We are still regularly banding Brown Thrashers at our bird banding stations on 
the Missouri Western State University Campus here in St. Joseph. (Along with 
many Gray Catbirds.

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!

Just got home.
Tried to post earlier from smartphone but did not go through.

Riverlands MBS, St. Charles co.
obs: Bill and Margret Rowe
Jim and Charlene Malone

Birding area due to extensive mudflats and ahead of cold front
for wind birds (shorebirds) Peak time was 4-6 PM when birds were
coming and going quickly(!) Red Knot could not be re-found
not long after initial sighting.

Highlights:
RED KNOT - juvie bird. Ellis Bay across from "Tri-colored Heron" Pond or 
about
half way between Heron Pond and the observation deck. Right along the road.
BR find
WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER - Ellis Bay across from Heron Pond. BR find
photos and doc. to follow.
COMMON TERN - Ellis Bay across from Teal Pond. CM/JM find.
SNOW GOOSE, blue phase - Teal Pond
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER - limping on leg. Ellis Bay across from Heron Pond

Thought I heard Sora while viewing White-rumped.
STILT SANDPIPERS - 8, flew in at end of day, across from Wise road.
PLOVER sp. - 8, Linc. Shields, viewing into sun. poss. BB by call but 
not 100%.
PEREGRINE - top of Clark Bridge Column closest to IL side.
LOTS of R-B Gulls flying around catching bugs. 3 Herring Gulls and thought
I saw a Bonaparte's Gull but could not re-find. Prime for rarity
Ammodramus sp. - Jim saw from Teal Pond levee pathway. Sharp-tailed sparrow

No time to look at Alton Lake Access from West Alton boat ramp area
or South Linc. Shields area (Stonehenge) from rock lined parking lot along
Hwy 67. Extensive mudflats in all these areas.

Rather birdy day!

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 
last evening. 


House Wren on the back deck.

Just watching out the south windows this morning for 'hummers' and anything 
else that might come along...wow! There's something different...an 
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.

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.

Kennedy Forest is also very birdy this afternoon. On a short "break" from the 
office, I saw Black and white, chestnut-sided, blue-winged, magnolia (I think) 
warblers and a number of other warbler species that I couldn't get to hold 
still long enough to ID. Also phoebes, a plethora of woodpeckers, and more 
common birds. Also had a catbird stop by as I was typing this. All were spread 
about along the gravel trails just east of the savannah.

Morning, all.

The last two nights in Forest Park in St. Louis had two amazing bird
sightings in the same tree, one of the owls' favorites.  Last night was my
first sighting of an Osprey in Forest Park and the night before was an

We've still got several of them calling all over my neighborhood on the north 
side of Columbia. 


Incidentally, I don't think it's late to see Gray Catbirds in MO, even in 
North-Central MO... In fact, showme-birds says this is a great time to see 
them: 

http://www.showme-birds.com/index_files/GrayCatbirdRecords.htm

"R & E (1992): The bulk of the migrants pass through during the last ten days 
of Sept and the first few days of Oct. But by the beginning of the second week 
of Oct few birds are seen, and after early Nov it is only casually 
encountered." 


Cheers and good birding,

Hey Deepa - Congrats on the Osprey find. I was about to send an email to
the listserve myself before I saw yours, but I'll second your observation
at the Grand Basin, as well as Post-Dispatch Lake. I saw the Osprey
yesterday (Sunday) at around 2pm. It was quite surprising to see the bird
fishing in the Basin among 4 paddle-boats and the crowd from the St. Louis
Fair!

We too had a Gray Catbird yesterday, Sunday. Sept. 14. It bathed in the 
birdbath for at least 10 minutes...getting ready for a long trip south, I 
guess. 


Kinda fun watching the G. Catbird and a RT Hummingbird out the same window at 
the same time. RT made several trips to it's feeder while Catbird was there.

I don't see the Cooper's as often as I see the Red-tailed Hawk...so I did a
little reading when Danny Brown and I caught sight of one. Here's the post:

We were trying to see if we could see the Osprey at the Grand Basin in
Forest Park; but instead, we were rewarded by the sight of a juvenile
Double-crested Cormorant fishing there, working up and down the fountains.

Thank you for a lovely morning, Danny!

Cheers, Deepa.

Subject: SLAS Field Trip: Hawk Watch Saturday 9/20
From: Christian Hagenlocher <Christian.Hagenlocher AT PRINCIPIA.EDU>
Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2014 02:30:31 +0000
Birding Friends,

Coming up in 6 days, 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 and picnic at 
SHAW NATURE RESERVE 

 on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 9:00 AM. (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 Visitor Center Parking lot promptly at 9am; rest rooms are nearby.

