I tried to become enlightened by checking ebird bar graphs for BADO occurrence in Ada and Canyon Counties, both 1900-2020 and last ten years only...

https://ebird.org/barchart?byr=2010&eyr=2020&bmo=1&emo=12&r=US-ID-001,US-ID-027

nothing popped, I'm not yet enlightened, and nothing is clarified, other than it looks like a wintering sp hereabouts

FWIW

Hard to say if more are breeding close by then a decade ago but this species is known to have undergone a MAJOR range expansion over the last 50+ years.

Barred seem to be popping up all over the city in the last couple of years. Last year at Heron Cove off Park Center, at Shakespeare and at Barber Park and I heard also Hulls Gulch. What do you think Jay are they breeding close by now or just more of them migrating in for the winter?

Barred seem to be popping up all over the city in the last couple of years. Last year at Heron Cove off Park Center, at Shakespeare and at Barber Park and I heard also Hulls Gulch. What do you think Jay are they breeding close by now or just more of them migrating in for the winter?

Subject: [IBLE] Winter Raptor Survey Project
HI Everybody,

I have made postings to IBLE in the past regarding availability of raptor survey routes for the Winter Raptor Survey Project, a very extensive citizen science project sponsored by the East Cascades Audubon Society based in Bend, OR. This is our 17th survey season and we now have over 450 routes that are surveyed throughout OR, ID, WA, and a small part of northern CA and northeastern UT.

As a review, we ask that project volunteers commit to once a month surveys for December through February. These surveys can be done on a day that fits your monthly life schedule. You would need to have at least a pair of binoculars to view distant birds and if you have a spotting scope even better but not required. You should also have a good working ID knowledge of the more common species of raptors that frequent your area.

The following routes are still available if you have the desire to survey birds of prey for us this winter:

DeSmet - Tensed 72 miles
Churchill - Oakley 68 miles
Rupert North 69 miles
Rupert East - Minidoka 55 miles
Burley SW 54 miles
Burley SE 31 miles
Paul 65 miles
Minidoka NW 68 miles
American Falls SW 44 miles
American Falls - Rockland 78 miles

If you live near one of these areas and are interested in joining this project, please email me as soon as you can as this will be the last advertisement of these routes for this winter. I will be happy to hear from you and more than happy to get you prepared for the survey work that you will be doing :). This is a great way to get out during the doldrum winter months and do some raptor watching, hope to hear from you soon, thanks! :)

Subject: [IBLE] Closer to home
It's not on the order of a Common Crane, but today I had a Merlin perched in
a tree a half block away. Still not seeing them every day, so still a treat.

On the other hand, an OSPREY along the Boise River was a bigger treat. I had
just finished scanning Silver Lake and was heading upriver when I saw a
large bird perched overlooking the river. This is an area where I frequently
get Great Blue Herons and Bald Eagles, so I stopped to glass him. Since I
kept getting an impression of white on his head, but he wasn't big enough to
be a Bald, I had to wade into the shrubbery to get closer to him. I started
into the brush across from the entrance to the Lake River gated community,
and I quickly discovered that there's a pretty defined trail system between
the greenbelt and the river. Once I got close enough to get details, it was
clearly an Osprey, my first in many weeks. We've had them stay late before,
but this is the first I've seen this late in years.

So if you live in the Boise area, keep your eyes peeled.

Tom McCabe, Boise

Jay, did some looking into and and learned some crane facts. Correct if I’m
wrong. Cranes usually migrate by day and may only cover 200 miles a day,
relying on updrafts to gain altitude and then glide. If so, we can
perimeter potential progress and look for corresponding feeding areas. BTW,
one species migrates over the Himalayas at an altitude of 26,000 feet!

Good Strategy Carter !!! =)

I know this is a stretch ( for comparative purposes ), but our CO first state record Lawrence's Goldfinch disappeared for a few days, TWICE during its two-month stay in Grand Junction, visiting our thistle feeders, but it did keep returning... the way we knew this was because many people from across the country were looking for this bird every day and were entering notes in our journal.... seems that our bird had settled into a daily schedule of sorts, so might this Crane? Pls note, however, that was during breeding season for Carduelis species in western U.S.. Different deal here, but who knows?

Hey all,

I just wanted to add some thoughts on the possible whereabouts of the bird. While I do think this bird could be on it's way out, I'm not convinced. It disappeared for a while the first day and was refound. It has proved to be mobile and moves around throughout the day. It does seem to return to the one field however. If it is not seen today I will be out there early tomorrow to check.

