Yes it’s a young Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, molting into adult plumage. An adult 
male would have a red throat, so I’d guess this was a young female.
Nice bird!

Hello, This bird has been coming to our feeders in Syracuse, alone, for the 
last week or so. Is it a juvenile male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker? Otherwise, we 
are stuck for identification.

We've never seen one here before. We live in a residential neighborhood in the 
city.

Wish we weren't dealing with the pandemic or we would invite you all over for a 
look. Meredith Leonard and Ed Pitts

At least one merlin has been very active in the Village of Freeville. It
has been keeping me company as I garden in the yard, but I am assuming it
is back at its regular nest down the road a bit.
Best Wishes,

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Help with bird song?

2019-06-08 Thread Magnus Fiskesjo
Hi!

I am no expert but if a junco, it should be possible to spot? I've stalked 
quite a few, to try and see if I can notice a difference between them and 
Chipping sparrows. And in my experience at least, both species tend to sit at 
the outer end of a branch when singing, often "2 o'clock", less often "12 noon" 
like you saw. I've discovered that mobilizing some patience, to scan possible 
locations around the trees in the direction of the sound, especially outer ends 
of branches midway up, one can often find the singing bird at last. It can be 
maddening because they tend to be in "visible yet hard-to-spot" locations and 
I'll often say, how come I did not see if before. I guess to see it one has to 
enter that special yoga trance state of bird watching which is hard to achieve. 

My 5 cents! 

If it's a junco it's an unusual voice for it!

Hi Barbara,

In the newest version (V2) of the Sibley app for iPhone/iPad, under the 
Dark-eyed Junco species account, there are several recordings of songs and 
calls. But there is one, which was recorded by our own Bob Mcguire in NY, that 
sounds the closest to your bird. The second trill on the bird in his recording 
is a bit truncated from your bird's song. So, I agree with the others that a 
Dark-eyed Junco, Slate-colored, is my best guess, too.

The song has been very consistent all three days I heard it - a high trill,

It’s in a smallish grove/hedgerow between two fields, with a larger grove

Well, even sticking my laptop into my ear I can't hear the second trill.
Heck, I can barely hear the first one. The thing is the pitch of the first
one is right on for D-e Junco, we are surrounded with them up here in the
Hemlock Plantation. I have never heard them issue a later higher trill.

[cayugabirds-l] Help with bird song?

2019-06-08 Thread Barbara Bauer Sadovnic
This bird has been on Tucker Rd. in Enfield since Friday May 31, at least.  I 
only got a brief look at it, on Tuesday - small and backlit - grayish, clear 
pale breast, shortish tail.  But the song is distinctive.  It was singing again 
today, but I couldn’t see it!  What is it?

[cayugabirds-l] Help me find Osprey nests

2019-05-31 Thread Salt Point Osprey Camera
Fellow birders,


I've been surveying Ospreys in NY for ten years and am expanding my Osprey
survey to include western NY and the Adirondack Park. To do this
accurately, I will need the help of birders like you from across the state
to report your Osprey sightings.



Please send me the locations of any Osprey sightings and Osprey nests you
find. The Cayuga Lake Osprey Trail

 lists all the nest currently under study. thank you in advance for your
help!


Eyes to the sky!

[cayugabirds-l] Help Merlin nests

2019-04-10 Thread John Confer
In the last 5 years I have monitored 25 Merlin nests. Results are to be 
included in a poster for a professional Behavior conference. The accumulated 
data are used to help understand Merlin nesting biology.
Many of the nests were reported to me by others. I have followed up on every 
Merlin nest report to eBird for Tomplins County, thanks. I would appreciate any 
additional information.
I do not share the location of nests that can only be seen from private 
property.
Merlin are well adapted to human presence, sometimes even nesting over busy 
sidewalks, or bordering school playgrounds. Nonetheless, I do not share the 
location of nests until the adults are feeding young. By this time the adults 
are extremely unlikely to abandon a nest due to additional human presence.

