Went into Yellowstone for 3 days this last wkend &, on the way, near Harriman Pk saw 3 adult Trumpeter Swans on Swan Lk. In the Park saw more Harlequin Ducks, all paired up, than I've ever seen. At least 25 prs. Also, had a great look at a lone black bear crossing a ridge area.

Returning home have found most of the summer residents now: Bullock's Oriole, Black-chinned Hummingbird, Yellow, Yellow-rumped & Wilson's Warblers, BH Grosbeak, Lazuli Bunting & Cedar Waxwing. Before heading to Yellowstone last Fri, around our place I had started to see fairly good numbers of Painted Lady butterflies, as others have reported, but appears the cold, wet weather pattern has curtailed their numbers.

Still waiting to see W Tanager come through.

On Saturday at the Idaho Botanical Garden up Old Penitentiary Road from
Warm Springs Avenue, I also witnessed an amazing butterfly migration. They
flowed downhill looking much like leaves on the wind. The person in the
garden gift shop told me it started Friday afternoon even with the heavy
clouds and lack of sun. He told me they were Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui)
butterflies. If you read about them, I think you'll find them fascinating.
I'm wishing a lepidopterist were at the Gardens with me Saturday. I have
many questions!

I was fortunate to find a snowy plover in Bannock County yesterday. There is a large alkaline playa at the upper reaches of Oxford Slough, southeast of the intersection of Oxford and Coulam Roads. The bird was at the north end.
Interestingly, I have been drooling over this playa all spring because of extensive mud/wet sand flats. It was superb for waterfowl back in late March and early April, but has largely been disappointing for shorebirds. I was hoping for lots of stilts, long-billed dowitchers, and maybe a peep or two. But when I arrived it only harbored 1 killdeer, 1 American avocet, and 4 Wilson's phalaropes. I was scanning it a 3rd time in disbelief that it was so empty when the plover flew in. I took notice of it right away as something that could be interesting because of it's overall small size and light coloration. Wasn't expecting this species though!

Other noteworthy sightings include a steady stream of hundreds of white-faced ibis flying back and forth out of their nesting colony at Oxford Slough Waterfowl Production Area, out toward Swan Lake Slough and Marsh Valley. Displaying and calling long-billed curlews, willets, and Wilson's snipe were a treat to enjoy. There was also a daytime short-eared owl along Coulam Road and a great-tailed grackle at Swan Lake Slough.

Subject: [IBLE] Moscow WHITE-THROATED SPARROW
This evening I was pleased to find a late WHITE-THROATED SPARROW (lousy pic
in eBird: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56555130) in the UI Arboretum
and Botanical Gardens in Moscow. It was in the Spirea hedge due west of
the 3 big Prospector Elms in the upper end of the Arb. This appears to be
only the third May record in eBird for north Idaho. I detected no other
migrants, but did pick up my FOY mosquito bite. 1-2 Towsend's Warblers, a
Wilson's Warbler, Western Tanager, and newly-arrived Chipping Sparrow
rounded out the migrants in my Moscow yard this morning. At least one of
my yard-breeding Western (Cordilleranish) Flycatchers arrived on the early
side, May 18.

Good Birding,

I sent this Saturday but it didn’t go out as far as I can tell. I was in awe today at what I witnessed.

I walked outside this afternoon and noticed 20 butterflies flying through my yard in Eagle in the time I walked out to my truck. I then drove up to Avimor (a foothills community north of Boise along hwy 55). In the five or so miles I noticed 1000's of butterflies including 100's dead on the road. Later in the evening I was at Dry Creek Cemetery and still noticed 100's of Butterflies passing through. I've never witnessed anything like this before.

I was in the foothills on a long hike early this morning in the Five-mile Gulch vicinity and witnessed hundreds of birds. The sound was almost deafening early in the morning with all the singing from the birds. I counted 53 species and my checklist only included a five mile loop. My hike included a 10 mile loop up to tree line and back but I didn't enter all numbers due to the 5 mile eBird limit. There were large numbers of Chats, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Spotted Towhees, Lazuli Buntings and warblers (7 species of warblers). I love doing this hike each spring. I'm amazed every time I do it.

