I don’t think it’s a first for the State of Idaho however. In May of 2014 several persons, including myself, saw and heard an Alder Flycatcher at the Camas National Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson County (about 30 miles North of Idaho Falls). It was there for several days. I saw and heard it on the 24th of that month. I didn’t file a rare bird sighting, assuming others who had found it before me had done so.

I've been thinking of asking some questions too.

I track hummer feeder rates, retired but still a number crazed engineer, and ytd this year is emptying rate is running down 2/3 vs 2017, and last year was down a ways from the previous year. Frantic evening feeder use continues, but rates remain down. Using sugar water consumption to do abundance, my hummer flock is way down. Any thoughts or links to studies? I saw some comments on bird West Nile, but ??

My swallow flock is down too. I'll check species tomorrow. Bluebirds and house wrens welcome the lower competition.

When I was up in the park mid May, birds seemed a week or two behind, anecdotally of course. Any other delayed appearance observations?

Subject: [IBLE] ALDER FLYCATCHER in Boundary County


Hi All,



As you may have heard, I found and documented an Alder Flycatcher in Boundary County yesterday afternoon, which would represent a state first if accepted.



For audio recordings, photos, and more specific location information, see my eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/ checklist/S46514564 https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46514564


For handheld videos that I took of the bird, see my post in the ABA Rare Bird Alert FB group: https://www.facebook.com/ groups/ABArare/permalink/ 1888958301164804/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/ABArare/permalink/1888958301164804/. For those without FB, unfortunately I don't have a better way to get these to you right now.





My description, from the eBird checklist, is below:





****State first, pending acceptance by the IBRC.


Driving slowly with the windows down, I saw a Traill's-type flycatcher cross the road. Aware of the potential for ALFL in this area I got out to investigate, and noted immediately that the bird in question had a number of traits that I interpreted as highly suggestive of Alder rather than Willow, and especially rather than western Willow.
Among these traits were:

-The bird's decidedly greenish mantle (western Willow generally appears rather brownish), which contrasted firmly with its cool-grayish crown.

-A round-headed (or flat-ish headed) profile, rather than the distinctly crested look typical of WIFL.

-Dark, contrasting wings with clearly white, not brownish, wing bars. To me, this part of ALFL is more or less reminiscent of LEFL's wing panel, which is not generally something I associate with WIFL, who's wings are consistently less contrasty.

-A bright white throat, also contrasted with the grayish auriculars.

-Moderate to longish primary projection, similar to eastern but NOT western Willow, which generally has distinctly shorter primary projection.

-A smallish bill for a Traill's-type.

-A decently well-defined eye ring that would be on the far end of WIFL's range of variation.


The combination of these traits convinced me to hang around and wait for the bird to vocalize. When it eventually sang it was, well, obviously Alder. Recordings were made with my phone of the bird's ree-BEEAH song and also its pip call (which it took FOREVER to make), and were minimally edited.

Additionally, I got (somewhat shaky but workable) handheld video of the bird singing, and will add that after going through Macaulay.

It appeared to be on territory, so will be worth checking up on as the season progresses. The habitat was a fairly recent burn with extensive ~alder~ in the understory, and nearby marsh access. I think that there's a high chance that this bird represents a sparse breeding population rather than a vagrancy, hence deliberately looking for this species here in the first place. Please refrain from using playback here- the bird is loud and should be easy to find, and will probably be visited by birders many times.


The bird was working both sides of the road but mostly the western (uphill side). This checklist is more or less an exact location, but I also took a reading from my GPS: UTM zone 11 535856 5420129

Photos are placeholders until I can upload video.






Good birding,


Alec Hopping

The Idaho Bird Records Committee has/is reviewed/ing 3 records of Alder
Flycatcher. 2 from Jefferson County (Camas NWR and Market Lake WMA), by
careful observers, but not ultimately deemed acceptable for a first state
record. Robert Bond reported one from Coolin (Bonner County), last June,
and that record appears to still be under review. I know there have been
other reports of Alder Flycatchers, over the years (and it's a species we
should expect in Idaho), but I don't remember the Kootenai Co. report from
2000 (nor does it appear in the IBRC database).

Wasn't an Alder Flycatcher reported from Kootenai County, around 2000 give or take a couple years, along the Chain Lakes route? I don't remember the exact location, might be able to with a map, but it was near the north end of the route.

Hi All,

A potential state first Alder Flycatcher was reported from Boundary County, more information and video/audio forthcoming, approx. location with some details on eBird here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46514564.

