[FlaBirding] Deformed Beak Palm Warblers - Tom Palmer (email address filtered) [FlaBirding] - 2015-03-05 07:26:16


Dear All,Someone sent me photos recently she said were taken in Polk County that depicted Palm Warblers with deformed beaks. I have read about problems recently with other species, but wasn't sure if the problem, if there is one, is affecting more species. Tom Palmer

     Hello all,A visiting birder from California here on Day 2 of my eastern adventure!
I visited Jenkins Creek Park (and Linda across the road) yesterday evening for my first Florida birding outing and encountered a small blackbird with the grackles along the fishing pier. To me it looked like a classic Brewer's blackbird, though I've been advised they are very rare in Florida so it probably isn't one. 
Either way, putting it out there. I suppose rusty would be more likely but I'm sure it lacks the critical features for that species. Would also be incredibly improbable to find a rarity on day 1 but it wouldn't be the first time...
Some quick photos for consideration, it flew off quickly so no more I'm afraid.

[FlaBirding] Female Ruddy Duck at Viera Wetlands - (email address filtered)' (email address filtered) [FlaBirding] - 2015-01-03 15:27:58


Happy New Year all!

This afternoon I decided to check out the Viera Wetlands, aka Ritch  
Grissom Memorial Wetlands, and was not disappointed.  Wound up with  
32 species and a definite highlight was coming across a female RUDDY  
DUCK near the NW corner of Cell 3.  This is at the far end of the  
first, long straightaway, turn the corner, and turn left down between  
the cells.  The Ruddy was on the right, 20-30 ft down I guess (before  
the bench) where there is a bit less vegetation, and there were a few  
Common Gallinules or Coots nearby.

As long as you're driving along that southern straightaway, look for  
an area of lower grass height after the 1st road to the left, and  
just before there are several small groupings of palm snags. I found  
about 20 WILSON'S SNIPE in an area the size of a good-sized living  
room!  And they were out where they were well visible too.  I had  
stopped to look at a few waders and noticed a snipe, then another and  
started counting.  Further on are several flocks of Ring-necked  
ducks, and yes, coots... lots and lots of coots.

roughly across the road from the Ruddy Duck, were a handful of Hooded  
Mergansers.  Other ducks seen were 3 female N. Shovelers and a  
scattering of Blue-winged Teal.

Had a lone Limpkin in the vegetation on the SW corner of Cell 3 as I  
went around the 2nd time to get the outside of the complex.   
Otherwise pretty much the usual suspects.

Quite a few Sandhill Cranes in the sod fields; but no Caracara today.

As you leave the area, just north on Stadium Rd/Pkw there is a pond  
with several White Pelicans, lots of cormorants and wading birds.  Be  
aware there is no good place to pull off, but you can get decent  
views of the pond from the road just south of it.

Hi all,
My family and I are at Orlando at a conference, and intent to spend Sunday evening and Monday on the Coast either north or south of Cape Canaveral. Please, where would you recommend for good summer birding near there?
