Save Iowa Nesters

A traveling art exhibit by Iowa Young Birders’ Coralee Bodeker highlighting the impact of habitat loss on Iowa’s nesting bird species.#saveiowanesters

One final time for Species Sunday—today features the Barn Owl! The Barn Owl is endangered in Iowa due to a decline in suitable nesting habitat. As the name implies, these owls like to nest in cavities such as those found in old barns. But, recently, many old barns & trees with suitable cavities have been taken down. The disappearance of grassland habitat for hunting rodents has also contributed. One of the ways these owls have begun to make a comeback is with man-made nest boxes. When placed in suitable habitat, nest boxes really help! #saveiowanesters #barnowl #iowadnr #artforconservation #youngbirder #thisisiowa #owlsofinstagram

Species Sunday!—— featuring the Upland Sandpiper. This species of sandpiper does not nest near water—they prefer short, grassy fields & pastures. Once a common game bird, Uplands are a rare nester in Iowa now. CRP lands have helped these birds specifically in the south/central part of the state 📷: Mark Brown #saveiowanesters #uplandsandpiper #thisisiowa #youngbirder #artforconservation #iowadnr

It’s Species Sunday—feat. the Ruffed Grouse. Last week birders in Allamakee Co. heard a male drumming (beating their feathers to produce a low booming sound)—males do so in the summer/fall to defend territory & in the spring to attract mates. The Ruffed Grouse was once found throughout the forest habitat of Iowa, often near a source of water, but today they are only found in the NE corner due to deforestation. It’s a rare treat to locate one nowadays.

It’s Species Sunday! 🎉🦆- featuring the King Rail. This wetland bird is Endangered in Iowa. Very few can still be found in the state—from 2008-2012 only one nesting was ‘confirmed’. This decline is mostly because only 10% of Iowa’s original wetlands remain. You can help by supporting organizations that are actively working to restore & preserve Iowa’s wetlands such as The Nature Conservancy in Iowa @nature_ia and Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy @iowaswaterandlandlegacy 📷: Mark Brown/KING RAIL in Iowa, circa 2005.

Species Sunday!— featuring the Red-headed Woodpecker. Have you ever seen one of these flashy woodpeckers fly over the road or perch on a telephone pole? Red-headed Woodpeckers are becoming a rare sight in Iowa as the  hardwood nut trees they need to live are cleared away. Planting stands of trees like oak, hickory, and beech can help keep them nesting around your home. 🌱🌳🌳🌳#saveiowanesters #youngbirder #redheadedwoodpecker #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #thisisiowa #iowadnr #optoutside #planttrees

If you visit the #saveiowanesters exhibit this winter, be sure to look for the Upland Sandpiper 👀, a bird you can only see in Iowa for a few precious months in the summer before they migrate south. 🏖🌴☀️ #prettybird #thisisiowa #uplandsandpiper #youngbirder #artexhibition #birdyourworld #yearofthebird

It’s Species Sunday! — today I’m featuring the Northern Bobwhite, colloquially known as the Bobwhite quail. In the past, the Bobwhite was one of Iowa’s staple game birds, but habitat loss from modern farming methods greatly decreased their numbers. CRP acreage in the southern 3 tiers of counties has led to a recent Bobwhite comeback in those areas. 📷: Linda Rudolph #saveiowanesters
