[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler still at Stewart Park? - maybe!

2021-06-09 Thread Tom Schulenberg
this afternoon I kayaked around the south end of the lake, from Stewart
Park over to Hog Hole. shortly after putting in at Stewart Park, directly
across from the Cascadilla Boat House, I heard what sounded for all the
world like a Prothonotary Warbler singing. it wasn't singing much
(admittedly, it was mid afternoon), but I heard at least four short song
bouts. unfortunately I never saw it, partly because it sang relatively
infrequently (hence difficult to track), and also in part because it seemed
to be moving in the opposite direction from me (the bird was moving
upstream, whereas my kayak party was heading out), so I never got a visual
confirmation. frustrating! but I strongly suspect that there still is a
Prothonotary at the south end of Cayuga Lake, perhaps spending as much or
more time in East Jetty Woods as in Stewart Park.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary question

2021-05-14 Thread Jay McGowan
Most years we see at least two males and almost always at least one female
in the area along Armitage, and usually confirm breeding in the nest box
seeing them bringing in food or removing fecal sacs. Some years we do see
the fledglings as well.

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary question

2021-05-14 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
I am curious: has breeding been confirmed for the Prothonotary Warbler on 
Armitage Road?

I /heardsaw the male singing and bringing moss in and out of the box yesterday, 
as I have in the recent past years. But I don't remember ever hearing of a 
female, and certainly not fledglings. Does he have wishful thinking?

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary warbler

2020-05-30 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
I had great views of the prothonotary warbler on Armitage Rd earlier this 
afternoon. As soon as I stepped out of my car, I heard singing from the nest 
box! See Montezuma Audubon Center on Facebook for a video, or find us on 
Instagram: montezuma_audubon_center.

Hi all, 

I’m hoping someone can tell me where to locate the prothonotary nest box.  I am 
on Armitage road just past the iron bridge.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler

2020-05-18 Thread Geo Kloppel
Yes, tent tree or maybe forest tent caterpillar, or some similar Lepidopteran 
that lays a compact mass of many hundreds of eggs that all hatch simultaneously 
like those in the photo. Food for Cuckoos, but probably not Prothonotary 
Warblers.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler

2020-05-17 Thread Marie P. Read
Hi Diana and Cayugabirders,

Here is what birdsoftheworld.org (formerly Birds of North America online) says 
about Prothonotary Warbler nesting:

 
and 

and


No mention of larvae. I can't quite tell what kind of larvae they are from the 
one photo I can see on your site. But very interesting observation. I didn't 
notice anything like this obvious new hatch of larvae on the 3 boxes I observed 
there last week at Armitage Rd. I also saw/heard at least 3 different males 
along the road.

Hi All,
I was able to watch the Prothonotary Warbler on Armitage Rd. For.  an extended 
period of time. In the morning it was mostly foraging and singing as well as 
displaying periodically. Then in mid day, it started bringing moss into the 
nest box. I was wondering if this is the male making moss offerings. I never 
saw more than one bird together that day.  Occasionally it would leave with a 
pale green larvae in it’s peak. After looking at photos when I got home, I 
noticed that there was a whole area of larvae around the nest box hole. Someone 
else who was observing at a different angle thought it was adhering insects to 
the box. I only could see the bird bringing back moss, but can anyone explain 
the larvae at the nest hole? There are a few photos

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary warblers

2020-05-07 Thread Joe Welklin
Hi all,

I had two Prothonotary warblers moving North from 867 Taughannock Blvd just
30-40 minutes ago. They're moving north along the edge of the lake in
between 89 and the lake. If anyone's interested I'd recommend walking
slowly up the edge of the road and keeping an eye out for yellow. They were
singing a little bit! They were moving quite slow.

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary @ Conn Hill

2014-06-01 Thread Suan Yong
Had a prothonotary warbler this morning at Connecticut Hill, near the 
intersection of Boylan, Lloyd Starks, and Connecticut Hill Roads. SSW of that 
intersection is a pond with a beaver dam at the south end, and the bird was 
singing from a willow across the pond. It is accessible via some informal 
trails heading south from that intersection which I don't know very well 
myself. Unfortunately, the bird was JOOB (just out of basin, probably by no 
more than a few hundred yards).

A couple photos here:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/50094151@N03/sets/72157645005809673

Also seen elsewhere at Ct Hill was a barred owl flying silently to perch 
briefly for good looks before gliding away. And my arrival at the intersection 
above was greeted by a hooded warbler, both aurally and visually.

FYI this was a scouting trip with local trailmaster Dave Gislason for a 
possible CBC field trip this weekend. Stay tuned FMI.

We are watching the Prothonotary warbler at Armitage Rd. going in and out of 
the nest hole. I'm pretty sure it was carrying food. It's certainly acting like 
it's feeding young. We have some photos of the bird as it prepares to leave the 
hole after each visit, when it pauses with head sticking out before flying. 

