Logan/Sedgwick Counties

November 3, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcript of telephone call:

Richard Stevens and Bryan Ehlmann went searching for the Vermilion Flycatcher reported on 11/2 at Red Lion Wildlife Area by Coyle, Logan County.  They were not able to find it.

A flock of gulls flying over the northeast corner of Jumbo Reservoir included a Mew Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, and Bonaparte's Gulls, Sedgwick County.  The gulls were last seen flying toward Little Jumbo Reservoir.  A Black-bellied Plover walked the private shore south of the eastern Campgrounds, Sedgwick County.

On the reservoir, they found a Greater Scaup and Surf Scoter, Logan/Sedgwick Counties.

Late in the afternoon, they drove Logan County Road 93 without finding any Greater Prairie-Chickens.  The last hour of daylight, they walked the southern section of Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area, north of Sedgwick County Roads 86 & 46.  A Short-eared Owl was seen flying below the hill toward I76.

After dark, an Eastern Screech-Owl called back near Eastern Sections 6-7, north of Highway 76.
