I thought I heard a phoebe when I left for work this morning. I'm so
used to it being constant winter that I hadn't thought they might be
returning. I'll have to listen closer tomorrow.

They nested on the carport beams for 2 years prior to last year. Last
year they were here through the summer but must have built their nest
somewhere else.

Today I visited the Heritage Park River Access in Marysville in Perry County around 3:30 in the afternoon.

Lots of activity floating in the river and flying north. There were tons of gulls and some ducks and within about 1 minute I had located the continuing Black-headed Gull on a small rock by itself about midway across the river basically directly out from the river access point. Full breeding plumage with very dark red bill and legs. Solid dark cap and large size compared to passing Bonaparte's Gulls.

I estimated 300+ Ring-billed Gulls and 70+ Bonaparte's Gulls in the 20 minutes or so that I visited. I also had several Common Mergansers, about 10 Horned Grebes, and one Red-necked Grebe. The Red-necked was nearly across the river and upstream, frequently diving. Red-necked bill size and dark at base of bill fading to cheek. Also posture and size was very different from neighboring Horned Grebe.

Happy birding!

I watched, at Lemon Street, at the river, at Wrightsville, a pair of Horned Grebes, some Red-breasted Mergansers, Buffleheads, lots of Ring-billed Gulls, a few Herring Gulls, and Bonapartes Gulls.  A loose flock of birds were around the trees next to the river: Downy Woodpecker, a pair of Carolina Wrens, American Robins, Eastern Bluebirds, American Goldfinches, and a couple of Pine Siskins.

I had what appeared to be a sick Siskin this morning.  It was feeding but was all fluffed out and let me walk right up on it.  It flew and later reappeared perched on our weather vane, but again, all fluffed out.   Hopefully, it will do fine.

Knowing that raptors usually lift off around 11 at this time of the year (at least they do here where I live) I went outside to scan the sky this morning around that time.  And in spite of the overcast weather there were several raptors in view - 4 red-tailed hawks, a Cooper's, a juvenile sharp-shinned, and both turkey and black vultures. Then this bird, which appeared to be a subadult, appeared traveling SW to NE, but not high up, and suddenly it began dipping down after prey, looking as if it was on the end of a yo-yo. They have a very distinct feeding behavior. Eventually it disappeared over the ridge, going toward the Delaware River and New Jersey. There were also two ravens in the valley this morning, and after they flew around and around for about 10 minutes they went SW, possibly toward where they've been known to nest in upper Bucks County.

At Wyatteville Pond, 6 long-tailed duck and 10 pintail. I thought the combination of 51 tundra swan & 8 common loon was somewhat odd, but even more unusual was my first Hirundinid of the year being a purple martin.

At home, a woodcock reclining in a small aspen grove stood out against the carpet of fresh snow. Was it incubating eggs? At the feeders, 13 siskin & 2 fox sparrow.

Monday, six of us birded the Welsh Mountain Preserve. We were conducting a bird survey for the Lancaster County Conservancy, and excitement was in the air. We started at around 8am, and one of the first birds most of us got were three Wild Turkeys trying to cross the road just over the hill from where we were parked. We didn't pick up anything rare or unusual, but it was fun. We had 24 species including Osprey, Red-shouldered Hawk, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Brown Creeper, and Winter Wren. We did find one Eastern Red-backed Salamander, and lots of Wood Frog eggs. We ended around 11:15am, and I know I am looking forward to the next one! Pamela Fisher

Hello All,

This afternoon after work, I stopped by Duck Hollow and spotted 8 Northern Shovelers (4 pairs) resting on the gravel spit. This is the most I've ever seen here! John English showed up and we enjoyed seeing four horned grebes (one in breeding plumage), a few bufflehead, the continuing drake redhead, and 6 double-crested cormorants that flew in from downriver. The redhead x ring-necked continues to elude me though just about everyone else has seen it. Oh well!

