This is the Kentucky Bird Line, sponsored by the Kentucky Ornithological
Society.  This update is current as of November 2, 2005 at 11:00 AM EDT.
The highlights of this update are:


A juvenile RED-THROATED LOON  has been observed on the Ohio River from
Zorn Avenue at the Louisville water company tower.  This was on the
morning of the 2nd of November. 


A SPOTTED TOWHEE has showed up at the same place in McCracken County for
the 3rd winter in a row. Location for this bird is on KY1321 (Bethal
Church Road) 2.55 miles north of the junction with KY 725 at Cimota
City.  It was seen immediately to the right of a pull off. A DICKCISSEL
was heard from this stop also.


Few warblers were noted this week. Pulaski County held TENNESSEE, and
ORANGE-CROWNED on the 29th. A PALM WARBLER was seen at Barren River
Reservoir on the 27th, and a BLACK-THROATED GREEN was mentioned from
Jefferson County on the 25th.


Sparrows made a showing this week with LINCOLN'S and FOX SPARROWS viewed
at Barren River; HENSLOW'S, VESPER, and LINCOLN'S SPARROWS mentioned
from Pulaski County private property; and VESPER and SAVANNAH SPARROWS
as well as a BOBOLINK were noted in Jefferson County.


PURPLE FINCH were observed in Warren and Jefferson Counties on the 28th.
And in conclusion, RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH are making list from numerous
