Subject: [Arlington Birds] Long-tailed Duck pictures (Horn Pond)
I put a couple pictures on my Flickr. I was lucky that the bird passed quite close to me when I first saw it. Marge Rimes came by just a few minutes later, but, rather frustratingly, we could not refind it. Viewing was not ideal with high winds, glare, and whitecaps. I think it is likely still on the main pond somewhere.

Folks,

The next walk at Bear Creek Sanctuary, Saugus, is scheduled for 9 am on Sunday, November 19. Details for attending the walk are below.

ON the walk on November 12, migrant passerines were extremely scarce, as has become noticeable to many folks birding eastern Massachusetts this fall. But Horned Larks, American Pipits and Snow Buntings, the grassland and open country birds, are finally beginning to show up. And meadowlarks put on a nice show.

Some Bear Creek and Rumney Marsh photos here:

Geoff Wilson, our chaperone and the landscaper for the property, publishes a newsletter that you may find interesting:
http://conta.cc/2hg5ae5

Here are the details for attending walks at this property:

Bear Creek is an upland sanctuary built on the Wheelabrator (formerly RESCO) landfill at the northern end of Rumney Marsh in Saugus and Revere. Access information is below. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to hike 3 – 4 miles. The property is mostly very open, so be prepared for sun, wind and weather.

This walk is free and open to the public, but also note that this property is accessible by invitation only and visitors need to be chaperoned at all times. Please allow roughly 4 hours for this field trip. The actual length of the trip depends on conditions and the birds present. It's usually difficult to break up the party if you need to be somewhere in the early afternoon. Come prepared to stay with the group.

Wheelabrator company has graciously stocked up on some extra pairs of binoculars, so if you or someone you know wants to learn about birds and birding, come on down. Please let me know you're coming so we can have a head count.

Bear Creek sanctuary access is via the Wheelabrator plant, 100 Salem Turnpike (Rte 107), Saugus. The rotary at the intersection of Rtes 60 and 107 is about 1½ miles southwest of the plant and about 1 mile east of Rte 1 exit on Rte 60. When traveling northeast on 107, if you go over the Ballard Street bridge (just after a set of lights) you’ve gone too far — turn back. Here is a link to google maps:
http://tinyurl.com/326v87d

When you arrive, drive through the plant gates, park in the parking lot immediately and wait for the group. Please do not drive farther into the property without an escort.

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Slightly-off-topic: Harvard bird collection researcher seeks roommate
Hi all,

I hope it's okay to ask here - my friend Kate who works at the bird collection at the Harvard Museum of Natural History is seeking a roommate, and I thought it would be of interest to Arlington birders. If you are interested or know someone who is, please e-mail Kate directly at <coracina787...><mailto:<coracina787...>

***

I am looking for a new roommate. The apartment is the first floor of a house on Albermarle Street in Arlington. It’s a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the Stop and Shop and the Whole Foods and easy access to the 77 and 79 bus. The unfurnished room has two spacious closets and there is also some storage space in the basement. There is laundry in the basement and the kitchen has a dishwasher. There is plenty of off street parking and a back patio which is which is shared space. My current roommate has cats so they likely be allowed with permission from the landlady. The landlady lives upstairs, she’s super nice, very busy but always reachable by phone. The place would be available January 1, 2018. The rent is $1025 plus utilities (WiFi, elec. and gas). If you know anyone who is looking for a place, please pass on the info. and email: <coracina787...><mailto:<coracina787...>

Subject: [Arlington Birds] HAMMOND’S FLYCATCHER, Hanscom
I found a Hammond’s Flycatcher this morning on the Massport Trails at
Hanscom (Concord/Bedford line). From the gate off Rt. 62 (about
opposite Wheeler Dr), follow the trail down past the large grassy
field. A barely paved trail heads off to the right just after there,
the bird was in a small clearing on the left just before the trail
bends right. About an hour after I found it, Simon Perkins watched it
fly out of the clearing into the big field below. We followed it as it
moved along the trees in the middle of the field but then lost it.

See https://flic.kr/p/ZjPrLW for a map of where it was in relation to
the gate off Rt. 62. Note that there’s only room for at most 3-4 cars
at the pulloff at the gate, but there’s a parking lot about 1/4 mile
down the road with a bit more room.

Given the way it left a really good protected, sunny spot and moved
southwest along the field, I suspect it may have kept going. Hopefully
I’ll be proved wrong, but as of at least 12:30, I’m not aware of any
further sightings.

Lots of photos in my ebird report:

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Re: Cormorants
All

Cormorants dive to catch live aquatic animals for food. Fishes would seem to be the most common food in Spy Pond. They bring the prey to the surface then swallow them there. A careful eye or photograph can often identify the fish species. Sometimes they bring a large fish to the surface that one would think they could not swallow BUT they usually do.

