Subject: New London ferry this morning, big Eider numbers
Date: Sat Dec 15 2018 12:36 pm

Took 8am ferry out of New London this morning. Overcast and light wind made
for good visibility on way out but fog and rain made thing tougher on
return. No remarkable birds in CT waters but a careful estimate of 1,600
Common Eider is by far the most I have ever seen in CT. Many adult males.
In New York waters notable was a King Eider (Orient Point harbor) and a
single adult Northern Gannet. eBird list with poor record shot of King
Eider below:

From: ctbirds AT lists.ctbirding.org
 
Birders et al,

I ask all a gentle reminder that everyone sign their name and town as is required for posting on the CT Birds list serve in every post. Many times i put my name in the reply area to help with further inquiries about the post.

Since it is now the Annual 119th CBC count I would appreciate as this helps others as this is also count week.

Be safe and have fun!

Cheers,
Mardi Dickinson

Subject: Muscovy Duck in MA
Date: Thu Dec 13 2018 18:46 pm
From: ctbirds AT lists.ctbirding.org
 
Domestic Muscovy Ducks are at least somewhat regular throughout the
country. Not as common as domestic Mallards, but certainly not unusual here
in CT, MA, or the rest of the east.

Florida has an "established" population which is essentially domestic
birds that have proliferated out of control.

Real, wild, Muscovy Ducks in the US can only be found along the Rio Grande,
and infrequently at that in recent years.

Subject: Barred Owls + 1908 CBC New Haven area
Date: Thu Dec 13 2018 11:14 am
From: ctbirds AT lists.ctbirding.org
 
Hi All,

In NYC this December we have an abundance of Barred Owls in several
boros including 5 in Central Park Fri-Sat December 7-8 (plus two
Northern Saw-whet Owls and a Great Horned Owls - and there may be
additional owls we have not found yet). Barred Owl numbers seem to on
the increase in the northeast - we rarely saw them in Central Park in
the 1990s...in the last few years they have become annual winter
visitors sometimes 2-3 in Central Park. Barred Owls have also
(regularly) spent days in winter roosting in backyards in Harlem or
other areas near CP. It is unclear to me if Barred Owls numbers are
up in the northeast and we are seeing that reflected in CBC
numbers...or if they are coming south in greater numbers (but
breeding population numbers remain approx. the same). Here is a
Barred Owl 2012 CBC summary from Massachusetts:

Subject: 'tis the season for owls - hoo hoo hoo
Date: Sun 16 December 2012

I've finished two CBCs, one all day and one just the nighttime
portion, and have to report that the owls are doing very well in
Westport and Hatfield [Massachusetts]. On the two sections of the
counts I did, my fellow owlers and I found 49 owls (almost all along
Horseneck Road in Westport) and 67 owls (all in one half of
Hatfield). Thanks to them and thanks to this great program for
getting us all into the field.....even at ungodly hours.

Brian Cassie, Foxboro (Massachusetts)
============================
In Washington state (Bellingham area), Barred Owls regularly nest in
suburban parks and are quite tolerant of people - we (Deborah Allen
and I) know this because her mom lives there, and we regularly and
easily call them in, in all seasons. Dr. R. O. Bierregaard showed the
same in suburban areas in North Carolina in his research.
============================
CBC Results 1908 - New Haven/South Norwalk

Looked out at my feeders and thought I saw my usual Red-bellied Woodpecker.  Then I did a double take.   It was a Yellow-Shafted Flicker at the finch feeder which appears to be a misnomer as the woodpeckers spend more time on it than the finches do.

Regarding the message below. This was previously researched and this bird
was from the Ella Grasso nest. A clutch of 3 of which the female has not
left the general vicinity of her birth nest. The second one fledged and
left for parts unknown. Such a shame about the 3rd. Pics attached from

A juvenile male Bald Eagle and fledged from a New Haven nest was founddead
in rural West Virginia on Sept 13, 2018. The bird had been scavenginga road
killed deer carcass when it was struck and killed by a vehicle.The young
eagle was banded as a nestling with the number S/7 on May 11, 2018.The band
was recovered by a Virginia wildlife biologist who forwarded theinformation

The only nest I'm aware of is the State Street nest that is actually Hamden
and anothernest on the West River along the Ella Grasso Blvd in New Haven.
Sad lose just the same.

I had one yesterday afternoon at the William's preserve in Coventry, and another today in Longmeadow, MA at the Fannie Stebbins Preserve.  The bird in MA looked very thin and possibly unhealthy, as it allowed me to take a picture with my iphone from about 20 feet away, and it was perched only 12-15 feet off the ground.  Pic on ebird report.

Subject: Sherwood Island- Slightly off topic
Date: Wed Dec 12 2018 9:17 am
From: ctbirds AT lists.ctbirding.org
 
I haven't been birding in the state or keeping up with the list for quite
some time, so apologies if this has already been covered.

I was birding at Sherwood recently and noticed a dramatic increase in dead
and dying conifers. I remember this to be an issue in years past, but I was
taken back by the shear volume of vines covering almost every conifer. I'm
sure there are reasons beyond my knowledge in relation to budget and work
force for the park, but why have there been no work days organized by local
and state birders to save what trees are left? And if there have been, why
no follow ups?

I would assume there is enough desire in the birding community to put in
some effort and spend a day cutting vines? The way things look at the
moment, the groves don't have much fight left in them. I'd think it's
probably better to save what trees you can now, instead of letting them all
die and starting from scratch? There are still many trees which can be
saved and salvaged if something is done now, but another season of
established vines will be the end. Who knows if the funds will even be
there for new trees, and it'll end up as more mowed grass. If nothing else,
carry a pair of clippers with you and cut a few vines every visit. I keep a
pair handy when birding my local patches, the effort pays off.

Once again, my apologies if this has been covered/shouldn't be covered on
the list. It just took me back that the birding community wants habitat to
bird in, but a historical gem of a grove has been left to die. Seems like
this could be changed fairly easily going forward. Thank you for the time.

Regards,

Im new to the list, Hoping its OK to pose a question here-as well as a sighting. A beautiful large hawk just flew into the yard in Enfield attacking the small birds around the feeder and banged into the window while landing. It had the brownish red feathers of a red tail hawk, black talons and golden colored eyes.Any suggestions on how to keep the Hawks from entering the yard, do I need to get rid of my feeders?
