Subject: New feature on the PSO web site
Date: Sun Aug 18 2019 12:55 pm
From: PSO AT pabirds.org
 
Since 1992, there has been a *Birds of Note* section in *Pennsylvania Birds*.
After each issue is published, the records listed there are converted and
imported into a word processing document and a database. The database is
used in the Notable Records section of the Birds of PA pages on the PSO
website. The word processing document is distributed to the Editors of
*Pennsylvania
Birds* to aid in their seasonal summaries.

We are now making these documents available to everyone.

The data is available in spreadsheet (xls), Adobe Acrobat (pdf), Miocrosoft
Word (doc), and Word Perfect (wpd) formats.

Go to pabirds.org and click on the *Birding* menu and then *Birds of Note*
for more information.

Subject: Chat Groups for Lancaster and Lebanon Counties
Date: Sat Aug 17 2019 15:02 pm
From: fhaasbirds AT gmail.com
 
As the migration gets into full swing, just a reminder about the chat
groups available for Lebanon and Lancaster counties.

Chat groups let you post a text message to the whole group instantly.

The chat groups in these two counties use WhatsApp.

There are four groups.

Lebanon Rare Birds (for reporting rare sightings in Lebanon County)
Lebanon Birding (for chatting about general birding in the county and
common bird sightings)

Lancaster Rare Birds (for reporting rare sightings in Lancaster County)
Lancaster Birding (for chatting about general birding in the county and
common bird sightings)

These groups are great for letting other birders know about sightings in
these counties that may not be of interest to birders from other areas.

To join these groups, download the WhatsApp app onto your phone, set up an
account and then send a text message to the group administrator and ask to
join.

The administrator for the Lebanon groups is Frank Haas 717-445-9609

For the Lancaster groups, it is Zach Millen 717-723-1279

Not sure if the Swallow-tailed Kite has been seen today or not, BUT here is some additional information that is IMPORTANT to anyone going there to try and see it.
There is Spotted Lanternfly research going on in that area. I just got off the phone with Bonnie McMahon, the finder of the bird, who is actually conducting the research there. She asks that anyone visiting the area makes sure that they are not transporting the bugs back to their home areas. This involves checking your car inside and out the best you can before leaving the area, particularly the wheel wells. She also asks that you stick to the roads since they are doing research in that area that involves tarps, trial treatments, and other things that people hiking through the area might affect. She is not an avid birder and wasnt aware that the amount of increased traffic in that area might cause issues. I didnt realize this until after my initial post, so hopefully everyone visiting will do their part in keeping this invasive bug from getting out to more distant areas.

Good birding,

This evening I and five others had great views of the juvenile
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
The bird appeared at about 7:20 on the grass and sidewalk at the American
Textile Co.
The bird walked up to me and ate a cicada that was on the sidewalk

This is my #273 Allegheny Co. bird

Subject: Allegheny County Wood Thrush
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 19:24 pm
From: 0000012b4af48ab0-dmarc-request AT list.audubon.org
 
Hi,
I just had a nice surprise here at dusk. A Wood Thrush came to one of my bird baths and took a bath. That's a first for me. There has been one just down the road that I could hear singing this year. This was only the second one I've seen in my yard.
I'm glad I decided to do some editing for the spring issue of Pennsylvania Birds outside this evening. Back to it.

Subject: Swallow-tailed Kite, Lehigh Co - plus some info
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 19:07 pm
From: billetter01 AT gmail.com
 
The kite was seen to at least 5:30 today. I included some suggestions for
finding it within my eBird checklist, if interested:

https://ebird.org/pa/view/chec...

This seems to be the second record for Lehigh. The first was a STKI found
injured and delivered to a rehabber on the very odd date March 14, 2014.

A serious word of caution: this area is primarily used by mountain bikers.
Over the weekend, be VERY cautious, and stay OFF the bike trails. You can
get run over, knocked out, or worse in the blink of an eye.

