Subject: a second Lewis's Woodpecker
From: Ted Cable <tcable AT KSU.EDU>
Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2016 20:39:56 +0000
Yesterday I received a detailed and credible report from a faculty member in 
our wildlife program that his wife had a Lewis's Woodpecker at their house last 
week. She had a close look and clearly saw red on face, pink breast and green 
back. Used their Sibley to confirm the id. He lives in the country near Dwight 
on the Geary/Morris county line. He gave me permission to post this, but seemed 
a bit reluctant about hosting a lot of birders (although I suspect most have 
gotten their Lewis's fix with the Pott County bird anyway). -- Ted

Hi Folks,

This is the first time this fall the water in my birdbath has been frozen, with 
thin ice on the surface. 


Yesterday, I spent 3 hours in Oak Park bird watching. Many birds, mostly Robins 
eating berries. Many Flickers, Starlings and Juncos. Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 
fewer Golden-crowned Kinglets. I did see the very old adult male resident 
Cooper’s Hawk, who looked good as he landed near me in the meadow. I saw one 
or two of, White-breasted Nuthatch, Carolina Wren, Chickadee, Brown Creepers, 
Red-bellied WP, Downy WP and Cardinals. No Winter Wrens, Hermit Thrush, or 
Sparrows seen. I did see a large flock of Cedar Waxwings. Generally, the birds 
seen were common winter birds. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

I had 23 species at Harvey County West Park today after the sun came out.
I heard two and saw one of the resident Pileated Woodpeckers and saw one
Rusty Blackbird.  No Hermit Thrushes (ugh, I had hoped for at least one).
Sparrows included Harris', Field, Fox, Song and Dark-eyed Junco.  The lake
held three Pied-billed Grebes, 2 Canada Geese and one Mallard.  Great day
to be out.  23 species total.

Hi all,


I birded some at Wilson State Park and Minooka Park at Wilson Lake today. I had 
5 Common Loons and a Pacific Loon off Minooka, I also had 11 Horned and 8 
Pied-billed Grebes at the State Park. Lots of Mountain Bluebirds around and had 
a total of seven Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Waterfowl numbers were a little higher 
than a week or so ago, with more goldeneye and Canvasbacks showing up.

Subject: BAS Trip Report - Long-Tailed Duck at Melvern
From: Malcolm Gold <malcolmgold AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 4 Dec 2016 09:27:53 -0600
There were 20 individuals that participated in part or all of the Burroughs
Audubon Field Trip to Lyon, Coffey and Osage Counties.

We started with a flyover Trumpeter Swan along I-35, then went to Melvern
where highlights were a Prairie Falcon, "a Long-Tailed Duck, Red Breasted
Mergansers, Canvasback, Cedar Waxwings, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker and
Merlins" as reported by Kelli Egbert on Kansas Birding Facebook Page.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32833610
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32837063

At Lyon State Fishing Lake the "Long eared and Short eared owls and Smith's
Longspurs" gave us views. We saw a second Prairie Falcon on our way to
Redmond where we saw late Least Sandpipers, Wilson's Snipe, and Neotropic
Cormorants at the Outlet and dredge ponds.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32837065
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32839666

We finished the day with Short Eared Owls south of Williamsburg. Thank you
to everyone that led, organized, and participated in the fun day.

All Field Trips are free and open to everyone. Hope we see you at some.

I and about 15 KSU Park Management students saw and photographed the bird today 
at about 11:30 or so. Same location in the campground area at the west end of 
the dam. 


As a side note, we also had a late (ish) Yellow-headed Blackbird at the KSU 
Dairy Barns. - Ted

Date: Sat, 3 Dec 2016 17:56:47 -0600
I have not been to the LaFarge sandpits in NW WIchita (Sedgwick County) 
very often this fall.  I spent the last 30 minutes of daylight out there 
tonight.  The typical winter pattern of waterfowl and gulls flying in to 
roost near dusk has settled in, with birds still flying in when I left.  
The count of 48 Horned Grebes is unprecedented for December in this 
area.  They were all in a single flock.    Common Goldeneye are often 
present in good numbers by now but not this year.  Hooded Mergansers 
always fly in just at dark.  There were only 20 when I arrived, 135 when 
I left.  They arrive in groups of 3-15.  Buffleheads have a similar pattern.

