I've been observing it for several days. This is the 3rd winter in a row
that a Mockingbird has been on territory at Gallup.
I saw it yesterday, and hopefully will see it again on the Ann Arbor
Christmas Bird Count!
Thanks for the report, Roger.

Subject: Re: [birders] RE: downy woodpecker asleep sideways on branch
I saw this behavior many years ago, only the downy I saw was vertical on the tree. The weather was terrible that day. I thought it was dying but it ended up flying away after an hour or so. I asked the board at that time and someone had a possible answer but I can’t remember what it was! Just wanted to let you know I have also seen it. The tree it was on had suet offering and the downies fed often from it.

This one was alone, on the small crabapple tree that's the official perch tree for the birds who partake of the various feeders. But, it was weird: It was seemingly asleep, its body horizontal (!) and completely still, alongside a horizontal branch. Not alongside the top of the branch. It was lying down horizontally along the side of a branch that's maybe 2-3" in diameter. I don't know how long the downy had been like this. At least 10 minutes.

Subject: Re: [birders] RE: downy woodpecker asleep sideways on branch
This is a common response to a hawk in the neighborhood. The birds will
often remain frozen for many minutes until they are sure the hawk is gone.
Because the woodpeckers can cling to the bottom of a branch, it is safer to
go there, where they are out of sight from above.

Subject: Re: [birders] downy woodpecker asleep sideways on branch
Some birds such as the mistletoebird in Australia perch this way on the
topside of branches in order drop mistletoe seeds on new host trees
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mistletoebird

and thereby propagate mistleoes, an important food source.

So, there can be important adaptive value in these behaviors.

I have never seen a bird on the side of a branch, but have seen woodpeckers, usually Red Bellies, on their bellies on the top of a tree that I had to top has three flat large branches, just hanging out.

I have see downies twice now pressed flat (vertically) against the side of my peanut butter log feeder when a hawk came by. Once there was a Downy on one side and a chickadee on the other side. They stayed flat and silent far after the hawk had gone elsewhere. I wonder if just missed seeing a Cooper’s fly by.

Subject: [birders] downy woodpecker asleep sideways on branch

External Email - Use Caution
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has seen this behavior; it's new to me. I came home to see one of the several downies that hang out near my kitchen window because of the suet I provide. This one was alone, on the small crabapple tree that's the official perch tree for the birds who partake of the various feeders. But, it was weird: It was seemingly asleep, its body horizontal (!) and completely still, alongside a horizontal branch. Not alongside the top of the branch. It was lying down horizontally along the side of a branch that's maybe 2-3" in diameter. I don't know how long the downy had been like this. At least 10 minutes.

Above is a not great picture, but could be enough to see what's going on.

I thought at first it might be dead or near dead; killed by a hawk, which fled for some reason, the prey still clinging to the branch and/or its life. No other birds were around, which added to the hawk theory.
But after 10 minutes from the time I first saw it (could have been hours, for all I know), it sat upright, fluffed its feathers and eventually took off. I missed its takeoff.
Was it sleeping? Was it being still to avoid being seen by a Coopers (if I don't move, it won't see me, never mind that I'm not really camouflaged.)?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Leslie Landau

Subject: Re: [birders] OT: Swift chimney study favorable for repair
Roger and others:Below is a table from a 2018 study out of Ontario. You can see nearly 100% retention of use of existing chimneys, even when structures around them are destroyed. You can also see the dismal 3.8% success rate when a new tower is built. If you'd like to learn more about swifts, I'd recommend joining Ontario Swift Watch and the Wisconsin Working Group on Swifts.There is , of course, no guarantee that the swifts will remain, but they have in other communities where surrounding structures were removed. If you'd like a pdf of the above mentioned study, contact me off list and I'll send to you.

Subject: [birders] Hartland Christmas Bird Count - an invitation (Dec 15)
Although I’m sure many on this list are tied into the Ann Arbor Christmas Bird Count on Dec 15 (this Saturday), I did want to make sure you’re aware there is another local count on the same day. If you’re a Livingston County birder, and interested in participating, please let me know right away and I’ll help you find some turf to cover. We’re especially interested in any feeder counts from folks (inside our count circle).

