Chuck & Jim Fuller saw both birds today mating again.

This is in Burlington, Des Moines County.

Subject: [ia-bird] Red Crossbill - Dallas Co
A lone Red Crossbill is still present at Kuehn Conservation this evening.
The bird was spotted by Mike Havlik this morning near the parking area.
Relocating the bird may be tricky if it sticks around; it's been silent and
just disappeared into the stand of pine just SE of the parking lot.

Subject: Re: [ia-bird] Kentucky Warbler at Saylorville
We had family visiting from out of town this morning, so it was almost 2 pm
before Nadia and I made it to Oak Grove. We didn't find the Kentucky
Warbler.

We had a female Bay-breasted along the road and a gorgeous Mourning Warbler
in the campground between the shelter and the dumpsters. Tennessee was
heard-only.

Non-warblers included both Summer and Scarlet Tanager and Eastern Towhee.

We left around 3 pm when the heavy rain started.

Thanks to Linda Quinn and the Iowa City Bird Club, we learned about Two
Horse Farm, near Solon.
This morning we visited and got a beautiful singing Summer Tanager, right
near the parking lot. That was a first of year bird for us. We also heard
first-of year Kentucky Warbler and Yellow-Billed Cuckoo from the woods.
Birding along the edges of the forest there seems to work best.

At Tyson Bend today there were tons of Baltimore orioles and Orchard orioles. And this one that Merlin says is a "Bar-winged" oriole Here are about 5 photos. The lighting wasn't great, but hopefully you can see enough. Does Bar-winged oriole sound reasonable?

I don't think it's likely unless someone who went birding on the south
shore of Guatemala or El Salvador thinks it looks like one since they're
limited to there range-wise from a search. It'd be a US record if it was
one, which'd be something

Friday noon, two Western Kingbirds are apparently nesting on a cell phone
tower just east of the Des Moines Central Campus greenhouse. The building

The Kingbirds were flying up to the area where a small round antenna is
attached to the tower. They were active, vocal and also hunting from a big
mulberry tree right next to the tower.

Subject: [ia-bird] YES - Polk County Hooded Warbler
Following up on RJ's eBird report, I stopped at Ashworth-Greenwood Park to
look for the Hooded Warbler. When I arrived at 11:50 am, the bird could be
heard from the Ashworth Pool parking lot (if you are going to the park for
the first time, the pool parking lot is the best destination to put into
Google Maps).

Hop directly onto the path and cross the small wooden bridge. At the end of
the bridge, turn left and head uphill. The bird was singing at the first
intersection on that mountain bike trail. The warbler sang consistently the
entire 30 minutes I was there, never stopping for more than a couple of
minutes at a time.

Accessibility note: the trail is dirt and steep-ish, and there isn't
anywhere to sit due to poison ivy in proximity to the nearby fallen logs.
The trail can get busy, so you need to be prepared to step out of the way
when bikes come through.

Subject: [ia-bird] Barn Owl in Cedar Rapids
Hey all-

I was out for a walk to try and get sleepy last night in near NE Cedar
Rapids, near Northview Park, when I heard a BARN OWL scream several times
overhead. I was able to poorly capture a single utterance. The bird was
obviously in flight. I'll wander around here at night again and see if
anything crops up, and perhaps ask around... there's a bit of grass/prairie
near the Brucemore Estate and I wonder if it's taken up shop, or if it was
just passing through?

Not sure how many recent records there are of these in Linn County.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S174611655

There was a bit of night flight as well, accounting for the other awesome
birds on that list. It's always great to hear the FRRRT of a Dickcissel
overhead in the middle of the night.

Subject: [ia-bird] new Johnson Co. Big Day record
Hi all,

Mark Brown, Jayden Bowen and myself were able to break the Johnson County
Big Day record 11 May 2024 during Iowa City Bird Club's annual Spring
Count. I suppose it was a Big Day in a loose sense, since we were loyal to
birding territories for the count in the morning (Terry Trueblood and
Sycamore Bottoms area). Despite not birding the best warbler spots in
Johnson County in the morning, we were able to see quite a few, however.

