Notes: A black and white female ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK made an
all too brief appearance in the elderberry on the edge of the road
this morning. Another grosbeak (presumably a BLACK-HEADED) was=3D3D20
heard near the bottom trail. I had a third grosbeak calling from
the trees across from my house when I got home. =3D3D20

A nice little fallout of BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLERS and WARBLING
VIREOS was also evident. This was one of those mornings when one
could actually watch them fall out of the sky through the break in
the fog.

Weather conditions I associate with good fallouts should prevail=3D3D20
for the next few days.

hello tweets,

last evening, i was on hood canal, attending a wedding of two of my
friends, whom i introduced to each other. it was an outdoor wedding
which took place as the sun was setting. the bride arrived by sailboat,
walked up the dock with all the attendants to meet her groom as the
sky blazed brilliant orange and red. occasional raspy calls from
great blue herons interrupted the short ceremony. then, as the bride
and groom's lips met, signifying their new life together, a family of
four purple martins flew overhead, chattering and calling on the breezes.
new life, new love, blessed by nature.

regards,

HI ALL:
To continue on the junco theme, I was wondering how often "pink-sided"
juncos are reported from the NW? I can't find any records from British
Columbia.

All-
Scott Downes and I hit Ocean Shores vicinity this morning from 6:30AM till
about noon. Highlights:

Bar-tailed Godwit, adult molting to winter, probably a female based on long
length of bill. Observed from close range (20 yards) for about 30 minutes
at the Damon Point Pond (Slough?).

1 Juv. Pacific Golden-Plover at the pond hanging out with a juvy
Black-bellied Plover

6+ Wandering Tattlers at the Jetty
35+ Surfbirds, all juvs, at the jetty
5 Black Turnstones (no Ruddys)

Shearwaters were very scarce, unlike when I was at the jetty a week and a
half ago, when there were over a hundred thousand.
Tis all of the highlights, aside from the usual peeps. No Pecs, Scott had =

a
Baird's Sand fly overhead while I was away.

Hi all,
While checking out the shorebirds at Oak Bay County park
near Port Hadlock in Jefferson Co, I noticed a WILLET "type" bird, about
10"-12", with a tattler shaped bill (about as long as a WanTat). The bills=
=3D
I
have seen on most Willets have been fairly long. Also this bird had
greenish-colored legs and foraged by just poking the surface, not plunging
almost to the face like a dowitcher. I decided it was a juvenile Willet.
Good birding,
Doug
Watkins

Hi Tweeters,

This weekend I wanted to get the Black Oystercatcher
off my "seen only in captivity" list, so I borrowed
some info on the most likely spot from Bob Morse's web
site (Thank you Bob, your check is in the mail) and
drove up to Clallum County. Took 2 1/2 hours to get
there and 4 hours to get home. It seems that in
August on Sunday evenings, there are a lot of
Winabagos pulling boats down two lane roads. I think
I learn something useful every time I go out. It was
a treat to see a Greater White-Fronted Goose along the
shore between Seiku and Clallum Bay, and a Whale's
tail just off shore at Cape Flattery, but the prize,
of course, was the 4 Black Oystercatchers on one of
the offshore rocks. Plenty of Cormorants fishing,
plus some Common Murres and Pigeon Guillemots. 32
species for the day, including the biggest "up close"
Raven I have ever seen! All in all, a good day.

Good Birding,

Hello Tweets,

Dave Hayden, and my mother and I birded August 25th-26th in coastal Grays
Harbor and Pacific Cos., mainly areas between Tokeland and Ocean Shores,
with a few stops made a a few locations to and from destinations. We
encountered a total of 122 species, with several highlights, including:

1 non-breeding male BAR-TAILED GODWIT at the Tokeland Marina, Pacific
Co.(PA) on the 25th, presumeably the same bird noted by Michael Dossett on
the 18th.

1 juvenal SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER at Bottle Beach, Grays Harbor(GH) on the
25th

GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE at three locations, including:
4 along S.R.105 at Ocosta,near Bottle Beach,GH on the 25th
1 at the Ocean Shores Game Range,GH on the 25th
4 at Griffiths-Priday State Park,GH on the 26th

AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER at three locations including:

1 juvenal at Bottle Beach,GH on the 25th
1 juvenal at Damon Point,GH on the 25th
1 alternate plumaged adult at Damon Point,GH on the 25th
2 alternate plumaged adults at the Ocean Shores Game Range,GH on the 25th
1 juvenal on the beach at the Marine View Drive beach access, north of the
Ocean Shores Jetty,GH on the 25th

PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER at two locations:

1 alternate plumaged adult at Tokeland,PA on the 25th
1 juvenal at Tokeland,PA on the 25th
5 juvenals at the Ocean Shores Game Range,GH with 2 there on the 26th
7 alternate plumaged adults at the Ocean Shores Game Range, with 4 there on
the 26th

SABINE'S GULL
2 1st year birds off the Ocean Shores Jetty,GH on the 26th

Another highlight, as far as large numbers of shorebirds at one location wa=
=3D
s
a total of more than 14,500+ roosting shorebirds along the beach access
areas between Driftwood Street and Marine View Drive(north of the Ocean
Shores Jetty)at incoming tide on the 25th, with 13 species in several very
large flocks as they attempted to gather for their nightly roost, with the
majority of the birds, other than extremely large numbers of Sanderlings,
but Black-bellied Plovers, Western Sandpipers, Short-billed Dowitchers, and
Red Knots in that order of abundance, among other species at this location.

Weather conditions consisted of partly to mostly sunny skies both days,
after isolated fog and low clouds, being dense at a few locations in the
morning. Winds were rather persistant both days after 11:30 am.

One of our main purposes on this trip was to attempt to locate any
Buff-breasted Sandpipers both days, with NO LUCK, despite a second-hand
report of 2 birds heard, possibly seen at Damon Point on the 26th, as we
thoroughly walked and scoured the general Damon Point pond area, where most
all past reports have come from, associated with nearby sand dunes, and
beach vegetation. Hopefully these birds, possibly more can be relocated at
this location. We also extensively searched a few other appropriate
location, with suitable habitat, but still came up empty handed, along with
several birders at Damon Point during our visit on the 26th.

Subject: Sunday at Bottle Beach

Hey tweets, My husband and I stole a day to run down to Westport and Bottle
Beach. It was a glorious fall (yes, fall) day with perfect surf. John tried
his hardest to stop kicking himself for not bringing down his surfboard. He
told one guy, "I'm birding with my wife instead." He got a lot of
commiserating looks for his plight. Usually surfers will say, "You should
have been here yesterday (or this morning, or whenever you weren't there),
man." But when they found out John couldn't surf right then, they said,
"This is a perfect day, man." I suppose birders would be tempted to say the
same thing to the luckless colleague who had left his/her binoculars behind
that day.

At Bottle Beach we watched the tide evaporate out (having misread the tide
tables), and then slowly ooze back in again. In the interval we hit
Westport, where one of our most notable sights was a BRANT swimming along
in the protected bay. We also saw a COMMON MURRE swimming among the
numerous crab pots on the bay side of the jetty. I haven't seen one of
those in a long, long time.

Back at Bottle Beach, we took our shoes off and hiked out to the mudflats.
Made us feel like kids again. Our most notable sight was one SNOWY PLOVER
shining spanking white head-on in the sun. We were surprised to see good
numbers of least and western sandpipers and semipalmated plovers high up on
the beach, not down near the water. We also saw four WANDERING TATTLERS and
numerous BLACK-BELLIED PLOVERS doing the same thing. Maybe little critters
were coming to the surface after the sands had dried out somewhat? All the
birds were certainly finding something good to eat there.