I was at Dry Creek Cemetery yesterday and had a flock of 15 Western Tanagers. I had never seen this many before just standing there for a minute. A singing Anna's Hummingbird male continues. I've just seen the 1 male so far.

It's a great time to be in the outdoors!

It's a great time to be in the outdoors!

Subject: [IBLE] Snowy Plover - Oxford Slough
I was fortunate to find a snowy plover in Bannock County yesterday. There
is a large alkaline playa at the upper reaches of Oxford Slough, southeast
of the intersection of Oxford and Coulam Roads. The bird was at the north
end.

Interestingly, I have been drooling over this playa all spring because of
extensive mud/wet sand flats. It was superb for waterfowl back in late
March and early April, but has largely been disappointing for shorebirds.
I was hoping for lots of stilts, long-billed dowitchers, and maybe a peep
or two. But when I arrived it only harbored 1 killdeer, 1 American avocet,
and 4 Wilson's phalaropes. I was scanning it a 3rd time in disbelief that
it was so empty when the plover flew in. I took notice of it right away as
something that could be interesting because of it's overall small size and
light coloration. Wasn't expecting this species though!

Other noteworthy sightings include a steady stream of hundreds of
white-faced ibis flying back and forth out of their nesting colony at
Oxford Slough Waterfowl Production Area, out toward Swan Lake Slough and
Marsh Valley. Displaying and calling long-billed curlews, willets, and
Wilson's snipe were a treat to enjoy. There was also a daytime short-eared
owl along Coulam Road and a great-tailed grackle at Swan Lake Slough.

this just in from one of my corespondents on the West Coast......

was news to me!




soothing gentle rain this afternoon here in River City =)

A previously extinct species of bird made a miraculous return from the dead, scientists write in a new study published in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society . The white-throated rail previously inhabited the Aldabra Atoll in the Indian Ocean, but when the island disappeared below the sea about 136,000 years ago, the bird died out, CNN reports. Scientists digging around found fossils from before and after the island slipped under the sea, and discovered the bird reappeared several thousand years later after sea levels declined; it still inhabits the island today. Scientists call this phenomenon of a species repeatedly evolving from the same ancestor "iterative evolution," and this marks one of the "most significant" instances of it occurring in a bird species, CNN says. In both cases, the white-throated rail colonized the island and evolved to be flightless due to a lack of competing predators.

Subject: [IBLE] YB Chat
I always hope to see a YB Chat in the spring on our place but, over the years, chats have always been rare. When I saw Larry's post the other day mentioning chats, I was hopeful.

Today, I had one give some of the best views I've ever enjoyed of this elusive spring visitor. I spotted it in some willows, working through a particular patch. I backed away, found a spot to sit & enjoyed the show. It was gleaning insects from the willows, working back & forth, then started its noisy "chatting" calls. A good 20 minutes of entertainment.

My last visit from the Blue Jay was 5/12, 3 days shy of a full 7 months. Now that I've posted, it will probably show again! But, I'm thinking the jay may actually have moved on. I like to think its semi-circle flight around the yard at my last sighting was the jay's way of thanking me, before heading off, for feeding it through & helping it survive a long winter.

I've watched for answers to Larry's question if folks still post their lists to IBLE & not seeing a lot of responses. Think Facebook, Twitter, etc may have made inroads to the likes of forums on Yahoo Groups. I leave Facebook to my wife & personally avoid it. And, as have previously noted, not returned to eBird. Sure hope the lights don't shut for IBLE, as it's been an enjoyable way to share birding observations & info from around the state. Guess time will tell.

Subject: [IBLE] Lazuli Buntings
Like Larry, over here on the east side of state, getting a lot of Lazuli Buntings this spring. At one point, I had 5 at the feeder: 4 males & a female. With just as many males singing all around, at the same time their cohorts were at the feeder. Unfortunately, the intersex Lazuli was a no show today. Was hoping to get its photo today.

