Hello, this is a December 7 update of the Carolina Rare Bird Alert featuring
birding news from North and South Carolina sponsored by the Carolina Bird
Club. Highlights on this report include:
GREEN- BREASTED MANGO (NOT)
FULVOUS WHISTLING- DUCKS
The GREEN-BREASTED MANGO present in Concord, NC for over 2 weeks failed to
appear at the feeders today Dec. 7 despite a constant vigil by several
birders from 10:00 AM until 5:15 PM. This is the first day that this reliable
bird has not appeared since 11-19.
A male CINNAMON TEAL is being seen at the Goldsboro, NC wastewater treatment
facility . For directions and updates, call Eric Dean at 919-736-7264 .
At this same facility, a FULVOUS WHISTLING-DUCK has been seen frequently.
This bird is in a different lagoon from the teal. Again for updates and
directions, call Eric Dean at 919-736-7264 .
Up to 7 FULVOUS WHISTLING -DUCKS have been seen at Magnolia Gardens near
Charleston, SC. Look in Indian Mound Pond for the ducks.
A male EURASIAN WIGEON is being seen with a small group of Am. Wigeon at
Greenfield Lake in Wilmington, NC. This bird has been seen since 11-25.
Female RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS are coming to feeders in Fort Mill, SC and

A good place to observe raptors in eastern NC is the Alligator River NWR off

sky. On 12-5, 5 species were seen in just over 2 hours, including bald eagle
and peregrine falcon.