The area is the Hartland CBC circle, which covers Howell, Hartland, part of Brighton and a good chunk of land north of M-59. You can see a map of the exact count circle here <https://audubon.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=fadfb421e95f4949bde20c29a38228bd>

We split the area up into 7 sections and there are section leaders for each area. Contact me if you’re interested and I’ll help find you a place to bird!

Also, we’ll meet at a new site for the tally. We plan on 5pm (sundown) meet at Aubree’s on Grand River in Howell. This is a new tally spot for us. It’s a bit closer to where most participants live.

Subject: [birders] Reminder: Ann Arbor CBC is this Saturday, 12/15/18
Good afternoon all.I would like to invite all to participate in the 72nd Ann Arbor Christmas Bird Count. The event runs from the owling effort in the pre-dawn hours, through day-time birding, and culminates in the potluck-tally at the end of the day (around 5:30 p.m.) at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Birders of all skill levels are welcome!Please visit the Washtenaw Audubon Society's Christmas Bird Count web pages for more information and to sign up, or contact me via email.
Don't forget that the count week period starts three days ahead of the count (i.e. on Wednesday the 12th) and runs through the end of Tuesday the 18th - any birds observed during this period that are not seen on count day can still be reported. Please feel free to shoot me an email with specifics on any and all sightings you make during this time frame.
Hope to see out there! Good birding,
Jacco GelderloosAnn Arbor CBC Compiler

Subject: [birders] Day 13 of Peru Birding Trip posted to blog
Everyone,

I have just posted narration and lots of photos from Day 13 of my birding
trip to Peru back in July. On this day, I was in the high Andes and saw a
lot of interesting birds, some spectacular scenery, and yes, even
hummingbirds. I have one more day to post, which I may get done in a couple
weeks, I hope. To view my blog, go to:

Subject: [birders] OT: Swift chimney study favorable for repair

Check below link. It DOES look like the swift chimney in A2 can be saved, although we are cautiously optimistic until we have a quote in hand for what we'll need to raise. Remember that your Washtenaw Audubon Society has earmarked $5,000 for this project, and will be fundraising the remainder. Another small step forward!

For easy sign-up, please fill out the Christmas Bird Count Sign-Up Form; this form also allows you to indicate whether or not you will be attending the potluck-tally event at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens at the end of the day - I find this to be one of the highlights of the event, so consider attending for good food, good company, and to find out what birds were or were not found during the day! Alternately, you can contact me to be assigned to an area where you would be needed most.

Everyone,

Day 11 of my Peru trip in July was mainly a travel day, so I got another
posting done fairly quickly. But I think it is still worth a read, as in
the afternoon we visited some coastal marshes with some different and new
species seen and photographed.

Observers:

Visitors:
Dave and Linda, Pat Schiller, Kory Renaud, and Bob Hall-Brooks all came out
to the tower in the afternoon today.


Weather:
A heavy fog was present in the morning and though the skies cleared later
in the afternoon, there was still a thick haze on the horizon and
visibility was low all day. Light winds were from the northwest in the
morning and switched to the southwest, then the south in the afternoon.
Temperatures began at 0 C and reached a high of 4.2 C. Humidity was around
80%.

Raptor Observations:
An adult Red-tailed Hawk was observed today. A Coopers Hawk was banded and
one was later observed. A Northern Harrier was seen hanging around the
marsh in the distance. [4] adult Bald Eagles and an immature were observed
picking at a carcass on the frozen marsh.