There is also a recent report of Black and White Warbler from Boundary County although I'm unsure if it's still present or chaseable (but some information on that is ob eBird). This seems to be a good time to search for vagrants in the far northern part of the state (other possibilities include Ovenbird, Tennessee Warbler, etc.).

thanks, Charles.

I'll add that in the photo the bird appeared to be singing. Although the park is somewhat big, the song would be pretty distinct, making it not impossible to track down.
Good luck if anyone chases!

I just heard from Steve Dougill that he's found a Northern Parula in the willows at Blacks Creek - likely a female. He said it was calling a decent amount but not singing. They entered from the parking area on the E side of the reserve and walked in along the N edge of the willows - the bird was mostly about 50 yards from the western edge of the willows.

Good luck to anyone who seeks it (& keep in mind its supposed to get breezy later :-)

Subject: [IBLE] Great-tailed Grackle at Quinn's Pond
I had to squeeze my ride in between appointments so I was moving rather
quickly today..UNTIL I heard some crazy sounds coming from the brush on the
peninsula between the pond outlet and the river. A woman passing by with her
dog asked what the crazy sounds were, and I admitted ignorance, but there
was something familiar as well. When Susan caught up with me, she spotted
movement in the Russian Olive on the end of the peninsula. Finally I saw the
tell-tale long tail and I remembered where I'd heard the sounds before:
Great-tailed Grackle. This may be the first time I've seen one in Idaho,
definitely a first for Boise.

We watched the bird for a short time and then continued our ride. On the way
back we didn't hear any strange sounds and could not locate the bird again.
But what a treat while it lasted. Which is what I love about birding-you
never know what's going to show up.

Howdy,
While conducting a Birdathon for PVAS we found a Summer Tanager along the straight-away east of the headquarters at Camas NWR. It was in the cottonwoods above the canal about half way down the road. There were also many Western Tanagers and Western Kingbirds in the trees. We also found a pair of Blue-winged Teal in the canal south of the headquarters, as well as in the sewage ponds south of Roberts. Altogether we saw 104 species in a wonderful, but long day.
Good Birding!

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.

Wow! That makes birding Hulls Gulch very tame by comparison. Interestingly enough, though, I saw at least a hundred Cedar Waxwings in HG this morning, individuals and various sized groups. More than I’ve ever seen at this time of year.

In addition, the Barred Owl was present this a.m. also, and I was able to share with a number of people. Way cool.

Subject: [IBLE] RFI S. Idaho birding (Boise to Twin Falls)
Hi Idaho birders,

I am visiting Idaho for the first time for five days in June. I'll be in
Boise, and then driving to the Twin Falls area, and then back to Boise. I
guess I'm interesting in knowing some good birding spots to check out in
these areas, and in between. I like to look for waterfowl, shorebirds,
herons/egrets etc. and will have my scope, and also I want to visit
different habitats like mountains, foothills, prairie, etc., so I can see
as many different species of birds that are possible this time of year in
this area of Idaho. There seems to be a lot of e-bird hot-spots in the
area, but I'm not too sure which would be the best ones to go to, during
June for breeding species. I'm guessing most grouse/quail like birds are
hard to find in June, if some aren't I'd be interested in knowing where to
look for them. Are Mute Swans officially on the Idaho State list, or are
they just an non-countable exotic? It appears there's a lot of
woodpeckers, owls, sparrows, and flycatcher species around too, which would
be fun to look for. I don't know if there is any chance to see any state
rarities during this time of year, in this area, but I will keep my eyes
open, and try to get a photo, if I happen to find something strange and
certainly let you all know. I look forward to seeing and hearing many
western birds and visiting part of your lovely state.

My e-mail is <allie.m2000a...>, you can respond to me directly with
any suggestions.

Thanks,
Allie M

Subject: [IBLE] Jefferson County Big Day
Steve Butterworth and I have been talking about doing a Jefferson County big day for a few years. Yesterday we finally did one.

We started at Kelly Canyon ski resort at 4:20am to listen for Owls. We then hit some bird feeding stations near Heise golf course for hummingbirds and Pinyon Jays (no luck on the jays). We then went back up to Kelly canyon for the morning chorus. We hiked Cress Creek for juniper birds. We then drove to Mud Lake to scan for water birds. We then hit Camas and Market Lake for marsh birds and migrant songbirds. We also drove the desert for sage specialties.

We had some big misses, (no catharus thrushes, no Kingfisher, few warbler species, etc) but lucked into a few unexpected birds (Common Poorwill, Red-eyed Vireo, Common Loon, 6 Owl species).

