Subject: [wisb] #2...Gray-cheeked Thrush & Prothonotary Warbler (photos): Wyalusing State Park, WI (Canoe Trail parking lot at water's edge)
Today within Wyalusing St. Park (at the Upper Mississippi River NWR--Wyalusing SP Canoe Trail area adjacent to the water …..at the lowest portion of Long Point Road):
- 2 PROTHONTARY WARBLER

I heard two singing — one of which I photographed …..photos at the following eBird checklist #:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56639898 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56639898>

Interesting to capture nesting material in the bill of the one I photographed as it repeatedly left and entered a nesting cavity
(Feel free to see photos at the above link.)

- 1 GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH

Individual was foraging in moist mud and tree understory adjacent to the river on the north side of the parking lot.

(Again, photos at the above link……and they are ALL average photos because I did NOT have time to edit them via Lightroom software (sorry).

Regards and enjoy the spring, everyone….

Daniel

Subject: [wisb] #1: Cerulean Warbler @ Wyalusing St. Park (Photos)
Good evening friends:
Today, on Long Valley Road within Wyalusing St. Park, I heard three
CERULEAN WARBLER individuals — one of which I photographed with some average to mediocre photos that provide so-called diagnostic features.

Classic song types expressed by all three individuals, but I only saw one of them whose photos are at:

Subject: [wisb] Re: FW: RFI---Taiwan
Last year I was in Taipei at the same time for a math conference. It felt a
little like low season, mostly because it is quite hot during the day. I
took the bus to Wulai which is about an hour south of the city. Lonely
Planet mentions this as a hotspot. It's also pretty in its own right. In
the city I went to Daan Park (Taiwan Barbet, Psilopogon nuchalis,
endemic!), the Botanical Garden (Malaysian Night Herons, Gorsachius
melanolophus) and also to Guting River Park (Oriental Magpie, now Pica
sericea). Unfortunately you'll see a lot of birds that are introduced to
the island, like Common Myna. One thing I found funny were lots of birders
in Daan Park sitting behind their large cameras and intensely watching a
hole in a tree. They were waiting for the Barbet to stick its head out.
Have fun!

Subject: [wisb] Re: Questions
Mark, I read your post with interest because there is an abandoned house near me. The door is standing wide open & I have been seeing brown swallows flying in & out. I have been trying to get a good look at them but they fly very fast. I decided that they are rough-winged. Do you think they might try to nest in a building like that? There were 2 of them, but, just this pm I noticed 4 flitting around. Your thoughts?

Subject: [wisb] Sea Duck Joint Venture - Key Sites Atlas
The WGLBBO recently submitted a "site account" for a project of the *Sea
Duck Joint Venture*, an international consortium of partners working to
study these species and set effective conservation action in motion for
the sea ducks. This is a continent-wide effort (The "Sea Duck Key Sites
Atlas") to display the important breeding and non-breeding sites for these
birds across North America. Our data come from 5 years of surveys via
aircraft above the waters of western Lake Michigan.
What are the sea ducks, you may ask? They include the eiders (any of which
are rare in WI), scoters (3 species), goldeneyes (1 common, and 1
regionally rare species), mergansers (3 species), Harlequin Duck,
Long-tailed Duck, and Bufflehead.

Hi all, the homeowner with the Painted Bunting in Douglas County has requested NO VISITORS ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY, OR SUNDAY. Let's be sure to honor that request and reward her hospitality by leaving her alone during this time. She continues to welcomevisitors today and Thursday if the bird remains. She had not seen it today but was gone most of the morning. If she texts that it has returned I'll post here. Assume no news is bad news.

Subject: [wisb] Short-billed Dowitcher/Atlantic subspecies in Milwaukee County
Yesterday I found a lone Dowitcher feeding in a flooded agricultural
field along South Pennsylvania Avenue in Oak Creek. The plumage seemed
odd, as it was not the expected rich rufous or orange underparts of an
adult.  Instead it was buffy from the face down to the upper breast, and
white from the mid-breast down through the belly.  After discussion with
Mike Wanger and further consulting my bird books when I got home, I
confirmed it was an adult Short-billed Dowitcher of the griseus
subspecies, which normally is found along the Atlantic coast during
migration. Jeremy Meyer and Lorri Howski saw the bird later in the day
and took good documentary shots.  My eBird report, with one of Jeremy's
photos, is here: https://ebird.org/wi/view/checklist/S56596749

Subject: [wisb] Re: Questions
HI
It is my understanding that rough-winged do not nest in nest boxes.
Cornell Lab of Ornithology states that
Northern Rough-winged Swallows nest in burrows created by other
animals—such as kingfishers, squirrels, and Bank Swallows—in clay, sand, or
gravel banks, typically near water. They also nest in crevices found in
gutters, boxes, drainpipes, walls, and bridges. They nest singly or in
small groups often at the edge of a Bank Swallow colony.
We have found them nesting in trailers from semis that are permanently
parked and have holes for the swallows to enter under the trailer. Years
ago, Paul and Glenna Schwalbe from Pardeeville observed a rough-winged
trying to nest in a neighbors dry vent. They placed a PVC pipe about three
foot long with about a three inch opening on one end on the side of their
house about five feet off the ground. They also placed a mirror so they
could stand in their house and look at the mirror and monitor the PVC.

We placed the same type of PVC at our cabin under a bridge over the water
and below an elevated deer stand near water, No use the first two years.
However ,about 10 days ago we were pleased to have a pair of rough-wings
was carrying nesting material (grass) into the PVC under the deer stand.

Subject: [wisb] Bird walk & program at Newport St. Park (Door County)
Peter, if this doesn't go through, could you please forward for me?  
We are Sarah & Bill Krouse, and we are amateur Ornithologists (birders). We have been inspired to share nature by legendary environmentalists like Door County’s own Roy & Charlotte Lukes, and we will be your guides for a fun & interesting program about birds. Birders of all experience are welcome, from beginner to advanced.
Please come and join Naturalist Beth Bartoli and the Krouses!!

The program will include a leisurely walk in Newport SP on relatively easy trails to look for spring migrants. We will assist with identifying birds, many of whom nest at the park. Spring is when the birds put on their best show, with brilliant colors and cheerful songs. Many of the birds are making a pilgrimage of thousands of miles from where they overwinter in the tropics, to their nesting grounds in the north. We will explore forests, forest edges, and meadows for our target birds, like warblers, buntings, orioles, grosbeaks and others. The unique habitat in Door County makes it a funnel for many interesting visitors, and you never know what we might find!

 

Bird program starts at 7am in the welcome center at the entry to the park, on Saturday, May 25th. Dress for the weather, and bring binoculars and a field guide if you have one. If you do not, we can loan them to you. Questions, please call (920) 854-2500.

Subject: [wisb] Pink-sided Junco and Audubon's Yellow-rump - Bayfield/Iron Co.
Two excellent out-of-range subspecies sightings deserve mention here. First is the Pink-sided Junco photographed by Benjamin-Shabi Baldwin at his feeders in northern Bayfield County on Monday. This is a first confirmed for all of Wisconsin in eBird as the subspecies is typically found in the U.S. Rockies from New Mexico to Idaho. (Beware there are many juncos with pink sides but most are not the Pink-sided subspecies.) Ben's photos are at:https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56538033

Second is the "Audubon's" Yellow-rumped Warbler photographed by Connor Philipsky near the Ashland-Iron County line during one of our bird festival field trips on Saturday. This is only our second confirmed record for the area, and only the 3rd documented with photos in Wisconsin eBird, although it does occur in the state a bit more regularly. It too is a subspecies of western North America and may soon be recognized as its own species. Connor's photo can be seen at:https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/160215891

This spring has been dismal up north for weather and numbers of birds but the vagrants have been spectacular!

Hi all,
After hearing about the male Painting Bunting that was visiting a feeder
for a few days in Douglas County Wisconsin I just new, working on my state
life list, this one I would have to try for. I made the almost 6 hour ride
up there leaving about 7:00 am on a chance. I arrived at 1.00 pm at the
residents and Amy was out to greet me as she was working on flower beds.
After 1.25 hours the bird showed up  and landed a few feet from the feeder
on the ground. The Painted Bunting worked its way to under the feeder where
bird seeds have fallen. After about 2 minutes the Painted Bunting flushed
to a deciduous tree and then off into the woods. I was puzzled on why it
flushed as I never moved while it was there. Looking at my images when I
got home I notice a Song Sparrow came in near the Painted Bunting. The Song
Sparrow caught the attention of something that possibly landed in the tree
above as its head was looking up, the bunting looked up too and decided not
to hang around and flew off. It was a beautiful day in Douglas County, with
almost full sun and almost 70 degrees. Amy was a wonderful host and a big
thank you to her for sharing the amazing Painted Bunting with the birding
community.

All

Last year I was invited to give a paper at a conference in Taiwan but couldn't make the logistics work. I was invited again this year and although the timing is difficult, I can make it work. I will be in Taiwan for 5 or so days before my conference starts on July 3 and plan to bird during that period.

Because my stay is short I won't be able to join a scheduled bird tour. Does anyone know a local guide that I could hire for a few days? Absent that I will rent a car and bird on my own. Does anyone have any places (e.g., parks, wetlands, etc) that they strongly recommend? Conversely, are there any places that you might have visited that turned out to be duds.

Also any advice on bird books for Taiwan would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help

Subject: [wisb] Painted Bunting--YES
Well the old nemesis is no more. After talking with Amy last evening I decided to make the long drive for the Painted Bunting. I called her on the way up at 8:00 and it had not shown. I decided to continue the last two hours to their place. She indicated it had been there an hour before. I waited for about 45 minutes during which Nick A and Mike (from IL) arrived. Mike spotted the bird in the brush bordering the yard. It spent a long time preening before moving to one of the feeders to feed on the ground for quite some time. Total length of sighting was almost a half hour. High fives were popular.
And two other pluses was my first Broad-winged Hawk of the year along 29 and shortly after coming to close to a dumb deer that had to cross in front of me (a few feet literally).

I think I will be "hitting the sack" soon. 12+ hours on the road is a bit much but it was fun!

Subject: [wisb] Results of this year's Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Festival
The 13th annual Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Festival was held in Ashland this past weekend, convening nearly 400 participants from around the state and country to enjoy 120 trips and programs on birds, butterflies, wildflowers, and other joys of nature. While our preliminary tally stands at 175 bird species seen, this year's event will be remembered for its rarities.

The HOODED ORIOLE found south of Ashland will become the 3rd state record of this southern species that typically ranges no farther north than south Texas, although unfortunately it did not linger for most to see it. An "AUDUBON'S" YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER photographed at Wren Falls was one of few well documented in the state and only our second local record of this western subspecies. A local birder photographed an ORCHARD ORIOLE, furnishing only our 3rd area record and first for the festival period. A SUMMER TANAGER was photographed at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center, a first for our event venue. Field trip groups spotted N. MOCKINGBIRD, BOREAL CHICKADEE, and BLUE-WINGED WARBLER, the latter for only the second time at the festival. Willets, Rough-legged Hawk, and Yellow-headed Blackbird were among some of the other goodies found.

A big thanks to all who participated, and especially to our 80 trip & program leaders who contribute their time in making this event so fun and educational. We hope some of you can join us next year!https://www.birdandnaturefest.com/

A Painted Bunting was seen in Douglas County a few days ago but visitors were not welcome. Now another (or possibly the same) has been found through this evening and the homeowner welcomes visitors. The location is generally near Amnicon Falls. If you wish to try for it please message me for location and a phone number as the homeowner would like a call before visiting and I'd rather not make that info public here.

P.S. Yes, Robbye is well aware of all this. 🙂

l version.
I observed the Marbled Godwits for about 10 minutes when they suddenly took flight without warning at approximately 7:40pm.  They flew to the north and banked a bit and I thought they might circle back around, but after a few minutes I figured they were gone for good.  Several of the dunlin took flight with them.  There wasn't anything obvious that disturbed them, probably just time to move on.

Subject: [wisb] 9 Springs - White pelicans, egrets....
Went to Nine Springs this evening. There were many birds, on the second pond mostly. At least 20 Great egrets, 20 White pelicans - the egrets and pelicans were so close together that it was hard to tell them apart. There were also about 15 Sandhill cranes, 4 Great blue herons, many Canada geese (a few had goslings), about 4 shorebirds but when I noticed them it was too dark to see any details. There were also Red-winged blackbirds and robin, a Red-tailed hawk, a catbird, killdeer, nighthawks, and a Canada warbler. And there was a beautiful sunset.

Subject: [wisb] Biblioloons Birdathon 2019 (long)
The Biblioloons, representing Madison Audubon, ran our Birdathon on Saturday May 18.  This was a change from our original plan to run it on Sunday the 19th, incorporating the Baxter's Hollow field trip as part of it.  Since I postponed the field trip (likely to the first weekend in June,) due to the dicey forecast, we changed things up a bit this year and decided to incorporate a trip to Wyalusing St. Park instead.  

