Subject: [GABO-L] bird bath question
Does anyone have advice on buying a bird bath? I would like to know where
I can find an inexpensive or second-hand one. We have leveled off a big
stump in the front yard and I want to put one there.

Thanks

Hi Everyone. Kathy Miller and I were excited to see Dan and Bill’s report of the SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER on Lucas Road in Bartow County, so this morning we drove to the spot and after some long searching, finally saw TWO of them flying in and about the lone tall pine tree at the top of the hill about ½ mile from Hwy 113. I believe this is the same tree they used or attempted to use last year. Woohoo!!

Subject: [GABO-L] ORAS Bird Walks this Weekend - Athens-Clarke County
*Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 8:00am*



The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk at the Sandy
Creek Park. This walk will also be our Cook's Trail clean up, so please
bring a bag to help haul away any litter we find. We will bird from the
Cook's Trail trailhead to the Oxbow lake, approximately 2.1 miles, then
recover any litter on the way back.

We will be meeting at the last parking lot on campsite drive across the dam
and bird the lake from the dam first then proceed down the north end of
Cook's Trail.

Folks showing up for the walk do not have to pay the entrance fee; however,
if people stay and enjoy the park after the walk, they are asked to pay.

Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours. Easy
to moderate walking. Please dress for the weather, wear practical shoes,
bring insect repellent and snacks/water as desired. Participants can turn
around an leave early if needed.

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at
<fieldtrip...> or 706-296-5275.

*Sunday, April 30, 2017 - 8:00am*



The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society, in conjunction with the Athens-Clarke
County Landfill, will be hosting a Sunday birdwalk at the landfill. The
landfill is a relatively new rotation in our schedule. We will be meeting
about a quarter mile inside the gate off of Lexington Road.

*Please make sure to arrive on time, as the folks at the landfill may need
to lock the gate behind us.*

Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours though
birders may leave at their convenience. Easy to moderate walking. Please
dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and
snacks/water as desired.

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at
<fieldtrip...> or 706-296-5275.

For more information about the Athens Landfill click here.
<http://athensclarkecounty.com/index.aspx?NID=1309>

IMPORTANT NOTE: On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad
weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original
meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure
or parking problem). If you plan to attend a birdwalk, ALWAYS check
www.oconeeriversaudubon.org the night before for updates.

Subject: [GABO-L] Ivy Log Gap Road
Just an FYI that Ivy Log Gap Road is currently impassable. At the 4 mile mark from the start of Ivy Log (FS100) on the Union County end, there is a large oak tree across the road. No idea when the Forest Service will be able to remove it. Just before that point the road has some very large mud holes spanning the width of road road. They are expecting more rain on Thursday.
Also, turkey season is open until May 15th and this area is very popular. Probably can't count any WITU you hear up there until after that. The old timer today was doing a great hen call.

Besides that the birding was great.

Subject: [GABO-L] Kirtland's Warbler Blitz
Forwarded emailed from Cornell follows:

Thanks so much for your willingness to help survey for migrant
Kirtland's Warblers this spring. The Kirtland's Warbler Migration
Blitz 2017 begins in Georgia on Friday, April 21st and continues for
about a month as most of the world's population passes through the
state.

Details on how to participate are on the blitz webpage here:
http://ebird.org/content/ebird/kirtlands/. This page has been revised
slightly over the past couple weeks, so might be worth reviewing.

The protocol details how to conduct the surveys, and it is
downloadable at the above link (and on the Google Drive link below).

The audio file is in the below Google Drive folder. It includes the
Kirtland's Warbler song and scold tape audio segments described in the
protocol. Please load this on your phone for conducting the survey.

Both the protocol and audio file can also be accessed via Google Drive
at this link:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8lAG4onXAfKMjRHbkpWQ0YtYzg

If you have any issues downloading the audio file, email us and we'll
send it directly as an email attachment.

We do recommend getting a speaker that can amplify the audio track,
for example: http://amzn.to/2opbBL2

That page has been revised with a link to the Google Map that shows
all the survey points. Here's that map link: http://bit.ly/2o7U6Od

Starting tomorrow, these points will appear as hotspots in eBird
(including eBird Mobile) which will allow you to navigate to the
points via eBird Mobile. Please do review this map to see where points
near you may be and to plan what points you might cover. If you have
friends who are taking part, we certainly want birders to cover
different points if possible, but duplication of effort at a given
point is not a problem. If only a few points are near you, surveying
them repeatedly over the survey period is fine. And remember, you can
always make your own points as well!

One final note is that these survey points were selected using GIS
information on habitat and public lands. While we believe this process
did a good job identifying the habitat that we want to survey, the
access depends upon the layer that defines the public lands being
correct. We CANNOT guarantee that some points are not falling on
private land, so please use common sense when visiting the points. If
there are "No Trespassing signs" or the land seems obviously private,
or if access is impossible, then please let us know by emailing
<kirtlands.survey...> and letting us know the name of the point
and the issue with access. If you can get reasonably close to the
point (within 200m or so), please conduct the point from the nearest
access that is possible and send us the coordinates (decimal lat-long
preferred) or a description of the site. You can either create an
alternate survey point (as described in the protocol) or just proceed
to the next point on your route.

We'll be watching this email <kirtlands.survey...> for
questions as well and we'll follow up with a few other messages over
the course of the survey.

Thanks again for participating. We'll be watching for your data and
very much hoping you succeed with a Kirtland’s.

Good luck!

