If you saw the Wichita Eagle today you saw that orioles and jelly feeding were 
front page news, thanks to an article by Michael Pierce. Earlier in the summer 
I reported on a comparison I did between grape jelly and orange marmalade. The 
orioles (as well as the House Finches and robins) definitely preferred grape. 
Since then I have done two more trials. First white grape jelly versus regular 
purple grape. Again the purple won hands down. So color appears to be a factor. 
Then I tried blackberry vs grape. They looked exactly alike to my eyes, but the 
birds still went for the grape, so they must have been able to smell a 
difference. They didn't sample the blackberry and then switch, they just went 
straight to the grape. 

Tom Flowers told me they like grape because that is what I taught them to like, 
and I'm sure that is true. The Cornell website does state that they prefer dark 
fruits as that is an indicator of ripeness. Interesting that they can be so 
discriminating. Surprisingly I still have cardinals eating jelly, too. Not sure 
about their preferences - they don't show up often enough. If was a good 
scientist I would sit with a notebook and quantify all this, but hey - I'm 
retired!

 I can see why they might want to split the Northern Cardinal into 2 or even 3 
separate species, but from what I've read, I think that splitting it into 6 
separate species is oversplitting. So I'm very glad that they have not yet 
decided and are taking their time in deciding just how much splitting is really 
warranted. Thankfully none of the proposed splitting would affect the names of 
cardinals in Kansas. --------------Ken Kinman Hays, Kansas

From: Chuck & Jaye Otte <otte2 AT COX.NET>
Date: Sun, 5 Jul 2015 21:27:43 -0500
The annual report of the American Ornithologists Union Checklist Committee 
was released last week. I have often referred to this as the "annual fruit 
basket upset report". While many birders don't really care, this is the group 
that determines what is a species, what isn't a species, what species may be 
lumped or split, what's the correct scientific name and what order are the 
birds in the checklist. 

First of all, the full report can be found at:

http://www.aoucospubs.org/doi/pdf/10.1642/AUK-15-73.1

Much of this year's report won't impact Kansas birds much at all. 

The order of the Buteo hawks on the Kansas list shuffles slightly and will now 
be:

Harris´s Hawk (not really a Buteo but a Parabuteo)
Gray Hawk
Red-shouldered Hawk
Broad-winged Hawk
Swainson´s Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
Rough-legged Hawk
Ferruginous Hawk

Caracara's have been in their own subfamily but they are now included in the 
subfamily that includes falcons (won't affect anything on the Kansas 
Checklist).

American Tree Sparrow is removed from the Spizella genus and placed in it's 
own genus, Spizelloides, based on DNA studies that show it is not closely 
related to the true Spizella sparrows.

There were a bunch of changes in tropical and Hawaiian species that 
obviously doesn't impact the Kansas checklist. 

At the end of the report is always an intriguing paragraph on "Proposals 
considered but not accepted". Those that could impact Kansas in the future 
include:
Separation of Northern Harrier and Hen Harrier
A two way split of Painted Bunting
A six way split of Northern Cardinal
Changing American Pipit to Buff-bellied Pipit

With a little digging you can usually find the actual proposal for each of 
these 

on the internet.

Any changes that impact the Kansas Checklist will be made in the upcoming 
late summer update of the County Checklists.

Subject: Baker Wetlands survey
From: Daniel Larson <birdkansa AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 5 Jul 2015 17:35:00 -0500
On July 1, Roger Boyd, Scott Kimball, Kylee Sharp, Sam Richards and Dan
Larson surveyed Baker Wetlands, Lawrence Kansas from 7:30 to 11:30. We
found 71 species. Almost all species were expected but still good to find
that many. We found 3 Northern Shovelers. We did find some shorebirds
apparently moving back this way. Besides Killdeers we observed a Solitary
Sandpiper and a Lesser Yellowlegs The water birds were mostly observed in
the new area east..
A couple of misses were the Least Bittern observed earlier this year and
Pied-billed Grebe which had been seen on a nest. The nest was there but no
Pied-billed Grebes were observed.
There were 223 Cliff Swallows with many nesting on the bridge over the
Wakarusa that was Louisiana Street but is now closed.
The complete list is at the site below.

