Subject: [BRDBRAIN] YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER; Aripeka Sandhills Preserve Pasco County; 09/24/16
Hi All,

Don Fraser and I scored a calling Yellow-bellied Flycatcher earlier this
morning at Aripeka Sandhills Preserve. After trying the tape (with no luck
luring the bird out), we stopping the audio, as it seems in my years of
experience, playing the tape for only several minutes is quite enough, as
if the bird wants to show itself, it will do so during that time.

Other noteworthy sightings of the 55 species recorded:

Red-headed Woodpecker 2 immature birds migrating south
Acadian Flycatcher 1 easily heard
HOUSE WREN 1 EARLY
Kentucky Warbler 1
CERULEAN WARBLER 1 adult female; LATE
Bay-breasted Warbler 1 fading male with still some bay on flanks
Palm Warbler 1 FOS

Great Birding!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Yellow Warbler Migration, West Pasco
Hello,

As in the last 6 years my records on the Yellow Warbler migration through West Pasco have proved out this year also. 9/14 through 9/23 are the days with the largest number of Yellow Warblers migrating through. This year I averaged 35 Yellows per day for that period while spending an average of 11/2 hours in the field. Along with Green Key, Lake Lisa Park has had some of the best numbers, especially at the north end as the Lead Tree grove there has grown. The yellows are feeding as they move through the Lead Tree top branches. Two photos attached of different "First Fall" birds from yesterday; one I will call golden as it is one of the brightest I have photo'd (aestiva?), the other is olive green (anmicola?).

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Pasco Flycatcher

I agree with others that from a western perspective, this bird is not a Western Wood-Pewee. Westerns are substantially and uniformly dark, usually across the entire breast, sides and flanks, and with a narrowly confined pale throat. However, Chris Benesh was on the right track when he suggested Contopus, as I don't see why it isn't an Eastern Wood-Pewee. Look at Ken Tracey's photo of the bird in which it is positioned facing to the left. The broadly pale throat, narrow eyering, olivey upperparts, shading on the underparts limited to the sides of the breast, long primary projection, and relatively short tail all look good for that species in the photo. Further, the median-coverts wingbar has that narrowly scalloped appearance that is common to juvenile Contopus. It also exhibits a hint of a third wingbar along the tips of the lower lesser-coverts which I also sometimes see in juvenile Contopus. Further, it isn't true that there is no overlap between Easterns and Westerns in terms of the darkness of the lower mandible. The Pyle guide is careful to use the term "usually" in the text in delimiting the average bill-color differences between the species. I haven't lived among Eastern Wood-Pewees, but per someone I consulted that has (fide Curtis Marantz), Easterns "can regularly have a mostly if not entirely dark lower-mandible." Also, what has been overlooked in comments about the bill is its overall relatively small dimensions, which clearly favors Contopus. As for vocalizations, I'm most familiar with those of Western, and they do give dull 'tip' calls with some regularity. I expect that call doesn't sound much different from the 'plit' call ascribed to Easterns in the Sibley Guide. In sum, I'm calling this an Eastern Wood-Pewee.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Central Winds Pk (Seminole)
After the report last night of a Wilson's Warbler, Central Winds Pk in Winter Springs, I met Lori Mathis there this morning. Search all morning long
without success. Probably due to the pressure washing of the playground. Saw many Northern Parulas and several Yellow Warblers, 1 Black-and-
White Warbler and a male Cape May Warbler. Also seen were many American Redstarts and 2 Ovenbirds. As we were leaving Lori relocated the Wilson's Warbler in the area that Graham Wilson had it last night. Just north of the playground before the main trail in the trees on the east side.
Unfortunately due to being so high in the canopy and the constant flitting no photos were taken.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] CIRCLE B BAR RESERVE 9/22/16 - ALL TRAILS OPEN
Hello Birders.
Out to Circle B bar Reserve Southeast of Lakeland yesterday from 7:30
till 11:00, it was hot and the birding slow. I'm happy to report that all
of the trails are now open.
Best Birds: 1 PROTHONOTARY, 3 PRAIRIE, 2 YELLOW and 1 NORTHERN PARULA
WARBLER also several Common Yellowthroats. 5 BALD EAGLES, 3 BLACK-CROWNED
NIGHT HERON, 3 BELTED KINGFISHER, 1 BARRED OWL
My friend Wally Barns photoed a Yellow-billed Cuckoo and a female type
Scarlet Tanager, a bird seldom seen at the B and for some reason Summer
Tanagers are also rare out there. Another friend Al Billings photoed a
Northern Waterthrush. The American Redstart is from my backyard, not a bad
yardbird. Good Birding and God Bless.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Alder Flycatcher, NO
As a recent transplant from Idaho, I would like to echo Larry's sentiments.
Does not look remotely like a WEPW. Another clue not previously mentioned
is their posture. A Western Wood-Pewee is a very upright bird when relaxed,
giving them something of an elongated look compared to an empid. This bird
is certainly a 'Traill's' flycatcher (I don't have any experience with
Alders as we only get Willows out west).

