Hi all,
I saw a flock of about 20 swans fly overhead this morning. What species are
they most likely to be at this time of year? (this was in Sauk County near
Lone Rock) Thanks!

Winter birds present in fair numbers: Horned Larks, Snow Buntings, Lapland
Longspurs, eating on and next to road near spilled corn. Primary area is
just west of Hwy P on O'Neil Road near yellow and black hash road signs.
Nothing but a few more horned Larks were further along road. Did not
observe any other sparrows along road. Much corn yet to be harvested so
fields are not open or had different crops than last year.

Subject: [wisb] Tundra Swans - Milwaukee County
Hello all,
Early this afternoon while putting outdoor items away for Winter before the next snowstorm arrives, we heard and then saw a flock of 37 Tundra Geese fly overhead heading toward the south-east. For our yard, this is the earliest we have had them fly over in late Fall, even though I have seen reports of other birders seeing them even earlier in South-east Wisconsin this year.
A salute to our Brave Women and Men who have served, or are serving in our Military.

They have spread out into separate flocks by species. I saw 2 White-winged
Scoters from the first bench south of the North Point snack bar parking lot
(also 1 Common Loon and 1 Horned Grebe), 5 Surf Scoters from lower Lake Park
(about halfway between the point and water treatment plant), and 4 Black
Scoters (including the adult male) off the point just north of Bradford
Beach (a Horned Grebe with a small fish in its mouth was also here). A scope
would be helpful.

This is the 4th record for the stateof Illinois; the first for the city of Chicago but there is a record for Wilmette and Evanston, IL (nearby) 37 years ago on Lake Michigan: 16 Nov 1982 & 20-21 Nov 1982; the other two records are from central Illinois (a specimen) and one from southern Illinois (photographed).

Subject: [wisb] Carolina Wren: Polk County (Osceola)
Attempt #2 (checking and seeing the original script of the post did not show, even though the subject line did) (based on 10:30 am this day, perhaps of interest to the Wisconsin birding community).\
Amazed to refind the Carolina Wren discovered/sighted a couple weeks ago on the northside bay of Big Lake (1850AA, Osceola,WI address of lake home), permission granted to look for it if any birders desire. Park along gravel driveway dead end at said address, one spot it seems to be living is up the driveway in the brush and thicket near the field stone retaining wall. Neighbors living there at the end of the driveway are aware and have given permission, don your binoculars/camera. It makes the Audubon Field Guide recording "rattle dits" and responded to it, but then quit after a short time. I am guessing it circuits about the landscaping of the properties too. Reply to me if more info desired. Will upload blurry phone photo to ebird, site listed as "Big Lake area " Milt Blomberg

Subject: [wisb] Madison lakes condition
Yes, the big lakes in Madison should be open for several more weeks, barring the continuation of these January temps.   I saw at least two Common Loons on the lake side of the John Nolan causeway on the way to work this morning.  One was in winter plumage, one still largely in breeding plumage.  Doubtless there were more.  
Mendota rarely freezes before the Madison CBC, which this year will be on the first day of the count period, Dec. 14 (as I'm sure will be most of the other "big" counts.)  

I had already replied to Jennifer's inquiry about Goose Pond in Columbia County.  I had an email from Nolan Pope earlier today, who said it was, indeed, frozen.  He said Mark Martin had counted 600 Tundra Swans on the ice this morning.

Subject: [wisb] Early arrival of winter at Horicon NWR and vicinity
As one might expect with temperatures overnight in the teens, Horicon NWR is
mostly frozen over, and the nice variety and numbers of waterfowl present
last week are no longer in the area. Not a single Tundra Swan was seen by me
today.
Nevertheless, there was interesting birding. The autotour had a few normal
winter passerines, and I was surprised to see a Bufflehead and 3 Ruddy Ducks
surviving in a tiny patch of water in the last pond of the autotour. While
scoping them, I heard the bugling of Trumpeter Swans, and 15 landed on the
ice and preened and rested.
Along STH49 at the pond across from the historical marker, some Canada Geese
and Mallards were huddled up against the island, while 3 immature Bald
Eagles worked the area. There has been at least one Rough-legged Hawk
working the area since last week, and it sometimes perches in the tall dead
tree on the eastern side of the marsh along STH49.
North of the marsh, along Oak Center Road about .4 miles east of
Johnson/Townline Rd., I saw a distant Northern Shrike.
Ledge and Point Roads on the eastern side of the marsh had Snow Buntings, an
American Pipit, and the usual Dark-eyed Juncos, Tree Sparrows, and Horned
Larks.
I drove east on Ledge Road to Centerline Road, and from here down to CTH H
in the cornfield on the east side of Centerline Road were over 400 Sandhill
Cranes. Some were obviously young of the year. A few more Snow Buntings were
in the area too.
Finally, I headed toward Main Dike Road which was very dead, but near the
intersection of Rockvale Road and Dike Road, I saw two Lapland Longspurs
with the Horned Larks on the side of the road to top off this wintry trip.

