Hi all!
Trying to send this message a second time.

Did a roadside survey of the ag-related sites in mid-Island
and counted 22, then an additional 4-5 at other sites this morning.

The Island is about 35 sq.miles with mostly deciduous and boreal forest.

Subject: [wisb] Island Dickcissels
Washington Island is also hosting a good bunch of Dickcissels:
The Island is 36 sq. miles large and mostly deciduous and boreal forest ...
I did a roadside survey of the ag-related sites (hay, crops, fallow)
mostly in the center of the Island and
counted about 22 plus a few more in other spots this morning ...

Subject: [wisb] Urgent BBS Route Opening
I just found out that my observer for the Crandon BBS route will not be able to run it this year. Time is running short so this is the reason for my urgent plea. Can any BBS veteran step up and run it this year? Maybe someone that is heading up to Atlas workshop? Please let me know if you can and I would make the arrangements to have the route packet sent to you.

Thank you

Always a fun sighting, but I do see them occasionally in my Columbia Co

Subject: [wisb] news on Purple Martins this week in east-central WI
From Dick Nikolai, WI Purple Martin bander: Please note we have experienced
a die-off of our young martins in east-central WI (ages 8-18 days old).
Approximately 70 have died over the course of the past three or four days
due to weather stress or possible disease. A number of them were submitted
to local WDNR. Please pass onto the public to be aware of problems
associated with the weather (cold, wet, cloudy & windy conditions)which
stressed the adults. Adults banded last Friday were beginning to show
stress due to weights being at 44 grams at our site at High Cliff State
Park. At Martin-Fest near Waupun a few males were in the upper 40's and the
females were all in the 50's which is more normal. At 40 grams they are at
starvation and probably will not make it.

hi :)


Because of the rarity of this situation & the fact that is is a currently unfolding, i have taken the liberty to post about it in this group.

For those who have not yet heard, & are interested, there is currently a Red Tail Hawk being raised in a Bald Eagle family's nest on Vancouver Island as one of its own. I watch a fair amount of live nest cams (there is NO live cam on this particular nest) & came across a video about a week ago of a RTH juvie in a BE nest. The one & only David Hancock was on site & while completely enthralled, he was not very optimistic for the immediate future of the juvie. With no precedence having been set for this scenario, the educated guess is that juvie was brought in for food, asked for food, & triggered parent instinct at which time the juvie was fed & cared for. Much to the astonishment of all witnessing, not only is the RTH juvie thriving, but there is NO aggression in the nest which also contains three eaglets. As of today, it is said the juvie will fledge in one week (well before eaglets). Many unknowns for this juvie's future (will it be able to return to nest after fledge? will it lea
rn to hunt? will it identify it's self as a BE? ... ) but as of now, it is going very well.


I would love to be able to post a few links for people to find this info & stay up to date, but i have read that linking is strictly prohibited. So i will just give some info & it should be very easy to find :)


Any up to date info David Hancock will be posting/q&a-ing/commenting on will be on the youtube channel: "Sasse Photo". Their first video of this is from June 4th.



Today a channel was mentioned of a lady who lives there & can access easily. Her first video of this is from March 30th. Her channel is: "Elle1246".


Also David Hancock will post updates on his website: "hancock wildlife . org" (one word)

Hi Tom and Joe,
I considered the Meadowlark as well, but guessed Bobolink because the pictures I saw of Meadowlark fledglings looked to be like there was more definition in the head stripes, but I’m not sure that there is enough info in that photo for me. And I don’t really have much experience with the fledglings of either species.

Joe,
You are correct on the Dickcissel and the Bobolink. I think the bird in the
3rd photo is a baby Bobolink. You can see that the edges of the mouth at the
back look yellow and sort of swollen, that is typical of baby birds that are
still being fed by their parents. When they open their mouths the yellow
color signals the parents to stuff food in. Bobolinks nest on the ground so
that is where you would find the youngsters.

Subject: [wisb] Wyoming trip
I spent the last 2+ weeks vacationing in Yellowstone and Teton Nat. Parks. It has been 11 years since I was last there, but this was about my 55th time visiting the area over the years. I left WI on the 9th and returned yesterday (24th). It was a great time viewing the various birds along the way (Badlands, Black Hills and Bighorns) plus in the two parks. The animals were also excellent. Between the two parks I tallied 15 Grizzly bears ( including sows with cubs), 10 Black bears (again some sows with cubs) and two wolf packs: the Prospect Peak pack that had its den near Slough Creek (5 adults and 5 pups) and the Junction Butte pack in Lamar Valley (7 adults). It was great watching all these plus elk, Mt Goats, Bighorn Sheep, bison (thousands) coyotes, etc. The birding was also good with various endemics seen. For Yellowstone Park I had 100 species and for Teton Park I had 124 species. For the entire trip I had 203 species. They had a lot of snow during the winter so the flo
wers were behind normal. The weather was interesting as the first night in Cooke City it snowed so Tuesday morning there was several inches on my vehicle. The Beartooth Highway was closed for half that day, as was Donraven Pass. The highway reclosed for several more days due to wind and snow. It was not a problem in the parks however.
This was a great memory trip for me after not being out there for some time. A thoroughly enjoyable and great time. Now back to reality and Wisconsin birding----and of course yard work, etc.

This morning at Bakken's pond in Lone Rock I saw a pair of Sandhill cranes,
a Yellow-throated vireo, heard one Warbling vireo, 2 C. Grackles (probably
a pair), at least 30 Tree swallows including some juveniles, and a pair of
Swans. Finally got to see a Prothonotary warbler on the walk back singing
right on a downed log above water near the dike entrance. It was a fair
morning of birding, I was on the search for shorebirds and herons mostly.

Subject: [wisb] Trumpeter Hatching! Polk County
Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to report that our Trumpeter Swans nested on Rainbow Pond hatched their eggs late yesterday, right on time at 34 days incubation. Although very sneaky and hiding frequently, it appears that their are 2 cygnets swimming around following Mom. It’s an honor to witness these remarkable creatures on our pond. If and when the opportunity presents itself, I’ll try to digiscope them and post a link to the photos (expect nothing as professional as other colleague’s photos on this line). This is the 3rd time Trumpeters have nested on the pond, though not in successive years. The first pair were banded some years ago though these are not. Possibly they represent offspring of the originals.

Best birding!

Subject: [wisb] Update Ruby-throated Hummingbird nest
My best estimate is that yesterday afternoon one of the hummer chicks
hatched and since then so has another. According to iBird, they lay 2 eggs
and it looks like she may be feeding a second one. The nest is only 6 feet
off ground, it would be very easy to look in there but I thought it would be
best not too.

Here's a link to the video, at about 43 seconds you can see one of the
little heads.

I've discovered a Ruby-throated Hummingbird nest in the Village of Oregon
last week.

Finally the winds have died down enough to take another video this morning.
This 2-1/2 minute video was compressed from a 16 minute video of which she
spent about 13 minutes on the nest. I was surprised to see her adding what
looks like pieces of leaves to the outside of the nest. She's a busy little
creature and really hanged in there the past couple of days with all the
wind we were having.

You can view a few videos and a picture on this Flickr album:

Hi all,
One place I have never birded was the County Grounds Park in Wauwatosa
Wisconsin. This morning I met up with Bruce there as he frequents this
place often and we did some birding around the park. Some of the birds we
saw were Dickcissels, Eastern Meadowlarks, and very many Savannah Sparrows.
On the many acres of gentle hilly terrain, there are some nice foot trails
there to bird from. Amazingly on some of that property you would think you
were out in the middle of nowhere, not in the middle of a city. It appeared
the Savannahs were nesting everywhere.

