Last Friday I had a Red Breasted Nuthatch for one day. It was unbelievably tame and came within a foot of me. It’s only the second time I’ve had one here. I haven’t seen it again, unfortunately. I have four White Crowned Sparrows. One is an adult and the other three are first year Birds.

I’ve had two White Throated Sparrows the last three days. I’ve also had a few Yellow Rump warblers coming for the bayberries. I had so many last year they stripped the bushes clean. Not this year. My only other warblers were a juvenile Yellow Throat which do nest in my yard, and a female

I went out at 5:45 for the pre-dawn chorus. The temperature was 32 degrees F. From my place on Tupper Road I walked a few hundred yards over to Beech Hill Brook in the Lindsay-Parsons Preserve, hoping for some Hermit Thrushes. On my way I passed several Eastern Towhees that were exchanging

All, The word fallout has been thrown around liberally on this list this spring, but this morning was the closest to a landbird fallout we have had so far this year. Our northeast Ithaca yard boasted 14 species of warblers, including NORTHERN PARULA, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, MAGNOLIA, BLUE-WINGED,

While standing at our bay window looking at the birds, I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. As I slowly turned my head to look, I was wonderfully surprised to see a resplendent PINE SISKIN feeding at our window feeder. Our FOY --- for a couple of years! We also had our FOY PURPLE

New in my 'yard' this morning were more singing Fox Sparrows, a lone Chipping Sparrow, several Golden-crowned Kinglets, and one or two singing Purple Finches. Turkeys are gobbling, Ruffed Grouse are drumming, and I'll be on the watch for returning Hermit Thrushes. -Geo Kloppel, West Danby --

Migrants are still moving through. I've been out 5 minutes, just walking around my yard this morning, and I've already got Mourning Warbler and Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. -Geo Kloppel -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

Today, I could not resist the temptation to be lazy, watch for migrating raptors, test out my new camera, and visit with my parents. I stopped by their place at Vine Street in the City of Ithaca on East Hill and started watching skyward for migrating birds, sometime around 10:45am. I continued

Radar images early this morning suggested  fallout conditions in the southern tier of NY. There were fairly heavy radar bird echoes across  PA with much less returns in NY...especially north of Binghamton. A cold front dropped south last night and migrants eventually encountered northerly winds

Hi all, Today morning from 5 to 5.40 am I listened to migrant birds and recorded some of the calls. Based on the calls and the spectrogram, there were several groups of VEERIES that flew overhead. There were also some ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAKS and at least one WOOD THRUSH. I also heard

But I was musing about how birding and optics have changed. But now I am thinking maybe I should go back bare basics. Just use good old eyes and go closer to see birds! Or look for those birds that are visible! Do we really need to spend so much of money to see birds that far away?
