Just had a rusty blackbird in my backyard in the area where I have hazelnuts
and bladdernut shrubs.  Lots of leaf litter (why do people send their leaves
to the dump.sad sad sad).  Anyway Mr Rusty was working through the leaves as
he foraged.  Really a handsome bird. 

 

During the Topeka CBC our team had a flock of 40 rusty blackbirds west of
Topeka in the Kansas River Valley.  That seemed like a substantial flock
worth reporting.  We also had two different prairie falcons in our area.  

 

My backyard has been crazy busy with birds today.  Guess the rain brings
them in.  21 species so far today.

Several years back when we found crossbills, they were in the park below
the dam as well as in the neighborhood on the west side of Rocky Ford.

Subject: Neosho Co - Golden Eagle....
From: Andrew Burnett <aburnett AT MAGNUMSYSTEMS.COM>
Date: Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:50:30 +0000
Photos surfaced Friday evening, 12-19-14, on the Kansas Birding Facebook page 
of a Golden Eagle taken in Western Neosho Co. Since the photos were taken near 
sunset I decided to attempt to relocated the next morning. I was unable to find 
it, but did find 38 Red-tailed hawks during my morning search of 20 miles. 
Smith's longspurs making flight calls were a highlight as well as a prairie 
falcon chasing a group of blackbirds. My only consolation is that I had always 
thought this area is where a Golden would turn up if one ever did. 


Another thing I was struck by was the absolute lack of Harris' Sparrows. It's 
typically easy to find foraging groups in pretty much any habitat this time of 
year, this year there seem to be many fewer around. Not one was seen during my 
20 mile outing. I also do not have any at my feeding station, where it has been 
typical to find a dozen or more in previous years. 


I also had a brief look at what I thought was a Greater Prairie Chicken 
scurrying in field stubble. It was too far away to know for certain, but you 
can bet I'll be back during the booming time. As far as I know there has not 
been a documented GPC sighting since 1996 in this county.

I have a had a few questions about where the Red Crossbills were found on the 
Manhattan CBC yesterday. We initially found a flock of 15 in the small group of 
pines at the Tuttle Dam overlook area above the west end of the dam. They were 
actively calling and I had the opportunity to directly compare their calls with 
the calls on the Audubon app on my phone. They seemed to perfectly fit the Type 
2 calls. This flock eventually flew to another pine north of the overlook area. 
Later in the morning a flock of 12 birds was found at the west entrance to the 
state park below the dam. After lunch birders went back to the overlook and 
found that the crossbills had returned to those trees. I checked late in the 
afternoon and again this morning and could not relocate them. - Ted

Mark Robbins called and said that he listened to Jeff's recording and there is 
no doubt that it is the Pacific Winter Wren. When it is processed by the KBRC, 
and gets their nod, it should be another species added to the Kansas List. 
Congratulations Jeff and Henry!!!

Hello and Merry Christmas KS Birders,

The Scott Lake and Jetmore CBCs were held this past Saturday and Sunday, 
respectively. The highlights of the Scott Lake count was the Evening Grosbeak 
and the highlight of the Jetmore count was that the All-Star brain trust lunch 
was peaceful and everyone could go home from a dismal day. 


On both counts I did encounter some wrens, one at Scott Lake (12/20, Scott Co), 
one at Buckner Valley Park and one just west of Jetmore on Buckner Creek 
(12/21, Hodgeman Co). 


*Scott Lake Wren*

*Buckner Creek Wren* - This one was a classic Winter Wren.
No picture, no videos, but a poor recording is at

In conclusion, I recorded 2 Winter Wrens on the Jetmore CBC today, and 1 Wren 
of uncertain identity on the Scott CBC on 12/20. You can click through the 
links and see an interesting comparative analysis of Wrens found on the High 
Plains this weekend!! 


Merry Christmas!!!

4th time was a charm for me on this life bird, ugh, finally!