A few images taken this morning at the link below if you care to view them:

In the past, it seems that the Black-necked Stilts hatched their first
chicks during the 3rd week of June, around Father's Day. So, this morning
when I went to the area west of the historical marker on STH49 where we have
seen Black-necked Stilts on apparent nests this spring, I was expecting to
see some fuzzy little chicks. To my surprise, there were 3 juveniles
foraging with the adults. Much too advanced in plumage to be called chicks,
they had the basic color pattern of the adults but were browner,
scaly-backed, and the legs were quite dull. They must have had favorable
breeding conditions early this spring.

Paul,
This morning I had all the Warbler species you mentioned, and as you
guessed all were along the road to the boat landing. I didn't take the
time to put details on their locations in ebird, so below is some better
information which should be helpful.
Cerulean- many were singing along the road to the landing, found from bluff
top all the way down to the boat landing.

Prothonotary- one was singing at the boat landing

Kentucky - singing to the SE of the road, most of the way to the bottom,
about 1/4 mile east of the railroad tracks

Yellow-throated - two were singing at their traditional location in the
pines, right at the intersection of the boat landing road and the road to
the Passenger Pigeon Monument

Good luck this week. Birds were singing up a storm, but not making
themselves easily seen today.

Hello Wisconsin Birders,
Greetings from just over the border.

I’ll be visiting Wyalusing State Park this week for a few hours, and was hopeful someone might be able to help me as to where to focus. My guess is the road leading to the boat landing? My target birds are Prothonotary, Cerulian and Kentucky Warbler, and Yellow Throated. Hoping to get some nice photos, so I’m guessing just drive slowly along this road and carefully listen?

Ebird lists all of these species there at the park, actually seen today, but no real information as to where to go specifically in the park.

Thanks you for any help.

Subject: [wisb] Nesting Great-crested flycatchers and Kingfishers Sawyer County
The past few weeks I've had the pleasure of watching these two species nesting in my back yard. I'm really not certain which has been more entertaining, the flycatchers or the kingfishers.

The nest building of the flycatchers has been interesting for sure, especially observing all the different materials that the female has used now during construction. It started with larger pieces of straw from an area of newly planted grass. This was followed by rootlets and dried oak leaves from last fall, then afterwards many trips of dried white pine needles. Hoping this species would nest, last summer I had collected and bagged two large shed skins from garter snakes in the area. It wasn't more than 5 minutes after placing them out that she found them and hauled them in. Apparently there were several more in the area as I witnessed her bring in two others over the next couple of days. The last bits of material seemed to be rabbit fur and golden retriever hair both of which I placed out for anyone's taking. She is now incubating and the male spends a lot of time perched on top of the house patrolling their airspace. He seems to really enjoy chasing off the phoebes and wo
od pewee's both nesting out back as well.


The kingfishers started excavating earlier this spring and actually dug three different tunnels before finally deciding on one of them. They make their presence well known during that time but during incubation (most if not all was done by the female) they are quite quiet. I did see the male arrive once with a sunfish and perch down my the pond giving his continuous rattle. The female finally flew out and was fed, and then returned to the nest about an hour later to continue incubation. There was one point that I thought perhaps they lost the nest or something happened to one of the adults as activity seemed to come to a complete halt or at least so it seemed. However then the eggs hatched and that all changed. I was lucky enough to catch the female removing an eggshell one afternoon and soon after that the male started delivering small minnows.


What amazed me the most about them was the increase in the size of the fish delivered just a few days later.


Below is a link to a few of the Great-crested flycatcher photos, including one of the female with a snake skin. I'm hopeful more will follow if the nest is successful. I've only had them nest one other time and that nest was unfortunately destroyed by ants. I've also included another link with several shots of the kingfishers coming and going during the day as they bring food to the young.

Subject: [wisb] BUFF-BELLIED HUMMINGBIRD - NO
Unfortunately, the bird was not seen coming to the feeder during the entire day. So it’s fair to suggest that it’s moved along.
I’ve made some new contacts from hummingbird lovers all over. A master hummingbird bander from New Orleans who has a lot of experience over the years with this species related to me that “Buffys are known for making a brief appearance.”

I’ve contacted some neighbors I know and one has a hummingbird feeder, so we’ll both keep a lookout these next couple of days. You guys of course will be the first to know if it shows up again.

Fun weekend!

Subject: [wisb] Red-headed Woodpeckers nesting in St. Francis
Hello all,
After Cathy D posted about the cool grassland birds at the WE Energies
grasslands adjacent to the Cousins Center/Seminary Woods, I headed over
there to find them. Sure enough, at least three Dickcissels were present
(two singing males at once and one female), and I've never seen them there
in five years of birding the area. One male Bobolink was there and 2 or 4
meadowlarks. While checking out these birds, I glimpsed a Red-headed
Woodpecker in the distance. It flew into some mature trees on the southern
periphery of the prairie. I made a mental note to go over to the Seminary
Woods to see if I saw it again over there, as that is where we saw the pair
starting mid-May. Tom Wood had seen them, then I saw them the next day, and
I saw them at least two other times through early June. Well, luckily, I
saw the Red-headed leave the treeline and got it in my bins--with a
mouthful of food! It was flying back towards the Cousins Center. I was
excited to manage a crappy doc photo and post it to the ebird atlas.

Good birding,

--

I ran my BBS on Friday in the southern part of the state. My 21st year of running it and I established my personal high for total number of Dickcissels and at the greatest number of stops. Definitely a banner year for this species.

This is also a public service announcement for all BBS volunteers to get out and run your routes. They must be run by July 7th. Please consider entering your data online before the middle of July. Thank you for your service.

People are welcome to stop by tomorrow, with the exception of the time window 12:45 - 3:00 (my girlfriend has clients at her home office; the feeder is right outside the office, thanks for understanding). Reach me by my email and I’ll give you my address if you intend to stop by.

Hi all

I'd really appreciate recommendations for bird song that helps you
when you can't see the bird, but are listening and trying to figure
out who is singing a particular song so you can then ID which bird I'm
hearing

I hear so much more than I see, but there doesn't seem to be anything
out there on the web that goes from song to bird, or gives you hints
like "if you hear this pattern, then listen to these possible bird
songs."

I'm at the place similar to a frustrated student when they don't know
how to spell something and are told to look it up in the dictionary.
Um, yeah, some words you need to know how to spell first nn order to
find in a dictionary. <grin>

Sure looks like a Buff-bellied Hummingbird to me! This would be a first

can be worked out for birders to come and see this bird.

This guy has shown up at our feeder two times this morning from 10-11 a.m.. I’ve put three photos on my photo gallery on my blog (sorry, I don’t have a Flickr account and wanted to get this out there asap).
Much larger than Ruby-throated, that red bill is very vibrant. Rufous tail, buff belly, all green head.

We live in Grafton, on Lake Michigan. If the bird continues to show up, we’ll figure out a way for people to visit.

Subject: [wisb] Chuck Will's Widow in its usual spot
Tonight we drove over to the place on Young Road near Palmyra on the
Walworth-Jefferson County line. We arrived at about 8:30 and started
hearing the bird from some distance away about 8:45. There were also
several Whippoorwills singing in the area, a few Wood Thrushes, a Scarlet
Tanager and a handful of more common species.
The location we heard it was along Young Road (AKA County Line Rd.) about
1/2 mile west of Tamarack Road. In the past we've heard it a little
farther west so it's worth listening in a few areas along the way.

