Subject: [GABO-L] Georgia Evening Gr0sbeaks This Season???
Hi All,

Well, 'Tis The Season, are they accidentally on their way to Georgia, or... Are They Already Here?!!

Evening Gr0sbeaks have been photographed in both Orange County, North Carolina and Montgomery County, Tennessee this week, including a male in NC! Will we get to see some in Georgia this season? Hope so, especially a male, the eBird checklists with the photos are below.

12/9/2018 - Orange County, North Carolina:

I think the only Georgia Evenings we've had in the last 10 years have been the Whitfield County (2010) and the Fannin County (2013) birds. Thanks so much for those and for those hosts who shared them with the birding community!

Good Birding All!

Subject: [GABO-L] How to create a sandhill crane (or any other bird species) map using eBird sightings

Hello again,
Several people have asked me recently how to find/create a map like the one I referred to about tracking sandhill crane dots. I used eBird to do it. Knowing how to use eBird to make this kind of map is a really cool. And so useful!

I want to thank Sandra Garber for teaching me how to do this, also Katie Edwards and Bill Everitt for asking me how to find a sandhill crane map and encouraging me to share the how to's.

A couple of years ago I learned how to create a sandhill crane map when I emailed Sandra and asked her, "How do you know I saw sandhill cranes today?" I really, really wanted to know because I knew there must be something she was looking at that I would like to look at also.

So here goes -

Right now, I only want to see Sandhill Crane dots for Dec, 2018. You can chose any date range you want, from the Past or Present.

* While in eBird, at the top, poke Explore
* Key in Sandhill crane (or the bird you want to look at), then you have to click on the name of the bird to actually choose that bird so it comes up on the map.
* On the far right side of the screen, you want to put a check mark in the Show Points Sooner box
* Next you want to change the date range (you find this in the top middle portion)
* You poke the little down arrow and choose what you want to show.
* Since I ONLY wanted to see what was happening in Dec, I entered Dec as my month (shows Dec to Dec)
* Scroll down and in the next section chose current year (I chose current year so it reads 2018-2018).
* Then you poke set Date range

* The Map changes and then you can zoom in to see the red dots.
* You can then click on the red dots to see who saw the bird, when & where they saw it and how many did they see. You can also see how many times they have reported birds from that spot and how far back they have been reported if your date range was 1900 to 2018. The historical listing of sightings.

What I did as a convenience for me, I bookmarked the map for sandhill cranes so I can quickly go and look. I do have to change the date range and poke show points sooner each time BUT I don't have to hit Explore, tell it what species, etc, each time.

Have tons of fun playing around with this. You can compare Nov sightings to Dec sightings. Earlier you could scroll up the map and see there were still sandhills up near the Great Lakes at the beginning of Dec, so on and so forth. It is very useful at the beginning of the month and during migration to track the movement of a particular species up and down their migration paths.

Sorry I don't know how to insert a link into a plain text email (or do a tiny URL thing).

Subject: [GABO-L] Sandhill Cranes, Cherokee County
Between 3:15 and 4:10 we saw and heard hundreds of Sandhill Cranes as we walked in Sweetwater Campground. Some small groups were low and countable. Others were high, large and I should be able to count them in photos taken. However, many flights could be heard but not spotted since they were behind trees, ridges, or flying too high. The weekend rains raised Allatoona's lake level by 7 inches, covering the sandbars at Fields Landing. I think if they had been there, we would be having another 1000+ overnight for the Sandhills. Maybe tomorrow. Just wanted to let everyone know there are more Sandhills on there way from up here moving toward Atlanta. Thanks for everyone's reports today.

Subject: [GABO-L] Sandhill Cranes - West Cobb County
Hello Everyone!
When I got up and looked outside today I said, hmmm, I think there will be a huge sandhill crane movement today. A lot of pent up demand and trapped sandhills that want to move south.

Around noon Victor thought he heard some but I didn't. However while I was at Green Meadows(GM) today, with Pat Pepper and Kathy Andregg, we saw them! The first huge bunch was totally silent. I just happened to look up in time to see them going over the trees between the house and the big meadow.

Then the next batch went right over the house and the guys working on the house saw and paid attention to them as well.

Just before we left GM we saw another small flock of 37. They did not have a good thermal at all. They were vigorously flapping their wings which I don't usually see. The sandhills were low enough you could see the black wing tips.

