Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Cedar Keys, Levy County, April 29, 2017 - Wilson's Warbler
Early in the day the outlook was grim - heat, humidity & very few migrants. 
Around 1 PM we started seeing warblers.
By the end of the day we had 15 warbler species.
A few Scarlet Tanagers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Orchard Orioles and Indigo Buntings were also seen.

The best  birds of the day - a male Magnolia and a male Wilson's Warbler.

Couldn’t find any Swallow-tailed or Mississippi Kites this afternoon.
I did see a very animated Great-crested Flycatcher and gorgeous Eastern Kingbird.
Every day is a GREAT day to go birding!

Very handsome!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Cuban Vireo, Key Largo (private property)
Hi, BRDBRAINers. Late this morning I found and photographed a Cuban Vireo on private property in Key Largo. The bird was foraging low in hammock habitat. The bird did not give the typical call, although I believe I heard it give a few weak call notes.

The bird was looked for this evening and not relocated.

In general, migrant activity was low at this location today.

Sorry, but this bird was found on private property where I do not control land access and can not authorize visitors.

The influx of Caribbean birds in South Florida continues...

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Shorebird ID
Hi all, thanks to all those who have responded. So far we are evenly divided between Semi-Palmated, Western and Sanderling with one respondent opting for Least. However those who identified the birds as Sanderlings are correct! I was inclined to go with Western because of the black legs, APPARENTLY slightly decurved bills and rufous on the uppers but Sanderlings in breeding plumage have those attributes also. The clincher was the fact that on at least one of the birds where it is visible, there is no hind toe, which is a Sanderling trait. This was confirmed for me by the ebird reviewer in Illinois.
Thanks all for your help.
Roy Peterson, DeBary

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Tenoroc FMA, Bridgewater Tract - Screech-Owls, etc.
Bates Estabrooks and I wandered the Bridgewater Tract of Tenoroc Fish Management Area, in Lakeland, this morning. We were hoping, against the odds, that the Black-whiskered Vireo I saw there last spring would turn up again. Needless to say, that didn't happen. But we saw all the usual suspects and finished with a pretty nice list. Best birds were a pair of Eastern Screech-Owls that responded to playback, 5 Black-crowned Night-Herons, and a small flock of Cedar Waxwings. I also got my first Yellow-billed Cuckoos of the year - both males giving their incessant cooing song.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Least Terns - Lori Wilson
Yesterday's birding report.



1st stop - Lori Wilson Park, Cocoa Beach with Jeff Lamothe at noonish.

Saw cardinal, common grackle, fish crow. In parking lot saw a MODO. 4 bird
species in an hour.

Birds must have heard of Turkey Creek and gone there instead.



2nd stop - Motel 6, Cocoa Beach, 1 PM

Last year on April 20th due to a vantage point above the roof of Motel 6, I
reported 150 nests about 335 least terns.

A year and 8 days later.same vantage point, there were zero nests. On the
Motel 6 building closest to ocean and parallel to A1A, I saw 5 Least
Terns..no nest or attempt to nest. Just flitting. On the Motel 6 building
perpendicular to A1A zero Least Terns. Saw a lot of small brown mounds which
I THINK is what Florida Fish & Wildlife added to the roof earlier in the
month to aid nesting. Zero Least Terns on that building. Zero. Stayed for an
hour. Had scope plus binocs.

Thus, 335 and a year later 5 (probably a few more) - no nests.

Why could this be?

Persons viewing: Jeff Lamothe, Kim Jarvis, Tom Atkinson and me.

My only other thoughts are -all are around 6 in. except Sanderling is closer to 8in. and Least have more yellow legs in breeding plumage. Tough call. I hope this helps.

Hi all..... I have no idea why the pros out there are not answering this. Use to they would be all over helping birders with their id questions. I know what I think they are, but I would like to just help you out on figuring it out for yourself. I use Sibley's books. He is really good with his illustrations. On "peeps" I always look at the bill, and the feet, and the size/color to eliminate what the subject is not. Some of the shore birds are 8 inches long. (maybe longer) On Semipalmated, Western, and Least they are all pretty much under that 8 inches. Outside vagrants like the "Stints" it is pretty easy to figure out which peep you are looking at if you go by feet, bill, size, and color. Really look at the bills. Are they straight? Curved? ect... Are the legs long or short? What is the color of the legs? .... ect.. I've given you all about all I can to help identify subject birds without naming them. I think if you figure it out yourself then you can go to an expert and ask them for verification. If I knew where the experts were I'd give you the link, but they all apparently quit the list servs, and went to Facebook somewhere. I am no expert, but I hope I have helped you out in some way.

God Bless you

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Fwd: RFI: Alachua Ruff
I haven't seen any eBird reports on the Ruff since the 27th, so it may be
gone.

In addition to kayaking out and walking in from Kate's Fish Camp, people
have been seeing the Ruff in two other ways: (1.) by walking out the
fishing pier at Powers Park (5910 SE Hawthorne Road, Gainesville) and using
a spotting scope to scan the shoreline off to the right, and (2.) by
driving to Owens-Illinois Park on the eastern shore of Newnans Lake (11309
SE 16th Avenue, Windsor), going out to the lake front, and walking south.
So far all the Ruff sightings have been on the southeastern part of the
lake, between Powers Park on the south and Owens-Illinois on the east.

Janet,

You don’t need a kayak. Drive to Kate’s Fish Camp, which is just a bit
further east on highway 20 from Earl Powers Park and ask the owner for
permission to walk through his property to the lake shore. He’s a friendly
guy and understands your mission. He may even tell you stories about
Ruff’s. There is a path that follows the river (small stream) about 10 to
20 yards from the bank. When you near the mouth of the river there is a
good viewing spot on the bank. I saw the Ruff right away feeding along the
eastern bank of the stream. A bit later he disappeared behind some
vegetation so if not seen you may have to wait awhile. But there’s plenty
to keep you busy with lots of shorebirds and Prothonotary Warblers. Good
Luck.

