Subject: Nest Updates
I did a nest check in my Topeka yard today.

Yesterday before the tornado outbreak I was trying to capture video of the
chickadees fledging. I did see one stick his head out and almost fly. I
assumed they wouldn't fledge in the evening with the bad weather. But by
morning they were gone. So while I was seeking shelter they must have
fledged. I opened the box and it was empty. This was my first successful
chickadee nest. I believe one reason they nested here is I eradicated all
of the house sparrows in my neighborhood. This was the first spring I
didn't have to trap house sparrows in nest boxes. I caught them all in the
repeating elevator trap.

The house wren nest has 8 eggs. I think the volume of the eggs is more
than the wren that laid them. Pretty amazing.

I did not check the bluebirds or flickers as they are nearly ready to
fledge. I've been noticing flickers at two other nest boxes. One box has
an egg in it today. I expect the other box to also have a pair nest. I'd
put money on it that both lost their nests to starlings. This is the first
spring that I didn't trap any starling once the flickers were incubating.
Maybe all these years of trapping has reduced their numbers so the flickers
can nest in peace. I only trapped 41 starlings in my yard this year.
Previous years I trapped from 125 to 372.

Subject: Franklin County Shorebirds
Like many areas across the central and eastern part of the state, the
Marais des Cygnes river is flooded. I checked the fields north and east of
Rantoul in Franklin County a couple of times today with a walk in between.
Flyover Whimbrels were the highlight of the day, but a mixed flock of
shorebirds on my second search of the same fields contained a single
Semipalmated Sandpiper. Both of which are new to the county list. FYI, the
tar roads headed into Rantoul from the west, north, and east are all closed
due to flooding. It was the talk of the town and no one seemed upset that I
was parked next to the water's edge scoping.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56615100 (1st search)

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56619692 (2nd search)



I had a few lingering migrants today, but the woods along the Flint Hills
Nature Trail north of Rantoul and the Prairie Spirit Trail south of Ottawa
felt like summer.

by checking out Globe Prairie and Colyer Cemetary in southern Douglas Co.
We had good luck with the grassland specialities, finding a very
cooperative Upland Sandpiper and an almost-as-cooperative Loggerhead
Shrike. We heard numerous grasshopper sparrows and a couple blue grosbeaks.
Thought we heard bobwhite but there was also a mockingbird in the area so
can't be sure.

Colyer cemetary was really gorgeous; a pair of red-headed woodpeckers and a
scissor-tailed flycatcher put on a show, along with alder and least
flycatchers, another grasshopper sparrow, and blue grosbeak. No Bell's
vireo there, though we did find one around Globe.

We drove briefly through Chicken Creek (E 850 Rd) on the way back; it
seemed fairly birdy but we were feeling too guilty to spend much time. Best
bird was a possible chestnut-sided that would not appear for us.

Good birding (stay dry!),

Subject: Quivira conditions, 22 May 2019
A word about Quivira conditions: many areas of the Refuge, including NE 170th between the ends of the Wildlife Drive, are unsafe for travel. Although there are still shorebirds around, there so much water coming through the Refuge right now that there are very few accessible areas to view them (at least not safely accessible). The Wildlife Drive is currently closed again due to high water over the spillways, and access across the spillway on the north end of Little Salt Marsh could be closed soon. Persons wishing to visit would be best advised to wait until conditions improve. More rain is forecast through Memorial Day.

Subject: Fitch hooded warbler
I unexpectedly had time on my hands yesterday morning (5/20) so I headed to Fitch NHR (Douglas Co) after daycare drop off. Met Stephen DeHart in the parking area on his way out, who told me about the hooded and worm-eating warblers he had found. I dipped on the WEWA but located the hooded singing off the beginning of the west end of the upper loop. Peter was disappointed to miss out on one of his favorite birds, so we tried again this afternoon after the rain stopped, and refound the hooded giving nice looks off the biology trail between the two ends of the upper loop. That makes our 4th new KS warbler species this spring—what this year has lacked in quantity it has made up in quality! Still Tennessees singing, so maybe migration isn’t quite done.

Good evening,
This evening I searched flooded fields in Northwest Johnson County.
Previously I found 7 Black bellied plovers resting on a pipe in the middle
of a sand pit. One was spotted tonight just south of that in a flooded
field. I was not able to relocate that bird but did find an ongoing
sanderling, two great egrets, and one snowy egret amongst a mix bag of
sandpipers including white rumped, pectoral, spotted, and semipalmated.
There was also a semi-palmated plover as well. Fields east of 43rd and K7
in Shawnee were impassable with cars but I walked in and found there
weren't any shorebirds except killdeer.

Happy birding,

Subject: Hummingbirds, or lack thereof,
On April 28 I saw the first hummingbird of the year in my yard, a male trying to get nectar out of our geraniums. Feeling sorry for his futile effort, I put up the feeder that day.
About a week later, my wife saw a female in the yard. Possibly another week passed and we watched a female at the feeder (cleaned and refilled several times in the intervel). Neither of us have any other sightings in our yard.
A typical scenario for us is to see the first bird, put up the feeder, and then entertain a steady stream of visitors till fall migration has concluded.
Anyone have any similar experiences with hummingbirds this spring, or does anyone have thoughts on why it is so different from the norm? Could it be all the rainfall this year?  We've had a number of rain free days that still didn't bring birds to our feeder.
Whatever is causing this anomaly is not affecting larger fruit and nectar eaters. Between Orioles, catbirds and cardinals, I'm lucky to be able to skip a day refilling the jelly jar.
By the way, these are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. I live in Manhattan, which is east of US Highway 77, which I have been assured by my dear friend and year class member Chuck Otte is a no-cross barrier for western species of hummers.

Subject: Re: Yellow-breasted Chat in Bourbon Co.
>How is this thing a warbler?

In short - it isn't. In 2017 The North American Checklist Committee of the
American Ornithological Society (formerly the American Ornithologists Union)
moved the Yellow-breasted Chat out from under the Warblers classification
and put it in it's own family between sparrows and blackbirds/orioles. The
exact wording in the Checklist Supplement published in the Auk was:

"Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences
indicate that Icteria virens is not a member of the Parulidae (e.g., as in AOU
1998) but instead represents a lineage distinct from other nineprimaried
oscines (Barker et al. 2013, 2015)."

This confirmed what ornithologists knew for decades. The Chat wasn't a
warbler but no one knew what the heck to do with it so it sat at the end of the
Warblers. If you look at the current Kansas Checklist:
http://ksbirds.org/checklist/KansasChecklist.pdf
You will find it placed immediately following Dark-eyed Junco at the end of
the Sparrows and right before Yellow-headed Blackbird at the beginning of
the Blackbirds, Orioles. It is in it's own little grouping, that for lack of a better
term, we simply called, Chats!

Subject: Bay-breasted Warbler in Dickinson Co. / 18 May
I birded my way home from KC on Saturday started at the always interesting
Wyandotte County Lake. There were lots of birds but few obvious migrants.
I did have one singing Blue-headed Vireo. I left when it began to pour down
rain.



After a brief stop in Shawnee County where I also got rained out, I drove
west to Dickinson County. At the south end of the East/Old Herington Lake I
heard a vaguely unfamiliar warbler song. I never got a great look, but it
sang long enough for me find an exact audio match on my Sibley app. It was
a Bay-Breasted Warbler, apparently a new species for Dickinson.



From there I drove through the Maxwell Bison Preserve in McPherson County
and on west towards Lyons where the skies opened up and dropped what felt
like about an 1" of rain per minute. I had to pull off the road several
times because you simply could not see the way forward.



Diane saw one Ruby-throated Hummingbird here at our house this evening, 19
May.

Alright, not big news for most but I saw my first Yellow-breasted Chat ever
today on my family's property in Bourbon Co..

After doing some research on their specific habitat preferences I narrowed
down an area, studied the vocalization and sure enough, he was there in a
thicket of wild plums and close to a massive blackberry patch. He was
imitating a flicker and a jay, remarkably well, too. How is this thing a
warbler? DNA similarities no doubt but the likeness stops there. Seems
like a mix between a tanager and a thrasher.

A Bell's Vireo was nearby, insistent in its vocalization which I was able
to record and figure out later. I saw it well enough to corroborate the
vocalization.

was low. We started on the little salt marsh at Quivira with a Red-necked
Phalarope. On the big salt marsh Stilt Sandpipers were numerous, with a few
Sanderlings as well. We were treated to great looks at a pair of Least
Terns. We didn't see the Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks west of Ellinwood,
but we did see a Burrowing Owl SW of there. The only shorebirds at Cheyenne
Bottoms were phalaropes, but we had a great look at a Red-necked. There was
also a lingering Ross's Goose.

