The past three weeks while being out running my owl banding station, we
have heard Tundra swans off and on. A few nights ago we had a minimum of
150 fly over, with the moon as the backdrop. It was magical.

Subject: road-killed Saw-whet Owl, Crawford Co.
Early this morning I was driving on Rt. 98 north of Little's Corners. I
passed a heap of feathers on the road. I nearly didn't stop, but on impulse
I turned around. I found a Northern Saw-whet Owl lying on the road, dead of
a broken neck. It was still warm, so it had died very recently. Amazing! And
I've never seen one alive!

Subject: Bald Eagle nests - Lancaster County
To add to the growing list of Bald Eagle nests in Pennsylvania, there is a
new nest on the Conestoga Creek at Boot Jack Road (Caernarvon Twp), just
east of the township maintenance building.

Easily seen from the road.

Also, on Spring Grove Road, it looks like a new nest is under construction
(last year's nest blew down).

But also, an immature eagle (totally brown) was sitting on the old nest
that had been abandoned two years ago... wishful thinking on his part?

Hi Pa Birders,

A flock of 20-30 Evening Grosbeaks has been fairly regular here at our feeders. Anyone is welcome to our driveway to view these beauties. (We have not seen any with bands or transmitters). You can email me for directions.

Also have some Pine Siskins and the regular visitors. (Hoping for Red-breasted Nuthatch and Redpolls...)

Good birding!

Subject: Re: York County Short-eared Owls
A pair of these Short-eared Owls came out to hunt the grasslands at the Hopewell Township Recreation area location at about 5 pm Tuesday evening, 11/24/2020. Pretty dark, but still enough light for some decent looks through the binoculars as they flew by a couple hundred feet out from the platform off Althouse School Road.

Saturday night at approx. 4:50 pm I had three Short-eared Owls at the grasslands at the Hopewell Township Recreation area. This area is located at the intersection of Plank and Althouse School Rd in southern York Co.
Almost dark, so not great looks but definitely SEO's.

The birding world lost another giant yesterday, Ned Brinkley passed away while on a birding trip. Most of you may know Ned as an editor of American Birds. I have known Ned close to 20 years, thanks to Mary Alice knowing Ned when he was a grad student at Cornell.

Here is the comment from Field Guides regarding Ned’s passing:

It is so hard to commit this to writing. We are deeply saddened to post here that we have lost a dear colleague and unfailing friend, sounding board, polymath, tireless team player, teacher, and fellow birder. Ned Brinkley died in southern Ecuador yesterday doing what he loved best: being in the field on a birding adventure. He was two-thirds of the way through a month-long energetic and peripatetic jaunt throughout Ecuador, and the day's goal was to seek one of the country's most charismatic specialties, the Jocotoco Antpitta. Early in the morning while on a trail, Ned, accompanied by a knowledgeable local person, did not feel well, and his condition apparently deteriorated rapidly. We do not yet know many of the details, but though paramedics were summoned, Ned passed away before he could be brought to a medical facility. Words cannot express our sense of loss for someone who was an integral part of Field Guides. We mourn for Ned, for his family and loved ones, and for the gaping hole this leaves in the fabric of the birding community into which he was so tightly woven.

Today at Mingo Creek Park in Washington County me and Joe Papp had two Evening Grosbeaks behind the observatory building feeding on berries on a vine in a deciduous tree I could not identify. We watched them for fifteen minutes as they foraged and intermittently vocalized.

I also will miss Art very much. We was a good friend. We took a number of trips together, often with others from the PA birding world. Yes he could be a bit gruff at times but was always honest and a decent, thoughtful person. And a very funny guy. Art was one of those folks who was a great travel companion.

We made several trips to Ontario in cold winters to see those northern winter specialties. In 2014 and 2015 we visited Costa Rica and Arizona. One of my favorite memories was of our encounter with a person dressed in an authentic Star Wars stormtrooper costume complete with a blaster. This was in Tombstone, Arizona just up the street from the OK Corral. Art took advantage of the photo op. Can't make this stuff up.

The last time I saw him was on our Rock Wren chase two years ago. I spoke with him a few weeks ago and he seemed to be doing well. I'd like to think that he's up there somewhere keeping watch over the flyways. My deepest condolences goes out to his family.

Caribbean Birds & Hurricanes: Responses, Resilience, & Conservation. 2020 has seen a very active hurricane season, and we've been wondering how birds have fared as storm after storm plowed across the Atlantic. It's not all doom and gloom; some species actually benefit over the long-term while others are not so fortunate. Please join us as we learn about the research and conservation efforts underway to face the challenges of climate changes. Dr. Joe Wunderle's interest in birds and conservation  began in junior high school when he participated in Christmas Bird Counts and other activities with the Wyncote Bird Club (now Wyncote Audubon). After a trip to the Maine Audubon camp, he earned a BS in biology at the University of Maine and graduate degrees in Ecology and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. He spent six years in Grenada studying the breeding biology and genetics of Bananaquits and was the director of the Canadian Junior College for Marine Biology in the Grenadines.He has taught zoology and tropical ecology at the North Caroline Sate University in Raleigh, the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica and the University of Puerto Rico. For 30 years, he conducted research on disturbance ecology with the US Forest Service's International Institute of Tropical Forestry, focusing on identifying conservation prescriptions for bird populations threatened by disturbances due to hurricanes, droughts, agriculture and selective logging. He recently co-authored a field guide to the natural history of The Bahamas and has authored or co-authored more than 100 articles on avian ecology. He is a founding member and past president of BirdsCaribbean and former presndent of the Neotropical Ornithological Society. In June, he became editor-in-chief of the Journal of Caribbean Ornithology, BirdsCaribbean's on-line, open-access journal.

