[cayugabirds-l] bobolinks

2021-05-05 Thread Marty Schlabach
We had several bobolinks as yard birds this morning.  I believe that's a first 
for our yard bird list.  I heard their song and assumed at first that it was 
our resident mockingbird.  But, wanting to confirm it, we saw at least 3 
bobolinks.

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Redpolls

2021-03-25 Thread Marty Schlabach
The number of red polls at our feeders has dwindled.  We have had red polls 
consistently since mid-Feb, with a peak number of 80-100.  This past weekend we 
had 20-30, then 12-15 for a couple of days, yesterday 1 and so far none today.  
The goldfinches are gone too.

It's been a treat having red polls around this winter.

[cayugabirds-l] new vs. old niger seed

2021-02-20 Thread Marty Schlabach
I've been feeding niger seed all season.  Even though we have plenty of birds 
coming to our feeders, few birds have been visiting the niger feeders and I 
rarely have to refill them.  The seed is some I purchased last season.

The other day I decided to purchase new niger seed.  The birds are now 
clamoring to get to the feeder and refilling needs to happen regularly.

Must be that niger seed does not age well.  The benefits of aging will have to 
remain with things like wine.

Great idea!  The Syracuse article you linked to says that a number of these 
mega-farms are in the planning stage for NYS.  Maybe an approach through the 
permitting process or legislation would be more effective than approaching them 
individually?  Does anyone on this list have good DEC or legislative contacts?

Does Audubon or the Sierra Club or anyone else have an updated report on how 
this can work, perhaps analyzing the effect of the Minnesota law mentioned in 
your other link - what regulations work best & why they don't cost taxpayers or 
solar farms much?  For that matter, is Audubon already working on this in NYS?

Does anyone have any more details on this? If it is done with wildlife in mind 
this could be a good thing. If they plant pollinator friendly and native 
grasses this could be a positive. But if it is just plain grass it could be at 
best just a trade-off and at worse a negative. These solar farms could be good 
for birds and pollinators. see
https://www.audubon.org/news/can-solar-plants-make-good-bird-habitat

Maybe you are all aware of this but the big renewable energy push through solar 
farms could be an opportunity to improve bird and pollinator habitats. Anyway, 
just wondering if any folks have information on this or have contacted solar 
farm companies on this.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Buntings

2021-02-04 Thread Marty Schlabach
The day before we got this last snow, I estimated a flock of 600 snow buntings 
in the field next to our house.  The field was a new seeding to hay last season 
and many annual weeds came up with the hay and went to seed, giving the snow 
buntings lots to pick from.  We’ve been seeing numerous flocks between 
Interlaken, Lodi and Hector.  Usually some horned larks mixed in as well.

to have excellent scope views of several of them along with the larks when they 
settled in the roadway. The mixed flocks were, first, on Thorpe Rd immediately 
west of the Finger Lakes airport, and later near dusk on Kings Corners Rd just 
north of McCulloch. In one field the larks were leaping up and snagging seeds 
from the head of plants, presumably assisted by the height of the snow cover.

On Hile School Rd today 30 Jan 21 at ca 345pm,  just west of Ed Hill 
intersection. About 80 scudding back and forth across the road. All buntings. 
First ones I have seen. None seen along Red Mill’s S-curve which is also a good 
spot.

Hi Pete,

The CBC course, Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress, is a lecture course, but 
membership to Cayuga Bird Club is included with course registration. At this 
point, the CBC is still uncertain when its field trips will resume, but when 
that happens, Spring Ornithology course participants would be able to 
participate in them.

Hi Folks,

The Cayuga Bird Club is running "Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress" via Zoom 
again this spring (sigh). BUT, because we know this ahead of time, we can use 
it as an opportunity to give as a gift to friends/relatives beyond driving 
distance (or, anywhere!!).  Here's our announcement--please share widely and 
think about people who could take it this year who normally can't--in nursing 
homes, with commitments in the evening, and so on. Check out our web page for 
details!

Thanks!!

Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress:

If you’re looking for a holiday gift for your favorite birder (or yourself), 
this might be it!  This Spring, the  Cayuga Bird Club will once again host our 
popular 8-week course, Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress, online.

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings, March 30 to May 18, 2021, from 7 to 9 
pm. Lectures also will be recorded and posted for later viewing, so you can 
watch or review them at your convenience.

Please share this announcement with friends or relatives anywhere who might be 
interested, including those well beyond driving distance from Ithaca who could 
actually participate this year because it will be over Zoom! Although the focus 
is on local birds, topics will interest bird enthusiasts throughout the 
country. Discussions and Q & A will include the locations where students live.

Dr. Stephen Kress’s dynamic presentations, with stunning photos and audio 
recordings, will focus each week on a group of migratory birds that are at the 
peak of spring migration, with discussions about bird song, migration, 
courtship, family life, conservation, attracting birds, and creating a 
bird-friendly habitat.

Dr. Kress is the founder of Audubon’s Project Puffin and served for many years 
as Director of the Audubon Seabird Restoration Program and Hog Island Audubon 
Camp in Maine. He is the author of more than ten books about birding, gardening 
for birds, and seabirds. His lectures about birds have been enjoyed by many 
people in the Ithaca area and beyond.

The course fee is $125. For more information, registration, and gift 
certificates, see:

[cayugabirds-l] northern harriers

2020-11-24 Thread Marty Schlabach

In anticipation of participating in the DEC raptor survey this season again, 
Mary Jean, Phil and I scouted a couple of locations for raptors yesterday 
afternoon.  We spent a bit of time at Neal Rd (Lodi) and didn't see anything.  
It was early in the afternoon and still too bright when we arrived to expect to 
see short ears.  But we didn't even see a northern harrier.

We then drove to Dean Rd, also Lodi.  We arrived about 4:25 and immediately saw 
two Harriers, a female and a male.  They were mainly flying over the fields on 
the south side of the road.  Soon we saw a second male.  The numbers gradually 
increased and then there were 7 harassing a large bird in a tree at the south 
edge of the field to the south of the road.  And they were vocalizing.  Without 
a scope we couldn't confirm what bird they were harassing, but we think it was 
a great horned owl.  We did not see any short eared owls.

None of us had seen that many harriers at once before.

Best,
Marty

I just got a phone call from former Cornell undergrad and super birder Adam 
Byrne that our good friend Ned Brinkley died today in Ecuador on a birding 
trip. No details except he was hiking up a trail, got short of breathe, sat 
down and died.

