The afternoon field trip to Bradford Farms has been moved to October 11th. It 
will be at 8:00 a.m. The primary focus has changed from marsh species to 
grassland sparrow species such as Le Conte's and Nelson's. Now you don't have 
to choose between Prairie Fork and Bradford Farms!! 


Saturday, October 11th
Destination: Bradford Farms
Departure Point: Bradford Farms Visitor's Center, 4968 Rangeline Rd, Columbia, 
MO 

Leader:  Brad Jacobs
Contact Info: Lori Turner loricastrips AT gmail.com 

We will leave the visitor center's parking lot at 8:00 a.m. by foot and explore 
Bradford Farms. This trip will be focused on finding LeConte's and Nelson's 
Sparrow, other species will be sought after as well. Wear your tallest 
waterproof boots, if you want, as we might go through some shallow water areas 
in hopes of flushing Rails and Marsh and Sedge Wrens. Expect lots of slow 
walking and many bird species! We will return to the parking lot around noon.

I was able to get a picture this evening of our first sighting this fall of a 
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in the Bird Garden at work (on Ellis Blvd in Jefferson 
City). It was a male, the pic is here:

Earlier in the day I photographed a Philadelphia Vireo in the same garden- it 
was on Virginia creeper vine.

These Black-throated Green Warbler sighting were of adult and young birds in 
some of the MOFEP project study areas. Other folks have recorded them on BBS 
routes, too. There is a small nesting population of about 15 pairs in northern 
Arkansas, too. Maybe Janet Haslerig in Resource Science Div. has some of the 
data on them.

Subject: Summer Black-throated Greens and Nesting in Missouri

Mike Doyen asked if anyone is aware of breeding Black-throated Green Warblers 
in Missouri. Besides the summer visitor records, which can all be seen here: 

http://www.showme-birds.com/index_files/BlackThroatedGreenWarblerRecords.htm
There is an article in The Bluebird, Volume 78, No. 1 pages 54-58 - You will 
know it by the incredible photo of a juvenile Long-tailed Jaeger on the cover. 
This article discusses the breeding BT Green Warblers found in the area of the 
Current River during the summer of 2010. I cannot respond to the exact 
documentation of this record, at least not with the MBRC, because I am not 
certain where that documentation ended. Regardless, this article discusses the 
only instance of confirmed breeding in Missouri documented to date. However, I 
am not aware (nor do the summer reports indicate) if breeding was found at 
these locations in years after this discovery - Maybe someone else is?? 
Regardless, very interesting...... And with this type of isolation, the 
possibility of a unique subspecies certainly comes to mind?

Friends and fellow birders.

If you are birding in the Columbia, Fayette, MO area over the next thirty days 
stop in at CMU and view the 70 pieces show of original avian art by Missouri's 
own David Plank. All the birds are specific to Missouri in recognizable 
habitat. If you are a fan of David's work like I am then take a birding trip on 
RT 240 out of Rocheport, MO up to Fayette. 


The university is also building a 80 acre nature center to bring back native 
plants and bird habitat. This is something close to my heart and I for one will 
be making the trip. 


David was talking to the head of the Ornithology Department at the University 
and he told David that the university was doing breeding and nesting survey of 
the Black throated Green Warbler in the big pines south of the Current River. 
Has anyone heard of breeding Black throated Greens in Missouri?

Subject: 8th Annual SLAS Yellow Rail Walk - October 4
From: Joshua Uffman <Birdsandbugs AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Mon, 29 Sep 2014 17:29:48 -0500
All:
 
On Saturday, October 4, 2014, I will lead an SLAS sponsored 1/2 day fieldtrip 
to search for Yellow Rails at BK Leach CA - King's Lake and Bittern Basin Units 
(Lincoln Co.). There will be lots of intense walking, which includes; walking 
through high weeds, mud, and water; so please dress appropriately. I promise 
there will be no swimming (as we have come very close to doing on a few of 
these walks)! 

 
WHO CAN COME:  Members or Non-Members, experienced or beginners.  
 
