[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!

[cayugabirds-l] Migrants

2020-09-08 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,
 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 
thrush popped up to eat the berries of the red-osier dogwoods that border our 
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!
Laura

Louis Hicks had a sighting of one and possibly two birds he strongly suspected

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

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

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.

  A fair number of ovenbirds!

[cayugabirds-l] Purple finches in the snow

2020-04-26 Thread Laura Stenzler
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] FOY birds

Hi all,
 Today on our property on Hunt Hill Rd.  we had our first of year (FOY) 
chipping and fox sparrows as well as northern flicker. Plus, there has been a 
pair of hooded mergansers on our pond all day. We think the female has chosen 
the owl/duck box that is hanging over our driveway as her nest site. We hope so!

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.

[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.

37 Sandhill cranes visible from East Road now (5:30 pm). Also 5 trumpeter

billed based on the relatively flat backs, and barring
on sides.  Also around 30 lesser yellowlegs and 1 black-bellies plover. 
   Also lots of ducks along the wildlife drive in the main pool. Nice evening!!

[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!
Laura

 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!
Laura

[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!
Laura

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!

Note: Club members are invited to join Adriaan for dinner at Aladdins in 
Collegetown just before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen 
Richards at cl...@juno.com  by noon Monday so 
reservations can be made.

Summary:
The Wadden Sea is the largest intertidal wetland area in western Europe, a key 
stopover for millions of migratory waterbirds and shorebirds. I will introduce 
you to two species I have recently studied at this World Heritage Site in the 
Netherlands, the Dark-bellied Brent Goose and the Eurasian Oystercatcher. I 
will show how these birds fuel for the winter and migration on the mudflats and 
at neighboring pastures and salt marsh. We studied these birds by combination 
of field observations, food sampling and GPS tracking of individual birds. I 
hope to illustrate the unique role of the Wadden Sea in these birds' annual 
cycle, as well to show you how traditional field work and high-tech tracking 
technology can complement each other, allowing us to understand the habitat 
requirements and movements of these animals in ever higher detail

Adriaan Dokter is a migration ecologist with a background in physics, with an 
interest in animal movement and foraging ecology. His research bridges the 
disciplines of physics, meteorology, computer science and ecology, addressing 
questions on the effects of global change on the distribution and seasonal 
migration of birds. At Cornell Lab of Ornithology he studies the migration of 
small songbirds at the scale of a full continent, a perspective that is still 
largely missing, but that has come into reach through the use of meteorological 
weather radar networks in animal migration studies. At the University of 
Amsterdam and the Netherlands Institute of Ecology he studied the migration and 
habitat requirements of Brent Geese and Oystercatchers in the Wadden Sea. 
Adriaan obtained a PhD in physics at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular 
Physics, University of Amsterdam

The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. All are 
welcome. Doors open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation 
starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the 
presentation.

Open to all!!! Please join us!


Again, my apologies for this coming out so late.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Possible Western Wood-Pewee: Myers Point Area, Ladoga Park, Lansing, NY

2018-10-21 Thread Laura Stenzler
There is some discussion about the dark lower bill, more characteristic of 
Western wood-peewee, as seen in the photo Ken shared. But “all about birds” 
notes that juveniles can have all dark bills. Read especially the last line, 
below. 
“Eastern Wood-Pewees are olive-gray birds with dark wings, and little to no 
yellow on the underparts. The sides of the breast are dark with an off-white 
throat and belly, giving a vested appearance typical of pewees. They show 
little or no eyering. Adults have thin, white wingbars; those of juveniles are 
buffy. The underside of the bill is mostly yellow-orange, except in some 
juveniles.”

[cayugabirds-l] Reminder: Cayuga Bird Club meeting, October 8

2018-10-08 Thread Laura Stenzler
TODAY, Monday, October 8, will be the monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club. 
Everyone is invited- you do not have to be a member!
The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors open 
at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation starting at 7:15. Bird 
club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the presentation.

