Subject: [ia-bird] Connecticut Warbler - L. Ahquabi SP (Warren)
To add to the many reports of this species lately, I made a quick run
through Lake Ahquabi late this morning and immediately heard a Connecticut
Warbler loudly singing just across the road from the boat ramp. I tried to
creep up on it and only got a very brief look at a nice male singing his
heart out. Most of the time he stayed hidden although I felt like I should
be able to just reach out and grab him. And then it was quiet although I
never saw it leave. They sure are skulkers! Interestingly, after not seeing
any thrushes yesterday, there were still several Swainson's moving through
the woods.

I was at the park yesterday morning and found 3 Mourning, 3 Canadas and 2
Goldenwinged Warblers along with a few other species. I was in the south
ravine. The overall numbers were down but still a lot of migrants. No
Connecticuts.
Around 7PM last night, We had a Canada and Blackpoll (female) show up in

Subject: [ia-bird] Cerro Gordo Co. Birding-Clear Lake
With weather finally improving, Rita and I headed out to do some birding in the Clear Lake area. First we found 36 SANDERLING in a flooded farm field (shorebirds have been very scarce around here), then an AMERICAN BITTERN over at Zirbel Slough. McIntosh State Park was a bonanza of warblers and other migrants, with the highlight being a beautiful YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER high in the oak trees along the lake. Ventura Marsh contained several late species of ducks, including Ruddy, Ring-necked, Scaup, and Redhead. Finally, another fallout of warblers and other migrants at a marsh on 170th St. in Union Hills, with a surprise PROTHONOTARY WARBLER found along the marsh edge, Cape May Warblers, Blackpolls, Scarlet Tanagers buzzing by in every direction, even a few late Palm Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers. Also seen in this area were a couple of UPLAND SANDPIPERS, a species that seems to be becoming very hard to find in North Iowa.

I finally saw the Worm-eating Warbler at the Croton unit of Shimek 3 miles
west of Argyle in Lee county. From the parking lot, take the logging trail
back to the first creek crossing, but instead of crossing the creek, veer
right and go along the secondary creek back to the first ravine. That is
where I found the bird. there were actually a pair and very active and I
think they are on their nesting area.
Also, in the area of the creek crossing, was a silent Black-billed Cuckoo.

Subject: [ia-bird] Linn Co. birding
Birders,

I ran into Gerald Teig, a Linn Co. expat, at Wickiup Hill and we spent a
few hours birding together. Wickiup's warbler diversity and numbers were
way down since last weekend, but we did see a lot of flycatchers. We had a
couple Olive-sided and Yellow-bellied. This continues to be the most
amazing spring for Yellow-bellied Flycatcher in my six years of birding in
Iowa. Most springs I get 1-2 and every time I've been out lately I see at
least 2-3.

On the west side of Lents Bottoms Rd in the fluddle, just north of Power
Plant Rd we had a Yellow-headed Blackbird, a county first for me. A male
Redhead, male Ring-necked Duck and a Lesser Scaup pair rounded out the
waterfowl. At Pleasant Creek a Common Tern was briefly accompanied by
three Caspians. We got really solid looks at the Common Tern as is
eventually sat on a buoy for a long time at the beach.

At the marsh south of Center Point, we were unable to detect Common
Gallinule or Least Bittern. A Sandhill Crane was there and we heard an
Alder Flycatcher.

Good birding,
Brandon Caswell

At McFarland Park north of Ames this morning I saw a Summer Tanager along

were in great abundance; I saw 15 species. These included several
Blackburnian, a couple of Blackpoll, a Mourning Warbler that provided me
with a great look and also sang which was quite nice, and great looks at 4
Canada Warblers. Chestnut-sided Warblers, Least Flycatchers, Red-eyed
Vireos, and Yellow-throated Vireos were plentiful..

Subject: [ia-bird] Polk Co. bird diversity
Before a mid-afternoon meeting in Ames today, I birded for about 6 hours,
from Ogden down to Saylorville Lake, Ashworth Park, and Chichaqua Green
Belt, mostly all in Polk Co. I ended up with 70 species, but warblers were
just barren at most locations--I only ended up with 4 species (*Wilson's* was
best). But there was a great variety of other species. Some of my best
for the day were:

*Caspian Terns* (FOY) at Saylorville Lake
*Acadian Flycatcher* along Bill Riley Trail at Ashworth Park (photo
attached) singing its heart out trying to order "*PI*-zza"
*Western Kingbird *(FOY) at usual place in Ankeny--perched on chain link
fence across from Dewey Ford
*Black-crowned Night Heron* (FOY) 1st year plumage seen as one flew away
with its back to me (small chance it may have been a 1st year
Yellow-crowned, but unlikley)

Subject: [ia-bird] CT warblers, Johnson Co.
IA birders,

The Warbler Walk today was pretty exciting. The group was at least a
dozen, with four of the five regular walk leaders present. No singing bird
was going to go undetected. ;)

We had two different Connecticut Warblers than the previously reported bird
a few days ago. At the Magic Corner Elliot Stalter pointed out a small,
yellowish bird that briefly perched up and flew off. I was lucky enough to
get a diagnostic photo, female CT Warbler. We then got a call from Mark
Madsen, saying that he had heard a CT Warbler on his walk out. When we
arrived at the spot, we didn't hear the bird immediately. Then it started
singing about 10 feet off the ground in a tree, about 75 feet from the
trail. Someone in the group got on it and then we stood there for at least
20 minutes watching it sing, recording it singing and taking photos. It
was amazing.

I later continued birding with Dean Hester and Jayden Bowen. We briefly
hit up Waterworks Prairie Park for rails, but the water was too high. We
then hit up Squire Point Trail and it was still fairly active.

We finished with 19 species of warblers.

Good birding,
Brandon Caswell

warblers: Canada, Blackpoll, Magnolia, A. Redstarts, Chestnut-sided, N.
Parula, Nashvilile, Golden-winged, C. Yellowthroat, Yellow, and Tennessee.
Also Scarlet Tanagers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Acadian Flycatcher, and a
R-eyed Vireo. Swainson's Thrushes are still here, but they are less
numerous than this weekend. We had to roll up the nets because we could
not keep up. An Ovenbird is also singing on campus.

Subject: [ia-bird] PRAIRIE WARBLER, Des Moines area
Hey IBirders,

My bird luck was activated today- this is my second post of the day.
Harney and I walked the trail along the Des Moines River in NW Des Moines
between 5 and 6 this afternoon, and had a very unexpected encounter. There
was quite a bit of bird activity despite still breezy conditions. I had
already seen about a dozen LEAST FLYCATCHERS, averaging about one every 100
feet, when a YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER appeared, and gave me fantastic
looks. There is a strip of trees between the trail and the river which is
frequented by excitable AMERICAN REDSTARTS this time of year, but other
warblers are seen in migration. Such a bird appeared and caught my eye-
clearly a warbler in size, shape, and behavior. It was foraging in the
shade of some branches and at first was partially hidden by leaves. I
first got a look at its middle third in profile. Yellow belly, blackish
lengthwise stripes just below the wing, darkish upperparts. I kept on it
and it flitted around, offering me more partial glimpses of itself. The
light wasn't great at first, and I almost wrote it off as a Magnolia, but
something wasn't right. The upperparts were greenish, and I was looking
for gray, black, or white on wings or head, but I didn't see any. I looked
for a necklace across the throat, but there was none- stripes were confined
to the sides of the breast. I eventually had accumulated a composite look
of the entire bird and knew it clearly wasn't a Magnolia, but the truth was
so far off my radar that I didn't even consider PRAIRIE WARBLER until the
bird finally revealed its entire self in decent light and the
"football-shaped" mark on the side of its face appeared and I knew I had an
astonishing sighting. This was a state bird for me. I only had one brief
look after realizing what it was, then it buried itself in a leafy cluster
at the back of the tree. It must have sneaked out, as we waited about 5
minutes for more looks but no luck. Unfortunately, the bird was not
vocalizing and conditions were poor and the bird too distant for an iPhone
photo, so no official documentation. But cumulatively a very nice look for
me. This was the type of moment that makes us love birding.

Good Birding,

Stuart Sparkman
NW Des Moines

Subject: [ia-bird] Cascade of warblers, Brookside Park, Ames
Hey IBirders,

I spent a delightful hour at Brookside Park in Ames this morning and
was rewarded with some wonderful encounters with warblers. A CANADA
WARBLER near the tennis courts was a good indicator that more good
sightings were to follow. It was pretty breezy, and perhaps for this
reason some of the warblers were foraging at midstory or lower, notably
CHESTNUT-SIDED, WILSON'S and MAGNOLIA WARBLERS. I spent about 20 minutes
on just a 100 foot section of the dirt trail along the west side of the
creek, which somehow seemed in the lee of the wind. The action was
abundant and the birds seemed to ignore me, passing nearly within arm's
reach at times. I saw at least three MOURNING WARBLERS (none vocalizing),
and a fantastic BAY-BREASTED WARBLER at eye level gave me a thrill. A
PHILADELPHIA VIREO twittering under its breath gave a pleasant close
encounter. Beating the bushes below the tennis courts, I got a nice view
of OVENBIRD, and I was excited and surprised to hear a VEERY sound off
twice not too far off, but in an inaccessible area, so no views available.
In total I saw 12 warbler species and heard an additional three, including
BLUE-WINGED and BLACK-THROATED GREEN. Needless to say, I went off to work
in a very good mood. Hope y'all are having some nice sightings as well.


Good Birding,

Stuart Sparkman

Donna Warner, Linda Quinn and I braved the wind this morning. The Amana Nature Trail is quite wet and muddy, so you need boots if you venture there. Despite the wind we had a good morning and managed really good looks at a male Bay-breasted Warbler and a Canada Warbler. We also heard 3 Wood Thrushes and an Acadian Flycatcher. All in all we had 11 species of Warbler.

Then we went to Amana Lilly Pond. The wind was really blowing hard across the water. There were 17 Black Terns and one Caspian Tern trying to find food above the white-caps.

Subject: [ia-bird] Worm-Eating Warbler Hickory Hill Johnson County
It was a good day for warblers at Hickory Hill today. While looking for
(but failing to see) the Connecticut Warbler, we had prolonged and clear
looks at a Worm-Eating Warbler. First saw it foraging on the ground and
then on a small tree directly above our heads. It was located along the
stream in the South Canyon right before the west side of the collapsed
bridge. We also had good looks at a male Canada Warbler and a couple of
Chestnut-sided Warblers in the same area. We saw a couple of Mourning
Warblers a bit further up the trail when heading back to the entrance.

We also had good looks at a Black and White and a Magnolia. The Redstarts
were plentiful.

On this beautiful but windy day, I saw 10 species of warblers at McFarland
Park north of Ames. Many of them were out of the wind in the stream valley
along the Clark trail. Most birds were foraging close to the ground; even
a pair of Great Crested Flycatchers which are usually high in the tree
tops. The most interesting warblers were FOY for me, Mourning and Canada.
Also heard an Acadian Flycatcher.

