Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Bok Tower - Rufous Hummingbird & others
I made a quick trip to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales today to see if I could locate the Rufous Hummingbird that's been reported by Roberta Blair & Sharon Magner. Sure enough, I found her without too much trouble. She's set up shop in a patch of firebushes at Window by the Pond and is defending it vigorously against all comers.

I also got a quick and frustrating glimpse of an odd flycatcher up near the tower itself. It had the general shape of an Empid, with very bold wingbars and a nice eyering. Given that the area around the tower is a far cry from the nice mesic forests where you would expect to find Acadian, I feel like this bird could have been a Least. Unfortunately it disappeared quickly, and 10 minutes of spishing on my part could not convince it to show itself or even make the slightest noise, so I had to let it go. But it might be worth checking on again. When you walk up to the tower, you'll come to a point where the path is blocked off for construction and there are two signs pointing in opposite directions that say "Take the road less traveled." If you're facing those signs, the bird was in the tallest oak ahead of you and to the right.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Black-capped Petrels, shearwaters and warblers. Pelagic Trip Report
Hi to all,

Not only did we have 12 Black-capped Petrels and over 100 Cory's
Shearwaters, but we also had some great land birding even while over the
Gulf Stream. It was an amazing day!

On Sunday, September 28, 2014, 48 yawning, but excited birders, boarded
the Pastime Princess in New Smyrna Beach and headed out of Ponce de Leon
Inlet at 4:00 a.m for an exciting day on the ocean. We went out 65 miles
to the western edge of a canyon about 2,500 feet deep about ½ way across
the Gulf Stream. At first light we had made it to about 36 miles
offshore. We immediately began to pick up a few Cory’s Shearwaters. We
hit the western edge of the Gulf Stream at about 40 miles offshore. This
area had numerous Cory’s Shearwaters, a single Great Shearwater,
several Audubon’s Shearwaters and a number of Sooty and Bridled Terns.
There was also a single Brown Booby and a distant jaeger. Well off the
stern a Parasitic Jaeger stayed well away from the boat and another
appeared a short time later.

We reached the Gulf Stream at about 40 miles offshore. The Gulf Stream
is about 40 miles wide here. We stopped at about 45 miles offshore at a
good Sargassum weed line to release two hatchling Loggerhead Turtles
from the Marine Science Center’s turtle hospital and also two larger
Loggerhead Turtles from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in Jekyll Island
Georgia. We went out well into the Gulf Stream in order to look for
Black-capped Petrels and, hopefully, some storm-petrels. The
Black-capped Petrels generally appear at about 60 miles offshore, this
day was no exception. Right at about the 60 mile mark we began to pick
up the dynamic soaring of a few Black-capped Petrels. We found 12
Black-capped Petrels during the day. We continued on the edge of the
canyon that drops off to 2,500 – 2,800 feet deep. We did not find much
there so we made our way back to the western edge of the Gulf Stream. We
stopped at several weedlines and had excellent looks at Bridled Terns
floating on debris and also Red-necked Phalaropes in the weedline.
Farther towards shore we found more activity with lots of Cory’s
Shearwaters, Sooty and Bridled Terns and smaller numbers of Audubon’s
Shearwaters. As we got closer to land we began to find small flocks of
Black Terns and Common Terns and we found more Brown Boobies, including
three adults with one young bird. Most of the Brown Boobies that we get
this far north are young birds. Perhaps the most remarkable sightings of
the trip were numerous flocks of passerines apparently on their way to
the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Many were American Redstarts. It was hard
to identify the flocks as they passed, but we were able to identify and
remarkable array of landbirds. I did not get an accurate count of the
land birds, but it must have been 200+ birds throughout the day. Most
were in small flocks of 10-20 birds, although an occasional single bird
would circle the boat and on two occasions a Common Yellowthroat landed
on the boat. We made it back to the dock at about 7:30 p.m.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] No Key West Quail Dove-Monday, Sept.29,'14
I arrived at Long Key SP at 2pm Sept.29th--spoke with a birder who was
getting into her car, departing. She, and others had been present since
mid morning, and did not see, or hear the Quail Dove.

I, and two other birders were birding until 5pm, with no results.

We will be there this morning.

The last posting about the birds presence was on the TAS Miami Bird Board,
which stated the bird was presence at 3:57pm on Sunday, Sept.28,'14;
however it did not state the bird was seen in the posting.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Report From Holloway Park
Lovely weather for a walk today, got to Holloway park in Lakeland, FL at
9:15 this morning. skys were overcast at first, but the clouds burned
off by 10, and it was sunshine the rest of the way.
Today I saw 31 species and the list is here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19948638

Some interesting notes,
Saw something I've never seen before today, all three mimids in one
place, a tulip poplar tree, apparently feeding on the seeds. The
mockingbirds were the most aggressive, confronting the brown thrasher,
and any catbird that wasn't with a friend. That's another thing, When I
saw gray catbirds today, I didn't just see them one at a time, but in
twos, or threes, up to five at a time! The catbirds reminded me of the
saying: /Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? /Who watches the watchers? A
group of 5 shadowed me for about 15 minutes while I walked the trail.
It was also good to see Common Yellowthroats. no Males, all females,
including one that flushed about 4 feet from me.
That's all for now, might make the Audubon trip to Saddle Creek in the
morning with the girls, but I might sleep in too!
Later,
GB Hoyt.

It is a female Common Yellowthroat.
Remember that the Florida Museum of Natural History needs salvaged birds for
it research collection. If you find dead birds in good shape, especially ones that
may be rare (or that you do not know the ID), save it in a ziploc bag with a slip
of paper with the date, exact location, and your name, put it in the freezer (wild
birds are cleaner than the chicken you buy at Publix; you will undersatnd if you
have ever been in a chicken farm) and email me and I will let you know about

Hey All-

Yesterday, I found two Empid Flycathcers in the Mullberry Tree Area at Ft
De Soto. They were actively feeding in a stand of Saltbush north of the
fountain. My initial reaction was that both birds were Alder Flycatchers
based on the field marks I was able to see and then photograph. However,
the bird remained silent. This morning I returned to the area and both
birds were still present. Through the course of the 45 minutes I spent
watching the birds feed and fly back and forth at least one of the birds
(probably both) called several times, the Peet call indicative of Alder
Flycatcher. There is also a female Wilson's Warbler feeding in the same
vicinity. Attached are several poor photos (bad light and gittery
photographer).

If planning to head out there PLEASE do not use tapes. Patience will win
out.

Good morning-



A late post from Saturday (20 Sep):

Four of us (Cheryl Libera, Mauri and Mark Dietrich) birded J.B. Starkey
Wilderness Park in Pasco Co. on Saturday. The reason for the reporting delay
was to confirm the previously documented presence of a species. Among the
three Bachman's Sparrows seen was a buff-breasted, reddish-brown plumaged
bird that we have identified as belonging to the northern illinoensis subsp.
We watched the bird singing on a low branch (5 feet from the ground) within
15 feet. The bird politely turned several times giving us a clear view of
its plumage. We were able to compare the bird to two other Bachman's at
different locations. The other two birds were the expected Florida subsp.
(aestivalis) appearing darker and lacking the well-defined delineation of
buff breast and creamy belly as seen in the illinoensis. This is by no means
the first record of the spp. In Florida but as a rare migrant was worth
noting.



