Subject: [labird] Crowley Wastewater Treatment Facility Visits
All,

I visited Crowley Wastewater Facility today ad was told that to visit one can’t just drop by & sign in. I had previously visited there when that was sufficient. I was told in a cordial way by Tim Cradeur that one needs to contact the facility at least a day in advance to make sure that the day a birder plans to visit, that personnel are not out on the levees. This seems to be due to the Covid pandemic. They were not on the levees today and I was allowed to bird. He gave me a business card which is attached and asked I spread the word. If everybody already knows this, I take it all back.

In 1986, I encountered a large number of evening grosbeaks in central Louisiana. They were feeding on red maple seeds so it must have been late winter/early spring.

Subject: Re: [labird] Red-necked Grebe Persists at Kincaid Lake 1/13/21
Red-necked Grebe was still there at 12:30 on 01/16/21. I accessed the
east end of the dam using the dirt road off of Messina Rd per prior emails.
After a bit of searching I finally located it just to the east of the
eastern most duck blind, so it was pretty far out there. The fact that it
was associating with an Eared Grebe ( could have been a Horned Grebe) made
the comparisons and the ID fairly painless. I did see 2 Horned Grebes much
closer to shore and a Pied-billed Grebe as well. Lots of Buffleheads and
Ruddy Ducks and decoys.
Stopped by the Grand Prairie Rest area on the way up and back as
someone had recently reported a Brown-crested Flycatcher there. If one had
been there it's probably been chased off by a very aggressive Mockingbird
that was actually chasing off Yellow-rumped Warblers. There were a
surprisingly large number of Redhead ducks - approx 25.

If memory serves, the snowstorm passing today to our north is not positioned too differently than the one that immediately preceded James's sighting on the 3rd- maybe push some down for the weekend.

Hey All,

I was fortunate enough to see the female Evening Grosbeak in Oxford, MS a week or so ago. She stopped coming to the feeders a few days ago. Like Paul, I have been watching the feeders intently for them. After this discussion, I will not give up the watch.

I live in Starkville, which is ca. 15 miles north of the Noxubee NWR.
Joseph Kennedy's comments about seeing the grosbeaks at past Noxubee CBCs piqued my interest. My friend Terry Schiefer has compiled that count for the last 34 years, and he provided the following abbreviated summary:

The Noxubee CBC recorded Evening Grosbeaks in 1971, 1972 (count week),
1973 (count week) 1977, 1983 and 1986. The 1971-1977 birds could have been at feeders in Starkville since this is the time period when they mistakenly used a 15 mile radius circle instead of a 15 mile diameter circle. The
1983 and 1986 sightings were most likely at Julia Broyles feeders at the end of Oktoc Road. On the 1983 count there were 174 Evening Grosbeaks reported!

Terry also relayed the following:

Leif Anderson is reporting multiple flocks of Red Crossbills in Arkansas in the Ozark National Forest north of Hector, mostly in the AM getting grit from roads. Each flock consists of 40-70 birds.


So maybe both species will still flood parts of Mississippi and Louisiana?
It would be nice to see Ecening Grosbeaks and Red Crossbills in abundance.

Sincerrly,

Jeff Harris

Back when the grosbeaks reached the north shore in numbers, they did a good bit of tracking with banded birds as many were banded at feeders. Apparently the birds moved down the Appalachians and then spread west. We had them on a CBC trip to Noxubee Refuge before they reached LA. They retraced their arc route going back north rather then flying direct so places like iowa and Illinois missed them. This was just before the great spruce budworm crash which affected the grosbeaks, purple finches and the specialist wood warblers all of which are increasing with the current bloom of budworms.

Agreed on the fact that the season is far from over. Check out wind conditions happening in the plains/Midwest today and consider what these winds could do for us in terms of birds, Not sure how much effect it would have on conifer species like EVGR, but I’m still hopeful. http://hint.fm/wind/

Paul et al,

I agree with David. The *1996* occurrence of which I am aware was in late
March, into April. I arrived in mid afternoon and they were not present.
Stayed until dark but still they were a no show. Then, there was a light
snow overnight and voila, *EVENING GROSBEAKS*.

To hope for this species in New Orleans is pure folly, but I just got
another large sack of sunflower seed! I can still recall being ridiculed
for reporting a Calliope Hummingbird from Reserve in 1982 but now such a
report doesn't even merit a smirk! In 2012, we banded 4 of those tiny
sprites in one session at a single site in LaPlace.

In any case this is a really strange season - never give up hope!

Subject: [labird] Kincaid Reservoir eBird Reports
Good Evening,

If you go to Kincaid Reservoir looking for the Red-necked Grebe, please know that the lake itself is an eBird Hotspot identified, as best I recall as Kisatchie NF - Kincaid Reservoir (maybe lake?). I encourage people who have entered anything else for the site to change the location to Kisatchie NF - Kincaid Reservoir.

Thank you,

Jay Huner

Subject: Re: [labird] Evening Grosbeak disappointment?
David, All,

         The possibility of later migrants sounds encouraging. My
biggest hurdle against expecting a late rush is the lack of good flocks
nearby (if eBird is any guide). There have been a few sightings in
Arkansas and Missouri over the fall-winter, but nothing major. There are
better numbers in Tennessee, but in mountainous areas. It seems that if
there were good numbers in the woods, there would be more detections to
our north. If there's a late rush--and I hope there is--it seems as
though it will have to be from much further north, if conifer seed crops
get depleted.

          Of course, it only takes one...

Knocking on wood,

Paul Conover

You are giving up too soon. If they make it in numbers, it will be later. Here is the American Birds report from 1984:

Evening Grosbeaks were also well distributed: up to 450 at Greenwell Springs, E. Baton Rouge Jan. 22-May 1 (Mr. & Ms. MF, BC, m.ob.) and in other places in the Baton Rouge area; at Midway, Santa Rosa, Fla., one Apr. 30-May 7 (B & CEE, A & TZ, MC); Hartselle, Ala., a peak of 50 on Mar. 26 (RW); at Muscle Shoals, last one May 5 (GP); hundreds around Birmingham through May 1; and in Tennessee, late ones in Nashville May 14 (CRD) and in South Tunnel, Sumner, May 16 (BHa).

The huge flock at Greenwell Springs has an early date of January 22, and that is the earliest report in the region.

Chin up dude.

Labird,

        The invasion is certainly in progress for Pine Siskins and Purple Finches, but I'm running out of hope that Evening Grosbeaks will be with them this winter. Looking at records for the new year on eBird, the closest (and southernmost in the East) pin is from NW Mississippi.

