Hi All,

Please watch the attached video and message from Bob Beck supporting
the proposed extension of the Jim Schug trail, from Dryden to the East
Ithaca Recreation Way.   When complete the trail will provide access to
many otherwise nearly inaccessible top shelf birding and general nature
observation sites and opportunities, as well as a safe footpath and bike
way connecting Dryden to Ithaca and its large network of trails.

You can voice your support for the trail and the many opportunities it will
provide birders and naturalists by voting once a day until May,12. Please
do so.  We can use all the help we can get.  $50,000 to $100,000 would
go a long way towards making this project a reality.

We had 6 Ravens fly over our home in Richford last night about 8:40 pm. I

headed in the direction of Ithaca.

 Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher 
 
 Today just about 6 o'clock I received a call from Gail Benedict that 
 she was looking at a Scissor-Tailed flycatcher. She was in a small 
 cemetery in Pharsaalia. 
 Go to Lower Cincinnatus, take the Brackle Rd.(Rte. 23) towards Norwich 
 continue a few miles past The Brackle Bar  Grill, the Pharsalia 
 Cemetery will be on the left. 
 The bird was very approachable mostly sitting on a wire fence on the 
 far side of the cemetery. Also there is a pair of Bluebirds using a box 
 in the back corner near where the Scissor-Tailed was hanging out. The 
 bird was still there when we left about 7:30 PM.

I have had a couple of flocks of Red-wings  Grackles around the house and 
briefly at the feeders the last couple of days. I was surprised this morning to 
see a FEMALE Red-Winged Blackbird scratching for spilled seed under a feeder. 
My understanding has been that the males arrive first in early spring, usually 
in large flocks, and claim territories. It is only later that the females 
arrive. 

Has anyone else noticed female Red-wings yet?

The weather radar is showing night migration again now (4-5 April). What's 
moving in, or through, or away? Anybody got your ears to the skies? What will 
be different out there today? Last time there seemed to be an influx of Eastern 
Phoebes, American Robins, Song Sparrows, some other sparrows (Fox, Chipping, 
Field), and Common Loon (I've seen several of the latter from East Shore Park 
and Myers Point the past couple days). But I didn't see or hear about any 
Savannah Sparrows, Vesper Sparrows, Virginia Rails, Black-Crowned Night-Herons, 
Caspian Terns, Common Terns, or Purple Martins. Maybe those will show up 
today.--Dave Nutter

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Hummer in Mecklenberg

2012-09-27 Thread David McCartt
As of yesterday morning we had a female coming to our feeder too.  I think our 
breeders  departed on 9/12 but beginning again on 9/23 we've had one daily, 
with the exception of today (could have just missed seeing it this AM).  I 
suspect this latest bird is a migrant that has chosen to stop and refuel for 
awhile.  It is a noticeably chunkier looking than the birds seen earlier this 
month. Don't know if it is fluffed up due to the temperatures or if it has 
added fat in preparation for migration.

I just heard a Raven gronking as it flew by. I've noticed that occasionally 
someone
will post a sighting and it has me wondering. Just how common ARE they?

We see or hear them every day, and think that there is a nest within a mile or 
so to
our east. Most of the time we see them they are traversing an east/west 
corridor,
seemingly using our road as a flight lane. The young must have fledged as we 
are now
seeing a group of three.

We've always sort of assumed because we see them every day, that they are 
becoming
more common, but maybe not? How often do people see or hear them?

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Red-necked Phalarope and other birds there

2012-05-24 Thread David McCartt
Unfortunately, I did not learn about this Red-necked Phalarope until until last 
night.  I stopped by this morning, 5/24, but alas it was NOT there.  I talked 
to a couple of residents and they had not seen it either today.  I did see 2 
SPOTTED SANDPIPERS and 3 KILLDEER.

This pond has been good for shorebirds since it was created, I just
looked through my eBird reports and the first record I have is a
Lesser Yellowlegs on May 3 and Dunlin on May 5.  I've made this an
eBird hotspot so it'll be easier for everyone to find and enter their
birds.

 I came home from errands to Shannon telling me about Steve's report of a
 Red-necked Phalarope in Brooktondale.  I went right back out

 As of 2 PM the bird was still at the small man made pond on Boiceville Rd,
 having been seen and photographed by a number of people. This is a
 beautiful breeding plumage bird that is very cooperative, coming and
 feeding within 20 yards of people at one point. Aside from the birding
 community there were at least 6 people who lived right there that got very
 good views and were interested in it.

 Thanks Steve for finding and posting this wonderful bird!

 Also there were Killdeer,  a Spotted Sandpiper, and 3 Least Sandpipers that
 I didn't notice until they finally flew.

