Subject: [Maine-birds] Feather and calls
Garrett,

The calls you recorded do suggest a young bird begging to be fed. However,
I once followed two young Barred Owls around our neighborhood (I live in a
rural town) and their calls were more like hisses. This doesn't mean
Barred Owls of this age don't have other calls, but just indicating what I
heard this one time.

Also, I think the feather you found is more likely that of a hawk. I have
a similar feather and believe it is from a Red-shouldered Hawk. Wing
feathers of the Barred Owl seem to have white tips and the barring is more
regular and perhaps narrower as well, without the rather broad black
terminal band. See here:

https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/feather.php?Bird=BDOW_wing_adult

Red-shouldered Hawk feathers:

https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/result_th.php

Here again, there is variation in everything wild, and I could be
mistaken. Did want to pass along these comments, however.

Cheers,
bab

Subject: [Maine-birds] Call Identification Help
Could anyone help me identify the bird call from this recording? I recorded
it on June 16th, at 11:30 PM. It continued off and on through about 1:15 AM
when I went to bed. My initial thought was possibly barred owl fledgling
calls, but I am unsure. Today I found a feather which I also believe is a
barred owl feather, but again I am not positive. This would back up my
earlier belief. I would love to hear any ideas.

Glad the Wood Thrushes are in Holden-for the first time in 20 years I have not had any around my home in West Kennebunk. One or two stopped during migration but none stayed; I do miss their evening /dawn melodies! Even the Veerys are quiet/not present this year. Sharon in West K.

This morning we heard a Swainson's Thrush near ANP Carriage Road intersection #25, a place we have reliably heard them in past years.

In Holden we have Hermit Thrushes every year and a decade ago Wood Thrushes were here most years as well. After several year's absence, we have heard Wood Thrushes several times off Nickerson Road. Nice to have them back in the neighborhood.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Backyard birding in Maine is... wow!
I relocated to Maine this month, from Chicago, after visiting an old friend
in North Yarmouth for many years. One of the many lures was the action at
her feeders. She's got an old farmhouse, fields and forest surround,
sparrows in the barn, usual right? But she gets such great stuff routinely
at her feeders! In two recent afternoons at her place I saw the following
just off her back porch (plus a bunch of sparrows, doves, variety of
blackbirds, etc.)...

- Downy and hairy peckers.
- Red breasted nuthatch
- White breasted nuthatch
- 2 pileated woodpeckers
- Cardinals
- Baltimore orioles
- Bluebirds
- Scarlet tanager
- Brown creeper
- Rose breasted grosbeak
- tufted titmouse
- Blue jays
- Chickadees
- Goldfinches

And last month I saw a bald eagle kill and eat (with a second eagle) a wild
turkey in her yard. And later a turkey vulture cleaned up. I mean...
pileated woodpeckers at a feeder?!! On any outing in the Chicago area I
would be happy to have seen a few of those species, and one pileated every
five years if lucky, but all of them in a couple afternoons? Back home, we
would get excited each spring when an ovenbird returned to our suburban
yard. For me, this is remarkable backyard birding.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Glossy Ibis
Fairly large flock of glossy ibis yesterday afternoon (60+) in a muddy cow
pasture on Rt 9 (Hallowell Rd), just south of Loring Ln. north of Royal Rd.
in Pownal. I'm a recent midwest transplant, been here just two weeks and
have only done backyard birding in Maine, so I was a little startled,
having seen them only tropically in the past. (I see the earlier post
below.) The neighbor whose drive I pulled-off on says they've been feeding
in that pasture a couple days. Nobody knew what they were; the farmer
called them "mud shits!" After a while they flew off to the east, and when
I re-checked just before dusk the cows had moved in.

