Subject: Berwet BBS and Colwich wetland birds
I ran the Berwet BBS route this morning. (Sedgwick/Reno Counties). It
was the usual mix of missed species and "write-ins". Painted Bunting was
singing near Maize, Tufted Titmouse have been a first for this route. I
ended with 60 species. I took a brief detour to check the Colwich
Wetland north of Colwich. Blue-winged Teal, N. Shoveler and Am. Coot
were present in good numbers and may remain to breed. Breeding by any
of these species in Sedgwick County is notable and should be watched for
this summer, There were two Black-necked Stilts present also. Finding
this species in Sedgwick Co. is always noteworthy.

Subject: Burcham: Memorial Day
It was a beautiful morning along the Kaw. It was the first time I have walked here in a week. I did not hear the Yellow-throated Warbler this morning, which was here last Monday. I listed 45 species. The nesting Vireos, Orioles, Great-crested Flycatchers, Eastern Wood Pewees, and Carolina Wrens were all singing. The Cliff Swallows seemed more numerous and fewer birds were going in and out of the nests so many young may have have fledged. The Canada Geese in the center of the park had about 12 young at three different stages - the oldest are pretty larges. The Blue Heron was at its usual post below the bridge on second stream and may have a nest there.

I did find a couple of new birds.

Yellow-bellied Flycatcher - FOSB 1 popped out of the dense bushy foliage on the north side of the first stream below the parking lot.
Black-billed Cuckoo - FS 1 doing one of its distinctive call notes in the dense wooded area just north 0of where I saw the YBF (heard its notes 3 or four times and then again on return (an infrequent visitor to Burcham).

Yellow Warbler - 1 notes
Prothonotary Warbler - 1 singing on river trail (saw the female several times the week before last
Northern Parula - 2 or 3 along river trail singing
American Redstart - 1 F

Swainson's Thrush - 3- 1 singing
Pileated WP - 2 still very active

Subject: Central Kansas Trip Report
Kathy Carroll, Jennifer Hammett, Trent Reed and myself just finished up a
day trip to central Kansas.

At Quivira we enjoyed 34 Red-necked Phalaropes amongst many smaller
sandpipers on 170th. We then found both Godwits along the west side of the
Wildlife Loop, Cinnamon Teal on the interior portion of the loop, and a
Neotropic Cormorant perched among a handful of Double-Crested Cormorants.
Thanks to Dave and Linda Bryan's advice we enjoyed Black Rails calling in
the ditch mere feet away. Full checklists below.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37212936

We followed up on Scott Seltman's report this morning on the listserv; we
found a pair of Glossy Ibises amongst a couple hundred dark ibises south of
Larned. I was expecting a better lifer dance from Trent given the close
views, but perhaps the relief of a vanquished nemisis was exhausting. We
could not find the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks but stopped at Pawnee Rock
on our way back east for Burrowing Owls.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37217615

We enjoyed the calm evening at Cheyenne Bottoms, where we were fortunate to
see 2 chicks riding the back of an adult Western Grebe. These chicks were
two of eleven.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37223638

After dark we followed up on Chuck Otte's report and enjoyed Whip-per-will,
Chuck-will's-Widow, and Common Poorwill along Lyons Creek Road in Geary
County.

It was a great day of birding with friends; we are very thankful for trip
reports by others that helped us enjoy the birds.

Good Birding,

Subject: Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Bald Eagles in Doniphan County
On May 26 I saw a male STFC on a power line in Burr Oak Bottom, 10 miles north of Wathena. I noticed the long tail as we drove past and watched him sally out for bugs. The area is crop fields with a very few scattered trees. I think he will have a hard time finding a mate. Had been hoping to see one in the county since I moved here in 1971. I will try to get up there again to see if there is any sign of nesting.
The three active BAEA nests each have a large juvenile sitting on the edge. I expect them to be ready to leave soon.

Subject: Goessel BBS Route
I completed the Goessel BBS route today in ideal conditions. The only
addition that caught me off guard was an adult Bald Eagle just inside
McPherson County sitting and eating in a fallow field. Spotted Sandpiper
on the West Emma Creek was also new to the route. Dickcissels were present
at all but 4 stops including the last four where I have had them in the
past. For the first time in a long time I had no Red-headed Woodpeckers or
Turkey Vultures though I did see one of each between stops. I think my
total was about 43 species. Lots of single records including Warbling Vireo
(odd), Indigo Bunting (odd also) and Yellow-billed Cuckoo (variable on the
route by history). The pasture where I used to get Upland Sandpiper has
finally grown p enough that they are absent.

When I retire I'll sign up for a few more of these routes if they are
open. They are kind of a neat challenge.

In McIntyre Cove, on the Pott County side of Tuttle Creek, this morning, was a very plain but very vocal Alder Flycatcher, along with my first Yellow-billed Cuckoo of the year.

On a completely unrelated note, I was greatly saddened by the death of Gregg Allman yesterday. Rarely does a celebrity death affect me like that. RIP Gregg.

Subject: Oberlin (Decatur Co.) hybrid towhee
Yesterday evening (5/27/17) while birding at Sappa Park in Oberlin (Decatur Co.) in northwest KS I found a pair of towhees, the male an apparent SPOTTED x EASTERN TOWHEE hybrid and the female a pure-looking SPOTTED TOWHEE. The male gave both song and calls consistent with Spotted. They were hanging out at the far end of the low concrete dam accessed where the main park road dead ends at a circle near the campground. I took several photos and audio recordings of the bird that I'll upload to my eBird list soon. In the meantime I've posted some screenshots from my camera on the "Kansas Birding" Facebook group's page. A few BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS were also present at the park. On the drive in I also heard a calling WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE that was flagged in eBird, which I got an audio recording of.

Earlier in the afternoon at the Atwood WTP (Rawlins Co.) I found ~70 BLACK TERNS, 4 FORSTER'S TERNS, a few BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS, and high numbers of WESTERN and EASTERN KINGBIRDS, CLIFF SWALLOWS, and ORCHARD ORIOLES.

Good birding,

I came through Larned from the south about 8PM last night, so I thought I should take a look at the K-19 sandpits. As if on cue, 10 Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks flew past and circled around over the Arkansas River channel for awhile, then on towards the east. So while they don't seem to stay in one place very long, that also means they're constantly flying over too. They seem to want to be seen!

known where they have relocated to.

Oddly, there were very few birds at Harper's or Anthony's sewage ponds.

I've been spending lots of time near presumed breeding colonies of Cliff Swallows and this allows lots of time to look for that other species. Yesterday, 25 May, I finally saw one Cave Swallow with about 300 Cliffs six miles NW of Harper, Harper County. It landed just 10 feet away and gave good views of its throat and head. Now that I know they're around, I'll have the camera ready for a pic next time.

Not much else to report. Migration seems to be mostly over. I had a Greater Roadrunner east of Spivey, Kingman County, this morning, 26 May.

As we often do this time of year we went outside a few minutes ago (10:30 to
10:50 p.m.) and there was a lot of stuff flying over. Even living in town with
the interstate a mile away we could hear a lot of flight calls. Quite uncertain
what much of it was but there was a lot overhead. We even saw a small flock
of something - it was reflecting back light from the city but just far enough
away that we aren't sure what it was but they appeared white which narrows
the list down. Could be interesting to see what is around in the morning!

I received an email and photograph tonight of two Black-bellied
Whistling-Ducks perched on the roof of a commercial building in Liberal
(Seward County). The individual that sent me the photo said that they have
seen as many as three and they have been around for a couple of weeks.

This brings to at least 7 the number of counties where BBWD's have been
reported in the past few week (Butler, Gray, Jewell, McPherson, Clark,
Pawnee, and Seward). While this species has been expanding their range
north and have been found with greater regularity in Kansas in recent years,
this spring's sightings are quite extraordinary. I can't help but wonder how
much of this is due to some of the really big storms that have moved through
the state in the past couple of months. These were large storm systems and
were often pulling moisture (and air/wind) from deep out of the south.

Subject: Western KS 5/20-5/23
Too many highlights to mention them all. I birded in 20 or more counties
from Ellis to Morton to Wallace and back to Ellis.



One highlight was getting to bird an entire day with Jeff Calhoun. The
weather was perfect and the birds cooperative. It was the kind of day that
leaves a great impression on your memory.



I did find a mystery bird on a sewer pond. The light was not good, but I
was unable to decide what it was. It was similar size to a Coot, so should
have been easily identifiable. It was still there the next day when Jeff and
I stopped by. It is apparently an Eared Grebe that has no orange feathers
on the side of its head, no red on its flank, and no light coloring under
the tail. It looked to be a uniform very dark grey all over. I don't know
what else it could be, but it didn't act like any Eared Grebe I have ever
seen. It moved fast and jerky, chasing bugs on the surface. When it dove,
it stayed down for mere seconds. Its neck looked long and thin. I think
Jeff got a couple of photos.



I started today in Sharon Springs with the temperature at 40 degrees and a
good north breeze which increased as the morning progressed. Some dirt even
blew for a while. Yet, I had 84 species in Wallace County this morning!
Hamilton County was a target for Jeff and I on Sunday and I have 89 species
there on this trip.



One highlight of the trip was that Jeff found a Ladder-backed Woodpecker at
Bear Canyon in Stanton County. This has been my #1 Kansas nemesis bird for
quite a while. I had a Cordilleran Flycatcher in Hugoton on Monday, making
it two new Kansas birds for me on this trip!



Red-necked Phalaropes were sort of the bird of the trip. They seemed to be
practically everywhere - except for some counties! I had them in seven
counties and multiple birds (up to 16) at most locations. Three of the
counties (Logan, Gove, and Stevens) apparently do not have it on the current
list.



Other apparent new county records from this trip: White-faced Ibis in Gove
County. Ladder-backed Woodpecker in Stanton County. White-winged Dove,
Black-necked Stilt, Short-billed Dowitcher, and White-rumped Sandpiper are
not on the current Wallace County list. Broad-winged Hawk is not on the
Stanton list. Cordilleran Flycatcher is not on the Stevens County list.



Another bird that seemed to be everywhere was Western Wood-Pewee. Many
cooperated by calling.



Practically the last sighting of the trip was a Bald Eagle in Wallace
County. It was an adult bird sitting in a tree that also held a large nest.
It was not obviously an eagle nest, but large enough that it may be.



I apparently got 76 new county birds on this trip.



May has been a good month for me so far. I have 217 species in Kansas in
May. That is two more than I have in Ellis County after living here for
three years.

For those interested in the nest box plan I used, here it is
http://nestwatch.org/learn/all-about-birdhouses/birds/carolina-wren/

Update on the bluebirds: I opened the box today. The nest was damp AND
ants had moved in AND there were a couple beetles living in the box as
well. Maybe that is why they left the box early. I put a larger roof
on the box with drip lines cut all around the roof. I also made sure
the base was recessed enough so that water doesn't enter from the bottom.

