan
Gertiser(<dangertiser...>)
After the rush of spring migration we will slow down and enjoy one of the
area’s premier birding spots. Lark Sparrow, Blue Grosbeak and Summer
Tanagers will be a few of the target species we will look for as we explore
this gem of the Toledo Metropark system. Breeding birds should be in full
song so we can all enjoy birding by ear. Meet at the nature center. Plan on
having mosquito repellant, and take precautions for ticks. There are modern
bathroom facilities at the nature center. 4139 Girdham Rd, Swanton, OH 43558

Please see our website (http://www.oaklandaudubon.org) for details about
upcoming field trips, meetings and the Young Birder's Club. Contact the
field trip leaders if you have additional questions. You do not have to be
a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you,

Subject: [birders] Boundaries of eBird hotspots
It does seem like the area of an eBird hotspot is often vague. For
instance, for the Chelsea SGA 4 mile lake spot, is the stretch of Lima
Center road that goes through private land east of the game area part of
it? For the Dexter B2B trail spot, is the extension of the B2B to the
Dexter cemetery part of it?

Do we report any bird we saw when we were in that area, even if the bird
was not? For instance, if I am at a nature preserve, do the Sandhill
Cranes that are in the field beside it get included? I think that most
birders would include it, but for a parks survey maybe it shouldn't be.

We could probably improve the usefulness of eBird reports if we included
a comment about where in the hotspot the bird was for notable sightings,
but it's easy to be lazy about that.

Thanks Bruce.  Mine is a big shallow bowl with a cover with holes through it.  Easy to clean, refill and not subject to acting hinky.  Not super attractive to the human eye but very functional.  It’s worked for ten years or more.  The plastic is getting faded and brittle but it still works with a little care.  I have others but they are all of that same type after having tried everything else.

Cool beans.  Thanks Allen.  Meanwhile, I’ll keep looking for the males.  Maybe when females DO visit, they come less frequently but stay longer on each visit to “top-off” their tanks?

Females should be starting to incubate eggs now, though some are likely still building nests. This will result in less frequent feeder visits.

Not sure what you use for feeders, but my M-in-law has had that happen a few times. She had one of the new, craft feeders, which are quite attractive, but I found they easily develop an air lock which prevents the nectar from flowing into the feeders. When I tipped it up to burp it the nectar flowed again and birds returned. You might look at that situation if your feeder is apt to function like that.

Fred,

Females should be starting to incubate eggs now, though some are likely
still building nests. This will result in less frequent feeder visits.
Another drop in activity occurs once the young are older and nearly ready
to fledge as the females are very busy feeding them. Also in mid-summer,
additional nectar sources become available in the wild, so hummers tend to
disperse a bit at that time too.

I want to thank everyone for the birding locations in SC.


We went to Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet and Brookgreen Gardens.


All of them were really great especially Huntington Beach.


We saw/photographed many different birds including- Painted Bunting, Tricolored Heron, Snowy Egret,
Brown Pelican, American Oystercatcher, etc, etc.


I have attached some of the photos.


Thank You.

For another example, I have been working on locating eBird reports of Rufous Hummingbirds in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, many of which I've banded over the past couple of decades. In many cases I have the advantage of having the exact address in my files, which some birders might not save. What I am finding is that these personal locations are often clustered in an area around the homes where the birds were reported (up to 2-dozen observers), but typically only a very few (one or two) will place their marker ON the home. In a few cases, these personal locations are a mile away from the actual location! Sometimes, locations are consolidated into a hotspot that is named something like "Rufous Hummingbird stakeout", which provides little information and used repeatedly within the same state. My preference would be to at least include the township in the location name. And lastly, I can tell you from personal experience, that locations that are the name of a road only drives us bonkers. What state, county, or township is it in? What section of the road, which can often run for many miles (and cross county lines) is included in the location?

Caleb

As far as you know, is there any chance that Ebird might one day allow
mother-daughter relation for spots and hot spots? I sometimes wish I could
do a point count in a specific location of an area (example a 10 mn count
on the boardwalk of Kensington metro park) that would still count for the
hotspot of the area.

I know there was talks about it a few years ago. Any inside information
that you might have?