On 6.1.17 4:30p observed eaglet vigorously jumping and flapping wings still on nest. Adult eagle also observed near nest perched on a branch. Also observed a second eaglet (writer suspected another and observed second eaglet last week). Second eaglet less active, much smaller, did flap wings but appears much weaker and less advanced. Larger eaglet approached smaller one while jumping which induced smaller eaglet to flap it's wings. Age of large eaglet approximate of 70 days or nearing flying age. Sherryl Stolte Portage WI

Outstanding Bayfield Peninsula birder, Ben Baldwin, found two yellow kingbirds this evening in far northern Bayfield County. He reports one is a Western Kingbird and the other is a Tropical/Couch's. The latter did not vocalize but some features, while still needing scrutiny, seem to point to Tropical. The birds were still present when Ben left at 7:30pm.

Some of Ben's photos of the bird can be seen here:

Three kingbird species within feet of each other in the same frame!

The location is the field east of the intersection of Old Cty Hwy K and Little Sand Bay Rd, mapped here:

I imagine we'll have an update to share early tomorrow. Congrats Ben on this great find!

So, the difficult realization of what Jim has beautifully documented is
that these fields of, yes, invasives, will potentially be mowed before the
nests can mature. Any suggestions from readers employed by the DNR, County
Parks or Wildlife groups would be appreciated. I happen to know

I made the trip over to the Rock in Franklin in Milwaukee Co. early this
morning to see if any of the Dickcissels that have been recently reported

Subject: [wisb] Re: Internet bird songs
A good library is Xeno Canto: http://www.xeno-canto.org

Another place to look for user-submitted sounds is eBird. You can use
the Explore Data > Species Map (http://ebird.org/ebird/map/) and, once
you choose a species, on the right hand side is a checkbox that allows
you to filter sightings to "Explore Rich Media", and each "A" marker
on the map is an audio recording. This is nice for finding recordings
in a specific area, but sometimes the quality isn't the greatest.

Both http://allaboutbirds.org and http://www.audubon.org also have
sounds for each species profiled.

Good luck!

Subject: [wisb] Internet bird songs
Dear Birders:
A friend of ours would like to have a way to listen to some common bird
songs.
We are sending her info on some CD recordings. But perhaps better would be
an internet source. Is there any place on the internet (she is not an
App's user) that she could access, type or click the name of the bird, and
get the song played?

Thanks!

Good birding................ Paul & Glenna

After conducting point counts for the Atlas this morning, I tallied 40 Dickcissels in little more than an hour and ten miles of effort across the Benoit field areas of Bayfield County. Smaller numbers are occurring elsewhere in the region, providing further affirmation of their influx into even the northern tier of the state.

I've discovered a Ruby-throated Hummingbird nest in the Village of Oregon
last week.

Finally the winds have died down enough to take another video this morning.
This 2-1/2 minute video was compressed from a 16 minute video of which she
spent about 13 minutes on the nest. I was surprised to see her adding what
looks like pieces of leaves to the outside of the nest. She's a busy little
creature and really hanged in there the past couple of days with all the
wind we were having.

Hi all,
A place I always check out about the first of June each year is North Point
Park in Sheboygan. It usually has some action and today was no different.
Guessing there were between 200-300 American White Pelicans on the rocky
point. What beautiful birds! Some fished out on the open water, some slept
on the rock, some just hung out but these birds are preening machines as
that is what they did the most. It was an enjoyable early morning watching
these majestic birds in action coming and going from the point.

A few images of American White Pelican action that took place this morning
at the link below if you care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] Common Merganser
Last night, just after sunset, I was coming back across Long Lake in
southeastern Fond du Lac County when I encountered a drake Common Merganser
near the middle of the lake. This bird must have been seeking shelter from
the open water during the day due to the heavy weekend boating traffic, but
was sighted in open water in the evening.
It did not fly but simply paddled its way across the surface with its wings
and feet for a short distance to get out of my way. I don't know if the
bird was simply reluctant to fly or injured, but I think this is far too
early for it to be molting its flight feathers. I was not able to make out
much more of the birds condition in the fading light.

Common Merganser is a somewhat common spring migrant on the larger lakes in
the Northern Kettle Moraine, but this is a very late record, so I was
surprised to encounter this bird here.

From: Jeff Baughman <jlbirder...>
Subject: [wisb] WSO's KMSF-NU Field Trip report
2017 WSO Field Trip to Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit.
On Saturday, June 3, at 6:00 AM, 21 people gathered at Mauthe Lake
Recreation Area for the WSO’s Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit
field trip. The weather started fine with temps in the low 60’s and no
wind. But checking the local radar we knew the conditions were going to
change within the hour, none the less, our group set out for a morning of
birding.

Our route for the day included; Mauthe Lake Recreation Area, Haskell Noyes
Memorial Forest, Haushalter Lane (northeast of New Prospect), Jersey Flats
(a prairie restoration project), the KMSF-Iceage Center, the Dundee
baseball field, Spruce Lake Bog and this year an extension to Parnell Tower
Recreation Area.

After everyone arrived, we birded around Mauthe Lake and soon we found our
target birds, Yellow-throated Vireo, Cerulean and Pine Warblers, all found
in the picnic area. Fortunately, both warblers afforded us pretty good
looks as they sang high in the trees. Other birds of note were Veery
(with several singing), Black-and-White and Chestnut-sided Warblers. With
all the rain we have had of late, the road and trail to the boat landing
were under water so we missed a few species but Mauthe still produced 52
species seen/heard on the morning.

After Mauthe, we made a couple minute stop along CTH GGG, at the Haskell
Noyes Memorial Forest, where we heard Acadian Flycatcher, Winter Wren, Wood
Thrush, Scarlet Tanager and a few other more common birds. The Winter Wren
has been here for 2-weeks and is at a new location in the state forest for
me.

Haushalter Lane was next, but thick dark clouds were building and we knew
were going to get wet. Our target bird here was Hooded Warbler and a short
way up the road we had one singing. Unfortunately, we never had a look at
it before the heavy rains started. Looking at the radar, we were in for
heavy rains for another 45 minutes so we decide to wait it out at the
Zillmer Trail ski/hiking shelter.

After about a 40-minute wait, we then headed back to Haushalter Lane.
Unfortunately, the Hooded Warbler we had earlier was no longer singing nor
were others I have had along this road. Although, we had great scope looks
at an Acadian Flycatcher singing about 30 feet off the road. We continued
to the end of Haushalter and hiked a short way on the trails that lead east
and north. The east trail produced Nashville, Blue-winged, Black-and-White
and Chestnut-sided Warblers, Least, Alder and Great Crested Flycatchers,
Field Sparrow, Eastern Towhee and a calling Pileated Woodpecker.

The trail north afforded us looks good looks at Alder Flycatcher,
Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Cedar Waxwing, Swamp Sparrow, Rose-breasted
Grosbeak, plus several other common birds. On the drive back out we added
Black-throated Green Warbler and Ovenbird but looks at a Hooded Warbler
still eluded us. Where Haushalter Lane and CTH SS intersect, I often have
Morning Warbler. Well, we weren’t disappointed. A male put on a nice 5
minutes show for us here. Our split stay on Haushalter Lane resulted in 56
species.

