I believe I had a Ruff on the mudflats at cell 3 Memorial day. The bird was 
about the size of a Black-bellied Plover with a longish bill and very dark 
overall. It had molting patches of black on the upper breast and belly. 

 
Besides the Ruff I saw at least four White Pelicans in the reserve, over 40 
Whimberel and a Yellow-headed Blackbird at the junction of east and west dikes 
where the bird has been seen in the past. Despite basically cloudy conditions I 
found more than 75 Red Admirals along the dikes. Most of them were nectaring on 
the few flowering Autumn Olive trees along the dike. If it had been sunny when 
I was there I bet I would have seen five times that number Red Admirals. It is 
definitely a big Red Admiral migration year--they have moved into our area in 
very large numbers.

Greetings,

The female Lark Bunting originally found at the Whitefish Point feeders
yesterday morning returned at 8am today. Also present behind the gift shop
and around the parking lot are singles of Gray Jay, N. Mockingbird and the
continuing Eurasian Tree Sparrow.

Good birding!

Birders,

After a long search the Shrike was relocated about 200 yards past the large 
annoying rocks in the main trail. It was on the west side (coastal) up on the 
small hill overlooking the beach. This was at ~8:00pm, good odds it's there in 
the morning.

Mich-listers:

  I have received a second-hand report from Val Trabucchi, Jim Law, and Pat
Jakel of a probable LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE at Tawas Point State Park near the
tip on the bayside.  Pictures have been obtained.  The bird was seen
initially at 9:30 AM and has been seen by others.

Good birding,

Birders,

I found a male Eurasian Wigeon this morning in the NE portion of the
Humphries unit of Pte. Mouillee. (9:45 - 10:30 a.m.). It was with 4
American Wigeons and flushed with them when 2 Bald Eagles flew over,
returning to their original position. He is generally east of the "heron
island" in the northeast part of the Humphries (formerly Lead) unit.

BTW, the Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks were not there when I checked at
6:45 am. Good to see they're back.

Yesterday afternoon atPointe Mouillee SGA, Cell 3 Unit was very alive.  
Highlights were: 98 Black-bellied plovers, 52Whimbrel, 1 female Wilson’s 
Phalarope, 1 Long-billed Dowitcher, 11 Short-billedDowitcher, 5 Ruddy 
Turnstones, 2 White-rumped Sandpipers, 9 SemipalmatedPlovers, 1500 Dunlin, and 
a handful of Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers. Therewere 3 White Pelicans in 
Cell 3, and 2 in Humphries Unit.  Also there were a number of waterfowl in 
Cell3 including 2 White-winged Scoters, a male and female.  I did see the 
continuing Little Gull, but didnot see the Hudsonian Godwit(s) that have been 
recently reported.  It looks like the weather is supposed to bevery 
cooperative over the next few days if you have a chance to get out there.

there.  I left at 10 and they seemed to have no intention of leaving soon.

The black-bellied whistling ducks took off about 6:15p. Some of the neighbors 
are saying that they have been seen here for several days so it may be worth 
checking periodically.

From: David Dister <david.dister AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 20 May 2015 21:47:43 -0400
Birders,

The Hudsonian Godwit was seen again this evening slightly upstream of the
mouth of the Big Sable River at Ludington State Park. Myself, Linda & Chuck
Scribner first heard the bird calling (about 8:10 p.m.) and finally tracked
it down tucked amidst small shrubs along the north side of the river about
half-way between the M116 bridge and Lake Michigan. As we were leaving
(about 8:30 p.m.) some ducks flushed the godwit. However, since it seems to
like this area, it may be worth checking the site early tomorrow morning.

Good Luck !

