[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird and white-crowned sparrow

2019-05-04 Thread anneb . clark
An FOY hummingbird carefully (urgently?) foraging along my gooseberry bushes an 
hour ago so the FOY feeders are now out. Not sure if male or female. Distant 
and watched without binocs. 

Unexpected white-crowned sparrow under the feeders.

We have had regular visitors, but no adult males.  They come to the Rose of

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird this morning

2018-09-15 Thread Nancy Cusumano
I thought all my hummers were gone, but I saw  one this morning, a plump
little female, sitting on the garden fence and sipping from the red bee
balm. My feeders are still up too!

We had 6 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks frequenting the feeders often until 40 to 50 
Grackles and several Red-winged Blackbirds took over. The grackles have had the 
feeders for about a month.

We've also been inundated with R-b Grosbeaks and Purple Finches this year.
Way more than any year in the 4 summers we've been here in the woods next
to the Danby State Forest. One thing we're doing differently is bringing
the feeders in at night. They are hanging from hooks mounted on our deck
railing which is very convenient for us (and the squirrels), but I chased a
bear away in early May and I don't want to encourage his return.  Had I
known the noise I heard was a bear, I probably wouldn't have gone out there
so casually!

to refill it soon). There's one at it right now as I type!


What I've been having that is a bit out of the ordinary is that I've been 
swarmed by Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and Purple Finches all summer. I am now 
getting juveniles of both species hitting the feeders pretty hard. Just now, 
there were just at least 6 Purple Finches sitting on the single feeder. There 
was one adult male and 5 stripey ones that I suspect are juveniles.


They've been going through half a feeder of sunflower seeds each day. The 
flying-squirrels clean out whatever is left each night.

I have maintained a feeder all summer too with no results until yesterday when 
my husband saw one there briefly. We never seem to have any despite many 
plantings for them until August or when the Bee Balm and Rose of Sharon are 
flowering so I guess it is on time for our yard.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird!!!

2017-07-27 Thread Carol Keeler
I've had two pair of hummingbirds that I've seen regularly since they returned 
in May.  I have two feeders out on the deck plus plenty of flowers.  Mine like 
salvia and catmint.  I've often wondered if the same ones return here because 
they are used to my feeders.  That goes for my Orioles and catbirds that come 
to the jelly feeders.  I had to lure the Orioles from the woods slowly bringing 
the feeders closer to the house until they were on the deck.  I only had to do 
it one year.  Do they remember, or is it by chance that the birds find it?

Marc:

I have two feeders out. I usually also plant zinnias and hang a fuchsia 
out for them but I failed at gardening this year. They are visiting the 
daylilies, the monarda, the phlox, and the jewelweed in addition to the 
feeders.


I have read that it is helpful to hang at least two feeders in different 
locations in order to reduce competition and fighting.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird!!!

2017-07-27 Thread Melanie Uhlir
For a while the only evidence I had that hummingbirds were around was 
that the nectar level would drop in the feeders. However, woodpeckers 
like to drink the nectar too. But since my monarda started blooming I've 
been seeing them on a more regular basis and the past few days I've seen 
two at a time, chasing each other. I haven't seen an adult male for a 
few days. A hummingbird moth has joined in the monarda celebration.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird!!!

2017-07-27 Thread Kelly Lee Smith
We have a sopping wet male who continues to guard our feeder. He was missing 
for about a month but is back now. I guess he found something better to eat for 
a while... One of his favorite perches is the end of a zip tie that was placed 
on a fence long ago.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird update

2017-07-19 Thread Dave Nutter
Remember that hummingbird nest I mentioned awhile back? I checked it yesterday 
afternoon, and the 2 nestlings looked like actual birds. They were well past 
the lizard stage with wrinkly round chameleon eyes and serrated iguana ridges 
where pinfeathers were forming. They had grown real hummingbird beaks. One 
youngster was nicely contoured with a green tint above and a gray-speckled 
throat. The other looked a bit scruffier. It had all the feathers but they were 
not as open or lying as neatly, and they were more buff-tipped above. I could 
still see a bit of sheath on the outermost primary of that one, but the wings 
were generally hidden from view due to the upward viewing angle and the birds' 
position in the nest. Actually the nestlings were more on than in the nest for 
the past several days, and yesterday I could see a black-clawed pink toe 
gripping the rim. 

