My husband and I looked, without binoculars, on Sun. and didn't see it. I went 
with binoculars today and walked on the Lakeshore path from the Memorial Union, 
past the Limnology Bldg to the Crew Boathouse and didn't see it. Unless it's in 
a different part of the lake, maybe it has gone someplace else.

 I saw the bird at 2:30
 this afternoon. It was about 100 yards west of the Limnology
 Bldg, heading east. It was near a group of Mallards, quite a
 ways out, but I could see the white. I didn't have
 binoculars. It swam closer to shore. It was preening and
 dove a couple of time.

Subject: Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrivals in Michigan
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 13 Apr 2015 13:54:03 -0400
Birders,

For various reasons, I am not planning on posting a hummingbird arrival map
to my website this spring. For one, the deluge of records the first 5 days
of May is an annual occurrence, and often sets me back at least a week in
getting these all manually entered and mapped. So, I am directing everyone
to one of the major reliable sources of my reports. Go to:
www.hummingbirds.net.

That being said, I can say that there are already TWO confirmed arrivals in
Michigan. The first was on April 12 (a fairly typical first arrival) at the
small town of Jones, Cass County. The second was today (April 13) in
Temperance, Monroe County. So, get those feeders out soon!

At this time of year (getting into the breeding season), it might be a very 
good idea to use the WBBA II (atlassing) portal on eBird, and use the "Add 
Breeding Code or Details" section (and drop down menu there) to note those 
birds that demonstrate any sort of breeding activity (for any species that 
might be breeding in that area).

Hi Charlotte -
There is a very good starter guide to eBird here:
http://help.ebird.org/customer/portal/articles/973977-ebird-quick-start-guide

The general answer is to go to 'Submit Observations', enter your county and
state, go to the map, and zoom to the appropriate area. If an existing
hotspot exists for the area you are birding, use that. If that is not
appropriate, just click on the map to create a new personal location and go
from there. Then you can just pick that personal location the next time you
bird there.

There is an interesting story of a Snowy Owl with Michigan ties that the Black

at the Detroit Metro Airport. The second time the bird was candidate for the

Subject: Snowy Owl tagged in Michigan
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 1 Feb 2015 10:04:18 -0500
Birders,

On Wednesday, January 28, an adult male Snowy Owl was fitted with a
satellite transmitter as part of Project SNOWstorm, and released in the
Waterloo SRA. It was captured at the Grand Rapids airport on the 27th by a
biologist who regularly moves hawks and owls away from Michigan airports
for their safety, and the safety of air passengers. It was tagged by the
USDA biologist who works with Barb Jensen to tag Ospreys in Michigan. You
can read more details about this bird at the Project SNOWstorm blog:

http://www.projectsnowstorm.org/posts/alma-highly-networked-owl/

As noted on the blog, you will be able to track Alma's movements (named
after Alma College, who funded this first transmitter) on the Project
SNOWstorm website probably as early as tomorrow. As of yesterday, he was
just northwest of Chelsea. Data is held back from posting to the website
for 3-7 days to protect the owl from overzealous people who might try to
get too close while it is adjusting to its new surroundings.

Rachel Williams, of Michigan Radio, attended the tagging and release of
this bird and will be doing a story on Project SNOWstorm in Michigan on her
Tuesday show this week, The Environment Report.

A second transmitter has been funded by Michigan Audubon with significant
financial support from the Kalamazoo Nature Center, and there are plans to
place it on another Snowy Owl very soon, probably in the Upper Peninsula.
Funding is still being sought for at least one more transmitter (cost is
$3000 each), and individuals can donate through Michigan Audubon (see
below). Hopefully some local chapters of Audubon will also step up, as
Laughing Whitefish Audubon in the UP has done with a generous donation.
Corporate donors are welcome too!

https://michiganaudubonorg.presencehost.net/support/donate.html

There is a form field that reads "If you would like to make a gift to a
specific sanctuary or program, please indicate in the field below." Please

Rachel Williams, of Michigan Radio, attended the tagging and release of
this bird and will be doing a story on Project SNOWstorm in Michigan on her
Tuesday show this week, The Environment Report.

A second transmitter has been funded by Michigan Audubon with significant
financial support from the Kalamazoo Nature Center, and there are plans to
place it on another Snowy Owl very soon, probably in the Upper Peninsula.
Funding is still being sought for at least one more transmitter (cost is
$3000 each), and individuals can donate through Michigan Audubon (see
below). Hopefully some local chapters of Audubon will also step up, as
Laughing Whitefish Audubon in the UP has done with a generous donation.
Corporate donors are welcome too!

https://michiganaudubonorg.presencehost.net/support/donate.html

There is a form field that reads "If you would like to make a gift to a
specific sanctuary or program, please indicate in the field below." Please
enter "Project SNOWstorm Michigan" in this line, so they can track those
gifts.

