Taking gravel roads to Ames this afternoon I was happy to see three Common
Nighthawks Southwest of Tedesco Learning Center flying South. Then one on
the power line a mile West and another a mile East of the center that sat

Subject: [ia-bird] Prairie City Black-bellied Whistling Duck Brood
About a dozen people stopped to see & photograph the BB Whistling Duck
brood, early this morning. The group included a couple of DSM Camera Club
people, but I didn't recognize any birders.



One Prairie City local said the property owner checked the nest (after the
brood had moved to the pond) and there were 8 unhatched eggs. There are 18
ducklings, and counting the 8 unhatched eggs, the 26 egg total may indicate
a dump nest. This person did say there was believed to be a 3rd BB duck.



Have attached 3 photos, including one of the hen brooding the youngsters on
shore, a 2nd photo with the ducklings lined up and ready to hit the water,
and a 3rd photo of the parents leading the brood across the pond.



I hate to use that over-used "C" word, but they were cute!

Dana Siefer for the great find and to all those who reported its continued
presence. Because of these reports, I was confident I could wait (albeit
impatiently)to see this lifer while en route to Colorado on a pre-planned
trip instead of a separate trip down for it.

Thank you for mentioning that, Paul. There was also an article on the
second confirmed Iowa breeding of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks published
in the winter 2021 issue, Volume 91, no. 1, written by Jamie McCoy. This
nesting was in Clinton County. *A Review of Black-bellied Whistling-Duck
Occurrence in Iowa *by Jim and Steve Dinsmore was also in the winter 2020
issue.

The Prairie City nesting was a little different because the actual nest
site was found and observed by local birders.

Also, a correction on the number of ducklings--photos show somewhere
between 15 and 20 ducklings, although it is hard to count them.

I believe this is the third documented nesting. The first was in 2019 in Mills County followed by one in 2020 in Clinton County. I suspect with the plethora of sightings this summer there will be others as well. It looks like Black-bellied Whistling-Duck has become a staple of Iowa’s avifauna although still notable.

Hey I-Birders,

Karen and I were just watching two fledgling GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHERS
from our living room window. They were feeding on some unripe pokeweed
berries in the back yard. I don't recall seeing young of this species
before, and am happy to think they were nested in the woods behind our
house. In other yard news, the tribe of young TUFTED TITMICE continues to
visit our feeders every day. They continually express their buzzy opinions
when here, loud enough to be heard from inside the house. A young buteo
showed up on Friday and seemed interested in the chipmunks that form the
clean-up crew beneath our seed feeders. Pretty sure it was a BROAD-WINGED
HAWK. I look forward to more avian youngsters making our yard part of
their home.

Good Birding,

Stuart Sparkman

Subject: [ia-bird] Maskunky Marsh
If anyone in the Maskunky Marsh, Mahaska County area is looking for
shorebirds the marsh is worth a trip. Over 200 shorebirds visible. The
water levels are perfect today.

I’m not great with shorebirds, but there are at least Semipalmated Plover,
Solitary Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpiper, and of course
Killdeer. With the numbers there must be a real treat or two in there I’m
not spotting.

Also enjoying 39 Great Blue Heron and over 400 American White Pelicans.

Happy Birding,
Diane

Subject: [ia-bird] Summer data submission (not a sighting)
Hello All!

We've now officially wrapped up the summer field season (June and July) and
it's been an interesting one with the first and second Limpkin records for
the state, the continuing spread of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks, not to
mention a photographed Snowy Owl!

If you do not submit your sightings through eBird please consider sending
them in to the Iowa Ornithologists' Union directly at
https://iowabirds.org/Birds/Reporting.aspx

BUT you don't need to submit everything! For the field report in Iowa Bird
Life we are really interested in uncommon or out-of-season birds, birds
that are not typical for that part of the state, and unusually high counts.
Some good resources to check these can be found here:

https://iowabirdrecords.org/ReviewList.aspx
https://iowabirds.org/Birds/EarlyLate.aspx

Review list species require documentation to the Records Committee (I just
submitted my Limpkin report a little bit ago) so please submit those as
well.

