Subject: [NEBirds] Mockingbird
Today I saw a Northern Mockingbird at St Wenseslaus cemetery in Dodge
county. It’s the farthest north I’ve ever seen one.

Also, some of the regular yard visitors include Northern Cardinals,
multiple pairs of Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, many Baltimore Orioles and
Orchard Orioles who love to eat from the hummingbird feeder and guzzle
down the jelly and juice from oranges, an indigo Bunting, RT
Hummingbirds, Eastern Towhees, House and Goldfinches, several Swallow
types, White-Breasted Nuthatches, multiple woodpecker types, Blue Jays,
Brown-Headed Cowbirds, Eastern Bluebirds, and unfortunately House wrens
and House Sparrows who have ruined 2 nest attempts in my BB house, and
an Eastern Phoebe who visits a feeder and waits for bugs to fly by, and
several comical squirrels. It’s been a colorful Spring!

Nebraska birders,

I put up a hummingbird feeder about a month ago. I’ve been
changing the sugar solution every 3 or 4 days but had seen
no hummingbirds. I was just about to give up when I saw one
male Ruby-throated Hummingbird at the feeder this morning.

I agree with John Carlini with his comments about being able to post photos
directly into NEBirds. I have tried for over a year to do this. The
strange thing is that my husband was able to see the photos, but I was
unable to see them. We both realized that he receives NEBird as a direct
email while I receive NEBird as the daily digest.

Thanks for any input.

First off Jan, what kind of computer wizard are you to figure out how to paste photos directly into a NEBirds post?!!  Never seen that desirable feat accomplished before!  I bow to you!
Secondly, what do you think the brown substance coating the Black-crowned Night-Heron in your photo is?  Do you suppose it could it be an oiled bird?  I skimmed through a bunch of BCNH photos in the eBird Macaulay library and couldn't find any other BCNHs with sorry-looking plumage like your bird had - they all had the nice clean typical off-white underparts.

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: Schramm Park this morning
To elaborate on the previous NEBirds' post - Louisiana Waterthrush songs are so individualistic, they're like signatures, and downloading a quality recording into spectrogram format on eBird is like banding the singer.  If only we'd of known sooner, we could of been tracking the Platte River SP Louies for generations!  But we did at least record singers over the last 4 years and it tells us that territory #1 right behind the outhouse by the parking lot has had the same male for 3 years now (I still miss his gregarious predecessor), and the adjacent territory #2 just downstream of there has hosted the same singer for 2 consecutive years now.  There appears to be a new singer on territory #3 by the falls that's very closely related to the #2 singer because he almost sings the same pattern but puts a flare on a certain note that gives him away as a different singer.

How fun Ruthie that you recorded Schramm Louies 2 years in a row to compare!  They have such individualistic songs, judging by your spectrograms in 2018 and yesterday, looks like you've either documented the same singer who's returned to his same stream or a very close relative that's learned an identical song pattern.-Shari Schwartz, Lincoln

Nebraska.

2. Images must be of good quality: sharp focus and high enough resolution
to look good when printed. Please send the highest resolution version you
have.

3. The subjects don't need to be rare birds, but images that document
something interesting about a species (behavior, date, nesting, etc.) are
more likely to be selected.

Hello, all,

NGPC's District Birding Day for the Northeast District will be held on Tuesday, May 21 in Knox County and is open to birders of all experience levels. There will be two different start times. For the early risers, we will be meeting at 6 a.m. at Bohemia Prairie Wildlife Management Area, located northwest of Verdigre. After birding the WMA, we will move to Wildwood Acres Park/Campground on the southeast side of Verdigre and wait for the second flight of birders to arrive. At 9 a.m., the group will divide up and carpool to a variety of grassland, woodland, and wetland habitats in the surrounding areas. We will reconvene at Wildwood Acres at noon to compile checklists. Bring your own lunch. Yours truly may or may not provide dessert. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail at <Jason.Thiele...>

And, despite my misgivings about possibly having my Wood Ducks moved elsewhere, I happened t glance out the kitchen window this a.m. to see both fly through the yard. The male continued on and the female dove straight into the nest box. So looks like we may have ducklings in the future afterall!

Subject: [NEBirds] Whimbrel in Clay County--May 19.
Hi!
   I was traveling up State Highway 14 and just south of Massie WPA, between Road 308 and Road 309, when I stopped to look at a private wetland east of the highway.  I had to use a scope.  First I found 5 black-bellied plovers nearest to the road and a black-crowned night-heron in the far east part of the crop-surrounded wetland.  The best finding was a whimbrel on the west side of the wetland adjacent to the planted field and nearest to the road.  It was rather large, and was speckled gray-brown overall with a long downcurved bill.  The head had pronounced head stripes. 
   On the NW quadrant of Road 309 and State Highway 14 was another large private wetland that I looked at with a scope.  It was much bigger and a portion extended and wrapped around to the east and abutted with Highway 14.  I did not look at the north side where many shorbs were seen.  I heard one A. bittern calling. I viewed the west end form 309 Road.
   Earlier, I checked out Sora WMA in Fillmore County.  I have never been there before.  I was curious to see what it had to offer.  Over the weekend a snowy plover{s) was reported there.  There were hundreds of shorbs at a distance and a scope was needed.  I found 2 snowy plovers and there were two ruddy turnstones also present. 
   My visit to Smartweed Marsh WMA in Nucholls County was also a surprise and productive.  A number of ducks, grebes and shorebirds were present.  A ruddy turnstone was close to the road and a peregrine falcon sent the shorebirds flying.
    Ebird report will follow sometime later in the week after an out-of-town funeral (Wednesday) and chauffering obligations.
Good birding!

Subject: [NEBirds] today in northeast Nebraska

  I've been tragically confined to the office both at work and at home for the better part of this week, so I made it a point to get outside today. I took a walk along the trail on the east side of Ta-ha-Zouka Park in Norfolk early this morning before work in hopes of finding some neotropical migrants. A few highlights included a singing Wood Thrush, some very vocal Tennessee Warblers, Blackpoll Warblers, an Indigo Bunting, abundant Baltimore Orioles and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and a couple of White-crowned Sparrows, which have been scarce around here this spring. Most surprising were a Grasshopper Sparrow and a Bobolink that were both singing from the grassy area between the baseball fields and 1st St.
I had to check on some CRP sites in Stanton and Cuming counties today, and the birds of the day were Dickcissels (as a couple of others have mentioned today) and Sedge Wrens, which were singing at virtually every location with a decent amount of grass. A Loggerhead Shrike was seen in Stanton County, as well as my first Yellow-billed Cuckoo of the year and an Osprey with a fish by Union Creek.
Observations will entered in eBird later.

This morning at F.F. I had a Black Throated- blue Warbler on the second
loop of the boardwalk on the south side, he was vocalizing and could be
heard from both the boardwalk and Linden Trail. I have pictures and an
audio which I will put on ebird. He was there from 9:15-12:30 and still
present when I left. Bobby Walz was also able to see the BTBW, Other
highlights of the morning include.
Blackbernian Warbler
25+ Tennessee Warbler
Kentucky Warbler
Blackpoll Warbler
Yellow-billed Cuckoo's
Pileated Woodpecker

Soon to be on ebird.

Good birding.

