Dave Wheeler and I last saw the Willet lastnight at about 7:40pm when it flew to Salt Point and went around the point, out of view from Myers. It did look like it landed on shore there. Jim On Sunday, August 24, 2014, Stuart Krasnoff s...@cornell.edu wrote: No sign of Willet at Myrrs or Salt

I had a long walk up down Salt Road this morning. As was to be expected at this time of year, it was rather quiet bird-wise. Along with the usual chickadees, nuthatches, and Common Yellowthroats I did have a few unexpected and pleasant surprises. Not the goshawk I had hoped for, but a

At 1145, I heard a different bird song from the large maple over the house.  Robin-like series of phrases, each phrase of three parts.  I listened to it sing for about 10 minutes before it flew out into view--about robin sized; large, thick bill; splotched yellow-orange.  Most probably a female

Emphasis on possible, since I couldn't get much of a look. Seemed to have good white eyering and long undertail coverts. It was at the the edge of the woods at the south end of the straight stretch on bluegrass - from the south end of the red barn, walk west 100+ yards. Bird was just past the

I was interested in Dave Nutter’s recent reports on a pair of Carolina wrens that successfully nested in a hanging planter on his back porch. It was just a few days after his first report (7/18) that we noticed Carolina wrens carrying nesting material to a hanging basket of fuchsia suspended

Around 10 this morning (Sunday) I was walking past the field just east of the observatory, where the recently mowed grass was being turned by a tractor. Overhead 3 Common Ravens were wheeling, giving lots of calls, checking out the newly mowed areas for dead (or soon to be dead) things exposed

I had my first ever Carolina Wren nest in a hanging basket of tuberous begonias this summer. One person I told said, Of course you do! They successfully raised and fledged five chicks. They're nesting all over my property in Newfield. I hear the buzzy I'm bringing food sound all day long every
