This is the Kentucky Bird Line, sponsored by the Kentucky Ornithological
Society.  This update is current as of  November 29, 2004 at 8:00 AM
EDT.  The highlights of this update are:

 

As of Saturday the 27th the NORTHERN SHRIKE was still being seen in the
Sinclair Unit of the Peabody WMA. This area is located just east of
Drakesboro on 176; the entrance is to the right just after a small lake.
The territory of the Shrike is considerable, and it may take some time
in locating it. Please remember that a permit is needed and can be
purchased locally at many stores.

 

Also seen in the Sinclair unit were:  SEDGE WRENS, HORNED LARKS, and
singles of LECONTE'S SPARROW, LAPLAND LONGSPUR, PALM WARBLER, and a fly
over GOLDEN EAGLE. In the Homestead Unit of Peabody WMA 2 ROUGH-LEGGED
HAWK, and 4 CACKLING GEESE were also added.

 

Along with BALD EAGLE being reported from all the likely places, an
additional GOLDEN EAGLE (2ND YEAR) was reported from the Bernheim
Forest. This observation took place off of Harrison Fork Road at the
back of Bernheim. Also reported from there were 2 flocks of SANDHILL
CRANE totaling 140 birds. SANDHILL CRANE were also reported form Wayne
County.

 

There were plenty of reports on the presence of water fowl. Highlights
were 3  BLACK SCOTERS, 10 SURF SCOTERS, and 17 RED-BREASTED MERGANSERS
on the Ohio River in the Louisville area. 20 RED-BREASTED MERGANSER were
also at Barren River Reservoir, along with 55 RUDDY DUCK, and HORNED
GREBE. 11 HORNED GREBE were seen at Waitsboro on Lake Cumberland. And
large numbers of SNOW GEESE were reported over Murray State's Stadium on
the 20th between 6 and 8 PM. 

 

We had 2 reports of single PURPLE FINCH, one from Calloway County, the
other from Bernheim 
Forest. A LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE was observed at Barren River Reservoir.
LESSER BLACK-BACKED and THAYER'S GULL were reported from Kentucky Lake
Dam. A GRAY CATBIRD was seen on highway 192, east of Somerset on the
27th. 2 LINCOLN'S SPARROWS were also seen on the 27th in Harrison
County. And the stay of the SELASPHORUS HUMMINGBIRD in Bowling Green
continues.
