Thanks for sharing, Dane. Texbirds is still very relevant (in spite of the

mass migration to Facebook) and much more direct when it comes to sharing

reports of rare birds with the birding community than one of the many

Facebook groups with various titles, access and/or permissions. Who has the

time to hunt through Facebook groups for bits and pieces of information? In

my experience, alerts and notifications aren't always timely or reliable,

for that matter.



In my opinion, Texbirds is still the go-to source for sharing sightings and

information.



Thanks!

Subject: [IBLE] Rose-breasted Grosbeak
I've been waiting for some spring migrants to show. And, in the meantime, donating pounds of black-oil sunflower seeds to 30+ American Goldfinches at a time.

Well, this afternoon while watching goldfinches, an adult male Rose-breasted Grosbeak came into the feeder. Quite a surprise but welcome sight! My first Idaho sightings of this species were sev juveniles & probably one Rose-breasted/Black-headed hybrid last fall at my feeders. It will be exciting to see what happens this year with Rose-breasteds.

Others this past week: Swainson's Hawks, Wood Ducks, Sandhill Crane, White-faced Ibis, White Pelicans, Osprey, numerous Eared Grebes, Ruddy Duck & Western Meadowlark. Also, little brown bats have returned to their roost box & both N Leopard Frogs & Great Basin Spadefoot Toads are calling at night. Still waiting for the Chorus Frogs to get going, sometimes by the hundreds.

Subject: [IBLE] Teton Valley update
Greetings,

Yesterday and today on my weekend forays in the northwest section of Teton Valley, I observed a few new species of the year:

Ruby-crowned Kinglets heard at 3 sites near Packsaddle and Horsehoe Creek drainages. They were giving only partial, short songs.

Red-naped Sapsucker one male on an older aspen. Close to a drumming Downy Woodpecker.

Brewer's Blackbird a few showed up in a yard near highway 33

Fox Sparrow heard two males singing along Horseshoe Creek

Swainson's Hawk--saw my first one last weekend but a few more around today.

Gray-crowned Rosy-finch-all gone except for one I found in a forested stand.. Was surprised to see it there.

Interesting that Clark's nutcrackers continue to hit the suet feeders in our neighborhood very hard this spring. High count of 6 and they are quite aggressive towards each other.

Also Steller's Jays continue to feed regularly.

Cassin's Finch--numbers continue to build at the feeders. They park on the sunflower seed tubes until flushed off by another finch.

And heard of one Great Gray Owl that is on a nest incubating. This is an old goshawk nest that I originally found back in the early 90s.


Happy Earth Day, Susan

Yesterday saw a big push by N. Shovelers who were present on every pond from
Quinn's to Esther Simplot to Veterans to Silver Lake. They were accompanied
by Ruddy Ducks and some other stragglers looking for company.

Today I saw almost every kind of duck that passes through Boise. N. Shoveler
at Quinn's, Bufflehead, RN Duck and C. Goldeneye at Esther Simplot, and L.
Scaup and Cinnamon Teal (FOY) at Silver Lake, to name just a few. Gadwall,
Wood Duck, A. Wigeon, H. Merganser, Mallard and C. Merganser were also out
and about.

The real treat was a Black-necked Stilt (FOY)standing on a log out on Silver
Lake. Quite a shock for me since there is no shallow water for his kind at
Silver Lake.

When I got back to Veterans, I found 3 of the brightest Cinnamon Teal I've
ever seen floating around with a pair of GW Teal. The Cinnamons were redder
than any of their ilk that I've ever seen.

YR Warblers were also pretty common today, including one Myrtle subspecies
between Veterans and the back pond at ESP. Plus I was able to identify 4
species of swallow, missing only Cliff and Bank.

