Chares Kahr (26 May 2017) - [Alton, UT] - Greater Sage-Grouse. These Grouse were seen in an area being monitored by biologists. There are open pit coal mines in the area and some of the Grouse have GPS sensors attached to them. Although these grouse are outside their typical range, they have been seen here for a number of years. Our group of four were driving through Sagebrush area when the grouse were seen standing in the field next to the road. When we got closer the 10 birds flushed and flew off. One picture is of a bird in flight. Following the flight with our binoculars we determined where they landed and walked across the sagebrush for 1/4 mile. Getting closer we got a couple more pictures as the grouse started to walk over a hillside. Unfortunately none of the pictures have very good quality but it was clear viewing thru binoculars and a spotting scope that they were Greater Sage Grouse. The white breast can be seen contrasting with the black bib.

Ken Schneider (22 September 2015) - [Jackson Flat Reservoir] - Neotropic Cormorant. Solitary cormorant seen first swimming on the lake about 20 yards away, then later seen in flight overhead. I have lots of experience with DCCO and some experience with NECO in the Southwest, but consider this a difficult ID in many cases. This bird had dark lores, a pointed angle to the rear end of the gular skin and a very long tail and rather skinny neck seen in flight. There was only faint white feathering bordering the gular pouch. I took a number of photos in flight and on the water, although the lighting just after sunrise on a cloudy day was not ideal. My best photos are below:

Jul 2014

Chris Babcock (30 Jul 2014) - I just spent a few days in Kodachrome Basin State Park in SW Utah. Posted on a birder site that I belong to on Facebook and someone from Utah just told me that my siting was unusual and suggested I send an email here. We were camped in Kodachrome Basin July 19 - 21st (site #8 if anyone cares). Black-throated Gray Warblers were very present and easily identifiable. Absolutely no doubt about the identification. I saw a minimum of 5 birds at one time though Iím pretty sure there were more based on the calls (maybe up to 10 total). They were busy in the trees morning and dusk - moving fairly constantly, but many good looks. Calls were as described in the guide books. Also present were Ash-Throated Flycatchers, Pinyon Jays (out the wazoo), Ravens, Violet-Green Swallows, Chipping Sparrows, Broad-tailed Hummingbirds, Black-chinned Hummingbirds and a Rufous Hummingbird. I saw what I think was a Gnatcatcher but didnít get a good enough look to be certain. Several of the Pinyon Jays were young - still begging and being obnoxiously noisy at 5am. :)

Sep 2011

Colby Newman (27 Sep 2013) - Just a quick note, I was down in the Bullfrog/Hite area around Lake Powell the past couple of days.  Birding was not the primary focus, but I was able to check the Bullfrog Marina for birds with the main highlight being a juvenile Sabine's Gull near the boat launch and several terns (two of which were Forster's Terns) yesterday.

Jun 2012

Joel Beyer (26 Jun 2012) - We saw a Cassin's Kingbird this morning in Kodachrome State Park (Kane County).

Apr 2011

Cheri (22 April 2011) - 12 Black-necked Stilts in small pond just N. of Mount Carmel Junction on East side of Hwy 89.

Cheri (22 April 2011) - Black-throated Grey Warbler. It came within 6 ft of me. Was curious about that "pishing" sound. Ruby-crowned Kinglets as well and Black chinned and Broad-tailed Hummers. Cassin's Finches here for a few weeks now. Robins nesting. Chipping Sparrows. Spring is great!

Mar 2011

Cheri (28 Mar 2011) - Cinnamon Teal. A beautiful pr. here on a shallow pond/marshy area. Lydia's Canyon, Kane Co.

Nov 2010

Cheri M (20 Nov 2010) - Have been enjoying 2 Red breasted Nuthatches here in Kane County. Frequenting the suet feeders and birdbaths the last few days. Prior to that they have been seen and heard in our wood. Northern Pygmy Owl here too.

Jul 2010

Cheri (9 July 2010) - Red-breasted Nuthatch here. First one since we moved here 14 mos. ago.

Jun 2010

Cheri (27 June 2010) - Wow! I read this AM about the Rufous Hummingbird being around the state and I just heard and then saw one here.

May 2010

Cheri "blujeans" (1 May 2010) - Came home today and had a M Bullocks on my suet mixture. Interesting. It is slightly sweet so maybe that's the attraction. Or maybe this is typical of the
Bullocks Oriole? I'm from Ohio and never had one before...

Apr 2010

Cheri (9 April 2910) - Broad-tailed hummer. Right on time! Sweet! Just this sec it was here at the window 2 ft from me.

Mar 2010

Cheri Medlin (9 March 2010) - Withstood the elements and saw a few ducks on a newly thawed sewage pond off of 89 near the Mt Carmel Junction. ...  Saw  Bufflehead, Ruddy Duck and Common Goldeneye pairs. Several Ring- necked Ducks and Green- winged Teals. Many gulls as well.

Feb 2010

Cheri Medlin (17 Feb 2010) Ė [Kane Co. N of Glendale] A pair of Hooded Mergansers have been here for at least 4 days now. I noticed the Kane Co. bird list has not gotten a report for these. An American Pipit is here too.

Cheri Medlin (16 Feb 2010) Ė Western Bluebirds are back. Just in time to get counted in the GBBC.
 

Dec 2009

Cheri [blujeans3] ( 7 Dec 2009) - [Lewis's Woodpecker]  Awesome bird! Seems to have its niche here in the canyon. A lifer for me. We are new to Utah birding. I wonder if the Lewis's is a fairly common WP in Kane County?
 

Nov 2009

Cheri (25 Nov 2009) - According to My Sibley's neither are uncommon but both were nice to see
today. Green-winged Teals hanging with mallards and the Golden-crowned Kinglet checking out my water source, a bird magnet!
 

Jul 2009

Cheri (25 Mar 2009) - This AM I have a Red-breasted Grosbeak here. I do not know what the normal pattern is at this time of year in SW Utah (transplant from Ohio where a spring migration is it) but I was surprised to see one since I haven't had one here since April.

Colby Neuman ( 29 Jul 2009) - I just received a report via ebird of a LITTLE BLUE HERON observed on July 20th in Kane County. The observer placed the location of his sighting along
Highway 89 at some ponds just north of where SR 9 joins Highway 89 (this is south of Orderville).
 

Jun 2009

Tim Avery (24 Mar 2009) - Doing two breeding bird surveys this month have yielded a couple unusual birds that may be of interest. Along hwy 14 in Kane County there were a pair of Zone-tailed Hawks earlier this week.
 

Jan 2009

Lu Giddings (10 Jan 2009) - I just arrived home from my southern swing a few hours ago. Based on encouraging notes from Kris Purdy and Chuck Larue, I finally did something I should have done yesterday morning: break out my field guides. Upon review of my field notes I'm quite certain that the bird was definitely *not* a Bullock's oriole. I believe there is a very good possibility that the bird may have been a Streak-backed Oriole.  My first impulse when I saw the bird was that it was a hooded oriole, as the head was very clearly and completely a brilliant orange in the overhead sunlight. There was no black cap and no black eye line. The belly was completely orange. The underwings appeared dark, but I didn't see them clearly. It had a slight black bib, more like the bib of a Bullock's oriole than the larger (in relative terms) bib of a hooded oriole. I was never in a position to see its back and I was not able to focus on its upper wings or bill. I did not hear the bird call.

Lu Giddings (8 Jan 2009) - At about 11 a.m. this morning an adult male Bullock's oriole [see above Jan 10 post] was seen flying from the vicinity of Southwest Applied Technology College in Kanab west across the road, just south of Kanab Middle School, and toward Kanab Creek. I had excellent looks at the bird in bright sunlight. I spotted the bird in the air as I drove south toward it. I watched it for 5-6 seconds. At it closest it passed within about 50 feet. I did not have time to attempt to relocate the bird after it disappeared into the Kanab Creek gulch.

Jun 2008

Eugene Hunn (30 Jun 2008) - While not on your report list I have photographed a pair of what sure look like Greater Scaup at Duck Creek Village, Kane County. There are also a number of Lesser Scaup pairs in the area as well as one or two Ring-necked Duck pairs. Greater Scaup, according to the maps, are not supposed to nest south of northern Canada. Both the male and female have the flat rounded crown and broad bill nail characteristic of Greater as opposed to Lesser Scaups and the female shows the distinct pale auricular patch typical of Greater females. The sinks tend to dry up in mid-summer so it's not clear if they will nest successfully. I'm very familiar with both species as I live in Seattle.

May 2008

Ryan P. O'Donnell (14 May 2008) - On Monday, May 12th, I saw a bird I believe to be a Canyon Towhee in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The bird was about 1-2 miles downstream from Hole-in-the-Rock Road along an unnamed drainage that starts near Cave Point and later joins Fiftymile Creek. The exact location of the bird was at UTM zone 12S, easting0500003, northing 4128394, WGS84 projection. I first saw this bird on Monday the 12th. Like all towhees, it was about sparrow shaped but larger than most sparrows and with a longer tail. As the bird flew into a shrub, it flashed rufous undertail coverts under a long dark tail. I could not get good looks at it in the dark interior of the shrub but was able to make out a rufous cap and pale patterning in the throat, and short sparrow-like bill (ruling out some even less likely birds like Crissal Thrasher). Overall the rest of the bird appeared dark gray. Unfortunately I didn't realize at the time that this bird was so rare in the state. I had to pass by the location two more times for my research and each time flushed a dark towhee-shaped bird but was unable to relocate it after each initial flush. I know this bird is a long shot and it's a long ways out of the way, but if anyone is in the area it might be worth a look. It's a beautiful hike, anyways. More when I return in a week or so.

Jun 2007

Tim Avery (28 Jun 2007) - Early Wednesday morning (around 1:00am) I was able to relocate the Spotted Owl originally reported by Larry Tripp in Stout Canyon. The bird started barking shortly after 1:00 am and I listened for about 15 minutes before heading out.

Larry Tripp (23 Jun 2007) - Last night I camped on a ridge top over looking Stout Canyon and saw a couple unusual things. One of the first birds I saw while scanning down into the canyon was a adult Goshawk perched in a dead tree that I was able to watch in the scope for about 5 minutes. Then while watching Common nighthawks soaring around before sundown a Black Swift flew right in front of me at eye level. I was watching it soar around for a couple minutes when another one joined it. I watched both of them at close range for a couple more minutes until they worked there way to the south out of sight. I didn't know of any nesting spots around there but at this time of year maybe. As it started to get dark ... A Spotted Owl started calling right below me in the canyon. When I got up today it was in the same area calling again.

Dec 2006

Dennis Shirley (22 Dec 2006) - I got a call from Lou Giddings last night who is birding in San Juan County for a few days. He wanted me to pass along a sighting of a Black Scoter at the Bullfrog/Hite ferry crossing on Lake Powell. It is a female and was at the Bullfrog ramp on Thursday afternoon.

Sep 2005

Gary Rosenberg - This morning, Saturday 10 September, 2005, there was an imm. male Anna's Hummingbird coming to the hummingbird feeders at the Best Western in Mt. Carmel Junction. The bird was photographed.

May 2004
