Subject: Great Backyard Bird Count
I hope everyone is counting birds on this fine day.

http://gbbc.birdcount.org/

Thought I'd share what I'm seeing in my Topeka yard.

All the usuals. Plus my first yellow-rumped warbler of the season. They
just haven't been around.

Also had a single purple finch.

Had a gorgeous mature sapsucker at the suet log and then an immature showed
up and chased him off.

Six sparrow species: juncos, white-throated, Harris's, Fox, tree and my
chipping sparrow is still here.

No starlings, where are they?

Subject: Milford State Park Gulls
I saw an eBird alert with picture from Mr. Lake of a great black-backed
gull on my home lake, from Saturday morning. I, myself, had been out
Saturday morning looking for rare gulls on Milford Lake and Milford state
park, but failed to go to the cove pictured. Rectifying that yesterday, I
went back to the State Park and sorted through hundreds of seagulls,
identifying Herring and ring-billed gulls in all age classifications. I
failed to identify anything that was not one of those two species in the
gull category. This is at least the fifth time I've failed to relocate a
black-backed gull at Milford the day of or day after someone else has
reported one; I believe I have my new nemesis county bird(s).

Of other note, my biggest surprise was to see an American white pelican
flying; also saw abundant Common mergansers and a few red-breasted
mergansers.

Subject: Perry Lake - late report
Sorry for the late report. Yesterday afternoon there was a female
Long-tailed Duck and a juvenile Thayer's Iceland Gull at the Perry Lake
Outlet tubes. The duck was hanging out with a flock of approximate 100
Common Goldeneye and they took flight a couple of times while I was there.
A group of 5 of us last saw it in the open water from the SE side of the
dam.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S52524928

A stop at Bowerstock Dam on the way home only included adult Herring and
Ring-billed Gulls, it would have been awesome to see an adult Kumlien
Iceland as Jeff suspected.

Good birding,

Malcolm Gold (Overland Park Johnson County)

Subject: Lawrence Gull
I happened to be in Lawrence this afternoon for a basketball game, and had
some unexpected down time. I decided to go look for the gull viewing spot
on the Kansas River by the lowhead dam about which I used to read reports.
While finding the location, I also discovered I had no binoculars or other
aids with me. Mostly, there appeared to be ring-billed gulls at the site,
but there was one gull that had an all gray mantle, with no black at all on
the wingtips. I viewed the bird within 50 meters, good light, as the bird
was sitting in the river and in flight. This bird was larger than the
ring-billed gulls, but not towering over them. Thus, I believe that it was
an adult Kumlein's Iceland gull, and not a glaucous gull. The wing border
appeared to be a clean gray/white line, without the gray extensions into
the primary feather tips, so this and size eliminate glaucous-winged gull.
I saw a report from January of an Iceland (Thayer's race) gull at this
spot. Since Sibley shows Thayer's to have at least some black, I suspect
this to be a different bird.

If anyone is able to get over there and wishes to get a better look to
confirm identification, please do so and let me know. Or, if there is
something else that I am missing, set me straight.

I think Chris is onto something because of the length of the calls.

I also received the following post on Facebook which I plan to post in the
Youtube video comments.

Garrett MacDonald <https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fgarrett.macdonald.12&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7C0ce9dd3817bc4bce31f608d68de88e4d%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636852427307137893&amp;sdata=IZ3K97jddJ7qRt0X4X%2FEkIczwTFaX9AnxkGXYxIxaXY%3D&amp;reserved=0> This is a
Northern Cardinal singing subsong (practice song before the bird's song
crystallizes). This happens during the first ~6 months of life. Here's some
text about it from the Birds of North America account: "In the laboratory,
song develops gradually during first year (Lemon and Scott 1966). Soft
warbles at about 3 wk of age typically become more songlike during autumn.
Singing then ceases until Jan, when subsong resumes as long sequences of
irregularly spaced whistles that fluctuate rapidly in frequency. Subsong
also includes several recognizable adult vocalizations: chirr that adults
sometimes add to the end of songs, as well as pee-too, chuck, and chitter
calls (see below). By Apr, birds sing adultlike songs."

I think Chris is onto something because of the length of the calls.

I also received the following post on Facebook which I plan to post in the
Youtube video comments.

