I found two Franklin's Gulls at Muskegon Wastewater System. Right now they are 
loafing in the middle aeration cell along with Ring-billed Gulls. They have 
broad white eye-arcs, large white primary tips and their back and wings are 
darker gray than the RBGs. They are also smaller than the RBGs. Will include 
photos with my eBird post.

The female Ruff is still present at Fish Point. It is in the recently burned 
marsh. Not quite half way up the dyke on the East edge of the burn there is a 
large mud flat arching out from the dyke. It was with a Wilson's Phalarope in 
the water just off that mud in the direction of the tern roost.

All, thank you for the advice. The bird is now in transport to a local animal 
hospital, who is going to get it to the local bird rehab. Everybody's on it! 
Let's hope that we can save this bird. Again, thank you everybody for your 
advice.

This afternoon Paul Berrigan and I saw the Black-necked Stilt at Fish Point, 
Tuscola County where it has been since late April. It was in an eastern section 
of the marsh, visible from the Tower as well as by walking out the southern 
dike. 


The State plans on burning the marsh when wind conditions are right and one 
would suspect that would cause the Stilt to move on.

Yesterday, a group doing the migration count found a Lark Sparrow neat
Pellston. I was able to refind this bird a few minutes ago. It was hanging
out with some Chipping and Vesper Sparrows near the east end of the red
barn that is on Sand Rd, just east of the intersection of Sand and Plains
Rd.

Good birding!

I found a male Hooded Warbler along with Paul Revard, Craig Schafer, and
Matt Hogan today, May 14th at Bay City State Park.  It popped up on a stack
of ash logs on the 'east' edge of the woodlot as you head toward the lagoon
from the nature center.  It was briefly observed but did not sing nor was
it seen after that initial look.

I also found a Snowy Egret just north of Linwood Rd feeding along the
Saginaw Bay shoreline today, May 14th.

Good birding,

Joe Soehnel

Subject: Probable Gyrfalcon Chippewa County
From: Elliot Nelson <elliotkarlnelson AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 14 May 2016 19:39:18 -0400
Around 4:45 this evening I turned off of HWY129 east onto M48 just south of
Pickford MI. I was on the phone but out of the corner of my eye north of
the road I saw araptor flying low over the field. I assumed Harrier given
it was cruising fast and low and relatively large. But something seemed not
right. I told the person I was on the phone with I had to go and pulled
over. Put the bins up and immediately know it was not a harrier. Tan/gray
back, steady semi-rapid wing beats, and wings that came to a point. The
bird quickly flew south and I pulled a u turn and sped towards it. Within a
minute  the bird was south of 48 and west of 129. I put the peddle to the
meddle and got out of the car when I was as close as I could get.  Got bin
views of the bird cruising with broad wings but that narrowed at the tips
and with really long tail.  Then started to circle and increase altitude.
Got a view with great lighting showing tan/grey back and a darker cap with
lighter face and chin on bird. Still increasing In altitude I got a scope
on it and watched bird head higher and off south west. This bird was
overall far to big and to uniform in color to be a peregrine falcon. It's
wings were too pointed and wing beats to quick and steady for Gowshawk, and
the low fast flying over the fields was not characteristic for much else.

I hesitated to post because a) this doesn't seem chaseable and b) because
this was a crazy brief encounter with a crazy rare bird quite a bit later
then should be expected. But despite that this bird was clearly a falcon
and clearly there is no other one that fits the description other then
Gyrfalcon. Just a reminder of you are in the North Huron Birding area to
keep your eyes peeled for the unexpected.

Bird on!

Was able to locate the first year little gull in Cell 3 later this evening but 
unsuccessful on the Marbled Godwit and Willet. Yellow-headed blackbirds were 
seen in the grassy islands west of Cell 3 in Humphries Unit. American White 
Pelicans were out there too, and overall a nice array of shorebirds. 


Somewhere between Sigler Rd and Cell 3 and back I lost my IPhone 6S in a black 
case. If you get out there and see it or hear about it please text/call 734 
646-9703, many thanks.

Ryan Dziedzic just called to say he and a group from Kalamazoo found a
female type Ruff at Fish Point.  It's among yellowlegs on the east side of
the impoundment.  Park at the tower, cross the ditch over the bridge, walk
east then go north about 250' from the pump shack.

Good Birding!

From: Jim Dawe <jimdawe AT hotmail.com>

Dear Mich-listers:
Devon Miller, Lyle and Edwin Bontrager and I went to Tawas Point today, 05/09, 
to chase the previously reported Western Tanager. We had several brief looks at 
the bird, grown quite skittish since its initial appearance two days ago and no 
longer feeding on the oranges at the feeders by the lighthouse parking lot 
(though still in the same general area). To our surprise, a Eurasian Tree 
Sparrow had also been discovered at these feeders just before we arrived and 
was providing great views to many birders.

Adult Harris's sparrow seen at 10:45 am today at Harbor Island (Grand
Haven).  For those not familiar with this area, from US 31 take Jackson
(main intersection just south of the bridge over the Grand River) west and
continue to 3rd St.  Turn right on 3rd and travel over the bridge.  Stay on
the main road.  After a big curve to the right, there is an intersection
with another road that goes left toward the boat launch.  The bird was seen
at this intersection.  Last seen on the ground near the yellow barricades
at this corner.

Just so everyone knows, the road to the parking lot where you can observe this 
bird at Tawas State Park has been closed. High north winds have caused waves to 
wash the road away.. You must park where the dumpsters are and walk in. This is 
a lot farther, so if you have a physical condition stopping you, it may be 
tough. WR

Dan Duso found a Western Tanager at the oriole feeders at Tawas Point State
Park this afternoon, May 7th.  It was coming in with orioles.  Others are
at the point as I type to try to re-find it.  I believe Dan said that Phil
Odum saw it as well.  He sent me an image and it appears to be basic
plumaged with just reddish color on its forehead and a bit beneath its
lower mandible.  Otherwise bright yellow with dark wings.  I'm posting an
image on saginawbaybirding.org but it's a photo of a photo of a photo.
You'll get the picture once you see it.

Great bird!

couldn't relocate it. Somebody told me that this is the same area that
hosted this species last year.

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

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

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.

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.

To our astonishment, a second Eurasian Wigeon was located within 20 yards

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,

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.

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!
