Subject: No sighting - one year ago today, an Edgism
I had a memory from my journal pop up today. One year ago today Yvonne Homeyer and I were in Southeast Arizona. We met up with Edge Wade and Claire Wheeler at the Patagonia Roadside park to see the Rose-throated Becard. On the way out I heard a bird I couldn’t identify. Edge was asking me what it sounded like because she didn't hear it. I said it reminded me of angry Red-eyed Vireo. Edge says to me “does it sound like it’s saying What the Hell’s the matter with you?” I said “that’s exactly what it sounded like!” Edge says, “it’s a Bell’s Vireo”. That, my friends, is an Edgism! Every time I hear a Bell’s Vireo I know exactly what it is and I replay this moment over in my head. Priceless! Thank you for blessing me with such a wonderful Memory Edge.

Subject: MBS Fall Meeting--Registration for Friday Field Trips


The original Fall Meeting information on the website had a couple glitches, now corrected. The two Friday field trips were not displayed correctly, and sign-up for them was missing. This message is to address those shortcomings.



The Friday afternoon field trips to Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area beginning at 1:00 p.m. meeting on site at the north lake parking lot, and the Bradford Farm trip beginning at 2:00 p.m. leaving from the Poehlmann Center on Bradford Farm both begin before official registration opens at 3:00 p.m. at the Poehlmann Center.



Confirmed sign-up for these two trips (you can only do one, as they are concurrent) will be conducted as follows:



If you have already registered online for the MBS 2022 Fall Meeting and wish to go on the Friday afternoon field trip to either Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area beginning at 1:00 p.m., or the Friday afternoon field trip at Bradford Farm beginning at 2:00 p.m., email me by return email and that will be your registration for the field trip.



If you have not already registered for the meeting, you may sign up for one of these field trips online as part of your registration and that will be your confirmed reservation for the field trip.



Thank you for your patience and looking forward to seeing you,



Edge Wade

MBS President

Subject: No Sighting - Birds in the Glacier NP Area
We just spent a week in and around Glacier National Park. I didn’t doing any specific birding, but like most of us, I kept my camera close and was always looking around.

A couple interesting observations:
1) Our rental had a gorgeous, heavily-wooded backyard. It was interesting to listen to and observe their resident birds:
lots of red-breasted nuthatches very active in the morning, lots of pine siskins active in the evening and lots of mountain chickadees active all day. There were also cedar waxwings (seen and heard) and possibly red crossbills (only heard). We also had several juvenile rufous hummingbirds visit the feeder.

2) In the park, I saw an American Dipper in a rapids - such a cool little bird - and three female common mergansers, chasing minnows at Lake McDonald.

3) One day, we drove to Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Along the way we went through Libby, MT, which bills itself as the “City of Eagles” and have erected a series of very large, beautiful steel sculptures of eagles - pretty amazing. We saw 5 while driving through - one with a 40ft wing span!

4) In Bonners Ferry, we spotted an osprey on a wire over the Kootenai River. It turned out to be a female, with a nearby nest of 3 juveniles, and a male osprey hunting fish. It did catch one and flew to the nest with it. Always neat to see that.

Subject: White ibis at otter slough
There was an immature white ibis today at Otter Slough. From the Frog Pond Rd I went left on the 2-track between ponds 14 & 15. The ibis was in a clump of willow trees with some cattle egrets and LBHs. I didn’t continue down that road very far cuz I didn’t want to flush the big group of over 100 ardeids that were up ahead. But the ibis was relatively close to the frog pond road junction.

Subject: Sunday at Hi Loesome
It was another beautiful morning at Hi Lonesome. A large group of Northern
Roughwings were apparently staging and flying about--I would estimate 100
or more. However, they were not exactly at Hi Lonesome and thus were not
counted.
A rather unexpected species was detected by Merlin, and it was the Sedge
Wren. They seemed to be all over the place. Another notable sighting was
two male Orchard Orioles. Beautiful. A small covey of quail flew up
alongside the road (Lumpee Avenue). I saw them again in the evening when
my niece and I went out to view the colorful sumac. The sumac is turning
all sorts of oranges and reds. I've been advised it is likely because they
are dying as a result of application of chemicals in an attempt to control
it. Whatever the cause, the scene is rather spectacular.
Merlin also picked up an Upland Sandpiper, but I never heard it nor did I
see it.
Happy Birding,

Today five of us were kayaking the lower Elk River. We were near Cedar Bluff when we spotted a Swallow-tailed Kite soaring overhead. We watched it for 45 minutes to an hour. It was flying with several turkey vultures. What a great surprise!

Subject: Re: Hummingbird gorging on watermelon!
Daily fluctuations in hummer numbers during August and September are most likely due to waves of birds passing through in migration. Some take one drink and continue southward, while others may stay a few days to add fat reserves. Few of today's adult birds are the same individuals you saw day before yesterday. First-brood immature birds are starting to move now as well.

It's hard to believe this pattern at first, since they all look and behave much the same, but last year I never saw more than 3 hummingbirds in my yard at one time, and typically only a single visitor. Yet I banded over 100 hummers over the season, most of them between early July and Labor Day. The daily turnover is staggering, but without banding/marking individuals it's not obvious at all.

