Re: [cayugabirds-l] Indigo bunting

2018-05-13 Thread Kathleen P Kramer
We’ve been fortunate, too! Here on Stonehaven Circle in Newfield, we have two 
male Indigo Buntings coming regularly to our thistle feeder. They feed quite 
amicably with the Goldfinches. Question: Is it common for two male Indigo 
Buntings to occupy the same territory? We haven’t been watching carefully, but 
we haven’t seen any females yet.

[cayugabirds-l] Bald eagle in Newfield

2018-05-13 Thread Allison Myers
My second incidental Bald Eagle sighting this spring!  This one (another adult) 
flew over Route 13 at the top of the hill in Newfield (between the old gas 
station and the turnoff into the Village), headed uphill (west) from the valley 
below (east of) the road.  S/he was carrying something bloody in her/his talons 
and was being chased by a couple of crows.

Cheers,
Allison Myers

Freeville NY

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Sun 5/13

2018-05-13 Thread Mark Chao
For the past 8 hours (since before 6 AM on Sunday), we have been seeing a
NASHVILLE WARBLER and a pair of YELLOW WARBLERS in our next-door neighbors’
flowering pear tree in northeast Ithaca.  It sure seems like the same three
individual birds, without turnover.



My expectations bolstered a little by that unexpected Nashville Warbler, I
went to Sapsucker Woods to see if any other new birds had arrived
(6:30-8:20 AM).  I did find a few candidates along the Wilson Trail North
-- female CANADA WARBLER, male MAGNOLIA WARBLER, male BLACK-THROATED BLUE
WARBLER, a singing YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, a rather cooperative LINCOLN’S
SPARROW, and a silent LEAST FLYCATCHER, plus what seemed to me to be both
territorial and sojourning AMERICAN REDSTARTS and RED-EYED VIREOS.
Otherwise, throughout the sanctuary on both sides of the road, migrants
seemed very sparse.

[cayugabirds-l] OOB Lawrence’s Warbler @ Logan Hill

2018-05-13 Thread Suan Yong
Went to FLLT’s Logan Hill Preserve in Candor this morning, in the first field 
at the top where the road turns a corner, I heard a blue-winged warbler which I 
got visuals on, and saw a nice black throat and eye triangle on an otherwise 
yellow bird: a Lawrence’s Warbler (Blue-Winged x Golden-Winged hybrid). This 
was around 9:45.

On my way back to the car at 12:00, I did not hear it there, though I did hear 
at least one other blue-winged song farther up the road that I didn’t chase.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Common Nighthawk in Collegetown?

2018-05-13 Thread Geo Kloppel
Hi Tom,

Very likely. The sound of Nighthawks over collegetown (and downtown Ithaca) is 
a fond memory of summer from the sixties and seventies, when they still bred 
here.  

Migrants seem to linger here for a few days, just long enough to make me wonder 
if they might take it up again some year.

-Geo