For those of you who were around in the 1990s, you will remember that Ned 
Brinkley was an irresistible force of nature who transformed the birding 
community here. He was getting his Ph.D. in German, but spent all his daylight 
hours birding. I think he only slept about 4 hours a night. When he was in 
charge of the Cayuga Bird Club field trips, and they were trying to decide on 
whether to have them on Saturdays or Sundays, Ned decided that we would do them 
on BOTH days, and he would lead them. He taught the Lab's World Series of 
Birding team, the Sapsuckers, how to win, turning us from a middle-of-the-pack 
team to champions!

I'm not going to do an obituary tonight. I just wanted to get the word out. I 
know there are people on this list that knew Ned in the day, and will be 
saddened to learn of his death.

[cayugabirds-l] Mockingbird constantly vocalizing

2020-10-23 Thread Marty Schlabach
We have a pair or two of mockingbirds at our place, pretty much year round.  I 
find it curious that we have one vocalizing pretty steadily all day long.  Any 
explanation for such persistent vocalizing this time of the year?

And, I'd appreciate it if some of you would send some siskins and evening 
grosbeaks our way.  We still don't have any at our feeders.

Thanks,

Wish I could hear this Chris but have eschewed zoom. It's a great story 
nationwide. I had the honor of being the first survey and banding crews in the 
Chesapeake Bay Region back in the early 70s. These were done by a group called 
the Raptor Information Center under the aegis of The National Wildlife 
Foundation. We based in the DC/MD area and worked the watershed of three 
states. A handful of nests in the whole area and very low reproduction rate at 
the beginning. Climbing into an eagle nest was amazing and locked me into 
ornithology for life and a new career field. It is so satisfying to see the 
tremendous increase in these terrific birds with the less than ferocious voices!

Best,
John

A symbol of national strength and unity, the Bald Eagle has also become a 
parable for nature's unshakable ties to humans. Estimated to have numbered 
100,000 in pre-colonial times, shooting, cutting of forests, and finally 
pesticides, took a toll on the bird, bringing it to the brink of extinction by 
the early 1960's. Join Montezuma Audubon Center Director Chris Lajewski to hear 
the conservation success story of our national bird and learn how the Montezuma

I recommend starting at http://used.addall.com/ when looking for a used book .  
It pulls together used books from many different used book sites. There are

As far as I know, (and I may not be current in knowing what’s happening there), 
the NYS Ag Experiment Station, now known as Cornell AgriTech, is no longer

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorne question

Hi John,

Based upon input from several people (in particular, Stuart Krasnof) over the 
years, the key food resource used by neotropical migrants at the Hawthorn 
Orchard (during normal years) are the larvae of the Tortricidae moth family, 
collectively known as leaf-rollers. This has been a cold year and those larvae 
that I have analyze appeared to be significantly underdeveloped for the time of 
spring.

There’s a great book on Tortricidae moths in New York. I’ll try to dig up the 
title and authors. It was put out by Cornell University Cooperative Extension 
several decades ago.

One other general thought about how the birds know when there’s good food 
supplies at the Hawthorn Orchard (and when there isn’t) has been a frequent 
topic of conversation I’ve had many times with Meena Haribal. Recent studies 
have shown that birds have very finely tuned olfactory receptors (despite 
earlier thoughts that birds, in general, have a poor sense of smell).

If I recall correctly, when plants are under attack by insects, or are being 
damaged, they can release distress chemicals. It is hypothesized that when 
plants are under attack like this, these released distress chemicals may be 
detected in the air by migrating insectivorous birds, which then may descend 
upon an affected plant (or entire region of affected plants (i.e., cuckoos 
descending upon forests under attack by gypsy moths or tent caterpillars) to 
eat the insects, thus being beneficial to the plant and for the foraging birds.

I would appreciate any more insight others may have on this topic.

Hope this limited understanding helps, John!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

If I recall correctly, when plants are under attack by insects, or are being 
damaged, they can release distress chemicals. It is hypothesized that when 
plants are under attack like this, these released distress chemicals may be 
detected in the air by migrating insectivorous birds, which then may descend 
upon an affected plant (or entire region of affected plants (i.e., cuckoos 
descending upon forests under attack by gypsy moths or tent caterpillars) to 
eat the insects, thus being beneficial to the plant and for the foraging birds.

I would appreciate any more insight others may have on this topic.

Hope this limited understanding helps, John!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

A couple of sumac heads “saved” over winter in a dry bouquet are getting lots 
of attention from my catbirds and now a male robin. I just hung them at our 
feeders.
 I knew crows, jays and woodpeckers (hairy, downy) love them, but didn’t 
realize that they were quite so broadly popular.  Maybe I will save more.  We 
have been trying to encourage as many sumac clones as possible to be 
productive.  Will redouble our efforts.

[cayugabirds-l] Ospreys

2020-04-15 Thread Marty Schlabach
Mary Jean and I checked out the Osprey nests on Foots Corners Rd (#58) and 
Morgan Rd (#57) near Interlaken, in the town of Ovid about mid-day today.

The Foots Corners Rd nest had one osprey perched on the nest.  We chatted 
briefly with a neighbor and he indicated that two birds have been frequenting 
the nest.

We saw one osprey on the Morgan Rd nest.  It seemed quite hunkered down, but 
also seemed to be rearranging nesting material.

We also saw a half dozen loons along the lake in the Sheldrake & Kidders 
Landing areas, as well as plenty of buffleheads and common mergansers.

[cayugabirds-l] cowbirds, snow geese,

2020-03-04 Thread Marty Schlabach
Yesterday was probably the first day since late December that we didn't have 
cowbirds at our feeders.  The numbers ranged from 20-100 over that time, with 
fewer the last week or so.

Yesterday I saw at least a dozen sizable flocks of snow geese overhead, heading 
north.  Most flocks I estimated to be 500+ in number.

[cayugabirds-l] osprey

2019-04-23 Thread Marty Schlabach
The osprey nest on the top of the cell tower along Rt 96 just outside of the 
hamlet of Covert, Seneca County, is active again.  My earliest sighting was 
April 11.

