Tropical/Couch's

Melvin Weber
 

Yellow bellied Kingbird, no white in tail (seen well). Looked more Tropical with green back but did not respond to Tropical tape. When I played Couch’s it dove at me and flew over my head to other trees. Location is Bonnet Care Spillway on east levee north of Airline. About 100 yards north of the picnic area ramps. Was on east side of levee but flew over me to west side.


Two different hummingbirds

Tracey Banowetz
 

I need help identifying two hummingbirds at my feeder today. Sorry for the blurry first image; I will try for a better one. Second image (the perching bird) definitely has a bunch of rosy gorget feathers on the other side.
Kind regards,

Re: Evening Grosbeak in Arkansas

LABIRD: Here’s what I have in the intro to the species account for Evening Grosbeak in the LA bird book draft:


Evening Grosbeak Coccothraustes vespertinus

STATUS AND HABITAT: From the winter of 1961-62 to the mid 1980s, an irregular winter visitor, fairly common to common, primarily to Northern Interior south to approximately the latitude of Baton Rouge; casual farther south. Not recorded most winters during that period, but large numbers appeared during some invasion years, particularly winters 1968-69, 1977-78, and 1985-86. Currently a casual, at best, winter visitor: no records since 1996.

Found primarily at bird feeders in suburban and rural areas, but may be seen virtually anywhere with trees.

Records in Louisiana have clustered as follows (ABF): winter 1961-62 (5 reports; ca. 74 birds), 1968-69 (more than 5000 reported from 55 localities; Able 1969), 1969-70 (3 reports, ca. 113 birds), 1972-73 (23 localities, ca. 151 birds), 1973-74 (1 locality, 1 bird); 1975-76 (2 localities, 20 birds), 1977-78 (11 localities, 3200+ birds), 1978-79 (2 localities, 2 birds), 1980-81 (6 localities, 175+ birds), 1983-84 (4 localities; ca. 454 birds), and 1985-86 (16 localities, ca. 470 birds), 1986-87 (1 locality, 24 birds), 1987-88 (1 locality, 2 birds), 1995-96 (1 locality, 5 birds).

The first records of this species in Louisiana were not obtained until 1962 (Lowery 1974). That this species was not recorded until then probably reflects increases in populations in the eastern USA, possibly as a consequence of increased survivorship during winter with the increasing popularity of bird feeding <dig out ref - get BNA data>.

SEASONAL PATTERNS: In some years, the first birds are seen in late November, but in most years, the first birds do not arrive until January or sometimes until mid-February. In 1986, an obvious influx occurred in late March. In major invasion years, individuals often stay into early May.

I also think that I may have been the last person to see this species in Louisiana. The last one at our feeder (from a flock that peaked at 33 birds) was May 4, 1986.

To give a sense of the potential in an invasion winter, many who were birding in the early 1980s (I was a precocious kindergartener I am pretty sure) recall that at a residence in Greenwell Springs just outside of Baton Rouge in March of 1984, over 400 Evening Grosbeaks were coming to sunflower feeders. Many added the species to their Louisiana list there. There were also Purple Finch, Pine Siskins, and still something of a novelty at that time, House Finch. I saw my first orange variant HOFI there.

Read all about it:

American Birds (Vol. 38, No. 5, p. 925) reported "up to 450".

American Birds PDFs are searchable online.

As John said, the last invasion was in 1986, which culminated in a bird "in the wild" in late April in Nunez Woods on a Cameron chenier.

To add to the conversation (hopefully) - if you aren't familiar with the flight calls of Pine Siskin, Purple Finch, and/or Evening Grosbeak, you should absolutely practice learning them this winter. 100% of the siskins (18 mornings) and P. Finches (7 mornings) I've detected in my yard this fall/winter have been calling flyovers.

The "tzew" call of Pine Siskin is loud and fairly easy to learn. The soft "pic" call of Purple Finch is much harder to hear, and to me sounds reminiscent of a distant Carolina Wren "tink" call (important not to confuse). Evening Grosbeak is a bird for which I have very limited field experience, but has a fairly distinct call, they are noisy like the other winter finches, and I'd bet they're more likely to be found flying around and calling than at a feeder...although eventually we're all hoping they'll hit feeders at some point this winter in LA.