Subject: Douglas and Geary Counties
Yesterday afternoon (5/22/17) I checked the Baker Wetlands-East Restoration east of Haskell Rd. near Lawrence (Douglas Co.) and had ~180 BLACK and ~10 FORSTER'S TERNS. I tried between bouts of rain for possible Nelson's Sparrows at the nearby Model Airplane Park wetlands trail near Clinton Lake Dam, but was unsuccessful in finding any. In the evening at the I-70 westbound Manhattan Rest Area (Geary Co.) I had several COMMON NIGHTHAWKS and BALTIMORE ORIOLES. Later at dusk as I headed westward, I heard a few CHUCK-WILLS-WIDOWS at Geary State Fishing Lake and a few HENSLOW'S SPARROWS just to the southeast along Skiddy West Rd. (Geary Co.). Nothing of note after dusk in nearby northwestern Morris Co., but finally colored in that county hole on my eBird profile map. ;)

Good birding,

Subject: Baker Wetlands Survey
Roger & Jan Boyd, Kylee Sharp, Gary Lechliter, Ben Gerrard, Scott Kimall, and Nicholaus Pumphrey participated in a great survey of Baker Wetlands, Lawrence,  Kansas. Top Billing  was 4 Virginia Rail chicks about 3-4 days old? They were running around on the top of duckweed! We heard both adults doing the grunt call, one on either side of the canal.  This is a 1/4 mile east of where we have been trying to call them at the willow tree just prior to where Mink Creek meets the hill and wall for the highway.  See the pictures on ebird.

Another cool moment was south of the pergola - heard a gallinule "keek" call - played it and the whinny call and three birds responded. They are most likely about to nest if not already.  
 And then back at the discovery center was two completely black juv. Bald Eagles over the Discovery Center, another one with a bunch of white blotching on the chest, and yet later an adult. 
Found a male Ring-necked Duck wondering if they might be nesting here.

Then getting Chestnut-sided, Redstart, Black-and-white, and Canada! Warblers.
A Nelson's Sparrow was seen.

The monthly Milford Lake bird walk will be Saturday, May 27th at 8:00 a.m.
Yes, I know this is Memorial Day weekend but it's the only free Saturday I've
had all month!

Participants will meet at the parking lot on the south end of Milford Lake
Dam, just across the highway from the Corps of Engineers Office. This
months walk will focus on nesting species and late/lingering migrants. The
walks usually last about two to three hours and involve moderate walking. If
you have binoculars or a bird book please bring them. The next bird walk is
tentatively scheduled for June 17, 2017. For more information drop me an
email.

If you have never been to one of these walks, DO NOT enter Milford Lake
into your GPS and expect to find us. You will wind up on the opposite side of
the lake from the dam in the middle of nowhere! Enter the address for the
Corps of Engineers office: 5203 North K-57 Junction City, Kansas.

I had a first in the yard today.

I went out this morning to find the bluebirds dive bombing a Bluejay.
When I investigated I found the blue jay pecking a baby bluebird. The
bluebird was dead. I think it was too young to fledge. Later I found the
blue jay pecking the dead bluebird and eating it. Finally he flew off
with what was left of it. I did find another baby blue bird alive and
well. But I just don't think they're big enough to even fly. I think
they fledged too soon. I suppose this happens a lot but it's the first
time I've witnessed it.

Subject: Western Tanager and Orioles
We had a beautiful ad male Western Tanager in our Garden City yard today, 21 MAY 2017, It only showed twice around 1pm and 7pm. At the last visit he was at one of the jelly feeders. We have not had one now in over a decade. They were most often recorded here in the 90's.

We have had a tremendous fallout or maybe just the time for a normal Shane yard stopover for orioles for the last 3 days, the19th thru 21 MAY 2017 of all three common species. My best estimates would be 15 - 20 Orchards, 12 - to 15 Baltimores and 4 - 5 Bullock's. Almost all of our Northern Orioles here in Garden City are hybrids they just lean one way or the other.

I have not read about any big waves of Swainson's Thrushes this year in Kansas. We got our very first one yesterday 20 MAY 2017 her in our yard, and he was an early singer.

We also had a fairly late immature Peregrine Falcon out at the nearly dry Sherman Playa 10 miles east of Garden City on 17 May 2017. We could not id the prey item, but by the behavior of the lone American Avocet, I'm sure it had lost a mate.

Good Bird Watching,

Subject: Western Flint HIlls birds 5-2`1
The weather forecast looked favorable so I decided to ignore domestic
chores and go on a spin to points north today as part of my continuing
effort to stay within 2000 total ticks of Henry A in the county listing
game. I talked Curt Van Boeing into going along.

Birds that triggered Ebird flags

Red-breasted Merganser-1 in Morris Co, along road below Council Grove
Dam outlet channel

Black-bellied Plover- a flock of 40 in Marion Co., all in full alternate
plumage, flying around looking for any shoreline at all. They finally
disappeared to the north. Super looks as they flew back and forth.
This was at the causeway at the upper end of the lake.

Other good finds

At Council Grove WTP in Morris Co. 150 Black Terns, 2 Forster's Terns,
40 Wilson's Phalaropes, four peep species about 2 miles east of WTP

Near junction of US 50 and K-150, Chase Co. about 150 shorebirds
including Pectoral, White-rumped and more

at Munker Creek area at Council Gove in Morris Co., Pileated WP,
Red-shouldered Hawk, Barred Owl, Prothontary Warbler

At Lake Kahola, Morris Co., two different singing Alder Flycatchers,
singing Eastern Towhee, many other passerines. Two Bald Eagles perched
near the nest at the west end of the lake. Several GPC leks between
K-177 and Kahola.

At the Jeep Rd Wetlands, Dickinson Co near Abilene, Stilt SP. Wilson's
Phalarope, Black Tern

In all I picked up almost 40 new county ticks. The warblers failed to
show but the shorebird bonanza made up for that shortfall.

Thanks to Barry and Ellen Jones for alerting us about the Larned Back-pedaling Whistling-Ducks. We saw two flying west up Pawnee River at the Broadway bridge. We followed them west towards the city park but lost them.

We headed back towards the sandpit along K-19 and then saw 7 more flying west. Four of those eventually circled back and flew south over Ward Feed Yard. Anyway, a pretty exciting 30 minutes of Larned birding and at least 9 BBWDs!

Subject: Clark Co. late Sandhill Crane and May 16-19 recap
This past week (May 16-19, 2017) I was conducting bird surveys for work near Minneola (Clark County). The most interesting sighting I had was a lone SANDHILL CRANE on a flooded field on the west side of County Rd. 5 south of Hwy. 54 just west of Minneola on May 17, which seemed very late for the species to be this far south anywhere in the Great Plains region at this date.

Through the week I occasionally saw small shorebird flocks around Minneola, but the largest concentration was on Tuesday (May 16) with ~340 STILT SANDPIPERS at the playas near CR 5 and Rd. C just northwest of Minneola. I saw single BLACK TERNS at the Hwy. 283-Rd. B playa just north of Minneola on May 18 and at a stock tank north of Ashland on May 19.

During daily visits to Clark SFL throughout the week, highlights included a few MISSISSIPPI KITES, a singing GREATER ROADRUNNER, a few YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOOS, BARRED OWL, RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE, several LEAST FLYCATCHERS, a couple of RED-EYED VIREOS, a couple of ROCK and BEWICK'S WRENS (the latter observed carrying away a fecal sac from their presumed nest site), GRAY CATBIRD, TENNESSEE WARBLER, a female AMERICAN REDSTART, a singing CASSIN'S SPARROW, several PAINTED BUNTINGS, and several ORCHARD and BALTIMORE ORIOLES (including one apparent hybrid Baltimore x Bullock's Oriole) among many other expected species. Unfortunately I saw one female Baltimore Oriole with some fishing twine stuck on it, which was also starting to construct its nest with mostly fishing twine. Please pick up fishing line when you see it and educate your family and friends who go fishing about picking up their twine...wildlife that get caught in twine are often injured or die as a result.

At Big Basin Prairie Preserve and St. Jacob's Well south of Minneola on May 18, highlights included over a dozen NORTHERN BOBWHITES, a dozen COMMON NIGHTHAWKS, three COMMON POORWILLS, a couple of singing CASSIN'S SPARROWS, almost 50 singing GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS, a CHIPPING SPARROW, and two CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS among several other expected species. One of the NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRDS at St. Jacob's Well was teasing me with periodically making very convincing Veery call notes within its repertoire.

Here are some details on current conditions in Clark Co. All the playas in the area are full with water and farm fields partially flooded, and even more rain fell this week. A few less-maintained county roads were inaccessible due to deeper pools across the roads and many roads have wet patches from spillover from the flooded fields/playas. Clark State Fishing Lake is overflowing and the road crossing the creek below the dam is flooded and cannot be safely crossed currently, so to access both sides of the lake you would need to go north to Bloom area and access either via CR 14 or CR 25 (the main paved road) from Hwy. 54, or south of Minneola via Rd. G off Hwy. 283. The best remnant habitat after this spring's fire is on the east side though. The area around Clark SFL and along the road south to Ashland is recovering since the fire and is currently very green with lots of wildflowers and yuccas in bloom, although grasses are still short. Regularly check weather forecasts and radar maps if you travel this way anytime soon. A few severe thunderstorms with accompanying issued tornado watches went through the region this week, including a tornado warning with funnel clouds in Minneola on Thursday (no tornado confirmed, but heard someone's barn was destroyed northeast of town). The dark, ominous clouds in rotation were a sight to behold!

Good birding,

Subject: Burcham: Sunday
It was a beautiful morning along this Kaw. The first half of the walk was the busiest it has been on any walk this year for me (but not as productive as Peter Grund's earlier big day in the same area). Warblers and Vireos were popping out everywhere - seemed like a fallout of sorts. The greatest activity was on the south half of the river trail. Reminiscent in movement and visible birds of active spring days at "home" in New Haven's West Rock Park, Mill River trail - only no Black-throated Blue, Golden-winged, or Worm-eating Warblers today. I saw many females and there were many Yellow warblers. I likely missed other species. However, the activity shut down suddenly and nearly completely by the time I got back to the north side of the trail (only the usual suspect breeders sang). I listed 54 species.

Acadian Flycatcher - FS 1

Warblers
Yellow-throated - still present but singing high in the cottonwoods just north of the second stream (from the parking lot nearer of Mass Bridge)
Yellow - 20+ many silent but still a lot of song and notes
Chestnut-sided - 1 singing near the first stream in Cottonwood
Northern Parula - 2 singing
Wilson's Warbler - 5 singing
American redstart- 2- one singing & one female
Tennessee 2 silent
Nashville - 1 dull plumage
Orange-crowned - 1 singing
Prothonotary - 2 - the female was working leaves on low vines just below the south stream
Northern Waterthrush - not positive but I thought I heard one song in bog near south stream

Red-shouldered Hawk - 1 notes
Alder Flycatcher - 1 single song
Philadelphia Vireo - 3 all seen
Yellow-throated Vireo - 1
Red-eyed Vireo - 8 singing
Warbling Vireo - 20+ lots of scolding

Swainson's Thrush - 5 all singing - numbers dropping
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher - 1 notes
Eurasian Collared Dove - 1 singing near Mass Bridge - since the nest has been move eastward I have nt heard it often
Fish Crow 1
Pileated WP 1 or 2 - still very active; heard at both ends and middle of the park

Subject: Comanche Co. Black Rails
Around 2pm today (5/20/17) I heard two Black Rails respond to playback on the south side of the road at the Ave. L Wetlands just east of Coldwater (Comanche Co.) where Jeff Calhoun originally reported the species about a week ago (thanks Jeff!). They were only doing the nasal "ik" and growl calls. I think I heard at least one King Rail among a few Virginia Rails doing the similar descending, harsh "kek" calls (sounded lower pitched to my ear). Neither were doing other calls in response to playback and the gusty winds weren't helping. One Sora was also heard. Here's my eBird list with the exact location, which is a hotspot in eBird:

Greetings,

I haven't had much of a chance to bird Cherokee County since the weekend of
KOS. Now that I've put spring field trip season to bed at the nature
center, I may get some birding in.
Noteworthy this morning, after another round of heavy rains, was a
Blue-headed Vireo in my neighbor's yard, and the Bewick's Wren hanging out
around my yard again.
Also, as I headed in to work, I noticed 10 Turkey Vultures circling over
Schermerhorn Park. I slowed down to turn into the park and there were two
Black Vultures eating on a fresh armadillo road kill on the east shoulder
of HWY 26, just north of the park entrance. They disappeared for a little
bit, but I saw one of them fly through the park toward the carcass again
around 11am.

