Subject: [Maine-birds] Webber Pond, Bremen first rwb, etc.
on the 24th, the first red-winged blackbird appeared at the feeder and it
was back again today--

on the 21st had a pileated woodpecker on the suet that hangs off the
platform feeder--this is a first for me having one actually on the feeder--
also on Wednesday, heard the doves for the first time since winter began
(they have been silent since then)

today, hairy, downy, and red-bellied woodpeckers, goldfinches, the cardinal
pair. a nuthatch. a few chickadees, and the juncos (so many this
winter--wonderful)

six crows as well

Subject: [Maine-birds] Dovekies and murres at Cliff House late yesterday and Turkey Vulture
Allison and I made a late day run down to the Cliff House in York yesterday
(2/24) and had the pleasure of watching two Dovekies and two Thick-billed
Murres up close and personal from the northern outlook. We didn’t really
try to scan the rest of the area to see if there were more as we just
enjoyed watching the ones in front of us until we had to leave. Very cool
to see them close together to see the amazing size difference.



On the way down we also saw a Turkey Vulture over I-95 in Kennebunk.

Late this afternoon, getting toward dusk there were1 THICK-BILLED MURRE and
1 RAZORBILL swimming and diving very close together just a few feet off
Crescent Beach, with barely enough surf to submerge in. The closest looks
I've ever had at both species.

Yesterday along Eastern Road in Scarborough were a Northern Harrier, 2
American Tree Sparrows, 5 Common Goldeneyes and not a lot else.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Spring Arrival Date Project
Hello all,

Many of you have contributed spring arrival dates to the monitoring project
I have been running since 1994. I have decided to end the project with the
2017 season. I am grateful to the many birders who have contributed over
63,000 arrival dates to the project.

I recently published a paper on the entire 24-year dataset. You can
download a copy at: http://web.colby.edu/whwilson/publications/

The summary paper is the second one in the list. Click on the reprint link
to download a pdf copy. You can also download copies of six other papers
from the project by scrolling down the list.

If you wish to see the 2017 data, you can use this web app to explore the
results: https://hobbes.colby.edu/arrival/

The web app provides lots of flexibility to allow one to explore the
dataset.

Best,

Herb

From: RALPH ELDRIDGE <lightrae1...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
Things have been fairly static since my last report save for two fronts.

First: ALCIDS, primarily RAZORBILLS, have begun to accumulate in the area
surrounding the island. No real rafting or large concentrations seen yet
but lots of small flocks shifting about.

Second: The SNOWY OWL traffic here this week seems to be a strong
indication that, as has been suggested elsewhere, the owls are beginning
their northward migration.
We've had at least 3 Snowys on the island this week.

The 1st stayed at least 3 days It was last observed flying towards Grand
Manan on Thursday evening.

The 2nd was here for an uncertain period but not more than 12 hours and
likely far less. It was last seen as a half consumed carcass being carried
away by an EAGLE.

The 3rd Snowy was accidently flushed from among boulders this afternoon. At
dark it was ground-perched about 200 yards from our living room window
where it had been since my disturbance.
I thought that it might move off when "our" RAVENS tried to harass it. When
the Ravens realized that the owl wasn't at all intimidated and actually
might be happy to eat one of them, they took their roadshow elsewhere.

You've hear about Hundred Year Eggs?
Not truly aged a century but still they can be several months old and quite
an edible delicacy when done correctly.
Well it seems that Ravens may have their own version of that Ming Dynasty
recipe.
Crows and their allies are well known for their penance for hiding food and
for their ability to remember and retrieve their hoards. None are better
than Ravens but we seldom see both the hiding and recovery.
Friday afternoon, after the Ravens abandoned their hazing of the Snowy Owl,
both returned to poking around the landscape. One of the Ravens decided to
examine a grass clump that I knew contained cached food and I saw it eating
what proved to be a Tern egg.
The Raven flew off with another whole egg and I found two more in the cache.
Now do the math.
Terns laid those eggs in early summer. They were abandoned, then found by
the Raven & cached in late summer. It's now late February.
Those eggs rival any Pidan at 7-8 months old.
Yum yummy!!