It’s a bit further north but Harry Robinson (who’s been counting birds at Lake Apopka for SJRWMD for years) has been doing a sea watch at Tom Renick Park  <https://www.volusia.org/services/public-works/coastal-division/coastal-parks/tom-renick-park.stml>for several years and just published a book with last year’s observations. He’s there at least 4 mornings a week and welcomes company.

I think the undertail pattern would help ID it, but I don't have my Warbler

Perhaps someone has Whittle and Stephenson close by :-)

Daniel and Birdbrainers,

Playalinda Beach (Canaveral National Seashore) is one of the best spots on the east coast for sea watching.  The Eddy Creek crossover gives a good wide spot from which to watch and stay out of the way of beach goers.  It's great in the fall.  I'm not so sure about spring, but it should be good.

Hey BirdBrainers,

I've lived in Florida over 3 years and still have yet to do my first seawatch. It's not the most convenient thing for me, living smack in the middle of the state, but I think I'll have enough free time next week to pull it off. My question is...

Are there any reliably good seawatch locations in Brevard County? That's the closest stretch of the east coast to where I live. I'm hoping to get out there maybe Tuesday, May 2. So any help y'all can provide would be much appreciated :-)

I birded the Turkey Creek Sanctuary in Palm Bay this morning. The large numbers of warblers present the past two days have moved on, but it was a respectable day nonetheless. I ended with seven species and I had a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I did locate a Northern Parula nest with the adults feeding young. Interestingly, after two days of large numbers of Blackpoll Warblers, I saw none today. The warbler list follows:
Northern Parula;
Prairie Warbler;
Black-and White Warbler;
Black-throated Blue Warbler;
Cape May Warbler;
American Redstart; and
Ovenbird.
I also had two Swainson's Thrush.

I birded the Turkey Creek Sanctuary in Palm Bay this morning with Bill Haddad, Christopher Ferro, Camille Merrell and Claire Parros. It was a good day for migrants; we tallied ten warbler species, including at least forty Blackpolls and eighteen Black-and-White Warblers. Our migrant list is as follows:
Blackpoll Warbler;
Black-and White Warbler;
Common Yellowthroat;
Northern Parula;
Prairie Warbler;
Worm-eating Warbler;
Cape May Warbler;
American Redstart;
Black-throated Blue Warbler;

This afternoon, about 3:00PM, at Fort Desoto Park, we had the good fortune of seeing for our first time, the celebrity hybrid that The Cornell Lab of Ornithology calls an amazingly rare one-of-a-kind bird. It has even been given its own Latin name (Ardea herodias x alba). This very interesting bird was first reported back in July or August of 2016. Today's sighting location was at The North Beach protected lagoon area. Pretty neat!!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Turkey Creek Sanctuary (Brevard County) Day 2
The fall-out continues today at Turkey Creek. Although there weren't any
tanagers or thrushes that I saw, there are still 10 or so species of
warbler in the sanctuary. Black-and-white Warblers were still there in
large numbers, but by far the most plentiful bird of the morning were the
several dozen Blackpoll Warblers, just about on any trail. Redstarts and
Black-throated Blue Warblers are still scattered around, and we had several
Worm-eating Warblers as well. A lot of the action was near the Scrub Trail
and the jogging path out toward the west end of the sanctuary. The wide
boardwalk (i.e, the Creek Overlook) was more birdy today than yesterday.
Sadly, still no Yellow-billed Cuckoos.

I'll link my eBird list below.

In addition to starting off again with Bill Haddad, we were joined by Tom
Ledford for most of our morning. We ran into a few other birders, including
Sarah and Bella Muro, and we all got some good looks at good birds.

The Sand Pine and Turkey Oak trails are still closed for post-Matthew
clean-up, and the crews were felling trees near the entrance road, which
was blocked, so you may need to drive in through the community center's
parking lot when you arrive.

Tracey (the ranger) knows it's a tough time of year for trail closures, but
the clean-up and tree removal was a necessary safety precaution. Please
don't think it's OK to walk those trails just because you don't hear the
crews working. There may be equipment and tree debris around that is unsafe.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Agricola Mine Rd. - Bobolinks, Stilt Sandpipers, etc.
I also birded a fair chunk of Agricola Mine Rd. yesterday, northwest of Fort Meade. There are various small ponds/impoundments along the road that attract shorebirds when the water levels are down. Best birds were 7 Stilt Sandpipers and a flock of 60-ish Bobolinks, which at one point were ALL in the same small shrub. It looked more like a pile of birds growing out of the ground than a plant!
Anyway, I would say more, but I'm about to be late for a class I have to teach, so just take a look at my eBird list below for all the goodies :-P
(One other quick note: All the land along this road is owned by Mosaic, and they don't take kindly to trespassers. So if anyone else wants to bird this area, just make sure you STAY ON THE ROAD. And that goes for my previous post about District Line Rd. too.)

Black-necked Stilt  12
Semipalmated Plover  1
Killdeer  2
Stilt Sandpiper  7    Exact count. Slightly smaller and grayer than nearby dowitchers, with a shorter curved bill. Feeding actively in belly-deep water with the classic "sewing-machine" motion characteristic of this species and dowitchers.
Least Sandpiper  20    Very rough estimate. These guys were impossible to count, as they were constantly flying back and forth, in and out of my view.
Long-billed Dowitcher  20    Estimated. They were very active, flying from one spot to another, and there were Stilt Sandpipers mixed in, which weren't always easy to distinguish at long range and in belly-deep water.
Lesser Yellowlegs  6    None of the yellowlegs I saw were close enough to ID based on structural characteristics alone, but all of them seemed to be about the same size as the nearby dowitchers, so I'm calling them all Lesser. Kind of odd to see only one of the two species present. I have not seen a Greater at all this year.
Least Tern  2
Common Ground-Dove  3
White-winged Dove  3
Mourning Dove  1

European Starling  2
Black-and-white Warbler  1
Common Yellowthroat  1
Northern Parula  1
Palm Warbler  1
Eastern Towhee  2
Northern Cardinal  4
Bobolink  60    Seen flying together at one point, and then seen again about an hour later, all in a single small shrub. It was quite a sight! I counted 52 exactly, and when they flew out of the shrub, several more appeared that hadn't been included in my count.