Otherwise, checks can be made out to Michigan Audubon with "Project
SNOWstorm Michigan" in the memo line and mailed to:

Birders,

Next Sunday, December 14, Will Weber and I will be covering Area 2 of the
Monroe CBC, as we've done for many years. We always get 50 species, and
sometimes 60+ species, just in our territory. We cover the shoreline of the
Whiting Plant, and have permission to enter the property, and then we go to
the Erie Marsh Preserve. We would welcome some additional observers this
year. Be aware that our minimum miles walked will be 9 (up to 11) and
maximum miles driven will be about 6. It is a lot of work, but very
rewarding. So, if you'd like to join us, please let me know. I'm sure that
the compiler, Jerry Jourdan, would welcome additional participants willing
to cover other areas requiring less walking. Contact Jerry at:
jourdaj AT gmail.com

Subject: two sightings - of relatively large numbers of birds
From: Faye Stoner <stonerf AT ewashtenaw.org>
Date: Tue, 2 Dec 2014 21:07:49 +0000
Yesterday while at the newish Riverbend Preserve, Washtenaw County (almost in 
Lenawee County, almost to Clinton) I saw a large flock of sandhill cranes, high 
overhead. The time was 1:15 p.m. It sort of seemed the birds were in two 
groups, flying near one another, but perhaps not. Since they were somewhat 
divided, it was easier to count. There were over two hundred cranes in that 
group and they were headed in a southerly direction. That was not so 
surprising, but fun to see. 


The other sighting was on Sunday morning at about 9:00 a.m. A large flock of 
gulls, flying quite low in the sky, flew over the house, near the Mast 
Road/North Territorial intersection, Washtenaw County, coming from the east, 
and heading west, with no indication of stopping in the partially harvested 
corn field across the road, or stopping anywhere close we could see. The gulls 
flew overhead in a steady stream that lasted for a couple of minutes, birds 
consistently coming, not sure of how many though. A couple hundred. Then some 
minutes later a second stream came over, but few birds this time. Not sure what 
species of gull. 


What was interesting to me was how low the gulls were flying 
and...............I wondered where they were headed?? Any thoughts from the 
birders to travel the lesser used roads of the area observing bird life. 


Thanks.

My Phyllogomphoides pacificus look like the specimen in the photo, even to
the yellowish tinge on the thoracic stripes.  Are we 100% positive on the
ID?  I think we need voucher specimens to be sure.  Talk to me later,
everyone!

Which is why the scientific name makes more sense in communication:
stability across all languages, and gives an indication of its phylogenetic
placement.

My third edition also uses Clear-faced Leaftail, mentioning in the
description that it is similar in appearance toP. suasas but can be
distinguished from it in the field by its pale costa and "mostly pale
labrum." Perhaps that's the basis for this common name.

OK, you have figured out that it is NOT luisi or danieli.  I often ponder
what would have happened what would have happened if I had not netted
Gomphus apomyius.  I could have made a good case for a range extension of
G. parvidens from a photo.

The problem here is that there are several little known Phyllogomphoides in
Pacific-slope Mexico.  Maybe there is one more - but we'll never know.

Net the damn thing.

Subject: Request for photos of Greater Prairie-Chickens
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 17:14:20 -0400
Birders,

The editors of Michigan Birds and Natural History are working on an article
on Greater Prairie-Chickens in Michigan, and were hoping to obtain photos
of the species actually taken in the state. Of course, since the species
was extirpated from Michigan in about 1981, these would only be slides or
prints. But perhaps someone on this list knows someone who photographed
Greater Prairie-Chickens in the state? Please let me know.

Thanks!

Larry, the list at the beginning of the dragonfly manual has West Mexican 
Leaftail as the common name of Phyllogomphoides nayaritensis. Elsewhere in the 
book, Clear-faced is used for that species but in error; the change was made 
last-minute, and author and editor missed that it had to be changed in several 
places. 


Recent records of several species from the northernmost Mexican states were not 
known to Mike May at the time of producing the third edition so didnt make it 
into the book. P. pacificus and P. apiculatus are two of those species. A fine 
book on the Odonata of Arizona and Sonora that will include these species is in 
press, and we are all looking forward to its publication.

I see no reference to Phyllogomphoides pacificus or to West Mexican Leaftail

Aloha, Dennis!