Good birding,

Subject: Oak Park, Wichita
Hi Folks,

I think the spring migration in Oak Park is over, here in Wichita. I haven’t heard or seen a warbler or any other pass through migratory bird, in 3 days. I hope I get a few stragglers, but I’m not planning on it. Except for the many early Yellow-rummped and Orange-crowned around the 20th of April, there have be very few Warblers going through Oak Park and most had only one sighting. I have only seen 10 warbler species this spring, I normally average 20, but last year was less than normal also. Its not just warblers, as many other species are much less than normal.

I did see the single Wild Turkey in the park today, I thought it had left a week ago.

I also got the best soaking I have ever had in Oak Park today (Friday). A sudden down pour drove me, half soaked, to a large oak that generally keeps me somewhat dry. It was one of those “frog strangler" rain falls you hear about. The rain was coming down so heavy, the dirt paths, had a couple of inches of rain on top of them, totally flooding my shoes. But, then thunder and lightning got real close, so I had to run the last 100 yards to my car, arriving absolutely totally soaked. You don’t want to be standing under the tallest trees in the whole area, when there is lightning. Ironically in the back seat of my car, was a waterproof poncho I recently purchased, to keep me dry for exactly what had just happened. On the bright side, my old beat up “Tilleys" hat did keep my head mostly dry.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

It was a nice morning along the Kaw despite variable weather and especially heavy train traffic. I listed 50 species and a few migrants.

Yellow-billed Cuckoo - FS1 calling & showed itself.

Yellow-throated Warbler - 1 singing at first stream and moving southward & back
Chestnut-sided Warbler - 1 singing in the same tree - think I had both in sight at the same time at one point
Prothonotary warbler - 2 - best observation of the morning was watching the female Prothonotary work the underside of leaves and devouring insects on vined growth at the base of 3 trees below SE of the south stream. She allowed me to approach about 15 feet and was unfazed by my presence; she patiently operated doing her Audubon contortions as if I was not present. Quiet beautiful it was. Wonder if she just arrived or has already been with the nearby male.
Yellow Warbler - 15+ lots of notes
Wilson's warbler 1 singing
Northern Parula - 2 singing
American Redstart - 1 singing
Tennessee Warbler - 1 singing emphatically

Swainson's Thrush - 16 heard more song from them today than I have all spring
Yellow-=throated Vireo - 1

Did not hear the Scarlet or Summer Tanager this morning. Heard my first Common Nighthawk in downtown Lawrence last night. Bill Staples, who lives downtown, said they have been there for about two weeks.

Subject: Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira 5/17 report
Yesterday a group of 7 Kansas City area birders took off on a one-day
mad-dash to central Kansas to visit Quivira NWR and and Cheyenne Bottoms.
Thanks to Joseph Miller's report the previous night we detoured through
Hutchinson, but ultimately were unsuccessful in finding the
previously reported Tricolored Heron. A couple of Playas held shorebirds
however and we enjoyed the quick visit to Reno County, which included
meeting Allen Asmussen.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36965301
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36931291

Quivira NWR (Stafford County) held some of the birds reported from the past
week, but many had either moved on in days since the report or with the
previous night's storm. Highlights include a Cinnamon Teal on the inside of
the Wildlife Loop and 3 Sanderlings, a Black Rail, an American Bittern
walking across the road, and many small shorebirds to sort through along
170th.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36965179

At Cheyenne Bottoms (Barton County) we had a Western Grebe in Pool 1C,
Neotropic Cormorants in 4A, Cinnamon Teal and a small selection of
shorebirds in 3A, both Bitterns in the southwest corner of Pool 2, and a
Glossy Ibis north of the Inlet Canal. At The Nature Conservancy property
north of the bottoms we watched Cattle Egrets eat snakes and had a King
Rail at the observation tower. The King Rail and Glossy Ibis were lifers
for some of the group members, so high fives were exchanged throughout.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36965139
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36965127

Thanks to Nick Varvel for listing all observations on eBird, Mick McHugh
for sharing years of experience, and to Marky Mutchler, Kathy Carroll,
Micky Louis, and John Mallery for the extra sets of eyes, ears, and time
together.

Good Birding,

Subject: Burcham: Thursday
It was a lovely early morning along the Kaw. It was sunny, mild, with the smell of honeysuckle in the air. I listed 57 species. Peter Grund kindly interrupted his run to walk me to the Yellow-throated Warbler - the bird has been there in the cottonwood next to the first stream since Sunday singing loudly in search of a mate I guess. I misidentified it, and did not work hard enough to find it. Thank you Peter! I can only recall this species being reported twice in Burcham even though it is relatively common 30 miles or so east - Mobe Rucker found one about 30 years ago and a former K-State ornithologist identified one about 20 years ago. Both walked me to the bird. Slow learner am I.

It seemed very active near the head of river trail in the early morning - the arrival of two sitting lawn mowers cutting along the river cut down the activity and hearing. Although the Yellow-thorated still could be heard.

Yellow-throated Warbler FS1 - still singing when I departed the park
Chestnut-sided Warbler - FS1 - a few assertive sons and then soft notes - always worry about confusing this with a yellow warbler, but I finally found it
Yellow Warbler - 7 - more singers again
Wilson's - 3 singing
Northern Parula - 2 singing
Tennessee Warbler - 1 singing
American Redstart - 1 soft notes

Philadelphia Vireo - 1 identified - heard two other likely ones but the RE Vireo are varied enough I want to see them

Spotted Sandpiper -1
Ruby-throated Hummingbird - 1 cooperative sitting
Least Flycatcher - 1
Traills Empid - 1 silent
Eastern Wood Pewee - 6 calling
B Kingfisher - 1
Cedar Waxwings - many - lots of their notes at the head of the river trail; sever flocks
Barred Owl - 1 calling
Pileated - 2 likely still very active
Swainson's Thrush -12+ hearing their first note all around the park
Summer Tanager 2 - in same areas for days 1 singing at north end of the; 1 adult female, western (?) bright yellow throat and undertail & midsection light -
Scarlet Tanager- singing on north side of boathouse crossrood

Fish Crow - 1 hearing them less in the last few days

The Mullberries are ripe in several spots - watched Robins, Cedar Waxwings, and Orioles feasting - a Baltimore bright male gulped down the bears - in the bright sunlight he glowed.

I spent 15 minutes at Cedar Creek Cemetery, north of Manhattan, at 11:30 this morning. Got Black-throated Green Warbler, Canada Warbler, a silent Alder/Willow Flycatcher, and a very unsilent pair of Woodducks on the creek. Several other usual suspects for the time of year, including Indigo Hunting, Red-eyed Video, Carolina Wren.
Earlier in the morning I had Blue Grosbeak, Common Yellowthroat, Dickcissel and others near Wildcat Park west of town on Anderson. Lots of wind both places.

I know it is not just a short drive away but weekend meetings happen about
twice a month in the Topeka area. We are a small but dedicated group of

Subject: 2 Glossy Ibises at Quivira NWR (5/15/17)
Yesterday (5/15/17) I found two apparent GLOSSY IBISES in a flock of White-faced near the spillway on the south side of the Wildlife Drive at Quivira National Wildlife Refuge (Stafford Co.). One brighter adult and another duller bird (subadult?). No sign of the previously reported whimbrels or turnstones at Big Salt Marsh along 170th St. It was very windy and I again dipped on hearing any black rails. Here's the eBird list I did for Wildlife Drive with photos of the ibises:

Their family goes to the same school as our kids and I'm working to get her
connected into the local birding community. My wife suggested that she
check out the Wings Over Weston festival. I'm hoping in time that she will
be able to connect with some of the women in our fantastic local birding
community. She's joining my kids and I to do some birding this evening.

Subject: The Nature Conservancy's Birding Challenge
All Nature Conservancy programs were invited to participate in a cross-organization “Birding Challenge.” The goal was to count as many species of birds, in one day, on lands and waters that The Nature Conservancy had a role in protecting. Kansas accepted this challenge and 46 participants surveyed 12 sites across the state of Kansas on Saturday, May 13. Kansas was competing in three categories : #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 final results will not be in for about a week but as it stands today. Kansas is ranked second behind Texas in category #2 and the Cheyenne Bottoms Preserve is ranked first in category #1

To see them fly against the cerulean and golden skies during a Kansas sunset.

Peter and I birded Fitch this morning. Despite the warm and windy
conditions we listed 12 warbler species, including Blackburnian (2),
Chestnut-Sided (1), Mourning (1), Wilson's (1) and Blackpoll (2). We also
saw a nice Philadelphia vireo. Also 1 Y-B Cuckoo; seems like either they
are late arriving this year or their numbers at Fitch are way down.

I went to Baker this morning to try for the common gallinule. I did hear
it, and saw a least bittern in the same area. Other birders were around
and reported seeing a magnolia warbler, so I went in search of that and
also found it. This was located along the trail going south from the
first pavilion or shelter. The gallinule and bittern were in or near
grebe pond which is SW of the pergola.

Also at the pond where we park the cars there were 2 black terns flying
around. East on 1250 I saw a few forster's terns and 3 white-faced ibis.
Lots of other birds were seen along the hike.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36875237


Seeing Whimbrels here in Kansas never gets old! Still great shorebird habitat on the north side of 170th, but the marsh is definitely getting full. Both low water crossing on the Wildlife Drive Loop had good flow across them into the center part of the refuge. I hope it doesn't rain really heavily on the are this week - could use a break for a little while!

A mother who attended Wings Over Weston, this past Saturday, wrote this about her experience. I thought some of you might like to read it, because this is why we do Wings Over Weston. Each year, we fluctuate between 600 and 800+ attendees which makes us the largest one-day birding festival in the entire Midwest with a unique niche - children. This year was another success. Thank you to all those who donated reading material and volunteered. Our success would not be possible without you.

From Angel Perkins, the mother of Victoria, a birder:

"I don't have to be lonely in this bird thing anymore." Victoria - age 11

Guys. You have no idea what it feels like to search and search for something that interests your kid who has no interests - except birds. She won't do sports. She won't do clubs. She won't (willingly) do any type of activity unless I make her. She only likes to sit - and watch birds. In a family that is always on the go, this type of activity doesn't fit in very well. There isn't an abundance of ... bird watching groups for tweens to join. It's a rather isolated interest. So, I can't tell you what it feels like to find an event that I can take her to that she enjoys. She must have said "I'm so happy!" at least 10 times.

Matthew (her brother) finally got a taste of what she goes through every single time we drag her to one of his sporting events - she's suffered through countless years of baseball and some seasons of basketball and soccer too. He hated every minute of it. And secretly, we were all glad. For once, the day wasn't about what he liked and enjoyed. She got to be the star. And that made me sad all over again that she very rarely gets to have a day like this because these type of events are so hard to find.

