[cayugabirds-l] new yard bird

2018-04-17 Thread Bill Mcaneny
Just had a first in the yard---a Great Blue Heron.  And we don't have a
pond.  The biggest squall of the day just passed, having brought a pretty
dense snowfall.  The GBH may have become disoriented and just picked a
landing spot with no trees or brush to cause a hazardous landing.  This
morning a flock of about 200 Cedar Waxwings spent 15 minutes inspecting the
tallest trees around the field.  Weird day.  Snow all day but none on the
ground until the latest squall.

Yesterday's report of the WESTERN MEADOWLARK should say first county report for 
Wayne County and not Seneca County.

*I want to express great gratitude for the Spring Field Ornithology field
trips and their leaders! *
I took it the first time last year and am taking it again this year. I am
delighted and surprised to find myself able to identify more and more birds
just in my own out back!
Thank you!!!

[cayugabirds-l] Hermit Thrush/Fox Sparrow

2018-04-17 Thread W. Larry Hymes
This morning as I casually looked out our bay window to see how the 
birds were doing, a bird landed on our clothesline pole.  I could tell 
it was different from the others, so when I looked through binocs,  it 
turned out to be a HERMIT THRUSH.  This is an unusual bird for our 
residential location.  Anthropomorphizing this bird, it had a surprised 
look on its face as though saying, "Where the heck am I?!?  I must have 
taken a wrong turn somewhere?"  It only stayed momentarily.


Today we still have a FOX SPARROW (visual and singing), and yesterday we 
had 3 show up!  That makes 6 days they've been here --- in the past they 
have normally only stayed for a couple days.  I'm assuming the weather 
patterns have a big part to do with this --- stalled fronts to our north 
and no big push from the south to help/encourage them to move on?  Any 
thoughts about this from you professional or amateur meteorologists?


Larry

[cayugabirds-l] W. Meadowlark

2018-04-17 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
Good morning all- I'm interested in tracking down the original spotter for the 
Western meadowlark on Armitage Rd. I'm curious as to how it was identified 
initially and how it was determined it was  Western vs Eastern. What a neat 
sighting for our neck of the woods.

Has anyone seen/heard it in the last 24 hours?

Thanks! GOOD birding lately, huh?
