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.

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 
County side) today, Oct. 19.  This beats the previous early arrival date 
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.

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!

largely in juvenile plumage, very dark brown overall, with a significant amount 
of black in the wings. Signs of molting into adult plumage were already evident 
with a little red coming in on the throat and some already present on the nape.

The Sapsucker was my 450th Life Bird. Neat little milestone. It was a beautiful 
day to be out and one that I think I'll remember for some time to come.

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,

Paul Griffin

Cimarron National Grasslands, Middle Spring

1 Mourning Dove, relatively fresh juvenile plumage
2 Red-bellied Woodpeckers
1 RED-NAPED SAPSUCKER (Lifer #1, see below)
1 House & 1 Bewick's Wren
4 Orange-crowned and 4 "Audubon's" Yellow-rumped Warblers
1 late Lark Sparrow
2 Northern Cardinals
 
The Sapsucker was located in the south end of the area, in the vicinity of the 
last picnic table to the south of the parking area. A female Red-bellied 
Woodpecker was here as well. I tracked the bird around the immediate area for 
over 20 minutes and eventually aged the bird as a first year male; it was still 
largely in juvenile plumage, very dark brown overall, with a significant amount 
of black in the wings. Signs of molting into adult plumage were already evident 
with a little red coming in on the throat and some already present on the nape.

19 MOUNTAIN PLOVERS, in a field just south and west of R road. (Lifer #2)
 
 
Richfield Cemetery

2 Eastern Bluebirds
14 Mountain Bluebirds
 
 
 
For the few of us listers, I was blown away with my updated totals, I added 19 
birds to my Kansas list today and 36 species species to my Morton Co. list. The 
Sapsucker was my 450th Life Bird. Neat little milestone. It was a beautiful day 
to be out and one that I think I'll remember for some time to come.

14 sparrow species at Lake Nebo, Jackson County, including a field edge full of 
responsive LeContes, and a single Nelson's. 


Don't believe have ever had 15 in a day, anyone for a later Chippy, Spotted 
Towhee or something more unusual? 


Interestingly, junco was last of the 14.

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.

Kevin and I took a couple of hours of this nice autumn day to do some birding 
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 
you think?) who was quietly going about his business among the leaves without 
making a sound. We also saw an Eastern Phoebe, a Tennessee Warbler, a juvenile 
Red Headed Woodpecker and dozens of Yellow-Rumped Warblers.

Subject: Stafford County whooping crane

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 
posted if he gets an exact location on where that flock is feeding.

While eating lunch today two Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers made an appearance. I 
did not see any red on one individual so I am guessing that it was a juvenile. 
These are the first I have seen this fall.

Subject: Hummer-ID help
From: Edward Raynor <edwardraynor AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:43:57 -0500
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.

This morning on our way into town, coming down Wellman Road we saw more
gulls than I ever have, anywhere.  Thousands were in several fields,
thousands swirling above and thousands more washing in waves to the same
area.  All coming from the south. Three or more miles of gulls.  An amazing
sight.

All,
After recent posts that the hummingbirds were gone, Diane started paying 
closer attention and has reported seeing hummers morning and sometimes 
afternoons every day since October 8. The exception was Saturday when we 
were not home.  On October 10 at 12:45 she was able to get a series of 
pictures of an individual with rufous in the flank, blotchy sides, the tail 
always closed, white tipped; one shot shows a fleck of orange in the lower 
left tail area; dark patch on cheek.  Yesterday, 8:00 AM and 8:10, most 
likely a different hummer with dark blotch on throat, dark patch on cheek, 
tail closed, white tipped.  This hummer was very interested in the pineapple 
sage.  At 5:30 PM a return visit or a different hummer, did not stay long. 
This morning at 8:22 AM a hummer made a quick check of the flower and moved 
on, could not get the camera on it;  green above and white below. Not the 
best light for pictures or picking out details the past couple of mornings.
Don't give up on the hummers yet.  We are apparently seeing migrating birds 
as they are only seen briefly and not throughout the day, not sure if we are 
seeing the same one for several days in a row or different ones.
Diane has a lot of flowers, reds and purples, on the deck right now.  She 
refreshed the nectar feeder, however, these birds only seem to be interested 
in flowers.  When there is danger of frost we will be pulling the pineapple 
sage up against the house and try to prolong its flowering.  It is a late 
bloomer and there are a lot of buds yet to open if the season lasts.
Not giving up yet,
John and Diane RowManhattan, Kansas

Hello,
A jaeger was seen around noon flying south over the middle of Tuttle above
a flock of 20k Franklin's Gulls. The subject bird was brown with a lightish
nape, no tail extnesion, white primary shafts, and slow wingbeats compared
to the nearby Franklin's. It was observed from the eastern trail heading
north from the dam but the bird was closer to the tower. Attempts to
relocate from the western dam parking lot were unsuccessful. I will be
going back closer to dusk for another search.

