Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: Ovenbird in Wells, ME
I'm delighted to see Elizabeth's quotation from Robert Frost's poem, "The
Ovenbird." I learned it by heart long ago, and the last two lines are
especially relevant today: "The question that he frames in all but words/Is
what to make of a diminished thing."

Subject: [Maine-birds] CLARK’S GREBE - Augusta, 8/9
The grebe is still hanging out in the northeastern end of the lake as of this evening. The fates aligned as I had plans for an afternoon boat ride with relatives who live on Togus. We (and a kayaker) got good looks of the bird off one of the lakes smaller islands. After seeing the grebe at a distance, the bird dove and resurfaced just a few yards ahead of our boat. We backed off and continued our boat ride, but I saw the bird at a distance in the same general area as we returned to the dock around 5:30.

Refound in north end of Togus Pond it can be seen today only from 44 Albee Rd (near well marked 36) There is construction being done on the house and the very generous homeowners welcome birders today but not during the workweek. Bird may also be visible on opposite site of cove from Young Rd.

Clark’s Grebe has been seen but very, very distantly and unsatisfyingly, toward the north end of Togus pond. Folks have been looking from Route 105, In the direction of a microwave tower and camps on that side of the road a mile or more distant. A few folks have headed out by car to see if there might be a better vantage point.

A CLARK’S GREBE that was photographed yesterday (8 Aug) by Tom Renckens on Togus Pond in Augusta (posted on Facebook) is currently (7:45AM) visible from Route 105 along the south end of the pond, looking north towards “Griffin Point”.

Traffic is picking up on 105 and parking is limited on the narrow shoulders so be careful!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Maine Bird Atlas - Weekly Challenges, 8/7
Hi everyone:

Last week's results:

This is the last week of challenges but there is still plenty of atlasing to be done. I highly recommend everyone reads our latest blog post on “Atlasing in August” for tips on what to look for and common errors that we see this time of the year: https://www1.maine.gov/wordpress/ifwbirdatlas/2020/08/06/august-atlasing-tips/
Last week’s challenges proved to be a little tough but good results came in. Hermit Thrushes picked up 9 new confirmed blocks and Barred Owls added two. Priority Block completion continues to rise too, with now over 32% complete. Congratulations to Donna from Brunswick, Rob from Cumberland, and Sean from Wiscasset for being chosen by Excel’s random number generator as winners this week!

Here are the challenges for this week:

1) Wild Turkey - one of the few species we have not moved out of the safe dates for (read the blog above!) but a pretty easy one to confirm as poults will follow their mothers around. Report your confirmed codes (probably all FL) this week!

2) Priority Block Challenge - Find an incomplete Priority Block near you and work on confirmed breeding codes, especially for late nesting species. To track this challenge, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/tobv2xBvW82N3BAW9 <https://forms.gle/tobv2xBvW82N3BAW9>

3) American Goldfinch - Repeating from a couple week ago because 1) we are still within the safe dates so all codes apply, and 2) this is actually a hard species to confirm. I saw my first fledgling just yesterday, so keep an eye out for them this week!

Good birding and happy atlasing!

I know it's August because I have at least 20 barn swallows zooming around

Having done some additional research, I think the bird I tentatively
identified as a Spotted Redshank may have been a molting Ruff. The bill on
the bird I saw fits that of a Ruff better (shorter and not as thin). The
black feathers on the white breast and the reddish legs also fit those of a
Ruff. Again I would welcome any additional thoughts. Danny Danforth (

In mid-afternoon of August 5 in the pannes off Eastern Trail in Scarborough
Marsh, I saw what I have tentatively identified as a Spotted Redshank. I
had scope views of it with Lesser Yellowlegs and Semipalmated Sandpipers
and Plovers nearby. The two most notable features of the bird were its
white breast with five or six large black spots on both sides and its red
legs (tending toward orange). I base my identification primarily on these
two features. It was slightly larger than the Lesser Yellowlegs nearby. The
bill was black near the tip and reddish orange near the base. It didn't
look as long and thin as the guide books suggest. The scapulars were scaly
- gray fringed with white, and the lesser coverts were darker black fringed
with white. Unfortunately I have no photographs. I would welcome any