Hi all,

My observations of note over the past seven days included the following:
- 6+ Gray Jays, 1 Olive-sided Flycatcher, etc, Boy Scout Road, Rangeley, 6/8 (with Rangeley Birding Festival tour group).
- 1 RUSTY BLACKBIRD, 1 Blackpoll Warbler (migrant?), etc, Boy Scout Road, Rangeley, 6/9 (with Rangeley Birding Festival tour group).
- 7 Upland Sandpipers, 7 Grasshopper Sparrows, 11 Vesper Sparrows, etc, Kennebunk Plains, Kennebunk, 6/10 (with Jeannette).
- 1 continuing male BLUE-WINGED WARBLER, Smutty Lane, Saco, 6/10 (with Jeannette).
- 1 continuing LITTLE EGRET, Providence Ave, Falmouth and then relocating to Tidewater Farm, Falmouth, 6/10 (with Jeannette).
- 1 continuing HYBRID TRICOLORED HERON X SMALL WHITE EGRET(S), Eastern Road Trail, Scarborough Marsh, 6/14. At this point, I think it's lineage is impossible to determine, but I wonder about Tricolored Heron x Snowy Egret x Little Egret at this point based on plumage, timeline, plumage progression, etc. Whatever...I just call it Patches II now.
- 1 Greater Yellowlegs, Eastern Road Trail, 6/14.
- 1 female PURPLE MARTIN, Dunstan Landing, Scarborough Marsh, 6/14.

Subject: [Maine-birds] BBS Block-busting weekend - JACKMAN!


I’m looking for a few experienced birders with a sense of adventure to help
me knock off a priority block or two for the Maine Breeding Bird Survey
(BBS) in remote areas around Jackman. A Jackman summer resident has
offered us the use of his camp on Crocker Pond, with beds (singles and
pull-out sofas) to sleep six and floor space for up to four more. He has
also offered his canoes and kayak to allow us to explore regions with no
road access. (Please bring your own paddle and life jacket, if you are a
skilled paddler who would enjoy birding via lakes and streams as well as on
land.) Arrive after noon on Thursday, June 27 to get settled into the camp
and plot your route. Early arrivers can start right in exploring the
selected priority block on Thursday afternoon if they wish. Friday through
Sunday, June 28-30, our days will start very early as we head out, either
in groups of two or as individuals, to look for evidence of breeding birds
in all of the different habitats within priority blocks in the Jackman
grid. All meals and snacks will be provided. On Monday, July 1, we will
pack up to return home – possibly with one last birding foray on the way,
if time permits. If you can only come for part of the scheduled four-day
time window, that’s OK too – every hour of birding counts toward our goal.
Interested birders can contact me offline for more details. Thanks!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Yellow-throated Vireo - Rockport, 6/7
While conducting a point count this morning a Yellow-throated Vireo found me at the end of Fisk Lane, just past the roundabout, in Rockport. It sang viciously near me for around 5 minutes before flying away to the NW and not vocalizing until over an hour later, 150m+ away. It has continued to sing intermittently over the past 30 minutes from around the same area (maybe along the power line cut just to the NW). Definitely a bird worth investigating as they are very uncommon outside of their limited breeding range in Maine and this might be a bird on territory. Find that breeding evidence!


Good birding,
Fyn

Subject: [Maine-birds] Monhegan, 6.5-6.6.19
What a difference a week makes! I’ve been out on Monhegan for a couple of
days, and it’s been much quieter bird-wise. The EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE is
still hanging around, however, often calling quite loudly.

Other highlights include, in no particular order:
-continuing Brown Thrasher near Hill Studio
-Pine Siskin at feeders
-Virginia Rail and Sora still calling from the Meadow
-Indigo Bunting 1-2
-Black-billed Cuckoo
-7 sp of warbler, including Blackpoll
-singing Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets right next to each other

Donna Cundy reported a SUMMER TANAGER being seen on Fish Beach through
Tuesday morning.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Space available on Matinicus Rock boat trip
Hi everyone:

Thanks to the moderator for allowing me to post this trip plug. :)

Tomorrow, Maine Audubon is running its annual “Seabirds of Matinicus Rock” trip out of New Harbor. This is a great opportunity to get on the water for early pelagics but especially to see amazing numbers of Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, and Common Murres, along with great comparisons of Common, Arctic, and Roseate terns! You never know what small alcid might return to these islands for the fourth year, or what this morning’s storm could have sent into the Gulf of Maine - join us tomorrow and see!