Other spp. seen included Canada Warbler, Northern Parula, Common
Yellowthroat, Pine Warbler, Indigo Bunting, and Brown-headed Nuthatch
(common).

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] lesser black-backed gull and common tern ID
Hello all,
While out at Fort De Soto yesterday (9/21) I saw what I thought was a lesser-
black backed gull, but was hoping to get confirmation. I've only seen them on
the east coast and they all had the heavily streaked head. This one, however,
had an all white head. I'm guessing this is just because it's early in the season
and the bird was still in breeding plumage. It was loafing with some laughing
gulls at the North Beach northern lagoon area during high tide yesterday.

Also, I saw some terns last Sunday (9/14) that I thought were common terns,
but were missing some of the characteristics (dark carpal-bar and gray on
chest). They did show wings longer than tail, dark primaries, and one appeared
to have red in its legs and bill. I've attached 2 photos: the first (ID1) seems like
a better candidate for common tern whereas the second (ID2) shows more
orange on the legs and bill and may be a Forster's tern. I would appreciate any
feedback on what these two are and what characteristics are most helpful in
distinguishing the two species, particularly when they are transitioning between
alternate and standard plumages.

Also, as a reminder/heads up to Yahoo users - Yahoo is still not working
correctly with the listserv. I had to change to a gmail account as my messages
sent from my Yahoo account were only going to the listserv archives, but were
not distributed to the group. I quickly scanned the archives and there are a
handful of posts from Yahoo accounts that I don't think were distributed to the
list.

Thanks in advance,

I was lucky enough to get to AD Barnes yesterday in Miami.
Had a nice assortment of Warblers:
I was at AD Barnes from 8:00-10:00 in area of Homeless Hammock and paved
walkway/fitness area:
Red-eyed Vireo - MANY
A. Redstart - several
Worm-eating Warblers - many
Black and White Warblers 5+
N. Parula 4
Ovenbirds 7+
Black-throated Blue Female 1
Baltimore Oriole M 1
Trail's Flycatcher ( previously posted as such)
Great Crested Flycatcher 1
Common Yellowthroat 2
BG Gnatcatcher 4

The most fun, for me, was the flock of 10-12 Common Hill Myna birds in the Pine
trees just beyond the park. Very noisy and I could not ID their calling/squawking.
Then I saw them.
Great day with help from some other birders out there.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Flamingo
Hi, Strictly speaking, that Flamingo is not countable according to the ABA's recording rules. If what you are saying is true and it is an escaped captive bird, it is not considered to be a "wild" bird. However, it is your list and you can do as you choose. But the advantage of maintaining an ABA-compliant list is the ability to compare list totals with others who observe those same rules. Here are the "recording rules": http://listing.aba.org/aba-recording-rules/ Going beyond those rules, I've understand that the ABA has reinstated a committee to elaborate on what birds are countable and where. Just because a species is on the ABA list does not mean it is countable everywhere in the area. For instance, an established exotic, such as Nutmeg Mannikin, can have an established population in one area of the country (California, in this case) but not in the rest of the country (such as Florida). There are many such situations: parrots countable only in Texas, parrots countable only in Florida, Lovebirds in Arizona, Mute Swans in the northeast...etc. And Ring-necked Pheasants--where are they countable? Not in Florida, I'd guess. Dotty Robbins

Good morning all,
My husband and I want to know opinions on whether or not a known escaped Flamingo roaming around in Hunter's Creek counts as a "life bird". It has been in the wild and surviving on its own for a few years now, and has been frequently seen in the Kissimmee/Hunter's Creek area. It is unknown what zoo/facility it escaped from, but it does have a green ankle band. We have checked with local facilities (Gatorland) but it is not registered with them.

Any advice/opinions welcome.

Hi all,

I am managing a video project for Audubon Florida involving sea level rise

footage focusing on any songbird considered migrant in coastal FL, perched
in any coastal hammock-type habitat. Could be a warbler, vireo, oriole,
bunting, Scarlet Tanager, etc. A relatively colorful bird is preferred,
just because of the visual impact. Not a vagrant - a regular to irregular
migrant songbird. I am asking for this footage as a donation to a
worthwhile project. If you are willing to provide donated footage, please
email me as soon as possible.

While walking the beach early this morning, I spotted a Magnificent Frigatebird, his red throat visible, soaring with the vultures up high. While down low next to me were two Red Knots, one of which still had a good bit of red color.

The Hammock has been extremely quiet for fall migration. Today was no exception with only 7 species of warblers, but of interest was an early BLACKPOLL warbler, a picture perfect example of a first fall female; we first noted the bright yellow legs and feet, the olive back with striping.

At least 6 Red-eyed Vireos were chasing each other around the Hammock. Keith spotted a Yellow-throated Vireo and I observed an Eastern Wood-Pewee.

Good afternoon bird folks,

I visited Ding Darling this morning and it was lovely. Combining early morning and low tide makes for a great combo. I had a total of 41 species including several warblers seen on the Caloosa Trail, highlight being the Yellow Warblers.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] MINWR-(Brevard)
After two trips around Bio Lab Rd. at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, I relocated the Red-necked Phalarope seen by Mitchell this week. Today was birding in the rain. The vegetation at roadside is in some places higher than my car or me, so I felt lucky that I saw the bird in an fairly open area. The bird was 2.3 miles from the south entrance, which I’m sure doesn’t matter, since while looking with scope, it flew. I also had two Wilson’s Phalaropes, none of which were together. (another birder today had three Wilson’s-all together). One Wilson’s seemed to have a disabled foot-at least it was hanging down in flight.

I found only a few warblers in the light rain, several Ovenbirds.

Hello all,
Sorry to re-post, but I originally sent this from a Yahoo account and I don't think it
went through.

I Had a couple unexpected yard birds this afternoon in Zephyrhills. I walked my
yard and the adjacent vacant lot that is dominated by mature sand live oaks and
was rewarded with a blue-winged warbler and a pair of blue grosbeaks. There was
a lot of bird activity, but mostly from blue-gray gnatcatchers, cardinals, and tufted
titmice.

All the best,

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Canada and Blackburnian Warblers at Cockroach Bay
All,

This morning at Cockroach Bay Preserve in Hillsborough County I found a
female Canada Warbler, a rare warbler in the county with only a handful of
records. Brian Ahern relocated it a bit later.

I also had 6 Blackburnian Warblers. A surprisingly high number for this
species in a small area. Several other people have mentioned unusually high
numbers of Blackburnians this fall, both here on Birdbrains and on some of
the Florida birding Facebook pages. Aside from today, I've certainly had
good luck with Blackburnians recently. Sometimes it is hard to judge yearly
fluctuations in bird populations accurately, but I remember reading that
there were some indications that spruce bud worms were on the upswing in
Canada. It is possible that the apparent increase in Blackburnian Warblers
we are observing in Florida is due to a good breeding season linked to the
increase in food availability created by the beginning of a spruce bud
worm outbreak.