Went to check out the gulls around the Johnson Creek landfill. Found 3 adult or near adult Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 1 nice adult Thayer’s type Iceland, had another but the primaries were a bit odd, so I felt I couldn’t properly write it up, and I had what I believe was a 1st year Herring x Glaucous mix.
It will be wonderful when the Ring-billed Gulls leave. I can only look though so many , in hopes of a Mew.
I also stomped some Canada Thistle ,by the pond to help with future viewing.

Date: 11/8/19 11:07 am
From: Bill Volkert <billvolkert11...>
Subject: [wisb] Bird Picture Life List
My wife Connie and I have for many years planned our vacations around
birding in different places. In addition to searching for birds we always
enjoy taking pictures of any birds or other animals that will sit still
long enough. Of course, we also take pictures of mammals, reptiles as well
as some butterflies, flowers and landscapes but birds has been our main
objective. Over the years I have accumulated several hundred thousand
pictures and have recently found a need to catalog these since I just don't
remember everything we have taken pictures of.
Going through only my digital picture collection I have now totaled 1300
species of birds that I have photographed over the years. Of course, they
are not all worthy of National Geographic but there are a few good ones
among the collection. While I certainly like a well composed picture or
capturing some interesting behavior, my primary goal has been to document
what I have seen. Now I have decided to sort through my digital picture
collection so I know what I have. There also are a number of other birds
that I have photographed as slides in the past and I have some 80,000
slides but don't plan to go through all of those any time soon.

From this I have come to realize that on some of our birding trips we have
seen so many species of birds that after a while it is hard to remember
them all. In particular, a morning spent at a hummingbird feeding station
often times results in sighting 8 to 12 species, not to mention the great
variety of flycatchers to be found in tropical America. Over the years I
have seen just over 160 species of hummingbirds and it is hard to remember
the names and field marks of them all. I am usually fairly good with bird
names but over time I am surprised how many I need to look up again.

When we took our around-the-world trip I began to realize after the first
10 weeks or so that we had already seen a lot of birds and many mammals in
Southern Africa and Madagascar. With some six months to go I knew that I
would never remember them all so I began to write a picture reference list
as I was downloading our pictures periodically. This consisted of simply
writing down the picture file number and bird or mammal I took pictures
of. In other words, in one column I would write something like picture #
1501 - 1520 and next to that the species in the pictures. It took a lot of
time every few days to do this but in the end we took 35,000 pictures of
hundreds of birds and and mammals. Now I wish I had been doing that for
all of our trips over the years.

At least this is now a good use of my time considering the early winter
weather. So as one of my winter projects I have been going through my
wildlife pictures from all of our travels and cataloging them in the same
way for each trip. I find that for many birds I am having to check the
date the picture was taken, check that against my trip checklist to see
what similar birds we had sighted on that particular day, and sometimes
confirming them in a field guide. It also turns out that there are a
number of birds that I have such vivid memories of that I could swear that
I have photos but as it turns out they were nothing more than very
memorable experiences.

At this time I am nearly done with this project and have only 6 trips and
something like 15,000 pictures to go through. I did scan them briefly to
see what bird species I may yet add to my bird picture life list and it
appears that I will end up with just over 1300 species, or nearly 1/3 of
all of the birds I have seen. For me, collecting pictures of birds is
simply a hobby and I don't use them in any other way than for our own
enjoyment to remember our travel experiences and also use some of these in
my presentations.

