You need to attend the conservation congress meeting in your county in spring 
to stay on top of this stuff. They are hosted by the DNR and that is where this 
stuff gets proposed and voted on. If the voices of hunters and trappers are the 
only ones heard, the laws made are in their favor.

Subject: Fruiting trees in SE Mke Co.
From: "" <dmarc-noreply AT freelists.org> (Redacted sender "betsyacorn@aol.com" for DMARC)
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2014 09:49:28 -0400
The reports of Bohemian waxwings appearing well south in the state, as well as 
Peter's report of poor juniper cone crops at Devil's Lake reminds me to mention 
that the Grant Park trees that were so attractive a couple years ago to the 
Townsend Solitaire(s), Bohemian Waxwing and Evening Grosbeak, are flush with 
fruit again this year. The primary subject of the Solitaire's diet was a 
Phellodendron/Amur Cork Tree, and it appears to be in high production mode this 
year, with the fruit beginning to ripen now. Worth keeping an eye on, methinks. 
Tree is well east of the Wil-o-way entrance drive to Grant Park, (Area 7, I 
think.)

As I filled the feeders early this morning, a very tame pine siskin alit and 
began chowing. The yardbirds were reminded yesterday near dusk of the winter 
hawk feeding routines. Either a male Cooper or Sharpie scored a kill, 
terrifying the very vocal chickadees and juncos and a frozen downy woodpecker. 
The house sparrows and starlings had already retired.

Well, y'all better keep paying attention because swan hunting is common in
parts of the U.S. and there's a sportsman's movement in Wisconsin to start
one up - along with sandhill cranes.

Comments: This is the every Wed afternoon Sherman Nature Explorers walk
in Warner Park with UW student mentors led by Anke Keuser assisted by
Trish O'Kane and MSCR, Wild Warner and Madison Audubon mentors. Nelson
Institute head Paul Robbins donned a halloween outfit and joined 42 kids
in a scavenger hunt for candy hidden next to ash trees and sumacs,
pumpkin decorating and other halloween activities, and the sharing
circle at the gathering oak. The secret challenge 'giant white ghost
birds' (two White Pelicans seen for the first time on Warner Park lagoon
last Sun) were absent today, but Redtails were active and the crisp
sunny day was enjoyed by all.

As the CBC season approaches, I would like to remind all the CBC compilers
to get their dates to me as soon as possible.  Having the dates posted will
ensure that volunteers have enough time to plan accordingly with the busy
holiday season approaching, and hopefully attract new volunteers.
I am still looking for a compiler for the Portage, Fond du Lac, Monroe,
Rosendale, and Superior circles.

The CBC locations and dates can be found here.

Thank you to everyone who has already sent me their dates.

I believe that one detail that is not mentioned regarding this hunt is that it 
is limited to Tribal Members of the Ojibwa Tribe. Am I misreading this? Not 
that I am happy about this, but I think there is a much greater history and 
consideration that needs to be given before forming opinions about this 
situation.

They mate for life, and use the same area for nesting each year. They can do 
this for 20 years or more. They relate to the area all year until they migrate. 
This makes them too vulnerable to survive a hunting season. Many have actually 
known the individual birds for years, knowing their personalities, going in 
each year to see which nest they are using, how they are doing with their 
cygnets, etc. S ome are known by name, that being their collar number, such as

birds become like family members. Many of us have had them in kayaks with us as 
they were being banded. We have held them and released them, and have

How can this be a good thing? 





SWAN SEASON INFORMATION 
For the first time this fall, tribal members hunting off-reservation in the 
1837 and 1842 ceded territories can harvest tundra and trumpeter swans. 

These two species can be difficult to tell apart in the field. While either 
species can be harvested, the season is designed to place harvest emphasis on 
migrant tundra swans, which are much more plentiful than the locally nesting 
trumpeter swans. As such, the swan season will not begin until November 1st, 
after migrant tundra swans have typically arrived in the area in appreciable 
numbers. There is a daily and seasonal possession limit of 2 swans. 

All swans harvested must be registered at a tribal registration station or with 
a GLIFWC warden. Swans must be registered in a fully feathered condition, 
within 48 hours of being harvested. Upon registration, each swan harvested will 
be identified to species. The season will end December 31, or when 10 trumpeter 
swans have been harvested, whichever occurs first. Please monitor this website 
before each hunting trip to determine if the season is still open. 