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Re: Cuckoo
Uh oh. Did I commit an error to memory? I guess I should have brushed up on
cuckoo sounds before this summer, because I've been putting the wrong label
on those single-note repeaters. Fortunately, my memory is not totally wiped
and I can put myself back into most of the places I've encountered cuckoos
-- more than I've ever found in a year -- over the past couple of months.
One thing is certain: I have seen or heard both species at some of those
locations.

The repeated single note call is a Yellow-Billed, and I've been hearing

map shows them in abundance for 2020. Perhaps there is a caterpillar
infestation drawing them? I've read they have a population bump when

Not an unusual sighting, but I enjoyed seeing three sandhill cranes in a

Subject: [Maine-birds] Whimbrels at Flat Bay, Harrington
This morning on the early tide we saw 30 Whimbrel fly in to the mudflats
from the south and start feeding in a frenzy! But 26 of them left within 15
minutes of their arrival, flying north and gaining altitude. About 20
minutes later we heard flight calls and then observed 15 birds flying
north. Then more flight calls from the south but we couldn’t find the birds
- sometimes the flight calls seem to bounce all around.

The birds were obviously heading towards the blueberry barrens of Columbia
and/or Cherryfield where IDFW bios have observed them in the past.

So, the Whimbrel are here but their arrivals and departures to and from the
Flat Bay mudflats seem to be more serendipitous than our past experience
with these birds!!! We have seen them only 4 times since July 28 when we
first saw them.

Semipalmated Plover, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Shirt-billed Dowitchers and
Black-bellied Plover are starting to appear in greater numbers - in the
hundreds now....soon to be thousands...

Subject: [Maine-birds] Little Blue Heron in Aroostook Co
This weekend Aaron Beechy reported a white wader had been seen by members
of the Amish bird group in Hodgdon in Aroostook county. The bird was
tentatively ID'ed as a juvenile Little Blue Heron.

I was in the area for work today and stopped in at the farm. Aaron and the
boys proudly led me to a remote farm pond to see the bird. Though we
unfortunately flushed it as we arrived, it landed on a distant snag and I
was able to see the bird well enough to confirm their ID.

I believe this to be a county first and the northern-most record of the
species in the state. (Wish there was a book that had these types of state
and county records listed...😉)

You can see my bad pics in the the list:

Can't wait to see what the tropical storm drops.

Good birding

Subject: [Maine-birds] Hills Beach Biddeford Pool
Shorebird numbers are starting to increase with Black-bellied Plover, Ruddy Turnstone, Short-billed Dowitcher, Semipalmated Sandpiper, and Semipalmated Plover in decent numbers along Basket Island.

Howeve I’m hoping for some ID help after a very dramatic four-species bird encounter. I was watching a House Finch (FY-Feeding Young) feed a very young “flopper” Brown-headed Cowbird (FL-Recently Fledged) in the middle of the road on Sky Harbor Drive, when suddenly an accipiter sp. (Coop/Sharpie) was practically on top of my head. It dropped a carcass right next to me, grabbed the juvie BH Cowbird and flew off (CF-carrying food). The House Finch was the winner all around, because it escaped. So I’d like to see if anyone can ID the carcass—and potentially ID the accipiter. It felt like a Coop, but I barely saw it and was under an attack of disgust having a carcass almost dropped on my head and surprise of the cowbird being snatched feet from me. My best guess is a nestling that didn’t make it. It would appear to have talons, long relatively thick yellow legs, and some cinnamon feathering which would be consistent with juvie Coop. Or is it something else entirely? Can anyone definitely ID this from the photos in the checklist?