Our next stop was about 0.3 miles north of the intersection of CTH SS & G
at Jersey Flats. From here we could hear 3-4 Henslow’s Sparrows singing and
eventually we had one in the scope for everyone to see. While people were
taking turns at the scope, I heard my first Grasshopper Sparrow of the year
from this location. With a little searching, we had this bird in the scope
for everyone to see as well. We also had Clay-colored, Song, Savannah,
Chipping, and Field Sparrow from this stop – 7 species of sparrows! We also
had Eastern Meadowlark and a Northern Harrier cruise by too. The grasslands
and the surrounding area produced 40 species.

We decided to make a stop at the Iceage Center for a restroom break and to
see if the White-eyed Vireo and Canada Warbler I had a couple days prior
were there. Neither were found so after a short stay we head to the
baseball field on the south side of Dundee.

One of the traditions for this trip is to stop here at the ballfield to
view the Ospreys at their nest site. I’m fairly certain this is the 19th
year a pair of Ospreys has used this site to raise their young. And this
year, while watching an adult on the nest, its mate came in from the south
carrying a stick. At to our delight, the mate readily accepted it.

From here we drove a short distance north to Spruce Lake Bog. On the way,
we added Red-tailed and a couple of cars had a Red-shouldered Hawk fly over
them. At the bog it was getting late in the morning and only a few birds
were singing. We did have Veery, Nashville Warbler, and Alder Flycatcher
singing, but the White-throated Sparrow I usually get here were not to be
found. We had Tree, Northern Rough-winged, Barn and Bank Swallows as we got
back to our cars. As always, a bonus at Spruce Lake Bog is all the Pink
Lady-slippers and Pitcher Plants in full bloom.

Because we hadn’t gotten to see a Hooded Warbler, I decided to extend the
trip and take the group to another reliable site for this species; Parnell
Tower Recreation Area. Our drive to this area passes by several pretty
birdy areas. At the intersection of CTH V and Scenic Drive, there is a nice
fallow field where we added Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlarks. Then, along
Shamrock Road a few of us saw Great Egret and Pied-billed Grebe.

Once at Parnell Tower Recreation Area we began our search for Hooded
Warbler. One good site here is just behind the restrooms. Unfortunately, no
birds were singing so we walked down a short trail into an area that often
has hosted a Hooded. With a little coaxing, we did get a bird to respond
but he wouldn’t come in and went deeper into the poison-ivy infested trail.
A couple minutes later I heard another bird a little south of the restrooms
and it seemed to closer to the brushy edge. Well, about 5-minutes later we
were all looking at a splendid male Hooded Warbler singing only 20 feet
away. Everyone was super excited that our search was successful.

Although birds were singing, the level of birdsong and activity was well
below what it had been in previous days. Fortunately, we still were able to
see most of the target species our group wanted to see. And as always there
were some misses; both cuckoos, Willow Flycatcher, Louisiana and Northern
Waterthrush, Canada and Blackburnian Warblers and plus a few late migrants.
Our day netted 88 species, a somewhat lower total than I had hoped for, but
we did hear or see 12 species of warblers, 8 species of sparrows, and 7
species of flycatchers.

Thanks to everyone that attended. I sure enjoyed spending the morning with
you all.

Not in wet areas - they probably nest on Peck Rd. near the Sauk/Richland Co. line, Hakim. It's always been a reliable spot for them in southern Wisconsin. They're easily found in the bog areas at Buena Vista and in Jackson County, too.

Free Event
You are invited to join the Horicon Marsh Bird Club as we lead a field trip to observe and document breeding bird activity in areas around the Horicon Marsh. Unsure how to find breeding birds or document them? You’re not alone! But it’s easier than you might think, and experienced birders from the Horicon Marsh Bird Club will be there to show you how!

We plan on meeting at 7:30 am on Saturday June 10th in the upper lobby of the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center located on Highway 28 between the towns of Horicon and Mayville. From there we will travel to areas around the Horicon Marsh to hone our bird observation skills and document nesting bird species. After a few hours of surveying we will return to the Education Center at 10 am to demonstrate how to enter our breeding bird observations into the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas’s designated website. We will also answer any questions you might have about how to classify bird behavior and about the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas.

When: June 10

Where: Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. N7725 Hwy 28. Horicon WI 53032

Subject: [wisb] Re: WSO Atlas Field Trip in Juneau County Saturday
Hi All,

Note the trail at Bass Hollow is nice and wide for the most part. However the hike does involve some up and down. It's nothing incredibly steep, but there is some scree on some of the slopes. I have hiked this several times. Since I sometimes am balanced challenged, I find use of trekking poles beneficial at this location. I will bring a spare set. If someone wishes to claim them for use prior to arrival, please backchannel me.

Also we will be out several hours. So having a day pack or fanny pack with water, snacks and a bag lunch is essential. The forecast high for Saturday is 89. However it looks like the morning should be fairly comfortable (in the 70s). There are no bathrooms along the trail, but lots of bushes. :) There is a bathroom at the parking area.

This is an awesome place to visit. We should encounter several Mourning Warblers, Acadian Flycatcher, hopefully Cerulean Warbler, Red-headed Woodpecker and more! Perhaps we will even find a surprise Kentucky Warbler which has been reported at this location in the past. Looking forward to it!

We had a male orchard oriole enjoying the grape jelly feeder this

are emptying out the jelly feeder daily this year. We've never had so
many, sometimes as many as 5 at once jostling for their turn.

I biked the Mascoutin Valley Trail today.  It is just west of Fond Du Lac.  About a mile or so down the trail, I heard a Northern Mockingbird.  I was raised in Missouri and we had Mockingbirds every spring.  I know their call like I know the Cardinal.  I noted this on E-Bird and they said it was listed as rare in this state at this time so I'm notifying this site.  I also heard two sora rails but they are not Wisconsin rare.

Jim and all,

Thanks very much for the wonderful pix of Trumpeter Swans and cygnets from Horicon Marsh. Here on Rainbow Pond in Polk County, our nested Trumpeter pen diligently and steadfastly remains on her nest in spite of frequent challenges from Canadian Geese. We hope to see cygnets soon, though my amateur digiscoped pix will be nowhere near the quality of your photos.
Thanks again.

Subject: [wisb] Trumpeter Swans with Cygnets - Horicon Marsh Dodge Co. 6/6/17, some images...
Hi all,
I thought it was time to head up to the Horicon Marsh to see what was going
on and glad I did. One of the highlights of the day was watching one
Tumpeter Swan, then two, along with the cygnets feed and paddle around.
When the second adult joined the group, there appeared to be some great
trumpet sounds, really, like welcome back to the family! The two adults
stirred the bottom by paddling and brought probably up aquatic insects
which is what they eat at this age. It was an exciting time watching these
adult swans doing their routine feeding the young with no distractions.

Images of some of the action from today at this link if you care to view
them:

Subject: [wisb] Sheboygan Gulls today
I did not find the Laughing Gull reported by Margaret Brasser, but for a
while there was an adult, or near adult Franklin's Gull out on the water off
of North Beach. I could not find it again after lunch, so it may have just
dropped in for a rest. Sheboygan is shaping up to be good for Lesser
Black-backed Gulls again this year; I saw at least 8 first cycle, 2 second
cycle, and 1 third cycle today. There may have been more of the first
cycle, but I find them difficult to identify unless they are standing right
next to a Herring Gull. The immature Herring Gulls right now are really
confusing- some very strongly sun bleached, others with dark feathers that
suggest some other species.
I saw one Great Black-backed Gull, and from the Youth Sailing Club I saw a
lingering Glaucous Gull which was probably a highly bleached first cycle
bird. When I looked out at the breakwall I knew what I was about to find
without using optics. This bird towered over all the other gulls and was
brilliant white in the sun.
I looked through the 60+ Bonaparte's Gulls and couldn't find a Little Gull.
There were many American White Pelicans out on the point for a while. Like
last year, people were lining up at the point to take photos. Unfortunately,
some rude gentleman decided he wanted to take a walk out on the point,
picked up a stick, and scared all the birds away. I guess he thought he was
the VIP there and all the other people wanting to photograph or see the
birds didn't matter. I ran into Jim Hess and he said the birds have a record
of coming back after being shooed off the point.

