Does anyone know what happens to the non-wild Mute Swans in the Omaha area in winter? I'm thinking of the Omaha swans at Heartland of America Park, Zorinsky Lake, Regency, as well as Yanney Lake in Kearney.

I assume they're collected up and kept indoors, but if anyone can provide info, I'd really appreciate it.

Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Pacific Loon - Cunningham
I hit Cunningham Lake late this afternoon (October 21). I initially drove in at Entrance 3 off 96th Street not far north of State Street; I set up my scope by the fishing area, then carried it east to the end of a point from which I could see up to the Highway 36 bridge. I found a single Common Loon, but no Pacific. I also found a Great Egret there.

I then drove in Entrance 2 from State Street, which took me to a parking lot near the west end of the dam. I set up my scope in that lot and scanned the portion of the lake that I could see from there, but saw no loons.


Earlier in the day, I'd worked Nemaha County. At Aspinwall Bend WMA, near the Nemaha town sewage ponds, I found two immature Black-crowned Night-Herons. I saw the birds only in the air, at a distance of about a quarter-mile. The lack of contrast between the remiges and the upperwing linings allowed me to rule out American Bittern with confidence; however, I relied pretty heavily on the range map to conclude that they were Black-crowns rather than Yellow-crowns.

I'm wondering if some of the western grebes being reported in eastern NE
and western IA are winter plummage horned or eared grebes. I birded Lake
Manawa early last week with Elliott Bedows and Phil Swanson, after much
debate about birds we thought were western or clarks grebes we moved around
the lake to observe from different locations with a scope and sibleys app
and decided they were horned and eared grebes.

Observed the Pacific Loon and a Common Loon this morning from entrance 3 on
the west side of the lake. Arrived with Phil Swanson about 7am. Went down
to covered pavillion on NE corner of area and eventually found Pacific with
scope north near hwy 36. It eventually flew south and landed straight out
from us closer to the east side of the lake, pretty far away. We also saw a
common loon closer to the dam. The pacific loon kept moving toward the dam
as the morning progressed. We moved to a covered birding dock on the north
side of the same area. From here we saw the Pacific loon much closer. We
thought there might be 2 Pacific loons but need to go through our photos.
One appeared much darker on back of head and neck while the other was
grayer. Pacific was smaller than the common we saw and the common had a
bump toward front of the while the Pacifics head was smooth.

Headed to Lake Manawa in hopes of seeing the Red-necked Grebe rNOT seen)
but ran into the Padelfords which was very nice. Had an immature Surf
Scoter as a surprise. Did not see the post about the Pacific Loon as I
passed not far away on my way for a little Washington county birding. 10
new tics but overall the birding was very difficult. Hit all of the Boyer
Chute areas as well as a number of other place. NOT one duck species
despite the many flooded areas. On water species were Pied-billed Grebe
and Canada Goose.

Seems very strange as large number of ducks are being seen in central and
eastern Iowa and further west in Nebraska. Just not much along the
Missouri lately. Any thoughts on this?

Maybe you got some answers already. It certainly is not easy to lug a scope around.

From the Saline Wetland side you can walk over and there is one empty lot. At the beginning of that Pelican bay end there is a bit of a gap where the last subdivision starts.


There used to be one empty lot at Pier 2. Have not been there for a year.


It does not seem to say private drive so presumably we can stand on sidewalks. I've gone around it by bike and the North half offers no views other than the NE corner with the Pelican bay sign.


Not much help.

Subject: [NEBirds] Three scoter species at Capitol Beach Lake on October 17.
Hi!
   Just a quick note to say I found 3 black scoters, 4 surf scoters and 1 white-winged scoter at Capitol Beach Lake on October 17, 2018.  I observed them from the NE side of the lake using a scope.  They were too far away to photograph.  Distortion was minimal on 60X, yet I was able to see enough details to identify.  They were in close proximity to each other and did not mingle, except for the white-winged scoter hanging out with the 4 surf scoters for part of the time before separating.  Comparison to each other and at times scaup and ruddy ducks, size and head shape and patterns helped me identify them.
   For more details check my ebird report and what else I found at Capitol Beach Lake and at Lincoln Saline Wetlands Nature Park.
Good birding!

Andrea Wiggins:

Had a lovely day for birding at Niobrara State Park and covered the entire northern border of the park along the Missouri River backwaters.

Most unusual was a Yellow-billed cuckoo (images attached to eBird checklist) who posed for several minutes as I made clumsy attempts at photos through bins with my iPhone. Other highlights included a group of American Avocets, a Western Grebe, and the relatively less common Red-breasted nuthatch and Eastern towhee.

