Subject: [Mnbird] Requested Photos--Summer Feeder
Thanks to those who expressed an interest in a feeder set up such as
this.  It is really quite simple--just assemble the feeder as if you
were going to put it in the ground, but use a HEAVY umbrella base to
hold the post.  Because most feeder poles are designed to be slender you
will need some additional support inside of the umbrella tube.  With
mine, I simply added the ground sleeve that was meant to pound into the
ground.  The umbrella base crew is able to set on to that and keep
things stable.

I am going to go out on a limb and say the feeder pole and accessories
are Stokes brand, found at many retailers selling bird supplies.  I
bought mine at a local pet supply, but I have seen some available at
Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, etc.  They are modular, so have several
options for topping the pole and/or adding extension hooks.  Cindy in
North Mankato

The local ponds are still frozen, lots of snow on the ground, but today a female wood duck went in the house in my back yard without hesitation (meaning she has apparently been there before) as her mate watched from the nearby oak. And on the ground a female mallard was walking around looking for a nest site as her mate stood in the back yard watching.

Waterfowl are such fun.

aha!
I double you on USPSI. While we don't have the problem of having a hard
surface area, I am wanting something like this, with the option of
installing around it some kind of surface, because all of that seed kills
any grass beneath it anyway and ends up looking a mess and we can't get all
the old seed up easily. I worry about molding and such. This could be a
solution, and allow us to clean up old wet seed from beneath...

Subject: [Mnbird] Summer Feeder
I put up my summer feeder today--after a year of 'beta test' I can
suggest to anyone who is looking for an oddball feeder that this will
actually work.

After we put in a patio a couple of years back I lost my spot to have a
feeder post in the back yard where we could view the birds best (the
bathroom window, but that is another story...)  One day, on an
inspiration, I purchased a feeder pole and ground spike at our local pet
supply store, and a platform feeder with a pole adapter.  We had a heavy
metal patio umbrella stand that we were no longer using, and I set up
the feeder pole on the patio in the umbrella stand.  The ground spike 
gives you the extra width to use the umbrella base screw to secure the
post best.

Since we exceed the USPSI (urban squirrel per square inch) I also
attached a baffle cone to the post, and one extension hook for a hanging
feeder.  As long as the second feeder remains above the baffle, it is
also somewhat squirrel proof.  Think short finch sock vs long finch
sock.  One industrious squirrel figured out that it could climb my
umbrella clothesline and leap, but since the feeder was more or less
portable I simply moved it and got it out of reach.  Since I'm a
shortie, I need to stand on a small step to fill the feeder, but that is
okay.

That feeder post withstood all of the weather we threw at it last
summer, and remained standing.  It is a great idea for anyone looking to
put a feeder on a deck or paved area that they weren't sure they could
use for bird feeding in the past.

I hope that this suggestion can help someone else--regards, Cindy in
North Mankato

Subject: Re: [Mnbird] Salt Lake
We just returned. There is a very small area of open water on the SD side, and a thin strip of water (1 ft) near shore along part of the N side.It was VERY quiet: no shorebirds, no waterfowl, two meadowlarks and a kestrel. I guess a lot could happen in a week, so don't cancel your Salt Lake Birding Festival plans yet.More generally, shorebirds were v scarce. We saw killdeer and yellowlegs, and that's it! Songbirds are just starting to show up: yellow-rumps in small numbers, an eastern Phoebe, hermit thrushes, bluebirds, 6 spp of sparrows.Waterfowl are abundant, with ducks in far greater numbers than on past Salt Lake weekends I've joined. Notable waterbirds included a Western grebe above the dam at lac Qui Parle State park, and a pair of red-necked grebes at the base of Big Stone Lake. Those two spots (and the sloughs at Montevideo) have great views of all manner of ducks, mergansers and grebes.Our total for a day and a few hours was 84 species.

Subject: [Mnbird] Possible Swainson's Hawk at Old Cedar Bridge
About 4:30 pm on Saturday, from the path between Old Cedar Bridge and
the Bass Ponds, 3 hawks
were seen circling fairly high above Long Meadow Lake. One of those
hawks had very dark primaries
and secondaries and light underwing coverts. I remember being told while
birding out west that
reversal of the pattern that one sees in some other hawks is something
that distinguishes Swainson's
from other hawks, and looking at the pictures in Sibley I don't see
anything that obviously contradicts
that. It was clearly not an adult Red-tailed Hawk (no red tail).

