Observers:

Visitors:
12 visitors were at the tower throughout different points in the day
including Phil and Filla from Detroit, Professor Bill from Ann Arbor, John
Barnes and Bob Vodarek. Thanks to all who came out today!


Weather:
Moderate winds from the southwest began the day with a temperature of 6.6 C
and mostly sunny skies. The sunny skies lasted throughout the day. The
winds calmed to almost no wind in the afternoon (it also shifted to the
south, then to the southeast in the final 2 hours). Temperatures rose to a
high of 15.1 C.

Raptor Observations:
A good number of Sharp-shinned Hawks were flying over today, specifically
around mid-morning, including 110 individuals between 9:00 - 10:00 am EST.
This was one of the highest counts of Sharpies at the tower this season! An
adult Broad-winged Hawk was observed in a kettle of Turkey Vultures. By the
afternoon, much of the activity over the tower had slowed dramatically. The
Turkey Vulture stream had moved well north and a scope was required for
viewing.

Non-raptor Observations:
An American Woodcock, 5 Tundra Swans and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher are among
the birds observed today.

Blue Jays - 4,070
Monarchs - 3

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49382284

Predictions:
Winds are expected to switch to the northwest tomorrow morning and last
throughout the day! It will be mainly sunny skies with a high of 11 C. The
winds will shift just as I will be getting to the tower in the morning and
I am hoping for a really good day of raptor viewing!

Visitors:
Even in the cold weather multiple brave souls visited today. In total we
had 11 visitors including my friend Jackie P and Dan Lumm's sister Yvonne.



Weather:
Cloudy and cold today with winds from the West or WNW.
Temperatures began at 2.9 C and ended at 5.8 C. Winds varied between WNW
and W hourly at speeds from 2 kmph blowing and gusting to 10 kmph. No sun
during the count hours at all.

Raptor Observations:
Resident Eagles and the 2 Osprey who have been hanging out entertained us
today. Overall 12 species of hawk today were seen, with our season's first
Northern Goshawk giving those on the tower a nice look as he flew over the
marsh relatively low.

Non-raptor Observations:
Song birds were present but not in large numbers, other than the Blue Jays
and American Crow flocks migrating. Ducks in the marsh also seemed to be
lower in number in the area around the tower. See the eBird report
specifics: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49356832

Predictions:
A bit warmer and sunnier tomorrow!

Observers:

Visitors:
14 visitors were at the tower today including Nick and Liz Belle from
London, and John Barnes.


Weather:
The day began with light to moderate southwest winds, with 90% cloud cover
and a temperature of 11 C. Winds continued from the southwest all day, the
temperature rose only slightly and cloud cover was variable. A light
drizzle fell in the afternoon and by 2:00 pm EST, a wind gust of 32.7 mph
was recorded, which was subsequently followed by rain.

Raptor Observations:
A late Broad-winged Hawk flew past the tower at close range. More adult
Sharp-shined Hawks are being noted compared to mostly immature birds
earlier in the season.
A resident adult Bald Eagle was observed plucking an American Coot from the
marsh before heading away.
An immature Peregrine Falcon was observed just before the rain moved in for
the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
An adult male Canvasback and a House Wren are among the birds observed
today. Only 2 Red-winged Blackbirds were recorded, compared to many
yesterday. Lots of American Goldfinch were flying over today. Blue Jay
numbers continue to slow.

Blue Jays - 2,960
Monarchs - 2

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49324360

Predictions:
The winds have shifted to the northwest and are expected to continue all
day tomorrow. It will be a mainly sunny day, though cool temperatures in
the the morning and a high of 8 C. Tomorrow has the potential to be a great
day for raptor watching with these north winds that have arrived!

Subject: [birders] Reminder: OAS Field Trip Lake Erie Metropark, Sunday, October 21
Sunday, October 21, 2018, 8:00am-1:00pm, Lake Erie Metropark. Leader: Dave
Frye (<kestrel11dcf...>)

Lake Erie Metropark has a well-deserved reputation for having terrific bird
populations in all seasons of the year. OAS has made a point to visit this
great spot often (our group found a Golden Eagle migrating last fall) and
will be targeting both the nature trails as well as the shoreline areas
again on this visit. Meet in the Nature Center parking area (bathroom
facilities in the Marshlands Museum and Nature Center building are open
after 10). A Metroparks vehicle pass or daily entry fee will be needed for
this visit. Everyone is welcome.

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

Thank you,
Phil Bugosh
Oakland Audubon Society

Observers: Olga Klekner

Visitors:
3 Visitors made it to the tower today; Olga Klekner and 2 others for brief
visits.






Weather:
Moderate winds up to 18 mph from the southwest persisted for the morning.
The temperature was 9 C but felt much cooler with the biting wind. Cloud
cover was at 70% and increased throughout the day, though not reaching 100%
until the final hour. The wind shifted to the south and became much lighter
in the afternoon as temperatures reached a high of 14.4 C.

Raptor Observations:
An improvement from yesterday as more raptors were observed and at a much
closer distance. Still, there was not as much diversity in the Turkey
Vulture streams as there was a few days ago. A few migrating Bald Eagles
were seen. 10 Red-tailed Hawks and an adult male Northern Harrier were
observed today. Sharp-shinned Hawks and American Kestrel numbers increased
from yesterday. 2 Merlin's powered by the tower one after the other. An
adult Peregrine Falcon was observed late in the afternoon.

Non-raptor Observations:
Not as much activity surrounded the tower today compared with yesterday,
including less White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows. An Eastern Phoebe
and a Hermit Thrush were observed. Ring-billed Gulls were streaming up the
beach almost constantly all day. No American Crows were observed today,
compared to the many seen yesterday. Blue Jay numbers are decreasing from
what they were but are still being counted in fairly good numbers.

Blue Jays - 6,370

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49305081

Predictions:
The winds are expected to shift to the west in the early hours of the
morning and will continue for the rest of the day. It will be mainly sunny
in the morning, with the risk of showers in the afternoon and a high of 11
C.

Raptor Observations:
It was a very slow day for raptors passing over the tower. It seemed like
everything was far to the north. The Turkey Vultures could be seen
streaming along with a few buteos, but this was at the limit of 10X
binoculars in some cases and the limit of the scope in others. Only a few
dozen Sharp-shined Hawks were observed flying over. A Merlin flew by at
close distance. A few of the resident Bald Eagles and the Osprey were
hunting around.

Non-raptor Observations:
There was lots of other activity around the tower today. Many White-crowned
Sparrows have moved in, along with the White-throated Sparrows. A Hermit
Thrush was observed, 2 Carolina Wren, 2 Orange-crowned Warbler, a Nashville
Warbler and a few Palm Warblers. A juv. Black-crowned Night Heron was
observed. A few mammal species of note that were observed from the tower
today were the elusive North American beaver and 2 White-tailed deer.

Blue Jays - 4750
Monarch - 1

The bird life has been so slow in my backwoods that today I was delighted
to have a flyover of a white-breasted Cessna.

Visitors:
7 visitors made it to the tower today. Thanks for the help and good
company!


Weather:
Moderate winds were from the west northwest to begin the day. The
temperature was 8 C and cloud cover at 20%. Winds were from the northwest
from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST but returned to the west northwest. Wind
velocity decreased to light in the morning and early afternoon but became
strong by 2:00 pm EST with gusts of 22.3 mph recorded. Cloud cover
increased to 100% by 11:00 am EST, but gradually diminished to 60% in the
final hour. The temperature reached a high of 10 C at 1:00 pm EST.