Speaker:  Kyle Horton, Ph.D;  Postdoctoral Research Fellow
at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Presentation:  Cloudy with a Chance of Migration
The notion of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of migratory birds passing 
in and out of broad geographic areas is of considerable public and ecological 
interest -- and of conservation concern. Capturing and quantifying these 
large-scale movements has remained a principle challenge. Kyle will discuss how 
he uses weather surveillance radar to quantify and forecast migratory movements 
across the United States.

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods-late morning

2018-09-07 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,

 As soon as I saw Mark Chao's report of warblers at Sapsucker Woods, I headed 
over there (around 10 am).  I first walked the north part of the Wilson Trail, 
up to the Sherwood Platform but didn't come across any migrant flocks. I headed 
back toward the building, going along the pond. As I approached the trail that 
heads north (by the fence/gate), I found one black and white warbler.  Then I 
realized there were more birds flitting around and found a flock that consisted 
of:

1 scarlet tanager

2 northern parula warblers

2 red-eyed vireos

1 bay breasted warbler.

And, lots of mosquitoes


That was around 10:30.  I then crossed the road to bird on the east side of 
Sapsucker Woods and found a second flock as I was walking along the Woodleton 
boardwalk. This was around 11:30.  As I stood on the boardwalk facing north, a 
flock approached me, feeding low in the trees as the birds flew over my head 
and continued south. It was really nice!

2 black-throated green warblers

1 bay breasted

2 magnolia warblers

2 chestnut sided warblers

1 northern parula

1 common yellowthroat

1 Nashville warbler

1 black and white warbler


And more that I couldn't get on fast enough.


I was happy to find this flock so late in the morning!

[cayugabirds-l] Robins and salamanders

2018-06-04 Thread Laura Stenzler
We have a American robin nest above the door to our deck where we can get a 
great view of all of the activity. The adults are feeding four young which 
hatched about a week ago. Before flying to the nest they often land on the deck 
railing to check us out before deciding it is safe to fly to the nest. This 
affords a good opportunity to see what they are carrying. This afternoon I was 
surprised to see a whole, young salamander in with the worms in the adults 
beak!  The entire load was fed to one hungry chick. Yesterday we found a dried 
carcass of a small salamander under the nest on the floor of the deck. 
According to the “AllAboutBirds.org” website, robins “have rarely been recorded 
eating shrews, small snakes, and aquatic insects.”  Maybe it’s not as rare as 
previously thought.

Hi Laura,


   I'm so glad you had a good finch morning. About 5 miles to the southeast, 
we, too, had an abundance of finches. I tried to count the goldfinch by fives 
and got to ~135. We had 2 Pine Siskin that I noted. One and probably two Fox 
Sparrow sang as I fed the birds. Plus, one Purple Finch and two Song Sparrow 
and about a dozen juncos and 4-5 Tree Sparrow at the feeders.


   We have a pair of Red-bellied W. coming in to our suet and recently a 
Pileated has been drummiong and coming to the suet. We hope he succeeds in 
attracting a mate.


   It doesn't feel like spring, bu it sounds like spring.

[cayugabirds-l] Up the lake: Dryden to MNWR

2018-03-31 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,

 Ton and I drove north from Dryden to Montezuma NWR today to see what was 
around. We started at home on Hunt Hill Rd and our first stop after that was 
Sapsucker Woods. There we found one WOODDUCK, one PIED BILLED GREBE, one SWAMP 
SPARROW and several BLUE BIRDS among the regulars (redwinged BB, mallard, 
grackle, song sparrow, robin, starling, Canada goose, crow, goldfinch, red 
tailed hawk).   From there we birded around Stewart Park, which had quite a 
nice variety of birds. We saw RING-BILLED and HERRING GULLS, 1 DOUBLE CRESTED 
CORMORANT, 1 HOODED MERGANSER, many COMMON MERGANSERS, many BUFFLEHEAD, around 
25 RING-NECKED DUCKS, 10 RUDDY DUCKS, GREATER SCAUP, 3 SHOVELERS and 8 
GREEN-WINGED TEAL.  From there we headed up rte 34 to Myers Point and Ladoga, 
both of which were pretty empty with the strong south wind pushing against the 
shore.  Along the way we saw TURKEY VULTURES and CAROLINA WREN among other 
resident birds.



