Thank you everyone. I should have enough info to get started. Many of you love 
Avinet. It appears that they sell several different types of bands but their 
online catalog is a little confusing.

Jacalyn,
Federal bands are not available to breeders. Many breeders use poultry bands

I heard my first Red-winged black birds singing on Sunday. They may have been 
singing earlier in the week but I was still in hibernation mode. There were at 
least 3 in my backyard in West Groton. Also, I had a swarm of little bugs 
drowned in a water bucket I left on the sidewalk overnight.

Spring has sprung,

[cayugabirds-l] Working Lands For Wildlife - grants for farmers, ranchers, forest owners

2012-10-01 Thread Jacalyn C Spoon
NRCS and FWS Reach Historic Agreement to Extend Wildlife Conservation Efforts 
on Working Agricultural Lands
Regulatory Predictability Will Help New York Farmers Improve Wildlife Habitat

Syracuse, N. Y., September 27, 2012- Natural Resources Conservation Service 
(NRCS) Chief Dave White and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Director Dan 
Ashe announced an agreement that will provide long-term regulatory 
predictability for up to 30 years to New York State farmers and forest 
landowners participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Working Lands 
for Wildlife (WLFW) Initiative. Participants voluntarily implement proven 
conservation practices designed to protect wildlife habitat for Golden Winged 
Warbler, New England Cottontail and Bog Turtle on private lands in critical 
habitat areas within New York State.

This agreement provides New York State landowners with a way to keep working 
lands in production while complying with the Endangered Species Act (ESA), 
said Donald J. Pettit, New York State Conservationist. NRCS and FWS have come 
together to give landowners the predictability needed to manage their farms for 
both production and wildlife benefits.

The agreement builds on a $33 million investment NRCS announced last spring 
dedicated toward producers who develop and implement conservation plans to 
manage and restore high-priority habitats for seven specific wildlife species 
across the country. The species are greater sage-grouse, New England 
cottontail, bog turtle, golden-winged warbler, gopher tortoise, lesser 
prairie-chicken and the Southwestern willow flycatcher. NRCS, FWS and numerous 
state and local entities are partnering to implement WLFW.

NRCS, FWS and numerous other entities such as NYS Department of Environmental 
Conservation, local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, National Wild Turkey 
Federation, Ducks Unlimited and National Audubon Society are partnering to 
implement WLFW.

With the current WLFW agreement, farmers, ranchers and forest landowners who 
implement and voluntarily agree to maintain the proven conservation practices 
in WLFW will have addressed the related ESA regulatory responsibilities for up 
to 30 years. These landowners will be able to operate their farms and ranches 
as agreed upon, providing economic benefits and species conservation 
simultaneously.

Under the WLFW partnership, federal, state and wildlife experts jointly 
identified at-risk or listed species that would benefit from targeted habitat 
restoration investments on private lands. Using the best available science, 
these wildlife experts prioritized restoration actions on a large regional 
scale to focus assistance most cost effectively.

The federal government will grant farmers, ranchers and forest landowners 
regulatory predictability in return for voluntarily making wildlife habitat 
improvements on their private agricultural and forest lands. Participating 
producers must adhere to the requirements of each conservation practice during 
the term of their contract, which can last from one to 15 years. If landowners 
would like to receive regulatory predictability for up to 30 years, they must 
maintain the conservation practices as outlined in the NRCS and FWS agreement.
For more information about NY NRCS programs, including Working Lands for 
Wildlife, please visit http://www.ny.nrcs.usda.gov/ .  General NY NRCS 
information:  315-477-6524

[cayugabirds-l] Bobolinks Woodcocks

The Bobolinks and Woodcocks are singing up a storm in my back yard.
Fireflies have just started.
If you'd like to listen just send me a quick message before tromping through

Feel free to park in the driveway but don't block anyone else.
And, avoid the electric fences.

[cayugabirds-l] It must be spring

I was delighted last night to see a Turkey Vulture circling overhead. I thought 
little of it. This morning I noted that there actually was a dawn chorus! I

the time to look or listen for anything else but was happy to see my familiar

Happy Spring!

[cayugabirds-l] hay cutting question

2010-06-14 Thread Jacalyn C. Spoon
Anyone want to chime in on managing hay and pasture for birds?
I'm also writing this question to NOFA and SARE.

OK, so I've been told don't cut my hay until August and other said July.
June 15th is the accepted date that I was told in my farmer circles.

If I delay cutting my field past mid June I can't expect much of a second 
cutting. It's too hot and the field will not grow well.
It seems that I would eventually end up plowing to get rid of the unwanted 
brush and that wouldn't be good either.
I want to keep the land open grassland as the McMansions pop up around me.

Thanks,
Jacie

My backyard has a bounty of Bobolinks if anyone has a desire to see and hear

I also found a Redwing Black Bird nest last night while putting up fence posts.
They were none too happy that I was so near but they are also lucky I didn't 
knock it over.

[cayugabirds-l] Thumping of wings???

2010-04-21 Thread Jacalyn C. Spoon
Hello Cayuga Birders,

Last night at dusk I heard the distinct thumping of wings. 
It was a regular beat not the crescendo  decrescendo of a Grouse. 
Any ideas?

I have 16 acres of grassland/hay with pines all around and a few neighbors have 
large tracks of oak. 
About 150 acres of hay originally but much is grown up in brush or built upon.
