Subject: [Maine-birds] Horned larks
I hiked Clary Hill today (gorgeous!) and was surprised to find a group of
13 horned larks. I wasn't expecting to see them there--let alone this
time of year. Are they common there?

Subject: [Maine-birds] Black Skimmers, Caspian Terns, and mystery Empid, Reid State Park, 9/22
Hi all,
Reid State Park in Georgetown gets on the BLACK SKIMMER scoreboard with 7 this morning, perhaps birds that have been added to the growing flock at Biddeford.  Additionally, I had 5 CASPIAN TERNS, four of which were feeding for a while at the mouth of the Little River. One juvenile AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER was flying around as well.
But the "one that got away" was what was most likely an ACADIAN FLYCATCHER that I very briefly glimpsed in the treetops (typical foraging location for Acadians as circumstantial evidence) about 1/4mile down Todd's Point Road from the entrance (at the second clearing on the left that you can see the water from). I just couldn't get a good enough look to confirm and it did not vocalize. If it wasn't an Acadian, it was REALLY good.
-Derek

Cornell Merlin app confirms this little guy is uncommon in these parts. Certainly never had one stay here for over a week. Very vocal scolding even the roosters. Likes to hang out near the veggie garden close to the bracken and aspens and damp vernal pool.

We're at Lake Pemaquid and are being serenaded by this very rhythmic call
at the lake edge.

Starts after dark and went on all night long.

I can't find a frog or bird that matches.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Western Tanager update
It was last seen in the mixed pine-oak area on the Saco River side of the
tracks, unfortunately we had to leave because my dog was getting
overheated. There is a trail that goes down to the river off to the left
where more water frontage can be viewed, but along the trail itself is
where I usually see the most birds. Posting from my phone I neglected to
mention that it did have a dark back and two light wing bars (which made me
think it was a fall Baltimore Oriole at initial glance, although I quickly
realized the proportions were wrong, along with the bill). Very yellow
bird with a contrasting orange-pink bill.

There was also some warbler activity there this morning, although it had
subsided when we left. There were at least 20 Yellow-rumped in the trees
and at 2 Tennessee along with other un-ID'd warblers in the lower
vegetation (focusing more on trying to find the Tanager, so had to ignore
some of them). Ingalls Pond is an interesting habitat because the
expansive scrub vegetation there is almost entirely buttonbush, with very
few cattails growing anywhere.

Jeff Webb and I just had a female Western Tanager about 1/4 mile down the

body, dark gray- blackish wings and a pink thick bill. It was under the
canopy at the top of an oak along the path, then flew into the shade of
another oak near the Saco River side where we are trying to relocate it.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Additional Highlights This Week, 9/14-20
Hi all,
My non-Sandy Point observations of note over the past seven days included:
- 6 Black-crowned Night-Herons, Royal River, Yarmouth, 9/14 (with Saturday Morning Birdwalk group).
- 2 juvenile WESTERN SANDPIPERS, 3 AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHERS, 1 adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, etc, Hill's Beach, Biddeford, 9/15.
- 1 CLOUDLESS SULFUR (my second of the summer), Hill's Beach, Biddeford, 9/15 (with Pat Moynahan).
- 1 juvenile WESTERN SANDPIPER, Biddeford Pool Beach, 9/15 (with Pat Moynahan; in hindsight, this was likely one of the individuals that I had at Hill's Beach earlier).
- 2 ad. LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS, Pine Point Beach, Scarborough, 9/16 (with Jeannette).
- 10 species of warblers in our Pownal yard on 9/17.
- 2 adult and 1 juvenile SANDHILL CRANES, Mayall Rd, Gray/New Gloucester, 9/19. Pair have been frequenting these fields in the fall for at least 6 years but were late in arriving this year. Now, we know why. This is the first year they showed up with a juvenile.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Large backyard warbler fallout
After last night's borderline frost, a warm morning and sun on the backyard
hillside brought out a large, active wave of warblers that included 1
Orange-crowned and 3 Tennessee, and lasted for at least 35 minutes. To be
honest I was somewhat overwhelmed by the numbers, which reminded me of an
Evergreen Cemetery fallout. I tried mostly to follow and get a good
handle on individual birds rather than see them all, which would have been
impossible for one person anyway. 3 or 4 birders could definitely have
handled the job better. The birds seemed to especially like the wild grape
bushes on the hillside, which have plenty of Japanese beetles.

There has been some consistently good days lately for observing migration on Sears Island, Waldo Co. A good number of vireos this morning with five species, including Yellow-throated Vireo (YTVI). 14-20 species of warblers per day have been my counts over the past week. A dozen other birders besides myself enjoyed the show today. I’d encourage anyone who can to be there at dawn following a night with northerly winds.

Good Birding,

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Epic Sandy Point Morning Flight, 9/17
Far from odd, it’s a far-too-often occurrence at unmarked high-tensions lines where they cross water. Collisions are regular at Sandy Point, especially with flocks of Double-crested Cormorants, but few are as violent as today’s. I also see Bald Eagles, Ospreys, and gulls hit. Most fly off, but I have seen cormorants killed or injured on multiple occasions, and have found everything from Ruddy Ducks to a Great Blue Heron dead below.

And I am only there on the clear days without fog or precipitation.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Epic Sandy Point Morning Flight, 9/17
Hi all,
An absolutely outstanding morning flight passed over and through Sandy Point Beach, Cousin's Island, Yarmouth this morning. After a clear pre-dawn, clouds were rapidly moving in, which again impacted identification. But today, the 2nd-all-time-highest unidentified tally was simply due to overwhelming volume: I'm just not good enough to sort through them that quickly by sight and/or sound. And at times, I just counted batches and sat back an enjoyed the show, leaving ID for only the low birds. A special thank you to Matthew who was late for school in order to enjoy the flight and monitor the shrubs below me.

I was there from 8:20-12:00 this morning and had no luck with it either. I
feel like I know my way around Dennysville now, did a pretty thorough
combing of the area. Even came back after a run over to West Quoddy Head
and made stops along the river and at any open fields I could find. If it
has left the area, I'm wondering how much the abundant crow population
might have had to do with its decision to do so. They were worked up about
something or other almost the entire time I was there.

