Yes, we would prefer raptors select those species you listed, but when food presents itself, the birds must act. It reminds me of a situation in the Galapagos Islands when a nest of turtles hatched during an overcast afternoon that they must have misinterpreted as full moon lighting. As the hatchlings emerged, the Frigate birds began to swoop down, pick up a nestling and eat it as the bird circled around to repeat. We were not allowed to interfere, so the entire hatch was consumed by the birds.

I’m so sad – that is one of my favorite birds. I didn’t know Bald Eagles would grab a bird like that. I heard of something similar happening awhile back in California with a rare bird, where it flew up while everyone was watching, and got snatched by a raptor in mid-air… wish they only fed on Starlings, House Sparrows and Eurasian Collared Doves…

For those of us who follow other state Alerts. don't bother traveling to Seattle to see the rare Ross's Gull. A Bald Eagle ate it!!! See Jon Hougton's post on eBird WA alerts for photograph of the gull being carried off. Sorry not in Idaho but case of truth being stranger than fiction!!

Subject: [IBLE] Ada Co. Landfill
My first real posting here, beyond yesterday's test.
Seem to be having some trouble logging in. I can log in with my email/password only from the Home Page. Any/all other pages that permit me to sign in reject both my email as well as my password, don't say which. Am I going about this the wrong way? Should I stay constantly logged in or as normal, sign-in/sign-out as required? Or is it that I can only sign-in when I am logged in on my ISP's email site, which is what seems to be happening? Haven't yet figured out what is...?
Was up to the landfill a bit ago. Only got 5 MODO's and one RTHA, the latter feeding on something small while perched on a power pole. The top was totally fogged in. Not able to see anything so called it. Another time.
Signing-out... perplexedly... for the moment.
Continued Good Birding (in future: CGB). RL

Yes, we would prefer raptors select those species you listed, but when food
presents itself, the birds must act. It reminds me of a situation in the
Galapagos Islands when a nest of turtles hatched during an overcast
afternoon that they must have misinterpreted as full moon lighting. As the
hatchlings emerged, the Frigate birds began to swoop down, pick up a
nestling and eat it as the bird circled around to repeat. We were not
allowed to interfere, so the entire hatch was consumed by the birds.

Tom,

Thanks for another bike4birds report. Had I been there, I would have
exclaimed wow also. Even after 28 years in Alaska where Bald Eagles were
fairly common the sight of a Bald Eagle is still a thrill. My mind is
imagining yesterday's flight.

Subject: [IBLE] continuing Ovenbird in Boise

Echoing thoughts of others, thanks very much Cliff & others for rescuing IBLE :-) Despite double-checking my Yahoo! settings, I haven't had access for many months so I'm glad to be connected again!

The Ovenbird that Heidi first noticed on Halloween continues to visit our yard on a daily basis (I think we've missed seeing it on a few days in Nov but mostly on days with little effort looking out the window). With the wet snow/wintry conditions, I was starting to worry a bit today but at 2pm sharp it was feeding on mealworms in the "normal spot" under the rosemary bush near the front door. If you've yet to see this bird & want to, you're welcome to try - you can check eBird (i.e., ebird.org/map/ovenbi1?neg=true&env.minX=&env.minY=&env.maxX=&env.maxY=&zh=false&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=on&bmo=11&emo=12&yr=cur<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fmap%2Fovenbi1%3Fneg%3Dtrue%26env.minX%3D%26env.minY%3D%26env.maxX%3D%26env.maxY%3D%26zh%3Dfalse%26gp%3Dfalse%26ev%3DZ%26mr%3Don%26bmo%3D11%26emo%3D12%26yr%3Dcur&data=02%7C01%7C%7C529e068c7be544e9843608d77770811e%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637109197387462137&sdata=Oj%2B%2FFgICq%2BdML0MDAzcWdMUC6EWmHCUe9dIS%2BK2znQI%3D&reserved=0>) for location info but I suggest parking near the fire hydrant & street sign at the corner of Bitteroot and Lawrence and viewing from your car towards the cinder blocks that separate the lawn from where the rosemary and other small shrubs are. If any neighbors (or our friendly mailman :-) look at you funny or talk with you, please do let them know you're there with our permission. Hard to predict when it'll appear - seemingly random and at all hours of the day - but most often we've noticed it in the first hour after sunrise and in the ~345-445pm time frame. Sometimes it comes solo, other times with a small horde of juncos. If your high range hearing is still in good shape, keep your window down and listen for a high-pitched and sweet "seep" note that we've heard on many occasions.

