Subject: Re: ILLINOIS: HSL duck impoundment drawn down
Hi all!

I was visiting Horseshoe Lake State Park (IL) today, actually and there
weren't many herons. While I had a good number of species (six) the
concentration that was present over the weekend seems to have dissipated.
There's still quite a few hanging around, but they were fairly well-spread
out along the lake. I did have 40+ American Robins in a couple of flocks,
as well as the continuing pair of Ruddy Ducks. I didn't find the Neotropic
Cormorant.

Speaking of heron concentrations, I had 106 Great Egrets fly over/ land at
Riverlands this evening, but other than one Least Sandpiper and one Least
Tern there wasn't much of interest.

Subject: Duck Creek WHIB info
Here's a link to the eBird checklist with photos of the five White Ibises.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S47253995

The last I saw them was about 11:20 am. The GPS coordinates for the last
sighting of the birds is 37.0515, -90.1197 (location of the tree line where
I photographed two of the birds). I was last by the area at 12 pm and did
not see them. But, there is a lot of habitat out there!

Take the road on the south side of Unit A. After you emerge from the wooded
area past the first low water bridge, the area on the left (south) has a
large pool of water against the far tree line. The pool is where I saw a
concentration of Great Egrets. After that pool, you will reach a tree line
(still left side of road) just before the second low water bridge. That is
the tree line where I photographed the two individuals perched in a tree. I
first saw the birds in flight at the west end of this road, near the blind.

Good luck!

There were also a few Bobolinks, plus Grasshopper, Field, Song, and Henslow's Sparrows, as well as other expected species of birds. The Praire plants were interesting and rich in variety, as were the insects, as usual! Such a cool place even on a HOT day!

Subject: Re: KMOS showing of Eagle Bluffs: An Environmental Success Story

Carl's documentary is a MUST SEE for several reasons.  The cinematography is professional grade.  The wildlife (especially birds) shots are spectacular.  And even non-Columbians or those who have swelled our numbers since the mid-nineties will learn a lot about how Eagle Bluffs came to be--not a slam dunk, by any means.

This is a story about a near-magical place and the grass roots led movement that intruded into "politics as usual" and the proponents of "state of the art" technology to bring Eagle Bluffs into being.

I was privileged to view and critique the video several times in its development. 

JULY 16, 8 p.m.

From the KMOS program guide, CONTACT:
Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area, on the eastern bank of the Missouri River, is comprised of 17 shallow pools with 30 miles of levees and 61 water control structures that effectively create and maintain important wildlife habitat, mitigating losses of some of Missouri’s historical wetlands.
With ‘recycled’ wastewater from nearby Columbia as its primary source of water, the area provides excellent wildlife viewing
and hunting opportunities. The rich soil marshes and crop fields attract local wildlife as well as migrating and wintering birds as it further cleans the water on its way through the watershed down the Missouri River.
That this partnership between Columbia and MDC has yielded such an environmental gem is no surprise, but its origins were not so obvious. In this documentary produced by Columbia biologist Carl Gerhardt, the story of how Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area became so important began in the late 1980s when the city proposed to pipe its treated wastewater directly to the Missouri River. This prompted citizens in the area to push back and force the city council to consider alternatives beyond those recommended by consultants.
Thus began a robust civic discussion that engaged much of the community in an effort to find the best solution to a problem. Although the process took years to work through, the plan was supported by a large majority of voters who passed the bond issue meant to pay for the project.
KMOS invites you to tune in to learn the story, told through interviews with people
who started out on opposite sides of the issue. This film was screened in February at the Missouri River Relief ’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and tells the story through narration and interviews with:
Ray Beck, Former City Manager, Columbia Doug Elley, Former Mayor, Lupus
Brad Jacobs, Former Ornithologist, MDC Tim James, Area Manager, MDC
Clayton Light, Manager, Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area
Mary Anne McCollum, Former Mayor, Columbia
Hank Ottinger, Osage Group Sierra Club Lowell Patterson, Former Director of Public Works, Columbia
H. Carl Gerhardt, producer of Eagle
Bluffs: An Environmental Success Story, is
a professor in the Division of Biological
Sciences at the University of Missouri as well as an accomplished wildlife videographer. Throughout the program you will see 40+ species of resident and migratory wildlife found at Eagle Bluffs CA and elsewhere in Missouri.

