[cayugabirds-l] Ringwood Rd Brown Thrasher

2013-04-20 Thread Marie P. Read
I stepped outside to do a chore a few minutes ago and heard snatches of a song that seemed out of place up here - loud, bright, with a definite mimid-feel to it. Shortly afterwards, a Brown Thrasher landed in my flower garden and started tossing leaves about. Only the second time I've recorded

FOY blue-gray gnatcatcher briefly chased a ruby-crowned kinglet for a good comparison of small eye-ringed flitters. Almost certain that a second individual was about. This is in the eastern end of the woods, near the stone arch. A downed tree and some flooding makes trail conditions less than

We, too, heard a Brown Thrawsher singing this morning for the first time this year. It was in our (extended) yard on the south side of Hammond Hill Rd.. That makes at least four people seeing 5 thrashers for the first time this year. Must have been a good night for thrashers to migrate. As I

Hi all, Stewart Park put on a great show this morning, with the male YELLOW WARBLER continuing at Swan Pen, at least 6 SPOTTED SANDPIPERS, a GREEN HERON at Renwick, at least 2 BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS, and 10+ YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS. No terns, catbird, or grebes that I saw, but a decent

All: I am working on arranging a new kind of field trip for the bird club. The idea is to go up to the Montezuma area and explore some of the waterways by kayak. I have talked with an outfitter who can provide all the gear and lead the trip. I'm now looking for people who are interested in

I observed a pair of Yellow-rumped warblers at the Swan Pen between 4:20 p.m. and 5:20 p.m. I did not see the Audubon YrW. In addition I did scope a Yellow Warbler(foy) on the east end of the Swan pen and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher on the west end. There were also a dozen TVs circling the boat
