Albertabirders;

On May 26/27 Wood Buffalo National Park organized a BioBlitz and kindly invited me to present and participate in the proceedings. Local birding authority Jason Straka lead bird walks and compiled our finding on ebird. We were based out of the Salt River Day use area and the birding was conducted within a 5 km area - remarklably all within the northernmost reaches of Alberta! More than 40 locals from Ft Smith participated in the event.

The birding highlights included Trumpeter Swan, Peregrine Falcon, Sandhill Crane, Mew Gull and American Avocet.

My thanks for everyone who organized and participated in the WBNP BioBlitz for Canada150.

During the Calgary May Species Count Nimilie Seneviratne and I found four Upland Sandpipers near the intersection of Township Rd 250 and Range Rd 281.  One bird was about 200 meters east of the corner and three were about  50 meters south.

What an amazing find! Such a spectacular looking bird.   

Hasn't it been awhile since a new bird was seen. Anyone know what the last new bird was?

Did you see another rare bird today too?

Again great find!!

Hey everyone,
I am currently working in the
Suffield National Wildlife Area just north of Medicine Hat
conducting bird surveys for Environment Canada.
Today I found an exciting bird on
site. A Sagebrush Sparrow, which ended up being a first for
the province! Photos are attached.
Unfortunately the bird is on a
military base so public access is not permitted.
Cheers,

Connor

Hey everyone,

I am currently working in the Suffield National Wildlife Area just north of Medicine Hat conducting bird surveys for Environment Canada.

Today I found an exciting bird on site. A Sagebrush Sparrow, which ended up being a first for the province! Photos are attached.

Unfortunately the bird is on a military base so public access is not permitted.

It doesn't seem to be quite right though. One suggestion I've had already is a female Gadwall, but that doesn't seem to fit. Another person said he thought it was a teal--he didn't say which one. A female Northern Shoveler doesn't seem right, because her bill should be larger--but then the angle of the photo could be confusing--in any case the markings aren't quite right.

John,

I think your duck looks like a teal, probably Blue-winged. It certainly is not a Gadwall, they have a large white patch on the hindwing.