Each morning, a flock of Pine Siskins arrives in the yard in varying
numbers. Today was the largest flock this year, and the largest flock ever
in our yard, 130. I believe there were more than that number, as they were
everywhere on the ground and on 2 feeders, but I'm certain of at least
130. Some photos are on ebird.

here was a message that his sister sent to me from a message I posted on
art's fb page. Hi Chad. I'm Art's sister. His passing was a shock. I
spoke with him the Sunday before and he was fine. Not sure of cause of
death. Most likely aneurysm or heart attack. His daughter is planning a
memorial sometime in late spring when it will hopefully be safer to
gather. She'd like something at one of the nature conservatories he was
involved in. I will post it on his page to get the word out. Thanks.

hello all

Our birding flock has lost another one, I just found out that Art
Schiavo passed away on 11/16. I don't have any details of what happened
or services, etc. I will post them if I find anything out. He was a big
crude at times, but our sense of humor lined up and we chased quite a
few birds when we both started out working on our lists. We had drifted
away the past few years, but I always considered him a friend.

Saturday night at approx. 4:50 pm I had three Short-eared Owls at the

Almost dark, so not great looks but definitely SEO's.

From: Dave DeReamus <becard...>
Subject: 38 Common Ravens, Northampton County and other points
As many of you know, Common Ravens have become a much more common sight,
particularly from the hawkwatches along the ridges. Yesterday, I was
birding at the Woodland Hills Preserve in southern Northampton County and
heard some ravens calling. When I looked up, I was surprised to see 38
Common Ravens! They found a thermal and, with very little flapping, circled
and gained altitude for a couple minutes before heading off in a southerly
direction. It was the most I have ever seen in one group.

Also there were lots of sparrows around that included a Fox, a
White-crowned, a few Swamp, several Fields, and many White-throateds and
Songs, plus a lone Pine Siskin.

The checklist and photos are at: https://ebird.org/checklist/S76523178



Mirroring the numbers of ravens are the numbers of Black Vultures, which
were a hotline bird in eastern PA as late as the 1980's. Their numbers have
shot up since then. Bald Eagle is another bird that has really increased in
numbers. Back in the 1970's, I believe there were only one or two nests in
the entire state! Lastly, Merlins have also increased, at least in
sightings. They are still an uncommon sight, but considering that back in
the mid-70's (at the end of the DDT era) they were one of the least recorded
raptors at Hawk Mountain, their sightings have definitely increased,
possibly due to their ability to adjust to somewhat more populated areas. I
have seen Merlins perched in trees and on telephone poles right along busy
highways, something that would have been a total surprise decades ago. So,
it's not all bad news out there.



Good birding,

Dave DeReamus

Sad news indeed. I too lost contact with Art but remember him well as
a gregarious and active IBA volunteer during my years with Audubon PA.
Art regularly monitored and on occasion located Long-eared Owls at
Hershey Special Habitat IBA. Mr. Red-Sox fan will be missed.

Subject: MONROE CO.-- 120 REDPOLLS, Possible HOARY
It's been 9 long years waiting to see my first local Monroe County Common Redpoll. I was rewarded with not one, but at least 120. One of them looks arguably good for a Hoary Redpoll. Many of those in the flock looked rather larger than I expected. When I first found them on the far side of the WTP in bad light with binocs, then the scope, I initially thought I had found a flock of waxwings.

Art was one of our early volunteers on the Ned Smith Center’s saw-whet owl banding project, and somewhere in my files I have a photo of him with a tiny owl in his big hands and an absolutely enormous smile on his face. Coming across that picture always makes me smile, too, and I was very sorry to get the news of his passing.

Thanks for letting us know, Chad. Art contacted me several years ago to ask if he could come see the koi pond and stream we had put in and we spent several hours hanging out in the yard. Makes me sad. I didn’t even know he was sick or maybe it was something more sudden. Hopefully, it wasn’t Covid.

Take care.

It is true - alien, aggressive, successful, 'coyote of the bird world'....

Watching the flocks ( mumurations) wheel, careen, plunge, hurtle.... it is sublime.

And I for one, never tire of the display.

Official Counter: Rick Morrissey

Observers: Jeff Hopkins, Rick Gaeta, Ron Kline

Visitors:
Just a few overnight hikers, all really nice, we enjoyed them sharing their
adventurous spirits.


Weather:
A pleasant, partly cloudy, sunny day with a low temperature of 44F and a
high temperature of 54F. Winds were WSW in the morning, 2-6 mph to start,
and then SW in the afternoon with winds dropping to 1-3 mph.

Raptor Observations:
Today's count was started by Ron Kline, PHD, aka Doctor Merlin. Thank you
Ron for all the Fridays you led this season as the lead counter, and all
the many years you coordinated the BOK Hawk Count flawlessly.

