Mark Lockwood and Brush Freeman's The TOS Handbook of Texas Birds is the
2nd ed of Texas bird records.

Northern Goshawk A.g. atricapilus subspecies is a rare winter visitor to
the Trans-Pecos (Big Bend) and Panhandle of Texas with a few scattered
records across the northern 2/3rds of Texas.

The Review List developed in 1988 has only 24 documented records, only 8
with photos. 26 submissions were unacceptable. 64 records without
documentation before the list started in 1988.

My appreciation to Gary Bletsch for reaching out and guiding this visitor
from Texas to the Skagit - Fir Island area four years ago on a Bar-tailed
Godwit day!

Hi Tweets:
On my quick walk this morning between rains, I went up to 18th Ave which
has some small fields; and heard 2 singing Orange-crowned Warblers.
FOYear Orange-crown singing for me.
2 days ago, the Golden-crowned sparrows were singing their mournful Oh,
Dear Me songs.
Yours, Carol Schulz

We have what appears to be a possible "White-winged' Dark-eyed Junco at
our feeders in Skamania County. It is an pale gray bird with a dark mask,
large bill and a considerable amount of white in the tail along with white
wing-bars. I have posted photos on several facebook sites including
Washington Birding, Western Washington Birders and Advanced Bird ID and
would appreciate any feedback on this bird. Wilson Cady

Tweeters,

This week’s post will introduce you to a new set of bald eagles who are now
nesting on Union Bay. I suspect it is their very first nest and clearly a
new territory. I also find it interesting to consider how the existing
eagle pairs are adapting, particularly, the Talarus pair. They have lost
part of their summer territory to Chester and Lacey - the new osprey who
moved in two years ago. Now, they appear to have lost all the area south of
Husky Stadium to this new eagle pair. It makes me wonder what is the
minimum territory they need to survive? Are these additional nesting birds
long-term examples of the recovery from DDT? If we can clean up the water
in Union Bay will more fish survive and therefore further increase the
avian, fish-eating carrying capacity?

I hope you enjoy the post:

Have a great day on Union Bay, where eagles nest in the city!

Dear birders and hawk watchers and there is a world of difference. Look
who’s back. Did you see movie or book. But that is another subject. I have
recently started a blog, Common Northern Goshawk,
www.goshawktalker.blogspot.com. And have a post— On Gary Bletsch. In
concert with Gary’s fine field-work— I will gift a publication to Gary.

A Lane/ABA birdfinding guide. A Birder’s Guide To The Texas Coast, by
Harold R. Holt,1993. However in the index was no mention of goshawks. Under
Accidentals— is goshawk. Gary can also contact me — 360 420 9320.

Since the publication was 1993,— I think— I can understand the omission of
goshawk in the index.

In the past, I have roasted some birders. I am not proud of my actions or
happy about it. If you wish to castigate me, well then, cast away.
I will not retaliate.

The best to all of you, Nelson- Anacortes.

We always enjoyed Jeff’s emails, but we haven’t seen any in quite awhile.
He was having some health issues. Has anyone heard from him?

We have a couple of active jay pairs in the neighborhood. Recently my wife
watched one land in a Japanese maple a grab one of the snails climbing
along a branch.

Hi tweets,

I saw a recent eBird report of Northern Bobwhite on Orcas Island, and
wanted to share some information about their status there. About two years
ago, a non-birding friend who lives on the island sent me an audio
recording of a Bobwhite that he had been hearing at his property near West
Sound. Since then, I've learned that someone in the Crow Valley area was
raising captive Bobwhite, and I believe had a substantial number of them
escape some time in the last few years. This doesn't necessarily mean that
any Bobwhite on the island came from that location, but it does provide a
possible explanation for their origin.

Bobwhite were formerly established in the San Juan Islands after being
released there, but I believe there was a long gap between the last records
of that established population, and the few recent reports in the last
couple years.

Good birding,
Matt Dufort

As of the time of this post Matt Bartels and I have 7 Mountain Bluebird at
Pacific Rim Institute next to the staff buildings. No sign of Western
Bluebird (yet).