Cowbird-sized, finch-like birds. Most of the birds in the flock seemed to be males. I only noticed 2 or 3 females. Males were mostly black, with a wheat-colored patch on the back of the head, white rump, and white wing patch. Bobolinks are not very common in this area, but they tend to migrate in large flocks, so if you see one, you're just as likely to see 100.
Red-winged Blackbird  7

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] District Line Rd. - GRAY KINGBIRD, migrants, etc.
I decided to skip out on my Kirtland's Warbler eBird blitz responsibilities yesterday and hit the phosphate mines in SW Polk County for shorebirds and such instead. I birded two locations heavily, one of which was District Line Rd., southwest of Fort Meade.
There's an old phosphate impoundment on the east side of the road that can often be very good for migrant shorebirds if the water levels are right. And about half a mile north of the impoundment, the road passes through a fairly mature oak hammock that usually produces at least a couple interesting migrant warblers.
Anyway, the water was up pretty high, and there were very few shorebirds. But there was the usual large crowd of terns and skimmers on the artificial beach. And on the west side of the road, perched on a dead snag was a very visible and cooperative Gray Kingbird. Seems like these guys have been turning up inland more often lately, but I suspect it's just a temporary anomaly and not indicative of any kind of long-term trend.
The other good bird of the day was a Blackpoll Warbler in the aforementioned wooded area.
Full eBird list (with exact locations & other details) below:

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Birding in Marion County
I went looking for Swallow-tail or Mississippi Kites this afternoon. I was driving around neighborhoods where I had both birds last spring.
I saw a nest in a tree and stopped to look at it more closely. I thought I saw something white in the nest, but when I got out of the car, it wasn’t visible.
I came back to the nest and saw a small white head. Excited, I hopped out of the car and took some pictures. What a disappointment when I saw an adult Red-shouldered Hawk in the nest with the chicks (3, I think). It was very cute!


First sighting of nest


THEN: I saw the adult Red-shouldered Hawk

In my travels I saw 2 American Kestrels. One seemed to be offering a tasty lunch to the other who refused it and flew off.

THEN, I saw 2 Mississippi Kites soaring .
Jumping out of my car I got a couple of bad shots:

I saw 3 individuals.


Every time I got back in my car to leave they would circle around again.
I will see them again in a couple of days.
Every day is a GREAT day to go birding!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Fallout Touches Suburban Clearwater Neighborhood
Had a great time birding in my suburban Clearwater neighborhood. The following mix of birds seemed to be around all day.

20 Indigo Buntings
3 Blue Grosbeak
3 Scarlet Tanagers
4 Rose-breasted Grosbeak
1 Blackpoll Warbler
3 Palm Warblers
1 Barn Swallow

My neighborhood is bordered by S. Lake Ave and Lakeview Road & Nursery Road. The county owns an empty lot on Parkside Drive next to a pond and near my yard. The lot has 2 large blooming silk oak* trees, some Surinam cherry* bushes, & lemongrass clumps in seed. The birds find them quite attractive. Weve had similar birds during other fallout events. It will be interesting to see if any of the birds stay around for another day or two. In the past they have.

The best part of the whole day was when two neighbors saw their first brilliant male scarlet tanager. Theyd been dabbling a bit with birding. Now I think they might be hooked!

*yes, invasive, but they were good today

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Pine Island migrants - Lee County

Yesterday, there was a Northern Waterthrush foraging on the banks of the shallow pond in the front yard. And all but one of the dozen Gray Catbirds that spent the winter here left. Today, there were two female Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, a Cape May Warbler, and an immature male Summer Tanager in the back yard. A Solitary Sandpiper made a brief stop at the pond. The most interesting behavior to watch yesterday and today was the way ten Indigo Buntings were feeding on white fountain grass seeds. They would leap up off the ground to land on the slender stalk holding the fluffy seeds and ride it to the ground. Then they tried to keep the seeds within reach, holding the grass down with one foot sometimes. Although we offer black oil sunflower seed and millet, the buntings chose the fountain grass seeds, even though they were more difficult to get to.
Additional migrants seen at a nearby preserve: a pair of Summer Tanagers, seven Eastern Kingbirds, and five Barn Swallows.

Hi All,

I had an hour and a half after work to enjoy the fall out. Had 3 rose-breasted grosbeaks, 4 blue grosbeaks and a Swainson's thrush feeding in the grass at the north end by the head of the osprey trail. Other notables were a Merlin, female Baltimore oriole, scarlet tanager (2), summer tanager (3) and an adult red-headed woodpecker. The red-headed was along the trail behind the bath house in the same area.

Happy birding!

I arrived earlier, and stayed later, than Cris and Camille – benefits of being retired – and was getting birds until I left (about 12). Added one Warbler (Prairie) to make 10 Warbler species for the day – Frank Auton came late and saw some of the same birds. Great numbers in various areas. Warblers seen:

1. Prairie (1)
2. Worm-eaters (4)
3. Black and Whites (25 +)
4, Cape Mays (3)
5. Blackpolls (5 got my glasses on – many others moving fast thru parking lot trees)
6. Black-throated Blues (20+) – only 3 females
7. Parulas (5)
8. Ovenbirds (6)
9. Redstarts (12)
10. Black-throated Greens (2)

I saw a Veery and called Chris and Camille, but it went off – they were still looking for one when I went looking for Ovenbirds, which they had seen. Glad to see they got one and, going toward the entrance, I did seen 6 Ovenbirds, and on the Scrub Trail, a second Veery. The Buntings and male Scarlet Tanagers were beautiful in the full sunlight and I know there must have been some Yellow-billed Cuckoos around – to find tomorrow!

