This early afternoon at Mann Lake I had this lovely juvenile sandpiper working 
the edge of the mud by itself ( there were three other Pectoral Sandpiper 100m 
away.)https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/29938772886/in/dateposted-public/ 
https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/29858965902/in/dateposted-public/ We have 
had a large number of Pectoral Sandpipers this year. 

This is a juvenile bird, as is to be expected in late September.
This particular bird seems unusually bright and has an eye ring, very dark 
rusty cap and distinct supercillium. 

In this photo the  cap does not appear to be split.

Hi All,

This morning I had a nice tan-striped WT Sparrow at Idler's Rest (Palouse
Land Trust property) on Moscow Mountain northeast of Moscow. Wednesday
evening, during my birding class, I had a brief look at another WT Sparrow
along D Street where it crosses Paradise Creek (Fosberg property) in
northeast Moscow. I've also noted a decent number of Yellow-rumped Warblers
on the move through town the past few days.

thanks, Charles.

Keith, that looks like an American Golden-Plover to me, with its long primary 
projections and not really any yellow on the head and neck. The lack of visible 
toes projecting beyond the tail in flight is consistent with American, but that 
flight position (spectacular photo!) might not show the difference.

Hi,
I have a small group of people who are interested in visiting Mt. Salmo for
a weekend, and I am wanting to know more about it. Of course our intentions
are to get the many boreal species that are found there. Unfortunately I
wasn't able to go last year like I wanted to so I still don't know what it
is like. First how long do we have before the weather takes over and we
can't make it up. Im assuming that time has to be getting pretty close,
although I havent heard of any snow yet. Secondly can you camp up there, or
what would be the best camping situation? I have the Washington Birding
guide but it does not really go into camping possibilities in that area.
Thanks for any help you can provide!

Charles Swift and I also birded Mann Lake for several hours this morning,
partially with Mike Clarke and company.  We tallied 55 species including a
lone GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE (with about a thousand Canada buddies), a
PEREGRINE FALCON, the SANDERLING, a (likely continuing) SHORT-BILLED
DOWITCHER, the BLACK-NECKED STILT, twenty-some PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, a few
BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS, numerous American Pipits, and various landbird migrants
including Swallows, Sparrows, and Warblers.  Our complete list, with some
lousy rarity photos, is on eBird:

I spent about an hour late yesterday afternoon looking for this without
luck. My wife and I tried again this morning. After about 45 minutes of
walking, we finally came on a mixed flock of Black-capped Chickadees (5),
Red-breasted Nuthatches (4), Ruby-crowned Kinglets (7), and Lesser
Goldfinch (4) at the corner of 5th and Howard. I pished a couple of times,
which pulled the chickadees right in, and then the first-fall CSWA flew
into a mostly dead white birch along the Frontier parking lot, where I
could easily see the yellowish wing bars, light gray underparts, fairly
bold white eyering, and yellow-greenish back. It's head was cocked funny
for me so I missed the crown, and within just a few seconds it flew right
over me heading east. A sufficient view but not very satisfying. We tried
to track it again, but it seemed like the flock separated, with the
chickadees heading northeast and the nuthatches going southeast and the
kinglets just going silent.

Good birding,

This AM in a light rain (0800-0820) I had what appears to be a juvenile 
Sanderling on the East side of Mann Lake 

As I was leaving, Mike Clarke and a WSU visiting Professor were arriving, so 
hopefully they also saw this bird. 

We normally get 1 or 2 Sanderlings at Mann lake this time of year.

Hi birders,

I've spent the last hour chasing a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER around the
vicinity of my yard. I haven't managed a picture, but got some excellent
looks at 10-foot distances. At the time I didn't know what I was seeing and
only now have identified it with Sibley based on all of the field marks
seen. It appears to be a first winter female - a complete white eyering,
clean light gray underparts, two quite broad, well-defined yellowish-white
wing bars, and the most noticeable feature that initially caught my
attention - a strikingly yellow-greenish back and head. It was behaving
like a warbler as well, also a big reason why I wasn't able to get a good
picture. It was moving with a mixed flock of birds - kinglets, OCWA,
Warbling Vireo, chickadees. Also exciting was an adult WHITE-THROATED and
juvenile GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW. And a late Western Tanager. I'm heading
out but feel free to snoop around my yard. The bird spend the last hour
along East A Street between Howard and Monroe.

Subject: hummer this a.m. and many birds yesterday
From: Nancy Miller <nmiller AT moscow.com>
Date: Wed, 14 Sep 2016 12:59:17 -0700
Hi

I saw a hummer this morning at the feeder just as we were locking up to head
to town. Hope it returns.