Subject: [Maine-birds] Maine Bird Atlas - Weekly Challenges, 8/1
Hi everyone:

Last week's results:

The breeding season is winding down so I’ll only be doing one more week of challenges. American Goldfinch is surprisingly difficult to confirm given how abundant they are, and almost all the 13 confirmed records submitted this week were in new blocks. 5 confirmed Indigo Bunting records gave a good bump to that species total. And we did it! We hit 30% Priority Blocks complete. This is a good milestone to hit but we’ve still got a long way to go and we’ll only get there with your help. Congratulations to Jane from Cushing, Tom from Unity, and Reed from Portland for being chosen by Excel’s random number generator as winners this week!

Here are the challenges for this week:

1) Hermit Thrush - Keep an eye out for this thrush, known to get late broods in. The other important part of this challenge is that we are exiting the safe dates for many species (Hermit Thrush ends 8/1) so you should no longer use Possible (S & H) or lower Probable (S7, M, & P) for those species.

2) Priority Block Challenge - Find an incomplete Priority Block near you and work on confirmed breeding codes, especially for late nesting species. To track this challenge, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/tobv2xBvW82N3BAW9 <https://forms.gle/tobv2xBvW82N3BAW9>

3) Barred Owl - I’ve received a bunch of reports of calling juvenile Barred Owls (usually misidentified as similar sounding Barn Owls) lately, and in many cases these are still young birds dependent on adults, which can be coded FL - Recently Fledged Young.

Good birding and happy atlasing!

It was just a casual morning boat trip into the Pushaw Lake inlet marsh in Hudson today. A flying least bittern landed in plain view on a tall stump. This is the fourth one I’ve seen in there this year, but it’s the first youngster – confirmed for the Maine Bird Atlas.



Darker, streakier, downy fluff on headtop. And clueless. It stood high, in plain view, for several minutes, unwary of any potential danger.

my daughter, Sarah Scamperle, discovered a colony of chimney swifts using the chimney of an unoccupied house in Bucksport. there were 40 -50 of them swirling around the chimney last night, occasionally one would drop into the opening until there were only 15 or 20 circling. They continued to circle until we left, often drifting out of sight - from a different colony?

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Carolina Wren, Harpswell, ME 7/29/20
I confirmed this evening that Carolina wrens are working on their third
brood in our Berwick yard this year. With this kind of productivity and
fewer brutal winters to knock them back, they'll lose that "rare" status
pretty quickly, I'd guess.

We've lived here 20 years, but the wrens were not here at first. Gradually,
they went from now and then to regular to permanent. Through 2012, they
were mostly around September to March. In May 2013, I spotted a family
moving through. In 2015 they nested in or near our yard. Over the past 6
years, I have failed to note them during only 1 month and that might have
been due to my laziness.

This year they had fledglings before the Maine bird atlas "safe date," got
a second nest going in the first week of June, fledged those young July
4/5, and have 4 eggs in nest three. They've gotten bolder through the
season. I don't know where the first nest was, but the second was in our
garage and the third is in a planter on our porch. (They get pretty mad
when it's time to water.)

Hey Bob,

Interesting on the crossbills. My atlas work around Waldo county has turned up flyovers fairly frequently during the last week also. Hope that this may mean that we could get more around this fall!

Good birding,

I detect a change of season. For the third time this morning, I’ve heard a handful of red crossbills overhead here on the north end of Pushaw Lake in Hudson. They’re certainly around this summer. I’ve been getting them on my bird atlas surveys farther north. But they haven’t been noisy around here until just now.

Meanwhile, a family of white-breasted nuthatches continues to chow down on my suet, with parents feeding young. This is 5+ weeks after nuthatch families were first detected milling around here. According to online literature, nuthatches raise only one brood per year. So either this is an unlikely second brood, or a late re-nest, or really, really dependent children. Since, the family-feeding activity wasn’t detected again until recently, I’m going with the re-nest scenario.

Yes, same in Kennebec County over the last week, and two weeks ago in southern Oxford County. There's a big white pine cone crop around here with lots of green cones. Maybe some of the crossbills will breed in white pine groves in central and southern Maine for their late-summer breeding cycle. That would be exciting.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Swallow Swarm
Nice morning to visit the Pushaw Lake inlet marsh in Hudson. I was greeted by a swarm of around 150 swallows. The majority were tree, but there was a healthy percentage of bank and barn, and a handful of cliff.



