Subject: [wisb] Dane County Hwy M closed for construction



Not sure how this will come through to Wisbirdn.  Thanks to Shawn Miller for the info.




Peter Fissel          Madison, Dane Co.                                                                                                                 













Starting next week, sections of County M between Verona and Oregon will be restricted to local traffic until late October as crews resurface the highway.

- Monday, September 16 - Friday, October 4: County M from Fish Hatchery Road (County D), south of Fitchburg, to County MM in Oregon.
- Monday, October 7 - Friday, October 25: County M between Fish Hatchery Road and Thousand Oaks Trail, east of County PB near Verona. 

Through traffic must use alternate local routes until late October, such as Verona Road (US 18/151) and the Madison Beltline (US 12).

 

Access will be maintained to area businesses and residences within the project limits. Motorists with a destination along County M are strongly encouraged to plan ahead, allow additional travel time, and proceed with caution in the work zone.

 

All work operations and restrictions are weather dependent and subject to change.

Subject: [wisb] Report from Wisconsin Point (Superior)
I received a call from Daryl Tessen this evening, with a brief report from Wisconsin Point. He mentioned that a couple of Parasitic Jaegers were observed today, although in general the birding was relatively slow, overall.
He is hoping things will pick up tomorrow. As we have learned from previous years, things can change very quickly on the Point -- depending on wind direction and other factors.

This weekend is the 21st annual WSO Jaegerfest field trip, which runs from Friday through Sunday on Wisconsin Point (Moccasin Mike Road). Everyone is welcome -- you don't need to be a WSO member to attend!

Subject: [wisb] The weather for Nelson's Sparrow.

Usually there will be a couple around, right at mid month. Although it’s still early.
I’ve noticed that the wind ,west of Wisconsin, has been from the south, at night.. I believe Nelson’s would mostly come from our NW.
I did walk 2 really good looking fields, yesterday and today. No luck.
I won’t be out till Saturday. Hoping for favorable winds. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane Co.

Subject: [wisb] Mississippi Kite ~ (Late Post) in Wisconsin 8/16/19, some images...
Hi all,
After a tip from a good friend about a Mississippi Kite here in Wisconsin,
I decided to check it out on August 16, 2019. I arrived early and found the
bird perched in a dead tree in the area it might be found. I watched it for
awhile as it repeatedly went for large flying insects or it perched. It
preened a lot and when it was not preening it just remained perched looking
for something to eat. Obviously a life bird. Sorry, I can not share this
location. The early morning started out cloudy but soon gave way to some
nice sunshine.

Images of the Mississippi Kite from that day, 8/16/19 at the link below if
you care to view them:

Thanks and good birding,

Subject: [wisb] Re: Wisconsin ebird portal
While using the WI Breeding Bird Atlas portal (ebird.org/atlaswi) was vital to making sure your data contributed to that specific project, the difference between the Wisconsin eBird portal (ebird.org/wi) and regular eBird portal (ebird.org) is less critical when it comes to data entry. With the latter two, the data all goes to the same place regardless of which one you submit through. The state portal provides some locally-customized defaults during data submission and exploration and a platform for eBird stories, state-specific lists, and other features. But when it comes to data entry use whichever you wish.

Again, this is different from the Atlas, which continues to welcomecontributions of data through this fall. Any species with a breeding code needs to be entered via the Atlas portal to be included in the project. Read more about that here:

Subject: [wisb] Chimney Swifts
I am in the death throes of my annual quest for Chimney Swift roosts and am
trying to decide which roost to visit. I feel like a Labrador Retriever
who has so many tennis balls that she can't decide which one to chase!
The chimney at Tempest Oyster Bar in Madison doesn't have the largest roost
around, but it is my favorite at the moment. If you haven't been there, I
recommend that you watch from the top of the parking garage next door. I
saw about 110 on Saturday and the Swifts would sometimes swoop within 10
feet of me because I was so close to the chimney.

Queen of Peace School seems to have become the west side roost in Madison,
supplanting Cherokee Middle School, but when I was there a week ago there
were about 400 Swifts vs the many thousands I had seen at Cherokee in the
past few years. Has anyone been at Queen of Peace in the past week?

I see that somebody is reporting a roost on East Johnson near Livingston
with 200 Swifts on the 13th. If anyone has a more specific location for
that roost, please let me know. I also wonder if East High School has
Swifts this fall.

Okauchee Old Norris School had almost 3000 on the 6th but I don't see more
recent reports and I'd rather stay closer to home, if possible.

If anyone has information about roosts near Madison, I'd love to hear about
it so I can decide which tennis ball to chase!

Subject: [wisb] Re: Suet for birds
We have avoided the mold problem by buying Kaytee Positively Peanut suet cakes. They are more expensive but have zero fillers. They are in the sun for half the day but do not melt either.
Our cakes get eaten rather quickly as we have a number of other bird species besides our three different woodpeckers. They don’t have time to get moldy!
I hope this helps.