Thank you to everyone that has contributed data in the past!

Good birding,

Paul Skrade
Decorah, Winneshiek

Subject: [ia-bird] Black and White
Hey I-Birders,

Sorry for a 1 day late report. Yesterday Karen and I were walking the
pups along the Des Moines River when a familiar sound made our heads snap
around. We managed a very nice look at a male BLACK AND WHITE WARBLER in a
trailside tree. We also had a RED-HEADED WOODPECKER nearby, not typically
seen on this trail outside of migration. Makes me think things are
starting to move a little bit.
On the home front, a vociferous tribe of recently fledged TUFTED
TITMICE charmed me as they explored one of our large oaks in the back yard
this afternoon.


Good Birding,

I was at little Storm Lake lake before sun up and and the bird showed itself for over an hour, feeding. Just as the sun hit the far shore, well not really shore,  but the cat tails, he flew to that area and began to preen.Wonderful! Life bird for me. Thank you Dana for your help and Candace and anyone else who saw the bird and reported it.Julie Johnston, Packwood Sent from my U.S.Cellular© Smartphone

Someone turned on the shorebird faucet at Maskunky Marsh, Mahaska County.
They are plentiful today. Along with the usual suspects we have one
American Avocet still in breeding plumage, two Ring-billed Gulls, and a
juvenile Franklin Gull.

Also enjoying 100+ American White Pelicans.

Happy Birding,
Diane

Subject: [ia-bird] Thank You - Limpkin
Thanks to everyone who provided guidance to find Iowa’s Limpkin. It was
right where it was suppose to be!

For those thinking about venturing to Buena Vista County, do it! It’s an
easy walk along the dike, about 1/8 of a mile. Bring a scope for best
viewing.

What a nice area. I also watched 7 Great Blue Heron, too many Wood Ducks
to count, and a nice variety of other shorebirds.

Happy Birding,
Diane

Subject: [ia-bird] Summer finds
A lovely day to go out "bird-stalking," which is what my hubby says I
do. 😁 Mulberry trees are great attractors for birds, too--including
redheaded woodpeckers (both adults & juvies).

Along with some of the 'usual & customary' birds of summer, some of my
finds that made me happier are
blue grosbeak males (2, 2 different places)
cedar waxwing
warbling vireo
furtive rose-breasted grosbeaks.
I thought orchard orioles were vamoose, but one adult male was dining in a
mulberry, & that made my day. But not as much as the eastern
towhee--singing behind the pickup so I couldn't see him. I had reception in
SE Wildwood Park, so tried playing songs & calls. The bird sound shifted to
in front of me, actually 10 ft straight above the pickup, a very intrigued
male towhee trying to figure out whom his competition was. I felt kinda
mean taunting him, so quit playing the calls & still got some very good
looks.

Happy birding, all you all!
-Kristy, Plymouth Co

Subject: [ia-bird] Bird song question
Those of you with good ears & an affinity for bird song: help!

Scrambling around making everyone else's breakfast with no glasses & no
phone handy with a song id ap, I heard a bird this morning. When I had a
break, of course it had stopped singing!!

I know I've heard this bird in other places in the past... but wasn't able
then to figure it out or id it.

I *think* the musical interval is a 5th, maybe a 6th, repeated 4 or 5 times
in succession, then a break, then repeated. (9 years of piano but no music
degree, & no keyboard/pinano at home with which to verify the interval).
Quality is clear (like the quality of a robin) - not buzzy or flute-like or
shrill, etc .
Before 6 o'clock in the morning.
Very near in our basic small-town backyard & neighborhood, which is a block
away to a golf course, small creek, & the local grain elevator. I do have
bird feeders up with the usual safflower/sunflower mix.