Best,

Cameron Cox

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Yesterday's Yellow Warblers, Green Key
Hello,

Every fall I keep track of Yellow Warblers passing through the mangroves at Green Key. Yesterday's flight was the largest I have counted. The birds were flying through early morning, after lunch and until after 8:00pm. The attached photo was a shot in the dark, as I was leaving, of what I thought was one Yellow, surprised by the double!

Although I only spent a total of 2 1/2 hours on the key, my final count was 179 Yellow Warblers!

Other warblers; just 10 Prairie, 2 Northern Waterthrush, 1 Yellow-throated , and 1 Prothonotary.

Hey everyone,

I had a fun afternoon at Leu Gardens. I arrived at about 1:15 and I was almost chased away early by the rain, but I stuck it out and ended up having a great walk. The weather was pleasantly cool, overcast, and refreshingly breezy by the lake with only occasional sprinkles. I was there until after 4:30 and I managed to find some decent birds, including eight species of warblers - but no redstarts for some reason! Here's the list:

Wood Duck
Wood Stork
Double-Crested Cormorant
Anhinga
Great Egret
Osprey
Red-Tailed Hawk
Mourning Dove
Barred Owl (1)
Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (at least 4)
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Great Crested Flycatcher (1 - late according to eBird!)
White-Eyed Vireo (1)
Red-Eyed Vireo (a baker's dozen or so)
Blue Jay
American Crow
Tufted Titmouse
Carolina Wren
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Veery (1)
Gray Catbird (1 - may be my earliest FOF in Florida! I was surprised to find it!)
Brown Thrasher
Northern Mockingbird
Ovenbird (1)
Worm-Eating Warbler (1)
Black-and-White Warbler (1)
Northern Parula (5)
Blackburnian Warbler (2 - 1 immature bird; 1 good-looking, orange-faced male)
Black-Throated Blue Warbler (1 female)
Yellow-Throated Warbler (2)
Prairie Warbler (3)
Northern Cardinal
Common Grackle
Boat-Tailed Grackle
House Finch

Leu Gardens is located near the intersection of US-17/92 (Mills Ave.) and Virginia Ave. in northern downtown Orlando, north-central Orange County.

Good birding,

Cindy Elder, Angel Gonzalez and I trekked through the yellow trail at the GTMNERR this morning from around 8 am - 1:30 pm in only two miles of actual walking. The YELLOW trail can be found at the website of (see below) and is located north of Vilano Beach and south of Ponte Vedra Beach. We spent a long time on the trails to get the birds listed below. Bugs were present, but the trails are nice and dry. We walked the yellow trail - one mile each way - to the very end where it meets the Intracoastal. The birds seem to gather at this area in the vicinity of a kiosk near a beautiful hammock. It was a splendid day with several neat feeding flocks. Birds were seen all along the yellow trail today.

Hi all,



On our short trip out from the Orlando area to Pensacola and back, Gary and
I birded eight different parks, five of which -- O’Leno SP (Columbia
Co.); Wakulla
Springs SP (Wakulla Co.); St. George Island SP (Franklin Co.); Okaloosa
Holding Ponds (Okaloosa Co.); and Fort Pickens SP were totally new to us,
but made easily “birdable” thanks to all the helpful hints sent by various
BRDBRAINERS.


At Okaloosa Holding Ponds, we even had the advantage of a personal guided
tour by Wendi Greene and ID help from Malcolm Swan. However, given a
peculiar lack of interesting birds on the day we showed up (No really, we
don’t wear Baird’s Sandpiper repellent. Really!) Wendi was reduced to
showing us the dry “ponds” where the good birds had been hanging out and
Malcolm’s expertise was wasted on reassuring us that those 10 peeps there
really were all just Least Sandpipers in poor lighting.



Good parks and beautiful habitat more or less free of interesting birds
were a fairly common experience on the way out, with only St. Marks NWR and
Bolen Bluff offering a handful of interesting warblers and other migrants.
In fact, the most spectacular sighting on the first part of the trip was
meteorological.



We were birding the fort area at Fort Pickens and Gary was having some fun
snapping photos of a pair of cute, cooperative Prairie Warblers, when we
looked back toward the East and saw what looked for all the world like a
tornado about to devour the camper registration building. (We have a great
photo, but uploading it makes the file too large. )-:)


Apparently, a waterspout had gotten very close to land (or had indeed made
landfall). As we hightailed it out of there, we listened to the tornado
warning on the radio as we stared at the thing itself. I love birding at
all, but that was a little more exciting than the Prairie Warbler.



Our birding luck changed on the way back from Pensacola with the passage of
the intense front others have posted about. This morning (as I wrote
earlier) we had a terrific time mainly on the Bolen Bluff trail at Paynes
Prairie Preserve (Alachua Co.), but also at Palm Point Park on Newnan’s
Lake. At Bolen Bluff, we found one medium-sized flock, a few interesting
single birds, then on the way out, one *epic *flock. This last flock
contained at least 20 different bird species and at least 50-60 individuals
birds, probably many more (I'm still convinced there was a Canada or a
Golden-winged Warbler in there somewhere that we just couldn't find).



More detailed totals for today:



Bolen Bluff Trail (Paynes Prairie Preserve – off of Rt. 441)



Eastern Wood-pewee (2)

Acadian Flycatcher (2+)

Red-eyed Vireo (4)

Veery (1)

Ovenbird (2)

Northern Waterthrush (3)

Black-and-white (3)

Prothonotary (1+)

Kentucky (1; a lifer for Gary and the first KEWA I’ve seen away from Fort

Hooded (5; I realize that Hooded Warblers are relatively common in Northern
and Western Florida, but seeing so many was a real treat for us.)

American Redstart (5)

Northern Parula (15+)

Blackburnian (3+)

Yellow (1)

Chestnut-sided (2+)

Yellow-throated (2)

Prairie Warbler (1)

Baltimore Oriole (1)

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] 8 Blackburnian Warblers, Osceola County (9/17/14)
Hey everyone,

Today as I was leading a birding tour on Disney property in northern Osceola County (no public access), I found at least eight Blackburnian Warblers split among two widely-separated mixed foraging flocks. The first flock had at least three and the second at least five. Two of the birds we saw were adult males; the others were a variety of sexes and ages. I just thought it was noteworthy, as I've never seen more than one in any inland location here in Central Florida at any given time. I was delighted to find the first one, let alone EIGHT! Other migrants and possibly breeding migrants included an Acadian Flycatcher, Yellow-Throated and Red-Eyed Vireos, a Black-and-White Warbler, an adult male American Redstart, a couple of Northern Parulas and a Yellow-Throated Warbler. Seriously, it's not everyday in the Orlando area where the Blackburnians outnumber the Parulas! :)

I'm curious to see what others have found around the state today. Again, the area where I found the birds today is off-limits to the general public, but basically it's a natural area near Celebration in northern Osceola County.