So, let me tell me what she got to experience today. She got to watch them catch wild birds, pet them, weigh and measure them and band them so they can be tracked as they migrate. She got to take a one-on-one nature walk with a Master Bird person (I forgot the real title) who knew every bird call you can think of and taught her ways to learn their songs. She got to make a hummingbird feeder. She got to talk with women who are in the wildlife reserve field and they shared with her what path they took in high school and college and how they ended up in their career fields today. She met the organizer of the event who I had called prior to going and she welcomed Victoria with open arms - literally! - and hugged her to death and showered her with gifts. Not a throw away tchotchke gifts but two wonderful keepsake books. The equivalent of a Bird Bible -to identify all birds in the area complete with pictures and descriptions and the other a Birder's field diary and life list for her to record every bird she has ever encountered - one day this book will be filled with bird names and dates and descriptions of how she found the bird.

I feel like she has found her people. Today was a very good day.

Subject: Marais des Cygnes on Saturday - Second report
Hello All,

I thank Dave for his report from Saturday at Marais des Cygnes, I was just
as slow to report from the same area and likely would have forgotten
without his reminder. I joined Mick McHugh and Micky Louis to support the
Nature Conservancy Challenge, yet quite thankful that another group was
able to get out in the morning as I had a work commitment and we only
started around 2:30 in the afternoon and missed almost all warblers. We
spent over 3 hours along the NWR east of the headquarters, where we found
many birds, the best arguably being a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and a late
Song Sparrow.

Rest Stop Checklist - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36824035
NWR proper checklist - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36824039

After a pitstop in Pleasanton we spent the remaining daylight checking out
units F and units G. We observed many of the same species at F as Dave
reported where only a flyover American Bittern was of additional note. At
Unit G we spent last listening to Chuck-will's-widows.

Unit F Checklist - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36824043
Unit G Checklist - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36824052

It was a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends tallying over 100
species.

Good Birding,

Malcolm Gold (Overland Park, Kansas)

Subject: Warbler day at Marais des Cygnes on Saturday
A late report due to a busy weekend: A group of us had a great birding day at Marais des Cygnes Wildlife Area on Saturday, May 13, participating in the Nature Conservancy Birding Challenge. We had a terrific warbler day with 18 species, really good because of the species seen, and 107 total species which included Common Gallinule and a nice selection of shorebirds.

Our birding group started with Dean Goodell and Carolyn Schwab, brother & sister. Dean is a strong Nature Consevancy supporter, got Carolyn to get some birders together and it was Dean, Carolyn, Dave Williams, Nancy Leo and Henry Armknecht, who was available in our part of the state for his birding company on this Saturday.

Warblers listed were 2 Canada, 1 Golden-winged, 1 Blackburnian, 2 Chestnut-sided, 1 Magnolia, 3 Louisiana Waterthrush, 2 Black-and-white, 10 Prothonotary, 6 Tennessee, 6 Kentucky, 9 Common Yellowthroat, 5 American Redstart, 10 Northern Parula, 4 Yellow, 2 Blackpoll, 2 Yellow-throated, 1 Wilson’s and 1 Yellow-breasted Chat. A representative of each species was seen well, except for the Chat, with many of the special ones giving extended looks. Almost all of the warbler activity was in Unit G. A north / south stretch of road at the north end of Unit G was a hotspot on this day, first discovered by the Varvel group of birders but then worked over well by all.

A Common Gallinule was in the wetland at Unit A East, seen from the little spur road that leads to the boat ramp.

A selection of shorebirds was in Unit F at the far south end of the south unit and near the boat ramp which consisted of Killdeer, 2 Hudsonian Godwit, 1 Stilt Sandpiper, 2 Dunlin, Baird’s, White-rumped, Pectoral and Semipalmated Sandpipers, Wilson’s Phalarope, Spotted Sandpiper, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and 100 - 150 other individuals that could have been worked over further.

4 Hooded Merganser were in Unit F South resting on a concrete slab and two of them appeared to be young of the year.

25+ Black Terns were in Unit A East,
An adult Bald Eagle was seen on the oxbow road carrying a fish and flying northwest, presumably to a nest,
Mississippi Kite - 1
Cedar Waxwings - 2 small flocks, total of 10 - 20 birds.

Plus the usual selection of waders, waterfowl, woodland and some grassland species. A beautiful weather day with calm winds helped greatly in finding and seeing the birds.

The eBird checklist is a single list for the day on the refuge and the roads immediately adjacent to the refuge:

Hit the warbler hot spots at Neosho Wildlife Area this morning. Birds of
note:

Magnolia Warbler
Ovenbird
Blackburnian Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Canada Warbler
Bay-breasted Warbler (new to the county list I believe)

Also finally knocked off my county nemisis bird, Mississippi Kite. It
appeared to be migrating as it circled gradually making it's way out of
sight to the north. I think this will also be new to the Co list. Very
birdy overall, best for warblers this year, and any day you can add 2 new
county birds to your list it's a great one. Still no mudflats showing due
to recent rains.

Subject: Labette County birds
Very birdy this beautiful morning here on the farm. The Walnut and Pecan
trees in my yard had many warblers flitting around. Positive id's were
Blackburnian, American Redstart (many), Orange-crowned, Philadelphia Vireo
and many that would not hold still long enough for me to get good id. Lots
of buzzing and calling. Wish I had gone out earlier. Also have at least
two pair of Baltimore Orioles observed building nests, Eastern Phoebe on
nest-should hatch young any day, E. Wood Peewee, small flycatcher sp., and
all the usual feeder birds. I have had 2 to 4 Spotted Sandpipers hanging
around my front pond for about three weeks. They like to use my dock for
"homebase" so easy to observe. We had 4 eggs in a Killdeer nest along the
edge of our drive. The nest is about 25' from the dock on the front pond.
They had been taking turns setting on the eggs. Yesterday the eggs were
gone. A predator had them for dinner. It appears they are going to try
again. This happens about every other year.

It was nearly a perfect morning along the Kaw. Great weather but pretty slow migrant birding. Found many of the same migrants in the same locations. I listed 58 species on my walk.

RT Hummingbird - FS 1 - it seemed to be having fun buzzing a Robin that appeared to be a bit disturbed, but not so much to move.

Yellow Warbler - 15 songs, notes, looks
Northern Parula - 3 singing
Prothonotary Warbler 1 singing
Tennessee Warbler 2 singing
Wilson Warbler - 1 singing
Blackpoll Warbler - 1 soft notes
Orange-crowned warbler - 1 late & bright

Red-shouldered Hawk - 1 calling
Red-tailed Hawk - 1
Yellow-throated Vireo - 2 - operating close by at eye-level picking insects off leaves in Audubon poses; its yellow throat glowed in the morning sun. Aesthetics of a common species on a slow walk - nice....
Great-crested Flycatcher - 5 calling - numbers increasing
Eastern Wood Pewee - 1 calling
Fish Crow - 4 they have been daily regulars
Pileated WP - also have heard or seen on every walk

Observed a Gray Catbird eating not yet mulberries; 3 tiny Canada goslings under the mother with a Great Blue Heron lurking at the pond; B Oriole, Warbling Vireo, Carolina Wren song and chatter everywhere

It was a nice early morning along the Kaw. However, it was not very active with migrants. It did get a bit busier just before I departed so it is possible that migrants and were just starting to stir. I listed 51 species.

Summer Tanager - FSB 2
Blackpoll Warbler -FS 3 - 2 singing and one operating low & allowing good looks. This is about the latest first of the season on this species that I recalltwo

Yellow-rumped Warblers- 4 females
Yellow Warbler - 11 singing (think they are less numerous)
Northern Parula - 3 singing
Tennessee Warbler - 1 singing (this species has been scare & usually comes through in substantial numbers)

Spotted Sandpipers - 3 by the pond (scarce on the river because of high water)
Warbling Vireo - 16+- lots of song and scolding
Red-eyed Vireo - 10 - more numerous
Yellow-throated Vireo 2 singing
Baltimore Orioles - 17 - lots of song and scolding
Fish Crow - 1 - more numerous this year - have hear on every walk

Pileated - 2 - saw one on the extreme SW corner of Sandraw Shaw park near the pond with hospital in site and I'm guessing this on of a different pair than the one seen close to the river and that nests on the east side.

Subject: A few from Bourbon Co.
It's been a few years since I set off on a walk with the sole purpose of
birding. I had forgot how enjoyable it is, especially this time of year.

A few highlights, in order of heart-rate elevation:

1. Blackburnian Warbler (male)
2. Located a RT Hummingbird nest and watched Mama-to-be feather her nest
for several minutes.
3. Louisiana Waterthrush
4. Common Yellow-throat
5. Close encounter with Barred Owl taking a rather severe beating from
half a dozen Blue Jays
6. Blue Grosbeak
7. Indigo Bunting (male and female flirting on a stalk of grass)
8. Summer Tanager (male and female)
9. Red-shouldered Hawk (turning and turning in the widening gyre)

Glimpsed plenty of others without positive ID. Warbler birding is a tough
business.

Say, if anyone knows a good spot to find a Scarlet Tanager in these parts,
its at the top of my lifer list.

Subject: McPherson Wetlands 5/10/17
Hi KS Birders,
I'm in McPherson visiting my mother, and had a chance to slip out to McPherson Wetlands from 5:30 to 7 this evening. Numerous American Bitterns were calling with their strange grandfather clock rendition! Highlight was 4 Black-necked Stilts, all flyovers, but they seems to be hanging within the refuge. Also had 4 Black-bellied Plovers. See complete list below. I'll be out there again at sunrise tomorrow.

I was unable to locate the subject bird again this evening, but the birds were moving around quite a bit between the different patches of vegetation. I tried callback for this species, but it was unresponsive.

Other highlights were a VEERY with a few Swainson's Thrushes feeding on the mulberries near the entrance to the Founder's Park parking lot and a male BLACKPOLL WARBLER with several Tennessee and Nashville, and a few Orange-crowned and Yellow Warblers. I was able to get photos of the Blackpoll.

Here's my full list in eBird:

Subject: Wichita Area Birders
Please let me know if you see Least Terns frequenting Wichita area locations
over the next 3 months. Right now is the season for Least Terns to arrive
but I've not seen any on the river in their usual haunts. I'll be
monitoring the historic colony but last year we had total flood-outs on the
river and no successful nesting. We had so few birds attempt to nest that
we were wondering if they moved to another location. They have done this
4-5 times over the years. Any sighting reports will be appreciate.
Especially if located in an area with sand and gravel nesting possibilities.
Thanks!!

Subject: Chickadees Nesting
I am so excited. The chickadees started nest building and have been at
it all day. They were especially busy this morning. The female (I
assume) was going back to my garden to get grass clippings. She would
drop off the material in the nest box and upon exiting the male would
enter the box. Sometimes when she returned with a beak full he would
still be in the box. They are nesting right on my patio (opposite of
the flickers). I tried to give them some space, but when they see me
they don't really seem to mind. Their nest box is about 10 feet from my
easy chair. At one point a red-bellied woodpecker showed up at their
box. They immediately chased him away. Nest building has continued
this afternoon and evening, with smaller beak fulls of material.

I had a feeling they were going to nest build so I had the camera
ready. Unfortunately the camera focused on a plant instead birds.
Still you can see the activity and it is a joy to watch the industrious
chickadees at work. I especially like the red-bellied WP making an
appearance.

This morning at 9:40am I found a bay-breasted warbler in Shunga Park in Topeka. The bird gave me great looks and came as near as 15-20 feet from me. It was an adult male with chestnut throat and sides and a dark face.

Tomorrow morning I'm going back to the area. This time I'll have a camera hoping to document the bird with a photo. I'll be at McDonald Field at 8:00am (2698 SW Murrow Ct., Topeka, KS 66611). If anyone is interested in joining me for potentially seeing this rare warbler, meet me there. No guarantees!

If you want to try on your own, email me and I'll give you more specific directions.

