Had a singing White-eyed Vireo along the service road near the east end of Meadowmere Park this morning. Two to three pairs of the vireo have nested in this area the last few years.On a different note, had my first Carolina Wren in 6 trips to the park since the bitter cold episode. Prior to that, I would’ve had the wrens throughout the 3-mile loop through the park.

Michelle,
I, too, wish you welcome!

You'll find Missouri birders to be a congenial, helpful community.

And, you have some great opportunities to get to know other birders and learn about birds coming up in the near future. The Spring Meeting of the Missouri Birding Society (MBS) will be run on a COVID-19 conscious manner over the course of 2 weeks. We have 3 Zoom presentations and a good variety of field trips scheduled.

You do not have to be a member of MBS to attend the zoom sessions or go on field trips--all of which are free, but you must register for the meeting.

There are 4 field trips scheduled in the Columbia area, the closest to you in the Blackwater area, and I urge you to consider participating in at least one. For me, there is no better way to learn about birds and how to find them than learning first-hand on field trips with experienced birders.

To see the meeting information (zoom sessions and field trips) and register, go to [ https://mobirds.org/ASM/NextMeeting.aspx | https://mobirds.org/ASM/NextMeeting.aspx ]
Scroll down to the bottom and click on "Show Field Trips" to get the detailed information about each of them, then complete your meeting registration by clicking on one or more field trips you want to join.

The Columbia trips are:

Saturday, May 1: Rock Bridge Mem. State Park
Tuesday, May 4, Columbia Audubon Nature Sanctuary
Tuesday, May 11, 3-M Wetlands
Saturday, May 15, 3-M Wetlands (especially for beginners)

Another that might be of interest to you and not too long a drive is:
Wednesday, May 12, Van Meter SP and Grand Pass CA.

If you haven't already discovered the home page of the Missouri Birding Society, it is: [ https://mobirds.org/ | https://mobirds.org/ ]

Take a look at the many kinds of information on the website, including the site guides listed in the drop down menu under "Birding Locations." There you'll find information, including directions, what to expect, and much more, about birding sites near you in Cooper and nearby counties. You can search by county or by site name, or bring up a map to see what places near you have site guides, then see the site guide by inputting the name in
"Birding Site Guides--List" in the drop down menu.

Again, welcome aboard, and bodacious birding!

I am a VERY amateur birder and have very much enjoyed all of the bird sightings that you guys post! I live on a small farm about 5 miles northeast of Blackwater in Cooper county. I currently have 12 purple martins in houses on my property and several barn swallows. I saw my FOY scissor tailed flycatcher last Wednesday at the intersection of K and 41. I love watching birds and hope to learn more and get better at this! Thank you!

Well, apparently birds aren't fond of overcast, 49 degree weather either. The woods were very quiet. Very little sound or movement. Nothing new from last week, except the Loggerhead Shrike just north of Washburn wetland. And a few Brown Thrashers.

Becky Wyle was right when she corrected me last week. There are three, not two Eaglets in the nest. The youngest is much smaller than it's two older siblings. Hope it makes it.

At least the wildflowers are beautiful. New this week was shooting stars, which are on chute ridge glade. The glade was burned during the winter. We also saw delphiniums.

Gentle, kind, understanding folk (aren't all birders?),

We have had a major glitch in our MBS 2021 Spring Meeting Registration and Field Trip Sign-ups on the website. It has now been corrected BUT..

1. If you have registered for the Spring Meeting, please do it again. Your registration has been zapped. Remember to indicate you are paying by check, but DO NOT send check. The cost is $0.

2. If you have registered/signed up for one or more field trips, please do it again--AND THIS TIME you DO NOT NEED TO NOTIFY THE TRIP LEADER. The trip registration will be recorded automatically.

Trip leaders--NO NEED TO RESPOND WITH A CONFIRMATION EMAIL!!! The record of registrations for limited trips will be automatic.

Thank you for your patience, and I hope, for understanding and a wee bit of compassion for a semi-literate vice president with meeting responsibilities. We'll get there...and maybe in one good-humored piece.

See you in the field for some bodacious spring birding,

Edge Wade
MBS vice president

Very birdy st 3M wetlands this morning. I’ve got an American Bittern in the
lower big pond near the pavilion walking along the shore. Wear waterproof
boots and walk the trail between the MKT and the pond.

Great day to practice Yellow-rumped warbler and Ruby crowned kinglet song.
They are quite thick.

Swamp sparrows are trilling.

The Long-tailed Duck was present this evening - with the group of Lesser
Scaup - in the distribution channel at the final bend in the road. Not
sure where this Houdini disappears to when she is not swimming with the
scaup.

A Peregrine Falcon did a very quick (and successful) pass on the ducks in
pool 5. We did not re-locate the ibis, stilt, bittern or yellow-headed
blackbird. There were a large number (200+) shorebirds in the back part of
Pool 14 (walked out from the end of the second loop) - all that we could
see were yellowlegs and pectorals. Still pretty distant.

I enjoyed some good birds at Eagle Bluffs today. Highlights were 2 Snowy
Egrets in the distribution channel south of the pumphouse, a continuing
Spotted Towhee at Pool 8 parking lot that came into view after about 20
minutes of patient waiting, a Clay-colored sparrow at the same brush pile,
and 25 American Golden Plovers in Pool 5.
No Long-tailed Duck for me.
Not many shorebirds, with some Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, and Pectoral
Sandpipers.
Drove to Grand Pass CA afterwards, which had a nice diversity of ducks and
few shorebirds.
Later,
Peter

The wife and I birded Loess Bluffs today. Got a late start after an appointment and a side trip to Lewis and Clark SP to find the Long-tailed Duck.

We spent 5 hours and tallied 62 species. There is an uncountable number of American Coost and Blue-winged Teal along with hundreds of other ducks and geese
Had several notable species. Snowy Egrets, Glossy Ibis, Semi-palmated plover, Hudsonian Godwit and while we were looking at the Hudsonian Godwits we observed 22 Marbled Godwits come in near the other godwits, then 6 more landed in the general area.

The complete list is at https://ebird.org/checklist/S85618660.

I will upload photos later this week.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

My wife, daughter, and I made a *quick* stop by McGee CA this morning after
morning Mass as my wife had to leave soon for St. Joseph. In about 10-15
minutes, we saw at least 5 Swainson's hawks and some Red-tailed Hawks.
Several more hawks were on very distant, surrounding trees and positive
identification was difficult. If we would have had more time, a more
accurate count could have occurred.

Also, as I scanned the distant, surrounding treelines I saw Great Blue
Herons nesting in the tops of sycamore trees to the far northeast side of
the area. Maybe they were there in the past but this is the first time I
noticed them. I will hike down there in the next week or so and try to get
a better handle on the number of nests, birds.....

Thanks Sherry for the heads up on the Swainson's!! I was unaware that more
of the area had been burned since the other prescribed burn a few weeks
back.... . Neat diversity of habitat present now...the burnt pasture, the
greening up pastures, and the ones with old growth still present...along
with the stream, ponds, and surrounding trees and ditches.

Spring is awesome!

Subject: Peregrine Falcon_Alton, IL (sighting)
I was privileged to observe and photograph a Peregrine today. It was perched high on the river bluffs right outside Alton, Il. I observed on 3/22/2018 near the same location - thinking perhaps the same bird. This bird is banded.

Its a good photo opportunity if interested.

Few photos: https://evsphotos.smugmug.com/04142021Peregrine-FalconAlton-Ill/

This is the directions an acquaintance sent me which were spot on. It is quite a busy highway - be careful.

It is pretty easy to find. From Alton, go North on IL 100. Look on the right for an old abandoned rock quarry with a fence around it and No Trespassing signs. This is only a couple miles north of Alton.

Now the tricky part: you can't park anywhere along the highway. Many photographers have parked across the road on a wide area with a memorial to McAdams. However, I was parked there Sunday and a Deputy Sherriff asked me to move. He was very polite. We moved on.

Now the good part: About 1/2 mile north of the bluff there is a memorial to American Indians. You can pull into the area and walk back to the Peregrine Bluff on a bicycle trail. It is an easy walk.

I have seen the PEFA in several places. The most consistent is a notch in what appears to be a "corner" of the bluff about 2/3 of the way up. Look for whitewash as a clue to his favorite roost. There is a Cedar snag I have seen him on a couple of time. Other times he was on various ledges.

He can blend in with the ledges very well so look carefully. If he isn't around, wait and watch for him to fly in.

Word from EBCA is that the long-tailed duck has been re-located - in
distribution channel near where 2nd loop starts. This morning there was
also American Bittern and WF Ibis (found by Grant); baird's, semi-palmated,
least and pectoral sandpipers, dunlin, both yellowlegs (found by Paul -
100s in far side of pool 14). Last evening there were also Cattle Egret
(Greg), yellow-headed blackbird (Jean) and Black-necked Stilt (John). It

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

May 1 is the deadline for submission of materials to be considered for the
June 2021 issue of The Bluebird, the journal of the Missouri Birding
Society.

