Hi all
I just observed a Blackburnian warbler feeding a huge cowbird chick. I’ve never

Experts recommend taking down feeders until the source of the disease is 
identified.

Reports of sick and dying birds with vision problems, eye swelling (often with 
a crusty discharge), and neurological symptoms have been rippling across parts 
of the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States. This illness is different 
from the conjunctivitis condition known as “finch eye disease,” but the exact 
cause is currently unknown.

While many songbirds have been impacted, the illness seems to be most common in 
juvenile Common Grackles, Blue Jays, European Starlings, and American Robins.

While the unknown disease affecting birds has not yet been reported in New 
York, it has been reported in neighboring Pennsylvania. We are taking a cue 
from wildlife agencies and suggesting the following five steps, for now:

1. Cease feeding birds and providing water in bird baths until this wildlife 
mortality event has concluded. This may be infectious.
2. Remove all feeders and bird baths and clean with a 10% bleach solution.
3. Avoid handling dead or injured wild birds. Wear disposable gloves if it is 
necessary to handle a bird.
4. Keep pets away from sick or dead birds as a standard precaution.
5. To dispose of dead birds, place them in a sealable plastic bag and discard 
with household trash. This will prevent disease transmission to other birds and 
wildlife.

Won’t it cause additional harm to remove birdfeeders that are familiar food 
sources for backyard birds?
Many of you may have concerns about ensuring birds have access to familiar food 
sources, including birdfeeders. We understand and want to provide a bit of 
reassurance that the impacts of these temporary precautions will have minimal 
impacts on the birds you love. Fortunately, it’s the summer breeding season and 
most bird species are relying on caterpillars and other insects to feed their 
young, natural food sources that are readily available in nature. Additionally, 
birds are resilient and crafty creatures who will adapt to changes in food 
supplies with relative ease, finding new opportunities when familiar options 
are no longer available. We hope this issue is identified and resolved as soon 
as possible and you can resume the use of feeders. In the meantime, for the 
safety of the birds, we encourage everyone to work together and err on the side 
of caution.

For NY specifically, residents should contact their Regional DEC Wildlife 
office if they find any birds with eye lesions or exhibiting neurologic signs.

animals.<https://click.everyaction.com/k/32315970/295

2021-03-14 Thread Laura Stenzler
This morning at our feeders, in our flowerbeds, on our lawn is a flock of 
perhaps 100 Redpolls!  It's amazing! It's hard to get an accurate count because 
they move around so much, and is probably conservative. AND, today is my 
Project Feederwatch count day!

[cayugabirds-l] Snow geese at the north end of Cayuga Lake

2021-03-10 Thread Laura Stenzler
Today (Wednesday), after spending the morning on our south facing deck watching 
loads of Canada and snow geese fly over,  Ton and I drove around Cayuga lake. 
On the northwest side, at the south end of the ice (which is south of Cayuga 
Lake State Park, where Lake Rd. rejoins 89) we found two huge flocks of snow 
geese in the water and on the ice,  as well as a really big mixed raft of 
ducks.  Mostly redheads, but also lots of scaup and smaller numbers of black 
ducks, ring-necked ducks, wigeon, gadwall, pintails, canvasbacks, hooded 
mergansers, red-breasted mergansers, bufflehead, mallards, swans, black-backed 
gulls, a bald eagle (which got the snow geese up into the air)..it was 
really amazing! We could pull off on Lake Road just before it rejoins 89 and 
had great views - with and without a scope.  They will probably be there 
tomorrow as well.  Highly recommended!

 Folks,

Now that you know spring actually is coming, remember, Spring Ornithology 
starts March 30!  Still lots of space. Here's my blurb (please share with 
friends or family ANYWHERE).

--Sandy Podulka

\\\

Would you like to learn more about birds and their lives?  Consider taking the 
Cayuga Bird Club?s Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress, held Tuesday evenings 
March 30 to May 18 via Zoom. Even if you are a seasoned birder, your future 
birding experiences will be enriched by this course, by exploring beyond 
finding and identifying birds.  Have a Tuesday night conflict? Classes are 
recorded for viewing or reviewing at your convenience.

This course is perfectly timed to help people identify spring migrants and 
better understand bird behavior. Each meeting features a group of migratory 
birds that are at the peak of their spring migration, with discussions about 
bird song, migration, courtship, family life, conservation, and how to create a 
bird-friendly habitat on your own property.

Dr. Kress, well known for his entertaining and engaging teaching style, 
illustrates each presentation with stunning photos and bird song recordings. 
Although the course focuses on birds of the northeastern U.S, most of the 
identification, behavior, and conservation tips are relevant to people 
everywhere.

Dr. Kress served for many years as Director of the Audubon Seabird Restoration 
Program and Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine, and has written numerous books, 
articles, and online courses about birds and wildlife conservation. The course 
fee is $125 per household. Details and registration at:

[cayugabirds-l] Redpolls!

