received a confirmation on the Ibis that Bob & Mary Pratt found in May in
Gratiot Co.

Subject: Ibis at Shiawassee NWR Continues - 9/23/16
From: Joe Soehnel <soehnelj AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:44:27 -0400
The Ibis (many reporting as Glossy) at Shiawassee NWR was observed again
today, Sep 23rd, in Pool 1A area.  Alan Ryff saw it fly from the south side
of Pool 1A to the north end at 4:30PM.  I was conducting a waterbird survey
so was on the east side of Pool 1A and it flew by me and landed in an area
that I could not see at 5:30PM.  Shortly thereafter, it was observed from
the wildlife drive by Alan and his friend as it fed briefly on the eastern
edge of Pool 1A then flew back to the north end of Pool 1A.

Your best bet would be to scope Pool 1A and be patient.

Good Fall Birding!

Joe Soehnel

Glossy Ibis flew in from the west at 6:55 from near where it roosted last night 
and flew east to the pond with the Trumpeter Swans. Flew back west at 7:15. 
Scope views at swan pond.

The Ibis returned to land in the muddy creek on the West side of the road
with some egrets. A Harrier spooked it to the North and we didn't see where
it landed, but it is likely still around.

I just observed the Ibis leave its roost to the north of Pool 1A. It landed
near the Grefe Tower for about 5 minutes, then took off and was last seen
flying south over the treeline. I will keep an eye out for a bit, but have
limited time.

Ibis was found in Shiawassee today, pool 1A. Most likely a Glossy. Photos are 
posted to ebird via Steven Kahl. Originally seen around 2pm. 

Was refound at 7pm by Bob, Darrell and Craig. Appeared to be flying back to the 
roosting area.

Greetings,

The Black-necked Stilt found by Chip Franke yesterday is still in the
northwest cell of the Coopersville Waste Water Facility, Ottawa Co. It has
mostly been feeding along the western edge. I had no problem being
admitted. Pull up to the call box, buzz the office and ask if you can bird
the facility.

Good luck!

I found a black-necked stilt about 3 pm today at the Coopersville
Wastewater Treatment facility off Garfield Rd. (east of 68th and the
dump).  The plant is closed for the day and it is unlikely the bird can be
seen from outside the fence as it was in the very northwest cell.

This is a first Ottawa County record.  For anyone wishing to see this bird,
I will meet you at the entrance to the wastewater plant at 7 pm tonight.  I
have a key to get in.  The gate will be locked behind us, so don't be
late.  Otherwise you can take your chances and go to the plant tomorrow
when workers are present.  I don't know what time they get there.  If the
gate is closed, buzz the buzzer and they may let you in.

All, I was in downtown Sault Ste. Marie around noon and a Frigatebird flew
over head. Unfortunately, I had no phone, binoculars, or camera. The bird
was flying south over town before I lost it. Due to prior commitments, I
cannot look for it along the river or lakes up here. If anyone is in the
EUP it may be worth looking for it.

Good luck,

Joseph Lautenbach h

Ed Smith found 2 white Pelicans at 1pm in a farmers pond on the north side of 
M61 west of Harrison. The pond is between Harding and Bringold road 
approximately 6 miles west of town. 

M61 is closed at business 127 for about mile due to a street fair, so follow 
the detour posted to get back on M61 west. 

Jerry and Patti Calvert viewed both Pelicans with Ed at 2pm, swimming in the 
pond. They have been spending time hidden along shore. Scope recommended.

Here is an update on the Blue Grosbeaks in Oakland County along M-5 south of 14 
Mile Road by Jeff Ouimet: 


The male grosbeak was seen as late as 6:30 yesterday evening. He was just south 
of 14 mile off the path, near the deer crossing sign on M5. It is closer than 
if you went to the nest. You can hear him when the traffic clears. There was no 
sign of the female and fledglings. I hope they survived. The grass and weeds 
near the nest was trampled down much more than when I was there last week. 

 
Regards,
 
Jeff

Subject: Cattle Egret - Allegan County
From: Tim Cornish <timcornish4470 AT sbcglobal.net>
Date: Wed, 17 Aug 2016 23:14:30 -0400
Greetings,
Earlier this evening I found a Cattle Egret in Watson Township (between Martin 
and Allegan). 