We solicit submissions of anything related to birding in Missouri --
articles about birding trips, unusual sightings or experiences while
birding, ideas for birding techniques, identification tips, memoirs,
fiction or poetry about birds or birding, photos of Missouri birds,
original artwork, book reviews, you name it.

We also publish peer-reviewed scientific articles reporting original
research on birds; please note that the review process takes time, so such
material is often published in a subsequent issue. If you want a paper to
be peer reviewed, please make that clear when submitting it.

Please email all submissions to me, Allen Gathman, <agathman...>
Microsoft Word format is preferred for text. If you have images to include
with text, please send them separately, preferably as .jpg files. For all
photos of birds, do include the identification of the bird species, the
location where the photo was taken including Missouri county, date taken,
and photographer's name.

Your submissions make the Bluebird possible; I encourage everyone to send
something. While it may not be possible to include all submitted material
in the current issue, some items can be used later -- especially photos,
for which I have a continual need.

-Thanks,

If you are coming into Jefferson City to try the birding across the river on Mokane Road, you may want to stop at one of at least four busy martin houses we have here now, The rooms were filling up at the house at Noren Access today and I am also informed of the many martins now at McKay Lake, the Stadium Road Wal Mart (the Wal-Martins), and at Birds-I-View. And swallows are beginning to fill the air at the shorebird area at Binder Lake.  There's also a regular Osprey there, which I saw catch a fish the other day. Happy Spring!

Among the birds I saw at the Cape Rock Park access point on the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau this morning were four Bonaparte’s Gulls. The unusual thing was that they were perched on a floating log and never moved as they drifted downstream and then disappeared around the bluff face. Chilling out, I guess!

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

After Joseph Bieksza's sighting of a Smith's Longspur off Mokane Rd (CR 4033), I decided to try Mokane Rd. (CR 4038) this evening after work.

Starting at Hibernia Rd. headed east, there were a pair (male & female) of Scissor-tailed Flycatchers between the two bridges beyond Fischer Farms.

Further down Mokane Rd. (CR 4038) in the field just west of the lone trailer were about 40+ American Golden Plovers and a lone Brewer's Blackbird.

Then further yet east on Mokane Rd. at the CR 4033 intersection where the three huge trees are alongside the road, a lone male, Yellow-headed Blackbird was within a small blackbird flock.

Along CR 4033 about halfway between Mokane Rd. and 94 where Joseph located the Smith's Longspur, the bird was observed giving its "rattle" call. No visual was made. Will try again sometime this week or head up to Bradford Farm this weekend to try for a visual.

Interesting things are turning up!!!

Bodacious Birding!!!

I birded my favorite spots in NW MO today.
On the way down I stopped in Linn Co. to listen for Henslow's sparrow and
heard at least 3 singing nonstop at the intersection of Hwy 11 and 129.
At Loess Bluffs NWR (Holt Co.) there were thousands of ducks, all geese
except Cackling, but relatively few shorebirds (Dunlin and all common peeps
though, but no godwits). Highlights were 25 White-faced and with them a
single Glossy Ibis (found by Doug Willis a couple of days ago) and a
Cinnamon Teal.
At Lewis and Clark SP (Buchanan Co.) a Long-tailed duck continues at the
shelter.
At Muskrat Lake I had a Swainson's Hawk and a few shorebirds.
A very enjoyable day!

Another day in Barry County today. Not a big difference from last week, but some interesting highlights. Saw a Great Egret on a small pond a mile east of Monett. Saw seven Scissor-tailed Flycatchers between Monett and Cassville.

Yellow-throated and White-eyed Vireos arrived in numbers.

Identified nine warbler species. Yellow-throated, Yellow-rumped, Pine, Northern Parula, Louisiana Waterthrush, Black & White. Heard, but did not see, Common Yellowthroat and Ovenbird. Margie heard a strange, three note song. Sure enough, Hooded Warbler. Singing only the last three notes of it's seven note song. Instead of singing 'can-you-see-my-pree-ty-hood", it was just "pre-ty-hood." Not uncommon for us to hear this, especially early in the migration. We heard three or four, but got a visual on one. The highlight of the day.

Wildflowers are coming on strong. Saw Spiderwort, Wild Hyacinth, Blue-eyed Mary, Blue Star, and what we thought was Hoary or Orange Puccoon.

We spotted two Swainson's Hawks on the way home just south of Purdy.

Looked for Jeff Cantrell's Scarlet Tanager on Piebern Trail, but did not find it.

Margie & I spent a day in southern Barry County each of the last two weekends.  On Saturday, March 27th, the highlights were the nesting Bald Eagles with two kids, (4th or 5th year now?) Osprey flyover, Eastern Phoebe, Tree Swallow, Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow-throated Warbler, Black & White Warbler, and great views of the Pine Warbler, which was in the pines next to camp smokey in Roaring River State Park.  We normally don’t see them in the park, usually in the adjoining Mark Twain National Forest.

Today, April 4, we noticed increased numbers of the four warbler species from last weekend, especially the Black & White.  We added Northern Parula to the warbler list and saw first of year birds in Barn Swallow, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Purple Martin, Scissor-tail Flycatcher, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher,  Eastern Towhee, Wood Duck, and Great Blue Heron.  Margie also heard a distant Red-eyed Vireo.
Wild flowers so far include Rue Anemone and False Rue Anemone, Buttercups, Bellwort, Birds foot Violets, Wild Phlox, Trillium, Trout Lily, Wild Ginger.  May Apples are up.  Our Virginia Bluebells and Celandine Poppies are starting to bloom here at home.

The Munsey Cemetery road (FR1162), east and downstream of the park, goes downhill to Roaring River.  Apparently, the landowner has had his gut full of trespassing fisherman, floaters, campers, and partiers.  Maybe Covid had something to do with it.  There is now a cabled fence all along the river.  Stopping to see birds will become more of a challenge since there is not much of a pull off any longer.  Birders beware.

Not to one-up Kelly, but my wife saw our first bat here in Fenton 2 days ago. We're always happy to see them.

If you visit southeastern Arizona or other border areas and stay in lodging with hummingbird feeders, not in a city, watch for nectivorous bats after dark. I've stood a foot from a feeder with a flashlight, and watched processions of bats hover 2-3 wingbeats for a sip, move on, and be replaced immediately by the next bat in line. If you like bats, it's a thrill to feel the downwash from their wings as they fly around your head. In my experience, they ignore my presence (and my light), and focus completely on feeding. These bats are considerably larger than our Missouri species, and vital pollinators of century plants and other agaves.

If you are impressed by a Hummingbird flying, you should watch these bats maneuver through the air, stopping dead in its tracks and doing an impossibly quick turn. They entertained my daughter and myself until we lost the light. First time we have seen them this spring.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Despite not seeing starlings around the flicker nestbox so far this spring, today I did see one sticking out of the hole and when opened, found a starling nest 8 inches deep - so they’ve had the box for at least a couple days. Using a van ert trap, I was able to trap the starling and clean out the box. Hopefully, the flicker will return.

I’ve also been battling the house sparrows competing with tree swallows for nestboxes. Over the last 8 years, twice I’ve found tree swallows pecked to death by house sparrows that must have come in the box on top of the nesting swallow.

It really demonstrates just how destructive these two non-natives (starlings and house sparrows) are to native cavity nesters.

Still have not had any bluebirds in the yard.

Today I put out 15 bird house gourds amongst the trees and cedars (with 1 1/8 inch holes) for house wrens, which should be arriving in another week or so. In addition to providing nesting sites for the wrens, it seems to keep them away from the bluebird/tree swallow boxes, which tend to be out in the open areas.

The serviceberry and redbuds are now in bloom. The crabapples and red buckeye are beginning to bud, so they should be blooming shortly.

Picked a rainy day to bird Dunn Ranch.
The rain was intermittent and allowed us to scope and walk -about for a few minutes at a time. We were able to find 9 Greater Prairie Chickens on the lek. While we were sitting in our vehicle, a single Upland Sandpiper flew up. We were able to find 4 more.

On the way home, I was about 2 1/2 miles from my house when I noticed an odd looking hawk in a small bush. I made a u-turn. When I pulled up my binoculars I noticed another hawk fly from a tree across the road. Then another flew from the ground. I started studying all the hawks and soon realized they were all Swainson's Hawks. In total, I counted 36 Hawks in the trees, bushes and on the ground in soybean stubble.. They were all of different color morphs, light,dark and intermediates.

Subject: Aging a Bald Eagle_Question
I was privileged to photograph a bald eagle Thurs. @ Clarence Cannon Refuge.
I'm curious if someone could look at my photo - this eagle looks to be an adult, however looking closely it has a partial gray shadow on its face. I've seen photos of 4 year old birds with a few black feathers on the face - but haven't seen this gray shadow. I am confident its not the photo - because I could also see the shadowing thru my bins.

Is this a 4 year old bird, or possibly a 4.5 year old bird? Thanks in advance. You can double-click the image for a closer view.

Aside, I was also pleased to view an immature bald eagle perched with his wings spread - I've seen other birds spreading/drying their wings, but not an eagle so was nice experience.

Thanks again.