Subject: [wisb] Early Fox Sparrow, more Palms & Yellow-rumps - Bayfield County
Awesome flight last night! At my house in Bayfield County this morning I scored a LeConte's Sparrow, my earliest ever Fox Sparrow, latest ever Alder Flycatcher, and 15 species of warblers, though I surely missed some in what was an abbreviated outing. Very notable was the slight shift toward shorter-distance migrants including the LeConte's, Fox, and more Lincoln's Sparrows, small numbers of both kinglets, a few incoming robins, a trickle of Purple Finches overhead, and a significant bump in Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers. Looking forward to the week ahead!

Good afternoon,
It was a great morning at Warnimont Park! I just left and was there for a
little over 5 hours. There were a very good number of warblers, and I had
21 species. Mourning, Golden-winged, and Blackburnian were some of the
best. Also had my first fall Yellow-rumped Warblers. I knew today would be
awesome and it was!

This is not unusual in periods of higher humidity- like we've had
lately-especially with no melt products - they have ground corn and other
grains added to reduce melting. These same grains absorb moisture and
support mildew and or mold growth in suitable conditions. Usually you can
scrap away the black, gray, or greenish growth down to normal looking

Subject: [wisb] Re: Suet for birds
Hello Mariette,
I have an urban Stevens Point bird feeding yard/station. I offer suet year
round and find that, not often, but from time to time, the suet is not
consumed quickly enough to avoid spoilage. This only happens in the summer
months (obviously). I also find that I must scrub clean my suet feeder
approximately two or three times a year. I use a large wooden suet feeder
(suitable for Pileated) that becomes fouled with mold or fungus and
bacteria if I do not. I'm guessing that typically you have enough volume of
suet consumption to have avoided spoiled suet in the past and that this
years moist conditions have lead to your issue.

Happy bird feeding

I went to Horicon Marsh but as I expected water levels were very high and I saw no shorebirds.
On the way home I stopped at the pond at the SW corner of US 151 and CTH A between Beaver Dam and Waupun.
The only way to view the pond is to take the entrance ramp off A heading S on 151. There were lots of shorebirds but many were a long way away and backlit. Among those I could ID were both yellowlegs, least piper, semipalm plover, killdeer, and a single willet. There were lots of shorebirds I couldn’t ID. Tomorrow I’m doing a seining survey on Beaver Dam L beginning at 0800 but I plan to go back to this spot for an hr or so before I have to start my survey.

Subject: [wisb] local and (mostly) non-local birding
Wisbirders
LOCAL
First some observations from my farm near Leipsig. I continue to hear the local pair of barred owls on a regular basis. They can sound off at any time of the day. Sometimes only one calls, but more often it is a duet. Once they were west of CTH J. One was calling from the tree line by the marsh. It was answered by one well to the N. I'm guessing the bird to the N was not the mate to "my" bird but rather an owl with an adjacent territory. For 6-7 years I've had yellow-billed cuckoos on my property, presumably nesting. This year one was vocal from late May thru June. I didn't hear it in July, but started hearing it again in early August. It sang sporadically during the rest of the month but I haven't heard it this month.

NON-LOCAL

Earlier this year I birded in S TX, CA, AZ, Tanzania, Taiwan, and Great Bear L above the arctic circle. I think I reported on all those visits except AZ. Here are some reports re my jaunts after Great Bear. All are in the ABA area but none are in WI, so if you have no interest in birds outside WI, now is the time to push the delete button.

Snowbird Utah----I attended a fish/herp conference in Snowbird Utah. It was held at the CIiff Lodge which is in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC) at about 7500'. There was very little bird activity in LCC. I did pish in a MacGilllivray's warbler a little further down the canyon. There was more action in adjacent Big Cottonwood CYN (BCC). Near the top of the CYN at about 9000' I found Mt bluebird, many Cassin's finches, and Clarks's nutcracker. Surprising was a rock wren at about 9300'. I also got a quick look at a calliope hummer at a feeder near the top of BCC. I talked to a lady at that house who told me they were one of the few home owners who stay there over the winter. Last winter they had >700" of snow!! I also went to Anteloupe Island on Great Salt L. There were thousands of eared grebes and avocets along the causeway leading to the island. Also many Franklin's gulls. Interesting birds on the island were chukar and burrowing owl.

CrowDuck lake---this lake is in eastern Manitoba---fantastic fishing for smallmouth, walleye and N pike. BTW, crowduck is the local name for cormorants. Many thousand Bonaparte gulls nest on the various rock islands. Saw lots of red-necked grebes including one mom with a small youngster.

AK---Along with 5 friends, we rented a 60' boat and spent 4 days on the ocean out from Homer. Before driving to Homer, I birded near Anchorage. Most places yielded very little but near Girdwood, I had spruce grouse, many white-winged crossbills, and several varied thrushes. In the harbor by Homer were glaucous-winged gull, mew gull, and thousands of black-legged kittiwakes. There were no shorebirds by Homer. On the ocean, I saw N fulmar, pigeon guillemot, both horned and tufted puffins, many common murres, rhinoceros auklet, both short-tailed and sooty shearwaters, and both Kittlitz's and marbled murrelets. Except for the murrelets, a day trip out of Homer would probably yield all these spp. BTW, fishing was very good for salmon and rockfish but terrible for halibut.

AZ---Went to SE AZ in early September. It was extremely hot, usually 103-105.

