We have two Barred Owl chicks that were hatched near my back yard.  They are
nearly as big as their mother and fully fledged and flying.  Every evening
around dusk, we see and hear them.  The chicks are still giving the feed
me call and expecting mom to bring them a field mouse.  She is still
working her tail off to feed them.  Interesting to watch.

I also discovered that we have a Barn Owl staying in an implement shed about
 mile from my place.  Ill be keeping an eye on her.

This afternoon near the farm, a hen Bob White came out on the gravel road
trailed by at least 5 chicks.  They were tiny-not much bigger than your
thumb but they were fast. She shooed them back into the roadside weeds
quickly as I passed.  It is good to see a second or possibly a third brood
this time of year.   We hear them calling morning and evening and even
during the day here on the farm.

From: Max Thompson <maxt AT COX.NET>

Gene Young and I surveyed the Slate Creek Wetlands this after. We recorded
54 species including 17 species of shorebirds. Notable were Buff-breasted
Sandpipers, Ruddy Turnstone, Sanderling and a very early Wilson's Snipe.
Most were on the Slate Creek Gun Club property (south end of marsh). We also
had an flock of swallows estimated to be around 10,000 birds. Power lines
were sagging from the weight plus the sky overhead was swirling with them.
We managed to pick out 2 juvenile Cave Swallows in the bunch. Tough when you
have so many birds to look through. They were also sitting on the gravel
road picking up bits of gravel. Most of them seemed to be Cliff Swallows.

The list is on eBird.

Subject: Wichita purple martin roost, requesting help
From: Michael Pearce <md_pearce AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 26 Jul 2016 02:20:34 +0000
The same as last year, this year's roost seems to be setting up in the middle 
of Old Town, just west of Joe's Old Town Bar and Grill. 



That means the dispersal, or clean up, will probably fall on the Wichita Parks 
Department. 



David McGuire seems more agreeable to trying to work with the birds, and the 
public, than other places where the birds have roosted. 



But, he's wondering if any people would be willing to volunteer to help clean 
up the mess. Below is his contact information. 



We've all wanted the birds left alone, so...

Subject: Elm Creek Lake - Bourbon Co...
From: Andrew Burnett <aburnett AT MAGNUMSYSTEMS.COM>
Date: Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:37:39 +0000
Hit Elm Creek Lake in Bourbon Co on Saturday morning. That lake rarely 
disappoints me and continues to be one of the more fun spots in SE Ks. Best 
find of the morning was 7 Henslow's Sparrows on the SE quadrant of the lake 
property extending into the Holister WA which borders the lake on the East. 
This is the most Henslow's I have found in this concentrated of an 
area(~40Acres). Unfortunately it looks as if the territory they were on will be 
baled soon as the West side of the lake is baled and the equipment is sitting 
on the east side. I wonder if the harvesting of other areas forced the birds 
into a tighter than typical area? All 7 counted were actively calling and high 
on perches as if in territorial battles. Other interesting birds were Cattle 
Egret, Green Heron, Least Sandpiper, and Pectoral Sandpiper. 


Also picked up 2 Henslow's SE of Bourbon SFL in the huge private prairie 
meadows. I also have run across Henslow's in Wilson, Woodson, & Neosho counties 
this year. 


Some dirt work is beginning at Neosho Wildlife Area. Everything remains open at 
this time. Birding is currently below average as the water is very high in the 
refuge pool. Most other pools have been drained and are dry.

Tom,

I'm not certain when it was decided to put memorials in the Bulletin, but I 
don't believe it was until the 80's. But it's possible it was earlier. I only 
know since I became a member it was discussed in Board meetings and general 
meeting. 


Some were not published since this time cause 1) KOS didn't find out until a 
year or more after passing, 2) or editor(s) didn't receive any info. 


