Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Larks in the snow
Nebraska birders,
Speaking of larks, I saw several small flocks of around twenty Horned
Larks each this evening (02/21/19)
on my way home from work. Most of them were along Coal Chute Road
east of Kearney. Also alongthat stretch of road, I saw about ten
meadowlarks.

I have not seen nor heard any Sandhill Cranes yet this year but I did
see reports of large flocks notlong ago. Are the cranes still here or
did they go back south? The fields around Kearney arecompletely
covered with snow and the Platte River is mostly covered also.

I drove from Humphrey to Thedford along Hwy 91 and Hwy 2 today
(February 20). With last night's and this morning's several inches of
snow, I had hopes of adding Lapland Longspur to my lists for Loup,
Blaine, and Thomas counties.
All the way into Garfield County, my hopes continued high. There were
lots of flocks of small passerines assembled on the highway's cleared
shoulders, and while the desire to get to the Sandhills counties as
quickly as possible kept me from stopping to investigate them, their
behavior and appearance left me fairly confident that they were larks
and possibly longspurs.
Somewhere around Burwell, however, the flocks dried up. I didn't see
any along 91 between the Garfield-Loup line and Taylor. I drove
Highway 183 north from Taylor to several miles beyond the turnoff for
Bootleg Brewery, but only found a single lousy flock of eight or ten
larks, with no longspurs. I returned south to Taylor and drove to
Thedford, but didn't find any lark-longspur flocks at all.
Although larks use the Sandhills grasslands during the summer, I'm
starting to think that it doesn't provide good winter habitat for
them. It may be that they abandon the Sandhills for places with corn
and bean stubble for the winter, or that birds migrating southward opt
for crop stubble rather than grassland.

Subject: [NEBirds] Swamp Sparrow in Dodge Co.
NEBirders,

After months of mundane birds around the farm, we finally have something
worth posting about. This morning there has been a very hungry Swamp
Sparrow feeding on a mixture of sunflower and other seeds on the ground
along with the more usual feeder birds. Fine streaking on flanks and
breast, reddish wings and tail, white unstreaked throat, tiny yellow patch
at the base of the bill. Birds of Nebraska Online shows us *almost* in the
"Winter - rare, irregular or local" zone here in southeastern Dodge Co.

Also,last evening at around 6:15 we found a Short-eared Owl flying along a
road about 3 miles southwest of home.

And, as frosting on the cake, Don says he's hearing a Black-capped
Chickadee this morning. Not impressed? Well, they've been almost
completely missing from our yard for years, so now we get excited about
them.

No eBird.

Hello Birders...  I need help with a bird ID. I had a bird on my suet feeder that I had never seen before. It was about the size of a large sparrow, the head and upper body was the same color as a House Wren with a white eye strip. The bottom was white with a yellow tint at the top of the breast. I kept waiting for it to return so I could see other markings but it didn't. Thanks for any help.

I bet you're getting bombarded with emails, but it might be a Carolina Wren.

Subject: [NEBirds] RE: Skylarking of Horned Larks
Jim,

Birds of Nebraska- Online (BONO- link below) has this for Horned Lark:

Breeding Phenology:
Territorial birds: 16-17 Feb
Eggs: 4 May-3 Jul; two broods are usual; Antelope Co, Mar-Apr and Jun (Cary 1900).
Nestlings: 20 Mar (snow on ground, Ludlow 1935)
Fledglings: Mar-10 Jul

Based on that, now looks like the best time. They get going really early, as you can see by the early nestling and fledging dates.

Ross

Subject: [NEBirds] Skylarking of Horned Larks


Hello Nebraska Birders,

I am hoping to observe the skylarking of Horned Larks this year and would welcome advice to help me narrow down the time frame and identify potential search localities. From what I've read, Horned Larks can form pair bonds as early as early March so I assume this flight song is performed about the same time. Has anyone out there witnessed this?

