Subject: Nature Conservancy's Birding Challenge
All Nature Conservancy programs have been invited to participate in a cross-organization "Birding Challenge." The goal is to count as many species of birds, in one day, on lands and waters that The Nature Conservancy had a role in protecting. Kansas has accepted this challenge and it will take place on Saturday, May 13, which is also International Migratory Bird Day.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the bird count at various preserve locations. We have organized surveys at some of our protect lands and for those sites where we have no organized survey, I am hoping that some of you birders will bird those sites and send me your checklist. This event should be a fun and exciting opportunity to work together and recognize the importance of our work in Kansas and see how we stack up against other states. The categories we will be competing in are: 1. Single preserve or protected area with the highest number of species 2. The state with the highest number of species 3. The state with the highest percentage of birds seen on the official state bird list
The protected lands with organized surveys in which will need skilled birders
* Smoky Valley Ranch<https://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/kansas/placesweprotect/smoky-valley-ranch.xml>, south of Oakley
* Public Hiking Trails, Konza Prairie<https://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/kansas/placesweprotect/konza-prairie.xml>, south of Manhattan
* Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve<https://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/kansas/placesweprotect/tallgrass-prairie-national-preserve.xml>, north of Strong City
* Flint Hills Tallgrass Prairie Preserve east of Cassoday
* Dingus Natural Area, near Mound City
THE PROTECTED LANDS WE HOPE A BIRDER WILL SURVEY FOR US AND SEND ME THE RESULTS
* Anderson County Prairies<https://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/kansas/placesweprotect/anderson-county-prairies.xml>, near Garnett
* Cherokee County Wetlands, near Chetopa
* Big Basin Prairie Preserve, near Minneola
* Jamestown Wildlife Area, near Jamestown
* McPherson Valley Wetlands Wildlife Area, near McPherson
* Marais des Cygnes NWR, near Mound City
*
* Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
* For more information, or to RSVP, Please indicate your preference of a preserve location.

Subject: Avian Conservationist of the Year Award
The Kansas Ornithological Society's is still looking for nominations for the Avian Conservationist of the Year Award. The Award is given to an individual for making significant contributions to bird conservation and/or education. Nominations should be made for outstanding work in bird conservation, through the management or preservation of habitats, education or research. A nominee may be any professional, volunteer, educator or other person that has accomplished significant contributions in any of the areas listed. The accomplishment should reflect a long-time commitment to bird conservation and/or education within the State of Kansas. This award will be presented during the fall annual meeting or if the awardee cannot attend, arrangements will be made to have the award delivered.

I have heard through the grapevine that a couple of my friends had nominations ready for last year, but just got too busy to send those in. The result is we didn't give the award last year. So if you have nominations left over or are willing to write a new one, please send them to me before the July 1st deadline.

My nephew who originally found the birds just reported that the Whooping
Cranes are on the same field as the past two days. This is on the NE corner
of Highway 183 and River road 16 miles north of Hays. They are visible both
from the county road and the highway.

Late this afternoon I decided to check to see if the Yellow-crowned Night-Herons were back in their usual SE Wichita neighborhood. Four flew into the trees along Elpyco just north of Kinkaid, appearing to have come from Gypsum creek just to the east.

Subject: EABL eggs in March
The other day I mentioned bluebird eggs in late March
here in Cherokee County. I incorrectly thought that they
were early.
In my defense, your honor, I was thinking February!
"Bluebird Bob" in Pittsburg corrected me. There are plenty
of eastern bluebird nests and eggs in late March.
I wouldn't have to check my records in the garage to know
that is correct.
I am surprized that Bob was the only person to correct me.
Good birding,
Larry, in Joplin, MO.

Subject: Sighting & Question from Bourbon Co.
Swallows are back, coursing over the family watershed.

Yesterday morning, I was outside at about 5am and heard an owl shrieking
above me in flight and then moments later down the in the field. I don't
know if this was a Barn Owl or a juvenile Barred Owl. I referenced the
vocalizations from the Sibley app on my phone and its just a bit hard to
say with certainty which it is. Is this the time of year for a juvenile
Barred Owl to be out and about?

Best,

Subject: Eastern Screech Owl....
Had a relative post on Facebook that he had a couple "hoot" owls in his
tree.

Upon investigation it appeared that in the tree were two Eastern Screech
Owls. One grey and one red individual. The red individual was at most
about half the size of the grey. According to the relative the smaller
individual had been on the same branch for about a week. Birds of Kansas
has fledgling dates much later than this. Is it possible this is an early
fledgling?

Here is a link to eBird with a photo of the pair...

Subject: Whooping Cranes Ellis County - put to bed?
My nephew contacted me this afternoon to let me know that the Whooping
Cranes were back in the same field. I went out and watched the four adult
birds until they took off and headed north. I headed north on the highway
parallel to them, but quickly lost sight of them due to a deep cut through
the river bluffs. On top, I pulled out at the first opportunity and could
not locate them. I went back and found that they had landed at a pond about
mile north of their former feeding location. Eric Hough was stopped
watching them. The pond is right at the base of the river bluffs. They
seemed to be settling in for the night, I had errands to run, so I returned
to Hays. With the north wind, I expect that these birds will be at the same
location in the morning.

Malcolm Gold's recent post on the Burroughs trip to Marais des Cygnes caused me to make the trip to Linn county that I've been putting off all month. However, I decided to hit Bourbon county first, where the birding turned out to be pretty good and consumed most of the morning. I started at Bourbon SFL with typical waterfowl-free results. Brown Thrashers have really moved into that area. I moved on to the Bronson sewer ponds. On the way I had a nice flock of American Golden-Plovers on a recent burn in Allen county. The sewer ponds turned out to be quite productive, with a few duck and shorebird species, including 16 Pectoral Sandpipers, 6 Greater and 1 Lesser Yellowlegs and 6 Wilson's Snipe. One Bonaparte's Gull was also present. Most of the shorebirds flew back and forth across the road into Allen county for a listing two-fer. At Elm Creek Lake there was a flock of 22 American Golden-Plovers and several ducks. Lake Fort Scott had a large raft of ducks being harassed by a pair of Bald Eagles. Fish Crows were noted at a few Bourbon County locations. At Marais des Cygnes and Linn County Park things were pretty much as Malcolm described. I counted 24 American Golden-Plovers at unit F. At Linn County Park I counted 4 Common Loons (one in breeding plumage) and 7 Horned Grebes.

3/27/2017
I dipped on the Williamson's sapsucker while checking the Otoe Area of Wilson Lake (Russell County) this afternoon. I slowly checked the pines all around the wastewater ponds near the Cedar Trail and only found a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. I did have two breeding plumage Common Loons and 7+ Horned Grebes at this side of the lake, and a Rock Wren singing at the pullout at the southwest side of the bridge over the lake across from Otoe Area.

3/27/2017
The GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW continues near Black Wolf (Ellsworth County) as of 3:30pm today. It was with flock of Harris's Sparrows at wood/trash pile with large dirt pile at southeast corner of the corral near the house. The bird was foraging on south side of pile. This is a different wood pile than the eBird hotspot location (at least the location that comes up in iPhone map that's by the creek); this pile is almost 0.5 mile north of that. Not sure if the flock has moved here or has always been at this pile and I missed that fact in previous posts (?). Down at the creek south of this there were several Lincoln's and Song Sparrows present.

Subject: Miscellaneous sightings
I had a report from a fellow Topekan of a bald eagle nest near Council
Grove Lake in Morris County. Since there is only one other documented
eagle nest in that county (to my knowledge) I drove there this morning to
take a look. I found the nest on the east side of Hwy 177 opposite the Dam
Road entrance to Council Grove Reservoir. The nest is in an isolated
tree. An adult and one eaglet were observed on the nest and another adult
was flying overhead.

