That's great! Amazing photos! I JUST today saw an adult Red-headed Woodpecker at a feeder on Congress St., near the corner of Senenca St (not Seneca Road). I didn't submit it to eBird, but now I will. Possibly moved over a block or two? From:

Hi everyone, Very, very well put Ken. It is indeed a significantly tricky balance. My partner and I are organic grain (and hay) farmers in the Ithaca area (~1400 acres, involving numerous large fields), who make our living 100% from farming. We would also consider ourselves bird enthusiasts,

Very interesting, Pete. Bob, Diane, Ken and I watched Snow Buntings "digging" and rubbing in the snow today, too. One was practically flinging snow around cartoon style. In Lansing. From: on behalf of Peter Saracino

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Chickadee flock?

2021-02-20 Thread Rachel Lodder
I once encountered A LOT of chickadees along Cayuga Lake. There was a row of trees beside the road, and as a couple of us were birding the lake, there was a steady stream of chickadees moving past us in the trees headed north, so it was easy to tell they weren't the same birds. I don't see my

This afternoon, I was in our kitchen when there was a sudden gun-shot sound at the window. I rushed outside to look and saw a Sharp-shinned or Coopers Hawk with a Mourning Dove fall to the ground nearby in a flurry of feathers. My presence made the hawk fly off even though I dodged right back

[cayugabirds-l] Crows at my feeders

2019-01-21 Thread Rachel Lodder
Crows (4 to 12 at a time, who knows if they are the same birds, with more in the trees) have ascended upon my bird feeders, eating spilled seed on the ground. I've never had crows as a feeder bird before, although we have many around our grain farm. Pretty impressive; they look huge next to the

The redpolls on Tucker Rd., Trumansburg, are continuing. I was there today at 11 am and at noon, and they were there, feeding on seeds of velvet leaf, and foraging on the ground, and on the shoulder of the road. Rachel -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

I saw them there today at 2 pm, as well - maybe 130-40? It was really difficult counting them in the wind! They were about 1/4 mile down from the corner of Tucker and Aiken Roads, on the east side of Tucker, feeding in the brush and vegetation alongside the road. Very easy to see! Great!

So happy that I got some here at my feeders this morning (in Newfield, near Connecticut Hill)! Quite a few of them, I'd guess about 20, and the crabapple tree where the feeders are seemed full of them. Unfortunately, they flew off rather quickly. Hoping they return. American Tree Sparrows here