More recently, while I was driving by, I noticed an osprey sitting atop a 
utility pole by the road, and as I drove by, it dropped to the ground, picked 
something up without landing, and flew off.  I thought it was prey, though I 
didn't know that ospreys fed on anything besides fish.  I suppose it could have 
been grabbing nesting material, but it looked like it was carrying a rodent.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle

Bob,

Jenny Landry (DEC) jenny.lan...@dec.ny.gov<mailto:jenny.lan...@dec.ny.gov> is 
the wildlife biologist in DEC Region 8 who keeps track of eagle nests in Region 
8.  https://www.dec.ny.gov/about/617.html She might have some additional info 
of interest.  I believe she mentioned there are about 80 nests known in Region 
8, which I believe includes 11 counties.  Tompkins County is in Region 7, so 
perhaps there is a person with similar responsibilities in Region 7.

I remember visiting the eagle hacking site in the Iroquois Wildlife Refuge in 
in WNY in the 1970s when the program was underway.

I would add
* the creation of the EPA in 1970,
* the banning of DDT in 1972,
* a series of Endangered Species Acts in 1966, 1969, & 1973

According to Wikipedia, the Bald Eagle Protection Act was first passed in 1940, 
Golden Eagles were added in 1962, and it was amended many times including a 
major strengthening in 1972.

About local Bald Eagles, I saw a pair of adults perched together in a tree at 
Dryden Lake in January. I bet they have been or are or will be nesting there.

The nest by the mouth of Paine’s Creek at the south end of Aurora is very 
accessible. It is not in the Montezuma Wetlands Complex, nor in the southern 
Cayuga Lake Basin.

In the last few days I have seen as many as 5 Bald Eagles (1 adult and 4 
different immatures) on or over the ice shelf at the south end of Cayuga Lake.

As someone who was growing up when Bald Eagles were near their population low 
point, I am thrilled every time I see one. It is wonderful to live in a place 
and time where we can personally experience the results of that recovery and 
know that efforts in our area were a part of the story. (Peregrine Falcons & 
Ospreys, too)

I am amazed - and heartened - by the continued (and increasing) reports of BALD 
EAGLES in the area. I have been looking into their increase in numbers because 
of my interest in the case of the shooting in Caroline in December. An article 
in Wikipedia noted that the US population crashed from some 300,000-500,000 
birds in the 18th century to only 412 nesting pairs in the Lower 48 by the 
1950’s. The primary causes of the decline were loss of habitat, shooting, and 
the effects of DDT (weakening eggshells so that they collapsed under the weight 
of the nesting adults).

With the passage of several laws (1918 Migratory Bird Treaty and 1950 Bald and 
Golden Eagle Protection Act) the population rebounded to some 100,000   birds 
in the early 1980’s. In the mid-1970’s New York State launched the most 
comprehensive restoration program in the country. In1976 a site was chosen at 
Tschache Pool in the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge for the first hacking 
tower in the state with young wild birds brought in from the upper midwest. 
That program was discontinued in 1989 when the goal of ten nesting pairs was 
reached. The large Bald Eagle statue along the wildlife drive was recently 
installed to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the start of that program.

Today the MNWR boasts ten active nests with several more in the North Montezuma 
Wetlands Complex. During a recent winter raptor survey LaRue St. Clair spotted 
59 birds in one morning. In recent days the agglomeration of nearly 50 roosting 
Bald Eagles at the east end of Onondaga Lake has drawn national attention. See 
this article: 
https://www.syracuse.com/outdoors/2019/01/how-to-see-wintering-bald-eagles-on-onondaga-lake.html

For us at the south end of Cayuga Lake, there has been an active nest at 
Maplewood for several years now as well as a nest in Spencer Marsh (I believe). 
 And it appears that the eagle shot in Caroline may have been prospecting for a 
nest site in the Geotchus Preserve on Flat Iron Road.

RE: Re:[cayugabirds-l] history of the Ithaca Christmas Bird Count

2019-01-08 Thread Marty Schlabach
I remember Dorothy MacIllroy describing the transition from the Jan 1 Cayuga 
Lake Basin count to participation in the Christmas Bird Count.  I don’t know 
from where the push came to make the change, but Arthur Allen was resistant to 
making the change.  The Basin count always started on Jan 1, but the dates of 
the CBC did not extend to Jan 1. And of course, a 15 diameter circle did not 
match the Basin.   Eventually, the CBC organizers and Doc Allen compromised.  
The CBC dates were extended to include Jan 1 and Doc Allen agreed to 3 count 
circles to cover much of the Basin, one in the south around Ithaca, one in the 
north around Montezuma and one in the middle, perhaps centered on Aurora.

I wonder if that was ever written about in the Cayuga Bird Club Newsletter?  
I’m pretty sure that was where I heard Dorothy give this history.

Subject: Re:[cayugabirds-l] history of the Ithaca Christmas Bird Count

Hi Tom, et al.,

Nice that you are really digging into this.  Regarding item 1), I don't 
remember any formal New Year's Day count prior
to the 1963 initiation of the Ithaca CBC.  My impression of the "count" of 
prior years was simply that Doc urged people
to report any and all "first" sightings within the Cayuga Basin, and that each 
year the list would start anew on 1/1.

I am not aware of any organized outing on 1/1, nor do I recall Doc ever talking 
about his own New Year's Day birding.
The turkey dinner is news to me.

May, however, was a different matter.  In addition to the Saturday morning bird 
walks in May at Stewart (Renwick) Park,
Doc was the focal point for the Big Day, which certainly did scour the entire 
Cayuga Basin for 24 hours and included
a morning breakfast at the Allen home on Kline Road.  Participants were mostly 
academics.  I was first invited to join
Doc's team in 1953, and considered that a great honor.  We started at 3AM by 
checking for Barn Owls at a church on
downtown Ithaca's South side.  After breakfast we headed up the lake as far as 
Howland's Island and checked
Montezuma thoroughly.  Ed Seeber, a professor at Ithaca College, was the only 
non-Cornellian that I recall being part
of the organized group.

Regarding item 3), in light of what I already said about not recalling any 
formal group activity on 1/1, I don't think
there was really any "phasing out" by Doc or anyone else.  The keeping of a 
"first sighting" list for the entire Cayuga
Basin continued without interruption.  The Ithaca CBC results simply got the 
basin list off to a running start.  If anything,
it may have relaxed any pressure that Doc may have felt to get the new birding 
year off to a good start.

I hope others who were around then or in the later '60s can provide additional 
recollections or correct my myopia.

Good birding,
Randy

Subject: Re: history of the Ithaca Christmas Bird Count



bits and pieces of the story are coming out, which is great, but I have a few 
more questions:

1) does anyone know when Allen's New Year's Day count was initiated? it takes 
traditions a while to become, well, traditions, but I'm curious to know just 
how early this became a focus of local birding.

