Thanks Brandon for the heads up on the Red Crossbill.
Mark & I saw it at your feeder at 3 pm with only a 117 heat index. Luckily
we only waited about 5 minutes before it showed up. It was on the green
feeder then the red feeder then the bird bath.

Yes, it's a Broad-winged Hawk. I'm no expert on eBird but if it wasn't 
flagged there likely won't be a "confirmation" of your sighting. If it was
flagged, it shouldn't have been.

Broad-winged Hawks should be expected in appropriate habitat in eastern
Kansas especially along the Kansas River corridor. We have confirmed
nesting as far west as Riley County. I have strong evidence that they are
likely nesting around Junction City, including an adult in June carrying
food into an area that likely held a nest, I just can't find the darn
nest!

eBird isn't monitored at all times by the people who do it. Most of the people approve are locals who have been picked by eBird.
Incidentally, I am not one of them!!! However, your id looks good to me.

I have posted what I think is a dark Broad-winged Hawk taken here in Riley County on June 22, but my field guides don't have good pictures.  I am puzzled by the breast stripes.  Feel free to confirm or contest my ID suggestion.

When we first moved to the area, bought our land and with it, a small, half
acre pond. We soon asked the local fish and game person about how best to
stock it. Neither of us are fishermen so we simply wanted a natural pond
that would require no particular effort to maintain. He suggested Asian
Carp. We bought several, fewer than he suggested. Eventually, with
greater understanding of ponds, we got rid of the Carp. Involved a large
boat in our little pond and an interesting experience. At some point, when
two quite large dead Carp were left along side the pond, we had within an
hour, Turkey Vultures. Interesting to watch the clear hierarchy of these
useful birds. By the next day all that was left were bones. I'm pretty
sure we ate one we pulled out too.

It was a learning experience. At some point we had a pond full of what
looked like long sea weed growing mostly around the edge. Wild celery?

Shame on that County fish person who suggested the initial stocking. Shame
on their training. This was over 15 years ago; hope they don't offer the
same advice now

Subject: Quivira report 16 July 2019
Date: Tue Jul 16 2019 14:23 pm
From: barjones78 AT gmail.com
 
Quivira's Wildlife Drive is now open to all traffic.  Visitors will be treated not only to the large numbers of herons and egrets around the Wildlife Drive and NE 170th Street flats, but also a large quantity of shorebirds (see below).  Most fascinating, though, is a colony of over 50 nesting Eared Grebes west of the Wildlife Drive in Big Salt Marsh, easily visible to the west about 1/2 mile north of the "scope corner" (in other words, the northwest corner of Big Salt Marsh).  The birds chose the area where a large amount of pondweed is readily available, a built simple, low mounds of pondweed on which to lay eggs.  At least 3 broods of Pied-billed Grebes and two broods of American Coots were also seen in total along the Drive.

Refuge-wide Shorebird Survey:
Snowy Plover - 281
Killdeer - 100
Black-necked Stilt - 101 (over 6 broods - young not in total)
American Avocet - 169
Greater Yellowlegs - 53
Lesser Yellowlegs - 238
yellowlegs, sp. - 6
Spotted Sandpiper - 1
Semipalmated Sandpiper - 20
Western Sandpiper - 20
Least Sandpiper - 31
Stilt Sandpiper - 332
dowitcher, sp. - 10
Wilson's Phalarope - 40
peep, sp. - 2,754
shorebird, sp. - 1
Total = 4,157
Species = 13

That's a fairly high total for mid-July. A large percentage of the total was along NE 170th street, both sides. Also of note is the lingering presence of Green-winged Teal at the Refuge, and (considering the frequent mention of the species recently on Listserv) a brood of 5 young Redheads in Unit 14B.

Over the past 10 years, I watched the 13,000 acre Freezeout Lake go from an incredible resource for birds to a near disaster. There are only very small numbers of post breeding birds now. Formerly, every year, there were hundreds of thousands of redheads, canvasback, and many other diving ducks congregating on this lake.

Who ever put those fish in there turned this huge shallow lake with incredibly clear water and tons of underwater vegetation into a mud hole.

