We counted 45 species this weekend, which is three off of our record high count 
for the comparable weekend. A Cattle Egret, scurrying around in a nearby tilled 
field, was a house-list first (now at 149) and our highlight for the weekend. 
Though, I guess, seven sparrow species is respectable. 

Among the expected-but-missing were Barn Swallows, Flickers, and Cooper’s 
Hawk, which have been unusually scarce here, this year. 

On the nearly-sure-but-not-sure-enough front, I had a brown swallow speed past 
me, this morning, on its way to somewhere else, that probably was a Northern 
Rough-winged. Then, later this morning, I watched a pair of Buteos, which were 
nearly out of sight and heading away, when I spotted them. They appeared to 
have banded-tails and I think they were Broad-wings… but not certain enough 
to count. 

As of today, we have a Bluebird nest with two eggs and the Carolina Wrens have 
three eggs, in a lovely nest…in my oil waste pan, on the shelf in the garage! 

Following is a Flickr link to a truly lousy photo of the Cattle Egret. It was 
distant and poorly focus, but serves to document the sighting - Cattle Egret at

This is very near Niagra Falls, which is at the east end of Lake Erie, a  
natural barrier to north-south migration, and thus a great place to try to  
catch migrants as they swing around the end of the lake on their way back to  
the breeding grounds..

Sunny!

Highlight:
2 Lousiana Waterthrushes
21 Wilson’s Snipe
FOS Black Vulture
25 White-crowned Sparrows (they seem to have disappeared at Sauerheber)

Low Light:
No Eastern Meadowlarks. The field where I have always found them in quantity 
had been burned off. Apparently the meadowlarks didn’t like the change. 


I thought I kept hearing an Indigo Bunting but could never locate it so I 
didn’t include it. If it was an Indigo Bunting it was being very elusive.

Sounds like a great day for any month.


Late this morning I was down in a wet, sheltered spot of my yard (pulling 
garlic mustard) when I heard a near-whispered winter wren song. I looked up and 
watched the bird getting a drink for a couple minutes. I say "getting a drink 
for a couple minutes," but the bird was so active it would take a drink, bounce 
around, then take another drink, all lasting a couple minutes. It was whisper 
singing the whole time. 



And I was just wondering when I'd get my yard bird winter wren. Today was my 
day! Not quite a 126 species kind of day, but I'll still take it.

Mark Monroe and I did a west KY big day for the month of March yesterday, the 
29th. Really nothing rare and the birding was mostly routine other than a dozen 
or so "firsts" for the year. We tallied 126 species, although I missed seeing a 
silent Eastern Screech-Owl that Mark saw fly in when I was looking down at my 
tape player in the pre-dawn darkness. 


Highlights:

Muhlenberg County: Henslow's Sparrows are in at Sinclair WMA with several 
calling from the "S1-S2 High Spot" overlook area. We also had a single Barn Owl 
vocalize and fly by us nearby. Plenty of American Woodcocks and a couple of 
Virginia Rails in one of the wet spots dominated by Phramites. We had a Marsh 
Wren calling and numerous Rusty Blackbirds singing at the formerly cattail and 
now largely Phramites marsh along KY 176 east of Drakesboro. 


LBL/Dams area: On Lake Barkley in the vicinity of Kuttawa we had many Forster's 
Terns, 2 Caspians, and 3 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. At Sledd Creek boat ramp, 
the *ONLY* gull in view was a 2nd year Lesser Black-backed! Hundreds of Am. 
White Pelicans grace every section of Lake Barkley and both dams. An early 
Chimney Swift flew by us near Ky Dam Village, and the pine plantation yielded 
the three species of nuthatches without much trouble. At least 1 Vesper Sparrow 
was with a flock of sparrows below Barkley Dam. 


Lower Hickman Bottoms of western Fulton County: I believe we saw 1500-2000 
shorebirds, almost all being yellowlegs and Pects. Maybe 100-150 American 
Golden-Plovers, 4 Long-billed Dowitchers, and a heard-only Dunlin were the most 
notable. Had American Pipits a few places. During the 45 minutes or so before 
sunset, probably 95-99% of the shorebirds departed to the northwest on the 
favorable south breeze. Had 3 Brewer's Blackbirds sitting in the trees at 
Midway Church. 