Subject: Hummingbird gorging on watermelon!
Pictures available. Email me!

Sorry I can't upload but this young fella had a blast. And, before any one
guesses fruitflies etc., understand we are in a terrible drought and THERE
AREN'T FLYING BUGS! Even the horse and her manure have no flies. There are
a couple ants but he showed no interest in them.

For about forty minutes he sipped in 3 sec suctions on a spherical slice of
fresh seedless water melon sitting on a plastic lid. First he was
puncturing the flesh then ended up almost smashing his bill flat and
coating his chin and gorget with red.

His bill can be seen thru the thin side wall of plastic lid the fruit is
sitting on. Buried in the released juice.

I'll include a picture of the fruit where the bill pierced and then finally
collapsed a whole section.

Fascinating behavior. With 1:4 syrup a foot away.

Ironically I have observed this multiple times over my years here. And at
one point thought I had a "different" hummer because of a pink chin. Mis
diagnosed as having red dye on the chin.

Maybe this is the kind of versatility required in drought conditions. At
one point instead of my usual half dozen I had 30-40. Then one set of
downbursts late one evening and the next morning back to 6-10.

I know that flowers didn't open over night and most likely bugs didn't pop
out. I'd have to say the presence of water made the difference.

Trying to make a difference,

It has not been seen since Thursday. After taking with volunteers at the
Nature Center, it seems like it had been present since at least Aug 6, but
birders we’re not notified until Thursday morning (Aug 11). There is a lot
of habitat along Lake Springfield and the James River, so it may still be

Paul McKenzie reports two immature White Ibis in Pool 14, BUT DO NOT WALK STRAIGHT IN from upper trail as that will flush everything..

Paul says, when the road splits from the north end, stay left, past the soybean field through the line of trees that separates Poole 14 and 15. You'll see water on the right. He's made a path through the thick vegetation that will lead to easy viewing of the ibis and 8 species of shorebirds (all commonly expected).

Subject: White ibis - EBCA
Paul McKenzie has confirmed 2 immature white ibis in pool 14 at Eagle
Bluffs. Last evening I saw what I suspected to be 2 imm white ibis but was
unable to get close enough to be certain. Paul went out early this
morning, relocated them and was able to confirm with photos (thank you!)

Instructions: from north end of pool 14 (turn-about at end of the loop
road) walk in following the 2-track path. Veer left at the fork (toward
creek and pool 15) until you get view of open water and collection of
herons, egrets, shorebirds. Both last night and this mornings ibis were
with this grouping.

Paul warns to NOT wade through marsh for better photo nor walk straight out
the 2-track as in both cases you will flush birds.

Subject: Re: Greene County Limpkin
Thanks for the observation of the mussel -- I'm interested in knowing more
about what these roaming Limpkins are eating in Missouri. I'd appreciate
hearing about other observations -- or better yet, even photos for the
Bluebird.

Hi,
Can you ID this bird for me. I am no good at this.
I presume it is some sort of flycatcher.
It was seen recently at Busch in St.Charles county.

For those thinking of going the gates to the parking lot open at 8:00am,
but you can park on the road outside the gate and walk around the gate. I
go down often to visit relatives and they wake up later than me so I often
go to the nature center first to walk or bird watch. If anyone goes on
Sunday the center itself recently has been closed on Sundays but the gates
are still opened at 8.

The bird was still there at about 3:30pm when I viewed it with my wife and many other birders. If you print up a map of the Spingield Nature center we viewed it from both the Long Trail bridge over lake Spingfield (which is actually just a very narrow shallow creek ) and from the Sycamore cutoff trail which connects the Long trail to the boardwalk trail.I think during the course of the day it was seen in both directions from the bridge and during a couple times was actually up on the trail.
I also learned from a nature center volunteer that this bird has been seen since August 6th which I think would make this bird very chaseable for tommorrow.
I have also wondered what the Limpkins have been eating in Missouri this summer since their main food in florida is apple snails. I and other birders observed this guy pull out a large freshwater mussel. I do not know if he crushed it to get to the meat or was able to pry it open but he later appeared to be dining on the contents of the shell.

Subject: American Avocets and Black Tern near Jefferson Barracks Bridge
I'm sorry I'm posting this one day late. I don't know if American Avocets and Black Tern are still there today. Yesterday I birded along Levee Rd and nearby areas, and all of these were very close to the city of Columbia, Illinois. I reported four American Avocets, one Black Tern, and some other shorebirds. There may be more Least Sandpipers I missed when I scanned for Buff-breasted Sandpipers and did not find any. See my e-bird checklist. This location has not yet been designated an e-bird hotspot. I prefer one e-bird checklist for one whole area. By the way, this area has not been well birded this summer.

David Dean, Doug Homert and I struck out on the Wood Stork from the Overlook past May Lake at Mingo this Morning. We arrived on sight about 8am to find Tim Bars\ksdale who had not see the bird previous to our arrival either. We stayed over an hour, no luck although Tim Did point out an Anhinga. Tim was there the previous evening with Christian Hawn and had no luck on the WOST then either. Tim mentioned about 300 egrets were visible when they came to roost and were visible from the overlook the previous evening as the sun went down. That may be the best time to check for the stork

Subject: NO SIGHTING: Summer Seasonal Report information request
The ornithological summer season is June 1 – July 31, and now that it has
ended, I’m requesting that you send me your significant sightings for the
period.


