Lark Sparrow!!

Today Marie and I were tooling around one of my favorite haunts – Eastport Wastelands – and decided to take a turn yet traveled there. The place is HUGE, so we haven’t covered most of it yet. No sooner did I get out the truck when this stunning Lark Sparrow flushed up and perched right out in the open.

Eastport Wastelands - 25 Apr 2015
Eastport Wastelands – 25 Apr 2015

It’s the first record since 27 September 2008 in Duval County, and the first spring report I know about. What a spectacular way to end the day!

 

19 Apr 2015 – Duval County 12 Day Big Year (12DBY)

Key April 12DBY target species: Migrants, migrants, and more migrants.

Final April 12DBY results: 105 ABA countable species, 8 eBird checklists, and 3,489 individual birds observed.

Best targets achieved: Glossy Ibis, Solitary Sandpiper, and Orchard Oriole
Targets missed: Cape May Warbler
Most unexpected species: Common Loon

April’s 12DBY selection coincided with a Duval Audubon field trip I was leading at Kingsley Plantation and Fort George Island. Mid-April at this location can be excellent for migrants, and being in close proximity to Huguenot Memorial Park played nicely into my strategy to pick up some of the arrivals there as well.

My day started at 6AM at the Ribault Club on Fort George Island for owling, where I was joined by two early trip participants. We managed a single Eastern Screech-Owl, a handful of Lightning Bugs, and several Chuck-will’s-widows, adding the day’s first new 12DBY species. The field trip proper started at Ribault Club’s parking lot around 7AM, where we checked the Fort George Inlet and sandbars from behind the Club. I managed a single Gull-billed Tern over the salt marsh, but nothing else new for the competition. Birding proved slow most of the morning, so as a consequence I slowly padded the 12DBY list with species like Chimney Swift, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Great Crested Flycatcher, a single Ovenbird, a calling Summer Tanager, Black-throated Blue, Prairie, and Yellow-throated Warblers, and both Indigo and a glorious male Painted Bunting.

We moved on to Kingsley Plantation at 9AM and Gary Davis found not one but two new birds for the list – Orchard Oriole and Merlin. Both species were perched for in-the-scope views along the tall treeline next to the giftshop/ranger building. This spot used to be “magical” in previous years with skeins of migrants moving along the tops of the trees in the morning light, but in recent years it’s difficult to manage a single warbler species there. Sad commentary on the abundance of migrants here in spring migration. On the way back to the parking lot, I noticed a Common Loon flying over the garden heading northeast. This “flying bowling pin” was another new 12DBY bird.

The trip disbanded after Kingsley, so Marie and I headed over to Huguenot Memorial Park on an incoming tide and did one circuit around the park. The stake-out birds were Marbled Godwit and Whimbrel (we got both), and I also added Least, Caspian, and Sandwich Tern making a four tern addition to the competition.

The next target was Solitary Sandpiper and I had two locations staked out from seeing them the previous day. The first spot was Sheffield Regional Park, where the pair of sandpipers seen not 24 hours prior had departed. The visit wasn’t a total bust, however, since I added Eastern Kingbird near the playground. Leaving Sheffield, we swung by nearby M&M Dairy and scoped an impressive flock of 35-50 foraging Glossy Ibis – one of the largest groups of the species you’re likely to find in Duval County. A quick check of the power line cut on Port Jacksonville Parkway produced a male Blue Grosbeak (they nest in the area), and Cattle Egret (a species I conspicuously dipped on thus far this year).

Eastport Wastelands was my final stop and the target was the lone Solitary Sandpiper Marie and I found there the previous day. Eastport Wastelands is what we’ve affectionately named this desolate acreage that borders Heckscher Drive to the south and Eastport Road to the west; it is a mostly barren hellhole where the land has obviously been pillaged and poisoned over the last century by the neighboring gas and oil refinery and cardboard recycling plant. Now, I have no science to back that statement up, but it doesn’t take a genius to make the connection. The land is sparsely covered by vegetation that is somehow still alive, but 90% of it is blanketed with fried plants and trees. It seriously looks like a nuclear bomb has been dropped on the entire parcel. There are some swampy cypress bottomlands that contain a few waders and ducks, but no species in numbers. I’m confident this is the area where Sam Grimes recorded nesting King Rails and Purple Gallinules in the 1930’s, but there is no evidence or indication that they’re still extant there – and believe me, I have tried.