And, if you haven't already, please eBird<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fhome&data=02%7C01%7C%7C529e068c7be544e9843608d77770811e%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637109197387462137&sdata=Io6yDY4%2Fd2e2IfdsN7e3CaB6G5FPQ7yXgZdyAaWC2XI%3D&reserved=0> your sightings!

Subject: [IBLE] New IBLE
Hi everyone, just sending a test message to see if it goes through.
I have not been able to send, or reply on Messages in Ible for quite some time now. But I’ve been able to view people‘s posts which was sometimes frustrating when I was mentioned and such and could not reply. So needless to say I’m excited about the new group and thankful to all who made it happen.
Looking forward to being better connected. Thanks again, Mary Rumple

Subject: [IBLE] continuing Ovenbird in Boise
Echoing thoughts of others, thanks very much Cliff & others for rescuing IBLE :-)  Despite double-checking my Yahoo! settings, I haven't had access for many months so I'm glad to be connected again!
The Ovenbird that Heidi first noticed on Halloween continues to visit our yard on a daily basis (I think we've missed seeing it on a few days in Nov but mostly on days with little effort looking out the window).  With the wet snow/wintry conditions, I was starting to worry a bit today but at 2pm sharp it was feeding on mealworms in the "normal spot" under the rosemary bush near the front door.  If you've yet to see this bird & want to, you're welcome to try - you can check eBird (i.e., ebird.org/map/ovenbi1?neg=true&env.minX=&env.minY=&env.maxX=&env.maxY=&zh=false&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=on&bmo=11&emo=12&yr=cur) for location info but I suggest parking near the fire hydrant & street sign at the corner of Bitteroot and Lawrence and viewing from your car towards the cinder blocks that separate the lawn from where the rosemary and other small shrubs are.  If any neighbors (or our friendly mailman :-) look at you funny or talk with you, please do let them know you're there with our permission.  Hard to predict when it'll appear - seemingly random and at all hours of the day - but most often we've noticed it in the first hour after sunrise and in the ~345-445pm time frame.  Sometimes it comes solo, other times with a small horde of juncos.  If your high range hearing is still in good shape, keep your window down and listen for a high-pitched and sweet "seep" note that we've heard on many occasions.

And, if you haven't already, please eBird your sightings!
Thanks,
Jay

Subject: [IBLE] Lost message
I sent the following message last night, but apparently events overtook me
and we are now on a NEW IBLE. Anyway, here's my message from yesterday:



While I have adopted the self-preservation attitude that I should not bike
on icy surfaces, I was lured out of the house this morning by the fact that
nothing was falling out of the sky. My reward was 39 species in less than 9
miles, including a Bald Eagle at Esther Simplot, a Great Horned Owl at
Veterans, several C. Ravens, and then a "cloud" of C. Waxwings, A. Robins,
L. Goldfinches, Pine Siskins, DE Juncos, and a lone Downy near Silver Lake.
But it was right about that point that something did start to fall out of
the sky, and it was snowing heavily by the time I got home.

The nice thing was that the Bald Eagle hung around Esther Simplot long
enough that going both directions I was able to share it with a bunch of
people, all of whom had the appropriate "Wow!" response. That always makes
me feel good.

BTW, a few DC Cormorants continue, despite the weather. And a bunch of ducks
have returned to hang out in the winter wonderland that is the greenbelt.

Tom McCabe, Boise

Subject: [IBLE] IBLE Transfer
First I want to than everyone who offered to help out with the transfer
cost. I'll send you all private emails to work out details. I appreciate
the support.

