[cayugabirds-l] Song Sparrow

2019-12-02 Thread Regi Teasley
We had a Song Sparrow under our bird feeders today and our 2-3 White Throated 
Sparrows remain.   There are also dozens of Goldfinches, House Finches, our 
resident Juncos, a few Chicadees and a couple of Mourning Doves.
 A pair of Carolina Wrens enjoyed the suet and the lovely Cardinals ate the 
sunflower seeds.   I saw a Cardinal sampling the frozen berries on the 
Hackberry. Not much activity from Blue Jays or Woodpeckers yet.

 Yesterday while looking about for snowy owls in Varick (none seen) on my 
 return home I saw a male RINGNECKED PHEASANT on Center Road in Ovid between 
 Rock River and CR 129. He was walking somewhat cautiously across a flat field

[cayugabirds-l] Song Sparrow

2015-01-19 Thread John and Fritzie Blizzard

Union Springs: 19 Jan. 2015.

Confirmed this a.m. that the bird I saw yesterday afternoon in dim light 
under one of our cedar trees was indeed a SONG SPARROW, my FOY.
As I was watching the song sparrow a Cooper's hawk came sweeping by on 
its way to the stand of spruces where the the little birds hide out. It 
has been patrolling quite regularly.


Deer came again about 1 a.m. to raid a feeder that is no longer where 
they can bump it to get sunflower seeds. At least one skunk comes to get 
seed droppings. If deer, squirrels, possums, racoons, rabbits, chucks  
rodents were as useful as skunks, I wouldn't resent their presence. As 
it is, they aren't welcome!!!


35 deg.  very windy.

My Song Sparrow also arrived today morning and he was singing his heart out. I 
know it is the same guy because his song seems to be the same. I recorded him 
among the traffic noise. But will confirm it later with the songs of the 
previous years that I have recorded.

As expected, the Lab feeding garden is full of Red-winged Blackbirds today.  
There are also lots of sparrows, mostly American Tree, but also including at 
least 2 White-throated Sparrows and a SONG SPARROW.

Also Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls continue.

Me too, my first was on Sunday, slicing through the wind and snow squalls.
I always think it's so stimulating in the spring, first you're thinking,
wait, what is that sound again.  and then the comfortable and exciting
recognition right after your brain finds the right file.

[cayugabirds-l] Song Sparrow

2011-04-21 Thread Greg Ward
Hi,

I joined the list 2 years ago when my daughter began collage at IC. It is
great to compare what is happening in the Cayuga basin with western Mass. 

I have a question that I was hoping someone might be able to answer. The
other day a friend of mine brought me a Song Sparrow that there cat had
killed and covering its feet are light brown warty or fleshy growths.
Essentially creating a club like foot.  I included a photo however the
quality is not very good. Any ideas? 

Thanks,

Thank you Wesley, Greg and Pete for responding so quickly. Wesleys email
response I believe did not get on to the list serve so I copyed it below. 

Greg Ward 

 

Hi Greg,

 

   I'm replying from my web mail, so for some reason I can't reply to the
entire list.  However, that Song Sparrow had an infection of avian pox (a
virus that causes growths like that on the hard parts of birds.  I did my
PhD research on Song Sparrows (near Vancouver Island), and our study
population always had a small number of diseased birds...some of which lived
for multiple years with these sorts of growths.  My (imperfect)
understanding of avian pox is that birds will die not from the infection per
se, but instead if the disease gets to the point of debilitating the a bird
(either growths at the beak that prevent feeding, or severe growths on its
legs that prevent their use).

Greg,

I'm not certain what it is, but there's a chance that someone
over in CUMV (Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates) might know, or,
failing that, the Vet college ( http://vet.cornell.edu ). I'm also including
on this e-mail Charlie Dardia, who is the collections manager for CUMV, and
who would be able to tell you what to do with the bird if there's any
interest in it either at CUMV or the Vet college.

[cayugabirds-l] song sparrow

2011-02-10 Thread Susan Fast
On a morning walk, I heard my first SONG SPARROW singing, along Burns Rd.
The tone was brave, but a little doubtful.

[cayugabirds-l] Song Sparrow and Redpolls

2011-02-06 Thread Annette Nadeau
I've had a SONG SPARROW coming to my feeder here on Boiceville Road 
(Brooktondale) for the past week.

I also had one REDPOLL coming to the feeder until I put my thistle feeder back 
out yesterday. Word spread among the Redpolls and I counted at least 29 in the 
yard today.

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Song sparrow back!

2010-03-25 Thread Meena Haribal
I checked the date when he (SOSP) had returned in 2008 and the date was March 
17. So he is late by a week this year! Wonder what delayed his arrival.  I 
think last year (2009) it was something like April 2 but will check it out.
