Subject: [ia-bird] Saylorville Reservoir CBC.
The annual Saylorville Reservoir CBC was held on Sunday, December 16th in perfect weather and tallied a slightly-above-average 86 species. The most noteworthy highlight was that we tallied THREE warbler species, surely a first for an Iowa CBC - single Orange-crowned Warbler and Common Yellowthroat in addition to the more expected Yellow-rumped Warbler. Other highlights were 18 waterfowl species (Tundra Swan was notable), Am. White Pelican, Red-shouldered Hawk, Sandhill Crane, all 7 regular woodpecker species, Merlin, Northern Shrike, Carolina and Winter wrens, and Snow Bunting. Many thanks to all those who helped this year!

Subject: [ia-bird] Beautiful Common Goldeneyes
During a pleasant outing at Saylorville today, I saw about 20 Common
Goldeneyes in open water above the dam where the water passes through the
dam. Also present were a pair of Canvasbacks. The sunlight illuminated the
green heads of the male Goldeneyes quite nicely. It was interesting to
watch the Goldeneyes catch fish and then be chased by Canada Geese and
Mallards in attempts to get the Goldeneyes drop the fish. They succeeded
some of the time. A large flock of Pelicans was resting in one of the ponds
below the dam. Also present was a pair of Redhead ducks.

Subject: [ia-bird] Boone Co. Golden Eagle
After finding the *Northern Shrike* near Saylorville Lake this morning, I
birded my way up to northern Boone County. There I found a *Golden Eagle*
and managed some bad but still useful photos to verify the ID. The eagle
was first seen on a utility pole about 2 mi. SW of Bjorkboda Marsh, and
then was sitting in a corn stubble field on a glacial knob out in the very
center of a square mile of private land (no way to get closer). It took
off and disappeared heading NE, towards Bjorkboda at about 2:45 this
afternoon.

Subject: [ia-bird] Snowy Owl - Lyon Co.
Birders,

I got a report of an injured adult male Snowy Owl that is now on its way to a rehabber. Specifically, it was picked up near the intersection of 140th St. and Beech Ave.

This is the first confirmed report I have heard of this season. I remember there being a second hand report on this list a while back, but hadn't heard any confirmation.

Keep your eyes peeled!

Bird on,
Matt

Subject: [ia-bird] Brown-headed Cowbird
We've had a Brown-headed Cowbird here at Thorpe Park (Winnebago County) for
the last couple of weeks. It feeds under the bird feeders with the
Cardinals, Juncos, Blue Jays, and White-throated Sparrows. We're curious to
see if it stays around all winter like our Brown Thrasher did last year!
We're also seeing White-breasted Nuthatches, Red-breasted Nuthatches,
Goldfinches, Downy Woodpeckers, Hairy Woodpeckers, Red-bellied Woodpeckers,
Harris Sparrows, and Pine Siskins.

Subject: [ia-bird] Pine Siskins south of Boone
This morning at sunrise, we had at least 48 Pine Siskins in the yard. They
enjoy the upside down feeder with a 50-50 mix of fine sunflower chips and
niger thistle, but it only has 8 ports. So a bunch were on the ground too,
at other feeders and waiting in the trees. Social networking seems to be
working.

We also have a single grackle visiting us, although I haven't seen it yet
today.

The mute swan is back at Maffitt Reservoir. It’s best viewed from the Polk Co side (use East side entrance). There are around 170 swans so likely a few Tundras too but I’ve not seen any yet.

Subject: [ia-bird] Owls in Moorehead Park-West of Ida Grove-Ida County.
Hello,

After many, many days of walking the pine trees in Moorehead Park, Ida County, I found a wintering Saw-whet Owl this morning. It came in last night as it was not there yesterday. For anyone really needing to see one this winter, it will be here all day, but after dark, it may leave us as others have done, in the past.
I am here today, for free guiding service if anyone is interested.
I have one viewer headed here at 1 p.m. this afternoon. This image is the one i found this morning

Hi all:

A gray catbird visited my yard yesterday morning (December 16, 1004
Roosevelt, Ames). I heard the "mew" call several times, and first thought
it might be a blue jay doing a good imitation. However, I then saw it
perched in a redbud with a group of cardinals.

Subject: [ia-bird] Christmas bird count

We had wonderful weather for a bird count. And though some of us fell short of our goal, (no names will be given out), combined we had a great count.
We tallied up 55 species. We had ten singletons, which could have made for a low count had we not had those birds. We missed some birds that we saw as late as last weekend.