2) the CBC had its (modest) origins in 1900, which is to say, before there 
could have been much in the way of birding traditions in Ithaca. and it was the 
brainchild of Frank Chapman, who was well known both to Allen and (especially) 
to Louis Agassiz Fuertes. but I've found no evidence that either Allen or 
Fuertes ever experimented with the CBC, even as others across upstate New York 
began trying out the CBC from very early on. am I the only one who thinks 
there's something odd about this? there's no record of Allen's or Fuertes's 
thoughts on Chapman's CBC scheme?

3) I appreciate all the background on the phaseout of the Basin-wide New Year's 
Day count in favor of the Ithaca CBC. but what's still not clear to me is, was 
it Allen's initiative to make this change? and if so, what lead him to the 
(late)

Subject: [Eatonbirds] Stoltzfus Farm Field Trip Report Jul 21, 2018


After a call from Reuben reporting grasshopper and vesper sparrows on his farm 
and inviting to come out, we organized an impromptu field trip for Saturday 
evening. Reuben had said 7-9pm was the best time.

Reuben called me that afternoon to say his wife was in labor with their 4th 
child, and they wouldn't be there, but we we welcome and could have the run of 
the place.

Most of us met at the Geneva Welcome Center and car pooled. A few met us at the 
farm.

We walked the farm lane, watching and listening. There was a red-tailed hawk 
being very vocal. We were about half way down the lane when Reuben called to 
say they had a healthy baby girl, Ella, and he would join us in a half hour. By 
the time he arrived everyone had had good scope looks at a Savannah sparrow 
carrying food.


Reuben found a grasshopper sparrow with food sitting up and chipping. Everyone 
got good looks, a year bird for most and a life bird for some. We weren't so 
successful with the vesper.

Congratulations to Reuben and his family on the birth of Ella and  a huge thank 
you to Reuben for opening his farm and leading us to the birds on such an 
important family day. And thanks to Lyn Jacobs for recording and reporting.

[cayugabirds-l] bobolink: a new yard bird

2018-05-18 Thread Marty Schlabach
While working in the garden, I identify many different common birds by song, 
without looking up.  We have bluebirds, tree swallows, barn swallows, mourning 
doves, red wing blackbirds, house wrens, mockingbirds, robins and many others.  
Today I heard a song I didn't quite recognize at first, and then suddenly 
thought, 'that sounds like a bobolink'.  The next thought was that it is 
probably the mockingbird.  Then I mentioned it to Mary Jean and she said, 'well 
there is a dark bird on the pasture fence what has some white patches on it'. 
We have about 2 acres fenced for pasture and sure enough, there were two 
bobolinks on the fence.  They flew down into the grass and back up to the fence 
several times and then headed off.  Not sure if they'll be staying around, but 
it was great to have seen them during their visit, if they were just passing 
through.  The nearest field with breeding bobolinks that I'm aware of is about 
2 miles away.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle - Interlaken

2018-04-11 Thread Marty Schlabach
I know of two Bald Eagle nests in the Interlaken area.  Both are on private 
property.  There could be more.  

For the last several years, there has been an active nest on Powell Rd, across 
the road from our house.  It's in the woods at the back of a large field.  It's 
not very visible this time of the year when no leaves are on the trees, and 
essentially not viewable from the road during the summer.  One and possibly two 
young fledged from that nest last year.

We've seen reduced activity at that nest and in the general area this year 
leading up to breeding season.  About a month ago, we noticed a large nest on 
the south side of Hickok Rd. and later confirmed seeing adults at that nest.  
The owners of that property have been seeing the eagles regularly coming from 
and going to the nest.  It appears that nest is the active one this year.  
Though we have occasionally seen adult eagles along Powell Rd, we haven't seen 
activity at the nest.  

The two nest locations are probably less than 1 mile apart, as the eagle flies.

Is this the same pair starting a new nest?  Did one of the original pair die 
and the remaining one got a new mate and they started a new nest?  It would be 
interesting to know or at least hear others' opinions.

Today about 1pm there was an osprey perched on a pole along rt 96 just south of 
the hamlet of Covert, Seneca County and a mile or two north of Trumansburg.  
This is right next to the cell tower that was put up last year on the east side 
of the road.  The tower looks like it has a nest at the top of it.

There have been people over the years that have left their hummingbird feeders 
up well into the Fall and have helped straggler Ruby-throated and even other 
rarity hummingbirds. Into November, it is occasional for extreme wandering of 
species, and hummingbird feeders left up can provide crucial aid for these

[cayugabirds-l] Exhibit talk @ Mann: NBB Prof. Mike Webster on New Media Specimens in Ornithology

2017-06-05 Thread Marty Schlabach

Sound and Feature: How Media Specimens are Revolutionizing Modern Ornithology
Exhibit lecture by Mike Webster (Dept. of Neurobiology & Behavior / The 
Macaulay Library, Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Friday, June 9, 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Stern Seminar Room (160), Mann Library

For centuries ornithological research has relied on the study of specimens to 
reveal the ecology, life histories and evolution of birds. Today we can also 
collect a new type of specimen, the "media specimen": an audio or video 
recording of a bird in nature. These recordings capture key aspects of wild 
bird behavior in ways that traditional physical specimens simply cannot. 
Drawing from his own work in Australia and North America as well as that of 
other Cornell scientists and students, Dr. Mike Webster of the Cornell Dept. of 
Neurobiology and Behavior will show how media specimens are advancing 
modern-day research aimed at understanding and conserving birds and how 
inexpensive new technologies are allowing everyday "citizen scientists" to 
collect and use media specimens. Efforts such as these are fostering broader 
participation in ornithological science, a better understanding of birds at 
continental and even global scales, and deeper appreciation of the natural 
world by a world-wide public.

Following Dr. Webster's talk, please join us for a reception in the Mann 
Gallery, in celebration of the new exhibit: "Around the World and Back: 
Building Cornell's Nature Collections Through 
Exploration."



Other reunion 2017 events at Mann Library include:

  *   Making It at the Library: 3D printing and makerspace 
demo,

Along the west shore of Cayuga Lake we occasionally have up to three 
Hummingbirds at a time at either feeder. So far this spring (?) - we have seen 
ONE female sitting on the edge of a feeder looking away from the cottage - none 
other. Might this be a result of the late and frequent cold snaps and the 
subsequent lack of either floral food or human assistance?