Knowing it might rain today with even greater chances Saturday and
Sunday I left home at 5:10AM for some county birding in some of my
underbirded counties reasonably close to home.
My first stop-some sheetwater in NE Wayne county; shocked I was as I
stepped out of my vehicle into some rather brutal wind. My car is garaged
and the wind was apparently mostly behind me while driving giving me no
indication that I was about to have a rather blustery day. This coupled
with good chances of rain suggested a woeful day. Other areas in Wayne
County: Wayne, Thomas Barnes WMA, Ikes Lake, "Dog Town Creek" (private but
open to public March 1-Nov 1), Carrol WTP. Added 32 county birds (63).
Pierce County--Willow Creek SRA with some brief random stops. Added
15 county birds (70).
Antelope County--was hoping for 20 new county birds maybe add this
county to the 125+ list. Despite meeting up with Mark Brogie and having
his incredible eyes and ears, I only added 16 species (121) as the wind
went from bad to worse. Two stops Grove Lake and and some sheetwater just
west of Hwy 14 (2 miles N of Hwy 20). The sheetwater had already been
scoped out by Mark--Hudsonian Godwits (8), Black-belled Plover (3),
assorted other shore birds, and 62 Redhead. Grove Lake is a "must bird"
location if you are in Antelope County.
Dakota County--last minute stop on information from Bill Huser (flooded
field) added 1 species (Sanderling) for 177.

Best Birds: Swainson's Hawk, White-faced Ibis, great looks (eye level) at
two Yellow-throated Vireo.

The wind got worse as the day went on but the rain pretty much worked its
way around me making for a successful but unpleasant birding day.

91 species of the day, 280 miles, 39 new year birds, 65 county tics,
explored 12 new locations. Great day of Nebraska birding. Thanks Mark
for making my day.

God Bless,

Our backyard has never been so “Oriole Rich” as we are currently. The chatter and singing is constant
We have at least three male Baltimore (seen at same time), two male Orchard (seen at same time), one male Bullock that just showed up about an hour ago, and at least six, and maybe more, females (but I am still working on the difference among the different species females).

Subject: [NEBirds] birding week in Polk Co, NE
I just got back from my 4 day birding vacation (May 13 - 16) at our place
in Polk county. Weather sure didn't co-operate as I would have liked to go
a little earlier but...
Primary goal is to see "warblers" and that plan didn't really work - I
found the warblers to be in low numbers (1 or 2..) and low in species ( 8
species - nothing "unusual"). I hear that they "flew over" in a mass
migration!
I enjoyed seeing all the normal summer residents appear - sometimes
overnight - no Vireos on monday and tuesday - lots on wed!
Indigo buntings appeared on tuesday - along with 1 Lazuli Bunting
On thursday - after a lot of chasing I observed 1 Yellow-breasted Chat
(might have been 2 - first disappeared into a big thicket - I gave up - but
as I was walking away - found it (or a 2nd one up ahead - don't think the
first could get around me - had a good view of this bird).
Probably the best "birds" for the entire time - was the Rose-breasted
Grosbeaks - they were in the woods in abundance! 4 or 5 at a time, males
and females, - I usually have a couple pairs for the summer, never this
many - I guess they will sort out the territory and some will move on - but
was fun to have the beautiful birds everywhere 😊

My husband observed a flock of 50+ Ruddy Turnstones on Lake North, Columbus
NE on Wed May 15...(he got a picture even) on the "beaches" of the lake -
They were not around when I checked it out Thursday afternoon.

Good Birding to the spring field trip !!

I did my usual morning walk around the yard this morning and with only one new arrival, an Eastern Wood Peewee, so I neaded to the house. On the way a bird flew from the Apple tree to a bare branch in an old ash tree. A Yellow-billed Cuckoo! He gave me long, great looks. First in the yard in many years. I also had a late Lincoln’s Sparrow.

Of note yesterday I had a Blue-headed Vireo, Gray-cheeked Thrush, Alder Flycatcher (vocalizing his right call), and a late White -throated Sparrow.

We moved to Sidney recently from Denver and this is our first spring here. I've been enjoying migration season and have added a few lifebirds to my list. Some I also saw in Denver (we had an amazing backyard and lived half a block from a creek, so I saw quite a few species over the years).

This is a partial list of birds I've seen since being here (I'm sure I'll leave a few out):

American goldfinch
Pine siskin
Lark sparrow
Brown Thrasher
Brown headed cowbird
American coot
Northern flicker
Canada goose
Red breasted nuthatch
White breasted nuthatch
Mallard
Great horned owl (heard, not seen)
Chipping sparrow

Eurasian collared dove
Robin
Common grackle
Great tailed grackle
Crow
Turkey vulture

Subject: [NEBirds] Madison county barred owl and others
Heard the Barred Owl calling this morning about a mile west of broken bridge on the cowboy trail. They’ve been at this spot for at least 3 years now. Other birds in the area included A few Wood Thrushes. Magnolia, Blackpoll, and black and white warblers. A ton of flycatchers have shown up over the last couple days, including Willow.

Subject: [NEBirds] birding out and about
Terri and I were on boardwalk, ridge trail, Handsome Hollow and Hackberry on Monday. The redstarts were everywhere! Had a loudly singing Kentucky warbler singing as we walked back towards the buildings on, I think, Hackberry trail. Had a great look at scarlet tanager on ridge trail.

Today, I was in Wilderness Park trying to find what Dan Leger had seen yesterday. I had the best luck at the second entrance, 1st and Calvert. Found both the male mourning warbler, Blackpoll and the Philadelphia vireo along the trail at the west end near the creek. Also, a female summer tanager. At the first entrance, Day camp, much less diversity. Only birds of note were two red-headed woodpeckers along the soggy trail on the north end.

Subject: [NEBirds] Canada Warbler at Pioneers Park
I found an adult male Canada Warbler at Pioneers Park this morning around 9:45 a.m. It was foraging low in bushes along the pond in the lowland prairie section of the park, across from the bison wallows. A useful landmark is some orange storm fencing near the pond overflow.

I also found an adult male Mourning Warbler in the bird feeder area just outside the nature center. Seems like an odd place, but there he was.

Hello, all,

NGPC's District Birding Day for the Northeast District will be held on Tuesday, May 21 in Knox County and is open to birders of all experience levels. There will be two different start times. For the early risers, we will be meeting at 6 a.m. at Bohemia Prairie Wildlife Management Area, located northwest of Verdigre. After birding the WMA, we will move to Wildwood Acres Park/Campground on the southeast side of Verdigre and wait for the second flight of birders to arrive. At 9 a.m., the group will divide up and carpool to a variety of grassland, woodland, and wetland habitats in the surrounding areas. We will reconvene at Wildwood Acres at noon to compile checklists. Bring your own lunch. Yours truly may or may not provide dessert. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail at <Jason.Thiele...>

Subject: [NEBirds] Wilderness Park Warblers
I spent about four hours this morning working the north end of Wilderness Park in Lincoln, roughly from 1st and Park Streets to the Calvert loop. I hadn't birded in this area for several years and had forgotten how nice it is.

Good day for warblers. I had 11 species, most notably a female Golden-winged and a male Mourning. Black-and-whites were common as were the expected Yellows and Yellow-rumps. Also significant was one Philadelphia Vireo. At one point I was surrounded by three Barred Owls; once one started hooting they all got going.

See you folks in Fairbury in a few days!

Today I saw one of the Bitterns at Springer basin the bird nerds told me about and there were many Sora's calling at any basin I stopped at.There maybe is to much water in the northwest York co. basins as I have a hard time finding new shorebirds this year. I did find 12 Stilt sandpipers at one stop and had close views of a dozen Buff breasted sandpipers south of a farm pond 8 miles west of Benedict. At Buckley park in Stromsburg I found a Redstart ,a Blackpoll warbler & an Ovenbird along with the usual Yellowrumps,yellow & Orangecrowneds.  Steve Morris  Grand Island

Hi fellow birders,

I am selling my Canon 60D, Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS and Canon EF 1.4x extender v1 for $1,050. Reason for selling is I have other birding gears that I use and havent used the combo for a long while.

The 60D had just came in from Canon Service Center for cleaning and I can provide receipt. It is also slightly used with only a total of 18,693 shutter count. The lens is pristine and comes with a lenscoat so youll be hard-pressed to find any scratch on it.

This used to be my main birding combo before.

Please email me directly at <ericpatdu...><mailto:<ericpatdu...> if you are interested in photos of the equipment.