Subject: Sandhill Cranes at Swan Lake NWR, Chariton Co.
I observed three SHCR today at Swan Lake. With high temps and no rain, water levels are very low now, and it will probably be all dried up soon. Still a large number of Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons there, but won't be for long. Only about 50 Pelicans left today. Saw the drake Northern Pintail again. At one place there was a large number of dead Carp, and I counted 36 Turkey Vultures around the shoreline. Two adult Bald Eagles were perched nearby also. Had a flyover Upland Sandpiper, and some Purple Martins overhead too. Saw couple small flocks of Least Sandpipers. The Water Snakes still taking advantage of the conditions as I witnessed four different ones that had caught a frog.
There was close to 200 Shorebirds today at Bittern Marsh pool east side of Fountain Grove CA. Several each Stilt and Pectoral Sandpipers along with the many Killdeer, Yellowlegs, and Peeps.

Follow South Kingshighway about 2 miles; between Little Woods Lane and La Grand Rue there is a pond along the left (east) side of the road. The ibis is feeding in this pond and seems pretty unconcerned about people on the road.

This morning while watching the ibis I also observed a Black Tern foraging in flight over the pond.

I saw Charlie's 10 am announcement about the Cave Swallow around noon and
left for Bates County about 1:30 pm. It was not the best of weather, there
was intermittent rain, lots of thunder and very black clouds rolling across
the sky from SW to NE, just to the north of where I was. I have included
the URL of my eBird checklist with some photos of the Cave Swallow on the
right end of the line of swallows. Is believe they stage each night
somewhere in the area, possibly in the same locations. Ricky Hostetler
reported this bird among 1,000 swallow. There were about 200 swallows while
I was there.

Good luck in your search. Makes we want to check all the swallow I see on
the power line where ever I go.

Subject: Cave Swallow (probable/possible)
One of the SW Mo Mennonite birders has reported what he believes is a Cave
Swallow among a large group of staging swallows near the Four Rivers CA.
He has discussed his sighting with a very experienced high level birder
(not one of our SW GOAS group). The Mennonite birder's discussion of the
bird sounds pretty good. The birder does not use a camera.

If anyone is interested in going on an adventurous trip to chase a tough
re-location here are the directions given to me. The directions look good
in comparison to a google map view.

Leave I49 going east on TT for a mile, turn N on SE1005 and go 2 mi to
NW1006. Turn east on NW1006 and go about 1/3 mile and there will be a farm
with large barn buildings on the north side of the road. The swallows are
staging on the phone wires on the south side of the road. The birder said
hundreds upon hundreds of birds were staging if they are still there.

Enjoy your Easter egg hunt experience, and take your CAMERA.

This is a test of your tenacity.

Northern Pintail - one male
Least Sandpiper - 1Solitary Sandpiper - 1Greater Yellowlegs - 1
Otter - 3
Water Snakes eating frogs - 3
Heard what sounded like a Fish Crow, guess it could have been a young American Crow at this time, but don't think so. 
Dirt work continuing on the conversion of part of the crop fields in the middle of the refuge to a new wetland/grassland complex. There will be some road closures as work progresses. Right now the north entrance is closed, but you can still drive through from the main entrance to the east entrance. Should be interesting to see how this develops.
Saw two Forester's Terns and one Ring-billed Gull at Che-Ru lake as I went back by Fountain Grove CA.

Subject: Administrative Message - Please Read
Dear MOBirds-L Subscribers,

The list has been hit with a virus. Please do NOT open messages from the MOBirds listserve computer which contain a only URL and do not have a subject line. Do NOT click on that URL! Several responsible subscribers have done that and ended up with infected computers. As soon as I see a post like this I've set the owner's computer so it cannot send more messages to the list. (These people will have full posting privileges re-instated once their computer is virus free.) However, this is a reactive, rather than proactive, action on my part. Again the classic and continuous warning: Do not click on URLs from people you don't know or if they don't have anything to do with the subject matter you would be expecting from that person. Just delete them.

Thanks, Susan

Subject: Caution posts - administrator help
I hope this doesn't double post - somehow first one didn't post.
Noticed 3 of these <no subject> posts recents - believe them to be problematic - possible trolling, spam, hijacking user emails, not sure proper terms. I know one of the persons who supposedly wrote one of these posts, and can guarantee that person would not have written anything like the post.

I would caution, not to click on the links in these posts.

Might be useful if an administrator looked into this, to prevent these posts going forward - for all I know perhaps its already being attended to.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: Upcoming "Introduction to Bird Song" program in Columbia
We'll be presenting an hour-long "Introduction to Bird Song" program at
the Daniel Boone Regional Library in Columbia on Thursday, July 12th from
7-8 p.m., on behalf of the Columbia Audubon Society. Below is the official
program notice, which can also be found online at
http://www.columbia-audubon.org/introduction-to-bird-song/

Why and how do birds sing? How can sound help you identify them? We’ll
touch on these questions and more as we explore the fascinating language
of birds, with an emphasis on local species. This hour-long program will
include an introduction to sonagrams (visual representations of bird
vocalizations) and examples of how to listen to, describe, and learn bird
vocalizations. Aimed at a general audience; all skill levels welcome.
Adults & teens.