I also birded the Council Grove Wildlife Area of Munkers Creek and found
many expected species, but of note for me was a winter wren and a barred
owl.

On my way home to Topeka, I drove around Lake Wabaunsee. Lots of
bufflehead and lesser scaup were present, but the best bird was a common
loon, a species not commonly reported for that county for lack of lakes.

Have a good, birdy day,

Subject: Elk and Greenwood counties
KS Birders,
I spent some time yesterday in Elk and Greenwood counties, mostly around
Severy, Howard and Moline. The best bird was probably a winter adult
Bonaparte's gull on the Howard WTP, not currently on the county list. There
was a Ring-billed gull on the wetlands just north of there, which flew over
to the WTP while I was watching, and made for good comparisons. A Purple
martin was also flying over the WTP. Lots of good ducks there also.
At Moline south city lake there was a Barn swallow sitting on a wire and
somebody doing target practice (I presume) behind the hill so I didn't stay
long. A Bald Eagle flew over the north city lake and was the only bird seen
there except a couple dozen coots.
The highlight was several flocks of American Golden Plovers. I first
encountered 12 in a small burn north of Severy lake. Then in a large
burned-over field a couple miles north of US400 just before the Butler Co
line there were probably 80 in the field. Another pasture in Butler,
northwest of Baumont had around 70 but they were pretty far away.

Good birding,

Subject: Seasonality of Kansas Sparrows
Good evening KSBIRDers!

Nice to see some rain in at least part of the state - wishing the folks in Clark
and Meade county could have had a little more this weekend, but hopefully
the short term patterns are changing.

For many reasons, I find birders become most confused by three groups of
birds: shorebirds, gulls and sparrows. Of course, those three groups account
for nearly 20% of the total Kansas bird list. I think many birders, especially
beginning birders tend to focus on colors so brightly colored species like
waterfowl and warblers become somewhat easier to identify. Key
identification points of shorebirds, gulls and sparrows come down to more
subtle features that even intermediate and advanced birders can struggle
with at times!

I am particularly fond of sparrows for many reasons. The past few weeks I
have received numerous questions from birders about sparrows. Some folks
have ended up going down a wormhole trying to ID a sparrow that would be
quite out of range in space or time. So I have taken a stab at trying to create
a quick reference chart of the Kansas sparrows. I've included status and
expected location based on Birds of Kansas (BOK) and input from some
anonymous reviewers. Then I've used bar charts to try to indicate what
months they might be expected to be seen in Kansas.

In those bar charts, the darker the bar the more abundant they will be. If the
bar is quite dark you should expect to see that species on most birding trips
in that month(s). The lighter colored the bar the less abundant/common they
are. If there is no bar, but asterisks, it means they have been recorded in that
time frame, but not common at all.

Kansas is a big state and we have a lot of sparrow species. Experienced
birders will probably want to nit pick some of the spcies-status-location-
seasonal distribution. Feel free to argue with me, off line, if you wish, but I
didn't make this chart for you. You already know most or all of this stuff! I
made it for the beginners, the intermediate level birders, the folks who
struggle to ID sparrows. If you want a more inclusive discussion of the
possible vagrants of any of these, PLEASE read the individual sparrow
accounts in BOK. There is far more detail there than could be included in this
chart. Some of you may also think that a certain bar should be one shade of
gray darker than it is - that's fine - let me know. Just please understand that
staring at these charts into the wee hours of the night sometimes makes it
hard to know which shade of gray I was actually using!!!

Okay, now with all the disclaimers out of the way, the chart can be found at:

http://birdsofkansas.com/Sparrow_Seasonal_Distribution.pdf

And now if you will excuse me, I'm going back to separating probable and
confirmed breeding records for the species county dot maps and county
checklists.

Subject: Chickadees and more
Last weekend I saw chickadees checking out another nest box with a 1 1/8
hole. I saw them carry nesting material (moss) into the box. I checked
said box a few days later and it only had one bit of moss although i saw
them go in the box more times. I also checked the box that they were
excavating. It had no nesting material. I just saw the chickadees at
the nest box and when chickie was about to enter the box, a male
bluebird swooped down and landed on the box. Interesting seeing the
competition among species.

While trying to trap a house sparrow in a box, I ended up catching a
male downy. Doesn't look like any excavation was happening at this box.

Saw the female flicker sticking head out of a flicker nest box. Normally
i've just seen males in the boxes.

I've also trapped a few starlings that are beginning to try to start
nest building.

The Burroughs Field-Trip had 10 people checking around Marais des Cygnes
National Wildlife Refuge on March 25th in Linn County.

La Cygne Lake had numerous COMMON LOONS and HORNED GREBES while sparrows
and other year-round residents were found in a few other locations. Unit F
provided the most diversity with a couple of BREWER'S BLACKBIRDS, couple of
AMERICAN PIPITS, 17 AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVERS, a pink Ring-billed Gull, and a
LeConte's Sparrow that Judy picked out of the flock of Savannah Sparrows.
Piming and Bob Yang even got pictures of the LeConte's Sparrow that was
along the edge of the plowed field.

An EASTERN TOWHEE and WINTER WREN sang along a bridge over North Sugar
Creek but never showed themselves, but a FOY LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH did. We
tallied 89 species by early afternoon.

On the birders route back to Johnson County Mike Stoakes, Sherry Leonardo,
and myself found 7 additional species including FOY Barn and Cliff Swallows
at Paola WTP and a Yellow-Headed Blackbird south of La Cygne. While the
drizzle it was a chilly start the day but fortunately we avoided rain
afterwards and had a calm day together with friends.

Subject: Quivira Whooping Cranes
Hi Folks,

Yes, 11 Whooping Cranes were still at Quivira Big Salt Marsh after sunset. They were in same general area they were the whole afternoon today. The area was on the Northside of 170th street in the shallow lake. They spent most of the afternoon sleeping about a mile to the north of 170th street. There was a strong North wind. All of the other cars watching most of the afternoon left just before sunset. I stayed until sunset because I have nice memories of Whoopers doing things around sunset and I was nicely rewarded. About sunset the Whoopers started chasing each other around, doing mating type things like jumping and running with there wings up. About this time off in the distance, coyotes started whining in the distance and the Whoopers stopped to listen closely. The Whoopers all moved out into the lake towards the distant road. They also moved farther to the West out in the lake. The best part was they suddenly started “Whooping”. It was very loud and many were doing it. It was so noisy, it startled me. This is only the second time I’ve heard them do it, both times it was near sunset. I was able to record some of it. I’m sure glad I waited. Who knows when they will leave, but I doubt they will go until sunrise. There was still a North wind when I left about 8, I don’t think they will go North until the North wind stops. If you are going to try for them in the morning, I would get there early, like sunrise.

Happy Birding,

After 15 minutes or so I spotted the WISA in a tall pine at the southeast
corner of the sewage lagoons. Debby's 401st lifer, and 300th Kansas bird!
The cold weather forced us back to our vehicle before long. Once back at
our vehicle we were able to give the good news to four other people who
were also on the hunt for this bird. Hope they found it.

Congratulations to Debby on these milestones.

Hi Nancy, and KS. birders.

Here is a quote from Arthur Cleveland Bent:
"Although the Savannah sparrow runs when disturbed,
it hops when it feeds, and sometimes scratches like a towhee."

Nice observation, Nancy. Good birding,

Yesterday a chipping sparrow showed up, as well as a drab little sparrow with heavy streaking on breast and small central dot, overall impression was of gray/buffy color with streaks. Seems to fit Lincoln’s Sparrow descriptions.