Thanks for any help or pointers you might offer.

I'm not a snail expert, but these look like the Chinese Mystery Snails that used to be sold in aquarium shops.  They have spread.  We have many in NW Wisconsin on the lake where we have our cabin.  It is 40 miles south of Duluth. Otters love to eat them. Here is a link from Cornell with a map of their occurence. It shows some in Iowa.http://essex.cce.cornell.edu/environment/invasive-nuisance-species/aquatic-invasives/chinese-mystery-snailSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

I'm no snail expert, but to my knowledge no apple snails have yet invaded
Iowa. I'm attaching a cropped photo I took of the Limpkin at Little Storm
Lake on Saturday, with a snail in its beak. That definitely does not look
like an apple snail. I'm not sure what species it might be, but it kind of
looks like some type of river or freshwater pond snails I've seen in the
past. But I'm a birder, not a "snailer".

The lovely Limpkin put on a great show from 10:40 to 11:35 a.m. at the pool
just North of the bridge between Little Storm Lake and Storm Lake. It was
gobbling up snails.--Mark Proescholdt, Liscomb---Thanks, Dana!!

One of the stops was in Jill Armentrout's neighborhood, where we did find one MISSISSIPPI KITE  just a couple of houses down the street from Jill's home.

Subject: [ia-bird] Indigo Buntings + Red-headed Woodpeckers
A number of male Indigo Buntings have been eating reed canary grass seeds
from the seed heads in the road ditch across from our house. We've seen
them several times since Sunday evening, and up to 5 at a time, all of them
blue. They're out there again now, hanging out in a group. We haven't
seen any females or juveniles lately.

Red-headed Woodpeckers seem to have had a successful nesting season in our
neighborhood. We see adult and juvenile RHWO in the trees, at the peanut
feeder, chasing here and there, and on electric poles. The most juveniles
I've see at one time is three. Some times they take chase with Eastern
Kingbirds.

There are many young of Downy, Hairy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers too.

Subject: RE: [ia-bird] Limpkin question - not sighting
Right. If you read the article I posted, these are invasive snails that both Limpkins and Snail Kites seem to be somewhat adapting to. Snail Kite young were having trouble with the larger snails. From the article:

“What is truly remarkable, however, is that these hardy invasive snails seem to be supplementing the declining native P. paludosa and have jump started Limpkin and Snail Kite population growth. Both species have been documented readily feeding on invasive snails, and the latter may even be adapting to this novel prey (Snail Kites are increasing in body size and bill length).”

Apple Snails are a favorite food (perhaps the primary food) for Snail Kites in Everglades N.P. and other areas of South Florida.

Not sure of the range of Apple Snails, but would doubt it reaches the latitude of Iowa and Ohio.

It would be interesting to put a GPS tracking device on some of these birds to see if they survive the winter. If they do survive, where do they over-winter, and where do they end up next year?



Could this be the start of a migratory population? Is it simply young birds being dispersed, for whatever reason?

From the limited reading that I have done, it seems Limpkins have an infinity for Apple Snails. Do I understand correctly that Apple Snails are not native to Iowa?



When I look thru my photos from Saturday morning, the Limpkin is definitely eating snails. If there is a “snail expert” in Iowa, it would be interesting to know what species of snail is being consumed by the Limpkin.



This might help us understand why Limpkins are showing up in the Midwest.



There is getting to be a pretty good-sized collection of snail shells around one of the matts of vegetation that the Limpkin stands on to devour its prey.

That is good to know Ed. From what I have read, the invasive Apple Snail cannot withstand our cold winters (well, at least not yet). Maybe the Limpkins can help control the invasive Chinese Mystery Snail.

Subject: [ia-bird] Limpkin question - not sighting

From the limited reading that I have done, it seems Limpkins have an infinity for Apple Snails. Do I understand correctly that Apple Snails are not native to Iowa?

