[cayugabirds-l] OROR WIWA @ Swan Pen

2022-05-21 Thread Suan Yong
Orchard Oriole (first year male) and Wilson's Warblers were singing at the Swan 
Pen this morning, among other more usual birds.

On my bike ride home, heard Blackpoll Warbler near the wood chip piles opposite 
the Newman golf course, and also along the east hill recway at the NW corner of 
Hawthorn Orchard.

[cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn quiet

2022-05-02 Thread Suan Yong
Hawthorn orchards was quiet this morning, no big arrival due to overnight storm 
I guess. Only warblers were one yellow warbler and two common yellowthroats. 
Blue-headed vireo, eastern towhee, and wood thrush were the only other 
highlights. A few ruby-crowned kinglets and white-throated sparrows linger.

[cayugabirds-l] Winnowing snipes @ Goetchius

2022-04-24 Thread Suan Yong
Stopped by Goetchius wetland preserve this morning and was treated to a 
wonderful air show by a winnowing Wilson's Snipe. The unmistakable winnowing 
sound could be easily heard coming in waves one after the next, but spotting 
the bird in the sky was trickier until I figured out how high to look, 
sometimes almost directly overhead. The plentiful tree swallows flying didn't 
make the task any easier. The winnowing went on for up to five minutes at a 
time followed by a rest period where the snipe would call a repetitive call 
somewhat reminiscent of flicker or merlin. The sky dances lasted til around 
9am, but after a lull there was another dance while a second snipe flew around 
I think also winnowing but couldn't tell for sure. Not long after, three snipes 
were seen flying in a semi-coordinated manner as if for courtship, one flying 
high, the other two trailing a bit and somewhat lower.

The preserve itself is quite wet and a bit rough going, and you don't need to 
walk out to see the show. I think the view is just as good if not better from 
the road, in the open stretch just south of the trees with the FLLT parking 
area on Flat Iron road.

In the warm afternoon I paddled Jennings pond to the cattails at the south end 
where after flushing two pairs of Lesser Scaups I heard the grunts of a 
Virginia Rail. Amid the plentiful songs of Swamp Sparrows, a gentler trill from 
the nearby pines and junipers was identified as a Pine Warbler by Merlin Sound 
ID. I never saw the bird and can't rule out junco, but pine warbler seems like 
a strong possibility there. Also hanging around that end were a pair of Spotted 
Sandpipers. Later three Broad-Winged Hawks circled fairly low while squealing, 
with one seemingly chasing away another. These seem to be on territory rather 
than on the move.

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsuckers, pine, rusty, loons...

2022-04-16 Thread Suan Yong
Beginner bird walk at sapsucker woods this morning saw three loons flying over 
quite low over the parking lot, about three dozen rusty blackbirds moving 
across the road in waves, stopping atop some trees only long enough to 
frustrate my scoping attempts, a pine warbler in the woods pointed out to us by 
a couple of other birders who also alerted us to a palm warbler by the feeder 
blind, which perched wagging its tail briefly looking quite yellow before 
moving on. Three sapsuckers, two males and one female, danced around a tree 
right in front of us, while many many ruby-crowned kinglets we're singing and 
flitting about giving great eye level looks quite close.

Fun morning birding in the rain with two local guests.

Piglets corner is the lone tree in the field between Bluegrass Lane and Freese

FYI after my initial encounter with the grasshopper sparrow, it flew off and I 
didn't refind it on my way back. I was told to be patient as it will go off 
elsewhere then return to the piles.

Also in the area are Vesper Sparrows, along with plentiful Eastern Bluebirds

[cayugabirds-l] Orange Crowned @ Hawthorn

2021-05-07 Thread Suan Yong
Like yesterday hawthorn orchard was again relatively quiet today, nashville 
warblers continuing to be the dominant singer, with a good number of white 
crowned sparrows singing and foraging in the freshly and messily mown grass, 
joining a seemingly diminishing number of white throated sparrows.

Then Ken Kemphues chased me down to tell me that he'd just seen an 
orange-crowned sparrow after following an unfamiliar trill, and together we 
were able to relocate it. (So FOY credit goes to him.) The trill fits in the 
junco-chipping range, but doesn't stay in the same pitch like those songs, 
varying and slowly descending towards the end. At times it seemed to have an 
edge, and was somewhat reminiscent of a female cowbird's chatter.

[cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Blackburnian, Red-shouldered

2021-05-04 Thread Suan Yong
Hawthorn was really quiet this morning by the time I met Ken and Diane by the 
softball field looking for a handful of singing Nashville Warblers, who seemed 
the most numerous or at least vociferous. After a quiet walk through the north 
trail we heard a Blackburnian singing from the pine trees to the north, and 
after some patient staring and scanning that corner of the woods woke up, with 
a red-breasted nuthatch, ruby-crowned kinglets seemingly everywhere, and the 
Blackburnian eventually putting on a good show. Yesterday's black-throated 
green and chestnut-sided were apparently still there though silent today, and a 
surprise appearance by a yellow-throared vireo who eventually sang a few single 
phrases of its song. The "big sit" strategy (standing in one spot) seemed to 
work really well, as white throated sparrows started foraging in the leaf 
litter all around us.

After leaving Ken and Diane to head back to work, I heard from the nw pond the 
repeated call of a red-shouldered hawk which eventually moved in a westerly 
direction and stopped before I could get visual confirmation. The call was 
quite steady and consistent, making me think it wasn't from one of the blue 
jays hanging around.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca Osprey

2021-03-27 Thread Suan Yong
At around 11am there was an Osprey, possibly the same, sitting on a tree at 
jetty woods along the inlet, across from the Treman marina mouth. I was alerted 
to its presence by its call, which was clearly prompted by my approach along 
the trail right below it, as I looked up to see it staring down at me swinging 
its head side to side in mild annoyance. It didn't take off. Earlier I met 
Sandy at Renwick woods who said she'd seen one also.

Also earlier at Renwick woods I heard a winter wren's song, not far south of 
the northeast entrance to the woods. The first few bouts of the song were 
unusual in that they were short, lasting only about a second, in contrast to 
their normal strung out phrases lasting up to five seconds or more. I wondered 
whether it could've been a starling mimic. Interestingly, those songs seem to 
have prompted a response from a nearby Carolina wren who started belting out 
its song rather insistently, it seemed to me, as if to remind the winter wren 
of its place in the pecking order. Later when I was along fall creek I heard 
a/the winter wren song again, more distantly and from approximately the same 
direction, and I want to say longer this time.

On a short morning walk along six mile creek upstream from second dam I heard a

[cayugabirds-l] Rough legged hawk @ east hill

2021-03-07 Thread Suan Yong
This morning at 9am there was a rough legged hawk hovering and hunting near the 
corner of Ellis Hollow and Game Farm roads. It was accompanied by a second 
buteo, presumably a redtail. I stopped briefly to snap some photos en route to 
an appointment.

At 10:30 on the way back from the appointment only a redtail (or possibly two, 
one adult and one juv) was there.

This is the first rough leg I've seen in several years.

[cayugabirds-l] Chickadee flock?

2021-02-20 Thread Suan Yong
While cross-country skiing through Hammond Hill, I saw a flock of about 50 
small birds moving through some evergreens, in fairly tight quarters, in waves 
of 5-10 at a time. The only sounds I could hear and identify were chickadee 
chips and calls. I'm used to only encountering chickadees in small flocks of 
maybe 5-10, and this big flock seems unusual. They were too far to ID without 
binoculars. Conceivably they were redpolls or something else, but I heard 
nothing to suggest anything besides chickadees.

The salt point flock continues to produce neat birds, including blue-headed

[cayugabirds-l] Grouse, Siskin @ L-P

2020-10-25 Thread Suan Yong
Took a walk around Lindsay Parsons, still plenty of fall colors. Just to the 
east of the railway tracks, from the bench at the northernmost point along the 
orange trail, a Ruffed Grouse could be heard drumming. One was drumming there 
when I visited in the spring also. Later along the red trail in the fields, as 
goldfinches flushed from the brush up to the trees, one of them made a 
different squeaky call as it flew by, and a brief glimpse of its streaky body 
before it took off suggested a Pine Siskin.
Two bluebirds and several white-throated sparrows highlighted the usual 
suspects of chickadees, titmice, downy, nuthatches, blue jays and American 
crows. Some of the nuthatches sounded like red-breasted, but I never got good 
looks.

[cayugabirds-l] Phalarope off Stewart Park

2020-09-14 Thread Suan Yong
I was windsurfing between east shore park and the piling cluster. Somewhere 
near the middle of the lake, just south of the piling cluster, I was surprised 
to see a little shorebird flying away from me. "What are you doing out here, 
peep?" I thought, and then saw the bird land just a few feet away. Phalarope! I 
thought, and sure enough I could see it floating on the water nodding back and 
forth like a wind up toy. I was moving pretty slowly on that reach. On the next 
reach we were planing fast and I was glad to find the bird again at nearly the 
same spot, but this time I think my fast approach may have scared it farther 
away, as I did not see it since.

If the bird were at the same spot it would be scopable from the west side of 
Stewart Park looming due north.

Yesterday evening around 7, while biking up Buffalo St, I heard some strange 
vocalizations that eventually included some more familiar merlin calls as one

did not see the noisemakers, but the unusualness could be a fledgling call of 
some sort?