My question is about behavior. It was scratching with both feet, like a towhee. I don’t find this mentioned anywhere in sparrow descriptions, except Fox, and it is too small for that. Any thoughts?

Hi all,


I made a quick trip through Quivira on the way to Wilson this afternoon, stopping at the HQ to see if could find the Pileated Woodpecker observed by staff earlier in the day - no luck. I did have a female Purple Finch and Eastern Phoebe in the shelterbelt there. Lots of ducks at Park Smith Pond and along Hunter Access Road, but nothing unusual. I need to get moving when I got on the north end, so did not take the Wildlife Drive, staying on 170th Rd to look for shorebirds. I had 10 Killdeer, 54 Snowy Plovers, 8 Greater and 6 Lesser Yellowlegs, 80 Least Sandpipers, 20 Baird's Sandpipers and a single Pectoral Sandpiper. Plenty of waterfowl along the road there as well, with most interesting being two Red-breasted Mergansers. Another interesting sighting was a Common Loon at the little sand pit pond just south of Ellinwood.

Not much else to report except lots of sparrows. I saw my FOS Vesper Sparrows on 22 March in Harper and Kingman. Also I was surprised to see early Lark Sparrows in both Harper and Kingman on 22 March. Normal arrival date in the Larned area would be a month from now.

Subject: Habitat improvement at Oak Park-Honeysuckle removal -This Saturday
I am quite tardy in posting a reminder about the Wichita Audubon Society
event for this coming Saturday, March 25. This is a volunteer work
event to remove invasive honeysuckle shrubs from the understory at Oak
Park in Wichita. Asian bush honeysuckle is an invasive plant that is
causing serious habitat damage in many Wichita parks and throughout
Kansas. The environmental degradation caused by this plant is
difficult to overstate. It eliminates most native understory plant
species, and the bird species that depend on them. We'll spend 3 - 4
hours removing these plants, directed by the Wichita Parks Department
staff. All required tools, work gloves and bottled water will be
provided. This is good exercise and a positive contribution to
preserving habitat quality at one of our best local birding spots.
There is something for everyone to do regardless of strength and
stamina. We will meet by the stone arch at the southwest corner of the
park. This year we are being asked to sign liability releases. Also,
the volunteer hours that we accrue help the city to qualify for
additional federal funds to continue this fight. Email me if you need
any other information. Also, I'll be having biscuits and gravy at
Riverside Cafe at about 8 am if anyone cares to join me. No I won't be
buying........

Subject: SW/central KS sightings (March 14-18) plus Clark Co. post-burn update
This past week (March 14-18, 2017) I was conducting bird surveys for work in Clark County in southwest Kansas, with additional birding in the afternoons plus stops while driving between Kansas City and Dodge City. Before I get into the sightings, I wanted to address the current conditions in Clark Co. since the previous week’s fire, which burned from the Oklahoma border up through Clark and Comanche counties, and was apparently the largest fire recorded in Kansas history (over 500K acres). On March 15 after surveying near Minneola, I went over to Clark State Fishing Lake via the western access (Hwy. 283 south of Minneola, then following the signs towards the lake). The fire affected almost all of the area lying east and south of the agricultural land southeast of Minneola where the wind farm is being constructed, and completely burned the area surrounding Clark SFL down to its shoreline. The prior grassland-yucca habitat on the surrounding hills was burned down to the soil, with yucca stumps remaining in some areas. I’m aware that grasslands are a fire adapted community, but I have no idea how/on what timeframe they recover when affected by unseasonal, high severity fires during dry years. It has been a very dry winter out there and none of the regional playas or tanks have water, except where manually brought in by ranchers for their cattle. In some spots there is already some grass (native?) sprouting up, but over much of the area it appeared to be bare soil. Hopefully enough vegetation can resprout and help stabilize the soil before the next major deluge, but either way there is bound to be heavy erosion in spots when they do get substantial rain. In the draws among the hills, some of the junipers and riparian shrub species were scorched, while others appeared to be moderately burned and may survive. Luckily, most of the trees and shrubs at the main camping/boat launch spots around the lake were only lightly burned and the ranger’s residence and outhouses buildings around the lake were untouched, undoubtedly due to the local firefighting effort during the blaze. In the riparian area along the Bluff Creek inflow at the north end of the lake, I hiked about 0.5-mile upstream to check out the damage. It appears that the fire burned through the understory shrubs and woody debris (including fallen logs), but all the larger trees and snags are all still present and appear to have only been lightly burned around the lower portions of their trunks. I would guess most of the larger trees will survive and the fire simply cleared out the understory and reduced the density of smaller shrubs and trees along this riparian corridor.

Anyways, here are some brief bird highlights by date in central and southwest KS:

—March 14: At a small farm lake at the intersection of Hwy. 50 and 170 Rd. in Chase County I had ~200 BONAPARTE’S and a few RING-BILLED GULLS. Also present was an early SPOTTED SANDPIPER and a few HOODED MERGANSERS and REDHEADS. Here is the eBird list if you want to see the map location and some gull photos: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35180681.

Later in the afternoon I detoured up to Quivira National Wildlife Refuge (Stafford Co.) At Little Salt Marsh, highlights included three BAIRD’S SANDPIPERS, 62 RING-BILLED GULLS, and scattered waterfowl (predominantly RUDDY DUCKS and GREEN-WINGED TEAL) at Little Salt Marsh. At Migrants Mile/Park Smith Lake I had a flyover flock of 22 SNOW GEESE, an assortment of seven waterfowl species including COMMON GOLDENEYES, and lingering AMERICAN TREE and HARRIS’S SPARROWS mixed in with a junco flock. At an adjacent farm field while checking out a herd of white-tailed deer, I was amused to see a young buck repeatedly chase a pair of CANADA GEESE, although I was too slow at getting my camera up to get any footage of it! On the main refuge road south of 170th St. I saw four SHORT-EARED OWLS foraging near sunset, along with more scattered, diverse duck flocks, and a few more AMERICAN TREE SPARROWS. Along 170th St. in the vicinity of Big Salt Marsh at sunset I counted at least 650 SANDHILL CRANES coming in, but at dusk I could hear many more south of 170th St. and flying over unseen in the twilight. I also saw another SHORT-EARED OWL at sunset and hundreds more ducks coming into the ponds.

—March 15: In the afternoon at Clark State Fishing Lake (Clark Co.), on the lake I had 12 waterfowl species including 232 LESSER SCAUPS and 150 GADWALLS, 15 RING-BILLED GULLS, and flyover flocks of 440+ SANDHILL CRANES. While hiking about 0.5-mile through the riparian area along the Bluff Creek inflow at the lake, I still found decent bird activity despite the recent burn, with highlights including at least two BARRED OWLS, 13 RED-BELLIED WOODPECKERS, nine DOWNY WOODPECKERS, four NORTHERN FLICKERS, two EASTERN PHOEBES, eight WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, a lingering WINTER WREN, 8+ CAROLINA WRENS, 10 EASTERN BLUEBIRDS including several singing males, 250+ AMERICAN ROBINS, plus several juncos and cardinals. In the junipers at the campground by the Bluff Creek inflow I had a few CEDAR WAXWINGS. While driving back to Dodge City from Minneola I saw a couple of ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS (Clark/Ford counties). Stopping to refuel at the Cenex gas station on 14th Ave. on the south side of Dodge City, I saw a BLACK-BILLED MAGPIE harassing some pigeons atop the ramada over the pumps (raiding their nest?).