PLAN: This is a half-day trip, exploring the higher points of Shaw Nature 
Reserve from mid-morning to early afternoon, to observe fall migration, with an 
emphasis on raptors. Temps will rise from 65 degrees to 85 middday. Winds are 
forecasted to be 10mph from the South, so not ideal for migrating raptors but 
we should get a good diversity of whatever birds are in the area. I am assuming 
we can gain exclusive access to a nice overlook we have used in the past. If 
birding is slow, we can explore more forested areas of Shaw to look for 
resident raptors and migrant passerines. I will scout it out before the trip 
starts. 


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

Important: It is paramount to arrive early or on time, as we will likely be 
carpooling past a closed gate and locking it behind us, and unlocking it at 
noon and 1pm for folks to head out. Latecomers can park at the visitors center 
Bascom House and walk to the Sod House or Maritz Trail House. 


GOAL: Last year participants enjoyed a beautiful fall day with light winds, and 
saw 8 of 10 of predicted raptor species. See list below: 


Broad-winged Hawk 14
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1
Turkey Vulture 41
Red-tailed Hawk 9
Cooper's Hawk 1
Bald Eagle 2
Merlin 1
Red-shouldered Hawk 4
Accipiter sp. 2

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. If folks 
would like to bring food to share, please email me off-list and we can 
coordinate a "group" style picnic, but right now I'm assuming everyone bringing 
their own food. If a group-styled picnic is desired, I would love help 
coordinating it and a separate email will be sent out with details the week of 
the trip. 


TRIP COST: There is a $3 entrance fee to Shaw, but the trip is free! Everyone 
is welcome, members and especially non-members and new birders 


MORE INFO: E-mail me at 
missouribirdman AT yahoo.com or visit 
http://www.stlouisaudubon.org 


I will post a reminder the day before, hoping all may be able to join.

Cheers,

Christian Hagenlocher
St. Louis, MO

I went down to Swan Lake NWR, Chariton Co. yesterday to check out the flooding. 
Much of the interior of the refuge looked to be under water with more pouring 
in to Swan Lake itself, coming over the main levee road like waterfalls in 
several places. No doubt the refuge will remain closed for some time. Thousands 
of Swallows were feeding low over the flooded fields. 

 I had stopped at Pershing SP on the way down and found some Warblers and other 
birds. Many of the Warblers were feeding in Walnut trees again. Must be where 
the good caterpillars are. The Warblers I observed were Tennessee, 
Orange-crowned, Nashville, Northern Parula, Chestnut-sided, Black and White, 
American Redstart, Northern Waterthrush, and Wilson's. Some of the other birds 
included Rose-breasted Grosbeak, BG Knatcatcher, Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher, 
White-eyed Vireo, Indigo Bunting, Pileated Woodpecker, Red-shouldered Hawk, and 
many Red-headed Woodpeckers. 


 I also stopped and walked into the part of the Zell tract that is on the SE 
side of the park. Saw a group of 8 - 10 Dickcissels, and a few Bobolinks, but 
only Sparrows were couple of Field Sparrows. 



Later,

Awesome!

I was fortunate enough to be out on our property yesterday morning and looked 
up just in time to see a Merlin and a juvenile Cooper's Hawk circling/sparing 
with one another as they were gaining altitude. 


Later as I kept an eye to the sky, I saw Red-headed Woodpeckers migrating 
southward - I saw only 7, but since it was close to 11 am, maybe more had 
already passed. 


For some of you that may have not seen this. Look closely at migrating Bluejays 
- closely. I've observed some carrying acorns for their sack lunch during their 
trip. 


Keep Calm and Bird On!

Felt like a pretty classic morning to see a good movement of 
hawks this morning
 While doing yard work this morn at my 
house in Ballwin kept an eye on the sky for any  streaming 
raptors flying across

 First ones started showing up about 
930.Considering where I was It was a pretty good showing 
of birds
 Have to guess if I was in a better spot the numbers 
probably would have been higher

 Heres what I had between 930 and 
1100 this morn

 5-bald eagles
 2-ospreys
 8-broad 
wing hawks
 6-7- accipters
 1-n-harrier

Subject: Another superb morning of birding in Forest Park!
From: Deepa Mohan <mohandeepa AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2014 03:40:10 +0530
Hi...hope the rest of you are having as good a time as I did this morning!
The weather being absolutely perfect, I walked to Kennedy Forest, and
started with the "a-b-c"...the Robins, the Starlings and the Sparrows,
until I found some Chickadees and a few Warblers (alas, they didn't have
nice readable name tags, so I can't tell you their names...or I'll have to
call them Tom, Dick and Harry.)

