Subject: Carpool to Rothrock State Forest field trip
Good morning!

I'm a Penn State undergrad student looking to join the club after having a great time on the recent bird-watching walks at the Arboretum! I saw on the website that there is a field trip this Sunday to Dry Hollow Tract at Rothrock State Forest that sounds great, but since I don't have a car, I would be unable to get there on my own. Is there anyone driving from near the University Park campus who would be willing to carpool to the event? I'd be happy to pay for at least half of the gas to get there, and I'm fully vaccinated against covid and would wear a KN95 mask inside the car.

If that works out, do I have to pay membership dues before the field trip? If so, I could get a check in the mail tomorrow or bring it to the field trip, just let me know.

Thanks so much!
Katie

*Walk at Rhoneymeade*

*Centre Hall*



Surrounded by a mosaic of hedgerows, successional woodlands and
forest, Rhoneymeade farm is 150 acres, certified organic (primarily hay),
with a 6-acre arboretum at its center. We will take about 2 hours of gentle
hiking. Be prepared for a bit of mud if it is wet, but nothing
extreme. Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden is 9 miles east of
State College, midway between Linden Hall and Centre Hall. Follow Rt 45 E
out of Boalsburg for 4.5 miles past the junction with 322, then turn left
on Rimmey Rd. Climb the hill ~0.3 mi until the road forces a sharp left,
and then just around the corner you'll see the parking area is on the
left. This field trip is open to members and non-members.



177 Rimmey Road, Centre Hall, PA 16828.

Trip Leader: Joe Gyekis



*Sunday, November 13, 2022 8:00- 11:00 am*
*Winter Birds at Bald Eagle State Park*

We will be checking various locations within the main park for winter birds
such as sparrows, hawks and waterfowl. Some of the land birds we would
like to find would include Snow Buntings, American Pipit, perhaps a
Northern Harrier and Northern Shrike. The global climate is changing and
warmer weather tends to linger longer at Bald Eagle SP, so it will be
'anything goes' for this year's outing. We will meet at the Swimming
Beach, then drive to various locations around the park. We will probably do
some walking to the Skater's Pond and/or to the Hunter's Run Cove launch so
sturdy boots are recommended. Come prepared for the weather. All are
welcome. Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.
Photographers welcome.

Subject: Honduran coffee available Wednesday
Good evening,

Mike and I will be at the club meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 28, and we’ll bring shade-grown organic Honduran coffee to sell. It’s a medium roast and we’ll bring whole bean and ground, as well as some bags of Colombian decaf.
It’s the same coffee we’ve sold before, but the label has changed. Also, like everything else, the cost has increased since we last met in person.
Small bags (12 oz.) are $14.
Large bags (2-lbs.) are $28.

We also have Jacks Mountain Hawk Watch patches for sale - in case Jen runs out. The patches are really nice and certainly support an important hawk watch in our area. Just $5!!!

We saw the first of the season yellow-bellied sapsucker last week and today the first white-throated sparrow showed up. Fall is here in Bedford County!!

See you tomorrow,
Laura and Mike Jackson

Thanks Doug for mentioning membership dues. Only $15 for an individual membership, $25 for a family membership (if, like me, you have persuaded your spouse or other family members to share your interest in birds), or a supporting membership for $40.
You may also choose to specify a donation to help us support the Tussey Mt. Hawkwatch. We have already had several membership renewals and at least one new member (Welcome to the flock!).
See you tomorrow,

I’ll have membership forms available if you would like to bring a check or cash for basic membership of $15.

We will have a few tables set up for treats and although I’m not known for my baking skills, I do know that a few of our members have considerable talent as bakers (along with being talented birders). So if you are so motivated, I’ll pack compostable plates and napkins and save a place on our table for your baked goods.

Susan Smith and I have a few Bird Club decals and window clings left from our original purchase and we will bring to share. If you have natural history books / field guides that you would like to share, I’ll happily take them for the Alice Fuller bookshelf of gentle used books. Proceeds go towards the Tussey Mountain Hawk Watch.

I’ll be at Millbrook by 6:30 pm tomorrow if you would like to help with chair set or just want to walk the trail and do some late day birding. Looking forward to the meeting.

