[cayugabirds-l] American Tree Sparrows; Peregrine Falcon

2020-11-18 Thread Dave Nutter
Today’s snowy weather brought at least 3 and maybe as many as 5 American Tree 
Sparrows to feed in the weeds surrounding my garden, a first for the season in 
the yard. 

And during my Loon Watch I saw a Peregrine Falcon passing just to my north 
flying east at 0806, maybe going toward Cornell. Later I scoped the west face 
of Bradfield Hall but did not see any bird sitting on the usual perch there. 
However, at 1450 I did notice a Peregrine Falcon perched on the SW edge of the 
top of the old gray smokestack for the abandoned Morse Chain / Emerson Power 
Transmission Factory low on South Hill in Ithaca. It was still there at dusk. 
That’s the second time this autumn that I have seen a Peregrine atop that 
smokestack, so maybe it’s a regular perch to keep an eye on. It’s closer to my 
home than Bradfield, so I find these scoped “yard bird” Peregrine views more 
satisfying.

[cayugabirds-l] American Tree Sparrows in song

2013-03-10 Thread Anne Clark
Having read the guides, males in a flock of American Tree Sparrows at the 
Stevenson Road Compost Facility are singing--- in late winter before the 
spring migration (All About Birds) .  An unfamiliar song for me, but very 
sweet.  The flock was hanging in the low shrubbery at the two-track that goes 
north where the road into the mounds makes an abrupt right/east turn. I have 
encountered a flock of 10+ along the drive several times this winter.

Not a glorious mass of goose and swan, but extremely spring-y!

[cayugabirds-l] American Tree Sparrows on the increase

2011-02-24 Thread Stephanie Greenwood
Just thought it might be worth reporting that today I counted 42 
American Tree Sparrows under and on my feeders, my highest count yet. 
And I still have around 30 Redpolls (including a Hoary or two or three) 
visiting daily, as well as the other usual feeder birds.
