Subject: [birders] Rick Prum talk May 18
Rick Prum, a former Bird Division graduate student, now the Wiliam
Robertson Coe Professor of Ornithology at Yale University, will be coming
to Ann Arbor for a talk about his new book.

The book is called *The Evolution of Beauty*, and it is being published by
Doubleday on May 9th:

http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/224257/the-evolution-of-beauty-by-
richard-o-prum/?ref=PRH0B212F9BD9&aid=randohouseinc16134-20&linkid=
PRH0B212F9BD9&cdi=38918A22FD182683E0534FD66B0A528E

It's about sexual selection and sexual conflict in birds and people.

The book talk in Ann Arbor will be on May 18th, and it will be sponsored by
Nicola's Books and held at the Ann Arbor Public Library, Ann Arbor MI

Subject: [birders] Mississippi Kite. Manchester, MI. Washtenaw County
Greetings Birders,

Just before 1:00 pm this afternoon, during a light rain, I had an adult Mississippi Kite fly low over me and land in a tree not too far from where I was standing.

The Bird perched for just a few seconds, before being harassed by a group of blackbirds, thus, making the Kite fly off, heading west.

I was unable to relocate the bird, since I couldn't give chase right away, seeing I was filling a customer's propane tank at the time. I'm sure it would have been frowned upon have I jumped in the truck, dragging the 500 gallon tank behind me...

This was on Deer Valley, which is a private drive off of Herman Road, just out side of the village of Manchester, Michigan.

This is my earliest record for the handful of Mississippi Kite records I have seen here in Michigan (Washtenaw County) during the Spring in the last 30 years.

There are also 4-5 Northern Mockingbirds that frequent this small private road.

Subject: Re: [birders] Lyme Disease in Washtenaw County
I found a tick while exploring a bog last weekend. Just a dog tick, not a deer tick (dog ticks can't transfer Lyme disease, but both can still transmit other diseases), but still worth keeping an eye out.

Birders,

Washtenaw Audubon is again hosting its annual Tuesday Evening Birders
series of field trips.

*Each Tuesday in May (2, 9, 16, 23, 30)*, trip leaders will scout locations
in Washtenaw County and scan bird reports during the day, and then in the
evening take the group to where the action is. This is a carpool event with
multiple stops.

*Plan to meet at 6:00 PM at the Miller Road Park & Ride in Ann Arbor (at
Miller and M-14)*. Group departure from the parking site is at 6:15 PM so
do plan to arrive in plenty of time to form up carpools! Please bring
binoculars and scopes if you have them.

Dress for weather that will get cooler as sunset approaches. We almost
never cancel so it is best to show up at the departure site to see what the
plans are.

We will bird until sunset. Usually we are well away from our departure
site, so it is after sunset when we return to the parking site.

We hope to see you soon!

Yesterday evening, my neighbor, Bob, told me that he noticed what he thought was a Goldfinch at his suet feeder, then took a second look and realized the he had a Pine Warbler visiting his feeders.

I am home today, looked out and saw a "Goldfinch" at my suet feeder, thought, "wait", grabbed my binos and it was indeed a Pine Warbler!

My husband and I watched 13 Swifts enter the Chimney at Mack School in Ann
Arbor, this evening.
Not a huge number, but more than the 1 we saw last week. They are
arriving!!

Hooray for spring migration!

Haven't seen a one here (yet?) usually by now we do see a few anyhow. But then our feeder birds have been WAY down the past 2 years.
I guess too if we haven't seen any Common Redpolls or Pine Siskins by now--not likely we will anymore this season.

Over the last few days, the number of Purple Finches in and around

anything discussed before. Males outnumbered females for a while, and
now the reverse. We counted 18 around our feeders yesterday. Another
BWAudubon member counted 30 in her yard yesterday in a Port Huron

Subject: [birders] New bird
Morning birders!



FOY house wren is singing in the yard this morn. Yesterday, I had a brand new bird in my yard. I've always put out suet & had woodpeckers, but Friday, I had a different one. It's a male hairy woodpecker, but where they are shaded white, this bird is yellow! Not bright summer goldfinch yellow, but more their dullish winter color. It's still quite striking, because it's so different. Anyone have any ideas why this fellow is not following form with white?

Subject: Re: [birders] May 13 NAMC
I just wanted to clear up one item of possible confusion in Russell Emmons
post. The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) continues to be promoted and
maintained exclusively by the National Audubon Society. The basic unit for
reporting the results of CBCs is a circle of 7.5-miles radius. Each circle
has a coordinator or compiler who gathers individual results from all
participants into a single report that becomes part of the CBC database
that can be accessed online. It's true that individual CBC participants are
free to submit checklists of birds seen in their assigned areas to eBird,
but those are merely supplementary to the composite CBC reports.

Subject: RE: [birders] Turkey blocking traffic - Ypsilanti
Are you volunteering?? After years of employing a bunch of turkeys who also
were interesting to work with and watch grow to adulthood, I'm not sure one
can reason with turkeys. They tend to do what they want or what seems
expedient at the time. "Seemed like a good idea at the time, you know"

I've heard there has been a turkey standing in the middle of the road at
Textile and Whitaker in Ypsi. This has gone on for two or three or four
days. It was removed but it was back there again today blocking traffic. I
don't know if is wild or domestic, Tom or hen, countable or not.

Subject: [birders] Yellow-bellied sapsucker and more
Hello all,

My first post here in several years.
I had a chance to get out for a few hours this morning in Sterling
Heights. I had to navigate around sections of flooded path in the
Clinton River Park North. But I was able to find one Yellow-bellied
sapsucker, several each Downy and Hairy and a few Red-bellied
Woodpeckers. Dozens of LBJ's and four Wood ducks. Three males and one
female.

Surely someone who is used to working with a bunch of turkeys could reason

Subject: [birders] Turkey blocking traffic - Ypsilanti





I've heard there has been a turkey standing in the middle of the road at
Textile and Whitaker in Ypsi. This has gone on for two or three or four
days. It was removed but it was back there again today blocking traffic. I
don't know if is wild or domestic, Tom or hen, countable or not.

Subject: [birders] Yellow-bellied sapsucker and more
Hello all,

My first post here in several years.
I had a chance to get out for a few hours this morning in Sterling
Heights. I had to navigate around sections of flooded path in the
Clinton River Park North. But I was able to find one Yellow-bellied
sapsucker, several each Downy and Hairy and a few Red-bellied
Woodpeckers. Dozens of LBJ's and four Wood ducks. Three males and one
female.