KS-Birders:

The 2014 Manhattan CBC (66th count) was held on Saturday, December 20 with 54 
observers in 23 parties for a total of 115 party hours. Preliminary results as 
follows. Total numbers recorded on the count were 73,594 individuals of 94 bird 
species. Three new forms were added to the Manhattan CBC checklist: 
GadwallxMallard (hybrid, count week/cw only), Northern Flicker (intergrade, 1), 
and Dark-eyed Junco (Pink-sided race, 1).  We had new high counts for four 
species in 2014: Ross' Goose (38), Pileated Woodpecker (6), Yellow-rumped 
Warbler (183), and Red Crossbill (27). Good birds that turned up on the count 
included: Red-shouldered Hawk (2), Merlin (6), Prairie Falcon (1), Red-breasted 
Nuthatch (2), Winter Wren (2), Marsh Wren (1), Northern Mockingbird (2), Fox 
Sparrow (3), Rusty Blackbird (85), Common Grackle (3), and Purple Finch (3). 
Four species were seen in the past 3 days but not found on the count day: the 
GadxMall hybrid (cw), Greater Prairie-Chicken (cw), Norther! 

 n Goshawk (cw), and White-winged Dove (cw). A near miss was Northern Bobwhite 
with only a single individual detected (1), down from a peak count of 1,041 in 
1982. Upland gamebirds remain low with zero Ring-necked Pheasants down from a 
peak count of 87 in 1985 and cw Greater Prairie-Chickens down from a peak count 
of 132 in 1980. On the other hand, geese showed elevated populations. Our 
count of Snow Geese was 48,869, well above the median annual counts of 0-200 
birds for the half century between 1949-1999. Outright misses of species not 
recorded on the count but detected in >50% of past CBC years included: Northern 
Pintail, pheasants, Wilson's Snipe, Loggerhead Shrike, Bewick's Wren, Swamp 
Sparrow, and Brewer's Blackbird. Thanks to Northern Flint Hills Audubon for 
sponsoring the compilation and all of the participants who joined the count!

I participated in the Brazos Bend State Park CBC today with my brother Fred 
and 11 others in our group. Our best birds were a Northern Parula and a 
Zone-tailed Hawk which was new to the count. Hundreds of crows making quite 
the ruckus (750 estimate) and lots of Tree Swallows, a Least Grebe, and 
lots of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were interesting to see here. It had 
poured yesterday and the birding in our area was a bit slow with no geese, 
few sparrows and few waterfowl. I thought the White Ibis and numbers of 
blackbirds at dusk more than made up for it. I had a blast and found it 
very interesting to do a non Kansas count.

BTW, at the end of the count Susan and James Barnes came up and said they 
had noticed my KOS stuff and to say HI to everyone in Kansas. For you who 
don't know they are from Wichita and served many years on the board.

We ran the Wichita CBC today, and despite the great weather the results were 
somewhat lackluster with 90 species recorded by the 18 participants plus 1 
count week bird. The best bird of the day was found by someone who was not even 
a count participant...Gene's Franklin's gull in the Best Buy parking lot he 
posted about earlier! Other than that, there were no unusual species, and 
finding grassland species continues to get tougher on this largely urban count. 
However, dark geese numbers were off the charts, with over 38,000 Canada Geese 
and over 9,000 Cackling, setting new records by a wide margin. We had a record 
number of Cooper's Hawks also with 13. 4 were in Maple Grove cemetery (making 
finding birds there somewhat challenging), with one harassing a Barred Owl that 
made for quite a show.

Pittman, McHugh, Rader, Hobbs et. al.... see below.  As far as I know, 
it has been a long time since anyone made a run at breaking ay of the 
Kansas Big days by month.  The current slate at the ABA site is blank 
for all months for Kansas.  I believe that teams I was on had at the 
records of Jan, Feb, March and September.  I'll get those four months 
loaded but that will leave eight to go that I had no participation in.


-------- Original Message --------

	

	

	

	



Hi Pete,

The existing records were not carried over, because entering a record 
requires at least one member of the team to have an account at Listing 
Central.

If you would, please enter your Big Day records … and rest assured, that 
the blackboard won’t get wiped again. Also note that the narrative 
portion of the data entry allows images and hyperlinks.