Non-raptor Observations:
Large numbers of ducks, mostly Mallards, were huddled along the edge of the
ice in a few areas of open water on the marsh. Canvasback flocks were
observed again. 24 Eastern Bluebirds were calling as they flew over the
tower today. American Goldfinch and Pine Siskin in particular continue to
fly over as well.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50328917

Predictions:
This marks the conclusion of the 44th year of raptor data collection at
Holiday Beach and the 30th anniversary at the Hawk Watch Tower. It truly
was a pleasure and a privilege to be the official Hawk Counter this year. I
have tried to preform my responsibilities to the best of my ability, have
been honest and tried to be as accurate as possible in the process.

A big thank you is needed to everyone who has help me along the way,
especially Bob Pettit, Dave and Linda, Paul and Caroline, Bob Hall-Brooks,
Kory Renaud, and Jeremy Bensette, but also many others! Thanks to everyone
who came out to the tower this season to assist with the count, gain an
educational experience, keep me company, and/or just enjoy the view. It was
a pleasure to meet you all! Finally, thanks to everyone who followed these
daily reports on OntBirds and Hawkcount.org. Your interest and awareness
are much appreciated.

Although migration has been slow recently and is likely winding down, with
the right winds and weather conditions there is still a chance to see
something great. So keep your eyes to the sky and Good Birding!!

"Watching the Watcher"



Taken yesterday from my kitchen window, through one pane of glass. While I frequently see both the RB abd the WB nuthatches pause at the feeder to check out the surroundings, I don't often catch them head-on, quite possibly lookingright at me. This bird maintained that positioin for some time, long enough for me to get several shots through the glass, hand-held at maximum zoom (65x optical, 4x digital) of which this was the best both in terms of sharpness and framing — hand-held at this effective magnification makes even keeping the desired image area within the frame challenging! This image is slightly cropped, containing perhaps about 80% of the full-frame image. The subject distance is approximately 20' from the camera, a Canon PowerShot SX60 HS.



After taking enogh shots to get several that had the bird reaspnably well "framed," I tried to remove the storm window from the inside, which I can occasionally do without spooking the bird, but it flew off before I could get it out of the way.



I found the difference between the head-on view from a more typical side view to be somewhat comical, since these birds so often seem to be very intent on getting in and out so quickly and almost stealthiiy, as if they are consciously "stealing" the food they take away, and their sideways view tends to lend them a slightly evil intent in their actions which seem somewhat furtive to me!

> Rare Bird Alert: November 30, 2018
> by Nate Swick
> It was a big week for vagrant raptors, not least of which because of the dramatic return of the Great Black Hawk (ABA Code 5) in Maine, rediscovered in a Portland city park eating squirrels aftera multi-week absence. This bird is rapidly turning into the nuttiest vagrant of the year by virtue of its incredibly staying power. Other good birds still present include both Roadside Hawk (4) and Golden-crowned Warbler (4) in Texas, a Red-footed Booby (4) and a Little Stint (4) in California, and a Barnacle Goose (4) in New York.
>
> Most visiting birders have been gone from the Bering Sea islands for weeks now, but the growing community of local birders there are increasingly turning up jaw-dropping late season rarities. That seems to be the case again this year when Barbara Lestenkof (who already has an ABA 1st Black Kite to her name), found an odd Eurasian Buteo on St Paul Island this week. The buzzard sp, has been tentatively ID'd as a Long-legged Buzzard, which would be nothing short of extraordinary as that species is primarily found in central Asia. Other species suggested include Upland Buzzard (Buteo hemilasius) and the east Asian subspecies of Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo japonicus). Regardless of what it is ultimately identified as, this would be a 1st ABA Area record.

Total observation time: 6.25 hours

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
John Barnes made a visit to the tower this morning. Thank you for your
company, conversation and keen eyes this season.


Weather:
Snow and low visibility began the day with light south southeast winds and
a temperature of -2.5 C. Overcast skies and flurries persisted for much of
the day, though the sun did break through the clouds around noon and again
just before 1:00 pm. However, the winds moved southeast and snow and low
visibility moved back in for the final hour. This was followed by rain at
the end of the count as temperatures warmed to 0 C.

Raptor Observations:
The slow trend of migrating raptors this week continued at the tower today.
A Red-tailed Hawk and an adult Red-shouldered Hawk were observed flying
past.