For the record, it's not a demand for them to be published, it's that's if it's 
going to be published it should be in the Bulletin, as an honor. As I said, not 
sure when the board thought of the honor (80's, again I think), but if it was 
post death for Charter members, you don't go back and make up a memorial for 
them, you simply move forward with those that expire after the decision was 
made to honor in the Bulletin. 


Did you offer to write a memorial for Rice or Stephens? If not, why not? I knew 
Marvin, I was editor of the Bulletin at the time and saw that his memorial was 
done. There was the memorial as well as a publication list of his that were 
included. Editors have discretion as to contributions to the Bulletin, but it's 
not up to the editor to write up memorials. As long as I'm editor Tom, there 
will be some others that if they pass during my tenure, I will see that they 
have a memorial published. 


This wishy-washy implication is troublesome Tom. General membership does have a 
voice, anytime, including the general meetings. Perhaps, you could attend a 
general meeting to share your voice, haven't seen you in several years...as I 
recall always saving gas money. I think we will be meeting out west soon, 
perhaps the price of oil will still be low enough so you can indulge us all 
with your solutions. Your "As I see it...", does indicate, however, that you 
have much to offer...as does your periodic emails insulting Boards over 
time...so perhaps you should run for the Board or office? I know you've been a 
Board member, officer, previously, but maybe you've forgotten how business is 
actually conducted?

As I see it we have 66 former Charter Members of which the board has demanded

(Steve) Stephens. Indeed Dwight Plate falls one year short joining KOS in 1950. 
We published Marvin Schwillings memorial, how are we going to decide on future 
inclusions?

The only one that might have known Phil Menninger was Gene and Eulalia Lewis. 
We might have to resort to the obituary in the Topeka paper. It is a 
requirement that all Charter Members be given an obituary in the KOS Bulletin. 
This was passed by the board several years ago. We also usually use a picture 
if we can find one.

In an informal chat the other evenings the question of the Menninger family in 
regard to those surviving members came up. I checked and Philip B. Menninger 
had just past away on 10 May 2016. Philip was a Charter Member of KOS. I never 
met the man and know nothing of his ornithological activities in the Topeka 
area. I thought those who knew him may want to write a short paragraph for the 
HOLA on Philip since he looks like the last Charter Member of the Society. 


We had a great hatch of Western Kingbirds, Northern Orioles and American Robins 
this year here in our little slice of Western Kansas. The chokecherry crop at 
Scott Park is the best we have seen in 30 years.

Is Dan Gish someone who would have had any overlap with Menninger? Also 
this has come up before but I don't remember the answer: is Dwight Platt 
not a charter member?

I made a quick trip to Cedar Bluffs State Park to see if the plovers were still 
around. They were not. I did see one Semi-palmated Plover, Spotted, Baird's, 
Least, and Semi-palmated Sandpipers, and one Marbled Godwit. I also found Black 
and Forster's Terns on the lake shore and one Solitary Sandpiper on a pond east 
of the lake. Two large gulls were too far to ID, but looked bigger than 
Ring-billed compared to the geese and terns.

From: Jeff Hansen <hanjd AT COX.NET>
Date: Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:52:56 -0500
Last week I was admiring the 100s of blackbirds lighting in the Huxman 
Rd wetland.
Something spooked the blackbirds and a little heron flew
up.  I thought it might be a least bittern.  A few days later I went
back with Janeen.  This was the evening when we found the giant pectoral 
sandpiper.
The bittern appeared again, hiding in the bulrushes.
Went back another time and no bittern, back another, no bittern.
Tonight went back, parked and saw his form in the bulrushes.  He watched
me for a while and then flew to another part of the marsh.  Per Ebird
this is the first record in Summer for the Topeka area.  I wonder if
they might be breeding there.  One is the most I've seen.

Picture is on Ebird if interested.

This is an interesting wetland.  The most numerous plant is not cat tail 
but sofstem bulrush (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani).

There are open areas with less vegetation.  The water smartweed  and 
arrowhead (Sagittaria) are blooming now.