Highlights were:

51 Trumpeter Swans, 23 gray partridge in one group, in a practically partridge-less year, 1 Rough-legged Hawk, we usually have more,
no Screech Owl, first time in years, (though two had been seen up to last week). Many Red-breasted Nuthatches and 152 Pine Siskins, Bluebirds, Hermit Thrush, 21 White-throated Sparrows,
Purple Finch, 3 Chipping Sparrows AND at a private residence, a male Western Tanager.

The best four-legged creature was a Mink, swimming and diving in a small open area of water in the ice.

What a great day of birding!

Great birding to all for the coming year !!!

Subject: [ia-bird] Spirit Lake CBC
Unless an unexpected feeder counter submission arrives between now and
Monday the tally for the Spirit Lake Christmas Bird Count will stand at 51
species. There was very little open water on the lakes but substantial
moving water open along Milford Creek and the Little Sioux River. Notable
hits and misses were as follows:

. The Carolina Wren visiting a feeder setup in Milford recently and
confirmed yesterday afternoon could not be found today by visitors to the
yard. The homeowner may yet file a feeder report.

. An American White Pelican was walking around on the ice near the
flow from Little Spirit Lake into Spirit Lake. It apparently can fly but
does not seem to know it should be long gone!

. Ed Thelen could not join the count today due to a family Christmas
obligation but reported 14 Pine Siskins at his feeder early this morning and
then found a Merlin on the Spring Run sign as he drove away south. Imagine
if he had been able to help!

. One Snow Goose and one Greater White-fronted Goose played "Where's
Waldo" among thousands of Canada Geese.

. Mallard dabbling ducks and goldeneye diving ducks were
interspersed with small numbers of Am Black Duck, N. Pintail, Gadwall, Wood
Duck, Redhead, scaup and Hooded Merganser.

. An Eastern Meadowlark with flaring white retrices photographed
yesterday could not be found again today.

. Two individual female Purple Finches were found in separate
locations by different field parties.

. Doug Marske looked past the Am Tree Sparrow I was fixated on and
helped me realize an immature Northern Shrike was also interested in the
sparrow from a nearby treetop.



It was a great day spent in a great way! May your Christmas birds and
blessings be counted and plentiful!

Subject: [ia-bird] Ledges State Park Thursday morning
I took a long hike in the back woods of Ledges this morning, but the bird
list was pretty short. The only uncommon winter birds I found were 3
Red-headed Woodpeckers and a flicker. I looked over a lot of cedar trees,
and they were not harboring any little owls, and very few (almost none)
juniper berries.

At the feeders, like Doug in Ogden, our Pine Siskins have increased to
10+. We also have a White-throated Sparrow, and a few Purple Finches.
Healthy numbers of goldfinches, juncoes, Red-bellied and Downy Woodpeckers,
and cardinals.

Subject: Re: [ia-bird] Greater Scaup & White-winged Scoter at Red Rock RA, Marion County
Iowa Birders;


The Greater Scaup below the dam at Lake Red Rock are fairly close and are cooperative. They are best viewed from the Pella side of the dam - take the first turn into Howell Station Campground and drive straight on the entrance road until it ends in a loop. The birds can be viewed from the bike trail that runs right next to this parking loop. I had the chance to study the scaup on Sunday, finally adding this "nemesis bird" to my life list. Now if Aaron will find a Red-necked Grebe for me next spring and arrange for it to stick around, I will be truly happy. On a practical note, I have poured through herds of scaup for the past 25 years looking for Greater Scaup. I was to the point where I was convinced I was mis-identifying them. But when I saw these at Red Rock, I knew I was seeing something different within the first couple of seconds. Having learned to recognize many species of mammals, birds, plants, etc. over the past decades, that seems to be a pattern. Once you have seen a thousand of the common species, you will know the less common one when you see it. You may not instantly know exactly what it is, but you will know that it is not the common species that you have seen many times. Enjoy the Xmas Bird Count season everyone, Russ, Pella/Knoxville.

Today at about 3:50 Pm I photographed an Eastern Towhee in my yard. I live
on the Cedar River in Cedar County about 3.5 miles north of I-80. My
address is 249 W. Rochester Ave. Atalissa, IA.
This bird was with a group of House Sparrows that feed from my feeders.
Is this a late date for this species?
The last message may have been too large to send so I'll attach just one
photo instead of three.