Bill and others,

Just my own 2 cents on this issue of hotspots and "precise" locations. I
agree that a hotspot makes more sense as a frequently visited location, and
will often be a trail or loop that is a mile or more in length. Trying to
enter GPS coordinates for every single bird within that location, for me,
falls into the "annoying" category mentioned by someone else. For another
example, I have been working on locating eBird reports of Rufous
Hummingbirds in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, many of which I've banded over
the past couple of decades. In many cases I have the advantage of having
the exact address in my files, which some birders might not save. What I am
finding is that these personal locations are often clustered in an area
around the homes where the birds were reported (up to 2-dozen observers),
but typically only a very few (one or two) will place their marker ON the
home. In a few cases, these personal locations are a mile away from the
actual location! Sometimes, locations are consolidated into a hotspot that
is named something like "Rufous Hummingbird stakeout", which provides
little information and used repeatedly within the same state. My preference
would be to at least include the township in the location name. And lastly,
I can tell you from personal experience, that locations that are the name
of a road only drives us bonkers. What state, county, or township is it in?
What section of the road, which can often run for many miles (and cross

I agree with your post. In fact, I thought that individual sightings with accurate locations determined hotspots. I haven't used ebird and rare bird alerts much, but when I went to AZ in February I wanted to know where to find the White-throated Thrush. There weren't many specifics, just Proctor Rd, Madera Canyon. I relied on the birders I encountered when I arrived to point me in the right direction. When I reported my sighting I used the GPS coordinates and a specific description of the area so other birders might not waste time in the wrong area. AZ local Ebird reps contacted me and wanted me to use the hotspot. I respectfully requested a reason why. I didn't get an answer and so I never changed it.

If a hotspot accurately describes where you are, that's fine, but many--in fact, I think, most--cover large areas that include a variety of habitat, leaving the record fuzzy as to exactly where the bird was and what its environment was. A hotspot doesn't even have a defined center or a defined boundary!
If I were doing research, I know I would want every sighting tied to as exact a geographic location as possible. I'd much rather sift,sort, group and split that geodata myself rather than have it done for me by other people who can't know what I need to do with it.
To me, the problem with the hotspot concept is that anyone and everyone can declare a hotspot based on any criteria whatsoever or none at all. I'd far rather let the data show me where the hotspots are rather than have arbitrarily declared hotspots show me where the data is.

If a hotspot accurately describes where you are, that's fine, but many--in

exact a geographic location as possible. I'd much rather sift,sort, group
and split that geodata myself rather than have it done for me by other
people who can't know what I need to do with it.

To me, the problem with the hotspot concept is that anyone and everyone can
declare a hotspot based on any criteria whatsoever or none at all. I'd far
rather let the data show me where the hotspots are rather than have
arbitrarily declared hotspots show me where the data is.

Just had our first ever orchard oriole at our jelly feeder. We've been in this house for over 15 years and have never seen one here.  We also have barred owls calling in our adjacent woods. Spotted one about a week ago. Haven't seen again, but hear them daily. Denise in Howell

I tried greasing my birdhouse poles many years ago. Waste of time.
Grease attracts every piece of flying debris, dust, etc, out there. In
no time at all, poles were not even the tiniest bit "greasy".
Stovepipe-type baffles, however, work great. If you're on a fixed
budget, you can try improvising with the larger plastic pots that
plants come in. I lost a metal-mesh peanut feeder once to a mother
raccoon, so am suspicious that a similarly persistent raccoon might

Subject: Re: [birders] Reminder to please use eBird Hotspots when submitting data
Probably use the most specific without totally annoying yourself.

For ex., when I go to Pelee, I can select a hotspot for all of Pt. Pelee,
or by trail. If I do the latter, that means I have to create multiple
lists if I do multiple trails in a day. That falls into the 'totally
annoying' category, so I usually just select the more general hotspot. If
I were just doing one trail, I would probably select that more specific
hotspot.

Can you give some specific examples, Bill? Perhaps local birders in your
area can weigh in on which one is the best to use.

For instance, here in Washtenaw we have both "Vreeland Rd" and "Superior
Twp Roads" ; the former is JUST for Vreeland Road, which often has very
specific and unusual species. The latter is for birding any surrounding
roads in the Superior Twp area that isn't Vreeland. (someone from Washtenaw
correct me if I'm wrong on that front...)

I would expect that the most commonly used hotspot is the one you should
select.

I believe you also have the option to suggest to ebird that two hotspots be
merged. I'll see if I can dig up the steps for that when I get home.

