Looks like the starlings are beginning to look for nesting sites.  I trapped
my first of year starling in a nest box trap today.  If interested in
knowing how I trap starlings, see:
http://www.kansasnativeplants.com/yard_birds_europeanstarling.php

 

Backyard was full of cedar waxwings and robins.  Saw one partially
leuscistic robin today.  No pictures, but had white spots all over his head.

 

Bluebirds are eating a ton of dried meal worms.

I think Peregrine Falcons were called Duck Hawks back in that day. My
personal favorite is a bird John Burroughs called a "high hole". Ya-hoo to
the first person who can tell me what the ID of that bird is...

Subject: Mute Swan Report Form
From: Chuck & Jaye Otte <otte2 AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2015 21:16:33 -0600
Good evening KSBirders!

Mute Swans are not native to North America but have become established in 
several parts of the United States and are generally considered to be a 
nuisance to native waterfowl because of their aggressive tendencies. 

They also pose a problem for Bird Records Committee, at least in the central 
US, as most of the ones seen are escaped from parks or from waterfowl 
fancier's collections. Since the Kansas Bird Records committee doesn't 
review Mute Swan records, because no one has proven that any of the Mute 
Swans seen in Kansas were from known wild breeding pairs, their sightings 
sort of "drop through the cracks."

While many of us feel that Mute Swans may be a problem if they get 
established, no one really knows how many are showing up in the state. To 
address that issue we have developed an online Mute Swan report form. We 
don't want reports on "captive" Mute Swans that are routinely found in parks 
or zoos and appear to be sedantary. What we want to know about are the 
ones showing up at reservoirs, rivers, and other locations where they aren't 
"normally" seen. 

The form is located at: http://www.ksbirds.org/MuteSwanReport.html and 
contains 20 questions that you should be able to answer in about 2 or 3 
minutes. The questions are simple - when did you see it, where did you see 
it, how many adults and immatures, who are you, what is your contact 
information and have you seen these swans in this location before. The form 
is linked to the bottom of the ksbirds.org home page. If you have any 
questions about this little project, let me know!!

Chuck

OK. I'll bite. I grew up in Kansas but what birding I do is mostly in 
Mississippi where I live. So I see different birds. My question: What is a 
Marsh Hawk? Does it have another name?

Subject: Hawk Aliases (Common Names)
From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>
Date: Sun, 25 Jan 2015 10:50:19 -0600
Hi Folks,

Dick Burkepile brings up a interesting typic. Common names like, Marsh Hawk 
(Northern Harrier), Chicken Hawk (Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper's Hawk or 
Sharp-shinned Hawk), Pigeon Hawk (Merlin Falcon), Sparrow Hawk (American 
Kestrel) and I'm sure others I have forgotten. When I was growing up in 
Northern Illinois, before I ever knew anyone who owned a bird book, those were 
the names people called some of the common hawks. Now, every now and then 
someone uses their common name, like Marsh Hawk, and I have to go to the 
internet and look the name up, as none of my many bird books reference the 
common names anymore. 


I do remember we called the Turkey Vulture a Buzzard.

That reminds me, the other day when I was going out to Lake Cheney, I scared up 
a Kestrel (Sparrow Hawk) from the ditch along the road. It was carrying a mouse 
that was very big for the small Kestrel. Flying along just ahead of me, to the 
right in the ditch, the Kestrel was doing all it could to remain airborne with 
that heavy load, as it was flapping it's wings as fast as it could, barely 
skimming along the top of the weeds in the ditch. I lost sight of it as it 
barred to the right, climbing up slightly, just cleared a fence and disappeared 
down into a open field along the highway. I wish I had a video of that, the 
slow motion would have been very interesting. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

You may have only one or two siskins at your feeders and if that is so, they
are all in my yard in Winfield. Yesterday I banded 55 in one hour. I find
that when siskins move into the feeders, the goldfinches tend to depart. I
guess they destroy the neighborhood. Siskins tend to be more aggressive than
goldfinches. I know some feeders that don't have siskins have had their
goldfinch numbers reduced. We shall see if they return with colder weather.