Link to trip report on eBird: https://ebird.org/tripreport/238003

Species synopsis/highlights:
-9 waterfowl sp. despite divers being mostly cleared from the county for
what seems like awhile now
-16 species of shorebirds
-vireo slam
-a late American Pipet
-20 species of warblers

We missed a Barn Owl stakeout by about a week, unfortunately. It is good to
see that species' detection in Johnson County over the past few years, at
the least. One of the best of two spots for Northern Mockingbird and
Loggerhead Shrike seemed void, at least at the moment. The spot along the
county road in NW Johnson County may be the last stronghold, but we didn't
have time to check that.

Notable misses: Pileated Woodpecker, Black-throated Green Warbler,
Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Yellow-breasted Chat (ran out of time to check best
spot), Henslow's Sparrow (ran out of time to check annual spot)

This was a bittersweet day and I was glad to spend it with some great
birding friends. In July I am moving to Eden Prairie, Minnesota with my
wife and kids (and pets). I will look forward to getting back to Iowa to
see family and friends every now and then.

Good birding,
Brandon Caswell

Ben Baldwin, Logan Wilson, Nathan Miller, Josh Livingston and I did a Big Day today in Union, Decatur and Ringgold Counties. We totaled 169, with 158 in Decatur County. Highlights include Painted Bunting, 11 species of waterfowl, 16 shorebirds, and 26 warblers. We missed several birds we had staked out, LeConte Sparrow, White-eyed Vireo, and White Pelican. We didn't make our goal, but had a great time birding the many habitats in Southern Iowa.

Hey Everyone,

I went out birding today and my last stop was Lake Red Rock, below the dam on the Knoxville side. I need some help with Identification. I am not great at identifying characteristics of Gulls. I don't know if I saw a Bonaparte Gull or a Franklin's Gull. E-bird says that both have been reported in the last 12-21 days. Has anyone been down there lately to confirm?

Same situation with the Caspian Tern and the Common Tern. I thought I spotted the Common Tern today but like Gulls I am not confident. Thanks for your help.

This looks like a "Troyer" style bluebird house with a slot entry. Supposed
to be more house sparrow resistant. The slot opening is supposed to let
more light inside the box- supposedly something house sparrows do not like

Subject: [ia-bird] Migration on Radar - Thursday Evening May 9th
Yesterday evening after sunset, with a north wind in the lower atmosphere,
it was interesting to see that NWS radars showed birds migrating toward the
WEST. The Des Moines radar showed the characteristic first echoes along
river valleys. Then you could see the pattern of returns drifting
westward, almost like smoke from fireworks. A light migration continued
past midnight.

Was it an repositioning flight of birds close to their final destination,
or well-fed motivated birds with a final destination farther northwest?
Other ideas?

Hi,   I have been successfully using this style of bluebird with the
slot top for many many years.
When building the houses it is easier to cut the top short for the slot
than drilling a hole in the
right spot.   I get 2-4  fledges a year doing this.

Good birding

There is currently a Snowy Egret hanging out on the south side of Little

across the bay from the south boat ramp, and I watched as it flew into the

pelican covered in black around the body, neck, and chest. Must've gotten

They have these kind of “bird houses” at Ewing Park, in Des Moines, relatively close off the walkway. I saw a bluebird perched atop it yesterday with a worm in its mouth. I’ve been told bluebird houses have a hole for the bird to enter, unlike this rectangular opening at the top of the front face. Someone suggested bat house but that doesn’t seem to fit - they are said to not be very deep with slats down the front and 12-20 feet off the ground. This was not anywhere near that tall. Does anyone know why and what/who it’s for and why it’s made like that?