Governor Kim Reynolds has signed a bill that will charge a $5.00 daily use fee for Lake Manawa and Waubonsie State Parks for non-residents of Iowa beginning July 1st. Non-residents of Iowa can purchase a yearly pass for $40.00. The DNR has not announced how they are going to charge and enforce the fee as yet but the bill calls for four pay stations, two manned and two kiosks.. This is supposed to be a 3-year trial and will end in 2022. As far as I know no other Iowa parks are affected.

The area containing a boat launch near the sailing club that is accessed from Vetrans Memorial Highway (South Omaha Bridge Road) and includes the area we call Eagle Point is a city park. Non-residents will be able to bird in that area for free.

Subject: [NEBirds] Carolina Wren (no sighting)
Here in Council Bluffs, IA, my daughter Kerry King and I fed a pair of Carolina Wrens all winter. They lived on homemade suet mixture, dried meal worms, and a wild finch food seed mixture that we put in the kitchen window feeder. They lived through the polar vortex and the blizzard and all the problems that this past winter presented for birds, and we delighted when they would show up day after day and had lived through terribly cold nights. Then one day at the end of March after the “melt” was well under way, they were simply gone. They are not heard from elsewhere in the neighborhood. I don’t hear Carolina Wren on my birding trails north of Council Bluffs and I haven’t heard them at Lake Manawa.

It reminds me of Tufted Titmouse last summer. One day in early June they were playing in and drinking from the birdbath as per usual and the next day they were gone. I haven’t heard or seen one since. Tanya Bray and I were keeping daily totals here in my yard last year so we noticed their absence right away.

I have a Cooper’s Hawk resident and this winter I had Sharp-shinned and even a Red-shouldered plus owls but for all the birds of these groups to fall victim even to a cat at the same time is beyond my ability to imagine.

FOY birds seen the past few days, House Wren at work on the 8th, Least
Flycatcher, Violet-green Swallow and Bank Swallow on May 9th at Lake
Minatare.

Today at Lake Minatare I had a FOY Warbling Vireo and also saw a Bonaparte's
Gull in non-breeding plumage and a breeding plumaged Common Loon. I think
this is the first time I have seen a Common Loon in breeding plumage in
Scotts Bluff County. I ran (well..hurried ) back to the car to get my
camera but couldn't locate the loon again. Then a bit later I saw it flying
across the lake and over the trees heading east.



There are still Yellow-rumped warblers all over the place. I don't believe I
have ever seen so many in so many places. Every marshy place I look has many
of them in the cattails and in the trees. I suppose that's a good place to
find lots of insects right now. And they are also in town and at my house,
just everywhere!



Yesterday at the lake there was one cottonwood tree with 4 species of
swallows siting in it. Barn, Bank, Tree and Violet-green. It was pretty
cool to see! The Cliff Swallows were at the bridge near the entrance to the
lake.

Walked around the far southern part of the creek at Walnut Grove Park after a day at Fontenelle and found the earlier reported White-eyed Vireo just around the west side.

Heard this scoldy chattering that in part reminded me of the Summer Tanager kittytuck and looked around for what I heard and there it was! Yellow spectacled vireo with them white eyes!

Nice warbler at Fontenelle was black throated greens up at the high point of Hawthorne Trail.

Saw a Pileated too!!!

Birdathon + Mother's Day Weekend = Mother Nature Celebrations!


Mother Nature is certainly deserving of some spring festivities and Wachiska Audubon's Birdathon weekend events are a great way to celebrate everybody's mother without even having to purchase a greeting card. The annual Birdathon fundraiser provides an opportunity for all bird lovers to contribute their observations during a weekend-long treasure hunt to accumulate the maximum number of species for donation pledges based on our collective species total. Field trips on both Saturday and Sunday will feature favorite birding hotspots with a diversity of quality habitat that can broaden our group species list. Items recommended for field trips are water bottle, insect repellent, and binoculars if you have them and additionally, birders in attendance at Branched Oak Lake are encouraged to bring a spotting scope if they have one. The public is welcome. Anyone wanting to share their personal May 11 & 12 species observations for the Wachiska southeast Nebraska region can send their list to: <office...> to increase the Birdathon species total.


Platte River State Park, Saturday May 11, 8:00 a.m.

There's a couple reasons why this state park is such a special place for birds and birders. Mature oak trees in a closed-canopy forest attract both Summer and Scarlet Tanagers, and a unique perennial headwater stream is irresistible to nesting Louisiana Waterthrushes as well as a delightful list of bathers ranging from Kentucky Warblers to Tufted Titmice. Our hike will start at the observation tower and follow along Stone Creek. We'll meet in the parking lot next to the observation tower and Scott Lodge restaurant. From I-80 turn south at exit #426 and follow Road N-66 past South Bend to park entrance. Road work is currently in progress between South Bend and Road N-50 so allot for additional travel time in case a pilot car causes a delay. A state park vehicle entry permit is required and a daily pass is available for $6 per vehicle.


Branched Oak Lake State Recreation Area, Sunday May 12, 8:00 a.m.

This lake is one of those locales that always yields great waterbirds even if they're not what one's looking for. The numerous bays are a popular stopover spot for springtime migrants like egrets, pelicans, and cormorants with sometimes even a single Neotropic Cormorant shrimp tagging along with the Double-cresteds. The lake is located northwest of Lincoln and we'll meet in the Area 14 parking lot at the southeast corner of the lake and dam, just north of the intersection of N.W. Crounse Road and W. Raymond Road. A state park vehicle entry permit is required and a daily pass is available for $6 per vehicle.

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: birding at Holmes Lake and Wilderness Park
We went out there for an hour at 4PM, and there were a few warblers, but all very high up, except one black and white. With some effort I could assign one Nashville. The area of Old Cheney South of the road was very muddy. On the plus side, no mosquitoes in cool weather.

  I just now have another Northern Waterthrush in the yard. This one is working the rocks over at the edge of the pond. First had one on the 6th. I feel more than lucky with two this year.

We were cleaning up limbs and branches from a tree we had trimmed (butchered by my standards) and there was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet hopping around in the mess unperturbed by my pulling out limbs and hauling them away. Finally with little left to hop around on he left.

Subject: [NEBirds] Audubon's Yellow-rumped
On May 8, the Ratzlaffs and I visited several sites in Madison, Stanton and Cuming Counties. Yellow-rumped Warblers were ubiquitous (males & females), often in large flocks and sometimes in fields, on the ground and on fences.


At Maskenthine Lake (Stanton County), we observed an especially large flock of YRWAs feeding on the ground in a recently-burned prairie. One of the birds was clearly a male Audubon's race YRWA. It had a bright yellow chin/throat and broad white edging on the secondary coverts, giving the appearance of a white wing patch.


At Ta-ha-zouka Park in Norfolk (Madison County) we found the Common Loon in alternate plumage that I believe others have reported. We also found a COLO in basic plumage in the sand pit lake across the Elkhorn River to the south of Ta-ha-zouka Park.


Also in Norfolk (Madison County) we found a very cooperative Ovenbird that posed for pictures in the Old Lutheran Cemetery (North 12th St and Elm Ave).


In Cuming & Dodge Counties south of West Point and east of Hwy 275 we found several Bobolinks in the wet meadows north of Dead Timber SRA. The paved road east of Hwy 275 that leads to Dead Timber is closed (bridge washed out), so you have to take the gravel roads farther north to the east and then south to get to Dead Timber.


Despite the persistent rain and generally dreary conditions, we tallied 78 species for the day (not on eBird).


Good birding - Rick

Subject: [NEBirds] Carolina Wrens (no sighting)
I have been reading the posts regarding CARWs, apparently in decline this spring. When I visit Fontenelle Forest, I usually see/hear several. Every time I have been there this spring, I have heard only one (off Hackberry Trail toward the housing development). Anecdotal evidence on NEBirds might suggest that the birds that found feeders in people's yards during the winter survived better than birds in the uninhabited wilds...just my two cents.