September 2---I started in Madera Canyon. Didn't see much except for a zone-tailed hawk soaring with the vultures. I couldn't get to the top of the canyon because the road was closed because of a bad accident (a cyclist was hit and killed). Next I tried the area above the Whipple Observatory. Here I saw CYN wren and varied bunting (excellent spot for both these spp) and blacktailed gnatcatcher. Next stop was at the intersection of Moson and Herford roads in Sierra Vista. This is a great spot for Botteri's sparrow, which I saw in addition to Cassin's sparrow and blue grosbeak. I drove up to the top of Carr CYN but it was dead. I finished the day at the top of Miller CYN hoping to hear Mexican whip-poor-wills but I heard none....or any other night birds.

September 3----At the San Pedro House outside of Sierra Vista I saw my only common ground dove of the trip. In St David I spent about 2 hrs looking for MS kites but dipped. At L Cochise on the edge of Wilcox, I saw several Baird's sandpipers, many avocets and a few common shorebird spp. Next I drove to Elfrida looking for thrashers. At one spot that is often good for bendire's thrasher, I had a bird respond to my tape but I never got a good look at it. At this location and another nearby, it didn't matter which thrasher (bendire's, crissal, curve-billed) song I played, I always had curve-billed thrashers come in. I did have several flocks of lark buntings in the area. I went back to Lake Cochise and found 2 flocks of scaled quail and a peregrine falcon that had caught a shorebird.

September 4---Went to the Chiricahua Mountains today. At Barfoot Park, I had a pr of Mexican chickadees. At the George Walker House in Paradise, I had juniper titmouse and blue-throated hummingbird along with 5 other spp of hummers. At the Southwest Research Station I saw my first berylline's hummer in about 10 years. I saw 2 hummers I didn't see in Paradise bringing me to 9 hummers for the day. At the feeders on the property that used to be owned by Dave Jasper (now owned by Bob Rodriquez) I saw a crissal thrasher. Along the S Fk to Cave Cr I had an AZ woodpecker. I then went back to St David and finally found a pr of MS kites.

September 5---I first went to Madera CYN. Nothing in the canyon itself but I heard a Bell's vireo in Florida wash below the canyon. Next stop was Honey Bee CYN in NW Tucson. This is my go to spot for gilded flicker. Despite temps well in to the 90s, I was able to find one. I made a quick stop at San Xaiver Mission but failed to find anything new.

Overall it was good trip. Big misses were Mexican whip-poor-will, Bendire's thrasher, and sulfur-bellied flycatcher (most had left). Saw the most deer I've ever seen. Most were does with fawns, one of which had 4 fawns.

There is some work to be done on this subject. From what I’m hearing it’s more likely that the eggs coming from a Breeder might not have the gene but wild caught eggs and caterpillars may. I think that’s the case as my butterflies booked out of here quite quickly after release.

I was at a tagged Monarch release last month. They said 1%-2% of released
tagged Monarchs are reported from Mexico, but that number is probably
higher because no one can check all of the millions of Monarchs that winter
there...

I'm glad others got to experience this. It went from 87 to 75 F in Milw in
about 1 minute. I had been outside waiting for the cold front and just
after it hit, the local monarchs in my neighborhood took flight - then
more, and more and . . suddenly I was glassing monarchs so high in the sky
- just hanging on the wind. I had no idea they would fly that high! the
75+ I saw within about 10-15 minutes. Truly a wonderful experience.
My apologies again for not stating location - I forget this is a statewide
list.
Could be good birding tomorrow!

Hi all,
With some light rain falling this morning, I decided to check a few beaches
on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Bradford Beach had 1 Sempalmated Plover and 21
Sanderlings. I took a few shots when the rain let up. Always so cute to see
the Sanderlings running up and down the beach, in and out of the wave
action in search of things to eat. McKinley Beach and Lakeshore State Park
had no shorebirds, at least when I stopped. It was a foggy morning, slight
drizzle at times and light winds from the east.

A few images of the Semipalmated Plover and Sanderlings from this morning
at this link if you care to view them:

CARIBBEAN BIRDS SERIOUSLY IMPACTED BY *DORIAN*

According to a report from BirdsCaribbean, *Hurricane Dorian* seriously impacted and devastated the northern Bahama Islands. The category 5 storm battered the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island for more than two days with 185 to 220 mph winds, and included a storm surge in excess of 23 feet.
The damage to communities, lives, and habitats is unprecedented and heartbreaking. Also, among the endemic species particularly impacted were Bahama Parrot, Bahama Swallow, Bahama Warbler, and Bahama Nuthatch.

Subject: [wisb] Lake Park Warbler Walk #3, September 7, 2019
eBird Report - Lake Park--general, Sep 7, 2019

On another lovely, comfortably cool morning, 22 or so birders made their
leisurely way from the Warming House area in Lake Park across the
pedestrian bridge to the Wolcott Statue and Lion Bridges. Again the
morning was rather quiet without a great amount of avian activity.
Nevertheless, we still had a good number of species--45, including 11
warbler species. So far this season on our warbler walks, we have not yet
seen a large influx of migrants. Hopefully, they are still to come, so
join us next week!

