January 23 — Jacque Lowery — Feeding Your Neighborhood Birds Get your backyard ready for the annual Great Backyard Bird Count in February! Jacque Lowery, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited, will be preaching to the choir with a presentation on winter bird feeding. Learn the four elements needed to provide a backyard refuge for birds and other wildlife. Do you have nuisance birds monopolizing your feeders? Jacque will showcase feeders and suggestions to deter pigeons and squirrels. Sure, we don’t have cardinals, titmice or other common eastern backyard birds, but by offering a variety of food and feeding stations, you can attract the widest variety of birds for our area. See how different feeding options can increase your enjoyment of the wild birds in your yard. In place of a “Learn-a-Bird” session prior to our featured program at the January 23 General Meeting, Kenn Rohrs (849-9530, karohrs@charter.net) will moderate a discussion about the variety of periodicals available for birders. Please bring sample copies of any publications, e.g. Birder’s World, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Living Bird, Birding, etc. and your thoughts to share that evening. February 27 — Mike Yates — Three Decades of Arctic Peregrine Studies Raptor biologist and LAS member Mike Yates will talk about his research with arctic peregrines in Greenland, Russia, Alaska, and on the East and Gulf coasts. The work has included population monitoring and banding, estimation of nest site fidelity and mortality, development and application of satellite-received telemetry, and sampling for collaborative studies on genetics, determination of natal origin, contaminant loading, and detection of exposure to emerging infectious diseases.”

FIELD TRIPS
Christiane Omer
Field trips are free to Audubon members and non-members. Birders of all skills levels are encouraged to participate. Trips are subject to change or cancellation, so we strongly encourage all interested participants to preregister with field trip leaders. Pre-registration provides leaders with an idea of the number of participants to expect and contact information so the leaders can reach you in the event of trip changes or cancellations. Remember to dress for the weather and bring something to eat and drink. For information on field trips added after this publication please view the Lahontan Audubon Society web site at www. nevadaaudubong.org. Saturday, January 13, 2007 (Alternate bad weather day: Saturday, January 27) Annual Dipper Day: Reno, Truckee River, Donner Lake Time: 8 a.m. Place: Rancho San Rafael in front of May Arboretum Contact: Christiane Omer, happycpo@aol. com, 775-354-2634 This trip offers a unique opportunity to hear and observe the elusive but vocal American Dipper. You will be introduced to a bird species specialized in living a semi-aquatic life in swift mountain streams and rivers. From its nictitating membrane (third eyelid), large oil glands, dense plumage and unique underwater foraging techniques, this bird species is truly a “water ouzel.” The trip will also offer the opportunity to observe other bird species residing along the Truckee River corridor. Please be prepared for snow (boots, jackets, gloves, etc.) and bring a bag lunch, or money

775-354-2634 happycpo@aol.com
to buy lunch as we will wind up at Donner if time permits. Saturday, January 20, 2007 Taylor Creek and Cove East, South Lake Tahoe Time: 10:30 a.m. Place: Parking lot of the Beacon Restaurant at Camp Richardson Trip Leaders: Sue Stevenson, sssfromslt@sbcglobal.net, 530-577-5394 and Sheryl Ferguson, s-sferguson@sbcglobal.net, 530-541-8462 Join us for an “unpredictable” winter adventure of snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Meet at the at 10:30 a.m. The plan is to bird along the Lake and along Taylor Creek in the morning and see if we can find the local winter flocks and woodpeckers, plus a few “big bonus birds” if they’re around. We break for lunch at the Beacon (soups, salads, appetizers available) and then head out to Cove East in the Tahoe Keys if anyone wants to continue birding after lunch. Bring your warm clothes; it can get very cold and windy! Directions: From Carson City, take Route 50 West over Spooner Summit to South Lake Tahoe. Travel past the casinos and the lake until you reach the “Y” (Intersection of SR 50) and Emerald Bay Rd. (SR 89 North). Turn right onto Emerald Bay Rd. and drive about 2.5 miles to Camp Richardson. Turn right at the lodge and proceed down to the lake to the Beacon Restaurant. Call if you need to know about rental equipment in Tahoe. Please call or email Sue to confirm, so she can reach you if the trip is cancelled due to inclement weather. Saturday, February 3, 2007 The Great Reno Caper Time: 9 a.m. Place: North end of Virginia Lake Trip Leader: Dennis Serdehely, 775-5750319 or birders@gbis.com Back by popular demand...The Great Reno Caper!