All the best,
Doug

Happy Autumn to all,

Like Joe, I’m looking forward to Sadie and Melissa’s program and to seeing many of you in person! The start of our regular meetings / programs coincides with the new membership<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.scbirdcl.org%2Fjoinbirdclub.html&data=05%7C01%<7CSCBIRDCL...>%7C7718d181f3244986a3cf08daa0c9f389%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C637999086486176432%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=zFovO%2BFE%2FoVhexbuptCSB6bKm%2BnXCVic91CIfoTpYRQ%3D&reserved=0> year, and this meeting will be a good opportunity to join or renew. I’ll have membership forms available if you would like to bring a check or cash for basic membership of $15.

We will have a few tables set up for treats and although I’m not known for my baking skills, I do know that a few of our members have considerable talent as bakers (along with being talented birders). So if you are so motivated, I’ll pack compostable plates and napkins and save a place on our table for your baked goods.

Susan Smith and I have a few Bird Club decals and window clings left from our original purchase and we will bring to share. If you have natural history books / field guides that you would like to share, I’ll happily take them for the Alice Fuller bookshelf of gentle used books. Proceeds go towards the Tussey Mountain Hawk Watch.

I’ll be at Millbrook by 6:30 pm tomorrow if you would like to help with chair set or just want to walk the trail and do some late day birding. Looking forward to the meeting.

All the best,
Doug

Hi All,

Reminder about tomorrow's meeting:

* No Zoom link required, but you have to actually travel in person to Millbrook Marsh Nature Center by 7 pm to enjoy the presentation
*
Sadie Sharma of the Forest Benefits and Values Lab at Penn State will present "Public Attitudes towards Birds and Private Forest Land Conservation". Sadie is a graduate student in Forest Resources, specializing in forest resources economics and policy, private forest landowners willingness to implement conservation measures, social and economic benefits of ecosystems, and ecosystem based adaptation in changing environment. In our state where half the forest is privately owned, these are super important topics for birds today and into the future.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in this context for the first time since February 2020 (over 30 months ago)!

Joe

Total observation time: 7 hours

Official Counter: Cindy Bickel

Observers: Diane Stewart, Jen Lee

Visitors:
George Ferguson stopped by for over an hour in the A.M. followed by Mike
Bumgardner, with camera in tow, in the P.M. This was Mike's first time to
visit the Hawk Watch.


Weather:
A beautiful weather day on the mountain. A nice breeze held up all day
starting out from the SW and ending up WSW. Light jackets needed. Cumulus
cloud cover was ever changing throughout the day, making it easier to spot
birds as they approached the watch. Anticipated rain showers did not
materialize.

Raptor Observations:
Six different species observed today. However, we were chasing our 7,000th
Broad-winged Hawk for the year & fell just a few short. Observed a Cooper's
Hawk letting a Turkey Vulture know who owned the sky over Big Valley. The
flight path today was out over either valley rather than directly overhead.
All 3 Bald Eagles seen today were immatures.

Non-raptor Observations:
Continuing to see and kill Spotted Lantern Flies but the swarming ants did
not show up today. Appreciated the fly swatter left by Diane at the watch.
Other birds observed or heard today: Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Red-Headed
Woodpecker,
Downy Woodpecker, Carolina Wren, Gold Finch, Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse,
Yellow Rump Warbler, Towee, Ravens, Black Vultures, Turkey Vultures, Blue
Jays, Flickers. (Thanks Jen!)

Predictions:
Hoping to get past the 7000 mark for Broad-wings tomorrow!

Weather:
Storms coming from the west. Started with cloudy skies. Rain moved through.
Skies remained cloudy with some breaks of sun. Another batch of rain moved
through for about 30 minutes. Again, cloudy skies followed with some breaks
of sun. Mild temps and low winds.

Raptor Observations:
Very little flight today. A few broad wings went through as individuals.
The Kestrels were moving quickly today. The local coop made an appearance
but was not counted.

Non-raptor Observations:
No birds in flight at all until after the heavy rain. No tv or bv. No small
birds. Nothing! However, the local raven known as, Nemo, did make an
appearance on the tower. There was no flight at all after 2:30. Another
storm was to come through within the hour (based on radar) so maybe the
birds were taking shelter from it. Birds that were observed today included
goldfinch, female indigo bunting (observed by Scott Singer), local raven,
blue jays, and swifts.