Another oddity: a COMMON YELLOWTHROAT persistently chased a BLACK-CAPPED
CHICKADEE all around and through a bush on the trail. The yellowthroat just
wouldn't stop, not even long enough for the poor chickadee to grab a bug or
two to fuel the fight. Neither one was willing to give up what must have
been a prime bush, although there were many other similar bushes right by.
Isn't it funny the way birds will stick to one plant above all others? Or
maybe I should say, isn't it funny how bugs will do that, as I assume the
birds follow the bugs? Consider the small grove of trees at Anahuac NWR in
Texas. That grove has been famous for years as a migrant trap, while other
similar groves on the site attract virtually nothing. Or how about the
willow tree near the south foot bridge by the dime parking lot at the Fill?
Always a great place to check for migrating warblers. I've seen
yellow-rumps there, as well as orange-crowned, and yellows. In fact, one
year, people found an American Redstart there. - Connie, Seattle

Tomorrow my parents and I are planning on driving into to Canada to
find me a car (apparently Canada has better deals). We're hoping to find
"The One" in Vancouver, and then we hope to turn it into a birding trip,
driving east through BC and then drop in to northcentrel/northeastern
Washington. I've never been to the Okanogan this time of year, and have
several target birds, which I've listed below, and would appreciate any
information on the best bets for finding such birds, or just general
information on birding the Okanogan and nearby areas. Also, what kind of
birding might one do going east through BC just north of WA?
Here's my target list:
Northern Goshawk
Ruffed Grouse
Spruce Grouse
Basically, any grouse . . .
Great Grey Owl
Boreal Owl
Williamson's Sapsucker
Three-toed Woodpecker
Black-backed Woodpecker
Boreal Chickadee
American Redstart
Northern Waterthrush
Clay-colored Sparrow
Black-throated Sparrow
Grasshopper Sparrow
Bobolink
Pine Grosbeak
White-winged Crossbill

I realize that some of these birds have already gone elsewhere for the year=
=3D
,
but I thought I'd give it a try anyway.

Thanks!

Subject: Ballard martins fledged today


Early this afternoon I checked on the two purple martin nests on =3D3D
Shilshole Bay in Ballard. I counted at least nine individuals in the =3D3D
vicinity, with much of the activity either at the nest box pilings or to =
=3D
=3D3D
the north on the top of the tall condo complex, about 100 yards away. =3D3D
It's a treat to see such a flurry of new activity, and it's a relief to =3D=
3D
see them try their new wings and avoid the perils of the nest. In past =3D3=
D
years I've seen them work their way north to Shilshole marina, perching =3D=
3D
on a number of the many sailboat masts. I expect to see them roost in =3D3D
the boxes for about another week before they leave for the season. I =3D3D
often tell people that martins depart on Labor Day weekend.

I was told today that several weeks ago a couple of kids were on a =3D3D
raft near an active martin gourd, and the kids rapped on the nest with a =
=3D
=3D3D
stick. I suspect that's why that Shilshole Bay nest, containing several =3D=
3D
eggs, was abandoned.

Now it's time to check on the Elliott Bay martins, after I slather on =3D=
3D
some sun screen.

Last week we were kayaking on the Columbia River out of the kayak and
B&B facility at the Skamokawa Center, tracing some of the routes of the
Lewis and Clark expedition on the river; and yes, we got into some of the
rain squalls. One of the kayak instructors has put up nest boxes at the
center and managed them for the Purple Martins by excluding starlings
until the martins arrived. The martins have successfully raised at least
two families, and we enjoyed watching them and listening to their
distinctive voices. We counted ten of them flying around, including males,
females and youngsters. All the young had fledged, but were still being
fed by the parents. We also saw numerous Purple Martins using the eight
plastic "gourd" nest boxes that have been maintained for several years at
the east end of the Columbia White-tail Deer Wildlife Refuge (Julia Butler
Hanson) upriver along Steamboat Slough from Skamokawa. We were not able to
get a good count on these martins.
Another interesting observation on the wildlife refuge was Turkey
Vultures, at least a couple dozen, including juveniles, feasting on the
carcass of a sea lion that had lodged at high tide on the rock riprap
along Steamboat Slough. Vultures were flying all along the river as we
kayaked.

And the Great Egret, at our boat launch earlier in the week, hasn't gone
that far north yet:

"Sunday afternoon between 5 and 6 o'clock a Great Egret was at the
mouth of the Serpentine River just east of the railway trestle. This area
is accessible from 131A St. just south of Colebrook Road." - Pete

1 SOLITARY SANDPIPER
1 COMMON POORWILL, (called a few times)
46 COMMON NIGHTHAWKS

No sign of the 50 Painted Turtles, so assume they have buried in mud.
Water levels still dropping in spite of some rain last week.

Purple Martins generally forage high during the day, where and when
misquitos are least active. Although they will eat mosquitos, they are
not the voracious mosquito eaters they have been made out to be. The
great myth, wherein martins are said to eat 2000 mosquitos per day, is a
claim that can be attributed to some marketers of commercially made
eastern purple martin apartment style houses.

How about trying a sign that says, "the residents of this birdhouse eat
the mosquitos that bite you".

The ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER was relocated today at approx 11 a.m. in the
densely treed part of Beach Grove Park, Tsawwassen. This park is located on
17A Ave., east of Beach Grove Elementary School. Park & walk into the area

understory, and the shore. The bird was associating with a large mixed
flock of passerines: warblers, vireos, tanagers, grosbeak, chickadees, Down=
=3D
y
Woodpecker, etc. The recommended strategy to find this bird is to locate
this mixed flock, then watch for the Ash-throated Flycatcher. The flock,
with the Ash-throated, was first found in the northeast sector of the park.
When last seen, shortly before noon, the flock had moved, and were about in
the middle of the area of dense trees.

The WHITE-HEADED WOODPECKER was again seen at the mullein patch at exactly
10:00 am and fed there for 15 minutes before flying to the trunk of a nearb=
=3D
y
pine where it remained for a further 55 minutes. The bird has been located
near a gravel pull off approx 0.6 km past the km 11 cattleguard on Camp
McKinney Road, east of Oliver.

Hi Tweets,
Birded mainly in Kittitas & Grant Co. this weekend (8/24-8/27) with Carol
Schulz and all 3 days and also with Scott Downes on Saturday. During the
entire trip we drove 750+ miles and had 153 species total. Scott pretty muc=
=3D
h
covered what we saw on Saturday, so I won't repeat that part of our trip.
On Sunday we set off at about 7:00am from Ellensburg and went up Colockum
Road. Near the base of Colockum Rd. (Kittitas Co) Carol Schulz and I birded
in the bushes looking for migrants. In the bushes and riparian area here we
encountered the following birds (many were migrants):
1 calling GRAY FLYCATCHER
1 Warbling Vireo
1 RED-EYED VIREO
1 Black-headed Grosbeak
17 Brewer's Sparrows (ad. and juvs.)
15 Vesper Sparrows
1 probable adult CLAY-COLORED SPARROW (was seen for only 5 seconds before
flying off with a couple of Chipping Sparrows)
10 Chipping Sparrows (mostly juv.)
4 Spotted Towhees
2 Steller's Jays
1 Western Tanager

