FYI, looked for the Blackpoll this morning and could not find it, but it was a great day for a hike up there.

Subject: [IBLE] Custer County Eastern Phoebe
I just found an EASTERN PHOEBE at the BLM Cottonwood Recreation Site on the
Salmon River south of Ellis in Custer County. It was first located near the
horseshoe pits as soon as you pull into the complex and before the first
restrooms. It then flew towards the boat launch, and I lost it. I got
some photos that I’ll get onto eBird eventually and submit to the IBRC.
Quite a few other migrants are present.

Good Birding,

We also had our first Western Tanager in the yard yesterday and again today in Idaho Falls. Lots of color flitting around these days. Bullock’s Oriole pair, Blue Jay’s, Evening Grosbeaks, and Gold Finches. Could use some Lazuli Buntings if someone wants to send them our way. Only one a week or so back.

Another Blackpoll in SW Idaho - this time found by Robert Mortensen and Jason Talbot at Avimor (Spring Valley trail) this morning.  They also mentioned an intriguing mystery/unid’d warbler (I’ll let them weigh in as time allows) but that one flew over the hill & is torturing them.  They’re still seeing the Blackpoll as of a few minutes ago ...

Subject: [IBLE] Magnolia Warbler @ Black's Ck.

 

Hey ible-land, RL here.

Been suggested to me that I put out some directions to aid others in finding the ad. male Magnolia Warbler I just reported on ebird.

Here goes. It was associating with a very small, very active and very loose flock of Wilsons' and Yellows; whole bunch moving west to east in the farthest trees. This would be as you stand by the parking area/toilet facility up there on Kuna-Mora Rd. looking straight out or roughly NE. I came across it about a 1/4 the distance along in those far trees from the west end and followed it eastward until it disappeared in the heavy willows on the east end.

He was magnificent looking, just in the primest of prime condition. Got his id right off, then, as you can see in my ebird notes, I noted that he could be almost called a yellow-bellied YRWA. Some color patterns so similar in some way between this bird and parts of both Myrtle and Audubon YRWA's.

I don't know if either Black's Ck. I-84 off ramps are open yet, re-construction of the overpass bridges been going on this past two or more months. So I came down Kuna-Mora from the west from Pleasant Valley.

Was hoping our snow yest & rain last night would give some migrants pause. And wasn't disappointed. Finally, located a male W Tanager at the top of one of our yard cottonwoods.

The Evening Grosbeaks returned in good numbers this AM, as well. Counted a high of 15. Black-headed Grosbeaks are numbering 17+, with 5 male & 2 female Lazuli Buntings coming to the feeders at once. Yellow Warblers are numerous in the woods.

You need to shoot a consistent subject with various settings to learn what does what.

For instance I had Margie do a depth of field practice with several objects at ever increasing distance on the table and her camera sitting on the table. Then starting at the lowest f/stop number (largest aperture) I had her take a shot, then not moving the camera or changing anything else use the next f/ stop all the way up to f/16.

You can do similar drills with metering and most illustrative is if you shoot something back light or with shade and not shade.

I stayed about hour after Kathleen Lopez left. A few more people showed up but stayed in their cars because it was so cold. I never found it.

BTW, if you go to Foote Park on your journey, it is really muddy and wet on the north (?) side of the drainage. As you face uphill, it is the left hand side. The stream is running high and the path is muddy no matter where you go. The other side isnt so bad but it is wet. It was Flycatcher heaven there today. If you want to practice your ID skills, this is the place. I was never out of sight of a flycatcher for most of the walk. Very few were vocalizing. Definitely got Olive-sided and Western Wood Pewee. Would love to hear what others could identify. Keep warm. Ann

Have yet to see a W Tanager on our side of state. Keep checking daily but no luck yet. I did see one return yest afternoon, after I had sent my report to IBLE, of the Blue Jay to the feeder. Don't think it'll stay much longer. Visited to eat only 2-3 seeds & was off. Thanks for the info, Liz.

Tom,





You impressed me with 10 miles and 45 birds (or species?). The farthest I ventured out was to the end of the driveway to retrieve trash bins. I prefer to be a fair weather birder. Sadly, I have not seen any Western Tanagers on my walks between the Boise Depot and Hillcrest. Guess I need to shift to the Greenbelt.





Thanks for putting a name to that "disorder" (BADD). I like to think of it as a more positive trait of heightened auditory and visual awareness. HAVA or BADD, many of us are afflicted.





You'll have continued success meeting your daily goals, because you're out there every day. Keep on keepin' on!

Subject: Re: [IBLE] [eBird Alert] Ada County Rare Bird Alert

Thank you, Scott !!

I have empathy for eBird reviewers overall, their job being basically a thankless one for all that they do......across the U.S., across Canada, you name it, but when we start squeezing the filters it's like we're forgetting that birds have wings. A couple nearby examples that come to mind in support of your comments, are Highland Valley Ranch Rd and Shaw Mtn Rd.... you needn't drive very far, albeit with some elevation change (but almost insignificant per my perspective), and birds start hitting filters. If I were doing a similar drive in the Pocatello area, yes I see dramatic changes in vegetation (from sage and mixed shrub, into juniper, then aspen, then ponderosa, finally mixed conifer) but not here in the Boise area, so I'm like you Scott regarding our "foothills."

The eBird reviewers control their workloads in this sense, and I understand the need for "high quality data" but I can't help thinking "for what?" do we need so much compartmentalization? For much of this SW part of Idaho I don't see dramatic changes in elevation nor of vegetation to warrant squeezy tight filters... yes here's a patch of sage, and over there is a patch of greasewood, but, but, but ??

