Subject: Re: Friday Evening in Lawrence
I live in Se Shawnee County. I observe at this time of year loose flocks of Franklin’s sometimes seeming to go south sometimes to go west and sometimes spiraling upwards seemingly riding the thermals. When flying loose and erratic I think they might be catching insects in the air. In the evening I see them making a beeline to the east towards Clinton.
The Wakarusa River is about 3 miles south. Lake Shawnee is about 4 miles north. The Kansas River is further north. Clinton Reservoir is about nine miles east.

Subject: RB Nut story
Greetings,

With all the reports of red-breasted nuthatches in the state, this siting is not notable in itself, but how it came about might give you a chuckle.

I was sitting on the deck in the sun listening to a distant “eh eh eh eh “ that didn’t sound like a white-breasted nuthatch. Then I saw a tiny bird fly from the pine where I was hearing it and over the house. I got out my phone and pulled up a red-breasted nuthatch call to see if that was indeed what I heard. The next thing I knew, there was an rb nut perched on the shepherd’s crook right beside me, calling loudly and looking for his cousin!

I startled and he startled and flew off. But now I know for sure they are here! Welcome back!

Roger & Jan Boyd, Scott Kimball, and Dan Larson surveyed Baker Wetlands,
Lawrence, Kansas on Sunday October 21, 2018.
We believe we found a couple of Neotropic Cormorants, A photo was taken
and included in the ebird report.
It was a beautiful fall morning. There were many ducks and sparrows. Some
probably arriving over night.The list is at the ebird link below.

Malcolm Gold and I thought we had a good audio of one in Miami County last winter but ultimately did not hear it vocalize again--so we didn't count it, but would love to have a chance to really hear (or better yet see one) one of these days!

Good Evening,
While camping with my daughter's girl scout troop on the Northside of La
Cygne Lake in Miami County, I heard a northern saw whet owl. It gave a few
agitated longer call sounds before going quiet. I was really surprised by
hearing this bird. I have heard them before when I lived in Michigan
growing up, but never thought I would find one here especially in October.
Other owls I heard were barred and screech.

Happy Birding,

Sharon and others,

The birds you observed were most likely Franklin’s Gulls as Rodney pointed
out. In October enormous numbers spend the night roosting at Clinton Lake,
then disperse during the daytime. The Franklin’s Gulls, and the Ring-billed
Gulls which predominate at the lake from November into winter, generally
move in a northeasterly direction towards the river during the morning,
moving in a southwesterly direction later in the day on their return. This
daily movement continues throughout the cooler months, so long as the
reservoir has enough open water for the gulls. On rare occasions cold
actually freezes the lake over and drives all gulls off of Clinton Lake
such that none can be found. Exactly where all the gulls hang out during
the day is unclear to me. Franklin’s Gulls can feed on aerial insects of
course, and may not head for any specific location I suppose. As for the
Ring-billed Gulls, I always assumed they were headed for the Kansas River
or one of the dumps in Kansas City. Does anyone know where they all go?
What direction do they move in Johnson County? How about elsewhere? For
example, what daily gull movements are observed at Manhattan, Topeka,
Kansas City, or Leavenworth and Wathena on the Missouri River? Do people
see daily movements up there in the far northeastern counties? How about to
the south, in the Hillsdale Lake and Marais des Cygnes areas?

On Friday evening my husband, another couple and I saw an amazing event in Lawrence.

It was around 6:15 p.m. and we were on rooftop of the Oread in Lawrence looking east as the sun set.

We were amazed to see literally thousands of birds flying south over the eastern part of the city. They were too far away to positively identify, but appeared to be white. They also appeared to be flying rather low—lower than the top of the Oread.

Anyone in Lawrence see this spectacle and able to identify these birds.

Subject: Yesterday October 20, Cowley Co.,
I was in the field doing some scouting October 18 for a KC group coming to
our pasture near Udall on Saturday. The area contained very few birds.
Yesterday (October 20) when I went back to the same area, the cold front
that settled into the area at around midnight had brought in probably 1000s
of birds. The roadsides were loaded with sparrows, particularly Savannah
Sparrow. I had 90 in just a 3 mile drive not to mention Harris's Sparrow,
Vesper Sparrow, Le Conte's Sparrow and Dark-eyed Juncos. I drove the
backroads back to Winfield and Savannah Sparrows were everywhere.

Even if the birds had been low in numbers, it was a great day to be out!!!!

I am sure Malcolm will put his findings on here later.

I was at the scenic overlook that is just W of Quivira NWR on NE 140th
St, from 11:30 AM till dark. Sandhill Cranes were flying overhead
southbound almost constantly. No huge groups, probably no group
larger then 200 or so, but the overall count must have been
significant. At 3:37 PM 3 Whooping Cranes glided directly overhead,
high, southbound. I doubt I saw these birds again. At 5:02 I spotted
2 Whooping Cranes on the ground far to the north of me, west of the
Big Salt Marsh. They were still there at 5:48. At 7 PM in the
twilight I spotted 4 Whooping Cranes on a small island in the Big Salt
Marsh, far to the N of me and a little to the E as well. They were
grouped into 2 pairs and may well have included the two I saw around
5PM.

I'll post some pics and videos later tonight

I always enjoy getting news about whooping cranes stopping in central Kansas. But there is also some sad news. Due to budget cuts, and after 51 years of valuable success, the whooping crane breeding program at Patuxent, Maryland, is ending. They will instead be bred elsewhere.

Thursday, Oct 18th I did a survey of Neosho Wildlife Area in Neosho Co. For

was started(3 years ago) that all the pools are back in full use. Near as I
can tell from my digital records(back to 2011) the numbers of waterbird the
area is holding is not matched for this date window in October. There were
15,000+ water birds on the refuge pool. This is probably 3x the max number
I have ever recorded in October on this property. There were all-time area
high counts(my personal counts + Ebird) of Gadwall with 5,000 present(2.5
times the previous all-time high count) and American Coots with 5,100(5
times the previous high count). All time high Pied-billed Grebe count was
set recently also.

It would be speculative, but it appears that the renovation has
dramatically improved the habitat and food sources. Anecdotally from a
visual sense and and by numbers. Will be interesting to see if the overall
number follow this trend through the winter.

Other notables: 3 Spotted Sandpipers (my first October observation in
Neosho Co), Neotropic Cormorant(been present for several months now),
Black-throated Green Warbler

Subject: RFI: Red Crossbill Info.
Hello all,

I am working on a paper summarizing Red Crossbill call types in Kansas and
Missouri during the most recent invasions (2012-2013 and 2017-2018)
alongside two co-authors. Each call type has unique bill morphology
allowing it to specialize primarily upon a single species of conifer within
its respective range. Exactly what these types eat outside their normal
range, during invasions for example, is not well known. For this reason, I
am requesting that any of you that observed Red Crossbills of known call
type during either of the recent invasions help me out. For any bird that
was recorded and proven to be one type or another, please email me and tell
me what they were eating. The more detailed you can be in your response,
the better. For example, it is more helpful to say "Scotch Pine" instead of
"pine", or "black oil sunflower seed" instead of "bird seed". If you cannot
answer immediately, but will revisit the location of a crossbill sighting
which was recorded to type, and can identify the trees upon which the birds
were feeding, please email me later. If you don't feel comfortable with
tree identification, sending me good pictures of the cones and needles of
the tree upon which the birds were feeding will suffice. Even if the
crossbills were identified to type, but not recorded, I would still like to
hear from you. With practice certain types can be identified by ear. Thank
you all for any help that you can provide!