Hi all,
In my opinion, the photos taken by Ken Tracy of the flycatcher in Pasco
County do not resemble the Western Wood-Pewee seen, heard, and photographed
at Alafia River State Park in 2014 (accepted by the FOSRC 7-0). I compared
the shots to those I took at Alafia River and the two birds are not similar.
The Pasco bird has the overall appearance of an empid, not a Pewee. I
believe the observers were correct in their initial Id of an empidonax of
some type.

Ken, the bird in your photos appears to be either a Willow or an Alder Flycatcher. Years ago in Illinois we used the term Traill's Flycatcher to designate these hard to separate rascals. The only way I made a positive ID was by hearing the vocalization. Willows were by far more common but the Alder showed up once in a while. If this bird sounded like an Alder that's probably what it was.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Alder Flycatcher, NO
Allow me to wade in, as I would like to comment on this response to the “Alder” Flycatcher. Being an Oregonian, I am extremely familiar with Western Wood Pewees. The bird photographed as an Alder Flycatcher does not have the jizz nor the color of a W.W. Pewee. The western pewee is overall fairly dark, certainly darker than any Empy, has a longer tail, a slight crest or peaky head, and the head would be proportionately smaller. The photographed bird fits the Empidonax template better. Also, I would expect an out of range pewee to not choose the brushy wetland habitat of an Alder, but would be feeding in the canopy of tall trees, their customary habitat. This is not to say that an out of range bird would not choose an untypical habitat, but the usual habitat should be considered.

Cruising through web pictures of Alder Flycatcher, I find a small number of individuals with a yellow tip to the mandible similar to the bird in question. When I first looked at the photos of the bird in question, it looked unfamiliar to me. I thought that maybe it’s a Willow, but that it is probably an Alder. The plumage has a peculiar yellowish cast overall, which Willows lack to the same degree, and pewees never have that. Photos are tricky and real features are not always apparent, and they can be distorted. But these photos should be sufficient for the ID. If this bird is not an Alder, I can suggest no other.

This is my impression and I hope it is helpful.

Larry McQueen

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Possible Western Wood-Peewee
Below are the comments from an expert on Flycatchers printed with his permission.

Chris Benesh

"Hi Murray, I saw your post about the Alder Flycatcher on FB yesterday. This will sound crazy, but to my eye, this looks like a Contopus wood-pewee, not an Empidonax. The wings look really long (primary projection looks about as long as the tertials), and the pattern of the wing bars is pewee-like more than empid-like. The bird is a juvenile I think as it still shows a bit of a pale gape in one of the pictures. Based on the vocalizations heard, I wonder if Western Wood-Pewee should be seriously considered as the bill is quite dark. Just wanted to throw this all out there. I hope you are well and fine. Cheers"

The bill color he refers to is a match in PYLE(page 215) for the lower mandible that does not overlap with Eastern Wood-Pewee.

Again, Ken and I did not hear it vocalize.

Hi all,

I want thank Murray Gardler, as he made a very DILIGENT effort to ID this
bird.

The clincher was when I heard the bird twice, it gave a VERY similar call
to an Alder Flycatcher. The chances of getting a Western Wood-Pewee are
virtually 000% here in Florida.

I am VERY inexperienced with the species, as when I was 15 (36 years
ago!!!), I heard and seen them at Mount Rushmore, but that was a long time
ago!

Sorry for my posting that this was an Alder Fly, and again I thank Murray
for his research.

Was there again this late this morning and there was no sign of the bird.
It was oppresingly hot by that time and few birds were active.

The bird ID'd as Alder at EAGLE POINT PARK yesterday is probably a WESTERN WOOD PEEWEE. Ken TRACEY and I have compared photographs with the Gagne party and we have the same bird pictures but we did not hear the bird.

A western friend of mine called this to my attention based on my Facebook post. Take a quick look at the lower mandible and you will find the coloration does not match Alder but does match Western Wood Peewee according to the Pyle banding guide.

Hi All,

Don Fraser, Debbie Olavarria and I found a calling ALDER FLYCATCHER this
morning at this small county park in Holiday. It was seen, heard and
photographed and later in the morning, Ken Tracey and Murray Gardler found
the bird also!

The bird called only two times, but the call is diagnostic to me, as I grew
up with them in western New York.

I have a doctors appointment in the AM until roughly 1030, but would gladly
show anyone the bird if it still is hanging out!

Other Species of note includes the following:

Strauber Memorial Highway @ the "Rail Spot"

Least Bittern 2
King Rail 1

James Grey Preserve, New Port Richey:

Short-tailed Hawk 1 dark morph
CERULEAN WARBLER 1 female/immature LATE

We also scored an immature Broad-winged Hawk at Eagle Point Park that was
perched.

Great Birding!!!

Headed out to HISP about 8am with rain on the horizon. As we arrived to the Osprey Trail it began raining, we headed to one of the cafes and held out until the rain stopped. We went back and as the rain stopped birds began to pour in from the west (Gulf) to the east. Vickie Johns and I were giddy, birds were Everywhere. A mini Fallout! We gathered our gear, including insect repellent NEEDED today. We looked over the playground area and parking lot, then headed to Osprey Trail, again birds were flying everywhere. There were sooo many flying overhead we couldn't ID them all. Frank Brandt and Steve Reardon arrived and were a great help...more eyes. The Summer Tanagers were eating their fill of Cicadas...you could hear it happening all around. What an Amazing Day!!! Great birding!!!!!