Jeff,



Very interesting observation on Redheads.



Many of the northern Great Plains areas where Redheads formerly spent time staging and molting have been adversely affected by changes to habitat. As we all know, our friends who think they know better than any damned game warden or in this day- effete Biologist just go right ahead and do what they want to do.



So in this case and in many other locations, these eco-criminals have released ASIAN CARP - but notably about 8 years ago in Freezeout Lake, MT. Formerly, up to 500,000 Redheads and other species which used to undergo molt, rest and recharge after the nesting season- have stopped using the lake as the carp have destroyed the habitat with the lush underwater wild growth of what I will call wild celery. That is not the correct name,or species of plant, but it is the equivalent description of what is now gone.



Where ever Redheads can still be found breeding, they have to also find some locations for staging and molting . The timing is correct so I suspect this is a part of a rather massive effort for this species to find suitable locations

Hi Michael,

I don™t know the species of fish precisely either. I was told Asian Carp.

Over the past 10 years, I watched the 13,000 acre Freezeout Lake go from an incredible resource for birds to a near disaster. There are only very small numbers of post breeding birds now. Formerly, every year, there were hundreds of thousands of redheads, canvasback, and many other diving ducks congregating on this lake.

Who ever put those fish in there turned this huge shallow lake with incredibly clear water and tons of underwater vegetation into a mud hole.

Saturday (7/13/19) I spotted my first Lesser Yellowlegs in months at the K-State beef farm.  Later I spotted my first gull in some time, presumably a Ring-billed Gull, although my view was brief and distant.  Somewhat later I was treated to at least four Caspian Terns in Tuttle Creek Cove.  Hopefully more species to come.

Date: Sun Jul 14 2019 17:04 pm
From: friesen.fenton AT gmail.com
 
I camped at Coldwater Lake last night on a birding/wildflower trip.
Saturday on the way down the Road M Prairie Dog town in KW County held
little as did Mephistophele's Quarter Acre (I did not sell my birding soul
to the devil there just in case Faust wants to discuss such in any upcoming
books). That is a unique outcropping of rocks, good birds or not.

Coldwater Lake was interesting in term of what I saw and didn't see. All
meadowlarks around the lake were singing Eastern songs which caught me off
guard. Great Crested Flycatchers were feeding young and House Wrens, a
little harder to find in recent years in HV County, were thick. Great
Horned and Barred Owls called at night.

The road L wetland (CM County) did have one mostly quiet Black Rail.
Wade-a-while Park near Wilmore was its usual unmowed quiet self though I
got there late AM to hear much. The drive east of Wade-a-while park is a
very scenic trip taking you to just south of Sun City. Regular grassland
birds inhabit the drive.

A pizza at Dave's Pizza Oven in Coldwater was very good helping Dave live
up to the place on the top ten pizza places in the state. The taco pizza
is supposed to be good though I opted for another option. I tried for a
pizza taco at Chapeau's in Pratt on the way home but they were closed.

Subject: Wanderings this week JF, MG, SU, RC, BT
Date: Fri Jul 12 2019 23:41 pm
From: armknecht AT ruraltel.net
 
I made a quick two-day birding trip to try for some year birds before it
gets too late. Two targets were Whippoorwill and Black Vulture.

A late Wednesday start put me in Topeka in late afternoon to go with Dan
Larsen to the Topeka Audubon Sanctuary in Jefferson County to try for the
Whips. We got there early and there was a surprising amount of bird
activity. We arrived about 8:00 and had 27 species - all but the target Whip
from the parking lot. When the Chucks had been calling for several minutes
with just a barely imagined Whip in the distance, we drove up the road a few
hundred yards and heard several Whips.

I left Topeka Thursday morning headed for SE KS to try for Black Vultures.
The go-to county is usually Cherokee. Andrew Burnett told me where I could
try at the Elk City Reservoir dam in Montgomery County so I decided to try
there first to see if I could save a few miles and some time. I found one
soaring with a kettle of TV's just east of the dam - right where Andrew told
me to watch.

