Stopped at Mann Lake about 1:30 on Friday and birded below the model
airfield.

I wasn't able to locate the short billed dowitcher but found plenty of
other interesting birds including greater and lesser yellowlegs, a very
calm snipe, semi-palmated plover, four black necked stilts, Boneparte's
gull, and Bairds, semi-palmated, pectoral and western sandpipers.

There was also the usual geese, GBH, western grebes and brown ducks on the
lake.

Hi Birders,

I found a Great Egret in the middle of Darby Road near the Paradise Creek
this morning.  Mike Scott reported it earlier but I know that this may be
the second record for Latah County I know of two other sightings for the
county that are not in eBird!

Other Birds of note:  Migration of many species is underway. Twice this week
I have observed Olive-sided Flycathcers.

Also of note.  I have observed a total of 4 Monarch Butterflies in Latah
County this year.  Phillips Farm County Park, Back yard (2) at different
times and one in the UI Arboretum!

Good Birding

Thought I'd check out Mann Lake today just to see if Keith's dowitcher
returned, but couldn't locate it. More exposed mud and lots more geese.
Some shorebirds, the usual suspects, but found this plover species. I'm
going to venture a guess at American golden-plover, though could be black
bellied. When it flew it was always away from me so couldn't see if it had
black armpits.

From: Richard Baltierra <wolfbaltierra AT gmail.com>

I spent a few hours at Kamiak Butte this afternoon to look at some
migrants. The first thing I noticed was the ridiculous amount of Wilson's
Warblers, as many as 20 individual birds were seen in feeding at once in
the open by the restrooms. I estimate about 70 birds just in the bushes
neat the restrooms! After admiring the warbler show I walked up the road
and scanned through the trees and brush in the draw on the right. I spotted
a small empid foraging low in the deciduous trees (alders?). The bird
looked great for a LEAST FLYCATCHER. It had a nice round eye ring, very
short primary project, and stubby bill. The feature I noticed first was the
high contrast between the white wing edges/wing bars and the the rest of
the bird. Unfortunately I was not able to obtain a picture as it would not
stay still for long enough. Other interesting birds include, Dusky
Flycatcher, Hammonds Flycatcher, Cassin's Vireo, Warbling Vireo, Nashville
Warbler, Orange Crowned Warbler, and a Great Horned Owl. A great afternoon!

Keith, no doubt about the ID. I think it is the subspecies hendersoni, the 
interior migrant. Probably thats just as likely there as the Pacific migrant 
caurinus. I discussed this at some length in my 1993 shorebird book.

From: Kevin Lucas <vikingcove AT gmail.com>

In April at least two Black-backed Woodpeckers were illegally shot in the
Rimrock Lake area of the Cascade Mountains in Yakima County, Washington.
Wildlife officials have just gone public about this and are seeking help.

This article in the Yakima Herald Republic shows a video clip of a person
of interest and a still image from the video of that person.

I've also posted this to the Tweeters listserv. I've heard this is on NPR,
and on the Facebook pages of National Audubon and of High Country News. If
you can help with spreading the word or with information we'd greatly
appreciate it.

Anyone with information can reach wildlife investigators at 425-883-8122.

Made a brief stop at the Steptoe sewage ponds, and came away with some nice
shorebirds. I had 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper and 2 Baird's Sandpipers along
with 2 Lesser Yellowlegs. It was nice to get 2 harder to find, shorebirds
for the county. Looking forward to getting more migrants as fall
approaches!

This actually appears to be a pretty good year for them in the inland NW,
and this is also good timing for a migrant.  They are always rare, however
(even in a good year) and should be identified with caution.

Hi birders,

 

I found a Lark Sparrow at the UI Dairy this morning. A couple of Baird's 
Sandpipers were also an exciting find for me. I got some decent pictures of 
both species and will post to eBird later today. 


 

Also, the water of both ponds has been lowered considerably, exposing some good 
mud, and the wet spot behind the dairy has been mowed, so hopefully we'll get 
some good shorebird traffic in the coming month.