 The pond itself is only about 3 weeks old. I spoke with one of the
 contractors there and he said it is only 2 feet deep at it's deepest. As
 much as I regret what had been a great field for Woodcocks and field birds
 becoming a small development,  it seems the pond has at least some
 potential..

[cayugabirds-l] Fw: eBird Report - Bowmax Rd, May 3, 2012

2012-05-03 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

I checked out Bomax road at lunch today.  First time I ever walked back to the 
wetland there.  Pretty nice habitat.  In addition to the birds I heard two Gray 
Tree frogs and several trilling American Toads.

Also stopped by Goetchius Wetland this morning.  Quite a few Yellow Warblers 
there and I got great looks at my FOS BOBOLINK.  Only shorebird I found was a 
lone Killdeer.

Good birding,

[cayugabirds-l] Goetchius Wetland, 3/15

2012-03-15 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

I spent a few minutes this morning seeing what was at the preserve. Found at 
least 7 KILLDEER, first I've seen this year, and my personal highlight a 
WILSONS SNIPE.  The snipe was in the open water area at the south end of Flat 
Iron Road.  Lots of blackbirds, one Mallard, 21 Canada Geese and a few SONG 
SPARROWS were also present.

Oh, and at home we had our FOY Song Sparrow.

Good birding,

At last it is really woodcock season in Mecklenburg.  At least 4 individuals 
were peenting and skydancing when I went out at 6 am, audible from every side 
of our house.  I heard them last evening in the rainy dusk, and they may have 
continued all night under
 the bright moon.  Anyone who lives in an open area should go out at twilight 
and listen.  (There were peepers calling from the creek, too.)

[cayugabirds-l] Goetchius Wetland shorebirds

2011-05-17 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

I stopped briefly this morning at Goetchius Wetland and found a nice variety of 
shorebirds.  There was at least one GREATER YELLOWLEGS, KILLDEERS, SEMIPALMATED 
PLOVER, SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, and what I think were LEAST SANDPIPERS.  I had 
SPOTTED SANDPIPERS there last week and would not be surprised if there are 
other species that I did not see or couldn't identify.  This is an area that 
deserves to be checked out more thoroughly and I hope to do so soon!

Good Birding,

Hi Folks,

     What a loony idea. (Just joking)

     The culvert in question is on my commute path and in the last 35 years I 
have passed this area 300 days of the year x 2 for round trips x 35 years. 
Nearly 100% of the time, I look for birds when crossing the culvert, although I 
look at the upstream pond more than running stream on the down hill side of the 
culvert. Even so, I have looked at the downstream side thousands of times and 
even pulled over and stopped to look both ways on hundreds of times. Seeing any 
loon in the stream is unlikely and is a once in many thosands event. Seeing two 
different loons in two weeks, when none had ever been seen before, is possible 
but really unlikely. Still, I wouldn't throw out the possibility. About 15 
years ago the DEC, Karen, and Sandy Padulka rescued three loons from less than 
a mile away in an even smaller pool in a stream following an ice storm that 
made all the fields look like water. Wierd things happen, but not very often.

Cheers,
John

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Goetchius Wetland- Common Loon --looks like same loon as two weeks ago

2011-04-28 Thread David McCartt
I did not see the loon of two weeks ago so I can't speak to any comparisons 
with today's bird.  However, I too find it hard to believe two loons would make 
the same mistake.  I'm still wondering just what kind of mistake was made.  It 
seems unlikely any loon would try to land or take off from this small area of 
water.  More likely a loon would land on the other side of the road where there 
is much more open water.  I wonder, like someone mentioned two weeks ago, if 
the original loon was sucked through the culvert pipe, depositing the bird on 
the east side of the road.  If the pipe diameter is even large enough to pass a 
loon this might explain the wing injury.  If today's bird is a different loon 
the same scenario could explain it's predicament.  There is a significant 
whirlpool above the culvert on the west side of the road and I saw no sign this 
morning that the road was flooded last night, giving a bird the chance to just 
swim across the road.

Anyway, just some thoughts...

I wasn't able to observe it for more than 5 minutes, but maybe someone else 
might have time in the next day or two to watch it for a bit to see if it 
extends its wings (of course absence of impairment would not mean it's not the 
original bird, which may have recovered). 
Like Kevin, I have a hard time believing another common loon made the same 
error.
It is in the small patch of water on the east side of the road, near the 
southern tip of the preserve, which is where the other one was found, and last 
seen.There doesn't seem to be enough room there for a loon to take off.

Can anyone tell if this bird is suffering the same impairment of its wing as 
the original Loon. That may make this call a little easier. 

Also, for people who have observed this present Loon and the environs, is there 
a greater expanse of water that will allow the bird to take off this time, if 
it is not the injured one?  


Thanks.

