The Yankton CBC will be this Sunday, December 16, 2018. We always have room for more people. If you are interested in spending what is predicted to be a nice day in Yankton helping us find lots of good birds.

Subject: [sd-birds] Cummulative Summary of Christmas Bird Counts in SD and nearby areas of surrounding states



Nancy Hilding
President
Prairie Hills Audubon Society (PHAS)
P.O. Box 788, Black Hawk, SD 57718
<nhilshat...>
605-787-6466, has voice mail

Dear <SD-Birds...> & <NBHC...> and a few others,

Here is PHAS's summary of Christmas Bird Counts in SD and in the nearby areas of surrounding states.
Thanks to all the compliers & local birders who volunteer to do this every year .

We do this summary each year and post to our web site/Facebook page and e-mail our e-mail list, e-mail your list serves, and snail mail reduced version to our members as newsletter.

December 14th- January 5th
Audubon's 119th Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will be conducted this coming CBC season,
All counts will be held between the dates of Friday, December 14th, 2018 through Saturday, January 5th, 2019.

Each Christmas season tens of thousands of volunteers will count and record each individual bird and bird species they encounter during one calendar day, within a 15-mile diameter circle. This year, the Audubon Christmas Bird Count will mobilize over 72,000 volunteer bird counters in more than 2,500 locations across the Western Hemisphere. The censuses provide valuable data about the number of bird species and numbers of each species occurring within set geographic areas on an early winter day. The results are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. The Audubon Christmas Bird Count utilizes the power of volunteers to track the health of bird populations at a scale that scientists could never accomplish alone.

To date over 300 peer-reviewed articles have resulted from analysis done with Christmas Bird Count data. Bird-related citizen science efforts are also critical to understanding how birds are responding to a changing climate. This documentation is what enabled Audubon scientists to discover that 314 species of North American birds are threatened by global warming as reported in Audubons groundbreaking Birds and Climate Change Study.

http://climate.audubon.org
http://www.audubon.org/christmas-bird-count-bibliography

The tradition of counting birds combined with modern technology and mapping is enabling researchers to make discoveries that were not possible in earlier decades.

Birders of all ages are welcome to contribute to this fun, nationwide citizen science project, which provides ornithologists with a crucial snapshot of our native bird populations during the winter months. The volunteers break up into small parties and will follow assigned routes, which change little from year to year, counting every bird they see. If you are a beginning birder, on most counts you will be able to join a group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. Feeder watchers and backyard watchers are needed too.
Audubon's web page on CBCs.

What to bring?
Participants should bring lunch, drinking water, warm clothing and footwear.. Binoculars, field guides and spotting scopes are suggested, for those who have them. The five-dollar fee has been dropped to encourage more participation and the annual published report, (American Birds) previously available in paper has been made digital. http://birds.audubon.org/american-birds-annual-summary-christmas-bird-count

Subject: [sd-birds] Mina Lake bird feeders
I put up the feeders at Mina Lake last week. They were very active today. There was approximately 10 Pine Siskins, 10 Purple Finches and at least four Goldfinches. There was also a pair of Blue Jays and numerous pairs of Chickadees. A Downy and a Hairy Woodpecker made appearances. A lone Townsends Solitaire and around 30 Cedar Waxwings flew over. I did not see the juvenile Goshawk today that was camped out at the feeders two days ago. Best bird of the day was a Northern Cardinal male. First cardinal in Edmunds county for me. There is also an open patch on the lake that around 50 Mallards and a half dozen Snow geese and Canada geese are using.

I drove down Sunday to see the Black-legged Kittiwake (life bird) in Pierre and on the way down I saw one Golden Eagle, two Bald Eagles, one Prairie Falcon and about 6 Rough-legged Hawks. That was over 150 miles worth of travelling.

Went out to fill the feeders at Perry this morning and watched as the usual cast came in to dine, including a pair of cardinals, some Juncos including a nice pink-sided, BC Chickadees, WB Nuthatches, and a Red-Bellied Woodpecker. But I was surprised to find a juvenile Great-Blue Heron flying upstream and then walking back downstream on the bank. Has anyone seen on of these this late in the season? It seemed OK - didn't look like it was injured in anyway.

