High Island,Texas migration Mecca

Howdee all,

Jeff and I left the Rio Grande Valley on Tuesday and headed north.

We traveled through roadsides littered with wildflowers.Boy scout woods and Smith Oaks_004

The

first night on our way to High Island we stayed in Matagorda.Boy scout woods and Smith Oaks_005

The following morning we went to the  nature park and joined a bird walk.Boy scout woods and Smith Oaks_008

We saw many migrants, Painted and Indigo buntings, Summer and Scarlet Tanagers,

and a few warblers..

We saw five Common night hawk flying and then spotted them all sitting on these posts.

We left after the bird walk anxious to continue our trip to High Island.IMG_4196So here we now are..on High Island, north of Galveston, a migration Mecca.

The first day we arrived we went straight to Boy Scout woods..and were treated to scads of birds ..we didn’t know where to look first.

We saw Cerulean, Magnolia, Canada and other warblers..Scarlet and Summer tanagers, Rose-breasted grosbeaks everywhere. Swanson’s thrush’s by the 100s..

Today was much slower..must have had a flight out last night.

I will post on the different birding areas later..

Until then…

Enjoy the funny bunny

Padre Island Birding, The Big Sit

Howdee all,

Sunday Jeff and I went to Padre Island to observe and help the Big Sit Team for the

Great Texas Birding Classic

“The Great Texas Birding Classic (GTBC), sponsored by the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, is a friendly, but serious birding for conservation tournament. It is held each year during April to coincide with the spectacular spring bird migration in Texas. During the tournament, teams vie to see who can spot and record the most bird species in a given time period. The adult teams with the highest species counts win the privilege of choosing the conservation projects that will be awarded Conservation Grant Grand Prizes.

To date, the GTBC has contributed $686,000 directly to avian habitat conservation along the Texas gulf coast through the Conservation Grant funding. Prior to each year’s competition, organizations submit conservation project proposals to win funding through the grants awarded by the winning teams.” from gcbo.org

Team: Groovy Billed Anis

Big Sit! Tournament Rules
• The Big Sit! Tournament will begin and end between midnight and midnight (a 24-hour calendar day) on
Sunday, April 25, 2010, regardless of the section of the coast birded.
• Teams with 1 to 10 people (all ages) watch birds from pre-defined 17-foot-diameter circles for up to 24 hours.
Circles can be anywhere within the 41-county Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail area.
• All teams will compete against each other, regardless of area birded.
• All birds must be confirmed by at least one team member. Only birds seen or heard from within the circle can
be counted.
• If a bird is seen or heard from within the circle but is too distant to identify, it is permissible to leave the circle
to get a closer look/listen for confirmation. However, any new bird seen or heard while confirming the original
can’t be counted unless it’s seen or heard from an “anchor” who stayed behind in your circle, or when you
return to your spot.
• The participants can work in shifts. No one person needs to be there throughout the whole Big Sit!
Tournament. You may leave and return to the area as frequently as desired, but you must be sure to return to
the exact spot each time. The same circle must be used for the entire Big Sit! Tournament.

Jeff and I arrived a bit later than we had intended, we stopped to do some birding at Sheepshead Road on the Island. Lots of new migrants were around, sparrows galore, it was hard to leave.

When we arrived the team was busy locating birds…some of the team members had been at the spot since midnight…

the big sit Groovy billed Anis_008

the big sit Groovy billed Anis_002

Jeff and I looked at the list and tried to find a few birds that the team needed.

We did spot at least one flycatcher for them, and pointed it out with my trusty mirror.

I use the mirror, by catching the sunlight, which then sends a beam of the reflected light in the direction i point the mirror..thus showing where the bird is.. I find it much easier than trying to describe where the bird is. The drawback is this only works when there is sunlight..wont work on cloudy days.

I would like to buy a laser pointer as well for those days when there is no sun.

The area was very birdie..lots of migrants coming thru…scads of sparrows and Kingbirds..I walked around hoping to see something needed by the team.

The Black-bellied whistling duck thought the grackle was a bit of a show off..

The Hooded warblers of last week are no where to be seen, neither are the Roseate Spoonbills.

As the sunsets the team looks for silhouettes and listens for calling birds..

It was getting very exciting..I hear talk of just a few more birds needed for some record..would they get them?the big sit Groovy billed Anis_021The mosquitoes start to come out in droves,Jeff has a dental appointment in Mexico the next day so we decide to leave. It was difficult to pull ourselves away from this birding team..Amazing birders…

As we left they were watching the moon for passing migrating birds…and listening for bird calls.the big sit Groovy billed Anis_017

Their final count was record-breaking, and just shy of the all-time any-place Big Sit record

You can read here for all the Totals

The team won First place for number of species 143 species

Thanks Marci for inviting us to take part in the Big Sit. We may take you up on your offer and help again in 2012.

Santa Ana and Quinta Mazatlan Birding, TX

Howdee all,

Guess what we did today?…..Yep..More birding.