Cheers,

-greg neise

Kansas on the 16th. They observed 5 Northern Harriers.
They observed 27 Flickers. Roger noted "The flicker count was wild. We
picked up 8 as singles and a couple pairs and then out in the NW quarter of
original wetlands we had a flock of 19! in several trees close together -
totally nuts!"
They observed a Merlin.
They had one Winter Wren and Purple Finch.
They counted 150 Eastern Meadowlarks. Roger Noted "The 150 meadowlarks were
all in one HUGE flock. Many seen had dark streaks on head, all seen well
have white malars and several were actually singing partial songs for
Eastern."

The Snowy Egret that has been at Sedgwick County Park (this is in

afternoon.  So at least we have it for count week for the Wichita CBC 
this coming Saturday.  I don't know if this species has been recorded on 
a Kansas CBC before but it is certainly noteworthy.  If it hangs on till 
Saturday we will score it for the CBC, and another two weeks and it will 
be good one for my annual Jan 1 birding around town.

KS-Birders:


The Manhattan Christmas Bird Count will be held next Saturday, December 20. I 
think I have heard from most of the folks who have participated in past years 
but if there is anybody who would like to join this year, please get in touch 
with me. And if anybody in the count circle would like to do a feeder watch, I 
have some information that I can send you on how to record your data. A 
potential highlight for the Manhattan CBC will be the hybrid Gadwall x Mallard 
that is still at Rocky Ford in Riley Co. Gary Haden had a sighting of the bird 
on Friday, EJ Raynor took photos on Saturday (posted at the Kansas Birding page 
on Facebook), and Emily Weiser and I relocated the bird again today on Tuesday. 
It has been hanging around for at least 5 days and has regularly been with 
Mallards in the flooded area below the dam and about 50 m south of the parking 
lot. Sebastian Patti wrote to me that Audubon had a plate for this bird, titled 
"Brewer's Duck", so perhaps it could be considered a new species for your 
county or state lists? If you are participating in a Kansas CBC this winter, 
you might consider entering your data into eBird. The bird data are more useful 
if you keep shorter lists for each place you stop or walk instead of all 
day/all county counts. If you use the BirdLog app, you can easily enter 
multiple checklists during the day and then use the Trip Summary to get your 
tallies for the day. And the BirdLog app does offer an entry for Gadwall x 
Mallard hybrid, very convenient. I haven't used it, but the BirdsEye app is 
currently a free download for Android phones. But not iPhones, at least yet.

Six people helped out with the Dodge City CBC on Sunday 12/14. Rain,
although beneficial, hampered party hours and bird totals, as did the
typical lack of manpower. Overall, however, we did okay I think. The
highlights of the count included:



1 Barn Owl

1 Greater Roadrunner (1st count record)

3 Red-bellied Woodpeckers (very local in Ford Co and very, very rare in
circle)

1 Eastern Meadowlark



For people doing counts in southwest Kansas this year, the good news is
that during the times when the weather cooperated there actually seemed to
be birds to count, unlike the last few years! Almost 100 Harris’s Sparrows
for this count is quite good! Oddly, Junco numbers are nearly all-time lows
but I think the factors mentioned above account for that. The Dodge City
circle is making a name for itself with wintering Snow Goose and Lapland
Longspurs, with 5000+ and 7000+ each again this year, respectively. It's
always fascinating for me to watch these numbers come in for the counts in
the southwest portion of the state.


 I can’t wait for the counts next weekend after this opening act. Hope to
see you out there!

Hi all,
I got a note from Kevin Becker at the Pratt Hatchery with a photo attached of a 
female Black Scoter he had taken on 12/12/14. Apparently it has been around for 
a couple of weeks on a series of ponds in the middle of the complex, not 
visible from the road. He picked me up this morning and took me to the pond, 
where we (Kevin Becker, Brett Houdyshell and I) saw it. It was pretty skittish 
today and flew up and to another pond a few times, so we left it alone. Typical 
bird with all black/dark plumage and wings with dark head and paler gray/tan 
lower half to the face. That was one I didn't figure to see here!