Best,

Marshall Iliff and Viviana Ruiz-Guitierrez

If you are going to the GOS Spring Meeting at Unicoi, bring your
unwanted books and birding gear. We will be collecting bird related
items like field guides, binoculars, scopes, tripods, backpacks and
other items. We will be dividing up the donation between the Friends
of the Savannah NWR, and Birder's Exchange (items delivered to the
tropics to encourage bird conservation and enjoyment). You can also
bring bird-related books that are not field guides but maybe
nonfiction books about birds and birding. If you are not going to

We had nice AAS walk at Kennesaw on Saturday with around 43 participants.
The weather was great (too great!) . The migrants were a bit scarce but we
did manage nice views at tanagers, grosbeak and oriole, along with a few
warblers.

Hopefully this front will result in more migrants next weekend! Thanks to

Subject: [GABO-L] Trip report: Morgan Falls Overlook Park (Fulton County), 4/22
Hello GABO,

14 birders joined me yesterday for a beautiful morning at Morgan Falls Overlook Park & Dam.

This park is not usually good for warblers, and we only had Pine, Palm, and Yellow-Rumped.

Highlights: Bald Eagle, Osprey, a cooperative Summer Tanager in the scope, a very busy pair of Red-Bellied Woodpecker parents dashing in and out of their nest hole, and a Great Blue Heron rookery tree with young.

Notes: if you are looking for eagles, they are usually spotted circling over the hill that is between the park and dam. I have also spotted one perched in a tree on the same hill (viewed from the road while standing next to the power station).

The Great Blue Heron rookery has moved, although old nests are still visible in the pines on the same hill mentioned above. The new nest tree is a large pine downriver from the boat launch below the dam. The tree is at the edge of the river on the opposite bank.

Happy spring, everyone!

Subject: [GABO-L] Rockdale Co. Birding Report - Marsh Wren, Warblers, and Shorebirds
Hey Everyone,

I spent the morning checking out the Big Haynes Nature Trail and
Panola Mountain State Park this morning to see what migrants are
passing through and who might be here for the summer.

At Big Haynes, the highlight bird was a singing marsh wren at the far
end of the marsh, where the floating dock starts. The reason I had
been standing in that area long enough to hear the wren start singing
was because I was stalking a singing northern parula and a northern
waterthrush. My personal highlight was finding a probable prothonotary
warbler nest site. I watched a female carrying nesting material
disappear into a tree cavity. I also got a great look at a green heron
flying for the first time, before that I've only ever seen them
skulking around or perched.

I also birded the Alexander lakes area of Panola mountain. Upper
Alexander Lake is very low right now and there is a lot of good
mudflat exposed right now. There weren't too many shorebirds, but
quite a few that I don't think would be seen at Panola Mt otherwise.
Least, pectoral, and spotted sandpipers were present as well as 4
semipalmated plovers. There wasn't much going on with warblers, but I
did get some great looks at a few yellow-breasted chat.

Subject: [GABO-L] Red headed woodpecker Pickens County
This morning at 9:30 I heard and saw a red headed woodpecker. This is the
first time in probably 10 years that I have seen one in our "neighborhood,"
off Upper Bethany Rd in south Pickens Co. I first heard the call from an
oak tree in a pasture field. Then the bird flew across the road and landed
on a pole in that field about 50 yards off the road, continuing to call. He
made a circle around the pole and flew off into the woods at the edge of
the field. Right place at the right time, considering how uncommon they are
around here now.

They're back on the gorge wall and have 4 chicks!! Visible from Overlook 9 on the South Rim Trail. Park in the Day Use Area off Hwy 441/23 ($5 per car) and follow the signs to South Rim Trail.

According to rangers, they hatched about a week ago. Four chicks will be a challenge for the parents with food and keeping them shaded from the strong sun. We watched the male deliver food once and go hunting several times. The mother kept the chicks under her protective wings while the hot sun shone down on them.. Our eBird list below has the approx GPS location for Overlook 9.

Subject: [GABO-L] waterthrush in northern Gwinnett County
A beaver has set up housekeeping along the stretch of the Little Mulberry
River that runs behind our house; and as a result much of the floodplain is
under a few inches to a few feet of water. I'm down there at least once a
week and have been interested to see what species move into this new
wetland. Yesterday I could hear Wood Ducks whistling in the distance, and a
few hours later a waterthrush appeared at the water's edge. I didn't have
binoculars so I wasn't sure about the finer characteristics, e.g., eyebrow
stripe, degree of streaking on the belly, etc.; but the shape was right for
a waterthrush, along with the short tail and telltale bobbing. It foraged
for a minute or so and then flew into one of the trees.



As the water is still for the most part my guess would be Northern
Waterthrush based upon the habitat, but it is right next to a river so I
suppose a Louisiana is possible as well. Any thoughts/tips out there on
which it is likely to be, or is there any way to tell from a distance next
time?

Finally. This is the first one I've seen at the park since I started birding there in 1998. Every year I would ask myself will this be the year i see one there. I always thought I would see one but I didn't think it would take 20 years. That gives me 212 species for the park.
I saw it around 10 AM just past the gate that leads to the firing range. It was extremely active flying back-and-forth across the road.

Subject: [GABO-L] ORAS Field Trips This Weekend
*Saturday, April 22, 2017 - 6:00am*

The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be taking a field trip to Kennesaw
Mountain. We will likely join up with an Atlanta Audubon trip going on
there at the same time.

We will meet at the Shops of South Athens Shopping Center (behind the
Waffle House) on South Milledge near the bypass ready to leave at
6:00AM. *This
means you will want to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before 6:00AM.* We
will car pool in as few cars as we can manage. Katy Manley will be on hand
to coordinate the trip.