Sunday May 26, 2019, 8:00am-12:00pm. Oak Openings Metropark. Leader: Dan
Gertiser(<dangertiser...>)
After the rush of spring migration we will slow down and enjoy one of the
area’s premier birding spots. Lark Sparrow, Blue Grosbeak and Summer
Tanagers will be a few of the target species we will look for as we explore
this gem of the Toledo Metropark system. Breeding birds should be in full
song so we can all enjoy birding by ear. Plan on having mosquito repellant,
and take precautions for ticks. Meet at the Nature Center. There are modern
bathroom facilities at the nature center. 4139 Girdham Rd, Swanton, OH 43558

Please see our website (http://www.oaklandaudubon.org) for details about
upcoming field trips, meetings and the Young Birder's Club. Contact the
field trip leaders if you have additional questions. You do not have to be
a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you,

Subject: Re: [birders] Reminder to please use eBird Hotspots when submitting data
Any advice on how to select from what is often a confusing morass of similarly named, undescribed, undelineated and potentially overlapping hotspots? There isn't a lack of hotspots - there is a shortage of hotspot specificity, hence the metasticizing number of them.

Cheers,
Bill Butler

Many thanks to the folks who offered up good suggestions and comments about keeping the furry critters off bird feeders. Since I had a section of 4"PVC pipe looking to be recycledd into a 2nd life, PVC pipe over 1" steel pipe it was. So far it has frustrated the Grey Squirrels, but is still untested by raccoons.

Very "too cool" experience at my home this past Friday:    While working in my home office looked out the window to see a First ever yard bird Blackburnian Warbler facing me straight away at a  mere 20 feet perched on a Spruce Tree branch.  Then to my utter surprise a Ruby Throated Hummer started buzzing the Warbler in a horizonal motion back and forth for at least a couple comical minutes as the Blackburnian's head followed the Hummer's back and forth motion side to side to side, LOL.  Finally they both just flew away.  Gotta love Nature, OMG. Best of Regards,  Michael Wells, LIC

All migratory birds are federally protected. This includes harassment of birds. If your behavior is altering the behavior of the bird, you should back off and stop what you are doing. Generally playing a recording is orders of magnitude worse than pishing as far as making the bird upset.

Subject: [birders] Magee & Howard Marshes Field Trip Report, May 19, 2019
Today's Magee & Howard Marshes Field Trip was awesome producing no big
numbers but especially desirable species.

Let's start with Magee. A Yellow-Billed Cuckoo did wheelies in a nearby
tree. A Great Horned Owlet peered down at human visitors taking pictures.
The silence of Empidonax Flycatchers kept their identity a secret. Our
binoculars settled on a close-up of a Swainson's Thrush followed minutes
later by a Grey-Cheeked Thrush. A pair of Philadelphia Vireos traveled
together. A trio of Yellow-Bellied Flycatcher sightings was a treat. A
stunning male Prothonotary Warbler posed for our cameras, and a much less
distinctive female Prothonotary snatched moss from a log and transported
into her nesting hole. A female MOURNING WARBLER was particularly shy,
popping in and out of view atop downed timber at water's edge, but a male
CONNECTICUT WARBLER gave us generous glimpses, also at water's edge on
downed timber and singing on occasion.

Threatening grey clouds loomed in the distance as we traveled to Howard
Marsh. Scanning the first two ponds, we got quick looks at Ruddy Ducks,
Dunlin (in breeding plumage), Blue-Winged Teal, Least Sandpiper, and more.
Then the heavens opened up, delivering a torrent of rain, debris, and wind
and forcing us to quit.

Special thanks to Cathy and Dea who kept checklists. Dea also gave great
explanations of features that characterized this and that bird including
comparison views of similar species. Everyone spotted birds and helped
fellow birders find them. That almost everyone got glimpses of both
Mourning and Connecticut made this trip especially memorable!

In the list below, the capital letter F indicates FEW or ONE birder in our
group saw or heard the bird. Click on the Magee link below for photos of
select species. (For those who went on today's trip, please send me a
message telling me to share the list with you,)

Birders,
Today I see several more sightings, including one from LeFurge Preserve on
Prospect, where the eBirder says, responded to playback. Pics and Audio.
Clay-colored Sparrow, a rare bird in our part of the state, trying to breed
at LeFurge. Again, no playback for breeding birds, please!!, and that can
be any bird at this time of year.