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Next Bear Creek, Saugus, walk on Sunday November 12 at 9 am; report for Sunday Nov 5
Folks,

The next walk at Bear Creek Sanctuary, Saugus, is scheduled for 9 am on Sunday, November 12. Details for attending the walk are below.

For nearly 2-1/2 hours on Sunday (yesterday), 22 participants in the walk saw very little other than the occasional Canada Goose. To be sure, there were herons and waterfowl in the creeks as the tide got higher and higher. But there was a total dearth of song birds, especially migrants.

Then we flushed the first Short-eared Owl, followed by a Northern Harrier followed by two more SEOW. Most folks got to see the meadowlarks as well. Horned Larks and Snow Buntings, alas, were far more elusive -- only a few saw them or heard them flying about.

The water level over the marsh at high tide, around 12:30 pm, was as high as anyone had ever seen. It looked like the sanctuary was an island in a vast pond.

Here is the ebird checklist for the walk on Nov 5:

Geoff Wilson, our chaperone and the landscaper for the property, publishes a newsletter that you may find interesting:
http://conta.cc/2hg5ae5

Here are the details for attending walks at this property:

Bear Creek is an upland sanctuary built on the Wheelabrator (formerly RESCO) landfill at the northern end of Rumney Marsh in Saugus and Revere. Access information is below. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to hike 3 – 4 miles. The property is mostly very open, so be prepared for sun, wind and weather.

This walk is free and open to the public, but also note that this property is accessible by invitation only and visitors need to be chaperoned at all times. Please allow roughly 4 hours for this field trip. The actual length of the trip depends on conditions and the birds present. It's usually difficult to break up the party if you need to be somewhere in the early afternoon. Come prepared to stay with the group.

Wheelabrator company has graciously stocked up on some extra pairs of binoculars, so if you or someone you know wants to learn about birds and birding, come on down. Please let me know you're coming so we can have a head count.

Bear Creek sanctuary access is via the Wheelabrator plant, 100 Salem Turnpike (Rte 107), Saugus. The rotary at the intersection of Rtes 60 and 107 is about 1½ miles southwest of the plant and about 1 mile east of Rte 1 exit on Rte 60. When traveling northeast on 107, if you go over the Ballard Street bridge (just after a set of lights) you’ve gone too far — turn back. Here is a link to google maps:
http://tinyurl.com/326v87d

When you arrive, drive through the plant gates, park in the parking lot immediately and wait for the group. Please do not drive farther into the property without an escort.

Built to Peck: How Woodpeckers Avoid Brain Injury

Lorna Gibson
Department of Materials Science and Engineering, MIT

Woodpeckers peck to find insects to eat, to attract a mate (through
drumming) and to build cavity nests. They have to hit the tree hard enough
to drill into it. Why don’t they get brain injury? We’ll view the video,
Built to Peck, which looks into woodpecker pecking behavior and explains
how woodpeckers avoid brain injury.


If anyone would like to bring a baked item, bought item or drink that would
be fantastic! Please email Carol Thrope at <clt51...> so we can
coordinate our contributions.


Hope to see you there!!!

More than 20 Menotomy birders showed up for the annual Fox Sparrow walk at Lexington’s Dunback Meadow, but the Fox Sparrows didn’t, for the first time in several years. However, we were treated to nice looks at a NORTHERN HARRIER, a Cooper’s Hawk, and a few Red-tailed Hawks. We also saw a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, several Yellow-rumped Warblers, and some Cedar Waxwings.

A large group continued over to the Waltham Street farm fields for sparrows: Song, White-throated, Savannah, and Junco.

Thanks to everyone for their patience and good nature on a cloudy, slow-ish birding day.

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Wild Birds Unlimited Event
I went to yesterday's Grand Opening event at the new Wild Birds Unlimited
store in Woburn to see the Wing Master presentation. I've seen a few
presentations of birds that have been rehabilitated over the years (Eyes on
Owls is probably the best known, run Marcia and Mark Wilson) but I had
never seen a Wing Master before.

Julie and Jim did a great job to a PACKED house. I saw many birds people
here would recognize, including 3 falcons (2 kestrels) and 5 owls (their
screech has wonderful ear tufts and they had a barn owl! Need I say
more?) They had entertaining banter with a mix of bird facts and fun
stories (her new Peregrine likes to hear her sing...) I would highly
recommend going to see their show if you get a chance.

Today from 2-3pm I will be teaching a Wildlife Photography Class at the
store as part of their Grand Opening. It will be similar to classes I've
done for Menotomy in the past. I'll cover camera basics, what makes
certain pictures better than others, and field technique. Obviously with
only an hour I won't go into great depth, but I'm happy to answer whatever
questions people have. I'd rather cover what people want to know than just
blindly go through my slides.