ORAS field trip and bird walks are open to the public and to birders of all
ages and experience levels. You will want to bring binoculars, water,
insect repellent and snacks if you so desire. You are encouraged to wear
practical shoes and dress for the weather. While the walk consists of
hiking up the road to the summit of the mountain and back down again, the
pace is leisurely and not particularly strenuous.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Ed Maioriello at
fieldtrip AT oconeeriversaudubon.org or at 706-296-5275.

For more information about Kennesaw Mountain click here.
<http://www.atlantaaudubon.org/aaswww/indexsupport/sites.htm#kmt>

*Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 8:00am*


The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk at the State
Botanical Garden. We will be meeting in the Day Chapel parking lot. From
the main entrance just keep bearing left to find the Day Chapel lot.
Richard Hall will be leading this walk!

Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours though
birders may leave at their convenience. Easy to moderate walking. Please
dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and
snacks/water as desired.

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at
<fieldtrip...> or 706-296-5275.

For information about the State Botanical Garden click here.
<http://botgarden.uga.edu/>

IMPORTANT NOTE: On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad
weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original
meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure
or parking problem). If you plan to attend a birdwalk, ALWAYS check
www.oconeeriversaudubon.org the night before for updates.

Hi GA birders, I'd like to make a trip to the coast soon for some

in eBird, it looks like the likelihood of seeing one in GA is the same from

Subject: [GABO-L] Suspected w__w___ dove Burke County
Yesterday afternoon running errands around Waynesboro, I observed a dove
with an outspread white-banded tail. I particularly observed the tail since
that is a distinct feature to identify doves. It flew up from the side of
the road into trees/shrubbery. The tail was on the more rounded than
pointed spectrum. We have mourning doves and Eurasian collared doves
frequently at our feeders; this bird was neither. I couldn't stop at the
time but hope to go back to the area to see if it's still around. Looking
at Sibley 2003, my best guess is that it was a wh___-w____ dove. I'll
definitely be on the look out and ask my birding friends in town carefully
to check out doves they notice.

Subject: [GABO-L] Bird monitors needed for Atlanta Audubon - Auburn University study
Georgia Birders,
Atlanta Audubon is working with researchers at Auburn University on a
West Nile virus study within Metro Atlanta. They are interested in looking
at the dilution effect in regards to avian diversity within Atlanta.
Basically, the dilution effect is the idea that increased biodiversity is
protective against infection with zoonotic pathogens. Our role in this
partnership will be to carry out bird surveys, likely point counts. This
will probably occur in late May or June though details and methodology are
still being worked out.
If you have an interest in volunteering then please send me an email.
You need to be able to identify the birds of Atlanta by sight and sound.
The time commitment for this should minimal, likely involving a morning or
two of counts. This email address is fine though I would prefer you contact
me at <adam...>

Thank you.

Good birding!

Subject: [GABO-L] Wood ducks Floyd Co
Checked wood Duck boxes today. Only one box active right now although
I have been seeing two pair at the pond. Guess one pair is the one that a
Raccoon destroyed the nest and eggs several weeks ago. Box #1 had 12 eggs today and she is setting.Hatch off should be second week in May
If all goes well. Checked bird boxes and have 3 bluebird boxes with eggs,
5 baby nuthatches, one box with 7 white with brown speck eggs but haven't seen adult bird- possible titmouse or chickadee maybe and one mockingbird nest with 3 eggs so far! Three hummingbirds.

SPRING IS HERE!!

Subject: [GABO-L] Hidden Pond not accessible Stone Mountain
Hi all,
FYI. You can't get into the Hidden Pond area at Stone Mountain. The
little road is closed. They seem to be re-vamping the baseball/sports
field.

I don't know if you can still walk in. I did, but there was no one around
and I had to park my car on the verge (I couldn't back up as it is one way).

I didn't see anything special, though a pair of Belted Kingfishers were
chasing each other. There was also a Spotted Sandpiper at the dam.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [GABO-L] Birdy day at the Bot Gardens (Athens, Clarke County)
Decided to do some last-minute Easter birding today. Around late morning we headed to the UGA State Botanical Garden in Clarke County, where we walked the White Trail from the parking lot, through the power line cut, down to the river, and back up to the Native Flora Gardens. We watched an adult RED-SHOULDERED HAWK grab a meal and carry it off. It started calling and another RSHA joined it (presumably its mate). Saw a RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD and a male COMMON YELLOWTHROAT along the river. Many WHITE-EYED VIREOS were singing, as well as RED-EYED VIREOS and BLUE-GREY GNATCATCHERS. A highlight was a SPOTTED SANDPIPER foraging along the river. My birding partner was also ecstatic to see his lifer BROWN-HEADED NUTHATCH in the power line cut. A pair of EASTERN BLUEBIRDS is nesting in the box in the PLC, as well.


We heard a couple warblers singing back and forth in trees near the river, but we never got a visual. They were one of the "pleased, pleased to meet you!" species...I'm thinking AMERICAN REDSTART, but could be HOODED or something else entirely.


Non-avian sightings: lots of dragonflies, a toad in a stump, a green anole, a couple of five-lined skinks, a chipmunk, and squirrels.


Happy birding,

Subject: [GABO-L] Camp TALON for Young Birders - Register Soon
Young Birders and Their Parents:

There are only three slots left in Camp TALON #1 (June 3-8, 2017). The deadline is May 5th. Register your teenager soon! The second camp (June 17-22) has been cancelled.