Date: Thu May 25 2017 17:45 pm
From: Albertabird AT yahoogroups.com
 
Yesterday Team Thrasher braved howling winds to partake in the Great Canadian Birdathon. Team Bander from Slave Lake did theirs on Monday, the 22nd due to the ugly forecast for the 24th. We weren't in the position to do that because Wayne wasn't arriving in Lethbridge from Slave Lake until Tuesday afternoon. This year, a third person was added to each team. David Scott was our addition and he took Wednesday off work, so that added to our fixed date of the 24th. We were off from my place by 06:50. It was sunny (good), but the wind was already howling at least 60-70 kmph (bad). Our plan was to start the day with Turkey Vultures, which is always an ace bird to get. They weren't at their usual roost, so with the challenge of weather, we were not off to the best start.
Our next target was Bobolink at Mountain View, another excellent bird that Team Bander wasn't going to get. By the time we reached Mountain view we had 20 or so birds that can be identified at 100kmph. High winds defeated us again - no Bobolink! Wayne and I did get first-of-year Black Terns. We didn't spend any more time getting ducks - we wanted to be in Waterton Park at the Hay Barn before 08:00. Our plan was to get as many mountain-type birds as we could get by noon and then be duck/shorebird bound to the east.
At the park gate ponds we picked up Common Loons. Hay Barn road was good to us in spite of rain/snow showers, with the wind hacking away at us.
We found Black-headed Grosbeak, Calliope Hummingbird, Northern Waterthrush, some of the sparrows, Warbling Vireo, American Redstart and a few others.
From there we went up the Red Rock Canyon Road and found first-of-year Western Tanager, MacGillivray's Warbler and a few others. A trip into the Village gave us American Dipper, Red-naped Sapsucker, Steller's Jay and a few other birds. We checked out a few more places and then headed over to the park gate to pick up a Marsh Wren at the pullout by the gates. We couldn't find the wren, another ace bird missed, but we did find a Song Sparrow. At the Buffalo Paddocks, we just needed Mountain Bluebird and were beginning to worry if we would find one. Then I noticed a female flying a foot off the ground in front of us. It was too windy to fly high. I wondered how long she flew in front of me and wondered how close I came to running over her. We checked the viewpoint overlooking Maskinonge Lake and found a pair of Sandhill Cranes. Despite the terrible wind conditions, we did pretty good with 78 species as we left the Park and headed east.
At Mountain View we picked up the ducks we missed the first time-round, but still couldn't find a Bobolink to save our souls. We took a side-trip to Beazer and picked up a Belted Kingfisher and Bank Swallow. That completed the swallow category (except Purple Martin) for us. Our route took us back to Cardston and then to St. Mary Reservoir and the Prov. Recreation Area. We found some good birds there: Caspian Tern, Swainson's Thrush and a few others we hadn't seen yet.
Our plan was to go to Tyrrell Lake from there via the west end of Ridge Reservoir. We added a few more species to the count and we sitting at 97 or so by the time we arrived at Tyrrell Lake. Conditions had deteriorated even more with average wind at least a steady 70 kmph and gusts to 100! The tops of the white caps were blowing off in a spray and we couldn't even hold our binoculars steady, even when we were in the truck. If we were in a smaller vehicle, we may have joined the tumbleweeds. I saw quite a few in the lake. Tyrrell gave us a few more birds, mostly shorebirds, Long-billed Curlew, Black-bellied Plover, grebes and finished off the gulls for us with Franklin's and Bonaparte's. The only small shorebirds we found were Sanderlings. We were getting confident with 111 species.
Earlier in the day, I had decided we would skip Pakowki Lake this year and focus on other birds we didn't usually get. We headed north to Stirling Lake and hit steady rain with high winds. We did manage to find a pair of White-faced Ibis. Our strategy was we would pick up a few birds we missed at Jail Lake and Fairfield Gardens. Ha! Ha! The rain was coming down in sheets and we didn't find a darn thing. Well, for sure the Vultures would be back at their roost in this insane weather. They weren't, so we ended our day with 112 species. A possible win?
Not so. Team Bander had an amazing count of 125 species!!! Credit is due to them for their excellent performance. The birds turn out to be the winners in any case.
We logged 456 km and birded for just under 14 hours. Winds were steady at 70 kmph with gusts to 100 kmph. We started off the morning at + 18C and ended it with a cool +5C. In spite of the weather, we had a good day and it makes us wonder the possibilities if we would have had good weather.

Subject: 2017 Victoria Day Big Day, Calgary
Date: Thu May 25 2017 16:30 pm
From: Albertabird AT yahoogroups.com
 
