Just a follow-up to yesterday's post on the Snowy Egret.  I've changed my
ID on this bird to Snowy Egret X Little Blue Heron Here's my eBird write-up
on this bird.

 The dreaded hybrid...SNEG is clearly the dominant DNA in this bird but the
light mottling on its primaries and neck/head, along with the darker
feathers on its lower belly, to me, suggests LBHE DNA in the mix. First
spring LBHE clearly possess that mottled appearance. I should have given it
clearer consideration before entering it on eBird as SNEG. The other
feature that stood out to me in the field was the long bill on the bird as
being unusual for SNEG. The size of this bird was nearly half the size of
nearby GREG and it had black legs with yellow feet.

The Snowy Egret, previously reported, was resting on a very small cattail
island in an open area of the marsh roughly half mile north of the tower on
Ringle Rd on the east side.

Good birding,

Hi all, 

I just had an adult male Smith's Longspur in breeding plumage in Gratiot 
County, in a corn stubble field on the south side of Roosevelt Road. It was 
seen twice, one perched and once in flight. This was east of 127, and the first 
corn stubble field you will see east of the intersection with Crapo Road. It is 
surrounded by green fields. Joseph Kurtz and I are currently trying to refind 
it. 


Good birding,
Nate Martineau

This may lead to a double posting but two posts are better than none if time is 
of the essence: 



The Say's phoebe was present at its original location (Darrow's field) from
around 11:30am until 3:10pm. It is currently about 0.25mi west of Darrow's
field in the horse fields south of Central Ave.

I found a male Eurasian Wigeon feeding on duck weed at Grefe Pond last
evening, April 29th.  The auto tour is closed but Grefe Tower/Pond is part
of the Ferguson Bayou Trail that is open to foot traffic.  It requires a
roughly two mile walk to get to Grefe Tower.  A bicycle would be a good
idea.  There was also an adult male Eurasian X American Wigeon in the same
location.  Photos can be seen on eBird.

Good birding,

Joe Soehnel

All,

Black-necked Stilt still present in pond NE of tower at Fish Point. Usually
can be seen from tower with scope.

Multiple negative reports for the Eurasian Wigeon this morning at
Kirk/Loomis Marsh.

Dan Duso relocated the Black-necked Stilt at Fish Point this morning, April
26th. It was in the same location where Tim & Aggie Keinath found it last
evening. Photo is on www.saginawbaybirding.org

 

homepage
slide show. I was out there for 2.5 hours after Dan left and he did say it
flew off somewhere. I dipped but my best guess is that it remained sleeping
somewhere and will be back out sooner or later to feed.

My consolation was relocating the Eurasian Wigeon that Ryan Dziedzic & Val
Trabucchi found last Saturday at the north end of Kirk Rd in Tuscola
County. Take the east side channel two-track to the guard rail and walk a
hundred meters or so to the pond that will be to the east.


Good birding!

Nice catch, Mark. And great photos!

We've actually had a number of whooping crane reports this
year (mostly younger birds). As a quick and friendly reminder
to everyone, if you spot a whooping crane in Michigan, please 
fill out the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Eastern US whooping 
crane report form:
(http://www.fws.gov/midwest/whoopingcrane/sightings/sightingform.cfm).

If you see a bird on the ground, please avoid approaching too
closely and resist the temptation to post the location for at
least a day or two to help minimize disturbance and 
harassment (intentional or otherwise) of the bird. With any
luck, this species will one day decide to nest in Michigan's 
marshes, and we can all help that along by taking care to
protect the birds that we do find here.

Thanks!
Karen

Tim Keinath reported a Black-necked Stilt to my website email address this
evening.  He and his wife, Aggie, found the bird today, a half mile north
of headquarters on the first open marsh area on the east side of Ringle
Rd.  I've requested details and will forward the details to Adam Byrne when
I get them.

Deb Johnson just found 2 black-necked stilts in Hillsdale county.
Woodbridge Road off of Camden Road. That's all the information I have. She
did send a photo but I'm unable to post it at present.

Bruce Cohen


There is also a photo posted there that clearly shows two Stilts.

Something that if birders are in the area looking for small gulls, they may
want to swing through that way.

Chris DeWolfe and I found Ryan D's EURASIAN WIGEON off of Loomis and Kirk.
To our astonishment, a second Eurasian Wigeon was located within 20 yards
of the first bird. I was hoping the two would get close enough together to
photograph them both at once, but this never transpired.

Thanks to Ryan for posting and good birding to all!

Mich-listers:

  Late this afternoon, Val Trabbuchi and I discovered a male EURASIAN
WIGEON feeding with every other common dabbler found in Michigan in a
recently drawn-down marsh off Loomis and Kirk Roads in Tuscola County.
This area is just west of Fish Point and is rather obscure.  Loomis and
Kirk Roads intersect at a drain.  On the northside of Loomis Road, there
are actually two roads on wither side of the drain, one on the west side is
marked private (but is named Kirk Road) and the other unimproved road on
the east side is unnamed but leads to a dead end marked by a guard rail.
To get to the marsh, one must park at the guard rail and walk about a
quarter mile.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S29159015

On another note, the large marsh along Ringle Road that is part of the
refuge component of Fish Point has been drawn down considerably and
promises interesting finds this spring!