A big day is full of compromises and trade-offs. An earlier date would have given us more ducks and shorebirds. A later date would have given us a few more breeding birds. We were hoping to get most breeding birds and to catch the tail end of migration, which seemed to work out. We had a great and exhausting day. We ended the day with 148 species. If everything fell into place, I think 155 is possible.

Subject: [IBLE] A lifer in Hulls Gulch!
When the Robins woke me up around 5, I wasn't too enthusiastic, but when the
Screech Owls chimed in, I decided I needed to go to Hulls Gulch before the
crowds. The first person I encountered was Amy Silver, and she immediately
asked if I was looking for the owl. I assumed she meant the Great Horned
Owl, so I acted nonchalant. But when she told me Mary Korkor had come all
the way from Wisconsin to find a Barred Owl on my doorstep, I got excited.

Amy gave me directions to where she had seen it. But despite searching for a
while, I came up with lots of other birds, but no BAOW. So I was really
pleased to see Amy still at the first parking lot, and she volunteered to
show me where she had seen the blighter. We biked back up the road and then
wandered around for all of 5 minutes when I realized I was staring at a very
calm and composed Barred Owl. Talk about soul satisfying views! But it
wasn't until I got home that I confirmed that my life list did not have a
check mark beside this particular owl.

And while I dipped on Gray Catbird (again), I did find the Northern Harrier
again, only this time both male and female, again being pursued by RWBB's.
Plus there are still W. Tanagers hanging around (nesting?) and the immature
GHOW's were hanging around with one of the adults, and they are definitely
the same size.

Hulls Gulch got really crowded so I headed to the river, but it was only
marginally better. Final tally for the day was 50 birds in 16 miles of
biking, including 7 raptors (W. Screech Owl, Barred Owl, G. Horned Owl,
Swainson's Hawk, RT Hawk, A. Kestrel, and Osprey).

But a big THANK YOU! to Mary Korkor for finding, and Amy Silver for sharing,
a wonderful bird.

Thanks for all the suggestions about birding hotspots. I didn’t stick around the house long enough to wait for your ideas, but seems I found one of the best ones with the help of eBird hotspots. I posted a photo on my eBird of the Barred Owl that I spotted at Hulls Gulch. I was surprised to learn it is rare here. Also found the Great Horned Owl family almost directly across the road from where the Barred was hanging out. Were it not for a distressed Mallard calling constantly, I would have completely overlooked the Barred.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and good birding!

Subject: [IBLE] A New One
Not a new bird but a new event that, fortunately, turned out fine. Adding the Oriole feeder to my yard pole and having a hummer feeder off the deck rail has been quite entertaining lately, esp in the evenings. There's at least 3 different Orioles visiting their feeder & a male and female Black-chinned Hummingbird (hopefully nesting) pair hitting the hummer feeder.

I was relaxing on the deck watching the action at both feeders, when the female Black-chinned Hummingbird came in. She fed for a bit & instead of heading back to her spruce tree perch, bee-lined right by ear, headed for the house. I heard a soft "thunk" behind me followed by rapid trilling chirps. She had impaled her bill through the sliding glass door screen! The glass was slid all the way open and the little hummer must have not seen the fine weave of the screen. I turned just in time to see her bill through the mesh as her wings beat frantically against the screen. Fortunately, the hummer placed herself in reverse, backed out of the screen & then flew to about 10 yards away to inspect what she had run her bill through and didn't appear any worse for wear. That was a new one for me.

It comes to the only house with feeders on Spartan Street in downtown Eagle.. Right where the position is in eBird. It comes to a bowl of peanuts on a pole in the front yard. You can park on the street with your windows rolled down to hear/see it. It’s very random when it comes. I met the owner who is very nice but I’ve always sat in my car. I’ve tried a couple times with no success but I was only there for 15 minutes at a time when passing by. Good Luck!

Subject: RE: [IBLE] Birding opportunities
Mary:

I can't speak for other folks in the Boise area, but my best birding right
now is happening in Hulls Gulch. This is a small valley (gulch?) behind
Camels Back Park. You can drive north from downtown on 8th St. and the paved
street goes by the lower part (on the left hand side). Then the road turns
to dirt and you reach the first parking lot, which is usually great in the
early morning. Continue up the dirt road to the parking lot for the
Foothills Learning Center, and you can then hike up into the sagebrush
foothills. Since I do all my birding from my bicycle, I'm not sure what the
birding is like higher up the dirt road, but it eventually gets into
Ponderosa pine habitat.

