[cayugabirds-l] Carolina wrens and D-E Juncos

2020-07-25 Thread Therese O'Connor
What a flurry of activity in my backyard ( Meadowlark Dr. near Sapsucker
woods) the last week. A pair of juncos are building a nest on my deck and a
pair of Carolina wrens apparently are building one way back in the yard.
Beaks full of grasses, etc. I've never heard so many different songs and
calls from the male wren--perched on my deck railing!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] ebird reporting question re: motion activated photos

2020-05-12 Thread Therese O'Connor
Interesting. Three weeks ago I received a "question" from ebird asking me
if I had "additional information" about a siting I had in Seattle in *2014!*
I wonder what took them so long to question my bird....strange.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Of Unleashed Dogs and Waterthrushes

2020-04-27 Thread Therese O'Connor
Meredith,
Thank you for you dog "notes". I have seen many dogs in Sapsucker woods of
late, where the signs clearly state "no dogs". In this case, even if the
dogs are leashed, they shouldn't be there. The unleashed dog issue has
gotten worse in the past year or so based on my own walking experiences in
Monkey run and other local trails.

For what it's worth, at Mill Pond in Aurora/Union Springs today, we saw,
among the 20 or so Red Head Ducks, about 12 American Wigeons. We asked the
Audubon Center guy, Chris, who said, "yes they are still around much longer
than usual".
There were also Mallards and Hooded Mergansers.

[cayugabirds-l] Northeast feeders Sapsucker woods rd.

2017-04-22 Thread Therese O'Connor
This morning 10 beautiful purple finches were at the feeders--5 males and 5
females. Two males were doing a bit of battle with their beaks. Also around
were 2 red-breasted woodpeckers--1 female and 1 male; several downy and
hairy woodpeckers and small clouds of Am goldfinches. The colors!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] American Coots

This morning a lovely little sharp-shinned hawk swooped upon my feeders
filled with titmice, chickadees, red and white nuthatches, but was
unsuccessful.  He waited on a near-by branch, but no little birds returned
to the feeders for a long while.

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker fight to the finish

2015-05-04 Thread Therese O'Connor
Tonight we witnessed a 3-way Yellow bellied Sapsucker fight which may have
been territorial. Three sapsuckers landed on a telephone pole on Meadowlark
Rd just across the road where we were sitting on the stoop. A great
screeching and squaking fight ensued with three in a fight and two coming
out ok after  a few mintues. Then the 2 remaining fighters flew around and
around in circles at one point battling very close to the ground where my
cat across the road perked up to see what all the screeching ruckus was
about. The birds flew circles over us very close to our heads and all
around the neighbor hood. Eventually, they, or at least one, ended up on a
tree behind our house which is actually part of Sapsucker woods, and it
seems somewhat ruffled. The other bird disappeared. What an interesting
display of birds fighting.

This IS  AMAZING –!!!

Structural engineer in action
Whether you’re a ‘bird person’ or not, this is stunning!!!  (and touching
too).
Not to detract from the sheer magic of it, but in practical terms, how MANY
trips would a bird have to make with that tiny little quantity of mud/clay
it could carry? (and how far from the nest is the source?)

If you take the construction of a “circular bowl” in your stride as
instinctive, how does the bird come up with the windbreak/entrance design
that shields the eggs/chicks from the elements and at what point in
fashioning the bowl do they start to construct it?
