Heard our FOS Chuck-wills-widow at our house off of High Meadow Dr last night  AT  
8:30 walking dogs. At 7:15 last evening we saw for the first time in Manhattan 
on northeast side of town a Great Tailed Grackle.

Subject: Re: Nesting Mallard Question
This was a common question we received when I worked at Lakeside Nature Center in Kansas City. About the only advice I can give is to do your best to keep children, pets, curious adults away from the nest. If the young successfully hatch and you are around you may be able to help them as they travel toward water. Once I remember kind people and even helpful police stopped traffic and protected a mom wood duck and her ducklings as they walked about a quarter mile to a creek. This was right through a busy city neighborhood! I would watch the nest from a respectful distance, keep disturbance to a minimum around the nest and be ready to possibly help "escort" the family on their journey to the nearest water. Hope this helps. Good luck.

A Western Kingbird was seen this evening at the Casey's in Pittsburg. I assume 
he is refueling. ;) 


Also had Eastern Bluebird eggs hatch 2 days ago. Earliest hatch date I have had 
on my trail, near Erie. 


My Purple Martin colony is near capacity with all Adult birds. I have not seen 
a sub-adult yet. Nest building should begin any day now.

Subject: Wings Over Weston ~ No sighting (of course)
From: Christine Kline <birdsecretary AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 21:23:27 -0500
Dear birding friends,

Wings Over Weston is Saturday, May 9.  This will be our sixth year and we
are so proud to report that after five years, it is now the largest birding
festival in the state of Missouri.  Wings Over Weston introduces birds,
their migration, and the importance of conservation of habitat to children,
the birders of tomorrow - the ones that will lead our Audubon groups,
conduct our breeding surveys, participate in Christmas and Great Backyard
Bird counts.  In 2014 we introduced birding to 187 fourth graders on Friday
and 827 people on Saturday.  We also were grateful for the 12 employees from
2 different state agencies, 64 volunteers from multiple MO Master
Naturalist, Audubon, and Wildlife Society chapters.  

 

We are looking for someone with a weather background to talk to children
this year about cold fronts and warm fronts and how they play a role in bird
migration.  We are also looking for three volunteers who can teach children
how to use binoculars and to take them on some short 20 minute hikes.  If
you're interested in volunteering, please contact me.  If you live near the
Kansas City area, please consider attending Wings Over Weston.  Due to
generous donations Wings Over Weston is always free and it'sfun for the
whole family!  

 

For a flyer or more information, you can visit our Wings Over Weston
Facebook page or send me an email (off list) and I will forward you one.

From: Kenneth Kinman <kinman AT HOTMAIL.COM>

Hi Kat, I've read that this sometimes happens with chickens. The bird could 
have a dietary deficiency (not enough calcium?). Or it could be sick or under 
some other kind of stress which causes the egg to be laid prematurely.

Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 17:20:05 -0500
I was able to ID 3 Marbled and 14 Hudsonian Godwits today at Wilson Lake 
in Manooka Park. They were close enough to photo and they were interacting 
with each other so as to give me a look to their tails for ID.  I could 
tell the 3 Marbled were a little bigger.

I saw 14 godwits yesterday and today in the Wilson Wildlife Area too.  
Possibly the 14 followed me to Manooka Park today.  Photos on eBird later.

I am working the midnight shift which is very difficult to find someone
willing to  cover for you, coupled with a wedding that Saturday afternoon
squashes any thoughts of me hanging out with you all. Good luck everyone
and find something good because my plan is to be in the west the following
weekend.

	It is not too late to register for the spring meeting in Scott City.
 It is a great opportunity to see a beautiful part of Kansas, have a
chance at some great western birds, and bird with some great people.

Subject: Wyandotte County Lake - Ross's Goose
From: "Bollin III, John J." <BollinJ AT UMKC.EDU>
Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:40:08 +0000
If anyone wants a nice close up study of Ross's Goose and or Snow Goose I would 
recommend a trip to Wyandotte County Lake. There are 10 white geese that have 
been lingering there for over a week (4 Ross's and 6 Snows). I am assuming that 
all or at least some are carrying lead or are otherwise unfit to migrate north. 
They have been hanging out near the pavilion on the west side of the lake just 
south of the marina. They seem to be used to humans at this point and are 
fairly approachable especially if you stay in your car. 