My next objective was a try for a long-shot Cave Swallow at Slate Creek
Wetlands in Sumner County, so I birded my way west from Independence the
rest of Thursday. One goal was to find Orchard Oriole in some of the few
counties where I did not have them. I found them in three of the four
remaining counties and still need it only in Labette County.

Jeff Calhoun and I met Max Thompson and Gene Young at Slate Creek this
morning. Max and Gene are both great birders and know more about Slate Creek
than all the rest of KS combined. It was a beautiful morning. Birds were
pretty active considering the time of year. High water earlier this year has
changed some water, vegetation, and bird patterns at Slate Creek, but there
should be great habitat for fall shorebirds as well as post-breeding wading
bird dispersal. We did not manage to find a Cave Swallow, but it was a great
morning of birding.

On the way home from Wichita, I checked out an area of western Rice County
where Jeff Calhoun had discovered some rather large ephemeral lakes produced
by massive rainfall in that area earlier this summer. There is a LOT of
water. Several roads are still closed because they are under water. I
estimated some of the lakes to cover more than 100 acres. This area should
be fantastic for fall shorebirds and waterfowl as well as post-breeding
wading birds.

I found newly hatched Mallards, Blue-winged Teal, American Coot, and Avocet.
The teal, coot, and Avocet are first documented Rice County breeding. This
area produced 44 species today including a flock of 46 Pintails.

Common Gallinule had been seen at Cheyenne Bottoms recently, so I decided to
try for that bird today as well. I heard but did not see one in dense
cattails across the road from the previous sightings. What I did see was
fledgling Western Grebes, Eared Grebes, and more baby Coots. I looked at a
lot of Ibis but was unable to find a Glossy.

Considering the time of year, it was a very enjoyable and successful trip
with a little over 100 species. I should bird more in July, I guess.

Thanks to Dan, Jeff, Max, and Gene for their help.

Hi All.  I had NINE Black-bellied Whistling Ducks SE of Larned, Pawnee
County, on 11 July at the intersection of 90th Ave and K Road. I've been
looking for young ones without success. These all appeared to be adults.



Prior to this sighting, Steven and I saw ONE BBWD south of Ward Feed Yard on
5 July plus I had seen THREE around Larned on 28 June.



I have been making my usual rounds around the countryside, but haven't
really seen much of note lately. 2019 was the year I was going to get my
two Breeding-Bird Survey routes, Gray (Hodgeman) and Ash Valley (Pawnee),
done early, however extreme flooding along both routes caused delays to 1
and 2 July. Both routes had very few surprises. Ash Valley is one of the
newer routes and was originally supposed to end at the Pawnee/Edwards county
line, but the mileage was off, so #50 became kind of a throwaway stop right
at the end. This year there was a Greater Roadrunner sitting on a post at
#50 on the Pawnee side of the road. I needed a GRRO for my Edwards list, so
this one ran north, of course. Typical.



I was down in Kingman and Harper counties again on 8 and 9 July. Bird
activity was quite diminished compared to late June and I really saw nothing
unusual whatsoever.



One bird I haven't encountered much in 2019 is Eastern Screech Owl, so it
was nice to finally hear one at our yard on 8 July.

The dickcissels seem to have a banner year for babies.  I had to go birding while it was cool.

The rest is not bird stuff. Sorry

It was a great morning until I drove by a man in a Jefferson co. truck. He let at least 5 beagles out to run.

Later I watched a doe running frantically from one direction then the other way. The dogs were going crazy barking/howling. I felt she was being chased by the dogs.˜

I called 3 park/wildlife office before I got to the correct one. Apparent it is ok to let dogs hunt as it is rabbit season.

I had heard the dogs in that location one other time.

I do not have a m/f breakdown, and it™s difficult to ascertain from the
photos I took. Looks like a large majority males in the largest flock and
closer to 50/50 in one of the smaller flocks photographed, but tough to
tell with my photos. There™s plenty of playa birding season left and I™m
sure they will be a major part of it, so I™ll give it a whirl when I am
back in that zone counting Redheads!

I drove to McPherson yesterday, 7/8, as part of the Birders Direct Route
towards Derby.