Ran into a pretty good mixed flock at the end of Salmon Club Road, will be
putting together an eBird list to post as soon as possible.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Mississippi Kite Nest Summary in NH - 2019
This summer, New Hampshire had 3 known nest territories for Mississippi
Kites and 2 chicks successfully fledged.  This is (at least) the 11th
consecutive year that kites (between 1 and 3 pairs) have nested in New
Hampshire in this isolated, rare, nesting colony.

DURHAM - The"Madbury Road" territory was first noted in 2017 and last
year's nest successfully fledged one chick.  This year, they moved the
nest down the street a couple hundred yards, and once again, the pair
chose to nest in a white pine tree in someone's back yard.  And once
again, the home owners were very gracious and welcoming to birders. 
This nest was visited by countless numbers of birders and apparently
there were no "major" issues with birders, other than some minor
trespassing.  Incubation started roughly June 11 and hatching occurred
roughly July 11.  The nest successfully fledged a single chick.  The
chick was still being taken care of by the adults at least as late as
August 27th, and possibly on September 2nd.

NEWMARKET - This is the 2nd year in a row for this pair at this spot and
last year they fledged one chick.  This year, they chose to nest in the
same tree, high in an oak tree I believe.  As last year, in a front yard
along a driveway in a residential neighborhood.  I've tried to keep this
territory a bit more secretive to discourage lots of visitors.  It's not
in a very photogenic location anyway. Incubation started roughly June
7and hatching occurred roughly July 7.  The nest successfully fledged a
single chick.  The chick was still being taken care of by the adults at
least as late as September 1st, but they may have left the region
shortly after that.

STRATHAM - This territory was first noted in 2017 and last year's nest
successfully fledged one chick.  This year, they moved the nest down the
street about a hundred yards, but this year the pair moved from an oak
tree into a white pine tree, high up.  Again, the pair chose to nest in
someone's yard along the driveway, but the nest was not visible from the
road and the location was kept a secret. Incubation started on June 15
or perhaps earlier, but the NEST FAILED.  On or around July 1st, the
pair abandoned incubation.  The cause of the failure is uncertain, but
there were some severe thunderstorms the evening prior to the failure. 
This nest was in a spindly white pine that swayed severely with strong
winds, and I suspect the egg was lost from the wind during the storm.

OTHER TERRITORIES - Nothing conclusive. There were additional adult
birds seen at the nest in Durham (especially when Ed Norton videotaped 3
adults in the nest!!) and another at the nest in Newmarket, so it's at
least possible that there was another 4th undiscovered nest out there.  
I thought the sighting and photo by Deb Powers of a kite chasing an
Osprey in Durham about a mile from the nest site on Madbury Road was
significant.  And there were some suspicious sightings in Newmarket
which may indicate a second pair somewhere; however, Jane and I did a
lot of searching, but no luck.

A few tidbits I've observed over the 11 years the kites have nested in NH:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* 100% of the nests found in NH have been in residential subdivisions
with mature trees.  Nests are almost always in front, side, or rear
yards of homes!!!  The birds are oblivious to anything going on below
them whether it be dogs barking, lawn mowers, kids screaming, or hordes
of birders watching them.

* Tree types have varied and have been found in oak, pine, maple, and
hickory at least.  But the nest is always quite high.  Sometimes in
outer branches vulnerable to wind.

* Of all of the nests I have ever heard about in 11 years, I have never
seen, nor heard about any more than a single head poking up out of the
nest.  It would appear that the kites in NH only lay a single egg!!! 
This seems interesting, since I believe they normally lay 1 to 3 eggs in
their normal range.  Is this a modification in their egg laying behavior
to accommodate a shorter breeding season this far north?

* Food items I've seen have been mostly dragonflies and cicadas. One
memorable observation was when we saw one eating a bat.  And this year,
we saw an adult feed a chick a fledged juvenile Eastern Bluebird.  The
first bird we've seen being eaten by a kite.

* Adult care of the single chick continues right up into early September
(or nearly 1 month after fledging) .  It seems like a long process and I
wonder if the adults migrate with the chick as they head south?

A few photos of mine over the years:

From: 'Doug Hitchcox' via Maine birds <maine-birds...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] SWALLOW-TAILED KITE - Dennysville, 15 Sep
This morning, Chris Bartlett, Woody Gillies, Fyn Kynd, and I were able to find a SWALLOW-TAILED KITE that had been reported in Dennysville (Washington County), along Route 86. Locals today shared that the bird has been seen daily since 7 September. Throughout our observation, the kite seemed to be favoring hunting over Denny’s River, catching and consuming aerial insects (apparently large dragonflies) on the wing, a promising sign it may stick around until the weather gets too cold for that food source. The bird made multiple circuits from the bridge at 86/King Street (near Sawmill Drive - Private) and toward the intersection of “The Lane” and Main Street. Traffic along Route 86 was light (as expected on a Sunday morning) but drivers were traveling quite fast so I don’t recommend birding from the Route 86 roadside. There is parking on Main Street along Denny’s River (https://goo.gl/maps/3i7bs6Z8G1N1VXy26), the Sunrise Trail bridge is parallel with the 86 bridge, with the Snowmobile/ATV club nearby (https://goo.gl/maps/NTyQkhvGBini4g9H6), and the Dennysville Cemetery (https://goo.gl/maps/EyJsnW2b2hpJ7cb26) is fairly elevated and should also have potential view points. Locals were extremely friendly and helpful but please use good judgement in parking and be respectful of private roads/property.

The timing of arrival of this bird is suspiciously correlated with the passage of Hurricane Dorian but there has been a northward push of Swallow-tailed Kites over the past month. Several kites have been in Illinois, including central (24 Aug - 4 Sep) and northern (22 Aug) parts of that state, central (18 Aug - 4 Sep) and western (10 Sep) Ohio, eastern Pennsylvania (16 Aug - 1 Sep), and recently southern Quebec (12 Sep), so perhaps this bird is part of a larger movement occurring.