Thanks to all the new arrivals and all the old standbys, I was able to
identify 51 species in 16 miles. And it only rained on me a little bit. ;-)

Yesterday I found three groups of Snow Geese on and around AFR. One group of about 2000 were in a pasture north of Edwards Rd., which is south east of Springfield. Two groups of about 150 and 1000 were resting on the reservoir out from Yuma Rd. This is the latest I’ve seen them hang around after everything is thawed out.
Good Boiden,

While the Williamson's Sapsucker did not cooperate by sticking around, I
managed to find 51 species today in 24 miles of biking. I had to "portage"
my bike around some flooded greenbelt on the Garden City side, and the
tunnel under Glenwood was flooded, but the birds were relatively
cooperative. I only found 1 FOY bird (Tree Swallow) but I found 7 raptors
(W.S. Owl, RT Hawk, Osprey, Cooper's Hawk, A. Kestrel, GH Owl, and Bald
Eagle) and plenty of ducks.

The paved path that used to end at Laguna Pointe now continues on around the
south side of that subdivision of mansions, but the "primitive surface"
path along the river bank was closed, possibly due to high water. (Of course
the HOA of Laguna Pointe would love to stop everybody from traipsing along
the riverbank in full view of the landowners.) Unfortunately, the recently
added paved surface winds around the edge of the open field where we used to
occasionally see Egrets. That's probably history.

Ironically, my 51st bird was waiting for me at my house, an American
Goldfinch. This was my highest count so far this year, by 1 bird. Since I've
only seen 70 species thus far in the year, today was a pretty good tally.

Subject: [IBLE] Williamson's Sapsucker
I was on my usual bike ride and had just come out of the restroom at Lander
St. when I heard a bird calling that I did not recognize. While I do not
know all the Boise River birds by sound, I knew I had never heard this sound
along the river. The bird continued to make little "whinny" noises, which
made it relatively easy to find. As soon as I saw the bird, I knew I had
something different. The bird was obviously a type of woodpecker, but it had
none of the markings I'm familiar with. It's back was like a Ladder-backed
Woodpecker, but so was its front, which didn't fit anything in my memory
banks. Adhering to Harry Krueger's advice to watch the bird before grabbing
the guide, I stood and watched its continued activity, trying to get a
better view of its head for any markings.

In the meantime I called Larry and Missy Arnold for some backup. While they
were en route, I realized the bird was acting like a sapsucker, going back
over areas where it had already pecked. I searched the photos in iBirdPro
and found a match in the female (juvenile?) Williamson's Sapsucker. While I
had seen adult males in the mountains before, I had never seen this
particular plumage, which made it quite a treat.

Larry and Missy arrived and confirmed my identification, and I was as happy
as a hog at the trough.

For anybody chasing, the bird was sticking to a pine tree just west of the
rest room. The 2 trunks of the tree form a large "V."

lemme add that the bird was consistently near the top of an evergreen nearest (and west of) the loo, within 75 m of the RBSA spot of a couple winters ago, hope this helps the chasers and listers... =)

Subject: [IBLE] A new yard bird is a big deal after almost 18 years!
I just got my 67th specie for my yard a Spotted Towhee, with great rufous sides. When I looked out at my feeder area about 15 minutes ago, I saw a bird flit that I thought, thats really large for a Junco, so I got out my camera and binocs and sure enough it was my first-ever Spotted Towhee here. An exciting start to the day. Everyone have a great one! Jonathan, HSB

Subject: [IBLE] Swainson's Hawk Arrival
Swainson's Hawks seemed to arrive right on time again this year. I saw
my first in Pocatello on the 2nd and there were a few reported on March
30-31. There's an interesting discussion of early arriving (or not)
Broad-winged and Swainson's Hawks taking place on the ebird review group
right now and I want to share a couple things I found very interesting.
Tony Leukering posted links to a couple of his articles detailing
identification pitfalls, some of which are not on most of our radar.
They're at:

https://cobirds.org/cfo/ColoradoBirds/InTheScope/30.pdf
http://cowyebird.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-arrival-of-swainsons-hawks.html?m=1

Check out the photo of an adult Redtail at the first link. A very
interesting bird. The other thing I found really cool is looking at
eBird maps for the month of March for both species. There are plenty of
records for southern locations and a scattering of northerly records for
both species. However if you click the "Explore Rich Media" checkbox at
the right of the map (checking this box eliminates points for checklists
that don't include photos or other media) all the Broad-winged records
north of North Carolina and Tennessee and all the interior west records
north of southern Idaho and Oregon disappear. ALL of them. Strong
evidence to support that Swainson's Hawks rarely move north ahead of the
main migration pulse. Here's a link to the map for Idaho:
https://ebird.org/map/swahaw?neg=true&env.minX=-133.4779375&env.minY=39.57926189552747&env.maxX=-94.8060625&env.maxY=51.04746231191178&zh=true&gp=true&ev=Z&mr=on&bmo=3&emo=3&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2018
Check out all the northerly records then click the rich media box and
watch the result.