On the way I stopped at the county line playa on the Rice-Barton County
line, north of Highway 56. I estimated 160 REDHEAD loafing around and
thought this was exceptional. Are there any Redheads actually nesting this
year?? Sooo many in Kansas this summer just loafing as near as I can tell.
This location will be a great and easy spot to add Rice County birds this
summer-fall if youre into that sort of thing.

I continued to and walked around McPherson Valley Wetlands, mostly Moccasin
Rd and the dikes along there. The most unusual find here was a southerly
and singing SONG SPARROW. I also heard a singing SEDGE WREN and saw an
AMERICAN BITTERN, and YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD. It was getting breezy but
this location looks phenomenal as well.

I stayed in McPherson overnight so I could bird McPherson SFL this morning,
7/9. The best and most baffling observation was a KENTUCKY WARBLER on the
sw side of the lake. Really struck me as odd!! I also had a NORTHERN PARULA
and PAINTED BUNTING, and several other new county ticks.

After finishing the drive and taking a nice nap, I went on a walk around my
parents property west of Derby (Sedgwick Co.) this evening. I had a
BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER among a few other regular summer residents
including SUMMER TANAGER and FISH CROW. I note that I had BAWW in the
summer in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016. I recall it always being a singing
male, just like tonight.

Really great to be here for a few days watching GREAT and SNOWY EGRETS and
LITTLE BLUE HERONS commute back towards Wichita on the summer evening!!!
Its sights like that that made my nature interest into the birding
curiosity and obsession it is today!

I have a pair of catbirds nesting somewhere in my neighborhood.  Some funnies, they have a song similar to an Oriole whistle, so I put out jelly thinking I have orioles. They could care less about that, i was kind of tufted when I figured it out. Also, when I lay down for bed, one will hang in the bush outside my window and meow for a bit.  I get up to let my actual cat indoors, but there is never any cat.  The bird then flies away singing, I think it's laughing.

This is a tardy field trip report for the Burrough's Audubon of Kansas City
extended field trip to northern Minnesota between June 15th and June 18th.
This report, with photos and hyperlinks to ebird checklists can be read on
the following link.

http://burroughs.org/its-free/...

We are in the process of scheduling fall, winter, and spring field trips
for the next year and look for trips to be added to the website in the
coming weeks. The field trips are open to all and everyone is invited! If
you are interested in leading a trip please contact me or Mike Stoakes. I
hope everyone nature as much as possible and I look forward to getting out
with you soon.

Sincerely,

Malcolm Gold (Overland Park Kansas) & Mike Stoakes (Burroughs Field Trip
Coordinators)

______________________ Trip Report ______________________

After traveling most of Saturday the group had a short walk at Hawk Ridge
to see the terrain and get a look at Lake Superior. Not many birds were
seen in the late afternoon heat and the trail required hiking boots and let
us know we weren™t on flat land anymore. We spent Sunday with Clinton
Nienhaus, the head naturalist at Sax-Zim Bog, and explored the many
different habitats available in this birding hotspot. A trip in June
allowed us to focus on nesting birds that we don™t see in Kansas and
Missouri or only see in migration.

The many highlights from this overcast day include Sharp-tailed Grouse,
Black-backed Woodpeckers, LeConte™s Sparrows, Yellow-bellied Flycatchers,
Canada Jay, Bobolinks, Blue-headed Vireos, Common Raven, Veery, and many
Warblers! Connecticut Warblers were heard only and were one of only a few
species that didn™t offer looks in the open to everyone. https://saxzim.org/
Clinton is an amazing trip leader, naturalist, and educator that comes
highly recommended as a guide for any group visiting the area. Reach out to
him and see if he is available for your visit! A group of us stayed quite
close to the Bog and visited the area at dusk and had fleeting looks at a
Great Gray Owl and supper visits from a male Evening Grosbeak at an Airbnb.

Monday included many couple hour drives to find specialty species spread
out across northern Minnesota. We started the day early with a hike at
Oberg Mountain and found many singing Black-throated Blue Warblers among
others.

