Henry Armknecht was nice enough to show my family and I the area where the
sapsucker had been seen.  Sure enough as soon as we approached the area the
bird showed itself.  Good looks were had by all.  Upon watching the bird at
a distance it flew towards us and landed in a tree about 50 ft away.  A
great experience.  We did not pursue it as to hopefully keep it comfortable
in it's surroundings for future viewing.  I'd encourage others to do the
same.  The sighting occurred at 4:15 Sunday afternoon.

Subject: Suet Log Feeder
From: Jeff Hansen <jeff.hansen.sd AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2017 17:53:43 -0500
I got a new "Trail Camera" from Bushnell and it takes very nice

pictures.  I decided to aim it at the suet log feeder last month. Check
out the variety of birds that come to eat at it.  I especially like
seeing the brown creepers.

https://youtu.be/e3MscERJUKo

In my opinion the best way to attract suet eating birds is to make your
own suet and serve it in a suet log feeder.  The suet log feeder has 1"
diameter holes drilled part way through.  The suet is stuffed in the
holes. Birds attracted to this suet include the following birds shown in
the video: northern flicker, downy woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker,
dark-eyed junco, brown creeper, white-breasted nuthatch, yellow-rumped
warbler, black-capped chickadee, Carolina wren, European starling and
house sparrow.

Finally had some purple finches come to the feeders.  There were three 
of them.

I also heard a phoebe calling outside of Dillon's at 29th & Urish this 
morning.  Not where I expected to hear one although there is a creek 
next to it.

Also had my first cowbird of the season yesterday.

The big birding surprise of the day for me today was a Bewick's Wren
foraging in the brush pile in my backyard. This species has been a Ford
County nemesis and this was my first sighting of one in the county! It's
probably merely coincidental, but I can't help but wander if it was
displaced by a recent fire and is out exploring.

It was a very nice early Sunday morning along the Kaw. I walked for a couple of 
hours and identified 31 species. A few were 


Snow Goose - a single bird standing near the riverbank in a grassy area in the 
south side of the park 

Bald Eagle - immature near the Mass Street Bridge
Carolina Wren - 10 calling
Eastern Phoebe - 4 - 2 calling (one was singing near my hose this morning as 
well); 2 were in usual breeding areas 


White-throated Sparrow - 1
Fox Sparrow - 2 - one was singing in a bushy tangle near the north stream
Song Sparrow - 8 - lots of song
Swamp Sparrow - 1

Yellow-rump Warbler - 9 in dull winter plumage & just chips

It was just nice to be out - lots of usual suspect song M Doves, Chickadees, 
Titmice, House Finches, RB Woodpeckers, Cardinals, WB Nuthatches, & especially 
C Wrens. Spring approaches.

Gene Young and I surveyed the wetlands yesterday. Duck numbers were way

the wetlands. Baird's Sandpiper was added as a new arrival. Some of the
better shorebird areas are starting to dry up. See link for full report.

Hi all,


On a tip from Dave Klema, I made a trip to a couple of rural Russell Co. roads 
to the southwest of Wilson (Stickney & 204th and Winterset & 204th)to look for 
Short-eared Owls. He had three in the area earlier in the week, so I took 
advantage of the relatively calm conditions to see what I could find, I saw 8 
N. Harriers flying the grasslands and had a dozen Greater Prairie Chickens fly 
over from a stubble field into the grass. Lots of both meadowlark species 
singing and I had a single Vesper Sparrow on a fence by the road. I was 
rewarded for persistence as the sun sank below the horizon by a single SE Owl 
flying fairly high about a quarter mile away. I soon saw another a mile to the 
north and had one sitting on a post a few yards ahead of me when it was getting 
almost too dark to see. A great evening to be out!l,