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin "Bittern"

2020-06-06 Thread Suan Yong
When I arrived at Shindagin Hollow's little wetland area, a largish brown heron 
flushed up to a tree. My first thought was "Bittern in a tree would make for an 
interesting photo". My first thought should've been "that's strange", as after 
slowly approaching the tree and scanning through the foliage I eventually spied 
some big red-ringed eyes: a juvenile black-crowned night heron!

Earlier in the woods I got some video of singing Canada and Mourning warblers - 
will share eventually when I get around to it (video is so much more time 
consuming to process than stills). Also heard but did not see black-billed 
cuckoo and hooded warbler, and got a quick glance of a parting red-shouldered 
hawk ID'ed from its call, no doubt the bird that triggered the continuing 
chorus of chipmunk "clucks" ("munking" as I like to call it) the whole time I 
was there.

[cayugabirds-l] FOY4me Sparrows

2020-04-07 Thread Suan Yong
Savannah Sparrow at Long Point (plus meadowlark), Field Sparrow at Aurora 
Bluffs, Swamp Sparrows along Wildlife Drive (westbound leg mainly).

Shovelers and Green-Winged Teals are the main birds at MNWR. Several shovelers 
were happily foraging close to the wildlife drive while Meena and I looked on, 
occasionally nod-grunting when pairs got close (a social distancing strategy I 
may or may not try to adopt at Wegmans :-), then suddenly the lot collectively 
swam away in minor alert. Looking in my rear view mirror I saw someone birding 
from their moonroof, which I assume was the cause of the minor alarm. Not 
blaming or anything (some of you will have seen me adopt the same moonroof 
strategy when photographing snowy and short-eared owls), just making an 
observation that the line between comfortable and caution for the birds can be 
subtle.

[cayugabirds-l] Cape May? @ Salt Point

2019-11-09 Thread Suan Yong
Just had a brief look at a warbler at Salt Point that suggested Cape May 
Warbler, but flew off before it could be more definitively ID’ed, towards the 
middle where I’ve thus far been unsuccessful at relocating. Impression was too 
much yellow on the breast to be myrtle (though lighting was bad) and fine 
breast streaks suggested CMWA.

[cayugabirds-l] Merlins @ GIAC

2019-05-16 Thread Suan Yong
I’m right now listening to and watching two Merlins calling to each other from 
deciduous trees in the block north of GIAC (Albany and Court) around the 
swimming pool and field. Saw them copulating I think (no binoculars). Not sure 
where the nest might be. There might actually be three Merlins calling / 
competing for attention? The area grackles keep chasing, and being chased by, 
them.

Brief stop at Hawthorn this morning found the trees hopping with Wilson, blue

[cayugabirds-l] SSW Fox Sparrow etc

2018-11-24 Thread Suan Yong
A beautiful fox sparrow is hanging around at the Sapsucker Woods feeder area 
with the juncos and white-throated sparrows and American tree sparrows. A 
cooper flushed the lot so they’re in hiding right now, but are probably still 
around.

Not wanting to be too cavalier about broadcasting owl sightings, but not 
wanting to keep things secret either, I figure I’d “bury the lead” here to 
anyone reading this far ahead to say a barred owl is sitting very close to the 
wilson trail, just south of Podell boardwalk, on the hemlock tree just to the 
left.

[cayugabirds-l] Field Trip This Sunday: Connecticut Hill

2018-06-07 Thread Suan Yong
Hi all,

Dave Gislason and I will be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip this Sunday 
to Connecticut Hill. Meet to carpool at 7:30 in the Wegmans parking lot (SW 
corner, away from the store, next to the water channel), or meet at the 
intersection of Boylan and Connecticut Hill and Lloyd Starks Roads 
(https://goo.gl/maps/NMi39fmBTA72) around 7:50am.

The nesting warblers and flycatchers and vireos should be well established by 
now. The weather should be clear and pleasant, starting off a bit chilly but 
quickly warming up, so dress in layers. We plan to end around noon.

All are welcome, CBC members and the public alike.

FMI, email or call me at (607) 351-9334.

[cayugabirds-l] OOB Lawrence’s Warbler @ Logan Hill

2018-05-13 Thread Suan Yong
Went to FLLT’s Logan Hill Preserve in Candor this morning, in the first field 
at the top where the road turns a corner, I heard a blue-winged warbler which I 
got visuals on, and saw a nice black throat and eye triangle on an otherwise 
yellow bird: a Lawrence’s Warbler (Blue-Winged x Golden-Winged hybrid). This 
was around 9:45.

On my way back to the car at 12:00, I did not hear it there, though I did hear 
at least one other blue-winged song farther up the road that I didn’t chase.

