Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow geese

HI, I am not sure how to report but there is a probable injured snow goose

morning when I drove by and was still there when I came home. He is all

[cayugabirds-l] Nesting action - Ithaca College

2018-04-24 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
Behind the campus is the Ithaca College Natural Lands area
http://www.icnaturallands.com/about
On days like we are having this week, it's a great place to go at lunch for
a good walk.

My office is on the top floor of one of the Towers and faces this area as
well. I've been watching a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks build a nest at the top
of a pine tree so I struck out yesterday to find them up close.

I know what tree they are in but failed to see the nest. I did see an
American Crow flying with nest materials as well but once he spotted me, he
rested on a branch and wouldn't reveal where he was going.

Those woods are also filled with Pileateds and other woodpeckers. And
randomly, co-workers have shown me pictures of hawks who roost on the
building outside the office windows including a Cooper's last year.

[cayugabirds-l] Pine Siskins? Really?

2015-12-22 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
I think I have a flock (~20) pine siskins at the top of a tall maple. I can
see streaks, the shape of their heads and tails and definitely can hear
them chattering away.
I'm in the hills of Candor where the sun is actually shining this afternoon.

  Our pair of Baltimore orioles arrived 3 or 4 days ago.  I heard the male
 soon after they arrived, but only got a glimpse of him last evening.
  Every year I struck by how difficult it can be to get sight of such a
 noisy, bright orange bird.
  I'm glad they're back.

 Yesterday morning through a window I watched three Crows walking in the

 One picked up the actual material (bits of grapevine, I think) while the
 second gave encouragement. The third was quietly attentive, perhaps in
 watch-and-learn mode.

 Think I'll put out some horse hair for them.

 halfway out to the Jetty Woods from the golf course clubhouse and look
 towards the east until you see the big stock nest near the top of a bare
 tree- the one with the owl sitting on top.

  If you continue on out through the woods to the jetty, you'll get a
 great look at the Red-throated Loon in the inlet and lots of waterfowl
 along the ice edge.

  Good luck!

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma yesterday

2014-11-30 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
Hi - drove up to see the center before it closed for the season as I had
never been. Well not in a very very long time.
Drove around the main loop. Saw about 3 juvenile Bald Eagles, lots of Snow
Geese and Canadas. Highlight for me was an American Pipit (that I needed
help identifying). He was a busy little guy, hopping along the ice on the
shore checking out muskrat houses.
Speaking of muskrats, there was also a man trapping there. Judging by the
number of flags and the number of muskrat dens, he is quite a busy guy too.
I didn't check out any other pools etc as it was pretty cold with that wind
yesterday.

This sounds great!

Can anyone provide info about paddling around MNWR? Is it even allowed or
perhaps just at certain times? I remember an organized trip last year.
Thanks.


On Thu, Jul 17, 2014 at 1:03 PM, Dave Nutter nutter.d...@me.com wrote:

 This is the second year that the management of the Montezuma National
 Wildlife Refuge is allowing a limited number of birding field trips onto
 dikes around Knox-Marsellus and Puddler Marshes, where the refuge otherwise
 prohibits public access. These are the scheduled trips and leaders of which
 I am aware:

 Sunday 27 July, 8am, Dave Nutter of Cayuga Bird Club
 Sunday 17 August, 8am, Eaton Birding Society
 Saturday 23 August, 11am, Mike Tetlow of Rochester Birding Association
 Sunday 31 August, 8am, Dave Nutter of Cayuga Bird Club
 Sunday 21 September, 830am, Paul Anderson of Cayuga Bird Club
 Saturday 27 September, 11am, Mike Tetlow of Rochester Birding Association

 The trips are hosted by members of various bird clubs, but all the trips
 are open to all birders, whether or not they are members of any bird club,
 and there is no fee. However everyone should pre-register with the Refuge
 staff by calling 315-568-5987. All field trips will meet at the given
 time at the Refuge Visitor Center on NY-5/US-20 then caravan to the site.
 This includes a .8 mile drive on a single lane dirt road with deep puddles,
 so consider car-pooling to reduce wear on the road and the number of muddy
 cars. After that we will be walking on the dikes. Be prepared for dewy
 vegetation and biting insects. Bring binoculars and, if you have one, a
 spotting scope as well. Even though we will be closer to the birds than the
 usual roadside viewpoints allow, the impoundments are huge, and many birds
 will still be distant enough that a scope will make a big difference for
 identification and enjoyment. Another great thing about a scope is that one
 can aim it at a distant bird, then let someone else have a look at that
 same bird, so please be willing to share views and ID skills, especially
 with folks who don't have a scope.