During the past week the Big Ditch sweet spot (WIchita) was mowed flat 
so no need to worry about birding down there now.  Always hate to see 
that each fall.  Not much to be done about it as they have to mow to 
remain compliant with the Corps to receive federal flood control money.  
Sure wish they'd do it later in the fall though. Tom Ewert and I birded 
some of the small wetlands between Sylvia and Arlington in Reno Co. 
yesterday afternoon.  There were good numbers of Lincoln's and Swamp 
Sparrows but none of the hoped-for ammodramus sparrow species.  Near 
Haven was a migrating flock of Scissor-tails of over 30 birds seen in 
about 1.5 miles along Arlington Rd.  We were at Quivira for a meeting 
and spent a brief period of time before and after looking around the 
marsh.  Nothing to add to the reports posted already.  American Coots 
and Franklin's Gulls were in huge numbers.

Saline CO SE netted many many redtailed hawks including one very lovely

TONS and tons of killdeer in every disc'd wheat field that has a bit of water 
in it. Amazing. 

And our first of season Northern Harrier for those of you keeping track, either 
a female or a young one and one other too far off to see other than the white 
butt patch as it worked away from us going up a slough. 

Lovely night !

Hi Folks,

Kind of late, but I watched a Common Loon in winter plumage at Harbor Isle, 
here in Wichita this afternoon (Saturday the 11th). Probably still there. Seems 
a little early to me. I didn't see any warblers at Oak Park in the afternoon. 


Happy Birding,

An adult male Surf Scoter was present this afternoon at Lake Parsons in Neosho 
Co. It was rafting with a group of horned grebes. This is a new county life 
bird for me. BOK has early date as Oct 16. 


Also was able to locate an Eared Grebe at the Erie WTP. A first of the year 
county bird for me. 


First of the fall Redhead was present at NWA today. The area is being pumped 
full by the managers for duck season. Almost no shorebird habitat left at this

Hi Kevin and others,


I'm not sure if Yellow Rails "sing" in fall migration or not. However,
there was a Yellow Rail there today! I was lucky enough to flush one
shortly after sunrise.

Also of note were 6 Nelson's Sparrow, and an influx of Marsh and Sedge
Wrens, which were not as abundant earlier in the week.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S20197413

I had a free morning on Wed (8 Oct) and walked 2+ miles through the marsh.
Highlights were 7 Nelson's Sparrow, 53 Le Conte's Sparrow, and 5 Spotted
Towhees. The Towhees were all in the hedgerow at the east end of the marsh,
and five is the most I've seen in one place in east Kansas.

Five members of Wichita Audubon birded Pawnee Prairie Park in Wichita this 
morning. After the big change in the weather, we saw a number of migrants 
pushing through yet as well as a few familiar winter visitors showing up. 
Surprises included one, possibly two Blue Grosbeaks and a Swainson's Thrush. 18 
Orange-crowned Warblers is conservative, and there were quite a few Spotted 
Towhees seen. Winter Wrens are showing up, and we saw a White-throated and 
White-crowned Sparrow. A good morning to be out.

Subject: Rock wren in Pott County
From: Carol Morgan <crxmorgan AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 11 Oct 2014 13:19:42 -0500
Thanks to Brandon Magette for posting information about the rock wren in 
Pottawatomie County.  I talked to Brandon last night and got very specific 
info on where to find that bird.  This morning I explored Jeffrey Energy 
Center (JEC) and found the rock wren right where Brandon described.  It was 
below the first big lake (the make-up lake).  I parked on the dam and 
walked carefully down the steep, grassy dam toward the eastern rock-lined 
outlet/gully.  I found the wren at 9:45am and took some photos.  The bird 
would not let me approach closely so the photos are only so-so, but 
sufficient for documentation.  I'll post a photo on the Kansas Birding 
Facebook page later today.

The entire area at the base of the dam was loaded with sparrows, including 
white-crowned, swamp, Lincoln's, song, and spotted towhees, and one 
vesper.  Numerous other species were also in the area, including flicker, 
goldfinch, bluebird and a Cooper's hawk!

The lakes held Franklin's gulls, white pelicans, dc cormorants, great blue 
herons, great egrets.  One immature bald eagle was seen.

Hello KSBIRDS,

This morning while birding the fields just east of the model airport near
Clinton Lake, I heard (for approximately 10 seconds) a deliberate
"pebble-tapping" call very similar to the call of a Yellow Rail. I was not
able to see what was making the call, nor obtain a recording.