I was at Morton county for several days before that. I saw many birds,
but the Green Tailed Towhee was probably my best bird at Middle Spring.
I tried to bird Cheyenne Bottoms, but a huge hail storm hit the area. It
looked like winter with 1 to 2 inches of hail on the ground. That couldn’t
have been good for the birds. The birding was as bad as I have ever seen it
there, for many years, due to high water. Jim Nickel Peabody, KS

Subject: Thrushes...
On the topic of thrushes... I have been monitoring nocturnal flight calls
for 4 years now at my residence in Neosho Co. Thrushes are relatively easy
to separate by their nocturnal flight call. I have long hoped for a
wayward Bicknell's to end up on my recordings. Hasn't happened yet. But
what has happened is I have recorded a much higher % of Gray-cheeked
Thrushes than I ever thought I would. Makes a guy wonder if they either
call more frequently during nocturnal flight or there are more of them out
there than one would suspect. Some nights I will record one Gray-cheeked
for every 3 or 4 Swainson's.

Another strange tidbit is I did not have a single Swainson's thrush last
fall on my recordings, when typically I would have several hundred if over
a thousand. The first fall any sort of drop off like that has occurred.

IF anyone is doing any work on migratory thrushes in Kansas I'd be happy to
get you copies of the nocturnal flight calls for analysis.

Subject: Re: Bicknell's Thrush, Manhattan
I think it would be quite exciting if this was another Bicknell's-Veery hybrid. A hybrid could have a song that is more Bicknell's, while other such hybrids could have a song that is more Veery. And the same could be true of other possible hybrid combinations within genus Catharus. Who knows.
As for their songs, that first-hand account of the Bicknell's-Veery hybrid says: "And at that moment I heard it, the bird let out a long flute-like song with the first half pure Veery and the second half pure Bicknells Thrush, rising upward at the end rather than spiraling downward. The Veery and the Bicknells were one and the same. I listened in disbelief as the bird switched back and forth between a full Veery and the half Bicknells song."
The Bicknell's breeding range also hosts breeding Veery Thrushes, so hybridization could be more common than we realize (especially at intermediate elevations). And a hybrid could migrate across Kansas along with normal (full-blooded) Veery thrushes during the spring. It certainly merits further scrutiny and more people looking out for possible hybrids.
---------------Ken Kinman (Hays)
P.S. As for Bicknell's and Gray-Cheeked Thrushes, could climate change be forcing some Bicknell's a bit further north into Gray-Cheeked breeding areas (and/or vice versa)? They have only have been considered separate species for less than 25 years, and there could be small areas of overlap between their breeding ranges which could expand (and where hybridization could increasingly occur). The following mentions a possible hybrid between them and other evidence of admixture: https://pqdtopen.proquest.com/doc/1906269395.html?FMT=ABS

Hi Folks,

It appears most of the bird migration has gone through Oak Park. Over the weekend, almost all of the birds that were in Oak Park for so long with the North winds and rain, have left. They were waiting for the South winds, which finally arrived. I haven’t seen a warbler for three days, along with all of the other species. I expect a few stragglers for a few days, but it will be hard to see them as Oak Park is very dense this year with all of the resent rain. I don’t remember a worse year than this year, cold temperatures, North winds, etc. But, hey, that is what you have to do, if you want to see the birds. On the good side, it has been so cold, so far no mosquitos and chiggers. But, that won’t take long for them to show up. It does appear the Hummingbirds have arrived in force this year, which is good to see, so far I’ve only seen Ruby-throated hummingbirds, but it is early.

Happy birding,

I'm pretty certain that no jury would, or should, revise the State checklist based on no more information than I've been able to provide. I've done more research and will supply these additional comments.

I've seen a few pictures of tan-ish Gray-cheeked Thrush to erode my confidence of a visual confirmation of the bird I saw. Which leaves me with the song.

I've listened to several audio recordings of both species, and I maintain that TO MY EARS, the songs are separable. It's like with Veery and Wood Thrush, both songs have a similar ethereal quality, but you can still tell one from another, bird unseen.

The way the songs of Bicknell's and Gray-cheeked bounce off my particular set of eardrums makes it possible for me to tell them apart. And what I heard was a Bicknell's song, again based on audio recordings and absolutely no prior experience with the critter.

Using this information, each member of the jury will have to decide for themselves. As I said, I'm not expecting a checklist revision.

I have three quick additions to Ted's report:

I saw a Curve-billed Thrasher in the Hugoton Cemetery on 13 May (Monday).
They have been recorded there many times in the last 5 or so years, but on
any given day they can also be absent, so no guarantees.

A Greater Roadrunner was along the 'river road' in Seward County on 15 May
about 3 miles east of the Big Samson Bridge. It was my first roadrunner for
Seward even though I've birded there for decades and even did some atlas
blocks. I think Seward would be the 14th county where I've recorded a GRRO.

I drove home through Liberal in order to check the Arkalon area for Bronzed
Cowbirds. We are approaching the first anniversary of the first state
record down there. There were lots of birds in the Arkalon Campground and
also the nearby Big Samson rest area along US 54, but I saw zero Bronzed
Cowbirds. Hopefully others will keep checking this spot during June.

Ok, thanks for all the helpful information from many folks. And thanks, Galen, aka Captain Obvious, for making sure I knew the bird isn't on the Kansas list. (jk, Galen, you know I love you).
I'm going to rephrase my report. This morning I observed a bird that looked and sounded just like the Bicknell's Thrush from the Cornell web site. However, due to frequency of hybridization, variations in song, and sheer distance, it is more likely the bird was at least part Gray-cheeked.

Subject: Morton County
I just returned last night from three days of birding in Morton County. Most of the time I was birding with Scott Seltman. The weather, wildflowers and grasslands were beautiful, and the birds weren't too bad either. We saw and photographed western species like Western Tanager, Cassin's Kingbird, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Lazuli Buntings, Lark Buntings, Black-headed Grosbeaks,and Scaled Quail. Warblers included Parulas, Redstarts, single Mourning and MacGillivray's, several Northern Waterthrushes and many Yellow-rumps of both types. The Shelterbelt held a displaying male Black-chinned Hummingbird, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, five Broad-wing Hawks, lots of Pine Siskins and waxwings, and a thriving Black-crowned Night Heron colony. Out on the grasslands we saw three Common Ravens and discovered that an old raven nest site is now being used by a pair of Barn Owls. Over the three days some of what we saw at the sewer ponds included three Cinnamon Teal, three White Pelicans, White-faced Ibis, two Stilt Sandpipers, Willet, Avocet, Black-necked Stilt, Black Terns, lots of phalaropes, cormorants, and the normal assortment of more common ducks and shorebirds. -- Ted

Subject: Steve Lloyd Wetlands, Clay County
After getting home from KOS Sunday afternoon Jaye and I headed right back
out and went up to the flooded wetlands (does that sound weird??) on the
north end of Milford Lake. I'd seen the Janzen/Groeneweg/Ewert birding
party report of Ruddy Turnstones at the Steve Lloyd Wetlands so wondered
if they were still around. We found zero shorebirds but did have a couple
of very vocal Sedge Wrens.

Seeing John Row's report from Tuesday of Ruddy Turnstones from the same
location, we headed back there last night. This time we found numerous
shorebirds (and a pair of copulating gopher snakes!). This time we DID
find a Ruddy Turnstone, 8 very noisy Willets, a Greater Yellowlegs, some
White-rumped Sandpipers and miscellaneous other shorebirds. It was kind of
hard to spend much time concentrating on them as a Peregrine kept poofing
them into flight!

Milford Lake is nearly 17 feet high right now with no relief in sight in
the near future for it to drop and lots of opportunity for it to go
higher. Once they start releasing water it will be quite a while before it
can return to "normal" level. All of this to say that we could have a very
good July/August situation for shorebirds at Milford. In 1993, when the
lake hit record high levels 20 feet higher than it is now, there was a
huge dead bathtub ring all around the lake. When vegetation is under water
as long as it has been now it tends to degrade to nothing. Whenever the
lake level drops there will be extensive mud flats. In late summer 1993 we
had incredible shorebird numbers and species diversity. We could see that
again this year. It also means that unless the water drops soon and we get
a flush of growth of vegetation these bath tub ring areas will be devoid
of birds (sparrows, finches, etc.) this fall and winter. Many trees in
this flood zone will also likely die due to submersion. Which means that 2
to 4 years from now we'll likely have a big jump in woodpecker numbers, as
we saw following the 1993 flood. Areas around Tuttle Creek and Perry Lakes
will also likely see the same thing!

When life gives you lemons...

I birded a few of my favorite spots in Wabaunsee County this morning. The
strong south wind was blocked by the cliff at Echo Cliff Park, and two
Acadian flycatchers sang their iconic *peet-zeet* call. They are
probably nesting there again. A yellow-throated vireo also gave good
looks.
At Mission View Cemetery I was pleasantly surprised to see a Mississippi
kite flying overhead, and two Bewick's wrens sang and scolded. Bewick's
wrens have been loyal to this location; if you need them for a list, this
is a good place to find them.
There were many other common and expected species.

My phone is virtually worthless for both photos and videos. The bird appeared to be a tan-ish Gray-cheeked, with more of a hint of eye ring. The song completely threw me till I listened to several thrush songs on the Cornell site allaboutbirds.org. Bicknell's was a perfect match.

Subject: A week of birding
I left Hays on Wednesday morning 5/8 to travel to Fort Scott for spring KOS
meeting and just returned Wednesday night 5/15. It was seven days of dawn to
dark birding and a great trip.