From: Doug Hitchcox <dhitchcox...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] SLATY-BACKED GULL - Augusta, 2/23
This afternoon I got to join a group of folks that work for City of Augusta and to look at making the Hatch Hill Landfill more accessible to birders. This location has become increasingly popular, especially for eagle photographers, so we’ll be working on a new parking area for birders and a designated birding space.

While birding wasn’t the primary purpose of the visit, I’m relieved I brought my camera along because as we walked around the fence I noticed an odd looking dark-mantled gull flying over the active section of the landfill. 16 seconds and 40 frames later I lost the gull but thought the photos looked good for Slaty-backed. My apologies for not posting from the field but I wasn’t 100% at the time; I stayed until close (4PM) and wasn’t able to relocated the bird although the birds were especially flighty. Here is my eBird list with some of the photos: ebird.org/me/view/checklist/S43120750

***Accessing the Landfill***
First, the landfill is only open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. Do not enter the landfill outside of these hours.
You must sign in at the booth before the scales as you enter. It would be good to double-check with them on where to park, generally there is space “out of the way” just past the recycling area on the right but they had us move up towards the brush piles to the left later in the day.
DO NOT ENTER THE GATED AREA. Birders are welcome to bird up to the fence but should not enter the gated area, even if there is not equipment being used at the time. Because of how the trash is currently stacked, best viewing was from the fence on the western (northwestern) side of the active area.
Also, no smoking is allowed… You might blow the whole place up and scare the bird away.
My best advice is use common sense. Be nice to the staff. I’m thrilled they are looking into making this a more birder-friendly location so let's not ruin it before we get that chance.

Good birding,

I've never seen this before. At the I-95 Old Town exit, a pileated woodpecker crossed the road at 7 this morning, landed in a crab apple, and started chowing down like he was a pine grosbeak. Weird to watch.

One winter I was out xc skiing and saw a pileated eating grapes. I had
never seen that before. Apparently it's a thing.

I've never seen this before. At the I-95 Old Town exit, a pileated woodpecker crossed the road at 7 this morning, landed in a crab apple, and started chowing down like he was a pine grosbeak. Weird to watch.

Camden this morning--my favorite sign of spring!

The Red-bellied Woodpecker that has been visiting our suet all winter is
still around, as well. When I hear that call in the morning, I close my

Subject: [Maine-birds] Maine Crossbill Challenge
As you may know Red Crossbills can be typically be identified to type by
their calls. Matt Young at Cornell Lab of Ornithology has challenged Maine
birders to find crossbills and record their calls this winter. He is
particularly interested in whether Type 3 Red Crossbills are present as far
east as Maine in this year of heavy cone crops. From Matt: "They should be
fairly common there right now I'd think, but for some reason,
nothing...they have been in Ontario, Quebec, northern NY, Vermont, NH in
solid numbers, and even a few in western Mass. Do they just not make it
that far east if they don"t have too? It's a big question for me right
now." The most common type of crossbills in Maine has been Type 10. I
believe the only documented Type 3 crossbills in Maine are from Monhegan a
few years ago. Other crossbill types are also possible in Maine. Depending
on future research, these crossbill types may be recognized as separate
species.

Recordings don't need to be fancy, voice-memo type recordings from a
smartphone are normally good enough. Audio files can be easily loaded to
eBird and they automatically create sonograms which are fun to view to get
visuals of calls and songs. Matt will identify crossbill types based on
these, his email is <may6...> It's then easy to use the
change-species feature in an eBird list to add crossbill type. Crossbills
are being seen in the western mountains, northern Maine, and coastal areas
with substantial amounts of spruce, see eBird for specific locations.
Thanks for your help with this important citizen science.

Subject: [Maine-birds] 14 Dovekies and 9 Thick-billed Murres, York through Wells, 2/19; big nearshore alcid event underway!
Hi all,

A pretty impressive Dovekie/Thick-billed Murre event is currently occurring along the coast of Maine (and south at least to Cape Ann, Massachusetts). With scattered reports of both pelagic species of late, and several reports of multiple murres and Dovekies yesterday, Jeannette and I headed out today to thoroughly survey the "Alcid Coast" of York County, focusing on the hotspots in Ogunquit and York.

We were shocked by the tally, and wondered what a lengthy seawatching stint would have produced. Here's the scoresheet:

DOVEKIES (14 total):
5 (four on water, one fly-by in distance), Marginal Way, Ogunquit.
6 (four on water, 2 flew in and landed from well offshore), The Cliff House.
1 (on water), Short Sands Beach, York
2 (one distant fly-by, one flew in from offshore and landed), The Nubble.