Pat Ready rode along as an "honorary" spotter (and self-proclaimed referee), and found probably half our birds.  Thanks, Pat!  Otherwise, the team these days consists of Peter Gorman and myself.  Pat and I got to Peter's house in Mt. Horeb about 6:15 a.m. (we're not hardcore, obviously.)  Our first stop was Thomson Prairie south of Blue Mounds, where we got our target, Upland Sandpipers (actually in a plowed field east of the prairie.)  Also picked up other common grassland birds, then headed back to 151.  We made a slight detour to look for a Harris's Sparrow that had been eBirded a few days earlier north of Mineral Point.  Whiffed on the sparrow, but picked up a bunch of other birds there, so a worthwhile stop.  We headed up to Hwy 18 and got a E. Collared Dove at a farm east of Edmund.  Then west to Wyalusing.  We unfortunately whiffed on Yellow-throated Warbler, but got nearly all of our other targets there, including Kentucky, Cerulean and Prothonotary Warblers.  Also
Acadian Flycatcher and Red-headed WP (strangely, on a tree up the closed road off Long Valley, which is where we had the Kentucky.)  About the only other expected thing we missed there was Louisiana Waterthrush.  

We decided to head for Gov. Dodge St. Park, which turned out to be a goldmine.  Next year, we'll skip Wyalusing and make that our main warbler spot, probably.  We opted not to hike down the Stephens Falls trail for the LA Waterthrush, but found the hotspot at the outflow cascade below the Cox Hollow Lake dam.  Many birds were flycatching over the rushing stream, including another Prothonotary, two Canada Warblers, Wilson's Warbler, and a whole bunch of Am. Redstarts.  Biggest surprise was an Olive-sided Flycatcher down at the bottom of the cascade.  On the drive back to the entrance, we stopped at the picnic area with the big pines, since I thought I heard a Pine Warbler there.  We did find it, along with two or three Orchard Orioles.

Next stop was Spring Green Preserve, where we got our targets, Lark and Grasshopper Sparrows.  Next, we went west on G and then Mercer Rd.  Steve Thiessen had been out there a couple days before and gave me some tips.  We got Brewer's Blackbirds in a flooded field, a singing Dickcissel on an overhead wire, and multiple calling Soras in the wetland at Mercer and Peck.  Right after that, we ran into Mike Mossman and his wife Lisa.  Peter was filling him in on what we were looking for, and mentioned that we still needed Bay-breasted and both waterthrushes.  Just down the road, we stopped to look for shorebirds that Pat had spotted while we were talking to Mike.  There were also two warblers in a clump of shrubs around a willow tree next to the road - a Northern Waterthrush and a Bay-breasted.  It was such a bizarre coincidence, we just laughed.  

Bakken's Pond was absolutely dead.  The water is extremely high, so all the marsh is flooded.  There were no ducks, and not much else.  Only interesting thing was a flock of Common Nighthawks hunting low over the water.We headed for Arena Boat Landing, where we finally heard our first Chickadee of the day!  This was around 7:00 p.m.  We also finally picked up a House Finch in Peter's neighborhood back in Mt. Horeb.  Trying for nocturnal species wasn't going to appreciably increase our rather paltry total of 112 species.  We did very well on warblers - 25 species, plus a Golden-winged that only I saw.  Other than our target Yellow-throated and LA Waterthrush, the only glaring miss was Nashville.  We did poorly on waterfowl (four species) and shorebirds (five, two of which are more cropland/pasture birds anyway.)  Most glaring misses were probably Least Flycatcher,  Kestrel and Red-tailed Hawk (weird.)  We saw a few Empids  that unfortunately never vocalized, so we may hav
e missed a couple species there.  

All in all, a better weather day than we had expected, with the only rain coming while we were in transit.  The lack of sun may have held our numbers down, though. We'll be going back to a more geographically compact route next year.  Just too long a haul to Wyalusing, as fun as it was.  

It's not too late to donate to the cause.  The Birdathon officially runs through June 15.  If you'd like to contribute to our team, we'd greatly appreciate it!

Subject: [wisb] Warblers
Silver Lake Park in Manitowoc county (just west of city on hwy 151); yesterday around noon, no camera, but
walked the interior path (only a 1/2 mile maybe) in scrubby old woods along a stream.  
20 verified warbler species with 6 being lifers for me.  I do not keep lists, but came home and noted 
everything we could positively ID.  I have never seen so many varied warblers EVER.   Rather than copying list, here are some highlights:  American redstart, Northern Parula (L), Magnolia, Chestnut Sided Warbler (L), Black throated Gray (L), Rufous capped (L), Common Yellowthroat.  BANK SWALLOWS!  I was quite excited about it all and highly recommend anyone take a walk on the inside trails there very soon.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Halfway through the Birdathon
Hello,
While we're on this important subject, "The Secretary Birds" composed of Mark Korducki, Quentin Yoerger, Aaron Haycraft, and myself will be running our route tomorrow (beginning at midnight tonight!). Our route goes from northern Door County, through the Green Bay area, to Sheboygan, and eventually to Horicon. We all know it's been a weird migration so it will be interesting to see how it turns out. We got oh so close to our pie-in-the-sky goal of 200 species with 196 last year on a similar route.

We would appreciate your support and if you do not support us, please support one of the other teams. It really is extremely important for local bird conservation. You can support us here:

https://wibirdathon.dojiggy.com/ng/index.cfm/18592/regPages/pledge/secretarybirds

For those of you on Facebook, I will post live highlights and tallies in the "Wisconsin Birding Reports" Facebook group. I will of course post any rarities (I hope!) and a big day summary here.

Thanks!

Tom Prestby
Green Bay

Hi everyone,

We're at the half-way point in Great Wisconsin Birdathon 2019, and 66% of the way toward our goal of $90,000 for the Bird Protection Fund. Current top stats (as far as I know them):


Fundraising:

Cutright's Old Coots

River Raptors

Lake Superior eBirders

Scan da Avians

Finch Gang


Species totals:

MuirLand Merlins 175

Cutright's Old Coots 169

Wausau Nutcrackers 136

Scan da Avians 132

Peddling Paddling Prius Pewees 122


And breaking news: we now have t-shirts! Link is on the home page at WIBirdathon.org.


With several weeks to go, there's still plenty of time to join the Birdathon, or donate to your favorite teams. Ryan Brady said it best: "Birds fulfill my life, and they need our help. They need more than bird feeders, a nest box, or decals on a window. They need habitat management, research & monitoring, urban conservation advocates, protection on tropical wintering grounds, and more. These are exactly the types of projects your donation will support this year." Did you know that the Bird Protection Fund actually contributes to the salaries of scientists like Ryan, when other funding is scarce? Or that it has supported Bird City Wisconsin since its beginning, allowing Bryan Lenz to help make FiServ Forum bird-friendly? Or that it is sponsors the Chequamegon Bay Bird and Nature Festival, and buys transmitters for Snowy Owls and Red-shouldered Hawks? So if you enjoy reading the State Birding Report, are obsessed with the Atlas, or enjoy the field trips at the Festival, you can be a pa
rtner by joining the Birdathon. Instructions and helpful links are on our Get Started page at WIBirdathon.org.


Thanks everyone and good birding!

Subject: [wisb] Heckrodt Wetland Reserve (Winnebago County)
With an opportunity to get outside (having been cooped up with two days of rain and cold), we ventured over to Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in Menasha. Heckrodt has its charm but honestly, for the past several years, the birding in spring has not been memorable. Until today. Imagine our surprise to discover 18 species of warblers! And in some cases repeated and close looks at Blackburnian, Canada, and Bay-breasted. Magnolia numbers were through the roof (counted at least 24 and there were probably more we missed).

Not like what we’ve seen at Bay Beach or High Cliff but for Heckrodt, remarkable:
Ovenbird (2)
Golden-winged Warbler (2)
Black-and-white Warbler (3)
Tennessee Warbler (1)
Orange-crowned Warbler (1)
Nashville Warbler (3)
American Redstart (7)
Northern Parula (2)
Magnolia Warbler (25 - probably more)
Bay-breasted Warbler (4)
Blackburnian Warbler (5)
Yellow Warbler (2)
Chestnut-sided Warbler (4)
Palm Warbler (2) surprising low number
Yellow-rumped Warbler (5)
Black-throated Green Warbler (4)
Canada Warbler (1)
Wilson's Warbler (1)

Also four vireo species: Yellow-throated (1), Blue-headed (4), Warbling (2) and Red-eyed (5).
Thrush numbers were also through the roof: Swainson's (at least two dozen). Gray-cheeked, Veery and a knock-dead gorgeous Wood Thrush.

58 species in a few hours of birding. Plus, the Barred Owl nest cavity showed some activity with two young owls rustling about inside, peeking out from time to time.

Rule of thumb: If there are warblers at Heckrodt, they must be EVERYWHERE else!

hi,
  On May 14th i saw a male hooded towards the east end of the Locust St. Ravine (Lake Park) at eye level & it certainly made my day :) It was a very beautiful experience & the bird was seemingly relaxed. Thank you to the person who pointed me in the direction (i don't know if he's on here or not).

here is my checklist with pics attached if anyone cares to view: https://ebird.org/wi/view/checklist/S56282425

I've had a great time with warblers this Spring so far as i can tell i am more comfortable with identifying them.

good birding!!!

Wow - quite the conversation - and a good one I think, but as happens so
often in emails (text etc) lack of intonation of spoken words (and facial
expressions) results in words 'misinterpreted'.  I am 'visiting' SE
Wisconsin (though I have been here longer than expected).  So I am not so
familiar with 'common' and 'not-so-common' species in the area; range maps
can be misleading; nor am I familiar with the 'players' here.
It was not my intent to suggest that anyone had 'scolded' me about the
commonality of hooded warblers.  and, yes, 'common' has different
interpretations.  Re-reading my second post, I can see how it might have
been misinterpreted.  my apologies.

Subject: [wisb] MKE - Whitnall Park 27/24 warbler species 5/18-5/19
Good evening,
The last two days have been extremely good at Whitnall Park, more
specifically Wehr Nature Center. Yesterday, I had 27 warbler species and
today I had 24, although I missed on two, so really 26 were seen today. The
majority of the action is along the creek from waterfall to the bridge on
the road. Rubber, knee high boots is a must to navigate the 4" of mud and
up to 12" of standing water. It's worth it though, as most warblers feed
right on the ground and if you stay still, they will come within a foot of
you. Pretty incredible seeing these tiny birds sit a foot from your face,
while searching for the next flying bug. It may still be good there
tomorrow. Good luck!

Subject: [wisb] Blackpoll, Bay-Breasted Warbler, Blue-headed Vireo, Etc. Seasonal Sightings: Milwaukee Area & Madison Area
Hello friends:
Two productive, excellent birding venues visited today in Whitefish Bay (2nd suburb north of Milwaukee on the North Shore).

1. Estabrook Park at the pond in the central portion of the park’s east side (across from a dog park):

- 1 male BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER (heard singing initially, then seen for a few enjoyable minutes)

- 2 singing NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, with one eventually sleuthed and seen

2. At the corner of Henry Clay & Lake Drive adjacent to Lake Michigan:

- 1 BLACKPOLL
(Interesting that the first-year female Yellow-rumped Warbler nearby along with three Palm Warbler suggest the logical phenology is not
happening this spring migration season.

That is to say, the typical, initial vanguard transient wood-warbler species (e.g., Yellow-rumped Warbler) are mixing with
wood-warbler species that often initially appear later
in southeastern WI (e.g., Blackpoll).

- 2 male BAY-BREASTED WARBLER

- 1 singing N. PARULA, then seen….and one silent one seen nearby.

Later in Madison, I noticed one first-year male AMERICAN REDSTART in suburbia (near corner of Herro &Pflaum (southeastern Madison) )

Regards, Daniel, who looks forward to seeing you at the WSO if you’re going…..

Subject: [wisb] Hudsonian Godwit at C & V (Dane Co.)
Make that Godwits, plural.  There were two Hudsonians, one in basic and one in breeding plumage, at the flooded field on Dane County C, just south of V.  When I arrived, both birds were feeding close together on the east side of C, directly across from the field access by the electrical box that is a convenient spot to pull off.  Near them was a Short-billed Dowitcher, and there were two more Dowitchers way in the back part that may have also been Short-billed (going strictly by shape - flat backs.)  There was a Black-bellied Plover near those two that was going into breeding plumage, so much easier to identify even with my scope shaking in the howling wind.  Also present were 95 Dunlin, a few L. Yellowlegs, a half-dozen Semipalmated Plovers, a lone Semipalmated Sandpiper, and a few Least SPs.  This was around 5:30 p.m. today.

Further north and west, just into Columbia County, there were a number of shorebirds on the west side of Harvey Rd. between Wangsness Rd. and County DM.  I estimated 150 Dunlin, plus half a dozen Lesser Yellowlegs and a Wilson's Phalarope in stunning breeding plumage (hence a female.)  

Both of these locations have a good amount of water, so should continue to host shorebirds as long as migration lasts (into early June, probably.)

