[cayugabirds-l] FWD: GPS Tracked Snowy Owls in NY

2014-01-29 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal

This has not come to Cayugabirds. So I thought it might be of interest to some 
of you who are not in NYSbirds.



This cool!

I thought this listserv might be interested in the fact that three GPS
tracked snowy owls are currently in New York, all part of the Project
SNOWstorm initiative this winter (more info on the project at
projectsnowstorm.org).

Two owls were recently banded near Braddock Bay and a third owl that was
banded in Erie, PA two weeks ago has now flown across the state border.

The fascinating part is that all three owls appear to be taking rides out
into the Great Lakes on ice floes. You can follow along with their
movements on an interactive map. Under optimal conditions (fully charged
batteries and good cell reception) these birds send us updates on their
whereabouts every three days, so you can check back occasionally to see new
data.

[cayugabirds-l] [OOB] Snowy Owl West of Rt. 96a Geneva / Larsen Rd.

2014-01-29 Thread Daniel Graham
As of 7:55AM Snowy Owl, presumably the same one David Diaz spotted
yesterday, is back near the same spot. Just now it was silhouetted
against the ridgeline quite far from the road, but beautifully
illuminated by the sun. Incidentally, I saw what I again presume was
the same bird back on Dec. 3 in this area--it appeared to have
substantial dark coloration then, but it was too far away to tell with
my small binoculars today. I have heard through the grapevine that a
Snowy was seen in this area in past years as well, so perhaps this is
the bird's vacation spot, so to speak.

[cayugabirds-l] Compost jackpot - Glaucous, Iceland and LBBG this morning

2014-01-29 Thread Jeff Gerbracht
After visiting the compost 3-4 times a week, I finally had some success
this morning which more than made up for all of the gull-less visits I've
had this January.

2 1st year Iceland's were sitting on the compost rows along with 2 Lesser
Black-backed Gulls.But the highlight was definitely the 3rd winter /
adult Glaucous
Gull that appeared from no where, circled the car once and then,
unfortunately, headed off in the direction of Monkey Run.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] SNOW HELP-Please-Thanks

2014-01-29 Thread John Confer
My gosh,

I wouldn't have guessed that I could get so many helpful tips about 
somewhat sedentary SNOW. Thanks so much. The 16 person field trip looks 
like it may well be a success. Of course, the weather forecast is now 
for warming (which you might think was a blessing, except) with 
snow/sleet/rain. It could be that this trip is under a jinx. I'm 
certainly not going to supervise the driving of two vans filled with 
students in sleet/rain/snow, but we'll see what happens.

 Given the kind input so far, I will pay particular attention around 
Lane Rd off 34 and to the southern end of Indian Field Rd.!

 Several people have said that they have seen the SEOWs near Lake 
Winery from even as early as 3:30 to 4:30. I will time the trip to catch 
that window of opportunity. By the way, the raptor survey for the 
Greater Montezuma Wetlands Complex starts it's survey a half hour before 
legal sundown, way later than 3:30. I think the Montezuma timing is 
based on a lot of previous experience so the short-ears near the winery 
seem to be the exception.

Thanks so much to the listserve,

John Confer

I will have my cell phone (607-229-5952) with me throughout the day with 
the trip leaving at 1:00 (not 2:00 as I thought earlier).

Re: [cayugabirds-l] One special hunting season and two management proposals -black bear and Mute Swan.

2014-01-29 Thread Linda Orkin
Just wanted to let everyone know that there are indeed two sides to the
issue of killing all Mute Swans. Here is a link which I received.

http://www.goosewatchnyc.com/mute-swan-plan/

Perhaps there is no truths on this analysis, however...

Given the DEC's NYS management policies towards Coyotes, no daily bag
limit, can be killed day and night and fair game for hunting contests,  I
am very inclined to dislike their policies.

 Hello,
 The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation has issued the following
 press
 release:

 Special Deer Hunting Season in Central Tompkins County to Help Control
 Local Deer
 Population

 Deer Management Focus Area Open Until January 31, 2014

 A special deer hunting season to help control the deer population in and
 around the
 city of Ithaca, Tompkins County, will be open until January 31, 2014, State
 Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Regional Director Ken Lynch
 announced
 today.