2021-02-20 Thread Laura Stenzler
Finally, we have a small flock of Redpolls coming to our feeders!  FIrst it was 
2 or 3 every other day or so, for about 15 minutes each day over the last 2 
weeks. Then they discovered the one niger seed sock feeder that has been up 
there since fall.  Yesterday, there were about 5 on that sock so I rushed out 
to buy two mesh niger feeders and more seed and today there are about 20 on and 
off all day. Fun!  I've also seen them eating suet. They mostly ignore the 
sunflower seeds now. At times there are 8 or more squeezing onto each of the 
mesh feeders, and on the sock!
  This is all happening on Hunt Hill Road, 7 miles east of Ithaca (town of 
Dryden).

Now, where are those Evening Grosbeaks.

[cayugabirds-l] Durland Preserve Information

2020-10-27 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
  With all of the activity at the Durland Preserve, I realized that I really 
did not know what the actual boundaries are, and what the status of the 
surrounding area is.  I reached out to Jay McGowan who provided this link to a 
map 
(http://cornellbotanicgardens.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Ellis-Hollow-Wetlands.pdf)
 from the Cornell Botanic Garden, which shows that the preserve and surrounding 
areas are part of the "Ellis Hollow Wetlands," one of the Botanic Garden 
Natural Areas!  It is great to see so much of this area protected (although not 
all of it). In addition, here is a link to the 'Natural Heritage of the Ellis 
Hollow Wetlands." 
https://cornellbotanicgardens.org/explore/off-campus-natural-areas/plants-of-ellis-hollow-wetlands/
I've always considered this preserve to be like a secret, hidden gem in the 
middle of growing suburbia.  Now I have a better understanding of just what an 
amazing gem it is.

[cayugabirds-l] Finches at Durland Preserve

2020-10-27 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
 Yesterday afternoon, several people reported on Ebird that they saw and heard 
the following at the Durland Preserve in Ithaca, which is an eBird hotspot.. 
Check here for directions. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L446377
Reported were 2 calling evening grosbeaks, 2 house finches, 2 purple finches 
and an amazing flock of 60 red crossbills! In addition, there has been a summer 
tanager hanging out since yesterday, and still there today. This is apparently 
a first for this area!
   I hope people get a chance to see some of these amazing birds. Please be 
mindful of the area when visiting and stay on the trails.

ring-necked, scaup, green-winged teal, etc. Also, in the pool to the left as

[cayugabirds-l] Warbler Treman marina area

2020-09-21 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
I am birding along the trail from Treman marina that goes along the lake this 
morning and want to share that I’ve come across three good migrant flocks. It’s 
10:15 and they are still very active. It’s a bit challenging to identify them 
because there are so many leaves and they move fast!  So far bay-breasted, 
Wilson’s, black-throated green and chestnut sided warblers. Tanager, 
rose-breasted grosbeak, Philadelphia, red-eyed and warbling vireos, a fly-over 
adult bald eagle, kingfisher and Carolina wren. 
 Come on down!

 Lots of migrants in our yard on Hunt Hill Road today, and yesterday.  This 
afternoon we had 2 bay-breasted warblers, a blackburnian, black-throated green, 
redstart and common yellowthroat warbler.  Just now, 6:15ish, a Swainson's

lawn. Yesterday there was a small flock in the late afternoon which included a 
female plumaged tanager, chestnut-sided warbler, magnolia warbler, blackburnian 
warbler and red-eyed vireo.  Several ravens flew over. 
   Other birds in the yard between yesterday afternoon and today include 
carolina wren, a family of 5 titmice, red-breasted and white-breasted nuthatch, 
cardinal, catbird, chickadees, 3 or 4 female-plumaged hummingbirds, phoebe, 
flicker, downy wp and red-bellied wp.  We feel so lucky to be in such an active 
place!
   So, as I'm writing this, a flock of warblers is in the yard, feeding, flying 
up and disappearing in the leaves, making it really hard to get on any of them. 
But, I did see 2 blackburnians, a redstart, 2 blacktroated greens, a magnolia 
and I'm pretty sure a yellow-throated vireo.  There are probably 12-15 birds 
flying around. Exciting and frustrating as well! One of those magical moments 
in birding!

Louis Hicks had a sighting of one and possibly two birds he strongly suspected 
were whistling-ducks at this spot on Aug 10, so it's entirely possible this 
bird has been here for almost a month.

Ok. I am a terrible birder. But saw the report today and suddenly was able to 
explain what I saw fairly late on Friday.  A lone odd shaped duck far to s edge 
of water in Wetland s of the road with a way too orange Bill.  I couldn’t quite 
make out any markings with my binocs and because the light was bad  I decided I 
was hallucinating more than there was. A whistling duck never occurred to me.

So this is just to say that it has been there several days and maybe is stable 
for a bit. I have my first visitor/family here since March so didn’t check out 
the Wetland from the road Sat or today. Maybe tomorrow but—good luck all.

