RE:[cayugabirds-l] Merlin

2021-03-23 Thread smb4inc
The local northeast area of Ithaca Merlin returned last week.  I saw the Merlin 
while looking for the crows.  Initially heard then seen chasing whomever 
possible near St. Catherine's Church on Siena X Blackstone.  The Merlin has 
been flying around the neighborhood since then.
This morning the Merlin was perched in a tree in my yard and was quite vocal.

[cayugabirds-l] Merlin Family

2014-07-24 Thread smb4inc
Last evening we watched a family of Merlins in the northeast area of Ithaca.  
We first saw them preening in the trees on Hanshaw near Orchard after the 
thunder storm had passed.  They flew to the trees near St. Catherine's Church 
where they swooped down on a family of foraging crows, and chased 2 crows in 
and out of the trees.  They shifted to the trees on St. Catherine's Place where 
they chased a family of Blue Jays.  It also looked as though the juveniles were 
playing some talon tag between chasing the Blue Jays.  On our way home, we 
heard the Merlin calls and found them chasing a Killdeer family in the trees 
between Simsbury and Winthrop.

[cayugabirds-l] Bomax Drive

2014-05-06 Thread smb4inc
Hi All,


Last evening we checked out the pond on Bomax Drive.  There were Yellow-rumped 
Warblers and Yellow Warblers in a feeding frenzy over the pond.  Also present 
were Black and White Warblers, a single Palm Warbler, Eastern Phoebe, a Belted 
Kingfisher, and a Pileated Woodpecker.  The resident Red-tailed Hawk flew 
through the trees causing a commotion with the nearby nesting American Crow 
family while we watched the feeding Warblers.


At home we had a Brown Thrasher, Baltimore Oriole, White-throated and 
White-crowned Sparrows amid the usuals.  We still have one female Red-winged 
Blackbird at the feeders, last week there were several.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler Wilson's Phalarope MNWR

Around noon we saw the Prothonotary Warbler carrying material into the same

There is a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER singing along Armitage Road in the normal spot 
this morning. 

Along the auto loop I had the previously reported female WILSON'S PHALAROPE at 
Benning Marsh and another bird at the very north end of the main pool. This 
bird 
was distant and in the morning fog combined with a little distortion I struggle 
a bit with the ID but I believe it was a male WILSON'S PHALAROPE.

[cayugabirds-l] Mudlock Bald Eagles

2012-10-21 Thread smb4inc
Yesterday afternoon we birded the upper end of the lake and around Montezuma.  
On our way home we checked the Mudlock Bald Eagles and saw an adult and a 
juvenile sitting in a tree at the point.  After a bit the adult took off and 
gathered nesting materials which it carried to a tree just north of the point.  
We then noticed that a second adult was sitting in what looked to be the 
beginnings of a nest.  


Is this a new pair or have the Mudlock pair moved to a tree to nest?