Bald Eagles (2): An adult pair at 1331 EST

Golden Eagle (1): 1123 EST (Adult)

Non-raptor Observations:
On my last count day of the season, the most significant non-related raptor
observation is that when long time raptor enthusiasts are gathered with
very low flight activity, I learn so much. The platform of the North
lookout is transformed into a stage, and each of the observers morph into
improvisational educators sharing knowledge about an array of topics I
never even heard about. I am left wondering if I could apply for CEU's for
an odd sort of certification of eclectic knowledge. Also, I think this
group could be on PBS to offer Netflix reviews and recommendations. For
the rest of this COVID year, my wife and I are set for TV viewing, fire up
the popcorn. Yes, it was that slow on BOK today, yet these days are some
of my favorite experiences in nature, albeit human nature.

Winter and Caroline Wrens, 2 Ravens, lots of empty skies.

Predictions:
Some sun in the morning with increasing clouds during the afternoon. High
58F, winds from the NW at 5mph but mostly light and variable.

Weather:
Cold this morning with the trail showing signs of a frozen ground. Groups
of leaves on the walk up were elevated from the ground itself; looked like
the water under them lifted them in the freeze. Temps 21-37. Light wind
in the morning rising to 6-7 mph in the afternoon from the S. Cloudy in
the morning becoming clear with a crisp blue sky in the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
BE(1): 0936i

Non-raptor Observations:
A lovely look of an adult red tail in the bowl today. Did a couple of
circles for us before peeling off and heading south. Really lovely views
of his obvious red shoulders, blue-grey wingtips, and boldly striped tail.
Always something magical to be seen on the mountain!

Subject: Clearfield County Rufous Hummingbird continues - Visitors welcome
The adult male rufous hummingbird continues to visit our feeders and things
have worked out very well with people using the bench we have set for
viewing him. He usually feeds for the first time around 7:00 am and visits
as often as every 5 - 10 minutes until the temperature warms up to about 45
degrees. After it warms, he gradually slows down to about once per hour
and continues until 3:30 or 4:00. If anyone is looking for an outdoor
socially distance diversion this weekend or over the Thanksgiving holiday
period feel free to email me at <pamerlins...> for the "protocol". I
have also attached pictures of the info to an eBird checklist for the
stakeout hotspot on 11/16.

Happy birding (and bird eating next Thursday)

Subject: Lehigh Co.. snowy owl -- postmortem report
Folks,

As many of you know, a snowy owl that had been reported in Bethlehem earlier this month was picked up Nov. 12 while non-responsive and died before it could reach a rehabber. Thanks to help from Matt Loyko and coordination by Ted Nichols, we were able to quickly get the carcass to Dr. Erica Miller at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Erica is also a senior research investigator on the new Wildlife Futures program, a cooperative venture between the PGC and Penn to understand and address wildlife health threats, and is part of the wildlife vet team at Project SNOWstorm to study snowy owl health.

Because there was a lot of discussion in the Lehigh Valley birding community about the owl’s condition and what might have caused its death, I wanted to share the results of the necropsy and initial lab tests that Erica and her colleagues performed.

The owl was a juvenile male, and extremely emaciated. There was some speculation it may have ingested poison, and while toxicology results did find trace amounts of rodenticide (which is the case these days with almost any raptor, I’m afraid), there was no evidence, such as internal bleeding, to suggest that rodenticides killed it. The bird did have a significant lesion on the brain that could have resulted from trauma like a collision, and an enlarged gall bladder. Erica and her team hope to learn more from the histopathology (tissue) and additional toxicology testing still to be done.

While the tracking work that we’ve done since 2013 through Project SNOWstorm has attracted the most attention, the other major aspect of our work has been this kind of investigation into the health of wild snowy owls. Our vet team, which besides Erica includes Dr. Cindy Driscoll of MD DNR, Dr. Sherrill Davison of Penn and Dr. Ellen Bronson of the Maryland Zoo, has necropsied more than 250 snowy owls and run lab work on blood and tissues from many other live birds caught for banding and tagging. It is by far the largest and most ambitious study of the health landscape for snowy owls in the world.

If you’re interested, you can follow our work at www.projectsnowstorm.org.

Subject: Re: Siskins vs goldfinches
Frank and all,
 I’ve had the same experience here in Schuylkill County. The majority of Pine Siskins have moved on so the Goldfinch numbers are back up to where they were earlier.
A small group of Purple Finches remain along with a manageable (no need for an extra 50# bag of black oil!) group of Siskins.
Evening Grosbeaks moved on, but it was a thrill to see so many. It's been years since 35  Evening Grosbeaks showed up here in Wayne Twp.  I don't have my records handy but it was back when Anne & Bob MacClay manned the Hawk Watch at Rte. 183.
I must admit that, although I'm thrilled to see more than a few Pine Siskins & Purple Finches, I'm especially happy to see an increase in Tufted Titmice and Chickadees. I presume the ones that visit the feeders daily are the same families that nested nearby.

There is still hope for Common Redpolls.
Good Birding,
Ann M. Liebner
Wayne Twp. Schuylkill Co.

I would only see a couple of goldfinches each day.

Now that the siskin flock has dwindled, the goldfinches are back in numbers.

