[cayugabirds-l] A few spots left- 2 birding tours w/ Montezuma Audubon this week

2021-05-04 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
Good afternoon!

There are several spots left in the two tours we are offering this week. The 
weather does look cooler, but according to the forecast we should hopefully 
avoid the rain with the timing of the tours. Please see below for more 
information, and where to register.

Wednesday 5/5 at 1-3:30 PM 
https://act.audubon.org/a/montezuma-bird-watching-tour-5521

Friday 5/7 at 5-7:30 PM 
https://act.audubon.org/a/montezuma-bird-watching-tour-5721

The spring months are a fantastic time to visit the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. 
Come along as we explore some popular birding hot spots and look for an amazing 
array of bird species like warblers, orioles, grosbeaks, and so many more! 
Participants will drive their own vehicle and receive a conference call phone 
number to hear the Audubon educator narrate the tour and ask questions between 
stops.

To register for one of these tours and to see a complete listing of the 
Montezuma Bird Watching Tour dates, please visit our website:

[cayugabirds-l] Golden-winged warbler!

2021-05-04 Thread Jessica Kerns
I arrived home from a very quiet morning birding Shindagin Hollow and the 
Hawthorne Orchard to find my backyard completely full of song. Much to my 
surprise, among the constant sound of blue-winged warbler was a singing male 
golden-winged warbler! He was kind enough to stick around for me to record his 
song and get a few pics. Definitely a new yard bird. Maybe he liked what he saw 
and will be back!
Happy birding,

[cayugabirds-l] Virginia Rail

2021-05-04 Thread Geo Kloppel
A hidden Virginia Rail gave me a grunt display at ridiculously close range 
(10’?) this morning in Michigan Hollow marsh, Danby (not to be confused with 
the North Spencer Marsh near the south end of Michigan Hollow Road, where BTW 
the bridge is closed).

[cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Blackburnian, Red-shouldered

2021-05-04 Thread Suan Yong
Hawthorn was really quiet this morning by the time I met Ken and Diane by the 
softball field looking for a handful of singing Nashville Warblers, who seemed 
the most numerous or at least vociferous. After a quiet walk through the north 
trail we heard a Blackburnian singing from the pine trees to the north, and 
after some patient staring and scanning that corner of the woods woke up, with 
a red-breasted nuthatch, ruby-crowned kinglets seemingly everywhere, and the 
Blackburnian eventually putting on a good show. Yesterday's black-throated 
green and chestnut-sided were apparently still there though silent today, and a 
surprise appearance by a yellow-throared vireo who eventually sang a few single 
phrases of its song. The "big sit" strategy (standing in one spot) seemed to 
work really well, as white throated sparrows started foraging in the leaf 
litter all around us.

After leaving Ken and Diane to head back to work, I heard from the nw pond the 
repeated call of a red-shouldered hawk which eventually moved in a westerly 
direction and stopped before I could get visual confirmation. The call was 
quite steady and consistent, making me think it wasn't from one of the blue 
jays hanging around.