Info and/or assurance gratefully accepted.

For years, we’ve put out orange halves for the orioles, but never had an oriole 
feed from one.  This year we put out grape jelly, and so far no orioles have 
come to the feeder, even though we have seen and heard them.  But, today we had

FOY RUBY THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, male, at my feeder now.
Besides 2 B. Orioles eating oranges impaled on small tree branches near deck,  
2 G. Catbirds are eating grape jelly I had originally put out for the Orioles. 
Second year I have seen that.

While helping up & down Lansing Station Rd for our neighborhood clean up day, I 
heard a few B. Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, & Black Throated Green 
Warblers singing. Saw/heard a pair of American Redstarts, the first female of 
that sp. I have seen here. I also saw a little Chipping Sparrow bathing 
vigorously in a water-filled small ditch by a driveway.
Didn't have binocs along since they get in way of picking up & carrying junque, 
plus it was raining steadily, so didn't get to look at some other birds present 
in the gloom.

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Goslings @ MNWR

2017-05-06 Thread Marty Schlabach
Yes, we saw 7 goslings in that area yesterday.  

One of them seemed to have mobility issues and seemed to be stuck on its belly, 
not able to get its feet under it.  The parents kept trying to lead the 
goslings away, but that one little guy just couldn't walk.  We thought it might 
be deformed or something that was preventing it from walking. The adults would 
return to it, when they saw it wasn't following.   But, suddenly it was walking 
along with the others, so we weren't sure what prevented it from following 
before.

Posted: 27 Apr 2017 05:30 AM PDT
By Gretchen Rings
Reference & Interlibrary Loan Librarian
The Field Museum

On November 5, 1950, The Field Museum [the Chicago Museum of Natural History at 
the time] Curator of Mammalogy Colin Sanborn received an extraordinary letter, 
which began as follows:
Dear Colin,
I should like to make a rather unusual request of you. Some twenty-five years 
ago I gave the then Field Museum several specimens from my bird collection. 
Included among them was a habitat group of Kirtland's Warblers, consisting of 
the two adults and four nestlings in the nest, mounted by Ashley Hine...I know 
that the Museum used to have souvenir photograph postcards of many of its 
mounted groups on sale to the public. Could you find out for me whether such a 
photo was ever made of this Kirtland's Warbler group, and if so, let me know 
how I can get one?

It wasn't the request itself that was so unusual: individuals (or their 
descendants) frequently inquired about a specimen donated to the museum. It was 
the letter's author, in this case, that made it stand out: Nathan Leopold, Jr. 
Prior to becoming part of the infamous duo Leopold and Loeb, convicted for 
kidnapping and murdering Bobby Franks, a 14-year-old neighbor, Leopold had been 
a birder and ornithologist. Writing from prison in Joliet, Illinois, he hoped 
to receive a photograph of a group of specimens he'd donated as a very young 
man.

In addition to specimens from Loeb--The Field Museum also has a Cooper's hawk 
and a Praying Mantis--the Library owns one of only a couple of known extant 
copies of a booklet called Spring Migration Notes of the Chicago 
Area<http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/182895> that Leopold helped 
compile. He was just 15-years-old at the time the booklet was published.
[https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-yPIs5Mh19ZE/WP5lgh-XjBI/Gw4/vr1GZWCi5rYmWNugEBDYnXI90sfwVU2vwCLcB/s400/springmigrationn00wats_0003.jpg]<https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-yPIs5Mh19ZE/WP5lgh-XjBI/Gw4/vr1GZWCi5rYmWNugEBDYnXI90sfwVU2vwCLcB/s1600/springmigrationn00wats_0003.jpg>

Spring migration notes of the Chicago area. [Chicago]: [G.W. Lewis Pub. Co.]. 
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/47497174. Digitized by the Field Museum 
of Natural History Library.


Joshua Engel, a research assistant in the Field Museum's Integrative Research 
Center writes, "This little booklet has so much history, it's hard to know even 
where to begin. Let's start with the fact that the first author, James D. 
Watson, is the father of one of the most famous scientists of the 20th century, 
also named James D. Watson<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Watson>, who 
along with Francis Crick is credited with the discovery of the structure of 
DNA. But that's the least of it. The third author is even more intriguing. A 
budding young ornithologist, Nathan 
Leopold<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_and_Loeb> would spend the bulk of 
his adult life in prison for the murder of Bobby Franks, one of the most famous 
crimes of the 20th century."

James D. Watson the younger describes how his father met Leopold, "It was in 
Jackson Park in 1919 that Dad had met the extraordinarily talented but socially 
awkward sixteen-year-old University of Chicago student Nathan Leopold, who was 
equally obsessive about spotting rare birds. In June 1923, Leopold's wealthy 
father financed a birding expedition so Nathan and my dad could go to the jack 
pine barrens above Flint, Michigan, in search of the Kirtland warbler. In their 
pursuit of this rarest of all warblers, they were accompanied by their fellow 
Chicago ornithologists George Porter Lewis and Sidney Stein, and in addition by 
Nathan's boyhood friend Richard Loeb, whose family helped form the growing 
Sears, Roebuck store empire."

The Field Museum's copy of Spring Migration Notes of The Chicago 
Area<http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/182895>, published in 1920, is now 
stored in the Mary W. Runnells Rare Book 
Room<https://www.fieldmuseum.org/science/research/area/rare-book-room>. Because 
of its historical value, it was added to the Biodiversity Heritage 
Library<http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/>, including the type-written, 
hand-signed letter on page four from young Nathan Leopold to Ruthven Deane, a 
leading ornithologist of his time and a resident of Chicago, who eventually

2017-03-17 Thread Marty Schlabach
We had numerous small flocks fly over our house this morning.  Probably 20+ 
flocks of 50-100 birds, coming from the direction of Cayuga Lake and flying 
southwest.  Not sure where they were headed.

This evening about 5:30pm there was an enormous flock of snow geese on the 
ground in fields east of Co Rd 129 between Wycoff and Munson Rds in Ovid.   I 
would guess 20-30 acres (and perhaps more) just covered with snow geese.

intersection, on the west side of 129, about 150' from the road on a small

P.S.  I was thinking about Marty Schlaback and how he spotted a Snowy Owl in a

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Snowy at Lott farm

2017-01-06 Thread Marty Schlabach
We were there about 4:30pm today.  We didn't spend much time looking, but 
didn't see a snowy at the airport, but did see one perched on top of the grain 
bins at the Lott farm along rt 414.  We did see a male northern harrier near 
the airport.