Garrett MacDonald <https://www.facebook.com/garrett.macdonald.12> This is a
Northern Cardinal singing subsong (practice song before the bird's song
crystallizes). This happens during the first ~6 months of life. Here's some
text about it from the Birds of North America account: "In the laboratory,
song develops gradually during first year (Lemon and Scott 1966). Soft
warbles at about 3 wk of age typically become more songlike during autumn.
Singing then ceases until Jan, when subsong resumes as long sequences of
irregularly spaced whistles that fluctuate rapidly in frequency. Subsong
also includes several recognizable adult vocalizations: chirr that adults
sometimes add to the end of songs, as well as pee-too, chuck, and chitter
calls (see below). By Apr, birds sing adultlike songs."

Subject: Re: Ringed-turtle dove
>Is that different than a Eurasian Collared Dove?

Yes it is, but it brings up an interesting point. I still regularly (okay,
once or twice a year) receive photos from someone of a Eurasian
Collared-Dove asking for confirmation that it is a Ringed Turtle-Dove.
Part of the problem is older bird books (that will remain un-named) that
do not have Eurasian Collared-Dove but do have Ringed Turtle-Dove.

I have seen one Ringed Turtle-Dove in Kansas that was coming to a feeder
on campus at Emporia State University. It was very calm and not prone to
flying away which makes me think that it was nothing more than an escaped
caged bird.

The genus that both of these doves are in, Streptopelia, has at least 15
species in it. It is centered in Africa but spills over into tropical
southern Asia and north into Europe. I haven't checked the taxonomy lately
but there were a couple of other genus that have been in and out of that
group over the past including one of my favorites, the Laughing Dove. I've
always felt their call was more of a chuckle than a laugh, but I still
really like the speices!

Interesting question. I've added links to our take in Nebraska on the two taxa in question. Note Ted Floyd's comments on African Collared-Dove.

Neither taxon is accepted to the Nebraska List.

Yes, they do occur, likely escapees. I'm not sure if there is a breeding population established, so they are not recognized as a valid species in KS by KOS and we didn't include them in the BOK, though we did indicate that they were released in Dodge City ca. 1993. But, there are scattered reports...some during CBCs are reported.

Yes, they do occur, likely escapees. I'm not sure if there is a breeding population established, so they are not recognized as a valid species in KS by KOS and we didn't include them in the BOK, though we did indicate that they were released in Dodge City ca. 1993. But, there are scattered reports...some during CBCs are reported.

Subject: Warblers
Hi Folks,

Yesterday, here in Wichita, it was around 70 degrees. A week ago, we got off easily, with a low of 10 degrees. This morning it was near freezing, with a strong Northernly wind. About 11 am I looked out of my kitchen window to see 2 Yellow-rumped Warblers at the suet feeder a few feet away. I had my camera ready, because I had just finished videoing a Red-breasted Nuthatch, that has been coming to the suet for a month or so, there could be 2. The Warblers really dove into the suet, probably, because the insects from the last few days of warming, were hard to find, with this mornings freezing temperatures. Hopefully, I will see them again, in the next few days.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

Subject: Correction on Ross' Goose
KS Birders,

While it is true that in 1938, the Ross’s Goose breeding area was finally discovered by Angus Gavin on the Perry River in Keewatin- Mackenzie boundary region,
Ross’ Geese were recognized as species as early as the late 18th century- (so the late 1700’s) - by Samuel Hearne of the Hudson Bay company and formally described to science in 1861.

Because of the low numbers, other mysteries certainly surrounded this species for a long time, and certainly their populations have increased dramatically since my youth, but they were a known species and understood to NOT be a form of Snow Goose long, long ago.

Subject: Re: Blue morph snow geese
Followup:
After sending that last message, it just occurred to me that they weren't breeding in eastern Texas and Louisiana since that was their wintering grounds. However, that was where pair formation may have occurred, so pairs would have then migrated together. So blue morphs could have ended up in breeding areas where they had been absent before. I'm still trying to figure all this out, but it seems to be the result of allopatric populations coming into greater contact due to human activitiy.