So if ever you find one early, even only 2-3 days, remember how
important it is to get photos to document the occurrence.

Subject: [IBLE] More arrivals
Last night's storm brought in some birds I haven't been seeing in quantity.
At Quinn's Pond there was a raft of Northern Shovelers, a bird I rarely see
at Quinn's. There was also a pair of Lesser Scaup, m+f, first on the Simplot
pond and then later on Quinn's.

At Silver Lake there was another raft of N. Shovelers, plus a smaller group
of both Ring-neck Ducks and Greater Scaup.

And despite the wind there were quite a few YR Warblers signaling their
presence as I rode along. Plus, at Esther Simplot, I had a flyover by a Bald
Eagle on the way out and an Osprey on the way back. While Osprey are easy to
find down at the west end of the greenbelt, they still are not all that
common up at "my" end.

Subject: [IBLE] first Black Rosy-finch sighting
Packsaddle, Estates NW Teton Valley-foothills of the Big Hole Mountains, Teton County

The snow storm brought in a flock of about 60 Gray-crowned Rosy-finch to our yard again this weekend. We had been seeing up to 200 this winter but they disappeared when the weather improved last week.

This morning April 2, I finally saw 2 Black Rosy-finch in the flock eating seeds on our deck. Got a few photos also. I had been looking for this species all winter so was thrilled to finally observe them.

The Black RF nest in the Teton Range in WY. The first graduate study on nesting BLRF will be completed later this year through the Univ of WY.

Snow is still falling here! The ground squirrels started to emerge last week also.

Best, Susan Patla

Subject: [IBLE] File - IBLE Guidelines.txt

Posts to the IBLE group are not moderated but should follow these general guidelines. Please read the prohibition below the guidelines.

1) All messages are to be signed by the poster, using his/her real name.
Along with the name, it is considered good practice to also show your e-mail
address, and city from which you post.

2) Messages reporting sightings, should also provide at least minimal
information as to where the sighting took place, i.e., State, County,
City/Town. Major birding destinations such as Deer Flat NWR, Minidoka NWR,
American Falls Reservoir, etc. may be adequate in some situations. However,
if the sighting is expected to generate interest sufficient to have other
birders travel to view the bird, more detailed directions should be provided,
or the name and contact info for someone willing to supply such directions on
request.

3) Messages concerning caged birds, feral cats, etc. are strongly discouraged.

4) Messages conveying derogatory statements about any other person, a person's
occupation or motives are strictly forbidden, and will be cause for one's
membership to be suspended or even terminated for severe or repeated offenses.

5) It is permissible to post digital images to the list, but not more than
1 or 2 at a time and not in excess of 300K total. More extensive collections should be posted to the "Photos" section of the IBLE website. Contact the listowner, if you need more details.

PROHIBITED
Posting of directions to the location of any owl nest is not permitted. In addition photos of owls at a nest are not permitted on IBLE. Failure to follow this rule will result in loss of posting privileges. No Exceptions.

Again, enjoy your membership on IBLE, and we look forward to reading your
contributions to the group.

I am sure others have seen Turkey Vultures returning to Idaho for the year, but I haven't. And, living in town if I see them at all from my house they are way up high and in the distance. So, I was quite surprised Friday night when I walked out onto my deck to light up the barbecue. As I walked out to the barbecue I heard some loud rustlings up above me. I stopped and looked in the top of the tall Cottonwood tree in my backyard and was quite surprised to see 20 Turkey Vultures roosting in the bare branches. I imagine they had planned on spending the night there. Well they were not that happy in seeing me, so within a minute or two they all flew off down the hill looking for a calmer place to spend the night. I hope they found one.