The registration form for Camp TALON (Teen Adventures Learning Ornithology and Nature) is available at http://www.georgiawildlife.com/CampTALON. This is a six-day event for young people ages 13-17 (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, the Atlanta Audubon Society, and the GA Natural Resources Foundation, this camp is based at Epworth by the Sea on St. Simons Island. We'll be birding many of Georgia's coastal "greatest hits" including Altama WMA, Harris Neck NWR, Ft. Stewart, Okefenokee NWR, Sapelo Island, Andrews Island, Altamaha WMA, St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. Visit the website to see the itinerary. Teachers for the camps 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, the Department of Defense, or for two of Georgia's universities.

Besides becoming a better birder, camp participants will learn about bird migration, conservation, census techniques, photography, 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 costs $500, which includes meals, lodging, and transportation from Macon. Previous campers who are older than 17 may be eligible to attend as an intern.

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

Subject: [GABO-L] ORAS Bird Walk Saturday at Whitehall Forest - Athens-Clarke County
Saturday, April 15, 2017 - 8:00am

The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk at Whitehall
Forest Saturday at 8:00AM. This is a special treat as Whitehall is not
usually available to the public, and is a fantastic location for birding in
the Athens-Clarke County area. Together with the other adjacent UGA
properties including the State Botanical Garden, Whitehall Forest is a
Georgia Important Bird Area (IBA).

We will meet along the side of the entrance road just inside the gate.
Once we have all assembled we will caravan down to the parking area at
Flinchum's Phoenix. *After the gate is closed you will not be able to get
in so please don't be late. * The gate will automatically open from the
inside so birders may leave any time they wish.

Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours though
birders may leave at their convenience. Easy to moderate walking. Please
dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and
snacks/water as desired.

Again, *a*
*fter the gate is closed you will not be able to get in so please don't be
late. *

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at
<fieldtrip...> or 706-296-5275.

For directions about the Whitehall Forest click here and follow the
directions to Flinchum's Phoenix.
<http://www.warnell.uga.edu/about/directions.php#flinchum>

IMPORTANT NOTE: On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad
weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original
meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure
or parking problem). If you plan to attend a bird walk, ALWAYS check
www.oconeeriversaudubon.org the night before for updates.

Subject: [GABO-L] Cohutta Birding- 13 Red-breasted Nuthatches
I spent most of Tuesday in the Cohutta foothills(Murray County) along West Cowpen Rd. from Old Hwy 2 and FS 630. This route is about 7.5 miles long. I made several stops along the way. I guess the biggest surprise was the RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES. I had 13 in all, including four spots where there were pairs. At one stop I observed two males making advances at a female. She clearly was following one male from tree to tree and when the second male approached her she gave him the cold flank and flew off! 2016 was an irruption year so I'm assuming these are making their way back north, but I'll check back at these sites later in the season to see if any lingered. At the end of the route I had a single RED CROSSBILL fly over. Six First-of-the-year(FOTY) birds. Butterflies, only about ten species, but 2-3 Dreamy Duskywings. I found an area where there over 100 Bashful Wakerobins, most in bloom. I also observed a few Marsh Darners ovipositing eggs in a log. See: https://www.facebook.com/northgeorgianaturalist/

Below is the bird list from the day with highlights listed first:

Broad-winged Hawk - 3
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER
RED-EYED VIREO - FOTY, at least 10
RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH - 13

Subject: [GABO-L] Oakland Cemetery Bird Walk 4/8/17
Rob McDonough and I co-led a group of 12 birders on the second bird walk of
the season through Oakland Cemetery on Saturday morning. Oakland Cemetery
is a 48-acre park-like property with a rich and diverse mix of flowering
plants, shrubs and trees that attract insects and birds. The weather
conditions were great compared to the very windy, cold and rainy days
preceding our walk. It was calm, mild and sunny. We saw and heard the
usual year-round and winter residents but most of the spring migrants that
will start showing up at this location soon hadn't arrived yet. We saw and
heard a respectable 35 species total and got nice views of several
frolicking Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and heard two singing Northern Parula.
Participants also learned about some of the historical aspects of Oakland
Cemetery, including, "Tweet the Mockingbird," a family's pet Northern
Mockingbird that was buried at Oakland Cemetery in the family's plot in
1874. The bird's grave is marked with a small carved lamb because the
stonecutter couldn't replicate a mockingbird.

The bird species identified during Saturday's walk are listed below.

Downy Woodpecker 2
Eastern Phoebe 1
Blue Jay 7
American Crow 1
Fish Crow 1
Northern Rough-winged Swallow 2
Carolina Chickadee 1
Carolina Wren 2
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 4
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Eastern Bluebird 1
American Robin 12
Brown Thrasher 5

Eastern Towhee 7

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Nuthatch ID
Hi Ginny,

The number of repetitions and even the speed (tempo) are not necessarily
critical in identifying nuthatch voices.....the number and spacing of reps
can vary a lot. What is more important is the tonal quality,i.e. the
characteristics of the sound itself -- what we musicians call the timbre
(pronounced 'tam-ber'). If the sounds you heard sounded like the ones on
the app, and not like the white-breasteds you've heard before, it seems
likely you were hearing a red-breasted! You might want to listen to some
other recordings of the species on youtube to be more sure.

Good birding,
James Gibson

I have only ever seen one Red-brea$ted Nuthatch in my life, never heard one before. But I think there's one at Pinelog WMA. All I could think at 1st was that it did not sound like the yank of a white-breasted, but whiny, like waah. I listened to it on my Sibley app and it sounded the same but fewer repetitions & not as rapid.