5/8 was a travel rather than a birding day. I stopped by the Wetlands
Education Center in Barton County on the way to Leavenworth so birded some
in Rush, Rice, Ellsworth, Saline, and Shawnee counties. Highlights were
Godwits and Avocets in flooded fields as well as seeing at least 25 Eastern
Kingbirds in one small tree.

Thursday morning, I birded Ft. Leavenworth with John Schukman and Kathy
Carol. It was a gorgeous morning with many birds singing and calling.
Warblers, Tanagers, and Thrushes seemed to be calling and singing
everywhere. I was glad to be with experience birders who could pick out and
identify the various bird sounds and help me try to learn them.

Thursday afternoon I birded my way to Franklin County spending a little time
in Leavenworth, Johnson, Douglas, and Franklin counties. Highlights included
Bobolinks on the Douglas/Johnson County line right where Cathy told me they
would be.

Friday morning was spent on the trails near Rantoul in Franklin county with
a group led by Malcolm Gold. It was another beautiful morning spent in
great habitat surrounded by singing birds. Much thanks go to Malcolm and
Jeff Calhoun for helping me learn more about how to hear the sounds around
us. A highlight was a Lazuli Bunting.

Thursday afternoon Jeff Calhoun, John Schukman and I birded our way to Ft.
Scott. We hit spots in Franklin and mostly Anderson County. A highlight was
warblers at Garnett north lake park and Bobolinks in a random pasture
somewhere southeast of Garnett.

Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday morning were spent at KOS. I
spent the entire KOS in Bourbon County. Friday evening Daniel Kerr invited
us to his farm to listen for nightjars. A few Chuck's called, but we didn't
hear Whips. It didn't matter because the evening and the setting were both
beautiful. Saturday Chuck Otte led a trip to various parks and lakes. A
highlight was a Painted Bunting standing on a rock right in the road and
turning all sides toward us to make sure we were able to appreciate his
beauty. A Palm Warbler did the same thing, but somehow it didn't have the
same impact. A highlight of KOS meetings is always getting to spend time
with other birders and learning from them as we enjoy the birds and the
experience together.

Sunday afternoon, I birded my way to Garnett. A highlight was Lehigh
Portland Trails near Iola in Allen County. Other KOS birders had found a lot
of good birds there Sunday morning and I was fortunate to find a few Sunday
afternoon. I didn't see all of the good warblers seen in the morning, but I
did see 5 Ovenbirds and 6 Magnolia Warblers and 9 total warbler species. Who
could ask for more?

Sunday evening and Monday morning, I tried for Whip-poor-Wills around
Garnett but only got Chuck's. It was still beautiful to be out and hear
birds I don't hear around Hays.

Monday the 13th I birded Anderson, Coffey, and Osage counties. Highlights
included being able to identify Nashville, Black-and-white, Prothonotary,
Kentucky, and Louisiana Waterthrush all by song before I saw them. Another
highlight was finding a male Lazuli Bunting on the trail at Lake Garnett
Park. The Lazuli Bunting is apparently new to the Anderson County list.

Tuesday's objective was to work on my county lists in Shawnee, Jackson, and
Jefferson counties. THE highlight was finding a female Cape May Warbler in
Felker Park in Topeka. It was my first one in Kansas.

Wednesday 5/15 was the last day of this trip. I went with Malcolm Gold and a
fairly large group of birders on his Burroughs Audubon walk at Mill Creek
Streamway Trail in Johnson County. It was evident that migration is winding
down, but still a great morning. A highlight was getting to bird with a
group of people in a beautiful somewhat natural setting in the city.

After leaving the park, I visited some flooded fields. The first with
Malcolm Gold near Mill Creek Streamway Trail. We picked up several species
of shorebirds. I then stopped by some fields north of DeSoto (thanks to
Aaron Batterbee) where highlights included an American Golden Plover,
Semi-palmated Plover, and a flyover of 4 Hudsonian Godwits.

Other stops on the way home included a visit to my mother-in-law on the farm
in Riley County. I took her some flowers and was rewarded by adding Bell's
Vireo and Kentucky Warbler to my Riley County list.

The last stop on my week of birding was to the flooded fields on Jeep Road
in Dickinson County. One field looked like a lake to me and apparently to
some birds too. Highlights included Black Terns, American Golden and
Semi-palmated Plovers, and 2 Ruddy Turnstones.

I also saw at least 5 Buff-breasted Sandpipers. This is the first time I
have ever seen this species in the spring. I don't know how common spring
sightings are. It is also apparently new to the Dickinson County list. They
were the last species I spotted on my week of birding early to late every
day. This was a fantastic way to end one of the very best weeks of my life.
As any of you who have birded with me know, I really struggle to learn bird
songs, but I could definitely see progress over the week.

Thanks to the many people who helped make my week so great.

Henry A.

I have compiled the county by county breakdown of what was seen at the
spring KOS meeting this past weekend. The link is posted below. We are
currently at 159 species.

There are two orphan species that were called out at the compilation on
Sunday that don't show up on the big checklists. If you called out Mallard or
Least Bittern, please drop me an email so I can assign them to their proper
county. If not, they will be removed from the master list.

Subject: Flint Hills Nature Trail - Franklin County
Terry Swope and I returned to Franklin County this morning and explored the
Flint Hills Nature Trail headed west from Rantoul. The first 0.35 miles of
this trail includes nice habitat that has held migrants on each of my four
visits. Both Waterthrushes, a couple of Magnolia, a Black-throated Green, a
silent Ovenbird, and a silent male Bay-breasted Warbler were the highlights
in this section of the trail today.

But today was more about walking 2 miles and checking out the wooded
habitat along the Marais Des Cygnes River. The habitat on this section of
trail is similar to the trail headed east out of Rantoul (yet in Franklin
County) with mature hardwood forests close by, yet it has more brush and
lower canopy trees as you might expect with areas that transition between
habitat types.

A nice mixed flock of warblers was along the trail after we turned around,
with a Mourning Warbler and another Black-throated Green Warbler at eye
level. As we stopped to look at these a Black-billed Cuckoo landed above
our heads. I believe this my personal highest number of warbler species in
one day in Kansas, and it was great to share it with Terry.

I'm sitting in a lawn chair here at Perry State Park looking at the flooded lake, and a Sandhill Crane just flew over head. Definitely did not expect that.

Subject: Cape May Topeka
I had what I believe was a female Cape May warbler in Felker Park in Topeka this morning. I don’t know the park so I’m not sure where I was but it’s very close to a place where a nice wide sidewalk intersects with what looks like a 2 Track gravel Rd.

A post has a small blue sign that says to “Orville Rice nature Trail” and points South.

Subject: Wichita birdathon/Marion co big day
Kevin Groeneweg, Jim Nickel, Curt Van Boening, Bob Hoopes and I did the
Wichita Birdathon today in Marion County. We started at 6:00 am in Peabody
with robins singing at the city park and ended about 5:45 pm with a
great-tailed grackle seen while we were driving out of Hillsboro. We had
122 birds on the day and given that Marion Reservoir was at least 6 feet
higher than usual, and all rivers over their banks, and many back roads
were impassable due to mud, we felt that was a great total. We had 11
warblers, not bad for the area. The 10 shorebirds included 4 black- bellied
plovers near the reservoir causeway, county firsts for Jim and I. We had
summer tanagers at 3 locations. Most unexpected bird of the day was a
red-breasted nuthatch at the Peabody city park.
I think Kevin added 31 new birds to his Marion list and I added 4. (The
other guys aren't listers.)
We saw some great countryside, got our boots really mucked up and had a
great time. I think we raised well over $1,000 for Wichita Audubon.

Subject: Fitch NHR DG Co: Connecticut and Worm-eating (++)
I was trying to convince Peter to drive to the OP Arboretum this morning
rather than going to Fitch, figuring it was highly unlikely we could
relocate the Connecticut warbler Steven DeHart found yesterday. Fortunately
Fitch won out, and we did indeed refind the Connecticut, singing at the top
of the western end of the upper loop trail. We chased it around for a while
trying to rule out northern waterthrush, and finally Peter got a brief
visual. Yahoo! We would have been happy with that find and the nice looks
at Canada and golden-winged that we had had, but near the east end of the
upper loop we heard the long trill of a worm-eating warbler! We were able
to get great visuals on the bird from the biology loop trail between the
two trailheads for the upper loop.
We ended up with 19 warbler species, even though we missed some others that
folks have reported:

Worm-eating
LA waterthrush 2
golden-winged 3
black and white 1 female
Tennessee many
orange-crowned 3
Nashville many
Connecticut
Kentucky 7 or 8
Common yellowthroat 2
Redstart
parula 4
blackburnian 1 singing
yellow 11
blackpoll 3 singing
yellow-rumped 4 still here and singing
Black-throated green
Canada
wilson's

I had hopes for a scarlet tanager, but no such luck -- I guess I'll have to
be happy with what we got! :)

Good birding,

Subject: Sandra Shaw: Monday
Burcham was locked this morning so I birded its extension - Sandra Shaw. It was foggy when I started but a beautiful morning when I left. The gate was open later at Burcham and they appear to be cleaning the river walk. So it might be open tomorrow. At 8PM there was a concentration of Tennessee and Nashville Warblers at the start of the wooded area to the north of the sidewalk at the east end of the part. It was the most active spot and there was a great deal of singing, chasing, and flitting around. The first time all year they provided good looks in the bright morning sun

Warblers
Tennessee - 9 - singing & lots of nots
Nashville - 10 - singing and lots of notes
Yellow - 6 most singing & a few females
Wilson's - 3 - 1 singing
Northern Waterthrush - 1 singing
Palm - 1 late tail waging
Orange-crowned - 1
Golden-winged - 1 notes

Gray Catbird - 2 singing constantly
Swainson's Thrush - 2 notes
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 3 - 2 pair together with male singing

Subject: KOS Spring Meeting
I did not have time to start sorting through the county lists from KOS Spring
Meeting last night but based on the results from the noon compilation at Fort
Scott we were at about 153 species from noon Friday through noon Sunday
in Bourbon, Allen, Crawford, and Linn Counties. While that may sound a little
bit low, keep in mind that we had 4 waterfowl species and 4 plover/sandpiper
species. We saw this same situation in 2012 when we were in Franklin, Allen
and Anderson counties.