Standing side by side, they took turns exercising their wings behind the 
other's back. "Scruffy" was curious, probing the nest with its bill, tasting 
nearby leaves (including where they had defecated), and poking its sibling, not 
in a mean way, but not random either. "Svelte" looked dignified, and stayed 
still more, maybe having already done that exploration. Both tracked a nearby 
flying insect with their bills. And when mama alit on the rim they stretched 
up, and opened their rather dangerous bills to receive regurgitant pumped deep 
inside them through an even more dangerous bill. 

I checked again this morning about 5:45 between taxi calls, but the leaves were 
so droopy I couldn't see the nest in the sole sometimes-possible line of sight. 
(On Monday I had also looked from the taxi just before a storm. Those kids had 
quite a ride with the branch going up & down, but one of the leaves acted as a 
wind screen for them.) I checked again today from the taxi at 11:30am and 
finally got a view. The rim of the nest was an unbroken line, although the 
youngsters haven't been able to hide inside the cup for days. I got out for a 
closer look to double check. They were gone off into the wide world.  

A bit more about this nest. It's on one of several branches drooping down 
toward Fall Creek. It's not close enough to the water to be in danger from 
flooding, but there are other risks. It's next to a popular fishing spot. 
There's line tangled in an adjacent branch, and one time I arrived to find an 
angler trying to yank free a line and hook caught in a different adjacent 
branch, but shaking everything nearby. I mentioned to the angler that there was 
a bird nest in there, and the person packed up and left, perhaps a bit 
embarrassed at catching the tree instead of a fish. Meanwhile, I moved to the 
one line of sight where I could view the nest, and it still had babies. Perhaps 
that event was just another storm to them. Another time when I saw someone move 
along the bank right next to the nest to fish, I pointed out the nest and asked 
that they be extra careful, and that person obligingly moved a bit farther 
away. It's true that the mama chose to nest there despite people along the path 
and people fishing and canoeing, so the bird was clearly somewhat tolerant of 
humans, but if it was going to get disturbed I didn't want it to be birders' 
fault. The mama definitely noticed me when I was close, so I was only close for 
limited periods and late in the nesting. 

Anyway, I apologize for not having shared the nest's location, and for being 
vague to people on the path who asked what I was looking at. I feared that a 
constant stream of birders trying to see and photograph it might be too much. I 
made one exception. Melissa Groo, whom you all know as a wonderful 
photographer, asked if she could discreetly try her hand, and I thought it 
would be good to have high quality documentation, knowing that she would be 
very careful. She made several visits despite a busy schedule and the fact that 
the nest was frustratingly hard to view among the leaves. I also documented the 
progress of the nesting, and my photography got better during that six weeks. I

For years, we’ve put out orange halves for the orioles, but never had an oriole

FOY RUBY THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, male, at my feeder now.
Besides 2 B. Orioles eating oranges impaled on small tree branches near deck,  
2 G. Catbirds are eating grape jelly I had originally put out for the Orioles. 
Second year I have seen that.

While helping up & down Lansing Station Rd for our neighborhood clean up day, I 
heard a few B. Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, & Black Throated Green 
Warblers singing. Saw/heard a pair of American Redstarts, the first female of 
that sp. I have seen here. I also saw a little Chipping Sparrow bathing 
vigorously in a water-filled small ditch by a driveway.
Didn't have binocs along since they get in way of picking up & carrying junque, 
plus it was raining steadily, so didn't get to look at some other birds present 
in the gloom.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird/ other birds

2017-05-06 Thread Donna Lee Scott
FOY RUBY THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, male, at my feeder now.
Besides 2 B. Orioles eating oranges impaled on small tree branches near deck,  
2 G. Catbirds are eating grape jelly I had originally put out for the Orioles. 
Second year I have seen that.

