Subject: No Barrow's this afternoon in Sheboygan North Point
From: Jim and Julie Hess <jrhbird AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2017 18:19:07 -0500
Greetings all,
I was down at the lakefront this afternoon and I couldn't locate the Barrow's 
Goldeneye. Barry Baumann said it wasn't seen since about 11:00 a.m. I will post 
if I find it again. Barry, Steve Kohls, and I observed 3 Long-tailed ducks 
cavorting in the surf. At least 2 of them were males in winter plumage and the 
3d appeared to be a female. I biked down to the end of Pennsylvania Avenue near 
the Yacht club and found Eurasian Collared Doves as reported by Nancy Back. 
They were on the power pole next to the entrance to the Yacht club parking lot. 

Great birding all,
Jim Hess

Subject: European Goldfinch - Kenosha
From: Bob Matyas <bobmatyas AT mindspring.com>
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2017 18:18:22 -0500 (GMT-05:00)
       Hello Everyone,
 At the outside south back of The Birdnest in Kenosha ( just east of I-94 on 
the south side of Hy 50 ) there are still European Goldfinches ( they were also 
there last year in Spring ) joining the nice selection of feeder birds hanging 
out there. Are they yet countable for Wisconsin? 

 The Tundra Swans / Snow Geese located on the pond east of I-94 between mile 
marker 338 and 339 have moved on. 

       Good Birding,
       Bob and Lu Ann Matyas
       Franklin, WI.

First large flocks of swans were observed Saturday evening moving east to west 
across Green Bay between Pensaukee and Little Suamico in Oconto county. Bay is 
ice coated again, but that should change with wind shift. Three Flocks of 75-80 
birds each.

Subject: Another Harlequin Duck in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County
From: "Tom Wood" <tcwood729 AT wi.rr.com>
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2017 16:29:57 -0500
I assume the female Harlequin Duck I saw was different than the one seen by
Jym Mooney. I saw one just north of Bender Park in the exact spot it was at
back on January 3. This was at 10:20 AM, and Jym saw one much farther north,
at Lake Park around 11:00 AM. Perhaps the north of Bender Park bird was
there all winter? This is the first time I've been there since then.
Its behavior was unusual. She and the female Bufflehead she was hanging out
with weren't diving, they were picking at the surface of the water. First
time I've seen a Harlequin do that.
Otherwise, I found the lakefront from Bender Park to South Shore Yacht Club
to be quite dead. Goldeneye and Red-breasted Mergansers were easy to find,
but not much else. Not a single scaup. Weird.

I found a female Harlequin Duck this morning on Lake Michigan just offshore 
north of Bradford Beach in Milwaukee. It was in with a raft of 100 Greater 
Scaups (proving the truth of the importance to look at every bird!). It was 
last seen drifting north towards the water treatment plant, and may turn up 
further north along the lake later.

 Nolan Pope and I got up to Buena Vista around 6am. We hung out on Lake Road 
hoping for S-e Owls, but no raptors showed up. We were on Griffith Road,at 7, 
and saw 4 Prairie Chickens. They were to the north ,just east of the house. 
Scope needed. 

 Then going south ,on Townline Road, we saw 11 Prairie Chickens. They were 
about a mile south of Cty W, on the west side ,just north of the irrigation 
machinery. 

 While there, Nolan heard a Western Meadowlark. We ended up seeing and hearing 
2. 

 On the way home we saw 2 Whooping Cranes, in Adams County.
 After we crossed the Wisconsin River, I saw a Peregrine circling above a Bald 
Eagle. 

 We took a quik side trip ,for the Mute Swans, on Cty V, at the grade. Back 
home by 11am. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane co.

