STARLINGS feeding on the orn. cherry berries along the big shrubby slope at

[cayugabirds-l] Sunshine brings out Brown Creeper and Carolina Wren

2012-01-22 Thread Nari Mistry
A little bit of sunshine seems to bring a Brown Creeper to our box-elder 
every time. It seems to appear with the sunlight. Can't wait for Spring 
to hear its tinkling song again.
Today the sun also brought back a Carolina Wren to our feeders -- first 
return since CBC count week, although I heard a little snatch of trill 
yesterday. Now waiting for the pair to come regularly to the suet.
Other birds at our feeders: T.Titmouse, A.Tree Sparrow, White-thr 
Sparrow, Mourning Doves, House Finches, Goldfinches, RBWoodpecker, 
Downy, and many Juncos (I will go crazy looking for Chris Wood's Cassiar 
Junco). No Pine Siskins or Purple Finches have shown up here.

[cayugabirds-l] Backyard Raven and TV

2012-01-22 Thread Nari Mistry
A few minutes ago,  I was watching our resident Turkey Vulture 
circling  swooping low (30ft) all around our backyard and then 
settling on a back corner tree to spread its wings in the sun. A Raven 
swooped down and was immediately mobbed by three crows, until it circled 
back over the TV and was chased away. The large size and the wedge tail 
was immediately recognizable, even w/o the mobbing crows.
For several weeks there has been a deer carcass just outside the SE 
corner of our deer-fenced yard, which is why the TV and the Raven are 
interested.

[cayugabirds-l] shorteared, yes; snowy , no

2012-01-22 Thread cl...@juno.com
Just a quick note to anyone interested. Cayuga Bird Club field trip this 
morning saw one Shorteared Owl just north of the intersection of Wycoff and 
Rock River on the west side of the road.  Gray house with line of smallish 
spruces along south edge- owl was roosting in spruce with tallish post near it. 
No sign of snowy owl in the area, but we did have a small mixed flock of horned 
lark and lapland longspur flying back and forth along Wycoff.

[cayugabirds-l] Ovid birding (no Snowy Owl), Sunday a.m.

2012-01-22 Thread Dave Nutter
Susan Danskin  I spent the morning wandering roads in Ovid staring at suspicious lumps of snow and other inanimate objects and not seeing any Snowy Owl. We encountered 5 other parties, each with the same story. A couple other people were planning to try later, and since I haven't heard from them, I suspect they had similar luck. Maybe the Snowy Owl is still around, and it roosts someplace out of view during the day, only sitting atop trees on street corners toward evening. The first party we met was Tim Lenz, Jay McGowan, and Brad Walker, who were kind enough to tell us about the roosting SHORT-EARED OWLS (there were at least 3 at the time) which Colleen Richard mentioned near Rock River Rd  Wycoff Rd.Although we missed the Lapland Longspurs among the many HORNED LARKS we saw, we did find one AMERICAN PIPIT alongside Wycoff Rd and 2 SAVANNAH SPARROWS along Munson Rd.

Mary Jean and I drove along Hall Rd and Wycoff Rd this evening about 4:30pm hoping to get another look at the short-eared owls that she saw yesterday. We were disappointed that we did not see them, though
 we may have been a bit early. We were, though, treated to a SNOWY OWL on Wycoff Rd, near Co Rd 129. The owl was perched at the top of a rather tall Norway spruce in a cluster of Norway spruce trees in the farmstead yard at the south east corner of the Wycoff
 and Co Rd 129 intersection. We spotted it from a distance and we approached it slowly in our car and it did not fly even when we were just below it parked in front of the house. We were on our way to Geneva so were not able to stay longer, but it remained
 in that tree while we were there. Hopefully it will be there tomorrow as well.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] PLantations Waxwings?

2012-01-22 Thread Marie P Read
Steve,

Was the Plantations access road open or did you walk in? Folks should be aware 
that the road is usually closed in winter, and even if snowless the road 
sometimes opens late on the weekends. A relatively short but steep way to get 
quickly to the crabapple collection (good place for frugivorous avians) is via 
the stairs on Forest Home Drive opposite the bridge area of flat rock.

[cayugabirds-l] Ovid Owls

2012-01-22 Thread Matthew Medler
Hi All,

There were at least three Short-eared Owls present yesterday evening (21 Jan 
2012) in the area in Ovid previously described by Marty Schlabach (thanks Marty 
and Mary Jean!). There was one owl perched on a post along Rock River Road, 
just north of the intersection of Wycoff, at 4:55 pm. This bird then took 
flight over the field east of Rock River and north of Wycoff (north of the farm 
at the intersection), and was soon joined by two others in flight. All three 
birds eventually moved eastward, and were likely better viewed from along 
Wycoff. But, one bird eventually came back closer to Rock River, caught some 
sort of gray rodent, and proceeded to eat it while perched on a short post 
right along Rock River Road. A great show! This was all between 4:55 and 5:20 
pm.

[cayugabirds-l] No snowy

2012-01-22 Thread Laura Stenzler
Ton and I looked for the snowy for an hour (12-1) with no luck. We've been 
driving along Wycoff and co rd 129. Lots of horned larks.

[cayugabirds-l] Adult Bald Eagle

2012-01-22 Thread Chris Pelkie
First Adult BALD EAGLE for my yard list and year list (have an immature from a 
couple summers back for the yard list so this is only the 2nd one I've ever 
seen from here). About 330pm, right after a stream of crows had flown over, I 
noticed a much bigger, flat profile bird coming from the same direction. 
Fortunately, had the binocs so got a great thrill to see the white head of the 
big Baldie coming right at me. It flew down Asbury Road direction probably 
about 300' high, took one more half turn, then headed off in the direction of 
the lake. I'm about 2.5 mi north of Pyramid Mall just off Triphammer Rd.

Shortly after, a couple TURKEY VULTUREs appeared (they are quite common here) 
which made a nice 'big bird soaring profile' contrast.

[cayugabirds-l] Sodus Point King Eider 2 hours later

2012-01-22 Thread Michael and Joann Tetlow
Calling Brad Carlson to tell him of a female King Eider we found at
Sodus Point, he told us we were 2 hours behind the times.  It was against
the east breakwall right near the south end.  No Barrow's Goldeneye for us
today either.  A female Black Scoter was the only other special bird.  Most
of Friday's Greater Scaup and Redhead were gone and there were less Common
Goldeneye.

Good numbers of Goldeneye and Long-tailed Duck were at the Little Sodus
Bay Outlet with 3 Ring-necked Ducks being the highlight.  1 Northern Shrike
along 104A east of Fairhaven.  Mike and Joann Tetlow