Has anyone else seen this pattern?

Yes, we are seeing the same phenomenon in Bedford County. Now we see just 3 - 5 pine siskins mixed in a much bigger flock of goldfinches that number 25 - 30. Earlier in the fall we had up to 100 pine siskins and almost no goldfinches.

Shifts like this make backyard birding such an adventure!

Flight numbers of goldfinches have skyrocketed in Cape May and other locations, while siskins are much less prevalent. I had 50+ goldfinches fly over my yard a couple mornings ago, with only 1 siskin mixed in.

Based on eBird reports from the Great Lakes, redpolls are coming south in really large numbers. I saw a checklist from yesterday that had almost 1500 Common and 5+ Hoary Redpolls!

Good birding,
Paul Heveran

Subject: Siskins vs goldfinches
When my large flock (50+) of Pine Siskins moved in a few weeks ago, they
displaced my goldfinch flock (a couple dozen).

I would only see a couple of goldfinches each day.

Now that the siskin flock has dwindled, the goldfinches are back in numbers.

Has anyone else seen this pattern?

Subject: Saw Whet Owl in Rockefeller Center tree, Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers - Cumberland County
We are still seeing yellow bellied sapsuckers. What appeared to be 2
adult females were in the locust tree this week. Did not see the red
breasted nuthatch this week, but we've had regular visits at the suet
dough feeder for several weeks prior. He/she/they travel back and forth
from the Norway Spruce and the arborvitae.

Just saw the article on the Saw Whet Owl they rescued from the tree when
it was put up in Rockefeller Center. It apparently went 3 days without
food but appears to be doing fine at the rescue. I seem to recall
someone found (I think) a screech owl in their Christmas tree last year
or the year before. I'm assuming the owls must just stay in place
thinking they won't be discovered and before they know it the tree is
bundled up and the owl is trapped in the middle. I think the other owl
was rescued and was ok as well.

Subject: Pipits, etc., Koch property, Northampton County
There was a small flock, only 6 or 7, of American pipits in an alfalfa/timothy field next to the house this morning. I seldom get them, so they were nice to see. The cold windy weather has purple finches once again appearing at the feeders but I believe all of the siskins that were here have moved on. I could, of course, be wrong. Chickadees and titmice are constant at all the feeders.  The chickadees all look like black-capped's with big white wingbar markings, but I know better than to say that definitively. Other species here today other than the normal white-breasted nuthatches, goldfinches, and various woodpeckers included fox, white-crowned, white-throated, Savannah, field, swamp, and song sparrows and a ruby-crowned kinglet. I didn't see them today but there's been a flock of 10 or more eastern bluebirds around the fields and yard. An occasional sharpie and/or  Cooper's strafes the  feeding areas but usually goes away empty handed. A few days ago two immature northern harriers were working the bottom fields at the same time. And, for the record, I haven't had any evening grosbeaks but congrats to all who have seen them. Currently I'm constantly checking the birches in the yard hoping to see redpolls on the catkins.

Kim,
From what I hear now, both of these dates are incorrect. The Grove City count is not scheduled yet but may be Jan 2 or 3, the compiler has not decided which date

. Pleasantville is scheduled now for Jan 3.

The Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology is once again compiling a list
of all the Christmas Bird Counts held in PA, including the compiler's
name and contact info.   If the compiler's contact info has not changed
since last year, we have that info.  We do, however, need the dates for
the 2020-2021 season.  This information will appear in December's issue
of "The PSO Pileated."

Please email me (<bcoriole...>) if you know the dates of any
counts.  Thanks for your help.

1 Evening Grosbeak ( first I've ever seen!)

2 Great Horned Owls

Red-breasted Nuthatch

Golden-crowned Kinglets



Seems to be a larger number of Chickadees right now than I've seen in a
number of years.



Thanks to all who made suggestions about binocular repair. I was using
"binocular" as a generic term. It was actually a scope that fell onto
concrete and the zoom wasn't working but after looking around on the
internet, I took apart the eyepiece and fiddled around with it myself and,
right now, it's working. If that changes I will contact the manufacturer.

Subject: Project Feederwatch Down as well
The Cornell Lab's citizen science projects are in the final phase of migrating to a new database, and as part of the migration process, we will be taking the database servers offline for two days starting tomorrow. That means that the Your Data section of the Project FeederWatch website, as well as FeederWatch's mobile app will be down from 8:00 am EST Tuesday, November 17, through Wednesday, November 18. The outage will also impact several other FeederWatch web pages.

You can still count birds for FeederWatch. If you plan to count during the database outage, please keep track of your counts using a tally sheet<https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcornell.us2.list-manage.com%2Ftrack%2Fclick%3Fu%3Db35ddb671faf4a16c0ce32406%26id%3D3a2f2adf20%26e%3De5ce226fef&data=04%7C01%<7Cdsg4...>%7C09a13f3812e74176e0ce08d88a385197%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C637411321779921434%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=GcOziTJp0FcLnVBKvVfwGCD6711DLtO6qUs5Z8QMF0c%3D&reserved=0> and then you'll be able to enter your counts online once the data entry portal is back up on Thursday, November 19. There should be no noticeable changes to the FeederWatch website or mobile app functionality once the maintenance period is complete.