Have a good, birdy day,

It has been interesting to watch how the birds at my feeders have
changed over the last couple of days. The 10 or so Harris's sparrows I
had seem to have gone now. More female orioles have arrived, as have
more male indigo buntings and finally a few female indigo buntings.

Nice colorful fun at the feeders these days.

While running some errands yesterday evening, I gave the Tyson Sewege ponds in Emporia a quick scan. Along with many Black Terns, some common shorebird species, and a few Yellow-headed Blackbirds, I was surprised to see two Black-necked Stilts! Presumably, these are the same individuals I saw over 3 weeks ago, on 16 April 2017.

I was back to the loop I do at Ft Leavenworth on May 9th having last been there on May 2nd.

There were new arrivals of course and higher numbers in some of the migrant species. I have not come across any real warbler diversity yet. Birds of interest:

Nortern Bobwhite - 2, haven’t seen or heard them for a while up here.
Acadian Flycatcher - 1
Blue-headed Vireo - 1
Warbling Vireo - 10, they seemed to be numerous.
Bell’s Vireo - 6 FOS, present in the trees on the levee road, easy to hear and then to see.
Swainson’s Thrush - 16, frequently encountered and at home also.
Wood Thrush - 11, might have been more. We had one at home again in the evening.
Yellow-breasted Chat - 6 at 4 locations, present along the levee road at various places,
Summer Tanager - 8
Scarlet Tanager - 3
Clay-colored Sparrow - 1
Lincoln’s Sparrow - 1
Orchard Oriole - 7, in the bottoms.

Ok, yes, I am retired now.

I did a briefer than usual morning walk along the Kaw. The city was spraying weeds along the river trail starting before sunup. I found fewer migrants on my walk. It was mostly breeding birds this morning.

Yellow Warbler - 12 still numerous
Wilson's Warbler - 1
Prothonotary Warbler 1
Norther Parula - 4

Pileated WP - 2 the pair were working together and calling and showing in the center of the park.
Eastern Kingbird - the pair was working together and twittering nearby
Dickcissel - still hearing them over the Kaw

Fish Crow - 5 - one circled and called over the river trail and heard another calling across river. Later saw 4 flyover toward east and one carrying what appeared to be nesting material.

Subject: Hooded Merganser with chicks, Marais des Cygnes
Friday, May 5, while on my way to Pittsburg KOS I birded Marais des Cygnes Wildlife Area, Unit G, and came upon a Hooded Merganser with two chicks riding on its back! The picture is in the ebird list:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36572066 <http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36572066>

Location of the sighting: I was on the east/west road on the south end of Unit G with the merganser calmly swimming by some distance off shore.
The adult female dove at one point while I watched, dropping into the water grebe-like, without a big thrust, leaving the two chicks to bob in the water. After 30 seconds or so it returned to the surface near the chicks, who were now a few feet from the adult. The two chicks scurried onto her back and they were back to the condition where I first saw them.

Hooded Merganser is an infrequent nester in eastern & central Kansas, so I was fortunate to come across this one to document.

Hi Folks,

I walked Oak Park today for many hours, I saw or heard only a few warblers, their species already seen. There appeared to be more Vireos than Warblers, that included a nice Philadelphia Vireo easily ID’ed, my first this year.

Hopefully, tomorrow will show more warblers moving through the park.

Preliminary report.
Atcha Nolan, Bill Langley, Curt van Boening, Kevin Groeneweg and I found
121 species in 14 hours of birding in Butler county. We found some good
birds but had some big misses. Best bird was probably the multiple
Henslow's sparrows we found this morning east of Latham and then a greater
prairie chicken flew over the road. We scored on the shorebirds with 13
species but had only 9 species of warblers and 3 vireo.
Great day of birding for a great cause.

This afternoon Micky Louis, Kathy Carroll, John Mallory and myself visited
Emily Brosnan‎'s back yard to see the male Lazuli Bunting in Shawnee.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36690675

Since I was sending a bird report, I include one from Sunday I attempted to
send from my phone in the field but it was rejected due to my ignorance and
using multiple emails through Droid's email app.

Sunday Report -----

I had a nice variety of warblers at Overland Arboretum this morning along
the south side of the stream at the far east end just below the Rocky Ridge
trail. The highlight was a male Hooded Warbler calling.

Subject: LV County yad 5/8 - Fish Crow
I was at our Leavenworth County rural home all day today, May 8, mostly outside, and surveyed the birds throughout the day, ending with 44 species. FOS - first of the season for me in LV County.

Fish Crow was heard overhead with its distinctive nasal, two-noted ah-ah call. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a new yard bird. This is the first one I’ve heard in LV County. We are in the central part of the county near Hwy 92.

4 warbler species today, Wilson’s, Nashville, Northern Waterthrush and Black-and-white.

Eastern Towhee, Brown Thrasher, Hairy Woodpecker, Cooper’s Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk and Summer Tanager were all present and showing breeding behavior to one degree or another.

Swainson’s Thrush - 5, Least Flycatcher - 3 FOS, Rose-breasted Grosbeak - 3, Gray Catbird - 1, Indigo Bunting - 1, Baltimore Oriole - 2, Lincoln’s Sparrow - 2.

Red-headed Woodpecker is a new arrival in the neighborhood. It’s been here 2 weeks now and I’ve seen two birds together and thinking about it.

RT Hummingbird - it appears that only 1 is here, and that one sporadically. Baltimore Orioles are using more of the feeders.

Subject: Oak Park, Wichita
Hi Folks,

We are not getting anywhere near the Warblers they are getting in Eastern Kansas. But, we can’t do anything about that and today I did find some new species for this spring, but the warbler traffic is very slow. I did find a couple of male Redstart Warblers and a Common Yellowthroat. The constant North wind has switched to the South so maybe we will get more new warblers arriving. I also noticed the female Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have arrived in Oak Park. It will be nest building time soon.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Subject: Flicker Nesting Update
More changes at my flicker filled yard. At about noon I'm in my garden and
notice wood shavings all below the intruder flicker's nest box. Throughout
the day I saw more shavings fall to the ground as well as a flicker
emerging with beaks full of shaving. I also saw the new pair on top fo the
box mating (or as I like to say "doing it"). The resident pair doesn't seem
to be as bothered as they were when the intruder first showed up. I've
been seeing them carrying fecal sacks from their nest box. I'm really
surprised that I haven't seen any starlings here for a week.

Also all five of the bluebird eggs hatched. And I saw chickadees checking
out a nest box again. House wrens have eggs now.

Subject: A note on the 2017 KOS Spring Meeting/field trips
Good afternoon,

Now that I've had a chance to collect myself from the weekend and a round
of 140 kids through the nature center today, I wanted to express my
gratitude to all of the folks who helped make the 2017 spring KOS meeting
possible.

Spring is a busy time of year, and for me it's field trip season at the SEK
Nature Center. Knowing that, several people stepped up to help with various
tasks to make this KOS meeting happen. If you enjoyed the snacks from
Friday evening you can thank my mother, Ellen Rader for hooking us up with
some tasty treats.

Mike Rader, Rob Penner, Andrew Burnett, Ed Miller, Emmett Sullivan, Dave
Henness, John Schukman, Charles and Carolyn Chips, and others either helped
scout out locations and/or helped lead trips over the course of the
weekend. Thank you so much for your help!

A HUGE thank you to Mike Rader and Rob Penner for coming out a day early to
help me get things ready for the weekend. You guys are the best!!

Also, thank you to Chuck Otte for your insight and help with the meeting
prep. And for keeping track of our county lists. Thanks to Max for making
sure I had the money needed for lunches/snacks and our meeting roster.

Most importantly, thank you to everyone who came out for the weekend and to
everyone who supports KOS through their membership dues, donations, etc. We
can't put on these events without you.

I hope everyone in attendance enjoyed the weekend. I've had some wonderful
notes from several of you, and I'm glad to hear you had a good time. I
really enjoyed meeting new people and seeing friends. The birding and
weather wasn't half-bad, either! If you find yourself in southeast Kansas,
please stop by the SEK Nature Center and say hello.

Thanks again, and happy birding!

Subject: Carolina wrens
I just had to share my carolina wren story. I went outside to eat my lunch
on my back patio. The second I sat down a bird came flying toward me out of
nowhere. It landed RIGHT ON MY PLATE. Looked at me and then flew off. it
was a Caroline wren. I think it may be a recently fledged one. For the
past couple days I've noticed a wren making repeated trips to the meal worm
feeder about every minute. I'm guessing he is feeding the kids.

I'm not sure where they nested. Not in any of my nest boxes. maybe just in
the hedgerow of chokecherry.

Subject: Clinton Lake area migrants
Jon King asked me to post this for him as he is having difficulty accessing the listserv this morning. - Ted

This morning and the last I birded around the east end of Clinton Lake. Following heavy nocturnal passage, morning flight at the south end of the dam can be impressive (for Kansas at least). Many of these migrants resist crossing open water and as a result, are funneled around the southeastern side of the lake. This occurred yesterday and today.

Yesterday (5/7) I was there for approximately 30 mins. and observed the following birds and others in active migration.

~400 Blue Jays
~90 warblers (35 Myrtle, 15 Yellow, 40 unidentified)
~10 sparrows (most Chipping)
~35 Dickcissels
7 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks
7 Baltimore Orioles
1 Orchard Oriole

Today (5/8) I stayed for an hour. As was noted by Bob Antonio, warbler composition changed considerably today. Few Myrtles were observed. They are by far the easiest of the warblers to pick out because of their distinctive call notes which are frequently given in morning flight. Far more Dickcissels, Orioles, and Bobolinks were observed too. Female Red-winged Blackbirds (still migrating) and a single American Pipit were among those species on the tail end of their migration. The following species and others were observed in active migration.

~370 Blue Jays
Eastern Kingbirds (several)
~80 warblers
<10 sparrows
Indigo Buntings (several)
Dickcissels (~550 notes, not sure how many individuals)
~65 Bobolinks
~30 Red-winged Blackbirds
23 Baltimore Orioles
8 Orchard Orioles

For those wanting complete lists see the links below. If anyone else wishes to observe this, just park on the hill at the south end of the dam. Passage is heaviest from just before sunrise until an hour or so afterwards. Such events are of course weather dependent. I would not recommend making the effort to be there unless radar indicates that a significant movement occurred.

Subject: Clark / Ford Co. birding
Hi All,

I had a wonderful morning at Clark SFL in Clark Co. 80 species with 8.5 warbler species (both Audubon's and Myrtle Yellow-rumped). Of most interest was a singing and chattering Wood Thrush and a pretty solid Black-capped Chickadee candidate, both on the north end. I also had a roosting Broad-winged Hawk, watched a pair of Mississippi Kites in the nest building process, a pair of Carolina Chickadees on the east side, 3 Painted Buntings, 3 Spotted Towhees, and gobs of Orioles including a singing male Bullock's.

Forgetting to send this last night, per a recommendation from the one and only Jeff Calhoun, I hit Herron playa near Spearville and the Yucca Rd. playas near Minneola, both in Ford Co. Between the two locations I found 7! Cinnamon Teal, nearly 1,400 Wilson's Phalaropes, and a Clark's Grebe at the pool along Yucca Rd. West of 110 Rd. Distant video stills of the Grebe on the Kansas Birding Facebook page.

Subject: Burcham:Monday

Another very nice morning along the Kaw. LOTS of mosquitoes early - about worst I can remember them, but the warming and slight breeze helped enormously. It is definitely a shifting moment in the migration and in Burcham - the bush and trees are nearly leaved out and its getting hard to see. A great deal of Goldfinch chatter and the Monday morning train traffic made it hard to hear. I had 60 species, the most this spring.