Good evening,
I spent the morning at Bender Park and was rewarded with a great number of
warblers. There were many nice pockets of them. I saw on the bird cast
radar that last night and tonight are/were suppose to be very high
migration nights. That doesn't say what types of birds, but I've been out
every day the this week, and I noticed a big increase in Blackpolls and
Magnolia's today. Good luck!

Subject: [wisb] Black-bellied Whistling-Duck continues in Dane County
Yesterday evening I saw from eBird reports that the Black-bellied
Whistling-Duck was seen by a couple of birders in the pond on the west side
of CTH KP just north of STH 19, so I decided to give it a second try today.
I watched the pond for about 20 minutes without seeing the duck, so I went
over to Indian Lake and didn't see it there either. I birded the lake area
for about 1.5 hours, and prior to my leaving, another birder told me she had
seen the duck at the CTH KP pond around 7:00 A.M. this morning.
I returned to the pond and was informed by Mary B. that yes, the bird was
there, but as soon as I pulled up it disappeared into the weeds while she
was retrieving her camera. Ok, so I am a jinx for that bird!
I decided to wait it out, and it took about an hour, but then the beautiful
duck appeared and gave great looks while it was preening and feeding. It was
about 280 yards from the road, and another birding couple said they could
see it through binoculars, but if you have a scope, bring it, since they
said the view through my scope was much better than the binoculars.
Also, bring patience in case the bird goes back in the weeds.

Subject: [wisb] Spotted Sandpiper ~ Eating insects at Lakeshore State Park MKE Co. some images...
Hi all,
Birding Lakeshore State Park I came across a Spotted Sandpiper that was
feeding on the rocks on the big lake. Watching this bird for about 15
minutes, it never stopped feeding, catching very small insects and eating
them. It bounced from rock to rock, back and forth, up and down putting on
a great show for me. After a few minutes I left. It was a beautiful day at
the park as they say, with perfect temps with a slight breeze, partly
cloudy.

Subject: [wisb] Shorebirds at the Mead SWA
I did some birding at the Mead State Wildlife Area awhile ago, but only at
South Rice Lake. I was along the road where the drawn down lake butts up
next to the roadside. Highlights include 7 Red-necked Phalaropes and 1
immature Long-billed Dowitcher. Other good shorebirds were several each of
Stilt and Bairds Sandpipers. There has been a Merlin hanging around here
for several weeks now, and I also saw it today chasing the shorebirds
around. Most of the White Pelicans that had been hanging out here were gone
today, but two were present.
If the lake level is still drawn down when birders head northward up to
Jaegerfest in Superior, this might be a good place to stop at when going to
or from this event.

After Pat left, I scoped Indian Lake without seeing the Black-bellied Whistling Duck so I went back to recheck the ponds along CTH KP and Breunig Road- no luck. The other birders I met today hadn’t seen it by the time I left at about 1 P.M., so Pat may have witnessed its departure. Eagles are magnificent birds, but not too helpful when you are looking for rare ducks or shorebirds!
It was a beautiful day and it was enjoyable to see Pat and a couple of other birders along the way.

Hi all,
While birding Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee this morning it was a nice
surprise to see a Sora. This juvenile bird was feeding along the rocks and
in the water at one of the detention ponds. It gave nice views for a few
minutes and then a gull flew over head just above the cattails and the Sora
darted into the cattails a couple of feet away. The gull was probably just
looking for crayfish. I could just see the Sora standing in there on a
little flat stick. One safe haven in the whole area of cattails for this
little one to rest and sit out of sight. It remained in there for minutes
just looking around, preening and I left. It was a beautiful morning out
with perfect temps with a slight breeze, partly cloudy.

Some images of the Sora feeding at the link below if you care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] Black-bellied Whistling Duck - Dane Co
At around 9:30 it was on Indian Lake at the county park (Hwy 19).
It was with 2 mallards on west end when an adult Bald Eagle flew over
spooking the ducks.
The Whistling duck flew right overhead trailing 2 mallards. Neat to see it
fly.
I stuck around looking for warblers & kept scanning the lake but did not
see it return.
The small flock of mallards eventually did. Other birds there: Chestnut
sided Warbler, Black & White, Golden-winged, Common Yellowthroat,
Nashville, Ruby-Crown Kinglet, Ruby-throated Hummers, adult male and
females, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Belted Kingfisher, Catbird, Wood
Peewee, Willow Flycatcher (?), & Turkey Vulture. And Tom Wood got there as
I had to leave so he may have more to report. Thanks to Jim S. for finding
it! Year bird for me.

Subject: [wisb] decent bird migration today in SE Wisconsin
Hello all,
I was at home today doing inside and outside chores. Just like in May, in September I keep a binoculars nearby. Jeremy was correct that now was the time to watch for Warblers at your favorite park. Our yard is not on any body of water, but today we had a Veery, Eastern Wood PeWee, 3 Flycatchers ( either Willow, Alder, or Least ) but pretty sure one was a Least Flycatcher ( it was smaller and was whiter below than the other two flycatchers ), Red-eyed and Philadelphia Vireos, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and for the Warblers, Black-throated Green Warbler, Cape May Warbler, a few Tennessee Warblers, and one gorgeous male Blackburnian Warbler. If these birds were in my yard, a park on a lake or river would have probably been very productive.
This sure made a gloomy early September day more enjoyable.
The local family of Baltimore Orioles is still enjoying our jelly feeders. This is the latest we have ever had our resident Baltimore Orioles still in our yard.
Good Birding,
Bob Matyas
Franklin, WI.