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] White-faced Ibis and Brown Booby
Hi All,

Steve Reardon and I scoured the Key Vista Park for migrant landbirds, here
in Holiday, Pasco County but it was totally dead. However we did score the
adult White-faced Ibis from the Anclote Pier parking lot. A scope is
essential to properly see the field marks on this bird. This bird has been
around for at least 2 weeks!

We also went to Phillipe Park in Palm Harbor, Pinellas County and had
distant scope view of 3 Brown Booby. We then proceeded to Mobley Park in
Oldsmar, which is also in Pinellas County, and had superb looks at the
birds through the scope, as we tallied all 6 of the previously mentioned
count.

A scope is essential for GREAT views.

Great Birding!!

I received a few answers about my “mystery bird”, but I really can not give a definite ID to the darn bird. Everyone agreed “Not a Peregrine Falcon” But……..
One person thought young Red-shoudered Hawk, one though young Red-tailed, one person thought Northern Harrier, another thought Cooper’s Hawk.

So, because my pictures were not good enough to give a conclusive ID, it will remain a “mystery bird” in my mind and on my birdlist,
Thanks to all who replied.

Hi birders.
I received news about the 2 American Oystercatchers that I saw at Cape May Wildlife Management Area, 2 Mile Beach Unit:




Orange 38 was banded as a chick on June 27, 2011 at Cape May Point State Park, NJ.

This bird is 5+ YEARS OLD!





Orange N3 was banded as a chick on July 9, 2007 at North Wildwood, NJ.

This bird is 9+ years old!

If you see a banded bird try to get a picture, or remember, the band color, numbers, or letters on it. Information can be reported on www.Bandedbirds.org

It is very fun to see a banded bird, report it, and find out where and when it was banded.

Nice at LAWD today, not terribly birdy.
Had my FOS American Bittern. We saw Belted Kingfishers, 1 Purple Gallinule, 2 Pied-billed Grebes and, of course, all of the Herons, Egrets.
On our way out a birder had stopped to photograph a Peregrine Falcon which was chased away by a Red-shouldered Hawk.
We looked for the PEFA, but could not relocate the bird at that time.
As we were getting back in my car a “raptor” flew towards us and I grabbed 3 dreadful pictures. At the time I thought the PEFA was returning.
I can not confirm that the pictures I took are a PEFA. If not, I can not ID it.
The black on the wings and the long dark tail have me stumped.
Can anyone help???
THANK you.

Good Afternoon,

After not hearing of any reports yesterday about the previously seen
Glaucous Gull from the area of John's Pass, I checked farther south this
morning and found it just past 9 AM at Pass-A-Grille Beach, at the 19th
Avenue public access point. It was still there as of 11:30. There are
parking meters along here, 25-cents per 15 minutes.

The "flock" of Brown Boobys were seen again yesterday at the north end of
Tampa Bay, from either Philippe Park (Safety Harbor) on the west side or
closer looks seem to be had from Mobbly Beach Park (Oldsmar) on the east
side of the bay.

This afternoon after work, 9/16, I stopped off at Ormond-by-the-Sea to do a short sea watch because of the strong north winds along the coast. I quickly found multiple flocks of Red-necked Phalaropes moving south. Some groups even wheeled around and sat on the ocean out beyond the breakers. I found at least 400+ in about 25 minutes. They were too far out for photos, but I managed a few. A scope is needed. I also had one very distant jaeger out at about 1.5 miles chasing terns.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Jaeger. Ponce de Leon Inlet
This morning, 9/16, I had a rather small juvenile intermediate morph jaeger fly into a group of gulls on the beach at the base of the north jetty at Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia County. It was about the size of the Laughing Gulls it was attacking and appeared to be a Parasitic Jaeger. The white flash on the underside of the wing looked too large for juvenile Long-tailed Jaeger, where the white at the base of the primaries is usually considerably smaller than the dark areas on the outer primaries. The bill appeared too long for Long-tailed. It all happened so quickly that I was not able to get any decent photos. The bird continued across the Inlet to the south. Any comments would be appreciated.

Hi BirdBrains,
Just a short post...I went out around the yard with hopes of finding lots of migrants in the yard this morning.  BUT, much to my dismay, we did not have much that I could see.  Had our FOS Red-eyed Vireo, picking through the trees, lots of Chimney Swifts overhead, a Prairie Warbler, a Common Yellowthroat.  Also 3-4 Brown Thrashers "dissing" me from the tops of the trees, gangs of Mockingbirds and Blue Jays, Titmice and Carolina Chickadees, a Carolina Wren doing an aria, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers in abundance hiding from the big eye of the camera lens, several female House Finches, Mourning and Common Ground Doves, and a Red-shouldered Hawk in the next yard. 
Good Birding!

The Sanderling with dark green flag with white letters: CJV was captured on 5/22/15 on the west coast of New Jersey.
I resighted the bird on the east coast of NJ - Cape May on 9/11/16.