All I got to say is thank goodness the day is over!! We started out with
fog, then fog and drizzle, wind, but around 60. Around 2 the rains came and
poured down. Around 6, the thunderstorms went through. Despite all that, we
did get 96 species. As Kevin put it, it was a day of 1s and 2s. 1 of this
species and 2 of that one. We think the cold November drove a lot of birds
out of the area. We only had 800+ Harris's Sparrows. One party had no Am.
Tree Sparrows. Probably the best bird was a Western Grebe. Probably the same
one that has been at the lake for 2-3 weeks.

I hope counts have better weather.

From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>
Date: Sun, 14 Dec 2014 15:06:20 -0600
Hi Folks,

This morning about sunrise, I was awakened by the call of a close Great Horned 
Owl. I live in Riverside, the local name for an area near the center of 
Wichita, obviously named for the 2 rivers that come together here, just down 
the street from me. We have a lot of trees, for Kansas, and this includes Oak 
Park which is just North of me. Hearing this Great Horned Owl this morning 
makes me wonder if it was the one I saw in Oak Park a few days ago. This is the 
time of the year the Great Horned seem to get together in Oak Park for mating, 
strangely they don't normally nest in Oak Park, probably because the Cooper's 
Hawks make such a fuss if they do. 


I saw my first winter Bald Eagle soaring above Oak Park the other day, but 
other bird watchers have been telling me for weeks, there are many Bald Eagles 
active in Wichita at this time, mostly along the Big Arkansas River South of 
Kellogg Ave. Although, the Twin Lakes Bald Eagle pair haven't been successful, 
during the last few years, Wichita has other Bald Eagle nests that have been 
successful. 


I spent a few hours in Oak Park yesterday, wondering what was about. I was 
happy to find a Hermit Thrush, many Towhees including a Eastern, Flickers 
galore, Robins, Blue Jays, Juncos, Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatchs, many 
Carolina Wrens, Chickadees, Gobs of Starlings, White-throated Sparrows, Downy 
Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Brown-creeper, 
Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Golden-crowned Kinglets. I didn't find my little 
buddies, the Winter Wrens. They were there a few weeks ago, I probably just 
missed them. Some bird watchers have seen Orange-crowned Warblers. The Barred 
Owls that are usually in Oak Park, make themselves scarce when the Great Horned 
Owls are around, so I didn't see any, also missed Cedar Waxwings. 


Out of the Little Arkansas River, I have seen the standard guys, Canada Geese, 
Mallard Ducks, Wood Ducks and others including Great-blue Heron, Kingfisher, Dc 
Cormorant, Hooded Merganser and a few Ring-billed Gulls. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

Gene Young and I braved the foggy weather and went on a  preCBC scouting
today. The lake area was pretty fogged in and you really couldn't see very
well. Nothing really exciting. It may be a dreary count tomorrow. As hard as
we tried today, we could only come up with 42 species. It has been a long
time since we have had these kind of conditions for a CBC.

KSbirders,
I had a tip from Todd Becker this afternoon that he had seen a western
grebe at Marion reservoir for the past week. It is easily seen from the dam
lookout, close to the rocks. Very few ducks or geese on the lake.
The Hillsboro sewage ponds had 8 or so redheads along with mallards,
shovelers and Canadas.
At Marion lake there were also few ducks, only 3 lesser scaup, a
pied-billed grebe and 40-50 coots.
A stop south of Marion on 150th produced the hoped for pileated woodpecker
plus a pair of dueting barred owls.
good birding this afternoon,

Another "pairing" that might provide a match is mallard x widgeon. Full plumage 
males have cream colored cheeks and head. Smaller. Grey bodied. A lot more 
"skittery" behavior than mallards. Not sure about head-bobbing.

I went on a blitzkrieg birding trip to Morton county today, driving down late 
last night through 6 hours of fog. 


Despite the fog not lifting till after 1:00, the birding was pretty decent.

CBC people should expect lots of raptors.
Highlights:

Shelterbelt/Cemetery:
Cooper's Hawk
Sharp-shinned Hawk
Ww Dove 

Middle Spring:
Chestnut-collared Longspur (heard only)

Point of Rocks
Brown Creeper

Work Station
Ladder-backed WP

Scattered across many backroads:
Ferruginous Hawk 6+
Rough-legged Hawk 4+
Merlin 2
Prairie Falcon 1
Golden Eagle 1 (along OK border road)
Short-eared Owl 1
Raven sp. 1
Lapland Longspur 100's

There was virtually nothing on the sewage ponds.

Good birding

Dr. Sandercock had one here in March this year:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S13391103

They winter along the Gulf Coast so I think your bird was a late migrant
while Brett's bird was an early migrant. Although they have been seen in
Kansas during the winter months:

http://ebird.org/ebird/map/lecspa?neg=true&env.minX=-103.187021259375&env.minY=36.22287634848491&env.maxX=-91.937021259375&env.maxY=40.685515774272794&zh=true&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=12-2&bmo=12&emo=2&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2014 


So I'd say they probably rarely over-winter in the state.

morning and had a very bright buffy sparrow flush in front of me and land
in small brush clump, then drop down out of sight. Likely presence of dog
prevented me from pishing it back up. Habitat was right, behavior was
right, color was right and much brighter than our usual winter sparrows.
Just didn't put binoculars on bird to confirm. Within the Junction City CBC
circle, so Chuck, maybe it's worth checking your LeConte's hot spots for
one. Also COMMON LOON in West Rolling Hills area.

Single short eared owl seen well at dusk but no pix, flying and flapping around 
looking for a rodent dinner..... 

Hoping it stays around for the count :)

Subject: Prairie Falcon, Perry Lake
From: Al Schirmacher <alschirmacher AT LIVE.COM>
Date: Fri, 12 Dec 2014 12:29:13 -0600
Second surprise of the day: while changing positions to confirm possible 
California Gull at Perry Lake, a large falcon flew in, spooking the lot:(. 


It landed, I noticed a more characteristic head pattern of a Prairie than a 
Peregrine. Then it flew, and the dark "armpits" confirmed. 


So, why's a Prairie hanging around this part of the state, harassing gulls of 
all things? 


(But I am not familiar with their behavior, coming from the nort' country)

White-winged Scoter, Jeffrey Energy Center, auxiliary lake, very distant scope 
looks, hanging between flock of goldeneyes & thousands of snow geese. 


Rough-legged Hawk also present, otherwise quiet so far.

Subject: Townsend's Solitaire(S) - Shawnee Mission Park - JOCO
From: Christine Kline <birdsecretary AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:39:01 -0600
Dear birding friends,
Mike Stewart and I made the run to Shawnee Mission Park early this
afternoon.  We not only found the Townsend's Solitaire, but we found TWO
Townsend's Solitaires!  Mike located the first bird in the trees near the
brush pile and the fence.  After about 15 minutes, we had two of them in the
tree right along the trail.  They were flying back and forth between the
tree on the trail and the trees line that ran south through the field to the
brush pile.  We viewed them for about 25 minutes.  

The best way to get to them is to park in the lot off Barkley Drive south of
the dam.  Follow the paved trail past the bike sculpture until it turns east
and comes to a "Y."  The birds were in the line of trees that run south from
the trail where the bench is to the brush pile.  (Not great instructions,
but hopefully this will help.)  The solitaires were hanging with Eastern
Bluebirds who were chasing them at times and about three Northern
Mockingbirds.  

Two lifers for me today!  (Including the Red-necked Grebe on the Missouri
side.)

Observed a Townsend's Solitaire around 3:00pm this afternoon at Shawnee
Mission Park in Johnson County. The bird was seen below the dam in the south
field. Specifically it was along the south fence lines near the large brush
pile.

Hi all,The three White-winged Scoters were seen at the Wilson Lake dam this 
afternoon by Jenn Rader and I. There were also two Long-tailed Ducks with them 
and around 1500 Common Goldeneye along the dam face as well. Good count week 
birds for the Wilson CBC this weekend!