  Thank you for posting this Tom! I saw the bird 2 days ago on the morning of the 2nd. Because freelist server was down my post did not go through. I see the date on this is the 4th (today). I am curious if this bird was spotted this morning (post is dated the 4th), or if the date is off on the post because of the server issue ( & it was spotted on the 3rd).

Good evening,
I spent the afternoon at Lake Park and it was pretty good for warblers. I
had 15 species and 62 total. Best was probably Golden-winged and
Blackburnian.

The last couple days I've had 12 at Warnimont and also 12 at Grant. If you
like warblers, better get out and check your favorite parks!

Subject: [wisb] Great Egrets at Goose Pond Sanctuary
Hi
Great egret numbers are still increasing at Goose Pond Sanctuary in
Columbia County. Fred and Kate Dike, and Tim and Denise Grundler found 75
great egrets on August 31st. Many were sitting on the railroad tracks.

We counted last night with Jim and Chris Locher and had 95 great egrets
(record number for Goose Pond Sanctuary) and 8 great blue herons. The
birds were all in one flock and birders were looking at sunset on Goose
Pond they might not have seen any. If you see the egrets look closely for
snowy egrets. We would like to see them added to the Goose Pond bird list.

From ebird: "The egret flock was mostly in the wetlands on the northwest
part of the west pond around 7:10 p.m. We headed out to count and as
driving to view "the flock" flew in small flocks to the southwest and then
about 50+ in one flock flew southwest. We found the 95 and 8 great blue
herons in "the flats" in shallow water. Usually our "flat" is cropland
planted to corn. However, this year with record water levels there is a lot
of water and probably a lot of salamanders, frogs, and fathead minnows. The
"flat" where the egrets and herons were found is .6 miles southwest of the
center of the "west" pond. Mark and Sue each had a count of 95 egrets using
Locher's scope. "

Before anyone goes rushing off to find the Black-bellied Whistling Duck, that sighting was from 2:00 Tuesday afternoon.  Jim called me at work around 3:30, since he had been trying to relocate it without success after it (and the 200 Mallards it was associating with) took flight and winged off to the south.  He checked a bunch of other flooded fields and ponds in the area (including Indian Lake), but couldn't find it again.  (I suggested he check Shoveler's Sink, where he found another one several years ago.)  I obviously couldn't post it for him, since Wisbirdn was offline.

Anyway, keep your eyes open if you're scoping waterfowl anywhere west of Madison.

Yes, WISBIRDN via Freelists.org <http://freelists.org/> was down. Even an email to staff email address bounced, however, was able to get a message through via their FB page. Apparently their firewall suffered a meltdown but it’s obviously been resolved. Hope to hear back as to why but for now, things seem to be working again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
I see migration has begun in Wisconsin - same here in southeastern Arizona. Presently our hummingbird feeders in the yard are being taken over by migrating Rufous Hummingbirds (mostly young males). Carol and I are now volunteering weekly at Ramsey Canyon TNC property and the big deal here a few days ago was a one-day wonder Blue-winged Warbler. Certainly way off its normal migration route. But then isn’t this part of what makes birding so much fun?

I stopped at the Marsh on Saturday to ride Old Marsh Rd before it closed again. I entered via the Auto Tour. The roads are improved, either resealed or repaired but there aren’t more pull outs as I had expected. There is now a small paved parking area (3 cars maybe) at the Old Marsh Rd stop and wider areas at the last water spread just before leaving. Anyway I did see 1 Glossy Ibis on my ride, 6 Trumpeter Swans, 100+ Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, but very few shorebirds. Habitat looked great in some areas but not many birds. No Black Necked Stilts either and I even checked Hwy 49. Met a few nice Birders out there. Sue from Madison on my way out. And Dianne from Mt Horeb.

Subject: [wisb] Red Knot ~ Lakeshore State Park MKE Co. 9/3/19, some images...
Hi all,
I got a tip this morning that a rare bird for this area, a Red Knot was
seen and reported yesterday at Lakeshore State Park. I made the run down to
the lakefront this morning assuming the bird was not present but something
else could have come in. The juvenile bird was present at the beach area at
the park and gave nice views. It fed, finding things to eat while I was
present taking some photographs. This bird is considered a rare sighting as
the normal range for this species is east and west coasts of North America.
Thanks to Tracy C for finding this bird and getting the word out for others
to try for it. It was partly cloudy early morning with light winds and mild
temps.