Subject: [birders] Hudson Mills field trip report, May 18, 2019
A dozen and a half birders endured a rainy start at Hudson Mills this
morning, then sailed through the morning enjoying Michigan's colorful,
feathered summer residents. We got great looks at a stunning male Baltimore
Oriole through a rain-drenched scope. A Eastern Bluebird came into view but
was soggy and dark due to the wet and overcast. More than a couple Indigo
Buntings perched low or foraged on the ground. We got glimpses of a Scarlet
Tanager pair through the branches and leaves leading up into the canopy.
Not only did we see a Prothonotary Warbler perched on downed timber in the
Huron River, we watched two Prothonotaries chase each other at water's
edge. Norka located a Grey-Cheeked Thrush low in the brush lining the bike
path. A lone Osprey and Trumpeter Swan were flyovers. A pack of Cedar
Waxwings stripped a flowering tree of its pink buds.

Warblers darted to and fro in the highest treetops. A Blue-Winged Warbler
and Northern Parula ventured closer to terra firma to give us great views.
Yellow Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Yellow-Throated Vireos, Northern
Flickers, and many more species were loud, insistent, and boisterous but
never came into view. Bummer! As we got into our cars, a Red-Tailed Hawk
flew by, pursued by several smaller birds.

We all benefited from the auditory abilities of Juliet and Norka -- they
and several others alerted the group to great birds. Several in our birding
group repeatedly relocated the Prothonotary that popped in and out of view
and helped us all find him. Thanks to Norka for making our eBird checklist
and others for adding to it. Much gratitude to Dan, Dave, and others for
helping me carry my scope and positioning it in front of me. We had a great
morning -- let's do this again for fall warblers in early September!

I've added an H (for Heard only) to the eBird checklist below for birds
that I think only one person saw only or the group heard only.

Subject: [birders] OT: Contact Wearers
Recently, I went to the eye doctor to update my prescription for presbyopia. I was intending on getting regular bi-focal glasses  because I am tired of wearing my readers 90% of the time. My doctor asked if I would like to try contacts, so that I could have my distant vision as well as reading vision without having to use glasses. This sounded wonderful. When we put them in, I figured they were just practice lenses, without prescription, because my vision was worse, near and far. I do not need a prescription for distance, but I do need a prescription for reading. The doctor had me try the multi-focal lenses for a week. She sent me home with daily wear and monthly wear. Neither of them helped me and I just couldn't get used to the blur, especially during prime birding time and the need for quick distance focus and clarity.

I went back for a re-fitting. This time we are trying Mono-vision by leaving one contact out and wearing one (multi-focal lense) in the non-dominant eye for reading. Supposedly my brain will figure out how to focus. I've been doing a little reading on the subject and it appears I may never get rid of the blur entirely, for either near or far, even with tweaking the prescription strength. I'm not sure I am willing to sacrifice clarity and detail. I want to be able to see details, like whether a bird has an eye line or not - like I did without contacts.

Has anyone tried contacts for presbyopia only? Mono-vision? Actual bi-focal lenses? What are your experiences and thoughts?
Thanks,
Suzanne in Big Rapids

Good point in requesting broader support for advertising against the practice.  In the “old days”, it took special equipment.  Nowadays, anyone with a smartphone can pull up a website and play the calls.  It’s just too easy.  In fact, the people who have those websites should educate about the potential for misuse.

Subject: [birders] Pine Siskin breeding
I had Pine Siskins breeding within the city limits of Ann Arbor a few years
back.

One or two adults were being seen at the feeders regularly; then one day a
group of at least 5 showed up and at least two of them were seen begging to
be fed. This happened only once; I presume that the birds had just fledged
and the family group then moved away from our area.

Alice, thank you for the details of fledgling vs. juvenile Pine Siskins. I now know what to look for. You are absolutely correct that the first photo was a House Finch. When I was typing, my mind said 'finch' & my fingers typed 'sparrow'. Probably because there are so many House Sparrows in my yard!

Happy Spring, everyone!

Subject: Re: [birders] Pine Siskins

Having worked with an inordinate amount of fledgling house sparrows at the Bird Center of Washtenaw, I can tell you that neither of those are fledgling house sparrows. The chest is far too streaky.

The first one looks a bit like a fledgling House Finch. The beak seems too chunky and dark for a Siskin. But as I said above, it's not a fledgling house sparrow. Google "fledgling house sparrow" for some pictures.