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Audubon's Warbler at Harris Neck
Hey Patty,

Hope you all are fine.

Ironically, there was an AUDUBON'S WARBLER reported for Harris Neck NWR
(MCINTOSH) on 11/24/1999 (see Oriole 62:21). Maybe yours is a descendant of
that one!!

I notice that Brunswick (GLYNN) had one too on 2/17/1936 for another
coastal record.

FYI, I happened to that same species a few years ago at my birdbath here in
Waycross (WARE). Right now, don't recall the date. Anyway, I had seen them
regularly when I worked out west in the Rockies for several summer seasons
now a good while back. It sure was a surprise to see one turn up at my
home!!

Take care.

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Audubon's Warbler at Harris Neck


Hi again and thanks for all the replies. No one has mentioned the possibility of an intergrade which can show a yellow throat, a white supercilium and a darker face patch. I think it's an interesting puzzle and something worth learning about. Myrtle is clearly the most likely for GA but what's a birder to think if they see a butter-butt with a yellow throat?  While the yellow on this individual's throat was not bright, the bird was in the shade of the trees when we saw and photographed it. We'll look at the photos again on the computer and not so rushed and adjust the report from there. Thanks again.

Subject: [GABO-L] Advice on finding Whippoorwills & Chuck-wills
Hello!
I am a recent transplant to Atlanta area and was curious if others could
provide some recommendations on good spots to hear whip-poor-wills and/or
chuck-wills-widow? I saw a posting about some heard this week out at Cedar
Creek WMA. If you know of any spots closer to areas I frequent (Rockdale,
Gwinnett, Athens-Clarke), I would welcome the ideas. Of course, I will
still hold out hope of hearing one in the woods behind our home.

Also, is there a good time of evening to hear them? Such as right at dusk
or later in the evening?

Thanks and Happy Spring Birding!

Hello all,

After spotting the Ring-necked Ducks, Jamie and I ran into a warbler flock
in the trees on the northern shore of the Piedmont Park Lake between the
Active Oval and the bridge crossing the lake. In a flock of mostly
Yellow-rumped Warblers, there was an Orange-crowned Warbler and a singing
bird (only heard) that we could not ID satisfactorily. I recorded the song,
and have attached the recordings in the Dropbox link below. The song was a
bit buzzier than in the recording, which has been through a noise-reduction
program. I cannot decide between Cerule@n Warbler and Black-thro@ated Blue
Warbler, and of course it might be something else entirely.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/et0d37jzycw3ccl/AACkqwe-tNvWAIvGtShALLdqa?dl=0

Would appreciate it if someone could help ID what this bird might be. The
video can be played on the Dropbox website itself, or downloaded and played

Heard my lifer CHUCK-WILLS-WIDOW tonight!!! Singing from the very edge of the treeline near my field house on Cedar Creek WMA. I heard it from inside the house, so naturally I booked it outside.

Whip-poor-wills were singing as well, so Chuck stood out like a sore thumb.

There are two female Ring-Necked Ducks in the Piedmont Park Lake. Jamie

is near the public pool. Small possibility they were the same bird. I have

Subject: [GABO-L] Storm-driven warbler frenzy in Clayton Co.
Hello,

At about noon today, just as the heavy rain was pouring in from the
southeast, I encountered a group of frenzied warblers on the north & east
side of I-285 at Rt. 19/41. They were moving rapidly in the grove of trees
between the two exit ramps, mostly landing for a moment on a high branch,
then coming down somewhat lower, then zooming to another tree. There were
at least ten warblers in the group, perhaps more, of which I could identify
2 Blackpolls, 1 Cape May (both of those are a few days ahead of schedule),
two Yellow-rumps (Myrtle), and a possible Black-throated Green. The only
other birds amidst them were a few robins. This frenzy lasted for about ten
minutes, and then the rain drove them northeastward (and me to shelter).
Details will be reported to ebird.

Storm birding is great! You just never know what is going to pop up
unexpectedly.

Subject: [GABO-L] Camp TALON early registration ends Friday
The early registration discount ends this Friday. Register your teenager soon!

The registration forms for this year's two Camp TALON (Teen Adventures Learning Ornithology and Nature) are now available at http://www.georgiawildlife.com/CampTALON. Each Camp TALON is a six-day (June 3-8 and June 17-22) event for young people ages 13-17 (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, these camps are based at Epworth by the Sea on St. Simons Island. We'll be birding many of Georgia's coastal "greatest hits" including Altama WMA, Harris Neck NWR, Little St. Simons Island, Ft. Stewart, Okefenokee NWR, Sapelo Island, Andrews Island, Altamaha WMA, Richmond Hill WTF, St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. Visit the website to see the itineraries for each camp. Teachers for the camps 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, photography, 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 camps will only cost $425 for early registration (before April 8th), which includes meals, lodging, and transportation from Macon. Late registration (April 8 - May 5) will cost $500. Previous campers who are older than 17 may be eligible to attend as an intern.

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

Subject: [GABO-L] Chucks and other yard birds 04/02/17
This is the time of year when I keep my windows open at night. Actually I
probably won't close them until October. I am always listening for those
nightjars and owls. Last night I had my first of the year CHUCK-WILLS-WIDOW
singing in the distance. Actually two. This morning a BARRED OWL was acting
crazy.