Subject: Dauphin County - Majority of Pine Siskins left Sunday
Date: Tue Mar 31 2015 14:01 pm
From: 00000019240c0ca1-dmarc-request AT list.audubon.org
 
Early Sunday the usual morning carpet of 300 plus Pine Siskins were feeding voraciously at my feeders. About 9am, most of them swarmed into the top of one particular large black walnut tree, and commenced to vocalize loudly.  Far more vocalizing than on a usual day (which is pretty loud). They took off to circle around the property perimeter in an undulating swarm, then landed back in the walnut tree top. It was much like being at Middle Creek watching the snow geese over the lake when spooked by the eagles. The Siskins did this several times, with more Siskins joining them, coming from the large, white pine and spruce trees to the west of my yard. Then, as I suspected, they took off and were gone. Approx. 30 Siskins remain today at the feeders. 
I'll report back if I see any nesting behavior.

There were two Greater Yellowlegs in the flooded fields in Haafsville this
morning. They walked right past a Killdeer, so I was able to get a good
idea of their size. In addition to the Yellowlegs and Killdeer, there were
"the usual suspects": Canada Geese, Wood Ducks, Northern Pintail, Mallards,
and one Black Duck, plus an Eastern Phoebe.

I did a loop around the Allegheny River late morning /early afternoon yesterday. Some interesting & surprising finds and 3 life birds for me.

Harmar Wetlands: Great Egret, Wood duck drake hanging tight with a mallard hen, and two mergansers. I'm guessing common females. I haven't positively ID'd them yet. They were fairly distant and it was too windy for the scope to be effective.

Highland Park: At the small pond on Lake Dr. Male Northern Pintail (Life bird for me!)

Chapel Harbor inlet in Fox Chapel: Hooded Mergansers (male & female), Horned Grebes (males in breeding plumage, females), Northern Mockingbird (life bird), Song Sparrow

Bell Harbor: 3 Turkey Vultures roosting near the docks

I had never seen robins at my suet feeder until I changed from a flat cake
to a cylindrical shape hanging from a shepherd's hook. The smaller birds
cling to the wire cage as usual. 2 days ago thee was a robin standing
upright on a study curlicue on the hook and eating the suet (no seeds).

Hi Rick, and thanks for the nice note. I like to reply online in case
there are others interested in the topic.

Your points are well made, thank you, and I too have been aggravated,
especially by the starlings, which arrive in gangs and maurade through
everything.

My suet is not the pre-made cakes, but from a butcher -- Friday's Market, a
wonderful local place in the west end of Pittsburgh. Tom gets fresh
sides of beef weekly, and can cut suet "cakes" to any size if you ask.

So the Robin was there entirely for the suet, I'd imagine.

I'd say if you can get some fresh suet, try that on a platform and see what
happens!

best wishes,

Jerry

Jerry,

I wonder if the robins like the suet for the seeds that are imbedded in
the cakes. Anyway I got tired of having my suet feeders ravaged
by squirrels, starlings and house sparrows. So I hang the suet cage from
a long wire or chain (3 ft.) and just attach it in the middle so it’s a bit
‘tippy’.
When I put in the suet cakes I leave them in the plastic tray so only the
side facing the ground is exposed. That way only birds like woodpeckers
can get to the suet.

I don’t go through suet cakes nearly as fast as I used to.

Good birding.

Gerry,
I never had robins at suet feeders. Well, that was the case up until 2013.
Since then they have been regular visitors in the spring and early summer.
My suet feeder is a wooden feeder that is only open and accessible on the
lower surface facing the ground. This is supposed to make it difficult for
starlings, grackles, and blue jays to get to the suet but they manage. The
robins fly up to it and either grab some suet at the feeder or grab suet
that has fallen to the ground or some of both. I suspect they are going
after
the suet and not the seed that is in the suet.

My suet feeder is a wooden feeder that is only open and accessible on the
lower surface facing the ground. This is supposed to make it difficult for
starlings, grackles, and blue jays to get to the suet but they manage. The
robins fly up to it and either grab some suet at the feeder or grab suet
that has fallen to the ground or some of both. I suspect they are going after
the suet and not the seed that is in the suet.

  This morning I birded at Jennings Prairie. I found patches of lingering snow and in the dead forest area I discovered some fresh beaver sign. Most of the trees in this area were killed by a beaver dam a number of years ago and I wonder if they will rebuild the dam and flood the area again. The trail would be under water and access to this birding hotspot would be limited. It was a good morning and my list of bird highlights is below:

Eastern Towhee (1; FOY for Butler County)
Eastern Phoebe (1; FOY for Butler County)
Red-shouldered Hawk (1)
Brown Creeper (1 singing)
Hermit Thrush (1; FOY)
Barred Owl (1)

I  was at Reistville ponds area and the Pectoral Sandpiper was not in the
many wet areas in the area. But it could still be there.