Another parking lot is located at the upper end of 9th St., and you could
park there and hike up to the Foothills Learning Center. It's a relatively
gradual slope for walking, but some parts are a grunt for an old fart on a
bike.

I hope you enjoy your stay.

Tom McCabe, Boise

Hi all, I am here in Boise and am wondering if there are any birding outings
this weekend. Any advice on rare birds being seen. Any great hiking trails
that are particularly birds right now. The migration in Wisconsin was pretty
crazy this year with warblers feeding on the ground because the trees are so
late in leafing out. Dozens of Cape May Warblers jumping up out of the grass
grabbing bugs for my May Bird Count. Weird.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Intriguing Hummer--Costa's Likely
Another update.
Jeanene got a video of a Black-chinned, and described it this way: "Here is a video, but this is not the same bird, her body is longer. I believe this to be a female Black Chinned. Also her movement is sloppy compared to the other female I saw. Ill keep looking for the other. Sorry for the poor lighting." 
That description of the flight seems to further support Costa's
Jessica Pollock, IBO's hummingbird project lead, is going to try to head over tomorrow to see the bird in person. Jeanene has said she is okay with birders accessing the area

Cliff, to your comments about Anna's: The thing that gets me is the birder who found it doesn't have experience w/ costas (she had originally noticed the small size and had been considering Calliope or even Rufous), but she has been able to now consistently photograph this bird among a mix of Black-chinned (she added more photos today)...that tells me it must be extremely small to stand out so much?

Interesting bird. Solidly green central rects further eliminate Calliope. Inner primaries look wide so it's not an Archilochus, which leaves Calypte. As for Anna's vs Costa's - tough call.

Someone should try to get video, hoping to record call note. And more photos.

I also sent this to another hummingbird expert/bander in the Las Vegas area (where people are constantly mistaking Costa's and Anna's for Archilochus)."

Cliff, to your comments about Anna's: The thing that gets me is the birder who found it doesn't have experience w/ costas (she had originally noticed the small size and had been considering Calliope or even Rufous), but she has been able to now consistently photograph this bird among a mix of Black-chinned (she added more photos today)...that tells me it must be extremely small to stand out so much?

Interesting bird. Solidly green central rects further eliminate Calliope. Inner primaries look wide so it's not an Archilochus, which leaves Calypte. As for Anna's vs Costa's - tough call. The straight bill actually favors Anna's but the really short R5 on the photo of the bird hovering more vertically is a good mark for Costa's. Clean white undertail coverts too? Someone should try to get video, hoping to record call note. And more photos.

Subject: [IBLE] Some unusual sightings
When I got to Esther Simplot Park today, I found a Western Grebe in Quinn's
Pond. While one had hung out at Quinn's for a while, and another had hung
out at Silver Lake for a while, I hadn't seen this species in weeks.

Then, at Silver Lake (Lake Harbor Pond), I found an immature male Common
Goldeneye, a species I hadn't seen along the river for over a month, at
least. I call him immature male because his head was reddish like a
female's, not dark green, but he had the telltale white circle in front of
his eye.

Still later, on my return to Esther Simplot, I discovered a m/f pair of
Canvasbacks on the main pond, a first of year bird for me. While I have seen
Canvasbacks along the river in prior years, my recollection is that it also
has been a while.

Finally, when I rode along the newly completed concrete path that forms the
Greenbelt between Quinn's Pond and the river, I discovered a Ruddy Duck
hanging out with the Western Grebe that I'd spotted earlier. He was in full
breeding attire, blue bill and all.

What's amazing to me is that for some time now I have only been seeing
Mallards and Wood Ducks along "my" section of the Greenbelt (plus C. Geese
and DC Cormorants). Lots of other species have arrived, but I thought all
the swimmers had already departed (including Coots). The last time I saw a
C. Merganser was at least a week ago, so today was quite a treat.

BTW, the river has been going up all week and today there was water on the
path between Willow Lane and Silver Lake. (Of course, last year this section
was so under water it had to be closed.)

Subject: [IBLE] Hulls Gulch redux
My latest foray into Hulls Gulch resulted in a couple more first of year
birds. While I would expect to find an Olive-sided Flycatcher in HG, I was
quite surprised by the Northern Harrier being chased by several RWBB's. He
was a male, and I haven't seen one on a bike ride in several years.

The bird gods were smiling and I left HG with 39 species and finished a 14
mile ride with 51. If I hadn't had an appointment in the afternoon, I
probably would have kept going. But my experience is that those last few
birds above 50 cost a lot more in terms of miles ridden. ;-)

Anyway, another great day of birding. And while I'm still finding Western
Tanagers, I have yet to encounter my first Western Wood Pewee.