The history of the two morphs of snow geese is fascinating and apparently still not completely understood. From what I have been reading, the blue/white ratio has been slowly increasing since 1900. Perhaps that is partly the reason the blues began breeding with the white morphs in the 1920s, although a more significant factor may have been rice cultivation in the Louisiana/east Texas region attracting both blue and white morphs to the same areas. Before that the two morphs had been largely allopatric, with very little overlap during breeding. Therefore, they may have remained separate subspecies (with little intergradation) if it hadn't been for human activity in their breeding areas in that region.
Anyway, I wonder where those blue and white snow geese were headed going northwest from Hays. Perhaps the coast of the Northwestern Territories (or further west in northern Alaska)? And were the blue morph snow geese that I saw mostly heterozygous "hybrids"/intergrades, rather than pure homozygous blue morph snow geese. My guess is that they were heterozygous, while most homozygous blue morphs probably still end up in the Hudson Bay region. Have any genetic studies been done on blue morph snow geese migrating through central Kansas?

Earlier this week, I saw several waves of snow geese flying above the northeast corner of Hays (heading northwest).

That surprised me, because I had thought the white morph was more common.

Jeff Calhoun and I made a county listing trip on Saturday. I already
reported on the Brant, but there were some other highlights as well.

We were surprised to observe Sandhill Cranes migrating. The first flock was
heard only in the fog just west of Smith Center in the morning. The second
flock was flying north along the Mitchell/Osborne county line just south of
the south fork of the Solomon River north of Tipton.

We started in the dark west of Downs hoping for a Barred Owl. We heard a
number of Great Horned but zipped on Barred in both Osborne and Smith
Counties. We finally located two on the Mitchell/Jewell County line north of
Waconda Lake in the afternoon. We were surprised to only see two Northern
Harriers the entire day. They were a target species in Smith and Jewell
counties, but the only ones we saw were at Waconda Lake and in Lincoln
County.

SE Smith County was very active at first light particularly near Burr Oaks
along the streams. Later in the day in we realized that most of the birds we
were seeing were year-round residents with few winter migrants observed. We
found a few sparrows here and there, but overall numbers were small.
Raptors were light in numbers and variety. Great looks at a Merlin are
always a treat.

Streams were running more water than I can ever remember in the winter. Most
ponds were frozen. Waconda lake has a lot of ice cover, but it appeared to
be pretty thin. There was one huge flock of Snow/Ross's Geese that were
recently estimated at over 337,000 by KDWP. They estimate another 500,000 at
Webster Reservoir.

Finding the Brant was icing on a great day of birding. We observed about 60
species in all.

However, the Ross's was not a species until recent decades and they were a very rare species in Kansas when the Ross's was declared a species. So, put all that into your equation and you will still have a very difficult time calculating a probability. That said, I think the blue-form should continue to be seen at a higher rate in the coming years.

I believe the current status of Blue C. rossii is that they are actually hybrids between Snow and Ross. Apparently, the blue morph gene doesnt occur in rossii. The BNA accounts references this, as I recall. Which would also contribute to their scarcity.

Subject: Blue morph snow geese
Hi All,
Speaking of blue morph geese, I was wondering whether the white morph snow goose population is greater than the blue morph snow goose population. Earlier this week, I saw several waves of snow geese flying above the northeast corner of Hays (heading northwest). I probably saw about 300 of them (over a ten minute period), and I think about 60% of them were blue morph (and about 40% white morph). That surprised me, because I had thought the white morph was more common. But I don't usually pay much attention to geese, so I don't know much about snow geese or how high blue morph numbers are compared to the white morph.

I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year.
Please send me your county updates, as well as updates to your Kansas life and year list totals (both 2018 and 2019), by Thursday, February 7. To participate you must have seen or heard a minimum of 75 species to be "listable" in a county. Send your updates to <kgroeneweg...> Please send only updates to your list totals and not your entire list of county totals. Let me know if you have any questions. Since I didn't post totals for January, I will include totals for 2018 as well as 2019.

All,

Dave Klema and I re-found the Brant reported mid-afternoon by Henry Armknecht and Jeff Calhoun at the Sylvan Grove (Lincoln Co.) sewer ponds just before 5:00 pm this evening and watched it for about 45 minutes, until it flew out to feed with a large mixed goose flock at about 5:30/ Pretty bird, looking to be of the Atlantic race. Maybe it will continue to use that area for a few days?!