THE SWAN SEASON WILL OPEN NOVEMBER 1. AFTER THAT DATE THE HARVEST OF TRUMPETER 
SWANS AND THE SEASON STATUS WILL BE POSTED HERE. 




The Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission is commonly known by its 
acronym, GLIFWC. Formed in 1984, GLIFWC represents eleven Ojibwe tribes in 
Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan who reserved hunting, fishing and gathering 
rights in the 1837, 1842, and 1854 Treaties with the United States government.

It is scary to think about going to a particular spot hoping to see a 
particular individual, only to find out it had been shot last year, by someone 
who doesn't know it by name. "It's just a bird, lighten up." I liken it to 
someone shooting someone's longtime pet dog, saying, "it's just a dog, lighten

And as much as this loss hurts us, it must be devastating to its mate for life! 


There are so few of these around. It just doesn't seem necessary to undo all of 
the work that has been done over 25 years.” 


I really don’t understand why swans are allowed to be killed by hunters.

 While golfing the Wild Rock course, we had 3 Red-headed Woodpeckers. All were 
in the same area. Very nice to see. 

 One person in the group, has been having Pileated Woodpeckers coming to his 
feeder. He lives in Monona, a place I wouldn't expect them. Although , the

Subject: Juv Red-necked Grebe Lake Waubesa
From: James Schwarz <jfschwar AT facstaff.wisc.edu>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:42:32 -0500
As Peter Fissel posted for me earlier, I saw a juvenile Red-necked Grebe on 
Lake Waubesa near the Lake Farm County Park shore. 

I first saw the bird near the railroad trestle around 1:20. It was smaller than 
the Loons but larger than the Horned and Pied-billed Grebes. 

Not having a good view from the boat launch, I headed toward the trestle to see 
what it was. When I got to the trestle I was unable to find the bird nearby. 
Then I looked back toward the long pier just north of the boat launch. There it 
was, now at an easy view from the boat launch where I originally stood. I 
headed back toward the pier. I finally got a good look at the bird as it worked 
its way back toward the trestle. I took a few pictures then headed to my car. 

You have to appreciate all the exercise one gets while birding.
When I left the park around 3:30, the bird was again diving near the railroad 
trestle.

From: Jim Edlhuber <jimedlhuber AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 15:42:49 -0500
Hi all,
I was just heading out the door this morning when I got a text message from
a friend Bruce that he had located an American White Pelican at McKinley
Beach. The bird was viewed previously by other birders at least a week ago,
if this is the same bird. If it is, it some good hiding places because
views of this bird have been few. When I arrived at the location the bird
was present. This location was on the lake side of the large rocks just
east of the beach. I notified Jym M of the bird after receiving the text
from Bruce as I knew Jym had been on the hunt for this bird for his
Milwaukee Co. list. Jym arrived a few minutes later and it was all smiles
from him! The bird did some extensive preening while we were present. After
preening it took to the water and then took off to the south. A fun birding
moment for all of us and thanks to Bruce for the early text message!

A few images of the American White Pelican from today at the link below if
you care to view them:

Jim Schwarz just called and said there is what appears to be a juvenile 
Red-necked Grebe on Lake Waubesa, off Lake Farm Park just south of 
Madison.  He said it appears to be a very young bird, with some 
streaking on the face.  We wondered if maybe the offspring of a re-nest 
attempt?

Picnic Point and the Audubon Outpost on Lake Mendota and back via
Biocore Prairie. Found hundreds of birds on the bay. They looked like
mostly Coots but some were Buffleheads and Grebes. We used a nifty
adapter to clamp cell phones on the scope and got nice pix of the
resident Sandhill Cranes.

I found a northern shrike about a quarter mile south of Hwy 60 on St. 
Helena Rd. this afternoon. It was relating to the ditchline on the east 
side of the road. This is the same spot I saw one several times last 
winter.

Subject: Harrington Beach, etc
From: Daryl Tessen <bhaunts AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:06:34 -0500
I spent two hours this morning (8 - 10:00) watching the migration at the end of 
D at Harrington Beach. During this time I tallied 52 Common, 2 Red-throated and 
1 PACIFIC Loons. The latter was just off shore on the water for a few minutes 
before it dove. I could not relocate it again, but during the observation time 
all the id points were noted as it was in close thankfully. Also seen were 2 
Black and 1 Surf Scoters, 2 Long-tailed Ducks, Greater Scaup, Buffleheads, Com. 
Goldeneyes and 2000+ (est) Red-breasted Mergansers. The latter species was 
almost nonstop migrating south. Additional sightings included 2 Horned Grebes 
and 4 Red-necked Grebes and a probable Black-legged Kittiwake (I lost it in the 
scope as it was wheeling around--darn!). 