Subject: [wisb] Laughing Gull in Sheboygan : )
Monday afternoon (June 5) among the hundreds of Ring-billed & Herring Gulls
and dozens of Caspian & Common & Forsters Terns on the large sandy Northside
Bathing Beach in Sheboygan, we spotted a single black-hooded gull as we were
scanning the flock from the covered shelter above the beach (along Broughton
Drive), using binoculars. [How's that for a run-on sentence?! : ) ]
Noting that it was too large for a Bonaparte's (who are usually also part of
a "herd" anyway), we checked it with the spotting scope and found all the
necessary field marks for Laughing Gull. : )
Meanwhile, the pelicans (and the hundreds of Sheboyganites of all ages who
are marveling at them and taking lots of pictures) continue periodically at
North Point in Sheboygan and on the jetties north and south of North Point.
Sometimes there are 200+ pelicans loafing on North Point, other times just a
few there and on the jetties and floating in the sparkling waters of Lake
Michigan. : )
Sheboygan: a great destination for birds and birders! : )

Meadowlark. Also saw many Kingbirds.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/tjsimage/albums/72157675544863243

This is a wonderful birding site, so if it is possible for you to get
here, I think it would be worth a visit.

It is near Port Washington. It is a very diverse preserve, mostly Oak
Savanna, but also many ponds, and it is next to Lake Michigan,

so there is generally lots to see.

Subject: [wisb] Snowy Egret, Manitowoc County
About 9:30 this morning I found a Snowy Egret at Point Creek Park, Manitowoc County. It was still in place when I left. Perhaps with this stiff NE wind it might stay awhile. If interested, park in the parking lot (which is along LS just south of County F) and walk to the mouth of Point Creek. Then walk along the trails going up creek from the mouth some 200 yards. You will come to a large willow tree that has fallen into the creek. The egret was perched in the death branches of a deciduous tree some 50 yards beyond this willow. If still in place, it would be difficult to miss against the dark background. This is a full adult in breeding plumage.

Subject: [wisb] YB Chat - Mud Lake W.A. (Columbia Co.)
Jim Otto alerted me to a Yellow-breasted Chat that he found at Mud Lake Wildlife Area in Columbia Co. on Friday, so I went up there today. (And kudos to Jim for his yeoman efforts in atlasing what is nominally my block, not that I ever do much of it myself - ahem.) As soon as I turned onto Drake Rd. from Hagan Rd., I could hear the Chat vocalizing. This was close to noon, and it "sang" off and on for the next hour or more, moving about the cutover and burned area southwest of Drake and Hagan, most often in the section that still has some tall standing pines. Even though it was quite close to the road at times, I only ever had brief glimpses of it flying to a new location, and never saw it perched. (The cutover area is full of slash and raspberries, so it's very difficult to navigate on foot, especially for those of us with some mobility issues.) It's a very talented individual. Jim said he heard it imitating a bit of woodpecker drumming on Friday, and I heard it do a passable
"bob-white" once.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many birds were still singing in the early afternoon, and it's relatively easy to see them perched up in the remaining taller trees with the understory just regenerating. There were several Orchard Orioles, including a first-spring male singing an interesting, burry song that I initially mistook for a tanager's. My other "year" bird was a Yellow-billed Cuckoo calling from the north side of Drake, which is private property. Also had Blue-winged Warblers on both sides of the road. Jim had asked me to keep an ear cocked for singing Empidonax flycatchers, since he's heard some there that defy easy ID by voice. I only heard one, and it was one such individual. It sounded as though it was singing "fitz-beer", and never gave a clear "fitz-bew" or "free-beer". I'm inclined to call it a Willow because of the tone and habitat, but I can't rule out Alder.


Wish I'd gotten up there earlier, but a rotten night's sleep wasn't making me too bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning...

Subject: [wisb] Grassland sparrows today
Lots of Vesper sparrows and another lone Dickcissel singing in the weeds
near Tri-County Regional Airport in Spring Green. Listen closely for the
song of the Vesper sparrows before you try to find them. Best places are
along the edge of County Line Rd. headed north through the farmlands and on
Porter Rd. and Mercer Rd. where there is tall grass mixed with treeline on
the edge. Look out for Savannah sparrows deeper in the overgrown pasture
where Porter hits Mercer (lots of them singing lately). Good birding!

Subject: [wisb] Snowy Owl near Waupun
Hi all,
I was alerted to a Snowy Owl near Waupun on Memorial Day. I observed
it for a couple of hours that evening and have checked on it twice since.
It is still in the same general area, and from talking to the locals, it
has been there for some time before Memorial Day. There has been quite a
bit of consternation about the bird's health on social media, but I feel
the bird looks and acts healthy. It is alert and active, preens actively
and flies strongly. I have not seen it catch prey yet, but I wouldn't
completely expect to in 3 hours of observing. It did appear to possibly
have blood on it's feet when preening. A number of people have been made
aware of this bird and if it appears to be struggling then steps will be
taken.

Pics are up at the Birding Wisconsin Facebook page or you can see them on
my pbase site.

Greetings. Saw two very hungry Song Sparrows today, 6/3 at SANC,
Bayside, after the rain. Got 2 nice shots of Red eyed vireo on 6/1.

The red eye is very apparent in the sun, but generally looks darker on
most days. Saw a Canada Warbler today also, but did not get a picture.

Subject: [wisb] Schurch-Thomson Prairie (Iowa Co.) today
After the rain cleared out, I headed down to the prairies southwest of Madison. At Thomson Memorial Prairie on County F south of Barneveld, there were Dickcissels along the road , and a very vocal and displaying Upland Sandpiper right across the road from the informational sign. I was a little surprised not to hear any sparrows, except for one Clay-colored on the east side of the road.

A few miles farther south on F, at Schurch-Thomson Prairie, there were more Dickcissels along Reilly Rd. as I drove in to the parking area. I heard a Henslow's Sparrow as soon as I got out of the car. There were quite a few along the mowed two-track out into the prairie, along with Bobolinks, and I finally heard some Grasshopper Sparrows as I got to the shorter grasses where the path starts to go downhill. There was a Bell's Vireo singing in the shrubby area to the right. It moved around a lot, and I ended up finally seeing it down at the bottom of the swale.


It was starting to get very warm, so I took the steeper mowed path along the backside of the shrubby woods, as that was largely in the shade. A Baltimore Oriole was building a nest in one of the larger trees. Back by the thicker woods near the parking lot, a pair of E. Bluebirds were busy feeding young out in the open area. There also were now Grasshopper Sparrows singing by the parking lot. On my way out, I heard another Bell's Vireo along Reilly Rd., which had to be a different bird.


Nice to finally get some grassland birds...

