We just passed the FLLT heron rookery on Irish Settlement Rd. and noted a single GREAT BLUE HERON standing in each of three of the nests there. Do the same herons use the same nests year after year, or is it first-come-first-served? Nests were unoccupied yesterday. S. S. Fast Brooktondale

2011-03-13 Thread Jay McGowan
I eventually picked out at least 3 different ROSS'S GEESE with just over 600 Snow Geese in the Game Farm field, but a few minutes ago most of them took off towards the lake and I don't see any Ross's amongst the 150 remaining Snows. Jay McGowan -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

Deb all,The Eastern Screech-Owl(s) dubbed "Screechie" by Fritzie Blizzard of Union Springs is frequently seen in the Wood Duck box on the northeast side of the pond on Factory Street, close to the low branches of what I think is a willow and just north of the cattails. Earlier this year I saw the

Did anyone leave some binocs on my property on the way down the stairs to the dock? If so, contact me off-line. I noticed them this morning (spotted them through my binoculars) and brought them up to the house. They could have been left recently, or emerged out of the snow. This morning

Hi All, I missed all the fun yesterday because of work so I thought I might find some Snow Geese today. I saw mostly Canada Geese, Swans, and a lot of Pintails in the mucklands. There was also Mallards and Widgeons. The light was pretty bad and it was also raining. I did not see the Eagles

Some of you may remember back a few years to when an Eastern Screech owl inhabited a natural cavity along the East Ithaca Recreation Way, not too far in from Game Farm Road. It seems to have been absent for the past several years but tonight, as I was walking past the McDowell Nut Grove, a

On Friday we stopped by the Mud Lock Eagles nest and could not see any head on the nest or an Eagle in any nearby trees. Hopefully it was just sitting very low in the nest. Has anyone had better luck or have they failed? We also have not seen any adults near the nest north of the Rtes 89 and