Atcha Nolan and I birded Chautauqua county this morning until it got too
hot. We tried to find the chat previously found by Pete Janzen and
relocated by Kevin G but they were silent and not found. We did locate a
couple of summer tanagers singing nearby. We wandered the roads around
Sedan and Peru as well as a couple good river roads and ended with 37 birds
on the day. Near the Quivera boy scout camp there is aroad running through
the prairie that had multiple grasshopper sparrow and lots of good summer
wild flowers.  Nice day to be out but hot.

Here is another video of the pectoral from west of Topeka.

https://youtu.be/aNnq6VXaAe8

This has a nicer mix of shorebirds for comparison.  And you can compare 
the smaller pectoral to the larger one.

Thanks for all the help.

Things I learned: Male pectorals have an air sac.  Male pectorals are 
bigger than females.

I wanted to see what shape the trails were in at the TAS Sanctuary at Lake
Perry this morning.  There was ankle high grass, no downed trees or limbs
across any paths.  Lookin' good.

Of course, I also looked for birds.  The usual suspects were heard and seen
but I wanted to alert everyone to one unexpected species: white-eyed
vireo.  I heard a song that wasn't familiar and tracked it to a thicket in
the north prairie area.  I came as close as 10-12 feet from the vireo and
could distinctly see the white eye, olive-yellow cap, yellow eye-ring, and
yellow sides of the bird. Although not considered rare by eBird, white-eyed
vireos aren't common and this is the first I have ever personally confirmed
the species at the sanctuary.  Nice bird for this hot July morning.

I'm in agreement with Gene and Mike - size aside, the plumage says 
Pectoral. It's easy to get caught up in the size debate and overlook plumage. 
Not all individuals of the same species are cookie cutter clones when it 
comes to size or plumage in some cases. And in shorebirds, there can be a 
fair amount of variation in size. I agree that this individual looks noticeably 

larger, but without bird in hand and measurements made, it's hard to know 
just how much bigger.

I recently ended my year of driving around Kingman County and can say that
of all the places I've birded in the state, Kingman County seems to be where
roadrunners are the most abundant.

Now this doesn't mean that you could easily see one there.  In fact, it's
hard to think of many year-round resident birds that are harder to see on a
given day than the Greater Roadrunner.  The nesting pair at Larned, near the
K-19 intersection just south of the Arkansas River Bridge, seem to be
somewhat reliable, but once again, they have lots of places to hide.

Dan Larson, Scott Kimball, Sam Shepard and Kylee Sharp, surveyed Baker
Wetlands, Lawrence Ks on Sunday July 17. We observed 64 species.The
highlight was getting good long looks at Least Bitterns two different
places. These birds are often not seen and sometimes only heard.

One was grasping a cattail somewhat near the water out in the open. It was
in the water way west of Mink Creek that runs west of the gas monitoring
station to the north it ends up in an area of a bench that is currently
somewhat over grown. It was probably 3/4 of the way down that spot. It
stayed there as long as we were there. marveling at it and taking
pictures.Another one flew in near it and stayed there for awhile and then
flew back from whence it came and into the cattails.

The third one viewed from near the parking area off of Haskell. This is the
Santa Fe mitigation area. It was close and visible. It was practically
doing the splits between two cattails near their base.I am hoping to get
pictures from Scott to add to our ebird report.

Subject: TAS field trip report, Clinton Wildlife Areas
From: Carol Morgan <crxmorgan AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 16 Jul 2016 18:25:12 -0500
Nine birders walked various Clinton Wildlife Areas this morning.  We were
lucky to have moderate temperatures this morning, so even though we sweated
in the sun, there were no complaints.  We started at Coblenz Marsh where
there was less water than I expected.  We found great egrets, great blue
herons and little blue herons in one of the few pools with open water.
Dickcissels and indigo buntings were abundant.  Best bird in this location
was a single bobolink.  He perched on a stalk for a long time, allowing
everyone in our group the opportunity to examine him with binoculars and
scope.  Bell's vireo, eastern phoebe, purple martin and common yellowthroat
were additional good birds, and they were lifers for at least one new
birder in our group.