Subject: [ia-bird] Western Kingbird ? Dallas County
Hello

Sorry for the late in the day post. It wasn't until I got home later in the
afternoon today that I started thinking I had seen a Western Kingbird and
not my FOY Great-crested Flycatcher. I've attached a pic. I am always
second guessing myself. But I realized that this bird was found on a fence
near a grassy pasture along with blackbirds, Eastern Kingbirds, and my FOY
Dicksissel. It was not found in a wooded area at all.

This was along 230th Street a few miles west of Stine Farms in Dallas
County. I don't remember the nearest cross gravel road.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Karen Fieg

Subject: [ia-bird] Gray Partridge & more in central Iowa
I found 5 new FOY species today, birding Boone, NE Polk, & NW Dallas
counties. My 3 best were:

*Gray Partridge*--a pair 2 mi. NW of Woodward, along R18's curved corner (L
Ave. & 325th St., just into Boone Co.)
*Bell's Vireo*--3 singing in trees & shrubs near the far north end of NW
100th St. at Big Creek WMA.
*Clay-colored Sparrow*--near the Bell's Vireos at above site. I haven't
been able to find any of these for the past 2 or 3 years, but this time I
even managed to get my first photos ever taken of one!

The bird was seen at 3:05 when you access the gate you walk back until the
trail splits. I had just started on the left-hand side when I saw a little
bird running around in the leaves and it flushed into some brush right next
to the trail where the brush starts, and the grass ends very cooperative,
mostly doing chips. Earlier it had been heard right near the gate
repeatedly and then it disappeared. No one had seen it at that time
including myself. Thanks again whoever found it. I think it was Kevin.
Thanks for all the help from everybody. It does not appear to be in a hurry
to leave , if you can get out tonight, that would be great. If not first

Subject: [ia-bird] Painted Bunting Union County
A group of young birders informed me they'd found a Painted Bunting in Union County. I dropped everything and drove the 30 minutes to look for it. After about 20 minutes we relocated it. A beautiful male. Located on private property and not viewable from the road.

Subject: [ia-bird] Black-bellied Whistling Ducks
There continues a pair of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks on private property
in Grimes, Polk County. First viewed by family last week. The family has a
pond that is not visible from the street, so the only way to view the ducks
is by driving up to the house. It is also surrounded by woods.

The owner has requested that he or his wife be contacted BEFORE going to
see the ducks. They are being very kind in letting people view the ducks.

If you are interested, please email back to me and I will give you contact
information. I was gone from home over the past three days, so just now
posting. Glad the ducks are still there. Maybe nesting?

Swainson's Warbler appears to be confirmed. John Bissell and I relocated
the bird in the same location around 11:15AM. John had a brief visual ID,
and the bird is still singing regularly. The bird is mostly keeping further
back in the denser understory, so we weren't able to get a photo. Bird was
still present and singing as we left a moment ago.

Taken today at the stream that travels through the Bison Enclosure on the West side. This is a first for me at Neal Smith. With the drought this stream has typically been low so maybe I just haven’t noticed any water birds in the past. Maybe this is rare? I really don’t know.

Subject: [ia-bird] Prairie Warbler and more from Lee County
Today at the Croton West Unit of Shimek State Forest in Lee County, one or
two male PRAIRIE WARBLERS were singing in the usual field, which is becoming
more overgrown and difficult to traverse every year. I made it all the way
to the south end of that field before finding one, then on the way back,
possibly the same or another bird was singing near the north end. Other
birds at Croton West included WHITE-EYED VIREO (4), YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT
(1), and BLUE-WINGED WARBLER (4).



Highlights from the main Croton Unit included BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO (1),
RED-SHOULDERED HAWK (2), WHITE-EYED VIREO (4), YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT (4),
KENTUCKY WARBLER (4), and NORTHERN PARULA (4).



At the Donnellson Unit were BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO (1), BROAD-WINGED HAWK (1),
and YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT (1).



At the Farmington Unit were ACADIAN FLYCATCHER (1), LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH
(1), PINE WARBLER (1 along the road to Black Oak Lake), and SUMMER TANAGER
(2).



