Within last hour our first hummingbird arrived on our waiting HB feeder! 
And what a strange weather day it was..

[cayugabirds-l] Big flock of American Goldfinches!

2020-05-09 Thread Kathleen P Kramer
Hi,

We usually have quite a few American Goldfinches that seem to be residents, 
often year-round. Today, however, our feeders were overwhelmed! At least a 
hundred, maybe 150, were at the feeders and settled about on the yard. When 
they took flight, as they occasionally did, and then returned, it looked as if 
many of the dandelions that dot our lawn were flying! We’ve lived in this house 
for 27 years and have never seen them in these numbers! It was very beautiful 
and very exciting!

Can anyone share thoughts about this new-to-us happening?

Thanks,
Kathy Kramer

The killdeer nesting in my riding ring hatched their eggs either yesterday 
evening or early this morning. There were 3 chicks running around with the 
parents today.

[cayugabirds-l] Black Tern at Ithaca reservoir

2020-05-09 Thread Gary Kohlenberg
I apologize for the late email. This morning I found a Black Tern feeding and 
fluttering around the Ithaca Reservoir off Burns Rd. where it crosses Six Mile 
creek. They are quite uncommon away from Montezuma, although sometimes seen 
flying up Cayuga Lake during migration. 
It could be seen from the bridge over the creek. Sometimes it perches during 
the snow squalls on the island so may be out of view. 

Happy winter like birding, 
Gary
