I banded 3 male Calliopes today, several Rufous, and a bunch of Broadtailed.  At the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, near Crested Butte, CO.

I know I’m watching too much tv, but at least Oregon Field Guide isn’t political. Tonight one of the 3 stories was an effort to restore Burrowing Owls on the deactivated Umatilla chemical weapons storage facility. I think the program repeats on IPTV during the week. Burrowing Owls are not birds that I see very often (and they were way cute).

Re: Dry Lake

Dry Lake is south of Nampa.  

Head south on Hwy 45 to to Missouri. Turn right. Turn left on Dry Lake.  Continue to Stagecoach and turn right.  You will see the water on the south side of the road.

Could someone tell me where Dry Lake is located and possibly how to get there? I'm thinking I might have to go and check it out next weekend. Thanks so much for the help!

The pond sits north south.  We were out there about 9 am and had good light.

Oh wow! There is that much water? And up to the road? Strikes me as being a long time since there was water like that in the playa. I've not been there since the place was closed down to birders. Will have to take a little trip over.

Oops! Accidentally deleted the wrong message that I wanted to reply to, so this will have to do.
The fields that drain into Dry Lakes, the big playa part, used to have much water in them as soon as the irrigation season started. Reason being that the irrigation was regular old fashioned pipe-into-furrow, so there was much run-off. I believe the playa was put in so the farmer could recycle the water he was losing, hence the pump pond.
The place started drying up when the local farmer converted to sprinkler. More efficient, also much less run off. He may be into a high water necessary crop this year making for more water in the playa.
My incoherently worded thoughts.
Those are super photos. Would not have expected such quality from a, as you say, point-and-shoot.

Re: Day lake

In previous years that area is dry during the summer; there isn’t water except for the spring rains and then again when it rains in the fall.  I don’t know why there is water now.  Possibly irrigation water?

Golden Eagle Audubon’s Advocacy Committee has been working on an ordinance for Boise to require bird-friendly glass on new public buildings. Not sure what the status is since coronavirus issues and dealing with protests and counter protests seem to be sucking much of the air out of the room.  Our goal is to work on getting such ordinances adopted across the Treasure Valley. Takes more time than anyone would like however.

Hi Denise,

So they're no longer allowing birders to drive in? Do you know why that changed?

I just want to remind folks that there are no trespassing signs posted at Dry Lakes for both the irrigation pond and large flat area to the east of the pond.  It is almost impossible to see the irrigation pond from the public road due to the corn field that is between the road and pond. But the large area has the amount of water right now and shorebirds are present.  That whole area can be viewed from the public road though a scope is necessary to get a good look at the birds farthest from the road.

Please stay on the public roads only when birding the area.  The no trespassing signs are quite visible
