[cayugabirds-l] Around Ithaca, Sun 3/27

2016-03-27 Thread Mark Chao
Some signs of spring around Ithaca on Sunday:



* Two or three FOX SPARROWS on the brushy slope in the Newman Arboretum –
two heard singing (audible clear across the pond), one seen kicking around
under dense cover



* One FOX SPARROW at Palmer Woods, singing unseen at the corner of brush
closest to the steepest sledding path



* One EASTERN TOWHEE calling at Palmer Woods



* One male PURPLE FINCH at our feeder in northeast Ithaca



* Many GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS in both Palmer Woods and the hemlocks of the
Arboretum, plus more at the von Engeln Preserve in Malloryville



plus at least three Eastern Commas basking and chasing each other  in the
Malloryville preserve – the first butterflies I’ve seen this year.

[cayugabirds-l] Raven correction and update

2016-03-27 Thread AB Clark
Yesterday, 26 March, I reported watching a raven sitting beside a yard at 
junction of Neimi Road and Hanshaw Road.  (I also spelled Neimi incorrectly).  
Actually it was on the S side of intersection of ETNA and Hanshaw, where there 
are actually houses.

Today, 27 March, at about 11 am, just barely S of yesterday’s perch, a raven 
was at the side of Hanshaw, eating a roadkill.  Is it in residence near there?  
Unfortunately I am unable to identify the raven as the same one.

And just when I didn't think I could get a better woodcock video, I got
this last night:

I also put up the original MP4's as recorded by the ThermAppPlus camera
here:

for anyone who may be distracted by Facebook's streaming artifacts or
whatever.

[cayugabirds-l] Red-shouldered Hawk

2016-03-27 Thread Geo Kloppel
A Red-shouldered Hawk is calling loudly from across the stream in the ravine 
along Maple Avenue (the "West Branch of West Danby Creek" on some maps).

I'm getting Wood Ducks on my pond every morning. A couple of days ago six of 
them dropped in at 6:50am. When they take off, they generally head straight 
toward the bigger ponds close by, in the Lindsay-Parsons Preserve where they 
breed - at the West Danby Fire Station, Coleman Lake, etc.

This looks like a day to get up high and watch the sky!