I haven't really been looking at the birds today except took scope to lake
and I found zero waterfowl this morning.

But the yard has yellow rumped warblers. I saw one light on the glass dish
I have out filled with homemade suet crumbles. Still waiting for the
bluebirds to discover that.

Saw a sapsucker in the front yard.

My favorite bird interaction was watching two bluebirds on a nest box.
They were challenged by a downy woodpecker. The woodpecker landed on the
house and the bluebirds flew off. Then the bluebirds dived at the downy
and he went in the box for protection. I think I love watching the birds
in the fall just as much as the spring.

I also had a white breasted nuthatch looking at a nest box.

The grackles arrived yesterday afternoon along with many chipping sparrows.

Life is still good. ;)

I glanced out the window and saw another uncommon warbler. Went outside
and sat for ten minutes. It was another black throated green warbler.
Great views in full sun. Their colors really pop. Also a few yellow-rumped
warblers and got a glimpse of a blue-headed vireo.

Red bellied woodpecker came to the suet log feeder. Normally I don't feed
suet this time of year but glad I am. As he was feeding a yellow rumped
warbler waited its turn to feed. They just flutter in front of the suet
and take a peck.

The red-bellied flew to a flicker house and examined the inside without
entering.

A number of blue birds showed up and are examining various nest boxes. Oh
a dastardly house sparrow just chased one away. I've got the repeating
sparrow trap set.

It's one of those perfect Kansas days with sunshine and little wind.

Subject: 30 + Black Vultures, north of Riverton, KS, Cherokee Co. 10-16-18

This afternoon as I was headed to the Greenbush Education Center to set up
for an ECO-Meet, I had to pull over, turn around and double-check that I
had seen what I thought I had just seen on the side of the road. At about
1:10pm, I drove past a group of at least 30 Black Vultures on the ground
near a deer carcass on the east side of HWY 69/400, just north of Riverton,
Kansas in Cherokee County.
From a distance, I had thought it was a flock of turkeys, but realized as I
got closer that those were not turkeys. I got some poor photos through the
windshield, and a quick video. Only about 5 of the birds were at the
carcass when I drove by, the rest were further back toward a fence line. I
counted to 30 before birds started flying, so I may have missed a few that
took off.

My parents and I stopped by again about 4:40pm this afternoon and there
were two Black Vultures on a tree in the same area that flew off before we
left. For those familiar with the area, it was in a spot about halfway
between the railroad tracks (north of Riverton) and the drive that has an
old firetruck parked at it, a few miles before Crestline.

This is the largest group of Black Vultures I've seen in the state so far.
I've seen BV's in this area before, and wouldn't be surprised if they nest
nearby along the Spring River.

I posted some poor photos to the eBird checklist below.

Good morning KSBIRDers!

The monthly Milford Lake bird walk will be Saturday, October 20th at 8 a.m.
Participants will meet at the parking lot on the south end of Milford Lake
Dam, just across the highway from the Corps of Engineers Office, 5203
North K-57 Junction City, Kansas. This months walk will focus on fall
migrants, especially the many sparrow species now moving into and through
the state. The walks usually last about two to three hours and involve
moderate walking. If you have binoculars or a bird book please bring them.
The October walk is scheduled for November 17, 2018 and that will be the
last walk until March 2019. If you have any questions, drop me a note.

were nearly all working into the wind headed north. I'm not sure how much
they were advancing north. The Eastern areas had larger group and of
course there were larger groups near lakes. I made a point to record an
incidental E-bird report of them in each of the counties (Johnson,
Franklin, Anderson, Allen, Woodson, Greenwood, Butler, and Harvey counties)

So many factors could contribute to this event such as unusual weather events delaying nesting in the Prairie Provinces of Canada. Or exceptional late warm weather in places like Alberta and Saskatchewan, slowing fall migration that did not occur farther east.

As of yesterday we shifted to a 3 to 1, water to sugar solution. I noticed that a person over in Missouri was doing the same. He stated that the 3:1 did not freeze as easy. Our feeders had a little slush ice this morning.

I just had a hummingbird at my feeder this morning. It may have been a

Hi Folks,

I just looked out the window and surprise. No, no hummingbirds. It’s dark and past 10 pm, plus I haven’t seen a hummer for a few days. But, it’s probably a good thing I haven’t seen any hummingbird, because It’s snowing. It’s not sticking on the ground, probably won’t, the ground is still to warm, but, my car is covered. I’m going to have to clean it off in the morning, and don’t know were my window scrapper is. Is Christmas that close?

I will probably have a hummer at my feeders in the morning. I just had a thought, my feeders will be covered with snow in the morning. Don’t see that to often.

Happy Birding,

Subject: KBRC, County Checklists and other thoughts on bird records
A chilly and snowy (in some locations) Sunday afternoon!

Recent emails over the last few weeks and conversations at KOS last
weekend prompt me to discuss two topics: rare bird reports (KBRC) and
county checklist updates. While there is a certain amount of cross-over
between the two, they are also distinctly different.

The Kansas Bird Records Committee (KBRC) in its current form was
formalized in the late 1980s and adopted by the Kansas Ornithological
Society in 1990. The KBRC acts in a scientific format to evaluate birds that
are considered rare in time or location or that would be new to the state
check-list. Records committees are rarely popular (and they exist in most
states) because they follow some fairly strict principles of evaluation of the
records submitted. Every few years the KBRC updates its "Review List"
which is a list of bird species that they would like to have reports filed on if
you see them. Some species are not rare in some parts of the state, thereby
not needing a report, but if seen elsewhere in the state, they should be
reported. Species are noted along with a link showing where the birds dont
need to be reported from. This review list is online and can be viewed at:
http://www.ksbirds.org/KBRC/kbrcrvulist.html A listing of all records reviewed
as well as links to the online report form, list of current KBRC members and
the KBRC procedural rules can be viewed at
http://www.ksbirds.org/kos/kos_kbrc.htm

In recent years the question has been asked, more than once, why we need
a records committee when we have eBird. In short, eBird doesnt want to be
THE authority on birds in each state. They are a sightings recording and
database entity. On rarer sightings they will often reserve "judgement" until a
record has been acted on by the state records committee. KOS and their
Records Committee are still considered the authority on birds seen in
Kansas.

County checklists are a far less formal endeavor to simply better document
the occurrence of bird species across Kansas. Several ornithologists over
the years have kept track of the species seen county by county. Max
Thompson and Chuck Ely pulled a lot of these records together in the 1980s
when they worked on their two volume books Birds in Kansas. In the late
1990s I decided to take this a step further and created individual county
checklists for all 105 counties. I utilized the database that Thompson and Ely
pulled together and supplemented it with records from various birders from
across the state that I knew had kept good county records. The first set of
check-lists went public in the fall of 2001 which opened up the floodgates for
all birders to start submitting new county records. In the 17 years since the
first county check-lists were released, we have added over 5,800 new county
records to those checklists.