Further up Colockum Rd we passed most open Ponderosa Pine without stoppin=
=3D
g,
but I did hear a Pygmy Nuthatch out the window. At the first open bluff alo=
=3D
ng
Colockum Road, we came across:
2 Dusky Flycatchers
4 Gray Flycatchers
1 Clark's Nutcracker
1 female WILLIAMSON'S SAPSUCKER
1 Common Nighthawk
This bluff has a very good view of much of the horizon and has great
potential for numbers of raptors in 1.5 weeks or so.
Near the top of Colockum Pass was 1 imm. NORTHERN GOSHAWK and an adult
Sharp-shinned Hawk. Instead of continuing down Colockum Rd. to Wenatchee li=
=3D
ke
we have always done in previous visits, we turned off to the left (west) to
head over to the Naneum/Four Corners area. This area is very much boreal
forest, with Engelmann Spruce being common in many places and also Lodgepol=
=3D
e
Pine and Douglas-Fir. Good, though patchy, habitat for Spruce Grouse which =
=3D
is
what one of our goals was here.
The roads are long, dusty, narrow, and rocky. High clearance is necessary
here, and 4-wheel drive is helpful but not totally needed. Signage is not
good in this area and it is very easy to get lost. In fact I am somewhat
confused about the area and the roads myself. We continued, getting on
Jumpoff Ridge Rd and then onto Schaller Rd down into Wenatchee to get gas,
getting lost a time or two on the way. But we did make it and then were bac=
=3D
k
on our way up to a wet meadow. I won't mention all the times we got lost on
the way up but we did eventually make it up to the meadow where we camped.
Elk were abundant here, and it seemed that we camped in the middle of the
main herd which is about 150-200 strong, containing a couple 3-point bulls
and many cows and calves. Anyway, back to birds. About 50-60 Mountain
Chickadees, 1 Chestnut-backed Chickadee, 2 Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a couple
each Townsend's and Yellow-rumped Warblers, and other common high elevation
species. At 8:20pm we set out to do some owling. Our hopes dropped some as
2-3 Great Horned Owls called, but luckily for us they continued down the
valley not to return until the next morning. At 8:45pm (as it was getting
quite dark), we tried for Boreal Owl. Success! We got an immediate response
from 3 BOREAL OWLS near this wet meadow. 2 of the 3 seen in flight only but
still quite well; 1 being an adult and the other a juvenile. They gave
several different calls, as follows:
Most common call (given by both ad. and juv.) was a series of odd, somewhat
nasal barks like "Ark! Ark! Ark!" almost like a small dog.
Long, mournful calls given by adult; I'm thinking this is what has been
described as "MoooAh."
The juvenile also was giving some chatters and screeches.

The next day we birding Naneum Ridge and then came out at Coleman Cr. Rd.
near Ellensburg. We found:
Black-chinned Hummingbird
Rufous Hummingbird
ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK (a dark-morph bird, quite early and my first of the year)
RED-EYED VIREO
We did see more I'm sure and made a couple stops on the way back, but it =
=3D
is
late and time for sleep. Good Birding.

Tweets,

At dawn on Sunday morning Judy Trapp and I saw a flock of 45 -
50 Common Mergansers on the east side of Jetty Island in
Everett. The birds were on the shore and as we came down the
channel in a canoe the birds nervously moved to the water and
headed over to the mudflats on the mainland. It seemed the
birds could not fly, as they scuttled quickly across the
surface of the water. Do mergansers go through a flightless
period when molting or could this be a huge group of young?
They seemed to be all females or juvenile birds, however they
were too far away to get a good look. They were very skittish
and we were not going to get near them.

Nahkeeta Northwest Presents:
for September 2001

Arctic and Resident Shorebirds of the Salish Sea:
from sandpipers to oystercatchers

Shorebird Program Description

Shorebirds pose one of the most challenging avian groups to identify and
study in the field due to their size, cryptic coloration and fast pace
both on foot and on-the wing. This class is offered to anyone
fascinated by the millions of shorebirds in passage and the less
conspicuous resident species of western Washington's marine shore and
wetlands. We will demystify shorebird identification through the
examination of individual species characteristics, habitat associations,
seasonal occurrence and offer some practical tips to help shorebirding
become enjoyable and rewarding!

Join us for a fun seasonal study of these fast-moving birds through a
4-part series including two classroom and two field sessions. This is
an opportunity to master the skills necessary to identify and understand
the habits and habitats of our resident and migrant shorebirds. The
class is open to beginners to advanced skill levels.

Instructor: David Drummond, Wildlife Biologist with Nahkeeta Northwest

Cost: $140 for the series of four classes* (or $35 per class)

Schedule: Lecture - Wed. Sept. 5, 7-9:30 pm
Field Study - Sat. Sept 8, 8-11 am
Lecture - Wed. Sept 12, 7-9:30 pm
Field Study and wrap up - Sat. Sept 15, 2:30-5:30 pm

Location: Padilla Bay - Breazeale Interpretive Center, Bayview Wash.

The joys of email almost got the better of me on this one, my first post,
but here it is once again, I hope. Just as I was packing up after an
afternoon of sketching and painting I heard a hawk call and spotted a
Red-tailed Hawk gliding into Porter Creek Canyon, about two miles up from
the Chehalis. I stopped to watch this lazy summer afternoon flight, when
from the ridge around the valley one, two, three, ... four other Red-tailed
Hawks joined into this upward spiral. Ever higher they went until they
disappeared out of sight....

Most birders have probably experienced some or all of the
aspects of the following scenario. You spend a few hours
birding a refuge and head home only to find out that an
interesting bird was found at the refuge just before you
left. You head back but can't find anyone where you heard
the bird was last reported. You spend 15 minutes scanning
the area but there is no sign of the bird. You drive to the
next pulloff and find a group of birders that inform you
that they were just on the bird a couple minutes earlier but
it flushed and nobody's sure where it went. There are
several obvious places to look for it, but they are in
opposite directions. If you could split up, the area could
be covered more efficiently.

The cooperative use of FRS two-way radios could avoid most
of the pitfalls in the previous scenario. For those
unfamiliar with Family Radio Service (FRS) radios, they are
"walkie-talkies" that use a specific frequency band the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opened for public
use several years ago. The band has fourteen channels, plus
subcodes for each channel, so that multiple groups can
communicate in the same area without interfering with each
other. FRS radios are relatively inexpensive and allow
two-way communications between users on the same channel and
sub-code within a range of up to two miles. They do not
require a license.

Recognizing the advantages of being able to communicate via
FRS radios in situations similar to those described in the
introductory scenario, or being able to just find out what's
about in the area at the moment, or even extending the
discussion on a problematic bird, a number of birding
communities have adopted standard FRS channels and subcodes
for their county, state, etc. in the last couple years. The
channel choices have been made based on area codes and other
simple to remember combinations. As these standards
proliferated a number of people started assembling listings
of these regional standards that could be referenced by
birders. In April 2001 a conversation developed on the
BIRDCHAT mailing list around the idea of a national standard
to simplify figuring out what channel and subcode was in use
in a particular area. This discussion finally settled on the
goal of proposing a single continent-wide channel and
subcode for birding. In May the ABA was approached about
forming a committee to look into this issue. The ABA then
enlisted 10 birders with an interest and experience with FRS
radios to form a committee. Members were chosen to provide
representation across the ABA area (U.S. and Canada). The
charge to the group was to decide on a standard channel and
subcode that ABA would recommend to others.

The committee corresponded entirely via email throughout the
process. Initial discussions were around basic technology
and other factors to consider in the selection of one or
more channel/subcode combinations. Major criteria adopted by
the committee established that the channel/subcode should be
easy to remember, unlikely to be used by non-birders, and
take advantage of existing standards. Using these criteria
and others the committee selected a small number of
channel/subcodes and then each committee member polled
birders in their region about their channel/subcode
preferences. What was most impressive about the polling
results was the desire by a vast majority that a
continent-wide standard be adopted whatever the actual
channel/subcode was. After this polling and further
conversations the committee took a final vote and decided on
channel 11 and subcode 22 as the FRS standard ABA would
recommend to others.

