[cayugabirds-l] Blackpoll

2018-05-15 Thread Lisa Wood
I just had a couple of Blackpoll Warblers at Stewart Park--one near the
swan pen and the other on the edge of the Fuertes Sanctuary woods.

Sigh...

[cayugabirds-l] Rusty Blackbird @ CLO

2016-01-23 Thread Lisa Wood
Dave Nutter and I (and a small group of bird-walk participants) saw the Rusty 
Blackbird a few times this morning near the Lab of O feeder garden between 9:00 
and 11:00. We all had fabulous looks at the bird's rusty-edged feathers and 
white eyes through Dave's scope.

[cayugabirds-l] Wood Thrush

I was surprised (and delighted) to hear a single Wood Thrush singing this 
morning in the woods behind our house. This is about a week earlier than usual.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Singing birds

2011-10-14 Thread Lisa Wood
Yes, and the annual occurrence of autumnal recrudescence:

The Autumnal Recrudescence of the Amatory Urge

When the birds are cacaphonic in the trees and on the verge
Of the fields in mid-October when the cold is like a scourge.
It is not delight in winter that makes feathered voices surge,
But autumnal recrudescence of the amatory urge.

When the frost is on the punkin' and when leaf and branch diverge,
Birds with hormones reawakened sing a paean, not a dirge.
What's the reason for their warbling? Why on earth this late-year
  splurge?
The autumnal recrudescence of the amatory urge.

A posting about this usually occurs annually as well. :)

 Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Singing birds

 This morning I came across a flock of migrants along Hunt Hill Rd.  
 which included song, white-throated and chipping sparrows, towhee,  
 many juncos, many ruby-crowned kinglets which were singing, one  
 hermit thrush, several robins and one singing blue-headed vireo. All  
 of these birds were in one  small shrubby area. I was very surprised  
 to hear the singing!

[cayugabirds-l] Red-headed Woodpecker

2011-05-05 Thread Lisa Wood
I was stunned to look out my window a few minutes ago to see a brilliant male 
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER in my yard at the bottom of Culver Road (southwest town 
of Ithaca). The bird landed first on a small sunflower seed feeder where two 
brilliant male Rose-breasted Grosbeaks were feeding. I was busy appreciating 
the black/white/red spring extravaganza (and the sunshine) when it intensified 
as the woodpecker flew to the feeder, then to a branch of the big maple above, 
appeared to cache a piece of suet, then disappeared to the east. I haven't been 
able to refind the bird as of this writing.

This isn't far from where, last year (?) someone reported a RED-HEADED 
WOODPECKER at Old Hundred at the corner of Bostwick Rd. and Five Mile Dr.

[cayugabirds-l] Whip-poor-will in Lansing

2010-05-02 Thread Lisa Wood
About half an hour ago, from the parking lot at 3109 N. Triphammer Rd.  
(SE corner of Triphammer and Peruville roads), I heard a WHIP-POOR- 
WILL calling. It was instantly recognizable despite the competing  
spring peepers, toads, and traffic!