Subject: Re: [birders] Turkey blocking traffic - Ypsilanti
We had the same experience in Ontario on the way to Canada last Friday.  Driving down the 402, we saw what I think was a female turkey standing alone by the side of the road at 2:30.  When we drove back  at 9:00 pm, she was still there. I don't know if she was looking for a lost flock or hitchhiking.

Subject: [birders] migrants
I stopped by Addison Watershed Reserve (northern edge of Oakland County) for a few minutes this morning. A pair of "Ring-Necked" Ducks, a Palm Warbler foraging across the ground, numerous Yellow-Rumped Warblers and Ruby-Crowned Kinglets. I much enjoyed the kinglet's clear, rollicking song. Don;t procrastinate on birding this spring as migration seems to have moved up a week or so.

Cheers,

Subject: Re: [birders] May 13 NAMC
Russ and I have been communicating about this and my question is this.
Is the citizen science part of this going to fade away and will this
just become another day to promote birding? Not that I have anything
against promoting birding, but if there is no effort to Not have
territories that do not overlap and cover as much area as possible,
how can this information be relied on as far as population trends. I
used to promote the Great Backyard Bird Count in my newspaper column
and I had many readers bring me their count sheets. Some of these
people were quite elderly. Then all of a sudden, their counts were
not "countable" because they could not entered in ebird. I was not
allowed to enter them on their behalf without opening up all new
accounts for them and at the same time, I could not enter them on my
account as I had not been there while they counted. So I gave up
promoting this. How do you tell someone their data is not important
enough because they don't have a computer?

Several of my regular participants in the annual St. Clair county NAMC have asked about this years count. I was sorry to inform them of the well said & comprehensive notification regards from Mike Petrucha & Jeff Buecking posted back in March on here. I've read Mike & Jeffs' summary and all the comments here by the other county compilers and I concur with all of them. I've held off making a comment waiting to hear if any thing else came up about it. It appears now that the "Global Big Day" is the successor to the 25 year old NAMC.

I remember the early years NAMC was a joint venture of the "International Migratory Bird Day"/ "Partners in Flight"/ "Aves de La Americas" --partners primarily with South America.

A guy named Jim Staz (sp) was national coordinator for the USA. Some years into the project Jim disappeared--went "AWOL" and the NAMC was divorced /orphaned from the parent organization. Shortly thereafter Michigan Audubon took the Michigan counties under its' wing totally, & Jeff & Mike were appointed Michigan coordinators.

More recently I've noted the "Great Backyard Bird Count" has become now just a few glorified days of E-bird submissions rather then the original well designed comprehensive fun activity it was originally.

I note now Nat'l. Audubon has allied itself with Cornell on the Christmas Bird Counts and I wonder what then that may hold in store for CBCs?


I'm also concerned now with the present administration threatening--and making cuts to wildlife projects of all types how that may bode for the USFWS breeding bird surveys etc. ---Well I just received my assignment packet with forms maps, instructions for the 4 BBS routes we do every year so I assume we are OK at least for this year!

relatively dry during our whole bird walk this morning. 8 brave souls came
out for the birding, and we were eventually rewarded for our efforts. We
heard the haunting song of the continuing Winter Wren at the second inlet
off Dow Prairie, which has been there for many weeks. We all had good looks
at a Towhee at the east end of Dow. And, though we chased several singing
Pine Warblers, we never managed to lay bins on one. They are there, folks,
though, no doubt. We happened upon a small migrant flock on the Ridge
Trail, with Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 2 Blue-headed Vireo, Yellow-rumped
Warblers, and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. We had some good looks at a
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in the Heathdale area.
This marks the fourth Thursday that rain has affected our field trip.
Let's hope for better weather next Thursday, and more warblers! I hope to
see many of you there, same time, same place, through the end of May.

Good Birding,

Juliet Berger

Subject: [birders] Turkey blocking traffic - Ypsilanti



I've heard there has been a turkey standing in the middle of the road at
Textile and Whitaker in Ypsi. This has gone on for two or three or four
days. It was removed but it was back there again today blocking traffic.
I don't know if is wild or domestic, Tom or hen, countable or not.

Subject: [birders] Tonight: Next Gen Ornithology is free Washtenaw Audubon program, Wednesday, 19 April, 7:30pm, all invited
Birdersand friends,

 

Pleasejoin us tonight for the free Washtenaw Audubon program below. You do not have to be amember to attend.


 
Wednesday,April 19, 7:30pm


 
21stCentury Science with 19th Century Specimens: Next Generation Ornithology at theUniversity of Michigan Museum of Zoology

 

TheUniversity of Michigan Museum of Zoology (UMMZ) houses over 200,000 specimensof birds, making it one of the most important ornithological researchcollections in the world. Many of the specimens were collected almost twocenturies ago. Today, technological developments such as genome sequencingenable scientists to use these specimens to unlock secrets of the past as wellas make predictions about the future of bird populations. Dr. Winger willdiscuss several exciting ongoing areas of research that draw insights from theUMMZ’s bird collections. He will also discuss how data from citizen scienceefforts, such as your contributions to eBird, interface powerfully withhistorical data from specimens to help us understand migratory birds’ past,present and future.

 

BenWinger is Assistant Professor and Curator of Birds in the University ofMichigan’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Museum ofZoology. Ben hails from northeast Ohio, where he became enthralled with avianmigration at an early age while birding along the south shore of Lake Erie. Hisinterest in birds led to a career of scientific research, focused on topicssuch as the evolution of bird migration and the process of speciation (how newspecies form). His fieldwork has taken him throughout the Western Hemisphere,particularly the Andes of Peru and Ecuador. He has a B.A. from CornellUniversity and a PhD from the University of Chicago.


 
Thisprogram is free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though wewould welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educationalactivities. Washtenaw Audubon programs are held at the U-M Matthaei BotanicalGardens, 1800 North Dixboro Rd., Ann Arbor.

 

Inaddition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and fieldtrips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program. For more information, goto www.washtenawaudubon.org


 
Hopeto see you there.

April 23, 2017 (Sunday) 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Walled Lake & Robert H. Long
Park. Leader: Mike Mencotti, email: <mmencotti9...>
This is an alternate trip for anyone who isn't going on the Berrien County
trip but still would like to take advantage of this prime early migration
weekend. Meet at the 13 mile road parking lot, south of Walled Lake
(Lakeshore Pavilion Park). We'll start at Walled Lake for waterfowl and
then move on to Robert H. Long Park for some passerines. If time permits,
we may go to Heritage Park as well. Southbound M-5 will be closed so plan
accordingly.