Sincerely,

Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Larks in the snow
BillI've noticed that unless there is continuous snow cover, the larks, longspurs, and others don't have to forage along the road to find bare ground to feed on. When running my January census in the edge of the Sandhills, if the snow cover was not complete, I had trouble finding either larks or longspurs. If it was solid continuous snow cover, they were highly visible. Seemed  that if there was grass sticking above the snow, they didn't congregate along the road shoulders.

I was just out that way Monday and Tuesday and found only light snow from Rushville to Lakeside and home late Tuesday. It got dark (and snowy about at Hyannis. The rest of the trip was miserable.Better luck next time.Wayne MollhoffAshland, NE

Although larks use the Sandhills grasslands during the summer, I'm starting to think that it doesn't provide good winter habitat for them.  It may be that they abandon the Sandhills for places with corn and bean stubble for the winter, or that birds migrating southward opt for crop stubble rather than grassland.

One of my Backyard Bird Count lists I submitted included the following
on Feb. 17th:

- South of Bellevue where Harlan Lewis Road crosses over the Papillion
Creek I parked in the parking
lot for biker/hikes and walked up the slope to the top of the trail and
looked east and counted 150+
Canada Geese, 9 Trumpeter Swans, and several Common Goldeneye.

Subject: [NEBirds] Barred Owl and BB Magpies ranges
Bill Flack's recent report of Barred Owls at Oxford, Furnas County, provides an impetus to modify our range map for the species on the Bird of Nebraska - Online. Currently, we have the range extending to Harlan County in the Republican River drainage where the species has been found on recent Christmas Bird Counts. Bill's recent sighting, along with his Harry Strunk report, is pushing the range west. With that said, I think we have a lot of learn about how extensive the range of this species has become in the Republican River drainage. Keep on chugging, Bill.

At the other end of the spectrum is the Black-billed Magpie. Ross Silcock and I felt compelled to modify our original range map for this species as we believe the evidence shows the range has continued to erode in just the past year or two. We assembled a blog post about this subject on our site showing the change in the species' distribution since about 2000, before West Nile Virus hit. That post can be found here:

https://birds.outdoornebraska.gov/magpie-map-revision-tracking-the-decline/

The reason I wanted to mention it here was that we want our maps challenged.. If anyone has any recent sightings, or lack thereof, which indicates our current range map should be modified, we'd love to hear from you. Thanks..

Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Re: Red-shouldered Hawk- Lancaster Co.- 2/18
Hi!   
   I was out yesterday, February 18, 2019, looking for birds.  I found a juvenile red-shouldered hawk at Wagon Train SRA.  It was on the west side of the lake south of Martell Road and along S. 96th.  A few days earlier Justin Rink and company found one on the north side of the area along Roca Road.  At the east entrance I had a merlin.  Not much activity at Wagon Train; however, I did find my first bobwhites of the year with a count of 6 just west of the NW Martell entrance.
   I was looking for horned larks/longspurs in my travels from Wagon Train WNWward from Hickman to Pawnee Lake.  I have tried looking since January 1 with few sightings of horned larks and none for longspurs.  On February 18 I did find some small flocks of horned larks--one flock of 22 north of Wagon Train on S. 96th was in a soybean stubble--hard to spot (scope needed) from the road.  I found a flock of 19 on the road west of S. 68th on Martell Road.  I found very few meadowlarks (1 and 3 along the route I took).  Between SW 42 and SW 58 on Bennet Road were 14 horned larks on the road.  A group of 5 horned larks were in corn stubble along SW 140th between Denton and Old Cheney.  I found 2 horned larks on the road (Holdrege) south of Pawnee Lake.  I hit paydirt with 8 horned larks and 4 Lapland longspurs on a bare patch of field access road along NW 98 between Adams and Holdrege. They were hard to spot and a scope was needed.  Later on I found 6 horned larks and 2 Lapland longspurs in soy stubble along NW 126 between Fletcher and Superior.  Again they were in areas that had some exposed soil and were hard to see and where a scope was needed to see them.  One northern shrike was found along NW 140 between Adams and Superior.  The lake was entirely frozen over; however, on Valentine's Day, Pawnee Lake had two large holes open with 5 common mergansers.  I estimated that it was about 95% frozen at that visit. (I should mention that on the 14th I made a similar visit to Wagon Train to Pawnee Lake.  No horned larks were encountered.  All sightings on the 14th and on the 18th are to be put in ebird.  I tried over the weekend to enter the sightings for the 14th, but ebird was down and/or very sluggish.
   Good birding!