Subject: [IBLE] Turnstone !!




Behzinga!



Do Idaho listers read or post IBLE anymore? Just checking...



Our agenda today was Elmore County, as much and as long as we could handle. We missed most of our eight target species, snagging only two, but the sheer abundance of Lazuli Buntings, chats and snakes (yes snakes) was insane and worth the trip, plus we snagged 70 sp +/- by noon.



The recent Short-billed Dowitcher spot was not on today’s radar screen, but since we would be driving by it on our way home, and since we had never heard of the place, we had to find it and look for birds. One of the first things we saw made me LOL…. A Red-winged Blackbird along the shore of Pond 3 was turning every stone the size of golf balls and tennis balls….. what a hoot!!



After scanning the visible shorelines 40 minutes or so, THE dowitcher appeared on the SE corner of Pond 3, having the shortest bill (relative to head) of any dowitcher I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a zillion LBDO across the country and many SBDO on the Gulf Coast and elsewhere. But of course, relative bill length “isn’t a field mark per se” so we focused on the flanks and belly, and soon realized that even Sibley doesn’t do justice to the species. This bird made sense here in brackish water (likely) and it was alone among the ducks and a few other shorebird species. We hadn’t seen recent reports on IBLE or eBird (since Sunday), so we weren’t expecting the bird to be here.



Happy campers are us =)

Hi Everyone,





We're about to experience a fairly odd weather pattern with 2-3 significant fronts stacked up very late in the season. It could be nothing, but it bears keeping our thoughts and eyes open for trans-oceanic shorebirds that could be affected on their way north. Species such as Bar-tailed Godwit and Bristle-thighed Curlew come to mind. I wasn't living in California in 1998, but I did manage to see the Kehoe Beach Bristle-thighed Curlew. The timing here is similar. There was a lot of discussion then around the fallout of BTCU from California north through Washington due to odd weather. A subsequent paper is here:

In any case, it'll be an interesting week. Double-check those Whimbrel on your local beaches!





Thanks





Brian

Subject: [IBLE] If You Observe Long Enough...
This evening, I witnessed what has to be in my top 5 of bird "fascinomas". "Gynandromorphism" is the term for both sexes expressed in a single individual. Sometimes, this can be expressed, as a Cardinal photo which made the circuit sev yrs ago, as a distinct half & half (extremely rare) or as a patch-work of both features.

I saw a Lazuli Bunting at the feeder that had the body markings of a female: brownish with buffy breast & buffy wing bars. And the male turquoise blue coloration on the top of the head/throat & rump of the same bird. The sides of the head & the tail of this bird were female grayish brown. So, a gynandromorphic Lazuli Bunting! Just plain...fascinating.

Subject: [IBLE] Spring Rush - random synapses



So, for biking my usual eBird patch (nearest section of Boise River Greenbelt, just west of Glenwood), I’m still wearing my knee-high Tingley’s because water on the path is 10” deep in places. Water is receding though. And I discovered it’s time to begin carrying DEET.



I noticed all three HY Great-horned Owls have departed from their nest, in fact may have departed their tree. I took another "sound level reading" at the site and recorded 60-80+ dBA, then asked the Bird Gods why owls in particular would nest this close to active gravel operations. ??



Also saw a few Wild Turkeys, adults with poults, at the West Boise Biosolids Recycling Site (basically looks like a pasture, has in the past hosted horses, cows, sheep, goats. Onward to some 45 species for my slow-motion morning bike ride. =)



Still no Willow Flycatchers in my patch, not a surprise because in prior years (n=6) they didn’t arrive until 22-29 May. And the last migrant/breeder I expect to arrive here is Common Nighthawk, typically 26 May to 05 Jun.



In an overwhelming moment of agony, I realized that during our six yrs here, many of the remaining remnants of habitat along the greenbelt have succumbed to development, improvement, “progress!” Like Ada County’s mission statement is to "redefine or remake every square foot if possible.”