Overall, ... as usual, Mark found us most of our raptors; on the way home we 
discussed the fact that *Osprey* and *Bald Eagle* were far and away the most 
numerous raptors on the day with probably more than 40 Ospreys (most around the 
lakes & dams) and 30-35 Bald Eagles (most down in Fulton County)! We also had 
singles of both Accips, a few Northern Harriers, a fly-by Merlin near Open 
Pond, and an adult Peregrine Falcon at Kentucky Dam. We saw all the swallows 
except Bank, including a few Cliffs at Barkley & Kentucky Dams. Fish Crows were 
heard at a number of spots. Winter Wrens were tuned up; I think we heard five 
on the day. We only had one flock of Cedar Waxings near Boyd's Landing on Lake 
Barkley. Our seven-warbler day included Yellow-rumped (many now molting), an 
Orange-crowned that Mark found near the entrance to the Ky Dam camping area, a 
number of Pine, several Yellow-throated and Louisiana Waterthrush, a few 
Northern Parula, and a male Common Yellowthroat. 


Biggest misses included diving ducks (missed Ring-neck, Gr. Scaup, Com. 
Goldeneye, Redhead, and Canvasback, all of which should have or could have 
still been around), Black-crowned Night-Heron (couldn't find one *anywhere*?), 
Brown Creeper, Fox Sparrow (most probably have departed), and Western 
Meadowlark (I thought for sure some would still be around in Fulton County but 
we didn't hear or see a one). 


In the afternoon, it was remarkable to run into not only Josh Powell, but Ben & 
Mary Yandell, in the Lower Hickman Bottoms (an actual random gathering of 
birders in Kentucky of all places) ....

After I refilled the feeders this morning I noticed there was not any activity 
at the feeders, in fact no activity in the yard at all. I could hear birds in 
the surrounding areas but not anywhere nearby. 


I sat on the back porch to read and heard a Cooper’s Hawk calling: kek, kek, 
kek,… 


Then I noticed it in the Red Maple in the back yard. It picked out a dead twig 
and flew into the nearby Pine tree. I would return to the maple, call 
repeatedly, then pick out another twig then fly back to the pine. Over and 
over. Then I noticed a 2nd bird in the yard. Looks like I have a possible 
nesting pair for the yard. We’ll have to see.

Paddled 8 miles on Cedar Creek Lake which is near Stanford.  Highlights of
the 33 species included:

   - Bald Eagle sitting high enough on the nest to make me think there has
   been a hatch.  There were also a couple of juvi Bald Eagles in the area.
   - Ospreys working on their 3rd nest in 4 years.  The original blew down
   then they had an off year.  Last year they built a new nest but there was
   no fledge and now this year another nest has been started.  The male was
   soaring almost out of sight and diving then coming to almost a complete
   mid-air stop while dropping its talons.  He did this over and over again
   while vocalizing before dropping to the new nest.
   - An early Green Heron
   - LOTS of Tree Swallows working on nests.
   - At least 10 Red-headed Woodpeckers.

As Brainard and Mark found, good numbers of shorebirds in Fulton County, both 
3/29 and 3/30. We still had numbers similar to their report as dark approached 
3/29, including some that seemed to be coming in, mainly along Midway Church 
Road. 


Despite the severe storm forecast, the weather mostly behaved on 3/30. Lots of 
local damage still apparent from the 3/9 tornados: 
http://www.wave3.com/story/34714167/possible-tornado-damages-fulton-co-ky-dispatch-center 
. 


Other notable finds:
- Indigo Bunting. 3/30. Surprisingly early; pair seen flying together along 
1282 near the main (east) entrance to Long Point (Reelfoot). 

- Solitary Sandpiper. 3/30. At least 3 seen in wet field across railroad tracks 
from 94, just west of junction with 1282. 