I also find it interesting that while I make an effort to capture pictures
of the rare and colorful birds we encounter, I often times haven't taken
time to get a picture of the most common species. I guess it is similar to
home where I have pictures of warblers, flycatcher, vireos, waterfowl and
birds of prey but don't have many of robins, crows and a few other common
species. I tend to think that I can get them at any time so I put this off
and then come winter find that I don't have many pictures of a robin or
grackle.

In our travels I have come to see that birding and bird photography today
is a worldwide endeavor. I used to think of this as something that only
Americans and a few Europeans enjoyed but I have seen that there are people
from all corners of the world that seek birds in nearly all of the wild
places and like many of us pursue a life list or a great picture. My hope
is that all of them will support wildlife conservation efforts in order to
protect what we all enjoy and value.

Subject: [wisb] Free presentation, Bird-Window Collisions, 11/19, Madison
Free, open to all, Evenings with Audubon presentation, Madison
Hope you can join!

Through the Looking Glass: Birds and Window Collisions
with Bryan Lenz, American Bird Conservancy
Tuesday, November 19, 7:00 pm
Capitol Lakes, 333 W. Main St., Madison

Collisions with glass kill up to 1 billion birds each year in the United
States. Join us as Bryan Lenz from American Bird Conservancy, one of the
nation's leading experts on bird-window collisions and their solutions,
discusses why birds hit glass, what you can do about it, and what he helped
the Milwaukee Bucks do to make Fiserv Forum the first LEED-certified
bird-friendly sports arena. We will also discuss the Bird Collision Corps,
a local citizen science effort that studies the magnitude of this problem
in Madison.

*Note about parking: There is a ramp directly across the street from
Capitol Lakes (333 W. Main St.) that you can park in. Bring your ticket
into Capitol Lakes and they will validate it for you after the talk.


About the Speaker: Bryan Lenz, American Bird Conservancy

As Collisions Campaign Manager, Bryan’s goal is to reduce the collision
threat that the built environment, especially glass, poses to birds. To be
successful, Bryan has to work on numerous fronts, including research,
design, legislation, building code, education, outreach, and marketing. The
target audience includes just about everyone - elected officials, private
citizens, public employees, architects, corporations, universities, and
anyone else who has the power to influence the design of new buildings or
the operation of existing buildings (including homes).Bryan joined ABC
after working as the Director of community conservation program Bird City
Wisconsin and as the Chief Scientist at the Western Great Lakes Bird & Bat
Observatory.

Subject: [wisb] Yard Birds
On Monday I added a new species to my yard list, bringing it to 207 birds
sighted around our home I was just outside of the house and as the sun was
setting I heard a tufted titmouse. They nested on our land for two years
and then mostly disappeared for a while. My binoculars were not handy but
I walked over to get a look. At that moment I heard a raspy series of
calls in another direction that reminded me of a Carolina Wren.
I then walked to another clump of trees and got a decent look at the
silhouette of a good-sized wren that perched there around dusk. My wife
had her binoculars in reach and got a brief look. She said that she
noticed a prominent eye-stripe which was all she could see in low light.
The bird moved and called a few more times before disappearing to roost for
the night.

The next evening I again was outdoors and while I was blowing out a water
line I again heard the rapid call of a Carolina wren. Unfortunately, I
again did not have binoculars handy and as I got up to take a look my
compressor kicked in chasing the bird away. While this is not the best
sighting of the species I am confident of what I saw and heard.

This is my first record of this species for the backyard and only the
second record I am aware of for the Northern Kettle Moraine. Earlier this
year I was going through my yard list to see what other potential species I
might add. Carolina wren was my top choice of the most likely species to
show up. There are a few more that may turn up at some time in the future
and you never know what oddities may show up at any time which is what
makes birding so interesting. It is getting harder to add new species to
our yard list but there always is a chance of something unusual that may
turn up in the future.

Daryl, there have been no documented sightings of Common Redpoll in the state this fall. Also no confirmed reports of Evening Grosbeak, Bohemian Waxwing, or White-winged Crossbill. Only one Pine Grosbeak report and a handful of Red Crossbill reports, while Pine Siskins continue sporadically as they have all through summer and fall. If any winter finches grace us in numbers this winter, it will be both unexpected and not anytime soon as at least some signs are typically evident by now here in the north.

