Subject: [MDBirding] mister and the birds
Yesterday afternoon around 4, I turned my watering wand to Mist and then sat back to watch the fun. The grackles arrived quickly and then the titmice, hummingbird, chickadees, cardinals. They were very happy birds as they cooled off and bathed.

The surprise bird was a female Redstart. I do not have a yellow book. Do they breed on the Eastern Shore or was this an early migrant?

thanks

Hi Tom (and all),

I am in the early stages of planning the next two walks and I have some tentative dates for August and October. I will announce the tours here or you can email me directly (tcarn [at] menv [dot] com) and I will add you to my mailing list. (I know not everyone checks this group regularly.) The mailing list also includes Hart-Miller Island bus/van tours.

Check Anne Arundel Bird Club's website too. They offer their own tours at Swan Creek and I think they have one scheduled for September.

The Tricolored Heron is still present at South Tract. Looking at it now. Just north of the floating bridge at Cash Lake, near the west lake edge where the blind is located. Feeding amongst the spatterdock plants. About 100 to 150 feet from the bridge. About even with the Wood Duck nest structure.

Still continuing this morning. Arrived at sunrise and showed for awhile before disappearing for an hour. Came back to the mud flats but very far out. Hard to find without binoculars. Was present when I left at 8:40 AM.

_______________________

I should have added some context. After looking at James Speicher's site I was encouraged to get my DIY dish out to capture this guy again. I have tried a number of times but got too much background noise. This was mid-Saturday afternoon and pretty windless. The junkyard dogs, chickens, and peacocks on the next property were quiet. Chickens on the other side also quiet.

Aside from a few estate properties and home size lots, I'd guess pretty much everyone on my road shoots. We have the ones you'd expect also lining the shoulder with beer cans and a group from NSA who built a hunting camp. Either side of me are hunters and to the NE of me is a rental where late afternoons on weekends, there seems to be a need to 'shoot something'. We do not allow any hunting on our property.

This rental property is ~1/4 mi from me (I am on 25 acres) but the sound comes thru as if my wife is shooting at me! This past Sunday, the NSA guys were shooting in a much more measured fashion.

This bird starts about 5:45 am and at times seems not to take a break 'till the sun sets. Other days, it sings for a minute or so, then takes long breaks? The woods are dense so I cannot seem to trap it with a camera. He also moves around within the heart of our woods with some frequency making it even more difficult. He is a bright spot and an annual guest.

It is present now. From parking walk down paved trail across lake. Take
first paved trail on left to floating bridge. On left side of bridge. The
rufous on Neck blends in well with mud.

From: Harry Armistead <harryarmistead...>
Subject: [MDBirding] Armistead library
Recently there've been messages from some on dispensing with their bird books. I am 78 and have been thinking about where to ultimately send my library. I'd welcome suggestions. Please reply off-line to harryarmistead at hotmail dot com . I may not respond to all suggestions.

On hand are 3,600 natural history titles, and still growing. I've been collecting in a casual way since the late 1950s. 13% of the titles are review copies, unpaid for, except for the labor of writing the reviews. I'd like all the books to end up at the same place. Inevitably many would be duplicates for that place, who might sell such, send them to departmental libraries, give them away, or whatever. They occupy about 110 yards of shelving.

This does not include journals, many of which I've discarded since so many are available online.

A few examples of holdings in select subject areas: Europe 126; raptors 111; SE Asia and the South Pacific 70; mammals 149; Africa 65; biography 76; Texas 42; botany 94; Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, and Virginia 165; Audubon 30.

This may be somewhat impressive, but an acquaintance of mine has c. 5,000 such titles! and is adding several 100 a year.

Just to clarify, Bent, BWP, or BNA (multivolume sets) count as just 1 title each.

Very grateful for any thoughts on this. Thank you - Harry Armistead, Philadelphia.

Subject: [MDBirding] MOS: Call for New Committee Members for 2020 Convention
Planning is already underway for the 2020 MOS Convention and we hope to
finalize the location and dates shortly. But we are in need of several new
members for the convention committee to organize this event. The
instructions for running a convention have been clearly summarized, with
each task (e.g. registration or finding speakers) given separately. New
committee members will therefore have an easy-to-follow set of instructions.
Experienced members of the committee will be on hand to help newcomers with
any questions. Regular committee meetings, most via telephone conference,
will also assist them. The annual convention is an essential event for our
society, but it can only happen if enough members step up and join the
effort. This convention will be special because it will celebrate our 75th
year as an organization. Please consider joining our team.

If you are interested, please contact Robin Todd at <robintodd1948...>
or 410-491-5333.

Yes, the homeowner and closest neighbor with a hummer feeder are

That is one Sasquatch-y looking hummingbird.

The photo is poor, but one can see the shape of the tail, which doesn't
look like a ruby-throated to me. Additionally, Jim reports a curved bill
(not really visible in the photo).

