Sep 7, 2022: Wolf's August 2022 Wildlife Report


A lone American White Pelican was found at the south lake's SW corner during the sunrise of the 29th.  Pelicans migrated southward through the area and will continue to do so during September.  [I told people that this individual was probably a male, who refused to ask for directions and was now lost or misplaced.]  (Wolf. Oesterreich, 8/29/22)

A total of 101 avian species (plus 6 sp.) was recorded this month, ranking this month as the 2nd highest August among 25 years of records.  August 2007 and 2021, both with 107 species, remain as the highest August while August 2001, with only 46 species, is the lowest.  This total is 18 species more than last month and 6 less than August 2021.

Based on citations in the 3rd Edition of “The Birds of Story County, Iowa,” by Stephen J. Dinsmore and Hank Zaletel (2001), plus my personal updates to the records, the Northern Waterthrush on the 6th may represent a new extreme early Fall record for Story County (former record set on 12 Aug 1985 at Ames). 

Listed below, following the species’ names, are the date(s) of sighting(s), plus the occasional miscellaneous information regarding numbers, gender (=male, =female), age (d=duckling, im=immature, ju=juvenile, abp=adult breeding plumage, ad=adult, anb=adult non-breeding, f=fawn), color phase (b=blue, w=white), and location (BY=back yard, FY=front yard).  The order follows the 62nd Supplement (2021) to the American Ornithologists’ Union Check-list of North American Birds and the 21st Supplement to the 7th Edition (1998).