For more information and to register, visit: https://maineaudubon.coursestorm.com/course/seabirds-of-matinicus-rock-2019

Good birding,

Subject: [Maine-birds] Golden-winged Warbler X at Sears Island
An apparent Golden-winged Warbler hybrid was found this morning by Jim Mcree at Sears Island, Waldo County. Apart from yellow on the breast it looks like an adult male GWWA. The bird was being seen feeding in an apple tree along the northeast shore of the island where the Homestead Trail meets the beach. This is just south of the ramp by the information kiosk. It was observed for close to two hours and could very well be there through the day as it was still feeding in the same tree when I left at 11:10 am.

Good Birding,
John (sorry for posting a photo - I tried to keep it low-res)

I am surprised, but three of four responses were for a Red-eyed Vireo. We didn’t consider that even though we see them all the time. A little vocalization would have helped.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Aggressive sparrow
We have bluebirds nesting in a birdhouse by the pond at our house. Recently a sparrow has taken a stance on the roof of the birdhouse and chases off the bluebird parents when they come to tend the babies inside. We haven’t noticed the sparrow approaching the entry to the nest. It just sits on the roof.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Blue-Winged and possible Brewster's Warbler - Smutty Lane in Saco
I spent about an hour down at Smutty Lane in Saco earlier this afternoon
and heard and saw a Blue-Winged Warbler singing, flitting back and forth
across the street. I also got very brief flashes of a bright golden capped
warbler which appeared to fly into the same tree as the Blue-Winged.
Shortly thereafter they both flew deeper towards the power line cut and I
was unable to relocate either of them. I definitely don't feel confident
enough to report it on eBird as a Brewsters (it very easily could have been
a Chestnut Sided) but figured I'd report it here for any members who are in
the area this weekend. Smutty Lane is one of Maine's best spots for
Blue-Winged Warblers and there was great diversity there today including a
lot of Prairie Warblers as well. My sightings were right around 81/86

We have a sky full of swallows. I spent a fine hour watching 8-10 barn
swallows swirl over our yard and the surrounding field this evening. It
seems like their numbers are up from the last few years when there have
been only two pairs. They nest down the road in my neighbor's barn, but
come up daily to hunt over the fields here. They landed often in my
recently turned garden bed--could not figure out exactly what they were
after there. Bugs? Dust bath? Calcium from egg shells that were in the
compost?

We also have three--possibly four--pairs of tree swallows nesting in our
boxes, so when they are also flying it seems like the airspace is fully
occupied. The bluebirds may be picking a fight with the tree swallows over
one of the boxes, but they don't seem all that determined.

Add to that the four male bobolinks singing and displaying over the field
and it's a joyful cacophany. We also have our resident yellow and common
yellow throated warblers, plus Baltimore orioles that seem to be hanging
around.

Hoping for full dawn and evening choruses soon with all the resident birds
(veeries, thrushes) in place.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Today on Monhegan, 5/28 (EUCD, WWDO, ACFL, lots of migrants)
Hi all,

I’ll take over for Kristen Lindquist on my last day on the island. And today was a very good day.

Lots of migrants arrived overnight with large numbers of flycatchers and the late warblers, Blackpoll Warbler and Eastern Wood-Pewees led the way. And incredible and completely unexpected day.

Highlights today included:
- Continuing EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE
- WHITE-WINGED DOVE (continuing or another? Last seen on Saturday) spotted by at least two parties flying with the Collared-Dove over town (only on Monhegan!)
- 1 ACADIAN FLYCATCHER
- 1 Mourning Warbler seen by others
- 1 HOUSE FINCH seen by Luke Seitz et al.