I just OK'd the transfer before going to bed last night and didn't
expect it to happen so fast. Looks like it's up and running so I'm going
to discontinue posting to the old yahoogroups address after sending this
message. Looks like all but 4 of the messages from the Yahoo site were
successfully transferred along with all the files. A couple things you
should know about the new format. Photo uploads are not allowed at this
time. If we keep it under 1gb of storage there is no ongoing cost for
the group. Photos attached to emails are allowed (with a 500K size
limit). The way it's set up attachments will be stored until the limit
has been reached, then the oldest photos will be automatically deleted
to make room for new attachments. I think that should work fine - the
photos on the old yahoo site were only up to 1.27gb so it will take
years to reach the limit. Photos can also be embedded in a document and
uploaded to the site (file uploads are permitted). With that in mind if
there are any photos you care about on the old site please go download
them before yahoo deletes them on Dec 14th.

Everyone should have received an invitation to join the group except
those who had their email preferences set to "Digest". If you didn't get
an invitation and you want to be a member drop me an email offline and
I'll send you an invitation. Of just browse to
https://groups.io/g/IBLE/topics and join.

This is all new to me too so let's see how it works. If there are any
problems or questions let me know.

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.

Melt together 1/2 cup lard and 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (microwave), then add stuff in approximate amounts:

1 cup corn meal

1 cup oatmeal (I use 5-seed "bulk" from WinCo)

1/2 cup flour (whatever’s on hand, prefer whole grain or whole wheat)

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped nuts, e.g., almonds, walnuts, pnuts, sunseed, again whatever’s on hand



Combine melted and dry ingredients and mix well, might take a bit more microwaving.

Subject: [IBLE] Re: migration and irruption

IBLE, with cc's to people otherwise unable to receive ~~~~~ ?

I don't remember responding to Carl's note below....... maybe yes in my dreams?

Carl provides excellent discussion, and I've gotta say that migration in all of its "formats" has long been one of my topmost two or three favorite subjects regarding birds, and Peter Berthold's "General Survey" (2001, maybe since updated?) (Oxford Ornithology Series) has been one of my favorite references on topic. I can offer only conjectures, e.g., that "irruptive species" utilize irruption as a precondition to range expansion in a manner similar to "vagrant species" that are doing the same thing but at a slower pace.. As an example, some warbler species tend to wander out of their expected ranges much more often than others do, and looking back at state-level CBC data I can see that ECDO are expanding northward way faster than WWDO, yada yada et yada. I've often thought of out-of-range birds as genetic outliers that are necessary for a given species' adaptive survival in a universe that is continually changing, whether they be considered as "typical migrants" or not. And I've not often considered "irruption" to be a black-and-white phenomenon for this or that species, vs. not for other species where it is much more subtle. Does this make sense? Seems to me there is a "spectrum" of "irruption" with some species being far less obvious at it than others....?

Maybe somebody can provide clarity, or reference to published data re "migration and propensity toward irruption" as it might relate to genetic variability. But I can't imagine what such "data" might look like.

Thank you, Carl, 10^6 for your discussion below. Love it !! =)

Subject: Re: [IBLE] And Then There Were...Three




Blue Jays move (presumably mostly out of Alberta) into (mostly north) Idaho each year in the fall. Some years it's a few. Some years it's a lot. This year happens to be a banner year with large numbers arriving throughout Idaho, including in more places than usual, and some making it as far south as northern Nevada, Utah, and southern Wyoming (below which they bump up against the breeding population on the Front Range). Montana is complicated because they have a breeding population (and some of our winter birds may come from there), but they also receive an influx during fall and winter. They are undoubtedly attracted to and facilitated by feeders and urbanization. While there may have been a slow range expansion over the last quarter century, this is much more a case of year-to-year variation in an irruptive species than a directional trend. Most or all of them will leave in the spring, although it wouldn't be surprising if a few eventually began breeding in Idaho (probably initially following with a big irruption year, like this).

