Subject: [Maine-birds] This Week's Highlights and Goose Fields Update, 11/10-16
Hi all,
My observations of note, limited by weather and free time, over the past seven days included:
- 8 species of native sparrows have been at our feeders here at the store this week, including a tardy adult White-crowned Sparrow continuing through 11/12 with a new immature arriving on the 16th; 1 Chipping Sparrow arriving on 11/13, with a second on 11/14 and both continuing through 11/15; and a Fox Sparrow all week. One Swamp Sparrow continuing through 11/12 is an unusual feeder visitor for us here.
- 2 "Yellow" Palm Warblers, 11 Black-bellied Plovers, etc, Wolfe's Neck Center, 11/11.
- Peak's Island, 11/12:
1 ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER
1 GRAY CATBIRD
2 Winter Wrens
2 Ruby-crowned Kinglets
3 Chipping Sparrows
1 Brown-headed Cowbird
- Sabattus Pond, Sabattus, 11/15:
457 Ruddy Ducks
186 Mallards
100+ Common Mergansers
82 American Black Ducks
64 Hooded Mergansers
55 Greater Scaup
53 Canada Geese
32 Lesser Scaup
15 Buffleheads
5 LONG-TAILED DUCKS
4 Mallard x black duck hybrids
4 Common Goldeneyes
3 Ring-necked Ducks
1 Great Blue Heron
1 Common Loon

Meanwhile, in the Greater Yarmouth Goose Fields, the adult GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE continued through at least the beginning of the week, but there have been no additional sightings of the CACKLING GOOSE I found there last week. Overall, Canada Goose numbers were down, with a high count of merely 342 on 11/14. I expect another wave to arrive with accumulating snow and ice to our north now.

-Derek

My project to rebuild my feeder station came down to the wire, and having been down for a bit, the birds were slow to arrive, but they are starting to show up. The surprise for me was when shoveling the drive, having a Carolina Wren pop out of the woodpile. Now bring on the finches!

From: RALPH ELDRIDGE <lightrae1...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT
I returned to Machias Seal yesterday, November 13th. It's my 1st rotation
since I left in late August.

Lots of expected, seasonal changes: the seabird colony is empty until next
spring; all but the very latest south-bound migrants have moved through and
our winter residents are arriving from the North.
What is unusual for here, but keeping in line with what's being experienced
on the Mainland, our Sparrow/Finch/Grosbeak numbers would likely equal the
total for several "normal" winters.

The tone was set as I left home in Saint George where I've been
entertaining a large troop of JUNCOS, numerous WHITE THROATED & SONG
SPARROWS, several young WHITE CROWNED SPARROWS, scattered CHIPPING SPARROWS
and several TREE SPARROWS. Everywhere along my route to Saint Stephen
sparrows were easy to spot, as were flocks of finches and grosbeaks. A
flock of SNOWBUNTINGS greeted me at the airport and other flocks were
identifiable during the flight to the island.

We flushed a small group of Snow Buntings as we landed and an unusual
number of late-season sparrows was immediately evident, both in totals and
variety. As well, there were numerous ROBINS, 3 GRACKLES, a couple each of
GOLD & PURPLE FINCHES.
Shortly after arrival I noticed a sparrow fluffed up & sitting just outside
the kitchen window. Nothing exceptional and I almost ignored it. Finally my
brain kicked in an I realized how big the thing was ...... definitely not a
sparrow. Female PINE GROSBEAK.
As the species is often wont to do this lady was okay with me standing 4
feet away and having a conversation (albeit one sided). She was probably
wondering how she ended up on an island that hasn't hosted a real tree for
15 or 20 thousand years.

A PEREGRINE FALCON explored the island but neither it nor the SHARP SHINNED
HAWK that flared just outside the livingroom did much to stop the ground
feeders from scoffing millet and oil seed as the day faded.

