[FlaBirding] Bird fishing with bait or lure - michel.reglade - 2014-04-05 16:36:53


Hi,

The bait fishing behavior is considered as rare.
For an example, see this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntOmfO_sHjQ

I'm a french ornithologist and I'm trying to collect available observations of this behavior in birds.
In particular, I'm looking for observations of bait fishing Green Herons.

My purpose is to better estimate the frequency of this behavior.

If you have personnaly observed or know somebody who have observed such a behavior, could you get in touch with me in private?

Thank you by advance for your help.
Best regards,

Michel Antoine Réglade
(Toulouse, France).

[FlaBirding] Cassin's Kingbird still present [1 Attachment] - Larry Manfredi - 2014-03-22 19:27:40


--CwUW2C7FDLVT-IAwQOUbt2APuOXHK7rHGWcTKtU Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit The Cassin's Kingbird was present this afternoon and perhaps in the morning but I did not check. I took this photograph about 4:00 p.m. today. The kingbird/flycatcher flock has grown! I have now counted at the roost area, 27-Western Kingbird, 1-Cassin's Kingbird and 7-Scissor-tailed Flycatcher including a long tailed bird. Birders are welcomed to come by to try their luck, my address: 20313 s.w. 322 st. Homestead. Park on the grass left of my driveway, there is no need to knock. The best times again are from about 7:30 a.m. to about 8:30 a.m. and then again from about 4:00/4:30 p.m. to about 5:00/5:30 p.m. This would be at my house. The roost area located on s.w. 328 st. which is a dirt road, it is 2/10 of a mile west of s.w. 202 ave. on s.w. 328 st. This is below the high wires next to a tomato field. The birds roost in a clump of Bamboo south of s.w. 328 st. They start arriving here around 5:30 p.m. and go to roost about 7:00 p.m. Larry Manfredi --CwUW2C7FDLVT-IAwQOUbt2APuOXHK7rHGWcTKtU Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

[FlaBirding] BAHAMA MOCKINGBIRD: R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve (Miami-Dade) [3 Attachments] - rd4birds - 2014-03-20 12:50:57


------=_NextPart_001_001A_01CF4443.6BB538D0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable An adult Bahama Mockingbird today (3/20) in R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve in South Miami. Observer: Robin Diaz. The bird was along the trail, .25 miles east from the entrance gate. Parking is a problem and the closest place is a dirt pull-off, south of the canal. Care should be taken when walking north across the bridge. Follow US 1 south from the terminus of I-95 and turn south (left) onto Le Jeune Road in Coral Gables. Continue south and at the traffic circle, make the second right turn onto Old Cutler Road. Continue south, past Matheson Hammock County Park and Fairchild Tropical Gardens. R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve will be on the east (left) side of Old Cutler Road. Cross the bridge and look for a safe pull-off. Walk back north and enter the preserve on the north side of the canal. ------=_NextPart_001_001A_01CF4443.6BB538D0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

[FlaBirding] Cassin's Kingbird, Homestead Miami/Dade County - Larry Manfredi - 2014-03-17 18:40:03


I found a Cassin's Kingbird in my yard in Homestead, boy who would have 
thought to get such a good bird for a yard bird!  It has been hanging 
out with at least 24-Western Kingbirds and a couple of Scissor-tailed 
Flycatchers.  Birders are welcomed to come by and try for the bird.
Our address is: 20313 s.w. 322 st. Homestead
The bird seems to be easiest to find from about 7:30-8:30 a.m. and then 
from about 4:30-5:30 p.m. We saw it this morning but it was pretty far 
north of our house in an area that I can't explain how to get to.  If 
you come by, park on the grass left of my driveway. If you look at the 
front of my house, walk to the street on your left and walk north. There 
are some fruiting Gumbo Limbo trees next to the street along the west 
side of my property. The birds have been seen in this area, please be 
respectful of my neighbors!  You don't have to knock on my door, just 
start looking!