We apologize for any inconvenience this outage might cause. As always, thank you for supporting Project FeederWatch.

PA Birders,

Most eBirders have been aware of the upcoming temporary outage of eBird starting today. Most all Cornell Lab of Ornithology tools that require a login including Macaulay Library, Merlin Bird ID, and Birds of the World will also be temporarily unavailable to use during this time.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology continues to provide excellent FREE tools for learning about birds, their distribution, and conservation. This short time out is meant to upgrade these valuable resources by updating the database.

Please see this link to learn more info: https://ebird.org/news/database-update-november-17-19-maintenance <https://ebird.org/news/database-update-november-17-19-maintenance>

If you use the mobile app, it will still work for starting your checklists and filling them out. They will automatically save. You just will have to wait until after the maintenance is completed on Thursday, November 19th.


Good birding,

More clouds which should help viewing. Favorable nw winds with a slight
chance of a rain shower.
A slight chance of showers after 11am. Partly sunny, with a high near 47.
Northwest wind 5 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

void of passerines except for some dark-eyed juncos in the early afternoon.

7 ravens playing in the stiff wind today around the bowl, 5 Canada geese.

Early eagles were backdropped by the remaining pinks and oranges of the
sunrise. Lovely looks of these magnificent raptors.

Subject: A pair of Northern Harriers, etc. - MERCER COUNTY
It was nice to see a pair of Northern Harriers flying together over the
corn fields before entering the Lake Latonka area. The male was so white
underneath... I've never seen one so bright!

Lake Latonka had two Buffleheads, about half a dozen Common Mergansers, a
Pied-billed Grebe, a Hooded Merganser, and several large rafts of Ruddy
Ducks (totalling 72). There were a pair of adult Bald Eagles sitting next
to each other in a tree behind someone's empty, summer McMansion. A
Red-shouldered Hawk screamed at the exit.

Some back roads in Mercer near the Lake Latonka area netted 2 American
Kestrels, a Sharp-shinned Hawk, and 2 Red-tailed and 1 Red-shouldered Hawk.

Continuing at my feeders today were 8 Pine Siskins.

Happy birding,

Subject: Erie Bird Observatory Survey for Presque Isle
A Request from the Erie Bird Observatory
Did you bird Presque Isle State Park in September or October? If so, Erie Bird Observatory needs your help! EBO is collecting information about birding visits to Presque Isle State Park in Erie, Pennsylvania during the months of September and October, 2020. Your response will help us document the economic impact of birding on the region and assist in the development of services, infrastructure and facilities to enhance birders experiences. We are conducting this study as part of a larger program funded by a through DCNRs Community Conservation Partnerships Program.

The survey is confidential (and can be completed anonymously if you choose) and will take approximately 10 minutes of your time.

Please do include your email address if you would like to hear back about our study result!

We thank you for your participation in advance!

Subject: Townsend's Solitaire - Franklin County - Yes!
The Townsend's Solitaire at Caledonia State Park was present this AM
(11/15) and seen by a handful of birders.

It flew in just before 8 AM and perched on the solar water heater behind
the office. It then moved to the nearby junipers and fed once or twice,
before moving to one of the bare trees along the circle behind the office.

We also heard some fly-over Evening Grosbeaks, but they didn't come into
the feeders like they did on Friday.

Thanks again to Bob K. for finding and sharing the bird.

In November 2009 I was called out for an adult male rubythroat at a feeder about 10 miles north of where I live in southern Northampton County. It looked perfectly healthy and I  saw if several times until it left on the 17th. Also, a friend nearby had a female rubythroat in November one year. .  . Arlene Koch Easton, PA Northampton County <davilene...>

Visitors:
It was great to have a 'strong bench' of additional really expert observers
today, John Good; Rob Keith; Steve Hawk from Lehighton, and Michelle from
Alentown. Way to go Michelle who picked out the last two Golden Eagles from
'way out' over peak number 5, which gave us all a treat to follow these
raptors for about four minutes as they took their good old time to pass us
by. In between the raptors during the lulls, some really great stories.
These are just a small sample of the really good people of Bake Oven Knob's
North lookout.


Weather:
A mostly sunny, crisp November day. The low temperature was 38F, and the
high temperature of 44F was recorded in the early afternoon. As the
afternoon progressed, the temperature steadily went down to 42F at the end
of the count. Winds were WNW, fairly blustery at 5-10mph to start the
count, but by early afternoon winds were 1-3 mph.

Raptor Observations:
As the early morning shift of observers can concur, where were the birds?
Any birds would do? In the 10-11am hour, some really nice looks at two
adult Red Shouldered hawks. The next series of raptors were some far away
looks at a few Sharpshins followed by two eagles, one Bald and one Golden
Eagle with Retails and more Red Shouldered hawks starting to pick up near
the noon hour. The afternoon was basically Redtails and some really nice
looks at two juvenile Golden Eagles.

Bald Eagles (2): 1115 (Adut); 1246 (Immature)

Golden Eagles (5): 1158 (unaged); 1243 (Adult); 1359 (Juvenile); 1550
(Adult); 1604 (Juvenile)

Non-raptor Observations:
86 Canada goose; 8 Ravens, and 6 Loons

Predictions:
Cloudy with occasional rain in the afternoon. High 59F, with winds from
the SE at 10-20 mph. Chance of rain 100%, with rainfall totals of about
one quarter of an inch.