Aquatic activity was somewhat difficult to gauge as the wind continued
strong and sea rough. Several GANNETS, sub-adult and adult, were observed
adjacent to the island, both cruising and plunge-diving.
I've seen a few ducks around. The sea conditions have made it difficult to
assess the numbers but I'm of the opinion that COMMON EIDERS, RED BREASTED
MERGANSERS & GULLS are about winter-normal while HARLEQUIN DUCKS haven't
reached full winter population.
A couple COMMON LOONS were spotted, as well as scattered CORMORANTS. The
cormorants are still a late-season mixture of DOUBLE-CRESTED & GREAT but
Greats will soon be almost exclusive.
PURPLE SANDPIPERS have arrived, although I have no idea of numbers yet and
no opportunity to check for other, lingering, species.

It's now full light on Friday morning. We have moderate snow ... that
heavy, sticky kind, driven by 35 - 40 knot wind .... not good for the few
birds trying to refuel.
Even 4 SNOW BUNTINGS gleaning on the lawn have been hard put to maintain a
toe-hold.

From: 'Doug Hitchcox' via Maine birds <maine-birds...>
Subject: [Maine-birds] Gilsland Farm Bird Walk, 11/15
A chilly start to the bird walk at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth was easily overcome by the quality of the birds! A skim of ice over the pond and around the edges of the river was a “first of fall” sighting here and a large push of Canada Geese made clear how extensive the freeze was. Three flavors of merganser were in the river and two Greater Scaup highlighted the waterfowl sightings - the latter being surprisingly uncommon given the numbers that overwinter near Mackworth.

The biggest excitement came when we got to the North Meadow: A late American Bittern was briefly seen flying north over the meadow so we decided to cut across the unmowed section to get better views. Just before getting to the peak of the meadow, a Short-eared Owl (my 217th species for Gilsland) flushed from the grass! The bird spent several minutes flying high overhead and eventually north above Route 1.

Also of note but not nearly as exciting an experience was a single Common Redpoll heard calling in a group of American Goldfinches that flew overhead while in the West Meadow. Our Pine Siskin flock has moved on and even Purple Finches were absent this morning but the redpoll was a nice sign of the predicted finch flight this winter.

A complete list from the walk is available here: https://ebird.org/me/view/checklist/S49949035

There will be no walk next week (off for the holiday) and we will switch to an 8:00AM start on November 29th.

Good birding,

Subject: [Maine-birds] Late Black-crowned Night Heron, SMCC and others
This evening there was an adult BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON on the SMCC
Campus, on the mini-beach between the marina and the fish pier, very close
to the walking trails. Jeff :Webb had reported one still here less than a
week ago, but I was surprised that it would still be around. Reported on
eBird but I will be surprised if they accept it, based on two other current
sightings I've reported there.

I re-reported 2 CATTLE EGRETS on the 10th from Wells Road but the eBird
hotspot hasn't updated although I photographed and took notes on the three
I saw on the 7th, my previous visit. List
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49744969 . On the 10th I drove around a
couple of times looking for the third, but it was nowhere in sight and the
remaining 2 appeared to be sheltering themselves from the cold near some
buildings. So the last sighting of rarities which I saw and submitted
notes on only 3 days earlier was excluded by eBird for some reason
(sunspots?)

Finally a late LINCOLN'S SPARROW seen by Jeff and myself at Crescent Beach
on Sunday Nov. 11th was feeding along the paths with an American Tree
Sparrow and a Junco (additionally 2 Savannahs were seen at Kettle Cove the
same day). A species I've seen dozens of times and am quite familiar
with, though they are sometimes hard to get a camera on in a brushy
area...in my lifetime I've only gotten one ID-able photo of a Lincoln's,
ever.. Again, eBird won't allow the hotspot to be updated even though 2
of us saw this bird at close range and I submitted notes...

Subject: [Maine-birds] Dovekies galore around Mount Desert Rock
I had the privilege today of joining College of the Atlantic¹s marine mammal
research organization, Allied Whale, on a search and recovery trip: a dead,
large whale had been reported in the vicinity of Mount Desert Rock, 25 miles
offshore. I went along to lend another pair of eyes to search for the whale.
Alas, after a long day on the water, we did not find the whale, but I did
manage to find a good list of pelagic bird species! Highlights include: 13
Dovekie, 1 Great Skua, and 1 King Eider.