I also saw a lark sparrow this week, juvenile, at my yard on Fairchild Rd
(3 m N of Fairchild AFB).  Lots of chipping sparrows moving around, too,
and two juvenile black headed grosbeaks.  These birds are not common to my
yard, so maybe starting to move about preparatory to fall?

From: steve schubert <s_schub1 AT msn.com>

Hello all,

There has been a noticeable increase in birdiness around my residence the past 
few days (20 miles SW of Colville in the Huckleberry Mountains, 2,700 ft. elev. 
in montane mixed conifer forest). I submitted a eBird checklist for Aug. 20th 
tallying 32 'yard' species seen or heard, at 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S31164472 
A marked increase not only in individual numbers of birds - expected are the 
many fledged young and post-breeders such as robins, spotted towhees, and 
finches - but there may also have been an arrival of early southbound passerine 
migrants that seemed to coincide with the development of strong, persisitent NE 
winds throughout the late afternoon and evening hours of August 18th (wind 
gusts at my property reached 21 to 34 mph between 10pm and midnight). Perhaps 
those winds from the north the night of Aug.18 -19th helped pushed a nocturnal 
migrant flight southbound? I am wondering if other inland Northwest birders 
have had any similar impressions the past few days about their yard/property 
bird sightings, or while out and about conducting birding surveys? 


 

Some yard birding highlights the past few days include an influx of several 
Yellow-rumped, Townsend, and Nashville warblers, a Red-eyed vireo, and one or 
more Bullock's oriole seen and heard vocalzing. 


It is interesting that eBird now requires supporting details for Bullock's 
oriole - from the bar chart it is rare in Stevens County after mid-August - so 
next time I will try to get photographic documentation. They are reported here 
in June by other birders, so do Bullock's orioles migrate early and mostly 
leave the area by mid-August?? I would have thought dispersing bullock's oriole 
fledged young and post-breeding adults would still be around instead of being 
so rarely observed.

The bill doesn't look all that odd to me in the photos.  Perhaps a tiny bit
darker than in the 2015 photo, but not meaningfully so.  The legs look to
me like they are molting scales, making the yellow appear dull, not really
different in color.  But what do I know?  I didn't see the bird itself.
But from the photos, I'd just say it is a semi-palmated plover, not all
that different from any other, just showing some conditional slight
variation.

The bird in question looks like a juvenile Semipalmated Plover. Very common for 
Mann Lake this time of year and most of my field guides show dark legs and bill 
in juveniles. I would not rely on leg color as a key since they are most of the 
time covered by mud and the true color is not observed.

Keith,

Interesting. I wonder if this might not be a juvenile going through 
development? It’s my understanding that their juvs show a lot a variation in 
length of time for full plumage development: some taking two years. Could that 
also result in greater variation through the development period of bill and leg 
color?

Date: Sun, 14 Aug 2016 20:08:32 -0700
I birded mostly in Nez Perce and Clearwater Counties today starting at Mann
Lake (east of Lewiston), which produced small numbers but nice variety of
shorebirds including:
Killdeer 12
STILT SANDPIPER 2
BAIRD'S SANDPIPER 1
Least Sandpiper 1
Western Sandpiper 3
Long-billed Dowitcher 1
Red-necked Phalarope 3
Spotted Sandpiper 3
Greater Yellowlegs 1
Lesser Yellowlegs 2

Landbird migrants including 3 American White Pelicans, a PEREGRINE FALCON,
Eastern Kingbirds, Yellow-rumped Warbler, and a VESPER SPARROW rounded out
the 44 species seen at Mann Lake.  Full list on eBird:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S31089800.

I drove Lower Fords Creek Road from Orofino to Weippe, following up on some
good birds Charles Swift found on a recent float.  The area produced new
Clearwater County birds for me like a Yellow-breasted Chat, a Rock Wren,
Bewick's Wren, and RED-EYED VIREO (the later 2 at nearby Tunnel Pond).
Deyo Reservoir, west of Weippe, was pretty quiet except for a LEAST
SANDPIPER.  Deer Creek Reservoir, south of Headquarters, had 3 RED-NECKED
PHALAROPES.  On the way home to Moscow, I drove up Little Bear Ridge Road,
north of Kendrick in Latah County, and had 2 Lesser Yelllowlegs at a farm
pond.

