Baker Wetlands is still closed and will remain so for sometime, The amount
of construction there has been staggering.It will be posted here as soon as
it opens. You can contact Roger Boyd thru Baker for special permission. It
will be larger and really very nice when it opens.

Had some sprinkles but it was still a good morning for a walk along the Kaw. 
The park is exceptionally green, and the sweet scent of honeysuckle is strong 
in many spots. I listed 43 species. 


Alder Flycatcher (4 calling)
Swainson's Thrush (1 singing)
Spotted Sandpiper (1 calling)

Yellow Warbler (1 singing)
Common Yellowthroat (1 singing)
Prothonotary (2 singing)
Northern Parula  (2 singing)

Cooper's Hawk (1 pursued by Common Grackles nipping at its tail; same scenario 
in the same spot about a week ago) 

Pileated WP (1 active this morning)

Good morning,

At least 2 Lazuli buntings were still present I n the Rocky Ford SFA parking 
area this morning around 8 AM. I found a male and female feeding near the red 
gate just at the entrance to the parking area. 


Good luck!

Water levels at Neosho WA are extremely high, highest I've seen them since the 
07 floods. Not much happening there outside of normal expected species. 


One thing of note has been Least Tern sightings. One individual was seen on 
5-21 flying and feeding.. the individual also landed and rested on some dead 
trees from time to time. 3 individuals were seen 5-25 cruising the main pool. 
That makes 8 total sightings of Least terns at NWA in the 2014-15 time period. 
There have also been two other Neosho Co sightings during that span. One at 
Lake Parsons and one at Erie WTP.

Hi Folks,

I haven't had much to report in Oak Park recently, but today I was surprised to 
see three warbler species in Oak Park. 

  
Redstart female 
Black-throated Green female 
Magnolia male  

Of course that accounts for all of the warblers I saw in Oak Park, 3 different 
birds. Oddly, they were all in one place, a cedar in the southeast meadow. 
These birds were seen in the late afternoon. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Manhattan, Casement Rd., about 1/2 mile s. of Barnes Rd. 12 noon.
There’s a dirt driveway east of Casement where you can park. Flocks of Franklin 
Gulls all along the road, especially in the flooded areas in the middle of the 
corn field. 

I stopped to look and right in front of me along the flooded area were 
sandpipers! I’m sure there were other species; they kept disappearing!

Rain interrupted my morning walk along the Kaw today. After a short walk, Peter 
Grund and I waited under the dense lower story of woods to keep dry for about 
30 minutes. Peter departed and when the sun finally appeared about 20 minutes 
later, the winds increased so I shortened my walk. 


Alder Flycatcher (2 calling)
Empids (3 -likely all Traill's; one did soft peet or peek notes)

Wood Thrush (1 singing; a few passed through BP early this year)

Mourning Warbler (1 singing at north end; did highly varied notes as well as 
its song; I never got a look other than movement in the leaves, but Peter saw 
it pop out once) 

Prothonotary (2 - singing)
Northern Parula (1 singing)

Swainson's Thrushes were absent this morning - they have been scarce for days 
and their apparent departure usually marks the very late stage of the migration 
(flycatchers & stragglers mostly) in these parts. 


Will there be a surprise or two in my last few spring walks in BP?

I had blue birds nesting in a box. The tree swallows took the nest box over and 
built another nest on top of the bluebird nest. The bluebirds moved over to 
another box. Today I noticed a male bluebird on top of the tree swallow nest 
box. I checked the nest and the two eggs that had been it were gone. The tree 
swallows are gone also. Anyone have any ideas. The other problem I've had was I 
only had three martins return this year. A sharp shin got the male and the 
females vacated. Bill Sutton topeka

This morning heading out to the van in the driveway heard something calling
I'd never heard before.  Soon found it in plain view hopping over my head in
an oak.  My first thought was a yellow-rumped but haven't seen one for a
week or two and the call was definitely different, short, buzzy a bit.

 

Got a good look with my binoculars and pretty sure on the black-throated
green warbler id.  Male.  Lifer for me.  Very, very cool.  Lots of activity
in the woods today.

Also had a nice mix of shorebirds in a flooded field.  Video:

Subject: Re: Will lesser prairie-chicken be delisted?

I saw this on KSN as well. Interestingly, much of the hyperbole is pure 
nonsense. As an example in the KSN report, they interviewed some folks that 
were talking about how much of an impact the LPC has on military installations, 
which of course is completely bogus. The listing of this species has little 
impact on any DOD lands, and for those which it would, if any, rest assured, 
DOD hasn't had a problem dealing with T&E species as a result of ESA. In fact, 
DOD lands actually have more T&E species on their lands by proportion of land 
ownership than does the USFWS, DOI, NPS, etc. DOD does a really good job of 
dealing with T&E species, and yes that means they have to spend money (tax 
dollars) on consultations with USFWS, and mitigation, and even at times 
litigation...but DOD always gets their mission done while saving or protecting 
T&E species. And if needed, they could trump ESA, at any time, but as far as 
I'm aware, they've never trumped it (they have statute authority). 


This is a pure underhanded tactic to attack the ESA, the LPC, and play 
political games. They also talked about wind farms not being able to be built 
in western KS. Ironically, were wind farms not the green energy savior? If this 
is still true, than what's wrong with wind farms having to either stay away 
from LPC habitat, or figuring out ways to mitigate...with extensive benefits to 
the LPC? 