I think the last irruption year we had in Louisiana was 1986. I saw them as a kid. And there’s no need to turn this into a chain of who saw them and how many and when (happens on LABIRD probably every winter!), but suffice it to say that this is on the dream list on state birds for any birder in Louisiana who didn’t start birding until the late 1980s or later.

Capitol Lake (Baton Rouge) rarities

Matt Brady
 

Hello all. Several rarities of state-wide interest were found at Capitol
Lake, Baton Rouge over the past couple of days:

Black-throated Gray Warbler – Andre Moncrieff found one this morning in the
vicinity of the Arsenal, on the south side of the lake. This is a different
individual than the one spotted by David Vander Pluym on November 22nd,
meaning that it is a second Parish record. The first bird was an adult male
with a solid black throat, the present bird is an immature with a white
throat. It's been elusive, but several other people have been able to get
looks at it today, which is a relief since the first bird was observed for
a very short period of time.

Western Tanager – while searching for the Black-throated Gray this morning,
I spotted an immature male Western Tanager on the north side of the Arsenal
building. It was hanging out in the oaks, but did respond to some mob track
playback. There are a few previous Baton Rouge records, most recently in
2017.

Vaux's Swifts – at least ten individuals were flying around over Capitol
Lake and Arsenal Park.

Fulvous Whistling-Duck – the bird found by Cameron on Nov. 30th is still
present near the bridge at the SE corner of the main lake, along with
record numbers of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks. This is the third Parish
Record, but the first at a publicly-accessible location.

Greater Scaup – still an EBR rarity with just a few previous records, at
least two females are still present in the large Lesser Scaup flock on the
main part of Capitol Lake. Also in the flock are several Canvasbacks,
Redheads, Buffleheads, etc.

Tennessee Warbler – Oscar Johnson spotted one this morning while searching
for the Black-throated Gray Warbler, the first December record for Baton
Rouge (at least in eBird), and the fourth winter record for the greater
Baton Rouge region.

No sign of the Prairie Warbler that is back for its third winter in recent
days, though it seems likely it's still around. No sign of either the
Tropical Kingbird or Cape May Warbler that were around in late December
2019 and January 2020 yet, so keep your eyes peeled! And, of course, given
the recent discoveries, there could be other fun birds around.

Good birding,

Matt Brady
Baton Rouge

I haven't finished getting a lot of sightings into eBird, but I have notes
on a couple of observations well north of here from the 1970s and 1980s. I
have a recollection of making a trip in the 1990s as well, but cannot now
find those notes.

The only observation I have from this century is from Minnesota in 2013.
Still, I will put out an extra helping of sunflower seed.

Just a head’s up to everyone that someone in Mena, Arkansas, photographed
a single Evening Grosbeak yesterday (Nov 30) at a feeder in her yard.
Apparently the first confirmed in the state in about 20 years, and of
course it coincides with our unprecedented early irruption of Pine Siskin,
as well as a steady occurrence this year of Purple Finch. Mena is 3 hours
due north of Shreveport by car. This is essentially a BOLO for this cold
front as well as future ones this season (it’s only Dec 1!). Obviously, if
you have such a rare bird, PLEASE try to get documentation with photos,
video, etc.

Thanks,

Evening Grosbeak in Arkansas

Fulvous Whistling-Duck - Baton Rouge

Cameron Rutt
 

Capitol Lake in Baton Rouge continues its recent hot streak. This morning,
I was surprised to find a striking Fulvous Whistling-Duck among a massive
local concentration of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks (I counted up to
~825). According to eBird, this is 300+ more Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks
than the previous parish high count, which was just set a few days ago at
Capitol Lake.

