[cayugabirds-l] Accipiter eating bats

2014-08-10 Thread Kevin Loope
remains of a bat (mostly wings) at the base of the pole, plus the remains of at least two more bats that were slightly less fresh. Do they “hawk” the bats in flight?? What a remarkable feat that would be! Anyone ever witnessed it? Cheers, Kevin Loope -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http

[cayugabirds-l] Ovenbird behind Corson/Mudd Hall

2012-04-25 Thread Kevin Loope
This afternoon, after walking out the back door of Corson/Mudd Hall on Cornell Campus, I saw an Ovenbird scurrying around below the white pine near the building. This was a first for me this year, so I thought I'd let others know. I've certainly never seen one there before! Cheers, Kevin
