Subject: Dodge City yard birds
From: Jeff Calhoun <jeffcalhoun11 AT GMAIL.COM>

Howdy All from Dodge City Days!

After the first Hummingbird appeared in my yard on July 18 and was
identified as an Archilochus sp. tending mostly towards a Black-chinned,
that has been the normal ID in the yard. I have sightings 6 out of the
past 11 days of a bird IDed by the same criteria. This was notable because
I had not previously seen a Black-chinned Hummer in Ford Co., the last of
the five "common" species I hadn't recorded in my yard. I had seen more
than enough details to satisfy me so it is now on my list!

I had a classic adult female Rufous Hummingbird, typically the most
regular, one time and for 30 seconds on July 25. And so far as I know that
has been it for that species.

Two friends of mine and I enjoyed the Archilochus again last night,
although I didn't really do my due diligence to ID the bird although it was
feeding in the yard frequently and for long periods of time, perhaps making
it Oklahoma bound last night. My earliest Ruby-throated sighting is August
15 so I've got plenty of time to break my record.

But this morning I had two hummers aggressively fighting over the flower
beds. One was an Archilochus and one was an unknown hummingbird species
(give me a break.. I was busy!). I went out later and gave the
Archilochus a good study, the only one still feeding actively just before
noon, and again landed at Black-chinned. I'm not sure if this is a
different bird or not, and I'm not sure what she was bullying. Hopefully
I'll find out tonight. To top it all off, the guy that I'd trust with
any hummingbird ID more than any others agrees with me and Black-chin.

I've also had a Least Flycatcher in the yard the past week, also feeding
over the flower beds but for different sustenance. Two Carolina Wrens that
wander the neighborhood have again landed in my backyard and have been a
regular sound the past two days. And this morning, my FOY yard House Wren
popped in. They are all over the countryside and other neighborhoods
in Ford Co., but nice to have one singing and scouting out my yard. I
noticed this same pattern in 2014. There are a few HY White-winged Doves
around my yard. I had a small Cliff Swallow flock over the house last
night, somewhat of a rarity yard bird for me. My largest kettle of
Mississippi Kites is only 26, sadly following a similar trend from Garden
City. No Swainson's Hawks coming back into town for me, yet, but plenty out
in playa country (they roost with TVs on the water tower for a few weeks in
the late Summer and early Fall). Finally, it looks like the Purple Martin
roost here in Dodge is active again. I'll hope to check it out one of these
nights when the hummer watching is poor. So, hopefully not tonight.

On 7-28-2015, I returned from a two-week mission trip to Ceara state, Brazil. 
Doing some casual birding (no hard-core birding excursions) I saw 112-113 total 
species and 92-93 new "lifers!" 

There was a good diversity of habitat in the places out team visited between 
the arid Caatinga of the lowlands and the jungly Atlantic forest of the Serra 
(highlands).

Are there any bird people interested in education or helping bird at Flying
T girl scout camp near Syracuse?

 

I just was talking to a woman who wants to improve wildlife habitat and
learn more about wildlife at the camp.

 

She saw some quail there for the first time.  

 

Habitat is sand sage prairie.

 

If interested, I will send you her email address.

Subject: Topeka Kite update
From: Jeff Hansen <hanjd AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:53:21 -0500
This morning I went back to the Kite locality and found a pair perched in a
semi-dead tree.  A bit later I saw 4 kites flying overhead (the two from the
tree  plus two more).  All were mature birds.  

 

Yesterday I talked to more neighbors in the area.   One guy saw them
collecting branches from his trees in the past.  He and I went to the
neighbor across the street and she said they are often perching in the tree
in their front yard.  They are well known in the neighborhood. The 3 of us
stood under said tree and both kites were in it preening the entire time.
She checked her phone records and the first day she noticed them was July 9.
Sounds like resident birds.

 

I'm thinking the one pair tried to nest and failed.

I agree with John Northrup that it's a T. superbus, which is the most common 
cicada currently calling in daylight hours. 

T. Pruinosa (scissor grinder) are calling mostly in the evening and at night. 
These guys usually start calling around 

June 15, in the Wichita area. 