Complete compiled list and county by county lists should be together and
published in a few days! Thanks to all who attended and "muddled" through
the rains! In spite of the showers we had a great time!

Subject: Weekend around HV and MP Counties
I birded the Sand Creek / Bethel College trail Friday (Newton, HV County)
and had 8 species of warblers (Ovenbird, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, Tennessee,
Orange-crowed, Nashville, Blackpoll, and Black and White) along with
Warbling, Red-eyed, and Bell's Vireo. About 42 species total.

I birded the marshes of SW Harvey County on Saturday and found little to
excite me apart from 70 some Godwits at West Lake (south of Burrton).
They were a mix of Hudsonian and Marbled Godwits. I needed the four wheel
drive in that area.

This AM my brother and I birded the Big Basin of the McPherson Valley
Wetlands. We had over ten Sora calling and often seen, a handful of
Virginia Rails, about 8 American Bittern, 2 Horned Grebe and
countless others. There is no driving that refuge and a few spots of high
water even got the best of my almost knee high boots. Cold hands, cold
face, wet and cold feet. All minor issues when seeing good birds.

The birds were a nice distraction from cleaning water out of my basement.
That said, the wet areas host shorebirds that usually have few options in
terms of feeding

Three of us spent late Saturday morning birding along Walla Walla Road. Highlights include a male and female Painted Bunting found in the same area we have found this species in the past; Indigo Buntings, Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, a Black Poll Warbler, a Common Yellowthroat, a Red Shouldered Hawk, a Blue Grey Gnatcatcher while hearing Summer Tanagers, Red Eyed Vireos and numerous other species we could not identify. It was a fine morning to be along this pleasant stretch of road.

Subject: Franklin County Lazuli Bunting and OP Arboretum Warblers
Yesterday I was able to spend time in Franklin County with John Mallery,
Micky Louis, Jeff Calhoun and Henry Armknecht. At the Flint Hills Nature
Trail (West) Trailhead we had a male Lazuli Bunting. Many migrants were
seen on the Flint Hills Nature Trail (East of Rantoul) and a few shorebirds
were found along the flooded fields. For curious minds, the East trail is
in Franklin County for approximately 1.6 miles and then you walk into Miami
County.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56089558 (East trail with best habitat)
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56079090 (Shorebird list)
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56077455 (West trail with Lazuli list)

Due to work commitments I didn't attend KOS today. My youngest wanted to
walk and explore Overland Park Arboretum in Johnson County this afternoon
so we took visiting Grandma there to look at plants and get muddy feet. Of
course I was distracted by migrating birds but that was expected since I
brought binoculars.

While at the Arboretum I ran into Kelli Egbert and Stuart Hazard who had a
Philadelphia Vireo at the east end of the Bluff Loop Trail and had multiple
Golden-winged Warblers on the Cottonwood Trail. We said our hellos and
departed with my family took the Bluff Loop trail west on the high side and
they took the low side next to the river; soon they yelled through the
woods that they had a Blue-winged Warbler. I fortunately heard it
approximately 30 minutes later a bit further west. Before I got to the west
bridge I had a non-singing male Black-throated Blue Warbler foraging with a
small mixed flock. The kids took Grandma to see the "manicured" portion of
the park and I was left to walk the West Trail. Overall the park was full
of birds, with a few of them still singing luckily. Here is track of the
walk with four-letter codes where some of the warblers were seen.

Subject: Saturday: Chicken Creek
The morning was chilly and rainy - checked out Burcham which had the gate open but the river walk was closed due to the mud from the flood. I took a ten minute walk in the center & north of the park and got rained out. Later in the morning I headed to Chicken Creek and came back to Lawrence. through Lone Star. For a about an hour when the rain stopped (1O:30ish AM) the south half of wooded road on Chicken Creek was very busy. Many birds were not singing and the light was poor so that I probably missed more individual likely warblers than I listed. Red-eyed Vireos & Baltimore Orioles were plentiful and singing constantly in most of the wooded areas

Warblers (most at Chicken Creek)
Yellow-rumped - 3
Nashville - 3 singing
Tennessee - 3 singing
Northern Parula- 5 singing
Orange-crowned - 2
Yellow - 5 several singing
Wilson's - 2 singing
Magnolia - FOS1 singing loud and long
Golden-winged - FOS 1 & possibly 2 - sung in a short tree about 10 or 15 feet above my head; later saw the male chasing and presenting but did not get a good look at the other bird
Kentucky - FOS1 sang in the open close at eyelevel- beautiful bird
Louisiana Waterthrush - 1 singing
Northern Waterthrush - 3 singing
Prothonotary - 1 singing (Boathouse at Burcham)

Acadian Flycatcher - FO2 doing their note

Subject: Connecticut at Ellsworth
A Connecticut Warbler is currently in Ellsworth. Location is the west end of town immediately north of the RR tracks.

Go to the west end of 8th Street to a place where there is a short road headed SW to the railroad. Park by the tracks and the warbler is in the wood just to the NW.  Spends most time on the ground.

Found by Roger Schultz on Thursday, many photos by Dave Klema today.

Subject: Orioles
For about 10 days now, I've seen up to 12 Orioles at one time (varying numbers of Baltimore and Orchard orioles, m/f, mature/ immature) at my jelly feeders, nectar feeders, and oranges. I don't know how many are repeats, but at least 12 different individuals for sure. They are beautiful and their interactions are hilarious! One of the Orchards is so dark he looks nearly solid black.
When the jelly is gone, one of the Orioles will sit on the rose bush outside my window and chatter at me. I wonder if they have begun to associate the house with the jelly?
At any rate, the birds are great "time wasters." I like to sit and watch them.

They are consuming a large jar of jelly and 2 orange halves each day.

Subject: Nest Check
Thought I'd give you all an update on my nest boxes in Topeka. I just
checked them this afternoon.

The chickadees are doing well. They have some feathers now. All 5 eggs
hatched.

The house wrens have their first egg. Two days ago I threw some
diatomaceous earth in the bottom of the box as ants had moved in. All this
rain is making the nest boxes perfect for ants.

The flickers have 3 chicks. 4 eggs didn't hatch. I removed the eggs and
one had a complete yoke in it, the other two were watery. I think the egg
with the yoke was an egg dump as it appeared after the clutch was laid.

The bluebirds hatched 4 eggs, they look good.

Still too early for the great crested flycatchers.

I finally finished my video on mounting nest boxes on telescoping poles
made of conduit. This is how all of my active nests are mounted.
https://youtu.be/fU2c03w48nY

If you are hosting birds in nest boxes there are so many things that can go
wrong, so its important to monitor the nests every 3 or 4 days. This year
I've had paper wasps and ants to deal with..Always house sparrows and
starlings although this year they've been way less of a problem.

If you are on Facebook I will post pictures there.

Subject: Quivira birding and conditions
Huge amounts of water are collecting and passing through Quivira. Although the rains are mostly over, there is a lot of runoff. Refuge staff closed the Wildlife Drive today due to high water over Big Salt Marsh spillways. As of noon today (5/9), spillways at Little Salt Marsh area were still driveable, but that could change. Water is actually over the road in several places along NE 170th Street, and the flats are completely under water. Many lesser county roads could be nasty.

Bottom line: if you had not yet made a decision to visit Quivira this weekend, you may want to change your mind and come when it's drier. if you are planning to come anyway, be aware there may be many impassible places, many of which are not under the refuge's maintenance, but under the county's. Some areas will be risky. Regardless, shorebird viewing will not be very spectacular, due to the large amounts of water everywhere.

Had 20 warbler species this morning at Neosho WA. Had both good quantity
and quality. I worked from wind break to wind break. The rarest warbler was
a singing Prairie Warbler. Also added Blackburnian, Magnolia, Bay-breasted,
Chestnut-sided, and Golden-winged. Had big numbers of Yellow Warblers,
which is usually indicative of peak warbler migration. Up to 27 warbler
species for Neosho Co this year. Good variety of other birds too with a
Veery, Grey-cheeked Thrush, and Philadelphia Vireos. Nearly every where I
birded had flooded timber and it did not seem to effect the birding one
bit. Hope this bodes well for the folks heading to SEK for the KOS meeting

The weather this morning was March-like. Thankfully the birds were more Spring-like. I took the upper trail at the Midland access in Johnson County hoping to find some migrant activity. Very few birds were seen until I reached the ridge. At that point the birding really improved. I encountered several mixed flocks as I headed south along the path. Warblers, Vireos, Tanagers and others were present. Some great looks and plenty of lousy ones too - that's all part of the fun!

