[cayugabirds-l] Hudsonian Godwit at Eaton Marsh on Saturday

2015-09-27 Thread Diane Morton
I had a good trip up to Montezuma yesterday, and got to see the Hudsonian
Godwit for a couple of minutes at about noon before it took off flying to
the north.

The bird was at the beginning of Eaton Marsh on Wildlife Drive, and I took
a few photos of it before it flew.  Because this is only my second
Hudsonian Godwit ever, I was feeling rather insecure about the ID; I
realize how much more fun it is to have Ken (my husband and usual birding
partner) along for joint confirmation and celebration of new birds.  Alas,
he is out of town and missed this bird.
The long, upturned, bicolored bill of the godwit was very distinctive, and
when the bird flew it had a striking white stripe across the tail. It
looked to be a Juvenile Hudsonian Godwit, when I compare to Sibley's
illustrations. I later shared the photo with Jay who confirmed the ID,
making me feel much more confident about posting about it here. I included
two photos of the godwit with my ebird list for Wildlife Drive yesterday.

I had stopped earlier at East Road to look out on Knox-Marcellus after
receiving Jay's RBA about a Hudsonian Godwit there.  But the few shorebirds
were so distant from that vantage point, that I headed over to Wildlife
Drive.  However, Gary K stayed at East Rd and texted that he had found the
Hudsonian Godwit at Knox-Marcellus-- about 20 minutes before I came upon
the one at Wildlife Drive. Two birds?

There were Black-bellied Plovers both at the visitor's center and at Eaton
Marsh.  I was also pleased to see a greater variety of ducks along Wildlife
Drive.  Where we had seen only Wood Ducks on the left side of the drive
last week, yesterday there were Gadwall, American Wigeon and one Pintail.

On my way up to Montezuma, I stopped at Myers Point.  There the most
surprising bird was a female RING-NECKED PHEASANT, on the gravel shore with
the Gulls!  This was on the curved portion of the shore.  The pheasant saw
me moving for my camera and ducked out of sight. A few minutes later I went
near the flagpole for a different angle on the cove area, but I did not see
the pheasant again.

It was a good day to be out birding!

[cayugabirds-l] GHO calling from game farm road

2015-09-27 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
I went to East Hill Athletic field to look at the moon. It was beautiful as it 
was getting out of the cloud. There was a Great Horned Owl calling along with a 
couple of Killdeer.

[cayugabirds-l] Two more GHOs

Right from my yard since last ten minutes i have been hearing two more GHOs 
calling from Six Mile Creek.
And the moon is almost half devoured by the earth, at least that is what we 
were told when young.

2015-09-27 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
I heard one call which sounded to me like Rose-breasted Grosbeak. So I noted 
the time to see if anything was recorded at the same time on my detector. But 
nothing was recorded by mic. I was probably 15 to 20 feet away from the mic in 
the horizontal direction. So I am not sure if the bird was too far to be heard 
by the mic.


But Great Horned Owl went on for almost an hour.