Good birding,

Hi Paul,

That's great! Today, 2 of the 3 that were here yesterday left...the female left about 8 am and one of the juvie males that was here over a week finally left just before 10 am. His last feeding was over 10 minutes! We named him Mr Beaker because of the bump/marking on his beak...probably due to an injury. The other juvie male that arrived yesterday afternoon is still here. We have videos and pics. His last feeding was just after 6:30 pm.
We also had a newbie today...a juvie male that fed just once and sat in one of our gardens briefly before continuing on his journey. So overall, we had 4 hummingbirds today total and only one remains. My guess is that with high temps tomorrow in the low 60's, he won't be here much longer than a few long feedings in the am. I will be surprised if he stays though. Sometimes they need the extra rest before moving on no matter how good the weather is even with a gentle tail wind in their favor.
This time of year is so bitter sweet. We will miss them til early May.

Hello, all,

Today a couple of my coworkers and I were doing some reconnaissance of a prescribed burn unit on private land near Wynot in Cedar County. Migrants were everywhere, but unfortunately we didn't have a lot of time to stop and search through the flocks. Ruby-crowned Kinglets were especially abundant. I saw three species of warblers - lots of Yellow-rumped, one Orange-crowned, and one Palm.

Saturday there was one Nashville Warbler among the usual suspects along the Cowboy Trail in Norfolk, and today there was a Hermit Thrush hanging out near the Game and Parks office in Norfolk. Flocks of Snow Geese and Greater White-fronted Geese have also been flying overhead the last few days.

Enjoy the nice weather predicted for this week!

Hi all:

If anyone know who is coordinating the Lincoln Christmas Bird Count this year, I would appreciate knowing that information. Please contact me off list if you are that person or know who the person might be. Thanks.

Since I'm here, I'll mention that I found two Surf Scoters, 51 American Avocets, a Great Egret and a lot of unhappy Tree and Barn Swallows at Branched Oak Lake this morning.

Yesterday, Melissa Panella and I intercepted a Golden Eagle along Highway 92 in Merrick County (photos: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49186336).

On Saturday, I found a Hermit Thrush near Whitney, Dawes Co and a Fox Sparrow at Whitney Lake (photos: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49157281) Also on Saturday, I found a White-throated Sparrow and Hermit Thrush in Sowbelly Canyon (photos of the WTSP: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49163628). On Friday, Melissa and I found a White-throated Sparrow at Chadron State Park. I/we also found Harris's Sparrow at multiple location in Dawes and Sioux Co, including 23 at Whitney Lake.

Piles of birds were migrating Saturday afternoon and Sunday. It was impressive.

Good birding!

Hello All,


It has been ages since I have posted here. I thought this would be pretty interesting news so I thought I'd share. My husband Ron and I have been documenting hummingbirds during the Spring & Fall migration periods since 2008.
So far the latest we ever had a RT hummingbird in the Fall was 10/17/2010. Since today is 10/14/2018, and close to rivaling the 2010 record, we have in the meantime set another new record for our location/residence. Today we have 3 hummingbirds...2 juvie males and 1 female! So, the most hummingbirds on any day this late during the Fall.
Below is a couple of links to one of the pics we took today of one of the juvie males during the snowstorm. I didn't know which link/addy to post so I added both.

Subject: RE: [NEBirds] Banded Pigeon
If the band can be read, which usually requires capturing the bird, the owner can often be found at www.pigeon.org<http://www.pigeon.org> and hitting the "report a bird" page. Not all fanciers are part of the American Racing Pigeon Union. If the band does not have an "AU" on it, it usually means a dead end. I've contacted owners on occasions when I have received a report from the public and they can have mixed reactions. Sometimes they are interested and other times not so much. On a sidebar, I found a pigeon leg with a band in the Peregrine Falcon nest box at the Capitol that originated from Oklahoma a few years ago.

Subject: [NEBirds] White-winged and Black Scoter - Lewis and Clark Lake 10/13
Yesterday (10/13), my father, brother, and I headed up to Lewis and Clark Lake to look for migrant waterbirds. While we couldn't find too many , we found numerous scoters that made up for it. We were able to find 4 White-winged Scoters and 3 Black Scoters. We spotted the 4 White-winged Scoters as they flew by us and went over the dam, heading southeast when we were scoping the lake from the southern most pullout in the morning. Also present at that time were 2 Common Loons and 2 distant loons. The distant loons may have been Red-throated Loons (based on structure) but due to distance and poor views of them, it wasn't possible to identify them for sure. We left the dam and checked other access points along the south shore of the lake. These access points only had the usual October migrants and nothing worth noting. We then scoped the lake from the dam to end our day. The first birds we got our scope on turned out to be a pair of Black Scoters. These scoters were along the dam about halfway between the southern most pullout and the middle pullout. During our time there, they stayed in roughly the same area and allowed for a somewhat close approach. Besides these two, we had a third Black Scoter fly by us and head over the dam, similar to what the White-winged Scoters had done earlier in the day. Nothing else of note was seen while scoping.

