May List

Our best month so far. 179 species. We bracketed our Ohio odyssey with 2 trips to Brigantine before we had to pretty much shut down the birding for some personal stuff. But, even while spending a couple of days mostly waiting at Staten Island University Hospital I did manage to see a few interesting birds, the most amusing being this hen turkey right off the parking lot.
We now enter the summer doldrums. Already the birds seem to have stopped singing, either because of the recent heat or, more likely, because they're nesting.  This makes birds harder to find and of course the migrants have already passed through. I've pretty much "used up" all the birds in the Whiting WMA, our backyard, and Crestwood Village for my Bird A Day contest. I've had to use way too many "reliable" birds this last week. In June I'll be looking and/or listening for thrushes and flycatchers but my real concentration will have to be on shorebirds if I want to continue the challenge.

Brigantine 5/25--White-rumped Sandpiper, Least Tern, Black Skimmer

Black Skimmers are back!
I felt like we were back  in the early days of our Ohio trip as blustery temperatures in the mid-40's settled over New Jersey. We headed down to Brigantine, expecting cool temperatures, which are good to keep the bugs away, but not expecting the wind to be as ferocious as it was. It made the idea of scanning a thousand sandpipers, looking for the oddball, ludicrous. Usually, your car acts as a mobile blind. Today, on the Wildlife Drive, it was more like a shelter. Still, we managed 47 species, including some favorites, like the above Black Skimmers (2nd only to American Oystercatcher in the favorite non-passerine category).

The shorebirds numbered in the thousands today. You couldn't drive 50 feet without encounter another pod of Semipalmated Sandpipers--my estimate of 7000 is exactly that. There were so man peeps too far out to scan (especially with the wind) that the number could be twice or thrice that. Mixed in with them were Dunlins, a few Least Sandpipers (probably more, but with all the mud, it was hard to distinguish the easy field mark--yellow legs), a few White-rumped Sandpipers we could i.d. based on their long wings crossing at the tail, and another crowd favorite, Ruddy Turnstones.

A good find by Shari was of this Least Tern sitting on the mud flats near one of the sluice gates. Note the white forehead and yellow bill. In the photo, of course, with nothing for comparison, you can't see how tiny this guy is compared to other terns. There were a few other terns around, not as many as one would expect, but we did get a few Gull-billed Terns along with the ever-present Forster's Terns.

Not much in the way of passerines--they were, I suppose, "hunkered down" in the wind. We did manage a Field Sparrow atop a blade of high grass.

At the exit ponds, a drake Wood Duck was a good capper for the day. The weather didn't look like it was going to improve (in fact, it was deteriorating) so we only did one circuit of the drive whereas usually we feel we haven't really completed the day without at least two. But that's the good thing about living so close to Brig now--we don't feel we have to torture ourselves to justify the trip.

Colliers Mills WMA 5/22--Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Colliers Mills WMA is a 13,000 acre site in the northeast corner of the Pine Barrens, about 15 miles from here. It isn't far from the farm where we found the lapwings, but the habitat couldn't be more different--many lakes, a huge pine & oak forest, grasslands, cedars swamps, and a long sand road that connect Route 539 to Route 571 about 5 miles away. I went there this morning because there are birds there that are hard to find in other places in the Pine Barrens.

The problem with the place is that it is so huge and has such varied habitat, that no matter where I am I always think I should be somewhere else. (This is not a problem restricted to birding for me) Today, I decided to stay "local." I didn't want to travel up the sand road in my two-wheel drive vehicle. So I parked  near the entrance and walked a few roads nearby for a couple of hours. In that time I found 2 new birds for my Ocean County life list--Baltimore Oriole and Indigo Bunting--and a couple of other surprises, the biggest being seeing three Yellow-billed Cuckoos within about 3 minutes. Two of them were chasing one another around in the tree tops. I've seen cuckoos in the past, but never more than one at a time. The Indigo Bunting I found atop a snag at the edge of the grasslands--I first saw a bird with the proper profile but color was  hard to determine in the morning overcast verging on fog. I lost the bird for a minute, but heard a "song" that went roughly "ti ti whee whee zeer zeer" and discovered the bird a little lower in the tangle where I was able to look at it for a long time and definitely confirm that it wasn't a Blue Grosbeak (not that that would have been bad.)

I feel that with better light and more time I could have scanned the fields and come up with Grasshopper Sparrow, meadowlarks, who knows, maybe even a Bobolink, but life was calling me away this morning, so I settled for 34 species. I'm going to try to make this a more regular stop on my birding circuit.

Ohio & Canada Trip Lists & Blog Links

Baltimore Oriole, Magee Marsh
Photos: Shari Zirlin
We drove out to Ohio for the tail end of The Biggest Week in American Birding, an annual event put on by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, and stayed through the next week which must be the 2nd Biggest Week in American Birding. Ohio is the place to be for migration, as the birds stop over on the south shore of Lake Erie before making their way to the Canadian Woods.

Below are links to the posts covering our trip and species lists for Canada & Ohio. For the trip we had 155 species between us.