Yesterday (04/02/17) while in my front yard I heard an OSPREY. I jogged up
to a higher spot to get a better view and saw a BALD EAGLE chasing the
Osprey for several minutes about 100 yards away where there is a small
lake. I didn't have my binoculars (which rarely happens) so I couldn't see
what the Osprey had that the eagle so desperately wanted to steal. A pretty
awesome yard bird experience.

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Wilson's Phalarope, Clayton County Water Authority--E.L. Huie Ponds, Apr 2, 2017
Hi, I am somewhat hesitant to respond in detail, since I did not see the
bird in the field. I only saw the photos, which unfortunately I did not
save to my computer...and it appears they have now been removed from the
ebird report, so I can't look at them again. I will tell you what I
remember...

At first glance, I did actually think the bird might be a lesser yellwlegs.
But as soon as I began studying the photos, my opinion changed. I did not
notice an eye ring. What I did notice was a lot of white at the base of the
bill and above (around?) the eye. The pattern of plumage in the upperparts,
the posture of the body and the general color (which appeared much more
grey to me than brown) suggested it was a phalarope.

I have seen many of both species in the field in various places & seasons.
One thing I can tell you is that they can be difficult to separate. To help
refresh my memory, I looked at dozens of photos of each species this
evening (by the way, the media page on ebird.org is a wonderful resource
but, like most of what is on the internet, it is not perfect...I noticed
several photos of lesser yellowlegs on the Wilson's phal. page, and several
Greaters on the Lesser yllwlegs page, etc.).

Anyway, one comment about the bill: sometimes if a Wilson's is holding its
head down and if you look at the face straight on from directly in front of
the bird, the base of the bill and the shape of the bill can look more like
a yellowleg's than a phalarope's. I have been fooled by this more than once
in the field.

What I think may be important with this particular bird is that it appears
to be somewhere in the transition between winter and breeding plumage. This
means that things like color of individual feathers, plumage patterns, and
facial color may not be typical or purely definitive. On the Huie bird, I
saw a trace of barring on either the sides of the tail or the primaries (I
couldn't tell which), and on the flanks. The flanks barring occurs often on
the phalarope; the barring near the tail would suggest a yellowlegs. But
since I could not see this in great detail in the photos, and since the
bird is probably in transition plumage, this is not conclusive either.

I generally think of yellowlegs as having a more intricate pattern of
barring, scallopping, etc in the plumage than phalaropes. It seemed to me
that the bird in the photos had a much more uniform plumage pattern than
what I'd expect from a yellowlegs.

When in doubt I always ask myself about the jizz, the gestalt, the way I
*feel* about a bird. Posing that question after looking at the three photos
of the Huie bird, and many photos of other birds, left me tending toward
phalarope as the ID. There was something about the overall color, the
posture, the plumage pattern and the facial markings that did *not* suggest
yellowlegs to me.

So I defer to those who actually saw the bird, and hope that I will be able
to see it or to see more photos.....

Good birding!

I finally checked 5 of my 6 wood Duck boxes today. Box #1 had 5 eggs!
Box #4 had had eggs but the nest and eggs destroyed apparently by a raccoon! This box is a new one that is high and next to the pond's dam. There were at least 3 egg shells in the water along with the down and nesting fluff!
The other boxes had no eggs and I didn't get a chance to check the box on the pine tree! The ducks got off to a late start and looks like a rocky season!!

The Wilson's Phalarope appears to be a Lesser Yellowlegs. The bird doesn't show the thin needle like bill, and the marking appear wrong on the back. The eye ring is apparent in the photos, Wilsons does not have an eye ring. I ask for someone to explain what makes this a Phalarope and not a Lesser Yellowlegs?

Nice!! I have seen a number of phalaropes that were pretty dark on the
back, especially in transitional plumage (which I think this bird probably
is). Plus, the coverts (especially primary coverts) tend to be dark, so if

The EARED GREBE continues this morning at Lake Lanier, seen feeding inside the calm cove on the south (right) side of the entrance just before the check-in station at West Bank Park. Also, two REDHEADED WOODPECKERS were seen foraging in this same general area.

Subject: [GABO-L] Shirley Miller Wildflower Trail (Walker Co., GA)
Hello all,

A few friends and I made our annual spring trip today to the Shirley Miller
Wildflower Trail at Pigeon Mountain in NW Georgia. The place is
better-known for wildflowers and invertebrates than birds, but today we
were greeted at the entrance by two Broad-winged Hawks circling over the
mountain, calling repeatedly. They stayed around for most of our walk, and
at one point we think the male attempted to copulate with the perched
female. We also heard three vireo species (red-eyed, yellow-throated and
white-eyed), Louisiana Waterthrush and a single Black-Throated Green
Warbler. Yellow-rumped Warblers and Ruby-Crowned Kinglets are singing now.
In the cultivated/fallow areas around the mountain we saw Eastern
Meadowlarks, Barn Swallows and a possible Purple Martin. Field Sparrows
were heard as well.

The wildflowers at this location were spectacular, as always. Interesting
sights elsewhere on this mountain include Ellison's Blue Hole, the flooded
entrance to a cave system; Rock Town, an assortment of fantastical rock
formations on top of the mountain; and an endemic salamander species.

Thanks,
Vinod Babu

Subject: [GABO-L] Blackpoll Warbler - Fort Mountain
Theresa and I went hiking at Fort Mountain State Park in Murray County today. The forest was alive with song. We heard lots of BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLERS, YELLOW-THROATED WARBLERS AND BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLERS. Along Tower Rd. I heard one lone RED CROSSBILL calling as it flew over, which was nice.