Subject: [NEBirds] Golden-winged WA and others at Lauritzen Gardens
On May 9, I visited Lauritzen Gardens (Douglas Co, Omaha). Towards the end of the day when the human traffic slowed down, the bird traffic picked up considerably. I had nine species of warbler, including a male Golden-winged. Highlights are listed below, and the full list is on eBird.


Golden-winged Warbler - 1 male
Blackpoll Warbler - 1 male
Black-and-white Warbler - 3
American Redstart - 1 male, 2 females
Nashville Warbler - 6
Tennessee Warbler - 2 males
Yellow Warbler - ~18 (mostly males but a few females)
Yellow-rumped Warbler - ~35 (fair mix of males and females)
Orange-crowned Warbler - ~12


Ruby-throated Hummingbird - 1 male
Least Flycatcher - 1
Great Crested Flycatcher - 1
Yellow-throated Vireo - 1
Brown Thrasher - 5
Gray Catbird - ~6
Lincoln's Sparrow - 1
White-throated Sparrow - 2
Orchard Oriole - 1 ASY male (bittersweet orange and black)
Baltimore Oriole - ~8

Rose-breasted Grosbeak - 4 males, 1 female

Jerry,
Had two YTVI at Bacon Creek on Wednesday at eye level as well.
Incredibly active and moving around (not quite as much as Ruby-Crowned
Kinglet but they were incredibly vocal and flying 150 yards away then over
there etc.
Also saw 7 Marsh Wren, Common Yellow-throat, and 4 Yellow-rumped warblers
in a marsh/wetland. Watched for 20 minutes. NOT a single vocalization
from any of them. They were just rushing around feeding like crazy. Never
been around Marsh Wren when at last some of them were not vocalizing.
They must have been really cold and hungry.

God Bless,

Subject: [NEBirds] birding at Holmes Lake and Wilderness Park
At Holmes Lake yesterday about three pm - say 11 Forster’s Terns and 1 Caspian Tern. Had good comparisons between Forster’s and Caspian when flying. Caspian noticeably bigger in body and orange bill seemed much thicker as well. Palm Warbler is still hanging around as well.

Yesterday in the yard we had a blue-headed vireo and an oven bird. Great views of both!

Today, May 9, Wilderness Park, Old Cheney - Warblers definitely are arriving: besides orange-crowned, yellow, common yellow-throat and yellow-rumped, I found 1 male redstart, 1 ovenbird and 3 black-and-whites. Some empids around but no one was talking.

Later in morning, May 9, met Terri at Wilderness Park, Pioneers Blvd - nice looks at both yellow-throated and blue-headed vireos as well as black-and-whites, blackpolls and 1 mourning warbler. I didn’t actually see the mourning - DRAT! I was giving Terri field marks as she glassed it. Bird finally turned around and she saw the dark face, no eye ring, and black at bottom of gray bib. It was not singing.

A Carolina wren zipped through my standing feeder yesterday. It stayed just long enough to let me get a good look. I haven't seen one in my yard in years.

Not on E-bird

From the Mormon Bridge, I drove up to N. P. Dodge Park (closed) but there
was a hen Wood Duck with her brood of 14-17 waddling across the road heading
towards water. Didn't realize they have large broods!

Also heard a Sedge Wren calling north of the entrance.



Stopped at the stream trail on the north side of Hummel Park. Highlights.

Swainson's Thrush

Least Flycatchers-2

Willow Flycatcher, heard and seen

Blue-headed Vireo

Warbling Vireo

Red-eyed Vireo

Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher

Ovenbird

Golden-winged Warbler

Black & White Warbler

Orange-crowned Warblers-3

Nashville Warbler

Common Yellow-throats-2

American Redstarts-4

Yellow Warblers -3

Blackpoll Warblers -2

Yellow-rumped Warblers-10



Went on to The Krim at Neale Woods. Went only as far as the foot bridge
because the trail is still closed.

Yellow-throated warbler (eye level!) weird

Indigo Bunting

Lots of yellow and Yellow-rumps here.



At my feeders I still have 2 Pine Siskins. Monday, a male Red-breasted
Nuthatch showed up and was here through yesterday. Also have at least 3
Baltimore Orioles (#s seem to be growing by the day). And a male R-T Hummer
showed up this morning.

I just now have another Northern Waterthrush in the yard. This one is working the rocks over at the edge of the pond. First had one on the 6th. I feel more than lucky with two this year.

We were cleaning up limbs and branches from a tree we had trimmed (butchered by my standards) and there was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet hopping around in the mess unperturbed by my pulling out limbs and hauling them away. Finally with little left to hop around on he left.

There were a couple more new migrants which I hadn't seen since my last walk Monday morning, notably the Black-and-White Warblers, and Blackpoll Warblers (FOY), Least Flycatchers, Summer Tanagers (FOY) and Swainson's Thrushes and Blue-headed Vireo.    A nice afternoon walk after the rains this morning, but wet and muddy.  Here's the list:  https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56016671   I'll be curious what you all think of the photo of the Eastern Towhee (the amount of white on the wing makes me wonder if this is a cross) and the lack of a prominent eye-ring on the Least Flycatcher which called like a Least.   It seemed like there was alot more activity than Monday morning.   The Summer Tanagers I heard, and quickly saw two males chasing each other and wasn't long before I spotted the female.   They were all south of Old Cheney, at the T intersection area south of the walking bridge.   There were two fox barking at me on the bike trail.  
Good birding....

Subject: [NEBirds] White-eyed Vireo - Walnut Grove Park, Omaha, NE
After diligently searching, was lucky enough to observed Rick's WEVI today! Unfortunately, I was not able to obtain a photo.

Attached are two screenshots of Google Maps. One shows the general location of the bird and the other a close-up of the location.

Looking at the more distant photo... I had worked the West side of the creek heading North to the end of the park and returned over an hour later returned on the East side heading South. I observed the bird towards the end of the creek in a thick bush. It had yellow spectacles, gray nape, white belly and neck with yellow flanks. I believe Rick observed the bird on the West side, just North my my location closer to the mouth of the pond near the picnic table.

Complete list on ebird: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55982572

Also, while birding there my car was broken into between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. Crazy, because the park is small and has a lot of people in it and I was only out of sight from the vehicle for an hour. Fortunately, my bins and camera were with me and the scope was at home. Please use this as a reminder to place valuables out of view, or if possible lock in the trunk. I failed to do this, leaving my backpack, camera bag and bin case out in the open on the back seat. Using this opportunity to remind everyone to be aware of their surroundings and to please be safe.

Take care,

Driving home from Sioux Falls about 5 pm across country on 577 Ave. and 882 Rd. due west of Buckskin Lake, a bird flushed from along the road and flew about thirty feet into the grass. As it landed I saw the definitive pointed tail with white outer edge. Sharp-tailed Grouse! A new Dixon County bird for me. #270

We had a Eurasian Tree Sparrow at Loess Bluffs NWR on Monday, May 6.
Location was at a huge brush pile just prior to entering the north woods.
After catching a glimpse of it, we hung around for a few more minutes so we could catch sight of it again to verify it.
It was among a Harris Sparrow, Indigo Bunting, White-crowned Sparrow, Easter Wood Peewee, 3 Chipping Sparrows, and 3 Norther Cardinals. We also had two birds we couldn't identify in the same place. That wood pile was a grand place to stop and watch for a few minutes!

There were also many greater yellowlegs and Wilson's phalaropes.