Bloomington Beach was the next stop that provided good birds.  There were
quite a few people splashing in the swimming area of the beach, so the
Franklin's and ring-billed gulls were bunched up to the south of the
swimming area.  The willows trees to the north of the swimming beach
yielded our best bird for this stop, an agitated prothonotary warbler.
Perhaps we walked too near his nest.  We also had a chipping sparrow,
scissor-tailed flycatchers, eastern kingbirds and bluebirds in the area.

Our last stop was at the dead end going south on E550 Road from which you
can see Bald Eagle Nest #1.  No eagles were seen, but we did see
double-crested cormorants and great egrets out on some snags.  We also
heard and saw an eastern towhee in the woods.  A yellow-breasted chat was
heard, but we couldn't coax him out into the open.  A possible pileated
woodpecker was also heard.

We had up to 52 species total.  We were happy with the variety of birds we
saw today, and agreed that those birds that escaped detection only made us
want to get outside and go birding again in the future.

Subject: Wichita Botanica Bird Walk
From: ok_forbs <ok_forbs AT ZOHO.COM>
Date: Sat, 16 Jul 2016 16:11:48 -0500
This Tue. (July 19) will be the monthly bird walk at Wichita Botanica. It's 
always the 3rd Tue. of the month. The walk is about an hour long, and we meet 
at 9 am inside the Botanica building. 


Botanica members get in free, the non-membership entry rates are at:
http://www.botanica.org/hours-admission

Cost information to become a Botanica member are at:
http://www.botanica.org/membership

This is not an official Botanica event; it's just a few of us doing this on our 
own. 


This event is relaxed, and ideal for folks wanting to learn birds.
It's a nice atmosphere walking along the garden path.


"It is by leaps and bounds, one of the worst (most successful) invasive species 
on the planet."

Magazine.

Subject: Piping Plover at Baker Wetlands, 13 July 2016
From: Kylee Sharp <kyleesharp AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 16 Jul 2016 06:28:37 -0500
On 13 July 2016, I had a PIPING PLOVER at the Baker Wetlands, in the
Shorebird Shallows area (north of 1250 Rd, on the east side of Haskell
Rd).  It was a very pale bird (distinctly pale, like a sanderling, not the
brownish of a semipalmated plover) and it had a complete breast band (which
rules out snowy plover) and the white and black markings on forehead and
the orange bill with black tip.  Looks just like the interior breeding form
shown in Nat Geo field guide.
Unfortunately, there was very little in the way of mud flats on Wednesday,
and the bird disappeared after a brief couple of looks and I was unable to
get a photo.  But I feel that the extreme paleness and the complete breast
band, along with the forehead and bill markings is plenty to positively ID
it as a piping plover.  It was with about 8 Least Sandpipers, several
Killdeer and one Long-billed Dowitcher, all concentrated on a very small
(and the only) spit of mud.  After the rains on Wednesday, the tiny bit of
mud that was available for shorebirds is now gone, and there were no
shorebirds out there on Friday morning.

Sorry for the late post, but I wanted to at least put this out there so
others could keep an eye out in the area.

Hi all, 


I spent some time at the Big Salt Marsh of Quivira this afternoon and found a 
nice mix of shorebirds along 170th. Best birds were a single Semipalmated 
Plover, lots of Stilt and Pectoral Sandpipers, a single Western Sandpiper, four 
Baird's Sandpipers, lots of Leasts, a single Willet, lots of both yellowlegs 
and 18 Short-billed Dowitchers. The dowitchers were nicely orange and were in a 
loose flock with 3 Long-billeds. They obliged by calling when they flushed. The 
singing Painted Bunting was in its usual location a couple of miles to the west 
on 170th as well. The complete 
checklists are listed below.