So if you've been unable to go to one of my classes in the past or just
want a refresher, please come to the event. I doubt I can draw in people
like the Wing Masters did, but hopefully we can get a good group there.

The store is at:
344A Cambridge Road
Woburn, MA 01801
Located in the Horn Pond Plaza near Whole Foods Market
https://woburn.wbu.com/

There is lots of parking, so that shouldn't be an issue. Note that you
can't ENTER the parking lot right next to the store - that is an exit
only. But you can enter at either end of the parking lot (by the Whole
Foods or behind the WBU store) and then get to the store.

I was walking my dog at Menotomy Rocks this morning without binoculars.
There was a large flock of seemingly large birds high overhead (100+
members) who engaged in a "murmuration" for a few minutes over the pond. I
hoped they would come down, but eventually they flew off in a couple of
rough vee formations. They had dark bodies with tails and necks much shorter
than their broad wings, which showed some white in the sun.

Any ideas what they might have been?

Thanks.

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Grand opening event
I thought I'd pass along some info for an even this weekend that you all
might be interested in.
The new Wild Birds Unlimited store in Woburn is having its "grand opening"
this weekend. Dawna, the owner, has come to the last two meetings and
nicely gave away some stuff at the last one.

On Saturday, from 2-3 is the Wing Masters event. If you've never seen a
Wing Masters event, it is great fun. They bring a variety of birds that
you'll get to see up close while learning a lot of interesting things about
them. It is run by Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks, both licensed raptor
rehabilitators based in Mass. They've been putting on events across New
England since 1994.

Built to Peck: How Woodpeckers Avoid Brain Injury

Lorna Gibson
Department of Materials Science and Engineering, MIT

Woodpeckers peck to find insects to eat, to attract a mate (through
drumming) and to build cavity nests. They have to hit the tree hard enough
to drill into it. Why don’t they get brain injury? We’ll view the video,
Built to Peck, which looks into woodpecker pecking behavior and explains
how woodpeckers avoid brain injury.


If anyone would like to bring a baked item, bought item or drink that would
be fantastic! Please email Carol Thrope at <clt51...> so we can

Hope to see you there!!!

Subject: Re: [Arlington Birds] Peregrine Horn Pond [1 Attachment]
MJ,

Paul Roberts noted the Mystic Dam juvenile peregrine was a 2017 hatch year juvenile from the Watertown nest.

Paul, or another observer, likely reported the sighting and received an update on the date and location of the banding,
along with information on siblings banded at same time.

In many cases, these sightings of Peregrines with leg bands are reported to staff at MassWildlife. They keep careful
track of where and when juveniles have been banded and maintain historical records. They welcome these sightings
and documenting photographs, if possible.

Here’s the scoop below on Peregrine Falcons and leg bands. Most of the recent bandings in Mass. have been with
the alphanumeric bi-color Type 12 band black over green. The bi-colored bands on usually on the left leg with the
silver federal band on the right leg.

Hope you find this helpful!

Best and thanks,

Craig Gibson
Winchester

Peregrine Falcons are fitted with metal leg bands to provide researchers with valuable data on peregrine survival rates, dispersal distances, and population growth rates.
The standard leg band for Peregrines is a silver metal band issued by the federal Bird Banding Lab. The band is inscribed with a unique 9 digit code that allows birds to be identified during future resights or captures. To report seeing one of these bands, visit the ReportBand.gov website.
A second bi-color band is fitted on the falcon’s opposite leg and includes a field-readable alpha-numeric code. Falcons in the Eastern US are banded with either BLACK over RED (1989-2004) or BLACK over GREEN (2000 – present). There are also several orientations and alphanumeric character arrangements on the bands. When reading a band, an observer should note the top character and its orientation (vertical or horizontal), the top background color, then note the bottom character code, orientation, and color.

Subject: [Arlington Birds] Bald Eagle at Fresh Pond; Great Horned Owls in the Fells
a few nice sightings from today…

Saw an adult Bald Eagle at Fresh Pond this morning (around 8am) - the Glacken Slope side of pond. Seemed to be air-drying itself. Also seen - the male Canvasback, White-winged Scoter and a Junco - along with the usual suspects.

This evening I was in the Middlesex Fells with Janet K. Around 6pm, we heard a distant Great Horned Owl - and then a second one - dueting back and forth. Unseen by us, they crossed over our path and starting calling again. We spotted one, perched precariously atop a thin bare branch. It’s body seemed to rock back and forth each time it called. They relocated again, leaving us in the moon-lit woods of the Fells.

MJ,

Thanks for checking in on the Peregrine!

There were numerous sightings by others last week of a juvenile Peregrine near the dam, but no postings
that have been made in regard to those sightings.