After lunch, we drove to Cook Minnesota where Spruce Grouse and
Black-backed Woodpeckers highlighted a short section of a dirt road where
the many species were only seen or heard by a couple of people in the
group. Yellow Rails started to call at McGregor Marsh around dusk. Along
the way, we donated blood to the robust MN mosquito population. Overall we
ended with 108 species including 3 Grouse species (Sharp-tailed, Ruffed,
and Spruce) and 20 species of Warblers.

Subject: Oak Park, Wichita
Date: Mon Jul 8 2019 0:24 am
From: pgriffin1 AT cox.net
 
Hi Folks,

This year the Oak Park nesting Copper™s Hawks, have produced 4 just fledged immatures. As least one was a male, as it was much smaller than the others. They have quickly disappeared into the very dense Oak Park. Oak Park has had a record rainfall in resent months. Which has caused thick foliage. That has also caused it difficult to find the many hummingbird nests that are in the park this year. That is obvious because, of all the Ruby-throated hummingbirds in Oak Park this year. I suspect about 10 nests around my feeders, in the park. Right now I think the adult females are on the nests in the area. So, far I haven™t seen any immatures that have fledged, but it shouldn™t be long until that happens. But, this is the same thing I saw last year, and that is, there are many other hummingbird species in Oak Park ever since mid May as the Ruby-throated have arrived. I have been videoing them, getting close ups, to make sure what they are and they are still hanging around. For your information, the additional hummingbird species are: many, Broad-tailed, a few, Calliope™s and a few, Black-chinned. This is the same situation I saw last year. The only thing I can think of, is the special hummingbirds seem to be following the Ruby-throated as they head North in the spring. All of the special hummingbirds appear to be immatures right now, having been hatched earlier this year farther South. I don™t know why they would be here in Wichita, other than they had nothing else to do, because they don™t nest in Wichita.

Happy Birding,

Paul Griffin, Wichita

We are proud parents again for 2nd year now.  In Wyandotte 159 yds from leavenworth Co.  Our babies are beautiful and we think they may go to OSU.  Kind of a family thing.  Mom sat on them for 15 days.  Hole started in one egg 2nd still developing.  Wonder if they have runts, or lesser survivor.  Dad should have at light orange cap but have not seen that yet.  Mom appears to leave about supper time for food I guess, she has grown accustomed to me, because I can talk to her without frightening her.  She does not like our grandchildren, she flies away everytime they come out,  Our Rosemary bush where they have taken up residence is fine, and maybe they like the scent?  Any ideas would be appreciated!

A young of year rubythroated Hummingbird showed up at our yard feeder in
Geary county yesterday. I got to examine it today, mostly grey back with
green feathers just starting to show. All white throat, but may have been
too young still for any throat colors even if it were a male. Yesterday it
was with adults, but today it was alone. Hopefully, a second clutch is
planned.

Subject: Update: Kingbirds have babies
Date: Sun Jul 7 2019 10:41 am
From: kinman AT hotmail.com
 
Hi All,
Not much bird-wise happening outside my window except for the pair of western kingbirds. After 20 days of incubation, the kingbird eggs started hatching on July 3rd. As near as I can tell there are 3 baby kingbirds in the nest, and the parents are busy keeping them fed. Hopefully the cigarette butts in the nesting material are keeping the pests at bay. Anyway, watching them has me feeling poetic, so I wrote a little poem about them:

One western kingbird nest

The kingbirds they nested between two poles,
But male and female had quite different roles;
To build their new home, she toiled for a week,
A small master builder (at least so to speak).

Her mate was less busy, but always on guard,
Intruders repelled with a vigorous charge;
This space is for us, our eggs and our nest,
Beware interlopers, you're unwelcome guests.

Once the eggs were laid, they were treated with care,
Rolled over, incubated, as if they were rare;
Quite an investment for these parents-to-be,
Be it instinct or love, it was something to see.

Then twenty days later, the hatching commenced,
With parental duties becoming intense;
Those small hungry mouths demanding more food,
No rest for the weary of this most precious brood.