Alentown. Way to go Michelle who picked out the last two Golden Eagles from
'way out' over peak number 5, which gave us all a treat to follow these
raptors for about four minutes as they took their good old time to pass us
by. In between the raptors during the lulls, some really great stories.
These are just a small sample of the really good people of Bake Oven Knob's
North lookout.


Weather:
A mostly sunny, crisp November day. The low temperature was 38F, and the
high temperature of 44F was recorded in the early afternoon. As the
afternoon progressed, the temperature steadily went down to 42F at the end
of the count. Winds were WNW, fairly blustery at 5-10mph to start the
count, but by early afternoon winds were 1-3 mph.

Raptor Observations:
As the early morning shift of observers can concur, where were the birds?
Any birds would do? In the 10-11am hour, some really nice looks at two
adult Red Shouldered hawks. The next series of raptors were some far away
looks at a few Sharpshins followed by two eagles, one Bald and one Golden
Eagle with Retails and more Red Shouldered hawks starting to pick up near
the noon hour. The afternoon was basically Redtails and some really nice
looks at two juvenile Golden Eagles.

Bald Eagles (2): 1115 (Adut); 1246 (Immature)

Golden Eagles (5): 1158 (unaged); 1243 (Adult); 1359 (Juvenile); 1550
(Adult); 1604 (Juvenile)

Non-raptor Observations:
86 Canada goose; 8 Ravens, and 6 Loons

Predictions:
Cloudy with occasional rain in the afternoon. High 59F, with winds from
the SE at 10-20 mph. Chance of rain 100%, with rainfall totals of about
one quarter of an inch.

At home, 7 REDPOLLS, fly by. Redpolls love birch catkins. Unfortunately, I do not think this was a good year for catkins locally, so the redpolls may not stick around. I hope I'm wrong.

For items dated prior to the MBTA it is necessary to have a legal paper trail accompanying the item's documenting its history from point of origin forward. At least that's what was required with any donation of specimens/mounts etc. to the Vertebrate Museum at Shippensburg University when I was working there as part of my graduate assistantship. We currently do the same thing at Dickinson College.

I was happy to see the Townsend's Solitaire this afternoon at
Caledonia State Park, Franklin County.

During the nearly 5 1/2 hours I spent at Caledonia, I also saw
two Evening Grosbeaks at a feeder near the park office and
earlier heard a flyover Red Crossbill.

I posted photos of the TOSO and EVGR on my Flickr page:

It was truly a remarkable Friday the 13th in Franklin County.

Subject: Allegheny Co. - Tundra Swans
All,

A couple-few weeks ago, I'd posted that I was in our public parking lot in Bridgeville talking to a customer when I thought I had two Black Vultures.

Fast forward to ten minutes ago, and I was doing the same thing with the same customer, and very high overhead, 45 silent Tundra Swans were flying over. Just a sixth sense thing. Ran back home for my binocs and got back outside in time to relocate them and verify numbers.

Lots of robins headed towards Scott/Carnegie. I am assuming that they still roost there. Conservative estimate would be 600-800 birds in under ten minutes.

I also had a Merlin just across the county border in Washington County today, at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in McMurray. This was a very reliable (like, 100%) location in 2018-19 winter.

Cheers,

Ryan Tomazin - Bridgeville, PA

Caribbean Birds & Hurricanes: Responses, Resilience, & Conservation. 2020 has seen a very active hurricane season, and we've been wondering how birds have fared as storm after storm plowed across the Atlantic. It's not all doom and gloom; some species actually benefit over the long-term while others are not so fortunate. Please join us as we learn about the research and conservation efforts underway to face the challenges of climate changes. Dr. Joe Wunderle's interest in birds and conservation  began in junior high school when he participated in Christmas Bird Counts and other activities with the Wyncote Bird Club (now Wyncote Audubon). After a trip to the Maine Audubon camp, he earned a BS in biology at the University of Maine and graduate degrees in Ecology and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. He spent six years in Grenada studying the breeding biology and genetics of Bananaquits and was the director of the Canadian Junior College for Marine Biology in the Grenadines.He has taught zoology and tropical ecology at the North Caroline Sate University in Raleigh, the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica and the University of Puerto Rico. For 30 years, he conducted research on disturbance ecology with the US Forest Service's International Institute of Tropical Forestry, focusing on identifying conservation prescriptions for bird populations threatened by disturbances due to hurricanes, droughts, agriculture and selective logging. He recently co-authored a field guide to the natural history of The Bahamas and has authored or co-authored more than 100 articles on avian ecology. He is a founding member and past president of BirdsCaribbean and former presndent of the Neotropical Ornithological Society. In June, he became editor-in-chief of the Journal of Caribbean Ornithology, BirdsCaribbean's on-line, open-access journal.

Perhaps monitoring a nest box does not involve the take of birds or
feathers or nests. You just knock them to the ground and move on; no
possesion or harm as the nest is spent and the nestlings are dead. I would
like to hear what PGC and USFWS has to say about that situation.