Also observed at the lake over the last week (9-16 April, 2015) have been 
Canada Goose, Mallard, Northern Shoveler, Blue-winged Teal, Lesser Scaup, Ruddy 
Duck, Common Loon, Pied-billed Grebe, Double-crested Cormorant, American Coot, 
Turkey Vulture, Osprey, Mourning Dove, Belted Kingfisher, Red-bellied 
Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Tufted Titmouse, 
Black-capped Chickadee, Brown Thrasher, Eastern Bluebird, American Robin, 
European Starling, Northern Parula, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Yellow-throated 
Warbler, Chipping Sparrow, Lincoln's Sparrow, White-crowned Sparrow, Northern 
Cardinal, Red-winged Blackbird, Brown-headed Cowbird, House Finch, and House 
Sparrow (these are probably not in correct phylogentic order since I did this 
off the top of my head and not from a list). Regarding the warblers. I observed 
2 each of the three species listed above on 15 April near the ADA fishing dock 
just north of the Schlage Library where you enter the area with the large 
pavilion mentioned above. I had Northern Parula only there on 16 April.

Date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:13:26 +0000
It was a pristine early morning along the Kaw early this morning - one of those 
days that wets the appetite for what is soon to arrive. Great to see fellow 
birders Molly Zahn & Peter Grund out there packing aback their beautiful new 
arrival this morning. They usually find something good I've missed. I found a 
few new species, and listed the same number as yesterday -37. 


Warbling Vireo - (FOS 4 singing- Molly & Peter alerted me to their presence; 
one was singing in the main part of the park blending in with nearly continuous 
House Finch singing; thought I heard yesterday in the area & dismissed) 

Barred Owl (FOS 1 calling - heard in the park starting about this time yearly)

Yellow-rumped Warbler (10 - singing & chasing)
Northern Parula (4- singing)
Prothonotary Warbler (2 singing) - one was blasting its song directly across 
river from the center of the park in the Pileated nesting area at about 7AM and 
a second singer was at the south bridge area on the river path. 

Orange-crowned Warbler (possible - I thought I heard its song in two different 
spots but it did not repeat for long & I did not see it- still have not listed 
this bird yet this year but I expect it is here) 


Mallard (pair; FOSB)
Hooded Merganser (pair - the female fanned her crest and it glowed in the early 
morning sun - a close look on the pond in the adjacent park) 

American Kestrel (1 - on the wire at the park entrance looking for breakfast)
Carolina Wren (10 singing- still have not had a House Wren inside park)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (3- all doing their sweet song notes, with none of their 
chattering call notes) 

Harris Sparrow (1 singing)
White-throated Sparrow (8+ - their full songs were ringing musically across the 
woods at several points- at one stop along the river I had an echoing chorus of 
their song on three sides, occasionally interrupted by a loud Carolina Wren 
doing its thing)

     We have had Waxwings ever day since the 3rd week in Feb. at our 
bird bath--they do feed in the two decorative Pear trees and drink from 
our Bird Bath which we now have removed the "heater" finally...we also 
have a half dozen Harris Sparrows along with two White Crowned 
Sparrows...we do not have our usual Purple Martins although our house 
has been ready --sad to not have their welcoming voices in the yard!

I am very intrigued by snipes.  Captured this video at a sewage pond
southeast of Topeka.  Thought people would like to see it since it's
probably not a bird people see often.

On the 15th Tom Ewert and I saw an Ash-throated Flycatcher at south Meade
Fish Ponds between the road and the pond. We saw it well with a very white
throat and chest and it raised the feathers on the head. It vocalized
several times. This is 5 days before the earliest in Birds of Kansas.

Subject: Notes on migration over Wichita 4-16-2015 including FOS Mississippi kite
From: Steve Seibel <sseibel999 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:42:26 -0700
Notes on migration over Wichita 4-16-2015:

Highlights: Many white pelicans and Franklin's gulls and Cormorants.
Some Swainson's hawks.  1 adult Broad-winged hawk.  1 Mississippi kite
(my first of season).