Subject: [MDBirding] Possible vagrant/escapee hummingbird in Silver Spring
On the evening of 7/4/19 I very briefly observed a large hummingbird on Lester Street in Silver Spring in a small private flower garden. I firmly believe it wasn't a Ruby-throated or a Selasphorus type, I spent that brief moment attempting to get a photo instead of mentally recording physical details of the bird as I am well aware that photographic proof of a Central/South American vagrant would be a necessity for documentation. That evening I searched the immediate area and kept near constant watch on this garden until dark. On the 5th I watched this flower garden from before sunrise for 5.5 straight hours with no sign of the bird and I bought and put a small hummingbird feeder in the garden in the afternoon. I am a lifelong avid birder from CT visiting the area. These are all the details I have or can share, so I would appreciate everyone take this as is and for whatever it's worth and just keep your eyes open. Being unable to attach the photo to this post, I emailed it to an officer with the Maryland Ornithological Society.
Thank you,
Jim Dugan

The MES birding trip to Poplar Island yesterday was very successful. There was no official list but I can report the highlights.

There were nesting Mallards (many downy young), and a few summering non-breeding diving ducks including Surf Scoters, a Black Scoter, two Long-tailed Ducks, and a male Ruddy Duck in breeding plumage; also a pair of Gadwall. The heronry showed Great, Snowy, and Cattle Egrets, Great Blue and Little Blue Herons. and Glossy Ibis. There were many full-grown young.

Yes, and sometimes birders can find great bargains on their web site. For example, I bought a copy of Bruce Beehler’s Birds of New Guinea for $25 when the going price at used book sites was over $200! (There is now a new edition so the old one’s value is back to $25 😄).

The better book world bins are another option, BBW sells on line and the

The gods favored you*, David, with the right place in the cosmos for the heron shots. Excellent. I see about four elements a wildlife illustrator would have had to imagine -on their best day- to simulate what you got for real.

It is also curious that your recordings have a similar background roar that I cannot seem to filter out of my iPhone DIY rig. I got some tips on an audio forum but I am not smart enough to use those programs. Cheers.

JUNE 28, FRIDAY. cattle egret 2. great blue heron 2. “our” 2 osprey young are getting big, starting to look like real people, have feathers on upperparts edged with buffy which distinguish birds of the year from adults, the buffy edges easily seen later when the birds are in flight. eastern cottontail 3 (2 of them small young), and gray squirrel 3, and in Woods 2 a doe with 2 spotted fawns. This is NOT good weather in which to be furry. 79-95, clear, calm, 80 degrees F. at 10:22 P.M.


Dispose of 10 boxes of old books (thank you Cordova book deposit). In one of the books is an old business card from P. H. Feddeman, who did caulking, weatherstripping, etc., and whose phone number was “St. Michaels 28F12”. a tiger swallowtail in Easton.


Take some of my brother’s old guns to Albright’s Gun shop for sale. I keep the old, twist steel, 16lb., 8 gauge, side-by-side shotgun, the 1906 pump action .22 rifle, and the 30-40 Krag-Jorgensen. George will keep the long, muzzle-loading Kentucky (Pennsylvania) “squirrel gun.” Derek wants the bolt action .22. But the old Sharp’s Rifle, Springfield breechloaders, 45-70, 30-06, the twist steel, hammer action, 12 gauge side-by-side, and some others are gone now.


For the time being we’ve retained the bayonets, pre-Revolutionary Cuban machetes, and daggers as well as the dysfunctional Mauser, and the dummy, practice hand grenade. I recommend Albright’s for any and all of your firearms needs.


In Poplar Cove the luxuriant growths of Ruppia maritima (widgeon grass; yes, the d is retained) is as rank as I’ve EVER seen it, in spite of major depredations the past 2 winters by hundreds of geese, dozens of swans, and a few ducks. Pity the poor outboard-motor-bound voyageur who tries to navigate through that stuff. But … let’s hear it for the great comeback of SAV … in some areas at least. Blue dashers love to sit on top of the Ruppia. Lots of fireflies in the early evening.


JUNE 29, SATURDAY. a male orchard Oriole flies across the cove. They used to nest in the yard every year, but now the trees are too big and the whole area is too grown up and enclosed to suit their tastes. Rain for 0.5 hrs. but shows < 0.1” in the rain gauge. 3 Fowler’s toads on the front porch. fat and appealing.