Good Birding,

The settling ponds at Mann Lake were birdy today. I found a black necked
stilt, marbled godwit, greater and lesser yellowlegs and a solitary
sandpiper all in the first pond.

There was another godwit on the mud below the airfield along with two
western sandpipers.

Hello,

For whatever reason, I have never really birded the higher elevations of Bonner 
County. So today, with Lightning Creek closed, I birded the upper reaches of 
Trestle Creek to Lunch Peak (6,400’). It was a beautiful day and I had some 
nice birds. 2 Dusky Grouse, 3 White winged Crossbills, (singing), Evening 
Grosbeaks, Hermit Thrushes, numerous Olive-sided Flycatchers, Fox Sparrow, 
Wilson’s, Townsend’s, MacGillivray’s, Yellow pumped, and Orange crowned 
Warblers. 


Also, there was juvenile Bonaparte’s Gull on the beach in Sandpoint.

Hello,

This morning, I found some nice shorebirds at Eloika Lake in north Spokane 
County. The best bird was an alternate plumaged BLACK BELLIED PLOVER. Also 
found was a Semipalmated Plover, a Least Sandpiper. Long-billed Dowitcher, 
Solitary Sandpiper and numerous Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers. A scope is

While walking in the park this morning I was delighted to see the two
Cooper's hawk chicks that had recently fledged. They were together playing
in the sprinklers, hopping around in that weird gate that raptors have and
chasing each other through the trees. It was good to see that they are both
alive and well and learning the skills they will need to survive into
adulthood.

Hello,

Early this morning before the heat set in I set out for northern Pend Oreille 
County. 


At the mouth of Harvey Creek, there was a female HARLEQUIN DUCK with four 
babies. They swam right under the bridge, allowing good looks and nice pics. 
Also in the area was a large flock of Pine Siskins and a Red Crossbill, and a 
female Wilson’s Warbler even picking in the gravel with the flock. 


From Sullivan Lake, I traveled up Harvey Creek Rd to Bunchgrass Meadows. By 
far, the birds I most enjoyed were at least four singing male WHITE WINGED 
CROSSBILLS. I saw at least 10 and there could have been more. Most of them were 
found near the camp spot at Bunchgrass Meadows. Also seen were many Olive-sided 
Flycatchers, one Lincoln’s Sparrow, six BOREAL CHICKADEES and one male 
AMERICAN THREE TOED WOODPECKER. There was a good number of Red Crossbills and a 
few Evening Grosbeaks. 


Back along the Pend Oreille River and the Kalispell Indian Reservation there 
were many White Pelicans. The shorelines look good for shorebirds, but there 
were none – zero. Hope that changes.

Hello,

This morning I found a few shorebirds along the pond on Westmoreland Rd (just 
north of Bear Lake) along Hwy 2, about .5 west of Hwy 2). Killdeer, Spotted 
Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs (2), Solitary Sandpiper (2), Wilson’s Snipe (2), 
Least Sandpiper (1). This little pond has been productive in the past. The 
thing is, it doesn’t stay good very long. In the coming warm days, it will 
dry out quickly. 


There was a White Pelican on Eloika Lake.

This morning I visited the Hell's Gate Cooper's and found the nest empty.
Apparently, the chicks had fledged between yesterday and today. I was able
to locate the smaller chick and it was moving about the tree. It actually
seemed curious about me and the dog as I walked around the tree looking to
locate the other chick because it flew to whatever side I was on. After 30
- 40 minutes of searching I couldn't locate the other chick, nor could I
find the parents in the nearby trees.

Two nights ago I had the first common nighthawks cruising my neighborhood
and as usual I tried to make myself crazy and dizzy trying to catch a
photo. I got a few, but finally gave up and watched the show as the sun set
and painted them with an orange glow.

Subject: Kestrels
From: Rich Del Carlo <rich AT peregrinetree.com>
Date: Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:16:02 -0700
I have had a pair of kestrels nesting in dead birch trees near my property for 
several years. They typically fledge 2-3 young. This year they got a late start 
and couldn't find a suitable nest site, or that's what I thought! I saw them 
checking out nest boxes I had put up for flickers, but they seemed 
disinterested. 