Subject: Central and Western Trip Report

Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2017 17:48:23 -0500
Over the past three days March 14th through 16th Micky Louis, Kathy
Carroll, and myself took a trip to central and western Kansas in search of
Chickens, Longspurs, and Waterfowl (CLAW). This is the second year I tried
a CLAW trip and hope next year a similar opportunity exists.  We left
Tuesday March 14th from Overland Park and arrived at Quivira before noon,
where two lingered Rough-Legged Hawks were mixed in with a good diversity
of waterfowl, and we saw our first Least Sandpipers and Snowy Plovers of
the year. We struggled to find waterfowl at the other sewage lagoons in
Ford County but did have a Say’s Phoebe at Spearville WTP. In Hodgeman
County we saw breeding plumage McCown’s and Lapland Longspurs as well as 
Lesser 

Prairie Chickens on County Rd D north of Dodge City.  With our two of three
targeted life-birds for our group seen on the first day we headed further
west with hopes of finding a few others.



On March 15th we had a very productive drive along Deerfield Lane, with a
handful of Ferruginous Hawks, a Prairie Falcon, a flyby Chestnut-Collared
Longspur that unfortunately only I saw well and then inadvertently flushed
when backing up, and two early LONG BILLED-CURLEWS.  Along the river roads
south of Syracuse we found Scaled Quail, a Curve Billed Thrasher, a
cooperative singing Say’s Phoebe, and many Black-billed Magpies. Three
Common Ravens were visiting roadkill with a Bald Eagle along County Rd J
while a handful of Rough-Legged Hawks were still in the area. Waterfowl
numbers at Lake McKinney were amazing, with 11 male Cinnamon Teal.
Waterfowl numbers were nice on most of the sewage ponds and lakes west of
Garden City on the 15th, surprisingly more diverse and greater numbers than
the day before between Great Bend and Dodge.  We were not successful in our
search for a Golden Eagle, but could not complain with the other wonderful
surprises and migrating Sandhill Cranes found at almost every stop.



We had a handful of owls calling below the dam and Cedar Bluffs and crashed
late Wednesday night in La Crosse. Two trumpeter Swans and a pair of Cinnamon
Teal highlighted the drive through Cheyenne Bottoms and we checked a few
other locations on our way back to the KC area today.  We ended with almost
a thousand miles and over a hundred species for the trip.  Time with
friends, a few photos for memories, and enjoyment with nature were the true
highlights however.



Good Birding,


Malcolm Gold (Overland Park, Kansas)

My brother joined me for a trip to Quivira NWR this AM.  Good duck numbers
noted with about 11 species seen. Oddities were a count of 61 Snowy Plovers
on the north mud flat and I heard one American Bittern doing it's odd call
just before the sun came up on the east side of the Wildlife Drive.  Barry
had a number of wrens NW of the Wildlife Drive and reported two female
Purple Finches.  These were all quiet when I made it to that area.  The
Eagle was sitting on the south next and the north nest appeared empty.  We
did not look at the middle nest.  I heard both Yellowlegs but saw no other
shorebirds apart from a small group of Peeps.  (Least?).

Lunch at Roy's Hickory Pit Barbecue just north of 4th on Nickerson Road in
Hutchinson.  I knew Roy as a kid as I delivered the Hutch News to him.
Roy is gone now but the new owners still run a great little business with
very good food.  They are open from 11 to 2 Tue to Sat.  There are a lot of
chain barbecue places birders can patronize but this one is the real deal.
Highly recommended.

Subject: Quivira report and eagle nest update
From: Barry Jones <barjones78 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 17 Mar 2017 09:23:54 -0500
Today, 17 March 2017, at Quivira's Environmental Education Classroom area, 
there were 10 FOS Tree Swallows. Also at least 2 Snowy Plover on the flats 
north of NE 170th St. Otherwise, still a couple 100 Sandhill Cranes 
refuge-wide, and no geese except Canadas. 


Eagle nest situation, as of today:
Santana Natural Area nest: adult has been observed sitting on nest for several 
weeks, likely incubating. This nest can be seen from the road, 1/2 mile north 
of the junction of NE 140th Avenue and NE 105th Street, looking west (this is 
northwest of Little Salt Marsh). 

Southwest Big Salt Marsh nest: regular activity seen up until a couple of weeks 
ago, but no adult seen on the past several views - situation uncertain (could 
be the viewing angle). This nest is 1/3 mile north of the NE 140th Street 
blacktop, west of the Artesian Well pulloff. 

