Subject: Eared Grebe Lake Odessa Sewage ponds, Oct 1
From: "brambling AT juno.com" <brambling@juno.com>
Date: Wed, 1 Oct 2014 23:43:43 GMT
Birded the lake odessa sewage ponds today and despite all of the construction 
activity, there were quite a few birds around. Mostly waterfowl starting to 
move in and in with all of the ducks I had a winter plumaged Eared Grebe. I 
studied the bird for about an hour and managed to get a few decent pictures 
even with the overcast skies and bad lighting. The bird is in the largest pond 
which is the second pond in from the farthest east pond. It is only visible by 
walking in and would not be seen when the gates are closed. The gates are open 
Monday thru Friday from 7 to 3:30. There were still a handful of shorebirds 
around but nothing of interest. Did have my first fall divers mixed in with all 
of the regular dabbling ducks. The entrance to the ponds is on Harwood Rd. just 
west of M66. Good Birding. Kevin ThomasIonia MI

Subject: Eaton G. White-fronted Goose flock continues
From: dmcwhir513 AT aol.com
Date: Wed, 1 Oct 2014 19:10:14 -0400
Folks -

 The gaggle of 6 Greater White-fronted Goose continues at the Potterville 
Sewage Lagoons. 


 Saw them at 1500 this afternoon. Marc North has been keeping track of them and 
says they are more often there in the afternoon. They are in the lowest 
lagoons, the two on the north end of things. If the site is not open, they can 
be observed from the subdivision to the north, off Gresham Road. 


   Thanks to Marc, my 250th species for Eaton County .... my fame is assured.

Another nice day in Michigan.   - Doug McWhirter

From: scott hickman <suboscine AT hotmail.com>

An adult Little Gull in basic plumage was flying over Lake Superior near the 
mouth of the AuTrain River at about noon today. It flew fairly close to shore 
then meandered farther out over the lake where it joined some Ring-billed Gulls 
that were floating on the water. They all eventually took flight and I lost 
them from view before I could determine if the Little Gull's departure 
direction was east or west. I checked the nearby Lake Superior scenic pull-outs 
as well as AuTrain Lake, but was unable to relocate the bird. Scott

Greetings,

Curtis Dykstra, Chace Scholten, Mary Lou Graham and I did a fresh water
pelagic today to 12 miles off Saugatuck and had a very cooperative
Parasitic Jaeger. It performed for us at 2 miles out and again at about 8
miles for at least 40 mins altogether. We are all in agreement that it was
the same bird in both encounters. Here are links to some images:

I noticed on ebird that a single Hudsonian Godwit was seen at Sterling State 
Park in Monroe County on Saturday so I went to see if it is still around and it 
is. I saw it (scope probably needed) in the large lagoon on the west side of 
the park where the water has been drawn down.

Just a thought, but when we were waiting for it yesterday under similar 
circumstances, we decided that we might have been encroaching on its comfort 
zone. We were originally situated on the road at the edge of the grass of the 
homeowners property, and when the bird briefly showed up hovering over the 
day-lilies and quickly left, we decided to move across the street and watch 
from the opposite side. Shortly thereafter the bird reappeared and fed at 
flowers near door and then feeders.

All-

At least one carload of lower peninsula birders is considering the trip
north for the Berylline Hummingbird right now for today (9/22) and would
really appreciate knowing if anyone has seen (or tried and not seen) the
bird today.

When I arrived at 2:15 p.m. the Berylline Hummingbird had been coming in
every 20 minutes or so from about noon onward, and did come in within a few
minutes of my arrival. It was regular (every 20-30 min) until I left at

I must have missed any past posts with links to photos of the 
hummingbird.  Can someone send me a link where I can see photos?

Thanks,

I checked on Google earth as Scott said "take H58 northeast" and Caleb 
said turn left on H-58 which is contradictory.  On the map Adams and 
H-58 intersection is northwest of the village of Grand Marais so you 
would turn left as Caleb said.  Hope this helps the lucky ones that can go.

The Berylline Hummingbird (or some extremely similar and even more 
unikely Amazilla sp. other than Buff-bellied) seen in Grand Marais 
yesterday and missed by all of us who looked for it today evidently 
spent the day at a feeder closer to town.  The directions given to me 
are: From Munising, take H58 northeast into the outskirts of Grand 
Marais.  On the edge of town, there will be a white garage on the left 
(north) side of the road.  This is on the corner of H58 and Adams.  
Directly across Adams from the garage, also on the north side of H58, 
there will be a trailer-shaped home with an added on garage "and a lot 
of flowers".  The bird was coming to the feeder on the west side of this
 house next to a sliding glass door.  Good luck!  Scott

All-

I was asked to post this clarification: for those coming from the lower
peninsula or eastern UP, do not go to Munising or you will be driving 80
miles out of your way. Instead, take 77 north from M28 at Seney MI and turn
left on H58 when you hit Grand Marais. Adams will be the sixth street you
encounter.