Monday May 22 was the annual Nature Calgary Victoria Day Big Day field trip, an attempt to find over 100 species within the Calgary city limits. We started at 5:30 am with a two-hour walk at Votier's Flats in Fish Creek Park, and then did an almost four-hour walk in the Weaselhead (putting us well behind schedule) before going on to the (mostly) diving portion of the day.
We had fifteen participants at the start counting myself and the other leaders, Daniel Arndt and Rose Painter. The weather was very good with no rain and only light winds. It was cool first thing in the morning but became a very warm day.
We had no trouble getting to 100 species, but were unable to break any records, finishing with a respectable 116 species for the day.
At Votier's Flats we missed our target Spotted Towhee but got the Northern Rough-winged Swallows, and we had Gray Catbird almost immediately. Catbirds weren't back here yet last year. We had the first two of seven Great Horned Owls on the day, a bird that can be tough to find now the the young are out of the nests. The highlight was a nice look at a Le Conte's Sparrow by the stormwater ponds - a bird we don't usually get. Forty-three species to start the day.
At the Weaselhead we had 53 species, including 25 new ones to bring the total to 68. We got the Spotted Towhee and all three hummingbird species, but somehow missed the Eastern Phoebes despite checking both the south bridge and the north wooden bridge twice. A Cooper's Hawk was a nice find, meaning that we wouldn't have to chase it at the end of the day, and a White-winged Crossbill was another unexpected bird that we usually miss.
There were no Western Grebes to be seen on Glenmore Reservoir this year, but we did find a pair of White-winged Scoters on the east bay. Water levels were low, and since they are so high on the natural ponds in the area, we thought this would be our best bet for any lingering shorebirds, but we had no luck.
From this point on we were down to eleven participants for the rest of the day. We toured the far SW corner of the city and the Spruce Meadows ponds, adding 25 more species, including Barn Swallow, Mountain Bluebird on 69 St and 146 Ave, a single Bonaparte's Gull, and Marsh Wren, Sora, and Common Yellowthroat at Spruce Meadows. Our total was now 93 species.
A stop at Priddis (Sheriff King) Slough near Macleod Trail brought the total to an even 100 species with a pair of American Avocets at 4:30 pm. We also added Black-crowned Night-Heron, Pied-billed Grebe, and Ring-necked Duck there.
We were running very late so we skipped the 194 Ave SE pond in LaFarge Meadows and went to Sikome in Fish Creek Park, where we got Double-crested Cormorant and Baltimore Oriole. We failed to see a Bald Eagle and ended up missing them on the day. We also missed Warbling Vireo, which may or may not have been there yet.
Next were the ponds in the SE corner of the city, ending at Shepard. South of 22X, as I reported previously, was a pair of Upland Sandpiper. Shorebirds were predictably hard to come by, but we did get a few including one Marbled Godwit flying at Shepard Slough. We also a pair of Western Kingbirds south of Shepard.
After Shepard we were at 113 species, and it was getting late, so we decided to drive south on Deerfoot Trail to see the Pelicans that rest in the big pond by the Bow where the highway crosses the river. As we drove by Ralph Klein Park we noticed a vehicle going in, despite the fact that the park was supposed to be closed, so we took a chance and went in. We hoped for White-faced Ibis or Forster's Tern and got the tern as well as a single Hooded Merganser, but missed Ibis.
Finally we went and got our drive-by Pelicans, our 116th and final species of the day. We considered going to Lake Bonavista for the Common Loons there, but decided against it.
Besides the species mentioned that we missed, we also failed to find Pileated Woodpecker (once again!), Sharp-shinned Hawk, American Kestrel, Swainson's Thrush, Veery, Brown Thrasher (possibly not back at North Glenmore/Weaselhead yet), Cedar Waxwing, and Tennessee Warbler.
Thanks to everyone who participated for another great day, and special thanks to the drivers and to Rose, who entered all the eBird lists as we went.
Here is the day report from eBird. The numbers after each species name indicate the number of individual birds reported, and in parentheses, the number of checklists they were reported on out of the 15 submitted.

We visited a storm pond in the community of Saddleridge and were impressed by how many different birds we saw.  One of the neat events was witnessing a ruddy duck hitting it's chest with it's bill up close.  We also encountered a merganser but we're not positive on the ID -- we think it's a juvenile female common merganser.  I attached a picture. 2x Red-necked grebe 20x Yellow-headed blackbird 16x Red-winged blackbird 4x Common grackle 3x American crow 2x Swainson's thrush 1x Yellow-rumped warbler 3x European starling 40+ House sparrow 3x Brown-headed cowbird 6x Redhead 4x Mallard 4x Ruddy duck 3x Common merganser 10x Canada goose + goslings 4x Lesser scaup 4x Northern shoveler

Subject: Upland Sandpipers in Calgary
Date: Tue May 23 2017 14:09 pm
From: Albertabird AT yahoogroups.com
 
Yesterday was Nature Calgary's annual Victoria Day Big Day, an attempt to find over 100 species of birds within the city limits. I will post a summary later (spoiler: we had over 100), but wanted to let birders know about the highlight of the day, a pair of Upland Sandpipers seen in the far SE. The location was on 120 St SE, about a half kilometer to one kilometer south of Highway 22X. This is on the city limits boundary (the birds moved back and forth across the road as we watched). For some of us (including myself) this was a life bird, and none of the eleven remaining birders present had ever seen this species within the city limits before.
Another species that many had never seen in the city was Western Kingbird, a pair on 146 Avenue SE between RR 284 and RR 284A.

