Subject: [IBLE] Pokie area Sunday morning
I checked the wetland along Siphon Rd (Chubbuck) this morning. It had no
ice and a similar diversity in waterfowl as the last three weeks but
numbers have decreased each week. Waterfowl included TRUS, CANG, MALL,
AMWI, GADW, GWTE, NSHO, WODU, REDH, RNDU, BUFF, COGO, and AMCO. A VIRA
called from the bulrush for the third week in a row. Other noteworthy
species included NSHR, 2 GBHE, 3 PBGR, BEKI.

The Pocatello Wastewater Treatment Plant pond had very few birds, but one
was an NSHO. 2 adult BAEA circled low over head, acting like they were
probably a pair.

The gravel pit pond on Hildreth Dr had most of the waterfowl mentioned
above, but also a lingering SNGO and RUDU.

Subject: [IBLE] Parvipes Canada geese?
About 4 weeks ago I started noticing a few Canada geese w/ noticeably
smaller bills and shorter/thicker necks among the typical moffitti/maxima.
They are also noticeably smaller than the moffitti/maxima but not nearly
small enough to be cackling geese. These smaller birds are similarly light
chested to the moffitti/maxima.

The first week or two I just attributed it to individual variation of a
couple individuals. But, this weekend out of over 600 Canadas I counted in
three locations, at least 15 stuck out as these small birds. This included
birds within flocks of moffitti/maxima flying over, standing along the
shoreline preening/loafing, and grazing in a pasture.

Can anyone advise on which subspecies this more likely could be? My best
guess would be lesser/parvipes. But, I’m well aware of how tricky ID’ing
Canada geese to subspecies away from their breeding grounds can be.

Thank you!

Knew I had an Accipter this AM, when all my feeder birds took flight & disappeared. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a 1st yr N Goshawk in the binocs. Its white supercilium, vertical brown streaks on the breast, mottled back & broad tail bands were obvious. Interestingly, an adult Goshawk was present earlier this winter.

Subject: [IBLE] After the rain
It has always seemed to me that birding is better after a storm, so I was
hoping for a good day today. I wasn't disappointed.

It started out with the usual feeder visitors, including a ton of Pine
Siskins (#3) but then the 6 pack of Wild Turkeys (#5) showed up on my block
and made my day. By the time I left on my bike ride, I had 10 birds,
including some very colorful Lesser Goldfinches (#9). When I got to Esther
Simplot, #15 was an A. Kestrel, followed quickly by a Merlin (#20). The
Muskrat in Quinn's Pond was the first I've seen there in some time, and a
nice surprise.

At Ann Morrison, I found a mixed flock of Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings (#28 &
29) hanging out in a tree near the fountain plaza. They seemed to be doing
some "flycatching," but I don't know what self-respecting insect would be
flying around in 40 degree weather.

Downstream, just before Veteran's Parkway, on the GC side, I found a Downy
Woodpecker (#30) and Ruby-crowned Kinglets (#31)on the way out and a Brown
Creeper (#40) on the way back.

As usual, Remington St. was great. The Lesser Scaup (#33) and RN Ducks (#34)
were followed by Red-wing Blackbirds (#35) and White-crowned Sparrows (#36).
Then a Red-tailed Hawk flew over (#37), followed by a pair of soaring Bald
Eagles (#38). Of course the gorgeous Red Fox that wanted to get into the
race track was also a treat.

And somehow I had missed on Gadwall until I got back to Esther Simplot, and
that was #41. A wonderful day to be out observing our feathered (and furry)
friends.