The Topeka Youth Bird Club (funny that one was from Carbondale and two were from Kansas City) traveled around the lake today.
Best birds were a Winter wren, a Screech owl (heard but not seen), six Trumpeter swans and two Red-shouldered hawks.
We all decided the hawks were the best find because none of us had ever seen them eat a fish before! We did not get to see them catch it just fly and land with it.
Harper Howze of KC was our leader today. Some of you may remember meeting him at the last Wings & Wetlands when he was in 6th grade.

I took my brother in law, from Oregon, to Kanopolis Lake's Horse Thief Canyon area. The leucistic hawk ( I think a Red-tail) is still there. Both times I've seen the bird, it has been about a mile north of the trail head.
When at work this week, I was close to Kiowa. I saw a flock of Mountain Bluebirds. They are so beautiful with their powder blue color.
Yesterday, I visited Marion Lake. It is completely iced over, except for a few spots kept open by waterfowl. I was looking across the lake and thought I saw a snow covered hill. Wait a minute! It was mass of Snow Geese lifting off the lake. I went to the other side of the lake, and hiked to the mouth of French Creek Cove. There was an impressive mass of geese there. I could hear them from over a mile away! There were all the different species of geese there. Canada, White-front, Cackling, Snow, and Ross. It was one of those times birding that I wish I could package and give to others. The blue phase Snow geese are so impressive.
I have a question. Are there blue phase Ross geese? If there are, do people see them in Kansas on a regular basis? Jim Nickel Peabody KS

Back in December this hawk caught a cardinal in my Topeka yard. Made this

If you don't like seeing birds dying, don/t worry as the cardinal is
already dead when the video starts.

After making the video I'm feeling better about identifying accipiters.
And I'm getting better at spelling accipiter.

Subject: weird bird call in my yard

I got this recording while making a house sparrow video. I didn't
recognize it. Thought I'd submit to Ebird.

The audio is in this checklist: https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fview%2Fchecklist%2FS52261178&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7Cb2d98a0bd734433c0c2208d688508fae%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636846276928092927&amp;sdata=5%2BfUKgrFBUQSit%2FmIyyJBaKPqKYt1UnzgqrnBqdw848%3D&amp;reserved=0

A couple of people say Cardinal. So I submitted it as that.

But I've had other suggestions as well.

at second 7 there are 3 or 4 notes repeated that I didn't think are typical.

Maybe its a young male just learning to sing? I heard my first singing
cardinal this morning.

There was a Glaucous Gull feeding on a fish in the ice just south of the
Kansas Wildlife Exhibit in Wichita's Central Riverside Park about 2:30 p.m.
on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019. Close look at the eye on photos show a lighter eye
which may mean a 2nd Cycle bird.

Hi Folks,

The last few days, Wednesday and Thursday, I have seen hundreds of Hooded Mergansers in Riverside here in Wichita. I have seen them in the Little Arkansas River form Oak Park down to the dam near Central Ave. I always enjoy seeing the colorful Hooded Mergansers as they are very energetic, chasing each other around and the males displaying their unique marked heads. I also heard a Kingfisher near Oak Park.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

Subject: Bird deaths and extreme cold
Hi All,
The extreme cold and wind chills from this polar vortex have me wondering about what birds are most vulnerable, especially between here and the Great Lakes region. I suppose the smaller the bird, the less reserves they would have to keep warm by shivering, especially if they are having trouble finding food for an extended period of time. But I guess that some birds that flock together could sometimes huddle together in groups, sort of like penguins do during blizzards.
My understanding is that waterfowl can keep warm by shivering, but if their food sources are frozen for an extended period of time, I would think many of them would also be in peril. So my question is if there are any large die-offs from this storm, which species would most likely be the victims? Smaller forest birds which don't visit bird feeders or certain waterfowl species? I suppose the meat-eaters (such as hawks and owls) would do okay, being bigger bodied and also able to find easy prey among weakened (or dead) birds, etc. Given the rarity of such extreme cold, perhaps some bird counts could be done in the coming weeks and compared to the Christmas counts, especially in the Great Lakes region.
---------------Ken Kinman, Hays, Ks.
P.S. Thankfully Kansas only suffered a glancing blow that should have no significant effect on our bird populations. The last really extreme cold that I recall in Kansas was in December 1989, but thankfully I don't think that we had much snow with it. However, if climate change is destabilizing the polar vortex, are we likely to see more such events in the future?