At the same time, there was a black-billed cuckoo calling incessantly from the treeline.

Hey Bob,

Interesting on the crossbills. My atlas work around Waldo county has
turned up flyovers fairly frequently during the last week also. Hope that
this may mean that we could get more around this fall!

Good birding,

Subject: [Maine-birds] Red crossbills
I detect a change of season. For the third time this morning, I’ve heard a handful of red crossbills overhead here on the north end of Pushaw Lake in Hudson. They’re certainly around this summer. I’ve been getting them on my bird atlas surveys farther north. But they haven’t been noisy around here until just now.



Meanwhile, a family of white-breasted nuthatches continues to chow down on my suet, with parents feeding young. This is 5+ weeks after nuthatch families were first detected milling around here. According to online literature, nuthatches raise only one brood per year. So either this is an unlikely second brood, or a late re-nest, or really, really dependent children. Since, the family-feeding activity wasn’t detected again until recently, I’m going with the re-nest scenario.

through the woods until he was driven away, the eagle with the fish eating
off a point in Trenton that I watched bird photographers walk so close that
the drove him off causing him to lose his catch the Snowl owl at BH Airport
that sat atop the telephone pole that I watched people circle the pole some
cooing up to him “ what a sweet birdie” until he too flew. I could go on.
Common decency should always be the priority. Respect for other people as
well as the birds

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] Nesting interference
I totally agree with Kristen and Craig; we are not entitled to do as we please on another's property. If nothing else common courtesy should be the unspoken default. More importantly is the long and short term effects on the bird/birds themselves. The few times when I have made a special trip to see a particular bird there always seems to be someone intent on getting closer or in some way intrusive in the bird's space. In particular the crowds around the Black Hawk a couple of years back were painful to see-who is to say that if left alone it might of had a better chance for survival. How can you say you love birds when you are most likely directly harming them with your actions? I am sorry to say that I would probably not report a special sighting in my area except to a select few; the folks that would come to my place were always respectful but what I have seen in the last few years dampens my enthusiasm for future sighting reports.

What Kristen said! I am grateful for this part of Kristen's reply in particular: "What may be “well within my rights” is not always right."

Any persistent visitation to a nesting bird by multiple birders is by definition harassment. We are often put in the predicament, as birders, to choose how much harassment to inflict on the subjects of our passion. 'Less' should be our default decision.

Subject: Fwd: [Maine-birds] Nesting interference
Forgive me, and maybe I’m way off base here—but regardless of your thoughts
about private property, this may not be the best tactic to employ as a
birder. What may be “well within my rights” is not always right. And
nothing gives birders as a group a worse reputation than someone getting
publicly called out for pissing off a home/landowner—which makes the next
person who finds a rare bird on their property that much more likely to
prohibit visitors. “But your land wasn’t posted” is not a viable excuse.

With reference to the Mississippi Kites in NH, these landowners DID express
disapproval with people’s behavior. Did they have their lawns posted? Does
that even matter? Someone “exercising their rights” and pissing someone off
by chasing a bird through (unmarked) private property is only going to make
it that much harder for the next birder(s) who comes along. Our property
system here in ME generally works well for birders because most of us are

I attached the recording to my eBird checklist, which also includes details on the CWWI observation. The mystery sound occurs at 0:11 and again at 0:24. Please let me know what you all think because I’m feeling kind of stumped.

I did have a Red-eyed Vireo at camp for two seasons that said
"chik-burr" just like a Scarlet Tanager.

This bird, however, is intermingling mimic calls of barn swallows and the local Broad-winged hawk between somewhat muddled here-I-ams calls. So I can't find much on Red-eyeds mimicry but there is some on Warbling vireos copying red eyeds. So, do I have a creative Warbling copying a Red eyed and other birds, or a talented Red-eyed?