The Wilson's Snipe was there joined by 2 Lesser Yellowlegs at Fox Rd. and 1
Lesser was at the 501 pond near Reistville.

I had 2 flocks of American Pipits of 140 then 12 both along Reistville Road
.

At Myerstown Quarry I had only 25 Ring-necked Ducks and about 100 Canada
Geese.

At Millardsville Quarry the area had only 22 Ring-necked Ducks and I had 2
Northern Rough-winged Swallows with 17 Tree Swallows in the lower pond.

At Middle Creek WMA there was about 1500 Snow Geese at Chapel Road and 1
Double-crested Cormorant at Chapel Road also.

Observed three over the Schuylkill River at the abandoned Sanatoga Road Bridge adjacent to the Sanatoga Desilting Basin (Ebird Hotspot) in northern Chester County. First of year for me and a relatively early date, in my humble opinion. These swallows have been reported almost daily at Green Lane since March 23 and were also reported today in central Chester County, according to me quick search on Ebird.

 Yesterday, Corinne and I headed out the door at 4am to do a county big day to see what we could find around our home turf. It was a cold 18'F when we heard our 1st owl but hit 47"F under sunny skies in the afternoon.  Minsi lake was frozen and the quarries about 2/3's frozen.  Most of our travels were close to the Delaware River and we ended up with a respectable 86 species.  Most of the species we added were before 1pm (72 species). After 1300 we only managed 14.  We did not do any scouting and focused on favorite places and several targeted birds that we knew about.  Our day ended at 1945 after getting our last bird, Wilson's Snipe.

Hi Rick, and thanks for the nice note.  I like to reply online in case  
there are others interested in the topic.

Your points are well made, thank you, and I too have been aggravated,
especially by the starlings, which arrive in gangs and maurade through
everything.

My suet is not the pre-made cakes, but from a butcher -- Friday's Market, a
wonderful local place in the west end of Pittsburgh. Tom gets fresh
sides of beef weekly, and can cut suet "cakes" to any size if you ask.

So the Robin was there entirely for the suet, I'd imagine.

I'd say if you can get some fresh suet, try that on a platform and see what
happens!

best wishes,

Jerry

Jerry,

I wonder if the robins like the suet for the seeds that are imbedded in
the cakes. Anyway I got tired of having my suet feeders ravaged
by squirrels, starlings and house sparrows. So I hang the suet cage from
a long wire or chain (3 ft.) and just attach it in the middle so it’s a bit
‘tippy’.
When I put in the suet cakes I leave them in the plastic tray so only the
side facing the ground is exposed. That way only birds like woodpeckers
can get to the suet.

I don’t go through suet cakes nearly as fast as I used to.

Good birding.

A group of us found Lycoming County's first Iceland Gull this evening at
the Williamsport dam:
https://flic.kr/p/rRSoVk

This is the third new county bird found this month, with a Glaucous Gull
being found at the dam on 3/24 and a Greater White-fronted Goose being
found in a farm field on 3/15. Two GBBG, a species with few records for the
county, have also been found at the dam this year.

We are having a large number of gulls migrate through this year but the
main reason for these finds is a dedicated group of us going out nearly
every night at dusk and sorting through the gulls that come in. We're
having a lot of fun doing it. I just wrote an article about the gulls that
will be published for the Lycoming Audubon Bird Lore column in the
Williamsport Sun-Gazette next Sunday.

The group that found tonight's gull was myself, Bobby Brown, Bob Brown, Deb
Brown, Joe Yoder, Eric and Yvonne Hartshaw, and Maddi Dunlap

Good birding!

Apparently Robins like suet if given a means to access it.

I went out for the morning paper and saw a downy WP, and a Robin sharing
two sides of a hanging suet feeder that was propped against a flat platform
sunflower feeder, which allowed the robin to STAND while feeding.

This behavior of the Robin might demonstrate they like suet, but perhaps
their feet are not strong enough to cling to a piece of bark, or the wire
edge of a typical suet ring, but if given on a flat platform they will come
for it.

Try it and let us know.