Obviously, any records filed with th KBRC that are accepted will be added to
the county checklists if they are accepted (although not all accepted KBRC
records are new county records.) A lot of the new county records are fairly
common species that do not need to be documented with a KBRC report.
For those species, you just send me an email with the species, the date of
the sighting and the basic location of the sighting. Max Thompson, Gene
Young and I share these sightings and sometimes we may ask for more
information, especially on trickier identifications (i.e. Long-billed vs
Short-billed Dowitchers). I routinely scan the records posted to the KSBIRD-L
discussion list for new county records. Facebook presents a special
challenge in the way that each Facebook subscriber is presented
information. Essentially, if you think its a new county record, dont depend on
Facebook to get me the information, email it to me! Likewise, eBird reports
are also not dependable as again, new county records may not qualify as a
rarity so they may not show up on the daily eBird Kansas rarity report. Email
it to me. Dan Larson has been great at sorting through the eBird county lists
looking for new county records. For the past several years he has sent me a
list, at the end of the year, of what appears to be new county records.
Unfortunately, eBird reviewers occasionally accept reports that Max, Gene
and I dont because of lack of information (i.e. Long-billed vs Short-billed
Dowitchers). If I know the individual who posted the record to eBird I can
contact them for more details, otherwise, we simply reject it and move on
down the road. If you want to make sure a potential new county record
makes it on to the lists, send me an email.

Again, some birders ask why I even maintain the county checklists when
there is eBird. A fair question! Remember that the county checklists include
records that go back to thye 1800's. Many of these records do not have the
sort of data that eBird prefers to have. They are county based, the date may
not be accurate, they are NOT connected to a hotspot. Take the Riley
County check-list. It currently has 360 species. The eBird Riley County list
has 324 species. Some birders choose not to use eBird, other records likely
will not be in eBird. eBird is not an all inclusive listing of birds, especially
historical records that may be over 50 years old! Over the past couple of
years we looked at some way to get those historical records included, but we
often just dont have the data, even on study skins contained in museums.

All of those county records, and the maps that I maintain on the ksbirds.org
website, are a great resource. But I occasionally have someone send me a
record because a species didnt show up on the county dot maps in Birds of
Kansas only to be disappointed when I tell them that it isnt a new county
record. Birds of Kansas is an excellent source of information, but I essentially
locked the maps on December 31, 2010 as we needed to have a cut off date
so the manuscript could go to the printers. Since the Birds of Kansas maps
were "locked" we have added almost 2,350 new county records. The most up
to date maps for determining new county records are at
http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/maps/County_records.htm

People periodically ask if Birds of Kansas will ever be updated or released as
an eBook. That is up to the University Press of Kansas, not the authors.
There are still copies of the book in the warehouse and until those are gone
Im pretty sure there will be nothing new. BUT if there is ever a decision to
update it, updated maps are ready every six months!

Thats a whole lot of words to basically say: if you see a bird thats on the
KBRC review list that is in the part of the state that it needs to be reported,
please report it (ask me if you have questions on that process). If a species
isnt on the review list, but appears to be a new county record, please email
me the information just to make sure I see it!

And of course, if you have any questions on this long meandering email,
dont hesitate to ask! No, it isnt a perfect system - no system is. Some
birders dont use eBird. Some birders have issues with records committees
and wont submit records. And some perfectly good records will never see
the light of day. Its a free world, your mileage may vary!

Hello All,

I am putting together a Kansas Ornithological Society (KOS) calendar for
2019. I am looking for content to include in it. If you are a KOS member
and have a photo of a bird from Kansas that you are willing to donate for
this use please send it my way. Photo credit will be attributed to you in
addition to the species name.

http://ksbirds.org/kos/kos_member.html

For each month I am looking for a high resolution photo that will fit well
on a 8.5 x 11 sheet (landscape) as well as a bit of information for each
species pictured, a bit of helpful Kansas birding information for each
month, and any appropriate events to the calendar.

I realize this is a short deadline, but please send any or all you have to
contribute as soon as possible as I am hoping to have the calendar to the
printer for proof by the end of this week.

I've posted a picture of a Merlin that I spotted on October 9 on my website. <flickr.com/photos/lbjbirds> Better light and less rainfall would have helped the photo. Best bird species of the fall for me has been three Blackpole Warblers in the River Pond State Park (Riley County) on October 4. Unfortunately their constant activity and shrubbery foliage prevented any photographic capture. Their fall migration pattern typically takes most of them to points east of here. Great birding!!

Subject: Burrough's Hillsdale Lake Field-Trip Report
Hi All,


Before I give the field-report, remember there are four upcoming Burrough's
Audubon Field trips that are open to everyone in the next three weeks.
Details are on the Burrough's Field-Trip website.


http://burroughs.org/its-free/field-trips-programs/


October 17th – Jerry Smith Park fall Bird Census

October 20th and 21st – Hitchcock Nature Center, Iowa

October 27th – Clinton Lake Outlet Park

November 3rd – Smithville Lake joint with Midland Empire Audubon Society


On to the bird report, thanks to Mark Land for leading the Burrough's
Audubon Field trip to Miami County/Hillsdale yesterday. Sixteen people
started the morning at Hillsdale State Park in overcast conditions and lake
fog. Scoping was tough but we had nice views of the Franklin's Gull
migratory spectacle. I lost sight of a Juvenile Laughing Gull far enough
out on the water that a scope was necessary to ID it and it likely flew
over the dam with other gulls as we were unable to relocate it. A Merlin
came through chasing one of the many swallows and as we worked our way west
in the Park a flyby Common Loon seemed a bit out of the ordinary as we were
unable to find one scoping. A covey of Northern Bobwhite Quail nicely sat
in the field for all to see.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49162852
<https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fview%2Fchecklist%2FS49162852%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR05G4awXWSuRYPwYYUoDd3DsMd4N0Y-jKwovFhA5vc2gDut59w-i7CCOpA&h=AT16eXOJtC1Q0cHPB3MXfS3AiBqPK99XtscpxKumOCLaBSgHImZvd8F8KihDatGp2xUx3RmhN_pijUQlMKjtz17vVcZz619WOqSjv1Q8OQHMA_-nKCkylNz7fCArtdL5eoLSZGjxQxhv-TaPrqu_FCjjv_r-1rawAzWuHzY>


From the state park we headed to Brown Wetlands. We had a few birds, but
not many of any species and few that gave the group more than a fleeting
look. Highlights included a Cooper's Hawk on the way, a Sharp-shinned Hawk
that perched in the middle island of the wetlands, a Red-breasted Nuthatch
that didn't respond to pishing and seemed on a mission to move south as
quickly as possible, and enough Variegated Meadowhawks (Dragonflies) to
perhaps John Mallery and I got a few others interested in them too.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49162915
<https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fview%2Fchecklist%2FS49162915%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1Qx_me9MC6xJ2jODCHbnxYgA3gIFsPgQ-gG6lzDKezuLqW51FAnjfZ2Pk&h=AT1ovr2fG1FIz6aGgHTxXq2rm5b3fDGZjhiUpvhjBG5kqlM1HwngPcAYfJNWnXHxvQdm-Sdx1Z6PlBHHrvt96rjeY9ygufX6ajfjlFs4OVyUbAeaP4rajFc1FMxMfWMId5YJR5uzpzNy_0KPah1qBMv927okWd2ajcRy_9s>


