[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma Glossy Ibis leaving?

2021-10-17 Thread metetlow
Around 1:45 today we watched the Glossy Ibis fly higher and higher off to the 
Southwest over the main pool until out of sight. Did it return or did the 
signal to go south kick in? Mike Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Snow Goose estimate methodology.

2021-03-18 Thread metetlow
Here is my ebird checklist from yesterday to give people an idea how I came up 
with 400k:
Lower Lake Rd., S of Cayuga Lake SP
Mar 17, 2021
1:42 PM
Traveling
1.60 miles
130 Minutes
All birds reported? No
Comments: Submitted from eBird for iOS, version 2.4.1 Build 2.4.35

40 Snow Goose -- Estimated two ways. First, I used my odometer to determine 
the length of the flock along the road as 1.6 miles. Then I randomly counted 
one row of geese straight out which averaged 100.  Figuring one row every 2 
feet comes out to 422,400.  Second, I used Google Earth to draw a closed area 
on the map that the flock occupied. This came out to 444,519 square meters. 
Using one bird per square meter to arrive at 444,519. Those densities may be 
high so I rounded down to 400,000. That being said there was another quite 
large raft in the middle of the lake that I did not work on.

Number of Taxa: 1

Non- birders have asked me about this and whether the bird could just be half

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma crane breeding success?

2020-12-05 Thread metetlow
The numbers of Sandhill Cranes are now about double any previous year by my 
marginal memory’s recollection.  The highest I remember 2 years ago was around 
127 (but eBird search experts can correct me). If y happy just enjoying the 
beautiful flock stop reading.! Based on this year’s nesting stories that I 
either saw, heard or read about the refuge didn’t contribute much. First, I 
read of a pair that had 2 young near the main pool observation tower. That went 
down to one young then I heard none. The DEC staff told me that a pair at 
Morgan road had one bird disappear long enough to hopefully incubate but 
rejoined the other with no young in tow. The Carncross Road pair appeared 
together often but no baby. Joann and I found one on a nest at the Sandhill 
Crane unit. They hatched one young but that bird disappeared a short week 
later. Finally a pair at Knox showed up with a fledgling and as far a I know 
that was the only refuge success. I hope others have better stories as I heard 
talk of pairs on Howland Island and at the MAC. The first post nesting 
gathering at Knox that I saw were consistent with this as I remember a dozen 
with 1 juvenile. Then they came from everywhere apparently. Yay!
   This number also starts concerns with me about potential future hunting. I 
don’t know where our birds winter but know that the eastern population can be 
hunted in Tennessee, Kentucky and starting last year Alabama. Its pretty 
unlikely that the hunters here won’t want to shoot the “ribeyes of the sky” so 
start campaigning to have them protected! Mike Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma today.

2020-09-27 Thread metetlow
Joann and I took a ride though Montezuma this afternoon and had a great time.
   The south end of the visitor center was busy. We hadn’t heard of the 
Hudsonian Godwit in a couple days so were very happy to find it along the sw 
edge. There were good numbers of both Yellowlegs and Pectoral Sandpipers along 
that edge but those numbers jumped up when the flock hidden in the channel to 
the south flew up. It included 3 Stilt Sandpipers. They and the Godwit worked 
that way and out of sight. A Black-bellied Plover landed on the sw shore which 
also held 4 Snipe. An American Bittern worked in and out of the reeds there. 
Numbers of Wigeon and Pintail are growing there and on the main pool. 
   The open water in the north end of Larue Lagoon had our days highlight. 
Joann picked out an Otter working the edge there! Our third ever on the refuge. 
It turned sharply and lunged out after a fish and in doing that it chased a 
Least Bittern up from the reeds into plain sight. 
The Sandhill Crane population is starting to grow at Knox-Marcellus and is 
up to 33. It’ll be interesting to see if they continue there with no water.

[cayugabirds-l] Geneva Snow Bunting and no Yellow-Headed Blackbird

2020-02-21 Thread metetlow
This afternoon Joann and I rode from Geneva to Canoga then up 89 to East Road. 
Along the south side of Lerch Road, around 2 pm, just east of Goldsmith Road in 
Geneva we came upon a HUGE flock of Snow Buntings. I had a very large flock 
along Yellow Tavern Road last week NE of there that I carefully estimated at 
2700. Today’s flock was at least double that. I measured the approximate area 
the flock covered on Google Earth and came up with 22,000 square meters. If 
there was one bird per square meter that would be the number. We would put the 
minimum at 5000 but believe it was more than that. They circled high and flew 
to the SW out of sight.
   On to Canoga with no Gyrfalcon.
 Up to 89 and East Road. A couple dozen Cowbirds and Red-wings were in 
treetops at the north end of East around 4 pm but no Yellow-Headed Blackbirds. 
Similar flocks behind houses on Olmstead and Mays Point Roads. A couple dozen 
Pintail have arrived at Cayuga Lake at Lower Lake Road. Mike and Joann Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma shorebirds and babies.