What was fun today is that Victor was home so he would text me every time he saw sandhill cranes in hopes that I would see them. I've never had an early warning system before while I was at Green Meadows!

Just as I pulled into the Kroger parking lot Victor texted me again that another flock was flying by at the house. So I stopped and watched and yep...I got more as they flew over Kroger. In total I ended up seing 614 sandhill cranes.

Hal Massie had 400 sandhill cranes fly over Thomaston at 1:00 pm before I saw any flying here. He just now has another 400 going over his house in Musella.

When I finally made it home I looked at the sandhill crane map and saw so many dots with today's date. I can't wait to see how many more dots appear for today. And yes, the majority were east of I-75 but there was a nice scattering of dots to the west of I-75. Lucky me!

Here's hoping more people are lucky this afternoon (as well as Weds & Thurs)!

I had this flock fly south over the Georgia Tech campus at 2:20 pm. There
were easily 500 in several flocks and they kept coming even as I had to go
back in.

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Sandhill cranes
Based on reports here by others, messages sent to me offline from several
people, and my own observations, I am roughly estimating that at least 3000
sandhills have flown over the greater Atlanta area since 2 pm (it is now
3:13).

Subject: [GABO-L] Sandhill Cranes Flyover
Taking a quick break from work to go outside I heard and then saw several
V-formations of Sandhill Cranes fly over and kettling, about 175 total. The
weather today seems conducive to more such flyovers. I’m near the Atlanta
airport, and these cranes were flying nearly due south here at 11:30, so
perhaps they will be spotted by others south of me during the day.

Subject: [GABO-L] Lake Lanier Sunday - Hall Co
I spent 4hrs on the water yesterday, but unfortunately the high wind/water
conditions made it impossible to run the boat south to the dam.

That said, the north end of the lake (Chestatee to Wahoo) was well
populated with gulls. I stopped counting at 700 Ring-billed Gulls and 300
Bonaparte’s. Literally a string of gulls from Port Royale to the Wahoo
bridge.

I picked through as many as possible, and was interested to note how few
first year birds were present. Only about a dozen Common Loons, one
Double-crested Cormorant, and 3 flocks of buffleheads (total around 60)

Anyway, I presume that the south end numbers continue to build with the
continual cold fronts, so it’s a good time to be looking for irregulars.

Subject: [GABO-L] Cumberland Is. CBC vacancy this weekend
Hey folks,

I hope that you are fine & getting ready to have some quality birding.

The Cumberland Island CBC (an invitation only count) has had a recent
unexpected vacancy for the Island team which would survey on foot the
southern parts of the island: Jetty, South End Flats, most of South Point
Trail, & some of the beach. In the late afternoon they would be birding the
Dungeness Beach portion w/ the team just n. of them.

The dates involved are Fri, 12/14 thru Sun, 12/16/2018. This needs to be an
experienced birder (shorebirder preferred) & one capable of doing all day
outside birding by foot. BTW, note that all the other teams (Mainland &
Island) are filled.

Team #5 would shuttle Team#6 down that morning via vehicle & then pick them
back up for the last part. This team, like the others, would be surveying
from at least 7:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with possibly some pre-dawn nocturnal
birding as part of the shuttle & voluntary post sunset birding after their
return.

This would involve being out all day in the weather (can be cold, rainy) w/
possible water over the S. Point Tr. at some point. Lunch would be in the
field. I will supply forms & maps needed pre-count.

Note that this particular CBC was created to provide a more complete
wildlife survey for management on Cumberland Island National Seashore & now
Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base plus Crooked River State Park. Thus, for
some species we provide a little more detail such as any interesting
behavior, habitat condition, interactions (human or mixed species), etc. We
do voluntary pre & post count day supplemental birding.

This team's area has produced SNOWY PLOVER, WILSON'S PLOVER, masses of
other shorebirds, REDDISH EGRET, PEREGRINE FALCON, COM. GROUND-DOVE,
NELSON'S SPARROW, SALTMARSH SPARROW, SEASIDE SPARROW, SEDGE WREN, ICELAND
GULL, GLAUCOUS GULL, rafts of sea ducks, PURPLE SANDPIPER & many more.
Non-CBC there has been COM. EIDER too around the Jetty.

For the Island portion I will mention now just a few key things to know &
later provide more detail for whoever is chosen to join this zone. Jim
Ferrari is this year's #6 (Jetty/S. End Flats) team leader.