Dave Dister

I even had my husband look at this oriole and he doesn't know anything
about birds! And I am new at trying to id hard birds! Anyway, I used 5
different field guides trying to determine what this bird was. He looks
pretty similar to a spring Bullock's Oriole, with the bib and black line
through eye,  but the thing is yes, the bib is smaller than normal, but the
thing that really strikes me is his tail, there is its a kind of orange tip
and variable like its moddled or something. Could this be a sign of a
hybrid? None of the books I had illustrated what the upper part of an
immature or first spring male's uppertail looks like unfortunately.

At 1 p.m. I saw a distant Hudsonian Godwit in cell 3 at Pointe Mouillee. While 
I observed it, it spent a lot of time sleeping but eventually starting feeding. 
I was surprised not to find any Whimbrel while I was at Pointe Mouillee. I did 
see 3 Black-necked Stilts at the north end of the Long Pond Unit and I had five 
White Pelicans at the south end of the Humphreys Unit. I didn't look for the 
Tricolored Heron.

Subject: Hudsonian Godwit at Ludington SP, Mason County
From: David Dister <david.dister AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 20 May 2015 12:00:54 -0400
Birders,

This morning Chris Lipps found a *Hudsonian Godwit *near the mouth of the
Big Sable River at Ludington State Park. He first saw the bird around 9:34
a.m., and both us last saw it around 9:51 a.m. when it flew off to the
southeast toward dune and interdunal wetland habitats. Despite a 20-minute
search in a large interdunal wetland complex, I found no further sign of
the bird. This is a first county record for Hudsonian Godwit, and
represents species #307 for the county.

I think the links may have gotten messed up for the oriole so I will try

  Three AMERICAN AVOCETS were found this evening at Dow Ponds/Whiting
Overlook Park off of Poseyville Road.  The birds were foraging on and near
the small island in the north pool.

Good birding,

Four BLACK-NECKED STILTS (three together n end long pond, one n end Nelson), 
TRICOLORED HERON (se Vermet), two first summer LITTLE GULLS, one PLEGADIS (sp) 
nw corner Long Pond dropping into vegetation (best bet Glossy), LONG-BILLED 
DOWITCHER ( with 40 Short-bills), 500 plus WHIMBREL, at least a dozen 
WHITE-RUMPS, WHITE-WINGED SCOTER (single in cell 4), at least four male 
YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRDS (most in new cattail growth in Humphries opposite Long 
Pond near centre dyke). Cell 3 was a phenomenal spectacle with at least three 
thousand shorebirds, and over a thousand terns and bonies. Scanning was a 
daunting task! Also an outstanding fall of later land bird migrants in southern 
Monroe County as well.

Greetings

Louie Dombroski , Gary Palmer & I have been watching a 1st Year male BULLOCK'S 
ORIOLE at Peninsula Point. It's coming in to some oranges between the drip & 
parking area, but rather infrequently. There are several Baltimores & 1 1st 
year Orchard also present. 


Earlier in the afternoon there was a male Prairie Warbler on the west side of 
the beach. 


Good luck if you try for it!

Couldn't re-find the bird again today; three days out now, so it looks like
it was a one day wonder.

I don't think any flight shots have been posted, so I figure why not post
this one:


http://euclid.nmu.edu/~jophilli/gull7.jpg


I think this shot gives a better sense of this gull's size than do the
standing photos, in which this gull's erect posture exaggerates its size.
Explicitly, note the adjacent Herring Gull's slightly more bulky size.
Also, while we got great *looks* at this gull, the *photography* conditions
were pretty rough. I made this flight shot from the break wall, with the
ambient light coming from *behind* me, well before sundown (i.e., it is
amongst the best lit photos we obtained of this bird). Primaries don't
appear much (if at all) darker than the rest of the wing. And gray scale is
waaaay out there (with a good gray scale comparison with the adjacent
Herring Gull, to compensate for any gray scale infelicities in my camera's
image sensor on this overcast day).