Conditions-- south or southeast winds all day except turning east
late, like by 5:20 PM.  Blue skies changing to about 50% coverage by
cumulus clouds around 2 PM turning about 30% coverage by mostly
towering cumulus clouds around 5:00 PM turning to 100% thin high
overcast from distant thunderstorms by 6 PM, with some cumulus clouds
below.

In the morning I was at Chapin park in Wichita and started seeing
flocks of Franklin's gulls at about 9:30 AM.  I counted approx 80 +
approx 120 + approx 140 = approx 340.  I left at 10 AM and drove south
a few miles down I-35 and spotted about 100-200 Cormorants soaring,
then 3 more, then about 50 more which were flapping rather than
soaring.  All above the above were headed north.  I stopped watching
the sky about 11 AM.

At about 2:15 I was back at Chapin park and started seeing migrating
birds almost immediately.  I watched the sky till about 6:20 PM.  The
migration seemed to have stopped around 6 PM.  I'll give a list of all
the birds I saw engaged in active northward migration.  All were
relying primarily on soaring and gliding flight.  I'll organize the
list to show the size of the groupings.  Most groupings consisted of
one species only. The larger numbers-- anything above 20--  are only
approximations.

Franklin's gulls: 150 +  65 + 30 + 60 + 26+ 200= approx 531

Cormorants (presumably Double-crested): 20

White pelicans: 6+200= approx 206

Swainson's hawks:  2+2+1+1+1+1+2= 10

American kestrels: 1 + 2 = 3

Broad-winged hawks: 1 (adult)

Unidentified buteo (possible distant Broad-winged hawk): 1

Mississippi kites: 1

Some notes on birds I saw that were not actively migrating north-- a
male Scissor-tailed flycatcher (my first of the season) was visible on
two instances in the treeline to the north-north-east of the model
airplane flying area.  About a dozen Turkey vultures were frequently
soaring.  An adult Bald eagle spent some time soaring and some time
perched in the treeline to the northeast.  A few immature and adult
Red-tailed hawks were frequently visible.  Several American kestrels
and Cooper's hawks were visible.  I saw one buteo far to the north
east which appeared by flight style and speed of wingbeats to be a
Broad-winged hawk, but I couldn't be sure.  It was not actively
migrating northward at the time (approx. 4:50 PM).  This was a
different sighting than the migrating unidentified buteo/ possible
Broad-winged hawk that I noted above.

A few more notes on the migrants:

--  I enjoyed watching the group of 6 White pelicans climb in the
thermal updrafts all the way to the base of the clouds, until they
were occasionally vanishing from view in or behind cloud.  At this
time, Mid-continent airport was reporting the cumulus cloud base to be
3600' above the ground, which seemed consistent with what I was
seeing.  Later in the afternoon the cloud base lifted several thousand
feet higher.

-- The group of about 200 White pelicans -- consisting of several
different "v's" of birds-- came in very high late in the afternoon
(around 5:50 PM), and glided all the way across the sky before
catching a thermal updraft and climbing again.

-- See photos of the adult Broad-winged hawk at
http://www.flickr.com/photos/37889666 AT N03/sets/72157652013918455/
.  It was rather high, so the photos aren't great.

-- About that Mississippi kite-- I saw it about 4PM.  It was quite
high, and had already passed north of it me,  so that I was only
looking up at an angle of 45 degrees or less.  There was no hope of
capturing a photo with my Cannon SX-30.  I kept it in view with my 10x
binoculars until it disappeared far to the north.  I kept hoping it
would come back toward me so I would have a chance of taking a photo,
but no such luck.  I was confident of the ID immediately, but hoped to
be able to better document it.  I made a quick sketch which you can
see at http://www.flickr.com/photos/37889666 AT N03/sets/72157651594897220/
   , but I'm no great artist, so please don't put too much weight on
that.  Although I was immediately confident of the ID, I took some
time to note some key points:

* Wings very slender and pointed

* Appeared quite dark and rather uniform; I couldn't discern any
details of contrasting coloration

* The head did project enough to be visible

* The wing was too narrow for a large falcon or Swainson's hawk or any
other buteo, or for that matter, eagle.  Specifically, the wing was
too narrow, at the base, in comparison to the overall beak-to-tail-tip
length of the bird.

* The tail was not fanned or was only minimally fanned

* The tail was too prominent (long), in comparison to the wingspan and
also in comparison to the overall length of the bird, for any gull

* The tail was too short, in comparison to the wingspan, for a Kestrel.

