[cayugabirds-l] West side Ravens

2019-10-28 Thread Nancy Cusumano
I don't know h ow often you all see Ravens. We have a family up here, see
them pretty much daily so I forget how uncommon they are for most. The
local pair fledged 4 young this year. We see them singly or in pairs
regularly and today one landed in the field across the street, where he was
almost immediately mobbed by Crows.We hear them more than see them.

So if you need a Raven fix, come up to Dubois rd, north end between
Houghton and Kraft. You are likely to see/hear them. Or walk the Black
Diamond Trail.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lots O Loons

2019-10-28 Thread Jay McGowan
We have seen good numbers staging in the middle-north part of the lake this
and last weekend, with a peak in Varick on October Big Day of over 900
visible at once:

As well as many hundred visible from the Lake Road bluffs in Aurora on
Saturday:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S60935449

I have yet to see any good number migrating past Myers though. Yesterday
was the best so far despite strong south winds, with close to 30 moving by
low over the water over the course of an hour or so.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lots O Loons

We tried just south of Taughannock, and from north point. Had only 2 from
the south and none from the northside. They must like Myers better!

[cayugabirds-l] Lots O Loons

2019-10-28 Thread Laura Stenzler
Good afternoon! Cayuga Lake at Myers Park is like glass, making it easy to see 
the 18 Common Loons I just counted. Quite a sight. 
   Now I’m off to Aurora to see if there are still hundreds, as Bob McGuire 
reported yesterday.

[cayugabirds-l] Sunday's Bird Club Trip Up the Lake

2019-10-28 Thread bob mcguire
Ken Kemphues and I led a bird club trip up and around the lake yesterday. 
Actually, we WERE the trip as no one else showed up to brave the rain/wind 
(which ended by the time we got to Aurora). Loons were abundant (including one 
Red-throated seen by Bob) and even more so, the ducks. From the single 
Long-tailed Duck at the visitor’s center to the hundreds of Ring-necked Ducks 
in the main pool to the group of 59 Ruddy Ducks at the north end of the lake, 
we had a great time working through the various stages of plumage (juvenile to 
non-breeding to breeding, and everything in between). We were treated to a 
dance from a pair of Sandhill Cranes and close looks at a feeding American 
Bittern. There will be a full report in the next CBC newsletter.