EXAMPLES OF SIGNIFICANT SIGHTINGS:



* any species listed as "rare", "casual", or "accidental" on the Annotated
Checklist of Missouri Birds: *http://mobirds.org/MBRC/MOChecklist.asp
<http://mobirds.org/MBRC/MOChecklist.asp> *.



*unusually early or late dates (check Mark Robbins' 'The Status and
Distribution of Birds in Missouri,'
*https://kuscholarworks.ku.edu/handle/1808/26287
<https://kuscholarworks.ku.edu/handle/1808/26287>*)



*unusually high or low counts



PHOTOS – I especially want photos of your significant birds. If you put
the photos in an eBird checklist, I can download them from it, but I will
need your permission to use the photos in the Bluebird.


Otherwise, high-resolution images can be e-mailed in JPEG format. Please
include the location, date, and photographer’s name with each photo.


HOW TO REPORT:


If you reported the bird in eBird, you can just send me a link to the
checklist page (with a statement that I can use the photos, if applicable).




If it’s not in eBird, please include the following information:

1) Species

2) Number observed

3) Age/Sex (if known)

4) County

5) Location (i.e. park, residence, city, etc.)

6) Date

7) Observer (s)


OTHER INFO:



I’m also interested in information about unusual weather events, flooding,
and any other conditions affecting habitat in your area during June and
July.



The data you provide is used to produce the regional report published in
the American Birding Association's "journal of record for birders," North
American Birds; and a summary of sightings is also published in the ASM's
quarterly publication, The Bluebird.



Your sightings should be either submitted directly to me or in the ebird
public output in order to be considered for inclusion in the final seasonal
report. Sightings posted only to MOBIRDS-L will not be included in the
report.



Please send your sightings to me at one of the addresses below before
August 31. I will reply to each e-mail to confirm receipt.



email: *<agathman...> <agathman...>*



Mailing address: PO Box 1, Pocahontas, MO 63779



Thanks!

  Very saddened to hear about Charlene's passing,
Can't count the number of  e-mails and phone calls we would exchange about the birds showing up around St Louis for almost 23 years.Mainly Castlewood SP.
 I used to  live just a few miles down the road from Castlewood and would often run into  Charlene while  there. We used to have a kind of fun competition between us on who would find the first returning waterthrush to the St Louis area.
I would start looking along Kiefer creek in early March while Charlene would check out Rockwoods and Babler SP.Would get a 2 word e-mail"beat ya"letting me know I lost again,haha or the times we would exchange "top secret"long-eared and saw-whet locations in St Louis County and not to disclose "under penalty of  death" ,hahaha

Really miss those days  Thank you Charlene for the all great bird info you gave me over the years,You will be missed!

There's a nice variety of shorebirds along Confluence Road this afternoon.
The two large pools just before the State Park sign have Yellowlegs,
Dowitchers, Stilt Sandpiper, Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers and (perhaps
the cutest shorebird around) Semipalmated Plovers. Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Subject: Activities in our Kirksville Yard
Several activities of note in the yard the last few days;
1) Lots of juvenile rose-breasted grosbeaks. An adult male was feeding several of them above a feeder. We haven’t been seeing many baltimore orioles - not sure why.

2) Hummingbird numbers have started to increase. An adult male is guarding one of the feeders, chasing the juveniles away. He’s got 2 favorite perches that he watches from, providing easy photo opportunities. I looked at last year, and the adult males stayed around until Sept 9th. So the next month should be fun.

3) Yesterday, we had a beautiful indigo bunting in what I call Millers Field, a 1.5 acre wildflower area. This is the 1st time I’ve seen one actually in the field, rather than the nearby tree lines. I think the shrubby habitat, flowers going to seed and berry-producing bushes are enticing them onto our property. Supposedly they like elderberries, which are not yet ripe, but we have 22 bushes spread around the property, with lots of green berries right now.

4) The arrowwood viburnum berries are now ripe and the birds are devouring them. If you’re looking for a large berry-producing bush, this is a good one. We have 18 spread around our property.

5) Although not a bird, some of you might be interested. A female monarch was laying eggs on swamp milkweed in Millers Field. Here’s something to watch for - if you see a butterfly fluttering around the leaves of a plant, it’s probably laying eggs. This one was laying an egg on the bottom of a flower, not yet in bloom. August and early Sept is a big time for monarch caterpillars here and mid-Sept is when they migrate through on their way to their Mexico overwintering site. Great flowers to support them during migration are annual zinnias and two blazing star species, rough blazing star and eastern blazing star, both of which bloom later in Sept than the more common blazing star. The monarchs really seem to like them.

Subject: Re: No sighting: Question about purchased humingbird nectar
Hi Jo Ann,

I've always been told to just use 4 parts water and 1 part sugar. The store bought nectar is mainly a marketing ploy, as homemade sugar water is just as effective and more than likely healthier for the hummingbirds. If you use the pre-made nectar make sure there are no preservatives or chemical dyes in them. If your hummingbirds aren't enjoying your nectar, I would suggest switching to homemade sugar water. It's easy and cheaper on the wallet. The most important thing, especially this time of year is to make sure the nectar stays fresh. In this heat you need to change out the nectar every 1-2 days to avoid spoiling.

