RECENT VISIT

Birds seen/heard in Columbus Park on Sunday, July 12, 2020, 3:16 hours (early morning until mid morning)

Number of identified species this visit:  30

Mostly cloudy to mostly sunny then almost overcast, breeze developing from the northeast then strengthening and becoming more easterly, upper 60s rising to lower 80s and then falling to upper 70s as the breeze picked up. I parked in the south lot and covered my usual route in this order: the parking lots edges, west side of the lagoon, and the peninsula, then checked the phoebe nest and walked clockwise around the golf course outside fence. I continued east of Jackson to Central, zig-zagged south and around the pool, then returned to my car. The lawns were pretty dry, but there was more water in the perimeter path puddle. The waterfalls were still not running, and the lagoon level was about a foot below the top of the concrete pad. I found no sign of Yellow Warbler and no swallows, but I had good evidence of successful breeding for a couple more species.

There was a mob of robins, Red-winged Blackbirds, grackles, and cowbirds giving something a hard time at Interstate pond, but I was blocked by foliage and could not tell what it was, even when it apparently flew off.

I did not see any Monarchs, but the chipmunks were still active in lagoon woods and a few other places.

Canada Goose  15     At one point they were all on the concrete pad.

Wood Duck  14     Two of the females had ducklings with them, one a week or so old and the other about two-thirds grown.

Mallard  21     All on the lagoon, in various plumages (but no breeding males).

Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)  9     Flew over in groups of 2, 3, and 4.

Chimney Swift  11     There were only 3 or 4 flying low over the lagoon, but there was usually at least one overhead elsewhere.

Spotted Sandpiper  1     Adult on the concrete pad.

Ring-billed Gull  12     When I arrived there were 11 on the concrete pad and one over the lagoon (all adults).

Double-crested Cormorant  1     Adult swimming on the lagoon.

Black-crowned Night-Heron  1     Adult, at the edge of the lagoon.

Downy Woodpecker  3     Two on the peninsula and one along Jackson.

Northern Flicker  4     Calling and foraging in four different spots, including one that flew north from Interstate pond. (I tried to find fledglings, but did not succeed.)

Eastern Wood-Pewee  1     Called in Austin woods. (First in the park in several weeks.)

Eastern Phoebe  3     I saw at least one adult, and there were two fuzzy nestlings in the south nest.

Eastern Kingbird  4     Calling by the parking lot and lagoon, and also two in the honey locust grove (a new spot).

Warbling Vireo  8     Five sang in some of the usual spots, and three were calling a higher-pitched-than-usual call on the peninsula (maybe fledglings?).

Red-eyed Vireo  3     All three sang in Austin woods, one just south of Harrison Street and two north of Van Buren.

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher  4     One called in lagoon woods and one called on the peninsula. I saw one with a small insect in its beak put the bug into an open beak of another at the south end of lagoon woods.

House Wren  1     Sang briefly in Austin woods at about Van Buren.

European Starling  60     At one point there were at least 30 in dead ash trees around Interstate ponds. Elsewhere they were in both single-species and mixed flocks, in treetops and on lawns. Still many in juvenile plumage.

Gray Catbird  3     All three were mewing at places where catbirds were singing a week or two ago.

American Robin  60     Only two sang, but I saw one carrying food.

Cedar Waxwing  7     One called in peninsula prairie, and a tight flock of at least six flew east over lagoon woods.

House Sparrow  8     Two were visiting a potential nest site in a swimming pool light fixture.

American Goldfinch  10     Two sang, and there was a pair in a sow thistle that had a couple of flower heads in seed, but I could not see if they had grabbed some fluff.

Song Sparrow  5     Still singing at five of the usual spots.

Red-winged Blackbird  60     Eight sang, and there were agitated adults at a couple of spots, but no dive bombing (and no agitation by lagoon woods).

Brown-headed Cowbird  9     There were at least two fledglings, but their foster parents were not in sight.

Common Grackle  4     All were in mixed flocks of robins and other blackbirds.

Northern Cardinal  7     Three sang, and chipping adult male and fledgling were together in Austin woods.

Indigo Bunting  3     A male and a female/immature were chipping at me in Austin woods near the third tee, and a male was singing atop a dead tree in central woods (again).

passerine sp.  8     Included fast flybys, distant birds in treetops, and some unfamiliar fledgling calls.

10 thoughts on “Our eBird data for Columbus Park, Chicago

  1. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

      1. 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

      2. 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

  6. 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