At Turkey Run Wildlife Area in Lee Co. were RED-SHOULDERED HAWK (1),
YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT (1), and BLUE-WINGED WARBLER (1).



Recent arrivals seen today included EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE, RED-EYED VIREO, and
WOOD THRUSH. I saw 13 warbler species including NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH,
GOLDEN-WINGED, BLACK-AND-WHITE, TENNESSEE, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN.

Cedar River today








Ryan Shackleton <shack357...>: May 03 05:54PM -0400


Took my kayak down the Cedar today from Floyd to Charles City. Water level high but still easy going, no overly fast current. Spotted several sandpiper species that I couldn't quite nail down, a few green herons(first of the season) a first of year oriole and plenty of less noteworthy species. 
 
Also found another eagle nest along the route, that makes 3 eagle nests on this short run, with at least two being used. 
 
Most interestingly, I had a bat flying around about 40 feet above the river-at noon! Never seen that before.

Today I was birding at Cottonwood Rec area and heard the mockingbird song.
Growing up in Alabama, I am very familiar with its song, but have never
found one in Iowa. Loved seeing and hearing and it made me miss my mom!

Took my kayak down the Cedar today from Floyd to Charles City. Water level high but still easy going, no overly fast current. Spotted several sandpiper species that I couldn't quite nail down, a few green herons(first of the season) a first of year oriole and plenty of less noteworthy species. 
 
Also found another eagle nest along the route, that makes 3 eagle nests on this short run, with at least two being used. 
 
Most interestingly, I had a bat flying around about 40 feet above the river-at noon! Never seen that before.

Request for assistance – song recordings of migrating Mourning Warblers



I am posting my annual opportunity to participate in a Citizens Science
Project that involves recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs. I am
trying to determine the nature of migratory pathways taken by different
song populations of Mourning Warbler males during their spring migration. I
am continuing to collect your recordings and plot them on a map of North
America to determine if and where birds with different song types
(regiolects) separate from each other during spring migration. The most
current map of songs of migrants is at the web site below.



https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?hl=en&mid=1voXjBhvHZ0nwAv93_OBC_vCPuxQ&<ll...>%2C-85.09712735&z=5



All you need is a Smartphone and a singing Mourning Warbler. You can send
the recordings to my e-mail address (jpitocch AT anselm.edu). The web page
link below describes the project and how to make recordings on your
Smartphone in more detail.



https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/



This year is the 10th and final year of data collection. I very much
appreciate your past and present contributions to this Citizens Science
Project.

Subject: [ia-bird] Boone Co. shorebird day!!!
After lots of rain last night, I decided to drive to nearby Harrier Marsh
WMA and also look for flooded crop fields nearby. It was that latter that
paid off, because in a little more than an hour I found 12 species of
shorebirds (4 FOYs) on some of the flooded fields. I might have missed a
few others, but here's what I know was there :

*American Golden Plovers *(FOY)--4
*Dunlins *(FOY)--21 in less than 1/10th acre of water
*Killdeer*--several
*Solitary Sandpipers*--3
*Lesser Yellowlegs*--est. 35
*Greater Yellowlegs*--est. 20
*White-rumped Sandpipers *(FOY)--about 5 flying away with some yellowlegs
*Pectoral Sandpipers*--7
*Least Sandpipers*--10
*Semipalmated Sandpipers*--14
*Long-billed Dowitchers*--8
*Sanderlings *(FOY)--2

Lark sparrows (3) - 3 Kestrels - 2 turkeys on a date
FOY Harris Sparrow - Eastern Kingbird - Savannah sparrow

Eight brown thrashers - most in pairs, but a couple of singles

And, a loose flock of 2 dozen+ female red-wing blackbirds in corn stubble
with a couple males. I've never encountered this many females in one
vicinity together - 11 of them were in the same bushy little tree, hanging
out.

