There is currently a Lapland Longspur along hwy 65 halfway between Henefer and 
Henefer Lek where Snow Bunting was seen in December. It is currently foraging 
along the road with about two dozen Horned Larks. This bird was seen yesterday 
by a group of Wasatch Audubon members on a field trip and reported to ebird in 
Morgan County, it is actually in Summit County.

From: "caitlin.ceci" <caitlin.ceci AT gmail.com>

Hello Birders,
Can anyone provide me with the current info on this owl's whereabouts?  I 
wonder perhaps if there is an attempt to keep it somewhat quiet since there 
has been some bad behavior in the field... I respect that initiative, 
however, it would also make my day, along with that of one of my professors 
to get some updated information. For what it's worth I am not in 
interloper, I have been a member of this listserv since 2009. A private 
email is fine.

Thanks everyone, by the way, for ALL of your posts. Even when I can't get 
into the field I enjoy reading about what everyone is seeing.

Best,
Caitlin

Subject: Great Gray Owl
From: Janice Vander Molen <janicevandermolen AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 10 Feb 2017 15:15:26 -0700
Our first visit to see the Great Gray Owl was on February 3, 2017. Picture
here:


​That was a very pleasant experience seeing the beautiful owl, and talking
with the other birders there. All of us very happy to be able to observe
it, those with scopes and binoculars offered looks to those who did not
have them. Very nice.

On February 8, 2017, we went to see the Great Gray Owl a second time.
Different location.
We arrived to a crowd of about 10 cars, 15 people. The owl was perched
among a lot of branches.  I was informed by another birder/photographer
that the owl had been in another tree nearby and moved to the present
location about a half hour earlier. The other birder/photographers were
about 50 to 75 feet from owl on both sides of it. I felt they were too
close.We took a few pictures and left about 10 minutes later.

We will not return to the area, twice is enough, especially if so many
still have not had a chance to see it. I have since read, the owl may be a
bit more comfortable in daylight hours being from the northern "midnight
sun" area. We wish to thank those that advised of the owls location, it is
a chance in a lifetime for lots of people.

Subject: Great Gray Owl
From: "'Dennis Shirley' via UtahBirdsHotline" <utahbirdshotline AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Fri, 10 Feb 2017 19:05:36 +0000 (UTC)
 The Great Gray Owl was present, along with 23 birders/photographers this 
morning at 8-9am on the hillside east of the  airport in Mountain Green. It 
has been in this area for the last few days and was first found on the ground 
apparently foraging in the sagebrush for mice and later perched in cottonwoods 
where it was much easier to see. It seemed oblivious to our presence.

Hey, I just thought I'd throw a caution out there about audible-only IDs of
the Blue jay on Antler Way.  When I was there, enjoying the delightful
company of the owners, I heard a call that sounded very much like a Blue
jay and I got a bit excited, until it was explained to me that the resident
African gray parrot (which has quite the voice!) is an accomplished mimic
with an admirable repertoire and the call I heard was in fact Lola.  The
bird seems to live close enough to the back yard so as to be very loud back
there.

I'm not in any way poo-pooing anyone's ID, but just thought I'd throw that
bit of info out there so people can ensure for themselves that the calls
they hear are not coming from inside the house.  Or, conversely, for those
who want to have a caged parrot on their list, this is your chance!

Also, has anyone actually seen the jay in recent days?  The last sighting I
personally know of was quite a long time ago.  I know some people like to
enjoy their bird experiences without making a fuss about them, so maybe
there are unreported sightings we don't know about.  Heck, I'd sure love to
visit the good people on Antler Way again.

Subject: Farmington Bay
From: Linda Butler <lindawriter AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2017 13:35:36 -0700
Is Farmington Bay open/available for birdwatching? I want to take a friend
out there to see eagles on Monday (ML King Day) and want to know if it's
open. I was told by the Ogden DWS it closes tomorrow but I think that
concerns hunting. Binoculars are our weapons of choice. I went up there in
the winter about 8+ years ago but don't know how it's regulated now. I
can't find anything online newer than 2008.
If Farmington Bay isn't an option, what's a good place to view eagles? I
live in No. Utah Co.
Thanks for your help,
Linda

From: KC C <orembirder AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 2 Jan 2017 18:19:03 -0700
On the Payson Christmas Bird Count today I ran across a Red Shouldered
Hawk. It was located in a group of homes in the farm fields west of town
flying low from tree to tree around this grouping of homes. It seemed to
prefer the home with the domestic duck and geese at it.

