[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow picking up

2018-05-05 Thread Anne Marie Johnson
Things are picking up in Shindagin Hollow. A CANADA WARBLER is back on 
territory along the narrow, steep stretch of road leading down to the 
hollow, and the LOUISIANNA WATERTHRUSH is back at the intersection past the 
pond at the bottom of the hollow, near the small gorge with the bridge for 
the FLT. There were OVENBIRDS singing everywhere, and a good number of 
other warblers were singing as well. Seeing them, though, was a challenge 
at best, even with barely any leaves! I did manage to see a BLACKBURNIAN 
and a MAGNOLIA around where the FLT crosses the road at the bottom and a 
CHESTNUT-SIDED, along with another BLACKBURNIAN, at the Canada Warbler 
spot. Also, there appears to be a BROAD-WINGED HAWK nest at the Canada 
Warbler spot. Steve Fast mentioned nesting activity when I ran into him 
there on Tuesday. That day I flushed a Broad-winged from there, and this 
morning I heard one calling there. My checklist from this morning is below.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow FIELD TRIP, Saturday June 3, Cayuga Bird Club

2017-06-01 Thread Laura Stenzler
Hi everyone!

 I will be leading a field trip along Shindagin Hollow Rd., through Shindagin 
Hollow State Forest, on Saturday June 3 for the Cayuga Bird Club (but open to 
all!).  We will meet at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology parking lot to carpool 
at 7 am (I know, it's early.) and probably be done by 11.  We will first 
walk about a mile, then get into our cars to drive with many stops for the 
remainder of the trip.

   I just did a scouting trip (my ebird list is below) and it reminded me of a 
couple of things:

1) It is COLD in the morning, so dress appropriately and

2) We will mostly HEAR lots of birds, and if we are lucky, see a few.  It is a 
good opportunity to work on birding by ear!


See you there!

Laura

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow SF

2017-05-15 Thread Anne Marie Johnson

  
  
Although the weather was cold, dark, and windy, there were a
surprising number of singing warblers in Shindagin Hollow State
Forest this morning, along the road to the bottom and beyond. It was
my first trip in there this spring. My eBird list is below. I
believe many of the birds are breeders singing on territory.

I just spoke to a person at the Town of Caroline highway department and learned 
that Shindagin Hollow Rd. is now open. There were some trees down that had to 
be removed and they are now gone.

Bird on!

Starting at around 8:30 this morning, I drove the road to the
  bottom of Shindagin Hollow, getting out frequently along the way.
  It was pretty quiet except from numerous singing BLACK-THROATED
  BLUE and GREEN WARBLERS, but on the way down the hill , I found a
  BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER and a MAGNOLIA WARBLER along the edge of the
  road singing and foraging at eye level, and along the road at the
  bottom, I found a singing CANADA WARBLER that came close to the
  road for nice looks.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow in the evening

2015-07-26 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal

Yesterday late evening as there was no wind, I decided to try some recording in 
Shindagin Hollow. It was comparatively quiet, except for a couple of distant 
Hermit Thrushes,  one Wood Thrush, an Eastern Pewee, an American Goldfinch, a 
couple of hesitant American Robins, a Song Sparrow and a Swamp Sparrow.

I just got recording of some Swamp Sparrow song in between the planes that 
continuously fly overhead. And of course I got a bumble bee humming on the 
flowers as it flew around.


My home front catbird story: My catbird stopped singing for about three weeks 
in between so I thought either he might have got killed by car accident or a 
hawk or he must have found a new mate and disappeared with her as I still saw 
at least a catbird in the yard. But again recently from about a week or so he 
ha started singing. But he sings for a short time, that too an unhurried song 
but he is still there. So I was wondering why he stopped singing in  between, 
was he busy feeding and taking care of his young as they had fledged probably 
by that time? Any thoughts or anyone else has observed this?


