[cayugabirds-l] downed Red-tailed Hawk

2013-08-09 Thread Julie Bertram
Hi All, Sorry I could not handle this myself, but I had radiation 
therapy today. Here is a link to a photo of the downed RTH near Aurora. 
Very sad to see. It was 100 yards south of Gully Rd., on the east side 
of Sand Rd.. If anyone is in the neighborhood and can help it out I 
would appreciate it very much.  Fred Bertram

[cayugabirds-l] MNWR, Fri 8/9

2013-08-09 Thread Mark Chao
On our way to Buffalo on Friday, Tilden and I stopped at Knox-Marsellus
Marsh at around noon.  We watched mostly from Towpath Road.  Through the
first gap, we saw a large juvenile PEREGRINE FALCON perching in a tree
across the marsh.  We also saw a lot of BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS flying
around, plus two at rest.  Only a third of the way down the road, where the
potholes are like muddy kettle lakes, we decided to turn around, lest we get
stuck.

 

As usual, the landscape and birds are spectacular at East Road, but it's
hard to identify and enjoy individual birds because they are so far away.
In about 15 minutes, we saw the AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN, a few dozen BLACK
TERNS, many herons and egrets, and hundreds of shorebirds, including a
SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER, some PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, a probable BAIRD'S
SANDPIPER, maybe 25 SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS (distant flocks identifiable on the
basis of slower wingbeats, I learned), and many yellowlegs and smaller
Calidris.  The Peregrine Falcon made one pass over the marsh, sending all
the smaller birds scattering dramatically across the vast space.  Unseen
BOBOLINKS clanked musically throughout our visit.

[cayugabirds-l] Knox-Marsellus this afternoon

2013-08-09 Thread Leona Lauster
From the Knox-Marsellus overlook this afternoon I found the Wilson's Phalarope 
and two Black-bellied Plovers along with other shorebirds that have been 
reported recently.  Then something put everything up in the air and I couldn't 
find the BBPLs.  I didn't look for long though because it started to sprinkle. 
 I did find a lump moving along in the water which turned out to be a very 
large   snapping turtle.  I had a wonderful look at the American White Pelican 
standing alone in the water and then in flight.