Having said all that, in the last 6 or 7 visits I’ve recorded 75 species on the property, so there is life there – and on Sunday we found 5 (yes, five!) Solitary Sandpipers. The sandpipers were in a large “black water” mud bog that we parked on the edge of and set up our scopes to view them. In the distance, a camouflaged Jeep Cherokee with an exhaust snorkel jutting up in the air next to the driver’s window slowly rumbled into view. Marie said something like “Oh no, he’s going to head right over here and flush these birds”. Well, she was absolutely correct – the Jeep proceeded to rumble through 2 feet of deep mud/sludge in that black water bog and came to a stop right next to us. The window slowly rolled down and we were treated to two locals with their child in the backseat. The driver proceeded to tell me how to navigate the bog as he was eyeballing my near-pristinely washed ten year old 4×4 (a vehicle I obviously 4 wheel in, but not mud bog in), and followed it with “Go git you some of that. I’ll be back around in 10 minutes to check on you.” A friendly chap, but we had no intention of waiting for that ten minutes to pass. A word of advice – the Eastport Wastelands is some of the most challenging birding you will encounter in NE FL (think a cross between deep Pumpkin Hill and Imeson), and is not somewhere to even attempt without a 4×4 vehicle – and preferably a truck that sits up high. An AWD car or SUV will likely not make it, and this is not an area where you want to get stuck, believe me. AAA will not come to your rescue there.

Overall, I added 26 species to the Duval County 12DBY in April, bringing the total after the 4-day mark to 175 species. I still feel like I’m on track for the 220 I set as a 12DBY goal.

Summary of the Winter Season – 2014-2015

Summary of the Winter Season
1 Dec 2014– 28 Feb 2015
Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam & St. Johns Counties

Sight-only observations are considered “reports”. Those supported by verifiable evidence (photographs, video or audio recordings, or specimens) are called “records.” A county designation (in italics) accompanies the first-time listing of each site in this report.

Five Greater White-fronted Goose continued at M&M Dairy (Duval) from the previous season, remaining until 25 December – unfortunately a few days shy of being included on the annual Christmas Bird Count. A single white morph Snow Goose was observed off Sawpit Road on Black Hammock Island on 27 December and remained through at least 4 January.

A first winter Common Eider was recorded at the foot of the George Crady fishing pier (Nassau) from 16 December through the end of the season. Across Nassau Sound from the Eider’s location, three White-winged Scoters visited Spoonbill Pond (Duval) from 21 February through the end of the season. A single Long-tailed Duck was recorded at Fort Clinch SP (Nassau) fishing pier on 31 January.

It was a good year for Red-throated Loons in Northeast Florida beginning on 26 December at Huguenot Memorial Park (Duval), with a close balance between sightings of Red-throated and Common Loons.

A single Magnificent Frigatebird was reported this season, coming from St. Augustine Beach (St. Johns) on 28 December.

Roseate Spoonbills continue to remain through winter in increasing numbers throughout St. Johns and Duval Counties; they have yet to push their wintering range north into Nassau, but it’s perhaps only a matter of time.

A very rare-in-county Short-tailed Hawk was recorded on Amelia Island (Nassau) 18 January.

Rarely reported in Duval County, two Virginia Rails were reported from the Pumpkin Hill area during the CBC on 27 December. An equally rare King Rail was reported from Ringhaver Park (Duval) on 21 January, and was subsequently recorded on 15 February at the same location.

Contracted bird surveys on government property within the Timucuan Preserve (Duval) produced two significant records this season: on 2 December a single American Golden-Plover was recorded, marking perhaps the only winter record for the species, and on 10 February the same survey team photographed the first Duval County record for Ruff (an adult female).

Purple Sandpiper has become very difficult to find the last few years at Huguenot Memorial Park, but at least two were regularly observed throughout the season at Fort Clinch SP (Nassau).

It was a down year for white gulls at Huguenot Memorial Park this season, with no Glaucous and just a single observation of Iceland Gull (18 January).

Reports of White-winged Dove increased this winter in Duval beyond their normal localized area in Atlantic Beach. A pair were recorded at the Jacksonville Zoo’s parking lot from mid-February through the end of the month. Another was reported from Huguenot Memorial Park on 23 February.

Eastern Whip-poor-wills are usually very scarce in winter, but there were three reports in Duval County this season, beginning on 27 December at Betz Tiger Point Preserve. They were also observed on Little Talbot Island and Reddie Point Preserve in January.

For perhaps the first winter in recent memory, no unusual hummingbirds were reported wintering in the region.

The Cassin’s Kingbird that has wintered along Route 305 in Flagler County was reported again this season from 14-20 January.

A Nashville Warbler was recorded visiting the bird bath at a private residence in Jacksonville (Duval) from 17-23 February. Prairie Warblers are annual, but uncommon in winter in NE FL; a single report came from the Mount Cornelia area of Fort George Island on 29 December. A single Black-throated Green Warbler was recorded on 1 February during an Audubon field trip to Cradle Creek Preserve (Duval).

One observation of Lincoln’s Sparrow came from the GTM NERR on 26 January, marking what is believed to be the first modern day St. Johns County report.

Two separate Western Tanagers were recorded in the region this season; one at a private residence in Jacksonville’s Mandarin area (Duval) from 1 December – 15 February, and the other on Amelia Island on 12 February. The Amelia Island tanager is the first known Nassau County record for the species.

Pine Siskins were reported on 1 January at Seaton Creek Preserve (Duval), and up to 15 of them were recorded there on 25 January, marking perhaps the largest recorded flock county history.

Happy Easter!