I have no photos and am not certain enough of the ID to report this bird
anywhere but here. Just
want to let folks in the Minneapolis area know to keep an eye out.

Subject: [Mnbird] Scott County
I just watched a Chickadee eye a pile of unshelled peanuts set out for the Jays. After looking at them all… It picked the biggest one and attempted to fly off with it. After leaving the deck rail the Chickedee appeared to lose forward air speed and altitude as it flew off :) that peanut was as big as the little bird.

Last year a chickadee found an unshelled peanut and sat on the deck floor attempting to crack it. It grasped the peanut with both feet balancing with its tail and three times the little bird tipped over on its side on the deck floor having to climb back up on the peanut too begin the process all over again. How could I not laugh out loud.

I am freshly retired and looking forward to many excursions out on the trail with my binoculars and notepad.

I have my bird photographs in albums at this link. Feel free to stop by and have a look. I don't want to be the only one looking at these beautiful birds!

No redpolls at my feeders, nor yellow rumps. I am in Anoka county, Oak
Grove.
I did get at least two male house finches and a song sparrow yesterday and
an unknown number of tree sparrows, at least a half dozen. Many fox
sparrows. Many many many many many many juncos.
And the usual chickadees, nuthatches, hairy, downy, and red breasted wood
peckers. We often see pileated, as well, but haven't seen them for a couple
of weeks.
We also had pheasants, two hens and a rooster. Oh, and a lot of blue jays
and red winged black birds.
Hoping to see some more of the returning warm weather birds soon. But maybe
they should hold off until food is available. I don't see many insects
being around right now...
Though, some trees are beginning to look like they want to bloom, silver
maples and elms, for instance.
I saw some pussy willows on Friday starting to come out, also.

Hey everyone,




Hope you're all dug out from the weekend. As the snow fell I spent the whole storm watching my feeders and it occurs to me that a bad day for birds can be a good day for birdwatchers. My feeders were very busy and by sunset Sunday (or at least dark), I had had 18 species of birds in my yard. All the expected locals but also a flock of Common Redpolls, Song Sparrow, 2 Fox Sparrows, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Cooper's Hawk and 2 Mallards. No Yellow-rumps but I did have friends nearby that had one show up at a feeder. It will really be interesting to watch the feeders over the next couple of days to see if it stays as busy as it has been.




Good Birding!

Greetings--just had a warbler on my suet feeder cage in the front yard. 
Book ID says first spring redstart.

Noticed yesterday quite a few robins around in the storm, but today not
seeing them.  I put out some chopped apple and beef suet on the ground,
hoping to feed them.  Oh, well--someone will enjoy it.   Cindy in North

Still snowing (heavily) and blowing here.More frantic birds:  To the growing crowd of juncos and house finches add house sparrows, starlings, crows, blue jays, goldfinches and even cowbirds, not to mention the other every-days - chickadees, cardinals, nuthatches and downy wps.   The competition is fierce.  I wonder where the creeper is?  I'm impressed with how well the chipping sparrows hold their own at the feeder, against their bigger cousins.
Back out soon to de-ice and replenish. Lucky for them I won't run out of chow.

Hennepin County, Bloomington – I’ve been scattering a mix including millet on my deck which is attracting juncos by the dozen. My tube feeder with back oil sunflower seeds is attracting flocks of chickadees and house finches (and the odd purple finch). The suet cakes are attracting nuthatches and various woodpeckers.