I'd like to give a shout-out to Dave Nicosia for his recent comments concerning 
the southerly air flow and the warblers in its tow.
I had a wonderful day birding with my friend, Linda, along the southern shore 
of Lake Ontario (Church Woods/Firehouse Woods/ BraddocknBay Eastern Spit).
Between these 3 locations we got 21 species of warblers!!!
Not to mention various thrushes, various, woodpeckers, vireos, a screech owl, 
and waterfowl.
I think we had 54 species in all.
The woods were dripping with warblers - no lie/exaggeration and many were low 
like Magee Marsh - a real fallout...5 Canadas, 2 mournings, tons of magnolias 
and bays, wilsons, blackpolls etc.
Dave's hit the nail on the head with his timely illustration of the connection 
between Meteorology and Ornithology.
I am grateful for his contribution(s) to the listserve.
Thanks for the heads-up Dave.

[cayugabirds-l] cowbird and phoebe

2020-05-06 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
 I just witnessed one of those sad natural scenes - a female cowbird stole two 
eggs from a phoebe nest, which is above the light at our back door, and 
proceeded to eat the yolks.  Phoebes are common cowbird hosts and I assume she 
will lay in that nest, and that's I know this is just the way things are, but 
still sad to see especially after watching the phoebes build and start to 
incubate.

I walked along Shindagin a hollow Rd this morning from north to south, from

  A fair number of ovenbirds!

[cayugabirds-l] Purple finches in the snow

Hi all,
 It's hard to believe, but it's snowing again up here on Hunt Hill Rd, Sunday 
afternoon at 6:20.  The goldfinches and purple finches are frantically chowing 
down on sunflower seeds before it gets dark. And, we have a record 5 male and 4 
female purple finches!  The maximum goldfinch number was 16 today, which 
happens to be my Cornell Feederwatch day!  I hope they all have nice, sheltered 
spots for tonight. It's likely to keep snowing.   
Happy spring!

[cayugabirds-l] Redheads and goldeneyes

2020-02-22 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all 
What a beautiful day to go birding!  There is a large, spread out raft of 
redheads just off the Village Park parking lot in the center of Aurora. At 
least 1000 birds.  There is no wind and the lake is calm making for great 
viewing. Also lots of goldeneye a bit further to the south along with 
red-breasted  mergansers and bufflehead.

This evening there is a snowy owl near the Syracuse airport. It was in a field

[cayugabirds-l] Swans etc

2019-11-23 Thread Laura Stenzler
There are many hundreds of Tundra swans very close to shore in calm water along 
Lower Lake Road, north and south of Cayuga Lake State Park. It’s an amazing 
sight. Also several groups of 20-30 hooded mergansers, some scaup, wigeon, rudy 
ducks, redhead, gadwall, lots of mallards and of course lots of Canada geese. 
The amazing thing is how close to shore they are and how calm the water is.

[cayugabirds-l] Reminder: Cayuga Bird Club Field Trip-Saturday 9/21

2019-09-20 Thread Laura Stenzler

Hi all,
Just a reminder...
 I'll be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip this coming Saturday, 9/21.  
We'll meet at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology at 7:30 am and finish up by noon 
at the latest.  Migration is well underway and there are mixed flocks of 
migrants around which I hope to find. My plan is to walk along the Dryden Rail 
Trail starting in Freeville and heading east toward George Road.  There are 
many different habitats along the way, from field to swamp to woods, which 
should be good for a variety of birds.  If time permit, we may then head to 
Dryden Lake to round out the morning.
  The trail is somewhat stony, so wear good shoes, bring a snack and prepare 
for a nice stroll.
The trip is open to the public.
See you Saturday!

[cayugabirds-l] Migrants

2019-09-14 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
This evening between 5:30 and 7 pm there was a large migrant flock moving 
around our yard on Hunt Hill Rd, east of Ithaca. They went back and forth and 
generally stayed in the vicinity, which I found unusual and wonderful. As 
always, they were moving fast from spot to spot, hiding behind leaves and 
generally being a pain to identify. But I did see the following:
Swainson's Thrush
Robin
Parula Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Baybreasted Warbler
Tennessee Warbler
Black and White Warbler
Chestnut sided Warbler
Common Yellow Throat
Red-eyed Vireo
Catbird
Chipping Sparrow
Phoebe
Eastern Wood pewee
Titmouse
Goldfinch
Chickadee
Hummingbird

Plus a couple of warblers I was unsure about.  Possible Pine Warbler and 
Blackpoll Warbler. But I am not confident about either.
It was a fun and amazing 1 1/2 hours!

Cheers!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Avian Pox Virus

2019-07-17 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi Carol,

 I asked my husband, Ton Schat, who is an avian immunologist working with 
chickens as well as wild birds, to answer your question. He suggests discarding 
the seed that is in the feeders and disinfecting the feeders with 10% bleach 
for 1/2 hour, then wash with plenty of soap and water. And, stop feeding so the 
infection does not continue to spread to the feeder again and to other birds.

Good luck!