For participation on Island teams, you will come over on your choice (no
charges, I take care of reservations) of Ferry on Fri. (checking in 30 min.
before departures of 9 a.m. & 11:45 a.m.). You will stay Fri & Sat. night
in the Dorm in the Dungeness area. Then depart on Sun. on your choice of
Ferry (departure 10:15 a.m. & 4:45 p.m.).

Bring all personal needs including bath items & a sleeping bag for the twin
beds (2 per room). We will have a pot luck for Fri. supper (bring item to
share) & often there are leftovers for Sat. There is a kitchen w/ stove,
fridges, microwave & assorted pots, pans, dishes, etc. Otherwise, bring
food for meals for the length of your stay, snacks, & water. Plus, a
spotting scope & audio would be good. (Jim does have a scope).

On Fri & Sun you have your choice of non-CBC activities but we often visit
via cars Plum Orchard Pond late Fri. & the Jetty on Sun. morning (w/
afternoon visit north to Burbank Pt for those staying all day). These are
the 2 days set aside for any extended photography, and during Count Day
folks are expected to have their main (not exclusive) attention on doing
the CBC as planned. We also have fun waiting to see if the ghosts of the
island will appear as in the past!!

This is historically a great, friendly bunch of talented & dedicated folks
who have contributed much vital & new information about SE GA birds. Let me
also take the opportunity to say here another big "thanks" to all of you
who have helped in former times. This CBC could not have been done without
all of these birders past & present!!

Please contact me asap if you are interested & think you will be able to
participate as described. Thanks for your consideration. Take care.

Sincerely,
Sheila Willis

Subject: [GABO-L] Cobb County Lakes today
I checked out Lake Acworth and Allatoona today to see what ducks may have
been brought in with all this lovely weather. Yesterday I saw nothing on
Acworth when I checked but today was a different story. I had a nice
assortment of ducks on Lake Acworth that include a raft of Lesser Scaup,
Red-breasted Mergansers and two female Common Goldeneye along with a few
Bufflehead and Ruddy ducks. There were a couple of Horned Grebes as well
as two Bonaparte's Gulls. Had a much larger raft on the Allatoona side
with at least 275 Lesser Scaup, with a nice mix of Canvasback, Bufflehead,
Red-breasted Mergansers, Ruddy Ducks and several Horned Grebes. The entire
raft of ducks was put up in the air when an adult Bald Eagle made several
passes on them and they flew south towards Lake Acworth. I was unable to
relocate them on the lake but they may still be around. Nice to finally
see some ducks on the lakes!

Subject: [GABO-L] Waterfowl on Lake Hartwell, Hart County, 12/7/18
Hey all,

Since I had a break between finals I thought I’d check out Lake Hartwell to see what waterfowl was on the lake.

Nothing too unusual, but there was a nice raft of ducks that were best seen from the end of Elrod Ferry (.8 mile walk from the gate). I tried to get a better look from Big Oaks, but they were just too far out to make out anything.

Here’s the eBird list:
Canada Goose 40
Northern Shoveler 4 One male, three females.
Gadwall 5 Two males, three females.
Northern Pintail 2 Pair.
Canvasback 4
Lesser Scaup 110 Majority of the raft were scaup.
Aythya sp. 40 Redheads or scaup.
Bufflehead 8
Red-breasted Merganser 42 Best count, wouldn’t surprise me if there were more that I missed.
Horned Grebe 32 Counted, definitely more out there.
Mourning Dove 14
American Coot 12
Bonaparte's Gull 127 Counted, probably more than 200 on the lake, because there were a lot of distant white dots on the water.
Ring-billed Gull 62 A large group on the bank in someone’s backyard.
Common Loon 12
Turkey Vulture 4
Belted Kingfisher 1
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 2
Red-bellied Woodpecker 1
Hairy Woodpecker (Eastern) 1
Northern Flicker (Yellow-shafted) 1
American Crow 1
Carolina Chickadee 3
Tufted Titmouse 1
Brown-headed Nuthatch 4
Carolina Wren 2
Golden-crowned Kinglet 5
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Eastern Bluebird 2
Hermit Thrush 1
Northern Mockingbird 1
White-throated Sparrow 1
Song Sparrow (melodia/atlantica) 3
Pine Warbler 2
Northern Cardinal 1

Subject: [GABO-L] Sandhill Cranes, Lake Allatoona, Cherokee County
Sandhill Cranes are visiting Lake Allatoona, Cherokee County, this evening. A group of 11 were spotted on the far shore when we arrived at Fields Landing at 3:30 pm. They included at least one juvenile. This group were still in place when we left at 5:40 pm. Another group of 8 flew in to the sandbar, touched down briefly and then flew down the lake toward Sweetwater Campground. We had been hearing what sounded like a large number of Sandhill Cranes down on the shore of the campground and the 8 seemed to join them (that must be where the party is tonight). If you go to Sweetwater Campground tomorrow early morning, you may be able to catch them before they head out.

