Good evening,
As previously reported already today, Lorri and I also saw the bird from
1230-120. It was within view basically the entire time, going behind the
house a few times, only briefly. We were able to get very good, close looks
in the bright sun. Images are available at the link below, if you are
interested.

Hello Birders, A chilly morning & almost 4 hour drive in the fog
then after waiting almost two hours that sweet little guy flew out
& about when it had warmed at NOON before we saw him!
He seemed to prefer the crab apple tree and close by it & did
eat some fruit & also hopefully a few bugs as we did see a few
of them flying around.

State bird for myself but a lifer for Curt E. & a half dozen others
who were thrilled & taking photos like crazy!

Thanks to all who posted to me & keep others in the loop.

Good Luck to those who still are heading out for it.

Doing a few chores in the backyard at 3:00, we were surprised when a
Sharp-shinned Hawk zipped past and landed in a nearby tree. After resting a
bit, it flew off to the west. A little later we happened to look up at our
tall old spruce tree... and there was "our" Merlin, perched on the very top,
surveying the neighborhood and keeping an eye on us. We were surprised to
see it, since they hadn't been around for a couple months. It stayed for 15
minutes and then zipped off to the north...

9 Long-tailed ducks still present in front of the Memorial Union, accompanied by hundreds of common mergansers carefully eyed by ring-billed gulls trying to poach their food and a smaller number of common goldeneyes on a perfectly still lake.

Still present at 2:30 PM for myself and Bill Grossmeyer.
First seen along the backside of the house in the shadows working the hedgerow of stuff behind the barbed wire. Eventually, it came out in the sunny area between the shed and the house. There are a decent amount of flies and other bugs on the house siding and other areas.

Noon to 1PM today
The Hammonds flycatcher had just appeared 30sec before I arrived and stayed around the whole time, catching insects, preening and being very photogenic on a beautiful sunny day. To make the day even more perfect, a golden eagle flew overhead as we were watching the flycatcher. 2 lifers! The flycatcher was still around when I left.
Great meeting the birders there.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Hammond's FC??
Hello Joan. Yes, the Hammond's is still there, and is clearly feeding(
on something) and appears healthy and active. Based on previous posts
and my experience today I would say this bird is going to be in this
location for a while if not substantially longer. While it is a long
trip from Green Bay I would say it is definitely worth it. When there,
focus on the area directly in front of and around the building. I
would get there at 10am, occasionally check the rear of the structure,
but camp out across the street so as to be able to see the crabapple
tree to your left and the feeders to the rear of the structure along
the fence line. You are almost certain to see it feeding in this area.
There will probably be others birders there as well so you will have
multiple sets of eyes around.


Good luck,

Owen Hanson, Stevens Point, WI

Hey all,
I took a jaunt on the Memorial Union terrace this afternoon and saw 9
Long-tailed Ducks (one male, eight females) from the same spot as Marty. It
was a nice treat to observe their follow-the-leader style dunking and
diving dance. If you're in the Madison area, it's worth a stop :)

Happy birding,

Subject: [wisb] Hammond's Flycatcher continues in Iowa County
I arrived this morning at about 10:00 A.M. At least one birder had been
there over an hour without seeing it, and about 8 or 9 of us watched for
approximately another 1 1/2 hours without seeing it. I was fortunate to be
standing next to another birder's car, and while he was retrieving something
from his car I heard him yell something. I didn't know if that was directed
at me, but when he hurriedly got out of the car and started photographing
the crabapple bush in front of the house, I knew something was up. He said
he had caught the Hammond's Flycatcher in the corner of his eye, and he
thought it had come in from the south. It was only in that bush briefly, but
it proceeded to put on quite a show over the next half hour. It perched in
bushes near the house, landed on the grass, paving blocks, barbed wire fence
strand, a flower pot, and a bird house.
Everyone had great looks and nobody left disappointed!