—March 16: While surveying near Minneola in Clark Co. (not able to divulge exact locations) I saw several longspur flocks among farm fields and a couple of farm tanks that still had a little water, with dozens of LAPLAND LONGSPURS and smaller numbers of CHESTNUT-COLLARED and McCOWN’S. I also had my first-of-year VESPER SPARROW. In the late afternoon I checked out the Fowler Sandhills west of Minneola at the juncture of Clark, Meade, and Ford counties. Along C Rd. I saw a LESSER PRAIRIE-CHICKEN fly over, then along County Line Rd. I saw another one fly north of the road on the Ford Co. side. I listened here from sunset through dusk and heard several LESSER PRAIRIE-CHICKENS booming at leks on both sides of County Line Rd., although most were on the Ford Co. side and I only for sure heard one on the Clark Co. side. Earlier along C Rd. I saw a SHORT-EARED OWL and a ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK cruising the grasslands. Along County Line Rd. at sunset I also had a couple flocks of NORTHERN PINTAILS fly over and a flock of ~50 CHESTNUT-COLLARED LONGSPURS. On my way back to Hwy. 283 I spotted a SHORT-EARED OWL flying over my headlight shine along 108 Rd. south of Wrangler Rd.

—March 17: During surveys near Minneola (not able to give exact locations), I had my first-of-season BURROWING OWLS, YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD, BROWN-HEADED COWBIRDS, and COMMON GRACKLES.

—March 18: After finishing surveys, I had a couple of first-of-season birds southeast of Minneola: two GREATER YELLOWLEGS along a pond near the Bluff Creek bridge on County Rd. 14. and a SAY’S PHOEBE near some oil/gas machinery along this road south of the bridge.

On my way back to Kansas City, I made stops at a couple of birding sites I hadn’t visited before. At Texas Lake Wildlife Area near Pratt (Pratt Co.) I had lots of pheasants, sparrows, juncos, blackbirds, and meadowlarks throughout the grasslands, including one VESPER SPARROW and six HARRIS’S SPARROWS. There was a little water what my iPhone map showed to be the main “lake” that I could see from one of the parking spots, but I didn’t have wading boots with me so decided against trudging through the marshy area to look for potential ducks or shorebirds. While driving through the town of Pratt I saw my first-of-season TURKEY VULTURE fly over the highway. After getting a late lunch in Pratt, I checked out the Ninnescah River Trail next to the KDWPT headquarters, birding first along the segment on the north side of the river and then over on the boardwalk segments near Pratt County Lake. Highlights included watching a pair of TUFTED TITMICE carrying nesting material into a tree cavity and seeing a nifty intergrade Red-shafted x Yellow-shafted NORTHERN FLICKER. I also heard a chickadee along the riparian area, but left it as just Black-capped/Carolina in eBird since this area would appear to be roughly within the contact zone between the two species.


Good birding,

Subject: Overland Park Arboretum, KCP&L Wetlands (Johnson Co.)
March 19, 2017
Today I got out in mid-afternoon to take advantage of the warm weather on the trails at the Overland Park Arboretum (Johnson County). At the feeder station there were still lots of Purple Finches (~20+). Along with the regular resident species, I also had a flyover Turkey Vulture, a singing Eastern Phoebe, 4 Brown Creepers, one calling Winter Wren, one Ruby-crowned and 8+ Golden-crowned Kinglets, two ‘Myrtle’ Yellow-rumped Warblers, one Fox Sparrow, and several Dark-eyed Juncos and White-throated Sparrows. One of the breeding pair of Red-shouldered Hawks appeared to be carrying off a snake. Some wildflowers are in bloom along the trail, plus in the gardens there were lots of hyacinths and daffodils. A few butterflies were out as well (I took photos of some that looked like satyrs, will have to look up ID).

In the late afternoon I made my first trip over to the KCP&L Wetlands in Gardner where the wind was very blustery. Struggling against the wind were at least six Tree Swallows (my first of season). Among the shorebird selection were two Pectoral Sandpipers, one Least Sandpiper, at least six Greater Yellowlegs, one Lesser Yellowlegs, and several each of Wilson’s Snipes and Killdeer. While there I ran into David Kirsch who said earlier he had seen some Long-billed Dowitchers mixed in with the snipes. As for waterfowl, Blue-winged Teal were abundant, with smaller numbers of Gadwalls, Mallards, American Wigeons, Northern Shovelers, and Green-winged Teal. Other highlights included an Eastern Phoebe, a Fox Sparrow, a Swamp Sparrow, large flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds, Brown-headed Cowbirds, and Common Grackles, two muskrats, and a snapping turtle periodically peeking its head out of the water like a small stump at dusk. I stayed until dusk to see if I could hear any woodcocks, but didn’t hear any among the strong wind and constant train noise.

Good birding,

Henry Armknecht was nice enough to show my family and I the area where the
sapsucker had been seen. Sure enough as soon as we approached the area the
bird showed itself. Good looks were had by all. Upon watching the bird at
a distance it flew towards us and landed in a tree about 50 ft away. A
great experience. We did not pursue it as to hopefully keep it comfortable
in it's surroundings for future viewing. I'd encourage others to do the
same. The sighting occurred at 4:15 Sunday afternoon.

Subject: Suet Log Feeder
I got a new "Trail Camera" from Bushnell and it takes very nice

pictures. I decided to aim it at the suet log feeder last month. Check
out the variety of birds that come to eat at it. I especially like
seeing the brown creepers.

https://youtu.be/e3MscERJUKo

In my opinion the best way to attract suet eating birds is to make your
own suet and serve it in a suet log feeder. The suet log feeder has 1"
diameter holes drilled part way through. The suet is stuffed in the
holes. Birds attracted to this suet include the following birds shown in
the video: northern flicker, downy woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker,
dark-eyed junco, brown creeper, white-breasted nuthatch, yellow-rumped
warbler, black-capped chickadee, Carolina wren, European starling and
house sparrow.

Bald Eagle - immature near the Mass Street Bridge
Carolina Wren - 10 calling
Eastern Phoebe - 4 - 2 calling (one was singing near my hose this morning as well); 2 were in usual breeding areas

White-throated Sparrow - 1
Fox Sparrow - 2 - one was singing in a bushy tangle near the north stream
Song Sparrow - 8 - lots of song
Swamp Sparrow - 1

Yellow-rump Warbler - 9 in dull winter plumage & just chips

It was just nice to be out - lots of usual suspect song M Doves, Chickadees, Titmice, House Finches, RB Woodpeckers, Cardinals, WB Nuthatches, & especially C Wrens. Spring approaches.

My brother joined me for a trip to Quivira NWR this AM. Good duck numbers
noted with about 11 species seen. Oddities were a count of 61 Snowy Plovers
on the north mud flat and I heard one American Bittern doing it's odd call
just before the sun came up on the east side of the Wildlife Drive. Barry
had a number of wrens NW of the Wildlife Drive and reported two female
Purple Finches. These were all quiet when I made it to that area. The
Eagle was sitting on the south next and the north nest appeared empty. We
did not look at the middle nest. I heard both Yellowlegs but saw no other
shorebirds apart from a small group of Peeps. (Least?).

Lunch at Roy's Hickory Pit Barbecue just north of 4th on Nickerson Road in
Hutchinson. I knew Roy as a kid as I delivered the Hutch News to him.
Roy is gone now but the new owners still run a great little business with
very good food. They are open from 11 to 2 Tue to Sat. There are a lot of
chain barbecue places birders can patronize but this one is the real deal.
Highly recommended.