I moved down to the facade of the Art Museum, and while coming down Art
Hill, came across an extraordinary spectacle...at least, to me, because
I've not seen this bird at Forest Park before. It was a large raptor, and
the behaviour was typical of a fish-eating bird. My first thought,
"Red-tailed Hawk" was instantly dismissed....the "jizz" was all wrong.

My new binocs have not been delivered, so I used my camera zoom to track
the bird, and was quite delighted that this bird seemed to be an Osprey!
 Certainly, it fished the Grand Basin in Grand style, let one fish
slip...and then caught another huge one, and bore it away. I agree that I
am no expert birder, and would like you to confirm the bird's id for
me...this certainly looks like Ospreys I've seen in India, and more
recently, in Sweden. (I do not know if this mailing list allows
attachments, I'm attaching a  couple of rather highly-cropped photos.)
Could you let me know if it is quite common for Ospreys to come in from the
rivers nearby and fish here? This was the first time I've seen this
happening, so I was quite thrilled! Sorry for the terrible photos, but I
was far away...and caught quite unprepared. Here's a bad video that I
quickly shot:

http://youtu.be/B_6ckTi02jE

Here are the pictures of the bird, on my FB album:


https://www.facebook.com/deemopahan/media_set?set=a.10152446214213878.1073742254.587058877&type=3 



I then walked to what is rapidly becoming my favourite haunt in Forest
Park...the area of flowing water near the suspension bridge. Once again,
some unusual events rewarded me. The Belted Kingfisher, of course, was
present; but it's seldom that I see two Woodpeckers on the same tree at the
same time! A Northern Flicker (I'm so used to photo storage that I keep
forgetting the "e" in the bird's name!) and a Red-headed Woodpecker were
there on the same tree...and the bonus was that the latter had a fledgling
that she was feeding!  I got some photos and a video of this, too:

http://youtu.be/01t_Ab4Wxnk

and returned home with the Osprey still soaring far overhead, with a Green
Heron enacting the Patient Fisherman for me.

I'll be there tomorrow morning, too...so anyone who'd like to join me is
welcome.(I  reach Forest Park at the History Museum, walk to the Kennedy
Forest first and then walk back...and I must mention that I 'step on the
grass' all the time..I don't keep to the paved paths always, and usually
arrive home with dripping shoes and socks.)

How I wish I had Forest Park Forever and Audubon Society experts with me,
to help identify so many of the birds!

Waiting for your responses on the "is it or is it not an Osprey?" question.

Id'd birds on today's outing will be posted to e-Bird soon :D

Cheers, Deepa.

The group at the Audubon Nature Sanctuary in Columbia saw 4-5 Gray Catbirds 
this morning. We heard them call quite a bit as well. They're still around as 
of today at least.

This morning while near Ruth Park Golf Course in U City, I saw a flock of 
200-300 American White Pelicans circling around in classic migration pattern. 
Don’t think that I have ever seen them over U City before, certainly not in 
these numbers.

Nan Johnson, June Land, and myself heard a Gray Catbird at Squaw Creek
National Wildlife Refuge.  It was in the bushes in the upper parking lot of
the headquarters.  Same place where they are often sighted throughout the
summer.  This sighting was on Thursday, September 11. For a northern
location, we all were very surprised it was still there!

Last evening I looked around parts of the Zell Tract on the west side of 
Pershing SP, Linn Co. This is just north of the area the Fulvous Whistling-Duck 
was reported from last wknd. With Teal and Dove hunting in some of the private 
wetlands, thought this site might provide a safer refuge if the Duck was still 
around. I heard shooting both north and south of the area while I was there. I 
had a mixed flock of 200+ Dabbling ducks at one pool, plus 40 Great Egrets, and 
flock of 100+ Pelicans, -but NO FUWD. Had to look though! I flushed total of 17 
Soras while walking around, and heard more. Saw a few Dickcissels still around, 
some mixed in with small flocks of Bobolinks. Had a Marsh Wren or two and some 
other LBJs darting around through the grass. On the way back to my vehicle had 
flock of about 650 Pelicans fly over heading South.

I swung by Weston Bend SP late Sunday afternoon. Saw two Nashville Warblers and 
that was it, not much going on. May have just been time of day, but I doubt it. 


I saw more migrants Sat at Squaw Creek NWR, but no warblers. My favorite was a 
female Merlin.