in both Durango and Denver). Many of you have already pre-ordered your copy of

anxiously awaiting the book launch for many, many months, and we truly

towards this herculean effort that documents current distribution, and change 
in distribution across 20 years, of Colorado's breeding birds. This landmark 
achievement in bird conservation will be utilized by wildlife and other natural 
resource professionals to guide sound habitat management practices in our state 
that strive to maintain bird populations for generations to come. Your 
contributions to long-term bird conservation will be forever chronicled in the 
Atlas II publication. Proceeds from book sales will go directly towards meeting

Hi all,


I took a call from a person in Phillipsburg (Loren Edwards) that reported 
seeing at least four Mississippi Kites in his neighborhood in the southwest 
part of town. He said one was carrying a large piece of grass to a tree - 
probably nesting material? A little late, but could be I suppose. Anyhow, they 
are not listed as a nesting species for Phillips County, so hopefully he will 
report back or if anyone is up in that part of the state in the next few weeks, 
they can be confirmed. He thought it was unusual to see them there and I'd 
agree that they are probably not abundant, but a few make it up that far.

Hi Bob, I agree that stress could be a contributing factor. But what impressed 
me even more (in the online article that I cited below) was the reported 
observation by: " Gary Ritchison, an ornithologist at Eastern Kentucky 
University and author of Wild Bird Guides: Northern Cardinal (1997, Stackpole) 
told me he has,   handled thousands of cardinals while mist-netting and 
banding over the years and only a few have had naked heads. None of those had 
severe mite or lice problems. This leads me to believe that parasites are 
probably not the cause. And although stress could be a contributing factor, the 
stress of raising a family is probably far more widespread than the occurence 
of bald heads. That is why I think that genetics is probably a more important 
factor. Likewise, I think that male pattern baldness in humans is probably also 
more genetically related than stress related (stress seems more likely to cause 
premature gray hair than balding). Anyway, this could be studied by collecting 
DNA from the bald cardinals to see if they have genetic differences from 
cardinals with no evidence of balding during the same general time period 
(mid-to-late summer). It's an interesting question, and the costs of gene 
sequencing have dropped so much that such studies are increasingly affordable. 
Who knows what we might discover. --------------Ken Kinman, Hays,

Perhaps I can throw an oar into the conversation as to why Cardinals 
loose their head feathers.  Yes, it is likely the molt but what causes 
them to loose those head feathers all at once?  I think it is fairly 
well established that an injury or illness to a bird (at least some 
birds) will stop the molt immediately.  If a domestic pigeon breaks a 
leg or becomes sick in late fall, during the molt, the molt stops and 
the old feathers remain until spring.  A pigeon that is hatched late in 
the year, e.g. late October, might retain a portion of its juvenile 
plumage when the weather turns very cold.  Pigeons feeding young 
(squabs) during the molt will not molt as quickly as non-breeding 
birds.  But those parent birds that are feeding young in late October 
will loose large patches of feathers, particularly on their neck and 
head, "after" the offspring fledge.  This is quite dramatic to observe.  
So might it be reasonable to think that the unidentified factor is, at 
least in part, due to "stress"?  Are those bald Cardinals suddenly 
loosing head feathers because the stress of feeding their young, 
protecting territory and guarding mates has inhibited the molt until the 
nesting is complete?  Just a thought to consider!  Though not a pathogen 
stress can be a killer.

Subject: Quivira Bird Checklist and Larned Hummer
From: Barry Jones <barjones78 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 14 Jul 2016 15:40:46 -0500
Two unrelated items: due to the "new order" of things with the AOU checklist 
revision, I revised Quivira's checklist to reflect those (and other recent) 
taxonomy changes, as well as the additions to Quivira's avifauna, which now 
totals 352. On that note, a total of 7 species have been added to Quivira's 
checklist since it was last revised in 2011: 


Red-necked Stint
Little Gull
Thayer's Gull
Pileated Woodpecker
Louisiana Waterthrush
Cape May Warbler
Pine Warbler

Since our supply of printed 2011 lists is quite large, for now this new list 
will only be available on our website. I have put a link on the main website 
page for anyone interested. 