When I look thru my photos from Saturday morning, the Limpkin is definitely eating snails. If there is a “snail expert” in Iowa, it would be interesting to know what species of snail is being consumed by the Limpkin.

This might help us understand why Limpkins are showing up in the Midwest.

There is getting to be a pretty good-sized collection of snail shells around one of the matts of vegetation that the Limpkin stands on to devour its prey.

Subject: [ia-bird] Limpkin-Little Storm Lake still visible Sun afternoon
The Limpkin was moving in and out of the reeds near the northern end of the
marsh around between 1-2 pm today. Sometimes the bird would come out in
plain sight, but then would stealthily dissolve back into the reeds. I did
get to see it eat 3 snails, whereby it would hammer it with its beak. Many
thanks to Loren and Babs Paddleford from Bellevue, NE & Dr. Mark Welford
for helping me finally find the bird in my scope. It was great to also see
Ann Johnson while I was there. This was a a life bird for me and my Mark-we
had missed seeing the Limpkin near Gretna, NE earlier this morning (we are
driving home from Wyoming) so we made a slight detour off of Hwy 20 to try
for this bird, glad we did.

We arrived at 11:20 this morning, and the
Limpkin was directly across the road from the little parking lot. Staying
along the edge of the reeds on the west side.
After having lunch we returned to watch the Limpkin move slowly along the
marsh to the south where it was visable till returning to the reeds. We
left at 2:00.
Thanks to Dana for this fabulous bird.

Dear Jill Armentrout and all,
The 2 Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were still present at West Branch last evening at 5 PM.

After looking for the Mississippi Kite twice, once at 9:15 AM for 30 minutes and again at 11:15 AM
for 30 minutes at 3901 Richmond in NE Des Moines, I left for home and roughly a block east on
Richmond, one Kite was sitting in a dead tree on the north side of the street.

The Limpkin was present from 5:45 a.m. thru 8:00 a.m. this morning. And I was able to enjoy the company of other birders such as Keith Dyche, Don Poggensee, and Dana Siefer. I am sorry I left before getting to see Doug Harr again.

Many thanks to Dana Siefer for locating and reporting this wonderful bird. Not only is this list serve very helpful for those of us who like to see unusual birds, but it is also good to run into birder friends that we might not otherwise see very often.

For those who have not seen it on Facebook, the pair of Black-bellied
Whistling-Ducks in Prairie City has been seen frequently entering a cavity
in a tree in someone's front yard. Some of the behaviors indicate they may
have eggs now. The home owners and neighbors are excited and keeping an eye
on them. They are creating quite a stir in this small town.

Following up on an eBird report from Eric Ollie about some Eastern Whip-poor-Wills, I went over to the Luther Bridge last evening, which is 4 miles west of Luther on 270th St. About a half hour after sunset, I easily heard 2 near the west end of the bridge.

Subject: [ia-bird] Mississippi Kite
One last post about my pair of Kites. They are in my Ash tree every day morning and evening. One of them calls out as he comes in and telling everyone he is here. I think I might be able to see a nest which I originally thought was a squirrel nest. My address is 3901 Richmond ave, and I have two ash trees and they seem to like the one farther south on the west side of my house. I have talked with my neighbors so folks know if they see you not to worry! I am so blessed to have them share my neighborhood. First seen the adult pair June 18th.

I changed my eBird to Great Egret on these birds.
At a distance and in photo they looked much smaller, the necks were very
short without the usual pronounced curve. The beak coloration difference

Yesterday a friend and I went to Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt (Polk Co.) and
heard the Prairie Warbler that has been there since late May. We were not
able to see it, other than a speck seen briefly flying into a tree. It
seemed to always perch on the other side of the canopy as it moved around
its territory on the other side of the canal. Merlin refused to acknowledge
its existence despite clearly showing the song on the spectrogram.