Northwest Big Salt Marsh nest: no regular activity on this nest, other than 
occasional roosting. It was used for nesting last year. This can be seen on the 
northwest portion of the Wildlife Drive. 


At least two credible whooping crane reports for the upper Great Plains just 
this week, so keep an eye out for them. Today's date is very near the average 
first sighting date for Quivira.

RIP Lloyd....

Lloyd and I had a lot of fun razzing each other and talking birds - often 
via email. He ran the Wreford Breeding Bird Survey for quite a few years 
which starts right outside of Junction City and meanders through Geary 
County. I reminded him every year that I wanted that route! As he started 
having more and more mobility issues he contacted me and had me run it 
with him a couple of year and eventually turned the route over to me. I 
was very appreciative of that and continue to run that BBS route to this 
day. He tracked a lot of changes in bird populations  - something I've 
tried to continue and expand on. His tracking of Eurasian Collared-Doves 
was really good - the link may have disappeared off the ksbirds.org 
website but I need to check and get it back up there. 

Lloyd was one of the original members to the Kansas Bird Records 
Committee, as it is currently organized, service from 1991 - 1997 and 
again 2000 - 2006. He served on the KOS Board as a director from 1992 to 
1994. Lloyd compiled the Seasonal Birding Roundup for the KOS Newsletter 
from June of 2001 through December of 2004.

Lloyd, thanks for all you did...

Chuck

Hi Folks,

This evening (Wednesday) I saw about 10 Killdeers on the Little Arkansas River, 
near sunset. About a week ago I heard some in the same spot, but it was darker 
that day and I only heard them. Also today, with the Killdeers, there was a 
unusual Northern Pintail swimming along with the Mallards. 


I still have a least one Red-breasted Nuthatch coming to my feeders in 
Riverside, here in Wichita. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Subject: Galena, KS/Schermerhorn Park Fish Crows, March 7
From: Jenn Rader <jennrader34 AT GMAIL.COM>

Hi folks. Just a quick report from down southeast. I had two Fish Crows in
Schermerhorn Park this morning (S. of Galena, Cherokee Co.) and an Eastern
Phoebe in my yard yesterday. Both firsts of the season for me in KS. Was in
the Rogers, AK area last week (only about 80 miles south of Galena) and had
several phoebes, Fish Crows and Black Vultures there. Figured it wouldn't
be long for the first Fish crows to show up here.

Refuge-wide waterfowl survey was conducted at Quivira this morning, 9 March. I 
don't have all of the totals yet, but in general not many geese (only about 300 
snow and 100 cackling) or sandhill cranes (less than 100). Duck diversity very 
high, though, with all regular/fairly common species present. A few notable 
birds from this morning (FOS, at least for me here at Quivira): 


Wood Duck (5 in Unit 63)
American Avocet (1 along the west Wildlife Drive)
Eastern Phoebe (HQ)

Also, a total of 6 Cinnamon Teal, including one pair along NE 170th Street 
flats, and 23 Tundra Swans in northwest Big Salt Marsh.

SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 8 A.M.,  CHISHOLM CREEK PARK, WICHITA
SECOND SATURDAY BIRD WALK

Bring your binoculars and discover the ever changing varieties of birds
that visit and live in Chisholm Creek Park. No birding experience is
expected or needed, no membership in any organization is required, and no
question is too elementary. Expect 1-2 miles of walking on paved paths. The
walk will last approximately 90 minutes. Meet at the Great Plains Nature
Center parking lot. In case of rain, the event will be cancelled.

Access to the fort is no longer restricted, however, you still need to get a
pass from the visitors center (1 block north of K-7 and Metropolitan, the
last street/stoplight in north LV).

 

The bottomland forest and thick understory was busy with sparrows today. 20
Fox Sparrows and 5 towhees (mostly Eastern, maybe a Spotted) was a
highlight. Interesting to hear many singing Fox, Lincoln's, Song, Harris,
White-throated and White-crowned.