Hello hello,

I want to send out this announcement and spread the word about it, by my
own initiative and I’ve been encourage to do so by others. I participated
in the Western Fields Ornithologists youth scholarship program several
years ago and it was a great experience. I made great connections and it
provided good insight into ornithology. More simply put, it was an
enjoyable time (and full of great birds while I was in east-central Montana
at the 2015 annual meeting). I consider it a significant moment in my
ornithology “career”.

In short, if you know of anyone who would be interested pass it along!

I appreciate it and good birding,

Subject: [IBLE] Teton Valley robin
Hi,

Today March 25 we had an American Robin appear on the aspen tree that is the main perch for the territorial pair that nests every year by or on the house. I saw another one yesterday in the neighborhood also.

With the snow today and yesterday, the large flock of Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch returned (estimate at least 200 birds). Still could not find one Black RF in the bunch.

We also still have about 12 Pine Grosbeaks hanging out, a few magpies, and Red-breasted Nuthatch. Small flocks of juncos appeared down the hill but overall, it is still very quiet birdwise up here in Packsaddle in the foothills of the Big Holes.

Best, Susan

Subject: [IBLE] En-raptor-ed again
At 3:30 this morning I was awakened by one of my favorite sounds-a Western
Screech Owl. I smiled in the dark, thinking this would be the start of my
day list.

But when I woke up to a snowstorm, I figured I wasn't going to be able to
bike today. Then, when the sun came out, I started eyeing the streets for
bikeability.

Along the way, while doing "poop fairy" duties in my yard, I was visited by
a wonderful Sharp-shinned Hawk, putting my day list at 10 and scaring
everybody with feathers. This made a bike ride an absolute necessity. After
all, I can't write them down unless I do a bike ride. ;-)

So off I headed, with the streets not nearly as wet as I had expected and
not icy as I had feared. I was greeted at Esther Simplot by a flyover of an
Osprey. Now I had 15 birds and 3 of them were raptors . I rounded up the
usual suspects, including the lingering female Greater Scaup at Veterans
Pond and a Common Goldeneye on the back pond. By the time I left the park
and headed downstream, I was up to 29 birds.

A quick detour for my favorite Great Horned Owls was disappointing at first
when they weren't in their usual tree, but as I stood looking around, one of
them hooted to let me know they were still in the neighborhood. Then I had a
flyover by a Cooper's Hawk near Veterans Park, followed by a flyover by a
Bald Eagle near Willow Lane.

I rode downstream on the Boise side until I found the wintering N. Pintail
and saw a small raft of Lesser Scaup at Silver Lake. Along the way I came
upon another Sharp-shinned Hawk, this one having dinner al fresco. Bird 39
was a DC Cormorant back at the Whitewater Park, and a flock of California
Gulls on Quinn's Pond put me at 40.

My neighborhood Red-tailed Hawks seemed to be hiding when I got home, but
then they got noisy and active again and made me happy. That brought my
final tally to 42 birds in 13 miles, with 7 of them raptors. Not bad for a
day that looked like a snow day in the morning.

P.S. As I sit here at my computer, my friendly neighborhood Western Screech
Owl is calling constantly and making me smile.

Subject: [IBLE] Snow Geese still around Am. Falls Res.
Howdy,
This afternoon I found three huge flocks of Snow Geese on the north side of the reservoir. One was in a field. Just south of Hwy 39 about three miles from Am. Falls, near where they were last weekend. Another was in a field east of Yuma Rd. Finally, a huge flock was south of Vambaur Rd., which is south of Springfield. The entire reservoir is now unfrozen, and many diving ducks are moving through.
Good Birding!
Chuck Trost

Always forward, never straight...

Thanks, Larry. I've never actually seen that photo displayed on eBird.
Heidi Ware saw it on March 9 and Mary Rumple a few days before that, so I'm
guessing it's rotating? Would be fun to see it there for myself!