A number of important issues came up in the committee's
conversations and through the regional polling that needed
to be addressed in an FRS recommendation. These included
topics such as what actual communications should take place
over the standard channel and what to do when non-birders
were using the channel. These issues and the continent
channel and subcode standard were then brought together in
the general FRS recommendation document that follows.

We hope these recommendations will be seriously considered by
all birders using FRS radios and adopted wherever possible.
The committee would like to thank all those who contributed their
ideas and opinions throughout this process. We are interested
in hearing back from people about the recommendations and
about experiences in implementing them. Send correspondence
to a committee member near you.

ABA RECOMMENDATION ON FRS RADIO USAGE FOR BIRDING
-------------------------------------------------

FRS Overview
------------
FRS radios are increasingly being used by birders who come
together (either planned or unplanned) to communicate the
location of interesting birds and to coordinate groups. They
are used in car caravans, at birding hot spots, and often at
"chase sites". These two-way radios are small, handy, and
effective for communications for about a two-mile range.

ABA FRS Recommendations
-----------------------
In an effort to improve communication of birders using FRS
radios in North America, the ABA is making the following
recommendations:

1) States/Provinces should adopt and publicize a standard
FRS channel/subcode for birding communications.

a) The ABA recommends the adoption of channel 11 & subcode 22
(11/22) to try to achieve a continent-wide standard.

i) States/Provinces without a standard are encouraged to
adopt 11/22 rather than coming up with their own
conflicting standard.

ii) States/Provinces with an existing standard other than
11/22 are encouraged to switch to the 11/22 standard.

b) The FRS standard chosen by a state/province should be
publicized through any FRS birding directories that are
created, through any RBA transcripts for the region,
and through any other relevant birding publications.

2) Radio communications on the standard channel/subcode
should be limited to:

a) Requests and reports about the location of
rare and interesting birds.

b) Coordination between birding groups/parties.

Examples of acceptable communications:
* "This is John Doe. Are there any birders here?"
* "Where are you and what have you seen?"
* "We're at Z. We saw a Y at X and a W at V."
* "Has anybody seen the X?"
* "I've relocated the X. It's at Z."
* "The ABA tour is now leaving X and heading to Y."
* "Let's meet on 10/22 to discuss lunch."

Examples of unacceptable communications:
* "So, he said..., then she said..."
* "Did you watch the game last night?"
* Any and all signals not made with human voice.
* Any conversations not germane to the bird or location
at hand.

3) Radio communications should be considerate of other birders,
non-birders, and the birds.

a) Radio users should be sensitive to the disturbance the
volume of their radio and their speaking voice can have
on others and adjust accordingly. In some situations it
may be inappropriate to use FRS radios.

b) When using a standard birding channel you are sharing the
airways with other birders. If you need to converse
frequently with people in your group, switch to a different
channel/subcode.

c) Radio communications should take into account the potential
impact on birds and habitat. For general guidelines see the
"ABA Code of Birding Ethics".

4) FRS radio feature recommendations:

a) Radios with 14 channels and 38 subcodes

b) No radios that have "over/roger" tones that can't be disabled.
These tones should always be disabled when in the field.

Frequently Asked Questions
--------------------------
1) Q: What do I do if I have a radio that doesn't have 14 channels?
A: Chances are that your radio will not be compatible with the
11/22 standard or other 14/38 compatible standards. You will
have to purchase another radio if you wish to communicate with
birders using these standards.

2) Q: What do I do if I have a radio without 38 subcodes?
A: If you have a radio with the same channel as the local
channel/subcode you will be able to listen in on communications
from birders using the standard but you will not be able
to send a transmission that they can hear.

3) Q: What do I do if non-birders are already using 11/22?
A: Birders' use of 11/22 has no priority over non-birders' use
if they are already using it when you arrive at a location.
The best that can be done is to inform the non-birders that
11/22 is being used nationwide before switching your
radio's subcode to 21, 20, etc.

A suggested scenario is given below:

Scenario:
--------
S1) Birder: Arrives at location, radio set at 11/22.
"Hi this John Doe, any birders in the area?"
S3) Non-birder:
"Hey dude, we're already using this subcode!"
S4) Birder: "(in a polite voice) Sorry, this is the subcode
birders are using nationwide. We'll move to
subcode 21. If other birders contact you can
you tell them we're on code 21?"
S5) Non-birder:
a) "Sure. Thanks for moving." GOTO S6
b) "Dude, get off our code." GOTO S7
c) "That's too much trouble. It's easier
for us to move."
S6) Birder: "Can you also contact us on 21 when you leave
so we can switch back to 11/22?"
S7) Try subcodes 21, 20, etc. for a usable subcode, if it
isn't 21 recontact Non-birder on 22 with update if they
responded favorably above.

4) Q: What do I do if transmissions are being blocked by other
users of channel 11 or by other interference?
A: Switch to 10/22 and then 9/22 to see if those channels
are usable.

5) Q: What do I do if I hear birders overusing the channel?
A: By cooperating with the usage recommendations birders
can make the standard channel as useful as possible.
Unrelevant communications will cause people to switch
channels or turn off their radios, limiting communication.
The usage recommendations are not regulations to be
enforced however. Birders should not take on the role of
"channel police". Birders can make polite requests if
they feel that the channel is being overused.

A suggested scenario is given below:

Scenario:
--------
Birder 1: Arrives at location and other birders are
chitchatting away on 11/22.
Birder 1: "Hi this is John Doe, are there any birders here?"
Other Birders:
Hopefully, realizing that others are listening,
the other birders quit chitchatting.
But if they persist...
Birder 1: "(in a polite voice) Can you guys limit transmissions
on 11/22 to bird sightings and location info, it's
pretty noisy listening in on this end."
If they persist, switch temporarily to subcode 21 or
some other usable channel/subcode.

6) Q: Should 11/22 be used to coordinate birding groups (caravans,
etc.)?
A: Internal communications of a large group can easily overwhelm
11/22 and make it unusable for others. Large groups should
choose a different channel/code for logistical discussions.
Separate radios can be set to monitor and report interesting
findings on 11/22, or radios with scanning features can be
used to monitor both channels.

continued down the island. An hour or so later, the call came out that the
Curlew was back. A quick U-turn yielded a fabulous look; we would have mis=

it without the radios.

Use of these radios could be excellent at places like Ocean Shores or the
Sammish or anywhere else that many birders congregate in season.

With apologies to Ruth, Patrick and Dave, I have paraphrased this portion o=

f
the report to address a problem many have. These sightings were for
Saturday. My friend Kathleen Wolgemuth and myself showed up about half an
hour later than the above group, spoke briefly with Ruth, then watched in
fascination as the birds took flight ahead of beach strollers oblivious to
the spectacle, wheeled around for a while then settled back down in the sam=
=3D
e
area after the people had passed. Sometimes these birds flew right at us,
parting ranks to give us a 20 ft. buffer. We were impressed and vowed to
return Sunday night to see whatever was available. Sunday's tally for our
7pm visit? 4 Semipalmated Plovers and 7 Caspian Terns...oh, and a few gulls
of mixed parentage. So for those who travel out to our beaches expecting to
see shorebirds of various species....maybe you will and maybe you won't. It
is humbling.

of Lake Lenore there was a juvenile LONG-TAILED JAEGER and at the north end
of Lake Lenore there was an immature MEW GULL. Also, there was a
SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER at the ponds just west of Dotson Road along the
frontage road parallelling the south side of I-90. Otherwise there was a
good sprinkling of BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS at various locations, 5 SEMI-PALMATED
SANDPIPERS, and two SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, and one PECTORAL SANDPIPER at
Othello. That's it. Good luck and good birding.