Below is a detailed explanation I provided to our local birding group to help 
others who might try to re-find this bird. Also attached are links to the two 
checklists associated with it. 


"Hello all,
Here's the scoop on the cattle Egret. I spotted it initially in a wet field 
adjacent to 19th st (just south of M-222 (also known as 116th ave)). An ebird 
list with photos will be posted after giving this update. 


The bird flew south-east (along with the four Great Egrets that were with it). 
It flew to a swamp/marsh that sets back off of the road on the west side of 
16th street (obscured by private property). A home owner was gracious enough to 
allow me to park in their drive and let me walk back through the soybean field 
and look for it. I spotted it in flight and briefly perching with Great Egrets. 
Rick B. later joined me but the CAttle Egret had evidently already retreated 
into heavy foliage to roost. The homeowner said they have seen it not only 
there but also at another location along 16th st. 


If you want to search for it (I believe it should be able to be refound, 
especially as it apparently associates with Great Egrets which are easy to 
spot) there are several key places along a simple country block that are worth 
checking. 

The block boundaries are M-222 (116th Ave) on the north, 16th st on the east, 
114th ave on the south, and 19th st on the east. 

Places to keep an eye on: 
1. The wet field where I originally found it on 19th st. This is just south of 
222 and on the east side of the road. 

2. The plowed wet field on 114th ave just east of 19th st. beyond the corn 
field. This is where I found the Buff Breasted Sandpiper this morning. Some 
Great Egrets were observed here by others so it's likely the Cattle Egret might 
visit there as well. 

3. The swamp that is barely visible from the road (west of 16th st). This is a 
remote possibility since very little of the swamp/pond/marsh is visible from 
the road. I don't think it would be wise to over extend our requests of private 
homeowners to tromp their property. But since this appears to be a current (and 
according to the homeowner a recently consistent) roosting area, keep an eye 
out for flyovers. 

4. "The Pony Swamp" - the homeowner said they have seen the bird here. This is 
a small, really wet swampy field right next to 16th st(west side) just south of 
M-222. This is just beyond the side drive entrance to Watson Bible Church. 
There are often a couple of horses/ponies grazing in this spot. 


Lots of good birds to be found. hope that helps. Because the birds are actively 
moving - at least today- patient birding of this country block (always watching 
for flying birds also) seems likely to yield another sighting for someone. 

Blessed birding!
Tim Cornish "

Subject: possible King Rail, Arcadia Marsh, Manistee County
From: Brian <manisteebirder AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 16 Aug 2016 12:22:36 -0400
As this is out there already I wanted to mention that Carl Freeman and I 
heard a few calls that MAY have been a King Rail, including the 
"kek-kek-kek" and the more booming grunting call.  I am not at all 
confident that this is a King Rail but to both of us it did seem 
different than the Virginia Rails that we are very familiar with.

We have not seen the rail and cannot verify it, this is just a hunch 
that it could be possible.  The call was heard from the footbridge to 
the dike access from the Marsh Preserve parking lot on the east side of 
M-22 just before coming into the south end of the village of Arcadia.

I tried again with calls last night at dusk at the footbridge with no 
luck.  I moved down to the M-22 causeway and heard another of the deeper 
grunting calls in dense cattails just about 50 meters north of the 
bridge construction stop sign.

Will keep trying!

BA

facility workers are used to birders on site and we'd like to keep it that
way!  So let's be curteous to both the bird and the facility staff!  What a

All,

I realize the rarity of this post but had to be certain before I sent out a
note.  I have spent the last 3-4 hrs in touch with shorebird expert Greg
Neise on Facebook and he and others have confirmed my sighting of
SHARP-TAILED SANDPIPER today at the Muskegon Wastewater Treatment
Facility.  I have photos upon request.  They will be in the ebird checklist
also.  The bird was sighted at about 11:00am today in the westernmost empty
aeration cell.

Good birding!

Greetings,

The Crested Caracara remains at the mouth of the Anna River in Munising,
Alger Co. as of yesterday as per my brother Dave Brigham. Photos obtained.
Thought this might be of interest as there haven't been any posts of
sightings lately.