Captures:
5/22/2015 - Villas Beaches, New Jersey, United States - 2751-01209 FEDGCJV SAND
Resightings:
9/11/2016 - Two Mile Beach, Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, United States - 2751-01209 FEDGCJV SAND





Below article is copied from www.Bandedbirds.org website


>
> Sanderling Calidris alba <>
> Description:
>
> A small, plump sandpiper most often seen on sandy coastal beaches while on migration and during the winter, running quickly ahead of oncoming waves and chasing after receding ones, probing the exposed sand for food.
>
> Range:
>
> Though numbers are small locally, it is probably the most widespread maritime shorebird wintering in North America, found along all three coasts from southern British Columbia and Massachusetts to southern Argentina and Chile. Migration distances from high-arctic breeding grounds to wintering grounds range between 3,000 and 10,000 kilometers
>
> Spring migration and stopovers:
>
> Move northward March through June, with the main flight through the U.S. in May. Those migrating along the West Coast move through California in late April to mid-May, and through Oregon and Washington in early May to mid-June. Interior migrants appear in Texas in Late April and May; Missouri’s largest concentrations are in mid-May. Along the Atlantic Coast, the sanderlings move through Florida in mid-March to early April, with peak concentrations in New Jersey and Massachusetts the last week of May. Peak spring migration numbers appear in Florida and The Delaware Bay, where sanderlings feed on horseshoe crabs, is the most important stopover in the eastern U.S.
>
> Fall migration and stopovers:
> Most adults depart high-arctic breeding areas mid-July to mid-August, with juveniles departing late August to early September, accompanied by a few adults. In the West, migrants are most common in Washington and Oregon mid-August to mid-October, with most migrants arriving in California in August. In Missouri, sanderlings are most common mid-August through September, while in Texas the migrants move through between mid-September to early December. In the Canadian Maritimes, peak migration is between the third weeks of July and August. In the U.S., peak fall migration numbers appear in Massachusetts and the Delaware Bay. In Massachusetts, adults peak in August and continue through September, with juveniles most abundant in September and October. At Cape May, N.J., most arrive between July and September; sanderlings peak in August and September in North Carolina and arrive in southwest Florida from August through October.

public beach access parking lot).

It is beginning its 3rd-cycle (3rd basic plumage). Thank you, Lyn Atherton,

I am sending out another picture of the birds on beach.
There were many Sanderlings running on beach.
The banded bird was larger and bill was different.



Everyone who answered my post thought this was a Sanderling.
Does any one band Sanderlings?





Bird in center of picture, I thought, is a Sanderling.
Bird on left and right and in front are larger and have a different bill.
In some ID books, the bill on left bird and my banded bird look like the bill of REKN.
Also, on birdbanding.org website, there are pictures of REKN with similar green flag tag.

Chuck-

This is a hatch year Reddish Egret. This one seems a bit 'grayer' than some, but the leg color is right on the money. Speaking of legs- look at the strong, robust legs on this bird. This is a subtle but important field mark for this species when comparing to the other similarly sized wading birds it shares its range with.

Nice photo, too!

I found this bird at Casperson beach Venice Fl. It was in a group of Herons that included Great blue Herons a Great Egret and about 15 Snowy Egrets. This bird was about one third larger than the Snowies and about one third smaller than the Great Egret. It was all grey with black legs and beak the body of the bird was grey and it had dark yellow eyes I have many photos and I am attaching one.

Hi All,

This morning, Don Fraser and I observed an adult White-faced Ibis amongst
the group of 52 Glossy Ibis in the flooded area east of the parking lot at
Anclote Gulf Park. The red eye and pink facial skin was easily seen
through the scopes.

We scored a whopping 69 species between the connecting Key Vista/Anclote
Gulf Parks, as these were our other highlights:

American Avocet 3 basic plumaged southbound birds
Whimbrel 1
Common Nighthawk 1
Gray Kingbird 1 getting rather late here for Pasco County

8 species of Warblers including:

Tennessee Warbler 1
Blackburnian Warbler 2
Chestnut-sided Warbler 1

Also prior to departing this morning, I detected at least 4 calling Veery
from 515-630 AM; These are the 1st nocturnal migrant Veery I have heard
this fall.

GREAT BIRDING!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Merritt Island NWR - 8-7 & 8 2016
For the past 2 days I have been looking for shore birds on the Refuge. Since the rain Gator Creek, and Peacock's Pocket have lost shore bird habitat. The water levels are high. However on the Bio Lab Road I have picked up some shore birds mainly near the beach end of the road. I also have seen the Yellow Warblers and the Prairie Warblers in the mangroves along the sides of Peacock's Pocket and the Bio Lab Road roads. I found one Wilson's Phalarope on Bio Lab Road, and 2 at Vista 3 on the beach road. I've seen Western Sandpipers, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Stilt Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, Rudy Turnstones, Semipalmated Plovers, Black-bellied Plovers, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, and Western and regular Willets. I probably saw other species of shore birds, but nothing out of the ordinary. Does anyone know of any Buff-breasted Sandpipers being seen? Sure would like to find some. There is a Yellow-crowned Night Heron on Gator Creek Road. It has been there for a while, and I'm sure many have seen it. I observed it feeding on small crabs. They are not fiddler crabs, but appear to be small stone crabs. If you look at the picture of it with this email, I'd appreciate any comment on the species of crab it is. One other thing.... the Bio Lab Road needs the switch grasses cut on the lagoon side of the road. It is obstructing the view of the shore, and there are only a few areas where you can see the shore. I was informed that they are going to cut the grasses soon. It sure is nice out there.