* The bird had no hint of the "M" shape of a gliding osprey, as seen in 
planform 


* I couldn't really make out the fine details of dihedral; certainly
there wasn't a large amount of dihedral

* A smaller bird, apparently a raptor, quite possibly a Sharp-shinned
hawk or American kestrel, stooped on it several times.

* At that distance, I wouldn't expect to be able to see any details of
coloration of a Mississippi kite, or to differentiate between adult
and immature birds.

* I'm just kind of brainstorming here and trying to think of a way to
play "devil's advocate" for some other bird, but striking out.  Maybe
a dark-morph Swainson's hawk would be the next closest contender, but
see above about re the wing being too narrow compared to the overall
length of the bird.  And for whatever it's worth, none of the
Swainson's hawks I've id'd over Wichita this spring have been
dark-morph birds.  I didn't have any doubt about what I was seeing at
the time.

I had some books with me and noted that the posture and silhouette
were very consistent with the center right photo on p. 160 of Jerry
Ligouri's "Hawks at a Distance", except that my impression was that
the trailing edge of the wing was a bit straighter, like shown on
Plates 80 and 93 of Brian Wheeler's "Raptors of Western North
America".  All these photos are of Mississippi Kites.

The bird was mainly gliding north-- I can't recall if I saw whether
circle at all or not.  Eventually it was lost to my 10x binocs, far to
the north.  I wouldn't particularly expect it to be seen in Wichita
again any time soon.

One single bird of this abundant species is probably of no real
biological significance, but I sure would have liked to have been able
to capture it in a photo for documentation, considering the early
arrival date.  Unfortunately my Canon SX-30, though nominally zooming
to 35 x optical zoom, doesn't deliver anything like the level of
detail and sharpness I see through my 10X  binocs, so I knew there was
no point-- in all probability I would have never been able to get the
bird into the frame at all, and might very well not have been able to
relocate it with binoculars after that.  It was high and far.

All in all I'd put my confidence in the ID of this bird at a solid 90 to 95%.

For whatever it's worth, I grew up in Wichita seeing Mississippi kites
every summer, and also worked a season observing migrating raptors at
Smith Point TX, including many thousands of Mississippi kites!

Subject: Chimney Swifts
From: Chuck & Jaye Otte <otte2 AT COX.NET>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 20:16:53 -0500
I have a couple of species that I try to track closely for arrival and 
departure 

every year, Chimney Swifts are one of those. 

The Geary County courthouse is right next to my office and it has a large 
Chimney that houses a goodly number of nesting swifts and serves as a 
stopover point for southbound swifts in the fall. Since 1989, my average first 
arrival has been April 18th and my last departure has averaged October 
10th. The range of spring arrival dates has been as early as April 9th and as 
late as the 23rd.  The median return date is April 19th. 

This evening I saw my first swifts, not a lot of them, probably a half dozen or 

so, but nice to see them back.

I did a little playing around with the data tonight and ran a regression 
analysis 

that showed that the swifts were returning about 0.2 days earlier each year. I 
wouldn't put a lot of confidence in that however as it only had an r squared 
value of 0.24. For those who aren't into statistics, that's not a very good 
correlation!

Anyway, the Chimney Swifts are back to Junction City and now I'll wait for the 
Western Kingbirds to return to nest on the transformer beside the parking lot!

a Herring Gull for size comparison.  I will post a photo on eBird.

Yesterday, April 15th I saw and photographed a California Gull.  It was

Not uncommon for Mallards and Wood Ducks to nest far from water. Mom will lead 
them to water if they hatch. Often a journey filled with non-traditional 
predators (cats, dogs, humans, automobiles) so few make it. If they eggs were 
completely gone, it sounds as if a snake got them. If they eggs hatch, and 
humans are nearby, or interact, the young can inprint on humans.

Not an sighting report or zootie update, but I don't know where else to turn.

We currently have a hen mallard sitting on a nest in our bed of Hypericum 
calycinum (Creeping St. John's Wort or Aaron's Beard). We live in suburban 
Overland Park. The closest body of water (other than our pool) is Kingston 
Lake. This happened last year, and one day the mallards and the eggs were gone 
- no broken shells, just an empty nest. 