A Townsend's Solitaire made an appearance at 5pm today. It flew from the

Subject: [IBLE] Palm Warbler still present at Mann Lake (Nez Perce County)
It took 2 hours and lots of walking, but I eventually relocated the
continuing PALM WARBLER at Mann Lake, east of Lewiston on Saturday
morning. It was on the outer edge of the willows and other dense
vegetation that rings the lake a couple hundred meters beyond the end of
the model airplane area (traveling clockwise around the lake), near and
beyond the row of Junipers. It was not very cooperative during this
encounter, but it called many times from the thicket and allowed me a
glimpse as it flew away. Full list, details, and exact coordinates of
where it was seen are on eBird:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41871496

The Palm Warbler has been present at this location since I found it on
Thanksgiving day (at least). Other uncommon birds included a continuing
American Tree Sparrow and a small flock of Common Redpolls in one of the
Birch groves.

Good Birding,

Very cool sighting, Kit. I had 2 different juvenile Red-breasted Grosbeaks visiting my feeders this past Sept into Oct. Plus, the usual Black-headed Grosbeaks which nest on our place.

Now, with your sighting, makes me wonder if Rose-breasteds are establishing & nesting in SE Idaho? Time & further observations will tell. I noted the two that visited my feeders were not shy about it & became fairly regular visitors. So, I would expect your recent sighting to be repeated in the days to come. Mine exclusively hit the black-oil sunflower seeds.

I was surprised late this morning when I looked out the kitchen window and saw what I think was an immature Rose-breasted Grosbeak. It was definitely a grosbeak! Deciding between Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Black-headed Grosbeak was my only problem--realizing that neither one should be here now.

The first thing that caught my eye was that it was a larger bird than the House Finches nearby. Large, heavy bill, brown back and wings with wingbars, strong face pattern, and then what made me decide it's more likely a Rose-breasted than Black-headed was the pale buffy wash underlying the streaks on the upper breast.

It first appeared in the mountain ash, moving around from branch to branch and then flying to the mud room roof. I hurried to get my camera, but, of course, it disappeared while I was out of the room and didn't come back.

I visited the spring fed, Portneuf River wetlands along Siphon Rd
(Chubbuck) Sunday morning. Open water is still holding a very nice
diversity of waterfowl, including about 40 trumpeter swans, mallards,
American wigeon, gadwall, northern pintail (1), northern shoveler (3),
green-winged teal, redhead, lesser scaup, bufflehead, common goldeneye and
150+ ring-necked ducks.

This location holds half-hardy species in the winter and I was able to find
3 yellow-rumped warbler (Audubon's), 2 Virginia rail and a marsh wren.

on the christmas bird count a few years back, Ben Brock and I saw a couple in the bushes there by that fishing platform (south side of river). That area might be a spot for them. Thinking we should keep an eye out for them going forward.

Sounds and looks good for Winter Wren! On this bird it seems like you can
actually see a brighter supercilium and paler underparts as opposed to less
prominent supercilium and overall uniformly dark brown underparts as in
Pacific Wren.

Hi Robert,The birds you saw today at Wilson's are all domestic breeds. The duck looks like a Black Swedish. I'm thinking the goose is a Super African or a Super African hybrid due to the pink bill. Wilson's has two other goose breeds that are white and one other Super African. There are also a few other domestic duck breeds too.

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

Subject: [IBLE] random synapses and questions


Missy and I are still seeing an injured Snow Goose at the first dredge pond
on the S side of our local greenbelt (SW 7.3), about 1.7 miles west of
Glenwood, right wing is limp, and it can't fly? More and more thistle
monsters (siskins and goldfinches) are swarming our five thistle feeders,
but we're not yet seeing any redpolls or Lawrence's Goldfinches. ;-)

?? What are folks across Idaho paying for thistle seed? Best price we're
seeing is at D&B on Tuesdays (discounted 10% for seniors), $31.49 for 25 lb
bag, so $1.26 per lb.