I do not have P. nayaritensis in my collection, so I could be wrong about the 
IDs. So, I will defer to you on this. I really wish we have some voucher 
specimens as hard evidence. Talk to me later, Dennis! 


Aloha nui!

Jerrell, from comparing the photo directly with not only photos but also 
specimens in my collection, I would say the photo matches nayaritensis 
perfectly and is not pacificus, which has a distinctly different thoracic 
pattern, ivory white instead of yellowish thoracic stripes in life, and, 
perhaps more important, the photo shows no trace of the downward-projecting 
hamule characteristic of pacificus. These characteristics are based on 
differences between the two species (and the co-occurring P. apiculatus) in 
Sonora, as there are some differences in color pattern in pacificus farther 
south. 


Im not big on tropical gomphid records being based on photos only, as they are 
indeed hard to distinguish, as Jerrell points out, but I think all the evidence 
points to the New Mexico individual being this species. There is every chance 
that individual was an isolated vagrant, in which case we will never get a 
specimen. If a specimen is forthcoming, that will be great.

 My Phyllogomphoides pacificus look like the specimen in the photo, even to the 
yellowish tinge on the thoracic stripes. Are we 100% positive on the ID? I 
think we need voucher specimens to be sure. Talk to me later, everyone!

 My third edition also uses Clear-faced Leaftail, mentioning in the description 
that it is similar in appearance to P. suasas but can be distinguished from it 
in the field by its pale costa and "mostly pale labrum." Perhaps that's the 
basis for this common name.

Birders and banders,

I have just posted an update to my blog, summarizing 4 days of banding
conducted during the last half of September at Lake St. Clair Metropark,
Macomb Co., Michigan. As always, there are photo highlights and totals
banded for each day.

Subject: Easy shorebirding at Sterling State Park
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2014 14:49:15 -0400
Birders,

I have been contracted to conduct shorebird surveys at Sterling State Park,
Monroe County, which I've been doing since April. But water levels were
only drawn down starting in July, so shorebirds have not been detected,
until my last survey (August 15) and today. A good number of shorebirds is
visible in the east side of the Hunt Club marsh, very close to the gazebo,
which is about a 200 yard walk/roll on a paved bike path from a parking
area. It is located here: 41.911659, -83.342645 (paste these coordinates
into the Google Maps search bar). A good number of shorebirds were visible
and identifiable in binoculars from this gazebo, with many others farther
out (so bring a scope if you have one). Numbers were greatest on my 7 a.m.
pass by this spot, but some were still there at 11 a.m.  I have not yet
added up my totals for the day, as I have a several mile route with 11
point counts each tallied separately. But species noted included:

Killdeer
Semipalmated Plover
Greater Yellowlegs
Lesser Yellowlegs
Solitary Sandpiper
Short-billed Dowitcher
Stilt Sandpiper
Semipalmated Sandpiper
Least Sandpiper
Baird's Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
Wilson's Phalarope (1)

All,

Andy, Natalie Ray, myself and others were just looking at the Black-headed 
Gull. Sadly, in the last 5 minutes, it has evaporated. A distant bird that 
**may** have been our target was viewed as it left the cell heading towards the 
lake.....

Birders and Banders

On August 3 we cleared our net lanes at Lake St. Clair Metropark, Macomb
County, Michigan (aka Metro Beach) for the beginning of the fall banding
season. I have updated my blog with results from 4 banding days conducted
since then, which includes a lot of locally hatched birds, only a couple
migrants, and a station (and personal) first.

From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>

Birders,

This morning I found two Northern Waterthrushes in two widely separated
areas of Sterling State Park, Monroe County, where they do not nest. One
was high up in a maple tree singing a song fragment! I have had them this
early in previous years, and in fact one was calling near the banding area
at Lake St. Clair Metropark, Macomb County, on Sunday (August 3). It has
begun!

Dear Mark et al.,

 I agree with you scan/photograph every specimen is, in my humble opinion, a 
misuses of space and time (except for types I think!!!) and no one will be able 
to identify (if a wrong previous ID had occur) for pictures) except in very 
huge discrepancies. I think you all (I`m just giving hunches as I stop most of 
my activities with Odonata after several problems) must create one website to 
gather all information in one place, with one good scan of a couple of the 
species (freshly collected) and picture of a live specimen (attached an example 
I'm planning to do with my collection) and then the list of the localities, 
based on collection. 

      Hugs,

To allow their determinations to be verified, to look for phenotypic 
aberrations, to measure (albeit in a crude way) phenotypic variation, which 
could be extent of pigmentation, length, sizes/shapes of other parts, etc., to 
look for parasites (ceratopogonids), to look for evidence of prey (some of our 
specimens have parts of prey attached to them), and probably for reasons I 
hadn't thought of. There are definitely reasons, but what is the threshold for 
making the effort worth it? Not sure I know the answer to that question! 