  It's probably the same one two people found at Wagon Train. Tom Gannon noted it first at Wagon Train. There seems to be about one per major wooded area in Lancaster county now. There was one Pioneers at Christmas count. I had one in Wilderness Park South of Pioneers on Jan 7.
Nice to have some reports, I've been out only a few times past two weeks. With few birds around in the wind, the waste of gas for the regular birds seems unwarranted. I still need owls.

Subject: [NEBirds] Barred Owls in Furnas County
At about 5:30 this afternoon (February 17), while birding the park in Oxford, I heard two Barred Owls calling. I couldn't see the birds, but they were presumably in the woods just south of the park, or those along the Republican.


This is the first time I've found Barred in Furnas County, and it's the farthest upstream that I've found them along the Republican itself. I heard them last year at Harry Strunk Lake; if they or their ancestors followed watercourses there, they must've gone up the Republican to its junction with Medicine Creek, then followed the creek up to the lake.



In other news from south-central and southwestern Nebraska, the recent snowfall has pushed large flocks of Horned Larks to the plowed roads and shoulders. I've seen some Lapland Longspurs among them, but no Snow Buntings thus far.

  Yesterday Scott Bradley, Chris Alred and I went searching for some target species in and around Lancaster Co.  One of the first birds we stumbled upon (which we did not expect to find) was a juvenile RED-SHOULDERED HAWK.  The bird was sighted along Roca Rd. slightly to the west of the creek which leads southward to Wagon Train Lake SRA. This was between 96th and 87th St.  
  At Branched Oak Lake we encountered a NORTHERN SHRIKE as well.  Bumping into Larry Einneman; we informed him of the shrike's whereabouts along Northwest 91st St.

So it looks like our president couldnt convince Congress to give him billions for the border wall, so instead he took an executive action to free up $8 billion for it. This means the entire border including S TX and SE AZ, where we all love to go for tropical birding in the US, are going to get wall.

....but it also means there wont be a govt shutdown starting tonight, so Scotts Bluff should be open to Rosy-finch seekers. Given that Rosies are back at Henry Rd. this winter after years of absence, it may (or may not) be a good season for them in W NE overall... so this could be a good time to be looking for state 1st Brown-capped...

Yes, I had Great Horned Owls across the street from my house in Fairmont and frequent Eastern Screech-owl calls. One summer evening I photographed an adult Screech-Owl with 2 fledglings in a low tree by my house.
And in fact there was not a lot of blue jay hassling either. The big thrill was watching 2 GH Owls and a couple of cuckoos in a pretty violent confrontation in the big cottonwood where the GH owls lived year after year.

There is trail access at both Country Club Road and at U st.

Yea but as far as I know, there is no legal parking along the main road (Old Oregon Trail) near the Monument and its trail entrances. I’m pretty sure the parking lot (which is within the park) will be closed during a shutdown, so there is nowhere to park to access the trails.... although I could be wrong...?

Noah, as far as I know you can walk the trails while they are closed. We could last time, as well as before and after the normal hours they are open. The road to the top and the visitors center will be closed if there is a shutdown.

The few times that the rosy-finches were seen this winter,that I know about, they were seen from the parking lot and the highway. They were seen going in and out of the cracks where the White-throated Swifts nest on the south or east face of the monument. I don't believe any have been seen there since the first of the year.

They have been seen north of Henry recently.