Well, it's not the epic numbers from our West Coast friends at Ft. De Soto, but we finally had a decent run of birds at Turkey Creek Sanctuary this morning.

Camille and I went in before work and ran into Bill Haddad (again!). Much of the best birding was at the parking lot by the library and community center, but we had a few good things scattered throughout the property too.

The best bird, from my perspective, was a Black-throated Green Warbler FINALLY! This has been a sort of nemesis bird for me, but I got my lifer in the library parking lot today.

The bird of the day was Black-and-white Warbler - over 2 dozen, just about anywhere you looked. Also good to see my FOY Indigo Buntings and Summer Tanager.

were many Swallows including Barn Tree and I believe Bank, there were some

and I wonder what they were. Thanks for any help with the Id of this

This bird was seen at East Beach at the entrance to the trail closest to the water foraging on the ground. It flew away before I could get a better photo but hopefully someone out there can ID it.

This bird was seen at East Beach at the entrance to the trail closest to the water foraging on the ground. It flew away before I could get a better photo but hopefully someone out there can ID it.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Fork-tailed Flycatcher, Key Biscayne
Late yesterday, Rafael Galvez found a Fork-tailed Flycatcher on the Tequesta Trail at Crandon Park on Key Biscayne. These birds are notorious for not sticking around very long, so I wasn't surprised when it was not seen again this morning. At around 2:30, I got a message that it was relocated at Crandon Gardens 1 mile to the south. I arrived after 4:00 and the bird was very cooperative. With the Fork-tailed, the list of rarities in South Florida in recent days is off the charts. Just since this weekend we've had the Fork-tailed Flycatcher, 3 Bahama Mockingbirds, at least 3 Western Spindalis, 2 Bananaquits, a La Sagra's Flycatcher, and a Thick-billed Vireo found this afternoon near the area where the Fork-tailed was seen yesterday. Earlier in the month we also had a Cuban Pewee at Bill Baggs, a Loggerhead Kingbird in Hialeah, a Least Grebe in Palm Beach, and a Cuban Vireo in Key West which could be the same one seen last year. What's causing such an influx of Caribbean vagrants is unclear, but Larry Manfredi suspects it could be due to damage done by Hurricane Mathew which has caused this birds to disperse in search of food.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] RUFF Newnan's Lake/ Alachua County 04-24-17
Hi All!

Don Fraser and I easily scored the RUFF off the end of the boat launch
within 5 minutes just after 700 AM. The bird was quite distant, but EASILY
seen through the use of a scope. Was present with a group of 100+ other
shorebirds including Long-billed Dowithchers, both Yellowlegs species and
Least Sandpipers. No Photos however with my point and shoot.

A kayak or canoe would be needed to get photos, however if you want to
spend 90 minutes walking south from the boat launch on the east side of the
lake (Owen-Illinois Park) it may be worth it, as this is a spectacular
looking bird in partial breeding plumage!!

Great Birding and good luck!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] indigo Bunting in North Tampa
We live on Countyline Road, east of I 75. Had an Indigo Bunting visit our bird bath at about 4:40 pm today. Last week we had a brief visit from a American Redstart in the oak head behind our house. I guess the wind has helped us as these are 'life yard birds". We also have had 2 Northern Parula for about a month. They are frequent visitors to the bird bath. The champions of the bird bath are the 4 Gray Catbirds as there is one coming in the morning, one at noon and often one between 4 and 6 pm. I did get pictures of the 'full blue" Indigo Bunting.

Also seems to be good reports for Fort De Soto today. The weather has been in favor of the birds.

Both birds were photographed today at Crandon Park on Key Biscayne. The
TBVI was found about 100 yards north along the Osprey Trail (Crandon Park
North Beach) while the FTFL was in the Crandon Gardens (Crandon Park South

being found at about 10am but the flycatcher was actively hawking insects
when I left at 5:45pm.

Ken and I birded Smokehouse Bay Preserve (Bokeelia) today. This 20/20 preseve is filled with shrubbery and a variety of native plants and also supports many insects and grasshoppers of all sizes.We were there mid-day, so it was relatively quiet, but we did get to watch a Gray Kingbird and a Western Kingbird hawking insects together.

Janet, your post solved the mystery of a bird I've heard from my backyard (south Sarasota County). I didn't know the Eastern Towhee was resident here, much less that its song could vary from the familar tones of the "drink your tea" song I heard in Michigan. I found the song that positively identified it on the Audubon online field guide. It was exactly like the first song in the link to five variations, and in the link to song variant. It was interesting to learn that down here, the bird may have white eyes. Now I'm hoping it will find my backyard, where there's lots of leaf litter from the big water oak!

Stopped by at midday to see if the strong east winds had blown any terns in. This is a large, artificial lake 1.25 miles from Biscayne Bay, and when the winds are strong from offshore we get some cool birds blown in. I was expecting gull-billed or common, but was surprised to find 2 Arctic Terns. I've seen Arctic Tern from shore before, but this is the first time I see them over an inland, freshwater lake. The lake has a lot of fish, and I could see them catching stuff regularly.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Ruff in Gainesville, Alachua County
Alachua County's second-ever Ruff has shown up in the same place its
first-ever Ruff did, at Newnans Lake on the eastern edge of Gainesville.
The water level has been dropping there, and Gainesville birder Matt Bruce
has been going out in his kayak to document the large numbers of shorebirds
congregating in the shallows along the eastern shore. This morning I went
with him, and as we paddled north from the Prairie Creek inlet toward the
Windsor boat ramp, among the Long-billed Dowitchers, Lesser Yellowlegs, and
Least Sandpipers, we found a beautiful black and white and gray Ruff. Matt
got an excellent photo:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/7553931@N02/33370716843/in/datetaken/

He took the photo at the location shown on this map:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1z-aoLeZBoIVTv3nGHNnGiSvI5kg&usp=sharing

I'm not sure if any of this is useful information, since the location is
most easily reached by kayak, launching from Powers Park, 5910 SE Hawthorne
Road. You'll want a boat with a shallow draft, since the water is less than
a foot deep along much of the eastern shore.

