Re: [cayugabirds-l] Orchard Oriole - Sapsucker Woods

2011-06-03 Thread Riko Stan
I saw an Orchard Oriole today as well, my very first!
We have a hummingbird feeder up by a huge window in the living room. I had
the screen down so I could clean it and as I was walking back to put the
screen back in I saw a small-medium sized bird sitting on the hummingbird
feeder. Something scared it(probably me) and it flew right in the house.
Both the cat and dog instantly started chasing the poor guy, so he flew into
windows multiple times before I could get the animals out of the room. I
opened all the windows, let him sit for a few minutes, then gently shooed
him out. He flew off just fine, so I hope he wasn't to hurt, but I got a
great close up view of him.

LOL! as I am writing this, a female cardinal flew into the room too. There
is the last suet cake right by the hummingbird feeder too. The female
cardinal usually hits it a few times a day, today she flew right in, did a
big loop into the dining room, and flew out another window.
Guess I better put the screens back up!

 Susan Newman and I just spent a few minutes watching the young male Orchard
 Oriole with Mark Chao at Sapsucker Woods.  The bird was singing constantly,
 spending most of his time in the trees in the gravel parking area at Kip's
 Barn (on the east side of the building).  Several times, he flew north
 across Sapsucker Woods Road to the flowering Black Locusts on the hill just
 across the road from the barn.  It was interesting to note that the bird was
 singing in flight as well, something I've never noticed in previous
 encounters with this species.  Mark also noticed that the bird is starting
 to show streaks of the chestnut-brown on his breast that will be more
 extensive as a full adult.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Tundra Swans

2010-10-01 Thread Riko Stan
That's funny. I also saw a few Tundra swans on the south end of Sodus Bay,
just north of Ridge Road. Mute swans are fairly common on East bay, but
these are the first Tundra swans I have seen in my admittedly short birding
life.

 Hi all,

 This morning on my drive to work I observed two immature Tundra Swans on a
 small wetland just south of Ithaca, at the T-intersection of Cox Road and
 Rte. 13 in Newfield.  This seemed like an early sighting for Tundra Swans,
 and a quick check in eBird showed only a handful of October sightings in
 NY.  The majority of reports are from the last week of October, and there
 are no October reports from Tompkins county.

 Good birding,
 Mike