ONLY IN ITHACA.  I was trying to verify a nest location this morning. I walked 
up to a viewing location carrying my scope on a tripod and binoculars around my 
neck (with my dog on a leash). As I walked up to a viewing spot for the 
probably nest, three people were getting out of a parked car and began 
gesturing upward. One turned toward me and asked if the pair of birds over 
their heads were Merlin. (Why they would ask me, I don't know.) Indeed, the 
female was plucking a small gray bird with a white abdomen and undertail 
coverts (but neither head nor tail because the male had helpfully partially 
plucked the bird for his mate. The feathers were dropping down to the sidewalk. 
As I watched the pair of birds waiting to see if either would fly to the 
putative nest, someone came out of a house with her daughter and asked if they 
could see the bird. Turns out she had a summer internship on a Spotted Owl 
project. Her higher pitched voice was better at attracting the owls than that 
of her supervisor, a point of some pride. While we watched the pair of birds 
another woman came down the sidewalk. She said she had seen the birds before 
and recognized that they were hawks. She thought they were smaller than 
red-tails and she planned to use her "Merlin app" to try to identify them. I 
admit there were two people who passed by with eyes averted as if ignoring this 
wierd person with a scope and tripod standing on the sidewalk. But really, 3 of 
5 groups of people who walked by knew about Merlin. Where else but Ithaca could 
you watch a pair of falcons and see the city downtown while standing on a busy 
sidewalk next to a busy street with 60% of the passerbys wanting to know more 
about the falcons? (See, I didn't tell you where the birds were.)
Incidentally, neither female nor male went to the putative nest in a half hour 
making me think that on this cold morning she had not begun to incubate.

John

Re: [cayugabirds-l] help determining the time to mow fields

2016-03-14 Thread Geo Kloppel
The NYDEC and Cornell Cooperative Extension documents that were mentioned seem 
to be oriented toward management for grassland wildlife, so they say that no 
cutting should take place between late April and mid August. That's fine if 
you're managing a nature preserve, but it's probably not practical for people 
in the business of making hay, like the one Michael was talking to at Winter 
Market. Farmers who want guidance about reducing the negative impact of their 
hay making operations on grassland birds need a scheme that recognizes the 
contingencies of avian breeding and the economic constraints of farming.

A useful document produced by Cornell Cooperative Extension can be found at

Don't forget timing of mowing is important for fawns and other wildlife, too.

I'm fine with the discussion taking place on the list. I think it would be 
good, in the end, if one person could work directly with the livestock guy I 
talked with to advise/train/support him over time. It's certainly a useful kind 
of knowledge for livestock producers who manage fields for hay. I wonder if the 
county extension folks are a useful resource to help out and provide support

fields with regard to protecting nesting grassland birds and their offspring.

I would like this information to be posted on the list.
I often toy with the idea of trying to convince some local landowners here in

RE:[cayugabirds-l] help determining the time to mow fields

2016-03-14 Thread Michael O. Engle
I'm fine with the discussion taking place on the list. I think it would be 
good, in the end, if one person could work directly with the livestock guy I 
talked with to advise/train/support him over time. It's certainly a useful kind 
of knowledge for livestock producers who manage fields for hay. I wonder if the 
county extension folks are a useful resource to help out and provide support 
with this topic.

While I can understand why Michael wants to keep the conversation with the 
livestock person off the list, I think it would benefit many of us if we knew 
what are the recommendations are for when is the best time to mow hay or grass 
fields with regard to protecting nesting grassland birds and their offspring.

I would like this information to be posted on the list.
I often toy with the idea of trying to convince some local landowners here in 
Lansing to mow large grass expanses in later summer, but I don't know what the 
cut-off date is.

hays a number of fields and would like some guidance on the best time to do the 
haying to protect birds that nest in the fields he cuts. Please respond to me

Re: [cayugabirds-l] help determining the time to mow fields

2016-03-14 Thread Geo Kloppel
Here's my take:

I think a cut-off date (a one-date-fits-all approach) is pretty hopeless, as it 
forces you to postpone all your cutting until quite late, reducing the economic 
viability of your business operation. 

