On this blustery Halloween morning at Shawnee Mission Park the wind and cool 
temperature limited our sightings of sparrows but we saw several species of 
woodpeckers including a juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, three Yellow-shafted 
Flickers and one Red-shafted Flicker, several Downy Woodpeckers and Red-bellied 
Woodpeckers. Pictures of the Flickers are posted on our Flickr site 
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ksjboz/. 


We based our identification of the Flickers on Sibley's First Edition, 2000, 
Guide to Birds, p. 318.

Subject: Burnett's Mound Nesting Results
From: Jeff Hansen <hanjd AT COX.NET>
Date: Fri, 31 Oct 2014 12:29:19 -0500
This spring I completed putting 34 nest boxes at Burnett's Mound in Topeka.
This past week I finished cleaning out all of the boxes.

 

What follows are the nesting results for the nest boxes.  

 


Bluebird

6


Chickadee

1


House Sparrow

2


House Wren

2


None

14


Tree Swallow

3


Paper Wasp

6

 

The house sparrow nests were destroyed.  I need to rub bar soap on the
inside roofs of the boxes to prevent paper wasps from nesting next year.

 

Should be interesting to see what next year brings.  I'm quite happy with
the diversity of cavity nesting birds that nested.

All,
I just got back last night from an exhaustive two day trip to CB & Q. I just 
missed seeing the whoopers on Tuesday at Cheyenne Bottoms. Thanks to 
information provided to me by Curtis Wolf, KWEC Manager, Wednesday morning, I 
did make it down to the Big Salt Marsh in time to spot the 5 cranes that were 
seen there earlier by Barry Jones. At first I heard cranes and spotted about 37 
sandhills to the southwest side of the marsh. I just happened to look up in the 
sky to see large white birds with black wing tips. I was able to get my scope 
on them as they climbed high in the sky heading south. I watched until they 
were small white specks in the sky at about 10:45 AM. I was able to make out 4 
adults and 1 juvenile with mostly white and some reddish plumage. It was a 
great day for flying and my guess is these birds went on south. I say that 
because by Noon I counted 185 sandhills that had come in and by afternoon the 
sky was filled with groups of cranes overhead, some of which stopped at Big 
Salt Marsh. I was unable to keep track of how many sandhills there were but it 
had to be in the hundreds if not more. Several hundred were lined up on the 
west side of the marsh with a large contingent of white-fronted geese that had 
moved in over the course of the morning. When I first arrived that morning, the 
North Lake was devoid of birds but at 4:30 PM there were hundreds more 
sandhills lined up across the lake and facing to the south. Sandhills were 
still coming in when I left for home at about 4:45 PM. It would have been 
something to have stayed and watched until dusk and listen to the din. 

As Paul mentioned there were a lot of ruddy ducks, but the most numerous was 
perhaps the coot. This was also true at CB with coots everywhere. I also saw 80 
Wilson's snipe along the shoreline of Pool 1A at CB, just across from the 
observation tower, the most snipe I have ever seen a one time. Curtis said that 
when he went by early that morning, he estimated about 150 at that one 
location. At this same spot I saw both greater and lesser yellowlegs and a 
single black-necked stilt. Wilson's snipe was the most common shorebird in the 
Bottoms. 

Sorry for the late post but had to get up and go back to work today.

This morning while doing maintenance at well sites, I had a PRFA make a
couple of low level flights across cut soybean fields. There seems to be a
falcon in this area around the intersection of Gerard and Camp Creek Rds,
N.W. of Belvue every winter.

Any recommendations for area birding? My knowledge of the city is limited (only 
moved here last year).

Hi Birders,
   Beside the Thayer`s Gull that Galen reported ,
there are hundreds of ducks on the lake. You need a scope, but they can be seen 
from the west end of the dam, and pull- outs on the west side.

Subject: Late Broad-winged Hawk in Gray Co. / 27 Oct.
From: Scott Seltman <sselt AT GBTA.NET>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:28:51 -0500
Though not record late, a Broad-winged Hawk at a farmstead in NE Gray County
on 27 October was still very late for western Kansas.  I saw it for just a
moment the first time, thought it was a Broad-winged but was not absolutely
sure, but a minute later it soared up above the farmstead and engaged in a
little aerial combat with a Red-tailed Hawk, meanwhile giving me great
views.  It is apparently the first BWHA for Gray County [and was just a mile
from Hodgeman which also needs a BWHA sighting].