Good birding,

John Thomton

Hey All-

Just wanted to give an update for those looking to bird either Ft De Soto
or Sawgrass Lake Park tomorrow. After the heaviest rain had past Ft De
Soto was blitzed with migrants. 100's of Red-eyed Vireos, Dozens of
Eastern Wood-Pewee, and 15 species of warbler. However, by 5pm with wind
subsiding and sun out many of the migrants had gone (at least I couldn't
find them, even in the places I'd had them 30 minutes before). As for
Sawgrass Lake Park, a multitude of migrants were seen through out the day
include LOTS of Blackburian, several Veery, Acadian Flycatcher, Cerulean,
Blue-winged, Black-throated Green, and Chesnut-sided Warblers, plus many
others. All these birds were still being seen as of 6:30 pm. Good
Birding!

activity was highest at the Mullberry Tree Area, but lots of migrants at
North Beach too. List includes 9 species of warblers, lots of Red-eyed
Vireos, and Eastern Wood-Pewees, and several Summer Tanagers. Many more
birds flying around than ID'd.....be prepared for birds high up in trees

My husband heard our Whips singing in the pasture this morning. Always love to hear them. I saw 2 nightjars a couple of days ago feeding on the back ten acres. Seemed big, so I thought they were Chucks. Maybe not. Wish I could find them sleeping for a pic. They are awesome creatures.

We also got a Lifer Sunday at moms. A Veery was coming to a sprinkler we had on my moms vegetable garden. That was cool!! Right out in the open. He was really thirsty.

All,

The red-necked phalarope continued to feed and preen actively this morning at about 11:00. There seems to be lots of food in the tidal pool, and it’s worth checking for other birds, as well. No spotting scope was required this morning, as the bird sometimes swam too close for my camera to focus. Here’s just one image.

Hello,

A 50 second walk to the mailbox turned into a 50 minute stationary
observation from my driveway. I looked up, as always, and saw a buteo and
a few adult Bald Eagles. Decided the bins might be a good idea and I was
rewarded with:

--Peregrine Falcon ... flagged as "early" by eBird
--Northern Harrier ...flagged as "early" by eBird

I saw an accipiter that was very faint and disappeared into the clouds,
unable to ID it. The clouds may have been low, the raptors were all very
high, making observations of them like looking at ghosts.

Photos:

After 2,700 Common Nighthawks the other day and early raptors today, I just
might have to start giving my yard and driveway a bit of respect.

Robert,
Brian is right, the banded bird is definitely a Purple Martin. Only martins
have those wide wings in the swallow clan, and the plumage matches as well.
Your other photos of the bird (on your website) are of a different bird,
which is a Tree Swallow. Sometimes when photographing aerial birds you can
lose track of who is who.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Banded Tree Swallow
I didn't post a second photo so I am not sure what you are referring to. I
did look at some other photos and the throat is whiter, similar to the rest
of the body. My detail at the Flickr site notes that the front end of the
bird is in shadow and that's why it looks darker up front.

When you say "forget about that one trait", I don't understand that because
a very bold white/black border running the entire length from the lore area
under the eye to behind the eye is a diagnostic trait of the Tree Swallow,
not a Purple Martin and not a Northern Rough-winged Swallow.

Hi Robert,

Forget about that one trait, chalk it up to molt or just individual
variation. Now look at the rest of the bird. It does look very similar to
the second photo you just posted, granted one image is closer and sharper
than the other. Now look at some photos of Tree Swallows at different ages
and you will see some characteristics that aren't shared between the bird
you photographed and Tree Swallows.

Best,

Good evening,

Valeri Ponzo spent the morning birding four sites in the Crystal River area. Highlights:

Fort Island Gulf Beach (0850-1025). Remarkably, NO DISTURBANCE to the beach-roosting birds by sunbathers and beachgoers.

4 American Oystercatchers
1 Semipalmated Sandpiper (juveniles)
550 Laughing Gulls
40 Royal Terns
51 Sandwich Terns
5 Forster's Terns
1 Common Tern
1 Least Tern (getting late; photo attached)
250 Black Skimmer (30 juveniles)

Gary Maidhof Walk to Nature (1024-1101). Very small park, but nice.
2 Eastern Screech-Owls responded to playback to attract Neotrops
1 Yellow Warbler

Fort Island Trail Park (1108-1140).
2 dark-morph Short-tailed Hawks way off the short boardwalk, one gained altitude toward the direction of the nuke plant stacks, then dove down

Crystal River Preserve State Park, Churchhouse Hammock (1206-1317).
1 Barred Owl
1 Eastern Screech-Owl responded to playback to attract Neotrops


Best regards,

Bill Pranty
Bayonet Point, Florida

Hi Brian,

From my understanding, A Purple Martin would look more spotted underneath
(a juv) but I don't think a Purple Martin would show such a stark
black/white line just beneath its eye and running from under the lore to
way back behind the eye. Would not a Purple Martin, regardless of age,
show a dark head/eye area? We are seeing in this photo here a bold
black/white dividing line just below the eye like a Tree Swallow. I am
certainly interested in hearing more and from others giving opinion. It is
that area just below the eye that is key to me--please tell me if I have
that wrong.

Greetings,

The attached and linked photo is a Tree Swallow that shows a blue band on
its right leg and (maybe) a possible federal band on the left leg.

My ID of Tree Swallow is based on the white area extending very close to
(just below) the eye and running parallel to the bill and eye, then behind
the eye. A Northern Rough-winged would not show this type of black/white
high contrast so close to the eye. Also, this bird glided extensively,
another trait of the Tree Swallow.

I looked up a few banding projects for Tree Swallows and I understand how
they banded them, using nest boxes. My question is how would these birds
ever get mist netted to draw some history and science from its travels?
They fly high, so unless there is some other way other than ground based
mist nets, I don't see these Tree Swallows ever seeing a bander's hand
again.

Howard and I drove the Viera wetlands Saturday evening and all areas were open to vehicles. There has not been rain, so I’d assume they are open.
There was a Bald Eagle, Crested Caracara, and a few Blue-winged Teal plus the ever-present Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. A few days previous to this I had an American Bittern in west side of cell #2. If you go early in morning you’ll see hundreds of birds leaving the roost trees in cell # 2; in the evening they are coming back.

Hi BirdBrains,

Does anyone know the current status of Viera Wetlands, and whether it is open to vehicular traffic? I have called nearly every day for the past week and the message is that it is open only to foot traffic. In the past, we got that message and went anyway, and it was open. Apparently someone forgot to change the message.

Hi All,

The Red-necked Phalarope was very easy to find this morning on Siesta Key
in the tidal pool north of Beach Access #5. Also present today there were
two White-rumped Sandpipers. Plenty of shorebirds & terns to pick through
to keep you busy. This would be a great spot to check regularly.


As far as I can determine the Red-necked Phalarope is a first county record
for Sarasota.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Had Fun at Holloway Friday, and Took Kids to Circle B this Morning.
No big impressive species lists from Friday at Holloway Park in
Lakeland, Three of us walked the big loop, and got some exercise. We also
had some great views of different butterflies. We did have some very brief
glimpses at some NOPAs and BLGN. Most of the migrants it seems, were taking
advantage of the tailwind provided by the tropical low in south FL that
day. Coolest thing I'd say I saw was a Loggerhead Shrike. I've always
thought it's a good day when I see one of those. I did take some horrible
pictures of an American Kestrel using my binoculars and my cell phone
camera, and I posted those to my google+ profile.

The girls (Katie age 9 and Emma age 6) woke me up this morning wanting to
go bird Circle B Bar, once again, not a big list, but we did have good
practice using binoculars, and had some excellent looks at a LBHE, and a
TUVU. I was especially proud of Emma, who ID'd the Little Blue Heron using
field marks, shape, leg color and bill color. She also spotted the TUVU,
which was only 15-30 yards away. You could really make out the details on
the TUVU's head, I think we were leaving just as the migrants were waking
up, there was some BLGN in the parking lot on the way out, we got there at
8AM and left at 9AM.