All,

Thanks for the tip, Debbie; a scope is absolutely necessary to distinguish the boobies from the cormorants on the same tower.

As of 12:15, there were at least five brown boobies among the birds on the second tower out into Tampa Bay from Philippe Park (drive to the south end of the park until you have a good view of the electrical towers crossing the Bay there). I only included birds that showed clear booby profiles, though, from body shape, I think there were more than five. Further, at least two of the birds were not juveniles. One showed a very light bill, and another showed clear white underparts. I expect that color discernment will improve later in the day from Philippe, with the sun behind viewers. I hope we’ll get a clear record of ages and sexes of these birds, along with numbers.

For those driving from the north, be advised that the road in front of Philippe was closed to through traffic, so you may encounter a detour. Good luck, everyone.

Good evening,

I received an e-mail from Pinellas resident Sue Murasko that she had possibly seen two Brown Boobys back in mid-August near Philippe Park. This morning Joe Zarolinski checked out the tip and discovered a "flock" of nine. They were seen throughout the day.

Near the far south end of Philippe Park in Safety Harbor is a powerline structure that sits out a hundred yards or so from shore. The birds were initially seen there, but by late afternoon had moved to the third powerline structure to the east (T.Kalbach, C.Yilmaz). Kalbach & Yilmaz reported that the 9 they saw were all adults.

The third structure is closest to Mobbly Bayou Beach Park in Oldsmar (also in Pinellas).

A scope is not necessary if the birds are at the structure closest to the park you happen to be, but is certainly necessary if they are not.

It's about a 15-minute drive from one park to the other, perhaps a little less. Philippe Park is free while Mobbly Beach Park has had a $5 parking fee attached to it - but I understand the lone parking meter is "Out of Order" so I cannot see how they could possibly keep you accountable.

This sighting is remarkable, for sure, and I would appreciate hearing from you if you are able to count more than 9.

Good luck,

Ron Smith

I’m in Cape May NJ and saw this guy on top of tree when I parked my car.
I ruled out American Kestrel because of size, color, and single mustache stripe.
I assume this is a Peregrine Falcon from color, mustache stripe, size, length of tail.
Can anyone confirm this ID for me?

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Pinellas' Birds ( 6 Sep 2016 )
Good evening,

I received an e-mail from Pinellas resident Sue Murasko that she had
possibly seen two Brown Boobys back in mid-August near Philippe Park. This
morning Joe Zarolinski checked out the tip and discovered a "flock" of
nine. They were seen throughout the day.

Near the far south end of Philippe Park in Safety Harbor is a powerline
structure that sits out a hundred yards or so from shore. The birds were
initially seen there, but by late afternoon had moved to the third
powerline structure to the east (T.Kalbach, C.Yilmaz). Kalbach & Yilmaz
reported that the 9 they saw were all adults.

The third structure is closest to Mobbly Bayou Beach Park in Oldsmar (also
in Pinellas).

A scope is not necessary if the birds are at the structure closest to the
park you happen to be, but is certainly necessary if they are not.

It's about a 15-minute drive from one park to the other, perhaps a little
less. Philippe Park is free while Mobbly Beach Park has had a $5 parking
fee attached to it - but I understand the lone parking meter is "Out of
Order" so I cannot see how they could possibly keep you accountable.

This sighting is remarkable, for sure, and I would appreciate hearing from
you if you are able to count more than 9.

Good luck,

Ron Smith

Warbler numbers were down across the board at Loyce Harpe today (only 9 species - no waterthrushes). But I did find a beautiful young female Cerulean, as well as a nice juvenile dark-morph Short-tailed Hawk. Also a Cliff Swallow, which is a pretty good bird for the area.

Young female. White wingbars, bold pale eyeline extending back across the head. Greenish on top and pale yellow (fading to white in some areas) over most of the underparts, except for some faint gray streaking on the sides. No black present anywhere on the bird, which gave it an overall pastel sort of impression - as though someone had bleached a female Blackburnian Warbler.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] CIRCLE B BAR RESERVE 9/5/16
Hello Birders. Out to Circle B Bar Reserve Southeast of Lakeland from
7 till 11:30 and saw some unusual things this morning.
Best Birds: 5 EASTERN KINGBIRDS, 2 PROTHONOTARY, 6 YELLOW, 3 NORTHERN
PARULA, 2 BLACK&WHITE, 3 YELLOW-THROATED AND 5 COMMON YELLOWTHROAT
WARBLERS, 3 RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRDS AND 2 BLUE-WINGED TEAL that were
first of the season ( Fos) as were the Common Yellowthroats which were all
female types.
Also seen were Barred Owls, Black-crowned Night Herons, Pileated
Woodpeckers, Tufted Titmice and the regulars. Saturday a lady photoed a
nice male Blackburnian Warbler. The last three trips I've seen small flocks
of Eastern Kingbirds flying over at tree top level but haven't found one
perched. Seeing the Kingbirds flying towards me their flight pattern remind
me of Robins.
Leaving the parking-lot and heading West Shady Oaks butts into Heron
Hideout and as I turned the corner there was a Barred Owl standing in a
puddle in the path and he was eating what appeared to be a frog leg and
when he finished he flew up on the little kiosk 8 feet from me; I had to
back up to focus on him ( see photo ) The Barred Owls are so tame.
Heading South on Heron Hideout at the intersection a big Alligator was
eating a fish and just to the left on Alligator Alley a pair of
Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were leading their newly hatched ducklings
down the trail. It seemed like a very odd place to see the ducks there
under the tall oaks but there they were. Good Birding and God Bless.