Subject: [GABO-L] dozens of Eastern Bluebirds on mountain top
In Blairsville, GA elevation 2534 ft, the top of mountain in a chain of
peaks, we had dozens of Eastern Bluebirds on a very chilly day. All puffy
and active, they were everywhere.

I wonder if being at a high altitude means they are in migration? Easier to
fly at higher altitudes?

Walked out front door and heard Sandhills flying. Before I could locate them, the noon emergency siren let loose and drowned everything out. Never did find see them, but did see several black and Turkey vultures and two hawks thermaling high. Should be another good Sandhill Crane sporting day. We haven't been down to Allatoona yet but the sandbars at Fields Landing should be visible today, tomorrow, and Friday for any who want to spot late afternoon fly ins or morning take offs.

This morning the first birds I saw were 5 blue jays sitting all together on one of my hawthorn trees. 5 is a treat but then the mother lode flew in...20 blue jays! I had to resort to counting them as they decided to leave since they were jumping all over the place. I have never seen a "flock" of jays before.

I believe all of their activities drew in a flock of 15 robins & 4 Northern flickers. Because the light level was so bad I could only ID one of the flickers as a female.

Subject: [GABO-L] Heard but not seen Sandhill Cranes
Hello Everyone!
I'm glad everyone east of I-75 is seeing sandhill cranes. We haven't seen any this week. I did hear them faintly 2 times around 1:00 today but very faint. They sounded like they were coming from way behind the house.

It was fun looking at the data points on eBird yesterday around 7:00 pm and seeing all the reports of sandhill cranes in GA. Especially how many dots had appeared since Sunday morning.

So far I'm the only dot to show up for today. It is also very interesting to see how the dots were west of I-75 in November and now they are mostly to the east of I-75.

Hi everyone,

I decided to check out Altamaha this rainy afternoon for ducks and
shorebirds, which were absent for the most part. But I did encounter a
LAPLAND LONGSPUR flying around the marsh cell directly ahead of the first
observation tower giving its distinctive flight calls. A new state bird for
me. eBird list below with pics. Happy Birding!

Hi All,

Regarding my 11/19 post about the new Sibley Birds 2nd Edition - Birds of North America field guide app for phones and tablets, etc., when the new app first came out in November amazingly it had some of the same bugs in it that the original printed edition (book, since corrected long ago) had back in 2014 when it first came out!

After reading of this online I couldn't believe that the new app on my phone had the same way too dark Scarlet Tanager in it (a sure sign) that the original book had in it when it first came out in the Second Edition March 2014 printed version! I also compared it to the last version of the app, still on my phone, and could see the two different colored Scarlet Tanagers just like in the books. This was really hard to believe since the book was corrected with the Second Printing July 2014!

---

DON'T purchase the book if it's a Second Edition March 2014 version as there were some color errors in the artwork, etc., in that one (although these hopefully are all offline and off of the shelves by now).

---

Anyway, David Sibley and the software publisher have already corrected this new app with a very recent update just a week ago, version 1.0.1, on Apple devices at least, and all is now well, on Apple devices at least. So make sure you update if you have the app as it first came out in November. I believe the Android version was updated as well but not sure (if anyone knows please chime in). If there are any remaining issues I bet they will be fixed quickly in future updates as well.

As far as I know the app is still on sale until mid-December for the introductory price of $9.99, an incredible bargain, and it is very highly recommended!

Thanks to David Sibley and the software publisher for correcting the issues so quickly and supporting this very important product properly in the same manner that the original book was quickly updated and fixed with a second printing back in 2014!

Good Birding All!

Subject: [GABO-L] Sandbar visible - Fields Landing Park, Cherokee County
This afternoon the sandbar out from Fields Landing at Lake Allatoona is exposed for the first time this season. Time to start watching for flights of Sandhill Cranes coming in and taking off. Don't know what this Saturday's rain will do, but if we get a lot, the sandbars may be submerged again until more water can be released.