We've been finding 35-45 sp along our local stretch of Boise River
Greenbelt, i.e., between Glenwood (SW 5.6 ) and Eagle Road (SW 10.0), most
typically including 13 sp of waterfowl, CA Quail, PB Grebe, GB Heron, 5-6 sp
of diurnal raptor, gull sp on the wing to/from our local landfill, 3 sp of
dove/pigeon, kingfisher, 2 sp of woodpecker, 3 sp of corvid, 4-5 sp total of
chickadee, nuthatch, creeper, and kinglet, starling of course, Bohemian and
Cedar Waxwing, 2-3 sp of sparrow, 1-2 sp of blackbird, 4 sp of finch, and
House Sparrow.

?? Has anyone been seeing any cormorants, osprey, or uncommon shorebird,
owl, corvid, sparrow, or finch sp along the greenbelt or elsewhere in the
Boise area, but haven't been entering them in eBird? Thanks in advance.

Happy New Year and Good eBirding,

Subject: [IBLE] W Siphon Rd waterfowl
The cold weather has reduced the open water in the wetland along W Siphon
Rd (west of Chubbuck) to a small pond. But it's value to feeding and
resting waterfowl is still evident. There were 77 Trumpeter Swans there
Sunday, as well as 246 Ring-necked Ducks, 69 American Wigeon and 82
Gadwall. Other waterfowl present in single digits included Mallard,
Green-winged Teal, Northern Pintail, Redhead, and Bufflehead. The
ringnecks were actively diving and seemed to be successfully exploiting
some good submerged aquatic vegetation for food. The Gadwall and Wigeon
were quick to try to steal any of this vegetation immediately as the
ringnecks resurfaced. They also stayed in the company of the swans as they
paddled their huge feet up and down, causing the water to upwell and bring
pieces of vegetation, seeds, invertebrates, etc to the surface. My fingers
were freezing but it was fascinating to watch!

It was a 3 raptor treat on Christmas Eve afternoon on the Boise Depot
Bench. My neighbor and I were in the driveway discussing snow removal and a
lower number of squirrels lately. Soon we noticed wingbeats and saw a
Cooper's Hawk overhead. A second one moved from one cedar tree to another
starting a series of loud screams. The first hawk had flown away. The sound
and actions of the one in the trees prompted me to think it was trying to
scold an owl. Sure enough, my neighbor and I walked down his driveway and
spotted a light colored Great Horned Owl perched in a pine. Mark has found
several pellets on top of his garage roof, a squirrel leg bone on the
driveway, and now the owl. We're wondering if it is the same owl with one
good eye that hunted squirrels in their yard last winter. I'll be on owl
watch.

The 2017 LC Valley CBC was conducted on Sunday, December 17th. Twenty-five
birders (10 teams and 6 feeder watchers) documented 93 bird species in the
count circle. Participants cumulatively spent 56.5 hours, drove 217 miles
and hiked 22.2 miles in pursuit of birds. Although the general impression
of count participants was that overall numbers of birds were lower than in
most years, we had some interesting finds. Highlights include Lesser
Black-backed Gulls, an American Dipper, a Snow Bunting, Gray-crowned Rosy
Finches, and Common Redpolls. The Palm Warbler discovered at Mann Lake in
November was also found on count day. The snow storm preceding the count
apparently pushed many Horned Larks in to the area, with 920 birds being
counted. Count week birds were sparse this year with only Common Loon and
Thayer’s Gull being reported (let me know if I’m missing anything).



Thanks to all those who participated in the count and Happy Holidays!

I've heard from a couple of you that you've received an e-mail from me today. Don't open it or click on the link!
If it doesn't have to do with birding then it's not from me. I've been hacked before and have received many such strange e-mails from several of you. I just delete them and notify the person. Just remember to change your passwords frequently. This seems to be a common occurrence with yahoo mail.

If you come for photos, pls try not to spook this mixed flock of mallards,
wigeons, wood ducks, can geese, and a coot. Our neighbor Bob is trying for
photos, but has only his cell phone...



Yesterday we had c. 100 bohemian with 20 cedar waxwings at our fruiting
trees, all three sp of thistle monsters and we're presently looking for a
fourth (as in redpolls) at birch catkins in our hood.