Thanks for this ongoing discussion and comments on our blog. It's helping us 
determine our next steps.

Since my original reply is not in the thread, I Have 77000 specimens digitized 
(card data only), This is approx 10% of the FSCA collection. I welcome any 
combined effort application for grants to digitize more (or all).

crowdsourcing in a matter of months (and again, the computing infrastucture for 
that exists already).

Subject: Oldest Ruby-throated Hummingbird lives in Michigan
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 20 Jul 2014 09:21:19 -0400
Birders,

This past Thursday (July 17) I recaptured a Ruby-throated Hummingbird at a
home near Waterloo, Jackson County, that I had banded there on June 8,
2006. She was an adult when banded, so was hatched in summer 2005 or
earlier, making her at least 9 years 1 month old (using the Bird Banding
Lab's standard method of calculating bird ages). According to the Bird
Banding Lab's longevity database (
http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/longevity/longevity_main.cfm), this is the
oldest Ruby-throat ever confirmed. She has been recaptured a half-dozen
times over the years since she was banded, including last year when she was
at least 8 years old, and always at this same home. I've calculated that
she's traveled at least 36,000 miles in her migrations during her lifetime,
or possibly as much as 49,000 miles, depending on where she spends the
winter. She has probably produced between 18 and 36 young in the past 9
years, so with an 80% mortality rate of hatch-year birds, 4-8 of those have
likely lived to be adults. The "average" life span that I see on these
birds is about 4 years.

Yesterday (Saturday) I recaptured another female Ruby-throat that was
banded as an adult in 2007, making her at least 8 years 1 month old. So far
this summer I have banded 300+ Ruby-throats mainly in southeastern
Michigan, plus have recaptured an additional 100+ returning from previous
years, which is more than average.

To: birders the 


All,

I usually don't send this kind of email, but feel I need to get the word
out.

Over the past several days, the wild flower fields around the nature center
at Lake St. Clair Metro Park have been mowed down.  Two days ago, I rode my
bike into the park, and could smell the wildflowers from the bike path.  I
could watch the milk weed, Brown Eyed Susan wild flowers and various
grasses blowing in the breeze.

This afternoon I walked around the nature center and saw the fields of
flowers I rode past two days ago are no longer standing.  I walked the
fields and found several dead snakes, frogs, birds, fledglings, etc.  The
field of milk week, which we know contained eggs for Monarch butterflies,
is gone.  I am just sick about this.  There is only one small patch left
unmowed.

I don't know if there is anything any of us can do to stop this.  I called
the Administrative Office for the Metro Parks, which is closed today, so I
was transferred over to Kensington Metro Park, but they could not help.  I
will call back tomorrow, but it may be too late.

Please, if you care about our metro park, please call the Administrative
Office and ask to speak with the Director.  He must know we need to keep
the property around our nature centers, natural.

Please forward this to others who care about our natural areas too.

Thank you.

Subject: New Ring-billed Gull nesting colony in Livonia?
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 29 Jun 2014 17:04:15 -0400
Birders,

This afternoon, when driving north on Middlebelt Road in Livonia (Wayne
Co.), I noticed a swirling mass of several hundred gulls, which turned out
to be Ring-billed Gulls. They seemed to be settling back onto the roof of a
closed warehouse/factory (blue building) just south of the railroad tracks
south of Schoolcraft Road (just south of the Meijer store), on the east
side of Middlebelt. The GPS for the site is: 42.373904, -83.332467

If I remember correctly, this may have formerly been a BASF facility?
Anyway, upon checking it out more, there were several road-killed juvenile
Ring-billed Gulls in the road nearby, and along the sides of the road were
several more that were injured or wandering around perhaps not injured,
just unaware of their surroundings as recent fledglings often are. I don't
ever remember there being this many gulls nesting in this area before, so
I'm wondering if anyone who knows this area has any more information. As
more birds fledge, it seems likely to be a significant traffic hazard, not
to mention a bad situation for the birds...

Birders,

I have compiled all the data that is currently available to me from the May
10 NAMC in Macomb County. Thanks to all who were so prompt in providing
data. I have also checked eBird reports from the county and added those
too. So far 122 species have been tallied, which is a bit below average for
the county.

I have not seen any reports from May 10 from county hotspots like Holland
Ponds and Wetzel State Park. If you birded either of these places on May
10, or birded somewhere else and have not sent me your data, please get in
touch with me ASAP.

Thanks!