With regards to the second one: I think that is a Siskin, but an adult or older juvenile. If it was a fledgling it would not have the yellow wing bars, and its beak would be considerably paler. Its feathers would overall be short and stubby. In short it would look like an ugly teenager! You can google "fledgling pine siskin" to get an idea of what I mean.

Subject: Re: [birders] Pine Siskins
Having worked with an inordinate amount of fledgling house sparrows at the
Bird Center of Washtenaw, I can tell you that neither of those are
fledgling house sparrows. The chest is far too streaky.

The first one looks a bit like a fledgling House Finch. The beak seems too
chunky and dark for a Siskin. But as I said above, it's not a fledgling
house sparrow. Google "fledgling house sparrow" for some pictures.

With regards to the second one: I think that is a Siskin, but an adult or
older juvenile. If it was a fledgling it would not have the yellow wing
bars, and its beak would be considerably paler. Its feathers would overall
be short and stubby. In short it would look like an ugly teenager! You can
google "fledgling pine siskin" to get an idea of what I mean.

Subject: [birders] Final reminder: WAS Field Trip to Magee Marsh this Sunday, May 19
The annual Washtenaw Audubon Society field trip to Magee Marsh will be on
Sunday, May 19. 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! (The park-and-ride
lot is on the southwest corner of the US-23 and Plymouth Road
intersection.)

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.

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 to Ann Arbor in late afternoon, possibly making a
stop at nearby Howard Marsh, 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.

The Marsh should be at peak for late male birds, female birds generally,
and flycatchers. The crowd from the festival should be long gone.

The forecast for Sunday, May 19, is a warm start in the high 60s, reaching
a balmy 80 at 1 pm, beautiful south winds (shuttling birds into Magee), and
a threat of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Bring a hat, insect repellent,
poncho or rain jacket, and sunscreen. Magee Marsh is boardwalk so athletic
shoes/sneakers should be fine.

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 19.

Subject: [birders] Please do not play bird song tapes with breeding species
Dear Birders and Friends,
It has come to my attention that some birders have been observed playing
tapes of a bird's song in order to bring the bird closer to obtain better
photos. Breeding birds are stressed by this type of activity and it may
cause them to abandon their breeding territory.

It is absolutely unconscionable and unethical to do so with a rare species,
such as the Prairie Warbler, back again at Pinckney Rec. Area, Hankerd Rd.
in Washtenaw. An egregious example of this was observed recently at the
Hankerd Rd. location. It is against the ABA Code of Ethics, and will be
reported to the Department of Natural Resources. Prairie Warbler is a
State listed species in Michigan, and has legal protection, not only under
the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but under Michigan's Endangered Species laws.
Please consider the birds' well being over your own pleasure. Not using
playback is the most respectful of the birds and the only ethical decision
with breeding birds
.
And for those of us who cherish birds and would never knowing harm them,
thank you very much for all you do to support birds, and our natural world.
All the best,
Juliet Berger
Washtenaw Audubon Society

Subject: Re: [birders] Pine Siskins
Thank you, Anna, Mark, & Janet for the comments/info! I have two photos I'd like to share. The first I believe is a juvenile House Sparrow, due to it's larger bill. Janet, would the downy wisps on a Siskin look similar to this pic? The second is of a Pine Siskin which might have been young one. He was wet, which may have disguised downy wisps.

Thanks again,
Terry

They do occasionally breed here so keep your eyes out for any young being brought to the feeder. They will be the same size but may have shorter tails and little downy wisps on their heads.

but it was quite distinctive.

Subject: [birders] What keeps birds where they are...



and yet allows other bird’s ranges to expand or shift?  When gmilatz reported the Yellow-Headed Blackbird, it reminded me that I’d not seen one since I was a kid in 1969 on our elementary school playground on a stand of CatTails on a spring-flooded baseball field in St. Clair Shores.  I’m also regularly reminded of our dearth of Mockingbirds.  When I’ve been to other parts of the country that seem to have similar weather and habitat, I often wonder what other elements must be at work to keep some species to the “same old stomping grounds” while others “like House Finches” seem better able to capitalize on changes perhaps to the detriment of other indigenous species.  Interesting stuff.

Subject: [birders] Lovely Surprise
We had a lovely surprise as the day finished yesterday. We had two new yard birds bathing and having a grand time in the top level of our water feature - gorgeous, male Blackburnian warbler and a stunning, Cape May warbler. They had joined the chickadees and titmice. Right after they departed, a flicker landed on our porch rail and proceeded to drum a little (drumroll, please?) then flew up to the double suet feeder that was no more than 4 feet away from me. I was so stunned, I was motionless.