A few birders were looking for the White-faced Ibis in the Oregon business park early this afternoon, but it was not found, at least by the time I left.  The wind was really kicking up out of the southwest at that point, so I wonder if it took off?

Subject: [wisb] Halfway through the Birdathon
Hi everyone,

We're at the half-way point in Great Wisconsin Birdathon 2019, and 66% of the way toward our goal of $90,000 for the Bird Protection Fund. Current top stats (as far as I know them):


Fundraising:

Cutright's Old Coots

River Raptors

Lake Superior eBirders

Scan da Avians

Finch Gang


Species totals:

MuirLand Merlins 175

Cutright's Old Coots 169

Wausau Nutcrackers 136

Scan da Avians 132

Peddling Paddling Prius Pewees 122


And breaking news: we now have t-shirts! Link is on the home page at WIBirdathon.org.


With several weeks to go, there's still plenty of time to join the Birdathon, or donate to your favorite teams. Ryan Brady said it best: "Birds fulfill my life, and they need our help. They need more than bird feeders, a nest box, or decals on a window. They need habitat management, research & monitoring, urban conservation advocates, protection on tropical wintering grounds, and more. These are exactly the types of projects your donation will support this year." Did you know that the Bird Protection Fund actually contributes to the salaries of scientists like Ryan, when other funding is scarce? Or that it has supported Bird City Wisconsin since its beginning, allowing Bryan Lenz to help make FiServ Forum bird-friendly? Or that it is sponsors the Chequamegon Bay Bird and Nature Festival, and buys transmitters for Snowy Owls and Red-shouldered Hawks? So if you enjoy reading the State Birding Report, are obsessed with the Atlas, or enjoy the field trips at the Festival, you can be a pa
rtner by joining the Birdathon. Instructions and helpful links are on our Get Started page at WIBirdathon.org.


Thanks everyone and good birding!

Subject: [wisb] Prothonotary Warbler and more Wehr Nature Center MKE Co. 5/19/19, some images...
Hi all,
I stopped at Wehr Nature Center this morning in hopes there was still some
warbler action going on. There was and many warblers were present in the
time I was there. Warblers species seen this morning were Prothonotary,
Bay-breasted, Northern Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-sided, Common Yellowthroat,
Wilson’s, Yellow-rumped, Canada, Magnolia, Black-and-white, American
Redstart and the Mourning. The Prothonotary Warbler bathed for a few
minutes which was quite exciting to watch. It was a nice morning with
pleasant temps, no rain as it was predicted, and low winds.

Subject: [wisb] Re: hooded warbler reported at Whitnall
Wow - quite the conversation - and a good one I think, but as happens so
often in emails (text etc) lack of intonation of spoken words (and facial
expressions) results in words 'misinterpreted'. I am 'visiting' SE
Wisconsin (though I have been here longer than expected). So I am not so
familiar with 'common' and 'not-so-common' species in the area; range maps
can be misleading; nor am I familiar with the 'players' here.
It was not my intent to suggest that anyone had 'scolded' me about the
commonality of hooded warblers. and, yes, 'common' has different
interpretations. Re-reading my second post, I can see how it might have
been misinterpreted. my apologies.

happy birding

Subject: [wisb] Re: hooded warbler reported at Whitnall

Commonality is related both to location and recency, and highly dependent on
the frequency and skill of observations, and knowledge of the observer.
The word "common" is also relative, having both technical and colloquial
uses.
While Hooded Warblers have been regular breeders in the Mangan Woods, across
the street from Wehr, for several years, they aren't necessarily easy to
find even when they're present. They're excellent skulkers, and even if you
know their song and where to look, they're often tough to spot.
You may know they are present and still need to visit their territory often
to perceive them as common.

So I don't think we need to scold anyone for hyping a supposed common bird,
or harp on semantics. If someone sees a Hooded Warbler, their day is made!
This listserv is best when we are sharing information, keeping an open mind
as to each others' skill levels, staying positive and encouraging, without
getting to preachy. (Sorry for getting a little preachy about being
preachy.)

Good Birding!

Subject: [wisb] Re: hooded warbler reported at Whitnall
Well, actually, if you look at eBird, the reporting rate for Hooded warbler in the Milwaukee area is in the 2-10% range, so it is not "common". The Barger, Robbins and Temple checklist of Wisconsin Birds (WSO 1988), also classifies Hooded warblers as uncommon in the State. The categories are Abundant, common, uncommon, Rare (regular/irregular). There are more sightings this spring, but the historic abundance level is "uncommon".

Killdeer. About 75 Ring-billed Gulls were loading out there. The Ibis moved
around quite a bit in the 20 mins I was there.I could see it find with
binoculars but a scope would be better of course.

I heard secondhand late this afternoon that Kris Perlberg found a
White-faced Ibis in a flooded field in the Oregon Business Park.  This
would be across the street from Lerner Park.  I have no other details, and
I see no one posted it here yet.  Looks like multiple reports on eBird,

I believe that Greg Hottman of Oregon found this bird first. I just happened to be at this location around the same time, looking for a White-rumped Sandpiper that Steve T. found earlier in the day. I was not able to find the sandpiper but the Ibis was a nice consolation!

Around noon today while glancing out the window to see which birds were visiting our feeders I spotted a brilliant all orange bird with black wings foraging on the ground. I thought Scarlet Tanager but it wasn’t scarlet. A beautiful bird. I called my wife to the window and we observed it for less than a minute before it was gone. I checked my Peterson & Sibley and learned that orange variants are possible.
By the way, our Oriole flocks (Baltimore & Orchard) assisted by Catbirds and Red-bellied Woodpeckers have consumed 9 lbs of grape jelly to date.

I birded the marsh along 49 for a few hours early this morning (starting at 7:30) when i ran into Scott B plus a few other birders checking the north pond. Am impressive number and variety of shorebirds were present, as had been posted by Steve T the previous day. (An interesting note is that I had birded the pond Thursday afternoon when NOT one shorebird was present; thus I was really surprised by Steve's great post for the following day.) Scott and I found the following (Scott was there already at 5:30 as he was participating in the Fond du Lac county May Day count): 5 Hudsonian Godwits, 1 Marbled Godwit, 2-4 Ruddy Turnstones, hundreds (!) of Dunlins, many Least sandpipers, about 10 Short-billed and 1 Long-billed Dowitcher, 8 Black-bellied Plovers, 60+ Semipalmated Plovers, 2 Black-necked Stilts (only present for a short time), many Lesser Yellowlegs.

After an hour things got busy and nice species where seen. Some of the
highlight warblers were Mourning, Bay-breasted, Blackburnian, Blackpoll,
Yellow, Canada, Magnolia, American Redstart and Chestnut-sided. It was an
overcast morning and nice temps, low winds making it very comfortable.

I checked out the shorebirds, on the north side of Hy 49, starting at 7:15 am. There was an amazing number of Dunlin ( over 300), maybe 100 Semipalmated Plovers , large numbers of Least. The Marbled Godwit was there in the morning, along with a Hudsonian. On my way back though ,in the afternoon, there was a pair of Hudsonian’s. I had 1 Baird’s, 3 White-rumped and a few Semipalmated Sandpipers, 2 basic Sanderlings, around a dozen turnstones, a number of S-b Dowitchers, 3 Wilson’s Phalaropes and 8 Black-bellied Plovers.
There were very few shorebirds anywhere else along 49.
I stopped at Sheboygan. I got good looks at many terns, behind the Youth Sailing (?) building. I didn’t find any arctic. I wasn’t really checking out the larger gulls , but did notice 1 imm. L B-b Gull.
Manitowoc had very little. No boni’s, just 5 shorebirds.

I have come home tonight to a Baltimore Oriole convention! I have 25-30 Orioles fighting over the grape jelly and oranges tonight - they must be migrating through. I normally have 5-8 here. The yard is full of their song and color, and it makes me wonder what it would be like to have to endure this all summer. It would make my winters so much longer and duller than they already are, as I am so starved for color each year when spring arrives. I am enjoying this immensely, and I am sure tomorrow when the cold and rain arrives they will be gone. But it is grand while they are all here. I am glad I am well stocked with grape jelly.

Subject: [wisb] High Cliff, Van Patten Rd
I checked High Cliff this morning. Other birders were also present at times. The Butterfly and Lime Kiln trails were very good. About 20 warblers were seen including a Yellow-br. Chat. Several flycatchers and vireos were also seen plus Scarlet Tanagers, Indigo Bunting, etc. A check of the Van Pattern Rd flooded field (6 dikes have nothing) yielded shorebirds with the best being a Hudsonian Godwit. Also present were Black-bellied Plovers, Dunlins, Lesser Yellowlegs, both dowitchers (mainly Short-billed) etc.

Subject: [wisb] Crex Meadows, Burnett
The reports from the SE to NE Wisconsin are amazing. We, however, went to the west side to bird with our son, particularly Crex Meadows and the surrounding area. On cty rd U before we even got close to The northern section of Crex we had to pull over because of a lot of activity in the trees. We got ten warblers including Tennessee, Nashville, Blackpoll and Blackburnian. Also in a woods on U, owned by my cousin, the air was alive with the sound of Ovenbirds. My son heard the drumming of Ruffed Grouse. Veerys and Swainson’s were also seen.
Leaving U and going onto Cty F we once again stopped and got Canada, Bay breasted, lots of Yellows and a Wilson’s warbler.
Crex was absent of ducks except for Ringnecks and an occasional BW Teal or Mallard. No shore birds or herons or egrets. A rednecked grebe finally made staring at all that water worth it. In a small flowage, Black terns were the highlight and an American Bittern flyover. But in the wooded habitat and margins we got Vesper sparrow, lots of Eastern Toyhees, Lark Sparrow and Philadelphia Vireo. Saw and thankfully heard a Least Flycatcher,otherwise he would have been a mystery.

A side note, on our way up we found a little hidden gem , Hunt Hill Sanctuary, about 18 miles north of Rice Lake. Used to be associated with Audubon but not is locally supported by Friends of Hunt Hill. In spite of 4 busloads of teenagers from Hayward on a field trip we still got Bobolinks, Bluebirds and a Clay colored sparrow. On a quiet day I am sure it would be productive area.

So the birds have broken through to the north for sure.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary HIGH warbler movement today + Cerulean
Update: Hooded Warbler female yesterday
Jim Johnson had a bird that he was hesitant to call yesterday and was
wanting to consult his bird books once home. His consensus this morning is
that it was indeed a Hooded Warbler. A 1st year female, according to Sibley.

His conservative numbers from yesterday were 1372 Warblers, estimating we
came across 10% of the total birds at the Sanctuary, give or take. What a
thought!

For two days now the Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay has been full of
migrating birds. But while yesterday was really good... today was at a
level no one could have expected. A few of us were there 8.5+ hours and
from end to end the Sanctuary seemed alive with Warblers! Hundreds of birds
were seen in all directions in certain high density areas, with the
multitude of songs being as amazing as anything! Most of the Warblers were
10' or less off the ground, and many were feeding right on the ground.
The rarity of the day was a female CERULEAN that was seen twice (or 2
birds?). The first sighting was before noon on Sanctuary Rd. near the gates
and the second was around 3pm on the east side of the Hussong trail. Other
species were 2 Philadelphia Vireo, 15 Red-eyed Vireo, 7-10 Scarlet
Tanagers, 10+ each of Golden-winged and Black-throated Blue, over 40
Bay-breasted - 3 or more in the same field of view on occasion!, 50+
Blackpolls,
and easily over 100 Blackburnian. With the numbers of many other Warbler
species present being the same or higher, it was a rare day that none of us
will soon forget.

It's incredibly hard to put an amazing Warbler migration event like this
into words, but I think the best praise that could go to it came from Jim
Johnson around 4pm when he said that he'd have to think about it a little
more... but this was most likely the BEST day he has ever seen in 35+ years
of birding at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary!!! A grand title indeed from
a true legend in the Wisconsin birding community.

Still playing catchup because of the long day yesterday.

Two days ago, after searching for sparrows in the morning, I spent the afternoon working on my garden at my farm. As I was about to leave I hear the great crested flycatcher calling for the first time this year. A pr has been at my farm for 5 or so years. I also noticed a little warbler activity. While trying to spot the warblers, a female summer tanager flew in. This is the first S tanager I've seen in WI.

Anyone who was thinking of going on the Madison Audubon field trip this coming Sunday (May 19) to Baxter's Hollow, I may need to preemptively cancel it if the forecast doesn't improve significantly in the next 24 hours.  As of now, it looks like a very good chance of heavy rain and T-storms, and that is one place you really don't want to be caught in either event.  I'd prefer not to have a group gather there, only to have to cancel at the time or shortly after starting.  
If I do cancel it, I'll attempt to find someone to lead it the following weekend (its usual date anyway.)  Stay tuned to Wisbirdn, and check the MAS website and Facebook page, for further updates.