But I thought of a more serious problem: that of using four-letter alpha codes on my bird lists. Suppose I see or hear a Killdeer, then something happens to me, like an accident that leaves me unconscious, and someone discover my bird list... I’m pretty sure I’d be added to a terrorist watch list. Ya think?



Hey Ken, thank you for being a fabulous host when Missy and I were there looking for your Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Big smiles and g reat memories of that!



Good boid’n all,

Larry

The Green-tailed Towhees are back in force also and in full song as are the House Wrens.

One Hammond's Flycatcher singing also. And a pair of Northern Harriers yacking at me.

Getting pretty noisy out here! May need ear plugs soon.

Overnight, Yellow Warblers arrived by the dozens. Males are singing from cottonwoods all through the Snake River Riparian area, quickly establishing their territories. BH Grosbeaks are doing the same. As are Lazuli Bunting males, spotted 6 singing & staking their spots this AM on the place. I did put the Oriole feeder out which has 2 small, shallow jelly cups (so none of the smaller birds can get stuck in jelly) & 2 prongs for orange halves. The only visitors, so far, have been the BC Hummingbirds going from orange halves to their nectar feeder. Suspect the hummer pr will quickly move to nesting.

Also have seen WC Sparrows & Chipping Sparrows this AM. Heard the Blue Jay again, earlier. But no longer visits the seed feeder. Another surprise was a Townsend's Solitaire which landed at the top of a spruce tree. They're usually gone by mid-April, so this is a late date for my yard. Am finding House Finch egg halves, meaning on this Mother's Day, they're already feeding hatchlings.

Subject: [IBLE] Island Park Reservoir Shorebirds / Whimbrel
We hiked out to the west end this afternoon and it was pretty busy. We
found a Whimbrel in with Curlews in the Sagebrush and a male Pectoral
Sandpiper (only the second I've seen in spring) in flooded Sagebrush a
long way from the reservoir. The res is only 85% full so there's a lot
of habitat out there right now. There was probably more small terns than
I've seen before, all Forster's (I usually don't see Common until late
May so not unexpected they were all Forster's). There was a flock of 10
Black-bellied Plovers and 11 dowitchers too far away to ID. A small
mixed flock of Wilson's and Red-necked Phalaropes, a flock of maybe 80
American Avocets, 11 Sanderlings (I think the most I've seen up here),
plenty of Willets, a few Killdeer and Wilson's Snipe and single Spotted,
Western and Semipalmated Sandpipers rounded out the shorebirds.

Subject: [IBLE] Once Again, I Spoke Too Soon!
Relaxing on back deck this evening & heard the Blue Jay! Thought, at first, I was trying to make a Magpie call into the jay. But, it was so typical for the jay. Then, it landed in a nearby cottonwood, letting me get a good look through the binocs. And then flew a semi-circle around the yard, disappearing back in the woods. It didn't even glance at the feeder. Obviously, is feeding on natural sources now.

I don't even know what to think anymore about this bird. Or even if it's the same one? Have to think it is, but no sightings in nearly a week. If I can locate it on the 15th, that would make a full 7 months of its residency here.

I filled the hummer feeder & since filling, have had at least one each male & female Black-chinned Hummingbird visit it. A male Lazuli Bunting has been hitting the black-oil sunflower seeds most of the afternoon. And, a male Bullock's Oriole arrived this evening, too. Time for the jelly cups. Two more to go: Yellow Warbler & Western Tanager.

IBLE,

attached is info regarding phylogenetic restructuring of hummingbirds that i had recently mentioned to Chuck Trost, and guessing there might be a few other folks on our listserv with an interest in this...?
i.e., per research published ten yrs ago, Hermits were no longer considered basal to all hummingbirds species (Family Trochilidae)
I haven't stayed current with this stuff, so do not know what is currently accepted.

Just for fun,

Stepped out on back deck & opened our bright red deck umbrella. Had just sat down in its shade, when a male Black-chinned Hummingbird started buzzing the umbrella. Guess he figured he'd discovered a cornucopia of nectar! Must be time to fill the hummer feeder.

Subject: [IBLE] Black-headed Grosbeaks
Looks like the Blue Jay took off sometime last Sunday. Haven't heard nor seen since. Sure made for an entertaining feeder bird this past winter.

