Birds seen/heard in Douglas Park on Saturday, October 21, 2017 (4:20 hours, early to late morning)

Number of identified species this visit:  40

Mostly clear, then becoming overcast, with some clearing at the end; breezy (from the southwest); lower to upper 60s. I parked in the Cultural Center lot, walked around north and southeast lagoons, then walked the east half of the sanctuary, south of Ogden, and the west half of the sanctuary. There were still puddles on the soccer fields and the Lily Pond was still far outside its banks. The sanctuary had 23 bird species, south of Ogden 19 species, and the rest of the park 29 species.

Canada Goose  650     I counted 310 north of Ogden (by 5s, mostly on north lagoon), and then watched more than 310 fly north from the soccer fields (in three large flocks, counted by 10s). 23 remained south of Ogden. I only saw about half the goose necks cleared and maybe 10% of the legs (which were often in grass that had not been mowed recently. That’s probably why I only found one marker: Leg C120.

Mallard  25     All resting among vegetation on the Lily Pond (so I may have missed some of them).

duck sp.  1     The white Mallard-sized duck was still with Mallards on the Lily Pond.

Pied-billed Grebe  2     On the sanctuary lagoon

Great Blue Heron  1     At the edges of north lagoon

Black-crowned Night-Heron  1     Immature perched at the north edge of the island.

Northern Harrier  1     I got a couple of looks at this juvenile as it circled over the sanctuary. (This is the first eBird record for this species for Douglas Park.)

Red-tailed Hawk  1     Flew low over north lagoon, could not see tail

Killdeer  5     Flock flew south over Ogden, with one calling) and landed on the soggier part of the soccer field.

Pectoral Sandpiper  1     Spotted with the Killdeer on the soccer field (not sure if it flew in with them).

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker  1     Called from the young elm in the sanctuary.

Downy Woodpecker  2

Northern Flicker  3

American Kestrel  1     Initially seen soaring and hovering (wind aided) south of Ogden, where it freaked out the many birds and was harassed briefly by a crow. Later heard calls north of Ogden and saw a male kestrel in a treetop in the sanctuary. (The harrier was probably over the sanctuary at this point, and the kestrel may have been harassing it.)

American Crow  8     One harassed the kestrel south of Ogden.

Black-capped Chickadee  5     Two sang.

Brown Creeper  1     South of Ogden

Winter Wren  1     At the edge of north lagoon

Golden-crowned Kinglet  3

Ruby-crowned Kinglet  9

Hermit Thrush  3

American Robin  65     All but a few were south of Ogden, especially at the edges of the LiIy Pond fluddle and in nearby hawthorns. At least 3 sang.

European Starling  45     Almost all south of Ogden. The largest flock in flight was about 40, but I could still hear some calling in treetops.

Cedar Waxwing  22     South of Ogden. A flock gathered in bare branches next to a tree filled with bright red fruit.

Orange-crowned Warbler  13     In meadow strips and patches.

Palm Warbler  8

Yellow-rumped Warbler  7

warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.)  2

Chipping Sparrow  1     With the large junco flock

Fox Sparrow  4

Dark-eyed Junco  50     Almost all in one large, spread-out flock on the lawn south of southeast lagoon (plus a lone junco seen south of Ogden).

White-crowned Sparrow  45     At least 2 sang (but not complete songs).

White-throated Sparrow  60     One sang an incomplete song.

Savannah Sparrow  1     With the large junco flock

Song Sparrow  7

Swamp Sparrow  29     In meadow/prairie strips and patches, especially at the edge of the lagoons.

sparrow sp.  17

Northern Cardinal  4

Red-winged Blackbird  1     Sang from the south side of the sanctuary.

House Finch  3     Foraged on the ground near the Flower Pavilion.

Pine Siskin  3     All heard calling in flight around the bridge area.

American Goldfinch  25     Flocks of 14 and 8 in the sanctuary meadow/prairie patches

House Sparrow  3

passerine sp.  7