Other: I had not thought to report about a regularly-occurring male 
Ruby-throated Hummingbird at our feeder this year in Larned since early June - 
that is until I checked with Donnie K. Guess it bears mentioning.

Subject: Broad-winged Hawks nesting
From: Ted Cable <tcable AT KSU.EDU>
Date: Thu, 14 Jul 2016 16:05:35 +0000
In light of Doris's post about the Broad-winged Hawk, I will add that they 
apparently have nested right across the lake from her house for the past few 
years. I see them along Tuttle Cove Rd almost daily during recent summers. In 
fact, just this morning on the way to work I saw the pair flying together. I 
think I have the nest location pretty well nailed down, but it is on private 
land and haven't pursued finding it. Maybe they are nesting on the east side of 
the lake too. 


The only other noteworthy observation that I have had this summer on Tuttle was 
a Laughing Gull on June 26th. I only saw it for one afternoon on the stumps on 
the west side of the lake. -- Ted

My husband and I have gotten pictures of cardinals like these for the past
several years at our feeders in Shawnee KS. We have observed it in male and
female cardinals. We were greatly disturbed the first time but then read
online that this can be normal or possibly caused by mites. This summer we
have seen at least two bald males and a female at our feeders.

Hi Steve, I would call it an abnormal molt (perhaps genetic). A normal molt 
would be more gradual, but I would guess that some cardinals might have one or 
more gene mutations which cause these (more severe) abnormal molts on the head. 

 But even the experts can't seem to agree, and some guess it is due to 
parasites (even though the evidence seems weak that it is due to parasites). He 
is one example:

Gannet which dives deep for sardines.  The footage is spectacular as is the

Date: Wed, 13 Jul 2016 21:13:57 -0500
Jaye and I spent some time checking wetland areas around Milford Lake this 
evening. We saw zero shorebirds and heard 1 Spotted Sandpiper. The 
outflow at Milford has been shut down to zero for about a week while they do 
their periodic de-watering and inspection of the outflow tubes and stilling 
basin. As such the lake has risen about a foot and the edge of the water is in 
vegetation absolutely everywhere. It looks like the outflow should be opened 
back up in the next day or two so we may start to get some mud flats back.

Today wasn't a total bust however. We came home for lunch to a 
Red-shouldered Hawk sitting on our back fence. We have been encountering 
Red-shouldered Hawks more and more frequently in recent years. We found 
a nest on Walla Walla Road about three years ago to confirm nesting. We 
have heard them calling from our yard - in fact Jaye heard one yesterday 
morning when she left for work. But having one perched on our fence was a 
nice surprise!

Date: Tue, 12 Jul 2016 21:42:28 -0500
Sorry for the multiple postings tonight. Trying to get loose ends tied up 
before 

I head into our county fair next week!

The AOU has updated their web page of the full checklist allowing me to 
proof my draft against the "master list". All of the KOS/Kansas Checklists that 

are linked on the County Checklist Index page: 
http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/checklist_index.htm are now updated. 

It was called to my attention today that this version has the legend for 
breeding records but none of the species were marked. Hmmm. They were 
correct. That oversight has been corrected. The checklist at: 
http://ksbirds.org/checklist/KansasChecklist.pdf has been updated to reflect 
all the species that we have a confirmed breeding record in Kansas for. 
There will be some slight discrepencies between this and the county 
checklists because they county checklists currently include probable as well 
as confirmed breeding records.