Subject: [NEBirds] Re: FOY Orchard Oriole
We’ve had quite a few Baltimore Orioles now for a few days finally, and we’re getting several Grosbeaks on the feeder daily. Had a Towhee in the yard feeding for the last couple days. And one lonely white crowned sparrow made an appearance a couple times. Goldfinches have “yellowed up” nicely and my daughter reported a quick sighting of a hummingbird on her feeder on their acreage near Louisville but didn’t get time for a positive ID. We’ve not seen a hummer yet. Other than that, all the usual yard birds. Still have quite a few dang Starlings & Grackles that refuse to leave town, which empty my suet feeder about daily. Even the upside down one which is supposed to deter them. Yeah, right. Maybe spring has finally arrived. :)

Subject: [NEBirds] Southeastern Sherman County 5/5/19
Hello Nebraska birders,

An ebird message may be sent in the not to distant future.

Sunday, May 5,2019, Robin and I looked for birds in Sherman County. I
will show you a list of highlights followed by details.

Stilt Sandpiper (16) FOY
Long-billed Dowitcher (2) FOY
Wilson’s Snipe (2)
Lesser Yellowlegs (4)
Wilson’s Phalarope (10) FOY
Franklin’s Gull (30)
American White Pelicans (25)
Broad-winged Hawk (1) FOY
Least Flycatcher (1) FOY
Warbling Vireo (1) FOY
Gray Catbird (1) FOY
Clay-colored Sparrow (at least 3) FOY
Bobolink (around 3)
Common Yellowthroat (1)

In Sherman County near the southwestern side of the Middle Loup River
near Rockville Robin heard two Wilson’s Snipe, we saw at least three
Clay-colored Sparrows, saw and heard our FOY Gray Catbird, a Least
Flycatcher, a Warbling Vireo FOY and heard a Common Yellowthroat.
Near the northeast side of the Middle Loup River and several miles
north of Rockville we saw four Lesser Yellowlegs, two Long-billed
Dowitchers FOY, sixteen FOY Stilt Sandpipers and ten Wilson’s
Phalaropes FOY. At the Loup City Airport we heard around three
Bobolinks. A couple miles south of Loup City at Gasteyer Sanctuary
Robin saw and both of us heard a Broad-winged Hawk.

About the Broad-winged Hawk, Robin wrote this for me to include in my
message. It was buteo shaped, it had a dark terminal band and it gave
a high pitched teee note.

Robin added two to her Sherman County list for a new total of 177.
Her new ones were Long-billed Dowitcher and Broad-winged Hawk. I
added three to my Sherman County list for a new total of 178. My new
ones were Least Flycatcher, Long-billed Dowitcher and Broad-winged
Hawk.

May your birds be lifers and your troubles temporary.

good birding and goodbye,

Lanny

Subject: [NEBirds] FOY birds and Hiway 2 drive
I'm starting to see new year birds each day now. FOY today was
Orange-crowned and Yellow Warblers and Baird's Sandpipers. I was at Lake
Minatare this afternoon and saw quite a few Myrtle's Yellow-rumps but no
Audubon's which I thought was odd because few days ago they were split about
50/50.



On Sunday morning I took a drive on Hiway 2 from Alliance to Lakeside and
north of Lakeside about a mile. There is a lot of water alongside the
roads, and ponds where I haven't seen them before.

Best birds for me were a Glossy Ibis, Red-necked Phalaropes and Long-billed
Curlews. There were a lot of White-faced Ibis, they were just about
everyplace I looked. I didn't count them all, but I probably saw 300 or
more. There were also a lot of Eared Grebes and Rudy Ducks around.



A complete list of what I counted on ebird along Hiway 2 and a mile north of
Lakeside in Sheridan County is below with a few birds that I saw in Scotts
Bluff County yesterday afternoon.

Below that is a list of my FOY birds for the past few days. These are all
reported on ebird. I only counted the birds at the ponds where I stopped to
look. I had to be back by 1:00 so didn't stop everywhere I wanted to, I
should have planned better.

I just had my FOY hummingbird flying around the feeders for a few seconds. He didn't find his, but perhaps he'll be back. Baltimore Orioles are regulars at their jelly, as are the catbirds. I finally got a photo of our towhee. Usually on the ground, he actually perched for more than 2 seconds on the staff that holds the platform feeder.

Subject: [NEBirds] Indian Cave State Park- 5/04- Fontenelle- 5/02
  On Saturday morning Scott Bradley and I ventured down south to visit Indian Cave State Park (Nemaha/Richardson Co.) in Nebraska's southeast corner.  
  Though there appeared to be a lack of actual migrants, many neotropical breeding species were already present here.  Most of these were detected by song and vocalization, though a handful were visible  These included....
-5 Great crested Flycatcher
-4 Yellow-throated Vireo
-2 Warbling Vireo
-2 Red-eyed Vireo
-5 Wood Thrush
-3 Ovenbird
-2 Louisiana Waterthrush
-8 Kentucky Warbler (Two males along the St. Deroin road were chasing each other and battling for territory affording us both great visuals)
-10 American Redstart
-9 Northern Parula
-23 Yellow Warbler
-4 Summer Tanager
-3 Scarlet Tanager
-29 Rose-breasted Grosbeak
-2 Indigo Bunting

During the early afternoon of 5/02 I birded the uplands of Fontenelle Forest and noted 56 species.  A few of these hinted at a trickle of migrants including...
-3 Least Flycatcher
-6 Yellow-throated Vireo
-4 Blue-headed Vireo
-7 Swainson's Thrush
-2 Hermit Thrush (Still remaining.  Characteristically intermittently tail raising and dipping and giving dry "chuck" calls.)
-1 Northern Waterthrush
-2 Black-and-White Warbler
-17 Orange-crowned Warbler
-2 Nashville Warbler
-1 American Redstart
-1 Northern Parula
-1 Palm Warbler
-44 Yellow-rumped Warbler
-1 Summer Tanager (singing near Oak Trail).
-5 Rose-breasted Grosbeak

More regarding this list and others can be found on eBird.
  This morning (5/05) while birding on the Mercer Woods property before work; a couple unexpected flyovers included a DICKCISSEL calling dry "zrrrt" notes, as well as a single BREWER'S BLACKBIRD.  The Brewer's was calling a very nasal and rather rapid repeated "chek" reminiscent of the tonality and resonance of the chatter associated with Baltimore Oriole.
My apologies for the unusually long post.
Good birding.

Hi All,

Just had a whip-poor-will calling in my neighborhood. I heard it from my
living room and stepped outside to listen. Didn't hear it again so, I
played the call from the Sibley app. Then I heard it distantly. It was
quiet for a time and then calling again very close. I recorded it with my
standard android phone recorder and it is attached. I put the record in
eBird, but not sure if/how I can upload the recording.

NEbirders:

This may be the final reminder to submit your registration for the NOU Spring Meeting in Fairbury 17-19 May. The registration deadline is 8 May and the form can be found here: http://www.noubirds.org/Meetings/Registration/118..pdf

One of the field trips will be to Rose Creek WMA and will be led by Shari Schwartz and John Carlini. The trip will likely have several birding highlights, but also a visit to the McDowell Mausoleum. Never heard of it? This video provides a good overview of what it is and how it came to be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eZQxxnL8zM&t=2s

In the earlier 1900's, a Fairbury, NE man (Nelson McDowell) spent a decade chiseling out a two room mausoleum in a sandstone bluff. This feature can be found...

A little bit of a hike is involved to reach the mausoleum, as shown by the field trip flier prepared by the field trip leaders. Good fun!

On Sun May 5, I birded Walnut Grove Park (Douglas Co, Omaha, 150th & Q Streets). The best bird was a foraging (but silent) White-eyed Vireo. I will upload my two best photos. The bird was working two ash trees just south of the pond. Best views were from the west side of the creek.


Other birds of note were:


Barred Owl - 1
Palm Warbler - 1
Black-and-white Warbler - 1
Common Yellowthroat - 1
Least Flycatcher - 2 or 3
Sparrows: Song, Harris, Lincoln's, White-throated, Clay-colored


Complete list is on eBird. Good birding - Rick

Yes, I forgot to mention Michael W's words of wisdom when he told me he'd seen the LTDU earlier in the morning, after I'd already given up�that it was underwater "95%" of the time. Ergo great patience is needed. He also noted that it seemed to stay close to the EAGRs, and that helped, too.