The eagle pair west of Wathena is now nesting. The female was on the nest this

I'm planning to visit Big Bend in April.  Any other birders headed there 
this spring?  Please reply off list.

I've counted 19 Pine Siskins, and 20 American Gold Finches at my nyjer 
feeder and feeding trays.  Our ponds are nearly free of ice so I'm 
looking forward to more species soon!

I heard of a report of swans in western Harvey county near Burrton 
recently, and Common Redpoll in Oxford, KS, but I was unable to confirm 
either.

Last Saturday I had a Black Duck among the hundreds of Mallards on Tuttle Creek 
Reservoir. Also a few widgeon and pintail giving a glimpse of early spring 
movement. 

But the most interesting observation of the weekend was watching an adult Bald 
Eagle attack and eventually kill a Canada Goose. There was an opening in the 
ice and with the naked eye I noticed tremendous thrashing around (first fearing 
that it was a human). The goose pulled the eagle under the water several times 
with maybe 60-80 percent of the eagle under water for much of the time. For a 
few brief moments only the eagle's head was above the water. I thought at some 
points that the goose might actually drown the eagle. Eventually the eagle was 
able to drag the goose (still barely alive) on and across the ice leaving a 
trail of blood from the edge of the open water. What was also amazing to me is 
that gradually over the next 30 minutes eagles started arriving from who knows 
where. No other eagles were visible when this all started. Eventually there 
were 13 eagles on the ice sharing and/or fighting over the goose carcass. It is 
fascinating that these other eagles were able to detect this goose kill from 
apparently a great distance. One reason why watching birds never gets old - 
there is always something new to witness. - Ted

All,
Rather than a separate Winter Bird Feeder Survey for Kansas, our agency is 
promoting the Cornell Backyard Bird Count. Check out the link below for more 
information on how/when to participate.

 Kansas birds, joining the Kansas Ornithological Society is a great decision. 

    I joined about the time I started actually looking at birds in Kansas. I
   have learned so much from KOS, KOS members, and KOS events. I can't imagine

Wichita Audubon has a Red Hills trip planned for Saturday and all of a 
sudden there is about an inch of snow forecast for the day. Trip 
scheduled to leave the Lowe's parking lot at 6 am Saturday. I guess I'll 
see who shows up and we will make a decision then about whether to 
proceed. Who knows how the forecast will change between then and now.

Hopefully more discerning birders will be able to make a positive ID from a

Mississippi where I live. So I see different birds. My question: What is a

on Yancey the first sight was maybe the best. About 6-7 Marsh Hawks could
be seen mobbing what turned out to be an adult Peregrine falcon sitting on
a hedge post. I think Nick Varvel got some video. I got several pics. Going
on south I ran into Nick, Mick McHugh, and the rest of the crew, sorry guys

Hi Folks,

I spent a couple of hours in Oak Park today. The weather was great. Nothing 
unusual except for the large numbers of Robins and the Brown Thrasher. It is 
rare to see a Brown Thrasher this time of year. But, with a 60 degree 
temperature it probably thought it was spring. 

 
Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

At 10:30 this morning Rita Alexander and I found the Lapland Longspurs in the 
same area as reported yesterday by Mick McHugh (215th & Antioch Rd), but there 
were at least 80 to 85 birds today. About 20 minutes after we arrived, most of 
them (about 75 birds) took off and spiraled high into the air until they 
disappeared from sight. We checked the fields between Moonlight and Gardner 
roads on 143th Street earlier in the morning and found a lot of meadowlarks 
(including one singing Western) and Horned Larks, but no longspurs there today. 
(Jeff Witters passed by and said he had heard a couple nearby, though.) In a 
little patch of woods at the corner of 143th & Gardner we found a 
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Red-breasted Nuthatch along with a nice assortment 
of sparrows, and on a pond just north of 183rd Street in the Spring Hill area 
we saw 14 Trumpeter Swans. All records are on eBird.