Hi birders,

A group of four or five of us watched this gull for a couple of hours last
night. We got good looks, but the conditions were pretty crummy for
photography (terrible light, distances too long for good photos). In spite
of the cold and windy conditions (strong north wind; cold drizzle; my car's
thermometer read 39 degrees), it was an exciting two hours! Here are a few
photos I made of this gull.

Note the two most obvious things: greenish-yellow legs and very dark mantle
(i.e., things that make you go OMFG! when you first see this bird). But
note also the P10 mirror in the first photo, the size comparisons with
Herring Gulls in each photo (not only of the entire bird, but also of the
bill), the broad trailing edge and the white-tipped primaries in the first
photo, and the broad tertial crescent in the second photo).

I have not seen this bird today, and as far as I know, it has not yet been
re-found--although many of us will be looking intently later in the day
when Marquette's gulls usually stream into their evening spots on the lake
front.

Howdy folks,

I encountered a very interesting gull last night in the lower harbor of
Marquette. It was a potential candidate for a Kelp Gull.

Photos of the bird can be viewed here-
https://www.flickr.com/photos/theowlranch/

Obviously the next step is to rule out a hybrid, particularly the notorious
"Chandeleur" Gull (KelpxHerring Gull hybrid). I've sent some photos out to
people who have actually seen a Kelp Gull (I certainly never have!), and
see what can be teased out. Hopefully the bird is seen again today, I'll
post word if it does.

Other gulls in the harbor yesterday included Great Black-backed, Glaucous,
and one of each of an adult Thayer's and Iceland Gulls.

But I thought May was for warblers!

"The flycatcher was on the two track to the west of the airplane field, on the

From: matthysell AT comcast.net
Date: Mon, 11 May 2015 13:20:06 +0000 (UTC)
I had an adult laughing gull on Silver Beach this morning.  Silver is the main 
beach in St Joseph south of the piers that currently has about 100x the area of 
Tiscornia which is north of the piers.  It was flushed once by a beachwalker 
and landed in the water with a bunch of the gulls though it was more hanging 
out with the terns.  This is a different Laughing Gull from one present last 
week very briefly at Tiscornia 

  
there's a storm front bearing down on Berrien which should suppress the beach 
walkers at least (and potentially drop out  a few more shorebirds) if a person 
wants to try to time the weather on the radar. 

  
Also present were a Willet and numerous Caspian and Forster's Terns with fewer 
Commons.

Date: Mon, 11 May 2015 08:51:45 -0400
Good morning,

My apologies, I tried to send this email last night from my phone but for some 
reason it didn't go through. 


Last night at about 9:00pm, Adam Byrne and I heard a Chuck-will's-widow in the 
Sharonville State Game Area. This is likely a returning individual that has 
been present at this location for several years. 


To hear the bird, park in a dirt parking lot along the west side of Fishville 
Road. The bird was heard from the road, about 100 yards north of the parking 
lot on the opposite side of the road. The bird calls almost constantly as soon 
as it's dark so please don't try to use tapes to lure it in. There is no way to 
leave the road, hence there is about a 0% chance of seeing the bird. 


On another note, we birded PMSGA in Monroe Co. earlier in the afternoon. We had 
the Tricolored Heron in the Vermit Unit and Marbled Godwit in the Nelson Unit. 
Other than that there were a lot of birds but nothing unusual. 


Take care.

Scott Terry

Birders,

I was not able to obtain GPS coordinates on my phone this morning for the
Kirtland's Warbler at Newburgh Lake, Wayne County, but have them now. I
have not heard of any additional reports of the bird since about 11:30, but
it might be worth checking along the hike/bike path east and especially
west of this general location. It seems likely to be there at least the
rest of today...

At 11:00 - 11:20 the bird was here (where originally reported by Suzie):

42.366172, -83.422233

At 11:25 - 11:30 (+?) the bird was here:

42.367021, -83.423409

I will be posting acceptable photos of the bird to my Flickr site later
this afternoon.

