Subject: [nflbirds] SMNWR---Sunday morning
In six and a half hours, starting just before 6:00 am, I logged 68 species
while conducting a shorebird survey. This doesn’t include a
Tropical/Couch’s Kingbird first reported by the Johnstones that I saw
across from Picnic Pond. Shorebirds diversity is increasing as migration
gathers steam. Some highlights of my morning were:

*Stony Bayou II*

Least Bittern (lots calling in the predawn)

King Rail (one calling from the freshwater marshes to the North)

Clapper Rail (many calling from the saltmarshes to the South)

Yellow-crowned Night Heron (two flying overhead, calling)

Yellow Warbler (getting more common, these early migrants represent the
southernmost breeders)



*Stony Bayou I*

Plovers (BB, Wilson’s, SP and Killdeer)

Spotted Sandpiper

Both Yellowlegs

Willet

Marbled Godwit

Ruddy Turnstone

Sandpipers (Stilt, Least, Western & Semipalmated)

Both Dowitchers

Black Tern

Roseate Spoonbill

Reddish Egret (they almost outnumber the Spoonbills)



*From the Lighthouse viewing platform*

Terns (Forster’s, Common, Sandwich and Royal)



*Double Bridges*

Acadian Flycatcher

Yellow Warbler

Parula



I had a Cooper’s Hawk along the Mounds Pool III levee. I usually start to
see a few in August. I’m seeing Yellow Warblers at multiple sites around
the refuge and Eastern Kingbirds along the levees. The Orchard Orioles seem
to have left.



There are deer flies and its hot, but late August birding brings change.
The first Bald Eagles should show up and, as we slip into September,
warbler migration will pick up.
Good Birding

Subject: Re: [nflbirds] Tropical/Couch's Kingbird
I had this bird just before noon. It was in the top of a dead pine tree
across Lighthouse Road from Picnic Pond. I managed to get a few pictures,
but nothing clear. I did have it in my scope at 60X.

Same as Matt, I could see a slightly notched tail in one of my photos,
which I believe knocks out everything except Tropical/Couch's. Although one
of the few accepted Couch's Kingbird records is from SMNWR, Tropical is the
more likely species. Unless it calls, I understand that they can't be
separated in the field.

Subject: [nflbirds] Upcoming Apalachee Audubon Society Birding Walks
Hi All,


Fall migration is already heating up, so it’s time to start thinking about
fall AAS birding trips. See below for a list of upcoming walks. Please let
me know by email (<jeff.m.oconnell...>) if you plan to attend.



*Friday, August 31**: Elinor-Klapp Phipps Park and Miller Landing*

Meet at the parking area for the soccer fields on Miller Landing Rd. at
7:45am. With a little bit of luck we might find some early migrants on
this walk, including Cerulean Warbler and American Redstart. Acadian
Flycatchers are sure to be calling from the deep woods, and who knows what
else we’ll find?



*Saturday, September 15**: Western Lake Jackson*

Meet at 7:45am at Faulk Dr. Landing, where we’ll be hoping for Alder
Flycatcher, which has been found here in the past. Afterwards, we’ll head
to Fred George Basin Greenway, with the possibility of stopping at other
sites around Lack Jackson afterwards, time permitting.



*Saturday, October 6**: J.R. Alford Greenway and Lake Lafayette Heritage*

Meet at the parking area at the end of Pedrick Rd at 7:45am. This site has
lots of potential for interesting fall migrants. Expect to walk 2+ miles.



*Saturday, October 27**: St. Marks NWR*

Late October is a good time to find vagrants on the refuge, plus a few
lingering migrants and returning sparrows and waterfowl. Meet at the Munson
Hill Off-Road Bike Trailhead on Woodville Hwy (just south of Capital
Circle) at 7:15am, and we'll carpool down.

Something strange is going on with nflbirds and Yahoo Mail.  I decided to check for your 8/15 posting on the birding.aba.org website.  On this website, the posting showed up at 19:17:33 (I assume CST) which is the time you said that you posted the message.

I went back late afternoon and found the bird again in same location - bay side of lighthouse pond trail, on obvious dead snag near picnic table, and in tall dead snag across boat channel on Cedar Point trail. I have a bad photo that shows big bill that I can share if you want it.
Not obvious in the photo, but bird was dark yellow on vent and belly, wings and tail brownish, tail slightly notched (can see that in pic), and upper back was olive/greenish. Never got a good front on view to see extent of yellow towards throat. No vocalization. Hung around for about 2 hours after I took pic @ 4;23pm and didn't see it again.
I'll also post on nflbirds and ebird. Matt

A couple of hours ago, I sent an email to nfl birds about an interesting Tyrannus kingbird at SMNWR. I never got the message in my in box, so wonder if it was distributed. On August 3, I received a response to a Don Morrow post from Jim Stevenson, but had never seen the original post.
I went to yahoo groups website, and saw the Tyrannus post listed there for 10:23 am this morning - I sent it at 1:23 pm, so I wonder if there is some clock glitch in yahoo groups that is holding up or blocking some posts. Did anyone see the Tyrannus post today?
I called my email provider to see if they were dumping it, but they couldn't help.

