I did the Raptor Survey last night and saw no snow geese in the Mucklands. In 
the Morgan Rd area Tundra swans and Sandhill cranes were seen. As of last night 
most areas were still frozen and snow covered. There was a nice variety of 
waterfowl at the Cayuga Lake State Park boat launch. Janet Akin

[cayugabirds-l] Mucklands

2015-04-02 Thread Geo Kloppel
Huge numbers of Snow Geese occupied the Montezuma mucklands along both sides of 
rte 31 yesterday - perhaps 100,000. Mixed in were plenty of Tundra Swans, 
Northern Pintails, American Widgeon, etcetera. More Tree Swallows too. The 
lanes out across the muck, being elevated a few inches above the water, offered 
forage to Horned Larks and American Pipits. Many photographers were clustered 
around the derelict POTATOES building.

At MNWR headquarters the Wildlife Drive was open to 2-way traffic. Among the 
waterfowl around the visitors' center were a few Green-winged Teal. I looked in 
vain for Shovelers, Blue-winged Teal or any shorebirds.

Saw the two Red-necked Grebes on the Union Springs Mill Pond.

[cayugabirds-l] Mucklands plovers

2014-04-26 Thread Jay McGowan
One BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER and one AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, found by Dave
Nicosia a little earlier, are still present in the Savannah Mucklands,
north side of the road near east end. Nothing else amazing up here.
Pectoral, Dunlin, snipe, both yellowlegs at Carncross, crane at Martens,
Bank Swallows at Van Dyne Spoor. Bonaparte's Gulls and Caspian Terns
everywhere.

[cayugabirds-l] Mucklands Snow Geese

2010-03-12 Thread James G. Kohlenberg
This afternoon I was finally able to find a large flock of SNOW GEESE at the 
south end of the mucklands. Over the 2 hours I watched this flock it grew to 
45,000 birds as more came in from the north. The flock periodically rose to 
circle as BALD EAGLES flew over. I was able to find one ROSS'S GOOSE before 
eye-strain set in. On Rt-89 between East Rd. and the mucklands I stopped to 
enjoy hundreds of thousands of BLACKBIRDS streaming north over the road from 
the nearby trees.



The main pool at Montezuma held 1100, most if not all, TUNDRA SWANS. There was 
a large flock of AYTHYA, NORTHERN PINTAIL, GREEN-WINGED TEAL, A.WIGEON, 
GADWALL, BLACK DUCK, MALLARD, RUDDY DUCK.



Stewart Park still has a terrific variety of waterfowl, including RUDDY DUCK, 
WOOD DUCK, RED-BREASTED/HOODED/COMMON MERGANSERS, A.WIGEON, C.GOLDENEYE, 
BUFFLEHEAD, SCAUP, RING-NECKED, MALLARDS. There was also a leucistic Mallard 
that I haven't seen before.



The east side of Cayuga lake, between the ends, was pretty empty. The west side 
south of Cayuga Lake State Park had some large mixed flocks of waterfowl, but I 
didn't have time to scan them.



Happy birding,



Gary