Subject: [wisb] Atlas season fully underway!
Yesterday a fantastic morning of atlasing one of my blocks near Mason, Bayfield County, yielded 1,114 individuals of 79 species. 552 Canada Geese headed north to molt on the Canadian tundra padded that total a bit. Late migrants included two each of Olive-sided and Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, a Swainson's Thrush, and small flocks of Cedar Waxwings. Breeding highlights were 12 Golden-winged Warblers, 12 Mourning Warblers, 24 Chestnut-sided Warblers, 28 Common Yellowthroats, as well as Savannah Sparrows, Bobolinks, Eastern Meadowlarks, and N. Harriers juxtaposed with Winter Wrens, Brown Creepers, and Golden-crowned Kinglet. Turkeys are still gobbling and Ruffed Grouse drumming. I confirmed breeding for Belted Kingfisher (nest hole in an old sand pit), Turkey Vulture (nesting in a run-down trailer parked in the woods!), Chestnut-sided Warbler (female building nest), Cliff Swallow (occupied nests under a bridge), Black-and-white Warbler (carrying nest material), and Indigo Bunting (also
carrying nest material).


Atlasing is so fun -- all Wisconsin birders should be doing it!

Subject: [wisb] Wyalusing State Park, part 2/ Grant County
I went back to Wyalusing this morning and started birding near the park office. The hummingbirds are much fewer in numbers at the office this year.
I thought I heard a Yellow-breasted Chat call from the area between the two legs of the Turkey Hollow Trail on the east side of the park road. I went over there and stayed for about 1/2 hour but never heard or saw the bird. It may have just been passing through that area. I walked a short distance down the Turkey Hollow Trail hoping to hear it again, but instead heard a White-eyed Vireo. It eventually came into view at eye level, so that was a treat.
I checked the road going down to the boat landing and it was still barricaded. A trip to Wyalusing is not complete until you see a Prothonotary Warbler so I decided to try taking the Sugar Maple Nature Trail even though it is quite difficult for my old body.
This was a good decision because a Louisiana Waterthrush was calling continuously from near the Pictured Rock Cave. An Acadian Flycatcher was also nearby and a Scarlet Tanager was overhead in plain view. Two Northern Rough-winged Swallows were diving at me so I must have been near a nest.
The Prothonotaries did not disappoint at the boat landing. A pair came into plain view and flew back and forth over the parking lot a couple of times.
The water level is still pretty high there and the fishing dock appears to be a wreck, but I couldn't see why they didn't want people to drive down there.

Hi all,
It was great to see a Savannah sparrow singing at the end of Porter Rd.
(before it meets Mercer, this is after you cross Highway 14 on Porter
headed north). Took a right on Mercer rd. towards Spring Green preserve and
had a nice Dickcissel singing right in the open beside the road (Lone Rock
area before the preserve). On the way back from the preserve, I had a few
more Savannah and 2 Vespers singing beside Mercer and end of Porter! which
were FOY. Great birding,

Subject: [wisb] Trumpeters vs Honkers! Rainbow Pond, Polk County
Hi all,

Just reporting a nesting update for our Trumpeter Swans on Rainbow Pond. There is definite ongoing competitive behavior between the Trumpeter pair and the multitude of Canadian Honkers that frequent the pond. In fact, last evening there was a deafening uproar as the geese all started honking at once and we could hear the classic “water walking” sounds of the Trumpeters taking off. It was pretty clear that the Trumpeters were actually chasing the Honkers. Curiously, during the brief time that the Trumpeters were in the air and in pursuit of the Honkers, a number of remaining geese actually climbed up the side of the mound containing the Trumpeter nest. Needless to say, the Trumpeters quickly returned and drove them away. Today the pen remains on her nest and of the cob continues to patrol the perimeter around the nest. It was a relief to see them return to the nest since we initially had some fear that the geese had overrun the nest and destroyed the eggs. It is good to see that a
ll appears to remain in order and it is very difficult not to anthropomorphize the whole situation and feel defensive and angry for one bird while wanting to somehow victimize the other. At any rate, I will certainly post again once the cygnets are hopefully born.

Best birding.

Subject: [wisb] yesterday's birds
All
Yesterday I headed into the N Kettle Moraine in hopes of adding to my warbler list. Well, as Meatloaf wisely noted, "two out of three ain't bad. However, I got only one out of three so that sucks. I got blue-winged about 100 yds from the end of Haushalter Rd. Along the same road, I looked for the hooded warbler that Peter Fissel saw the day before but couldn't find it. Didn't find pine warbler anywhere either.

Around noon I went to Manitowoc, and did better mainly because of "a little help from my friends". First I ran into Charles (?) Schroeder (sp?) who pointed out a long-tailed duck inside the impoundment as well as a couple of Franklin's gulls. After he left, local gull guru, Charles Sontag (sp?) appeared. We looked for a little gull for over a hr without luck. At 254, I told Charles that I had to leave at 300 so he had 6 minutes to find the little gull. At 259, Charles said "I've got it". Way to produce under pressure, Chuck! I got a brief scope view on the ground and a good in-flight view. Other birds of interest seen were 2 lesser black-backed gulls and an avocet.

Tomorrow I plan to attend the WSO field trip and maybe get the other two warblers. Bu here's a question. On the WSO homepage it lists two meeting times....0600 and 0800....which is correct?

On 6.1.17 4:30p observed eaglet vigorously jumping and flapping wings still on nest. Adult eagle also observed near nest perched on a branch. Also observed a second eaglet (writer suspected another and observed second eaglet last week). Second eaglet less active, much smaller, did flap wings but appears much weaker and less advanced. Larger eaglet approached smaller one while jumping which induced smaller eaglet to flap it's wings. Age of large eaglet approximate of 70 days or nearing flying age. Sherryl Stolte Portage WI

Subject: [wisb] Wyalusing State Park today (6/1/2017)/Grant County
I think the only thing new that hasn't been reported on this list is that
Dickcissels have arrived in the area. This morning there were at least 3
singing on CTH C and Gasner Hollow Road on my way to the park.
In the park, the road to the boat landing has a barricade. The railroad
workers and at least one visitor drove around the barricade, but I assume
they don't want us to drive down there. I did walk the road down as far as
where the old abandoned road up to the Homestead Picnic area begins. Acadian
Flycatchers were easy to find and there were a few heard-only Cerulean
Warblers. I both heard and saw a Kentucky Warbler about half way back up on
my return walk. It foraged near the road and then disappeared back into the
woods. This was my second Kentucky Warbler sighting for the day as I had
heard and saw another near the tennis courts.
Wood Thrush, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and Baltimore Oriole were the audio
treats on this walk.
In the morning, I checked all the spots where I have found Yellow-throated
Warbler before and had no luck, but at one of these spots, the Homestead
Picnic area, in the afternoon I decided to sit in the shade and just listen
to what was out there, and a Yellow-throated Warbler (heard-only) called
infrequently as it rapidly moved about in the tops of the pines east of the
parking lot.
Yellow-breasted Chat has been reported but I checked all the spots I have
found them before and did not see one. Since I didn't get around to this
search until the afternoon, it may have just gone quiet.
The only Henslow's Sparrow I heard was along the road before I reached the
observatory. They were mowing near the observatory so that may have caused
any birds there to be silent.
The only cuckoo I encountered was a heard only Yellow-billed, heard from one
of the trails east of the observatory.

I spent the early morning checking Horicon Marsh---along 49 and the Auto Tour plus Dodge county ponds. The pump house pond had Semip. Plovers and Sandpipers, a Least and Baird's Sandpiper, Dunlins and 2 Stilt Sandpipers. Black-necked Stilts were here and at the open spot further down. The red boulder pond on the Auto Tour had 2 Stilt Sandpipers, 2 Wilson's Phalaropes, Dunlins, White-rumped Sandpipers.
The Breezy Pt/151 pond had Wilson's Phalaropes, White-rumped, Baird's, Semip. Sandpipers and Dunlins. The Jersey/Breezy Pt pond had Dunlins and Semip. Sandpipers and 1 Black-bellied Plover.