 The Deer Management Focus Area (DMFA) program was initiated in 2012 in the
 Ithaca
 area to expand the use of hunting to assist local communities burdened with
 overabundant deer populations. The DMFA encompasses 60,000 acres of land
 in and
 around the city of Ithaca, including the city and town of Ithaca, the
 villages of
 Cayuga Heights and Lansing, and parts of the towns of Danby, Caroline,
 Dryden,
 Lansing, Enfield, Newfield and Ulysses.

 During the special January season in the DMFA, registered hunters are
 authorized to
 shoot two antlerless deer per day using a shotgun, muzzleloader, handgun,
 or bow (if
 they have bowhunting eligibility). Hunters must still comply with all state
 trespassing laws, as well as all applicable local ordinances governing the
 discharge
 of firearms.

 To participate, hunters must register with the DMFA program and download a
 permit,
 carcass tags and a hunting activity log. Both the DMFA permit and carcass
 tags must
 be carried while hunting in the DMFA and are valid only within the DMFA.
 All DMFA
 hunters must record their deer hunting activity and harvests on the
 hunting activity
 log regardless of their success or hunting activity level, and are
 required to
 submit the log form to DEC by February 7. Instructions are provided on the
 permit
 and log form.

 For additional information about the DMFA, including a map of the DFMA
 that includes
 boundaries, a description of available hunting lands, or to register and
 download a
 permit, carcass tags and a hunting activity log .

 A New NYSDEC Press Release Has Been Issued: DEC Releases Two Draft Species
 Management Plans
 01/16/2014
 Hello,
 The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation has issued the following
 press
 release:

 DEC Releases Two Draft Species Management Plans

 Plans Will Guide Management of Black Bears and Mute Swans for the Next Ten
 Years

 The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today
 released
 draft species management plans for black bears and mute swans, and will be
 accepting
 public comments on these management plans through January 31, 2014.

 Wildlife management can present challenges in trying to balance
 populations,
 hunting opportunities and environmental impacts, Commissioner Martens
 said. These
 plans will guide the management of these species for the next 10 years,
 and we
 encourage people to review and submit comments on the draft plans.

 These management plans also reflect Governor Cuomo's NY Open for Hunting
 and Fishing
 Initiative, an effort to improve recreational activities for in-state and
 out-of-state sportsmen and sportswomen and to boost tourism opportunities
 throughout
 the state. This initiative includes the streamlining of hunting and fishing
 licensing and reducing license fees, improved access for fishing at
 various sites
 across the state, and increasing hunting opportunities in various regions.

 Black Bears

 The draft Black Bear Management Plan for New York State, 2014-2024 is
 available on
 the DEC website.. Black bears are a very popular wildlife species among
 the general
 public, but can pose significant challenges when the bears become too
 abundant or
 are acting boldly in populated areas.

 DEC's draft plan describes five primary goals that reflect the current
 priorities of
 bear managers and desires expressed by the public:

 maintain bear populations at levels acceptable to the public;
 promote and enhance bear hunting as an important management tool;
 minimize the frequency and severity of human-bear conflicts;
 foster understanding and communication about bear ecology, management, and
 conflict
 avoidance; and
 ensure the necessary resources are available to 

[cayugabirds-l] bird hydration

2014-01-29 Thread Eben McLane
I’m sure someone knows how birds in the wild stay hydrated in a prolonged cold 
snap, such as we’re experiencing. I know that sunflower seeds in feeders 
provide some moisture, but I can’t see any main water sources around my house 
that aren’t frozen solid. (I live just above Owasco Lake, and even the entire 
lake is frozen over this year, as are the waterfall tributaries.) Do birds 
“drink” snow in some way? 

I’d be grateful for information about this.

I've also seen chickadees hovering to sip from melting icicles.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] bird hydration

2014-01-29 Thread Linda Orkin

 
 It is my understanding that it uses much energy for birds to convert snow to 
 water. Which is why it is advisable and beneficial to provide liquid water to 
 a bird in winter who may already be very close to an energy deficit. 
 
 And one of my favorite ever pictures of Marie's is of a chickadee hovering 
 for a drip of water from the tip of an icicle.

[cayugabirds-l] Video of Auburn crows

2014-01-29 Thread John and Fritzie Blizzard
This video of Auburn crows (click on the word link below) is just a tiny bit of 
what we see each evening as foraging crows return to Auburn to roost. It's an 
unbelieveable sight. Think the flights in Ithaca can compare?