2007 GREAT BACKYARD BIRDCOUNT
Good Fun, Good Science
What mid-winter activity is fun, easy, free, and helps bird conservation? What can parents and teachers do with children that connects them to a whole new world of natural wonders? This February, the tenth annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, will give everyone a chance to discover the birds in their neighborhood and “Count for the Record.” “Before the count, I never bothered to tell one sparrow from the next,” said Lori Bailey, a GBBC participant from La Crosse, Wisconsin. “But I took a picture of something taking shelter in a tree, enlarged it in Photoshop, and was actually able to tell what kind of sparrow it was. It was kind of fun playing detective. In short, the bird count had adventure, mystery, and the unexpected.” During February 16–19, 2007, people of all ages, from beginners to experts, are invited to join this event which spans all of the United States and Canada. Participants can take part wherever they are – at home, in schoolyards, at local parks or wildlife refuges. Observers simply count the highest number of each species they see during an outing or a sitting, and enter their tally on the Great Backyard Bird Count web site at www. birdsource.org/gbbc. Visitors to the web site can also compare their sightings with results from other participants, as checklists pour in from throughout the U.S. and Canada. Together, these counts offer a real-time snapshot of the numbers and kinds of birds that people are finding, from Boreal Chickadees in Alaska to American Dippers in Nevada. “The Great Backyard Bird Count is a community celebration of birds, birding, and nature,” said Janis Dickinson, director of Citizen Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. “We often fail to notice how rich our surroundings are, but counting birds, even for just 15 minutes, is not only educational—it can provide a lasting source of enjoyment, turning a daily walk into a treasure hunt.” “We are encouraging people to go outside and count birds for the first time this year,” said Paul Green, Audubon’s director of Citizen Science. “By submitting their counts online, birdwatchers can quickly see how the dots they put on the map form new patterns that tell new stories about the birds that share the world in which we live, including our own backyards and parks.” This year marks the tenth anniversary of the GBBC, and Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are challenging people everywhere to “Count for the Record,” by participating in greater numbers than ever before. Greater participation, with more checklists submitted, provides more information about bird population trends – and helps to better inform conservation efforts. Last year, participants submitted more than 60,000 checklists – and reported 7.5 million birds overall and 623 different species. The count helped chronicle the early spring migratory routes of Sandhill Cranes, documented lingering migrants such as Orangecrowned Warblers and Tree Swallows, revealed the ongoing range expansion of introduced Eurasian Collared-Doves, and recorded declining numbers of American Crows. Participants who want to hone their bird watching skills can learn more from the Great Backyard Bird Count web site, which offers identification tips and access to photos, sounds, maps, and natural history information on more than 500 bird species. People can also submit photos to an online gallery showcasing the dazzling array of winter birds found during the GBBC. Competitions add another element of fun, including a photo contest, rankings for most numerous birds, and the coveted “checklist champ” title for towns, states, and provinces with the highest participation. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a free event, sponsored in part by Wild Birds Unlimited. Contributed by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society.