THICK-BILLED MURRES (9 total, all on water)
1, Marginal Way.
4 (included raft of 3), The Cliff House.
1, Short Sands Beach.
1, The Nubble.
2, Moody Point, Wells. One taken from water by Bald Eagle.

Although eating different foods, it was rather surprising that we didn't spot a single Razorbill or Black Guillemot all day!

This was my best "haul" of the rare alcids in several years, so something is up. Factors include offshore food supplies (or lack thereof), nearshore/inshore food supplies, recent storm tracks, pre- and post- storm winds (Saturday night's storm, for example, passed offshore but was not followed by long-duration and strong northwesterlies), and perhaps other factors.

In other words, it's probably worth checking just about any salt water right now. Although predation is frequent when nearshore, it's a good time to be a birder looking for alcids (not to mention a hungry Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, or large gull). Unfortunately, it's also worth looking in wrack lines and other areas where dead things could wash up.

Other highlights today:
1 Brant (FOY), Marginal Way.
74 total Harlequin Ducks
13 distant Scaup sp, The Cliff House.
1 drake Northern Pintail (FOY), Moody Marsh.

See ya at the shore!

Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
The winter doldrums continue with scattered single-bird highlights.

The CATBIRD of a week ago proved to be a one-day-wonder.

The HORNED LARK continues to forage across the island, frequenting our
lawns.

A single ROBIN appeared today, amid showers of drizzle and snow. I saw it
again a few minutes ago foraging under a boardwalk.

SONG SPARROWS seem to be holding their own with around 6 still surviving.

"Our" two RAVENS pop in and out according to their whim, although they seem
to be spending slightly more time on the island as the weeks progress. I
suspect that they are beginning to anticipate the arrival of the Alcids and
the associated fresh food.

A PEREGRINE stalked the island all of yesterday and, except for a 10 minute
staring session with the Lark, I believe the falcon's attention was
centered on PURPLE SANDPIPERS.
The P. Sandpipers continue at 100+, with many of them strewn about the
island behaving more like Woodcocks or Uplands.
I encounter them around the houses nearly every time I'm outside.

1 or 2 EAGLES are pretty much daily visitors which is winter normal.

Common elsewhere but very rare here, a mature GOSHAWK popped by this
morning, sitting down just long enough for positive identification.

HARLEQUIN DUCKS are pretty much static with about 50 present around the
island. Lots of pairing activity.

There are a handful of EIDERS, scattered RED BREASTED MERGANSERS, wandering
LONG TAILED DUCKS and occasionally a few SCOTERS.

Most days one can scrounge up a COMMON LOON or two.
Also occasional are GREAT CORMORANTS loafing on Gull Rock and small groups
travelling up and down the channel.

Gulls have been low in number lately but a few are usually within sight. As
expected, HERRING & GREAT BLACK BACKED GULLS dominate but it's usually easy
to spot ICELAND GULLS and occasionally a GLAUCOUS GULL.
KITTIWAKES have been scarce lately and, combined with depressed gull
numbers, would seem to indicate little local feed at the moment.

ALCIDS have been spotty, too.

GREY SEALS are slowly increasing. I have yet see any pups. While Grey Seals
occasionally pup in this area, by far the majority are born in New England,
usually in January & February so it is still quite early for the wee ones
to have made the trip across the Gulf Of Maine.

Hi all,

Yesterday, I spent some time birding along Rt. 26 and Rt. 16 in Oxford
County. I saw/heard many PINE SISKINS, PURPLE FINCHES, WHITE-WINGED
CROSSBILLS, and RED CROSSBILLS, with several flocks first seen picking
grit at the edge of both highways.

On Rt. 16, near Turner Rd., in Lower Cupsuptic Township I had a close
encounter with a pair of vocal BOREAL CHICKADEES. Also along Rt. 16,
but in Magalloway Plantation, 3+ GRAY JAYS were active with 5+ BLUE
JAYS at the food scrap pile opposite the Trading Post Restaurant.

Assuming, Bob, that the pigeon was eaten, I'd say that it was still there,
just tucked away inside the raptor and fully reportable.
eBird aside, the speedsters always put on quite a show.