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

Rosann Kovalcik. Rosann currently serves on the Board of Michigan Audubon
as well as Detroit Audubon. She is a Master Gardener and has owned Wild
Birds Unlimited in Grosse Pointe Woods for 24 years

Her 45 minute power point presentation will teach you how to garden with
birds in mind, providing important stop-over habitat for migrant birds and
year-round habitat for resident birds. You'll learn the value of native
plants and how they relate to birds that visit your yard. Handouts of
native plants will be passed out.

As always, the program is open to the public; you need not be an Erie Shores
Birding Association member to attend. Our meetings are in room 201 of the
Life Science Building (denoted with 'L' on building exterior), on the second
floor of Monroe County Community College, 1555 South Raisinville Road,
Monroe, MI. Light refreshments will be served.

Hope to see you there!

Subject: Re: [birders] Purple Finches - Ann Arbor

Describing the color of a male Purple Finch as raspberry purple is confusing since raspberry is the color often ascribed to male House Finches. I don't really know what raspberry purple is anyway. The House Finch is well described as raspberry red. Since the male Purple Finch is really not at all red, the ID based on color is easy. The fact that the Purple Finch isn't really purple either does not confuse matters. Regarding color of males of the two species I'd put it this way:


male House Finch -- red (any shade)

male Purple Finch - not red (by any stretch)

The purple finch is more 'rotund' overall and the house finch relatively 'skinny'. Maybe check out some on line images to compare. Female purple obvious with white eye stripe. Males have no dark streaking on lower flanks and more raspberry purple all over the back and upper chest.

Subject: [birders] Pine Warbler
In my cursory glance out the window upon arriving home today, I noticed something not quite right about one of the Goldfinches on my deck. Took another look and found it was a Pine Warbler eating sunflower seed and suet. No wonder the Chipping Sparrow songs I've heard lately haven't sounded right either! Not sure why it didn't occur to me before. I don't think I've ever seen a Pine so close for so long. Nice sighting today.

Subject: [birders] Next Gen Ornithology at U-M is free Washtenaw Audubon program, Wednesday, 19 April, 7:30pm, all invited
Birders and friends,

Please join us for the free Washtenaw Audubon program below. You do not have to be a member to attend.

Wednesday, April 19, 7:30pm

21st Century Science with 19th Century Specimens: Next Generation Ornithology at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology

The University of Michigan Museum of Zoology (UMMZ) houses over 200,000 specimens of birds, making it one of the most important ornithological research collections in the world. Many of the specimens were collected almost two centuries ago. Today, technological developments such as genome sequencing enable scientists to use these specimens to unlock secrets of the past as well as make predictions about the future of bird populations. Dr. Winger will discuss several exciting ongoing areas of research that draw insights from the UMMZ’s bird collections. He will also discuss how data from citizen science efforts, such as your contributions to eBird, interface powerfully with historical data from specimens to help us understand migratory birds’ past, present and future.

Ben Winger is Assistant Professor and Curator of Birds in the University of Michigan’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Museum of Zoology. Ben hails from northeast Ohio, where he became enthralled with avian migration at an early age while birding along the south shore of Lake Erie. His interest in birds led to a career of scientific research, focused on topics such as the evolution of bird migration and the process of speciation (how new species form). His fieldwork has taken him throughout the Western Hemisphere, particularly the Andes of Peru and Ecuador. He has a B.A. from Cornell University and a PhD from the University of Chicago.

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, go to www.washtenawaudubon.org

Hope to see you there.

Subject: Re: [birders] Purple Finches - Ann Arbor
5 purple finches on my feeders yesterday, 3 male, 2 female. I have been
seeing less than 5 on and off over the past week or so and again this
morning. I'm in Loch Alpine near Dexter.

Hi Ron. Once you see purple finches I think the difference is fairly
obvious. I noticed yesterday that I could tell just from a distant
silhouette. The purple finch is more 'rotund' overall and the house finch
relatively 'skinny'. Maybe check out some on line images to compare. Female
purple obvious with white eye stripe. Males have no dark streaking on lower
flanks and more raspberry purple all over the back and upper chest.

Cheers,
John Mills

Actually the purple finch females are much clearer. The female purple
finch has a very definite white eye stripe, whereas a female house finch
doesn't. It's very obvious when you see one. The coloration of the males
is more wine-ish than brick red, but I prefer to see a female to be sure.
Unless the male is singing. The song is more melodious than a house finch.

Once you see a real PURPLE finch (as opposed to a house finch, that is)
you'll be amazed how different they are. The purple finches are MUCH more
colorful and darker than the house finches. Don't worry about figuring out
the females until you get a chance to see the real purple ones.



The male house finches are more reddish than purplish. The coloration is not

finches too because they are bird, after all, but the purple finches are so
much more spectacular. Not flashy like Baltimore orioles , to be sure, but

I'd say, if you're wondering if you have a purple finch or a house finch

hi, Jeffrey.
Unfortunately, this is not uncommon.  The swans must be nesting in the area and this is territorial behavior.  I see this every day with mute swans on my cove on Lake St. Clair. There are still geese nesting in the area (quite a few) but they are up where the swans can't reach them.  We still have about 10 Canada geese nests in the immediate area. Swans are awkward on land (especially rocky areas) and usually don't come out of the water.
I have even seen the Mute swans trying to drown the goslings, which their parents are helpless to prevent.Penny Swanson

At Gallup, from the shore by first parking lot, watched a swan chasing a goose, starting at the boat dock, going all the way to the Huron Pkwy bridge, and back again. The goose hopped up onto land, the swan stayed in the water, and backed away from the shore a bit. The goose jumped back into the water. That only reactivated whatever was stimulating the swan and this time he followed the goose onto the land. The goose must have "decided" he had had enough, turned around, and took a few steps towards the swan. The swan jumped back into the water, leaving the goose on the land. Was what I saw unusual in any way?

Local birders might like to know that the Michigan DNR has produced a whole set of “60 Second Snakes” videos on Michigan snakes. They are a good way to get familiar with our snakes, including the venomous and rare eastern massasauga rattlesnake (found in several SE Michigan natural areas, including the UM Botanic Gardens and Indian Springs Metropark). Here’s a page with all the videos.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAt8-P23ZJgvCQGGbnCtdUfRYbqiws-F6



Lots of confirmation that this is a northern watersnake. The Lake Erie watersnake is a subspecies of the northern found only on the islands of western Lake Erie (and maybe adjacent Ohio shoreline). The two can’t be told apart from a photo, but I’m pretty sure this is not the Lake Erie subspecies given the location.



These days watersnakes around the Great Lakes prey on the abundant populations of an exotic introduced fish, the round goby. The snakes are generalists that feed on whatever aquatic animals they can find, mainly small fish and amphibians, but young snakes also eat leeches, crayfish, and aquatic insects. Only very rarely reported to take birds. Raptors, gulls, herons and egrets feed on the snakes, especially on the young ones.



cheers!