Below is my complete day¹s list, from the time we left Bar Harbor until
sunset:

52 Canada Geese ­ A skein of 52 flew low to the water about 40 miles
offshore.
6 American Black Duck
1 King Eider ­ A lone King Eider was in the middle of a flock of 5
White-winged Scoter.
31 Common Eider
10 Surf Scoter
5 White-winged Scoter
4 Black Scoter
1 scoter sp.
4 Bufflehead
1 Great Skua ­ Several of us had good looks at a Great Skua that landed
close to the research vessel.
13 Dovekie ­ The surprise of the day was so many Dovekies! Very cool!
2 Common Murre
2 Black Guillemot
2 Atlantic Puffin
6 Black-legged Kittiwake
113 Herring Gull
7 Great Black-backed Gull
5 Red-throatd Loon ­ Five Red-throated Loon flew past in sloppy formation.
7 Common Loon
97 Northern Fulmar ­ Mostly we saw Northern Fulmar in 1s, 2s, 3s, and 4s,
but we had several groups of 20+.
1 Great Shearwater ­ 1 Great Shearwater seemed late.
30 Northern Gannet
8 American Crow

We're seeing an increased number of Pine Siskins at our feeder and in the
woods around us. More Purple Finches are showing up as well. Perhaps this
is the beginning of the much anticipated (at least by me!!) northern finch
irruption in this locale.

That means more dinner options for the Sharp-shinned Hawk who visits the
feeders daily.

Three Fox Sparrows under the feeder this morning. That's new....

Red-throated Loons are in Flat Bay during high tide and good numbers of
Bonaparte's Gulls are still around working the same waters as the loons,
Common Eiders and Bufflehead when a food source is plentiful during high

We had fine birding from the kitchen window today in North Monmouth. A leucistic fox sparrow along with three other fox sparrows were foraging in the garden and under the feeder. We were surprised to see two red wing blackbirds here so late, and then really surprised to see two rusty blackbirds near by.

I paddled the Sebasticook River from Clinton to Benton Falls Dam today
looking for a missing canoe for a friend from Clinton.  I saw a few
eagles, lots of ducks (common types) and geese (on land, on water and
flying).  The surprise was seeing 3 great blue herons, one belted
kingfisher, and many hundreds of gulls around the dam in the air and
water.  There must be lots of alewives in the river, going over the
spillway and through the turbine making chopped fish.  I did not look
for eagles below the dam, but I am sure there are many downstream
enjoying the feast.  We did not find the canoe.  It was a great paddle
with some good class 3 white water in a few places.  The river is up. 
The water was cold and the winds were light.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Schoodic Point SeaWatch
This morning’s 3 hour stint from 6-9 AM produced
a fairly steady stream of Red-throated Loon (71) and
Long-tailed Duck (110). Among the 29 species seen
were 24 Snow Bunting. Here’s a link to eBird:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49773313

Our cumulative waterbird season total is approaching 102,000 !
To provide a bit of perspective that amounts to
~326 birds per hour of observation.

By comparison the Cadillac Mountain hawk watch = 7.8 hawks per hour.

Where would you rather spend your time? (Attempt at levity).

Both counts are projects of the Schoodic Institute Bird Ecology Program.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Gilsland Farm Bird Walk, 11/8
Hello Maine-birds:

It was a beautiful morning at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth during our weekly bird walk with temps starting in the low 40s but raising to nearly 50ºF. Irruptive finch numbers have been building over the past couple months with 25+ Purple Finches now around the meadows, especially favoring the abundant ash samaras (vocab word of the week). Pine Siskins have also been numerous and frequenting the Discovery Room feeders lately. Another seasonal shift: American Tree Sparrows have also moved in over the past week while winter ducks, especially Bufflehead, are increasing.

Other birds of note included an Orange-crowned Warbler and a Common Yellowthroat, both in the swale that extends into the North Meadow. A single Rusty Blackbird was also briefly seen in the North Meadow but the highest entertainment value came from a group of 10 or so very vocal Eastern Bluebirds foraging and chasing each other around the West Meadow.