We will be conducting the Quivira NWR Christmas Bird Count on Wednesday, 
December 14th. If you plan on participating, I need to know as Mary Pat 
Haddican is providing lunch again this year and would like to know how many 
people to plan for. She said this time pizza is on the menu, so if you want to 
attend, she is taking requests on what kind as well! Please let me know in the 
next few days if you are planning on attending. We meet at the refuge 
headquarters at 7:30am. 



Thanks!

Subject: No Lewis after 4

My kids and I looked for the Lewis's Woodpecker from 4-4:45 with no success. 

We focused our effort in the campground area by the dam and also covered the 
area on the west side of the lake further north. 


It was lightly raining the entire time. 

There were three active red-headed woodpeckers including a juvenile. 

Also found:
2 white-breasted nuthatches
2 brown creepers
1 downy woodpecker

While we were disappointed to miss the Lewis's, it was nice to get the kids 
outdoors and throwing some rocks into the lake. The brown creepers were 
lifebirds for my kids. 


Awkward moment - asking a couple who had been strolling the area to the north 
and were about to get into their vehicle and I asked if they were looking for 
the woodpecker. They were like "huh?" I said there was a rare woodpecker seen 
there. They probably thought my question was code for buying drugs or something 
haha.

This morning I saw a loon on the west side of the lake. It was at least a

house on the east side of the lake. It was smaller than the loons I usually
see here and had a very white neck and a light colored bill. I will
continue to try to get a better look. It was head south toward the dam.

Greetings All,


I took Diane out to see the Lewis's woodpecker around mid-day today. It was in 
the same tree that a group of us found it in on Tuesday. After a short time 
there, we headed for Tuttle Creek Lake. While in route on Dyer Road a raptor 
was flying ahead of us and we only had a rear view of a dark colored bird. 
Before we got to the Cycle Area the bird took a right turned and increased in 
altitude where we could get a look at the underside. We pulled off the road at 
the Cycle Area and jumped out of the vehicle where we watched the bird as it 
soared higher and higher. A red-tailed hawk made a pass or two at the eagle 
before it vanished to the east. We went on north to K-13 and east to Cedar 
Creek Road but could not relocate the eagle. What we saw was a very dark brown 
individual with a white patch in its wings; a wide, white band in the tail. In 
Sibley's Guide to Birds, the juvenile pictured on page 126, "often lacks white 
patch above" is like the eagle that we saw. 



Anyone traveling the area to see the Lewis's woodpecker might want to keep an 
eye to the sky. 



Good Birding,

I just thought I'd share that I was able to sit outside this evening (about
4:30) and watch the flickers enter their roosting next boxes.  I watched as
4 different flickers entered nest boxes.  A few weeks back two of them were
squabbling over one nest box.  Two would enter but one was always evicted.
I need to watch closely to see what the sex ratio is.  I do believe most
are males.

So, kind of like a hummingbird, was the reply. I hadn't thought of it that

Danielle Brunin and I were able to see the Lewis's Woodpecker with the help
of Andrew Burnett​ at Pottawatomie SFL around 4pm. Afterwards we scanned
Tuttle Creek Dam and found a Pacific Loon.

Hi all,


I made a quick lap around the Big Salt Marsh area at Quivira NWR at sunrise and 
had a few birds of interest. The number of white geese continues to swell, with 
tens of thousands there now. Good numbers of the expected ducks and other goose 
species were present, and I found a flock of 22 Sandhill Cranes southwest of 
the handicap parking pad on the drive. There were scattered Greater Yellowlegs 
on the east and south sides of the drive and a flock of 15 on the west side for 
a total of 32. I had 4 Lesser Yellowlegs with the Greaters, 2 Dunlin and 14 
Long-billed Dowitchers to round out the shorebirds. No Am. Avocets for the 
first time in months! I suppose there might still be some around however. I had 
a single calling Snow Bunting fly by while I was looking at the Dunlin and 
dowitchers on the west side of the Wildlife Drive. With only 40 minutes spent 
there, I'm sure I missed a few things, but it was great to spend a little time 
looking at the impressive bird numbers.

At dusk we observed a huge flock of Sandhill Cranes heading Southwest-ish over

headed back NorthWest. As we watched and kinda followed, the first bunch, we

was the Lesser-black-backed Gull reported also by Malcom Gold. The number
of Ring-billed Gulls was amazing also --10300.

The raptor numbers were down from the previous count but they did find a
Merlin.

They were still able to find a Virginia Rail.

After not having Cedar Waxwings for awhile on the counts they found 75.