First thoughts after first cuppa tea this morning... =)

Thx again for chiming in, Scott, you don't sound grouchy to me, more like experienced, concerned, insightful, valuable to this conversation =)

Larry

Jay -- I am going to challenge you on this one a bit - though I will offer a caveat. I have lived in the Highlands area of Boise for 25+ years. So, not out in the "valley" but not "up in the hills". For where I live Evening Grosbeaks are regular in small numbers just about year round and every year. If I work out in the yard for a couple of hours any month of the year I can just about guarantee to have a flyover of a small number - one to three or so. The "irruption" last fall just seemed pretty normal to me. So, now that I am putting more and more of my sightings into eBird it just seems odd to constantly have to enter comments in for them because they are "Rare". I have come to accept that where I live has its differences than the valley as a whole. For several years there was a resident flock of Red Crossbills in the neighborhood. I have had Rosy-Finches and Pine Grosbeaks around the house in winter. I don't expect them in other part of the area any more than I expect Common Yellowthroats or Willow Flycatchers around here. So, the question is how do you recognize the diversity of whatever area eBird is using (which is what by the way?) without a bias due to population and reporting distribution. Again, I am not sure of the area used in eBird but it seems odd that Grasshopper Sparrow is marked as Infrequent with Evening Grosbeak as Rare. I think of the former as having a very small local distribution for a few months of the year. I am willing to be part of the solution here -- not just be a grouch. Just let me know what I can do.

I just downloaded my photos onto my computer and rather than a female Black-throated Gray Warbler, I believe I saw a male Blackpoll Warbler at Sandy Point this morning.  I am sending my photos to Jay for confirmation.

From: Scott Tuthill <satuthill...>
Subject: Re: [IBLE] [eBird Alert] Ada County Rare Bird Alert
Jay -- I am going to challenge you on this one a bit - though I will offer a caveat. I have lived in the Highlands area of Boise for 25+ years. So, not out in the "valley"  but not "up in the hills". For where I live Evening Grosbeaks are regular in small numbers just about year round and every year. If I work out in the yard for a couple of hours any month of the year I can just about guarantee to have a flyover of a small number - one to three or so. The "irruption" last fall just seemed pretty normal to me. So, now that I am putting more and more of my sightings into eBird it just seems odd to constantly have to enter comments in for them because they are "Rare". I have come to accept that where I live has its differences than the valley as a whole. For several years there was a resident flock of Red Crossbills in the neighborhood. I have had Rosy-Finches and Pine Grosbeaks around the house in winter. I don't expect them in other part of the area any more than I expect Common Yellowthroats or Willow Flycatchers around here. So, the question is how do you recognize the diversity of whatever area eBird is using (which is what by the way?) without a bias due to population and reporting distribution. Again, I am not sure of the area used in eBird but it seems odd that Grasshopper Sparrow is marked as Infrequent with Evening Grosbeak as Rare. I think of the former as having a very small local distribution for a few months of the year. I am willing to be part of the solution here -- not just be a grouch. Just let me know what I can do.

I only count species. eBird rejected my first entry because they said I saw too many Pied bill Grebes, so I never submitted again. I had seen 5 during my ride and I was told that was too many. I never understood. Anyway, I’m happy counting species. I had 50 today.

Tom,



You impressed me with 10 miles and 45 birds (or species?). The farthest I ventured out was to the end of the driveway to retrieve trash bins. I prefer to be a fair weather birder. Sadly, I have not seen any Western Tanagers on my walks between the Boise Depot and Hillcrest. Guess I need to shift to the Greenbelt.



Thanks for putting a name to that "disorder" (BADD). I like to think of it as a more positive trait of heightened auditory and visual awareness. HAVA or BADD, many of us are afflicted.



You'll have continued success meeting your daily goals, because you're out there every day. Keep on keepin' on!

If you live anywhere near Boise, you know that today was a little “damp.” For some reason, I thought maybe the birds would just ignore the rain and parade around for me. As it turns out, I had to repeatedly find dry places (few and far between on the greenbelt) to clean my bino lenses and even my glasses. Eventually the water wore me down and I headed home, but I managed 45 birds in about 10 miles. Highlights included my FOY Willow Flycatcher and FOY MacGillivray’s Warbler. Western Tanagers were EVERYWHERE. My conservative estimate would be 40 to 50 individuals that I actually saw, plus others that I heard.

As some of you are aware, I am afflicted with a condition that is probably familiar to all of you: BADD, better known as “Birders Attention Deficit Disorder.” This is when any motion in the trees, in the sky, on the ground, attracts your undivided attention, even when you’re in the midst of a serious conversation. Because of my BADD, I was constantly swiveling my head today, but only because every leaf in Boise was being hit by water and therefore moving. It was sensory overload. Plus, every swallow in Idaho was flying around my route, overwhelmingly dominated by a gazillion VG Swallows. It was like being inside a snow globe that someone was constantly shaking.

Of course, I can’t wait to get out again tomorrow.

Tom McCabe, Boise

P.S. The various weather reports indicate we set a new record for precipitation for this date in Boise. I believe it!

Jay and Larry:

There’s a pretty good size flock that seems to be lingering around Veterans Park. The other day they were in the grove of trees where the greenbelt connects with the park. Today they were in the trees where the greenbelt connects to Veterans Parkway. Noisy little blighters.

Larry/others

"Rare" in that in most years we don't have them lingering in lower elevations this long into May - thus, the conservative eBird filter to help ensure data quality.

We've also had Evening Grosbeaks (EVGRs) in our neighborhood over the last week, including one flyover flock of 25+, and of course others are seeing/hearing them in SW Idaho as well. I'm hoping these moderate #s are a sign that at least some of the EVGRs that irrupted last fall have survived and are making their way back to breeding areas.

I posted better directions on IBLE. It’s a cul de sac like area so hopefully the bird will stay nearby. Definitely hanging with the yellow-rumps.