There was a male and female RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH present near the rock wall along the Tower Trail. These two acted like a pair, but we didn't observe any activity that would absolutely confirm breeding. I had a pair here in 2013 which I suspected might be breeding that gave me the slip in late April of that year. I plan to check on these in a few weeks.

The bird of the day was a singing BLACKPOLL WARBLER that was heard along Tower Rd. The unmistakable high-pitched "tsit" series of notes surprised me this early in the month. This isn't the earliest record for the state, but most likely is for the mountain region. Typically Blackpolls don't show up for another 2-3 weeks on this end of the state. My earliest date was April 14, 2011 at Dobbins Mountain in Bartow County and that same year they were recorded at Kennesaw Mountain(Piedmont) by 4/16. The Annotated Checklist of GA has a printed date of April 17 for the mountain region. April 1st is listed as the early date for the Piedmont.

We also saw a Brown Elfin along the powerline swath on the southwestern portion of the park. As I was preparing to photograph it.......it took off.

Happy Spring,

Joshua Spence,
Murray County

Subject: [GABO-L] 10 Glossy Ibis @ Bradley Unit - 3/31 and other west-central notes this week
Hit the Eufaula NWR Bradley Unit today for the first time since the CBC...at the crack of 12:30p..the wind had already started to pick up...not a ton of FOTY stuff there today, but a solid outing anyway. As far as the expected stuff for early spring... Plenty of Little Blue Herons, Snow Egrets, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets were getting nests under way at the rookery on the main pond with the pump house... but not big numbers yet... I heard 3-4 King Rails sound off as well as a pair of Soras. No signs of Boat-tailed Grackles..hopefully later. There were a pair of male Ring-necked Ducks in this area as well. Most of the action however, was in the pond on the north side of the cross dike east of the silos. Waterfowl was represented by about 100 Blue-winged Teal, 1 fem Northern Shoveler, 1 fem American Wigeon, and 1 fem Hooded Merganser. Shorebirds included 30 Wilson's Snipe, 10 Pectoral Sandpipers, and 14 Least Sandpipers. There was a group of waders foraging in the NW corner of the pond including Great and Snowy Egrets, 4-5 White Ibis, and 10 Glossy Ibis. Recall that several Glossy's incredibly bred here last year. 2 of the birds today were courting, so it wouldn't surprise me if there's a repeat performance this year.


I then headed to WF George Dam in Clay Co. Below the dam was a single American White Pelican among about 100 Ring-billed Gulls.. nothing much above the dam in the lake.


Other stuff from the week in west-central GA included:


3/27 - Mason Jarrett and I had a foty Prothonotary Warbler and Swainson's Warbler at Oxbow Meadows in south Columbus, a new early date for the property for the latter. I had a single hen Wild Turkey there yesterday (rare there).


3/28 - I tried a crack at Dowdell's Knob on the Pine Mountain ridge.. Nothing much yet .. several Black-and-white Warblers and 1 Yellow-throated Vireo..that was it.. I then swung over to West Point Dam... a few Common Loons were the only thing noted.


3/30 - Marshallville- Tried all 3 farms around the town.. nada .. the farm on Juice Plant Rd has a drainage pond that had 1 snipe and a Tree Swallow.. not much else between them..


Green Heron (Mason) and Great Crested Flycatcher have shown up in Columbus this week as well..


C'mon spring...

Subject: [GABO-L] My Turkey viewing contribution - West Cobb County
Hello all,   Funny about all those city turkeys. But I agree, turkeys seem to adapt to traffic very well. Today, driving home on Due West Rd., just before the light at Due West/Burnt Hickory/Old Hamilton, there was a small traffic jam. At first I though tit was just a normal traffic backup, but when I got up there I could see the rear view of a turkey, disappearing into the brush.
   There is a small flock that continually moves from the east side of Due West Rd, through a wooded area and then crosses Old Hamilton Rd.  In the winter I usually see 3 males. In the spring it will be a group of 6 or 7 containing a mix of male/female turkey's. Haven't seen that size group yet this year. Later in the summer/fall I usually see a hen with young turkey's.
   There is also a flock I usually get a glimpse of in early March on Cheatam Hill when I take that road to the Fairgrounds to work at the Cobb County Library sale.
   Happy Turkey Hunting!

Subject: [GABO-L] Brown-headed Cowbird Invasion Grows in NE Atlanta
OMG. I just now have a flock of male and female Brown-headed Cowbirds flitting among my trees. Have been seeing a pair. I doubt there is a solution, but any suggestions for dealing with them will be appreciated. I have a lot of Brown-headed Nuthatches in my dead pine snag, but I cannot reach the nest cavities. Usually also have Wren, Titmouse, Chickadee, Bluebird, Cardinal, and Thrasher nests around my "Atlanta Audubon Sanctuary" yard, but I normally avoid deep searches for the nests to avoid disturbing "my" birds.

Subject: Re: [GABO-L] Wild Turkey in Fulton Co.
Hey folks,

Hope you are fine. These posts about the WILD TURKEYs in Atlanta & Boston,
etc. is very interesting!

A few years ago, here in Waycross (WARE) while mowing the yard of a friend
I found the carcass of a WILD TURKEY on the side of her yard & the street
(Riverside Dr.). It was next to a section of her yard which was a thick
garden of Camillas, etc. & near a canal which connects to the Satilla R. a
few miles away. However, this was a neighborhood & just a block behind
commercial businesses & USHwy#84 at Ava St./Riverside Dr. You would never
expect to see such a bird there at all! Although once I rescued a
Yellow-bellied Turtle that tried to cross that street from that canal in
the middle of traffic.

