I found an interesting looking flicker along Catalina Rd., Nodaway Co. (this
is the road between Hwy. 46 and DD "N. Shrike road" - first road west of
Nodaway River on 46). The bird looked just like a male "red-shafted" flicker
but had a red nape. I sent Patrick a picture to post on mobirds.com.

 

My question is: do we need to document bird subspecies and morphs such as
"red-shafted" flicker, subspecies if juncos (white-winged etc.) for MRBC? I
know that flicker is not on the MRBC review list.

 

All the lakes in the area (Mozingo, Nodaway CO Lake, Bilby) are frozen
solid. Red-tailed hawks, kestrels and bald eagles are thick.

 

Later,

Peter

 

P.S. Thanks for everybody who provided info on red-cockaded woodpecker and
brown-headed nuthatch in AR. Patrick H. and I got both at one spot about 7
mi from the hotel we were staying at first weekend of December! Let me know
if you need the info on that spot.

 

P.P.S. On the way to meet Patrick to go to AR (12/02/05) driving south on 71
I saw a golden eagle near Savannah (Andrew Co.). Sorry for the late note,
but the bird was on the move anyway.