Birders,

I am the compiler for the North American Migration Count in Macomb County,
and like other compilers on these lists I am looking for participants.
Virtually the entire county is up for grabs at this point. If you will be
spending the day birding in Macomb County, please keep track of species and
numbers, hours and miles. Send me an email in advance to let me know where
you'll be birding so I can avoid duplication of efforts.

Thanks.

Hummingbird enthusiasts,

It is now the end of April, and I have received 46 reports of Ruby-throated
Hummingbird, mostly from the southern Lower Peninsula, but two from the
northern Lower. I have no doubt that this number will triple in the next 5
days, as May 1-5 is THE MAIN arrival of Ruby-throats in the state. I hope
you all have your feeders ready, and keep those reports coming (males and
females are tracked separately, and I need date, town, and county please).

I have just uploaded to Flickr a sequence of photos that I took on Monday
in Monroe County this week of a pair of Pectoral Sandpipers engaged in a
dispute over personal space. They start by staring each other down, then
stretching their necks, then stretching onto the tips of their toes. Wings
are spread just before one chases the other off. The set can be viewed here:

Birders,

Once again, I will be posting Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrivals in
Michigan to my website as I receive them (or as soon as I can get to them).
As of last night (Apr 18), I had receive 4 reports, all from the
southeastern Lower Peninsula. Today, I see there are 7 more reports in my
inbox that I'll have to follow up on. So, if you're in the Lower Peninsula,
get your feeders up today (I did) if you haven't already. If you're in the
UP, even if there's still snow on the ground the last week of April this
year (seems very likely), there surely could be some hummingbirds in the UP
at that time...so your feeder will be a great help to those eager migrants,
which will be followed by many more sensible individuals...

My map and data table can be found here:

Birders,

Once again, I will be posting Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrivals in
Michigan to my website as I receive them (or as soon as I can get to them).
As of last night (Apr 18), I had receive 4 reports, all from the
southeastern Lower Peninsula. Today, I see there are 7 more reports in my
inbox that I'll have to follow up on. So, if you're in the Lower Peninsula,
get your feeders up today (I did) if you haven't already. If you're in the
UP, even if there's still snow on the ground the last week of April this
year (seems very likely), there surely could be some hummingbirds in the UP
at that time...so your feeder will be a great help to those eager migrants,
which will be followed by many more sensible individuals...

My map and data table can be found here:

About 7:39am this morning,  I and a couple others were scanning for the
Godwit or a Franklin's Gull.   We could not find either one.

Subject: Little Gull (gone?), Washtenaw, 17 Apr., 9;20am
From: Mike Sefton <mseft AT yahoo.com>

Birders,
 Sean Bachman called to report a Little Gull at Whitmore Lake, directly across 
from the post office in a large group of Bonies. He lost the bird when he went 
to get his scope from the car, but is attempting to relocate it. I believe this 
is a first county record.

Subject: Announcing the Team eBird Michigan blog
From: "larus10 ." <caleb.putnam AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 26 Mar 2014 08:04:15 -0400
All-

[usual apologies for cross posting; please forward/share]

I am very happy to announce the official Team eBird Michigan blog, now live
at this link:

http://teamebirdmichigan.wordpress.com/

Although Michigan doesn't have an eBird portal, Adam and I have received
the go-ahead from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to proceed with this blog.
We will be providing periodic content relating to how to properly use
eBird, ID conundrums, eBird filters, Team eBird Michigan membership
changes, and all things eBird in Michigan generally. We look very forward
to an increased level of outreach and engagement with all eBird users, and
we really hope to see big increases in usership, esp. in under-eBirded
counties in the UP and northern lower peninsula.

This blog has been a long time coming, and I hope you will bookmark it and
check in regularly. You can expect updates on Michigan filters and upcoming
additions to the review team over the next month. We hope you like it!

Good Birding,

Caleb Putnam
Team eBird Michigan

Subject: Fall 2013 banding summary - Metro Beach banding station, MI
From: Allen Chartier <amazilia3 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 2 Dec 2013 10:35:59 -0500
Birders and banders,

I have posted a brief summary of this fall's banding results to my blog. It
was a great season, as you will see. It was a good season for wrens and
sparrows, not so good for thrushes, vireos, flycatchers, and warblers.

Go to: http://mihummingbirdguy.blogspot.com/

A more detailed report will be completed probably late this winter and
posted to my website at: www.amazilia.net/MetroBeachBanding/

Birders,

Daniel Rios' neighbor, Bruce Loughry, has just emailed to let me know that
birders are welcome to enter his property to view the Rufous Hummingbird
visiting feeders at both homes. He is at 2865 Whippoorwill Lane, Ann Arbor.