Just had a Red-breasted Nuthatch at my feeder. First one in three or four years. Don't normally get them here. Still have a hummer coming to the feeder. Looks like a Juvi RT.

Not in ebird.

Subject: [NEBirds] Wachiska Audubon field trip to Little Salt Fork Marsh - Sat. 10/13
Are you a longtime local resident who's explored just about every nook and cranny of the county? If you haven't yet seen the unique species that inhabit Nebraska's Eastern saline wetlands, you might be pleasantly surprised to encounter something you haven't found before. Sea blite, inland salt grass, and the state listed endangered saltwort resemble plants that belong next to an ocean but instead thrive in the salty basins of Lancaster and Saunders counties. Saline specialties aren't limited to flora though, and stands of salt-tolerant narrow-leaved cattails provide a favorite haunt for migrant sparrows like Nelson's, LeConte's, Swamp, and Savannah. More than three-quarters of these rare wetlands have been decimated by a long history of draining and development, and surviving remnants are now threatened by degradation from invasive species.



We'll meet at 8:00 a.m. Saturday, October 13 at Little Salt Fork Marsh Preserve located 5 miles north of Lincoln. The parking lot is a half-mile west of the intersection of N. 1st Street and Raymond Road. Full mosquito armor such as repellent and impenetrable clothing is highly recommended. Other recommended items are water bottle and binoculars if you have them. Waterproof footwear is not required but will afford maximum sparrow-viewing opportunities. There is no fee and the public is welcome.

After no birds whatsoever in the yard on Tuesday I had 3 yesterday and today a whopping 11 species. What a difference from a couple weeks ago. I did have a single female/immature Dickcissel this morning. This afternoon when the sun came out the Screech Owl appeared in the entrance to the nest box.. First I’ve seen of him since last winter.

Subject: [NEBirds] Probable MacGillivray's Warbler- Mercer Woods- 10/10
  Yesterday late morning, shortly before high-end Cat 4 Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle, I stumbled across a rather large, bright warbler working some foliage low near the mansion.
  I was able to obtain a couple rather blurry photos of the bird.  This was mostly due to its skulking behavior, and never knowing when the warbler was going to pop out of the foliage for a few seconds.
  Field marks observed included...
-Large, bulky ground-skulking warbler with a long tail.
- Light gray hood with paler chin region.  Defined eye arcs, but ringed slightly around edges.  This suggested hatch-year or female.
- Tail projection extended far beyond undertail coverts.
- Bright yellow underparts contrasting with yellow-greenish mantle.
- Responded to MacGillivray's chip note playback (which is how I was able to obtain photos).
- A couple chips heard from the bird resembled Common Yellowthroat, but without the "burry echo quality" of aforementioned species.

  I do know that Mourning Warbler has been recorded late, but I wonder is there any photographic evidence of these October record Mournings?  I also know that especially during the fall that it can be a difficult ID, especially when considering eastern vagrants.  
The eBird report with (blurry) photos can be viewed here  https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49099234  
If anyone has any suggestions, I would enjoy hearing them.
Good birding.

Subject: [NEBirds] Around Lincoln...not much
Made some rounds yesterday, and there really was not much in the lakes yet. Oak Lake had a few cormorants and Franklin's gulls. Was not able to get to Lincoln Saline Wetland as Westgate Blvd was closed off. Looked rather temporary. I only check Capitol Beach lake from that area usually, so skipped that too.


On to Pawnee lake, found one bald eagle, not much on the lake. From the West side decided to go to Twin Lakes to add a few birds for Seward county ( I never get to the county in the darker half of the year). The lakes had a few pelicans. Closes off about Oct 15.


Conestoga lake has a bit more water, shovelers and coots. Construction still blocks the entrance from North side. No lists made for Lancaster county that day.


All in all, very few sparrows. It was a bit windy. With the lists people are posting, not much new to chase today. I will go to Marsh Wren today to see a few more sparrows, though the year list has most of them that I usually find, from spring. The roads were a bit muddy from all that rain, brought several pounds of Nebraska home in the wheel wells yesterday.


It's not raining, so out we go. Wachiska outing will be Saturday, Little Salt Fork Marsh.

Don,I'm glad you got to see the Anna's.  Yes, Terese was so excited to have the Anna's coming in so regularly.  Unfortunately, I was in NE the week before to visit, but missed it.  It is great she will be doing feeder watching for the Ames count.  We go birding as much as we can when I come home.  In July, we did go to Hitchcock, and we were going to try to go in September, but circumstances did not allow the time.  Terese told me the names of the folks that had signed the page, and it is fun to hear familiar names, some of whom I have met in person, some online, and some just reading their posts.
Stay warm, it is snowing here.Diane

We had no idea at the time that Mrs. Hill is your sister. She is very gracious for letting a bunch of strange birders hang around her back yard. Gary Roberts from Fremont visited with her when was there, and it sounds like we have acquired a feeder watcher for the Ames CBC as your sister lives in the southeast part of the circle.

