Subject: [IBLE] Bird Numbers



By now, suspect most have read that N Amer bird numbers are down by 30% since 1970's. I've kept in touch for yrs with my long-retired Ornithology Prof at Univ TX. And, even though my data doesn't begin to compare with his records from TX (esp North, Gulf Coast, Rio Grande Valley & Big Bend), he & I first compared notes 30 yrs ago re: decreasing warbler migration numbers from my Idaho backyard & his N TX wanderings. In fact, birded with him this summer on a visit to son's family & it's becoming a treat to see N Cardinal, Blue Jay, Carolina Wren & TX state bird: Mockingbird. All of which, I barely gave a 2nd glance during undergrad yrs, as they were so common. Prof has definitely noted decreasing numbers of most individual species & esp prominent over the past decade.

Locally, an avid birder & I visited this past spring comparing notes, as well. We had concluded that along our respective areas of the Snake River corridor, overall bird numbers had decreased by a rough figure of 35% in past 10-15 yrs. Unfortunately, follows suit with the article which reviewed Breeding Bird, Christmas Watch & other Citizen Science data. Eventually, a loss of 2 billion birds from the landscape becomes...noticeable. Information for all of us who enjoy birding to ponder.

On an observation note, today found singles of: Nashville Warbler, Gray Catbird, RC Kinglet, Spotted Towhee & House Wren. Also, mixed flocks of Brewer's, Lincoln's, White-crowned & Chipping Sparrows working through the sagebrush/rabbit brush grassy area on place.

Subject: [IBLE] Red-shouldered Hawk in Canyon County
Location: Lions Pond, across the lower dam at Lake Lowell. (Deer Flat NWR)

This morning I watched a Red-shouldered Hawk dive at an adult Black-crowned Night Heron. The screeching heron flew away with the hawk chasing it. A Red-tailed Hawk joined the melee and dove at the Cooper’s Hawk.

After a few minutes the Red-shouldered Hawk flew at the screeching heron again. This time the heron flew in to a shrub and the Hawk landed on a downed tree branch and spent several minutes looking for the heron.

But all the while there was a young Black-crowned Night Heron and several ducks below the Hawk, just a few feet away.

Gotta love Nature’s drama.

Thanks Bryce Robinson for correcting my original identification. 😊

Heidi and I headed to CJ Strike with some of Intermountain Bird Observatory’s Lucky Peak crew yesterday
afternoon and were rewarded by 4 immature Sabine’s Gulls seen from the Cottonwood boat dock - including this one that flew by pretty close (thanks Matthew Danihel for the pic). There were also quite a few Common Terns (30+ between Cottonwood and the upper end of Jack’s Creek) and 2 distant birds that looked good for adult Arctic Terns - I just couldn’t pull the trigger without a better view \uD83D\uDE01

My yard was more birdy than normal this morning. I saw a new yard bird ...a
warbling Vireo! I also got a new yard family meaning that I watched a male
American goldfinch feeding young. I've seen plenty of goldfinches in my
yard before but never juveniles being fed by a parent!

Yes, I agree with you Larry. I wouldn't leave it in eBird unless I had better feedback in the affirmative. I figured it would generate some responses and it did on Facebook. I appreciate all the help. I'll leave it in there as a note because I don't have enough evidence to confirm this sighting. Maybe Carl will make it up there before the snow flies. I didn't try taping because I didn't have White-tailed Ptarmigan sounds on my app. I also couldn't search for long because I had my friend scared half to death up there and I had a long hike across rugged terrain to go before dark.

This is kind of like a Bigfoot sighting. There are a lot of blurry photos of Bigfoot but nothing to prove that it exists. Haha

Jason, this may or may not help you with a decision regarding your encounter, but here are some considerations…



In my experience, ptarmigan are generally not shy and are very responsive to playback. I’ve had them practically land at my feet, clucking softly (not their usual scream) and starring me down, both summer and winter. The latter experience was while X-skiing above Aspen.



I find only four IBRC records in Idaho, all reported during Oct-Mar, most recently 27 years ago. This is in spite of birders looking for them in likely locations in the Selkirks, and maybe even in the Purcells and Cabinets. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with the species on my eBird list without seeing the bird(s), knowing they aren’t shy. I’ve made mistakes with “identification by vocals-only” that turned out to be mammals, vegetation squeaking in a breeze, or juvies of other bird species. Without photo-documentation, or at least a good decisive visual, my tendency with eBird lists would be to enter notes in the “general comments” for reference purposes only..



In other locations where I’ve lived and birded, our rule-of-thumb *even* for annually expected migrants was that first-of-year birds need to be seen, especially if they were early dates. This should add perspective for a first WTPT encounter in Idaho in nearly 30 yrs. Maybe?