[cayugabirds-l] Fweep!

2018-05-04 Thread Suan Yong
Went searching for whippoorwill at Hawthorn this morning with my thermal 
camera: no luck. The muddy heart of the orchard was quiet, though I did see a 
Hermit Thrush. The northern slope and ravine area had more activity, with a 
dozen or more White-Throated Sparrows foraging and singing. In the midst of the 
local voices was the persistent fweep from a FOY Great Crested Flycatcher. Only 
warbler I heard was Yellow-Rumped Warbler, though there were brief spurts of an 
unfamiliar song I didn’t track down.

There's a red headed woodpecker at Palmer Woods, north side, 42.461656 N 
76.481159 W, first seen attacking a pileated woodpecker who held fast for a bit 
before fleeing. It's been foraging and stashing food in a white oak, and making 
occasional forays to shoo off interloping blue jays. It appears to be 
establishing a wintering territory.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Painted ladies

2017-09-24 Thread Suan Yong
Big Painted Lady irruption this year, was detected early elsewhere, and now 
coming through our neck of the woods. The species has an almost worldwide 
distribution, and is famous for their migrations, but they're irruptive and 
irregular (another way of saying we don't fully understand when and why it 
happens, I think).

Haven't noticed any American Painted Ladies among this lot; they're harder to 
tell apart from above, easier from below (four small eyes instead of two big 
eyes). I'm using this opportunity to get familiar with the few upperside 
patterns that distinguish them from American.

[cayugabirds-l] MNWR least bittern show

2017-07-22 Thread Suan Yong
Arrived around 10am at Larue's lagoon to enjoy the least bittern show (second 
pool to the right), with first one then two birds hunting out in the open 
(albeit tending towards the far side of the pool) and at least two more calling 
from shuffling patches of cattails, every now and then one flying across the 
drive towards the main pool, and coming back. The ability to get out of the car 
made it much easier to notice these flights and hear the calls. At one point 
one of the birds was about 50 feet away, as close as one had been in the open 
all morning, and as three of us approached for a closer look it took off 
directly toward us, flew by about 5 feet in front of us, across the drive 
towards the main pool. I've only seen such close flybys either when being 
shooed off by a nest defender, or in places like the Galapagos where the birds 
have no fear of humans. (Of course, who's to say it isn't the cars-only policy 
that got these guys to not fear us?)

It was so much fun being able to stroll along the drive that I took four hours 
to reach the bend, trying to photograph the ubiquitously chattering but 
secretive marsh wrens, watching an adult bald eagle bring a fish from the main 
pool, waiting for kingbirds and sparrows to pose in the beautiful yellow 
blooms... With sightings of GBHs, green herons, great egrets, a close flyby 
juvenile black-crowned night-heron, and a flyover American Bittern, I ended up 
with a "local breeding" heron sweep.

White pelican was just chillin' at Bennings when I finally drove by after 2pm.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Two questions

2017-07-12 Thread Suan Yong
Spotted sandpiper is more commonly encountered along riverbanks and especially 
lakeshores around here, but I've certainly come across a few solitary 
sandpipers as well, especially in the Cayuga Inlet. Spotted is horizontal and 
"flatter", solitary is taller with long legs and neck, and will "stand tall" 
vertically when checking you out.

As for Osprey, I was surprised to find that the nest at the Cass Park baseball 
fields is hosting three sizeable nestlings that look ready to fledge soon. 
Watched a parent yesterday bring back a nice catfish (harassed by a 
neighborhood kingbird along the way) to feed them.

I've been thinking about hanging out there in the evenings and perhaps share 
the scope with baseball players and parents and anyone else that may come by. 
The weather hasn't cooperated with this plan, however.

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Lindsay-Parsons mystery song

2017-06-06 Thread Suan Yong
So, to my mystery song query below, some have suggested white-throated sparrow 
or yellow-throated warbler (out of range here, and thus unfamiliar to many 
here), but most had the same conclusion I had, which is a prairie warbler, in 
particular this fellow:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10213538520915367=a.1266597703029.2042135.1172377296=3

Rather strange to be lacking the buzzy quality of the typical prairie warbler, 
almost reminiscent of golden-crowned kinglet.

Suan

PS. Here's my transcription of the entire clip:

Witchety witchety witchety (common yellowthroat)
Sweet sweet sweeter than sweet (yellow warbler)
Meow (sapsucker or catbird?)
Look at me... way up here... (red-eyed vireo)
[Strange prairie warbler solo]
Sweet sweet sweeter than sweet (yellow warbler)
Drink your tea (eastern towhee)
Witchety witchety witchety (common yellowthroat)

Background: american crow (and maybe a song sparrow buried in the middle).