For the past three days, a lovely male Cape May Warbler has been refueling on nectar from the blooms on a huge century plant right next to the deck.

Hello Birders.
On my way out to Circle B Bar Reserve this afternoon and a 1/4 mile
from the entrance to the reserve I found a gathering of 25+ Swallow-tailed
Kites hawking insects above the Cypress Trees. On Winter-Lake Road ( 540 )
just East of the reserve there's a boat ramp on Saddle Creek where it
enters Lake Hancock and the Kites were wheeling around over the tops of the

clear-cut goes through a mature cypress stand.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Pinellas County Brown Boobies Stay Continues To Amaze
Eight months and counting! Tonight, Tuesday, about 6:00PM, all twelve were coming and going from their favorite platform tower roost in Safety Harbor Bay. The easternmost tower is usually where they can be found from the south end of Philippe Park. Of interest is the fact that there are now five active Double-crested Cormorant nests on this same tower. According to Bill Pranty's "Birds of Florida", even though Brown Boobies can be found regularly 275 miles due south by the way the crow flies, in the Dry Tortugas, they are not known to nest anywhere in Florida. Maybe they don't know this!

day from 7-3:30 for about 1.5 weeks, they told me. I was distressed this
was happening during migration. They let me walk through during their lunch
break.



The Black-whiskered Vireo(day # 11!) and the Red-eyed Vireo were both
working the Gumbo Limbo on SW end of Hammock. I also found the following

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Arctic Tern. Whimbrels. Purple Sandpiper. Disappearing Island. Volusia Co.
Today, 4/17, I did a shorebird survey with Jennifer Winters, Eli Schaperow and Luddy Lambertson in Ponce de Leon Inlet. On Disappearing Island, we found an adult Arctic Tern near a Common Tern for a good comparison. The Arctic Tern had very short legs, short neck, tail feathers that extended beyond the wing tips, the black cap extended farther down on the face, pale primaries, a shorter all red bill, a steep forehead, darker underparts and strong contrast with the white cheeks. On the photo, note the Common Tern with long legs on the right and the short-legged Arctic Tern on the left. Unfortunately, we could not get very close before it flushed.

We also found 3 Whimbrels and - very odd - we had a Purple Sandpiper out on this open sandbar. We also had Least, Semipalmated and Western Sandpipers, Short-billed Dowitchers, Greater Yellowlegs, Dunlin, Sanderlings, Ruddy Turnstones, Red Knots, as well as Black-bellied, Wilson's, Semipalmated and Piping Plovers.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] SCAS bird walk at Turkey Creek this a.m.

Approximately 15 participants showed up for the SCAS bird walk this morning despite few migrants being seen on the east coast of Fla. For the last four or five days. The group, veterans and beginners alike, birded hard and until about 10:30. The great majority of the few birds seen were on paths adjacent to both sides of the “field” where I have seen them in recent days and, as in the last week, almost none on the boardwalk. Best bird of the day by far was the Nashville Warbler, close to where I had seen it on two recent trips. Other birds seen {from memory as I am writing from Tampa – participants please feel free to add some I may miss):

1. Mourning Dove
2. Ground Dove
3. Black and White Warbler
4. Parula Warbler
5. Bald Eagle
6. White-eyed Vireo
7. Blue-headed Vireo
8. Black Vulture
9. Common Grackle
10. Wood Stork
11. Mottled Ducks
12. Catbird
13. Cardinal
14. Carolina Wren
15. Cattle Egret
16. Piliated Woodpecker
17. Red-bellied Woodpecker
18. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
19. Osprey
20. Purple Martin
21. Blue Jay

Despite a very slow day for this time of year, the event was made more enjoyable by good and intrepid participants. Thanks to all.

At 7:20PM, the Whimbrel was completing Day 4 of its visit at Courtney Campbell Causeway Beach. At 7:30PM, 3.5 miles to the northeast in Safety Harbor Bay, the 12 Brown Boobies were ending another day of the eight month saga on their favorite platform tower. At 7:40PM, three fourths of a mile to the northwest, one of the adult Horned Owls was serenading from the top of a tree, in the end of the day sunshine at Philippe Park. What a delightful way for another day in birders paradise to end.

I am aware I reported this Pinellas County Whimbrel earlier today, but was definitely amazed to see it still there tonight at 7:45PM, with the beach at full human capacity, and waverunner watercrafts terrorizing close to shore. The Whimbrel was about 250 feet to the west along the sandy mudflat shoreline, easily seen with a scope, along with another twenty plus bird species. Of additional interest was a single female type Bufflehead close to shore in the bay. Today is at least day #3 of this large, long downcurved bill, beauty's, initial visit to this location. Hope to see it again tomorrow!

Hello birders: Thanks to a bicyclist and 2 other birders I was able to capture photos of the Swainson's warbler yesterday. The Hogstown Creek Greenway in Gainesville has many boardwalks and not being familiar with the greenway I definitely needed help, so thanks to all. Also went birding at Sweetwater Wetlands looking for the elusive male Blue Grosbeak, no such luck. A whooper was sighted a couple of days ago, but not by me. Went to Pointed Palms Nature Park and saw 21 white pelicans floating around with snowy and great egrets on shore, many cormorants and gators. Just a great day to be outside.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] More migrants on the yellow tabebuia Orange County
Hi again birders

There was much bird activity this morning on the blooming yellow tabebuia. There was a small flock of goldfinches (about 6) including a gorgeous male in breeding plumage. There were male and female Baltimore and orchard orioles. About 5 orioles in total. While scanning I discovered a very well camouflaged prothonotary warbler who stayed on the tree almost all day. Also present were northern parula, prairie warber, and palm warbler. When the tree was at it's fullest with birds, suddenly they all scattered... a smallish hawk swooped onto the scene. It happened so fast, I couldn't identify the hawk nor see if it caught a bird. I'm guessing it was a sharp-shinned hawk. In the late afternoon male and female Cape May warbler arrived.