I know that eBird has sightings from that location around this time of year
for Yellow Rail, but I do not know if they call away from their breeding
grounds nor if they call in the morning.

Does anyone have any experience with hearing a Yellow Rail in KS in October?

Thanks!

I saw and heard a male Cassin's Finch at Pueblo City Park in Pueblo this 
morning. This is my second one recently, the other one was at Hasty Campground, 
Bent County on 10/5 (which wasn't accepted by some e-bird reviewer it appears). 
This species has been seen recently in eastern New Mexico and other eastern 
Colorado locations too. 

Pygmy Nuthatches were all over Pueblo City Park this morning too, probably at 
least 20 of them. Mountain Chickadees, Brown Creepers, and Red-breasted 
Nuthatches were all over the Park this morning too. 

On 10/7, two Evening Grosbeaks flew over calling in Rock Canyon, below Pueblo 
Reservoir 

 dam.

The mountain species are really roaming around it seems.

Subject: Clinton Lake sparrows (more precise)
From: Will <willc-t AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Wed, 8 Oct 2014 20:12:34 -0500
I've been asked for some clarification as to where I meant in my post about 
Nelson's Sparrows this morning: I was referring to the marshy area behind the 
main dam at Clinton Lake. It's directly across from the model plane airstrip. 


The Le Conte's and Nelson's are best viewed by walking through the field as it 
borders the path: they tend to flush to the edges. 


More Nelson's will probably show up over the next week, but Le Conte's were 
everywhere. Sedge and Marsh Wrens are really common too. 


I've also had Yellow Rail in that field this time of year, so keep your eyes 
open for any rails flushing.

Today was just one of those days that started great and just kept getting 
better. 

As I drove to the park the full moon was just starting to set behind the 
cloud bank making for a great sight. Once in the park I headed down the 
hill into the north field where Terry Swope and I have had some nice birds. 
I was soon soaked from the dew. Things just kept moving in front of me. 
When I finally reached the mowed lanes I spotted Summer Tanagers, masses of 
Swamp Sparrows, Yellow-rumps,and finally the two Leconte's Sparrows I was 
looking for. They kept bouncing around in the top of the grass giving 
excellent views. I watched one of them eat a green winged insect. Out of 
the corner of my eye I caught something big moving quickly through. An 
adult Bald Eagle coming by fast and low. I then walked over toward the 
south field. Two Flickers were bouncing up and down and chattering. I then 
noticed a third flicker that surprised me when it came out as it had the 
red stripes and brown cap of a Red-shafted and the orange wings of a 
hybrid. I Usually don't see them this early. The south field was Swamp 
Sparrow central. Wow, almost everything was a Swampie. Of course it ended 
way too soon as I needed to get to work. 

I came back at lunch but, there were no sparrows. Franklin's Gulls however 
covered the sky. Then the coolest big bug flew over. It was a wheel bug 
with a huge wheel like appendage on its head. I had never seen one before 
and I watched it until it was time to go.

Some of the best shorebird watching was at the south end of Little Salt 
Marsh, out from the photo blind.  The Red-necked Phalaropes were in Unit 
7, just east of Little Salt Marsh.

For the third consecutive day, Sandhill Cranes have been using the south 
end of Little Salt Marsh for roosting, since their arrival late afternoon 
on Sunday (October 5).  The highest numbers so far were about 150 
yesterday morning.  Greater White-fronted Geese numbers increase daily 
also, with probably 350-400 refuge-wide today.

While doing a routine inspection of the Make-up Lake dam at Jeffrey Energy
Center today I spotted a Rock Wren foraging along the rip-rap at the base
of the dam. With all the rip-rap we have on the plant site I wondered when
one would show up.

This morning I swung by Lake Sherwood in Topeka and had 400 coots and
probably more franklin's gulls all on the water.  Also my FOS ruddy ducks
and wigeons and a lone redhead was mixed in the coots.  Last week I had 200
blue-winged teal on the lake.  

 

At Warren Nature Area I pished at a brush pile and a coopers hawk popped up.
Watched him for a while and then a white throated sparrow appeared.  I've
never had a Cooper's hawk appear from pishing!

To all the birders out at Tuttle Creek Lake near the dam, did you notice all 
the 10s of 1000s of gulls? Were they Franklin's?

Subject: Fall KOS Meeting Checklist
KOS met Friday evening thru early this afternoon in Saline County. We had a good turnout and some excellent papers presented on Saturday. Al Batt presented a very entertaining program last night and Mike Rader was honored as the 2014 KOS Avian Conservationist of the Year. Field trips this morning went to Ellsworth, Ottawa and Saline county. The preliminary list is posted below. If anyone birded those counties from noon Friday through Sunday afternoon and found anything (in those counties! Barton and Stafford county lists from those who skipped out on the great paper seassion Saturday don't count!!!!) please let me know. We are currently at a respectable 99 species, but boosting it into triple digits would be awesome! Thanks to the field trip leaders and as soon as I get any late updates I'll break this list down by county and post it on the ksbirds.org website!