We returned to Santa Ana in hopes of finding the Hook-billed Kite.

We didn’t find the Kite..we did see lots of other birds..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_101

For the second time in two days we saw the Groove-billed Ani..

An couple from Great Britain had noticed one as it went for a drink in the dike..

This bird from a distance could be mistaken for a Great-tailed Grackle..

I wonder how many I have missed…jeffs ani_001

We were lucky to see not only one..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_012But , two…how exciting…

santa ana and quinta matzatlan_032I don’t know why this one was fanning its wings…I think it may have been trying to dry them after taking a dip..or maybe it was some mating dance…

We had fun watching both birds for over a half hour…santa ana and quinta matzatlan_042  I wanted to visit Quinta Mazatlan in McAllen.

Christopher from Picusblog suggested we visit…Thanks Christopher!

What a great little park in the middle of town.santa ana and quinta matzatlan_013

Garden Gate..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_014 Green Jay tiles on either side of the gate..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_010  We followed the trails…a small but very nice park..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_020Feeding stations set up in many areas of the garden..

Lots of nice water features as well..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_004

While sitting and watching birds near the feeders…we heard some squawking..

I found the birds..

Green Parakeets…Life Birds..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_051They looked like a very nice couple…cuddling  santa ana and quinta matzatlan_070and kissing..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_068 On our way out of the park, I stopped to look at a Golden-fronted woodpecker..

Jeff said is that an owl? I looked at the tree and thought it was just part of the tree …

not an owl…

santa ana and quinta matzatlan_096 Until I looked at it with my binos..santa ana and quinta matzatlan_098

And saw that it indeed, was an owl

We took the tram to the Hawk watching platform..

santa ana and benston_028 We were immediately treated to hundreds, if not thousands of hawks soaring by in kettles..Very distant views..

Can you see the dots??

There were streams of these kettles coming from Mexico heading north..it was around 3:30 till about 4:30 and then we didn’t see as many kettles..

There were hundreds of Mississippi Kites throughout the afternoon circling in kettles..

Valley Birding, Texas

Howdee all,

Today Jeff and I started our morning birding at La Feria sod farms..our target birds were Bairds and Buff-breasted sandpipers…We saw lots of Upland sandpipers..but not our target birds..

From here we went to Valley Nature Center in Weslaco. We heard that someone had seen a Gold winged warbler a few days ago so we thought we would have a look.

When we arrived I heard some squawking..and found this cutie hiding behind the tree..

Padre Island, more fallout birding

Howdee all,

Another great day of birding on Padre Island..

We arrived on the island and went directly to Sheepshead Road..

Where I immediately saw a beautiful Life bird….Cerulean Warbler..Jeff was able to get some good looks as well before it flew off…No photo of the purdy birdie, others there were able to see and photograph it.

We saw a good number of birds here..warblers, vireos, Tanagers, Orioles..etc

There are lots of Indigo Buntings around..

South Padre Island sunset..

Howdee all,

We have left Padre Island and are now in Mercedes, Texas..

We plan on traveling tomorrow, and hours drive, back to the Island in hopes of seeing some more migrants show up. 

This Great-tailed Grackle below is No migrant..padre island fall out_014

But, very amusing birds to watch..check out my previous post for some

Grackle attitude..padre island fall out_019

Jeff and I enjoyed birding the boardwalk at the Birding center, on Padre Island, in the evening..

padre island fall out_015

        Nice lighting..

padre island fall out_040

  and fun to take photos in this evening light..

padre island fall out_022

I prefer skies with clouds..padre island fall out_024

Rather than all blue skies…padre island fall out_028

  So..back to the Island we go…

Wishing for some migrating birds for viewing..and maybe a few clouds to take photos of..

Padre Island birding, Migration Fallout

Howdee all,

Its that time of year…the birds are starting their migration north.

While on Padre Island we had a day of strong north winds…

Which would make it difficult for migrating birds to continue their northward journey…they tire and land when they can..

Padre Island is one of the first places for the birds to land..or fall out.

There are two places that the birders go to look for a fall out.

Sheepshead road…

There are two lots across the street from each other..

Fallout birding Padre_001A bird retreat…nice patch of green with a few water drip areas,

Hummingbird feeders, and oranges set out occasionally.Fallout birding Padre_002The other area is at the Convention center..

Its primary concern was fuel…fallout birds padre island_047Prothonatary warblerfallout birds padre island_042 Black and white warblerfallout birds padre island_057

Black-vented Oriole..see the vent?fallout birds padre island_075A very rare visitor..fallout birds padre island_100 This was one of a hand full of times it has been seen in the USA.

We were at the right place at the right time …

We were thrilled, as were many other birders who were able be there during the four or so hour time frame it was seen…fallout birds padre island_102  Thanks to Scarlet Colley (Dolphinwhisper on facebook) for discovering the bird and alerting other birders. Thanks to Huck Hutchins for letting Jeff and I know of the sighting as we were birding Sheepshead road.
