2015-03-15 Thread Donna Scott
I too have seen several corpses of waterfowl here, including a pure white tundra swan a few beaches north of mine on Lansing Station Rd. 3 days ago masses of broken ice from north of my previously open water area were blown in by the wind and piled up noisily on shore on any beach structure

I am still puzzled by - and have to apologize for - what happened to my post of yesterday morning regarding the bohemian. I am guessing that something went awry with Clarity’s email server - as I just now began to receive messages again (after almost 24 hrs without). As Jay mentioned, I could

I startled an Amer Pipit as I walked up to the lighthouse, and it flew up in front of me landed on ice not too far out. No sign of the tufted duck, but I also hit a spot of rain that made viewing difficult. Also, forgot to grab my gloves, and my hands were freezing. Coots, herring, great

[cayugabirds-l] Dryden Lake area

2015-03-15 Thread Susan Fast
I checked the Dryden Lake area later yesterday afternoon.  The lake is still frozen; the walking trail looks rough with slushy snow.  As an alternative to looking over an expanse of water (Cayuga Lake), one could stop along Purvis Rd. and gaze over an almost unlimited expanse of cow poop.

While cleaning up the yard yesterday, I found a dead cooper's hawk under our forsythia bushes (my grandson had reported a big bird hunting sparrows a while back). Heavily horizontally streaked breast, rounded tail. One would have thought that the English sparrow population would have kept it

While letting the dog out just now, I was surprised by a Northern Saw-whet Owl calling from the northern section of the Village of Lansing Greenway that ends at the Bomax Rd. fields. The vocalization lasted for about 15 seconds, paused for about 10, and then resumed for another 10 seconds or so,