Kohler SP was only moderately active with, of course, hundreds of Red-br. 
Mergansers but little else. Only 4 White-winged and 1 Surf Scoters and a Common 
Loon were added. 


Sheboygan continues absurdly quiet---only note was an adult Great Black-backed 
Gull. 


Horicon Marsh had an unbelievable amount of cattail seed in the air. 15 
Trumpeter Swans were seen plus some Tundra Swans. Also a variety of ducks 
although only where they were out of the wind. Shorebirds included Greater (60) 
and Lesser (2) Yellowlegs, 50 Long-billed Dowitchers, 10 Pectoral Sandpipers 
and a Dunlin. There still is good shorebird habitat on the two Auto Tour ponds 
and I, just south of 49.

The Black Earth Rufous Hummingbird, having visited our yard nectar feeder the 
past 3 days, appeared early this morning, about 7:30, fed on and off for about 
an hour and then seems to have continued on its way--a wise move in my opinion! 


Thank you to those who visited and were able to get some wonderful photos/video 
Sunday and Monday. It was a pleasure having you here.

 Stopped at the landfill on my way to work. I stayed about 40 minutes. I saw 
Kyle's 1st year Franklin's Gull, 1 1st winter Lesser Black-backed gull (third 
different one in the last 2 weeks) and 1 1st winter Thayer's. 

 The bird I enjoyed the most was an adult dark morph Red-tailed Hawk. Most 
years ,one will hang out at the landfill, in late fall and winter.

Hey folks, on my way home from Ripon tonight I made a stop  in Bradley Marsh 
in hope of hearing some short-eared owls but to no avail. But on the other hand 
heard 2 of the following among a sparse stand of oak trees: what would make a 
sound like a dry, quiet, ascending clicking? Very strange esp. for this time of 
year.  As long as I'm on an insect topic, I'm sure it's a cricket of some 
kind, but in my inner city residence I'm hearing a continuous high-pitched 
mechanical trill, not very insect-like.  Any clues to either of these 
critters?  Feedback would be exceptionally grateful.  Prediction for Tuesday: 
western vagrant watch in effect for the entire state. Paul Bruce, Oshkosh

Subject: Devils Lake SP - little hope for Solitaires

  
I made a stop at Devils Lake SP. I decided to hike up to the top and see what 
birds might be around. I hiked up the Potholes Trail, then over to north past 
the Balanced Rock Trail, and finally back down the Balanced Rock Trail. There 
are almost NO cedar fruits/cones up there. I looked and looked but didn't find 
my first one until I was almost to the Balanced Rock Trail, and that honestly 
was a tree with a single berry/cone on it. A little farther on I did find a 
tree with some more ... approx one dozen on a single branch! All of the other 
cedars that I looked over, and I did look at many, are completely bare. I did 
NOT see a single Robin or Waxwing (or Solitaire) up there. Not much of note for 
birds: Canada Geese, Mallards, a distant Pied-billed Grebe, and a few gulls on 
the lake; Chickadees, Crows, TVs, a few of the usual woodpeckers, and one flock 
of sparrows that were spooked by other hikers before I could ID them. 
White-throats maybe? That's what I remember. Hopefully so 

 me other place, like Observatory Hill, has some cedars with fruits/cones.

A BLACK-BILLED MAGPIE was found in Douglas County on October 17 (just learned 
of it today). The bird was photographed on a remote trail camera, though we 
were not permitted to share the photo here. The location (as specifically as 
we're allowed to share it) is the Town of Maple, 48N, 11W, S10, which is just 
on the north side of Hwy 13 near the intersection with Cty Hwy F north of 
Maple. This could even be the same bird that was in this vicinity last winter.

Scoped the lake from Highway D for almost two hours yesterday late morning. Was 
hoping for a Red-throated Loon, but no such luck. Did see at least 6 Common 
Loons fly by, plus a couple distant unidentified loons. Also present were 3 
Horned Grebes, an adult Great Black-backed Gull, 3 Surf Scoters, 3 Black 
Scoters, 11 fly-by White-winged Scoters, and a male Long-tailed Duck. The 
highlight was around 10:30 when a Long-eared Owl came from the south a couple 
hundred yards from shore, then turned west and flew into the woods north of D.