The address is 4126 West 9200 South. This is a county address, and not city
of Payson. It is easiest to get to off the north Payson exit with the
McDonald's. It was an adult bird and was there the entire 20 minutes I
watched it. There was one seen a few miles north of this area last year on
the same bird count. I got a very poor photo of it, but you can see the
black and white checkered markings on the back.

Here is a little more info on the EASTERN BLUEBIRDS seen during the Jordan 
River CBC today. They were a Male female pair in some Russian Olives just west 
of the ebay building, which is located at 583 W eBay Way(13000 S.), Draper, 
UT. They were right along the paved Jordan River parkway trail, just south of 
some houses. There were a lot of Robins, Starlings, Finches and Sparrows 
around, but they were not really associating with any of them, seemed the pair 
were moving on their own. There were no other Bluebirds species seen during our 
section of the CBC. We also saw an apparent MEXICAN DUCK drake, it was farther 
north, near the 12300 S. Bridge over the Jordan River, with regular Mallards.

saw them here but in the past I have had issues with that giving bad 
directions.

A few days ago a White-winged Dove was reported in Taylorsville. I went 
looking today and found the bird. The address is listed below and the home 
owner was very nice. The dove visits the bird feeders in his back yard. 
When I asked if it was ok if other birders came to see, he was worried 
that a lot of people would show up. He didn't want me to discourage people 
so be carful and respectful if anyone decides to twitch after this county 
rarity.

Subject: Help in identifying a large hawk
From: Denkare via UtahBirdsHotline <utahbirdshotline AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Tue, 27 Dec 2016 16:11:59 -0500
Today all the birds in my backyard disappeared and I noticed a hawk flying  
overhead, then it joined another hawk in a tree a block away.  Then both  
hawks flew overhead together and one appeared to be slightly smaller than the 
 other.  Then the large one landed in a neighbor's yard for a few  seconds. 
 I observed the chest and upper stomach were bright white, like a  large 
white bib.  However I did not see any other identifying marks.   Does anyone 
know what these hawks might be?

Tomorrow is the Morgan CBC. My dad, Garry Mowery and I went out today on a 
scouting trip. We tallied 50 species of birds including a Snow Bunting in a 
flock of Horned Larks about two miles south of the town of Henefer on Hwy 65. 
The birds were feeding out with cows as well as along the road. There is a 
couple of farm houses at this location, the birds were sighted on both the 
south and north sides of these houses. I will post pictures with an ebird list 
later tonight for those interested in seeing them. Anyone out looking tomorrow 
is welcome to email me their lists so I can add it to the count or can come 
along. My email is weston73 AT hotmail.com.

Thanks David for the great directions. We headed out this afternoon in
pouring rain turning to snow, but were rewarded with great views of him.
Saw Killdeer, sparrows, coots, quail and starlings. Did not try for the
Rusty blackbird as we became quite wet and cold and worried about our
cameras.  Here are two of my favorite shots from today.

Subject: Rusty blackbird & Vermilion flycatcher still there by Buffalo Ponds, Farmington
From: David Wheeler <dswheeler AT utah.gov>
Date: Wed, 14 Dec 2016 14:12:12 -0700
Both species were still there this afternoon at 1:20 pm.  The Vermillion
seems ever-present along the fenceline, either side of the Russian olive
(with the bench).  The Rusty blackbird flew in from the large pasture north
of the ponds and landed in the olive.  After making a lot of racket, it
took off again to land in the distant portion of the pasture just SW of the
large mound near the eastern end of the pasture.  It could still be picked
out on the ground there with binoculars, so keep that in mind as a search
strategy--not all dark birds out there are starlings...