Here is a helpful youtube video by Mark McKellar on this topic:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ8bQQ3f690

He is an Ornithologist and owns the Backyard Bird Center in Kansas City.


Hope that helps and good luck!

To simplify things, I use bakers sugar, which is just a finer form of granulated sugar and which dissolves much more quickly.

To 1 part bakers sugar, I add 3 parts hot water from the tap and stir, then add 1 part hot water from the tap which was also warmed in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir and cool in refrigerator.

The bakers sugar dissolved much more easily than bulk sugar.

Hummingbirds want sucrose from a feeder, period. Just white granulated
sugar and ordinary tapwater in a 1:4 syrup. No dye, no fruit juice, no
preservatives, no honey, no brown or brownish sugar. All premixes are a
ripoff, and potentially unhealthy, no matter what the advertising says. No
need to boil, as the bacteria that spoil feeder syrup are poked into the
feeder by the birds themselves--nothing you can do about that. Clean the
feeder and change the syrup when it starts getting cloudy, which will
depend on the temperature and the number of visitors, or at the first signs
of black mold.



"Just like flowers" is specious, since every flower species' nectar is
different, the only common ingredients being sucrose and water, plus trace
amounts of various other chemicals and contamination from insects and
windborne dirt. Hummers get all their real nutrition, including fats,
protein, minerals, and amino acids, from the insects and spiders they eat.
Sucrose is mainly energy to hunt bugs, as well as helpful in building fat
reserves.

I looked at a bottle labeled Electronectar recently, out of curiosity, and
its ingredients included sucrose, which is sugar. As to the
electrolytes,I'm unqualified to address that. But that doesn't seem to
deter folks these days, so I'll venture a guess that it's unnecessary.

It was a beautiful morning at Hi Lonesome. The temperature was a perfect
70 degrees, virtually no wind and the skies were overcast. A good number
of birds were vocalizing. Two highlights were a Loggerhead Shrike and a
female Orchard Oriole.
There were more Henslow's Sparrows chirping than I had heard all season,
and fewer Grasshopper Sparrows. Downy/Hair Woodpeckers were feeding on the
mullein stalks. One Bell's Vireo was around the intersection of Lumpee
Avenue and the Rock Island Trail. Still lots of Dickcissels. While I saw
23 Northern Bobwhite's on the 9th of July, I did not see or hear any on
this day.
Complete list is on ebird.
Happy Birding!

Subject: No sighting: Question about purchased humingbird nectar
I was given a gift of "Kaytee Ready To Use Hummingbird ElectroNectar" with
the words on the label, "Naturally Clear Hummingbird Nectar with
Electroytes, Just Like Flowers!"
Actually the hummingbirds didn't seem to like it, although I do not have an
abundance of hummingbirds, but the one or two that came regularly didn't
linger and I threw out a lot of too long in the sun nectar.
Has anyone used this product? And since it doesn't say sugar on the
ingredients, is it an efficient food for the hummingbirds to "fatten-up" on
before migration? I would welcome comments. Thank you.

I disagreed with Charlene twice on bird ID's. Never again was I so foolish! She generously shared what I had missed on both ID's and when I checked reference books later I found that she was correct. I learned that it was no surprise that was the case. Charlene's knowledge base (and Jim's too) of birds, their behavior and habitats was endless. If we had not lived 125 miles apart and I hadn't had a demanding job I would have wanted to have birded with her often. Back in the day of my chasing rare birds we often ended up in the same locations at the same time and would at least get in a quick chat. I've missed that over the last several years.

Jim, and others luck enough to call Charlene a friend, you have my sympathy. Charlene's passing is a loss that reaches far beyond what she would have expected. Sad news indeed.

Mo Birders,

Jim Malone informed me that his wife, Charlene Malone died last night. "She went peacefully," Jim said. But that's not how Charlene lived. She was a force of nature in the St. Louis birding community. For two decades Charlene birded the area from Busch CA to the west to Carlyle Lake to the east from Two Rivers NWR to the north to Baldwin Lake to the south, Charlene was there and often in several places in a day's time.

Few birders could match her keen eye, nor her knowledge of bird song. And in those two decades no one found more "Hot-Line" birds than Charlene did. I remember a day in early April, 2000, when she called in a Black Scoter at Riverlands and within a couple of hours, she called again to report a Ruff on Collinsville Road in nearby Illinois.

Physical infirmities finally caught up with Charlene. She has been inactive for a few years, but there was a time......

I am saddened to hear of any birder's passing in Missouri, though the passing of Charlene sounds like an extra-special one. I wish Jim peace and comfort.

A few of you have chimed in to say that you wished you had birded with Charlene more. I take this opportunity to encourage us all to do that very thing. Let us all be inspired to reach out and make those personal connections and spend more time reveling in nature with one another. To this day, already 2 years after his passing, I wish I'd birded more with my good friend Brad Jacobs. I try not to live with regret, and our son was born and toddling at the time and that was most important. But we should try to hang out with each other more, humbly and gently passing on knowledge (as it sounds like Charlene did, and as our friend Brad did too), making birding mistakes and discoveries together; try to stand next to one another pointing out nature's finer details, closing our eyes into the sunshine on a chilly morning, breathing in the smell of the spring breeze and feeling it on our cheeks, and hearing the birds sing and call and chip. What else is life about, after all?