Saturday, July 7, my wife Patricia and I spied 9 Black-bellied whistling ducks at the same Nash Pond where Mark saw his and others (including me) have reported on for several weeks now.

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were observed, Sun. 7/1 at Nash Rd. Pond, Scott City as of 10:30 a.m.
There were only two seen. We checked the grain pile across the road - possibly others feeding there, none were found.
They were perched on a large stump-like tree in the water at the far end of the pond - bit difficult to see with naked eye.
Close views if you walk down the right side road, but be careful - there is a shoulder, but large trucks frequent.

Subject: Out of State Post: Audubon Center MS, plus WY birds

A month ago I had a brief stop at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center, a place I have birded before. It is located in Holly Springs, Mississippi and may be of particular interest to those in the southeast part of the state, since it is only about an hour from Memphis. The center features over 3000 acres of wetlands, native grasslands, and forest, with 15 miles of hiking trails. An 1851 home which we toured is on the property, but you need to make an appointment. They have a website. One feature of the center is several chimney swift towers. In April, I would expect the wetlands to have ample prothonotary warblers. Winter birding would not likely to be too cold. And on another note, on my recent trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Tetons, and Yellowstone I managed to get a few notable birds: Ravens, Magpies. Violet Green Swallows, Osprey, Common Merganser, Wilson's Warbler, Audubon's Yellow Rumped Warbler, White Pelicans, Swainson's Hawk. Mountain Bluebirds. If you go and want to see Mountain Bluebirds, just walk the fence bordering the Elk Refuge (they have a visitor's center) where, for miles, bluebird boxes are on many of the fenceposts, which follow Hwy. 89. And, as I said last year, a great stop is the National Museum of Wildlife Art, also on Hwy 89 in Jackson Hole. River Bluffs Audubon in Jefferson City will resume its meetings on September 13 at 6:00 at Runge Nature Center with a presentation by the wonderful Missouri River Bird Observatory. Happy summer birding!

We checked on shorebirds at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary in
West Alton, MO today, 6/30/18. Although mudflats abounded, we only
found 2 Willets, a Spotted Sandpiper and a Least Sandpiper - all out
in Ellis Bay.
Least Terns were all over the place. One young had fallen off the
barge and was swimming around in the water. Not sure if rescue was
needed, we asked at the Audubon Center. The little one continuously
swam around the barge instead of swimming shore. We figured he might
get weary and drown, but we don't know much about what Least Tern
young are capable of.

barge and was swimming around in the water. Not sure if rescue was
needed, we asked at the Audubon Center. The little one continuously
swam around the barge instead of swimming shore. We figured he might
get weary and drown, but we don't know much about what Least Tern
young are capable of.

I counted 11 BBWD at Nash pond this afternoon. Including what looked like a pair in the center of a hollowed at snag. I couldn't capture the birds in the log in time but I'm pretty certain one stayed inside the cavity as the other flew off. Hope to be having little ones there soon.

Subject: Western Kingbirds in St. Louis City 6/24/18 - 12 nests - video
Almost one month since our last visit to what we refer to as Kingbird
Alley (a 4.8 mile strip along Hall St. in St. Louis City that starts
at Grand & Hall and ends at Riverview & Hall), we went back to see how
the Western Kingbirds were doing with their nesting. We found 12
active nests with young, the most we've ever found. Since we saw other
Western Kingbirds on electrical towers and phone polls not associated
with any nest we were able to find (too far away), we are sure there
were more. Each nest had 3 (sometimes 2) young in it - making for a
total of 56 Western Kingbirds that we observed. Here's a video of
three of the nests:

Subject: Call for volunteers for Ha Ha Tonka State Park Spencer Creek Glade Bird Monitoring
ASM is a partner in a MoBCI grant awarded to MoDNR for Ha Ha Tonka State Park Spencer Creek Glade Restoration (removal of cedars). ASM's contribution is bird monitoring of two glades being restored. We're not cutting the cedars; we are to provide before/after bird data.

These surveys are to be be conducted in July, August 2018 and June 2019.
ASM is to provide 4 volunteers for each of these survey times for 10 hours per survey. But we are able to be very flexible in how we achieve the total time.

These hours do not have to be consecutive--that is, a volunteer could spend a few hours on one day and more on the next one or two days. OR

If you can only do one time for 4 hours at one of the two glade sites, we'll be glad to have you!

The July and August surveys will not be coordinated group events as we've done before (at Current River SP, for example). We may be able to have a group survey in June of 2019. For these first two survey periods, we're looking for volunteers who can come on any day that is convenient.