This morning the solitaire was calling at the streamway trail access 
parking lot south of the dam. Nick and I spotted it calling from the 
tallest trees on the left between the trail and the road. It visited the 
ceders next to the parking lot covered in berries along with several juncos.

Subject: Neosho County ramblings 12-10-14
From: Andrew Burnett <aburnett AT MAGNUMSYSTEMS.COM>
Date: Thu, 11 Dec 2014 20:11:49 +0000
Took a day off and rambled the county yesterday attempting to locate a few 
birds missing from my year list. 


Searched most of the publically accessible appropriate habitat for a 
Red-breasted Nuthatch. I did not find one. I was not surprised as according to 
eBird there were a few sightings in late Nov, but not much since. But I had to 
try. 


Neosho Wildlife Area - Mallard central.. can't throw a rock without hitting one 
on the refuge pool. Ok.. not that many, but a lot. 20k-30k present continually 
area wide. Likely some black ducks in there, but didn't have the patience to 
sit and scope them. Last week I did manage to find my first county Purple Finch 
at NWA. Two were feeding on some berries. Otherwise hunters are dominating the 
landscape. 


Lake Parsons - Pretty sparse water birding here since I caught some illegal 
duck hunting taking place. Most birds left and didn't return. Siskins and 
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers are pretty consistently found in the pine forest 
area. I keep waiting on a rarer owl or crossbill to show up there. 


Other - Had a Smith's Longspur associating with some horned larks for while in 
a field at my house. Classic watch winding call given in flight. Also struck by 
the numbers of Sharpies around this winter. I saw 7 or 8 yesterday. 


Remaining year targets - Eastern Screech Owl, Merlin, & Red-breasted Nuthatch. 
Hoping some of the rarer gulls being reported up north push their way down 
here.

have been many of them around, but my timing had not been successful

Gene's message came in as I was looking this up on Birds of North America

There are six recognized subspecies, roughly three of which are regular in 
North America. C. c. roselaari winters on the Pacific coast from So California 
down to Central America so I wouldn't think we'd have many wander through 
Kansas. C. c. rufa, according to the BNA account breeds in the low latitudes of 
Arctic Canada; winters from the Gulf of Mexico south to e. South America. 

C. c. islandica breeds in the high Arctic of Canada and Greenland and winters 
in western Europe and around the Mediterranean. All the other subspecies breed 
in Siberia and winter in Australia or Africa. 


I'd guess that most of the Red Knots we get in Kansas are rufa.

It's the rufa subspecies that is listed (http://www.fws.gov/northeast/redknot/) 
and I'm not sure which subspecies occurs in KS, but probably roselaari, 
although I would't be shocked if rufa does as well. However, not many 
specimens, and I'm not sure they've been examind to subsp.

I've always believed in karma, or lucky streaks, when birding. A couple of
years ago I was on a 6 month hot streak. Apparently I currently am mired in
a bit of a slump. Sunday afternoon while driving in Geary County on Fort
Riley, I saw some birds land in cedars on the east side of road, one
alighting on a tree top striking a pose of a Townsend's Solitaire. As I was
mulling the scene driving, my son looking out to the west got all excited
about two sparrow-sized birds flashing big patches of white on the top
sides of their wings as they flew. Turning around to further investigate,
the flying birds were not re-located. I don't know of anything other than
snow buntings that makes sense for that description. As for my solitaire,
closer examination found all birds to be European starlings. Guess I'll
stick near him on CBC's.

I returned this afternoon to look for the buntings. Found a flock of 40 or
so longspurs with a few horned larks mixed in. I tried hard to turn one
into a Smith's, but can only claim Lapland longspurs. Buntings still
elusive.

Enjoying December birding. It also feels like you don't
HAVE to get out before 9am and to enjoy warmth and sun it's nice to change
it up.  Today while trying spot a kinglet I was hearing I was joyfully
distracted by two bald eagles with talons locked in that thrilling
deadfall called 'cartwheeling'.  Tremendous against the blue sky.

I am also enjoying the investment of the heater in the birdbath bringing
more variety to the feeding area.  I counted 7 cedar waxwings a couple of
days ago and often get robins,bluebirds and mocking birds as well.