There is a group of about 200 gulls at Grays Lake that includes an adult

This evening I relocated Steve Freed's male BLACK SCOTER at the lower half of Butterworth Parkway in Moline. This neat "scooter" is very black and its bill very orange.

Also at Butterworth were 1000+ Herring and Ring-billed Gulls at sunset. Notable gulls were scarce but I did scope 1 adult Lesser Black-backed Gull and 1 Adult Thayer's Gull.

On the Iowa side of the river, Nahant Marsh proved to be the best spot for gulls with 1 juv. Thayer's Gull notable.

Subject: [ia-bird] Gray Partridge, SW Linn Co.
Birders,

Upon checking for Short-eared Owl west of the Eastern Iowa Airport around
dusk, I found covey of 8 GRAY PARTRIDGE. Recent sightings of this species
seem to be concentrated around far NW Linn County. The location of these is
exactly 1.6 miles north of the county border with Johnson. Gray Partridge
have been absent (detection-wise) in Johnson Co. for what I believe has
been years. It seems pretty logical the next GRPA sighting will be in far
NW Johnson (I know that’s where I’ll be looking).

Good birding,

From: Paul Hertzel <phertzel...>
Subject: [ia-bird] Re: Documenting birds
An interesting fall season has finally expired, and so several IOU
review processes will begin. One of them is the records committee review
of the casual and accidental species reported. Some of these reports
have adequate support, like the Mason City Varied Thrush which has been
chronicled by 7 different people! Assuming the record is accepted, all 7
documentations will make up the permanent record for this event.  Others
could use a bit more support. Here is short list of review species
reported during the fall season and that have only 1 or 2 supporting
documentations:

Mottled Duck, 26 Aug, Polk Co. (2 doc.s)
Pomarine Jaeger, 8 Sep, Red Rock Res. (2)
Clark's Grebe, 22 Sep, Trumbull L (2)
Say's Phoebe, 26 Oct, Union Co. (1)
California Gull, 12 Nov, Lee Co. (1)

If you saw any of these species well enough to confirm the
identification, please consider adding a documentation to support the
record. If you need help doing so, please let me know.

Many other sightings, although not needing formal documentations, could
have significance in other ways that should be shared through the field
report process. Please consider contributing your records of unusual or
late breeders, regular but rare or interesting migrants, early or late
seasonal occurrences, unusual numbers of certain species, or
out-of-usual-range species for publication in the fall field report.

Subject: [ia-bird] IOU Field Trip Report: Mississippi River - Pool 13
Greetings!

Despite the unfavorable weather, 8 birders participated in the IOU Events
Committee's field trip that took a birding tour around Pool 13 on the
Mississippi River. Whatever the weather, the beauty of this area prevails
and it never fails to produce some good birding. We birded our way up the
Illinois side and then down the Iowa side hitting places in the Upper
Mississippi River Wildlife and Fish Refuge such as Lock and Dam 13, Thomson
Causeway, Big Slough, Ingersoll Wetland, Spring Lake, Sabula, and Bulger's
Hollow. The birding was almost exclusively from the shelter of the cars,
but we did manage to find 41 species of birds. With beautiful and
productive habitat, good birds, and great companionship a wonderful time
was had by all! Here is our bird list:


- Canada Goose
- Tundra Swan (600-700)
- Mallard
- Canvasback
- Lesser Scaup
- White-winged Scoter (at Big Slough in Illinois waters)
- Bufflehead
- Common Goldeneye
- Common Merganser
- Mourning Dove
- Sandhill Crane (a low, calling flyover of 10-12 birds)
- Ring-billed Gull
- Herring Gull
- Great Blue Heron (11 in one spot in Sabula)
- Great Egret (2 with the GBHE in Sabula)
- Northern Harrier
- Bald Eagle (including 8 on the ice at Sabula)
- Red-tailed Hawk
- Red-headed Woodpecker
- Red-bellied Woodpecker
- Downy Woodpecker
- Northern Flicker
- Blue Jay
- American Crow
- Horned Lark
- Black-capped Chickadee
- White-breasted Nuthatch
- Carolina Wren
- Eastern Bluebird
- American Robin
- European Starling
- House Finch
- American Goldfinch
- Lapland Longspur
- Snow Bunting (flock of ~20 just north of Thomson Federal Prison)
- American Tree Sparrow
- Dark-eyed Junco
- White-throated Sparrow
- Northern Cardinal
- House Sparrow
- Eurasian Tree Sparrow

Hello,

I had an interesting conversation with a local duck hunter I work with
today.