Subject: [Maine-birds] WHITE-WINGED DOVE AND SHOVELER IN LUBEC
A white-winged dove was sighted on Machias Seal Island several days ago,
and today a Texan birder in my Road Scholars group made a positive ID on a
white-winged dove in downtown Lubec. She has them in her back yard, and she
noted the lack of black spots, white along the edge of the wing, and larger
size as confirming marks. I've seen maybe three in my life, so I deferred
to her superior knowledge. I only gave it a passing glance before it flew,
as I assumed it was just a chunky mourning dove. They look very similar!

A male northern shoveler continues in the pond behind the Crow Town Gallery
on the South Lubec Road. The owner, Shanna Wheelock, was incredibly
generous and welcoming to our party of 11 birders when we stopped in to
take a peek today.

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Indigo Bunting CN
Here in the hills of N Nobleboro it has been a very birdy year. It may just be that we are paying better attention as I am on crutches for a few weeks and Lynn has gone to half time work now.
We had wonderful views today of the male Indigo Bunting which has been around for about 10 days, Lynn hears a second but has been unable locate it (maybe female?). As I can't hear the birds well anymore I'm limited to spotting them and then watching.
Also seen today was a Scarlet Tanager. Flitting around high in the oaks. I hoping it's eating the brown-tailed caterpillars. 2 males were seen earlier in the month as well.
In our 30 years here we've never seen Indigo Buntings and only seen Scarlet Tanagers a couple times on the hillside.

I don’t usually feel regret at seeing a new state/island bird, but mixed
emotions over this morning’s sighting of a (vocal) EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE
out here on Monhegan, last seen flying toward Jamie Wyeth’s house. (Did
this invasive species already manage to displace the WHITE-WINGED DOVE that
was being seen here through Saturday?) (That’s a joke.)

From: Sean S <therefromhere168...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] This week's sightings digest: Baldwin & Hiram
On the 20th in Hiram behind the Village Cemetery (on Rt. 117), near Hancock
Brook at least 2 AMERICAN WOODCOCK were flying around and making noise the
evening of the 20th. Since the birds weren't visible I automatically
thought the peenting was from Common Nighthawks (which I've also been
seeing or hearing around the area daily in small numbers all week), but the
twittering wing noises made me listen to the call again.. definitely
buzzier, flatter and mechanically repetitious than a Nighthawk's, though
similar in pitch. Incidental list with sounds:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56563079 .

At least one Woodcock was heard calling the next night as well, but around
9:20 on Wednesday evening an EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILL was heard calling in
the same general area, making me temporarily forget about the Woodcocks.
Regrettably the recording from that night consists almost entirely of
stomping foot noises and breathing, from trying to get close enough to get
a decent level while the bird seemed to move further and further toward the
brook. I haven't heard it (or the Woodcocks) the past couple of nights,
and it would be great if it's not just passing through.

On the 21st there were again a ton of NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOWS at
Ingalls Pond near the Hiram/Baldwin town line. Seriously not trying to
give the eBird staff headaches, but yes! There were 35-45 of them milling
around the sky, overhead on the trails (flying in close to catch the bugs
following us), and above a large area of the pond, high and low. Although
it was windy and not optimal for hearing bird calls, fortunately the NRWS
were more vocal than the other swallow species (with some pairs were
chasing each other) and can be seen and heard in some numbers in this video
(turn up sound to hear their "jriit" calls). As before, they were in 2
main groups on the north and south ends of the water frontage, and mixing
with slightly fewer Tree Swallows and far fewer Cliff & Barn. The birds
were visually scanned for half an hour by Jeff Webb and myself, in an
attempt to be accurate re. numbers.
Ingalls list: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56607589
Ingalls video link: https://youtu.be/CwdNYV23f_I