After all the Rosy-finch discussion, I thought I should relay to you all that the next government shutdown is scheduled to begin on midnight this Friday, so Scotts Bluff National Monument will be closed indefinitely starting at that time. (No access to the summit or anywhere else will be permitted at any time of day during the shutdown.)

Subject: [NEBirds] Birding in Webster and Nuckolls
Hello Nebraska birders,

No ebird yet, but it will be coming.

Sunday, February 10, Robin and I looked for birds in southeastern
Webster County and southwestern Nuckolls County plus the town park in
Nelson. I will show you a list of highlights followed by details.

Bald Eagle (3)
Northern Harrier (2)
Red-tailed Hawk (59)
Red-headed Woodpecker (1)
Eastern Bluebirds (3)

In Webster County near Inavale we saw an adult Bald Eagle. When we
were on the River Road during the short distance that it follows the
Webster/Nuckolls county line south of the Republican River we first
saw three Eastern Bluebirds in Nuckolls County then we watched them
fly into Webster County. We then watched another adult Bald Eagle fly
in Webster County while we were still sitting in that spot along the
Webster/Nuckolls county line. In Nuckolls County about a mile
southwest of Bostwick we saw yet another adult Bald Eagle. Robin saw
and heard a Red-headed Woodpecker in Nuckolls County at the Nelson
town park. Along our way home we saw a male Northern Harrier in
Webster County near Campbell and then we saw a juvenile Northern
Harrier in Franklin County a ways further along Highway 4. During our
whole drive today we saw 59 Red-tailed Hawks from north central
Kearney County to Franklin then east along Highway 136 to Guide Rock.
Then we went south on 78 to River Road which is south of the
Republican River, from there to Bostwick then to Superior and north to
Highway 4 then west to Highway 10. The 59 Red-tailed Hawks included 2
dark morphs.

Neither one of us added a bird to a County list this day. Robin
stands at 148 in Nuckolls County and 150 in Webster. I stand at 148
in Nuckolls County and 153 in Webster.

May your birds be lifers and your troubles temporary.

good birding and goodbye,

Lanny

Subject: [NEBirds] Rosy Finch
Since there has been considerable discussion on finding or seeing Rosy
Finch in Nebraska I thought I would
throw this information out that may also contribute to the odds of
seeing the birds.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has
updated (2018) the conservation status of 93 bird
species around the world on IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species. This
Red List keeps a record of how close species
are to extinction.

Both the Black Rosy-Finch and the Brown-capped Rosy-Finch have been
up-lifted to "endangered." Since 1970
both of these species have DECLINED 95%. Estimates are around only
15,000 Black Rosy-Finch remain (not a lot considering
the size of their winter and summer ranges + their high alpine
breeding habitat and climate change).

Estimates of the Brown-capped Rosy-Finch are a little larger (67,500)
but still a small number considering their range and migration
from alpine breeding habitat to lower elevation wintering habitat.

Just my 2 cents.

Subject: RE: [NEBirds] Finding rosy-finches.
One thing not mentioned in the past posts is the difference in sunset times between December sightings and sightings in February or March. The 3:00pm arrivals mentioned by Steve are perhaps 1.5 hours before Sunset. Since sunset now is more than an hour later than December’s, one would expect them to arrive at 4:00pm now and at 4:30pm by March 9. The March 10 adjustment for Daylight Savings Time would mean that Sunday’s birds arrive even later at 5:30pm.
So, summarizing the advice given would be to arrive early, maybe 2 hours before sunset, and stay until sunset or the Monument closes.

I think Sam’s onto something here. In Steve’s and my experience, the birds arrive at roost sites mid-afternoon, circle around a bit then dive into roost crannies or Cliff Swallow nests as at the Henry Rd site, and essentially disappear. I’m wondering if the sightings later in the day are the result of disturbance either by monument visitors or birders.