Yes, it was my 300th NE species, though I've seen it at Gavins Point Dam several times (but never from the NE side). For some reason, I had in my head that NE #300 would be a Glossy Ibis!

Yes, I forgot to mention Michael W's words of wisdom when he told me he'd seen the LTDU earlier in the morning, after I'd already given up—that it was underwater "95%" of the time. Ergo great patience is needed. He also noted that it seemed to stay close to the EAGRs, and that helped, too.

Yes, it was my 300th NE species, though I've seen it at Gavins Point Dam several times (but never from the NE side). For some reason, I had in my head that NE #300 would be a Glossy Ibis!

Subject: [NEBirds] The recently sighted Long-tailed Duck
I had grand plans for this morning, which all changed when I received an alert from eBird of a female Long-tailed Duck seen on Lake Conestoga yesterday (SB and OD).   Headed out before breakfast, only to quickly reach pockets of fog, which became widespread as I got closer to Conestoga Lake.  Hung around a good hour, finally hearing an FOY Northern Bobwhite, and finding some FOY Baltimore Oriole's as well.   The fog lifted about 7:45 am, long enough to scope the lake, but to no avail.   It was a lovely morning however, but as the fog set in again, returned home for breakfast.   
Headed out soon for a bit of walking at Wilderness Park at Old Cheney, finding a singing FOY Red-eyed Vireo, and later heard Yellow-throated Vireos, I thought, but the chasing around the three  far off small birds seemed to be doing, and their wrenny chattering followed by whirring calls and more chattering, was nothing I'd heard before.   About 45 minutes later I returned to the same spot, and this time I got a closer look at the trio, to confirm they were FOY Yellow-throated Vireos, both singing, and doing this two part scolding while chasing each other show.   Very cool!   Later heard FOY Great-crested Flycatchers.   
Back home again, this time getting the alert that Tom Gannon re-found the Long-tailed Duck at Conestoga, so Mike and I headed out after lunch.   Scoped from the middle parking lot, north side, but the ducks were alot further towards the south shore, and never found the LTDU.   We headed over to the south side, but again, no LTDU, just brief rain showers.  Returned to the north side, finding an FOY Eastern Kingbird enroute, and we scoped again, from the middle parking lot.   Did find an FOY Western Grebe way over amongst those drowned saplings across the lake..   Mike gave up, and returned to the car, but it wasn't long before I started giving him the thumbs up.   Finally, after a good hour plus at the lake, I found the female Long-tailed Duck, diving alone, over towards the dam area of the lake.   It probably spent 60 to 70 percent of the time, if not 90% of the time under water, coming up ever-so-briefly, and dove again.   But we both did get good looks at the duck.   She dove too fast for digiscoping to work, and I'd left my camera at home, by mistake, so no photographic documentation.
All sightings in eBird.   Thanks to the spotters, it's always a treat to find that duck.   Congrats to Tom too, on #300!.

A summer tanager has been in our yard checking out the grape jelly in the oriole feeder. As I watched him, he figured out how to fly up from beneath the suet feeder and he was able to eat that also.

Subject: [NEBirds] a peeking Sora
Nebraska birders,

On April 21, Lanny and I birded in Howard County. Lanny has
already posted a message about our day but I want to tell you
the story behind one of the sightings.

We stumbled upon a flooded field a few miles south of Dannebrog.
We saw several shorebirds so Lanny got out the scope on the
tripod. I stayed in the car and used the scope on a window
mount. After a few enjoyable minutes watching yellowlegs, I got
out of the car and unintentionally flushed a couple birds from
the flooded road ditch. One of the birds flew far away but the
other dove back into the vegetation along the fence line. I
stood still for awhile and focused on the spot where the bird
went down.

I saw something move in the tall grass so I looked through my
binoculars and saw a Sora peaking out from behind a fence post.
I could see its black face and yellow bill. We looked at each
other for several seconds and then the Sora just disappeared
like magic. I feel very lucky to have gotten a close view of
a species that is usually only heard.

Subject: [NEBirds] Omaha mockingbird and other migrants
On Fri May 3, I spent 9 hours birding and hiked 8+ miles (including the full 7-mile trip around Lake Zorinsky) in the Omaha area. Highlights are listed below. All sites are in Douglas County.


Towl Park (93rd & Center) was relatively birdless at 9:30am:


Northern Waterthrush - 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler - 1 (exact count)
Orange-crowned Warbler - 1
Baltimore Oriole - pair


Walnut Grove Park (150th & Q):


Black-and-white Warbler - 2
Yellow-rumped Warbler - numerous
Orange-crowned Warbler - 1
Marsh Wren - 1 (just north of the spillway foraging low)
Swainson's Thrush - 5


Lake Zorinsky (156th to 180th between Center & Q) - if you stay away from the paved bike path, there are some fantastic birding spots; I tallied 55 species.


Great Egret - 1
Sora - 1 (heard only)
Least Flycatcher - 1
Eastern Kingbird - 1
Western Kingbird - 1
Sedge Wren - 5
Marsh Wren - 1
Gray Catbird - 1
Northern Mockingbird - 1 (see details below)
Nashville Warbler - 1
Orange-crowned Warbler - 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler - numerous
Common Yellowthroat - 1 male
Sparrows - Field, Clay-colored, Chipping, White-throated, Song, Lincoln's, Swamp - all with multiple sightings


The mockingbird was in a mowed field between two groves of trees. Since I wasn't on the paved path, it's hard to describe exactly where it was. It was west of Bauermeister Prairie, probably about half way between 156th and 168th Streets. It was south of the paved bike trail and could probably have been seen from there. It was behaving somewhat like a kingbird, perching on weed stalks a foot off the ground and then flying down to the ground. It flew some distance a couple times, so I could see the white wing patches. I didn't have my camera with me, and my cell phone photos didn't turn out. Until this spring, it had been years since I had seen a mockingbird in NE, and now I have seen two so far this spring.


Good birding - Rick

On May 1 the Ratzlaffs and I birded in the Lincoln area (Lancaster County). We went to Holmes Lake (HL), Wilderness Park (WP), Pioneers Park (PP), Lincoln Saline Wetlands (SW), Oak Creek Lake (OC) and Jack Sinn WMA (JS). At the end of the day, we tallied 99 species. If we had been counting all along, we certainly would have stayed out long enough to find #100. Highlights were:


Ring-necked Duck (2 drakes at SW)
Hooded Merganser (2 hens at OC)
American Wigeon (pair at JS)
Great Egret (1 at OC)
Snowy Egret (2 at OC)
Little Blue Heron (2 at HL)
Green Heron (1 at PP)
White-faced Ibis (1 at JS)
Black-crowned Night Heron (at least 9 at SW)
Sora (at least 20 heard/seen at SW - but certainly more were present)
Wilson's Phalarope (~25 at JS)
Long-billed Dowitcher (~75 at JS)
Semi-palmated Plover (1 at JS)
Semi-palmated Sandpiper (3 at JS)
Least Sandpiper (2 at JS)
Pectoral Sandpiper (1 at JS)
Lesser Yellowlegs (~20 at JS)
Franklin's Gull (~25 flying over SW)
Forster's Tern (1 at HL and 1 at OC)
Western Kingbird (1 at HL)
Eastern Kingbird (4 at HL)
Red-breasted Nuthatch (2 at PP visiting a hole in a dead pine)
Gray Catbird (1 seen and heard at WP)
Marsh Wren (3 at SW and 1 at JS)
Sedge Wren (2 at JS)
Warbling Vireo (1 at HL and 1 at PP)
Blue-headed Vireo (1 at PP)
Swainson's Thrush (2 at HL and 1 at PP)
Palm Warbler (1 at HL)
Yellow Warbler (1 at HL)
Common Yellowthroat (3 males at SW)
Yellow-rumped Warbler (everywhere)
Orange-crowned Warbler (1 at HL, 3 at PP, 1 at SW)
Yellow-headed Blackbird (~10 at SW)


And lastly, we had the "swallow sweep" (all six species):


Purple Martin (2 at PP)
Cliff Swallow (1 at JS)
Bank Swallow (1 at OC)
Northern Rough-winged Swallow (1 at PP)
Tree Swallow (numerous at JS)
Barn Swallow (common everywhere)

Minatare Rd) and Tree Swallows.