It was wonderful to meet a few people and to get out with like minded
individuals. If you didn't get the eBird checklists from yesterday please
send me a message and I'll share it. If you took a photo of either
dragonfly species please send me a full-sized resolution photo at

Subject: Manhattan Sedge Wrens
I would agree with Aaron that Northeast Community Park is a good spot to see a Sedge Wren, but of interest to me is that there was a large number of them in the wet grass near the northwest corner of K-State's North Farm last Saturday. It was wet after the rains and I walked my dog over on the North Farm after watching the unfortunate end of K-State's road football game. I suspect it was around 6 p.m. I flushed a small bird and then another and my dog started scenting them. I was amazed that he could scent them from 20 feet away. To my surprise, he eventually caught one and it was a Sedge Wren. I suppose I flushed 8-10 out of the grassy area alongside College Avenue. I regret that the one my dog caught did not survive. The area around the small stream that runs out of the northwest corner of the Bill Snyder Football Stadium parking lot is a good and under-birded spot in Manhattan. In the past I have found Soras along the stream, along with various sparrows. - Gary Haden, Manhattan

Subject: Pott County feeding flock
While walking my dog at the Tall Timbers Campground on the south side of the Tuttle Puddle area below the dam (Pottawattamie County) I encountered what might be the most interesting fall feeding flock I have ever seen. Along with Robins and Starlings feeding on poison ivy berries, were numerous Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Orange-crowned Warblers. Also present were a female Cardinal, a WB Nuthatch, a Tufted Titmouse, and a couple BC Chickadees. The best birds were a Nashville Warbler, a Mourning Warbler and a Philadelphia Vireo. A Pileated Woodpecker was calling as I looked at the other birds, but it was not in the flock. There were probably more species, but it was difficult sifting through all of the Orange-Crowned Warblers and the kinglets in the fog and drizzle. Cormorants Sp. were present on the water, and there was a streaked sparrow in the feeding flock that I couldn't see well enough to identify. - Gary Haden, Manhattan

Subject: Sandhill Cranes over Hays Water Tower
Hi All,
This morning I was watching a flock of 20 sandhill cranes flying from northeast to southwest directly above the big Hays Water Tower (presumably heading for the Texas Panhandle), I have often wondered if they use it as a landmark, especially with a painting on its side of a pterodactyl (which sort of looks like a crane). Would they have noticed that the water tower had been painted over this summer (now just plain white, no pterodactyl or Sternberg Museum advertisement). It has been proposed that an historical mural be painted on it (if $260,000 can be raised to pay for it). Pretty expensive for a highway billboard. Anyway, I guess the sandhills would just shrug it off (as long as the tower is still there as a landmark).

October is often your best chance for one of the rare western hummers such as Anna's or Costa's. If you already have them for your yard list, take the feeders down. If not leave them up and hit the books before one shows.

We still had Ruby-throated today. Pretty sure I had a Black-chinned a few days back, but it was a one show only.

Subject: Juvenile Coopers stumped by Jay
At lunch today, just SE of Derby, I watched a small hawk ( at first thought he was dove—I don’t get hawks perching at feeders) swoop onto deck, into tree. Then, saw him dive into Magnolia shrub. Out again. Soon after he went back into tree, a Bluejay hopped out and proceeded to peck at seeds on flat feeder on ground.
Again the hawk swooped down, Jay dived into shrub. Coopers struggles out of shrub up to tree branches (my view obstructed by big roof overhang). Occasionally hawk was in plain sight...not too much bigger than Jay, perfect Coopers’ markings. This continued—5-6 times.
Then, hawk emerges from shrub and another Jay came in to peck at that feeder. Two Jays present. A flurry of three jays for a moment, then one Jay at feeder. Didn’t see Hawk again. At no time did Jay seem panicked. Hawk was never at big speeds—seemed too close for speed or surprise. Finally, I concluded that Jays are not its normal prey—too big for him and he just didn’t know it?
I’ve had Coopers nesting at my pond for several years...this bird was small but I do see fledglings fairly close to our house and scattering birds at feeders. And I could see that rounded tail when perched and taking off. I suspect he was this year’s grown up nestling because I never see the parents any where around our house.
Really fun watching this—Jays were not worried—as if they were playing...teasing.
A novice birder, I could be totally wrong about what these birds were doing. But it was a treat.

I hope everyone enjoyed the Miami County/Hillsdale Reservoir shorebird
habitat at Brown Wetlands and Antioch Marsh the past couple of months, as
it appears we will have to wait at least until next year to have it return.

Water is only a few feet off the burm at Brown Wetlands and the lake has
expanded through all the lowland trees in the area. A few wrens and
sparrows were found around the northerly ponds. I had a couple of late
Yellow Warblers and was happy to meet George and Matthew, who had a Fox
Sparrow and Blue-headed Vireo at Brown.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49115765

Water levels completely covered the trail at Antioch South to the point and
the island is completely submerged. (Photo is of this area)

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49116787

On a positive note, the rain added a significant amount of water to the
Model Airport field below Clinton Reservoir. The water is over a foot deep
in the middle of the field. Greg Coniglio, Kathy Carroll, and I found
LeConte's and Nelson's Sparrows but only one rail yesterday around noon. A
Common Tern at the Clinton Marina was a nice spot by Kathy Carroll.

Good Birding,

As Chris said, there was a nice movement last night. The radar showed
considerable movement in portions of the midwest and super heavy flight
over the western gulf coast. I decided to bird Burcham Park this morning
and it was quite birdy before the clouds rolled in and the wind picked up.
Had it remained calm and sunny, as it was when I first arrived, I suspect
my migrant tallies (see below) would have been considerably higher. Nothing
super outstanding was seen, but it was an enjoyable morning nonetheless.
The Red-eyed Vireo, Northern Parula, and Wilson’s Warbler all fit into the
kinda late category. I observed the follow migrants in addition to other
species not listed ...

Northern Flicker - 10

Eastern Phoebe - 3

Blue-headed Vireo - 6

Red-eyed Vireo - 1

Red-breasted Nuthatch - 1

Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 15

Golden-crowned Kinglet - 1

Winter Wren - 1

House Wren - 1

Brown Thrasher - 2

Gray Catbird - 1

Orange-crowned Warbler - 10

Nashville Warbler - 15

Myrtle Warbler - 80

Black-throated Green Warbler - 3

Northern Parula - 1

Common Yellowthroat - 3

Wilson’s Warbler - 1

Lincoln’s Sparrow - 6

Swamp Sparrow - 1

Song Sparrow - 3

White-throated Sparrow - 15

Dark-eyed Junco - 6

Indigo Bunting - 2

Yesterday there was still a Summer Tanager and Rose-breasted Grosebak in
the yard. I suspect the tanager had departed by now, but who knows.