Hi all,


On a tip from Dave Klema, I made a trip to a couple of rural Russell Co. roads to the southwest of Wilson (Stickney & 204th and Winterset & 204th)to look for Short-eared Owls. He had three in the area earlier in the week, so I took advantage of the relatively calm conditions to see what I could find, I saw 8 N. Harriers flying the grasslands and had a dozen Greater Prairie Chickens fly over from a stubble field into the grass. Lots of both meadowlark species singing and I had a single Vesper Sparrow on a fence by the road. I was rewarded for persistence as the sun sank below the horizon by a single SE Owl flying fairly high about a quarter mile away. I soon saw another a mile to the north and had one sitting on a post a few yards ahead of me when it was getting almost too dark to see. A great evening to be out!l,

Gene Young and I surveyed the wetlands yesterday. Duck numbers were way
down. Large number of pelicans on the Winfield Gun Club at the north end of
the wetlands. Baird's Sandpiper was added as a new arrival. Some of the
better shorebird areas are starting to dry up. See link for full report.

Subject: Quivira report and eagle nest update
Today, 17 March 2017, at Quivira's Environmental Education Classroom area, there were 10 FOS Tree Swallows. Also at least 2 Snowy Plover on the flats north of NE 170th St. Otherwise, still a couple 100 Sandhill Cranes refuge-wide, and no geese except Canadas.

Eagle nest situation, as of today:
Santana Natural Area nest: adult has been observed sitting on nest for several weeks, likely incubating. This nest can be seen from the road, 1/2 mile north of the junction of NE 140th Avenue and NE 105th Street, looking west (this is northwest of Little Salt Marsh).
Southwest Big Salt Marsh nest: regular activity seen up until a couple of weeks ago, but no adult seen on the past several views - situation uncertain (could be the viewing angle). This nest is 1/3 mile north of the NE 140th Street blacktop, west of the Artesian Well pulloff.
Northwest Big Salt Marsh nest: no regular activity on this nest, other than occasional roosting. It was used for nesting last year. This can be seen on the northwest portion of the Wildlife Drive.

At least two credible whooping crane reports for the upper Great Plains just this week, so keep an eye out for them. Today's date is very near the average first sighting date for Quivira.

Subject: Central and Western Trip Report
Over the past three days March 14th through 16th Micky Louis, Kathy
Carroll, and myself took a trip to central and western Kansas in search of
Chickens, Longspurs, and Waterfowl (CLAW). This is the second year I tried
a CLAW trip and hope next year a similar opportunity exists. We left
Tuesday March 14th from Overland Park and arrived at Quivira before noon,
where two lingered Rough-Legged Hawks were mixed in with a good diversity
of waterfowl, and we saw our first Least Sandpipers and Snowy Plovers of
the year. We struggled to find waterfowl at the other sewage lagoons in
Ford County but did have a Say’s Phoebe at Spearville WTP. In Hodgeman
County we saw breeding plumage McCown’s and Lapland Longspurs as well as Lesser
Prairie Chickens on County Rd D north of Dodge City. With our two of three
targeted life-birds for our group seen on the first day we headed further
west with hopes of finding a few others.



On March 15th we had a very productive drive along Deerfield Lane, with a
handful of Ferruginous Hawks, a Prairie Falcon, a flyby Chestnut-Collared
Longspur that unfortunately only I saw well and then inadvertently flushed
when backing up, and two early LONG BILLED-CURLEWS. Along the river roads
south of Syracuse we found Scaled Quail, a Curve Billed Thrasher, a
cooperative singing Say’s Phoebe, and many Black-billed Magpies. Three
Common Ravens were visiting roadkill with a Bald Eagle along County Rd J
while a handful of Rough-Legged Hawks were still in the area. Waterfowl
numbers at Lake McKinney were amazing, with 11 male Cinnamon Teal.
Waterfowl numbers were nice on most of the sewage ponds and lakes west of
Garden City on the 15th, surprisingly more diverse and greater numbers than
the day before between Great Bend and Dodge. We were not successful in our
search for a Golden Eagle, but could not complain with the other wonderful
surprises and migrating Sandhill Cranes found at almost every stop.



We had a handful of owls calling below the dam and Cedar Bluffs and crashed
late Wednesday night in La Crosse. Two trumpeter Swans and a pair of Cinnamon
Teal highlighted the drive through Cheyenne Bottoms and we checked a few
other locations on our way back to the KC area today. We ended with almost
a thousand miles and over a hundred species for the trip. Time with
friends, a few photos for memories, and enjoyment with nature were the true
highlights however.



Good Birding,

Neosho WA - The bulk of the water has been drained from the facility.
~40Acres of shallow water is left that sits below the level of the gates.
This should make for interesting shore birding over the next couple weeks,
assuming they don't trench out a drainage path. If we do get a flooding
type rain event conditions could get even better. On March 1st I was able
to ID 3 Pectoral Sandpipers with 9 located on 3-12. Killdeer are present
in big numbers with good numbers of Wilson Snipe available to view. There
were also 8 Greater Yellowlegs present on 3-12. The refuge road gates are
still closed for the season, so a lot of walking is required.

Lake Parsons - The Red-breasted Nuthatch is still present at the feeding
station. Also had several Red-breasted Mergansers on the lake over the
last week or so.

Burned CRP - A recently burned CRP field yielded an American Golden-Plover
on 3-11, then 4 individuals on 3-12. The same field produced 8 Brewers
Blackbirds, which were my first in the county for the year, which is
unusual. I am still missing Rusty Blackbird.

Purple Martin - on Mar 3rd a male Purple Martin arrived at my home colony.
The earliest arrival in the history of my colony.

I'm wondering if the chickadees are looking at the next box. Later I got in my car that was parked below the crabapple.  I noticed tiny wood chips all over the ground.  I'd put small wood chips in this box a few weeks before. I'm sure the chickadees are excavating the wood chips so they can nest.  I'm excited.  Fyi. Earlier I put a 1 1/8 hole restrictor on box to keep out house sparrows but allow chickadees to enter.

There were many ducks and geese as you can see below. There were four shorebird species with Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Lesser Yellowlegs, and a Long-billed Dowitcher.
One realizes what these creatures must go through as we saw the Great Horned Owl on its nest with snow and frost on its back. We recorded four Tree Swallows and an Eastern Phoebe. The Eastern Phoebe came out from under the Wakarusa River bridge. There were a large number of Song Sparrows. We saw them all along the way in appropriate habitat.

Subject: Quivira 10 March
I did a quick drive through of Quivira NWR from south to north on Friday
evening, 10 March. There were about 200 Sandhill Cranes and 19 Tundra Swans
on the western leg of the Wildlife Drive. An additional 3 Tundra Swans were
on the small pond by the refuge bunkhouse AKA Migrant Mile. There were tons
of diving ducks to look at everywhere, but I saw no rarities. I also missed
seeing any shorebirds aside from Killdeer, though I'm sure there must be
some around somewhere. A Short-eared Owl was perched just west of the exit
of the Wildlife Drive at sundown.



More Sandhill Cranes were in the air west of Quivira, so many may be
roosting in fields off the refuge.



I've been working in Harper County a few days a month and adding lots of
species to my personal county list in the process. Notables include a
Greater Roadrunner on 9 March and a Peregrine Falcon on 8 March. The
Peregrine was just a flyby, I imagine, and was not far off the highway NE of
the town of Harper. It is potentially a 1st county record for Harper.



I saw a rather late Rough-legged Hawk in SE Kingman County on 8 March.
Where one often sees pale cream-colored feathering on the neck and head of a
RLHA, this bird was essentially pure white. I'd never seen anything quite
like it in a RLHA, but am confident of the ID as every other fieldmark was
Rough-legged all the way.



This last week there was a definite turnover of birds out in the
countryside. Sparrow numbers were way up, presumable bolstered by wintering
birds from the south. The big flocks of wintering meadowlarks and Horned
Larks were gone. Am. Tree Sparrows had also hit the highway, though I did
manage to see a handful in with random flocks of Harris's and White-crowned.
I had managed to miss Eastern Phoebes until this week, but beginning Tuesday
they were scattered throughout in Harper, Kingman and Reno.