Black-headed Grosbeaks arrived on Wed this week. And the Harris' Sparrow is still around. My most common bird right now is Am Goldfinch. Closely followed by House Finch & Am Robin. House Wrens are already nesting. Still waiting on W Tanager, Bullock's Orioles & Yellow Warblers.

For Ruth Shea: went up to cabin today & I didn't see the Trumpeter pr at Swan Lake. But the lake is inundated right now and their nesting island is underwater. There's still patches of snow around but melting fast. So, maybe they'll show in the next week or so.

Was just now watching the feeders to see if today's rainy weather brought in any spring arrivals & was pleasantly surprised to find a male Lazuli Bunting, with that impossible turquoise blue head, come in for seeds. My favorite spring arrival! Other spring residents shouldn't be too far behind.

Appears (cautious statement) that the Blue Jay has moved on. Haven't seen since last Fri nor heard since Sun. But, it has surprised me, when I've thought the same, by suddenly appearing. However, I've not heard its loud morning or evening announcements since Sun AM.

Scott, sincere thanks for your note. I've often heard male CAHU sound like they have a "loose or worn primary" or something that might sound like that? but that was during fall migration, at locations that had Calliope only during fall migration. I support your call to caution on ID of male BTLH by wing sound, and I'd say the same for males of other species, unless we have them at our feeders annually and hear them daily, like all day long. Experience is key. I'm tempted to say more because hums are fascinating, but it's Time for me to get back out there among our feeders and check on the status of our hum-cussing and hum-fussing... =)

Let me follow up from Larry's Hummingbird Report with my own
observations here in the Highlands area of Boise.

I got our feeders up on April 30th and immediately had both
Black-chinned and Calliope visiting the feeders. I don't keep as
accurate of records as Larry but in the last 10-12 years I think we have
had our FOY hummers in April only 2-3 times. The more normal date is May
3-5 or so. So yes, this is an early year.

So far I have only seen male Black-chinned but have both male and female
Calliope. Like Larry's place, outside of spring and fall migration, the
only hummingbirds we have are Black-chinned. Calliope and Rufous are
brief visitors, hanging out only until they feel like moving on to
where they really want to be.

I want to pass on an observation and see if others have comments.
Yesterday I heard a hummer come in that sounded like a Huey Helicopter.
It's wings were really loud. Almost like some of the flying beetles I
have seen and heard. Of course I immediately thought it was a
Broad-tailed - a specie I have only seen 2-3 times here and in the fall.
When I finally got a good look at it I realized it was a Calliope - no
doubt. The question then is why was it's wingbeat so loud? A damaged
primary? Moulting? Any thoughts? I also want to caution folks to make a
Broad-tailed ID call based on wingbeat noise. I noticed a bunch of
recent eBird sightings of Broad-tailed that referenced this usual field
trait. But, it also seems like there might be "noisy Calliope's" out there.

About a week ago a neighbor told me she had a Rufous in her back yard. I was skeptical until I saw the chubby little ball of fire. That same day we had our first BC male at our feeders here in the North End. And yesterday I had a female Black Chinned come to our feeders 3 times while I was sitting outside with binos (and a beer). And I saw a male Calliope in Hulls Gulch last Thursday, but none in my yard so far.

Lots of other arrivals are making it easier for me to meet my 30 bird quota every day.

Subject: [IBLE] Adult male ANHU persists at Dry Creek Cemetery, Boise/Eagle




Birders,




Missy found us four sp of hummers this morning, three at our feeders, but more important was a continuing male Anna’s hanging out at the “main entrance” to subject cemetery (Hill Rd – Dry Creek Cemetery Rd entrance), continuously active with singing, foraging, inter-species chasing, and sword-play with a fem Rufous. ( our brief look revealed a touch of rufous on her flanks, but there were other hums around, so who knows? ) C ould potentially yield a first report / and record / of breeding in Idaho…!? (hint-hint)



Chipety-chipety, tzeee-chupity-chup, tsip, tsip, tew, tchip, and “long scraping sputter” per Kaufman… a diminutive battle of the bands, eh?