Good birding,

Subject: Possible Ross's Gull
From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Sat, 23 Apr 2016 20:46:49 -0400
Today at around 12:30 p.m., I found two gulls on Lake Hudson SRA in southwest 
Lenawee County. One was a basic plumaged Bonaparte’s Gull and the other was, 
well something else. It had the wing pattern of a juvenile Kittiwake but it did 
not look right for that and I saw no black on the nape. It never came close but 
it was present the entire time I was there. No black cap on the bird. I got a 
few crappy photos but they do look promising for Ross’s Gull. I just added an 
additional photo to my flickr account which seems to show a wedge shaped tail. 


The birds were viewed from the swimming beach.

Here is a link to the photos such that they are including the most recently 
added photo.

The Western Meadowlark is still at the Meijer in Three Rivers. I didn't see 
it, but I just heard it singing from the fields west of the garden center.

The shorebird habitat is actually just northWEST of the tower that I talked
about in the previous email but it doesn't take much to notice it.

From: Joseph Soehnel <soehnelj AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 19 Apr 2016 22:08:57 -0400
Karl Overman found a male Eurasian Wigeon today in the South Pool of
Nayanquing Point, Bay County.  I was able to subsequently relocate it this
evening.  It's to the east (left) of the "T" dike intersection mixed in
with American Coots, Redhead, American Wigeon, and Ring-necked Ducks.

Take M-13 north to Kitchen Rd from Linwood Rd and turn right (east).  Drive
roughly a mile to the stop sign, which is Tower Beach Rd and turn right.
Park at the south end of the road and walk a half mile to the south pool.

Other marsh birds observed at the South Pool were:  Black-crowned Night
Heron; Sora; Virginia Rail, and Yellow-headed Blackbird.  It will also be
worth checking the shorebird habitat just northeast of the tower.  It's
prime right now.  There were Greater Yellowlegs, Dunlin, Pectoral
Sandpiper, and Wilson's Snipe and I'm anticipating this to be hopping with
shorebirds in the coming weeks.

Good Birding & Thanks Karl!

There is currently a Western Meadowlark in the field north of Meijer by Oasis 
in Three Rivers. This is the second day so far, and the best sighting. It was 
sitting plain as day singing on a wire.

Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2016 17:40:14 -0400
Today around 2:50pm, I observed a first cycle Black-legged Kittiwake flying
north west through the Straits of Mackinac. I had no camera, but had good
scope views of it.

I noted:
-a strong, black M pattern across its wings, forming a white triangle on
each wing.
-a bold, black neck collar in addition to a dark ear spot.

I last saw it land on the water far out between the upper peninsula and St.
Helena Island at around 3:30pm. It was gradually flying north west into a
strong headwind, landing on the water several times.

The Eared Grebe in breeding plumage initially found by Alan Ryff on April 3rd I

the entrance road. There are many Horned Grebes in that area as well.

About noon today my wife spotted a Black Vulture on Five Lakes Rd on the 
border of Arcadia and Lapeer Townships, between Haines and Bowers Rds.  
There 2 road kills right there but it was aloft when she saw it.  She 
couldn't get a picture of it before it sailed south as it was being 
harassed by a Kestrel.  I bolted from Flint to try and re-acquire it but 
failed.  Spent an hour driving around the area and will try again later 
today as we live only a few miles away from the spot.

Subject: Black-billed Magpie, Oceana-Muskegon County Line
From: David Dister <david.dister AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2016 20:35:14 -0400
Birders,

Early this afternoon I received an email from Dick Smith about a*
Black-billed Magpie* that was seen and photographed on his Oceana
County/Muskegon County line farm for at least an hour (ca. 11:15am - 12:15
pm). The bird was in a fenced pasture north of the house, and perched on a
post before foraging on the muddy pasture. It finally flew off to the
south. Mark Wloch, his wife Kelly, and I drove down about an hour later
from Ludington and met with Dick and Cheryl (the photographer), who showed
us the location where the bird was seen. Afterwards, the three of us
drove/birded to the west, the south, and east of the Smith farm a couple
miles each direction. We did not explore northward as the winds were strong
out of the north. After 1.5 hours of exploring through open farmlands and
sparsely treed habitats, we returned home without any luck.

Directions: The Smith farm house is red and occurs on the north side of
Skeels Road, while a green-roofed barn is on the south (opposite) side of
the road. Skeels Road dead ends 1/2 mile to the west, and all of the
houses/buildings are owned by the Smith's. Though I forgot to get the
address, it is easy to find. From the north (as we came), take the
Fruitvale exit on southbound US 31 and proceed west four miles on Fruitvale
Road to Chase Road. Turn right onto Chase Road and proceed north two miles
until it bears to the left and becomes the countyline road (Skeels Road).
The Smith's red farm house is a short distance to the west on the right.

