The Hudsonian Godwit that has been present along the auto drive at Shiawassee 
NWWR in Saginaw County was still present today. It's at the small pond at the 
first observation platform and I almost blew it as it was sleeping in the midst 
of ducks on the shore. I went in the morning on this sunny, hot day and that 
proved not the best timing for viewing birds on most of the auto route. 


Cheers,

Karl Overman

Just received a phone call from Gary Siegrist. His Tuesday morning 
nature group from the Dahlem Conservancy is viewing the St. Johns 
Swallow-tailed Kite at 11:00 am. They were on Avery Road looking south 
toward 127 obtaining great views of the bird. It then moved east towards 
Williams Road.

All:

The Buff-breasted Sandpipers are still here!  I wasn't able to find any
Baird's though.  They were in the north field on the lane east of Booth
Rd.  You need to ask permission at 361 Booth Rd to bird these fields.
Permission is readily given.

A Western Kingbird was seen from the WPBO waterbird shack today. It hung  
around for maybe 45 minutes before disappearing around 1:00. A photo is up on 
 WPBO's facebook page.

Road a thermal and drifted off the West just before 11. Walker road overpass 
will give you better chance to spot it (elevated and good field of view), when 
it is back in the area. Williams and Avery will get you closer.

From: Jim Dawe <jimdawe AT hotmail.com>
Date: Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:14:05 +0000
Mich-listers:

Two Buff-breasted Sandpipers and three Baird's Sandpipers were located last 
evening by several Amish birders on Booth Road in Oscoda County. We relocated 
all five shorebirds this morning at about 8:00 AM; they were still present as 
of 9:30. 


Location - Take M-72/M-33 north of Mio about 3 miles and turn west (left) on 
Kittle Road. Go down Kittle a half mile to Booth Road and turn south (left). 
About a quarter-mile down there is a plowed field on the west (right) side of 
the road just to the north of a white farmhouse - street address is 361. The 
birds were first seen in this field yesterday. They were relocated today 
another 0.2 miles south of this location down a farm lane located on the left 
(east side) of Booth Rd. This lane goes about a quarter mile east and dead-ends 
between two plowed fields where all five sandpipers were observed this morning. 
This is private property, however. The owner, A. J. Yoder, lives at the 361 
Booth Road residence. You need to pull in there and get permission before you 
enter this lane. He's a very nice guy and this shouldn't be a problem. 


Good birding,
Jim Dawe

Date: Fri, 28 Aug 2015 22:29:44 +0000 (UTC)
A late morning - early afternoon outing to Pointe Mouillee yielded some rather 
nice views of shorebirds. I birded the northeast corner of Humphries Unit and 
Cell 3 Unit. Birds seen were: 42 Semipalmated Plover, 14 Killdeer, 1 Ruddy 
Turnstone, 1 Spotted Sandpiper, 1 Willet, 3 Greater Yellowlegs, 9 Lesser 
Yellowlegs, 2 Red Knots, 1 Pectoral SP, 1 Baird's SP, 34 Short-billed 
Dowitcher, 2 Long-billed Dowitcher, 1 Stilt SP, 88 Semipalmated SP (possibly 
more), 9 Sanderling, 1 Avocet, 1 Wilson's Snipe, and some peeps that I could 
not id.  Also of note - 3 Yellow-headed Blackbirds on the Lake Erie side of 
Cell 3 and a Virginia Rail in Cell 3 along the main causeway. 

Monday, August 31 is the final day before Pointe Mouillee SGA closes for 
hunting seasons. 


Cheers,
Edward Tiede

Ryan Dziedzic just called with his sighting of a moulting Hudsonian Godwit
on the Shiawassee NWR auto tour.  It is in a drawn down pond at the corner
of the observation platform as the drive turns from the north to the east
along the Shiawassee River.  Ryan also reported eleven Stilt Sandpipers and
several Short-billed Dowitchers in the same location.

Good Shorebirding!

Houghton Lake Sewage Ponds were active today with both a Buff-breasted 
Sandpiper and an American-golden Plover at the top of the list. There were lots 
of other shorebirds species. Peeps and Killdeer were in large quantities 
providing a good chance for study. 

With the rain tonight these birds may hang around another day.
The staff at the HLSA (Houghton Lake Septic Authority) is birder friendly. 
PLEASE sign in and out at the office. Access is between 8AM and 4PM Monday 
-Friday only. Be sure to complete birding and be out by 4PM to maintain the 
good relationship the staff has with birders. 