Good Birding,
Caleb Putnam

The Berylline Hummingbird (or some extremely similar and even more unikely
Amazilla sp. other than Buff-bellied) seen in Grand Marais yesterday and

H58 northeast into the outskirts of Grand Marais.  On the edge of town,

Hello all,

Unfortunately our small group of 11 hopeful birders did not see the
Berylline Hummingbird today. My group was there from predawn till 11am and
we had no sighting of this amazing vagrant to the shores of Superior. I
know a few folks were going to stick it out a few more hours, but at this
point, another sighting seems very unlikely. Hopefully the photos taken
yesterday will be enough for the record's committee review, though I'm sure
they will have to consider other species from this tropical genus of
hummingbirds.

A pity.. a once in a lifetime sighting.

Bird on!

I have received numerous inquiries concerning the possible Berylline 
Hummingbird in Grand Marais.  The photos I was sent from Evelyn Wood 
indicate Berylinne Hummingbird to all who have seen them.  Several of us 
will be in Grand Marais before dawn today to try and see the bird for 
ourselves and to provide documentation to individuals with 
sufficient hummingbird experience to  verify the i.d.  I will be sure 
that someone with computer access is called to post if the bird is still
 present.  Scott

What appears to be a Berylline Hummingbird, or some similar appearing member of 
the Amazilla genus, evidently spent today visiting a feeder near Grand Marais, 
MI. The homeowner says birders may come to see the bird, which should be viewed 
from the road. The house can be reached by driving H58 northeast from Munising 
toward Grand Marais. Shortly after passing the Grand Sable Visitor Center, H58 
will make a sharp turn to the left (north). Follow H58 to the north and then 
make a right hand turn onto Mixon Rd. The home with the bird will be the first 
home encountered, and will be on the right hand (south) side of the street. The 
feeder the bird is visiting is very close to a picture window on the west side 
of the house, the side facing back toward H58 with pine trees nearby. Please do 
not approach this bird for photos. It is reported as being "very skiddish", and 
we have had problems with photographers driving birds from a site before 
birders wishing to see these birds can arrive. Scott

Yes. Just relocated at same location (point blank range) and then lost as I 
tried to get a photo with no card in the camera. Still trying for photo. Two 
other birders here looking as well

All-

Hank Veldman and Dave Elbrecht are reporting a Sabine's Gull at Muskegon
Wastewater as of 3:20PM on 12 September 2014. The bird is apparently a
brownish juvenile, and present on the north shore of the west lagoon. It
was seen perched and flying. It was perched on the concrete shore about 1/4
of the way from the center dike to the west edge of the lagoon. It was last
seen sitting at this location with a group of other gulls.

Good Birding,
Caleb Putnam

From: Macklin Smith <macklins AT umich.edu>
Date: Wed, 10 Sep 2014 20:35:31 -0400
Birders,

Sorry for late report, but I went birding today without my phone, and after
the deluge began I was otherwise occupied and figured there was no rush to
report.

In any case, I saw the Western Kingbird for less than a minute at 10:40
AM--this after about an hour of searching, both near the Arkona/Mohart
intersection and further afield.  Don't know where the bird came from, but
suddenly it appeared on the wire between the 3rd and 4th poles east of
Mohart.  When it took off, it headed NE toward the house where it had
previously been reported.

My experience may suggest that this bird is ranging around a bit further
than during the first couple of days it was reported, and I feel lucky to
have seen it at all.

Mich-listers:

   A single RED KNOT was found this evening (6 PM) at Dow Ponds/Whiting
Overlook Park.  It could be found foraging on the sliver island in the
north pond or on the sandy spit between the north and central ponds.

  As well, the AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS continue, with 10 individuals
present currently.

Good birding,

Birders,
 Don "The Man" Chalfant called to say he relocated the WEKI originally found on 
6 Sep. by Paul Dannels at the Mohart-Arkona Rd. intersection south of Saline, 
MI. After 6 passes in that vicinity, Don found the bird at about 1:00pm today 
at the end of a very long driveway on private property. The house and driveway 
is the first one east of Mohart-Arkona, on the north side of Arkona Rd. The 
bird was flying back and forth between the trees on the west side of the 
driveway and the power line on the east side of the driveway, near the house 
that's at the end of the driveway. Don had scope views of the bird from Arkona 
down the c. 200 yard long driveway, then sought permission from the homeowner 
to try to photograph the bird from the driveway, but could not relocate it, so 
it may have gone to one of its previous spots on Arkona, Mohart, or Jordan Rds. 

