Update – 14 June 2014

Regular readers (are there any?) will note my absence over the past couple of weeks.  I was on the road, in part to deliver a presentation on this research to the joint annual meeting of the Wilson Ornithological Society and the Association of Field Ornithologists.  I was very lucky to have Dr. Scott Loss keep an eye on the Noble Research Center for me.  He reported something new: a pair of trapped Scissor-tailed Flycatchers on June 1st.  This is a new species for the study, despite the abundance of scissortails here in Stillwater. (Both were shooed away from the building and flew off strongly.)  Scott also found a recently fledged Mourning Dove dead at the northwestern alcove on June 2nd.

On my return, I found a scavenged carcass of an adult Mourning Dove at the north entrance on Wed., June 11.  I have conservatively recorded that bird as having died on the previous day (6/10), and its remains were still in evidence this morning.  That’s it, you are now up to date with Avian Window Kills.