Subject: NC KS Trip summary
I spent three days March 8-10 with Kevin Groeneweg, Tom Ewert and Bill
Langley doing some county-list birding in north-central Kansas. We
started with the Golden-crowned Sparrow stakeout near Blackwolf (mission
accomplished), and spent the remainder of March 8 in Russell and Rooks
Counties. Most of March 9 we spent in Phillips and Norton Counties,
with the last two hours of daylight spent in Graham Co. On March 10 we
birded in Trego and Rush Counties, with a spin around the wildlife loop
at Quivira on the way home.

Waterfowl numbers were tremendous at several locations, but conversely
some major reservoirs were also virtually bird free. Redhead,
Ring-necked Duck, Lesser Scaup Pintail, Gadwall, Am. Wigeon, N.
Shoveler and Green-winged Teal numbers were impressive, especially at
Sebelius. The total number of waterfowl at Sebelius Reservoir (Norton
Co) on the evening of the 9th was well into five figures. Another
large concentration of waterfowl dominated by Snow, Ross's and
White-fronted Geese was at the western end of Webster Wildlife Area
(Rooks Co.) on the evening of the 8th. The only lake with significant
numbers of Common Goldeneye was Wilson (Russell Co.) with 125 present.
With this flock were three Long-tailed Ducks including an adult male
which I have only seen one other time in Kansas.

Wintering species such as Common Merganser, gulls, Rough-legged Hawk
and N. Shrike were almost or completely absent. We encountered
migrating flocks of Mountain Bluebirds and Sandhill Cranes in several
counties. We saw a number of Red-tailed Hawks and GH Owls on nests in
most or all counties we visited. Red-breasted Nuthatches are still
around, as we found them at a number of locations. Antelope Lake in
Graham Co. had a single Yellow-headed Blackbird and a small flock of
Rusty Blackbirds on Mar 9. White-winged Dove was present in the town of
Kirwin (Phillips Co.) and in the Norton Cemetery (Norton Co.) on May 9.
A major surprise was a Sage Thrasher observed in the big grove of pines
on the south edge of the town of Kirwin (Phillips Co.) on May 9. Bill
Langley and I got great looks at it. Despite some searching we were
unable to relocate this bird for the other two members of the party.
There was a single Townsend's Solitaire at Sylvan Grove Campground at
Wilson Reservoir (Russell Co.) on May 8. There were several species of
shorebirds at Warren Stone Lake in Rush Co on March 10. Most notable
was an apparent Short-billed Dowitcher, a new county record for Rush
Co. At Quivira we were not able to find any Cinnamon Teal but did see
14 Tundra Swans.

The huge fires of this past week burned a lot of the land around WIlson
Reservoir. The roads were closed west of Hell Creek Rec. Area and from
the road barricade blackened ground was all you could see to the west.
The big fires completely burned through Rooks State Fishing Lake. The
pavilions and parking area were unburned but everything else was
torched. Sebelius Lake in Norton County is about as low as it was in
2009 when the KOS meeting had the absolute shorebird bonanza. At least
at this time it appears that shorebirding conditions at that lake will
again be superb for the spring migration.

Hi Folks,

I went for a walk late this afternoon over by Oak Park along the Little Arkansas River. I was surprised to see a Great Egret fishing in the river. Also a few Wood Ducks. The same place I saw the Killdeer a few days ago.

Happy Birding,

Subject: Golden-crowned Sparrow continues in Ellsworth County, 9 March
I was very late to the party, but yesterday I finally made the pilgrimage
to Ellsworth County with Galen Pittman, who had kindly been sending me text
messages for the past month and a half every time someone else saw the
Golden-crowned Sparrow first discovered by Kevin Groeneweg on 7 January.
These messages were gentle reminders that the bird, which would be a new
addition (#411) to my Kansas life list, had been ridiculously cooperative
week after week for dozens of birders, staying almost exclusively in a
single brush pile just a few feet from the road and routinely popping into
view within minutes or seconds.

We arrived shortly after noon and promptly found most of the species that
had been previously reported in the brush pile... except for the
Golden-crowned. An hour later, we had seen those same species quite a
number of times, but still no sign of our target bird. Finally, just as we
were contemplating formulating a Plan B, the bird apparently awoke from its
midday nap and started to forage at the south edge of the brush pile,
mostly scratching like a thrasher on the straw-covered ground but
occasionally sallying upward as if after an insect. I got a few photos to
add to the burgeoning documentation of this very attractive 1st winter
bird, which I've posted on BirdsInFocus (short link: goo.gl/bAm03T) and
with my eBird checklist (http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35071091).
In my archives I also have some nice shots of the bird foraging among fresh
cow pies... and in my archives is probably where they will stay.

It was a great day to be out. We also found a Mountain Bluebird,
Red-breasted Nuthatches, Cedar Waxwings, and an Eastern Screech-Owl at
Wilson Lake in Russell County and a Rough-legged Hawk nearby in Lincoln
County. Our complete lists are on eBird.

Access to the fort is no longer restricted, however, you still need to get a

The bottomland forest and thick understory was busy with sparrows today. 20
Fox Sparrows and 5 towhees (mostly Eastern, maybe a Spotted) was a
highlight. Interesting to hear many singing Fox, Lincoln's, Song, Harris,
White-throated and White-crowned.

Subject: No Sighting: Wings Over Weston
Wings Over Weston has three needs this year so we're reaching out to our
birding friends to see if anyone has an interest in helping us out. Our
needs are:



1. We need a Peregrine Falcon on Saturday, May 13. Lakeside Nature
Center attends and brings a Peregrine Falcon, but they are extremely low on
staff and volunteers and don't have the resources this year. (We have
already contacted MU Raptor Rehab, World Bird Sanctuary, and Operation
Wildlife.) If there are any other places we're not aware of, we're hoping
someone can let us know who that is.



2. We need someone who is knowledgeable about Prairie Chickens to
volunteer for our Prairie Chicken booth on Saturday, May 13. Matt Hill with
MDC has offered some supplies and Wings Over Weston has a banner for this
booth.



3. We need two outgoing birders to teach 4th graders how to use
binoculars and to take them on a short 10-minute hike. Birding 101 is a
station we offer on Friday, May 12 when we host approximately 200 fourth
graders who are divided into eight groups and are rotated through eight
stations from 9AM to 2PM. This person needs to be outgoing and have an
"adventurous" voice to make this seem exciting to children.



If you're not familiar with Wings Over Weston, it began in 2010 as a
one-time festival that introduced the Iatan/Weston River Corridor Important
Bird Area to the public. Seven years later, it is the largest one-day
birding festival in the Midwest with a very unique niche - children. Wings
Over Weston introduces birds, their migration, and the importance of
conservation of habitat to children, the birders of tomorrow. If anyone has
a question, please don't hesitate to reach out to me off-list. Wings Over
Weston is Saturday, May 13 from 9AM to 4PM.

Refuge-wide waterfowl survey was conducted at Quivira this morning, 9 March. I don't have all of the totals yet, but in general not many geese (only about 300 snow and 100 cackling) or sandhill cranes (less than 100). Duck diversity very high, though, with all regular/fairly common species present. A few notable birds from this morning (FOS, at least for me here at Quivira):

Wood Duck (5 in Unit 63)
American Avocet (1 along the west Wildlife Drive)
Eastern Phoebe (HQ)

Also, a total of 6 Cinnamon Teal, including one pair along NE 170th Street flats, and 23 Tundra Swans in northwest Big Salt Marsh.

