Subject: Quivira report 25 September 2017
Quite an unbelievable change: it has been raining hard almost all day here at Quivira. Those who have visited here in the last month or so will hardly recognize the Refuge, as even by late morning the flats along NE 170th, and many small wetlands, were already showing good quantities of standing water. Roughly 2 inches have fallen as of 3:30, with much more apparently on the way.

The Reddish Egret was still present, along with huge numbers of egrets and shorebirds all along the Wildlife Drive (REEG = northwest corner of Big Salt Marsh).

Construction note: beginning this week, work on replacing the Observation Tower at the south end of Little Salt Marsh will proceed. The work will take up to 3 weeks, with the entrance road to the Tower being closed to vehicle traffic during this time. Access to the LSM photo blind would best be done on foot from the Kids' Fishing Pond.

Subject: Baker Wetlands Survey
Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Dan Larson, Marcia Hawk, Nick Pumphrey surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence, Kansas on September 24.We had 65 species. This was better than previous surveys. We are beginning to see some obvious migration.
One highlight was a stream of Franklin's Gulls.Scott Kimball stayed at one point and counted gulls as they crossed an imaginary line marked by an antennae. In 20 minutes he counted 36,200 Franklin's. They were streaming across the northern edge going east northeast. Obviously they were coming off Clinton Reservoir.
We observed several warblers, Black-and White,Nashville,Northern Parula, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow Warbler, and Palm Warbler. Most were at the south end of Mink Creek.
We had a few duck species and Pectoral Sandpipers were the only sandpiper. We had one mostly white Little Blue Heron.
Blue Jays were moving through as we had our second largest high count.Weather very comfortable, maybe too comfortable for late September. Lots of insects.
The complete count is at the ebird site below.

After I failed to receive a reply from John I decided to give him a call this afternoon. He had just not received it. He dislikes computers as much as ever.

He and Jan are doing fine and as he stated, they are very comfortable. They are still in Missouri near their youngest son. They are not out much except to occasionally bird at a little park near them. Their best yard bird is a fairly regular Mockingbird. He is in good spirits and could hear most of what I had to say. I think he is around 84. We had a nice visit.

Subject: Weekend in NW KS (long)
I joined Jeff Calhoun on a county listing spin in several NW KS counties. The weather was generally working against us, with strong winds on Friday and rain Sunday morning, but we managed to tally county birds in nearly all counties. On the way we stopped at Lake McKinney. Not many birds on the lake, but 5 Western Grebes were hanging on, and we saw both Peregrine and Prairie Falcons. We stopped in Leoti (Wichita county) but didn't net much, although there were 3 American Avocets on the sewer ponds. In Tribune town birding was the key, as we had no birds at the "concrete jungle" and little at the sewer ponds. Red-breasted Nuthatches and Pine Siskins were not hard to find, and we would find them in many places on the trip. We ventured back into the NW part of Wichita county where we had 4 White-faced Ibis at a feedlot pond. We moved on north on a Greeley/Wichita county line road (barely a road) that produced Savannah, Vesper and a Brewer's Sparrow "two-fer". The U road playa in Wallace county was dry, but we had a Cassin's Kingbird on the way, a new county record. 
With the Flatlander Festival going on in Sharon Springs there were no motel rooms to be had, so we spent the night in Colby. Birding the town the next morning produced various birds, with more RB nuthatches, Pine Siskins and Wilson's and Orange-crowned Warblers, which set the tone for the warblers we would find all weekend. We cruised Thomas and Sherman counties with many of the same birds. Next up was Rawlins county, one of my favorite. If you've never driven the road following Beaver Creek through the county you need to add it to your to-do list. Highlights include a Lazuli Bunting and a Black-headed Grosbeak. We stopped in at Atwood Lake to find that the "Smokin' on the Beaver" BBQ fest was going on. What a huge event! Despite all the people, we did have a Forster's Tern on the lake, a new county record. We moved into Sheridan county, with a Great Egret and 7 Snowy Egrets on the state fishing lake. Continuing east into Graham county, we had 4 Great Egrets fly over at Antelope Lake, a new county record. We ended the day with an Eastern Screech-Owl at the Sheridan Wildlife Area.
We rolled the dice on a failing motel in Quinter (turned out okay) and awoke to rain this morning. We rolled through Logan, taking time to bird in Oakley since the rain let up a bit. A Belted Kingfisher on a power line in town was really out of place. With heavy rain we decided to try to get on the back side of the storms and stopped in at Scott SP, and then on to Valley View Cemetery in Garden City, but not finding many birds of note. 
After leaving Jeff's place in Dodge City I made a few stops in Edwards and Pawnee counties. The only thing of note in Edwards was a Cattle Egret on the Offerle sewer ponds. I detoured up to the Ward Feeders pond (former Black-bellied Whistling-Duck spot) in hopes of adding shorebirds to my list and was not disappointed. The large number of shorebirds included a Wilson's and Red-necked Phalarope (the Red-necked is a new record for Pawnee county) and a couple of Semipalmated Plovers. It hadn't rained in that area, so I made my way to Zook playa, where there were still a few shorebirds, including a Black-bellied Plover.

Subject: Birds along Hwy 50 today.
Sara and I drove to Hutchinson and back today on US 50 to attend a wedding. West of Ingalls near the rest area we had a Bald Eagle. Other raptor numbers and ratios, were a little unusual, with a low count of 8 - Red-tailed Hawks, 1 - Harrier, & no Swainson's or Kestrels. The highest Turkey Vulture count that we had was 47 over Kinsley. We had a few small flocks of Franklin's Gulls going south over US 50, primarily south of Quivira.

For the entire trip we observed only one Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. For a two mile stretch between Cimarron & Ingalls we found a dispersed flock of 150 Barn Swallows feeding along the highway and up along the north slope of the Arkansas River valley. We observed only a few other BARS on the rest of the trip.

Subject: Rooks County today
A couple of quick stops at the Stockton WTP yielded some interesting birds.
There were a number of shorebirds including one each American Golden and
Semi-palmated Plovers. Also, at least one each Pectoral, Least, and Baird's
Sandpipers. There were over a dozen American Avocets and a few dabbling
ducks. I also saw at least four American Pipits.

A farm pond south of Glade in Phillips County had a dark Ibis.

We went to Smith Center to see our son's latest wheat harvest film show in
the theater today. Here is the YouTube link if anyone is interested. This
is his sixth year doing this and he says that over 2 million have seen his
Kansas wheat harvest videos featuring his wife and her family on their farm

Subject: Oak Park Wichita
The park was hopping with warblers this morning. Particularly the S. E. corner. I estimated at least 75 Nashvilles. I also saw 7 Orange-crowned, 2 Wilson's, 4 Yellows, 2 Black and Whites, 1 Redstart and late in the morning I stumbled across a Black-throated Green in the tall Burr Oak above the pump. It was the only warbler seen in an Oak all morning. The others seemed to prefer hackberries.
Cheryl Miller joined me mid-morning and got most of the warblers listed. We did get a brief glimpse at a warbler with 2 wing bars but we lost it. I also ran across 10 Brown Thrashers throughout the park.
All in all a pretty good morning. I'll take 7 warbler species on a fall day anytime.