Here's the link to the ebird checklists:

Holloway Park: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19809773

Circle B: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19818484

I plan on being out at Holloway again at 09:15 Friday, and I'll certainly
welcome any company.

Later,

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Trip Report: Northern Ecuador - The Andes & Amazonia
Hi All,

Last month I was invited on a 16 day birding trip across northern Ecuador.
In preparation for the trip I started studying the birds about a year in
advance and it paid off really well. Our itinerary was pretty much a cross
country route West to East. We started in the Northwest around the
Tandayapa Valley and every few days we would stay at a new location with
different habitat and elevation working our way slowly across the Andes and
into the Amazon Basin where we ended the trip at Sani Lodge off of the Rio
Napo.

This strategy allowed us to see a great sample of the diversity of the
birds found in Ecuador. By the end of the trip our group had found 533
species. Since this was my first trip to South America lifers were many for
me - 386! At the start of the trip a friend of mine jokingly said I would
average about one lifer every thirty minutes, turned out he wasn't too far
off!

Highlights were many everything from Andean Condors to Harpy Eagle, Giant
Hummingbird to Amazonian Umbrellabird. We birded in snow and ice at 14,000
feet to spending hours at the top of a canopy tower slowly scanning with a
scope across a humid jungle. Over the course of the trip we found 57
hummingbird species, 9 antpitta species & 78 species of tanagers.

Even though Ecuador has one of the highest birdlists of any country, it
only has a few endemic species of birds which mostly are found in the
south. On this trip we had a chance at one Ecuadorian endemic that I really
want to see, the Cocha Antshrike. Until 1991 it was only known from one
type-specimen. We were lucky enough to find a pair of these birds on our
last full day of the trip. We were wading in a wet varzea forest at Sani
Lodge and had both a male and female give us great close looks out in the
open while singing.

Attached is a complete trip list of the species we saw and places we birded
along with a few photos. If anyone has any questions about a particular
species or location please feel free to email me privately.

Best,
Brian

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] RFI: Warblers, other migrants
Hi all,

I'm going to be driving from the Orlando area out to Pensacola soon and
plan to do some birding along the way. I know that its difficult to predict
which species will turn up on any given day, but does anyone know of a
migrant hot spot along the general route that's been reliably "hot" this
particular season? Some park that has been reliably good or even
"outperforming" so to speak?

I'm asking because I'm currently suffering from the lack-of-migrant blues.
My favorite local hotspot in Seminole Co. (Central Winds Park) doesn't seem
to be "producing" this year like it did in the two previous fall seasons. I
checked eBird and it seems that this is true for Orange and Seminole
counties in general. Overall numbers are down as well as number of warbler
species seen (18 by this time in 2013 and only 14 this year). However, when
I compare the entire state of Florida for August/September to the data for
this year, it seems more or less comparable. Long story short, some hotspot
in some other county has our warblers and I'd like to see them!! Joking!!

But seriously, I'm going to go check the eBird data for some well-known
spots (like Bolen Bluff at Paynes Prairie), but if anyone else has a better
suggestion in the mean time, please let me know!

Thanks and ...

Happy Birding!

Hello,

On Aug 31 on the Lake Apopka Bike Trail (Loop Trail), our group tallied 16
Yellow Warblers and 29 Prairie Warblers. I went the entire four miles.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19613738

Today, on the same trail, over a three mile stretch of it, I observed 28
Yellow and 21 Prairie Warblers.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19801920

These are the highest numbers I have ever seen for these species. I don't
notice reports of higher than normal numbers elsewhere. eBird shows the
highest density in Orange County can last up to the 4th week of Sep for the
Yellow and the 3rd week of Oct for the Prairie.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] 9/11/14--8 sp. Warbler's, Central Winds Park, Seminole County
Hey all, John Thomton and I hit up Central Winds Park, Seminole County for a couple hours this AM for some warbler fun. Several big flocks through out the Park, mostly Northern Parula. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever observed so many Parula in one location. We had easily 40 birds and that may have been conservative. At one point John was phishing and I was trying my best at a screech owl and one tree had easily 15 Parula’s in it. I thought I had a quick glimpse at a Cerulean, but the flock was moving fast and we never got back on it, so that will go down as possible/maybe. Over all it was a nice walk through the park. My first time there.

Highlights:

Chimney Swift

Red-eyed Vireo- 6

N. Parula- 40

Yellow Warbler- 3

Yellow-throated- 3

Prairie- 7

A. Redstart- 4

Black + White- 2

Worm-eating- 1

Ovenbird- 1

Summer Tanager- 1

Central Winds Park is located along the south shore of Lake Jessup along Rt. 419/434.






Good Birding,

16 1/2 hours later, and 350 miles further south, Rafael Galvez and the
Florida Keys Hawkwatch team tallied 4,275 Common Nighhawks today, after I
saw a huge movement over my home yesterday (Sep 9) estimated at 2,700.

There is at least one report of 1,000 plus from North Carolina on Sep 9.
It was at 530pm, mine was at 458/pm.

Birders, about two hours before dusk (or sooner), find a reasonably open
space and just keep looking up. My observation at 458pm may have been a
bit early in the day but there was heavy overcast. This species can
migrate anytime during the day but a couple hours before dusk can be the
sweet spot.

I'm hoping some others can see and report this awesome spectacle.

A bit later this season, the Turkey Vulture can put on an equally
incredible show.

Keep looking up!!! (especially near dusk).

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] White-throated sparrow song summary
Thanks Bill. That is a very good point that I neglected to include. The
corral I mentioned lies on the border of fire controlled sandhills, and
mixed forest, that I believe turns into a thin stand of hardwood hammock
outlining a stream. It's one of my favorite spots for eastern towhees as
they sometimes pop up right next to you along the road on the sandhills
side. The singing I heard came from the edge of the mixed forest side.
Thanks again for the response. The habitat is a very important consideration

Good evening,

Randy Harrod, Bob Epstein and I gave it a 90-minute try late this
afternoon, but could not find a Baird's Sandpiper along Cockroach Bay Road.
The sod field across from the trailer park where Goodwin reported the bird
was short-grassed and filled with an estimated 1,000 peeps, 4/5ths of which
were Least Sandpipers. Occasionally they would flush, fly around the field
and then land back in the same general area. They dispersed widely after a
Cooper's Hawk flew through them at 6:15 PM.

Our best birds were three Pectoral Sandpipers and a lone Black-bellied
Plover.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] White-throated sparrow song summary
Good evening,

Two other issues, not yet discussed publicly (unless somebody with a yahoo account posted!) are seasonality and behavior.

Early September is quite early for any wintering sparrow except Lark Sparrow to be in Florida, and I think would be record-early for either Zonotrichia species. Additionally, although White-throated Sparrows often sing during winter, I'm not aware that White-crowned Sparrows regularly sing at all while in Florida.