A couple images of the Red Knot from this morning at the link below if you
care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] Manitowoc Impound/Mink
My wife and I were in Manitowoc today and spent a little time walking around the impound near the yacht club.  Not a lot there but we did see a small number of Bonaparte gulls, approximately five.  Most of them were floating in the pond next to the dog park.  In the impound there was also a great blue heron fishing for dinner.  A number of cormorants flew around and were feeding in the various waters. There was also what seems to have been a lesser scaup, smallish but totally brown with a hooked end bill.  I think our greatest surprise was to see an American mink.  The story is that there was a mink farm in the area that animal rights activists had raided and that these minks can be found in the area.  Apparently, some have set up home at the impound and the public can see them scurrying along the rocks and along the trail.  We were sitting on the bench when one ran right by us on the path with a small fish in its mouth.  That was a definite first for us.

Subject: [wisb] Lake Park Fall Warbler Walk #2, August 31, 2019
25-30 birders gathered near the Lake Park warming house on this lovely,
sunny, pleasantly cool late summer morning, then birded in leisurely
fashion along the edges of the Locust St. ravine, over the pedestrian
bridge, and out past the golf course to the Wolcott Statue and lion
bridges. Overall the morning was somewhat quiet--the trees were not
brimming with birds bustling about. But nevertheless, there were
sufficient numbers and variety to enable us to amass a quiet respectable
total of 52 species, including 12 species of warblers, mostly single
individuals, hopefully harbingers of many more to come.

At my house in Bayfield County this morning I had 163 warblers of 17 species including my first Blackpolls and lots of Tennessees, Nashvilles, and Redstarts. Also had my first good push of Swainson's Thrushes, a few Pine Siskins, and a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher among some Leasts and migrant E. Wood-Pewee. Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Indigo Buntings, Bobolinks, Cliff Swallows, and others also on the move.

Subject: [wisb] Threats to Birds - Learn More
Birds face many threats to their health, well-being, and survival; some
already exist in nature that humans do not cause or control (storms,
disease, parasites, and predation are major sources of mortality and
injury). But human activity in the modern world has increased the number,
severity, and complexity of anthropogenic, or human-caused threats - not
only to individual birds, but also to populations, regional or local
sub-populations, or entire species or subspecies at differing geographic
scales.

Hello Friends: For some reason, this year has been great for Wrens in our back yard.
It is hard to tell if there are 1 or 2 families in the area.
Here are 4 pictures from an encounter with them this afternoon; lots of chatter going on.


The newest 4 pictures in this file are from today:

Hi
Brand Smith, Mary Hampton and I walked the west half of the Old Marsh Road
this morning. We were disappointed when we spoke with a birder that was
leaving who did not see any ibis. However, when we passed Stony Island
(one mile east of the west parking lot) we found the ibis family 400 feet
north of the road. Other species seen included 9 trumpeter swans, 449
blue-winged teal, 473 mallards, 230 American coots, 11 black-necked stilts,
294 white pelicans, 9 great egrets, 1 black-crowned night heron (seen by
Mary), and 1 peregrine falcon that was hunting.

A very good area to visit before Sunday. I am looking forward to visiting
again with Sue.

Just a reminder that Saturday, Aug. 31 will be your last chance to hike or
bike out on the Old Marsh Rd. at Horicon NWR.  It's closed to public access
after August, until the entire refuge opens to hiking in December (when
there probably won't be any shorebirds or bitterns or ibises around...)

Subject: [wisb] Re: Comment Regarding: Bobolink Dispersal & Migration
East CE block on 8/4/19.  There were 14 blackbirds sitting in a tree next to the marsh.  I thought they were all females or young red-wings but I didn't look very closely st those brown, streaky, poorly lit birds, tallying them as age and sex unknown.  I thought it was odd that there were no males in the entire bunch.  They were not vocalizing. I never thought of bobolinks in a marsh.
I can't turn back the clock but I can learn for the next such siting.  Would an unstreaked belly and unmarked back of the head be appropriate field marks for bobolinks?  I wasn't close enough to see bill color.  The silhouettes might show a shorter tail but I can't tell for certain from my field guides.  I know they are smaller than a red-wing but the 2 species need to be near each other for that characteristic to be applied.

Robert,  I agree with your assessment on bobolinks. Back in late August, 1966 or 67, I was banding passerines on Pt. Sable on Green Bay. I use to get out there after dark on Friday nights and get my nets set up for dawn the next day. Well one Saturday morning at dawn, I was amazed to see thousands of Bobolinks sitting on the tops of every cattail in a large enclosed marsh. As you indicated it seemed like mostly all were females until I found a few molting males.  This was and still is the most Bobolinks I've ever seen at one time.

On several occasions In late May 1976 while banding shorebirds at dawn in Atkinson Marsh at the lower end of Green Bay we witnessed large flocks of several hundred birds coming south off the bay to drop down into the surrounding marsh. This reverse migration, I assumed were birds that were caught over water as dawn approached and retreated to a large coastal marsh for the day.

t (which was beautiful). I counted at least 40. It was hard to tell because some were on the other side of the trees. We also saw 3 fly in from the south. And there were about 5 Great blue herons. 2 of them were roosting on a tree next to the east pond. Also 2 Sandhill cranes digging in the mud on the west side of the west pond. 2 Pied-billed grebes on the east pond and several ducks.