There must be some waiver of the Act when it comes to monitoring nestboxes?
I've walked trails with PGC officers, cleaning out boxes on SGLs and Park Officials at Moraine.  Along with the nests, unhatched eggs, dead nestlings and adults often need removed.  Sadly, the mortality in boxes can be high sometimes.
Everyone knows to monitor boxes these activities are necessary.

I've seen antique items on e.g. the Antiques Road Show that have bird feathers as part of an item, e.g. antique clothing, etc.  I'm guessing these items were made before the 1918 law was adopted. What should happen to these antiques when they are discovered now?

Subject: Evening Grosbeaks! - Clearfield County

I was lucky to happen to look out my sliding glass doors this morning to see
4 Evening Grosbeaks! My mouth dropped open! So many people have been reporting them in PA that I was wondering if I would ever get any! There was
1 male with his harem of 3 females. I did not notice any bands. They were only here from 9:00 to 9:05 and had a sunflower chip snack before moving on.

This is a new yard bird for this location. I have lived here in the "country" for almost 27 years. I had tons of Evening Grosbeaks in the 80s when I lived in the town of DuBois.

One year there was a big flock of them in DuBois in the 80s that stayed at my house into May. They ate so many sunflower seeds that I was kind of anxious for them to leave. Little did I know that it would sadly be decades until I would see them again! :-(

Hello PA Birders,

This morning was packed with surprises as the rain ended at Walt Rd, Green
Lane Reservoir. Lots of Bonaparte's Gulls put on a show, as well as decent
numbers of common diving ducks. Brief appearances were put in by two
striking male Long-tailed Ducks and four very late Forster's Terns.
Shorebirds included a Greater Yellowlegs and a late Spotted Sandpiper.

I imagine many others are having a fine morning at their local water bodies.


Good birding,

Subject: Birding Club of Delaware County Zoom Meeting Wed Nov 11 7:30pm
All are invited to join with the Birding Club of Delaware County (BCDC) tomorrow night (Wed Nov 11 at 7:30PM) for a Zoom presentation on birding eastern Australia. If you are interested, email me directly for the Zoom info.

Presenters: Andy and Mariana Pesthy
Title: Birding Eastern Australia

Australia is well known for the many endemic species of birds and other wildlife unique to this continent. There are over 400 endemic bird species. Our trip in November 2017 covered several national parks and other wild lands in 20 days, from the tropical northeast, to Tasmania. We saw and photographed many of the fantastic birds and amazing animals.

This presentation combines photographs and video clips to bring you highlights of our Australian birding experience.

Mariana and Andy have been BCDC members for well over a decade and have traveled widely in their birding quest.

Subject: Re: binocular repair
Just wanted to relay my experience with Zeiss this past spring. Had a problem with the central focus wheel so I shipped them off to their Kentucky location in April. Within a week they emailed me to say they were forwarding them off to the Main factory in Germany as the repair was beyond their capabilities here in the states. Unfortunately Germany was in shutdown because of the Covid pandemic which delayed the repair. 3 months later I received the repaired binoculars with a new case and straps. There was no charge and the repair was successful. They did offer to send me replacement bins but I had a pair of Swaroskis so I declined. Seems maybe they got wind of the negative experiences and are trying to make amends.  Gary Becker, Newtown Square

My Zeiss experience was fantastic. They made a 33 year old bino that I bought in 1987 look and function brand new. As well, I bought a 7x42 Dialyt in terrible condition at an auction, sent it to Zeiss, and same result. Couldn’t be happier.

All,
The white bird with dark wings was seen again 11/9 and based on call and
shape is now believed to be a White-throated Sparrow. Good photos have not
yet been obtained to my knowledge.

However, an actual Snow Bunting was photographed at the base of the dam on
the rocks 11/9.

Thanks to Karin Isett for reporting both birds.

Since we are on the subject, does anyone know where to get a Leica Spotting Scope eyepiece repaired?
My scope was blown over in a vicious wind in New Jersey a few years ago and cracked the housing around the eyepiece. I've looked online but can't seem to find anything.

I have a pair of relatively inexpensive Vortex, which I believe have a lifetime warranty without registering, so no matter who owns them.  I had one of the eyepieces fall out of my pair, not sure why, but I called and then sent it for repair, which didn't seem would be difficult, but they sent me a new pair instead.  All for free. save maybe postage to send them the damaged one (can't remember that detail, but do remember being sorry they'd not fixed the old pair, as those could be focused much closer than the new one, to barely beyond my feet, great for butterflies, etc).

Weather:
Warm with sunny skies. Winds began very light out of the WNW, but shifted
to SE after a couple of hours and increased in intensity to 8-16 mph. The
temperature reached 19 C for a short time.

Raptor Observations:
There were 2 Bald Eagles, a Juvenile at 11:52, and an adult at 3:46. They
were both very low(slightly above eye level) just East of the ridge.
We also had 16 Golden Eagles, 14 of which were also very low and excellent
looks. Adults; 11:58,:11:13, 12:12, 12:13, 1:43, 2:05, 2:20, 2:21, 2:24,
2:25, 3:02, 4:09, 4:28, and 4:29. Sub-adult; 12:48 and 2:16. Most of them
were just to the East of ridge but a few were directly overhead. The very
low adult Golden at 2:24 had white tags on both wings near the shoulder.
We also had 14 Red-tails, a couple Northern Harriers, a Kestrel and 4
TUrkey Vultures. Non-migrating we had 3 Red-tails and 7 Turkey Vultues.
Almost all of the birds were very good looks.

