[cayugabirds-l] Brant at Lindsay Parsons/ Lake Coleman

2021-05-16 Thread Kevin C Packard
Hi everyone,

   I found a brant at Lake Coleman in Lindsay-Parsons this morning.  The brant 
was just resting on a log in the middle of the lake and seemed to be in no 
hurry to go anywhere.  Conveniently, it was present for the Cayuga Bird Club 
outing to LPP this morning.  Feel free to check it out if you're in the area.

 Happy birding,

 Kevin

[cayugabirds-l] Brant and Lesser Black-backed Gull

2020-10-12 Thread Jody Enck
Hi All,
This morning I had the pleasure of being invited by friends who work with
Cooperative Extension to join a family educational trip out on Cayuga Lake
on the boat called *The Teal*, otherwise known as the floating classroom.

Most of the cool birds seen were fairly close in near the lighthouse
jetties and the mouth of Fall Creek.  These included a flock of Brant and
at least one Lesser Black-backed Gull with the other gulls on the jetty.

The Brant seem to be sticking around today with the stiff southeast
breeze.  They were there mid-morning when we headed up the lake, and were
still around 2 hours later when we returned.

[cayugabirds-l] Brant Study

2019-01-20 Thread khmo
Last year, DEC kicked-off a five-year Atlantic brant migration and
breeding ecology study [1]with the New Jersey Department of
Environmental Protection and the Canadian Wildlife Service. Crews began
marking brant with geolocators attached to red and white plastic-colored
leg bands, which have a three-digit code of letters and numbers on them
(left photo). The geolocators themselves are clear, plastic electronics
about the size of a "fat nickel" and have a plastic cable lock tie. In
addition, crews will begin marking brant with two smaller colored leg
bands, one on each leg. These bands will consist of one letter or number
on a white background (right photo). Some birds also have GPS
transmitters on their backs (middle photo).

HOW CAN YOU HELP? Sightings and/or photographs of color bands and birds
with transmitters are very helpful to the study.  

* If you see a brant with either type of colored leg band, please
report the observation to the Patuxent Bird Banding Laboratory website
[2]. When you complete the report, the bird banding lab will e-mail you
a certificate of appreciation for your time and assistance. 
* If you see a bird with a transmitter on its back, but _NO_ color leg
bands, please e-mail us to report your observation. Pictures of the bird
would be greatly appreciated.

[cayugabirds-l] Brant, Aurora and Saw-whet Owls

2011-10-26 Thread John and Sue Gregoire
Around 1400 we had a mixed flock of Canada Geese and Atlantic Brant heading 
south.
The Brant were quite vocal. Not a common migrant as we have only had them in 
1996
and 2004 at this location between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes.

Enjoyed the conversation about the Aurora but we were bummed as we missed it. 
This
despite being outdoors trying to band Saw-whet owls during the times you folks 
in
Ithaca were enjoying the Northern Lights! Yes, we did look up but saw only a few
stars and clouds.

Saw-whets have been very slow this year. Despite 24 nights of effort we have 
only
banded 19 and had one previously banded bird. Numbers are considerably higher in
Canada and lower at most stateside stations. By this time last year, an 
irruption
year, we had banded 57 birds.

The foreign encounter was banded last October at Whitefish Point, Michigan. We 
also
had a reported return of one of the birds we banded last fall from Quebec -just
north of the northern tip of Maine.

We study molt under black light and that has been intriguing. Feather age not
readily discernible to the naked eye stands out beautifully in the black light. 
New
feathers fluoresce a bright pink and old and very old feathers don't fluoresce 
but
one can clearly see the difference. To answer the obvious question, this 
technique
does not work for all owl species nor for many other birds.

[cayugabirds-l] Brant, Dunlin

2009-10-23 Thread bob mcguire
I was at Myers for first light this morning watching three DUNLIN  
forage on the spit. Nothing much else in the drizzle. A few Ring- 
billed Gulls, Mallards, Starlings, and a distance Carolina Wren.