The Conservation efforts that took place were far too late, the State of KS, 
waited far too long to address the LPC issue, as did the majority of other 
states within the range, and the resulting Western Governor's consortium and 
their efforts, while noble, should have been attempted 10 yrs prior to 
listing...but as per the norm...State Governments dropped the ball. Now they 
are complaining. KOS and a slew of co-petitioners requested the LPC be listed 
in the State (you can see all of the materials on the KOS Webpage: 
http://ksbirds.org/LPC/LPC_Petition.html) in 2009, our pre-emptive attempt to 
prevent Federal listing, because the State with the largest population would be 
taking charge and moving pro-actively with conservation efforts. But the State 
decided not to list...and believe me, it wasn't for biological reasons, but for 
political reasons...regardless of what anyone wants to admit. There was no way 
the Republican Secretary (KDWP) was going to allow the species to b! 

 e listed within the State...and that's the bottom line...the party line is the 
problem the species faces. Ironically, the ESA came about as a bipartisan 
legislation...apparently, in the 70's we recognized that species were being 
lost at accelerated rates, and we cared. In the 2000's apparently, we don't 
care, or at least the majority of the public still believes in ESA, but the 
Republican partly doesn't. That's the sad reality. The LPC has become a 
political puppet, and unfortunately, I'm afraid, it won't be long before we 
will look to KS as the home of the last "place your name here" the equivalent 
of Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon. Thus, the current proposed delisting 
shouldn't be attached to a DOD bill, but should be brought about as its own 
legislation, argued on its own grounds...bring ESA to the table, not the LPC.

Subject: Will lesser prairie-chicken be delisted?

Hi all, I was reading that the U.S. House of Representatives has passed an 
amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which would delist the 
lesser prairie chicken, and would prevent it from being relisted as endangered 
or vulnerable until at least 2021. I wonder if the Senate is likely to accept 
this amendment. If so, I would think that being attached as an amendment to a 
major funding bill like the National Defense Authorization Act would mean it 
would almost certainly not be vetoed by the President. Looking down the road, 
could this perhaps even lead to allowing hunting of lesser prairie chickens in 
Kansas? --------Ken Kinman Hays, Kansas

Date: Sat, 23 May 2015 13:18:31 -0500
A few items of interest at Quivira this morning, 23 May, as Donnie K and I 
checked several areas 

before the rains hit. We re-located the Black-bellied Whistling Duck, back in 
Unit 63 at the 

previously described location. Deadhorse Grove still had a Swainson's Thrush, 
American Redstart, 

and a Chuck-will's-widow. Still large numbers of Dunlin and Red-necked 
Phalarope (at least 20) 

along NE 170th. Also, Black Rail along NE 170th, and 4 or 5 Bobolink in the 
pasture south of the 

170th/105th junction.

Road condition note: although prior to the rains many of the really sloppy 
areas had dried, as soon as 

the rain started many areas became immediately slimy. With the prolonged rains 
this afternoon, it 

may take a day to dry out a little.

Hi all,
I got a couple of hours of birding in at Wilson Wildlife Area before the rains 
hit. Still lots of shorebirds at Horseshoe Bend and surrounds areas, with best 
birds including 11 Snowy Plovers, 1 Semipalmated Plover, 2500+ White-rumps, a 
couple of hundred each of Semipalmated and Stilt Sandpipers, over 100 Least 
Sandpipers, 2 Pectoral Sandpipers, 1 Baird's Sandpiper, 1 Willet, 7 Dunlin, and 
1 Sanderling. I also had a single Least Tern at the Cedar Creek Boat , a single 
Common Tern at Horseshoe Bend, 32 Black Tern and 5 Forster's Terns.

Date: Sat, 23 May 2015 16:56:52 +0000
It was a pleasant early morning along the Kaw. I walked for about two hours and 
listed 44 species. 


Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (1 - doing it harsh "song" & its Pewee sounding preee 
or tweee notes; this was an un-Burcham-like satisfying observation for the 
calling bird, first hidden in the densely leaved cover, flew in close, landing 
on a dead branch about 25 feet away, just above eye level and sat quietly in 
decent light - I could even see its yellow throat; this bird was operating in 
the east woods near the W junction of the two roads at the north end of the 
park - it was still doing its sweet call there at 9AM.) 


Alder Flycatcher (1 calling on edge of Kaw north of KU boathouse)
Great Crested Flycatcher (8- they're cranking up their notes; watched a pair 
work low together and sit closeby at eye level) 


Warblers
Magnolia - (1 singing in bushes at the SE corner of woods near the E-W road 
south of the KU boat house; it sang there continuously when I arrived & later 
when I passed by) 

Yellow - (1 singing & notes)
Northern Parula (2 singing)
Prothonotary (2 singing)

Pileated WP (1-watched it in early morning work its way up to the top of a dead 
tree, crest illuminated by morning sunlight minutes in gap of west woods at the 
north end of the park; the pair vocalizing flew over near the same location in 
later) 

Cedar Waxwing (several working the same mulberry trees as yesterday, eyeing and 
downing fruit not yet fully ripe. Six of CWs bathed in muddy driveway puddle 
nearby.

