Snowy owl off Rt96A and Woodworth Rd just south of Geneva. Sitting on top of

Two days ago, I went to the CLO Observatory on lunch break and watched a lone
American Crow, moving around on the pond ice (30’ away so easy to watch with
binocs), selecting morsels of ice (small balls it appeared) and ingesting them.
Later it moved over to an area where there were black bits,
I encourage folks on the listserv to consider this issue carefully
and to provide comments to DEC during this period when the agency is seeking
public comment. A word of caution, though. As I am sure all of you can
appreciate, issues like this are rather complex -- they are
The chickadees around our yard love to hover sip the maple-sap icicles that
form on a red maple when the sap has started running. It's quite sweet, I have
tasted it! Hydration and energy all in one.

Those thousands surely would be reassuring if I were a crow worried about
being The One to be eaten by The Owl tonight! Lottery chance converging on
Fortunately for Ithaca's attitude toward crows, the flights into Ithaca

I just witnessed an adult Peregrine attack a Red-tailed hawk from my office
window. The clash went on for approximately 3 minutes. First both of them were
in the air and tumbled a few times. Then the Red-tailed decided to alight on
one of the pipes of USDA building and stay put. Peregrine

Bob McGuire just called to say he has an EARED GREBE off Ladoga at Myers
Point. I was there earlier this morning and didn't see this bird, but I did
have a basic adult RED-NECKED GREBE, reported yesterday by David Weber and
others, off the Myers marina this morning, as well as good waterfowl
Just now a Cooper's Hawk flew across the window at less than 10 feet away!
Looks like a day of the raptors. About an hour ago the Red-tailed was scaring
away hordes of starlings that were in front of the green houses on Tower road.
They flew in nice patterns as the hawk mingled among them.
I always look up in the big old cherry tree behind my house when I leave
each morning, still missing the flock of Crows that used to frequent my
yard, until they got chased away by another flock. This is where they used
to perch, waiting for me to put peanuts out for them. A new flock,
Saw the MERGANSERS again yesterday, and I have a correction. They are RED

Yesterday around 9:30 a.m. I was cruising around Ovid and Interlaken
looking for snowies. I did not find any, but I did see a SEOW, on Center
Road just east of CR129, quietly perched atop a stalk in the corn field. It
was a gorgeous sunny day and I was surprised to see it.

I was there and saw the eared. Also found 2 RED-NECKED GREBES after Bob left.
To me, the eared didn't look like the one at Aurora, so we met there later and
found only HORNED GREBES off the Boathouse. After a fine lunch at Dories, I
headed down to Long Point SP and found the Aurora EARED
Well said, Jody. In addition to the passion for birds which people bring to the listserv, I really appreciate the knowledge which people share (I find this especially helpful to correct my tendency toward speculation). If you have sites in mind, Jody, where we can get more factual info than the

Having seen/heard 96 new birds so far for the year, I started out today
thinking, maybe, I could find 100 for the month of January. (Silly game - but
it gets me outside!)
I hung around a private feeder until 9 am when the Purple Finch showed up.
Beautiful male, backlit by the sun. #97.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. Very insightful and helpful. I agree
with your position.