Sorry for not looking at my photos sooner!! I saw him in the trees just north of the entry fee booth at the east end of Sandy Point—Right next to the green booth. The fountain is further north of the booth. For those of you who know Lucky Peak Discovery Unit with the entrance off Hwy#21 and large restroom building, Sandy Point is the NEXT right turn after Discovery Unit. Go as far as you can drive to the SE, like you are going to the beach and fountain area and the Corp of Engineers building.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Still Missing W Tanager
Had not seen Western tanagers in our hood in a while, then saw one on the
canal and a very wet migrating flock on Shalerock Rd late yesterday.
Montour WMA had some, as well as lots of flycatchers.

MacGillivray warbler left yard when the rain quit. Female black chinned
Hummer finally arrived. Yellow Warblers, Western King birds, Bullock's
Orioles and Black-headed grosbeaks have set up house keeping.

Believe the kestrel nesting box has been abandoned. Distressing. Had
active nesting up to 10 days ago. Have watched successful fledges for 8
years or more, some years there have been 2 clutches. I see the male on
occasion, but there's no chow time calling, no box visits, and I've
noticed starlings sitting on top of the box this week. So bummed.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Damp birding
Tom,

You impressed me with 10 miles and 45 birds (or species?). The farthest I
ventured out was to the end of the driveway to retrieve trash bins. I
prefer to be a fair weather birder. Sadly, I have not seen any Western
Tanagers on my walks between the Boise Depot and Hillcrest. Guess I need to
shift to the Greenbelt.

Thanks for putting a name to that "disorder" (BADD). I like to think of it
as a more positive trait of heightened auditory and visual awareness. HAVA
or BADD, many of us are afflicted.

You'll have continued success meeting your daily goals, because you're out
there every day. Keep on keepin' on!

Larry/others

"Rare" in that in most years we don't have them lingering in lower elevations this long into May - thus, the conservative eBird filter to help ensure data quality.

We've also had Evening Grosbeaks (EVGRs) in our neighborhood over the last week, including one flyover flock of 25+, and of course others are seeing/hearing them in SW Idaho as well. I'm hoping these moderate #s are a sign that at least some of the EVGRs that irrupted last fall have survived and are making their way back to breeding areas.

Subject: [IBLE] Still Missing W Tanager
Reading with envy the numbers of Western Tanagers from west side of state. Keep looking, scanning & listening &, so far, zero for me. I'm down to a pr of Evening Grosbeaks, from a hi of 35. They were, indeed, fun to watch & listen to for 3 wks. But, a silver lining, I'm back down to feeding my 1lb of black oil sunflower seeds/day, instead of 3! Saves a few bucks.

They have been replaced by Black-headed Grosbeaks, a high of 15, at present. 4 Pine Siskins coming in & at least 7 Lazuli Buntings at a time hit the feeders. Numerous Am Goldfinches around & a fair number of House Finches. Yellow Warblers are setting up territories throughout the woods. And a pr of Black-chinned Hummingbirds is hitting the nectar.

I haven't seen nor heard the Blue Jay since last wkend, but did overwinter. Perhaps, the same one as last year? Like to think so. Other yard sightings are: 5-6 Bald Eagles, 3-5 Swainson's Hawks, 2 Red-tailed Hawks & 1 ea Am Kestrel & Sharp-shinned Hawk on avg, daily. Lots of White Pelicans this yr & a good number of DC Cormorants. Just need a W Tanager to make spring...complete.

Subject: [IBLE] Damp birding
If you live anywhere near Boise, you know that today was a little "damp."
For some reason, I thought maybe the birds would just ignore the rain and
parade around for me. As it turns out, I had to repeatedly find dry places
(few and far between on the greenbelt) to clean my bino lenses and even my
glasses. Eventually the water wore me down and I headed home, but I managed
45 birds in about 10 miles. Highlights included my FOY Willow Flycatcher and
FOY MacGillivray's Warbler. Western Tanagers were EVERYWHERE. My
conservative estimate would be 40 to 50 individuals that I actually saw,
plus others that I heard.

As some of you are aware, I am afflicted with a condition that is probably
familiar to all of you: BADD, better known as "Birders Attention Deficit
Disorder." This is when any motion in the trees, in the sky, on the ground,
attracts your undivided attention, even when you're in the midst of a
serious conversation. Because of my BADD, I was constantly swiveling my head
today, but only because every leaf in Boise was being hit by water and
therefore moving. It was sensory overload. Plus, every swallow in Idaho was
flying around my route, overwhelmingly dominated by a gazillion VG Swallows.
It was like being inside a snow globe that someone was constantly shaking.

Of course, I can't wait to get out again tomorrow.

Tom McCabe, Boise

P.S. The various weather reports indicate we set a new record for
precipitation for this date in Boise. I believe it!

I’m from Michigan and miss the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks I’d commonly see there. I used to band them in Minnesota as well. I hope they continue to march west!

By the way, thank you for including where you live in Idaho. Often people fail to do that here on IBLE, and because I don’t know everyone contributing, I’m often left wondering where they have sighted their birds. It’s helpful when people put down their town or city name on their post somewhere. Thanks.

Subject: [IBLE] spring migration rocks !!!



I can echo recent sentiments expressed on IBLE by Tom, Jay, and others, maybe add a few of my own…….



I wasn’t expecting this little shift in weather I woke up to this morning, and it was awesome to get back to some of my routine… WinCo for groceries at 0515 hrs, followed by my first visit to the gym in months, if only briefly, it was great to be back, moving, again...



BIRDS were popping EARLY this morning, all across the spectrum (of taxonomic orders and families and such), this hormonal thing is intense, and with a little clear sky, orchestrations were in crescendo, like everywhere. Here in the wild wild west we are blessed with dramatic elevation changes and their associated habitats… when birds go quiet while nesting here in the valley, we can go up a few thousand feet and get a whole ‘nuther

intense dose of song! =) I “matured with birding” at elevations ranging from 2K to 13K+, and I can tell you that tundra is an exciting place to bird in mid-summer !!