Subject: [ia-bird] CT warblers, Linn Co.
IA birders,

I saw TWO Connecticut Warblers today at the south ravine at Squaw Creek in
Marion. The first was a brief glimpse at a female type. I spent 20 minutes
trying to relocate with no luck. Further on down the trail a bird popped up
and I had an eye level look from 20 yards of a male. This was the best look
I’ve ever had! As I raised my camera it bolted and I completely lost where
it went. I was happy to see it but slightly discouraged I would maybe have
to wait another year at a photo opportunity. I decided to vacate the area
in hopes that it would come back out. So I did that and it paid off! After
a 20 minute absence I revisited the general spot and found the male in a
small bush. It stayed up just long enough for me to get a few doc shots
off.

I’d like to thank Paul Morf for asking me how to get there this morning.
His report of the trail being active inspired me to later wake up and give
it a try. Very awesome and memorable moment!

Good birding,
Brandon Caswell

Subject: [ia-bird] Friendly Redstart- Cottonwood, Polk Co
Howdy Folks!

Over the past several days Carol and I have had great success finding warblers. This past Saturday afternoon we found a blackburnian warbler at the group camping area at Jester, and several warblers at the Clive Greenbelt trail off of 100th, just south of Hickman, including Chestnut sided, Wilson’s, many yellow warblers and redstarts.

This afternoon I decided to spend some time at Cottonwood and saw little of interest, with the exception of a juvenile male redstart that lit on my windshield wiper. It was amazing! Of course he flew off before I could get a picture. Regardless, it was really cool.

Bird well y’all!

Following the recent spate of CONW sightings around the state, I can add
Dubuque to the list. I flushed one this morning at Mines of Spain quite
unexpectedly. Saw it for only 4-5 seconds, but it was unmistakable: large,
chunky warbler with complete gray hood and bold, complete white eye ring.
Very long legged with posture reminiscent of LOWA. On the Eagle Scout trail
just as you enter for forest in the descent toward Cattese Hollow.

RJ Thompson found a CT warbler today at Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt
Cardinal Flower trail. The bird was still there around 12:20p when I
arrived. It was flitting around very actively and regularly perching,
often so close you could see its eyering with your naked eye. So much for

Yesterday twenty-one species of warblers were seen, most at Parker's Woods,
including Golden-winged, Blue-winged, Connecticut, Mourning, and Curt
Nelson saw a female Black-throated Blue. I saw that Mary Hodak saw a
Prothonotary Warbler so we did indeed have a fallout of warblers. Duck

This morning, I found a very cooperative CONNECTICUT WARBLER right by the boat ramp parking lot in the canfield area.
It even allowed me to go back to my car for the camera, and I was able to get a couple of decent photos.
While observing this bird, a MOURNING W. came and perched only a couple feet from the C. Warbler.
At home in the yard, I saw a CLAY-COLORED SP. , ALDER F.,12 flyover GOLDEN PLOVERS, and 5 sp. of Warblers.

Subject: [ia-bird] Connecticut Warbler in Linn Co.
 Today I entered the rugged and untamed wilderness of Palisades-Dows and the wet conditions required even more careful stepping than usual. Crossing the flowing
creeks were particularly challenging as some banks were real steep and deer trails like mud-slides.
 
After crossing one creek I spotted at eye-level a male CONNECTICUT WARBLER on downed timber. The bird offered me a good look but was silent. 40 yards later, I assume
the same warbler was again at eye-level but more distant. This time he was singing a short version of his song before dropping down. Usually I find these warblers on
the ground but the vegetation was shorter than normal and it was late morning which might explain its behavior.

Also today at Dows I encountered 2 KENTUCKY WARBLERS, singing on territory, and I had good looks at two MOURNING WARBLERS. A bonus surprise was 4 jumbo morels which
are probably the last of the last.

Just got home after spending about three hours looking for the kite. No positive sightings in that time. That said, it probably showed up as soon as I left!

Hello -

I just saw this bird perched on a fence post at 6:45am. I can see from the road with binoculars although a spotting scope would be better. The lighting is a little better today and the black wing/shoulder patch is better defined. I have included a map with location marker from today. Also phone photo from yesterday.

This morning, I hiked down past the locked gate at Oak Grove and checked
the half exposed Oak Grove beach. There was one fully decked out Ruddy
Turnstone along with several Caspian Terns, Forster’s Tern, and Franklin’s
Gulls.

Along the road heading down were a nice group of low foraging Warblers
including Blackpoll, Mourning, and Magnolia.

At the Cherry Glen picnic area, I had probably as good of a look at a
Bay-breasted Warbler as I’ve ever seen. Also there was a Wilson’s Warbler.

How any of you are still seeing Red-breasted Nuthatches. They have always been just an occasional winter bird, but not every winter. This year have been here most of the winter and are still here. I observed one working the bark of old willows seeking insects. We have two peanut feeders which are their favorites. They being visited by orioles as well.

Connecticut Warbler- Clear Creek Trail (Johnson County) <http://groups.google.com/group/ia-bird/t/cdb84aa29791447d?utm_source=digest&utm_medium=email>
Fawn Bowden <fawnda10...><mailto:<fawnda10...>>: May 18 03:23PM -0700

I had about an hour to kill today (about 2PM) while my daughter was in
dance, so went over to Clear Creek Trail on the west side of Camp Cardinal
Rd. and had a couple good views of a nice looking male Connecticut Warbler
off of the dirt bike path that's near IHOP. I park either behind IHOP or
in the Hawkeye parking and then walk over to the trail. I walk on the
cement trail until I see the dirt bike path on the west side and go in
there. The warbler was on the north side of the trail (closer to IHOP),
never higher than about 5' off the ground, near a small pond. There were a
few more common warblers and many resident summer birds, but I had limited
time to explore. The trail is muddy and/or submerged in many
spots........I like the dirt bike trail better, less traffic + more birds.

Chestnut-sided, Bay-breasted, Magnolia, Blackpoll, Tennessee, Wilson's,
Yellow, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Northern Waterthrush. Also
had Eastern Peewee. There are still some peeps lingering on the few

Travis Saveraid <tsaveraid...><mailto:<tsaveraid...>>: May 18 12:37PM -0700

Hello -
First time posting so hope I do this correctly. While birding our family farm in southern Madison county I found a perched raptor on the edge of a pasture/hayfield - at approximately 1:45pm today. I immediately thought "kite". Sizewise, similar to Cooper's hawk. I got as close as I could, but only had my phone with me so photos slightly blurred. When perched the plumage markings were most consistent with a white-tailed kite. When it flew, there were definite solid black shoulder markings on top and looks identical to the Sibley guide. I know they are not supposed to be here, but it is what I saw. The bird landed in top of an bur oak still on the property. I did not have cell reception at that location so walked back to the house to post.
The property is directly north of Clanton Creek Recreation area, specifically at the the corner of Millstream Ave and 305th St.
I am not sure how to submit a photo. Thanks

"EA" <eaubrey...><mailto:<eaubrey...>>: May 18 02:14PM -0500

Birders,



This morning Mark Madsen, Jerry Denning and I took up the Challenge by The
Nature Conservancy in Iowa to count as many bird species as we could find on
their wonderful property in Muscatine County. We arrived at the gate into
the property at about 7:50 and were soon greeted by Hannah Howard, Community
Coordinator for TNC, and she gave us information about where we might go in
the area and what we might see or hear. As far as we knew, no other birders
showed up for the challenge, so it was just the birds challenging us to find
them.



It was a rich morning, but when a nasty line of severe thunderstorms began
to blow in less than a half hour after we started, we headed back to the car
to wait it out. After about 20 minutes Hannah came and told us that the
storms didn't seem likely to ease up much, and she was calling the Challenge
off for the day. We were only about a mile down the road on the way home
when the rain stopped and it looked like there was more of a break than we
had thought, so we turned around and went back. We're glad we did. On our
second foray we had the treat of the day, a fully visible, singing, garish
male Prothonotary Warbler. We also chalked up a Northern Waterthrush,
American Pelican, Sandhill Crane (heard), Warbling Vireo, and Mourning
Warbler (heard) before the second round of thunderstorms moved in. Full
species list is below.



The Preserve, along the Cedar River, is well worth the trip. It is part of
300,000 acres of richly diverse floodplain oak savanna that, as the TNC web
site claims, "is home to the greatest biodiversity in the state." Hannah
emphasized that the TNC welcomes visitors to the Preserve at any time.
There is a live cattle wire along the right side of the road through the
savannah which can be stepped on to allow passing to the other side (the
Prothonotary was in a swampy area on the right just inside the gate).

"Doug & Nina Harr" <dnharr...><mailto:<dnharr...>>: May 18 01:09PM -0500

I hiked Lost Lake Trail at Ledges State Park as soon as this morning's rain
stopped, hoping for some new warblers but was mostly skunked by very low
numbers. Found only a Yellow Warbler, a couple of Common Yellowthroats,
several American Redstarts, and 2 male Chestnut-sided Warblers (both
singing loudly). A couple of other warblers disappeared into heavy cover
before ID was possible. But the woods were stuffed full of orioles,
grosbeaks, Least Flycatchers, 3 species of vireos and many other birds.
Best of morning was my FOY *Yellow-billed Cuckoo,* frequently singing and
seen flying about 3 times near the high ridge portion of the trail.

Hey I-Birders,

Karen and Harney and I birded Cherry Glen and Oak Grove sites on the
east side of Saylorville Lake (Polk Co.) this morning. Some days the birds
make it easy, but today was not like that. We had to work to get some
warblers, but ended up with a respectable list. A SCARLET TANAGER was the
first bird we heard and subsequently saw as we left the car. The best
sightings of the morning were single BLACKBURNIAN and CAPE MAY WARBLERS,
both FOY birds we had mentioned hoping to see today. A pair of
RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS cruised overhead and were seen several times.
Flycatchers were active, with a well-heard ALDER FLYCATCHER, a few LEASTS,
and numerous conspicuous and vociferous GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHERS. I was
happy to see several ORCHARD ORIOLES as well, another FOY for me. A
DICKCISSEL sang for us as we departed the Oak Grove area. Hope you are
enjoying quality time with our visiting migrants.

Cheers,

On the bike trail, before the railroad tracks, there is a straight downhill
stretch, before the path turns and crosses the RR tracks. The Connecticut
Warbler was about 1/2 or 2/3 the way down the path on the left. I was on
the dirt trail above the paved trail, playing some warbler audio to try to
figure out what warblers were in the canopy, when it popped up 20 ft away,
between me and the paved path, and sung. I didn't recognize the song, but
saw the bold eyering when I got bins on it, and got excited (!).

It was funny to watch it walk along the forest floor. It was difficult to
flush. I followed it for awhile, trying to get a picture, and it just
walked along ahead of me, and wouldn't fly unless I was almost on top it.
I'll put some photos and a recording on eBird:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56449433.

Exciting to get an unexpected lifer!

The Hooded Warbler was nowhere to be seen. FOY Philadelphia Vireo. Later
at Jester Park Ray Cummins pointed me to the Summer Tanagers (FOY). Also
had FOY Scarlet Tanager and a singing FOY Alder Flycatcher.