Subject: [wisb] Warblers and highlights from Bayside Wisconsin.
Hello friends:   Providing a link to pictures I was able to take at
Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, Bayside, on May 14 and May 06.

It looks like there is finally lots to see for everyone, regardless of
where they are.   Have been able to watch Black & White warblers for
extended periods of time at this site.

They are great fun to watch.

For shots of Black and White, Blackburnian, White throat, Red-breasted
Nuthatch, Magnolia, Common Yellow throat and Catbird, please see:

Subject: [wisb] YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER ~ Fox River Sanctuary WAUK. Co. 5/15/19, image...
Hi all,
After birding for a good part of the day and getting home, I was surprised
to see the report of the male Yellow-throated Warbler a few miles from me
by Tim Hahn. I decided to chase over there and try for it. After birding
for awhile I ran into Greg N there we we birded together for about 20
minutes. While birding I spotted Tim and Pat H there. They took us to where
they had seen the Yellow-throated Warbler. After about 5 minutes, the bird
appeared. It hung around for 3-4 minutes and then flew off. I have only
heard this bird at Wyalusing State Park, so not a lifer, but sure nice to
finally see one right here in Waukesha. Thanks to Tim Hahn for getting the
word out on this bird. I hope the bird hangs around in case others want to
try for it. A pleasant afternoon it was.

An image of the Yellow-throated Warbler from today at the link below if you
care to view it:

Subject: [wisb] 26 warblers!
A group of us assembled early this morning at Bay Beach sanctuary. We knew it was going to be an excellent day as we spent over a half hour in the parking lot area tallying 16 warblers. As we covered the rest of the sanctuary warblers were everywhere! We ended with 26 species with most having good numbers. Only the Wilson's, Canada, Pine and Blackpoll were singles. In addition several Scarlet Tanagers were watched, plus 4 vireos, 5 thrushes, a few Indigo Buntings, etc. For the morning (5+ hours of walking) the list total was 95, perhaps even a few more some of us broke off going towards noon. This is what we have all been waiting for, and none of us were disappointed. A great morning with great birds, birders and weather. A real fun time!

Subject: [wisb] Warblers Everywhere
What a great day! I am finding that when there are war lers at root river
on my a.m. dog walk, it will be a good day for birding. Today did not
disappoint.
In addition to a brief look while dog walking, I headed to Grant park in
hopes of a cerulean. I wanted to go to Lake Park for the hooded, but
driving into/through downtown at 8 am was not appealing. Besides, while, I
have not seen a hooded in the U.S., I did find one in central america many
years ago. So off to Grant.

There was so much activity in the trees I almost couldn`t focus.

Am. Redstart (lots of them)
Yellow
Yellow-rumped
Palm
Nashville
Orange-crowned
Yellow-throat
Black n white
Blackpoll (Lifer! Yea!)
Blackburnian
Cape may
Magnolia
Chestnut-sided
N. Parula
Bay-breasted

There were a few so high in the trees, I just couldn't id them.
Other highlights were a veery, least flycatcher, red-headed woodpecker.

Off to Whitnall for the afternoon.

Btw: Eastern towhee seem particularly absent. I think I've seen 2 this
spring whereas I seem to recall finding them nearly everywhere I went, in
past years (several years ago now). Thoughts?

Enjoy your day

There are birds everywhere you look. Up high down low. I'm standing near
the lighthouse and have five Lincoln sparrows on the ground. Jeremy M found
at Brewster's warbler. A kid told me he found a Le Contes Sparrow.
I'm pretty sure I just had a yellow-bellied flycatcher.

Subject: [wisb] SUMMER TANAGER ~ 1st year male Wehr Nature Center MKE Co. 5/15/19, some images...
Hi all,
My first birding stop this morning was Wehr Nature Center for warblers. I
was headed into Milwaukee but felt I had to check this place out first as
talk of weather pattern might give us a great day for warblers. The creek
areas were very quiet warbler wise. My next stop was over at the center
itself to check if anything had come in over night. Upon arriving a
stunning 1st year male Summer Tanager was looking right at me near the
feeders on a fence. The bird went for a bee at the hives there, perched and
ate it. It took another and perched and ate that too. The bird looked a
little tired and maybe had flown very many miles recently. On a third try
for a bee the tanager came down out of a tree and did a small window crash
but never lost flight, never hitting the ground. It was shocking to see
this happen. After that it perched fairly high for a couple of minutes and
then took off flying west. I remained at the area for another hour and it
never returned. Hopefully this beautiful bird will come back for others to
see it. A beautiful morning out with full sun, low breeze, very pleasant. I
then headed back over to the creek area for warblers and it had become very
busy!

Images of this beautiful Summer Tanager at the link below if you care to
view them:

Nighthawks are calling over northern Lake Kegonsa.
I step out on the porch:
One "pair" more or less overhead, one to the southeast,
another north ... maybe a couple of hundred feet up.
They are soaring in large circles ... towards the northwest.
They seem to stop calling while I am watching with binoculars.
A few minutes later I hear them again ... from inside -
then they are gone.
Gentle wind from the south.

Went to Wilderness Park in Neenah to help my wife pull garlic mustard.
Never got to the garlic mustard for all the warblers. This site is
around 400 meters in length. First bird I saw was a Mourning Warbler!!
Then the following warblers came through Northern Parula, Black and
White, Black Throated Blue, Magnolia, Yellow Rump, American Redstart,
Palm, Blue-Winged, Yellow, Nashville, Common Yellowthroat, Northern
Waterthrush. A wood thrush, two orchard orioles, a number of
flycatchers, and a call from an American Bittern. Most of the species
were close enough that binoculars were not necessary. Hopefully
everyone else is having an equally productive day of birding. Rory

Seeing the radar - I figured getting a little more inland would be more fruitful, as Lake Park had continued to be too labor intensive this last week and I was right!

Subject: [wisb] Great Crested flycatcher and . .
Saw a Great Crested this morning while walking my dog at root river parkway
near coldspring road.
And Wilson's warblers have finally arrived! It's funny they are about the
last warbler here (or at least I have not seen any yet and have not seen
them listed by others) when they are the first warblers to arrive in the
so. california deserts. I was really beginning to wonder.

Also stopped by Whitnall - the roadway bridge spot (log-jam??) was dead
quiet - much to my surprise, but had a good sampling at the foot bridge a
little downstream (near the playground).

Am. redstart
yellows
chestnut sided
nashville
yellow-rumped

black throated green (only my 2nd this year)

Subject: [wisb] Black-throated Blue Warbler still at Ho Nee Um (Madison)
The B-T Blue Warbler that was reported at the Ho Nee Um section of the UW Arboretum was still there this morning.  I had stopped to look/listen around 9:15 without success and was heading back to the car, when someone said she'd heard it singing about ten minutes before that, on the other side of the boardwalk.  I went over there, and heard it sing once, but couldn't spot it, although the birder standing next to me had a glimpse of blue.  It was way up in the big oaks, so you need to get lucky. That would have been around 9:45 a.m. or so today.  Several other more common warbler species also around, along with loads of Baltimore Orioles.
By the way, the section of boardwalk near the pond that is "temporarily closed" has lots of popping boards and screws, so it's closed for a reason, even though it's not apparent from either end.  Best to take the long way, down at the pond edge, even though that has a couple of loose spots also.

I am hoping someone can help with a bird vocalization. This is a very
noticeable two-note call with just a brief separation. It has a clear sweet
whistle quality and each note is slightly ascending. It was coming from a
wooded area and an upper story location. I tried to call it in with a
whistled imitation but was unsuccessful.

Hello,
Joining the two Red-breasted Nuthatches today were two Pine Siskins at our yard in southern Milwaukee County. The two Purple Finches seen a few days ago have moved on. A few of my native trees have yet to even start to leaf out, but most have started to leaf out a little. This is one of the latest leafing out for the trees I have ever seen in my neck of the woods. Good news for seeing the latter arriving Warblers!

Subject: [wisb] Big Bay Birdathon Results
Fellow Birders,

Bird City Green Bay held it 8th annual Big Bay Birdathon this last weekend (May 10-11). Migrants were tough to come by with but the weather held out and the birds cooperated.

The team of Sarah Ellefson, Brian Pierce, and Adam Sinkula came in 1st with 158 species; Ron Eichhorn and Joan Berkopec came in 2nd with 142 and the Team of Karen Browne, Kay Kavanagh, and Tim & Mary Maertz came in 3rd with 137 species.

The 7 teams together found 187 species, adding 5 new species to the all-time event list which now sits at 232 species. They were Black Scoter, Whimbrel, American Pipit, Grasshopper Sparrow and Western Tanager. This years list includes 20 duck species, 14 sparrows, 18 shorebirds, and 22 warblers despite the lull in migration.

Most importantly, we raised over $3100 for local conservation and research projects with the team of Nancy Nabak, Russ Shissel, and Art Sonneland gathering more than half of that! Thank you to all those who participated and we look forward to seeing you next year!

Hi all,
One of my birding stops today was Lake Park in Milwaukee. The birds of the
day there were 2 beautiful male Hooded Warblers. They fed high up in the
tree tops most of the time. At one time one was lower and gave great views
near the north bridge. One image shows a fly in the bill of the bird, that
was one of the things these birds were eating at the park today. A couple
warblers were seen but nothing to brag about there. A beautiful sunny day
but the steady winds off the lake made for a chilly day!

A link below to some images of a Hooded Warbler from today if you care to
view them:

I did an early morning check of the park (need to water proof my deck today). As expected it was quiet. There was one small warbler movement on the Lime Kiln trail which yielded 7 warblers including Wilson's and Black-thro. Blue. So far this month this is the most (?) warblers I have seen at the park. Certainly reinforces the late migration for this spring.

Subject: [wisb] 800+ Chimney Swifts Roost Okauchee WI
Fall Chimney Swift Migration concluded in Waukesha at the end of October in
2018. It started for Spring 2019 just about May 1. In Okauchee, Wisconsin
lies the Old Norris School which has been at this location since the early
1920’s with its beautiful large ol' chimney! This site has proved that it
is quite the migrating Chimney Swift roost-site with some Fall nights that
had over an estimated 4000 swifts going into the chimney to roost for the
night. About a week ago, it was reported that people were seeing swifts
flying around the chimney in Okauchee and going in at sunset. This Sunday
night, I arrived about 7:45 PM and about 20 birds were circling the
chimney, and the numbers kept increasing. Sunset was at 8:07pm, and at
about 8:11, the swifts started entering the chimney out of the swirling
cloud that was now pretty large. For the next 20 minutes, an estimated
800+ swifts dove into the chimney, and stragglers continued after that for
another 15 minutes. These birds have returned from their wintering in
upper South America. How did they find this location again out of all the
hundreds of thousands of swifts that migrated back to the north American
continent? It’s known that birds “imprint” on parents when born, and
follow them. Perhaps the young just “follow” the adults and learn the
topography of the land between here and South America. It was also noted
that in the fall, the stragglers when entering usually enter pretty soon
after the majority have completed entry, but now in spring, the stragglers
seem spaced out, arriving in late spurts. Again perhaps, the young birds
are still learning the process of how it’s done, and where this “stop” is
located on their route. I would assume that other “roosts” around
Wisconsin should be experiencing this same “roosting” phenomenon. Are the
places you-know-of seeing this happen also? Passers-by noted the large
cloud of chittering birds, and guessed that they were “bats”. We
corrected that misperception!

Hi all,
Up to 4 Pine Warblers have been visiting and feeding here in the yard. They
have been viewed for about the last 3 weeks on and off daily. I think they
might nesting close?? The bird(s) feed for 5 -10 minutes then leave. On
occasion they will take a grub from the lawn and fly away with it, to a
possible nest?? It has been fun to watch and I will soon see if I can get
more details on this event trying to watch where these birds are going.

My wife and I hiked the Lac Laurann Preserve today in West Bend.  We came across a number of birds, all of them regular visitors of the park.  Lots of red wing blackbirds and several Canada geese.  Small numbers of robins, black capped chickadees, downy woodpeckers, white breasted nuthatches, at least one red bellied woodpecker calling (a lot) but not seen.  The two highlights were singing Baltimore Orioles, who were flying from high tree top to high tree top, and, I believe, nest there most years, as well as a cacophony of sandhill cranes.  The cranes were calling loudly and excitedly.  I think an small outside group was trying to nest there and it seems that the group was being heckled out of the preserve. One small group kept moving from area to area before flying away completely.  We saw NO warblers or anything else that would have seemed to be passing through.Alan LinquistWashington County

Subject: [wisb] Black-throated Gray Warbler -Ozaukee County
Just seen about 20 minutes ago, in a warbler flock in my back yard, on Lake Michigan (Ozaukee Country). Have just put 3 photos on eBird; also have really good but shaky video taken through my camera as well, but can’t download on eBird, probably too long (20 seconds or so).
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56181984

If anyone wants to take a crack at re-finding the bird, you’re welcome to visit the property this afternoon. Please email me, or text 414-975-0369. Who knows how long it will hang around.

