There is a Red-tailed hawk nest not far from the owls' nest.  We have photos 
of the owls from Friday evening, April 17.

Hi,

I saw the GHO on the nest today.

couple of weeks ago.

 I was there myself on Friday morning when the owls were definitely in

Well that is totally bizarre, because some friends of mine said they saw 
the GH Owls on that nest Saturday afternoon (I think) and I was there 
myself on Friday morning when the owls were definitely in residence.


What happened?

 The warbler team had a moderately good day. We did not find many 
migrants: one White-throated Sparrow as we were leaving the Lab and then 
a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker calling as we got into the cars. The swan pen 
at Stewart Park had few birds and the waterfront produced the more 
common waterfowl. An ornithology class from Binghamton did find a Ruddy 
Duck, which we missed. We heard and saw Fish Crow, at least 5 around the 
picnic tables near the band shelter.  We did hear the wheesey call and 
see glimpses of two Blue-gray Gnatcatchers along the west band of Fall 
Creek.

 Jetty Woods had ~30 cormorants distributed among two trees with a lot 
of guano beneath them, suggesting several days stay. We had a fine view 
of a flicker singing, if you call it that, and then later the same bird 
on the ground, apparently eating ants.



 Perhaps most enjoyably, we found a White-breasted Nuthatch pair 
carrying material into a cavity in the end of a large, broken branch 
along the south end of Jetty Woods. One bird actually removed some 
material from the nest, which reminded me of trying to move furniture to 
please my wife.



A nice morning of birding.

[cayugabirds-l] injured banded pigeon

2014-09-23 Thread Dave Bulatek Teresa Wagner Bulatek
There is a multi-colored pigeon walking along West Northview Rd, off 
Coddington, banded, can't seem to fly but quite tame.  It was here yesterday, 
barely walking according to the person who saw it yesterday.  I couldn't find 
it when I got home yesterday, and he called the Lab of O and was told his 
message would be passed along to someone.

It is still here.  I have a pic of it if someone wants me to text it to them.  
Not sure what else to do.

The person who called Lab of O yesterday is back in town today, and we just 
tried to find it - he had an appt he could not miss yesterday so told me about 
it.  Can't find it right now, but Victoria described how to catch it and where 
to take it, so I have a towel and box ready if it appears again today or 
tomorrow.

  I have spoken with this gentleman and offered to send him to the Vet School.  
He just wanted to do the right thing to let someone know and didn't want to 
take it any further.  I passed his concern to Victoria Campbell who was looking 
into it.  Thank you.

[cayugabirds-l] warblers, Ithaca South Hill

2014-05-10 Thread Dave Bulatek Teresa Wagner Bulatek
male and female Blackburnian warbler
male and female Yellow-rumped warbler

Both pairs of birds were really working on the catkins of the river birch near 
our deck.  One went briefly to the mixed-seed feeder on the deck but left as 
soon as a goldfinch arrived.

We have not seen these before, though, of course, they may have been here many 
times.  That's always an interesting question we have - is a first for us also 
a first for the birds visiting our yard?  We assume we've just never found them 
before.

Re: Orioles and trumpet vines

2009-08-11 Thread Dave Bulatek Teresa Wagner Bulatek
We have just seen this happening - by both an either immature or female 
oriole and a male oriole in our yellow trumpet vine - at different times in 
one day.   They hammered into the base of the bloom at different angles; the 
bloom usually dropped off eventually.  They then either dropped down to that 
bloom on the ground or started a new one.   It's a very different from the 
gentle nodding of vine branches as the hummingbirds work their way through!

An immature oriole (Baltimore or Orchard--I'm not sure which--any tips on 
identifying them would be appreciated) has been shredding the flowers on 
our Trumpet vine--presumably to get at the nectar. Today I saw a humming 
bird chase it!


Has anyone else seen this behavior? This is the first time I've noticed 
it.