We had a Marbled Godwit in pool 10, Eagle Bluffs CA. It was seen from about
halfway down the loop road. I was fortunate to be looking at a line of
yellowlegs through my binoculars when the godwit landed in the middle of my
view. Could clearly see the cinnamon wing linings as he was putting on the
brakes for landing. Was able to get a scope view as was my companion - but
when I turned to get phone for photo, the godwit disappeared. Don't know if
it flew or just walked behind the corn stubble out of view.

There were few other shorebirds around this evening but did have 2 snowy
egrets among the great egerts.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Everyone:

This post announces the fourth annual St. Louis Birdathon, organized by St.
Louis Audubon Society. As before, it covers one whole month, May 1-31
(April 30 included if you are going on one of the Missouri Birding Society
field trips).

The pandemic may or may not affect how you participate in the Birdathon,
depending on several factors. The home page is

https://stlouisaudubon.org/stlbirdathon

and you should first read the initial message and follow the link to the
safety guidelines. Then check out all the possible ways you can go out and
record birds for as much of May as you wish! As outlined there on several
pages, you can

-- go birding on a one-day basis, doing a regular Big Day (possibly with
limitations), a new type called a "distributed" Big Day, or various shorter
versions including SLAS beginner walks and MBS field trips

-- record birds for the entire month in a defined area

-- contribute your photos, art, or writings based on your May birding
experiences

You'll also see how to pledge your support for the people and teams who
will be out there birding, even if you are not participating yourself.

So please go to the Birdathon pages, think about what you would be most
comfortable doing, and sign yourself up individually, or organize a team of
one kind or another. Again, to be clear, please REGISTER AS YOUR FIRST
STEP. This time you can even order a shirt and a coffee mug, via the link!

Then please ask friends, family, and colleagues to support your efforts.
Give them the home page address (above) and your team name, or team
leader's name. They can make a flat donation or a per-species pledge.

Everyone involved should know that any form of participation, and any
amount of pledge, will help support conservation, nature study, and nature
education across the St. Louis area. So please register and go birding for
a good cause!

See you out there,

Bill Rowe

St. Louis Audubon Society

Subject: No sighting: Directions to blackbird roost
WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Here is the location of the Boone County blackbird roost (more specifically, the point it's best viewed from): https://goo.gl/maps/qiWS8UEfKu2azXw28 <https://goo.gl/maps/qiWS8UEfKu2azXw28>

I have not been up there in a while as life has been too busy, but it's likely the roost is well past peak. Here's what we reported from last year in our Bluebird article:

"By mid-March, we felt that the numbers had started to decline (eBird S65935155, 2020). By late March the de- cline was substantial (eBird S67178004, 2020), and by late April concentrated roosting had ceased (eBird S67944083, 2020)."

It may still be worth a trip as it's a beautiful setting on a clear night, and it'd be interesting to know how many birds are left. Some less-visited birding sites in the area include Fingers Lakes SP, Rocky Fork CA, and Rudolf Bennett CA, all of which have interesting habitats and aren't likely to have many people.

The archive is "searchable" too, so it's possible to search for "blackbird

Hi Beth
I do have a link to the Blackbird Roost, but will need to send from my
phone. I’m not sure if it is still active though. I know at some point they
quit roosting together and spread out over their breeding territories. Not
sure when that happens. Message me back privately and I’ll send from my
phone.

Edge has great advice for birding guides and as a Columbia birder I would
say that Rock Bridge State Park has some great birds and trails. As
migration heats ups you’re likely to get good warblers at the Devil’s Ice
Box trail. You can also consult ebird to see what trails have been visited
recently by going to the “explore” tab and then putting in “Boone” in the
explore region search bar. When you push the “complete checklists” spot at
the top you’ll see where everyone here has been birding. You can get good
ideas of where to go and what they saw from those.

Good luck!

Lottie gave some very good advice for warbler i.d.

I agree with Seb. The yellow tones to the underside in the photo threw me off a bit (good example of why a single photo is often not the greatest i.d. aid), but the undertail pattern and the dark facial marking clinched it for me.

It should be noted that Yellow-rumped Warblers (a.k.a. Myrtle and a.k.a. "butter butts) come in an oft-confusing array of plumages, especially as we see them in all stages of molt here in Missouri. The breeding plumage males are striking birds, unlike the females, wintering males, immatures of both sexes, and intermediate molts flitting around in fall, early winter and spring.

YRWAs are unusual for warblers in that they have an extremely varied diet--insects and berries, for example, so are able to exploit many food sources and thus stay in the southern US over winter, rather than go farther south as most warblers must. The dietary range is due to their ability to digest a greater variety of foods and to obtain that food by more varied means than most warblers. That is, they may feed by hopping around on leaves, making fly-catching forays, etc.

They may once again be determined to be a separate species from the western version, which has a yellow-throat. That one is currently known as a sub-species, Audubon's. On rare occasions we may see one in Missouri.

Hi Karen
I am not an expert by any measure, but I did want to comment after looking at your picture.
Size is hard in a photo, but since you stated it is a warbler, I am looking at it as a very small bird. The undertail pattern is very distinct. Along with the wing bars and yellow wash on the belly (which may or may not be there...sometimes it is just a reflection) it led me to a female Northern Parula. The tail pattern could also lead us to a possible Cerulean Warbler—Not sure if they are expected for your location (I know some areas of St. Louis have them). But the bill seems really long. That could be the photograph.

I feel certain it’s not a yellow-throated—streaks are going the wrong way—They go more from head to tail—I’ve never seen a yellow-throated without a bold yellow throat in person or in a field guide. Also the tail pattern would be different. Now, the bill appears very long and Crossley states for a yellow-throated “Massive bill really stands out: very long, though easy to overlook among the complexities of a such a striking head pattern”. I do think the bill does look massive, but I then come back to the undertail pattern and what appear to be more wing bars than black and white streaking.

I.D.ing with just a photo is so tricky. One tool that might be helpful for you to get (FREE!) are the Quickfinder Guide from the Warbler guide. You go to this link
[ https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdl.allaboutbirds.org%2Fdownload_the_warbler_guide_quickfinders&data=04%7C01%7C%7Cbe0173d0de4747c29b9f08d8fa8cb924%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637534829628368647%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=%2BGBsSy6ayP5mPEZpfy6ITy2AsRVgHal8n6Cz1nUyFhA%3D&reserved=0 | https://dl.allaboutbirds.org/download_the_warbler_guide_quickfinders ]
and then you can download and print them. If you don’t download them and print straight from the site they’ll print very small. If you download first, they will fill your page. I have a set I carry in my birding bag that are laminated for quick access. There is a page for undertail coverts, side view, bottom view, and 45 degree view. You do need to sign up for the Cornell Lab newsletter (which is great) but you can unsubscribe at any time. This is a trustworthy site.

I will also send you a general guideline to the order that the warblers arrive in the spring. Edge Wade shared this with me when I was a new birder and it helped me often narrow to a few species to consider. It helped me anticipate which species would most likely be arriving and I would study those few and their songs before going out on a walk. Of course, it is just a guide. We are definitely in the midst of the first wave. I’m on my iPad right now and need to get on my computer to send that.

Again, not certain of your bird, but these are some resources to consider. It’s a very fun, exciting time in migration, but also can be frustrating. I think it’s great you got as good a picture as you did considering they are so tiny.

I’m sorry I can’t say for sure what your bird is, but thought the process another birder goes through might help you with your process.

Good luck

Hello!
Yesterday I was at Willmore Park in St. Louis City and saw several of these birds in the tree above where we were sitting (picture attached - sorry it is not in sharper focus). Is it a warbler? I thought it was a Yellow-throated warbler but maybe not enough yellow?

Thank you for your help. As a newer bird-watcher, I always learn so much from this listserv.

Hi Karen
I am not an expert by any measure, but I did want to comment after looking at your picture.
Size is hard in a photo, but since you stated it is a warbler, I am looking at it as a very small bird. The undertail pattern is very distinct. Along with the wing bars and yellow wash on the belly (which may or may not be there...sometimes it is just a reflection) it led me to a female Northern Parula. The tail pattern could also lead us to a possible Cerulean WarblerNot sure if they are expected for your location (I know some areas of St. Louis have them). But the bill seems really long. That could be the photograph.

I feel certain its not a yellow-throatedstreaks are going the wrong wayThey go more from head to tailIve never seen a yellow-throated without a bold yellow throat in person or in a field guide. Also the tail pattern would be different. Now, the bill appears very long and Crossley states for a yellow-throated Massive bill really stands out: very long, though easy to overlook among the complexities of a such a striking head pattern. I do think the bill does look massive, but I then come back to the undertail pattern and what appear to be more wing bars than black and white streaking.

I.D.ing with just a photo is so tricky. One tool that might be helpful for you to get (FREE!) are the Quickfinder Guide from the Warbler guide. You go to this link
https://dl.allaboutbirds.org/download_the_warbler_guide_quickfinders<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdl.allaboutbirds.org%2Fdownload_the_warbler_guide_quickfinders&data=04%7C01%7C%7Cbe0173d0de4747c29b9f08d8fa8cb924%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637534829628368647%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=%2BGBsSy6ayP5mPEZpfy6ITy2AsRVgHal8n6Cz1nUyFhA%3D&reserved=0>
and then you can download and print them. If you dont download them and print straight from the site theyll print very small. If you download first, they will fill your page. I have a set I carry in my birding bag that are laminated for quick access. There is a page for undertail coverts, side view, bottom view, and 45 degree view. You do need to sign up for the Cornell Lab newsletter (which is great) but you can unsubscribe at any time. This is a trustworthy site.