Anoka county, Oak Grove - I too have juncos, and have filled all my feeders (mixed fine bits of sunflower seeds, nyjer, and small other seed in a tube feeder) mixed seeds, mostly black oil sunflower, but also peanuts, regular sunflower, and other seeds in a two sided hopper feeder, suet, and mealworms. I also have been going out and scattering some on the ground for ground feeders every so often.
Besides the juncos, we have two pheasant hens and a rooster, no sign of our resident four male turkeys who like to parade through and swagger and strut, though.
I have a small flock of fox sparrows, not seen before today here. A good smattering of jays taking turns at the seeds, corn, and meal worms I have scattered, and chickadees, nuthatches (white breasted), gold finches, and male RWBBs.  We have had robins, and I have some crabapple trees, but I have not seen the robins around today. 
We also usually see crows about, but they are absent also. 
I did have a pair of trumpeter swans glide over our marsh, to land farther downstream on the creek near us. 
We often have heard and seen sandhill cranes in our marsh and around the creek, and we were gifted with a performance by one pair last weekend as they did a little pas de deux while wandering the edge of the marsh. Always thrilling to see. 
Their pterodactyl cries are not heard above the winds today.

The birds are frantic to find food in the storm. We have a flock of nothing less 300 Juncos we've been feeding. I've never seen anything like it. We have 3 protected areas to feed from. They are lovin it! Over the past couple of weeks we've had a troupe of Redpols emptying 2 socks of Nyjer seed every other day. This is getting expensive :) Spring better get here soon so they all can migrate and then I can eat.

The Sandhill Cranes have been here for weeks now.

The first Ospreys have begun returning to their nests in the twin cities area and Twin Cities Metro Osprey Watch needs your help. This is our annual plea to please report new nests or osprey activity in the eight county metro area to us. We are trying to monitor all know nests in Hennepin, Ramsey, Carver, Washington, Anoka, Wright, Dakota and Scott counties as part of a long term study on these raptors. We are also seeking volunteers to help monitor these nests. (132 known occupied nests last year, which included 13 new nests.) We are assembling our field teams now so If you are interested in helping us by checking a nest once a week through the breeding season, please contact Vanessa Greene at <osprey.mn...> You can find more info, including last years productivity and behavioral results, on our facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/Twin-Cities-Metro-Osprey-Watch-218968924786696/?ref=hl) or our blog... www.ospreywatch.blogspot.com

Subject: [Mnbird] American Bird Conservancy expert Dr. Christine Sheppard to speak on solutions for U.S. Bank Stadium glass hazard
Please join us on April 18 for a presentation by national bird-glass
collision expert Dr. Christine Sheppard, who will speak on "Why Birds
Collide with Glass and How We Can Stop Them".



Dr. Sheppard is director of the Glass Collisions Program at the American
Bird Conservancy in Virginia, where she researches avian visual ecology in
order to evaluate and develop effective solutions to reduce bird mortality.
She will discuss strategies for reducing bird mortality and will offer
recommendations on retrofitting U.S. Bank Stadium -- which she will be
visiting earlier that day -- to make it safer for birds. This is the second
of three presentations addressing retrofit options for the stadium.



Dr. Sheppard's presentation will be held at Beth El Synagogue, 5225 Barry
Street W, St. Louis Park, MN, on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. The
event is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5. It is
sponsored by a coalition of bird conservation groups including Audubon
Chapter of Minneapolis, Minnesota Citizens for the Protection of Migratory
Birds, and Friends of Roberts Bird Sanctuary.



For more information, or to share it with others who may be interested, here
is a link to the event on the Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis Facebook page:

The next gathering of the Minnesota "Global Birders" group will feature a
presentation by Robin and Suzanne Oxley on birding in Costa Rica. Good
infrastructure, a stable government, many ecolodges, a large percentage of
preserved land, and great diversity of habitats and birds make it an ideal
place for a do-it-yourself birding trip.



Along with pictures of birds they saw, their presentation will describe
their process of planning an independent birding tour -- birding resources
used, the places stayed, and tips and suggestions.



This will again be held in the community room at the Walker Library in
Uptown, which has lots of room and excellent presentation equipment.



Monday, April 23, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Walker Library, 2880 Hennepin Ave. S (at Lagoon), Minneapolis

Came home from work yesterday to shovel walks and found a rather large flock of red wing black birds gathered in our maple tree. I had filled a squirrel feeder box with shelled corn, and they were taking turns at it. The squirrel, of course, was hanging by one foot off of a finch feeder instead.
Goldfinches are beginning to change into breeding color, some are nearly all yellow again.
