[cayugabirds-l] Refuge diving ducks

2022-11-26 Thread Peter Saracino
The redheads and scaup have arrived on the main pool. Virtually none during
yesterday's survey yet scores of  redheads and a good number of scaup this
morning! Many ring necks as welland at least 1500 swans (conservative
estimate) - presumably mostly tundra. A really cool spectacle.

[cayugabirds-l] Halloween (Short--eared) Owls

2022-10-30 Thread Peter Saracino
Hey all.
Been out on Johnson Road (Town of Phelps) the last few nights in the hopes
of seeing the short-eared owls that commonly winter here. Tonight, at about
6:30 I was looking at my phone and  about to head home when I was suddenly
startled by a very sharp "bark" very nearby. I looked up to see 2
short-eared owls cross the road very near my car and then head into the
field on the east side of the road!
Just in time for Halloween!!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lots o cranes

2022-10-29 Thread Peter Saracino
Astrid we had over 100 sandhills on our survey yesterday (Friday) at Knox
Marcellus Marsh on the Montezuma Refuge near Seneca Falls, NY.
If past history is any indication, I expect still more to arrive before
they finally leave us for the winter. Last year's fall totals surpassed 300
birds!,
It is quite a sight to see such large congregations of these beautiful
creatures.
Good luck!! Hope you're successful in your search.

[cayugabirds-l] Refuge snipe

2022-09-02 Thread Peter Saracino
Hi folks.
Just an FYI in case you've been looking for a Wilson's Snipe this season or
want to see more of them. Jackie Bakker picked out 10 of them in various
spots in Larue's Lagoon today on our survey. One grouping had 4 birds in
it. Another had at least 3.
Good luck. Visitor Center pool had lots of shorebirds early morning. Most
had vanished come noon time. The work of a peregrine?
Don't delay. These "wind birds" will soon leave us.
Be well.

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma Shorebird Walk Forecast

2022-08-19 Thread Peter Saracino
Reuben Stolfus scouted Knox Marcellus marsh this morning in preparation for
tomorrow's guided shorebird walk. He reports a variety of species including
lots of yellowlegs of both "flavors", a number of short-billed dowitchers,
good numbers of least sandpipers and semipalmated sandpipers, a few
pectoral sandpipers, one stilt sandpiper, 2 white-rumped sandpipers and a
good deal of very interesting non-shorebird species (including some very
beautiful sandhill cranes!). The visitor center pool is featuring some
semipalmated plovers as well. And two turnstones have been seen of late
(along with a glossy ibis) along the wildlife drive.
Andrea has informed me there are still some opening for tomorrow's guided
walk. It's a great opportunity to hone your shorebird i.d. skills. Lots of
knowledgeable, friendly,  patient folks very willing to help newcomers.
So don't delay. The Golden moments fly!

[cayugabirds-l] Tick carrying birds

2022-08-18 Thread Peter Saracino
Folks I've been asked about the Source of my recent letter concerning
tick-carrying birds. Herewith, the entry in its entirety:
Sar

"Several recent studies demonstrate that wild birds transport ticks and
their associated diseases during migration. In addition, a number of bird
species are able to contract Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacterium causing
Lyme disease, and transport it to uninfected ticks that parasitize the
birds for a blood meal. Ground feeding species (cardinals, catbirds, song
sparrows, robins) spend a significant amount of time foraging for food at
optimal height for ticks, and are excellent hosts and have all demonstrated
the ability to infect ticks with the Lyme-disease causing bacteria.

[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."

Thorpe Rd. (Just west of the airport) Just a bit north of the last (white)

[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.

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.

[cayugabirds-l] Snow goose XU97 Update

2022-03-13 Thread Peter Saracino
The banded snow goose I observed today is a female greater than 2
years old. She was banded in 2018 on Bylot Island, Nunavut XOA OSO, Canada.
Thanks to all who responded to my request for help with a special thanks to
Laurie Michelman for the tip on how to get quick feedback on the "band".
Cool stuff!

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!

To: Peter Saracino 



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

2021-11-03 Thread Peter Saracino
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.

I am advised that one CAN get out at Seneca Flats, but at the south end.
Unfortunately many folks get at the pull-off or wherever they see birds!!
Good luck with the shorebirds.

[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
a white-rumped sandpiper as well.
> A glossy ibis was still st Seneca Flats as of 3:40 pm today (Friday).
> Good luck and have fun.

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.
