[cayugabirds-l] overnight arrivals

2014-05-04 Thread Bill Mcaneny
Hurrah! The west side of the lake finally catches up with the rest of the
basin. This morning between 7:45 and 8:00 in quick succession we had a male
Baltimore ORIOLE, Purple Finches (3 females), and White-Crowned Sparrow, all
seen while I was seated at the breakfast table.  Easy viewing, but it seemed
like a long wait. Now we are waiting for the first hummingbird.  The feeder
has been up for a week.

[cayugabirds-l] Productive morning walk in Lansing

2014-05-04 Thread Jason Huck
This morning I walked the yard and old farm pond patch behind the house and 
found a YELLOW WARBLER, two YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERs, a BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER and 
a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER (new patch bird) in the hardwoods and willows along 
the pond. Calling beside them was a GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER (also a new patch 
bird). Also great looks in the open underbrush of a singing WOOD THRUSH. 

Just as I finished my walk, the sun broke through the dark clouds and the woods 
really seemed to come alive!

[cayugabirds-l] Goetchius - beautiful morning - Am Bittern

2014-05-04 Thread John Confer
7:00-8:00 AM

Aside from one previous report of a calling Am. Bittern for Goetchius, aided by 
a very flexible boundary, this was the first AM BI sighting within the 
Goetchius and actually this was in the NY DOT portion of the wetland, that I 
have heard about.



A female Harrier coursing over the northwestern portions of the Preserve to go 
along with Marie's earlier report of a male two days ago. I wonder?



5 E. Meadowlarks, including a pair with one carrying a considerable amount of 
nest material to the ground.



2 Solitary Sandpiper



at least 3 Lesser Yellowlegs



2 Greater Yellowlegs



at least 5 Common Snipe, including one winnowing courtship flight.



Only 2 singing male Savannah Sparrows.



-

Three Brown Thrasher Friday, two on IC campus and one in front yard. An 
unusually high number for me. How nice.



John

[cayugabirds-l] Major fallout??

2014-05-04 Thread W. Larry Hymes
Did we have a major fallout last night?  We just had 4, that's right, 4 
male ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK come to our feeder all at the same time!!!  
Also, I think I had a GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH pop in briefly.  It did not 
stay long, maybe 10 seconds.  I think it looked around and must have 
said to itself -- Where the heck am I?  This isn't where I wanted to be!!

[cayugabirds-l] Home Again

2014-05-04 Thread bob mcguire
I arrived back in the Basin yesterday after a month in the field. And it seemed 
like a good morning to take a couple of walks. Birding today was like going out 
on January first - almost all of the birds were year birds for me.

The trails at Sapsucker Woods produced a bundle of new birds: Eastern Phoebe 
(2), Yellow Warbler (4), Palm Warbler (2), Northern Waterthrush (3), Baltimore 
Oriole, Spotted Sandpiper, Least Flycatcher, Wood Thrush, Swamp Sparrow, and 
Rusty Blackbird. The Rusty was interesting. It was seen from the Sherwood 
Platform, displaying ( wings and tail spread) and calling.

My second stop was the bottom of Leonard Road. A short walk up and back the 
road produced a number of singing birds: Brown Creeper (2), Black-throated 
Blue, Green, and Black-and-White Warblers, Ovenbird, Blue-Headed Vireo, and 
Swainson's Thrush (2). The Swainson's were foraging in the leaf litter 
alongside the road, giving a high-pitched whistle call. My main target there 
was Louisiana Waterthrush - which was surprisingly absent, or at least not 
singing today.

The big surprise was that spring here is not further along. Honeysuckle in 
leaf, yes, and the willows are greening. But very little red showing on the 
maples. I guess that there's time still for a few new birds. And so, as I type, 
two White-crowned Sparrows are scratching under the feeder.

[cayugabirds-l] NE Ithaca, Sun 5/4

2014-05-04 Thread Mark Chao
En route to the Lab of Ornithology on Sunday morning, Miyoko, Tilden and I
saw a male INDIGO BUNTING in the power line corridor off Warren Road between
Uptown Road and Route 13.  

 

In Sapsucker Woods, we found very few of the birds that Bob reported, nor
any of various other interesting finds that folks mentioned to us on the
trail.  But we did feel plenty gratified with excellent views of 10+
foraging RUSTY BLACKBIRDS in all plumages (most striking was a female still
bearing very fresh feathers, including a completely russet back) in the deep
puddles near the Wilson/West intersection.  I think that a couple dozen more
of this species could well have been present, as we heard their singing
everywhere along the southwestern margin of the pond.

 

We also saw a pair of NORTHERN WATERTHRUSHES attacking and ousting a mink.
The waterthrushes stayed and foraged in peace together below our eye level
for several minutes, merely 5 meters away, with the male pausing now and
then to throw his head back and peal out a Woodleton-accented song.