FROM THE PRESIDENTʼS PERCH
Busy, Busy, Busy
Happy 2007 to all. I don’t know about you, but I feel as if we’ve been awfully busy. In a way, the “new year” for the LAS Board of Trustees and various committees begins with our July 1 fiscal year and really kicks in once September arrives. Let me share with you a bit of the blur of activity. First, many of you are aware that very active LAS members Jim and Marsha Lytle have just moved out of the area to a place called Oregon. Marsha was involved in the Education Committee and various outreach activities including developing the LAS display board and “Positive Presence” scrapbook. Jim was involved in so many LAS and birding activities, including LAS Board Trustee and Spring Wings President, that I cannot yield the entire column to the list of his contributions. Marsha and Jim will be missed. A heartening aspect of organizational change is the way other folks step up to help. In the wake of Jim’s departure, several new appointments have ensued. Ali Chaney has resumed the Conservation Chair and has represented LAS’s position in conservation matters including Kiley Ranch wetlands, land management of Porter Springs, oversight of our pending effort to protect key area in the Carson River Delta IBA, and contributing to re-seeding efforts in the Mary’s River IBA. Steve Ting is our new Web Master. Many of you know Steve from his recent presentation at our October General Meeting and from his postings with photo links to the Nevada Birds List Server. Steve is remodeling our web site to a cleaner and more professional format also designed to facilitate improved navigation. Jacque Lowery has taken over management of the LAS Info Line, a task quite compatible with her passion for backyard birding. In addition to these changes, Christiane Omer has become our new Field Trip Chair. Many of you have met Christiane at General Meetings or on field trips. She, along with member Nancy Hoffman, has been conducting regular bird surveys at the Kiley Ranch wetlands. Alan Wallace is now the moderator for the Nevada Birds List Server, a nice fit with his coordination of Birds in Town. Jacque Lowery and Jane Burnham conducted the annual internal audit of our financial records. Roaming birders Carol and Ron Conkey light in Nevada periodically. Most recently, Ron dove into overseeing revision and republication of the Nevada Birding Map. Ron also continued his work on posting additional species photos to the Birding Guide section of the web site. Alan Gubanich and I have worked through a detailed revision of the Birding Guide to Reno and Beyond with field assistance from a number of people. The IBA Director search committee, Alan Gubanich, Don McIvor, Larry Neel, Kenn Rohrs, and Bonnie Wagner, are well along in this important project. Nancy Santos (formerly Bish), who is President of Friends of Silver Saddle Ranch, has been addressing issues involving the future ownership, use, and management of 860-acre Silver Saddle Ranch. There is not sufficient space to mention many others who advance the mission of this organization. Yes, LAS has been busy. We have also been having a good deal of fun while enjoying a sense of making a contribution. – Karen L. Kish

Field Trip Report

Sierra Valley, November 11 Co-leaders: Alan Gubanich and Ali Chaney

Birds and Books Reading Group
The LAS Birds & Books reading group meets Thursday, Jan. 11, and Thursday, Feb. 8, 7-8:30 p.m. at Sundance Bookstore, 1155 W. 4th St., in the Keystone Square Shopping center. For more information, check the LAS web site at www. nevadaaudobo.org or contact Ken Rohrs at 775-849-9530. or karohrs@charter.net.

Who would have thought? At 6:30 a.m. the wind was howling and the sky was threatening, yet 15 hardy souls showed up to look for raptors in Sierra Valley. Much to our surprise, while the stay-at-homes (at least 12 people canceled) continued to endure howling winds, rain and eventually snow in Reno, we intrepid adventurers enjoyed a marvelous day with no wind, mild temperatures and no rain in a valley that is usually famous for all three. The birding was superb, especially for raptors. Before we had traveled a mile out of Vinton on Hwy 49, we found a field with at least 12 Ferruginous Hawks, with one adult so close to the road that Doug Canham was able to get wonderful photos. As we continued on, Ferruginous Hawks seemed to be the most common raptor of the day. We counted at least 18 before the day was over. Other hawks were also present -- 10 Roughleggeds, 15 Red-tails, 4 American Kestrels, 2 adult Bald Eagles, 1 Prairie Falcon, and 8 Northern Harriers. Along Heriot Lane we found 10 Tundra Swans and fair numbers of Northern Pintail, American Coot, American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler, Gadwall, Mallard, and Pied-billed Grebe. A small flock of goose-like birds flew south in front of the distant mountains, but were too far away to identify, although several of us felt strongly that they were Snow Geese. Other species seen included Western Meadowlark, Killdeer, Willet, Greater Yellowlegs, Great Blue Heron, Loggerhead Shrike, Ring-necked Duck, and of course the usual assortment of Common Ravens, Brewer’s Blackbirds, California Quail, Black-billed Magpies and European Starlings. In all, a total of 28 species, not bad for a day that started out with incredibly ominous weather in Reno but incredibly favorable weather 30miles to the northwest.