Subject: [sd-birds] Orman Dam today
This afternoon there was a nice sized hole of open water near the dam on
Orman Dam. It was packed with ~700 goldeneyes, ~25 Common Mergansers and 2
Long-tailed Ducks. There have been only 3 previous records of Long-Tailed
Ducks there; none in December. I spent a long time staring through my scope
at the flock to try to pick out a Barrow's Goldeneye, but all I could
identify were Commons.

Earlier in the day I travelled back roads northeast of Rapid City, to
Curlew Lake, Elm Springs, and Vale. Although I found a nice variety of
raptors, numbers were way below average and not one Red-tailed Hawk.
Looking through the hundreds of Horned Larks, I picked out three Lapland
Longspurs. No Snow Buntings.

Subject: [sd-birds] Snowy Owl and More
We took advantage of clear skies, sunshine, and light wind and birded from Whitewood-backroads to St. Onge-Arpan-Harding Road and return via Camp Crook Road. First good sighting was 4 Lewis’s Woodpeckers north of Whitewood near the old Eatherton farm. At the bridge over Belle Fourche river near Fruitdale, a male Barrow’s Goldeneye was floating down the river along with lots of ice floes. Near Orman Dam we saw a flock of about 100 Canada Geese. Orman Dam was completely frozen over as were other lakes. By now we were also starting to log lots of raptor sightings. By the end of the day we had observed 5 Golden Eagles, 5 Bald Eagles, 32 Rough-legged Hawks, 4 Red-tailed Hawks, 1 Northern Harrier, and 2 unidentified raptors. The Snowy Owl was found on old highway 85 about 15 miles off of US 85 and about 1 mile before the main road in Battle Creek wetlands entrance. Old 85 and most of Camp Crook road were snow covered with icy spots. We walked into Battle Creek lake and there was about 4 inches of snow. The lower end of Camp Crook road turned to all gravel and there were numerous flocks of Horned Larks feeding along the road.

The Sturgis Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 with an alternate bad weather date of December 20. Participants will meet 7:30 AM at McDonald's in Sturgis on 12/15. In the event unsafe weather requires use of the alternate date, I will post an announcement on Yahoo no later than 8 PM on December 14th. Forms for the count will be passed out at McDonalds on count day and electronic reporting will also be used whenever possible. New birders are welcome. Please let me know if you plan to participate if we haven’t already communicated.

Count week is three days before or after count day. Species not seen on count day, but seen from December 12-18 are count week sightings.

There will be a potluck at 12067 Crook City Rd, Whitewood SD following the count. We will be serving white chili (made with chicken), tea-coffee-punch, and provide all serving items. If possible, please bring a side dish such as bread, snacks, salad, desert, etc. We plan to be home around 3:30 PM, so come over any time after you finish your territory. Let me know if you need directions to our house. The Whitewood Parade of Lights is not a conflict this year as it is on 12/22.

I was very surprised to find a female Cape May Warbler eating woodpecker mix from my feeder today. It showed up many times throughout the day. According to SDOU's Seasonal Bird Reports, there are no winter records for this species.

Aberdeen Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday December 15th. Plan on meeting at the north side McDonalds around 7:30 and we'll see how many folks we have, create teams and get an assigned area. Plan on trying to get on the road by 8:00. Folks who are planning to join in please contact me by the 12th or so. I can get a head count and start making plans to see how many teams we can get, and about how much of the circle we can cover. IF there would be a need because of weather to reschedule that date would be determined later.

Subject: [sd-birds] White-winged dove?
Rebecca and I had what we assumed was a Mourning dove x Collared-dove hybrid at our place in Belle. It was the color of a mourning, but was the size if a collared and had a rounded tale. However, looking at the bird book it appears to have been a White-winged dove. It had a very clear white wing bar on folded wing and black cheek patch. The only thing that is goofy is the size, as white-winged are supposed to be smaller than mourning. Will try to get a picture tomorrow if it comes back.

I just finished this video on the invasive nature of house sparrows. Video
made in Kansas but information is good all over. I reference the farm in
the video as bluebirds and tree swallows are nesting on the farm where
there were once only house sparrows. I think they do especially well on our
farm.

There are 4 swans on the lake off of sage Creek Road to the south west of Wall. They are on the far side of the lake but with my scope I could not see any yellow spots at the base of the bill. So I they appear to be Trumpeter Swans, two of which are juveniles.