A complete list from the walk is available here: https://ebird.org/me/view/checklist/S49755812

Good birding,

Greetings, birding friends! Mega-psyched to report that Tashi and I spotted our first redpoll flock of the season here in the western mountains. A cheery little band of about 60 birds checking out a stand of gray birch just up the road from my house. It was barely light and I had no binos so couldn’t sort through them for Hoarys or siskins. Can’t wait til those little cheepers discover my thistle-seed feeder... :-D

You are partly right, Delia. It certainly is noteworthy however this has been going on for a very long time. I have observed this nightly migration of crows into Portland (and other large towns in Maine) for decades. It begins in the Fall and continues nightly throughout the winter. They depart at first light heading back to their country digs. One evening years ago I stopped at the edge of Deering Oaks at dusk and rough counted 3,000 crows in two large adjacent trees.

Subject: Re: [Maine-birds] American crows: Westbrook
You are partly right, Delia. It certainly is noteworthy however this has been going on for a very long time. I have observed this nightly migration of crows into Portland (and other large towns in Maine) for decades. It begins in the Fall and continues nightly throughout the winter. They depart at first light heading back to their country digs. One evening years ago I stopped at the edge of Deering Oaks at dusk and rough counted 3,000 crows in two large adjacent trees. The only reason I have ever heard is safety. I have no idea if this is wholly or partly true or if it is simply a social event. I’m glad you mentioned it. I would welcome hearing what others have seen and heard about this behavior. It has always amused me.

Lead poisoning (from fragments in game carcasses)? I'm not sure what else it could be. If it does pass away in your yard, you can contact local universities and maybe they can do an autopsy for you.

A good day for a birding jaunt to the Schoodic Peninsula.

We observed 4 Greater Yellowlegs in the Frazier Point area.

Other nice sightings included a soaring Sharp-shinned Hawk above Schoodic
Head, 3 Harlequin Ducks and a female Northern Harrier near Schoodic Island.

Remnants of that incredible weeks-long autumn sparrow invasion were still
around at Blueberry Hill with White-crowned and White-throated hanging
around with Yellow-rumped Warblers and a single Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

Hi all - Highlights of the day today include the following:

*Yellow-rumped Warblers* at home (SWHbr) and at Cable Crossing Road in
Manset. 7 of them actively feeding at the latter location, where fermenting
seaweed and swarms of tiny insects seem like a perfect set up for lingering
migrants.
*Turkey Vulture* overhead in SWH.
*Semipalmated Plovers* (7) at Cable Crossing Road
*Merlin*, *Laughing Gull* (2), *Chipping Sparrow* (2) and *Brown Creeper*
at Seawall and Seawall Campground
*Evening Grosbeak* (1 f.) at my home feeder, briefly. First located by its
call. First of the year for me.

Indeed, first reported Oct 12 by Gordon Smith and last reported by GS Oct
23.
Pardon the oversight. One of the hazards of going for a year list. Once you
have something
early on, other sightings don't register the way they would otherwise.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Snow Goose Pennellville Rd Brunswick
An adult white morph snow goose was observed along Pennellville Road at
about 2pm,
associating with the flock of ~225 Canada Geese. When I left the area it
was working its way toward the large white farmhouse on the southeast side
along with 4 CANG who had separated from the main flock.

Just now returning after a long jaunt through that neck of the woods and do
not see any mention of it on eBird yet. I'll be posting a report soon with
some images. Seems no matter the season or conditions, Maine never
disappoints!

Happy avianautics!

