We had a cheerful and bright (almost neon orange) golden-crowned kinglet today 
eating insects and singing in our old pine tree. A new yard bird for us.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] White-throated Sparrows

2016-04-26 Thread M & K Mannella
This morning We had two white-crowned sparrows foraging and singing and one 
brown thrasher-always a surprise!

We also have an eastern meadowlark singing consistently around 7:00 pm for 
about a week now. There are a couple more in the fields too. Nice!

[cayugabirds-l] Western tanager remains

2016-03-05 Thread M & K Mannella
I trekked to campus this afternoon, along with Rueben Stoltzfus and his family, 
to see the Western Tanager. We found it (life bird for Reuben) in the same 
location, moving from behind the yews to the alcove at the store entrance 
eating where someone had placed a handful of sunflower seeds on the ground near 
a wall of ivy. 

It is quite tolerant of people, and stayed in one location for a good five 
minutes or so, and provides excellent close views. At one point we were no more 
than a few feet away looking over the wall into the yews. 

We were able to make out some orange showing around the eyes, on the forehead, 
and around the beak.

[cayugabirds-l] Doves on ice

The doves are having quite a challenge this morning with all the ice covered 
limbs and wires. They land, flutter, slide an inch or so, then fly away and try 
again.  The only place they can get a good grip is in a pine tree. The little 
goldfinches are having no trouble at all. How fun to watch!

[cayugabirds-l] Thank you, birding community

2015-12-13 Thread M & K Mannella
After a thoughtful email exchange this morning with a member of this list, I am 
reminded how grateful I am for the opportunity to interact with this birding 
community.  

Thank you all for your eloquent and informative birdwatching stories and 
reports. I am a better birder because of the words you share. 

Thank you for being patient, thoughtful, and respectful educators -for using 
the word improbable rather than impossible- and for using the moment to teach 
rather than to simply correct. 

And lastly, Thank you for sharing your scopes, smartphones, field guides, your 
insights, knowledge, and enthusiasm under all weather conditions and roadside 
circumstances.  I am so happy to see you out there. 

Have a wonderful winter birdwatching-- and a big welcome back to the Seneca 
Falls snowy owls!

[cayugabirds-l] Short-eared owl

2015-12-06 Thread M & K Mannella
This evening I went searching for SHORT-EARED OWLS in an area where I thought 
had potentially good habitat. I did see one at sunset (which was awesome this 
evening) in the field across from this address:
9554–9558 Townsendville Rd in
Interlaken.  This is the same area where I frequently saw a Rough-legged hawk 
last winter. 

Can someone verify that this is still in the basin?

As I was driving around I realized that quite more corn and cover crops are 
being grown in the last few years where there used to be  rough habitat.

[cayugabirds-l] Screech owl and eclipse

2015-09-28 Thread M & K Mannella
On both Saturday and Sunday morning we heard the whinny call of a screech owl 
just before 6:am. Seems we are a stopping ground for screechies on the move 
over the last three years-and just for a couple of days in the fall. 

While watching the eclipse from our driveway we had a super clear and cloudless 
view. The Milky Way was bright and we saw two amazing shooting stars. Gorgeous 
evening.

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Mockingbird behavior

2015-07-04 Thread M K Mannella
The little ones fledged about 4 days ago, and the aggressive behavior has 
lessened. However, they are not only feeding the fledglings, they have a new 
nest with new eggs already.

[cayugabirds-l] Yale farm road today

2015-03-20 Thread M K Mannella
While searching for the snowy owls at 11:45 in the blowing snow today on Yale 
Farm Road (no luck) I was lucky to get really good views of 2 NORTHERN HARRIERS 
- a male and a female-- and a ROUGHLEGGED HAWK all hunting the same field east 
and south of Mcgrane. Several times they were all within my binocular view at 
the same time and easily seen with out the bins. It got even more interesting 
when a raven joined the party and started mobbing the female harrier for a 
short spell. 

New feeder addition: one tufted titmouse and several more red-winged 
blackbirds.

We did indeed scour Stahl/Seybolt/Martin road area this afternoon with no sign 
of the gyrfalcon. 
At the corner of Stahl and Seybolt we did see about nine male and female 
RINGNECKED PHEASANTS foraging in a field and close to the road. Somewhat 
unusual and surprising (is that a pheasant farm there?) but nonetheless 
beautiful to see a group of them.

 After nesting, Tree Swallows tend to join large roosts in wetlands. During

 Tree Swallow roosts can become enormous as more and more birds join

 that may be under the actual group that breeds in our out buildings. It is 
 always a sad day not to see them in the morning, though that is the annual

 our yard relatively bug free.
  I was curious about their cousins, the  tree swallows. They arrived 
 before the barn swallows, took up nest boxes away from the buildings and 
 hunted along with the barnies.  At some point in the summer they  
 disappeared, and I noticed a few individuals in the last few days near the 
 barn swallows. Where did the tree swallows go for the summer?

[cayugabirds-l] Pheasants and other August birds

2014-08-17 Thread M K Mannella
Some interesting sightings over the last couple of days-- seems like months 
since I have been birdwatching!

After some absence, I hear white breasted nuthatches and a baltimore oriole 
singing in my front yard. I wonder have they been around but silent or have 
they been on the move and back again?

I found a cedar waxwing sitting on a nest in a small maple tree, and both she 
and her mate have been very vocal. 

On Wycoff road I flushed from the side ditch a female ring-necked pheasant with 
at least 4 chicks. 

Our dozen Barn swallows are still here and feeding their second batch of 
fledglings. I have seen large gatherings of bank swallows on the telephone 
wires. 