It turns out that 2 pairs actually nested in 2 boxes that are about 400' apart! 
One box is in a cottonwood about 30' up and the other is on a birch about 10' 
up. I did not know those boxes were even occupied until I heard begging from 
inside the box and saw a chick poking its head out of the hole. The first chick 
fledged about 5 days ago and now there are 3 fledglings flying around in the 
trees near the nest (2 females and 1 male) being tended by adults. This morning 
at the other box a male fledged. At first it was on the ground below the box 
crying loudly and being fed by both adults. I thought maybe it jumped too soon, 
but a couple of hours later it was begging from about 30' up in a spruce tree! 

Early on in the season the male was bring mice to their perch, but I have only 
seen grasshoppers and dragonflies being fed to the babies. There must be a lot 
of food around here and it feels good to have the population locally swell from 
within 200' feet of my house! It's pretty noisy with kestrels talking and 
begging and robins and swallows freaking out every few minutes and as these 
birds disperse in the next week or so I will miss them! It is amazing with all 
of the kestrel activity there has been no interaction or conflict between the 2 
pairs. 

I also have a "Western " Flycatcher nesting within a couple of feet of my front 
door. 

What a great time of the year!

Here’s an unusual request for someone with the skill to imitate some of the 
sounds we all listen to while searching out birds: 


The other day I was contacted by Eckart Preu, the conductor and music director 
of the Spokane Symphony. He asked me if I knew of anyone who is adept at making 
bird calls and sounds. He would like to have someone onstage (instead of using 
a recording) on opening night to make bird sounds. 

 
Here’s what he asked, “I'm looking for someone who can imitate bird sounds 
on stage - potentially replacing the prerecorded sounds of Respighi's Pines of 
Rome for Opening night. A recording of the original sounds (in reality it's 
shorter than this recording) can be found here: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NLEwbr-1x0 
” 

 
If you know of someone local who could do this, please let me know as soon as 
possible. If you don’t know anyone, please let me know.

Cooper's Hawk is on a pretty similar breeding timeline as the other
regional breeders being reported.

The Hell's Gate chicks are growing rapidly. I was surprised to see one of
them standing on the edge of the nest this morning with the tree rocking
and swaying in a strong breeze. I was surprised that they have fairly
developed wing and tail feathers. Even some of the breast feathers are
coming in. I still have not been able to discern for sure how many chicks
there are. Two for sure, but I think there's a third. The one looks quite
large, possibly a female?

From: Richard Baltierra <wolfbaltierra AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:56:59 -0700
I finished up my job with the Intermountain Bird Observatory last week, and
this morning I decided to bird Kamiak. It was a fantastic morning, after
about 4 hours of hiking around the butte, I was able to tally up 52
species! Highlights include:
All 3 Nuthatches
Singing Brown Creepers
Mountain + BC Chickadees
6 species of warblers (Yellow Rumped, Orange Crowned, Macgillivray's,
Nashville, Yellow, and Townsend's)
Red Crossbills
OLIVE SIDED FLYCATCHER near the summit
Dark Eyed Junco NEST found on a grassy hillside near the trail (pic on
eBird)
A really great morning! Ebird list:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S30671444

I would also like to share some highlights from my bird survey work. I
spent half of it in the Nez Perce, Clearwater forests, and the other half
in all the southern forests(Payette, Boise, Salmon-Challis, and Sawtooths).
I had MOUNTAIN QUAIL at several surveys, mostly near White Bird, ID, but
also in Adams County west of Mccall (unusual local, but habitat was right).
In the Hells Canyon Rec. Area I had a stray NORTHERN BOBWHITE calling from
a canyon near a road. Most likely an illegally released bird. I had every
regularly occurring woodpecker at least once, including White Headed (near
Lucile, ID), Black Backed, and American Three Toed. I had a close encounter
with an adult GREAT GRAY OWL on a survey east of Cascade, ID almost to Warm
Springs, ID.  Lastly in the mammalian department I heard wolves on 2
different occasions, once in the Clearwater near Wieppe, and once in the
Nez Perce east of Riggins. It has been a really fun summer so far!