Raptor Observations:
With the hint of north winds it seemed like many species were trying to
come through today. A good number of Red-tailed Hawks were flying over. 8
Red-shouldered Hawks were observed, most being adults. At least 3 adult
male Northern Harriers were observed, including one being harassed by a
Peregrine Falcon. Sharp-shinned Hawks continue to be seen in good numbers.

Non-raptor Observations:
A continuing first year male Baltimore Oriole was observed again today. A
House Wren was seen from above in an old nest. 2 Wilson's Snipe and 3
Greater Yellowlegs flew over. There was a notable absence of most Mute
Swans in the marsh today and the Gray Catbirds finally seem to be gone from
the bushes around the base of the tower.

Predictions:
Winds are expected from the northwest tonight and into tomorrow morning,
when at 10:00 am they will switch to the west for the rest of the day.
Sunny skies are predicted and a high of 9 C.

Birders and friends,

Please join us for the following free program Wednesday night. You don’t have to be a Washtenaw Audubon member to attend.

Wednesday, October 17, 7:30pm

Birding Borneo

Join Bryn Martin for yet another fabulous Washtenaw Audubon international field trip, to Borneo, the third largest island in the world, and home to one of Earth’s oldest rainforests. With 688 species of birds, including 59 endemics, and such interesting mammals as Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, and Bornean Gibbon, expect great diversity in wildlife.

Bryn Martin is an avid international birder, Washtenaw Audubon’s field trip coordinator, and teaches high school in Livonia.

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

Hope to see you tonight.

Been here in Albion for almost 2 months.  I have a few Chickadees,
Tufted Titmouse, Blue Jays, a pair of Downey's, a Red Bellied
Woodpecker, 2 or 3
White Breasted Nuthatches and had 2 hummingbirds till early Oct.  5 or 6
House Sparrows.  The occasional House Finch and about 30 all the time
Goldfinches going through thistle at an alarming rate:)
So, the usual suspects.  But this morning while standing next to a
feeder a Red Breasted Nuthatch zoomed in, very close.  Made me happy.
I don't expect much more variety than that, maybe I'll pick up a Pine
Siskin sometime.

Subject: Re: [birders] ailing cedar waxwing
I agree with Penny that the red in the bird's dropping could have been from eating red berries. I would also consider that the bird may have been drunk (so to speak) from eating fermented berries. I recall finding a robin just standing in a parking lot seeming completely unconcerned by my close presence. When I reached down to pick it up, just the light touch of my fingers startled the bird awake and it flew away with a typical robin protest call.

The red in the stool could be caused by eating berries.

Today I found a Cedar Waxwing standing on the lawn by my house (southern Lapeer County). It was quite alive with beautiful plumage and no apparent sign of injury, but made no response or attempt to move when I approached. Two hours later it was still standing in the same spot. I did notice a thin, watery stool that was milky white with dark red (blood?) streaks. Any thoughts on possible diseases?


Thanks,

Birders,
The suspect in the armed
robbery at Mary Beth Doyle Park was apprehended the same
day.  He is now in police custody.  It appears as
though this was an isolated incident, but of course, always
exercise caution when out in any park.

Birders,
The suspect in the armed
robbery at Mary Beth Doyle Park was apprehended the same
day.  He is now in police custody.  It appears as
though this was an isolated incident, but of course, always
exercise caution when out in any park. 

Best,

Observation start time: 07:00:00
Observation end time: 15:00:00
Total observation time: 8 hours

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
There were 7 visitors at the tower today.


Weather:
Gusty winds from the southwest continued for the second day in a row. Winds
were moderate to strong all day, through increased more in the afternoon.
Unlike yesterday, it was a beautiful sunny day with not a cloud recorded.
Temperatures began at 6.3 C and warmed to 11.5 C by the final hour.

Raptor Observations:
There was more activity today compared to yesterday at the tower. Good
numbers of Sharp-shinned Hawks and American Kestrels were observed today.
92 Sharpies were counted from 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST and 49 Kestrels were
counted in the 10:00 hour. Turkey Vultures began coming through around 9:00
am EST and continued for the rest of the day. 3 Red-tailed Hawks were
observed, including an adult and an immature captured, banded, and brought
to the tower for a nice comparison, then released. A Merlin and a Peregrine
Falcon were observed. Again, an Osprey was seen at different times
throughout the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
Many more non-raptor species were also flying through the skies today,
including American Goldfinch and a 2000 bird swarm of European Starlings.
Many Gadwall, American Wigeon, American Coot and a few other duck species
can be found throughout the marsh. A Hermit Thrush was observed today. More
Blue Jays than yesterday but as with most species, slowed down considerably
in the afternoon.

Blue Jays - 7670
Monarchs - 1

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49239248

Predictions:
The winds are expected to shift to the northwest around 10:00 am tomorrow
morning before switching to the west around noon, and then back to
northwest around 3:00 pm for the rest of the night. The day should begin
with a temperature around 5 C and warm to a high of 8 C, with a mix of sun
and clouds. Hopefully we will get some decent numbers and variety of
raptors with these north winds coming!

Subject: [birders] ailing Cedar Waxwing recap
Thank you to the many folks who replied to my post about the ailing Cedar Waxwing. Some gaps to my education have been filled and I'm relieved to hear that an infectious disease is unlikely.

Two causes were suggested multiple times: a window strike and inebriation (from overipe fruit/berries). Since the nearest window was 100 feet away with several intervening trees, a window strike, while not impossible, doesn't seem as plausible as being inebriated. As Penny pointed out, an over indulgence on fermented berries also offers an explanation as a source for the red streaks in the stool. Since white wines and lagers can ferment under 10 degrees celsius, the recent cool weather doesn't preclude fermentation.

I did check on the bird the following morning. It was gone with nary a feather left behind, so hopefully it has rejoined its flock with only a hangover as a consequence of a berry debauch.

Cheers, Bill.

Subject: Re: [birders] loss of life impacting all
How do we quell the will to kill?  I could chalk it up to a sunconscious response to human overcrowding that starts with the very young.  Has anyone ever observed creatures other than humans willfully killing masses of living things without eating them?  Sure, horses swat flies with their tails but will chimps pull the legs off a walking stick for fun or the wings off a fly just to see what happens as human children will (is it just human males by the way)?  When humans feel the desire to kill and destroy, it’s usually defenseless things that suffer the most.  Plants, trees and things that can’t fight back.  It’s self loathing come full circle.  The best thing we can try is teaching an appreciation for these things.  New rule...if you can’t create it, you can’t destroy it.

I don’t know how many of you are aware of this study.  It should be shaking everyone to the core, further strong proof our birds, butterflies, amphibians and a whole host of other critters are in very serious trouble.

Sunday, October 21, 2018, 8:00am-1:00pm, Lake Erie Metropark. Leader: Dave
Frye (<kestrel11dcf...>)

Lake Erie Metropark has a well-deserved reputation for having terrific bird
populations in all seasons of the year. OAS has made a point to visit this
great spot often (our group found a Golden Eagle migrating last fall) and
will be targeting both the nature trails as well as the shoreline areas
again on this visit. Meet in the Nature Center parking area (bathroom
facilities in the Marshlands Museum and Nature Center building are open
after 10). A Metroparks vehicle pass or daily entry fee will be needed for
this visit. Everyone is welcome.