Subject: Re: [birders] OT snake ID
Without getting into the ever changing, taxonomic thickets of subspecies, it looks typical for a young Northern Watersnake. As Northern Watersnakes age, they tend to gradually lose most or all of their patterning. The sparsity of vegetation and their quest for a meal and warm, sunny locations after a long winter means this is the time of the year they are most likely seen.

Cheers,
Bill Butler

Not sure if it's early for this or not, but a Ruby-crowned Kinglet was in my backyard this morning (my first ever yard bird Kinglet). It was unusual to see it along with several juncos and a female Red-winged Blackbird. A Chipping Sparrow visited on Wednesday.

This is why the DNR would like to get rid of Mute Swans in Michigan, It is now agains the law to re-hab them, but that clearly isn’t enough. Many members of the public love these swans, o it’s going to be hard to eliminate them. i believe Trumpeter Swans have much better behavior toward other water birds.

Subject: Re: [birders] Hummingbird
Penny,

Thanks for reporting your first hummingbird! I have already received about
15 reports this spring. I would encourage anyone finding a hummingbird
during April to let me know as I'm still keeping track of early reports (by
May 5 there are always hundreds present).

I have not been able to post these reports (and maps) to my website this
year due to unknown technical problems. I definitely need to update my
website, and perhaps move it to a different site (I have my own domain
name), but none of the "free" sources seem to offer what I need. Any advice
would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: [birders] OT: Jamaica birding
Hi,



I wanted to close the loop on my request from a couple months ago about birding in Jamaica. If anyone finds themselves looking for a guide I can highly recommend Wendy Lee (<wendylee.birding...>). Her flyer is attached. Our schedule was dictated by our cruise port schedule which meant we got off on quite a late start, but it was still a very successful outing with Wendy. We saw 43 species and 29 of them were life birds for me! We would have seen more if it wasn’t for our 11 am exit from the ship on a hot day!



Debbie

Subject: [birders] Injured loon - needs help
There is an injured loon on the north side of the Bird Island at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House. Hasn't dove or preened in half an hour if watching. The right wing definitely looks compromised.

Can anyone offer a hint on how to help this bird? Boat would be needed and experience capturing on water.

Thanks for any leads -

This is why the DNR would like to get rid of Mute Swans in Michigan, It is now agains the law to re-hab them, but that clearly isn’t enough. Many members of the public love these swans, o it’s going to be hard to eliminate them. i believe Trumpeter Swans have much better behavior toward other water birds.

That only reactivated whatever was stimulating the swan and this time he followed the goose onto the land. The goose must have "decided" he had had enough, turned around, and took a few steps towards the swan. The swan jumped back into the water, leaving the goose on the land.

Subject: [birders] Question re swainson's warbler - in Tennessee
Birders,

Just saw and heard my first swainson's warbler down in the Smoky Mountains but it didn't look just like the photos I've seen.

Most features were right on including the size, song, brown back, long sharp bill, and white belly. The only unexpected field marks were definite brown streaks down the flanks and some across the chest.

If anyone has experience with this species is this within the normal range of variation? Do swainson's warblers hybridize with any other species?

The other possibly odd thing was that it was singing from a very exposed perch over a creek when it is listed as being very skulky. It was singing from hidden locations for a while before going to the exposed branch so I'm not too concerned about that.

Thanks for any info people might have.

Rick

Subject: [birders] Swan chasing a goose
At Gallup, from the shore by first parking lot, watched a swan chasing a
goose, starting at the boat dock, going all the way to the Huron Pkwy
bridge, and back again. The goose hopped up onto land, the swan stayed in
the water, and backed away from the shore a bit. The goose jumped back into
the water. That only reactivated whatever was stimulating the swan and this
time he followed the goose onto the land. The goose must have "decided" he
had had enough, turned around, and took a few steps towards the swan. The
swan jumped back into the water, leaving the goose on the land. Was what I
saw unusual in any way?

Subject: [birders] more loon news
This morning I got a call from a man in Pontiac who has found another loon down. I referred him to the Howell Nature Center. But now I am concerned that there may be some disease out there which would be a concern to the DNR. So please keep you eyes open for downed loons, alive or dead, when you are out there birding. You should call the state pathology lab 517-336-5030 and report any you might find. Probably you will have to leave a detailed message. You can also call me for help 734-994-6287. Don’t email me unless it’s a dead one.
Thanks,

Subject: [birders] Today's Washtenaw Audubon Spring Migration Walk at the Arb
Birders and friends,
Despite a cold, gray and relatively bird free start to our walk this
morning, we managed to warm up to a good list of birds. We started at 8,
and after 9:30 a.m.the birds really became active. At the Pine Warbler
spot near the Peony Gardens, we all had great views of a singing male Pine
Warbler down relatively low. You know the birding is good when you stay in
the same spot on the path for about 1/2 hour and aren't tempted to move
on. That spot also showed both Kinglets, a Carolina Wren sprucing up an
old crow's nest for his own, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Yellow-rumped
Warbler and several obliging Hermit Thrushes, among others. We managed to
catch the hauntingly beautiful song of the Winter Wren on our way out, and
some of us got some decent looks at the elusive bird.
All in all, a respectable 44 species.
Our eBird checklist follows.
Join us next Thursday morning, same time, same location, and all Thursdays
through May.
Good birding,

Subject: [birders] Iceland Gull -- Grosse Pointe Farms
Friends:


The Iceland Gull is still hanging around in Grosse Pointe.


It can often be found sitting on the accretion just north of Pier Park in Grosse Pointe Farms, south of the border with Grosse Pointe Shores.


We occasionally get an Iceland Gull or two in winter, but I have never seen one on Lake St. Clair this late in the spring. The coloration of the bill most closely resembles that of a second-winter bird shown in the National Geographic field guide.


Good birding!

Subject: [birders] Off-topic: Detroit Bio-Blitz looking for volunteers!
Hey all,

Several other grad students and I will be volunteering at D-Town Farm
on *Saturday,
May 6th *to conduct a Bio-Blitz! We will be working with the Detroit Black
Community Food Security Network, an awesome non-profit, to engage the youth
of Detroit and D-Town Farm to explore the biodiversity of the farm.

A BioBlitz is a rapid biodiversity assessment that combines taxonomic
inventory, public outreach and science education. This year we expect the
participation of 80+ youth and we need your help! We need people who can
identify birds really well, along with insects, amphibians, plants, and
more.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form:

kReuIIYSWEbbD51csme7tSV-d9OySVCjaRcmOW9NQ/viewform (let me know if you
can't access it for some reason). Please fill it out by *April 17th*!

