    Rodrigues Warbler Acrocephalus rodericanus by Dave A. Showler, from Bulletin of the African Bird Club, volume 9.1, March 2002. La Rousserolle de Rodrigues Acrocepbalus rodericanus , espèce menacée, est endémique à Rodrigues, une des îles formant l'archipel des Mascareignes, situeé dans le sud de l'Océan Indien. On juvénile, observé pendant qu'il était nourri par un adulte, le 30 avril 1999, était estimé avoir quitté le nid moins de cinq jours auparavant. Ceci est de 6 à 8 semaines plus tard que les dates d'envol constatées auparavant. Il est possible que la saison de nidification soit plus tardive pendant certaines années ou qu'il y ait plus d'une nidification par an, selon les conditions météorologiques ou l'abondance de nourriture. The Endangered Rodrigues Warbler Acrocepbalus rodericanus is endemic to the Indian Ocean island of Rodrigues. A juvenile Rodrigues Warbler observed being fed by an adult in woodland at St Gabriel (central Rodrigues), on 30 April 1999, was estimated to be fewer than five days out of the nest. Its bill length was approximately three-quarters that of the adult feeding it, it had obvious gape flanges, some down on the lower throat and the tail was c25 mm long. This is 6-8 weeks later than any previously observed fledging date. The fledging period of Rodrigues Warbler is unknown, but is probably c14 days [l]. The fledging period of its slightly larger congener, Seychelles Warbler

    166. Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
    Photo of female at nest, sound file, and facts about this bird's physical traits and breeding range.
    Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
    Sphyrapicus varius Cool fact: The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker has one of the most distinctive and easily recognized drumming patterns of all woodpeckers. Upon returning to their breeding grounds in the spring, both males and females announce their presence with staccato drum rolls typically preceded by a couple of clearly separated taps, and ending with five or six disconnected taps: tap, tap, trrrrrrrrrrt, tap, tap, tap, tap-tap
    Listen to a recording of a
    Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
    from the Library of Natural Sounds: Yellow-bellied Sapsucker The four species of sapsuckers all drill small sap wells in regularly spaced rows or columns on tree trunks. They eat the exposed inner bark and cambium and drink the sugary sap that flows from these pits. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers have been found to tap over 250 species of trees and vines. Sap composes up to 20 percent of their diet and is especially important in late summer and autumn, or any time when other food sources are scarce. During the breeding season, they forage in the manner of typical woodpeckers, flaking off bark chips or excavating insects in dead wood. They also sally from perches to catch flying insects in the manner of flycatchers. In early spring, buds are eaten, and from October to February, fruit and berries are significant. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers can be found breeding across Canada east of the Rockies to southern Labrador and Newfoundland south to the northern United States from North Dakota to New York and Connecticut and south through the Appalachians to northwest Georgia. During winter, these migratory woodpeckers are common only where the temperatures seldom fall below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Almost all leave the summer range and winter in the southeastern United States, the West Indies, and in the middle and high altitudes of Central America as far south as Panama. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers are among the most highly migratory woodpeckers, and the only northern woodpecker to winter so far south.

History

    Many North American birders have been involved in Breeding Bird Atlases over the past 20 years. Using a grid-based system (latitude/longitude or UTM), Breeding Bird Atlases have documented the breeding status of the full variety of species found in a state, province, or county. Atlas projects have been very successful in documenting the breeding avifauna of poorly known areas and in discovering unknown breeding populations of otherwise well-known species. Birders have greatly enjoyed their participation in atlas projects. Many birders have learned new things about the breeding habitats and breeding behaviors of birds they thought they knew well. Many areas are now considering whether to re-do their atlases. If they do, they are almost certain to find a variety of changes, even over just a 10- or 20-year period.

    ILLINOIS BREEDING BIRD ATLAS MAPS WHAT IS THE ILLINOIS BREEDING BIRD ATLAS (IBBA) PROJECT? The IBBA Project was conducted to document the current status and distribution of the species of birds that breed in Illinois. Hundreds of volunteers under the direction of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and birding organizations in the state conducted censuses during 1986-1991 following standardized methodology. One-sixth of a 7.5-minute quadrangle (average area approximately nine square miles) served as a sample unit or atlas block with the west-central block chosen as the priority block. There are 6,148 blocks in the state. Three levels of breeding status are depicted on the distribution maps- confirmed (as evidenced by occupied nest, fledged young, used nest, distraction display, etc.), probable (agitated behavior, probable nest site, courtship behavior, etc.) and possible (singing male in suitable nesting habitat, presence in suitable nesting habitat).
    DISTRIBUTION MAPS The distribution maps presented here include all sampled atlas blocks (i.e. priority and non-priority blocks). Since the data is currently undergoing review, these maps are draft maps and subject to revision.

    Oregon Breeding Bird Atlas With pleasure we announce the release of the CD-ROM for the Oregon Breeding Bird Atlas Project. This CD is the culmination of 8 years of diligent efforts by many of you who participated in the 5-year project, the largest wildlife survey in Oregon's history. We are hoping this CD represents a milestone in Oregon ornithology and an innovative way of communicating biodiversity data.Here's why you should purchase the CD:
  • All the profits will support research on distribution of Oregon birds, under a small grants program administered by Oregon Field Ornithologists (OFO), your statewide birders organization. The easy-to-use CD contains many times the amount of cross-referenced information and detailed illustrations than could be published in a book of comparable cost. The CD is the sole product of the project. Most of the information will not be published, at least in the near term, in book format. The interactive CD includes:
      Color maps of 275 species believed to nest in Oregon, at 3 map scales. These are the largest detailed maps of Oregon species distributions available from any source. At the finest scale, many roads and streams are also shown. Roads covered by project volunteers are highlighted.

    New colony of Europe’s rarest breeding bird discovered
    A new colony of Europe’s rarest breeding bird, Zino’s Petrel Pterodroma madeira, has been found in the central mountains of the island of Madeira, Portugal. The colony, with 20 chicks and at least 9 occupied nests, is also the largest-known for this Critically Endangered bird, which was previously thought to number only 20-30 pairs. The colony was discovered in the Pico do Areeiro area of the Madeira Natural Park by the park authorities who have now closed off access to the breeding site until the exact size of the colony and potential risks from visitors are assessed. The site is located quite a distance from the only other three previously known colonies, all on inaccessible mountain ledges. "This recent discovery reinforces the importance of the IBA for the conservation of this highly threatened species and moreover, it shows that more research is needed to protect the breeding grounds of the species."

    The Virginia Society of Ornithology’s 33 rd annual breeding bird foray was conducted in Bath and Highland Counties, June 715, 2003. Bird Foray 03/Breeding Bird Foray
    John Spahr The Virginia Society of Ornithology’s 33 rd annual breeding bird foray was conducted in Bath and Highland Counties, June 7-15, 2003. Sixty-five birders from all across the state helped survey these two adjacent rural counties known for their lush river valleys and forested high elevation mountains. It rained essentially the entire first day as a dozen undaunted teams fanned out over the lower and middle elevations of Highland County. They returned for that evening’s tally at the Highland Inn in good spirits and with reports of some great birds, including a pair Dickcissels located by YuLee Larner, veteran of all three previous forays to these counties. One special aspect of this foray was the enthusiastic welcome we received from many local residents that was coordinated by members of the recently formed Bath-Highland Bird Club. These folks assisted not only in the logistics and planning phase; but they also facilitated access to several private parcels of land, joined in with some of the survey teams, and hosted the entire group to a home-cooked dinner at the Highland Center on Sunday night, June 8. Although it remained cool and cloudy the first part of the week, the rain did diminished.

Breeding Bird Surveys at CCFS As part of her 2003 internship, SFBBO Landbird intern, Amy Scarpignato, performed Breeding Bird Surveys (BBS) for Song Sparrows and Common Yellowthroats from March 31 to July 15. BBS is a survey method to determine the number of territories and the density of birds in a given area. Once a week Amy surveyed the Coyote Creek Field Station (CCFS) by walking the area of the station and noting on a map where male Song Sparrows and Common Yellowthroats were singing. At the end of each month, she compiled the data to form a map of sightings for that month. When the surveys were complete, she then accumulated all the data from each month onto one map. (more below)
    The above image is an aerial photograph taken over the CCFS area. The riparian area is seen as the "snake-like" segment running through the middle of the photo. The BBS area, as seen on the map below, is the wide oval-shaped area in the middle of the Riparian corridor.