This morning, it was an adult perched on a vertical tree limb on the island. It was seen and photographed at
a distance of over 300 yards! Clearly an adult, likely a male, but too far to detail a leg band.

It was likely one of the adults from the Woburn site. No chicks hatched in Woburn this year. Both adults in
Woburn have been seen the last number of days, after a long overdue return by the female.

Here is sighting with a documenting photo as reported to Ebird:

No, MJ, that is not the same bird. The Peregrine being seen recently at the Mystic Lakes usually is a juvenile male fledged this year from the Watertown site. There may be others stopping by occasionally, but no juveniles were produced in Woburn this year to my knowledge.

Middlesex Fells (Whitmore Brook path in Medford section):
4 Winter Wrens
9 Hermit Thrushes (a group of 6 in view all at one time)
2 Golden-crowned Kinglets
2 Ruby-crowned Kinglets
a number of Yellow-rumped Warblers - not counted

Brooks Estate (Medford) - some surprises, especially since it’s been a very quiet Fall at this location:
1 Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
1 Blue-headed Vireo
4-5 Hermit Thrushes being chased out of a Spindle (Euonymus) tree by a flock of Robins
1 Nashville Warbler
1 Black-throated Green Warbler
2 Golden-crowned Kinglets
3 Ruby-crowned Kinglets

Sandy Beach (Winchester):
4 Hermit Thrushes in the Spindle trees across from the beach
2 Golden-crowned Kinglets
2 Ruby-crowned Kinglets
All four kinglets were down by the little pond and came out together when I spished. One of the golden-crowns tried to scare me with his bright Halloween-orange head feathers.

Geoff Wilson, our chaperone and the landscaper for the property, publishes a newsletter that you may find interesting:

Here are the details for attending walks at this property:

Bear Creek is an upland sanctuary built on the Wheelabrator (formerly RESCO) landfill at the northern end of Rumney Marsh in Saugus and Revere. Access information is below. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to hike 3 – 4 miles. The property is mostly very open, so be prepared for sun, wind and weather.

This walk is free and open to the public, but also note that this property is accessible by invitation only and visitors need to be chaperoned at all times. Please allow roughly 4 hours for this field trip. The actual length of the trip depends on conditions and the birds present. It's usually difficult to break up the party if you need to be somewhere in the early afternoon. Come prepared to stay with the group.

Wheelabrator company has graciously stocked up on some extra pairs of binoculars, so if you or someone you know wants to learn about birds and birding, come on down. Please let me know you're coming so we can have a head count.

Bear Creek sanctuary access is via the Wheelabrator plant, 100 Salem Turnpike (Rte 107), Saugus. The rotary at the intersection of Rtes 60 and 107 is about 1½ miles southwest of the plant and about 1 mile east of Rte 1 exit on Rte 60. When traveling northeast on 107, if you go over the Ballard Street bridge (just after a set of lights) you’ve gone too far — turn back. Here is a link to google maps:

When you arrive, drive through the plant gates, park in the parking lot immediately and wait for the group. Please do not drive farther into the property without an escort.

Some of you may have wondered how come I didn't show up on the October 15 walk. Well, I was in Texas -- where else? I have family there so I take every excuse to go there because the birding is spectacular. My wife and I were in Houston for a week and -- aside from taking in the first game of the Astros - Yankees series at Minute-Maid Park and cheering wildly for the Astros -- we spent nearly two full days at the hawk watch platform at Smith Point, about 100 miles east of Houston. If you've ever hawk-watched at Cape May NJ you already know what this is like -- except that this is perhaps even more spectacular. This spot gets a quarter million migrating Broadwings the last week of September! And everything else as well! We were certainly not there at the peak of the Broadwing migration, but still saw very large kettles both days, perhaps 2000 Broadwings in all. The best, for me, were the numerous Swainson's Hawks, the dark-phase Broadwings (which I had never seen before -- they don't appear in the east much), multitudinous accipiters, and the White-tailed Kite.

I have put together an album of natural history photos from the Texas trip and hawk pix predominate:

Subject: Re: [Arlington Birds] Danehy Pard today Friday 27th
I had same question. I walked along the path with the reeds and brush on
the right, saw lots of sparrows. I assume there's water back there but
didn't find a path to it.

FYI, i went on weekday late aft. which was not optimum as it was very
crowded with after school activities.

Thanks

Rgds,
Rich

Is there an area of the park where there is actually water? I went to
where the 'wildlife area' is on the map but it was all dried up.

Thank you!

Great morning weather wise, less so with a cat patrolling edge of field
where there were numbers of unidentified sparrows that we never got on due
to the cat. Also see Mark' image of a blackbird on his list at
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40144207 . This bird was thought to
be a Rusty by some but seems to be a Grackle in the image.
This is the last of this year MCB & BBC Danehy trips led by me. Thanks to