MEET: *8:00AM* at the Waterfowl HQ's Parking Lot. Will plan to bird until about 
noon. Directions are as follows: Take Hwy 79 north, past Winfield, to Hwy M. 
Turn right (east) on Hwy M, follow Hwy M about 3 miles. Turn left onto gravel 
road and follow to waterfowl HQ's. 


CARPOOLING:  NONE.  
 
TARGET BIRDS: Rails and Sparrows. We have only had the elusive Yellow Rail once 
in the previous seven years (October 6, 2007). However, we typically - no 
particular order - have very good looks at multiple Sora, maybe a Virginia 
Rail, Nelson’s and LeConte’s Sparrows, American Bitterns have been observed 
most years, various Raptors, Sedge and Marsh Wrens. 

 
WHAT TO BRING:
- enough water/drink for morning until about noon
- snacks if you need them
- binoculars 
 
LEADER:  Joshua Uffman
 
If you have any questions or need further clarification, etc., please contact 
me at the below e-mail address or call: 314.616.0296

Many Broad-winged Hawks were observed Friday, Saturday and Sunday over Lake of 
the Ozarks SP at the ASM fall meeting. What fun to watch them come up in groups 
to catch the thermals, circling, sometimes nearly colliding, then setting that 
course southwest and streaming along as if on a monorail track.

I enjoyed the Central Methodist University display of David's work last 
Wednesday, and encourage all who can to plan an hour there (then maybe lunch at 
Emmet's). Possum Haw Antiquarians is closed at this time, so no visit with Jim 
Wallace is possible. 


Yes, there are breeding records for Black-throated Green Warblers--I'm sure the 
MBRC can give you specifics.

Friends and fellow birders.

If you are birding in the Columbia, Fayette, MO area over the next thirty days 
stop in at CMU and view the 70 pieces show of original avian art by Missouri's 
own David Plank. All the birds are specific to Missouri in recognizable 
habitat. If you are a fan of David's work like I am then take a birding trip on 
RT 240 out of Rocheport, MO up to Fayette. 


The university is also building a 80 acre nature center to bring back native 
plants and bird habitat. This is something close to my heart and I for one will 
be making the trip. 


David was talking to the head of the Ornithology Department at the University 
and he told David that the university was doing breeding and nesting survey of 
the Black throated Green Warbler in the big pines south of the Current River. 
Has anyone heard of breeding Black throated Greens in Missouri?

Subject: Important: Changes at St Stanislaus CA
From: John Solodar <solodar AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:11:18 -0700
Two changes have occurred at St. Stanislaus since the SLAS trip there last 
year. Most importantly, the pit toilets are gone. There are no facilities 
anywhere on the area other than the woods. In addition, the picnic shelter and 
its tables and benches are all gone as well. 


The good news is that the concrete chute from the creek to the Missouri River 
was dry this morning and should stay that way thru Wednesday.

Saturday, October 4th
Destination: Prairie Fork Conservation Area, Williamsburg, MO 63388
Departure Point: Patricia's Foods, 900 N. Keene St. Columbia, MO. Carpool 
leaves at 8 a.m. 

Leader:  Amber Edwards and Laurie Shawver
Contact Info: Laurie- 573-999-5962 or Lori Turner 573-881-2941 
loricastrips AT gmail.com 

Amber Edwards, Education Coordinator, is meeting the group at Prairie Fork at 9 
am. Located in eastern Callaway County, it is used for educational experiences 
in topics including forestry and soils. It has been managed in close 
cooperation with the University of Missouri and Prairie Fork Trust and much 
effort has been made to restore parts of this 711 acre area to the natural 
prairie/savanna habitat that once graced this region of Missouri. This area is 
not open to the public so take advantage of this trip!! For more information on 
Prairie Fork or directions visit- 
http://prairiefork.missouri.edu/about/index.asp 


IMPORTANT NOTICE:
It is CRITICAL that NO ONE enters the Prairie Fork field trip data into eBird. 
Prairie Fork is a limited access area and they do not want it listed on eBird, 
which could encourage others to come onto the property. Please be considerate 
and DO NOT enter a checklist into eBird. If one is entered they will not let 
CAS have a trip there again and that would certainly be unfortunate.