Enjoy,

From: becard AT rcn.com
 
When I got home late last night, I read an Email from Bonnie McMahon stating that she was pretty sure that she had seen a Swallow-tailed Kite at the Trexler Game Preserve.  I forwarded the Email to Jason Horn in case he wanted to check it out.  He just called me and says that he has the bird in sight!  He is watching it from the Mill Creek Road parking lot at the northwest corner of the preserve.  The bird is presently flying around to the northeast of the parking lot.  Here is a link to the spot on Google Maps:

Several people were able to view the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron this
evening from around 7:00 until dark. It was easily seen on the grass along
Grant Ave south of the American Textile building (40.374093, -79.843375).
It also flew back and forth over to the Community Food Bank building. I
don't know how busy the area gets during the work day (or if the bird will
be active/visible at all) but there were no issues parking along Grant and
viewing from the sidewalk tonight. Thanks Bob for spreading the word.

Best,

Weather:
Very low visibility at start, improved to 8km by end of first hour, with a
little steady improvement until thunderstorms came near in early afternoon.
E winds up to 15mph. Watch terminated at 1:30 EST due to thunderstorms.

Raptor Observations:
The first hour had 3 Red-tails, a Broadwing and an Osprey. There were long
gaps in time between the rest of the birds, but at least 3 came rather
close.
Two American Kestrels arrived together and had a lively interaction
overhead, and then perched on a tree at the point. They took off, flew
overhead again, and then flew off to the west. Exciting to watch, but not
counted, since they did not fly south.

Non-raptor Observations:
Indigo Buntings, Ravens, Blue Jays, Tree Swallows, Chipping sparrows,
Eastern Towhees, TVs

Predictions:
Winds WSW 6-10mph, partly cloudy with a high near 80

Ellen,
I agree with Deb Grove in strongly recommending consulting the two Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlases. They are excellent comprehensive resources that any birder would find extremely helpful. You will find specific information for each county with maps showing increases and declines of their birding populations. Highly recommend! I hope you find some answers.

Subject: 2019 PSO Awards Recipients
Date: Thu Aug 15 2019 6:45 am
From: 7evanmann AT gmail.com
 
The Awards Committee of the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology would like to announce the recipients for the 2019 Conservation Award and the Earl Poole Award.  

The 2019 Conservation Award winner is Lycoming Audubon Society. Since its 1968 inception, the organization has worked diligently to preserve and enhance the natural environment in Lycoming and Clinton counties. They have done so through strong advocacy, many hands-on conservation projects, educational outreach in local schools, and promoting citizen science opportunities in their communities.

Nick Bolgiano is our 2019 Earl Poole honoree. For three decades he has been a force in Pennsylvania ornithology. Nick was a regional coordinator for the 2nd PA BBA, co-authored Birds of Central Pennsylvania, has been a major contributor to Pennsylvania Birds including writing the CBC summaries since 1998 and serving as the winter season editor since 2015-16. Add multiple BBS routes, efforts at Stone Mountain and Tussey Mountain hawk watches, and Nick is surely someone who has made a difference for PA birds.

Please join us as we honor these recipients at the PSO Annual Meeting banquet in Williamsport on September 14.

Tonight, I had a lone female GWTeal in with a flock of a 60 mallards at canonsburg lake. 5 years ago I had a female in Allegheny county wingfield pines on august 24th. It's great to see the migrating ducks already coming through!!!! if anyone is interested in viewing this duck. park in the lot below little lake theatre just as you past the causeway. then walk along the lake shore roughly 50-60 yards towards the homes. its not private property but they do have wooden posts in the residents yards for markers of the homes property. in the back end theres 2 chairs and a opening to view the back end of the lake. there is also decent mudflats for shorebirds. tonight there were 3 least sandpipers, 3 solitary sandpipers and 12 killdeer on the flats. 3 great egrets are still around and a green heron. Happy Fall Migration!!!!
take care,Matthew Juskowich

Subject: Question about central PA bird population, Cumberland County, PA
Date: Wed Aug 14 2019 7:56 am
From: dsg4 AT psu.edu
 
I would add to Laura's fine comments with a suggestion. You might be interested in the Second Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas that compares data collected during 2004-2009 to the first BBA in 1984-1988. Some of the species you mention have changed drastically during that time. The species accounts are well-written and there are really good figures and maps. 
Perhaps you could find one at a library if you don't want to purchase your own.