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

Thank you,
Phil Bugosh
Oakland Audubon Society

The red in the stool could be caused by eating berries.

Birding Borneo

Join Bryn Martin for yet another fabulous Washtenaw Audubon international field trip, to Borneo, the third largest island in the world, and home to one of Earth’s oldest rainforests. With 688 species of birds, including 59 endemics, and such interesting mammals as Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, and Bornean Gibbon, expect great diversity in wildlife.

The suspect in the armed robbery at Mary Beth Doyle Park was apprehended the same day. He is now in police custody. It appears as though this was an isolated incident, but of course, always exercise caution when out in any park.

Birders,

Sorry for the tardy report. I've been behind on everything lately.

Yesterday (October 13), I banded a female Golden-winged Warbler at Lake St.
Clair Metropark. It is very late for this species, but last fall I banded
one there on September 24. My "new" banding location (since 2015) is
adjacent to the Meadow Loop on the nature trail.

We also had 5 Cackling Geese fly over in the company of several much larger
Canadas.

Subject: [birders] local scope stores
A couple of weeks ago someone mentioned Brain Storm in Suttons Bay as a source for scopes. I was up there anyway, so I stopped by. They have a good collection of astronomical scopes, but only a few birding ones. They Do carry the Opticron brand, which not many other stores do, and some Swarovskis.

Subject: [birders] Black swallowtail
The opinions I have received so far are that these are both black swallowtails. Apparently, the differences can be explained as variations; black swallowtails can have large orange spots and no blue on hindwings. These 2 hatched within a couple weeks of each other. Maybe they are hybrids after all. I am keeping this case open, if anyone else wants to weigh in. I’m no expert.

Numerous sightings from myself and numerous other observers in early March of this year from a very vocal bird."

Not as many American Kestrels were observed today. Many Sharp-shinned Hawks
were still coming over. More Northern Harriers were observed today
including a first year that was caught, banded and released. Many Turkey
Vultures were crossing in the distance, though not with the same frequency
as yesterday but seemed more concentrated. They did move closer in the
afternoon and a leucistic Turkey Vulture with an all white back and upper
wings was observed. Red-tailed Hawks were seen in good numbers and 2
immature Red-shouldered Hawks, one at a distance, one directly overhead.

Non-raptor Observations:
12 Ruddy Ducks were observed on the lake from the tower. A Common Loon was
seen flying overhead. A late Tennessee Warbler was observed today. Blue Jay

Visitors:
Many visitors were at the tower today for HMAMA Convention. Carolyn
Aoffman, Rich Convoy, Elizabeth Clark, Bethany Thorton, Mark & Julianne
Timmerman, Robert & Mary AnnRiggs, John Barnes, Jim McCoy and Bob Vodarek.
Also Bob Pettit, Paul Pratt, Andy Parsons among others who I know I am
still missing! A big thank you to everyone who helped make today a great
success!


Weather:
Strong to moderate west winds persisted through the day. Temperatures were
around 15 C all day. 100% cloud cover began the day but dissipated to about
50% at around 10:00 am EST and lasted for the rest of the day. Visibility
was fairly good at about 8 km and humidity was between 60 and 75%.

Raptor Observations:
American Kestrels were observed in good numbers throughout the day with an
average of more than one per minute from 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST.
Sharp-shinned Hawks were also observed in good numbers. Turkey Vultures
were streaming across almost constantly all day. Bald Eagles were seen
migrating. An Osprey was staying close and observed multiple times
throughout the day but another was passing through.

Non-raptor Observations:
It did not seem that there was too much activity around the base of the
tower today. No Red-winged Blackbirds were observed and only 2 European
Starling, a big difference from yesterday. It was also a very slow day for
Blue Jays. However, 10 Chimney Swift and a greater number of Tree Swallows
were observed flying over. More winter ducks are continuing to move in as
well as Kinglets.



Predictions:
Winds are expected from the northwest tonight and temperatures will be
cooler tomorrow with highs around 10 C. The winds are predicted to shift
tomorrow afternoon to the west. It should be a mostly sunny day with a few
clouds in the afternoon. Hopefully it will be another great day tomorrow
with the northern winds!

His presentation is entitled. 'Birding in the Rio Grande Valley'. Rick
plans to share photos of birds seen as well as where they can be found; He
certainly knows the area since spending winters in the valley since 2004.

Rick has been a birder for over 45 years. Since 2006, he's been
photographing/studying odonata. Other interests include mushrooms,
butterflies, moths, robber flies and any insect. Rick is a retired math

the Ohio Bird Records Committee 2012-2017 and is now currently serving on
the Records Committee of the Ohio Odonata Society.



We meet at Monroe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Road, Life
Science Building ( 'L' on west exterior), room 201. For ease of access,
there is an elevator as well as a second entrance to the classroom
containing no stairs.

Birders,
It's that time again!
The Big Sit is scheduled for Saturday, the 13th, at the usual site at Independence Lake.
For those unfamiliar with this annual event, check the Big Sit info on the Bird Watcher's Digest website.
Please come. Bring a chair, your enthusiasm, and refreshments.
We can use your help for any amount of time: come for an hour or so, or stay all day.
There's always room in our 19-foot circle for one more!
Roger Wykes and I will probably start an hour or so before sunrise and stay 'til around 4PM.
This is our 21st year of doing this event.
Hope to see you there.

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
7 visitors made it up the tower today but most only for short visits. Bob
Vodarek was with me for about 2 hours. Thanks for everyone's help!




Weather:
The morning began with very light winds from the south and a temperature of
19.4 C that rose to a high of 30.2 C at 1:00 pm EST. Cloud cover increased
throughout the day. The winds shifted to the southeast at 9:00 am EST.
Humidity remained above 80% until the final two hours of the day. Light
rain moved in for the final hour.

Raptor Observations:
A steady number of Sharp-shinned Hawks were coming over throughout the day
again. Only one Northern Harrier was observed today. 5 Broad-winged Hawks
and a Red-tailed hawk were observed today. Many Turkey Vultures were
observed again using the thermals in the distance. 9 American Kestrels, 2
Merlin and 2 Peregrine Falcon were observed including one adult PG that
caught and consumed a Blue Jay in a tree before proceeding west.

Non-raptor Observations:
There was more activity below the tower today compared to yesterday. A
Blue-headed and Philadelphia Vireo were observed. A Brown Thrasher and 7
species of warbler were also observed. Red-winged Blackbirds were still
coming over in good numbers in the morning. The morning began slow for Blue
Jays but numbers picked up quickly and did not stop for much of the day.

Blue Jays - 27 130
Monarchs - 8

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49103961

Predictions:
There is a chance of a thunderstorm here tonight. The winds will shift to
the west tonight and continue from the west tomorrow with mostly sunny
skies and cooler temperatures that are not expected to rise past 15 C.
Hopefully tomorrow we will have greater numbers of raptors still and more
diversity as well.