Non-raptor Observations:
The marsh is almost completely frozen over again and therefore many species
were either absent or their numbers were reduced. Large flocks of
Canvasback were observed again flying out over the lake.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50307036

Predictions:
Tomorrow is the final day of the 2018 raptor season at the Holiday Beach
Hawk Watch. The winds are forecast to shift north sometime tonight and are
expected to remain northerly all day tomorrow. The skies should be clearing
until late afternoon and temperatures should reach a high of 5 C. Hopefully
this promising forecast will lead to a great day of migration at the tower
on the last day of the season.

Visitors:
Dave and Linda, as well as Chip for Colchester were welcomed visitors to
the tower today.


Weather:
Today had overcast skies and gusty winds from the west similar to
yesterday. The sun never did make an appearance. Temperatures were around
-2 C but felt much more comfortable in the afternoon, compared with the
previous day and a half as the winds diminished.

Raptor Observations:
A Coopers Hawk and a Merlin were observed flying past the tower today.
These individuals were also caught, banded and released by one of our
licensed banders. [5] Red-tailed Hawks were also observed and again, they
seemed to struggle with the west winds. Bald Eagles were seen throughout
the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
Several large flocks of Canvasback were flying over the lake, even
extending over the tower and were estimated at approximately 8000
individuals. What a sight! Many gulls were flying over today including a
large number of Herring Gulls.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50283149

Predictions:
Light to moderate winds from the south and snow flurries are expected for

Everyone,

I have posted another update to my blog for Day 10 of my July trip to Peru.
If you have not yet read the update for Day 9 that I posted a few days ago,
it is no longer at the top of the page, but can easily be read by following
the links I've provided. If you were disappointed that there weren't enough
hummingbirds in Day 9, you will be happy to know that there are plenty of
hummingbird photos in Day 10.

Subject: [birders] Barry County CBC, Dec 30
It's Christmas Bird Count (CBC) Season and our Barry County CBC is Sunday, Dec 30th. We can start as early as 12am, however that isn't necessary and most people begin with a little owling before sunrise followed by birding until noon when we meet for lunch and discuss what has been seen/heard so far.

This is a fun event and you do NOT have to be a seasoned / experienced birder to participate. All skill levels are welcome and for those that are less experienced, I will group you with others that can help guide and make you feel comfortable.

I NEED YOUR HELP! Don’t hesitate, please sign up for this fun event. Please contact me (no later than December 26th) if you are interested in this season's count and I will add you to my list. Also let me know if you prefer to bird with someone specific and I’ll do my best to make that happen. Thank you.

Subject: [birders] EUP Christmas Bird Counts


Have you ever wanted to come explore the EUP for winter birding
around the magical Holiday season? Then come on over, and help
with our citizen science efforts while your at it! There are 6 EUP
Christmas bird counts taking place this coming month, and we'd
love to have as many folks as possible come up to help count
birds. Experienced to brand new birders welcome.
I personally am in charge of the Les Cheneaux count which takes
place in the Cedarvile, Hessel and Pickford areas. For 20 years
this count has taken place! Expect birds like Pine Grosbeak, Snowy
Owl, Sharp-tailed Grouse and many more this holiday season. Many
counts are close together so come up for a few days and hit a few
in a row. Dates and details below:
December 15th, Sault Ste Marie. This exciting count is an
international count and includes the twin cities of Sault Ste
Marie ON and MI and the surrounding areas. Contact Dave Euler at <davideuler838...>
or Carter Dorscht at <carterdorscht...>
https://www.facebook.com/events/274265059960370/

December 18th, The Straits of Mackinac. The pin for this circle is
right on the middle of the Mackinac Bridge! Come bird the areas
around St Ignace, Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. Contact Steve
Baker at <steveandsuebaker...>
December 19th, Les Cheneaux Islands
This count includes the areas around Cedarville, Hessel and
Pickford MI. Expect a great day with friendly people exploring the
vast wonders of the North Huron area. Contact MI Sea Grant
Educator Elliot Nelson at <elliotne...> or 906-322-0353
https://www.facebook.com/events/259676668025060/