Since sunrise this morning, I've been watching 3 Blue Jays coming in to feed on both whole corn kernels & black-oil sunflower seeds. Oftentimes, with all 3 present at once.

Given the reports this fall of Blue Jays, esp in E ID, I pulled my records. My only Steller's Jay sighting at our place along the Snake River was 10/8/2000, feeding in our dry overflow channel. First Blue Jay sighting was 5/16/2012 at the feeder. Then, last year, the one which overwintered, arrived on 10/21/2018 to the feeder.

Makes for some interesting questions. Are we witnessing a fall irruption of Blue Jays? Or, do we have a front row seat to observing the range expansion of Blue Jays? Is providing a seed source through feeders aiding a range expansion? Would be interested in others' thoughts. Probably too early to draw firm conclusions, but interesting, nonetheless.

My 3rd generation farmer buddy tells me his mom, who was a hobby birder used to see the occasional Blue Jay years ago, at the family homestead, a mile directly west of me. And, as an aside, until Starlings showed, Mt Bluebirds would nest all through this area...even in their mailbox once! The mailman had them nail a box up nearby, so as not to disturb the bluebirds. That would have been in the 1960's. A lot has changed since then.

It’s 31F here in W Boise, overcast, calm, and good-sized snowflakes have been drifting downward, lazily, much of the afternoon, Cooper’s Hawk has visited our backyard bird feeding station a couple times, presumably to maintain order and heightened vigilance, geese are huddled together across the street, mallards and wood ducks are snooping around under the crabapple trees, and impish feathered beasties have been constantly working my caged PBS suet (loose recipe attached)… including chickadees, nuthatches, kinglets, juncos, woodpeckers, sparrows. There’s been a nonstop parade to/from the suet, so I can’t help but wonder… what would these 'lil squirts be doing without my suet offering?

Thank you for your efforts and for finding what you think will be a

from around the state. When people tell the tale of their bird sightings,
it is more interesting to me than a posting of species, place, and time.
Backyard tales can be just as attention-getting as stories from the field.

and now i'm "blind-forwarding" Cliff's note to other email addresses i've found looking thru recent postings..........

not sure how to reach everyone who can no longer use ible or see ible archives, since there were 800+ peoples on the list when i last peeked

might take time to rebuild / reconstruct / a robust listserv for Idaho birders?

extreme thanks Cliff....... LOVE this news !!

pls give us an idea of price, one-time? vs. are there recurring charges?

again, infinite apologies like 10^6 for responding in public vs. your request for off-line reply

I for one can't live in Idaho w/o a public non-FB forum for birds and birding, just can't, because after moving 20 +/- times during our lives together, Missy and I don't need / nor want / any more moves

i.e., meaning all y'all might be stuck with us for the duration of our lives, so sorry ;-)

Subject: [IBLE] Fowl weather, great ride
It was quite cold with a skiff of snow on our lawn when I set out today. As
usual, I glanced at the large tree at 19th and Eastman and was rewarded with
a Merlin as bird #4. Things were quiet at Esther Simplot Park, but I was
able to find Gadwalls, A. Wigeons, and C. Mergansers. But Veterans Pond
produced L. Scaup, RN Ducks, a ton of C. Mergansers, and a PB Grebe. That
made my total 20.

My second raptor of the day was a GH Owl that has a well-disguised hangout
that I happened to find one day (going slow on a bike has its benefits).
Then I found a little "cloud" of BC Chickadees, Brown Creepers, RC Kinglets
and RB Nuthatches. By now I was over 30 birds and cautiously optimistic.

My optimism was rewarded at Les Bois track with a pair of RT Hawks, and the
pond had more RN Ducks than I've seen there in some time, plus Buffleheads
(and hordes of C. Geese of course).

As I headed back to the river from Remington St., I saw a large bird flying
upriver and got binos on him quickly enough to identify a Bald Eagle-always
a treat. The ride home along the river produced a small flock of C.
Goldeneye, a Cooper's Hawk, and an A. Kestrel (six raptors is a great day!).
Other birds of note were a foraging Bewick's Wren and a calling Pacific
Wren, plus several GB Herons.