Hi all,
This evening we noticed a good concentration of egrets roosting at the
northwest corner of the west pond.  We began counting them about 7:30 p.m.
until after sunset.  We watched from Prairie Lane and also from the hilltop
above the oak savanna which overlooks the pond. Terry and Nancy Thompson
from Poynette joined us for the count.  At least 12 egrets flew in from the
southwest and probably were not feeding at the pond before roosting.

Our high count tonight was a record 55 great egrets!  There were also 10
great blue herons or more but we were focused on counting the egrets.  The
previous high ebird count at the Goose Pond "hot spot" before this year was
10 on October 16, 2015 by Kyle Lindemer.

In March we had a record high water water level and the wetlands are still
very high with probably 180 acres flooded compared to 60 acres in the pond
in most years.  We believe the egrets and herons are feeding on salamanders
that will soon leave the water, frogs and fathead minnows.

Near the Franklin landfill, you can see them doing the same thing.
Sometimes 30-40 just sitting in the field, that's not freshly touched or
anything. Last time I saw them like that, some were laying down, some were
standing and others just walking around. There were other birds too, not
just the vultures. I didn't see them doing anything, other than just
hanging out.

Subject: [wisb] Bobolink Dispersal & Migration
Good day:
On 8/15/19, Tom Schultz found several BOBOLINK
individuals on Townline Rd. in the Buena Vista Marsh near Plover.

I enjoyed the spectacle of seeing 30-40 individuals, but, as Tom noted: no males were present.

In response, I have been reading, including the account for this species via the subscription I retain with
Birds of N. America Online.

An excerpt from the “Migration” chapter states:

“Some birds depart breeding areas late Jul–early Aug, apparently congregating in freshwater or coastal marshes where Prebasic molt is completed.
However, some males may begin staging as early as the first few days of July.

In turn, based on the above excerpt, I wonder if any Wisconsin birders wish to provide comment on their recent July & August observations of Bobolink?
You saw them in breeding/nesting territory in July & August? Or in non-breeding territory as potential dispersers……? Or perhaps true migration happens after
the “intermediate staging” ground behavior occurs where a prebasic molt is completed….(?)

As a sidebar note, I checked eBird records for Kentucky & TN that are just south of this species’ southern-most breeding territory. NO July & August records
were present, but it’s still possible breeding Bobolink individuals in WI may either remain as dispersing individuals and/or migrate south, but do not reach KY/TN
until September and beyond (?)…..Thanks in advance for any thoughts….

Regards, Daniel

Subject: [wisb] Sailbirding at the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center MKE Co. 8/21/19, some images...
Hi all,
Another opportunity came up for me to get on a Sailbirding adventure at the
Milwaukee Community Sailing Center and I did not pass it up. It was a
beautiful day, low winds to start with mostly sunny skies. Sailor Carl
Eisenberg lead the group with excellent birders Jennifer Ambrose and Lorri
Howski, along with myself. We headed out and had a heck of a great time! 10
species of birds seen along with breakwall. I don’t have numbers on each
species yet but there were large numbers of Double-crested Cormorants and
Caspian Terns along with gulls. Some of the species seen were Sanderlings,
Great Blue Heron, Least Sandpipers, Double-crested Cormorants, Caspian
Terns, Herring Gulls, Spotted Sandpiper and Ring-billed Gulls.

A link to some of the birds and action from the day at the link below if
you care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] Re: Eastside Chimney Swifts question

We (several of us with the Wisconsin Chimney Swift Working Group) hope everyone will get out to try to pinpoint swift roosts in the next couple of weeks (for those in southern Wisconsin, you can keep looking until well into October). It’s an extraordinary spectacle to watch!

Please report any swifts you find, including the exact location, to eBird. Here is a quick guide to finding roost chimneys and how to report them: https://www.wiswifts.org/report-chimney-swift-sightings/ <https://www.wiswifts.org/report-chimney-swift-sightings/>

Thanks for your help! There is still a LOT to find out about where the swifts roost while on migration.

All,
Followed up on an eBird rare bird alert from Alec Hopping and am currently
(5:40pm) looking at two basic plumage adult Red-necked Phalaropes at Ashton
K Pond just north of Middleton. They’re foraging in the middle of the pond
as reported.

Good luck if you chase.

Look for these sightings (as they get reported) in eBird.
If you are not familiar with how to do that, send me a backchannel message.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Dead bird ID
It seems more likely that this bird died from some sort of trauma, such as
by colliding with an overhead power line. A sidewalk wouldn't seem to be
proper habitat for a night-heron, which is typically found in wetlands.
That would seem to be a more typical place to find one that is sick (such as
from West Nile).

Night-herons are usually fairly active at night (hence their name), so it
may have collided with something during the night, or at dawn or dusk. Are
there any overhead wires anywhere near to where the dead bird was found?