A few new birds in the yard this morning, including a YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, 
which was a surprise, both for the early date and the location. I believe it is

[cayugabirds-l] Grosbeak

2014-05-04 Thread Carol Keeler
I've been watching my very busy feeders for much of the afternoon and finally a 
male Rose Breasted Grosbeak showed up!  He's sitting up in a maple tree 
overlooking the feeders but hasn't come down to one yet. Now he's come down to 
the ground to feed.
  I still have both White Throated and White Crowned Sparrows.  My predominate 
birds are Goldfinches.  No Oriole or Hummingbirds yet, though the feeders are 
out.  I love these birdy days!

[cayugabirds-l] 2 scarlet tanagers

2014-05-04 Thread Michael O. Engle
We saw two stunningly bright male scarlet tanagers on our midday walk. One was 
on South Hill Rec Way about 1/2 mile

east of the Juniper St. entrance (just past the former location of the gate 
across the trail).


The second was on the west side of Water Street below the new valve building 
for the water plant.


Both were nearly finished molting with small but differently-shaped 
light-colored areas toward the back of their otherwise solid scarlet breasts.


The second bird was practically a yard bird for us! A neighborhood bird.

[cayugabirds-l] Lansing migrants and night heron

2014-05-04 Thread Robyn Bailey
A walk around my wooded neighborhood in Myers area of Lansing was very 
rewarding this morning. For warblers, we had Black-and-White, Blackburnian, 
Black-throated Green, Yellow, Nashville, Myrtle, and American Redstart (males 
of all). Other migrants included Warbling Vireo, Eastern Kingbird, Ruby-crowned 
Kinglet, Solitary Sandpiper, Wood Duck, Chipping Sparrow, Northern Mockingbird, 
Gray Catbird, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and Barn Swallow.

At Myers Hill, an Osprey was gathering nest material, and the private pond 
across the road revealed an adult Black-crowned Night Heron (spotted and then 
harassed by grackles) plus a Green Heron. There were also Redheads and 
Blue-winged Teal on the pond, with the coots and mallards.

Some neighbors, spotting our binos, invited us to see the mallard nest on their 
lake-front property in the vicinity of the aforementioned pond (I don't know 
the name of that pond, but it lies along the railroad tracks). The mallard nest 
curiously contained a ladderball piece (two orange balls connected by a rope; 
photo posted to CBC Facebook group). While there, we also saw female Bufflehead.

All together, it is a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

[cayugabirds-l] Red-eyed Vireo

2014-05-04 Thread Geo Kloppel
Took a walk this afternoon around the Fisher Old Growth Forest, which I figured 
would offer some shelter from the gusty northwest wind. Down at the bottom it 
was sunny and warm, and some migrants were actively foraging in the trees along 
the marsh edge. Among the Yellow-rumps and Ruby-crowned Kinglets was one 
Red-eyed Vireo.

Many multiflora roses there are infected.

[cayugabirds-l] RB Grosbeak

2014-05-04 Thread Carol Keeler
Yahoo!  I've now got a second male RB Grosbeak!  He is sitting very still in my 
Wm. Baffin Rose right beneath the sunroom.  I get the feeling he's very tired 
from a long trip here.  I didn't see him come in, so I have no idea how long 
he's been sitting there.  There's plenty of food when he's up to it.  I do 
wonder if we had an influx of them today.  I haven't seen any females yet.  I 
usually have one pair that stays and nests in the scrubby woods along the creek.

[cayugabirds-l] Baldwin (Park) Preserve

2014-05-04 Thread Susan Fast
I walked about the old Baldwin Preserve early this morning.  I found 2 enigmas. 
 I left the preserve to the east, walking down the trail to 6-Mile Creek.  
Towards the bottom was a small bunch of feathers; small ones gray, but several 
longer ones of a deep metallic green color.  One feather I picked up is 12 cm. 
long.  Off hand, I can't think of any local bird having a feather like that. 
Green heron, maybe, but odd place for one to get eaten.
Second, at the swimming hole, I heard the song of a LA. WATERTHRUSH upstream a 
bit.  Then spied a tail-bobbing, bright white-breasted bird on the far bank 
going into a hole under roots.  It came out and was immediately joined by 
another waterthrush who also went into the hole briefly, came out, and the two 
of them walked around close together in the woods.  The second bird had a 
bright yellow chest and belly (N. Waterthrush?) (nest)? While I watched this 
pair, I then heard a LA. WATERTHRUSH singing downstream about 100'.
Sounds like a who-done-it day.

[cayugabirds-l] Glossy Ibis

2014-05-04 Thread Diana
Hi All,
 The Glossy Ibis was still on Carncross by the bridge this early afternoon. It 
was among some Yellowlegs, and some Shovelers. I wonder if there are three 
here. There were two immature Bald Eagles down the river and when one would 
fly, it would flush the Ibis. It seemed pretty intent on its spot. It is still 
distant for photos though I took a couple.  There were a few Great Blue Herons 
as well.
 We had our first bedraggled Rose-breasted Grosbeak this morning at home. Our 
House Wre was heard Friday. Just put a new house up for it.
