[cayugabirds-l] Orchard Orioles at Salt Point Natural Area

2021-05-07 Thread Martha Hoffman
Hello All-

My husband and I went for a morning bird walk at Salt Point where we had 
multiple Orchard Oriole sightings!! 

At one point we saw 4 males and 1 female simultaneously in/near a flowering 
apple tree along the southern leg of the trail. 2 male Baltimores were also in 
the tree at the same time- distinctly different in color.

We’re still novice birders, but are 99% sure in our ID- definitely not robins 
or towhees! :) Would love to get confirmation from more experienced birders if 
anyone else is heading to Salt Point today.

We have a low quality iPhone video of a male where you can hear its calls that 
we’d be happy to share with anyone who is interested. 

Yay! Spring!
- Martha

[cayugabirds-l] Orchard orioles

2020-05-05 Thread Donna Lee Scott
Not one, but two male orchard orioles just came to my jelly and orange feeder 
in back yard!
First ever I have seen Orchard orioles here, not to mention they are my first 
of year for these birds.
This was just after a female and a male Baltimore oriole ate the grape jelly 
and orange.

Besides the beautiful, clear singing of the Baltimore orioles, one of my gray 
cat birds has been singing the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard from that 
species.

Cat birds are not going to the jelly /orange feeders, so I don’t think they are 
the cat birds from last year who couldn’t get enough of those foods. They keep 
eating suet a few inches away from the jelly/ orange hanging dish.

[cayugabirds-l] Orchard Orioles Salt Point

2012-05-12 Thread John Greenly
I watched a pair of ORCHARD ORIOLES foraging this evening at Salt Point.  Saw 
no clue as to nest site.  I watched the female vocalize once- she gave the 
typical whistled note that usually accompanies the chuck calls, and then two 
upslurred notes, something like: se shooee shooee.  The Male was not nearby 
at the time.

[cayugabirds-l] Orchard Orioles

2010-05-20 Thread James G. Kohlenberg
Hi all,
Last Sunday, the 16th, Susan, Ann and I birded up the lake. We 
didn't post, but people may be interested in our  Orchard Oriole sightings.

 On Myers Point Rd. where it crosses the RR tracks the apartment house on the 
right hosted two nesting pairs or Orchard Orioles. One pair in the tree in 
front that I think is a Cottonwood and another in the Spruce tree at the south 
end of the house. They seemed to be actively constructing and the nest in the 
spruce tree is almost impossible to see even when you know where to look.

At Long Point State Park another male Orchard Oriole was observed by the 
restroom building. The large tree at the north end of the building had fishing 
line, with brightly colored float attached, tangled up in the branches. The 
male Oriole had grabbed the free end of the line and flew around the branch 
trying to untangle it. As a fisherman myself I know how hard it can be to 
untangle line so I was quite impressed with his skill in knowing which 
direction to fly. The only reason he failed was because the line must have been 
several tens of feet long. A little too much of a good thing perhaps. The 
colorful float would have been a natty addition to the new house.

Happy birding,

Gary

[cayugabirds-l] Orchard Orioles and Shindagin Hollow

2010-05-08 Thread Anne Marie Johnson
I visited Shindagin Hollow between 9 and 10 this morning. Not wanting 
to get caught in a shower and needing to get myself to an appointment 
on time, I stuck to the road. I didn't expect to find much, but there 
were lots of birds singing.The highlight for me was a CANADA WARBLER 
singing right next to the road on the steep, curving hill down to the 
hollow. I was also thrilled to see an ORCHARD ORIOLE briefly, my 
second for the day! One landed in my yard for about 5 seconds this 
morning when I happened to be outside with binoculars in hand. Both 
were adult males.


This seems to be a Cuckoo week for me. Earlier in the week I saw two 
Yellow-billed Cuckoos at Sapsucker Woods together in one tree. 
Yesterday I saw two Black-billed Cuckoos in my yard chasing each 
other around--perhaps the first time I have actually seen or at least 
gotten a good look at that species. This morning I saw another 
Yellow-billed Cuckoo in the hollow.


Birds singing all along the main road included Common Yellowthroats, 
Yellow Warblers, American Redstarts, and Least Flycatchers. In 
addition I briefly heard one Black-throated Green and one Winter 
Wren, and I saw a Common Raven and a Chestnut-sided Warbler.