[cayugabirds-l] snowy, shrike, snow geese

2016-12-27 Thread Marty Schlabach
Mary Jean, Phil and I took a drive up to the Finger Lakes Regional Airport on 
Airport Rd. (or Martin Rd?) Seneca Falls to look for a snowy owl this 
afternoon.  We felt fortunate to find one along the west side of the runway, 
quite a distance from the road.  We then found a Northern Shrike along Seybolt 
Rd, in the area with the grown-over ponds, which is just west of Canoga.  As we 
headed toward home along Kings Corners Rd, we found another Snowy Owl in a 
field on the east side of Kings Corners Rd, just north of Ogden Rd.  Kings 
Corners Road is apparently also known as Fayette Varick Townline Rd.  A sizable 
flock of several thousand Snow Geese was in a field bounded on 3 sides by Rt 
414, Peterman Rd and Thrope Road.  Along the way this afternoon we also saw 
several Red Tailed Hawks, Kestrels and on Coopers Hawk.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] ID help? Whistling at night

I also last night heard a sound right outside of my bedroom window that I

I’ll defer to the experts but would not rule out Screech-owl. I’ve heard that 
also: clear descending rather than whinny descending but followed by other EASO 
distinct sounds, so concluded it was the same bird. I’ve been hearing EASO loud 
whinnies just in the last couple of weeks, first time this year, so I guess I 
have a male imoving around checking out the territory or advertising once again.

Dear all,

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's bird 
call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird heard last 
night.

The call was a long (1-2 s) descending clear whistle (not a whinny like a 
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a high note and ending quite low. It 
was repeated 3-4 times and then followed by a repeated whistle on a single, 
high note. The timbre was similar to a saw-whet owl, but the tempo was 
different.

It was heard at 1 AM at the border between a field and scrubby forest.

Eva

HI Carol and all,

I agree with Sue that they look like red-osier dogwood fruits, they're about 
the correct size. A few years back when I was photographing them at Myers, they 
were eating a lot of wild grape, both unripe and ripe, at this time of year, in 
addition to insects. I think it's pretty typical for them to switch to fruit at 
this season whether or not it's been dry. Have seen kingbirds do similar with 
wild raspberries and gray dogwood berries. A number of what we think of as 
insectivorous types switch to fruit when it's available, and the dogwoods in 
particular are high-fat fruits, good for fueling migration...red-eyed vireos 
and various warblers etc.

Birds have such COOL behaviors!

Hi Carol, those actually look more like Red-Osier Dogwood berries in its mouth 
to me.  I was surprised to see a pair of Eastern Kingbirds, another 
insectivore, eating berries yesterday morning - so maybe these birds are 
supplementing their diets with berries.  Maybe it's a seasonal behavior or 
maybe, because it's been so dry, it's another way to obtain fluids?

Update:  I have received two recommendations for native trees that will attract 
birds...would love to have more to add to a list to possibly give to the City 
of Ithaca forester and nurseries..., not sure if she has a list or what her 
list is...  has the CBC ever offered a "recommended" list?  It's one thing to 
go to a nursery and buy a proclaimed "bird attractor" bush or tree, but I'd 
prefer a list of birder-proclaimed native trees.  By the way, I bought a 
"native butterfly bush" from a reputable nursery and later learned the one I 
bought was considered "invasive" and controversial by some.

Here is a start:

Serviceberry, Amelancier arborea, white flowers spring, orange/gold fall, 30 
ft. after 20 years, purchased at Dickman's in Auburn

Chokecherry Canada Red, Prunus virginiana, 15 ft. after 3 years, purchased at 
Agway


Does anyone know anything about the Chanticleer Pear, Pyrus calleryana tree? 
native or non-native?  It flowers and holds small fruits thru winter, 25-35ft x 
15-25ft

RE: [cayugabirds-l] B. Orioles in Trumbull Corners - SUET!

2016-05-10 Thread Marty Schlabach
We also had orioles at our suet feeders, which I don't recall occurring in the 
past.  I've put out orange halves in years past, but never saw an oriole come 
to them.

Put up the hummingbird feeder last week, and hung it where a tube feeder with 
sunflower seed had been all winter.  The next morning there were 6 or 8 very 
confused goldfinches and house finches hanging out around that feeder.  Hummers 
showed up the next day.

Hi Cayugabirders,

I think it's very interesting how people are reporting orioles eating suet this 
spring. Maybe this has been reported in previous years, but I don't recall so. 
I'm wondering whether this change in diet is because so few of the flowering 
trees are out (at least where I live and in the Cornell Plantations Arboretum 
where I spend a lot of time). So the orioles are having a hard time finding 
enough food (they like to sip nectar from tree flowers) . BTW, many of the 
crabapples in the Arboretum were nailed by the super-cold snap a few weeks 
back...I've been looking closely...there are few viable flower buds on many of 
them, and leaves just struggling to come out now. The trees up here seem 
awfully bare for mid-May.

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Pergrine on Bradfield hall on the sotuwestern ledge

2015-11-05 Thread Marty Schlabach
I noticed a bird perched high up on the SW corner of Bradfield Hall on Cornell 
campus this morning about 9am, but walking directly underneath it, I wasn’t 
able to identify it.  There has been an increase of whitewash at that corner on 
the side of the building and on the ground.

[cayugabirds-l] hummers

2015-10-01 Thread Marty Schlabach
I just saw two hummingbirds at our feeder in Interlaken.  We haven't seen a 
hummer at our feeders since Sept 13.  These both look like female or young male 
ruby throated hummingbirds to me, but then I've been wrong before!  3 years ago 
we had a rufous hummingbird visit us for several weeks.  I've got some poor 
pictures, which I might post to Cayuga Bird Club facebook page.  Perhaps the 
weather brought in a couple of late migrants.

[cayugabirds-l] Purple Martins at Sheldrake Point

2015-04-12 Thread Marty Schlabach
Mary Jean and I made a quick birding trip up the west side of Cayuga Lake late 
this afternoon.  We saw a nice array of birds but perhaps the highlight was 
seeing that purple martins had returned to the martin houses at Sheldrake 
Point, in the bay just across from the winery.  We have not yet seen an osprey 
at the Footes Corners Road nest.  There are sticks on the platform, but I don't 
know if they are just the ones moved from the power pole to the platform when 
the platform was put up, or if nesting material has been added by ospreys this 
year.