He showed me a photo of the ducks he and his fellow hunters had taken last
Saturday from the mile long bridge area at Saylorville Reservoir in Polk CO.

Included in the photo were three Drake Mallards and four Black Scoter
drakes and two Black Scoter hens. He said the guys he was with knew what
they were shooting at and wanted the specimens for their taxidermy
collections. He also said that the did not shoot two other birds. That
would put the total number at Saylorville that day at 8. They collected the
birds in the morning. They were in a small grouping by themselves.

I presume this is an extraordinary number. I know many of you will have
opinions about the ethics of shooting the birds and I don't have any
intention of stirring up a debate about it. But it is definitely
noteworthy.

Took the gravel roads back home from Iowa City to Buffalo today and lots of
activity. Most of the roadside flocks were too jumpy to get a good look
at, but did get to see one flock of 15-20 Lapland longspurs, then a mixed
flock of longspurs and horned larks. Five MEADOWLARKS (WTH?), a couple of
kestrels, red-tailed hawks, and a nice collection of the usual suspects
rounded out the trip, mostly along 580th St. Another interesting flock
appeared as I turned off hwy 22 toward the back entrance of Pike Run but it
was getting just a little too dark to ID most of them other then some
horned larks and juncos. They were having a good time hopping up and down
in place reaching for grass seed heads. Very silly looking.

Subject: [ia-bird] Iowa City birds
Hi, birders, I just made a short circuit through the beautifully snowy south
end of Hickory Hill Park and was treated to 4 species of woodpeckers:
Hairy, Downy, Red-bellied, and Pileated (the latter just inside the
Bloomington St. entrance). I also had 5 Bald Eagles fly overhead, 4 very
high and headed south, the 5th low and going north.



Around my yard feeders I have had 3-4 Red-breasted Nuthatches every day
since early October, and the snow hasn't deterred them yet today. I also
get a glimpse of a Carolina Wren now and then. Along with all the usuals,
esp. what has seemed like a very high number of cardinals since summer.

Subject: [ia-bird] varied thrush- not a sighting
Hello all. I was wondering if the Varied Thrush is still present in Cerro Gordo County. I have been hoping to make the trek from Iowa City and tomorrow is my best chance to do so. Please let me know if you have any information on it's current status. Thank you very much,

Subject: [ia-bird] Water and ice
Yesterday West Lake Okoboji was still wide open. At the south end there
were two Eared Grebes of note with other expected divers and of course,
Mallards and coots. A very large concentration of Canada Geese included
many Cackling and an estimation of their numbers was 750 with a flock of
nine then flying over and "cackling" so we settled on 759. Halfway up the
lake I picked up a strange looking bird flying low over the water. I am not
used to seeing flying loons in basic plumage and all the white gave a
ghostly image!



Spirit Lake had frozen over completely last week but warmer winds had opened
up the north half of the lake. It was quiet except for the ice hardy Common
Mergansers and Common Goldeneyes. There were Ring-billed and Herring Gulls
hanging about the diving flocks and hoping to steal a fish dinner. We did
locate a second year Iceland/Thayer's Gull with them. At the drainage from
Little Spirit into Big Spirit there was a pale bedraggled pelican floating
quietly and probably near the end of its days. Based on the forecast, ice
will return this week to Spirit Lake.

Hey all!

I am sending out a reminder that the IOU Event Committee's field trip to
Pool 13 of the Mississippi River is scheduled for exactly one week from
today, Saturday, December 1. I did a little scouting over the holiday and
found waterfowl to be in great abundance and diversity. For just a sample I
will tell you that I found a raft of (easily) 20,000 diving ducks out in
the main channel by the lock and in a harvested ag field in Illinois I
stumbled upon a foraging flock of Tundra Swans that I estimated to be at
least 900 strong! Yes, I said 900! I ran across a few smaller flocks of
swans of "just" 200 or so... Eagles were definitely present.