Linda

Re: [cayugabirds-l] stranded common loon to be rescued Sun.

2011-04-18 Thread David McCartt
I stopped by Goetchius Wetland Presreve this morning (4/18) on my way to work 
and did not see this bird.  Hopefully, this is an indication that the bird was 
successfully rescued.

There was a nice pair of COMMON MERGANSERS close to the road and the drainage 
pipe that might have snared the loon.

Hope a lot of people don't converge on the

already.

[cayugabirds-l] Cornell Lane, 1/28

2011-01-28 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

After numerous failed attempts to see SNOW BUNTINGS on Mt. Pleasant I finally 
scored this morning at Cornell Lane.  There were about 200 Snow Buntings 
foraging very close to the road providing great looks.  I did not see any 
Horned Larks or Lapland Longspurs.

Also, just to the south of Hartford village on Rt 38, was a flock of aprx. 75 
WILD TURKEYS.

Good Birding,
David McCartt

[cayugabirds-l] Hoary Redpolls- Richford

2011-01-04 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

This morning Esther and I were treated to the sight of 110+ Redpolls as they 
swirled around our front yard.  Unfortunately I didn't have the time to really 
check them out but Esther did and she got a good count as they came down to 
forage under the feeders.  There were still some up in the elm but they 
scattered before she could count them.  However, she was pretty certain that 
there were a few HOARY REDPOLLS in this flock.  She noted that these birds were 
distinctly lighter in color than the others and really stood out amongst the 
crowd.

Good Birding,

Hi All,

We had our first of season COMMON REDPOLL this morning, mixed in with

[cayugabirds-l] Feeder birds- Richford

2010-11-15 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

This past weekend marked the beginning of my 10th year of participation in 
Project Feeder Watch http://www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw/index.html so I thought 
I'd share my list.

COOPER'S HAWK  1
Mourning Dove  1
Red-bellied Woodpecker  1 (new regular visitor since this past winter)
Downy Woodpecker  2
Hairy Woodpecker  3
Blue Jay  6
American Crow  2
Black-capped Chickadee  14
Tufted Titmouse  2
Red-breasted Nuthatch  2
White-breasted Nuthatch  2
European Starling  7
Dark-eyed Junco  5
Northern Cardinal  2
House Finch  8
American Goldfinch  7
EVENING GROSBEAK  5  (2 females, 3 males)

Unfortunately, it seems the Pine Siskins we had for at least 5 consecutive days 
moved out last Wednesday.  Evening Grosbeaks appeared again for a few hours 
yesterday and we had two females this morning.  Still haven't seen any American 
Tree Sparrows.

In case you're wondering, we have 3 tube feeders, 1 hopper feeder, and 2 niger 
seed socks setup.

Good birding,
David McCartt

Cayugabirders,
I stopped by Myers Point on Cayuga Lake in Lansing early this morning.
 A Pectoral Sandpiper and a Lesser Yellowlegs were feeding in the
puddles on the lawn and a Greater Yellowlegs flew by.  It would be
interesting to know if anything stopped in with the passage of the
front.
Good birding,

[cayugabirds-l] Broad-winged Hawk eats American Toads

2010-05-04 Thread David McCartt
Hi All,

On Sunday, about 6pm we had our 15th new bird species of the weekend, a 
BROAD-WINGED HAWK.  Like Geo, our pond was/is hosting many mating American 
Toads.  The hawk took advantage of the easy pickings.  I digi-scoped some 
rather poor photos in low light from about 300 feet.  If you're interested you 
can see some of them here.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, possible Bell's Vireo rumor

2010-04-08 Thread David McCartt
Sorry gang but I'm the one that started the Bell's Vireo rumor!  After reading 
this post and doing a little research I now realize the bird was a/the 
BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER.  I'm not very familiar with this Gnatcatcher and I've 
never seen/heard a Bell's Vireo.  I guess not-so-close and no cigar for me...

Carry on.

Attracted by a third-hand report of a possible Bell's Vireo on the Wilson Trail 
north 
at Sapsucker Woods this afternoon (07 April), I ran into Tom Johnson, Carolyn 
Sedgwick, and Jay McGowan.  They kindly pointed out a BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER, 
a first for the basin for 2010, so far as I know.  I don't think anyone 
re-found the Vireo, 
nor do I know the details on the bird, but it's worth keeping eyes  ears alert 
around 
Sapsucker Woods for awhile.  

Other birds I encountered today included a NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW 
on the wires between East Shore Park and NYS 34, probably the same Swallow sp. 
I saw 
backlit there yesterday as I went past at the speed limit with a fare, and a 
PINE WARBLER 
singing in pines beside The Parkway in Cayuga Heights near Parkway Place, a 
good sighting 
from the taxi.