We'll gladly accept volunteers as individuals, 2-person teams, or groups.

If you are available to do bird survey work at Ha Ha Tonka State Park any day(s) in July or August, please respond.

I'll have more detailed information later to send to those who indicate an interest.

One possible perk: Use of one of the group camps at Lake of the Ozarks SP (probably Red Bud) may be available for those who want to stay overnight.

Hoping to hear from you,

Although I came upon these birds incidentally this summer—on two different evenings—, a distinguished Missouri birder later told me that the area borders an established nesting site. Maybe I will go search for the nest, buy some shampoo, and come home with dinner.

Both of these events were occurring with the flycatchers chasing the larger birds out of Cottonwoods in 2 different locations so assumed there is some nesting going on there.

The show didn't last long as the Kites began to gain altitude and drift off to the southwest.  Five minutes after I got there, they were all out of sight.

Carl's documentary is a MUST SEE for several reasons.  The cinematography is professional grade.  The wildlife (especially birds) shots are spectacular.  And even non-Columbians or those who have swelled our numbers since the mid-nineties will learn a lot about how Eagle Bluffs came to be--not a slam dunk, by any means.

This is a story about a near-magical place and the grass roots led movement that intruded into "politics as usual" and the proponents of "state of the art" technology to bring Eagle Bluffs into being.

I was privileged to view and critique the video several times in its development. 

JULY 16, 8 p.m.

From the KMOS program guide, CONTACT:
Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area, on the eastern bank of the Missouri River, is comprised of 17 shallow pools with 30 miles of levees and 61 water control structures that effectively create and maintain important wildlife habitat, mitigating losses of some of Missouri’s historical wetlands.
With ‘recycled’ wastewater from nearby Columbia as its primary source of water, the area provides excellent wildlife viewing
and hunting opportunities. The rich soil marshes and crop fields attract local wildlife as well as migrating and wintering birds as it further cleans the water on its way through the watershed down the Missouri River.
That this partnership between Columbia and MDC has yielded such an environmental gem is no surprise, but its origins were not so obvious. In this documentary produced by Columbia biologist Carl Gerhardt, the story of how Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area became so important began in the late 1980s when the city proposed to pipe its treated wastewater directly to the Missouri River. This prompted citizens in the area to push back and force the city council to consider alternatives beyond those recommended by consultants.
Thus began a robust civic discussion that engaged much of the community in an effort to find the best solution to a problem. Although the process took years to work through, the plan was supported by a large majority of voters who passed the bond issue meant to pay for the project.

I was excited to learn that Carl Gerhardt's film: Eagle Bluffs: An Envirnomental Success Story will be shown on July 16 at 8PM by KMOS-TV.
I am really looking forward to viewing this documentary on the origins of my favorite birding location.

Is there any way to watch the Eagle Bluffs documentary other than on KMOS? I live in the Kansas City area and can't view KMOS from here.

This is a story about a near-magical place and the grass roots led movement that intruded into "politics as usual" and the proponents of "state of the art" technology to bring Eagle Bluffs into being.

I was privileged to view and critique the video several times in its development. 

JULY 16, 8 p.m.

From the KMOS program guide, CONTACT:
Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area, on the eastern bank of the Missouri River, is comprised of 17 shallow pools with 30 miles of levees and 61 water control structures that effectively create and maintain important wildlife habitat, mitigating losses of some of Missouri’s historical wetlands.
With ‘recycled’ wastewater from nearby Columbia as its primary source of water, the area provides excellent wildlife viewing
and hunting opportunities. The rich soil marshes and crop fields attract local wildlife as well as migrating and wintering birds as it further cleans the water on its way through the watershed down the Missouri River.
That this partnership between Columbia and MDC has yielded such an environmental gem is no surprise, but its origins were not so obvious. In this documentary produced by Columbia biologist Carl Gerhardt, the story of how Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area became so important began in the late 1980s when the city proposed to pipe its treated wastewater directly to the Missouri River. This prompted citizens in the area to push back and force the city council to consider alternatives beyond those recommended by consultants.
Thus began a robust civic discussion that engaged much of the community in an effort to find the best solution to a problem. Although the process took years to work through, the plan was supported by a large majority of voters who passed the bond issue meant to pay for the project.

I observed eight MIKI over the north end of Swan Lake today. They were mostly up high, so probably would not have found them if I had not been scanning the Sky with my Binos, looking for them. Did not see any over the private area west of there this time. Had a single one from the bottom road to Fountain Grove, so only nine total,half as many again as a few days ago. Still that is more than I usually see around here. On the other hand the number of White-rumped Sandpipers at Fountain Grove had increased again, as I counted 23 today. Wonder which way they will go from here?