From: Carl Lundblad <carl.lundblad...>
Subject: [IBLE] Common Crane Continues: 20 November
Jacob Briggs reports (on Facebook) that the Common Crane was still present
(and eventually flew elsewhere) near Fairfield this morning. Jacob's full
post follows:
"My father and I found the crane just after 9am today at about these
coordinates: 43.300005,-114.732729 . We observed him feeding in a field for
about 25 minutes. He eventually flew high out of the field and headed
southwest.
I watched the bird in my binoculars until it was no longer visible in some
fog. Quite a few birders showed up after that so hopefully it will be
relocated."

Thanks to Jacob and everyone for the continued updates.

Good Birding,

Carl Lundblad
Moscow, Idaho

Thanks for the eBird tips, Carl.

Find if I just type "Ada" and add a comma it prompts for Ada, Idaho. Bingo!
Like Larry, I noticed the "Top100" button is there on the Explore page.

Hi Larry,
It's not clear to me what page you are looking at, but from the Ada County overview page (Explore Regions -> Ada County) the Top 100 (now labeled "Top eBirders") is on the right hand side underneath "Top Media" and "Recent Visits".

I'm happy to help more if you can provide additional clarification.

Hey everybody,

I am unsure if anyone has looked for the bird today yet but I'll let people

I am getting lots of requests for updates so if anyone is considering
looking today or already has, updates here would be greatly appreciated,
thanks.

There was a Common Crane in California just south of Lakeview, OR off Highway #395 this past August. It was there (with a large number of Sandhill Cranes) for several weeks—can’t access eBird data at this time. Here is a long distance photo (hand held) to give you all some idea of what you are looking for.

Hey all,
Eurasian Crane is another name for Common Crane (scientific name Grus grus). There’s usually only one or so in the entire continent per year, and typically in western Alaska, so that’s why it’s not in a lot of field guides. ABA rarity code 4.

Hi all! I have refound the Common Crane today in Fairfield!

For those interested in chasing I will post a pin. Please be very mindful
of private land and only view the bird from public roads. Also please note
that it has been raining all night and the roads are muddy, please be very
careful as not make ruts in the road.

From: Carl Lundblad <carl.lundblad...>
Subject: [IBLE] Nez Perce County and Blue Jay Accounting
I birded in Nez Perce County on Saturday 11/14. The most notable sighting
was a very late COMMON YELLOWTHROAT where Volmer Road crosses Tammany Creek
just south of Lewiston (https://ebird.org/checklist/S76254063). Also at
this location was a (locally uncommon, mostly in fall) Marsh Wren, which I
also saw at this location on 11 November 2017. I first started checking
this spot hoping it would attract a Swamp Sparrow, but I'll settle for
November Yellowthroats and Marsh Wrens. The Yellowthroat appears to be the
latest in eBird for North Idaho and third latest for the entire state,
however we've had several November records in recent years.

Elsewhere, a Golden Eagle on nearby Rosenkrantz Road is always a nice bird,
locally. I found at least 4 of the continuing BLUE JAYS along south
Seventh Street north of Jewett Park in Lewiston with a flock of Audubon's
and one Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler. Hell's Gate State Park was
characteristically enjoyable, but the most unusual bird was another MARSH
WREN (only my second at this location). I skipped most of the campground
area due to noisy leaf blowers. Late in the afternoon, Mann Lake had ~1200
Mallards minus one after a PEREGRINE FALCON came though, and a rather small
flock of SNOW GEESE was flying in from a nearby field as I left.

I also spent some time exploring the lower forests and mostly open country
around the north, west, and northwest sides of Craig Mountain and portions
of the Palouse south of Genesee, without seeing anything very notable.

One late report to add to this year's impressive BLUE JAY count, at least
two were in residential Genesee (Latah County) on November 8. Other groups
of 2-5+ Blue Jays apparently continue in Moscow, Pullman (apparently
multiple groups), Lewiston, Asotin, Lenore Idaho (Nez Perce County), and no
doubt there are other groups and singletons throughout the region.

Good Birding,

Carl Lundblad
Moscow, Idaho

Interesting you mentioned that Vesper Sparrow. I called one April 19, 2019. Of all the birds I’ve seen on that route, that is the one call I doubt the most. I was hoping Jay would spot one this year and at least validate the possibility of a VESP.