Good evening,

I had a Connecticut Warbler singing in my yard between Pella and Knoxville for a couple hours this morning. I got a recording of it - does anyone still have the email from the person asking for recordings of this species? Thanks, Russ.

I just saw this bird perched on a fence post at 6:45am. I can see from the road with binoculars although a spotting scope would be better. The lighting is a little better today and the black wing/shoulder patch is better defined. I have included a map with location marker from today. Also phone photo from yesterday.

Subject: [ia-bird] Good Morning for Mourning
Hey I-Birders,

Karen and Harney and I walked a loop including the Neal Smith Trail and
Cottonwood RA along the Des Moines River below Saylorville Dam (Polk Co.)
this morning. It was cool, sometimes chilly, drippy, sometimes breezy, and
generally wet, but our physical discomfort was rewarded with some
noteworthy sightings. We had three good looks at MOURNING WARBLERS,
including a female, which I couldn't recall having seen before.
CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLERS were still around, and could be occasionally heard
over the din of a thousand AMERICAN REDSTARTS jockeying for territories.
We had two nice looks at BLACKBURNIAN WARBLERS and our first-of-the-year
PHILADELPHIA VIREO. We noted a RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH sounding off in the
forest, which would seem curious perhaps any other year.

Good Birding,

Stuart Sparkman

Whilst standing at my back door earlier this morning, I observed 5 species of vireos (Blue-headed, Red-eyed, Philadelphia, Warbling and Yellow-throated) cavorting in the trees. Oddly, they outnumbered the warblers during this episode.

No fossil fuels were consumed during the making of this observation.

This morning at 7:00 I found a singing Prairie Warbler along the Clear
Creek bike trail right where it intersects with the Mormon Handcart trail.
From either Melrose Ave or Mormon Trek Rd, turn onto Hawkeye Park Road and
go the far northeast end of the University Parking lot. You can park there
and walk north along the Clear Creek bike trail. The Prairie Warbler was
moving in the trees along both sides of the trail near the intersection
with the Mormon Handcart Park trail.

Subject: [ia-bird] Iowa Lakeside Laboratory birds
I have been coming to Iowa Lakeside Lab since 1986, but there has never
been this intensity of migrants. When I first got here on 12 May, there
were 3 Caspian Terns in Little Miller's Bay. They left, but the warblers
and other migrants descended. In the last week, we have seen or banded:
Harris' Sparrow, Wilson Warbler, lots of Tennessee and Chestnut-sided
warblers, Prothonotary Warblers, Bay-breasted Warbler, Blackburnian
Warbler, Least Flycatchers, Willow Flycatchers, and they are still coming.
My class also saw two American Bitterns confront a mink, and we have now
heard them in several wetlands. They are predictable at Three Corner Pond,
a little over one mile east of the Freda Hafner Kettlehole Preserve.

Last night, Matt Fairchild, Steve Main, and I (Iowa Lakeside Laboratory)
investigated a sighting of Sandhill Cranes. We saw two adults at a DNR
property near 130 Ave and 170 Street. One adult mainly stayed near the edge
of a wetland, and the other walked up and down the esker and back to the
more stationary bird. From a distance, we could not discern a nest, and I
may not be in the area at a time when young would hatch. It would be nice
if someone followed up later in the year.

Lee and I birded a couple areas around Spencer this morning. At Stolley park we did not relocate the Hooded Warbler that was seen there earlier this week. The second area was the Thunder Bridge Road area which follows the Little Sioux River. There was an incredible warbler fallout with the storm that moved through during the night and both areas held large numbers of birds, not only species but numbers. We ended the morning with 22 species of warblers with Golden-winged being the only miss for expected warblers. After checking a few local sheet water areas we ended the morning with 104 species.
Coming home from such an amazing experience I didn’t think my birding day could get any better but when I arrived home Karla came to tell me that she had just spotted a Western Tanager in our front yard. She said it was very skittish and she was right, it came around periodically throughout the afternoon but it didn’t sit for long.

How any of you are still seeing Red-breasted Nuthatches. They have always been just an occasional winter bird, but not every winter. This year have been here most of the winter and are still here. I observed one working the bark of old willows seeking insects. We have two peanut feeders which are their favorites. They being visited by orioles as well.

I had about an hour to kill today (about 2PM) while my daughter was in
dance, so went over to Clear Creek Trail on the west side of Camp Cardinal
Rd. and had a couple good views of a nice looking male Connecticut Warbler
off of the dirt bike path that's near IHOP. I park either behind IHOP or
in the Hawkeye parking and then walk over to the trail. I walk on the
cement trail until I see the dirt bike path on the west side and go in
there. The warbler was on the north side of the trail (closer to IHOP),
never higher than about 5' off the ground, near a small pond. There were a
few more common warblers and many resident summer birds, but I had limited
time to explore. The trail is muddy and/or submerged in many
spots........I like the dirt bike trail better, less traffic + more birds.

I had a male yellow-breasted chat this afternoon at Chichaqua Bottoms
Greenbelt Trail, just across the bridge near the "Jack Pine Trail" sign. I
also saw a Mourning Warbler between the parking area and the bridge for
good measure.

Subject: [ia-bird] White-tailed kite sighting Madison County
Hello -
First time posting so hope I do this correctly. While birding our family farm in southern Madison county I found a perched raptor on the edge of a pasture/hayfield - at approximately 1:45pm today. I immediately thought "kite". Sizewise, similar to Cooper's hawk. I got as close as I could, but only had my phone with me so photos slightly blurred. When perched the plumage markings were most consistent with a white-tailed kite. When it flew, there were definite solid black shoulder markings on top and looks identical to the Sibley guide. I know they are not supposed to be here, but it is what I saw. The bird landed in top of an bur oak still on the property. I did not have cell reception at that location so walked back to the house to post.
The property is directly north of Clanton Creek Recreation area, specifically at the the corner of Millstream Ave and 305th St.
I am not sure how to submit a photo. Thanks

Subject: [ia-bird] Land of the Swamp White Oak Preserve - Muscatine County
Birders,



This morning Mark Madsen, Jerry Denning and I took up the Challenge by The
Nature Conservancy in Iowa to count as many bird species as we could find on
their wonderful property in Muscatine County. We arrived at the gate into
the property at about 7:50 and were soon greeted by Hannah Howard, Community
Coordinator for TNC, and she gave us information about where we might go in
the area and what we might see or hear. As far as we knew, no other birders
showed up for the challenge, so it was just the birds challenging us to find
them.



It was a rich morning, but when a nasty line of severe thunderstorms began
to blow in less than a half hour after we started, we headed back to the car
to wait it out. After about 20 minutes Hannah came and told us that the
storms didn't seem likely to ease up much, and she was calling the Challenge
off for the day. We were only about a mile down the road on the way home
when the rain stopped and it looked like there was more of a break than we
had thought, so we turned around and went back. We're glad we did. On our
second foray we had the treat of the day, a fully visible, singing, garish
male Prothonotary Warbler. We also chalked up a Northern Waterthrush,
American Pelican, Sandhill Crane (heard), Warbling Vireo, and Mourning
Warbler (heard) before the second round of thunderstorms moved in. Full
species list is below.



The Preserve, along the Cedar River, is well worth the trip. It is part of
300,000 acres of richly diverse floodplain oak savanna that, as the TNC web
site claims, "is home to the greatest biodiversity in the state." Hannah
emphasized that the TNC welcomes visitors to the Preserve at any time.
There is a live cattle wire along the right side of the road through the
savannah which can be stepped on to allow passing to the other side (the
Prothonotary was in a swampy area on the right just inside the gate).

Well, today he used his emergency button early morning and the ambulance took him to the hospital. He needed special surgery with top notch surgeons and was airlifted to Gainesville, FL. He made it there, however surgery was long and he did not make it through surgery. The surgeons did their best. My Dad, Charlie had an aorta stent put in around 12 years ago, however, just above the stent he was bleeding. I talked with him for 2 hours (normal length) Friday night and he was doing fine. He was 91.5 years old. He is the one that got my family into birding and nature all at early ages. I hope you had someone in your family that did the same. I will be going to Florida in a few days to meet up with my brother and sister-in-law.

Subject: [ia-bird] Ledges SP cuckoo report
I hiked Lost Lake Trail at Ledges State Park as soon as this morning's rain
stopped, hoping for some new warblers but was mostly skunked by very low
numbers. Found only a Yellow Warbler, a couple of Common Yellowthroats,
several American Redstarts, and 2 male Chestnut-sided Warblers (both
singing loudly). A couple of other warblers disappeared into heavy cover
before ID was possible. But the woods were stuffed full of orioles,
grosbeaks, Least Flycatchers, 3 species of vireos and many other birds.
Best of morning was my FOY *Yellow-billed Cuckoo,* frequently singing and
seen flying about 3 times near the high ridge portion of the trail.

Had a pretty good spread of warblers at Gotch Park this morning.
Chestnut-sided, Bay-breasted, Magnolia, Blackpoll, Tennessee, Wilson's,
Yellow, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Northern Waterthrush. Also
had Eastern Peewee. There are still some peeps lingering on the few
flooded fields that are around. Lots of Empids were also flying, presuming
that they are still largely Leasts.

Subject: [ia-bird] Saylorville Lake: Cape May, Blackburnian
Hey I-Birders,

Karen and Harney and I birded Cherry Glen and Oak Grove sites on the
east side of Saylorville Lake (Polk Co.) this morning. Some days the birds
make it easy, but today was not like that. We had to work to get some
warblers, but ended up with a respectable list. A SCARLET TANAGER was the
first bird we heard and subsequently saw as we left the car. The best
sightings of the morning were single BLACKBURNIAN and CAPE MAY WARBLERS,
both FOY birds we had mentioned hoping to see today. A pair of
RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS cruised overhead and were seen several times.
Flycatchers were active, with a well-heard ALDER FLYCATCHER, a few LEASTS,
and numerous conspicuous and vociferous GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHERS. I was
happy to see several ORCHARD ORIOLES as well, another FOY for me. A
DICKCISSEL sang for us as we departed the Oak Grove area. Hope you are
enjoying quality time with our visiting migrants.

Cheers,
Stuart Sparkman

Subject: [ia-bird] Connecticut Warbler - Ashwork Park, Polk Co
On the bike trail, before the railroad tracks, there is a straight downhill
stretch, before the path turns and crosses the RR tracks. The Connecticut
Warbler was about 1/2 or 2/3 the way down the path on the left. I was on
the dirt trail above the paved trail, playing some warbler audio to try to
figure out what warblers were in the canopy, when it popped up 20 ft away,
between me and the paved path, and sung. I didn't recognize the song, but
saw the bold eyering when I got bins on it, and got excited (!).

It was funny to watch it walk along the forest floor. It was difficult to
flush. I followed it for awhile, trying to get a picture, and it just
walked along ahead of me, and wouldn't fly unless I was almost on top it.
I'll put some photos and a recording on eBird:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56449433.

Exciting to get an unexpected lifer!

The Hooded Warbler was nowhere to be seen. FOY Philadelphia Vireo. Later
at Jester Park Ray Cummins pointed me to the Summer Tanagers (FOY). Also
had FOY Scarlet Tanager and a singing FOY Alder Flycatcher.