We drove into Long Point State Park where we were happy to hear our first 
PHOEBE of the year calling.  Further along the shore, after leaving the park, 
we came upon a couple of WIGEON.  As we entered the town of Aurora, we enjoyed 
seeing the BALD EAGLE sitting on his/her nest.  From the Aurora boathouse we 
found 3 HORNED GREBES, one in breeding plumage, 2 COMMON LOONS, also in 
breeding plumage, about 40 RED-BREASTED MERGANSERS, both male and female with 
the males doing their neat head dipping display, one SNOW GOOSE and a huge 
group of 30+ BUFFLEHEAD close to shore.  Also, our first TREE SWALLOWS of the 
day.



Factory Pond in Union Springs had BUFFLEHEAD, GREEN-WINGED TEAL and RING-NECKED 
DUCK while the county office area further along the shore had one GREAT 
BLACK-BACKED GULL, our only one of the day. As we left Union Springs we came 
across our first OSPREY of the day.



Finally we entered Montezuma NWR. The water near the visitor center had many 
SHOVELER, MALLARDS, GREEN-WINGED TEAL (couldn’t find the Eurasian teal), some 
PINTAL and a pair of BLUE-WINGED TEAL.  Lots of Tree Swallows flying over as 
well.  The first part of the wildlife drive was pretty sparse but once we 
reached the open water, we saw many, many CANVASBACK (mostly along the far 
side, of course), a good number of REDHEADs, RING-NECKED DUCKS, GREATER SCAUP, 
one BLUE-WINGED TEAL, about a dozen GADWALL, our first COOTS of the day and 
many, many GREEN-WINGED TEAL.  Further along the wildlife drive, past Benning 
Marsh and mostly in the new ponds were many, many GADWALL. This seems to be 
where they hang out rather than in the main pond.  We finally started seeing 
GREAT BLUE HERONS as well.  One HARRIER and a KILLDEER before we left the drive 
and headed to Tschache Pool.



Tschache Pool was simply amazing.  From the tower we could see wall to wall 
ducks.  WIGEON, GADWALL, RING-NECKED, SHOVELER, more GREEN-WINGED TEAL than 
I’ve ever seen in one place before, PINTAIL, SCAUP, MALLARDS and many 
GREAT-BLUE HERONS. We counted 6 BALD EAGLES, many perched on the ground among 
the grassy hillocks in the swamp.



Between Tschache and the turn off for East Road, we saw 4 more OSPREY.  From 
East Road, we scoped Knox Marcellus Marsh.  There was a large group of SNOW 
GEESE in the fields east of the marsh and many SHOVELER, TEAL, and other ducks 
in the marsh itself. We actually didn’t spend a lot of time looking.  We did 
find two sleeping TRUMPETER SWANS, which raised their heads just long enough 
for us to identify them.



We then headed toward Carncross Road, hoping to find Sandhill Cranes but we 
didn’t have to go that far, as it turned out.  In a field on the northwest side 
of Van Dyne Spoor Rd were three SANDHILL CRANES, feeding quietly as people in 
passing cars stopped to look.  Carncross was pretty empty (one more TRUMPETER 
SWAN).



All in all a good day. 62 species – Happy Spring!

[cayugabirds-l] spring siskins and more

2018-03-29 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi all,

 There have been 3 siskins at our feeder over the last three days, along with a 
few purple finches and loads of goldfinches. Last night we heard barred owl 
calling from the woods and today we had 2 wood ducks on the pond.  Where are 
the phoebes?

and from the west side of the lake, about a mile south of Cayuga Lake State 
Park, there is a solid mass of snow geese stretching from shore to shore.

A huge flock of snow geese is close to shore just north of Aurora today, March

Wasn’t that amazing???  We observed that extended flock - and another one 
farther south, opposite Aurora - this afternoon. We gave up trying to count 
(and looking for Ross’s Goose) and made a “questimate” of at least ONE MILLION. 
I wonder if anyone actually has a count?

I saw thousands of, if not tens of thousands of, snow geese at 330 pm today off 
Cayuga State Park on the northwest side of the lake.  A dozen or so swans 
(sp?), swimming on the periphery of the rafts looked like they were herding the 
geese. The gang was wonderfully loud.