I checked the jars - grape and marmalade have the same sugar content - 12 
g per tablespoon. Might be a color thing - or maybe they don't like the 
chunkier texture of the marmalade. Several people have suggested other 
things to try like blackberry or cherry. Maybe I'll try them, too!

Consider sugar content.  I would suspect the marmalade may have less sugar
than the grape jelly.  Birds have far fewer taste buds than humans, and I
think there has been some postulation that when it comes to feeding it may
not be so much about taste as consistency.  While feeder birds will eat a
variety of seeds, one may generally feed Black Oil Sunflower for the fat
content, which equates to energy for birds.

Perhaps someone here on the Listserv far more familiar with bird biology
could weigh in on this.  It may have something to do with taste, but I am
betting that a jelly higher in sugar attracts more birds from an energy and
survival standpoint.

I did a two week taste test comparing grape jelly and orange marmalade. I have two kinds of jelly feeders - the dangling pint canning jar type and some bowls on a tree stump. The hanging jar type is only accessible to orioles and house finches, while the bowls are also host to robins, squirrels, house sparrows, cardinals and starlings. Who knew so many seed-eaters like sweet stuff? The two kinds of jelly were side-by-side in both types of feeders. The grape won hands down. Even the squirrels prefer grape. I was refilling the grape at least once a day. The marmalade just sat there until the rain forced me to empty it out. Twice I saw female orioles sampling it, but they didn't take much. I can't explain it - the grape jelly was the cheapest I could find, while the marmalade was Smuckers. Since the more expensive product is usually the most popular in any situation, I figured they would go for it... but no.

I decided to look a bit closer at the tern I saw today.

 

In this video https://youtu.be/JPua_0lvVN8 I think his body looks gray and
his wingtips look longer than the tail.  Wouldn't that make him a common
tern.  Or maybe it's just the lighting.

 

Advice.

The great crested flycatchers are nest building today in the same nest box
as last year.  It is just so much fun to watch the male follow the female as
she gathers plant material.  Strangely a thrasher was sitting on top of the
box a number of times while the flycatchers were nest building.  The
flickers and flycatchers are nesting within about 10 feet of each other and
seem to be getting along okay.

 

Today I witnessed the flickers carrying out fecal sacks 3 times.  First time
I've seen that.

 

I went to Menoken Borrow Pit this am and found a Forester Tern and at a
nearby field was a late green-winged teal.  Still some shorebirds around
too.

While spraying weeds around my propane tank I noticed a lot of bird droppings 
near the cover for the gages. I suspected that a starling was nesting under it. 
I lifted the cover and found a black snake at least 6 ft long. He had a large 
lump in his stomach. I left him alone. Later I asked my wife to go check the 
propane. She has a suspicious mind and wouldn' do it. Bill Sutton

It was sunny at the start on my daily walk along the Kaw, but clouded over 
quickly. It was still a bit chilly, but the northerly breeze was not strong or 
constant. It was good morning for birding, but was not very birdy; I listed 43 
species. Most of the migrants heard or observed yesterday were apparently 
absent today; there was little migrant song or observable migrant activity. I 
walked with Peter Grund for most of the morning. 


Yellow Warbler (2 - each of us heard 1 singing)
Northern Parula (3 singing)
Prothonotary Warbler (2 & possibly 3 singing)

Spotted Sandpipers (6- observed 4 & heard 2)
Swainson's Thrush (3- 1 singing; 2 made whit notes)
Emped Spec (1)

Red-tailed Hawk (immature; landed nearby & looked & behaved like it was 
recently fledged) 

Ruby-throated Hummingbird (1-chattering & flitting)
Pileated WP (1 calling in early morning)
Warbling Vireo (16 calling)
Red-eyed Vireo (6 calling)

Rains of late have led to another temporary closure of a section of the 
main road on the north side of Little Salt Marsh.  Note that this section 
is closed to vehicles due to high water over the north spillway.  We 
recommend detouring east of Little Salt Marsh from its east side over to 
Raymond Road and continuing north there to 95th Ave, then west back into 
the Refuge.  Travel on perimeter roads on the south end (NE 80th Street, 
NE 130th Avenue, and Salt Marsh Roads, respectively) is not recommended 
due to alternating muddy conditions and loose sand.  The main road between 
Migrants Mile and Little Salt Marsh may also be muddy, as well as portions 
of NE 170th Street north of Big Salt Marsh.  All the above mentioned are 
passable, but slick and messy when freshly rained-upon.

No luck on the Black-bellied Whistling Duck again this morning (22 May), 
but shorebird viewing is still very good along NE 170th Street, and there 
was one breeding-plumage adult Common Tern there among several Forster's 
Terns.