Subject: Fwd: eBird Report - Moshannon SF--Smays Run Trail, Sep 25, 2022
This morning's fieldtrip to Smays Run Trail was... surprising! The four of
us had to wait for about 5 minutes until torrential downpour finished but
the the rain cleared up and we were able to the trail. We went for half a
mile and the only birds we saw were blue jays (and heard a Canada Goose and
an Eastern Towhee). Then Peggy spotted a bird skullking through the low
branches of some pine trees. Very drab but with a bold eye ring - it was a
Connecticut Warbler! It moved through the branches, hopped down to the
ground, and disappeared. At about that time the sky darkened so we headed
back up the trail as the rain started up again, fortunatey for a short
while. We as we made back to the trail head, we finally intersected with a
lovely group of warblers of friends, including Ruby-Crowned Kinglets and a
Philadelphia Vireo.

Hi everyone,

There is a pretty good chance that it will rain during this morning's field
trip to Smays Run Trail. Possibly during the whole thing. I am still going
to show up anyway as some folks may want to brave the trail (maybe it will
just drizzle for a while?). And I'm always up for birding!

Subject: Sparrows @ Haugh Family Preserve
For all those that enjoy shifting through sparrow flocks and working on
their sparrow identification, the community garden at Haugh Family Preserve
has been very active with birds this past week.

With the nearby cornfields and mixed herbaceous plant life, goldfinches,
Indigo Buntings, and sparrows have been enjoying the fall seed production
along with the dense cover for safe foraging (a big thank you to all those
that garden there).

On occasion, warblers such as nashville, tennessee, and palm can be found
as well. If you go, walk the garden fence border as the birds perch nicely
on the fences and garden stakes, giving ample time for pictures and careful
observations. Or gently and slowly walk the garden paths for even closer
looks.

The wooden area around the pond is also producing berry food opportunities.
Look for bird activity in the bright red virginia creeper vines.

Today's list of birds are below.

Enjoy,
Jon

The field trip to Smays Run Trail is *SUNDAY *not tomorrow (as Susan's

dates confused. Should be a great day on Sunday. Lots of birds will be in

Subject: Re: Upcoming Field Trip Sunday, Sept. 25; Oct.02 trip start time is changed
Hi everyone,

I am looking forward to tomorrow's field trip to Smays Run Trail in Black
Moshannon. It will be a cold start but there is also a good forecast for
migration tonight (check out Bird Cast: https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fbirdcast.info%2F&amp;data=05%7C01%<7CSCBIRDCL...>%7Cdff7519eefc141c77eee08da9d7dbc05%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C637995460600697239%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&amp;sdata=vr%2F%2ByQ28K%2Bt1kWvZHAmTvPYn2bCcY1Jfldjf7PK590o%3D&amp;reserved=0 ) which
hopefully means some good birds along the trail. And even if you don't join
us at Smays Run, tomorrow will be a good day to be out birding.

There are restrooms in Black Moshannon but they are about another 5-6
minutes drive down Beaver Road into Black Moshannon. So if you plan on
stopping there first, leave a little earlier. Or if you miss us, just head
down the trail as there is just one direction to go on the trail, from the
parking lot. The trail is wide enough to easily accomodate a group without
us having to spread out too far. There is a slope so we'll be walking down
a gradual to moderate incline on the first part of the walk and then we'll
walk back up the way we came.

Hello All,

Thanks to Wayne’s phone call, I got to see these American Avocets at Bald
Eagle SP. Thanks again Wayne for the ‘heads up’!
They were still there when I left the beach around 3 pm. I hope they are
staying through the rainy weather we are having tonight.

Weather:
Winds out of the SSW at 4-7 but decrease to 1-3 at times. Cloud consisting
of wispy cirrus clouds providing a great back drop for picking out migrates

Raptor Observations:
AMKE (female)

NOHA (male)

Mostly hugging the ridge to the south but occasionally ridgetop. Low flight
and with very little thermal activity.