 

Not much else to report from Monday.  I did see my first Merlin of the fall
in the same location as the BWHA.

 

A few Sprague's Pipits were still in that field of mine in SW Barton County
on 28 October.  And not far from there, Diane had one run across the road in
front of her at a stop sign, this sighting however in Pawnee County and on
27 October.  A pair of Black-billed Magpies were near Pawnee Rock in Barton
County this AM, 29 October.  Our yard is still full of Ruby-crowned
Kinglets.

Five Whooping Cranes (4A, 1J) were in the northwest corner of Big Salt 
Marsh at Quivira this morning, 29 Oct 14, at 7:32 am.  They were easily 
visible from the scope corner at the southwest corner of the Wildlife 
Drive.  These are the first Whooping Cranes to appear here this fall.

Sandhill Crane numbers have increased from a handful on Sunday to well 
over 1,000 this morning.  Most were at Big Salt Marsh, but a few hundred 
were also at the south end of Little Salt Marsh.

I really burned a lot of gas for the company today.   While passing 
through Augusta within two blocks of the city lake I took a 10 minute 
look at the lake while reviewing a window quote with a customer on 
hand-free phone.  Nothing like reviewing a window schedule while 
glassing the lake...... I did spot a Common Loon out on the lake.  Lots 
of Franklin's Gulls and some Ring-bills, a few cormorants.  I had the 
sense that something interesting was around but didn't see anything to 
substantiate that and didn't have time to make sure.  Of the most 
interest was a Northern Shrike in N. Butler County on NW 150th (becomes 
Harvey County 1st St)  about 10 miles east of Elbing.  There is a small 
cemetery called Pleasant Cemetery I believe.  The shrike was about 1/2 
mile east of the cemetery. Narrow mask, pale gray, large bill 
structure.  I had many miles to go before the end of the day so I didn't 
linger.  Last seen flying to a solitary tree north of the road about 1/4 
mile out in the field.  This was while I was taking the scenic route 
from Leon to Newton.  No sign of any Snowy Owls along the road near 
Elbing.  I went up to Burns to see if the cafe was open but it was not.  
I reminisced about chasing a White-winged Dove there many years ago when 
this species was a really big deal in Kansas.

Subject: 4 Whooping Cranes at Cheyenne Bottoms
From: Curtis Wolf <cjwolf AT FHSU.EDU>
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:06:20 -0500
Hello.

Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area KDWPT staff called me this morning and 
reported 4 adult whooping cranes present.  They were located in the old 
goose pens in the refuge area south of the inlet canal, just over 1 mile 
east of the KDWPT office and were with a group of sandhill cranes.

Obviously, we don't know how long they will stick around?  KWEC/KDWPT 
staff will try to keep tabs on them.  If they are still present this 
evening, the KWEC staff will be leading a group to try to view them.  We 
will leave the KWEC at 5:30pm if anyone is interested.

Just a reminder, if you come to see whooping cranes, please do not disturb 
them, stay in your vehicle, and keep a 1/2 mile distance from them.

Richard,

I would suggest following the Squaw Creek NWR facebook page. (just search
for Squaw Creek on FB).  They post weekly waterfowl surveys during the cold
season on their FB page. Snow Geese numbers vary greatly season to season
depending on open water.  Squaw Creek is known for the late winter/early
spring Snow Geese numbers (1 million+) when geese start moving back north
and stage at favored areas like Squaw.  As long as water stays open at
Squaw, expect large numbers of geese and mallards.  Squaw is comprised of
mainly shallow pools, which freeze readily, so during the dead of winter,
numbers will actually decrease some as birds are forced south. Anytime from
Mid-February to Mid-March, you can expect tremendous numbers of snow geese
as water opens back up and birds stage before they starting heading back
north.  I think the early Spring numbers are better than late Fall.  If it's
a warm winter and water stays open most of the time, all bets are off.  Who
knows, as it could be great all winter long.

they starting heading back north. I think the early Spring numbers are better 
than late Fall. If it's a warm winter and water stays open most of the time, 
all bets are off. Who knows, as it could be 

great all winter long.