 

After days of my complaining of no birds, for some reason only they knew,
yesterday was the day to check in at our place. Once in the morning and then
again in mid-afternoon there were lots of birds - 23 total species that I
noted. Everything from sapsuckers, bluebirds, to kinglets and woodpeckers.
The only draw seemed to be water as they are ignoring my feeders.

Subject: Sheep Lake Plovers-yes
From: Richard Baltierra <wolfbaltierra AT gmail.com>

I couldn't resist going on a last minute plover chase after seeing Jon's
report. I arrived at 5:30 and spent the remainder of daylight enjoying the
plethora of shorebirds. After almost giving up up I was finally able to
spot the 2 Plovers. I spent about 30 minutes looking at them as the sun was
setting. I now, tentatively, believe one of them to be a BLACK BELLIED
PLOVER as this individual appeared chunkier, and paler than the nearby
AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER. Jon what do think about this, am I imagining
things? Not only was I able to get the plovers I added even more shorebirds
to the list that Jon had. Here is my list. The amazing part is many still
went unidentified because of lighting.
1 BLACK BELLIED PLOVER
1 AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER
1 Semipalmated Plover- among the killdeer
14 Killdeer- at least
2 STILT SANDPIPERS- hanging with the Yellowlegs again
15 Baird's Sandpipers
6 Least Sandpipers
36 Pectoral Sandpipers
10 Western Sandpipers
118 Long Billed Dowitchers-best estimate
2 Red Necked Phalarope
1 Spotted Sandpiper - tail bobbing away
2 Solitary Sandpipers - unexpected but neat
8 Greater Yellowlegs - Towering above most of the birds
5 Lesser Yellowlegs
Now this was my best day at Sheep Lake. Since my golden plover wish came
true, I think I'm going to hope for a ruff now! Great birding!

I went out to Sheep Lake to see if I could do better than last week's
abysmal haul of only Killdeers and Pipits, and I ended up finding a lot
more! I found a total of 12 species of shorebirds:
~25 Killdeer
2 STILT SANDPIPERS- Found foraging in the middle of the lake with  3 RN
Phalaropes, and both yellowlegs. I got a really convenient and awesome
comparison between the Stilts and the 2 species of yellowlegs. This was a
long awaited life bird, so it was extremely helpful to have that comparison.
2 SANDERLINGS- It was only 2 weeks ago when I last saw this rare inland

Headed back to Mann Lake this morning to see if I could catch another
glimpse of that peregrine. No luck on that, but did see a nice flock of
pectoral sandpipers, about a half dozen black-necked stilts and plenty of
killdeer. The dog did his best to help with birds in flight photos and did
put up several pheasants, too. Best shots of the day were of an osprey
practicing it's fishing technique. I'm sure the dog splashing through the
water was both a help and a hindrance as it made several attempts, but came
up empty-taloned. Photo series starts here:

From: Robert Bond <gandrbond AT gmail.com>

On Saturday afternoon, Sept. 4, we saw an Upland Sandpiper in a meadow at 
Coolin on the south end of Priest Lake. This is the third Upland Sandpiper we 
have seen in this same meadow. The last one was two years ago in late August 
which I was able to photograph. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me 
this time. We have to be wondering where these birds are nesting and where they 
are coming from, as it certainly appears there is some sort of pattern being 
established.

While running the dog this morning I attempted to take photos of the
shorebirds. Not to be, as they suddenly took to the air and not because of
the dog. In hot pursuit was a peregrine falcon. I was able to watch the
chase through the binos, but too far for photos. Three times the peregrine
made attempts to get the fleeing shorebirds. Each time several of them dove
at break-neck speed into the lake to avoid being caught. It was crazy
thrilling! On the last try I thought I would see the catch, but again the
shorebird hit the water with a splash and the peregrine circled and finally
flew off. Interesting to see how they avoided being breakfast!

Thought some might be interested in this recap of the birds blown into AZ
with the storm resulting from the hurricane that hit Mexico this week.

On a side note I saw a hummer just leaving the feeder yesterday but it was
moving too fast to identify or photograph. Maybe it will return today.

Hello birders,

Yesterday was a rather incredible day in southern Arizona for storm-blown
birds. Keep your eyes peeled today as some birds may wander, trying to find
the ocean. If you find a dead or injured bird be prepared to rescue or
salvage it. 

A partial recap from yesterday (I'm sure there are things I missed); most of
this is gleaned from facebook, eBird and other sources:

Caspian and Forster's Terns

Multiple (20-25) storm-petrels of at least two species (Least and
Wedge-rumped) from Patagonia Lake to Amado STP to Houghton Rd and Fred Enke
Golf Course in Tucson. 2-3 were seen from yards (!) and two found in roads
and parking lots. Another species could be represented by photos taken
yesterday as well. Wedge-rumped would be new for AZ if accepted by the ABC. 