Subject: Re: [birders] Loon down
Sherri, that's so cool! Thanks for rescuing it and sharing your story!
(Kudos to the students for help, too!)

When I lived in Florida, I worked on boats a lot, and one time we found a
loon with a fish hook caught in its mouth and fishing line wrapped around
its bill. It made it easy to fish (pardon the pun) the bird out of the
water, because it couldn't open its bill, but once we cut the fishing wire,
all bets were off and we had to be really careful. One of my crew had a
pair of wire cutters on them, so we were able to cut the hook mostly out of
the way, but there was no hope of getting it all the way out. The poor bird
had to live the rest of its life with an accidental nose piercing.

Also, for anyone who is interested, Sherri's work is on exhibit
<http://stamps.umich.edu/news/sherri_smith_beyond_the_skies_at_art_environment_gallery>
in the Dana Natural Resource Building in downtown Ann Arbor...she's one of
the premiere textile and fabric artists in the country. They're beautiful
pieces, stop by and check them out for free!

Subject: [birders] Woodcock Walk--Update
Please join Washtenaw Audubon Society Saturday evening to see/hear displaying Woodcocks.  Details below, but additionally please wear footwear for wet/muddy conditions.
Please note the later start time of 8:15pm!

Woodcock Walk at Barton Nature Area
Saturday, April 15, 2017
08:15pmBarton Nature AreaThe American Woodcock, is known for its unusual flying pattern during courtship, which can be seen at dawn and dusk in the spring. Park at the Barton Dam lot on Huron River Drive, across the street and slightly north/upriver from Bird Road, and follow the trail around the building to the foot bridge. We will meet right on the other side (the dam side) of the bridge at 8:15PM. PLEASE NOTE: Do not park in the Barton Nature Area lot on Huron River Drive just after Main Street, or else you will have a LONG walk back to your car in the dark. Please wear good walking shoes and dress warmly. (The temperature will drop quickly at sunset.) Bring a small flashlight to assist you in exiting the park after the program ends. Plan on returning to your car around 9:30 if all goes well.Leader: Ray Stocking

Subject: [birders] Loon down

Monday evening I came home to find a phone message that there was alone down in the median strip of US 23 south of Ann Arbor at mile 33. I gathered up my loon catching and handling stuff and fought my way thru traffic toward where he was reported. I drove on the left lane and pulled over onto the wide shoulder when I spotted him in a bathtub sized body of water, in big trouble. I put on my goggles and heavy gloves and grabbed my net. I had him hauled out of the water and was working to make him go in a big cat carrier a minute later. I bet hardly anyone even saw it. Loons are big, strong and fierce, glad to put out your eyes with their long sharp beak. On my way home I realized that he was not only dirty but probably slightly oiled from the highway. My informant (great eyes to have noticed that he wasnt just a duck) that she saw him pulling himself thru the grass with his wings. He needed a bath. I recruited Keith Taylor and his wife Kris to help me and we headed off for one of the class rooms where I teach in the School of Art and Design. It has large sinks and doesnt run out of hot water.

It took all three of us to wash him, Kris immobilized the very dangerous head, Keith held his body and I washed various parts of him in turn. We needed occasional help from amazed students who were there working. He did not make the loon call, but made plenty of nasty remarks about us. Then we had to rinse him at length to make him waterproof again. You cant leave any trace of Dawn, detergent of rehabbers, in them. Their feathers , when detergent free, turn dry under running water. This is true of all birds, not just water birds. It was pretty dark when we took him out to Barton Pond and poured him out of the cat carrier. We could see his pretty long legs kicking off from the shallow bottom like a frog until he got into deeper water and could swim properly.

Why was he in the medium strip of the highway? We think the sudden hard rains of the day combined with on of those violent down drafts (like the one which pulled up big trees on Dexter St. a few years ago) forced him to the ground where he could be discovered by mere chance.

Hello everyone, I help to survey birds as a volunteer with Ann Arbor NAP (Natural Area Preservation). I wonder whether you might have an old scope around that you would consider donating to NAP for their use. Especially with waterfowl and shorebirds, it would make species identifications and counting numbers of individuals possible whereas otherwise they would go undetermined.  Depending on the scope, I might also be able to provide photographic documentation. The contact e-mail address is <NAPbirds...>  or you can give Juliet a call at 734-794-6627. Thanks for your attention. Craig Perdue

During my Detroit Edison day in the late 1980's, I used to see pheasant all
over the city limits in Detroit. Even then, there was a lot of vacant land
with tall grasses.

These days, I was surprised to see a male pheasant in 2016 at the Detroit
Thermal plant near Cogswell and Ecorse in Romulus, Michigan. There is a
large over grown field there, and I am sure it's living well there for the
moment.

Subject: [birders] Pheasants in Detroit
Here’s a link to the TV story about Detroit Audubon's pheasant walk:
https://www.clickondetroit.com/uniquely-detroit/pheasants

From my limited observations, I believe the pheasant population is down
considerably from years ago. Back around 1980, I used to regularly see
huge flocks of 50 to 100 birds in the area near Eastern Market. Those
fields were lost when a Pepsi bottling plant, and other facilities, were
built in that area.

Another great area for pheasants used to be the Detroit Riverfront. That
open expanse of land has since been wasted with a lot of new condos and
other construction. Detroit lost a great opportunity to rival Chicago with
a significant waterfront park. Instead, we got a small ribbon of concrete
and people extol what a great riverwalk we have. So much for the Detroit
Riverfront "Conservancy". Unfortunately, Detroit continues to have no
vision.

At least, for the pheasants benefit, Detroit continues to neglect its
neighborhoods. I just don't think that that offsets the loss of some major
field habitats where pheasants used to be numerous.

By the way, the TV story is much nicer than my commentary. ; )

I've been seeing pheasants in Detroit since the 1970s. I'm sure they
persist there at least partly because they're not hunted there.

Subject: RE: [birders] Improbable apparition
Grosse Pointe is about as urban as it can be with Detroit suburbs all around
them. They have quite a few pheasants running around there and I think it's
quite unlikely that a commercial breeding farm or a hunting sort of place
is within many miles of there.

Geddes Lake condo complex is not too different from Grosse Pointe in that it
is surrounded by lots of trees as well as lots of houses and developments
and near major highway with lots of traffic. I can't think of any hunting
type place anywhere near there. It's not too far from our place of business
on Plymouth Rd.

If you're interested in a better picture, Google Earth will give it to you.
Just type Geddes Lake Condominium into the search box and the next think you
know, you'll be looking at it from high above.