West Nile Virus maybe? There have been reports of birds dying from that. The

Subject: [wisb] Canada Jay, Red Crossbills, BW Hawks ~ Sheltered Valley Road, etc. Forest Co. 8/19/19, some images...
Hi all,
I saw a recent report of the Canada Jay and Boreal Chickadee species in
Forest County Wisconsin. I had the urge to try for these species once again
to get them on my Wisconsin life list. An earlier winter trip a couple of
years ago for these species was a bust. Mike Wanger wanted to join me as he
needed the Boreal Chickadee. We met at 2:30 am in Milwaukee and made the
run up. Arriving at around 7am, it was 48 degrees, clear as a bell, quiet
as a mouse and it pretty much remained like that for that till noon. We
birded up and down Sheltered Valley and Pine River Roads, and a few other
locations, know areas for these species to be seen. Every 5-10 minutes or
so we would park, get out and walk up and down the road quietly for 10-30
minutes, look and listen. After and hour or so we found a Canada Jay in a
Tamarack tree a little ways off the road. It only hung around for a second
after spotting it. I got a horrible shot of the Canada Jay, but was enough
for a ID. We came across some Red Crossbills eating cone seeds on a
Tamarack tree. Two juvenile Broad-winged Hawks put on a show at one
location, they were looking for food. We saw a few small flocks of warblers
feeding, they were moving around. It was amazing that we both could walk a
ways out on a bog on a possible deer trail and there were no mosquitoes or
flies! It was a exciting day for the both of us with a total of 34 species
for the day! No Boreal Chickadee was seen or heard, I guess it will be
another trip another day.

A couple of images from the trip along with Mike's ebird report on what we
saw at this link if you care to view them:

C) Nighthawk observations in autumn migration begin now. Although they may
pass over your position almost anywhere, if you are near the lakeshore or a
coastline (for example, at our hawkwatch platform), you may see larger
numbers on some evenings. Start watching about an hour to 90 minutes before
sunset.
Here's an example from such an evening, in August of 2013:

If you've never seen it: https://youtu.be/EjhKfM1FHEM

A noteworthy phenomenon sometimes paired with these late August dates is a
strong movement of Cedar Waxwings (often an early fall migrant).

Good morning,
The US fish and wildlife has released their 2019 duck breeding surveys from
May and June. You can see the overall numbers and click on each specific
duck, if you wish. It's at the link below. Thought some of you might be
interested in this. Have a great day.

Joe, this bird is a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron. They certainly look
very different from an adult.

I wonder what happened to it?

A friend sent me this photo of a dead bird she found on her sidewalk. It
looks like a young bittern (sort of). Can anyone help me out with this?

Subject: [wisb] Great Egrets at Goose Pond Sanctuary - Columbia County
Hi all,
This evening we noticed a good concentration of egrets roosting at the
northwest corner of the west pond. We began counting them about 7:30 p.m.
until after sunset. We watched from Prairie Lane and also from the hilltop
above the oak savanna which overlooks the pond. Terry and Nancy Thompson
from Poynette joined us for the count. At least 12 egrets flew in from the
southwest and probably were not feeding at the pond before roosting.

Our high count tonight was a record 55 great egrets! There were also 10
great blue herons or more but we were focused on counting the egrets. The
previous high ebird count at the Goose Pond "hot spot" before this year was
10 on October 16, 2015 by Kyle Lindemer.

In March we had a record high water water level and the wetlands are still
very high with probably 180 acres flooded compared to 60 acres in the pond
in most years. We believe the egrets and herons are feeding on salamanders
that will soon leave the water, frogs and fathead minnows.

Subject: [wisb] Roosts of Chimney Swifts Waukesha
After dinner on Saturday, I was in downtown Waukesha and I heard the
familiar chittering of the zig-zag flying Chimney Swift posse. Cathy H.,
from Ben Goss Bird Club had reported seeing Chimney Swifts flying into a
chimney of the Waukesha Historical Society recently, so I found a comfy
spot and awaited sunset. There were 15-20 birds skittering around, and a
couple scouts went into the chimney and as it got later and to sunset, they
just kept coming and I was surprised that there were over 500 entering to
roost by the time it was almost dark. There were a couple of Night Hawks
flying around, the first of the season for me. Last year much lesser
numbers of swifts were using private home chimneys west of the main
Library, and before that year, a chimney by the Social Security Building.
These will need to verified to see if they are still roosting locations.
Sunday evening, Sandy P, Mary & Meredith C. and I met at the Old Norris
School in Okauchee on Wisconsin Avenue. Last year the chimney on this
semi-abandoned 100-year-old-school had nights of over 4000 swifts entering
this roost. Here again, we started out with 20-ish swifts flying around,
and over 30 minutes, about 20 went in. Then as sunset arrived, more and
more started entering until we quit counting with dark falling fast, with
1000 Chimney Swifts totaled. This group had more of the
swirling-circling-flight pattern around the chimney that seems to occur in
these events, than at the Historical Society, they were more scattered in
their flight.

There will be a number of Swift Nights Out occurring around the state, if
you have a chance to observe or find a roost, please do so! It can be very
exciting wonderment at this process. If you have a substantial "Roost"
that's occurring, would you please let me know so that this information can
be shared with others in the Chimney Swift Working Group?
It would be good if we can locate and identify places & chimneys that are
being used for this migratory extravaganza.
(Using eBird so far hasn't allowed for finding large numbers of swifts in
roosts. We know of large roosts in Janesville, Madison, Whitefish Bay,
Waukesha, Delafield, Menomonee Falls, Okauchee, Oconomowoc, and hope to
hear of more locations, and encourage eBirding as much as possible for this
data.)
Thanks to all!