        Perhaps there are some around that are out there living off the natch on tree seeds, but with so many buffets of bird feeders around, it seems odd that none have been reported from yards yet.

        I'm wondering if the early reports of Evening Grosbeak south of their recent winter range were birds that slightly overshot their intended destination like our early burst of Red-breasted Nuthatches that gave us hope of an invasion and then faded.

        I'm still hoping that I'll look out the window some morning soon to see monster goldfinches with huge beaks on my feeders, but I'm losing optimism. Any words of wisdom or explanations as to why I should keep the faith would be welcome.

Subject: [labird] Birding 101 BootCamps north LA
Hello LABIRD!

Need your help with suggestions.

I'm thinking about doing some Birding 101 Boot Camps in north Louisiana.
Basically, I'll take the Birding Basics classes that I've been doing and
compress it down to a Sat + Sunday class. What I'll need is a location for
the lecture portion of the class...which means a room large enough that 12
masked people can sit in and comfortably distance themselves but all see a
screen. Ideally it should also be a place to go birding as we'll do bird
walks as a part of the class on both days. We could travel to a nearby
location for the birding portion if need be.

I talked with John Dillon about this and we agreed that Red River and Black
Bayou Lake NWR's might be ideal, but neither of the visitor centers are
open. A library might work if there is a large enough meeting room
available and the hours of operation are compatible.

If anyone has any ideas, please contact me OFF LIST at <seejanebird...>
.

I appreciate any input!

Thanks,
Jane

From: Toddy Guidry <guidrys...>
Subject: [labird] Palmetto Island CBC results
The 5th running of the Palmetto Island CBC was held January 5 2021. The
count circle is centered at Palmetto Island State Park in Vermilion Parish.

9 groups/areas, 29 individuals.

Pending minor adjustments, the count total this year was 154 species, a
little higher than the 5 year average of 151 and the 5 year total count is
now 185 species.

The count circle is in an unique area of Louisiana that is an intersection
of major terrain trends. The circle includes bottomland hardwoods from old
Vermilion/Mississippi River 'meanderings' , coastal prairies, agricultural
fields, 'urban' Abbeville down to the Cameron like industrial port of
Intracoastal City. Add to that a boat-access only area of freshwater marsh
south of Erath and Delcambre and a few private access, WRP and large refuge
like properties and its easy to see why the species counts can be so high.

As is typical, we don't get a lot of vagrant/bold-faced species, but we just
don't get many 'misses'.

However, the high species count is somewhat misleading this year, as the
overall quantities were significantly down, especially in the southern half
of the circle. Intracoastal City had 4-5 feet of water on the highway from
Hurricane Delta and it showed in lower numbers for waterfowl, shorebirds and
sparrows. Waterfowl numbers were 6500 compared to 30,000 last year! Total
sparrow numbers down 30% and except for killdeer, shorebirds were down 25%.
Interestingly, gulls were up significantly, especially in the northern part
of the circle. I think this is a function of being closer to the city dump
and having good coverage

New to the list: Prairie Warbler, Clay Colored Sparrow

Best of the rest: 15 species of waterfowl(albeit low totals), 15 birds of
prey, Purple Finch, Pine Siskin, Painted Bunting, Northern Waterthrush, B-W
Warbler, all expected woodland birds, 4 species of Hummingbirds

Worst misses: Glossy Ibis(again), Wilson's Warbler, Lincoln's Sparrow,
Rusty Blackbird, only 1400 geese compared to 20000 last year.

record high counts of note: Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks(2000), Neotropic
Cormorant(1353), DC Cormorant(509), anhinga(58), White Pelican(900),
Coot(1853), killdeer(1900), Western Sandpiper(153), Laughing, Herring and
Ring Billed Gulls(>4000), Forster's tern(281), Downy Woodpecker(47),
Vermilion Flycather(9),B-G Gnatcatcher(227), Goldfinch(197), Pine Siskin(10)

cool bird of the day: Mac and I found a creamy white leucistic BW teal in
the Intracoastal city area, photos available.

CBOTD#2 - Dave, Kyle, Bill and Chloe were watching a located eagle nest when
the male caught a fish in the Vermilion River and brought it up to the
female on the nest! Sha...

if anyone would like to see the entire workbook, feel free to email me
offlist, happy to send.

Special thanks to the great birders who gave their day: Mac Myers, Angela
Trahan, Patti Holland, Dave Patton, Kyle Patton, Bill Vermilion, Chloe
Vermilion, Rob Dobbs, Andy Form, Judge Edwards, Elizabeth Edwards, Phillip

Subject: Re: [labird] Creole CBC Summary
For what it's worth, Shrikes did show a spike in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans in the 2nd (or 3rd- memory fades) winter after Katrina, as did Red-tails and Kestrels. There was a pretty impressive density of raptors there for one winter especially, which I interpreted as response to a spike in rodents. It was not a permanent increase for the predators however.

Yes, thanks for the report and for organizing and participating in the
count. To me, the drop in shrike numbers is particularly disturbing. As
the species continues to disappear inland, the coastal zone had become
somewhat of a refugium for shrikes. Hopefully, they will come back
stronger than ever in that area.

The Red-necked Grebe was found this morning Way The Heck Out There in the lake. Two groups, one led by your reporter and the other by David Booth, viewed the bird from the east side of the lake spillway. David Booth takes the honors for finding the bird more or less between and beyond the two duck blinds off the dam. It was not associated with other birds. Time was around 9 AM.

We accessed the dam on the dirt road located at the bridge on Messina Road about 1 mile from the intersection with LA 28 W. It is clear where people park at that location.

Jane et al,

Great that such initiative has been taken! I must apologize to the general
audience that was subscribed to to the LABIRD Facebook group. I was asked
by the (then) moderator of the group, I think in 2014 or 2015, to help
moderate that group. That individual subsequently dropped out and it was
left to me solely.
For a variety of reasons, I decided to deactivate my Facebook account
indefinitely around February last year and in doing so, left the group
without a moderator, which I did not know at the time. Had I known that
this individual was going to disappear, I would have found someone else to
take over the group. Please accept my apologies and glad to see things are
still moving forward. -jz

For what it's worth, Huner and Musumeche published a paper in LOS journal about differences between bird populations before Hurricane Rita and following the hurricane for the Palmetto Island area. That devastation was certainly greater than that from the 2020 hurricanes. The LOS journal is available to anyone who accesses the LOS website.

David et al - I'm working on the Palmetto Island summary (Vermilion Parish),
but we saw similar, although not as severe, conditions to the east down in
the Intracoastal City area of the count.
More when I send out the final numbers.
The surge in Intracoastal City can be seen on fences etc, about 4-5 feet of
water on the roads.

