Does anyone know what kind of thrush this is.  Was in my backyard the last few 
days foraging on the ground.  I have definitely had 2 hermit thrushes, but this 
one looks redder with bolder spots on the breast. Thanks, Carol

[cayugabirds-l] Helmeted Guinea Fowl

2015-10-26 Thread Dimitri William Ponirakis
I spotted a couple of Helmeted Guinea fowl (Numida meleagris) by the side of 
the road this morning. (Sweeney Road, Cortland  ) I presume they are escaped or 
feral.  I also heard that they are useful in reducing the tick population and 
also that there might be an issue with competition with native wild turkeys?

I submitted to e-bird with a photo:

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcocks????

2013-04-05 Thread Dimitri William Ponirakis
Hi Bob

I'm pretty sure I saw a Woodcock out the back of my house on Cosmos Hill west 
of Homer at about 6pm last night (Thursday 4th).  I was walking in an area 
between a field and scrub, and it just shot up in from of me.

Has anyone been hearing/seeing woodcocks in the past few days?

Back at the beginning of March we had several here on Whitted Rd (Snyder Hill). 
And in years past we have had up to seven in our and neighboring fields. I went 
out last night around 8 pm to survey and could not find a one. It was 
relatively mild and I did hear an occasional peeper. It doesn't seem reasonable 
that they would have taken a step back south. Are this year's numbers down? 
Does anyone have any idea?

Bob McGuire