Subject: Red-throated Loon numbers increasing in Port Washington
From: "Tom Wood" <tcwood729 AT wi.rr.com>
Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2017 17:05:37 -0500
I returned to Coal Dock Park in Port Washington this afternoon, and although
numbers were down for some species from yesterday, I noticed that
Red-throated Loon numbers have gone up. Though diving frequently, the four
by the harbor entrance were still present, and then while standing on the
wooden viewing deck with the information about the ship "Northerner", I
spotted 7 more in a tight flock beyond the breakwall just south of the
harbor entrance. I scanned back to see if I could still see 4 in the
original location and saw only 3, so I'm not sure if 1 joined the flock of
7, or if the 4 were still at the harbor entrance. Later one entered a bit
farther into the harbor. Anyway, total was 10 or 11.
At this time, it is still best to have a scope and walk out to the east end
of the park. It does get cold out there, so dress appropriately.

 I also stopped there ,Thursday morning. I walked in from Lake Kegonsa Road, 
along the fence row. Although you need a scope and the oak trees block some 
of the viewing, it's really quite a view, when the sun is at your back. I 
had to guess at amounts, but I would say between 150-200 Green-winged Teal. 
I was searching for my FOY Blue-winged, with no luck. Lots of Ring-necked 
Ducks, wigeon, Gadwall and Pintails. 1000 Mallards and all 5 geese.

 I went down to the Albany WA and Sugar River bike trail, at the end of 
Conservation Road. I spent most of my time just east ,near the home with the 
feeders. There were Purple Finches at the feeder, which was a new year bird, 
then later Red-breasted Nuthatches, also FOY. Had Carolina Wren, Cardinal and 
Titmouse all calling . The wren was calling from south of the trail, and I 
never got a good look. 

 I walked west to bridge 12 and wasn't seeing anything. I pished and had a 
number of birds come in, including 4 more Purple Finch. 

 Low wind and sunshine made for a nice morning to be out. Steve Thiessen

All,
I am looking for someone who could lead a Field trip for the Desoto Bird
City Program. Desoto is south of La Crosse on the Mississippi River.  The
program coordinator had a guide for this event but unfortunately they are
now unable to lead this trip. I have all our local field trip leaders
committed to the La Crosse Intentional Bird Day Celebration on the day that
is required.
The date is May 6th at 10 am.
If you can let me know if your interested I can get you connected with the
coordinator.
Thanks,

Certainly not a rare sighting, but always a positive one: the first Robin 
red-breast showed up in our big old dead tree today on Rainbow Pond. 


Best Birding!

 Sunday evening ,my brother Doug, found 4 Short-eared Owls. This was in the 
square of Cty D, W and Apache Road. 

 He also saw 2 Prairie Chickens, but I'm not sure what time that was.

Subject: Re: Cinnamon Teal appears to be a hybrid / Sheboygan County
From: "Tom Wood" <tcwood729 AT wi.rr.com>
Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2017 18:29:36 -0500

I arrived at the KW pond at approximately 11:50 A.M. and enjoyed the variety of 
birds that were there, but found no Cinnamon or Blue-winged Teal. Dan Belter 
arrived, and he wasn't seeing them either. We went over to Risseeuw Road to 
check the limited open water, and Dan quickly spotted what we thought was the 
Cinnamon Teal. Just as he got me on it, both teal flew to the very small patch 
of open water near the northwest corner of CTH KW and Risseeuw Road. At this 
location, they were less than 100 yards from the road, but they were frequently 
hidden by the Ring-billed Gulls and Northern Shovelers. 

Nevertheless, many excellent views with excellent lighting were available. When 
I first saw it, I thought to myself, this doesn't look like any Cinnamon Teal I 
have ever seen. The sides were rufous, but not the deep red rufous I expected. 
There were many black speckles on the side which are not present on Cinnamon 
Teal. There was also a patch of white between the forehead and eye which 
suggested the start of a white crescent that would be found on a Blue-winged 
Teal. Although more subtle, the bill was less spatulate and shorter than I have 
seen on Cinnamon Teal. 

Dan had a smartphone and found a photo of a Blue-winged Teal X Cinnamon Teal 
hybrid which closely resembled our bird. 

Obviously, we had viewing conditions that have not been available to other 
birders, and had this bird not come so close, I would have also called it a 
Cinnamon Teal.

