Hi all,

Not super rare, but an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull is hanging out in the
Hanshaw Rd fields, roughly across from 1452. It was in the right side of
the main flock when I left. Easiest LBBG I've ever found.

Thanks!

[cayugabirds-l] Common Nighthawk in Danby

2016-08-10 Thread Ethan Chaffee
Hi all,

My wife and I were wrapping up a game of disc golf when a Common Nighthawk
silently flew directly overhead, heading South. We were in the open field
right next to Dotson Park Trail road for any who want to try for it. First
sighted at around 8:35. We didn't see him again, but were only there for
another 5 or 10 minutes. (For those of you who don't know, the entrance to
the disc golf course is directly across from the Danby Town Hall... We were
just East of the Danby Community Church when he flew overhead.)

Thanks!
Ethan

[cayugabirds-l] Wilson's Phalarope at Eaton Marsh / Shorebird Flats

2015-08-18 Thread Ethan Chaffee
I swung into Montezuma on my way back from work related travel and saw a
juvenile Wilson's Phalarope cautiously poking around a lump of grass at
Eaton Marsh. He was left of center of Eaton Marsh, and provided much better
looks than anything I've seen at Towpath. This was about 11:30 today.

Also, I swung into Sapsucker. The Olive-sided Flycatcher is now left of the
Big Snag, last I saw (1:25), and being mildly harassed by a phoebe.
