  • Long and slim, the Palm Warbler...

    The Palm Warbler is a 5-and-a-half-inch long bird with an 8-inch wingspan and weighs all of 0.35 ounces that is a fairly common in Kentucky while crossing statewide on its migration route. At times it may also become a winter resident.

  • Rusty blackbird population is...

    The Rusty Blackbird is somewhat different from other blackbird species. First of all they don’t flock up in the winter with other members of the blackbird family.

    When you see a huge flock of blackbirds in the winter months, it will be composed of Common Grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Brown-headed Cowbirds along with the most numerous birds in America, the alien European Starling.

  • An infrequent visitor, Roseate...

    Records of Roseate Spoonbills seen in Kentucky are on July 29 and Aug. 18, 1989, at Honker’s Lake at the Land-Between-the-Lakes in Trigg County, on Sept. 13-17, 1994, also at LBL, and on Sept. 4 and Sept. 8, 2013 on Guist Creek Lake in Shelby County. They are normally found on both coasts of Florida, the Louisiana and Texas Coasts, Mexico and Central American Coasts and they obviously wander north, occasionally.

  • Ring-billed Gull is a consistent...

    The Ring-billed Gull is a fairly common visitor during migration throughout Kentucky. I usually see them in Shelby County during the spring migration on Guist Creek Lake, the Kroger parking lot, the Walmart parking lot, and in 2013 saw about 50 of them sitting in a pasture on Gallrein Farms, apparently resting possibly after a long migratory flight.

  • Rockets beat Beechwood in...

    With three top quality interior players back, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team’s new coach got a good look at what his team is capable of in a preseason scrimmage against Beechwood at the Scott County Hoopfest ????WHEN????.

    Hoping to keep the Rockets’ trio of six-footers in Mackenzie and Savannnah Raizor and Justus Martin in check, Beechwood employed a tight zone defense through much of the scrimmage.

  • Redhead duck’s population is...

    Just like humans, each bird species, has its own uniqueness. For instance, the Redhead is considered to be a diver type duck, yet quite frequently feeds in shallow water where it displays feeding techniques of the dabbler ducks by tipping up and feeding in such a way, that only their rear end is visible.

  • The not-so purple Purple Finch

    The Purple Finch only visits Kentucky in the winter and is another one of those birds that someone misnamed, because there is nothing purple about this 6-inch bird with a 10-inch wingspan. Instead the male is a raspberry color, which is not purple, by any means.

  • Small, fast Green-winged Teal...
  • The largest gull is a rare...
  • A northern nomad, the Eastern...

    The Evening Grosbeak is the nomad of the North and the mountains.

    The bird seems to wander unpredictably, often in large noisy flocks, and while it may be common in a region one year, it could be totally absent the next.