[cayugabirds-l] Connecticut Hill

2017-06-04 Thread Suan Yong
In spite of rain and thunder in the forecast, six people joined Dave Gislason 
and I on the CBC field trip to Connecticut Hill. While looking for a singing 
chestnut-sided warbler with my thermal infrared camera, I found instead a 
ruby-throated hummingbird sitting in its tiny lichen-lined nest high in a tree:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/cayugabirdclub/permalink/1346545885383223/

We also got good close looks at some of the many alder flycatchers singing in 
the area, apparently involved in turf battles and thus less concerned about our 
presence. In the woods a "yurr"-ing veery gave fleeting looks in the bush, 
alongside what I thought was a cowbird fledgling, except it wasn't trilling 
incessantly like they seem to usually do. At least two ovenbirds then seemed to 
surround our vantage, singing here then disappearing, popping up there then 
flying off before I can scope it, but returning fairly close to give good but 
fleeting looks. I wondered if we weren't too close to their nest for their 
comfort. Not far up the trail my thermal camera found the day's second nest, a 
red-eyed vireo about 10-feet from the ground, a boldly-eyestriped face looking 
down with its red eye discernible in the scope.

Continuing across the pond as the drizzle increased, we settled under some pine 
trees from where a trilling voice gave Diane a fleeting look at a pine warbler, 
but the bird just flew higher and was not to be seen or heard again. Meanwhile, 
sitting quietly out in the rain was a chestnut-sided warbler giving great scope 
views, though we wondered why it wasn't taking cover from the cold rain.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/cayugabirdclub/permalink/1346545875383224/

Meanwhile up in a low tree were at least nine cedar waxwings resting, then 
foraging in some berry bushes. A brilliant rose-breasted grosbeak flew in close 
at eye level for great looks before leaving with a female.

In our last leg through the woods we found a small cup nest on the ground, and 
not long after my thermal camera found a second red-eyed vireo nest:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/cayugabirdclub/permalink/1346545882049890/

We ended up with a pretty awesome outing, in spite of the weather; rather, this 
reaffirms my experience that birding trips in the rain - as long as it isn't 
windy - always seem to turn out great, with the birds seeming to get closer 
than usual. Our big visual miss for the day was the hooded warbler singing two 
different songs from up high as we traversed its territory next to the parking 
lot.

Thanks again to all who participated.

Suan

[cayugabirds-l] Field Trip Tomorrow: Connecticut Hill

2017-06-03 Thread Suan Yong
Hi all,

I'll be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip tomorrow (Sunday, June 4) to 
Connecticut Hill. We'll meet 7:30am at the Wegmans parking lot (Southwest 
corner, by the little creek, away from the store), and proceed to the 
intersection of Connecticut Hill Rd., Boylan Rd., and Lloyd Starks Rd., 
arriving around 8am.

The original plan was to bird til noon, but since there is rain in the forecast 
(starting mid-morning), the trip may be abbreviated. I plan to be there rain or 
shine, and will go as long as participants want. Dress for rain. Roads could be 
muddy at spots, but we'll avoid driving through anything messy (e.g., we may 
not drive anywhere beyond the rendezvous junction).

Trip is open to all, members and non-members alike.

Email me if you have any questions.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Pine Warbler

2017-05-21 Thread Suan Yong
Yesterday our SFO group had a pine warbler at Greensprings Cemetery (in 
Newfield) singing from one of the scattered smallish pines (~20 feet tall) in 
the mostly open fields. Great eye-level looks for this species, from a tree 
that looked (to me) too small and isolated to be good habitat. And it was 
fighting with a chipping sparrow for that territory, both in song and in being 
chased. Of course it's unclear whether it'll breed there or is just passing 
through, but it seemed to be at least considering that option.

(And of course, when I first heard its song, my expectation was junco.)

[cayugabirds-l] Winter Wrenwick, Stewart Ave Redtail, etc

2017-04-02 Thread Suan Yong
Hung out for a few midday hours at Stewart Park on this beautiful  sunny day.

In the morning a juvenile bald eagle was perched over the lagoon, giving good 
looks to SFO groups, other birders and photographers, and passers-by alike. 
Meanwhile across the way the osprey continued adding sticks to its nest. 
Yesterday our SFO group saw a Canada goose on the next platform briefly before 
the osprey shooed it off and buzzed it a couple times in the water.

In the lagoon was a pair of relaxed Hooded Mergansers while a third flashy male 
would come in frequently looking for trouble, with the first pair's male 
telling it to leave - via chasing but not hood-flashing. Soon I spotted a 
female fly out of the nest box just northeast of the first suspension bridge, 
and before long the flashy male came in to make unwanted advances at that 
female, with multiple unsuccessful long chases. Later a presumably different 
male came in and hung out more amiably with that female, and this pair also 
hung out rather amiably with the first couple. So, it looks like one female is 
occupying that nest box (something to keep an eye on), and I'm 
wondering/conjecturing whether the other couple have agreed to some sort of 
nest-sharing agreement.