Larry and Missy

Subject: [IBLE] Teton Valley birds
Hi,

On my morning walk here in Packsaddle in the NW part of Teton Valley foothills, heard and then saw a Say's Phoebe. This is the first one I have documented in this area ever. It looked like it was passing through but will see.

Also heard a drumming Ruffed Grouse, and saw a drumming Red-naped Sapsucker, a flock of 27 Evening Grosbeaks, and had two singing House Wrens. American Robins are everywhere in pairs and in groups. Dark-eyed Juncos (Pink-sided) are singing from high perches also. Just a few Yellow-rumped Warblers.. One Lazuli Bunting showed up a neighbor's feeder also. Two Pine Grosbeak (females) were foraging. Yesterday I saw one Green-tailed Towhee but did not see or hear any others today.

The joys of spring included a few yellow sage buttercups in bloom as well.

Peace, Susan

Subject: [IBLE] Sparrows
I've had some interesting bird visits to the feeder today. At one point, had all of these at the same time either on the platform feeder or beneath it scratching for seeds: 1 Green-tailed Towhee, 1 Harris' Sparrow, 1 Lincoln's Sparrow, 6 White-crowned Sparrows & 1 Pine Siskin feeding with a dozen Am Goldfinches.

I have heard the Blue Jay calling from back in the woods yesterday & today but my last sighting was Fri, the 3rd. Haven't seen it at the feeder in 2 days. Obviously, the jay no longer needs my seeds &, as it is getting no response to its calls, I suspect it will move on soon.

Subject: [inlandcountybirds] Sea & Sage pelagic trip - May 4







Sea & Sage Audubon held their annual spring pelagic trip today (May 4) aboard the Ocean Institute's Millennium Falcon. We traveled out at a little less than light speed to Lausen Sea Mount, the deep water oil platforms off Huntington Beach, and then back to Dana Point. Highlights from the trip included great views of dozens of Black Storm-Petrels at Lausen Sea Mount coming into a slick of bantha oil (as well as numerous others scattered throughout the trip), and two fly-by Sabine's Gulls in alternate plumage also at Lausen Sea Mount. We also saw an incredible three (possibly four) Red-footed Boobies at the oil platforms. Two somewhat dark-billed birds were perched on the skiff moored off Platform Eureka, while a pink-billed bird (probably the same that was on the winter trip) and a dark-billed bird were perched on Platform Edith. Later a subadult Brown Booby flew by the boat off Newport Beach. An immature Yellow-crowned Night-Heron was perched on the jetty as we were departing the harbor in the morning. Other species observed included Red-necked Phalarope, Scripps's Murrelet, Cassin's Auklet, Parasitic Jaeger, Pink-footed Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater, Wilson's Warbler, and a late first cycle Glaucous-winged Gull at the oil platforms.





May the 4th be with you.

Subject: [IBLE] Hummingbird Report, West Boise, Spring 2019 [1 Attachment]




Hummer peoples,



We’ve fed hummingbirds for nearly 35 years, although I refer to it as playing Kubikschach ( 3D chess ) with them ;-) We’ve fed these Lilliputians annually except for the few years we lived in Europe (UK and GE), mostly in states where we’ve lived and/or visited, however briefly: AK, OR, CA, AZ, NM, TX, FL, NV, UT, CO, and ID since 2012.



Every year brings surprises, but nothing as crazy as this year has in west Boise! So far, every arriving hummer (species and gender) has been a record early date for our yard, or a first record seasonal sighting, e.g., we’ve never entertained Rufous (RU) or Calliope (CA) in spring!! Our only expected summer resident and breeder has been Black-chinned (BC), and we’re still looking for this year’s first fBC. Please refer to chart below, wherein I hope these notes are apparent and not ambiguous.



This morning, both male and female CA were using our feeders often, and at 0943 hrs a male was displaying to a female in one of our small trees, e.g., dives, hovers, and buzzing or “shuttle-displays.” (ref: BNA species account, Calder and Calder, 1994)



What’s next? It shouldn’t surprise us, eh?