Since it's still to wet to harvest, I went to Hitchcock today. It was a little chilly on the tower but there were enough birds to keep us from getting too cold, though there were zero visitors on the tower today. If you and/or your sister ever visit, make sure that you wear lots of clothes.

Also, the property owner had not observed the bird all day and left shortly after I arrived. She said she would keep an eye out tomorrow and let Mark know if it returns.

In the Panhandle, working on county lists. Yesterday morning (October 7), I found a single White-throated Sparrow in Wright's Gap in Banner County. This morning, I hit a stretch of county road 14 that diagonals northwest from the triple-point of Banner, Kimball, and Cheyenne counties; there, I found a single Harris's Sparrow in a flock of a dozen adult and immature White-crowns, and a single Lesser Goldfinch in a flock of 10-20 American Goldfinches.


Had a bit of snow mixed with the light rain this morning in Kimball. Getting to be that time of year...

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: Feeders for hummingbirds
Leave them up as long as you want. Birds don't read books telling then when and where to migrate. Just because somebody else believes hummingbird feeders should be taken down earlier doesn't mean you have to, there your feeders, do what you like. Anna's Hummingbirds seem to like to wander in the fall and they may show up late just about anywhere these days. If there are no flowers in bloom, they need a source of food.

Last year I was too lazy to take my feeders down and we got an Anna's Humming bird on November 19th, and it was a good thing I still had the feeders up. It was starving. I stood 3 feet away from it and watched it feed for about a half hour. (I was getting ready to put fresh food in the feeder shortly after my son spotted the Anna's near the feeder few minutes earlier. As I was reaching up for the feeder, the Anna's came in and started to feed with me right there. It was fun to watch it up that close.)


Obviously, if your hummingbird food is frozen solid, it's probably time to bring the feeders in. (Our Anna's stay until December 9th. I would bring the feeder in at night and put it back out early, before sunrise. I also made a heated enclosure for it to.) Other people have had hummingbirds later than December.

We still have one Ruby-throated Hummingbird that only comes to the feeders late in the afternoon and evening. It has a distinct band of dark feathers across the upper breast area and has been in our area for almost a month. We still have lots of Cana Lillies in bloom so I assume it is spending most of the day feeding from flowers and eating small insects. Yesterday I observed for about 45 minutes perched about a foot off the ground in my back garden.

  Yesterday 10/05) on Mercer Woods property three (3) HERMIT THRUSH were observed.  This comes only a couple days after a SWAINSON'S THRUSH sighting on October 3rd.  An OVEBIRD was also spotted skulking through the property that afternoon.
  On Thursday (10/04) a l V formation of up to eight (8) GREAT EGRETS was sighted above Indian Creek Nursery around 6:00pm.  A rather strange occurrence for Midtown Omaha.
  The first YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER of the season was observed on September 29th at Mercer Woods.  
  As for Hummingbirds, which everyone appears to be obsessed with at this point; no hummers have been observed on the property since the last week of September.  

Good birding.

I had a Hummingbird visit my yard today. Unfortunately, my feeder was
all cleaned up and put away. I got it out again and hopefully it will
return for a drink.

Also am seeing lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the Cedar trees and by
the pond in my yard.

I had a great view of a very drab Blue-headed Vireo yesterday as it sat,
full view, and beat up an spider egg case (?)...but I had left the camera
back at the cabin.
Some other birds observed: a small group (5-6) Yellow-rump warblers,
several Orange-crowned warblers, 1 Yellow warbler, Lincoln's sparrows,
White-throated sparrows, Harris's sparrows, and one unidentified thrush -
too brief a glimpse.

Subject: [NEBirds] Introduction + sparrow migration in the northeast
Hello, NE Birders!

I am a Nebraska native who recently returned to the state after about a decade away. I grew up in Antelope County, , but my wife and I recently moved to Norfolk (Madison County), where I am a biologist for the Game and Parks Commission. I am very happy to be back home!

Today was a big sparrow day in the northeast part of the state. In little brush pile near the office in Norfolk, I saw a nice variety of species, including a Fox Sparrow (FOS), Dark-eyed Juncos (FOS), White-throated Sparrows (FOS), Lincoln's Sparrows, Harris's Sparrows, and Song Sparrows. While driving on country roads between Norfolk and Battle Creek, I observed several small groups of Savannah and Vesper Sparrows. But the best spot of the day was a small CRP field southwest of Battle Creek. This first-year "weedy" CRP field and the plum thicket in the adjacent ditch were crawling with sparrows (and one Orange-crowned Warbler). Here I observed most of the species mentioned earlier as well as a Clay-colored Sparrow (FOS), White-crowned Sparrows (FOS), Field Sparrows, and the bird of the day, a FOS LeConte's Sparrow! It definitely was a good reminder of the importance of CRP to both resident and migratory birds - hopefully the program will get back up and running soon.

