In Newfield this morning, I counted three Common Yellowthroats in neighbors’ 
fields and woods.  Such welcome sounds.  Still no hummingbirds!

That sounds more pleasant than the early morning alarm we’ve had for the past 
couple of weeks: a yellow-bellied sapsucker drumming on the downspout of our 
gutter. He’s been at it today for 45 minutes! The resonance is quite impressive.

[cayugabirds-l] Common yellowthroat, Salmon Creek

2019-04-20 Thread Karen Edelstein
This morning, and for 3-4 days prior, I've been hearing common
yellowthroats singing in the woods behind my house (Salmon Creek Valley,
Lansing). In past years, they've also arrived on the early side, yet
hearing one singing by (or before) April 20th seemed a little odd. But this
morning, the bird was right outside my bedroom window, and very loud. I
checked it against the song on eBird (first recording on the list) and it
was identical--basically counter-singing to what was outside. I'm 100% sure
on this one.

[cayugabirds-l] Common Yellowthroat in Cornell's Wee Stinky Glen

2017-05-05 Thread Laura J. Heisey
The one day I didn't carry my binoculars! I've never heard a Common 
Yellowthroat anywhere near there.

It was singing from the honeysuckle bushes along the creek south of the stone 
footbridge, at ~11:45 this morning. I didn't have time to stick around and get 
a look at it.

[cayugabirds-l] Common Yellowthroat singing

2015-09-09 Thread Melanie Uhlir
I am new to Fall birding. I usually find the approach of Autumn 
crushingly depressing, so I don't know how common it is for migrating 
species to sing. A Common Yellowthroat was just "Witchity"-ing in my 
yard in South Freeville. Typical behavior? The species nests on our 
property each year. Would it be our local male singing or more likely a 
migrant moving through? Does the day length sometimes trigger their 
springtime hormones?


I apologize if these are stupid questions.

Melanie

[cayugabirds-l] Common Yellowthroat odd song

2012-05-20 Thread Dave Nutter
Early yesterday morning on Third Street Extension, the road between the wastewater treatment plant and the Cornell crew boathouse, I heard a song I didn't recognize, repeated several times. It was strong, staccato, even in pitch, and mostly even in volume. I thought it was a warbler. I transcribed it:WHET WHET WHET WHET WHET WHET tu WHIT tyuI didn't have time to pursue the bird, and later that morning I heard a Wilson's Warbler singing at Salt Point which had some similarities. This morning I got back to Third Street Extension, and yesterday's song was still being belted out. I tracked it down and was very surprised to find a COMMON YELLOWTHROAT making it. This song has none of the repeating phrase characteristics, of a typical Common Yellowthroat song. Again I'll ask if anyone else is familiar with such a vocalization from this species. It's not among the choices on BirdTunes. I've started plowing through the 245 examples in the Library of Natural Sounds, but that's going to take some time. Meanwhile, if anyone wants to listen to or record it, it's been around the third utility pole from the corner, on the west side (between the road and the NYSDOT facility) among the Cottonwoods, Willows, etc.--Dave Nutter