JUNE 30, SUNDAY. A birding trip for the 1st time since June 9, what a treat to get out again. EGYPT ROAD, DORCHESTER COUNTY, 8:30-10, clear, 78-83, WNW 5. northern bobwhite 5 (2 heard, 3 seen; nice to see a pair foraging in a recently worked, dirt field, but I’d rather she was barefoot and incubating, or leading a brood of 12 youngsters), yellow-breasted chat 4, field sparrow 1, summer tanager 1, bald eagle 3 adults, killdeer 1, wood duck 1 female, horned lark 1, black vulture 1, barn swallow 30 (incl. 5 flying juveniles),


purple grackle a juvenile being fed by an adult, brown thrasher 1, gray catbird 1, indigo bunting 6, blue grosbeak 3 (the latter 9 birds all singing males), greater yellowlegs 1, least sandpiper 11 (early migrants; the early bird gets the platyhelminth, or nematode, or whatever the hell they eat … ?), white-eyed vireo 1, common yellowthroat 2, northern mockingbird imitating a Virginia rail, osprey 2, chipping sparrow 5, eastern bluebird 6, great blue heron 2, mourning dove 6. great crested flycatcher 2.


NON-AVIAN TAXA: green frog 2, sika deer 2, woodchuck 1 (fat but running surprisingly fast), gray squirrel 2, eastern cottontail 1, painted turtle 1, black swallowtail 1, tiger swallowtail 1, red-spotted purple 1. a lot of cicada racket. The fields are mostly corn, soy beans, harvested wheat (big straw bales being trucked away), or else, recently worked, bare dirt. Egypt Road is prime habitat mixed but as the trees mature in the scrubby areas it will probably become less birdy. As this situation develops, I’m not certain how long the quail will continue here, one of the few places I know where it is fairly easy to at least hear them.


BLACKWATER NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, 10-12:30, fair, NW10-15, low 80s, tidal water somewhat low, fresh water low.


common gallinule 1, Virginia rail 1, (these latter 2 unsolicited), American white pelican 1, bald eagle 11, red-headed woodpecker 3 adults, osprey 7, summer tanager 1, white-eyed vireo 1, pileated woodpecker 1, ruby-throated hummingbird 5 (at the Visitor Center feeder), great egret 6, mallard 3, great blue heron 7, double-crested cormorant 4 (on the structure at Sewards), house sparrow 3, indigo bunting 1, eastern bluebird 2, common yellowthroat 1, orchard oriole 2, house wren 1, mourning dove 4 eastern kingbird 1, northern mockingbird 3. no gulls, terns, Canada geese, or shorebirds in spite of nice areas of exposed tidal mud.


NON-AVIAN TAXA: painted turtle 61, mud turtle 1, red-bellied cooter 3, eastern cottontail 1, buckeye 1, black swallowtail 1, tiger swallowtail 2, viceroy 1, American lady 3, white-tailed deer 1, muskrat 1, cloudless sulphur 1, common wood nymph 1, pterodactyl 0, spicebush swallowtail 1, and a few smaller butterflies, and many dragonflies, I don’t know how to ID plus some distant unIDd small sulphurs but no cabbage whites. It’s nice just to sit a while and watch over the V.C. butterfly garden, a garden indeed, where I see most of today’s butterflies, lots of cone flowers, hummers.


Back at Rigby’s Folly 2 pileated woodpeckers fly low and close across the driveway at the Waterthrush Pond. Seldom find other than just 1 individual in a day here.



JULY 1, MONDAY. Happy Fiscal New Year. an adult bald eagle. Leave by 9:30 A.M. Beautiful day, mid or low 70s, clear, winds NW 10, low humidity, a gem. makes it hard to leave.


NON SEQUITUR. One of the pleasures of moving is to happen on old books, untouched for years. This is from Fieldbook of natural history, 2nd edition, by E. Laurence Palmer, revised by H. Seymour Fowler (McGraw-Hill, 1975, 779 pages). On p. 544 in the DeKay’s Snake account one reads: “They are inhabitants of vacant lots in cities and so are well-known to boys.” This being the case, are we to assume that girls are too busy with their dolls and learning how to make cookies from their mothers that they miss out on the snakes? It also assumes that the boys put down their slingshots and Glocks long enough to mess with the snakes.


Best to all. - Harry Armistead, Philadelphia.

Subject: [MDBirding] Last August Overnight Pelagic by Paulagics?
Hi everyone:

For some reason the interest in birding Maryland's offshore waters has
waned over the last several years. There used to be waiting lists of people
wanting to go. For the last several years Paul Guris has had a nearly
impossible task in trying to get his boats filled enough to sail, let alone
fill to capacity. Last year's overnight pelagic didn't sail do to an
insufficient number of participants.

I understand that the costs of these trips are high in comparison to your
average weekend of birding, and being on the seas means your bird for
dollar ratio is less than spending a day in August getting early passerine
migrants and looking at shorebirds. However, August can be an outstanding
time for offshore birding and some of Maryland's rarest birds have been had
on these trips. The listers in the state have pretty much ticked off the
boxes for Maryland's pelagic species so if that is all you are interested
in doing, I get it. Seeing 3 species of storm-petrel, shearwaters, offshore
terns, and marine mammals can be so darned dull. Having a chance to see
White-faced Storm-Petrel and some Pterodroma petrels like Black-capped and
maybe another Mega rarity just isn't interesting enough to shell out $225
when you can be looking at bald Cardinals, House Sparrows and European
Starlings at your backyard feeder.