They also found a Rusty Blackbird.

The presence of Red-breasted Nuthatches on the Sim Park golf course (adjacent 
to Botanica and across the street from my house, for non Wichitans) has been a 
nearly year-round occurrence for several years now. I don’t even report them

My eldest joined me this morning as I went back to Clinton Lake in search
of loon that was just too far for scoping and eluded an ID yesterday with
Jennifer Hammett and Andrea Roddy. Luckily we found loons east and south of
the swim beach at Bloomington East, and one of them was the bird that
lingered in my mind after our stop yesterday.

We found a loon with clean gray to white neck, smaller in size , with
rounded head mixed in with Common Loons.  It was actively feeding and with
quick and frequent dives it took a while to identify as a juvenile Pacific
Loon. It might well have been the same bird we saw yesterday afternoon.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32745953

After a couple hours of shopping we stopped at Baker Wetlands East
Restoration to scan the gulls east of Haskell. Mixed in the hundreds of
Ring-billed Gulls was an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.

Report of a possible Lewis's Woodpecker at Pott 2 Lake in Pott Co on Saturday,

Brett,

The Lewis's Woodpecker was at Pottawatomie County State Lake #2, off of 
Junietta Rd. It was on the NE side of the lake. There is a road block at the 
end of State Lake Rd on the west side of the lake and it was directly across 
the lake in some dead trees. I saw a glimpse of it on Wednesday morning along 
the road but I dismissed the idea of a Lewis's. 


I decided to check again today at 3:30 and found it again. It has a dark green 
almost black back, a pink belly and a light colored collar. It was frequently 
harassed by 2 Red-headed Woodpeckers and it even fought with one. When it flew, 
the wing beats were slow. Because of the distance and no scope, I was unable to 
see its face well. 


I'm going to try again tomorrow morning for a better look.

Lynette Muller

Jennifer Hammett​, Andrea Roddy​, Tami Maffitt​ and I spent Black Friday
birding and searching for raptors around Coffey County.

Highlights include:
- Short-Eared Owls in Anderson County at sunrise.
- Le Conte's Sparrows at the corner where 31 turns west north of Harris in
Anderson County
- Northern Shrike an hour west of the airport (Snowy Owl location) in
Coffey County
- Prairie Falcon below the damn at Redmond Reservoir
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32711973
- A Rough-legged Hawk a couple of miles west of Reading.
- Likely more than a hundred each of Northern Harriers and Red-tailed Hawks
(including a couple of dark-morph Western and a handful Harlans)

It was a fun day to be out with friends.

Good Birding,

Greetings All,


While just staring out the window with no birds in the yard, suddenly a flock 
of large birds appeared in the sky out of the north. I was anticipating geese, 
but as they got closer I could see that they were sandhill cranes, 8 of them 
headed in a southwesterly direction. Not quite a new yardbird but new for the 
Hood.

Black Scoters were still swimming along the face of Tuttle dam after 4 PM 
Friday according to Steven Seltman. 


I've been at CB and Q all afternoon and found very little of interest. A couple 
Short-eared Owls are flying around Quivira's Big Salt Marsh at present. Very 
few Sandhill Cranes.

Hi All,


We walked along the dam at Tuttle Creek Lake from the west end all the way to 
the Pott. Co. line: no scoters. We drove to the east end and checked part of 
the way on that end. No scoters seen from 8:45 thru 11:00 AM today.

KS-Birders:


Nice morning for a walk on Thanksgiving Day. My wife and I found a group of 
three Black Scoters diving off of the face of Tuttle Dam in Riley County. The 
drake was obvious, all black with a yellow bill. He was following two females 
with the distinctive face markings of a black cap and white cheek patch. 
Females look like nonbreeding male Ruddy Ducks but their body was all dark and 
a different shape. The scoters were initially with a large flock of Buffleheads 
but then split off and moved easternward along the face of the dam, diving 
within 20 feet of the rocks at the water's edge. We followed for a bit but did 
not flush. Couple of photos in our eBird list:

Report of a possible Lewis's Woodpecker at Pott 2 Lake in Pott Co on Saturday, 
November 26. Pott 2 is a state lake close to Manhattan, on the northeast side 
of town. Bird found by Lynette Muller, sharing the information with the list if 
anybody wants to chase.