Sometimes these are escapees, not breeding wild. Are you anywhere near a
hunting sort of place?
Or there are people and places, some relatively small scale, that breed to
sell to "hunting" places.
You'd be surprised where some places are.

Maybe once a year or every other year, I will be fortunate enough to spot
this bitsy little bird on its busy way up the tree. Today was the day! As
luck would have it, I was just about to sit down at my desk by the window
(binoculars hanging on the chair back) when it began its trip up the tree
about 10 feet from the window. Busy little fellow looking for some early
bugs. Hope he found some.

Subject: [birders] Ann Arbor's Breeding Bird Survey
Hello Ann Arbor Area Birders,

This is a friendly reminder for the Breeding Bird Survey Kick-off and Training this Thursday evening, April 13th, from 7-8:30 p.m. The training will take place at the Natural Area Preservation Office (3875 E Huron River Dr, see map here<https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ann+Arbor+Natural+Area+Preservation/@42.2657673,-83.6828542,17.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x67f6d8a3be793a3b!8m2!3d42.2655313!4d-83.6836338>). Our office is in an old home with a circle driveway, with one-way signs. There is a detour due to construction on the small bridge just to the west of our office, so we will have to enter from the east, off Hogback Road/Huron River Drive.
If you are interested in volunteering, please call or email to register as soon as possible. If you decide at the last minute to come, please do! You will be welcome.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you,

Good birding,

Juliet

April 11, 2017 (Tuesday) 7:30 PM. Join us for the Oakland Audubon Society's
meeting and a program titled “Wild Bees in Urban Gardens” presented by U-M
Ph.D Candidates.
We all know that honeybees are in steep decline. Native species of wild
bees are also important pollinators, and unfortunately they are also in
trouble. Can the urban gardening/urban farming movement help? Get some
important insight about this issue. Meetings are held at the First United
Methodist Church, Thomas Parlor Room, 1589 West Maple Road, Birmingham, MI
48009. Enter the building from the rear main entrance. Everyone is welcome
to attend.

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

Subject: [birders] Red-throated Loon and Eared Grebe
Joe Hammerle and I had a great day at Pointe Mouillee today! Not much in the way of shorebirds today but we had an Eared Grebe in breeding plumage and a Red-throated Loon in non breeding plumage, both in cell 4. Also had a visit from 11 American White Pelicans. I'll post photos to eBird and Flickr this afternoon.

Subject: RE: [birders] Indigo Bunting photos
I wonder if these early arrivals are unique in recorded bird history and
really indicative of climate change or if it's just a case of our short
human memories and records? Some of you real experts out there who would
like to hazard a comment??

We were quite amazed to have an Indigo Bunting at our feeder this
morning. It is an all time early record for us up here in
southernmost Sanilac County. It is a male bird still molting from
brown to its summer indigo. Not sure if it was coincidental, but we
also had our FOY Chipping Sparrow too.

Subject: [birders] Early spring (4/8) field trip report to the Arb: Winter wrens galore!
Our group of about two dozen birders began today's field trip with two
pairs of Wood ducks perched in the trees at the end of Riverview, including
one of the females investigating a hole in a thick, bulky branch.
Golden-crowned kinglets were seen from the trip's beginning to end. Almost
everyone in the group got good looks at target species: Yellow-bellied
sapsucker, Eastern phoebe, Brown creeper, both Kinglets, Hermit thrush,
Pine warbler, and Yellow-rumped warbler. Eluding us was Fox sparrow until
the very end when we returned to our cars -- Alex caught sight of a Fox
sparrow in the dense brush paralleling Pineview Ct.

The star of today's field trip was WINTER WREN. A couple of us caught sight
of Old Faithful, that is, the Winter wren who has been seen and heard for
over a week and a half in the downed timber lining the wood margins at
third inlet of Dow Prairie's southwest corner. We relocated to the second
inlet where three Winter wrens came into view and at least one sang
repeatedly his complex and lengthy sound. Looping the Arb, our group caught
sight of another three Winter wrens here and there, resulting in a grand
total of EIGHT Winter wrens today! What a treat!

Many thanks to all birders who located birds and gave directions to their
fellow birders so they could also see them. A big heap of gratitude to
Norka Saldana who kept a running list of today's sightings. This was a
super great day, and I encourage birders to GET OUT THERE now while warm
south winds push the birds north to us.

Jeffrey, could you take a look at the head pattern and compare that to Horned Grebe. The difference between the two can be tricky. The probability that there are more than one Eared Grebe in the East of the US is quite rare.

April 8, 2017 (Saturday) 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Maple River State Game Area.
Leader: Jeff Stacey
We'll search for late waterfowl and early migrants at this under-birded
preserve. Last year we found 63 species despite poor weather conditions.
Meet at the Park & Ride on South Williams Road off US-127 (exit 91) and
we'll carpool from there to several sites in the state game area. Bring a
snack since there are no services in the immediate area.

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

Subject: [birders] Reminder: Arb walk, Sat., 4/8, 8 am, in search of early spring migrants
This is a final reminder about tomorrow's Washtenaw Audubon
Society-sponsored Arb walk in search of early spring migrants such as
Yellow-bellied sapsuckers, White-throated sparrows, Winter wrens, Fox
sparrows, Ruby- and Golden-crowned kinglets, and Brown creepers. We will be
on the lookout for first warblers -- Yellow-rumped, Pine, and
Orange-crowned. Louisiana waterthrush would be a rarity but we heard and
some birders saw one on this same field trip last year.

We will wander the Arb's meandering gravel and dirt paths. Dress
appropriately for a very cold start to a warmer day -- coat, gloves, scarf,
hat, and sensible footwear. No strollers, dogs, or wagons please. Walk
should end between 10:30 and 11 AM. We will meet at the Riverview entrance
to the Arb at 8 AM sharp.

Subject: [birders] Dolph birds
A visit to Dolph Park in Ann Arbor produced a Common Loon, a Horned
Grebe and a Blue-winged Teal, all in or near the Second Sister Lake. The
First Sister Lake had many Pied-billed Grebes and a variety of diving ducks.

There is a significant cutting of trees and shrubs going on today,
mostly around the parking lot. It would be better to leave your
vehicles along Parklake Avenue and walk in from the back. The trails are
muddy but accessible.