> - Comments: "Brilliant orange-red head, throat and belly. Dark eye line, back and wings. Black bill like a Phoebe, not as thick as a scarlet tanager. Saw it at the Field pond off Turner Trail. Watched for 15 minutes from bridge at pond looking in direction of Visitor Center. Bird was sitting on a branch near the water and would swoop down into grass by the water and return to perch. Eastern Kingbird was close to this bird and the Kingbird was a lot bigger. This bird was striking in color - a mix of orange and red and very bright - especially in the sun. I know this bird does not belong in Michigan. Before I had binoculars on it, I thought it was a scarlet tanager based on its color but then I saw the eye line and bill along with its smaller size. Unfortunately, I have no photo - just had a cell phone and was too far away to get a picture with any detail."

Subject: [birders] Final reminder: WAS Field Trip to Hudson Mills, Sat., May 18, 7:45 am
Here’s a final reminder for the WAS-sponsored tour of spring migrants at
Hudson Mills Metropark on Saturday, May 18. <x-apple-data-detectors://0> We
will meet at 7:45 am <x-apple-data-detectors://1> 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.

We are in search of spring migrants and summer residents such as Scarlet
Tanager, Wood thrush, Nashville, Chestnut-sided and Nashvlle warblers. We
always look for the park's summer residents such as Yellow-throated vireo,
Blue-winged warbler, Brown Thrasher, Eastern Bluebirds, Prothonotary
warbler, and more.

The weather forecast for Saturday, May 18 <x-apple-data-detectors://3>, is
rain ending by 8 am with overcast skies and warmup to almost 60 at 11 am
<x-apple-data-detectors://4>. Be prepared for wet, dewy trails, grass, and
fields. Bring insect repellent just in case. Please be prepared for 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
<x-apple-data-detectors://5>. 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 MillsMetropark. 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.

The park's website is at http://www.metroparks.com/ and mouse down on the
"Parks" link, choosing "Hudson Mills."

See you this Saturday, May 18 at 7:45 am <x-apple-data-detectors://7> sharp.
We will bird until the bird activity slows down, usually a little before
noon. 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.

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


PS. Save the date Sunday, May 19 <x-apple-data-detectors://9>, leaving Ann
Arbor at 5:50 am through late afternoon <x-apple-data-detectors://10>, for
our field trip to MAGEE MARSH in NW Ohio. Details to come.

Subject: Re: [birders] Tick preventer help - caution
Thanks, Sandie, for the Consumer Reports article. Having read it, however,
I would prefer to find another preventive, esp. for ticks.

What else works for you all? I'm going to the vet tomorrow, so will find
out what she recommends for felines. Although I will not use a pesticide
on us or kitties, I will still appreciate your suggestions and ideas.

Thank you,
Lisa Lava-Kellar

Catbirds and jelly I’ve seen several years ago for the first time.  Let me know when you see Robins using the jelly as dipping sauce for earthworms.  That happens too!

We used a pole to mount the feeder then got a section of 6” or 8” round metal duct pipe and put it around the pole. It has to be fairly large so the raccoons can’t climb it. The pvc might be slippery enough to work.

I am using a 6" diameter stove pipe on the 2 feeders that are stationary.
Works like a charm for raccoons & squirrels! The feeders are mounted on a

Subject: Re: [birders] feeder defenses
I have. Raccoons were able to scale the 4" pvc when I used it as a post. (Vaseline didn't help either.) So I set a 1.5" pvc post and placed a three-foot length of 4" pvc over that post. The larger pipe dangles from a bolt through the 1.5" and 4" at the top. The raccoons crawl up the narrow post but can't navigate the transition to the larger pipe... it isn't firmly set at the bottom, and they can't get a firm grip.
However, I have a platform feeder on top, and turkeys have established here the last couple years. They raid the feeder daily. (And I think they're responsible for kicking up the mulch around the trees in the yard this year, too.)

Subject: Re: [birders] Tick preventer help - caution
I have a permethrin sprayed outfit I wear when gardening.  I also use a number of different repellents from the lemon/eucalyptis to skinsosoft to 40% Deet.
They all seem to work.  Wearing nothing - doesn't work.  I don't use the lint roller because if you've been outside, you will be covered with tiny dark things - bits of leaves, seeds, you name it.
Here is a great article from Consumer Reports:
https://www.consumerreports.org/insect-repellent/how-to-use-permethrin-on-clothing-safely/

Best wishes,Sandie

Has anyone tried mounting feeders on a length of vertical 4" PVC pipe? I'm speculating that it will be shimmy-proof and confound the squirrels and racoons.