Subject: Red-Tail Hawks Nest Building, Central MO. 9/26
From: Chris Barrigar <1chrisbarrigar AT LIVE.COM>
Date: Mon, 29 Sep 2014 08:04:43 -0600
Greetings!

 

Unfortunately, a prior commitment kept me from the Fall ASM Meeting this past 
weekend at Lake of the Ozarks State Park. While headed to Kansas City from 
Jefferson City, I spied a hawk banking and landing on a tower. With thoughts of 
migration and potential "western raptor species" (i.e. Swainson's Hawk), I 
turned around and came back to investigate to find it was a Red-tailed Hawk 
with very little (barely visible) belly/chest markings - nearly all white 
breast. The intriguing part was that it was carrying a stick in its beak. I 
watched it fly to a lower level on the tower where a second RTHA was perched 
near the beginnings of a nest. 


 

For those interested, the nest location is between Syracuse and Tipton on Hwy 
50 in Moniteau Co and can be (somewhat safely) viewed from a road side pull off 
next to railroad tracks. 


 

Its kind of interesting that we are entering into peak migration period 
watching the skies for southward bound raptors when this pair of resident birds 
is starting to build a nest. I suspect Bald Eagles will be following suit if 
not already in the process of nest building. You could say that nest building 
at this time of year hadn't even entered my mind until this reminder. 


 

A link to that image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cbarrigar/15204865027/

 

On the home front: last night just before dark I thought I heard a 
White-throated Sparrow. I could not get a visual on the hidden bird, and 
pishing didn't produce an appearance of the skulking bird either. Putting this 
down as a "?WTSP?" in my notes for this date. 


 

Good Fall Birding!

Subject: First of the season birds and Cape May Warbler (Jackson County)
From: Joseph Mosley <birder.je AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 28 Sep 2014 16:35:34 -0500
The bird migration has seemed to picked up here in western Missouri the
last few days. The 25th I had a Dark-eyed Junco visit the yard, which
according to eBird is early. On the 27th I had my FOS Yellow-bellied
Sapsucker in Henry County.

This morning as I was walking my dog, I noticed that there was a lot of
warblers chirping and flying around. So I went inside to get my binoculars
to see if there was any interesting ones. Sure enough there was
Black-throated Green, Nashville, Tennessee, Orange-crowned Warblers, Common
Yellowthroat, and Blue-headed Vireo, but the best of all was an adult male
in either prebasic molt or basic plumage. I was able to get some video
footage of the bird before it left the yard.

Besides seeing 3 or 4 Nelson's sparrows (and probably more not seen, or
seen only in flight), there were at least 10 sedge wrens and perhaps 40
marsh wrens in the area. Also heard many soras (but none seen). The habitat
is really good east of Heron pond. On the pond itself there were two lesser
and two greater yellowlegs, and the usual number of killdeer. A harrier was
cruising the area.

From: Michael Thelen <mikethelen AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 2014 21:04:41 -0500
There were 2 SAVANNAH SPARROW in the grassy-weedy field just past the horse
trailer parking lot, left of the gravel road, at Columbia Bottom CA Sat
afternoon.  1 MAGNOLIA WARBLER behind the VC.

The water is way up at Riverlands and I didn't see any exposed mud flats,
but there seemed to be an extraordinarily lot of flotsam backed up in Ellis
Bay.  Except for KILLDEER the only other shorebird I had was 1 GREATER
YELLOWLEGS.

But the Heron Pond trail was productive and I hiked it from Riverlands Way
to Orton Rd and back.  This birder tried a high-pitched whoop-whoop-whoop
along the trail -- learned from a pro when birding the coastal marshes of
North Carolina -- which elicited a call-back chorus from a minimum of 6
SORA.  Great, close-up look at 2 MARSH WREN, one singing.  Also 5 COMMON
YELLOWTHROAT, 6 SWAMP SPARROW, 3 very early WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW, 15 INDIGO
BUNTING, 1 DICKCISSEL and 1 BOBOLINK.