Baker Wetlands is closed due to construction. Heavy equipment continues to
move everywhere.
Sorry this is a bit late.

Thanks

I suspect that if you saw a large white heron, it is more likely it was a Great 
Egret. Also in regards to the Northern Shrike- this would also be quite a 
sighting at this time of year. They would more likely have been Loggerhead 
Shrikes, which are more commonly found this time of year. Still fun sightings, 
and looking forward to your many photos to come!

sighting at this time of year. They would more likely have been Loggerhead 
Shrikes, which are more commonly found this time of year. Still fun sightings, 
and looking forward to your many photos to come!

This morning I birded Bourbon County looking for find an assortment of breeding 
species. Bourbon has great potential due to its wide mix of available habitats. 


Here were the highlights........

Bourbon SFL - Kentucky Warbler, Eastern Towhee.............

Prairies S & E of Bourbon SFL - Henslow's Sparrow's Painted Bunting, Blue 
Grosbeak, Tree Swallow, (These prairies are roughly 5-7 square miles of 
continuous native grasses that appear to of not been disturbed due to rocky 
ground, they make for a fun and unique habitat in the 9 county SEK area) 
......... 


Elm Creek Lake - Common Yellowthroats, Blue Grosbeaks..........

Lake Ft. Scott - Prothonotary Warblers, Pileated Woodpecker...........

Rock Creek Lake - Rough-winged Swallows, 2 Painted buntings, Eastern 
Towhee......... 


Gunn Park - Fish Crow, Acadian Flycatcher

Ft. Scott town area - Western Kingbird in downtown area, Wood Thrush(east side 
of town), Mississippi Kite observed feeding over east part of town. 


All in all 77 Species seen in about 4 hours of birding. Great day of birding 
for the summer season.

While at the LaRoche Baseball Complex S. of Ft Scott in Bourbon County this
morning (a fantastically beautiful facility built by Adam LaRoche, a pitcher
for the Chicago White Sox who is from Ft. Scott) I observed a nesting pair
of Western Kingbirds apparently feeding young in the nest.  I do not see the
Western Kingbird marked as a breeding species in Bourbon County.    They are
in a young Pin Oak on the west side of the stadium in easy view from the
stands.

I think the bulk of the Wichita heronry has moved to the Sedgwick Co Zoo.
This was a family trip and birding wasn't the main reason for my trip, so I
didn't do a detailed search and count, but I estimated over 700 birds
including Great Egrets (250 or more), Cattle Egrets (425 or more), and
Black-crowned Night-Herons (45 or more). The Cattle Egret and Night Heron
nests were over by the Africa and Australia sections. The Great Egret nests
were clustered in a couple of tall cottonwoods by the rhino and giraffe
exhibits. There were lots of nestlings bobbing up in the nests begging for
food. There were also a few fly-by Snowy Egrets, but I didn't explore to
see if they were nesting.

I wonder if this situation poses a problem for the zoo? I noticed
that several exhibits were closed down because of threat of avian disease
spread from native birds. If anybody has any more information or has birded
the zoo recently, so we can compare estimates it would be great to hear
from you.

There was also a Gray Catbird in the North America section that looked at
us from the creek bed 6 ft. away.

Birding Quivira this morning ad having a grand time.  There was an American
Bittern standing in open water.  Plovers running along the road hunkering
down while fluttering their wings and fanning their tails.  The Q is a
birding jewel.

Until . . .

The guy that checks the pumping stations feels the need to BLAST down
170th.  And I mean blast.  This was followed closely by a farmer traveling
at a goodly speed pulling a horse in a trailer.

There are juvenile birds around and quite a few hanging out in or near the
road.  And for a few moments my birding bliss is punctuated by severe
irritation.  It is disrespectful, dangerous and ridiculous.

Thanks for listening.  Venting complete.  Back to peaceful birding!

  Have you ever been in a group of people with the same cellphone ringtones
going of at the same time and maybe not knowing whether it is your phone or
not?  I have had this experience and thought that a way to make nature more
a part of our daily lives would be to change the phone ringtone and
increase awareness of our natural world.  There are many sites that have
free ringtones and Kentucky is one state with ringtones gone wild.  You
could have a free ringtone of the Bobwhite, Wood thrush, American Robin or
other birds, elk, or even frogs.  Why not consider getting a little nature
into our electronic world with a ringtone that reminds people that there
are other species out there that we need to think about?  Most likely your
ringing cellphone will not sound like all the others. Why not get out of
the box and start a new national trend of =E2=80=9CRinging In The Birds=E2=

Hi all,
I spent an hour and a half at the Big Salt Marsh of Quivira NWR this morning 
and saw many of the birds mentioned by Barry. I did some number counts and 
estimates and had the following birds of interest: 

Snowy Plover - 225 - there were in most every flat along 170th Rd, and as Barry 
said, many young present. Probably a low estimateAm Avocet - 50 - probably low 
as I didn't stay around where they were obviously distressed in protecting 
babiesBlack-necked Stilt - 80 - same comments as for avocetsGreater Yellowlegs 
- 1 seen with BN Stilts along 170th Rd. Large bird with slightly upturned bill 
and yellow legsLesser Yellowlegs - 45 seen along 170th and Wildlife Drive loop. 
Probably low count as there were more in the open pockets along the cattails 
too.Willet - 1 seen with avocets and stilts - raised its wings, showing bold 
black and white patternLeast Sandpipers - 175 - one large of of 120 and several 
others along 170thSemipalmated Sandpiper - 2 seen with LeastsWhite-rumped 
Sandpiper - 22 counted in one flock, seen well, with long wings, dark legs and 
streaking along flanksPectoral Sandpiper - 6 seen with peepsWilson's Phalarope 
- 70 - many on flats with other shorebirds and some pairs acting distressed as 
in guarding youngLeast Tern - 5, including what looked to be one on a nest 
scrapeBlack Tern - 12Forster's Tern - 2Mottled Duck - 1 presumed female with 
female Mallard on west side of Wildlife Drive along close cattails. Had darker 
body, pale neck, head and crown, plain olive bill (with no black on top) and a 
dark purple/blue speculum with no white bordersRedhead - 170 - one large flock 
of over 100 on north side of 170th and smaller flocks and pairs along Wildlife 
Drive loop.Am. Bittern - 1 out in the open on the flats 

Great morning to look around!

Summer drying has begun in earnest, especially notable in the flats along 
NE 170th Street north of Big Salt Marsh.  Barring any significant rainfall 
over the next few days, visitors will likely see a lot of dry sand, with 
water continuing to retreat in those flats (the large water units, 
however, are still full).

We have noticed the usual return of shorebirds to the flats that occurs in 
late June/early July.  Yesterday's check showed dozens of Lesser 
Yellowlegs and Least Sandpipers, along with a handful of Long-billed 
Dowitchers, Pectoral and Stilt Sandpipers, and even a late White-rumped 
Sandpiper.  Breeders such as Snowy Plover, Black-necked Stilt, and 
American Avocet are now present with young.

Also notable was the presence of a male singing Painted Bunting, hard to 
detect in the last month or so, at the east edge (south side) of the tree 
tunnel along NE 170th, 1/2 mile west of the NE 105th Ave junction.  Duck 
broods are continuing to be seen throughout, the most recent being a Wood 
Duck brood in Park Smith and a Redhead brood in Big Salt Marsh.

Dear County listers,

The deadline for this months county listing will be Tuesday June 7th, 2015.

I'd like to ask a favor. Please only send listings that change. I copy all 
your listings to my ledger. Then when I go to update it in the spreadsheet 
find that there are no changes to some of the counties.

The email address to send your listing to is markeland AT kc.rr.com 

The only rule for Kansas county listing is you must have a minimum of 75
species to list in a county. Please send me any updates that you may have
as well as those of your friends that are not on KsBirds. Also, you may
send me your Kansas Life List totals and your totals for 2015. 

To minimize the chance of a virus getting into KsBirds the monthly update
is forwarded to the list owners to post to the list serve. Whenever you
have a change or submission to make to your county lists be sure to send
the change to me and I will do my best not to leave your listing out.

If you have any questions about County listing just drop me an email.

On most of today's smart phones you can set up different ringtones for 
different people or groups. My sister has mine as an eagle ring, some 
others in the family are generic song birds.