I had two surprising yard birds today, especially one. Around noon I happened to see a bird land near one of my thistle feeders. Before it could get to them it was chased vigorously by finches and juncos---Common Redpoll. It has not
returned as the birds are very active today. Hard to explain this one considering last winter's "performance" of winter finches and the forecast for this winter.

Then less than an hour later I saw a bird land near my feeders. It was an immature female Rose-br. Grosbeak. It has returned a few times although I do not have in sunflower seeds out as the squirrels have been the worst I have ever seen here during the past
month. Cannot keep any sunflower seeds even in the "squirrel proof" feeder. Darn.

Subject: [wisb] Yard birds
I had two surprising yard birds today, especially one. Around noon I happened to see a bird land near one of my thistle feeders. Before it could get to them it was chased vigorously by finches and juncos---Common Redpoll. It has not returned as the birds are very active today. Hard to explain this one considering last winter's "performance" of winter finches and the forecast for this winter.
Then less than an hour later I saw a bird land near my feeders. It was an immature female Rose-br. Grosbeak. It has returned a few times although I do not have in sunflower seeds out as the squirrels have been the worst I have ever seen here during the past month. Cannot keep any sunflower seeds even in the "squirrel proof" feeder. Darn.

Last evening I encountered a duck (probably mallard - too dark for accurate
id) caught on fishing line/hook at McCarty park (82nd & Beloit). Couldn't
contact anyone at wildlife rehab at humane society, left message, but I
doubt they will have the means to rescue this bird. Assuming it is still
there this morning, I would need to find someone with hip boots and maybe a
long handled fishing net to 'catch' this bird and free it. Anyone able to
help??
Will call DNR in the a.m. also.

Subject: [wisb] Madison Audubon Trip to Lake Michigan
Met at Park and Ride and there were only 4 of us (Pat, Charles, Kathy and I). We meet another couple in Milwaukee. Started at Texas Ave. ,not much. Close Horned Grebe was only thing interesting. McKinley Beach had nothing. North Point was great. Not that many scoters, but all three in great light and distance. Best was an adult Black. There was an immature male and a female W-w Scoter, some immature / female Surf’s. and 3 female type Black.
Best bird ,at Atwater, was Snow Bunting, first heard and spotted by Charles.
At Virmond, Louise and Michael spotted a Red-throated Loon in good scope range.
Virmond Park, Harrington Beach and Kohler-Andre SP were all similar. Lots of Red-breasted Mergansers moving both south and north. Occasional Long-tailed Ducks flying at a distant. Very distant loons flying. Did see a couple groups of scaup and 3 Common Mergansers .
Missed finding a Great Tit.
North Point, in Sheboygan, only had R-b Mergansers.
On the way back we did Hy 49, through Horicon. Great last stop. Lots of Tundra and Trumpeter Swans, good mix of ducks and our first Harrier and Bald Eagle of the day.

Subject: [wisb] Golden Eagle - Pewaukee
During a brief hike at Ryan Park in Pewaukee this afternoon a Golden Eagle
circled over me for a minute or so and headed west towards Delafied. It had
some remnants of the white patches in the wings and tail, but they were
faint so I think it was almost into it's adult stage.
We don't see Goldens often in SE Wisconsin, so it was quite a treat to have
one fly straight overhead at a close range. Ryan Park is a high hill from
which you can see the Kettle Moraine ridge, which is a good migration
route, especially for raptors away from Lake Michigan.

Pewaukee Lake has its usual fall raft of several hundred coots loafing near
the village on the east end. Accompanying them were Bufflehead, Redhead,
Ruddy Ducks, Lesser Scaup, Ring-necked Duck, Hooded Mergansers,
Double-crested Cormorants, and a lone Mute Swan.

Good Birding!

Very quiet out there this afternoon with few birds on the Madison lakes that I could see from shore at Yahara Place and Tenney Park, save a couple dozen MALLARDS, a COMMON LOON, two BUFFLEHEADS, two PIED-BILLED GREBES and some gulls; there appeared to be several hundred AMERICAN COOTS near Olbrich Park.  
Walking along the Yahara River Parkway on my way home I stumbled onto a very late NASHVILLE WARBLER, foraging in the shrubs along the river near Johnson Street.  Got some good looks at it before it got spooked by a another pedestrian and flew off.