The Buffy was on the grass dike running out west from the brick pump house that 
makes all the noise. The pump house, not the office. 


The Golden Plover was around the south cell. The south cell is also the largest 
cell. The bird seemed to hang around the north east corner. 

Keep 'em flying,Greg BodkerHoughton Lake

Level Park Road Location. Eleven TUVU at the Nestle Road Location. Two TUVU 
were perched juveniles with grey/blackish heads that generated some excitement 
but the tails were long. When flying they had the traditional TUVU underwings, 
not black wings with white wingtips.

Now along the treeline extending north from 1484 Walker Rd. which is on the
south side of the expressway. It has been hunting over the soybean fields
here and is now perched at a distance.

The bird was seen intermittently from 3:45 till around 4:30.  It was first
seen at a good distance to the West from a house on N Williams rd South of
Avery near the highway.  It flew over the tree line to the North.  I moved
to Avery West of Williams where the bird was seen at a distance over a tree
line 1/4 mi North of Avery.  I moved to Williams North of Avery for a
better look and was rewarded as the bird flew very close by then out of
sight to the South.  I went back by the house where eventually the bird
soared and glided very close to me for a good 5-10 minutes.  Got great
looks. Wish I was a better photographer.

Birders,

After about a 50 minute period without any sightings, the bird re-appeared 
along the previously noted tree line at around 11 AM. Greg Smith and I had the 
bird over the road about 30 yards in front of us. The road here is North 
Williams Road, north of Walker Road and the tree line is the east-west tree 
line that runs perpendicular to the highway.

Hello all,

Zak Pohlen and I considered ourselves lucky today to refind the
Swallow-tailed Kite at 6:14pm soon after the storm passed at the reported
woodlot. We watched the bird for a few minutes before losing it to the
north. For more information and photos, please see this eBird checklist-

Good birding,

From: Skye Haas <theowlranch AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 23 Aug 2015 18:29:04 -0400
Howdy all,

A jubilant Zak Pohlen and Sean Williams just called me, they just had the
Swallow-tailed Kite at the exact same spot that Dave Cuthrell had it
earlier today. They were able to get a photo of the bird as well.

They lost the bird as it headed northeast.

The coordinates of the woodlot are 43.022740, -84.525677

The woodlot in question is on the north side of US-127 in the long slow
left turn between exits 96 and 99. The intersection of Avery Rd and
Williams Rd abuts the NE end of this woodlot, and I would highly recommend
searching along Avery (west of WIlliams) and WIlliams (south of Avery)

Good luck!

Don't misconstrue what I typed.

My email wasn't directly at Dave Cuthrell for not knowing the proper channels 
nor would I fault anyone for not knowing the channels. I am directing this at 
the people that do know the channels and refuse to use it properly. 


If anyone doesn't want to share bird sightings to a large group such as 
"Michigan Listers" by all means don't, but if a text or email is going to be 
sent and a person is aware of the proper channels I see no reason to not use 
them. 


I don't need you to defend your actions on listing or anyone else's. I think 
the majority of listers would agree that a particular protocol should be 
followed and it's just peculiar when it's not.

Marc, all,

Sometimes details come out at a slower pace than some chasers would like,
but to declare the details garbage and that someone blew an opportunity is
a bit over the top. This is the kind of negativity that can lead to people
being reluctant to share sightings. I think when better information can

other times we just have to use what details there are and be content with
that. No one is ever obligated to report birds and there are a lot of folks
out there that may not even be aware of the forums that can be used to
report sightings.

So patience and respect and I genuinely hope this bird is refound and
everyone who wants to can get to see it. If not, there will be more good
birds in the future. There is always another good bird yet to come.

Subject: Swallow-tailed Kite specifics
From: Caleb Putnam <caleb.putnam AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 23 Aug 2015 15:45:57 -0400
All-

I just spoke with Dave Cuthrell on the phone. At 1:15PM today, 23 Aug 2015,
he had a Swallow-tailed Kite near St. Johns. He was driving northbound
US-127 between exits 96 and 99 and saw the bird in flight above a woodlot,
slammed the brakes, watched it alone from the shoulder of US-127 for over 2
minutes before continuing on.