Our species count will be misleadingly high due to the terrain variation of
the circle, but quantities way down as well.

Eric--

Thanks for organizing the count and making sure it got done. It was truly
sad to see the impact on the human and natural environment.

There was a similar near absence of resident land and marsh birds after Rita
for the Sabine Count and after Katrina for the Venice Count (and in New
Orleans for that matter). It took many years for resident landbirds like
woodpeckers, cardinals and chickadees to slowly recolonize the lower
Mississippi River peninsula back down to the Venice area. One species, House
Sparrow, is still not back.

While the condition of vegetation was horrifying, I actually think that
habitat at Creole this year looked a little better than did the habitat in
Cameron in Dec. of 2005 after Rita. Maybe that is a function of the timing
of the storms or the amount of rainfall that fell since the storms--Katrina
and Rita were unfortunately followed by drought.

One thing I vividly recall is that in 2006, the next year, we found a huge
number of sparrows during the Sabine Count, presumably responding to the
explosion of un-grazed grasses and weeds--cows weren't brought back until
fences were repaired and people had somewhere to live. One of the most
common hazards down there in Creole now are miles of barbed wire fences and
posts, ripped out and tangled everywhere.

Subject: [labird] Creole CBC Summary

LAbirders,

On 3 January 2021, 17 observers in 6 parties participated in the 36th Creole
CBC. This was obviously ground zero for both Hurricanes Laura and Delta, and
the devastation to property and habitat is massive. There was very little
green, most homes and camps were either battered to smithereens or gone,
although a few homes and camps were in the process of rebuilding. The
habitat will eventually recover, but it will take a while - much of the
early succession shrub-scrub was scoured, wetlands had a lot of wrack and
debris, and cheniers lots large limbs and trees.

Because of similar effort compared to recent years, especially the previous
7 years, the comparison of bird numbers I feel is quite reflective of the
acute impacts to local bird populations as well as the ongoing impacts from
the loss of habitat quality and quantity. Resident landbird numbers were way
down. This was the first year ever that Blue Jay was missed (24-53 counted
in previous 7 years), and there were zero Eurasian Collared-Doves (5-80
previously), zero Inca Doves (7-43 previously), zero Red-bellied Woodpeckers
(2-16 previously), zero Hairy Woodpeckers (2-6 previously), and zero
Carolina Wrens (1-7 previously). Participants also found only 1 White-winged
Dove (18-186 previously), 10 Mourning Doves (17-215 previously), 1 Downy
Woodpecker (5-20 previously), 2 Loggerhead Shrikes (57-117 previously), 152
European Starlings (286-955 previously), 15 Northern Mockingbirds (57-106
previously), 3 Brown-headed Cowbirds (81-613 previously), 1 Common Grackle
(20-827 previously), and 7 Northern Cardinals (28-106 previously).
Similarly, only 4 Common Gallinules were found (259-757 previously).

Migratory landbird numbers were also down, but generally not completely
absent. Interestingly, there were good numbers of Tree Swallows, American
Robins (the most in last 8 years), and Yellow-rumped Warblers (also the most
in last 8 years). Waterbird numbers were above average, and shorebird and
duck numbers were among the highest they've been in many years, presumably
from mudflats and shallow water that were created as vegetation was scoured
away. Compared to the previous 7 years, Green-winged Teal, Double-crested
Cormorant, American White Pelican, Great Egret, American Avocet, Killdeer,
Least Sandpiper, Greater Yellowlegs, and Lesser Yellowlegs counts were
highest this year.

The species total was a mere 120, far short of last year's record of 151.
This is a count that consistently has turned up >135 species each year. The
only bold-faced rarities that were found included Least Bittern and
Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Surely it will take time for the region to recover,
much like what we saw after Rita and Ike (and Katrina, etc.). I'm hoping the
Creole CBC will serve as a useful index for documenting these changes going
forward.

A huge thank you to the participants who braved the emotional and physical
elements to make this count happen: Amanda Anderson, Katie Barnes, David
Booth, Keith Brink, Charlotte Chehotsky, Ken Eyster, Paul Fontenot, Dale
Hamilton, Kevin Leigh, Becky Lloyd, Mike Musumeche, David Muth, John Nelson,
John Parker, Natalie Poole, and Melvin Weber.

David, All,

It will be interesting to see if the recovery follows Rita's.

The growing season after Rita the wildflower show in Cameron was
spectacular, and the overall flora was radically different than before.
The unique scent of epazote was everywhere. That mix must have been
sparrow-friendly. I recall that Field Sparrows were incredibly abundant
at East Jetty Woods.

The absence of terrestrial predators allowed a boom in rodents and
rabbits, and hawk and owl numbers skyrocketed for a couple of winters.

As painful as it is to see what's down there now, it will be interesting
to see life return.

While the condition of vegetation was horrifying, I actually think that habitat at Creole this year looked a little better than did the habitat in Cameron in Dec. of 2005 after Rita. Maybe that is a function of the timing of the storms or the amount of rainfall that fell since the storms--Katrina and Rita were unfortunately followed by drought.

One thing I vividly recall is that in 2006, the next year, we found a huge number of sparrows during the Sabine Count, presumably responding to the explosion of un-grazed grasses and weeds--cows weren't brought back until fences were repaired and people had somewhere to live. One of the most common hazards down there in Creole now are miles of barbed wire fences and posts, ripped out and tangled everywhere.

Subject: [labird] Creole CBC Summary

LAbirders,

On 3 January 2021, 17 observers in 6 parties participated in the 36th Creole CBC. This was obviously ground zero for both Hurricanes Laura and Delta, and the devastation to property and habitat is massive. There was very little green, most homes and camps were either battered to smithereens or gone, although a few homes and camps were in the process of rebuilding. The habitat will eventually recover, but it will take a while - much of the early succession shrub-scrub was scoured, wetlands had a lot of wrack and debris, and cheniers lots large limbs and trees.

Because of similar effort compared to recent years, especially the previous 7 years, the comparison of bird numbers I feel is quite reflective of the acute impacts to local bird populations as well as the ongoing impacts from the loss of habitat quality and quantity. Resident landbird numbers were way down. This was the first year ever that Blue Jay was missed (24-53 counted in previous 7 years), and there were zero Eurasian Collared-Doves (5-80 previously), zero Inca Doves (7-43 previously), zero Red-bellied Woodpeckers (2-16 previously), zero Hairy Woodpeckers (2-6 previously), and zero Carolina Wrens (1-7 previously). Participants also found only 1 White-winged Dove (18-186 previously), 10 Mourning Doves (17-215 previously), 1 Downy Woodpecker (5-20 previously), 2 Loggerhead Shrikes (57-117 previously), 152 European Starlings (286-955 previously), 15 Northern Mockingbirds (57-106 previously), 3 Brown-headed Cowbirds (81-613 previously), 1 Common Grackle (20-827 previously), and 7 Northern Cardinals (28-106 previously). Similarly, only 4 Common Gallinules were found (259-757 previously).