From: Jim and Julie Hess <jrhbird AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 17 Mar 2017 11:30:56 -0500
Greetings all,
I took a ride down to the lakefront this morning to see if the Barrow's was 
still present. I found him very close to the parking area but the group soon 
flew toward the south. I relocated him a short distance from the parking lot 
among a group of Common Goldeneyes. The Harlequin female ducks were also 
present as well as the female Long-tailed that has been hanging around. Wind 
and waves make it an unpleasant day compared to yesterday's sunshine. Thanks 
again to Dan Belter for finding and reporting the Barrow's. 

Great birding,

Subject: Red-throated Loons in Port Washington, Ozaukee County
From: "Tom Wood" <tcwood729 AT wi.rr.com>
Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2017 17:23:19 -0500
After reading the eBird reports from the WSO field trip, I decided to go to
Port Washington to look for the Red-throated Loon and Surf Scoters that were
seen there. I had no luck with the scoters, but there were 4 Red-throated
Loons diving and swimming out near the harbor entrance as seen from Coal
Dock Park. A Peregrine Falcon was flying near the power plant and at least 7
Ruddy Ducks, 23 Redheads, and a Canvasback were in the impounded water at
the east end of the park. There was probably a lot more to see, but the wind
was brutal so I headed for home.

Subject: Sheboygan to Virmond Park
From: "Steve Thiessen" <stevethiessen AT charter.net>
Date: Sat, 18 Mar 2017 18:26:04 -0500
 Nolan Pope and I headed up to see the cool ducks ,at Sheboygan. The Barrow's 
Goldeneye, Harlequin Ducks and the one Long-tailed duck were all right near the 
parking area. Really great views. Kind of nice to check out the Lesser Scaup 
and Greater Scaups differences in the bills, at such a close view. 

 There was an adult (or near adult) and a 1st winter Great Black-backed Gulls 
on the north breakwater. Lots of ducks in the harbor and river, but the only 
different ones were Redheads. 

 As we headed south we stopped twice before Kolher-Andre. not much. 
Kolher-Andre SP was really slow. I didn't even see a goldeneye, just 2 
Mallards, a few Red-breasted Mergansers and 3 Greater Scaup flew by. 

 At the end of Cty D (Harrington Beach) distant ducks, of which we couldn't 
find any scoters. The closest bird was a Red-throated Loon, that Nolan spotted. 

 We walked in to where Calvin was still counting birds. Calvin spotted another 
R-t Loon flying by. We had a couple wigeon and a couple pintails go by. Along 
the horizon, I saw 3 different male(?) Long-tailed ducks. 

 At the Coal Dock Park, in Port Washington, we could see 7 Red-throated Loons 
,just outside the breakwalls. Thanks ,Tom Wood, for the report of these. 

 We also got to see the pair of Peregrines, do pigeon control, out over the 
lake. 

 At our last stop ,Virmond Park, we still couldn't find a scoter. We did see 2 
distant adult Great Black-backed Gulls and a Glaucous Gull.

Subject: Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Festival, 18-20 May 2017
From: Ryan Brady <ryanbrady10 AT hotmail.com>
Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2017 21:39:19 +0000
Calling all nature lovers! Registration is now open for the 2017 Chequamegon 
Bay Birding & Nature Festival to be held in Ashland, May 18-20. 
http://www.birdandnaturefest.com/ 


The birds are great (Tropical Kingbird last year!), the destinations 
spectacular, and the people knowledgeable and friendly. With 110+ trips and 
programs on all things nature, there's always something for everyone, from 
wildflowers, frogs, and fish to spiders, mushrooms, land snails, and more! 


This year's theme is climate change, including a keynote presentation by 
Madison Audubon's Dr. Matthew Reetz on projected impacts to Wisconsin birds. 


We'll again gather for a fun and delicious banquet dinner, and a portion of 
your registration fee will again go to the Bayfield Regional Conservancy and 
Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. 


But act now, because after just a few hours of open registration quite a few 
trips have already filled, and most will eventually! 


Festival details and registration can be found at 
http://www.birdandnaturefest.com/ 


Thank you!

In my opinion, you should submit it as you saw it, Art. If you saw any of
the hybrid characteristics, then submit it as such. If it looked like a pure
Cinnamon Teal during your observation, then submit it that way. 
There is no consensus on eBird. Most have reported it as a Cinnamon Teal,
which is expected, because the speckles on the sides and white marking on
the face are not visible at long distance. None of the photos I have seen
show the hybrid markings well, so until somebody is able to get a clear
close-up of this bird, photographic evidence of the hybrid characteristics
may be elusive.
The good thing about eBird is that you can go back in and change your list
later, as many people had to do with the supposed Franklin's Gull that was
ruled to be a Laughing Gull.
The WSO records committee will decide what goes into the state records.
Since it usually takes about a year to get a decision, there will be no
quick official answer.

Date: Sat, 18 Mar 2017 17:27:24 -0500
Hello, Me & Cone made a swing thru Sheboygan Co. today. Highlights were as
follows.
Southwest of Oostburg on Risseuw Rd. we whiffed on the Cinn. Teal hybrid
from 10 a.m. to Noon.
We saw a Trump Swan, many Tundra's, a GWF Goose, 8 Pintails, some beautiful
Am. Wigeons, Redheads, Scaups,& a Green Winged Teal at that location. It is
best viewed from the north/south running Co. Rd. KW although it is certain
death to park on that road for any length of time.
We saw one Snow Bunting, a few Horned Larks, and a good sized flock of
Lapland Longspurs at the intersection of Risseuw Rd. & Rauwerdink Rds.
(which is just west of the Teal spot).
At North Point Park on the north side of downtown Sheboygan we got great
looks at the BARROW'S GOLDENEYE, as well as the 2 female Harlequin Ducks.
We had 2 White Winged Scoters swim thru while we were there also. All
within 8X bin range, so a very good stop today & with a west wind to boot.

It's a hybrid bird.  

Blue-winged x Cinnamon Teal (hybrid) is the taxa to use when reporting the bird 
via eBird.

Hi all,
With a day of falling snow yesterday, it was be a great day to check out a
few owls. Bruce and I checked out a few spots with a little luck. The
Barred Owl was hunkered down when found, it never moved. The Long-eared
Owls sat tight as well. With the snow falling on and off during the day, it
made for a winter wonderland atmosphere out in the woods.

A few of the Barred and Long-eared Owls images in the falling snow at this

I just goy back from a trip over to Sheboygan and the KW pond. I enjoyed nice 
views of the male Barrow's Goldeneye while I was there. It was between the 
parking lot and the first pier, actively feeding. Also present were the 
Harlequin Ducks, Long-tailed Duck, 2 Surf Scoters and the standard diving 
ducks. In the harbor were more diving ducks including the White-winged Scoter 
and a Great Black-backed Gull. 

The KW pond had a nice variety of ducks including Wood Ducks, Pintails, Am 
Wigeon, etc plus 2 White-fronted Geese accompanying the Canadas. 


For the day I tallied 22 duck species. A fun several hours with various 
birders!

Subject: Barrow's Goldeneye - Sheboygan Co. 3/15/17, some images...
From: Jim Edlhuber <jimedlhuber AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2017 17:07:47 -0500
Hi all,
I made the run up to North Point Park in Sheboygan this morning with hopes
to see the male Barrow’s Goldeneye. I was not disappointed.  The Barrow’s
Goldeneye rode the large waves coming in like the other ducks present. It
dove often for food and sometimes it was hard to relocate with the large
waves. This is not a life bird as I photographed one at the exact location
back on January 7, 2011. As I have searched high and low through rafts of
Common Goldeneye on the Milwaukee lakefront year after year, to see one
again is a special treat. From Sheboygan I stopped at Port Washington for a
couple of minutes and got a distant shot of 4- Red-throated Loons just east
of the harbor entrance feeding on occasion. Thanks to Dan B. for finding
this uncommon bird for the area and getting the word out for others to see
it.

Some images of the Barrow's Goldeneye and Red-throated Loons from a
distance at this link:

Hi
Goose Pond is mostly froze over but should open shortly.  On Tuesday there
was a small amount of open water.  A count on Tuesday found 220 greater
white-fronted geese, 47 Canada geese, 341 tundra swans, 38 mallards, 96
canvasbacks, 2 buffleheads, and 2 pairs of sandhill cranes.  Kestrels are
common around Goose Pond and we saw a male harrier yesterday.

From: Gmail <bhaunts AT gmail.com>

It was really cold at Goose Pond early this morning with a strong northwest 
wind blowing. Ditto at Schoeneberg Marsh. This was the WSO field trip with 
details to follow later. Highlights included hundreds of Gr. White-fronted 
Geese, many Tundra Swans and various ducks at the two stops. At the first stop 
an Am. Pipit flew over calling. Checks at other ponds yielded more ducks and 
geese, including 3 Snows. 

The causeway had 2 Mute Swans plus a nice duck variety. Ronan Creek walk was 
most enjoyable as there was no wind here. Birds were few however. 16 duck 
species for the day. 


On the way home there was a Fox Sparrow at a feeder near Mud Lake. Had the swan 
slam with 3 Trumpeter Swans along 49 at Horicon Marsh. There is limited open 
water along there.

Ty, your mystery bird appears to be an American Goldfinch, still in winter 
plumage.  By looking closely you can observe the somewhat thick, 
conical-shaped bill that is typical of finch-type birds.

March 16.While photographing and observing the waterfowl at Madison Audubon 
Goose Pond Sanctuary in Arlington. I heard two Sandhill Cranes on the opposite 
side of the pond. I could see that they were mating which was a first behavior 
for me to witness. Shortly afterwards, they flew to the side of Goose Pond 
where I was photographing. The light was perfect, the blue and grey textured 
ice made a perfect background for the cranes. The cranes foraged a bit. Then 
they took off taking a long run on the ice. A simple behavior, but oh so 
beautiful.

Hi all,
A brief birding stop this morning at Lakeshore State Park provided nice
views of a White-winged Scoter. The female duck was hanging out with
Greater Scaup and feeding on mussels in the lagoon. It was a nice way to
start the cold day out birding.

Some images of the White-winged Scoter from this morning at this link if
you care to view them:

Pat Ready called this morning to let me know that the White-winged Scoter was 
still visible off Olbrich Park on Lake Monona, so I stopped on my way to the 
store. Looking from the beach house parking area off Atwood Ave./Walter St., 
the scoter was a couple hundred yards out, looking towards the capitol. Shimmer 
and glare might be an issue in the afternoon from there. There were Common 
Goldeneye, Redheads and scaup spp. out in the vicinity, but when I saw it, it 
was associating with a female Bufflehead.

Hi all,
I came across some Killdeer today drinking water out of a half frozen
puddle in Milwaukee County. Temperatures remained below freezing all day
but the Killdeer still found some open water. Watching them in a short
grass field they also appeared to find food today, a good thing. A cold and
windy day today with some sun, the high for the day was 26 degrees.

I had a short while for a walk through Seminary Woods around 3 PM today. Found 
a gray-phase Screech Owl sunning in a west facing hole. Also saw a Brown 
Creeper, American Tree sparrow, W B Nuthatches, Downys, & 

Chickadees.  Cathy Dermody, SE MKE

Nice flock of Wood ducks at Little Suamico and several Song Sparrows at the 
feeders in Oconto County. Three Turkey Vultures playing in the strong winds at 
Brown, Oconto county line.

Subject: Northern Pintail, Franklin dump area, Milwaukee Co.

Hello, at about 1:30 this aft. i drove past a striking Drake Pintail on a
DOT pond on Hwy 45 near the enormous garbage dump mounds outside Franklin,
WI.  The bird was on the east side of Hwy 45, surprisingly close to the
road.
Equally as spectacular (tho not in an aesthetic way) is the amount of trash
that has escaped in the wind from the west dump. Whew! Gotta see it to
believe it.