I was out in my backyard this evening at dusk, watching the barred owl hunting among the trees. After he flew away, I turned my eyes to the skies because I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It was a nighthawk, followed by 8 more, within a minute or two, all heading southward. There were several bats flying around too. All this, after a great late afternoon backyard birding, finding a cerulean warbler, two prothonotaries, and a prairie warbler.

On Friday morning local birders found nine species of terns at Newnans
Lake, east of Gainesville: Sooty, Least, Gull-billed, Caspian, Black,
Common, Forster's, Royal, and Sandwich. This was as many species of terns
as had been recorded in Alachua County in the 130 years since we've been
keeping records, and they were all flying around Newnans Lake at once.
Later in the morning Ryan Terrill and Jonathan Mays found a Bridled Tern at
Paynes Prairie, and in the early afternoon Dr. Scott Robinson found at
least one Brown Noddy at Newnans Lake. And if you consider Black Skimmers
to be terns of a sort, we had them as well, in three locations including
two that were sitting on the runway of the Gainesville airport!

Other notable visitors included a good number of Magnificent Frigatebirds
(probably more than 20), two Red-necked Phalaropes, a Sanderling, a Ruddy
Turnstone, three Willets, 23 Short-billed Dowitchers, a large flight of
swallows including a surprising number of Purple Martins, and flocks of
Eastern Kingbirds and Bobolinks.

Good evening,

Yesterday as many as 14 Sooty Terns and 2 Bridled Terns were seen off
John's Pass (P.Plage et al.). A Buff-breasted Sandpiper was found about a
mile farther south at Treasure Island Beach (E.Plage et al.). It was not
seen today.

Today, Cerulean Warblers were at Boyd Hill NP in south St. Petersburg
(m.ob.) and perhaps as many as 6 were at Sawgrass Lake Park. Blue-winged
Warblers were seen at both locations. In the afternoon a Canada Warbler
was found at Sawgrass (S.Tavaglione et al.) along the entrance road leading
into the park!!!!!

Common Nighthawks have been moving through the past two days in good
numbers. Eastern Kingbirds, too, have been noticed, especially at Fort De
Soto.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Wilson's Phalarope, MINWR, Vista 7
At about 2:00 today there were 3 Wilson's phalarope near the eastern shore at Vista 7. They were mostly swimming but one did bring its catch almost onto the shore but dropped it when it was in toe deep water. Only other shorebirds at the time were a couple W willet and a handful of greater yellowlegs.

As reported earlier, all the non-paved roads that I've driven by are closed, except for the boat ramps and Sendler's education area.

Happy chasing,

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] "Tropical" Terns, Hudson Beach, Pasco County; September 03, 2016
Hi All,

This morning from 710-1230, Charlie Fisher, Bill Pranty, Don Fraser, David
Bowman and I conducted a "Big Sit" from the Gazeebo at Hudson Beach.

We were lucky enough to score 7 SOOTY and at least 2 BRIDLED Terns!! The
Sootys were all southbound birds while the Bridleds were milling around
offshore most of the morning.

A scope is needed to properly identify these birds.

Other birds of note included the following:

Blue-winged Teal 57 flocks of 13 and 44 southbound flocks offshore
NORTHERN SHOVELER 1 flying southbound with the 44 Teal; early!!
Magnificent Frigatebird 8 my highest count for Pasco; all southbound
Brown Pelican 431 numerous flocks all southbound; Pasco high count
Least Tern 5 all southbound; getting rather late here for Pasco
Black Tern 129 all southbound birds in various plumages and flocks
Common Tern 1
Sandwhich Tern 33
Purple Martin 11 all northbound
Cliff Swallow 2 northbound

Great Birding!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Storm Birding Surfing
So, the surf should be really good in the Panhandle right now due to wind direction (offshore W of storm) and incoming swell from the low pressure. As I look at the weather map, it seems migrating birds would be forced counterclockwise w the winds and be forced to land on the panhandle coast or go for the Gulf crossing. I can do meteorological surf forecasting but not birds. Whaddya think / know?!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Juvenile Bridled Tern - Honeymoon Island
Just before 1:00 pm today I saw a juvenile Bridled Tern flying west to east right along the shoreline at the easternmost end of the first parking lot (by the South Beach Pavilion Cafe) at Honeymoon Island Park, Dunedin, Pinellas Co.
No photo but the bird was struggling flying across face of the very strong onshore wind and twisted and turned several times. I had good views of both the bird's upperside and underside. It passed within about 50 yds from me at a height of about 50 ft. and I clearly saw paler ladder-backed pattern to otherwise dark back, all dark upper wings, narrow black eye line (not spot) and extensive white on tail. As it reached the pavilion it swung inland over the parking lot and by the time I ran through to the other side of the building it was out of site. Approx. 15 mins later a Park ranger asked me to leave, as they were closing the park because much of the main park road was already underwater.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Bullock's/Baltimore Oriole Hybrid, West Pasco

Hello,

Just got the final word back on my submittal of a spring oriole photo to FOSRC. It appeared to me to be most like a first year Bullock's Oriole male. It was photographed by Joe Colontonio in his back yard in New Port Richey on 4/13/2015. The Florida Ornithological Society Records Committee has determined it is a hybrid Bullock's/Baltimore Oriole due to the extra black on it's face, although the rest of the plumage conforms to a Bullock's Oriole. For Florida a hybrid Bullock's/Baltimore Oriole may actually be rarer than a Bullock's Oriole.