What do we do? If the eggs hatched, it would be fun for your grandchildren, but 
there is no place for them to swim and/or feed. Do we just sit back and just 
let nature take its course? 


Is this common?

I would welcome thoughts, ideas and suggestions, etc.

Thank you.

Wood Duck (6)
Belted Kingfisher (1-chattering; FOSB)
RW Swallow (two-calling)
Cliff Swallow (colony at Mass Bridge is back - swarming like bees around their

From: Steve Seibel <sseibel999 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2015 06:48:53 -0700
All birds were seen from Wichita unless otherwise noted.  All birds
appeared to be actively migrating north.  All birds were making some use of
soaring and gliding flight, unless otherwise noted.

4-12-- I observed about 45 minutes driving from Towanda area to Wichita
area and about 3 hours in Wichita

Notes are organized to indicate size of each group of birds

Franklin's gulls: Approx 100 (Towanda) + approx 100 (Towanda) + approx 100
(Towanda) + approx 100 + approx 200 + approx 25 = approx 625

White pelicans: Approx 80 (single flock)

Cormorants: 10 +23 = 33

Great blue heron: 1

Swainson's hawks: 2 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 10 + 5 = 25

Turkey vultures: 1 + 3 + 8 + 1 + 1 = 14

Sharp-shinned hawks: 1

4-15-- I observed for about 3:45 in Wichita

Frankin's gulls: 40+30+4+42+60+40+8 = approx 236
Cormorants: 4+18 (flapping only)+17= 39
Swainson's hawks: 1+4+1+1=7
Red-tailed hawks: 1+1=2
Cooper's hawk: 1 (with Franklin's gulls)
Sharp-shinned hawk: 1 (soaring with Purple martins)
Turkey vultures 2+2+1=5

Also noteworthy on 4-15:  2 adult Bald eagles soaring over Wichita but not
migrating.  Several Cooper's hawks engaged in extensive local soaring.
About 10 Turkey vultures engaged in local soaring.  About 400 Cormorant
roosting in trees at a pond on west side of I-35 near milepost 40, south of
Wichita, with about 70 more flying in toward the same location.

Subject: Another migration day over Wichita 4-15?
From: Steve Seibel <sseibel999 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:54:21 -0700
Just saw about 40 Franklin's gulls go over.  Recent past experience
suggests that might indicate a good raptor migration day as well.  Lowish,
widespread cumulus clouds indicate thermal lift but not carrying birds to
extreme hard-to-see altitudes, and provide an optimal backdrop for
spotting.  Light south winds.  Eyes to the skies! Steve Seibel

My brother is getting married in Eudora on May 2, but the wedding is not
until 4:00 PM.  This means that I have al morning to bird at this prime
birding time.

Is anyone conducting a field trip that I could join in or near Lawrence on
May 2?

Thanks,

Subject: ADMIN: Annual note
From: Chuck Otte <cotte AT KSU.EDU>
Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2015 10:36:09 -0500
Good morning KSBIRDers - 

Here in Junction City I was pleased to hear Brown Thrashers and House 
Wrens back in my neighborhood the past couple of mornings. The usual 
early warbler suspects (Black-and-white, Louisiana Waterthrush and 
Northern Parula) are back on territory at the Ft Riley Pet Cemetery trail, the 
hummingbird feeder is filled and hung and I had a brief glimpse at a probable 
Yellow-throated Vireo last night.

We always seem to get quite a few new members each spring , or long 
standing members using new mobile communication devices, or "been here 
forever folks", like myself, that just forget!

PLEASE remember to put your name and your home location in the body of 
each message. If you are reporting birds, tell us when and where. My 
signature block says Junction City, but if I'm birding in Dickinson County, I 
need to say that. Please don't start a sentence in the subject line and finish 
it 

in the body of the message. That gets very confusing! Some of these things 
seem ridiculous and unnecessary but it's extremely helpful in the archives. 
You would be amazed at how many people search the archives for past 
sightings and other research!

Try to avoid using unreferenced abbreviations. You may think that everyone 
knows that a FOS TV is a first of season Turkey Vulture, but not everyone 
does know that. Spell things out so everyone feels included.