Subject: [birders] OT: Exercise caution when birding at Mary Beth Doyle Park
Birders,
A researcher and her assistant were held up at gunpoint in the woods at Mary Beth Doyle Park today, and had their wallets, cell phones and car keys stolen, and the assistant's car was stolen from the lot. Until police make headway in the case, it is best to stay in open areas of the park, or bird elsewhere.
Sorry for the disturbing news,

Juliet

Visitors:
Thanks for many visitors on a Thanksgiving Sunday.
- Christine Roarke and Raul Mitro visiting friends in Amherstburg.
- The Waterloo Ladies.
- Francine Gilbert and Jim Huffman from Kitchener. (Eat your heart out
Kitchener Birding Club.)
- And the many others that braved the weather and the climb to view the
marsh and distance Vultures. Thanks.


Weather:
Wind North 3-7 mph; Temperature hovered around 16 C; Humidity steady 83%;
Pressure 30.01 mm Hg; 100% cloud cover; No precipitation.

Raptor Observations:
As expected the flight started slowly with Vultures being dominate species
(1,926). Sharpies (166) became numberous with 16-25 during third and fifth
hour of count with 32, 40, 36, 5 in last hours. Kestrels were 2-17
throughout the day with individuals seen every hour for a total of 62
birds. The surprise was the Broad-winged Hawk numbers (60) with 3-18
spotted from hour 2 through hour 7.

A very good day of north winds giving us fair views of birds. TVs were very
high at times and BW enjoyed using the same 'weak' thermals.

Non-raptor Observations:
10,880 Blue Jays. (Currently over 310,000 Blue Jays tallied for the 2018
season!
One Ross's Goose sighted. 15 American Wigeon spotted and could be heard
calling with their high pitch whistle. Swifts (30) and Tree Swallows (60)
still in high numbers. Only one Palm and one Yellow-rumped Warblers
observed.

See eBird for further numbers of non-raptors:

https://ebird.org/canada/view/checklist/S49033814

Predictions:
Monday: Clearing in the morning. Fog patches dissipating in the morning.
High 26 C. Humidex 35. UV index 6 or high.

Subject: [birders] Warblers
Hi all,

We are in the Keweenaw for a few more days, and it’s been fascinating to see what I *think* are yellow rump warblers bouncing around our yard seemingly looking for bugs in the lawn. They have no fear of people, dogs, or cars. I’m not a good warbler watcher by any means, but their closeness has made it much easier.

And lots and lots of flickers all over!

A total of 11 Visitors were at the tower today, most for short visits. A
big thank you to Ed and Carol who enjoyed their last full day at the tower!


Weather:
It was a cool morning with some sun and clouds, a temperature of 8.1 C and

Not nearly as many raptors were observed today as compared to yesterday,
notably Sharp-shinned Hawks and American Kestrels. Around 12:00 pm EST and
lasting about 45 min, a large number of Turkey Vultures were observed with
a few Broad-winged Hawks mixed in. Northern Harriers were the next most
frequent species observed today.

Non-raptor Observations:
There was a very nice mix of summer and winter species around the tower
today. 10 different species of warblers were seen including a male Yellow
Warbler. There were many Golden and Ruby-crowned Kinglets and also some
Dark-eyed Junco and an Eastern Towhee. Canada Goose are beginning to be
seen in greater numbers in the sky. Zero Monarchs were observed today.

Blue Jays - 18 330
Monarchs - 0

Yes, if the same chimney is simply tuck-pointed and stabilized, the chances of the swifts continuing to use it is quite high. An alternate chimney....probably not very likely at all, according to past efforts in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Canada. We are currently evaluating for salvage of "their" chimney, and all we can do is wait for results as to what that might cost.

Is anyone really sure Chimney Swifts will use the existing chimney or some refurbished chimney if the surrounding structures are destroyed? I think I have my doubts about that. Why couldn't City Council have left the whole property basically untouched. We know Chimney Swifts use it in that condition.

Perhaps we should remember that the Ann Arbor City Council over the last several years has several times voted to endorse Development that has destroyed and degraded natural habitats within the City. They continue to push for more population and development both within Ann Arbor and the surrounding Washtenaw County Area. I think it would be good to temper our enthusiasm about the minor thing City Council has done or may have done with the Swifts.

Sally,


At this point the City needs to evaluate the chimney, and then give us a figure of what it would cost to save it, so it's premature to put up a Go Fund Me just yet. Know that your Washtenaw Audubon has already earmarked $5,000 towards this effort. Keep your checkbooks handy for future use

Just listened to Cathy’s interview. Thanks for the link, Juliet. Didn’t know about the Farmington chimney. Sounds like a great resource there.
I should mention the chimney in Tecumseh at the old mill east of town. I’ve watched the whirlwind of swifts entering the big chimney there several times. Even got some pictures in the dusk that my husband uses as part of his screen saver.

Please make sure the birders list learns about how to donate to the project of evaluation, repair and maintenance of the chimney. This is only the very first baby steps, very important first steps to be sure.

Let us know where to send donations dedicated to the Swifts Project.

Perhaps we should remember that the Ann Arbor City Council over the last several years has several times voted to endorse Development that has destroyed and degraded natural habitats within the City. They continue to push for more population and development both within Ann Arbor and the surrounding Washtenaw County Area. I think it would be good to temper our enthusiasm about the minor thing City Council has done or may have done with the Swifts.

Subject: RE: [birders] OT: First step in victory for the Chimney Swifts!
Just listened to Cathy’s interview. Thanks for the link, Juliet. Didn’t know about the Farmington chimney. Sounds like a great resource there.

I should mention the chimney in Tecumseh at the old mill east of town. I’ve watched the whirlwind of swifts entering the big chimney there several times. Even got some pictures in the dusk that my husband uses as part of his screen saver.



Please make sure the birders list learns about how to donate to the project of evaluation, repair and maintenance of the chimney. This is only the very first baby steps, very important first steps to be sure.



Let us know where to send donations dedicated to the Swifts Project.

Total observation time: 10 hours

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
A total of 10 visitors were at the tower today and most stayed for a number
of hours enjoying a great number of raptors flying over.


Weather:
The day began with moderate winds from the southwest with a temperature of
21.9 C and 75% cloud cover. At 8:00 am EST the winds switched to the west
and by 11:00 pm EST to the north and later the northeast. The winds
remained moderate to strong with gusts near 20 mph at times. Temperatures
fell throughout the day and cloud cover was at or near 100% but cleared in
the evening.

Raptor Observations:
A steady flow of raptor migrants were observed throughout the day after the
winds shifted. Turkey Vultures were observed in great numbers, as well as
American Kestrels and Sharp-shinned Hawks. 4 Peregrine Falcons were
observed today. A good number of Broad-winged Hawks were also observed.

Non-raptor Observations:
A noticeably change from a few days ago as many species are becoming more
sparse or not found at all, even in the morning with southern winds.

Blue Jays - 16 660
Monarchs - 12

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48935289

Predictions:
The winds are expected to continue from the northeast tonight and into
tomorrow morning, which could mean another great day of raptors
observations. Temperatures will be around 15 C. By late morning the winds
will shift to the east, and then the southeast by mid afternoon warming
things up, with the possibility of a few showers.

Is anyone really sure Chimney Swifts will use the existing chimney or some refurbished chimney if the surrounding structures are destroyed? I think I have my doubts about that. Why couldn't City Council have left the whole property basically untouched. We know Chimney Swifts use it in that condition.


Roger Kuhlman

Ann Arbor, Michigan


Perhaps we should remember that the Ann Arbor City Council over the last several years has several times voted to endorse Development that has destroyed and degraded natural habitats within the City. They continue to push for more population and development both within Ann Arbor and the surrounding Washtenaw County Area. I think it would be good to temper our enthusiasm about the minor thing City Council has done or may have done with the Swifts.