Dan, KSbird,
Rock Wren are short-distance migrants to my knowledge. Vagrants, such as
the Pott cty bird, east of their range do not usually stick to a certain
place and over-winter but this statement is based on records from Il, MA,
LA, and other eastern spots with records. I wouldn't be surprised if the
Pott cty bird tried to over-winter because this locale is close to its
normal climate envelope and habitat preference.

Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge conducts weekly counts during spring
and fall.  So watching the counts can help you plan a trip.  Snow Goose
counts typically start at 200,000 and up.  This is a good time to note that
the rest will soon be following as counts reach as high as 1.2 to 2.2
million!  The Snow Geese typically arrive in mid to late November.

largest numbers of Snow geese as they migrate through. They asked me for
help and I am turning to all of you. How CAN a person stay current on the

Snow geese?

Is there a website?

I have seen a smattering of Sprague's Pipits in the last two weeks north of
Larned, just one or two at a time.  But yesterday, 25 October, a nice FLOCK
of Sprague's Pipits was in a field in extreme SW Barton County.  There
seemed to be about 30 individuals and they would rise together as I
approached on my tractor, fly up at that 45 degree angle like they do, and
then settle back down in a different part of the field.  A few of these
SPPIs were still there today, but not in the numbers of yesterday.

 

Juncos and Spotted Towhees have descended on our Pawnee County yard in
typical autumn fashion.  I've been seeing LOTS of Ruby-crowned Kinglets and
had 7 in one tree by our house on 25 October.  Also present was a Winter
Wren, first spotted by Diane.  I forgot to write-down the first date of
Golden-crowned Kinglets, but I think it was 20 October.

 

Heading west tomorrow and hoping to see interesting things.

Saturday morning we birded Prairie Center just west of Olathe on Highway 150. 
It had been foggy and there was heavy dew on the grass. About 10 am we saw 
about ten LeConte's Sparrows in the little bluestem grass and sumac about fifty 
yards from the west parking lot along Highway 150. We were fortunate to get 
some good photos and posted one on Flickr at 
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ksjboz/. 


We also saw many Yellow-rumped Warblers, Cedar Waxwings, Black-capped 
Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Juncos, Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, some 
Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a Song Sparrow, and a Marsh Wren.

The south side of the park was very active this morning. I had 3 brown creepers 
on one tree. Got a good look at a Tennessee warbler. The gray catbird and 
blue-headed vireos were a surprise. Lincoln sparrows were also a pleasant 
surprise. Ruby-crowned kinglets were abundant. 3 lingering Nashville warblers 
were also nice to see. Also got my FOS Golden-crowned kinglet.

Subject: Quivira report 24-25 October 2014
From: Barry Jones <barjones78 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 12:08:48 -0500
Still a lot of bird activity in Quivira's Big Salt Marsh area in the last 
2 days (Oct. 24-5), with tens of thousands of both American Coots and 
Franklin's Gulls.  A "sweep" of the normal grebe species is possible (Pied-
billed, Horned, Eared, and Western), especially since there have been at 
least 2 Westerns in Big Salt Marsh over the last week or so.

Sandhill Crane numbers are still minimal (less than 50 daily), and 
virtually no Snow Geese have been seen.  Chances are that in a week or so 
these could change drastically, but we will see.  Water has returned to 
North Lake and filled it, with some of the flats along NE 170th still 
fairly dry.

At least 4 Le Conte's Sparrows were in the prairie south of the Visitor 
Center this morning.

Yesterday observed - at a distance in an agricultural field - two birds ascend 
& descend, spinning around each other. 


Of course their descent took them behind a hillock, on private property.

Racking my brain, attempting to figure out potential species that might do this 
in the fall. Horned Larks? Pipits? Longspurs? 


Input & assistance appreciated.

My thanks.

Subject: Shawnee Mission Park - sparrows - late nighthawk
From: "markeland AT kc.rr.com" <markeland@KC.RR.COM>
Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2014 20:59:22 -0500
Today I made a couple of trips to the park. 

This morning the sun, fog and dew were just dazzling. Sparrows still are 
moving though with today having Song as the most numerous and Chipping not 
far behind. The Le Conte's have moved on for now. A Cooper's hawk had 
several of the sparrows spooked in the south field as it cruised through 
landing on the other side of the area. 