Hi Folks,

I had 3 new fall migrants today in Oak Park. Spotted Towhees, Yellow-rumped 
Warblers and a Junco. In resent days other people have also reported some of 
those birds. 


Orange-crowned Warblers have taken over the most common warbler, followed by 
the Nashville. The absent until now, Yellow-rumped Warbler, has entered the 
park. I only saw immatures and they are normally the last species of warbler to 
migrate though Oak Park in the fall. 2 birds are still missing for this year, 
but they show up a little later, generally, the Golden-crowned Kinglet and the 
Brown Creeper. The 2 Kinglet species, Juncos and Brown Creepers spend the 
winter in Oak Park and recently the 2 Towhees species also. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Subject: coal kills birds
From: Sacie Lambertson <sacie.lambertson AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Mon, 6 Oct 2014 22:27:53 -0500
From *Environmental Building News*, (an excellent source for green building
info), I am posting this short piece; the cat part is well known but not
the coal power angle:

Coal, Not Wind or Solar, Is Worst for Birds
  
 
[image: Printer-friendly version]

 


It might not have a “death ray,” but coal power kills millions of birds a
year, a new report asserts.

*By Paula Melton*
 Avian Mortality By Energy Source


 


 Source: U.S. News & World Report

 

 The thought of songbirds spontaneously combusting in midair horrifies even
the staunchest supporters of solar power, yet all other ways of generating
electricity harm many times more birds, a report claims in the wake of news
that the largest solar farm in the U.S. may be killing thousands of birds a
year
.


“Even if nearly 30,000 birds a year are getting sent to their fiery doom,
that’s a mere fraction compared to other U.S. energy sources,” writes Alan
Neuhauser of U.S. News & World Report

. 

Data from a variety of sources—some of which do not share methodology,
Neuhauser cautions—suggest that the most devastating effects for birds come
from climate change, making coal the worst among the energy sources
considered (see graph). This conclusion is based on a 2009 study by
Benjamin Sovacool
 that
analyzed wind, nuclear, and fossil-fuel-powered plants and concluded, “Wind
farms and nuclear power stations are responsible each for between 0.3 and
0.4 fatalities per GWh of electricity, while fossil-fueled power stations
are responsible for about 5.2 fatalities per GWh.”

Meanwhile, cats remain the largest single known threat from humans (see More
Proof that Housecats Are Birds’ Biggest Enemy

), 

and glass buildings also have a greater impact than any energy source
(see Design
for the Birds: Protecting Birds from the Hazards of Glass

 

).

Hi KSBirders,
I stopped at KCPL wetlands this afternoon after a meeting in KC. Great
place. I had 2 sora run across the dike, fleetingly saw several wrens which
I'm guessing by color were sedge but they wouldn't respond to pishing or
give me much look. I estimated 35 pied-billed grebes but that may have been
low. Did I hear a C. yellowthroat or a mimic? A Cooper's hawk was straffing
the area and at one point, making all the grebes do quick dives as it
swooped around.

Subject: Fall KOS - Salina

THANK YOU to everyone who helped with the KOS meeting in Salina last 
weekend.  I hated to miss all of the Friday evening, Saturday evening, and 
Sunday fun.  Several people mentioned the great Friday evening gathering. 
The local committee went all out to make everyone feel welcome.

Again on Saturday morning, delicious food and drink greeted us on arrival. 
The facilities for the meetings and paper presentations could not have been 
better.  Paper presentations were great.  Thanks go to all presenters as 
well as the support system for the students who did the research and 
presented their papers.

Thank you to the new officers and board members for agreeing to serve. 
Thanks to them and the returning board members, KOS is in good hands.  These 
people work quietly behind the scenes year-round to assure that KOS remains 
active and true to the original mission.  It is a labor of love, but without 
these people, KOS does not exist.

If you have never served in a KOS office, consider how you might step 
forward to lend your skills to the future success of KOS.  If you do not 
want to serve as an officer or board member, consider hosting or helping to 
host a future meeting.  We are always looking for good locations for both.

Debby and I both enjoyed seeing our KOS friends, renewing acquaintances, and 
starting new friendships.  KOS events are special.  If you missed this one, 
begin planning to attend the next.

Three Whooping Cranes were seen with a flock of Sandhill Cranes flying over 
Cheyenne Bottoms at around 2:30 this afternoon. They were pretty high up, so it 
was obvious that they had no plans of stopping at Cheyenne Bottoms. Perhaps 
Quivira?