Hi fellow Gull watchers,

If you have been seeing the posts from Hillsdale Lake in Miami County and would like to witness it with others who love to watch birds then join us at 8 am on the northern side of the dam. We will walk down to the trail along the dam scanning gulls, waterfowl and whatever else is around. My goal is to photograph Herring Gulls hopefully close and find the Black Ducks.
If you enter the state park there is a daily fee of $5.00 without a yearly pass. This will be a morning trip.
Please dress appropriately. Even though it will be warmer the wind coming off an ice covered lake is very cold.

Subject: Winter birds while state traveling, another BV and a book recommendation
Good afternoon, 1-28-19

I was asked to help lead a bus tour for the Milford Lake Eagle Day event
this past weekend. They do a great job with the event, and if you can make
in the future, do so!

I headed back to Galena from Junction City today and was happy to finally
see a few larger flocks of Lapland Longspurs and Horned Larks south of
Junction. My other winter outings have yielded zero to maybe a dozen of
either species this season.

I travel the state pretty frequently, and enjoy counting raptors on all of
my adventures. This 4 hour trip yielded 11 Bald Eagles (higher than typical
for me on this route), only 16 Red-tailed Hawks (much lower than typical),
2 Red-shouldered Hawks, 9 American Kestrels, and a total of 42 Northern
Harriers. They were apparently enjoying the high winds today. Seems like
this winter I’ve seen more male harriers than I have in years past.

To end my trip this afternoon, I had a single Black Vulture cross the Hwy
in front of me just west of Galena, near Chico Road. Could be a near future
norm, I suppose!

Also, I thought I’d recommend a relevant bird novel for any fellow book
nerds out there. I was thoughtfully given “The Feather Thief” as a
Christmas gift and have enjoyed the read. Kirk Wallace Johnson gives a
well-written and well-sourced account of a real bird theft at the Natural
History Museum at Tring, England back in 2009. Some of you may have heard
of Edwin Rist, and his bird heist. He stole 299 birds, some of which were
collected 150 years earlier by A.R. Wallace (a Darwin contemporary who came
up with natural selection at the same time as Darwin). Birds of Paradise,
Cotingas, and Resplendent Quetzals were a few of the species. For anyone
interested in birds, ornithology history, conservation, fly tying and an
intriguing story, it’s worth the read. (I find ALL of it fascinating!) For
those of you not familiar with the past struggles of bird conservation, the
author does a wonderful job summing up the plight of birds world wide
during the 1800-1900s for things like women’s fashion, private animal
collecting and salmon fly-tying. Really puts human impact on the
environment in perspective, as well as the importance of museum specimens
to science.

Stay warm this week and good birding,

Hi all,
Yes, very good weather today. But the sandhill cranes flying high overhead have the right idea: quickly head south to avoid the coming Arctic cold waves that begin to come our way tomorrow morning. Hoping for an early spring this year.

Subject: Baker Wetlands Survey
Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Nick Pumphrey, Ben Gerrard and Dan Larson
surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence Kansas. It was cold and still waters were
frozen.

We did have 44 species. 8:00-11:00 (3 hr.) Started at 28 deg WInd about
10mph. 11 miles.

Previous years.

2018 = 48

2017 = 50

2016 = 61

2015 = 44

2014 = 32

2013 = 30

2012 = 35

Probably our best bird continues to be the LeConte's Sparrow.The best place
to find them is if you have a map or look it up online is The native
grasses restored 1970-1974 or Riverside Meadows.Leconte's don't seem to fly
far look for a small yellowish sparrow when it flys.They seem to pish
during migration.But right now they hold tight unless you get near.

The complete ebird listing is at the site below.

Subject: Clinton SP eagles
As was reported yesterday, the bald eagles at Clinton lake (DG co) are
really something right now. I stopped by the marina this morning and there
was only a small patch of open water at the point at the entrance to the
marina. Lots of ducks, mostly goldeneye, common merg, and mallards -- I
failed to find a red-breasted merganser despite fervent wishing. I counted
63 eagles, the majority in the trees right above the ducks. Very fun to see!

