I've picked up at least six recently, and usually see ten or fewer recipients listed on each of the ones I've received.
Anyone else seeing this, and should we reply to the senders so they know their computers are doing this?
Or is this a broader problem, like something more to do with IBLE than with a few computers?

I could only muster up 4 of the 6 American Golden-plovers when I stopped by this evening, that had been reported yesterday (Kathy) and again this morning (Cheryl) at the spillway. I was glad to see the 4 though, and there could easily have been a couple more resting in the rocks out of sight. Probably 1,000 gulls or so present too. Lots of rain/wind storms in the vicinity; hopefully the weather won’t drive them on south for awhile yet.

Subject: [IBLE] Lake Walcott spillway
Lake Walcott Spillway is very low now as a new boat ramp is being built. I asked the construction guys if they cared I was there and they don’t mind- just be careful around the equipment. Very little water being let out which is forming small pools of water and attracting a lot of birds. Gulls gulls and more gulls
( 5 sp) seen this morning but I certainly could have missed a Mew or something else more rare. Seeing 6 American Golden plovers was a real treat! And a white-throated sparrow popped up in front of me when I phished the song sparrows to take a break from scoping. Morning light is best and bring a scope for best viewing.

This fall migration is just plain...weird. The usual winter resident Townsend's Solitaires & DE Juncos (Oregon & Pink-sided) are showing. A few White-crowned Sparrows & Am Robins are present. And the House Finches, BC Chickadees & Am Goldfinches are coming to the feeders.

Then, just a bit ago, a Blue Jay appeared at the sunflower seed platform feeder. Striking in its different blue hues. Stayed for about 5 minutes, gulping seeds & calling loudly. It's been several years since I've had one appear.

Speaking from me heart to all y'all.... Heidi, seeing you recently put a

IBLE peoples.. Pls forgive me when I speak crazy speak, I mean nothing more
than lots of great birds, like a recent Surf Scoter and RN Grebe on Redfish
Lake, me home turf, Home Turf , Mine all Mine!! ;-)



AND when I say stupid stuff to some of you, please forgive me, I'm on weird
meds, geezer meds, mostly with a Z in their name. As a rule I don't like
state list servs because I tend to speak me mind, whereas, I know so few of
you. I got on FB a few yrs ago, could not get off fast enough, even with
help from IT guys



Hey Tom, if you still have that photo of me looking for your interesting
late fall hummer, pls post that photo so folks have proof of geezer me, um,
that I exist. hahaha



And, please, reference me eBird profile, yes? It's about me life at MIT,

Howdy,
This afternoon I drove around AFR on a clear, cool afternoon. The reservoir is refilling, and Aberdeen’s Big Hole never emptied. At the corner of Strang and Yuma Roads there were seven Am. Avocets and about sixty L.-billed Dowitchers. At Danielson mudflats (Springfield effluent) there were two Am. Avocets. Yesterday near the silo there were 2 Killdeer and 2 Pectoral Sandpipers. A pair of Parasitic Jaegers were chasing gulls, and each other for a fish a gull dropped.
Good Birding,

Thanks for reporting, Brian!

Here in west Boise, our lingering BC hummer finally departed (ten days ago), as have our Ospreys. FOS duckage, RC Kinglets, WC sparrows, and juncos are on the rise in our hood.

Missy and our daughter Katey are finally home from Paris, and I've returned from a Fall Color Drive through Stanley, Sunny Valley, Ketchum, Hailey and Bellevue, like wowzers!!! B est birds included Canada Jays near Stanley and one each RN Grebe and Surf Scoter on Redfish Lake. The Sawtooths and White Clouds were my favorite backpacking areas during college years, eh? =)
Moments ago I put one of my Colorado birding buds on the plane homeward.

Birding, onward, onward, and onward......

My first winter resident Townsend's Solitaire of the year, showed up this AM. Always enjoyable to see. But, also means, my fall migrants are essentially done. Compared to past fall migrations, the one word that would describe this year's is...sparse. In fact, for my immediate area, disturbingly so. Will see what next year brings.

As I missed about 10 days from the area, was hoping I had just been absent for the main push. But, a fellow birder, who lives a couple miles from me, also in Snake River Riparian habitat, noted the same decrease in fall migrant numbers this season.

Attention Birders!