There was 1 extremely interesting medium-sized hawk that flew from the
ground ahead of me up to the big tree at the Orton Rd parking lot.  He got
away before I could study carefully but I had a few seconds to see:  while
perched, bare-legged appearance and lean-forward posture, so the head, body
and tail were horizontal; here's the weird part, underparts appeared almost
clean white, except for limited spotting or streaking on the right side and
there appeared to be a rufousy patch on just the right side of the breast,
the right side being the only side I had any look at; it flew out of the
tree straight away from me but the tail might have had wide, alternating
light and dark bands; wings might have been pointed but I'm not sure; wings
steady flapping, not flap-sail.

On the walk back to Riverlands Way something besides me stimulated SORA to
call again, at least 10 individuals by my count that time, with the sound
coming from all different points around the Heron Pond marsh.

Again, warblers showed up outside my kitchen window at supper time. I’m 
having trouble believing this, as it never happened in previous years. Tonight, 
about twenty feet up and still in gorgeous plumage: 

Black-throated Green
Magnolia

Another half dozen birds were too high up to ID.

But two actually came near the concrete bird bath I have on the flat area of 
the driveway and sat for a couple of minutes on the supports for the patio 
tomato plants, next to two chickadees, waiting for the titmice to finish 
bathing: 

Blue-wing (looking tiny there with the Chickadees)
Tennessee (best guess)

There were also a couple of Summer Tanagers singing in the woods, and mine left 
a couple of weeks ago, so presumably migrants.

Is there already, or will there eventually be, a way to embed photos
besides having to use Flickr? I had done this a few times before they
changed the service to Yahoo login only. I do not have a Yahoo account and
I am not going to create one just to embed photos into eBird.

I could easily upload them straight into eBird if this were an option, or
use some other service like Picasa, but I do not know of any way to upload
without Flickr.

Mike et al.-

Picasa used to work very well (I used it myself), but when Google switched 
Picasa to Google+ the functionality that allowed photo embedding seems to have 
disappeared. If anyone knows how to embed Picasa photos, please let me know! 
Picasa users *may* be able to provide a direct link to their photo albums, 
similar to users with personal webpages, but that's not something I have 
experience with. 


Users with Google Drive *may* be able to use that service to add photos to 
eBird checklists. This webpage seems to describe that process fairly well: 
http://www.aboywhocriedheron.com/tag/how-to-embed-photos-in-an-ebird-checklist/ 


eBird does not currently have its own photo uploading system in place, but 
development of this tool is in the pipeline for Team eBird. Once eBird gets 
that system in place (It will not be this calendar year) there should be no 
need for 3rd party websites for image hosting. 


Cheers,
Ryan

Is there already, or will there eventually be, a way to embed photos besides 
having to use Flickr? I had done this a few times before they changed the 
service to Yahoo login only. I do not have a Yahoo account and I am not going 
to create one just to embed photos into eBird. 


I could easily upload them straight into eBird if this were an option, or use 
some other service like Picasa, but I do not know of any way to upload without 
Flickr.

As an eBird reviewer, I LOVE seeing photos in checklists (even for 'regular'

embedding a photo changed. 


Unfortunately, using the default settings makes the embedded photos very tiny

Subject: Red Knot - New Addition to my MO Life List
From: James Hickner <hickner AT SBCGLOBAL.NET>
Date: Thu, 25 Sep 2014 20:46:14 -0500
Yesterday I got off work early and drove up to Riverlands to see the Red Knot 
and finally got to see it in my second try. I was there last Saturday but I was 
unaware of the sighting of Red Knot. I did see the White-rumped Sandpiper, 
Baird's Sandpiper, and two Semipalmated Sandpipers and also some Greater 
Yellowlegs and three Pectoral Sandpipers on the other side of Ellis Island. 
Monday morning I went back there before going to work but did not find the Red 
Knot. I saw three American Golden Plovers in nonbreeding plumage and several 
Least Sandpipers. Yesterday I got to see the Red Knot but not without help from 
Nila Petty and her husband who were viewing the bird at that moment. Also saw 
an American Avocet, three Least Sandpipers, and an immature Bald Eagle. I know 
Red Knot is seldom seen in the Midwest. 