Dickcissel - FSB been hearing their flight notes as they fly north over the river (actually should have listed this earlier).
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher FSB 2 soft notes (at a spot on the pond where Peter Grund heard them weeks ago) White-crowned Sparrow FSB 4 - saw and heard many at Baker Wetlands yesterday but they come through lower density about this time in Burcham.
Wilson's Warbler - FS 2 - one singing

Yellow Warbler - 27 - Saw many and heard many and surely missed many, especially in the areas thick with Goldfinch chatter.
Prothonotary Warbler 1 & possible 2 - 1 singing south of bridge in flooded area & saw one on the upper side of river trail Northern Waterthrush - 2 singing - 1 nearby the PW & another on north side of the trail Black & White Warbler - 1 singing Northern Parula - 3 singing Nashville Warbler- 5 singing Tennessee Warbler 1 - singing

Red-eyed Vireo - 11 singing
Warbling Vireo - 17 singing

Spotted Sandpiper -1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 2
Great-crested Flycatcher - 5 calling
Eastern Kingbird - 2 notes
Western Kingbird - 1
Eastern Wood Pewee - 1 singing
Baltimore Oriole 12 - lots of loud song
Pileated WP - 1 calling

Indigo Bunting - 1 female (they seem late this year) Clay-colored Sparrow - 1

First, walk this spring that I did not have Yellow-rumped Warblers. Also, I did not list any White-crowns or Lincoln Sparrows. This and the mass of Yellow Warblers usually at Burcham means that the early phase of the migration is over.

Another very nice morning along the Kaw. LOTS of mosquitoes early - about worst I can remember them, but the warming and slight breeze helped enormously. It is definitely a shifting moment in the migration and in Burcham - the bush and trees are nearly leaved out and its getting hard to see.

Subject: KOS Spring meeting compiled checklist - TENTATIVE
Let me also add my thanks to Jenn Rader for coordinating and planning this
year's KOS Spring Meeting/Field Trips. Jaye and I had a great time!

Below is the tentative compiled list of sightings from 3 p.m. Friday afternoon
through lunch today (Sunday) in Cherokee, Crawford, Labette and Neosho
Counties. I'm still waiting on follow up on a couple of species yet so there
could be some minor changes. If you see something that is missing, please
send me the details. At some point in the future I'll also have a table finished
showing the sightings for each county. (TIme conflicts may put this out a
couple of weeks or so!)I know we had several new county records - thank
you to those who submitted those to me!! We could tell that there had been a
wind change overnight by the activity this morning!

Just for fun, please also send me any critter sightings that you may have had
- thinking primarily mammals, reptiles and amphibians - these need to have
been living critters - dead armadillos on the road don't count!!!! And don't
start sending me insect or plant lists either!!!

Jaye and I came home to a Lazuli Bunting at the feeders and a Common
Nighthawk west of Junction City this evening (both Geary County).

Subject: Sunday: Baker Wetlands
I also birded Baker Wetlands a little later in the morning and not as well as Jon King and Matt. I did not have near the numbers they did but had many of the same species. I glanced at Jon's ebird list and I ran across a few things to add.

Common Moorhen - 1 was looking for the Least Bittern near the Gazebo that others had seen & happened to see the Moorhen briefly but well 50 yards south
Black-throated Green Warbler - 1 south side of the area at the wood edge just before the road down to the river; sang and popped out in the sun
Eastern Wood Pewee - 1 singing nearby ther BTG
Tennessee Warbler - 1 was operating with the Palm Warbler & several Yellows in bushy with a couple of trees area just south of the bridge to old wetlands - sang softly but also got a look
Bell's Vireo - 2 one was singing with Palm
Yellow-Breasted Chat - 2 chatting - one near south end of center road in thicket to east & another 3/4s down the center road
White-eyed Vireo - 2 singing dispersed just like the Chats near the center road
Black Tern - 20

Its really too bad all the bushes have been removed by the city along the gravel road that runs the west side of the old wetlands - was excellent habitat for Bell's Vireo (many pairs), Chats, Willow Flycathers, and others...

Subject: Flicker Drama
Yesterday was a stressful day for me and the flickers. Yesterday, the
resident male has been chasing the intruding male non stop. They got
into a few fights too. At one point the locked bills in midair until
they hit the ground. I also found flicker feathers in the lawn. I was
concerned that the resident male wasn't brooding his offspring. The
female didn't seem to be bothered by all of this. The male flickers
were looking very tired and panting by evening. I thought I better do
something, so I took down the intruders nest box hoping they would
leave. Instead the intruder showed up at the resident's box. I put the
box back up and changed its direction to be the opposite of the
resident's box. This morning the males were at it chasing each other
but seemed a little less aggressive. Maybe they are going to tolerate
each other.

Warblers seemed to have arrived last night. I saw multiple yellows in
the yard this morning. Also had my first male summer tanager. Also saw
a couple kinds of flycatchers.

Subject: Morton County
David Wiggins and I birded in Morton County from Thursday evening until yesterday (Saturday) morning. Highlights were 13 species of warbler, the most noteworthy of which were a stunning male Cape May Warbler (second county record) at the wooded pond near the sewer ponds, and a Worm-eating Warbler drinking from a puddle of melting snow at the Work Station. Never thought I would see a Worm-eating Warbler and snow in the same field of view. Also had several Parulas and Blackpolls among the more expected species. Other notable birds included a couple of Plumbeous Vireos (photographed by David), Summer Tanager (including one that succumbed to the blizzard in a yard in town), Rose-breasted and Black-headed Grosbeaks, Broad-winged Hawks, and a pair of ravens which we believe are nesting Common Ravens. David had a Cassin's Kingbird near the sewer ponds before I arrived. Spizella sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows were abundant at every location. The most interesting sewer pond birds were a Hooded Merganser, two Buffleheads, three Wood Ducks, and a drake Cinnamon Teal.


We again were amazed at the daily turnover of birds in Morton County. For example, on Thursday afternoon Yellow-rumps were abundant everywhere with an almost equal split of Audubon's and Myrtles. On Friday, Yellow-rumps were still abundant, but they were virtually all Myrtles. On Saturday morning the Yellow-rumps of both types were gone.


Cleanup from the blizzard was still going on and we were unable to even make it to Point of Rocks because of the conditions of even normally well-traveled roads. Pretty much had to stick to the pavement. -- Ted

I've been getting around Ford County and seeing a few birds. Piping Plovers
have been the story, one seen two weeks ago, one Thursday at Herron Playa,
five Friday then eight Saturday at the Cecil's playa on Yucca Rd. Quite the
event! A Black-bellied Plover was present Thursday while multiple Semipalm
Plovers have been around, too. Also crazy, believe it or not, I have
observed at least 60 Ring-billed Gulls in Ford Co this week! Some students
and I observed Lesser Prairie Chickens yesterday as well as a Burrowing Owl
at an abandoned Badger mound. We then made our way to Arkalon Park (Seward
Co) and we all took a moment to enjoy the Bullocks Orioles, Cassins
Sparrows, and Bald Eagle. Some true young naturalists curiosities are being
sparked and it makes my heart happy. Passerine migration has left a lot to
be desired, but the Spizella sparrows can provide hours of fun and are here
in their usual droves.

Subject: Request for assistance - recordings of migrating Mourning Warbler songs
I am writing once again to ask the birding community for recordings of Mourning Warbler songs during spring migration. It is an opportunity to participate in a Citizens Science Project with two specific goals. 1) Evaluate the use of birdsong as a new tool for studying bird migration. 2) Determine whether different song populations of Mourning Warblers (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective areas of the species’ breeding range. This posting is for year three of this project. I am making substantial progress and want to thank everyone who has contributed so far.

All you need to contribute is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some luck. The web page link below describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail (note - I have also been able to make recordings from videos that birders have sent me).

Birding in Lyon County has been excellent, especially for shorebirds, since my last post (reporting Black-necked Stilt) on 16 April 2017, but little has been new for my county list. I was pleased to complete the Recurvirostridae a week after finding the stilts by finding four American Avocets at the Burgess Marsh area of Flint Hills NWR on 23 April 2017. Today, 6 May 2017, at the Burgess Marsh, I found a Common Gallinule, which is perhaps an addition to the Lyon County checklist.

Subject: Baker Wetlands - 5/6
Matt Longabaugh and I birded the Baker Wetlands this morning. He
departed ~9, and I continued on for a few hours. Nothing outstanding
was discovered, although birding was generally good following last
nights heavy passage. The morning flight (i.e. nocturnal passage
continuing in morning) was entertaining. For the first two hours after
sunrise dozens of warblers and other migrants (Eastern Kingbird,
Dickcissel, Bobolink, etc.) were seen and heard overhead, flying
northwards at low altitude. Diurnal migrants (Blue Jays, swallows)
were on the move as well, at least before the wind shifted north
again. Several groups of shorebirds flew in low and seemed to check
out the pools near the discovery center, but generally moved on, as
habitat there is limited by high water levels. Later in the morning,
~100 or so had settled due east of the visitor center in a shallow
weedy area just south of the east-west path.

Among the 126 species tallied, the most noteworthy (to me at least)
were Northern Pintail (late-ish), American Bittern (11), Least
Bittern, White-faced Ibis, Hudsonian Godwit, Dunlin, Blue-headed
Vireo, Gray-cheeked Thrush, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Palm
Warbler, LeConte's Sparrow, Bobolink, and Yellow-headed Blackbird. A
silent Traill's Flycatcher was marginally early. The following
migrants were particularly numerous today: Sora (~35), Sedge Wren
(~20), Yellow Warbler (~30), Myrtle Warbler (~30), Common Yellowthroat
(~60), White-crowned Sparrow (~30), and Lincoln's Sparrow (~60).
Today's passerine composition definitely had an "early" flavor, with
the earlier-migrating species such as Orange-crowned Warbler,
Yellow-rumped Warbler, and Lincoln's Sparrow being quite common. The
best is yet to come I suppose.

Hi Folks,

I was a nice day in Oak Park. A bunch of us walked Oak Park, having a nice time. Not many Warblers. But, lots of other attractions filled our morning. Among them, it appears Yellow-crowned Night-Herons are starting a colony in the tall Burr Oaks. Maybe, next year we will have the brook on the North side in working order and we will go back to the second saturday in May for the Warbler Walk.

Happy Birding,

It was a beautiful morning along the Kaw. I was hoping for more arrivals but it was not very birdy or I was missing them. When I came to work on the Hill, I noticed the KU flags are still blowing from the NW (which might be holding the birds back). However, may be other have found more activity/ I listed 53 species.

Eastern Wood Pewee - 1 FS
Clay-colored Sparrow - 2+ FS - I observed two and I heard several flying up river
Western Kingbird - 1FS
Common Yellowthroat - 1FSB

Prothonotary possible - 1 though I heard sing once near its breeding location of other years on south side of river trail

Yellow-rumped Warbler -8 not much song but saw several males
Yellow Warbler 3 - some notes
Nashville Warbler - 4 singing
Northern Parula - 2 singing
Black & White - 3 saw and heard
=
Franklin's Gulls - 500+ several groups cackling up high- looks like they were migrating up the Kaw. They were very high and loud and I likely undercounted.
Red-eyed Vireo - 4 singing - looks like they have returned to spots where they hang and breed
Pileated WP- 1calling
Fish Crow - 2 one at the same spot I hear every day - maybe nesting across river & second near the pond west of RR tracks

Cliff Swallows return I believe - looks like the full colony finally was at the Mass. bridge usual nesting site and were entering and exiting the nests. A flocked up mass of chattering, social A. Goldfinches are near the south stream and make it hard to hear there. I have not seen or heard the E. Collared Doves that breed near the power station adjacent south side of park in three weeks.