Thomas Wood, Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County

Subject: [wisb] Re: The Stove Pipe Bird
That’s why I mentioned the caveat about exotics - hopefully ebird will one day introduce a work around that maybe shows (uncountable) exotics on maps but not lists (or doesn’t include them in species totals).
It is useful to track exotics (European Goldfinch & Great Tit in WI for example) but there does need to be a way to separate them out.

Hello CBCers, With our Hales Count Week starting tomorrow, Thursday, we're
looking for a couple more folks to fill in some holes in our Sunday count.
Specifically, we'd like to cover Falk Park on Rawson Avenue west of I-94,
the Cudahy Nature Preserve just south of the airport on College Avenue, the
airport surrounds for any Snowies and Short-ears, and the area adjacent to
the Dog park and County Gardens off of Rawson Avenue. Lunch is available
to any volunteers at 11:30 at the Grant Park Clubhouse. Let me know if
you're interested. Thanks.

Stewart,

I’m not sure the eBird list is accurate, as the WSO list doesn’t include European Siskin, Clark’s Grebe, Monk Parakeet, and possibly others.

Hi Kurt,

This is easy to do in ebird.
Under the Explore Tab put Wisconsin in the Explore Regions box
Select First Seen just under the 452 species.

This shows that 32 species have been added to WI ebird since 2000 - although as ebird doesn’t separate out exotics it should be noted that this does include 3 escaped European songbirds.

Good Birding

Subject: [wisb] More Hammond's Flycatcher information
Just some tips on looking for this bird. The white house is on the north side of the road. Behind the house is a small creek that is still open. Jim and I were shocked to see the bird this morning at 7:40. It flew out of the field just to the west of the house and headed south over the road. It perched for a brief but clear view in a tree on the south side of the road and then disappeared. The creek continues on the south side of the road but is largely frozen on that side. Further back up this frozen creek to the south is where the sun hits first. I sense the bird spent the next 2+ hours this way out of view. At 10:30 it flew back from the south side of the road and perched low in the willows to the west of the house along the creek. This is when the now larger group had clear views. It favored the trees along the creek but then headed east and we lost it behind the house. We left then but the others who remained back had it fly into the crab apple tree right in front of
the house around 1 and it fed right around the house for about 30 minutes.

My guess is that it roosts along the creek in the heavy vegetation to the north and west of the house. Early AM is probably spent south of the road which gets the sunlight first. 10:30 has been a good time for it to appear near the house for 2 consecutive days.

It was a fun chase and thanks to Jim for driving.

Subject: [wisb] Hammond's Flycatcher ~ Iowa Co 12/11/18, image...
Hi all,
I made the run out to Iowa Co this morning with Mark K joining me with
hopes to find the reported rare visitor to the state, the Hammond's
Flycatcher. It is said to be the first state record for this species. About
7:40 am the bird showed for about 20 seconds. We could not relocate the
bird for the next 2 1/2 hours. At that time the bird made a distant brief
appearance before once again going out of sight. It was an exciting time
getting this #341 bird on my state life list. Thanks to Edgar for finding
this rare bird to the state and getting the word out for others to try for
it.

A distant shot of the Hammond's Flycatcher at this link if you care to view
it:

Subject: [wisb] Count Week has started for some CBCs
A reminder that Count Week has started for any Christmas Bird Counts that will be held on Friday Dec. 14, the first day of the Count Period. Count Week includes the three days before and three days after any particular CBC. This means that for most of the "big" counts this coming Saturday, Count Week starts tomorrow ( Weds. 12/12) and runs through Tuesday the 18th.

Any rare or out-of-season birds that are seen anywhere within a CBC circle in a Count Week should be reported to the count compiler (with a photo or at least a thorough description EVEN FOR A COMMON SPECIES - yes, I meant to use all caps. It drives compilers and eBird editors to distraction when people report unusual or especially out-of-season species with no description. Yes, they believe you most likely saw what you say you saw. Tell them WHY it was that species and not another similar one.) You can see the count dates and compiler contact info (most of them, at least) and a link to a map of the count circles at the WSO website:


https://wsobirds.org/christmas-bird-count


And, in case anyone was wondering, yes, the Hammond's Flycatcher in Iowa Co. was seen today, and no, it's not in a count circle. (Almost all of County NN is between the Clyde and Richland Center circles - dang.) However, a White-eyed Vireo was seen in the UW Arboretum near the Skunk Cabbage Bridge on the morning bird walk today, so with any luck, it'll stick around through the lousy weather tomorrow for the Madison CBC, or at least for Count Week.