I guess it must be that time of year, but holy cow I've had a lot of
hummers today! It was like someone flipped a switch because I've seen very
few up until today and those had been males. Today females/juveniles
started to show up. At one point I happened to be in the yard with the
camera and a female black-chinned came in to the feeder. Then a male showed
up and the real action started. Apparently, it was a late season display
going on as he zipped back and forth in front of her so fast I had no idea
where to point the camera. Eventually, they moved further out in the yard
and did a spiraling dance. I just pointed the camera in the general
direction and pressed the button. Amazingly I got a few photos of the
display that weren't too fuzzy. The series starts here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/ctemple/27658162194/in/dateposted-public/

​Needless to say I was just a wee bit excited after all that!

I counted at least 7 individual birds today including one that looked very
much like the female rufous I watched nesting. Couldn't get a photo of her
to confirm, but I'm not that far from the park where she nested so it's
possible. I'd like to fantasize it was anyway.

Great birding day! ​

Arrived in time to see the end of a feeding session with mama. It appears
there may be as many as three chicks. No photos unless fuzzy bird butts are
your thing. One chick looks fairly large as is usual I think. The other one
or two seem to stay tucked into the nest at this point making it hard to
determine exactly how many there are, but time will tell us for sure as
they grow.

It was a great thrill for my husband to see them this morning. Though he is
not really a bird watcher, he does love the raptors. He was watching
through the binos when mama launched off the nest heading right for us and
swooped low over our heads before landing in a tree behind us. Watching a
fierce looking raptor grow large in those optics as she's coming at you
tends to get ones blood pumping! I smiled knowingly at his excited
reaction.  I may make a birder out of him yet!

Thanks everyone for playing along on this little identification game. I am
getting mixed comments, but so far Cassin's is winning. A couple of reasons
have been pointed out for Cassin's are the white eye ring and straighter
bill. None of my bird books mention the eye ring though every one of them
shows it in the photo or illustration. Sites on line mention it though. My
personal experience with Cassin's has never been with birds this pink,
hence the thought that perhaps this was a purple finch. These were quite
striking. Perhaps another visit to my friends cabin is in order for further
research!

I spent part of the day in the mountains above Waha, Id. between there and
Soldier's Meadows visiting a friends cabin. While there I snapped a few
photos of the birds coming to her feeders and at the time thought these
were Cassin's finch. Now looking at them here at home I'm not so sure. They
were very rosy red and I didn't notice any streaking on their sides. Nor
does the auricular area and malar stripe seem as brown as I've seen in
Cassin's. Could they be Purple finch or just really bright Cassin's?

I took my morning walk at Mann Lake today and was pleasantly surprised at
the number of species I saw in about an hour just walking the dog. I
counted at least 20 species. Blackbirds were numerous and included
red-winged, brewer's and yellow-headed. Both greater and lesser yellowlegs
were present and a group of dowitchers along with killdeer and spotted
sandpiper. Waterfowl was sparse with mallard and a few blue winged teal and
about a half dozen geese, but since most of the geese around here are still
flightless I wouldn't expect more. There was also a family of coots. That's
the first time I've seen their chicks....not exactly the cutest babies! A
shoreline is starting to emerge just in time for the Canyon Birders
Saturday field trips there to start.

On my way home I checked the Cooper's hawk nest at Hell's Gate and was able
to verify two chicks, but there still may be more. While I was there an
adult, I assume mom, came back and forth a few times with sticks.
Apparently, she thought the place needed a little work. Then an adult
showed up in a stand of trees across from the nest with breakfast, but did
not take it to the nest. I have no idea if this was mom or dad as no adult
was present in the nest at the time. It did not take the food to the nest,
but flew off briefly and returned empty footed. Do Coop's cache food?
Whichever bird it was it is starting to molt into adult plumage. Photos on
my flickr site.