I had the Buff-Bellied Hummingbird here for one day a couple years ago. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, kept thinking some crazy kind of Blackpoll hybrid.

Subject: [wisb] Horicon & Bay Beach
Yesterday three of us lead the friday bus trip on the first day of the festival. We worked hard for the species but everyone had a great time. Only 15 species of warblers could be found, 14 were at Ziegler Park with the 15th on the old marsh road. Also only 11 species of shorebirds could be found with only one shorebird along 49---a Black-necked Stilt. About 5 American Pipits were found at two spots west of the marsh.
We ended with a respectable 113 species.
Today I joined the warbler walk at Bay Beach Sanctuary. The local birdathon was on and groups were moving all over. There were a limited number of warblers found until four of us (none doing a birdathon) saw an Orchard Oriole beyond the parking lot as we were leaving. For the next half hour we watched 14 warblers appear with the best being Golden and Blue-winged. For the time we were there 18 warblers were tallied. Hopefully more were found by the groups remaining on the sanctuary. They are here but in small numbers and now you see them and then nothing. It certainly was a fun way to end the walk.

Several birders looked for the Summer Tanager that Aaron Balogh reported at Nine Springs this morning, without success.  Lots of Yellow-rumps, a few Magnolia Warblers, and a bunch of Ruby-crowned Kinglets were all moving through quickly, as was a female Scarlet Tanager that Shawn Miller and I had a brief glimpse of before it, too, was gone.  I did have my FOY Red-eyed Vireo along the bike path as I headed back to the parking lot.

Subject: [wisb] slow birding but . . .
today was wild card for finding birds. While searching in vain for a bay
breasted or cerulean (HA!) I did hear an eastern wood pewee in Whitnall.
Saw other flycatchers, but none were vocalizing, with the possible
exception of an acadian - but I do Not know my eastern flycatchers by
song/call at all.
However, yesterday I would have sworn I heard a bell's vireo along the root
river near Cold Spring rd. This Is a bird I am very familiar with, having
done many surveys for the 'least Bell's vireo' in so. Cal some years back.
Looking at the range map - Its hard to say whether they really occur here
or not. Checking the "Breeding Guideline Bar Chart" I downloaded from
somewhere - this bird has an asterisk. Any info would be appreciated.

I also heard a willow flycatcher - at Whitnall late today.

Gonna be a chilly night . . does Spring ever get here or do you just go
from 'early' spring to Summer these days??

Cheers

Subject: [wisb] the good , the bad and the ugly
All
I haven't had much of a chance to try for warblers so decided today was the day. Only one place was good... thee others were either bad or ugly.

I started at Lake Park in Milwaukee about 0800. Based on the reports from yesterday I had fairly high hopes. But it was BAD. In 1 hr+, I had only one N waterthrush, a bunch of palms, and that was it for warblers. Next I tried Sheridan Park. Slow also but not terrible. I had about 10 warbler spp with the best being N parula, black-throated blue, and blackburian. Next stop was Whitnall Park, specifically the area that I believe the locals call the log jam (on the creek). Here I had 13 warbler spp, with the best being Cape May, prothonotary, and N parula. This gave me 15 spp for the day. I hoped to add a couple more by stopping in Mayville (Zigler (sp) Park) on the way home but it was another terrible spot and I saw almost nothing.

BTW, I know many of you see W pelicans at Horicon and elsewhere. However, if you want closeup views you might want to try Beaver Dam L. The bay on the S side of the bridge on CTH G (what we call Long Bridge just outside of town) almost always has a bunch. They often are in groups of 10-20 fishing in coordinated fashion together. There also are often a bunch just above the dam in town off Madison St.

Thank you for the feedback to you both!  When i got a good look at the bird, Cooper's didn't even cross my mind. I have seen little ones in the nest, but i am not familiar with the appearance of an immature. Now that it was suggested i took a look and i see a very good fit for Cooper's as well. Thank you for the explanations of the barring and the wings, it is very helpful.

Good morning,  I saw a Bobolink at Bradford Beach yesterday afternoon. It was near the north end feeding where a garbage can is knocked over & contents spilled. A very lovely male.


I also saw a Broad winged Hawk. If someone would please confirm broad winged & not red shoulder for my on my checklist i would appreciate it!! I have not seen either of these hawks in person before & i feel about 90% on my ID. This was 2 lifers for me at one location/same day & 3rd & 4th lifers for me in the last 6 weeks!!

After a near by appointment i went to look for terns & gulls as i saw a checklist from the day before w/an incredible number of gulls. I saw very few of these, but as it looked like a low pressure system thing was happening & the clouds were looking pretty wild & like it was going to storm, i saw 2,000 Double crested Cormorants push in from the south in one big group. They poured in. I continued to see them arrive in groups at MB after this large push.

GREAT experience for an impromptu trip. Wishing i was off work today & good luck to those who are.

The Western Tanager is still coming to our yard. We had sightings in the morning and and then twice this afternoon.We were out from 11 - 2 so he could have been around hen as well. He was just here about 5 minutes ago. In the morning he was on the south side of the house but just now he was over on the north side. We have oriole feeders on both sides. This morning though, at times, we observed him going after insects, very flycatcher-like.

I finally got over to Picnic Point on the west end of the UW campus after work yesterday to look for the reported White-eyed Vireo.  With the cool wind and gloomy skies, not too many birds were singing, but there was a lot of feeding activity down low and on the ground.  There were a bunch of Nashville Warblers working through the bluebells and May apples along the paved path up from the main, stone walled entrance.  I had turned up the path to the left that goes out to the Biocore Prairie and the gardens, but could tell that there wasn't as much activity that way due to the wind, so I turned back.  There was another birder at the junction with the main path who pointed out the White-eyed Vireo as it foraged actively a few feet off the ground.  The bird never vocalized, but we had multiple excellent looks at it.  This was around 5:45 p.m.  I would suspect there's a good chance the bird stuck around overnight.

Good morning,  I saw a Bobolink at Bradford Beach yesterday afternoon. It was near the north end feeding where a garbage can is knocked over & contents spilled. A very lovely male.


I also saw a Broad winged Hawk. If someone would please confirm broad winged & not red shoulder for my on my checklist i would appreciate it!! I have not seen either of these hawks in person before & i feel about 90% on my ID. This was 2 lifers for me at one location/same day & 3rd & 4th lifers for me in the last 6 weeks!!

After a near by appointment i went to look for terns & gulls as i saw a checklist from the day before w/an incredible number of gulls. I saw very few of these, but as it looked like a low pressure system thing was happening & the clouds were looking pretty wild & like it was going to storm, i saw 2,000 Double crested Cormorants push in from the south in one big group. They poured in. I continued to see them arrive in groups at MB after this large push.

GREAT experience for an impromptu trip. Wishing i was off work today & good luck to those who are.

here is my BB checklist: https://ebird.org/wi/view/checklist/S56068205

here is the  checklist i saw from Ozaukee if anyone is interested: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56014185

Subject: [wisb] Northern Mockingbird at Lake Park, Milwaukee 5/9
After reading Jennifer's post about the White-eyed Vireo, this afternoon I
went to the park but failed to find it. In no way was I disappointed,
though. At the head of Locust Ravine a Northern Mockingbird popped up for
about 15 seconds before disappearing in the brush. I told a couple of ladies
about it and checked with them later, but they were unable to find it.
Perhaps it will work its way over to the golf course where they have been
seen in previous years.
The same ladies alerted me to a sleeping gray morph Screech Owl, high up in
a pine. Near the summer stage I had knockout looks at Orange-crowned
Warblers, and (FOY) Magnolia Warbler. In the feeder area 3 Red-headed
Woodpeckers were chasing each other around. I walked down the ravine and saw
a (FOY) bathing Bay-breasted Warbler 10 feet in front of me. It shook itself
off, then flew back in the water for another bath. Further down the ravine a
Northern Parula was also bathing. An Indigo bunting was at one of the
feeders.
I saw Swainson's Thrush and (FOY) Veery.
Even if you don't find what you were looking for, during the month of May
you are bound to find something good!

Subject: [wisb] WHITE-EYED VIREO ~ Lake Park MKE Co. 5/9/19, some images...
Hi all,
started out the day at Lake Park with a impromptu bird walk with some
friends. The fog was so think you could cut it with a knife. A lot of nice
birds were seen but the highlight of the day was the White-eyed Vireo. Jim
Frank was the finder of the bird and he hunted us down at the park to let
us know about it, thank you! It gave brief views at the rusty bridge and
then moved on south. It was birdie on and off. Other nice birds seen were a
Scarlet Tanager and Yellow-throated Vireo along with other birds expected
to see this time of year. Numerous warblers were seen including Magnolia,
Chestnut-sided, Palms, Yellow-rumps, Orange-crowned, Black-and-white,
Nashville, Northern Parula, Cape May, Prothonotary, Pine and American
Redstart. All and all and fun time birding with friends even with the
gloomy weather for a good part of the morning.

A couple images of the White-eyed Vireo at the link below if you care to
view them:

Subject: [wisb] Nesting Trumpeters, Polk County
Hi all,
I am pleased to report that we are again lucky enough to have a pair of Trumpeter Swans nesting on Rainbow Pond. By late yesterday, either or both of them were quite active chasing Canadian geese away from their nest on a muskrat lodge. As of this morning, the pen is finally permanently seated on the nest and if my figures are correct, the Trumpeter Swan incubation period is anywhere from 32 to 37 days. I will certainly update their progress if we are indeed again lucky enough to see them hatch. The past two or three times that we have seen this, it is always difficult to watch the number of cygenets shrink due to predation from turtles, owls, eagles and who knows what else, but every year a few do indeed survive. I certainly cannot help but wonder if one or both members of this current nesting pair were indeed hatched on this pond.

Best birding.

This afternoon the Sandhill Cranes that nest behind our backyard
neighbors' house have debuted the new addition to their family, a
single colt. Last year this pair successfully raised two colts, but
I'm happy to see any at all.This pair returned to our neighborhood on
the same date two years in a row and last year I saw their youngsters
only one day earlier than this year's colt appeared. They certainly
are timely birds.You can see a photo of the pair with their youngster
here:https://flic.kr/p/2erxhhzWe have a pair of Eastern Bluebirds
working on a brood, as well. There were five eggs in the nest box when
I last checked a few days ago.We're enjoying the usual migrants and
lots of Orchard and Baltimore Orioles and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks who
will all be nesting nearby. The grape jelly is already being
devoured.We have had our first Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at the
feeder, too.There are two Soras and one Virginia Rail on the creek in
our backyard, along with a pair of Belted Kingfishers, Green Herons
and Great Blue Herons.We also had our first Broad-winged Hawk sighting
overhead a few days ago and I managed a shot which is also on my
Flickr page.It's not the best place for warblers, but we do see plenty
of them and so many other birds on a regular basis.
Our yard list has grown to 118 species seen in just over two
years.It's been a wonderful place to enjoy all the wildlife that shows
up.Eileen WormanRichfield, Washington County

Subject: [wisb] WESTERN TANAGER
I joined the Bay Beach sanctuary group for their Wed "warbler" walk. Warblers were few and far in-between with only 10 species tallied. The main movement has not reached the Green Bay/Fox Cities area yet. We did have single Veery, Gray-cheeked and Swainson's Thrushes (FOY for many of us) and Blue-headed and Warbling Vireos. However THE HIGHLIGHT occurred later in the walk when the call came that a few birders had found a male WESTERN TANAGER along a trail. The majority of us hurried over and for the next 20+ minutes enjoyed great looks at it up in the trees and then down lower. What a great finish to what has been a strange, very delayed migration so far.

Good evening,
The last two days have been spectacular in Milwaukee, along the lakefront.
On Tuesday, in 3 hours at Grant Park, I had 19 Warbler species, including a
Yellow-throated Warbler! The number of warblers was very good, not just one
here or there. Here is the list seen there.

3 Ovenbird
2 Northern Waterthrush
2 Blue-winged Warbler
6 Black-and-white Warbler
5 Orange-crowned Warbler
15 Nashville Warbler
1 Common Yellowthroat
1 Cape May Warbler
9 Northern Parula
1 Magnolia Warbler
6 Blackburnian Warbler
5 Yellow Warbler
3 Chestnut-sided Warbler
1 Black-throated Blue Warbler
7 Palm Warbler (Western)
3 Pine Warbler
17 Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle)
1 Yellow-throated Warbler
7 Black-throated Green Warbler

Today I started at Grant Park again, and it was still fairly good, with
good numbers, but not nearly as well as Monday evening. I decided to head
north to Warnimont Park. I pulled into the parking lot, stepped out of my
truck and could hear hundreds of birds singing. I don't think I've ever
seen as many warblers in one day, as I did today! I had 23 warbler species,
but the shear numbers were incredible! I ended the day with 94 species
total, but that was walking the entire park from north to south. Here is
the list of warblers from today.