Also of interest was a female type Blue Grosbeak on the west side of the
Skunk River just west of the Prairie Warbler site, in the Bishop Grasslands
Management Unit.

At the time I left about 8 o’clock six people had seen the Limpkin well. Where is the end it was being seen in a bay that could be seen from the bridge.  Looking straight out from the bridge been poured you’re right finding the deep narrow Bay he was in the very back of that. It had also been seen earlier very well along the Dyche which is on the right hand side of the bridge about 100 yards down walk up and scope the horror of glass the reeds on your left-hand side of the Dyke.

I think I found that Limpkin at Little Storm Lake in Buena Vista County.  It's a pretty simple walk down the dike to take a look at it.  You can park down in the ditch on highway 110 where it meets the dike.   It was there when I left.

Subject: [ia-bird] Re: Black-bellied Whistling Ducks- West branch
The pair were seen this morning by me from ~ 9:30-10:30, resting on the
south side of the pond amongst some dead weeds on the shore. To get to a
viewing areas of the ponds, head north on 4th St., then turn left on Reagan
Blvd. You can turn right at Lincoln St. and follow it left to the pond or
turn right on either of the "new" roads that also turn right off of
Reagan. This is a trailer court neighborhood (private property), so be
mindful of that. I was able to see the ducks by stepping out of my car and
staying up on the shoulder of the road. There is a fence around the pond.
The area is peaceful and has a nice array of birds- Spotted Sandpiper,
several swallow species, a couple of Wood Duck families, and a lower pond
overflow area that would be good for rails I would think.

When I see them fly, the wings are narrow not like a RTH. I don’t think they are Cooper Hawks but I leaving shortly for camping and hope someone can tell me what they are.

Subject: [ia-bird] Bunting Behavior
One year ago, July 10, 2021 we watched an indigo bunting appear to want
to come in a window. It stayed around for several days. Yesterday,
exactly one year later, an indigo bunting appeared in the same place,
doing the same things: perching on the window (see photos) fluttering up
as if catching insects, and returning to the ledge. It all seems a bit
spooky. Is it the same bird? Is it a bit "off?"

The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

Subject: [ia-bird] Re: FW: Snowy Owl
Yes, the one *I believe I saw* did look like either a female or juvenile
Snowy with more barring like this one, yet white overall. Karl, my husband
and I think we possibly saw a Snowy Owl as we drove through northern Iowa
on July 3rd. It was sitting on a sign on the west side of 218 as we headed
south near the exit to Charles City. It's back was to us as we approached,
my husband was driving, and what caught my eye was the whiteness of it and
also, it had it's wings fanned out oddly like is was hot or perhaps sunning
itself(?)....at any rate, as we drove by, I did see the front of the bird
and it certainly looked like an owl, albeit, I saw it for mere seconds as
we drove by.

Around June 5th, I was visiting friends north of Marshalltown (just south
of Green Mountain, on Garwin Road) & one small round brownish bird was in
the grass on the shoulder of the black top. Definitely not a female
pheasant, & I'd never seen a bobwhite--only heard them, 50+ years ago as a
kid on Dad's farm & timber 7 miles south of Marshalltown.
Back when dinosaurs roamed, sigh...

Hi Ann,



I didn't find out about it until after it left, but there was a Snowy Owl sighted, between New Hampton and Lawler, IA in late June this year. Enclosed picture was taken June 29th with a cell phone.



I don't have all the information, but evidently it was spending time on this light pole, at the entrance to the local ethanol plant. Corn would spill as grain trucks came and left, meaning lots of mice, voles, etc. Easy pickings for the owl.



Has anyone else reported seeing it? Of course, I'm extremely disappointed that I missed out on the opportunity to get some really great pictures and witness it so close as it was. Has there been reports of a Snowy in Iowa during the summer before?

Missippi Kites have been nesting in West Des Moines for a good number of
years now, as well as in Ottumwa. It would not be surprising at all if they
were now nesting in other Des Moines metro areas as well now.