 Maintaining inland habitat for migrating shorebirds is a challenge which
 Montezuma NWR has taken on successfully for a number of years. As a result
 this is a great place for birds and a great opportunity for us. The
 southbound migration is already well underway for shorebirds which nested
 in boreal and tundra regions far to our north and west. Already in addition
 to the Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers which nest here, there have been
 Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Solitary, Pectoral, Stilt, Least, and
 Semipalmated Sandpipers, Sanderling, and Short-billed and Long-billed
 Dowitchers. Some of these have been few or transient, and others numerous
 or growing in numbers. We expect several additional species of shorebirds
 to pass through or join the throng for awhile as the season progresses.
 Shorebirds will be our focus, yet we expect and welcome distraction by
 multiple species of gulls, terns, raptors, ducks in challenging eclipse
 plumage, herons, assorted other waterbirds such as cormorants, grebes, and
 rails, plus swallows, sparrows, icterids, warblers, and other songbirds
 along the way. That said, there are no guarantees as to what birds will be
 present and cooperative. You just have to be there to find out.

[cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle in Candor

2014-02-04 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
Had an interesting ride in to work today. Drove by a cornfield that
was filled with crows. Then I realized a mature Bald Eagle was on the
ground with them. I turned around thinking I could grab a good picture
but spooked them all. The eagle crossed the road and perched in a
large tree that overlooks a pheasant farm.

Within a half mile I spotted a Cooper's Hawk catching the morning sun
from top of a tree and then 2 puffed up Red Tails sharing another
tree.

It was interesting to see the eagle up in the hills where I live
though. There is no large creek to speak of. I know there have been
some in the past who have remained around Catatonk Creek around the
American Legion in Candor but have never seen one in a field. Since I
raise poultry I am hoping he doesn't stick around too long. o_O

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Fwd: [GeneseeBirds-L] Duck Hunting Rules and enforcement

Late duck season is 12/28-1/12 in our zone. For the most part everyone

  Here is a link to Migratory Bird hunting regulations.
 http://www.dec.ny.gov/regs/4047.html  Section Q addresses the illegality of
 not retrieving carcasses as follows: q) Wanton waste of migratory game
 birds. No person shall kill or cripple any migratory game bird pursuant to
 this section without making a reasonable effort to retrieve the bird, and
 retain it in his actual custody, at the place where taken or between that
 place and either:

 (1) his automobile or principal means of land transportation;

 (2) his personal abode or temporary or transient place of lodging;

 (3) a migratory bird preservation facility;

 (4) a post office; or

 (5) a common carrier facility.

 ·   So seeing any hunter leaving dead birds warrants a
 call to the DEC environmental conservation officer at the following: TIPP
 DEC is a 24-hour telephone hotline that is also referred to as Turn in
 Poachers and Polluters. It is answered by live dispatchers. The TIPP phone
 number is1-800-TIPP DEC (1-800-847-7332). Callers may request to file a
 complaint anonymously.

 I have also called 911 and asked for the DEC officers but would rather leave
 that number for human emergencies.

 Hope for good, safe hunters and keep your head down until January 13th.

[cayugabirds-l] Aurora, Mucklands

2013-12-28 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
Drove up Rt 90 today. Looked everywhere but no owls. Didn't realize it
was opening day of duck season. What I did see -
Drove down around Long Point winery and to the park. No owls but the
crows were having a good day poking through the corn fields. No birds
at the park.
Aurora - hundreds of Canadas and black ducks on the water. Two bald
eagles soared over the shoreline.
Locks - there was a belted kingfisher perched on a boathouse at the
last cottage before the locks. Lots of snow geese on the ice.
Mucklands - stopped at the potato building on Rt 31. Far from the road
to the south, snow geese filled the corn fields. To the north a flock
of snow buntings landed in the field and there were 2 more bald eagles
perched in a far tree in the same line as the large antenna.