Subject: Friday birding along the Lake
From: Chris West <little_blue_birdie AT msn.com>
Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 09:45:22 -0500
Hi everyone, 
Sorry for the late posting. I haven't been back to my computer until now. 

Last Friday (the 24th) Rob Pendergast, Jenny Wenzel and I spent the day birding 
along the Lake Michigan shore between Milwaukee and Sheboygan. 

Overall, it was a very productive day even though birds were relatively few and 
far between. 


We started the morning at sunrise at the Texas Ave overlook in Milwaukee. It 
was quiet when we arrived, lots of Horned Grebes, a few other ducks, lots of 
Herring and Ring-billed Gulls, and we bagged a single Great Black-backed Gull. 


From there, we ran up to North Point where theme of the hundreds of Horned 
Grebes continued, as it would all day. There were a few rafts of ducks off the 
point. A couple of them were all Ruddies and the other was a mix of Black and 
Surf Scoters. At one point, all the scoters got up and moved. As they landed, 
the lone duck trailing them looked a bit out of place. A closer inspection 
revealed that it was a female Long-tailed Duck! A Common Loon lingered nearby, 
and a flyby Grebe out by the horizon proved to be a Red-necked! 


A quick stop at Concordia University brought our first Red-throated Loon of the 
day, both Kinglets, Cedar Waxwings, some Yellow-rumped Warblers, and our first 
Pine Siskins of the day. 


Port Washington was relatively quiet, but a quick scan of the breakwall 
revealed a first cycle Great Black-backed Gull and an adult Lesser Black-backed 
Gull! 

Our next stop was Harrington Beach SP. The highest numbers of birds were here. 
At the parking lot on Cty D, there was a flock of around 20 Siskins. At the 
point, there was a large raft of mixed Mergansers (we eventually got all three 
species). A closer look revealed a pair of White-winged Scoters, a small group 
of Canvasback, two Common Loons and a Red-throated Loon. 


Our second to last stop was Kohler-Andrae SP. At first glance, it appeared to 
be all Ruddy Ducks, but a closer look revealed a few hidden gems. Among the 
rafts of Ruddies, we picked out Gadwall, Pintail, and a flyby Blue-winged Teal. 
The real surprise was a smaller gull that flew by, fairly far out, that caught 
my eye due to its odd flight style. About ten minutes of watching it fly, land 
and pop up again left little doubt as to its ID. BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE!! 


Our final stop in Sheboygan was very quiet with only a few Green-winged Teal, a 
lone Canvasback, and an adult Great Black-backed Gull. 



It started out slow, and we had to work for each species, but overall, it was 
one of the better days I've ever had birding Wisconsin's east coast. 





Happy Birding! --Chris W, Richland CountyTour leader Swallowtail Birding Tours

Another birder saw a duck in the area where I thought I saw a Scoter. That 
person was not certain of the ID but thought the duck may have been injured. 

Likely I made a distant Ruddy Duck into a Scoter.
Sorry for the false report.

Subject: Spruce Grouse and more in Forest County today
From: Dan Belter <bwhawk55 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:16:05 -0500
I took a run up to Forest County this morning to look for some of the
good birds that have been reported in the national forest recently. I
wanted to find a Spruce Grouse, so I started off the day in the bog
along Pine River Road, just west of Giant Pine Road. Two other birders
from the Eau Claire area were already there when I arrived, and after
walking up and down the road, we spotted a female Spruce Grouse that
came out along the roadside to pick up grit. We had excellent views of
this bird for at least 20 minutes. I took several photos and posted
one to my flickr.com page. Goto
https://www.flickr.com/photos/bwhawk/15637069375/in/set-72157619541704392
to view it. I also saw at least two Gray Jays in this bog, as well as
a few Common Redpolls, Pine Siskins, and Purple Finches all calling
and flying over. Other highlights of the morning were seeing two
Boreal Chickadees in a bog along Divide Road, a short but nice look at
an immature Northern Goshawk along Giant Pine Road, the usual Evening
Grosbeaks in Alvin, and a dozen Trumpeter Swans with at least 500 to
700 Ring-necked Ducks (with a few Buffleheads and Hooded Mergansers
mixed in) seen at Shelp Lake. Pine Siskins and Golden-crowned Kinglets
were seen or heard at several other stops I made.