- Ring-necked Duck. 3/31. 52 counted. Notably swimming in pairs; Muhlenberg 
Co.; small pond on east side of Sinclair S-2, south of the Paradise power plant 
 
37.242825, -86.994832. (Remember that an annual permit, available at local gas 
stations, is needed for travel in the Peabody WMA 
 near this area.)

The precipitation finally stopping I headed for Highland Creek.

Having spotted a YCNH at Gentle Pond the other day I hoped to spot some at 
Highland Creek where they have nested before. 

Success: I found 4 there. JPGs with eBird report.
I did see one gathering a twig, but no nests yet. It did seem that there were 2 
pairs. 


I kept hearing a call that I did not recognize: sounded like a Barred Owl. But 
it was like a short “wooo” about every 30 to 90 seconds. Never could find 
it. 

I did hear 1 distinct Barred Owl call. But only once.

Boone and Dee are on their natural cliff along the Kentucky River!  This is
the first year of three that both are adults so there is good reason to
expect eggs! If successful this will be the first confirmed nest on a
natural cliff in Kentucky.

For those who don't know about them:
2015 - Banded Boone was with unbanded sub-adult Dixie. No eggs.

2016 - Boone returned but Dixie did not. He courted several females but
another sub-adult won the rights to the cliff.  She is a real survivor
after being injured during fledging. She was taken to Raptor Rehab of
Kentucky and after several months of treatment and training to hunt was
released.  No eggs.

2017 - Two adults should equal eggs.

Fish and Wildlife has asked that I keep their location private to reduce
disturbance at their site and give them every chance to be succesful.  I
would also ask that you not share their FB page beyond the birders here in
KY for the same reason.

If you want to follow them, see photos and read the full history they have
a Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/BooneDixie/

Yesterday while working on a fence on our farm in Jefferson County, I heard a 
Henslow's Sparrow singing in one of the bigger Indian grass fields. This tied 
the second earliest date I've ever heard one in KY. 


Things have been pretty slow otherwise, although there is lots of nesting 
activity being initiated. Seem to be a lot of Northern Flickers around this 
week, probably migrants.

Wow! There are two BROWN THRASHERS vocally active around the house and my
studio. I want to believe they are "returnees" because they knew right away
how to tackle the caged suet cake.  The WILD TURKEYS have been very vocal in
the woods above the studio. I always fear that the coyotes might wipe them
out. Speaking of being vocal, the BARRED OWL HAS BEEN VOCAL ALSO. It has
been a woodpecker gathering lately. Right now I hear a couple og PILEATED
and earlier ts morning a HAIRY WOODPECKER was enjoying the sunflower seeds,
along with the RED-BELLIED and the DOWNY. Other birds this past week:
EASTERN MEADOWLARK, EASTERN BLUEBIRDS, KILLDEER, FIELD SPARROWS, EASTERN
TOWHEE, SHARP-SHINNED HAWK grabbing breakfast at the feeding area among
drifting feathers, and all the other usuals.

 

Cheers,

Just wanted to share that I heard a Common Loon calling from the river while at 
Garvin Brown today! Got good looks at him between dives. He was swimming up 
river when I left him. He called 3 more times, exciting to hear that here! 

Also, had plenty of Tree Swallows arguing for nest boxes! And about 5 Rusty 
Blackbirds in that corner entrance at the soccer field, in the swampy area just 
after you enter!

We woke up to a wonderful cacophony of song this morning.nothing like mild
weather and sunshine to get em going. The symphony included our FOS
Louisiana  waterthrushes; two or maybe three birds are singing in the creek
beds on our property. 

 

Also, purple finches have been slowly accumulating at the feeders.today we
have 12 in the flock, including five knock-your-eyes-out bright males. They
are ready to party!

 

Have fun out there,

Charlie Plush emailed me today about Short-eard Owls at the Sloughs WMA.

His report:

FYI, I saw 4 short-eared owls today on the Crenshaw Tract at Sloughs. I 
actually flushed them from the grass around Blind 45, then they proceeded to 
soar over the field for 10-15 minutes. First time I've ever seen them at the 
Sloughs.