I look forward to meeting more of my fellow NE birders in the field! Have a great weekend!

NEbirders:

Yes it is early, but calendars fill up quickly. The dates for the Harlan County and Lower Platte River Christmas Bird Counts (CBC) will be as follows:

Harlan County CBC: Friday, 14 December with a weather date of Tuesday, 18 December.
Lower Platte River CBC: Thursday, 27 December with a weather date of 28, 29 or 30 December.

Last year, the Harlan County CBC tallied 96 species and gave the Lake McConaughy all it could handle to maintain its spot as the top CBC (based on total # of species) in the state. I hope we can make another strong push this year. The inaugural Lower Platte River CBC tallied 71 species in bitterly cold weather earlier this year. Please contact me off list if you are interested in participating in either CBC. Thanks.

Based on information provided in the Birds of Nebraska – Online’s species account for Ruby-throated Hummingbird (https://birds.outdoornebraska.gov/ruby-throated-hummingbird/), about another week would need to go by for a Ruby-throated Hummingbird observation to be considered exceptionally late. I’m not quibbling with the point that the majority of birds have moved south of us and that a Ruby-throated Hummingbird hanging out at a feeder here in the north county is still notable, but the question was hanging out there.

Haven’t had hummingbirds for about ten days but today we’ve had one drinking. On Tuesday we walked near the golf course on 33rd north of South Street. We had 14 Flickers fly across the street. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that many in a group.

About two weeks ago, we had a Wilson’s and a Nashville’s warbler as well as a catbird and Swainson’s thrush.

Lisa and butterfly enthusiasts,

Bordered Patch butterflies have been seen the last couple of weeks in many locations in this area. Today we saw one in our yard, one at Fontenelle Forest Nature Center and two at Lauritzen Gardens. The last three years (2016-18) they have been seen in this area in late September/early October after periods of strong southerly winds.

Hi all,

As you know, Joel Jorgensen and I (by far mostly Joel) have been gathering up pics to use in BONO (https://www.birdsofnebraska.org).

Does anyone have reasonable quality pics taken in Nebraska of Blue-winged Warbler, Chuck-will's-widow, or MacGillivray's Warbler?

If so, please email me off-line.

Thank you!

Hello Nebraska birders,

ebird

Sunday, September 30, Robin and I looked for birds in northeastern
Webster Country. I will show you a list of highlights followed by
details.

Ruddy Duck (1)
Swainson’s Hawk (25)
Eastern Screech-Owl (1)
American Crows (about 100)
Dickcisssel (1 female)

In northeastern Webster Country about two and a half miles northeast
of Liberty Cove we saw a female Dickcissel. The Dickcissel had a gray
bill and a yellow breast. At Liberty Cove we saw about a hundred
American Crows, a winter male Ruddy Duck and Robin heard an Eastern
Screech Owl. On our way home we saw twenty five Swainson’s Hawks
swirling above the Franklin/Kearney County line northwest of Campbell.

May your birds be lifers and your troubles temporary.

good birding and goodbye,

Lanny

Hello everyone,

This morning (and into the early afternoon), Mary Clausenand I hiked the entire nine [9] mile loop around Zorinski Lk in DouglasCo.  The best finding was a Black-legged Kittiwake (see below forthe documentation) but there were a number of other notable sightings aswell.  In total, 45 species were seen including:

Canada Gs. [X]; a Mute Swanof questionable origin; Wood Duck [1]; Mallard [X]; DC’dCormorant [300]; Amer Wht Pelican [250]; Grt. Blue Heron [6];Grt. Egret [10]; Cattle Egret [1]; Snowy Egret [1]; Broad-wingedHk [1]; RT’d Hk [1]; Grt. Yellowlegs [1]; Willet[1]; Blk-legged Kittiwake [1]**; Franklin’s Gull [250+];Ring-billed Gull [3]; Herring Gull [1]; Mourning Dove [X];Belted Kingfisher [1-2]; Red-bellied Woodpecker [X]; DownyWoodpecker [X]; Hairy Woodpecker [2]; No. Flicker [X]; Blue-headedVireo [1]; Blue Jay [X]; Amer.

**= Gull sp. that was larger than theFranklin’s Gulls but slightly smaller than the Ring-billed Gulls that itwas flying with.  The wing tips were entirely black (i.e. with no whitemirrors) and the all yellow bill was shorter than that of the RB’d and Franklin’sGulls.  The Gull had a black ear ‘smudge’ and exhibited a morebuoyant flight than did the FrGu’s or the RBGu that were inproximity.  The leg color could not be seen as the bird remained in flightover the Lk for the entire time (several minutes) that it was being observedbefore flying off over the Lk.