Remember that attachments, such as photos, can not be attached to 
KSBIRD-L messages. This helps reduce the size of the archives (which 
Kansas State University provides to us at no charge!!!) and to also reduce 
the risk of viruses and malware being spread about.

Please take the time to read or re-read the guidelines (link to which are at 
the 

bottom of each and every KSBIRD-L message). And if you have any 
questions, direct them to me.

Thank you for your attention and you may now return to normal early spring 
migration activities!!

On my run this morning, to my delight, I heard a Prothonotary warbler
singing in Burcham park. I stopped for a few minutes to try to get a visual
but couldn't track it down, though it sang about 4 times in all. Near the
northern canal along the river trail. Nice to have them back! E-bird
flagged this; I suppose it's a bit early.

Subject: Elk sighting in Washington County
From: Dan Thalmann <editor AT BLUEVALLEY.NET>
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 22:35:33 -0500
Field sparrow numbers have really picked up here (there's my bird comment.)

My three young kids and I were able to add an elk to our Washington County 
mammal list on a trip along Highway 36. Saw it on the north side of Highway 36 
on the crest of a hill, just barely east of the Republic County line. I quickly 
turned around and stopped on a pull-off and we were able to observe it standing 
for a bit and then it took off to the west. 


Couldn't tell you if it was a cow, or a bull that had shed its antlers, but it 
did not have a rack. It was huge. (The first thing that crossed my mind when I 
saw it was "camel.") 


I did take a dirt road to the north where the elk had run, but we never 
relocated it. There were a couple large draws to the west in Republic County 
where it could easily have hidden. 


Anyway, there have been a few more sightings of elk (probably from the Fort 
Riley herd) up here in Washington County over the last few years compared to a 
decade ago.

Wichita Audubon has opened a new Facebook Group "Wichita Audubon 
Society".  This is not in any way intended to conflict with the popular 
Kansas Birding Group.  If you are anywhere in our 50 mile radius or so 
of Wichita, or you have any other past or current affiliation with 
Wichita Audubon and you want to join this group send myself or any of 
the current board members a request to join. We have not fully worked 
out the content that will be available but the existing Page (as opposed 
to a group) has not been getting a great deal of interest.  We are 
hoping that a more interactive group will attract more interest and 
participation.

Subject: White-winged Dove is back
From: Patricia Marlett <pmarlett AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 17:46:33 -0500
Last month I reported a White-winged Dove nest in my neighborhood in Wichita. 
We had a nasty wind storm on April 2 that left this part of town looking like 
it was hit by a tornado. The poor dove nest was in the middle of it and 
disappeared after the storm. Today while walking the dog I was stunned to see 
her back on a new nest in exactly the same spot as the first nest. I never 
would have guessed that she would rebuild in the same location. Guess it was a 
good spot. I'll keep watching (although it is harder to see now that the tree 
has leaves) and hope we don't get anymore microbursts.

About 2 minutes after posting the Sapsucker sighting, a Pine Siskin came in

siskin was replaced by a House Wren.

3 Common Loons present on Big Hill Lake(LB Co) today. Nice flock of 50 American

1 Common Loon present on Lake Parsons (No Co) Yesterday.

Burned CRP in No Co yielded 2 Swainson's hawks, 300+ Brewers Blackbirds, 
Wilson's Snipe, 30+ American Golden-Plovers and 18+ Upland Sandpipers. This CRP

From: Al Schirmacher <alschirmacher AT LIVE.COM>
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:49:48 -0500
Sighting: Apparent first winter female Chestnut-collared Longspur three miles 
north of Larkinburg on Allen Road. 


While scanning ag fields on Allen/Anderson Road along the Atchison/Jackson 
County line - hoping for something besides omnipresent Horned Larks - a funny 
looking longspur popped out of the grassy strip onto a relatively bare field. 
The breast striping, white underbelly and white auricular was noted, although 
didn't pick up any red on shoulder. Perhaps just beginning to transition? Or is 
there any plumage of Smith's that shows no buffy aspects? 


Should you take this ID to the bank? Perhaps not, since this only my third CC 
encounter in 22 years, and full plumage males were noted in the first two. 


Careful comparison with Sibley - only full guide with me - seemed to lead best 
to this option. 


(Bird was in Atchison County)

There are about 30 Hawks at 31st and 202nd Rd. they look like Swanson but am on 
my way to work so didn't have much time.