We've been lucky and able to get over to the Schoodic for several birding
outings. Highlights of our jaunts include one Dovekie and two Razorbills
off Blueberry Trail parking lot, and, of course, the Rough-legged Hawk and
2 Snowy Owls on Schoodic Island. We also finally found the female Barrow's
Goldeneye associating with 7 Common Goldeneye in the cove to the north of
Rolling Island as it merges into Wonsqueak Harbor (close to the end of the

Today there seemed to be a lot more Great Black-backed Gulls around (at

Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
I returned to the island on Wednesday last but station activities have
kept me from wandering about very much. Except for brief periods, usually
only hours, the ground remains snow free and not completely frozen.

It is apparent that we still have 4-6 SONG SPARROWS surviving. A HORNED
LARK is spending time around the lawns and PURPLE SANDPIPERS can be readily
seen all over the island.
That makes for interesting juxtapositions like the Horned Lark, a Purple
Sandpiper and a Song Sparrow foraging together on our patio or a CATBIRD
chasing along with P. Sandpipers as they search the lawn and boardwalks for
food.
The Catbird just arrived yesterday (Sunday) as doesn't seem to have found
citrus or jelly offerings.

The Purple Sandpipers are almost a nuisance. Just walking between
buildings virtually guarantees encounters with the little buggers. They
tend to run along, keeping just 6-10 feet ahead, protesting loudly about
being interrupted. In true PS style, they are very reluctant to take flight.

The winter compliment of HARLEQUIN DUCKS is still evident and my rough
estimates make me think that the numbers continue on par with earlier
observations and counts from recent years. EIDERS are normal with a few
scattered around.

A couple EAGLES have done fly-bys but air traffic has made it hard for
them to stop and hunt.

Gulls and other water birds are generally at low-normal levels except
that I've seen what might be the first hint of RAZORBILLS spending time
closer to the island.

Earlier we had 3 dozen cedar waxwings on Water St. in Augusta--plus more in

Subject: [Maine-birds] Mew Gull update, Eastport
The mew gull briefly returned to the rocks beside Lighthouse Lobster in
Eastport this morning. It arrived around 9:15AM and preened for 10
minutes, then flew to the beach to forage. An eagle flew over shortly
afterwards and flushed all of the gulls. Woody Gillies joined me on the
stakeout from 10AM - 11AM and the mew gull did not return while we were
there. Other gulls roosting on the rocks in the AM were 75 herring gulls,
13 ring-billed gulls, 6 Iceland gulls, and two great black-backs. And a
peregrine falcon was perched in an apple tree on the cliffs overlooking the
beach.

The gulls seem to prefer to use this roost in the morning. High tide
tomorrow is at 8AM and the rocks should be exposed by 9-9:30AM.

A photo of the mew gull from this morning can be seen
here: https://flic.kr/p/23b9quE

Heads up, there's a mew gull roosting on the rocks in front of my house
with other large gulls. I think it's a common gull (L. c. canus) based on
size and shade of gray, but we can ponder this later. It's located on the
shore adjacent to Lighthouse Lobster, 1 County Road, Eastport. I posted a
few photos here:

I spotted a red-shouldered hawk perched on a power line beside Route 1 in
Nobleboro yesterday afternoon, February 8th. The hawk was overlooking a
field on the south side of the road next to Maine-ly Sewing. The bird flew
to the tree line in the back of the field, which may be easier to scout

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Norm Famous
I am so sorry to hear this news.  I never met Norm, but we e-mailed periodically, and I so enjoyed his reports of the magical happenings on Rod Road, to say nothing of the spring peeper who overwintered in his plant room!  He was always a gentleman and very informative. I hope that his family knows about the lives that he touched so positively even just in passing.Thank you, Norm, and wonderful travels...

Norm was the first birder, almost the first person, that I met when I moved to East Machias in 1982--he was living just around the corner in Machiasport.  I was new to the Northeast, and Norm shared his love and knowledge of the marshes, bogs, mudflat, coastal islands, and all such.  It was the start of a long friendship.
Here's the short notice for the Bangor Daily News and Portland Press Herald.  -------------

Norman Charles Famous passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 28, 2018. A viewing will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, from 2pm to 5pm at the Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant Street in Augusta, Maine (www.plummerfh.com).  In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Good Shepherd Food Bank (www.gsfb.org), the Eastern Maine Conservation Initiative (www.emcimaine.org), or the Downeast Coastal Conservancy (www.downeastcoastalconservancy.org).