I then clicked on the GPS location in the box on the bottom of the page, which created the map with a marker. I then copied the URL.

It only takes a few moments, and doing so would make these reports far more valiable since most reports have little to no directions.

Subject: Re: [BRDBRAIN] Buff-breasted Sandpipers. Flagler Co.
They were still there tonight (wedn, 30 Aug)

The sod field on the N side of W CR 2006 (the one that leads down to Dead Lake) had only killdeer (that I saw)

The field in south of 304 and east of 305 had many more BB plovers than reported last night. I counted at least 50 and they were the most numerous bird species in the field and in many varied plumages.

Funny side story: When I read Michael's report I completely missed that he saw 4 buff-breasteds. So, when I pulled up and looked and the first bird I saw was that, I was very excited. Then, when I scanned north and saw another one, more excitement, then when I saw a third I thought "dammit, how am I getting this ID wrong, these look so obvious and they're walking all head bobbing pigeon-like!" Then I saw a fourth and no other birds. So, I went and read my shorebirds guide again, and then decided I'd better video them cuz surely I'm right on this ID. But, I can't figure out how to post the video here, so I went to FB, posted it there and realized MB had already reported 4! LOL (by the way, I did eventually see them next to a pec and a spotted, so that was good confirmation). My video is posted here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/birdingflorida/ (I also don't know how to link directly to the post).

Hi All,

Don Fraser and I hit some locations here in the eastern part of the county
and the highlight was an AMERICAN BITTERN, which was seen in wet area on
Auton Road about 1/4 mile north of Enterprise Road. This is the same
location where one summered in 2014. It's so early for this bird in the
county, so I would guess that it is the same bird from 2 years ago.

Other highlights:

Powerline Road, Pasco County:

Tree Swallow 1

Trilby Road:

SWALLOW-TAILED KITE 1 immature, with a rather short forked tail. My
latest fall sighting in Pasco County!

Red-headed Woodpecker 2 adults
Bobolink 42 including a low flying flock of 27

River Road, Dade City:

Black-bellied Whistling Duck 3
Glossy Ibis 57
Greater Yellowlegs 2

Auton/Singletary Roads:

AMERICAN BITTERN 1 (see above)
Bank Swallow 1
Eastern Kingbird 1

Lake Pasadena:

Purple Gallinule 2 immatures
Eastern Kingbird 1

Thursday looks like a SUPERB day to be birding along the middle of the gulf
coast, as I suggest you get out and look for vagrant terns and pelagics
that get blown ashore.

Great Birding!!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Buff-breasted Sandpipers. Flagler Co.
Yesterday evening (8/29) about 6:00 p.m., I found 4 Buff-breasted Sandpipers mixed in with a small group of Pectoral Sandpipers, a Least Sandpiper and some Killdeer on a sod field in Flagler County. The field in off of route 100 about 8 miles west of Bunnell. From Bunnell, turn left off rt 305 onto CR35. Continue about a mile and look at the sod field on the left (east) side of the road. A scope is required. Also, off route 305, just past the intersection with route 304, there is a fallow field on the east side of rt305 that had 18 Black-bellied Plovers. It should be great habitat for other species with this rain.

I didn't know what a white-faced whistling duck was (it just came in via rare eBird report), so I googled it and found this page. It looks a bit dated, but still good info.

Also, if you see purple / gray-headed swamphens, or other non-native and potentially harmful species, please consider reporting them. Their is an app for that called IveGot1 that works with EDDMaps:

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Loyce Harpe Park info
Hey all,
Since I posted my warbler list from Loyce Harpe last week, I've noticed from eBird that several people have gone there and not seen much. So I thought some more detailed information might be helpful.
First of all, here's a link to a page with a trail map. (Note that it's laid out upside-down, with north at the bottom.)
The Trail - RRMBA

I usually walk the main beginner (yellow) trail in its entirety, from the trailhead all the way around to the fingers in the southwest corner. It's a little over 3 miles. But if hiking all over creation in the heat and mosquitoes isn't your thing, you can pick up the trail where it crosses the West Clay Road. There's great warbler habitat in both directions from there, including a lot of the shrubby marsh that the waterthrushes like so much.

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Night heron
I am worried about a night heron that has been sitting on the back of a bench here at the condo where I live. Now he is sitting on the fence staring at the pool. Originally I didn't worry as I thought he had been knocked down by the rain. But now he has been here for 6 hours and he is still staring at the pool.

Any suggestions?