I have been monitoring a Mississippi Kite roost in Winfield for several
days. Each morning about 7:30, they are on a powerline on 19th st. Today
there were 47. This number has been pretty consistent for the past 4-5 days.
I imagine they will depart on the next cold front.

Subject: Raptor migration in Cowley County, 21 September
Despite the southerly winds yesterday morning, there was a pretty good hawk
migration east of Arkansas City in southern Cowley County. From 11 a.m. to
just before noon, I saw 9 species of raptors, almost all flying south,
along a half-mile stretch of road near Camp Horizon: Turkey Vultures (20),
Mississippi Kites (3), Cooper's, Red-tailed, and Broad-winged hawks (2
each, all adults), Swainson's Hawk and Osprey (1 each, flying almost side
by side), Peregrine Falcon (1 adult and possibly a second bird 40 minutes
later), and American Kestrel (1 adult male).

Subject: Probable Northern Goshawk Harvey Co.
Mike Pearce, my husband and I saw a large raptor this morning at our
property. Initially, it was near our small pond dam where we have seen
multiple Bald Eagles, Osprey, and common raptors over the years. This was
a large dark bird with narrow wings and long narrow tail. The wings were
not crooked as much as an Osprey, and gave a longer wing appearance than
Red-tailed Hawks. It did not have the white belly like an Osprey. It flew
in a fast powerful flight and slipped through a small break in the hedgerow
to the south not visible from our angle. Mike had seen a Great Horned Owl
and Sharp-shinned Hawk just before seeing this bird for a good size
comparison. His remark was "It is a bird I've never seen before. It was
very large". I remember seeing the Northern Goshawk reported by others at
McPherson St. Fishing Lake. That date was Sept 19, 2013 which reassured me
a Goshawk could be here on this date although not probable.

Should mention that frigatebird records should be viewed with caution, not because they aren't frigatebirds, but because of which species it might be. Don't assume they are all Magnificent.

They were followed by it as they drove up the road to use the small boat ramp to unload for a teal hunt.

Subject: Franklin's Gull Survey of lakes and reservoirs
Good evening KSBIRDers!

For several years I've talked about doing this so I guess it's time to "get 'er
done!" Below is my proposed plan. I suspect that we will try doing this for
several years so this fall is the trial run to get the bugs worked out. I don't
expect it to work perfectly but let's get it going and give it a shake down
cruise! This same information copied below is also on the ksbirds.org
webiste in a PDF document. Just go to the KSBIRDS.ORG homepage and
you'll find the link. The important thing is to let me know if you want to survey
a lake/reservoir and which one so we can start working out who we might
need to shuffle around so we don't wind up with 30 birders at one reservoir
and none at 3 others!

We know that a very large number of the worlds Franklins Gulls pass
through Kansas each fall. Numbers appear to peak, on average, around
mid-October so this is an attempt to estimate the total number that might be
in Kansas during the fall. Franklins Gulls typically roost for the evening on
the water of larger reservoirs. By utilizing volunteers to survey the larger
reservoirs in the state we will try to estimate the number of Franklins Gulls
within the state on a given day. Volunteers will try to visit on a Saturday or
Sunday (or both) on two (or more) consecutive weekends at, or within 30
minutes of, sunrise.

Pick two consecutive weekends (October 7 & 8, 14 & 15, 21 & 22) and on at
least one day each weekend go to the reservoir you selected at sunrise or
within 30 minutes thereafter, and estimate the number of Franklins Gulls.
You can do both days all three weekends if you want but Id like at least one
day each weekend on two consecutive weekends. On some reservoirs this
number could be quite large and I do not expect an accurate count. Just give
it your best shot!

These are the principle lakes we need volunteers to survey. If you know of a
body of water nearby to you that holds large numbers of roosting Franklins
Gulls, please let Chuck know and then volunteer to survey that water body. If
there is an impoundment on this list that historically does not have Franklins
Gulls roosting overnight on it, please let Chuck know as well. Chucks email
address is <otte2...> If more than one person wants to survey a
particular lake we will allow this although there may be some averaging of
the different estimates that are submitted. Birders may even want to survey
together to come up with an agreed upon survey estimate.

Subject: Waterfowl dispersed plants
Yesterday Dan Hoobler and I were exploring a wetland in Pott County. We
encountered a bulrush that I had never seen before. I went to another
wetland in the county and found it there as well.

It was an upright annual with triangular stems. Nothing matched it in
the Flora of the Great Plains.

I took pictures and sent to Craig Freeman at KU. He said it was
Schoenoplectus mucronatus, an introduced species that was first seen in
Kansas just a few years ago. Seen in Jackson, Jefferson, Douglas...and
now Pott.

Here is a description of it:
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=242101173

The plant's seeds have to be moved around by birds, which I find kind of
interesting. I would think it would be moved from south to north or
north to south but it seems to be known only from scattered locations in
our neighbors in Missouri/Iowa prior to this. Then again it could be in
OK and NE and no one has collected it.

Anyway, might be something for people to look for while they are out in
temporary wetlands.

Subject: Also "Owl attacks on the rise around the Pacific Northwest"
It doesn't seem like owl attacks this late in the season would be related to protection of their nests. But it supposedly often involves joggers with ponytails, and I suppose the owls could mistake those for squirrel tails, especially since it often happens at dusk. Besides ponytails, it would interesting to know how many of the owl attack victims use a lot of styling gel or hair spray that might reflect low light and confuse the owls into mistaking their victim's hair for some kind of prey. Especially since an owl's eyes have a lot more rods and fewer cones,

We had 12 participants on the Wichita Audubon field trip to Quivira NWR and Cheyenne Bottoms today and we saw lots of birds. We started out at the little salt marsh at Quivira, where we studied lots of shorebirds, but also found a juvenile Sabine's Gull, likely the one previously reported. At Unit 28 we saw Virginia Rails and Sora. On the big salt marsh we had 3 Marbled Godwits and the long-staying Reddish Egret. We moved on to Cheyenne bottoms, where we had great looks at Common Gallinules, among many other birds. 62 species tallied in a good day of birding.

As usual, Stan Roth was as accurate as Arlington Time. The Wetlands issue of The Kansas School Naturalist arrived today. The cover art of a cattail marsh included numerous bird species:    Great Blue Heron, Kingfisher, Am Bittern, Harrier, Rw Blackbird, Bufflehead, Pintail, Wood Duck & a Marsh Wren. Let me know if I missed any, they were almost as hard to find as Waldo.

Mr Bob Rose did an excellent job and indeed had a nice section on playas. A topic that was completely new to me was the School Marshes. Emporia State can certainly be proud of their series, which dates back to the Fifties.