The Footes Corners Rd osprey nest, town of Covert, which got its start last

[cayugabirds-l] Shorteared Owls in Ovid

2014-12-31 Thread Marty Schlabach
Mary Jean, Phil and I went looking for Shorteared Owls this evening in Covert, 
Lodi and Ovid.  Left home about 4:30pm, drove west from rt 96 on Kellys Corners 
Rd, then north on Keady Rd to Wycoff Rd.  Headed west on Wycoff toward rt 96A 
and then returned east on Wycoff Rd to the intersection of Wycoff and Rock 
River Rd.  The only bird activity of interest up to that point was a small 
flock of Horned Larks.

We saw our first shorteared owl from Wycoff Rd northeast of the intersection 
about 5:05pm, perched on the rack of a hay wagon well back from both roads.  We 
then moved to Rock River Rd, hoping for a better look.  It was comparably 
distant from the road, not really a better or closer view.  We watched it for 5 
minutes or so and then saw two shortears in flight against the clear and 
somewhat brighter sky northwest of the intersection.  We later saw two in 
flight this time to the east.  We last saw them about 5:20pm.  The most we saw 
at one time were 3 shorteared owls.

Good birding!

[cayugabirds-l] Area 7 in need of additional counters for Ithaca Christmas Count

2014-12-30 Thread Marty Schlabach
Area 7 is in need of additional counters.

Area 7 is on the west side of the count circle.  The southern tip begins at the 
edge of Treman Park, west just past Sheffield Rd., north to just south of 
Garrett Rd meeting rt. 89 and west of the Cayuga Inlet.  The waterfront and the 
city are covered.  The territory available includes country and suburban roads 
with a variety of habitats.

And, we meet at Kelly's Dockside at noon for lunch and sharing stories of our 
morning birding.

We can assign a section to you or have you join another birder.

Call or email me if interested.

This morning, about 8am, I thought I faintly heard snow geese.  I looked up and 
at first didn't see them, but then did see two very large flocks, quite high.  
I would estimate 3-400 geese heading south.

We were awakened at 12:30 am this morning to the pleasant but intense whinnying 
and trilling of a screech owl outside our window. It was alternating between 
the two calls. A lovely serenade surprise for our location.

[cayugabirds-l] OT: Help transcribe William Brewster's field notes

2014-07-07 Thread Marty Schlabach
I'm involved in a funded project called Purposeful gaming and BHL: engaging the 
public in improving and enhancing access to digital texts 
http://biodivlib.wikispaces.com/Purposeful+Gaming  More info about the project 
can be found at the URL provided, but the core of the project is that a game 
will be developed to allow players to correct words in scanned texts that the 
computer using optical character recognition software (OCR) did not recognize 
correctly.  If the error rate is above a certain threshold on a page, the whole 
page will be transcribed by users.  In addition, users are invited to 
transcribe handwritten text, which is usually not recognizable by OCR software. 
  An example is the hand written field notes of William Brewster (1851-1919), 
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/bibliography/61138#/summary .

Here is how you can help:

Earlier in the month, the Purposeful Gaming team launched ten digitized volumes 
of William Brewster's field notes on two crowdsourcing transcription websites:

Biodiversity Volunteer Portal (BVP) Biodiversity Volunteer Portal 
(BVP)http://volunteer.ala.org.au/, a collaboration between the Australian 
Museum and the Atlas of Living Australia;

FromThePage http://transcribebhl.mobot.org/ , a transcription tool developed by 
Ben Brumfield.

Try your hand at transcribing Brewster's fascinating field notes on either site 
and enjoy his idyllic writing while helping to unlock his valuable observations 
for the benefit of all!

Learn more: 
http://blog.biodiversitylibrary.org/2014/06/transcribing-field-notes-of-william.html
Following transcription Brewster's field notes will not only be available for 
viewing on the Biodiversity Heritage Library site 
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/bibliography/61138#/summary , but will also 
be searchable.

The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is a consortium of natural history and 
botanical librarieshttp://biodivlib.wikispaces.com/BHL+Consortium+Membership 
that cooperate to digitize and make accessible the legacy literature of 
biodiversity held in their 
collectionshttp://biodivlib.wikispaces.com/Collection+Development+Policy and 
to make that literature available for open access and responsible use as a part 
of a global biodiversity commons.

I'd be happy to field any questions that might come up and have fun unlocking 
the field notes of a leading American ornithologist.

Best,
Marty

RE: Re:[cayugabirds-l] Osprey nests.

2014-04-22 Thread Marty Schlabach
Thanks to Bill for noting that there is a west side of the lake as well!

For several years there has been an osprey nest at the top of the light tower 
of the former landing strip at the Seneca Army Depot.  It is visible from rt 
96a, less than a mile past the entrance to the veterans cemetery and before you 
get to the entrance to Sampson Park.  It is sort of behind a relatively new 
dairy operation on the east side of rt 96a.

There has also been an osprey nest in downtown Geneva at the top of the Verizon 
cell tower.

Thank you so much Fritzie for rechecking and notating the exact locations of 
the osprey nests in your area. As I said in my earlier e-mail, I am trying to 
keep track of all the osprey nests on Cayuga Lake and am starting to collect 
information on Seneca Lake. Your list of active nests is invaluable to my 
efforts is greatly appreciated.

Do you have any anecdotal data on how long these individual nests have been in 
use by ospreys? Any recollections, no matter how approximate, may be useful. I 
know you are very busy and will patiently await your reply. Meanwhile, I hope 
you are enjoying this delightful, albeit changeable, weather and the birds it 
brings.

[cayugabirds-l] Book talk with Harry Greene: Tracks and Shadows, March 6

2014-02-27 Thread Marty Schlabach
Of potential interest to subscribers to this list who live in the Ithaca area.  
Feel free to forward to anyone who might be interested in this talk.   --Marty


Tracks and Shadows: Field Biology as Art
Book talk by Harry W. Greene
Thursday, March 6, 4:00 pm
Stern Seminar Room, 160 Mann Library
Harry Greene's new book Tracks and Shadows: Field Biology as Art (University of 
California Press; October 2013) is not only about the making of a field 
biologist, but an eccentric mediation on natural history. Both an absorbing 
autobiography and a celebration of the beauty in nature, the book explores 
multiple themes including the destruction of habitat and loss of biodiversity, 
the nuts and bolts of field research and teaching, how natural historians help 
save species from extinction, and the sheer poetry of field biology.