Subject: [ia-bird] Yellow Rail & Other Sightings in NW Iowa
Hello Birders,   I saw a Yellow Rail yesterday (5/1) while on a prescribed burn at Table Marsh near Hornick. It flushed up from the flame front and gave me brief but satisfactory views of its white secondaries. I had an American Bittern take off from the unit as well and I saw what I believe to be a Meadow Jumping Mouse hopping across the fire break to get to a safe location.   A Pileated Woodpecker was calling at Joy Hollow in Plymouth County on 4/30 and a large number of hawks were migrating over after the morning rainfall including Broad-winged, Swainson's, Red-tailed, Cooper's, Sharp-shinned, American Kestrel, Osprey, and Bald Eagle. Broad-winged Hawks were by far the most abundant with approximately 500-600 birds in a 2 hour span. Later in the day a flock of close to 1000 noisy Franklin's Gulls flew over Broken Kettle Grasslands.  Good Birding,

Hi All,
Ledges State Park in Boone, IA was very birdy this morning. I got 58
species in just over an hour. I was down by the boat launch, at the end of
the canyon drive road, and on the Lost Lake trail. Some of my FOY species
included indigo bunting, great-crested flycatcher, yellow warbler,
golden-winged warbler, blue-headed vireo, yellow-throated vireo, and gray
catbird.

Happy birding!

setting up for nesting around and about. Also missing Catbirds. Wonder
where they are or is it still early for them? Vultures in the barn too. All

There is something to consider locally in this article.

attracting more diverse members, and age is definitely one of the factors,”
said Jennifer Wilson-Pines, conservation chair of the North Shore Audubon

Subject: [ia-bird] Great birding today from Ogden to Saylorville
With nearly perfect weather early today, I headed down to Saylorville Lake,
then back, picking up 79 species in about 6 hours, including 14 FOY. Just
some of my FOYs included the following:

*Loggerhead Shrike*--near R22 bridge across Beaver Creek in NE Dallas Co.
*Cattle Egrets*--those previously reported by others at the Brenton cattle
ranch
*Yellow Warbler*--at Jester Park's N. end lake access
*Great Crested Flycatcher*--singing at Jester Park
*Harris' Sparrows*--Jester Park
*Cliff Swallows*--circling over Lincoln Access to Saylorville
*Wood Thrush*--near far north access to Big Creek WMA off NW 150thAve.
*Black-and-white Warbler*--same location as the Wood Thrush
*Indigo Bunting*--at Ledges SP boat access to Des Moines River
*Green Heron*--in recently reflooded marsh by N. entrance to Ledges SP

It was such a great day that I'll bet this coming weekend's IOU field trips
at Clinton should be incredibly good.

TONs of blue jays (not surprising with all the white oak trees) and usual

Subject: [ia-bird] NO SIGHTING - IOU Membership
While working on another project, I just discovered that 25% of IOU members
have not renewed for 2024 which was due 1/1/2024. Some of you have
registered for the meeting this weekend in Clinton, so it may have been an
oversight. You can easily find your membership status by logging into
https://iowabirds.org/ and selecting "My Web Account" from the menu. If it
does not read "Your IOU membership is current through 2024", please take
care of things now and save the hassle of removal and reinstatement.

Subject: [ia-bird] sighting, sort of, but not in Iowa and not a living bird
Thought y'all would get a kick out of this.

I've been in Australia for the past couple of weeks. The primary reason was a conference in Darwin and research at a museum in Alice Springs, though I've certainly been birding.

The attached photo shows the thigh bones (femora) of two flightless birds. On the right is the femur of a modern emu. On the left is the femur of Dromornis stirtoni, an extinct bird from the Miocene at a site called Alcoota.

(I don't know the precise age off hand, but it's mid-Miocene, which would put it between around 10 to 15 million years in age.)

Believe it or not, Dromornis is not a ratite. In fact, it appears to have been an anseriform of some sort.