Shimek SF on the 14th. Directions to the spots is difficult and I even had
trouble finding the opening I visited last spring. Luckily, ticks were
amazingly few today, maybe
because of the heavy dew and recent wetness. From the 130th Ave. dead end I
walked straight south, crossing the creek then taking the east trail uphill
until I came to the large round open area. The first Prairie Warbler was on
the east edge of this opening and moved around its perimeter, singing.

The other two warblers were straight south of this opening in a long
rectangular unit section which is centered by a long grassy area with many
cedars
bordered by trees. One of The warblers was not far into this area (almost
same spot as last spring's Prairie Warbler) and the other all the way to
the south end and I assume near the south most
boundary. The key to finding this field is following tire ruts in the grass
until you come to the fence
corner which has the huge pasture on the other side. If you miss this
corner you could be following a trail into the west side of the unit.
Actually,
I think this fence corner is almost inline with the uphill trail entrance
if one continued south instead of exploring the large open area as I did.
The best thing to do is check a map of this unit first.







*CENTRAL:*



GREENE COUNTY:

A RUDDY TURNSTONE was seen at Dunbar Slough on the 10th. One was still
present on the far north end of shorebird habitat on 270th St on the 14th.



POLK COUNTY:

A possible FISH CROW was seen below the dam at Saylorville on the 11th.



A HOODED WARBLER was seen at Ashworth Park on the 13th. It was observed
again on the 16th.



A WESTERN KINGBIRD was seen on the east side of the Saylorville spillway on
the 14th.



A MISSISSIPPI KITE was seen along 73rd St in Widsor Heights on the 17th.



STORY COUNTY:

A WORM-EATING WARBLER was seen at Emma McCarthy Lee Park on the 14th.
Directions: go down the hill and park in the first dirt/gravel parking area
at the bottom. Take the trail to the west past the small grove of pine
trees until the trail splits. That's the general area I saw it in, along
the smaller creek that leads into the bigger creek.



Coordinates: 42.03038, -93.66716





*NORTHWEST:*



SIOUX COUNTY:

A BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER was seen in a yard on the 15th.

Hey I-Birders,

While leading a short bird walk for a biology class at Ames High
Prairie this morning (Story Co,), I stumbled across a couple of MOURNING
WARBLERS. Got a great look at one of them as it foraged in a low bush.
They were about the only migrants I spotted this morning, I think. Plenty
of birds moved on last night, I suspect.

Good Birding,

Subject: [ia-bird] Bay-breasted and more, Ames
Hey I-birders,

I spent a delightful hour at Brookside Park in Ames this morning
(Wednesday) and was rewarded with 15 species of warblers. The stars of the
show were two stunning BAY-BREASTED WARBLERS that leisurely foraged rather
low in a tree, allowing crippling views in full sun. I had to walk away
from them after 10 minutes to get on the other things I was hearing.
CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLERS had arrived the night before, and several gave
excellent views. Honorable mentions go to GOLDEN-WINGED, BLUE-WINGED,
MAGNOLIA, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLERS, as well as the lone CANADA
WARBLER that provided nice views as well. I thought I would leave for work
with a mere 13 warblers, but a vocal YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER led me to a
sycamore on the way out, and provided me with a BLACKPOLL WARBLER there as
a bonus. Hope you all had similar luck on this fine spring morning.

Subject: [ia-bird] Black-billed Cuckoo, 15 warblers and Red-breasted Nuthatches- Jones County
Bill Scheible and I visited Central Park and Muskrat Slough in Jones County this morning.

We had never been to Central Park before and we both thought it was a little hidden jewel. There were two stands of well maintained Purple Martin gourds that had nesting martins. With lots of Pine trees we found 5 Red-breasted Nuthatches. The naturalist told us that they normally have a few Red-breasted Nuthatches all Summer and this leads us to believe they might nest in this park. We had 4 Common Nighthawks circling overhead while we were craning our necks looking for warblers. Even with this distraction we managed to see 15 species of warblers, including a male Blackpoll and a Canada Warbler.

We birded the road along the north side of Muskrat Slough. This was quite a busy place even though it was closer to noon. We found a resting Common Nighthawk, another Canada Warbler, a lone Green-winged Teal, heard a Sandhill Crane, and best of all Bill spotted a Cuckoo flying across the road. He perched up briefly, just long enough for me to see a completely black bill and no rufous on its wings before it ducked back into the brush.

Polk County Conservation Board is planning a grand reopening at Easter Lake
on Sunday, June 23rd. They have asked if Iowa Audubon or *any* birders
might be willing to talk about bird watching, the type of birds that may be
found using the lake area, and having spotting scopes available for the
public to use. The event is from 1-5 PM and will take place on the north
shoreline. Easter Lake is in the southeast part of Des Moines.


If you might be willing to help out with the request above (sent to me a
couple of times), please contact Patti Petersen Keys directly at the
following email: *<Patrice.Petersen-Keys...>
<Patrice.Petersen-Keys...>*.


I will be on a Pacific Northwest bird photography trip for much of June and
am not sure I'll be back by the 23rd. If I am, I will try to help out with
this event, but Patti would really like to have some better assurance of
birding volunteers.

Had a couple nice birds on the campus of Central College in Pella this morning. The most exciting was a singing Gray-cheeked Thrush - I had not heard them sing before, and I have only confidently identified them a couple of times in the past. The thrush stuck to some mature conifers present on campus, and sat side-by-side with a Swainson's Thrush for nearly a minute. Also had beautiful looks at one of my favorite warblers, Chestnut-sided, and heard my first Eastern Wood Pewee of the year. We have a starling on campus who is a good imitator of pewees, so it was nice to hear the real thing. Russ, Pella / Knoxville.

Hermit and Wood Thrushes singing. It certainly is a beautiful day in the
neighborhood.

Finally we are getting some warblers up this way. Between yesterday and
today there were twenty species of warblers at Parker's Woods. Only one or
two of each but a good variety which included Cape May, Blackburnian,
Canada, Black poll, Golden-winged, Mourning (at my house), etc, etc. We
hadn't had much for Red-eyed Vireos and suddenly they are everywhere.

Subject: [ia-bird] Colo Bog (Story Co.) shorebirds
Bruce Erhresman and I were returning from a meeting in Tama County this
afternoon, and we stopped at Colo Bog. We were actually a bit surprised to
find a mixed species flock of at least 200 shorebirds at the edge of a
small pond on the south side of Co. Hwy E41. There also were about 5 *Black
Terns* circling over the marsh.

Shorebirds seen were:
*Lesser Yellowlegs*
*Dunlins*
*Least Sandpipers*
*Semi-palmated Sandpipers*
*Pectoral Sandpipers*
*White-rumped Sandpipers*
*Spotted Sandpipers*
*Sanderings*
Because the flock was moving around rapidly, we might have missed one or
two more species.

Earlier in the day, while birding in rain at Otter Creek Lake County Park,
NE of Tama, we found a mixed warbler flock of 6 species, all seen in about
30 minutes before our noon meeting began.

This p.m. I scoped a female HUDSONIAN GODWIT from Amana Road, just west of the Blain Cemetery Rd. intersection. At first it looked like a Marbled Godwit
from a distance and was rather plump, too. It payed off to give that pale godwit a second and prolonged scoping.

Shorebird habitat at the main pool is minimal now and into the foreseeable future but Round Pond had many peeps today and a few other shorebirds.

Around 3:40 PM today at Emma McCarthy Lee Park in Ames I found a
Worm-eating Warbler. I viewed it for a minute or two and was able to get
some pictures. I have yet to relocate it, but I doubt it is far.

If you come to look for it, go down the hill and park in the first
dirt/gravel parking area at the bottom. Take the trail to the west past the
small grove of pine trees until the trail splits. That's the general area I
saw it in, along the smaller creek that leads into the bigger creek.

Subject: [ia-bird] Male, Bay-breasted Warbler
Another cold, overcast day, but not quite so windy. What is it with this year? Went to fill the feeders at Lake Hendrick’s Park, Riceville in Howard Co. Thought I might as well check out the woods for warblers. Had 13 species again with a Blackburnian , Canada, Blue-winged, Chestnut-sided, and Northern Parula giving really good looks.

Only the 2nd time in 50 years for the male, Bay-breasted. The other time it was in our farm grove. Really couldn’t believe I was seeing it and so well.

Back of the Butterfy Garden there was a Veery and along the road to the dock a Grey-cheeked Thrush. Scads of Yellow-rumped and several Palm warblers still. A few White-throated Sparrows and a White-crowned showed up.

Had 5 male Rose Breasted Grosbeaks at one time on or near the feeders.

It was perfection. This is just going to ruin it for future birding.

Hope you are having great looks,

I went out once the showers let up, and while there were a few small flocks of migrants around, diversity was pretty limited. Best birds seen at Ashworth Park in Des Moines this morning included a Golden-winged Warbler and 2 sharp looking Bay-breasted Warblers. I was unable to relocate the Hooded Warbler from yesterday, but it was acting territorial yesterday and could still be around.

Tennessee and Blackpoll Warblers are still remarkably absent around here....at least where Ive been birding.

I made a quick run to Lew Clarkson park in Johnston this morning, arriving
just as the rain stopped and staying about 20 minutes. It was a Warbler
Palooza. Tiny birds were crossing the power line clearing at a rate of at
least 12 per minute.

Unfortunately, they weren't landing where I could see them (deeper in,
rather than just on the edge), and the only birds I could identify were the
ones in the bushes: Common Yellowthroat, Yellow, and my FOY Wilson's. There
were also some larger song birds and flycatchers.

Subject: [ia-bird] Prairie Warblers at Croton Unit in Lee Co.
 This morning I did a search of the southeast section of the Croton Unit at the end of 130th Ave. for PRAIRIE WARBLERS and found at least three.
They were far enough apart (and in one case, had a different song) that I could rule out possible repeats. In the south most habitat I had singing
on opposite sides but not simultaneously so I wasn't sure how many. If there were two, each had its own forest edge which seems to be what they
favor but if they require large territories then two wouldn't seem as likely.

 Directions to the spots is difficult and I even had trouble finding the opening I visited last spring. Luckily, ticks were amazingly few today, maybe
because of the heavy dew and recent wetness. From the 130th Ave. dead end I walked straight south, crossing the creek then taking the east trail uphill
until I came to the large round open area. The first Prairie Warbler was on the east edge of this opening and moved around its perimeter, singing.

 The other two warblers were straight south of this opening in a long rectangular unit section which is centered by a long grassy area with many cedars
bordered by trees. One of The warblers was not far into this area (almost same spot as last spring's Prairie Warbler) and the other all the way to the                       south end and I assume near the south most boundary. The key to finding this field is following tire ruts in the grass until you come to the fence
corner which has the huge pasture on the other side. If you miss this corner you could be following a trail into the west side of the unit. Actually,
I think this fence corner is almost inline with the uphill trail entrance if one continued south instead of exploring the large open area as I did.
The best thing to do is check a map of this unit first.