December 28th, RudyardOnly in it's second year of existence, this
exciting count includes open fields, dense forest, an old airforce
base and a landfill (more exciting then you'd think). Contact
Steve Baker at <steveandsuebaker...>
December 29th, Neebish Island and Dunbar
The remote Island of Neebish is a winter wonderland and the
mainland areas around Dunbar and Bruce Township are full of
fascinating birding opportunities. Contact Brian Zwiebel at <blzwiebel...>
Date TBD, Whitefish Point Limited roads are open, but wonderful
birds are still found. Occasionally Spruce Grouse, Gray Jay and
Crossbills are on the list! . Contact Charlie Weaver at

Total observation time: 3.5 hours

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Weather:
Heavy rain and some snow in the morning. At the start of the count, there
was still some light mixed precipitation, which soon ended. Strong
northwest winds up to 25 mph persisted. Snow flurries began again near the
end of the count. Temperatures were approximately 2 C and humidity 80%

Raptor Observations:
Despite the northwest winds, only 2 Red-tailed Hawks took their time
soaring in the winds, eventually crossing together to the north, which was
followed minutes later by a Northern Harrier. The weather system before and
the one after seemed to be impeding migration here today. 3 Bald Eagles
were around the marsh.

Non-raptor Observations:
There was not too much activity around the tower or in the marsh today.
Some Dark-eyed Junco, Black-capped Chickadee and Golden-crowed Kinglets
were observed.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50251074


Predictions:
Tomorrow morning should be a mix of sun and clouds at -2 C. The wind is
forecast from the west and will be moderate to strong, though not as strong
as yesterday. It is expected to cloud over in the afternoon with
temperatures reaching a high of 0 C.

Subject: [birders] off topic: Susan Falcone's Bird Art--2018 Open Studio--SAT DEC 1
Hi everyone, I'm holding my annual open studio in a few weeks--here is the information. Email me if you'd like a flyer! For those who don't know me, I am a watercolor artist, focusing primarily on birds.

My studio is a-glitter from ceiling to floor as I work toward my upcoming open studio, and I have recently completed this season's ornaments. So many pieces that are special for my open studios do not go to shows with me (new originals, prints with one-of-a-kind frames, new glittery ornaments, many kinds of notecards, new stones).

As always there will be a welcoming home well-decorated for the season, home-baked treats & Tom's home-roasted coffee, Matt's music and of course great company!

Attached are a flyer and map.

SATURDAY DEC 1 2018 (10-4)
7400 Plymouth Rd (southwest corner of Plymouth & Prospect,
across from Frains Lake)

**from Ann Arbor, go ~5 miles east on Plymouth Rd to the last house on the right before Prospect
**OR, from M-14 take the Ford Rd exit & go 1/2 mile east to the last house on the right before Prospect
**OR, from I-94 take US-23 north to the Plymouth Rd exit, then go ~5 miles east on Plymouth Rd to the last house on the right before Prospect

Subject: [birders] Washtenaw Audubon's Annual Gull Trip to Salem Landfill is December 8, 2018
WAS Gull Trip--December 8, 2018

Birders and friends,

Please join us to help find some unusual gulls! This annual trip is a
favorite for hard-core WAS members. Because access to the landfill is
restricted, we rent vans for the trip and have to limit the number of
participants. First priority goes to Washtenaw Audubon members who have not
recently been on this trip. Second priority will be given to Washtenaw
Audubon members who have previously attended this trip. Non-members may be
placed on a wait list on a first come, first served basis and will be
admitted three days before the trip to fill any remaining spots. *There are
still spots available and you must register to participate. Registration
link is below.*

*http://washtenawaudubon.org/events/eventlists/fieldtrips/eventdetail/243/gull-trip-to-salem-landfill
<http://washtenawaudubon.org/events/eventlists/fieldtrips/eventdetail/243/gull-trip-to-salem-landfill>*

If you are not a member, but want to join, please visit our membership page
<http://washtenawaudubon.org/give/become-a-member>.