Hi all,
I played hooky today and spent the day at Quivira and Cheyenne Bottoms. It was 
a great morning to be at Quivira, with cool temps, light wind and tons of 
birds. I got a good bird right off with a calling and well-seen Yellow-bellied 
Flycatcher in the trees along Hunter Access Rd, just north of the Rattlesnake 
Creek bridge. I met with Barry Jones and Rachel Laubhan to go into some of the 
units off the beaten path, southeast of the Big Salt Marsh. We did not find the 
Black-bellied Whistling Duck, but some some other good birds, including 350+ 
Redheads in big flocks in a couple of the units. We also had a single 
Ring-necked Duck drake and around 80 ibis. Up on 170th at the Big Salt Marsh, 
we hit it big with a few species of interest. We were surprised to see 45 
Dunlin, 16 Sanderlings, & 18 Red-necked Phalaropes. We had 1 Ruddy Turnstone, 
and lots of Stilt and White-rumped Sandpipers. Barry and Rachel had a Piping 
Plover that I didn't see and I had 16 Black-bellied Plovers after they left. 
Black Terns were very abundant, with hundreds in the area and I did have 4 
Least Terns too. 

If I thought Black Terns were abundant at Quivira, they were super-abundant at 
Cheyenne Bottoms this afternoon! They were seen in every pool and I couldn't 
look up or out without seeing some. I estimated 750, but I'm sure that is low. 
Other good birds at CB included 36 Black-bellied Plovers, 1 Semipalmated 
Plover, 3 Willets, 2 Whimbrels, 28 Hudsonian Godwits, 6 Marbled Godwits, 6 
Sanderlings, 8 Dunlin, and 1 Ruddy Turnstone. Good numbers of White-rumped 
Sandpipers and Stilt Sandpipers were around and I also has a pair of Lesser 
Scaup. 


Beautiful afternoon to be at the marsh!

Subject: Grape vs. Orange
From: Patricia Marlett <pmarlett AT COX.NET>
Date: Thu, 21 May 2015 19:29:55 -0500
I did a two week taste test comparing grape jelly and orange marmalade. I have 
two kinds of jelly feeders - the dangling pint canning jar type and some bowls 
on a tree stump. The hanging jar type is only accessible to orioles and house 
finches, while the bowls are also host to robins, squirrels, house sparrows, 
cardinals and starlings. Who knew so many seed-eaters like sweet stuff? The two 
kinds of jelly were side-by-side in both types of feeders. 


The grape won hands down. Even the squirrels prefer grape. I was refilling the 
grape at least once a day. The marmalade just sat there until the rain forced 
me to empty it out. Twice I saw female orioles sampling it, but they didn't 
take much. 

I can't explain it - the grape jelly was the cheapest I could find, while the 
marmalade was Smuckers. Since the more expensive product is usually the most 
popular in any situation, I figured they would go for it... but no. 


Maybe I'll try again later in the summer to see if their taste change over 
time. But for now it's grape, grape, grape.

The last stop during the Harper Co. Migration Bird Count on May 12 (Tuesday) at 
8:15 pm. was near the old Anthony High School. 


There, we saw several hundred Chimney Swifts flying around it's chimney. We 
watched them for 15 or so minutes, and as the sky darkened they all disappeared 
into the chimney. 


The school has been mostly unused for nearly 40 years. It's successor, 
Chaparral High School, opened in 1972. The Anthony High School likely has the 
largest uncapped abandoned chimney in Harper County. 


I don't recall the details of when I discovered this colony, but I have been 
aware of them for perhaps 10 years. It would be interesting to know how they 
got started. I would guess the flock we saw on Tuesday is a mix of both 
migrating and local birds. The chimney is also used by them in fall by 
migrating birds. This raises the questions of how long they have been here, and 
how far away they came from.

It was a beautiful early morning along the Kaw. I walked for a couple of hours, 
and listed 50 species. There was at least a mild pulse of new migration - 
however it is so leaved out at BP and so hard to see birds (and likely more 
non-singers moving through) that it is hard to judge how big the influx of 
migrants was. The north end of the park was busy in early morning, but I had 
trouble getting my glasses on any of good numbers of small non-singers 
flitting. Peter Grund was there when the sun hit the area, and he said it was 
very active in song at that time; he had a good take. I visited again after him 
but loud lawn mowing in the area made for less than ideal listening conditions 


Cooper's Hawk (1 FOSBP - used be a regular at BP; pursued intensely by two 
tail-biting Common Crackles) 


Warblers
Magnolia (1-Peter heard it on the north side & I listened to it sing on my 
second visit there for 20-25 minutes from 20 feet and never got a good look) 

Mourning (1- Peter heard it in the tangle near the north stream; I heard notes 
earlier in the same area that might have been it) 

American Redstart (2-Peter heard them on the middle E-W gravel road)
Yellow (3 singers)
Northern Parula (2 singers)
Blackpoll (2-3 singers - one 30 yards from the head of the river trail; 1 about 
50 yards north of the KU boat house; and possible 3rd near north stream) 

Common Yellowthroat (1-singing at the north end)
Tennessee (1-2 incomplete songs on north E-W trail; Peter heard two at the 
north end) 

Prothonotary (3 singing)
Chestnut-sided (1 possible or likely [it was not a Yellow] - singing in early 
morning at north end; I saw the bird flit 4 or 5 times but lost it immediately 
each times in leaves where it remained singing) 


Spotted Sandpiper (4)
Cedar Waxwings (2 in Audubon-like postures eating mulberries & being harassed 
by a Robin in what appeared to be a territorial issue) 

Swainson's Thrush (5- a few notes & 1 song)

Subject: No Sighting ~ Wings Over Weston
From: Christine Kline <birdsecretary AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Wed, 20 May 2015 20:49:12 -0500
Dear birders,

 

Wings Over Weston 2015 was a huge success.  With a 70% chance of rain
forecasted for both Friday and Saturday, not one drop of rain fell on either
day.  Even with showers and thunderstorms around us, Wings Over Weston
welcomed 172 fourth graders from four local school districts along with 43
adults and 26 volunteers and chaperones on Friday's school day.  On
Saturday, we welcomed 658 visitors.  We are confident that if we hadn't had
compromising weather all around us, we would have surpassed our 2014
Saturday attendance record of 827.  