Bob Lefebvre, Calgary

Subject: Birding Crowsnest Pass & area - May 22nd
Date: Tue May 23 2017 10:23 am
From: Albertabird AT yahoogroups.com
 
Yesterday, David Scott and I headed west to the Crowsnest Pass to see if we
could find a few target birds. We were going to be more focussed on them
rather than numbers of species. Some of our target birds were Calliope
Hummingbird, Dusky Flycatcher, Cassin's Vireo, Rock Wren, Upland Sandpiper
and Harlequin Duck. We arrived in CNP at 08:00 and met Pat Lucas. It was
long before we found our Calliope Hummingbird and Dusky Flycatcher. Along
the East Hillcrest Access Road we found Cassin's Vireo (lifer for me). We
moved on to Frank Slide to look for Rock Wrens. No luck south of Hwy 3, but
we did find Northern Waterthrush, Common Yellowthroat, Gray Catbird, Song
Sparrow and Spotted Sandpiper. Next we drove up to the Interpretive Centre
and walked the trail loop through the slide area. Other than another Dusky
Flycatcher, it was pretty quiet.



By now long weekend traffic was starting to pick up; Rock Wrenless we headed
over to the Maycroft Road. We headed west to the Gap to look for Harlequin
Ducks on the Oldman River. Oncoming traffic was very heavy and dust was
flying as the weekend campers were heading home. One had to be very careful
about stopping, as they were all in a hurry, birders in the way or not. We
found a local Harlequin hot spot and walked upstream. The river was a bit
high and silty with the hot weather and melting snow higher up. We didn't
find any, but as we returned to our vehicle, David spotted a pair of them
working their way upstream on the far side of a gravel bar. The pair worked
their way towards us, diving and feeding presenting us with some good photo
ops. Then they crossed over to our side of the gravel bar, giving us even
better looks at them. Satisfied with our find, we returned to the vehicle
and headed east to a spot to have lunch. Two more male Harlequins were
seen. We watched them shoot the rapids. It looked like a lot of fun.



After lunch, we headed east towards the Waldron Road, hoping to find an
Upland Sandpiper. Before we reached Hwy. 22, we found a Western Wood-Pewee
(new for the year for all of us, but not a target bird). The bridge
crossing the Oldman River is under repair with one-way traffic. That was a
bit of a gong show with all the weekend travellers, but a courteous driver
let us in the line-up. The Waldron Road gave us a few new day-birds, but we
failed on the Upland Sandpiper. Pat headed west at a fork in the road and
we headed SE towards the Oldman River Dam. David and I decided we had a bit
of time, so we made a quick trip to Beauvais Lake Prov. Park to look for
Ovenbirds, Cape May Warblers and Black-headed Grosbeaks. Other than an
Osprey, Oregon Junco, Tennessee Warbler and White-throated Sparrows (good
for the day-list), it wasn't time well-spent. It was time to get mixed up
with the masses in east-bound traffic for the trip back to Lethbridge. Our
loose day-count was around 60 species, but we did get 5 of our target birds,
all new for the year.



As an aside note, Wayne Bowles from Slave Lake and I are conducting our
annual Great Canadian Birdathon tomorrow. We challenge the bird banders
from the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory in a friendly, fund-raising
competition of north vs. south. Believe it or not, every year we either tie
for numbers or one of us win by one or two birds. Actually the birds turn
out to be the winners. Funds raised go to Bird Studies Canada, with a good
portion going to the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation in Slave Lake.

Barb, main way to tell the pellets apart would be by size. Long-eared would be quite a bit smaller than Great Horned. But there's definitely some guess work involved!

Ron/Phil,
Ironically, I saw two birds I could not identify high in the poplars by the Pumphouse Theatre in south-west Calgary Sunday afternoon (14th May) at 4pm. Seeing Ron and Phil's discussion has convinced me that at least one of them was a pale adult female Western Tanager. Thanks for posting!

It's a Willet, but probably western subspecies. An eastern Willet would
have a chunkier bill, more markings on the back, more barring ...
they're hard to distinguish, but easterns breed in the marshes of the
east coast so we're very unlikely to see one here.