However, if you are looking for a chance to see something that you just
can't drive to and view whenever you're in the mood, this might be your
last opportunity with See Life Paulagics. Paul has stated that this will
likely be his last attempt to run one of these trips if he doesn't get the
support needed for the boat to sail. Coordinating one of these takes a lot
of time and effort. You just don't call a boat captain and say I want to
charter a boat to do this. Well, OK, you can try to do that but your
average charter fishing captain doesn't have the interest or ability to
hunt for and chase down seabirds when there's fish in them thar waters to
catch. Paul has a captain that enjoys chasing down seabirds and he does a
great job of getting on the birds when they allow it. It takes coordination
to line up a crew on the date of sailing. There's the expense to reserve
the boat. Supplies needed, like chum and oil to put out a slick. All of
this gets done, then enough people fail to sign up, the trip gets
cancelled, and all of the effort is all for naught. You can understand why
he may not do this again if this year's trip doesn't go because of a lack
of participation.

This year's trip is scheduled for Saturday, August 24th to Sunday August
25th. Here's the information from the Paulagics website:


*Lewes, DE: Sat, Aug 24 – Sun, Aug 25, 2019*

Boat: One of the Thelmas or whatever big boat HD [the ship captain] wants
to drive that day! (At least 100 ft.)

Depart/Return: 10:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Cost: $225

Lewes holds a sentimental spot in our hearts as the port where we ran our
first trip from in 2002. We have made some great discoveries together over
the years but the interest in the overnight trips has been waning for some
time. We’re going to give this one last chance but expect that this will be
the end of summer overnight trips out of this port for us. Hopefully, we
can get enough for a last go.


The boat still needs 10 more people to sail with 5 additional spaces open
to fill the trip to capacity. If you've considered one of these and haven't
made the jump, now's your time. If you've been on the fence with this one,
get off and sign-up. If you've never done one of these and you're afraid of
getting seasick, the boat will be at least 100 feet long and August
traditionally has some of the calmest waters off the coast, though there's
never a guarantee when you'e going to sea. Whatever you do, if you're
thinking about it, think no more, call or go online to sign up. You might
not ever get a chance to do this again in Maryland waters with this
company, and who knows how long it will be before another comes along to
try again. You can get to the website from the link below.

No additional sightings of the RNDU were observed following that of 5/26. I checked back daily for at least a week.

I'll update on eBird as well...don't know how unusual this delayed migrant was for MD/Fred Co.

Possibly, there are so many feeders available in addition to the ones
you know about that hummer feeding activity is spread among them
giving the appearance of fewer birds.

Now that you mention, Jim. Our numbers both in town (Salisbury) and 12mi W in the country are clearly down. I also feed 365 days, peanuts, peanut butter, and Oil seed. The cheerful little buggers have always been around - just not much this year. Titmouse also seem fewer in number.

Aggression on the playground?! At home, RWs dominate because we are on the creek/marsh. At my business, both Grackles and Blue Jays come flying in like F-18s. The Doves seem to stand up to them, but we've also not had the usual crew of House Finches here. (Gold Finches are still pretty common at home)

First Carolina Chickadee in the yard in over a year this morning.
None during my feeding season from NOV/2018 [suet] to JAN when BOSS is

That would take the last yard appearance back to the 2017/18 feeding

I know there weren't absent everywhere and were reported by many on

Hi Jeff

That's all good to know, tho none of it was mentioned earlier...

Phil Davis recently posted
[http://digest.sialia.com/?rm=message;id=1532224] about a nest loc for
RHWO's that gave all the info that was necessary to assure people that
the birds could be viewed without disturbance.

From your description and map it seemed to me that one would have to
get fairly close to view the bird and the fact that the cavity was 30'
off the ground may or may not give the bird assurance that it need
not concern itself with people traffic that might be generated by your
post.

Many new birders come to the "hobby" pristine, by which I mean they've
never belonged to an ornithology group. Those groups were a primary
source for birders to learn birding etiquette. That's missing in many
people today and yes I am dating myself to even mention this...

Jim S

ps In any event it was a good opportunity to post the "guidelines"...

Another Shenandoah Nat'l Park trail [Thornton River] work trip using
DEET 25% pump formula and another [seemingly] tick free day...weeds
are up to my knees in places. The downside of permithrin for me is
that working [trail weeding] while swaddled in protective clothing is
not viable. Birding in June/July/August/September swaddled up would
seem equally a problem.

Consumer Reports recent issue [July] has a side by side
DEET/Permithrin comparison. On DEET it says in part: "Deet has
proven to be so effective at repelling ticks that it's often used as
the standard to compare the efficacy of newer repellants...