Larry

Another visit by the Blue Jay this morning. And, White-crowned Sparrows have replaced juncos around the place. A surprise was an adult Harris' Sparrow to the feeder.

House Wrens, Am Goldfinches, Am Robins, BC Chickadees, Red-naped Sapsuckers, House Finches & N Flickers are all busy with song & nesting prep. The Red-winged Blackbirds have their territories established & are just waiting for the females to arrive. As of yet: no warblers, vireos, orioles, BH Grosbeaks nor hummers.

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.

Subject: [IBLE] Kah-Boom…!!





It felt like July 4 th when the firecracker went off. I speak fondly of Sir Rufous, AKA male Rufous Hummingbird. =) In our five yrs here, we’ve never had a Rufous in this yard until late July or early August. In fact, we’ve never had an adult male Rufous in this yard, period. So today when our male Black-chinned got chased off the humfeeder by Sir Rufous, it was like being back on the Western Slope of Colorado, IN FALL , when Rufous migrated through, as in southbound .



Our brains got all twisted up over this, but our mouths are still smiling! And did I mention that we were in the yard transplanting humplant seedlings (salvia cultivars) when this cosmic event occurred? Ha!!



Oh Be Joyful, Happy Dance Day!!

Subject: [IBLE] Swainson's Hawk Pair
For the 23rd year that I've been keeping count, a Swainson's Hawk pair returned today. If it's the same pair, they always show at one of our front pasture cottonwoods, where they've nested sev times, and always within sev hundred yds from the same tree.

I was curious what would happen this spring, because a Red-tailed Hawk pair has been roosting in the tree & eyeing an old nest site. Well, the Swainson's Hawks made dive-bombing runs on the Red-taileds & the last I saw of the Red-taileds, they were headed out & up river. The Swainson's are now perched in the cottonwood.

Even though we frosted last night & low Sun is supposed to be 27°, the Swainson's give me hope that the current shoulder season will, indeed, soon turn to real spring. I'll know for sure when I hear the first Lazuli Bunting sing.

Yesterday I saw a Calliope out the window and hurried up with feeders. Today, in the howling winds, I have several Calliopes hitting feeders. Earliest arrival by a couple days.

I see on the hummer migration map there were Hummers last week in Pocatello and earlier this week in Grace, cool site.

Get those feeders up eastern Idaho.

Sandhills seem to be nesting in fields.

Went to Hulls Gulch today with my ornithology class. We stood directly next to a male Calliope in a currant bush and watched as he sat there on the receiving-end of the divebomb mating/aggression display of another male CAHU! So fun to watch, and my students were imitating the "pew!" sound and laughing about that display for the rest of the day :)
We always play it by ear for Idaho City banding early in the season, but our first scheduled date is May 21st for monitoring there (http://hummingbirds.eventbrite.com)
We also had a flyby of another hummer that seemed large enough to be an Anna's at Hulls today, but could not confirm. I've seen others eBirding a male ANHU there....very worth keeping track of him: if we are going to get a first breeding record in Idaho, that's going to be the place!
Have to admit, we haven't even put out our home feeder yet! Slacking....
While I'm at it and taking the time to post on IBLE I may as well also share our upcoming songbird banding dates! Free for anyone who wants to watch and enjoy :)   https://intermountainbirdobservatory.eventbrite.com

The Blue Jay came in this AM for 2-3 visits. Others this week have been the arrival of House Wrens, immediately establishing their pair bonds & territories. Sev Red-naped Sapsuckers are now here, as well. A N Flicker has been busy excavating a new cavity in a backyard cottonwood for the past 5 days. Wood Ducks are already quietly nesting.