Migratory landbird numbers were also down, but generally not completely absent. Interestingly, there were good numbers of Tree Swallows, American Robins (the most in last 8 years), and Yellow-rumped Warblers (also the most in last 8 years). Waterbird numbers were above average, and shorebird and duck numbers were among the highest they've been in many years, presumably from mudflats and shallow water that were created as vegetation was scoured away. Compared to the previous 7 years, Green-winged Teal, Double-crested Cormorant, American White Pelican, Great Egret, American Avocet, Killdeer, Least Sandpiper, Greater Yellowlegs, and Lesser Yellowlegs counts were highest this year.

The species total was a mere 120, far short of last year's record of 151. This is a count that consistently has turned up >135 species each year. The only bold-faced rarities that were found included Least Bittern and Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Surely it will take time for the region to recover, much like what we saw after Rita and Ike (and Katrina, etc.). I'm hoping the Creole CBC will serve as a useful index for documenting these changes going forward.

A huge thank you to the participants who braved the emotional and physical elements to make this count happen: Amanda Anderson, Katie Barnes, David Booth, Keith Brink, Charlotte Chehotsky, Ken Eyster, Paul Fontenot, Dale Hamilton, Kevin Leigh, Becky Lloyd, Mike Musumeche, David Muth, John Nelson, John Parker, Natalie Poole, and Melvin Weber.

Thanks to Jay Huner for finding and reporting the bird and to Marky Mutchlers Boyd Rd suggestion, I also saw the Red-necked Grebe at 11:30 this morning. I might have gotten a photo had a fisherman not walked up onto the dam and dispersed part of the large group of ducks.

A Bird Rd comment: Boyd ends at a T junction with Iris Ln. Go to the left. Iris dead ends at a large gated house but there is space to park. On the lake side of the road is a gate with a Do Not Drive on Dam sign. The trail to the dam is just to the left of this gate.

Nice find, Jay.

I saw the Red-necked Grebe at 1100 hours today, close in to the eastern end of the dam on the periphery of a large loafing group of scads of Ruddy Ducks, a few Buffleheads, several Horned and a few Eared Grebes. From the Messina Road access I walked below the dam to the eastern end then came up and was partially hidden by the trees and Johnson grass. Thanks, Jay! I managed to see Red-throated Loon on a field trip to the Chesapeake Bay many years ago, but missed the Red-necked Grebe.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 12, 2021
Contact: <coastal...><mailto:http://<coastal...>/?subject=CPRA%20Release>
Restoration of 88-Acre Bird Nesting Habitat Begins on
Rabbit Island in Cameron Parish

CAMERON, LA – The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) announced today that operations are underway to restore Rabbit Island, the only Brown Pelican colony in Southwest Louisiana. Located in the southwest portion of Calcasieu Lake in Cameron Parish, Rabbit Island is the first rebuild of a waterbird colony since the successful restoration of Queen Bess Island, which saw a dramatic increase in nesting activity immediately following its completion.
“After a devastating hurricane season in Southwest Louisiana, this restoration project is even more important to the overall recovery of the region,” said CPRA Chairman Chip Kline. “Rabbit Island is yet another example of our commitment to investing in and restoring Southwest Louisiana’s coastline.”
The $16.4 million project is funded with settlement money from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill approved by the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (LATIG).
“Within weeks of construction wrapping up last February, at least 8,000 brown pelicans started nesting on Queen Bess, more than double what was expected,” said CPRA Executive Director Bren Haase. “And Rabbit Island is more than twice the size of Queen Bess, with 88 acres being rebuilt as suitable nesting habitat. We look forward to welcoming thousands of nesting birds back this spring.”
“This is a great project that shows Louisiana is leading by example when it comes restoring bird wildlife to their natural habitat,” said State Senator Mark Abraham.
A competitively bid contract for the restoration of Rabbit Island was awarded to Weeks Marine, a dredging company with offices in Covington, La. The project is creating approximately 130 jobs.
“Last year’s storm season was devastating for the people of Cameron Parish,” said State Representative Ryan Bourriaque. “As we continue to rebuild, I applaud the state for taking on this timely restoration project and for their continual investment in this region.”
“This is wonderful to see,” said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “We’ve seen Rabbit Island seriously degrade, losing approximately 30% of its total acreage since 1955. But by combining the habitat expertise of Wildlife and Fisheries and the restoration abilities of CPRA, we are making a big difference that will allow our native species to flourish as we continue the mission of restoring and protecting coastal Louisiana.”
Sediment is being dredged from the Calcasieu Ship Channel for the project. Vegetative plantings of appropriate native grasses and shrubs will further enhance the habitat for pelicans, terns and other colonial nesting waterbirds.
“Hatchlings were drowning and eggs were washing away and breaking because much of the island had eroded to sea level or below,” said CPRA Project Manager Todd Baker. “We are filling in and elevating portions of the island so the birds can survive the wind and water that overtopped nesting areas even during normal high tides.”
The entire operation is scheduled to be complete before nesting season begins in 2021.

Subject: [labird] New Yard-bird: Junco
In north Louisiana my dad always called them snow-birds.  And although we don't have snow here in Baton Rouge today, I hear there is some further north.  So I was elated to record our 111th yard-bird this morning, a fine junco specimen.  Just last week # 110 was our first Eastern bluebird in the yard, though we see them often in a field on the other side of the subdivision. Michael Cavanaughabout a mile south of LSU off Highland Road  In a message dated 1/12/2021 8:11:35 AM Central Standard Time, <steve.shively...> writes:

Subject: [labird] Louisiana Winter Hummingbird Report #4
HUMNETters and LABIRDers:
What a winter for hummingbirds in Louisiana! It's been exciting, but also extremely challenging to keep up with all the reports. Please do make sure that if you've sent me a report that I've logged it. Since the end of November, I've received reports from 145 hummingbird hosts. We're closing in on 700 individual hummingbirds reported this winter. In all of 2019-2020, 223 birds were reported. New birds are continuing to show up in yards, and with the coldest part of the winter upon us, I have no doubt birds will continue to be moving around looking for a good home. So keep those feeders fresh, and those reports coming!
For new reports to record in our report and database, please provide me with the following information:
- Your name
- Your city/town
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other birds, the date it was observed)
- Species - please send photos, if available, for confirmation
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom
If additional information is learned through further observation or banding, please report those updates and I'll make the changes. Also, please report the last observed (LO) date, if possible, when the bird leaves. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and marked.
And please send photos if you have any, which will help confirm the ID, age, and sex of your bird(s).
Happy hummingbirding!
Erik Johnson, Sunset, LA (Erik.Johnson AT Audubon.org)

Subject: [labird] Advice about the Kincaid Lake Red-necked Grebe
So far, the bird has been seen by me on 1/7, Charlie Lyon, Marybeth Lima, Lynn Hathaway, and me on 1/9, Andrew From on 1/10, and Marky Birdgirl on 1/11. I found the bird right next to the dam near its west end. Weather was terrible. Birds were hugging the lea behind the point next to the west end of the dam. Everyone else saw the bird way the heck out there around the vicinity of a couple of decoy spreads, as best I know. It's been seen in early morning, mid-day, and late afternoon.