Tweeters,

This is such a very important action for all birdwatchers to take. The Bus=
=3D
h
administration is making us go through an expensive public comment period
all over again because they would like to overturn the Roadless Areas rule
that protects nearly 60 million acres of wilderness. (They say the 600
public hearings and 1.6 million comments received last year were not
sufficient input!) Well -- let's give them our input all over again!
PLEASE write a letter or email to the Forest Service BEFORE September 10th.
We MUST ACT if we want this protection to happen. Simply read the Sample
Letter below, cut and paste into an email or letter, personalize it a bit,
and send to the Forest Service by September 10. The birds will thank you
for saving their homes!
--Lauren Braden, Seattle Audubon Society

PS - 72% of comments last year on this issue from Washington State were IN
FAVOR of protecting roadless areas! Don't let them get away with ignoring
the public will!
_________________________________
Dear Seattle Audubon Friends,
I write to ask each of you who has ever hiked in a forest, gone bird
watching or played in a mountain stream as a child to take a few moments to
read and act upon this action alert. Thank you!

On January 12th, 2001 the U.S. Forest Service issued the final rules for
protecting the "Roadless Areas " of our National Forests. These rules
protect 58.5 million acres of our wildest remaining national forests. Mor=
=3D
e
wildlife habitat can be conserved through this policy than any other in the
past decade! These wilderness areas are home to more than 200 threatened o=
=3D
r
endangered species, as well as 1,930 species whose numbers are diminishing.
Marbled Murrelets, Northern Goshawks, Spotted Owls, bears, wolves, moose,
otters, salmon and migratory songbirds -- they all need wild, pristine land
to flourish.

Under pressure from special interests, the Bush administration is trying to
undo one of the most important conservation measures in our nation's histor=
=3D
y
-- the Roadless Area
Conservation Rules. Adopted after more than 600 public hearings and a
record-breaking 1.6 million public comments -- virtually all in support --
this historic measure protects our last wild forests from mining, drilling
and road-building. The Bush administration wants to diminish or even
eliminate the protections found in the Rules and thus is currently acceptin=
=3D
g
formal comments on the Rules.

As individuals concerned about wildlife and habitat, it is critical that
each of us take a few moments to write to the Forest Service and urge the
immediate implementation of the Roadless Areas Conservation Rules. Many
Seattle Audubon members have already spoken up. Join with us to protect
these forests by writing a letter today!

Please send a letter to the Forest Service Chief, using the letter below as
a guide or go to one of the following web sites for more information:
<http://www.ourforests.org/>
<http://www.americanlands.org/forestweb/10_talking_points.htm>

Please include answers to the 10 Questions asked by the Forest Service, eve=
=3D

though they are technical in nature- use our letter as a guide! It is very
important for the Forest Service to receive letters that answer these
questions.

The deadline for comments is SEPTEMBER 10!

Sample letter- cut and paste into an email or letter, personalize, and send
to the Forest Service by September 10:

Dear Chief Bosworth:

I strongly support the historic Roadless Area Conservation Rules to protect
58.5 million acres of our national forests. These rules were adopted after
more than 600 public hearings over three years across the country. More
than 1.6 million Americans submitted comments, the vast majority of whom
were in support of strong protections for our last remaining untouched
forests.

I oppose any attempts to weaken protections for this land or to allow
forest-by-forest decisions to dictate whether to log or build roads in thes=
=3D
e
special places. The Roadless Rules already provide exceptions that allow
road-building and logging when needed to
address concerns about wildfires and forest health and to protect public
health and safety.

Here are my answers to the 10 Questions:

Question 1: Informed Decision-making. What is the appropriate role of the
local forest planning as required by National Forest Management Act (NFMA)
in evaluating protection and management of the Inventoried Roadless Areas
(IRAS)?

Answer: Local forest planning has historically failed to provide protectio=
=3D
n
for "Roadless values". In fact, this local forest planning process has
resulted in the destruction of about 2.8 million acres of roadless areas
over the past 20 years.

Question 2: Working Together. What is the best way for the Forest Service t=
=3D
o
work with the variety of States, tribes, local communities, other
organizations, and individuals in a collaborative manner to ensure that
concerns about roadless values are heard and addressed through fair and ope=
=3D
n
process?

Answer: The Roadless Areas Conservation Rules were developed very carefull=
=3D
y
with a record-breaking level of public involvement. The Forest Service
received a staggering 1.6 million written comments, of which about 95% spok=
=3D
e
for strong protection of roadless values. The States, local communities,
and other organizations have had the same ample opportunities to comment on
the Roadless Rules.

Question 3: Protecting Forests. How should Inventoried Roadless Areas be
managed to provide for healthy forests, including protection from severe
wildfires and the buildup of hazardous fuels as well as to provide for the
detection and prevention of disease outbreaks?

Answer: The Rules announced on January 12, 2001 provide exceptions that
allow road building and logging to occur to address concerns regarding
uncontrollable wildfires and forest health. In general, unlogged forests
are very resistant to fires, while logging and road-building contribute to
wildfires.

Question 4: Protecting Communities, Homes and Property. How should
communities and private property near Inventoried Roadless Areas be
protected from the risks associated with natural events, such as major wild
fires that may occur on adjacent federal lands?

Answer: The best way the FS could deal with this critical issue, is to
educate the communities and private property owners in and near National
Forests about various ways of fire proofing their communities and property.
Unlogged and roadless forests are generally very resistant to wildfires.

Question 5: Protecting access to property. What is the best way to
implement the laws that ensure States, tribes, organizations, and private
citizens have reasonable access to property they own within Inventoried
Roadless Areas?

Answer: The RACR does not displace the private property laws of the country=
=3D
,
and has absolutely no effect on either the State's, or other private
inholdings.

Question 6: Describing values. What are the characteristics, environmenta=
=3D
l
values, social and economic considerations, and other factors that FS shoul=
=3D
d
consider as it evaluates Inventoried Roadless Areas?

Answer: The FS has already identified Inventoried Roadless Areas through
extensive public input, under the aegis of the Roadless Areas Conservation
Rules. It is simply time to implement them.

Question 7: Describing Activities. Are there specific activities that
should be expressly prohibited or expressly allowed for Inventoried Roadles=
=3D
s
Areas through forest plan revisions and amendments?

Answer: Road-building, mining, and commercial logging should be expressly
prohibited, along with motorized off-road vehicle use.

Question 8: Designating Areas. Should Inventoried Roadless Areas selected
for future roadless protection through the local forest plan revision
process be proposed to Congress for wilderness designation, or should they
be maintained under a specific designation for the roadless area management
under the forest plan?

Answer: This should not be an either/or issue, and the Roadless Areas
Conservation Rules require no changes to address these matters. By law,
forest plans must evaluate the wilderness potential of all the roadless
areas and recommend to the US Congress the approval of wilderness
designation.

Question 9: Competing Values. How can forest service work effectively with
individuals and groups with strongly competing views, values, and beliefs i=
=3D
n
evaluating and managing public lands and resources, recognizing that the
agency cannot meet the desires of all the parties?

Answer: The Rules have significant widespread public and bipartisan support
from all cross sections of the American society. All types of organization=
=3D
s
have had the same opportunity to provide input.