I am also doing an inventory of all the insects, birds and plants in my yard. 
So I have been keeping  an eye on my dogbane or also known as Indian hemp plant 
Apocynum cannbinum. I found at least twenty species of insects including bees, 
moths, flies and butterflies feed on the flowers' nectar.  I found moths and 
butterflies take a long time to feed on these flowers and they visit the same 
flowers again and again after feeding on the next flowers for a few mintues. 
While bees and flies spend very short time. I was wondering why. I have some 
theories but need to get more data. Yesterday there was a beautiful Sesidae 
moth - Peachteree Borer, which mimic wasps feeding on these flowers and spent 
lot of time on the same flower head and visiting same flowers again and again. 
I have uploaded the  video if anyone is interested. I had seen this moth four 
days ago and I mentioned it to Sue, her immediate reaction was did you kill it 
or not as it is supposed to be detrimental to the peach tree. But gleefully 
told her I did not and it was the fourth day the insect has been hanging around 
the same plant!.

prefer them to the masses of white trilliums which should be out in force by 
this weekend.  Bird news: other than about 10 OVENBIRDS, I found no other 
warblers there.  And most activity took place before 0830; very quiet after.  
The only bird I haven't seen mentioned  yet was a singing YELLOW-THROATED 
VIREO.  BROAD-WING back on territory.  First VEERY(quiet) seen.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow this morning

2014-05-11 Thread Anne Marie Johnson
Starting at 8:00 this morning, I worked my way along Shindagin Hollow Road 
in my car, stopping to get out frequently. I walked about halfway down the 
steep, curvy descent. I walked from just past the marsh/beaver pond at the 
bottom to where the Finger Lakes Trail crosses the road and up the FLT to 
the right for a short distance. There were lots of singing birds the whole 
way, but most of the activity was along the bottom of the hollow near where 
the FLT crosses. The marsh was surprisingly quiet compared to a few days 
ago, and amazingly I saw or heard no Yellow-rumped Warblers or Yellow 
Warblers in my 2 hours there. Here are my highlights:


Broad-winged Hawk--saw 1 several times above and along upper portion of 
steep descent

Wood Thrush--heard only
Hermit Thrush--heard, glimpsed
Yellow-throated Vireo
Least Flycatcher--heard only
Baltimore Oriole

Black-throated Green
Black-throated Blue
Ovenbird--heard everywhere but never saw
Redstart
Common Yellowthroat
Canada Warbler
Northern Waterthrush--heard only
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Blackburnian Warbler--singing what I was sure was the Nashville Warbler 
song until I finally found him

Magnolia Warbler
Blue-winged Warbler

Probably also heard a Nashville Warbler and a Louisiana Waterthrush, but 
only heard once or twice.

There's still some ice on the road at the bottom of Shindagin Hollow, but it's 
navigable.
Unlooked for highlight was listening to a singing HERMIT THRUSH in the cool 
early morning fog.
Also 2 singing BLUE-HEADED VIREOS.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow

2013-05-19 Thread Anne Marie Johnson
There was a nice mix of warblers along Shindagin Hollow Road this morning. 
Highlights included a MOURNING WARBLER and a HOODED WARBLER singing near 
the first parking area on the left (coming from Central Chapel Road in 
Caroline, after first big hill, where small wood road goes off to the 
right). Further down the road toward the base of the hollow, along the 
narrow, curvy stretch, I heard two CANADA WARBLERS. One was very 
cooperative, perching on branches over the road to sing. Down in the 
hollow, near the Finger Lakes Trail bridge across the stream, I heard and 
saw a TENNESSEE WARBLER. There were several BALTIMORE ORIOLES in this area 
as well.