There are also several snipes, Greater yellowlegs, and over a hundred
killdeer out there, along with a kingfisher and other critters.

Still there this afternoon, west of the Buffalo Ranches ponds in Farmington. 
Moving around a lot; spending a lot of time along the west fence line where a 
northern harrier is also hanging out. No sign of the rusty blackbird while I 
was there. Thanks to Mike and others for posting these birds.

Fred Adler reported a Vermilion Flycatcher near Glover Ponds.  Here's his
eBird report:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32970738

"Gorgeous male about a mile up the trail behind Glover Ponds (take the
trail past the blue silos to where it right angle turns past a couple of
little ponds).  He was feeding and giving incredible looks at the right
angle turn and I'll be attempting to upload my mediocre photos in a
minute...  I'll definitely say that my jaw dropped when what I expected to
be a sparrow turned out to be this brilliant and rare bird!"

Here is a useful article for those thinking of going after the Arctic
Loon.  It was sent to me by my good bud, Mark Stackhouse:

By the way, the loon-thought-to-be-Arctic was just about three hundred feet
southwest of the Hyrum State Park boat ramp near an orange & white buoy
when I had my best look at it ca. 7:30 am.

Subject: Arctic Loon at Hyrum Reservoir
From: David Wheeler <dswheeler AT utah.gov>
Date: Fri, 18 Nov 2016 10:09:41 -0700
This morning (oh bitter cold!) before dawn, I set off to see if I could get
a look-see at the loon reported to be a possible/likely Arctic loon.  And,
indeed, a loon matching the description of previous observers was there.
It had a very distinct white patch near the tail (extending a couple inches
above the water line), no dark "chin-strap"/"necklace", but otherwise
looked like a pale Pacific loon.  I did not get a look at the nuances of
the head shape.  It spent a lot of time underwater, it was cold, and so I
did not get prolonged looks.  The one good look I got was very satisfying,
however.

There was also at least one Pacific loon (much darker by comparison), at
least one Common loon, and some distant loons.  There were also thousands
of gulls (Ring-billeds, Californias, and *possibly* LBB), ducks, etc.

A Great horned owl hooted up the early dawn from a power pole below the
dam, before flying down into the riparian strip along the Little Bear River.

On the drive back, I was treated to a winter spectacle that made me suck in
my breath.  The low angle rays of the sun lit up the frost-covered plants
at Dry Lake (where whispy fog often transforms into spiny hoar frost)
between Mantua and Cache Valley.  The large crystals of water caught the
morning light and tossed it up in a thousand sparkles diamantine.  I love
this planet...

Stay warm out there, but get out there.  Every season has its beauty.

Subject: Fwd: [UBIRD] Falconry Rules Up for Amendment - Potential Impact Utah Raptors
From: Kenny Frisch <kenneth.frisch AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:17:07 -0700

Subject: [UBIRD] Falconry Rules Up for Amendment - Potential Impact Utah
Raptors
To: UBIRD - Utah Birds and Birders 


Hi Birders,

It is important the birding community know that Utah's Falconry rules are
up for amendment this year. I encourage you to study up on this topic and
participate in the governance of your wildlife.

The Utah Division of Wildlife is weighing a number of requests from members
of the falconry community. One of which is to be allowed to take and keep
any species of wild or exotic raptors. Currently, only certain species are
permitted for falconry in Utah.

A few important items birders may wish to consider:

   - The Utah Falconry Rules and Regulations state that:
   - *3) Raptor species possessed under the authority of this rule must be
      trained in the pursuit of wild game and used in hunting, unless
      specifically noted otherwise in special provisions granted under this
      rule. *
   - Raptor species used in falconry must be suitable as "weapons" to take
   game species.
   - Many species of raptors are not suitable to be used for hunting
   because their biology does not make them suitable to take game. For
   example, many owl species hunt mice at night, not "game."
   - Many species of raptors in Utah are of conservation concern and their
   populations are in decline. These include Golden Eagle (Bird of
Conservation Concern),
   Northern Goshawk (USFS Sensitive Species/Conservation Agreement; Bird of
   Conservation Concern), and many others.
   - If the falconry rules are amended to allow any raptor species, many
   raptor species that are rare in Utah could potentially be permitted for
   take in falconry such as Common Black Hawk, Snowy Owl, and Gryfalcon.
   - Consider the difference between the sport of falconry and the exotic
   pet industry.

