I didn't post anything about it, but last week on 6-8 November I saw about 50 Pine Siskins in a few scattered flocks in both Kingman and Harper Counties. It's too earlier to predict an irruption, I suppose, but when you're seeing them scattered around out in open country it's a good sign.
I birded the Kingman shore of Cheney Res. on 8 November and saw tons of diving ducks and gulls, but found absolutely nothing rare. I then drove through Quivira's Big Salt Marsh near sundown and again saw lots of birds but little that was noteworth. At least two Short-eared Owls were flying around on the west side of the Wildlife Drive.