 

Wings Over Weston is introducing birds, their migration, and the importance
of conservation of habitat to children, the birders of tomorrow.  Wings Over
Weston is always the 2nd Friday and Saturday of May.  After two years of
very high attendance, we can now claim the largest birding festival in the
state of Missouri.  We are also proud that we have a unique niche -
children.  Wings Over Weston is always free to everyone due to grants,
fundraising, and donations each year. If you would like to see a report on
our progress throughout the years as well as the outreach we continue to do
after the festival, please contact me off list and I will send you a link.
(Wings Over Weston is also on Facebook.)

 

Wings Over Weston is creating the future leaders of conservation!

Agree with everything Gene said except for the inference of a politically based 
LPC listing decision for Ks. If the Secretary had went against the 
recommendation of the scientific review committee as he did with the 
red-bellied snake, then yes it would have been purely political.

I saw this on KSN as well. Interestingly, much of the hyperbole is pure 
nonsense. As an example in the KSN report, they interviewed some folks that 
were talking about how much of an impact the LPC has on military installations, 
which of course is completely bogus. The listing of this species has little 
impact on any DOD lands, and for those which it would, if any, rest assured, 
DOD hasn't had a problem dealing with T&E species as a result of ESA. In fact, 
DOD lands actually have more T&E species on their lands by proportion of land 
ownership than does the USFWS, DOI, NPS, etc. DOD does a really good job of 
dealing with T&E species, and yes that means they have to spend money (tax 
dollars) on consultations with USFWS, and mitigation, and even at times 
litigation...but DOD always gets their mission done while saving or protecting 
T&E species. And if needed, they could trump ESA, at any time, but as far as 
I'm aware, they've never trumped it (they have statute authority). 


This is a pure underhanded tactic to attack the ESA, the LPC, and play 
political games. They also talked about wind farms not being able to be built 
in western KS. Ironically, were wind farms not the green energy savior? If this 
is still true, than what's wrong with wind farms having to either stay away 
from LPC habitat, or figuring out ways to mitigate...with extensive benefits to 
the LPC? 


The Conservation efforts that took place were far too late, the State of KS, 
waited far too long to address the LPC issue, as did the majority of other 
states within the range, and the resulting Western Governor's consortium and 
their efforts, while noble, should have been attempted 10 yrs prior to 
listing...but as per the norm...State Governments dropped the ball. Now they 
are complaining. KOS and a slew of co-petitioners requested the LPC be listed 
in the State (you can see all of the materials on the KOS Webpage: 
http://ksbirds.org/LPC/LPC_Petition.html) in 2009, our pre-emptive attempt to 
prevent Federal listing, because the State with the largest population would be 
taking charge and moving pro-actively with conservation efforts. But the State 
decided not to list...and believe me, it wasn't for biological reasons, but for 
political reasons...regardless of what anyone wants to admit. There was no way 
the Republican Secretary (KDWP) was going to allow the species to b! 

e listed within the State...and that's the bottom line...the party line is the 
problem the species faces. Ironically, the ESA came about as a bipartisan 
legislation...apparently, in the 70's we recognized that species were being 
lost at accelerated rates, and we cared. In the 2000's apparently, we don't 
care, or at least the majority of the public still believes in ESA, but the 
Republican partly doesn't. That's the sad reality. The LPC has become a 
political puppet, and unfortunately, I'm afraid, it won't be long before we 
will look to KS as the home of the last "place your name here" the equivalent 
of Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon. Thus, the current proposed delisting 
shouldn't be attached to a DOD bill, but should be brought about as its own 
legislation, argued on its own grounds...bring ESA to the table, not the LPC.

Hi all, I was reading that the U.S. House of Representatives has passed an 
amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which would delist the 
lesser prairie chicken, and would prevent it from being relisted as endangered 
or vulnerable until at least 2021. I wonder if the Senate is likely to accept 
this amendment. If so, I would think that being attached as an amendment to a 
major funding bill like the National Defense Authorization Act would mean it 
would almost certainly not be vetoed by the President. Looking down the road, 
could this perhaps even lead to allowing hunting of lesser prairie chickens in 
Kansas? --------Ken Kinman Hays, Kansas

It was chilly and wet, with a NE breeze, on my early morning walk along the 
Kaw. I listed 35 species. 


Alder Flycatcher (1-called once NW of the KU boathouse)
Swainson's Thrush (8- 5 were together on the E-W gravel path south of the KU 
boathouse) 

Spotted Sandpiper (3 were working together on a patch of debris floating near 
the bank of the Kaw; pretty birds they are) 

Blue-headed Vireo (1 singing at north end of the park)

Common Yellowthroat (1 north end; still hanging)
Northern Parula (1 singer)

Pileated Woodpecker (1 still active)
Eastern Kingbird (2 pairs twittering, flitting, & working along the Kaw)

The walks and lists get shorter...

