Are the large numbers of snow geese still present on cayuga lake or montezuma
area? Also the aythya raft? Tundra swans? Have not seen any posts lately.
Have a couple guests I am taking birding today up the lake. Thanks

Tremendous numbers at Knox Marcellus and on the muck south of Rt 31 on Friday.
They are still providing spectacular night time flyovers, brightly reflecting
the lights of Seneca Falls. Surreal.

Yesterday (Saturday 3 March) I went up to Mount Pleasant with the quixotic goal of repeating others' findings (Golden Eagle! Northern Goshawk! Red-shouldered Hawk! Eastern Meadowlark!) of the previous day. But every day is different. Although the winds were still southerly they were brutally
Just thought I'd share this preview of the video I'm making from my trip to
Bolivia last January. Note: There are no birds in this preview, just some
habitat, but there will be birds in the final video.
Northbound Flock of 500 just passed over my house at about 100-ft above
ground level in heavy snowfall.
Cayugabirds-L List Info:
We've recently observed activities that indicate the birds may start to
breed well before they otherwise would. This of course includes the
earlier migrating and the singing that many of us have reported.
Yesterday I observed a male cardinal chasing a female about. She would

My sister on Tug Hill has a Gray Crowned Rosy Finch coming to feeders. She has
been feeding huge numbers of Goldfinches and this little guy turned up today
while she was doing Feederwatch counts. She is allowing visitors to observe the
feeders. She has posted a few pictures on the Lab of O
This afternoon I had the occasion to be in Dryden with a couple of hours to spare. In between snow flurries I saw a few birds, the most notable of which were coincidentally white.On Ferguson Road and moving between Mill Street and NYS-38 among a mixed flock of CEDAR WAXWINGS and AMERICAN ROBINS
After obtaining permission to see the GCRF, I plan on going up there
tomorrow morning, If anyone would like to ride along give me a call 607

Took a trip up and around Cayuga Lake today with my father-in-law
and brother-in-law. We also went to the Mucklands. The main goal
was to see large numbers of snow geese and the bald eagle nest at
Mud Lock. In between snow squalls, we succeeded. Great views of
the Bald Eagle pair. One on nest
The more I look at my grebe photo...the head shape seems
to make it a horned grebe to me, it is not peaked toward the front
of the head...also the white is fairly prominent... not enough duskiness

I am a relatively new birder and was wondering when the best time to visit
montezuma/cayuga lake is. I am looking for migrant waterfowl. Spring or fall?
The next few weeks or sometime in April? I am intrigued by the western grebe
however if the fall is better across the board I would wait.
I can't go Monday, but if the bird is still around, and anybody's going Tuesday, I'd like to go along.--Dave NutterOn Mar 04, 2012, at 07:58 PM, Carl Steckler c...@cornell.edu wrote:After obtaining permission to see the GCRF, I plan on going up there

The Snow Geese, ( Aythya too ), on Cayuga were close to Cayuga Lake
State Park visible from the end of Lake Rd. / Rt-89. I found two Ross's Geese
in with about 30,000 Snows. The flock Dave mentioned on the Mucklands is
pretty impressive, but viewing is more difficult. They situated
A few Tundra Swans lingering at the north end of the lake as of Saturday
morning, best visible from Cayuga Lake State Park or nearby.

It is interesting to hear about this Gray Crowned Rosy Finch. On 22 Dec 2011 or
so, there was one seen south of this location in Windham area of Catskills in
upstate New York. So the question is were there two Gray Crowned Rosy Finches
in New York state or the first bird moved north? As crow