I walked up Renwick Woods along fall creek and sat at the lagoon opposite the 
fire training structures, and heard exactly one bout of a winter wren's 
intricate song. When I walked back, I heard some nasal chip calls (reminiscent 
of red-bellied woodpecker) accompanying some mouse-like scurrying around a 
woodpile, but could never get a binocular view of the bird to confirm that it 
was the winter wren.

Earlier in the day I'd stopped by the Stewart Avenue bridge over Fall Creek to 
see a red-tailed hawk sitting in the nest, presumably incubating.

[cayugabirds-l] Field Trip this Sunday

2017-02-24 Thread Suan Yong
This Sunday I'll be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip up the lake. We'll 
meet 8am in the Lab of O parking lot, and plan to return by 4 or 5. Don't be 
fooled by this week's 60's temps: winter will be returning Sunday (30's and 
moderately windy), so dress warm. We'll make pit stops along the way for food 
and warmth.

As of now, the plan is to see if any of the snowy owls are still around 
(starting with the one on Indian Field Road), and see if the snow geese are 
gathering at the mucklands. We may also look for the gyrfalcon, depending on 
interest and time.

Earlier, at Park Preserve South there was a chickadee with an entirely white

[cayugabirds-l] Ringwood warblers, red-shouldered hawk, barred owl

2016-10-02 Thread Suan Yong
Took a walk through Ringwood preserve this morning. Lots of chipmunks about. 
Eventually I found a small mixed flock including two LBJs which I think are 
Bay-breasted warblers (faint streaks around neck area, legs not yellow, 
small-head/short-tail look), then a beautiful hooded warbler who soon started 
singing abbreviated songs, and a black-throated blue warbler (male breeding 
plumage) coming in close to check me out as they seem to like to do.

As I walked I would frequently hear choruses of clucking chipmunks (their 
aerial predator warning) with some blue jay complaints from high in the canopy, 
but never could I find the threat even with my infrared camera. When I reached 
the gully at the west, I finally heard the call of a red-shouldered hawk, and 
later saw a probable one flying low across the forest, long-tailed and 
Cooper-like in shape. Not long after another big bird took off from a low 
branch, though I failed to catch any detail. There was a variety of funny 
wailing vocalizations happening, some possibly squirrel, some possibly blue jay 
as they ended in piping notes. And then I heard a very strange long howl like a 
human's falsetto that ended in the "yurr" of a barred owl's call. It was either 
a barred owl or someone messing with me. I was reminded of last year's muckrace 
when the barred owl on Van Dyne Spoor would make all kinds of sounds that had 
almost human-like qualities.

They've posted warnings about bow hunting season being in progress.

[cayugabirds-l] Brown Booby Photos (SFW)

2016-09-18 Thread Suan Yong
Around 11 this morning I arrived at Harris Park in Cayuga to find Chris T-H and 
company with scopes aimed at buoy 49 about two miles away showing two bumps 
perched at its base: the bigger a Great Black-Backed Gull, the smaller the 
Brown Booby, I was told. Cool, I shrugged with a mix of awe and incredulity, as 
I proceeded to pump up my inflatable "kayak" and started paddling into the 
wind, light but enough to make the journey choppy. In about an hour I arrived 
near the bouy and began snapping away at the brown booby resting next to the 
great black-backed gull. The potential mistake I made here was sitting in the 
navigational channel, which caused an oncoming motorboat to steer away from me 
and thus very close to that buoy, trailing a wake that swayed the bouy so much 
that the booby had to raise its wings to maintain balance, but the two birds 
remained unfazed. Perhaps the big swell reminded the booby of home.

Anyhow, I positioned myself to drift downwind slowly to about 20-30 yards from 
the bouy and snapped away, the birds still relaxed and unalarmed, though 
certainly keeping their eyes on me. Soon I was downwind of then with a million 
photos (actually, "only" 680), and I paddled back towards Harris Park. I soon 
found myself very seasick from staring through the camera on the choppy waters, 
so I just lay down on my boat and took a nap in the pleasant afternoon sun and 
breeze, drifting ever so slowly back to Harris Park. At one point the loud 
rumble and horn signaled the passage of a train - this I think was the cause of 
the bird flushing (I was too seasick to scan with binoculars from the rocky 
boat; I also didn't think that it might flush, though in retrospect I now 
remember trains being a bird flusher on at least two other occasions).