I have also updated the pocket card version of the checklist. This is the 
format of the checklists on heavier cardstock that we have historically sold 
(once sheet, two sided, tri-fold). Those versions have been updated as well - 
they do not indicate breeding species. Once version of this pocket card 
checklist is designed to print on a 7 x 11 inch version (print on 8 1/2 by 11 
and cut it down to 7!) as well as version that prints out full on 8 1/2 x 11). 
Those can be accessed at:
http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/KOS_13th_Checklist_July_2016.pdf
and
http://www.ksbirds.org/checklist/KOS_13th_Checklist_July_2016_standard_s
ize.pdf (that one might have wrapped - sorry!)

The individual county checklists won't be updated until late August/early 
September so there's still time to get me your new county records if you 
haven't already.

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the checklists!

Two things I forgot to mention. If you are coming to the lake on I-70 from the 
east there is a lot of construction on US 77. Add a couple of minutes to your 
travel time! If you are coming from the west, use the Milford Lake Road exit 
(Exit 290 I think) and then north to K-244 then follow the signs to the lake.

Also, due to a work conflict, the August walk will not be the 3rd Saturday, but 

the 4th, August 27th. Probably more migrants then anyway!

good for Saturday so let's keep our fingers crossed. Location for this months 
walk isn't set yet, but we'll be focusing still on breeding species unless we 
get 

a wave of early migrant shorebirds between then and now. If you have any

Subject: Wichita Least Terns
From: Bob Gress <bobgress AT COX.NET>
Date: Tue, 12 Jul 2016 19:14:30 -0500
This is a request for information.  The rains and the subsequent floods on
the Arkansas River have wreaked havoc on our Wichita Least Tern colony.  In
early June they were just getting started with two nests going when the
first floods submerged their entire sandbar.  And then it flooded a second
time before renesting could occur.  So the season is likely a total nesting
loss.  UNLESS...the birds have decided to nest elsewhere.  This has happened
before.  And I hope they have found some place locally to nest.  But we have
no idea where this might be.  If anyone sees Least Terns around please let
me know.  It could be on the river but with periodic flooding, a relocated
colony more likely moved to a sand operation or a construction site with
lots of bare sand awaiting construction.  Any information is appreciated!!
Thanks!

Is there any history of attempting to attract Martins to a "better"
location?  In Wichita, the trees behind Century Two seemed to be less
intrusive on the business districts.  Just a crazy idea that would take an
act of Congress.  Use recorded matin sounds from the present roost, play
them at a nearby site, and use deterrent tactics to encourage them to
move.  Any comments?

since incubation began.  When I ended my session around 11AM on 7/10 I
had just seen an interesting interaction where a second-year (hatched
2015) Kite came to the nest tree and apparently provoked a strong
reaction from the nesting adult pair.  That same day I saw at least
one prey delivery to the nest but it appeared that the delivering
adult simply ate the prey entirely, rather than feeding some of it to
a chick.  On 7/11 the situation was markedly different, with multiple
prey deliveries to the nest starting around 8AM, and the adult
delivering the prey spending much more time time with head down,
likely feeding one or more chicks.  It's difficult to know for certain
that chicks are present because after a prey delivery the adult
involved will bob its head down and then raise it again while still
opening and closing the beak, giving the impression that at least some
of the prey is being consumed by the adult rather than fed to a chick,
and then repeat the whole process, but I think that this is primarily
just the adult cleaning remaining bits of prey from its beak, rather
than the adult feeding itself.  Or perhaps the bird is consuming some
of the prey while also feeding  a chick,  Anyway the behavior of the
adult birds was markedly different on 7/11 than on 7/10 and I'm almost
certain that chicks were present on 7/11.  More of the same on 7/12.

No part of any chick has yet been visible from my viewing spot.

I've taken lots of videos-- who knows when I will get around to
posting them though!   My Canon SX60 delivers a much better video than
the SX10 I was using previously.