Hi all,

On my way to Boise I've stopped at the Beck-Kiwanis Park in Ontario and
immediately found 5 GTGR (1 male, 4 females) that are moving and around
the bathroom and actively displaying. Lots of displaying. Only a few
eBird records out here previously so I figured it was worth a statewide
ping. Not sure where to post for the Idaho audience so if anyone knows
please forward this for me.

I recognized their sound immediately, so it was fun to scan the sky and try to see them much harder than you would think, lol. FyiJonathan Barnett, Horseshoe Bend

Hi birders,


This afternoon Ellen and I bumped into a flock of ibis in a flooded pasture west of Curlew Campground / east of the Stone Hills, and had one bird that looked like a pretty good candidate for Glossy. It had blueish gray feathering forming an incomplete line around the eye, black skin on the cheek, and a dark brown eye rather than red. I didn't get a look at the legs. Our eBird checklist with the specific location and a photo can be found here:


https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45885224


I know there's been more talk of hybridization over the past few years, but I didn't see anything to point to a hybrid on this bird. I'm happy to hear input from others if there's something I'm missing.


Good birding!

Subject: [IBLE] Suet Block
By trial & error, I found that the "berry suet" doesn't attract starlings. So, that's the only suet I'll put out now. I purchase it already packaged. There are multiple others but the "berry" one attracts only woodpeckers, nuthatches & chickadees. Plus, the occasional comical magpie trying to hover to nab a piece of suet from the basket. I put the suet block in a basket feeder & only from late fall through the winter.

Subject: [IBLE] A Difference
Today has presented a big change in feeder visitors. Appears all the Pine Siskins, Cassin's Finches & about 1/2 the Am Goldfinches have moved on during the night. The Black-headed Grosbeaks, House Finches & remaining Goldfinches are the main visitors today. And, the Bullock's Orioles have changed the pattern to visiting their feeder today.

Yesterday, they would announce their arrival with their call, perch in a tree for a bit, then fly in & attack both an orange half & jam cup. Today, they're stealth visitors. No song, still perch in a tree & then suddenly appear at the feeder. Then, they take off just as silently. Interesting. Maybe, starting to nest & trying not to draw attention to themselves. Others today have been Violet-green & Tree Swallows.

Subject: [IBLE] Nyjer bird seed
 Nyjer does not last forever and where I purchased mine they told me that after the same experience you had, that it does lose its 'appeasability' if it is not kept cool (they told me to keep it in the refrigerator) because the oil in the seed dissipates over time and warmth speeds that up..
I purchased a new fresh bag and instead of throwing out the older seed I mixed about 10-15% of the old in with the new and got my goldfinches back along with eating all the seed (new and the older seeds).
That worked for me.

Subject: [IBLE] Birdseeds
Seeds with a high oil content like your thistle & black-oil sunflower seeds can, as Charles noted, go rancid. But a year should be OK. I suspect the seed that I purchase now is from last year's crops, as new crops are just now being planted. I would guess, it's more migration patterns. I'm having a huge number of both Am Goldfinches & Pine Siskins hitting the thistle feeder to the point that I'm filling the tube which has 8 slots for feeding, everyday. And, that's unusual for my side of the state & location. I don't feed any mixed birdseed, too much Millet which attracts House Sparrows.

I fill a hanging platform feeder with black-oil sunflower seeds, the tube with thistles & now, an Oriole feeder. I filled the jam cups with grape jam & placed two "Little Sweetie" orange halves on the pegs yesterday & a male Bullock's Oriole has been hitting it all morning. Hope this helps.

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Does bird seed expire?
Niger (aka thistle) seed does get funky after a while, the oils within seem
to go rancid (this can probably happen to any bird seed). But it can also
take a while for finches to find it unless they are already coming to say a
nearby sunflower feeder. You'll get mostly goldfinches at the thistle
feeder in Boise (and they'll also readily take sun flower seeds). I would
recommend sun flower only in the other feeder over a multi-seed feeder,
throw the mix on the ground if you are ok with that.

Hit the birding at first light this AM. After last evening's torrential downpour (2 inches in 1-1/2 hr) thought the thunderstorms may have caused some migrants to sit tight overnight. Found all the usual summer residents, plus a male W Tanager, in fresh spring plumage that landed on the top of my Oriole feeder & allowed for a satisfying, long observation. Now, after warming up with a cup of coffee, headed back out to see if any Lazuli Buntings are around.