We need your help. The Intermountain Bird Observatory, Idaho Bird Conservation Partnership and Golden Eagle Audubon Society are partnering with the Boise River Enhancement Network to measure how a new Boise restoration project will benefit birds.

Cottonwood Creek is currently buried in a flume under Julia Davis Park ending in a concrete and stone outlet at the Boise River. The goal of the Cottonwood Creek Daylighting Project is to bring the stream back to the surface, or “daylight” the creek. This will provide bird and fish habitat and help filter stormwater.

We are recruiting citizen scientists (that’s you!) to record bird sightings and submit their observations to eBird. This will give us important data on the project before and after restoration occurs.

Oh, and did we mention there are prizes?! Check out the google doc to learn more, and find out how you can participate to win the first prize: an invite to the BREN Annual Member Appreciation Party this November!

More info:

You can contact me with any questions about this project.
Thanks!Heidi Ware CarlisleBoise

Hello birders,

On Sunday, Oct. 07, I tried in vain to find a previously reported Indigo Bunting at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia (after hours of searching, I still was unable to locate it).

While I was at the parking lot, I noticed a Yellow-rumped Warbler was attacking its own reflection at a car's mirror. I've seen California Towhees doing that numerous times, but never seen a Warbler displaying such self-destructing aggression.

If interested, here's a link to some of my photos of the incident: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmrqUY6R

Jaegers are impressive, Parasitic or otherwise,

But you know I’m enamored with anything that flies.

My ride started out with Mourning Dove and Starling,

And the Goldfinch and Nuthatch were really quite darling.

Then came a Junco, first of the season,

And the song of the Kinglet was definitely pleasing.

Then Cormorants and Gulls and a Grebe of the West

But the stunning Bald Eagle was truly the best.

With Robin, Downy and Sparrow of Song

Getting to thirty wouldn’t take long.

Especially with Wood Duck and Gadwall and Ruddy,

And the Hawk with Red Tail was surely my buddy.

By Remington Street, I had found thirty-six,

With Crows and Waxwings entering the mix.

Then came the Sparrow with his special White Crown,

Followed by Kestrel and Wigeon, and I was homeward bound.

But then I saw a Phoebe, he of Mister Say,

Which was upstaged quickly by a gorgeous Osprey.

At Veterans, a Merlin was superb as he sat,

But a Cooper’s in my yard topped even that.

The final tally was forty-five,

And take my word, that ain’t no jive.

Subject: [IBLE] Swainson's Thrush
Well, looks like fall songbird migration is coming to an end in my neck of the woods. I saw my first fall Swainson's Thrush this AM, which in past years has always been the last songbird to push through. I found a handful of Ruby-crowned Kinglets, as well. Not a single warbler.

This fall migration was just "off" for warblers through my area this season. I can usually count on MacGillivray's showing first & within a few weeks, a multitude of mixed flocks, including Townsend's. Just didn't materialize this season. My best fall migrants were early season Gray Catbirds, sometimes 3-4 at a time. Had a few Orange-crowneds, Wilson's &, most numerous, Yellow-rumpeds. But even the YR's were sparse, maybe 8-10 in a group, at most. Now, just waiting for juncos to start showing.

Subject: [IBLE] Moscow to Valley County
IBLErs,

I had a fine time birding the US-95 corridor from Moscow to Valley County,
this weekend. Saturday was rainy fall birding at its best starting at Mann
Lake which still had a few PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, Long-billed Dowitchers, and
a small heard of Audubon's Warblers. Below the dam, the Mann Lake outflow
crosses Res Line Road, and at that crossing I found a cooperative SWAMP
SPARROW (photos and details on eBird:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48977947). Winchester Lake State Park
had a late Osprey.

The Camas Prairie was pretty socked-in and it was apparently grounding
Long-billed Dowitchers. I had only one actually on the ground, at the
Craigmont Sewage Ponds (with 7 W. Grebes, my first at that location), but
another 18 Dowitchers came flying randomly over Craigmont City Park a
little while later, and 2 more were in the air circling below the cloud
deck and above the Ferdinand Sewage Pond. I headed towards the Monastery
of St. Gertrude, near Cottonwood, and stopped at a small sewage pond across
the highway. Here I quickly heard and then saw another SWAMP SPARROW
(photos on eBird: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48982665). The
Monastery grounds were hopping with up to 50 Audubon's Warblers, several
Myrtle Warblers, a late Orange-crowned Warbler, and other migrants. Tolo
Lake, outside Grangeville, had lots of migrant waterbirds including,
apparently all 6 of Idaho's grebe species (I missed Horned, but Charles
Swift picked one out later in the day) including my first RED-NECKED and my
second CLARK'S GREBE for Idaho County. I counted over 800 American Coots,
which is a lot for 35-acre Tolo.

Coasting down the Old Whitebird Highway was pretty uneventful except for a
late CHIPPING SPARROW at Schwartz Pond. At the Whitebird Creek access area
(Nez Perce National Historic Park) I was shocked to see several small
flocks and singletons (~70 total) of very late VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS
streaming south along the creek towards the Salmon River. These were my
first Violet-greens during October in Idaho, but they are still moving down
the coast at this season, so maybe they were pushed in my the pacific
storm? Clearly they wanted out of there as quickly as possible, the way
they were charging south. Lucile produced another flock of ~50
Yellow-rumps including up to 10% Myrtles (typical in north Idaho during
October). A slightly late Turkey Vulture was in New Meadows, and a
slightly early Rough-legged Hawk was between McCall and Lake Fork. A Vesper
Sparrow lingered along Stonebreaker Lane, on the way into Lake Cascade's
Sugarloaf Unit, which produced 2000 Coots and some dabbling ducks. A slow
perusal of Gold Fork Road, near Donnelly, in the early evening was
successful for a hunting GREAT GRAY OWL.

Sunday morning I birded, under gloriously-different conditions, in the
Cascade Reservoir area. Most of the morning was gorgeous but quiet, with
the Sugarloaf area taken over by hunters and abandoned by the previous
evening's waterfowl (7 Common Loons compensated). Things got exciting
around late morning, when I pulled into the Great Blue Heron Campground,
south of Cascade and observed an apparent mixed flock of SURF and
WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS flying north. I soon relocated 2 SURF SCOTERS,
including an immature male, diving close to shore north of Pelican Point.
I never relocated the others, but a terrible Hail Mary photo I took during
the initial sighting seems to confirm 1-2 White-winged (
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49021335).

Sunday afternoon, I birded back north along the Salmon River, stopping to
sort through Yellow-rump flocks anywhere there were Ash Trees (and warblers
targeting Wooly Aphids) or Hackberries (targeting Hackberry Psyllids). The
LDS Church parking lot in Riggins was good for about 18 Audubon's and 1-2
Myrtles, Lucille had 40 Audubon's and 2-4 Myrtles, and the Slate Creek
Recreation Area had 40-45 Audubon's, several Myrtles, an Orange-crowned
Warbler, and a my latest CASSIN'S VIREO for Idaho (
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49028400). Slate Creek Recreation Area,
in particular, should be inspected regularly in early October.

Returning to Tolo Lake, it had as many water birds as I've ever seen there,
including over 700 Ruddy Ducks, and 2 more SURF SCOTERS (
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49029780), another nice bird for Idaho
County. My "second-in-as-many" stop at The Monastery of St. Gertrude
produced about 20 final Audubon's Warblers and my only WILSON'S WARBLER of
the trip.

Good Birding,

Please accept this rhyme with my apologies to all real poets:



Another Rainy Ride

Biking today was cold but fun

Though I never even got to see the sun;

Leaves were yellow on the trees and grass

An adult Bald Eagle made a pass;

Crows and Magpies followed him around,

Making lots of raucous sound;

Ruddy Ducks were swimming on Silver Lake

And a Western Grebe wasn't hard to take;

Rarely saw a biker, mile after mile,

But all of them with that secret smile,

Because biking -or birding- on a rainy day

Is truly rewarding in a special way.

They were Killdeer 4, Black-bellied Plover 3, Am.Avocet 1, Black-necked Stilt 1, Marbled Godwit 1, Western Sandpiper 15, Pectoral Sandpiper 31, and Long-billed Dowitcher 62.

Hummer fans,
I thought this was another hoax, similar to one that came out about ten years ago on April Fools Day about a "Cave Hummer."
But this is looking real, maybe? Anyone else heard about it on other list serves?

Anyway, pix of the male Blue-throated Hillstar are stunning!

Hello everyone,



Just thought I'd hare a pice I published a few days ago about a

newly-discovered hummingbird species was found high up in Ecuador’s Andes

Mountains. Despite the elevation of its home, this species is threatened by

human activities, so it is already recognized as Critically Endangered

Howdy,
I went looking for Steve’s jaegers this afternoon between the AFR dam and the Willow Bay marina, again with no luck. But there were plenty of shorebirds which included 7 species and 145 individuals: 1 Killdeer, 1Black-bellied Plover, 1Marbled Godwit, 136 Pectoral Sandpipers, 1 Least Sandpiper, 3 Baird’s Sandpipers, and 2 Long-billed Dowitchers. There were also about 20 Common Terns, with a few Forester’s mixed in resting on rocks and. Islands.
Good Birding!

Subject: [IBLE] rarity, behavior and hopefully assistance
I spent the morning near the west end of American Falls Reservoir hoping
for the wide array of shorebirds, gulls, terns and waterfowl that many
birders have been enjoying recently. Unfortunately, I struck out on birds
like semipalmated plover and sandpiper, western sandpiper and black tern.
But that was more then made up for by sightings of 2 jaegers!

The first bird was seen while I was in the silo area, but it was further
east. I am hoping others get to see the bird, because I believe it was a
Pomarine. I have never had a good look at a pom before but I have been
able to get studying looks at parasitics. From the bat, this bird appeared
bigger and bulkier than a parasitic jaeger and the ring-billed gulls it was
chasing. I was surprised because it seemed to effortlessly close the gap
in the distance between it and the birds it was chasing, and each time the
gull would "put on the brakes" and swoop upward, but the jaeger was not
fooled and stayed w/ the bird. But, it would soon thereafter give up and
move on to other gulls to chase. It was a light phase adult.
Unfortunately, I could not see it well enough to confirm the twisted
central tail feathers, or other more fine-tuned field marks. I also see
that there are only 3 records in eBird for pomarine jaeger. Unless,
someone gets a better shot at it, it will remain in the category of "I bet
that was a pomarine."

The second bird was a definite dark parasitic and I found it from the
Willow Bay pier. The differences in flight style and shape were immediately
noticeable. Also in contrast, it engaged gulls in long, twisting, turning,
tail chases. There may actually have been 2 dark parasitics because I
found birds in different telescope scans in far different locations, but I
know these birds can cover a lot of ground fast.

I hope the birds stay around long enough so others can see them.

I visited Balmorhea Lake, Reeves Co., on Saturday afternoon (29 September) and found a virtually solid black male Ruddy Duck. Melanism in Ruddy Ducks is known and at least two birds like this individual have been reported, one from Utah in 1947 and one in Arizona in 2017. This duck was the biggest highlight as there was not a lot on the lake other than Clark’s and Western Grebes. The few other highlights included:



American Avocet - 13

Semipalmated Plover – 2

Long-billed Curlew – 11

Sanderling – 1



I have place two images of the Ruddy Duck along with photos of the other above mentioned birds on my Flickr page:

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.

Not a lot of fall migrants coming through. My best yard sighting has been a female Cassin's Finch the past 2 days, hitting the feeder. Others: White-crowned Sparrows, RC Kinglets, Sandhill Cranes on a nearby stubble field & YR Warbler. No Juncos as of yet. Others: kettle of a dozen Turkey Vultures & small groups of Red-tailed Hawks. Also, a good number of Bald Eagles nearby, including 2 adults, 2 second-yr birds & 2 first-yr birds. Plus, have seen 2 Ospreys, including one carrying a trout in its talons.

What birding has lacked, fly-fishing has more than made up for with the best fall-run of brown trout on the Snake than I've had in years! And the rainbows have been fat & in great condition.

Subject: [IBLE] Teton Valley Saturday evening-small pulse of bluebirds, robins and flickers
Below is my eBird report from the north end of the Big Holes.

Other valley news: someone reported seeing a Whooping Crane 2pm Friday at the Teton River Bates Bridge. They said it flew over with a group of sandhills and it was a large white bird with black wing tips. Friday night at dusk I went to look for it at a roost near the Bates Bridge (which is on the main road heading west from the traffic light in Driggs). A white bird flying low got our hearts beating, but turned out to be a Trumpeter Swan with a green neck collar so one of the swans released in Teton Valley. Saw hundreds of cranes settling in for the night but no Whooping Cranes. There is quite a difference in color between the darkest and lightest cranes but none looked white.