Hi all,
While birding Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee the highlight of the walk
were two Horned Larks feeding on seeds in the grass in the snow. On one
occasion I saw one eat an insect, so they are not strictly seed eaters.
They pulled seeds off of plants and ate nicely while I watched from a
distance until a jogger not knowingly flush them off a ways. It was partly
cloudy, low winds and temps around 30 degrees, a pleasant day.

A few images of the Horned Larks from the day at the link below if you care
to view them:

Good evening,
This fall was one of my best warbler migrations. Most days seemed to be
above average for birds. I ended with 26 species, including 21 on one day!
I have finally finished editing and getting my photos together. If you
would like to see them, they are at the link below. Have a great night.

Subject: [wisb] late Nashville Warbler, other fall birds
I had a good look at a NASHVILLE WARBLER this afternoon on the path leading south from the parking area at Governor's Island in Madison.  Out on Lake Mendota there were at least seven COMMON LOONS--one calling as the sun set. 
Earlier in the afternoon I found a NORTHERN SHRIKE at Cherokee Marsh North Unit.  It was on prairie/marsh to the east of the parking area, foraging off a lone shrub.  One FOX SPARROW and one HERMIT THRUSH as well.  Surprisingly few sparrows.
Plenty of GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS all over, with many fewer RUBY-CROWNED.  A few EASTERN BLUEBIRDS to be seen here and there as well as BROWN CREEPERS and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS.
Good birding!

About 12 years ago, I had several bluebirds in my semi-rural yard in Onalaska during some bitterly cold and snowy weather. I remember putting out crumbled up suet in a hanging dish feeder several times a day and the bluebirds readily came to eat it. My residence backed up to a wooded hillside which probably provided some natural foods for them.

They are in the area all winter if you know where to look for them, just
not in the concentrations of the summer months. They tend to feed on
berries in the winter and I find them on sumac and similar species. I’ve
tried to offer them meal worms in the colder months but they always are
uninterested, at least here.

My Juncos started arriving last weekend and by Wednesday I was up to at
least 20. Although I can’t prove it without banding, I’m sure I see some
familiar faces out there. I’ve read that Juncos will arrive at a location
and use basically 20 acres for the entire winter, so it’s not out of the
question that these are repeats from prior years. We had one that had an
unusual white mark on its face and we had him three years in a row, and if
he shows up again, it will be 4.

Visiting ace birders Jim & Sharon Lind found a Summer Tanager along the Lake Superior in Washburn, Bayfield County, yesterday. Thanksto Jim for quickly contacting me so we could both watch it feast on berries and bugsin the warm, mid-day sunshine, once landing on a chimney and another time on some scaffolding around a nearby house. While this southern species is rare but regular here in spring, this is only our second area fall record, to my knowledge.

Subject: [wisb] Carolina Wrens - Milwaukee
Hello,
While birding late yesterday afternoon at the Milwaukee County Zoo, a group of us found a pair of chatty singing Carolina Wrens--still present today.

I stopped by there this morning and heard the Carolina Wren singing, but it had no interest in being photographed. Did see the Yellow-rumped Warblers drinking sap from a big grape vine and got a few photos. Very interesting behavior.

Sandy and Kathi, I believe that they can get a permit through APHIS under USDA. Wisconsin DNR appears to only to share protection to wooden structures. So one needs a federal permit.

Now if you really wish to get discouraged you can google; USDA APHIS Wildlife Services. On front page they have a list on left side (Program Overview) of options. Select "Reports and Publications", then on that page select "Program Data Reports". On that page select a year at the top such as 2018. After clicking that the page will show some pie charts. Go the bottom one ; "Animals Dispersed/killed/ or Euthanized/Freed". Click on that and you will get a total listing for USA. On the top of that chart you can select "Wisconsin" and "Killed/Euthanized" and see what was done in Wisconsin last year! I realize this may seem a bit long, but they do have to report annually although they make it a bit hard to get to get to the numbers. 😊 Some examples,,,, "Cormorants killed 850, Sandhill Cranes 22, Herring Gulls 935, Starlings 15,000+, etc... You have to scan down the list because they report on how captured or killed, such as firearms, pyrotechnics, etc... and same species may b