Cerulean Warblers are singing around us as well as Northern Waterthrush and 
Warbling Vireo.

One PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, probably a male, was singing on the west side of the 
bridge on Armitage Road this morning at about 9:00. The bird seems to stay 
further north near the river this year. There is a path that goes in a ways and 
we were able to see the bird well but not before giving a large amount of 
blood. I have never seen mosquitos this bad!

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler

2013-05-23 Thread John and Fritzie Blizzard
This report is late but Kathy Strickland  I went to Armitage Rd. Sun. evening 
(where do the days go???). With her exc. hearing she was able to pinpoint the 
locality of the warbler  eventually found it almost in her face. We both had 
wonderful views as the setting sun really highlighted its colors as it sang its 
evening song to us. NO guidebook pictures do justice to that beautiful 
bird!!! 

Kathy was certain she heard 2 birds, one on each side of the river. We parked 
at the pulloff  walked a fair distance back the road then along the shore from 
the Rte. 89 side of the bridge. If you walk or drive back the road you'll get 
to a deep hole in the road where someone has made a new driveway to the right. 
At that point walk to the river shore  listen. Kathy found a dead limb on a 
live tree that overhung the water that the bird seemed to favor. She could hear 
another bird across the river. Skeeters were nasty  poison ivy is plentiful. 
While this Prothonotary wasn't our 1st ever, it was a thrilling find. The final 
bird of the day was a hummer zipping across the road in front of us.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler Wilson's Phalarope MNWR

Around noon we saw the Prothonotary Warbler carrying material into the same

Suzanne
Ithaca, NY 



There is a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER singing along Armitage Road in the normal spot 
this morning. 

Along the auto loop I had the previously reported female WILSON'S PHALAROPE at 
Benning Marsh and another bird at the very north end of the main pool. This 
bird 
was distant and in the morning fog combined with a little distortion I struggle 
a bit with the ID but I believe it was a male WILSON'S PHALAROPE.

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler fledglings

2011-07-10 Thread Christopher Wood
As Jay already reported, Jeff Gerbracht and I found FOUR very recently
fledged baby Prothonotary Warblers on the north side of Armitage Road
yesterday morning. They were very cute. So cute, in fact, that I had
to upload some photos of them as well as some other highlights from
yesterday. See link below.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinicola/

I think Jay posted most of our highlights already, but we also saw a
single male Greater Scaup on the west side of Cayuga Lake just north
of the Lakeshore Winery.

As others have mentioned, the shorebird habitat at East Road / Towpath
is excellent. If I were to adopt Matt Young's crossbill cone crop
ratings to shorebird habitat, I would give it a 4.5. It looses half a
point, because birds are very distant and best viewed early in the
morning before the heat shimmer begins. There were over 500 peeps
including a very early Baird's Sandpiper, as well as Wilson's
Phalarope and Stilt Sandpiper.

Cheers,
Chris Wood

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler fledglings

2011-07-10 Thread david nicosia
Great photos!! Glad to see they are raising young there. 

On another note, why is it that we can't walk out on
the trail that goes from Towpath road to east road between both marshes. 
This is obviously a GREAT fall staging area for shorebirds
and we birders have to struggle to get views. Those of us with
expensive high-end scopes can do it to some extent but
what about all the others? Why does Montezuma NWR not
allow people to walk out on this trail that connects
East road to Towpath? I understand the idea of refuges
for wildlife and disturbances but I have been to other
places(Forsythe, Heislerville, NJ as examples) where 
the shorebirds literally walk around your feet totally unafraid. 
Also I would think that the more people that become interested
in shorebirds and birds in general the more conservation dollars
that are contributed. 

Right now, the way it is, you have to high end scopes to enjoy 
this shorebird spectacle. Those of us who do, I presume, already contribute a 
lot
to conservation. I know I do. Anyway, this place should be a 5 and not
a 4.5 only if they would allow birders access to that trail.
Sorry for the rant.

[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warblers AND Acadian Flycatcher, Armitage Rd