Today, while watching my son wading a creek at Backbone S.P. , I was
shocked to hear what I recognized to be a FISH CROW. It just seemingly came
out of nowhere, and was chasing a Juv. B. Eagle. It was very agitated and
giving its nasal "caw" repeatedly. I watched it for about a minute or so
before it gave up the chase and disappeared towards the Maquoketa River. I
have seen and heard many in Florida, but this quite a surprise!

Attention Photographers - Iowa Bird Life needs a person willing to
contribute a few hours per year preparing photos for publication in our
journal. Many thanks to Larry Dau who has been the photo editor for several
years but is now passing the torch. I know there are a lot of people out
there who take and process their own photos so am hoping someone will
volunteer a little time for the greater good. Attached is a short

Subject: [ia-bird] Great open country birding in west-central Iowa
Birding mostly through Greene, Guthrie & Dallas Counties today turned up a
lot of open country and wetland birds. Dunbar Slough was loaded with
*Yellow-headed Blackbirds
*(FOY)*. *On the east side of Dunbar Slough's *Hunter* Tract were a
few *Savannah
Sparrows* (FOY) and several* Vesper Sparrows. *Best found there was a*
Buff-breasted Sandpiper* (FOY) in pasture near the road.

Approaching Bay's Branch central area from Hwy 4 later, the *Osprey* nest I
saw a couple of weeks ago was busy--mom on the nest and dad bringing her a
fish to eat. Then, along a road near Kuehn Conservation Area in SW Dallas
County, I found *Lark Sparrows* (FOY). With lots of other things sited in
mostly open landscapes, I ended up with my biggest 1-day species list of
the year.

Subject: [ia-bird] Des Moines County Leucistic Rose Breasted Grossbeak
Found today (April 24, 2024) at our feeder. I’m guessing it’s a female Rose-breasted grosbeak based on the company it was keeping with a few other normal females. When seen next to Goldfinches at the feeder, it was noticeably larger, so I’m ruling that out.

Subject: [ia-bird] shorebirds
Finally, shorebirds are moving into the area. There were ten species seen
in various ponds.



At the landfill west of Mason City the shorebirds couldn't stay still. So,
there were 45 L B Dowitchers or more, and 5 or 6 or more American Golden
Plover, but they flew.



At McIntosh State Park, the beach area still had the Willet from Sunday,
along with one Sanderling and one Caspian Tern along with some Forester
Terns.



Another pond had twenty Dunlin, at least, and Pecs. Snipe were about and
Yellowlegs.



It was tooooo windy to walk in the woods.

Down Xavier Ave this morning and Marsha spotted a group of what look like Wilson's Snipe over in the water near the trestle. I counted 22 of them, which seems like a large group for those. They just wandered up and down the edge of the water mostly nose down. Could be something else, I'm sure.

Then over at Marsh Farms Wetland, there was a flock of what I think are Franklin's Gulls, based on the black head, white eye crescents and black and white wing tips along with a couple of Trumpeter Swans.

Enclosing the best photos I got in case anyone wants to affirm or suggest other possibilities.

Driving home from Cherokee yesterday, I saw a big flock of birds (100+)
following a farmer tilling the fields - gulls. I was so disappointed; to
me, they all look the same: gray & white. But I pulled over & my little
binoculars pulled in enough detail to see gray & white, black heads, & ...
pink?!? Merlin said Franklin Gulls - they were physically beautiful with
their pink tummies, but also beautiful in flight. Excited to actually
figure out a specific gull!

Subject: [ia-bird] Dark morph of Broad-winged Hawk, Story County
Early this afternoon I saw a dark morph of a Broad-winged Hawk flying over
the River Valley park in Ames. Quite a striking, beautiful bird.

Subject: [ia-bird] American Coot foraging and feeding on Zebra Mussel.
What do Coot eat nowadays before the vegetation emerges
[image: Coot with zebra mussles Storm Lake April 20 2024 178.JPG]
?
It appears to be Zebra Mussel.
I kept seeing Coot bringing small black balls of something to shore and
pecking on it. Then I zoomed in and got a photo to find out it is a small
ball of Zebra Mussels it had dove down and broke loose.