Good morning birders,

I had a Black-billed Cuckoo singing this morning on the corner of Stockdale
Park Road and Blue River Hills Road on the west side of Tuttle Creek.  It
was giving its classic fast-paced "coo-coo-coo-coo" song.

Four of us did some mid summer birding in and around Brown’s Park near 
Abilene, the Rock Springs Camp and Walla Walla Road near Junction City. We saw 
over 50 species with highlights including great looks at Indigo Buntings, 
Summer Tanagers, a Red Shouldered Hawk, a Barred Owl, several Yellow Billed 
Cuckoos, an Upland Sandpiper, Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and at Walla Walla 
Road, a Painted Bunting. This is the second year in a row that we have seen a 
Painted Bunting on Walla Walla Road so presumably the species is nesting in 
this area. We also probably saw and heard a Scarlet Tanager in the Rock Springs 
Camp but it was elusive so we didn’t get the good confirming look that we 
wanted.

On the way to Colorado the Wichita Audubon Soc. field trip group did a 
few cameo stops in Sherman and Cheyenne Counties on June 20.  The big 
playa 2 miles south of Goodland (Sherman County) had 8 American Avocets 
and a few species of waterfowl, most notably single Ruddy Duck and 
Redhead.  This playa is holding a lot of water and is highly recommended 
as a stop for any birders traveling I-70 with 15 minutes to spare, 
especially as southbound shorebirds begin to arrive over the next few 
weeks.  There were several playas along K-27 in Cheyenne County.  One of 
these had 23 Wilson's Phalaropes, one Yellow-headed Blackbird, several 
Green-winged Teal and a few other waterfowl.  Also a more 
permanent-looking wetland a few miles sw of Bird City hosted a pair of 
American Coots on a nest.  This is a first county nesting record for 
this species in Cheyenne County. There was also an Eastern Phoebe nest 
on the bridge near the riverwalk at St. Francis.  There was a good 
variety of birds at the bridge over the Arikaree River near the 
tri-state marker but we were running late and didn't linger there long.

June 27, 2015, Pittsburg, Crawford Co., KS - Precisely 6:50 P.M., while 
sitting on our patio this evening I thought I saw a Mississippi Kite 
disappear behind the trees.  Seconds later another Mississippi Kite 
appeared overhead, then another and then another.  As they circled 
overhead in and out of the trees I counted at least seven (7) kites.  
They spent some time overhead so I made a dash for my binoculars and I 
did managed to see some with barred tails, probably sub adults, as they 
drifted off the the southwest. Their aerial antics of catching insects 
were easily seen when backlit by the late evening sun as they then 
brought the prey to their beak while in flight.

Could this indicate a breeding population in the area or just migrating 
groups from elsewhere?  Any comments?

From: Paul Griffin <pgriffin1 AT COX.NET>

Hi Folks,

It is now chiggers time in Oak Park. If you are thinking about going over there 
be aware, and it appears this year is heavier than normal. Every green leaf 
probably has chiggers, so avoid them. But, there are also a lot of mosquitoes, 
because we have had a lot of rain. And because Oak Park is now a hot area for 
insects, every other similar place in Kansas is probably the same. 


Maybe with all of those insects in Oak Park, is one of the reasons there are so 
many hummingbirds in Oak Park this year. I estimate at least 10 female 
Ruby-throated hummingbirds are in the NE corner of Oak Park nesting. At least 2 
males are with them. I have 1 control nectar feeder in Oak Park right now, and 
by watching it I can estimate how many hummingbirds are in there. When the 
hummingbirds leave the feeder generally returning to their nest, they appear to 
fly away at different directions on the compass, indicating to me the different 
nest sights and quickly disappear in the heavy foliage. 


The Coopers mating pair, I think their 13th year, have a least 4 nestlings this 
year. They are getting bigger, and are starting to get dark feathers. 


The Barred owl mating pair, had at least 1 nestling earlier this spring, and 
I'm hearing at least 3 Barred Owls calling in Oak Park from time to time. 


Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin

For the past week, Baltimore Oriole males have been bringing their offspring to 
the jelly feeders we have suspended above our deck. Quite a colorful & amusing 
sight as the youngsters figure it out! Prior to this, we hadn't seen any 
Orioles for nearly a month. 