I always figure that birders with an interest, or those who care, already know our usual “alpha codes” but if not, again, the ones I rely on are these… [ https://www.birdpop.org/docs/misc/Alpha_codes_eng.pdf | https://www.birdpop.org/docs/misc/Alpha_codes_eng.pdf ]

For me, easiest to remember birds by are their vocals, next are these codes, and last are their many specific field marks per se, maybe a geezer thing?



Yes, WETA are recently everywhere, but in our little patch of the Boise Greenbelt, others have ramped up in numbers and in “tra-la-la” as well, e.g., WAVI, HOWR, WWPE, BHCO everywhere YEWA are of course,

can’t even name them all

So many chattering / sputtering SPSA, BUOR, BHGR

Chats in strange places

A nervy YEWA caught me by surprise with a convincing WIFL call

Layers and layers of swallows on the wing above so many ponds, and lining overhead utility wires

Constant motion of herons and cormorants to / from local rookeries

Our local screaming SWHA(s)

Neither of the adult BAEAs were at their nest for the first time this season

Occasional flybys of EVGR, and a small noisy group of RECR caught me off guard

A couple of CAFI still using our feeders

Hummingbird wing-song of flight displays

A silly LOL moment watching a smallish doe foraging with 7 WITU

And finally =) my FOY WIFL at 0725 hrs this morning, whereas (absent one outlier) my recent FOY dates have ranged 22-29 May.



Meanwhile, the yard needs mowing, weeds need pulling, and my o rnithophilous (pollinated by humbirds in particular) seedlings of salvia and stache need TLC…..



This is your lucky day, because the above words are a condensed version of what I really wanted to post ;-)




Good boid’n !!

Larry

The basic idea is that birds initiate migration after dusk (most of our songbirds are nocturnal migrants) and then are grounded (i.e., they stop migration for the night and make do where they are) if they run into rain or even a strong weather system with very little rain but keep migrating if the weather is good. In my experience in Idaho, this phenomenon is much more pronounced in spring migration than in fall - and May is the peak migration for many Neotropical migrants.

The basic idea is that birds initiate migration after dusk (most of our songbirds are nocturnal migrants) and then are grounded (i.e., they stop migration for the night and make do where they are) if they run into rain or even a strong weather system with very little rain but keep migrating if the weather is good. In my experience in Idaho, this phenomenon is much more pronounced in spring migration than in fall - and May is the peak migration for many Neotropical migrants.

For example, on a quick neighborhood walk with the dog this AM, I eBirded 26 Western Tanagers (probably a conservative #), 3 Western Wood-pewees, & more migrants. In contrast, last weekend Heidi & I birded after a clear night and found relatively few migrants.

Take home message - get out birding when you can during breaks in the weather & you;ll be rewarded! I would guess there are currently many hundreds, if not well over a thousand, Western Tanagers in and around Boise - and just imagine the #s across southern Idaho.

Enjoy spring migration,

Jay

This phenomenon was clearly evident at Malheur this past w/e. I picked up a
dozen new species at H/Q from one day prior due to storms. Cannot ID this
thrush?

Hi, Just back from Malheur NWR OR, any thoughts on these FC's is much
appreciated. P-slope vs. Cordilleran, willow and unknown thrush.
(Swainson's vs hermit)
Malheur is coming on strong, bad weather but not too buggy yet
Cheers and happy birding, Rich

Subject: [IBLE] Observations
A few observations from this weekend. Have seen that Bald Eagles take advantage of soaring with large groups of White Pelicans. Nearly every larger Pelican group I saw the last few days had at least one, & in another case 3, Bald Eagles soaring with the group over the Snake River. Wondering if they use the Pelicans to hide themselves in, to make a sudden dive toward a rising fish? Or, if it's just that the same thermals attracting Pelicans, also attract the Eagles?

Another obs is of dandelions. I do try to keep dandelions under control in the lawn, but never kill out all. Have found that Lazuli Buntings, Pine Siskins & Am Goldfinches like the seeds in fluff. At one point today, had 3 male Lazulis all eating dandelion seeds at the same time. Striking colors!

And, lastly, learned a new sound. While the male Black-chinned Hummingbird was displaying to a female perched on the feeder, kept hearing distinct & rapid bell-like tones as it would buzz past the feeder, in addition to the usual trill of air through its feathers. Finally, found on Cornell University's bird site the exact description of what I was hearing. The males don't always make the sound and it's also caused by air rushing through the feathers during descent & straight flight. The male did this about 10 times, back & forth, over a distance of about 50 yds. His previous display flights to the female were only made up of trills. So, can obviously control the sound, just with its feathers & speed. Plainly...fascinating.

I gather several folks have tried w/o success this morning and it may well have migrated last night (definitely some new arrivals near our house so others could have departed). However, if you don't have anything better to do, I think it's still worth looking today - mainly because we got very lucky to hear a single chip note last night and it still took a while to locate the bird as it was within vegetation and not moving especially quickly. I know, easy for me to say since I was among the lucky ones last night but food for thought :-)

2020 Yampa Valley Crane Festival News


Dear Crane Supporters,

Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition (CCCC) hopes that you and your family are staying healthy and safe as we adjust to life during this time of COVID-19. While the human situation seems to change daily, we take comfort in knowing our Greater Sandhill Cranes remain steadfast in their yearly routine of nesting and raising their young here in the Yampa Valley.