Subject: Very large flock of Blackbirds
From: Don and Linda Mallonee <czrtail69 AT COX.NET>
Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2015 21:22:26 -0600
I don't have anything dramatic to report like a Peregrine but at dusk or 
about 5:45pm each evening there is an enormous flock of Blackbirds at 
13th and Tyler RD.  They seem to gather on the power lines then settle 
into the trees around the Wesley emergency center and Dillons.  Tonight 
there were several hundred even on the tarmac of the parking lot as well 
as the roof of Dillons.  The thing I find a bit surprising is the large 
number of Grackles.  Some seem regular size, but they may be females of 
the Great Tail Grackles.  Hard to tell when looking up. There is a huge 
number of the big guys there. It seems strange to see them in January.  
The Starlings and Cowbirds have usually made it to the trees by the time 
we pass by, but the Grackles are lined up on the powerlines.  In the 
past, Starlings and Cowbirds have lined up on the powerlines at 21st and 
Tyler.

Subject: LaFarge Peregrine
From: Pete Janzen <pete.janzen AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2015 19:35:53 -0600
I was able to spend the last 30 minutes of daylight at LaFarge and was 
rewarded with great looks at an immature Peregrine Falcon perched on the 
pipe boom that crosses the lake.  I believe it was of the tundrius 
subspecies.  Paul Griffin showed up at just the right time and got to 
see it before it flew off to the southeast. Spending the night downtown 
perhaps?  There are a handful of other winter records from this area for 
Peregrines but it is always an event.  As I was driving up to the usual 
vantage point I saw a lot of gulls swirling around in the air and I 
suspect the falcon had just made a pass at the gull congregation.  Also 
1 and maybe 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls.  As I was northbound on West St 
at the LaFarge plant a large gull flew by with some Ring-bills.  
Possibly a Glaucous but it was almost dark and I didn't attempt to 
reverse course and verify that.

Subject: Possible Goshawk near Townwest in Wichita Jan. 23, 2015
From: ok_forbs <ok_forbs AT ZOHO.COM>
Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:49:45 -0600
Greetings,
While leaving Townwest using the North East exit around 3:00 pm I noticed a 
large hawk in a deciduous tree sitting in plain sight. It was only 35 or so 
feet from the car. My first impression (without binoculars) was that it was a 
Goshawk; because of it's large size. I was only able to look at it a second or 
two with binoculars before it flew. The underparts were streaked. The eyes were 
light, and it appeared to have a whitish line above the eye. 


Immature accipiters are nicely illustrated in "Hawks" by Clark and Wheeler '87, 
Plate 7. 



Most likely this is a large immature puffed up female Coopers. But, if I am 
correct about the light line above the eye, then it has to be a Goshawk. 
However, the habitat is terrible for a Goshawk. I even wonder if there are any 
urban records for this species in Kansas. 





Bird Angry.

There was a Glaucous Gull at LaFarge sandpits in Wichita at sundown on 
Thursday. Still a Lesser Black-backed as well. Some gulls were quite 
viewable that were loafing around on the sand pipe boom. Many were 
further out and in the fading light I couldn't pick out any other 
zooties. Tons of Common Mergs and Common Goldeneye also.

From: Steve Seibel <sseibel999 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 22 Jan 2015 06:13:24 -0800
Sunday January 18 I spotted a couple of Merlins in Wichita.  I was
walking in Schweiter park in the AM and watched one for many minutes,
and then had a similar experience in the afternoon in Chapin park.  In
the latter case I got a good video when it finally flew, with nice
sharp frames of the take-off wingbeats.

I've also made several visits this month to observe the leucistic
Red-tailed hawk near Maize, that has wintered in the area for many
years now (first spotted Jan 1 2009), with interesting plumage changes
year to year in the early years.  It's been nearly all white for
several years now, with a faint red wash to the tail feathers, and a
few black feathers here and there on the body.