In addition, House Wrens are nesting, Eastern Bluebirds have hatchlings in the 
bluebird box and Carolina Wrens have hatchlings in a hanging geranium. 


A Yellow-billed Cuckoo appeared yesterday to check out the scene near the jelly 
& mealworm feeders (I guess). I love it when birds oblige you with effortless 
birding!

From: Don Kazmaier <dlknktk AT KANS.COM>
Date: Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:28:47 -0500
Friday evening found us and a couple of friends south of Larned looking for
birds.  We came across a Roadrunner in the road being harassed by Mocking
birds.  His/her escape tactic was to fly up to a tree along the road that
must have had a Mockingbird nest, as 6-8 Mockingbirds attacked the "Roadie"
 He promptly flew out of the tree followed by his "new found friends", who
actually knocked him over before he found refuge in a nearby sand hill plumb
bush!  Glad there were witnesses.   Also had another Roadrunner south of
Garfield again earlier in the day.    Donnie K. in Larned

On June 17, Roger Boyd, Kylee Sharp and Sam Richards surveyed Baker
Wetlands, Lawrence, Kansas.
Baker Wetlands is closed due to construction.
A Harris's  Sparrow was seen well. Very unusual for this time of year.
A hooded Merganser was still there.
The egrets were there in force with 11 Little Blue Herons and one Cattle
Egret.
Three Blue Grosbeaks were found.
Many summer expected birds were there. The complete list can be found on
the site below.

Subject: Mississippi Kites in Pittsburg, Crawford Co., KS.
From: Robert Mangile <rmangile AT COX.NET>
Date: Thu, 18 Jun 2015 19:00:39 -0500
Over the past few years Mississippi Kites have been seen around 
Pittsburg, Crawford County, KS - enough to speculate that sooner or 
later someone would find them nesting locally.  And last year I did get 
a report of nesting Mississippi Kites west of Pittsburg.  At 12:25 P.M. 
today, June 18, 2015, I spotted two Mississippi Kites flying near the 
intersection of West Quincy and US69 bypass west of Pittsburg.  This is 
the general area of where the nesting pair was reported last year.  
Perhaps it is just a matter of time before they are seen with some 
regularity in our area.

I frequently travel through the Flint Hills with Cassoday being the mid
point.  Yesterday, I counted 50 Upland Sandpipers along that route.  I
usually do well to see 12 or 15.  It seemed to indicate a successful

     Yesterday we watched, for the first time in Ogden, a pair of 
Catbirds foraging around the in neighbor's bushes--this is a first in 
our yard ever that we witnessed--we /have/ heard them in the area 
before.  We have seen very few Indigo Buntings this year but both the 
Orchard and Baltimore remain in the area but now they are not visiting 
the feeder but we can hear them in our trees as well as observe them fly!
     Our four Hummers remain busy as well as young Blue Birds from our 
nest Box-- the few Martins are sporadically visiting and nests had 
started but nothing committed here in Ogden.

The fact that they had it in view with another Ibis and its posture adds
weight to this claim. Hopefully, someone can make run a for it. They may
stick around for awhile.

Subject: Fork tail flycatcher
Ha! Bet that got everyone's attention! I do need some info on them however. I know a few years back there was one in Leavenworth Co. Does anyone know the dates it was here and duration of stay? I ask because a birding friend is positive he saw one in N. Wab. Co. North of town on Maple Hill Rd. about a mile and a half. Sitting on fence. He described it down to the inward pointing tail feathers and that the tail seemed noticeably longer than a scissor tail. He is quite familiar with scissortails. From my reading about the species, they are great summer time wanderers, so who knows. Thanks for the info in advance. Dan Hoobler Amateur Naturalist Pott. Co.

A heads-up for any birders heading out to Quivira (or thinking about it) 
this coming Saturday:  we are conducting a Bioblitz refuge-wide, using 
researchers from various colleges.  Thus we are collecting data on as many 
plants and animals as we can over a 24-hour period.  Bird observation data 
is welcome.  If you plan to be here, you can contribute your bird lists by 
dropping them by the Environmental Education Classroom (in the center of 
the Refuge) before 3:00 pm.  As of now, we don't have any specific plans 
to gather up groups of visiting birders and take them birding, but you are 
welcome to check in at the EEC to see who is out or planning to go out and 
bird.  If you are interested and plan to be here, and want to contribute, 
either call 620-486-2393 and ask for me or respond directly to this 
email.  Thanks and good birding!