I can attest to the fact that Neil Harriman was a wonderful teacher. I was his student early on in his career in Oshkosh. His Plant Taxonomy class gave me an appreciation for native plants that continues to this day. I am one of those students he turned into a life long learner.

He was a judge for the middle school Science Olympiad event on plant identification in the early 90’s. I had a team at the event and stopped in with a few of my students to see the very much larger herbarium. After I reintroduced myself he graciously took me
and my students into the herbarium and found plants that I had collected in the late ‘60’s! It was a brief and completely wonderful reunion with him. He was always so very generous with his time and in sharing his expertise. His contributions to science, his community and his many students are really quite incredible.

Subject: [wisb] Celebration & memorial for late husband of ex-WSO-President Bettie Harriman, Neil Harriman, co-editor of Passenger Pigeon
Visitation Wednesday for Prof. Emeritus Neil Harriman, husband of former WSO President Bettie Harriman
A celebration of Neil's life will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Wednesday Dec. 12, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Homes-Westside, 100 Lake Pointe Drive, Oshkosh.

Professor Emeritus of Biology and Microbiology Neil Harriman died at his home Dec. 7.

Harriman retired in 1998 but is, in part, remembered for his 34 years as a member of the faculty at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. He joined the faculty in 1964.
Harriman was a dedicated teacher and found great satisfaction in not only teaching about botanical information, but also helping the students learn how to be life-long learners. Harriman's research work of collecting, identifying and conserving plants was also a pleasure to him.

Neil's joy for editing the written word extended beyond botany as did his willingness to "help-out" when needed. During his retirement, Neil joined his wife Bettie as co-editors for the quarterly journal of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology from 2003 -2014. He also contributed his editing skills to the production of the "Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Wisconsin," a 600 page book published by the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology (2006).

Subject: [wisb] HAMMOND'S FLYCATCHER YES!!!
I arrived a little after 9:00 this morning to discover Tom & Wendy Schultz already working the area. Nice to see I was not the only crazy person! It was cold so we walked the road and checked the yard (the owner was very pleasant giving us "free coverage "). The sun was slowly getting over the hill so most of the home/yard were in the shade for a long while. After about 2 hours we felt that it was no longer there. About then Wendy saw an interesting bird come out of an adjacent cedar shrub and exit around the house. Two of us went to the east side of the house while Tom stayed on the west side. We discovered the Hammond's perched on a tall weed actively looking around. We yelled for Tom only to discover he had seen it also and was yelling for us. The bird worked along the north side of the house from one tall weed to another, eventually flying around to the west side of the building. Tom got one excellent photo of it before it flew off towards a partially open creek across
the field. We could not relocate it. Other birders began arriving and the three of us then left for home after telling them of our unbelievable 5 minutes of enjoying it. You probably could have heard us yelling and cheering, and then dancing while seeing the flycatcher and after it had disappeared in the adjacent field!
While we watched the bird was active and appeared healthy. Good luck to other birders.

A Hammond's Flycatcher was found in Iowa County on Sunday afternoon. Excellent photos are on Facebook. The bird was found near Lone Rock at 2796 County Road NN. This is just west of Highway 130. The homeowner is OK with folks looking around for the bird but please be respectful of their property. Also if the bird is still around today please give it enough space to forage. I'm sure it is hard to find many insects now and feeding is vital to its survival.

Subject: [wisb] Devil's Lake Solitaire


I hiked up Balanced Rock Trial, this morning. I thought it was going to be sunny and snow free. I was wrong on both, as the rocks had snow and ice. I didn’t see a single juniper berry. Look back towards the lake, near Devil’s Doorway (yes, the spot where many have gotten amazing photos), I pished and bam, the solitaire flew up to a juniper top. Other than that, I saw 12 C. geese, 3 unknown ducks, 1 Downy, 1 R-bellied and 1 Red-tailed Hawk.
I stopped at the S-P dam. Shad are coming through the dam, so eagle and gull watching is great. The only unusual gull, was a 1st winter Glaucous. Had a possible 1st year Thayer’s type Iceland, but not the best view.

Reposting entire message for Brad.

I should note that Area 1 is the section I usually do, but I need to be at work that day. I'd be happy to give tips/advice to anyone interested in doing it this year. Interesting mix of farmland with woodlots, some rural subdivisions (think bird feeders!) and a river corridor that often has waterfowl in the open sections. The Concord General Store is a nice rest stop and lunch spot (and has a good feeder setup right outside the eating area's big windows. I always augment my count there.)

Please contact Brad if you're interested.

As previously reported on eBird by Tom Wood and Barry Baumann, a Bohemian
Waxwing continues to be found in the berry trees at the north end of the
parking lot at The Osthoff in Elkhart Lake. It is in the company of
numerous Cedar Waxwings, allowing for close comparison. All field marks
were noted, especially the rufous undertail coverts. It was picked out from
the crowd because it was noticeably larger and grayer than the accompanying
Cedar Waxwings (which were also gorgeous!).

Yesterday I had 2 Iceland Gulls (1Kumlien’s and 1 Thayer’s) on a frozen pond, just west of the landfill. Today, there was an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, but I couldn’t find any Iceland. There were still 200 Ring-billed Gulls around and at least the same for Herring Gulls. This was including the landfill. Viewing the landfill area was mostly when the gulls were overhead, I couldn’t see any landed, at the landfill. So, there’s a good possibility that I could miss an Iceland.
Interesting was a dead Ovenbird along the road. Not today fresh, but recent. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane co.

Cool photos, Jim! There was an immature male Long-tailed Duck in Lakeshore
State Park in February 2012. I spent multiple hours over several days in
cold windy weather trying to get a good photo because he was constantly
diving and staying underwater for quite a while. See:

Hi all,
While out birding some of the Milwaukee lakefront today, the highlight was
a female adult Long-tailed Duck. The duck continually dove for food the
whole time I was present which was about 15-20 minutes. No other ducks were
in the area of this one. Always in search this time of year for a Snowy
Owl, I came up empty. A couple hundred Greater Scaup were present in the
lagoon near Summerfest along with a couple Red-breasted Mergansers, Common
Goldeneye and one lone female Bufflehead. It was a chilly morning with
cloudy skies, stiff winds out of the north, temps were around 31 degrees.

A few years ago about mid-November, Jim and I estimated approximately 100,000 ducks, 10,000 Tundra Swans, and 50 Bald Eagles, all viewed from the Brownsville overlook. There were about the same number of ducks and swans seen farther south. It’s a very impressive sight that everyone, birder or not, should see at least once in their lifetime!

All,
We vacation each summer near Hayward, WI on Nelson Lake. This past summer
was the best for eagle viewing. We counted at least three mature eagles
and two juveniles. The way the juveniles hung around the nest across from
our cabin I am guessing they are first year. That, and we didn't see them
last year.

Also, we visited the Lacrosse, WI/Brownsville, MN area last weekend to view
the Tundra Swans. We noticed a number of eagles as well. Since we never
visited that area before I am not sure how many eagles there have been in
the past. I am assuming quite a few since that would be prime area with
all the open water. We noticed three separate juvenile eagles while
birding at Reno Bottoms, along with two mature eagles.