Monday I checked out, and found, a snowy owl in Butler County.  Yeah I know,
I'd like to give an exact location but we've all been in this position of
promising not to publicize the exact location because the local landowner
doesn't want us crazy birders descending on the area.  It was moving around
a bit and I have not been back to look for it.  But, we've got a least one
in the area.

Subject: Great Backyard Bird Count
From: Chuck & Jaye Otte <otte2 AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 20 Jan 2015 20:43:05 -0600
Good evening KSBIRDers!

I hope you've been able to get out and enjoy some of the fine weather we've 
been having the past few days and I hope that your 2015 bird list is off to a 
good start!

In years gone by (including 2014) Kansas backyard birders could participate 
in a Kansas Feeder Watch program, recording birds seen at their feeders 
over a several day span. Information has been forwarded to me that KDWPT 
will no longer be collecting that data and a visit to their Kansas Winter Bird 
Feeder Survey web page confirms that. 

If you have been a participant in that project, they, and I, encourage you 
instead to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) that is 
handled by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: http://gbbc.birdcount.org/ The 
survey period is February 13 - 16. Details and registration can be done at 
that website.

Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Claudia Vines, and Martha Long surveyed Baker
Wetlands, Lawrence, Kansas. They found 46 species which is twice the number
from a year ago when we surveyed only the new area. It was much what we are
beginning to expect.

They observed a flock of Common Mergansers. And they had a Merlin.
Ebird did not like the over 100 Mourning Doves and the 13 Savannah Sparrows.
Oh well.

Hopefully the list below is the correct one.

Hi Folks,

Does anyone of the experienced bird counters out there, happened to know how 
many Snow Geese there are in about a square mile. Today (sunday) there was a 
huge group of Snow geese, along with some Ross's, in the SE corner of Lake 
Cheney. I attempted to make a count, but was overwhelmed with the vastness of 
the area they covered. Later, I saw them take flight from across the lake, then 
return and land in the same spot. I wouldn't be surprised if there were at 
least 100,000 in the air, and still a whole bunch on the ice. 


I must have looked at 1000 gulls today and didn't see any special ones. Of 
course, there were a lot more than that, to far away to id. 


Lake Cheney is warming up, with about half still covered with ice.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

there's 

    at least one more roaming around e. Kansas. It seems just about every body

 I found nothing rare anywhere, but was surprised by a few things, especially 

    the multiple Red-shouldered Hawks that I saw in Anderson, Coffey and Lyon
    Counties. Other notables included a Winter Wren in extreme NW Lyon County
    and a very ambitious Merlin that was apparently hunting Mallards (!!!!) in

    take any of the giant prey, but it seemed dead serious in the pursuit of
   them. [...]

I saw a Golden Eagle in Coffey County on 16 January, so there's at least one
more roaming around e. Kansas.  

It seems just about every body of water, large or small, was frozen in
east-central Kansas late last week.  I found nothing rare anywhere, but was
surprised by a few things, especially the multiple Red-shouldered Hawks that
I saw in Anderson, Coffey and Lyon Counties.  Other notables included a
Winter Wren in extreme NW Lyon County and a very ambitious Merlin that was
apparently hunting Mallards (!!!!) in extreme SE Morris County yesterday, 17
January.  I didn't witness the Merlin take any of the giant prey, but it
seemed dead serious in the pursuit of them.

I spent the last hour of the day at LaFarge Sandpits in NW Wichita. 
There were some avid waterfowl hunters at the west edge of the south 
pond and it was keeping birds skittish.  I just had the usual mid-winter 
waterfowl on the south lake.  I was leaving and noticed a number of 
gulls were congregating at the edge of the ice shelf along the shore at 
SE corner of the north lake.  I could just see over the top of the weeds 
and dirt while standing on the shoulder of West. St, sort of in front of 
the house just south of the plant.  Anyway in this flock was a 2d winter 
Lesser Black-backed Gull and a 1st winter Thayer's that was way out on 
the pale end of the color spectrum.  So it worth a trip out there for sure.

