Re: [cayugabirds-l] Mars with Woodcock

2014-04-10 Thread Susan Fast
Mars is still a little orange disk, dropping toward the Thatcher Pinnacles, to 
the accompaniment of MY front yard Woodcock.  Cold out there.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca breeding goose investigation

2014-04-10 Thread Dave Nutter
Bill,Great idea! It would be good to get an idea of pairs, and if possible nest locations, while nesting is going on. Maybe later an idea of young produced. What area did you want to cover? At Stewart Park yesterday during a brief cruise through in the taxi I tallied at least 16 pairs of geese plus several others that were not obviously paired. I don't know whether the pairs have nests, and if so whether they commute to Stewart Park to graze.--Dave NutterOn Apr 08, 2014, at 09:48 PM, Bill Evans wrev...@clarityconnect.com wrote:Sometimes it goes by so fast you hardly have time to reflect\Tons and tons of potential reflection swept under the bridge\So I inject the following peculiar observation\I’m sitting in my office across from Agway working late tonight, ~7:45pm, and I hear calls of geese and look out the window\I see two geese, presumably a pair, flying low (100 ft agl) circling back south, I think toward the pair’s nest site\The question arises: Where are these geese going and how many such breeding pairs are there in the Cayuga Inlet floodplain?I’m guessing 10 pair, and I mull over lunchtime walks looking for gosslings in a month or so\Will report back with findings\Welcome any assistance or reports\Bill Ep.s. this is not like counting earthworms crossing the sidewalk in the rain.--Cayugabirds-L List Info:Welcome and BasicsRules and InformationSubscribe, Configuration and LeaveArchives:The Mail ArchiveSurfbirdsBirdingOnThe.NetPlease submit your observations to eBird!--

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca breeding goose investigation

2014-04-10 Thread Bill Evans
I’m thinking the area bounded by the south shore of Cayuga Lake (say out 
100-ft), the base of the hills, and south to the bridge to nowhere.

We might as well add mallards to the survey – I’m always surprised at the 
locations where they nest within the city.

I’m happy to put a map online and update it with nests and gosling locations, 
but if someone else wants to do this that would be welcome.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Merlin @ Giles St

2014-04-10 Thread Marc Devokaitis
I have not seen the two Merlins together since the day I observed the
mating, but I have seen one from my porch almost every day. The favorite
perch seems to be in an oak tree in a backyard bordered by Prospect,
Pleasant and Hudson--have seen it there on at least half a dozen separate
occasions in the past week.

Hi all,

I'll be leading a field trip this Sunday at the late-bird hour of 8:30am,
meeting at the Lab parking lot. Destination is still in flux (and subject
to influence of attendees), but will likely be in the direction of Park
Preserve and Dryden Lake. Trip will end around 1pm. All are welcome (member
or non-member, beginner or expert). FMI email or call 607-351-9334.

[cayugabirds-l] Friday could be interesting.

2014-04-10 Thread daven1...@yahoo.com
Radars are lit up with bird echoes across the northeast  and mid Atlantic at 
present and a cold front with showers will move across central NY overnight 
grounding migrants.
I would expect more new arrivals and a decent day Friday!

Good luck.