It's been my experience that luck for viewing larger numbers of swallows
seems to hinge on the afternoon being later and the weather being cooler,
although there were 3 individuals noted in 72 degree weather at 3:45 this
afternoon, as well as a male BAY-BREASTED and 2 BLACKPOLL WARBLERS.
Today's list: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56730223

My supposition as to why there are so many NRWS (by all accounts NOT a
colonial nesting species) in the vicinity of Ingalls Pond is the
continually unbroken and relatively unspoiled habitat along Rt. 113.
Simply put, there's more than enough habitat space to accommodate many
nesting pairs without stepping on each others' toes. The same type of
uncommon shallow wetlands, which somewhat resemble the boat landing area at
Messalonskee Lake (minus any cattails), extends unbroken for a very long
distance and then begins again in Hiram near the juncture of Rt. 117 along
the Saco River, continuing for another 2/5 of a mile there. The shallows
of Ingalls Pond are bordered along almost the entire shore with the same
low scrubby water bushes (no idea what they are called) that extend out
into the water. There is lots and lots of water frontage with no houses
built next to the pond. The same low brushy frontage (backed by mostly
deciduous mixed trees...the area is not "spruce bog" at all) is contiguous
with both sides of Ingalls Pond, and occurs in a third parallel strip just
across the railroad tracks which thinly separate Ingalls from the Saco
River. Zooming in on the satellite feature of eBird at the spot gives an
idea of the unusual and picturesque landscape features of this area.

This is a hotspot worth checking for anyone who's in the area, or visiting
the Brownfield Bog. I've found 65 species there since my first visit there
on the 14th. It would be great to see what anyone else is able to turn up.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Snowy Owl - Messalonskee boat ramp, Belgrade
I’m 95% sure I had a Snowy Owl perched on a brush pile on the far side of the channel just to the right of the duck blind as seen from the boat launch. I watched it for over 1/2 hour with a scope and despite the distance could see it move its head without moving its body- Owl style. It dwarfed a crow that landed lower on the pile, and I could see it look down at the crow.

It finally flew off to the right, with wide long wings and short thick head and tail extending from the body - eliminating Snowy or Great Egret as it did not have a long neck or legs extending behind.

Very poor photos to come, once I get back to my computer later this weekend as we are at our place on Great Pond with no computer for the weekend.

Be on the lookout.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Monhegan, 5.24.19
My husband Paul and I arrived late morning on the island. Despite the
continuing bleak weather, the birding was just as exciting as when I left
the island on Monday. Began seeing warblers as we walked up from the
boat—always a good sign—as well as a male SUMMER TANAGER.

We were tipped off to a WHITE-WINGED DOVE at Donna Cundy’s feeders, so
headed up there after checking in. The dove came down to the suet while we
were there, as did 6 different Scarlet Tanagers (5 males, 1 female). Nice
looks at a female Canada Warbler grazing on the lawn, too.

Ended up spending most of the afternoon near Jamie Wyeth’s house, where
many warblers were actively feeding on the rocks and in the spruces,
heedless of observers, including at least a dozen Blackburnian,
Bay-breasted, many Magnolia, BT Blue, BT Green, man Am. Redstarts, Cape
May, and others. Saw a Merlin pass over a couple of times; maybe it wanted
more of a challenge? Other highlights for us included 2-3 Yellow-bellied
Flycatchers, 2-3 Philadelphia Vireos, a Warbling Vireo, a Swainson’s
Thrush, and a big flock of Cedar Waxwings eating juniper berries very close
to us. Also, a male cardinal attacking his reflection in a truck’s
rear-view mirror.

Not seen by us but reported was a BLUE-WINGED WARBLER in that same area. A
KENTUCKY WARBLER reported out here a couple days ago doesn’t seem to have
been seen since.

A very satisfying day of birding, even if we didn’t range very far or tally
a zillion species.

Hi all -- a cousin of mine who is new to birding sent a photo to me with
the caption, "This doesn't look like a Cardinal!" Sharp eyes. It was a male
Summer Tanager. I shared the picture with Louis Bevier and laid on praise
to this new birder.