Norm requested that his ashes be spread on the mudflats along the Machias River during the fall migration so the shorebirds could carry him all over the world.  A memorial celebration of Norm’s life will be held at a later date in Machias.  For more information, contact Marcia Spencer Famous at 207-623-6072 or <mspencerfamous...> .

In AR flickers wait until the most abundant food is dried up sumac berries,

Although I usually focus on northern Maine, I have to admit that the

you go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFwtSgzkwSo.



If you are familiar, just skip to minute 6 and watch some frisky Harlequin
Ducks. I don't know what it is with these guys - they don't nest here - but
I've seen them actually copulating in midwinter off Marginal Way in

From: Charles Duncan <charles.d.duncan...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] Norm Famous
I'm sorry to have to convey the sad news that long-time birder and
naturalist Norm Famous died unexpectedly last Sunday, January 28.

Norm was the first birder, almost the first person, that I met when I moved
to East Machias in 1982--he was living just around the corner in
Machiasport. I was new to the Northeast, and Norm shared his love and
knowledge of the marshes, bogs, mudflat, coastal islands, and all such. It
was the start of a long friendship.

Here's the short notice for the Bangor Daily News and Portland Press
Herald.
-------------

Norman Charles Famous passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 28, 2018.
A viewing will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, from 2pm to 5pm at the
Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant Street in Augusta, Maine (
www.plummerfh.com). In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Good
Shepherd Food Bank (www.gsfb.org), the Eastern Maine Conservation
Initiative (www.emcimaine.org), or the Downeast Coastal Conservancy (
www.downeastcoastalconservancy.org).

Norm requested that his ashes be spread on the mudflats along the Machias
River during the fall migration so the shorebirds could carry him all over
the world. A memorial celebration of Norm’s life will be held at a later
date in Machias. For more information, contact Marcia Spencer Famous at
207-623-6072 or <mspencerfamous...> .

Hey Roger

Off of Aviatation Blvd is a parking and viewing area, found here
<https://www.google.com/maps/place/Portland+International+Jetport/@43.6421424,-70.309236,367m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xfbc7a5854bf63ecf!8m2!3d43.6464785!4d-70.3096974>.
It is a convenient place to park and view the area. While it doesn't allow
you to see the entire Jetport, it does give you a good view of about half
of it. This is where I usually go to see the Snowy Owls and am usually
successful here. You can often find Snow Buntings here as well.

To all coming down to the Jetport to see the Snowy Owls, please be aware of
the impact we have as birders. I ran across this article last night and it
looks like the Jetport has its concerns. Please make sure you obey all
posted signs and use good common sense when looking for these birds. We
obviously do not want to jeopardize the birds or jetport operations in the
process.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: Snowy Owls (2), South Portland (Jetport)
Brought my mother over just before 4PM to see the Snowy Owl and found 4 in
total. One was still at the Mac Jets building rotating between its apparent
home base of the snow mount just in front of the MAC Jets building on
Aviation Blvd., and several of the telephone poles in the area. Figuring at
least one more was around, we scanned the field and found a second in the
distance at the junction of runways 29 and 36. There was a lot of buzz with
birders and non-birders alike while there. Was happy to see many new faces,
many with their children stopping in to catch a glimpse of the visitor from
the north. Lots of people asking questions and everyone was courteous as
they excitedly shared their observations. Hopefully we will see some of
these kids and their parents out on the trails/parks/coasts in the future!
After leaving this spot, we ventured down to the end of Aviation Blvd.
where there may have been another bird but it was just too far to tell with
my optics. Giving up we headed out down Jetport Plaza Road and saw 2 more
on light structures along the perimeter road inside the airport fence. I
wasn't sure if I might have missed the first of these two relocating while
scanning further so we doubled back between them to confirm it really was a
4 owl day. Drove around Jetport Blvd. and found a Red-Tailed Hawk in the
swampy area at the corner near the Hilton Garden Inn.

I can easily see why people have been creating images of this bird for at
least the last 17000 years. It truly is inspiring...