I saw exactly one gull at the marina, an adult herring, though I could see
some in the distance over a larger patch of open water on the south side of
the lake.

Good birding,

Subject: Dingus Natural Area Bird List
A chilly wintery good evening to you all!

This is the time of year that I work on obscure projects of all kinds, or try to
wrap up loose ends before I start in on further obscure projects. This is one
of those situations!

The Kansas Ornithological Society has a property in Linn County called the
Dingus Natural Area. http://www.ksbirds.org/kos/Dingus/Dingus.htm It is
available for birding access to anyone. The above noted web page has a
map and history of the property.

We started compiling a bird list of birds that have been seen at the Dingus
Natural Area. A list had been kept by the Dingus family and we added to that
eBird sightings that are hotspotted to the Dingus property. That list is linked
to the above mentioned page but you can go there directly at:

http://www.ksbirds.org/kos/Dingus/Dingus_Check-list.htm

A few of the eBird sightings were actually from down the road at Mound City
Lake prior to Dingus having its own hotspot. Upon followup they were
removed from the master list that is posted. We are interested in adding
more bird species to this list. If you've reported you list to eBird, we have it.
But if you have older lists, or you don't report your sightings on eBird, and you
note birds on your Dingus list that aren't on the list on the web page, please
send me that information. I need species and date of sighting. Remember,
these are sightings from this property only - not from Mound City Lake or up
the road in the pasture, etc. but only from the Dingus Natural Area.

If you'd like to visit Dingus, then the spring KOS meeting may well be your
chance as Linn County is one of the target counties for the spring meeting,
May 10 - 12!

If you have any questions, please just drop me an email.

Thank you and stay warm!
Chuck

Subject: Swing SW KS: Birds, food
My brother Eric and I did a run to Morton County yesterday after my
wanderings to his place in Gray County on Friday. Some results are as
follows. (Bird numbers were few, variety was moderate). Weather was CCR on
Friday (cold, cloudy, rainy). Saturday was a late start due to the
weather. Music was also CCR.

5-18: Quivira. 4 Duck species (Canvasback, Mallard, Lesser Scaup, Common
Goldeneye) and three geese. I did have a mix of sparrows west of the refuge
on 170th to include a number of Field Sparrows; not a given for me this
time of year.

Cheyenne Bottoms: Not very birdy but lots of Common Mergansers.

Pawnee Rock (the rock) had little, Horsethief Reservoir had almost nothing
but the rain was setting in. Moving on to Gray County there were moderate
flocks of Lapland Longspurs.

1-19-19: Much of the expected on the way from Gray to Morton, County.
Highlights and/or lowlights;

Elkhart Sewage Lagoons: No birds on the water.

Turnerville Work Station (Morton). 4 individuals to include a Townsend's
Solitaire and a Ladder Back Woodpecker. I should have spent more time there.

K27 Bridge rest area (Morton): No birds

Point of Rocks Ponds: 2 Calling Virginia Rail and one Marsh Wren among a
few other species.

Richfield Cemetery (Morton): Endless White-crowned Sparrows and three
Black-billed Magpies. One Raven I'm still trying to sort out (had a weak
call unlike the Common Raven all I am pretty familiar with).

Sam's Pond in Syracuse: Only hundreds of geese and one lone Great-blue
Heron.

Northern Ford and Gray Counties were awash with Lapland Longspurs on my
way home Saturday evening. I even had one Short-eared Owl fly across the
road in Edward's County at dusk. I also had up to 50 Northern Harriers on
Saturday if not more.

I did have a number of stops with zero birds.

For those with hunger, Moosette's Cafe in Burdette is closed and for sale.
Quite a loss for the stretch from Larned to Jetmore. BUT, Judy's Cafe in
Jetmore serves a great burger. It is on the north end of the main street.
Porky's in Syracuse also continues a fine tradition of carry out burgers
and wraps. Though I will not vouch for the health benefits of such, the
taste is good (though the chicken wrap is pretty healthy). We passed on
eating in Elkhart with grief for the old Jim and I's still an issue. I
enjoyed that place.

Great but face paced jaunt.