I would assume their behavior changes slightly from day to day, and I'm not totally sure people's behavior would deter them from coming to Scotts Bluff National Monument. My father, brother, and I had a group of approximately 100 fly into the monument at 2:30 PM in December 2012.

When I saw them in Jan. 2015, I didn’t see or hear anything until when they seemed to fly in just before sunset, and then they were quite active, a flock of about 15 flying from place to place nervously but actively foraging on the slopes.

BTW, rosy-finch seekers should keep in mind that Scott’s Bluff is a National Park and therefore it will be CLOSED during the upcoming federal government shutdown.

What others are describing was similar to our recent experience on Old Henry road. They flew in around 3:30pm. Also, the cliff swallow nests were positioned on the Southeast cliff, perfect shield from Nebraska winds.

We were lucky in that some Starlings and the Golden Eagles kept flushing them to reveal their position on the cliff face. They blend in very well.

Have you birded there in the last few years? I suspect the finches don't come in that early anymore, because of the number of people that now visit the summit daily. When I was there in 2015, they came in just before sunset and were extremely nervous and flushy.

First, they seemed to prefer old Cliff Swallow nests on cliffs that faced south or east. Second, they like to go to bed early! Arrival times at the Henry Road site, Scotts Bluff Monument, and a couple of other spots averaged around 3 p.m. They usually didn't linger long before entering the old nests for the night. I'm not sure if this pattern has changed in recent years. So, the monument closure at 4:30 p.m was definitely not an issue for us and we found rosy-finches there several times.

Subject: [NEBirds] Finding rosy-finches.
I thought I would add a bit to this conversation as someone who spent a lot of time (mostly with Ross Silcock) looking for rosy-finch roosts in western Nebraska in the late 1990s and early 2000s. First, they seemed to prefer old Cliff Swallow nests on cliffs that faced south or east. Second, they like to go to bed early! Arrival times at the Henry Road site, Scotts Bluff Monument, and a couple of other spots averaged around 3 p.m. They usually didn't linger long before entering the old nests for the night. I'm not sure if this pattern has changed in recent years. So, the monument closure at 4:30 p.m was definitely not an issue for us and we found rosy-finches there several times.

Subject: Re: [NEBirds] Scotts Bluff Rosy-Finches
It is now no longer possible to see the Rosy-finches at Scotts Bluff, due to the parking at the summit now being closed at 4:30pm. The finches tend to come in just after this, around sunset. Michael has tried a dawn visit to the top, but the birds leave while it's still too dark to identify anything.

Subject: [NEBirds] Burt County Short-earred Owls
I followed Bill Flack's lead this afternoon and went to Burt County looking
for the Short-eared Owls he reported. I found them near where he saw them
north 7 miles from Tekamah on Hwy 75 then east on "N" st. It took an
enjoyable while to figure out how many there are, watching them foraging low
over the grasslands but I am sure there are 6 owls and probably 7 or more.
Great place for raptors! Also saw a Prairie Falcon, 3 Rough-legged Hawks, a
juvenile Harrier and a dark morph redtail. Had a number of close looks but
dang! I forgot my camera. The grasslands ran from County Roads "M" to "O" &
39 to 43. Most seen on Co roads 42 and "N".

There was also a flock of 47 Ring-necked Pheasants.

Subject: [NEBirds] "Feasts of Birdin'" in Nebraska
Hello Nebraska birders,


I'm managing editor of Bird Watcher's Digest. The Spotlight column in the May/June issue of BWD will be on Nebraska, and I'd like to recommend a few popular-with-birders dining spots near birding hotspots. For example, birders who frequent Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Titusville, Florida, often head to Dixie Crossroads afterward. It is a well-known, birder-friendly restaurant. Are there such places in Nebraska?


So, after you've spent the morning at Branched Oak State Recreation Area, or Lake Ogallala, or Lake McConaughy (or any other Nebraska birding hot spot), where do you have lunch?


Please DO NOT reply to this list. Reply to me, at <bwd...>


Thanks for any help you can provide.