In Harper Co. T. superbus is far more common than the scissor grinder. I would 
guess that there is at least 5 or more 

species of dog-day cicadas (the genus of Tibicen) in the Wichita area.

For those who may be interested, Kansas has another ListServ that would be more 
appropriate for cicada's. 

It can be found at: http://listserv.ksu.edu/archives/ksleps-l.html

Subject: Topeka Miss. Kites + Garden City MIKI
From: Tom SHANE <tom.shane AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:08:04 -0700
Jeff,

Once the MIKI young start giving their distinctive calls, the nests are often 
easy to find. Plus, Adults often fly straight into the nest tree and directly 
to the nest with food, make the transfer, and are back out foraging within a 
few seconds. 


Our Kite population here in Garden City is about as low as I can remember in 
years. Neither pair from the two nests I was following last year returned to 
those sites this year, after both fledged young last year. However; we were 
very happy to hear and then see a kettle of 43 Mississippi Kites soaring above 
our house and neighborhood this morning (26 JUL 15). In previous years we often 
would be seeing kettles of 70 - 100 kites by now.

All in Sedgwick County:
I checked the Colwich Sod Farms this am for Buff-breasted Sandpipers and 
found none.  The bridge over the Ark River north of Mt. Hope remains 
closed for construction so I skipped the long route needed to reach 
Greenfield and Patterson wetlands.  Mt Hope Marsh is holding the most 
water it has had since at least 2012 but there are no open flats visible 
from the road.  A brief stop at LaFarge turned up 15 Forster,s and 2 
Black Terns, 2 Ring-billed Gulls and 1 DC Cormorant.  All of these birds 
were lined up on the surface floats for the boom pipe.

 Driving down Huntoon this
 morning about 9am, I noticed two kite like birds flying overhead. I pulled 
into Grace Point Church’s parking lot and spotted one kite perched in a dead 
tree. 

 About 5 blue jays were hassling the kite. The other kite was still flying 
overhead. This is at Belle & Huntoon. Kites were on the south side of Huntoon I 
was starving, so didn’t hang around long. Went back at 11 am but didn’t see 
any kites. Seems possible that they might nesting here in Topeka, but how to 
find the nest.

Driving down Huntoon this morning about 9am, I noticed two kite like birds
flying overhead.  I pulled into Grace Point Church's parking lot and spotted
one kite perched in a dead tree. About 5 blue jays were hassling the kite.
The other kite was still flying overhead. This is at Belle & Huntoon.  Kites
were on the south side of Huntoon I was starving, so didn't hang around
long.  Went back at 11 am but didn't see any kites.  Seems possible that
they might nesting here in Topeka, but how to find the nest.

By the way in this kite video http://vimeo.com/134388636 which I just
posted in previous post, you can hear both kinds of cicadas.  For
example the trilling buzz of the "Superbus" (or so it seems) cicadas
can be heard from 2:58 to 3:01 and 3:57-4:01, and 6:20-6:23, while the
"Dog day" cicadas w/ their characteristic downward modulations are
really loud from 6:26-6:30.

More videos of the nest:

good view of the chick's opened wings.

I have some other videos from the last couple of days-- some even
taken using a tripod!--  showing the chick moving around, opening
wings, even flapping wings-- but I've filled my Vimeo usage for the
week so won't be able to post them till Tuesday...

Meanwhile here are a couple of other videos from several days ago:

On the 22 and 23rd I birded Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira respectively. My
best discovery was as I turned up the back stretch on th wildlife drive and
headed north at Quivira. I had a small plover with a young one running in
the road ahead. I decided it was a Piping Plover and young. It definitely
was not a snowy It had an orange bill and at first I had to convince myself
it was light enough to be a Piping rather thn Semipalmated.The tough part
was after viewing them for awhile was trying to pass them. Either the adult
or the juvenile would run over in front of the car.Luckily it was in the
morning before it got scorching hot. Finally they both got close to the
right and I was able to pass. Evidently this is the first record of them
breeding at Quivira?

C. J.,

I went out to Sara's feed yard one evening this week, here in Finney County, 
and checked the one very nice pond they have on the east side where we have 
found some fantastic birds over the years. I drove along an outside set of feed 
bunks while looking for water birds and estimated 200 BHCOs. Using that sample 
I could have easily extrapolated to 3000 or 4000 cowbirds in the entire yard. 
We have also had several flocks of 20 to 30 BHCOs go over the house several 
evenings this week. 


We had a report of a Gr. Roadrunner on the southwest edge of Scott City this 
week with a fair photo. I had one in the southeast corner of Scott County 
several years ago on my BBS route. I figured no one would believe me so I did 
not turn it in for KS or to MD.

Hi Steve,
Nice to see you focusing on kites! Is there definitely only one chick? The one 
I saw in your video looked like it was around 2 weeks old on 7/21, which means 
it could start branching by the end of July or early August under normal 
circumstances (probably staying close to the nest for at least another week or 
so) and flying by about August 10 or 11. They sometimes leave the nest early in 
extreme heat or drought.

Taken in Wichita.  This nest gives an unusually good view from one
particular direction, and the adults have never given evidence of
being bothered by my presence.  My Canon SX-30 is a bit limited, and
obviously I would benefit from a tripod!  Unfortunately it appears
that the vimeo conversion has much reduced the frame rate.

I have many more similar videos, but this is all I've posted so far.

Any guesses as to a likely fledging date for this chick, if it makes
it to fledging?

Best views of chick are around 2:30 to 4:30 here:

the day the adults drove away two immature birds, but they tolerated
this one.  I haven't seen any evidence of actual "helping" behavior at
this nest.

It is indeed normal! In fact you can often find flocks of mostly males, 
females, or juv birds! Starlings will also start to flock up as will C

Date: Thu, 23 Jul 2015 12:48:24 -0500
This week I found on the floor of our screened-in "Cube" a very young
Carolina Wren baby.  They traditionally nest behind a large fan hanging on
the wall of the structure.  Knowing some birds abandon their chicks if
handled by humans I reluctantly moved it to the deck outside.  It couldn't
stay on the floor and I didn't think it would do so in that nest either.
So I more or less abandoned it to nature.  Found by its parent not long
afterward, it fell/wiggled off the deck to the ground below where the
parent tried to feed it.

So I picked it back up, put it back in its nest and wondered if the parent
would take care of it.  That was several days ago.  This morning when I
checked the nest was delighted to find a more furry-feathered baby clearly
prospering.  What great parenting is that!  Single baby is likely soon to
be found by our resident rat snake.

I had to make a run to central Nebraska for work and stopped by Jamestown WA 
while passing by. It was my first visit to the location and I was very

areas into units, which should provide a more stable grouping of habitat, 
especially in drought years. If done well it could vault this area into a must 
see birding location(if it's not already). 


Currently on the S end, in the area of Sportsman Lake, there are large 
quantities of mud flats present. Best bird was a Long-billed Dowitcher, but I 
only had about an hour to search the whole facility so I am sure I missed some 
good birds. There were several hundred shorebirds present in the areas I was 
able to see, 9 different species. To my untrained eye, I would estimate that at 
least for the next month there will be decent mud flats available, longer if 
they get some rains. If this location wasn't 4 hrs away I would be hitting 
again in a month. An all-day bird with some hiking would be a memorable 
adventure I am sure. Area birders should make it a point to stop in on this 
location as shorebird migration peaks.

I had to make a run to central Nebraska for work and stopped by Jamestown WA 
while passing by. It was my first visit to the location and I was very 
impressed. Tons of great habitat. It will be interesting to see how the 
renovations effect the area. I read where they are going to divide a lot of the 
areas into units, which should provide a more stable grouping of habitat, 
especially in drought years. If done well it could vault this area into a must 
see birding location(if it's not already).

Between my computer, my Internet provider, and the KSbirds listserve,
somebody is adding a lot of junk to any posting I send to the list.
 I have a work-around, but forgot to use it when I posted yesterday.

	Here is what I intended to post in response to Jeff Calhoun's account
of our two day outing:

	This was a great mid-summer outing. I think I ended with 114 species
with  
Turkeys seen in Pawnee County as I was driving home.  Not bad for the
time 
of year.  Even with all of the rain, many playas are dry.  Others
are very 
full and should hold water into spring migration.

Apparently Sora was not on the Gray County list and Coot is not listed
as a 
Gray County breeding bird.