I will also send you a general guideline to the order that the warblers arrive in the spring. Edge Wade shared this with me when I was a new birder and it helped me often narrow to a few species to consider. It helped me anticipate which species would most likely be arriving and I would study those few and their songs before going out on a walk. Of course, it is just a guide. We are definitely in the midst of the first wave. Im on my iPad right now and need to get on my computer to send that.

Again, not certain of your bird, but these are some resources to consider. Its a very fun, exciting time in migration, but also can be frustrating. I think its great you got as good a picture as you did considering they are so tiny.

Im sorry I cant say for sure what your bird is, but thought the process another birder goes through might help you with your process.

Good luck

Hello!
Yesterday I was at Willmore Park in St. Louis City and saw several of these birds in the tree above where we were sitting (picture attached - sorry it is not in sharper focus). Is it a warbler? I thought it was a Yellow-throated warbler but maybe not enough yellow?

Thank you for your help. As a newer bird-watcher, I always learn so much from this listserv.

Instead of risking my hair, I brushed our Persian cat’s fur and placed it on, and wrapped around a dowel above our meal worm feeder. Chickadees were the ones pulling thin strings for nest materials.

She didn't know what it was, and the bird left when she waved her hand behind her head. Obviously, it was gathering nesting material. A few minutes later, the titmouse returned for another try. No luck, though it might have scored if it had only grabbed one or two hairs instead of being greedy. I suppose our laughter scared it away for good.

I'm going to Columbia for birding later this month and would love to get some suggestions other than Eagle Bluffs—I will definitely go there.

Has anyone visited the blackbird roost lately? If you think it's still a good time to visit, please provide directions. I thought I had saved them, but I can't find them.

We once had a wooden tiki statue with horse hair hair on its head sitting on our porch. A titmouse plucked out all the horse hair, but apparently was not finished with its nest, because it came back and landed on my husbands head and started plucking his hair. My husband, being the all-round great naturalist that he is, sat still and let the titmouse collect as much as it needed. I think I do have a photo of it somewhere.

No photo, but my wife and I were sitting on our deck a couple of springs ago, when a titmouse landed on the back of her chair and started tugging on a beakful of her hair. She didn't know what it was, and the bird left when she waved her hand behind her head. Obviously, it was gathering nesting material. A few minutes later, the titmouse returned for another try. No luck, though it might have scored if it had only grabbed one or two hairs instead of being greedy. I suppose our laughter scared it away for good.

I've just watched a brief video of a titmouse atop an older dog plucking

I've a pic from 2002 of a titmouse doing the same from an old golden. That

Anyone interested can email me.

I also have a mostly blind Goldfinch at my feeders and bird bath. On very
windy days she sits inside the dome feeder that whacks back and forth
freneticly. I get ill watching for 20 seconds. She's going on her 2nd week.
Any suggestions? She has to stay within a 12' radius and very nearly gets

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Happy rainy spring morning, MOBIRDS,

Northeast Missouri needs some love! There are 2 vacant Breeding Bird Survey routes in Missouri that need filling - Rensselaer in Ralls County and Madison in Monroe County. If you know your bird ID by sight and sound and can help by fill either vacancies on one morning between May 27 - July 7, please contact MDC BBS Coordinator Janet Haslerig by email at <Janet.Haslerig...> or call 573-522-4115, ext. 3198. More details about the ask below. News release coming out Monday calling to fill these 2 vacancies.
____________________________________________________________________________________

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) needs volunteers to assist with two vacant bird-observation routes in Missouri as part of the 2021 North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) May 27 - July 7. The two Missouri BBS routes that need volunteers are Rensselaer in Ralls County and Madison in Monroe County. Volunteers will need to conduct their survey one day during the May 27 - July 7 survey period.

The BBS was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is back for 2021. BBS is a long-term, large-scale, international bird monitoring program that started in 1966. The purpose of the BBS is to track the status and trends of North American bird populations. Each year during mostly June -- the height of the bird-breeding season for most of the U.S. - BBS volunteers collect bird-population data along roadside survey routes to help. For more info on the BBS, visit pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/<https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/>.

Each survey route is 24.5 miles long with stops at half-mile intervals. At each stop, volunteers conduct three-minute point counts where they record data on the bird species and numbers they see or hear within a quarter-mile radius. Surveys must start one-half hour before sunrise and take about five hours to complete. Volunteers need only conduct their survey route once during the survey period.

For more information or to volunteer, contact MDC Resource Scientist and MDC BBS Coordinator Janet Haslerig by email at <Janet.Haslerig...><mailto:<Janet.Haslerig...> or call 573-522-4115, ext. 3198.

Haslerig said volunteers need access to suitable transportation, must have good hearing and eyesight, and must be able to identify all birds in the area. All new BBS volunteers must successfully complete an online methodology training program before their data can be used.

Thanks, and happy spring birding!

A friend posted a video of a pair of House Finch shredding a nylon window

While I am not shocked by this bird behavior, I've never seen nor heard of
it before. This video was taken April 6 in Columbia, MO.

This evening there were between 200-300 shorebirds in first section of pool
10 along the main road (there is a small white sign in the water that says
"10 Southwest Boundary"). I never made it any further than that.

Largest percentage were pectoral sandpipers, followed by lesser yellowlegs,
a few greater yellowlegs and a couple of least sandpipers. There were also
2 dunlin in mostly basic plumage.

Lots of coots and teal still around. In distribution channel across from
pool 10 there was a small flock of lesser scaup, ring-necked, ruddies and
one redhead.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

I’ve been hearing the brown thrasher since Mar 31, but have yet to see or get a photo. Chipping sparrows arrived yesterday, Apr 5, and have been seen today around the water feature and feeders.

The male northern flicker that roosted in our nest box over the winter appears to now have a mate. For the last couple days, I’ve seen a pair feeding on the ground in our open field. But they’re very skittish, leaving even if I’m standing among the trees/bushes on the edge of the field 50-75 yds away.

Here’s an interesting observation. During the winter, the male would routinely enter the nest box approx 20-30 minutes before sunset. But a week ago, I never saw it and left at sunset. Then a couple days ago, I checked again and stayed longer - it entered the nest box 10 minutes after sunset, with no sign of the female. Last year I trapped numerous starlings that tried to claim this nest box. This year, no sign of starlings around that box, so maybe the male has successfully defended it.

It should be interesting to see how this develops

Hello!Yesterday I was at Willmore Park in St. Louis City and saw several of these birds in the tree above where we were sitting (picture attached - sorry it is not in sharper focus). Is it a warbler? I thought it was a Yellow-throated warbler but maybe not enough yellow? 
Thank you for your help. As a newer bird-watcher, I always learn so much from this listserv.

I had what was either a Black Duck or Mottled Duck late Sunday afternoon at Clarence Cannon NWR today. after passing some pictures around on line the consensus seems to be Mottled Duck {there was a MODU at this location last spring). It was hanging with a female Mallard, just like last year. As you enter the refuge the road runs North from the visitors center, there will be water on the right hand side of the road. The MODU was in this water along the far weed line. The bird and the Mallard flew about 100 yards east deeper into the marsh and out of sight.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

The O'Fallon Park island egret/heron rookery is bustling with activity.
There were well over 100 Great Egrets building nests, as well as at least
10 Black-crowned Night Herons. I only viewed the island from the south and
west sides. I did not see any Snowy or Cattle Egrets, but I could have
missed them.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S84805664

I also did a quick run by the Central West End nesting area. I found a few
Great Egrets and Little Blues at the Manresa Center, but didn't see any
obvious nest-building activity. The birds were in the same trees that were
the main Great Egret nest trees the last couple of years. I did not check
on the Olive St side.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S84805463

Probably the easiest way to reach the O'Fallon Park site is to park on West
Florissant just south of the island (you can't miss it). It is just a short
walk from the road to the pond and island.

Good Birding!

Late morning walk (11-noon) on a warm and beautiful day. Walk north trail to the narrow cutoff trail to the east. I did not walk the west trail that leads to the "beaver ponds". Got a good sound recording of Louisiana Waterthrush and Yellow-throated Warbler singing back-to-back.

Notable birds:
4 Yellow-throated Warblers
2 Louisiana Waterthrush
1 Eastern Towhee
1 Eastern Phoebe
1 Belted Kingfisher

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Margie & I spent a day in southern Barry County each of the last two weekends. On Saturday, March 27th, the highlights were the nesting Bald Eagles with two kids, (4th or 5th year now?) Osprey flyover, Eastern Phoebe, Tree Swallow, Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow-throated Warbler, Black & White Warbler, and great views of the Pine Warbler, which was in the pines next to camp smokey in Roaring River State Park. We normally don’t see them in the park, usually in the adjoining Mark Twain National Forest.