Took advantage of the gorgeous weather to start an Atchison County list today. 
Hit the state fishing lake and Warnock Lake with a quick swing through the 
Benedictine Bottoms WA in between. Had 37 species for the day, which is pretty 
good for me. Seven woodpecker species seen at the state lake. About 50% open 
water at Warnock Lake with ruddy ducks, a few ring-necked ducks and common 
goldeneye, and 2 greater white fronts scattered among the hundreds of Canadas 
and mallards. 


The International Forest of Friendship by Warnock was a nice bonus.

Misses, didn't see any finches or wrens.

I was trying to turn it into a Purple Finch, but it didn't quite fit.  After 
it left, I wondered about Cassin's and from what I observed, it was a good 
fit with the bird I saw.  I hope to get another look.

One thing I noticed was that it was using the sunflower feeder in a 
different way than the House Finches.  They eat from the tray, but this bird 
was pulling seeds through the mesh.  I have no idea if that is an indicator 
or not.

Subject: Long-eared owl and Smith's longspur
From: Carol Morgan <crxmorgan AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 17 Jan 2015 15:14:53 -0600
Sixteen members of the Topeka Audubon Society set out this morning to Lyon 
County with target species of long-eared owl and Smith's longspur in mind.  
We arrived at Lyon State Fishing Lake at about 8:30am in mild temperatures 
and little wind.  The lake was completely frozen and there was no waterfowl 
on the ice, but some Canadas, snow geese and mallards flew overhead.  We 
quietly explored the cedar forest without finding owls.  Luckily, there 
were three K-State students exploring at the same time and Jonathan found 
one cooperative long-eared owl.   We kept a respectful distance while the 
photographers snapped many photos and the rest of us admired the beautiful 
bird. 

Next we headed south to the Smith's longspur field.  The wind had picked 
up.  We walked across the field without scaring up much of anything, but we 
could hear faint call notes.  Finally, some Smith's longspurs flew and gave 
call notes to provide identification.  Some of the longspurs were observed 
with binoculars and scope for positive visual ID as well.  We left the 
field at about 10:30am and by then the wind had begun to blow pretty hard.  
I'm not sure that ID would have been possible much later that morning.  I'm 
glad we got them when we did. 

Then we drove east to Melvern Reservoir.  There was some open water, but it 
was filled with Canada geese and mallards and a few gadwall.  Two bald 
eagles were sitting on the ice.  We found a dozen great blue herons in a 
flock at the dried up swimming area in the outlet park, but the main pond 
at the outlet was completely frozen.  Robins, juncos and a lone ring-billed 
gull were seen there. 

All in all, it was a good trip.  The long-eared owl and the Smith's 
longspurs were lifers for several people in attendance.  Check out the 
Topeka Audubon Society Facebook page for photos of the owl.  Super cool! 

Our members reported a total of 27 species for the morning.

Yesterday, Jan. 15, I counted 56 trumpeters in a disced corn field 3 miles N of 
Wathena near the intersection of Treese and Toulon roads. They were resting, a 
few were feeding but most were standing. Their location, between 150 to 200 
yards from the road, was not far enough away for my stopped vehicle to go 
unnoticed. After counting them several times and trying to determine adults vs. 
juveniles I moved on. Most were adults and they seemed to be gathered in family 
groups. 

This afternoon I went to look for them and discovered roughly 37 on the ice of 
Browning Lake, white dots and barely countable with binoculars. No viewpoint 
was closer than my location on Treese Road. 

A group of 7 was first noted east of Wathena on Jan. 8 and the corn field group 
on Jan. 13. 

Trumpeter numbers at Squaw Creek NWR declined from 507 on Dec. 29 to zero on 
Jan. 12. I believe some of those birds are feeding here. It will be interesting 
to see how long they stay.

Ksbirders,

My dad and I went to Clinton Lake in Douglas County, Shawnee Mission Park
and Nelson Island in Johnson County this morning. Clinton Lake only had a
few holes of open water but a lot ducks and geese. I also had at least two
American Pipits flying around near the beach at Bloomington Park and I was
able to record the call of one flying over. There was two Trumpeter Swans
on a frozen lake off K-10. Then we went to Shawnee Mission Park to try for
the Townsend's Solitaire and LBBG. We failed to find the TOSO (for a 3rd
time) but I think that I found the LBBG and a possible Glaucous Gull. I'm
very inexperienced when it come to Gulls so I will provide a link to the
pics and videos.

Notes about the Gulls: The Possible GLGU had all white primaries although
the photos and videos don't show it. It was bigger than the HEGUs around
it. I wondered if it could be a hybrid but I'm not for sure.

Link to Flickr:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/110518703 AT N07/sets/72157648005840293/

Lastly we stopped at Nelson Island to see if there was any gulls, there was
about thirty RBGUs and HEGUs but nothing else.

Good Birding,

Subject: Lake Cheney
From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>
Date: Thu, 15 Jan 2015 00:12:26 -0600
Hi Folks,

Lake Cheney (Wednesday) is still about 80% ice covered, with little or no open 
water near the shore, but we may have a warming spell coming up, to open things 
up a bit. With little open water there aren't a lot of Gulls at least near the 
shore. A lot of Snow Geese and late in the afternoon I saw a huge flock of Snow 
Geese fly over Cheney going West. After they passed I estimate they covered a 
area approximately 10 miles square. Those birds didn't come from Lake Cheney, 
they just flew over at high altitude. 


I did get a close look at a very dark hawk, I suspect a immature Harlan's. 
Completely black head and throat, with the rest of the black body covered with 
small white spots. The under tail was a dull whitish color with horizontal 
stripes. 


I counted about 50 Bald Eagles, mostly on the large ice area.

I found another Mockingbird on the SEast side of Cheney, miles away from the 
previous sightings. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

From: "markeland AT kc.rr.com" <markeland@KC.RR.COM>
Date: Wed, 14 Jan 2015 21:45:41 -0600
Dear Fellow Birders,

To all of you I owe an email please bear with me. My father passed away 
unexpectedly on Sunday. We have been spending all week working on his 
arrangements and getting out of town family home. 

I had not been able to bird since Sunday until this morning when I had a 
few hours while my brother and sister rested from their all night flight.
When I got to the park the hole in the ice by the marina had the usual 
Canada Geese and a few Hooded Mergansers. Then I noted a few gulls on the 
ice. When I was done with the goose estimate I looked over at the gulls and 
hundreds were dropping in. The flock kept growing and growing until a 
little over 700 were on the water. It eventually grew to over 1000. I left 
to go up the hill in a vain attempt to locate the solitaire. When I 
returned to the flock right in front was what I think was a third winter 
Lesser Black-backed Gull. The mantle was dark gray which stood out from the 
Herrings and Ring-billed. The bill was straight and mostly black with a 
pale base. The neck was streaked, the feathers around the eye dark. The 
coverts were still in second summer plumage. The feet were a pinkish/flesh. 
It was not that much larger than the Ring-bills and was smaller than the 
Herrings. It was last seen heading north toward the dump.

Thank you Matt for posting that.

Everyone is gathering for tomorrows visitation. For those interested the 
obituary is at www.amosfamily.com.

A couple of barred owls were doing mating calls a couple weeks ago here in 
Eudora. Thought it was 

rather early?

Hello Malcolm,
Structurally the head appears to fit Common Goldeneye. A small percentage
of the Common Goldeneye population show orange/non-dark bills and I believe
you've found one.

Good ducking,
E.J.

Subject: Orange-billed Female Goldeneye at Wyandotte County Lake
From: Malcolm Gold <malcolmgold AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 13 Jan 2015 11:15:25 -0600
During the Burroughs Audubon Field-Trip to Wyandotte County Lake on Sunday
January 11th I spotted an orange-billed female Goldeneye. An orange-bill on
a female Goldeneye is a field marks that leans toward Barrow's over Common
but alone is not definitive. Unfortunately the bird dove and evaded me and
others on Sunday.