Today I watched a Coot pair with three chicks.  The chicks were 1/4
to 1/3 
the size of the parents. The parents appeared to be building a new
nest. 
Does anyone know if Coots will re-nest after successfully hatching a
brood?

Black Terns seemed to be at every good playa.

Thank you Jeff for showing me around your corner of the state.

Heard a sora at the seasonal wetlands at 25th & Countryside this morning.
One was seen earlier at 17th & Countryside this morning.  Seems to be summer
of the sora.

This was a great mid-summer outing. I think I ended with 114 species with 
Turkeys seen in Pawnee County as I was driving home.  Not bad for the time 
of year.  Even with all of the rain, many playas are dry.  Others are very 
full and should hold water into spring migration.

Apparently Sora was not on the Gray County list and Coot is not listed as a 
Gray County breeding bird.

Today I watched a Coot pair with three chicks.  The chicks were 1/4 to 1/3 
the size of the parents. The parents appeared to be building a new nest. 
does anyone know if Coots will re-nest after successfully hatching a brood?

Black Terns seemed to be at every good playa.

Henry Armknecht and I wandered around a few counties in the Dodge City area
Monday and Tuesday, and we found a few birds wandering the same general
areas, including numerous southbound migrants. Highlights below:

Eleven waterfowl species were recorded, highlighted by a Hooded Merganser
on a playa lake near Montezuma (Gray Co, 7/20).

Eared Grebe - 6 total (Meade, Gray, Ford)
Snowy Egret - 1 (Gray, 7/20)
Sora - 3 in Gray Co. on playas, 7/20
American Coot - confirmed breeding in Gray and Meade Co

Sixteen species of shorebird were recorded, Solitary Sandpiper being the
bird of the event by the end of it:
Spotted Sandpiper - 21, probably undercounted
Solitary Sandpiper - 40 total, probably undercounted
Willet - 6 (Gray, Ford 7/20)
Upland Sandpiper - 20, probably undercounted

Archilochus hummingbird (probably Black-chinned) - 1 in Ford Co 7/20
Forster's Tern - 1 on playa in Meade Co, 7/21
Gull sp.!!!! - 1 at Ford SFL 7/21, more below

White-winged Dove - found reliably at locations in Ford, Gray, Meade, Clark
Counties
Least Flycatcher - 6 total (Gray 7/20, Ford and Meade, 7/21)
Bank Swallow - 9 total (Gray 7/20, Ford and Meade 7/21.. good time of year
to see them)


The Gull at Ford SFL was a huge surprise and by far the wackiest thing on
that list in my opinion. It was very cloudy with difficult lighting and the
bird was seen soaring like a hawk. We were seeing an adult white-headed
gull with markings on the lower and upper mandible. I was thinking that it
had a dark iris although distance and lighting were quite difficult. In my
awful pictures I think I see some contrast on the lower side of the wing
but I don't recall seeing that well in the field. Anyways, it was a gull in
Ford Co. in July. I'm going to sleep on it, but if anybody wants to squint
over some awful gull pictures and see if they can see something that will
help me identify it to a species, let me know. I'll be happy to send some
along for your viewing pleasure.

I was at a residence in Wilson Estates near 21st and Rock yesterday for 
work.  Didn't have binocs but there was a for sure Pine Siskin feeding 
two noisy fledged birds in some big pines.  Really seemed incongruous 
with the oppressive heat and humidity we had yesterday. And it was July 
20 in southern Kansas.

Purple Martins are flying over my property in N. Wichita  in good 
numbers the last few evenings, flying southeast as they have in previous 
years.  I don't know if they are back to roosting at the St. Francis 
Hospital site again or elsewhere.  There is a roost somewhere obviously.

RIght at the Hydraulic Ave exit to K-96 there has been a Yellow-crowned 
Night Heron feeding in the ditch on the east side of Hydraulic right 
under the bridge on many days this summer.  This has been a good place 
to see them in other years.

From a rail perspective, we really don't have a great handle on migration and 
resident status. Hard to confirm breeding. 


We know what is going on at most of the reliable wetlands Cheyenne Bottoms, 
QNWR, Slate Creek Wetlands (SCW), Baker, and some of the others, and some of 
the playa's, but in large part...they are a mystery. 


At SCW we have confirmed records of breeding for King, Virginia, Am Coot and 
Common Moorhen. But the actual number of confirmed breeding records are few 
(i.e. young observed). We do have summer records for all of them, presumed 
nesting, as we have had for Sora as well (but never confirmed). There has been 
many changes to the marsh over the years, and as a result, changes in rail 
residency and populations. 


For example, in 80-90's King Rails and Virginia's were regular all summer, 
especially King. But modifications, and eventual removal of cattails (Winfield 
Gun Club) caused changes. King's became less common, as did Virginia, but 
Sora's increased. Moorhen's were only reported once, back in like the 60's or 
70s, than all of sudden boom, they were there and they bred when the cattails 
came back (as did King's). Lasted a year or two, than cattails removed, and 
they haven't been back. Back in the 80's and 90's I actively looked for nests, 
never successful. Also did a bunch of nighttime surveys, and it was productive. 
Haven't done much of those in recent years, not since the KSBBAT, but habitat 
is looking better and better. The South Marsh (private) has had some extensive 
work with tree removal. However, phragmites has invaded...cattails, spartina, 
sedges, are doing well in other portions, so it's looking promising for the 
future. The State land has had a bunch of new we! 

 tlands developed, and some of these as they mature are becoming more conducive 
to such species. I think the State land will be promising in the future too, 
especially with reduction of some woody vegetation. And the Winfield Gun Club 
has had a tremendous increase in cattails. If they keep them, spartina 
increases along the edges, and we get excellent rail habitat (not to mention Am 
Bittern and Least Bittern), but it's losing open water, not conducive to 
waterfowl hunting. Thus, if it stays for a year or two, it could be really 
good, but if they decide to get rid of, well, it won't be.

Subject: Local patch lesson
From: Al Schirmacher <alschirmacher AT LIVE.COM>
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:44:42 -0500
I am a local patch birder.


95-98% of my birding occurs within 20 miles of my home.


I walk, and bird, five days per week on average.  Sometimes six.


This leads to a mistaken assumption.


The mistake:  that I thoroughly,
exhaustively, know my local patch.


Today is a good example. 
I walked part of the patch.  A
Scarlet Tanager sang, and was later seen.


So?


This was a new personal bird for that walk, frankly, for
that county.  



Its July 21st. 
Statistically, its not migrating through. Statistically, it probably wasnt 
blown here from 

somewhere else.  Its, most likely, a
summer resident.


In other words, chances are, it lives here. And I never noticed it. Nor had 
another birder who works that 

particular road even more often.


I, we, missed a startlingly red bird with a distinctive song
and call.


Personal lesson:  Dont
get too big for my britches.  Dont say,
they dont come here.  Dont say, I doubt
your sighting. Listen humbly. Review the evidence without bias. Give the 
benefit of the doubt. 



Second personal lesson: 
Keep working the local patch.  It
changes, its worth my time.

Subject: Upland Sandpipers - House Wrens - Robin
From: John Northrup <jdn008 AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:39:34 -0400
Had a small movement of Upland Sandpipers this morning overhead....the first of 
the season for me. Also, as a side note, this makes the fifth year in a row 
that I have had NO House Wrens (seen or heard) in my suburban west Wichita 
neighborhood. They once were common and impossible to overlook. I've mentioned 
this in previous years and from everyone's response it appears to be a very 
localized anomaly. Very odd. One last thing, I tracked down what I was certain 
was a Cedar Waxwing to find it was only a Robin making a high pitched "seeeet" 
call. I can't recall connecting that sound to a Robin before and upon a little 
internet research I found an exact recording of this sound and an explanation 
that it is an alarm call often made when a hawk or other predator is present. I 
saw no predators but maybe he didn't like the looks of ME.

Subject: Osprey - Bone Creek Lake; Black Vulture - Crawford SP
From: Andrew Burnett <aburnett AT MAGNUMSYSTEMS.COM>
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2015 18:36:37 +0000
Took the cool morning to bird around Crawford Co a bit.