Denise,
With the exception of ZEISS, most binocular companies will stand behind their product and give better quality service for the best price.  I would recommend contacting the manufacturer and give them an outline of the defect and see what they have to say?
I have a pair of SWAROSKI 8.5 x 42, which, last spring, I carelessly, let slide off the dashboard of our car and knocked out the right side focus while we were in Costa Rica.  The company rep, Alex, LENT me a pair, since all mail and  post flights were curtailed due to virus. When I got home recently, Swarovski repaired them under warranty, although the fault was mine, and express mailed them so I will have them in time to depart for Cape May soon; all without costing a penny.
My wife's LEICA 8 x 42 had a similar problem.  Leica had a problem getting parts so gave her a new pair.
Now those are class acts from class companies.
Contrasting -- my ZEISS binoculars were in their case, in the closet, and the focus wheel froze; without any trauma, bounce, salt water, heat, cold, etc.  The company refuses to address the problem, citing "fungi contamination,"  and offered $100 off a new pair!  I replied there wasn't anything extraterrestrial or lethal, nor nothing amiss on my part? 

They have stonewalled.
I will be suing them.
My conclusion -- buy the best instrument your budget will suit, but take great care on how the company treats you AFTER you fork over your hard earned dollars.  These are not ming vases in museums, but technical instruments that get a lot of trial in the field.  Service, just like for your car is a very important element in the long run.  So go back to the manufacturer.

Turkey Vulture - high report 70 11/4 They were all sitting on the dam tower
and rocks at the base of the dam. Many continue. I was told they were
attracted to many dead large catfish along the lake edge.

10 sparrow species:
Chipping Sparrow - high report 2 11/1
1 White-crowned Sparrow 11/1, 11/3
1 Vesper Sparrow 11/4 photo Corn field at Sailor's Point
Savannah Sparrow - high report 15 11/4
1 E. Towhee - 11/1, 11/5
Yellow-rumped Warbler - high report 6 11/6 (only warbler reported this week)

A black and white bird has been reported three times over the last month or
more as a breeding plumage Snow Bunting. The species should be in winter
plumage two or more months ago per Sibley. So, I suspect a leucistic bird
with white body but retaining black wings. The last report was 11/7 near
the gravel lot east of Old Limekiln Rd. at the east end of Creek Rd. It was
feeding on goldenrod. I am reporting hoping the many park regular
photographers might try to find it and get a picture.

Thanks to all who report their sightings.

Observation start time: 07:30:00
Observation end time: 15:45:00
Total observation time: 8.25 hours

Official Counter: Rick Morrissey

Observers: Ed Wanamaker, Mike Duda

Visitors:
An outstanding extended family came to the North lookout today, ready for
migration action. Such a pleasure to meet Paula and Vlad from Sugarloaf,
Pa, and Mike Duda and his daughter Zaryana from Lehighton, Pa. Mike is a
modest man but I believe I heard he is a direct descendant of a Polish
King.


Weather:
Mostly sunny yet hazy, with a low temperature of 51F at 0730, and a high
temperature of 64F at 1300. The strongest winds of the day were in the
morning at 4-7 mph generally from the WNW, with decreasing Westerly winds
throughout the day to 0-2 mph at the end of the count.

Raptor Observations:
There were zero raptors in the air for the first 3 and a half hours of the
count, then just two immature Red Shouldered hawks by noon. With WNW winds
early in the morning, the place to count was logically from the North
lookout. In the afternoon as the winds shifted to light West winds,
observation was very challenging as the heat of the day had the raptors
very high in a cloudless blue sky and flying over the South lookout. The
few eagles counted were only seen because they happened to be in kettles of
Black and Turkey vultures, or the Golden Eagle that was being chased by a
loud crow otherwise I may not have seen any eagles. Did we miss some
raptors? I don't think so, I think we missed a lot.

We had two very high Adult Bald Eagles flying from West to East that were
heard before being seen, almost as if they were arguing back and forth.
Their squawking then made sense when they intercepted a third Adult Bald
Eagle which eventually flew Southwest and was counted. The 'arguing' Bald
Eagle pair later returned, high over the bowl, locking talons, so I guess
they made up but again they flew East high over peak #1 and were not
counted a second time!

Golden Eagles (3): 1233 (Juvenile), 1233 (Juvenile), 1526 (Adult)

Bald Eagle (1): 1420 (Adult)

Non-raptor Observations:
Lots a black capped chickadees, American Robins eating berries, and four
Ravens. 'No see ups' hatched again, this is November, correct?

Predictions:
Sunny, with near record high temperature of 74F. SW winds light and
variable.

The rufous hummingbird gave people great views today. It continues to
visit all day from around 6:30 am till 4:00 pm. It's feedings were much
more frequent in the morning. Till about 10:00 visits were 10 - 15 minutes
apart. From there till 1:00 they gradually slowed to about every 40
minutes. Then for the rest of the afternoon they were about an hour apart.
Please email me at <pamerlins...> for directions. If anyone is

The following were seen on the morning bird walk from the Sliver Lake Nature Center located in Bristol Pa
