March 20th WATER CLOSET: "Ducks After Ice Out On Our Ponds"

Birders,

I hope you enjoy this issue of the Water Closet as much as I did:

Bring it on,
Sue

ALL ABOUT MIGRATION

Migrating birds
The word migration comes from the Latin word migratus, and it means “to change” geographic locations seasonally. Migration peaks in spring and fall. When birds migrate depends on many factors, including bird species, migration distance, travel speed, route and climate. Before migrating, many birds enter a state of hyperphagia, a change in hormone levels that causes them to put on fat to increase their body weight. This fat is energy for the trip. Some species may double their body weight prior to migration.

During the day, hawks, swifts, swallows and waterfowl migrate. Songbird species migrate at night to avoid the attention of migrating predators such as falcons and hawks. The calmer, cooler air at night can make their migration more efficient. The daytime migrants use the solar thermal currents to fuel them.

The nocturnal moving birds use the stars for navigation as well as wind patterns and landmasses to guide them to the same locations each year. The earth's magnetic field also plays a part in bird migration. Some passerines fly 15 - 600 miles in a day; some have stop overs for refueling.

Trans-oceanic migrants - ones whose route crosses an ocean – may be airborne up to 100 plus hours at a single time until they encounter land or a vessel. Long-range migratory birds have longer, more pointed wings than non-migratory species or birds with short migrations. The wing structure is more aerodynamic, allowing for an efficient flight.

Migrating birds travel at speeds ranging from 15 - 50 miles per hour. Flight pattern and prevailing winds can increase or decrease their speed. The round-trip migration of the Arctic Tern is roughly 22,000 miles - the longest recorded migration of any bird on the planet. They get no free upgrades or bonus travel points either...

Migrant birds face perils along the way, including window collisions, confusing lights that can disrupt their navigation [both of which I've mentioned in earlier updates] and predation along their routes. This year's youngsters are at great risk since they're inexperienced travelers. They can also face habitat loss upon arrival at their destinations.

Spring Tune Up Books

Common Raven by Margo Goetschkes
Bernd Heinrich, Mind of the Raven (1999).  Following Heinrich’s earlier work, Ravens in Winter (1989), this book summarizes what this indefatigable researcher has learned about one of the world’s most intelligent birds, whose learning abilities are mind-boggling. Heinrich is an excellent writer, and this book is hard to put down.

Harlequin Duck by Jeremiah Trimble
Christopher Leahy, The Birdwatcher’s Companion to North American Birdlife (2nd ed., 2004). Chris’s first Birdwatcher’s Companion came out in 1982 and was popular enough to warrant a second edition. This is an ornithological encyclopedia with answers to just about any bird-related question, written with style and humor by a Gloucester native and long-time Mass Audubon biologist and ecologist.

Hermit Thrush by Nancy Smith
Donald Kroodsma, The Singing Life of Birds (2005). The definitive work on the study and interpretation of North American bird songs, written with a remarkable combination of scholarship and outright wonder. The author analyzes the songs of a sample of species in detail, preferring depth over breadth and inspiring the reader with his insights. The Hermit Thrush chapter is worth its weight in gold.

Black-capped Chickadee by Nathan Dubrow
Don and Lillian Stokes, A Guide to Bird Behavior, Vols. 1, 2, and 3 (1979, 1983, 1989). The Stokeses live in southern New Hampshire and have long studied and written about bird behavior, among many other subjects. Their goal is public education about birds and wildlife. These three volumes interpret vocalizations, displays, and other behaviors of common eastern birds and are written without jargon for the amateur birdwatcher.

Brant

Brant by Nathan Dubrow

Brant
The unfinished business of summer,
then autumn brief with heavy rains.
Now comes November.
This gray morning, ten am on a work day.
A gale sixty miles offshore and a full moon tide 
have connived to overfill the harbor.
Surge strikes the seawall like a leaden bell 
and buries the beach I came to walk.
A flock of brant have come in with the weather,
compact and muscular
sleek black heads and necks at a forward tilt
pure intention.
Separated from what they want
the tender eelgrass down among the mussel beds
by a good fifteen feet of cold water 
churned with sand.
How arbitrary it all is. Tides, storms, seasons…
Maybe the brant are just waiting it out.
Maybe they’re using those webbed feet of theirs, 
pushing the water out of the harbor as fast as they can.
Either way, the blue-black backs of the mussel beds 
will rise in six hours
and the eelgrass will be theirs for the taking.

Birders,

Due to the freezing rain forecast for tomorrow,  the Signs of Spring on Parker River NWR is cancelled.

Next Scheduled Program:

Sunset Birding at Salisbury Beach State Reservation
Date: Sunday, March 29, 2015
Time: 3:30 pm to sunset
Fee: $20
Meeting Location: At the boat ramp parking lot at Salisbury Beach State Reservation 
Wintering waterfowl are abundant at Salisbury Beach State Reservation. Common Eiders and all three scoter species are often in rafts. Loons and grebes are easily observed. Purple Sandpipers gather on the jetties at high tide; Iceland and Glaucous Gulls can also be seen. We'll search the campground area, a prime area for Horned Larks, Lapland Longspurs and Snow Buntings.  The pines along the marsh edge are great for harboring wintering owls.  At low tide on Badger's Rocks, we usually see Harbor Seals hauled out.


With best wishes,
Sue