Question 10: Other Concerns. What other concerns, comments, or interests
relating to the protection and management of Inventoried Roadless Areas are
important?

Answer: The implementation of the Roadless Areas Conservation Rules without
delay and the protection of all forests are very important.

I urge you to abide by the will of the American people and fully implement
the Roadless Rule as it is written. We expect immediate protection for our
last untouched wildlife sanctuaries.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME

Functionally stranded in Everett in an attempt to head north for home
Tuesday eve, I detoured over to Spencer I. for a quick birdwalk while
traffic subsided. Coverage from 5:30-7 generated just two Least Sandpipers
for shorebirds, but a PURPLE MARTIN and DUSKY FLYCATCHER were noteworthy.
The next few weeks are a promising time for westside Duskies: last year I
had calling birds on Sept. 1 (Graysmarsh, Clallam Co.) and Sept. 3 (s. end
of Lake McMurray, Skagit Co.). Combined with widely-noted field marks, the
soft "whit" call note is diagnostic. This note is in fact rather easily
told from the higher-pitched, piping "whip" of Hammond's and the call notes
of other western Empids with which it could be confused (e. g.,
Pacific-slope, Gray, Willow, etc.).

The DUSKY fed actively from elderberry thickets along the west end of the
loop trail. More expected, five WILLOW FLYCATCHERS also lingered, singly,
at various points along the trail.

Washington's Wild Birds Under Attack by USDA
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is requesting public
comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) of "Alternative
Strategies for the Management of Damage Caused by Migratory Birds in the
State of Washington." The EA analyzes potential environmental
effects of conducting management activities to reduce or alleviate
bird-caused damage to agriculture, property, natural resources, and human
health and safety.

Statistics show that from Fiscal Year 1996-2000 the USDA killed the
following numbers of migratory birds in Washington State:
30,090 gulls, 4 Double-crested cormorants, 69 Mallards, 34 Dabbling ducks,
17 Diving ducks, 1 Red-tailed hawk, 1,257 House finches,
17 Northern flickers, 2 Great-blue herons, 8 Barn swallows, 2 American
robins

The EA has identified five "management" alternatives for consideration. The
alternatives run the gamut from maintaining the Status quo
(which includes lethal control, non-lethal control, and technical
assistance), to using lethal control only. Please write to the USDA and let
them know that you support:
Alternative 2: Nonlethal Control and Technical Assistance Only Alternative
Alternative 2 would discontinue any lethal direct control of migratory bird=
=3D
s
by the USDA, except in emergency situations involving human
health and safety. Both nonlethal direct control and technical assistance
(verbal or written advice, recommendations, demonstrations and
training, distribution of literature and materials for others to use in
managing bird problems) would continue to be provided by the USDA.

Your letter does not need to be long or elaborate. You do not need to be an
expert on bird biology, management, etc. It is enough just to
let them know that you are a citizen of Washington State, that you expect
humane and progressive methods of addressing wildlife
"problems", and that you do not want your tax dollars being used to kill
Washington's wild birds. Ask that your letter be included as an
official comment regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) of Alternative
Strategies For the Management of Damage Caused by
Migratory Birds in the State of Washington.
COMMENTS ARE DUE BY THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2001.
I'm sorry for the short notice but PLEASE find the time to write a short
note on this issue. Remember folks, this is the agency that just
one month ago was rounding up and gassing Canada geese throughout the Puget
sound region - also courtesy of our tax dollars. Without
our comments on this issue, which alternative do you think they're going to
choose?

Greetings. This may have already been answered in the past but I was
wondering if anyone knows the origin of the phrase "murder of crow."

I have read "A "murder" of crows is based on the persistent but fallacious
folk tale that crows form tribunals to judge and punish the bad behavior of
a member of the flock. If the verdict goes against the defendant, that bird
is killed (murdered) by the flock."

Any thoughts would be rather splendid.

Cheers,
David Williams

Hi tweets,

I have been on lurk mode for a while but hopefully things will kick in this
winter. I am just wondering if someone can tell me the exact location as to
where I can find kestrels up here in the north. Arlington is where I live
and I don't know the streets real well on the flats cuz I was to busy
lookin' for birds. You know. Anyway, if someone can give me a few locations
as to deffinant places and then secondary that would be great. If it could
be given to me before Sat. that would be great cuz I plan on going up this
weekend for some raptor watching.

Tweeters,
Seattle Audubon has been closely following this issue and will comment.
Birds are being killed (shot) by the thousands by a federal agency called
Wildlife Services, formerly called "Animal Control." Everyone who can
should write a letter stating that the EA (Environmental Assessment) does
not address cost/effectiveness of various control measures; costs of contro=
=3D
l
vs. economic losses; and the overall effectiveness of "controlling" a small
number of dabbling & diving ducks, woodpeckers, herons, terns, etc.

Margaret, I'll get my letter off right away, but I'm
still trying to figure out how much crop damage the
two Robins did! And I guess the Herons got caught in
a fish farm, Huh?
Thanks for the alert,

David,

"Murder of Crows" is just one of hundreds of such terms in use hundreds of
years ago by the English hunting set. More information and links can be

Hi Tweeters,
Moon-scoped and listened carefully tonight for 40 minutes from 8:50pm to
9:30pm and noticed a nice movement over my house. Skies are clear and the
moon is fairly large. I noted the following:
Flying past moon:
15 passerine-type birds (all robin-sized or smaller)
2 gulls
1 Great Blue Heron
1 Green Heron*
All were headed due south except the gulls which were flying to the southea=
=3D
st.

Heard flying over:
1 Caspian Tern*
1 Barn Owl
20 Swainson's Thrushes (it still mystifies me that I have heard so many ove=
=3D
r
my yard but have yet to see one actually in it)
1 Hermit Thrush
3 Townsend's Warblers
1 Yellow Warbler
4 unidentified warblers
1 Willow Flycatcher*
1 Warbling Vireo
1 Western Tanager
2 Juncos
*Yard Bird (Nocturnal migration is a great opportunity to add yard birds)

Good night and good birding!

Hello, this is the Audubon Society of Portland Rare Bird Report. This

A female ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK was on Coxcomb Hill in Astoria August 26.
A probable EURASIAN WHIMBREL was seen August 27 at the north Jetty of the

conspicuous during the week. BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS were seen during
the week at the South Jetty of the Columbia River, at the Necanicum River
mouth, the South Jetty of Yaquina Bay, at Tenmile Estuary in northern
Coos County, and suprisingly at the Redmond Sewage Ponds.

Offshore boat trips last week-end found high numbers of migrants. Over
125 LONG-TAILED JAEGERS, 200 SABINE'S GULLS, some RED PHALAROPES and
ARCTIC TERNS were out of Newport August 25. A SKUA was out of Charleston
the next day.

A FORSTER'S TERN was at Gold Beach August 23 and at Yaquina Bay August
22. A LARK SPARROW and a possible SHARP-TAILED SANDPIPER was at Bandon
August 24. A PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVER was at the mouth of the Siuslaw River
August 23 and an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER was along Wireless Road near
Astoria August 25.

An AVOCET was at the Mollala Sewage Ponds August 23. Two MUTE SWANS and
30 GREAT EGRETS were at the Fernhill Wetlands in Forest Grove August 27.
On August 28 a WRENTIT was at the E.E. Wilson WA. Both a PEREGRINE FALCON
and a PRAIRIE FALCON were at the Tangent Sewage Ponds August 29.

A LONG-BILLED CURLEW was at Alvadore, north of Fern Ridge Reservoir
August 26. A BREWER'S SPARROW was at the reservoir August 22.