Subject: Hummer in Riverside, Wichita
Hi Folks,

Well, this morning around 10 am, I saw the fat Calliope I reported yesterday in my backyard, feeding at one of my feeders. But, that was the last time. I watched all day, to see if it was still around, to no avail. It appears to me the Calliope left the area, in the late morning after it used the feeder a few hours. It followed behavior I have learned to trust, watching hummingbirds closely for 13 years in Oak Park, here in Wichita. I have learned that hummingbirds, particularly the fat ones, have gotten fat, to make a long flight, perhaps hours, generally timing it on days when it has tail winds or not wind, rarely into headwinds. Since they fly cross country in daylight at low altitude, unlike most migrating birds, they wake up early in the morning, spend a few hours filling up what energy they used over night, and around 10 or 11 am, they make one last quick, top off at the feeder and take off slowly climbing above the trees and disappear flying South. I have watched this happen a number of times. Maybe its a training flight, getting ready for the long flight across the Gulf of Mexico, we know some hummingbirds make. I also have learned if a hummingbird is still around the feeders at 1pm, they will be there at least one more day. Another point. Some of these birds are immatures, like this Calliope we are talking about. How does it know how to do this. Must be in its DNA, or maybe it had a nice talk with mom, before it resently left the nest.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

Subject: KOS Fall Meeting Bird List
As has been previously noted, the fall meeting of the Kansas Ornithological
Society was this weekend in Lawrence. Over 90 attendees were registered
(recalling that Max said 96). Great papers were presented Saturday, a nice
banquet and speaker Saturday evening followed by somewhat soggy field
trips this morning. Sedge Wrens and hundreds of thousands of Franklin's
Gulls may have been the highlights. Personally I enjoyed having 5 Sedge
Wrens sitting within ten feet of me, perched up on grass stems. Very
enjoyable!

Compilation of the weekend sightings was held at noon today at the Baker
Wetlands Discovery Center. Sightings were of those registered for the
meetings from noon Friday through noon Sunday. Sightings were primarily
from Douglas county but also accepted from Johnson, Franklin, Osage,
Shawnee, Jefferson and Leavenworth. A total of 129 species were seen.
Over the past ten years of fall meetings we've averaged 118 species with a
high of 146 in Great Bend (2011) and a low of 94 at Emporia (2015). Thanks
to Kylee Sharp, Debby McKee and Malcolm Gold for leading the field trips
today!

Subject: KCPL Wetlands
Good Afternoon,
I ventured out to KCPL Wetlands this afternoon. The water levels are back
in all ponds and then some around the wetlands. This was a blessing in
disguise. I had a great time walking around the area exploring and almost
fell on my butt when I spooked up a Virginia Rail, wasn't expecting that. I
also had a couple of Sora and to me my most amazing finds which were 2
Lecontes and 1 Nelson's sparrow among a multitude of other sparrows .
Area is not mowed and full of water, bring your boots and sense of
adventure.

Happy Birding,

Subject: Quivira report 7;October 2018
Despite wet weather, birding at Quivira this afternoon (7 October) was excellent. Conditions very "Birdy" with passerine migrants present in large quantities. Bad news: forecasts of continued rain will undoubtedly make road conditions worse. A few bad spots (one in particular on NE 170th east of Wildlife Drive), might not be passable for low clearance passenger cars.
Some First-of-season species include Dark-eyed Junco plus Song, Swamp, and White-throated Sparrows. NE 170th west of Wildlife Drive exit had both Sedge Wren and Le Conte's Sparrow.

Subject: Kanopolis white hawk
To celebrate our wedding anniversary, Becky and I went to Kanopolis Lake. The Horse Thief Canyon area is one of the premier hiking areas in the state. The sumac, Virginia Creeper, and sandstone formations were showing off their vibrant fall colors after the rain. Reds, orange, various yellows, and greens highlighted the mist drifting in and out of the Kanopolis coves. As we reached a overlook, a white hawk launched out of some trees. I think it was a leucistic (I'm not sure of my spelling) Red-Tail, but I'm not 100% sure of the species.
I've only seen several leucistic birds in my life, two were this year. The other was a Burrowing Owl in Texas.
What a beautiful day to see a transcendent natural area of Kansas!!

Estimates for the Atlantic Coast, ranging from New Jersey south to the Gulf
Coast of Florida, are between just 355-815 breeding pairs. Estimates from
a Texas research project indicated a population of around 1,300 individuals
for the upper Texas Coast – a noted stronghold for the bird prior to
Hurricane Harvey in 2017. No true population estimates exist for interior
states such as Colorado, Kansas or Oklahoma, but there are small
populations in Colorado and Kansas where the bird breeds in the spring and
summer. With a lack of consistent monitoring and survey results for the
Caribbean and Central America, there is no evidence to suggest that the
eastern black rail is present in large numbers in this region, although it
is likely the birds occur there.

following activities during the identified critical time periods: approved
fire management, haying, mowing, and other mechanical treatments, intensive
grazing (only on public lands), and other forms of direct and incidental
take outlined in the Federal Register notice. In addition, fire management
activities not using best management practices to minimize impacts to the

Checked at first light, but could not relocate the Whooping Crane as reported and photographed yesterday afternoon (Kansas Birds Facebook, 5 October). Not present on west Big Salt Marsh or elsewhere. Birding on Wildlife Drive, however, is about as good as it gets, with huge numbers of geese, ducks, shorebirds, and even lingering egrets and ibis. FOS Snow and Cackling Geese.

Corner of Muir Rd and Crawford St SEeast for the locals.
The front went thru last night and so they may have moved on ...
Still seeing scissortails and flickers in great #'s and monarch butterflies are also coming
thru, or were last night.
Swainson's are the hawks that travel together and are often seen sitting on the ground trying to catch some bugs. Very interesting and a good way for kids of all ages to see them is in the fall as they come thru...

Subject: Burcham Park — 10/5
This afternoon I walked around Burcham Park. As others reported, there are
quite a few birds around after this latest front. I was fortunate to be
there before the wind picked up, and while it was still cloudy. Several
portions of the park were quite active, and I surely missed some things.
The migrants that I did see included the following ...

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker - 3

Northern Flicker - 20 (one was intergrade)

Eastern Wood-Pewee - 1

Eastern Phoebe - 4

Philadelphia Vireo - 1

House Wren ~ 3

Sedge Wren - 1

Ruby-crowned Kinglet ~ 5

Gray Catbird - 1

Brown Thrasher ~ 2

Cedar Waxwing ~ 20

Indigo Bunting - 2

Lincoln’s Sparrow ~ 3

Swamp Sparrow - 1

White-throated Sparrow ~ 3

Common Yellowthroat ~ 3

Summer Tanager - 1

Nashville Warbler - 5 to 10

Myrtle Warbler ~ 25

Orange-crowned Warbler - 3

Northern Parula - 1

Blackburnian Warbler - 1

The Blackburnian Warbler was clearly the highlight of the visit. They are
hard to find anytime but especially during fall, and looking back, it seems
like I usually miss this species during the fall. It’s also getting kinda
late for this species. Also in the kinda late category was a Wilson’s
Warbler in the yard a few days ago (10/2). In town today I had my first
Dark-eyed Junco of the season.