The coordinates of the woodlot are 43.022740, -84.525677

The woodlot in question is on the north side of US-127 in the long slow
left turn between exits 96 and 99. The intersection of Avery Rd and
Williams Rd abuts the NE end of this woodlot, and I would highly recommend
searching along Avery (west of WIlliams) and WIlliams (south of Avery),
watching the top of the woodlot for this bird. Dave said it perched and
spent the entire time flying around the top of the woodlot, and even caught
an insect. As he left, the bird was still lingering around this woodlot.

Good luck, and please post immediately if you refind this bird- a lot of us
still need it for Michigan and would be interested in chasing it.

Good birding,
Caleb Putnam

Getting to the location:

Exit 16 on US-96 is one of the Coopersville exits.  Head south on 68th Ave
about 1 mile then turn east onto Garfield St and proceed 1.5 miles.  There
is a sign for the waste treatment plant.  Turn north and you will see a
gate and a lagoon staight ahead.  This is not the right lagoon, so turn
right and head a little ways east you will see a dirt pile with Bank
Swallow holes.  From just beyond the dirt pile look north.  (You'll need a
scope.)  The bird  is feeding along the north edge of this lagoon and has
been present 4 days now.    Ken Sapkowski

There are two Stilt Sandpipers at this site. One in non-breeding plumage that 
was in one of my pics. Id highly advise visiting this site early in the day. 
Later at night the backlighting is brutal.

Checked pool 1A for these birds around 5pm. Neither was present but a
Wilson's Phalarope was foraging around the grassy area where the terns and
dabbling ducks were congregating.

Friends, A couple of birds to mention. A Ruff was seen at about 11:00 AM this 
morning in Pool 1A. It was about 80 yards out to the east of the parking area 
adjacent to the pool. (Had to have a scope at 50X to get some details.) It had 
scalloping on the back feathers, a shorted bill than the lesser yellowlegs 
there and was lighter about the neck than the other birds there. It was working 
the shallow water in the back close to the Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs there. 
It didn't stay out in the open long as it went back behind some reeds to the 
right of that area. Also in that area, a Buff-breasted Sandpiper was seen. It 
was all buff about the head, neck and breast. A small patch of black on the 
crown and dark eye made it easy to identify. It didn't appear until almost 11 
AM also. It did its feeding in the grassy area that almost appeared to be on 
land. Lots of other stuff there (Sandhill Cranes - 90, Canada Goose, Caspian 
Terns, Forster's Terns, egret, herons, etc.) Don BurlettOxford, MI

From: Don Henise <kiskadee3 AT yandex.com>

The female Blue Grosbeak was observed this Saturday afternoon and a male 
was also heard singing.

The female was seen in the previously reported location west of the 
northern parking lot of Sharon Mills County Park. This lot is near the 
corner of Sharon Hollow Road and Pleasant Lake Road. From the parking 
lot make your way past the tree line to the west and look in the area 
near the cotton wood trees that will be in the tree line to the left 
once you pass the fist tree line. Listen for the distinctive loud 
metallic "chink" call note.  We heard a male sing once as we were making 
our way toward that location. He sang from the first small group of 
trees west of the parking lot.

Just before 6 am I had a flock of ten Black-bellied whistling ducks flying 
north over Lee Rd by the Lake Erie metro park golf course. They dropped down 
out of sight and appeared to be landing. Presumably these are the same group 
seen earlier this spring. Not sure how far this is from the other sightings.

All,

Rick Brigham, Dave Powell, and I tried for the White-winged Dove near Three
Rivers this morning without success. (No lack of Mourning Doves of course).

In addition to searching from the road, we went to the Pine View Golf Club
and they were very kind to allow us to walk on the course as long as we
were mindful of golfers. We did this and walked a ways down to the
indicated house.

Thanks to Zachary Frieben for the nice find and the info!

Good birding,
Chace Scholten

All, just want to provide some more info for those that are searching tomorrow. 
It's my birthday and I decided to take the whole family "to the beach". We 
arrived at 11:30 and the bird was not seen till 4:30. It appears that midday 
might not be a good time to look for the bird. Also, it appears to be spending 
time inland up the river, so driving the river might be a good idea. 


Also, Silver Lake Beach is a total mad house on the weekend, took a half an 
hour just get get into the parking lot. 


The best birthday gift!

Birders, 
I just sighted a beautiful adult White-winged Dove on Pulver Road in Three 
Rivers, MI. I was busy so I didn't really have time to do much, but I got a 
crappy pic with my phone. It sang, and I couldn't believe my ears, and then I 
saw it atop a satellite dish at 52779 Pulver Road, Three Rivers, MI.  

If you decide to come here, you can try seeing it from the road, or you can 
knock on the door at 52779 and let them know that "Someone reported seeing a 
rare bird around here." She is nice but I'm not sure how she reacts to 
strangers. Be aware of that. For more info, you can call me at 269-203-5822.  

This could be the same White-winged Dove that was sighted in Middlebury, IN 
about a month ago.  

Good luck! 
Zachary Frieben

Birders,

Tim Baerwald just called to report a Frigatebird is currently present at the
mouth of the St. Joe River in Berrien County. He also said a couple of local
fisherman told him they've been seeing it for a couple of days.

The river mouth is accessible from Silver Beach County Park and the south
pier on the south and from Tiscornia Beach Park on the north. The north pier
is currently closed for construction/repair.  Both parks are fee areas.  Tim
also found Willets and Marbled Godwits on the beach north of the river -
almost to Jean Klock Park at last sighting.

Good birding,

Kip Miller

Birders,

Last evening a co-worker sent me message describing a large black bird with
a forked tail, long pointed wings and white head circling over the mouth of
the St. Joseph River in St. Joseph, Berrien County. (Silver Beach County
Park is on the south side of river mouth, Tiscornia Beach Park is on the
north side.) He noted it was larger than any gulls and did little flapping.

Seemed like a decent description of an immature/sub adult frigatebird to me
and I've since learned there was a sighting of a frigatebird in Chicago on
Wednesday, last seen flying north.   

Good birding,

Kip Miller

Curious if anyone knows more about this?  I saw via the eBird Michigan rare 
bird alert that one has recently been visiting feeders at a residence in 
Calhoun County. 

Myself and I'm sure lots of other birders would love to see it -- if it is 
indeed what the person claims it is.  Are there any previous records of a 
Painted Bunting in Michigan?

Got good looks at the TCHE as it circled about a quarter of the way out to
the point. It flew out of sight towards the north part of the bay. I
searched the light house area and Sandy hook but did not relocate.

This afternoon about 2:45 pm, Jean Ketchum phoned me to report pelicans at the 
south end of Maple Lake in Paw Paw. This is where Red Arrow Highway crosses 
over the lake. I was able to get there in the few minutes. There were seven 
birds, in all, with some fairly wide variation in size. Several had the grayish 
heads consistent with what Sibley and Nat Geo refer to as the "Chick-feeding 
plumage." I didn't have my camera with me, but was able to get some ok shots 
through my scope with my phone. Jean reported a little while ago that when she 
went back to town at 6PM, the birds were still present. 

    Below is a link to one of the photos I posted on my FB page.

Just got home from Maple Lake in Paw Paw, where Jean Ketchum and I enjoyed 
great views of seven American White Pelicans. This is the south end of Maple 
Lake, visible from Red Arrow Highway. Be warned there is construction and road 
closures going on around here that make it a challenge to get to this location.

This species is on the Van Buren County checklist, but interestingly, I don't 
see any ebird entries at all. (Other than the one I am about to make. )

Birders,

The Lark Bunting was on its new territory, mentioned earlier by Chace,
until I left it at 8pm this evening. It hugs the far west edge of the
prairie strip along 58th St. across from the red gate. Although it is
perhaps further from the road than it was in its former location the bird
is much more consistently visible singing atop mullein stalks and
performing its wonderful display flight. It has now been present for 10
days.

I would like to express my appreciation to those who have continually
followed the stipulations set forth by the state game area staff. Abiding
by these requisites has maintained access to this rarity and other great
grassland birds. Please continue to comply with their guidelines:

Do not go off road into the prairie habitat. This is breeding season and
the majority of grassland birds here are ground dwellers whose nests can
easily be trampled. The views from the roads are plenty adequate for
birders and photographers alike.

Do not block gates with vehicles. This is especially true for the red gate
on 58th St.

Do not block the road with your vehicle. There is plenty of shoulder along
paved 58th St. to park on. In the case of 59th St., where the bunting
originally was found, park in the grassy lot at the south end and walk the
short distance down the gravel road to view.

Thank you and good birding!

Rick Brigham

All,

The Allegan SGA Lark Bunting continues this morning. It is now singing and
displaying on the west side of 58th (fifty-eighth) between 117th and 116th,
perching on the mullein stalks. Just to the north of the red gate along
58th. This is the field that Clay-colored Sparrow frequents. We originally
watched this bird fly here from its original territory west of 59th
(fifty-ninth) street.
