[cayugabirds-l] Goldfinch eye disease

2022-05-20 Thread Peter McDonald
A number of goldfinch at my feeder in W. Danby have eye disease. They’re so 
disoriented they often land on me as a perch trying to find the feeders, which 
I scrub each week with warm water and a touch of bleach. Is the LabofO still 
keeping tabs on this? If so where to report my data. Other thoughts? It seems 
fatal since I’ve found three dead in past 2 months with the ‘glue eye’ 
diagnostic. I gather their deaths are probably for lack of feeding acumen due 
to blindness more than anything. (BTW I only get the list digest here so 
include me in any response.) Thx, Peter

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Waterthrush Question

2022-05-09 Thread Peter Saracino
Folks in "Naturally Curious Day By Day.", by Mary Holland, I read this
account of a northern waterthrush display and am wondering if anyone has
ever witnessed it. See below.
Thanks
Sar
"Northern waterthrush has a flight song/display it typically gives on its
breeding ground in the evening. The song usually starts with loud, sharp,
chips of increasing frequency, delivered from the ground or low perch. The
bird then flies upward through and above the canopy, singing snatches of
its primary song - but more quickly and for a longer period of time -
framed in a jumble of chips and song notes."

[cayugabirds-l] What sunshine can do!

2022-04-05 Thread Peter Saracino
Holy cow.
I'm holding a very blue, Bluejay's tail feather in my hand.
I can make it go from blue to brown and back to blue again simply by
changing the angle between it, me, and the light coming through the window.
Great example of how the play of light and structure of the feather
combines to produce the blue color in the bird.
Who needs pigment when you've got sunshine!!!??!!
(Smile).
Incredible.

[cayugabirds-l] The sounds of Life.

What sounds of Life tonight!
Such a cacophony as the Sun sets and the moon rises: peepers peeping,
woodcock peenting, cardinals whistling, robins in their vesper voices and
geese gabbling the moon!
Fills my heart with song.

[cayugabirds-l] "A World On The Wing...." Book Discussion

2022-03-15 Thread Peter Saracino
Hey folks.
If you're not busy tomorrow (Wednesday) from 11:30-12:30 come join us (the
folks at Geneva Reads) at the F.L. Welcoming Center in Geneva, NY. We'll be
having a  robust (hopefully) discussion/sharing centered on Scott
Weidensaul's recent book - "A World On The WingThe Global Odyssey of
Migratory Birds". The book is a fascinating window into the wonder of bird
migration as revealed by the latest technologies used to study it. It also
introduces readers to the scientists, researchers and conservation working
to preserve the phenomenon in the face of the many challenges these birds
encounter. Feel free to come even if you have read the book!!
Hope to see you there.

[cayugabirds-l] Cherishing the Simple things

2022-03-14 Thread Peter Saracino
The softly rising Sun is edging closer to its Equinox point along the
eastern horizon. A song sparrow is singing full throated from a nearby
lilac bush. A titmouse is calling "Peter, Peter, peter", reminding me of
lengthening days. And a ribbon-shaped skein of snow geese is heading
northward with a few hundred miles behind it and 1900 more to go. This
morning i am grateful to find hope in the simple things.

Everything in Nature is relational.  The iron in our blood, the calcium in

Nowhere is this relational reality more simply stated than in this Nature

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Sandhill Crane note

I'd check Knox Marcellus Marsh and the fields around Armitage Rd. and
Olmstead Road (Olmstead is a right hand turn off of Armitage as you head
west on Armitage). If you strike out there check the fields along Rt. 31 a
bit north of Knox Marcellus.
Good luck!

[cayugabirds-l] Sandhill Crane note

2021-12-03 Thread Peter Saracino
A word about my recent post about the cranes on Olmstead Rd. I was going
thru the flock counting them one by one going right to left. I got to my
three hundredth bird with a handful more to count when the entire group
went airborne.  It was quite a raucous spectacle.but left me with an
unfinished count. If I had to estimate I'd say there may have been 10 or 12
birds left to count that I was unable to count. Also I'm pretty sure the
number was even higher because there were birds down in a slough whose
heads would suddenly poke up unexpectedly amist the corn stubble.
I'm hoping they'll stay around the complex so someone can get an even more
accurate count.
For now, suffice it to say that our numbers grow with each passing season,
and that's a very good thing!
The word must be getting around the Crane nation (smile)

For we lovers of shorebirds (and red knots in particular). A wonderful,
inspiring blend of art and science.

This project – *A Cultural Cartography* – maps the Red Knot annual
migrations, from Southern to Northern Hemispheres and back, via the artwork
of the human communities with which the shorebirds have intersected for
thousands of years.