Rufous Hummingbird (unconfirmed). I received and email late morning from a
friend in Black Earth Wisconsin who was pretty sure she had Rufous
Hummingbird coming to her feeder. She sent me some great images and I
thought I better check it out. I arrived around 1:30 pm. The bird came to
the feeder within minutes after I arrived, I was hardly set up. The feeding
was short and the bird feed on the opposite side of the feeder from where I
was. I had notified Cynthia and she arrived a bit later. The bird showed
one more time briefly. We then had a good 2.5 hour lull with no bird. There
was at least one other feeder at a neighbor’s house that Cynthia had
spotted so who knows where the bird was hanging out. I did not get enough
images, very little at that, to confirm the ID of this bird as a Rufous
Hummingbird. It is most likely that species. If the bird shows in the
morning I will post Ann's email address and you can contact her. She is
open to visitors to view this bird. It has been an exciting fall for me
with vagrant hummingbirds as in the last 8 days I have viewed the 1-
Anna's, 2- Rufous and now this Selasphorus, probably another Rufus. Images
were taken on October 26, 2014 at Black Earth, Dane County Wisconsin.
A few images of the hummingbird at this link if you care to view them:

There is a scoter on Lake Waubesa between Lake Farm Park and McFarland - long 
view from Lake Farm. 

It was difficult getting a good ID. The gray cheek make it look like a Black 
Scoter but the bill looked more like a Surf Scoter or White-winged Scoter. 

When last viewed it was resting with the head curled back in its wings.

Subject: Pied-billed and Horned Grebe Lakeshore State Park MKE 10/23/14, late post, some images...

Hi all,
I birded the lakefront in Milwaukee last Thursday morning and it was pretty
slow. The Glaucous Gull was still at Bradford Beach but that was the big
event there. I think the Glaucous Gull has been present in the area since
October 8, 2014. Lakeshore State Park was also slow except for a
Pied-billed and Horned Grebe in their nonbreeding plumages. Later in the
day I received the message on the Rufous Hummingbird in Waukesha County,
and that was a higher priority, the reason I am posting these images a
little late.

A link to some images of the Pied-billed and Horned Grebe in their
nonbreeding plumages at the link below if you care to view them:

While helping Janet and Amber Eschenbauch give  a Kestrel presentation 
to a class from UWSP this morning on the Buena Vista Grassland, Maureen 
Brocken and I observed 2 Rough-legged Hawks hunting a field east of 
Townline Road north of County W.  At the  corner of Towline and W we 
also  found a flock of over 15 American Pipits spread out on and among 
the round bales near the road.  The Grassland was quiet otherwise though 
we had 4 Northern Harriers, several small flocks of Lapland Longspurs 
and 2 Prairie Chickens  in flight.  I later recieved a call from Nancy 
Stevenson with a report of 20 Pine Siskins feeding in her yard west of 
Stevens Point off highway 66.

Subject: Friday / Saturday - Horicon Marsh: Whooping Crane, Swans, Ducks, etc
From: "Wright Family" <thomas657 AT centurytel.net>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 19:28:43 -0500
I made a trip up to Horicon Marsh Friday afternoon and followed that up with
a trip this morning.
 

Friday:

Plenty of ducks  and coots in the open water along Hwy 49 and in bodies of
water on the auto tour.  I am sure there are others, but I spotted:
Northern Shovelers, Northern Pintails, Gadwalls, Wigeons, Grebes, and Coots.
Along Hwy 49, just west of the open water, I drove past and noticed some
gray scattered amongst the golden yellow of vegetation.  

 

There were about a dozen Sandhill Cranes.  Along with the Sandhills there
was one Whopping Crane.  They were about 75 yards out, but decent views were
possible.  

 

Swans were off in the distance on the south side of Hwy 49, in the first
pond on the auto tour, and the last body of water on the auto tour.  Looks
like the first pond on the auto tour were Tundra Swans whereas the other two
locations were families of Trumpeter Swans.  This was evidenced by the grays
mixed with the whites.  There were also two great egrets - one in the first
pond of the auto tour and the second in flight at various spots on the
interior of the auto tour.

 

There were a couple sparse groups of shorebirds.  On Friday, I saw mostly
Yellowlegs.  It was difficult to see what was in the first pond on the auto
tour since the sun was above it.

 

Saturday:

Along Hwy 49, there were great views of two adult and two juvenile swans.
They were 10 yards off the road and drew plenty of attention from passersby.
A northern Harrier made a couple flybys, as did a lone Great Blue Heron.
With patience, the coots were more willing to get close along Hwy 49.  There
were also more Northern Shovelers and Northern Pintails visible.