In my opinion it's much better to do an assessment year-by-year and 
field-by-field. Beginning in late May or early June, you study each of the 
fields you intend to cut, in order to determine which species are currently 
breeding there, and then you schedule the cuttings accordingly. Fields without 
any breeding birds can be cut as early as you please. Fields with species that 
are under very serious threat in your region can be left entirely untouched. 
And for all the cases in between those extremes, you can consult resources like 
the NY breeding season tables, and try to balance the economic needs of your 
operation against the interests of present species that may indeed suffer 
immediate reproductive losses at your hands, but that would have no future in 
our region if your activity were so unprofitable that it ceased altogether and 
all the fields reverted to forest.

[cayugabirds-l] Help with fox vs song sparrow id

2014-05-03 Thread M K Mannella
I have small sparrows under the feeders. The are heavily streaked on the face 
and body, with a prominent spot on the breast. My first impression is that they 
are song sparrows but then they do the backward hop to scrape at the decaying 
leaves. My questions to anyone who can offer some advice on id:
Do song sparrows dig like that?
Are fox sparrows always reddish? (These birds are not)

I hope you don't have a repeat of yesterday's disaster. Could you send me a
photo of your office building? I might be able to offer more immediate
remedies in the event it does.

I attached the American Bird Conservancy's *Bird Friendly Building

problematic
buildings. Your situation with the trees and berries next to mirrored glass
is particularly unfortunate.

Let's hope you have a better day today.

Unfortunately, there is also a stand of trees that reflect in the glass,
not just one berry-producing tree. A banner is a good idea.

 Marc,

 I hope you don't have a repeat of yesterday's disaster. Could you send me
 a photo of your office building? I might be able to offer more immediate
 remedies in the event it does.

 I attached the American Bird Conservancy's *Bird Friendly Building 
 Design*guidelines, which contains numerous mitigation measures for problematic
 buildings. Your situation with the trees and berries next to mirrored glass
 is particularly unfortunate.

 Let's hope you have a better day today.

 Marc,

 I got your post too late to help you today. I am sorry for the awful day
 you had. What a shame that happened to the waxwings. As Geo suggested, try
 to get rid of the berries, which might be attracting the waxwings. Without
 seeing the building, I'm guessing the trees reflect in the mirrored glass,
 giving the illusion of a woodland where in reality there is glass. Removing
 the trees or substituting non-mirror glass or another material in the
 elevator are the best, but expensive solutions.

 This won't help you tomorrow, but perhaps in the weeks to come. Breaking
 up the solid expanse of glass with tape can prevent collisions.

 What town do you live in? I am part of a bird collision study surveying
 the Cornell campus for possible collision prone buildings such as your
 office building. Your data will be useful to us as well.

 Can you estimate how many birds died today by your office? Overnight?
 Where all the victims Cedar waxwings or were other species mixed in? What
 side of the building is the elevator on and how many stories are there in
 the building?

 If you want technical guidelines for mediating problematic buildings,
 please let me know.

 Many thanks.

A lot of outdoor restaurants string lines or netting over their decks to keep 
the birds away. This might be a fairly unobtrusive way to keep the birds away 
from your building, by running lines down from the roof to the ground.

Help Prevent Bird Collisions--Volunteers Needed This Spring for Survey

The Cayuga Bird Club Conservation Action Committee and the Cornell Student
Bird Club are conducting a survey on bird collisions with buildings on the
Cornell  campus during the spring migration and need your help. Volunteers
are especially needed during the CU spring break (March 29-April 6) when
most of our student volunteers will be away. Morning survey walks will take
about 40 minutes of your time. Sign up for one morning or as often as you
can. Thank you in advance for your help!

*Cornell Campus Bird Strike Monitoring Program - Spring 2014*

The goal of the Cornell Campus Bird Strike Monitoring Program is to gather
data on which buildings are having the most problems with bird strikes. By
conducting morning surveys daily, we hope to collect consistent data  to
learn more about the magnitude of the bird strike problem on campus. The
data collected from this project would allow us to be better informed when
investigating solutions to any campus bird strike concerns.