Good birding, 
Jim Hickner

Actually (Reading messages is hard), I had sent a text message to Charlene on 
the morning of the 15th saying "yesterday" it was found on Cora Island Road. So 
it was on the 14th we looked and couldn't find.

On the 15th a seemly knowledgeable birder from Indiana that just moved here 
told me about a juv Red Knot seen in the morning on Cora Island Road. His 
description was very good. We looked in the afternoon but could not find. So 
that 10 day window might be running out. 

Of coarse, at this time I didn't have a clue what one looked like other then in 
Sibley's. 


Here's my photos from the 21st.

Deepa and MoBirders:

There is some hope that the Red Knot will be around until about Sept 30, Tues, 
next week. On average fall migrant shorebirds move slower than the spring 
migrants. I think this Red Knot was first seen on Sept 20, and I assume it was 
seen close to its arrival date. I don’t recall where I read it or heard it 
but a stopover during migration to refuel for the next migration leap averages 
about 10 days. That’s allows the shorebirds time to put on enough fat to fly, 
sometimes nonstop, to the next refueling locations, which may be in Panama, or 
even all the way to the southern cone or South America. There must be a 
shorebird scholar on Mobirds that can update us on energetics and assure us 
that it will still be here for the rest of the month?

Well, about that Red Knot, I am Green with Envy! We could not spot any of the 
birds that have been reported from here....and since I will always need a car 
to get there, I don't anticipate going to Riverlands again before I go home to 
India. 


But ...whenever you see it....or the Sandpipers, or the Avocets, or the 
Phalaropes...will you say hi from me?

Subject: Not many birds....
From: Deepa Mohan <mohandeepa AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 25 Sep 2014 09:14:31 +0530
There are occasions when it's not so much about the birds as about the
birders. Edge and June got together and took me to the Riverlands Bird
Sanctuary, and I enjoyed myself so thoroughly, even though it was the Red
Not rather than the Red Knot, Phala-Nope rather than Phalarope, and A No
Cet rather than Avocet.

All those other birds that have been reported in glowing terms from this
area,  were conspicous by their absence, even to Edge and June's
experienced eyes. The Sandpiper I hoped for turned out to be a Kildeer.

However, the two immature Bald Eagles fishing on the river were a big bonus
for me. Cormorants, Ring-billed Gulls, and some "Greats"...Egrets and
Herons...made up a beautiful riverscape.

High overhead, a large group (insert correct collective noun here) of
American Pelicans soaring in the bright blue sky, with a couple of Bald
Eagles and Broad-winged Hawks (a lifer for me), made our happiness
literally a pain in the neck.

Barn Swallows soared and swooped, too, and though we moved to the dam area
and later went up the Confluence trail, we realized that this was not going
to be one of those long-list birding days.

But my two great "lifers" of the day.... were Edge and June! Two great
people, who instantly made me feel at ease, and who took a lot of trouble
to take me around, and showed me (especially on the Confluence trail)
various plants, amphibians, and told me factoids....I enjoyed the migrating
Monarchs, the toads that June spotted, and Edge picked up, the damselflies,
and even photographed a hornet up close and personal,  without getting
stung!

I've made a blog post about the birding part:

http://deponti.livejournal.com/1095474.html

With a big thank you, once again, to the Mobirds list-serv, and three
cheers for the birding I've done on 4 continents,

Doris Fitchett and Myrna Carlton plan to check on the Swallow situation since I 
will not be able to for awhile, and will get updates to the list serve. 


I took the dog out this morning by the lake across from the Green Hills Golf 
course. Pretty quiet, but did have a nice flock of 75+ Cedar Waxwings. Sparrows 
not in yet with exception of a single Lincoln's. I also had single Marsh Wren 
and single Sedge Wren. Had Carolina Wren in yard today and House Wren singing 
couple days ago. Heard Barred Owl hooting several times in the night from our 
bedroom here in middle of town. 