​I also briefly checked Swallows Park for the hummers, but was not able to
locate them. Guess I'd better get used to the idea I've seen the last of
them.​

Fun morning!​

Subject: Canyon & Rock Wrens-Kootenai Co., ID
From: Doug Ward <dougward AT frontier.com>
Date: Tue, 5 Jul 2016 10:12:20 -0700
I decided to hike up the hill yesterday (4 Jul'16) while out at our place
near Bayview, Idaho (Kootenai Co.) to bird the burn area from last year's
fire  - hoping for a woodpecker invasion, but not yet.  I was also curious
to see if the CANYON WREN I'd found earlier this spring was still around,
and sure enough, he was.  Curiously it was feeding on the burnt trees like a
creeper or nuthatch which was interesting in and of itself, but then I
noticed three (3) large fledgling wrens in the rocks nearby and thought they
must be "his".  Problem was, they looked more like Rock Wrens than Canyons.
Being unfamiliar with Canyon Wren juveniles, I watched the youngsters for
15-20 minutes waiting for mama or papa to show up to feed them and maybe
confirm breeding.  Well I finally noticed mama come in to feed the kids and
she was clearly an adult ROCK WREN!  So now I was really intrigued - were
these guys a couple and their kids hybrids?  I watched the family for
another half hour or so and never noticed the Canyon Wren participate in the
domestic duties (could still be the dad) though watched mama Rock Wren feed
the crew a couple more times.  After getting back home I read up a bit on
juvenile Canyon & Rock Wrens and believe they probably weren't hybrids after
all, but likely "just" Rock Wrens for a Kootenai Co. first breeding record
(Shirley?)!

 

Both of these wrens are likely repeatable, along with a ton of House Wrens,
so let me know separately if you'd like specific directions and/or tips on
finding them.  Generally the spot is above Cape Horn Road (north side of
Scenic Bay) east of Bayview and just east of the "Slide".  Both were
actively feeding around the large rocks below the cliff.  The Canyon Wren
only sang once, but was calling a fair amount as were the Rock Wrens so you
might hear them first.  Again, let me know if you'd like more specific
details.

 

Happy Fourth,

Doug

The Cooper's nest I've been monitoring at Hell's Gate State Park had a

far and much larger than I thought it would be. I put a rather poor photo

first year couple were successful. Mom is still sporting sub-adult plumage.

Date: Sat, 2 Jul 2016 17:37:09 -0700
Sometime between 2 p.m. Friday afternoon and 7 a.m. today the little hummer
I've been watching left the nest! I was not present for that happy event,
but I am happy to report that he/she made it out of the nest successfully
and was happily exercising it's tiny wings high up in the sycamore it was
born in. I am feeling mixed emotions here.
I am thrilled and blessed to have been able to watch this process unfold
the last couple of months, but I am a little sad, too. I have to admit that
when I first arrived this morning and saw the empty nest my heart sank. I
so wanted to see it make that leap from the nest and had hoped it wouldn't
land in the water beneath. I quickly scanned the shoreline for signs of it
and finding nothing in the water started searching the trees and shrubs
nearby. Eventually, I found mama and after a bit I saw the little one high
up above me. It was sitting on a branch pumping it's tiny wings, preening
and begging for food. It seemed so excited to be up so high. I was excited
then, too.

I will keep watching for a few more days, but know it won't be long before
they both move on. In the meantime there's a few more photos on my flickr
site.

Hey all!

I am hiking with my son and nephew tomorrow near Stevens Pass. My inclination 
was to go from The Smithbrook Trailhead to Stevens Pass, but I lost a second 
car for the trip today. Wondering if there are any folks out there interested 
in doing the through hike from the other direction (just under 10 miles) and 
doing a key swap, or if there is simply someone who lives reasonably close who 
might be free to shuttle is the 7 miles back to the car (will pay for gas!). 


I've had the absolute best experiences on here when asking strangers if I can 
get in their cars, so I'll keep my fingers crossed but am ready to do an out 
and back if necessary :D 


(Thought this was sent earlier, but it doesn't seem to have gone through!)

Happy birding!

The Cooper's nest at Hell's Gate also had some activity this a.m. Mama was

eggs may have hatched. Off in the trees I could hear another Coop calling
so I think the male was nearby, I just couldn't locate him.