 Other birds of note were 12 WHITE-EYED VIREO and maybe 5 YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS (not many for this unit!). A big thrill for me was my first Prairie
Ringneck Snake.

                                                                                                                                     Jim Forde
                                                                                                                                     Cedar Rapids

Went looking for sandhills again today, only found two at Cardinal Marsh instead of the 15+ I usually see there, but the two I did find have a nest. Also saw numerous bobolinks(another first of year for me) and a pileated woodpecker gave me a great flyby. Ducks were very sparse this time(a few teals and mallards), one pair of trumpeters(also nesting) and the usual many Canada geese. Photo attached of the crane nest, heavy crop.
Also found what appears to be a badger den across the pond from the cranes. Happily they were either absent or sleeping. I'd rather not stumble into a badger.

Hey I-Birders,

Karen, Harney, and I got our miles in today as we birded Cottonwood Rec
Area below Saylorville Dam this morning and in the late afternoon along the
Des Moines River near our home. We've been finding NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH to
be almost abundant this weekend, and saw several today. At Cottonwood it
was chilly and drippy, but a BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER showed nicely,
and several WILSON'S and PALM WARBLERS put in an appearance, and a
GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER was heard. A PROTHONOTARY WARBLER was at the flooded
slough along the Neal Smith Trail (and we had close encounters with at
least three yesterday at Bob Shetler RA below the dam, as reported by other
birders). Along the river this afternoon we had a WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW,
more WILSON'S WARBLERS, as well as several BLACK AND WHITE and a MAGNOLIA
WARBLER, but the star of the walk was a cooperative CANADA WARBLER that we
observed for nearly 10 minutes at a rather close distance. It was a
glorious encounter. So, a twenty-two warbler tally is pretty good for a
cold, wet, and sometimes windy weekend. Now where are the Blackburnian and
Chestnut-sideds that have eluded us thus far? Let's hope for more birds
and better weather this week.

Good Birding,

Subject: [ia-bird] Ruddy Turnstones - Legacy Wildlife Area, Hardin Co.
This afternoon at ~4 pm there were 2 Ruddy Turnstones at Legacy Wildilfe
Area. From the east side (where the observation platform is) they were at
the tip of the north spit that extends into the middle of wetland and
almost meets the spit coming north from the south.

Yesterday I walked the south side of the wetland and found the two
previously reported American Avocets, along with 2 Stilt Sandpipers, 3
Dunlin, and other shorbs.

If you haven't been to the wetland before, there aren't really any
established trails (yet?) so you have to wade through a lot of grass to get
to the observation platform. It's also a very large wetland, it looks like
it would be 3+ miles to walk around the entire thing. But not all parts of
the wetland are visible unless you walk around it. I walked along the
south side yesterday, and north side today.

Subject: [ia-bird] Great morning- 5 FOY species
Coming to work this morning I spotted a great egret at the Ackerson Easterly wildlife area east of Colwell. Getting closer to Mason City there was one red-headed woodpecker at the pasture just west of the big marsh on 280th St. Sadly there was also a mallard on the pond with a badly broken wing.

At the pond on the intersection of 290th and Poplar there was a yellow warbler and the first scarlet tanager I've ever seen. Common but I always seem to miss them.
Finally, there were two sandpipers(least, I think) on the road along the west edge of Curries parking lot.

Subject: RE: [ia-bird] Possible fish crow at Saylorville
Here’s some more information on the possible (actually, probable) FISH CROW from this morning –



While leading the monthly Des Moines Audubon field trip below Saylorville Dam this morning, I heard the distinctive two-note “AH-AH” call of a Fish Crow. It was calling frequently and we soon located it as it moved around.. It finally settled down at the top of a snag in a swampy area. There it started its other nasal “begging crow” call, though not as frequently. Unfortunately, out of sixteen people all we had were cell phones for photos. We had great looks through optics, but couldn’t get a good picture. Likewise, attempts at capturing audio weren’t very successful. All agreed the bird was smaller than a typical crow, but I know that’s subjective without a direct comparison between the two. Ray Cummins and others familiar with the species agreed that the calls matched a Fish Crow. The bird was still perched when we left. While there’s no definitive proof, it’s probably worth a look and listen if you’re below the dam sometime.

Subject: [ia-bird] Black-throated Blue Warbler
Spent 3 hrs. this cold, windy, overcast morning at the New Haven Potholes north of Hwy 9 east of Osage in the Mitchell Co.Conservation’s Park.

Hardly a warbler-type day, but I wanted to see the Bluebells. You can stand in one spot along the south trail to the Little Cedar River and turn 360 degrees and see bluebells solid for as far as you can see. The pink ones are outstanding and I did find one pure white one.

Took the north trail toward the large pothole and just beyond the observation deck I ran into the BTBW. Great looks. Every time he flew, he flashed his rectangular white “hanky” sticking out of his blue-black pocket on his wings. On the way back he was cavorting around the observation deck and must have gotten 6 or 7 more good looks.

Now if you’ve talked birding with me, one of my favorite expressions is - “ Only once in 50 years” ! Well this was the second time. About 25 years ago I got it in the fall migration at Lake Hendricks, Howard Co. Does that mean I must get a new expression?

There were numerous Yellow-rumped Warblers and Palm Warblers. Dozens of White-throated Sparrows and Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Kind of unusual to have them still here when the other warblers are coming through. Anyway I got 13 species, including Northern Parula, Cape May, and Blackpoll. Surprisingly no Tennessee or Nashville.

Good birding,

Subject: [ia-bird] Warblers round Saylorville - Polk Co.
Yesterday afternoon Carol and I checked out the area near the outlet of Saylorville in the Bob Shetler area. In a mucky, smelly area where the floodwater was receding, the ground and trees were alive with warblers, albeit mostly yellow rumped (MANY) and palm warblers (a dozen or more). There were also a couple yellow warblers, a prothonotary and several northern waterthrushes. I think we also had a hooded warbler, but we only got a very brief look. Earlier in the day in the same area, I also found a black and white warbler.

We then went to the Cottonwood area (near the pond) where we found more palm, yellow rumped, yellow and prothonotary warblers.

Bird well,

Pip

Forget it, I think I've been scrutinizing these photos to long, because I
can almost see it either way now...So The initial photo suggests it is
rounded like a Long-billed, but the second photo seems to suggest a flatter
profile like that of a short-billed. I'm not sure if I'm actually seeing a
minor kink in the bill (as would show up in a short-billed) or if I've just
been looking at these photos too long.....in general....)

Correction, short-billed dowitcher (we vacillated on this for a bit, but

Paul Skrade and I conducted a Big Day today in Humboldt County. We ended
up with 101 species during our survey period (I would later find four more
after we had split our separate ways). Most interesting things included
what we think were two Peregrine Falcons (one near Florida Ave, and one at
Ottosen Potholes [the one at the potholes had caught a prey item]).
Migrants in north central Iowa are still running their first phase waves.
The warblers we had were largely Yellow-rumped, Palms, Nashville,
Orange-crowned; though we did end up pulling both waterthrush species from
Gotch Park (as well as some later migrants like American Redstart, Wilson's
and Black-and-white Warblers). We got a Yellow Warbler at Willow Access,
and a profusion of thrushes (Gray-cheeked, Swainson's and Hermit).
Shorebirds were lackluster, with a Long-billed Dowitcher being the best of
the group. We were also able to snag a Northern Harrier late in the day as
well. We had more waterfowl than the last couple of week's would've
suggested including some Ruddy Ducks at the potholes, along with a group of
Lesser Scaup and some Gadwalls. Rails were active at the potholes, and we
did see an American Bittern, and a Great Egret there. We had a good swath

they don't count in the Big Day figuring). We also dipped on Great Blue
Heron which seems a ridiculous miss considering we found what would be
considered 'more difficult' heron species. We didn't find any pelicans,
and we didn't find any Indigo Buntings...We also didn't find any
Dickcissels or Eastern Towhees...

Subject: [ia-bird] Shorebirds at Cone Marsh- Louisa County
There are some nice shorebirds at Cone Marsh the last couple
days.......present this morning, a Hudsonian Godwit, Dunlin, Short and
Long-billed Dowitchers and many others. They're in that corner between
220th and V Ave, probably best scoped from V Ave, but if they're in the
right spot you can see them from 220th, but lots of vegetation in the way.
The pair of Sandhill Cranes that were nesting in that area were leading
around a tiny, single colt this morning! Quite adorable :)

Subject: [ia-bird] Golden Eagle - Story County
At around 5:05 PM I had a GOLDEN EAGLE perched 50 from the entrance road at
West Peterson Park in Story County, just north of Ames. Classic golden head
and nape and white at the base of the tail, with no mottling. It sat in the
tree for a good 5 minutes before taking of and flying just above tree level
to the north. It may possibly have perched again, but I have yet to
relocate it.

Some clarification as to where the Ibis was.......I guess it would be NORTH

could have been spotted despite my poor directions. Sorry for any

Subject: [ia-bird] Northern Parula
Yesterday, in the backyard along with heavy traffic of White-throated
Sparrows, I was pleased to spot White-crowned and Harris’s, and a Lincoln’s
Sparrows.  Saw a Blue-headed Vireo, 8 orioles in one spot on the other side
of the creek, 8 species of warblers with Yellow-throated, Wilson’s, Magnolia
the best and the actual orange crown of an Orange-crowned Warbler. 

This morning, in between showers, I saw a Northern Parula at eye-level (our
house is a little higher than the floor of the Clive Greenbelt behind us.)
It has been 10 years since I have seen a Northern Parula here at home.
After yesterday's Yellow-throated Warbler and today's Northern Parula, what
will tomorrow bring?

The warblers and sparrows are feeding mostly in elms and hackberries. Our
backyard borders the Clive Geenbelt along Walnut Creek.

the mud in front of the house in a yet unseeded landscaping project. Plus
6+ of the neighbor's Muscovy ducks. The Screech owl return that I had
waited for perhaps 25 years to return was apparently killed by the
frequently seen mink -- there was mink scat in the Wood duck box with the
remains of the owl. The WD box is on a post assembled in a tee-fashion with
about 4 feet of sheet metal wrap -- the mink apparently got through the gap
made by the 2x6 tee -- the gap has been filled. Wood ducks are using 3
boxes that I can see from over my desk.

Subject: [ia-bird] Johnson-Linn County great birding
I went not once, but twice to Hickory Hill Park today. This morning at the
Warbler Walk there was good activity between 6:30-7:00am. Activity waned
off as the temp decreased and it got windy. Eventually the winds calmed a
little and it got warmer. Warbler activity really spiked again after that
and seemed steady headed into the afternoon. I got the impression that
migrants didn't really leave after the frenzy yesterday, but stayed and
were more spread out. I finished the day with 19 species of warblers (7
FOYs).