On the birding front, on Thursday Jan. 18 while driving in the north side of
Erie (Neosho County) Jane and had had a good look at a Prairie Falcon flying
over. I believe it was cruising in from grasslands just north of town
looking for an easy meal. It is extremely windy (no snow) in Parsons
(Labette County) this morning. Lots and lots of ground feeding Juncos,
Sparrows and yard birds.



I retired Sept 1 from 46 years of practicing law. I remain Municipal Judge

especially the opportunity to learn from the many super birders in KOS and
the acquaintances and friendships. Now I'm stuck with my good friend Andrew

Subject: Gulls - Jefferson County
Mick McHugh shared his expertise with me yesterday as we scanned gulls at
the Gull field in Jefferson County. We couldn't find the previously seen
1st cycle Iceland Gull (Thayeri) but were able to find a 2nd cycle and
adult bird. The 1st cycle Glaucous Gull flew in half way through our scan
and an adult Lesser-Black Backed Gull was only present for a couple of
minutes. With an adult Franklin's Gull hanging out at Bowerstock Dam in
Lawrence we ended with 6 gull species after sorting through the many
Ring-Billed Gulls and Herring Gulls.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S51801485

A particularly striking bird within the group at the Gull field reminded me
of a sub-adult Herring (likely 4th cycle but possibly advanced 3rd cycle)
or Adult California Gull with a complete black ring and red gonys on a
straight bright orange/yellow bill with dark eye and red orbital ring. The
mantle was slightly darker, the gap was slightly downward bending (frowning
appearance of California), and the bird had a clean white neck but I wasn't
able to see leg color or wing projection. I guess that bird was able to fly
away yesterday without a definitive ID, Oh well maybe next time.

For those interested in the overlap of these characteristics here are a
couple of photos from elsewhere. Without further research I cannot remember
the percentage or likelihood of finding a dark eyed Herring at that age.

http://gull-research.org/smithsonianus/smith5cy/5cyfebr041.html
http://www.gull-research.org/california/5cy/5cymarch06.html

This bird in particular reminded me of how tough Gulls can be and Joseph
Miller's wonderful write-up at the end of last year. Reading back on his
post, it was uncanny how yesterday aligned with his ordering of species. It
was a fun day to scan the gulls with Mick who routinely amazes me with his
generous mentoring and sharing of knowledge with entertaining stories.
Good Birding,

Even here in Lawrence Kansas where we have recently moved, there are few

from a nearby brush pile some branches and now waiting for birds to
notice. We're in an old part of town too where the trees are big. I miss

Subject: Pottawatomie Co Northern Goshawk
This afternoon (Thursday) as I was almost to the parking area at the dumper
building at JEC I spied a longish hawk perched on top of one of the empty
coal cars. Being a right and proper birder I had my bins with me and was
able to ID my very first Northern Goshawk! It was a first year bird moving
to different parts of the coal cars and then on the ground obviously
working on a meal. About a half hour later after I had got my work orders
for the evening I went back out to see if I could relocated the bird, but
did not. I will be working the evening shift the next two days so I will
keep an eye out and send a timely report if seen.

As far a backyard birds go,I too am scratching what little hair I got left
wondering where the birds are. With all the snow that's been on the ground
it would be easy to assume the birds would be concentrated at feeder
stations.

The Goshawk was a lifer, and a couple of weeks ago while I was in Florida I
scored another in a Smooth-billed Ani so I can't throw a fit about the slow
activity in the backyard...

Thanks - yes I thought probably way too early but seeing the two sets of activity within minutes made me wonder. Maybe just investigating. Lovely to see the waxwings so close in any case!
Thanks for your response,

It's plenty early for either of these to be truly starting to nest. Lengthening
days will crank up the testosterone but we've got a ways to go yet. In general,
Northern Cardinals are going to start nesting mid to late April, but early April
isn't out of the question.

Cedar Waxwings are low density nesters in Kansas. They nest here but few
and far between. Because of their quiet nature, once they start nesting they
nearly disappear. Waxwings are late nesters, probably only American
Goldfinch is later. Egg laying is going to occur from June into early July. I've
ran Breeding Bird Survey routes in early June and have found non-breeding
flocks of Cedar Waxwings still hanging out together.