Sandy and Kathi, I believe that they can get a permit through APHIS under USDA. Wisconsin DNR appears to only to share protection to wooden structures. So one needs a federal permit.
Now if you really wish to get discouraged you can google; USDA APHIS Wildlife Services. On front page they have a list on left side (Program Overview) of options. Select "Reports and Publications", then on that page select "Program Data Reports". On that page select a year at the top such as 2018. After clicking that the page will show some pie charts. Go the bottom one ; "Animals Dispersed/killed/ or Euthanized/Freed". Click on that and you will get a total listing for USA. On the top of that chart you can select "Wisconsin" and "Killed/Euthanized" and see what was done in Wisconsin last year! I realize this may seem a bit long, but they do have to report annually although they make it a bit hard to get to get to the numbers. 😊 Some examples,,,, "Cormorants killed 850, Sandhill Cranes 22, Herring Gulls 935, Starlings 15,000+, etc... You have to scan down the list because they report on how captured or killed, such as firearms, pyrotechnics, etc... and same species may b
e listed under different types of control. Gives one a different perspective of what is out in the state and how WE deal with it.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Killing woodpeckers permit (?!)

Can we all do something to protest this policy? If all of the people from all of the birding organizations throughout Wisconsin and beyond, sent protest emails, perhaps we could change this policy.
We would need to know the person to send the email to. Then we could each email the person in charge directly with our protest. A valid concern that can be raised pertains to the new Audubon survey about the dramatic decline in our bird population. Does anyone know the contact email and name of the person who oversees this horrible policy?

Subject: [wisb] MKE - Warnimont Park - Carolina Wren - images
Good evening,
Today Lorri and I checked Warnimont Park for fall migrants. We went to the
area behind the archery range, just north of the parking lot. We walked in
a little and there were a bunch of birds moving about. After watching the
them, come to find out, a handful of Yellow-rumped Warblers and several
Ruby-crowned Kinglets, were drinking sap from a couple of large vines. The
vines were dark black and dripping with some sort of sap, apparently
appealing to those birds. While watching those birds feed on the vines, a
Carolina Wren started singing. We were able to get pretty good views it.
The wren has been around for at least two months now. We also had 2
Orange-crowned Warblers, one of those being the gray-headed sub species and
a late, beautiful male Nashville Warbler. I also thought I heard a Northern
Waterthrush, but I couldn't find it and it stopped scolding me. There were
also a few Hermit Thrushes foraging around. I have images of the Carolina
Wren at the link below. Have a great night!

We have a cedar sided house in a wooded area. It’s s common challenge this time of year. We’ve had large holes drilled right into our attic, but choose to keep as much habitat as possible, and to discourage where we can. My measures are simply to tack up shiny mylar streamers, to put up winter roost boxes, and leave many standing snags. When needed, I simply repair the holes. I *want* the woodpeckers to live here. It’s disappointing that such practices are legal.

I am sometimes scoffed at for saying things like “they were here first, so have just as much right to live here”. We have to stand up for wildlife.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Permit to kill woodpeckers
I came across a new construction home in my area which had removed numerous trees in order to build. On the side of the house, which was all cedar shingles, were multiple rat traps, 12’ feet high, baited with suet, clearly intended to kill woodpeckers. I contacted the DNR warden in my area, who responded immediately and worked with the home owners to come up with alternative approaches. It is sad to see this used as an option, especially when a home owner has chosen to build in an area that is rich in wildlife, including woodpeckers, and uses materials, such as cedar shingles, that attract these birds.

A beautiful and active afternoon at Cherokee Marsh in Madison, yielding 36 species.  
Highlights included:  
GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET (5), RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET (10), HERMIT THRUSH (2)--both with buff tips on greater coverts making them hatching-year birds, FIELD SPARROW (3), DARK-EYED JUNCO (1), WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW (3)--two juveniles and one adult, WHITE-THROATED SPARROW (10), LINCOLN SPARROW (3), TENNESSEE WARBLER (1), ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER (5), NASHVILLE WARBLER (3), YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER (4) and a late BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER.
A bit later I stopped at Token Creek County Park, which was much quieter, but I found a FOX SPARROW, and two more HERMIT THRUSHES one of which had buff tips on the coverts.
Good birding!