The blooms are waning so I'm sure the bird show will be over soon.

Happy birding

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Turkey Creek Sanctuary / Brevard County notes
By the way, if you're visiting Turkey Creek Sanctuary, they are doing some
overdue Hurricane Matthew clean-up. The ranger, Tracey Wright, got some
grant money for it and is trying to get things done. It's a little
inconvenient for peak migration month, but if we work with her and the
parks department, it'll be fine - there are plenty of paths and boardwalks
to enjoy.

She plans on having one trail per week closed for clean-up. This week it's
the Sand Pine Trail (the train running along the northern side of the
sanctuary). They'll be making decisions on which ones to close when as they
get more clean-up done, but there is (and will be) a sign by the entrace
gate telling which trail is closed.

PLEASE HEED THE SIGNS. The clean-up involves chainsaws and some
not-quite-toppled trees and is dangerous. I saw people today who had
clearly decided it was fine for them to stroll through that trail despite
the sign. The trails will be closed for your safety and to allow the work
crews to get done as quickly and safely as possible. That can't happen if
you ignore the signs.

Also, if you smoke, put everything out and properly disposed of BEFORE you
step foot on the property. That includes the area leading up to the nature
center. There's been a high fire danger of late, and the sanctuary is not
fire managed. There is a ton of brush and such (fuel) everywhere. Be safe
and enjoy the fresh air.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Orchard Oriole song @Turkey Creek Sanctuary / Brevard County
Bird activity has quieted down after last week's bump, but got my first
Florida Orchard Oriole (finally!). I heard what I at first thought was a
Baltimore Oriole song (or a few notes thereof), but I realized it was less
"whistly" and more "chirpy". On a hunch, I played the Orchard Oriole song
from my iBird Pro app so I could compare it to what I heard. The volume on
my phone was up more than I thought, and the recorded song rang out. Before
it was even done playing, I got a song-response back. Then another after
the recording stopped. This was at the end of the last overlook on the
Creek Overlook boardwalk, at the bench commemorated to Bill and Shirley
Hills. I possibly heard a few more distant notes as I passed the Tree House
overlook, but I wasn't 100% sure of those.

Otherwise, there are still some Red-eyed Vireos hanging around, as well as
the usual gnatcatchers, cardinals, catbirds and Carolina Wrens. I had one
White-eyed Vireo and a few Northern Parulas. No migrant warblers this trip.

Tonight from 7:00PM to 7:45PM, we observed the first Whimbrel we have ever recorded at this eastern Pinellas County location on Old Tampa Bay. Thanks to Ron Smith for alerting us, and to Colin Gjervold for finding this beauty in our neighborhood. Upon our arrival, we found that the Whimbrel, along with hundreds of other shorebirds, had moved to the west along the sandy mudflat shoreline because of all the human activity on the drive-on CCC Beach. Upon our departure, the Whimbrel was still there.

For anyone who might be interested, the Black-whiskered Vireo and the Swainson's Warbler were present in Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach today. The Swainson's Warbler was located by Phyllis Mansfield and Audrey Whitlock on the section of the boardwalk that runs parallel to
Hwy A1A. We re-located it in the same area an hour or so later. The vireo is at or near the Gumbo Limbo tree on the south side of the boardwalk. There is also a Red-eyed Vireo in the same area, so use care. Good luck to anyone looking for those birds!

Hi Birders

Every year when the neighbor's huge yellow tab blooms, I find orioles in it. They must love the insects that the flowers attract. In the past, I've had orchard and Baltimore orioles in it at the same time. Today, I woke up with the goal of finding them since it's in full bloom. When outside and immediately spotted male and female Baltimore. So don't just admire those gorgeous trees, grab the bins!! Anyone else noticed this? I rarely see other migrants in it, although the parulas love it also.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Good birds at Turkey Creek Sanctuary this morning

The birds found there the last two days were still present, perhaps in greater numbers. Warblers I saw:

1. Prairies (8), very conservative estimate because of widespread flocks that intermingled.
2. Parulas (7) and many more heard only.
3. Nashville (1)
4. Black and Whites (6)
5. Am. Redstart (1)
6. Yellow-rumped (1)
7. Worm-eating (1)

The great majority of these birds were in corridors directly leading to the tower. Other birds of note seen included Swallow-tailed Kite, Red-tailed and Coopers Hawks, vocalizing Blue-headed and White-eyed Vireos as well as many Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and some Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Met Jim Armstrong and Phyllis and Audrey who saw many of the same birds. The boardwalks did not have much activity, although I did get a Summer Tanager on the wide boardwalk late yesterday.

The last two times I've been to Marshall Hampton Reserve, I've heard a rail call that I need some help with. My plan is to get a recording sometime next week (hopefully it will still be there), but in the meantime I think I have enough information that someone can probably make an ID based on my description. I originally reported it as a King to eBird, thinking that it was too late in the year for Virginia, but I now see from eBird that they stay at this latitude until about the middle of April.
Anyway, here's the lowdown: It's definitely the grunting call of a rail - the one that sort of sounds like a cross between a quacking duck and a Red-bellied Woodpecker. I've heard the call 5 times over my last two visits to Marshall Hampton, coming from a large reedy area. Every time I've heard it, it's been exactly the same - a descending, evenly-paced series of 5 or 6 grunts. It never speeds up at the end, and it always descends in pitch.
I've read in several places that Kings typically don't descend and typically DO speed up at the end, so that has me leaning toward Virginia. Does anyone know how reliable that is?
Thanks!