Singing and moving around for the last half hour at eastern parking area at

Birders,

After calling Brian Allen regarding the *Common Eider* (initially
identified by binoculars)*,* I returned with my spotting scope to clinch
the ID. The bird appears to be the same immature male seen at Ludington in
mid-January, but the white markings on the head are more pronounced. The
bird was first seen around 1:08 p.m. and was last seen around 2:25 p.m. It
was initially in the company of some Red-breasted Mergansers a few hundred
feet east of the south pier at Ludington Harbor, and was seen swimming,
resting, and then foraging. The mergansers later flew off and the Eider
circled the tip the south pier and landed on the windward (western) side of
the pier, in choppy waters, whereupon Mark Wloch and I departed. In case
you haven't yet seen Mark's photos (see his previous posting), the flight
shots are stunning !

Good Birding !

Dave

Subject: Ruff, White-faced Ibis, Tricolored Heron Pointe Mouillee
From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Sat, 2 May 2015 14:01:57 -0400
I joined many other birders trekking around Pointe Mouillee this morning (a 
bike is highly recommended). The Ruff (a Reeve) was still being seen in the NE 
corner of the Humphreys Unit--Lead Unit to old timers like me. That is a two 
mile hike one way at best for pedestrians. I saw one White Pelican and Golden 
Plover in cell 3. The Tricolored Heron was a bit elusive but was seen both in 
the Humphrey's Unit and the south end of the Vermet Unit. Many people saw the 
Glossy Ibis in the Nelson Unit just in from the Sigler Road entrance early this 
morning but by the time I got around to it it was gone. While looking for that 
ibis in vain I ran into a young birder and his now birding mother from Linden 
was said they saw two ibis in the Bloody Run Unit. so I biked over there. I saw 
parts of a dark ibis in dense vegetation but it looked hopeless to really 
identify as to species as I could not even see a head and it was on the 
opposite side of a wide channel. I noticed a couple deer running down a small 
peninsula on my side of the channel, flushing noisy geese as the ran. I was 
hoping the ruckus from the geese would flush the ibis on the opposite side of 
the channel. No such luck. The deer kept running toward the end of the 
peninsula and plunged into the water. They swam right to where I thought I saw 
an ibis. Just as I diagramed the play, the deer flushed geese and two ibis once 
they reached the opposite shore. The ibis in flight certainly look like 
White-faced to me. They landed further south in the Malpath? Unit on the same 
slough I was on. See photo in my flickr account at

Paul Berrigan and I had 5 Willets along Bay Creek Road by the Erie Gun Club 
this afternoon. We also checked cell 3 at Pointe Mouillee where there were 
hundreds of Dunlin and little else in the shorebird department other than 2 
Golden Plover and 4 Black-bellied Plover.

Sorry...should have posted this with the Cattle Egrets.

I found a single Black-necked Stilt at Shiwassee NWR yesterday, Apr 29th.
Unfortunately, the refuge wildlife drive is closed until June 1st.  You
could possibly see the bird from Grefe Tower by walking the Ferguson Bayou
Trail two miles from the parking lot on the west end of Curtis Rd.  (I've
seen people biking that trail as well.)  Look to the north of the tower on
the west side of the dike.  It was feeding on the muddy edge of the pond
roughly a quarter mile north of Grefe Tower.  That's where I also observed
a lone male Yellow-headed Blackbird in loose company of a Red-winged
Blackbird group.

Zak Branigan Facebook posted video of a group of American White Pelicans
that he and his staff observed yesterday, April 29th.  They could be
observed from the east end of Linwood Rd, Bay County, on the Saginaw Bay.
You can see Zak's video on the Saginaw Bay Birding Trail Facebook page.

Good Spring Birding!

Friends on Bayshore Drive texted me that the Cattle Egrets have returned to
their Saginaw Bay shoreline in Bangor Twp.  They live at 125 Bayshore Dr,
Bay City, MI.  Several birders went to that location in the past few years
and were able to view them, some even from the road.