For more information on the program itself and its protocols, please take a
look at our general

This is off topic, but ultimately related very much to SAVING places to bird.

I and other wildlife lovers in Lansing need help from resident Lansing birders 
on a time-sensitive bit of work.

I need to be terse here because the work may be controversial in Lansing.
The job will take you only a few minutes, I promise!

[cayugabirds-l] Help the town of Lansing install 2 new nest box trails!

2013-10-10 Thread Robyn Bailey
Fellow birders,

The CBC conservation action committee is organizing a fun work party. As some 
of you may know , the bird club's Conservation Action Committee has been 
working to bring two new nest box trails to the Lansing area. One trail will 
meander through the natural areas at Salt Point, near where the osprey platform 
recently went up. The other will follow the Lansing Center Trail, across from 
the Lansing Library. Target species include black-capped chickadee, eastern 
bluebird, eastern screech-owl, tree swallow, and other common cavity-nesting 
birds. The committee has staked out the trails and acquired the materials, 
together with the Lansing Pathways committee, but we are soliciting volunteers 
to help install these boxes.

The Conservation Action Committee, Lansing Pathways, and any other interested 
volunteers will be meeting at Salt Point on Sat., Oct. 19 at 9:00 am to install 
the nesting boxes. When Salt Point is finished, we will move up to the Lansing 
Center Trail to put boxes up there.  If needed, we will meet again on Sun., 
Oct. 20 at 9:00 am at the Lansing Center Trail to finish up. Come for as long 
as you can, and feel free to call/text on Sunday to check if we're still 
meeting (706.304.7984).

We will have all the nesting boxes, hardware, and a few ladders needed for the 
project.  Bring gloves, hammers, and cordless drills/screw drivers if you have 
them. Bring your binoculars, too, and bird while you work. [There will be a 
foot race at Myer's Park early Saturday, so please park along the gravel road 
in Salt Point near where the trail starts at the cement barriers, being careful 
not to block the road for runners.]

Please email me if you are able to help, just so I have an idea how many 
volunteers will be there.  Pass this email on to anyone you think may be 
interested in helping.

Happy nest trails,

Robyn Bailey
(together with Candace Cornell, Jody Enck, Meena Haribel, and Linda Orkin)

[cayugabirds-l] Help indentifying a bird sighting locally (Frigate-like?)

2013-06-24 Thread THF mail
New member to the list, I joined to get help identifying a bird(s) I witnessed 
in Lansing.

I was hoping to find out more about what type of bird that I saw yesterday, and 
also a few years ago, both here in Lansing. I enjoy birds very much, and I am 
no expert, but am familiar with the local types.

The sighting a few years ago happened when I was standing in my front yard and 
saw a large dark colored bird flying in my direction. We have an open area here 
and can see all the way from our house, which is about a mile from Myers Point, 
straight down the lake to Ithaca. This bird was flying about 75 to 100 feet in 
the air and flew directly over me heading North. The first thing that amazed me 
was the size as it had a huge wingspan. The two other features that I observed 
is that the wings were gull shaped, and it had a long forked tail trailing. At 
the time I had never heard of a Frigate bird, but after looking through some 
guides it seemed to be the only one that matched what I saw. 

Yesterday, (June 23), I was inside my house and was looking out the 2nd floor 
window and saw a very large bird fly past (up higher in the sky). I ran outside 
to get a better look and saw the same long tail, huge size. The other features 
I was able to see on this bird was a light patch on it's chest (the rest of the 
bird was dark colored), and the shape of the beak. Looking at pictures in one 
of my bird guides, it matched a female Frigate bird in the chest patch I saw, 
as well as the beak shape. It also had the gull wing shape and flew from West 
to East.

My question is that, as I've been told it's unlikely that these were Frigate 
birds, what were they? I would appreciate any ideas.