A COMMON TERN was at Thief Valley Reservoir, south of LaGrande August 29.
Over 70 KESTRELS were in the Enterprise area August 26. A flock of 22
BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS was at the Gutierrez Ranch in eastern Crook County

Folks,

Somebody I know once referred (jokingly) to Peregrine Falcons as "trash
birds" in Clatsop County because we see them so often...case in point: a
large beautiful adult PEREGRINE FALCON has been at the tidgegate along
Wireless Rd almost every day for the past week, harassing the peeps, gulls
and killdeer that have been utilizing the recently leveled cow pasture
there.
She's (size would indicate she) worth a peek!

HI:
Does anyone know what the status of Mute Swans in WA is? In the latest
WOS field card I've seen WOS still lists them, but I thought WOS was going
to take them off the state list?

So I asked local (Lummi Island, WA) birder Clark Blake how he finds these
rare species, like the snowy egret in the background, and he said, "Well,
it's like baseball - when you're hot,. you're hot!"

This image was made at about 2:30 p.m. on a rising tide at the Blaine boat
launch; first exit southbound or last exit northbound on I-5, turn left and
proceed down Marine drive onto the "spit," then take the first left just
beyond the marina.

I'd run into Blake earlier and I swear this part is true: he said "Let's go
see the egret," as positive that it would be there as if he were at the
zoo. We drove up, got out, set up and then he stretched as it flew into
view and landed 50 feet in front of us in the mud. "OK, now, note the
yellow feet....." We waited 30 to 35 seconds, no more.

The file is pretty big, 700+ k or so.

Hi Tweets - Yesterday at Marymoor seven of us met under a layer of fog (whi=
ch
eventually burned off) for our weekly walk. The fall movements of birds ar=
e
picking up, and there should be a good mix of species over the next couple =
of
months. Yesterday was no exception, with several interesting birds coming
through:

Green Heron Two, noticably different plumages
Canada Goose Over 100, including at least 1 Cackling
Osprey Two
Common Snipe One flew past the weir early on
Warbling Vireo At first footbridge
Swainson's Thrush Many, quite probably moving through
Bl.-throated Gray Wblr 3, I think
Wilson's Warbler At least a couple
Wh.-crowned Sparrow Juveniles at compost piles
Western Tanager Two or more east of the weir

There were many flycatchers, but all appeared to be Willow.

After last week's hundreds of swifts, yesterday was quite a change, with on=
ly 2
Vaux's Swift over the Rowing Club ponds.

We also had a couple of mammals - a RACOON apparently fishing for crayfish
opposite the lake platform. Also, a DEER next to the path at the Rowing Cl=

The juvenile COMMON GREENSHANK was observed along the Mud River west of
McKinleyville on the 29th of August, and on the morning of the 30th of
August. The bird was observed all day on the 29th from 8am-6:30pm, along
with photographes taken as close as 25 feet at two locations west of the Ma=
d
River boat launch, but the bird was NEVER seen any farther upstream along
the river, as noted briefly on the morning of the 28th, where it was
probably seen at this location by merely accident. The bird was noted on th=
e
29th from the west end of School Rd. along the Mud River, then later by 10a=
m
was found further west along the river foraging loosely with Greater and
Lesser Yellowlegs from the Hammond trail, accessed from the end of Ocean
Ave. The bird remained at this location for quite some time, but soon flew
upstream along the river with both species of yellowlegs, and was again
noted and photographed from the west end of School Rd., and from the west
side of the Mud River accessible from the boat launch, then walking west
along the river. The bird continued within this area throughout the
remainder of the day until it was noted in the evening from the Hammond
trail location until 6:30pm. On the morning of 30th the bird was noted at
the Hammond trail location until after 9:30am, where it probably remained.

During all observations the bird was immediately seperated from Greater
Yellowlegs by showing much paler underparts(including flanks and sides),
browner back with buffy fringes, a slight faint buffy wash on the upper
sides of the breast, thicker-based, noticeable slightly upcurved bill,
greenish legs, that appeared darker at a distance. The white supercillium
was also very noticeable, as well as the entire area around the bill and ey=
e
being white. While foraging the bird seemed to show a noticebale crop of
gathered food in it's throat, which was clearly visible during all
observations. In flight, the bird clearly showed the white on the rump
extending well onto the back, as it narrowed out. A special thanks go to Ke=
n
Irwin who found this rare vagrant what should be now leaving to south
Asia.What a good find this was!!!!!!

For anyone interested in having a good old-fashioned race to the bookstore
<grin>, I thought I would share this update:

There will be a new flurry of publicity in October when Sibley's second boo=
k
is released. "The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior" will contain 786
bird paintings by the artist and 44 essays by various ornithologists and bi=
rd
experts. The publisher calls this the most complete guide to the lives and
behavior of the 80 bird families found in North America. It will offer
authoritative information about bird biology, life cycles, courtship, nest
life cycles, migration feeding and more. The book will contain 608 pages.

Hello Tweets,

My mother and I drove the 11 hour drive on the 28th of August from Tacoma t=
o
McKinleyville,California in search of the the COMMON GREENSHANK, which is
the first comfirmed record for the lower 48 states. The bird was originally
found by Ken Irwin, who has found other 1st Humboldt Co. records, including
a recent nesting record of Northern Parula, and a single White-eyed Vireo,
among others. After the bird had been relocated on the morning of the 28th,
we got our supplies organized and drove 10 hours to Orick,CA where we slept
overnight then continued on the next morning of the 29th to several
locations along the Mad River, where we located the Commom Greenshank for
other birders, including most from California, with a few from Oregon durin=
g
our entire stay to the morning of the 30th. The bird was first located on
the 29th at 8am at the end of School Rd., which views the Mad River below
aloowing great scoping views in several directions. The bird later flew to
another further downstream to an accessible location from the Hammond Trail=
,
accessed from Ocean Ave., where the bird remained for about 30 minutes
before flying back upstream and onto the other side of the river. We
travelled to the Mad River boat launch, where several other birders joined
us as we walked a trail to the river through dense stands of decidious
growth until we relocated and photographed the bird within a close range of
20-25 feet. The bird remained in this general vicinity throughout the day a=
s
a few additional birders showed up until 6:30pm. We viewed the bird on the
morning of the 30th from 8am-9:30am, along with a few birders until we left
and headed towards home.

We managed to talk with several enthusiastic and friendly birders from both
Oregon and California, with several being local, and eager to show us a few
other local birding areas with in this diverse region, which we managed to
take a few hours to visit near Arcata on the 29th. We appeared to be the
only WA birders as of our visit, but perhaps others will follow. Many
birders did however spend considerable time looking carefully over the
Greater and Lesser Yellowleg flocks along the Mad River, but once the "true=
"
Common Greenshank was found there would be No question to it's identity wit=
h
major differences from Greater Yellowlegs. If the bird remains more birders
will come, especailly with the Labor Day weekend approaching, but since it
it actively feeding storing food in it's visible crop this bird could take
off at any moment. The weather during our stay was fairly cool, with locall=
y
dense fog during the early to mid-morning, then thickening up late in the
day, with mostly cloudy skies throughout the remainder of the day, and
partial winds at times, where conditions are expected to remain for
sometime. Extensive scenery is well noted along the Redwood Highway to the
Oregon border, making the curvy drive along Hwy.101 much more pleasant, bu=
t
some moderate construction along Hwy.199 from Crescent City-Grants Pass on
the 28th and on the 30th was the only major holdup.