Subject: Lloyd Moore
I was very deeply sadden to learn about the death of Lloyd Moore. We first met in 1972 at a Burroughs-Audubon field trip led by Kelly and Chris Hobbs. We became friends and in 1979, we teamed up for a vacation trip to the Rio Grande Valley.. It was to be the first of many wonderful vacation trips over the next years. Can't tell you how many lifers we found together over the years.. When we weren't taking vacations, we were out nearly ever weekend birding all the hot spots around Kansas City. The number of weekend trips to places like roaring river. Great Bend and to Oklahoma were countless. It was may very good fortune to have been a birding partner with Lloyd for all those years. The last trip I birded with him before his health started to fail was at Maris Des Cygnes. You will be missed my friend. I have placed a memorial for Lloyd on a internet site called Find a Grave. If anyone wishes to make some comments about Lloyd, sent them to me and I place your remarks in his bio. Be sure and add your name at the end of your comments. Send to Richard Parker, <rialpa38...> and in the subject line say: Lloyd Bio.

Hi Folks,

This evening (Wednesday) I saw about 10 Killdeers on the Little Arkansas River, near sunset. About a week ago I heard some in the same spot, but it was darker that day and I only heard them. Also today, with the Killdeers, there was a unusual Northern Pintail swimming along with the Mallards.

I still have a least one Red-breasted Nuthatch coming to my feeders in Riverside, here in Wichita.

Happy Birding,

Subject: Lloyd Moore
I started seriously birding in my late 30's. I knew Lloyd as the voice of the Kansas City hotline where you called in your sightings and left a message. One day I reported a Swainson's Warbler at Lake Jacomo in the middle of the long list of sightings that day. Not really realizing it's rarity. Lloyd immediately called me back and we had a great long conversation with the details and numerous answers to my questions about birds and rarities. He was such a wealth of information. A lot of my early KC influences are gone now and it makes me sad. Goodbye sir.

RIP Lloyd....

Lloyd and I had a lot of fun razzing each other and talking birds - often
via email. He ran the Wreford Breeding Bird Survey for quite a few years
which starts right outside of Junction City and meanders through Geary
County. I reminded him every year that I wanted that route! As he started
having more and more mobility issues he contacted me and had me run it
with him a couple of year and eventually turned the route over to me. I
was very appreciative of that and continue to run that BBS route to this
day. He tracked a lot of changes in bird populations - something I've
tried to continue and expand on. His tracking of Eurasian Collared-Doves
was really good - the link may have disappeared off the ksbirds.org
website but I need to check and get it back up there.

Lloyd was one of the original members to the Kansas Bird Records
Committee, as it is currently organized, service from 1991 - 1997 and
again 2000 - 2006. He served on the KOS Board as a director from 1992 to
1994. Lloyd compiled the Seasonal Birding Roundup for the KOS Newsletter
from June of 2001 through December of 2004.

Lloyd, thanks for all you did...

Chuck

All,


Sorry to hear of the passing of Lloyd Moore today. He was a great guy and an early influence on my birding career. I was saddened by how he had to spend the last few years of his life - in poor health and basically house-bound. I do know he relished living vicariously through the bird sightings of others, even though he was no longer able to participate himself. RIP my friend...

Tim Barksdale and I visited him just once while he was in hospice care. He
reminded me I was tasked with spreading his ashes in the Flint Hills.

Several times since I had intended to see him again, but something always
'came up'. Death, like vagrant birds, doesn't wait for anyone.

Lloyd was always making contributions to the birding community and
permanent record. He pioneered the KC bird hotline before the internet - a
recorded phone message updated almost daily. He collected and contributed
birding data to American Birds and KOS for many decades. Lloyd was a
humble, thoughtful human being.
His stature among the birding community will stand tall forever.

He was one of the first to fully document the movement of Eur.-Coll. Doves across KS. We corresponded often about birds via e-mails and IM on FB. Never really birded with him, talked with him at KOS meetings. But he was in tune with FB and we had many great discussions concerning birds and politics over the years. RIP.

Lloyd and I spent many many years birding together over the last 30 years
all over Kansas and beyond. We chased Kansas lifers, especially in Morton
county, worked on BBS routes and KBBAT blocks together, served on the KBRC
together including collaborating on several successful record submissions,
went birding to QNWR and CBWA too many times to count(!!), and generally
just went birding whenever we got a chance until his health made it
difficult for him to go out in the field. He will be missed ..... RIP old
friend.

Subject: Night birding
After a continuous dinner, I went birding. My pissed off attitude was
rewarded with a Northern Saw-wet owl and a woodcock in Tuttle Creek Cove. I
tried several spots on my way home to find a Eastern Screech Owl without
any success. I took the dogs out for their last chance to do their duty.
While waiting on them, l played the tape and I was rewarded with a Screech
Owl. I did not have my binocs but I think it was a grey phase. This would
be a first for my yard.

Subject: County Checklists Updated
Good evening KSBirders!

I have just completed updating the Kansas County Checklists and up loaded
them to the web page: http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/checklist_index.htm

There were 81 county checklists updated representing 174 new county
species. A big thank you once again to Dan Larson who took on the
painstaking task of comparing the county checklists to the eBird lists to find
missing species. This takes a lot of Dan's time which he willingly volunteers
to do. Thanks Dan!

The changes are listed below. The format, as always, is county name first,
number of species now on the county checklist followed by a list of the
species added (or occasionally removed due to error checking). Any species
marked with an asterisk (*) indicates a confirmed breeding record. (It should
be noted that when the checklists were first compiled we included confirmed
AND probable breeding records. Starting in 2011 only confirmed breeding
records are added. Someday I hope to go back and update the checklists to
differentiate the confirmed and probable breeding records on the checklists
and maps....... someday......)

Speaking of the county dot maps, they are not yet updated. I'll be working on
those during the rest of the month. Virtually everything else on the County
Checklist index page has been updated except the checklist as Adobe
Acrobat Forms. I'll get those done in the next few weeks as well.

As always if you have problems opening any checklist let me know (I always
go through and open each updated checklist from the web page... but you
never know!) And I can almost guarantee that within 24 hours someone will
send me an update - and that's okay. These do represent everything that I
had as of March 1. Dan's eBird updates were as of last fall. If you find
something on your lists that aren't on these lists, it probably means you never
sent it to me!!

Subject: Re: Spring arrivals and a Song Sparrow question
As far as I know, there are only 3 subspecies that have been seen in Kansas
although I don't think anyone has looked at them in great depth.
M. m. juddi, M. m. euphonia, M. m. montana. The common one is juddi. I have
seen montana here before and it has very narrow breast striping. I am not
sure about euphonia. Neither the Pacific NW Song Sparrow nor the "desert"
song sparrow fallax are likely in Kansas.

Subject: Spring arrivals and a Song Sparrow question

First Eastern Phoebe at Stockdale on March 2, a Franklin's Gull on the same
date at the tubes that Paul Weidhaas told me about and a Hermit Thrush along
the River Pond on March 4. Clearly things are moving north.


My question concerns a Song Sparrow that I saw along the Blue River Hills
Road just past Mill Creek. It was with several American Tree Sparrows.
The Song Sparrow was so reddish that my initial reaction was Fox Sparrow.
However, the size, bill, facial pattern and amount of underpart streaking
all looked wrong. I wanted a photograph, but the bird flew while I was
waiting on the autofocus. The bird had a strong reddish central spot, a
limited amount of reddish streaking on the breast and sides and a strong
reddish color to its wings and tail. It had the light head stripe of Song
Sparrows but looked totally different from the darker brownish ones that I
have been seeing. I didn't get a good look at the back color. As soon as I
got back to my car I grabbed the National Geographic field guide, and the
similarity to the fallax subspecies of the desert southwest immediately
caught my attention. We have had some strong southern winds lately but this
identification seems unlikely to me. The next most likely candidate would
be the morphna subspecies of the Pacific northwest, although the bird that I
saw did not appear quite that dark. Have either of these subspecies been
seen in Kansas, let alone Riley County? I recognize that color pictures in
any field guide may be off and that color varies within any subspecies. Any
suggestions would be appreciated!