A new bunch of birds added to my resident birds today. The newer Gold Finches have more breeding plumage. Lot more of them too. While enjoying my morning getting photos of some Gold Finches and Sparrows something much larger busted into the oaks and feathers flew everywhere. I could not see the predator but it killed a Morning Dove. For the last few days there has been a Sharp-shinned harassing the little birds. The day I thought all the birds left here migrating north, they didn't leave they were hiding from the Sharp-shinned Hawks. Getting off my stool and crawling around until I found the predator. I could not believe my eyes. For 5 years I have been seeing light phased Short-tailed hawks on the property. Every time there was one in view no camera in reach. I know they nest here; some think it too far north, it's not. Today was my day. A large probably a female Short-tailed was about 25 meters away from me with a dove in its grip and I had my Digiscoping kit in hand or should say at my feet. They are very secretive and it was very difficult to get a clean shot. I know it had seen me and knew I was there. My movements were at a snail's pace. If it wasn't for my Yoga practice I could not have moved like I moved. I filled a 16 gig card with stills and videos. When the card was full I went back and deleted some images to make room. She would look at me once and a while but just kept eating. I was done it was 2 PM EDT I was hungry and had hundreds of images. I shut down and was concerned that I would freak her out and she would fly away so I creped to the back porch.

Hello Florida Birders,
I
am a friend of Boston birder Dorian Anderson who is doing a Big Year on 
his
bike while trying to raise funds to protect wild birds and their 
habitats.
Dorian calls his quest "Biking for Birds" and his partners include the 
ABA and The Conservation Fund. Two Florida conservation properties that 
will receive direct fundraising from The Conservation Fund thru Dorian's
 "Biking for Birds" fund are the 685-acre Kanapaha Prairie property and 
the 1,321-acre Johnson Tract in Sugarloaf Key.Dorian
 is expected to reach Florida in 3 to 4 weeks, and expects to spend at 
least 3 weeks in Florida. Margaret England, President Hendry-Glades 
Audubon FL has been a good friend to us, and to the extent humanly 
possible, has agreed to help Dorian while he's in your Stat If you'd like to learn more, please read below. Thank you Florida Birders.


(Florida) Biking for Birds: onward
to the Orange State"Biking for Birds,” a year-long environmental odyssey aimed at protecting
wild birds and their habitats, is headed for the Orange state. 


During this twelve-month
endeavor,  which commenced January 1 from Salisbury, Massachusetts,
geneticist Dr. Dorian Anderson, a Philadelphia native, hopes to see and
photograph 600 species of birds while pedaling his bike 15,000 miles across the
country. To further eliminate a carbon footprint during his travels, Dorian
will not have a support vehicle to assist him. 100 percent of all donations
raised will go to The Conservation Fund (80%) and The American Birding
Association (20%). 

Dorian reached New York City on
Saturday January 18, and despite being thrown head over heels from his bike in
New Jersey on January 21, Dorian arrived in his hometown Philadelphia January
21. Dorian is now headed south and expects to spend a month in Florida,
searching for its fantastic resident birds. He is expected to reach
Jacksonville late February or early March.

Despite a number of winter storms,
Dorian pedaled more than 455 miles through 4 New England states by January 17.
In just 25 days, he’s already found more than 120 species of birds,
photographing many along the way. His photography can be seen at
“dorianandersonphotography.com”.

Dorian expects to spend 3 months (March,
April and May) in coastal communities from Florida to Texas before turning
north into bird-rich Arizona. Dorian should reach the California coast by
September, and come December, should conclude his Big Year in the mid-west.

Those who wish to donate or follow
Dorian’s epic adventure should visit "bikingforbirds.blogspot.com".
In less than 4 weeks, 38,000 visitors have looked at his site.Dorian's Press Releases have also been sent thru the Associated Press Newswire Service to newspapers throughout Florida.
http://www.gloucestertimes.com/local/x12765135/Birding-biking-expedition-starting-from-Cape-Ann                                             

An Online International News Site also picked up the Jan.3 USA Today