It would be wonderful if you would share the exact location so others could
see them as well. It would be good to submit your findings to the IOU
records committee as well.

Subject: [ia-bird] Northern Bobwhite
Good to hear of other Bobwhite sightings. The latest addition to my house list was an unexpected flock of Northern Bobwhites. Feeding in the grass behind my house next to a shrubby wooded area with their heads bobbing up and down were 8-10 of them.

Oddly I have yet to hear the usual Bobwhite call but after playing all of the other sounds made by Bobwhites there was one I did hear, sort of a ticking sound. I heard it while I was trying for another look, it was coming from my wooded area and I wondered what it was.

Habitat seems right but location of that habitat really unlikely for Bobwhites. I am in Des Moines, two blocks south from I235 and two blocks east of 63rd street. Other than the small creek and woods it is very urban. My last sighting of Bobwhites has to be 20 years ago along a country road.

Have been watching for them since the first time which was around June 20th but only the one sighting but my neighbor has had them in his yard a couple of times. It is curious there have been others seeing them.

Subject: [ia-bird] desperately seeking ID
So, I have this pair of birds I have been watching and one night I thought for sure they were Mississippi Kites but I have 400 shots starting with my iPhone, the 24-105, 70-200 and finally 100-400. When I see them fly, the wings are narrow not like a RTH. I don’t think they are Cooper Hawks but I leaving shortly for camping and hope someone can tell me what they are. They love my huge Ash trees, I took these 30-40 feet from the tree. Thanks for any help!

Come to think of it a week ago today while canoeing we heard a bob white calling from the west bank of the Des Moines river about halfway between Boone and Ledges

We sat and listen to it for quite a while

This makes me think there has been a release of birds in central Iowa because on May 30 I heard one call at Brenton Slough! I don't know where they might have flown in from.

Northern Bobwhite, Big Creek State Park, Polk Co. July 9, 2022. While
fishing with our son on Big Creek Lake this morning I heard two Northern
Bobwhite calling for twenty minutes from the East side of the lake. This
makes me think there has been a release of birds in central Iowa because on
May 30 I heard one call at Brenton Slough! I don't know where they might
have flown in from.

Subject: [ia-bird] Good birds at various central Iowa sites!
Since we're moving into mid-summer and a lot of birds are starting to quiet
down, I've reduced the number of times I go out birding. But with today's
better temps and lower humidity, I took off from Ogden early, headed down
to Neal Smith NWR, then returned through other sites. It turned out pretty
well!

I hit Brenton Slough first, having at least 9 *Great-blue Herons* fishing
in the roadside marshes, plus a *Green Heron* perched atop a tall dead
tree. Stopping nests at Saylorville's Sandpiper Rec. Area, the *Blue
Grosbeak *continued singing there.

At Neal Smith NWR I finally found a couple of *Henslow's Sparrows* (FOY) in
the open old prairie. Then, at the refuge's savanna site I had the
annual resident *Yellow-breasted Chat*. Next, I hiked the 2 mi. Tallgrass
Trail and found 5 *Bell's Vireos* along that trail.

After the refuge I went to Runnels, headed down on Hwy. 316 and a
*Northern Mockingbird* flew across the highway about 3/4 mile before
crossing the DSM River. Then I stopped at the overlook along Hwy 319 on
the south side of the upper reservoir and had a *White-eyed Vireo* (FOY)
singing in nearby shrubs.

I stopped in Ankeny on the way home and saw one *Western Kingbird *right by
Karl's Chevrolet, where they usually appear annually. Then by Culver's
about 2 blocks north (where Dianae Dentlinger reported seeing WEKIs
yesterday), there was another one perched atop some dead branches on a tree.

It ended up being a good birding day with 62 species on my day's
list--although that's the smallest number I've had in over 2 months.
Summer is obviously here, but I hope everyone has great birding!