Hello..
I drove up to Blue Ridge today and managed to see 212 sandhill cranes on 575 at Mile Marker 21 in Cherokee County at 11:03 am. I had been bemoaning the fact that I wasn't going to be home today and there would probably be sandhill cranes flying. Yep...and they were right where I was! Fancy that...

When I first saw them they were in V's but by the time I pulled over so I could count them, they were kettling.

We'll see if more come through this week. I'm thinking the cold weather up north might encourage them to pack their bags and head south for the winter.

Hi All,

Currently looking at the adult Western Kingbird found yesterday by Allan
Muise at the Panola Mountain grass restoration site. It’s a fair walk or
bike ride in on the path from either parking lot, in the large fields under
the power lines. Photos will be in the ebird report.

Good birding,

About 9am the sky was filled with thousands of birds, coming in wave on top of wave. They flew in from the ENE & heading SW (as far as I could tell).

I heard very strange sounds outside on this gorgeous sunny day. Went
outside to see 2 lovely Red Tailed Hawks circling above our pasture and
pond and calling to each other. There was the usual KEEEEWEEEE that i hear
when hawks are calling to each other, THEN delightful chirpy calls between
the two. Never heard that before.

Is this too early for courting calls between hawks?

Subject: [GABO-L] Winter birds
Small flock of FOS juncos are here this morning, along with FOS white
throated sparrow. The birds are very busy at and around the feeders this
morning. Towhees, morning doves, cardinals, bluejays, titmice, chickadees,
red bellied woodpecker, white breasted nuthatches and a couple of
goldfinches. Guess I need to stock up.

Subject: [GABO-L] Big Day Cherokee
Hi All,
Paul Hutto and I had a good day birding Cherokee County today. We tried to get as many species as we could, but we missed several species: House Sparrow, Rock Pigeon (we didn't frequent Home Depot or I-575), Pileated Woodpecker (no explanations), and Bald Eagle. Our highlights were a Virginia Rail and Sedge Wren at J.J. Biello Park and a Merlin in the Salacoa Valley. Overall, we totaled 71 species. Birds of special interest are listed below:

Virginia Rail (J.J. Biello Park)
Sedge Wren (J.J. Biello Park)
Rusty Blackbirds (J.J. Biello Park)
Purple Finches (J.J. Biello Park)
Red-breasted Nuthatch (J.J. Biello Park)
Blue-headed Vireo (J.J. Biello Park)
Pine Siskin (Badger Creek Park)
Vesper Sparrows (Badger Creek Park and Salacoa Valley)
Savannah Sparrows (Salacoa Valley)
Northern Shoveler (Fields Landing Park, Sweetwater Creek Campground)
Merlin (Salacoa Valley)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Subject: [GABO-L] Time to register for Camp TALON 2019
Young Birders and Their Parents:

The registration form for next year's Camp TALON (Teen Adventures Learning Ornithology and Nature) is now available at http://www.georgiawildlife.com/CampTALON. The camp is a six-day (June 1-6) event for young people ages 14-19 (older teens may be eligible) who are interested in birds and nature. Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, TERN, the Georgia Ornithological Society, and the Atlanta Audubon Society, the camp is based at Epworth by the Sea on St. Simons Island. We'll be birding many of Georgia's coastal "greatest hits" including Altamaha WMA, Harris Neck NWR, Little St. Simons Island, Ft. Stewart, Okefenokee NWR, Sapelo Island, Cumberland Island, and St. Simons Island. Teachers for the camp all have 20+ years of experience as professional biologists, ornithologists, and teachers working for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, GOS, The Nature Conservancy, and Little St. Simons Island.

Besides becoming a better birder, camp participants will learn about bird migration, conservation, census techniques, habitat needs, flight, journaling, song identification, and more. Students do not need to be experienced birders; they just need to be serious about birds and the outdoors. If you live inland and are wondering how you'll be able to bring your son or daughter to the coast for the camp - don't worry. A bus will pick up inland camp participants in Macon, will take them to the camp, and will return them to Macon in the late afternoon on the last day of each camp.

The camp will only cost $400 for early registration (before April 6th), which includes meals, lodging, and transportation from Macon. Late registration (April 6 - May 3) will cost $450.