Geez, these people are dedicated! Dealing with the gobs of traffic in coastal California to track a bird the old fashioned way, wow, I tip my hat to them!

All right, the good news is that yesterday (Wednesday September 26, 2018) the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory sighted 74 Broad-winged Hawks moving in our direction.





Obvious question: how long will it take them to get to our latitude? I found the following N=1 data point involving "Journey", which was successfully tracked by GGRO using radio telemetry. (Unlike Red-tailed Hawks, Broad-wings are too small for GPS tracking.) Following a migrating bird with radio telemetry is extremely labor intensive and in the links below you can read the entertaining story of a team of people tracking Journey as it flew from the Bay Area to the US-Mexico border.





Some relevant data points are:


- Wednesday September 23, 2015: Journey gets caught and released in Sausalito, just north of San Francisco


- Wednesday night he roosted just south of San Jose


- Friday night he roosted around our Figueroa Mountain


- On Saturday he was south of LA


- On Monday Journey crossed over the US-Mexico border.





This trip was unusually fast with good weather, but it seems that those 74 Broad-winged Hawks could start showing up in our county as soon as Friday afternoon.





Here's where you can read about the ordeal of tracking this bird:

Subject: [IBLE] Shorebirds on AFR today
Howdy,
Today I went to Willow Bay looking for the jaeger reported yesterday. No luck, but there were a few shorebirds present out east of the silo and at the drying marina. They were: 3 Black-bellied Plovers, 4 Lesser Yellowlegs, 1 Am. Avocet, 1 Long-billed Dowitcher, 12 Pectoral Sandpipers, and 20 Western Sandpipers.
Good Birding!
Chuck Trost

Always forward, never straight...

Subject: [IBLE] More fun arrivals
In addition to Jim's YR Warblers, which have been "infesting" my trees for
several days now, today I had a RC Kinglet joining the fun. This is my first
of the season.

Today I also got to witness a large column of Turkey Vultures rising from
somewhere north of State St. and 30th. Last night we had observed a strung
out line of them making toward somewhere west of 19th and Brumback. I saw at
least 30. Today's kettle, rising on a thermal, consisted of at least 50
birds.

Am. Coots have apparently taken up residence at both Quinn's Pond and
Silver Lake. Yesterday, the group at Silver Lake was accompanied by my first
A. Wigeon of the season, while Quinn's had a raft of Ruddy Ducks yesterday
and a group of 4 today.

WC Sparrows have finally arrived at the hedgerow along Remington St., by Les
Bois track. And today was the first time I've seen Barn Swallows in days,
also at Les Bois.

Thanks to all the new arrivals, my daily counts have been going up again.
(Finally!) But I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

Have been sporadically hearing their "chip" notes around for a few days,
but this morning (Wednesday, 9/26) the trees along a full block near my
house (18th) was dripping with very active Yellow-rumped Warblers.

Subject: [IBLE] Sunday ebird report from Kuna STP
I just saw an ebird report for a pectoral sandpiper at the Kuna sewage treatment ponds. The report is dated today. The is just a reminder that we are not supposed to access the STP when it is closed.

I don’t recognize the birder who submitted the report; he may be new to our birding community. If the STP is open today please forgive this message. But jumping fences isn’t good for birding. And we have been told not to enter the STP when the gate is locked.

I’m not great on fall warblers, but I’m seeing/hearing Yellow-rumped Warblers all over the North End of Boise, as well as along the greenbelt. Red-breasted Nuthatches never really left, but they are noisier now. Still waiting for Kinglets and White-crowned Sparrows.

Big surprise yesterday was finding an Olive-sided Flycatcher in the top of a tree (with large insect in mouth) in a neighborhood midway between State St. and the Boise River. Also had a Black-chinned Hummer and an unidentified hummer in my yard. Hadn’t seen one in a week.

Was out of town for past 2 weeks, so wondering how fall warbler migration has been? Past 2 days, I've seen Yellow-rumped Warblers, Orange-crowned Warblers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Red-breasted Nuthatch & White-crowned Sparrows.. Have reviewed IBLE postings & not reading much about fall warblers. Just getting started or already ending, curious?