I saw this on KSN as well. Interestingly, much of the hyperbole is pure 
nonsense. As an example in the KSN report, they interviewed some folks that 
were talking about how much of an impact the LPC has on military installations, 
which of course is completely bogus. The listing of this species has little 
impact on any DOD lands, and for those which it would, if any, rest assured, 
DOD hasn't had a problem dealing with T&E species as a result of ESA. In fact, 
DOD lands actually have more T&E species on their lands by proportion of land 
ownership than does the USFWS, DOI, NPS, etc. DOD does a really good job of 
dealing with T&E species, and yes that means they have to spend money (tax 
dollars) on consultations with USFWS, and mitigation, and even at times 
litigation...but DOD always gets their mission done while saving or protecting 
T&E species. And if needed, they could trump ESA, at any time, but as far as 
I'm aware, they've never trumped it (they have statute authority). 


This is a pure underhanded tactic to attack the ESA, the LPC, and play 
political games. They also talked about wind farms not being able to be built 
in western KS. Ironically, were wind farms not the green energy savior? If this 
is still true, than what's wrong with wind farms having to either stay away 
from LPC habitat, or figuring out ways to mitigate...with extensive benefits to 
the LPC? 


The Conservation efforts that took place were far too late, the State of KS, 
waited far too long to address the LPC issue, as did the majority of other 
states within the range, and the resulting Western Governor's consortium and 
their efforts, while noble, should have been attempted 10 yrs prior to 
listing...but as per the norm...State Governments dropped the ball. Now they 
are complaining. KOS and a slew of co-petitioners requested the LPC be listed 
in the State (you can see all of the materials on the KOS Webpage: 
http://ksbirds.org/LPC/LPC_Petition.html) in 2009, our pre-emptive attempt to 
prevent Federal listing, because the State with the largest population would be 
taking charge and moving pro-actively with conservation efforts. But the State 
decided not to list...and believe me, it wasn't for biological reasons, but for 
political reasons...regardless of what anyone wants to admit. There was no way 
the Republican Secretary (KDWP) was going to allow the species to b! 

 e listed within the State...and that's the bottom line...the party line is the 
problem the species faces. Ironically, the ESA came about as a bipartisan 
legislation...apparently, in the 70's we recognized that species were being 
lost at accelerated rates, and we cared. In the 2000's apparently, we don't 
care, or at least the majority of the public still believes in ESA, but the 
Republican partly doesn't. That's the sad reality. The LPC has become a 
political puppet, and unfortunately, I'm afraid, it won't be long before we 
will look to KS as the home of the last "place your name here" the equivalent 
of Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon. Thus, the current proposed delisting 
shouldn't be attached to a DOD bill, but should be brought about as its own 
legislation, argued on its own grounds...bring ESA to the table, not the LPC.

On Friday May 15 Roger and Jan Boyd did the Baker Wetlands, Lawrence Survey
on an ATV with stops. They found 100 species during their fo0ur and one
half hour survey.

They found several waterfowl including 7 Lesser Scaup. This is getting late
for migrating scaup. Lesser Scaup have been reported on every survey since
April 4. These were seen in the new east area within 200 yards.

Two Little Blue Heron were observed. in recent years Little Blues have
nested in Lawrence and often feed in Baker Wetlands. This year there seem
to be fewer so far.

A Northern Harrier was observed twice within one hundred yards. This is
getting somewhat late although the 'Birds of Kansas' book notes they
migrate through May.

There were 35 Spotted Sandpipers seen.  These were seen mostly in the new
east area where most of the edges can be seen easily because this has been
newly created.

Twenty-six Baird's Sandpipers were seen. These were carefully compared with
the twelve Whitr-rumped Sandpipers.

There were 168 Semipalmated Sandpipers seen.

Even though there were 100 species there was nothing else that unusual. The
complete list is at the link below.

A Black-bellied Whistling Duck was observed and photographed this morning 
(19 May) on Unit 63 in Quivira's north end.  As of late morning, it was 
still present.  This unit is located along the south side of NE 140th St., 
just west of the Rattlesnake Creek bridge (this would be about halfway 
between the NE 140th Ave junction and the start of the Wildlife Drive; the 
unit is difficult to see from the road due to its levee).  Visitors can 
access this unit on foot by going over the gate or H-brace.  The duck was 
in the unit's northeast corner.

It was less windy, during my early morning walk along the Kaw, but it was 
"summer-like" (except for the chilly temperatures). I listed just 38 species, 
the least on a longer walk since mid-April. Hopefully, it became a bit more 
active after the day began to warm. 


Swainson's Thrush (5- still song and notes)

Warblers (first time I did not hear one of the three Prothonotaries since their 
arrival in early to mid-April; I expect they are still around) 

Common Yellowthroat (1 a few notes; lurking in bush on north stream; heard 
another sound briefly in this spot & hoped to find a Mourning, but I failed) 

Northern Parula (2 singers in same locations along the river trail; will they 
remain?) 


Warbling Vireo (17 singers - kings of Burcham Park)
Red-eyed Vireo (5 singers)
Great-crested Flycatcher (6 singers - watched one on a low branch show off and 
then swallow a huge insect). 