Best,

Found the Mourning Warbler skulking near the brick wall east of the picnic table on the point along the path. I didn’t get to hear it sing regrettably.

I found a Yellow-throated Vireo in among the mix. Not often do I get morning with five vireo species (Red-eyed, Blue-headed, Warbling, Philadelphia, and Yellow-bellied)!

Subject: [Maine-birds] App to check safe dates for Maine Bird Atlas
For those of you collecting data for the Maine Bird Atlas, I've made an app
where you can check whether today's date falls within the safe dates for a
given species.

So, if you see or hear a bird and want to know in the field whether it is
all right to submit as Possible (H) or Possible(S), just go to
https://christinemurr.shinyapps.io/CheckDates/ on your phone, type in the
species name, and it will tell you whether it is "safe" to submit a
breeding code.

Here's a shortened URL for the same thing: https://bit.ly/2W7JPa0

Feedback welcome. You can also check out a more elaborate app to look at
eBird hotspots overlaid with the bird atlas blocks at

Subject: [Maine-birds] Cherryfield feeders
Wife Sandy and I have been back in Cherryfield for 9-10 days now. The
feeders have been busier, and with more species than in previous years. We
have had a huge variety of species at or near the feeders, including
Scarlet Tanager and Indigo Bunting. One bird we're really happy to see is
Purple Finch (though only 2-3 of them), which had been absent following
that finch disease a while back.

However, there are no chickadees! This is bizarre, since they are normally
all over the place. I even put up several of those winter roost boxes for
shelter from the weather. I hope other people in the area have chickadees,
and that this is just some local anomaly. Other unusual no-shows are
Red-breasted (normally pretty constant at the feeders) and White-breasted
Nuthatches.

BTW the woods around the lawn have had a lot more warblers than usual, best
(a new yard bird) a gorgeous Magnolia.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Cuckoos, warblers, etc., in Gardiner-Dresden area
Allison and I had a chance to bird along Old Cedar Grove Road in Dresden and Pittston yesterday (5/22) early evening and had some great birds including several Black-billed Cuckoos putting on a bit of a show for us, many warblers including multiple Wilson's and Canada, Blackburnian, Magnolia, Northern Parula, etc., as well as several Virginia Rails, Bobolinks, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and other birds. And FOY Solitary Sandpiper.

This morning (5/23) in our backyard in Gardiner we had Tennessee and Blackpoll Warblers. Late in the day we visited the Harrison Avenue Nature Trail in Gardiner and were astounded at the number of warblers there including the most Bay-breasted Warblers we ever recall seeing in one place along with lots of Blackburnians, Northern Parula, Canada, Blackpoll, Cape May and many others as has been recounted by other birders who have visited in recent days. Also our FOY Eastern Wood-Pewee there. Plus there are many spots where the birds were very close and sometimes on the slope below you so you have great views. We had Bay-breasts foraging on the forest floor at times just 10-15 feet from us, obviously hungry birds but they appear to be also finding food as they are all actively flycatching and poking their bills in the tree flowers for nectar/pollen. Fabulous spot!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Diversity in the yard, Swainson's thrush, among others
It seems from all your reports and our experience that yard birds have been
very interesting this spring.
A Swainson's thrush showed up in the duff amidst our shrubs. We noticed it
first on Tuesday and it was here all day yesterday.
It blended in so perfectly with last year's leaves; we only saw it when it
tossed them around delicately (compared to the catbird).
Our yard has warbler species uncommon to us, like Canada, Blackburnian,
Wilson's, besides Nashville, 4 Cape May warblers and 15+ hummingbirds at
once across the street.
What's interesting besides the diversity is that they have all stayed
around for 2 or more days.
I'm assuming weather is the main driver.
I'm grateful our mostly no-spray neighborhood with diverse plantings is
offering food for their journey.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Oriole attacks (and eats?) hummingbird - Cumberland
We observed an adult female Baltimore oriole attack and possibly kill a female Ruby-throated hummingbird this morning, before flying off with the hummingbird in her bill. The attack occurred within a foot or so of a sugar-water hummingbird feeder where both birds had been feeding. We didn’t witness the capture, but had been watching the activity around the feeders when we noticed the oriole perched, with the hummingbird pinned against a branch with her feet, jabbing at the smaller bird with her bill. She did this for maybe 15 seconds and then flew off to a favorite nesting tree 100 feet away, after which we lost sight of her.