Subject: [birders] OT: Person with biology background needed for Ann Arbor's Greenbelt Advisory Commission
Hi, Birders,
Please see below an email from John Ramsburgh, a Greenbelt
Commissioner, which was forwarded to me by Stephanie Buttrey, another
Greenbelt Commissioner. I previously served on this commission also (and
was its chair). Note the prospective commissioner does not necessarily
need to be a resident of the city of Ann Arbor. If you are interested,
please follow up with Stephanie Buttrey, <sjbuttrey...>, she is cc'd
on this email.

Dear friends,

As some of you know, I've served the past five years on the Ann Arbor
Greenbelt Advisory Commission. The goal of Ann Arbor’s Greenbelt Program is
to protect open space, farmland, natural habitats, and the City’s source
waters. It is funded by the Open Space and Parkland Preservation Millage, a
30-year millage approved by Ann Arbor voters in 2003 that also funds the
acquisition of parklands for the City’s parks system.



https://www.a2gov.org/greenbelt/Pages/greenbelthome.aspx
<https://contactmonkey.com/api/v1/tracker?cm_session=ecd4b1c7-cae1-489d-8cf5-9112ef385b7c&cm_type=link&cm_link=b839e273-d243-4eab-a397-9db9866e9e19&cm_destination=https://www.a2gov.org/greenbelt/Pages/greenbelthome.aspx>



Serving on the Greenbelt Advisory Commission has been an absolute joy. Not
only has this program flourished as a means to support our rural
surroundings, the commission itself runs like a top. We meet for 90 minutes
(4:30-6 p.m.) on the first Thursday of each month in the Ann Arbor city
council chamber. We review voluntary applications by area landowners
seeking to join the Greenbelt. We pass on our recommendations to City
Council. We go home. This very modest service has helped preserve over
5,100 acres of farms and natural areas surrounding Ann Arbor, while adding
nearly 100 acres to our City park system.



So, why am I writing?



The City ordinance calls for representatives from various stakeholder
groups to serve on the Greenbelt, including a farmer, a representative from
real estate, and a biologist. Our biologist representative stepped down a
couple of months ago and we've been unable so far to fill her vacancy.



So, if you or anyone you know has a background in biology, botany, ecology,
or zoology, or experience in wildlife and natural resource management,
please consider joining our merry group of seven volunteer citizens. Among
other rewards, participating will restore your faith in democracy,
something we all might like to experience, even if just once a month! :-)



Please don't hesitate to follow up with me directly if you have questions
about what's entailed, and PLEASE feel free to forward this email to anyone
(living within Ann Arbor city limits) you think might be interested.

Kind regards,

John


Happy Birding,


DE

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
A total of 9 visitors were at the tower today at different times and at
least 1 person was with me for almost the whole day.


Weather:
The day began with light winds from the east northeast but soon switched to
the east, with 100% cloud cover and a temperature of 15.6 C. Around 9:00 am
EST the winds switched again to a southeasterly direction and remained so
throughout the day. Temperatures quickly rose to a high of 24 C. Visibility
was relatively good at about 9 km but decreased slightly throughout the day
as a haze developed on the horizon.

Raptor Observations:
It was another slow day for raptor migration. 1 Northern Harrier was seen,
2 Osprey, some Turkey Vultures and Sharp-shinned Hawks but not nearly as
many as usual, an American Kestrel, a Merlin, and 3 Peregrine Falcons
including a first year bird that was caught and banded. A local Red-tailed
Hawk was seen at different times throughout the day, as well as 3 Bald
Eagles, 2 adults and an immature bird.

Non-raptor Observations:
Blue Jay numbers picked up today compared to the last few days however most
of the activity was in the morning. Other species were coming through in
the morning too, including some flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds. European
Starlings were seen in great numbers for the second day in a row. Only a
few Chimney Swift were seen today but still lots of Tree Swallows. Not many
warblers were seen again today and generally there was not as much activity
as usual around the tower.

Blue Jays - 23 163
Monarchs - 27

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48914606

Predictions:
The winds are expected to continue from the south this evening and
overnight with a risk of thunderstorms in the early morning. However, by
8:00 am EST the rain should stop and winds are expected to shift to the
northwest. By approximately 11:00 am EST the winds are expected from the
north and will continue throughout the day with a mix of sun and cloud.
Hopefully raptor migration will pick up nicely, with us finally getting
some northern winds!

Great news! Do you think us folks living outside of the city should also thank the city council?

Fascinating Cathy.  An interesting parallel is how Purple Martins will pretty much nest in a shoe box or a milk jug on a fence post in Texas yet require/desire fancy gourds and houses on waterside properties up here in Michigan.  Maybe they feel if they put in the extra work to move farther north than others that effort should be rewarded.  More likely something to do with crowding and hierarchy.

There is some information athttp://www.chimneyswifts.org/Chaetura%20(VOL%2014)%202009.pdf
http://nc.audubon.org/sites/g/files/amh416/f/static_pages/attachments/chimney_swift_tower_recommendations_audubon_nc.pdfAlso I googled chimney swift tower design and got a lot of publications from different states with tower designs. It seems like your tower should be a good height, but are there other design elements that might make it less preferred? I'm guessing location is important and they may prefer chimneys in cities because it is warmer and there are fewer predators. 
Ralph W. Dexter at Kent State did many years of research on swifts nesting in chimneys on the campus, but I remember seeing an article about some artificial chimneys he constructed of wood. I couldn't find the article off hand, but it was probably in one of the bird banding journals.
Birds of North America says

Site Characteristics
From Fischer 1958, except as noted. Darkness and shelter from the elements are prime characteristics of nest sites. The shadier half of a silo, the darkest, highest peak inside a barn, and the darkest corner under a roof joist of a garage are typical.In air shafts on roofs at Kent State University in Ohio (Dexter 1969), average depth of nests from top of shaft was 6.7 m (range 1.7–16.2 m, n = 400); south and north walls were used most often (66% of 400 nests), but there were more shafts with the long axis facing in those directions. Even where shafts were 46 cm2, individuals chose north and south walls. No difference noted in preference of shaft diameter.In Kansas, chimney's average depth to nest was 3.0 m (range 1.1–5.1, n = 40), with no preference for wall direction. Nests never found in chimneys with a diameter of < 25 cm and nests in large diameter chimneys were positioned deeper in the chimney, perhaps to shield them from rain and or sun (CLC).Chimneys exposed to late-afternoon sun may produce temperatures that are much hotter than ambient. Nests usually below roof line, where it is a little cooler and shaded (CLC).

If Swift’s moved into chimneys after hollow trees disappeared, that must have happened long long ago.  It’s been a long time since the forests of eastern North America had an abundance of trees with hollow inside diameters of 12 to 24 inches at the 30 foot level.  Was there anything that large at your place those Swift’s might have been keeping their eyes on?

Your posts got me thinking, Janet and Fred.  A good thing.  For years, chimney swifts have swooped and dived over my back yard, surrounded by dying elms as well as invasives including box elder, buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle.  
This summer all were removed.  And for the most part, the swifts disappeared, with only an occasional one circling overhead.  That surprised and alarmed me, though perhaps because there are more openings in my back yard, other insects, not those swifts might eat, may be available.
Am wondering what others know about this and welcome your thoughts.