Started at Crawford SP. Was able to observe a Black Vulture at close range. 
Seemed healthy but let me approach very close, in fact it was so still I didn't 
notice it until I was within 30 ft. I believe it was sleeping as this was just 
about daybreak. Sometimes the birding gods smile on you. A very actively 
calling Louisiana Waterthrush was viewable at the bottom of the spillway on the 
road to the hatchery. 51 species total seen there in about an hour. 


An Osprey was perched on the windmill on the dam at Bone Creek Lake. Mike Rader 
reminded me that Bone Creek was the location of previous nesting attempts. The 
nest platform there had a few sticks on it, but it didn't seem to be enough 
material to warrant a nest. That said I did have poor angle on it. I will 
attempt a return trip soon to study the situation more closely.

If anyone needs a Sora for Shawnee county, several of us saw 2 today. 
They were located NW of Topeka in a flooded corner of the field at the 
KState field research facility. This is located at County Side Rd. and 
NW 17th St. They were moving around some, but mostly we saw them in the 
NW corner of the flooded area, along 17th. Also present in this flooded 
area were Solitary Sandpipers and Least Sandpipers, along with the usual 
collection of birds such as Killdeer and Red-winged Blackbirds.

Quivira's Observation Tower, located at the south end of Little Salt 
Marsh, has been closed to entry due to unsafe conditions as of Friday, 
July 17.  This closure is permanent, as it will have to be replaced (in 
2018 or possibly sooner), rather than repaired.  The photo blind west of 
the Tower remains open, and is likely the best viewing spot for the south 
end of LSM.

Date: Mon, 20 Jul 2015 16:04:14 +0000
Birded the Elk City Lake Area from sunup until around 1PM Saturday.

150+ Turkey Vultures were taking off at dawn from the dam area. Spent a good 
amount of time trying to pick out a Black Vulture but could not. The dam area 
has been good in the spring for finding Black Vultures. 


Lake is being lowered off of flood control levels.. lots of wading and 
shorebird habitat. Just by guessing I would say about 2-3 more feet should be 
lowered to get to typical levels. 


~150 each of Great Egret & Great Blue Heron (No other waders found) - South 
side near refuge area was the largest concentration. 


Shorebirds SP found - Solitary Sandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper, Pectoral 
Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs 


Painted Buntings were abundant the whole length of the bluff(North) side.. at 
least 8 were seen. 


A Mississippi Kite was seen soaring over Independence.

Other notables:  Yellow-breasted Chat, Eastern Towhee

Overall 73 species were found, all lists logged to eBird.

Hello-
Mark Land and I made a quick run thru Marias des Cygne on Saturday
morning.  We
were able to find some of the birds Mick had previously mentioned.  Here
are a few highlights
of our 90 species morning:

Unit G:
Common Loon - 1 in basic winter plumage (unexpected in this habitat
location any time of year,
                        more expected on the power plant lake)
Great Blue Heron - 130, potentially more
Great Egret - 250+ counted by ones, potentially more
Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron - 4, including a couple immature
Bald Eagle - 1 near full adult plumage (tail still a little dark)
Black Tern - 1
Forster's Tern - 1

Unit F:
Snowy Egret - 1
Semipalmated Plover - 2
Killdeer - 78+
Spotted Sandpiper - 3
Solitary Sandpiper - 1
Greater Yellowlegs - 1
Lesser Yellowlegs - 16
Stilt Sandpiper - 1
Least Sandpiper - 25+
Semipalmated Sandpiper - 67+

swallows, indigo buntings and summer tanagers were quite prevalent.
Also had a Mississippi Kite near the river and an apparent Fish Crow
family.  The habitat could be different today if they got the same rain
we had in NE KS - had 3.5+ inches overnight.

Good birding,

I've been hitting the literature and tried to make the most of the 8 visits
today, and I think I have a female Black-chinned Hummingbird in my yard
(Ford Co. 7/19). Regardless, any Archilochus hummer in Dodge on this date
is a notable event.  It could be the 5th hummer species I've recorded here.
And I'm pretty sure it is!