They [CR] mention recent CDC studies of "P" but it's not clear that
the studies address David M's concern...

To Jim and others,



I’m not sure what in my post led you to believe the viewing is not at a safe distance? Have you ever been there?



I monitored this site in 2017 and 2018, during which time the Red-headed Woodpeckers have produced three broods and have been viewed by many. Usually only one overwinters but they have been steady at this location for three years.



Your concerns, while imaginative, are unfounded. The nest cavity’s have always been thirty feet or higher and the nest tree is surrounded by a large beaver pond. You can get closer to nesting Red-headed Woodpeckers at Blackwater and Calvert Cliffs then you can at Fox Chase. Unless you got a gun it would be hard to disturb them.



Fox Chase is a difficult place to find and when someone asks for help I have always tried to assist them in finding and seeing this beautiful bird. I believe that is what this site is for and I followed all the posting rules.



The biggest threat to these birds is the expansion of route 32, as the nest site is less than a hundred yards from the current road.

My concern relates to Group Guideline #5:

5) The posting of sensitive species or highly sought species on
sensitive habitat or private property should be avoided. Examples of
inappropriate posts include:
- Roosting locations of Barn, Long-eared or Northern Saw-whet Owls
- Breeding locations of Golden-winged Warblers or Henslow's Sparrows
that can't be accessed from public roads or public trails
- Exact nest locations of any species that can't be viewed from a safe distance

The location indicated seems to preclude viewing at a safe distance
and might cause the bird to abandon nesting if frequently disturbed.

Group guidelines are often mentioned, but seldom seen...here's an
attachment in pdf.

I am pretty sure I saw a creature like this before but never remembered it long enough to look it up: a Snowberry Clearwing Moth.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemaris_diffinis

It moves a lot, so was not an easy catch for my camera. I have some more pics to put together about the activity around this bush.

I'm glad to have finally seen this bird, which has been singing in the neighborhood treetops for several weeks.

MDBirding is an open group for discussing the topics of birds and birding in Maryland and DC. Discussions range from backyard birds to regional rarities. There are two main communication platforms for MDBirding, the Google Group Email Listserv and the Facebook Group. Read below to figure out main differences between the two groups. We encourage new members to join both groups to really get a sense of what Maryland & DC Birdng is all about!

Subject: Re: [MDBirding] Re: Free Tick Testing Available

Does anyone know the effect permethrin has on insects, butterflies,
etc? Since permethrin-laden clothes kills ticks, it will also harm
other critters with which it comes in contact? Does enough permethrin
come off your clothes and onto the vegetation you walk through to leave
a trail-of-death in your wake?

I can guess the answers to these questions are yes and no but I'd like
to know what the studies say. After all, permethrin is a pesticide.

Yes, studies have shown ticks are not particularly put off by DEET - permethrin is their nemesis. Just don’t spray it on your skin.

I've been birding in Maryland and Delaware since the 1980's and almost every
time I went out in the spring and summer, I came home with tick and chigger
bites. I was referred to as a "tick magnet" by my birding friends. A few
years ago, a birder/photographer friend of mine, Dave Brenneman, recommended
I try Permethrin. I put it off and continued using other bug sprays and
continued to get tick and chigger bites. This spring I finally gave in and
sprayed my birding pants and a pair of socks with Permithrin. The
manufacturer stated that a treatment would last about six weeks (washing
once a week).

I bird about one day a week. The results have been amazing. I have not had
a single tick bite this summer. In fact, I've only found one tick on my
pants and have had only one chigger bite. This stuff really works!

Marjie is out working the flower beds at least three times a week. The dog
brings them in so they appear to originate in the house.

Luckily, in nearly 30 years here we have had no 'bullseye' rashes or other
overt symptoms. This seems like a good research program. Again, thanks.

We successfully moved the hummingbird feeder and had no problem attracting
the birds to it. It's nice not to have bluebird poop all over the ports.

My husband and I were sitting on the back deck tonight enjoying this
glorious evening and listening to the Orchard Oriole. I had my bins on
another bird when the oriole passed right in front of us and flew past the
neighbor's house. Happily, a few minutes later, he landed in our honey
locust and we had clear views of the singing bird. It's an adult male, not
an immature. I'm glad to have finally seen this bird, which has been
singing in the neighborhood treetops for several weeks.

Happy summer!

Just a heads up to Jeff and others: the “tracks” map that appears on your eBird checklist if you use eBird Mobile while walking around a site is only visible to you and to others to whom you have shared the checklist so that they get the checklist in their own eBird accounts. Those maps are not visible to the public, not even if you provide the link to the eBird checklist. That’s covered in this news release from eBird: https://ebird.org/news/new-checklist-view-in-ebird

Frank and those interested,



See attached checklist:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57563711



The map on the checklist shows the route I take to see the Red-headed Woodpecker (blue line on map). I park on Fox Chase Road by some wooden posts denoting Howard County open space (white circle on map). From there I walk around the retention ponds counter clockwise eventually crossing a cement culvert. This is where it gets tricky because there is no path just deer trails and lots of ticks. Follow the blue line from the checklist is the best I can tell you. The State Highway Administration wetlands, where the woodpecker has nested the last two years, is where the blue trail ends.