Subject: Manhattan migrants
After more than an hour stepping down mole runs in my yard and garden this morning, I sat in the backyard to check out a feeding flock moving through the neighborhood.

Along with many, many Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Orange-crowned Warblers, there were also Yellow, Nashville, Wilson's, And Black-throated Green Warblers. Those last two are new for the year for me.

Also saw a lingering Ruby-throated Hummingbird, a White-throated Sparrow, and a White-breasted Nuthatch with a fuzzy gray, rather than black, crown. Apparently he has some maturing to do. Overhead we're myriads of Franklin's Gulls, which are omnipresent over Manhattan this time of year.

Enjoy KOS for those who are going. It's a great time to be out and about.

Very birdy below the dam at Shawnee Mission Park in Johnson County. I met up with Mark Land for part of the morning before he took off for KOS. The north field and the adjacent tree line were full of birds; mainly sparrows, warblers and Indigo Buntings. Overhead Blue Jays, Flickers and gulls kept us company as well. Mark was able to escape before the thunderstorm arrived. I was not so lucky! :^ (

Another good free parking option is the lot behind the Spencer Museum of
Art, off of Mississippi St. Lot 91 on the KU parking map:

.
You can then take the stairs or elevator up through the Union to Jayhawk

only has about 25 spots and in my experience stays full often even in the
evenings and on weekends. I work right next door; wave to Moses at Smith

Hi Folks,

Art Weigand mentioned, in a previous post, that I might have found a Mourning warbler in Oak Park, today, but I did chase a warbler that sure was acting like one, but I didn’t get a good enough look at it, to ID it. I did see a lot of warblers, but not many species. I did see; Nashville, Orange-crowned, Yellow-rumped, Wilson’s (many), Yellow and the best for last, Chestnut-sided (female). Others: Blue-headed vireo (many), Ruby-crowned Kinglet (more than many), Catbird (many) and Brown-thrasher (many). No humming birds. Almost all of the birds I saw were on the Westside of Oak Park and I didn’t see any of them until after 11:30. There were still feeding until late in the afternoon. Which probably means tomorrow everything will be different.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

David Mootz and I saw a YELLOW RAIL in Johnson County late this morning. David was mowing an area along the Kill Creek Park trail owned and maintained by JOCO Parks and Rec. 8 of us came back about an hour later and we couldn't relocate the bird. I was able to get some photos of the Yellow Rail as it was flying away from us. Crummy photos but good enough to see those bright white secondaries! A lifer for both of us.

Last night I woke up at 1:30am and could hear wave after wave of geese
flying over. I assume they are white-fronted.

This morning I turned on the spray sprinkler and saw nothing.

This afternoon I turned on the sprinkler sprayer and had lots of
yellow-rumps. They were all over. A red-breasted nuthatch showed up and
was crawling around on the ground and in the bushes. Very unnuthatch
like. He was silent too. Good to see one. Also had a hmmingbird at a
feeder.

Tonight, Janeen Walters stopped by, I turned on the sprinkler sprayer and
had lots of warblers, mostly nashville, tennessee, and orange crowned. But
one bird lit in the shallow pond area and was a pumping its tail. It was a
palm warbler. I'm sure thats a new yard bird. Sure are lots of birds in
the yard.

The flickers are coming to roost in their boxes.

Loving the cool weather and the influx of birds.

Since I was seeing goodies in the yard I figured, why not? So I got to the park at about 12:30 and ran into Bill Langley. He had been seeing lots of activity including 3 Wilson’s warblers. I caught up with 2. I also had 2 Black-throated Greens and a Common Yellowthroat. I may have had a Mourning warbler but I lost it. Paul may have chased it down. If so I’m sure he’ll report it later. There were many Nashvilles, Orange-crowns and Yellow-rumps. Also had 2 Yellow warblers. Best bird of the day was a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. There were several Blue-headed vireos and many Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Also saw one Red-breasted Nuthatch and one Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
Around 4PM I looked up and saw 2 different kettles of hawks each with at least 50 birds way too high to ID.
As I getting ready to leave I noticed a lot of small birds moving in the big Oaks south of 11th street. So I gave chase. Holy cow. Dozens of warblers and kinglets kept moving from one Oak to the next.
Definitely an excellent fallout day. With the winds coming back around from the south tomorrow I suspect many migrants will still be around.

Subject: Broad-winged Hawks Hays
I saw at least 4 Broad-winged Hawks at the Sternberg Nature Trail today. I
watched two leave the area. One circled and soared toward the SE, the other
toward the NW. They left about five minutes apart after I had left the area
and was at my car. I waited an additional 15-20 minutes and saw no more
birds leave the area.

Others may have left when I accidentally flushed them.

Other birds present included a number of Orange-crowned Warblers, one
Nashville, and one White-throated Sparrow.

Over the course of the day, I observed many flocks of flickers in Salina KS and in Saline CO East. Most were yellow shafted, but a few were red.
Still a few scissortailed flycatchers around.
And a few 'new dark' hawks were spotted together last night in pairs, 6 total hawks that were very dark and not our 'usual' hawks.

Subject: Morton Ladderback
Finally! I saw a Ladderback Woodpecker in Kansas. Some birds just seem to elude me for long periods of time. I have in the past, walked dozens and dozens of miles trying to find this bird, in all the places it had been seen before, but no luck. I believe this is a very low density bird in Kansas. It's not as though I have not seen the bird before. It is easy to see in the Panhandle of Texas. But, there is something special about seeing a bird in Kansas that I have put this much effort into finding. Today was a good day! I saw the bird not far from the work station. I also flushed a Poorwill from about 3 feet from me in the same area. That's as close as I have ever been to one.
There were good numbers of warblers in Morton today, but nothing special and mostly butterbutts. I saw my FOS White-Throated Sparrow.
There were also high numbers of Swainson's Hawks migrating. I saw around a hundred sitting around in fields, and lots in the air too. Today was a good day to bird, but I only had a couple of hours as I started the day in Albuquerque, NM.
Lots and lots of Northern Flickers on the move too, mostly all Red-Shafted.
I hope everyone is seeing good fall migrants. Jim Nickel Peabody. KS

Subject: County Checklist update
Good afternoon KSBIRDers!

I wanted to let you all know that the biannual update of the county checklists
has been completed. These can be accessed from the County Checklist
homepage - http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/checklist_index.htm

All checklists and associated pages and tables are updated to reflect new
records through September 15, 2018, new records accpeted by the Kansas
Bird Records Committee as well as the most current round of check-list
updates by the American Ornithological Society. The county dot maps have
not been updated yet, but everything else has. I will start on the maps next
week. The most current version of all 105 checklists will have a September
30, 2018 date at the end.

The updated Kansas Check-list now has 481 species with the latest addition
being Bronzed Cowbird!

The additions to the county lists follow below. Species names followed with
an asterisk (*) are new confirmed breeding records for that species in that
county. While Dan Larson and I try to scan all the eBird reports for new
records, that is a daunting task. It is very helpful that if you feel you have a
new county record, please send it to me directly just to be sure.