Subject: Re: [birders] How fake chinneys can help save birds
Your posts got me thinking, Janet and Fred. A good thing. For years,
chimney swifts have swooped and dived over my back yard, surrounded by
dying elms as well as invasives including box elder, buckthorn, privet and
honeysuckle.

This summer all were removed. And for the most part, the swifts
disappeared, with only an occasional one circling overhead. That surprised
and alarmed me, though perhaps because there are more openings in my back
yard, other insects, not those swifts might eat, may be available.

Am wondering what others know about this and welcome your thoughts.

Observers:

Visitors:
A total of 8 visitors were at the tower today.


Weather:
The day began warm at 20 C and hardly any winds coming from the south.
Cloud cover was 100% and visibility was relatively low. Winds soon
increased and switched to the southwest. Cloud cover remained at 100%
throughout most of the day with some light drizzle. Temperatures stayed
consistent for the day but the humidity levels rose. Began to clear a
little in the afternoon with more dark clouds right behind.

Raptor Observations:
Very slow day for raptors and it did not pick up throughout the day either.
It was the least amount of raptors I have seen in a day here yet.
Sharp-shinned Hawks were very slow coming over. An adult Peregrine Falcon
was seen, an immature female Coopers Hawk, two Osprey, and two Turkey
vultures and an American Kestrel were also seen today. Two adult Bald
Eagles were seen but one was going in the wrong direction. A Red-tailed
Hawk was also seen going the wrong direction.

Non-raptor Observations:
Many flocks of European Starlings were seen flying. There were not as many
warblers around as the past few days.
Chimney Swift and Tree Swallows continue to be seen in good numbers. Blue
Jay numbers increased from yesterday. Only 2 Monarchs were seen today.

Predictions:
Winds are expected from the north this evening and overnight and will
switch to the east sometime in the early morning. The winds are expected to
switch to the south around 9-10 am tomorrow morning and temperatures should
reach a high of 24 C with a mix of sun and cloud.

Please check the Wisconsin Working Group on Chimney Swifts on line. They are no longer even recommending replacement towers in northern climates because of poor success.

There is some information at
http://www.chimneyswifts.org/Chaetura%20(VOL%2014)%202009.pdf

http://nc.audubon.org/sites/g/files/amh416/f/static_pages/attachments/chimney_swift_tower_recommendations_audubon_nc.pdf
Also I googled chimney swift tower design and got a lot of publications from different states with tower designs. It seems like your tower should be a good height, but are there other design elements that might make it less preferred? I'm guessing location is important and they may prefer chimneys in cities because it is warmer and there are fewer predators.


Ralph W. Dexter at Kent State did many years of research on swifts nesting in chimneys on the campus, but I remember seeing an article about some artificial chimneys he constructed of wood. I couldn't find the article off hand, but it was probably in one of the bird banding journals.


Birds of North America says



Site Characteristics
From Fischer 1958, except as noted. Darkness and shelter from the elements are prime characteristics of nest sites. The shadier half of a silo, the darkest, highest peak inside a barn, and the darkest corner under a roof joist of a garage are typical.
In air shafts on roofs at Kent State University in Ohio (Dexter 1969), average depth of nests from top of shaft was 6.7 m (range 1.7–16.2 m, n = 400); south and north walls were used most often (66% of 400 nests), but there were more shafts with the long axis facing in those directions. Even where shafts were 46 cm2, individuals chose north and south walls. No difference noted in preference of shaft diameter.
In Kansas, chimney's average depth to nest was 3.0 m (range 1.1–5.1, n = 40), with no preference for wall direction. Nests never found in chimneys with a diameter of < 25 cm and nests in large diameter chimneys were positioned deeper in the chimney, perhaps to shield them from rain and or sun (CLC).
Chimneys exposed to late-afternoon sun may produce temperatures that are much hotter than ambient. Nests usually below roof line, where it is a little cooler and shaded (CLC).

I'm thrilled to announce that the Ann Arbor City Council has heard your voices, and voted unanimously to evaluate the chimney at 415 W. Washington for retention, even while other structures at the site are demolished. IF the chimney can be salvaged, and IF we can raise the funds to do necessary repairs, our beloved swifts will be safe in their historic roost. We've got plenty of hurdles ahead, but having the City's cooperation is huge. A well-timed thank you can do wonders to keep good will flowing....please use the Email Mayor and Council link on the below page to thank them (the meeting lasted into the early morning hours with more complicated agenda items, and they still stuck it out to vote on the Chimney Swift legislation). Please use the link below to send a short note of thanks:

Here's the link to the M-Live story this morning:
https://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2018/10/ann_arbor_to_study_saving_chim.html


Again, thank you all for responding on behalf of the swifts! Never doubt that you can change the world....you just did!

Subject: Re: [birders] How fake chinneys can help save birds
There is some information at
http://www.chimneyswifts.org/Chaetura%20(VOL%2014)%202009.pdf
http://nc.audubon.org/sites/g/files/amh416/f/static_pages/attachments/chimney_swift_tower_recommendations_audubon_nc.pdf
Also I googled chimney swift tower design and got a lot of publications
from different states with tower designs. It seems like your tower should
be a good height, but are there other design elements that might make it
less preferred? I'm guessing location is important and they may prefer
chimneys in cities because it is warmer and there are fewer predators.

Ralph W. Dexter at Kent State did many years of research on swifts nesting
in chimneys on the campus, but I remember seeing an article about some
artificial chimneys he constructed of wood. I couldn't find the article off
hand, but it was probably in one of the bird banding journals.

Birds of North America says

Site Characteristics

From Fischer 1958
<https://birdsna.org/Species-Account/bna/species/chiswi/references#REF30571>,
except as noted. Darkness and shelter from the elements are prime
characteristics of nest sites. The shadier half of a silo, the darkest,
highest peak inside a barn, and the darkest corner under a roof joist of a
garage are typical.

In air shafts on roofs at Kent State University in Ohio (Dexter 1969
<https://birdsna.org/Species-Account/bna/species/chiswi/references#REF30569>),
average depth of nests from top of shaft was 6.7 m (range 1.7–16.2 m, *n* =
400); south and north walls were used most often (66% of 400 nests), but
there were more shafts with the long axis facing in those directions. Even
where shafts were 46 cm2, individuals chose north and south walls. No
difference noted in preference of shaft diameter.

In Kansas, chimney's average depth to nest was 3.0 m (range 1.1–5.1, *n* =
40), with no preference for wall direction. Nests never found in chimneys
with a diameter of < 25 cm and nests in large diameter chimneys were
positioned deeper in the chimney, perhaps to shield them from rain and or
sun (CLC).

Chimneys exposed to late-afternoon sun may produce temperatures that are
much hotter than ambient. Nests usually below roof line, where it is a
little cooler and shaded (CLC).

If anyone knows of a “fake” chimney that Swift’s have taken to nesting or roosting in in Michigan that’s less than 20 feet tall, let me know.  They may take to lower things in other places but my sixteen-footer has remained unused since construction 15 years ago despite decent siting and occasional flybys and flyovers of Swift’s.  There are also no other suitable nesting or roosting opportunities within maybe four miles.  Also not much good foraging habitat nearby but come on...evidently they depend on clouds of insects blowing past an area at altitude much more than availability of insects at or near ground level in cities.  Very interesting birds those Swift’s.