From there I went to Stewart Park, scanned the lake (Canada Geese,  
one PIED-BILLED GREBE and three GREEN-WINGED TEAL as well as the  
common gulls), and walked around the Swan Pen (one YELLOW-RUMPED  
WARBLER).


I was headed home when I got a call from Dave Nutter who had just  
followed a flock of Brant from Varna to the lake. I returned to East  
Shore Park and found the Brant flying down the lake, right on the  
deck, from the area of the weather buoy. I watched as they gained  
altitude and flew to the Inlet, then circled out over the lake, and  
back, and forth. They continued to circle a dozen times, seeming  
unable to make up their minds as to whether or not to continue south.  
Eventually they all settled on the grass at Treman Marina and began  
foraging with a bunch of Canadas. I drove to the marina and got close  
looks at the flock, now numbering 190 individuals. Just before I left  
(8:40) they all took off, circled again, and landed on the lake off  
the Swan Pen.

[cayugabirds-l] Brant and Black Scoters

2009-10-23 Thread Alm9413
I arrived at East Shore Drive before 5:00 P.M.. Gary Kohlenberg and Drew ?  
were there.  I saw the MANY reported Brant near the Weather Station in the  
middle of the lake.  Gary said the BLACK SCOTERS moved pretty far north,  
too far north to id them.  We went to Myers Park, and from the point, we  
eventually saw 12 Black Scoters heading south.  The 3 reported DUNLIN  were 
still around and very close to us, so we had excellent views of them.   Of 
note, there were many flocks of CORMORANTS heading south.   Unfortunately, I 
neglected to count them. (Guess I need to do much better  for E-bird.)  We did 
see many more of them at East Shore and at Portland  Point.  Not one Greater 
Cormorant among them so far.
Best, Ann Mitchell

[cayugabirds-l] Brant

2009-10-14 Thread Annette Finney
Just had a flock of 50 or 60 BRANT flying and vocalizing over Hospicare here
on South Hill, headed northeast.  What a thrill!
 
Also lines of Turkey Vultures streaming northward.
 
In the shrubs, lots of Bluebirds, Robins, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, with
numerous Red-winged Blackbirds chack-ing in the cattails.

Apologies. I meant to say the Brant were headed SOUTHeast -- not northeast.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Brant Turkey Vultures

2009-10-14 Thread Dave Nutter
Although I believe Annette's is the first report to Cayugabirds-L of Brant in 
the Cayuga Lake Basin this fall, it turns out several observers have been 
quietly reporting them to eBird: 

100 on 3 Oct at Martens Tract by Shawn Billerman  Mike Harvey 
125 on 4 Oct at Stewart Park by Mike Harvey
40 on 10 Oct from Collegetown by Glenn Seeholzer
42 on 11 Oct at Stewart Park by Jessie Barry  Chris Wood

Today was a big day for Turkey Vulture migration.  I think it was around 
2:30-3pm as I drove from Ithaca College to the airport I saw about 100, about 
1/5 strung out over south hill to go up the Cayuga Inlet valley, 3/5 in a big 
kettle over NYS 13 just east of Warren Road, the a few minutes later the other 
1/5 working their way south over the airport, Sapsucker Woods and the Northeast 
neighborhood, plus others during the day.

May be I watched the same group of Vultures from the campus. I was walking 
from BTI to Day Hall and right near Dairy Bar I saw this huge congregation 
at 15 to 10 minutes before 3.00 pm.  It reminded me of Veracruz hawk watch 
as they were gaining height. I also saw several Red-tailed Hawks, they were 
way above vultures and they were going simply non stop and were slightly 
bigger than dots. I must have seen at least 10 of them.
Then another group of TV's was seen from Uris Library around 3.10 PM that 
were mainly flying over downtown Ithaca and I would think about 25 of them.

I also saw a COOPER's HAWK from my office window heading south east.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Brant

2009-10-14 Thread PeF
Hi all,

a bit of boundaries but relates to this subject.

Saw around 1000 Brant Geese on several flocks (biggest I saw was some c.300
birds) flying over Coney Island from 1:30-4:00pm, and thought to myself
later there will be postings on Cayuga Birds... :)

Cheers,
Pedro