Had first few Persimmons couple days ago. Not sweet yet, but no pucker either.

I ran down last evening to check on the Swallow Show. Started on Kaye road 
where they usually are, always other stuff to see from there too. Egrets and 
waterfowl flying by to the west. Some Swallows were flying around, but not big 
numbers, then fewer, then more coming back in so thought maybe that had moved 
roosting spot and would be here again., but no Huge Mass developed like we are 
accustomed to, so sped back up North to Elmira where they were last week - No 
Swallows! In the fading light I ran back down to Kaye road thinking maybe that 
had gathered there after all - but did not see them. Was almost to dark by then 
anyway. Very limited time to find them when they move between time they gather 
in large mass and when it gets too late. So for now don't know what they are 
doing, or where they are going. I will not be able to check again for some 
time. Will update when I can.

Lots of birds at Audubon Trails Nature Center this morning but the surprise of 
the day was a single adult male Evening Grosbeak. He sat on top of a brush pile 
for at least 40 seconds just looking around. Also of note was a Blue headed 
Vireo, fist fall Wilsons Warbler, at least six Kentucky Warblers, Tennessee 
Warbler and a couple of Common Yellowthroats. Eastern Wood Pewee, Sedge Wrens 
and Marsh Wrens are also in the area. A good size mixed flock of Indigo 
Buntings and Field Sparrows. Just in time for the fall meeting.

Birders: The Juvenile Red Knot was at RMBS this morning. I observed it
along the shoreline of Ellis Bay not too far down from the dam. It was only
about 30 yards from the road and I was able to get some good photos out the
car window. This was at about 10:45am. I left to look for other birds and
returned to where the Red Knot was feeding about a half hour later and it
was gone. I looked in other spots nearby but failed to relocate it.

Subject: Dead Barred Owl
From: Stephen Reese <cheste AT SWBELL.NET>
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:04:50 -0700
I teach in Cass County (Pleasant Hill) and had to go into school yesterday. At 
the intersection of State Route BB and 175th I saw a dead Barred Owl. I got out 
of the car to make certain it was dead because it appeared to be lying on its 
back. It was dead but in remarkable condition. 


I thought it was illegal to collect dead raptors and owls so I left it in the 
road. When I arrived at school I spent the better part of half an hour 
attempting to contact the Missouri Department of Conservation. I was not able 
to find a line where I could leave a voice message unless I knew someone's 
extension. 


I decided to call the Cass County Sheriff's office and see if they had a 
contact at the DOC. I reached a helpful dispatcher who took my name and number 
and said she would contact a conservation agent. I received a call within a 
half hour. The agent said that Barred Owls are not uncommon and that the 
department was not interested in the bird. 


My question, is there someone else (or organization) I should contact or am I 
just mistaken about the public collecting dead raptors or owls?

Subject: Changing O' The Guards - RC Kinglets, Binder Lake, 9/21, Cole Co.
From: Chris Barrigar <1chrisbarrigar AT LIVE.COM>
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:18:09 -0600
Greetings Friends of Feathers!

 

Yesterday's Sunday morning quick visit to Binder Lake of Jefferson City, MO 
(Cole Co.) yielded a changing of the guards, so to speak. ~8:30-~9:30am. 


 

Instead of four Blackburnian Warblers observed two weeks ago, I observed 4 
Ruby-crowned Kinglets working the same area as the earlier Blackburnians. The 
location is the field further down the Lake road beyond the covered handicap 
fishing dock. The RC Kinglets were occasionally sounding their two syllable 
chip notes "ch-tit". Also observed a Least Flycatcher at this same location. 


 

The pair of Mute Swans still remain on the lake staying well away from fishing 
boats - probably escapees/domestic. About 70+ Blue-winged Teal were observed 
first over the lake then observed on the flooded shorebird pond (no shorebird 
habitat other than along the large lake's edges). About 36/37 Pied-billed 
Grebes were present. I also observed three Spotted Sandpipers flutter-gliding 
across the large lake and landing on the rip-rap section of the dam. 


 

On the home front:

Still have an occasionally calling Great-crested Flycatcher and a least two 
Summer Tanagers. Still hearing an occasional "VEEK" call of Rose-breasted 
Grosbeaks. Noticing a considerable increase in Northern Flickers! 


 

Note: All birds observed were/are either juvenile, adults in transitional or 
basic plumage (if applicable). 


 

Good Birding!

I poked around this area on west side of Pershing SP. again this morning. Lots 
of same birds as few days ago, plus a few new ones. Had one Lincoln's, and 
couple of Savannah Sparrows - first of many of more of these to come for this 
place. Song Sparrows too, and many Indigo Buntings. Flushed a dozen Soras, plus 
heard more, and saw total of 20 Marsh Wrens. Saw 12 -15 Dickcissels, and a few 
Bobolinks still there. One female Northern Harrier cruising over. Flock of 28 
Pelicans flew over. 



Swan Lake NWR - interior remains closed. Lots of water in places where it 
shouldn't be. 


Couple of Common Nighthawks over Wal-Mart parking lot, South end of Chillicothe

Oriole?...very dark...NO!...... 

It's an American Redstart...NO! there are actually 2 of them. They were feeding 
on something in the Red Bud tree. What a treat! Is this a late date? 

Also we still have the Gray Catbirds hanging around and all the other usuals.
A very good morning!

I have three juvies - the Cardinals around here seem awfully busy!   I had a
lot this winter so perhaps they stayed in the neighborhood.   I flushed
three hens and three/four smaller Wild Turkeys when I went out to feed the
birds.  They flew madly down the hill with two landing in trees - a nice
sight to see but sorry I disturbed their foraging .

The gates are wide open at Riverlands and the mud flats are back. Hundreds of 
Pelicans this morning and a few shorebirds: Semi-palmated plovers, Killdeer, 
Peeps, a couple Pectorals and 2 Avocets. 



The Confluence state Park road had a Peregrine falcon and lots of ducks on the 
"phalarope" pond.Also had a few Bobolinks in a weedfield next to the road. Lots 
of ducks on the water on Cora Island and School House road - Mallards, 
pintails,wood-ducks, shovelers, teal and a couple gadwall. There were ducks in 
the air all morning. 


I took the Brussels Ferry to Swan lake looking for more mud flats. No mud 
flats, lots of water but very few birds. 


Saw lots of raptors throughout the day- Eagles, an Osprey (at Lincoln-shields), 
broadwings,harriers,kestrels redtails. It seems whenever I had a raptor in the 
binoculars there were more further off in the background.

Short stop at Tower Grove Park this morning. Place was overrun with Black & 
White Warblers and 

Redstarts. I probably saw 15 B&W and an equal number of 
Redstarts in two hours. Or I saw five of each and ran into the same flock three 
times. Either way, a lot of small, acrobatic birds flitting around. I never 
knew Black & Whites could fly up and land upside down on the underside of a 
branch. Redstarts did a lot of death spirals from top of canopy down to low 
branches. Very entertaining. 



Also saw Bluewing, Wilson's and Ovenbird, Bonus 
was a juvenile Cooper's Hawk, probably a male from the size.

Subject: Shaw Hawk Watch Saturday 9/20: TRIP ADJUSTMENT
From: Christian Hagenlocher <Christian.Hagenlocher AT PRINCIPIA.EDU>
Date: Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:05:23 +0000
Birding Friends,

Scroll to 'Change of Plan' below to see how this trip has changed as a result 
of Prairie Day activities at Shaw Nature Reserve. 


Coming up on Saturday, I invite you to meet me in St. Louis for a great morning 
of birding camaraderie and (hopefully) raptors! 