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
A total of 13 visitors made it out to the tower today.


Weather:
The temperature remained at around 15 C all day with 100% cloud cover. The
day began with moderate winds from the northeast and dark skies to the
north. Based on the weather radar there was a line of showers just to the
north of our location. Around 9:00 am EST the winds switched to the north
and remained so for the rest of the day with wind gusts of up to 16 mph at
times. Visibility began to increase in the afternoon and it seemed like
things were trying to clear up, although they never really did.

Raptor Observations:
The showers to the north seemed to be blocking migration for the most part
in the morning as things were very slow. Some Sharp-shined Hawks were seen
but not nearly in the numbers as usual and also 2 Northern Harriers. Around
12:00 pm EST things began to pick up with some ketteling Turkey Vultures
and a few Broad-winged Hawks mixed in. For the next 4 hours, numbers and
diversity began to increase. An immature Red-shouldered Hawk was seen as
well as a few Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Coopers Hawks, Kestrels, a
Merlin, and more TV's, Broad-wings and Sharpies. Seemed to slow again
around 3:30 pm EST.

Non-raptor Observations:
A very slow day for Blue Jays and only saw 1 Monarch today. Warblers and
other passerines seemed to be around the base of the tower in decent
numbers in the morning. A Blue-headed Vireo was seen today. It seemed like
there were more White-throated Sparrows around today.
More ducks are beginning to appear from the north including Northern
Shoveler, American Wigeon, Northern Pintail, and Gadwall.

Blue Jays - 2 408
Monarchs - 1

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48872825

Predictions:
Showers and thunderstorms and expected all night tonight and through the
day tomorrow, although the possibility of percentage decreases throughout
the day. Winds are expected from the southwest tonight and tomorrow morning
and switching to western winds around 12:00pm EST with temperatures around
20 C.

Dick’s Sporting Goods seems to have Vortex in-store. Norman Camera (Grand

will have the best local selection. Best bet may be to hold out until the

By the way, if you haven’t seen your optometrist lately, I would do that

The closest place might be Pelee Wings if you are looking for the really
high-end optics. If is difficult for a local retailer to stock expensive
scopes.

Can anyone tell me what the name of this plant is? I’m pretty sure it’s from the onion family because of the stem.

There is a good rate of money exchange with Canada right now, but you would have to check to see what duty you would have to pay to bring it back to US. That is partly determined by how long you stay in Canada. Might be worthwhile.

Subject: Re: [birders] Local spotting scope retailer?
Jerry,

Thanks for this information. My current Kowa is an angled scope, which I
got because it is easier to share viewing with others on field trips,
though I have noticed that it is a bit harder to locate birds with it. I
would probably not prioritize digiscoping, but if there are any that have
an SLR adapter, as my Kowa currently does, that would be a point in favor
of that model or brand. Looking at all these models on-line, and reading
all the specifications, only gets me so far. There's no substitute for
looking through them all to see what I like, and I would prefer to give the
business to a local retailer instead of buying from the manufacturer
on-line.

Subject: Re: [birders] Local spotting scope retailer?
Thanks John, and to all who also emailed me privately. I was thinking about
going to Hawkfest, but I could not find any information on the Lake Erie
Metropark website whether or not they would have optics vendors there, and
I had not pre-registered so I could not attend. I get crowd claustrophobia
in busy malls during the holidays, and the same goes for the insanely
crowded "biggest week".

A few years ago, I bought my current tripod from Robert Hershberger, the
owner of Time & Optics near Millersburg, Ohio, when I was banding a Rufous
Hummingbird in the area. Maybe another will show up near there this fall :-)

I have not seen Mike Malone, owner of Pelee Wings, in several years and I
don't know what the pricing is like these days. It used to be that optics
were considerably more expensive in Canada than in the U.S. Maybe that has
changed.

Observers:

Visitors:
A few visitors to the tower today including a few people who were in town
for the OFO Convention this weekend, a couple from Cincinnati, and it was
Steven and Maryanne's last day here who visited from England. Thank you for
all your help!


Weather:
The morning began cool at around 10 C for the first 3 hours with moderate
winds from the northeast. There was 100% cloud cover and off and on light
rain. At 10:00 am EST the wind began to decrease, switched to the southeast
and temperatures quickly rose. Temperatures reached a high of 25 C at 12:00
pm EST still with 100% cloud cover, light south winds, and 76% humidity.

Raptor Observations:
A good number of of Sharp-shinned Hawks came through with the NE winds,
often behind a trail of Blue Jays. 3 Different species of falcon were seen
in the first hour. As the temperatures rose, many Turkey vultures began to
kettle along with some Broad-winged Hawks. The Sharpies continued coming
through as well but everything slowed down significantly in the afternoon.
A few Cooper's Hawks, Osprey, Red-tailed Hawk, Bald Eagle, and Northern
Harriers were also seen today.



Non-raptor Observations:
Blue Jays were arriving in great numbers today with over 30 000 seen in the
first 3 hours. They soon started to slow as the winds shifted. Many Tree
Swallows could be seen in the distance and Ring-billed Gulls dominated the
skies in the afternoon. A Rose-breasted Grosbeak was seen. Lots of Wilson's
and Yellow-Rumped Warblers were also seen today by those who were present.


Blue Jays - 38 100
Monarchs - 52

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48848232

Predictions:
A 60% chance of rain is forecast for tomorrow morning with cool
temperatures and winds again from the northeast. Things should clear by
late afternoon and winds will switch to an easterly direction. Hopefully
the northeast winds and some sun in the afternoon will produce some good
conditions for migrating raptors.

Subject: Re: [birders] Local spotting scope retailer?
Allen,
I'd suggest making a trip to Pelee Wings. They should have all the major
brands and you'd be able to compare there. The Kowa 883 and the Swarovski
ATX/STX modular scopes are highly regarded. I haven't had the chance to
review the new Zeiss offerings but got the feeling that they weren't
digiscoping-friendly (yes for smartphones, but no one has an adapter for
cameras). I also haven't seen the new Leica scope(s), either. I am thrilled
w/ my Swaro STX85 (straight) and have seen a remarkable improvement in
digiscoping results - I'm even hand-holding the scope w/ my Digidapter and
Sony a6300/Sigma 30mm/2.8 (effective focal length 1125mm) and getting
wonderful images (jerryjourdan2.blogspot.com). If you are trying to decide
between angled and straight I've opted for the straight as it is easier to
locate birds with it and digiscoping is easier.
Jerry

Locally? No, but the best time to shop optics is during festivals when the manufacturers all bring their lineup. Biggest week in May is probably the next big local festival. If you feel like making a trip to Amish country in Ohio, there's a good retailer there with birding optics inventory.

Everyone,

I am considering upgrading my spotting scope (I've had my curret Kowa for
more than 20 years), and was wondering if anyone knows of an optics seller
locally where I could go in and actually look at a variety of brands before
I decide which one to buy? I know that Cabelas has some, but I don't want
to go there...so maybe I'm out of luck? Any suggestions would be greatly
appreicated.

Visitors:
The OFO fieldtrip lead by Craig Evans included a trip to the Tower. Much
thanks for pointing out birds.

Dr. Dan Mennill’s ornithology class of 40 first-time birding students
joined members of HBMO on a tour of the hawk banding area, songbird banding
area, the hawk tower, and a bird walk within the conservation area. We
enjoyed their visit and questions while on the tower. Please come back any
time.