Baltimore Oriole (6 singers)
Indigo Bunting (5 singers & saw one female)
Pileated WP (1 calling)
Cedar Waxwings (30 -40 - high pitched symphony)

The migration has wound down quickly, but a few stragglers and usually late 
species may surprise and please.

Hi Folks,

I walked Oak Park many hours today and found 1 warbler. It was a good one, a 
male Magnolia my FOS. I'm sure there are more around, but I didn't see them. 
Many Vireos and Flycatchers. I did see around 10 different Ruby-throated 
hummingbirds. One was feeding at one of the remaining honeysuckle bushes. I 
don't think we are going to see many more warbler species. Obviously, the 
warbler volume is very low at this time with most warblers North of us. 
Hopefully, a few more may visit Oak Park. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Nate & I just spent 23 hours operating out of Great Bend: Quivira twice, 
Cheyenne Bottoms & Larned. 


Results:

145 species (6 new Kansas birds, 21 year birds)

32 shorebird species (we've birded together for 17 years, best total we've ever 
experienced), including Red Knot, Ruddy Turnstones (one on road), three 
Whimbrels, Piping Plover, Hudsonian Godwit, Marbled Godwit hundreds of 
dowitchers & many others 


Eight herons including both bitterns, both night herons, all egrets

~30 ibises, including one Glossy

Five Least Terns

12 blackbirds

Nate heard King Rail, also saw a prairie chicken briefly at the prairie dog 
field on 140th 


But there were also significant misses: Black Rail, Neotropic Cormorant, Common 
Poorwill, Roadrunner. 


And, of course, we were a little light on warblers:)

If you can rearrange your schedule, get there. Thousands of shorebirds to 
enjoy! 


(Not to mention photographic opportunities, Nate took nearly 800, many of 
"right in front of you" birds)

Hi all,
I made an hour-long drive through the Big Salt Marsh at Quivira early this 
morning. The shift in wind to a northerly direction probably caused a shift in 
area for shorebird usage from yesterday's reports as there were lots of birds 
close to the road on the south side of 170th. I didn't spend a lot of time 
looking as I was trying to help a stranded motorist, but did see singles of 
Ruddy Turnstone, Sanderling and Pectoral Sandpiper. Still lots of Stilt and 
White-rumped Sandpipers, plus good numbers of Wilson's Phalaropes. Smaller 
numbers of the expected peeps and other typical stuff. I had several Redheads 
and a pair of Lesser Scaup. Highlights were probably the 300+ Black Terns and 
six Least Terns.

There was a stiff north wind blowing on my morning's walk along the Kaw. I 
listed 41 one species, the lowest total in weeks. The heavy winds probably kept 
migrants that came in after the storm down and quiet. But the numbers of 
migrants seem down significantly in this spot. Perhaps there will be more 
action when the wind diminishes. 


Warblers (first day that I did not hear a Tennessee Warbler in weeks)
Magnolia (2 or 3 - Peter Grund heard two & I heard a possible third)
American Redstart (1-Peter saw it)
Yellow (1 singing)
Northern Parula (2 singing)
Prothonotary ( 2 singing)

Spotted Sandpiper (1)
Swainson's Thrush (5 - diminished numbers)
White-eyed Vireo (1 singing on north end of the park)

The Red-eyed Vireo & Warbling Vireo's were singing at their usual posts as were 
many other usual suspects.

I checked all the nest boxes at Burnett's mound and the results are as
follows.  

Bluebird               6

Burned up            3

Chickadee           1

Stolen                   1

House Sparrow  3

House Wren        1

Empty                   4

Paper Wasp        6

Tree Swallow      9

 

I'm amazed at the number of tree swallows there.  Last year there were 3
boxes with tree swallows.  The other numbers are comparable to last year,
Burnett's mound is not near water and it is dry uploads.

 

In my yard the great crested flycatchers are inspecting nest boxes.  I saw
one go in the nest box they used last year.  That box is about 10 feet from
the flickers.  They seem to be getting along okay so far.  Yesterday I saw
both flycatcher peering in the flicker box and then the flicker poked its
head out.

 

The starlings are still coming to nest and I trapped two more this morning.

 

The brown thrasher is loving the home made suet. First year I've seen that.

I spent this final weekend of the school year the same way I've spent the
same weekend in 2014 and 2013, by starting early with a good hike in
Hamilton County! I guess 3 times makes a tradition. I quite enjoy this
county although it is not an easy one and not for the faint of heart. I
also birded in even tougher counties, Stanton and Grant, to round out the
day. I had, simply put, a fantastic time. I love that countryside for the
birds and for everything else involved in the experience.