To me, neither Zonotrichia seems likely to be the bird that Bill Tarpley heard singing. I'm not familiar with the habitat "behind the horse corral" at Wekiwa Springs State Park, but if it's not fire-maintained flatwoods or sandhills, then I would suggest that Bachman's Sparrow could then be excluded by habitat.

You can never provide too much information when describing an "unknown" bird; habitat is often a key feature.

Thanks to everyone that replied with some insight into possible culprits of
what may sound like a White-throated Sparrow. There are 3 species that were
most mentioned that could possibly be mistaken for one. Bachman's Sparrow,
White Crowned Sparrow, and Carolina Chickadee. Then of course some
mimickers. The Bachman's Sparrow and the Carolina Chickadee I had
experienced that day. When I listen to the many sounds of the Bachman's
Sparrow, I can see some ways it may be mistaken, but for me the tonal value
of the voice doesn't match what I was hearing. The White Crowned Sparrow's
song is pretty similar to start, but every sample I've listened to, it has a
very different ending. The most recognizable aspect of the song I heard was
the double "peabody" at the end. During the very first song, I was actually
anticipating a third "peabody", but it ended after the second. It sang 3
more times, paused for a minute, then did another 2 before i didn't hear it
again. Every time, it only sang 2 "peabodys". The other culprit that I was
steering towards was the Carolina Chickadee. I had seen 2 earlier that day,
not far away from that location. The voice of the chickadee sounds very
close to what I was hearing. If it was a Chickadee, I'd suspect it had a
variant in it's usual song. Some birds do. Though it would be an interesting
variant to end the same way as a White-throated Sparrows. It could have also
been exactly what i thought I was hearing. That's a pretty distinct song,

Hi all,


Finally found the Baird's at Cockroach Bay on my second attempt. I tried to get photos with my point and shoot through my scope - no identifiable shot. I was hoping that once I got the photos on the computer that I could have a decent shot, but I missed the bird except for one bad shot that is unidentifiable. The bird was in the sod field north side of Cockroach Bay Road about 50 yards west of the trailer park on the south side of the road. It was with about 150 peeps. Ron Smith & others got there an hour later but the number of birds in the field had increased to over a thousand..... They were still looking last time I talked to them.

Sorry if the location causes confusion. If you google GTMNERR.org trail maps, you should get the info you need. There are several links for the GTM and they seem to always change them around. Basically, going into the main entrance for GTM and through the $3 pay station drive all the way through the area to the dead end or "tree line" where the trails start. Park there and you will note a restroom on the right at the beginning of the trail and a kiosk with trail information. The yellow trail is marked and you simply walk straight down that trail until it dead ends at the Intracoastal. There is good birding along the way. The trails are dry right now but it is a little buggy.


Please feel free to email me if you have questions and let me know when you might be in the area.

Is there anything that has a very similar song to a White-Throated

singing at Wekiva Springs State Park today. It was coming from behind the
horse corral at around 5:30 PM and repeated 6 times before it stopped. I was
never able to get a visual. Needless to say, I was excited to hear it, it's
just unexpected and I'm looking for any other explanation. I thought the

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Bald Eagles, Bobcat @ Circle B Bar
Hello Bird Fans out to Circle B this morning and I'm happy to report that
Rabbit Run west is now open. It was 7:15 when I started down Heron
Hideout. There was a bull gator calling a short distance to the west, it
sounded like somebody trying to kick-start a motorcycle that wouldn't
start. There were 5 Mottled ducks in the first pool to the east, the first that
I've seen out there. There was a pair of Eagles in a dead tree in the line of
trees that borders the south end of the marsh, also FOS for out there. A
Red-shouldered hawk came gliding by and suddenly dropped down landing
on the trail. The hawk picked up the small black stone that's in the bottom
right corner of image 1, the one that's in the shade, and flew up in the line
of oaks where Rabbit Run meets Heron Hideout 50 yards away. As I walked
up the hawk flew down and picked up another little black stone from the
trail and flew back up in the oaks, I never did find it. I wonder what the
hawk wanted the stones for?
Down Rabbit Run west I found a Sharp-shinned Hawk, Pileated
Woodpecker, Great Crested Flycatcher, Yellow-throated Warbler and Black-
crowned Night Heron. The birders that were a few minutes ahead of me
saw a Bobcat about a 100 yards before the intersection with Wading Bird.
They showed me the remains of a Limpkin it had eaten. Good Birding

Marblehead neck (50 minutes NE of Boston) on Sunday. We knew Mt. Auburn
Cemetery was famed as a spring, not fall migration hotspot. Still, we were
truly surprised by the absolute deadness of the place (yes, we were
expecting a lively time at a cemetery, but, hey, we're birders! :-) ). Best
bird was one, single Red-eyed Vireo. Also, zero warblers. Yes, that dead!

However, Sunday morning our fortunes improved greatly at *Mass Audubon's
Marblehead Neck Wildlife Sanctuary* (
http://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/marblehead-neck)
where we finally found birds (+ birders)! This small, but beautiful and
apparently productive hotspot was packed because someone had reported a
Hooded Warbler (a big deal up in Northeastern Massachusetts). While we
cheered everyone on in their hunt for the Hooded, we searched for the
Canada, Wilson's and Bay-breasted Warblers that had also be spotted and
were much higher up on our warbler wishlist. Well, we somehow wound up
missing all the Canadas (this is getting to be a real nemesis bird for me),
but we did get very good looks at a *Wilson's Warbler* (and poor looks at
what was undoubtedly a Bay-breasted, but which remained officially
unticked). Life bird!!

And here is where the "interesting ID experience" comes in:

I knew exactly what a Wilson's Warbler looked like on the pages of
Sibley's, Crossley's etc. I was expecting to find a Wilson's -- it had
been reported on eBird and we had birders telling us: "Yes, there's one in
a flock just a little ways down the trail." And still, I almost mis-IDed
it. It was a female and to my eyes, it really looked very much like a
Yellow Warbler. So much so that I called "Yellow" and only realized it was
a Wilson's when I went to look at the tail for confirmation (it relatively
long and all-dark; not yellow).

I had been expecting the dark cap to be more obvious (it was not). I was
expecting the Wilson's to be foraging relatively low (it was way up in an
Oak which would have made it difficult to see the cap -- even on a male). I
knew that the Wilson's Warbler was more active than the Yellow, but this
only became obvious to me after I had seen the tail and the ID had clicked
into place.

So, for everyone else out there who is still a relative newbie like me (not
all those experts who know damn well what a WIWA looks like :-) ), I just
want to say: Always remember to check the tail on Yellow Warblers -- no
matter how much the bird looks obviously like a Yellow. You never know, it
might be something a little more interesting!

Happy Birding!

Good morning,

Yesterday, late morning, after an AM rain a good number of migrants dropped
in to Sawgrass Lake Park in north St. Petersburg. They remained throughout
the afternoon and most were seen in the oaks above the main parking lot
stretching back to the turnaround circle at the end of the road.

The flock consisted of Blackburnian Warbler (15 or so), Cerulean Warbler
(at least three), as well as the more expected Prothonotary, Ovenbird,
Yellow, Worm-eating, Northern Parula, Yellow-throated, Prairie and
Black-&-white. Also on hand was a Baltimore Oriole, a few Red-eyed Vireos
and a couple of Summer Tanagers.