2019-07-07 Thread metetlow


Joann and I drove through Montezuma this afternoon. We knew a few Yellowlegs 
had dropped in Friday but surprised to find 32 Lessers and 1 Greater plus 1 
Least and 1 Spotted Sandpiper in the flooded grasses near the channel halfway 
down the main pool. Then another 27 Lesser and 3 Greater Yellowlegs at Eaton 
marsh. Shorebird Flats had 2 Pied-billed Grebe families. One with 2 young, the 
other with 4. A Common Gallinule family there had 7 young. Up at the west end 
of Benning Marsh there was a Female Gadwall with 8 new babies. At Morgan Road a 
flock of 18 Sandhill Cranes were on the back edge of the cornfield on the right 
just before the first house. 2 more Cranes( no young)were on Carncross. Also 
the first time we’ve heard Cerluean Warbler in the woods just north of 
Carncross. Mike and Joann Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] No Ruff/Reeve. Yes Pelican

2018-04-13 Thread metetlow
This evening we made an attempt at the Port Gibson Ruff and Reeve at Maiden 
Lane and Towpath. We only found 3 Lesser and 4 Greater Yellowlegs and watched 
the Lessers fly off to the NE. On to the main pool at Montezuma, the White 
Pelican was feeding comfortably among the 2000ish Canvasbacks with a few Ruddy 
Ducks mixed in. A basic plumage Dunlin flew in to the visitor center pool  
around 5:00 and the Ross’s Goose continued at the back of Eaton Marsh along the 
wildlife drive. The 5 Great Egrets at Tschache  Pool included a yellow wing 
tagged bird numbered 29x. Mike and Joann Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Mz Sandhills Cranes up to 74

2017-11-16 Thread metetlow
Yesterday at 3 pm. There were 49 on the north side of rte. 89 just east of the 
East Rd. Junction. 16 on Armitage near Olmstead and 9 in Knox-Marcellus. I 
believe the highest report was 82 in December 2014. Will they get to that? I 
hope this population keeps growing but only seeing 2 young birds in these 
groups makes me wonder. Mike Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Montezuma Red-necked Phalarope and more.

2017-09-05 Thread metetlow
This afternoon Dominic Sherony and a I visited the Martens Tract overlook 
for the previously reported Red-necked and Wilson's Phalaropes seen as recently 
as this am. We found the Red-necked but no Wilson's. The water level was up a 
lot from the day before and birds were leaving as we watched. 1 Stilt and 1 
White-rumped Sandpiper were the remaining highlights. A Merlin passing through 
twice didn't help. An American Bittern flushed from the grasses along the dike 
to the east.
 On to the main pool. The visitor center "pond" had been partially plowed 
and is waiting for water. The highlight along the first leg of the wildlife 
drive was the 24(at least) Bald Eagles perched on just about every snag along 
the river. This combined with 15 more at Knox-Marcellus marsh was amazing. We 
did not scan nesting sites and only saw 1 adult so many more out there 
somewhere. The main pool had good numbers of American Wigeon newly added to the 
couple hundred Coot.
Benning Marsh had good habitat with 1 White-rumped and several Stilt 
sandpipers giving close views. Along the thruway a Peregrine Falcon harassed a 
Harrier then failed at a pass at a small flock of Peep overhead. 
The north end of Knox-Marcellus marsh was very birdy! The water was up a 
lot from the weekend and waterfowl numbers were back up to earlier numbers but 
with greater numbers of Am. Wigeon and Northern Pintail joining the increasing 
Teal and Mallard numbers. Lesser Yellowlegs and Pectoral Sandpiper groups 
arrived and left as we watched. We found another Red- necked Phalarope for the 
highlight but lost it in the Eagle caused shuffles. Great habitat so it should 
be a great spot with the upcoming weather changes. Dominic has entered ebird 
checklists. Mike Tetlow

[cayugabirds-l] Seneca Falls Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owls continue

2017-01-18 Thread metetlow
This afternoon after passing the Seneca Stone Quarry, twice scanning the 
complex from Hoster Road between 2:30 and 3:00 with no luck, I returned one 
more time around 3:30 to find Josh Snodgrass and friend with the bird perched 
in the trees over the Quarry. 3 Snowy Owls were still visible from the south 
end of the airport and the "queen" Snowy was atop the grainery at the Lott farm 
on 414. Another Snowy continues in the area of route 96a and Kime Road east of 
Geneva although today it was only visible from Nelson Road looking north. A 
huge flock of Snow Geese were covering a field on the north side of Yellow 
Tavern Road just west of route 96.

[cayugabirds-l] Airport and Lott farm Snowies up to 4.

2017-01-05 Thread metetlow
Yesterday around 330 Dominic Sherony and I had one snow owl at the lot farm 
rotating between the grass as previously described and up on the Porta potty's 
and three more snowy owls at the airport, one prominently on the west side of 
the runway and the other 2 hunkered down behind tiny snowbanks and tiny grass 
mounds also on the west side. Please minimize disturbance because I know 
attempts  are going to be made to band the two that have not been banded.