At lunch I arrived with a large group of Franklin's Gulls over the lake. I 
stopped to scan through them. While I was watching them an odd shaped gull 
came through. Only it wasn't a gull, it was a Common Nighthawk cruising 
through headed south. This is by far my latest Johnson County one but 
others have had them here into December. 

As I was leaving two Red-bellied Woodpeckers zipped past just over the hood 
of the car. I thought at first it was some territorial thing as they jinked 
back and forth. Then out of the corner of my eye I caught a blur. When I 
stuck my head out the window an immature Cooper's Hawk was streaking by in 
a power dive with wings folded all the way back. Just as it reached the 
tree the woodpeckers were in it spread the wings and landed in the tree. As 
the woodpeckers shot out of the tree the hawk resumed the chase over the 
hill. 

Also this week two hybrid Northern Flickers have been seen in the park. One 
has red moustache stripes, no red on the nape, a brown head and orange 
underparts. The other has red moustache stripes with broken black borders, 
an irregular red triangle on the nape, and yellow underparts. Incredible 
looking birds.

The bi-monthly waterfowl survey on 10/23/14 did not produce many birds to 
count. Due to cloudy skies and low visibility it did not take long to make the 
survey trip. I will just give the waterfowl counts for this report. 

 
Cackling Goose--15
Canada Goose--205
Blue-winged Teal--250
Redhead--86
American Coot--86
 
Most of these birds were in Smith Bottoms in Clay County. Hope there are more 
to count in two weeks.

As one walks the access road to Lake Nebo, the sparrow diversity is still 
excellent - including views of 8 LeContes from 10-15 feet - not to mention the 
five surprising Siskins in the low trees (perhaps as many as 10).

Hello all,
The northern Marlatt Park off of Marlatt Ave is a good destination for
those seeking LeConte's Sparrows in Riley county. Yesterday, Brett
Sandercock found a couple in the morning and Emily Weiser found five this
morning. Later, the group of seven was located about 100-150 meters
northwest from the parking last past the creek bottom. Patiently scan for
movement in the sumacs surrounded by tallgrass. A couple of Sedge Wrens
were also singing and visible. A calling Long-billed Dowitcher flyover was
quite the surprise. A Red-shafted-type Flicker has been present here since
at least Saturday. We are trying to get photos to confirm the occurence of
a pure Red-shafter Flicker.

Hi all,
Dave Klema took a photo of an unidentified bird along the Smoky Hill River 
south of Wilson (Ellsworth County) on 10/16. Jon King saw the photo (knowing 
what it was!) on eBird and said I should take a look at it. Darned if it wasn't 
a male Painted Redstart! Maybe Dave will post the photo later, but it looks 
good for the 4th state record for the species. Pretty odd bird for central 
Kansas in mid-October!

I went to Slate Creek Wetland (Sumner Co.) this morning and had little 
difficulty finding a Nelson's Sparrow and quite a few LeConte's and Swamp 
Sparrows along the dike road west of the observation tower. If you go, bring 
your muck boots! There were lots of Barn Swallows and a few Tree Swallows there 
as well. My conservative estimate was 650, but the number was probably in the 
thousands. Several hundred were on the noticeably sagging wires east of the 
tower and hundreds more foraging all over the marsh. Lots of sparrows, as 
expected this time of year, but I didn't spend a lot of time there so my 
numbers in eBird don't do them justice.

From: Danny Akers <birdmandan1231 AT HOTMAIL.COM>

Hello everyone,

After some extensive backchannel discussion and research, I am retracting the 
identification of the Red-naped Sapsucker at Middle Spring in Morton Co. on 
10/17. 


The current thought however, is that this bird falls into the Yellow-bellied x 
Red-naped Sapsucker hybrid category, and a likely backcross with 
Yellow-bellied. There is a general consensus that this bird has Red-naped 
traits, but retains a larger "genetic makeup" if you will, of Yellow-bellied 
Sapsucker. 


Certainly a fun bird to not only observe, but engage in discussion with. I've 
certainly learned more about Sapsucker plumages and hybridization in the last 
couple of days than I ever thought possible!

Mabel Thurman photographed an imm. Northern Shrike at Cheney (Reno

I have for the Sedgwick County/Cheney area by a few days.  I've been 
hearing Pine Siskins here and there over the past couple of weeks during 
my work travels.  Looks like an "on" year for them might be in the offing.