There was a good number of Yellow-rumped Warblers around, probably a lot
more than I was able to keep track of. Also, more Wood Ducks than I have
ever seen out there before, and more than I counted on this list. I would
guess there was close to 30 around the shores of the lake and more in the
trees that I could hear but not see.

Subject: [NEBirds] Dark Island Trail Apr 28
Nebraska birders,

On Sunday, April 28, Lanny and I birded part of Dark Island Trail
south of Central City in Hamilton County. The trail starts
near Central City and ends about nine miles south, near Marquette.
We birded the part between highway 66 and the Platte River.
Below our list of highlights are some details.

6 House Wrens FOY
35 White-throated Sparrows
28 Orange-crowned Warblers FOY
13 Ruby-crowned Kinglets FOY
19 Yellow-rumped Warblers, Myrtle
4 Pine Siskins
2 Lincoln’s Sparrows
1 Swainson’s Thrush FOY
100 Franklin’s Gulls

For some odd reason, someone butchered the bushes on both sides
of the trail all along the part that we walked. In spite of the
loss of habitat, there were many birds. The weather was cold
and windy. We bundled-up as if it was winter. We forgot about
the weather when we started seeing the birds. Our numbers are
estimates, probably on the low side.

I usually see warblers way up high in the tree tops. On this day,
however, the tree tops were being whipped by strong wind and the
warblers were down low. We even saw a couple Yellow-rumped
Warblers foraging on the ground. We did not get ‘warbler’ neck
this time. We did not add any new species to our county lists
today but we sure had fun.

Other birds that we saw on this day included an Osprey at the
Platte River bridge south of Gibbon. We saw around one hundred
Yellow-headed Blackbirds in wet meadows near Audubon’s Rowe
Sanctuary. At our home north of Minden, we saw four Harris’s
Sparrows and a Brown Thrasher.

Subject: [NEBirds] Boone County
No ebird

We left early this morning to bird Boone County. It started slow but we had a continuous flow of birds till we quit at 1:30. We ended adding 14 FOS birds and I added 17 to my Boone County list. Highlights:

FOS:
Swainson’s Thrush - 1
Semipalmated Plover - 20+
Wilson’s Phalarope - several
Willet - 3
Forester’s Tern - 15
Spotted Sandpiper - 1
Black-bellied Plover - 3
Swamp Sparrow - 1
Common Yellowthroat - 1
Grasshopper Sparrow - 3
Wilson’s Snipe - 2
Cliff Swallow - 6
Audubon’s Warbler - 1 (gorgeous bird with bright yellow cap and throat)
Sora - 4 (they walked around in the cattails about 20 feet from us as long as we watched)

Others of note:
Eastern Phoebe
Am. Avocet - 50+/-
Eared Grebe - 3
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 3
Baird’s Sandpiper - 2
Solitary Sandpiper - 7
Canvasback - 5
Several common duck species
11 species of Sparrows

Close to home we had a single Broad-winged Hawk

Overall we only saw one each of three raptors all day. Surprising...

Nice morning checking out the wetlands - lots of shorbs...nothing "unusual"
but best birds included lots LB Dowitchers, 1 Hudsonian Godwit, lesser and
greater Yellowlegs, LOTS of Semipalmated Plovers, lots of swimming Wilson's
Phalaropes - doing their circle swim feeding - even got a video :), still a
few Wilson's Snipe, Killdeer, Ibis flying away, apparently LOTS of Sora,
but they were in the thick cattails - I never saw any, but their whinny
call was everywhere. FOY for me, a Yellow Warbler, a couple of
Orange-crowned Warblers, 1 American Pipit. Probably the best birds for me
today,were both Sedge Wrens and Marsh Wrens. The Sedge Wrens (2) were
paler than the Marsh Wren, without the bolder eye brow, and darker crown.
Birding is sure looking up!

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

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/mapping-songs-with-google-maps.html

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

There is also a link to a recent national Audubon Society story on this research.

Subject: [NEBirds] RFI — Lake Ogallala very large, dark “LBBG” report
There’s been an interesting gull report on eBird from Lake Ogallala.. Yesterday, Stephen Brenner and several other birders reported an adult Lesser Black-backed that they describe as being as big as a Herring, and larger and darker-mantled than a sub-adult Lesser Black-backed that was also present. Boni Edwards has photos of the sub-adult, and it already looks bulky and dark. Which means the adult must have been quite huge and nearly jet-black. I do wonder if this adult could be something else, such as a Great Black-backed or even a Kelp Gull...
Does anyone have any more info on this sighting, or photos of the bird? I’m thinking of heading out there tomorrow to check it out, but would rather not if it is in fact just a biggish and darkish LBBG!
Thanks!

Subject: [NEBirds] today in Madison County
I wasn't able to spend a whole lot of time outside today, but the day still yielded some good birds. On my way to meet a landowner between Norfolk and Madison this morning, I observed a Loggerhead Shrike and a small group of American Avocets along 831 Rd just east of Highway 81. Just a bit south and east of this location I saw a Say's Phoebe on a pasture fence, which was a new county bird for me.

My family and I took a walk along the trail on the east side of Ta-Ha-Zouka Park this evening. The best bird was a Peregrine Falcon, but other highlights included a Lincoln's Sparrow, a couple of small flocks of White-Throated Sparrows, House Wrens, and an Orange-crowned Warbler.

Full eBird checklists will be entered later tonight.

Subject: [NEBirds] Holmes Lk goodies gratitude
Thanks Ruthie for sharing those Little Blue Herons at Holmes Lake - due to your timely post, we were able to admire them in sunny conditions, what beautiful creatures and then to see a pair - what a treat! And we weren't the only fans, a steady stream of birders were able to enjoy watching them forage and loaf in the same area by that SE park entrance. The one with the slightly lighter-colored head in direct sunlight seemed a bit more petite and a google search indicated that males are slightly larger so maybe they're mates?



Didn't have Ruthie's fortune today of tracking down Steve K.'s awesome Pine Warbler discovery but fortunately were able to glimpse it yesterday evening with Noah in the SW corner of the gulf course parking lot and then chased it as it worked its way around the parking lot perimeter to the NW corner where it ditched us.

I now have the checklist attached, with photos, and a media recording of the song of the Pine Warbler, which I saw at 8am in the Golf Course Parking lot.   https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55556478

First bird was the Pine Warbler, later found a Green Heron, Bank Swallow, Palm Warblers by the long plum thicket on the south side of the lake, up above, and the two Little Blue Herons at the entrance to the park on the south side.   They are in that inlet right there, one was still in the tree by the picnic table as you walked the lake edge from the first parking lot, and the other just across the inlet from there, to the NE, along the shore.   I'd mentioned on the checklist the beaks were a bit yellow, but the pics show all gray.  
Very windy conditions.