I thought that such permits were rarely given to homeowners and that the threshold of damage would be higher than a few cedar boards. He claims nothing else worked to deter the woodpeckers.
Have other folks heard of people getting permits to take birds in suburban environments like mine?
I worry that people will now think they can easily get a permit to kill woodpeckers for doing what woodpeckers do. The original post had asked neighbors for ideas about how to deal with a house-pecking woodpecker, and there were over 40 responses, with many ideas. His was the only that involved killing the birds.

Subject: [wisb] Harrington and 151/A pond
I spent part of the day checking out Harrington Beach SP, Horicon Marsh (very quiet) and a few ponds north of Beaver Dam. Harrington was much quieter than when I was there Monday. Besides the Pacific Loon that morning there also were 20+ Horned Grebes, a Red-throated Loon, Surf Scoter, a few Long-tailed Ducks, Greater Scaup and Buffleheads, plus a few passerines in the park. Today I was surprised to see the strong southeast winds pushing the waves to the shore. The end of Cty D was covered with rocks and stones that had been pounded off the shoreline. The waves were currently "attacking" the stop sign at the end of D. There was limited activity on the lake with a few scoters (all 3 species) plus some Red-br. Mergansers, Greater Scaup and cormorants, but while I was there little else. I talked with the lake counter as I had found an empid. flycatcher along the road near quarry lake. Had great looks at it, including sitting on the road and chasing insects. It was moving toward
the counter/s spot. Still working on trying to id it.
Horicon marsh was very quiet. The ponds were quiet (I, Oakwood, and Jersey). The latter had 2 duck hunters just finishing up, hence no birds present. However at the 151/A pond I was surprised to find the Avocet still present that Greg had found on Thursday. It was actively feeding along the southwest corner of the pond. Also present were 6 Killdeer.

Subject: [wisb] Re: return of Juncos, Fox Sparrows
I saw my first (single) Junco on Sept 22nd! My second was seen, a different individual, on Oct 7th. Then they trickled into a flood that began on the 15th.
We had no more than 2 Fox Sparrows (possibly only 1, as I never saw 2 at one time), arriving on Oct 5th and not seen after the 8th. We generally only get 1 or 2, and see them for 3-6 days when they are around.

Last year, The Fox Sparrow 'window' was Oct 13th-18th, and my first Dark-eyed Junco was seen Oct 23rd.

Subject: [wisb] Re: return of Juncos
My Juncos started arriving last weekend and by Wednesday I was up to at
least 20. Although I can’t prove it without banding, I’m sure I see some
familiar faces out there. I’ve read that Juncos will arrive at a location
and use basically 20 acres for the entire winter, so it’s not out of the
question that these are repeats from prior years. We had one that had an
unusual white mark on its face and we had him three years in a row, and if
he shows up again, it will be 4.

  Good morning all,
Can someone please tell me where is the best place to view birds that are reported at the Milwaukee Coast Guard Impoundment. When i tried to enter i was told there is no public access & i can not enter. When i look from the ferry side i just see a little hill & prairie. I can not see the ground or birds. The same is true from the opposite side by the lake, although i can view a little more of the area. I am wondering if the bulk of these checklists are for birds spotted on the Milwaukee Lake Express Ferry Terminal property and for some reason they are being reported on the impoundment hotspot instead of the ferry hotspot?  Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

thank you!!

Birds and Black-footed Ferrets in South Dakota
Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center N7725 Hwy 28 Horicon WI Thursday,
October 17, 2019, 7:00pm–9:00pm. Please use the south/lower entrance.
Please join Horicon Marsh Bird Club president, Jeff Bahls, as he tells us
about his trips to Buffalo Gap National grasslands in South Dakota to
survey for Black-footed Ferrets and the birds that he encountered during
those surveys.
The black‐footed ferret was listed as endangered by the United States Fish
and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in 1967. Declared extinct in 1979, a residual
wild population was discovered in Meeteetse, Wyoming, in 1981. This cohort
eventually grew to 130 individuals and was then nearly extirpated by
sylvatic plague and canine distemper virus with eventually 18 animals
remaining. These survivors were captured from 1985 to 1987 to serve as the
foundation for the black‐footed ferret breeding program