Best wishes for good birds,


Dawn Hewitt

Subject: [NEBirds] Black Rosy-Finch- Sioux Co.- 2/02
  This past weekend Scott Bradley, Chris Alred and I made an excursion out to the westernmost reaches of the state.  By far the best species was a male BLACK ROSY-FINCH sighted on an escarpment with a flock of fourteen (14) GRAY-CROWNED ROSY-FINCHES along Henry Road.  Though on the state line, the birds came in from the east, and were flushed  in a swirling mass when a GOLDEN EAGLE made a close approach to the rocky bluff.  At this time the charm definitely entered Sioux Co. airspace.  
  The flock was quite cooperative and allowed for a few distant (though identifiable) photos as they foraged along the crevices.  
  A complete eBird report and photos can be seen here.

William and others, I have forwarded this to Andrew Pierson at Rowe. Hope he can do something about the audio and also the UTube picture does not show the camera panning the river. Carolyn Hall, Bassett, NE

Andrew, this came on NEBirds. I found the new crane cam of UTube but it does not have audio and does not pan. Thank you for all you do at Rowe, know you are busy but the whole world in waiting to see the 2019 crane viewing season. Carolyn

Hello All,




Ron and I were (at sunset) and still are watching them by way of CraneTrust..org even though the camera went into night vision mode. The camera is placed well for seeing all the flocks arrive at the Platte River.

It's a sight for sore eyes, however such a shame there is no sound on either their live video or Audubon's video. Audubon used to have one camera where you can see the waterfowl up pretty close too. I hope a guardian of those cameras reads my post and can make adjustments :D




The Spring migration has officially begun...WooHoo!

Subject: [NEBirds] Short-eared Owls in Burt County
At about 4 this afternoon (February 3), I found at least two, and possibly as many as four, Short-eared Owls near the junction of county roads 45 and M In Burt County. Owls were seen in flight, perched atop a power pole, and perched atop a fencepost-sized pole out in a field. I'm not sure if they'll stick around tomorrow, given the weather forecast; but if they do, they might be worth chasing for someone who wants them for a Burt County list.


I'm not reporting these on eBird, but I'll include them on the report that I send Ross.

Took a loop around the lake and only found one small hole in the ice where Common Goldeneye and Common Merganser were well represented. Then went behind Eppley Airfield and saw a perched adult anatum-esque Peregrine Falcon that was approachable. It was squatted down on one leg so would not show me a leg (looking for a band). First peregrine I have seen at Eppley. Also present 47 turkey, 2 kestrels and 4 redtails.

Subject: [NEBirds] "Feasts of Birdin'" in Nebraska
Hi Nebraska birders,

I’m managing editor for Bird Watcher’s Digest. The Spotlight column in our May/June issue will be on Nebraska. As part of that standing column, we occasionally offer “Feasts of Birdin’”—birder-friendly, birder-recommended eateries near birding hotspots.. For example, many birders who spend the morning birding at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, near Titusville, Florida, meet up at Dixie Crossroads for lunch afterward.

Are there restaurants near birding hotspots in Nebraska that are like that? Where do you eat after birding at Lake McConaughy, or Crescent Lake, or Branched Oak SRA, or Valentine NWR, or Rowe Sanctuary?

Please DO NOT reply to this on the list! Rather, please email me your recommendations: bwd@birdwatchersdigest. com.

Birders from across the continent will be grateful for your advice.

Thanks in advance, and best wishes for good birding!

Dawn Hewitt

I’ve had three Harris’s Sparrows who have decided to brave the winter in my yard. This morning I counted five under the feeder before a Sharpie flew through. This is the most I’ve had winter over in my yard in at least fifteen years. One or two is usually the most.

Hello again. I've received a couple reports from Apple/Mac users that they see two maps on the post. I'm not sure how that is possible, but it is the second map with only yellow and dark blue colored routes that is the correct one. I'm also pasting the map below. Routes in yellow are available.