Cross-posting this to the Maine listserve, especially for those who made the trip to the NH coast last year to see the Common Shelduck.  The Shelduck was accepted by the NH Rare Bird Committee, adding the species to the NH statelist.  So if you saw the bird and follow the ABA listing rules - you can add it to your life list and NH state list.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Rare Bird Committee Votes to Add Common Shelduck (and 4 Others) to NH Statelist

Yesterday the NH Rare Bird Committee (NHRBC) voted on records of review species covering the four 2017 seasons - Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, and Winter 2017/2018.  Highlights were the addition of 5 species to the NH statelist -
   Common Shelduck - 8/13 - 9/11/17, Rye
   Yellow-nosed Albatross - 7/4/17, Seavey and Star Islands (previously on the NH hypothetical list)
   Brown Booby -   6/10-20/17, Cobbetts Pond, Windham
   Western Wood-Pewee -10/1/17, Star Island
   MacGillivray's Warbler - 9/4-11/17, Odiorne Point State Park (previously on the NH hypothetical list)
That brings the NH statelist to 418 after the addition of an amazing 10 species over just the last 2 years.
The complete report of the NHRBC's 2017 votes will be published in a future edition of New Hampshire Bird Records.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Additional Highlights This Week and Goose Fields Update, 10/27-11/2
Hi all,
My other observations of note over the past seven days included:

- 1 continuing adult GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE, Thornhurst Farm, North Yarmouth, 10/26 (with Saturday Morning Birdwalk group). Continues through week's end, splitting time between Thornhust Farm and the fields along Greely Rd in Cumberland. Week's high count of Canada Geese in the Greater Yarmotuh Goose Fields was 866 on 11/1 (season to date high count). Horned Larks and American Pipits continue to be common in the fields, with a few Pectoral Sandpipers here and there this week.
- 1 Blue-headed Vireo, 2 Common Yellowthroats, lots of Pine Siskins, etc, Bailey Island, Harpswell, 10/30 (with Jeannette).
- 5 EVENING GROSBEAKS, feeders here at the store, 11/1.
- 22 Black-bellies Plovers, 1 Rusty Blackbird, etc, Wolfe's Neck Center, Freeport, 11/2.
- nice influx of Pine Siskins into the area this week.

-Derek

All three Cattle Egrets continue as of 7:55 am on the south side of the
road. They were not present at ~6:40am, so were apparently roosting
somewhere at that time. (When I didn't see them on first visit I checked
all the other likely spots in the area and it's safe to say there are no
other CAEGs around.)

They'll likely hunker down to wait out the high winds and rain coming our
way.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Dyer Pt, Cape Eliz late afternoon
Hi all -- The perennial Harlequins are on station at Dyer Point. In today's
strong onshore winds, high tide, and significant chop, I was only able to
pick out 5 of 'em. Also 4 N. Gannets and 3 Ww Scoters flew by. Around the
white-washed brick building there were 2 White-crowned Sparrows, 2 Song
Sparrows and a few juncos.

At Pond Cove (also in Cape Eliz) I found an offshore R-t Loon in my scope
while a Carolina Wren trilled behind me.

Nice way to end October; and more nutritious than Snickers bars for
Halloween.

Cheers,

I just had a not great view of a raptor soaring high over area where GRBH was seen this am. Long all dark wings and darkish tail. Looked like lots of whitish in chest but rest of body mottled dark. There was also some white in rump area but too high to tell where. Can’t rule out other raptors. Does anyone have a photo of the bird soaring? Does my description rule it out?

Just now seeing this on the rare bird reports, so tomorrow morning will be
my first attempt at it here. If successful, my second beholding...

I have a beard too, everybody, and binoculars, but don't confuse me for a

Just got a text from Logan Kahle who found a first-cycle COMMON GULL (L. c. canus) around 1:00PM at Etherington Pond in Biddeford, across from Fortunes Rocks Beach. The bird was last seen flying south and hasn’t been relocated but Logan is still looking and I’m sure more eyes on the scene would help.

I stopped on Knox Ridge this morning and counted 17 Bald Eagles at the composting facility, 3 juveniles the rest adults, most I have seen there since last winter. I then observed a family of crows at Hilltop raiding the dumpster, one acting as lookout while the other 2 disappeared into its depths.


The feeders are busy this afternoon in driving snow mix;


3 bluejays discovered there are peanuts and have been selecting them out to cache.