Nebraska birders,
Lanny and I had three hummingbirds in our yard north of Minden until
September 23.
We have not seen one since.

I’ve got one at my house here in Hastings tonight, too, but this is
my first year to put out feeders for them, so I wasn’t sure what to
expect for late date.

Subject: [NEBirds] Zorinski Lk, Douglas Co.
Hello everyone,

This morning (and into the early afternoon), Mary Clausen and I hiked the
entire nine [9] mile loop around Zorinski Lk in Douglas Co. The best
finding was a Black-legged Kittiwake (see below for the documentation) but
there were a number of other notable sightings as well. In total, 45
species were seen including:

Canada Gs. [X]; a Mute Swan of questionable origin; Wood Duck [1]; Mallard
[X]; DC'd Cormorant [300]; Amer Wht Pelican [250]; Grt. Blue Heron [6]; Grt.
Egret [10]; Cattle Egret [1]; Snowy Egret [1]; Broad-winged Hk [1]; RT'd Hk
[1]; Grt. Yellowlegs [1]; Willet [1]; Blk-legged Kittiwake [1]**; Franklin's
Gull [250+]; Ring-billed Gull [3]; Herring Gull [1]; Mourning Dove [X];
Belted Kingfisher [1-2]; Red-bellied Woodpecker [X]; Downy Woodpecker [X];
Hairy Woodpecker [2]; No. Flicker [X]; Blue-headed Vireo [1]; Blue Jay [X];
Amer. Crow [X]; Tree Swallow [8]; Barn Swallow [100+]; Blk-capped Chickadee
[X]; Wht-brst'd Nuthatch [X]; RC'd Kinglet [6]; Amer. Robin [X]; Gray
Catbird [2]; Brn Thrasher [1]; Org-crowned Warbler [2]; Com. Yellowtht [1];
YR'd Warbler [50]; Vesper Sparrow [1]; Song Sparrow [2]; Lincoln's Sparrow
[2]; No. Cardinal [X]; Com. Grackle [3]; Amer Goldfinch [X].

**= Gull sp. that was larger than the Franklin's Gulls but slightly smaller
than the Ring-billed Gulls that it was flying with. The wing tips were
entirely black (i.e. with no white mirrors) and the all yellow bill was
shorter than that of the RB'd and Franklin's Gulls. The Gull had a black
ear 'smudge' and exhibited a more buoyant flight than did the FrGu's or the
RBGu that were in proximity. The leg color could not be seen as the bird
remained in flight over the Lk for the entire time (several minutes) that it
was being observed before flying off over the Lk.

Elliott Bedows,

Bellevue, Sarpy Co.

Yesterday saw hawk and kingfisher battling at Heartwell park. Afterwards, hawk perched on railing of wooden bridge for some time. Totally white underneath.


Also want to report about 4 to 5 days ago had Carolina wren at feeder. They have been in our yard for about 3 to 4 years during the colder months. I had time to scrutinize it well and then happened to check my Sibley. Had been unaware of two races? of Carollinas till looking in the book. The bird in my yard was definitely of the Mexican type. Lots of black outlining the eye stripe and an area of black and off white little stippling on lower side of head neck region.

Subject: [NEBirds] Garden County
Out in the Panhandle, trying to improve some county lists. Spent most of today (October 1) working Garden County.


The best bird of the day was a MacGillivray's Warbler at Lisco. The bird was in shrubs on the west side of the flooded ditch/pond on the west side of the road, about 1/8 mile north of the North Platte bridge. It was cooperative, moving enough to let me look at it from several different angles, and holding each pose long enough for me to see details. Bright yellow underparts; light to medium gray hood, including the throat and upper breast. Bright white crescents above and below the eye. Back and wings greenish; no wing-bars. The head wasn't as dark a gray as on Sibley's illustration of the male MacG's, but roughly the color of a Nashville's head; this leads me to suspect that the bird was a female or an immature.


Also found a Broad-winged Hawk in urban Lisco; a Harris's Sparrow at the Lisco crossing and another north-northeast of Oshkosh; a Hermit Thrush at the Lisco crossing; and both Audubon's and Myrtle warblers north-northwest of Crescent Lake NWR.


Getting away from ornithology, I found an elk on the south side of the river about 2 miles downstream from the Broadwater bridge. I saw it from the car in the pre-dawn twilight, and my initial response was "There's something odd about that cow". As I backed up for a better look, the creature jumped over a barbed-wire fence, which is definitely not cow behavior. It turned out to be an elk, with an impressive rack of antlers—as far as I know, the first elk that I've seen in Nebraska.

Hi Jer. Notice that the bird seed sale is rapidly approaching. If you have
any choices, I would not want my seed delivered on early Wed morning as I'm
working at KIOS from 6-9 am that day.