Combining all these shorebird sightings yielded the lone BBPlover, 35 Semip. Plovers, Killdeer, 12+ Black-necked Stilts, 4 Stilt Sandpipers 120 Dunlins, 2 Baird's, 1 Least, 50+ White-rumped and 410 Semip. Sandpipers, 5 Wilson's Phalaropes.

Subject: [wisb] Old Marsh Road
I couldn't resist the opening of Old Marsh Road at Horicon on such a
beautiful day. So I set out from Madison at 5:30am this morning and
landed on Hwy 49 as my first stop. Picked up American Bittern,
Black-necked Stilt, and Black Tern as FOYs there. A LOT of peeps in
the mud flats by the pump house. Sorry to say that I didn't "bird
every bird", but by the looks of it, there wasn't anything too special
in that flock. I scanned for an Ibis, but didn't see one.

My only FOY on Old Marsh Road was a Common Gallinule, but it was a
very pleasant walk. It started with a pair of Nashville Warblers near
the entrance, a sparrow I am having a hard time identifying (see the
photos of the sparrow sp. on my checklist — I think it's a juvenile
Savannah, maybe) and a Great-horned Owl right as the woods open up.
Many Black-crowned Night Herons and Terns flying back and forth over
the road, and Yellow-headed Blackbirds and Marsh/Sedge Wrens
vocalizing. A pair of Northern Harriers did a flyby. I got great views
of a Virginia Rail that came out of hiding. The only notable shorebird
was a pair of Stilt Sandpipers; again, mostly peeps.

After a quick walk back, I headed over to the Auto Tour to pick up
what I could there. Right at the entrance, I had two Bobolinks land in
the field and sing their robotic songs. Made my way around to red rock
and found three Wilson's Phalaropes and another pair of Stilt
Sandpipers. No luck on the King Rails, but didn't stick around too
long before needing to head back home.

Ended up with 72 species between the three lists.

Subject: [wisb] Mockingbird, warblers, Lincoln's Sp Milwaukee
Hello,
Last night I spent nearly 3 hours at Sheridan Park and I spent over an hour
there and about a half hour at the We Energies shrubline this morning.

I had the Mockingbird at the shrubline. It was very skittish. I wonder if
it is the same bird I saw at Sheridan Park a few days ago. Quiet otherwise.

Sheridan was really hopping last night. It was quieter today.

Highlights today:
Late Lincoln's Sparrow
Blackburnian female, Blackpoll young male and Canada female Warblers

Yesterday:
Multiple Blackpolls, redstarts, and Magnolias
Wilson's female
Yellow
Common yellowthroat
Chestnut sided
Mourning
Philadelphia Vireo

Continuing male Orchard Oriole and plenty of vireos and flycatchers both
days.

I'm probably forgetting a few things. My lists are in eBird, though.

Good birding,
Jennifer Ambrose
Milwaukee

Subject: [wisb] Franklin's Gull, Whimbrel, Mockingbird - Bayfield County
Yesterday morning I had a Franklin's Gull along Hwy 13 just north of Hwy 2 on the west side of Ashland as I drove into work. They've been scarce this year but we finally got some west winds. It flew west and wasn't seen again.

This morning my driving-into-work find was a Whimbrel on a big lawn off Ondossagon Rd west of Ashland.


Bay-breasted Warbler last evening and Wilson's Warbler this morning were further evidence of continuing migration.


A new N. Mockingbird was found by a local birder off Jack's Rd west of Ashland in Bayfield County on Tuesday.

Subject: [wisb] Prairie birding this evening (Dane and Iowa Counties)
Hello All,
With my girlfriend doing field work at the Cedar Creek Long Term Ecological
Research station in Minnesota for a few days, I found myself with a free
evening to do a bit of prairie birding. Having not ever birded the prairies
in the state I quickly checked eBird for the closest sites and found that
the Mounds View Grassland--Schurch Thompson Prairie (eastern Iowa Co.),
Thompson Prairie (western Dane Co.), and the Erbe Road Grassland Preserve
(western Dane Co.) were all in the same general area and no more than a 40
minute drive. So, I quickly headed out after feeding myself and the cat.

I started at Schurch Thompson, which quickly yielded a few singing
Henslow's Sparrows and Bobolinks in the grass-dominated prairie (must have
been burned fairly recently). The forby grasslands were dominated by Common
Yellowthroats, Field, and Song Sparrows, while the shrub thickets yielded a
few Orchard Orioles among others. I searched a while for the previously
reported Bell's Vireo in the area but came up empty handed - no Grasshopper
Sparrows either.

I then moved into Dane Co. and birded the area of the Thompson Memorial
Prairie nearest the informational sign. In the 10 or so minutes I birded
there were a few singing Upland Sandpipers and more Bobolinks among the
usual suspects.

The last stop at Erbe Road Grassland finally yielded a few Grasshopper
Sparrows which may be more common there than at the previous two sites due
to the greater forb dominance - though I have only been there once...

A sharp Red-headed Woodpecker was a nice end to a lovely evening on the
prairie. Altogether, 44 species were detected.

Subject: [wisb] Horicon & N. Kettle Moraine today
I took a mental health day off work and went up to Horicon Marsh this morning. I staked out the King Rail area for a while, but didn't see or hear any. It was overcast, cool and windy early. The open area on Hwy 49 southwest of the historical marker had several Black-necked Stilts, but not a lot else. However, there were a couple hundred shorebirds on the mudflats east of the pumphouse. Lots of Dunlin, quite a few Semipalmated Plovers, and a few Wilson's Phalaropes. Many were peeps, and the majority of those were Semipalmated Sandpipers. Also had quite a few White-rumps, and at least a few Baird's (it was still cool and windy and the light was bad at first, so I was pretty much scanning for anything out of the ordinary.) I finally stumbled onto a couple of Stilt SPs, which was the only new bird for me.

The strangest thing I saw was after a Trumpeter Swan flew from well to the south, crossed Hwy 49 at a not-very-healthy altitude (fortunately no trucks going by just then,) and landed north of the pumphouse. I was watching a Forster's Tern hunting, when I heard squawking. There were two Caspian Terns (not a common bird there) harassing the swan, to the point where it finally took off again, with the terns in hot pursuit. I watched until I lost track of the terns as they flew to the north. Weird.


After cruising Ledge Rd. (two close Black-crowned Night Herons, not much else,) I headed over to the No. Kettle Moraine State Forest. I stopped at the Zillmer Trails parking lot on County SS to see if there was a Pine Warbler for Greg Seegert, but all the trills I was sure about were Chipping Sparrows. However, there was a very vocal Mourning Warbler perched up nicely right behind the propane tank by the shelter.


County G is being reconstructed/repaved, but you can can cross it on SS. My next stop was Haushalter Lane. As usual, there was a very vocal Hooded Warbler just south of the pipeline cut, on the west side of the road. Also a few Acadian Flycatchers singing, along with many Red-eyed Vireos, Ovenbirds, and Indigo Buntings. A Blue-winged Warbler buzzed out in the pipeline cut, and there was another a little farther north by the trail junction on the east side of the road.