Happy Friday to all and rest in peace, Charlene.

Subject: Charlene Malone
So very sorry to hear of the passing of Charlene Malone.
When I started birding in the late 80's there was no ebird, I got my birding inormation from the WGNSS bird hotline and then I found MOBIRDS, and Charlene was a prolific poster on the site and I was very appreciative of that fact.
I clearly remember one of her post about Shaw Arberetum (now Shaw Nature Preserve) and she mentioned a Rufous-sided Towhee (now called Eastern Towhee). Being a new birder I had never heard of this bird, looked it up in my Petersons and remember thinking "wow, what a cool bird!" I was soon out at Shaws and found a couple Towhees in short order. A seemingly minor posting about a common bird  but it made my day!
I eventually met Charlene out in the field and got her phone number in order to follow up on her posts for more details. She may have regretted giving me that number as I did not hesitate to call when I had question about a sighting or birds in general. 
Charlene, thanks for the patience you showed me in answering all my questions over the years and helping me to appreciate the birds and the world of birding, which has become so much a part of my life now. I hope I was not too much of a pest.
Rest in Peace.
Dave HaenniDes Peres, MO

Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL] Charlene Malone
I am saddened to hear of any birder's passing in Missouri, though the passing of Charlene sounds like an extra-special one. I wish Jim peace and comfort.

A few of you have chimed in to say that you wished you had birded with Charlene more. I take this opportunity to encourage us all to do that very thing. Let us all be inspired to reach out and make those personal connections and spend more time reveling in nature with one another. To this day, already 2 years after his passing, I wish I'd birded more with my good friend Brad Jacobs. I try not to live with regret, and our son was born and toddling at the time and that was most important. But we should try to hang out with each other more, humbly and gently passing on knowledge (as it sounds like Charlene did, and as our friend Brad did too), making birding mistakes and discoveries together; try to stand next to one another pointing out nature's finer details, closing our eyes into the sunshine on a chilly morning, breathing in the smell of the spring breeze and feeling it on our cheeks, and hearing the birds sing and call and chip. What else is life about, after all?

Happy Friday to all and rest in peace, Charlene.
Sarah

Mo Birders,

Jim Malone informed me that his wife, Charlene Malone died last night. "She went peacefully," Jim said. But that's not how Charlene lived. She was a force of nature in the St. Louis birding community. For two decades Charlene birded the area from Busch CA to the west to Carlyle Lake to the east from Two Rivers NWR to the north to Baldwin Lake to the south, Charlene was there and often in several places in a day's time.

Few birders could match her keen eye, nor her knowledge of bird song. And in those two decades no one found more "Hot-Line" birds than Charlene did. I remember a day in early April, 2000, when she called in a Black Scoter at Riverlands and within a couple of hours, she called again to report a Ruff on Collinsville Road in nearby Illinois.

Physical infirmities finally caught up with Charlene. She has been inactive for a few years, but there was a time......

Subject: Re: Charlene Malone
Connie, thanks for sharing this news ... sad though it is.

I disagreed with Charlene twice on bird ID's. Never again was I so foolish! She generously shared what I had missed on both ID's and when I checked reference books later I found that she was correct. I learned that it was no surprise that was the case. Charlene's knowledge base (and Jim's too) of birds, their behavior and habitats was endless. If we had not lived 125 miles apart and I hadn't had a demanding job I would have wanted to have birded with her often. Back in the day of my chasing rare birds we often ended up in the same locations at the same time and would at least get in a quick chat. I've missed that over the last several years.

Jim, and others luck enough to call Charlene a friend, you have my sympathy. Charlene's passing is a loss that reaches far beyond what she would have expected. Sad news indeed.

So sad to hear.  Her posts out here were so informative.  Really missed her posts when not here.When I lived in the St Louis area we crossed paths a few times but did not know each other by sight or name.  I do remember a morning in Castlewood with Jim just past the railroad bridge where we introduced ourselves.With Charlene my funniest story is I went to see a very rare gull at Saylorville Lake just north of Des Moines.  I noted on the parking lot another car with Missouri plates.  I found a small group of birders and stood with and not long after the gull made its appearance.  Upon returning home I posted the sighting of the gull here on the Listserve and not long after got an Email from Charlene "Steve was that you next to us?".With her knowledge wish I would have birded with her more.  My greatest sympathy to Jim and their family.Steve <GriffawSgg.bluesfan...> Jefferson City MOSent via the Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G, an AT&T 5G smartphone

Mo Birders,

Jim Malone informed me that his wife, Charlene Malone died last night. “She went peacefully,” Jim said. But that’s not how Charlene lived. She was a force of nature in the St. Louis birding community. For two decades Charlene birded the area from Busch CA to the west to Carlyle Lake to the east from Two Rivers NWR to the north to Baldwin Lake to the south, Charlene was there and often in several places in a day’s time.