If you have questions, please contact Julie Duncan at <Jdwildlife15...> or Bob Sargent at <bob.sargent...>

Yesterday and today we have had a Red-breasted Nuthatch regularly visiting
our feeder along with a male and female purple finch.  The RBNU was a new
yard bird and the furthest point south that I can recall ever observing the
species.  As is the case with our Brown-headed Nuthatches, the RBNU has been
very gregarious coming to the feeder when I'm only 10 feet away.

Subject: [GABO-L] Amerivan robins' arrival, pileated woodpecker & crow harassing a vulture - Bartow
I don't usually get up and bird watch at 6:30am but I'm glad I did this morning. I got to see well over 100 birds which I'm sure were at least mostly, American robins fly over. They flew in several medium sized flocks from the east & heading west. Most did not stop but enough did for me to count 20 robins. There may have been other species but I didn't see any sign of grackles or starlings.

After they flew out of sight a pileated woodpecker flew below tree level right in front of me. Still too dark to sex it.

And a new one on me, 2 turkey vultures were cruising by and one was being harassed by a crow.

There is a sizable group of hooded mergansers on Candler Lake at Lullwater

hanging out on the west end of the lake where the mallards always are, but
I imagine they might be found anywhere on the lake. I walk through the

Subject: [GABO-L] LeConte’s Sparrow Seen in Fulton County
This morning, while birding the open area next to the Solis Hotel, I was very surprised to find a LeConte’s Sparrow feeding in a wet grassy area.
The LeConte’s Sparrow would perch a few times in the small trees then drop back down to the ground.
It’s only my second LeConte’s Sparrow for Georgia.
My first LeConte’s Sparrow was seen in Greene County in 1990 with Jeff Sewell and Paul Raney.

Subject: [GABO-L] double-crested cormorants & a few more - Bartow Co
Yesterday I had a couple of hours & with the glorious blue skies I headed over to Taff & Brandon Farm Rds. There really weren't many birds considering all the flooding. Even the starlings & cowbirds were widely dispersed.

big pond Taff Rd
2 double-crested cormorants (perched on nearly submerged fence posts)
24 American coots

middle pond Taff Rd
1 male ring-necked duck
1 male Northern shoveler
1 unknown duck small with short bill & small white patch behind eye (will post bad photo for ID)

1 American kestrel seen on both roads
2 meadowlarks more heard

We had our first Pine Siskins and Purple Finch yesterday at our back yard feeders. I counted 9 Siskins, and there was a single female Purple Finch with them. I still have a Red-breasted Nuthatch coming to the feeders as well. Overall it was a really birdy day at our feeders with 17 species and good activity throughout the day. Fun stuff!

Subject: [GABO-L] Ducks, Grebes, and Loons - Morganton Point - Fannin County 11-16-2018
I received a call from Suzanne Zuckerman this afternoon to say
she was looking at quite a few ducks, grebes, and loons but
needed a scope. So I joined her at Morganton Point on Lake
Blue Ridge to see the first arrivals of the season. Her entire
list with photos is posted on eBird. My list is as follows:
19 Canada Geese
7 Blue-winged Teal
10 Mallards
5 Redheads
15 Ring-necked ducks
50+ Lesser Scaup
7 Buffleheads
5 Ruddy Ducks
Suzanne had red breasted mergansers and there were
duck sp.
There were also horned as well as many pied-billed grebes.
And three ring-billed gulls.
I observed two common loons. When a boat went through
the assorted flock everything flew but the loons who
remained in place and floated side by side. I noticed that the
darker areas on one loon were black but the darker areas on
the second loon were decidedly brown.

Tom Striker is leading a trip beginning at the Lake Blue Ridge
Marina in the morning. It is hoped these birds will remain and
perhaps be joined by more.

Hello Everyone,
There are some sneaky sandhill cranes starting to trickle through. Two days ago I heard some in the middle of the night (14th). Today I heard "warbling" as they flew way behind the house. Checking eBird, I see there was a tiny bit of movement and observations of sandhill cranes up in Nashville and Chattanooga, TN.

They are still mostly bunched up just south of the Great Lakes but they are starting to trickle down. Hip Hip Hooray....

I made a brief stop at Lake Acworth today at lunch to see if the recent cold
fronts moving through our area brought anything along with it. I had a nice
raft of ducks on the lake, which included 28 Redhead, 59 Lesser Scaup and
two Horned Grebes.

One merlin this morning, probably female or juvie, working the high