In order to participate, the Utah Wildlife Board & Regional Advisory
Councils can receive letters/e-mails, but apparently in person comment is
most important.

Here are the upcoming RAC Meetings (all held at respective Utah Division of
Wildlife Resources offices):

Dec 6 - Central Region (Springville)

Dec 7 - Northern Region (Ogden)

Dec 13 -Southern Region (Cedar City)

Dec 14 - Southeastern (Price)

Dec 15- Northeastern Region (Vernal)



The final decision is at the Wildlife Board Meeting

Jan 3 - Salt Lake City

Subject: Bohemian Waxwings aplenty at the Big Mountain Summit. Surf scoter too.
From: David Wheeler <dswheeler AT utah.gov>
Date: Mon, 7 Nov 2016 16:38:18 -0700
There were something like 60 Bohemian waxwings most (likely all) of the
afternoon just N & NE of the microwave towers on the parking lot side of
the road.  You can hear them from the road, and sometimes there is a flock
that passes overhead.  They are feeding on the red-orange Mountain ash
berries on the shady side of the mountain, but are often perched in the
bare aspens.  Gotta love those Bohemians...

The female-type Surf scoter was still on the north end of Little Dell
Reservoir, and could easily be scoped from the parking lot (with the fee
booth--closed).

Thank you to all who have posted about these birds.  I had a lovely hike
today because of it.

Get out there and vote, like responsible citizens.

David

Subject: Washington County Highlights - 4 Sapsucker sp.
From: "'Kendall Watkins' via UtahBirdsHotline" <utahbirdshotline AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:44:29 -0600
Between Friday (9/23) and today (9/27) my dad and I were able to find all four 
sapsucker species and several other goodies around Washington county. We spent 
all day yesterday at Lytle Ranch and after some good luck with migrants on the 
slope this morning we decided to try it again. The first bird I saw after 
getting out of the car was an adult Red-breasted Sapsucker of the northern 
race. It was seen with a hybrid Red-naped x Red-breasted Sapsucker and several 
Red-naped between the parking lot and the river just before the entrance gate. 


An adult Yellow-bellied Sapsucker was seen last night at Welcome Springs maybe 
a quarter of a mile up the wash. We tried again first thing this morning, but 
were unsuccessful in the wind. The Williamson's was seen at Oak Grove 
Campground. All of the sapsuckers were photographed. 


Other highlights included a Red-shouldered Hawk and Summer Tanagers at Lytle. 
Crissal Thrasher, Black-chinned Sparrow, Black-throated Gray Warbler and a 
possible Clay-colored Sparrow on the road to the ranch. Also at least four 
Rufous-crowned Sparrows and a couple of Summer Tanagers near Quail Creek 
Reservoir (north west riparian area). Two Fox Sparrows near Oak Grove were also 
fun to see.

Surprising night while back yard bird watching. I saw the Northern Flicker, 
American Kestrel, and Western Scrub Jay In Kearns Near 4700 S 4500 W.  Keep 
your eyes open. You never know what will show up.

Female Indigo Bunting at the spring at Garr Ranch, Antelope Island late this 
morning. It flew off when a large noisy group entered the area, and we were 
unable to relocate it. Otherwise very quiet at the ranch. The Ruff continues at 
the entrance pond at Farmington Bay WMA, giving wonderful views in the late 
afternoon sun (6:00 pm). Several Stilt Sandpipers were also present.

JoEllen Herbert and I are currently watching a turnstone at Utah lake state 
park. Same place as all the other good shorebirds lately.

Last known viewing position was from the sidewalk of Murray-Holladay Rd.
(Cory and I were inconveniently located on the wrong side of the pond, and
it was gone by the time we arrived.) Drat! Thanks for all the reports -
good luck tomorrow. :)
