Mich-listers:

The female Harlequin Duck previously reported at the DNR boat launch in East 
Tawas, Iosco County, was again today. The bird remained within 100 meters of 
the parking lot for at least an hour and was seen on both sides of the paved 
walkway that juts out into the small bay. Also present at this location was a 
1st cycle Thayer's Gull. 


Good birding,

Jim Dawe

Folks- The long stay Crested Caracara that was present in Munising in the UP of 
Michigan disappeared recently. This location near Wawa is about 205 km NE of 
Munising so one would have to be suspicious it is the same individual. Of 
course that is right across Lake Superior which I wouldn’t think of as an 
attractive route for a Caracara but who knows. Interesting regardless. Kirk

This is late notice but I was able to check for the Black-throated Gray 
Warbler seen by Kathy Kaczynski at the Lighthouse West Nature Preserve 
near the tip of the Leelanau penninsula on November 24th.

She had seen the bird with a flock of chickadees between the two 
stairways on the Glacier Trail.  I spent a bit over an hour yesterday 
morning with good conditions and was able to call in a large mixed flock 
at two locations near the spot she saw the warbler.  I unfortunately was 
not able to see the bird but the aura still hung in the air.

has already been reported by someone else.

Listers, when you post to Mich-Listers or Mich-Chat), please always include
the county in your heading.  Such as Little Gull in Ottawa County.
Otherwise, many birders will not know where your rare bird was seen.

Thanks.

around the Lions Pavilion and inside the breakwater. Gulls and Red-breasted 
Mergs.

Reported by Bradley Anderson on Wednesday.  Same old location. I've heard
it refered to as "The Blowout",  " the easy Prairie Warbler spot", and the
area behind the picnic shelter.  The tall juniper in the SW corner is a
good spot to look.

in closer to shore but moved way out as I struggled to digisscope. At

From: Chris D <cdew77 AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 16 Nov 2016 18:17:39 -0500
Hello all,

The Flycatcher was seen at 3:30 directly south of the point where the paved
road turns to gravel.  It was in a group of trees hanging out near the
apex, flying out to grab mosquitos and returning.  Craig Schafer re-located
the bird after it had previously been spotted on the north side of the
road, behind some homes.

The Scribner's (very nice people btw) would like everyone to know that if
you head down to the Fish Point lodge you could check-in with the lodge
owner.  They would appreciate some notice and will most likely let you park
and/or walk down the road to locate the bird.  Good luck!

Chris D.

I saw the Vermilion Flycatcher initially from the road just after 2 p.m. as
it perched briefly on a TV antenna. It was relocated a few minutes later,
and watched continuously for more than 45 minutes, as it was flycatching
across a channel behind the homes on the left (north) side of the road. The
first building on your left immediately after leaving the pavement is a
light green shed, with a grassy area with an old tractor parked there. Walk
left to the back of the shed to scan the channel. Before accessing this
private property, you MUST obtain permission from the land owners, Doug and
Chris  Demming, who are at the Fish Point Lodge/Marina a short distance
east along the gravel road. Thanks to Chuck and Linda Scribner for this
access information.

From: ryne rutherford <BiophiliaLLC AT hotmail.com>
Date: Wed, 16 Nov 2016 00:33:12 +0000
Juvenile male/female (far less red than the U.P. birds) at Fish Point Wildlife 
Area this evening. Observed at the far north end of Ringle Rd around the 
houses. It was seen on the edge of the large lagoon across from address marking 
4156 and behind a large gray shed and two small houses to the left. It spent 
most of its time in a small patch of shrubs covered with vines on the left side 
of the opening. It was seen flying up, grabbing bugs and returning to the same 
spot. The bird can be seen from the road. Birders must be very respectful in 
this area. I had an encounter with a less than friendly landowner last fall. 
However, I did get permission to go behind the gray shed and scope out the 
abundant waterfowl a couple months ago, but be sure to ask permission before 
going back there for a better look. 


The bird was first seen around 4:30 pm and I stayed until almost dusk, so I 
suspect it will stick around. 


I'll post photos to ebird later this evening.


Best,

Ryne

Unfortunately the SAGS seems to have moved on. Although not chaseable, 
congratulations to WPBO waterbird counter Eric Ripma who broke the single 
season record for waterbird species today with an Ancient Murrelet. A very nice 
bird to break the record with!

Yes, thanks for the correction, Maggie, of my hastily worded comment. This 
species of course migrates from south from its Great Basin habitat, where the 
winters are brutal. What I should have said is that it has thus far shown--to 
my knowledge--next to no tendency of vagrancy from its limited N-S movements.

"This species is relatively sedentary, and its wanderings are limited.”

The above statement by Macklin Smith is not so.

The following source: Sparrows of the United States and Canada, David Beadle 
and James Rising, page 120, states “Migrates throughout the west and west 
Texas." 



I arrived around 1:30 and saw the Sagebrush Sparrow three times in the next

half hour in the "memory lane" path near the lighthouse. There has been a

lot of seed scattered there--and thanks to whoever did that. My sense, from

observation and anecdotes, is that the bird is simply walking off and

skulking close by, also at times flitting a bit further afield. As has been

said, no need to walk that path; indeed, doing so will disrupt the pattern

we've been witnessing.