I have not birded much in my neighboring Crawford County other than
"windshield birding."  Saturday I drove for about 12 miles north up the west
edge of Crawford and came back through McCune.  This is farm country with
quite a few creek crossings and patches of timber.  I picked up 4 new ones
to put me over the 75 mark for county listing purposes.  Only 28 species in
all.  Most very common.  Summer Tanager was best find.  I thought I heard a
Black and White Warbler and after yesterday's comments on the list I
probably did but I'm not sure enough to count it.  Hot, humid, tough
birding.  I realized at 8AM I started too late in the day.  Take care.

This morning I found a Semi-palmated plover west of the Menoken Borrow Pit
in a seasonal wetland.  There was also a light colored bird.  After looking
at possibilities I'm thinking it might be a snowy or piping plover (young
bird).

 

I have zero experience with these birds.  Here is the video

Subject: Black and White Warblers in Sedgwick County
From: Pete Janzen <pete.janzen AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Sat, 18 Jul 2015 05:42:33 -0500
Regarding Jeff's Black and White Warbler observations near Derby: If you 
refer to my now 10 year old Birds of Sedgwick Co book you will find that 
Tyler Hickshad a very similar record of singing Black and White Warbler 
in his patch of riparian river habitat at Mulvane ( a few miles 
downstream from the Calhoun property), also in July, that included the 
male singing from the ground. This is a ground nesting species that 
typically favors rocky slopes with some oaks present so the Ark River 
corridorin Sedgwick Co. is marginal habitat for sure. They are pretty 
easy to come by in the right habitat in the Cross Timbers region. Also I 
would not be surprised if someday someone finds them to have an isolated 
breeding population in Comanche Co. I recall a WAS trip in early April 
when we had 4-5 singing males in the upper reaches of Schwartz Canyon. 
Didn't seem likely that so many of them would be in such a small area if 
they were just migrants. Just one of those things I wonder about sometimes.

Birders,
 It`s not great-yet. Unit G at MDC had over 140 Great Egrets, and F2, south of 
the river, had a 

 Snowy Egret, and 5 Sp. of shorebirds, 
   Worth checking, if you are in the area.

Subject: Birds at limit of their ranges
From: Jeff Calhoun <jeffcalhoun11 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:14:20 -0500
On Monday, July 13 I had an Ash-throated Flycatcher along the Cimarron
River south of Protection (Comanche Co.). I've had them multiple times in
Summer along that same watershed in Clark Co. and once in summer in Meade
Co. Their range may in fact be along the Cimarron throughout KS although I
imagine it's hard to find one in Grant and Stevens Co. sections.

This morning, July 17, I had a very agitated male Black-and-White Warbler
near the Arkansas River in Derby (Sedgwick Co.). I had BAWW records from
this same location in July 2012 (twice) and July 2013. None of those years
had any May-June records of that species, an event I never quite
understood. With Pileated Woodpecker, Northern Parula, Summer Tanager, and
White-eyed Vireo present every Summer here, perhaps this is next in line.
But why is it a July event? I don't think a migrant would be singing and
then as agitated as today's bird. Odd. Admittedly, I don't think a birder
has treaded out there all season long in 2015, adding to the mystery.

Subject: Marvin Schwilling in Garden City movie
From: Tom SHANE <tom.shane AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Thu, 16 Jul 2015 14:01:12 -0700
Dr. Rintoul posted a reference to a 1950s movie of Garden City (most likely 
taken in 1954 or 1955) on FB yesterday. Part way through the series on the 
Finney County Fish and Game Association I immediately recognized Marvin 
Schwilling standing at a table, with his ever present enthusiastic smile, with 
two other Fish and Game employees. Marvin was holding the Bufflehead. Marvin 
was probably 30 or 31 years old at the time. 


It is easiest to find the movie on Youtube; type in: This is Our Town, Garden 
City, Kansas. The Fish and Game Association section starts at (minute:second) 
9:25 into the movie, and Marvin appears from 10:08 thru 10:30. 


If there ever was a single eminent member of KOS, it certainly has to be Marvin 
Schwilling. 


In another part of the movie an aerial view of the Arkansas River showed just a 
small stream, but then I realized it was a series of drought years. It 
certainly was when I lived in Junction City at that time period. 