Today, April 4, we noticed increased numbers of the four warbler species from last weekend, especially the Black & White. We added Northern Parula to the warbler list and saw first of year birds in Barn Swallow, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Purple Martin, Scissor-tail Flycatcher, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Eastern Towhee, Wood Duck, and Great Blue Heron. Margie also heard a distant Red-eyed Vireo.
Wild flowers so far include Rue Anemone and False Rue Anemone, Buttercups, Bellwort, Birds foot Violets, Wild Phlox, Trillium, Trout Lily, Wild Ginger. May Apples are up. Our Virginia Bluebells and Celandine Poppies are starting to bloom here at home.

The Munsey Cemetery road (FR1162), east and downstream of the park, goes downhill to Roaring River. Apparently, the landowner has had his gut full of trespassing fisherman, floaters, campers, and partiers. Maybe Covid had something to do with it. There is now a cabled fence all along the river. Stopping to see birds will become more of a challenge since there is not much of a pull off any longer. Birders beware.

The Yellow-Throated Warblers are still at Castlewood in the same area. They were the first birds I took note of when I arrived as there were at least three singing back and forth from different spots in the area Debbie identified yesterday. I also was able to get pictures of five different Yellow Rumped Warblers on the ground/road. Pics on the checklist... Overall, it was a great day to go birding!

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

Since we have no bluebirds so far this year, I’m expecting more tree swallows to claim nest boxes. Typically, we have 3-4 pairs.

So far, we have at least 4 pairs that are claiming boxes, but several boxes off by themselves are still available, and are occasionally being checked out.

Today, while working in the yard, I had a pair repeatedly dive bomb me, presumably because I was too close to their nest box. In my experience, they typically don’t dive bomb until they’ve begun nesting.

These feisty little birds are a joy to watch soar around the yard - should be a fun summer.

On this warm (78F), but windy (15 mph) Easter day, I took some time to get some photos, which can be found at:
flickr.com/photos/dgetman/sets

Perhaps appropriately, I just finished a new book by Bernd Heinrich “White Feathers: The Nesting Lives of Tree Swallows”. Tree swallows, after they build their nest, line them with white feathers. Bernd did some interesting experiments with providing white feathers. If you haven’t read any books by him, I’d recommend him - I’ve enjoyed most of his books.

Today I observed a flock of about 15 American Golden Plovers in a field
near Spirit Airport in Chesterfield.
If you turn on to Wings Corporate Dr. go straight ahead past two buildings.
The birds were in the field on the left.
I got out of my car to get closer photos. When I walked into the field the
entire flock flew up and circled around and
landed in another area of the same field. I went after them and the same
thing occurred about 3 times. When I left
at about 2pm today the flock was still in the field.
I took a few photos at :

I’m afraid I wasn’t able to relocate the bird. There are fewer shorebirds this morning than there were yesterday evening when Paul and I saw it. I do hope birders will continue to check the area (at least two looking now) and also Eagle Bluffs, which is a short distance away.

Moment - well, several long moments - of awe & wonder yesterday on Lost
Valley Trail as a pair of phoebes caught my eye swooping & sallying for
insects then carrying nesting materials. Then a flittery flight and a
stunning yellow-throated warbler dove to the creek to drink and bathe. I
held my breath, stood stockstill with bins glued to my eyes and the bird as
he took his time splashing around, then flew to a nearby branch to shake
off and preen.

I didn’t find a black and white warbler or a Louisiana water thrush, but
I’ll remember this encounter with my FOS YTWA for a long, long time.

Best birding,

I went to Poosey CA , NW Livingston County today. I was driving down one of the gravel access roads, about eleven fifteen, when a Short-eared Owl flew up. It landed on the top of a medium sized Cedar tree. I watched it for probably ten or fifteen minutes, and took a bunch of pictures. It was hanging on as the twenty plus MPH wind bounced it around.    When I came back to my vehicle about one-thirty a couple of Barred Owls started calling back and forth to each other. Then as I was driving out on the same road a light phase Rough-legged Hawk flew in and landed on a wood fence post. Watched it for awhile and took more pictures.   On the way back to town saw six Turkey Vultures perched on an old Barn. Of course had to stop and take more pictures.    I might have seen more stuff but I discovered when I got out there I had forgotten My Binoculars! At least I had my Camera!
Happy Easter all, Steve <KinderChillicothedmkinder...>

My wife and I were sitting outside enjoying the weather and nature, when at 8:00 pm I noticed a Turkey Vulture flying very low towards our house. Then there were two followed by eight more. They circled for a minute and then they began landing in a large Pecan tree about 50yds from the house. They were close enough that we could hear their talons scratching the bark as they jockied for the best place. While we were watching that show a Barred owl landed in a tree directly over the house.

What a way to enjoy the evening.

Paul McKenzie and I are looking at over 200 shorebirds at Wetland Cell 1, in the fourth sub-cell from the west. Most are Pecs, but we’ve also found a Dunlin, a Baird’s, Least Sandpiper, and Lesser Yellowlegs along with Snipe and Killdeer. And three Brewer’s Blackbirds on the same flat.

Good birding everyone,

Just wondering if the two one way loops are still one way. I dont recall seeing the signs the last few years and over the last few years I have seen particularly on the back loop more and more people exiting the wrong direction. Of course if they are no longer one way then it is not the wrong direction.
Just curious.

BTW, for all Shoveler, Blue Wing Teal, Green Wing Teal, Gadwall, and especially Coot fans going there you would be in heaven today. I have seen that many Blue Wing Teal there but dont think I have seen so many of the others. Nothing rare but extremely high counts of those there.

Thanks,

just throwing this out there for thought.

We live on a black top. There are probably a half a dozen culverts every
mile. The furbearers do not use the culverts. Road kill on our road is
high.

There are a lot of turkey vultures feeding on road kill along the road.
More worrisome to me is the large number of bald eagles who also feast on
these road kills. Just today, as I was driving home, a bald eagle was
feeding along the road and flew across the road in front of me.

We have a large population of coyotes here and one would think that they
would reduce the number of furbearers (which I am sure happens), but we
still have a lot of road kill. Our trail cameras reveal the presence of a
lot of furbearers here. (A couple of nights ago I almost stepped on a
skunk by our deck when I went out to bring in our dog.)

My main thought is that people just need to slow down on our highways and
pay attention to the road.

One more thing I might add to Edge’s good summary. Many overpass/underpass corridors in the West are built on traditional migration routes of elk, deer, or other large herding mammals. These are routes taken between summer and winter ranges. The corridors may accommodate other species, but the main function is to prevent deaths during these seasonal migrations.

Can't let this go unaddressed. Yes, the amount of trash on our highways is deplorable. Yes, its presence may draw some wildlife to roadsides. Yes, culvert-style animal crossings save wildlife.

I love Colorado, too, but how much oak-hickory deciduous forest does Colorado have with highways criss-crossing every mile or so? How many opossums, raccoons, skunks, gray and fox squirrels per square mile?

I kinda like our neighboring states (although I still contend that the best thing ever to come out of Kansas is I-70--and maybe a few very special people), but, seriously, again, other than extreme southern Illinois, eastern Kansas, and the miniscule amount of untilled loess hills, Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois have very small amounts of oak-hickory forest/woodland, and support substantially fewer small mammals living near highways (how's that for a run-on sentence?).

It is economically unfeasible to build culvert-type animal crossings within every mile of highway--heck, we can't even afford space or dollars for shoulders along some of our ridge-riding roads. Let's not underestimate how attractive the road verge grass is for grazer/browsers like deer.

One of the factors that must be considered when musing and bemoaning the loss of wildlife lives is that we have an abundance of wildlife in Missouri for a variety of reasons (most of them good reasons like our MDC and State Parks). There is a lot of habitat supporting wildlife in Missouri, rather than human housing, crop and grazing land, or desert or mountainous land.

I haven't looked at any stats for this commentary, but consider Missouri's percentage of public land, percentage of land not in housing or crops, or in monotypical evergreen forest or sparse cover, etc., compared to others, and the presence of wildlife-supporting land and the resulting abundance of wildlife can be seen to be a major reason for why we have so much roadkill: we have more small mammals.

Wendy and Terry,
Interesting thread! This is something that drives me absolutely nuts. Take a drive through other states any direction from Missouri and you will be amazed by the stark contrast in the number of roadkill and, I have to throw this out there, Trash.

Wendy your questions flipped a switch in my head. I can’t help but wonder if animals are coming closer to the roads because of all the trash that people are throwing out of their car Windows. I’ve had people toss entire bags of trash out of their windows right in front me.

Some of the western states have the roadkill issue figured out, for the most part, with their wildlife overpasses and underpasses. It’s a pleasure to drive through most parts of colorado. I don’t see Missouri ever incorporating anything like that into their road plans.

What can be done to decrease the amount of roadkill? Having 33 deaths in 35 miles of such diverse species is outrageous in my view. Is the speed limit too high in that area? Would signage warning of wildlife help at all? Are there opportunities fir an underpass (perhaps a culvert?). What can be done?