I started seriously birding in my late 30's. I knew Lloyd as the voice of the 
Kansas City hotline where you called in your sightings and left a message. One 
day I reported a Swainson's Warbler at Lake Jacomo in the middle of the long 
list of sightings that day. Not really realizing it's rarity. Lloyd immediately 
called me back and we had a great long conversation with the details and 
numerous answers to my questions about birds and rarities. He was such a wealth 
of information. A lot of my early KC influences are gone now and it makes me 
sad. Goodbye sir.

A flight of 8 Sandhill Cranes flew over West Wichita at 10:05 Wednesday the 
8th. They were calling continuously as they flew north aided by the strong 
south wind.

I received a report today that a roadrunner was seen in Great Bend this
afternoon. It was seen by a hairdresser on the bypass. He saw one in the
same location in 2010. I will have to look this weekend.

This may have already been taken up, but how much earlier than normal does 
migration seem, so far? 


Here are some quite dramatic graphic

All,


Sorry to hear of the passing of Lloyd Moore today. He was a great guy and an 
early influence on my birding career. I was saddened by how he had to spend the 
last few years of his life - in poor health and basically house-bound. I do 
know he relished living vicariously through the bird sightings of others, even 
though he was no longer able to participate himself. RIP my friend...

Subject: No Sighting: Wings Over Weston
From: Christine Kline <birdsecretary AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Thu, 9 Mar 2017 18:12:46 -0600
Wings Over Weston has three needs this year so we're reaching out to our
birding friends to see if anyone has an interest in helping us out.  Our
needs are:

 

1.       We need a Peregrine Falcon on Saturday, May 13.  Lakeside Nature
Center attends and brings a Peregrine Falcon, but they are extremely low on
staff and volunteers and don't have the resources this year.  (We have
already contacted MU Raptor Rehab, World Bird Sanctuary, and Operation
Wildlife.)  If there are any other places we're not aware of, we're hoping
someone can let us know who that is.

 

2.       We need someone who is knowledgeable about Prairie Chickens to
volunteer for our Prairie Chicken booth on Saturday, May 13.  Matt Hill with
MDC has offered some supplies and Wings Over Weston has a banner for this
booth.

 

3.       We need two outgoing birders to teach 4th graders how to use
binoculars and to take them on a short 10-minute hike.  Birding 101 is a
station we offer on Friday, May 12 when we host approximately 200 fourth
graders who are divided into eight groups and are rotated through eight
stations from 9AM to 2PM.  This person needs to be outgoing and have an
"adventurous" voice to make this seem exciting to children.  

 

If you're not familiar with Wings Over Weston, it began in 2010 as a
one-time festival that introduced the Iatan/Weston River Corridor Important
Bird Area to the public.  Seven years later, it is the largest one-day
birding festival in the Midwest with a very unique niche - children.  Wings
Over Weston introduces birds, their migration, and the importance of
conservation of habitat to children, the birders of tomorrow.  If anyone has
a question, please don't hesitate to reach out to me off-list.  Wings Over
Weston is Saturday, May 13 from 9AM to 4PM.

Cheyenne Bottoms
2 drake Cinnamon Teal across the main loop road from the bathroom
5 Prairie Falcons within a mile on the Nature Conservancy property
500 or so Sandhill Cranes just south of Redwing
Eastern Screech Owl at the wilderness camping area west of the CB

Quivira
300 or so Sandhill Cranes south of the Headquarters
15 Tundra Swans at the west intersection of the Wildlife Loop and 170th

Subject: Golden-crowned Sparrow continues in Ellsworth County, 9 March
From: David Seibel <dseibelphoto AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 10 Mar 2017 13:21:32 -0600
I was very late to the party, but yesterday I finally made the pilgrimage
to Ellsworth County with Galen Pittman, who had kindly been sending me text
messages for the past month and a half every time someone else saw the
Golden-crowned Sparrow first discovered by Kevin Groeneweg on 7 January.
These messages were gentle reminders that the bird, which would be a new
addition (#411) to my Kansas life list, had been ridiculously cooperative
week after week for dozens of birders, staying almost exclusively in a
single brush pile just a few feet from the road and routinely popping into
view within minutes or seconds.