In Omaha they get 50 to 60,000 martins. They turn it into a positive and
advertise it as an event to come see. Randy Carman

Jim,
This will be a very emotional subject. I will try to keep emotions out.
Purple Martins are not at the top of the food chain. There is always
something that wants to kill and eat them. They eat a huge number of
insects. I think we as humans can do our best to let them be. I do think
the time to think about this is not when they are here but after they
leave. I would say if specific property owners do not want them they should
cut down the trees where they roost on their property in the fall or winter
after they martins have left.
Thanks

The City of Wichita is very interested in finding a way to discourage the
local martins from roosting in Old Town this summer. I would appreciate any
direction people can offer on how to do this. I assume disruption/deterrence
at the first signs of roosting is about the best you can do other than
cutting down the trees.

Subject: Barton County Burrowing Owls
From: Rob Graham <graham AT KSIMAGER.COM>
Date: Mon, 11 Jul 2016 21:45:36 -0500
A friend told me about a Burrowing Owl nest in western Barton County. I
went out tonight and found the nest, with 3 young in it. An adult flew off
the nest as I drove up. After watching the owls for a while, I then chased
the sun as it created amazing beams of light. After the light faded, I
headed towards town, and almost hit another Burrowing Owl. I saw both
adults, and by luck saw the nest with 3 or 4 young. The nestlings in this
second nest were larger and more mobile than the ones in the first nest
appeared to be. This was a treat for me since I hadn't seen any Burrowing
Owls in Barton County since the flood of 2007 which wiped out the nesting
areas I knew of. I haven't really searched in the last few years either,
which obviously plays a part in not seeing them :).

I hit all the local wetlands northwest of Topeka this morning. Water in 
all of them. Many hidden by maize.

But on the Humphrey rd field wetland there were 3 solitary sandpipers.

Here's a link to an article that quite a few Kansas birders will find
interesting and perhaps poignant.  Many KSBIRDers have at one time or
another been lucky enough to meet Dee and Phyllis Scherich while visiting
one of the more interesting physiographic features in Kansas, Schwartz
Canyon.  This article covers their retirement plus the effects of the huge
wildfire that swept across the Merrill Ranch in eastern Comanche County last
spring. Be sure to check out all the photos.

st-ride/article_69b90789-e631-5e6d-9627-ec141fa2d806.html

 

I attempted to conduct both of my BBS routes this last week; flooding had
delayed any attempt of running them since late June.  The Ash Valley route
started out great with no flooding at Ash Creek or at Pawnee Creek, but at
Stop 23 there was nothing open water ahead!  Sawmill Creek was 1/2 mile
wide!  I tried an 8-mile detour around that segment only to find another
spot with fast-flowing water where no other car had attempted to cross, so I
gave up.  

 

I was able to complete the Gray BBS in Hodgeman County on 7 July.  There had
been serious flooding in prior days, but it had all subsided and the roads
were dry.  Despite the lateness of the date, birds were still fairly easy to
detect with just a few blatant misses.  The biggest surprise was a
WHITE-WINGED DOVE that flew past me 3 miles east of Jetmore.  It was a new
county bird for me, though not all that surprising given the numbers of
WWDOs in other county seats to the west, south, and east.

 

That's about it.  I guess Donnie and Kathy K. are watching the roadrunner
nest south of Larned.  I haven't seen the nest, but I have seen the adults
running around at the K-19 intersection south of the Ark. River.

Jeff,

Not sure how experienced a birder you are so I apologize if this has been ruled 

out, but the red-bellied woodpecker call has always reminded me of a ringing 
phone.

For a week I thought it was a neighbors phone. But it rings all the time. It 
can't be a phone. Last night I investigated. It was in a walnut tree. I'm 
thinking maybe a Blue jay. Thoughts?

I found one oversight in what was posted earlier. The order of the vireos had 
been changed and forgot to do that on the checklist. It has been corrected 
and posted.

Committee update can be found at:

http://ksbirds.org/checklist/KansasChecklist.pdf

This isn't final yet. I still want to take some time to go back through the 
report 

a couple more times and make sure I've got all the changes correctly made. 
But it should be close!
