[cayugabirds-l] Wood Thrush

2019-05-06 Thread Whitings
Hi All,
 We had a Wood Thrush singing its heart out tonight here in the village of 
Skaneateles. That is a new yard bird. Must be all the trees we have planted 
make things a bit more attractive even if It is only a pit stop. On the other 
hand the Red-breasted Nuthatch pair continues in our yard. I thought they would 
have left by now.

[cayugabirds-l] Loons, Grebes, Gulls

2019-05-06 Thread Dave Nutter
Sunday afternoon (5 May) from the driveway of the Varick Winery on NYS-89 I saw 
on Cayuga Lake close to a hundred Common Loons (including at least 1 still in 
non-breeding plumage), 2 Red-throated Loons (in differing plumages), a pair of 
Red-necked Grebes, 11 Bonaparte’s Gulls, and 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls along 
with a Double-crested Cormorant and a crowd of hopeful Herring Gulls.

[cayugabirds-l] Radar: migration + rain = fallout?

2019-05-06 Thread Dave Nutter
I see, as I get ready for work well before dawn, that the radar shows both 
migration, and in parts of the region, light rain which can cause migrants to 
quit migrating when they hit it. Maybe there will be some migrant fall out.