Good birding to you all,

We live on the shore of Beaver Dam Lake. We often see an eagle or two on the ice, especially if there is some open water. Usually we see adults but this morning we saw 5 young eagles on the ice, the most we've seen at one time. I think they were all first year birds. They were so dark that they looked like giant crows. I believe this was a good year in terms of eagle production because I've seen as many as 3 young ones together by my farm near Leipsig. Back in June or July two young eagles got into a sparring match just over Calamus Cr. They locked talons and fell into the creek. One immediately began paddling with its wings and took off. The other one just floated in the water for a minute or so as if to say "I meant to do that". After that minute, it too began the wing paddle and soon thereafter lifted off.

So lots of eagles around BD.

Hi all,
One of my birding stops today was the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. It was
a quiet day there birding like most places this time of year. The highlight
was a flock of Wild Turkeys back in the woods near a ravine. I stopped on
the opposite side of the ravine not to disturb them for a few shots. A
flock of 6 and one of them remained perched in a tree while I was present.
One displayed the whole time I was there too. A couple wondered around
feeding, a couple just rested around the area they were in. It was nice to
see just doing what they like to do. It was a gloomy day, temps around 30,
low winds out there, not bad for the end of November.

A few images of the Wild Turkeys from the day at this link if you care to
view them:

Hi Peter - please fwd to Wisbirdnet thanks!

Tenney Park Dec 01, 2018 2:30 PM
Traveling 0.50 miles 90 minutes
Weather approx 34deg, breezy, cloudy, freezing drizzle
All birds reported? Yes
Comments:
Four people including 2 students braved near freezing drizzle for the 1st Sat in Dec Bird and Nature Outing at Tenney Park. This outing featured Nature Readings with stops at some scenic spots where participants selected and read quotes from Leopold, Muir, and other favorites. Dozens of self-confident Mallards foraged and quacked their happy laughs nearby. The students helped do a vortex scope scan for the odd duck and a sweep across the lake half a mile out into the dim mist revealed rows of white lumps that resolved into a large ribbon of long-necked Tundra Swans riding out the rainy weather in Madison. Some Tundras typically stay until the last open water freezes before taking off and following I90 to the east to estuaries along the Atlantic.

9 Canada Goose
150 Tundra Swan -- Est based on what we could see in a long line at about 1/2 mile offshore with individuals distinguishable in vortex razor in misty drizzle, probably more in distance
82 Mallard -- Some resting at shoreline, some near shore dabbling, some offshore doing occasional short unmallard-like dives, with several scattered large groups within 1/4 mile of Tenney quay
0 Bufflehead -- Surprised to see no Buffies, about 30 havd been hanging around
7 Ring-billed Gull -- Cruising near shore, none seen on water
3 House Sparrow -- Flitting in and out of Cliff Swallow nests under Tenney Locks bldg eves

Number of Taxa: 6

Subject: [wisb] Harlequin in Sheboygan North Point
Greetings all,
After an absence of some time, I found the female Harlequin near the broken
jetty just south of North Point. Also a few Goldeneye females in the same
area along with the Buffleheads that have been present. I couldn't find
anything at the Marina. On the beach near North Pier there were two Greater
Black Backed Gulls.
Great birding all,
Jim Hess

I took a drive through the Buena Vista after
work tonight to look for
snowies. I did not see any, but I did
find a small traffic jam so I think
there must have been one nearby.
Everyone was ignoring this owl that was
sitting on a fence nearby. Can someone

Hi Tom, that's in the full
update on the website -- 97 by this date last year and 7 by
this date in the non-irruption year prior to that.
Be cautious, however, as during the big
irruption year of 2013-14, which basically matched both
2014-15 and last winter in magnitude, we had only recorded 5
in the state by this date. Hence my caveat that it's
early yet in some regard.

The short version? A

of apparent juveniles, but still too early to

Hi All
We had a flock of 50 or so Bohemian Waxwings swooping around our
neighborhood (in town) shortly after noon. They flew from perches high in
the maples to crabapple trees and coralberry bushes and back. Didn't stick
around for long. They didn't seem happy wit a couple noisy Blue Jays.