I posted a few photos on Facebook:

[cayugabirds-l] MNWR AMBI LEBI SORA

2016-08-28 Thread Suan Yong
Having not come up to Montezuma for way too long, I dragged myself out of bed 
to get here early. In the first marshy channel to the left along the drive, I 
soon found with the help of my infrared camera a sora foraging just in the 
shadows of the reeds, never really coming out in the open until eventually it 
ran across the channel to the same side as the road but no longer visible. As I 
panned my infrared camera around I saw a shape at mid-level of the cattails 
which turned out to be a least bittern, who walked briefly across the reeds 
about three feet off the surface before flying across and into some deeper 
reeds. At Eaton Marsh there was an American Bittern foraging perhaps 30 feet 
away. When I pulled over to photograph it, it froze, pointed up, swayed like 
the wind, then decided the jig was up and walked away into invisibility.

There were yellowlegs and at least one peep-ish shorebird at Seneca Flats, but 
lacking patience with the backlighting and inability to scope from the car, I 
didn't spend much time there.

Lots of young gallinule and coots and pb grebes.

[cayugabirds-l] Banded Canada Geese

2016-08-07 Thread Suan Yong
FYI, Canada geese with yellow neck bands NY06, NY12, and NY17 are currently 
loafing in a flock of ~30 CANGs in Salmon Creek between Myers and Salt Point. 
Not sure who's keeping track and what's the best avenue for reporting these; I 
know there's some local interest, presumably even in tracking "boring" baseline 
reports, but I'm guessing we don't want this list to turn into a flood of daily 
"it's still there" reports (which are still valuable scientifically).

[cayugabirds-l] Lansing Ctr Orchard Oriole, Bobolink

2016-07-24 Thread Suan Yong
Sorry for the empty earlier message (blame the iPhone :-).

Yesterday evening I spent some time at Salt Point watching the ospreys, of 
which one of the young was enjoying flying in the NW breeze. En route I saw a 
male orchard oriole with food in its mouth, and later was able to see at least 
three f/j-types, one looked like the mother who knew what she was doing, the 
other two popping up whenever she seemed like she'd found something. This was 
my first real opportunity to get familiar with this challenging-to-ID species.

Late this morning I went to Lansing Center Trail, and along with the expected 
field sparrows and indigo buntings and such, I was surprised to see at least 
two, probably more, f/j-type orchard orioles in an apple tree. Still not 100% 
confident of my ID, I was glad to soon see a chestnut-colored male fly by into 
a nearby bush. Also, some bobolinks could be heard from the fields, and soon a 
male (possibly along with a female) was flushed.

[cayugabirds-l] BB Whistling Duck photos

2016-07-10 Thread Suan Yong
Here are a few nice shots of the ducks at Treman Marina this evening:

https://www.facebook.com/suan.yong/posts/10210160767713648

They were relaxed and at ease and many people got to see them. Around 7:30 a 
dog walker approached the area and flushed the surrounding gulls, but the ducks 
remained, though now isolated and less at ease. They remained til shortly after 
8 when they took off, flew up the inlet, and landed on the red lighthouse 
jetty, not easily visible from our position at Treman Marina. They evidently 
did not stay there long, as not long after they were no longer being seen.

[cayugabirds-l] Merlin(s) @ Cayuga Heights

2016-06-14 Thread Suan Yong
At 7:30 this evening as we were about to enter the First Congregational Church 
on Highland Avenue in Cayuga Heights, we heard a Merlin calling from a pine 
tree up the hill SE of the church. Soon we saw a Merlin circle around in a 
display flight. I couldn't be sure, but it felt like the vocalizing bird was 
different from the flying one, suggesting a pair, perhaps. Seems possible that 
a nest is nearby, but without binoculars and being late for the rehearsal, I 
didn't see anything more.

[cayugabirds-l] Connecticut Hill

2016-06-04 Thread Suan Yong
Had a nice CBC field trip this morning, starting with a willow flycatcher at 
the Wegmans parking lot. With Dave Gislason leading us through a variety of 
interesting trails at Connecticut Hill, the seven of us ended up with a good 
variety of species, though most were visually rather uncooperative. Highlights 
included hooded warbler (singing but seen briefly only by me), alder and least 
flycatchers, pine warbler, indigo bunting, eastern towhee, a female 
chestnut-sided warbler coming in really close to make sure we didn't disturb 
its little nest with four tiny chestnut-sided eggs:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/cayugabirdclub/permalink/1024400910931057/

Also a fly-by broad-winged hawk, singing red-breasted nuthatch and Blackburnian 
warbler, calling hermit thrush, interesting plumage on fledgling juncos, and 
some bobolinks to end the morning.

