June 6, 2020 eBird Top Audio in the World includes Boise birder's Warbling Vireo recording

Jim Lyons
 

My long-time friend and birding buddy for nearly 40 years, Scott Tuthill, has a recording in the "World Top Five" eBird audio selections.

Pretty cool for Scott, who only recently has taken on bird recording with a passion! He's a frequent IBLE contributor but probably to modest to share this himself.

I am attaching a screenshot for those of you not able to see the version (for that, super-simple - just scroll down from the eBird home page, https://ebird.org/home )

VERY windy today would be very difficult to locate if it is even around.

Re: 2 Arrivals

Larry Arnold
 


Brian,

That Rose-breasted phenom of yours is intriguing !! we've chased several in Idaho, missed every time, have since given up on them for our Idaho list. 
We had one at our feeders during 15 years in W Colorado, I think for two days

I'm always curious about range expansion, like possibly yours and others' Blue Jays?
There have been several range-expansion happenings in W Colorado over the last 20-25 yrs that include Black Phoebe, Lucy's Warbler, WW Dove, Lesser Nighthawk, and EC Dove of course....
Hereabouts (Treasure Valley), Bewick's Wren has thrown down an anchor just since we moved here 8 yrs ago, and Mute Swans and EC Doves are as well now established as residents 
WW Dove appears wanting to be here too, but at a slower pace of arrival

I remember like it was yesterday when Terry Gray showed me the first known EC Doves in Latah County, maybe these by Kas in 2007 ?   https://ebird.org/checklist/S31324189
This looks like the location where he took me so many yrs ago...

Sincere thanks for your informative posts on IBLE, Brian, always....

Larry


My "new normal" appears to be "sleepless in Boise" that I could ( should? ) blame on our  WS Owls  ;-)

Subject: [IBLE] 2 Arrivals

Two foy arrivals today. An adult male Rose-breasted Grosbeak came into the feeder & cracked sunflower seeds for nearly 10 min. Haven't pulled my records yet, but first arrival of a Rose-breasted was 3-4 yrs ago & at least one has arrived every spring since. Believe the Blue Jay is fully gone now, last sighting was about a week ago. 

The other arrival was a Common Nighthawk that flew over while calling. Always enjoy their call. Finally, a female Am Kestrel was hovering over our west side pasture & suddenly went into a dive, disappearing into tall grass. Only to appear & fly off with a vole in its talons.