The best views of the bird when it was way the heck out there has been on the east side of the spillway. It likely could have been seen from the west side of the spillway itself.

In any event, HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The most convenient access is to park in the parking lot at Tunk's Cypress Inn which is at the end of Kincaid Drive (maybe name is E. Kincaid) off LA 28 W about 12 miles west of Alexandria. Then you have to hoof it about 0.8 mile east to the spillway, crossing an emergency spillway and walking up and over the hill to the dam.

I wasn't clear to Ms. Marky about access to the east end of the dam. So, she went hither and thither but thanks to internet maps got there. The best access is off Messina Road walking along the dirt access road to the dam. Messina Road intersects LA 28 W about 11 miles from Alexandria. Coming from Alexandria, you go left on Messina and proceed about a mile to a small bridge that crosses the drainage channel from the Kincaid Dam spillway/drain system. You can see where people, mostly fishers park. You walk down the dirt road to the dam around 0.3 mile.

There is a reasonable number of Horned Grebes and a few Eared Grebes in the area. So, you have to look for anything that looks like a small grebe. Again, with the exception when I found the RNGR, the bird is way the heck out there. If it weren't for Charlie Lyon's persistence and scope, we wouldn't have found it on Saturday.

Good luck, Jay Huner

Hi Leon and LABIRD!

I've not seen one yet this winter, but I looked on ebird and there are
scattered records for this winter. I have my fingers crossed for those and
evening grosbeaks!

Covered up in siskins and finches here, too...

Subject: [labird] Pine Siskins and Purple Finches in Baton Rouge
A dozen or so siskins arrived early this past week and joined several purple
finches and large flock of goldfinches and house finches at my feeders in SE
Baton Rouge.



One or more yellow-rump warblers are working on my suet feeder, too.

Subject: [labird] Black-headed Grosbeak at Bayou Sauvage NWR
I found a Black-headed Grosbeak at Recovery Road this morning at Bayou
Sauvage NWR. It was seen in the trees and shrubs on the south side of the
landfill right around the yellow gate where the trees open up. An
Ash-throated Flycatcher was also present near the beginning of the road
around the 2nd slight turn but it was silent.

Labird,
I set up a couple of platform feeders for finches in my son's backyard. He
had lots of finches in the trees, and a neighbor that feeds birds. I have
seen goldfinches, siskins, purple finches, and a Black-headed Grosbeak. I
finally got a decent photo of the grosbeak yesterday. Seems like a good
winter for them in Louisiana. Photos on the ebird list.

Subject: [labird] LOS FIELD TRIPS
FIELD TRIPS!!

Here are all the gory details for all TEN LOS Winter 2021 field trips!!