My final tally was 42 birds in 11 miles. Not bad for an old fart.

Tom McCabe, Boise

you're welcome !!
fascinating observations from you herein.... want me to try forwarding to IBLE to see if mine goes thru? folks will have interest........

I know Trost will have interest (as author of the BNA species account of BB magpie), and I can add another observation I had re: magpie as prey......
maybe 15 yrs ago, I saw a Cooper's Hawk fly right past me with a magpie in its clutches
hmmm, but now with your note I wonder how certain I was about my ID, Coop vs. Gos ??? and there's a bit more to this story...

at SABO in SEAZ (Sheri Williamson's place) we saw a Coop try to lift off the ground with a roadrunner that was in its grasp, didn't succeed so left the roadrunner behind but with half of it's face torn off (and presumably consumed)
soon thereafter in CO I saw a Coop carrying a magpie, nearby, as in right past me !!
extrapolating, but without taking note of the gender of either Coop (which would also be of interest, and of importance), the lift or"carrying capacity" of Coop was somewhere between 13 oz (roadrunner) and 6 oz (magpie).... using Sibley's generic notations on weights

copying Trost, but copying IBLE will be your call =)

BTW, Solitaires are scarce in our immediate area of west Boise......

Thanks Larry. So, I just did a "Test" post to IBLE & received statement that it went thru. But, hasn't yet appeared. Also, am finding that starting yest IBLE is very sluggish in loading. Yahoo itself loads quickly as do my other websites & apps. But not IBLE.

To share with you, over past wk, have found 3 different piles of magpie feathers with tail feathers in one neat pile & body feathers in another, just inches away. I rarely find evidence of magpies as prey, let alone 3 in one wk. Believe I found the culprit yest, an adult N Goshawk.

Over the yrs, one usually appears approx every 3rd winter & sticks around for about a month. They do tend to go after larger birds from Eurasian Collared Doves to RN Pheasants. As well, have a good number of Townsend's Solitaires about.

At 9:13 this morning (11-24-19), one of the Boise bike officers texted me a
photo of the Boise Brant (they know my addiction). The bird was upstream of
the Capitol Blvd. Bridge, near the Velma Morrison Center. This is a heavily
traveled area, so I have no idea how long it will hang out.

I've listed the date and time because my IBLE postings have been taking
forever to show up.

Good luck to those who haven't yet seen the bird.

Good Evening

I observed and photographed a Brant at Dover Bay near Sandpoint, Idaho at 3pm this afternoon. The bird was in a small field with Canada Geese very close to the parking lot of the Balto Dog Park. The park is searchable on google maps.

Yes, I hesitated to create one in that case because: 1) I never anticipated the bird to stick around for more than a day or two, 2) I was just too busy to think hard about it, and 3) I was hesitant to create a hot spot for a private home and especially without input from the owners/residents (and I hadn't talked to them about it due to #s 1 and 2). I'm guessing that bird is likely to move on as the weather changes in the next week, but we will see.

Being a data nerd, I had to peek at ebird bar charts for N, SE, and SW Idaho, 10 counties each area, and they appear interestingly / slightly different…

N – doesn’t look rare during Sept-Apr

SE – doesn’t look rare mid-Oct thru mid-Mar

SW – doesn’t look rare Oct-Nov, Dec-Jan, with a brief “rare” window during interface of Nov-Dec



Just for fun, eh?

Of corvids, we’ve had only STJA (once for two days) and BBMA (daily for peanuts) at our backyard feeders

AMCR flyby often, CORA rarely so

If Carl really wants one, I'm okay with that for the Ovenbird but would prefer not, since hotspots show up any time someone browses the hotspot map..... I don't mind birders coming for the ovenbird but don't necessarily want people stopping by our house randomly until the end of time :)

I think the difference here is private property or not

Subject: [IBLE] Please use stakeout hotspot for eBirding the Boise Brant
There is now what eBird calls a "Stakeout Hotspot" for this bird and this
location. If you observe the Brant at ITD headquarters, please use the
eBird hotspot called "stakeout Brant 2019 Boise (ITD Headquarters)". If you
used a hotspot called "Idaho Transportation Department Headquarters"
between yesterday afternoon and this morning, you'll find that the location
has been renamed, and you don't need to do anything. If you previously
entered the bird from a personal location, please consider changing the
location of your checklist to this new hotspot to keep the map clean and
tidy, and to help others figure out when the bird was last seen. If you
observe the Brant at some other location in Boise, then it's best to use
either a personal location or other hotspot(s) (if appropriate). For now,
most or all observations have been from ITD headquarters.