Highlights:

Hickory Hill Park #1:
-Blackburnian, Blue-winged, Golden-winged, Blue-headed Vireo (I believe the
walked finished with around 15 warbler species)

Squire Point:
-Mark Brown's two Black-crowned Night-Herons in the hardwood forest
canopy!!!
-Pileated Woodpecker
-Veery
-Yellow-throated Warbler (at least 13 warbler species still lingering
here), had one bins view with seven warbler species in close association

Hickory Hill Park #2:
-Thanks to James Huntington and Diana Pesek for calling me back. Dean
Hester was in another part of the park and I was able to get him over to
the eye-level feeding Blackburnians (3 males) and one lifer male Cape May
Warbler for him. BTW, his pictures about made me fall over backwards! We
had 13 warbler species this time.
-Hermit Thrush
-Eastern Wood-Pewee

Cedar Lake:
-Wilson's Warbler (11 warbler species on this stop, all along the paved
trail at the migrant trap, north end of the lake)
-Veery
-two Clay-colored Sparrows (along paved trail along east side, on east side
of trail where there are some short pines along a small lawn, they were
feeding in the grass and going to the fence to perch)

Sleep is overrated during peak migration. :)

Good birding,
Brandon Caswell
Marion

P.S. - Doug, thanks for the title idea...and thanks for finding that
perched Henslow's at the meeting!!

On a quick run through Cone March early afternoon, there were a small
groups of Caspian Terns in the shorebird-type habitat between V Ave and

flushed from nearby and flew south a bit, but I could not find where it

I still have a Red-breasted Nuthatch and a female Purple Finch coming into

Orioles are back in increasing numbers with a couple of Orchards. Also, RB
Grosbeaks, Indigo Buntings, Great-crested Flycatcher, Lincoln's and many
White-throated Sparrows. At least 3 Eastern Towhees. One female might be a
hybrid with a fair amount of spotting. Seeing just common warblers and
Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

Subject: [ia-bird] Pine Warbler
Missed it at the IOU Meeting only to see it at the feeders in Lake Hendricks, Riceville this morning. Best look ever at a Pine. Thought it was a Blue-winged at first, but checked out the striations under its wings, the yellow on the throat and upper belly, and the white on the under belly. The wing bars almost qualified for a Blue-winged, probably the light from the filtered sunlight. What was remarkable was that it hopped on the Prince (pink bag) finch feeder first. (Always bragging that everything likes that best.). Then it hopped to the suet, and finally on the oil sunflower feeder.

The Yellow-rumped warblers were feeding on the suet feeders. ( I have 4, but the woodpeckers were still interrupting them.)

Too bad we’re slated for a possible 2 inches of rain in the next day or so. Means that our all 5th graders in Howard Co.
Bird Program will have to be indoors.

Fantastic birding to everyone,

My Subaru took an unexpected turn towards Bacon Creek nearly throwing me
into the back seat. Being forced to go along for the ride I was please
when it stopped at the far end parking lot. Binocular in hand, but no
camera as it was beginning to sprinkle, I wandered down into the picnic
area. Start time was 12:27 end time 1:27pm. When I first arrived it was
pretty dead. About 12:55 picked up and I had 35 species just in the picnic
area below the last parking lot how about 1:25 it just quit. Crossing back
and forth there was a continued change over of species. Interesting that
there was only one sparrow species (Chipping).

First of Year Species (9) **
Warbler Species (9) That is a good number for Woodbury this early in May.
Best Birds: Blackpoll Warbler and Gray-cheecked Thrush.

Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) 12

Around 1:35 there was a singing White-eyed Vireo. Good bird for Polk Co. If
you want to see it, take the West most trail from Parking lot. Take right
fork the follows the highway. The trail follows the road pretty closely,
then there is a 45 degree turn to the left (west). Then another 45 degree

Subject: [ia-bird] greetings from the new IOU President
Greetings from your new Iowa Ornithologists' Union president. I'm excited
to get started. Many thanks to Francis Moore for all the work he did as
president of this organization the past four years. Here are a few of my
initial thoughts.



* As others have noted, this past weekend's IOU meeting was a great
success. Many thanks to IOU VP Pip Fisher, Karen Disbrow and the rest of
the Iowa City Bird Club for a really fun weekend. The weather was great
(finally!) and so were the birds. A full write-up of the weekend will soon
be published, but here's my two cents worth. While migrants were scarce,
the SE Iowa specialties more than made up for it. White-eyed Vireo,
Louisiana Waterthrush, Blue-winged Warbler, Kentucky Warbler, Cerulean
Warbler, Northern Parula, Pine Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler and
Yellow-breasted Chat put on quite a show. I personally have never
encountered the number of Kentucky Warblers my group had on the
Lacey-Keosauqua walk on Saturday. I heard that a Henslow's Sparrow put on
quite a show for one group on Sunday. The speakers were top-notch. Greg
Hoch's talk on American Woodcock elicited a lot of feedback from the crowd.
Likewise, Rick Hollis provided a pile of useful information on birding
applications available today.



Nathan Pieplow was our keynote speaker. As advertised, Nathan's one of the
foremost experts on bird sounds and both of his presentations were
educational and a lot of fun. The attendees have a whole new appreciation
for the ubiquitous Red-winged Blackbird.



* We could use some help for the Fall Meeting, We have a couple of
possible sites, but if you know of a location that would like to host us or
a possible keynote speaker, please contact Pip Fisher or me.



* We're looking for additional folks for various committees, e.g.
Membership, Communications, Publications and Projects.. We'll be
publishing more information on the responsibilities for the committees, but
if you have an interest in participating on any of them, please let me know.



* Mark Carson has agreed to audit our 2017-18 books, It's not a
tough job but a necessary one. That's an example of the many ways folks can
help with this organization.



I welcome any suggestions or comments you have about IOU.



Thanks,

Denny Thompson

Birders,

I birded from about 8am to noon today at Squaw Creek.

Highlights:
-expected thrush slam (ie no Hermit)
-16 species of warblers
-several Red-breasted Nuthatch
-Winter Wren
-at a recent prairie burn, Clay-colored, Lark, Savannah and Chipping
Sparrows feeding together

Between the meeting and today I’m at 202 species for the year in Iowa.

Linn-sane! Easily the best morning of birding I’ve ever had in the county.

Good birding,

Subject: [ia-bird] Backyard Fallout
When I stepped outside at 6:30 this morning the yard was full of birdsong.
I had a vacation day scheduled so I decided to take a page from the Dick
Sayles playbook. I spent an hour on the deck before breakfast, then after
breakfast I spent another hour on the deck and poked around the backyard a
little bit. (Full disclosure: the backyard includes a small grass lawn, a
couple acres of woods, and a small pond.) In two hours I had 61 species!
They included LEAST FLYCATCHER, BLUE-HEADED VIREO, RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH,
SWAINSON'S THRUSH, 10 warbler species including BLUE-WINGED, GOLDEN-WINGED,
many NASHVILLES and TENNESSEES, AMERICAN REDSTART, NORTHERN PARULA,
CHESTNUT-SIDED, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN, LINCOLN'S SPARROW, SCARLET
TANAGER, ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK, INDIGO BUNTING, BOBOLINK (singing
flyover!), ORCHARD ORIOLE, PURPLE FINCH, RED-HEADED WOODPECKER, PILEATED
WOODPECKER, and SOLITARY SANDPIPER (pond). Hmmm, do I really need to do all
those chores I had planned for today?

Wow! First time I have seen one of these in years, and to have it come into my yard is very special. He was sitting so prettily in a tree, then flew to where I couldn’t see him, but proceeded to sing for a while. I was so shocked that even had I had my camera in hand, I don’t think I could have focused on it.

Special thanks to the great job everyone did to make the IOU weekend a huge success - the Iowa City Bird Club for hosting it. The Field Trip leaders were indefatigable in their efforts to make sure everyone got to see the targeted species. Even to the point of arriving days ahead to scout the most likely spots.

Best sighting was the Summer Tanager on the edge of the trees at eye level singing its heart out.

Back home we seem to have more Goldfinches than usual and they brought 2 Pine Siskins with bright gold wing bars with them to the feeders. Two wonderful male Baltimore Orioles on the nectar and grape jelly feeders. So coming home was not the downer I expected after all the wonderful woodland warblers, vireos, etc. of the weekend.

Hope we’ll all get to see more great birds,

Hi Birders,

I was drawn to the trees in our backyard for 20 minutes this morning before
work after hearing my FOY Backpoll Warbler singing from our oak. Present
with him was a couple Nashville, Yellow-rumped, Yellow, and Black-and-White
Warblers as well as an American Redstart and Blue-headed Vireo. I also saw
the first Ruby-throated Hummingbird in the yard. And I added a new yard
bird to top it off...oddly, a Red-headed Woodpecker was calling and working
the linden in our neighbor's yard.

Lastly, the Northern Parula has returned to the usual spot near my office
in Ledges State Park.

A fun way to finish off a great weekend of birding with friends in SE
Iowa. Many thanks to all those who assisted with organizing a fantastic
IOU Spring Meeting!

Take care,

Forster's Terns flew over. Bank swallows singing as flying around. Two
pipits were there for some reason. A strange-sounding red-winged blackbird
at the north end near the water control structure turned out to be a
Bobolink. A single white-crowned sparrow with a group of white-throated
sparrows. Flushed 2 small stocky sparrows that re-entered the grass never
to be seen again. Grasshopper, Le Conte's? I'll never know. Altogether I
got more FOYs than I expected.

250th Str - A Black-crowned Night-Heron was in full view when I drove up.
It flew as a got up. After a few moments another flew, off to the north.
Marsh wrens singing. A male Great-tailed Grackle squeaking. Saw some

Subject: [ia-bird] Blackburnian in Jefferson County- Joyce and Todd Burkhardt
First of all, Joyce and I want to thank the IOU organizers for a wonderful
meeting this weekend. Special thanks to Brandon and James for their great
insights on our trip to Croton unit on Sat. and to Candace for not losing
anyone.

We could not make the Sunday field trip so Joyce did a local morning trip
to Whitham Woods in Fairfield where she saw (among other birds) 2 Scarlet
Tanagers, several Baltimore Orioles and 2 Orchard Orioles, and a beautiful
Green Heron.

Sunday night was a beautiful night so we went back out around 7 PM to the
Jefferson County Park and went up the hill to the playground/picnic area
north the pond. We decided to work the big oak grove there. It was quite
active and we quickly saw a Yellow-Throated Vireo, many Yellow-Rumps,
several Baltimore Orioles, and a Rose-breasted Grosbeak (M and F). We
heard a Summer Tanager and while looking for him a small flock of warblers
came through. Joyce immediately picked up the bright orange throat of a
Blackburnian. I didn't see him then so we stayed with the flock for a bit
and before long the Blackburnian gave us a beautiful shot at the top of the
tree in the descending sunlight. He was lit up beautifully! That is Joyce
and my first Blackburnian sighting in Jefferson County and FOY. More great
days ahead!