Few birders could match her keen eye, nor her knowledge of bird song. And in those two decades no one found more “Hot-Line” birds than Charlene did. I remember a day in early April, 2000, when she called in a Black Scoter at Riverlands and within a couple of hours, she called again to report a Ruff on Collinsville Road in nearby Illinois.

Physical infirmities finally caught up with Charlene. She has been inactive for a few years, but there was a time……

Looking at historical records of where the PABU have been observed here in central MO and present-day observations, the locations are mostly quarry site remnants or nearby is/was a quarried area.

If you have access to an area near you or that you know of that was a quarry at some time in the past that has a few young trees (Cottonwood and Black Locust seem to be common here at the Jefferson City locations), you may want to check it out for PABU.

Just a thought with regard to the potential preferred habitat of the MO PABU's.

The Pathways to Wetlands Conservation article features Lincoln County's own Gorski brothers, and also Mary Nemecek - nice photos, excellent article.

The American Burying Beetle feature is excellent.

In my opinion all Missourians can be proud of this beautiful publication - a wonderful use of our tax dollars.

Subject: Alert to the birds
Hello all,

While this is not a report of any incredible rarity within the boundaries
of Missouri, I hope many of you will be excited to receive an update on
various species very close by.

First, I'd like to report a Cole county Mississippi Kite in Jefferson City
just south of Missouri Blvd heading toward the Painted Bunting locations.

My day began with a note that a Swallow-tailed Kite was identified within
100 yards of the Missouri border south of Jane, MO. Sighted from Belle
Vista AR it was heading NE toward the border.

There have been multiple Anhingas either just south of the Bootheel or at
Reelfoot and one now in northern Illinois.

The Mexican Violetear seen for nearly a week in Eureka Springs, AR
disappeared a few days ago. Most of the Violetears seem to head north.
Since Eureka Springs is only 8 air miles south of Missouri and other
individuals have been seen in Kansas and Oklahoma, there are likely a dozen
birds moving near or in our state.

Minnesota has had an incredible year with Abert's & Green-tailed Towhees,
Acorn Woodpecker, and of course- Limpkin.

This is the time when post-breeding dispersal of young herons, spoonbill,
ibis and Wood Stork occurs.

I became practically elated to hear about the Buff-breasted Sandpipers
returning, fall migration of sandpipers is one of the highlights of the
birding year.

Alex Marine has been looking through large numbers of swallows near Shawnee
Trail combing or the elusive Cave Swallow.

Wichita KS has breeding Cassin's Sparrow which begin singing actively in
the monsoon season. Things like this make me wonder how many non-singing
young males are scattered further east.

Meanwhile we have had torrential rains in the St. Louis area so I send my
sincere hopes that all are well and safe there. Hurricane Season is upon us
and although we love the storm-bourne birds, we also hope that no one is
injured or killed due to them.

Anyway, I think the end of summer is about to bring us some very exciting
birds- afterall - Edge is in OZ/!! :) And I think she wished us bodacious
birding in her absence so... Bird On!!

Subject: Re: Not a bird question - Turtles
So…………

The Eastern box turtle (Terrapene carolina carolina) ranges east of the Mississippi river. There are some in Missouri, from people bringing them from Illinois but also historical changes in the flow of the Mississippi-those are seen in some counties of Eastern Missouri bordering the Mississippi.
The three-toed box turtle (Terrapene carolina triunguis) and the ornate box turtle (Terrpene ornata) occur nearly statewide (the ornate isn’t seen in the bootheel generally). The Eastern and three toed look very similar, but the three-toed usually has a ridge down the carapace (the top shell) whereas the ornate does not and the Eastern “doesn’t”

Since you are in Jefferson city Steve, and from your general description it would be the ornate box turtle…..now when everyone looks at the wild box turtles, there may be three, or four toes on the rear feet of the three-toed boxy😊 Very cool-and maybe a life-lister eh?.......... 😊 😊

Hi Steve,

Copying everyone in case others try to respond.

It is probably the common three-toed box turtle. They’re found across the state. The ornate box turtle is the only other box turtle species found in Missouri.

Thank you,

Subject: Not a bird question - Turtles

Saw below my feeder here in Jefferson City a box turtle with bright orange markings. Have never seen one like that before. Looked it up and it appears to be an Eastern Box Turtle. Looked up it's range and it showed up to the Mississippi River but not further west on two different maps. Also a Washington University list of Missouri turtles did not have it on it. So did I get a mega rarity in the turtle world or just not documented?

Alse have had 4-6 regular squirrels where one just now has a wound on the back like I have never seen. I suppose a hawk got a grip on it.

On the bird front all of the regulars...

I know this was not a bird question but it is still nature, Missouri, and a slow time in the birding world so thought I would sneek it in...

Thanks,

Subject: Oak Titmouse
Hi All,

Anybody ever seen an Oak Titmouse here in the STL vicinity? I was biking on
Grant's Trail between Pardee Rd. and Watson and saw a small, chubby bird,
with a tufted crest, with a large eye, like a Tufted Titmouse, except this
bird was mostly brownish-gray all over.

It was hopping around in the grass. Didn't have the chance to hear any bird
call.

It seems unlikely it was an Oak Titmouse according to my guides. Anybody
want to venture a guess as to what it was?