We had low expectations for birding on this gray and chilly morning at Shawnee Mission Park but were pleased to see a great variety of species. First we saw two Common Loons on the lake and then many warblers along the trail that starts uphill from the lake and goes down to the loop trail. Warbler species included Black-and-white, male and female American Redstarts, two Blackburnians, an Ovenbird, Chestnut-sided, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, and Northern Parula. In that same area were male and female Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, a male Summer Tanager, a Great-crested Flycatcher, and Red-eyed Vireos. Other species of note further along the trail included Baltimore Orioles, Indigo Buntings, Warbling Vireos, a Yellow-throated Vireo, and Gray Catbirds. Complete list and pictures of the Loons, Blackburnian Warbler, and Ovenbird are on the ebird listing https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56045034.

Later yesterday afternoon (Wed.) we had this activity, among the usual Cardinals, House finches, Robins, Grackles, EC and MO Doves, etc, as well as the odd Red Winged Blackbird:

2 Harris’s Sparrows mingling with 4 or 5 White crowned Sparrows and 4 or 5 Clay-colored Sparrows. Also a Lincoln’s Sparrow, around for a few days already.

a White-winged Dove on the sunflower seed tray

a Gray catbird in our thorny Bitter orange tree

a Least Flycatcher


Earlier we’ve had a pair of Thrashers, probably nesting, and then a Mockingbird—first ever at this house but evidently not for long Most surprisingly, for another drop-in and show, a Yellowthroat; it went straight to the Barberry bush beside the flower garden. Also a Chipping Sparrow.

Notably absent, for some months now, is a Cooper’s Hawk. Both adult and juvenile had been fairly frequent here on their neighborhood tours.

This is a back yard with much cover and close to a dense shelter belt.

I was out there Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The major roads, at that time, around Cheyenne Bottoms were pretty good. Word had it the roads around the Nature Conservancy's were flooded or deep mud. We had no problems around Quivira, ...but that was then and some localized places have really been hammered.

You probably should call the Kansas Wetlands Education Center and Quivira Headquarters to get an up to date report.

FYI - The Bottoms was pretty dead for birding when we were there. Water in traditional places was too deep for shorebirds. They had no problems finding good habitat all across the area. Quivira was better but not gangbusters.

Subject: Bobolinks in Marion and Butler Co
I had 6 bobolinks near Burns KS this morning. They flew across the road
from Marion into Butler County. I had 4 more bobolinks a couple miles north
on the road to Peabody.

At the Peabody City Park there were a lot of birds including 3 black and
white warblers, numerous Swainson's thrush and a well seen wood thrush.

Still time to support the Wichita Audubon birdathon which Kevin, Jim Nickel
and I will run next Monday in Marion county. Email me your pledges and I'll
send you a report when we are done.

Subject: Spring KOS Birding Locations.. Bourbon, Northern Crawford, and Allen...
Hello! As an avid SEK area birder thought I would run down my favorite
spots in these three counties for KOS Spring 2019 participants to drop into
on their way too and from. I'm going to gear this mostly to spring
migrants.

Allen: Lehigh Portland Trails - Simply the best public birding location in
Allen. I would highly recommend walking the backbone trail that heads west
from the main parking location on the NE portion of the property. That
walk takes you through various level of riparian habitat. The whole
property is a fun bird and could take you all morning if you wanted.
Painted Buntings dot the native meadows. Does require mostly walking.
https://ebird.org/hotspot/L4581896

Allen: Camp Hunter Park - Quick little birding stop in Humbolt with lots of
history. Riparian/ park like habitats. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L3133924

Allen: Mt Hope Cemetery, Humbolt - Another quick little spot to hit that
has nice habitats. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L2507097

Bourbon: Gun Park - This park should/will/could be known as one of the
best warbling locations in the state. The network of trails and woodland
habitats make it a fun birding experience. I literally think any warbler
could be possible here. Assuming it's not flooded every KOS participant
should at least spend an hour here. 25+ warbler species just here during
KOS? one can dream, wouldn't surprise me, timing will be perfect, will the
weather/flood/migration be?. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L3766100

Bourbon: Elm Creek Lake - In my top 3 SEK birding locations, I always get
a kick out of this lake. It's the closest thing to a migrant trap we have
in SEK. Usually best early morning, it has great shorebird potential in
normal/dry years, be sure to check all the coves(wet year this year). The
trees N of the dam usually hold nice migrants and can be birded from the
dam road. A nice bonus is the adjoining prairies of Hollister WA.
Henslow's anyone? Assuming it hasn't been burned.
https://ebird.org/hotspot/L964984

Bourbon: Bourbon SFL and prairies to the southeast - BSFL is very hit and
miss for me, but has produced nice warblers when timing is right. The far
S end of the lake and the area around the dam are usually the most
productive. One of the last large tracts of prairie in the far SE part of
Kansas reside S and SE of the lake. Take some time to appreciate it, it
will soon be home to a wind farm. During raptor migration it is a great
spot. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L984201

Crawford: Crawford State Park - The area and trails below the dam are the
best most reliable location on this property for warblers. The more upland
trails on the east have produced from time to time but are more hit and
miss. Black Vultures have been seen here several times.
https://ebird.org/hotspot/L2365159

I don't know much about Linn and Anderson, but if any KOSers have any
questions prior to or during your KOS birding adventures on the above areas
this weekend please feel free to drop me a note.

Roads aren't generally a problem in far SE Kansas. Even with lots of rain
they are usually passable for 2WD vehicles. With the exceptions of low
water crossings. But if a road sign says minimum maintenance, they really
mean it, don't go down those with a wet year like this one.

Good luck.. hope to see you around!

Subject: Kettle Birds, the Larned observation
My limited experience would say that you cannot rule out Broad -winged Hawk.
Most of ours went through a week to 10 days ago. We miss a lot of Broad-winged Hawks because they are circling extremely high. MIKI kettles are certainly not as common in May as they are farther into the breeding season. That and all the kites are certainly not back yet which, would put a small doubt on the probability of producing that large of a kettle. If it were to occur, Larned would be one of the most likely towns for it to happen. Since Seltman's 4th of July high MIKI count in Larned several decades ago I was convinced that Larned had a larger popn of kites than Garden City. If they were MIKI, the could have been migrants. However, if you consider a line from Pueblo, through Lamar, Garden City, Dodge City, Larned, Great Bend, then maybe on to Salina and Junction City that there are no other towns north of there with more than 4 or 5 pairs. So where would 70 kites be going north of Larned? That considered there are thousands of places that a kettle of 70 BWHAs could still be headed north of Larned.
My 3 cents worth,
Tom Shane

Had a large kettle of birds I think were Mississippi Kites. Would that be correct for this time of year, or have I miss identified them. There were an estimated 50 to 70 birds soaring at a very extreme altitude ?? Donnie K. in Larned

This time of year nesting is definitely an options. When they have nested
in Kansas they've been early in the game, just like Pine Siskins! I hope
they keep looking for juveniles. A friend had fledglings at her feeder
near the Junction City Cemetery several years ago in late May.

A soggy good evening to everyone!

Just a note to everyone coming to KOS Spring Meeting in Fort Scott. Thanks
to the weather, exact field trips may not be known until Friday evening or
Saturday morning due to the rather fluid weather conditions, if you
understand what I'm saying. Marais des Cygnes is pretty much inaccessible
due to flooding. All of the area we are planning to visit had heavy rains this
afternoon and more forecasted through Wednesday. BUT the weekend is
looking pretty good!!!! We are essentially planning on Saturday for one field
trip to Linn County, one to Bourbon County and hopefully one to Crawford
County. This is all subject to a lot of things, some of which are out of our
control. Regardless, we will have fun!!

Subject: Franklin County Warblers (Rantoul)
I had a fantastic morning birding with Terry Swope in Franklin County. We
walked the Flint Hills Nature Trail east of Rantoul to the Miami County
line and then checked a couple of shorebird locations near Ottowa. I don't
recall having as many birds nor diversity of birds in Kansas before on a
single stop. Any day with more than 10 warbler species seems good, this one
was quite special. The habitat is seems very similar to much of the Marais
des Cygnes WA and NWR habitat once you walk east half a mile.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55915478

The calm morning without wind and almost no ambient noise was perfect for a
walk and we only saw two electric assisted bikes with wonderful numbers of
Blackpoll, Golden-winged, Blackburnian, and a single Cape May. I had a nice
collection of warblers last Friday on the same trail headed west out of
Rantoul, the mature woods and thick brush along the trail seems like a good
migrant trap.

The crazy good shorebird habitat around the flooded fields north of Rantoul
from Friday is gone. The fields are almost dry and the dirt roads in the
area are easily drivable. We found a handful of shorebirds and the most
reliable location I've had this year just north of Ottawa.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55919446

Birding is better with good friends; thanks Terry.