"This just came across a couple of listservs from Scott Weidensaul:

"I'm sorry to have to share the news that Bob Sargent passed away last
night, at home with Martha and their family in Trussville, AL. The
complications from his post-operative infection became increasingly serious
last week, and it's been clear for several days that the end was close. But
it's still a tough, tough loss.

There will be a celebration of life rather than a funeral in the coming
weeks, and the family will let Bob's many friends and colleagues know when
that will be as soon as the arrangements are made. If you'd like to let
Martha know she's in your thoughts, the address is: 7570 Mack Hicks Rd.,
Trussville AL 35173.

Bob touched an awful lot of people, including me, who feel this loss keenly
as a teacher, colleague and friend. Few people have been as tireless in
promoting the study and appreciation of hummingbirds as Bob, or fought
through as many hardships and tragedies in a long and eventful life. I find
it hard to believe he's gone. As I told Martha's daughter Donna this
morning, I'd like to think that somewhere, Bob's banding his first Bogota
Sunangel about now.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] American Golden-Plovers. Wilson's Phalarope. Flagler Co.
Late this afternoon, 9/7, I drove out to some agricultural and sod fields in Flagler County. I found 4 American Golden-Plovers together in one field. This field was a cultivated field with almost no vegetation on it that was very wet and partially flooded from the heavy rains we have had for the last couple of days. There were many shorebirds on this field, including dozens of Killdeer, a few Semipalmated Plovers, at least twenty Black-bellied Plovers, many Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, lots of Least Sandpipers, one Semipalmated Sandpiper, several Pectoral Sandpipers, one White-rumped Sandpiper, and one Wilson's Phalarope was spinning in a flooded pool.

Three of the American Golden-Plovers were nearly in complete alternate plumage still with lots of black even on the under tail coverts. One bird had molted into largely basic plumage. Be aware that there are many Black-bellied Plovers in this field when trying to find these birds. This field requires a scope. I have included one very very distant and poor digiscoped photo.

This field is located on Rt 305 about 1/2 mile south of the intersection with rt 304 on the east side of rt 305. Note that there is a bridge out on rt 305 between rt 100 and this field. You cannot take rt 305 off rt 100 to get here now. Therefore, you have to access this location from Rt 11 or from rt 17. From Rt 11 take rt 304 until it dead ends at rt 305. Turn south (left) on rt 305. The field will be on your left in about 1/4 mile. It is the field just north of the large sod field.

This morning we kicked off the fall banding at Dunedin's Hammock Park. It was a very slow day with few birds caught be the highlights were a female Northern Parula and a female Blackburnian warbler (in our new canopy net). John Hood devised a neat canopy net to allow us to get one of the nets 20' up off the ground so we are eager to see how that effects our results. Check out Dave Noel's blog for great photos of the warblers: http://davebrd05.wordpress.com

The banding is open to the public from 8 am to noon. The dates are below and we hope to see many of you out there this season!

Hi BirdBrains,

We birded Joe Overstreet Road today, and truthfully, it was more of a
butterfly day than a bird day. However, the best bird of the day was a
Whooping Crane, about half way down the road, very far off on the south side
of the road. We did see 2 Crested Caracara, 3 B. Eagles and a flock of
Bobolinks.

Good Birding,

All,

While doing a bird survey today, on private property, I had 6 Wilson's Phalaropes. Also of interest were two Pectoral Sandpipers.

While these birds are in an inaccessible area, I wanted to get the word out that they are around the Tampa Bay area. The birds seem to have showed up in correlation with high tide, so it might be a good idea to check any high tide shorebird congregation spots.

Hi All,

Wendy Meehan and spent an hour and 45 minutes here from roughly 800-945 AM
and did not see any sign of the previously seen Wilson's Phalaropes. Here,
however were our highlights:

Black-necked Stilt 5
Stilt Sandpiper 2
Pectoral Sandpiper 3
Red-headed Woodpecker 1
Yellow-throated Vireo 1 singing
Baltimore Oriole 1 FOS; singing/chattering immature male/female

I would like to mention that a spotting scope is highly needed here as the
birds can be distant and hard to see in the grass.

Also of note I detected 2 calling southbound Veeries migrating over my
house at 630 AM. These are the first for the fall so far, as there will be
many more calling predawn in the next 6 weeks,

Great Birding!!!

Good morning birding folks;

I had a great time at the Bailey Tract this morning and many surprises along the way. I saw many Ovenbirds and Prairie Warblers, there were also numerous Wrens, Gnatcatchers, Vireos and others that I couldn't identify for certain - some were in the small thrush family and some were in the flycatcher family. One of these days I'll be able to identify more....slowly but surely. It was fun and exciting to see and hear all this action this morning - got my juices running for migration, that's for sure.

I spent six hours today hiking three separate trails at Hillsborough River State Park. While I only had 34 species, there was good quality in the mix.

I found a Swainson's Warbler just east of marker 5 on the Florida Trail, three Acadian Flycatchers along the river, three Worm-eating Warblers, an Ovenbird, both Louisiana and Northern Waterthrush, Hooded Warbler and American Redstart. In the end I had eleven warbler species. My first birds after I rolled down the car windows on arrival were two pit-ti-tucking Summer Tanagers, which was a good sign.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Circle B Bar Limpkin colts
Hello Bird Fans another venture into the marsh at Circle B near
Lakeland. The birding was slow this morning but there's always interesting
things to see at Circle B. Heading south on Heron Hideout there were
several Wood Storks in the tops of the cypress at the beginning of the trail.
The open water to the east of the trail where over a hundred birds were
feeding last week is all dried up. I saw 2 Roseate Spoonbills, a small flock
of Blue-winged Teal, a Northern Parula, and at the end of the trail a Red-
shouldered Hawk was posing for photographers. There were only a few
swallows.
Rabbit Run west is still closed: this is bumming everyone out as this
stretch of trail is the best.
Over on Wading Bird there were a few Black-bellied ducks in the first
water to the east and then at the intersection with Rabbit Run I found 5
Limpkin colts.
Yesterday I went to South Lake Howard park in Winter Haven; there's
an extension of the park on the lake side of the road with a dock. At the
end of the dock 3 juv. Purple Gallinules were feeding in the sparse grass.
One of the young birds kept picking up dead reeds that were floating in the
grass and arranging them. Nest building practice I suppose. Good Birding

Hi Paul,

I have been fooled too many times by a WEVI. I am so used to their harsh,
fast notes. This slurr is long and soft, something I don't associate with
the WEVI but I better start "cuz I'm tired of gettin fooled".

Greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The link here is to a vocalization I heard today in Orange County on the Lake Apopka Bike Trail.

At the 13 second mark is the first down-slurred whistle and about four more, including one at the end of the 38 second clip.


I went over sounds of all passerines at "All About Birds" but could not find a match.

You will have to set your volume to max, but the slurr is audible. The down-slurr is accompanied by a few other sounds it makes.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

At SoundCloud, you will see a play arrow in the lower right corner.