Additionally, my cousin said that before that she had see live WILD TURKEYs
going across a yard in another neighborhood (northeast of the Riverside Dr.
site) that was a little closer to the river & downstream from where that
same canal goes underneath USHwy#84 at a wooded section to eventually
connect to the Satilla R. That same canal goes behind my house too.

And my father who still lives where I grew up on Danora Dr. said he had
seen some WILD TURKEYs in his yard too in about the last 10
years. Although I grew up there when it was a Longleaf Pine forest in the
1950's & 1960's & still had NORTHERN BOBWHITEs, Gopher Tortoises, & E.
Diamondback Rattlesnakes besides a lovely Hooded Pitcher Plant bog, it
slowly became a regular neighborhood w/ lots of houses front & back & down
the street. But Daddy's house is still 2 houses away from its dead end at a
very dampish, woody area by another canal which also connects to the
Satilla R. that is much closer there.

So I guess these birds could have been coming from the Satilla River &
following the canals, going from wood lot to wood lot along those routes.

In this same vein, after I had moved to my current home on Pineview Dr. (w/
canal behind it parallel to USHwy#84), one day to my great surprise a
wounded White-tailed Deer came running through the yard. After it crossed
Pineview, it got stuck in the neighbor's backyard which was fenced so I
called the police. They wanted to shoot it but they couldn't as they didn't
want to take a chance of hitting a house. As it turned out, a neighbor's
son was a bow hunter & they let him kill the deer & keep the meat.

So, I guess you never know these days what will turn up in a city or
residential setting. Take care.

Every year, we have pictures posted on our neighborhood list-serv of
turkeys sitting on people's porch, in their yards, etc. And I am in
Ormewood Park, only about two miles from the state capitol. Obviously
turkeys are adapting to urban living!

Subject: [GABO-L] Bird Walk at Sandy Creek Park - Athens-Clarke County
Saturday, April 1, 2017 - 8:00am



The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk at 8am
at Sandy Creek Park. Birders of all levels are invited to attend. The
spring migrants are arriving so it should be a great walk! Folks showing
up for the walk do not have to pay the entrance fee; however, if people
stay and enjoy the park after the walk, they are asked to pay.

We will be meeting in the parking lot just to the left of entrance gate.
From there we will look for waterfowl on the lake, explore some of the
Lakeside Trail, and explore some of the open field habitat available at the
park.

Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours though
birders may leave at their convenience. Easy to moderate walking. Please
dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and
snacks/water as desired.

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at
<fieldtrip...> or 706-296-5275.

For information about Sandy Creek Park click here.
<http://athensclarkecounty.com/Facilities.aspx?page=detail&RID=17>

IMPORTANT NOTE: On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad
weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original
meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure
or parking problem). If you plan to attend a birdwalk, ALWAYS check
www.oconeeriversaudubon.org the night before for updates.

Heard my FOS northern parula singing today on Cedar Creek WMA.

I've been hearing blue-grey gnatcatchers singing the past few days, as well.

Chipping sparrows are becoming more vocal.

And I heard a couple red-headed woodpeckers calling back and forth, which was a nice surprise.

Happy birding,

Subject: [GABO-L] Huie Ponds, Clayton Co.
Hello,
The winter plumage American Golden Plover was seen throughout the morning
at Huie on the south pond, mostly along the southern edge between grass and
mud, and then in the southwest corner. The bird is well camouflaged against
the lighter shades of mud, so some searching is called for.

There were also 4 Western Sandpipers in the northeast pond. Other birds of
interest included Tree Swallows everywhere, one Barn swallow, lots of
Northern Shovelers, and a typical assortment of other ducks, cormorants,
bluebirds, and others.

Subject: [GABO-L] Am. Golden Plover, Clayton Co. (records)
For anyone interested, the Am. Golden Plover, observed yesterday at the Huie ponds of the CCWA, is the 7th record for that location, as far as I know. It's the 3rd in the Spring. Past Spring dates were 4/2/11 and 3/22/06, so I guess it's prime time now.
The bird could not be located this morning by several birders, although another birder may have seen it, but not sure. I wasn't there.Carol Carol LambertTucker, GA  (DeKalb Co.)<lambertsewell...>

Subject: [GABO-L] AAS Professional Development for educators
Good morning, Birding Friends,

I want to pass along information about Atlanta Audubon's professional
development workshop for educators: Connecting Students with STEM through
Birds. We have been funded for two trainings this summer; an informational
brochure and application for each program are attached. The trainings
begin with a four day workshop/retreat in the North Georgia mountains in
June, followed by one day trainings in the Greater Metro Atlanta area in
fall and spring. Please note there are some slight differences in the two
workshops. There is no cost to participants (in fact, one training offers a
stipend), and they receive lots of free classroom resources.

The first training, Taking Wing, supported by the Community Foundation of
West Georgia, will take place at Amicalola Falls from June 5-8 and is open
to both classroom teachers and informal educators. (Note: this workshop has
five guaranteed spaces for educators in Haralson, Heard, and Carroll, so
please share this information with anyone you know who may teach in those
counties).

The second training, Flying Together, will be held June 19-22 at Unicoi
State Park. This program is funded by a Teacher Quality grant and is open
exclusively to classroom teachers. Teachers in Cobb and Henry counties
receive priority, but we have several spaces open to teachers in other
systems.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Applications
received by April 10 will be given priority.
Kind regards,
Melanie