After the field trip, I drove west towards Cayuta Lake, and on the way down the 
hill I heard this song:

http://suan-yong.com/sound/Ct-hill-4-2016-06-04.wav

I was pretty excited, thinking I might have found a new breeding cerulean. The 
bird remained high but moved around quite a bit (well, the song did, as I never 
saw any movement), and eventually came down low to check me out, revealing 
itself to be "just" a black-throated blue warbler.

[cayugabirds-l] CBC Field Trip tomorrow to Connecticut Hill

2016-06-03 Thread Suan Yong
Hi all,

Tomorrow morning I'll be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip to Connecticut 
Hill. Meet at 7:30 am at the Wegmans parking lot (away from the store, by the 
inlet) or around 7:50 am at the intersection of Connecticut Hill Rd., Boylan 
Rd., and Lloyd Starks Rd. We'll plan to finish around noon.

My friend Dave Gislason, who is very familiar with the area's many trails, will 
help guide us as we explore some of the woodland, pond, and mixed habitats. All 
are welcome, CBC members and nonmembers alike.

[cayugabirds-l] YT Vireo @ Commonland

2016-05-27 Thread Suan Yong
A yellow-throated vireo was singing at Commonland yesterday and this morning, 
from high in the trees behind the small pond. New yard bird for me. Stared at 
those trees for some time this morning but failed to see it. The resident male 
red-winged blackbird was very unhappy with my stroll around the pond, as I 
spied a female leaving a nest with a fecal sac plopped into the pond.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Merlin nests including Wells C.

2016-05-25 Thread Suan Yong
While biking home this evening around 8pm, I heard what I'm pretty sure was a 
Merlin calling from a deciduous tree behind 210 Park Place. Without binoculars 
I never sighted the bird. It was calling very continuously, with a few breaks 
in between and some "chink" calls reminiscent of grosbeak. There are a couple 
of evergreens nearby that could be candidate nest sites.

[cayugabirds-l] East Shore and Second Dam

2016-05-08 Thread Suan Yong
Windsurfing from East Shore at noon today in spite of the cold air and water 
temps, I flushed up a number of adult Bonaparte's Gulls, along with cormorants 
and some unidentified small ducks or grebes. There were also many Chimney 
Swifts flying low over the lake with the swallows, something I'd never seen 
before.

Later in the evening, I took a walk down to the second dam of six-mile creek, 
and was surprised to see in the middle of the reservoir a lone Ring-Necked Duck 
and a Ruddy Duck (plus a beaver slapping its tail with great frequency). On the 
way back a Blackburnian and Chestnut-sided Warbler landed next to each other as 
if buddying up for this layover. They along with a Nashville and Yellow-rump at 
least gave me a taste of today's mini-fallout I thought I'd missed out on.

[cayugabirds-l] Red-shouldered @ Sapsucker Woods

2016-04-10 Thread Suan Yong
During this morning's CBC walk around sapsucker woods, I heard from Podell 
Boardwalk the call of a red-shouldered hawk. Around then, the cacophony of bird 
sounds went silent, as we watched a red-bellied woodpecker freeze itself at a 
spot on a tree trunk. Soon a Cooper-sized raptor came by low and close, 
casually passing within a few feet of the petrified red-belly then on towards 
the pond and out of sight. A sapsucker commenced a loud drumming, and 
thereafter the other birds started up their vocal activity again. The red-belly 
remained frozen in place for some time, even as a second red-belly came by as 
if to say "dude, the coast is clear now".

I did not get binoculars on the raptor, and my experience remains limited, but 
I got the impression of very long tail, suggesting Cooper more than 
red-shouldered. But the call heard earlier was unmistakable (unless there was 
very loud playback nearby).

The walk, attended by only one other, was very eventful. Sapsuckers were 
drumming and showboating. At one point, two males came together to the top of 
the same tree to do that do-se-do thing, then one flew off in the direction of 
the lab building, struck one of the upper windows, and fell to the lower 
roof/deck on the west side of the building. Perhaps someone at the lab could 
check if it's still there (it may be visible from the publicly accessible 
observatory on the second floor).

We saw brown creepers on three occasions - could be the same individual or 
three different ones - and a towhee was calling between the beaver dam and 
Sherwood platform. The feeder area had a pine siskin, heard singing several 
times before finally seen, and an American tree sparrow seen several times and 
then singing its sweet melodious song.

Three ring-necked ducks and a pair of buffleheads continue in the pond, with 
two pairs of wood ducks and about 8 female-type hooded mergansers (some showing 
hints of male plumage).

Good to finally start seeing some gold in them goldfinches.

Best skydance video yet. Watch til the landing, then listen for the soft "gulp" 
before the peents:

There was a second woodcock sitting nearby, which once vocalized a funny

seemed quite emboldened, flying quite close to me a few times.