While helping up & down Lansing Station Rd for our neighborhood clean up day, I 
heard a few B. Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, & Black Throated Green 
Warblers singing. Saw/heard a pair of American Redstarts, the first female of 
that sp. I have seen here. I also saw a little Chipping Sparrow bathing 
vigorously in a water-filled small ditch by a driveway.
Didn't have binocs along since they get in way of picking up & carrying junque, 
plus it was raining steadily, so didn't get to look at some other birds present 
in the gloom.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird

One of my female hummingbirds was sampling the grape jelly at the Oriole 
feeder.   She seemed to like it since she ate for several minutes.  I haven't 
seen a hummer eat jelly before.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] hummingbird aggression

2015-05-13 Thread Geo Kloppel
Both sexes are aggressive. It's pretty interesting, but if their squabbles 
become tiresome, you can put up more feeders, located on opposite sides of the 
house, or even farther apart if you've got room.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird

2014-08-18 Thread Carol Keeler
I have a new bird coming to the jelly feeder.  It's the RTH Hummingbird.  While 
I've seen it hovering around the feeder, I wasn't sure why.  Today I saw it 
lick the grape jelly!  It's not a surprise since it's a sweet treat, but the 
fact that it tried it surprised me.  Did it get the idea from watching the 
other birds?  I originally thought it might be going after small bugs, but 
today it went right to the jelly.   

I still have male Orioles coming to the feeder, as well as a young Catbird.  
Unfortunately, the English House Sparrows and House Finches hog most of the 
jelly.

It's been interesting to watch the House Sparrows and Starlings get suet from 
the upside down feeder that's meant for birds that can cling upside down.  They 
get below the feeder, fly up, and grab the bars.  They can cling for a short 
while. They manage to knock off enough suet and seed to the ground for them to 
eat.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird Moth

2014-08-13 Thread Kathleen Kramer
Although this posting isn't about a bird, it's close!  On Monday, my 
husband and I noticed what we thought was a very large bee visiting the 
pink petunias planted near our garage.  Looking closer, we saw it wasn't 
a bee, and now seemed to resemble a small hummingbird.  We knew it was 
neither, especially because its wings were transparent and the 
feather-like covering on its body was not feathers. It was a Hummingbird 
Moth, of course, and a first-time sighting for us.  A beautiful little 
creature.  Are they common?

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird male

2012-09-07 Thread Marie P Read
Hi all,

Suddenly, yesterday and today, there has been a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird 
at my feeder (there have been several females/immatures consistently). Yet it 
has been nearly 2 weeks since I saw my male who was here all summer. Whether 
the current one is actually mine (if so, where has he been?...not nearby 
since all the hummingbird flowers in my yard have faded) or a new guy who has 
just arrived from farther north, will remain unsolved—although his gorget is 
much subdued, but maybe that is to be expected at this time of the summer.

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird

2011-12-14 Thread Carol Keeler
I am very disappointed to report that the hummingbird never returned.  I had so 
hoped it would see one of the feeders and stay awhile.  I guess there's no 
point in putting the feeders out again tomorrow with the high winds and rain...

[cayugabirds-l] Hummingbird pollination

2010-08-12 Thread Kevin J. McGowan
Nice to see Marie’s photographs of the hummingbird and flower.  I’m always 
jealous.

I had taken some photos in the bird feeding garden at the Lab a couple of weeks 
ago illustrating the same thing.  The best is at
http://picasaweb.google.com/KevinJ.McGowan/BasinBirds2010#5504584615438712834.

Look how the bee balm seems to be reaching out to touch the back of the bird’s 
head.

Cheers,

Kevin

[cayugabirds-l] hummingbird!

2009-09-19 Thread Ray Zimmerman
I just saw a hummingbird fly by as I was sitting on my porch in  
Eastern Heights. Isn't he a little late in leaving?