FWIW, Larry

Yes, I agree with you Larry. I wouldn't leave it in eBird unless I had better feedback in the affirmative. I figured it would generate some responses and it did on Facebook. I appreciate all the help. I'll leave it in there as a note because I don't have enough evidence to confirm this sighting. Maybe Carl will make it up there before the snow flies. I didn't try taping because I didn't have White-tailed Ptarmigan sounds on my app. I also couldn't search for long because I had my friend scared half to death up there and I had a long hike across rugged terrain to go before dark.
This is kind of like a Bigfoot sighting. There are a lot of blurry photos of Bigfoot but nothing to prove that it exists. Haha

Subject: [texbirds] Hummingbirds on the Storm



Greetings All:



After a considerable period of time with no hummingbirds in my yard

(the last hummingbird to grace my yard was a male Rufous Hummingbird

on 19 July) a veritable horde (at least six) descended on my feeders

this evening just before some weather blew in from the west. This may

have been coincidental but one can't help but wonder if the storm

shifted them this way and put them in the way of looking for urban

feeders.



Closely watching the perches and perch evictions at the feeders and on

nearby branches I was able to identify four of the six birds present:

an immature female Calliope Hummingbird that liked to perch low in the

lantanas and was left relatively unmolested at the feeders and at her

perch; an immature male Broad-tailed Hummingbird that sought out high

perches on bare branches in one of the pecan trees (and was in

constant turmoil with the Rufous Hummingbirds); and two Rufous

Hummingbirds (one immature female and one immature male) that perched

on lines near the feeder or in the fruitless mulberry on the other

side of the house and were in constant conflict with the Broad-tailed

Hummingbird and with each other.



The Calliope Hummingbird was pretty sly, slipping in on the feeders

from her low perch in the lantana thickets whenever the other, larger

birds were busy chasing each other out of the yard.



The other two hummingbirds seen lacked any buffy or reddish tones but

were not allowed to settle long enough at perches or at the feeders

for me to get really solid looks - with both Ruby-throated Hummingbird

and Black-chinned Hummingbird possible at my feeders in September I

had to leave these two birds be, identification-wise.

She also reports we might have more Rufous than Black-chins right now, which is a *first* for our little patch of a yard in west Boise. Total number she reported was 10 hums +/-

I consider the jury to still be out, but I guess we are probably leaning
Black-headed on my Grosbeak. I'm not sure I've seen a Black-headed with
such heavy dense and uniform streaking all the way across the breast and
down onto the belly, and it's hard to find online photos that quite match
it, in those respects. However, some are close, Neil Paprocki obtained
additional photos that show some buffiness on the nape, and the bill may
not be quite as pink as I thought in the field. Any additional input is
welcome from those knowledgeable about the finer points of identifying
immature Pheucticus Grosbeaks.

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.

Subject: [IBLE] Shorebirds at Bruneau Duck Ponds and a ribbon of ravens
Four of us from Golden Eagle Audubon birded Bruneau Duck Ponds Friday
morning after a crop duster disrupted our Wednesday morning group trip
there. Highlights included at least 70 great and 2 snowy egrets; a young
black-crowned night heron; western, least, and Baird’s sandpipers; 2
semi-palmated plovers and many killdeer; greater and lesser yellowlegs;
long-billed dowitchers; avocets mostly in winter plumage now; black-necked
stilts; and a lone marbled godwit. Other species included large numbers of
ducks - mallards, pintails, wigeons, all 3 teal species, gadwall, and
shovelers; California quail, Canada geese; white pelicans; barn, bank,
cliff, and northern rough-winged swallows; ring-billed and California
gulls; eastern kingbird, song sparrows, yellow warblers, house finches, at
least one hummer, and black-billed magpies with a turkey vulture thrown in
as we returned to the car.

Afterwards, we went to Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park for lunch. While we
hadn’t really intended to bird there it turned out to be a fairly birdy
spot Friday with yellow, Townsend’s, and Wilson’s warblers, collared doves,
black-chinned hummers (at least 7) and a probable calliope, common
nighthawk, red-tailed hawk, eastern kingbird, and barn and bank swallows.
But the most astonishing sight was a ribbon of ravens that stretched from
horizon to horizon running roughly east-west and drifting slowly southward,
including at least 2 kettles. We estimated there were at least 500 birds
and we probably missed many. While I’ve seen crows in this and larger
numbers wintering in downtown Portland, I’ve never seen ravens in such
numbers. What a sight!

Took a trip to the shoshone basin hummer stations Wednesday while camped in the south hills. Hundreds still there bulking up for the big migration. I can’t describe the feeling of sitting alone watching them flit about. So many thanks to the awesome folks who keep about 50 feeders filled for the public’s enjoyment.