The ST. LOUIS AUDUBON SOCIETY is sponsoring a birding field trip at SHAW NATURE 
RESERVE 

 on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 8:00 AM. (This has been moved earlier to 
focus on passerine migrants) 

(expect to end at noon to ~1:30)

DIRECTIONS: From St. Louis take I-44 West to Highway 100 (Gray's Summit Exit) 
Turn left back over 44 and then turn right. The entrance is on the immediate 
left. 


MEET at the Bascom House Visitor Center Parking lot promptly at 8am; rest rooms 
are nearby. 


CHANGE OF PLAN: This is a half-day trip, exploring the forested areas and 
prairie around the Bascom house, to observe fall migration, with an emphasis on 
raptors and warblers. Weather is not ideal for migrating raptors but we should 
get a good diversity of whatever birds are in the area. If birding is slow, we 
can explore more forested areas of Shaw to look for resident raptors and 
migrant passerines. 


Important: Due to Prairie Day happening at the Maritz Trail House (where we 
have set up in the past), we have moved to the Bascom house backyard. You can 
park at the visitors lot at Bascom House. Prairie Day parking is off-property 
at Shaw, so it shouldn't be too crowded. 


AREA MAP: http://www.mobot.org/snr/PDFs/SNRVisitorGuide.pdf

GOAL: Today I scouted the area and had a great diversity of warblers, 
grosbeaks, vireos, and several raptor species including kettles of Broad-winged 
Hawks. 


BRING: Your spotting scopes, a folding chair or comfortable pair of standing 
shoes, binoculars, and any hawk ID books you wish to use or share with the 
group (Hawks from Every Angle, etc.) I will bring my collection of materials to 
share. 


Bring a Picnic Lunch and your own drink to eat when you get hungry.
TRIP COST: There is a $3 entrance fee to Shaw, but the trip is free! Members of 
Missouri Botanical Garden get in free. 

 Everyone is welcome,  members and especially non-members and new birders

Mom and I went down to Eagle Bluffs this afternoon. Kind of a preview of the 
CAS field trip this weekend. We had two Northern Harriers cruising pool 10. Saw 
two and possibly a third Coppers Hawk, an Osprey, a female Rose-breasted 
Grossbeak, 5 Cedar Waxwings and heard one Gray Catbird. All in all a fun day. 
Full report on Cache.

Subject: Swan Lake, and Swallows, and stuff..

I went down to check on conditions at Swan Lake NWR, Chariton Co.yesterday 
afternoon. The refuge is open to the Visitor center, though the main levee road 
is rough in places where the water went across. The rest of the refuge, and all 
other gates are still closed with lots of water on interior fields and roads. 
Swan Lake pool is an open lake again now that all the Lotus is under water. I 
counted 45 Pied-billed Grebes scattered around, plus Ducks, Pelicans, 
Cormorants, and Gulls. 


I had stopped at the Zell tract on the west side of Pershing SP on the way 
down. Lots of water there too, so birds were moved around. Flocks of BW Teal, 
and some other Dabblers. Flushed a dozen Soras while walking one levee, had 
half a dozen Marsh Wrens, and a few Common Yellowthroats in a stand of 
Cattails. Couple of House Wrens on another levee, couple Dickcissels, but only 
a few Bobolinks this time. Only Sparrows found were Song. 



I met Doris Fitchett later in the evening to check on the Swallows from Kaye 
road. that gather each fall in the Locust creek bottoms a few miles south of 
Pershing SP. We watched for awhile as the Swallows started coming in, observing 
a pair of Northern Harriers, several dozen Great Egrets flying to roost, flocks 
of Horned Larks, and other things too. Doris had seen a Palm Warbler in the 
road on the way. We kept watching, then realized the Swallows were all moving 
North, so had to jump in our vehicles and speed up to the next road to find 
where the birds were going to mass before going down to roost in the 
cornfields. This turned out to be in the bottoms on south side of Elmira Rd, 
which is one mile north of Kaye rd where they usually go. Large number of 
Swallows, but not near usual numbers at their peak staging time.We will 
continue to check on them in the next few weeks. 

 Saw Great Horned Owl on utility pole on the way out.