Thanks,

Hi All,

My ceramic bird bath, which I have placed a nice bubbler in, has a hairline
crack and it drips continually. So, I end up filling it up a few times a
day. Not that I mind...but...if I epoxied it, would the residue be toxic
for the birds? And would epoxy even work? That's what I've used to repair
flower pots in the past.

If anyone has any tips, I'd appreciate it!

Subject: Re : 2018 How sparrows learn to sing! Tom Porter look it up! Even utube video
Bob this is a great time for our birding public to realize just how
difficult biological science is.


Bowdoin College has a Kent Island laboratory with Canadian researchers.

My neice attended Bowdoin on her way to a Cornell DVM. She worked on this
study as did many other undergrads. (Research slaves)

This island is dinky and is primarily grassland that's surrounded by water.

It is only under these very limited conditions that we can collect accurate
observational data.

Visualize a small island of grass and rock.

Limited people (researchers only)
Limited predators
Limited hiding places
An extensive bank of records (1964 start I believe)

And groups of trained , skilled observers. Year after. Intrepid I may add.

This is where data turns into knowledge.
Years of writing, sending to colleagues, peer reviews until finally being
published.


Now picture Lost Valley. Your gifted ear can tell quite accurately when
males arrive on territory. You can begin to hear more chips etc as females
arrive.

Followed by mostly silence. At this point keen observers can find nests.

Seeing streaks of bird excrement mean hatching. Lots of adults flying in
and out. Or, walking - those clever grassland birds.
Scolding juveniles (preteens) means
Fledgling.

All of the above is documentable data.
When done year after year it becomes a body of evidence.

Now you again detect more silence. An oxymoron of listening. Good work by
the way!

At this point no bird parent or fledgling or imm. Wants to be found.

You can sit in those woods for years and not gather a body of evidence. Too
complex. Shifting dates (maybe the first clutch didn't hatch?) All the
while the woods and biota within change. Everything changes.

That leaves us with several options as to what birds are doing. BUT, until
we have data accumulated and statistically analyzed we must guess.

Or, I like the expression paint a picture starting from the frame.

I wish more people could listen like you
And not concentrate on who but changes.

I'd need 12' of solid wall around 10 acres with 1000 theft proof cameras
with audio.
And 30 yrs! it still wouldn't be but a pile of beans.

Hal Harrison's Wood Warbler's World is fabulous.

Subject: Re: no sighting - addendum to "number of birdsongs absent or greatly diminished now"
There is a very good reason there isn’t much information about this stage of the life cycle of songbirds. They are darned hard to study! Not only are they silent, but they mostly tend to move to denser cover to avoid predation. The studies that have provided the best information often use radiotelemetry or pit tags.

What little you can find for North American species would be in the species accounts of the Birds of North America series.

Hello, everyone!

I am honored and excited to be traveling again to Mexico in Audrain County
in central Missouri to present another FREE, public, all-ages owl talk at
the Mexico-Audrain County Library District on Thursday, July 21. In this
talk, "How To Find An Owl In Your Neighborhood", I will share what I have
learned in the past 16 years of studying owls. I am confident that this
talk will help you find, observe and document owls in an ethical and
effective manner. I will show which owls you are most likely to see or
hear, where to look for them, how to look for them, what to listen for, and
the importance of research and collaboration. I hope to see you
there-thank you! :)

Subject: no sighting - addendum to "number of birdsongs absent or greatly diminished now"
It was pointed out correctly that I short-thrifted the period that migrating woodland songbirds go through before fall migration (i.e. raising their young). Specifically, I was reminded that birds stop singing or greatly reduce their singing when raising their young.

I believe that. However, I've always read that young songbirds also need to learn their species-specific song by imitating that song provided by the male parent. Thus, I would think I would still hear the woodland songbirds singing through this period as they teach their young the proper species-specific song. Would that result in a lull followed by a return to singing?

I think part of my omission from my original post might be because there's so little information regarding the fledgling period.

I just checked my copy of Birds of Missouri - their Distribution and Abundance, and noticed the terms feeding, fledglings, are nesting, for example, are not indexed. Skimming through the texts of individual species in the book, I couldn't find anything related to that period of the lifecycle.

Similarly, taking a quick glimpse at Peterson Field Guides Warblers, there's a lot of detailed information about description, voice, behavior, habitat, distributions, etc. It also provides a description of the nest, and clutch size, but a quick glimpse doesn't seem to indicate when a species is in its fledgling stage and how long that lasts.

Skimming through allaboutbirds.org (Cornell) there is much detail about each species, but when it comes to details regarding the fledge stage, it boils down to this sort of description (Kentucky Warbler): "Males guard females throughout incubation. After the young fledge, the parents often go their separate ways and split up caring for fledglings."

Anybody have suggestions where to find detailed information regarding that time period referred to as "summer" that provides a typical time frame in which migrating songbirds incubate and then raise their young and associated behavior?

Subject: Re: No sightings, Perspective on Insect Declines and Their Impact
I would like to give the bumblebee atlas a shout out. My husband and I are
on our 3rd year and it is a great project.
Looking at the map of the state, more observations are really needed from
the northeast (north of Hannibal, anyone?) and from the southern part of
the state (Ava? Lesterville? etc.) Try it, you'll like it.