LAS Board Meetings

LAS Board meetings are open to LAS members. The group meets the first Tuesday of the month, September through June from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with social and refreshments at 6 p.m. If you would like to attend, please contact any of the officers and trustees listed on page 8 for details.

CONSERVATION CORNER
The Stamp of Conservation
Dave Mehlman has been buying duck stamps for 20 years. He keeps the collection in a box and keeps the current year’s stamp handy for when he goes to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, 90 minutes south of his home near Albuquerque, New Mexico. His stamp gains him free admission. But Mehlman, who directs the Conservancy’s migratory-bird program, isn’t a duck hunter. When he goes to the refuge, he’s carrying binoculars, not a shotgun. So why the duck stamp? “Because the funds go directly to acquiring new National Wildlife Refuges or adding to existing ones, and some of those are the top birding places in the country,” he says. (Only some charge admission.) In fact, money from the duck-stamp program helped pay for the creation of Bosque del Apache, an internationally famous birding destination. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees the National Wildlife Refuge system, many of the country’s most popular birding spots are refuges, such as Blackwater in Maryland and Cat Island in Louisiana, funded in part by federal duck-stamp dollars. Fish and Wildlife estimates that refuges annually receive more than 40 million visitors, almost 80 percent of them birders. “If you’re a birder, you need birds, and you need access, and this program provides both,” says Paul Schmidt, an assistant director for migratory birds at Fish and Wildlife. Duck stamps, now officially known as Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps, were created in 1934 in an effort to boost waterfowl populations, which had been decimated by overharvesting and habitat destruction. The stamps have paid off, with growth in the refuge system and in waterfowl populations. But over the years, duck-stamp sales have slumped, and the price of bird habitat has skyrocketed. Meanwhile, the cost of duck stamps has remained steady at $15. Says Schmidt: “Our buying power has gone down. We’re buying less and less and preserving less and less.” The Conservancy and others, including Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever, are supporting legislation to turn that situation around. The legislation essentially replicates an earlier law under which Congress gave Fish and Wildlife a $200 million loan to protect wetlands, with the understanding that the loan would be repaid with future sales of duck stamps. (Congress ultimately forgave the loan.) Under the proposed law, Congress would advance $400 million over 10 years—to be repaid by duck-stamp revenue. Part of the strategy is to get nonhunters to buy the stamps. Says Scott Sutherland of Ducks Unlimited, “Anyone who cares about wild places and spaces should care about this program.”