Given the flocks of 1000-2000 that stage in alfalfa fields in Finney Co. 
in the last week of March-1st week of April as has been well documented 
over previous recent years this should be no surprise.  I think our 
Wichita Audubon group counted over 1700 in one evening near Holcomb in 
2011 or possibly 2012.  Shane and others have postulated that a great 
majority of the northern Great Plains breeding population of this 
species probably stages in these alfalfa crop circles along the Arkansas 
River in spring.

around Muleshoe NWR. You can see the tracks here:

Subject: white house finch in NW Wichita

I got a photo (hard copy) brought by today from an individual who lives west
of the SCZoo in NW Wichita, and it shows an all-white bird at a safflower
feeder.  It hangs with the house finches, so that's probably what it is.
The photo isn't clear enough, and he hasn't looked closely enough, to see if
its eyes are pink, so no judgement on true albino or not.

From: Brett Sandercock <bsanderc AT KSU.EDU>

Kansas Birders:

Long-billed Curlews tagged with satellite transmitters in Texas have been 
stopping in western Kansas on northward migration. 

Transmitters were deployed on wintering birds by staff with the Coastal Bird 
Program with Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program. 

Here is some information on the project from David Newstead, along with maps of 
the migratory tracks. 

David would be grateful to receive any reports of sightings if you see any 
color-banded curlews. 

Looks like Dodge City is the place to be.

Hi all,
Took an hour to go through the Big Salt Marsh area of Quivira NWR on the way to 
work this morning - dawn is a great time to be there! I had 3 Wilson's Snipe 
winnowing overhead at the rail fields, along with 5 Virginia Rails, one King 
Rail and a single Marsh Wren. Still tons of waterfowl there, with N. Shovelers, 
Blue-Winged Teal and Ruddy Ducks making up the most by number. I did have 4 
Canvasback and a smattering of other divers, but nothing unexpected. Lots of 
both yellowlegs, some Snowy Plovers, lots of Baird's Sandpipers and many 
shorebirds too far away on the west side of the Wildlife Drive loop to ID. I 
did have a single Hudsonian Godwit call and drop out of the sky to feed along 
the shore on the south end of the loop. Also had a single Willet on the north 
flats. Great time of year to go through for sure and it will only get better 
the next few weeks. Looked like there was a decent rain there as there were 
some small washouts on the road.

From: Molly Zahn <mollymzahn AT GMAIL.COM>

Some FOSs on my way up to the KU campus this morning: A n. parula was
singing in old west lawrence, and a couple barn swallows were cruising
around the parking garage on the north end of campus. (Peter and I did hear
a parula at Fitch yesterday afternoon, but this was my first in town.)

Also, there is a pair of Cooper's Hawks apparently nesting in old west
lawrence along my walking route; I've seen the male and female together
several times, once carrying nesting material, and today I thought I saw
one of them actually on the nest. I can give more detailed directions
off-list if anyone's interested.

As I thought more about how early this would be for fledglings and questioned 
myself about size differences and such, I went back to the pond this morning 
and the group was still there. Seems my first assessment was off, after looking 
at all my field guides and considering the sizes of the individuals, I'm more 
confident now that what I had was a group of 1st winter/spring birds. Day one, 
one was noticeably larger than the rest and I thought I saw fuzzy feathers on 
the all smaller ones, but on second viewing, with my scope, those characters 
didn't pan out. 


Glad I went back and looked again. Always learning.

Made a swing by a few farm ponds in southern Leavenworth County yesterday on 
the way into Lawrence. At a pond on Loring Rd, about 1/2 mile west of 238th and 
just south of the turnpike bridge, I found one adult and 7 fledgling Hooded 
Mergansers. I looked at Birds of Kansas (new county bird for me) and see that 
this is 2-3 weeks early for this species?

I went out and walked on the Kaw for about an hour and a half after the rain 
stopped at around 9:00. There was quite a bit of song, but mostly from the 
resident usual suspects. I listed 32 species on the walk. A number were likely 
new arrivals I did not see last week. 