Subject: [birders] Upcoming Washtenaw Audubon field trips
Please join us this upcoming weekend for one (or both!) of our scheduled field trips:
Arb Early Migrants: Saturday, April 8, 2017
Early springtime walks through the Arb are productive for Yellow-bellied sapsuckers, White-throated sparrows, Winter wrens, Fox sparrows, Ruby- and Golden-crowned kinglets, and Brown creepers. These early birds are joined bythe first warblers -- Yellow-rumped, Pine, Palm, and Orange-crowned. Maybe a Blue-headed vireo will join them. We will wander the Arb's meandering gravel and dirt paths in search of early spring migrants. We will meet at the Riverview entrance to the Arb at 8 AM sharp. Dress appropriately for the weather including coat, gloves, scarf, hat, and sensible footwear. No strollers, dogs, or wagons please. Walk should end between 10:30 and 11 AM.Leader: Karen Markey
In Search of Salamanders: Sunday, April 09, 2017
Join leader Edwin Sanchez at Hudson Mills Metropark. Eddie is an expert on these amphibians and this will be a fun morning turning over rocks and logs to locate some of the six species known to reside in the park. Meet at the parking lot for the River Grove Shelter area located within the park (turn right after the entry kiosk, then your next left into the lot). Expect muddy grounds. In case we end up handling any salamanders, please do not use any soaps, creams, or detergents on your hands for this morning. This fun, hands-on field trip is perfect for little ones, as well. (10 AM to 1 PM) This field trip is free of charge, but a MetroParks Pass is required for admission to the park.

It would be very rare, but with climate change in full swing, anything can happen the days.

There are wintering birds in FL and they might have moved a bit north and found it suitable and then a bit further and further.

Subject: Re: [birders] Fw: Oriole?
I already have my hummingbird feeders out. Oriole's will go to them. If they do come early - like many other species have already - they are going to be in bad shape and will need food. Foolish perhaps but I thought I saw a hummer a few days ago disappearing over my deck roof, a common sight from years past.
At any rate, it won't hurt anything.

I had 2 people today tell me they saw an oriole in Chelsea in the last few days. I know both these folks, but not sure of their birding skills. Could this be possible, with house wren siteings already?

The peepers were singing like crazy tonight!

Subject: [birders] Mute swan stealing fish
Today I saw a mute swan on my cove off Lake St. Clair chase down a pied billed grebe, which was carrying and trying to swallow a good-sized fish it had caught, until it dropped it. The swan then ate the fish; afterward continuing to follow the other PB grebes until it realized they didn't have anything. I didn't know swans ate fish. Slim pickings under water, I guess.

Subject: [birders] Oakland Audubon Society upcoming events, April 8 and 11
April 8, 2017 (Saturday) 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Maple River State Game Area.
Leader: Jeff Stacey
We'll search for late waterfowl and early migrants at this under-birded
preserve. Last year we found 63 species despite poor weather conditions.
Meet at the Park & Ride on South Williams Road off US-127 (exit 91) and
we'll carpool from there to several sites in the state game area. Bring a
snack since there are no services in the immediate area.

April 11, 2017 (Tuesday) 7:30 PM. Join us at the Oakland Audubon Society's
meeting for a program titled “Wild Bees in Urban Gardens” presented by U-M
Ph.D Candidates.
We all know that honeybees are in steep decline. Native species of wild
bees are also important pollinators, and unfortunately they are also in
trouble. Can the urban gardening/urban farming movement help? Get some
important insight about this issue. Meetings are held at the First United
Methodist Church, Thomas Parlor Room, 1589 West Maple Road, Birmingham, MI
48009. Enter the building from the rear main entrance. Everyone is welcome
to attend.

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

A good one I use for Downy/Hairy woodpeckers is to use a wire to hang a Coke Zero can (similar in colors) from the gutter near their favorite places to "peck". I bet it might work for the "attacks" you mention too. I will have to try it as we seem infested with "attack birds" this spring. At least two female cardinals and a robin have been so obsessed for about two weeks now!

Good luck!

I've had chickadees, tufted titmice, white breasted and red breasted
nuthatches, even a couple of mourning doves (rather unusual here) and black
squirrels at the feeder from the first day Wednesday. This is the first day
for the junco flock.

From: Karen Markey <ylime...>
Subject: [birders] Arb bonanza! | WAS-sponsored Arb field trip this Sat., 4/8, at 8 am, in search of early spring migrants
What a difference a day makes! In yesterday's warm weather, I had
difficulty finding any spring migrants. Today it was raw and cold; however,
my good luck started when I relocated the Winter wren that has been present
at the "third inlet" on the southwest corner of Dow Prairie for a week.
Only once he sang his complicated spring song every so lightly, punctuated
by his kit-kit call. Seeking the Arb's few wooded locations where cleaning
crews haven't cut down and removed the brush, I was fortunate to find there
Fox sparrows, Hermit thrush, Yellow-bellied sapsucker, Golden-crowned
kinglets, and more Winter wrens.

I am leading a WAS-sponsored field trip to the Arb this Saturday, April 8.
Meet at the Riverside entrance at 8 am. I can't guarantee we'll see the
full range of early spring migrants but we'll sure knock ourselves out
trying. All are welcome to join the WAS field trip.

Here's my list from my visit to the Arb today:

Nichols Arboretum, Washtenaw, Michigan, US
Apr 3, 2017 8:30 AM - 7:55 PM
Protocol: Traveling
3.0 mile(s)
37 species

Canada Goose 5
Mallard 4
Turkey Vulture 2
Cooper's Hawk 2
Killdeer 1
Ring-billed Gull 1
Mourning Dove 2
Red-bellied Woodpecker 10
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 1
Downy Woodpecker 8

Hairy Woodpecker 1
Northern Flicker 2
Eastern Phoebe 5
Blue Jay 7
American Crow 5
Black-capped Chickadee 6
Tufted Titmouse 12
White-breasted Nuthatch 14
Brown Creeper 2
Winter Wren 5 Notes: Except for 2 hanging out together in the "second
inlet" on the south border of Dow Prairie, these birds were scattered
throughout the Arb wherever there was downed timber. The winter wren I
reported a week ago in the "third input" on the southwest corner of Dow
Prairie is still there. He prefers the south edge of the inlet, not the
north edge where there's a ridge packed with downed timber. He calls and
sings very softly from time to time.