Subject: Re: [birders] female Red-winged BB's
Thanks Allen, for the comment. Did you see them in numbers or was it an idiosyncratic female?

Several acres of my property are marshy thickets that seems to be prime breeding territory for a number (couple dozen?) of RWBB's and that provides a reservoir for an almost constant presence at the feeders. Yet these past 9 springs I've yet to see a female on the property earlier than April 18th. By late May their presence is as regular and noticeable as the males. Its possible the females are being demurre and dsicrete and I'm overlooking them, but that seems unlikely to me.

Subject: RE: [birders] Tick preventer help - caution
I haven’t hear about anyone recommending permethrin. Guess I should read more carefully. I’d like to find something that would be effective for humans.

Bravecto for flea and tick prevention and Intercepter Plus for heartworm. Hard to prove a negative (my dog takes these things and does not have either ticks or heartworm – Chance or lack of exposure or the medicine – how to prove) but I’ll stick with them.



Glad to hear another well-informed person agrees with my uncle as well as I always have. I actually had two uncles who were vets. They were in practice together in Monroe for years until the older uncle retired and the younger uncle moved to Tecumseh. Another fun storey: both their last names stared with Kn but one name pronounced the K and the other one had a SILENT K as in knife. You could always tell which person had met which vet first by the way they pronounced the last name.

Sally,



HA! I got a chuckle out of the flea/tick collar thing.



My Dad was a vet too and I’ve had dogs, and as far as collars go; I basically agree with your uncle! We didn’t have all the new-fangled drugs that are available now however. (A lot of the monthly treatments given by mouth now are at least helpful for flea and heartworm prevention. I can’t directly speak to efficacy of tick prevention for these.)



Su,

I would be EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS about taking advice posted in THIS forum about “helpful” things for cats: Keep in mind permethrin (very good for tick prevention on humans, and I’m find that true), is reportedly VERY TOXIC to cats (as opposed to dogs). It’s not beyond thinking that some cat-hater might promote its use…

I followed your link to explore the alternatives. I’m not convinced however. My uncle was a vet and while he did not have access to the new products like Bravecto (he retired many years ago), he always said a flea and tick COLLAR was find if it happened to land on the flea or tick and squashed it to death. Otherwise, they were useless.

Saturday May 18, 2019, 8:00am-12:00pm. Tawas State Park. Leader: Dan
Gertiser (<dangertiser...>)
Explore one of the greatest spots to enjoy spring migration. We will spend
the morning exploring the tip, scanning the beaches for shorebirds and then
working our way north thru the campground. After lunch we will head to
Tuttle Marsh, a good spot to hear Sora and American Bitterns. If we are
lucky we may even get to see one. Mosquitos should not be a problem, but
plan on cooler temperatures next to the lake. There are modern bathroom
facilities at Tawas Point. Meet in the last parking lot at the south end of
the park. This will be close to the bathhouse, and just to the east of the
light house. A state recreation passport is required.

Please see our website (http://www.oaklandaudubon.org) for details about
upcoming field trips, meetings and the Young Birder's Club. Contact the
field trip leaders if you have additional questions. You do not have to be
a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you,

Subject: [birders] North country fist hummer!! and a phoebe
Up north of Rogers City for a few days on the shores of Lake Huron at
Hammond Bay. I put up my hummer feeder last time I was here a week or more
ago in a place where the squirrels don't get to it (hanging from the edge of
the gutters) and hoped they would find it if they arrived early.

WELL, my Mother's Day was complete while I was speaking on the phone to our
son in California when the first male hummer made at least three trips to
the feeder.

No orioles up here but the hummers are a regular feature.

Another regular friend is the phoebe that calls and calls and calls much of
the day. The neighbors are not too versed in bird calls and think the
FEE-BEE call of the Chickadee is a phoebe. Having a hard time convincing
them and have stopped trying lest I make enemies of my neighbors.

At about 4:00 this afternoon I watched a spectacular Red-headed Woodpecker
working the trees along the east edge of Cassidy Rd., about 150 feet north
of the prison (or whatever it is) entrance. Incidentally, they've cut down
dozens of large trees along the road north of the entrance.