A flyby Wedge-tailed Shearwater at Amado STP - another potential new AZ
record. 

A flyby gadfly petrel - likely a Juan Fernandez Petrel - from southeast
Tucson. This would be a new record for the ABA area and of course AZ as well
if accepted.

Keep the updates coming today!

Tucson RBA

If you find a bird, this is from Tucson Wildlife Center:
We already have several patients, please if you find grounded Storm Petrels
(or others) bring them in immediately! They will be in terrible shape and
likely injured and need immediate medical attention. We will stabilize them
and are collaborating with International Bird Rescue to get them back to the
Pacific!! PLEASE HELP! They will be in terrible shape and getting them into
treatment immediately may save their lives. There are people on duty
tonight.

If you find one, put it in a cardboard box with a soft old t-shirt in the
bottom. Do not attempt to feed or give water. If it is a larger bird, beware
that they bite and have very sharp edges to the beak and hooks on the end an
can do real damage.
For those, cover them with the tshirt and put them burrito-like in the box.
Cover, leave them alone, and transport ASAP.

I too went out into Whitman in search of migrants, mostly shorebirds. I
started at Rock Lake where I only had Western Grebes as the highlight. I
then headed to Sheep Lake, and on the way I found 2 GREAT EGRETS on the
Rock Creek crossing west of Ewan. Sheep Lake was pretty dead, with only
Killdeer and a nice flock of American Pipits. I then headed back and
stopped at the Steptoe Sewage Ponds. I had 3 Baird's Sandpipers, 3 Pectoral
Sandpipers, and 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper. My last stop was Kamiak Butte
where I ran into Jon Isacoff and Chris Lindsey. Unfortunately they left
before I was able to relocate the 1YM/F AMERICAN REDSTART (sorry guys). The
bird took some pishing to get out and was very active allowing for no
photos. It really likes the brushy edge near the restrooms. I was also able
to find the FOX SPARROW up the road in the Rangers drive way.  Good Birding!

From: Carl Lundblad <carl.lundblad AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 4 Sep 2016 17:13:16 -0700
Late Saturday afternoon, I birded the Kootenai River Valley from Bonners
Ferry to the international border.   At Boundary Creek WMA I had 26 GREATER
WHITE-FRONTED GEESE with 3 Long-billed Dowitchers being the only
shorebirds.  Ball Creek Preserve had more shorebird habitat, but distances
are far and a scope is required.  Among those I could make out were several
SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS, a PECTORAL, and a Baird's Sandpiper.  A quick loop
through Kootenai NWR was very quiet but pleasant anyhow.

Today I hiked to Fault Lake, above the Pack River Canyon in the Selkirks.
The main highlights were a cooperative hen DUSKY GROUSE and a migrant
Nashville Warbler among mixed flocks of commoner resident and migrant
birds.  A few American Pipits flying around at the lake were likely
migrants, though there is marginally suitable breeding habitat around.

No Mew Gull and no shorebirds at Sandpoint City Beach this afternoon, but a
few common landbird migrants kept things interesting; Hammond's Flycatcher,
Audubon's Warbler, Western Tanager.

Good Birding,

Hello,

After reading Bob Flores’s post about Washtucna, I was excited to get there 
early this morning and bird Bassett Park and a couple of my other favorite 
spots in Adams County. Here are a few highlights from my day: 


Washtucna – Bassett Park – I arrived at 8am and things were pretty dead, 
but by 8:30 the bird activity began to increase. I did not see large quantities 
of birds but there were some nice finds in the two hours I was there. There 
were very few warblers and a moderate number of flycatchers. Nothing seemed to 
attracted to the creek. Most of the activity was north of the park in the 
Russian Olives and Willows.

Think I spotted a Short-billed Dowitcher at 7:40pm last night. There was
not much light and I had my camera in "night mode" but I think I can make
out internal feather markings on the greater coverts and other markings on
the tertials. Please let me know what you think? https://flic.kr/p/KSektT

Went back this morning and could not find a Short-billed but one apparent
Long-billed with clear tertials. Other birds of note included Red-necked
Grebe and Solitary Sandpiper. Missed the ID on the Peregrine / Prairie

From: Charles Swift <chaetura AT gmail.com>

Hi All,

While doing a shorebird survey on Dworshak Res. yesterday I found a juv.
Sanderling at Elk Creek Meadows (about mile 13 on the reservoir).
Sanderlings seem to be occurring in good #'s this fall and this is likely a
first Clearwater County record. Otherwise shorebirds were pretty scarce
over half a dozen locations w/ ~20 Spotted Sandpipers, a handful of
Killdeer, and 2 Baird's Sandpipers. A large group of ~90 California Gulls
were resting on a floating dock at about mile 18 above Dent Bridge (perhaps
feeding on Kokanee Salmon running up the lake to spawn in the river). There
were also a couple of lingering Lewis's Woodpeckers at the Gold Creek burn
(~ mile 36).  Checklist and photos of Sanderling here:
https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S31365451

thanks, Charles.