 Don says that this driveway was where Jacco "The Next Man" Gelderloos found 
the bird on The morning of 7 Sep.

Folks,
As of 8:30, the Western Kingbird is still present along Arkona Rd, just east of 
Mohart (south of Saline). It has been feeding in the road and field near the 
4th utility pole east of the intersection. 

 Good birding,

Hello,

Two Hudsonian Godwits which were found earlier today are still present at
the Muskegon Wastewater System (1:20 PM). They are in the drawn-down
aeration cell - this is one of the cells north of the large west lagoon,
the second cell from the west.

Keep on birding,

Hi Caleb,
Thank you for the most excellent note regarding the ibis identification. I
for one am always looking to increase my knowledge-base regarding these
birds. Is it ok if I paste this response in my latest blog post? I think it
would serve as a great reference for future discussions regarding these
birds.

Subject: Identification of the Pointe Mouillee ibises
From: "larus10 ." <caleb.putnam AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 07:07:56 -0400
All-



I wanted to post something about the three hatching-year (HY) *Plegadis*
ibises at Pointe Mouillee SGA, which were first found 8/21 and seen at
least up until 8/24. I eBirded them as pure Glossy Ibises (GLIB) on 8/21,
and now feel that my eBird description may have led to some confusion.
Below is the rationale I am using for my ID and I welcome opposing
views/corrections. Here is the checklist in question:



http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19535256



I accidentally implied in my description that the lack of red/pink tones in
the eye, facial skin, and legs, eliminated White-faced Ibis (WFIB), but
want to clarify that this is false and my description was poorly worded.
What I should have said was that my ID as GLIB was based first and foremost
on the presence of two bluish stripes on the facial skin of all three
birds, in the classic adult GLIB pattern (I can find no evidence that WFIB
ever shows this, and much evidence that HY GLIB often [but not always]
does), and secondarily on the lack of pink/red in the bird's eye, facial
skin, and legs. The latter field mark doesn’t eliminate the possibility of
a WFIB or hybrid, but it is necessary to establish this before calling any
hatching-year bird a GLIB. In other words, if a HY ibis shows red in the
eye or facial skin, GLIB is out, and if it lacks it, the discussion
continues, but it is not yet clinched as GLIB. The bird must then match the
classic face pattern of adult GLIB before one can call it.



As for the sticky issue of hybrid Glossy X White-faced Ibises, which are
rare but well known, including from this location: the literature on
identifying these birds as HYs is scanty, as few (no?) known-identity birds
have been tracked from the nest to adulthood. HY WFIB show at most one,
non-blue upper facial skin stripe, often pink, and no lower stripe, so pure
WFIB are eliminated.  It is probably not possible to state with 100%
certainty that hybridization can be eliminated, but the lack of any
intermediate traits supports the stance for pure GLIB. If these birds
showed very diffuse lower stripes, or lacked them completely, I’d be
inclined to identify them as *Plegadis* ibises.  Instead, the features we
have are consistent with the literature for HY GLIB, so I don't see any
need to invoke the hybrid possibility. If future studies show that pure
WFIB or WFIB X GLIB can show the classic adult GLIB face pattern, I would
revoke my ID.



Finally, I want to implore others to study these birds, and the literature,
and to make their own conclusions (in other words: don’t just eBird these
based on someone else’s opinion). I was really glad to see many careful
descriptions, a lot of ID hedging, and several eBird checklists with these
birds listed as GLIB/WFIB. But regardless of which category you use
(Glossy, White-faced, Glossy/White-faced, or Glossy X White-faced), these
are all Michigan review species. So, I encourage everyone to submit a
written description and/or photos of these birds to the MBRC – don’t assume
that others will, as that’s usually not the case! Photographs, especially
under the conditions at Mouillee, often don't cut it, and I know from
experience that voting members often rely heavily, or even solely, on
written descriptions to evaluate certain key field marks. In this case,
there appear to be good photos surfacing, but so far apparently only for
one or two of the three birds. Anyway, here’s a link to a template for the
MBRC’s rare bird report form:



http://www.michiganaudubon.org/research/recordscommittee/rare_bird_report.html



I look forward to discussion and welcome any alternate views and/or
corrections to what I've written,



Good Birding,

Caleb Putnam

Here's a link for the best shot I was able to get of the Black-headed Gull.


https://www.flickr.com/photos/39625161 AT N04/14836874669/

In other sightings, my first look at the several hundred shots I took of
the Ibis seem to show no sign of red eyes in either bird.

Birders,

Noone could relocate the Black-headed Gull, which was present as late as 8
pm last evening in Cell 3 at Pt. Mouillee.  Gull numbers were down in Cell
3, which is now void of mudflats except for part of Pelican Point in the SW
corner.  It may return later this afternoon - look for it along the NW or
South ends of Cell 3.