There were also multiple small mixed flocks of warblers -- Northern Parula,
Black-throated Green and Am. Redstart were the most common -- and lots of
Yellow-throated Vireos on Cassidy, Roe, Boyce and Embury Rds. Embury also
produced multiple Scarlet Tanagers near the northernmost high hill on the
road.

Subject: Re: [birders] Re: Help to ID hovering raptor
I've had a couple votes for American Kestrel and a couple for Northern
Harrier, along with a shout-out for Merlin. No one suggested an Accipiter.
it comes down to a female Kestrel or an immature male Harrier. I saw a
similar Harrier over Trinkle Marsh Saturday, 5 miles from Pierce Lake GC
(Mike Bowen's photo of it is on the eBird checklist for the 11th). I'm
hoping I see it again at Pierce Lake.
Thank you for your assistance.

Subject: [birders] Is early birding better?
The conventional wisdom is that to get the best birds it is important to
be out really early. Whenever I have tried it, I have wondered why I
bothered. There have been too many times when the best flock of the day
showed up in early afternoon. What are your experiences?

My guess is that in the height of nesting season, when the birds are
paired up and on established territories, many birds sing a bit early in
the day, and then quiet down. During migration and when they are first
arriving on territory, they stay active much longer in the day. Since
most of my birding is during migration, I see them active all day.

In desert habitat, midday really is very quiet. I also think that birds
are more active late in the day on cloudy days than on sunny ones.

Subject: Re: [birders] Baltimore oriole maturation question
I think that when Sibley talks about first year birds, he means the almost one year old ones born last year. They are often drabber than older birds.

Subject: [birders] Baltimore oriole maturation question
I notice variations in the coloring of Baltimore orioles at my feeder that
suggest I'm seeing birds that Sibley describes as "drab 1st year" female or
"1st fall" male as well as what appear to be adult males and females. I'm
wondering how soon after the first appearance of the mature birds I might
expect to see the younger generation's appearance at my feeders. There are
what appear to be adult-size birds with much lighter head color than the
typical adult female that Sibley shows, but they seem to appear much sooner
than what I might expect for this year's new crop of young birds.

How long does it take for the youngsters to show up after the adults have
returned?

Subject: [birders] Hummingtime App?



Does anyone know of an IOS timer app that would work well here?  As I sit and watch a hummingbird (or Hummingbirds) come and go to my feeder one at a time,, I thought it would be cool to simply hit start and stop on my cell phone and let it capture actual time stamps in an exportable list.  As soon as the bird shows up, I hit start. When it leaves, I hit stop.  Over a couple hours (yes I can sit and watch that long), I thought it would be neat to see whether a pattern develops by plotting the values on a graph.  Do I have more than one bird?  Do they return more often on cool days?  More in the morning than at mid day?  How soon after sunrise and how long before sunset?  Cloudy days versus sunny days etc.

Subject: Re: [birders] Tick preventer help
Revolution gave my dog grand mall seizures that became progressively worse until her death five years later. She ended up on three daily drugs, Valium injection, and many trips to emergency. Her quality of life shifted from a dog who could clear a fence like a deer to a dog who had to have a sling to "go out" to do her business. I've heard the same about Bravecto. Proceed with caution.Lemongrass oil works.

Subject: [birders] Planning for the WAS Field Trip to Magee Marsh on Sunday, May 19
Please join me for a Washtenaw Audubon Society field trip to Magee Marsh
one week from today on Sunday, May 19. 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! (The park-and-ride lot is on the southwest corner of the US-23 and
Plymouth Road intersection.)

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 to Ann Arbor in late afternoon, possibly making a
stop at nearby Howard Marsh, 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.

The Marsh should be at peak for late male birds, female birds generally,
and flycatchers. The crowd from the festival should be long gone.

Looking at the long-range forecast for Sunday, May 19, I would suggest you
plan for a warm start in the low 60s, getting warmer with temperatures
reaching the mid 70s, beautiful south winds (coaxing birds to Magee), and
no threat of rain for a change. 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 next Sunday, May 19.

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: RE: [birders] Tick preventer help
I followed your link to explore the alternatives. I’m not convinced however. My uncle was a vet and while he did not have access to the new products like Bravecto (he retired many years ago), he always said a flea and tick COLLAR was find if it happened to land on the flea or tick and squashed it to death. Otherwise, they were useless.