I thought that I might see Dave Rintoul in the movie running around as a little 
tyke, but could see none of the boys with a Hawaiian shirt. :>) 


If any of you are still in contact with the Schwilling family you might get 
this to them. They would love to see it. There are some videos of Marvin on 
youtube from more recent years.

Subject: Baker Wetlands survey
From: Daniel Larson <birdkansa AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 16 Jul 2015 09:56:58 -0500
On the 15th  Roger Boyd, Kylee Sharp, Scott Kimball and Sam Richards
surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence Kansas. They had to curtail for around 45
minutes as black clouds and heavy lightening rolled through. They found 62
species.

Most unusual find was a Kentucky Warbler. Although the riparian habitat
seems right. One haa not been recorded until now. Roger and Sam saw it good
within 40 feet.  Greenish back, yellow belly and breast, black cap and
lore with black mark coming down thru the eye like a falcon face.
Yellow lore and eyeline.  Appeared somewhat lighter in color so guess it is
a female or juvenile.

The Lesser Yellowlegs and Least Sandpipers were fly bys. Because of all the
rain recently the shorelines have changed and don't seem appropriate for
these birds at this time. Spotted Sandpipers were in newly graded area that
is south of the lake and coming up in new wheat..

Other unusual thing was the large numbers of some of the species. There
were 45 Rock Pigeons and 337 Mourning Doves. These seem to be there because
of recently harvested wheat. There were 298 Cliff Swallows mostly around
the abandoned bridge.

Remember Baker Wetlands is still closed do to construction.

The entire count is at the site below.

No further evidence of a Roseate Spoonbill has been found today at 
Quivira, despite several efforts this morning and early afternoon.  It 
should be noted that light conditions looking south from NE 170th Street 
are not ideal much of the day, somteimes making it difficult to discern 
true colors.  Any more information will certainly be posted as it occurs.

I see young chickadees and downy woodpeckers at the feeders so often that I 
wondered if they even know how to find natural food.  Could this be a problem?

Subject: Quivira Roseate Spoonbill report from 15 Jul 15
From: Barry Jones <barjones78 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:49:11 -0500
Illinois visitors reported a Roseate Spoonbill in the interior Wildlife 
Drive area (wetlands south of NE 170th street) yesterday (14 July) about 
mid-day.  Based on description, it sounds fairly likely.  Staff has been 
checking this morning but so far have been unable to locate it.  We will 
update later today regardless.  The area of the sighting is characterized 
by the following:
1.  Shallow wetlands of varying size, interspersed with various heights of 
emergent vegetation.  Hence the bird could easily be hidden from view, if 
present.
2.  Large numbers (more than 100 each) of herons and egrets, and even a 
few white-faced ibis, as well as pelicans.

Best vantage points for searching would be from at or near the bridge 
along NE 170th looking south (or up to 1/2 mile west of that location); or 
various points along the east (beginning) portion of the Wildlife Drive 
looking west.  There are also wetlands north of NE 170th visible from the 
road, but also from walking north from the "North Lake Main" parking lot 
with kiosk along the Service Road.  NOTE: please do not use any other 
service roads either south or north of NE 170th, as we are still within 
the Least Tern nesting period.

Subject: Cardinal Nest
From: Jeff Hansen <hanjd AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 14 Jul 2015 15:52:37 -0500
I've been watching a cardinal build a nest in a relatively unprotected shrub
in my backyard.  I just came in from checking the nest and the cardinal has
its first egg.  What surprised me is she was on the nest at 3:45.  I assumed
they wouldn't be on the nest until the full clutch was formed.  My question
is this: will birds stay on their eggs to protect them from the heat in the
summer time.  It is 96 degrees out and the nest is in full sun.  The shrub
offers little shade as it's a wild indigo (Amorpha fruticosa).  I would
think summer clutches of eggs would need protection from the heat.

The PMCA and OU Aeroecology Lab need your help.

As part of our ongoing collaboration to locate and conserve Purple Martin 
Roosts across the continent, we are looking for volunteers to verify the 
location and composition of several radar indicated swallow roosts. 


If you are interested in helping, please contact joe AT purplemartin.org with the 
locations on which you will be checking. Please respond by next Wednesday July 
22 as some of these roosts end in late July. I will provide you with 
instruction and the GPS coordinates to investigate.