Up at the north end parking lot, there were more Blue-wings, including one doing an interesting alternate song that sounded a lot like a Northern Parula. Speaking of interesting alternate songs, I kept hearing fragments of what sounded like a White-eyed Vireo's song, but I could never convince myself that's what it was. I ate lunch, and hiked out the trail to the north and over the bridge to the wetland area. On the way back to the car, I heard the "vireo" again, and then saw movement in a bush next to the trail. It was an empid (either an Alder or Willow Flycatcher - I'd heard both there.) I was astonished when I saw it make the call I'd been hearing. There's always something new in birding. (And I'm glad I hadn't marked down a White-eyed Vireo.)


I came back by way of Horicon again. Pretty similar mix of birds as in the morning, and still no King Rails.

Mory Jahangir reported on 5/22 that the refuge was closed due to high water.
The water has receded and the refuge auto tour is now open.
I birded there this afternoon and it was fairly slow going, probably due to
strong winds and the late hour. Orchard Orioles were the highlight for me.
The wildflowers are exceptionally beautiful now with lupine, Hoary Puccoon,

Quite a few cliff swallows are at Bakken's Pond. I usually start to see

Saturday, June 3rd: Late Spring Migrants Walk at Bender Park
Meet at 8:00 AM in the gravel parking lot. (Off Ryan Rd where it ends in
Oak Creek) *Ticks will be present!*
Some migrants like Bobolinks and Dickcissels arrive a little later in
the spring. Bender Park is a great place to possibly see these species.
Last year was a great one for Dickcissel, so we can only hope it’s the same
this year. Savannah, Field and Clay-colored Sparrows nest at Bender Park,
and sometimes a meadowlark or two is present. There is a new road and field
area just north of the park that attracts sparrows, raptors, and other
grassland birds like American Pipits that we might also explore along with
the grassy hilltop at South Metro Pier. These locations could make for an
exciting day of birding!

The warbler migration around Beaver Dam was poor, at least for me. Therefore there were a few warbler spp I missed, namely hooded, pine, and blue-winged. Fortunately all breed in WI and I plan to look for them the next few days. I'd like any suggestions re where to look for these spp within an hr or two of Beaver Dam. I'm thinking about the northern Kettle Moraine area but am open to any an all suggestions re these spp that are on territory

Subject: [wisb] Olive-sided Flycatcher and Canada Goose Molt Migration
I do most of my birding in my backyard and around the Northern Kettle
Moraine. Olive-sided Flycatcher is a bird that I can't always count on
encountering every spring in this area, but this spring was an exception.
I have had an OSFL on four out of five days in the last week in the
backyard and last Friday I had two in the same tree! It appears that one
bird stayed around for several days in a row, but I also sighted one single
bird in the previous two weeks which I would assume were different
individuals.
This is not to assume that Olive-sided Flycatchers are increasing in
numbers, but it was great to have so many sightings of this species in a
single spring.

I also noted the first major movement of molt migrant Canada geese
yesterday. For the past several weeks I have watched non-breeders and
failed breeders moving around as individuals and pairs and slowly forming
flocks. I saw the first large flock a little more than a week ago, but
they were flying low and seemed to be only undertaking local flights to
feed.

Yesterday I saw three flocks of geese numbering between 40 to 65 birds
flying high and heading north. I always see the molt migrants moving
during the last week of May and the first few weeks of June. They should
continue to be moving on southerly winds over the next two weeks or so.

Hi all,

Thanks to all for your help with the birdsong ID help re: “chew chew CHEE chew”. As some of you have suggested, I’ve finally concluded that it is a Baltimore Oriole who took special voice lessons and sings his/her own tune. We are fortunate to have a large annual Baltimore Oriole population who are very greedy grape jelly gluttons (VGGJG) and although I have yet to actually see one singing this tune, I believe that he/she hides in our surrounding trees and sings this tune.
Thanks again for your help.

Best birding.

I'm aware of 7 different mockingbird observations in Bayfield, Ashland, and Iron counties this spring alone. We get a few most years but this is a bit above average.

Subject: [wisb] MKE - Acadian/Great Crested Flycatchers - Whitnall Park- images
Good evening,
This morning at Whitnall Park, I found a pair of Acadian Flycatchers, and
three pairs of Great Crested Flycatchers. I saw a beautiful male Indigo
Bunting, singing about in a flower patch, in the forest. I heard four and
saw two Eastern Wood-Pewee. A male Blue-winged Warbler has been singing
there for about two weeks now, and is in the same spot as the previous two
years, most likely breeding. Lastly, I finally found my first hummingbird
nest!!! Well, it's just started being built, but I will be watching it for
the next month as everything progresses.

I saw a female hummingbird flying around, when I was watching the bunting.
I watched her through my binoculars, and she was going to dandelion seed
fuzz and gathering it. I thought to myself, she must be building a nest, so
I tried following her as she flew away, but lost her. Within a minute, she
was back, only about ten feet from me gathering again. This time I saw
exactly where she flew and watched her just starting to make a nest!

I have photos of the flycatchers and bunting, at the link below.

Have a great night,

Subject: [wisb] 2 Western Kingbirds - Ashland County
This morning Dick Verch found a Western Kingbird at the south end of Woodbury Lane on the southeast side of Ashland, literally the same exact spot as the Say's Phoebe a few years back. Nick Anich followed up this afternoon and found 2 Westerns to be present, and I saw both this evening as well. The birds were working the same small area of field but were never seen interacting with each other in any way. Nonetheless, we will be watching for the remote possibility of nesting in the days ahead.

Migration continues here on the Lake Superior shore with Wilson's and Blackpoll Warblers plentiful, and E. Wood-Pewee, Alder, and Olive-sided Flycatchers moving through, among others. Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Snow Goose were also noteworthy today.

Mockingbirds seem to be showing up in many places in Wisconsin this spring. Two were at Crex Meadows State Wildlife Area this afternoon. They were working the area from about 1/4 mile south of rest area C along North Refuge Road north to the rest area itself. One flew into the parking area where my car was and perched on the wooden posts which border the parking area.

Hi all,
I spent about an hour this morning birding along Porter and Laudon Rd.
before hitting Bakken's Pond (Lone Rock). I was mainly looking for birds
inside the woods along the road. Highlights were Yellow-billed cuckoo,
Common nighthawk, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Warbling vireo, Tree swallows, GC
flycatcher, 5 Cedar waxwings, and finally a huge flock of 60+ Canada geese
flying over Porter Rd. I didn't see any warblers, but I heard a few Common
yellowthroats and one Yellow. Good birding!

All
The (or a) H godwit was still at the Jersey Rd pond off CTH A in Dodge Co at 230 this afternoon. Also present were 3-4 W phalaropes, many dunlin, and multiple White-rumped/Bairds sandpipers (too far for me to separate between them). At the pond on Breezy Pt Rd were another W. phalarope, a bunch of dunlins and semi-palm pipers, and one white-rumped piper.

Subject: [wisb] N Mockingbird and flycatchers, etc Milwaukee
I just spent about 40 minutes at the far north end of Sheridan Park near
the bluff and huge clump of trees. I saw the Mockingbird three times. It is
flying around the lower end of the bluff but sometimes coming up higher but
not staying in one spot for more than a few seconds. There were also many
flycatchers including both Willow and Alder, which vocalized, and others
that I couldn't pin down because they did not vocalize. Several yellow
warblers, a Wilson's warbler and a chestnut sided warbler were also
present. Many Orioles chasing each other including one adult male orchard
oriole. Two Kingbirds as well.
Good birding,
Jennifer A