We arrived shortly after noon and promptly found most of the species that
had been previously reported in the brush pile... except for the
Golden-crowned. An hour later, we had seen those same species quite a
number of times, but still no sign of our target bird. Finally, just as we
were contemplating formulating a Plan B, the bird apparently awoke from its
midday nap and started to forage at the south edge of the brush pile,
mostly scratching like a thrasher on the straw-covered ground but
occasionally sallying upward as if after an insect. I got a few photos to
add to the burgeoning documentation of this very attractive 1st winter
bird, which I've posted on BirdsInFocus (short link: goo.gl/bAm03T) and
with my eBird checklist (http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35071091).
In my archives I also have some nice shots of the bird foraging among fresh
cow pies... and in my archives is probably where they will stay.

It was a great day to be out. We also found a Mountain Bluebird,
Red-breasted Nuthatches, Cedar Waxwings, and an Eastern Screech-Owl at
Wilson Lake in Russell County and a Rough-legged Hawk nearby in Lincoln
County. Our complete lists are on eBird.

tried several spots on my way home to find a Eastern Screech Owl without
any success. I took the dogs out for their last chance to do their duty.
While waiting on them, l played the tape and I was rewarded with a Screech
Owl. I did not have my binocs but I think  it was a grey phase. This would
be a first for my yard.

Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Kylee Sharp, Nick Pumphrey, Joel Hoelscher , Cal

had seen or heard Smith's Longspurs consistently for the las several days.
So we were hoping to get a new survey bird today. We didn't see or hear
them from the diagonal path. So the next step was to form a line and walk
the field. Still didn't seem to be working to promising. But a large light
colored floppy winged bird came up  and we were all delighted to see a
Short-eared Owl. The owl is a new bird for the survey. We did not get the
Smith's Longspurs but did get a Short-eared Owl.

The Great Horned Owl may be off the eggs and have young ones.  It was
sitting up higher.
The nest is in a tree on this 927 acres.

My wife had a meeting in Salina today, so I took advantage to bird a little
in the area. Ottawa State Lake produced an apparent first county record
Hermit Thrush. Driving cross country from Salina to Marquette, I ran across
a mixed bluebird flock that contained at least 3 Mountain Bluebirds. They
were first sighted in Saline County just as I came to the McPherson County
line and flew into McPherson County were I was able to get good looks to
confirm at least 2 males and 1 female Mountain Bluebird. There were also at
least 5 Eastern Bluebirds. The rest of the flock flew off before I could see
them not back-lighted and get an ID.

It was brought to my attention that eBird was probably not going to have
accurate data on Saw-whet sightings and that person was correct, I went
back and looked and there are almost no sightings of the bird at all in OK.
I was attempting to demonstrate that the birds were gone from there by now
and moving through Kansas as others had suggested but my surfing skills
failed the test.

If I remember correctly eBird does offer an option to hide reports so they
are probably getting some data but that doesn't do the rest of us any
good...

Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2017 18:16:00 +0000
Back in 2013, I had a student helping me do a little census of Saw-whet Owls. 
On the first night he had them at two of five locations around Tuttle. Our 
batting average went down as we ended up with them at five locations out of 20 
sample sites around Tuttle and Milford. Still 25% was pretty exciting. Our 
report might have encouraged others to look and as I recall a total of 11 
calling birds were subsequently reported across Kansas that winter, including 
two or three at Milford in our study area heard by Chuck Otte (on Corps 
property) and Mike Rader (at Milford State Park). Apparently 11 is not a 
particularly high or unexpected number as the previous year the Missouri River 
Bird Observatory in Missouri had banded nine in one night and banded a total of 
40 for the winter at two sites near Marshall, MO. - Ted

The potential Sedgwick Co. breeding record from Haysville was one of the 
more perplexing Sedgwick Co. bird records I encountered.  I spoke to at 
least four skilled birders who all could vividly recall seeing two 
Saw-whets "every night" throughout the summer of 1977 in Haysville but 
no photographs were taken and no one seemed to have any notes of any 
kind except for one August 8 date from Vannoy.