Photo by Abby Jensen

As communities begin to re-open, we have been pondering what to do about the 2020 Yampa Valley Crane Festival. The health and safety of our community and all those who take part in our festival are our top priority. After much discussion we have reluctantly decided it is not prudent to go forward with this year’s festival as originally planned. Instead, we will take our festival –or at least parts of it – and go virtual.

We plan to produce a series of educational videos about our Greater Sandhill Cranes that will be made available for free through our website. The first of these videos, intended for elementary school children and their families, has already been completed. It can be accessed via this link:
[ https://coloradocranes.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=69a6baf882e3c8d0820cfad04&id=e4effcdb7f&e=e351ca0e4e | https://coloradocranes.org/programs-2/school-programs/educational-video/ ]

We also plan to take some of your favorite crane festival events and present them in an online platform during the 2020 Yampa Valley Crane Festival dates- September 3-6. We will be sending you the relevant information for accessing these videos and virtual events as the time grows closer.

All of the speakers who were scheduled to talk at the 2020 festival will instead be presenting at next year’s Yampa Valley Crane Festival, scheduled for September 2-5, 2021.

Our conservation work on behalf of the cranes continues despite COVID-19. While we realize that human needs must take priority at this time, we hope you will continue to support our organization and our cranes during this challenging period. If you are able, please consider a donation to CCCC. The recently enacted CARES bill includes Charitable Giving Incentives to encourage and support taxpayers to give to non-profits. This federal bill allows up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) in annual charitable contributions available to people who take the IRS standard deduction.

I must admit that I’ve been somewhat envious of the birds that people have been reporting lately, but today’s ride made up for it somewhat. There’s a set of “buggy” trees at Willow Lane athletic complex, and I’ve been finding some interesting birds mixed in with the Cedar Waxwings and the E. Starlings, including Cassin’s Finch, Bullock’s Oriole, and Cassin’s Vireo. But today was a topper. The waxwings and starlings were there, but they were joined by Lazuli Buntings, and my FOY Western Tanager and Evening Grosbeak. But the real kicker was when I was tracking a bird flying from one tree to another and saw a trio of White Pelicans flying over the river. I’ve only seen White Pelicans a few times in all my bike rides along the river, so, needless to say, I was excited. My final tally was 45 species in 12 miles.

Bill & Larry's recent posts re: numbers of birds was proven this evening. Old habits are hard to break, as I'm an old "Great Backyard Bird Count" observer & record highest numbers of a species seen at one time. This evening, was walking on the place & saw a bird fly up to the top of a sagebrush, a Chipping Sparrow, in full breeding plumage.

As I kept watching, saw 3-4 others. Then, took about 3 steps forward & the ground exploded with Chipping Sparrows flying up. Saw at least 30 in flight. If I had just counted what I saw initially, number would have been off by at least 25.

Point of numbers is well taken. Remember reading a study from Cornell about Chickadees & it was found that for each one seen, there are at least 5 others. So, the 6 I usually spot, means at least 30 individuals are hitting the feeders.

think most replies are meant for the group and many of those ended

Subject: Re: [IBLE] A Change, and default IBLE settings ??

I'm with you, Bill, on under-counts of feeder birds, because a) what we see at one time is just the minimum that are present, but it's a start, b) mark/recapture estimates (e.g., banding) almost always reveal that there are more birds about, c) studies of energetics (food consumption minus losses to thieves) also supports a higher number... but it's a tricky thing to evaluate, re: locals vs. migrants..... for hums, various eggspurts (tisk) have proffered multiples of 3x - 10x over the years, where x is what you might see at any one time... and the larger multiple represents a better estimate of numbers of birds present....so, is this perfectly ambiguous? haha

NOW listening to screech-owl outside my office window, and our local "branchers" (fledged great-horned owls) have dispersed from their home tree, with loud incoherent begging calls nearby

good morning, all

For anyone Interested the International site Crane Foundation is doing webinars on, wait for it, cranes. Last weeks was on western Sandhills and this week is climate change effects on cranes. Check their web for details.

One thought I have is a belief that feeder watchers way undercount the birds they see. The think the two Mountain Chickadees are the only two in the area while it’s likely a whole lot more are around, but we' unaware of numbers beacuse the speedy guys look the same.

Brian and I have traded emails on this for years. I think he has many more hummers than he thinks whennhe counts feeder visits. The advantage of hummers is ther is little competition for the sugar water in our area and you can measure how much they consume and use factors for rough number counts. I see maybe 30 hummers I think at the feeders in July and August, but the sugar depletion says 400-500 are using my five feeders.

I think think feeder birds are much mjore abudant than we think assuming we count them at our feeders as single individuals , let alone knowing how many of the ornery buggers bypass our offerings.

More male Black-headed Grosbeaks are appearing at the feeder now. A new bird for the season today was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

Subject: [IBLE] A Change
There's been a change today in birds. Cassin's Finch numbers are down to just 3-4, all females. And Evening Grosbeaks have decreased to about a dozen from a high of 30. They're about evenly split, male to female. There are more Yellow Warblers & Lazuli Buntings appearing. Also, a small flock, 4-5, Cedar Waxwings showed yesterday.

