Species in ALL CAPS can be classified into three categories in the state of
Iowa: 1) UNRECORDED, ACCIDENTAL or Casual; 2) A RARE but regular species;
or 3) record early or late date or unusual for time of year. Any species
with three asterisks (***species***) would represent a first record for
Iowa (UNRECORDED) and should be observed and documented very carefully.
Species with two asterisks (**species**) are species that are either
ACCIDENTAL, CASUAL, or a rare regular species, and should also be
documented. Species with one asterisk (*species) should have some details
of the observation provided.



A BLUE GROSBEAK was seen at Wickiup Hill NA on the 9th. Specifically, The
location was down the gated road, which continues west after the end of
Morris Hill Road. I've always found it near the road, from the pond all the
way west to the brush and debris dump on the south side.


A HOODED WARBLER was seen at The Mines of Spain RA on the 11th.



A WORM-EATING WARBLER was seen at the Croton Unit of Shimek SF on the 8th.
Specifically, At the first creek crossing instead of going left over the
main creek, go right, through the brush, and follow the smaller creek up to
the wooded canyon. This is where the bird was. It was approx. 20 yards up
the canyon.


A COMMON GALLINULE was seen at Cone Marsh on the 12th.



The next scheduled report of the Iowa Rare Bird Alert will be for Friday,
June 19, 2020 for the weekly report. Should any UNRECORDED or ACCIDENTAL
species be reported, an update will be posted.