Non-raptor Observations:
Chimney Swift(38) Ruby-throated Hummingbird(1) Red-breasted Nuthatch(1)
Yellow-rumped Warbler(1) Indigo Bunting(1)

Monarch(72)

Spotted Lanternfly (596) Clicker used throughout the day to count but
certainly many more out there as this was the first major presence this
fall. Many were moving SW along ridge and landing at the count site. Many
were killed with a fly swatter

*Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022 (4:00-4:45 PM)*
*Shaver's Creek*

Join Doug Wentzel for a lesson on how to lead a bird walk. We will meet in
front of the Nature Center. Bird club field trip leaders and future field
trip leaders welcome!


*Saturday, October 22, 2022 (8:00-10:00 AM)*

*Walk at Rhoneymeade*

*Centre Hall*



Surrounded by a mosaic of hedgerows, successional woodlands and
forest, Rhoneymeade farm is 150 acres, certified organic (primarily hay),
with a 6-acre arboretum at its center. We will take about 2 hours of gentle
hiking. Be prepared for a bit of mud if it is wet, but nothing
extreme. Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden is 9 miles east of
State College, midway between Linden Hall and Centre Hall. Follow Rt 45 E
out of Boalsburg for 4.5 miles past the junction with 322, then turn left
on Rimmey Rd. Climb the hill ~0.3 mi until the road forces a sharp left,
and then just around the corner you'll see the parking area is on the
left. This field trip is open to members and non-members.



177 Rimmey Road, Centre Hall, PA 16828.

Trip Leader: Joe Gyekis



*Sunday, November 13, 2022 8:00- 11:00 am*
*Winter Birds at Bald Eagle State Park*

We will be checking various locations within the main park for winter birds
such as sparrows, hawks and waterfowl. Some of the land birds we would
like to find would include Snow Buntings, American Pipit, perhaps a
Northern Harrier and Northern Shrike. The global climate is changing and
warmer weather tends to linger longer at Bald Eagle SP, so it will be
'anything goes' for this year's outing. We will meet at the Swimming
Beach, then drive to various locations around the park. We will probably do
some walking to the Skater's Pond and/or to the Hunter's Run Cove launch so
sturdy boots are recommended. Come prepared for the weather. All are
welcome. Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.
Photographers welcome.

Weather:
Calm winds from the WNW all day. Mostly cloudless skies, but consistent
haze in both valleys (presumably from West coast wildfires) restricted
visibility to a degree.

Raptor Observations:
Largest Broad-wing kettles were seen at a distance towards Tussey Mountain
and Jacks Mountain, but then some of the birds streaming off the top would
cross to Stone and re-kettle above us.

Locals: TUVU (6+), BLVU (5), RTHA (1), RSHA (1)

Non-raptor Observations:
A porcupine was seen in the morning below the platform, ducking into the
forest off of the Standing Stone Trail.

Monarchs and dragonflies were consistent and plentiful throughout the day.

Non-raptor bird highlights included 2 Magnolia Warblers, 2 Black-throated
Green Warblers, a couple Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a Red-breasted Nuthatch,
multiple hummingbird buzz-bys, the resident Ravens, and frequent fly-bys by
a large flock of Cedar Waxwings.

Weather:
Very light wind from NNW, very thin wispy clouds in the morning, becoming clear skies in the afternoon. Sky somewhat silver colored from western fires.

Raptor Observations:
Very good day with over 1500 broadwings, one kestrel not counted as migrating late in the day. 877 broadwings count from 11 to 12 with most in the first 20 minutes. Bald Eagles Immatures: 9:10 10:10 12:55 1:20 1:59 Adults 11:25 12:57 2:02 2:45

Non-raptor Observations:
Monarchs migrating all day, counted 852. I’m sure 100’s were missed due to the number of hawk migrating. Some smaller birds around but not noted because of the large number of raptors migrating.

Subject: Broad-Winged Hawk peak migration approaching
Broad-winged Hawks are moving our way! The peak of their migration is close.
Fri - Sat - Sun could be the peak numbers in central PA. (

*** Birds will be birds *** No guarantees!

Near Belleville there is a unique situation with 2 hawk watch sites a few miles apart. Stone Mt, on the NW ridge, is usually better on NW winds. Jack's Mt, on the SE ridge, is usually better on SE winds.

When there are lots of hawks moving, the wind direction might not matter (kinda like a traffic jam) every route will be busy!!