David Scott and I decided to see what we could do for the Global Big Day count. He picked me up at 06:30 and the count was on. We had plans to meet Pat Lucas in Waterton Lakes Nat. Park at 08:00, so didn™t have time to dilly dally. Pretty well any birds seen along the way would have to be identified at highway speeds with the concession that if it was something good, a quick ID stop would be in order. We lucked out as we left Lethbridge and saw 4 Turkey Vultures cruising the coulees along Scenic Drive South. We considered that a good omen for our day. By the time we reached Mountain View we had 26 species, most of them the usual suspects one can ID at highway speeds: Swainson™s Hawks, Northern Harriers, RW & YH Blackbirds, Meadowlarks, Doves, Magpies, Crows and Ravens. We did stop to check out a flock of gulls, but could only squeeze Franklin™s and Ring-billed out of it.At Mountain View we make a very quick detour to see if we could luck out with Bobolink. Along Rge. Rd. 28-0, we stopped the vehicle in a location that they are often seen. David got of the car and said he was going to listen for them. No sooner had he stepped out and two males landed on a fence 4 posts away. Bingo! New year-birds and no time wasted. We picked up a few more waterfowl here on a quick scan and headed to Waterton. I know of a pond that has Trumpeter Swans on it quite often. It is tough to see from the highway, but if you stop at the right place, it can be seen quite clearly. Five Trumpeter Swans were there. Osprey were observed at Hwy. 5 and the Belly River and at Angel™s Store at the Park boundary. We also had a Sandhill Crane fly overhead near Angel™s Store. At the bridge crossing the Waterton River, we saw our first-of-year Cliff Swallows, 100+.We met Pat Lucas at the Red Rock Canyon Road. We piled into her vehicle and headed for the Hay Barn. First-of-year birds Clay-colored Sparrow, Yellow Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Warbling Vireo, Least Flycatcher were found. Ruffed Grouse drummed and Mountain Bluebirds, Vesper and Savannah Sparrows were also found. At the access road to the Prince of Wales Hotel we found first-of-year Townsend™s Warblers. There were also Cassin™s Finches, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Pine Siskins, Yellow-rumped (Audubon™s) Warblers and Mountain Chickadees along that stretch.We made a quick trip up to Little Prairie Day Use. A stop at one location gave us Chipping Sparrow and Golden-crowned Kinglets. At Little Prairie Varied Thrush were heard and a Fox Sparrow was found. A few White-winged Crossbills were present.In the Townsite, we found American Dippers. Cameron Falls was running heavy and it would be a National Geographic photo to catch the Dippers flying into the falls to get to their nest. It was awesome to watch. Red-naped Sapsuckers (male & female) and Steller™s Jays were added to the tally. More Warbling Vireos and Townsend™s Warblers were found. We heard a Pileated Woodpecker and saw a Wilson™s Warbler. Lincoln™s Sparrow was added in that area.At Lake Linnet a female Barrow™s Goldeneye, Common Mergansers, NRW Swallow and Violet-green Swallows were added to our day-count. As we left the park, we picked up a Marsh Wren at the gates.On our way east, we spent a bit of time in the Mountain View area to pick up a few more species, since our Bobolink stop was so quick and focussed. We were able to add a 7 more waterfowl and Brewer™s Blackbird to our count. Bank Swallows can often be found along Hwy 501 at Beazer, so we went there on our way to Cardston. We did not find them, nor any new species between there and Cardston. In Cardston we lucked out with an American Kestrel, our only falcon of the day. We stopped at a pothole along Hwy 5 east of Cardston and added Wilson™s Phalarope, Marbled Godwit and American Avocet.Magrath has a good Nature Park and Campground along Pothole Creek. We walked the trail, adding Common Yellowthroat, House Finch, House Wren, Common Grackle, Barn Swallow and California Gull to the tally. Our next stop was Tyrrell Lake, where we observed 56 species, some of which we had already seen in other places. New birds for the year were Sanderling and Red-necked Phalaropes for me and David, as well as Least SP and Semipalmated Plover that were new for David. On our way home, we made a quick stop at Stirling Lake, topping off our day with White-faced Ibis and Ross™s Goose. It was my best birding day ever, with 118 species found for the Global Big Day by us. That was good practice for my upcoming Great Canadian Birdathon with Wayne Bowles on May 24th.Ken OrichLethbridgeKen Orich and Wayne Bowles Personal Page Link:
