Birds seen/heard in south Oak Park on Monday, May 15, 2016, 2:40 hours (mid to late morning)

Number of identified species: 28

Mostly sunny but with a thin, high overcast, mid to upper 60s. I walked the Rehm Park-Lexington-Maple Park-Fillmore route, with a side trip up Wisconsin-Wenonah but just in the alley at Carroll Park (because the preschool was out on the lawn and playground). Also, I started a bit late (because of going to Taylor Park early), and there were a mower, leaf blower, and trimmer active in Rehm Park, and a mower in the south part of Maple Park. Rehm Park had only 6 bird species, Maple Park 9 species, and Carroll Park 6 species.

A property owner near Fillmore and Maple said he briefly saw a large hummingbird and a yellow oriole exploring his feeders.

Great Blue Heron  1     Flew slowly to the southeast about 100 feet above Maple Park.

Ring-billed Gull  1

Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)  X     One along the highway

Mourning Dove  1     Called along Lexington (2 blocks west of Rehm).

Chimney Swift  16     I heard them all along my route. The largest flock was 4 at once. My count assumes they were not following me around.

Red-bellied Woodpecker  1     Male at the north end of Maple Park.

Downy Woodpecker  1

Blue Jay  1     Called near the east end of my Fillmore route.

White-breasted Nuthatch  2     One called at Wenonah and Lexington, and the other called along Wenonha a half block south of Harvard.

House Wren  4     One sang just east of Maple Park, between Lexington and Harvard. Three had a sing-off with some chasing around the gourd at the house on the NW corner of Wisconsin and Fillmore (almost ignoring me). A minute or two latter I heard one sing at a gourd a half block east of that, but I’ll assume it was one of the three.

Swainson’s Thrush  1     Flushed from tree to tree by a trimmer in Rehm Park.

American Robin  60     At least 14 sang. I saw my first robin fledgling of the year under a bush at the church at Fillmore and Wisconsin.

European Starling  6

Black-and-white Warbler  1     Male on the trunk of a honey locust in Maple Park.

Nashville Warbler  1     Sang.

Common Yellowthroat  1     Sang from shrubs between tow houses on Elmwood, south of our block.

American Redstart  2     Both sang.

Northern Parula  1     Sang in an elm along Wisconsin.

Black-throated Green Warbler  1     In an elm at the church

warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.)  3

Chipping Sparrow  4     Sang at Rehm and Maple Parks, and 2 in the alley by Carroll Park.

White-crowned Sparrow  2     Two sang, at least two present with House Sparrows in the SW corner of Carroll Park.

Northern Cardinal  17     At least 14 sang.

Rose-breasted Grosbeak  1

Common Grackle  9

Brown-headed Cowbird  3     Heard calls, not songs.

House Finch  7     Seven sang.

American Goldfinch  8     Two sang.

House Sparrow  X     I saw an active nest under on eave.

passerine sp.  2

—- From older reports: Tuesday, October 27, 2009, late morning: I saw a Blue-headed Vireo in a Hackberry tree at the south edge of Carroll Park. Fortunately I had borrowed Aaron’s camera, so I got some for-the-record photos of the bird as it foraged in the tree above me:

This photo shows the bill (heavier than a warbler's), gray head, and white

This photo shows the Blue-headed Vireos bill (heavier than most warblers bills), white “spectacles,” gray head, and part of the double wing bars (the upper bar is kind of short).

This view, with the Blue-headed Vireo further away, shows a bit more of the gray head.

This view, with the Blue-headed Vireo further away, shows a bit more of the gray head and white “spectacles,” plus some of the yellowish color on the flanks.

Friday, October 23, 2009, late morning: Here are some photos of Eurasian Collared-Doves seen that day. There were several pairs of Collared-Doves in this count area during July and August, when I often heard them calling and saw some carrying nesting material. Then they disappeared for almost two months until I saw them on the 23rd.

Four Eurasian Collared-Doves on wires, with three smaller and draker Mourning Doves for comparison.

Here's a closer view of two of the doves.

Saturday, September 19, 2009, 2:00 p.m.: Ethan and Aaron saw a female Northern Harrier near Oak Park Ave. over the highway, as they were driving the Grandma’s with their Mom. Friday, September 11, 2009, 3:45 p.m.: While walking home from school, Aaron and his friend Matt saw a Cooper’s Hawk catch a Pigeon at the Ridgeland/I-290 bridge. Wednesday, June 3. I stopped by the Cooper’s Hawk nest and didn’t see any birds on the nest. A neighbor said he had not seen any sign of the hawks for 2 weeks. However, I did her a single “kek” call from a tree 150 feet south that probably was from a Cooper’s Hawk. Tuesday, May 26, and Thursday, May 28: I stopped by the Cooper’s Hawk nest for a few minutes on both days, but I did not see or hear any hawks — adults or babies. Thursday, April 23, 2009: Here’s a photo and close-up of the Cooper’s Hawk was on a nest (saw the head and rounded tail). Here are two photos:

Wednesday, April 15, 2009:

A Eurasian Collared-Dove was in a backyard near Fillmore and Gunderson. It was both a year bird and a Bigby bird for me, so I included a photo as documentation (see below).
