[cayugabirds-l] VanCleef Shoveler

2012-01-02 Thread Dave K

Just found (2PM) a Male N.Shoveler on the Village side of Van Cleff Lake in 
Seneca Falls. Swimming within a few yards from the guard rails, getting out of 
the wind with some Mallards, ~24 Canada Geese, and one Coot. Beautiful 
plummage. Pics taken.

[cayugabirds-l] City Hall sharp-shinned hawk is back in hunting territory

2012-01-02 Thread Karen Edelstein
In early December, we had several days of excellent sightings of the
sharp-shinned hawk that has been hunting sparrows in the yew bushes on the
east side of Ithaca City Hall. The bird disappeared for a few weeks, but
was just sighted again. Stop by Autumn Leaves Used Books and check with Joe
for updates. Last month, you could watch the hawk from about 5 feet away
through a gap in the branches as it ate its meals.

[cayugabirds-l] Orange-cr. Warbler Ithaca Community Garden

2012-01-02 Thread Kenneth Victor Rosenberg
I'm sorry for not posting the details on this bird earlier, but yesterday 
during the Ithaca CBC, I found a fairly bright ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER in the 
Community Garden south of Farmer's Market in Ithaca. I flushed it initially 
with a flock of juncos from the south end of the garden on the east side of the 
entrance road -- the garden still is (was) pretty green with vegetable leaves 
and weeds. The bird sat up in the brush pile just south of the garden boundary, 
and then flew off to the south. Later in the afternoon, Tim Lenz relocated the 
warbler along the weedy edge of the field to the south of the garden, closer to 
the CITGO station. 

This was a first record for the long-running Ithaca CBC, but exactly the kind 
of bird I was hoping to find with the lingering warm weather and greenery. Good 
luck to anyone hoping to re-find this bird, especially as the first cold blast 
of winter weather is approaching

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Orange-cr. Warbler Ithaca Community Garden

2012-01-02 Thread bob mcguire
I spent over an hour in and around the community gardens on Rt 13 this  
morning, accompanied some of the time by Dave Nutter and Paul  
Anderson. We did not re-find the Orange-crowned Warbler. Here's hoping  
that it took advantage of a calm evening and managed to escape south.


In the area, though, I scared up a Carolina Wren, Northern  
Mockingbird, and Song Sparrow.

[cayugabirds-l] East Hill Northern Shrike

2012-01-02 Thread Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes
This afternoon at about 1:00pm, while running errands on the last day of our 
holiday break, Diane and I spotted what looked like an Adult NORTHERN SHRIKE 
(no binocs) perched atop a small tree in the yard to the South of the HSBC Bank 
located at the Mitchell Street/Ellis Hollow Road and Judd Falls Road/Pine Tree 
Road light. This was immediately opposite the WVBR Radio Station at 957 
Mitchell Street. The bird stayed atop that small tree for a few minutes, then 
flew to the NW about 50 yards to another small tree closer to the stand of 
White Pines at the back entrance to Rite Aid. After a few more minutes, the 
bird flew again to the NW to the more scrubby back lot to the NW of the Rite 
Aid building (near where the old Courtside Fitness Center parking used to be), 
which is where we left it when we had to get going.

Maybe this bird will stick around the way some of the others have been doing.

Good luck and good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H