During our visit to the McKinleyville-Arcata region we noted a few notable
highlights, including shorebirds with the following list as follows for:

numerous Brown Pelicans, Great Egrets, and Heermann's Gulls at most
locations
Snowy Egrets(Arcata Marsh)
Black-crowned Night Heron
White-tailed Kite
Red-shouldered Hawk
Semipalmated Plover
Black-bellied Plover
Am.Avocet
Willet
Wandering Tattler(including two along the Mad River, being somewhat away
from immediate more coastal locations)
Whimbrel
Long-billed Curlew
Marbled Godwit
Surfbird(12 at the North Jetty at Humboldt Bay)
Sanderling
Western Sandpiper
Least Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper(1 along the Mad River on the 29th)
Short-billed Dowitcher
Red-necked Phalarope
Elegant Tern(45-50 at Humboldt Bay/North Jetty)
Barn Owl
Costa's Hummingbird(1 pair at the Mad River boat launch)
Anna's Hummingbird
Black Phoebe
Wrentit
Lesser Goldfinch

On our way home we stopped at Crescent City with improving conditions on th=
e
30th, as we noted a few additional highlights:

12 Black Oystercatchers
1 Whimbrel
15 Surfbirds
3 Black Turnstones
17 Red-necked Phalaropes
1 Black-legged Kittiwake
6 Elegant Terns
1 Forster's Tern


A very rewarding trip not only for the Common Greenshank, but for the
general area.

Columbia Estuary Report - 8/31/2001

A CHIPPING SPARROW was with OREGON JUNCOS at parking lot "D"
of Ft Stevens State Park this morning. There was also a pretty
go little migrant flock of ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS there.

A big flock of SOOTY SHEARWATERS could be seen from the viewing
platform of parking lot "C".

The AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER is still at Wireless Rd this morning,
though on the mudflats at the inlet to the tidegate rather than
in the scrape.

A hatch-year HERMIT WARBLER was with BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLERS,
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS and BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS on Coxcomb Hill
yesterday morning.

It is remarkable what turns up in CA. Common Greenshank is not common as a
migrant in Kamchatka and northward, and literature suggests it is rare on
Sakhalin and the Kuriles, I found it to be just uncommon. On the Russian
Far East mainland south it is more numerous, about equivalent to Greater
Yellowlegs here in wWA during Aug-Sept. The sand plover found earlier this
year in CA was even more impressive, given that that species is unknown fro=
m
the Russian Far East, except as a rare migrant in southern areas, almost
wholly on the mainland side.

Ian and Tweeters,

Ken and Laurie Knittle's recently-published compilation, "Birds in
Washington State: A County Comparison" lists Mute Swans as introduced,
and presumably established, in Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Pacific,
Pierce, San Juan, Whatcom, and Yakima Counties. Presumably this
reflects the opinion of local birders in most or all of those areas.

In British Columbia, feral Mute Swans are slowly spreading. They have
been established on southern Vancouver Island since at least the
1960s, with a population of between 100 and 200 birds, although
numbers may have declined recently.

In the Vancouver area of B.C., we considered for many years that all
Mute Swans seen were escapees, and kept them off the local check-list.
However, within the last 5 years or so, Mute Swans have become solidly
established in the Pitt Meadows area east of Vancouver. There is a
feral population of at least 20 birds there, and they have been
nesting for several years. In addition, there have been a few Mute
Swans for years in the Canoe Pass area of Delta (near the bridge to
Westham Island and the Reifel Bird Sanctuary), although I don't know
of any definite evidence of them nesting in this area.

I hope this helps to answer Ian's question. If Mute Swans are not
solidly established in western Washington, they probably will be soon!

Ian and Tweeters,

To my knowledge, the "Pink-sided" Junco (Junco hyemalis mearnsi) has
never been reported from B.C. It breeds from the Cypress Hills of SE
Alberta and SW Saskatchewan south through parts of Montana and Idaho
to northwestern Wyoming, and isn't really expected in B.C.

However, there is one record of the "Gray-headed" Junco (Junco
hyemalis caniceps) in B.C.; one seen and photographed near Qualicum,
B.C., on Vancouver Island, November 9, 1975. Details of this were
published by Neil Dawe in a note in the Canadian Field-Naturalist in
1976. This form is even less expected in B.C. than the Pink-sided.

I hope this helps to answer Ian's question.

Dear Tweets,

This is a reminder for subscribers of some Tweeters posting rules you may
not have seen for a while.

NO ATTACHED FORMATTED FILES:

Please do not to attach formatted files to messages posted to Tweeters as
the 235 subscribers in the digest mode will just receive a number of pages
of ASCII characters. These also appear that way in our archives.

A formatted file could be a graphic such as a GIF for JPEG file, a Word
=2Edoc or even an HTML file.

However, feel free to advertise such a file to the list , and then send it
privately to those who might request it.

An alternate solution for a graphic file is to put it on the Web and point
to it's URL on Tweeters. (If you can't put it on the Web you could send
it to me and I could put it up for you.)

An alternate solution for a Word document would be to convert the
*.doc file to a "text only file" and then post it.

If you are mailing from a Web browser or using M/S Outlook Express, be
sure your message is converted to "Plain Text" before posting.

SIGNATURE BLOCKS:

Please SIGN your messages within the text of the message giving your name,
geographic location, and email address. Several email programs strip the
headers so that one *cannot* tell where the message is coming from.
Also, it is interesting to see the geographic areas from which messages
are posted. Your emailer may have a signature feature you could use or
perhaps you could import or paste in a signature file at the end of your
message.

Examples:

Dickie Birder, Pond, WA <mailto:dickie at pond.com>

or perhaps:

Birdie Lister
Broadbay, BC
mailto:blister at wetlands.net.ca

Thanks your cooperation on this,

To any of you in the Puget Sound area who are planning
to do some birding on Tuesday Sept. 4th, I have a rare
weekday off that day and would love to tag along,
share gas, add an extra pair of eyes, etc. If you have
room and the tolerance for a fairly novice birder, I
can meet you just about anywhere. Drop me an e-mail
at rnbuffle at yahoo.com
And THANKS!

You might think that scuba diving and birding could go hand in hand. While
waiting before or between dives I have taken the opportunity to do alittle,

Easter something caught my attention. Out of the corner of my eye was a dar=

as I turned to investigate, with video camera in hand, I saw a Cormorant,

10 seconds of good video on this silly bird. If this is common I've never
seen it before and feel quite lucky to be able to have captured this on
video. You never know what your going to see underwater!

Jackpot at the W-90 ponds this evening, 6.00-7.15pm:

1 buff-breasted sandpiper
15 pectoral sandpipers
2 red-necked phalaropes
4 greater yellowlegs
1 lesser yellowlegs
17 short-billed dowitchers.

Very few birds on the ponds. The buff-breasted sand was flying around
the area calling. It did not land at any time. The pectorals were
roosting on the weed piled up at the base of the dyke opposite the
third and fourth ponds. The phalaropes were feeding in a nearby
drainage ditch at the base of the dyke.

There was 1 american kestrel on D'Arcy Road.

Jensen Access, Fir Island: 1 red-necked phalarope, 1 Baird's sandpiper
and 420 common mergansers.
Keystone to Port Townsend Ferry: 9 red-necked phalaropes, 4 marbled
murrelets, 8 common terns.
Crockett Lake: 1 american golden plover, 1 red-necked phalarope, 6
Baird's sandpipers, 2 mourning doves.
Elsewhere on Whidbey: 1 american kestrel, 1 western tanager, 1 pectoral
sandpiper.
Mukilteo - Clinton Ferry : 43 Heerman's gulls.


That's all the exciting stuff.