 

I spent the majority of my day at the first pond on the auto tour.  There
Tundra Swans were active, but kept their distance.  One lone Egret received
quite a bit of attention too and became comfortable with people.  The egret
was 10-20 yards off the road and actively fed on small fish.  I sually spend
a lot of time on the boardwalk, but didn't bother today because of the
number of people and prevalence of ducks.  In the pond across from the red
rock, there were many more pintails, shovelers, coots, grebes, about 10
Trumpeter Swans, and a host of yellowlegs and dowitchers. 

 

I plan to post some more photos from today, but I've made a handful
available from yesterday.  If interested check out:

Subject: Shrike at Mead Wildlife Area 22 october 2014
From: Michael Huebschen <huebschenhuebschen AT sbcglobal.net>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 10:15:48 -0700
Hello All,
 
While driving through the Dog Training Area at the Mead Wildlife Area on 22 
October 2014, I got a good enough look at a bird perched on out in a field to 
know that it was a Shrike. It did not tolerate my intrusion for long. As it 
departed, I opined to myself that it appeared too small and short-tailed to be 
a Northern Shrike. Hence, I believe that it may well have been a Loggerhead 
Shrike. 

 
Best Wishes,

For those who don't get the eBird alerts, there was a Bohemian Waxwing reported 
feeding with Cedar Waxwings on fruit trees by Mercy Hospital on the west side 
of Oshkosh yesterday (Friday) afternoon. The description (gray back and belly, 
reddish undertail coverts) leaves little doubt. 

 
If you're not signed up for the eBird alerts, you can also find them on the WSO 
website: 

 
www.wsobirds.org(http://www.wsobirds.org)   
 
Click on the Rare Bird Alerts tab on the menu on the left. You may need to 
click on the Rarities tab on the Bird Trax box. (This works better with 
browsers other than Internet Explorer, although I can usually get the Rarities 
to show up even with IE.)

Walmart parking lot in Racine, WI.  I will be parked in the last row of
parking spaces for the "Market" entrance. I have a light blue Town and
Country.  The Walmart is on Hwy 11.  There will be a stop at Starbucks once
we are on the road.  The Illinois Beach State Park is so beautiful.  There
will also be a hawk watch group there doing their annual hawk count.  I hope
you can join me :)

Subject: Rufous Hummingbird near Eagle in Waukesha Co. continues 10/24/14. some images...
From: Jim Edlhuber <jimedlhuber AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2014 20:04:46 -0500
Hi all,
With a little sun this afternoon I decided to run out to Eagle in Waukesha
County. I thought I would try for a couple more shots with some light of
the Rufous Hummingbird as I heard it is still being viewed. There was a
small crowd of birders when I arrived, the bird was there within minutes.
When I was there the Rufous was pretty consistent coming to the feeder.
Those feedings were about every 25-30 minutes. When it showed, it gave nice
views dipping into the feeder for nectar about 5 times, then off in a
flash! Nobody ever really could follow to where it was perching. Birders
came and went while I was there. Even though there have been a couple
Rufous Hummingbirds in the last 2 years in the state, still a life bird for
many that were present. All and all a beautiful day to be out with warm
temps and nice sunshine. It was nice to see a few old birders and meet some
new ones too. Thanks again to Danielle and Raef for being such nice hosts
and allowing birders in to see this beauty!

Some images from today if you care to view them of the Rufous Hummingbird:

Great photos Jim...as always! If anyone should get a shot of the tail fanned 
out, I could confirm species. Unfortunately the homeowners aren't comfortable 
with banding the bird, so I'd be guessing regarding age/sex.

Hi all,his afternoon I received a message from a friend in Eagle Wisconsin 
thataid she had a hummingbird coming to her feeder this morning that she didot 
recognize. She thought possible Rufous. I headed out there and Anneorretti was 
right behind me when I arrived. She also heard the news. Theird was there 
moments after we arrived on a feeder. She said she was justoing to take the 
feeder down last Sunday but it had got put off. Daniellend Raef the home owners 
were anxious to find out what exact species thisas, if their guess was correct. 
We took some photos as the sky turned greynd later rained pretty good. The 
Rufous continued to feed during the rain.e are assuming at this point it is a 
Rufous Hummingbird, young male athis point. I posted many images of the bird in 
hopes that we can ID it00%. If anyone can call this bird something else or can 
find the marks toonfirm its ID as a Rufous please let us know. I have seriously 
not studiedhe bird images yet myself as w 

 anting to get the post up. The home ownersanielle and Raef are willing to let 
others in to view this beautiful birdnd we are working out those details at 
this time. A big thanks to them foretting the word out on this bird and letting 
others in to view it. Theylso had a beautiful leucistic Ruby-throated 
Hummingbird visit them lastear, 2013 for a few days. 2 incredible birds coming 
to one residence! Iave included an image from that event at the bottom of these

 While out at the landfill, an engineer stopped by to talk. He asked if I would 
stop by the office and let them know that I would be birding along the road. 
Also that I make sure I'm parked off the road . The people here are very nice. 