2 Hairy woodpeckers

1 downy woodpecker

4 Titmice

10 + chickadees

RB nuthatches

WB nuthatches


1 Yellow-rumped warbler sneaking under the woodpeckers to eat suet


12+ Juncos in the barnyard and lawn below eating weed seeds presumably, they have not hit the feeders yet

6 + mixed Song + Whitethroated sparrows with the juncos


1 Raven checking for discarded eggs


1 obnoxious red squirrel that won't get off the big feeder.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Wow..Wow...Wow - Island Fallout
On this gorgeous day, we were on Swans Island (off Bass Hbr - MDI) and the
minute we disembarked the ferry, began our extraordinary immersion in
migrants. They were everywhere in HUGE numbers. As thick as Black Flies in
June.

Birds sprayed off the road side almost *continuously*, like rainwater from
our tires, as we drove island roads. Sparrows were predominant with Juncos,
Song, White-throated, White-crowned and Chipping most obvious.

But, thrushes were there in astonishing numbers, as well, as were
Yellow-rumped Warblers. The second most common warbler were Palm's but
there were many others that I'd like to have spent time going after, had we
had the time to do so.

What a treat!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Red- breasted and sparrows finally.
Nice to see a Red-breasted Nuthatch here in Sanford too. Unusual in my yard. Now that I've put a feeder out there are finally 4 White-throated Sparrows and a few juncos too. It is that time of year anyway, when birds are just mo ing. The sparrows which I usually have seen on the ground doing their little dance to get to seed, were doing their best to get seed from the feeder.

On the Dutton Hill barren yesterday, I watched an immature Northern Shrike capture, kill (by banging it against a branch) and stash a Golden-crowned Kinglet. A sobering display. Those masked bandits seem well dressed for the part. Also, a couple Lincoln's Sparrows in amongst their family group.

On the Mayall Road fields there were at least three clear Cackling Geese among the ~800 or so Canadas. Also, 2 Sandhill Cranes, ~ 20 American Pipits, ~35 Horned Larks, and a Lapland Longspur.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: New England Cottontail
Guess this will finish up this non-bird discussion but I received a reply
from Cory Stearns at the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. He
shared this info:

This rabbit was released as part of Maine’s translocation program. He was
born at Queen’s Zoo in New York this summer, and was released at Two Lights
SP on 9/21/18. Being born in captivity he is probably just used to having
people around, so he didn’t perceive you as a threat until you were very
close to him.

So it's a New England Cottontail, not an Eastern, and there's an article
about their recent southern Maine re-introduction program:
https://www.pressherald.com/2018/10/07/the-bunny-hope/

(thanks to Scott Richardson for the link)

I hope it can somehow avoid the Gray Foxes which are crazy prolific around
here. Been seeing families of Grays all season, and I snapped some pics
of a very well-fed looking bunch dining on fermented crab apples on
someone's lawn in broad daylight a short time ago.

overwhelming in their numbers all along the way. Sometimes every few
hundred yards a flock of them.
It was an astonishing experience for us.We didn't have opportunity to
stop in the morning (having a scheduled appt.) but on the way back we
stopped several times (the road is narrow with many glacial moraine "dips"
so it is difficult to park without causing a dangerous situation for the
infrequent traffic which doesn't usually include parked birders. Roque
Bluffs State Park had shadows, but in the sunny spots the birds were there
along Schoppee Rd.
On busy Rte 1 the traffic must have scattered the flocks because there
weren't many to be seen.
I thought I would see many reports of this today. Did no one else have
these sparrows in abundance?

Subject: [Maine-birds] 1 Snow Bunting in St. Albans
This morning, while duck hunting at St. Albans Wildlife Management Area, a
single Snow Bunting flew over the marsh, calling and circling for about 10
minutes. I had good looks with the binoculars and the flight calls were
correct for the species. Only one was spotted, though. Sadly, the
waterfowl flight this morning was very weak, with a few groups of Canada's,
along with 1 flock of black ducks and 1 flock of Ring-necked ducks.