On Monday I refound this bird, but whiffed on the long-tailed duck again,
and was able to study it better and confirm the identification of the bird.
(My delay in sharing this is a strong hint at which species I personally
believe it to be.)

As it is the season for Barrow's Goldeneye straying east, I thought others
might enjoy looking at the picture and video and determine your own opinion
on the identification.

The orange-billed female is often on the right of a dark-billed female in
the video.

Today we found the immature golden eagle that was seen this week-end at Yancy 
and 1800 just south of the LaCygne KCP&L lake in Linn county. I got a few 
pictures. This one is not great, but I think it shows identifying marks pretty 
well. Happy Birding!

Subject: Golden Eagle

I went birding in the Stockdale area on Saturday, and for my morning had a 
rather unexciting 23 species. However, number 21 was a fly-over juvenile Golden 
Eagle. Since I didn't have much time to look at it and my camera was in the 
car, there was no chance for a photo. This was frustrating, since it flew 
directly overhead and rather low. I wanted to report it on my i-phone, but it 
rejected my efforts. Hope maybe it will hang around. I may try to get out there 
in the next few days. It flew overhead as I was parked along Stockdale Park 
Road, just about where the blacktop road becomes gravel. 



Great birding for all!

Subject: Finding prairie-chickens in winter
From: David Hollie <featherbrain1223 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Mon, 12 Jan 2015 15:19:09 -0500
Hi,

I am a birder from Georgia and I will be traveling through Kansas during
the middle of February and am interested in doing some birding since I have
never visited the state before. The main birds I am interested in are both
Greater and Lesser Prairie-Chicken (especially Lesser). I've been doing
some eBird research and it appears that both are possible (with luck)
during February, though much harder than during the midst of lekking
season. I am wondering if anybody has any suggestions for locations and/or
strategies for finding either species during February. I noticed that the
Lautenbach brothers have a lot of sightings of Lesser Prairie-Chicken from
Comanche/Kiowa counties but I have been unsuccessful in attempting to
contact them via email. I assume most of the sightings are related to their
research so they may not be able to give me help due to the sensitivity of
the research.
I will have several days of full birding, so I have the time to put into
searching extensively for these species. Any help is much appreciated!

Good Birding!

Great looks for about 45 minutes early yesterday afternoon in the usual spot, 
just south of the famed bicycle sculpture (south edge of the parking lot south 
of the dam). The bird is quite tame but spends a lot of time on or near the 
ground in dense brush or low, tangled tree branches, where it is extremely easy 
to overlook. I got some more photos that I'll post on BirdsInFocus.com as soon 
as I get a chance.

Hi Folks,

I was taking a walk late this afternoon, and I decided to include Oak Park for 
a quick walk through. I didn't even have my camera. Wouldn't you know it, a 
Merlin Falcon flies out of a tree ahead of me and down the wide path landing in 
a distant tree. If I had my camera with me, I could have gotten a nice shot, 
but the Merlin stayed in place as I cautiously approached. It finally flew, 
after I was able to get a good look. Guess where I'm going to be tomorrow 
morning, but with my camera. 


As I was leaving Oak Park I heard 2 Barred Owls, in different places in the 
park, probably the mating pair, keeping in touch with each other. 


Near the end of my walk, as I nearing my place in Riverside, a very large owl 
flew by me above the trees and turned and landed in some tall evergreens down 
the street, above somebodies house. It was just after sunset, I suspect the owl 
was a Great Horned. When I reached the evergreens I looked for the owl, but it 
wasn't visible in the heavy foliage. I have been hearing a Great Horned Owl, 
now and then, during the night. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Birders,
    Possibly the same Imm. Golden Eagle was
present this afternoon at the south end of the mined road in Linn Co. The 
address is Yancy & 1800 road. An Imm. Golden was seen at this location on the 
Christmas count. 

 Also, 9 Common Loons present on the power lake, upper end by the hot water 
outlet. 

          Good Luck!