Subject: Failed Eagle Nest
From: Melissa Easley <melissaeasley1 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 23 Mar 2017 22:56:55 -0500
You might remember that I reported several weeks ago an 11 year old Bald
Eagle nest and tree on Ky. Lake with an adult sitting on eggs was destroyed
by a storm. When I reported it to Kate Slakart of the Fish and Wildlife,
she consoled me that sometimes if nests are destroyed early in the season,
the pair may build another one.

Well, recently Hap and I observed a small nest of sticks directly across
the mudflat from the destroyed nest. Then several days ago we looked at the
nest and there were two adults in the tree.  For at least 30 minutes we
watched as one brought sticks to the nest. That has to be "my" pair of
eagles and it made me very happy.

Life is good,

seed on the ground at the moment. Right now my most common sparrow is the 
American Tree Sparrow (which never came to my old feeder). Once again I have 
male red winged black birds but no females. The male towhee I heard in the back

It was a great morning to be outdoors, as sunshine and mild temperatures kept 
the birds active. Highlights were an adult bald eagle soaring over Sunset 
Point, a gobbler strutting and gobbling with nine hens right in the road, a 
thrasher singing from the treetops, and all seven woodpeckers.

We counted 46 species on this lovely weekend.  That's 3 more than our previous 
high count for the comparable weekend in March.  Early yesterday, a Swamp 
Sparrow sat and preened while I took lots of photos, then shortly after that 
our FOS Savannah Sparrow also posed for photos.  By that time I'd already 
counted 8 "sparrow" species, so I went on a campaign to get a photo of each.  
I ended with 7 of the 8; missing only the Chipping.  Most of the photos aren't 
great, but I was going for quantity, not quality:-).  Flickr links follow. 

Other highlights included the first Red-headed Woodpecker in many weeks, a 
Merlin fly-over, a speeding flock of around dozen Cedar Waxwings, and two good 
looks at Yellow-rumped Warblers.  

Brown Thrashers were singing everywhere at once, but the Towhees were missing 
this week.

Yesterday, for the first time in a number of years, I swept the 7 woodpeckers 
on my farm. Red-headed is typically the species I miss, but one seems to have 
taken up residence in our older woods. I guess one of the tiniest of tiny 
positives to the arrival of the emerald ash borer will maybe be that I'll at 
least have Red-headeds around for several years as the few thousand White ash 
on our farm die.

Finally the Sauerheber Unit is open after being closed since November 1st.

One of the coldest opening days I can remember. Clear skies, 20º rising to 
30º, NW breezes. Apparently light snow flurries in areas of the Sloughs last 
night left a dusting here and there on the ground. No frost. 


Gentle Pond area was not visited. It was closed due to Waterfowl Research!! I 
had hoped to check on the Bald Eagle nest there, but I guess that will have to 
wait. 



Wood Tract north frozen over, most of Hardy Slough & Pond Creek Marsh frozen, 
Shorebird Unit frozen.

10 Bald Eagles including 2 on nests

First spring bird hike at Mammoth today...it was cold, but birds were active. A 
great day to be outside. Nothing unusual, but it was a joy to see a few more 
chipping sparrows and hear one in song.

 Four Wilson's Snipe and one very cold looking Lesser Yellowlegs were found 
this morning in Hays Kennedy Park. Although ice had formed along the waterways 
the birds were still finding food right at the edge of the water. 

The Bald Eagle was on the nest and there were several species of ducks at the

A bird is a homeothermic (warm-blooded) vertebrate in the  Class Aves.
The Class Aves is characterized by having feathers, scaled  legs and feet. 
The mouth is modified into a beak and is toothless. The  fore appendages are 
modified into wings. The heart is four  chambered. They are egg layers. 
They are evolved from  reptiles.

What is the purpose of the question, and why are you uncommonly persistent in 
eliciting responses? 


It seems unlikely that you are seeking either scientific or literary definition 
or elucidation. 


What are you a student of? (I know, I know, but the other way seems pompous and 
pedantic.) 


This is a casual list that generally eschews chivvying.