If you wish to join us PLEASE sign up on the IOU website. It helps us out
tremendously to know what the group size will be before we get there. If
you are uncertain that you can make it, sign up anyway. It is better to
sign up and not show up than to show up without signing up. If you do show
up with signing up, we will still certainly welcome you warmly, but it
would be great if you could do us a favor and pre-register. We *will be*
condensing the group into the smallest carpool caravan as possible and
will then depart from the southwest corner of the Clinton, IA Hy-Vee
parking lot at 8:00 AM. You can sign up using this link:
https://iowabirds.org/Connections/SpecialEvents.aspx

Thanks! I hope to see you there!

There are 3 Tundra Swans with 25 Trumpeter Swans at the Mt. Sterling
wetlands. A Red-shouldered Hawk, Harrier and Eastern Bluebirds we're also
seen. Gadwall, Green-winged Teal and N. Pintail shared the water with
Mallards & Canada Geese.

At Lacey-Keo I walked the trails east of the lake and there were 4
Red-headed Woodpeckers; Purple Finch, Brown Creeper and I heard a Pileated
WP.

At home in Bentonsport, the Carolina Wren was calling when I arrived and we
now have 3 Red-breasted Nuthatches at our feeders. Other yard birds
include Tufted Titmice, Eastern Bluebirds, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and a
flyover dark morph Red-tailed Hawk.

During the corn harvest, while tending to a tractor and grain cart, I
observed two days in a row, a dark morph Rough-legged Hawk. I figured it
was the same bird both days, hunting mice and rabbits while we harvested
corn. The bird must have observed on Tuesday afternoon that we were not
finished with the harvest, so hung around for us to finish up today.

Believe it or not.

Was at Lime Creek Nature Center this afternoon. From about 1:50 to 2:15 PM the Varied Thrush showed off and just perched on a bare branch for us. The conservation person said it had not been reported in the AM.

The Nature Center is closed Thursday and Friday, but you can walk around to the south side of the building to observe the feeders area.

Saw 2 male purple finch and 1 female. A fox sparrow was sporting an interesting throat color. Lots of juncos and several goldfinch, woodpeckers, and nuthatches.

Would have stayed longer, but the stores were calling.

My husband (a non-birder) stopped at the nature center to see what all the
fuss is about. He said the bird was sitting in the tree right by the
feeders - easy to see. This was at 2:30pm.

I will be volunteering at Lime Creek Nature Center Saturday morning 9am-1pm
so the building will be open with viewing from the windows. I will post

I had a very late adult SABINE'S GULL below Saylorville dam at 12:45 this
afternoon. It was on the ice, but took off by itself and hasn't been seen
again. A 2nd-cycle GLAUCOUS GULL was seen by some there late this morning,
but I wasn't able to relocate it.

Subject: [ia-bird] Howard County horned larks
Spent the morning road birding, to see if anything interesting followed the other day's snowfall in. Saw two small flocks of horned larks near Lylah's Marsh north of Elma, and several more flocks in the area of Iris Avenue northeast of Saratoga. No sign of snowy owls yet-I figured it's a touch early, even though the area usually ends up with several. Lots of pheasants roaming fields that seemed to know they're safe on the posted land. The only raptors I saw were one bald eagle and two red-tailed hawks. The horned larks were a nice treat, they seemed a bit early for the area but were too skittish to get any photos.

Subject: [ia-bird] Woodbury County
Greeting from Sioux City,

Having had my best spring ever in Woodbury County I was surprised three
months ago when I checked missing birds on my list and found that I did not
have Common Golden-eye yet so many trips recently to look for one. Lack
of waterfowl in general everywhere in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska has
really concerned me but today I found the biggest concentration of
waterfowl in Woodbury so far this fall. Among the rather sparse species
count were 35 Common Golden-eye (240 Woodbury for the year--20 more that my
Big Woodbury County goal.) Still decent opportunity for Snow Bunting,
Common Redpoll, both Crossbills, and maybe a Long-eared Owl. With only 16
days of left in the year where I will be in Woodbury County maybe I am done
for the year?!?

Wish I had time to chase the Varied Thrush. What an awesome find!!

God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Subject: [ia-bird] Long-tailed Duck at Lake Macbride
 This morning I scoped a distant female LONG-TAILED DUCK from the jetty on the south side of the north arm.
The duck was at the extreme west end of the arm and did wander around the bend a short ways towards the dam.

 Also of note were a pair of TUNDRA SWANS to the east. They were whiter than snow against the icy blue waters.