Subject: Least Tern behaviour and flooded nests
From: Bob Gress <bobgress AT COX.NET>
Date: Mon, 15 Jun 2015 19:52:43 -0500
The five inches of rain north of Wichita last night flooded out the 7 Least
Tern nests on the Arkansas River.  The morning started with 7 active nests
containing 20 eggs.  The last egg should have been laid today.  When I got
there at 9:00 a.m. the river was rapidly rising and I knew the terns were in
trouble.  After checking the nests I retreated and watched the nests from a
distance with my scope.  The first nest washed out at 9:40 a.m. and the
adult sat on the eggs until the water flooded the nest.  The adult then
hovered and flew over the nest for several minutes before joining the other
adults in the air over the colony.  The second nest washed out around 10:00
a.m. and again the adult sat on the nest until the water flooded the eggs.
The adult flew a few feet and sat on the sandbar with her head high and
obviously excited.  She hovered over the nest location only a few times
before being lost with the other terns in flight.  The third nest-flooding
was heartbreaking to watch.    The water flooded into the nest and the bird
fluttered over the nest for a few seconds before landing back in the water
at the nest site.  For at least a minute she used her tail and wings and
bill in an attempt to keep the eggs together.  She could be seen stretching
her neck to attempt to pull back a misplaced egg.  She stayed until the
current washed her off the eggs and then she hovered, settled back in the
water over the nest briefly, and then landed on the closest sand to watch.
Her head was high and obviously confused.  She then flew into the circling
flock of terns.  The next three nests I could not see from my observation
spot.  The last nest was washed out around 3:00 p.m.  It was located on the
very highest point of the sandbar.   We'll see if they attempt to renest
when the water retreats.

Subject: Western Kingbird nest in Butler Co.
From: Atcha Nolan <qanolan AT COX.NET>
Date: Mon, 15 Jun 2015 11:30:27 -0500
It was neat to see a Western Kingbird feeding young in it's nest this 
morning along the walking path through Prairie Trails golf course in El 
Dorado. Other birds were: Robins, Brown Thrasher (which may have had a nest 
also. It dropped down in the tree and I couldn't re-find it.), Chipping 
Sparrow, Mourning Doves, Northern Bobwhite, Starling.

Greetings All,
Diane and I went up to see all the water at Tuttle Creek Lake on Saturday. We 
spotted one white pelican at River Pond. It had a cord perhaps 18 to 24 inches 
long dangling from one foot.

Mike Watkins of the US Army Corps of Engineers has kept track of Bald
Eagles since they first started nesting again in Kansas. He has over 25
years of data. He still is keeping track but with over 70 nests it is
becoming more difficult and would like your help. He is wanting to know if
you know of any nests that fledged Bald Eagles.

If you do please let him know. Include the number of fledged young, and any
of the following information about the nest that you can. County; nearest
Lake, River or Creek; nearest road crossing; longitude and latitude.

Please do as soon as you can, this is significant information and is much
appreciated.
Please email to

Subject: KOS in need of a newsletter editor
From: Matt Gearheart <gearheart.matt AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:07:38 -0500
Greetings,

As many of you may already know, Mark Van Horn, has been the KOS Newsletter
Editor of
the Horned Lark since January 2013.  He has graciously continued to put
together this
publication while being stationed overseas in Germany.  This summer, Mark
has
been promoted to a new position as a Battalion Operations Officer, which
will be
a significant increase of Mark's responsibilities and free time.

Therefore, we are looking for a candidate for a new newsletter editor to
follow
in Mark's boot steps.  If you are interested or know of anyone who would be
interested in this, please let myself or any of the board members know
right away.

We typically send out 4 issues of the Horned Lark each year and encourage
anyone
to submit articles, photographs, artwork, etc.
The newsletter editor does not necessarily have to be an expert in graphic
design, but
hopefully would have a connection to KOS and Kansas Birding.