4 Ovenbird
1 Northern Waterthrush
2 Golden-winged Warbler
2 Blue-winged Warbler
17 Black-and-white Warbler
1 Tennessee Warbler
14 Orange-crowned Warbler
31 Nashville Warbler
6 Common Yellowthroat
3 American Redstart
1 Cape May Warbler
2 Cerulean Warbler
15 Northern Parula
2 Magnolia Warbler
10 Blackburnian Warbler
18 Yellow Warbler
4 Chestnut-sided Warbler
1 Blackpoll Warbler
2 Black-throated Blue Warbler
65 Palm Warbler (Western)
12 Pine Warbler
100 Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle)
21 Black-throated Green Warbler

On Saturday one was heard at Wehr Nature Center below the dam. On
Sunday several were seen at Warnimont Park in the tamarack trees on the
bluff. Monday and today (Tuesday), a single bird is being seen in the

Hello Everyone,
While looking for arriving Warblers and Vireos in our backyard, two Purple Finches and a Red-breasted Nuthatch showed up and all three looked quite at home in the mid-day 43'F weather. Not what I was expecting on May 7th, although it is always nice to see these two species. Still no Warblers or Vireos in our yard yet that we were able to see this Spring, although we had a lone Blue-headed Vireo ( used to be called Solitary Vireo and it was by itself ) at a nearby park.

Subject: [wisb] Tuesday birding
I spent a good part of the day covering several spots in this part of the state. High Cliff was quiet except for Yellow-throated and Red-eyed Vireo. Calumet Co park had nothing. Horicon Marsh was rather quiet with only limited shorebird habitat which yielded very little on my first drive along 49. Several hours later there were no shorebirds anywhere.
The I pond is drying up (although the heavy rain forecast for tomorrow could change that) with only a few basic shorebirds. The Jersey pond has grown up making it hard to find any shorebirds. Fortunately a group of peeps took flight and resettled. Among the Least was a Baird's. The A/E ponds had the most shorebirds (number wise) with a Semipalmated Sandpiper and a Wilson's Phalarope being the best. A Cooper's Hawk flushed some of them.

However easily the highlight (for me) of the day was Ziegler Park (Mayville). Finally an actual warbler wave that yielded 11 species. Best were single Bay-br., Blackpoll and Black-thro Blue plus a Philadelphia Vireo. Also had my first Scarlet Tanager and several Rose-br. Grosbeaks.

For the day a total of 94 species.

Wow - so many replies to the tufted titmouse! For those looking, I was at
the roadway (as opposed to foot) bridge near picnic area 6 at Whitnall.
Happy birding

What an eventful morning at our bird feeder, the best we've had in quite
some time.
Here is a listing of birds sighted in about 1/2 hour (caused both Eileen
and I to be late for work!):

European Starling (5)
Common Grackle (2)
Brown-headed Cowbirds (2)
Blue Jay
American Goldfinches (6)
Black-capped Chickadees (4)
House Finches (5)
Northern Cardinals (3)
White-crowned Sparrow (FOY at our feeder!!!)
Red-breasted Nuthatches (2)
White-breasted Nuthatches (2)
Baltimore Orioles (3)
Downy Woodpeckers (2)
Red-bellied Woodpeckers (2)
Hairy Woodpecker (has been visiting our peanut feeder for three weeks,
after an almost two year absence)

What an amazing way to start the day! The only "downer" was the absence of
a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. We had one visit our feeder at least four times
on Friday afternoon/early evening. We have not seen it since. This
happened several years ago, and the around May 11 we had several stick
around for about a week. Hope we get a chance to see one again on our
feeders.

Good birding to all!

Subject: [wisb] Re: Hooded Warbler and others, Milwaukee
For the first time in years, I actually viewed instead of heard only a male
Hooded Warbler mid-afternoon today. I was birding along the Nojoshing Trail
in St Francis.
It was moving around a lot, at times flaring out its tail. It also flicked
its tail numerous times. I lost sight of it right before a local
sharp-shinned hawk flew in and scattered the warblers.

At Wilson Park, I had another great day. I had three Pine Warblers, one
Golden-winged warbler, two Black-throated Green warblers, at least five
Black-and-white warblers, two Nashville warblers, three Yellow warblers,
two Ovenbirds, Blue headed and possible Philadelphia vireos, Veery, Great
crested flycatcher and Gray cheeked thrush. The cool thing was that the
groups of warblers were in pairs and low on the ground. Views were still
challenging due to the poor visibility today and the birds' high energy
levels, but I had a really great time there.

Earlier, I had great looks at a Sedge Wren from the bluff behind the lagoon
at Sheridan Park and had first of year Cape May Warbler. The Sparrows were
bananas all along the bluff, and across the road, they were all over
people's lawns and on roofs. A great day.

Subject: [wisb] Cape May and other warblers at Whitnall Park MKE Co. 5/6/19, some images...
Hi all,
One of my birding stops today was for warblers at Whitnall Park. Earlier
birding in the rain along the lakefront produced very little to brag about.
Lake Park had nice views of White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows
everywhere, along with a split-second glimpse of a beautiful Ovenbird. The
rain was just letting up as I headed west and the stop at Whitnall Park
produced views of a stunning Cap May Warbler. Other warblers present,
Yellow, Chestnut-sided, Yellow-rumps, Common Yellowthroat, Palm. Other
warblers that made very brief appearances were the American Redstart,
Black-throated Blue, Black-and-white, not even long enough to get the
camera on them. Very many Ruby-crowned Kinglets were also present. Always
exciting to see new warblers as they start coming though the area. A rainy
morning to start but then cloudy skies which was great. Temps chilly to
start but warmed up nicely.

A link below to some of the warbler images from today if you care to view
them:

While I found my first singing male Hooded on Saturday 5/4 in Waukesha Co,
a rare weekday off allowed me to tick them off today in both Jefferson and
Walworth too.
As an aside, the Hooded's are interesting, because they clearly overshot
their core southern breeding area this Spring and were observed 23 - 26
April in Milwaukee (stopover site), La Crosse and Marathon (!) counties.
Other goodies this morning were SCARLET TANAGER (Jefferson) and a small but

CHESTNUT-SIDED, BLUE- & GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLERS and AMERICAN REDSTART.

birded most of yesterday but did not have near as good a day as others -

I've only seem them in fall before this. Blue-headed vireos, yellow

We were part of the NRF-sponsored Birding Blitz at Horicon yesterday, ably led by Liz Herzmann and Jeff Bahls. Because of the late migration, everyone was a bit concerned that it might be kind of quiet. It started fine, but got better and better as the day progressed. We ended the day with a little over 90 species. Things should be ideal for the Festival this weekend.

Recent arrivals included:
Baltimore Oriole
Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Blue-headed Vireo
Warbling Vireo
Common Yellowthroat
Blackburnian Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Palm Warbler
Yellow Warblers (several of which we tried to turn into Prothonotary Warblers because they were so bright)
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Gray Catbird
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
Black Tern
Eastern Kingbird

Sparrows seen:
Chipping
Henslow's
Song
Swamp
Vesper
White-crowned
White-throated
(and House)

Many, many others. Heard lots of Sora and one Virginia Rail, but couldn't coax any out into the open. As we wrapped up in the parking lot, we finally heard a Bluebird.

Subject: [wisb] Madison School Forest (Dane Co.) today
Chuck Henrikson and I (ably assisted by Pat Ready) led a Madison Audubon field trip to the Madison School Forest southwest of Verona this morning.  About a dozen early rising birders joined us for a walk through the open woods.  Chuck kept the list, and I believe we got to 42 species, counting the flyover Baltimore Oriole as the last few of us were standing around yakking in the parking lot off Fritz Rd.  
Highlights were Red-headed WP, Blue-winged Warbler, Ovenbird, Am. Redstart, Blue-headed Vireo, a very vocal Yellow-throated Vireo by the parking lot, and heard-only Wood Thrush (Chuck had gotten there at 5:30 a.m. and said they were singing quite a bit at that hour.)  Pat saw a Pine Warbler in the conifer stand, but we couldn't track it down.  We also flushed a large owl (likely Barred) in that area.  

Thanks to all who showed up on a lovely morning!

Subject: [wisb] Lake Park in Milwaukee today 5/5
The first thing I noticed when I arrived this morning is that Palm Warblers
had arrived in a big way. Among them and with many Yellow-rumped Warblers
was a Blue-headed Vireo. Near the Wolcott Statue was a Black and White
Warbler. When I walked up to the golf course I noticed Jym Mooney and 2
others concentrating at length on the grove of pines at the north edge of
the golf course. Thinking that these pines might be hosting warblers as they
frequently do, I wandered over there and Jym alerted me to a very
cooperative Le Conte's Sparrow, easily the best bird of the day. Later on
after everybody had left, I noticed the Le Conte's was wandering from one
clump of evergreens to another on the golf course.
After we had great looks at the Le Conte's, Jym mentioned that a Blue-winged
Warbler was singing behind us. Since that is one of the many birds I can't
hear, I rushed over to where Jym was hearing the bird, and Jym and the other
birders went with me. One of the other gentlemen quickly spotted the bird
and we all had decent looks.
I then slogged through the mud in the north lighthouse ravine trail and saw
Yellow Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, and Louisiana Waterthrush. The south
lighthouse ravine was much easier to navigate with no mud, but there was
nothing exciting there.
My hope for the day, which by now had been going quite well, was to see a
Red-headed Woodpecker, so I went over to the Locust Ravine feeder area and
eventually saw it. Warbler variety was good, with Northern Waterthrush,
Nashville Warbler, American Redstart, Blackburnian Warbler, and many more
Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers.
I had a brief look at a Least Flycatcher, but a much better look at one in
lower Lake Park inside the hedgerow bordering the water treatment plant.
Jennifer Ambrose predicted we would see new birds today, and with 9 (FOY)
species for me, I am happy to say she was correct!

Subject: [wisb] Lake Maria/White River Marsh/Comstock Bog Saturday
Thanks to Ryan Brady extending the second Owl Survey period through today, I was able to wait for ideal weather and make the second run on the Princeton survey route last night.  I got an early start yesterday afternoon and stopped at Lake Maria in Green Lake Co.  Picked up 34 species in the 45 minutes I was there.  Best was a Common Tern that was keeping separate from the flock of noisy Forster's Terns that were working the lake.  
From there, I stopped in Princeton to pick up a sub sandwich to eat later, then headed for the White River Marsh.  Even though it was still two hours before sunset, many American Bitterns were pumping away, a pair of Barred Owls were duetting, and Soras were calling from every marshy area.  I heard a Virginia Rail grunt from the marsh next to the bridge over the White River, and later heard several "kiddick"-ing in the large marsh at the east end before the big woods.  I also heard my FOY Common Yellowthroats and Sedge Wrens there.  I went back west to County D at sunset and still had a half-hour to kill, so I drove out the road into the marsh that goes north from where D curves to the west.  Had another Am. Bittern pumping out off the end of that road.

My route starts at the curve on D and goes west into Marquette Co.  Things were quiet for the first five stops, but starting at stop #6 through the end of the route (10 stops total,) I had at least one Barred Owl at each of the last five stops.  Stop #9 was especially productive, with at least four (and possibly a fifth - hard to keep track through each of five one-minute listening periods) Barred Owls calling back and forth.  In the fifth minute, a Saw-whet Owl did a short "toot" series.  That was only the second one I've had on this survey route (and the other was just last year, at the stop a mile before this one. Similar habitat - conifer stands interspersed with wetlands.)  Slightly surprising was not hearing any coyotes this time.  Frogs (Chorus, Spring Peepers, American Toads and a few Gray Tree Frogs) made it a challenge to hear at a few stops.

To cap off the night, since I was going right past it, I pulled into the small parking lot off Hwy 22 on the west side of Comstock Bog SNA.  Even though I've never heard a Yellow Rail from that spot, it was a calm night with almost no traffic on 22, so I figured it was worth a shot.  I hadn't even gotten all the way out of the car and could hear at least two, and maybe three, Yellow Rails ticking away, very close to the edge of the bog.  Didn't even have to cup my ears like I usually have to do to hear them from the east side on Edgewood Rd.  The thrill from that, plus the many deer along Hwy 22, plus listening to the epic Brewers victory in 18 innings on the radio kept me awake on the way back home.  Got to bed a minute after midnight (and had to get up early to lead a field trip this morning at 7:00.)

It hung out calling/singing both north and south of the road. At time would sit a couple of feet away in the shrubs easily visible out in the open, white eyes very conspicuous.

I see my post below this never went through.  Just FYI for those other subscribers with .edu email addresses, for some reason the Freelists servers and our email servers are not playing well together.  My posts frequently don't go through at all, and I can only send one per day to Wisbirdn (max.)  I also noticed that all of those addresses now seem to be categorized as "dmarc-noreply", so no one can reply directly to the senders. I'm giving up and using my att.net address from now on, even though it occasionally formats weirdly.



I know we're also having difficulties with folks using Android phones, at least from certain carriers.  Keep in mind, Freelists is just that - free.  That's why they host hundreds of listservs, with the difficulties and problems that can entail.  Wisbirdn listowner Tom Sykes, who still does the back-end technical stuff that is beyond me, has looked for alternatives, but Freelists remains the best choice for the moment, so bear with us.