A Coot (1- FOS at Burcham)
Hooded Merganser (1-FOS)
Turkey Vulture (1 FOSB)
Rough-winged Swallows (7-vocalizing; FOS)
Cliff Swallows (FOS-checking out & flying around nests at Mass St Bridge - may 
have been more on east side of the bridge) 

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1 singing; FOSB)
Brown Thrasher (2 singing at usual breeding locations; FOSB)
Pileated WP (first time seen since construction began last year-happy its back)
Chipping Sparrow (1 singing; FOSB)

Bald Eagle (1 adult)
Eastern Phoebe (3- a pair at nest site at north bridge & one calling at another 
usual breeding site) 

Yellow-rumped Warbler (9 FOS singers & first in bright breeding plumage)

Near Towanda early this morning I saw 2 groups of Franklin's gulls, then I
saw 2 more groups while walking in Wichita.  I'd estimate 400-600 birds
total.  Just now in the space of 10 minutes I saw 2 Swainson's hawks
circling with a Sharp-shinned hawk, and then 1 more Swainson's hawk.  All
disappeared out of sight to the north.  Strong south winds today.  Steve

Subject: Mt Hope area birds
From: Pete Janzen <pete.janzen AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Sun, 12 Apr 2015 12:19:29 -0500
I took a few hours this morning and wandered around the wetlands in the 
Mt Hope area.  Most of them are dry or almost dry.  Mt Hope Marsh and 
Greenfield Marsh were 100 % dry, Colwich wetland on 167th about 95% dry, 
Patterson Marsh 90% dry.  I did find both yellowlegs and a Pectoral 
Sandpiper on 183rd St. W. about a mile south of K-96 (Sedgwick Co).  
This is an area that often holds water for awhile after a big rain which 
we had overnight.  I was surprised to see a displaying male Bobolink in 
the alfalfa on the other side of the road.  That is about 2 weeks early 
at least.  At the Patterson Marsh (Harvey Co.) , about 1/4 mile south of 
the actual wetland area there were 6 American Golden-Plovers, 2 Upland 
Sandpipers and 25 American Pipits in a muddy field.  I also heard Upland 
Sandpipers overhead at the Worthington Rd Bridge over the Ark. R. (Reno 
Co.) which is always worth a few minutes of looking around.  Also at 
this location there was a flock of about 50 Cliff Swallows .  This 
bridge always has a big nesting colony of Cliff Swallows in the summer. 
Aggressive tree removal at Greenfield Marsh is continuing which is 
probably beneficial to the wetland areas, whenever we get enough 
rainfall to recharge the surface water.

Subject: Oak Park, Wichita
From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>

Hi Folks,

Got some welcomed over night rain here in Wichita. It has been very dry, with 
most of the rain just missing us for months. Yesterday, after helping clean up 
Oak Park, I had my first of the season look at a Warbler foraging in the trees. 
It was not a surprise to see a nicely marked spring adult Yellow-rumped. The 
tree leaves aren't full yet, but as it happens in the spring the lower shrubs 
are getting very dense with leaves. Before the wind came up, I could hear many 
birds singing including the Yellow-rumped Warblers, Towhees, White-throated 
Sparrows, Chipping Sparrows, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Carolina Wrens, Robins, 
Tit-mice, Cardinals, Chick-a-dees, House Finch and even Goldfinches. The 
Cooper's Hawks should be sitting on eggs soon, as the new nest looks finished. 
As of yesterday, there was still a Neotropic Cormorant on the river along the 
Northside of Oak Park. 


Just naming the bird species that were singing in Oak Park yesterday, reminds 
me of one of Oak Parks best features. Being a dense area of leaves (the leaves 
keep the sound in, and the leaves keep outside sounds out). Some time in the 
next few weeks, probably during the first part of May at the peak of the 
migration, when everything comes together, (mid-morning, warm, no wind, sun 
shinning, etc. etc.) there will be so many birds species singing in Oak Park, 
particularly on the Eastside where the trees are the most dense, were the hugh 
Burr Oaks are over 100 feet high, I will have to stop and just let my video 
camera run, only to record the amazing sound of all the birds answering each 
other as they move through the park. I can hardly wait. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Out this morning at Konza, and as mentioned yesterday, lots of field sparrows 
singing loudly. 

Also, lots of activity at the first bridge crossing kings creek after the storm 
cleared, including a waterthrush, american goldfinches, ruby crowned kinglet.
