marginally familiar with these creatures and identified it one week later at the refuge when consulting their field guides. I saw a large, brown weasel-type creature, about the size of a dachshund, with a bushy darker tail. I had no idea they were so uncommon! -kimberly sucy -Rochester, NY

The whole "out of the car" issue is why I wish there were photo/viewng blinds in the area across the road, where people could pull off the main drive into the old trail parking lot and share scopes, provide assistance, and take photos without obstructing the view of passing cars or disturbing

A trip along the wildlife drive at Montezuma just after 7 PM tMonday yielded some nice views at Eaton Marsh of a pair of Trumpeter Swans preening in the gorgeous evening light, while a rather mottled-looking American Golden-Plover picked along a ridge of mud behind them. Greater and Lesser

[cayugabirds-l] Evening at Knox-Marcellus, Montezuma NWR

2015-08-22 Thread Kimberly Sucy
After a great RBA field trip, which is not my story to tell (but worth waiting for!), I headed to a few spots and ended up at the Knox-Marcellus overlook well after 7 PM for my traditional evening last-call birding. Before too long, I'd picked out a Phalarope that looked much different

The CasiNO Tyre web site ( http://www.casinofreetyre.com ) points out the risk of runoff from the parking areas into White Brook as a cause for concern. It's a good site (discounting the obvious bias towards one side of the issue which one would expect from the site name!). -kimberly On

I bought my Duck Stamp from the ABA to ensure that my contribution was marked as non-hunter revenue - not that I deny the many contributions of hunters to the preservation of our natural lands! That just doesn't represent me best. -kimberly sucy -ks...@eznet.net On Aug 5, 2014, at 10:08 AM

I'm gonna come out in favor of keeping the drive pedestrian-free. I know other places that do have pedestrians (Forsythe's lovely auto loop comes to mind) are quite successful and enjoyed by many, but in Montezuma's case, what would be the gain? The pedestrians I've seen on our drive push

Hello! After the Montezuma/RBA field trip today, several of us headed over to Van Dyne Spoor for some later-evening birding. A young Peregrine Falcon was once again perched on the power poles, just like last week, but this time we briefly saw its leg band colors: the right leg had a blue

I had some free time after an RBA field trip today and headed to Montezuma to bird a bit in the gray and soggy afternoon. I actually had quite a bit of fun, from watching the Armitage Road eagles while Pileated Woodpeckers called in the woods (one eventually was seen flying across the road

I saw the American Avocet from East Road, distant but decisive scope views, at 6:30 PM Sunday. Same area of Puddler's Marsh as he was in yesterday. A Sandhill Crane pair were feeding on the berm not far away, and a Caspian Tern was on the nearer marsh.The Black-crowned Night Herons at the