Thank you all again for being patient with me, and my questions. Of course this bird is a Reddish Egret. I received an interesting response. An individual says that he has seen hundreds of Reddish Egrets, and photographed dozens of them in 30 years living in the Florida Keys. He stated that he has never seen anything like this bird. He based his response by using the definitive Birds of North America. Very interesting response.

 So.... apparently this is an unusual bird. We do know that it is a Reddish Egret in an unusual plumage. [😊]

Since I found the unusual plumage Reddish Egret (for me) I have run across some more shots of what I think are Reddish Egret. I took them last year. I assumed it was a Reddish Egret phasing into the White Morph form. Now I'm not too sure. I've gone online, and into all my bird books, and I can not find the 2 phases in question that I have pictures of. Someone also responded to me, and said that the Reddish Egret did not nest in my area. I don't believe that is true since I have found Reddish Egrets on nest the the northern end of the Banana River (no motor zone) on islands off the SRB channel. In these pictures I thought that the bird was simply about to turn into the all white form. Now I don't know. Appreciate any input. Thank-you

For those of you who don't do FB - I thought I would share with you that I spotted a female Orchard Oriole at the Bailey Tract yesterday morning and it was seen/heard again today. Once you enter the Bailey Tract in Sanibel - turn right and go about 300-400 yards - seen on either side of the path.Happy Birding!

Hi All,

Charlie Fisher, Bill Pranty and I hit 3 locations in the northwest part of
the county this morning and these were our highlights out of the 67 species
seen and heard:

Aripeka Sandhills Preserve:

Eastern Wood-Pewee 1 seen, heard and photographed
Yellow-throated Vireo 2 both singing
Summer Tanager 1 singing
Bobolink 6 calling flyovers just after dawn

SunWest Mines:

GULL-BILLED TERN 1 seen in north mine
Caspian Tern 6 seen in north mine
Black Tern 1 molting adult; seen in north mine

A scope is needed to ID these birds correctly.

Hudson Beach:

Bald Eagle 2 adults
Sandwich Tern 1 adult
TREE SWALLOW 2 EARLY!
Bank Swallow 1
CLIFF SWALLOW 18!!! possibly the highest count EVER for Pasco County.

All the swallows seen here were from the top tier of the gazeebo and ALL
were northbound!!!

Great Birding!!!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] Fw: Another Question about Reddish Egret Plumages 8/27/16
Hi Danny and all, To clarify (I hope), Reddish Egrets do not have phases like Little Blue Heron does. Reddish Egret has 2 morphs, dark or white. They don't "phase" into a white morph, like Little Blue Heron does. I just checked, and my older Natl Geo field guide uses the misleading word "phase" to describe the 2 plumages of Reddish Egret. My newer edition correctly uses the word "morph". The word "phase" implies that something will change over time. Reddish Egrets don't change from gray to white. Additionally, my field guide shows a juvenile dark morph--a gray bird. But it doesn't show a juvenile white morph, which, I assume, is white. Glad to hear refinement or correction of this from those who know more, thanks. Dotty RobbinsHigh Springs

Thank you all again for being patient with me, and my questions. Of course this bird is a Reddish Egret. I received an interesting response. An individual says that he has seen hundreds of Reddish Egrets, and photographed dozens of them in 30 years living in the Florida Keys. He stated that he has never seen anything like this bird. He based his response by using the definitive Birds of North America. Very interesting response.

So.... apparently this is an unusual bird. We do know that it is a Reddish Egret in an unusual plumage. [&#128522;]

Since I found the unusual plumage Reddish Egret (for me) I have run across some more shots of what I think are Reddish Egret. I took them last year. I assumed it was a Reddish Egret phasing into the White Morph form. Now I'm not too sure. I've gone online, and into all my bird books, and I can not find the 2 phases in question that I have pictures of. Someone also responded to me, and said that the Reddish Egret did not nest in my area. I don't believe that is true since I have found Reddish Egrets on nest the the northern end of the Banana River (no motor zone) on islands off the SRB channel. In these pictures I thought that the bird was simply about to turn into the all white form. Now I don't know. Appreciate any input. Thank-you

I appreciate all the replies on the shore bird ID. They were all mixed, but I believe that it is a Semipalmated Sandpiper after viewing all the suggestions.

Thank-you all very much...

Subject: ID Request -MINWR - 8-26-16

I'm sorry for another ID, but can't find it. I thought I knew my peeps, but it doesn't appear that I do. This morning I photographed a Least Sandpiper with another unknown peep. I don't see how it can be a Semipalmated Sandpiper, but maybe it is. that broad dark line through the eye area, and the the long legs through me off. It can't be a Western. So anybody know what it is?
I'm sorry for the wrong ID on the Red Knot. I've photographed the Baird's Sandpiper before. Thought the Red Knot at the time looked like the Baird's. Thanks for your help.

Hi All,
Summer at Archbold Biological Station can be pretty hot. October on the other hand can be downright pleasant. If you’re serious about birding and haven’t yet attended a Florida Ornithological Society meeting, you owe it to yourself to attend this one. There are excellent field trips, tasty food, comfortable rooms and for a real challenge, Andy Kratter will be there with another "skins quiz.” Attached is complete information. It’s about as much fun as you can have.