Subject: Nine Springs (Dane Co.) tonight 
I led about 20 birders on the annual Friday evening Madison Audubon field trip to Nine Springs tonight.  With the late migration this year, I was pleased that we managed to eke out 40 species.  Only two warbler species (Yellow and Yellow-rump) and four shorebirds (Killdeer, Spotted SP, a lone Greater Yellowlegs, and a Woodcock.)  Ducks included Wood, BW Teal, Ring-necked, Canvasback, Lesser Scaup and Gadwall (plus Mallard, of course.)  Highlight was at least five Soras calling and several of them wandering around out in the open area where the cattails were burned in the second impoundment.




Charles Naeseth pointed out a peenting American Woodcock as we were getting back to the parking lot.  It sounded nearby, so the remainder of the group walked out a bit into the E-way to listen.  It finally took off to display over our heads, then plummeted to a landing in the area of low grass in the shrubby area just east of the parking lot.  We tried to get closer for a look, but it buzzed off, giving everyone a good look.  Nice ending to a lovely Spring evening.  Thanks to Charles and Ellen Hansen for spotting.

Subject: [wisb] Fw: Upcoming Madison Audubon field trips

 It's getting to be that time of year.  Last Thursday began our weekday Warbler Walks series, weather permitting.  All our field trips are subject to change or cancellation in the event of heavy rain or especially thunderstorms in the area.  Light rain showers aren't usually a problem, and can make for good birding if it stops raining shortly before or after the trip starts.  Use your best judgement, and dress appropriately for the weather.  We'll try to post advance notice on the website/Facebook if a trip is going to be rescheduled. 

For details on all our trips, see the MAS website:  https://madisonaudubon.org
For the majority of our trips, you do not need to be a member to attend, and there is no need to register ahead of time for most of them - just show up at the scheduled time and place.  Beginning birders are always welcome.

For those unaware, if you go to Mueller Road to see the Common Gallinule, there are to other good shorebird spots nearby.



Just north of Mueller Road are the HWY V & C PONDS. On Wednesday there were Yellowlegs with DUNLIN and a WILSON'S PHALAROPE.




Then about a mile north of there, at the Columbia Co boarder, is a pond I will call the COUNTY C at JOHNSON ROAD POND. (the short road to a farm house is Johnson Road)

This distant pond from the road really needs a scope for good views. Wednesday there was an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER with Yellowlegs and a few peeps.




One other pond, a short distance north, probably less known, is West of Cty C on Cty DM. The pond is about a mile west of the C & DM intersection. Yesterday there were only Yellowlegs seen but in past years other interesting birds were there.

In it I summarize trends in sightings, provide a recap of rarities, and forecast what to expect in the week ahead, including which days are likely to feature new arrivals or active migration conditions. And usually there's a pretty photo or two as well!

Here is the birdcast link. Tonight looks promising. http://birdcast.info/
We should have some new birds tomorrow.
In the Milwaukee area today, it was somewhat slow overall for the time of
year, but my group of birding friends and I all had between several first
of year sightings.

Grosbeaks, Orioles, and a few warbler species like Nashville, black and
white, and black throated green showed up, as well as white crowned,
Lincoln's and clay colored Sparrows. White-throated sparrows were in huge
numbers and they always precede warblers.

Bill makes a great point though. When we're not out birding, we need to
work to help the birds we enjoy so much.

Thanks for this post. I have been checking birdcast every day for the past
week hoping for some movement (as I imagine many of you are) - and yes, the
birds seem stuck in Tennessee! Though 2 nights ago, it seemed the birds
got tired of waiting and moved west and east around Illinois and WI to keep
moving. Crazy enough - one day last week (week before?) the birds actually
moved South - out of WI!
We all wait patiently - or maybe not so patient . .

What's a birder to do?

From: Bill Volkert <billvolkert11...>
Subject: [wisb] Waiting for the Spring Migration
I am sure all of us are somewhat frustrated by the slow progress of the
migration this spring. We keep waiting for the birds to arrive while they
are being held back by the persistent cool damp weather and northerly
winds. I have heard the comment that perhaps they have already overshot
southern Wisconsin, but I have not heard about an abundance of warblers and
other songbirds being sighted in the north. I believe that at this point
they are still stalled out south of us and hopefully the winds will change
soon enough to advance the migration.
If the birds are held back for another week to ten days then I would
suspect that they may fly over the southern part of the state in a rush to
arrive on their nesting grounds, but at this time it seems that they should
arrive with the next warm front. According to the latest weather forecast
that could happen overnight.

But the emptiness in the woods is somewhat disconcerting while I search for
signs of spring and remain disappointed that the birds I would expect to be
seeing at this time of the season haven't yet arrived. The progress of the
season has been delayed and so we remain behind schedule. I try to remain
patient as I wait for their arrival but the lack of warblers and other
songbirds makes the woods seem rather quiet.

I know they will come soon and hope that either the leaves don't open so
quickly to hide them from view or delay them much longer and cause them to
overshoot my location. But this current lack of birds gives me pause to
reflect on the declines of many bird populations and the changes we bring
that result in these losses. All this makes me think of a potentially dark
future and makes me ask, what if they never came? What kind of world would
we find ourselves in if there was no migration? While others may not miss
what they never knew existed, those of us who have enjoyed the many kinds
of birds that return with each spring would know the loss. So I ask myself
how did others feel who actually had the opportunity to see the waves of
passenger pigeons when they no longer came? To imagine a world without
birds should be cause enough to protect them while we still can.

From: Tom Wood <tcwood729...>
Subject: [wisb] Ozaukee County today 5/3
I started at Lion's Den Gorge this morning and most of what I was seeing has
been around for a while until I came across Joan S. and her friend who I
think she called Jean.
Joan is a bird magician! As I spotted her, a Northern Waterthrush started
singing and I could hear the beautiful song of a Wood Thrush. While we were
listening, Joan pished a little and suddenly Orange-crowned Warbler
appeared, followed by Yellow Warbler and many Yellow-rumped Warblers. The
ladies went to the gorge to look for a Louisiana Waterthrush (which I
learned from Elaine V. later on they found) and I searched some of the side
trails, adding Black-and-White Warbler and a couple of Nashville Warblers.
As is normal for this preserve, Brown Thrashers and Eastern Towhees are very
easy to find, and today Ruby-crowned Kinglets were numerous. There were a
lot of birds flying north far out on the lake, and I think many may have
been Common Terns, but I did not have my scope with me on this walk.
After lunch, I went to Virmond Park since it is probably the best spot in
southeast Wisconsin to see Red-necked Grebes. I thought at this late date I
might see one or two, but was astonished to count 43, most in rafts with
Horned Grebes, but a few singles scattered around the lake. There were many
Red-breasted Mergansers and large rafts of Bonaparte's Gulls. I suspect
there was a lot more to see out there, but I wasn't prepared for how chilly
it was with a northeast breeze.

Subject: [wisb] Horicon Marsh
I spent the morning checking out the Horicon Marsh area. Next Friday the Horicon Marsh Festival starts and it had better change by then or the birders on the bus trip may ask for a refund. Water levels are up along 49 although there is some shorebird habitat but it is decreasing. The usual shorebirds were found with the B-n Stilts outnumbering all the other shorebirds easily. I finally located the Long-billed Dowitcher that had been seen occasionally this week. Also present was a Solitary Sandpiper. The I pond had 60 yellowlegs (both) plus a Spotted Sandpiper. (When I returned 3 hours later there were only 2 yellowlegs.)
The Northern Woods road was again very quiet as was Ziegler Park---no warblers, vireos, kinglets, etc. (So far this spring I have seen a total of 7 warblers---6 Myrtles, and a Black-throated Green. This is the poorest start for me in years, may be ever. What a strange migration so far.

The Jersey/Breezy Pt pond is rapidly decreasing but there were both yellowlegs, 8 Short-billed Dowitchers and 4 Least Sandpipers scattered amongst the stalks.

Hi everyone,
I appreciate your time and comments especially since the photos are grainy
and don't show many angles. Jym Mooney was just back in the location and
thinks one is a Long-billed. I am going to head down there shortly and try
to capture some better images to share. Again, thanks!!

I like this page for dowitcher ID:
https://www.surfbirds.com/ID%20Articles/dowitchers1005/dowitchers.html . It
focuses on structure rather than plumage; plumage varies geographically as
well as with time of year, and I'm always hesitant to assume that I'm
looking at the expected subspecies or that birds are guaranteed to be in
full adult breeding plumage.
Detailed looks are needed and I like to try to clinch 2 field marks for a
definitive ID, but what I can see of the "supraloral angle" on your first
bird seems to suggest Long-billed. Bill shape and primary projection are
the other two marks I tend to use, but I'm not sure about those in your
photos.

Subject: [wisb] Upcoming Madison Audubon field trips
It's getting to be that time of year. Tomorrow begins our weekday Warbler Walks series, weather permitting. All our field trips are subject to change or cancellation in the event of heavy rain or especially thunderstorms in the area. Light rain showers aren't usually a problem, and can make for good birding if it stops raining shortly before or after the trip starts. Use your best judgement, and dress appropriately for the weather. We'll try to post advance notice on the website/Facebook if a trip is going to be rescheduled. We are hopeful that the Turville Point walk tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 6:00 a.m. will be able to go on as scheduled. Quentin and Marty plan to show up.

For details on all our trips, see the MAS website: https://madisonaudubon.org/

For the majority of our trips, you do not need to be a member to attend, and there is no need to register ahead of time for most of them - just show up at the scheduled time and place. Beginning birders are always welcome.

Subject: [wisb] Grant Park (Milwaukee County) this afternoon 5/1
After enjoying the birds at Lakeshore State Park this morning, I went to
Grant Park and saw at least 65 Willets there near the yacht club. It was
hilarious to see the Willets walking on the grass near the fake canine which
I assume is placed there to scare away birds- not doing the job.
Also of interest were a single Forster's Tern and a Common Tern on the beach

People who bird Grant Park should be very thankful for the wonderful feeding
station set up by Betsy Abert and kept well filled by her and other birders.
Nothing rare was there today, but it was hard to pull myself away from a
dozen White-throated Sparrows, a pair of Eastern Towhees, Brown Thrasher, a
female Purple Finch, both Nuthatches and others. Since the last Dark-eyed
Junco to visit my unit seems to have departed a couple of days ago, I
thought they were gone, but one was at the feeder area in Grant Park.
I was able to find 8 Yellow-rumped Warblers, all in the Wil-O-Way area.

Subject: [wisb] American Avocets, Willets and a Marbled Godwit at Lakeshore State Park MKE Co. 5/1/19, some images...
Hi all,
My first birding stop this morning was Lakeshore State Park. I having been
hitting it regularly the last few weeks waiting for the American Avocets.
This morning was the day as 14 were present when I arrived. A few minutes
later 24 Willets showed up and a while later another ~35 showed up. It was
exciting to see this species again. Last year May 5, was the day they
showed up at this park. Very skittish they were as when a person walking by
the beach area at the park, the American Avocets flushed and landed in the
lagoon in a very tight group. It seemed that after about 15-20 minutes they
worked their way back to the beach area and hung out with the Willets,
sometimes by themselves too. A Marbled Godwit was found in the group of
Willets on the beach by Jennifer A later on. The bird may have just joined
the group on one of the flushes. All the birds were flushed many times
while I was there but by pedestrians not knowing what was going on, it was
all innocent. Weather was not great as there was a mist coming down for at
least the first hour I was there. On and off it was very cold out there on
the island park. Stunning birds regardless! It was a fun time with friend
birders and photographers that showed while I was there.

Images of these stunning birds we only see a couple times a year if lucky
at the link below:

Nice group of birds. Sounds like the same type of grouping we had here 2 years ago at this time. The cool drizzle seems to ground them along the shoreline. Great Willet and avocet weather!

For all southeast WI birders I will compile the annual Milwaukee and Ozaukee May Count on Saturday May 11th. Post your sightings on ebird as always and I can gather totals from there.

Good birding to all

With the cool rainy weather and mostly north winds the migration has slowed
down recently. I am sure we are all waiting for better weather and the
arrival of more migrants, but in case you are sitting indoors or in your
car tomorrow rather than out birding you may want to listen in or even call
in to Wisconsin Public Radio.
I will be on with Larry Meiller from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm to talk about
birds as I have been doing for the past 30 years (13 of those with Noel
Cutright). We take calls from all around the state and would enjoy having
birders add to the conversation.

After hearing that there were a couple of AMERICAN AVOCETS being seen at
Horicon Marsh I decided to take a long lunch break. I made a quick trip
over there and met Kerry Sehloff parked along the shoulder with the birds
already staked for me. She also pointed me in the direction of a WILSON’S
PHALAROPE too. Thanks Kerry, it’s nice to have eyes on the spot when time
is limited.
Heading east from the historical marker I continued to bird the north side
of the road. The numbers of shorebirds were considerably less then this
past weekend but a fairly good variety for April. I was able to relocated
the LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER I found on Sunday but this time it was closer to
the road. I then scanned the opposite shore where I found 2
SHORT-DOWITCHERS feeding just off shore.