Subject: Question - nesting already?
Beautiful sight right outside the kitchen window this morning - a flock of 25-30 cedar waxwings. A couple of them were very interested in some fibrous material (seemingly man-made) that was hung up in the tree - both were tugging on it and pulling stretches of it out.  Also we had a male cardinal investigating vines growing up a tree trunk in a spot where cardinals nested last spring.  
So here's my question - is this a reasonable time to for them to think about nesting?  Seems early to me for small backyard birds like this but maybe those of you who keep records might have a better idea...
Thanks!

Subject: Re: Thoughts on no birds
Dear All,
I don't have any direct experience with zebra mussels, but I've read that their razor sharp shells are quite a nuisance to people walking along beaches and wading in shallow water. Therefore, I wonder if there have been any research that might suggest that ducks and wading birds might be getting injured from walking on those sharp shells. If so, could it result in those birds preferring to frequent areas that are still free of zebra mussels? Or course, it also doesn't help that zebra mussels eat the good algae but don't eat the blue-green algae which are causing toxic blooms.

Subject: Thoughts on no birds

Gary and Dan both asked a good question that mirror what I've been
fielding a lot of this year, "where are the birds". Since I really didn't
see anyone address it (although several of the responses were humorous) I
thought I'd tackle it.

Many natural factors (and human factors too for that matter) can impact
bird populations on a local or regional level. Birds have the same needs
the we have: food, water and shelter. The presence or absence of any of
these and the quality of same can inmpact how many and which birds are
present at any given time. Yeah, I know, Birds 101.

Weather extremes often are a driving factor on bird populations. There was
quite a bit of the northern Flint Hills that was hard hit by a major
drought from September of 2017 through July of 2018. While it did start
raining in August of 2018 there was aleady a significant loss in
traditional food sources as well as quality and amount of habitat. Lower
levels of native or traditional food supplies will disperse birds
elsewhere. As birds are usually going to be in areas outside of our
backyard feeding stations first, they will move on if food supplies are
limited or scarce. This also points out perhaps how nominally our backyard
feeding impacts bird populations. Much of reported low numbers of birds at
feeders, at least in the northern Flint Hills I feel can be attributed to
11 months of drought. Interestingly, about ten or so years ago there were
some major floods in SE Kansas. I had calls from residents there, in the
late summer and fall following the floods, asking the same questions.
Nearly every caller, when asked, would indicate loss of vegetation and
habitat from flooding.

Milford Lake had some high water levels this late summer (once it started
raining). In late October Milford peaked out almost 10 feet above normal
conservation pool level. Because of the length of time that the lake was
high, areas between the high water mark and conservation pool experienced
expected flood damage with a resulting loss of vegetative cover and with
that, food. When we conducted the Wakefield CBC, which covers a lot of the
wetland areas at the upper end of Milford Lake, we found large areas of
limited vegetation and ZERO birds. Lack of food and cover resulted in bids
going elsewhere.

The thing to keep in mind is that bird populations, as far as location,
are very dynamic within any given year and from year to year. But much of
it is going to come back to water, food and shelter.

Waterbird populations can be even more enigmatic. I suspect that food and
shelter are the driving factors still. The problem is that as humans we
look at the resources, as humans, not as birds would view it. I can think
back to trips to Colorado where I'd see what looked like excellent habitat
and stop to investigate only to find no birds! But if you found birds you
wanted to work the area well as there were always multiple species.

With migratory water birds we also have the function of "have we had
enough cold weather further north to drive them this far south?" I've
noticed over the past few years that Milford Lake has much lower gull
populations than we were having 10 years ago. Is it Zebra Mussels? Is it
blue-green algae? Is it other water quality issues or a food problem? Is
it simply a representation of declining bird populations in general?
Likely it's a combination of many or all of those factors.

Can I tell you exactly why bird populations at Point X, Y, or Z are higher
or lower than "normal? Nope. Christmas Bird Count numbers, on average
across the state, were lower than in past years both in number of species
and number of indiduals. So we simply see additional confirmation of what
we are seeing in our backyards. But I also won't rule out that we are used
to going to Point X to see birds and this year they are at Point Y?

Just some rambling thoughs on a cloudy afternoon.