As I traveled to St. Joseph today, my wife and I noticed quite a few roadkills. So, on the way back, we kept a tally of them. For the approximately 35 miles, we were able to see 33 roadkills comprising 11 species. They were as follows:

Raccoon - 10
Opossum - 8
Muskrat - 2
WTDeer - 2
E. Fox Squirrel - 2
Red-tailed Hawk - 2
Barred Owl -1
Striped Skunk - 1
E. Cottontail - 1
Coyote - 1
Black Rat Snake - 1
Unknown - 2

We should have kept track of Turkey Vultures on the way home as they were often visible soaring but none were near the carcasses. All this made me reflect about their population over the years? Has it increased significantly? I don't ever remember there being a lack of seeing them when it wasn't winter?

I also remember as a teenager, when trapping and selling furs wasn't as taboo in our culture, that raccoons were seldom seen as roadkills. First, the population was surely lower due to all the trapping and the strong fur market. But also a person could pick up a road-killed raccoon, not even skin it, and sell it for 35.00 or more to a local fur buyer. Very few dead raccoons were ever seen on the roads because of that.

The recent thread concerning Black Vultures and their predation on calves also comes to mind. In the northern part of the state, Black Vultures are not seen. I have no idea if their population has increased very much over the years or not? Would the reduced trapping of furbearers today (due to such low prices) and the associated increase in roadkills have influenced an increase in either Turkey Vultures or Black Vultures over the years?

If anyone has some knowledge of their population trends, please share that information if you would?

Enjoy the Spring!!

See the December 2016 issue of The Bluebird for accomplishments/contributions described when he was presented the Rudolf Bennitt Distinguished Service Award.  To find that article, go to mobirds.org, then hover over the MBS header.  The 5th item in the dropdown menu is Bluebird Quarterly.  Scroll down to the 2000-2019 group, click on 2016 and when it opens, click on December.  A pdf will download.  The article is on page 121. 
As the book neared the end of preparation Brad was much like an expectant father.  He didn't cut his hair--promising not to do it until the book was done.  He was fearful of something happening to damage the original artwork, and guarded them carefully.  What a treasure he left us.

I need another bird book like I need a hole in my head but I couldn’t pass up Birds in Missouri by Brad Jacobs when I saw it at REI.  This book is humongous and very well thought out.  I’m already diving in and I think this book will be my best resource for years to come!

Missouri Birders, I'm passing further information regarding the sale of the Eleven Point State Park received via Facebook post from a friend. - original source: Mary Nemecek.

IMO, The Eleven Point River might me the greatest single resource for the well-being of migratory songbirds that reside in Missouri during the breeding and nesting cycle.

SAVE ELEVEN POINT STATE PARK

Your help is needed immediately to save Eleven Point State Park.
House Bill 1046 (HB 1046), a land conveyance bill, would authorize the Department of Natural Resources to sell or transfer state park property in Oregon County along the Eleven Point River. During the public hearing there was misinformation presented that was not clarified during the hearing leading people to believe incorrectly:

Incorrectly stated- That there were no encumbrances on the sale of the park.

Fact: The deed requires the property always remain a state park
Incorrectly stated- That the proceeds from the sale could be used to clean up residential areas contaminated by lead.

Fact: Any proceeds from the sale must go back to the restoration fund at the US Department of the Interior

Incorrectly stated- That the property was not legally purchased

Fact: Eleven Point State Park was legally purchased by restoration funds intended to replace natural resources damaged by mining. This fund is overseen by the Department of Interior and managed by the trustees: US Fish and Wildlife, US Forest Service and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources

Incorrectly stated- That the land described in the bill was only the narrow federal easement along the Eleven Point River.

Fact: The bill describes the entire State Park.

To be clear: The park funds cannot be used for anything else--they cannot be used for remediation (cleanup of contaminated areas is done with separate EPA Superfund money); and the legal description contained in the bill includes the entire Eleven Point State Park, all the way to Highway Y

Subject: No sighting - Vulture populations and roadkills, etc...
WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

As I traveled to St. Joseph today, my wife and I noticed quite a few
roadkills. So, on the way back, we kept a tally of them. For the
approximately 35 miles, we were able to see 33 roadkills comprising 11
species. They were as follows:

Raccoon - 10
Opossum - 8
Muskrat - 2
WTDeer - 2
E. Fox Squirrel - 2
Red-tailed Hawk - 2
Barred Owl -1
Striped Skunk - 1
E. Cottontail - 1
Coyote - 1
Black Rat Snake - 1
Unknown - 2

We should have kept track of Turkey Vultures on the way home as they were
often visible soaring but none were near the carcasses. All this made me
reflect about their population over the years? Has it increased
significantly? I don't ever remember there being a lack of seeing them when
it wasn't winter?

I also remember as a teenager, when trapping and selling furs wasn't as
taboo in our culture, that raccoons were seldom seen as roadkills. First,
the population was surely lower due to all the trapping and the strong fur
market. But also a person could pick up a road-killed raccoon, not even
skin it, and sell it for 35.00 or more to a local fur buyer. Very few dead
raccoons were ever seen on the roads because of that.

The recent thread concerning Black Vultures and their predation on calves
also comes to mind. In the northern part of the state, Black Vultures are
not seen. I have no idea if their population has increased very much over
the years or not? Would the reduced trapping of furbearers today (due to
such low prices) and the associated increase in roadkills have influenced
an increase in either Turkey Vultures or Black Vultures over the years?

If anyone has some knowledge of their population trends, please share that
information if you would?

Enjoy the Spring!!

Brad's magnum opus (at least as it applies to books) is just one of his legacies. See the December 2016 issue of The Bluebird for accomplishments/contributions described when he was presented the Rudolf Bennitt Distinguished Service Award. To find that article, go to mobirds.org, then hover over the MBS header. The 5th item in the dropdown menu is Bluebird Quarterly. Scroll down to the 2000-2019 group, click on 2016 and when it opens, click on December. A pdf will download. The article is on page 121.

As the book neared the end of preparation Brad was much like an expectant father. He didn't cut his hair--promising not to do it until the book was done. He was fearful of something happening to damage the original artwork, and guarded them carefully. What a treasure he left us.

I need another bird book like I need a hole in my head but I couldn’t pass up Birds in Missouri by Brad Jacobs when I saw it at REI. This book is humongous and very well thought out. I’m already diving in and I think this book will be my best resource for years to come!

Paul McKenzie reports a small kettle of Briad-winged hawks at Bradford

Bradford fields and some on fields on the southside of Vemer Ford road.

RB merganser was still present when I left and Purple Martins had joined

Dear friends,



A few years ago, National Audubon published three brochures, two of which
were called Healthy Schoolyards and Healthy Backyards. It was 8 x 11 in
size. I am looking for 300 of the Healthy Backyards OR a brochure that
perhaps your local group has printed or created on how to turn your
backyards into a healthy habitat for year-round and migratory birds. We are
unable to have Wings Over Weston this year, so we are giving away 300
activity bags on April 30 and May 1. Id like to include something in the
bags on backyard habitats.



I am willing to pay for the brochures. Im also willing to drive and come
get them. If anyone has suggestions or can help me out, please contact me
off list.



Thank you so much!

The Clark Wednesday bird car explored Franklin County hot spots today. We’re still in the car as I write.
The most memorable moment came this morning at Colter Access. A Carolina Wren sat atop a 20-foot tree, singing loudly. As I stood ten feet away, Bill Mees yelled, “Bird!”
A Sharp-shinned Hawk zoomed in and took the wren to the ground, administered the coup de gras, and flew off with it.
Cold weather is not the only survival challenge for the wrens.

Took the Birders Direct Route from our vaccination appointment in Moberly
back to Columbia via Hungry Mother CA in Howard County, where a LEOW was
reported Monday.

We searched cedar thickets south of the parking lot and found zero owls,
but some of the stands of large old cedars with open understory and mossy

Growing up we raised cattle and didn't really have an issue with black vultures (BLVU); however, since I have moved away from home, I have heard the neighbors and my family have both had issues with vultures mutilating/killing their livestock. My guess is that I never saw that growing up because BLVU were so much less populous than they are now, but maybe I just never noticed them. The other side is that the general farmer did not realize that anything changed with the vultures because they are not birdwatchers and do not know the difference between a turkey vulture and a black vulture; luckily many news outlets have actually done a decent job describing what is not a black vulture in other states (Arkansas is the state that immediately comes to mind).

From what I have heard from my family and the neighbors is that the black vultures tend to go after immediately newborn calves that are still wet with afterbirth and are not yet mobile. Our family has also lost a cow, most likely, to a BLVU during birth. My stepfather said that the cow was having trouble passing the calf, as they often do, and when he got out there to pull the calf a few vultures had pulled the intestines out of the cow. I assume he had to put that cow down, so I attribute that loss of the cow to vultures as well even though it could be argued that the same outcome may have occurred without vultures present. I know our neighbor has lost at least one calf, but I do not know if that trend continued or not. That vulture was caught in the act and the calf was still alive, but it did not survive the night.

Edge stated that she could not find any videos of vultures actively attacking a calf, but I found two that, although there is no vulture-calf contact, it seems pretty evident to me that without cow or human intervention the vultures would have succeeded. The first video is not graphic, but the second video does show a mutilated calf actively being eaten by BLVU. The author of the second video is based in the UK, but the vultures still appear to be black vultures; my assumption that he is traveling somewhere within BLVU range when the video was recorded.