If you go in the morning you need a rain suit due to head high wet vegetation. Water proof boots are a must as is tick protection. Very few venture there in summer. Best time to view them is winter!



Good birding!

Lisa,



You might want to look into getting the new book published by Johns Hopkins Press earlier this spring: Birds of Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia, by Bruce Beehler with photos by Middleton Evans. See https://issuu.com/johnshopkinsuniversitypress/docs/birds_sample_pages for sample pages. You can buy it directly from Johns Hopkins or from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Birds-Maryland-Delaware-District-Columbia/dp/1421427338 The book is really a treat. The photography is stunning and the book is packed with information, including natural history. The only drawback (I say this humorously) is that every time I pick it up to look up something specific, I get distracted by something else in the book and forget why I was looking at it in the first place.

Wow. I didn’t realize all these species potentially stick around. I live near the C&O Canal, but also close to Beltway. Thanks for all the detailed responses. That is what I love about this group. I learn a lot about the natural history of species, which you don’t get on E-bird.

A little over a week ago I walked a route from McKee Beshers and out along the C&O Canal towpath and back along Sycamore Landing Road. I recorded 5 singing American Redstarts - most along Sycamore Landing Road. I was surprised to find this many - it was the same number of singing Northern Parula that I recorded.

Interestingly, in the 1940s, when Roger Tory Peterson did a bird survey in Rock Creek Park, Redstarts were among the most common breeders.

In any case, the most recent Maryland-DC Breeding Bird Atlas will give you info on what warblers breed in Maryland, and where. Local breeders around here include Parula, Pine, Prairie, Worm-eating, Yellow, Blue-winged, Hooded, Kentucky (the latter three much reduced in last 20 years, though), as well as ones mentioned earlier, and when you get to Western MD, many other species such as Black-and-White, Chestnut-sided, Cerulean, Black-throated Green, etc.

There will be another Atlas project starting in 2020 and we will know more then how we stand on all of Maryland’s breeding birds.

Thanks very much, Jeffrey.
I did have the same problem Les Culler just mentioned.  I can find the site location from your checklist, but not the detailed map with the blue line.  But in any event, it's probably not wise for me to attempt the trail until the winter, given that I now have a bit of trouble walking, particularly when I can't clearly see the trail.

So I have a second question - is the Woodpecker resident there?
Thanks again!

Actually you can learn a lot from eBird about what birds summer here. In the Explore Data section, you can select to generate Bar Charts for the whole state or a particular county. The charts which are generated will show which species are present in your designated region at which times of the year and how abundant they are, based on eBird reports.

Frank and those interested,



See attached checklist:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57563711



The map on the checklist shows the route I take to see the Red-headed Woodpecker (blue line on map). I park on Fox Chase Road by some wooden posts denoting Howard County open space (white circle on map). From there I walk around the retention ponds counter clockwise eventually crossing a cement culvert. This is where it gets tricky because there is no path just deer trails and lots of ticks. Follow the blue line from the checklist is the best I can tell you. The State Highway Administration wetlands, where the woodpecker has nested the last two years, is where the blue trail ends.



If you go in the morning you need a rain suit due to head high wet vegetation. Water proof boots are a must as is tick protection. Very few venture there in summer. Best time to view them is winter!



Good birding!

Wow. I didn’t realize all these species potentially stick around. I live near the C&O Canal, but also close to Beltway. Thanks for all the detailed responses. That is what I love about this group. I learn a lot about the natural history of species, which you don’t get on E-bird.

I’ve had one Redstart singing here in our yard, presumably breeding. Also Parula and Common Yellowthroat. That’s typical for our yard.
Common Yellowthroats seem scarce to me this year, everywhere I go. Also Marsh Wrens seem scarce.

Subject: Re: [MDBirding] Ceruleans in Central MD
Another useful reference for what birds are where is the venerable Field List of the Birds of Maryland, aka the Yellowbook (so called for its yellow cover), published by MOS. Although the publication is now outdated (1996), it is still an extremely useful and compact, easy-to-use reference, showing bar charts for occurrence throughout the year along with columns showing whether each bird is found, or not, in each of the counties of MD. A “B” indicates breeding. The Yellowbook is long out of print but available for free download on the MOS website at https://mdbirds.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Birds-of-MD-FINAL.pdf. You just have to take some of the distributions and dates with a grain of salt, because of the datedness, and compare with other references for more current details.

In my years of birding at Blue Mash, Prairie was an uncommon visitor. As the habitat changes that may have changed as well. Yellow Warblers nest there and the once largest warbler, Yellow-breasted Chats, do as well. And perhaps Ovenbirds in the back woods.