*Due to the high cost of renting and fueling large passenger vans, we are
asking for a minimum donation of $5 from each participant.* This is not
required, but will help us offset some of the costs and allow us to
continue to provide this trip into the future. Please give your donation
to the trip leader on the day of the trip.

Meet at 8:30 a.m. at the far south end of the Park-n-Ride lot at Plymouth
Road and US 23. Please do not be late! We want to be in the vans and
driving by 8:45. This trip will take about 4 hours. Please note that the
weather for this outing can be extremely cold and that there is usually
wind on the heights of the landfill, where participants will be spending
most of the time. Dress warmly! (This means dress for temperatures at least
ten degrees colder than your morning thermometer reading. This is not an
active trip where you will be generating heat through movement.)

Our leaders are Rob French and Mike Sefton. I hope to see many of you
there!!

Juliet Berger, Washtenaw Audubon

Subject: [birders] Another blog update - Peru Hummingbird photo tour
Everyone,

Now that my songbird banding season is done, I have more time to work on
getting photos processed and posted to my blog. I have put up a summary and
photos for Day 8 of my Peru trip. There are 4 more days to go, and
hopefully I can get them done before Christmas...

Subject: [birders] Visit from a sharp-shinned
Got quite a few pictures of a sharp-shinned who came by to investigate the
koi in our pond. The bird seems to have been successful, as we are now
missing some koi.

I would appreciate assessments of this bird's age and gender. I'm
reasonably sure it's a sharpie, but I'm not good enough on my hawks to
venture into the age and gender question. I would like to supply that
information for this sighting.

View the sighting at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50182335.

Subject: [birders] unusual cardinal
I have an unusual cardinal who hit a window under ny car. If you have never handled a male cardinal, you might not know that a cardinal is a dark grey bird with red tips to his feathers. Most feathers on the ground are unlikely to attract attention on the ground for this reason. And birds can’t manufacture red pigments, they have to get the red from their food. Well, this bird is almost an albino with only very pale washes of grey on his feathers, only a pale grey mask, etc. Dark eyes. But his has all the red pigment from his food, so he is extra bright because he has near white behind all those red places. Think of a stained glass window on a sunny day, as opposed to on a dark afternoon. So he is dayglo red. I have seen one like him before in someone’s yard, and guessed that he must be like this.

Subject: Re: [birders] red-breasted nuthatch and pine siskin

I have had a couple of red-breasted nuthatches at my feeders all fall, and a flock of about a dozen pine siskins showed up yesterday for the first time this season. It is the earliest in the fall I have seen pine siskins in 17 years of participating in FeederWatch at this location. Previously, I have only observed red-breasted nuthatches here during FeederWatch in 2006 and 2014. This surprises me since red-breasted nuthatches are frequently observed nearby during the Stinchfield Woods Breeding Bird Survey.

Subject: [birders] Glaucous Gull, Harrisville
Birders:


I am on the road in northern Michigan today, stopping in various spots along the Lake Huron shoreline to check out the birds along the way. While in Harrisville earlier today, I found a first-winter Glaucous Gull (along with several of the usual suspects for this time of year) at the foot of Main Street.

Subject: [birders] Non-sighting: Happening NOW: Irruption of Winter Finches Underway