Subject: Re: Grackles and Coopers
This week, early in AM as I restored feeders to outdoors and raccoon
territory, I heard crows mobbing something--and watched more join them
(south of our pond--just SE of Derby). After a bit, I heard the hawks and
saw two land in Cottonwood east of pond (Cooper's had mated in just that
spot a couple years ago). Then one took off heading away from pond...one
remained in tree longer, calling softly (to my ear) then followed mate
away. Crows continued to make huge ruckus. Cooper's have nested near pond
several years--last Fall I watched Mom carry snake to big fledglings who
had to fly away from nest and land on grass where she dropped it away from
trees. This year, I'm afraid the crows may have destroyed their
nest/eggs/young. Nature is really tough.
Also, last week, I saw a male Bluebird fly into a Starling that was in
our Sweetgum. He seemed to deliberately crash into the bird--the Starlings
left. I had looked up because of noise. Anyway, I have a pair of
Bluebirds in the nest box, and eating dried mealworms from my feeders, so
I'm speculating that the Bluebird was defending his nest (about 125 feet
away). It was cool. A couple years ago I had seen a European House
sparrow beat up a male and drive him from the nest. I destroyed the
Sparrow's nest four consecutive days and he eventually abandoned the
birdhouse. But, my Bluebirds did not return. Delighted to see them this
year. I live away from other homes and don't see many House Sparrows or
Starlings.

Subject: Odds and Ends
I was in the neighborhood anyway, so when the wind dropped to almost zero
Thursday evening, 2 March, I decided to listen for Lesser Prairie-Chickens
at my usual spot SW of Haviland in Kiowa County. In one hour I only
happened to hear 3 brief and distant LEPC calls, an awfully low amount of
activity for the date.



I've been making my usual rounds, however I have seen few birds of note in
the last several weeks. Sandhill Cranes have been migrating north in the
usual way, but I don't think I've seen more than 5,000 so far.



One sighting I should have mentioned earlier was a Northern Shrike in the SE
corner of Kingman County way back on 7 February. It was tame enough to pose
for a few distant photos. This sighting was just one mile north of Harper
County, a county for which there is apparently still no Northern Shrike
record.



We've had some extremely warm days with strong south winds where one could
imagine just about anything showing up, but so far I've just missed them, I
guess.

Subject: Say's Phoebe FOS and our largest flock of Cinnamon Teal
Sara and I made a short bird drive over to Kearny County this afternoon, 4 March 2017. Arriving at the Sheep Farm below Lake McKinney we found a fairly early Say's Phoebe sallying from some fence posts, it was 75 F. Above the dam we found the water level of the lake at near capacity. Duck numbers were very low. We flushed a small flock of teal from a pond below and adjacent to the SE corner of the dam. I could see there were several Cinnamon Teal as they flew north landing on the lake. I scoped the group and found five male Cinnamon Teal. That is the largest flock of Cinnamon Teal I have ever seen in Kansas. Penner. 2009. Birds of Cheyenne Bottoms shows a high count of 25 for CB; however I assume that was an all day count and not one flock. There were still about 4,000 Snow Geese at Deerfield Feeders on the Kearny County side. Hawk numbers were low with: 1-Kestrel, 7-Harriers, 4-Red-tails, and 1-Ferruginous.

Subject: Labette County birds
Each year I am surprised that Turkey Vultures are seen in more northern
counties than Labette before I see any. I believe they migrate from the
south and you do not have to go too far south in the winter to see them.



I heard and then saw a pair of E. Phoebes today (first heard yesterday,
March 3) They were looking for a place under our soffit to build their mud
nest.



There were approximately 100 ducks in three groups on a rock quarry near my
farm this afternoon. Mostly Ring Necks with a handful of American Widgeon
and three Red Heads.



On Feb 20, I saw a Horned Grebe in winter plumage on Big Hill at the main
launch ramp. I tried to make an Earred Grebe out of it but after looking at
the picture I took and further study I am sure it was a Horned. That gave
me all three grebes in Labette County.

I finally found some time to check Wyandotte County Lake this morning. Fairly good diversity with 55 species, without beating the bushes to much. Highlights included Hooded, Common, and Red-breasted Mergansers, Hermit Thrush, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, both Kinglets, and plenty of Killdeer. Also, tomorrow is opening day of trout season at the lake so it will be an incredibly busy spot if you are planning on a bird trip there.

Enjoy the weather this weekend!

Morning, all.

Next Thursday, March 9 I am returning to the Ozark Gateway Audubon Society
in Joplin, MO to present a free, all-ages, open to the public lecture about
the Great Horned Owls I have studied since 2005 in Forest Park in St.
Louis, MO.

This talk, "Forest Park Owls: Mating, Nesting and Owlets", will share what
I have been able to observe and document including: mating, nest selection,
feeding of the owlets, fledging and gradual maturation of owlets, and the
dispersal of the owlets with photos and videos to illustrate these
behaviors.

Here are the details:

Red-shouldered Hawks became regular from our Leavenworth County yard 3 or 4 years ago. They were not present here prior to that.

On February 24 we had a similar but less aggressive display over our yard. I know that the birds would vocalize primarily from the 'woods across the street' and I see them going to that area. I suspect that they are nesting there, hearing them all summer into the fall.

On the above date two birds took off from that area, circling in the morning to rise and drift, vocalizing often. A third bird flew nearby, aware. A bit later in the morning one of the birds was perched in a tree in the yard, quit close to the house. I haven’t seen him since. It seems that territories were being settled.

Subject: Early Bat
Paul's post about his early Brown Bat reminds me of an early season bat seen in the Gyp Hills of Oklahoma, 30 plus years ago. A group of us from the Sedgwick Co. Zoo were camping about 30 miles south of Waynoka at a roadside park in Major County. It was a cold night at about this time of year, when a red flying object was seen.

It was dusk, and my first impression was a small red bird, perhaps a Vermilion Flycatcher; then I realized it was a bat. Because of the brightness of the red, it had to be a male Red Bat. It left a lasting impression on me.


"The track of country over which we passed is stocked, not only with buffaloes, but numerous bands of wild horses, many of which we saw every day. The wild horse of these regions is a small, but very powerful animal; ... undoubtedly, it has sprung from a stock introduced by the Spaniards."

Hi Paul,

Big brown bats are said to be the most likely of our bats to become active during winter thaws (and we certainly have had lots of winter thaws this season). This seems to be especially true of the big brown bats with less than optimal fat reserves. Here is one paper that might be of interest:

Hi Folks,

I just had a new experience. I just captured a bat in my living room. I chased it around the house for awhile, finally threw a towel over it. I let it go in the back yard, just before sunset. I think it was a Big Brown Bat. I dont have any idea when or how it got into the house. Probably through the front door when I came in last night.

Is it to early for bats? Answer. I guess not.

had seen or heard Smith's Longspurs consistently for the las several days.
So we were hoping to get a new survey bird today. We didn't see or hear
them from the diagonal path. So the next step was to form a line and walk
the field. Still didn't seem to be working to promising. But a large light
colored floppy winged bird came up and we were all delighted to see a
Short-eared Owl. The owl is a new bird for the survey. We did not get the
Smith's Longspurs but did get a Short-eared Owl.

The Great Horned Owl may be off the eggs and have young ones. It was
sitting up higher.
The nest is in a tree on this 927 acres.