Interestingly, in the 1940s, when Roger Tory Peterson did a bird survey in Rock Creek Park, Redstarts were among the most common breeders.

In any case, the most recent Maryland-DC Breeding Bird Atlas will give you info on what warblers breed in Maryland, and where. Local breeders around here include Parula, Pine, Prairie, Worm-eating, Yellow, Blue-winged, Hooded, Kentucky (the latter three much reduced in last 20 years, though), as well as ones mentioned earlier, and when you get to Western MD, many other species such as Black-and-White, Chestnut-sided, Cerulean, Black-throated Green, etc.

There will be another Atlas project starting in 2020 and we will know more then how we stand on all of Maryland’s breeding birds.

Thanks, Susan. I hear them in spring, but cant’t see them. We did see and hear a gorgeous male Hooded Warbler in the wet woods at Patuxent in late spring, which got me wondering if they nested here. Also, meant Mark England, not Garland.

Subject: [MDBirding] Ceruleans in Central MD
May not bother doing this email after this spring, but for what it's worth, I think it's likely that no successfully breeding CERW have been found in the Patapsco Valley (PV) this season--hope I'm wrong. There had been a couple of possible candidates, but I think they left. Another hopeful was hosted by Eden Mill in HaCo for about a week, but I think it's gone, as well. In regard to the PV, numbers have tanked from 5-6 in 2013 to 0 now--but, who knows, maybe one or more CERW are lurking there, somewhere. HOPE SO! CERW does seem strong at Susquehanna SP.


On a side note, I fear that the MOWA at Maryland High Point, which had apparently bred there the last two years, left after showing up for a short time recently. What is there are several Hooded (among other birds), including one which does an excellent job of imitating MOWA.


Well, at least the CERW at Prettyboy Hemlock Gorge bridge area looks to be successful for the 2nd straight year.

Kurt,

Worcester County does not have a record. Caroline County has the first Eastern Shore record.

The complete list of Maryland Black-bellied Whistling Duck records can be found in the MD/DC Records Committee database. This is list is only missing the 3 records from this month, two from Baltimore County and one from Queen Anne’s County.

The Maryland Biodiversity page has a good visual summary. https://marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=900

Yes there were 5 on the pond between Charlestown Village and the Giant on
Wilkens Ave, as well as in Patterson Park. See Marylandbiodiversity.com.
BBWD has been recorded in all the Western Shore Counties, southern Maryland
Counties, and MontCo. Oddly not in the Counties bordering the Bay on the
East side. The only county on the Eastern Shore with a record is Worcester.

Lou,

I recall that there was a small group of BBWD at the pond at the Charlestown Village Retirement Community in Baltimore County in June-July of 2010. They were visible from an adjoining shopping center back lot, and seen by many, but not me. I tried but did not see them. They have also been reported from Patterson Park in the past, and I think there have been some other scattered occurrences around Baltimore. Lou, perhaps you saw some of those other birds in Baltimore County or City.

Lou,
When the Yellow Book was written (1996) there was only one record
accepted by the records committee and one or two others with review
pending. Since then there have been over a dozen additional records in the
state including multiple records for Baltimore City/County. I do not know
what you have seen in the past.

BBWDs are now virtually annual in MD. Here's a screen shot of reports, on eBird. The red pins are less than 30 days old. Sadly, we did not know about the Calvert County birds so missed them. And there is a record of a single bird from St. Mary's that was on private property that Patty Craig and Anne Bishop were able to see and photograph.

The was a black bellied whistling duck at Merritt Point Park earlier the year.  Many people got photos around June 6-9. I have not seen or heard of any recent sightings there but it was a first for me.A friend of mine went to McDonough Pond this am.  She did not see the ducks but a regular walker told her that this was the first time he had not seen the ducks in several days.

I unexpectedly had to go back home from town this morning about 9 am and there was a new hen with a brood of three poults in our front pasture. Not only was she smaller than 'what we thought was our regular hen' but her poults were also about half the size. What a pleasant surprise. I just keep a little camera in the car and was fiddling to get it going as she walked away.

Cool, Harry. "True to its colloquial name of “rain crow”, a yellow-billed cuckoo calls twice soon before the onset of said meteorological phenomenon."

'First I heard of that. Now I'll have to go to Youtube to know what I am listening for. Thanks.

Big thanks for that, Marcy. ... I could keep them supplied! My ticks start to bloom in April and go well into the Fall. We're on 25 ac. on the marsh so we get all God's creatures. (have not seen a Black Window yet, but carefully pick up lumber that has been laying around) ..lotsa snakes too, but they are good,

I probably average 4-5 itchy tick bites at any given time summer. I work clearing deadfall in our woods and beat back weeds, etc. on weekends. Marjie is out working the flower beds at least three times a week. The dog brings them in so they appear to originate in the house.