-------------Ken Kinman (Hays)

Subject: Pratt and Barber County birds
Date: Sat Jul 6 2019 18:54 pm
From: jeffcalhoun11 AT gmail.com
 
Henry Armknecht and I met in Pratt early this morning, July 6, to go
birding in Pratt and Barber Counties.

We started at the KDWPT office but failed to find the White-eyed Vireo and
struggled with soggy roads in the south part of Pratt County, but did have
a nice group of WHITE-WINGED DOVES in Pratt as a consolation for these
early efforts.

The better birding started in northeast Barber County along Ridge Road,
enjoying many summer residents of the area including a few each INDIGO and
PAINTED BUNTINGS and BLUE GROSBEAKS, several FIELD SPARROWS, a family group
of NORTHERN BOBWHITES, and more. In Medicine Lodge we had a RUBY-THROATED
HUMMINGBIRD. In the southern tier of KS counties, I think Barber, Pratt,
and eastern Comanche are the west edge of this Hummingbird™s summer range
although their not abundant anywhere. South of Medicine Lodge we ran into
the first really unexpected sighting when a SEDGE WREN was heard then seen
singing over a wetland area near the Medicine Lodge River. In the same
vicinity we had a RED-SHOULDERED HAWK and a singing EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE. We
headed west to chase recent sightings in the Red Hills along Forest City Rd
north of Hwy 160, and at a pond 1.6 miles north of the highway we had the
best bird of the day. Here we heard then saw a LADDER-BACKED WOODPECKER.
This will be a first Barber Co record if accepted by KBRC. Closer to the
highway we had a singing RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW previously reported by
others and enjoyed other Red Hills denizens with the PAINTED BUNTINGS and
BEWICK™S WRENS.

On the way back to Pratt, we looped through the eastern part of Pratt
County. Along the S Fork of the Ninnescah River on 10th St we heard a
singing GREATER ROADRUNNER. Along the same river on 100th Ave we had an
immature BALD EAGLE. These wetlands are neat and definitely deserve more of
my future attention.

Throughout the countryside today we had a half dozen or so flocks of
post-breeding CLIFF SWALLOWS. The largest flock was easily in the low
thousands in Pratt County and included many juveniles on the road, power
lines, and skies.

In eastern Ford County, the RING-BILLED GULL continues at the Hwy 400
playa north of Bucklin. It™s been present for 2.5 weeks at least.

It was a great day!

Subject: Quivira report for 1 July 2019
Date: Tue Jul 2 2019 8:24 am
From: barjones78 AT gmail.com
 
We checked roads/birds at Quivira yesterday, 1 July.  Conditions have improved in some areas.  The passage along the north side of Little Salt Marsh (spillways) has reopened, with very little water on the spillways.  Standing/running water along NE 140th Avenue and NE 170th street has dried.  The Wildlife Drive, however, will remained closed to all entry until the Plover are through nesting, which may be for a few more weeks.  Also, Salt Marsh Road, north of the 140th blacktop is still impassable, as is NE 80th street along the south boundary (especially to the east of the south entrance - it may take months for it to dry).  

As Curtis reported for CB last week, we saw a good variety of non-breeding/returning shorebirds along NE 170th:
Lesser Yellowlegs
Least Sandpiper
Stilt Sandpiper
Western Sandpiper
Plus, the number of pelicans, herons, and egrets is spectacular.

Subject: [cobirds] Baca county --- YELLOW-GREEN VIREO (6/25/2019)

COBirders,

First, I truly apologize for not getting this out sooner! I basically made a mistake in the field and didn't catch it until late last night.

Last Tuesday afternoon/evening I was at Two Buttes where birding was secondary to what I was doing. While busy doing my thing I heard a vireo occasionally singing that I thought was a Red-eyed Vireo BUT it sounded a bit off. It was across a pond from me so I continued doing my thing until it finally came over to the side I was. I decided I would go check it out just in case. The bird was not giving me great views at first, it was mostly hidden by leaves and almost always facing me directly. However, from what I could see I thought it MIGHT be a YELLOW-GREEN VIREO (YGVI). I worked at getting some photos and a recording, just in case. Then it wandered back to the north. Not having any experience with YGVI, I looked at an app to see how to tell it apart from Red-eyed. I thought in the field that the face was too contrasting and decided it was a Red-eyed Vireo and went on about my business.