Less than ideal birding conditions (wind, heat, and most of the flats along NE 170th being dry) at Quivira this afternoon (15 September), but several areas worth checking. Park Smith Pond is now attracting both shorebirds and ducks, and the south end of Little Salt Marsh has been fairly good for both, also. As reported earlier this week, large numbers of Franklin's Gulls, along with shorebirds and ducks, are using the west shore of Big Salt Marsh along the west side of the Wildlife Drive. It was in this same area that the Reddish Egret was feeding at mid-afternoon, at the very north end of Big Salt Marsh west of the Wildlife Drive.

Subject: Recent Bird Activities of Note
One of the special delights of having a little bit of heaven in the
country, and working to improve or at least maintain habitat for wildlife,
is the reward of experiencing the many varieties of birds that come and go.

An impressive number of hummingbirds have done exactly that in the last
month. At times we have likely had 20 buzzing around the six feeders that
I stationed this summer. It is almost impossible to count them when they
are launching aerial "dogfights" over each feeder, or crossing over the
claimed territories of others. Ten to twenty have been present for a month
or more, but on Tuesday it seemed as if all but two or three had migrated
on south.

As for the Whip-poor-wills, they have been calling each evening up to and
including the second week of September. The three that have been
frequently heard were joined on the evening of September 1 by a Poor-will.
Later that evening when I returned to town I was blessed with my first
grandson! The Chuck-wills-widows seemed to disappear at the end of August.

Since then we have had three Red-shouldered Hawks on one occasion, and
twice during the past week a Pileated Woodpecker has made his or her
presence known--once by flying across the adjacent highway and once with
sound. We're thinning (killing) some of the less desirable trees, but
leaving them stand dead in the forests.

Subject: Sabine's Gull - Quivira NWR
There is a juv. SABINE'S GULL within the 3,000+ Franklin's Gulls on Big Salt Marsh at Quivira NWR in Stafford Co. A Peregrine Falcon flushed the gull flock on the far south end of the lake and it was fairly easily picked out while the birds were in the air. At that distance a scope is absolutely essential.

No - with the changes just being announced in July there is not sufficient
lead time in the book publication process to include those yet in any books
just now being published.

I am in the middle of updating the county checklists to reflect the latest
taxonomic changes. The current Kansas Checklist, reflecting those changes
can be found at: http://ksbirds.org/checklist/KansasChecklist.pdf

By this weekend I'll have updated the listing of Kansas birds with scientific
names, etc. which is linked to the Kansas County Checklist page. I did post
a draft of that list, which I need to go back and tweak now, in early July when
the checklist committee's report was first released. It can be found at:
http://ksbirds.org/Kansas_Checklist_DRAFT_2017.htm That list does show
the Chat changes.

As always, the complete North American Checklist with the most recent
changes can be viewed at:

Subject: Roseate Spoonbill / Reddish Egret - Yes
Hi All,

I had the ROSEATE SPOONBILL at the McPherson Valley Wetlands in McPherson Co. just after 5 PM this evening. It was located in the pool just west of 9th Ave. and north of Arrowhead Rd.

I swung up through Quivira on my way to Great Bend for the night and (eventually) successfully relocated the long staying REDDISH EGRET. At first, it was well west of the handicapped parking pad but as I watched it, it took flight, flying towards me, and landed in the pool just inside the loop to roost for the night. There are thousands upon thousands of birds on Big Salt Marsh and I couldn't do them justice in the dwindling light. Ill be sure to hit this again in the AM.

We made a little bird drive this afternoon out in the Finney County Panhandle. At the Finney Wildlife Area we had 185 White-faced Ibis, 60 Barn Swallows, 1 Bank Swallow, and 1 Juvenile Cliff Swallow. Sara had a kettle of 50 or so Swainson's Hawks close to the Hodgeman County line.

Late this afternoon the UPS driver dropped off our copy of the new 7th edition of the NGS Birds of NA. The first flip through i spottrd a fabulous new plate for the Fox Sparrows, in addition to the tail drawings of the Longspurs, they now have added wing drawings. I don't think they got the latest AOU supplement changes added. The new family name for the Chat was not included.

Subject: A few W. KS highlights from last weekend
  I managed to get roped into doing a window repair in Greensburg on
Saturday, so I invited Tom Ewert along and we birded from about 10 am
Saturday through mid-afternoon on Sunday.  We covered a lot of ground. 
With warm temps and strong south winds, birding was generally slow but
we did find a fair number of migrants on Sunday, especially in Haskell
Co.  A lot of the playas that we had visited in early July were dry or
with greatly reduced surface water.  WF Ibis were in strong numbers in
several counties.

Here are a few things worth mentioning

9/9 Road 33 timber area 7 miles south of Greensburg, Kiowa Co.: 1
Peregrine Falcon.  This is a good birding stop where I always seem to
find something of interest.

9/9 Herron Playa, Ford Co. : 1 Green Heron and 1 Wilson's Snipe. Several
hundred WF Ibis.

9/9 Dog town near Satanta, Haskell Co.: 1 Ferruginous Hawk and 2
Burrowing Owls

9/10 Feedlot pond near Satanta: 1 Sanderling and a few other shorebird
species

9/10 Hugoton Storm Runoff ponds, Stevens Co. : 1 Barn Owl and 1 Belted
Kingfisher

9/10 7 miles SW of Ingalls, Gray Co. : 1-Taiga Merlin

9/10 in town at Cimarron, Gray Co.: 1 Peregrine Falcon

9/10 Satanta City Park, Haskell Co.: 1 Am. Redstart, several Wilson's
Warblers, 1 Ruby Crowned Kinglet, 1 Pine Siskin, 2 Red-breasted
Nuthatches, 1 Gr. Crested Flycatcher, 1 Willow/Alder Flycatcher

9/10 Sublette Shelterbelt: 1 Mourning/Macgillivray's Warbler, too brief
to identify to species.  Also Hairy Woodpecker, House Wren, Brown
Thrasher, E. Kingbird and another Willow/Alder Flycatcher

I could hear the "ziiip" of Pine Siskins this morning, so I stopped weeding
to take a look. I also found a "lurking" Lincoln's Sparrow. EBird called
it rare, so that precipitated some photos. So much for weeding the garden.

Had a very interesting afternoon while running various errands. First, as I went to the garage to make a trip I spotted a pair of Nashville Warblers in the trellis. As I stood watching them, I caught a movement below and saw my second Titan Moth this year !! That now makes a total of 3 we have seen in the yard in the past 20 + years since we started in earnest to attract Hummers and Butterfly's. Although not a bird I thought it significant since a lot of us are also interested in butterfly's and moths. Thanks for humoring me ! Donnie K. in Larned

Not sure if anyone brought it up yet, but the Playa Lakes Joint Venture
has really handy maps of where 'probable' playa lakes occur in parts of
Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
I've utilized these in wetter years and had some decent success in
finding migratory birds-- of course, sometimes you find a playa has been
farmed over... but still a fun way to backroad bird in western KS.

Subject: Zero BBWDs in Larned / 12 Sept.
During my last visit eight days ago we observed the juvenile Black-bellied
Whistling-Ducks take a brief flight. So it came as no surprise that today,
12 September, NONE of the 9 juvenile and 2-3 adult BBWDs were present at
their usual spot SE of Larned. There are many other ponds and such in the
Larned area where they may have moved, but right now we're facing the
likelihood that they've left for good.