I googled Black Vultures Killing Calves and looked at several videos. There were several statements about the vultures attacking animals, and finding dead animals with vultures on/near them, but none I found actually showed vultures killing calves. What am I missing?

Also, one of the videos actually showed a cut of a Turkey Vulture while the man was talking about Black Vultures. That takes us back to Jeff's comment--most people don't know the difference between the species, and lack of understanding of the scavengers' role is likely to lead people to kill Turkey Vultures.

Here is an article about black vultures killing calves.

A rancher has to feed and water a cow for a year in order to have a calf
out of her, and to have that calf immediately killed by black vultures
once it is born is a big loss to the farmer.

Google "black vultures killing calves" and you can see videos of the black
vultures attacking calves.

Growing up we raised cattle and didn't really have an issue with black vultures (BLVU); however, since I have moved away from home, I have heard the neighbors and my family have both had issues with vultures mutilating/killing their livestock. My guess is that I never saw that growing up because BLVU were so much less populous than they are now, but maybe I just never noticed them. The other side is that the general farmer did not realize that anything changed with the vultures because they are not birdwatchers and do not know the difference between a turkey vulture and a black vulture; luckily many news outlets have actually done a decent job describing what is not a black vulture in other states (Arkansas is the state that immediately comes to mind).

From what I have heard from my family and the neighbors is that the black vultures tend to go after immediately newborn calves that are still wet with afterbirth and are not yet mobile. Our family has also lost a cow, most likely, to a BLVU during birth. My stepfather said that the cow was having trouble passing the calf, as they often do, and when he got out there to pull the calf a few vultures had pulled the intestines out of the cow. I assume he had to put that cow down, so I attribute that loss of the cow to vultures as well even though it could be argued that the same outcome may have occurred without vultures present. I know our neighbor has lost at least one calf, but I do not know if that trend continued or not. That vulture was caught in the act and the calf was still alive, but it did not survive the night.

Edge stated that she could not find any videos of vultures actively attacking a calf, but I found two that, although there is no vulture-calf contact, it seems pretty evident to me that without cow or human intervention the vultures would have succeeded. The first video is not graphic, but the second video does show a mutilated calf actively being eaten by BLVU. The author of the second video is based in the UK, but the vultures still appear to be black vultures; my assumption that he is traveling somewhere within BLVU range when the video was recorded.

In no way am I against black vultures, but at the same time, I do understand the concern for farmers.

Since we had to be in Kirksville yesterday anyway, we ran out to Thousand Hills State Park. Peter K had reported a Common Loon and some Horned Grebes at the lake there. I found four Common Loons in breeding plumage all together, but around one- thirty, when I observed them, they were all tucked in resting. There was a raft of Ducks, mostly Lesser Scaup, and saw three Pied-billed Grebes but did not see any Horned Grebes.

All,

On Tuesday evening HB 1046, sale of Eleven Point State Park, passed out of committee and can be heard on the Missouri House floor anytime.

Besides an attempt to sell public land, there are a number of issues with this bill including the coordinates listed in the bill are for the entire park but the language of the fiscal note is just for the scenic easement along the river.

For more information, the Missouri Parks Association has put together a fact sheet you can view at:

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

With the BIG south wind yesterday, it seems a good number of new migrants have filtered into the area of central MO.

At Saline Valley Conservation Area today, a short time for lunch at the ford that crosses Saline Creek were two Yellow-throated Warblers and one Louisiana Waterthrush and about 1.5 miles back toward Eldon was yet another Yellow-throated Warbler and Louisiana Waterthrush.

Back at home this evening as I stepped outside, there were varying chip notes from the tree tops. I spotted at minimum 5 Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Yellow-throated Warbler and a Northern Parula loosely flocked, moving through northward.

As night continued to fall, I spotted an adult, no-nonsense Cooper's Hawk gliding low over the trees and the neighbor's field into the WNW wind. It exhibited such grace and strength even into a headwind . . . without beating a wing.

Use this trickle of the vanguard to sharpen your ID skills, to prepare you for the opening the floodgates of migration!

Bird on!

Back in 1985 I had the great fortune to work with one of the pioneers of
bio ecological solutions. His specialty was restoring and protecting water
supplies.

John Todd of Ocean Arks International eventually won EPA's man of the year
for producing drinking water from septage and effluent waste/by product
from the city of S. Burlington and the Magic Hat Brewery in VT. He used
ONLY a greenhouse and plants. The pesticides, cosmetics, antibiotics,
disease organisms were removed emulating mother nature. Please check out
his canal clean up in China, industrial waste site in MD and the Corkscrew
Swamp Audubon's installation.
He operates only as a nonprofit and his designs are now in use throughout
the world.

My point is that you absolutely must not trust company's that assure you
things are safe or have clever names like greensafe or bioclean. Safe for
humans, wildlife, fish, pets DOES NOT mean safe for birds. In fact, one
popular product to rid algae from waterfalls specifically lists toxic to
birds. (go directly to company website - not middleman ads) and dig through
the paper work. Some companies boast a list of things like organic
certificates etc. Find the actual paper with ALL the specifics. You will be
saddened to find most of the peroxide based algaecides (registered products
mostly) have under Environmental Hazard: This product is toxic to birds,
...bees...amphibians in mating seasons etc.

Please use due diligence. I know you all care. And yes, you can have clean
clear water without hurting your very important bird gardens.

Kathleen Anderson and I saw one Vesper and three Chipping Sparrows at Whetstone Creek CA, Callaway Co., this afternoon. The Vesper was along the extension of the entrance road, north of the turn toward the barns and maintenance area. The Chippers were by Turtle Lake.

We also watched an unusual display by a female Northern Harrier. She arced high and dove steeply multiple times. We got closer in an effort to see what was below her. She continued to arc and dive, and then we saw a male "gray ghost" Northern Harrier come off the ground or low in tree, and the two flew in tandem for a couple hundred yards, the male in front. She then peeled off and the male left the immediate vicinity. Does anyone know if this was aggressive or courtship display?

I was shocked to see a Louisiana Waterthrush in my "Hope Springs" this morning! When I put this water feature in not in my wildest dreams did I expect to see a Louisiana Waterthrush. Next to all of my native plants, this was the best investment I ever made for my yard. Yes, i’m a little excited.

My wife and I are planning a birding day on Thursday. Never been to Four Rivers and haven’t been to Schell-Osage in at least 20 years. My question is, for this time of year, which would you choose to visit? Also considering a run over to Taberville to see if we can luck out with a Prairie Chicken. Thanks!

I have read that black vultures were not common in Illinois and central
Missouri in the past, but that they are making their way north as our
climate warms.

It would be good if the Farm Bureau and other agencies such as the Farm
Service Agency and Missouri Extension would start educating livestock
owners.

We are having calves now, and I have been carrying my binoculars with me.
I have not seen any black vultures at our farm, just dozens of turkey
vultures.

Growing up we raised cattle and didn't really have an issue with black vultures (BLVU); however, since I have moved away from home, I have heard the neighbors and my family have both had issues with vultures mutilating/killing their livestock. My guess is that I never saw that growing up because BLVU were so much less populous than they are now, but maybe I just never noticed them. The other side is that the general farmer did not realize that anything changed with the vultures because they are not birdwatchers and do not know the difference between a turkey vulture and a black vulture; luckily many news outlets have actually done a decent job describing what is not a black vulture in other states (Arkansas is the state that immediately comes to mind).

From what I have heard from my family and the neighbors is that the black vultures tend to go after immediately newborn calves that are still wet with afterbirth and are not yet mobile. Our family has also lost a cow, most likely, to a BLVU during birth. My stepfather said that the cow was having trouble passing the calf, as they often do, and when he got out there to pull the calf a few vultures had pulled the intestines out of the cow. I assume he had to put that cow down, so I attribute that loss of the cow to vultures as well even though it could be argued that the same outcome may have occurred without vultures present. I know our neighbor has lost at least one calf, but I do not know if that trend continued or not. That vulture was caught in the act and the calf was still alive, but it did not survive the night.

Edge stated that she could not find any videos of vultures actively attacking a calf, but I found two that, although there is no vulture-calf contact, it seems pretty evident to me that without cow or human intervention the vultures would have succeeded. The first video is not graphic, but the second video does show a mutilated calf actively being eaten by BLVU. The author of the second video is based in the UK, but the vultures still appear to be black vultures; my assumption that he is traveling somewhere within BLVU range when the video was recorded.

In no way am I against black vultures, but at the same time, I do understand the concern for farmers.

I googled Black Vultures Killing Calves and looked at several videos. There were several statements about the vultures attacking animals, and finding dead animals with vultures on/near them, but none I found actually showed vultures killing calves. What am I missing?

Also, one of the videos actually showed a cut of a Turkey Vulture while the man was talking about Black Vultures. That takes us back to Jeff's comment--most people don't know the difference between the species, and lack of understanding of the scavengers' role is likely to lead people to kill Turkey Vultures.

I guess I need to spend more time scratching around for the feature you've noted for recent records by area.