Forecast:
Friday - WSW light winds
Saturday - SSE 5-8 mph
Sunday - WSW 5-8 mph

Stone Mt watch platform is reached via a ~20 min hike along the ridgetop established path over several rock outcroppings. Park at top of Allensville Rd.
Stone had 270 raptors today.

Jack's is a gravel raised viewing area at an overlook along Wills Rd. Park and walk 20 feet. Bring a chair! Jack's had 135 today.

Note: Jack's is celebrating 30 yrs of hawk counting. We have a cool commemorative patch featuring a Red-Shouldered Hawk image from a photo by Craig, one of our counters, that was taken at Jacks. $5 fund raiser toward site maintenance.

Additional info, maps, can be found on the hawkcount.org website.

Subject: Sanderling - Pa Furnace Rd (Huntingdon Co.)
Hello all,

This evening I observed a lone Sanderling mixed in with a group of 55
Killdeer on Pa Furnace Rd. Once you reach the crest of the hill and past
the small section of standing water on the left, scan through the area in
which the cover crop is growing.

This is the second fall in a row that one has shown up at this location.

Jon

Subject: Great Horned Owl
Our Great Horned Owl is hooting at the very top of the spruce in our backyard right now. This is the earliest in the year and the evening we have ever seen and heard it in our yard. Usually it is late at night in the winter. A great gift this evening.

Subject: Bay-breasted Warblers in the fall
With an ongoing spruce budworm infestation in eastern Canada, it has been
really fun in recent years to encounter significant numbers of the spruce
budworm warblers: Tennessee, Bay-breasted, and Cape May. I see way more
Bay-breasteds in the fall than in the spring.

Bay-breasted Warblers often tend to cluster in the fall. Yesterday, I
counted 11 on my 11-mile walk north of Black Moshannon SP, often in groups
of 2-3. In 2017, I counted 9 there. Thus, many are in the big woods. Last
fall, I also saw a group of 20-30 in a spruce plantation at Eagle Field
(not in the big woods, but in favorite trees). They seem to like being
present with their own kind. In comparison to many warblers, their foraging
behavior is slower and more deliberate, akin to a vireo's.

Historically, we haven't seen many Bay-breasted Warblers at the Stone Mt
hawk watch. There, Tennessees and Cape Mays are more common.
Bay-breasteds (and Cape Mays as well) seem to aggregate by an innate
habitat selection.

Subject: Screech owl
Heard a screech owl calling with the whinnying sound last evening around 8 pm. Towards the end it made a kind of bubbling noise. It had to compete with the State High Band practice!
We used to hear them regularly in the late 90’s. I even have a video of 2 owlets learning to fly from that time.

Subject: bird club member with investment experience & willing to help choose club investment options?
About 50 years ago, Audubon sponsored traveling nature shows and the State
College bird club hosted several such shows in local theaters. The
generated revenue was originally slated for purchasing a bird sanctuary.
Decades later, the bird club board decided that it didn't make sense for us
to purchase and operate such a sanctuary. For a long time, this money has
sat in a bank account and the club has instead periodically donated to
Clearwater Conservancy land purchases.

Now, the board is considering investing that money to generate regular
income that the club would then donate to worthy causes that would be
consistent with the original goal. Examples could include donations for
land purchases, as we previously did, or a connectivity to bird migration
project. The donation causes will be decided later, though we have that
guiding principle in mind.

If you are a bird club member with investment experience and would be
willing to help us choose what to invest in, please let me know. We want to
do something relatively simple, for example, investing in a mutual fund.

Thank you.

Subject: Re: Chimney swift roost in Port Matilda
Chimney Swifts also gather in Millheim,PA near the firehall (left at the
light, parking lot along the road). The chimney is in an old schoolhouse
next door. Probably at least 200 - they are so hard to count. I thought at
first they had left town, but at one minute to 7 the first swift came into
sight. They slowly gathered more and more, swirling around the chimney,
then far out. Just at 8 pm they descended. A beautiful sight!

And just before 8pm, two bats came out and swirled around the same area,
continuing after the swifts went to bed!

Check it out if you are in the area!

best,
Loanne

Went to the Port Matilda Hotel for dinner tonight and as we exited at dusk, I noticed a swift colony flying in to roost in their chimney.

Incidentally, the owners are aware, been there for years and support the roost in the unused chimney.
