[cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Common Redpolls - YES!

2018-12-04 Thread Marie P. Read
A flock of about 30 Common Redpolls continues to associate with the growing 
Snow Bunting flock on Mt Pleasant Rd this morning. They all were in the weedy 
field opposite the communications tower, both around 10:30 when I first saw 
them and around 11:30 when I returned. Basically the same spot as I saw them 2 
days ago.
Tip for spotting the redpolls: look for the birds that are clinging to the 
plant stems...that would be the redpolls, whereas the Snow Buntings are mostly 
foraging on the ground.

[cayugabirds-l] Tundra Swans

2018-12-04 Thread Geo Kloppel
I was standing on Tupper Road at about 8:50 this morning with a couple of 
walking companions whom I’d just met. Visibility was reduced by the falling 
snow to just a few hundred yards. We heard but could not see a flock of Tundra 
Swans passing south along the Cayuga Inlet Valley to our east.

[cayugabirds-l] Evening Grosbeaks

2018-12-04 Thread Rachel Lodder
So happy that I got some here at my feeders this morning (in Newfield, near 
Connecticut Hill)! Quite a few of them, I'd guess about 20, and the crabapple 
tree where the feeders are seemed full of them. Unfortunately, they flew off 
rather quickly. Hoping they return.
American Tree Sparrows here too.

[cayugabirds-l] Evening Grosbeaks!

2018-12-04 Thread Carol Keeler
Finally I had a flock of male and female Evening Grosbeaks here in Auburn!
Unfortunately, a squirrel came and a Coopers Hawk, at the same time and scared 
them off.  I have no idea how long they had been here.  Luckily my camera was 
nearby and I did get a few pics.   I hope they return.  Cooper is still sitting 
in the crabapple tree and watching the feeders.
