[cayugabirds-l] Advice on attracting a screech owl

2021-05-07 Thread Barbara B. Eden
I  just ordered an Owl house with great hopes of attracting them to my 
backyard.  There is a mature canopy
 ( I live in Cayuga Heights) and I am looking for pointers on the best path to 
success.
I assume this is late in the season for Owls but hope to attach it next week.
This is the one I ordered

[cayugabirds-l] Baltimore Oriole question

2020-06-15 Thread Barbara B. Eden
For the first time ever in my Cayuga Heights yard, I have had a pair of 
Baltimore Orioles still feeding at my jelly feeder. In previous years they are 
just here for a few days.
I am hoping since they have stayed (for at least 6 weeks ) they are nesting 
nearby
Any thoughts on this from birders more knowledgeable than me

Thanks,

[cayugabirds-l] Viewing the snow geese at the top of Cayuga Lake

2019-03-21 Thread Barbara B. Eden
On Wednesday there were fabulous views on the north end of Cayuga lake off of 
Lower lake road (south of Wolfies). It was fun to watch the red heads and 
buffle heads on the perimeter of the thousands of geese acting like herders
We also went to the muck lands and Knox  Marcellus marsh and there were only a 
couple of hundred

[cayugabirds-l] 6/20 Cleanup at Salt Point

2015-06-01 Thread Barbara B. Eden
We're excited about all the developments and community interest at Salt Point 
this season. We have many new visitors enjoying the area, the north beach 
vehicle access/parking project is shaping up nicely, and a team from Cargill 
recently spent a day covering invasive knotweed, planting trees, and moving 
utility poles. Soon we should see osprey chicks, new Leopold benches, and a 
carpet of wildflowers along the water's edge.
 The Town of Lansing Parks  Recreation Department and many volunteers 
contribute significantly to the improvement of the area, but we still need help 
to keep Salt Point beautiful and accessible to all (including wildlife!).
 Please join us Saturday, June 20, 9 a.m. to Noon for Volunteer Day at Salt 
Point.
 You're welcome to join us for all or part of the morning. A sample of the 
tasks we're planning:
1) Trash pick-up and removal
2) Knotweed control
3) Trail maintenance
4) Tree maintenance, incl. trimming  watering
5) Weeding
6) Mulching

We'll set up an organizing area at the DEC parking lot (on the left as you 
enter Salt Point Rd., just before the railroad tracks).
Please bring gardening tools, gloves, buckets, etc.
We'll have water and light refreshments.

If possible, please email RSVP to our Volunteer Day Coordinator, Katrina 
Binkewicz, klb1...@hotmail.commailto:klb1...@hotmail.com

It is much larger but it is only for pedestrians and birds are close to the

[cayugabirds-l] No Snow Geese off Lower Lake ZRoad

2014-04-01 Thread Barbara B. Eden
On this glorious day we took a drive hoping to see flocks of  Snow Geese on the 
shallow waters at  this
northern point of Cayuga Lake. Much to my surprise, the lake was still quite 
frozen and the only waterfowl were small groups of Red heads and Canvas Backs 
on the small areas of open water.
I wonder if they have skipped the lake entirely this  year.

[cayugabirds-l] Thank you all for the reports of the Snow Geese Movement

2012-12-28 Thread Barbara B. Eden
On Monday 12/24 I went to see them up the lake on Lake Road.. It was 
spectacular.
And now that we finally have snow on the ground I have endless birds at my 
feeders. 
Mostly Cardinals, Chickadees, and white breasted nut hatches.

Best,

[cayugabirds-l] House Finch and Junco behavior question

2012-08-06 Thread Barbara B. Eden
One morning last week I observed a female house finch and a junco passing to 
each other sunflower seeds that were on the ground on my patio.  I was 
surprised to see this type of behavior. I was wondering if this is unusual 
since this is the first time I have seen this type of cooperation.
Thanks,
Barbara Eden

[cayugabirds-l] Pileated Woodpecker Mating Dance

2012-05-27 Thread Barbara B. Eden
On Sat. when I went to my mailbox on North Sunset Drive Ithaca, I noticed that 
my neighbors had a spotting scope aimed on a tree trunk. There were 2 Pileated 
Woodpeckers scurrying up and down the tree. I was told that they had been there 
for a least one hour. I got my binocs and watched for  around 10 minutes and 
ultimately they chased each other to the ground and flew off. What a thrill on 
a glorious gardening day.

Best,
Barbara

[cayugabirds-l] Restoring Wetlands Near Cayuga Inlet: December 1 7:00pm at TCPL

2011-11-28 Thread Barbara B. Eden
Restoring Wetlands Near Cayuga Inlet:  Presentation December 1

A program to be held December 1 will present results of research showing how 
Cayuga Inlet wetlands lost over the past two centuries might be restored.
The Tompkins County Environmental Management Council (EMC) recently reviewed 
written records, aerial photographs, and maps to determine the extent of 
wetland loss in the vicinity of the Cayuga Inlet during the past 200 years. 
Wetlands can reduce flooding and erosion, act as a sedimentary trap, improve 
water quality, and provide wildlife habitat. Wetlands have been lost during 
this period primarily as the result of the use of dredged materials to fill 
those wetlands adjacent to the Inlet and from increased land development in the 
Elmira Road/Taughannock Boulevard area flood plain.
The EMC will sponsor a program “Cayuga Inlet Dredge Material: Opportunities for 
Restoring Ecosystem Functions and Services” on Thursday, December 1, 7:00 – 
9:00 p.m., in the Borg Warner Room of the Tompkins County Public Library, 101 
E. Green Street, Ithaca. Cornell University Associate Professor Tom Whitlow and 
his fall semester students in Restoration Ecology will present the results of 
their research. 
The class will also report on their trip to observe the Baltimore Harbor 
dredging project. That dredged material is being utilized to restore Poplar 
Island located 34 miles south of Baltimore in the Chesapeake Bay. The island, 
formerly approximately 1,000 acres in size in the early 1800s, had shrunk, due 
to erosion, to three small parcels of less than 10 acres. Today it is 1,140 
acres and expanding, consisting of half wetlands and half uplands of valuable 
wildlife habitat.
A display of aerial photographs and maps will be available for inspection 
during the program.
The EMC is a citizen board that advises the Tompkins County Legislature on 
matters relating to the environment and does not necessarily express the views 
of the Tompkins County Legislature.

Contact: Brian Eden, Tompkins County Environmental Management Council,