In both cases I had a very good look at the birds. The wing shape was 
definitely a gull wing shape, the wingspan was huge. They both had trailing 
tail feathers, with the first sighting a definite fork to the tail, the recent 
one seemed to have the tail feathers together. In both sightings the birds were 
moving pretty fast, no gliding, just constant wing pumping and flew on a 
straight line.

As I mentioned, I'm by no means an expert, but I do know what Herons, Eagles, 
Turkey Vultures, etc. look like, and these birds were definitely out of the 
ordinary. 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dave

2012-06-18 Thread Lee Ann van Leer
Laurie R. gave me info about creating a  detour around the beaver flooded 
section of Yellow Trail at Lindsay-Parsons that I referred to in my last post.  
Since this is one of our Cayuga Basin birding hotspots maybe some if you will 
want to help or appreciate the update. thanks to Laurie. 


Work day with good company at Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Reserve

06/23/2012, 9am-1pm: NYS Rt. 34/96, Town of Danby
Help! The beavers have flooded the Yellow Trail, along the north side of the 
preserve! Through the generosity of the neighboring landowner, the Land Trust 
has permission to temporarily re-route part of the Yellow trail onto 
neighboring private land to avoid the flooded area. Volunteers are needed to 
help move a wooden foot bridge. Tools and work gloves will be provided, or 
bring your own. Meet at John Smith’s house at 2373 West Danby Road (a.k.a. NYS 
Rt. 34/96, in the hamlet of West Danby). Please bring your own lunch and water. 
Contact Chris Olney (607-275-9487, chrisolney(at)fllt.org) at the Land Trust 
office if you'd like to sign up for this work day.

[cayugabirds-l] help to ID gray and white bird

2012-03-29 Thread M Kardon
Could someone help to identify the bird we saw this morning on the ground and 
in the bushes near our feeders?  See the three links below.  We're wondering if 
it could be a leucistic junco. It was significantly larger than the goldfinches 
hopping around near it.  Marsha and Fred Kardon

Considering the belly color and where it begins on the flanks, and the dark
eye, I think your guess is a good one.

[cayugabirds-l] Help-out the Cornell Lab of Ornithology YardMap Project?

2011-01-31 Thread Rhiannon L. Crain
Hello Ithaca-area birders and gardeners,

As you may have already heard, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is creating an
exciting new project called YardMap. YardMap will be a website where birders
and gardeners can come together to map their yards, or any green space, to
see how they can make them more bird-friendly.

Right now YardMap is still being developed and tested, and we’re looking for
a few birders and gardeners to try it out for us in its current iteration.
Would you be willing to help us out?

What we are asking is for people to volunteer to come to the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology and spend 90 minutes with us trying out the new web site. It
hasn’t launched publicly yet, so you’ll be one of the first people to try it
out, tell us what you think, and give valuable feedback about how it can be
improved on a one-on-one basis.

This is a very important phase of the project and we hope you can join us.
As a thank you for participating, we can offer you a $40 gift card!

If you are interested, please take this short survey to let us know:
https://ilinet.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_40X0b8fk7EUNAiM

Testing dates include a variety of times on February 8th and 9th.


Sincerely,

The Cornell YardMap Team

FYI: The organization name, ILI, found in the survey url (ilinet.com) is our
partner organization responsible for conducting evaluations of the YardMap.
We just want to make sure you feel comfortable clicking on an unfamiliar
link!

Also, feel-free to email us at rb...@cornell.edu with specific questions or
concerns anytime!

[cayugabirds-l] help with sound

2010-10-11 Thread Asher Hockett
Yesterday, working outside, I heard a mechanical rattling/chattering sound
followed by a pair of loud trumpets. I looked up, and saw nothing, but then
I heard the two trumpet sounds again, further south and then a few seconds
later I heard them again, even further away.

I am not sure if the Sandhill Cranes do that loud trumpeting, but the first
sound I heard could have been a Sandhill sound. The trumpeting was very loud
and quite musical, and each time I heard it it was two, one and then a
second later another. Not like anything I have heard before.

Ideas folks?