Subject: Possible Lewis's Woodpecker

Brett,

The Lewis's Woodpecker was at Pottawatomie County State Lake #2, off of 
Junietta Rd. It was on the NE side of the lake. There is a road block at the 
end of State Lake Rd on the west side of the lake and it was directly across 
the lake in some dead trees. I saw a glimpse of it on Wednesday morning along 
the road but I dismissed the idea of a Lewis's. 


I decided to check again today at 3:30 and found it again. It has a dark green 
almost black back, a pink belly and a light colored collar. It was frequently 
harassed by 2 Red-headed Woodpeckers and it even fought with one. When it flew, 
the wing beats were slow. Because of the distance and no scope, I was unable to 
see its face well. 


I'm going to try again tomorrow morning for a better look.

I had a fun afternoon birding around Olathe and Hillsdale Lake in Johnson
and Miami County. I followed up on a suggestion from Micky Louis and was
able to find Winter Wrens at Ernie Miller Nature Center. The woods were
quiet, but birds quickly appeared to a bit of pishing.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32681053

I then checked Olathe Lake and Cedar Lake, where the later had a large
flock of Geese had two Cackling Geese mixed in.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32682285
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32682908

After three years I was fortunate to see the leucistic Red-Tailed Hawk in
the area (picture). Afterwards I headed south to Hillsdale Lake, where the
duck decoys greatly outnumbered the waterfowl on the lake. Highlights at
the lake include a good number of Bonaparte's Gulls near the marina and
multiple large flocks of Blackbirds.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32683611
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32684318

I found a wooded area and listed to Owls as the last light for the day
disappeared.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and good birding.

Merlin along NE 170th, and a Prairie Falcon just north of Unit 49. 


Road work note: work on the north end of Little Salt Marsh (water control 
structure) will begin in the next few days. Work will take 2-3 weeks and may 
involve brief closures of the road.

Subject: Quivira Whoopers
From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>
Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2016 11:48:08 -0600
Hi Folks,

Sorry for the late report. But, yesterday I arrived at the Little Salt Marsh at 
sunrise, 7:20, hoping the 5 Whooping Cranes were still there. They were. 3 
adults with 2 juveniles. It appeared it was 2 family groups with one of the 
adults missing. I was able to view them from the North end, near the dam, 
looking South. They were out about a half mile. The morning sun was bright, 
making them easy to see, and video. They had found something to eat in the 
recently exposed lakebed, as they have drained most of the water in the Little 
Salt Marsh. The wind came up from the South and in about a half hour was 
probably gusting to thirty mph. That told me the Whoopers were stuck where they 
were until the wind let up, or changed direction. For the next many hours, I 
was able to see many interesting things. They were joined by dozens of Bald 
Eagles, mostly immature, but some adults. I think the eagles were wondering 
what the Whoopers were eating. The Whoopers didn’t seem to mind the eagles 
near them as they are bigger and heavier, and didn’t seem to pay much 
attention to them. As the wind got stronger the Whoopers started to play into 
the wind. I have seen them do this before, they jump up, extend their wings and 
briefly glide down and some times jumping again, doing the same thing and some 
times causing other Whoopers to join in. This time it also effected the Eagles 
as they started to do the same thing, jumping into the air, gliding down and 
they were pretty good at it. This went on and off, for a long time, until 1 of 
the immature Bald Eagles, during a zoom up into the wind, drifted above one of 
the juvenile Whoopers and immediately one of the adult Whoopers (probably 
it’s parent) jumped high into the air, intercepting the eagle, with it’s 
neck totally extended up and from under the Eagle, hit the eagle in it’s 
belly with it’s long sharp bill and the Eagle got the "point” (ha, ha) and 
flew away. After that, the Whoopers separated from the eagles a bit. Later, a 
coyote came out of the nearby very tall heavy brown grass along the shore line, 
and walked towards the Eagles and the Whoopers. It got within 50 feet and both 
the Eagles and the Whoopers cautiously moved out into the shallow water, and 
the Coyote moved back into the grass. The Whoopers eventually moved farther 
away and I had to leave. I note this morning, the wind is from the Northwest, 
and I would be surprised if the Whoopers I saw yesterday are still at the 
Little Salt Marsh. Of course, there could still be Whooping Cranes North of 
Quivira that show up, but I do think we are getting close to the end. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Falcon and Rough-Legged Hawk.

Two more Rough-Legged Hawks were seen later along Humphrey Rd. Sparrow
numbers and diversity at the SFL were impressive. Fortunately for me a few
chickens even flew over as the sun peaked out for the first time.

sparrows along 110. Raptor diversity for the day was nice as well,  with a
Merlin and Sharp-Shinned Hawk.