 While gull watching, I had a second year Lesser Black-backed Gull. This gull 
had very little of it's tail left. Although I had some other intriguing gulls, 
that was the only non Herring or Ring-billed I identified. 

 Lake Waubesa can have hundreds of gulls this time of year. Getting them close 
enough and in good light is another thing.

Hey folks, haven't been getting out much except for the Harrington trip from 2 
Sundays ago, which by the way that Bittern sighting at Forest Beach was way 
cool. A big exciter for the day. But anyway things around Oshberg have been 
picking up with a good number of SISKINS passing by my side of town. Flickers, 
too, esp thru the oak trees around the house. My latest big sight was 
yesterday flying over head in the form of a 1st cycle Great Black-back gull. 
Took me by surprise but figured not out of the question, since last year around 
this time I had a Glaucous.  Other species of note are a few Ruddy Ducks off 
of Menominee Park and in Millers Bay, a flyover Purple Finch at home, a few 
lingering swallows around the water treatment place and the Pair o' Grines 
hanging around the water tower by campus, which also still use the box on top 
of the dorm as a hang out.Fabulous find with the Anna's Hummer, the pics are 
stunning. That one may be the big talk of the Fall.....but it's not 

 over yet! Who knows what may top that, if anything. Good luck to all this

Protocol: Traveling
1.5 Miles
90 Minutes
Observers: 18
All birds reported? Yes
Comments: This is the Wed morning UW Nelson Inst Nature Explorer student
mentor training walk led by Dr. Anna Pidgeon and Anke Keuser. An early
morning low 30's fog persisted in still air offering challenging
glimpses of waterfowl in the mist (Pied or Horned?) and feeding activity
in the fall foliage (Ruby-crowned?) The students are getting pretty good
at spotting and id'd a variety of species along the lakeshore loop.

      2    Canada Goose
      1    Wood Duck
      35    Mallard
      5    Blue-winged Teal
      1    Redhead
      1    Common Loon
      4    Pied-billed Grebe (they sure looked like Horned at first in
the mist)
      33    American Coot
      1    Sandhill Crane
      1    Spotted Sandpiper
      7    Ring-billed Gull

Warner Park (Dane Co.)
Protocol: Traveling
1 Miles
90 Minutes
Observers: 42
All birds reported? Yes
Comments: This is the every Wed afternoon Sherman Nature Explorers
middle school kids outing in Warner Park. The students helped mix and
plant prairie seeds, repaired a Bluebird box and enjoyed a bright crisp
fall afternoon exploring the natural areas of Warner Park with their
mentors. A birding highlight was spotting a pair of brilliantly colored
male Wood Ducks with a bunch of feeding Coots by the marsh island. One
of the kids caught a great picture taken with their cellphone through a
scope.

      2    Canada Goose
      2    Wood Duck
      8    Mallard
      2    Pied-billed Grebe

      2    Northern Cardinal
      6    Red-winged Blackbird
      3    American Goldfinch
      2    House Sparrow

The next regular Bird and Nature Walk field trip is this Sunday 1:30-3
at UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve, meet at the Eagle Heights Gardens
entrance on Lake Mendota Drive.  We will hike some of the same loop as
the Wed morning report above and should see a good variety of species.
   Families and kids welcome!