Last night right before calling it a night, I was pulling photos off of the camera and came across the vireo and immediately got a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I sent a few photos off last night and this morning to see what a few others thought and the consensus is that it is a YELLOW-GREEN VIREO.

I had to work in SE CO today so after work I spent some time looking for the bird but was unable to find it. I did find a singing RED-EYED VIREO at the far east end. The bird may still be there and was just silent today while I was there. It was at the west end right near the "swimming hole" aka "the black hole" the entire time I was there last Tuesday.

Again, I apologize for my mistake. Hopefully it is still around and can be refound!

Fellow birders:

Around the first of June I took a photo of a Loggerhead Shrike on Marlatt Avenue west of Seth Child Road. I used to see them every summer and know that they nested in the area. Now I am lucky to see one maybe very other year in Riley County. If you are interested I posted a photo on my web site. It is about 20 photos down on the site and I am still behind on posting.

Also posted is a photo of a Neotropical Cormorant at the River Pond, the first one that I had seen in the county.

May your next bird be a lifer!

Subject: my Western Kingbirds (update)--communicating with eggs??
Date: Sun Jun 30 2019 13:59 pm
From: kinman AT hotmail.com
 
Hi All,
It's been 17 days since my Western Kingbird female began incubating, so I expect hatching to begin any day now. This weekend the female seems to be looking at the eggs very carefully more and more often, and now I've even seen the male doing the same thing (more and more). Yesterday was actually the first time that I've seen the male perching on the next itself. It's almost like they are rehearsing for feeding behavior, but with no insects in their beaks.
Could the parents be communicating with the eggs? Perhaps listening to chirps from within the eggs, and/or perhaps communicating back to what they hear from the eggs? I felt sorry for the female in yesterday's heat (and more again today). But thankfully the humidity isn't too bad. She was clearly panting and working extra hard propping herself up and trying to use her wings to shade the eggs from the sun (and the wind under her wings probably felt good too). Certainly was a lot more activity than usual. Hope she is at least getting rested during the nights.
About 5 days ago, the other pair of kingbirds joined them (along with other bird species) in chasing off a fox squirrel. I had been wondering why I haven't seen that squirrel this year (it just isn't welcome with the kingbird nest being above where I have seen the squirrel in past years). Ever since then the male kingbird has been perching a lot closer to the next.

Subject: my Western Kingbird and cigarette butt nesting material

Hi All,
Update from last week. Today my mother Western Kingbird appears to be incubating an egg. But yesterday she was still putting the finishing touches on the nest (on that metal bracket connected to the utility pole). I even saw her bringing back a shredded cigarette butt from a recently mowed yard. At first I thought she was using it because the fibers would be soft and cushiony.
I didn't realize that birds often use cigarette butts in their nests to repel pests like ticks and mites. Scientists have shown that birds select butts from smoked cigarettes over those that haven't been smoked. Just enough nicotine in those butts to help repel pests, but usually not enough to be harmful to the baby birds. City birds certainly are adaptable in using what humans discard or build (weblinks to two articles below).

Subject: early news about the KOS fall meeting in October
Date: Sun Jun 30 2019 11:09 am
From: pete.janzen AT sbcglobal.net
 
Just a long-range heads up that at the KOS fall meeting this year in
Wichita, we will be trying out something new. On the Friday (Oct. 4)
prior to the meeting, we will offer county listing trips to local
counties, generally within a 60 mile radius of Wichita. On the
registration form we will have a place where you can list the county or
counties of the most interest to you. I don't have a firm sense of how
popular this experiment will be, just thought we'd give it a try.
The dates of the meeting are Oct. 4-6. The traditional half day trips
will be conducted as usual on the morning of Oct. 6. The banquet speaker
on Saturday, Oct. 5 will be Ted Floyd, editor of the two flagship
publications of the American Birding Association, Birding magazine and
North American Birds magazine. Registration information will be mailed
to KOS members in the quarterly publication mailings sometime in the
next month or so, and will be available on the web at about the same time.