Subject: 'Fall trifecta'
From: Thomas Schermerhorn <tscherme AT VET.K-STATE.EDU>

We had a trifecta today with our FOS juncos, Harris sparrows, and white 
throated sparrow. Juncos were seen at Tuttle Creek SP, Manhattan (Riley Co) and 
this afternoon, a junco, bunch of Harris Sparrows, and one white throated 
sparrow along our road in Wamego, KS (Pott Co). Few white crowned sparrows at 
both locations. 


Great day for birding!

Danny, the Eastern Meadowlark report is intriguing because of the 'possibility' 
of 'Lillian's' Meadowlark in MT. You might want to review some literature / 
vocalizations just for consideration. Great list of birds!

Hi Folks,

I made a quick pass through Oak Park today. Some birds still around. I saw a 
few warblers, Nashville, Yellow-rumped and Orange-crowned. Also a Blue-headed 
Vireo and my first Winter Wren for this fall. I suspect the Winter Wren is one 
that has been in Oak Park before. It was in the same area I see one every year 
and it stays all winter. The way it posed for me, didn't seem to be the least 
bit wary, makes me wonder if we have seen each other before. 


Happy Birding,

From Yesterday Evening.

 

Surprised to see one Ross's Goose and a few cackling geese this early.  They
were in Topeka at the old Payless ponds on hwy 24.  Appears to be the first
sighting per Ebird of the season for the Ross's.

 

At Jeffrey Energy Center entrance there were about 400 great tailed
grackles.  This seems to be quite a high count for eastern Kansas.  Most
Ebird reports are for 1 or 2 birds.

at Brown’s Park just south of Abilene. We saw 22 species with the highlights 
including a bright male Baltimore Oriole (rather late for this fellow don’t

making a sound. We also saw an Eastern Phoebe, a Tennessee Warbler, a juvenile 
Red Headed Woodpecker and dozens of Yellow-Rumped Warblers.

A good, and very experienced, friend called at about 11 a.m. and said he'd just 
had a whooping crane fly overhead. He was about three miles north of Stafford. 
The bird was mixed in with a flock of sandhill cranes. 


Tom said he's pretty sure the flock is feeding in the area. He'll keep me

Hello KSBirders,
http://www.casacolibri.net/ is the website of Nancy Newfield, one of the
world's pioneer hummingbird banders. I recommend reading the identification
section at bottom of each hummingbird species account ie Rufous
Hummingbird: http://www.casacolibri.net/ruhu.asp
Nancy and her team have been banding hummingbirds along the gulf coast for
decades with much focus on wintering birds. Her efforts as well as the late
Bob Sargent's, etc are responsible for the range depiction of many western
hummingbirds wintering in the southeast. I've been in Kansas since May 2010
and have emailed Nancy numerous times with pictures of Kansas hummingbirds
believed to be something other than Ruby-throat. Every single time Nancy
has determined they were indeed Ruby-throats. Hummingbird idenfication can
be quite difficult so I recommend perusing her educational website when it
comes to identifing your mystery hummer.

Good birding,
E.J.

Rather than flooding you with multiple messages, here's one with several 
unrelated pieces of information!

**********
Milford Lake Bird walk, this Saturday the 18th. Meet at the parking lot at the 
south end of the dam. Annual sparrow walk - come prepared to walk through 
possibly wet grass! Contact me if you have any questions!

**********
The KOS Fall Meeting Field trip bird list is posted. We ended up with 103 
species. The list is at: 
http://www.ksbirds.org/kos/Fall2014/2014_Fall_Meeting_Species_List.htm

**********
Now that Gene has officially blessed the dates for the CBC's, start sending 
me your dates and pertinent contact information for any CBCs that you 
compile. I want to get my annual list posted by Thanksgiving at the latest. If 
you need to know what information I need - visit last year's page: 
http://ksbirds.org/kos/2013CBC.htm

From: EUGENE YOUNG <EUGENE.YOUNG AT NOC.EDU>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 01:26:17 +0000
A couple of you asked about CBC dates this year...sorry for the delay in 
getting back, but the NAS count dates are always the same, 14 Dec through 5 
January...so the KOS dates this year will be 13 Dec 2014 (Saturday) through 11 
January 2015 (Sunday).