The Fulvous Whistling-Duck was staying close to shore in the southeast arm
of the main lake, just north of the small bridge on Capitol Access Road. I
spotted the bird there a few minutes before 8:00 AM, and I just received
word from Matt Brady that it was still present as of 9:45 AM. This is one
of the first records for East Baton Rouge Parish.

Good Birding,
Cameron


LA Western Winter Hummingbird Report #3

Johnson, Erik
 

HUMNET and LABIRD,
The high number of western hummingbirds in Louisiana continues! Especially Rufous and Black-chinned Hummingbirds seem to be in good supply this year. I very much appreciate all the reports coming in through email, list serves, and social media - please keep them coming! Given the volume of reports, it's not impossible that I've overlooked some, so please do check me for accuracy.
The vast majority of the Rufous/Allen's this year appear to be immature (1st winter). The trick to determining their sex is in the tail, but not necessarily in the gorget, as both sexes can have gorget feathering. The central tail feathers (the ones that sit on top when the tail is folded) are brown in immature males and green in adult and immature females.
For new reports to record in our weekly report and database, please provide me with the following information:
- Your name
- Your city/town
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other birds, the date it was observed)
- Species - please send photos, if available, for confirmation
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom
If additional information is learned through further observation or banding, please report those updates and I'll make the changes. Also, please report the last observed (LO) date, if possible, when the bird leaves. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and marked.
In addition to western species, please report Ruby-throated Hummingbird that have been present on or after November 15.
Happy hummingbirding!

Watch out for Townsend's Solitaires

James V Remsen
 

LABIRD: A couple of days ago, I found a Townsend’s Solitaire in SE Oklahoma only about 175 miles from Louisiana border:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S76579420

This is evidently a big winter for them, with records as far south as Galveston, just a few miles from Louisiana, and as far east as South Carolina.

So, be on the lookout. In winter, Townsend’s Solitaires are juniper berry specialists (aka cedars in East). So, if you find cedars in fruit, that would be where I would look. This species is unobtrusive and quiet, but responds vigorously to playback (because they are highly territorial in winter).

Re: Our first-ever buff-bellied hummingbird

Dear All:

Nancy Newfield was able to trap and band our buffy this morning. It is a
hatch-year hummingbird, but its gender cannot be determined. We later saw
what appeared to be a female RTHU with a yellow color mark. While we have
not caught it yet, we hope to this week to see where it was banded. This is
our 4th winter hummer this winter.

Dear All:

I am pleased to report that today I saw a buff-bellied hummingbird in our
backyard. It was so bright green that I believe that it was an adult male,
but I did not get any decent photos to be able to confirm. Blowups of the
bird from two photos I took are attached.

I saw a scissortail on Thursday, Nov 19, on a wire, at the corner of East Kings Highway and E. 70th street. Maybe the same one you saw.

Re: Scoter ID?Capitol Lake?

James V Remsen
 

Jay — in case you’re not familiar with the online resource “eBird", you can check these things for yourself by several ways, e.g. Explore > Hotspots > Capitol Lake/Arsenal, and then look at all photos from Recent Visits. Many show the white wing patch, and several of them show the head-bill pattern sufficiently to distinguish the two species without having to worry about oft-occluded wing patch. The head-bill difference are illustrated in all field guides, including even the oldest ones — you can pick up a used Peterson on Amazon for under $10.

There was some discussion of the bird’s identity. When i viewed it yesterday, I concentrated on the facial pattern and never payed attention to the wings. I took a number of distant photos and after looking at them on my camera viewer, don’t see white wing patches with one exception where I might be seeing facial patches as the bird is preening.

So maybe the bird is a Surf Scoter after all?

white secondaries, a key character for White-winged Scoter and one not
present in Surf Scoter. Additionally, the shape and structure of the bill
and head, distribution of the white on the face, and other features all
point towards White-winged Scoter.

There was some discussion of the bird’s identity. When i viewed it yesterday, I concentrated on the facial pattern and never payed attention to the wings. I took a number of distant photos and after looking at them on my camera viewer, don’t see white wing patches with one exception where I might be seeing facial patches as the bird is preening.

So maybe the bird is a Surf Scoter after all?