The baby rufous I've been watching is just about ready to fledge. I spent
nearly two hours this morning watching and taking lots of photos. Mama was
sticking very close and even flew in a few times and appeared to poke the
nestling. After feeding, the baby would get very active and I thought for
sure I would see it leave the nest. It got some very vigorous wing flapping
in and then would sit on the edge of the nest and teeter back and forth
while it tried to arrange it's feathers. Eventually, it climbed back in and
took a nap. When I checked at 2 p.m. it was still there, but I suspect it
won't be for much longer.
If you all can stand looking at more hummer photos I posted about eight
from this mornings visit starting with mom checking me out. Just be glad I
didn't post the 60 or so I took!

Sorry for the late post. Yesterday afternoon driving by the Pullman Dairy Queen 
I noticed a large Buteo on the DQ lawn. The bird had extensive feathering down 
both legs. I did not have time to stop and get a good look at the bird so I 
cannot say for sure but it may have been a Ferruginous Hawk (not sure what else 
it may have been). Kind of unusual for Pullman.

I know I may be obsessed with this little hummer, but it's so darn cute and
I know in probably a few days it will be out of the nest and gone forever
so I am attempting to observe, photograph and learn as much as I can in
such a short time.

The baby is changing daily! This morning it was quite active, moving all
around the nest, stretching, scratching and preening. I'm guessing new
feathers growing might be a little itchy. Actual flight feathers can be
seen on the wing.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ctemple/27941975345/in/dateposted-public/

I'm hoping and praying I get to see this little one leave the nest, but
timing is everything on that. We'll soon see I think!

Four of us did a 6 hour tour of the area on Friday, June 24.  Marginal
weather.  We found approx.. 50 species.  Light wind, light rain, high temp
of 58 F.  Because of the weather, we didn't get into the conifer forest much
and so missed some common species.

 

Attending were Norma Trefry, Vicki Green,  Barb Bateman and John Stuart.

The rufous hummingbird youngster is growing fast! It's much further along
than I thought it would be. There appears to be only one and at the rate
it's growing it may be out of the nest by next week. Too soon for me as I
really am enjoying watching this little story unfold.

From: Catherine Temple <ctemple99 AT gmail.com>

Yikes! I go away for a few days and return to find a small beak poking out
of the nest of the rufous hummer! It looks much bigger than I thought so
perhaps it was born some time ago and mama didn't indicate there was a babe
in the nest. I could only see one beak so don't know if there is another
baby in there. Mama was flitting about the area, but I couldn't catch her
coming in to feed and didn't want to disturb her too much. Can't wait for
it or them to be large enough to be visible and as I understand it that
won't take long. Exciting times!!!!

Just got back from a weekend in New Meadows, Idaho. If you ever want a
great place to see Wilson's snipe go there this time of year. The little
buggers were everywhere! I've never seen so many at a time! Seems there was
one every few posts along the backroad meadows, just out there begging for
their photos to be taken.

Subject: nest watching
From: Catherine Temple <ctemple99 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:39:42 -0700
Just a quick update on a few of the nests I watch as I do my walks every
day.
The young pair of Cooper's hawks (or at least the female) is still sitting
on her nest at Hell's Gate State Park. I thought perhaps she had abandoned
it as I had not seen her for a few days, but the last few days her tail is
visible, but that's all. No activity otherwise that I can tell and haven't
seen the male at all.
The ospreys in the park have young visible in the nest, but just barely.

The rufous hummingbird at Swallows Park is still sitting on her nest.
Amazes me that a hummer can sit still at all! My bird guides say about 15
days before the eggs hatch and she has been there at least that long, but I
don't know when the eggs were laid. She was gone from the nest when I
arrived this a.m. but returned and appeared to be poking around in the nest
so perhaps the eggs have hatched. She then settled back on it. I would
dearly love to be able to see into the nest, but placement prohibits that
so for now I'll just have to settle for watching from afar.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ctemple/27106627133/in/dateposted-public/

I now have another nest to watch and I don't even have to leave home. A
robin has decided my one and only tree looked like a good spot to build her
nest. It always makes me excited when somebody decides to nest here as it
gives me a chance to really study the process. This is only the third bird
in nearly 20 years that I've had nest here. Previously, there was a pair of
mourning doves and last year a lesser goldfinch.