Meet at the Ben Reifel Visitor Center at 7:45am. If you are thinking of

Note that you can find all CBCs on the Audubon website (

Subject: [sd-birds] American Black Duck still at Marion Road dead end
At 10:30-10;45, the male American Black Duck found by Mick Zerr is still at the far southern end of Marion Road in Sioux Falls, about 7 blocks south of 57th Street. (You will be driving parallel to I-29 to the left.)

There are approx. 30-35 Mallards and the Black Duck is easily spotted as you can be close.

DO NOT TRY TO LEAVE YOUR CAR! The birds are spooky, no doubt they’ve been shot at. And you are close enough to count feathers from inside the car.

This is a good bird any more. Don’t wait long to go see him. Not rare, but always a good bird for South Dakota. Even out east, where they used to be more common, this is not a regular sighting. And many can be hybrids (Mallards will eventually take over the world, I swear.)

This bird was on the ice to the right by the large culverts at 10:30 and showed no sign of impure parentage.

Congrats to Mick. It’s always nice to find your own life birds!

A better look that last evening against the sun. So go A. M. or Noon.

Subject: [sd-birds] Bon Voyage to the Anna's Hummingbird
The Anna's Hummingbird continued to visit our feeder through November 14, 2018.  On the 13th, the  feedings that we observed were still brief but became more frequent (19). We thought he might be loading up to continue his migration.  His behavior changed Tuesday afternoon with more flying and hovering in the spruce and boxelder trees; was he testing his wings or catching bugs?
On Wednesday morning, November 14, he came to the feeder at 6:35 AM, fed briefly, then left.  He returned at 6:44 and sat on the feeder, drinking but not moving from the perch until 7:24 AM.  We think he was fully fueled up for the next leg of his journey.  We have not seen him since and are relieved that he took flight on a warm day with a smorgasbord of airborne bugs to keep him going!
We'd like to send a special thanks to Randy and Ricky for their expertise in confirming the identity of this amazing bird.  We'd also like to thank Nancy and Jocie for sharing the joy of watching this little charmer in our backyard.
I have attached a link to a the final video of the Anna's Hummingbird from Wednesday morning.

Subject: [sd-birds] Bald Eagle nest building?
On 26 Oct. I saw an adult Bald Eagle near Spring Creek along Lower
Spring Creek Road in Pennington Co. Yesterday one was in the same
area, and this time I observed a large nest in a central crotch of a
large cottonwood tree. It's not far from the road, visible with naked
eyes, and it's possible it's been there awhile and I missed it, but I
doubt it. Could this be a brand-new nest? It's just east of the second
bridge as you're travelling from Hwy. 79, and south of the road.
There were two other adult BAEA farther east on LSC road, apparently
feeding on the ground in the area of the prairie dogs. Also a Golden
Eagle in that general area.

Subject: [sd-birds] Whitewood to Orman Dam and Whitewood Report
We took advantage of the good weather today and birded Whitewood-St. Onge-Orman Dam. Birds were scare with only 23 species. Raptors included Bald Eagle-1, Northern Harrier-4, Rough-legged Hawk-6 and Red-tailed Hawk-2. Belle Fourche Reservoir (Orman Dam) was mostly open and had one large raft of Canada Geese, a few Buffleheads, and Ring-necked Gulls. Small lakes along our route were mostly iced over. We did see three Lewis’ Woodpeckers in the Whitewood-St. Onge area, 2 Horned Larks at the Rocky Point (Orman) campground, and 1 Great Horned Owl. The rest of the sightings were common winter residents.

At our home feeders 1.5 miles south of Whitewood we have had lots of winter resident birds, but almost no migrants. There was a Belted Kingfisher on the creek 11/11. We also had the Sharp-shinned Hawk visit the feeders on 11/11-12. The Sharp-shin has learned to stand on our brush pile and try to scare out birds in the brush pile.

Very interesting. Here is a bird I took photos of in June 2011. I called it a Chestnut-sided X Golden-winged cross at the time. I believe I reported about it but pretty sure I didn't add any photos at the time. Looking back at my notes I said it sang a Chestnut-sided song with no buzzy quality at all to it.