Hello everyone:

Once again I am going to attach a photo of a high-flying bird, hoping you all can help on the ID.
And hoping I am right. Is this a Mississippi kite? It sure looked like one to me. And just a photo
or two of some cute Limpkin chicks. And I had no idea Anhinga chicks were white. Lake Parker
Park always has a surprise or two for me. Thank you to all.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Birding Adventure Today..
The day began early today(5 am) for Audrey and me, with a trip to Palm Beach
and Yamato Scrub Sanctuary: Florida bird for Audrey and year bird for me.
Didn't take long to see that LEAST GREBE, often next to the Pied-billed
Grebe, who seemed to want to persuade the Least to move on. But the Least
held his water space, turning often to show us his bright yellow eye!



Wakodahatchee Wetlands was a marvel today with dozens of new little ones in
hundreds of nests being fed by caring adults.

Special for us were the nesting Great Egrets, Glossy Ibis, Green and
Tri-colored Herons, Cattle Egrets, Anhingas and Wood Storks. I don't ever
remember seeing so many Wood Storks there before! The young were making a
big racket! Gray-headed Swamphen, Purple Gallinule and Black-bellied
Whistling-Ducks were expected and obvious. A Black-crowned Night-Heron
diligently consumed a water snake.



A fantastic ending to the day was a stop at Lori Wilson in Cocoa Beach. I
predicted a bad migration this spring since "Matthew" left much destruction
in the Hammock. Today, at least, I was wrong. Here's the list in a bit over
an hour:



Lori Wilson Park, Brevard, Florida, US

Apr 7, 2017 5:16 PM - 6:34 PM

Mourning Dove 5

Ruby-throated Hummingbird 1

Red-eyed Vireo 1

Black-whiskered Vireo 1 Thought there were two REVI, until we saw the
dark "whisker" on throat. Pale yellow rump and sides. On left side of split
in boardwalk near the Gumbo Limbo( favorite tree of this specie), south side
of Hammock.

Fish Crow 2

Gray Catbird 14

Worm-eating Warbler 2

Louisiana Waterthrush 1 Walking around pond, even in presence of
raccoons!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Modest warbler incursion cont. + Nashville Warbler! Turkey Creek Sanctuary / Brevard County
Hey 'Brainers!

The warblers are still sprinkled in mostly the western side of Turkey Creek
Sanctuary. This morning, Camille and I cannot confirm or deny we delayed
our work day to check out the birds on this cool, beautiful morning.

We had more of the same species as yesterday - Prairie, Black-and-white,
Palm, Black-throated Blue, and Pine Warblers, as well as American
Redstarts. We had our FOY Red-eyed Vireos, too. I also saw my FOY Scarlet
Tanager. A few other species were in the mix as well. I'll link our eBird
list at the end of this e-mail, if you're interested.

But the big deal of the day was a Nashville Warbler, east of "the field" on
the north side of the trail. It was a small, gray-hooded, olive-backed
warbler, with a white eye ring, yellow from throat to belly, a small area
of white before the vent, and yellow undertail coverts. No wing bars. It
was foraging low to medium height above the ground in the bushes and trees.
There was a female Common Yellowthroat in the area, too, which provided a
good comparison.

For those who might not know, the "field" at Turkey Creek Sanctuary is an
area of *really* tall and (to me) a little bit intimidating, grass plants
as the jogging trail turns east, back toward the park entrance/exit. I hope
I am explaining that right.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Marshall Hampton Reserve / Panther Point Trail - Waterthrushes, waxwings...
Yesterday I finally got my first opportunity to walk the new Panther Point Trail, which comes out of Marshall Hampton Reserve, west of Winter Haven. Marshall Hampton is a great birding spot anyway, and the new trail adds some different habitat to what's already in the reserve. Between the two, I would say this is probably the 2nd-best place to bird in Polk County now, behind (obviously) Circle B Bar Reserve. And Marshall Hampton is probably the BEST place to see Bald Eagles in the county, including Circle B. Even at Circle B, they don't fly around the parking lot!
Anyway, I spent a few hours there and finished with 60 species, including two Northern Waterthrushes and my first Cedar Waxwings of the year. We don't get much of a spring warbler migration this far inland, but I've found that shrubby wetlands are pretty reliable for Northern W-thrush (Louisiana not so much) in both spring and fall.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] "Anting" Owl @ Circle B Bar Reserve
Hello Birders.
Out to Circle B Bar Reserve Southeast of Lakeland yesterday afternoon
from 4:30 till 8:00; it was warm and windy.
Best Birds: 1 GREAT HORNED OWL, 2 BARRED OWLS, 2 BALD EAGLE, 25+
ROSEATE SPOONBILL, 5 BLACK-NECKED STILT, 8-10 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER, 2
LESSER and 5 GREATER YELLOW LEGS, 25+ BLUE-WINGED TEAL, 2 MOTTLED DUCK, 2
WOOD DUCK, 1 PAINTED BUNTING, 2 BLACK and WHITE WARBLER, 2 COMMON
YELLOWTHROAT, 1 BLUE-HEADED and 1 WHITE-EYED VIREO; also Palm and
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Wood Storks.
Just a few yards from the parking-lots I found a Barred Owl lying
spread eagle, flat as a pancake, in the narrow trail. I thought it was
injured but the bird was just sunning, Anting I suppose. I've seen several
species of songbirds do this but it's the first time I've seen a raptor do
this. When I first spotted the owl it was only 15 feet away and looking at
me and when i took another step it flew up in a tree and started preening
showing no sign of injury or distress.
The marsh is drying out and the waders and shorebirds are moving from
one location to another as the pools dry out. Good Birding and God Bless.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] The Amazing Pinellas County Brown Boobies Continue
Today, Tuesday, about 4:45PM, a count of twelve easily seen Brown Boobies were lined up on the bottom horizontal cross bar of the easternmost platform tower in Safety Harbor Bay. My viewing site was the south end of Philippe Park. The celebrities, appearing to be eight adults and four juveniles, were all facing to the west and the sun. This is the first time I have had all twelve side by side on the same cross bar. There were also three Double-crested Cormorants in the mix. From earlier data reported to me, it now appears that they have been being seen at this location since late August, meaning that they have been here going into month eight. How much longer can we expect them to stay? A good spotting scope is recommended.