There is no doubt that we miss a lot of them.  This past November Mia 
Revels and some of her students set up nets at one specific location in 
NE Oklahoma to see how many Saw-whets they would get. Over six weeks  
they caught and banded over 20 of them.  At one fixed point within an 
hour or two of Kansas.  That is an amazing number that prompts the 
question of how far you could or should extrapolate those numbers.  She 
posted a lot of pictures of them getting banded on Facebook.  They are 
as cute as it gets, even when they are obviously quite annoyed.

I can't remember the source for this statement, but I have been told 
somewhere along the line that they are most responsive to recorded call 
playback in February and March as they are northbound to the breeding 
grounds.  So well, about now.

Subject: Saw-whet Owls
From: Tom SHANE <tom.shane AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 20:13:14 +0000
My suggestion for locating Northern Saw-Whet Owls is to look for whitewash on 
lower limbs of cedars or pines. Indeed look to the top of those trees incase a 
Long-eared Owl is roosting, however you will most likely not see a Saw-Whet 
even if it is there. While on the 1993 Black Mesa, OK CBC Sara and I went up to 
a stand of pines on the Regnier Ranch which was along the Texakeet (the place 
must have a dozen different spellings). I was looking for Sapsucker wells on 
the Ponderosa trunks when I observed a pine bough moderately covered with 
whitewash. Looking up I immediately made eye contact with on of the tame little 
NSWOs. I now understand no one is allowed on the ranch these days. If you are 
one of the younger birders today, you missed one of the greatest birding spots 
on the High Plains of NA. There were a lot of great birds discovered there 
during the 20th Century, along with much birding and ornithological history. 
Doc Sutton's ashes are scattered up one of the side canyons. Reading stories 
about the NSWO banders certainly indicates the species is far more abundant 
than one assumes. One of Ken Seyffert's neighbors in the middle of Amarillo had 
a dog that brought two NSWOs to their back door in one week. However, if you 
are casually birding most of the time you are probably not going to encounter 
the species more than a couple times over a 50 year period, which is my 
experience.

Green-winged Teal - 592
Cinammon Teal - 3 (a pair still along NE 170th)
Northern Shoveler - 58
Northern Pintail - 1,045
Canvasback - 311 (most in Park Smith pond)
Redhead - 764
Ring-necked Duck - 67

Received a copy of a picture of a white owl from Feb 15th in the trees on
the south side of the Cottonwood River bridge on the west side of Marion.
The girl who saw it said it looked like an owl and it certainly looks like
a snowy owl.  I'm waiting for the original picture.

Wanted to post in case anyone was out looking around in the area.

CT, my home state, does not allow owl postings on the listserve. This
includes all species but keep in mind that the number of birders in CT
dwarf KS. An interesting story that I read on the MA list serve this
winter: During one of the state's birding blitzes/bird-a-thons, an observer
found a Boreal Owl in a lone conifer along the Cape Cod shore. Several
other observers saw the bird and photographed it so intensely that it flew
and was never observed again. That species is found in New England once or

Subject: Cheyenne Bottoms Report
From: Curtis Wolf <cjwolf AT FHSU.EDU>
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 16:00:12 +0000
Karl Grover called this morning (Feb. 23) to report 4 Swans in Pool 3a near the 
Redwing road. 


I also drove through Cheyenne Bottoms last evening (Feb. 22). What a gorgeous 
evening. 


I didn't have anything too spectacular, but duck numbers and diversity are 
impressive-Gadwall, Wigeon, Mallard, Shoveler, Pintail, Green-winged Teal, 
Redhead, Ring-necked, Lesser Scaup, and Bufflehead. Mallards, Pintails, 
Gadwall, Wigeon, and Redheads are probably the most abundant, but I saw 
multiples of all of the species listed. The bulk of the ducks are in Pools 4a 
and 4b along with several 100 Coots. Light geese numbers are also impressive, 
but seem to have declined a bit in the last 48 hours, but I estimated at least 
30-40,000 last evening in several Pools. Most afternoons there is a large 
congregation of light geese in Pool 1A. There have been 150-200 pelicans 
hanging out in Pool 1C and/or 1B. Another group of 100+ were in Pool 5 last 
evening. Good number of gulls, mostly Ring-billed as far as I could tell. The 
gulls are liking the "north hub" near the vault toilet where KDWPT is currently 
pumping water from Pool 4a back into the storage pools. There were a few groups 
of Sandhill cranes flying low in the air over Pool 5. I have not seen any 
Sandhills on the ground around the Bottoms, but I assume some are 
roosting/feeding in the area, but not nearly the numbers being seen at Quivira. 
And, the murmurations of blackbirds in the evenings are still pretty awesome 
with 10's to 100's of thousands of blackbirds roosting in the cattails. Many 
males are displaying and setting up territories. 