2011-06-02 Thread Dave Nutter
Today (Thursday 2 June) I went with Ann Mitchell to Armitage Rd, among other north basin locations. When we arrived mid-morning we found Bill Roberts standing within a few feet of where I'd seen a Prothonotary Warbler sing a couple days earlier, but he was not having any luck finding this life bird. Ann  I wandered west along the road and within a few minutes heard a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER singing to the north. It moved frequently and at times was right next to the road as it worked its way towards where we had parked, yet Bill did not see it, and after a few minutes it went quiet. After several minutes it began another bout of singing from another part of its territory, again moving several times,but eventually favoring the top of a broken stump about eye-level maybe 15 yards into the swamp, and this time Bill did get to see it. The Prothonotary Warbler from south of the road also sang, but less frequently and further away, and we did not see it. Ann and I also clearly heard a singing ACADIAN FLYCATCHER north of the road and a bit west of where the Prothonotary Warbler action was concentrated. Other birds heard, as Meena mentioned on a previous visit, included NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, AMERICAN REDSTART, YELLOW WARBLER, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, CERULEAN WARBLER, BROWN CREEPER, BALTIMORE ORIOLE, VEERY, EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE (Ann only), YELLOW-THROATED VIREO (Ann only), GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER, GRAY CATBIRD, WARBLING VIREO, SWAMP SPARROW... so this is a fun area, even if it takes awhile to track down a Prothonotary Warbler. We also checked out several other locations but found that wind and wind chill made birding challenging. At Tschache Pool we found 1 KILLDEER and 1 BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER. Other shorebirds eluded us.  There was a WILLOW FLYCATCHER singing next to the tower, and I noticed on another visit that it had a very yellow belly.The Wildlife Drive shorebird area was mostly dry and only had 2 KILLDEER, no other shorebirds. May's Point Pool had a handful of distant REDHEADS, two separate PIED-BILLED GREBES and a couple CEDAR WAXWINGS. At Martens Tract we walked an unmowed waist-high dike and learned that a MARSH WREN can sing from within 5 feet of you in grass next to a nest and still be invisible. At Carncross Rd the stubble field is drained, and we saw no shorebirds.At Morgan Rd after much trouble tracked down a VESPER SPARROW in a stubble field just past the hill along the road. We found 1 GREATER YELLOWLEGS by a wet area north of the DEC office, while to the south we saw 2 SPOTTED SANDPIPERS and 2 GREAT EGRETS, plus 1 MUTE SWAN among several TRUMPETER SWANS. One of the resident AMERICAN KESTRELS chased an Accipiter into a hedgerow. At Van Dyne Spoor Rd we saw and heard a couple of COMMON MOORHENS and several BLACK TERNS. East Rd had a single very distant GREAT EGRET. Most of these places also had GREAT BLUE HERONS, MALLARDS, CANADA GEESE, BARN /or TREE SWALLOWS, RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS, COMMON GRACKLES, OSPREY, BALD EAGLE, etc. I guess we need to wait for another wave of shorebirds to arrive, or at least another wave of calm to look for them. It seems a bit unfair that this cooler, less humid weather should also be so challenging for birding. We had a good time, but the wind was exhausting.--Dave Nutter

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warblers, Yellow-headed Blackbird

2011-05-30 Thread Jay McGowan
Tim spotted the Yellow-headed Blackbird out on the mudflat to the left of
the tower at Tschache, where it was sporadically visible among the many
stick and stumps. The shorebirds are still very impressive here, with 200+
Semipalmated Sandpipers, at least 20 RUDDY TURNSTONES, 20+ Black-bellied
Plovers and at least one AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, large numbers of Dunlin and
Semipalmated Plovers, and several Lesser Yellowlegs, Killdeer, Least
Sandpipers, and White-rumped Sandpipers. The wildlife drive was quiet except
for an ORCHARD ORIOLE singing from the right side near the photo blind.

One Red-headed Woodpecker was around at the Aurora woodlot, going into the
same cavity Perri and I found last week. I'm pretty sure they have either
eggs or chicks there. Last week I got a picture of one that seems to show a
brood patch.

Finally, one of the most intriguing discoveries of the day was seeing that
Larue St. Clair reported seeing 42 unidentified godwits from Tschache Pool
on Friday.  We talked with him briefly and he said it looked to be a mixed
flock of Marbled and Hudsonian, based on differences in size among birds in
the flock.  Not sure what to make of this report, but very interesting (and
not a little frustrating!)  I think with the habitat the way it is a lot of
good things could show up there this week.

I should add that we did observe the north-side male entering a cavity in a 
rotted stump about 30 ft. in from the road (and sing from the top of this 
snag), so they are definitely thinking about breeding -- of course it will take 
a prospecting female to make this happen.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Prothonotary Warblers

2011-05-30 Thread Alicia Plotkin
Hi,

 Prothonotaries were observed  photographed carrying food to 
peeping nestlings at a nest site in a cavity in a dead tree that arced 
over the Canal, just south of this same bridge, in the early 1990's.*  
They continued to nest there for two or three years, until the tree fell 
into the water one winter.  If they continued after that, I am not aware 
of anyone locating the nesting site.  Given that much of the land north 
of Armitage at this point is not real accessible (and not public land), 
perhaps they nested at last some other years since then, undetected by 
birders?  Seems like over the years there have continued to be 
occasional reports of Prothonotaries in the general area.

* Fred - didn't you photograph these birds???

 in a rotted stump about 30 ft. in from the road (and sing from the top 
 of this snag), so they are definitely /thinking/ about breeding -- of 
 course it will take a prospecting female to make this happen.

 Hi,
   Today at 11:00AM the Protonotarys were about 300 feet west of the
 bridge on the north side. At times they would come to within 15 feet of
 the road.