Thanks, glad to hear that my home area is not typical. We have always had them, even coming into the barn to nest or feed on the left overs from feeding the chickens!

Subject: Re: No Sighting - Carolina Wren Status
Back when I was a grad student with all the time in the world, I tracked the Carolina Wren numbers in Missouri using eBird's data. I stopped doing it a few years ago because 1) I graduated and got a 'real' 'job' and 2) eBird changed how data is accessed. It's still doable, but it's different and I didn't have time for "different".

That said, I observed a significant drop in frequency and abundance of Carolina Wren across Missouri after the last big winter dip we had in 2013 or 2014 (where we had single digit highs and double digit negative lows for more than just 24 hours). I was anticipating to have a silent spring after this year, but, for the first time ever, I have a nesting pair of Carolina Wren in my nesting box on my front porch.

Granted, we are in a suburb, so the point is made that birds would have solid access to food throughout the winter, but this did not happen previously.

Cheers and good birding,

My observation, is that the Carolina Wrens in residential areas have come through the winter in good shape. They probably had access to bird feeders during the bad weather. The birds in more "wild" habitats appear to be significantly down in numbers. This is, I believe, a natural cycle for semi-hardy species this far north. Their numbers should recover in a year or two unless we have more very bad winters weather.

I have a patch where there used to always be 5 or 6, and I almost always come across them in other birding spots. I haven't heard or seen a CARW since the deep freeze with the exception of the 2 (graciously singing for me right now) that have been in my yard for well over a year.

Nesting pair of CARW with eggs at home garden and a pair at business bird garden. I have not found their nest yet.
I do feed them live mealworms, suet and sunflower meets year round to supplement natural flood during bad weather.
I just love listening to their call.

I have a patch where there used to always be 5 or 6, and I almost always
come across them in other birding spots. I haven't heard or seen a CARW
since the deep freeze with the exception of the 2 (graciously singing for
me right now) that have been in my yard for well over a year.

I’m leaving Grand Pass now but was able to relocate the adult Golden Eagle twice during the past hour, first in a tree on the south end of Pool 5, and then moving among trees atop the levee that bisects Pool 5, which is where I left it. The date of this sighting is far from the record late date of May 1. Photos on eBird later.

Good birding everyone,

Seems @-- backwards to me, but this is what is going on in the backyard.
Two female flickers dancing, preening, dueling beaks, flashing spread tail
feathers in apparent attempts to attract attention of a single male (who
seems to show no interest whatsoever). What-the-heck is this all about?
Black moustache makes it easy to tell who is chasing whom. Quite the show.

I have not documented it on eBird, but I have a pair of CWs nesting in a yard by my home in the South City/Lindenwood Park Neighborhood area.  The pair comes through my yard at least once per day.  A picture of the male is the last photo on my IG post (@jmcspics) from 3/27.

I have had at least 3 Carolina Wrens all winter. I believe two of them are a mated pair because they appear to be inseparable. They frequently dine side by side on my mealworm feeder.

March 2021 alone using Explore in eBird shows Carolina Wren sightings all across the state, particularly I-70 south. Anecdotal evidence suggests Carolina Wren numbers were adversely affected by the bout of very cold weather but they’re still here.

I've still not sighted or heard a single Carolina Wren in my area this year and wondering if the filtered map data I'm looking at on eBird showing no records for the entire state of Missouri is correct.

Here on the west coast of MO we have Towhees as of two days ago, Brown Thrashers showing up and vocalizing and last sighting of my persistant Harlan's morph RTHA has been over a week now.

Thanks for your replies,

Yeah, it’s definitely possible. I went back and looked at several years of Lanny’s migration maps, and 2012 was crazy early! Fine with me- I’ve been anxiously awaiting their arrival 😊

We are on the early side of the spring bell curve, but Ruby-throateds in Missouri are not unheard of in late March. Here is what Robbins (2020) says:
Spring: The first arrivals are seen at the beginning of Apr in the south, a few days laterin the north. Peak is in early May. Earliest dates: three observations for 21 Mar. Highcounts: 40, 3 May 2019, Reynolds Co. (J. Runco); 30+, 26 May 1999, HornersvilleSwamp CA, Dunklin Co. (MR, B. Barber, K. Zyskowski).
So, there are earlier dates - Good reminder to put out the feeders.

Obviously as concerned as everyone else that loves our native birds, I asked a few questions. Here is some additional info.  
**The permit is up to 3 birds and they can reapply. Permit holder must be a rancher.  The max take for the state per year is 350 birds per   

**In the budget proceedings going on now in the Missouri Legislature, a line was added last week for $300,000 to MDC for Black Vulture mitigation. I'm not sure what that means and am watching to see where it goes.  

**According to the brochure from USFWS payment is available for injury to livestock:
"The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides benefits to livestock producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality if caused by attacks from avian predators and animals reintroduced into the wild by the Federal Government. LIP payments are equal to 75% of the average fair market value of the livestock."


For what it is worth.......

The permits are for agriculture only, so this program does not address the problems being experienced at state parks and boat accesses where Black Vultures have been damaging automobile soft trim parts and other items such as door trim on buildings.

Was brisk today but warming to see two Yellow-throated warblers foraging in a flowering tree in our yard today in Texas County. Nearby was a small foraging flock with the usual neighborhood C. chickadees, titmice, and GC kinglets - but in addition were two Myrtle Warblers which added to the feeling of spring with their yellow butts gleaming against dull gray twigs just starting to get green shoots. But the yellow-throated warblers foraging in flowers were a spectacular taste of neotrops on their way.
Also this morning were my first Black Vultures for the yard, though I also saw one in western Texas County a few days ago as well.
A few Chipping Sparrows have been around recently, but they don't seem to stay around.

WARNING: This message has originated from an External Source. This may be a phishing expedition that can result in unauthorized access to our IT System. Please use proper judgment and caution when opening attachments, clicking links, or responding to this email.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has established a permit system for Missouri farmers/ranchers to kill Black Vultures causing depredation to livestock. The program will be administered through the Missouri Farm Bureau. See:

[ https://mofb.org/missouri-farm-bureau-announces-black-vulture-depredation-permit/ | https://mofb.org/missouri-farm-bureau-announces-black-vulture-depredation-permit/ ]

The permits are for agriculture only, so this program does not address the problems being experienced at state parks and boat accesses where Black Vultures have been damaging automobile soft trim parts and other items such as door trim on buildings.

Natural Resources at Jackson County Parks and Rec is developing a baseline inventory of our current wildlife in the park system. Currently we are concentrating on Lake Jacomo and Blue Springs Lake. We would love to invite anyone to bird these areas and will be checking eBird for results.

When entering for Lake Jacomo please use Lake Jacomo, Jackson for the location and Blue Springs Lake, Jackson. I am especially interested in our woodcock and whippoorwill populations. I have found woodcock in a few locations this spring.

Any information is greatly appreciated

This afternoon, while taking a walk on the bluff overlooking the
Mississippi River, I noticed a vulture that looked "out of place" with the
rest of the eight or so soaring birds.

I ran and got my binoculars, and sure enough--it was a Black Vulture! I
have seen these many times in the past (in the southern United States) but
never this far north!

Right after that, a Pileated Woodpecker flew across the street! What a
great walk today!

I spent some quality time birding Adair County today (03/27/21). Good
selection of ducks with most expected species of divers and dabblers both
at Hazel Creek Lake CA and Thousand Hills SP. At Hazel Creek had an early
Osprey and several Horned Grebes, if which two were in gorgeous breeding
plumage. At Thousand Hills had a knock-out Common Loon also in breeding
plumage. Yellow-bellied sapsucker back at home.
Nice early spring birding here in NE Missoura.

I was amazed to find a flock of about 9000 blackbirds along EE Highway on the Cape Girardeau-Scott counties boundary west of Chaffee this afternoon. About 80% appear to be Brewer’s Blackbirds. Have yet to see a Rusty, and the remainder I’ve seen were Red-winged Blackbirds. Most Brewer’s I’ve ever seen outside California.

On this morning’s bird survey with Chris Edmondson, naturalist at Knob Noster SP Vernon Elsberry spotted an American Bittern on Lake Morel. We all enjoyed long looks at the bittern, which was largely out in the open. Other birds included a Golden-crown Kinglet, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (doing a fine impression of a kinglet bouncing all over a couple of trees) and several Eastern Phoebes.

River Bluffs Audubon Society will be hosting a field trip this Saturday, the 27th at 9:00 a.m. at Binder Lake, Cole County, to meet at the Bait Shop at the dam end of the lake, or the side of the lake nearest Henwick Drive.  We will stay distanced and wear masks. We will survey the lake, examine the shorebird area, and probably walk on the Audubon Trail which is no more than a moderate walking level. Those not wishing to walk can leave after we do the shorebird area. All are welcome.

I have been seeing a couple of males in my “hope Springs” on the trail cam along with the grackles for the past week.

It must be time for Northern Cardinals to start nesting: a male BHCO is "singing" in the top of a maple tree in our front yard. No females seen as yet.

For our yard cardinals, their first nest (out of 4-5 per year) is typically one BHCO chick.