Yesterday there was a Black Tern at Savage Rd. pond in the afternoon.   I
watched it sit on the muddy bank for awhile then forage very actively.   It
is a species not often seen in Asotin Co.    Also present were
Yellow-headed Blackbirds and a Wilson's Phalarope.

The Black Throated Blue Warbler was easily seen today at about 3:30. My 
girlfriend and I had excellent views, and we are both very thankful for the 
convenient pink tape leading our way to the bird. The road was pretty muddy but 
we were still able to make it up without any issues. An awesome life bird and a 
great way to end my time in Walla Walla!

tenths of a mile (0.3 miles) from the Southwick Rd. junction (so not very
far!).

Hi All,

There was a calling Least Flycatcher a bit east of Kendrick, Latah County,
along the Potlatch R. late this morning. The location was along Cedar Creek
Rd. about .3 miles beyond the Southwick Rd. junction/bridge. It was calling
from a patch of locust trees in an old field on the north side of the road
(probably an old home site). I made recordings which I'll add to eBird when
I have a chance. This is a very birdy stretch of road with Yellow-breasted
Chats, Veeries. Gray Catbirds, etc. (best earlier morning due to traffic).
North of the Kendrick HS along Bear Creek a Red-eyed Vireo was singing
along the creek and Rock Wrens were on the rocky hillside.

Earlier while running the Gifford Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) route I found
a single White-throated Swift foraging over the Clearwater R. by the Nez
Perce tribe fish facility on River Rd. just east of Hubbard Gulch Rd. There
are some basalt outcrops along the river here although I don't how likely
WT Swifts are to be breeding in the immediate area. Hubbard Gulch Rd. is
also good for chats, Veeries, catbirds, etc. and I had another Red-eyed
Vireo singing further east on River Rd. at Bedrock Rd. Finally a
Grasshopper Sparrow was along Lenore Grade near Sunnyside Bench Rd. All
these locations are in Nez Perce County.

thanks, Charles.

Subject: Plovers and Bobolinks and more at Newman Lake, Spokane
From: Terry Little <terry AT crossoverchurch.info>
Date: Thu, 9 Jun 2016 19:56:57 +0000
Hello,

I had a wonderful hour and a half this morning at Newman Lake, on the very 
eastern edge of Spokane County. 

The first highlights were 2 BLACK BELLIED PLOVERS with one AMERICAN GOLDEN 
PLOVER mixed in. These were located along Newman Lake Rd south of the lake 
itself. This is where there is a flooded field west of the road. The plovers 
were about .5 mi out, but easily visible with a scope. There were 3 Black 
bellied in alternate plumage and 3 in basic plumage. The one golden plover was 
in basic plumage. 


The next highlight was relocating BOBOLINKS in the same field where I had them 
last year. This year, there are at least four males. These are located in the 
fields just past the north end of the lake, about 300 - 400 yards west of the 
road, just to the southwest of the large green and gold building. 


The surrounding brushy hillsides were alive with many of the expected 
flycatchers, vireos, warblers, and other summer residents. 67 species in a 
little over an hour. 


A fun morning
Blessings
Terry Little
Mead, Wa

From: Charles Swift <chaetura AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 08 Jun 2016 20:54:48 +0000
Cedar Waxwings are definitely year round in Idaho, at least at lower
elevations and in often in towns, but more common and widespread from
spring to fall. Also like robins, it's possible (perhaps likely) our winter
birds are from farther north breeding populations. We seem to get an influx
of Cedar Waxwings in the fall, then a decline as winter progresses, and
another influx of birds in the spring. The eBird bar charts show this to
some extent -

Idaho - *http://tinyurl.com/gwszy3r *
Washington - *http://tinyurl.com/h2ekmz6 *

Most notable in these bar charts is a population ebb from Feb. to May,
perhaps when many wander further south as fruit crops are depleted.

Charles.