Hi Ellen,

Thanks for contacting Juniata Valley Audubon Society!

Sadly, habitat loss and the effects of West Nile Virus (WNV) have decimated many of our birds. Ruffed grouse is affected by both. All woodpeckers and even red-headed woodpeckers are actually on the rebound in various areas because of so many dead ash trees.

Pheasants are non-native and their numbers have been declining due to loss of fence row habitat, early hay mowing, less PGC stocking, etc. They are beautiful birds, but Id rather see the PGC spend money on native bird protection. Just my opinion. Similar reasons exist for the decline of our native beautiful bobwhites. The PGC is doing a study on bobwhites, but feels that there are no viable wild populations left in Pa. Very sad.

As far as information on Cumberland Co. birds, the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology (PSO) and eBird might be your best sources.

Im copying this to the PSO County Compiler, Vern Gauthier, who might be the best one to answer your question about rare or extant birds in Cumberland Co. I hope Vern will be able to help.

Do you have an eBird account? eBird is free and easy to use - you can find a lot of information about Cumberland Co. birds on eBird: eBird.org

Hope this helps!

Spent some time this weekend hiking through relatively old growth
woodland (mainly deciduous, with a stream) in northwestern Cumberland
County, PA and have done so many times over the last few decades. Have
not seen or heard any ruffed grouse in this woodland for decades. As a
kid, we used to hear them or see them every year. Also used to see red
headed woodpeckers. And used to see in the area, pheasants and bobwhite
in nearby fields. They are gone or must be extremely scarce compared to
decades ago.

The only "new" bird in this woods since the trees have become much older
is the sound and large rectangular holes of at least one pileated
woodpecker that has taken up residence and he/she? was loudly drumming,
(red bellied woodpeckers started showing up a number of years ago but
they are also in the suburbs).

Also used to see the occasional scarlet tanager, but they were hard to
spot even a few decades ago.

Does anyone have any information on which birds, particularly woodland
birds, are no longer in Cumberland County or have become extremely rare
since the mid to later 1900s? Or does anyone know where that information
can be found?

Thanks

Dear Birders,
Red-headed Woodpecker is an uncommon to rare resident in Mercer County. This year has been different.
Over the past two weeks a pair have been visiting my suet feeder- an adult and and immature. Also, a pair have been nesting in the park in Grove City. I first found them last Spring.
A little south of me in Lawrence County I found a pair near Fairground Road in a stand of dead trees.
Hopefully, these numbers will continue.

Bucks County Birders invites you to our August 27th meeting. Holly Merker will present "Hawkwatching: The Delaware Valley's Greatest Airshow." This presentation will cover the ecology of hawk migration, where to go hawkwatching, when to visit migration sites, as well as many tips on how to ID hawks in flight. 

Holly Merker's passion for hawks in flight was ignited when she made visits to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary as a child. Holly has been an avid hawkwatcher for over 20 years, and is a volunteer hawk counter for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton, PA, and the past education coordinator, a compiler, and a counter for the Rose Tree Park Hawkwatch in Media, PA. When Holly is not hawkwatching, she can be found working as an instructor for National Audubon's Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine, directing a teen birding camp in Delaware for the American Birding Association, or teaching stream ecology to middle school students at a local non-profit.
Bucks County Birders meets on Tuesday August 27th at 7:30pm at the Peace Valley Nature Center, 170 N Chapman Rd, Doylestown, PA. Enter through the "deer gate" on the right side of the building. Meetings are free; all welcome.Directions: www.peacevalleynaturecenter.org 40.33067, -75.14968