Cheers,
Rob

Subject: [Maine-birds] Snowy Owls still at Jetport; Falcons, Accipiters, Dovekie, etc
Freeport -> Cape Elizabeth (with a quick loop up to the airport) and back
again ... Lots of crows out today. I passed over a dozen groupings of 4-10
birds along 295 southbound. Four redtail hawks (adults near exits 22, 15,
and 5; and an immature about a mile s of the adult at 15).

At least two snowy owls are still hanging around the Portland Jetport and
nearby Correctional Facility (one on the fence) - had some nice sightings a
bit after noon today. While looking for the snowy there was a flying
peregrine way to the south and a large buteo with some gulls (thinking
redtail, didn't have the gestalt of baldie, and it might have been the
redtail from exit 5). Looking at the map, there's an argument for this
being one of the peregrines I sighted half an hour later at Casco Bay
Bridge.

Adult peregrine on one of the transmission towers at the Casco Bay Bridge;
adult-or-immature peregrine on another one of the towers. The pullouts
along Waterman Drive and Thomas Knight Park gave great views.

As other notes posted here, the Dovekie at Cape Elizabeth was seen off and
on for several hours ("There he is! Oooops he went under again"), be
patient and keep scanning and you'll luck out and happen to be looking at
the point where it pops up for air for a whole 2 seconds. A group of
Harlequins wandered back and forth close to shore giving some great view
acting as reference landmarks for the dovekie ("It just came up to the left
of the harlequins about 15 feet closer than the long-tailed duck oh it just
went down again"), An Atlantic Puffin floated through, dove a few times,
and had a bunch of us thinking for a while that it was the dovekie until
folks calmed down and started thinking clearly.

I'm still rusty at non-raptors, but other people identified razorbill,
great cormorant, rednecked grebe, "probably a murre" and "one of the
loons". Plus all of the other usual suspects re: waterbirds.

Driving around Cape Elizabeth/Kettle Point yielded a few more raptor finds
- adult bald eagle, a merlin, adult sharp-shinned hawk, 2x Cooper's hawks
(1 adult, 1 immature).

As of 0750 this morning one bird could be seen from Lydia Lane. It was across the runway, on the ground near where the FedEx planes are parked.

Second bird was sitting on the curved fencing of the youth correctional facility right at it’s entrance off of Westbrook Street.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Snowy Owls (2), South Portland (Jetport)

Late afternoon (4:30) around the Jetport,Fire Gate 3, at the junction of Jetport Plaza Rd & Westbrook St had a great, long (~30 minutes) view of a snowy inside the jetport. It was sitting on the stop sign next to the runway, actively looking around yet completely ignoring the landing jets hurtling by a mere few dozen yards away. (I wonder if any passengers noticed?)

The second bird was visible while parked at the same location, but not as nice a view. #2 was perched on the top of the base of a landing light well to the left (west), more of a greyish-white blob without a scope. Bird #1 regularly looked over at #2 but didn't seem perturbed.

#1 took off at 5pm while I was looking at #2 (don't you hate it when you take the glasses away for just 30 seconds and it's GONE when you look back?). #2 was still in its place 5 minutes later when I finished up and left.

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Snowy Owls (3) - South Portland, 1/25
Hey All, after returning home last night on a midnight flight, I opted to do a quick scan of the jetport area for the snowy owls reported earlier. I was able to locate one on the tall tower off jetport plaza road, just in from fire gate 4. It was actively scanning from its perch so I did not stay but for a few minutes. I believe it was benefiting from the glow of the tower while scanning as I have found them at this location with some frequency. Apologies for the late report but I was not sure how many would be reading email at 1AM and figured by sunrise it would have relocated somewhere else at the jetport for the day. Good to check the area though!

Thanks,
Rob O'Connell

There were two visible at the southeast end of the Portland International Jetport, viewed from Lydia Ln, an extension of Brickhill Ave. The most surprising was the first bird we saw, perched on a light post along I-295 directly across from Exit 4 (on the southbound side). You should obviously be responsible driving and watch the road but anyone driving on 295 south of Portland might want to peak at lamp posts.

Northern Pintail (m) mixed in with my mallards again today. Also a Pine Siskin mixed in with the A. Goldfinches. Don't know where all the finches came from today (150+) as the flock was double the usual size (75).