The mucklands are incredible! It was my first time there, I hope to go
back there a lot.

At the Fargo I heard that there were some snowies hanging around
Genoa. Not sure where though.

[cayugabirds-l] Diving bird, Dorchester Park

2013-07-14 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
OK OOB I know, but I thought I knew what he was when I saw him, and
now that I have looked him up I think I am wrong.

I went kayaking at Dorchester Park (Whitney Point Lake) and towards
the middle was a lone bird who was diving for breakfast. I  thought he
was a grebe, but the only one who matches up with his size and shape
is a western grebe.

He had a dash of rust on top of his head, a yellow to black beak that
was elongated, dark body and I am pretty sure dark feet. Bright eye.
He kept it on me as I paddled around him but never showed any great
concern until a motorboat went by and he took off flying. Although he
was black and white from underneath, I don't recall such a contrast
when he was on top of the water; the sun could have made his coloring
odd when in the sky.

It was my first trip out to big water (well bigger than our pond) so I
was nervous about taking my phone out to snap a pic. Does this bird
sound like anything any of you know?

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Raptors near Ithaca Airport

2013-03-25 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
I think the Harrier was there again today. He soared over the field
that looks like a practice ground for the fire department and then
perched on the fire tower for quite some time, upsetting a crowd of
geese by the sounds of it.
This is my regular walking route at lunchtime, and I obviously need to
bring my binos so I can glass those fields better!

 After going on the Spring Field Ornithology class field trip this morning
 (in the snow  wind), Ann Mitchell and I decided to take a quick trip over
 to the Ithaca airport.

 It was raptor day over there! We drove along Snyder Road and saw an
 AMERICAN KESTREL, probably female, fly off the airport fence into the field
 to the south.
 Drove to Mohawk Rd. and didn't see anything until we returned down Snyder
 towards Cherry and Warren Rds.
 Over the grassy areas near the junk cars by the fence we saw a light phase
 ROUGH LEGGED HAWK soaring and hovering over the fields inside the airport
 fence. After admiring that bird, we came around the corner approaching
 Cherry Road and saw a beautiful male NORTHERN HARRIER soaring and hovering
 over the fields there.

 When we turned left off Cherry into Warren Rd., we again saw the ROUGH
 LEGGED HAWK and then possibly the same KESTREL over the field west of Warren
 Road and adjacent to the Borg Warner factory.  Just down the road from that
 field, on the airport fence east of the road, was perched a RED TAILED HAWK,
 then as we drove south I saw another RED TAILED HAWK perched on a branch
 right over the road to the west!

 I drove Ann back to her car at the O Lab, and yet another RED TAILED HAWK
 sat in a tree on the south side of Rt. 13.  As I returned down Warren Road
 heading north to go home, I spotted two TURKEY VULTURES soaring over the
 woods west of Warren Rd. near the airport entrance.

[cayugabirds-l] Lone snow goose, Candor

2013-01-14 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
On my way in this morning, there was a lone snow goose in a field on
Honeypot Road. Hard to say if he was injured or not.
It was notable imo because you never see just one goose this time of year.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] NORTHERN SHRIKE east of end of Cherry Rd, Lansing,...

One was still there today; however migrated across the road to inside
the airfield. He hovered a while and then retreated to perch on top of
an orange post as a plane took off.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] More Snow Geese depart

Mixed flocks streamed over Candor all morning, hard to see sometimes
as they flew higher than the snow.

 More Snow Geese are passing south out of the basin on this morning's brisk

[cayugabirds-l] Oddest sight - TV

2011-06-22 Thread Mo Barger Rooster Hill Farm
On my way in to work today, I saw the oddest sight. I was on Stevenson Rd.
going toward Garm Farm Rd. On the right where the compost and horses are
pastured were at least 25 TVs each perched on top of a fence post, all in a
line. It was absurd. If you have time, run out there now and check it out.