As always, if you have a new county record, please send me the species, the
date, the county and approximate location within the county. It is helpful if you
send me the information, not JUST a link to an eBird checklist. If I have any
questions about your sighting, I will get back in touch with you.

Since I started this project in the fall of 2001, we have added nearly 5,700
new county records thanks to many of you sending in your updates. Thank
you!

In the following list, we start with the county name followed by the number of
species now on the county checklist and end with the new additions to that
county's checklist. This round of updates reflect nearly 200 new records in 67
counties!

I look forward to seeing many of you at the KOS meetings in Lawrence next
weekend!

Subject: Miami County Arrivals
As some of you know I have been trying to focus on Miami County this year.
It has been fun to explore different areas and make sure I get out at
different times of the year. After dreaming about a Sedge Wren report from
earlier this week (yes it actually happened in a Wizard of Oz kinda way) I
went searching today. Total I found 85 species total, below are a few
highlights....and yes there were plenty of Sedge Wrens!

A few lingering south-bound warblers were found along 231st St and the
Loggerhead Shrike remained in the same spot on Rockville Rd as much of the
year.
231st St - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48793406
Rockville Rd - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48793742

A small flock of passerines 1/2 mile east of Brown Wetlands included the
first-of-fall (FOS) Yellow-Rumped Warblers. a Blue-headed Vireo, a
Philadelphia Vireo, and a Chipping Sparrow while another mixed flock at the
top of the hill just east of the parking lot had Orange-crowned Warblers,
(FOS) Clay-colored Sparrow, and Red-breasted Nuthatches. I had 6 Sedge
Wrens walking through the chest-high smartweed north of the parking lot and
couldn't ID the single Ammodramus sparrow mixed in with other sparrows and
wrens. The lake level continues to fall and shorebird habitat remains good
if you walk through the trees to the lake, where another Sedge Wren and FOS
Palm Warbler welcomed me to the lake. Duck numbers are up and a Merlin got
the shorebirds up before it took off. Today was the third time I have heard
an Eastern Screech Owl (presumably the same one) calling from the woods
during the day without any sort of provocation.
Brown Wetlands - https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48796081

With boots it was easy to walk to the island at Antioch South. I am quite
large compared to many and only sank into the mud an inch. The center of
the island was covered with Sedge Wrens and I conservatively estimated 15
with a few sparrows mixed in. Shorebird habitat is changing rapidly out
there, with the previously exposed areas completely dry. A new mudflat has
appeared just east of the west parking lot and would be an easy spot to
scope from in the evening. (38.710517, -94.972099) Most of the shorebirds
were seen in that one spot, but a few were in the SW corner from the
island. A group of 5 Palm Warblers and a single Yellow-Rumped Warbler were
in the willows at the end of the east parking lot point.

The pond in the small grass pasture at the northwest corner of the Scott City cemetery is stiil holding water from the six inch rain they had on 19 JUNE 18.. All the other larger lakes from that rain are gone. Sara and I located a late Wilson's Phalarope with 8 Red-necked Phalarope yesterday, 27 SEPT 18.

At Scott Lake we found two FOS sparrow species; 1= Spotted Towhee and 6 = White-crowned Sparrows. All observations in Scott County.

Subject: raptor migration over Wichita 9-27-- Broad-winged hawk
Today in Wichita around 11:12 I lifted my binoculars to the skies and
almost immediately scanned on to an immature light-morph Red-tailed
hawk and an adult light-morph Broad-winged hawk. Both were clearly
southbound; the Broad-winged hawk in particular would have been
difficult to detect with the naked eye. It thermalled up quite high,
drifting quite far north in the south wind, and then went on glide to
the south. The primary feature for aging and identification was the
prominent dark trailing edge on the otherwise uniformly very
light-colored wing, combined with the general wing planform and the
complete absence of dihedral -- I wasn't actually able to see the

I estimate I was scanning over an area about 5 fields wide and 2
fields high, centered around a spot due south and about 35 degrees
above the horizon, w/ 10x42 vortec viper binocs./

I kept watching for a total of 20 minutes but saw no more hawks, and
only one Monarch, which was not obviously migrating.

Yesterday 9-26-18 near sunset I saw a few dozen Chimney Swifts fly
down the taller (and newer-appearing) of the two tall brick chimneys
at the Sunnyside apartments, formerly a school, near the intersections
of Sunnyside and Lorraine and Sunnyside and Chautauqua, just SW of the
intersection of Harry and Hillside. Since it is a private apartment
complex, it is not a great location for bird watching-- maybe the
nearby footbridge over Kellog would be a good vantage point.

Subject: Re: Quivira report 26 September 2018
I had an adult Peregrine Falcon down by the telescope spot on the Wildlife Drive at Quivira late Tuesday afternoon, 25 September. It was very close and even hovered about 10 feet above my car for a bit, but by the time I stretched and fumbled way back into the back seat for my camera, it had perched 100 yards away. I looked through a fair number of the shorebirds that were close enough to scope and saw about 10 of the more expected late-September species including that one Marbled Godwit.

My most notable sighting of the week was an apparent adult Northern Goshawk just south of Haven in SE Reno County on 23 September. I realize it is a bit earlier than goshawks are expected, but its size and flight pattern were goshawk all the way. I've been seeing lots of Cooper's and a few Sharp-shinneds too. I have NOT seen a big flock of Swainson's Hawks anywhere despite all my travels.

I wouldn't be surprised if the movement increases greatly as the sun

In hindsight, yesterday when I was attempting to look steadily at a

covering at least 2 fields of view horizontally-- something to keep in

Subject: Morris County Birds and Monarch Butterflies
My wife and I hosted some non-birding friends at our Morris County farm Sunday evening and my concentration was on cooking and socializing; however, we did encounter some good birds. Along with the usual regulars, we saw four Great Egrets around a farm pond 1 miles west and a half mile south of Latimer. We had a Pied-billed Grebe that never left our pond as we picnicked and three teal sp. landed on our pond just before dark. They disappeared into the tangle of smartweed that had grown up before rains came. A Scissor-tailed Flycatcher was still hanging around the pond, and two barred owls called while we walked our nature trail.

We were never out of sight of Monarchs as we walked our nature trail, as they were apparently resting amongst our mature trees while the wind blew from the south. I had my best year ever for Monarchs in our Manhattan yard. Previously, I had counted as high as seven Monarch caterpillars over the course of an entire summer. This year I had a couple early Monarch caterpillars and then constant caterpillars for a six-week stretch, with as many as 10 caterpillars at a time. I also found numerous Monarch caterpillars on the milkweeds in our filter strips and in other areas where we have milkweed plants at our farm in Morris County. Despite the early summer drought in Kansas, I believe this is the best year for Monarchs in recent years in Riley and western Morris County. (I would note we also had a large number of Monarchs in our woods along Clarks Creek last year.) - Gary Haden, Manhattan

Now consider this-- pooling counts #2 through 4 gives 274 butterflies
seen over 40 minutes-- which is 411 per hour-- now figure that a

entirely different butterflies-- suggesting at least 3288 passing per

Subject: big Monarch migration over Wichita today 9-25-18
I've been noticing some Monarch butterflies around Wichita the last
few days. This afternoon when the strong north winds picked up as the
cold front passed, I pointed my binoculars to the skies to look for
migrating birds. What I actually saw was a lot of Monarchs, moving
rapidly south. Most-- at least 75% or more- would not have been
detectable with the naked eye.

Count #1 -- protocol- -scan through 90 degrees azimuth (NW through NE)
with 10 x 42 Vortex Viper binoculars aimed about 30 degrees above the
horizon. Time of count-- 4:43 through 4:53 PM. Duration of count: 10
minutes. Number of butterflies counted -- 69.

Count #2-- protocol-- stare at one spot to the north with 10 x 42
Vortex Viper binoculars aimed about 30 degrees above horizon. Time of
count-- 4:55 - 5:10 PM. Duration of count: 15 minutes. Number of
butterflies counted-- 95.

Count #3-- protocol-- stare at one spot to the north with 10 x 42
Vortex Viper binoculars aimed about 30 degrees above horizon. Time of
count-- 5:12 - 5:27 PM. Duration of count: 15 minutes. Number of
butterflies counted-- 130. Also 2 Swainson's hawks and 1 Red-tailed
hawk passed though, southbound, in a group. Many swifts and some
nighthawks were present.

Count #4-- protocol-- stare at one spot to the north with 10 x 42
Vortex Viper binoculars aimed about 30 degrees above horizon. Time of
count-- 5:30 - 5:40 PM. Duration of count: 10 minutes. Number of
butterflies counted-- 49.

I can't say that all the butterflies counted were Monarchs, but every
one that was low enough to discern coloration and shape was entirely
consistent with a Monarch, so I suspect the vast majority were
Monarchs. All were moving southward rapidly-- there was no issue with
double-counting.

Some dragonflies were also moving south-- probably around 10 to 20
percent as numerous as the butterflies, based on what I could see-- of
course it is much harder to spot a high-flying dragonfly than a
high-flying Monarch.

After spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME on my video of the warblers that came to
the spray sprinkler, I'm glad to say "It is done".

It is 3 minutes long: See it here: https://youtu.be/ZFd7sEj_-vs

I show the sprinkler and explain its set up.

I slowed down the video of the warblers to half the original speed. Hope it
helps looking at them.

I added commentary as to what I think each of them are, but these warblers
are hard for me to identify.

I thought I'd add that the one grayish vireo like bird that came to the
sprinkler may very well have been a female black throated blue warbler.
When I was looking through my guides of warblers, the female image sure
looked like a match. Too bad I its an afterthought. Nothing else really
seems to come close.

I've been trying the sprinkler daily since but haven't seen much other than
cardinals and robins and chickadees.

Both the parulas and black throated green (not in the video) were new yard
birds.

Hummingbird numbers in Oak Park and in my backyard about 1/2 mile South are down to only a few. Oddly, the last hummingbird I ID’ed in Oak Park was a imm male Calliope, sitting up high on a bare twig, preening about 70 feet away. And the last hummingbird I ID’ed in my backyard was a very fat Black-chinned female, feeding at a sit down feeder. I was able to get good video of both of these birds. It’s been a interesting summer with the hummers in Oak Park, seeing the most amount of unusual hummingbird species, namely, Calliope, Broad-tailed, and Black-chinned at the feeders that I have ever seen each year.

Example abstract:

Interspecific competition with wildcats limits populations of jay-hawks in
northeast Kansas.

Willie T. Wildcat (*), Division of Biology, Kansas State University.

Ongoing declines in autumn populations of jay-hawks (Cyanorufa chalkii)
are a topic of conservation concern in Kansas. To assess the role of
interspecific competition with wildcats (Felis purpula) as a factor
contributing to observed population trends, I conducted three-hour
observation bouts of captive animals in large enclosed arenas. In
competition trials, jay-hawks demonstrated a strong aversion to
environments saturated with royal purple. Thus, interspecific competition
from wild felids may be a limiting factor that controls foraging and
reproductive success of jay-hawk populations in the state of Kansas.
Effective conservation strategies for jay-hawks should include keeping cats
indoors.

We got them at Point of Rocks ponds. We were driving by Point of Rocks when Andrew Miller thought he saw a Black-throated Sparrow.

Western Olathe (near the new Olathe West High School) was honored with a kettle of around 100 Broad-winged Hawks last evening (Friday) around 1800 CDT.  The low-altitude kettle drifted out of sight to the SSW. I figure they roosted in the vicinity last night.  I was awed to see such numbers of Broad-wingeds in the suburbs. There must have been an enormous volume moving through to have a good number in Olathe and spectacular numbers one county west this morning. My views were too backlit lsst night to determine morph, but with the sighting of dark morphs in Lawrence we can presume these are birds moving out of the northwestern portion of their breeding range.
I love Broad-wingeds!

The Broad-winged Hawks that Joe saw at Burcham Park were probably part of
the concentration that settled into the woods at Fitch Natural History
Reservation and surrounding woodlands last night. Yesterday afternoon Mark
Robbins called to inform me that he observed a kettle of ~55 individuals.
This morning Steven Seltman, Matt Longabaugh, and myself birded at the KU
properties (Rockefeller, Fitch, McColl) north of town. We flushed a few
Broad-winged Hawks early in the morning. Then at 8:30 am we arrived at the
interesection of 1600 Rd and 2000 Rd. Over the next hour-and-a-half, we
observed many kettles lifting off from the woods to our north where they
apparently spent the night. Our finally tally was 950 plus or minus a
few!!! This was an event like nothing else I have seen in a Kansas, and I
of course realize that these numbers would not be exceptional several
hundred miles further east. Nonetheless, it was kinda mind blowing. We saw
half to two-thirds of these birds well enough to determine which morph they
were, and only three of 500 to 700 were dark morphs. The dark morphs sure
are good looking birds.

The Broad-winged Hawks that Joe saw at Burcham Park were probably part of
the concentration that settled into the woods at Fitch Natural History
Reservation and surrounding woodlands last night. Yesterday afternoon Mark
Robbins called to inform me that he observed a kettle of ~55 individuals.
This morning Steven Seltman, Matt Longabaugh, and myself birded at the KU
properties (Rockefeller, Fitch, McColl) north of town. We flushed a few
Broad-winged Hawks early in the morning. Then at 8:30 am we arrived at the
interesection of 1600 Rd and 2000 Rd. Over the next hour-and-a-half, we
observed many kettles lifting off from the woods to our north where they
apparently spent the night. Our finally tally was 950 plus or minus a
few!!! This was an event like nothing else I have seen in a Kansas, and I
of course realize that these numbers would not be exceptional several
hundred miles further east. Nonetheless, it was kinda mind blowing. We saw
half to two-thirds of these birds well enough to determine which morph they
were, and only three of 500 to 700 were dark morphs. The dark morphs sure
are good looking birds.

Aside from what is written above, birding has been slow even with the front
taking place over the last two days. The numbers of expected migrant
species have been unimpressive. Lists from today and yesterday (Baker
Wetlands) have been entered into eBird by Matt. Diurnal migration of Blue
Jays, Northern Flickers, and Red-headed Woodpeckers was going strong this
morning.