Marie and I decided to head out to Huguenot Memorial Park this morning for Easter sunrise. Strong winds have been coming out of the ENE for the last day or so, and temperatures dropped back into the low to mid 60’s. We were hoping to find some new birds at Huguenot but didn’t end up with any. Regardless, right now is a fantastic time to bird Huguenot with the variety of terns, gulls, and shorebirds (today we had 13 shorebird species). Marbled Godwit - 5 Apr 2015 Two Marbled Godwits put on quite a show this morning; they were joined by a nearby Whimbrel and pair of American Oystercatchers. The Black-bellied Plovers and Dunlin are starting to gain their marvelous spring plumages – speaking of which, we were treated to two late/remaining Bonaparte’s Gulls, one with a complete black hood. That’s not something we see everyday here in Florida!

28 March 2015 – Duval County 12 Day Big Year (12DBY)

Key March 12DBY target species: Yellow-throated Vireo, Purple Martin, Northern Parula, Bachman’s Sparrow.

Final March 12DBY results: 102 ABA countable species (1 non-countable), 10 eBird checklists, and 2,117 individual birds observed.

Best targets achieved: Bachman’s Sparrow
Targets missed: Cattle Egret
Most unexpected species: Vesper Sparrow

The plan for the March 12DBY was to start with Bachman’s Sparrow, which is a rare-in-county and well-documented declining species in Florida. There is only one known reliable location in Duval County for the species – Julington Durbin Creek Preserve. Marie and I met Chris and Ellen there at dawn among a throng of teenage cross country runners, and were immediately greeted by calling Brown-headed Nuthatches and Pine Warblers in the parking lot. We took the short hike in to the Bachman’s spot (go left at the trail kiosk), and recorded at least 4 singing Bachman’s. They are often very easy to see singing from an exposed perch there, but were not very cooperative for us in that regard. From there we headed on down the trail towards the deciduous forest leading to Durbin Creek; along the way we got fantastic looks at Brown-headed Nuthatch, Eastern Bluebird, and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers. An inquisitive Ruby-crowned Kinglet displayed its signature crimson crown at eye level. At the edge of the creek, we happened upon a flock feeding rather high in the canopy, making visual ID difficult, but we did manage Black-and-white Warbler, Red-eyed Vireo, and Yellow-throated Vireo. Wild Turkeys added to the commotion by calling in the distance. Our haul from Julington-Durbin Preserve: 31 species in 1.5 hours.

After a brief stop at Starbucks, we headed to Westside Industrial Park by way of Commonwealth Avenue and Imeson Road, where we made a brief roadside stop for Northern Flicker and both Yellowlegs. There’s a muddy pond on Imeson directly across from the Baldwin Rails Trail parking lot that can be good for waders and shorebirds.

At Westside Industrial Park we dipped on the resident Limpkins, but we admittedly didn’t try to hard for them this time…their time will come in June. We tallied 43 species at this eBird hotspot, including a first-ever Yellow-throated Vireo, calling Barred Owl (another new 12DBY bird), and roaming group of Wild Turkey including two displaying Toms. The highlight was undoubtedly seeing a swarm of swallows (Barn, Tree, and Northern Rough-winged) all flying low over a small pond in bright sunlight. Since we were positioned higher on the edge of the pond, we were able to really study and appreciate the fields marks – and sheer magnificence – of this group of swallows from above. Quite a treat.

A brief stop at Liberty Park produced distant Eastern Meadowlarks and some Killdeer, and when we decided to “just check” the cattle gate area off Moncrief Road, we were treated with point-blank, in-the-scope views of two Vesper Sparrows. Lunch at Subway in the Pritchard Road truck stop was followed by a journey to the Lem Turner Spray Fields where Chris got us on a single Purple Martin (year bird!), and Ellen pointed out a group of birds foraging around the garage. That group ended up consisting of several “eastern/yellow” Palm Warblers and a few Chipping Sparrows.

It was now around 1:30PM and we headed up Lannie Road to the model airplane fields where we managed a few species, but the highlight was a large Cottonmouth sunning in the middle of the dirt driveway. Chris and Ellen departed from there, and it was a great 6 hours or so of comradery and birding with them!

A quick check indicated we were around 70 species on the day, and Marie and I thought a “Century Run” was certainly doable without much more effort – especially since we hadn’t yet hit the coast. We made our way to Spoonbill Pond where we recorded 36 species, including many “late” duck species like American Wigeon. New to our 12DBY? Black-necked Stilt. We also took a minute to enjoy the ocean views provided by the park bench some locals constructed. SDC17230

Our last stop was a quick run through at Huguenot Memorial Park, hoping for the Marbled Godwit I recorded there the previous evening. We didn’t find the Godwit, but did add enough new birds to put us over 100 species for the day before 5PM – not too shabby considering we did virtually no woodland birding.

Overall I added 11 new species to the 12DBY effort, bringing the total for 3 carefully selected days to 149 species. Considering I still don’t have species like Cattle Egret or House Sparrow on the list, I still think 200 species in 12 days is very possible.