More male Black-headed Grosbeaks are appearing at the feeder now. A new bird for the season today was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. And, both a male & female Black-chinned Hummingbird are hitting the nectar feeder, but not at the same time. There's a Sharp-shinned Hawk which keeps the Eurasian Collared Doves greatly thinned. I rarely see more than 2-3 at a time & find a pile of their gray dove feathers about every 10 days or so. During the winter, the Sharpie adds an occasional Junco to his diet. The Blue Jay was here yesterday but haven't seen today.

wow, THREE county birds in one hour...... trying to imagine =)
personally, I'd be partial to that mocker as toppermost because I have twice as many obs of BLTE in the state (12) than I do of NOMO (6)

eBird is the greatest thing going for "looking back at where and when we birded and what we got and how much of it" ;-)
e.g., my highest counts in ID ~ ~ ~ ~
BLTE - 45 in Boundary County along West Side Rd, 15 July 2014
NOMO - 3 in Oneida County along Black Pine Rd, 25 July 2014

Late this morning Greg Lambeth of Moscow found a Black Tern and 5 White-faced Ibis at different ponds along Little Bear Ridge Road north of Kendrick in Latah County. I was quickly able to refind these 2 local rarities and new birds for my Latah County list. On my way back home, I ran into a NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD on Dry Creek Road one tenth of a mile northeast of the intersection with Davidson Road and exactly at the location of this eBird checklist: [ https://ebird.org/checklist/S68723903 | https://ebird.org/checklist/S68723903 ] . Not sure the last time I got three new Latah County birds in one day (much less one hour). Greg and Neil Paprocki have both refound the Mockingbird this afternoon. It looks like there is one previous report of a Mockingbird in Latah County, from near Moscow in July 2008 by Jerry Cebula.

Wonderful! But pity the poor goose. Saw my one and only bobcat in a tree
in our backyard above K Albertson Park in Boise years ago - thought it was
a neighbor's cat lounging on a limb - until the sun rose and I saw its
enormous paws.

But, better still in that first bench location were the hundreds of wood
ducks in winter lifting off at dusk from the west side of the park, perform
some perfunctory maneuvers, then speed back over the tree line to the ponds
below. Will never forget that.

FOY Nashville warbler on Shalerock road today, chipping sparrow in the
hood, and 2 pair of Cassin's finches here for the second day at the
safflower feeders. Who needs TV?

Hey out there. RL here.Earlier this P.M. I found a male Blackpoll Warbler in the SE corner of Pioneer Cemetery. There is a big tree in the SE corner about 20ft. from a grave with the name INGLIS on it. That is the tree where I last had the bird. I found the bird about 1400 and had it for about 30mins. off and on. It was very windy, all birds were very active and there are many big trees in the adjoining neighborhood. Lots of coming and going. I did manage to get a few photos. I've not yet looked at them. Hopefully one or two will be close enough to be able to id the bird when I post to ebird here shortly.Pioneer Cemetery is located on Warm Springs Ave. about a block off Broadway here in Boise near St. Luke's Hosp..There is no parking allowed within the cemetery. You'll have to find a place on the street. I parked on N. Ave. C across from a little corner park that has a Celtic Cross sidewalk layout.There is a gate from the park to access the cemetery. Walk straight thru, keeping parallel to Warm Springs on your right. Just when you pass the Cecil Andrus gravesite you'll see the tree where I last had the bird in front of you (see above).I know ebird has a site marked as Morris Hill and Pioneer Cemetery. That is wrong. Pioneer is not Morris Hill. They are in totally different places in Boise. There is a separate ebird Hotspot marked for Pioneer Cemetery alone. Continued Good Birding. RLP.S. Mark Collie called me. He had a possible female Purple Finch at Morris Hill Cemetery about 1300. Seen in the trees near a brick maintenance bldg. along Emerald not far from where we had the sapsuckers this past winter.

You are welcome.Got and read my latest SIBA newsletter a bit ago. Since there was not much birding news a few of the members wrote some "birding-from-confinement" type letters to fill space. Thinking about a "How I Came to Find a Blackpoll Warbler in the Wilds of a Boise City Cemetery" for next month's issue. How's that a grabber for a title?Leaving here about 1800 for Pioneer. Though the bird was not found this A.M. by several more birders that missed out last night I think I will just go because it was birdy yesterday. Also I was there in the middle of the day, see what a later-in-the-day visit can bring. This time I will make sure I have my cell along. You never know... bwa-ha-ha-ha.CGB. RL

That is the tree where I last had the bird. I found the bird about 1400 and had it for about 30mins. off and on. It was very windy, all birds were very active and there are many big trees in the adjoining neighborhood. Lots of coming and going. I did manage to get a few photos. I've not yet looked at them. Hopefully one or two will be close enough to be able to id the bird when I post to ebird here shortly.
Pioneer Cemetery is located on Warm Springs Ave. about a block off Broadway here in Boise near St. Luke's Hosp..
There is no parking allowed within the cemetery. You'll have to find a place on the street. I parked on N. Ave. C across from a little corner park that has a Celtic Cross sidewalk layout.There is a gate from the park to access the cemetery. Walk straight thru, keeping parallel to Warm Springs on your right. Just when you pass the Cecil Andrus gravesite you'll see the tree where I last had the bird in front of you (see above).
I know ebird has a site marked as Morris Hill and Pioneer Cemetery . That is wrong. Pioneer is not Morris Hill. They are in totally different places in Boise. There is a separate ebird Hotspot marked for Pioneer Cemetery alone.
Continued Good Birding. RL
P.S. Mark Collie called me. He had a possible female Purple Finch at Morris Hill Cemetery about 1300. Seen in the trees near a brick maintenance bldg. along Emerald not far from where we had the sapsuckers this past winter.

Subject: [IBLE] Toppermost this morning




Normally, it’s difficult to decide which was my favorite beastie of the day, but today’s was easy because it was life experience. I was watching a doe mule deer tip-toeing along behind a bobcat, and my imagination told me she was fixing to boot the bobcat into low Earth orbit, because maybe she had young nearby? but of course the boot never happened. Bob the cat was fixated on an adult Canada Goose walking across a grassy area. The goose soon appeared to be trapped in a corner of chain-link fence, too close to fly up and over, while the cat was in stealth mode sneaking toward the goose, who had, meanwhile, found a hole in the fence to get thru, but by this time the cat was moving quickly, found the same hole and lunged thru it faster than the speed of my brain trying to keep up, and grabbed the goose by the neck. The latter appeared zombified by these events, but was still alert, and the cat-with-goose immediately wandered into the understory of a mature riparian cottonwood stand and THAT was the end of the show…..