Weather:
With the wind shifting throughout the count period the temperature changed.
With southerly flow the temperature rose. In all it ranged 12.1 C to 18.0
C.

Also as the wind shifted the bird species and numbers also changed.

The sky remained clear all day and the barometric pressure remained
constant at 30.13 in of mercury.

Raptor Observations:
There were eight (8) species of raptor and Turkey Vultures sighted today.
Four species were multi-digited. TV=496, SS=107, BW=11, AK=16. The Turkey
Vulture number is highest this season and almost 500. A few late
Broad-wings reminded us of thermal usage as did the Turkey Vultures.

A good day to see a few raptors and be generally warm and with friends.

Non-raptor Observations:
The Ontario Federation of Ornithologists, OFO, are meeting in the area and
had a field trip to Holiday Beach. They were helpful in spotting all kinds
of birds.

Monarch Butterflies tallied at 17.
Blue Jays streamed all day. 40,131.
Some other birds of note; both Kinglets, Common Nighthawk, White-throated
Sparrow, N. Pintail, C. Swift.

To see the entire non-raptors go to:
https://ebird.org/canada/view/checklist/S48828499


Predictions:
Sunday showers in the morning 10 C; a mix of sun and clouds in the
afternoon with 20 C. Winds SE and E (15 km) in the AM with N and NE (20 km)
winds in the afternoon.

According to Birds of North America, for Hooded Warbler Phenology,
"Generally no song on wintering grounds, except infrequently in late Sep
(BJS). Males sing on breeding grounds from time of arrival in spring
through late summer. Males sing infrequently during postnuptual molt, but
more frequently again once molt is completed, before leaving breeding
grounds"
Sounds like this bird finished his post breeding molt and sang a bit before
migrating.
I have heard them singing in August while raising a second brood.
This is a really interesting observation, Bob.
Thanks for sharing it,

Thank you, Roger. It has already made a huge difference...two weeks ago, the swifts were not even on the radar, now they have legions of supporters. Thanks to all who are making this happen!

Sent my Council Members and the Mayor my email requesting protection for the 415 West Washington location. Don't know if it will make any difference but hope it does.

The very best way for A2 voters to be heard is to email their councilperson. This has worked very well so far, and we encourage anyone who has not done so to do it now. Even if you own a business in A2, you can shoot the emails out today and use your business address. This legislation the Council is voting on on Monday is the direct result of the many, many A2 voters who wrote in support of saving the chimney.

It’s logical that these limitations would be placed on meeting speakers, but it sure sounds less like a democracy than I would like to see.

Can people show up to LISTEN and lend their support to your statements by their PRESENCE if not by their words? Maybe with some kind of identifying name tags or props like binoculars and bird books or hats or some such “uniform”?? I’m not a resident of Ann Arbor and don’t feel I have the right as an outsider to stick my nose into their affairs, but I put this suggestion forward for those who ARE residents.

I need to retract the below "ask" for people to show up at the City Council meeting on this Mon, Oct 1. In my naiveté about all matters City Council, I did not realize that only a total of 10 pre-registered people can speak for 3 minutes on any of multiple pieces of legislation. I will register and speak for WAS on our issue. We need to leave the other 9 speaking slots open for sponsors of other issues that are on the agenda that same night. Just to refresh your memory, this Monday is the vote on whether to approve a piece of legislation that requires the City Administrator to consider protection of the Chimney Swifts in any demolition or development project that is proposed for 415 W. Washington. If you have not yet done so, please send a quick email to your councilpersonbefore Monday. It can be as simple as "I support the preservation of the chimney at 415 W. Washington for the Chimney Swifts". Sign with your name and address to establish A2 residency.



Use the following link to find email and phone numbers for your council person, or simply click "Email to Mayor and Council " on the link.

https://www.a2gov.org/departments/city-council/Pages/Home.aspx#boardscommissions .



When you contact your current councilperson, please also copy the Nov 2019 democratic nominees for your ward (listed below).



For Ward 1: <jeffhayner...>,

For Ward 2: <griswoldkj...>,

For Ward 4: <elizabethanelson...>,

For Ward 5: <aliforcouncil...>,



The City Council and Mayor need to hear that a significant number of its residents care about the Chimney Swifts roosting in the chimney. This is your chance to make a big difference with a small contribution of your time. Thank you so much!

Subject: (OT) CRITICAL: Chimney Swifts, City Council Meeting this Mon, Oct 1

Dear WAS members and conservation minded voters in Ann Arbor:



We need you again! Your letters of support have fallen on fertile ground, such that Council Member Anne Bannister, Ward One, and Mayor Taylor have co-sponsored legislation to consider the swifts and their needs going forward as development plans for 415 W. Washington are considered. This legislation will be voted on this Mon, Oct 1, at the City Council meeting. We need as many people as possible to show up for the public comment portion of this meeting before the vote. You can either make a comment on what the swifts mean to you, why you think they should be saved, or simply clap and respond when others make comments in support of the swifts. Again, my sense is that the City would like to cooperate, but they must hear a resounding YES to preservation of that chimney from A2 voters. We are working well with the City towards a just and ecologically sound solution....please, no disparaging remarks, we're looking for support for the Chimney Swifts and their chimney, not antagonism against the City. I've re-attached the Chimney Swift fact sheet for your review. The meeting will be held at Larcom City Hall, 301 E. Huron St, Second Floor, City Council Chambers, this Mon, Oct 1, at 7 pm.



Please plan to show up for the swifts! We've come so far in this effort to save that chimney, and we need you there on Monday! I will look forward to seeing many of you there.....

Total observation time: 7 hours

Official Counter: Craig Evans

Observers:

Visitors:
Many visitors came to the tower today, including an OFO group lead by Paul
Pratt.


Weather:
The day began with strong southwest winds, about 50% cloud cover and a
temperature of 15.5 C. The strong winds persisted for the first few hours
but calmed to moderate until the afternoon. Cloud cover decreased
throughout the day, with sunny skies and and a temperature of 20.5 C at
12:00 pm EST. At noon the wind calmed even more and switched to the south
and temperatures reached 23.5 C.

Raptor Observations:
The first few hours were relatively slow with the strong winds, but soon
picked up with a steady stream of Sharp-shinned Hawks coming in, along with
some Northern Harriers and Bald Eagles. A few American Kestrels came
through around mid-morning and so did a Peregrine Falcon flying with an
Osprey. A good number of Turkey Vultures came though as the temperature
started to rise. No Buteos were seen today.

Non-raptor Observations:
Did not see the first Blue Jays until 7:28 EST, then a steady stream came
through until about noon, then significantly slowed again. Mute Swans
continue to dominate the marsh and there are a good number of Mallards that
were counted as they took to the air.

Blue Jays - 15 300
Monarchs - 68

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48801101


Predictions:
Winds are expected from the northwest for a few hours tonight to cool
things off a little. Strong west winds are forecast again for tomorrow so
Buteo migration could be a little slow again. There could be a good chance
for some Peregrine Falcons again though. Hopefully we will still get some
nice surprises!

I also found a recording by Allan Chartier on xeno-canto (XC17111) that sounds quite similar. The intriguing question is, what is this bird doing singing at this time of year? All the other recordings from Michigan that I found (30 from Macaulay and 11 from xeno-canto) are from May to July.