>
> Happening NOW: Irruption of Winter Finches Underway
> by Mike Hudson
> In July, a small, charismatic passerine began arriving at feeders and migrant traps in the mid-Atlantic and southeast—well outside its breeding range. Birding listervs, text groups, eBird rarity alerts, and the like lit up with the news: Red-breasted Nuthatches were on the move. Though it was still mid-summer at the time, this clued birders for what the fall might bring—winter finches.
>
> As a group of birds, winter finches have an ability to define a season in a way few other birds do. When thinking back on seasons past, I often find myself using the movements of finches and similar irruptive migrants as bookmarks—while I might not remember how warm or cool a winter was, I can usually remember how many Pine Siskins or Common Redpolls I saw and use that to ground my other recollections. What makes them so memorable, in my opinion, is how unpredictable they seem. Of course, I say “seem” because if you know what to pay attention to, the movements of these birds may be quite possible to foresee. Most of these irruptions are fueled by lack of food. When a typically prolific and reliable berry or cone crop fails, birds are forced to wander farther to look for substitute food sources. These failures are influenced by many factors, but are also somewhat cyclical, meaning that birders can predict—with varying degrees of accuracy—which winter irruptives may move and how far they may travel.
>
> In my part of the world, the last significant finch movement was the fall of my freshman year of college—Red-breasted Nuthatches arrived early, as they did this year, followed by Purple Finches in late September, and a few Pine Siskins shortly thereafter. Remembering this, when the nuthatches began showing up, I started looking ahead for the arrival of these and other species. Soon enough, the Purple Finches and Pine Siskins arrived—the former in numbers rarely seen before. However, none of these was the species I was hoping for the most—the spectacular Evening Grosbeak.
>
>
> Photo: Steven McGrath/Macaulay Library
> The Evening Grosbeak is an enigmatic species. It is large, bright, and distinctive, rendering it recognizable to even casual feeder-watchers, and was formerly considered a common and widespread winter backyard bird across much of the ABA Area. What followed was a marked decline in abundance and contraction in range. By the time I was birding seriously, it was a relative rarity in the mid-Atlantic and its appearance was limited to major irruption years. For more about that, readers can refer to this post from the last large-scale irruption, in 2012. Since that season, there have been no large and widespread movements of that species. Until this year.
>
> Over the past month or so, Evening Grosbeaks began to move beyond the limits of their normal winter ranges. Many years, Eastern birders consider themselves lucky if Evening Grosbeaks are seen outside of upstate New York and New England and birders in the Midwest may miss the species entirely, even in decent years. So far this year, eBird data are showing a different story. Since October, birds have made it as far south as Northampton County, Virginia, in the east and Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan have all racked up multiple reports.
>
> During what may become an unprecedented irruption of Evening Grosbeaks in recent memory, birders also have a unique opportunity to contribute to our knowledge of this species. Many birders don’t realize that, just like the Red Crossbill, there are actually several populations of Evening Grosbeaks composed of different “types”, mostly identified by variations in the birds’ vocalizations. Our understanding of these types is fuzzy, perhaps even more so than our understanding of Red Crossbill types. Take a look at this previous post for a neat summary of that situation. As a result, sharing your sightings of Evening Grosbeaks, and especially any recordings you might make, would be an incredible opportunity to increase our knowledge of this species.
>
> I would also be remiss not to note that this is exactly the kind of bird status and distribution event that we at North American Birds love to dig into. This topic could fill many additional pages and include many species beyond the ones I’ve mentioned here. Common and Hoary Redpolls and Bohemian Waxwings may also be poised for irruptions and there is some evidence that White-winged Crossbills may undertake some limited movements. Hopefully those pages will be in future issues of NAB and will include a broader analysis of both what happened and why. But until then, get outside and enjoy this wonderful opportunity. Fill your feeders, charge your camera battery, fire up your favorite sound recording app, and find some Evening Grosbeaks. And then put all of the information on eBird! Seriously, this is a time to contribute some valuable knowledge while enjoying one of the most impressive winter finches in the ABA area.

Subject: RE: [birders] Sandhills
There were hundreds of Sandhill Cranes, maybe a thousand or two, in the fields south of Shiawassee NWR yesterday. (I strained through them looking for a black throat, but alas! there were no Common Cranes among them.) There were hundreds and hundreds of Tundra Swans as well.

I saw an episode of Bizzare Foods that took the viewers to a Sandhill Crane hunt in Tennessee. The host, Andrew Zimmern, said the meat was delicious. I must admit that grilled, red meat looked so tasty, I wanted to try it myself! Not so sure about the Tundra Swan... probably stew it like Mudhens and Rails.