During a quick trip to the refuge this morning, I had my first Blue-winged
Teal of the season. They are the last of the migratory ducks to leave,
usually by the end of May, and the first to return. They are absent in most
summers and then return around mid-August. One will occasionally
over-summer.

Most of our winter ducks start showing up in October and November.

Wood Duck is our only breeding duck at the refuge.

doubt wandering the neighborhoods.



Drab plumage probably indicates the feminine gender, if they have no spots
like juveniles.



Have fun on that track; I did.

Over the past several years I visit the Leon High track and practice
fields at least once a week during summer for my workouts. During this
time, presence of one or two robins with associated juveniles regularly
work the field. This year I had not seen any until late this
afternoon. Two robins were there; the plumage seemed drab. Migrants?

Subject: RE: [nflbirds] SMNWR--Friday morning
Another excellent report from Don mentioned the bill color of very young
Sandwich Terns. We have about 25,000 pairs here in Galveston Bay, and the
very young can have both yellow bills as well as legs&feet. Also, within our
nesting population of ~7000 pairs of Royals, some have yellow legs and feet,
also looking pretty weird. By the end of August the leg color will "tern" to
black, right about the time normal birders start donning binoculars in fall.

Three and a half hours of lazy birding at St. Marks NWR starting at 8:00 am
resulted in 63 species. The refuge is awash like the rest of the Big Bend
with water partly covering Lighthouse Road in a few places, but not deep
enough to interfere with travel. Shorebirds were scarce, but there was still
plenty to see. Some highlights of my morning were:

Double Bridges

Acadian Flycatcher

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

RE & WE Vireo



Road to Helispot

Wood Duck (flyby)

BH Nuthatch

Woodpeckers (Downy, Red-cockaded, Red-bellied & Pileated)

Summer Tanager

Eastern Bluebird

Blue Grosbeak



Stony Bayou I

Roseate Spoonbill (7)

Reddish Egret (4 dark phase)

Black Tern (6)

Plovers (SP, BB & Wilson's)



Lighthouse Area (from the viewing platform)

Terns (Least, Black, Forster's, Sandwich & Royal)

Black Skimmer

Marbled Godwit



Some of the Sandwich Terns were recently fledged young that still had
yellow/orange bills and were begging for food from the adults. I had one
Yellow Warbler at Headquarters Pond. The rains have stopped and it should be
a good weekend for birding. Go down to the refuge!

How nice it is to see a Tallahasseean use the old vernacular "oak snake"
instead of the accepted Gray Rat Snake. Oak trees probably powered the color
and pattern of "oak snakes" as they diverged from Black Rat Snakes eons ago.
Good catch on the redstart, too, one of the few nonbreeding warblers we get
as early as late July.



Here on the Texas Coast a weak cool front is raining Orchard Orioles.

Afternoon nflbirders,

Lynn and I spent a couple of hours "car" birding this morning at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Approximately 40 white pelicans were at Stoney Bayou Pool #1, both resting and providing good images of avian orchestrated flight. Had one clapper rail giving good views on the side of the road at lighthouse pool. Of the 45 + species we observed this morning, we documented two reddish egrets, a dark-morph juvenile (all dark bill) and a white-morph either winter adult or juvenile (all dark bill) at Stoney Bayou #1. Can't recall seeing a white-morph reddish egret at St. Marks NWR in the past. Have seen many white-morph reddish egrets in the Keys and on Sanibel.

Anyone have any history of white-morph reddish egrets at the refuge?

For whatever reason, white morph REEGs are pretty scarce in the northeastern
Gulf. And the species isn't common there, anyway.

Out here in the western Gulf, I've often estimated they are no more than 15%
of the REEG population, though we can still see one or two in a day of field
work coastally.

In places further south that I work, like the Yucatan, white morphs are a
higher % of the population, though never half.

All of you have a nice week.

Afternoon nflbirders,

Lynn and I spent a couple of hours "car" birding this morning at St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge. Approximately 40 white pelicans were at Stoney
Bayou Pool #1, both resting and providing good images of avian orchestrated
flight. Had one clapper rail giving good views on the side of the road at
lighthouse pool. Of the 45 + species we observed this morning, we
documented two reddish egrets, a dark-morph juvenile (all dark bill) and a
white-morph either winter adult or juvenile (all dark bill) at Stoney Bayou
#1. Can't recall seeing a white-morph reddish egret at St. Marks NWR in the
past. Have seen many white-morph reddish egrets in the Keys and on Sanibel.

Anyone have any history of white-morph reddish egrets at the refuge?

Someone recently asked about White Morph Reddish Egrets at St. Marks. Robert Emond, Pam Smith, and I had one today.