Good birding!

From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Sun, 7 Aug 2016 19:44:41 -0400
The nesting pair of Blue Grosbeaks in western Oakland were still very active as 
of 6:15 p.m. Remarkably the species was found yesterday along the bike path on 
the west side of busy M-5 expressway south of 14 Mile Road. The female is 
carrying food. Given the location and the volume of birders/photographers 
likely to visit to site thanks to Facebook, anybody who feels the urge to get 
off either the shoulder of the M-5 (actually illegal and a bad idea anyway) or 
the bike path to try to get a killer photo or to find the nest, should be 
shot—figuratively speaking of course. 


Even at this late hour a steady stream of birders were coming to see the bird. 
The best option is to park at Robert Long Park, cross busy 14 Mile Road and 
then walk east to M-5 and take the bike path south on the west side of the 
road. 


They are very noisy, chipping away at each other so detecting them should be 
easy.

I also checked Ludington Harbor from 9:15 to 10:15 AM, and then the
Ludington Pumped Storage Reservoir and outlet area, both without any sign
of the Common Eider.

Correction: this bird appears to be the *2nd *LP record, with the 1st
record of a bird seen in Monroe County (Pte. Mouillee SGA) during the
summer of 2003.

    Early this morning around 8:10 a.m. Van Burmeister found and
    photographed a female or immature *Common Eider *at Ludington
    Harbor, near the inside bend of the south breakwater. He contacted
    Mark Wloch who later was able to find the bird off the north end of
    the south breakwater before it was flushed by a pleasure boat (see

    about 10:40 a.m., and hasn't been re-located yet.

    This appears to be the *first summer record* for this eider in the
    Lower Peninsula. Note that the head feathering extends down to the
    nostril, which is diagnostic. Strangely, the much more likely King
    Eider has yet to be recorded in Mason County.

    Congratulations to Van for his early birding, which proved to be
    rewarding !

  Saw and photographed a possible female Common Eider just outside the
south breakwater at Ludington Harbor this morning.  It was spooked by a
pleasure boat and flew to outside the north pier.  Posted photos on my
blog.

All,

I'm currently enjoying the company of a singing male Blue Grosbeak in the 
Sharonville SGA. Specifically, this bird is in the grassland on Sharon Valley 
Rd. north of Lamb Rd. A small parking lot is just northwest of where Lamb Rd. 
runs into Sharon Valley Rd. 


>From the parking lot, you'll see a large grassland to the east (a few 
Henslow's are still singing here). Walk east across the grassland to a small 
line of trees. The bird (a first summer male) is singing in this line of trees. 


Good birding,
-Cody Porter

Birders, 




I am posting this on behalf of Jen Owen, associate professor at MSU. I have 
received permission from Karl to post this even though there is no rare bird 
information. Thanks Karl 





Bruce Cohen 







Hi MI Birders! Next year at this time we will be hosting the national 
ornithological society meetings here at MSU!!! For that meeting we will have 
organized field trips that may be 1/2, full, or 2 day(s). We want to pick the 
best places for this time of year and we need help over next couple weeks 
getting people out birding at these places and then either reporting via eBird 
or sending us the species list. Here are some of our top sites (we already have 
a KIWA covered). Let us know if there are other places you recommend as well. 
Please email lists to me at owenj AT msu.edu.

Three of our friends tried for an hour and a half this morning, trying to find 
the C. C. with no luck, searching around the Anna River mouth area. I'll be in 
town this afternoon and will give it another look. So, more later.

We saw the subject bird again today, dismantling what looked like a rabbit or 
hare carcass, from 1:15 to 2:00pm in the mowed field just East of the boat 
launch at the Anna River mouth. Since no one else reported it to the list, we 
thought we should, hence this late post.

Tom Heatley, Jim Fowler, Andy Parsons, and Bob Pettit saw CRCA from 10 am to 
10:56 am. 

Bird in dead tree nearest main road. Red-wing Blackbird harassing CRCA. It flew 
east and was resighted in tall tree. It returned to dead tree. Now flew 
southeast. Should return. 

Local folks have seen it and are surprised birders are here. Talk with locals 
please. Share photos. 


Cheers,
Bob