I will also be unavailable Thursday from 11am on through the afternoon.

I can change my KIOS date if necessary but not my Thurs. obligation.

Thanks, Kathleen

Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Black-billed Cuckoo Lake Wanahoo Sunday Sept 30 12:15pm

  While reviewing Robert Manning's short, though detailed video of the Lake Wanahoo Cuckoo, there were a few points in the video where red flags were raised.


1.)  The bill, though dark looks swollen and straight, and not small or curved.  Young Yellow-billed Cuckoos, depending on the individual can posses a dark bill for months.
2.)  The white on the throat and underparts is very clean and pristine..  There is a good shot of the throat, and even adults should show a bit of buff in this region.  I usually think of Black-billed being a bit more off-white.  Though even with the darker overcast conditions, this bird appears quite pale.
3.) The tips of the retricies are very large, bright white, and prominent as pointed out by Michael Willison.  Black-billed Cuckoos including adults should have more subdued smaller tail spots.
4.)  The field mark I first noticed took place in the last few seconds of the video. Though blurry, rufous can be observed in the underwing when the bird takes flight.  Black-billed Cuckoo should never show rufous in the underwing.
5.)  Calls of Black-billed and Yellow-billed can sometimes sound very similar.  A dry staccato-like call is a vocalization shared by both species.

  Yellow-billed Cuckoo especially young birds can be a tough ID.  I remember incidences similar to this on Illinois's IBET listserve regarding intense scrutiny and discussions involving fall photos of various cuckoos.
Just my two cents.
Good birding.

The call sounded very close to Sibly's 4th call down the list "call series...NY". I was really surprised and found it briefly and I got a short video of it. (I posted the video on my YouTube Channel, see the link below.) I had my camcorder ready to video tape the grebes to make sure they were horned. There were two juvenile grebes and one adult. The adult disappeared on me.




I got a very good look at the Cuckoo first, then I had trouble focusing my camcorder on it. It flew about 3 seconds later into a dense growth of young Willow Trees and other trees, about 20 yards east of the bridge. That dense growth of trees goes on for about 100 yards and is at least 50 yards wide.. There is a lot of water in the ditch just east of the bridge and I did not have high boots with me to try to relocate it. I walked up and down the road for about a half hour without seeing or hearing it again.




I posted a screen capture from the video in my NEBirds folder.

Subject: [NEBirds] Three Snowy Egrets at Memphis Lake
I oberved three Snowy Egrets at Memphis Lake this morning. I found the first on the north shore of the lake and the other two in the wetland area on the north end of the lake. When I left the lake around 11:20 am, all three were together in the wetland area. I also observed a group of about 125 Double-crested Cormorants feasting on shad mid lake. Around 10:30 am, they were joined by another large group of Cormorants that flew in from the northwest. I estimate there could have been 250 or more.


There was a large number of Killdeer - everywhere. I did not try to count them. I also saw one male Belted-Kingfisher and a few other regular birds.

Subject: [NEBirds] Black-billed Cuckoo - Lake Wanahoo 9/30
My father wanted me to post that he just heard and briefly saw a single Black-billed Cuckoo at Lake Wanahoo in Saunders County. He observed the cuckoo about 40 yards east of the bridge along County Road O at the sediment trap wetlands at the north end of the lake. He only saw it briefly, but was able to video record it as well. He's currently trying to refind it.


Besides the cuckoo, he also saw 3 Snowy Egrets at Memphis Lake in the WMA, just north lake.

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: Hawks and Migrating Birds
Reading about these large kettles of hawks makes me nostalgic for an event I witnessed that I thought no one would believe. Sitting outside in Fairmont a few days after hospitalization, I saw Swainson's hawks flying east over my house: I thought at first that it was, wow, more than a dozen. But they kept coming and coming, and finally I timed their passage. Seven minutes after I started the timer. I had never heard of "kettles" before and, In fact, I feared that I was perhaps hallucinating after anaesthesia.

What a wonderful experience. Hearing about those huge numbers, I can also recall the experience. Long may they fly our skies Juanita Rice, Lincoln/Fairmont

I dont know if it had any thing to do with the hawks but we did have a strong cold front go through the panhandleThursday night and it snowed in the Blackhills. That may have pushed the Swainsons eastward.

NEBirders:

Thanks to Gary for posting about the hawk flight yesterday while our internet connection was down. (Also to Jer for posting to the Hawkwatch group.)

Our farm is about 12 miles northwest of Fremont in Dodge Co. Starting at 3:30 pm we began seeing kettles of Broad-wings.  We went out on our deck and, looking east, started counting by ones, then by tens and eventually by hundreds.  They were still flying, but beginning to setting in trees, between 6 and 6:30. There were huge kettles, mingling with other kettles.  There were birds distant to the east and birds flying low right over us. 