Scott Wright and I found a bay-breasted warbler in Oak park this morning in
Wichita. We were able to follow it so a few other birders could find it as
well. There was also a report of a blackburnian in the park around 8:00 but
we couldn't locate that. Overall, there were more warblers than a
South-Central Kansas birder might expect with a number of redstarts, black
& white, blackpoll, Nashville and other good birds. Lots of Swainson's
thrush and empids around.

I arrived early with high hopes as my birding has been slowed by work and weather. Things were very slow and I almost left early but, high in a tall tree by the playground was movement. I have never seen a Palm Warbler 50 feet up in a tree before. Wow! Unbelievable! More movement drew my attention as a pair of Blackpoll Warblers chased each other. This single tree had 16 species including 6 warbler species. I stood here for a long time enjoying the show. Again things slowed down but I kept adding to the list. The baby geese, turtles basking in the sun and rainbows in the fountains drew my attention when it slowed. As I turned a corner coming up the hill toward the restroom Red-eyed Vireos were singing close by so I stopped and again caught movement. A Golden-winged Warbler was moving on the backside of the tree. As I moved around for a better view a flash of orange above me caught my eye. A male Blackburnian Warbler was moving around with some Tennessee and Yellow-rumped Warblers. It moved from the top of tree to tree and then disappeared to trees on the other side of the woods.

What a great morning.

Warblers
Yellow-rumped Warbler - 1 singing
Yellow - 5 song/notes
Nashville - 2 notes
Tennessee - 2 singing
Wilson's - 1 singing
Black & White Warbler 1

Great Blue Heron 2- one stood showing its prize in beak on the edge of the pond with a 7 or 8 inch catfish - the unfortunate creature was wiggling to get away and looked too big to swallow
Spotted Sandpiper - 2
Hairy Woodpecker - 1FOSB
Great-crested Flycatcher - 6 singing numbers increased
Western Kingbird -1 singing high in its tower
Indigo Bunting - 4 singing
Swainson's Thrush - 2 numbers seem low for this time of year
Red-eyed Vireo - 7 singing - numbers increasing
Yellow-throated Vireo- 2 singing
White-throated Sparrow 1 singing
Fish Crow- 1 calling

Peter Grund said he heard 4 or 5 Tennessee warblers on Indiana Street outside the park and that type of activity usually is a sign of peak season is close.

Subject: Galena, KS Blackburnian Warbler 5-6-19
Good morning!

Decent temps mean I usually have a window open. This morning, I woke up to
the sound of a Blackburnian Warbler singing (which may be another reason I
open windows this time of year). The song was what I've seen referred to as
it's courtship song or primary song. I went straight for the binocs and
went out the back door to find it. Didn't actually need them because it was
in the oak tree by my house, fairly low, on a branch with no leaves.
Probably the best looks I've ever had of one. And of course when I went
back in for the camera, it moved to a neighbor's tree. I did get a
recording of it singing, though. Not out-of-the-ordinary for here this time
of year, but always a treat.

Subject: Baker Wetlands Survey
Roger Boyd, Kylee Sharp, Nick Pumphrey, Marcia Hawk, and Dan Larson
surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence Kansas on the 5th of May, 2019. It was an
absolutely beautiful day. Temps 50-70 F, no wind until slight breeze at end.
We did hope to get 100 species knowing it would be tougher this year as
migration seems slower this year. But it is definitely in close to full
swing as many new species arrived for this survey.We ended up with 95
species.
The 3 Ring-necked Ducks are still lingering. It was great to find the 2
Virginia Rails, and the 9 Soras. Shorebirds were lacking as the water is
still a bit high. We had Spotted Sandpipers and Lesser Yellowlegs.Along
with the many Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets the heron species were
thrillling in that we found a Least Bittern and Black-crowned Night Heron.
Still three Forester's Tern's around.
There were a number of flycatcher species found. There was a Willow
Flycatcher and a couple of Least Flycatchers. Seven Eastern Phoebes were
flagged by ebird. They were spread out over the whole area. We also had
several Great-crested Flycatchers and an Eastern Kingbird.
Among the Red-eyed and Warbling Vireos, 4 Bell's and 2 Yellow-throated
Vireos were heard and/or seen. There were 4 Cliff Swallows in flight at
the Haskell bridge over the Wakarusa River.
The two Bobolinks just north and east of the Discovery Center in a field
with mainly sweet clover were a special thrill.
We had a fair number of warblers. The Summer Tanagers and Rose-breasted
Grosbeaks were around singing and displaying their special beauty. It was
good to see and hear that Indigo Buntings and Dickcissels were back in
force.
Previous surveys for this time of year are below.

2018 - 125

2017 - 123

2016 - 97

2015 - 96

2014 - 70

2013 - 80

It was a beautiful early morning along the Kaw. I walked with Bill Staples and met Jon King, who agreed it was a slow day. First spring walk that I did not hear White-throated Sparrow - two days ago I was hearing their full songs all across the park. I expect that many of them and Harris Sparrows exited northward. Also, the wooded area near the pond across the RR tracks - which had many WT & Harris Sparrows and warblers was quiet this morning.

Jon King observed a Bell's Vireo near the north stream river trail - its uncommon in Burcham because of lack of right habitat

Warblers
Yellow-rumped Warbler - 1 singing
Yellow - 1
Nashville - 2 singing
Yellow-throated - 1 singing
Northern Waterthrush - 1 singing
Wilson's - 1FOS
Prothonotary - 1 singing in a small tree next to the boathouse

Western Kingbird - 1FOS - usually location on the electrical tower near south end of the park
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher - 1
Swainson's Thrush- 1 seem to be late this year
Yellow-throated Vireo - 1 singing close to
Rose-breasted Grosbeak - 1 singing
Gray Catbird - 2 singing - first songs I have hears

Yesterday I birded the wooded northeast side of the Wetlands - it was not very active when I walked but I got a few FOS species - American Redstart, Chat 2, White-eyed Vireo, Summer Tanager 2, Dickciseel - 6; Red-shouldered Hawk 2

Subject: Geary County Nightjars and Tanagers
Jaye and I took advantage of a beautiful evening to go to Ft Riley and walk
part of a somewhat muddy Pet Cemetary Trail (Geary County). Immediately
out of the car we heard a first of season Scarlet Tanager calling/scolding
away. We walked the south half of the trail and heard multiple Scarlet
Tanagers. At one point we had a Scarlet singing on one side of a trail and a
Summer scolding on the other side of the trail. We've heard Summers
around for the past ten days. Warbler activity was somewhat limited BUT a
first of season Common Nighthawk flew over issuing a couple of "peent"
calls. The die was cast for the rest of the evening!

As we hadn't been able to track down a Common Poorwill yet, and it was so
clear and calm, we headed down to Geary State Lake. Parking on the north
entrance we immediately had several Poorwills calling and shortly thereafter
a cacophany of Chuck-will's-widows fired up and not much later coyotes
joined in from every hillside around. That meant there was only one thing left
to do - a quick stop at the Lyon Creek Rd/Creek bridge on the way back in to
town. Yup, Eastern Whip-poor-wills were calling from the timbered hillsides
as well as even more Chuck-will's-widows. Jaye thought she heard a couple
of Poorwills from way up on the hill tops but they were too far away for me to
pull them in. Oh, yes - there were numerous coyotes here as well!

A good evening to be out birding anywhere!

to Nelson Island along with a couple of prothonatory warblers and a Scarlet
tanager along the north trail. Along the streamway to the South notables
were Golden winged, chestnut sided , blackburnian, and magnolia warblers.

Subject: Franklin County Shorebirds
Between light showers, it seemed that almost every stop had birds in
Franklin County. And I had over 100 species. Individual checklists can be
found by exploring recent visits in Franklin County on eBird. The best
location by far was the edge of flooded fields along the tar north of
Rantoul. It held 10 shorebird species (scanned three different times with
walks in between) and a flock of peeps that flew away unidentified. This
ebird list has the location within in.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55734183

The road was quite busy and I found myself parking at the minimum
maintenance road (or north edge) and walking back and forth across the
sides of the road to scope. I prefer dirt roads rather than playing frogger
in real life.

Good Birding,

Great birding this morning at Greenwood Cemetery near Chanute. Star of the

good numbers of other migrants.

Got word of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at Sante Fe Lake in Chanute and

Both were new county birds for me and both species will be new to the

Subject: Some Schermerhorn Park updates, 5-3-19
I was outside for a bit over lunch and first heard, then briefly saw a
Black-throated Green Warbler in Schermerhorn Park, along the road going up
to the SEK Nature Center. This male is quite vocal.
Also in the park/Galena this week:
Return of Eastern Wood-pewees, Common Nighthawks, female Ruby-throated
Hummingbirds, (the past couple of weeks have only been males.), Baltimore
Orioles in good numbers, more Summer Tanagers
We’ve got several Nashville Warblers and Black-and-white Warblers in the
park that are very vocal to go along with many Yellow-rumpeds.
Also seen briefly, but heard many times is a Kentucky Warbler. It’s
generally been hanging out in the same area where a trail head is located
on the nature center hill. Northern Waterthrush was seen well along the
cave stream in the north part of the park, too.