There's a good crop on the crabapple trees around town and also decent
amount of fruit on the trees at the entrance to Nicolet College,
traditionally a good spot for them.

Ryan, as a comparison, do you know the approximate total of Snowy Owls that
had been reported by late November of 2017?

My latest statewide Snowy Owl update is now available on the 2018-19 Update
tab at:
https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/WildlifeHabitat/SnowyOwls.html

The short version? A relatively low total of 26 so far and much lower ratio
of apparent juveniles, but still too early to know exactly how things will
play out this winter. More details at the link above!

Subject: [wisb] Re: Christmas Bird Counts starting soon!
The La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday, December 15th. If there are any members of the list from the La Crosse area who are not currently taking part in a count that day, I would love to get a few more section counters. We have 3-4 open sections this year due to retirements and schedule conflicts.

The La Crosse Area CBC is centered on the La Crosse County Courthouse and extends north to County OT, south to the southern tip of Goose Island, west to Hokah, MN, and east past Barre Mills. (See a map at: http://www.couleeaudubon.org/CBC_LaCrosse.pdf). If anyone lives within the count circle and isn't available to help with a section, we can also use your help by having you count birds at your own feeder.

If you can help with a section or would like to check to see if you live in the circle for a feeder count, please send me an e-mail!

Good birding, happy counting, and Happy Holidays everyone!

Dan Jackson, Chaseburg, Vernon County
(Near La Crosse)

I notice there are still a number of counts without dates (even though I know some of them actually have dates set already,), so I would urge the compilers to get their count dates in to Kyle Lindemer as soon as possible. I'm sure I'm not the only one trying to plan their schedule for the last two weeks of December.

Check your dates, or find out how to participate, at this link:

"Best tour leaders I've ever had, and I've had several. Level of knowledge, enthusiasm, responsiveness to individuals, relaxed yet aware of the group as well as the birds and environment, etc. Can't say enough good things about their leadership."

The first report of evening grosbeaks came on Oct. 29th on Washington

We had 3 to 4 inches of snow in early November now, with the rains two days

I haven't birded away from our place for awhile so can't give an accurate

However, we continue to have Evening Grosbeaks coming to our feeder. Today
we had 20. They have been coming each day since Nov 15. Otherwise we have
between 10-15 species daily at our feeder including a Common Grackle that
is way past normal autumn visiting times. The Northern Goshawk that often
visits hasn't been seen for about a month, but we have had several
sightings of Northern Shrike and Rough-legged Hawk.

Subject: [wisb] Hooded Merganser ~ Fox River in Waukesha 11/24/18, some images...
Hi all,
I stopped by the Fox River this morning near the dam in Waukesha to see if
anything was going on. There was a male Hooded Merganser present hanging
out with Mallards. Could this be the famous “Hollyhood” that was seen last
winter? Some believe it is. I can’t say, but it acted like it could be, on
shore once for awhile watching the mallards eat some bird seed that someone
had tossed out. It was a gloomy day with a light mist every so often, I
hung around and took some pics of this guy as he had not been seen for 4
days and this was my first sighting of him since last winter. Just before I
left, the merganser took to the air and flew out of sight to the north. A
beautiful duck I will say! Temps were around 35, low winds but a dark
gloomy day as said.

Images of the Hooded Merganser at this link if you care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] New sensitive species for eBird in Wisconsin
Hello birders, you may recall that eBird rolled out a new policy on sensitive species about a year ago, obfuscating public outputs for select species around the globe to reduce impacts of illegal capture, targeted killing, excessive disturbance, etc. At that time, affected Wisconsin species included Gyrfalcon, Great Gray Owl, and Northern Hawk Owl.

Now, with input from WI-DNR and WSO, eBird has broadened that policy to include additional species at the state level, some year-round and others only during seasons of impact. The new species involved are listed below.