In a prior life I’d seen plenty of bobcats, but this was my first in Idaho since moving to the state eight yrs ago. Yes I got a couple of “year birds” today biking the Boise River Greenbelt (19 miles), but the cat & goose show was a first in my 70+ yrs !! =)

I just spent a few minutes working in the garden and heard White-crowned
Sparrows singing for the first time this year. I spread some finished
compost around and noticed there were tons of earthworms in the pile,
like red spaghetti. Ten minutes later there was a Hermit Thrush pulling
them out and devouring them. Kind of cool how quickly the bird noticed
the feast I uncovered.

Subject: [IBLE] yard work, yay =)




Among the many advantages of doing yard work this time of year are close encounters of the Trochilidae kind… e.g., Missy’s Black-chinned hummingbird is like an attack dog whenever I’m near one of its feeders, and BTW he owns them all. Rufous to me are different, kind of shy of everything *except* hummers. I’ve seen BCHU do crazy things, like a female once perched right beside a kestrel, as if taunting it; another got caught in a spider web and literally had to be pried out of it; and I’ve had to peel a BCHU out of the grasp of a large mantis; Nancy Newfield (master bander in Loozianna) has referred to BCHU as cussing faster than any other bird in the West… ;-)



There are other advantages of spending hours out on the back forty ~ ~ like hearing every avian flyby that’s loud enough to be heard ~ ~ ~ Evening Grosbeaks, kingfishers, herons, ravens, yada yada, none of which are “common” in our hood, although a Screaming Piha (Swanson’s Hawk) has recently moved into the hood.



116 dB they say? [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_piha | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_piha ]



This is a beautiful-calm-day here in River City, but yesterday’s weather was more exciting for its birds. That was a “good storm.” =)

Blue Jay still makes an early AM visit & again toward dusk. And have 1 ea male & female Black-chinned Hummingbirds coming into nectar. In fact, the female came in shortly after daybreak, when there was slush at top of nectar in the feeder. Fed for a couple minutes straight.

fast forward to 30 minutes ago I was working on my computer and suddenly 2 birds flew into my crabapple tree couldnt believe my eyes 2 Lewis Woodpeckers! First time ever in my yard, so Im a very happy camper right now

Best, Jonathan, Horseshoe Bend

(the wind was blowing pretty hard, so it was so difficult to get any good shot)

We saw a Leucistic Red-tailed Hawk East of Iona this past winter in January. It took a few minutes to figure out what it was! It was almost all white facing us but eventually flew down and up landing with its back to us! Then we saw the red tail.

Subject: [IBLE] Black-throated gray warbler
I heard an uncommon bird song late today. Grabbed my glasses and located a warbler way up in the nose bleed seats of our ancient front maple.  My list submission will most likely be challenged, but after comparing photographs of the distinct white eyebrow and under the eye, the blue gray back, and the song, I'm fairly certain this was a black-throated gray warbler. I spotted one in our side yard in October 2015.  Long time between visits.

I hope to be lucky enough to spot him again tomorrow.

IBLE Community,

I believe the bird in the attached photos is a leucistic female red-winged blackbird. What do you all think? Found this last Friday at Camas WMA in the east shelterbelt. It did not sing and was generally not shy. I was able to observe the bird for as long as I wanted, which was about 30 minutes.

Curious to hear opinions. Thanks everyone!

Awesome day, Tom, and thx for a vote of confidence, but I'd rely more on Jay because while I have a lot of experience, I don't necessarily remember it... ;-)

There's another factor we don't often discuss... not long ago several of us had this game.... we'd each play a recorded bird on a specific CD set and challenge the others to name all the background songs, chirps, calls, wing sounds, whatever, and of course I always lost because those other birders were quite younger than I was, and they could separate most sounds from the "milieu" whereas I had lost much of that ability...

Subject: [IBLE] FOY Joy!



Since yesterday on the greenbelt was so crowded (social distancing notwithstanding), I was happy to jump out while it was still raining today because that always reduces greenbelt traffic. I was not disappointed.

My first FOY of the day was a Spotted Sandpiper at the main pond at Esther Simplot. I’m hoping he hangs around for a while.

Next was a Yellow Warbler singing from the trees by the river. Never saw him, but he brought me joy.

Then at the lower end of Veterans Pond there was a pair of Blue-winged Teal. This is not common for “my” stretch of the greenbelt at any time of the year.

At Les Bois track I was pleased to find multiple Western Kingbirds. They have nested around the south end of the track in prior years, so this is a good sign. Also at that end was a pair of Bank Swallows, but the overflow pond that used to attract them is now grassy, so I doubt they will linger.

But the real treat was a flock of 10 American Avocets that flew in tight formation into Quinn’s Pond while Susan was watching. I came along a few minutes later, and they were out in the middle swimming. I had a vague recollection that they, like Phalaropes, swim, but I wasn’t sure. So both Larry Arnold and Jay Carlisle, my go-to experts on such things, confirmed that AMAV’s are swimmers. And while I was watching the Avocets, I realized that a Western Grebe, another FOY, had joined the mixed flock of Buffleheads, Cinnamon Teal and Ruddy Ducks that were on the pond in the morning.

Everywhere I went today, not only did I find the first of year birds listed above, but I also found lots of ducks, swallows and other birds that helped me to tally 51 species in 13 miles. A great day!

Tom McCabe, Boise

Our first Lazuli just showed up. They really love the cheap bird seed with millet/milo. I keep it up all summer, while sunflower seeds disappear, on my initiative, for birds in a couple weeks.

I saw Brian’s post about BH Grosbeaks. My theory is Evenings molt to BH because I don’t see both. Maybe this year???