I’ve had good looks at a Yellow-throated Vireo and Warbling Vireo this past
week. A Common Yellowthroat can be heard across Shoal Creek toward the east
end of the Shoal Creek Wildlife Area property. After heavy rains earlier
this week, the creek is down enough that people can drive down the gravel
bar in the park again.

I’m sure I’m forgetting other noteables, but it’s been pretty birdy
everyday, so if you can get out - do it!

Good May birding to you all!

It was cloud and quite chilly along thee Kaw early this morning. There was a din of Baltimore Oriole, House wren, Carolina Wren, and Warbling Vireo song, notes, and scolding. But I heard little warbler song and saw little movement. I did not stay ought long so it may have gotten busier after I quit. I listed 46 species.

Warblers
Yellow-rumped 13- still some singing males
Northern Waterthrush- 4 just notes
Nashville - 2 singing
Tennessee - 1 singing
Yellow - 1 singing

Wood Duck - 1 I have seen & heard fewer this year
Spotted Sandpiper - 3 calling
GH Horned Owl - 2 FOS - Peter Grund directed me to them & he and Molly Zahn have seen them several times. I got a very good look at the fledgling who stared down at me curiously from 30 or 40 feet above
Eastern Kingbird - 4 may have been more heard a lot of twittering. They just returned along the river trail unless I have been missing them
Great-crested Flycatcher 2 singing
Red-eyed Vireo - 1 singing
Indigo Bunting - 1 second I have listed in Burcham this year - might have been not quite fully in spring plumage
White-throated 7 less song today
Harris - 2 - singing with closing buzz - first time heard this season

High Folks,

Finally, some sun today. There were a lot of warblers in OP today. All over the Park. I would guess about 200. But, there was a problem, about 99 percent were Yellow-rumped. A few were Orange-crowned, less Nashville’s, a few Black and white. A Redstart was seen, I heard a Ovenbird. I also, videoed a warbler, so far I can’t ID.

There were a few other good finds. A adult male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. A immature male Summer Tanager. A Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. Swanson’s Thrush and Hermit Thrush. I wonder what I have forgotten.

Happy Birding,

As for a female Hooded Oriole (without a male accompanying her), wouldn't she be difficult to distinguish from a female Baltimore Oriole?

Subject: Quivira Big Salt Marsh / 1 May
I spent 5 hours at the very birdy Big Salt Marsh at Quivira NWR today, 1
May. A light north wind and very cool temps probably helped produce the
nice round total of 130 species. I wouldn't call it a fallout exactly, but
the number of passerines was impressive. I easily saw several thousand
sparrows for the day in Stafford and Pawnee counties.



Birds of note were: Am. Bittern 1, Sora 1, Virginia Rail 1, Dunlin 1,
Sanderling 3, Pectoral Sandpiper 2, White-rumped Sandpiper 3, Marbled Godwit
1, Hudsonian Godwit 2, Stilt Sandpiper 20, Forster's Tern 70, Barred Owl 1,
White-winged Dove 1, Eastern Kingbird 2, Sedge Wren 2, Black-headed
Grosbeak 1 female.



I'm certain I've never seen so many Forster's Terns at Quivira at one time;
forty of these were flying together. (And yes, I know there are some other
species of terns in the world.) I had all the common ducks one would expect
in early May including a pair of Greater Scaup. There were 20 species of
shorebirds with a few surprising misses, i.e. any plovers other than Snowy
and Killdeer.



We've all seen shorebirds go a little nuts when a Peregrine appears, but
today a huge number of avocets and stilts and many other species made an
incredible racket as they flew overhead. I expected a Peregrine but instead
saw an adult Bald Eagle that actually seemed to be hunting avocets. Very
strange.



Earlier in the day I saw two good birds at Larned, a winter-plumage
Bonaparte's Gull at the feed lot and a Black-bellied Whistling-Duck at the
sandpit on E K-19. The BBWD was along the shore across the way, but flew
straight toward me and did it's crazy call about 10' away as if to say "Come
at me, Bro!!" I have know idea where all the other BBWDs are hanging out
around Larned and Ellinwood, because seeing one appears to require nothing
but pure luck.

I was just north of Winfield and Franklin's Gulls were flying over by the

Orange-crowned Warblers.

There was no singing going on so that didn't help at all.

Subject: Great Crested Flycatcher
Was out walking with a group at Kill Creek Park in Johnson County this
morning, Wednesday May 1, and heard the unmistakable sound of a Great
Crested Flycatcher. He cooperated by flying to a branch high overhead so we
could see his yellowish belly clearly.



We also experienced some unusual (to me) behavior from an American Bittern.
I saw him fly overhead and land off in the woods somewhere near the creek.
I assumed he was going to visit a favorite fishing spot. But soon I spotted
him about 700 feet ahead along the cement sidewalk pathway, standing about
two feet off the path in mowed grass, in plain sight. He was doing his
head-in-the-air-so-you-can't-see-me pose, but stuck out very pretty
obviously. There were a lot of worms lying on the path from our incredible
rains, and tiny frogs jumping around too, so perhaps the eating was better
by the paths. At the stream, the water was very turbid, swollen and fast
moving, not ideal conditions for seeing a fish meal.

Subject: Burcham: Wednesday Morning
Was cloudy but pleasant along the Kaw earl this morning. There were quite a few warblers and other species in the large trees near the pavilion in the center of the park. It seemed like the busiest, spot but the birds were act high in the trees and the lighting was poor. But I expect a good numbers of birds came in. Lots of partial songs I had troube with. I listed 58 species.

Sedge Wren - 1 singing FOS - at the south end of Burcham in the wet high grass wood edge - popped out in the open close to me to sing
Marsh Wren - 1 singing FOS- in the so-called wetland across the track south edge - it sang standing on the Wetland Migration sign
These two are uncommon birds for Burcham and I never had both the same day there- in both places I was listening to Northern Waterthrushes blast their songs and the two popped up close to me and sang - giving great looks

Warblers
Black & White - 4 - 3 singing
Prothonotary (m) north side of park - Molly Zahn saw a female in the same part of the park
Tennessee - 1
Yellow-throated - 1 a few notes head of river trail
Northern Parula - 3 2 singing & a female
Orange-crwoned- 3 1 singing
Palm Warbler - 2 working low vines on trees and sidwalk
Northern Waterthrush - 5 singing
Yellow -rumped - 19 - several males singing
Yellow 4 singing
Nashville - 5 singing - I heard many partial warbler songs likely these last 3 species

Green Heron - 1FOS Alice Newton Pond (Molly Z saw a pair there last week)
Yellow-throated Vireo - 1 singing in center of the park
Red-eyed Vireo - 2 singing
Swainson's Thrush - 3

Subject: Request for assistance – song recordings of migrating Mourning Warblers
It is year 5 of this project and I am once again writing to request your help and participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs. Our lab is trying to determine what role song can play in understanding migratory connectivity in this species. We are interested in whether different song populations of the Mourning Warbler (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective breeding areas. Here is a link to a map with previous years’ results based on recordings from over 100 birders.

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/mapping-songs-with-google-maps.html

All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some luck. Videos with recordings are also helpful. The web page link below describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail. Please send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound Lab (jpitocch AT anselm.edu).

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/

There is also a link to a recent national Audubon Society story on this research.

Hi Folks,

Tons of rain in Oak Park on the last day of April. Although, I was in Oak Park many hours Tuesday, I only was only on the Westside of Oak Park. I was surprised how many birds were in the park. Part of the reason was the wind was from the North and migrating birds don’t like to fly into the wind. A lot of sparrows, many were singing, when it wasn’t raining hard. I did see 2 new warbler species, for this spring, Black and White (m) and Common Yellowthroat (m). Also a few Spotted Towhee’s. Maybe, tomorrow won’t have as much rain, although they say there could be some more.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

Terry Swope and I ventured out in the rain storms this morning. On 207th between Pflumm and Lackman we found 6 male Bobolinks searching the sod farms. At Heritage Park we found an Eastern Kingbird struggling with a huge earthworm and we were able to see the orange crown stripe. Then at Shawnee Mission Park we came across a flock of Forster’s Terns, all the swallows, a Common Loon, and 24 Willets on the dam just like last week.
We got wet every time we dropped the windows but such great birding.

I made a mad dash through Franklin County this evening and was lucky enough
to find 2 county records. A single American Avocet was mixed in a large
flock of dowitchers just north of Ottawa. Three Bairds sandpipers flew over
ponds one mile west of 59 south of Ottawa. I unintentionally drew attention
from the house nearby; they didn’t seem impressed when I described the
birds flying over. A single Cattle Egret between the two locations was a
nice surprise. Locations on eBird checklists.

streets). With a scope, both boxes can be seen from a parking area at 2nd
and Water streets. City Hall is two blocks north and Garvey is 2 blocks
south. The City Hall box faces south, the Garvey box faces north. I
checked these a month or so ago and saw no activity at the boxes and could
find no Peregrines in the downtown area. But a bird was there today, and it
is nesting season. I'll check with my scope tomorrow and report if I find
anything.