Also, Will Nichols passed along a second-hand report (with photos) of two Black Skimmers that were seen in Addison. The exact location and time/date are unknown at this point but good to know there are more along the Maine coast.

(Bar Harbor Pelagic report and eBird lists coming soon!)

Good birding,

Subject: [Maine-birds] Buxton 2019 Arrival Data
Dear All

Seems like Tuesday evening was a big migration day for us. Wednesday morning’s forests were very quiet with most Catbirds, Red-eyed Vireos, Song Sparrows, Phoebes, many Bluebirds and our Kestrel family all left.

For those interested, my 2019 arrival data sheet is here <https://www.dropbox.com/s/g78v664q5kk5u5n/Arrival%20Data%20Sheet%202019.pdf?dl=0>.

As in past years, no Thrashers, Towhees, Hermit Thrushes or Pewees heard or seen. I positively ID’d a pair of Veerys on at least half a dozen occasions over the Spring and Summer in the same place but never heard them sing once. Not sure if this is at all typical but struck me as odd since I normally hear them along with the Wood Thrushes. Bobolinks back for the first time in a number of years along with the House Wren, also not seen or heard for a few years.

A few notable firsts this year: Blue-headed Vireo, Bay-breasted Warbler and Wilson’s Warbler, all likely passing through. Indigo Bunting, as usual, very late arrival.

Cheers

Subject: [Maine-birds] Eastern Trail, Scarborough: Phalarope - yes. Skimmers/avocets - no
Hi,

The Wilson's Phalarope was at the pannes this morning.

No sign of the skimmers or avocets, but it is mid-tide, so there are a lot of places they could be.

From: RALPH ELDRIDGE <lightrae1...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
We faired well from Dorian, being as we were on the western, or rainy side
of the storm, rather than the eastern, windy side.
We saw a few hours of heavy rain but the wind barely reached 40 knots.
As a result, very few storm-carried birds materialized in this area, unlike
parts of Nova Scotia and NFLD.
The only birds that showed here that I can say were storm-carried from the
south were probable CAVE SWALLOWS on Tuesday, September 10th, travelling
with some BARN SWALLOWS (couldn't quite rule out the similar species). On
Thursday I confirmed 2 Cave Swallows and 7 Barn Swallows.
On Friday, September 13th, I had 1 confirmed and 2 probable Cave Swallows
and 4 Barn Swallows. (2 or 3 Barn Swallows showed up just now, late
Saturday.)

Also, on Sunday, September 8th, behind the storm, I glimpsed a very large
tern that could have been a ROYAL TERN but the sighting was so fleeting
that it's only conjecture.

As the first feelers of the storm touched us late on Friday, September 6th,
an ARCTIC TERN settled in to roost on our helicopter pad. In spite of being
disturbed several times, it stayed into Saturday morning when horizontal
rain across that exposed location pushed it to find a more secure perch.
Its behavior leads me to think that it was one of our own Terns which
didn't migrate with the others, rather than a bird brought northward by the
weather.

A WHIMBREL also arrived as the storm was ramping up. After several low
circles, including a pass just yards from me, it disappeared but I had the
feeling that it continued its journey, rather than landing on the island.

At the height of the wind and rain I was surprised to see a MERLIN actively
hunting. Youth? Inexperience? Desperation? Or an individual that found an
unorthodox method? We can only speculate, but, whatever the reason, it's
hard to imagine having your eyeballs hit by big water drops at well over
100 mph, much less skimming the ground and avoiding obstacles under those
conditions.

Post-Dorian, we have had a steady trickle of migrants, primarily yellowish
olive drab species with a liberal sprinkling of greenish, brownish and
greyish drab Guess-Me Birds.
They are taking full advantage of the abundance of insects amid the carpet
of PURPLE ASTER which is in full bloom. Most of the birds only emerge from
the thick cover very briefly so keeping track of an individual long enough
to make an identification is challenging.

Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I decided to spend a bit of Standing-Still Time
out in some of the most viewable Aster concentrations and IDed YELLOW,
MAGNOLIA, CAPE MAY, BLACK THROATED GREEN, BLACK THROATED BLUE, YELLOW
RUMPED, PINE, BAY BREASTED, BLACK & WHITE and HOODED WARBLERS, along with
NORTHERN PARULAS, OVENBIRD, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH and COMMON YELLOWTHROAT.
(Note: Just discovered what appears to be a BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER that
somehow managed to get inside our fuel storage building. No windows or open
doors so I can only assume that it squirmed through some tiny opening in
pursuit of an insect.
Nevertheless, I'll try to capture and extradite it after dark. Fortunately,
the current cloud cover will help to mask the full moon. With 8 large
skylights in the roof, a clear full moon would make it too light inside the
building to facilitate a capture.)

After only a couple of earlier, pre-storm FLICKERS, Thursday and Friday
produced a couple dozen. Hard to get a better count because of occasional
KESTRELS, MERLINS and a couple HARRIERS that kept the prey birds close to
cover most of the time.
Those pesky raptors seem to be moving through fairly quickly with only 1 or
2 here at any moment but almost always at least one somewhere on the island.

Most notable on Friday was the (finally) influx of RUBY THROATED
HUMMINGBIRDS. Initially I thought that there were only a few scattered
around the island but with evening approaching I was seeing dozens, many of
them feeding in the "understory" of lower-growing Asters and spending a lot
of time just sitting between hectic territorial (?) chases with other
Hummers.

Butterflies have also picked up since the storm, although it's still mostly
MONARCHS.
So, while trying to shoot the unpredictable Hummers, I took advantage of a
few co-operative butterflies.
One of the 3 ANGLEWINGS that I saw decided to settle and feed about 6 feet
in front of me with the light just beginning to turn good. Other than
swatting MOSQUITOES, my attention was completely on that Flutterby. Soon,
as will happen, I was snapped back to the wider scene. There was a Hummer
no more than 6 inches from my eye, hovering, as if to say, "Pay attention
to me."
Of course I know that I was never in any danger but it's just a bit
disconcerting to suddenly realize that there's a flying needle pointed
right at your eyeball.

Having planned on being out for less time as well as staying in more open
areas, I neglected to apply any insect repellant. Consequently, I ended up
calling it quit when the Mosquitoes seemed to be joying themselves more
than I was.
As a side note: I've made reference to island insects from time to time but
mosquitoes are now a bane.
What ever the reason; weather, temperature or something else, mosquitoes
are now very, very heavy on MSI. That wouldn't be especially notable except
that for the first 18 or 19 years out here I never saw or heard tell of a
mosquito on the island!! They simple didn't exist.

There have been a few bird species adding variety recently but represented
by just one, two or three individuals: 3 young CEDAR WAXWINGS still hanging
around after 6 days; 2 separate DICKCISSELS, first a female and then a dull
male a few days later; a single drab BOBOLINK; 2 widely separated EASTERN
PHOEBES; a single RED WINGED BLACKBIRD; a scattered WOOD PEWEE; random
flycatchers.

SAVANNAH SPARROWS are still the birds in greatest quantity, although I have
the impression that some may have departed. However, I saw some newly
minted Savannahs this week, apparently representing at least two different
families. I assume that they are at least second broods and quite possibly
even third broods.

Our patio Savannahs were joined briefly on Thursday and again on Friday by
a pale BALTIMORE ORIOLE. It seemed to be on a strictly carnivorous diet and
completely ignored both grape jelly and oranges.

The patio crew has also been hosting LARK SPARROWS since pre-Dorian.
I confirmed 4 individuals, including one bright rufus adult. For the past
several days it seems that there are only two sub-adults. They started out
quite belligerent towards each other but quickly reverted to their typical
habit of hanging together without conflict. (Except when one found an huge
grub and declined to share.)

Gulls continue roosting on the island with numbers reaching several
thousand. I haven't attempted anything more that a loose estimate but they
sure make a mighty cloud when our semi-resident EAGLE decides to check the
neighbourhood.

Other aquatic birds are unimpressive, although DC CORMORANTS are beginning
to pass in small, apparently migrating flocks. A few DCs are hanging around
for a bit of feeding, as are perhaps 2 dozen COMMON EIDERS.

No HARLEQUINS or PURPLE SANDPIPERS yet but likely pretty soon.

Shorebirds still have representation with a handful of migrant
SEMIPALMATED & LEAST SANDPIPERS and a couple (possibly resident) SPOTTED
SANDPIPERS. Other shorebirds certainly are moving through, largely
unnoticed, like the Whimbrel that just over-flew the lawn and disappeared
somewhere over the southern end of the island. Landed? Kept moving?
impossible to tell.

Back at the Asters: MONARCH BUTTERFLIES were steady and in good number all
week.
Last evening I watched as first one and then others began looking for
night-roosts around the buildings. By sunset I had marked several locations
and I checked around after full dark.
I found 23 Monarchs perched on the sides of buildings with 17 of those on 2
sides of our house.

We've all seen images of the millions of Monarchs in their winter
aggregations and some have visited those sites. We're told that those
gatherings used to be much, much greater and that they continue to shrink.
I have absolutely no doubt about our immense loss. That pitiful handful of
Monarchs clinging to buildings last night reminded me about the numbers
that we could experience up here just a few decades ago.
I recall in the 1970s, on Partridge Island, when conditions were right,
there were warm, near-calm days when the air was literally filled with tens
of thousands of migrating Monarchs and I remember seeing a 30 foot willow
tree with branches draped and bowed with night-clustering butterflies. Not
Mexico perhaps, but a damn good facsimile.

LEACH'S STORM PETRELS are reaching the fledging stage and possibly some
have already departed.
I checked two chicks on Thursday and found one with only a few wisps of
down while the other was about 95% feathered.

The PUFFINS are effectively gone. I've seen just enough to make me think
that no more than 3 active nests remain.
I haven't see a Puffling around the house for almost 2 weeks.
All in all, the Puffins and the other Alcids seem to have had a decent
year.
Eiders and Spotted Sandpipers also did okay and Savannah Sparrows would
seem to be at or above average.
Combined with the Tern's good summer, I'd say that MSI is closing a fairly
successful breeding season.

Hi all,

My observations of note over the past seven days included the following:
- it was a very good week for migrant Cape May Warblers as they were rather widespread for me, including our Pownal yard. Three birds of three different plumages in one tree at Evergreen Cemetery on 9/7 (with Saturday Morning Birdwalk) was particularly fun.
- 5 SANDHILL CRANES, McNeil Road, Fryeburg Harbor, 9/8 (with Birds on Tap - Roadtrip! tour group).
- 236 migrant raptors led by 203 Broad-winged Hawks and other migrants highlighted by 3 late PURPLE MARTINS, Mount Cutler, Hiram, 9/10 (with Jeannette). More details and the hawk count here: https://mebirdingfieldnotes.blog/2019/09/11/mt-cutler-in-hiram-a-new-fall-hawkwatching-hotspot/
- impressive diversity of migrants including multiple Cape May and Bay-breasted Warblers and 1 MOURNING WARBLER, Old Town House Park, North Yarmouth, 9/11.
- 1 late Glossy Ibis, Dunstan Landing, Scarborough Marsh, 9/12.
- 2 continuing AMERICAN AVOCETS, 1 juvenile WILSON'S PHALAROPE, 1 late-ish juv. Little Blue Heron, 4 Whimbrels, etc, Eastern Road Trail, Scarborough Marsh, 9/12.
- 1 FORSTER’S TERN and 1 American Pipit (FOF), Popham Beach State Park, Phippsburg, 9/13 (with Dan Nickerson).
- 1 RED PHALAROPE, 1 juv LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, and 507 Northern Gannets, Cap’n Fish Whale Watch, Boothbay Harbor, 9/13 (with Dan Nickerson and Angela Woodside).

Hello Maine Birders:

The number of migrants on Monhegan Island today was underwhelming but there
was plenty of fun to be had and decent diversity.

Northern Gannets plunging near shore and Merlins racing all over the island
were the behavioral highlights.

Notable species encountered included: a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
(photo here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S59706097), a White-eyed
Vireo found by Steve Schenk (sp?) -- thank you, a Lark Sparrow, a
Dickcissel and a Philadelphia Vireo.

Warbler species of note included: Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, Wilson's,
Blackburnian, Cape May and Prairie.

Good birding,
Eric

Two lesser black-backed gulls on Laudholm Beach gave me a new continent
bird this afternoon. They were hanging with more than 100 black-backed and
herring gulls (and 1 ring-bill).

Possibly more exciting was having a cloudless sulphur (butterfly) glide
right past me just before I reached the beach. It was following the trail
inland when it passed me in the marsh. I gave chase but lost it. I don't
know how up-to-date the page is, but Maine Butterfly Survey says rare stray
not seen in the state since 1995. It's a late-season wanderer from the
south. Keep watch, coastal birders!

Oops...forgot to post this on Monday.

A moderate flight passed over and through Sandy Point Beach, Cousin’s Island, Yarmouth this am. It was lighter than expected given the density of the radar last night, but with near-calm winds all night, there just wasn’t much drift offshore. Can we please get some sustained northwesterly winds up in here?

Just went back out as I heard some activity. It turned out to be
White-Breasted Nuthatches, but i noticed a high flyer rising on the
thermals from the hill. Lately these have almost exclusively been
Broad-Winged Hawks, but in this case it was an Osprey climbing high and
heading west.

Also could see the some of the movement from the earlier group up in the
woods heading up the hill.

Cheers!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Warblers and Vireos and Flycatchers in Cumberland.
Hey all,
Just curious if my Sandhill Crane post the other day broke the group? No
posts over a weekend? You haven't all given up birding on me have you?


I had a burst of activity in the yard this morning. Everything hit the
treetops shortly after the sun did. My birches had the most and most
consistent activity but the birds were moving around everywhere.
It included several warbler species including a Canada, a Magnolia, a
Yellow-Rumped, 2 Northern Parulas, and an American Redstart.
The vireos were mostly Red-Eyed but there was one that I think was a
Warbling as it had less contrast in the head and face than the REVI and a
bit of yellow tinge to the flanks.
Also had 3 flycatchers 2 of which were Eastern Phoebe's (the nesting pair
moved on a while ago so these were passing through), and one that I believe
was a young Great Crested.

Several sparrows were seen as well with most being Chipping and 1
Lincoln's. I did have a group of 18-20 Lincoln's go through my yard last
week at one point with a disturbingly high rate of avian pox. At least 3
out of the 18 had large growths around the bills and eyes. As they were
moving through the grass, I could not see if there were more than that.

The Pileated could be heard calling and hammering as well as well as Downy
and Hairy.

Lately the later in the day activity tends to be down around the parking
area to Knights Pond (on Greely Road Extension) and in the Pines heading up
the hill from there.


Better than coffee,


And to quote Doug... And now I am late for work...

Continuing as of 4:00pm. Same place along the wrack. Not associating with
other peeps. American golden plover on the nearby rocks too. Hundreds of

Had a spotty looking sandpiper that might have been a Baird’s but I’m going
to have to comb through my photos for that one before I say yes. Peeps are
not my strong suit... yet.

Thanks to some observant birders, I can also add the following species,

Wilson's Storm-Petrel - About 154 still offshore.  Mostly in a couple of
tight flocks in the ocean offshore.  No doubt grounded by the calm

Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
I bemoaned the dearth of butterflies but Tuesday offered up around 20
MONARCHS, a handful of RED ADMIRALS, a few LADIES and a couple of
ANGLEWINGS (Commas).
Tuesday also produced a solitary female RUBY THROATED HUMMINGBIRD,
hopefully just the first to refuel from the PURPLE ASTER that's nearing
peak bloom.

Raptors have revved up some.
1st; there's been an EAGLE hanging around and apparently over-nighting. The
thousands of gulls are not impressed.
2nd; I've been seeing two PEREGRINE FALCONS that have apparently stayed on
the island for at least 3 days.
3rd; at least 6 HARRIERS have moved through in the last 2 days.

Wednesday, a dull BALTIMORE ORIOLE investigated the patio and, true to
Murphy's way of running the world, it ignored a bowl of grape jelly and
several orange halves. Instead it went toe-to-toe with sparrows, contesting
for seed.

PUFFINS are still emerging. I conveyed 6 to the shoreline Tuesday/Wednesday
night. One came banging on the basement door around 3 am and was quite
insistant that it be admitted.

Subject: [Maine-birds] NH Audubon Pelagic Trip - 9/3/19 (Black tern, Manx Shearwaters, COMMON DOLPHINS, etc.)
NH Audubon sponsored an all day pelagic bird trip yesterday aboard the
"Granite State" out of Rye Harbor, NH.   The weather was excellent with
clear skies, north winds 5 to 10 knots decreasing to nearly calm, and
seas 2 feet dropping to nearly 0.  We traveled east to the Isles of
Shoals where we wandered around the islands looking for odds & ends and
enjoying the beauty of the islands.  We then continued off-shore forming
a counter-clockwise loop over the "Scantums" and dipping briefly into MA
waters before turning north over Jeffrey's Ledge, then circling back
over the inside of Jeffrey's Ledge before eventually heading back home.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/48678196877/

Birds were VERY SCARCE!  Especially on the ledge, but even at the Isles
of Shoals where there were only a few shorebirds on the islands, and no
luck with Oystercatchers or Great Cormorants. Offshore there were very
few gulls or shearwaters despite unlimited visibility.  But fortunately
we managed to eke out few pelagic species and the few we saw were very
cooperative.   The highlight of the trip was a spectacular performance
by a pod of Short-beaked Common Dolphins, which entertained us for
nearly an hour!

Some photos from Jim Sparrell:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/89302424@N02/


Birds
----------
Canada Goose - Odd sighting of 4 MIGRATING SOUTH over Jeffrey's Ledge. 
A few more at Isles of Shoals.
Common Eider - Lots in harbor and at Isles of Shoals.
Red-breasted Merganser - One inside Rye harbor.
Semipalmated Plover - One flyby on Jeffrey's Ledge.  A few more in Rye
harbor.
Killdeer - Rye harbor.
Ruddy Turnstone - Two poking around rocks at Isles of Shoals.
Semipalmated Sandpiper - Rye harbor.
Short-billed Dowitcher - Rye harbor.
Spotted Sandpiper - One on Square Rock.
Willet - 1 lingering in Rye harbor.
Greater Yellowlegs - A few in Rye harbor.
Red-necked Phalarope - One juvenile on Jeffrey's Ledge Just one singe
Phalarope!  But fortunately, it didn't fly and gave some nice views.
Bonaparte's Gull - A few inside Isles of Shoals.
Herring Gull - Remarkably few offshore.  Our count was only 11 offshore!
LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL - 2 to 4 fresh JUVENILES.  Beautiful study of
two birds that sat on the water right near a juvenile Great Black-backed
Gull and a Herring Gull!  One or two seen later could have been the same
birds or may have been different.
Great Black-backed Gull - Remarkably few offshore.  Our count was only
12 offshore!
BLACK TERN - One juvenile (?) offshore.  Seen well by all, but tough to
get a great angle for a photo.
Common Tern - Perhaps 7 or so offshore.
Common Loon - Including 1 MIGRATING SOUTH over Jeffrey's Ledge.
Great Shearwater - Only about 3 or 4 for the day.
Manx Shearwater - 3 total with two posing nicely on the water.
Sooty Shearwater - 0
Cory's Shearwater - 0
Northern Gannet - 42 counted offshore.  More counted around Isles of
Shoals.  Once again, nice views of 2 adults SITTING ON SQUARE ROCK as we
passed by.
Double-crested Cormorant - A few migrating skeins near the coast as we
left the harbor.
Great Egret - One flyover in Rye harbor.
Peregrine Falcon - Two flew over the boat as we left Rye harbor.
Tree Swallow - One or two at Isles of Shoals.
Barn Swallow - One or two at Isles of Shoals.

Marine Mammals
------------------------
Fin Whale - Roughly 10 individuals.
Humpback Whale - Roughly 4 including one identified as "I.T."
Minke Whale - 0.  I don't think any were seen today.
Atlantic White-sided Dolphin - Pod of roughly 20 gave a brief show in
the morning.
SHORT-BEAKED COMMON DOLPHIN - Spectacular pod of roughly 75
individuals.  This species is rare on Jeffrey's Ledge as they prefer
warmer waters further offshore.  It was the first sighting of the year
for this whale watching boat and I think only my 2nd record for
Jeffrey's Ledge.  They were very cooperative and "friendly" as they road
the bow, splashed the boat and performed lots of aerial acrobatics!  In
the calm smooth water, they were a special sight and the highlight of
the trip for many.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/48674458927/
Harbor Porpoise - Reported by a couple

Fishes
---------
Blue Shark - Nice views of a single shark in the glassy waters.
Ocean Sunfish - At least 7 or 8.  It's been a pretty good year for them
this summer.
Bluefin Tuna - A few splashing the water as they chased bait fish.

Insects
-----------
Monarch - Roughly 5 individuals migrating well offshore.
Lady sp. - One individual well offshore.  Possibly American Lady from
photos.

I'm seeing a fairly strong movement of migrants this night, September
2nd/3rd.
It's not huge but respectable for the early date.
Lots of RED EYED VIREOS, WATER THRUSHS & mixed warblers.
I would expect this fog & wet to produce good morning activity on the
coastal islands and around land-fall sites.

From: RALPH ELDRIDGE <lightrae1...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
There's been little glimmers of a migration but no movements of particular
note.

There have been random warblers and all have been expected and common
varieties.

The only stand-out has been LARK SPARROW, represented by one adult and one
juvenile seen Saturday and Sunday.
We get them every migration, especially in the fall. I've had as many as
seven at one time.

Raptors have made cameo appearances with a female HARRIER late Saturday and
a PEREGRINE both Saturday and Sunday.
I believe that the Peregrine sightings were two separate birds.

Saturday produced two large foraging flocks of seabirds south of the
island.
The longest lived flock lasted nearly twenty minutes and drew in
approximately 800 GANNETS to plunge-feed. Many were sub-adults.
SHEARWATERS and PETRELS were also on-hand but not in big numbers. Gulls,
oddly enough, pretty much ignored the commotion.

The PURPLE ASTER is blooming well and will likely peak by next weekend, if
not sooner. So far, as near as I can tell, it hasn't welcomed any
HUMMINGBIRDS and butterflies have been limited to a handful of
PAINTED/AMERICAN LADIES and 1 or 2 MONARCHS per day.
Right now it's looking as if this year could be a bust for butterfly
migration out here.

On a more encouraging note: 1 or 2 BATS have been seen feeding each night.

PUFFINS are still present but decidedly fewer than last week. I'd say that
there are still 100 or so active nests spread around the island.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Monhegan, Rusty Blackbirds, etc. 9.2.19
We were only on the island til 12:30 today, so not much opportunity for
birding, but my husband thinks he may have spotted the Eurasian
Collared-Dove this morning. He only caught a glimpse, but noted its large
size and a fanned tail with wide white tips. Not sure when the bird was
last noted out there, but if it's still there, I'll be back in two weeks
and will probably have another chance to look for it.

We did find at least three (maybe more) RUSTY BLACKBIRDS hanging out with a
larger flock of starlings at the edge of the Meadow.

From the boat on the way back to Port Clyde we watched dozens of Northern
Gannets, adult and sub-adult, fishing between Monhegan and Allen/Burnt
Islands. That never gets old.

Shortly after noon, two hours before high tide, 2 American Avocets flew into a distant panne off Eastern Point Trail. Southeast from the trail, they originally landed in the second furthest set of pannes, to the far left. Danny and I were on the dikes in marsh while observing the birds, but we could not relocate them once we returned to the road. They appeared less bothered by the precipitation than were we.

We picked up some shorebirds out here yesterday: Greater Yellowlegs and
some shiny new Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers feeding in Lobster Cove.

Also found a handful of warblers, including a couple of drab female Cape
Mays. Other songbirds included several Least Flycatchers, a small flock of
Cedar Waxwings, and a Red-eyed Vireo. Yes, one.

Some of the Double-crested Cormorants appear to still be on nests. The only
raptor was a Merlin fly-over.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Warbler mixed group in Cumberland
Lately when driving home I have cut large groups of sparrows on the road side near the parking lot for Knights Pond in Cumberland. Today I had an opportunity to look at them and was pleased to find a pleasant mix of sparrows and warblers. There were 6 species I could make out, but a lot of movement high up in the treetops not affording decent views, so who knows how many more might be out there. I will check again in the AM to see if they are still around.

Thanks,
Rob O'Connell

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Turf farms
Harvard Turf Farms in Berwick aka Tuckahoe no longer allows driving on its roads, but you can walk in or scan from outside. The manager lives adjacent to the site and police take notice.

Ridlon Road, dirt in this area, has several good vantage points. It is closed in winter. The main entrance on Hubbard Road is now off limits, but directly across the street one or two cars may park out of the way on the edge.

The last time I was there, about a week ago, farm equipment was active across almost the entire site. Weekends might be better, but they still can be busy.

I’m pretty confident it was birder behavior that changed attitude and access here, so rebuild bridges if you have the chance.

If you’re on Ridlon, take a peek at Murdock Lake while there. It’s usually quiet, birdwise, but ducks stop during migration and the surrounding trees can be interesting.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Monhegan, C. Nighthawks, etc.
Out on Monhegan for the holiday weekend, my husband and I were excited to
observe five Common Nighthawks passing over the island at sunset this
evening. Interestingly, they were heading NE. We did not see them turn
around.

On the way out we spotted several adult N. Gannets, two Bald Eagles, and
what I’m pretty sure was an adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL on the water.

The island is very quiet bird-wise (not human-wise). My only warbler so far
has been a young male C. Yellowthroat, for example. Donna Cundy reports
seeing a YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD here several days ago, so have kept my
eyes open for that one.

In non-avian news, the milkweed patch at the Trailing Yew is teeming right
now with Monarch caterpillars, chrysalises, and adult butterflies. Such a
great sign, that they seem to be doing well throughout Maine this summer.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Red knot Sears Island, Searsport
We watched a red knot for about 20 minutes yesterday afternoon on the east side of the causeway. He was hanging with a group of semipalmated plovers. He was still there when we left.

From: RALPH ELDRIDGE <lightrae1...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
I’ve just completed the 1st week of this rotation on MSI and there’s been
no rousing surprises.

The RAZORBILLS & COMMON MURRES are long gone.

PUFFINS are still present but dwindling daily. I guesstimate that upwards
of 200 active nests remain.
I’ve been seeing 1 or 2 Pufflings around the lighthouse each night and
certainly there are other fledgings leaving the island with each dark.

LEACH’S STORM PETRELS are just beginning to show sheathed feathers through
their down.
Adults are around nightly but there hasn’t been a real “petrel night” since
I arrived.
UPDATE: I left a large catch-tray outside overnight to fill with rain
water and soak off some dirt. It was full and ready to be rinsed and dumped
this morning when a petrel emerged from under the boardwalk, exactly where,
and seconds before, I tipped the tray of soapy water.
It was an already wet WILSON’S STORM PETREL that didn’t need detergent
further compromising its waterproofing.
It’s now drying and resting in the basement, awaiting release shortly.

HERRING & GREAT BLACK BACKED GULLS are over abundant with several thousand
attending the island and surrounds at any given moment. They are a nuisance
around the lawns and boardwalks with 200-500 congregating if left
undisturbed. Sometimes it is just for a sheltered, secure roosting place
but they find copious amounts of earth worms at night and on wet days so
that only serves to encourage them.

DC CORMORANTS are occasionally plentiful close into the island and
occasionally ashore for a round of wing drying. They, as well as some
GANNETS and a sprinkling of GREAT SHEARWATERS seem to be drawn to a bit of
food in the nearby tidal currents.

A couple of FLICKERS paused overnight on the weekend but none since. They
should soon arrive in numbers.

Shorebirds are thin on the ground, too. Small groups of SEMIPALMATED
SANDPIPERS, likely totaling no more than 50 birds, can be found, while the
odd RUDDY TURNSTONE, WILLET or PEEP shows briefly. Still a couple of
SPOTTED SANDPIPERS around.

Raptors haven’t been very notable: 2 PEREGRINES one day and a third one
the following day; 1 HARRIER, 2 MERLINS & 1 KESTREL, each on their own day.
The EAGLES which haunted for weeks this summer seem to have curtailed their
visits now that the easy pickings with Alcids and Eiders has ended.

COMMON EIDERS are evident in small number. Whether residual MSI residents
or new-comers is impossible to know but I suspect that they are the
remainder of our summer breeders and will be replaced by a winter crew
later this fall.

Songbird variety and number are sparse, dominated by the resident SAVANNAH
SPARROWS and two RAVENS, the presumed pair that are pretty much winter
residents each year.

There’s been a handful of COWBIRDS; youngsters and females. Likewise with
RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS represented by perhaps 4 individuals.
Those "blackbirds" appear to have mostly vacated in wake of the passing
weather.

A single BLACK & WHITE WARBLER on Thursday last was only the second
warbler that I had seen. The first was a freshly minted male YELLOW WARBLER
that appeared Wednesday.
This morning (Friday) after about 24 hours of rain, drizzle and dense fog,
the island was dripping with that fresh, after-the-storm stillness.
I spotted a bright male HOODED WARBLER before I poured my first coffee. It
was perched under our solar panel array, spying for insects with ideal
feeding conditions: early morning sunshine, virtually windless and warm
temperature.
Playing on a hunch, I made my way along the front of the solar array and
caught the Hoodie feeding. I photographed it with a big, fat
Bluebottle-type fly.
That’s the fourth time in 5 years that I’ve photographed a male Hooded
Warbler on exactly the same rock with the same prey in its beak.
I spent a late morning hour checking the most inviting habitat and
discovered a couple YELLOW WARBLERS; 1 probable female BLACK THROATED GREEN
WARBLER; several OVENBIRDS; a handful of unidentified warblers and one
unidentified Thrush.
Late today 4 different EASTERN WOOD PEWEES have appeared, taking advantage
of the late afternoon and evening conditions to snare some of the abundant
flies around the buildings and boardwalks.

GREY SEALS are abundant around the island although nearly all use adjacent
Gull Rock as a haul-out instead of MSI. The exceptions tend to be younger
seals, such as the 2 half grown pups that I ran across while wandering the
southern shoreline today.
HARBOUR SEALS seem down in number this summer. I expect to see an
occasional newborn pup or even a birthing but I didn't catch either this
year.
Adult sightings are sparse, as well.

I glimpsed a single bat a few nights ago and the other lightkeeper
reported that one landed on a window around mid-morning today. I suspect
that they are migrants and the species are unknown but now any bat sighting
is notable.

Subject: [Maine-birds] nighthawk migration Mt Agamenticus
Hi All,


I went to Mt A. for the first time to check it out for nighthawk
migration. I saw one with binos, and few specks came into view. I went
and got my scope and saw about 125 at about 5:45 to 6 PM. which were to
far away to see with my 10 power binos. They were all along the coast near
Long sands area. Than about 25 more at 6:50.

No birds were seen west of the mountain while I was there for 2 hours and
25 minutes.

Happy birding

emerging from the bushes at the right of the lot. It then flew up to a

in the area last Thursday (8/22) on eBird by Hap Ellis.

Was working with the doors and windows open and heard the unmistakable call
of a Broad-Winged Hawk so I went out and found 3 kettling on the rising
thermals from Bruce Hill. The calls have been intermittent for about 20
minutes now and every time I look out there are 2-3 in view so I am not sure
if it is only 3 enjoying the day, or if it is a larger group passing in
turns. Nice to see though!



Also, the Pied-Billed Grebe was still present this morning at Springbrook
Farms on Greely Road. It was in the front pond next to the road.



Cheers to all!

While driving to work, I had a Lark Sparrow land in the median at the Main Street x Larrabee Road intersection in Westbrook. A couple u-turns later, it appears to be loosely associating with the House Sparrow flock at the MacDonalds near this intersection.

And now I’m late for work...

Subject: [Maine-birds] Moving to North Carolina, Thanks for the Memories
After 26 years in New England I’m retiring to the mountainsof western North Carolina.  I’ve had agreat time birding throughout the region, and greatly appreciate all the helpprovided by Maine birders.  Some of myfondest memories in Maine include –
Numerous trips to Biddeford – with migrant passerines andKentucky Warbler (9/9/13) in the woods, Caspian Tern (7/26/17) and Royal Terns(7/11/14) on Hills Beach, Oystercatchers (7/17/04) in the Pool, Surfbird (3/22/15)in the rocks, and Pacific Loon (11/22/14) offshore.
Scarborough Marsh with rarities like European Golden-Plover(10/11/08), Little Egret (6/29/11), and Black-necked Stilt (6/22/13), not tomention great studies of the marsh sparrows – Seaside, Saltmarsh, and Nelson’s
Goose flocks in Yarmouth including Cackling, White-frontedand Barnacle (all on 10/7/08), and Pink-footed (10/20/09).
Western Grebe in Brunswick more than a mile away (4/23/16)
And lastly I’ll always fondly remember the Great Black Hawkin Biddeford on 8/9/18 - #343 for my state list (along with Neotropic Cormorantand Wood Stork in NH later that same day) Now I’m looking forward to learning more about the birds of themountains of NC and beyond.  After all,just like New England, there are a lot of states nearby - SC and TN are justshort drives away.  One species I’m especiallylooking forward to learning about is the Swainson’s Warbler that breeds in themountainous rhododendron thickets – I’ve never seen them in that habitat.
Also now that I’m retired from my 9-to-5 job, I’m starting abird guiding company - 50 States Birding.  I’m putting my knowledge of birdingin all 50 states to use in providing two guiding options:

1.  Traditional guiding services where Iaccompany birders in the field to help find target species or in general birdan area that is new to them.
2.  A unique research-based service whereI provide birders with customized information to help them bird an area ontheir own.  In this lower-cost option Iuse on-line research supplemented with my own personal knowledge of the area toidentify birding sites that best meet the client’s objectives.  Then for each site I provide a downloadablePDF including maps, lists of expected species, tips to find key species, andgeneral suggestions on how to bird each site. (sorry for the commercial)
If your travels take you to the mountains of western NC, orplaces nearby, send me an e-mail – perhaps we could bird together (Swainson’sWarbler anyone?)  Plus I can catch up onall those rarities I’ve missed back in New England.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Birding at Crowley Island Bridge and other points on the Addison/Jonesport town boundary
We birded Crowley Island Bridge (Indian River) at low tide today trying to
figure out "last mud" for the best shorebird viewing. We estimated 250
Semipalmated Sandpipers, 50 Greater Yellowlegs and 40 Lesser Yellowlegs, 20
Short-billed Dowitchers, 100 Black-bellied Plover, 20 Semipalmated Plover
and one Hudsonian Godwit.

From the bluff at the Indian River Cemetery (the access road is immediately
south of the Crowley Island turnoff from Route 187) we saw 14 Whimbrel
flying over and circling the river finally landing on rocks close to the
shoreline! Nice!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Chroicocephalus near Old Sow, Deer Island Canada 22 August
I posted a photo taken from the Welshpool Ferry of a small gull flying
among many Bonaparte's Gulls yesterday. It's probably a Bonaparte's, but it
has red legs, not a lot of black edging on wing, and none on tail. It's
possible that the light on water distorted the markings or their color. In
case it is the Black-Headed Gull, I'm asking for anyone interested to take
a look. It's on iNaturalist (so I could make comments and explanations and
get feedback). I posted the observation as "Croicocephalus" but
iNaturalist calls it "Masked Gulls". You can look for my posts in the
"explore" link to carol-in-maine, or look for the species. You don't need
to be a member to look at observations, just to make comments, and you can
do that here on this list if you recognize the bird. Thanks!