Re audio ... I use a Sony digital audio recorder. For distant sounds, the internal mike causes a weak sound. If anybody uses a digital audio recorder and knows of a good external microphone (perhaps a shotgun mike) that works well, please email me directly.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Labor Day Holiday Weekend - LANSRA- C.R. 448A, Lake Apopka,Lake County , 1000 Plus- Magnificent Frigate Birds ! ! ! - Fort De Soto Park , Pinellas County , FL‏
Just a Short Report:

Over the Labor Day Holiday weekend on Saturday at Lake Apopka Restoration
Area usually has been just phenomenal for birding and this year was no exeption
but last year the Swallow-Tailed Kites were still here at this time of year and
weekend however this year it seems that the Swallow-Tailed Kites have all left
now for their wintering grounds in Brazil a couple of weeks early and there were
none to be seen here at all ! Some other interesting highlights here were some
4- 5 Roseate Spoonbills foraging in the canal along Jones RD, several Hawks that
were flying around including 3-4 Red -Tailed Hawks- some Red Shouldered
Hawks and a Juvenile Bald Eagle flying high & lots of Towhees and several types
of Swallows flying over and around the first bridge along Apopka trail after
leaving the parking lot at the CR-448A entrance and some Common Gallinules
and A Purple Gallinule Juvenile all hopping along the lily pads along the river !

On Sunday we decided to go over to Fort De Soto Park , in Pinellas County ,FL
which is a very special place to go birding in St. Pete and we just starting out
walking along the canal on the way to the park a couple of Roseate Spoonbills
were there working and foraging in the canal and several Monk Parrots were
seen flying and screeching in the air ! We stopped along several ponds along the
way to the park but at the last Duck Pond the most spectacular and wonderful
sight that I have ever witnessed all of a sudden started- just Call It Magic !
Several Magnificent Frigate Birds just appeared and more and more came in and
soon there were literally Hundreds and Hundreds at least 1000 Plus -
Magnificent Frigate Birds that were flying high overhead ! Then there were 2 to
3 separate Frigate Bird Kettles that had formed, one or two that went from
almost ground level all the way up well over 1000 FT and even higher ! It was
absolutely a breath taking sight to behold ! Some of the Frigate Birds actually
circled down low around the Duck Pond and came all the way down to the water
lever and were actually skimming along the waters edge itself ! Some flew very
close to where we were and their enormous size became quite apparent and
most looked twice the size of any Swallow-Tailed Kites ! This area in the sky was
just packed with these Magnificent Frigate Birds and the show went on and on
for over an hour and then they slowly drifted out to the bay ! A very famous
actor Tom Selleck has a Summer home nearby on this same lake ! Amazing !

The park itself was jam-packed with lots and lots of people all there everywhere
for the holidays and the beaches were completely packed as well. We walked
along the beach and came to some several shorebirds there including some
Oystercatchers,Reddish Egrets Black Bellied Plovers Piping Plovers , Skimmers
,Royal Terns and several Least Terns as well.

On Monday we went over to Sarasota to the world renowned Marie Selby
Botanical Gardens which is perhaps known best for its living collection of more
than 6,000 orchids and is also an established authority on other epiphytes
including bromeliads , gesneriads and various other plants as well ! It's just a
very cool place to go along the Bay of Sarasota !

Later we went over to the Celery Fields which is a very popular birding spot in
Sarasota where they have literally constructed a new mountain and mountain
top where there was none before and there they have planted lots of various
palms and evergreens and other trees along the top as well. Down below in the
Celery fields there were some Glossy Ibis ,Whistling Ducks along with Killdeer
and various other shorebirds. This is also the site of The New Sarasota Audubon
Nature Center that will be built on this site. There are more than 210 various
bird species that use this 300 Plus acre area known as The Celery Fields ! It is
said that this will probably become The New Florida Premier Birding Hotspot !
Very Cool ! Indeed ! All in all a very great birding Holiday Weekend !

Happy Birding !

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Flycatcher Fest day three (Orange, 2 Sep 2014)
Image attached ... early Gray Catbird --check out the feathering.

Image attached ... one Acadian Flycatcher watching a second Acadian
Flycatcher landing.

The Flycatcher Fest continued on the Lake Apopka Loop Trail, in its third
day. I posted 17 photos taken this morning at:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/idneeded/sets/72157647160246412/

Click the first picture to enlarge, then click enlarged image to advance to
next image, or use left/right arrows in black border.

The Empids are all Acadian Flycatchers, I presume (pale gray throat, smoky
wash upper breast, pale area below then yellowish to undertail coverts,
olive on top, most likely to be seen this time of year). Not much
vocalizing I detected but my recordings will be listened to.

Also, there is a sequence of three images of a Great Crested Flycatcher. It
picks off a stem of berries, but it apparently didn't like the unripe green
one. The stem gets tossed in the air, then a ripe blue berry is nabbed
from the same stem.

In one small five x five foot area, I have seen the following birds all
going after the same food in this confined space:

Gray Catbird (flagged rare by eBird)
Eastern Kingbirds
Great Crested Flycatchers
Acadian FLycatchers
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (1)--heard, possibly photographed and recorded
Saturday.

Empid ... still trying determine, maybe Least ... still have recordings and
photos to go over.

Yellow Warblers
Prairie Warblers
Northern Cardinals
Red-bellied Woodpeckers
Red-eyed Vireo

Other birds nearby visible, but these are the birds that wanted to get at
the berries (and insects) in this little space. As some dive in, others
fly out, returning the favor shortly later to the intruders. This is the
most passerine activity I have ever seen in one small space in the wild.

Notes ... a group of us went out to the 448A trailhead Sunday at Lake
Apopka. The bugs were unbearable, totally disregarding whatever amount of
bug spray we put on.

The Magnolia Park to the Pump House bike trail has not been buggy, but
always carry repellant.

We went to Fort Desoto this morning. Mostly quiet. Don’t bother going for Warblers around fountain. NOTHING there. One Cardinal and one Red-bellied Woodpecker. Peeps were good. We had easy access to them when you turn left at stop sign after pay station. This plover was there. Odd thing is to me is that the color looks grey. Beak seems large. But not sure why not brown tones. Am I right??

Hello,

A small American Pokeweed shub, no bigger than the width of your arms
spread, drew Empids, kingbirds, Great Crested Flycatchers, a Red-eyed
Vireo, a Downy and two Red-bellied Woodpeckers, warblers and a few other

pictures are taken adjacent to that plant as I tried to get photos of the
birds in the open.

"Group" are birds known to be the same bird, a "Solo" is not known to be
the same bird as any others.

If any species can be ID'd, please let me know.

C-2 shows a lot of yellow underneath. Would an Acadian have that much
yellow on the belly and undertail coverts?

A-1 shows the mouth lining orange. I know a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher has
a wedge shaped bill like this and the mouth lining is orange, but I don't
know what other flycatchers have that color in the mouth lining.

D-2 has a wide, wedge shaped bill and long, with a yellow wash on the belly
toward the undertail coverts like an Acadian.

I know kingbirds eat fruit occasionally, and they were eating these little
fruits too like the other flycatchers. Fruit was not listed as part of an
Acadian's diet but a few other Empids eat fruit occasionally.

One yellow warbler, labeled "Green" had green on its dorsum up to its
crown. There are northern populations that show green here. In a shadow,
Yellow Warblers look darker and a bit greenish, and in sunlight some are a
brilliant yellow. I show two other Yellow Warblers that are in the shadows
like the green one for color tone comparison.