Let me know if you have any questions and please pass this along.
Thanks,

Matt Gearheart
KOS President

All roads are open at Quivira, with no closures due to high water.  
However, it hasn't been taking much moisture to make some of the township 
roads slick and messy, especially west and south of Migrant's Mile.  Watch 
the weather and radar reports over the next few days to monitor rainfall.

Still a good number (2-300) shorebirds along NE 170th, including dozens of 
White-rumped Sandpipers, a few Semipalmated Sandpipers, and (surprisingly) 
2 Semipalmated Plover.  If you visit Quivira, be on the lookout for duck 
and shorebird hatchlings.  In the past week, we have observed (in 
scattered locations) Wood Duck, Killdeer, Wilson's Phalarope, and Hooded 
Merganser with young, and many more nests of Snowy Plover and American 
Avocet.  We have also seen nesting Pied-billed Grebe.  As late as Tuesday 
(6/9) a drake Cinnamon Teal was seen on Unit 28.

Subject: Least Terns in Wichita
From: Bob Gress <bobgress AT COX.NET>
Date: Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:39:21 -0500
Keep watching for Least Terns in the Wichita area.  The Least Terns are
nesting on their historical sandbar near the landfill but this year there
are only 5 active nests, each with 3 eggs.  In past years there have been
twice that number of nests.  Perhaps more will still begin to nest but it is
possible another nesting site is in the area.  Remember this sandbar is a
restricted area and no access to the colony is allowed due to their
Endangered Status.  Signs mark the area.  If you suspect a new location
please let me know so we can appropriately protect the area.  Also, the
Second Edition of A Pocket Guide to Kansas Threatened and Endangered Species
has been published this spring and free copies may be picked up by
requesting one at the front desk of the Great Plains Nature Center.

Yesterday I had just a ˝ hour or so before a meeting to bird the Benedictine
Bottoms AT Co. and easily found 5 Yellow Warblers, 6 Bell’s Vireo, and good
habitat for chat but found none.

This is the second year that the eagle pair near Wathena has raised two 
juveniles. They have been seen flapping their wings and jumping on the edge of 
the nest. Yesterday was so hot that one stood in a cool off position with wings 
open and hanging down. Each day I expect to see them out of the nest but not 
yet.

There was one seen in 2009 or 2010 over in Buchanan County Missouri. 
Never ventured, to our knowledge, into Kansas.

As far as I know, there is only one record for Kansas seen in 1979 near 
Cheyenne Bottoms. I never heard of one in Leavenworth Co.

Ha! Bet that got everyone's attention!

I do need some info on them however. I know a few years back there was one in 
Leavenworth Co. Does anyone know the dates it was here and duration of stay? 


I ask because a birding friend is positive he saw one in N. Wab. Co. North of 
town on Maple Hill Rd. about a mile and a half. Sitting on fence. He described 
it down to the inward pointing tail feathers and that the tail seemed 
noticeably longer than a scissor tail. He is quite familiar with scissortails. 


From my reading about the species, they are great summer time wanderers, so who 
knows. 


Thanks for the info in advance.

Subject: More Schermerhorn Park Black Vultures...
From: "Rader, Jennifer" <jennifer.rader AT KSOUTDOORS.COM>
Date: Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:23:03 -0500
A good "warm" afternoon to you all,

Just had two black vultures fly over Schermerhorn Park along with three
turkey vultures. Might be a okay summer to spot black vultures in S.E.
Kansas.

Not much else exciting to report this direction. We've seen blue jay,
carolina wren, eastern blue bird, and eastern phoebe fledges around the
park in the last week. We went from monsoon season straight into hot and
humid summer, and the birds are slowing down.

Finally heard my first cicadas (of any species!) for Galena today. Had seen
and heard them just to the north, a couple weeks ago, but our area has been
fairly quiet, compared to what the northeast Kansas folk are dealing with!

Happy almost summer birding!

Subject: Barn Owl nest box in use

I built a Barn Owl nest box about five years ago and put it inside a barn
near my house in RS county.  (Hole facing outside)  

Nothing until this year.  Today, I discovered four owlets.  The smallest 
was just hatched.