We have two sugar-water feeders, two suet cages, and a big bowl of jelly all within maybe 30 feet of each other. We have at least six each of orioles, hummingbirds and catbirds (among others) regularly visiting and occasionally getting scrappy with each other, but this is the first we’ve observed anything like this. We wondered if it may have been simply a territorial/food resource dispute. On the other hand to an oriole a hummingbird may be as good as a big fat bug. Anyone know of any other accounts like this?

Subject: [Maine-birds] Monhegan, 5.20.19
This is a few days late because I left the island on the 11:30 boat on
Monday on the birdiest day of the (long) weekend, and thought for sure
someone who stayed on the island would post about all the amazing birds
being seen. I'm only posting now because I wanted to add that before we
left, we had our first Canada Warblers of the trip, an extremely obliging
MOURNING WARBLER basically grazing in Donna Cundy's lawn, and several C.
Nighthawks were reported (one very visible roosting in a pine tree at the
brewery). Don Reimer reported a WHITE-EYED VIREO, as well, that we were not
able to relocate. It was really hard to leave, as there were clearly large
numbers of "fresh" birds all over the island despite (because of?) thick
fog everywhere.

But the highlight for us was on the boat on the way back to Port Clyde,
when a YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO followed and then circled the boat several
times, considered landing, and then flew back toward Monhegan. We were
probably a little less than halfway to the next islands in (Allen and
Burnt). We saw about a half-dozen more songbirds do the same thing--and
were able to ID a C. Yellowthroat and Red-eyed Vireo--but none of them
actually landed on the boat. It was both exciting and heart-breaking to
witness this behavior of what must have been desperate birds in thick fog.

We also spotted a Black-legged Kittiwake from the boat, which was fun, as
we really couldn't see much at all in the fog.

Headed back out tomorrow for another long weekend, will share highlights
again.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Sears Island brief a.m. stop
Hi all -- I made a short stop at Sears Island (Searsport) this morning. I
love this spot. It's a huge, undeveloped island with a devoted group of
volunteer caretaker citizens; it has a gated paved road up the middle that
is crowded with encroaching vegetation. You can witness birds working their
way to the north tip of the island (where you park), and then watch them
launch along the axis of the causeway to the mainland as they continue
their flight northward. Pretty cool.

This morning didn't result in high numbers or a huge species count, but I
did see 2 Spotted Sandpipers, and at least one apiece Am. Redstart,
Tennessee, Ovenbird, Nashville, Chestnut-sided, Yellow-rumped, C.
Yellowthroat; Least Fly.

Cheers,
Craig K

This morning I started birding in a wetland in Dover-Foxcroft at 6:30 am. I
experienced a Warbler fallout unlike anything I have experienced before. I
saw 15 species of Warblers, plus an Ovenbird which I heard only.
Northern Parula
Wilson's Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler
American Redstart
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Canada Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Black-and-white Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Nashville Warbler
Common Yellowthroat
Blackburnian Warbler
Also, a Bay-breasted Warbler which was a life bird for me. Could someone
give me statistics on this lovely bird? I thought they were not common in
Central Maine. Thanks. I also saw a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeak.

A surprisingly birdy morning this morning at Hinckley Park which caused me
to linger almost to the point of diminishing returns (i.e. low blood sugar)
but I was glad I did.
Found a SUTA on the far side of the utility cut working the treeline and
feasting on bees. Very tame bird that allowed some phone photos that I'll
upload to my eBird report.