[cayugabirds-l] Johnson Rd./Phelps Township/Short-earred Owls

Tonight on Johnson Rd. in town of Phelps I had 4 harriers (1 male, 1
female, 2 immatures), a red-tailed hawk and 3, possibly 4 short earred
owls. It was so cool to see these beautiful owls after so long an absence.
More to come I'm sure.

[cayugabirds-l] Seneca Flats Shorebirds

2021-09-24 Thread Peter Saracino
> Hi folks.
> Just a heads up that now is a great opportunity to practice your
shorebird i.d. skills at the Refuge's Seneca Flats. The bird's are close,
you can get out of your car and there's a nice diversity of species to
examine: both yellowlegs, both dowitchers, pectoral sandpipers, stilt
sandpipers, semipalmated sandpipers, a few least sandpipers and even a
sanderling. I wouldn't be surprised to see a solitary sandpiper or two (we
had a few on the main pool). I think someone else has also recently posted

Event Details
Remarkable Raptors and Their Highways in the Sky
*Wednesday, September 15, 2021*

*4:00 - 5:00 p.m. EDT*


Learn about the incredible migratory journeys that remarkable raptors take
each year, and how people across North America count them for research.
Following this presentation you can head out to a hawk watch near you to
use these newfound skills!

Ryan MacLean is the Bird Education Specialist of the Greenwich Audubon
Center where he conducts in-person school programs, bird tours and private
adventures as well as virtual webinars on a variety of natural history
subjects. He was also the official hawk counter for Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch
for six seasons and has counted hawks professionally at the Braddock Bay
Spring Hawk Watch in Rochester, NY.
More information
Did you know that an average of 20,000 hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures
migrate over Greenwich Audubon Center’s Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch every fall?
Join Audubon naturalist Ryan MacLean to learn about their life histories
and how to identify these skilled hunters of the air.

*This presentation will cover:*

   - How and why do raptors migrate? What skills and tricks do they use on
   these journeys?
   - A brief history of hawk watching and how data is collected.
   - Identifying the major families of diurnal raptors in flight by shape
   and behavior (hawks, falcons, eagles, vultures).
   - When and where to go hawk watching.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Cedar waxwings fly catching?

2021-08-13 Thread Peter Saracino
I've watched them flying thru a big hatch  of midges along Flint Creek near
Phelps, NY. They'd perch over the stream, fly thru the swarm, and then
return to the perch. Then do it all over again!
Also watched a spotted sandpiper gobbling them up at the Refuge. It was on
foot. Reminded me of a velocciraptor!
Midges didn't stand a chance!!

This meteor shower will probably produce the greatest number of meteors on
the mornings of August 11, 12 and 13. On the peak mornings in 2021 – in the
early morning hours, when the most meteors will be flying – there’ll be no
moon to ruin on the show.
Clear skies!

[cayugabirds-l] Great Egrets at Montezuma

2021-07-16 Thread Peter Saracino
As is their custom this time of year, great egrets are beginning to return
to the Montezuma Refuge. On today's (Friday's) survey we counted 77 at Knox
Marcellus Marsh alone.
If you listen closely, one can almost hear the Season taking a breath.
While relatively quiet with respect to avifauna, the Refuge is alive with
summer wildflowers including swamp rose mallow, bladderwort, sweet clover,
sow thistle, pickerel weed, evening primrise and blue vervain, to mention a
few. Collectively they lend an air of "Summer" to the Refuge that is not to
be missed!

Great observations Dave. Thanks for sharing.
Seems we are the beneficiaries of a young bird testing its wings..and
the joy these creatures bring.

I played the song of a junco from IBird pro on one electronic device and
listened using Birdnet with another electronic device. The devices were
side by side.
Birdnet said it was a worm eating warbler. I did so after having been
fooled by juncos at Lindsay Parsons a number of times.
After birdnet failed I didn't feel so badly...

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Bird Sound ID apps

So far I think Merlin is more user-friendly. BirdNet seems a bit more
sensitive with respect to distant "noises"...
If I could only have one it'd be Merlin.
Just my 2 cents.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Chickadee learning

2021-07-05 Thread Peter Saracino
Interesting.
As the adult approaches the nest it often vocalized a "chickadee-Dee-Dee"
to announce its presence. I hear the wee-ones when I put my ear to the nest
hole. I'm giving  them as much privacy as they need although the adult
often flies over my head coming to and fro
And a pair of Carolina wrens has been very antsy of late coming onto the
porch and coming very close to me and squaking a way...
I hope they leave the chickadees be.