Yesterday, I had 2 White-crowned Sparrows scratching seeds from around the feeder base along with a full breeding-plumaged Harris' Sparrow. The American Goldfinches are all in breeding plumage now, too. And, for the past week, I've had evening visits by 2 Wild Turkey toms squaring off, gobbling & spurring each other over 6 hens. They'll all put on a show for nearly an hour. The toms' heads, waddles & necks turn crimson red with hues of bright blue when they get within a few feet of one another. Then they fan their tails, bristle their back feathers, puff out their chests to show their beards & square off for minutes at a time. Quite the show! Last evening, just the tom with the longer beard appeared with 4 hens. So, guess he's the main winner of the standoffs.

Appreciate the advice & comments re: eBird. Hoping, the next couple of weeks brings the arrival of some colorful songbirds.

I saw the first one (male Calliope) on the 18th, and today there were quite a few flitting about and coming to feeders.  Yesterday I saw a male Rufous briefly - heard it before I saw it, and it didn't stay long.  This evening I even had two at a time on a feeder, so they're starting to come back!  Makes me happy!  Most zoom in and out quickly so too hard to identify for sure, but most I've seen closely are male Calliopes.

Its simple to use, I enjoy capturing my sightings in it, and the information it contains has been invaluable for researching places to go, important distinctions in bird identification, etc. I would encourage every birder to jump into eBird with both feet and not only help themselves, but the entire birding community.

Brian, Tom ,and IBLE,

I would tend to agree. I have issues with eBird as well. In addition to what your issue I personally dont like limitations to for my own use. For example I tend to record a lot of behavior with my sightings not just a count.. I also record a number of other taxa when I am out birding. I use a program called Birders Diary (its a PC program so no internet or sign in needed). In part because it allows me to added as much text as I want to every sighting. It also lets me track other taxa. So using that, if I want I can generate a life list or a county, yard list etc. I can generate a list of species seen in National Parks or a particular national park for example. I can do that with birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies, dragonflies, wild trees, wildflowers, etc.

That being said one could say I am an eBird hypocrite because even though I dont enter lists I do regularly look at it. I frequently check it out to see what others are seeing on the refuge where I work as well as the county where I am.

Have to admit, I have not entered data into eBird in many years. Suppose two reasons. First is probably just laziness on my part. As it means another sign in & navigation of a site. Second is the last time I tried data entry into eBird was sev winters ago & attempted to enter approx 100 Trumpeter Swans wintering just east of Springfield & kept getting a msg pop-up stating the number was out of ordinary for location & I couldn't get the number entered. So, I exited the site in frustration & have made no further attempts at data entry on the site.

Perhaps, there was a way to get the entry accepted but just felt it wasn't worth my time. So, I have not entered any of my blue jay data. Probably not very good reasons for not entering eBird data. However, I do also just plain enjoy IBLE & just haven't felt the urge to try eBird again.

I’ll have to admit that my experience with eBird was similar to yours. A number of years ago, I tried to report the 5 Pied-billed Grebes I’d seen on my bike ride, and I was told that was too many for that time of year. Plus, I was told I went too far on my bike ride. Apparently eBird likes 5 mile segments.
Plus, I don’t write down my birds as I go along, I simply write them down after I get home, in the order I saw them. That makes inputting location a problem. And now that there is an app to enter the data and the location (apparently), that would require stopping every time I saw or heard a bird so I could futz around with my phone.
While I appreciate the importance of all the citizen science data that is being accumulated, my first experience turned me off, and I haven’t had the desire to go back. And Kim has repeatedly encouraged me. Could it be that I’m getting old and resisting change?

Hey Brian - I’m writing to offer encouragement. Give it another try! =). You can do it. Honestly, they’ve made the website and the Phone App much easier to navigate. You got this. Write back if you need assistance. =)kim
AND - if you’re in Boise area… fun to see 2 avocets out by the cows at Harris Ranch. Probably some other nifty leggy things out there, but I need to go back and look.
Happy Spring. =)k

So, I exited the site in frustration & have made no further attempts at data entry on the site.

Perhaps, there was a way to get the entry accepted but just felt it wasn't worth my time. So, I have not entered any of my blue jay data. Probably not very good reasons for not entering eBird data. However, I do also just plain enjoy IBLE & just haven't felt the urge to try eBird again.
