RECENT VISIT

This is a report of Eric’s monitoring visit to Columbus Park on Monday, February 20, 2017, 3:24 hours (early to mid morning).

Number of identified species: 21

High thin clouds with a bit of a breeze, low 50s to mid 60s. I walked around the lagoon and then counterclockwise around the golf course, mostly outside the fence but with side trips into Austin woods, around golf course central woods, and around Interstate pond. (There were at least a dozen golfers on the course, curtailing my access to the inner edges of the surrounding woods.) The lagoon ice had all melted and the water level was about 2 inches below the base of the concrete pier. The golf course and lawns were dry.

I heard a coyote call once from the west side of central woods.

Canada Goose  62     Initially there were 5 on the lagoon and 28 on the lawn along Central Ave. 29 flew in, mostly from the south, in “flocks” of 2 to 11 geese.

Mallard  21     Fourteen on the lagoon and seven on Interstate pond

Cooper’s Hawk  2     One adult flying high, headed east over Central Ave. The other joined the Red-shouldered Hawk in Austin woods (see below for details).

Red-shouldered Hawk  1     Immature, probably the same as the one I saw twice earlier this year. Initially in the basswood by the Refectory, then flew and perched on the east side of the lagoon. Took off west from there, and then I saw it again in Austin woods, when it flew into the tree above my mob-call speaker. It was followed by an adult Cooper’s Hawk that landed on the same tree. The Red-shouldered displaced the Cooper’s from its perch within about 45 seconds, The Cooper’s landed in a nearby tree and started caling, and then the Red-shoulded flew towards and then past it, heading south.

Killdeer  1     At least one, maybe two circled over the park, giving two different calls while in flight. Some calling was pretty low over the west side of the golf course.

Ring-billed Gull  3     At least three, maybe a couple more, circling over the lagoon and landing at times.

Herring Gull  1     Circled over the lagoon (but I saw no winter-killed fish).

Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)  2     Lone flyovers

Downy Woodpecker  6     I saw a male-female pair and a male-male interaction

Merlin  1     It was perched in the open atop the dead ash tree by Refectory pond. Its presence did not seem to inhibit nearby Red-winged Blackbirds, which kept on singing.

American Crow  1     Called from east side of park.

Black-capped Chickadee  4     In Austin woods. I heard one three-note song (all descending) that was probably a chickadee variation.

American Robin  9     Scattered through the park on the ground and in trees. I’m not sure what they were eating.

European Starling  5

Dark-eyed Junco  14     Small flocks in trees west of the field house, by the Central Ave. playground, and in Austin woods. At least three were singing, plus there were other vocalizations.

Swamp Sparrow  2     Chips from two places in cattails of Interstate pond.

Northern Cardinal  13     Scattered through the park. At least two sang.

Red-winged Blackbird  20     All males, mostly around the lagoon and just west of Interstate pond. At least 10 sang (probably most of them sang at one point or another.)

Common Grackle  2     Two flew to southwest over Central Ave. playground, pausing briefly in trees.

blackbird sp.  2     Calling from brush, probably Red-winged, but not certain.

American Goldfinch  3     One was eating maple buds just south of the Refectory porch. As I remember, that is a sugar maple.

House Sparrow  19     At least a half dozen in the Refectory porch, the rest scattered along park edges and near field house.

OUR LIFE LIST FOR COLUMBUS PARK

This is a list of all the bird species we have seen at Columbus Park since we started birding there in April, 2007.

Some bird species are seen year round in the Park, like Cooper’s Hawk, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Black-capped Chickadees, and American Goldfinches. Some species come for the summer, like Green Herons, Red-eyed Vireos, and Gray Catbirds. A few species come to spend the winter, like Merlin and Dark-eyed Juncos. But most of the species on this list migrate through in spring or fall.

Total number of species we have seen to date in Columbus Park: 191

  1. Dave Says:

    Eric – Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I think I have seen your name over at IBET? Anyway, I look forward to seeing what you-all are seeing in our neighborhood! A couple years back I did a field trip at Columbus Park with the COS and was amazed at what was there. My skills are intermediate so it’s nice to have experts nearby to keep me on the rails!

    All the best-

    Dave

  2. Here’s the link to Dave’s blog post about Columbus Park birds: http://osagegroup.blogspot.com/2009/01/hawk-its-back-and-i-saw-it-again.html

    Dave’s referring (I think) to the “Underbirded Parks” trips that the Chicago Ornithological Society (COS) runs once or twice a year in Chicago’s westside parks (like Columbus and Douglas). You can check their field trip page to see what’s coming up this year: http://www.chicagobirder.org/field-trips.

    Eric – This is great information. Thanks for your diligent hard work and careful species lists.

  4. Jed Hertz Says:

    Congratulations on a fine display of birding data.

    Citizen Science at it’s best.

  5. Becki Streit Says:

    Beautiful site, guys–really amazing data! Went back to Columbus this afternoon after I talked to you all and saw a black-throated blue and several magnolias. What a fun day! Your list has inspired me to get to Columbus more often.
    Becki

  6. Ken Boyer Says:

    Eric and Aaron, I’ve been following your blog for the past 6 months or so and am just amazed at the amount of birdlife at Columbus Park. I’ve been commuting through there for the past 30 years and was completely oblivious. Thanks for what you are doing; I’ve added a bunch of birds to my “life list!” I did see a male red breasted merganser there a couple of weeks ago at the time you we seeing his “wife.” More to the point of this note: This morning (4/24/13 at 7 AM) there was a beautiful pair of northern shovellers paddling around in the flooded baseball field. Right up by the fence, so absolutely no doubt about it. . You should check them out (and add them to your personal Columbus list!) Thanks again for what you do. Ken Boyer (a fellow Oak Parker…kenneth_m_boyer@rush.edu.

    • Thanks, Ken!
      We saw the shovelers, too. Species number 187 for our Columbus Park list!
      Eric

      • Ken Boyer Says:

        Its been 5 months since this monumental observation of mine. Have had a few since, but nothing that you guys haven’t seen. Question for you: How the heck does one access the “Interstate pond?” I crawled though some pretty tangled swamp to try to get in there one afternoon–ultimately to no avail. Is there a secret pathway in there? Thanks. Keep up the good work. Ken B

      • Ken, Interstate pond is on the golf course, just west of the southwest corner of the newly rebuild ball fields. The golf course workers all know me, so they sort of look the other way when I walk around the pond. I walk through the tangle of weeds, vines, and fallen branches at the southwest corner of the pond (which covers my lower legs with spiny seeds this time of year). There is a small opening there before you get to the mowed grass. From there I peer through the trees at the edge of the pond until I’m certain there are no golfers at the tee on the east side of the pond. When the coast is clear, I walk to the north edge of the pond, where I can get a clear view of both the open water and the inner edges of the cattails. That’s where I saw the Sora from, two days ago. Of course, I’ve done that a couple of hundred times, and that was the first time I’ve seen a Sora at that location. Walking back I also take care to avoid all golfers.
        By the way, have you checked out eBird’s new Hotspot Explorer? They have a page that gives access to ALL the eBird data that birders have contributed for Columbus Park: http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L108479

  7. Ken Boyer Says:

    Thanks. I’ll try it. Previously I didn’t see your “small opening.” I’ll try Hotspot Explorer. What I usually do is look up something common on e-bird, which will get me to the “common bird species map of the US.” Then zoom in to Columbus Park. That will give me your lists as well as others. Yours, however, are by far the best!!! Ken B