Congrats to the many birders who travelled to Larned to see these birds.
We've ordered 20 Fulvous Whistling-Ducks for 2018.

HamiltonBook.com still has the 1998, 7th ed of the AOU Check-List of North American Birds remaindered at just shy of eight bucks. I paid 50 twenty years ago. So if you ever wanted an AOU check-List it would be a good time to grab one. I have not read what the new AOS will be doing for an 8th edition. There is always talk of online, but the presses keep publishing lots of paper bird books.

Don't buy the 1983 - 6th edition unless you can pick it up for 25 cents. Now the 1957 - 5th edition is a whole different story. It is the last edition which lists subspecies. I think it is starting to get scarce, now in the $20 - $50 range. You just never know what the supply is going to be. It all depends on the thousands of local libraries and when they will be faced with downsizing. They have to get rid of books so they can put in a couple more banks of computers.

Terry and Sam Mannell reported a family group of common gallinules three
days ago at Lassiter Marsh in Jefferson County. I went looking for them
this morning. I found five immatures and managed to photograph of couple
of them. I never saw adults although I heard a call from deeper in the
reeds. The immatures were quite skittish, often disappearing into the
reeds for quite some time before reemerging into view.

The road that goes past the marsh is closed at both ends by gates. I
walked from the west end of the road to the dike that is about midway in
the marsh. The gallinules were about 3/4ths of the way to the dike.

I took my niece horseback riding in Missouri close to I-29 north of
Kansas City. We were the first ride of the day. As we came to a nice
grassy area a group of birds flew up that sure sounded like Smith's
Longspurs. Isn't this a little early to be having those show up?

Thanks, Sue Newland

Subject: Subject: Playa
Mr. Burkepile and Kansas birders, I have thought about your question several times in recent decades, but did not follow-up on the topic. The first playa where I remember watching birds was just northwest of the town of Plains in western Meade County on July 4th, 1964. There was a good variety of birds there, including a male Cinnamon Teal along with Yellow-headed Blackbirds which I recorded in my field notes. I recorded the place as a marsh. When Sara, a Scott County native, and I were first married she, along with her father, uncle and brothers just called them ponds. We both call them playas now, but cannot give you a date of the transition.

The following is only a scratch on the surface of the topic. I made a quick check of the publications in my library that could shed some light on the subject. The index for the Transaction of the Kansas Academy of Science (TKAS) covering the period 1872 through 1965, has no entries for playa. The run of publications including a thesis, directories and Birds in or of Kansas, including: Long 1935; Goodrich 1946; Tordoff 1956; Johnston 1960, 1964, & 1965; Rising 1974; Thompson and Ely 1989; do not mention playas in the opening sections of those publications. TEGOPSY (2011) Birds of Kansas mentions “ephemeral playas” once in the paragraph on natural lakes. Mosby & Lynn (1956) Water Birds Resident in Kansas in Summer, 1955. TKAS, does not list types of water features other than lakes & ponds. Zuvanich & McHenry (1964) Comparisons of Water Birds Observed in Kansas in 1955 and 1963. TKAS, mention water features such as: sewer lake, marsh, state & city lakes, reservoir, pond, slough, and surface water. It is apparent that they called playas, “surface water” by the locations mentioned. The first paper on birds and playa lakes in Kansas was most likely by Tom Flowers (1996) Classification and Occurrence of the Birds of the Playa Lakes of Meade County, Kansas. KOS Bull. 47(2): 21-28., <http://www.ksbirds.org/kos/bulletin/Vol47No2.pdf>.

Doc Sutton in his 1967 book, Oklahoma Birds, does not mention playa but apparently describes one nicely ------ “Webb Lake (near Hardesty, Texas County), an impressive body of water when there has been plenty of rain, but dry as a bone in periods of severe drought.” Baumgartner & Baumgartner (1992) Oklahoma Bird Life, has a photo of and labels the picture a Playa Lake, north of Boise City.

So, Mr. Burkepile, please let us know what you find out from the old-timers up around Hoxie on what they call playa lakes, and thanks for bringing up the subject.

Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks and the Roseate Spoonbill were seen today in
their reported spots.

Took a spin through the Pawnee Co Landfill thinking if I was a Roadrunner I
would hang out here and was not disappointed. Just east of the shop a
roadie ran from the metal pile to the cedars along the north side of the

Blew through the Q too quickly to see what Mike did...

Subject: Special Hummingbird in Oak Park
Hi Folks,

Had about half a dozen plus, hummers in Oak Park this afternoon. One of the hummers got my attention. It was being chased around, and I noted it had a short tail, I suspected a possible Calliope. At about fifty feet, sitting still in a tree, I was able to zoom in and get a better look, and take some pictures and some video. Looking thru the camera lens, I noted the hummer probably wasn’t a Calliope. But, it was a interesting mystery and I was hoping I could solve it when I got home and could look closer at the pictures. Well, I did get a closer look and I did solve the mystery. I was lucky. I easily saw the tail was short, and the wing was long. The hummer showed it’s wing was as long as it’s tail. That feature is special for hummingbirds found in Oak Park. Then I noted, I had a excellent back lighted pictures of it’s wing feather shapes at the end of the feathers. That was a diagnostic event because, I easily noted the feathers were that of female Black-chinned hummingbird, which has very special feathers shapes, much different than it’s cousin the Ruby-throated hummingbird. Also, the Ruby-throateds wing is shorter than it’s tail. Along with the bill shape, the head shape and it’s markings, also with the dingy color of the breast, I’m positive it was a female Black-chinned hummingbird. Similar, to one I found in Oak Park a couple of years ago. Black-chinned hummingbirds are rare in Kansas.

I did see my first Warbler in Oak Park this fall. It was a Wilson’s.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Hi all


I went through Quivira this afternoon and was able to find the immature Sabine's Gull at the Little Salt Marsh, sitting with some terns and Ring-billed Gulls. Tons of Franklin's Gulls, ducks and shorebirds at the Big Salt Marsh. Quite a few egrets and ibis there too and the Reddish Egret was southwest of the handicap parking pad rather than its usual recent location of inside the loop. Other birds of interest included what I think was a Ross's Goose with some ducks and two Marbled Godwits.

The new issue of ESU biology’s KANSAS SCHOOL NATURALIST done by Bob Rose, will be out in a few days. Title: WETLANDS IN KANSAS. It will, among other things, differentiate playas from nonplayas, direct readers to sites in KS and more. The Naturalist is available as a free subscription or by inquiry to ESU biology Dept., Richard Schrock editor. It was started, primarily for teachers and students, in the early 1950’s when ESU was known as Kansas State Teachers College. That has a really familiar ring to many of us!

Subject: Cheyenne Bottoms Report
Hello all.

It's been great seeing and talking to many of you this season. Thanks for stopping by the KS Wetlands Education Center.

The hot topic this week at the KWEC/Cheyenne Bottoms has been pelicans. Thanks to the article in the Wichita Eagle last week, we have been overrun with people looking for big white birds. It's been great. And, the birds have cooperated with thousands of pelicans able to be seen most trips through the Bottoms. Evenings seem to be a great time to see the birds being more active.

I thought a quick report from Cheyenne Bottoms might be helpful to some of you that might be heading this way in the coming weeks.

KDWPT staff have been moving water in most pools of the Wildlife Area in preparation for the hunting seasons. Of which, early teal season begins this Saturday and runs through Sept. 24, FYI. As a result of this moved water, the shorebird habitat (that was viewable from roads previously) is mostly gone now. While I'm sure we have a good number of shorebirds here, there is no concentration of them at this point with the deeper water.

With that said, wading birds are plentiful. The sheer numbers of egrets and herons area-wide is downright impressive.

For gull enthusiasts, I've noticed a big influx in gull numbers over the last week. Franklin's and Ring-billed as far as my abilities go, but I'm sure some other good species cold be spotted if anyone is interested in doing some scanning.

I have not heard of any out of the ordinary sightings recently, but there has been plenty to see. Check ebird for some recent posts if you are interested in a species list.

That is all for now. Have a great weekend.

Robert gave an accurate answer. I also grew up in NW KS and we called them lagoons. Not sure that there even were sewer lagoons at that time. Farmers in the area still call them lagoons - which could be good information for birders who are in western KS looking for water to bird.

Water in the lagoons was always a good sign. At least we had some rain and would maybe have a crop that year. The memory of the toads singing when the lagoons had water is still a favorite of my childhood.

For the most part, we didn't know the names most of the birds, but the whirling ones (phalaropes) were always fascinating.

Hi, Kansas birders,

I continue to be fascinated by the use of the word "playa" on posts on Kansas Birds.
I grew up in Hoxie, Sheridan County. I lived their full time for the first
18 years of my life, summers during college and at least annual visits in the 50 years since college. Never once did I ever hear the word "playa"
used.

I recently surveyed my Facebook friends who live in Sheridan County or who grew up there. Some of them know the word "playa" but they don't use it.
They use the word "lagoon".

So, I have questions.

Why do you use the word "playa" (which my Spanish-English dictionary translates as "beach")? I've seen very few beaches in western Kansas.

Is there a difference between a lagoon and a non-beach playa?

Thank you for any consideration you want to give to these silly questions.

Sincerely,

People just called them mudholes around here. A good place to bury a tractor. Or a pickup. I remember when we were hunting back in the 60s one guy drove out into the middle of a playa and got stuck. We had to borrow about 300' of chain from nearby farms to pull him out!

Calling them playas isn't merely a matter of style, it's the generally accepted term used by both science and government in referring to ephmeral wetlands of the Great Plains. I'm not sure when the USDA and USFWS and other agencies started using the term 'playa', but these days it appears in the title of many studies like this one:

https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/nrcs143_013365.pdf

There must have been a push to use 'playa' in government documents about 25 years ago, at least when I first saw it gaining prominence in the soil conservation business. I'm sure someone reading this knows even more.

I find this discussion fascinating as I do anytime local geographical features
are described. Further south in Texas, ponds or playas are often called
tanks.

I think it is interesting here to consider the string of features from Texas
north in to Canada through the Great Plains. For the most part you have a
continuim of natural ephemeral water holding depressions. In dry years
these are dry and can be nearly devoid of life. In wet years they hold water
and can be teaming with life. In the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma, Kansas
and part of Colorado we call them playas. you get up into Nebraksa and you
have the Rainwater Basin region. Our family farm in extreme northwest York
County Nebraska was on the edge of this region. I grew up with a 600 acre
basin to the immediate south. Spring summer and early fall would find me
riding my bicycle down to them to go birding and in the late fall and winter I
would hunt in them. I grew up calling these depressions basins and they
were rich with bird life. The Sandhills of Nebraska have their own amazing
aquatic topography and then you move into the Dakotas and the Prairie
Provinces of Canada and you have the Prairie Potholes. Elmer just referred
to them as sloughs and I've heard that term before as well. Many different
names and subtle differences yet all these areas are critical ecological
systems maintaining life for thousands of species!

Subject: Re: Playa
That’s a great question Dick, and the term playa was first used by Spanish explorers that found these sites. The definition for a playa is also a flat-floored bottom of an undrained desert basin that becomes at times a shallow lake. Or for Kansas a shallow basin with no outlet which periodically fills with water to form a temporary lake.

Hi, Kansas birders,

I continue to be fascinated by the use of the word "playa" on posts on
Kansas Birds.
I grew up in Hoxie, Sheridan County. I lived their full time for the first
18 years of my life, summers during college and at least annual visits in
the 50 years since college. Never once did I ever hear the word "playa"
used.

I recently surveyed my Facebook friends who live in Sheridan County or who
grew up there. Some of them know the word "playa" but they don't use it.
They use the word "lagoon".

So, I have questions.

Why do you use the word "playa" (which my Spanish-English dictionary
translates as "beach")? I've seen very few beaches in western Kansas.

Is there a difference between a lagoon and a non-beach playa?

Thank you for any consideration you want to give to these silly questions.

Sincerely,
Dick Burkepile

Subject: Marion county Red-shoulded hawks
I went behind my house to the pond today. I saw 2 red shouldered hawks. 1 was mature and the other was a juvenile. Both were calling and I saw both in full light. In over 30 years birding Marion County this was the first time I have seen this hawk in the county. Migrant action was slow, but I ended up seeing a pair of American redstarts by the spring behind the house.
One other odd note: Morton county is greener than Marion County right now. I saw standing water in the shelter belt at Elkhart, a week ago. How often does that happen? Best wishes to all, Jim Nickel

Subject: Morton County
I am working in Amarillo, TX now. So on the way to and from I stopped in Morton County.
On the way to, a week ago, it was very slow birding. I saw around 20 black crowned night herons. Half adult and have juvenile. Mostly they were around the stagnant pond, below the lagoons.
I talked to Tom Gillespie, city employee, and birder (at least he has a bird book in his truck). He said he mows the area around the shelter belt, so people can enjoy the area. He is a good man. He told me he had seen ibis and a long billed curlew at the lagoons recently. I saw no birds in the shelter belt, except for a barn owl.
What a difference a week makes for birds. On the return trip, today, the shelter belt had lots of birds. I walked it three times and each time there were different birds. I saw 20+ wilsons warblers, a American redstart, Townsend's warbler ( I think, but if someone thinks black throated green is more likely, say something since my look was very brief), 5 ruby crowned kinglets, blue gray gnatcatcher, several thrushes ( Swainson's likely, but again brief looks on some) many flycatchers ( where is an experienced flycatcher person when you need them?) lots of vireos including 3-4 blue headed, warbling. Is red eyed possible?, I had a good look at a hummer ( perched in full light) and I believe it was a black throated female, western wood peewee, I saw many empidonax flycatchers 1 possible dusky, 3 red breasted nuthatches, barn owl. The lagoons: avocet, lots of blue wing ducks, lots of Shovelers, and 2 eared grebes. Work station: Say's Phoebe. Middle springs= mystery bird, I saw a flycatcher phoebe/kingbird size very briefly, with buff/russet wing bars, looked kind of like eastern kingbird or phoebe, but the wing bars were odd. Also a loggerhead shrike. I saw lots more birds, but this is all I can remember for now.
I would like to hear what other people think since my Morton County experience is not as much as some other people have. What a day! These are the days I'm glad to be a birder. Thanks Jim Nickel

I'm still seeing roadrunners almost every trip I make to Kingman and Harper
counties. I've been seeing one consistently in a farmyard right along the
highway south of Kingman, but also NOT seeing it fairly often too, so who
knows? It was there on Saturday, 2 September.

And then on 4 September I surprised a roadrunner that may have been hiding
behind a round bale, at least it took off like a rocket about 10 seconds
after I parked next to the bale. This was in extreme southern Kingman
County.

All the Larned roadrunners have sooooo many places to hide that it's almost
pointless to even search from them, but every few weeks I'm still seeing one
or two at the K-19 intersection s. of Larned.

Subject: Roseatte Spoonbill found it!
Got to the wetlands east of Inman at 9th and Arrowhead just past 7 pm. Two
women there said they had spotted it but it had flown east a short time
before so I started walking the trail to the dike. At least a good 2/3 of
the way down to the other end of the dike, after passing pool after pool of
many other birds - gulls, egrets, herons - came upon the spoonbill seining
back and forth in the water with its bill. Very active fishing. After
watching it in the binoculars and then taking a few more steps down the
dike, it took off to the east, circled slowly back west and came right
towards me, flying about 15 feet over my head and then landed about half way
back in the pools along the dike with some gulls and ducks and continued
feeding. Very pink. Stood out with all the white egrets around. Could see
the bill very distinctly in flight.



Very, very cool.

Subject: SW Kansas Birds
Henry Armknecht, Kevin Groeneweg, and I visited various counties in
southwest Kansas this holiday weekend and had a very well executed
'winging-it' adventure that I'll remember for a long time. Few birds are
chaseable but the overall report is interesting:

On Saturday we had our first Red-breasted Nuthatch of the trip in Sublette
(Haskell Co), and at least 22 Burrowing Owls at a Prairie Dog town hardly 5
acres in size. In n central Stevens County we documented a Northern Goshawk
soaring over the countryside, a state bird for two of us. The birding at
Frazier Park in Ulysses was exceptional both Saturday evening and Sunday
morning. Birds seen there included Grant Co's first Chesnut-sided Warbler
as one of six Warbler species and the only Pine Siskin of the trip. A dozen
late Purple Martins at the Ulysses WTP and a Merlin snatching a Barn
Swallow out of the Grant Co sky were surprising, we really did well there.
Sunday, a lingering Long-billed Curlew at a pond was neat in sw Hamilton
Co, but I was more selfishly ecstatic to finally see a Curve-billed
Thrasher in that county up in Coolidge. That evening was spent in Kearny
County where an adult Bald Eagle surprised us at the Lakin diversion dam.
We especially enjoyed Lake McKinney, where we counted 28 Western Grebes and
saw a Western Tanager. This Monday morning we hiked a bit at Ford Co SFL
and saw many of the same migrants we've enjoyed over the weekend and also
had a single flyover Red Crossbill.

Many other marginaly interesting birds were noted; a bread crumb trail is
on eBird. The trip list will be impressive and county list additions
numerous for each of us after all the accounting is complete. Painted Lady
butterflies were everywhere, Sunflowers for days. Mule Deer bucks are
always neat as are the more westerly Pronghorns and the elusive Bobcat
spotted on this trip. Good friends and a great time!

This evening I had two kettles of Mississippi Kites over my house. Both had

been around for 3-4 years has either taken off for greener pastures or met
its maker! It hasn't been seen now for 4 days.

Gene and I have visited the Slate Creek Wetlands a couple of times. There
have been a variety of shorebirds but nothing very exotic.

My brother Eric and I toured a few SW Kansas counties today and yesterday
birding a bit. Best spots included Lakeview Playa east of Meade with a
moderate mix of water birds (Ibis, a coot, Blue-winged Teal, Mallard and a
single dowitcher I'm still sorting out but leaning to juvenile short-billed
based on amount of color in the tertials). Songbirds were rather quiet.
The most interesting spot was Arkalon Park by Liberal with a very
photogenic and posing Roadrunner and a lone Olive-sided Flycatcher. The
park also had many Red-headed Woodpeckers.

Subject: Re: No Roseatte Spoonbill Sept 2nd
We drove up from Wichita this morning - Sunday. Saw the spoonbill about 9:00 am at the Little Sinkhole. It was with about 40 egrets in the trees on the west side of the road, at 9th & Arrowhead. Other folks were arriving when we left. It was still present, in all it's glory! Pretty active, flitting from tree to tree and grooming itself.

All,


I was able to meet Rob Penner and spent a few hours at Cheyenne Bottoms yesterday afternoon. We had the following list:

Best birds were a young and an adult Common Gallinule and a 1st year Laughing Gull. It's always great to spend time in the field with Rob!

Nothing too exciting but satisfying to see lots of birds there. Best observation was David Seibel! It was great to talk to him and see him out and about after recent health issues have kept him out of the field. I hope to see a lot more of him in the future!

All,


Rob Penner and I had a conversation with Kelli Egbert at Cheyenne Bottoms yesterday (9/1/17) and she mentioned that she had seen on a photographer's Facebook page that someone had observed 2 Roseate Spoonbills at McPherson State Lake. She thought she had seen the post last Monday and has no other details, but I thought I'd mention it here in case anyone was headed out there and could keep an eye out for them if there are some.

Subject: Spoonbill
Hi Folks,

I decided today I needed a break from hummingbirds in Oak Park, so I zipped up to McPherson County late this morning. (From Wichita, I-135 to Mound Ridge Ks, West on Arrowhead RD through Mound Ridge, to eight miles West, at first stop sigh from Mound Ridge, which is 14th ave, turn left for 1mile, then turn right on Arapaho Rd going West, use10th and 11ave going North to Marshes about 1 mile). Thought I would instantly find the Roseate SpoonbillI and I arrived at 11:30 at the Big Sink Hole on 10 ave. I saw nothing. Eventually I found 5 Snowy Egrets at the Little Sink Hole, across the road to the East from the Big Sink Hole, with about a half mile walk East, along the weedy road along the dike, I had heard the Spoonbill was hanging around Snowy Egrets, but the Spoonbill wasn’t with them. Those Egret flew West out of sight. So I went West, to 9th ave and found the marshes over there, and the small lake just North of Arrowhead Rd, right next to 9th ave. Arrowhead Rd is incomplete for a few miles between 9th and approximately 11th ave, with marshes in it’s unused place. Some Egrets were there, but no Spoonbill. I wondered if the trees along that small lake, were where the Spoonbill was seen in the past. So I went back to 10th ave taking a long walk back into the marshes to the West. It looked to me the marshy area went all the way to 9th ave. I gave up after about a mile walk and went back to my car. I did see lots of Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue and Great Blue herons, even a few Pelicans and Ibis. As I was driving away going back to Wichita, I decided to make one check on 9th ave at the small lake, just North of Arrowhead Rd. Making a long story short, whoops, to late, I found the Spoonbill in the trees it was almost 2:30, at about one hundred yards, on the Westside of the lake. I was able to get some nice pictures and videos. I noticed this spoonbill doesn’t show much pink, and it’s head is totally white with green eyes. It would be difficult to ID from a distance, from all the other white water birds around the area. Maybe a 1st year immature. Although, it does show more pink under it’s wing when the wings are raised up, and it’s spoon bill is obvious if seen close enough.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

We went over to 10th and Arrowhead and found the bird in the trees with several egrets and Little Blue Herons in the pond on the west side of 10th. It gave a brief good view, then went down to the water behind the trees, basically out of sight. This was between 11:00 am and 11:30 am on 8/31/17. I heard a calling Fish Crow just to the east of out location and we saw at least a dozen huge northern water snakes out sunning on some tree branches just out of the water. Some were bigger than Mary's arm! Pretty cool birds and other stuff there.

Subject: Hummingbirds, Oak Park Wichita
Hi Folks,

It has been a slow year for Hummingbirds in Oak Park, here in Wichita. Similar to last year. This is my 12th year, with no breaks. I have noticed that in the dry years, more hummingbirds are in Oak Park looking for food. This year is a wet year as was last year. This year I only had 6 feeders out, normally I would have twice as many. Note: I determine the amount of feeders by how quickly the sugar water disappears. If I come in the next morning and the feeders are empty, I add feeders until that doesn’t happen. I have found that if a hummingbird finds the feeder empty, they move on and don’t come back. August is always the month for the passing through of the most migrant hummingbirds heading South for the winter. Early September will have some, but in the last week I have seen a significant drop off of hummers coming to the feeders and I’m going to be removing some of the feeders soon. Yesterday, there were about 5. Looking back it seems the hummers peaked around the 10th of August which is earlier than normal. At the peak I estimate there were between 10 to 15 hummingbirds using the feeders in Oak Park. Most of you will think that is a lot of hummingbirds, but Oak Park normally has twice as many as that. This year I have seen Calliope and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds more than normal and I have some video of them. Last year I got nice video and pictures of both Calliope and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds, over the years I have gotten used to their special features and I can find them easier every year.

There is another aspect to my hummingbird watching in Oak Park and that is the hummingbird nesting that takes place. Last year in the summer, there were about 10 different female Ruby-throated hummingbirds coming to my control feeder in Oak Park. That means there were probably that many nests in the immediate area of the feeder. The foliage was so thick last year I wasn’t able to find any of the nests. This year there were about half as many female Ruby-throated hummingbirds coming to the feeder, which a significant drop from last year, I don’t know why that has happened. But, this year I was able to find a nest and the adult female Ruby-throated female was one of the birds that was using my feeder about 200 feet from the nest. I was able to document the nest, although it was about 30 feet up. In time the fledglings got bigger and bigger and happily eventually fledged. Within a couple of days, I noted the newly fledged nestlings were using the feeder, probably because their mother led them to it. Eventually, they melted into the hummingbird population and I lost track of them. That happened in June.

Next in Oak Park, Warblers. After watching Hummingbirds all summer, it is interesting to notice that warblers are much bigger than hummingbirds. In the spring, when the warblers first show up, they are much smaller than the birds we have been watching all winter. Finally, the city got the Eastern pump fixed in Oak Park, about a month ago, so the NE brook will be a good place to see warblers. Although, last spring was the worst warbler showing I’ve experienced in Oak Park. Hopefully, this fall will be better.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Subject: First Mississippi Kite nesting in Washington
I received a report yesterday about a possible Mississippi Kite nest in the city of Washington. I followed up in the evening and saw the nest but the birds were gone. As I was talking to the homeowner, I did see one individual fly past, a first for me in Washington County.

He said there were five kites there at one point. So three babies fledged. They were in the process of removing the nesting tree a couple weeks ago when they found the nest with one nestling still on it. They took pictures of this bird which confirmed a fledgling molting into its adult feathers. They quit cutting down the tree until the birds were all gone (thankfully), but they plan to remove the rest soon. The tree was huge. The nest was maybe 30-40 feet up? They had a scissor-lift or something, so they could get really definitive pictures.

I’m surprised they didn’t contact me. I’m usually the go-to person for strange birds in this county. They did contact the local game warden (who I don’t even know) who confirmed it was a Mississippi Kite when going through a field guide, but evidently they must not have reported the sighting or nesting record any further? Kind of disappointed in that.

I was definitely surprised and excited to receive this news and confirmation of nesting. Seems like the range expansion continues.

Dr Bob Mc Elroy and I birded mainly Kingman County but stopped in McPherson
County to see the Roseate Spoonbill.We were not disappointed. Terry Mannell
was there to point out the spoonbill immediately.Although I was hoping to
get to 75 species in Kingman County I didn't quite make it. Our best bird
in Kingman County was an Osprey at Cheney Reservoir, Kingman County.
We did have a pleasant and enjoyable day.

Subject: Rusty Blackbirds
I see Rusty Blackbirds in late winter or early spring most years around our farm in Morris County, but I had never seen them during the fall migration until Tuesday. I saw about 20 birds in a tall cedar and verified through my binoculars they were Rusties. Further investigation led to discovery of many more feeding in a nearby soybean field. Ultimately I saw about 100 Rusty Blackbirds. I don't know what they were eating, as I couldn't see any insects on the beans where they were feeding. The flock was along Clarks Creek, 1 1/2 miles west of Latimer,-- Gary Haden, Manhattan

Subject: Larned BBWD update / 30 Aug.
Today was the first time I looked at the 9 juvenile Black-bellied Whistling
Ducks that were hatched and raised SE of Larned and thought "I bet they can
FLY!" I didn't actually see them do it, but their size and feather growth
suggest they are almost there. Only one adult BBWD, (I'm guessing the mom),
remains with the brood, at least when I observed them. I never know whether
I'll see them again. This may have been it.



There are still a couple hundred other shorebirds and ducks at this same
playa at the extreme S end of the Ward Feed Yard property, but I saw nothing
of much interest.



Otherwise very very quiet birdwise. No hummers now for 10 days at our
house. Fall migration is off to an abysmal start.

Tom, your paper is a model of how it should be done. But, it's 2017, and the BOK was done in 2011, your work 2011. If you are so insecure in that thinking your work isn't important that's your problem. But, I'd like to think a potential new manuscript would start with your very fine paper.

Your contributions to KS ornithology are tremendous, but let your demons go. Your contributions to KOS are second to none, but your continued bashing, for whatever reasons, are diminishing your luster...let the demons go.

You are respected for your contributions to KS ornithology, KOS, and the understanding of the history of ornithologist who are from or worked in KS. How can you not be happy with that? Let the demons go!

You take everything as a personal assault. My intent was to get folks to submit manuscripts. There was a thread concerning whether or not the first spoonbill was from the hurricane (started on FB). There was a response, likely not and why. Then 3 more show up as the hurricane pound TX. Coincidence? Post breeding wondering? Great breeding year? New breeding locales? Maybe every KS spoonbill record could be examined with weather data. Ideas, Tom, questions Tom, the essence of science, the advancement of such. It has nothing to do with a personal attack on your fine work. Now release the demons, set yourself free and submit some manuscripts so you can continue the exemplary contributions to understanding the avifauna of KS and the Great Plains.

I was outside Hays Middle School with some students on Monday 8/28 when I noticed the shadows of three birds land in the tree above my head. It was not a big tree and it seemed strange that the birds were that willing to land close to us. When they took off, they gave the distinct call of a Red Crossbill. Don't ask me which one, but they were definitely crossbills.

Hello,

My name is Paul Waters and I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Park Management and Conservation at Kansas State. As part of my studies I am doing research on the motivations of birders and their participation in citizen science projects. I would appreciate if you could assist with this research by taking a survey about your personal opinions of birding and citizen science. The results from this survey will inform my research that will enable citizen science project developers to better understand their participants and create or alter projects in order to better serve both birders and the scientific community. Your help is very important to the success of this project. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes.

A great find! Roseate Spoonbills are certainly capable of long-distance vagrancy, it's just that they don’t make it this far very often.

These back-to-back sightings remind me of driving all the way from Nekoma to Melvern Res. on 1 Sept 1986 to see a very distant Roseate Spoonbill (found by Marvin Schwilling if memory serves) by looking west from the Hoch Road causeway. A mere 500 mile trip for me, an absolutely brilliant decision on my part. However, I felt considerably less wise five days later on 6 Sept 1986 when Ted Cable and I saw another Roseate Spoonbill sailing over the Nature Conservancy area NW of Cheyenne Bottoms, just 30 miles from my house.

A small group of birders traveling back from Burroughs Audubon Quivira and Cheyenne Bottoms field trip were able to relocate the Roseate Spoonbill this afternoon.
The bird was on the far west side of Little Sink in a back area with limited viewing between trees. It was moving around a bit but generally staying in that protected area.

Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Sam Richards, Nick Pumphrey, and Dan Larson surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence, Kansas on August 27 2017. We started the survey on a pleasant cloudy day that was finally curtailed by rain at 11 AM. We found 53 species.Jenny Kilburg, Roger Boyd, Susan Iverson, Marcia Hawk and Roger Boyd did a survey on Wenesday, August 23 and had 55 species. Previous years on this date: 2016- 65; 2015 - 76 (good shorebirds and passerines); 2014 - 57; 2013 - 44; 2012 - NA; 2011 - 45.We did find a Sora today and a Brown Thrasher both have not been counted for awhile.  We still had 68 Sedge Wrens, a significant number but less than half from previous survey (166).

Subject: Central Kansas Burroughs Field Trip Report
This weekend 20 people from the Northeast Kansas area participated with the
Burroughs Field Trip to central Kansas. With the help of five locals, we
collectively tallied over 120 species around Quivira, Cheyenne Bottoms, and
Larned.

After fortuitously stumbling upon a Roseate Spoonbill on our way west we
checked around Big Salt Marsh at Quivira. We had a nice variety of
shorebirds. A complete list is found in the link below.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38825034

We returned to Quivira Saturday morning and were ecstatic to have great
views of King Rails, Virginia Rails, and Sora. For the second day in a
row the group was unsuccessful in finding the Reddish Egret but the Common
Gallinules at Unit 28 were present.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38852515

Saturday afternoon we headed to Larned and enjoyed a pair of Black-headed
Grosbeaks, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, and White-winged Doves in Pawnee
County.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38837432

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38838174

Sunday morning we waited out the scattered showers and were treated to
Common Gallinules and Western Grebes at Cheyenne Bottoms.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38851882

We are grateful for the help and hospitality of Barry Jones, John Olson,
Mike Bader, Scott Seltman, Donnie Kazmaier and Curtis Wolf. An unexpected,
but very pleasant, surprise was a visit from Nick Varvel.

Good Birding,

Malcolm Gold (Overland Park, KS)

Subject: Re: Roseate Spoonbill McPherson County near Inman
We arrived at the Little sink on 9th around 10 this morning in a light rain. We took to walking East to see better the water holes out among all the vegetation as when we left the area yesterday afternoon seeing lots of birds out there but tired and not wanting to walk in further. But this morning we walked in further and did see the spoonbill fly and set down, so walked back to car and drove over to the Big Sink on 10th and walked in on the dike quite a way to the waterhole we thought it might be at. As we approached a couple picked up to fly and one was definitely pink! We got nice look with our binoculars and watched it fly side by side with a white egret off to the southwest and towards the 9th road Little Sink. Can say we saw it!! Also saw American Pelicans, Canada Geese, Great Blue Herons ,White-faced Ibis, Little Blue Herons, many of those immature and some ducks. Wet but wonderful!!

A little more specific on the Roseate Spoonbill. seen this AM at the Little
/ BIg Sinkhole near Inman, KS. I walked the dike from 10th Ave (Rd)
walking to the west. The dike path takes off just a bit sound on 10th Ave
from the curve around the big sinkhole. A waterway separates the dike from
the pool where the egrets and the spoonbill were feeding. My look was of a
large pink bird flying away. I'm not sure what put them to flight as I
could not see them.

Additional birds included a Peregrine Falcon diving at shorebirds and once
even a duck along with a number of shorebirds (had to ID as it was very
dark from an approaching storm). Two Northern Harriers were working the
fields around the sinkholes. I had never walked back into this area
before. Even if the spoonbill ends up not being present one would have a
great birding experience at this location. I would have birded longer but
a cold front in the form of a thunderstorm moved in.

Subject: Marion County
I hit a few of the ebird hotspots in Marion County this AM starting with
the park in Peabody and the Peabody cemetery (Park okay with the usual and
the cemetery dead in terms of birds) followed by the 150th street and
Cottonwood River bridge south of Marion where I had a Wilson's Warbler
among a good mix of other birds. Two massive kingfishers on the electric
line appeared out of place just west of the bridge. Marion Res. Dam hosted
a bunch of Franklin's Gulls and an Osprey that picked up a good sized fish
by the beach on the east side of the dam. The upper end of the lake at
Durham Cover had plenty of Pelicans and Cormorants. By 11:00 songbirds
were quiet and I called it quits. No spoonbills! 51 species total.

Breakfast at the PamLee Bakery in Marion which is worth a stop any day for
scones, muffins and rolls. Neat little place with friendly staff and a
clean neat seating area (not the basic donut shop plastic appearance).
Highly recommended.

Great bird! Not sure how long it'll stay around, but a reminder that dove season begins Sept. 1. and there will be hundreds of hunters at a few locations at the wetlands.
On Sept. 9, the special teal season opens and that place will be packed.
Not at all worried about it getting shot, but I assume it might be moving on because of the noise.