I've observed them in the past few years and their pattern of behavior
includes feeding in the grassy shoreline then flying out to the Containment
Disposal Facility (Dredge Island) on the Saginaw Bay.  I haven't been out
there recently but I'm presuming that is where they nest.  Great Egrets,
Great Blue Herons, Black-crowned Night Herons, and gulls have utilized the
CDF as a huge colonial nesting location for decades.

Good Spring Birding!

All-

In light of yesterday's post about a Yellow-headed Blackbird at Caledonia
Sewage Lagoons in Kent Co. I want to clarify access at this site. Access
has long been dicy here, and bad behavior by anybody stands to remove
access for all of us. Please spread the word and talk to anybody on site
who is not following these instructions:

All visiting birders must park *outside the first gate* and walk in. Park
alongside M-37, as far out of the way as you can. There are 3 total gates.
Leave each of them in exactly the condition you find them in (ie. closed vs
open), as there are often farm animals inside that will get out. If you
drive past the first gate, and an employee leaves, you may find yourself
locked inside and unable to get out, or worse.

Most importantly: do not drive into this facility. Numerous birders have
done this over the years, and if an employee sees this, they will likely
remove access for all birders.

Thanks everyone, and good birding!

All,


The snazzy breeding plumaged Tricolored Heron continues today in the extreme 
southeast corner of the Vermet Unit where the middle causeway from the Mouillee 
Creek entrance meets the banana. I photographed it around noon. It is very 
blustery out there today.

   No fewer than 11 AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS were present this evening at
Dow Ponds/Whiting Overlook Park.

As well, a single SHORT-EARED OWL was hunting a large grassland area in far
western Midland County.  The grassland is at NW corner of Geneva and
McNally Roads.  The bird emerged at approximately 8:45 PM.  SEOW have
previously been found at this same location (November 2014).

Subject: Eurasian Invasion?
From: "Curt Hofer" <curthofer AT earthlink.net>
Date: Mon, 20 Apr 2015 00:16:45 -0400
Today, while birding at Fish Point WMA and the nearby area in Tuscola
County, Kathy and I found a Eurasian Collared Dove at the intersection of
Quanicassee Road and M-25.  My eBird ID notes follow.  Sadly, due to the
brisk winds, we did not ascend the observation platform during our visit so
we missed out on the opportunity to score the Eurasian daily double.

 

Found on the NW corner of Quanicassee Rd. and M-25. Observed a pigeon-sized
pale gray bird fly into a large tree and perch. Color and size gave the
initial impression was that it was a pigeon. But as I observed the perched
bird, which was facing me, I noted a long square tail. The underside of the
tail ended in a white band that extended for about three inches from the tip
where there was a distinct change from white to black/gray. The breast was a
clean pale gray in color. I did not notice any distinct facial features
other than the bird had the "startled" look that I associate with doves. The
bird flew off to the SE before I could get to the camera. As it flew I noted
again the long square tail and also noted the absence of the flight noise
that is associated with Mourning Doves. I did not observe the ring around
the back of the neck.

 

Regards,

Curt & Kathy Hofer

Listers, There was a male Eurasian Wigeon found this morning (10:45 - 11:15) in 
the pond north of the Ringle Rd observation tower at Fish Point Sate Wildlife 
Area in Tuscola county. It was in the nearest section of the pond north of the

Hello all,
The UofM Birding club and I found an apparent adult breeding plumage Little
Gull at Pointe Mouillee today. The bird was present in the central portion
of cell 3 on a mud flat. It was noted on the outside edge of a group of
bonaparte's gulls as being smaller then nearby bonapartes (squat bird with
short legs), extensive black hood, no white around eye, petite bill and
short white wingtips with dark underside.

We observed the bird for about 20 minutes around 12:15pm before having to
head in before the storm hit.

good luck if you head out. It's a windy but beautiful day.

Bird on!