Continuing on to the east pond I found 3 PECTORAL SANDPAPERS but no other
shorebirds of note. There are still good numbers of both yellowleg species
and several Black-necked Stilts.

This area will continue to very interesting birding in the next few weeks
when more migrants are moving through.

After reading the post of the 2 Avocets at Horicon Marsh this morning, I hurried down to look for them. It took me a few minutes but soon they emerged from the mud along the west side of the north pond. After enjoying them with other birders I checked out the I pond off 49. Bingo! There were more shorebirds on this pond then the entire north pond in the marsh. Tops were 24 Willtets, a female Wilson's Phalarope, plus both yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpiper and Killdeer. After enjoying this sight I returned to the historic sign area of the north pond and really enjoyed the avocets in close plus another female Wilson's Phalarope with just a few yellowlegs and a single Pectoral. The B-n Stilts along the north pond numbered 12-15. Gosh, the cold, damp, dreary weather did not seem so bad this p.m.!

Glad you posted your lack of findings Daryl! Sure seems to me as though
sometimes our impressions of migration can be skewed by the tendency to
post only favorable FOY reports.
For my part, I had the same experience down here in the SE and added no new
species for the past several days (quite unusual at this point in the
season). Yellow-rumps were practically nonexistent - possibly having moved
north when that winter storm approached this past weekend?
Looking forward to the better days we know ARE on their way :-)

Subject: [wisb] Briefly back in Wisconsin
Carol and I are back in Wisconsin for a few months, just in time for Spring migration. Looking forward to to fleshing out our annual list with eastern species we’ve not seen for a while. A little over a year ago we finally settled in Sierra Vista, in southeast AZ, arguably the second best birding area in the U.S. following nearly ten years of our nomadic lifestyle.

Looking forward to bumping into WI birding friends (and yes, we’ve already had a few visit us in Sierra Vista!).

Cheers,
Tom and Carol

Subject: [wisb] Birding Trip to Thailand
Hello Everyone,
I have put together a fantastic trip exploring the north and central
portions of Thailand. For those that have never been to this part of the
world, Thailand is a wonderful place to start birding in Asia. With over
1,000 species of birds, 282 mammals species (92 are bats), 4 species of sea
turtles, over 1,300 varieties of orchids, 1200 butterfly species, 200
species of hawk moths, 405 species of reptiles and amphibians, 3 apes
(gibbons), 9 monkey species (langurs and macaques), and 25,000 vascular
plants, including 12,000 flowering plants, we’ll have no shortage of nature
to explore.

If interested in seeing the itinerary and other details regarding this
adventure, please contact me at <sharpbill...> or 214 980 3103. Many
thanks to Tom and Peter for allowing me to share this opportunity.

Cheers, Mickey

Subject: [wisb] Bonaparte's Gulls
I spent some time at the South Metro pier yesterday morning. The wind was strong and the waves were so high that there was very little beach to walk on. The number of Bonaparte's gulls was amazing. I cannot begin to guess how many but there were thousands. most were well out in the lake , but a good number were feeding in the waves near shore. They were fun to watch as they were fighting the wind. From a photography stand point the wind and light were against each other but it sure was fun trying to get images as the wind really pushed them around. Also seen were the first mallard ducklings of the season in the area behind the beach. I have attached a link to some images from the day if you care to view them.

Greetings all,
I spent a short time at Terry Andrae this p.m. and through the mist and
drizzle was thrilled to find a Virginia Rail. It was just off the bridge in
the reeds on Old Park Road. It was on the south side of the bridge. A very
exciting find for me! A Kingfisher was also in the neighborhood.
Great birding all,

Subject: [wisb] Brooklyn SWA, Smith's


I had taken the week off, so I would have time to poke around for Smith’s. Yesterday, with the snow, was a bust. Today, after it rained all night, I went to see if longspurs came back in. It’s very soft out there now. I walked the wet mushy stuff for a 1 ½ hours and saw 250 Lapland’s and no buffy ones. I walked up into the relatively dry cut soybean field and 1 male Smith’s got up close to me. I watched and it landed back in the cut field. I walked over and got good looks. This male had lighter underpart. They were more of a yellow -orange tone. Definitely a different male than I saw Thursday, and that photos were taken of. I went back and walked the rest of the cut field, and that was the only longspur. When I left, around 12:30, it was 80 yards straight out from the rocks over the creek.

Subject: [wisb] Horicon and Lone Elm Rd. today
Pat Ready and I, after walking the Bellbrook Rd. field with Steve and the other birders this morning, headed up to Horicon Marsh. We also missed the ibis, but saw numerous Black-necked Stilts, all on the north (Fond du Lac Co.) side of Hwy 49. On the Auto Loop, in the marsh across the road from the last pond, there was an American Bittern "pumping" very close to the road, along with a couple of Soras. A Marsh Wren was also singing.

Back on 49, we saw numerous birders on the north side. It turned out to be much of the WSO Board, who had been at their meeting down at the Education Center on Hwy 28. They told us about the reported Marbled Godwit, although no one had found it yet. I finally spotted it way in the back, north of the historical marker. We eventually got everyone on it. Tom Schultz also told us about the Long-billed Dowitcher further east, which was easily seen. We also saw the two Common Gallinules east of the pumphouse.


Pat and I decided to head up to Lone Elm Rd. (the Fond du Lac/Winnebago Co. line.) We stopped at the boat launch behind Wendt's restaurant to scope the island, and spotted at least five Black-crowned Night Herons in with all the Great Egrets, White Pelicans, and DC Cormorants. On Lone Elm Rd., we finally found one Cattle Egret in the yard of a house at the intersection with Van Dyne Rd.


It was a long, but interesting day of birding. I personally picked up at least two dozen "year" birds among all the various places.

From: Tom Wood <tcwood729...>
Subject: [wisb] Horicon NWR today, 4/28(Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties)
When I arrived at 8:25 A.M., there were Black-necked Stilts and a
Long-billed Dowitcher on the Fond du Lac County side of STH49 near the west
edge of the large pond across the road from the pumphouse. I spotted Marilyn
B. and Mike W. and when I stopped to say hello, I asked them about the
dowitcher. Both agreed it was a Long-billed Dowitcher, and since I have
difficulty identifying dowitchers, I was glad that everybody agreed on the
species. This bird seemed well-marked and was close to the road, but I felt
more confident after getting the opinions of two excellent birders. Also on
the Fond du Lac side there was a nice flock of Bonaparte's Gulls, 2 Caspian
Terns, at one point 6 Forster's Terns, Pectoral Sandpipers, and both
yellowlegs. Lots of Green-winged Teal are continuing.
Highlights along the autotour were an Osprey which soared over the first
pond on the route, 3 Trumpeter Swans (one on a nest in the aforementioned
pond), and heard-only Virginia Rails and Soras.
Before they left, Mike and Marilyn found a Marbled Godwit just before noon,
and Mike was very helpful in describing the location of the bird on the
north side of STH 49, on a spit on the west edge of the pond on the opposite
side of the road from the pumphouse, and about 300 yards out. I was able to
observe it for about 20 minutes. It then flew but I was unable to track it.
Perhaps it went back into the cattails and will later make an appearance for
other birders. Thanks, Mike and Marilyn!
Just after the godwit left, another birder stopped by and inquired about The
White-faced Ibis, which to the best of my knowledge was not seen today. This
birder shared that he had seen 2 Common Gallinules and a Yellow-headed
Blackbird on the south (Dodge County) side, east of the pumphouse pond. I
missed them at first, but after a lunch break I came back, and the
Yellow-headed Blackbird was up and singing and the two Common Gallinules
were out in the open, feeding.
My last exciting moment was when I heard a Virginia Rail constantly calling
next to the road (Fond du Lac County side). I parked and waited and it
eventually came into view, almost at the shoulder of the road.

Hi all,
While birding at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center I came a across a couple
of hard working Black-capped Chickadees. They were taking turns excavating
a nest hole in a dead tree along a path. They would chip away in the nest
hole and then take a bill full of wood pieces from inside the hole carry
them to a nearby branch and let them fall. I watched them from a distance
for about 3-4 minutes. It was a beautiful morning out birding!

I joined local birders for the Bay Beach Sanctuary morning walk. It was cold---mid 30s with a little sun for a short while. We found several Myrtle Warblers, Ruby-cr. Kinglets, and single black-throated Green Warbler and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. Then the sun disappeared and we discovered that the majority of the sanctuary gates had not been opened so we had to terminate the walk.
On the way home I checked the Shiocton area. Water had decreased in some fields but generally was still overall high. A few shorebirds (yellowlegs and Pecs) were seen along with a variety of ducks and a pair of Trumpeter Swans plus 2 Ravens.

Jennifer Rutten and I observed a summer tanager this morning near boardwalk pond at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. Large bill and colorful yellow/orangish underparts as it perched above us briefly. Others were unable to relocate the bird.

Subject: [wisb] Northern Shoveler Fox River Waukesha Co 4/25/19, some images...
Hi all,
One of my last birding stops today was the Fox River in Waukesha. I check
it almost daily in case something new has showed up. Today a male Northern
Shoveler was the treat giving nice views. It hung around with a couple of
Mallards and fed once in awhile along the shoreline of the river. What a
beautiful duck! It was a gorgeous day with mostly sunny skies, little wind
and a pleasant temperature.

A link to the images of the Northern Shoveler from today if you care to
view them:

Tom & all,
Tonight I stopped by that location and had 8 Cattle Egrets. Two on the east side of the house and 6 on the west side.
Fortunately, as a Fond du Lac County lister, they we’re on the south side of Lone Elm Rd. The north side is Winnebago County. I’ve often had better luck finding them just north of Lone Elm along Hwy. 45 (Winnebago Co. ).

Subject: [wisb] Smith's Longspurs, Dane County

Found the 3 Smith’s (good looks) out at Brooklyn SWA. Same area as 3 I’ve had bad looks at twice before. Called some birders and I walked back out ,with them. We had 4 flying a couple times and when I left, Shawn Miller had spotted them on the ground. Just had a call, and they got great looks of a male. Ellen Hanson had a couple, which may have been different.
This is on the north side of Bellbrook Road. There’s a parking area on the north side, and a grass road that goes back a ¼ mile. From the end of it there’s a back field, which is DNR land, the Smith’s were in the east central area. That area has mostly flattened foxtail like grasses. The whole area looks good. Right now, it’s not muddy. And just for fun, there’s 300+ Lapland’s.

Up in northern Door County we are finally seeing some numbers of spring arrivals including of course the redwings and grackles. Today I had a palm warbler, female rose-breasted grosbeak and a white-throated sparrow. Bluebirds have been back and are singing plus the turkeys are in full bloom. We have a couple of big males who display and then attack our patio doors. Gives the dogs a feeling of accomplishment when they drive them off with their barking.

I heard a House Wren yesterday morning when I stepped outside to get the paper at about 5:45 a.m. This morning, on the way to the bus stop, I heard at least three different House Wrens in the neighborhood. Crows are nesting on my block, too - oddly enough, directly across the street from where the Cooper's Hawks nested last year. That hardly seems like a coincidence.

I've been watching for Chimney Swifts on the UW campus, but haven't seen any yet.

Subject: [wisb] Bird Walk at Sensiba Marsh tomorrow (Brown County)
Spring Bird Walk at Sensiba Marsh in Suamico on Friday, April 26th, 2019.

Did you know that the Red-Winged Blackbird has a colorful first cousin?
Sensiba Marsh on the West Shores of Green Bay in Suamico is one of the few places you can find the Yellow-Headed Blackbird. Take a leisurely walk with Bill & Sarah Krouse along the edges of the marsh to see this sentinel of spring, along with many other birds that call Sensiba Marsh home. Bill and his wife Sarah live in Suamico, but have birded all over the Midwest. Their programs are geared towards adults, both beginner and more experienced. We will talk about the history & ecology of the marsh and the birds & wildlife that call it home, as well as some of our migrating feathered friends. Sensiba Marsh is just one of the jewels that we hope will soon make Suamico a Bird City USA!

7 am on Friday morning, April 26th, we will meet at Sunset Beach Park on Sunset Beach Lane.

From Hwy 41, just follow County B towards the Bay (East) until it ends. We will walk the easy gravel trails on top of the dike on the perimeter of the marsh to look for spring birds. From blackbirds to waterfowl, to passerines, to raptors, to wading and shorebirds, we will see what is moving along the shoreline and in the marsh during this peak of spring migration. And we will see all of the birds dressed up with bright colors to attract mates and begin their nesting process.
Dress for the weather including comfortable walking shoes and bring some water to drink. If you do not have binoculars and a field guide, we can help you out. This program is free to the public and all are welcome.
Call with questions at (920) 434-2212 Suamico Park & Rec or (920) 621-6222 Bill.