Greene is professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University 
and a Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow. Other publications include the 
award winning book Snakes: The Evolution of Mystery in Nature. His books 
promote biological diversity, ecology, behavior and conservation-the core 
components of scientific literacy.

Light refreshments will be available throughout the event, and books will be 
available for purchase and signing.

Mann Library is located off of Tower Road on the Cornell University Ag Quad. 
For more information visit 
mannlib.cornell.edu/events-exhibitshttp://mannlib.cornell.edu/events-exhibits

Mary Jean and I saw two short eared owls in Ovid, on Center Rd, near to and 
just east of County Road 129, about 5:20pm today.  Drove several other roads in 
the area as well, but didn't see any at other locations or any snowy owls.

[cayugabirds-l] Cattle Egret in Seneca County

2013-11-02 Thread Marty Schlabach
Driving on Rt. 96 near Romulus about 10:30am this morning I saw what I 
suspected to be a Cattle Egret in a field with some dairy cows.  I didn't have 
my binos with me to check it out.  About 1pm today, Mary Jean and our 
granddaughter Emma and I went back and confirmed it to be a Cattle Egret.  We 
watched it for about 15 minutes and then it flew off while we were there.  We 
drove around the area checking out other fields with cattle or horses but 
didn't see it again.

More specific location is route 96 across the road from the Seneca County Law 
Enforcement Center in a field with a mixed herd of Jersey and Holstein dairy 
cattle.

monarchs when, coming right overhead, was a COMMON NIGHTHAWK, also heading 
south.
Anyone still have humming birds? Last saw ours 6 Sept. gleaning bugs from the 
cosmos buds  blossoms.
No frost here this a.m. ... just HEAVY dew.

[cayugabirds-l] Ovid Short-eared owls

2013-03-09 Thread Marty Schlabach
This evening, Mary Jean, Emma and went to Ovid to pick up Chinese takeout, and 
on the way home, about 6:30pm we saw 3 short-eared owls along Center Rd, just 
east of Co Rd 129.  We also drove along Rock River Rd and Wycoff Rd, but didn't 
see any.

That's what happens when you're only a predator-wannabe.  Crows just don't have

Susie  I just watched a drama in the field across from the house.  An AMER. 
CROW  found somehow (prob. sound) a Microtus (vole) nest under the snow. Crow 
ripped it out and threw it on the crusty snow.  The vole took off.  Crow 
stabbed it several times. Vole refound nest and hid under it. Crow flipped nest 
away and confronted vole.  Vole did its best, leaping at the crow, teeth bared, 
crow nimbly dodging.  Crow whacked it again several times.  Vole succumbed.  
Crow eyed meal, then suddenly flew off P.D.Q..  We thought : wtf! as a 
RED-TAILED HAWK blasted in, talons bared, snatched dead vole and exited scene.  
Crow returned, tore up grass nest in frustration, then took off.

[cayugabirds-l] CBC Field Trip: Short-eared Owls in Ovid, Sunday

2013-02-09 Thread Marty Schlabach
   Cayuga Bird Club field trip tomorrow, Sunday, will be for short-eared owls 
in Ovid.  They have been hard to come by this year, but we'll give it a try.  
Mary Jean and I did some scouting on Friday and found one roosting in 
evergreens along Rock River Road near Wycoff Road.  On other previous attempts 
over the last couple of months, we have often come up empty, and saw at most, 
just one.

   And no, the Rufous Hummingbird is no longer coming to our feeder!!  Other 
birds seen yesterday and today in that general area included horned larks, snow 
buntings, red-tailed hawks, and kestrels.

http://www.cayugabirdclub.org/

[https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yT/r/K6_TY47YS3x.png]

Leader: Marty Schlabach, Mary Jean Welser, and Michele Mannella.

This trip will start at Marty and Mary Jean's home on Powell Road in Covert and 
will carpool to the area around the intersection of Wycoff Road and Rock River 
Road in Ovid. The group will look for whatever can be found until it gets dark 
enough for Shorteared Owls to appear. Bring a spotting scope, if you have one, 
in case the owls are far off the road.

Directions to Marty and Mary Jean's place: From Ithaca, take Route 89 north. 
After the Cayuga Creamery (all birders know where that is!), take the first 
left onto County Road 141. Then take the next left onto Powell Road. Their 
house is the first one on the left, and number 8407 is on the mailbox. Contact 
Marty at (315) 521-4315 with any questions.


3:00pm until 6:00pm

[cayugabirds-l] Christmas Count Area VII would welcome more participants

2012-12-27 Thread Marty Schlabach
Area VII of the Ithaca Christmas Count could use more counters.  Area VII is 
essentially the western most portion of the Ithaca count circle.  West of the 
lake, west of Rts 13A and 34/13.  There is a mix of city, rural, driving and 
walking in Area VII.  At noon, we all meet at Kelly's Dockside for lunch and 
sharing our sightings, and then head out to finish what isn't yet covered.

Please join us.

[cayugabirds-l] Ovid Short-eared owl

2012-12-27 Thread Marty Schlabach
Yesterday, late in the day, Mary Jean, Phil and I hit the areas around Wycoff 
Rd  Rock River Rds, and Center Rd  Co Rd 129, Town of Ovid, where we've seen 
short-eared owls in past years.  Michele Manella reported one shortear at 
Wycoff and Rock River recently.  But, we came up empty.

This afternoon, we paid those areas a visit again and we had one short-eared 
owl about 4:45pm on Center Rd., just east of County Rd 129, but nothing at 
Wycoff and Rock River.  Horned Larks seem to be plentiful, with anywhere from a 
few to a dozen or more flying up from the roadside every couple hundred yards.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] redpolls

2012-12-25 Thread Marty Schlabach
Must be Bill and Shirley are the sharing type, in that we now have a red poll 
or two at our feeder as well, just up the road outside of Interlaken.  Phil and 
Mary Jean saw two the other day, but today was the first day I saw one, a very 
nice Christmas present.  Lotsa goldfinches and more house finches than I've 
seen in quite a few years, but no siskins.

Our redpoll count just doubled from yesterday:  we now have TWO.  Ta Da!

About 17 siskins on niger feeders.  When they left, the resident goldfinches 
returned, about 18 of them.  Hard to count 'em when they outnumber the perches 
on the feeders.

The snow here (1 to2 inches) has made this a very birdy morning.  We must have 
been very good this year, to be so rewarded.