Lastly, I will be forwarding photos of the BBMA to Mark in the hopes he can
place them on his birding blog tomorrow.

Good Luck !

Dave Dister

working the scrubby Riverside brush in the vicinity of a yellow-rumped warbler. 
2 Eastern Phoebes in the vicinity, also two Merlin's in the vicinity one of 
which appeared to swoop down and grab a bat and then proceed to eat the whole 
thing. 


Note the Say's  Phoebe now has fishing line sticking out of its mouth.

Along with a couple of birders, did not relocate the Say's Phoebe this evening 
between 5-7PM. The last ebird sighting I saw had a sighting at 3:20 PM. 
Carefully searched the river's edge from the Dam along the fishing trails all 
the way to Suicide Bend and back. We did spot a Merlin actively patrolling back 
and fourth over the spillway in front of the Dam, still perched in the trees 
near the brick building when I let. Did not see the little gem get taken out 
though, so hopefully the Say's Phoebe is relocated in the morning. 


Happy Trails,

Carl and Judi Manning, Connie Peoples, and I found the continuing Say's
phoebe about 9:45 a.m. today at the Tippy Dam site. The entire time we were
there, the bird was on top of the dam building actively flying and landing
on the cone-shaped metal vents and on the chimney.  Great looks. through
the scope.

The Say's Phoebe at Tippy dam was found at 5:30 this afternoon.  Doug Cook
and I were able to see it several times at close range at the overflow of
the dam, mostly on the fence and cement walls on the north side.  It was
last seen at 6:15 when it flew to the south side of the dam.

Tippy dam is in the SE of Manistee County.  Best access is from Coates Hwy.
then on Dillings Rd all the way to the end at Tippy Dam Recreation Area
(State park decal required).

Park in the first lot and walk down the steps to the river and turn left
(east) where you will see the dam.  You can walk here along the river up to
the dam and search for the bird near the rocky area before the dam where we
first saw it and in the large cement spillway where it spent most of its
time.

I feel there is a greater than average possibility that the bird will spend
some time in the area as it is sheltered and supplies a food source(midges)
that are scarce elsewhere this time of year.

I was quite surprised to spot a Short-eared Owl sitting out in a barren 
agricultural field in bright sunshine today. This was in the Fish Point area on 
Rogers Road between Allen Road and M-25. Here is a link to a photo:

Subject: Little Gull continues Lenawee/Jackson County
From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Tue, 29 Mar 2016 20:16:09 -0400
Today I decided to try for the Little Gull that has been hanging out at Wampler 
Lake on the Lenawee/Jackson County line. While In Jackson County I got a text 
from Robert Bochenek he was seeing the Little Gull on Wampler Lake at 11 am. I 
got there at 11:55. No sign of the Little Gull so I went several miles to the 
northeast to Thorn Lake, Jackson County where the bird had previously been 
reported and sure enough it was waiting for me at 12:40 p.m. on the south side 
of the road, the only gull there. 


Cheers,

Karl Overman

Subject: NO FURTHER ACCESS to Barry County Varied Thrush
From: Caleb Putnam <caleb.putnam AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 8 Mar 2016 10:26:08 -0500
All-

The Varied Thrush which has been posted to eBird by various observers the
past couple weeks is now no longer accessible. The homeowner let several of
us know that traffic increased and she lost the ability to have folks set
up a viewing time ahead of their visits. It culminated yesterday with her
asking somebody to leave who then proceeded to stay in her driveway in
their car (!). This is very poor birding etiquette and an unfortunate
situation.

>From here on out, this bird is off-limits to the public. I just renamed the
eBird hotspot for this location is entitled "Stakeout Varied Thrush (access
revoked as of March 7)" and this name change may not appear for up to 24
hours. The previous name was "Stakeout Varied Thrush (permission
required)". Please use this new hotspot for all former checklists.

Good Birding,
Caleb Putnam

From: Ken Sapkowski <ksapkowski51 AT gmail.com>

The pair of female Harlequin Ducks found by Curtis Dykstra last Saturday
are now in Grand Haven.  They hang close together and are currently on the
south side of the south pier close to the end.  Current Muskegon County
Nature Club "Birder of the Year", Charles DeWitt located these birds this
morning due to the fact his barber shop didn't open until 10AM and he
showed up at 9.  Viewed from a small mound of sand near the shoreline with
a scope.  One could make their way out on the pier as most of the wide
lower level on the south side is bare cement.  The ducks of course would
just move farther out.  Also present:

1   Surf Scoter
1   White-winged Scoter
10  Red-necked Merganser
2    Common Merganser
12  Goldeneye
2    Mallards