Several Killdeer were flying around the KWEC yesterday afternoon as well. I 
could have sworn I saw a yellowlegs dip down into the marsh behind the KWEC 
yesterday afternoon as well, but I never got a good look. 


I hope everyone can get out and enjoy the changing seasons.

They could probably be breeding in the state, too! Although Nebraska has
native coniferous habitat (i.e. Pine Ridge (NW NE), Wildcat Hills (SW NE),
and places along the Niobrara River valley (N NE), where they do breed (see
links below), it wouldn't be that much of stretch for them breeding in
remote, coniferous-infested regions in Kansas.

I am very intrigued by Henry's saw-whet owl story, and have often wondered
why sightings for this species seem so rare. As birders, are we not looking
for it, not recognizing it when we encounter it, or is the saw-whet owl
extremely rare in Kansas? My experience with this bird is limited, to two
encounters in consecutive years circa 1990 in Geary County. It is such a
cute owl, and fairly tame (as Henry alludes), I would think it would be
reported more frequently.

Very simple Jeff - they are easily overlooked. They are small, generally 
solitary and do not always respond to recordings. Two things have to happen 
- you either totally and completely by luck stumble on to one OR, you go out 
specifically looking for one in a systematic fashion. They are in Kansas every 
single winter - I have no doubt. But they are just too easily missed.

To be right honest, when I do encounter them, I frequently do not report them 
as it often creates a stampede usually to the detriment of the owl's well 
being.

I went to Cedar Bluffs this evening hoping for a stray Woodcock, but didn't see 
or hear one. I did hear a lot of owls. They were mostly Great Horned, but I 
heard probably at least three Long-eared Owls and various calls that I was 
unable to pin down to a species. 


I also had a bird come quickly to a Saw-whet call. I only saw that it was very 
small as it landed in a cedar right in front of me. A little later, I saw a 
silhouetted bird that seemed like a very tiny owl fly across the road in the 
same place. 


Glassing the lake earlier, birds were scarce. I saw three Bald Eagles and three 
Red-breasted Mergansers. 


On the south side of the lake, I saw quite a few Mountain Bluebirds scattered 
along the roads.

Subject: Whooping Crane population growth (2006-2015)
From: Kenneth Kinman <kinman AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 03:06:55 +0000
Hi all,

 Whooping crane populations (both wild and captive) continue to slowly grow. 
The numbers that I have for mid-December 2006 were 373 wild plus 145 captive ( 
for a total of 518 whooping cranes). The latest numbers I found for February 
2015 (listed at the Quivira website; 
https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Quivira/wildlife_and_habitat/whooping_crane.html ), 
a little over 8 years later, show 442 wild plus 161 captive (for a total of 603 
whooping cranes). 



 The biggest loss has been in the Florida non-migratory flock (which was 53 
back in 2006, with only 8 left in 2015). But that loss has been more than 
offset by gains in the Aransas flock (was 237, increased to 310) and the new 
Louisiana flock (was 0, now 29). I haven't found numbers for 2016 yet.

On the other hand, a friend of mine and I were birding in western Indiana
near the Wabash River a few years back when we came over a rise and saw
five very tall white birds in a field.

Friend says: Those have gotta be decoys.

Nope. Whoopers.

So, as someone who has done both the plastic Great Horned Owl and Wal-Mart
bag Snowy Owl trick, I am happy to report that it sometimes cuts both ways.