Hi Folks,

Meet me tomorrow morning, the 6th of May, at 9 am, at the parking lot on the South side of the big lake, on the Northside of Oak Park. The weather looks good, we will walk the park and see what we can find. It normally takes about 2 hours. Warblers, vireos, hummingbirds, flycatchers, nesting night herons and others. I saw a Summer Tanager yesterday. See you there.

I don't know much about tanagers, but it sounds like a summer tanager. I would think a scarlet tanager would have dark wing undersides. Here is weblink to a photo of a summer tanager which seems to show a dark tail underneath:

Subject: What a day for my yard just SE of Derby!

First of all, just saw underside of brilliant, solid, crimson red
bird--only marking I saw as he flew over was the black 2 inches of the
underside of his tail. Underside of wings were red. As my mind assumed
"Cardinal", my thinker realized it wasn't. My bird books do not show me
the underside of the two Tanagers that I thought might be his specie (I've
never had either). Anyone know a bird by its brilliant red underside?
Secondly, saw a Daddy Bluebird "calling" on our nestbox. Knew he and a
female had been keeping house for weeks and weeks there. Then, another
bird flew in and followed him to feeders (sunflower meats and dried
mealworm)--seemed to be female. But, in the trees, I could see it flapping
and begging as the male fed it. Later, I see a fledgling bluebird, but a
good flyer, perched on branches, dropping to ground to feed. So, that
means, the nest produced young and, at least one has emerged successfully
into toddlerhood. I've had glimpses at the feeder, but thought I was
"misperceiving" the odd bird I was seeing---still has fledgling dark
markings on back, seems to be all light colored below, only a bit of
blue--like on edges of feathers, maybe?
Then, I had my first Baltimore Oriole at the jelly feeder (still no hummer
except an early migrant who took one sip and abandoned ship a couple weeks
ago).
And, I have a Chipping Sparrow hanging out with a couple Harris sparrows
and a White-Crowned sparrow. They seem to be there when the Goldfinch
squad (5 of them) come in with their usual buddies, Chickadee and Titmouse.
Finally, I heard the Cooper's hawk screaming at the pond--insistently
enough that I looked up (was reading a good book on the deck). Two Coopers
flew into the tree and the squawking continued. Then, here is the odd
thing, a great, big, buff-colored-bigger-than-a-Coopers sort of
fell-swooped out of that tree and took off up--looked big and chunky like
and owl to me (I have had Long-Horned at that pond). Does that make
sense? Coopers were quiet immediately and I did not see them fly.
I think that is it. Has been a really beautiful day and I savored the
outdoors.
Thanks for any ideas you have about the red bird.

Quivira conditions as of today, 5 May: roads dry. There is about 3-4 inches over the north Little Salt Marsh spillway - okay for most vehicles - avoid driving through if nervous. Mosquitoes are fairly thick along NE 170th and in woodlots. Ticks probable also.

Birds of interest today FOS Orchard Oriole and Swainson's Thrush in Hq shelterbelt. Nice Palm Warbler at Migrants Mile trailhead (photo on ebird).

Anyone planning to go to Quivira early tomorrow let me know. I can meet up and compare notes.

Subject: Flicker update
Yesterday I checked the flicker box and there are now 4 chicks. I'm
doubtful any more eggs will hatch. So only 4 of the 7 eggs hatched.
Last year only 3 of 8 eggs hatched.

This morning I heard a peck peck peck and thought it was time for the
flickers to change shifts at the box. But no bird showed up. I kept
watching and listening. Finally saw the male flicker from the resident
nest box fly to the other box. He kept calling and looking in. Finally
he entered. I didn’t really hear a commotion and then I saw him exit. I
kept watching the other box and finally a male flicker appeared at the
hole. Later I saw a female show up at the box. I also saw 3 flickers at
the box at one point. I’m not sure if the resident flickers will allow a
second pair to nest so closely to them. Maybe they won’t mind since
their eggs have hatched. The boxes are about 30 feet apart. After
seeing this, it looks like a 2nd pair has adopted the other nest box.
I'd be overjoyed if i had TWO pairs of flickers nesting in the yard!

Great crested flycatchers are back in the neighborhood.

Two pairs of House wrens have nests but no eggs. It's been a week since
their nests were completed.

Riverton Lake road around is also dry. Water is way up, duh.
At Riverton Lake there were no ducks, just Canada geese, some cormorants,

Hi Folks,

After another overnight rainfall, Oak Park was very wet this morning. But, the sun came out about 1 pm and things warmed up bird wise. I found 3 new birds for me, this spring, a singing Blue-headed Vireo, a male Black and White Warbler and a few Tennessee Warblers. Still a lot of Orange-crowned Warblers and a few Yellow-rumped. With the chilly weather, and the wind still out of the North, the migrants are moving fairly slow through Oak Park.

Happy Birding,

I ran out to the Oregon Trail Nature Park this evening to a spot on the
south side of the road where the stream from the park drains off towards
the river that always felt like it would be a good rail hideout,
unfortunately I hadn't been able to find them there (or anywhere else in
the county). Using some leftover Marlett mojo I managed to get TWO Virginia
Rails to respond to call!

I believe that Westar Energy owns this property along with the Nature Park
but to be on the safe side I would recommend anyone interested just stay on
the road.

Subject: Quivira Wrap Up
A brief summary of the two days of birding at Quivira ending the Up in Snow
tour.

Three lifers added...

Black Rail, and with some help from Patty Marlett a Virginia Rail
(apparently she is an expert at conjuring up these things)

Very convincing looks at a Glossy Ibis but without confirmation from
someone else was going to have to pass on it, that is until Andrew Miller
posted his photo. An email conversation with him revealed that he had got
his bird in the same spot I had seen mine earlier that day.

Honorable mention...

Cinnamon Teal seen in the pools between the two low water crossings in the
Wildlife Loop. How many hundreds of Teal did I look at this spring before
finally seeing one? Too dang many.

Black-billed Magpie, seen on 140th the blacktop just off the refuge
property. This is not a furthest east for me, sometime in the early 90s
before I started listing I saw one along Hwy 24 around the Miltonvale area.

Lark Bunting, only because that was my farthest west bird of the trip
briefly seen during the clueless drive into the maelstrom on Sunday in
Stevens County.

Other thoughts...

I will probably never go back to Quivira for short visits unless to chase,
I really enjoyed coming in and out of there on multiple trips finding
something new almost everytime.

Finally got in contact with El Rancho in Elkhart today. The part of town
the motel is in did not have power with any kind of reliability until
sometime last evening. The lady on the phone said she believed the official
snowfall total there was 16''.

Subject: Red-shouldered Hawk in Jewell County
Hi:
I birded Monday and Tuesday in Republic and Jewell County. On Monday
heading down HWY 14 from Lovewell Resrvoir I saw a Red-shouldered Hawk on a
fence post facing me with its belly. A riparian woods was in the
background. This may be a first county record for Jewell. Their move west
continues. There were lots of Shorebirds in the Republic county part of
Jamestown Marsh.

At the west end of Lovewell on Tuesday near where I had seen the
Red-shouldered Hawk I found what I thought were 12 white egrets. It ended
up being 14 egrets as there were two Little Blue Herons in with them. One
of the white egrets was a Snowy showing its yellow feet as it lifted off.
And one was a Cattle Egret with its reddish tint.

I do have a question I hope to address someone from KDWP at KOS, Mike? Can
birders bird in the daily hunt permit areas of KDWP? I drove around some of
these areas but wondered if walking in is allowed?

Thanks
Dan Larson

Subject: Wyandotte Co. Lake (5/2/17)
Yesterday morning (May 2, 2017) there was a lot of bird activity at Wyandotte Co. Lake Park on the west side of Kansas City, with highlights including Green Heron, Osprey, Bald Eagles, Acadian Flycatcher, Great Crested Flycatchers, dozens of Red-headed Woodpeckers, vireos (Warbling, Yellow-throated, Red-eyed), Gray Catbird, several warbler species (Ovenbird, Louisiana Waterthrush, Northern Parula, Black-and-White, Prothonotary, Orange-crowned, Nashville, Kentucky, Yellow, Palm, and Yellow-rumped), Scarlet Tanagers, Indigo Buntings, and Baltimore Orioles. I spent most of the time birding on the west side of the lake near the marina, with brief stops at a few pullouts around the lake.

Today (5/3/17) Nic Allen reported a Pine Warbler at Shelter #3 at this location.

Good birding,

Hello birders,

To go along with the Swainson's Thrushes, Great-crested Flycatchers,
Baltimore Orioles, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, and Nashville Warblers of
last week....
I had a Black-and-white Warbler in Schermerhorn Park yesterday and today
(finally), as well as 7 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and 1 Painted Bunting.

Haven't had a chance to get out much this last week, but am looking forward
to seeing what we can come up with in the area for the KOS field trips.

Good birding,

Subject: Leavenworth County Tuesday with arrivals
I birded Fort Leavenworth again on Tuesday, May 2. I listed 66 species with 12 species of warblers, each of them fairly common for the area - 1 Tennessee, 1 Nashville, 4 Kentucky, 1 Black-and-white, 1 Orange-crowned, 8 C Yellowthroat, 1 American Redstart, 6 N Parula, 1 Yellow, 6 Yellow-rumped, 1 Yellow-throated and 2 Yellow-breasted Chat.

Other birds, FOS = first of the season for me in Leavenworth County:

7 Sora, 1 FOS Western Kingbird, 1 Gray Catbird, 2 Lincoln’s Sparrow, 2 Rose-breasted Grosbeak, 2 Wood Thrush, 3 FOS Orchard Oriole, 1 Baltimore Oriole, 1 FOS Indigo Bunting.

The upland forests are still not very active is my impression. There’s almost always something interesting to look at in the bottoms. Two ebird lists, separated by area:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36497946 <http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36497946>

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36497979 <http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36497979>

I had one interesting period in the bottoms. I was walking the tail dike trail, the one that parallels the river, when ahead of me 60 feet or so was a bird bathing in a water puddle on the trail. It was perfect, with several pools of water and a nice tangle for shelter. I kept myself still for 30 minutes or more while a parade of birds used the bath - Orange-crowned Warbler, male and female Yellow-rumped Warbler, male and female Eastern Bluebird, male Eastern Towhee, several White-crowned and White-throated Sparrow while other species were nearby vocalizing. It was pretty cool.

Subject: Western Kingbirds - Geary County
For the past 15+ years there have been Western Kingbirds nesting on the
transformer pole next to our office parking lot. Last year they nested,
hatched a couple of young and then that horrible hot weather in early June
basically toasted the nestlings and they fledged no little kingbirds.
Normal return date for the kingbirds has been about the 22nd or 23rd of
April. This year late April came and went with no kingbirds. In fact we
haven't seen any kingbirds in Geary County yet this year. I was concerned
that with the nest failure last year that there may be no returning
kingbirds.

A few minutes ago, as I sat at my computer typing, motion outside my
window caught my attention and I saw what appeared to be a couple of
kingbirds in a tree near the courthouse. I grabbed my binoculars and
stepped out the back door to the chatter of three Western Kingbirds in
that one tree and several others around the immediate vicinity. Cause the
weather "dam" to the south has crumbled enough to let a few birds start
moving through!!

Good morning,

Last evening and again this morning there was a black crowned night heron present at the KSU Cattle unit off Marlatt Rd in Manhattan. Both times I saw it, the bird was sitting quietly in tall vegetation in the pond east of the access road off Marlatt Ave.