Luckily, in nearly 30 years here we have had no 'bullseye' rashes or other overt symptoms. This seems like a good research program. Again, thanks.

Tick tip: Tall rubber boots and do not reach down into the brush. You could spend a lot of time over by me and not get bit.

Subject: RE: [MDBirding] BBWD
This has been a banner year for the post-breeding (?) dispersal of this species, much as last summer was for Roseate Spoonbills. There were up to a dozen reported in Pennsylvania near the Black-backed Oriole location in late May, and there are still two in Lancaster County, PA. Eight were found in upstate NY, just north of the PA line in mid May. Perhaps the Owings Mills birds are some portion of the PA or NY flocks seen in May.

This is about the time of year when BBWDs range into the area. Their range is expanding and eventually, they'll probably be breeders. Doubtful that these are anything but truly wild birds.

Subject: Re: [MDBirding] BBWD
This is about the time of year when BBWDs range into the area. Their range is expanding and eventually, they'll probably be breeders. Doubtful that these are anything but truly wild birds.

From: Harry Armistead <harryarmistead...>
Subject: [MDBirding] Ferry Neck, Talbot County, May 31-June 3, 2019.
I’m late with this, but for the archival record, here it is anyway.


FERRY NECK, TALBOT COUNTY, MARYLAND, MAY 31 - JUNE 3, 2019. Most of the time spent doing chores, but there’s always an ear and an eye open for critters.


MAY 31, FRIDAY. 5 wild turkeys across from Town & Country, Rt. 33 near Easton. arrive 1:45. cattle egret 5, bald eagle 3, pileated woodpecker 1, red-tailed hawk 1, brown thrasher 1, northern flicker 2, snowy egret 2, cedar waxwing 2, house finch 2. no terns or gulls; they disappear for a few weeks every year at this time.


snout 1, a butterfly not seen often here. tiger swallowtail 1. gray squirrel 4. eastern cottontail 2. 0.25” in the rain gauge since May 27. nice green tree frog chorus over towards Anderby Hall. 81, fair, NW5 - SW5 - calm.


JUNE 1, SATURDAY. a cattle egret lands on the mud at Poplar Point with a frog it dips in our brackish water 15 times, then swallows it. Liz witnesses a kerfluffle between a green heron, a red-tailed hawk, and an eastern kingbird. cedar waxwing 7. downy woodpecker 2. George arrives from the M.O.S. convention, sees 2 pileated woodpeckers as he comes up the driveway. yellow-billed cuckoo 1. tree swallow 1. bald eagle 1. great egret 2. male osprey arrives with a fish for our incubating female, an event we seldom see. She is acting as if brooding youngsters, shielding them from the sun. great blue heron 3.


overcast becoming fair, 70-87, E or SE5, then NW10 becoming near calm.


NON-AVIAN TAXA: a snout out on the dock lands on my scope tripod. eastern cottontail 3. red fox 2 adults plus a kit. gray squirrel just one (feeders no longer maintained). deer just 1. our Magnolia grandiflora finally has blossoms; all the others hereabouts have been out for a week or so. 2 Cope’s gray tree frogs. I unload 5 boxes of books on Chesapeake Bay and the Delmarva Peninsula to leave room for other titles in our new Philadelphia apartment. A 5” five-lined skink on the dock, where we usually don’t see them.


JUNE 2, SUNDAY. 3 cattle egrets in Field 1 that George photographs, utilizing the time-honored gambit of using his car as a blind. a female ruby-throated hummingbird at the feeder. loads of Fowler’s toads. bald eagle 2. great egret 1. unload 3 more boxes of Delmarva books George has brought. 7 cattle egrets seen from the dock in the late P.M. when it has become nearly completely overcast but with isolated peach-colored areas near the horizons.


72-82 then falling fast to 69 by 8 P.M., fair becoming, as I said, overcast, SW5-10 then changing to NW15-30 with some light rain, dramatic thunder and not-so-dramatic lightning. True to its colloquial name of “rain crow”, a yellow-billed cuckoo calls twice soon before the onset of said meteorological phenomenon. I clear the overhead stuff on all the trails except Lucy Point trail, BUT, there are black locusts downed by a recent, strong west windstorm I cannot deal with.


JUNE 3, MONDAY. an Imm. bald eagle over Field 1 and 3 cattle egrets in the field. Another eagle over Woods 1. clear, NW10-15, 69 degrees F., a beauty, but we have to return to Pennsylvania.


Best to all. - Harry Armistead, Philadelphia.

Ticks seem to be horrible this year. This was posted on Maryland Mushrooms and Mycology Facebook page and I thought I would pass it along.

I've never had a problem with ticks at Oxbow Lake until this year. I've pretty much given up birding until winter - hope it gets cold soon! Thank goodness I can bird vicariously via Facebook!
