Hello all,

After starting our day with a NORTHERN PARULA just 1/2 mile south of 
stateline in OR (coming to a hummer feeder) we with friends Jim and Sue 
headed north in search of winter birds. On Sheffler road we found 2 SNOW 
BUNTINGS -#261 for our county yearlist - only 1 more species to tie our 
record!

A few dozen "arctic" Horned Larks were in with the hundreds along the 
road - snow cover always brings them to the road. A Lapland Longspur was 
heard but not seen.

On Smith Springs road six Tree Sparrows were in a weedy area with many 
Wcrowns, Song Sparrows and juncos.

Mike chummed for gulls at Lower Monumental Dam - all the regulars - 
nothing unusual. Above the dam at the gravel pit were over 65 
GRAY-CROWNED ROSY-FINCHES -

Rough-legged Hawks were on every road north of 124 - we had 11 birds - 
two of them beautiful black morph.

Good birding, M&ML

My little hummer is a tough one. It was 27° at my house this morning and
snowing and it was there to greet me at 7 a.m.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/ctemple/31348968711/in/dateposted-public/

​Also I am apparently not the only person in the valley being blessed by a
hummer. I was contacted by another lady in the Clarkston Heights who has
had an adult male Anna's coming since November. It certainly seems like
they are expanding their range and proving they are tough little buggers!​

Hey all! 


I posted about a week ago about the CBC, this post is to give the details on 
when/where to meet, what to bring, etc. The count is on December 17th 
(Saturday), we will plan on meeting at the Branding Iron at 7:00 am (you may 
want to arrive a little earlier if you're interested in eating breakfast there 
before the count) per usual. From there, I will give you your route 
designations and we'll be off for the day! It will likely be a long, cold day, 
so be sure to bring plenty of layers and warm clothes! A lunch is also a great 
idea, as you'll be out in the field all day. After the fun filled day, we will 
all reconvene at Andy and Ellen's house for a lovely potluck dinner. Andy and 
Ellen appreciate any donations of food, and it's the least we can do to reward 
their hospitality! 



Hopefully this sounds of interest to some of you! All of the wonderful route 
leaders from last year have volunteered to lead their routes again this year, 
but a few new faces are always great! If you are interested in participating in 
the count, or have any questions at all, feel free to contact me at either 
magicman32 AT rocketmail.com  or 5093149570. 
Additionally, if you would be interested in going owling let me know and I will 
do my best to get you on a route that will be doing owls early in the morning. 



Thanks, and I hope to see you at the Branding Iron come December 17th!

I, too, went looking for the Harris Sparrow in Swallow's Park yesterday 
like Carl and I saw what I initially thought was an yellow warbler but 
disregarded that idea because of the implausibility of it and decided 
that it had to be a very yellow orange-crowned warbler with noticeable 
streaking on its breast. When I saw it, it is was feeding in a tree with 
kinglets. I think that we saw the same bird. Unfortunately I did not get 
a picture of it before it left.

Did you see streaking on its breast?

Date: Sun, 4 Dec 2016 11:27:10 -0800
Yesterday I reported a late Orange-crowed Warbler at Swallows Park in
Clarkston.  After posting, I took another look through my photos and
circled back around to my original conclusion, that the bird was instead a
YELLOW WARBLER.  The viewing conditions in the field were very poor, and I
convinced myself it had to be an Orange-crowned given that a December
Yellow seemed implausible (eBird shows no previous December-February Yellow
Warblers for Washingtong, Oregon, Idaho. Montana, Wyoming or Nevada,
through there are 2 for Vancouver Island and many throughout California).
Photos, notes, and justification of the ID are on eBird:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32836475.  Sorry about the confusion.

Good Birding,

Subject: Anna's continues
From: Catherine Temple <ctemple99 AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 2 Dec 2016 16:29:48 -0800
The little Anna's has been visiting my feeder now for twelve days. With the
help of some hummingbird banders, Ned and Gigi Batchelder, we are trying to
determine whether it is male or female by the amount of white in the tail
feathers. Females generally have all white tips, young males have a sliver
of black into the white. This bird has a little of both so still
undetermined, but fun to study. If it sticks around I will be watching to
see if it starts any molt to indicate the sex either way.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/ctemple/30573733703/in/dateposted-public/

Also, I've had a very dark mourning dove at my feeders lately. It has
almost a cinnamon or "burnt" look to the feathers especially on the head
and breast. The other doves don't like it much and try to drive it off.

Hello all,

While birding Ice Harbor Dam area yesterday afternoon we were treated to 
a 40 minute flyover of many thousands of Snow Geese - they were flying 
southwest toward McNary NWR - and they covered the sky! Around 400 a 
minute - we figure at least 12,000 birds. In the lead group were two 
"Blue Geese"

Below the dam were many birds including 103 White Pelicans, 26 Barrow's 
Goldeneye, 60 Common Mergansers, 2 Red-breasted Mergansers, 1 Mew Gull 
in with hundreds of gulls that came in to Mike's chumming. Two Northern 
Shrike were chasing each other on the island.

Above the dam were over 200 Western Grebes with one Red-necked Grebe -

Good birding, ML

Subject: large mixed flock
From: Nancy Miller <nmiller AT moscow.com>
Date: Sat, 3 Dec 2016 18:05:22 -0800
I was driving home from Moscow about 1 o'clock along the road north of
Moscow along Canterwood subdivision. A very large mixed flock of larger
birds was headed north and then circled and some headed back towards UI.
Possibly they were coming from and headed back to the dairy ponds but had
gotten spooked. I couldn't stop long and was too far away (they were flying
over the ridge to the west). There were ducks, geese, corvids, and 4 or 5
swans. Probably 300 birds or so. 

 

We haven't been to the ponds lately so I'm not sure what is hanging out
there these days. I should have at least tried a phone photo to check the
shapes and count but was driving and surprised at the size and diversity of
the flock.

From: Tim O'Brien <kertim7179 AT yahoo.com>
Date: Fri, 2 Dec 2016 02:04:26 +0000 (UTC)
Hello birders,

I haven't done much birding lately so with a new month and winter in the 
air...it is time! 


I walked the paved path on the west side of Medical Lake around noon today. 
Temperature was about 32 degrees F and a bit of snow left on the ground. The 
lake is 100% open water right now, but with the incoming arctic air that may 
not last long. 


Waterfowl were plenty with Canada Geese arriving onto the lake from somewhere 
else during the whole walk. Mallard, American Wigeon, Common Goldeneye, Common 
Merganser, and Hooded Merganser were present as well. Two Western Grebes were 
on the south end of the lake. 


A lone adult Bald Eagle flew over near the south end of the lake - heading 
west. Not much passerine activity until I got near the ball fields. There are 
several fruit-bearing trees just north of the fields that were attracting 
American Robins, Cedar Waxwings, and at least three Townsend's Solitaires - 
that were calling back and forth. I'm sure there may be a Varied Thrush hiding 
in there somewhere...but I didn't look long as I had my dog in tow. 


Then on the way back to the car near the north parking area - Golden-crowned 
Kinglet, White-breasted Nuthatch, Pygmy Nuthatch, and a Brown Creeper. 


Before walking by the lake, I drove out on the West Plains around the 
MacFarlane and Ladd Road area. Several Red-tailed Hawks and one Northern Shrike 
were seen. The shrike was after a little bird in a tree, so I watched the chase 
for awhile, but couldn't get a good look at the fleeing bird to ID it.

I birded the Lewis-Clark Valley for longer than I was supposed to today.
At Swallows Park, I was unable to relocate the Harris's Sparrow, but there
was a late ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER along the river.  Poor photos are on
eBird:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32836475

Along the Snake River at Asotin, the SWAMP SPARROW (found last week by
Craig Johnson) was relatively easy to relocate, but quite hard to see well,
at the north end of the pond just north of the water treatment plant.  A
Marsh Wren was nearby, a small flock of BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS flew over, and a
Pacific Wren was directly behind the water treatment plant.

On the Idaho side of the river, Hell's Gate SP was hopping with ~50
Yellow-rumped Warblers, a couple hundred Robins, up to 100 BOHEMIAN
WAXWINGS, 150-200 Dark-eyed Juncos, and a surprise late CHIPPING SPARROW
which flew off before I could get a photo.  Mann Lake was very quiet in
mid-afternoon.

Good Birding,

While walking the dog this a.m. at Swallows Park I found a juvenile

the blackberry bushes along the water by the north end of the old swimming
beach. There's also a very illusive Tundra swan hiding in the weeds along
the island.

Hello all,

After reading reports of many waxwings south of us in OR - Mike and I 
drove up Mill Creek/Blue Creek this morning and found VERY few birds. 
Then at noon when Mike was out raking leaves in our yard he had 10 
Bohemian Waxwings fly over - county yearbird #260 - yes these are the 
FIRST Bohemian Waxwings reported in Walla Walla county this year.

There have been many SNOW GEESE out along the Columbia and Snake River 
in WWCo. - over 2000 birds along Dodd road Friday and another flock up 
near Fishook Park. A few Greater White-fronted Geese in the flocks as well.

Good Birding, M&ML

Subject: Hummer and waxwings
From: Catherine Temple <ctemple99 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2016 10:49:36 -0800
After being gone for four days I returned to find the Anna's hummer still
hanging around. Yay!
Also found a flock of about 150 waxwings feeding on the mountain ash at
Hell's Gate SP about an hour ago. There were several Bohemian waxwing along
with the cedars all swirling from tree to tree. Lots of robins, too.

From: Charles Swift <chaetura AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2016 01:58:04 +0000
Hi All,

There was a large number of fruit-eaters at the Arboretum this morning
including a large flock of 400 or so waxwings (probably more). More than
half (~250) were Cedar Waxwings but there was a solid 150 or so Bohemians
as well. There were also at least 150 each of American Robins and European
Starlings. BTW the Bohemian Waxwings appear to be in good number for this
early and are already in southwest Idaho and other points south indicating
a possibly irruption year (noted also by an Oregon birder in the past few
days).

At the UI Dairy the large Canada Goose flock (500 or so) included the
continuing immature Snow Goose and some 10-20 Cackling Geese. There were
the 8 continuing small dark (presumed *minima*) Cackling Geese plus a
couple more larger paler ones and some 10 others in fly-by flock. I also
flushed a Wilson's Snipe from the wet grassy area behind the dairy (there
were ~7 here in the last week or so).

Later in the morning a Bald Eagle flew over the Palouse Mall and a
Yellow-rumped Warbler flew over my yard later in the afternoon.

thanks, Charles.

Didn't see the Anna's today, but will stay hopeful and keep watching.
However, plenty of other activity in the back yard. The Coop's and sharpies
are loving my backyard this year and I'm enjoying the show. Watched this
young Coop blast into the yard scattering tweeties everywhere. Such
determination! It came away empty taloned this time. Probably a good thing
the Anna's wasn't present for this hunter!

From: Matt Bartels <mattxyz AT earthlink.net>
Date: Mon, 21 Nov 2016 20:41:09 -0800
Hi all -
A couple more cents on this -
For the WA lists, I think a lot of compilers definitely are relying heavily on 
eBird data as a big part of their info - but as Shirley & others have said, a 
lot of birding goes on outside of eBird - compilers focused on a small region 
like a county can cultivate sources and watch for notice when things are found 
that may not make it to eBird. 


The big compiled list w/ all the counties is often only one piece of the 
output - several county compilers post more detailed breakdowns of sighting 
info on local sites  whereas a combined list only includes the ticks those 
local sites can often provide deeper info. 


When those are compiled , it is possible as well to see a few bigger picture 
things that cant be found on eBird  try asking of eBird how many counties 
has species X been seen in this year? - or how many species have been seen in 
every county of the state this year? - you can get somewhat similar info by 
gazing at an eBird map, but it isnt always easy to parse out some of those 
things. 


As for whether theres a competitive aspect to it - one of the big draws to 
me when I copied Idaho and began the WA version was specifically to do 
something non-competitive. With these lists, theres at least the potential to 
think in terms of community instead of individual, building a list together 
instead of working on a solo list. I say this as a die-hard county lister - 
this is just something different and valuable precisely for its 
non-competitiveness. 


Finally, I dont know whether the county compilation adds much to this issue, 
but I do think theres potential to use things like group county listing to 
overcome one of the biggest downsides of the eBird era: I love eBird and 
believe it has provided an invaluable resource for birders and maybe later for 
scientists. But I think that has come at some cost - the loss of some of the 
community aspect of birding. I think discussions on list-servs are missing one 
big part of the conversation that they used to have  now, because so many 
people report their trips via eBird, you have many fewer day trip reports via 
email  it is easy to track & chase individual birds using eBird data, but it 
is not the same as learning how someone else planned and executed a day of 
birding. [try following someone through a day of traveling birding via eBird - 
it is tough!]  I think the birding community could really use more efforts to 
talk more in a conversational way and not reduce everything to reporting 
narrative-free lists of birds on eBird. Whether or not county year lists help 
encourage more story-telling and conversing, Im not sure - but it does seem to 
have some potential to counter some of the data only trend of eBird-era 
birding.

reported this year from Canyon County. The query also shows the date the

see the complete checklist and more detailed information as to the location and

Subject: UI Arboretum Nashville Warbler, 11/21/16
From: Charles Swift <chaetura AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 22 Nov 2016 00:49:45 +0000
Hi All,

I had a Nashville Warbler in the UI Arboretum this afternoon, unusually
late for sure but it couldn't have been anything else (there is the
possibility that late Nashville Warblers in the west are of the "eastern"
form but they are essentially indistinguishable). It was along the
east-side main (gravel) road near the upper pond where it intersects with
several side paths. Last I saw it was near the shrub rose collection on
east side of the road, mostly foraging fairly low in shrubs etc. It was
giving high pitched call notes fairly regularly (Sibley describes them as
"spink") of which I recorded a few but I was unable to get a photo. It
looks like it will be more/less dry tomorrow so if anybody is at the
Arboretum please keep your eyes open for it, there is a decent chance it
may still be around.

There has also been a Northern Goshawk lurking around the Arboretum since
at least late last week, seen be several folks, and a Barred Owl has been
around for several weeks now (but I saw neither this afternoon).

thanks, Charles.

 Just had an Anna's hummingbird in my yard. Just happened to be looking out
the window when it flew up to the window, looked in at me and flew off. It
had a bit of red on the throat so I'm fairly sure it was an Anna's. The
feeder is still up, but it didn't stop to feed, though maybe (fingers

Dear inland-nw-birders,

Sorry I have been unable to keep up with a year list for Nez Perce county.
If someone wants to take over the Nez Perce county year list please contact
Lew Ulrey. Otherwise I suggest you report bird sightings to eBird and at
least a partial year list will be compiled automatically.

Also, as someone who uses eBird quite often to plan my birding adventures I
greatly appreciate those who submit even incidental sightings of rare
birds. I'm am subscribed to recieve rare bird alerts for various counties
in both Washington and Idaho. If I decide to go look for a rare bird I
often will enter a complete list of the birds I see whether or not I see
the rare bird I'm looking for. Any incidental report of a rare bird in
eBird can lead to valuable info being added in this way by myself and
others. Listserv continues to be a valuable resource as well but not
everyone follows it (especially those traveling from outside the area).

Thanks and good birding!

Yes, I generally only report surveys or dedicated birding trips to eBird. A 
casual observation of an uncommon or rare bird I usually report only on the 
county list or the listserv because incidental reports are not as valuable to 
eBird.

 Hi Tweeters & Inland NW Birders -   We've got the latest updated version of 
the 2016 County Year List Project up online at Washington Birder. Almost all 
counties have reported in with totals through the end of October. As ever, 
County Compilers, especially for the under-birded counties, would appreciate 
receiving reports of any birds seen in their counties not yet noted on this 
spreadsheet.    The state year total is  388, three fewer than last year at 
this point, when we had 391. The 2014 total was 390 at this point, 2013 was 
394, and in 2012 we has 396.   Eastern WA has reported 319 species, identical 
to last year at this point  [vs 320 in 2014 and 2012, 321 in 2013] Western WA 
has reported 357 species, down eight from last year’s 365 [vs 359 in 2014, 
 2013’s 360, and 365 in  2012]   20 counties have higher totals than at 
this point last year, with 18 bringing in lower totals. 30 counties are within 
ten species of their total from last year.   28 counties have tallied over 200 
species for the year, and 37 have reported over 175.   71 species have been 
reported  in all 39 counties this year, 122 have been found in all 19 western 
WA counties and 89 have been found in all 20 eastern WA counties.   If you'd 
like to take a look at where things stand, the list and many other interesting 
files are at the Washington Birder website:

 Hi Inland Birders, I am the compiler for Clark and Skamania County in 
Washington State and the information that I use in those county's checklists 
comes from daily readings of the postings on TWEETERS, OBOL, Portland Area 
Birds and your group, as sometimes people visiting those two counties post trip 
reports on their local message site. Along with this I regularly check eBird 
for any new additions, easy to do in Explore Data by setting the county page to 
"Current Year" and "First Seen". I also get emailed reports from local and 
visiting birders. Since this project started in 2007, there hasn't been a year 
where our county lists didn't give you an entirely different idea of when birds 
were first seen than what you would get by checking eBird and of course many 
species are seen by people who never report on eBird . The spreadsheet that 
Matt Bartels developed gives you a lot of information on distribution of 
species too. He also has a State Checklist on the Washington Birder site for 
use as a personal checklist that has a column for all 39 counties and compiles 
your sightings by county and by many other attributes. Wilson Cady

True but eBird doesn't often have the first report of the species for the year 
or even all the bird species reported. For my county, many of the birds I have 
on my list were never reported on eBird or were reported there much later in 
the month. Also seeing it on a spread sheet like we have on idahobirds.net is 
easier to compare than looking up one county at a time. Shirley

359 in 2014, 2013’s 360, and 365 in 2012] 

 
20 counties have higher totals than at this point last year, with 18 bringing 
in lower totals. 

30 counties are within ten species of their total from last year.
 
28 counties have tallied over 200 species for the year, and 37 have reported 
over 175. 

 
71 species have been reported in all 39 counties this year, 122 have been found 
in all 19 western WA counties and 89 have been found in all 20 eastern WA 
counties. 

 
If you'd like to take a look at where things stand, the list and many other

From: Charles Swift <chaetura AT gmail.com>

Hi All,

A Red Phalarope was reported to eBird on 11/17 from the Sandpoint City
Beach by Eric Rasmussen (and was also on the eBird Idaho Rare Bird Alert).
The checklist along with recognizable photos are here -
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32599082. There are 15 prior records
for Idaho, about half of which have been reviewed by the IBRC. Probably not
chaseable at this point but likely of general interest.

thanks, Charles.

Subject: Pacific Loon at Bateman Island, Richland, yet
From: Ivar Husa <ivar AT pocketinet.com>
Date: Thu, 17 Nov 2016 08:07:26 -0800
I observed and photographed a lovely Pacific Loon, at quite a close distance
(at times about 50 feet) from along the causeway at Bateman Island, in
Richland, WA last Sunday and also this morning!

Such a cagey bird, too, spending extensive time underwater. At one point,
with a real commanding view of the water in front of me, I was convinced
that the bird had committed suicide by drowning, I had watched the water so
long...

I lingered as wisps of fog crept across the water and a flock of Cackling
Geese approached. After a solid 10 minutes of not seeing a ripple on the
water, the bird surfaced directly in front of me.  I was prepared and got
some great shots and it disappeared again, for perhaps another 10 minutes
before I spotted it again (at some distance.

Because I had seen this bird Saturday and today, I am encouraged to
recommend that others might want to look for it.  I am still looking for the
Slatey Backed Gull Phil Bartley and James Cleaver reported. The marina roofs
were empty this AM.

A good morning  for birding (and I am back at work)!

Moscow-Pullman Christmas Bird Count - Saturday, 17 December, our 45th
consecutive CBC.

We welcome anyone interested in birding; enthusiasm is more important than
expertise. Our count circle is divided in two halves. Those wanting to
count on the Washington side should contact Marie Dymkoski in advance of
Count Day at marie-dymkoski AT msn.com. Those participating on the Idaho side
should contact Kas Dumroese at kas.birder AT gmail.com in advance of Count
Day. The compilers request that everyone register online through National
Audubon Society's CBC portal; the circle code is IDMP. Washington birders
will meet at 6:30 am at the Daily Grind on Main Street in Pullman. Idaho
birders will meet at Starbucks at the Palouse Mall at 6:30 am.

Good birding!

My girlfriend, Emma Ruggiero, and I headed up to Steptoe Butte on Friday in
search of some new birds for the year. We started off looking for the Long
Eared Owl, and ended up finding 3 including one that was easily
photographed. While looking at the LE Owls we heard a PINE GROSBEAK
singing, which was a great bird to find. While Emma and I were
unsuccessfully looking for sparrows, my girlfriend spotted a STELLER'S JAY.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to relocate it and could not add that one to
the year list. While we looking for the Jay we had a flyover flock of about
10 Bohemian Waxwings. Lastly on the summit there were 4 Gray Crowned Rosy
Finches. We stopped at other spots but we were unable to find anything note
worthy. Not a bad 60 degree November day!

Norma Trefry & I found 12 snow buntings this morning on Wheatdale Rd in
Lincoln Co where Terry Little & Jon Isacoff found them a week ago.  We
reported to Chris Janett, who went out & located them.  He reported they
flew west. They were graveling on the road just south of the farm with the
3 scarecrows next to the mailbox.

Thanks Jon & Terry for the report.  It took 3 tries, but was so worth it.

We dipped on the tan-stripped white-throated sparrow that Jan Reynolds &
Joyce Alonso found in Davenport Cemetery yesterday.

We had lots of raptors: red-tailed, rough-legged, n harrier & one Kestrel
diving on a
red-tailed hawk on Detour Rd.

5 N shrikes and horned larks everywhere.

Not to bad for a few hours._______________________________________________

Phil Bartley just texted me to confirm a Slaty-backed Gull at the Marina 
at Bateman Is. I saw it this morning but wasn't sure as it didn't give 
me great views of all the field marks. Thank you Phil for following up! 
It is an Adult and we wonder if maybe the same one as last season.

Thanks to a phone call from Jo and Bruce Reed, we were able to enjoy the sight

The Swans were still present when Terry O'Halloran, Catherine Temple and I left

On a clear moonlite night, who knows if they will spend the night.

   Hello all,

This morning I was startled to hear the call notes of a CANYON WREN, and 
hurried outside of the house in time to photograph the wren near a small 
pond... a new 'yard' species at my Scott Rd. residence. 


As I followed the movements of the wren through the understory brush in montane 
mixed conifer forest, a BALD EAGLE suddenly flew by and 1/4 mile distance was 
soaring 10 mintues with a GOLDEN EAGLE, soon joined by a harassing COMMON 
RAVEN. The flatter wing profile of the bald eagle in flight was in distinct 
contrast to the slight dihedral (V-shaped) profile of the golden eagle, which 
also had golden hackles and faint 'windows' in the wings - I think a subadult - 
in contrast to the white head and tail of the bald eagle. Photos of the wren 
and distant eagles in flight are posted on the submitted eBird checklist at: 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32437873

This morning at Mann Lake there were seven tundra swans resting until a dog

I was watching I heard more swans calling overhead and a second group of
six birds joined them. Not huge numbers of birds, but nice to see them and
hear that beautiful swan music.

We hadnt seen nor heard the adult male Annas Hummingbird at our place in

werent around much over the weekend, and frankly had gotten a bit blas
about him being around.  Well today (7 Nov.16), a hummingbird showed up at
the feeders, but this time it was an adult female ANNAS HUMMINGBIRD!  Im
hoping the male is still around somewhere in the neighborhood, because if he
is, he might be one lucky guy (was actually getting kind of melancholy
listening to him singing away out back, all alone, for weeksfingers crossed
buddy).

 

Good Birding,

Carl Lunblad and I enjoyed a few hours birding (mostly) northeast Latah
County this morning. At the Potlatch sewage ponds were a single Bonaparte's
Gull and a single cooperative female Greater Scaup, the latter fairly rare
in the county. Photos of both are in eBird.

From there we headed up to Skyline Drive in McCroskey State park where we
drove west 13 miles to King Valley Rd. and returned via Desmet. Skyline
Drive was fairly quiet although we flushed a Ruffed Grouse and Varied
Thrush off the road (and we both agree the lovely forests along the road

~25 Gray-crowned Rosy-Finches (mostly "Hepburn's") in the grassy
open-forest on the west side of the ride. The flock was most interested in
feeding in weedy, grassy areas right next to the road and along a low rocky

a Great Gray, but it seems unlikely to me that they would inhabit that
area.....possible migrants?  Great Grays are locally common here in
Woodland and so hubby is very familiar with how big they are and what they
look like.  Has anyone else ever seen one over in that area?  Thanks for
your help.

A nice adult male PURPLE FINCH showed up briefly at our feeder today (5 
Nov.'16) in the Loch Haven neighborhood of Hayden, ID (Kootenai Co.).  Would 
have posted earlier, but he was only around for a few minutes and hadn't 
returned by the time we left for the day.  If by chance he returns, I'll post 
a follow up.  After getting the chance to read up a little further, I'm 
reasonably certain he was from the "Pacific" population (Haemorhous purpureus 
californicus), though initially was thinking he was the more expected (though 
still very rare) "Eastern" (H.p. purpureus) due to the extensive nature of wine 
coloration over the entire bird, including the wings.  However, the few 
streaks on his flanks were "muddy", as was the streaking on the back. Another 
nice surprise from the yard this week.  Again, will keep y'all appraised if he 
does shoe up again. 

Did not see or hear the Anna's Hummingbird today, but it was nice, so hoping 
just wandering around a little like all of us are after the dreary month we 
just surfaced from.

I took a stroll around central Moscow, this afternoon, and had my first of
fall BOHEMIAN WAXWING flying with a flock of Cedars.  It was my earliest
arrival date in Moscow, by one day, I think.  I also had a continuing
MYRTLE and 4-5 Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Merlin, and a
Slate-colored Junco.

Good Birding,

Hello All,
I had an odd looking sparrow this morning that wouldn't hold still for a good 
look. But we were out cleaning gutters this afternoon and during a rest break 
it came with the usual house sparrows not ten feet away under a feeder and I 
saw for sure that it was a white-throated sparrow which I suspected earlier. 

My yard is in north Spokane, less than a mile west of Northtown.

Mann Lake was not too exciting with the usual geese, Mallards and Western 
Grebes 

With four lonely looking Killdeer were the first two Dunlin of the year, making 
the trip worthwhile. 

They usually hang around for awhile.

Hi Birders,

The Clark's Grebe was not present this morning at Hordemann Pond in
northeast Moscow.  One GBB and the usual Mallards.

The UI Dairy lower pond was full of Mallards and Canada Geese and at least 8
B.h. minima Cackling Geese.

Good Birding.

4-7pm, 842 6th St. Clarkston. I will be displaying 3 of my latest bird

.and hopefully it's a good one!  I was thinking earlier this week that it
was odd that we hadn't had any "Slate-colored" Juncos show up yet at our
place in Hayden (Kootenai Co., ID), but then realized that maybe it wasn't
so unusual given we have been locked in this crap weather system for over a
month, and that stuff trapped up north might make it our way when things
broke.  We got our break, and Jon reported those Snow Buntings down at
Heyburn SP (Benewah Co., ID) on Tuesday (1 Nov.'16) - great find in addition
to the his other goodies.  Then yesterday (Weds., 2 Nov.'16), I was very
pleasantly surprised to look up and see an AMERICAN TREE SPRARROW in the
lilac just outside our kitchen window; added bonus: Yard Bird!  Quick check
under the feeders and presto, three (3) "SLATE-COLORED" and one (1) male
"CASSIAR" DARK-EYED JUNCOs - the "Slate-colored" drought was broken.
Hopefully now we'll start getting more raptors, buntings, redpolls, ..

 

In addition to these typically "winter visitors", our adult male ANNA'S
HUMMINGBIRD has set up shop, so I guess he's now a "typical winter visitor".
The sparrow only stayed for literally a few seconds, but the Anna's should
be around if interested in chasing, just let me know.

 

Bring on the Snow,

Doug