Thanks to everyone for reporting this bird and good luck to those who are
going to see it.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Blue Jays
When I lived in the hills above Anchorage, AK the Steller's Jays loved
unsalted peanuts in the shells. I would lay peanuts on the deck railing and
watch the jays come for them. A Steller's Jay would choose a peanut to test
supposedly for weight, set it down if not acceptable and try another. Quite
often certain jays would test and choose up to three peanuts at a time held
crosswise in the beak, then fly off to cache them somewhere and return for
more. It was most entertaining to observe their behaviors in this choice of
peanuts. The younger jays would just grab the first convenient peanut and
go. I do miss the almost daily visits of those Steller's Jay's.

Brant Peoples,

Hoping this graphic survives cyberspace for its visual effects......

I pulled the trigger too soon when I posted the 1997-98 bird, for which all sightings were at Duck Island in Ann Morrison Park in Boise, and those ebird dates were:
15 Nov 1997, 22 Nov 1997 (RL), 20 Dec 1997, 28 Jan 1998.... all IBRC reports/records except for RL's sighting as noted

Odds are that this was one and the same bird, considering all were seen at precisely the same location, and considering the BNA annual cycle below for migration (outer darker blue shell).
Suggesting our current bird could be here much of this winter, maybe? hedge-hedge-hedging….

Just for fun,

Fascinating Blue Jay reports still coming in. My 3 continue hitting the feeder daily. I read T Watkins' report from Last Chance earlier today & just read the others. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a Blue Jay in Ashton, just down the hill from Island Park. So, the jays are visiting diff't altitudes & vegetation types from conifers to cottonwoods.

Tonight & tomorrow a snow front is supposed to move in, followed by high pressure with clearing skies & colder lows by the weekend. I'll be curious to see how many of the jays remain or if it bothers them in the least. The one from last year over-wintered at our place with temps dropping into neg teen lows & snows piling to sev feet on the level. Didn't seem to phase it, but I did keep the feeder filled. Keep the reports coming. Again, fascinating.

Either this is a strange fluke, or is the Blue Jay range expanding? Last winter, as I recall, there were rare reports of Blue Jays seen in Blackfoot, Idaho Falls, and Rigby, but almost always only a single bird. This year there are more reports of Blue Jays, and in multiples. Similar to what you’re seeing, over the past month or so our neighborhood (Cottonwood Hollow, Labelle, NE of Rigby) has been seeing multiple Blue Jays, and Steller’s Jays quite regularly. This week I’ve had 3 BJ and 4 Steller’s all at the same time.

Subject: [IBLE] Another great day
By the time I got home today, I had 40 birds (my fifth day in a row of 40 or
more), but then I saw the postings about the Brant being at the Idaho
Transportation Department (aka ITD). I had circled the grounds earlier, but
I think he was hiding. So of course I had to get back on my bike and go back
to ITD. That's where I met Luis (the photographer who gave us the original 3
photos) and his co-worker, Tony, who was the first to find the bird about a
week ago. They were standing about 20 feet away from the Brant, and I would
not have seen it but for figuring "these 2 guys must be looking at something
special." They were, and it was.

So Luis and Tony told me the GWF Goose was also there, but I again dipped
and scouted all the way to Veterans Pond. Then, on the way back, Paul,
another birder, pulled over to tell me that "my" Brant and White-fronted
Goose were still at ITD. This time I bushwhacked across the back lot at ITD
to find the White-fronted, giving me 42 birds for the day. When I got back
around to where the Brant had been, there was quite a crowd of birders,
photographers and ITD employees (who were wondering what all the excitement
was about). Who knows, maybe we'll infect some of them. ;-)

A great way to spend the day.