Good birding and bon appetit.

If anyone has gone out to look for the Golden Eagle on Dalton Rd. there are
hundreds of sandhills there. Quite impressive. We got closer looks by going

Subject: [birders] Sandhills
Heard the inimitable chatter/croak/honking of sandhill cranes in our back
acreage today. I thought they were long gone, but there were at least three
distinctly different individuals "talking" to each other. The north end of
the Clinton millpond is on our property and hosts a sandhill crane nesting
area. Love these guys and sure hope there is NEVER a hunting season for
them. I would be hard-pressed to keep hunters from ignoring signs and
picking off as many as they can bag.

Does anyone know what happened to the hunting proposal? I hope it failed.

Hi, Allen - Thanks as always for posting these photos. I am especially impressed with the variety of tanagers found in South America and Central America (we were just in Costa Rica a few months back)! Can you tell me a bit about the photo equipment you are using? I’m a fairly casual birder, just getting started in bird photography, and discovering it’s a bit harder than it looks!

Subject: [birders] Crosswinds Marsh gulls
Hi, I was at crosswinds (Wayne co) yesterday for a Girl Scout trip. Had no
scope, but did have bins. There was a group of 1000 or so gulls on the ice
along the back of the big impoundment, visible from the boardwalk. I made
a quick scan with the bins and saw two adult(ish) lesser black-backed
gulls, and then, a gorgeous immaculate white second-winter Kumlien’s
Iceland gull flew in and circled around right in front of us before landing
in with the other gulls. Wish I had my scope. Crosswinds can be fantastic
for gulls as long as there is open water, so if you’re into it, now is the
time. Keep in mind they come and go, especially if the dump is open, or if
they get flushed by an eagle or something, so more than one stop may be
required during the day.

Curt.

Subject: [birders] Philadelphia Vireo, Eastern Phoebe at Edsel and Eleanor Ford House
Birders:


Sorry for the late post but it took a little bit of time for all of us to agree on the identification. During a bird walk at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores on Saturday morning, we found a Philadelphia Vireo. (Some of us thought it might me an immature Orange-crowned Warbler -- until I saw photos this afternoon. Okay, blame me!) I doubt this bird is able to be chased, especially since the Ford House is closed on Monday.


We also found an Eastern Phoebe. The rest ... usual suspects.

Visitors:
8 visitors were at the tower today including, John Barnes, Chip and Dana
from Colchester, and Kory Renaud.


Weather:
It was mostly cloudy to start the day with light winds from the west and a
temperature around 3 C. Temperatures warmed slightly, cloud cover increased
and the winds shifted to the southwest in the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
A light morph adult SWAINSON'S HAWK was observed today, the second in just
over the past week!! An adult Golden Eagle flew over the tower today and
circled above before moving on. 4 light morph Rough-legged Hawks were
observed. (96) Red-tailed Hawks and (17) Red-shouldered Hawks were also
coming through in good numbers. Most of this action took place between
10:00 am and noon.

Non-raptor Observations:
An all white gull was observed today. ID TBD. 2 Common Goldeneye were
observed on the lake. The marsh had thawed and many more ducks were around
today. In addition, a huge raft of ducks was observed far on out on the
lake, too far to positively ID. Ebird checklist pending.

Predictions:
Winds are expected from the north overnight and into tomorrow with some
mixed precipitation in the morning and cloudy skies in the afternoon. The
temperature will begin around 0 C but should warm as the day progresses.

There is a male Long Tailed Duck on Portage Lake north of the Washtenaw

Buffleheads just off Foxpoint.  There is a group of duck hunterson the
west side of the lake that spooked the birds so it may be hard to find
it.The Buffles have been around fora couple of weeks so the Long Tailed
may hang around for awhile. The best opportunity to see it may be the
Portage Yacht club or Foxpointe Beach.