Four Snow Buntings present at Vernon Marsh about half a mile in from the

From: Jim Edlhuber <jimedlhuber AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2014 21:49:54 -0500
Hi all,
This afternoon I received a message from a friend in Eagle Wisconsin that
said she had a hummingbird coming to her feeder this morning that she did
not recognize. She thought possible Rufous. I headed out there and Anne
Morretti was right behind me when I arrived. She also heard the news. The
bird was there moments after we arrived on a feeder. She said she was just
going to take the feeder down last Sunday but it had got put off. Danielle
and Raef the home owners were anxious to find out what exact species this
was, if their guess was correct. We took some photos as the sky turned grey
and later rained pretty good. The Rufous continued to feed during the rain.
We are assuming at this point it is a Rufous Hummingbird, young male at
this point. I posted many images of the bird in hopes that we can ID it
100%. If anyone can call this bird something else or can find the marks to
confirm its ID as a Rufous please let us know. I have seriously not studied
the bird images yet myself as wanting to get the post up. The home owners
Danielle and Raef are willing to let others in to view this beautiful bird
and we are working out those details at this time. A big thanks to them for
getting the word out on this bird and letting others in to view it. They
also had a beautiful leucistic Ruby-throated Hummingbird visit them last
year, 2013 for a few days. 2 incredible birds coming to one residence! I
have included an image from that event at the bottom of these images.
Another fun and exciting day out birding!

I checked a number of spots in the Lake Country of WAUKESHA COUNTY today.
Other than coots, the number of birds was pretty low, but I was able to
find a few birds I haven't seen yet this fall. Two COMMON LOONS were on
Pewaukee Lake, five HORNED GREBES were on Beaver Lake. Ironically, the
man-made retention pond by the Aurora hospital in Oconomowoc hosted the
most diverse bunch with REDHEADS, WOOD DUCKS, RING-NECKED DUCKS, AND
CANVASBACKS present. Am. Coots and Pied-billed Grebes are on just about
every body of water right now.

Today, I saw my first of season American Tree Sparrows along the Nojoshing
Trail (WE Energies grassland). There were about ten of them. A Fox Sparrow
was hanging around a Song Sparrow, too.
At Sheridan Park earlier this morning, I heard a call I did not recognize
and found that it was being made by a fast-moving Tufted Titmouse! Other
highlights were dozens of both kinglets and a Winter Wren.

I watched the Anna's Hummingbird feed several times this morning prior to 8
AM.  The bird was banded shortly after 8 AM and returned to the feeder one
time (around 8:50) after being banded.  The bird has not been seen since
the 8:50 AM feeding.
I understand the Rufous Hummingbird in Fort Atkinson didn't return to the
feeder until the following morning after being banded, so the Anna's may
just be taking his time and feeding on insects for th time being.

Hi all,

I made a run up to Sauk Co. with Cynthia this morning with hopes to see the
very rare visiting bird to the state, the Anna’s Hummingbird. From what 
I 

heard this western bird, will be the 5th ever recorded bird in the state of
Wisconsin. As we arrived, Chris was waiting standing there not looking
happy as he said, I have been here for 1 hour and I have not seen the bird.
In only seconds the sound of the hummer was present. We had not even had
our cameras out of our bags and it was on the feeder. We had a very big
laugh! The bird was on and off all morning with some long periods in
between feedings. It perched high, it perched low, it perched out of sight.
This bird put on I think the biggest show ever of all the years I have been
birding being so photogenic. The colors on the bird were so stunning from
one moment to the next as it’s position changed perched, colors I have
never saw on a bird. All and all a very exciting day! It life bird for me!
It was nice to see some birders too that I have not ran across in a while
like Daryl, Chris and others. Thanks to Sunil for doing what it took to get
this bird for others to see.  Also, a very big thank you to the host Linda
who allowed us all to come on to her property to see this bird and all the
special goodies she provided making us feel so welcome. I hope the bird
continues for others to see.

Some images from today's exciting event at the link below if you care to
view them:

Hello all --
There has been a lot of interest in the Anna's so I thought I'd pass on
that the homeowner was very pleased with the visiting birders yesterday -
so everyone has been doing great!

The bird has returned today and I also hear that it was banded today
successfully.

Comments: This was a special Cherokee Marsh Hikes and Hayrides event

waterfowl activity remained unseasonably low, participants enjoyed
spectacular fall colors and were entertained by a nearby very large and
noisy fall flock of Red-winged Blackbirds.

Comments: "Sea" Birds Galore! This was the every 3rd Sunday Bird and

of our target 'C birds': Coot, Crow, Crane, Cormorant, Canada Goose,
Cedar Waxwing, Chickadee, and Cardinal. Folks also had some success
digiscoping with cellphones and cameras through spotting scopes. We were
delighted to have a Japanese grad student join us again.

There were three adult Whooping Cranes  with a small flock of Sandhills in a
harvested corn field at mile 47 of westbound I-90-94 yesterday morning, c.
9:30. Very close to the highway, and provided great looks.  First time I
have stumbled on them in the wild, and quite exciting.

Good morning, please keep any updates on whether the bird was seen or not

there until around 1230.  Hopefully it stays around for today, especially