Carolina Wren 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet 10
Eastern Bluebird 2
Hermit Thrush 1 Notes: The thrush was in the company of 5 fox sparrows.
Walk up the west north-south road that starts at Geddes and ends at the
river. A little north of the lookout is the "Forsyth" bench on the west
side of the road. Turn around and look east and down into the valley
adjacent the road where there's brush and cover for birds to forage.
American Robin 18
European Starling 3
Fox Sparrow 7 Notes: See Hermit thrush above. I had 2 more fox sparrows
at a difficult-to-describe location but one where there was lots of brush.
Dark-eyed Junco 5
White-throated Sparrow 6
Song Sparrow 8

Northern Cardinal 6
Red-winged Blackbird 2
Common Grackle 3
Brown-headed Cowbird 8
House Finch 7
American Goldfinch 2
House Sparrow 2

Subject: [birders] Winter bird banding blog summary
Everyone,

I haven't updated my blog in quite a while, partly because there aren't any
hummingbirds in the Great Lakes this winter (except one still in the
Cincinnati area). For the past 14 winters, I have been banding birds in my
tiny suburban yard, and I thought I would share some of the results on my
blog. Also, I undertook a preliminary effort to band Northern Saw-whet Owls
on Belle Isle, and I have posted a brief summary about this project as well.

Spotted at Gallup Park earlier today near last foot bridge heading east. Size about 3/4 that of mallard, teal-shaped body, dark in color. No binocs; closest view 15'. Most distinguishing feature, sizeable yellow patch on side of head. My distance eye sight is just over the line for officially needing glasses for driving, which I wasn't wearing; so the yellow could have been feathers.

She sees her reflection, and thinks it's another bird. Make sure to tape
things to the outside of the window, else she can still see herself in the
glass. Sometimes it works to tape up some window screen material, it breaks
the reflection, and you can still see out.

good luck,

At Barton this afternoon there were three loons and a breeding plumage horned grebe out in the middle of the pond.

Later at Gallup there was another breeding plumage horned grebe. Very close to the parking lot at the end of the road. I saw it up close but then it dove and didn't reappear that I saw til 10 minutes later a bit farther out but still great looks.

Ford Lake was full of Red-breasted Mergansers this AM. I counted 117, by far the most I have ever seen in Washtenaw Cty. You can see them with a scope from North Bay Park or the overlook off of Grove rd on the other side of the lake.

There were 9 loons and some horned grebes off of Loon Feather Point Park on Ford Lk. The grebe popped up right next to me, never been that close before.

Subject: [birders] White-necked Heron aka Pacific Heron
I've a friend that lives in Australia. This White-necked Heron was
meandering out in the paddocks near his house, several hundred metres
from the nearest dam. Being a scientist, the friend, not the bird, I
think it's driving him crazy that he can't explain why it was
strolling around in the grass instead of frolicking in the water.

If anyone can provide an answer or at least hazard a guess, I'm sure
it would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: Re: [birders] OT: Bird feeder advice
Hey John......
I believe the feeder you have is called a 'Looker'. (Looker, Inc., - Looker.com)
I've had one for years and have very good success feeding bluebirds.
Like you, I've tried the Bluebird Nuggets. I've never observed a bluebird eating them at all. Perhaps others have...???


I feed Bluebirds using one of those 'Looker' feeders. I use mealworms. Bluebirds love 'em, especially during cold weather. The Bluebirds also supplement the diets of their nestlings with the mealworms. (A vital, quite likely lifesaving, process especially during the cold, wet weather often encountered during the early weeks of the nesting season, when natural food is scarce, or non-existent...!! )


I place the mealworms into small, plastic 'Frozen Vegetable' dishes, set inside the Looker. I've gone to the trouble of subdividing the dish into three sections (Glue & Small pieces of cedar shingles). I place the mealworms into the center section. That prevents starlings from stretching their necks into the Looker and grabbing the mealworms.


I've had Bluebirds ( 5 or 6 ) with me thru the past winter. There are only two now. They've selected a nestbox perhaps 50 feet from my house. Mrs Bluebird has, just today, put the finishing touches on her 1st nest. We expect her 1st egg in a day or two.


Thank you for caring about our Easter Bluebird population. They really need our help.

I bought years ago one of those bluebird feeders with the side windows with entry holes on each end. I stocked it with bluebird nuggets during winter seasons and never once saw a bluebird use the feeder, even though bluebirds are in my yard occasionally all winter long on clear, calm days. They are always high on tree tops, so I got the feeder to try and lure them closer for better viewing. I was going through things in my garage with aim to get rid of stuff I am not using anymore and this feeder is a candidate.
Has anyone had success with this kind of feeder for bluebirds or re-purposing the feeder using other foods for other species of birds?

Birders,
This Thursday, March 30, we begin our weekly Spring Migration Bird Walks at
Nichols Arboretum in Ann Arbor. We bird every Thursday morning through the
last week of May. We'll meet, as usual, at the Riverview Ct. entrance, at
the far end of Dow Prairie. Construction is completed on Geddes, so it will
be much easier for all of us to get there!!
We meet at 8:00 a.m. and wrap up around 11. Of course you are welcome to
leave whenever you choose.

I look forward to seeing many of you! Let's keep fingers crossed that the
predicted rain holds off.

Good birding,

Subject: RE: [birders] relocated injured Great Horned Owl Milan
It's what I would have done in your place too. It's very much like what I do
if I find a stunned bird on the ground. Cover it to calm it, take it to a
safe place, and see if that's enough. Evidently, the owl was not too badly
hurt if it could fly away immediately upon uncovering.

If there are rehabbers out there who have a better idea of what should be
done, I'd be happy to read it. It's particularly important for this kind of
situation where time and personal safety are of the essence.

Subject: [birders] relocated injured Great Horned Owl Milan



On my way to work this morning I passed an injured Great Horned Owl sitting
on the side of Carpenter Road on the US 23 overpass. When I returned with
my co-worker it was still there. It appeared to have been hit by a car.
There was roadkill in the road beside it. A small pool of blood was near
the owl. With my co-workers assistance I covered the owl with my jacket and
relocated it to an open field on Federal Property about 1/4 mile away off
Arkona Road. After I gently sat the owl on the ground it immediately flew
off to the Northwest towards US 23.



I don't know if I did the right thing by relocating the owl but it's likely
it would have gotten smoked by an oncoming car sitting on the overpass. I
did not get a good look at the owl's face as I was mainly concerned with
getting off the road during heavy traffic in the darkness.

Subject: [birders] relocated injured Great Horned Owl Milan
On my way to work this morning I passed an injured Great Horned Owl sitting on the side of Carpenter Road on the US 23 overpass. When I returned with my co-worker it was still there. It appeared to have been hit by a car. There was roadkill in the road beside it. A small pool of blood was near the owl. With my co-workers assistance I covered the owl with my jacket and relocated it to an open field on Federal Property about 1/4 mile away off Arkona Road. After I gently sat the owl on the ground it immediately flew off to the Northwest towards US 23.

I don't know if I did the right thing by relocating the owl but it's likely it would have gotten smoked by an oncoming car sitting on the overpass. I did not get a good look at the owl's face as I was mainly concerned with getting off the road during heavy traffic in the darkness.