*Hamilton Co. - 91 species*

Green Heron - 1 along Ark River near Syracuse
SNOWY PLOVER - 1 at a slop pit pond at rural feedyard in sw part of the
county
Forester's Tern - 1 at Sam's Pond
Western Grebe - 1 at Sam's Pond
Osprey - 1 at Sam's Pond
Scaled Quail - at 2 reliable locations, Klotz Sand near Syracuse and hay
bales near Coolidge
White-winged Dove - 1 in Syracuse
Red-bellied Woodpecker - 2 along Ark River near Syracuse
Western Wood-Pewee - 1 singing along Ark River near Syracuse... several
other Pewee sp, including one that visually looked good for Eastern but who
knows....
Olive-sided Flycatcher - 1 along Ark River
Yellow-breasted Chat & Common Yellowthroat - many on territory along Ark
River near Syracuse
Raven sp. - 1 along Hwy 50 near Coolidge, probably Common
Western Tanager - 1 at K-27 Park in Syracuse
Black-headed Grosbeak - 4 at K-27 Park
Rose-breasted Grosbeak - 1 at K-27 Park
Indigo/Lazuli/Painted Bunting - 4/1/1... all at K-27 Park
Dickcissel - 2 flyovers while hiking along Ark River

*Stanton Co. - 57 species*

Virtually no migrant passerines! Still a very difficult county for me,
sandwiched in between Morton and Hamilton, but I'll get over the century
mark eventually.

Wild Turkey - 2 along Bear Creek
Red-necked Phalarope - 1 at Johnson City WTP
Black Tern - 1 at Johnson City WTP
White-winged Dove - 1 in Johnson City
Olive-sided Flycatcher - 1 along Bear Creek
Rock Wren - 1 along Bear Creek

*Grant Co. - 58 species*

DC Cormorant - 1 at Frazier Park
BN Stilt - 2 at Ulysses WTP
Red-necked Phalarope - 2 at Ulysses WTP
Yellow-breasted Chat - 1 at Frazier Park
Black-headed Grosbeak - 1 at Frazier Park


Cassin's Sparrows were plentiful in all counties. Lark Buntings were

I am totally rejuvenated,

Subject: Wichita Audubon program and silent Auction this coming Tuesday and brief Quivira report.
From: Pete Janzen <pete.janzen AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Sun, 17 May 2015 18:21:03 -0500
I may have posted this already...info on our WAS program for this coming 
Tuesday.  Also please note that we are having a SIlent Auction to raise 
money for WAS at this program.  Many but not all of the items are books 
and other artifacts that were owned by the late Dr. Walker Butin, who 
was one of the charter members of Wichita Audubon.  He had an impressive 
library of bird books.  Other members have also donated items for the 
Silent Auction.


*MAY 19, TUESDAY, 7:00 p.m. PROGRAM AT THE GREAT PLAINS NATURE CENTER*
A History of the 'Purple Martin Capital of Kansas', by Andrew Burnett.
The program will encompass the history behind Parsons becoming the 
Purple Martin capital as well as the rise and fall from a 400 pair 
colony in 1994 to 40 pairs in 2013. Andrew will cover what is being done 
to reestablish and regrow the community's martin population. Martin 
biology and best martin landlord practices will also be covered. Andrew 
is a member of the Purple Martin Conservation Assocation, SE Kansas 
Audubon Society and KOS. He manages the Parsons public martin colony as 
well as his own.

I went to Quivira today and it seemed like a lot of shorebirds had left 
with the south winds based on reports from a day ot three back. There 
were still at least two Dunlins, 1 Sanderling and 1 Whimbrel. A single 
Black Rail was calling well away north from the marsh road. I heard a 
Least Bittern in that big marsh east of the wildlife drive, where you 
have to climb the metal pipe gate to get to the top of the levee. On the 
way back I took a brief walk through Sand Hills State Park near 
Hutchinson. This has been a reliable place for Yellow-breasted Chat over 
the years and I found one in short order. It was doing that wacky 
display flight and was still at it when I headed back to the car. Those 
guys are hilarious.

Subject: Warbler Walk, Wichita
From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>
Date: Sun, 17 May 2015 09:33:16 -0500
Hi Folks,

About 15 to 20 intrepid souls braved the light rain and drizzle to walk Oak 
Park on Saturday morning looking for warblers. As it has been noted the last 
week not many were found. Notable was the male Redstart, some times singing, 
that gave us good looks. Red-eyed vireos were singing all over the park, along 
with Carolina wrens House wrens, Chickadees and Cardinals. Ruby-throated 
hummingbirds were zipping around and we even had a male posing for us in a rare 
strip of sunlight, up on a thin bare tree twig. A Barred owl showed itself up 
high in one of large Burr oak trees, easily seen above the main road through 
the park. Later to move away, shying from the intense scrutiny. Kevin heard a 
Cuckoo, which we couldn't see, Oak Park is very thick this year. Except for wet 
pants legs and soggy shoes (my water proof shoes are still drying out) it was a 
fun outing even without a lot of Warblers. 


We got over 3 inches of rain around and in Oak Park yesterday.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

I went to Burcham Park early this morning simply to see if the Kaw was over its 
banks - it was high, but not over. KU graduation day responsibilities prevented 
my usual longer walk this morning, but I could not resist a 20 minute visit to 
the recently active north side of the park and, despite southerly strong winds, 
I heard a few birds. 


Yellow-bellied Flycatcher - (FOS1 doing its harsh two note "song" followed a 
another note; was in low story Tree vines on the road north or of KU boathouse 
- right after the turn west). I have had it in that area other years. 


Alder Flycatcher (1 - a few notes in north edge of the park in the west 
thicket) 

Northern Waterthrush (1 still singing in the same spot for a week; near the 
Alder) 

Wood Thrush (1 a few notes - near the NWT)
Blackpoll Warbler (1 singing across from the YBF)

Otherwise a few of the usual suspects.