Two observations:

a. I have 98 species on the list during 5 years of walking that route. It would be over 100 if I was better at identifying gulls (always “gull sps.) and female hummingbirds! I am surprised at the variety of birds present in the neighborhood. I never thought I would break 25 species. A daily walk is good for your soul and eBird. I encourage anyone to select a patch that is easy to access and start recording. You will be amazed at what you see.
b. Having Jay in the neighborhood walking the same route heightens your awareness when you stop and chat and he says, “Hey, did you just hear those Red Crossbills?” or “Clark’s Nutcrackers just flew by!” He makes you “play-up” and strive to do better.

I'm impressed too, because my life list along the Boise River Greenbelt (my eBird patch, Missy's eBird patch) includes a mere 14 sp of sparrows over eight yrs, 1738 complete checklists, and just this morning I mentioned to Missy that we really should be looking at sparrows a little more closely, ha !!!

Subject: Re: [IBLE] Some interesting birds
Hey all, RL here... again.Jason Talbot and I birded Elmore and Owyhee Co.'s Wednesday on our Veteran's Day push. All along the river we noticed goldeneye most everywhere. A few clumps and smaller scatterings of them on the river from Grandview on up to about a mile below the dam but almost none from the island, where the recent Black Scoter was found, to the dam. Two good-sized rafts on the big water behind CJ dam but essentially none above that to Jack's Ck..Possibly the really big numbers have yet to arrive.My real curiosity is the numbers of Snow Geese that I have been seeing on the several trips I have made to the area recently. The over-swampingly number of them have been flyovers moving SE at altitude with only a relative few on land or the water. My curiosity is what is bringing them here to SW Idaho this time of year. We normally wouldn't seethese numbers until starting in January. Could one possibility be that the OR and CA fires are pushing them out of their normal flyway? I don't think it is the weather so much as might be expected with smaller birds?CGB. RL----- Original Message -----

They were frequent dependable visitors in winter on the north channel of Plantation Island, at least when we lived there in the 90s.
The day the pandemic was declared, March 11th to be exact, I was birding with two friends at the Shakespeare festival grounds. We saw both species of goldeneyes. That seems worlds away. Did see one the other day, a single male Barrows, at the new F&G Dick Knox ponds due to open soon here in Emmett.

Subject: [IBLE] Some interesting birds
As I was crossing the bridge from Plantation Island to the stables at Les
Bois, I heard the distinct sound of a Blue Jay. Since I hadn't seen or heard
any of the critters for at least a week, if not longer, I got focused
immediately. He kept calling and calling, but remained hidden until finally
flying up to the top of the trees on the other side of the river channel,
still on the island. I got great looks before the bird flew off to the north
side of the river.

And yesterday I again encountered the bird I originally called a Eurasian
Wigeon. After getting better views, I'm leaning towards an American/Eurasian
hybrid. While it has the red head of the Eurasian, it still has the green
eye stripe of the American. It was in the same location as before, the pond
between Lander St. and the greenbelt. I couldn't find it today.

The immature Snow Goose continues to pop up at Esther Simplot Park (ESP)
every few days. While I didn't see it today, it has been there in the last
couple of days.

In addition, a Merlin has started to show up at ESP. Again, I do not see it
every day, but I pass through on my rides and don't hang out there. He was
there today, in a large dead tree by the artificial island they built in the
river, but I have seen him all around the park.

Finally, I got a call from Dr. Koob, a local veterinarian, who told me that
the Ruth Melichar Bird Center will be working at rehabbing a Surf Scoter
that was found nearby. So keep your eyes peeled in case there are more
around. I found one at Silver Lake years ago, and I was so shocked I almost
dropped my binos. That bird hung out for a few days in Boise and a couple
more days in Eagle.

Always amazed at how semi-tame Pine Grosbeaks seem. Was at cabin for a couple days & walked into a flock of Pine Grosbeaks. Rounded a corner & a half dozen were feeding in low bushes just 6 ft away. Too close to focus with binocs. Here, at home, Blue Jay continues, others: RB Nuthatch, Pine Siskins, Am Goldfinches, BC Chickadees & House Finches.

I finally saw my first Blue Jay in Idaho (twice)! I saw it November 4th in
the afternoon and again on November 6th mid-morning. Both times it was in
the southwest corner of the yard of the house that is directly east of the
gas station that is right off the freeway. Both times it was making a lot
of noise which alerted me to its presence. Both times it flew off to the
northwest. The first day I saw it had an acorn in its bill. I also saw the
great-tailed grackles that hang out at the gas station and in the trees
south of the gas station.

You can select the day that you want to do your surveys based on your own life schedules. Volunteers should have a good working knowledge of at least the more common raptor species in your area and of course be willing to learn more about this great family of birds :). You should have at least a pair of binoculars and if you have a spotting scope even better but not required. You should also be comfortable with winter driving conditions, our project has a super driving track record.

