[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods migrants

2017-05-04 Thread Brad Walker
New migrants today included Indigo Bunting near the powerline cut,
Chestnut-sided Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler and a MOURNING WARBLER
that sang several phrases near the powerline cut. I was not able to locate
it.

Also, on Tuesday I had the Great Horned Owl getting mobbed by American
Crows near the East Trail map. The trees are beginning to leaf out so it's
getting harder to see into its roosting area.

There were several flocks of warblers around Sapsucker Woods today.
Highlights included a LINCOLN'S SPARROW singing near the north side of the
building, a male BAY-BREASTED WARBLER at the Sherwood Platform and a
WILSON'S WARBLER just east of the Sherwood Platform.

To add to Brad's tally:  there were two Northern Parulas, both singing, on
the Wilson Trail North just west of the Sherwood Platform at about 9:15AM.
A Blackburnian Warbler also sang a few times further east on the Wilson
Trail, just beyond the footbridge.

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods migrants

2015-05-07 Thread Jay McGowan
All,
Livia I walked around Sapsucker Woods and back this morning from around
6:00 to 8:30. The Wilson Trail was quiet on the way out but had picked up
substantially by 8:00. Only completely new species we saw was a TENNESSEE
WARBLER foraging with two NASHVILLE WARBLERS in the flowering maples high
over the inner leg of the trail, viewed from along the pond by the feeder
blind. Other warblers here included BLACKBURNIAN, PALM, YELLOW,
YELLOW-RUMPED, BLACK-THROATED GREEN, BLACK-THROATED BLUE, AMERICAN
REDSTART, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, and OVENBIRD. A
PRAIRIE WARBLER sang once near the Filler Wetlands early and once by the
footbridge later, but we never saw it. An ORCHARD ORIOLE was singing
briefly from near Fuller Wetlands as well but quickly disappeared. No sign
of the Orange-crowned on the east side, but a MAGNOLIA WARBLER was singing
from the pine grove near the shelter.

LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS continue at the south end of the lake. Several
were on the red lighthouse jetty and on the lake last night and this
morning, and we counted seven in a gull feeding frenzy along the inlet near
Cass Park two nights ago:

2015-05-07 Thread Nancy Cusumano
I've been watching the gull feeding frenzy the last several evenings. They
are definitely catching something.
I drive that way every day and cannot recall this happening before and
especially not so many days in a row. Anyone care to speculate on what they
are feeding so frenzily on?

All those gulls must surely be a challenge to the rowers as they hover over
their heads while they row and stir up whatever the gulls are after.

Hi all,

There was a little bit of activity on the Wilson Trail North this morning.
I found a mixed species flock at the Sherwood Platform that had two
BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLERS, BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER, and HOODED WARBLER.
There was also a MOURNING WARBLER on the inner trail before the footbridge.
The bird perched out in the open for several minutes and I managed to get
some crappy photos with my phone.

There were some new arrivals at Sapsucker Woods this morning, the most
notable being: OVENBIRD singing along the west side of Sapsucker Woods
Road, a BLUE-HEADED VIREO singing in the same location, GRAY CATBIRD on the
Wilson Trail North, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT singing along the powerline cut
near the Fuller Wetlands, YELLOW WARBLER near the eastern powerline cut,
several singing EASTERN TOWHEES and HOUSE WRENS, and , although not a new

Hi all,

There wasn't too much action on the Wilson Trail North today, but the
Sherwood Platform did have a singing/calling BROWN THRASHER and a
cooperative BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER foraging in the willows at eye level.

Slightly further west on the path was a group of three handsome
YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS.

The/A large group of RUSTY BLACKBIRDS was also present again just south of
the building, but they seem to be moving around a bit.

  I had a little flock this morning along Sapsucker Woods Road near the
Frog Barn (91 Sapsucker Woods Road) with Warbling, Philadelphia, and
Red-eyed vireos, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and a few warblers (Magnolia,
Blackpoll, Black-throated Green).

  There was a (the?) Prairie Warbler along the north side of the Lab of
Ornithology today a little before noon, foraging very low in small willows
and goldenrod. This is where I saw one on 22 August - I don't know what
would be more remarkable, that the same bird still is in the area, or that
two different individuals would pass in front of my office window in a
single season.

[cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods migrants

2011-09-29 Thread Nicholas Sly
I ran into several large mixed flocks before and after work in
Sapsucker Woods today. This morning, the first flock was south of the
pond on Wilson Trail. Most of the 10+ warblers were two far and
obscured in the canopy, but I picked out one Blackburnian. Near the
intersection of Wilson and Severinghaus trails there was a cluster of
4+ Catharus thrushes, but I only identified 2 as Swainson's before
they moved off into the forest away from me. I found a much bigger
mixed flock along the north end of Wilson Trail in the flooded forest
between the trail and the building. Highlights from this flock:

Blue-headed Vireo -  2
Nashville Warbler -  1
Magnolia Warbler -  3
Chestnut-sided Warbler -  1
Blackpoll Warbler -  5
Black-throated Green Warbler -  1

From 5 to 5:30pm, there was a very active mixed flock at the north end
of the Podell Boardwalk. Highlights:

Eastern Phoebe - 1
Blue-headed Vireo -  2
Red-eyed Vireo -  3
Swainson's Thrush - 1
Northern Parula -  1
Magnolia Warbler -  3
Bay-breasted Warbler -  1
Blackburnian Warbler -  1
Chestnut-sided Warbler -  2
Blackpoll Warbler -  2
Yellow-rumped Warbler -  2
Black-throated Green Warbler -  6


Good birding,