By far most of the hawks we saw were Broad-wings.  Our total (conservative) estimate is 12,000. There were a few Swainson's mixed in, and at around 5:30 Don left to go a mile east to do a neighbor's chores.  There he saw thousands of Swainson's (conservative estimate 2000) sitting on the ground, on fenceposts and even in trees.  In one 10-minute period while I was fixing supper, I counted 700 Swainson's out the kitchen window.

In addition to the above 2 species, there were skeins of Franklin's Gulls moving through for the entire period.  Conservative estimate: 30,000.  There were also a few Turkey Vultures (40), two Northern Harriers, two Bald Eagles and 75 Double-crested Cormorants. Who knows what other birds we missed.

This morning we could see over 100 Broad-wings perching in trees in the pasture..  At around 9 am, they began to move out.
We are pondering why this all happened.  Why did such huge numbers of an eastern and a western species converge here?  Any theories?

Don took a few photos yesterday, which we will attempt to post.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
________________________________
Lower Platte North NRD to assume management of Lake Wanahoo recreation area

LINCOLN, Neb. - The Lower Platte North Natural Resources District (NRD) will assume full management of Lake Wanahoo and the surrounding recreation area beginning Jan. 1, 2019.

Since the area opened in 2012, the Lower Platte North NRD, which owns the property, has co-managed the area with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. That agreement will expire on Dec. 31. Transition of the area's operations will occur on Oct. 16.

Valid Nebraska Park Entry Permits will be honored at the area through Dec. 31, 2018.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, each vehicle entering the area will be required to have a new permit established by the Lower Platte North NRD. Fees for the new permit will be $15 annually for those who live or own property within the natural resources district and $25 for those who live outside of the district. A day pass will be available for $5 per vehicle. The pass will not be required at Czechland and Homestead recreation areas, which are also operated by the Lower Platte North NRD.

Camping rates at Lake Wanahoo will remain unchanged through Dec. 31, 2018. The NRD will begin accepting camping reservations beginning Jan. 1, 2019. For now, campsites are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Recreation facilities including boat access, the shower building, playgrounds, shelters, restrooms, RV hookups, picnic tables and the entry gatehouse will all remain at the area and will be maintained by the Lower Platte North NRD. Game and Parks will continue to manage the fishery and the mentored youth hunting program there. The lake will remain a 5 mph no-wake lake.

The area is 1,777 acres in size, including a 662-acre reservoir. The state recreation area encompasses the landscape and facilities south of the breakwater structure, including campgrounds, shelters, trails, playgrounds and restrooms.

For more information, contact the Lower Platte North NRD at 402-443-4675 or lpnnrd.org.

Marsha:

It is difficult to reach any sort of conclusion about the identity of your hawk based on the limited details, but assuming it was a buteo there are a limited number of likely possibilities. Western Red-tailed Hawks (Buteo jamaicensis calarus) are dark, but based on information summarized on the Birds of Nebraska - Online (https://birds.outdoornebraska.gov/red-tailed-hawk/), it is a tad early for birds of that race to be appearing in Nebraska (doesn't mean it is impossible). Harlan's Red-tailed Hawk (B. j. harlani) are also dark, but it is also on the early side of things for that race as well. A dark-morph Ferruginous Hawk would be unlikely in eastern Nebraska, especially in September. Swainson's Hawk migration peaks in late Sep and early Oct and dark-morphs of that species are occasionally observed in Nebraska (https://birds.outdoornebraska.gov/swainsons-hawk/). Thus, if I were betting, I would put my money on a dark-morph Swainson's Hawk.

The bird in the first photo on this checklist looks to me like a Myrtle Warbler rather than a Pine... I’m seeing a patch of brighter buff-yellow at the side of the breast, and the streaking also seems thin and sharp for Pine. The tail pattern may be a little odd for Myrtle, but I think only Yellow-rumped Warblers have the distinct yellow breast-side patches I’m seeing on this bird...

Subject: Re: RE: [NEBirds] Probable pine warbler
The bird in the first photo on this checklist looks to me like a Myrtle Warbler rather than a Pine... I’m seeing a patch of brighter buff-yellow at the side of the breast, and the streaking also seems thin and sharp for Pine. The tail pattern may be a little odd for Myrtle, but I think only Yellow-rumped Warblers have the distinct yellow breast-side patches I’m seeing on this bird...

photographer Tom Mangelsen, it is again airing on '60 Minutes' this
evening (Sept. 23rd). Includes

Still have 4 or 5 hummingbirds zipping around the garden. All are adult
females. Saw a flock of about a dozen night hawks Thursday morning. There
are sparrows everywhere. They're like herds of cattle grazing the yard. I
grow tithonia which draws monarchs like a magnet. Three days ago l found a
tagged one. First one I've seen. Reported it to Monarch Watch .