For a more detailed account of the project, I prepared a power point presentation that can be found on the ECAS website at: ecaudubon.org that will provide a comprehensive history of all aspects of this project. It is a large program with 227 slides most of which have audio information tracks.

Subject: [IBLE] Winter Raptor Survey Project Power Point Presentation
HI Everybody,

With the increase in raptor sightings being made in the last couple of weeks, I thought I would provide you with an opportunity to learn about the East Cascades Audubon Society’s Winter Raptor Survey Project which got underway on November 1 and will go through March 31, 2021. This is our 17th season surveying raptors. We started with 79 routes throughout Oregon back in the winter of 2004-05 and we ended last winters survey effort with 392 routes spread out throughout OR, ID, WA, and a small slice of northern CA in the Klamath Basin. I have added 47 new routes, mostly in WA, to the project for this winter bringing our total to 437 routes covering more than 26,000 miles of transects each month. This has grown into a large citizen science project ! :). We are happy to provide The Peregrine Fund with all our data each winter to help them build their huge data base for all raptors of the world :)

The opportunity that I alluded to is a power point presentation about the project that I put together this past summer. There are 227 slides with hundreds of incredible photos provided by nearly 60 raptor project participants. All 31 species that we have observed on our surveys over the years are represented in the presentation. Most of the slides have audio tracks that impart lots of information about the project and the birds we find. If you were to view it all at one time and listen to the audio, it will take about 2 hours 45 minutes, the length of a good movie :). You can jump in and out easy enough if you want to bust up your viewing into multiple sittings. If you want to learn more about this great family of birds, about the project, and maybe brush up on your ID skills, this presentation will help :). Here is the link to use to get to the program: ecaudubon.org This will take you to the ECAS website homepage. When there, look for the picture of the flying Bald Eagle and follow the instructions that you find to get to the start of the program. I hope that you will take a peek, pretty sure you will enjoy what you see :). Thank you,

Jeff Fleischer

Sincere Thanks, Jeff =)

For sure we *always* bird Sauvie Island when we're visiting, absolutely love that place =)

I have a question that might be of interest to others with raptor routes...?
Missy and I are thinking of doing two of our same route per month, and we're curious as to how you would address this in your monthly summaries?
Or would this mess up your data summary effort?
Raptor Routes are The Perfect Fix for us during these Covid-19 days, but you already knew this, eh? ;-)

Gracias Amigo !!

Hi Larry,

Should mention that in the past the lady that assists in this PDX operation, who also does a route for us, has used our project data to see where the best fit would be for the release of these hawks that they collect at PDX. This makes two birds now that have been released at sites in NE OR that have had subsequent sightings, this is a great project not only to study bird movement but to keep our airports safe from bird collisions ! :)

Hi Birders,
On October 19 At SW end of Lake Lowell Lower Dam in Canyon County, I saw and photographed a Red-tailed Hawk in a tree that had a large red tag on its wing. After asking a couple of raptor friends, I was told to check with [ http://www.pdxraptors.com/ | www.pdxraptors.com ] about the bird. I sent in the photos of the red tag with KZ letters on its wing. I got an answer back and here it is. Fun to know about this hawk and hope I see more hawks with a red tag. If you find one, check out the website and let them know.

“Thank you for submitting a sighting and photo of K/Z via [ http://www.pdxraptors.com/ | www.pdxraptors.com ] ! This red-tailed hawk was first captured at Portland International Airport earlier this year in July. This bird is a hatch year and was the offspring of a pair of resident hawks that nest near the airport. After being fitted with wing-tags and a leg band it was released in Halfway, OR. Your sighting is the first we’ve received since it was released and we’re glad to hear that it is still alive and well.
Once again, thank you for your report. We truly appreciate your participation and with the help of individuals such as you, we are able to determine the most successful release sites. This in turn helps to reduce the number of birds returning to PDX and contributes to a safer airfield for both humans and birds.
We look forward to any future reports of your wing-tagged hawk sightings!”

Gmorning crazy birders !! ;-)

THIS Sage Thrasher reminds me of a few late-season birds I had in CO and NM 1995-2013...

Sage Thrasher in Dec
Green-tailed Towhee in Dec
Bullock's Oriole on rabbitbrush covered with snow, Dec
Rufous and Black-chinned hummingbirds *failing* at level flight when snow was falling in Albuquerque.... they kept drifting downward to the ground with the gently falling snowflakes, actually quite funny to watch this, like they needed a software update for this situation ???

I've had other late sightings I'm sure, but these are most memorable
