[cayugabirds-l] Pipits @ Salt Pt

2016-01-09 Thread Suan Yong
At least 3, maybe 5, American Pipits foraging invisibly on the beach on the 
north side of Salt Point (flushed there by me from closer to the point). Still 
struggling to photograph them.

[cayugabirds-l] Pipits @ Salt Pt + others; Ravens

2016-01-09 Thread Donna Lee Scott
I met Suan at Salt Point after his Pipit post below. He said there were 7 
AMERICAN PIPITS according to his heat sensing device/screen, and that they are 
very hard to see against the dull colored lake-bed rocks on the shore edge.
I later saw one on the north side near the point. Never found the others.
Then I saw 7 EASTERN BLUEBIRDS which landed near and on a small frozen pond on 
the north shore lake bed of Salt Point. Neat to see a lovely bright male 
Bluebird standing on the snow-covered ice!

Also saw N. CARDINAL, RED BELLIED WOODPECKER, 3 BLUE JAYS, 4 E. STARLINGS, 4 A. 
CROWS, and several RING BILLED BULLS, along with a group of intrepid, 
scope-lugging birders across Salmon Creek near the point of Myers Park.

Later on Asbury Road near the end of Collins Rd. I saw 2 COMMON RAVENS fooling 
around way out in a large farm field. One was doing that amusing hopping, 
following after the other as it walked away.

I posted some photos of today's pipits, including the infrared image, on 
facebook:

If you can't see the IR image, I posted it here too:

I did eventually see all seven fly together a short distance.