YEAR-ROUND:
Boreal Owl
Sharp-tailed Grouse
Piping Plover
Whooping Crane
Kirtland's Warbler

SEASONALLY:
Northern Goshawk (1 Mar - 1 Aug)
Long-eared Owl (1 Nov - 15 Aug)
King Rail (15 May - 1 Aug)
Loggerhead Shrike (15 May - 15 Aug)

For more details on why these species were selected, the sensitive species policy, and its repercussions for maps and other outputs, please see this new article on our Wisconsin eBird page:

Subject: [wisb] Rufous Hummingbird ~ Fox Point MKE Co. 11/12/18, some images...
Hi all,
I received information on a Rufous Hummingbird that has been visiting a
feeder in Fox Point Wisconsin. The natural range for the species is western
US and western Canada. The Rufous had been a regular at the feeder there
since October some time, I don't have the date it was first seen. I arrived
at about 7:45 am, and it was 2 hours before the bird showed up at the
feeder. The homeowner said it had showed a couple of times before I
arrived. The Rufous Hummingbird fed on the nectar for about 20-30 seconds
and then flew off out of sight. I left the property after that sighting. As
of today, November 18, I heard the bird has not been seen since the day I
saw it. This hatch year bird is a female. It was pretty cold with temps
around 21 degrees, cloudy, but winds were low so it was not to bad out
there. I was told this bird had been banded on November 8. A big thank you
to the homeowner for letting a few in to see this stunning visitor.

Images of the Rufous Hummingbird are at the link below if you care to view
them:

All,
We've had Juncos for about two weeks now visiting our feeders and of course
foraging on the ground. We have intermittent sightings of up to four Pine
Siskins.

My wife and I had our youngest daughter along for an outing and she was treated to some very nice sightings. We saw a Snowy owl and at dusk were treated to a family of Whooping cranes that gave us some good looks although it was late in the day. It was amazing to see the size difference as they were with a flock of Sandhill cranes in the field. We were able to get some images if you care to see them. Good luck and have a great Holiday season!

It remains to be seen if this year will rival last for finches, but
this is how it began last year. A few Pine Siskins arrived
mid-November. A few more along with several Redpolls by early
December, and by the end of December one hundred or more Pine Siskins

Hi all,
Has anyone been to Petenwell Flowage/Lake recently? If not this year, have
you birded there in past years around this time? Wondering if it's worth
bringing my scope to check it out next week. Is it all frozen? Is it
usually very birdy in late fall?

I was pleased to find some info in the Haunts book about where I can access
the shoreline to view the lake, but any comments on conditions at this time
of year would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

If birding would be like today, you won't miss much. There were very few birds and nothing unusual.

If you're out and about birding for the next nine days, be sure to check ahead to see if hunting is allowed where you'll be birding, and plan accordingly. Even if it's not, wearing bright clothing (such as a yellow safety vest) is a really good idea.

That bird is really well-camouflaged. Same color as the tree trunk. Great
photos.

Hi all,
I decided to make a run up to the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center this
morning in search for any owl species. Walking a trail there I spotted a
beautiful Screech Owl, gray morph sound a sleep. It was a chilly 12 degrees
when I left for birding but with full sun and no wind, it was a very
pleasant day to be out. First owl of the season for me, it was nice to see
one again.

A couple images of the Screech Owl at this link if you care to view them:

Thanks and good birding,

Subject: [wisb] Birding in Cambodia and Hong Kong
We recently returned from a trip to Southeast Asia. We spent two and a half
days birding around Siem Reap in Cambodia, and another day in the New
Territories north of Hong Kong.

We used the Cambodia Bird Guide Association in Siem Reap. Their guides were
very good, especially Srun and Sophoan. They have a strong emphasis on
training, which was really nice to see. We saw 88 species, most of which
were lifers. There were some cool birds - you really ought to see the
minivets up close.
http://www.birdguideasso.org/html/

In Hong Kong we used David Diskin of Birding Hong Kong. We went to a small
park first, then spent most of the day at the Mai Po Nature Reserve. We
finished the day in some family farm fields. Saw 91 species overall, though
there was a little overlap with the Cambodian birds.

If you're heading that way, these folks can help you see birds.