Hi guys,

Aside from the usual suspects for this time of year (chickadee, nuthatch,
titmice), I've been seeing lots of tiny brown birds at my feeders. My
novice eyes immediately thought sparrow of some kind but I have no idea if
thats right, or which one. They're very, very small. Here's the best pic
I could take along with one of the same bird next to a chickadee for size
comparison. Hopefully someone will be able to help satisfy my curiosity.

Thanks much!

I had a very unexpected Dickcissel in downtown Portland this morning in the trees along the weedy overgrown edge of the parking lot next to Hub Furniture and across from Fore St. Restaurant, on Fore Street between Pearl St and Franklin St. No bins, but unmistakable vocalizations.

This is one of those spots with just enough vegetation and a few trees to support a flock of House Sparrows, which persist year round on a stream of tourist bread crumbs from nearby Standard Bakery.

Subject: [Maine-birds] Fox Sparrow - Riverton Trolley Park - Portland
First time visiting this patch for a while despite it being close to my house. There was a decent amount of activity in the weeds and brush that has grown up since they thinned out the woods. A Fox Sparrow that was with a group of White-throated Sparrows was the most unexpected find of the visit.

I also birded my neighborhood and turned up several large mixed groups of sparrows with high numbers of White-crowned Sparrows mixed in.

Happy fall birding,

Brendan

Subject: [Maine-birds] Birds at Mud Cove, Lily Bay Moosehead Lake
I was at Mud Cove, Lily Bay, Moosehead for the last 5 days and had a few
interesting sightings:

4 Canada Jays
6 White Throated Sparrows
lots of Juncos
6 loon - 2 winter plumage or juveniles
Found the remains of one Ruffed Grouse, and one live. The remains had what
looked like large bird droppings near it.
1 Ruby Crowned Kinglet
1 Northern waterthrush, bobbing tail
4 Horned larks - on exposed rocks and beach where the water has recently
dropped
4 Hooded Merganser (on small pond nearby)
8 flying Common Mergansers, 1 braving the 30 mph wind and waves out front
Thursday
1 Greater Yellowlegs (feeding in a small inlet on the road to the Lily Bay
Storehouse)
1 Ring Billed Gull that decided it liked the bread I put in the feeder, and
4-5 others

Submitted full list to ebird,

Great morning of birding with Matthew Stuart at Wolfes Neck in Freeport.
Highlights included 6 sparrow species, Yellow rumped, Palm and a Pine warbler and a great intersection of shorebirds and the first winter ducks.
Ducks included a single white winged scoter and a mixed flock of common mergansers and the first buffleheads of the year.
Shorebirds were 2 killdeer, 8-10 greater yellowlegs, a dozen dunlin and a 4 late semi palm plovers and one small sandpiper I believe was a sanderling. And the requisite juvenile bald eagle flyover.
Good times!

Subject: [Maine-birds] Historic Scoter Migration at Schoodic Point
Just before noon today Earl Johnson, the Migration Monitor Technician at Schoodic Institute,
texted to alert me, “Insane scoter day. 5K plus birds easily.” (He had been counting since daybreak).
With that message, I hustled from a meeting in Ellsworth back to join him at Schoodic Point by 1 PM.
By 3:30 PM the flight was pretty much over.
Our preliminary results: Black Scoter 5,886; Surf Scoter 878; White-winged Scoter 323; Scoter sp. 18,766

TOTAL SCOTER COUNT = 25,853 !

It was a blustery SW wind between 10-18 mph all day. The wind velocity may have had a lot to do with keeping
the birds relatively close to our location on Schoodic Point. Days with winds from the southwest have annually produced the most days with flight totals exceeding 1000. This is a mega day for us!

Hi all-

A Dickcissel and an Orange-crowned Warbler were highlights of a
working-lunch (I swear!) walk around Gilsland Farm this afternoon. The
Dickcissel was feeding with White-crowned and other sparrows at the Big Sit
site at the water edge in the North Meadow.

The Orange-crowned Warbler was in a loose mixed flock that also included
yellow Palm Warblers flitting around at the edge of the edge of the peony
beds and the gardens between the main parking lot and the buildings.

Good birding!