LOS Winter Field Trips
All trips Saturday, January 30
Once again, LOS is making the best of a bad situation due to COVID. Because our 2021 Winter meeting is virtual, we’re hosting statewide field trips instead of regional ones to accommodate as many people as possible. Here’s all you need to know:
Who can go? Trips are open only to LOS members in good standing.
How do I sign up? First, please note that you no one can sign up until AFTER the Thursday, Jan 28, 2021, virtual meeting (starts at 6:30pm). To sign up, please email Donna Dittmann at <donnaldittmann...> You can also sign up your spouse or a friend. She’ll need the name, email address, and cell phone number of all participants. As soon as any trip is filled, Donna will post that information on all regular venues.
Clothing? Obviously, dress for that day’s temperatures and weather, but also please wear muted colors (no large amounts of white, day-glo anything, red, orange, etc.). Please also bring along extra footwear such as hiking boots or waterproof boots.
Gear? Binoculars are a must, of course. If you like, please bring your digital camera. Scopes are a plus, but they are not required. (Scopes are not be needed on the Cross Lake trip or the rail banding trip)
COVID details? LOS wants all leaders and participants to be responsible and considerate of others, especially during the pandemic. Please wear masks inside ANY building. Please do not carpool at any time unless you are always with that person (spouse, etc.). Please stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, even when outside. Please bring along your own disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer; scopes may need to be wiped down if people are sharing views through the same scope. If you are feeling ill, PLEASE stay home. We’ll be having field trips all year, so there’s no need to risk your health or anyone else’s.
Capacity? The capacity numbers for each trip are listed below; the number listed does NOT include the trip leader.
What if something changes? If any trip details should change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, you will be contacted either by your trip leader or possibly by Donna.
eBird? All leaders will keep eBird lists and will be happy to share them with you if you will supply them with your eBird user name.
NORTH LA TRIPS:
#1: Birding Cross Lake with Charlie Lyon and LBRC Member Larry Raymond: Enjoy four chances to bird Cross Lake with morning and afternoon trips! No one knows Cross Lake birding better than Charlie Lyon. Charlie and Larry will each have a boat and will make morning and afternoon trips to accommodate as many people as possible. Look for highlights like Lesser Black-backed Gull and hopefully be the first to spot “Waldo,” the returning Western Grebe. Meet at the Shreveport Yacht Club at 8:00am for the morning trip or at 2:00pm for the afternoon trip. Charlie’s boat and Larry’s boat each accommodate 4 people (8 people total for morning and another 8 for the afternoon). Note: if weather is uncooperative, you will be contacted by the leaders prior to the date, and the trip will instead focus on local highlight species like Harris’s Sparrow, Western Meadowlark, and Sprague’s Pipit.
#2: LSU Hill Farm with LOS President John Dillon: Bird the private-access LSU Hill Farm in Claiborne Parish with a focus on sparrow ID, pishing techniques, and habitat requirements for open country and thicket birds. The LSU Hill Farm is 1488 acres of rolling pastures and ponds, surrounded by forest and second growth. John has documented 18 species of sparrow there. Some walking will be required, possibly through grassy fields. Meet at John’s house at 183 Dance Road in Athens, LA (30 minutes NE of Ruston) at 7:00am. Bird til around noon. If all are interested, the meeting time can be changed to 6:30am in order to observe American Woodcock.
#3: Poverty Point Reservoir State Park with Gerry Click: Ducks and other waterfowl should be in good numbers on this protected reservoir during this last weekend of duck season. Hone your ID skills with long-time birder Gerry Click around the reservoir of this wonderful new state park established in 2005. Scopes strongly encouraged for this trip. Meet at the south entrance of the state park (just north of Delhi) at 7:00am. Accommodates 10 people.
#4: Black Bayou NWR with Gerry Click: For an afternoon trip, meet long-time birder Gerry Click in the parking lot of the Black Bayou NWR Visitor’s Center in Monroe at 2:00pm and bird til dusk. Walking is required to get around most of the refuge. Waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, and more can be expected, and hopefully owls at dusk. Accommodates 12 people.
SOUTH LA TRIPS:
#5: Cameron Parish Rail Banding with Audubon Director of Bird Conservation, Dr. Erik Johnson: If you’re up for an adventure, this is the trip for you! Join Dr. Erik Johnson, Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon Louisiana as he and his team search for, find, and band rails. Highlight species are the sought after Yellow Rails and Black Rails, widely considered to be the two most elusive bird species in North America, along with Virginia and Clapper Rails, Sora, and possibly hunting Barn Owls. You should be in overall good physical condition for this trip, as it will require walking through a salt marsh while pulling a drag line and carrying gear - at night. Be sure to discuss proper attire and gear with Erik before going! Because of banding on private property, the location of this trip will not be published; Erik will supply everyone with meeting location and time information prior to the trip. However, you can expect to meet just before sunset in Cameron Parish, along Hwy 27/82 and anywhere between a couple miles west of Calcasieu Pass and Broussard Beach. Accommodates 6 people.
#6: Lacassine NWR and environs with LOS Vice-President David Booth: Bird the always productive Lacassine NWR for waterfowl, raptors, and much more with David Booth. Sandhill Cranes will also be a target for this trip. The eBird bar chart for Lacassine property shows 150 species for January, so there’s plenty of diversity, and walking should be limited. Meet at Burton Colosseum in Lake Charles at 7am. Bird all day. Accommodates 12 people.
#7: Spanish Lake with LOS Board Member and Audubon Louisiana’s Katie Barnes: Spanish Lake is a beautiful 1200 acre lake that lies mostly in Iberia Parish with some of the lake in St. Martin Parish. In addition to the scenery, you can expect target birds such as waterfowl, wading birds, and winter songbirds, and you’ll learn a lot about identification from Katie as you bird this half-day trip. Participants will drive around the loop with occasional stops to scan the lake using scopes and bird the woods bordering the lake. There will be times when the group will venture for about a 1 mile on foot for better viewing opportunities, so sturdy footwear is recommended. Meet at 7:00am at Spanish Lake Road (south end of the lake) in Iberia Parish, and bring $2 to be paid at the booth to the left as you enter. Accommodates 6 people.
#8: LSU/Capitol Lakes Area and Rarities with Matt Brady: This winter has already produced some great rarities around the downtown Baton Rouge area, like Vaux’s Swift, White-winged Scoter, and a first-Parish record Black-throated Gray Warbler, along with other tough-to-get birds like Greater Scaup and Western Tanager. Let LSU’s own Matt Brady show you the best birds in downtown BR, and learn lots of expert advice and ID tips from a great birder. Meet at the parking area along Capitol Access Rd., just north of the State Capitol building at 7:00am. Accommodates 8 people.
#9: Beginning Birder Trip in Tangipahoa Parish with Baton Rouge Audubon’s Jane Patterson: Jane has long taught birders to beginners. Join her for an instructive morning field trip at various locations that are perfect for anyone new to birding. You’ll start by walking the Joyce WMA boardwalk and 1/2 mile gravel road, then bird the Ponchatoula Wastewater Treatment Plant (restricted access) for waterfowl, and possibly make a quick trip to the Pass Manchac area. And if for some reason the birding’s slow that day, your lunch at Middendorf’s afterward is still guaranteed to please! Meet at 7:00am in the parking lot of CJ Antiques in downtown Ponchatoula; that’s 160 SE Railroad Avenue. Accommodates 8 people.
#10: Grand Isle and Port Fourchon with LBRC member Casey Wright: Bird the ponds of Port Fourchon just outside Grand Isle, then bird hot spots of the island like Elmer’s Island Refuge, Exxon Fields, Landry-Leblanc Tract, and Grilleta Tract. Expect Gulf birds like gulls and terns, of course, but you also should pick up cool finds like Reddish Egret, various shorebirds, raptors, and a better than average chance of rarities. Bird most of the day, with Jo’Bob’s for lunch. Meet at 8am at Moran’s Marina in Port Fourchon and the corner of Hwys 1 and 3090 as you are coming off the toll bridge. Accommodates 10 people.

Posting on the fly ...
Yesterday afternoon I briefly glimpsed what I thought was an Evening Grosbeak flying ENE seen 1 block west of the St. Tammany Hospital complex Western-most building, the building on the west side of Tyler Street in Covington. I did not enter it into my eBird checklist because details would be required and I saw it so briefly, but pretty sure it was one.

Subject: [labird] New Iberia CBC Summary
LAbird,

On 21 December 2020, 13 participants in 4 parties conducted the 13th New Iberia CBC. Remarkably, the species total was exactly the same as the previous two years (and was achieved with reduced participation/effort) = 124 species. Four new species were found on the count, highlighted by a "WESTERN" (Pacific-slope/Cordilleran) FLYCATCHER found and photographed by Ken Eyster and Katie Barnes. ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER, LEAST FLYCATCHER, and BELL'S VIREO were also new to the count. Other highlights included RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD (2nd count record), SOLITARY SANDPIPER (2nd count record), and PINE SISKIN (2nd count record). The group reported high counts of WOOD DUCK (82), BLUE-WINGED TEAL (130), LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER (18), BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON (13), BARRED OWL (6), TREE SWALLOW (687), SEDGE WREN (32), and AMERICAN GOLDFINCH (264). Other birds of note included CANVASBACK (1), RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD (2), R/A HUMMINGBIRD (2), BUFF-BELLIED HUMMINGBIRD (2), PURPLE FINCH (3), FOX SPARROW (1), RUSTY BLACKBIRD (11), and WILSON'S WARBLER (2).