As for insect populations and all the rest of our problems that seem
insurmountable, eradicating invasive plants is one of the best things you
can do.
You all know the mantra... Native birds need native insects to eat, native
insects need native plants.
Removing invasives is important for maintaining our native plants and, for
me, while I know it's a battle I will never win completely, it makes me
feel I have actually accomplished something worthwhile.

Subject: River des Peres Greenway (south St Louis City)
Hello all,I've visited the River des Peres Greenway (now an eBird hotspot) the last two days and the "river" looks at good water levels for shorebirds.  Aside from the prevalent killdeer, I saw single semipalmated and spotted sandpipers (from the pedestrian bridge near Morganford).  There are never a lot of shorebirds, so you have to look carefully.  The egrets and herons have started congregating as well and I have had 50 -100 at a time as it gets later in the season.

Subject: Insect numbers DO affect birds
Daniel once again I commend you for making connections.

If you really want to know what's available for birds turn on your porch
light and take pictures. I have years of observational data. EO Wilson also
said each of us, has a bug phase. Mine came much too late. And I have
apologies to give!

But I'm now fascinated with caterpillars. Thank you, David Wagner, Eastern
Caterpillars and lepidopterist Lori Spencer. Arkansas's natural heritage
interpreter and author, Arkansas Butterflies and Moths (Its a small world
category, forward by Michael Pyle of Cape Cod ). For all birders you can't
imagine the CO evolution of caterpillars and birds. For millenia.

Caterpillars are very, very clever in the evolutionary scheme. Most changes
forced on them by birds. We know they hide but...

Where insect numbers have been monitored in mainland Europe for decades, as
of a several yrs ago, data analysis shows 60% drop in overall numbers.

Bee colonies as a super organism have been there and done that. Fabulous
ability to alter its environment.

BUT not when it has been altered rapidly. So, perhaps climate change is the
problem BECAUSE of the RATE of change. And, is of course, only another
factor in the demise of native colonies.

Checklist Comments

Text from my eBird checklist today (7-18-22) at Lost Valley and the same generally applies to Clark Trail from Wednesday (7-13-22):

General birdsongs from previous hikes were absent or greatly diminished on this hike, suggesting that vocalizations associated with breeding, nesting, and territory are transitioning to fall migration. For example: Instead of typical 5-8 American Restarts and N. Parulas here earlier in the season, I only heard one of each singing. I heard no Kentucky Warblers singing, but had four visual observations due to their chip calls. No Worm-eating Warblers, Cerulean Warblers, Ovenbirds, or Louisiana Waterthrushes were singing, which I consistently can count on hearing during breeding season. Birding by ear is on the run!

Note that spraying is presented as the last resort, and that the other steps are mostly free. Even Orkin admits that while spraying may repel mosquitoes for awhile, it doesn't actually kill many of them. Saving some otherwise-wasted money may get his attention.

Hi All,

It was a sobering news week (aren't they all lately ?) but after hearing
about measures to address climate change being gutted from proposed federal
legislation, Dan's email about the insect decline took me right over the
edge. As birders, naturalists, environmentalists, conservationists -- name
your label, I just want to climb up on my roof and scream,* "what is the
matter with you people?" *

And...this would be directed first and foremost to my next door neighbors.

*SO...question for the group: *my next door neighbor uses all manner of
chemicals on his lawn AND pesticides -- paying 2 different guys to come and
spray once a month. The last time the fella from Orkin was here with the
mosquito bog, I was in my yard and I did ask him to spray in the direction
AWAY from my perennial bed with all my recent native flowers -- which I've
been cultivating for the past 4 years -- for the birds and the bees & the
butterflies. These are good neighbors and I do see him throwing bread out

a soft spot for the bird because he asks me about my bird boxes and feeders
and comments on how the hummingbird love the Rose of Sharon. *I SO want to

What would you do? I literally get a knot in my stomach when I hear the
"merchant of death" perticide truck pull up and the guy rolls out the death
wand.

*Second question:* can municipalities enact ordinances prohibiting these
mosquito companies from spraying yards?

Thanks all, (sorry for the vent...)

Subject: Behave yourselves!
Hi gang,

Thought that subject line would catch your eye.

Just want to alert you that I'm signing off Mobirds while I go to Aussieland for three weeks, where wifi will be very limited, I and don't want to come back to 3,000 messages. I'll read your words of wisdom in the archives when I return.

With a lot of help, I've spent much of the last three weeks working on MBS business--good stuff to serve our members and contribute to the welfare of birds and birders. We now have full liability insurance; we've scheduled a zoom-based Shorebird Workshop Part 2 with Pete Monacell for July 28, Register in advance for this workshop:

; committed $5,000 to a partnership research project to monitor Cerulean Warblers; Ernesto Carman will be coming from Costa Rica to be the keynote speaker for the MoBCI conference in August; and, registration for the MBS Fall Meeting September 23-25 in Columbia, with Julie Zickefoose as the keynote speaker and an array of field trips and three catered meals , is ready to open on the MBS website on August 13, .

Oh, and the easiest way to behave yourselves, of course, is to go birding. See you in mid-August.

Bodacious birding,

Edge Wade