Not a spectacular find but I haven't previously encountered night herons at this location. A good lunch time bird to go after if you are in Manhattan area today!

Other birds today included least SP, YH Blackbird, and spotted SP found among the usual suspects.

Best,

Subject: Kansas Ornithololgical Society Spring Meeting Information (long)
Greetings KOS Spring Meeting Attendees:

Looks like we should have decent weather for this weekend's birding field
trips. If you are headed this direction for the meeting, here are a few
things you need to know (especially if you only browsed over the meeting
description on your registration).

-Since food is the most important: If you did not sign up and pay for a
boxed lunch before today, you probably won't get one for Sunday's
compilation. We'll have a few extras for anyone that got their registration
in late, but not many.

-For the Saturday evening meal, we'll be changing things up just a bit. We
have such a large group of people, I'll ask that if you plan to go to
Pichler's Chicken Annie's, don't expect to sit with a large group of us
together. And if we can make an effort to stagger when folks come in, the
kitchen there will greatly appreciate it. So if you get in at 5pm and are
ready to eat, you don't have to wait until 6:30pm to head over. I'm happy
to provide other places for you to eat if you'd rather do something besides
chicken, too.

-We just had torrential rains over the weekend and more rain is coming
through tonight and tomorrow. We've got LOTS of water. Shorebirds may be
difficult, but we'll see what you all can come up with! Please bring
appropriate shoes for the wet conditions. If you've got muck boots or some
other form of rubber boots, throw them in.

-Friday evening, come out to the Southeast Kansas Nature Center anytime
between 6:30pm-9:00pm. But don't try to drive down by the creek. Quick way
to get a flat tire right now, as Shoal Creek is still up and did a number
on the gravel bar. On that note, please be careful driving down the less
traveled roads throughout the weekend, and watch where you pull over to
park. Some of us will try to scout out roads and such again before the
weekend, but use caution regardless!

-Please sign up for field trips at the Friday evening gathering, or in the
parking lot of the Regency Inn in Pittsburg Saturday morning by 6:30am or
earlier. We have over 60 people registered and we'd like our field trip
leaders to have an idea of what they're dealing with.

-Make your best efforts to carpool with others. Especially if you do not
have All or 4-wheel drive. Parking will be limited in many spots over the
weekend, so the less cars we have caravanning, the better.

-TIcks are out, mosquitoes are starting to come out, and the poison ivy is
all over. Bring your bug spray and wear appropriate clothing to prevent
misery.

For Saturday, Ed Miller will be leading one trip to the Grand Osage
Wildlife Area in Labette County (just SE of Parsons) and some other
locations in Labette Co., birding back toward Pittsburg. Andrew Burnett
will be leading another trip to Neosho County and Crawford County. Stops
may include the Neosho Wildlife Area, other birding hotspots he's got in
Neosho Co., and the Farlington FIsh Hatchery Ponds and Crawford State Park
area. Jenn Rader will be leading a trip to Cherokee County, including
Schermerhorn Park, the Oak Hill Cemetary, Empire Lake, the Mined Lands and
others depending on water levels. Saturday lunch will be on your own in
your field trip area. Leaders will provide some lunch options for you.
Sunday's trips will be mostly around Crawford and Cherokee Counties, ending
in Oswego for the compilation.

Some folks make do their own County Listing Trips, so mingle Friday night
and see what you think sounds great to you! If you're familiar with some
birding hotspots down this way, you don't have to stick with a group.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Jenn Rader, at
<jennrader34...>, <jennifer.rader...> or give me a call at the SEK
Nature Center, 620-783-5207. If I've forgotten anything, field trip leaders
and KOS Board, please add on to the list.

Thanks and look forward to seeing you this weekend!!

We then went to a native prairie/wet meadow in the county and found Sedge

If you are used to seeing this bird as only a handful of birds in a mixed flock, these birds in breeding plumage are a treat.

Subject: Re: Grosbeak, Oriole
RE hummers not showing up etc. Must be the weird weather we have had this
spring. I had one hummer about two weeks ago, this followed by a couple
Baltimore Orioles. Normally a single hummer arrives ahead of a batch that
remain for the summer. Marks the beginning of the season for me.

But not this year. My single left after a couple days with no more
following...so far. Our 'normal'** hummer arrival is around now, nearly
two weeks after that single flew in this year. The Orioles have not
returned either, this in spite of the potential lure of lots of grape
jelly. And I just put out a fresh batch of sugar water for the hummers;
hope some arrive soonest.

And of course the darn squirrels abound but even they are not as many as in
years past. Found a newly broken sunflower feeder this morning thanks to
those rats with tails.

**Old normal because, for the last several years, the hummers have arrived
in the last week of April, about a week early. Perhaps that nasty snow
storm in the western parts of our State has delayed them this year.

Hi all,


I spent a couple of hours at the Big Salt Marsh of Quivira this morning and did not relocate the Little Stint reported by Gene Young from there last evening. Still fun to be out there on a bright, sunny morning. I did have a few birds of interest, shown on the attached report. Rob Penner was just getting there when I was leaving, so maybe he will have better luck!

Subject: Bird Trip Goes Up in Snow
Evening everyone, I had this brainy idea of taking off for Morton Co. this
morning with the intentions of coming in behind the storm to see what might
have blown in. I made a stop at Quivira spending all of my time there on
the Wildlife Loop and 170th. was not looking for a Stint so I missed that
but did FINALLY get Black Rail which was one of my target birds. Other than
the horrific wind and the fear that every semi I would meet was going to
tip over the trip from the Q to Liberal was smooth sailing outside of some
moderate snowfall around the Spearville area. I had decided to go south to
Liberal and drive that blacktop that runs straight west to Elkhart in hopes
of avoiding the last of the storm, plus there are a few spots along that
stretch that have produced some good birds for me in the past. Here is
where things started to go even further south...

That stretch of blacktop had 6+ inches of snow on it but fortunately
someone had made one trip though it with a vehicle and the tire tracks had
melted down to the pavement so the driving was good if you paid attention
(end of birding at this point). I reached the blacktop that ran north into
Hugoton and decided I was through messing around so I headed that direction
to catch 56 down to Elkhart. When I got to Hugoton I discovered the highway
was closed going west and the whole town was a disaster area, water running
everywhere, snow everywhere water wasn't washing it away, trees and limbs
scattered on the ground from the winds and heavy snow. Birding Morton
County went out the window and the immediate concern was getting myself out
of harms way so the only for sure move was to backtrack back to Liberal the
same route I had taken earlier. Managed to beat it back to Dodge City for
the night but not after seeing many a car in the ditch and several head of
dead livestock.

I started trying to call the El Rancho Motel around 4pm when I hit Hugoton,
but as of this writing I still cannot have not been able to reach them.

Guess I will move in an easterly direction in the morning with another run
through the Q and maybe get a zootie!

Subject: Roaring River State Park MO
I got back yesterday from a birding day on Friday April 28 at Roaring River State Park & vicinity near Cassville, MO. A short report can apply to this list as simply great birding but also because it is 2 hours SE of Pittsburg KS & the KOS meeting in case anyone would want to consider putting the two sites together.

My birding there is with Jerry & Marge Williams, my younger brother & his wife. Living near Springfield, they have become expert at the birds, bird song and birding locations in southern Barry County MO. The itinerary that we take covers the state park, a part of Mark Twain National Forest and roadside birding on adjacent private land.

A brief summary is that we birded for 12 hours on Friday April 28 and rang up 106 total species with 22 species of warblers. The species total includes only 4 waterfowl, 2 waders and 3 shorebirds, so lots of songbirds. This year’s list was highlighted by 7 Ceruleans, 22 Hooded, 13 Ovenbird, 5 Worm-eating, 4 Prairie and 8 Blue-winged, numbers that are actually lower than some previous years. It was gray all day with a light rain in the morning. We have had higher numbers on sunny, calm days. ebird checklist:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36384981 <http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36384981>

The Audubon Society of Missouri (ASM) offers this birding summary of the area, by Jeff Cantrell:

http://mobirds.org/Locations/SiteDetail.aspx?id=1128 <http://mobirds.org/Locations/SiteDetail.aspx?id=1128>

Our itinerary goes to many of those same locations with emphasis on the forest roads of Sugar Camp Scenic Drive, Butler Hollow, Forest Service Rd 1050, the Roaring River Conservation Area he describes and all of the backroads and hotspots in between, plus the trails and roads that are accessible from the state park.

Good birding! Visit Roaring River when you can.

Subject: Birding Flurry in Riverside in Wichita
As a rule, Billie and I don’t post much of the “mundane” stuff we enjoy. This afternoon is an exception because we had such a great time Bird Watching into our backyard from the kitchen window.
Beginning at 3:30 pm and birding until 6:00 pm we had some of the regulars and a couple nice surprises that we wanted to share.
The usual characters include the Downy, Hairy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Red-breasted Nuthatch, American Goldfinches, House Finches, Carolina Wren, House Wren, American Robin, Eurasian Starling,
Common Grackle, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, Mourning Dove, House Sparrow, and Baltimore Oriole (two individuals so far),
The surprises were a flock of about eight White-crowned Sparrows and a Cedar Waxwing. We have not had a waxwing at our feeders before that we know of.
It was a good day for color saturation with the lower light levels and the bright green grass and flowers. The birds really showed off their plumages for us to enjoy and we did.

Good birding to all,

Billie & Tom McDavitt

Subject: Big Shorebirds, etc.
I was at Quivira NWR on Friday evening, 28 April, prior to the arrival of
the wet weather. I don't think I saw much of anything not reported by
others on eBird, but did see higher numbers for a few species. I watched a
flock of 50 Hudsonian Godwits leaving the Little Salt Marsh headed north and
later saw just 4 more at the Big Salt Marsh. I watched as a flock of 82
Marbled Godwits left the Big Salt Marsh headed north and also had a flock of
45 Willets zooming around but without leaving. A rough count from one spot
along 170th produced 67 Semipalmated Plovers, a pretty impressive
concentration for Kansas.



Other birds at the BSM on Friday night included about 70 Forster's Terns, a
Peregrine Falcon (that did a pretty good Gyr impression) and 6 Red-breasted
Mergansers.



The Willet concentrations on 28 April were apparently happening everywhere
as I had seen 34 in a field in western Pratt County earlier. I was surprised
to see 4 American Golden Plovers in open country in Pratt County on 27
April, but then had 3 more flying north on 28 April. New arrivals on 27
April in Pratt County included Western Kingbird, Warbling Vireo and
Dickcissels.



I made a little side trip into Barber County on 26 April and found almost
nothing of interest, but upon was surprised to find a fresh road-killed owl
along US 281 north of the Elm Mills turnoff. Instead of a Great Horned or a
Barred or a Short-eared Owl, it was in fact a Long-eared Owl. LEOWs are
always around somewhere I guess, even if reports are few and far between.



We were east of the snow-zone for this strorm but had 3" of rain. The creek
at our house is close to spilling over the road. Birds seen up on the porch
seeking shelter include a very bedraggled Loggerhead Shrike and a Say's
Phoebe.

Subject: Purple martins
It may not be all that meaningful to my local purple martin colony, but
after having only 6 so far this spring, there are 25 martins currently on
my houses, in Geary County, looking wet and not particularly happy about
their grounding. Last year, one day there were 36 on my houses during one
spring rain, but I only had about half that number nest. Either way, glad
to see them. Martins in the air, Orioles and hummingbirds at the feeders is
a time I look forward to each year.
