More Snow Geese are passing south out of the basin on this morning's brisk tail
wind. I don't expect to see them circle back. There's relatively little
agricultural land south of here, and it's all buried in snow.

Last night about 1015pm as I was shoveling my sidewalk one last time before going to bed, I heard geese overhead. They were fairly low, and not particularly going south. I don't know why they were wandering around in the low clouds lit up by Ithaca's street lights. Mostly they were Canadas, but I
Mixed flocks streamed over Candor all morning, hard to see sometimes

looked out for geese from my house and did not find any at all.

I am here in the basin for New Year's day. If anyone needs any area to be
covered and do not have someone to cover it let me know.

I think the Red-shouldered Hawk was not found at Sapsucker Woods last winter (2011-12). There are eBird reports from winter 2010-2011, but nothing in 2011 after an immature which Jay saw migrating in mid-November. In 2012 there are only eBird reports for Red-shouldered Hawk from Sapsucker Woods
Yesterday we had a juvenile Coopers hawk hunting (unsuccessfully) at our
feeders. He had not honed his craft and positioned himself poorly (he/she,
that is). We have a mature sharpie that is much more polished (posted about
him before). Just a few minutes ago we had a kestrel strike,
About 2 p.m. I went to fill a feeder but had to shovel to get to it. As I
stopped to rest I glanced up saw an adult BALD EAGLE flying westward towards
the lake, almost overhead, slightly southward! Nice treat!

There are large numbers of Tundra Swans currently migrating over Ithaca. I
counted well over 175 during a walk around downtown/fall creek.

Around 2:30 at East Hill Plaza I could hear flyover Tundras but couldn't see
them in the clouds. If they have been moving all this time that's quite a good