Of course, we have no idea what this bird will do, or when, but IF it's any consolation.........
The 1997 Brant at Ann Morrison Park has ebird entries from 15 Nov thru 20 Dec, and this assumes they were all the same little beastie

IOW it *could* stick around for awhile, eh? ja? =)

Optimistically speaking,

Brant - yes!
Scanned two flocks of Canadas along State - 40 birds in the center then a group of 50 just west. (Nr Vistor's Parking area.) No Brant, but checked behind the building where there were another approx. 40 Canada Geese partly on the asphalt, partly on much smaller (compared to front) grassy area. And there it was! (Thanks Marcia Lyons.)

It took off on its own (despite our care to not disturb it or the other geese), looped around and then joined the aforementioned group of 40 right along State St.

Great bird that I love from the coast but never thought I'd see in Idaho! Thanks for the finders and others from yesterday who posted on eBird.

Hi fellow birders,


I don’t often post but this morning from 11/18/19 aprx 8:30-11:30am a Brant was on the grassy field at ITD 3311 W. State St. Boise. We saw it on the field Behind the main building between the bridge design building and the sign shop building. At the back of the grassy field is an empty field with 2 small gravel piles on the edge. This is close to the Simplot white water area. Here r a few photos of the Brant. If I have misidentified it please let me know. It was/is with a flock of Canada geese. They did fly at about 11:30am but may be back tomorrow? Thx to my husband’s coworker Tony and also Tom M.

Subject: [IBLE] A special day of birds
I figured it was going to be a good day for birding when I discovered a
Merlin in a neighbor's tree, overlooking my feeders. But then as I was
leaving with my bike, I noticed a Robin-sized bird in another neighbor's
tree, that turned out to be a Townsend's Solitaire. Neither are regulars in
my neighborhood.

Things settled down for a while after that, and I accumulated 27 birds along
my ride. That's when I heard the distinctive call of a White-breasted
Nuthatch, who hung around "honking" for a little while. I continued on to
Les Bois, picking up birds as I went.

Then, on my way back, I heard the call of a Cooper's Hawk, protesting about
something. I kept trying to get a look at the bird when I noticed a hulking
shape in the trees, and I realized the Cooper's was complaining about a
Great Horned Owl sitting low in a tree. That helped to explain why
Black-billed Magpies would be anywhere near a Cooper's.

So now I had 35 birds, but the treats kept coming. The next bird was a
Pacific Wren, hanging out in his winter quarters that Jay Carlisle pointed
out to me a number of years ago. He even came out to greet me. (Or was he
complaining about my presence?)

Of course, any time I get near a round number (like 40), my BADD (Birder's
Attention Deficit Disorder) kicks into high gear, and I quickly added a
Pied-billed Grebe, then an American Goldfinch and an American Coot. But by
then I'd seen most of the "usual suspects," and I was wondering what I could
do for #40.

That's when I saw the Greater White-fronted Goose, hanging out with a bunch

Subject: [IBLE] Thanks Carl & Larry
Thanks for both your viewpoints, Carl & Larry. Will be interesting to see if any of the current Blue Jays overwinter from this year into next. Just refilled the feeder for afternoon & all 3 appeared within minutes.

Have to admit to mixed feelings of the possibility of Blue Jay range expansion. And, I was leaning toward the chance that we might be witnessing range expansion. But, I know Blue Jays feed on songbird nester eggs & hatchlings from previous experience with the jays in Texas. I also know that I would not want another songbird predator thrown into the mix, as spring songbirds already have enough challenges. At the same time, the Blue Jay is striking with its variations in blue color from turquoise to bright blue. And, definitely, the jays are not shy in alerting one to their presence! Qualities which make for a fun feeder bird.

All in all, however, hoping Carl is correct & this fall's Blue Jay numbers represent a noticeable irruption. Again, thanks for the great information & input.