This morning, 21 November, there were two separate groups of Whooping Cranes at

on the west side of Little Salt Marsh, and a family of 3 (2:1) on the west side 
of Big Salt Marsh. It is possible that the family missing an adult (1:1) is the 
same one reported in Big Salt Marsh yesterday. Today's birds bring the total 
for the fall season at Quivira at 103, a record high for any season here. 


Also, there are as many as 50 Bald Eagles currently refuge-wide.

Just a request as I know many of us, in addition to stuffing our faces, this 
coming holiday weekend, will be out birding as well.

We have two notable species that are fairly common this year that have a 
few glaring holes on the county checklists.

Red-beasted Nuthatches are experiencing a good irruption into the state this 
year. They have been found in 104 of our 105 counties. The odd county out 
is Chautauqua!

Golden-crowned Kinglets are found on 103 of 105 county checklists. They 
are missing on Gove and Greeley county's lists!

There are 44 species that are found on 100 or more county lists, but not in all 

105. The list of "almost there" species and what counties they have not been 
seen in can be found at:

http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/almostall.htm

And the list of 102 species that have been confirmed in all 105 counties can 
be seen at: http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/all105.htm

I've been doing Project Feeder Watch for 20 years and just had my first

Had really good looks at it.  Decided to add water to the pond. We are
really dry in Topeka.  Having a water source really brings in the birds.

  The meeting place for the Red Hills CBC is listed on the Audubon

closed and has been closed for a long time.  This apparently represents 
a failure on my part to catch the error that was published last year as 
well.  The actual meeting place is two blocks down the street at the 
Medicine River Truck Stop, located at 301 N. Fowler. 

https://www.mapquest.com/us/kansas/business-medicine-lodge/medicine-river-truck-stop-350801027 

This is the only truck stop in town and is located right on US 160 at

those who need to know but pass the word as you find it appropriate.

Subject: Quivira Whooping Cranes 18 November 2016

An estimated 21 Whooping Cranes spent last night (11/17) at Quivira. This 
morning 17 were actually seen taking flight south by 7:30 am, and the remainder 
were also presumed to have left the Refuge. Very strong north winds came in 
overnight and are continuing.

Subject: Bulk Black Oil Sunflower

Good breezy morning KSBIRDers!

Well, the wind shifted late last night finally bringing in our first real blast 
of 

arctic air. Just about time! Which also means that activity at our feeders is
really going to start to pick up!

An agronomist friend of mine contacted me yesterday that he and his kids
and a summer project of growing black oil sunflowers and now he's sitting on
about 25,000 pounds of seed that he grew that he was wondering if I knew
any birders who might be interested in it (He sincerely did not realize that
black oil sunflower was the preferred feeder food!) Anyway, bleow is the
message that he sent to me. It's bulk so you'll need sturdy trash cans or
something to put it in. Doug is a really nice guy and very accomodating.
Please give him a call if you need some! And no, I get nothing out of this deal 

- just trying to match up growers and consumers!

***********
If you know folks that need bulk black oil sunflower seed, we live about 25
min south of Topeka 1/3 mile west of HWY 75.

I have a scale that should work so if they just bring a container, I can weigh 
it 

out.  I'm asking $0.25/lb.

They can either email me a time to pick up seed or call/text me on my cell.
my contact information is below

Subject: Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge 18 November, 2016-Ruddy Shelduck
From: "Bollin III, John J." <BollinJ AT UMKC.EDU>
Date: Fri, 18 Nov 2016 18:19:08 +0000
Mary Nemecek just called me to let me know that she and Mark McKellar are at 
Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge looking at a Ruddy Shelduck. They haven't 
had any close looks at the bird but do have some distant fuzzy photos that help 
to confirm ID. Based on the fact that this bird is not listed on the ABA list 
we are assuming that any ABA area records would have been presumed to be 
escapees from exotic bird collections. At this point they have not been able to 
tell if this bird is banded or not. The bird was first observed on a muskrat 
mound in Pelican Pool. It has moved around as the picture they sent me was of 
the bird in flight but is apparently still in that area. Mary said that Squaw 
Creek is VERY BIRDY today. Based on current weather conditions I would expect 
nothing less than amazing numbers of waterfowl. I wish I had time to make a run 
up there myself (maybe tomorrow).