The weather outside is frightful which makes it the perfect time to make plans for summer. As I usually do around this time, I am making a plea for volunteers to fill vacant Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) routes. Contributing to the BBS program requires only one morning to complete the survey and a route can be done anytime from late May to early July. There are, however, a few requirements one needs to meet before a person signs up. To get the full rundown and to view a map showing the location of vacant BBS routes (in yellow), visit the following link:

https://birds.outdoornebraska.gov/2019-breeding-bird-survey-routes-available/

If, after reading the information on the webpage, you still have questions about the BBS program, please do not hesitate sending me an email off-list or by giving me a phone call at the number below.

Good birding and stay warm!

Hi everyone,



Took a hike along the north floodplain trails this afternoon where, despite
the late hour and the fresh snowfall, a few birds of note were seen. Along
the creek where the tracks at Hawthorne Tr. meet Walking Club/Missouri River
Tr. was a very cooperative Winter Wren (that is cooperative for a Winter
Wren!). Along Cottonwood was a Belted Kingfisher male and a couple of Song
Sparrows were seen, as well. But nary a goose nor duck was spotted on the
River along the Missouri River on Missouri River Tr.



Not too many generics were seen/heard either where Red-headed Woodpeckers
contiue to be the most conspicous woodpecker species of this winter in the
Forest.

then, please contact me and I will give you the info. Not sure if that many
are still there today.

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
I’ve had a female yellow-belly sapsucker here for the last few days on my suet pretty steadily throughout the day. First one I’ve seen in my yard. Not too spooky at all either.
I’ve posted a couple pics on eBird but haven’t been able to get anything uploaded onto Youtube.

I’ve a few pretty good photos, since it is on my deck, if anyone wants, just email me.

Thanks!

Birders,

Alas, the White-winged Junco we reported at our feeder turned into a juvenile Slate Colored Dark-eyed Junco. Apparently the wing bars it wore as a juvenile have not yet worn away. Thanks to Ross Silcock for pointing us to the correct identification.

Subject: RE: [NEBirds] New closure at Branched Oak Lake
I contacted the Branched Oak SRA Superintendent regarding this matter today.. This area is NOT closed at this time, but was closed during the summer and will be closed again during future summers. The sign was inadvertently left from the summer closure. It will be removed this week. Again, there is no new closure at Branched Oak Lake. Thanks, Noah, for reading signs and also bringing this issue to light so it can be rectified.

There was no chain or gate across the entrance, just a sign alongside the entrance.

None of the pavement in the area seemed icy today. What I think is going on is that birders and photographers might have been harassing the eagles that roost in the trees around the overlook, and park management permanently closed the area to protect the birds. ***FYI, I havent actually seen any eagle harassment happen there*** but I know a lot of people visit the lake to photograph the eagles, so its possible there has been bad behavior.

Noah (and others),



Were at BOL recently and noticed that signage but did not worry much about it. The area that is closed off currently is icy and it wouldnt be real wise to go there anyway. Are you certain that that chain represents a permanent change in visitation privileges or is just a safety measure being implemented until it is safe to use the area.

FYI Branched Oak Lake regulars... According to new signage, the parking lot and overlook at the south end of the Branched Oak Lake dam (on NW 98th St. just north of Raymond Rd.) is now closed to vehicles. Parking is not permitted along the road in this area, so there is now no access to this overlook.



This overlook was the best place to scan the middle of the lake for pelagic birds like scoters and loons, and depending on ice conditions, this was also sometimes the best gulling spot on the lake. So keep this closure in mind when planning trips to Branched Oak from now on.

I am using the Canon Powershot SX60 HS. I’m just a beginner at the photos so I went with a camera several birders in Lincoln recommended. It’s lightweight and fairly easy to use. I just didn’t want something heavy when we are out birding. The test will be whether I can use it out in the field. There is now an SX70, but I don’t know much about the upgrade.