A huge thank you to the participants: Katie Barnes, Charlotte Chehotsky, Matt Courtman, Susan Hester Edmunds, Ken Eyster, Elias Landry, Mike Musumeche, John Parker, Karen Terrell, Cathy Thomason, Mary Tutwiler, and Mike VanEtten.

Mac and all,

Yes, there are apple snails in EBR. The Limpkin showed up for a week or two in March, and was relayed by an adult class student of Jane Patterson's who then alerted the local community. Quite a great record! Unfortunately, a pair of Canada Geese then decided to nest on its favorite spot and it disappeared. No doubt, there may be others lurking out there.

Good birding,
Dan Lane

Dan,

That is an outstanding list. Somehow, I missed hearing about the Limpkin. Was that a wandering bird, never seen again, or did it/they linger? Are there Pomacea in EBR Parish?

Thanks to Matt for the shoutout, and to David and Paul for their kind comments and stories of their own parish big years. I should point out that Matt played no small role in making sure I was aware of some important records by calling me if I hadn't already responded to reports (thanks Matt!), not to mention finding several choice species himself! But 2020 really gave me a new appreciation for birding in East Baton Rouge Parish! It has gone from a "mediocre" birding parish to "downright great" Or something along those lines, anyway. Even without tidewater, it has a few geographical features that can really shine... sadly, as with so much of our state, many of these are not open to the general public.

That said, I hope never to be "trapped" at home for most of a year again, and therefore will not have to revert to parish listing to keep me from going absolutely nuts! Thank god for birds, or I would be a drooling mess from this past year...

Good birding to all and may 2021 bring us all great birds, and opportunities to travel once again!

LaBirders,

The Baton Rouge Audubon Society (BRAS) will host our next virtual
presentation on Thursday, January 14th -  just over a week away. Apologies
for the short notice! But I am very excited to have Katie Barnes tell us
about another important volunteer opportunity that is upon us.

PRESENTER: Katie Barnes, Coastal Stewardship Manager, Audubon Delta

TITLE: The Road to Recovery: How the Audubon Coastal Bird Survey helps
birds following the 2020 hurricane season

DESCRIPTION: The Audubon Coastal Bird Survey is a volunteer-based community
science program designed to provide scientists with valuable data for
addressing conservation needs of shorebirds and seabirds that breed,
winter, and migrate along the Gulf Coast. Frequent coastal bird surveys
during key migratory and winter periods are used to identify important
shorebird habitats both locally and across the northern Gulf of Mexico. The
program is already providing valuable population and habitat-use data for a
variety of coastal waterbirds, many of which are experiencing population
declines.

Understanding impacts of tropical disturbances, such as hurricanes and
flooding events, to shorebirds and their habitats is an important step
towards the recovery of local and regional coastal bird populations. The
2020 hurricane season had a record 30 named storms, including 12 U.S.
landfalls, with 5 of those making landfall along Louisiana’s fragile
coastline. As southwest Louisiana continues to recover, the need for
Audubon Coastal Bird Survey volunteers is particularly critical. Please
join us on Thursday to learn more about how you can help!

DATE: Jan 14, 2021

TIME: 07:00 PM Central Time

To register in advance for this meeting, please follow this link:

Subject: [labird] Brown Booby and other Ninemile Pt notes, Jefferson Parish
Hello All:

Brown Booby this morning on the Miss River just upstream from Ochsner, seen across the river from the West Bank side. It flew up and then downstream around 9 AM, so may be working the area rather than passing through.

I walk for exercise (binocs in hand) on the West Bank levee most mornings since the pandemic started, and this is my fourth Br Booby sighting. I also saw a couple in Plaquemines Parish (Phoenix) on the river a couple months ago, so it seems they might have an ongoing but sparse presence on the river in the general vicinity of New Orleans.

For duck enthusiasts, there are 8000+ Black-bellied Whistlers and 10,000 or so scaup along this stretch of the river these days. The grain elevator is a big draw, but the best scaup viewing has been actually from the East Bank, immediately in front of Ochsner, where a couple thousand are generally close to the bank and access is pretty easy. Of course with that many ducks, it is a setup for something cool to join in, but I have not detected anything more fancy than Greater Scaup as of yet.

I have been woefully negligent about posting on ebird from these walks, so let me just give a few other recent highlights:
Ash-throated Flycatcher in late Dec
Western Tanager- two different birds on Jan 1 and 2
Black-headed/Rose-breasted Grosbeak- one on Jan 2 (looked more like Black-headed)
Indigo Bunting- one on Jan 2
Painted Bunting- one on Jan 2
Baltimore Oriole- one in late December

If you visit, you may be questioned if you stand around at the elevator itself with binoculars (though they have been friendly while doing so). But stay on the levee if in the immediate area of the elevator, please.

Subject: [labird] Possible Evening Grosbeak in Covington
Posting on the fly ...
Yesterday afternoon I briefly glimpsed what I thought was an Evening
Grosbeak flying ENE seen 1 block west of the St. Tammany Hospital complex
Western-most building, the building on the west side of Tyler Street in
Covington. I did not enter it into my eBird checklist because details would
be required and I saw it so briefly, but pretty sure it was one.

And there's an adult male Vermilion flycatcher south of Pass Manchac on the
St. JohnTB parish side. He was hanging out near the Bait Alley sign.

Dan,

That is an outstanding list. Somehow, I missed hearing about the Limpkin.
Was that a wandering bird, never seen again, or did it/they linger? Are
there Pomacea in EBR Parish?

Subject: Re: [labird] New EBR Big Year Record
Thanks to Matt for the shoutout, and to David and Paul for their kind comments and stories of their own parish big years. I should point out that Matt played no small role in making sure I was aware of some important records by calling me if I hadn't already responded to reports (thanks Matt!), not to mention finding several choice species himself! But 2020 really gave me a new appreciation for birding in East Baton Rouge Parish! It has gone from a "mediocre" birding parish to "downright great" Or something along those lines, anyway. Even without tidewater, it has a few geographical features that can really shine... sadly, as with so much of our state, many of these are not open to the general public.

That said, I hope never to be "trapped" at home for most of a year again, and therefore will not have to revert to parish listing to keep me from going absolutely nuts! Thank god for birds, or I would be a drooling mess from this past year...