Howdy, A friend reported the Great Egret flying south over MacDonald School
yesterday afternoon/evening (just southeast of Hordeman's Pond) so could
just be moving around. Of course could really be headed out after this
weekend's weather but very possibly still in the area.

thanks, Charles.

There were many shorebirds working the area, mostly what has been reported
this week. Newcomers were a pair of American avocets in winter plumage.

I visited Kamiak Butte once again and found exactly what I was looking for.
In the brushy edge by the restrooms I was immediately able to pish out a
1st year male/female type AMERICAN REDSTART. The bird provided great looks
as it came in close and was flashing it's yellow patches on its tail. It
was even in the exact spot I found one last year and was very near the same
date too. Other than that Kamiak was pretty quite. Great bird!

I birded Latah, Benewah, and Shoshone Counties today beginning with  2
RED-NECKED PHALAROPES, a Long-billed Dowitcher, and Lincoln's Sparrow in
Potlatch with a few lingering Eastern Kingbirds.  The De Smet Sewage Ponds
produced another Lincoln's Sparrow and a second Benewah County record
LESSER GOLDFINCH.  A couple thousand waterfowl, dominated by Wigeons and
Mallards (plus another thousand Coots) have arrived at the St. Joe Lagoon
just west of St. Maries.  A LEAST FLYCATCHER was in the Shadowy St. Joe
Campground.  In the afternoon, I continued birding the St. Joe River and
then drove south from Avery on Fishhook Creek Road (FR 301) and hiked to
Lost Lake on the edge of the Grandmother Mountain Wilderness Study Area.
The trail was active with migrant warblers and resident forest birds, but
the highlight was my Shoshone Co. first NORTHERN PYGMY-OWL at the lake.

Good Birding

From: Catherine Temple <ctemple99 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 28 Aug 2016 14:20:29 -0700
After receiving some emails from other birders I have decided that the spot
is most likely some type of pollen possibly stuck to sap on it's head. I
had no idea that pollen could be different colors! Sometimes researchers
will mark a bird, but it's apparently kept quite small and usually a bright
color like red, purple or white. I'm satisfied the mystery is solved.
Thanks to all who participated! Special thanks to Ned Batchelder and Kevin
Lucas for suggesting the pollen theory and giving me insight into pollen
colors!

4 Least Sandpiper
2 Semipalmated Sandpiper
1 Baird's Sandpiper
1 Pectoral Sandpiper
2 Wilson's Snipe
1 Bonaparte's Gull

Access is from Kiwanis Road 0.4 mile from West Curlew Lake Road where the
trail crosses the road. Go north and all the above mentioned were in a
small marsh on the left before the main wetland on the right. I was unable
to relocate the county 1st Black-necked Stilt recently found here by Donna

RJ Baltierra, Richard Bishop (visiting WSU faculty) and I birded shorebird
spots in western Whitman County today. Shorebird (& a few other) highlights
included at Steptoe sewage ponds, Solitary, Pectoral, and Baird's (5)
Sandpipers and Wilson's Snipe (3); Great Egret and Horned Grebe at Rock
Lake (also a Prairie Falcon on our 2nd stop heading back); at Sheep Lake,
Semipamated Plover (3), SANDERLING, Baird's Sandpipers (5+), Pectoral
Sandpiper (2), Red-necked Phalarope (7) and several unidentified, distant,
smaller peeps distorted by heat shimmer (shorebirds were generally distant
here although there is some decent habitat). By this time the wind had
picked up considerably and we made a brief stop at Crooked Knee Lake which
had a variety of waterbirds (in poor light conditions), a couple Marsh
Wrens, and Greater Yellowlegs.

thanks, Charles.

Just had this rufous hummer show up in my yard with a light green patch on

purpose. It didn't appear to have any iridescence, but is a stand out pale
green. I was able to get these photos before two other hummers showed up
and the fireworks began. I'll keep watching to see if it comes back for
better photos. Any ideas?

I went out this morning to look for yesterday's Great Egret without luck.
At Horemann Pond/Kiwanis Park in east Moscow I flushed a NORTHERN
WATERTHRUSH from the mud flat under the big willows nearest the street.  It
flew across Eisenhower Road and was still working Paradise Creek east of

Waterthrushes breed locally in eastern Latah Co., but migrants are rarely

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

Are Clay-colored Sparrows seen around the Palouse?

were 43 killdeer and 5 Solitary Sandpipers and a Lesser Yellowlegs present.

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?