Blue Jays move (presumably mostly out of Alberta) into (mostly north) Idaho each year in the fall. Some years it's a few. Some years it's a lot. This year happens to be a banner year with large numbers arriving throughout Idaho, including in more places than usual, and some making it as far south as northern Nevada, Utah, and southern Wyoming (below which they bump up against the breeding population on the Front Range). Montana is complicated because they have a breeding population (and some of our winter birds may come from there), but they also receive an influx during fall and winter. They are undoubtedly attracted to and facilitated by feeders and urbanization. While there may have been a slow range expansion over the last quarter century, this is much more a case of year-to-year variation in an irruptive species than a directional trend. Most or all of them will leave in the spring, although it wouldn't be surprising if a few eventually began breeding in Idaho (probably initially following with a big irruption year, like this).

We’ve had four Blue Jays visiting the feeders and generally just hanging out for about three weeks. Once in a while a fifth joins them. In the last week, we’ve had 2-3 Steller’s…occasional at first, but now regulars. A surprise invasion was staged by a covey of fifteen California Quail last Thursday. They have been back every day since then to clean up under the platform feeder. Also, new to the yard, a RB Nuthatch has put us on frequent rounds.

- Comments: "Continuing at 1398 9th st. Exn (9th and Christian Ridge rd./ 40.603935,-124.157321). There are several feeders around the neighborhood which the BLJA appears to be visiting. First heard up at Neil Palmer's house who was also the original finder of this bird. It would give a distinct "jeer" call which made it easy to locate when it moved into the dense foliage or into neighbor's yards. No obvious features or behavior that indicate possible captive rearing/escapee."

Subject: [IBLE] Greater White-fronted Goose at Veteran's
In honor of Veteran's Day, a Greater White-fronted Goose showed up at the
upriver end of Veteran's Pond. I was cruising by on my bike when I thought
it strange that a female Mallard would be hanging out with a bunch of Canada
Geese. When I got closer I realized it was definitely not a Mallard. This is
the first time I've spotted one in "my" stretch of the Boise River and
Greenbelt in years. The pond was full of Canadas today, as well as Gadwalls,
C. Mergansers, C. Goldeneye, H. Mergansers and A. Wigeons. And right after
seeing the GW Goose, I had a double flyover of a RT Hawk and a Belted
Kingfisher. (I love Fall along the river!)

Pleasantly surprised this morning to see a beautiful Steller's Jay busily
enjoying the cones in one of our many pine trees here in the sandy eastern
edge of Blackfoot. While they are regularly seen in the pine forests of
eastern Idaho at higher elevations, this is the first I have seen at this
elevation surrounded by ag fields and sagebrush/steppe. Hope he will hang
around. He sure was carrying on loudly, more vocal then the magpies.

Subject: [IBLE] Random Birding
Some random birding notes from past few days. Best bird at home was an immature Northern Shrike that I saw Fri, when I went down to river to fly-fish. Yest, headed up to cabin & filled tank at Dave's Jubilee in Ashton & saw a Blue Jay at a residence across from parking lot (my Blue Jay at home seems to have moved on). Between Ashton & Ashton Hill spotted a Rough-legged Hawk soaring above. As I drove through Last Chance, had to pull over, next to Henry's Fk, & count all the Trumpeter Swans...from one location counted 75 swans. The river is open & looked like the swans were taking full advantage of feeding on underwater vegetation. Got a few great photos with the river, swans, trees & snow-covered Mt Sawtelle in background.

As I got closer to cabin, I watched a Great Gray Owl take off from a spruce tree, sail across the road & head deeper into the woods. Usual RB Nuthatches & Mt Chickadees are up at cabin.

Cliff just called to have me post that the Rusty Blackbird reported on
eBird is still hanging out on the Henry's Fork at Last Chance. It's by
itself, upstream from the old closed down laundromat.

These aren't White-rumped Sandpipers. They're too short winged. Brown
breast and apparent pale legs suggest least. Would be nice to see the
bill...