Good birding to all and may 2021 bring us all great birds, and opportunities to travel once again!
Dan Lane

Subject: [labird] WEKI, VEFL and possible TRKI near Port Manchac in Tangipahoa parish
On a whim, I went to check for possible vagrant flycatchers near Pass
Manchac this afternoon. They seem to like that location for some reason.
And, voila! there they were. Found one Western Kingbird, a female-type
Vermillion flycatcher and a possible Tropical Kingbird. I entered it as a
TRKI/COKI until I can (hopefully) get a voice recording. I played TRKI call
on phone and bird reacted, but not as expected. It *immediately* dove into
a shrub. I am pretty sure I heard it call at that point but I couldn't see
the bird to verify its mouth was moving :)

All 3 birds are near the front of the Port Manchac facility on hwy 51
north of Middendorfs, sometimes on the wires, sometimes on the lower
vegetation between road and tracks, sometimes in the tallow trees in back.
Scope suggested.

Photos attached. Other photos on ebird checklist:

I made a quick run to campus this morning and the third time was a charm.  I rounded the south side of the administration building, closest to the amphitheater, and the Western Tanager was right there.  It was flying towards the second story windows of the admin building and then perched in one of the trees nearby.
Beautiful bird.

Subject: [labird] foreign finch update
All,

A birder in Conway, Arkansas, photographed a Common Redpoll in her backyard January 1. There is one other unsubstantiated claim for Common Redpoll in Arkansas this winter. We’ve already had two-three sightings of Evening Grosbeaks in Louisiana but none at feeders yet.

These finches regularly visit feeders, so please keep your feeders filled and be looking for them. Common Redpoll would, I believe, be a first state record and would require photo or video documentation. And Evening Grosbeaks haven’t been in the state since the mid 1980s, so photos/videos would be nice, especially if they’re at feeders.

Just an update.

John Dillon

From: Paul Conover <zoiseaux...>
Subject: Re: [labird] New EBR Big Year Record
Matt, All,

      276 is amazing and it's been fun to watch the crazy stuff Dan has
been finding and seeing.

      My highest in Cameron was 299 or 300 in 2011, but it was only at
the end of that year when I saw that I was at 293 on eBird that I gave
it much thought and realized that there were common birds I'd seen that
I hadn't thought about submitting lists for, so the exact total is lost
in the drifting sands. I'm guessing Cardiff/Dittmann/Remsen have all
topped that at some point.

      Personally, I was more astounded when Rob Dobbs recorded 257
species in Lafayette Parish in 2016. There are only about 310 species on
the parish list, the parish is tiny, there are no sizeable water bodies,
and the rural parts of the parish are getting more developed by the
year, so that total was impressive.

      Likewise I recall the epic battle between David and Phillip back
when. That was a gripping story to watch unfold as it neared the finish
line.

      So, major congrats to Dan. When the world gets back to normal he
might find himself in a place where he can see 276 species in a week,
but at least he got something memorable in a positive way out of 2020.

Paul Conover

That is astonishing. In 2004 there was an informal statewide competition for Parish Year lists. I am sure someone compiled the final totals.

In Orleans, Phillip Wallace and I had a friendly competition which I won with 283 out of (I believe) 289 species see in Orleans Parish that year. Phillip was a couple of species behind me. To get so close to that effort by Dan in a parish with no tidewater is amazing.

I am slowly entering my 2004 day lists into Ebird. I am almost finished the first week of April.

Hello all. I'd like to take this opportunity to extend a big congratulations to Dan Lane, who has set a new East Baton Rouge Parish Big Year record!! He ended the year with a Black-headed Grosbeak in his yard, not only a fantastic yard bird, but also a fourth Parish record. This was his 276th species for the year, which is pretty amazing considering he didn't even really start actively searching out year birds until sometime this summer, when I pointed out that he had already surpassed any previous EBR year high count (208 in eBird in 2015). Furthermore, he missed a fair amount of the first few months of the year as, pre-pandemic (remember those times?? It was less than a year ago!), he was leading birding tours in Peru. So, this is an especially impressive total. 276 also ranks as one of the highest big year totals for any Louisiana parish, rivaled only by a few efforts by Paul Conover in Cameron.

Once again, congrats Dan!

Subject: [labird] White pelicans over Metairie
Driving home from errands and stopped at apollo and Hastings facing north to see a flock of 30 white pelicans flying over probably the west esplanade canal at 11:20 am this morning Tuesday December 29 2020. Never seen white pelicans in suburbia!

Gorgeous day today!

Happy birding

Terri Skelton

Nancy, I was not clear. I checked this year only. I did not mean to suggest it was “rare”, only that it was unusual and maybe worth mentioning… or maybe not….

Beth, a few years ago I had a dickcissel spend the entire winter. The scenario was very much like yours - it was with a large flock of house sparrows, came to the feeders every day.

Yesterday, I got word of a male Vermillion flycatcher on Ben Hur Road at the Termite Building. My daughter, Katherine, and I went around 4:30 and, sure enough, it was perched on the cyclone fence to the left of the building. It did the usual flycatcher movements, fluttering up and down to the same spot on the fence. We heard and observed a kestrel nearby. It circled and landed close to the flycatcher's perch. But when we looked for the flycatcher again, it had disappeared, hopefully hiding from the kestrel. i managed to take some decent pictures with my scope and cell phone.

Hi Matt and LABIRD - Regarding your observation: "The Wood Ducks we observed
were all flying out of the Lacassine Bayou swamp forest, towards the rice
fields. Im guessing that they were going out to forage, but Im really not
sure. John Dillon, in his eBird checklist, hypothesized that the birds he
and Gerry saw were departing Lacassine Pool to the north, to roost for the
evening."

At least with Northern Pintails, research by Cox and Afton in the 90's
revealed that birds roosted during the daylight hours on Lacassine Pool,
then left at sunset to forage nocturnally in rice fields up to 15 miles
away, returning to Lacassine Pool before sunrise.

pintails wintering in

Subject: [labird] Mountain Bluebird during the Sweetlake-Cameron Prairie CBC
Labird,

Yesterday at the bridge on Old Camp Road, I saw a Mountain Bluebird. Here's the eBird checklist with photos: https://ebird.org/checklist/S77764312. Just before dusk, David Muth, John Nelson, Erik Johnson, and I enjoyed great views of the Mountain Bluebird perched on the power line before it ultimately flew a few hundred yards down the road at sunset.

Other highlights from the day were 2 Vermilion Flycatchers near the 90 degree curve on West Todd Road (one about 50 yards east of the curve and the other about 100 yards south of the curve by the wet area; there's been only one in this area the past few years), several hundred Great-tailed Grackles roaming the wet fields (several were seen eating crawfish), 10 Crested Caracaras at a calf carcass on Natali Road just east of the intersection with Robinson, relatively high numbers of White-crowned Sparrows and Vesper Sparrows, a Field Sparrow at the 90 degree turn of Old Camp Road, and a very cooperative Merlin on West Todd Road.

Good birding,
Irvin Louque