Subject: [NEBirds] Nemaha county birds
Mike and I set out yesterday morning after early breakfast, in the cold, gray, windy morning, to look for county birds for Nemaha County.   Since most of my county birding had been done in the past at Indian Cave State Park, I was going to have to go somewhere different, and waterfowl, sparrows, and shorebirds were a likely target for the day.   
Headed first to the Wetlands and Prairies at the Nemaha/Otoe County Line, south of Talmage.  Brr those cold winds.   But persistence paid off after heading both west and then east along the dirt/gravel roads north of the wetlands.   Found eleven county birds, including FOY Lark Sparrows, and easy waterfowl to find,  like the BW Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall, Blue-winged Teal, PB Grebe, DC Cormorant, along with three American Wigeon in a plowed field, and RNPheasants.   Another sparrow find was Savannah's...but there were plenty of other sparrows to be found as well.   What was cool was driving that dirt road to the east of the highway, north of the wetlands, and a flock of Long-billed dowitchers were seen (another county find) as well as Green-winged Teal.   Other shorebirds were Pectoral Sandpipers, Greater Yellowlegs, and Killdeer.   Here's the eBird List.  https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55506206
We then decided we needed to head towards Indian Cave, as it was getting later in the morning.  We got detoured, or waylayed, or distracted by a sign to a park called Coryell Park south of Brock, which dang, if you haven't been there, what an unusual park in a nice setting.   Absolutely a billion grounded Chipping Sparrows in there, plus a nice FOY Black-and-White Warbler in the branches above the creek that ran through the park.  Lots of sparrows here too.   https://ebird.org/MyEBird?cmd=list&rtype=loc&r=L5878278&time=year
We then got distracted again from getting right to Indian Cave, by decided to see the flooding in Brownsville, and were surprised to see we could drive that road that goes by Cooper Nuclear Station.   Found three new county birds as a result of that drive, including such great finds as American Coot, Franklin's Gulls, and Great-tailed Grackles.  Later enroute to Indian Cave found this elusive Nemaha County bird, a pair of Mallards.   
Finally made it to Indian Cave after lunch, well actually I was eating my sandwich as I walked up that first spot in the loop trail, at the first parking lot...and found an FOY Blue-headed Vireo there, at least one Northern Parula, and........ready?.....that Ding-Donged Hairy Woodpecker, my elusive 2019 FOY and a Nemaha County new bird to boot.   Walking down the loop road to the bottom yielded another county bird, a Northern Waterthrush, and down at St. Deroin, Spotted Sandpipers and Wood Ducks for the last of my new Nemaha County birds.   Here's just one list from Indian Cave, the loop drive.   https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55521168   At the top of the hill heard a Barred Owl.   Down by the cave and the rushing Missouri River were at least one more Northern Parula.  
The tally for new Nemaha County birds was 20, and my list now stands at 125..  
On the way home checked out Duck Creek RA northwest of Peru.   Interesting place where you'd not expect it, and an area if you drove around the county roads, the rolling hills and burr oak rimmed creeks might yield some interesting birds, but it was late-ish and we were tired and hungry.   

A fine day, despite the cold temps.

Subject: [NEBirds] Shared Birds with a guest
After having a very successful program Friday evening (4-26-19) with
Noah Strycker as the speaker and 266 attendees,
I spent several days birding locally with Noah.

At Lake Wanahoo in Saunders County highlights were:
- 270+ American Golden Plovers (Noah's reaction was that this was more
AMGP than his total life list of AMGP)
- Semipalmated Plovers
- Hudsonian Godwit (not a common sight on the west coast)
- Vesper Sparrow

Fontenelle Forest (on 4-27-19) highlights were:
- Blue-headed Vireo
- Great Egret (fly over)
- Broad-winged Hawk (gave us a nice circle to show us his/her banded tail)
- Perched Cooper's Hawk

Wehrspann Lake (on 4-27-19) highlights:
- Oodles of Sparrows - Lincoln, Harris's, Field, Savannah,
White-throated, Swamp, Song
- Palm, Yellow-rumped, Orange-crowned and Nashville Warblers (multiple
numbers of most of these)
- Rough-winged Swallows
- Osprey carrying a fish

Offutt AFB area (4-28-19) BUT not the Base Lake. West side of Harlan
Lewis Drive - highlights:
- 100+ Lesser Yellowlegs
- Wilson's Phalaropes
- Common Yellowthroat

Walnut Creek Lake Recreation Area (4-28-19) highlights
- Baltimore Oriole (not in Oregon)
- Bank Swallows
- Yellow Warbler
- Yellow-rumped Warblers were so thick we almost had to push them out of
our way to walk!

Prairie Queen Recreation Area (4-28-19) highlights:
- Northern Waterthrush (very nice looks at it)
- Least Flycatcher
- 4 warbler species seen previously and listed above

Finally as I am getting ready to dump Noah off at the airport I decided
we should take a run around Carter Lake and
not much there but lo and behold we saw 5 FORSTER'S TERNS. As I turned
onto Abbott Drive by the airport Noah said
stop! there is a duck on the water and as he looked through my rear
window he said it was a female Common Goldeneye - then
as I stop to get his luggage out at the airport he entered his duck
sighting to e-birds and got a reply that COGO are rare this
time of year in Nebraska. That got him even more excited that it was
rare and a new state bird for him. So that is how he left and
walked into the terminal with a big smile on his face.

Subject: [NEBirds] Weekend birding
This week/weekend I did some birding in Scotts Bluff, Banner and Kimball
Counties.

April 25th

FOY Yellow-rumped Warblers and Spotted Towhees along Old Stage Hill Rd in
the Wildcat Hills



April 27th

FOY Chipping Sparrows and Loggerhead Shrike along Wright's Gap

Large flocks of Brewer's Blackbirds, Yellow-headed Blackbirds and
Brown-headed Cowbirds at Banner County feedlot

5 Burrowing Owls in the prairie dog town west of the feed lot. I've been
having trouble finding Burrowing Owls this spring so was happy to see these.
The only others I have seen are 2 at the South Morrill prairie dog town.

FOY Cliff Swallows at Morrill River Bridge



April 28 ( Kimball County with Bonnie Edwards)

FOY Western Kingbirds and Savanah Sparrow south of Kimball , we also saw a
couple of kingbirds south of Exit 1 that may have been Cassin's. Waiting for
pics. I did head a Cassin's Kingbird in the pines

FOY Swainson's Thrush at Bushnell cemetery

FOY Spotted Sandpiper at Oliver Reservoir

Best bird of the day, Northern Parula that I saw off the south end of the
dam at Oliver.

We saw at least 8 Loggerhead Shrikes within about 20 miles. Seemed like
there was one every two miles or so.

Mountain Plovers and McCown's Longspurs (didn't find any Chestnut Collared
Longspurs today)

Vesper Sparrows are all over the place right now



FOY Northern Rough-winged Swallows at Pumpkin Creek, Banner County

I’m with you! Except the winds here in Hastings were gusting above 50mph from first light onward. Still, I was happy to see a tight little pack of 4 (FOY) Orange-crowned Warblers at my backyard birdbath, plus the 3 Lincoln’s, 4 Harris’s and 1 White-throated Sparrow that have been hanging around all week. Yesterday I also had (FOY) Brown Thrasher and E. Kingbird.

Subject: [NEBirds] Leucistic Grackle at Fort Kearney SRA? I
I was walking the nature trail along the south edge of the park and noticed
a dark bird with a light colored head in the field with some grackles and
blackbirds. Decided it likely was a leucistic common grackle. The head,
neck and chest was actually white but the eyes and beak were normal color.
On the chest there were black spots in the white. The rest of the body
appeared normal color. Very striking looking bird.

Subject: [NEBirds] Not your average day at the office (fallout)
The stiff north wind starting midmorning today tdropped a lot of birds out of the sky at Flanagan Lake.


Most remarkable were the dozens and dozens of yellow-rumped warblers blanketing the lakeshore on the north side. I counted 131 but there were at least 200. Many were in the prairie grass next to tree belts.


The north end of the lake itself was blanketed by dozens and dozens of swallows.


Other highlights:


- 5 Palm Warblers
- 1 Peregrine Falcon migrating against the wind just off the deck
- 130 Franklin's Gulls doing the same thing.
- An early Eastern Kingbird


In ebird but more importantly in the memory bank as a special day!

Later walked Wilderness Park at Saltillo. Just the usual stuff. The heron rookery has moved further east from where I used to see it in there a few years ago.
