[cayugabirds-l] New birds for my new yard list

2019-04-23 Thread Annette Nadeau
Since this is my first spring in Trumansburg since I left Brooktondale, I'm starting a new yard list. Just had a RED-SHOULDERED HAWK "making lazy circles in the sky" as it headed NW. As I watchef the hawk, my FOY HOUSE WREN started singing. It's like beginning birding all over again, though I

Well, the Chipping Sparrows finally made it to Auburn. I had two this morning. I still have American Tree Sparrows and Juncos. For the second time ever I had a Fox Sparrow. I’ve been watching for both birds. I’ve had quite a few Song Sparrows for quite awhile. I also have three male Purple

I spent last night at Marten’s Tract in order to record the various ducks feeding/courting there. A major bonus of being there in the evening, then at first light this morning, was the encounter with several recently-returned birds. An AMERICAN BITTERN called several times from the reeds along

Here in Auburn some new migrants are coming my way, finally. This morning I had a pair of Purple Finches. This is the earliest they've shown up here. They didn't stay long, unfortunately. I also had a Chipping Sparrow show up. They usually nest in my yard. Finally there was a White

yes, that Mockingbird is a virtuoso- when he's really geared up , so many songs go by so fast that it is bewildering. And he doesn't only do the showy songsters, his Willow Flycatcher imitation is just about perfect! But Marie knows him well, and his Wood Thrush isn't his best rendition.

Hi all, I'm doing a photo project at Salt Point in Lansing, and have been there most mornings for several weeks. It's been interesting to see and hear the changes in avifauna and behavior as the breeding season progresses. Especially interesting this morning were several new (to me) species:

I had to smile at you hesitance with the Wood Thrush because on May 9th I recorded a Northern Mockingbird at Salt Point singing the best series of imitations I've ever heard. I actually removed a couple birds from my eBird list when I watched the Mockingbird singing perfect renditions. He was

Both the Gray Catbird and Hummingbird showed up today. The Catbird sneaked onto the jelly feeder while I was filling the seed feeders. The Hummingbird closely examined the oranges I have out for the Oriole, but stopped at his feeder later on. The Oriole has been to the jelly feeder three

I just had two beautiful male Purple Finches show up at my feeders. It's the first time I've had two. I'm now waiting for the Orioles and RB Grosbeaks! Sent from my iPad -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

Two of my regulars have finally come north. Late afternoon, yesterday, I saw my catbird and hummingbird. Still no oriole. I thought I heard it yesterday, but with the mockingbird here daily, I'm not positive. No siting of it yet. The catbird came to the jelly feeder. I usually have my

I just had my FOS Rose Breasted Grosbeak at my feeders. When I got my paper, I finally heard a White Crowned Sparrow in my yard and later spotted him under the feeders. I've had a White Throated Sparrow for a few days. Yesterday, I heard a House Wren singing in the neighborhood.Since

Had a few new migrants. Saw a warbling vireo which nest here every year. Heard a bobolink, possibly a flyover which I've never heard here before. I also heard a great crested flycatcher doing it's wheep,wheep call. I also saw a female red breasted grosbeak at my feeder. There are also a pair

Around 7am, when the temp must have been about zero, and there was a lull in taxi business, I swung into Stewart Park to scan the lake, an amusing thing to try, as a low thick blanket of fog covered every bit of open water. But a single SWAN sat on the ice in the distance. I set up my telescope