Hi BirdBrains,
 
I was thinking about Murray today and thought of a couple good "Murray Stories".  The first was during Kevin Carlson's advanced shorebird class at the Space Coast Birding Festival.  The group was at the Pumphouse at Merritt Island, and we witnessed an adult Bald Eagle swoop down and pluck an Am. Coot from the group of coots along the shore.  The woman next to me said, "Oh!  Nature is so cruel!"  and Murray said, "Lady, have you ever eaten chicken?"  I cracked up!!
 
The second story was during spring migration, at Ft. De Soto.  We were gathered around a tree, and all were oogling a Cerulean Warbler.  The photographers were under the tree, swarming and jostling to get a shot.  Murray stepped forward and said, "All you photographers, you've all gotten your picture.  This lady is trying to see the bird...it is a life bird for her.  Move out and let this lady see the bird."  Everyone cleared out and Murray helped the lady find her life bird.  Pure Murray.  :8o)

All,

When I took part in the Nature Coast Birding Festival a few winters ago, I
had tried and failed several times to see a Seaside Sparrow. I met Murray as
our guide. When he learned that I was there hoping for that bird, he said,

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Murray Gardler
I was so saddened to hear that we have lost Murray Gardler. Murray was a fixture as one of the leaders on our pelagic trips for many years. It was always a great pleasure to have Murray on board. When Murray was no longer able to go with us, he would still relay emails to me about pelagic finds off of Massachusetts. What a great loss to the birding community.

Twenty years ago Murray and I led
some trips together for the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife
Festival.  In January of this year, just before the
festival, Murray called and said he was going to take me to
lunch.  We spent part of three days birding and
lunching.  I am thankful for his friendship and will
always remember the privilege of birding with him. This year
he wanted to see the Common Goldeneye,  Scissor-tailed
Flycatcher, and Common Eider.  He was so appreciative;
as I was appreciative of the Mangrove Swallow in 2002, and
the Harris Sparrow in March of this year.  When Jim and
I finally went for the Harris on 12 March, Murray sent me a
thumbs up the next day and sent his photos again of that
special bird. When I told him I was sending him a gold medal
for that bird/photos from his car, he replied with his
characteristically short response:  “lucky or
lazy”.  Murray told me about the cancer
diagnosis and said on a recent phone call, “Guess
I’m going to die sooner rather than later” .I
was thankful I could leave him with some hugs and
love.  I will miss him and will remember
those special moments with him.   Phyllis Mansfield,Cocoa Beach, FLEvery Day a New

I've known Murray for many years. He was always helpful and patient. He was a fully engaged birder up until the end! Last time I saw him was at the Sparrow Roundup at Weeki Wachee in January. I congratulated him, and marveled at his finding of the Harris's Sparrow on Kettering Road--a bird many of us got to enjoy. Sorry to lose my friend, but glad I had the opportunity to know him. He will be missed. Dotty Robbins

Murray pointed out my first, ever, Mississippi Kite in Hernando County (I think it was).
He had posted the birds on BRDBRAIN and, of course, I went to find them.
There were several that year in a tree, feeding young.
He took us to the place when we couldn’t find them on own.
I saw Murray many times over the years- alway friendly and inspirational.
Thank you, Murray, for lessons learned.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] RFI: Places to find Butterflies while Birding
Hello all,

A friend of mine is coming to Orlando during the second week of April for
vacation, and we're planning to do some birding together. My friend is much
more interested in butterflies than birds, though, and so we want to visit
places that will let him find some butterfly species he's never seen
before. He sent me a list of species he wants to see, and I was wondering
if any of you might know of some good places to find any of these species.
I took some guesses of places to visit based on the info he sent me, but
really I'm just shooting in the dark. If any of you are interested in
butterflies as well as birds, and if you have any advice on where to go to
find these, I'd greatly appreciate it:

Southern Cloudywing
Hilltops; Legumes
Possibility: Marl Bed Flats (I know there are plenty of legumes there)

Hayhurst’s Scallopwig
Low vegetation; Lambs quarter

Confused Cloudywing
Bush clover?

Sleepy Duskywing
Hilltops; Scrub Oak
Possibility: South Lake Conservation Area (Brevard Co)

Neamathla skipper
Marsh edges; grasses
Possibility: Orlando Wetlands Park (Orange Co)

Dotted skipper (rare)
Prairies, pine barrens, woodland meadows
Possibility: Hal Scott Preserve (Orange Co), Lower Wekiva River Preserve
(Seminole Co)

Meske’s Skipper
Sparse open woods and grassy places
Possibility: Hal Scott Preserve (Orange Co), Lower Wekiva River Preserve
(Seminole Co)

Baracoa skipper
Grassy places near marshes and streams
Possibility: Marl Bed Flats (Seminole Co)

Southern Broken Dash
Open places nears wooded rivers or swamps
Possibility: Hal Scott Preserve near Econ River (Orange Co)

Arogos Skipper
Undisturbed grasslands, prairies, sand prairies, serpentine barrens
Possibility: Hal Scott Preserve (Orange Co)

Byssus Skipper
Marsh edges; Eastern grama grass
Orlando Wetlands Park (Orange Co)

Aaron’s Skipper
Coastal salt marshes; Cordgrass?
Shiloh area of MINWR

Palatka Skipper
Marshes; Sawgrass Sedge

Berry’s Skipper
Marshes near ponds, canals
Possibility: Orlando Wetlands Park (Orange)


Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

A short time ago, about 9:30AM, 5 Least Terns were on the beach at this eastern Pinellas County location on Old Tampa Bay. These are our first of the spring at CCC Beach, even though we have had them nearby to the west at Bayview Avenue. During our short visit we had a total of 28 species of birds. With the tide seeming high, the earlier hard rain, and the present lack of human disturbance, shorebirds were numerous and everywhere the length of the beach.