Thanks,

Todd and Joyce

Subject: [ia-bird] IOU spring meeting -Saturday field trip Van Buren County
I was unable to attend today’s activities, but yesterday was a beautiful day in Van Buren County. The field trip I took with about 20 others was one of the easier walking ones in Lacy Keosauqua Park and Sugema area. I believe the group total was 74species of birds, all of which I am not going to name. However, I think it worth noting that among our finds was a Bell’s Vireo, which Chuck Fuller said was NOT there on Thursday, 4 (at least) Bobolinks, 2Henslow’s Sparrows, (acutally it was a very good sparrow day with Lincoln’s, Swamp, White-Throated, Chipping, Song, Field, Grasshopper) Yellow-breasted Chat, and some warblers, which amazed everyone by sitting still long enough for some good looks. Those were Yellow-throated, Kentucky, and Northern Parula, if I recall. I did not see the Kentucky or Yellow-throated, as I stayed behind to photograph a pair of Summer Tanagers.
All in all it was a great day for birding and other groups had much success as well.
No news yet on where the fall meeting will be held.

One to three singing Prothonotary Warblers were back at Chichaqua Bottoms
today. I think there were 3 singing, but they made some confusing
movements.

Other FOYs today:

Ledges SP, Story Co: American Redstart, Swainson's Thrush, Rose-breasted
Grosbeak, Gray Catbird, Nashville Warbler, Indigo Bunting. Not large
numbers, however, only one of each except 3 Grosbeaks. Also got overdue
Barred Owl and Pileated Woodpecker.

any Henslow's Sparrows yet.

Friday at Ada Hayden had FOY Palm Warbler and Clay-colored Sparrow.

Good birding,

Hello everyone,



The Iowa State University Library Digital Initiatives unit is excited to
invite you to a reception celebrating the completion and launch of the
Avian Archives of Iowa Online (avIAn),

a two-year digitization project funded by the Council on Library and
Information Resources (CLIR).



The Avian Archives of Iowa Online is a web portal for digital Iowa
ornithological primary sources dating from 1895-2012. Eight archival
collections provide robust documentation

of over one hundred years of bird study in Iowa and encompass some of the
Midwest’s most influential conservationists.



The reception will be held Thursday, May 16 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the
Octagon Center for the Arts Community Gallery in Ames, IA.

*If you plan to attend, please RSVP to me at <ema......>
<ema......> by Friday, May 10.* The web portal will be available
for viewing at the reception, and I will send out the web

address after the reception for anyone unable to attend to view the site.



Thank you, and we look forward to celebrating with you!

Subject: [ia-bird] No Sighting - Spring Meeting 5/3-5
Hello Bird Lovers!



Would you like to meet the author of Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds?
Both Eastern AND Western editions? (Currently available at Amazon.com and
most other book sellers.) Well, buy your copies and head on down to
Keosauqua and join us for the IOU Spring Meeting! Not only will you be able
to meet Nathan Pieplow, he'll even autograph the books for you!



So you say that books bore you but you want to do some birding in world
class habitat during what looks to be an excellent weekend of migration? I'd
suggest you come to Keosauqua for the Saturday and Sunday morning field
trips at the IOU Spring Meeting!



Oh, I understand, you'd rather learn something about woodcocks, birding
apps, and how to better identify bird sounds? Well, this is your lucky day
chum! I happen to know of a place where you can do all 3 in one afternoon in
the scenic and historic setting of Keosauqua, IA! The afternoon sessions at
the IOU Spring Meeting will cover exactly those topics!



What would you pay now? - DON'T ANSWER YET!!! As if all the above wasn't
enough, there will be social time with some of the leading birders in the
state, wandering around the peaceful and lush forests of southeastern Iowa,
and I personally guarantee excellent weather.*



Oh, you just want to sit and have a great dinner with some friends, listen
to an interesting speaker and sit around and chat afterward? I can give you
that too.



You don't have to be an IOU Member to join us on this adventure. To sign up
and get more information about finding lodging in the area and the meals
that are going to be available at a reasonable price, head to
https://iowabirds.org/IOU/NextMeeting.aspx



See you in Keosauqua!



Pip Fisher

Vice President

Iowa Ornithologists Union



(*Note that Pip Fisher has no actual way to guarantee weather of any kind,
excellent or otherwise and any such guarantee is simply a ploy to lure you
to the IOU Spring Meeting, May 3-5, in Keosauqua, IA. Oh, you'd like to give
him a piece of your mind about this cheesy trick? I know where and when you
can find him and he'd love to hear it straight from you.:))

Yellow Throated
Yellow Rump
Black & White
Blue Winged
Kentucky
Common Yellowthroat

Other Notables:
Pileated Woodpeckers
Belted Kingfisher
Oriole
Scarlet Tanager

Wood Ducks high in trees

Did not see the resident Waterthrushes this time.

Ground is soggy so boots are recommended, though creek has dropped back to manageable depths.

Should be an awesome IOU weekend!

When I checked the Great Horned owl nest north of Grinnell on 40th this
morning I saw 3 owlets. One looked like it was about to branch and the
other 2 were still in the nest. The mother owl was perched nearby.

I was just wondering how the gravel roads are considering this area has received substantial rain the past couple of days? I have a low clearance vehicle.

Subject: [ia-bird] King Rail - Blackhawk co.
Shortly after I went to George Wyth, I decided to check out Prairie Ridge Wetland, which is private owned. While listening to several calling Soras I heard the monotone kek kek kek call of a KING RAIL. I waited a couple of minutes to see if it would call again but it didn't. So then I played the recorded call in which it responded right away with some grunting followed by the "kek" call again , which lasted about 10 seconds. After that it didn't respond again. I had my son so I couldn't stay too long.
Also there, was 2 WILSON'S PHALAROPES and a YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD. I'm gonna try again tomorrow morning with my hip waders and hopefully get a visual of the K. Rail.


Good birding,

Subject: RE: [ia-bird] IOU Spring Meeting May 3-5
According to Cornell’s BirdCast website (http://birdcast.info/) Friday night and especially Saturday night will provide excellent conditions for migration in SE Iowa – it should be a great weekend!



Below are the five field trips that will be offered Saturday and Sunday mornings:



Croton Unit of Shimek State Forest

Leaders – James Huntington and Brandon Caswell (Saturday), Dan Rose & Eric Ollie (Sunday)

This large forested area is one of the best places in Iowa to find breeding warblers and other Southeast Iowa specialties. If time allows, we may also visit the Lick Creek Unit or other nearby areas. The trip will include extensive walking along gravel roads and primitive trails. Waterproof boots are recommended for stream crossings. Target Species: Migrant warblers and other passerines, Kentucky Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Blue-winged Warbler, Northern Parula, Yellow-breasted Chat, White-eyed Vireo, Summer Tanager, and Red-shouldered Hawk. Worm-eating Warbler and Bewick’s Wren are possible.



Lacey-Keosauqua State Park & Keosauqua Unit of Shimek State Forest

Leaders – Stuart Sparkman & Karen Viste-Sparkman (Saturday), James Huntington & Brandon Caswell (Sunday)

Lacey-Keosauqua State Park offers miles of hiking trails through pristine upland woodlands. This trip will include a longer hike from Ely Ford along the snowmobile trail into the Keosauqua Unit of Shimek State Forest. Waterproof boots are recommended for stream crossings. Target species: Migrant warblers, vireos, thrushes, and other passerines, Yellow-throated Warbler, Kentucky Warbler, Northern Parula, Cerulean Warbler, Louisiana Waterthrush, and Summer Tanager. Hooded Warbler is possible.



Donnellson & Farmington Units of Shimek State Forest

Leaders – Dan Rose & Eric Ollie (Saturday), Mark Brown & Linda Rudolph (Sunday)

These two adjacent forested tracts are the only known Iowa breeding location for Pine Warbler. The trip will include walking along state forest roads and trails at multiple stops. Target species: Migrant warblers and other passerines, Pine Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Kentucky Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Henslow’s Sparrow, and Broad-winged Hawk. Hooded Warbler is possible but unexpected.



Lacey-Keosauqua State Park

Leaders: Chuck Fuller & Mark Proescholdt

Lacey-Keosauqua State Park offers miles of hiking trails through pristine upland woodlands. This trip will include shorter walks on park roads and trails at multiple stops. Target species: Migrant warblers, vireos, thrushes, and other passerines, Yellow-throated Warbler, Kentucky Warbler, Northern Parula, Cerulean Warbler, Louisiana Waterthrush, and Summer Tanager.



Lake Sugema WMA & Lacey-Keosauqua State Park

Leaders: Chris Edwards & Chris Caster

Lake Sugema is a large man-made lake surrounded by grasslands and shrublands, just south of Lacey-Keosauqua State Park. After visiting several sites around the lake, we'll spend the rest of the morning in Lacey-Keosauqua State Park. This trip will feature short or moderate walks at multiple stops. Target species: migrant waterbirds, sparrows, warblers and other passerines, Yellow-breasted Chat, Bell's Vireo, White-eyed Vireo, Henslow's Sparrow, Summer Tanager, and Yellow-throated Warbler. (NOTE: Fox River WMA and the Mt. Sterling area were removed from this itinerary due to high water and lack of shorebird habitat.)



Hope to see you there!

Hi ALL, Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend.



A couple of things: BRING re-fillable water bottles if you have them. We will have bottles of water and we will collect used ones for recycling.



It has been wet so prepare for muddy walking in some areas. IF it warms up to 70F there will be mosquitoes and ticks, so bring repellant.



The weather looks very good for the weekend ! So the Birding should be great !



Good Birding !

Subject: [ia-bird] Please join us! Avian Archives of Iowa Online Launch Reception
Hello everyone,

The Iowa State University Library Digital Initiatives unit is excited to invite you to a reception celebrating the completion and launch of the Avian Archives of Iowa Online (avIAn),
a two-year digitization project funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR).

The Avian Archives of Iowa Online is a web portal for digital Iowa ornithological primary sources dating from 1895-2012. Eight archival collections provide robust documentation
of over one hundred years of bird study in Iowa and encompass some of the Midwest's most influential conservationists.

The reception will be held Thursday, May 16 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Octagon Center for the Arts Community Gallery in Ames, IA.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to me at <emanders...><mailto:<emanders...> by Friday, May 10. The web portal will be available for viewing at the reception, and I will send out the web
address after the reception for anyone unable to attend to view the site.

Thank you, and we look forward to celebrating with you!

There was a black-necked stilt feeding in the second pond segment at Cardinal Marsh in Winneshiek County earlier this afternoon. This is the first black-necked stilt that I have ever seen there. Additionally, there is a pair of trumpeter swans nesting on the main marsh there. This is the first nesting attempt by trumpeter swans at Cardinal Marsh in the modern era.

Subject: [ia-bird] Cerulean Warbler- Pammel park. Madison County
Heard what I believe to be a Cerulean Warbler this morning at Pammel Park,
Madison County. Light was not great, but did observe wing bars and necklace
on bird high in the tree.

I did report in ebird with recording- please let me know if this is not the
correct id.
The bird was just north of the parking area by the ford at the park, close
proximity to rushing water makes a clear recording impossible.

Hi ALL,  Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend.
A couple of things:  BRING re-fillable water bottles if you have them.  We will have bottles of water and we will collect used ones for recycling.
It has been wet so prepare for muddy walking in some areas.  IF it warms up to 70F there will be mosquitoes and ticks, so bring repellant.
The weather looks very good for the weekend !  So the Birding should be great !
Good Birding !