BIRDS IN TOWN
by Alan Wallace
As winter stretched its tentacles into northern Nevada, food sources became the hubs of avian activity in and near towns. Feeders, as usual, saw a rise in numbers and species, with the common California Quail, Mourning Doves, American and Lesser Goldfinches (lots of both), Dark-eyed Juncos, and White-crowned Sparrows joined by Downy Woodpeckers, Mountain Chickadees, Western Scrub-Jays, Steller’s Jays, and American Robins. Yard location dictated the species: White-headed Woodpeckers, Clark’s Nutcrackers, and Red-breasted Nuthatches frequented yards at the base of the Carson Range, Golden-crowned Sparrows scratched around John Anderson’s yard in Mogul, Prairie Falcons zoomed through Frank Whitman’s turf in Austin (although Frank noted a dearth of the usual Cassin’s Finches this fall), and Chukars wandered the streets near the mining museum and McDonald’s in Tonopah. An Osprey and Varied Thrush even gave wing above long-deceased residents at the Tonopah cemetery in early October. Most of the rest of us muddled through with the aforementioned regulars, although Hermit Thrushes, Red-breasted Sapsuckers, and Golden-crowned Kinglets added variety to some yards. As of late November, Lew Oring in Reno still had a Costa’s Hummingbird that arrived during the summer and never left. Raptors of all types descended into the well-stocked lowland pantries in October and November. Nine species of hawks (Cooper’s, Sharp-shinned, Red-tailed, Red-shouldered, and Rough-legged Hawks, Merlin, American Kestrel, Northern Harrier, and Northern Goshawk), two of eagles (Bald and Golden), and five of owls (Great Horned, Longeared, and Northern Saw-whet Owls and Northern Pygmy-Owl) were seen in October and November. In one small woodland in west Reno, fresh Mourning Dove feathers littered the ground every day for weeks on end, so hunting apparently was good. The competition reared its head on occasion, with a Cooper’s Hawk chasing a Great Horned Owl, a Sharp-shinned pestering a feeding Cooper’s, and Barn Owls trying to coexist with their Great Horned arch enemies in Larry Williams’ Palomino Valley yard north of Reno. The lone saw-whet owl was a dead one in Fred Peterson’s yard, possibly the fatal result of the competition. For the waterfowl, lakes, ponds, and streams provided the much-needed food sources. Thanks to the residue of last spring’s rain, water bodies were full in the fall, and the waterfowl took full advantage. At the aptly named Swan Lake north of Reno, a couple of Tundra Swans appeared in late October, and, by late November, hundreds of swans formed a white, noisy blanket across the shallow lake, even as it slowly froze over in late November. Duck numbers surged as well, ranging from the subtly plumaged Gadwalls to the striking white-crested Buffleheads and Hooded Mergansers. Canada Geese numbers swelled as usual, joined by a Ross’s Goose at Swan Lake and a few Snow Geese at Idlewild Park and Rancho San Rafael in Reno. Most birds migrate from north to south in the fall, but Dippers migrate altitudinally, drifting (almost literally) downstream for the winter. By early November, their bobbing and diving feeding behavior was on display along the lower parts of many area rivers and streams. Joining them on the waterways were the usual Mallards and Common Mergansers and a few Common and Barrow’s Goldeneyes, with Belted Kingfishers hunting from overhanging snags. Chris Nicolai gave a great talk on Wood Ducks at the October Lahontan Audubon meeting, and, soon thereafter, several of these gorgeous birds took up residence and gave everyone good views at Idlewild Park in Reno. Wood Ducks also paid an unusual visit to the sewage ponds in West Wendover early during the fall migration, undoubtedly heading somewhere else. Townsend’s Solitaires were more abundant in towns this fall than in years past, with single birds common in many areas and up to three calling to each other in some places. Like Dippers, solitaires commonly migrate altitudinally, based on some good studies up near Eagle Lake north of Susanville, and many of the birds along the eastern Sierra front likely spent the summer up the hill. But some of the solitaires migrate latitudinally from northern areas to the central parts of the Great Basin. So, birds seen in, say, Elko, may have summered in southwestern Canada before heading south for the winter. The fall weather in the two breeding areas was markedly different (nice here, early snows up there), so no single reason led to the increase in numbers across northern Nevada, except perhaps that the multi-directional migration of human birders to the region induced more sightings. One hundred and ten species were reported from northern Nevada towns in October and November. Sources of information for this column included Elisabeth Ammon, Richard Brune, Ali Chaney, Tom Dozet, Jim Eidel, Pete Fairley, Dennis Ghiglieri, Bob Goodman, Marshall Iliff, Ed Kurtz, Jacque Lowery, Mike Margerum, Sue Anne Marshall, Martin Meyers, Chris Nicolai, Lew Oring, Fred Peterson, Harold Peterson, Kris Pizarro, Lynn Purcell, Georgia and Kenn Rohrs, Greg Scyphers, Dennis Serdehely, Jean Sherman, Heather Sprague, Rose Strickland, Steve Ting, Frank Whitman, Karen Wiig, Larry Williams, Diane Wong, and me.

The deadline for the next column is January 25. Happy New Year, and good birding!