FOY Indigo Buntings, a Mourning Warbler, possible Yellow-bellied
Flycatcher, lots else!

A burst or two of brief sunshine finally reached the Winter Harbor area
this morning. Our small birding group was rewarded with 52 species, 18 of
which were warblers - and we did not see a Chestnut-sided Warbler. Northern
Parula were most numerous, and we found single males of the following:
Bay-breasted, Cape May, Blackpoll, Wilson's, Northern Waterthrush,
Nashville, and Tennessee. We also counted 14 Common Loon and 1 Red-throated
Loon migrating.
All before the wind gathered steam from the NW and brought a brief band of
rain, again.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Mourning Warbler @ Evergreen Cemetery, Portland
I instinctually made my way back to the now-famous brush-pile, in part out
of hope for something of interest within the (relative) dearth of activity,
then back down to the other likely spot for the KEWA, the fallen pair of
trees. When something popped up into view on a small sapling near the
upturned roots, I expected the KEWA, but quickly realized I was seeing
Mourning Warbler. It flew down into the horsetails and moments later flew
out and scaled a sapling pine, where I was able to pick up the black breast
band where the blue hood and the deep yellow underparts meet. It flew
further back and disappeared into the patch of young alders, seeming to
move back toward the utility cut. I motioned some other birders who had
appeared at the beginning of the service road and so had many sets of eyes
but it did not re-appear. First sighting was at ~7:45am.

In this kinda lackluster migration, there are still some pleasant surprises.

Subject: [Maine-birds] 20 species warbler in Florida Lake fallout, 5/20
After 14 years of birding Florida Lake Park as often as everywhere else combined in spring, I finally hit 20 species of warblers there in one morning!

I’ve hit 19 species many, many times, but could never hit the magic number. After two days in a row with 16 species at the park, Jeannette and I were not planning on heading there this am. Especially going to bed with thunderstorms around, we were not expecting a big morning. But this morning, the radar sure made it look like there were a lot birds in the air between lines of rain overnight. I was still skeptical until I had a few dozen warblers in a Morning Flight over our yard while filling the feeders early this am. So we raced over to Florida Lake Park.

It started slow, and we even considered heading elsewhere, but then the pond edges started to blow up. Here’s the scorecard:

60+ Magnolia Warblers

50+ American Redstarts

40+ Yellow-rumped Warblers

25+ Black-and-white Warblers

24 Common Yellowthroats

~18 Northern Parulas

14 Black-throated Green Warblers

11 Ovenbirds

5 Blackburnian Warblers

5 CAPE MAY WARBLERS

4 Canada Warblers

4 Black-throated Blue Warblers

4 Yellow Warblers

3 Wilson’s Warblers

3 BAY-BREASTED WARBLERS (FOY)

3 Blackpoll Warblers

3 Nashville Warblers

2 Chestnut-sided Warblers

2 Northern Waterthrushes

1 Pine Warbler (I have missed hitting 20 by Pine Warbler which breeds here on a number of occasions. We saw a silent, foraging bird on the backside of the lake to hit the milestone)

Mission accomplished!

Subject: [Maine-birds] White-faced Ibis - Portland, 20 May
Eric Topper, Maine Audubon’s Education Director, found a White-faced Ibis this morning at Payson Park in Portland. It flushed when a big orange truck passed by (around 10:50AM) and was last seen flying north but the wet ball fields may likely draw it back.

Good birding,

Subject: [Maine-birds] Brooksville Bobolinks BOBO
At least 12 Bobolinks in our field this morning. Lucia saw a few at our
house about 4 days ago, then we had 8 in our lawn eating the never ending
bird seed. But this morning there were at least 12 happily feeding in the
rain in our hay field. Before this year I have never seen more than a few
at a time. So this (though a bit anecdotal ) seems like good news!