Northern mockingbirds also feeding their second round. 

And thanks to everyone who posted about the Gallinule families at MNWR- I was 
finally able to add them on my life list. I did not expect them to be so 
beautiful.

[cayugabirds-l] Black-billed cuckoo

2014-06-13 Thread M K Mannella
Strange as it may seem (at least it does to me) we have been regularly hearing 
a black-billed cuckoo here in farm country. Just this evening we saw the 
elusive bird fly from the telephone wire into the willow and then I lost it in 
the maple tree. I figured it to be more of a woodland bird, but there it was 
surrounded by barns and uncut, wet hay fields. I am so happy to have finally 
seen it, thanks to my husband who noticed a bird whose tail was not flicking up 
and down like our resident mockingbird.

[cayugabirds-l] Bobolinks

2014-05-21 Thread M K Mannella
For a few reasons, including the weather, we have more unplowed and unmowed and 
ungrazed fields this year around the house giving us quite a few chattering 
BOBOLINKS. They won't stay still long enough to count but I am certain there 
are more than our usual one or two that just pass through. They move so quickly 
that I find it is best to focus the binoculars on one spot and wait for them to 
fly through my field of vision. Fun!

[cayugabirds-l] Help with fox vs song sparrow id

2014-05-03 Thread M K Mannella
I have small sparrows under the feeders. The are heavily streaked on the face 
and body, with a prominent spot on the breast. My first impression is that they 
are song sparrows but then they do the backward hop to scrape at the decaying 
leaves. My questions to anyone who can offer some advice on id:
Do song sparrows dig like that?
Are fox sparrows always reddish? (These birds are not)

[cayugabirds-l] Rt 89 snowy

2014-01-01 Thread M K Mannella
One SNOWY OWL sitting on the snowy patch on a bank 15 ft from the road. . On rt 
89, Approx 1 mile south of 5/20 intersection. On the west side in snow and 
brush with perfect views of the cayuga marshes. At 10:30 a.m. and still there 
now. My map gives me the address of 2077 rt 89 seneca falls. It is just north 
of that address. Careful- there is a bad bend and a dip in the road for those 
traveling southward. Stopping is safest on the east side of the road :-). I 
have a somewhat decent picture of anyone wants to see it.

[cayugabirds-l] Short eared owl-ovid

2013-11-24 Thread M K Mannella
At 3:25 this afternoon while sitting at the kitchen table, a movement outside 
caught my eye. It was a SHORT EARED OWL hunting in the pasture next to my house 
(hall road) on the south side.  We got great views of it hunting (tho a little 
blurry thru my husbands bins since mine are on their way to nikon for repair- 
ugh!)
. It would hover in one place four 4 or 5 seconds then either dive or move to 
another vantage point often sitting on a roadside fence post. We had great 
views from the second floor and watched until he flew west at around 3:40. I 
was just getting ready to go for a drive to look for owls and this one came to 
me!

Juncos have arrived at the feeder and snow buntings are here too. 
Good birding!

 On the subject of Bald Eagles, I've checked the nest in Ulysses a couple of

 branches above the nest, but for a change, one or two adults has also been 
 perched in the nest tree. Maybe they are getting less shy, or maybe with

 Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle
 
  
 
 Today afternoon while I was seeing some awesome insects like Green Darners 
 and Black Saddlebags and a Ixodontia wasp carrying long grass blades (7 to 
 8 inches long) to some location under my office window, I watched an adult 
 Bald Eagle circle around in front of my office window for a few minutes 
 before heading off towards Lab of O I presume!
 
  
 
 Finally, they are here. The Fireflies!  About 30 + flying in the front and 
 back yard. Till yesterday I had not seen them, so I was wondering if 
 changes in the plant compositions changed the habitat for them. But no, I 
 think they just were late in emerging this year. I went out to switch on 
 moth lights, and was glad to observe fourth of July fireworks in the yard!
 
  
 
 I know Karen Edelstein posted seeing them a couple of weeks ago. Has anyone 
 else seen them earlier this year?
 
  
 
 Cheers

[cayugabirds-l] Orchard oriole, barn swallows, and meadowlarks

2012-06-29 Thread M K Mannella

The ORCHARD ORIOLE (I assume the same one) that nested in our yard was back 
this morning singing loudly from a large maple. In May he was actively 
defending a nest then all went quiet. Not sure if there was a successful fledge 
or not. Today is the first time I've seen or heard him since the first days of 
June.  What a nice surprise to hear his joyful song again! 

BARN SWALLOWS are fledging as I type.at least one nest has seven heads 
sticking out this morning. 

And we have a MEADOWKARK in the general vicinity that I can hear from my yard. 
That is a very rare event. Perhaps they like the army worms..

[cayugabirds-l] Short-eared Owls - Ovid

2011-01-23 Thread M K Mannella
I've been seeing, very regularly, 3 short-eared owls on Wycoff Road in Ovid.
This evening, however, there were 4. These owls are quite vocal and it is a
real treat to see them and hear them.  Wycoff Road is between Hall Road and
Rock River.  Park on Wycoff, just east of Rock River, and look east. The
owls rise up from behind the Beardsley farm on Rock River cross back and
forth across Wycoff, often perching on a fence post. Those of you may
remember the farm from the owl trip two years ago--they come back every
year.

[cayugabirds-l] Barn swallows

2010-09-08 Thread M K Mannella
In case anyone is interested, last night we still had about a dozen  
BARN SWALLOWS.  Usually they are gone by now.  Also unusual is at  
least two pairs had a second brood.