By the way, this is an extraordinary and unexpected record. This species is

relatively sedentary, and its wanderings are limited.

The Sagebrush Sparrow is feeding on seed along memory lane. If you stand by the

You must also be aware that many folks use ebird primarily to manage/fatten 
their lists, not as a contribution to science.  I encountered a very 
bizarre list from a well known Michigan birder - the entire single day list 
for the UP and with a pre-ebird date was composed entirely of very uncommon 
to rare birds.  Obviously a case of an historical submission cobbled 
together from many trips and probably from memory for the sole purpose of 
fattening a list.  The commingling of science and listing in ebird is 
widespread and maybe ebird needs to find a way to tease them apart.  Matt

[Mich-chat] Improper eBird protocol use at rarity stakeouts   
All:  While you are enjoying these amazing rarities (and also in general) 
please make every effort to use proper eBird protocol. There are a lot of 
improper checklists being entered at both the Fork-tailed Flycatcher and 
Sagebrush Sparrow right now.  Please do not use a complete 
stationary/traveling count unless you are making a concerted effort to ID 
every species present by sight and sound, and including every one of these 
on your list. You should not have only 2-3 species on any complete 
stationary/traveling count this time of year. Every flyby gull (Larus sp.), 
every distant croaking Common Raven, every flyby goldfinch, every 
Black-capped Chickadee and Red-breasted Nuthatch vocalizing quietly nearby 
must be included, or this is an incomplete checklist, or if you only 
include the rarity itself, arguably an incidental checklist. At the FTFL in 
an hour I recorded 27 taxa, for example, yet many complete checklists there 
have only 2-3 species. A similar disparity exists at WPBO.  Stationary and 
traveling counts indicate that birding was the primary purpose of your 
visit. Incidental means you weren't birding. If you chase a rarity and are 
ignoring all the other species whole you focus on the vagrant, this is an 
incidental checklist.  Here is some more information about this topic: 
https://teamebirdmichigan.wordpress.com/2015/10/25/proper-ebird-protocol/  
Please let your local reviewer know if you have any questions. Enjoy the 
rarities!  Good birding, Caleb Putnam

Lyle Bontrager, Garrett Dawe, and I quickly located the Menominee Fork-tailed 
Flycatcher mid-day today in the immediate vicinity of the North Shore Golf 
Course Club House. We watched the bird for an hour as it moved from the club 
house (feeding on berries in the landscape shrubbery) to the bushy shoreline 
area along M-35 just across from the club house parking lot.

Leonard Graf just found a Sagebrush Sparrow along the sandy trail that leads 
out to the beach from the corner of the parking lot near the Seney kiosk. For 
anyone chasing it, I would just walk in that trail 30 feet or so and watch the 
trail. The bird was extremely cooperative and would come very close to us 
before going out towards the dune, then it would work its way back towards us 
again. I unfortunately have to head downstate so I cannot stake it out. I will 
post a photo to WPBO's facebook page.

The bird was showing well at the time I left on Sunday at 3:45 PM CST. It was 
giving great views in the shrubs on the lake side of the road. When I 1st got 
there at 2:45 is was high in a deciduous tree on the other side of the road.

The fork-tailed flycatcher continues at the same spot, currently across the 
road from the green barns. 


Thanks everyone for all the posts keeping all the rest of us in the loop. 

Stay classy Michigan.

At 5pm ish Gary refound the bird at the house across from the boat launch
at the north end of where the bird was all day. This was after it had flew
high and what was thought to be away (phew!) We watched it fly across the
road and land over by the phragmites and willows out on the water just
south of the boat launch. It flew down into the vegetation and there it
remains (hopefully) for its evening roost.
Good luck to all on the morning! Bird on!

I watched this bird, on and off, from about 11:30am - 12:30pm today. It was
on the Lake side of M-35 the entire time, sometimes perched in the shrubs
(and giving great looks), sometimes hunkered down lower out view, also

No Purple Sandpiper that was found by Dave Dister yesterday.  I arrived at
8:30 on this pleasant morning and checked the south pier for one hour.

All-

Rick Brigham and several others are viewing the Fork-tailed Flycatcher on
M-35 south of Birch Creek Rd. on M-35 in Munising as of dawn, 4 Nov 2016. I
have no additional information about where exactly it is, but I believe it
is in the same place as last night.

I created an eBird hotspot pin at this location entitled:

M-35 south of Birch Creek (Stakeout Fork-tailed Flycatcher 2016)

It may take up to 24 hours for this to show up in the system.

Good Birding,
Caleb Putnam

Greetings,

I just spoke with Louie Domboski who was the last one on the Fork-tailed
tonight just prior to sunset. He said that the bird was seen a several
times this evening on M-35 a quarter mile south of Birch Creek Rd. It was
in brush and tree tops on both sides of the road. It was mostly hanging
around between two large buildings on the land side of the road. It was
last seen going into low brush on the lakeside of the road hopefully to
roost. Lake Michigan comes close to the road along this stretch. Keep in
mind that you enter the Central Time Zone crossing from Delta into
Menominee Co's. It sounds like there will be numerous birders searching for
the bird in the morning. See some of you there!

Good luck!
Rick