I saw a pair of Sapsuckers yesterday and house wrens are bubbling. Maybe they will nest in garage again.

The Pygmy Owl continues it’s real early morning calls. I thought it was a Saw Whet until I hit the Cornell song site and figured out the difference. Regardless a tiny owl that would be nearly impossible to find and see up in the tree margin.

Subject: [IBLE] Evening Grosbeaks Continue
Like per previous post by Dave Pace, inundated with Evening Grosbeaks. Today, have counted 20+ individuals & 7 at feeders, at once. Cassin's Finches are running a close 2nd. And the American Goldfinches are in full breeding plumage & crowd the feeder in-between times, when the larger Finches make room. I've gone through 3 lbs of black-oil sunflower seeds today alone & will fill again before evening.

Also, 2 of my favorite spring birds arrived today, both males, at the feeders. A Lazuli Bunting & Black-headed Grosbeak. A female Black-chinned Hummingbird is regularly hitting its feeder today. And, the Blue Jay continues to sneak black-oil sunflower seeds from the feeder. But, by far, the most vocal, semi-tame acting & frequent visitors, are the Evening Grosbeaks.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Hummingbird Feeder

I'll bite.... =)

Thx for an irresistible invite, Bill... ;-) I have about six different kinds of feeders, mostly dating from CO, NM, UT places where we fed a LOT more hums. Ruthann, that feeder you illustrated was always one of my favorites (and the hummers' favorite at times). The PP feeders Bill uses are also favorites of mine when feeding more hummers, and they've been redesigned to be easier to clean.... I guess my first suggestion is not to make sugar-water stronger than 1:4 because that's more likely to attract bees, wasps, ants, earwigs (in our yard anyway) and it doesn't help to have a neighbor with *very*active* bee hives (they can really swarm at times, ugh). Just plain sugar and just plain water, in clean feeders every 2-3 days at these temperatures. I use a little Vaseline near the tops of hangers to defeat ants and earwigs, works pretty good, doesn't impact hums. And Bill, re insect spray..... I hate doing that too, but I visited a guy in Nogales AZ who had no choice, and the master-banders thereabouts knew he was doing it.... I stayed with him a couple times when he got old enough to need help with his 130 humfeeders, going thru 15 gallons of SW a day, and we accounted for losses to nectar thieves, esp the bats at night.... we either took the feeders in or covered them with shower curtains, because the banders at UAZ Tucson were doing an energetics analysis to estimate the number of hummingbirds he was feeding.... any guesses, anyone?? =)

I’m sure Larry will have some suggestions. I use 4 cup Perky Pet wide mouth glass feeders and have 4-5 up in July and August and am very happy with them. We also have a hornet problem in late summer.

I’m sure bird purists will be aghast at my wasp solution but it seems to work. I spray the feeders with wasp spray and try to keep spray away from ports as much as possible and feature the neck and underside. I feared the birds would be hurt or stay away from the poison/stink, but I’m usually desperate from all the wasps/ants.What I think I see is the birds still come in huge numbers and the wasp infestation slows down, maybe I’ll sign anonymously. We get nests in lots of odd places, including in door/mirror of plow truck, and while the sugar is a prime food I think there’s plenty of food for them to live off of.

Subject: [IBLE] Hummingbird!
Today, after reading reports of hummingbird arrivals, filled my feeder as noted in earlier post. I've had several visits to the nectar now by a female Black-chinned. In reading responses re: wasps & earwigs, I can offer my solutions.

I use a swivel arm, hooked-pole that clamps to top rail of deck to hang my feeder from. My biggest problem is from earwigs, as another response noted. So, I use sticky, double-sided tape & wrap about a 3" section, halfway up the pole. Kind of grim, but, end of earwigs making it to the feeder. Have to change the tape about once a week. The wasps, as also noted in another response, aren't too much of a problem until fall. And the hummers & wasps will have some battles, but they're never the problem the earwigs have been.

In other news, the numbers of Cassin's Finches have been more than in years. Had almost forgotten how beautiful the males are with their purple-red heads/breasts fading to white & partial crest. The Evening Grosbeaks numbers have been another treat. Also, good numbers of White-crowned Sparrows are now showing. A good day.

Hello Ruth,

I feel your pain. Hope the following doesn't violate any IBLE parameters. I
will add that I just heard the first rufous hummingbird buzz through the
backyard! I didn't have enough time to tell him he's late!

If they are European paper wasps, the type which haunt our hummingbird
feeders not too different from yours, they are horrid insects defined by
their long legs and little waist. They would decimate our wine grape
vineyard in a matter of days. My husband has come up with a homemade trap
that combines grape juice or bad wine, yeast, sugar or fructose, maybe some
jam, and water, and that traps them out fairly successfully. You have to
catch the queens now. It takes time. We routinely seek out the nests during
summer and destroy them.

What plagues our hummingbird feeders are earwigs. We have not figured out
any kind of biodynamic control. Sigh.

Good luck!!!

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 feel the same way. Things ain't right until the yellow breasted chat
shows up on the hill. He is the next to the last summer songbird who
sticks around - black headed grosbeaks come in a week later. Mr. Chat
shows up the same day as lazuli buntings. Things seemed backwards this
year. First hummer and lazulis today - no chat - bullocks oriole two days
ago - no rufous hummers which is truly weird - just feels off. However,
rejoicing in the yellow warblers in the tree tops!

Subject: [IBLE] FOY Lazuli Buntings
I woke up to see 5 transitioning-plumage male Lazuli Buntings at my feeder this morning first day of arrival!
Made me very happy. The Lazuli Bunting was my spark bird 45 years ago (May 1975).
Black-headed Grosbeaks shouldnt be far behind

Enjoy this beautiful dayJonathan, Horseshoe Bend
