Continued Birding In Sedgwick County

May 28, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcript of telephone call:

The CoBus group did a little birding between weather fronts today.

They once again searched Julesburg for the Eastern Wood-Pewee reported a few days ago.  Again, their search came up empty.  The Northern Cardinal northwest of 5th Street and Spruce Street was relocated behind the homes.  The Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the Julesburg Elementary School was not relocated.

Their birding today was centered around Jumbo Reservoir and Red Lion Wildlife Area in Logan County.  While watching a White-rumped Sandpiper at Wildlife Area they noticed an Upland Sandpiper walking in the field 60+ yards to the west.

Walking the riparian area at Little Jumbo Reservoir added to their day list:
Bell's Vireo
Black-throated Green Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Nashville Warbler
Spotted Towhee
Barn Owl
Eastern White-breasted Nuthatch
Eastern Hairy Woodpecker
Pine Siskins

The northern side of Jumbo Reservoir added a colorful Blue-headed Vireo.  Four White-rumped Sandpipers and two Red-necked Phalaropes were seen from the south side of Jumbo.  The Campgrounds had no uncommon birds.

In the late afternoon, they searched unsuccessfully for the Eastern Meadowlark found yesterday along Sedgwick County Road 32.5.

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird was not seen for the second day on the Danka Ranch.