After last nights storm and 0.78 inches of much needed rain, a first-year male Baltimore oriole showed up to an empty jelly feeder. Diane quickly refilled the tray but we did not seed the bird again. Also this morning, we had our first gray catbird for the year at our suet feeder. It also checked out our serviceberry tree which is going to be loaded with fruit. This afternoon we spotted an adult male Baltimore oriole in our trees. We went inside so it could come to the jelly feeder located on our deck. A while later Diane spotted two adult males in our smoke-tree and it wasn't long before we were seeing double. Four breeding plumage male Baltimore orioles in our smoke-tree at one time is a first for our yard. Wow!

Subject: Oak Park, Wichita - warblers
This early morning in Oak Park, (29 April): an ovenbird popped up along the edge of the woods near the disc golf course. As soon as I took my binoculars away from it, I noticed a smaller bird right next to it in the same shrub. This turned out to be a worm-eating warbler! I don't usually go early in the morning and so I don't get to check the areas nearest the disc golf course, but this morning that is where the birds were. Honestly, they were everywhere, though.

Most of the warblers streaming through were orange-crowned, but I saw one Nashville and found a singing American redstart, so I'm guessing there could be a few other species lurking around. I also had first of season red-headed woodpeckers and lots of Swainson's thrushes and least flycatchers. Lincoln's sparrows, clay-colored sparrows, and red-eyed vireos were present in large numbers, too. Here's the full checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55549097 It was difficult to leave to get to work!

Yellow-throated Vireo - 1 singing
Gray Catbird - 1FOS silent
Baltimore Oriole - 15 singing & notes (many came in likely last night)
Indigo Bunting - 1FOS singing

Sparrow- I had two flocks of sparrows that scurried into dense bush when I approached & also had many partial looks in many thickets - I think many sparrows came in & I saw or heard a few
White-throated - 10+ heard song & there are like many -
Clay-colored - 4FOS - I singing
White-crowned Sparrow - 2+ FOS 1 singing
Harris Sparrow - 1FOS
Lincolns Sparrow - 2
Chipping - 10+
American Goldfinch - a major noisy congregation in woods on NE side before pond - this was active with other birds but they were hard to hear because of the AG chatter.

This am. I had 2 chippers. One figured out how to go to tube feeder inside a wire cage. It was feeding the one on the outside. Food must have been good, as #2 figured out how to go through wire cage also.

Subject: ksbirds.org website IS working
A lovely Friday afternoon to everyone!

I have had some emails, phone calls and texts from people who say that the
ksbirds website is down. It is not down. The KSBIRDS.ORG webside is up and
fully operational!

There is some sort of weird hiccup that if you use some search engines and
enter Kansas Ornithological Society or kansas birds or anything like that,
then click on the link, it gives you the dreaded "404 - Page not found"
error. I do not know why it is doing that, but I'm working on it. The URL
address that it shows is correct. In fact if you get that error, just
click on the web address field and use it - the page opens.

Or here's an even simpler solution. Don't use your search engine - just
remember KSBIRDS.ORG - 11 characters - that's easy to remember! Enter that
and away you go!!

It really started when a Sora hiked out into open water for a really good

Semipalmated Plover. And a last minute flyover by a Cliff Swallow. Roger
Boyd, Mark Pheasant, Judy Billings, Sue Newland and Dan Larson surveyed
Baker Wetlands Lawrence, Kansas on definitely the best survey day we have
had with 50 to 60 degree temeperatures and the truly great part very little
wind this being the 24th day of April 2019. We found 81 species.We had 6
duck species with lingering Bufflehead and Ring-necked Ducks. A couple of
turkeys were spotted after being missing on some previous surveys. We had
five sandpiper species. Three Forester Terns were a real treat.A Warbling
Vireo was heard, this being the second survey we have heard one..All six
swallow species were seen.After having a high number of Ruby-crowned
Kinglets on the last survey it seemed like Blue-gray Gnatcatchers had taken
their place this survey.Three Clay-colored Sparrows gave us great views and
one decided to buzz as we left them. We did have ebird high count issues
with four species, kind of nice to have those issues.It was a great day to
be out. Here are some previous surveys near this date.

2018= 110,2017 =90, 2016 = 86, 2016 = 86, 2015 = 75

It was pretty quiet however - listed 26 species in an hour walk. Hearing mostly Warbling Vireos & Carolina Wrens blasting songs.

Yellow-throated Warbler - 1 singing loudly high up next to the north stream on river trail. Possibly a second sang a few notes from wood edge. On my return walk, one was singing intermittently in the small trees along the sidewalk just north of the stream. It flew by a few feet in front of me.
Northern Parula - 1 singing

Good afternoon,
I spent some time birding Schermerhorn Park before work and ended up with
43 species.
New arrivals in the park today: Great Crested Flycatcher, Swainson's
Thrush, Pine Siskin (first I've seen in 2019), Orchard Oriole (not a
typical visitor to this park), Black-and-white Warbler, Tennessee Warbler,
and Yellow Warbler.
New yesterday and in the past week: Nashville Warbler, Summer Tanager,

Warbler.

It's rather hard for me to sit in the office this time of year!

Subject: Perry Lake birds
Sue Newland and I birded Lake Perry today in Jefferson County. Upper
Ferguson Marsh continues to have a great variety of birds. Today there
were Hudsonian godwits, American avocets, Bonaparte's and Franklin's gulls,
FOY catbird, FOY marsh wren, FOY common yellowthroat, FOY indigo bunting,
and more.

We explored some marshes where I had never birded before including Hayward
Marsh and Reichart Marsh (FOY yellow warbler, solitary sandpiper and least
sandpiper), and we also made stops at West River Marsh and Northwest Marsh
(FOY eared grebe). Most of these marshes were quite flooded, something we
haven't seen at Lake Perry for a long time. The water level is very high
at Lake Perry and in the Delaware River that feeds into Lake Perry. The
marshes are already pretty good for shorebirds; if the water level would go
down just a little it would be shorebird heaven.

Hi Kat,
Today I saw my first pair of western kingbirds this season here in Hays (in same location they frequent every year). No nest building indicated, just seem to be looking around from their usual perches on the utility pole and wires. I always look forward to their return.

For about 2 minutes I had a White Wing Dove under my tube feeder filled with black sunflower seed. It was near a Morning Dove and European Starling, so it was easy to determine the size. The white wing edge was easy to see as it walked around. The large white area in the wing showed when it jumped up into a cinder block.

Hi Folks,

I spent a few hours in Oak Park today (monday). Pretty quiet, so far. I did see a few Orange-crowned Warblers and single Yellow-rumped Warbler. A few Blue-gray Gnatcatcher and a few Barred Owls. Oh, I almost forgot. The very old Cooper’s Hawk male, made it through the winter, although I didn’t see it’s new from last year, yellow eyed female mate. Having yellow eyes, means she is very young, 1 to 3 years. Older Cooper’s hawk’s have red eyes.

Happy Birding,

Chris,

There are March records, most unsubstantiated, but should be expected around 25 April and certainly the last week in most years within the State. I suspect last two weeks of April are when we should really look for them. 17 April from Slate Creek Wetlands is an early date for us in south-central KS.

Rob, that is way cool.

Chris

This would be considered early for White-rumps as the bulk are moving through more around mid-May into June. However, we have records of this species at Cheyenne Bottoms arriving in mid-April with the average first of the season observation date being around April 27th.

On a side note, I was with a master’s student from South Carolina who had placed 25 GPS units on Hudsonian Godwits. Two are currently in Nebraska, one was near Hutchinson but heading to the west and another was here at Cheyenne Bottoms. The bird here at Cheyenne Bottoms left Chile 6 days ago a flew non stop to Cheyenne Bottoms. The majority of birds have not left Chile yet.

The good folks at the KDWPT have been draining Pool #5 in order to provide shorebird habitat for the Wings & Wetlands Festival on the first weekend of May. This process has produced some excellent habitat, especially for plovers. However, the pool is drying down too fast so they plan to start putting more water back into this pool. They have also been draining down Pool 4B and this has produced good habitat for godwits and dowitchers.

Subject: Cooper's Hawk soaring
Just saw my third observation of Cooper's Hawk in my neighborhood in a two week period, fairly uncommon for here. What was even more unusual was his mode of travel. He was very high in the sky, moving from West to east with the clouds, and doing so by soaring in big fast circles, buteo style. Is this very common for this species?

Subject: Burcham Monday
Went for a fairly brief walk along the Kaw this morning and listed 33 species.

Northern Parula - 4 singing
Yellow-rumped Warbler - 2 quick look

Cooper's Hawk - 1 FOSB north side of park flyover
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher - 1 FOS singing along river trail
Brown Thrasher - 2 singing (missed yesterday)
Red-headed Woodpecker - 1 FOS calling from woods near stream on north side of the park
Purple Finch - FOS 1 on river in trail small tree along sidewalk north of the bridge - I have rarely this bird in Burcham
Savannah Sparrow - FOS 3+ heard their little call notes before in Burcham but not song - they were singing along the RR Tracks this morning where I have seen them in the past. (song stumped me)
Brown-headed Cowbird - 16

On Indiana Street outside park
House Wren - 1 blasting its song
Baltimore Oriole - I believe doing a harsh call note