NE corner of Humphries Unit is active w/ Snowy Egret, Willet, Red Knot,
Black-bellied Plovers, Short-billed Dowitchers, Baird's Sandpiper, and
usual peep suspects.

No on Yellow-crowned Night Heron.

The Plegadis ibis were last seen on Eagle Island in the Vermet Unit, best
seen from Middle Causeway, but disappeared behind cattails this morning.

The Black-headed Gull at Pt. Mouillee was searched for, but not found between 
8:00 and 1:00 today (8/22). Lots of gulls, including at least 8 Bonapartes. 
They have been pumping sludge into Cell three and there is no longer any 
shorebird habitat nor dry rousting area for gulls. Other birds seen two 
Plegadis ibis, unknown species, a Snowy Egret, 5 White Pelicans, an avocet and 
two Red Knots. At least two Bald Eagles present. 


Good birding

Birders, The previously reported Black-headed Gull was present this afternoon 
between 3 & 4PM at cell 3 at Pt Mouilee. It was along the near shoreline north 
of the peninsula used by the resting pelicans.While walking back to the car at 
the Roberts Rd parking lot there were two dark ibis that I saw from the South 
Causeway. Their eyes were not obviously red (to me at least) and the facial 
skin/trim was not sharply defined, so I'm just going to call them "plegadis 
sp.". They did have a small area of white and brown barring on the underside of 
their necks which I see makes the first fall birds. Good birding, Jeff Buecking

Subject: if the Black-headed Gull is AWOL...
From: Macklin Smith <macklins AT umich.edu>
Date: Thu, 21 Aug 2014 09:04:25 -0400
All~

I was one of a few yesterday who arrived midday after the gull had flown
off, reportedly over to Lake Eire. A great way to deal with such a
disappointment, of course, is to enjoy the other great birds present, but
as for trying to relocate the target gull, the consensus--after the gull
flocks remaining in Cell 3 had been thoroughly scanned--was that it would
be wise to have a look at the lake. Several of us headed over there, me on
foot, the smarter ones on their bikes, and we located a *large* feeding
flock of cormorants and gulls which yesterday was unfortunately too far
away to scan any but the closest gulls with any confidence. But the "gull
traffic" such as it was seemed to suggest that most returning gulls were
heading to "pelican spit" in Cell 3 to the south of where the Black-headed
Gull seems to prefer to roost.  So if the bird is AWOL it might make sense
to scan that area as carefully as possible.

Those over at lake-side were variously strung out along the dike, and at
one point, being on foot and not having the whole afternoon to spend on
this quest, I was heading back clockwise well ahead of the "group."  At
this point, a little before 2:00, I picked up the BHGU in Cell 3 airspace:
aside from it just looking "different," the primaries really are very
distinctive in flight. I thought I was following it very well, but when it
landed in on the "pelican spit" I couldn't see it at all. From one spot on
the side dike, however, I was able to see it well after considerable
searching.  A couple of hundred yards further, when I was closest to the
"pelican spit," I couldn't pick it out at all for some reason. At this
point I saw a cluster of other birders on the lake-side dike with scopes
pointing at the spit, so I figured (and hoped) they were looking at the
bird rather than just scanning. I shouted to them, but our communication
was ineffectual. I decided that this probably didn't matter too much. After
all, their scopes were fixed not moving, so they were probably--as later
reports verified--all looking at it.

All's well that ends well, to quote the Bard. This little narrative is
meant mainly to suggest a few ways of looking for the gull should it not be
immediately present and under observation. It's also a cautionary tale
about the desirability of trading cell phone numbers or maybe even agreeing
on a system of hand signals out there.

Sorry for the late email but I refund the Black-headed Gull at about 2:00
this afternoon (it had disappeared for a few hours) on the mud spit with
the Pelicans in Cell 3.  The bird was still there when I left around 3. The
Yellow-crowned Night-heron was still in the brush across from Cell 3 around
1.  There were also 2 Knots, an Avocet, a Stilt Sandpiper and Baird's
Sandpiper in Cell 3.  There was an Olive-sided Flycatcher along Roberts Rd.
on my way in.  I have a very poor photo of the Black-headed Gull on my
ebird checklist and a better one of the Olive-sided Flycatcher.

All,
Along with the Black-headed Gull there is currently an adult Yellow-crowned
Night-Heron here. The heron is across the dike from cell 3 in a small line
of snaggy brush between islands of cattails. A scope would be handy, and
the view is somewhat obscured.

Other highlights include two Red Knots on the north side of Cell 3 (at the
spot the Black-headed Gull is frequenting) and one American Avocet on the
south end of cell 3.

Keep on birding,
Chace Scholten