This afternoon I took a break and visited the small wetland south west of Jefferson County Park, by the intersection of Libertyville road and Quarry Road. I counted 70+ Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs in a mixed flock, accompanied by a pair of Wilson’s phalaropes. Also saw many Barn, Tree and Northern Rough Legged Swallows.

On Monday evening my wife and I visited Lake Darling (one Black Throated Green Warbler, several Palms and countless Yellow Rumps) and on the drive home on Hwy. 1, just south of Highway 78 in a flooded farm field, saw 20+ Solitary Sandpipers plus two Lesser Yellowlegs.

It is year 5 of this project and I am once again writing to request your
help and participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves recording
migrating Mourning Warbler songs. Our lab is trying to determine what role
song can play in understanding migratory connectivity in this species. We
are interested in whether different song populations of the Mourning
Warbler (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or
separately to their respective breeding areas. Here is a link to a map
with previous years’ results based on recordings from over 100 birders.

All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some luck. Videos
with recordings are also helpful. The web page link below describes the
project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail. Please
send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound Lab (jpitocch AT

The past few days at Dunbar Slough in far western Greene County there have been upwards of 15 species of shorebirds. This morning there were 5 Marbled Godwits, Long-billed Dowitchers, Semipalmated Plovers, and a variety of other expected species. Yesterday Willet and Wilson's Phalarope were seen.

Best viewing can be done from 270th, just east of Apple Ave (county line). As well as on B Ave, 1 mile south of 270th from the parking lot on the west side of the road, just north of the S curve.

Bird on!

Subject: [ia-bird] Black-necked Stilt, Willets at Coralville Lake
The Black-necked Stilt is now viewable from the end of Curtis Bridge Rd. It’s feeding with two American Avocets. Also, from where it was scoped yesterday at the marina, very, very far out and upstream, are a suspicious group of birds that remind me of a large Willet flock, but I’ll need to hike to investigate those.

Subject: [ia-bird] Black-necked Stilt, Willets at Coralville Lake
At mid morning I scoped a distant BLACK-NECKED STILT from Mid-river Marina Rd. off of Hwy. 965. It was in the company of Blue-winged Teal at the edge of the very large mud flat
up reservoir. The stilt definitely has the legs to wade those waters but I was a little surprised to see it there.

Also, I scoped a distant WILLET at Sandy Beach and 3 WILLETS on shoreline mud flats just down reservoir from the Scales Pointe's boat ramp.

Shorebird numbers were modest at Hawkeye but I added a FOY Wilson's Phalarope. I'm building a list of FOYs but no more than one or two per trip.

Subject: [ia-bird] Hamilton Co. birds
On the way from Ogden to Hampton this morning, I stopped for a 1/2 hour
bird hike at Brandrup's Timber (county conservation area), a few miles
north of Webster City. Within a 2-minute walk from the parking area into
the edge of nearby woods, I started seeing *Blue-gray Gnatcatchers* (FOY)
everywhere in the branches, plus almost countless numbers of *Ruby-crowned
Kinglets*. Another FOY was a *Black-and-white Warbler. *There were also a
couple of *Orange-crowned Warblers*, a *Swainson's Thrush*, several *Wild
Turkeys* and some other small birds flitting out of sight. Didn't have
time to stay & keep searching for more species, but I'll bet the woods
probably had a lot of other things to see.

Hi Birders,

This morning during an Iowa Young Birders field trip we saw our FOY
Great-created Flycatcher, House Wrens, and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers at
Hickory Hill Park in Iowa City. We were also treated to a great view of a
Broad-winged Hawk perched in the open near the Conklin Lane parking lot.
We saw several Yellow-rumped Warblers, but unfortunately missed or were a
bit too early for any other warbler species. It was a great morning for a
hike!

Take care,

We’re hoping a pair of wrens use nest boxes on both sides of our kitchen as they’ve done in recent years. Love the music going back and forth past us while we have our meals! Makes everything taste better….

Subject: [ia-bird] Des Moines River arrivals, Blue-headed Vireo
Hey I-Birders

Karen, Harney and I strolled along the Des Moines River in north Des
Moines near Tai Village late Friday afternoon. A few noteworthy birds
appeared, including BROAD-WINGED HAWK, BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER, LINCOLN'S
SPARROW, two ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS and our FOY CHIMNEY SWIFT. A BROWN
THRASHER was singing lustily near the large pond. The vegetation along
this pond has improved over the years, and we've had marsh wren here a
couple of times in migration and the occasional green heron is seen here.
On our walk I spotted the rear end of a SORA disappearing into the
cattails. We could see its bright triangular bill back in the shadows, then
observed it come back out of the reeds and forage in some shorter grass.
Later, on our return, the bird was still foraging there and we watched it
for a few more minutes. I don't believe we've encountered this species
here before. I'm glad the marsh looks acceptable to a migrating sora.
As I was writing this on Saturday morning, several small birds appeared
in one of our oak trees, including RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, ORANGE-CROWNED
WARBLER, and most exciting, BLUE-HEADED VIREO.
Looking forward to seeing many of you next weekend.

Good Birding,

Stuart Sparkman

Subject: [ia-bird] Displaying Snipe, Johnson Co.
Last night after sunset at least one Wilson's Snipe was performing its
winnowing flight display at Williams Prairie in Johnson County. (The eerie
winnowing sound is made by air rushing through the outer two tail feathers
as the bird dives.) It displayed continuously for over 20 minutes, and at
times it sounded like it flew right over us, but we never spotted it.
Several other snipe were present as evidenced by their rasping 'scaip'
calls.

Subject: [ia-bird] Van Buren Co. Arrivals
I birded around Lake Sugema in Van Buren County today to scout for the IOU
meeting next weekend. I saw the following FOYs (some of which have already
been reported by others): SPOTTED SANDPIPER, EASTERN KINGBIRD, WHITE-EYED
VIREO, WARBLING VIREO, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, YELLOW WARBLER, PALM WARBLER,
YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER, HENSLOW'S SPARROW, and NORTHERN ORIOLE. I also saw
a loose flock of 50+ YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS feeding on some type of flying
insects. A territorial RED-SHOULDERED HAWK was at Fox River WMA. The water
level at Fox River WMA and Mt. Sterling is high so there's no shorebird
habitat.

Subject: [ia-bird] Sandhill Crane nest flooded, and Turkey Vulture love making
IA-BIRDers

Earlier today my wife & I observed a Sandhill Crane on a nest near the observation deck on the west end of the “Army Road” which is at the east edge of New Albin, in Allamakee Co. I believe this is likely the same nest that Bill Ohde originally posted about as the location is approx. 60 degrees from the mounted scope on the deck.

The interesting, and also sad thing is that the Mississippi River has gone up to a very high level again, and many of the crane’s feathers ( including tail and wing feathers ) are in water. Cheers for the parent bird trying to save eggs and/or young from the cold water. But for this particular nest, doing so looks like a lost cause. See photo taken during rain below. In checking with staff at the International Crane Foundation a few years ago, I was told Sandhill Cranes seldom re-nest after an original nest is lost.

Also noted this afternoon ( from our living room couch ) Turkey Vulture copulation from the top of the Black Hawk Bridge which crosses the Mississippi River at Lansing. Respecting their privacy, no photos were attempted ☺️

From: Doug & Nina Harr <dnharr...>
Subject: [ia-bird] (not an observation) Federal Breeding Bird Survey: 6 Iowa routes available
Iowa currently has six federal Breeding Bird Survey routes vacant and needs
volunteers to conduct an annual survey. Vacant route names (and general
locations) are as follows:

- Williamsburg (just south of I-80 and the Amanas)
- Neola (near I-80, about 20 mi. NE of Council Bluffs)
- Hudson (about 2 mi. SW of Waterloo)
- Dinsdale (about 10 mi. SW of Waterloo and the nearby Hudson route)
- Washta (about 15 mi. SW of Cherokee)
- Burchinal (about 6 mi. south of Clear Lake-Mason City)

If any knowledgeable Iowa birders are interested, please reply ASAP to this
email message for more information on how to apply. Here are some
requirements to know before volunteering:

- Volunteers must be familiar with identifying *most* avian species
typically found in Iowa, especially those in the area of a selected survey
route.
- Volunteers should plan to conduct the survey for *at least* 3 years,
because data collected cannot become part of long-term population studies
unless multiple-year surveys are conducted by the same person, assuring
accurateness of data collected.
- Before doing a survey route, first-time volunteers must complete a
short on-line training session, regarding survey methods and other
information.
- A volunteer may have someone act as an assistant to drive or enter
data on field survey forms; however, the helper may *NOT* assist in
identifying a bird by sight or sound.
- Surveys are conducted during peak breeding season, from late May to
early July.
- Surveys start 1/2 hour before sunrise, on a day with low wind speed
and no precipitation.
- Each route is 25 miles long, with one stop every 1/2 mile, for a total
of 50 count points.
- Route maps depicting & describing count-stop points will be provided
by the BBS office.
- During a 3-minute time period at each stop, all birds seen or heard
within 1/4 mile are recorded on field data sheets. A typical survey takes 4
to 4.5 hours to complete.
- After survey completion, data may be entered online and/or by mailing
in field data sheets.

It would be an honor for all of Iowa's routes to have volunteers and we
likely would be recognized by the BBS office, at Pautuxent Wildlife
Research Center in Maryland. Let's hope we can get closer to achieving
that goal this year.

Subject: [ia-bird] New Albin sandhill crane nest update: ok as of Apr-24 @6pm
Yesterday, visited the Pool Slough observation deck from 5pm to 6pm.
Immediately saw a crane, and had excellent views (thru deck scope)
as kindly reported by Bill Ohde. :)

Both eggs are still there, and while the water is very high, the
cranes seem focused on preserving the nest.
The other parent arrived, parked on a 2nd tiny clump, then explored
a much larger spit immediately beside both tiny clumps, on which a
single Canada Goose was parked (nesting?).
I'm wondering if he/she was looking for a better spot to move the
eggs to? Does anyone know if cranes can/do move eggs?
After a while, the first crane flew off, and the 2nd took over the
nest.

Catching the changing of the guard was pure dumb timing luck, and
quite a thrill for me. :)

I didn't get any good pics (18-year-old 2-megapixel camera), but
here's a shot showing both cranes on the two tiny clumps, and the
larger spit with the goose (main goal is to aid your speculations
as to the possibility of the cranes moving the eggs):
http://puffin.net/wildlife/picoweek.php?id=89
Here's the first crane in flight:
http://puffin.net/wildlife/picoweek.php?id=90
Both pages are accessible with _ANY_ browser security settings,
because most sites now suck at visitor security, but I don't. :)

In addition to Bill's report, there was a Yellow-rumped Warbler by
the deck, thousands of tiny bugs (midges?), and a Bald Eagle nest
(on what looked to me like an osprey nesting platform - I was
suitably disappointed). One eagle did a few fly-bys while I was
there, at one point spooking several hundred Coots.

A big thanks to Bill for the original report, and some very helpful
direct email replies. I had to drive thru the general area, and
couldn't pass up a chance to experience this unusual view. :)