Other highlights along the way, mostly heard only:

Ovenbird
Common Yellowthroat
Yellow Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Blackburnian Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Northern Waterthrush
Louisiana Waterthrush
American Redstart
Ruffed Grouse (drumming in two places)
Ruby-throated Hummingbird

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow

2012-07-04 Thread Susan Fast
Susie  I walked down Shindagin Hollow Road this morning.  I said I hadn’t
encountered  a broad-winged hawk there yet this year, so be on the lookout.
In the area of the balsam fir forest, we heard 2 RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS, one
calling suddenly from the firs, the other answering from the ridge to the
west.  I saw a bird soaring overhead, and assumed it to be one of the
callers.  But it was an adult BROAD-WINGED HAWK; the other hawks were
yelling at it.

Then Susie mentioned she had never heard a cuckoo down there—and within
minutes a BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO sang from the woods.  To complement that, a
YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO sang shortly after that about ¼ mile away.  CANADA
WARBLERS (4) were singing, as were 2 HERMIT THRUSHES.  Bugs were not bad.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow SF

2012-03-09 Thread Susan Fast
We two walked thru Shindagin Hollow SF this morning.  Birds included a flock
of 60 (actual count) TURKEYS in a field at the intersection of Shindagin
Hollow and Braley Hill Rds.  At the fir plantation, a RED-SHOULDERED HAWK
circled and called repeatedly.  It was answered by another from the
ridgetop.  Seems early.  Laura usually reports hers before we see them in
the Hollow.  A BLUE JAY did a good imitation of the call.  I wonder if this
is the same jay that does an excellent broad-winged hawk imitation later in
the season?

The ½” of new snow on the road provided a good base for mammal
tracks—chipmunk, both squirrels, deer, fox, male and female mink, and female
fisher.  Yes, Virginia, there are fishers in central NY.  (Sorry Melissa,
but the snow melted around the tracks before we could get back to your
place).

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow -- Wednesday morning

2010-05-19 Thread Sydney F Penner
After a long day of grading papers yesterday, I decided to spend the 
morning today walking a good chunk of the Finger Lakes Trail in 
Shindagin Hollow. I didn't find any mixed warbler flocks, but there were 
lots of rewarding birds nonetheless. Some highlights with a complete 
eBird list at the bottom:


Steve Fast reported a NORTHERN GOSHAWK a few days ago. I suspect it may 
still be around. I didn't see the bird well enough to make a visual ID, 
but heard it repeatedly. It definitely didn't sound like a Cooper's Hawk 
(I've had a pair of those nesting close to our house for a few years 
now, so I know their calls quite well), but it did sound very much like 
recordings of Goshawk that I listened to so I'm pretty sure of the ID.


I got one of my best CANADA WARBLER encounters ever. It was a very 
brash, actively singing bird in the larch stand between the pine trees 
downed by an ice storm a few years back. To my eye it had a shorter 
necklace than usual.


By Shindagin Hollow Rd. there were at least three CUCKOOS: 2 
YELLOW-BILLED and 1 BLACK-BILLED. I watched the Black-billed Cuckoo 
feeding in the maple trees along the road for a while. In the same area 
I also saw my first conclusively identified WILLOW FLYCATCHER of the year.


One of my favourite moments was when I was standing in the hemlock grove 
by the Shindagin Lean-To. I had a BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER above me with 
LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH and WINTER WREN singing along the rushing stream 
down below.


Why would I ever want to grade papers again?

Sydney Penner

43 N. Landon Rd.
Ithaca, NY 14850

Location: Shindagin Hollow
Observation date: 5/19/10
Number of species: 41

Northern Goshawk 1 On the FLT at the ridge looking over Shindagin 
Hollow Rd. Not seen well enough to make confident visual ID, but heard calling 
repeatedly. Pitch (higher) and tone were markedly different from Cooper's Hawks 
that I've heard. Matches recordings of Goshawk that I listened to well. It's 
perhaps also worth noting that Steve Fast recently reported seeing a N. Goshawk 
in Shindagin Hollow.
Yellow-billed Cuckoo 2 Calling repeatedly near Shindagin Hollow Rd.
Black-billed Cuckoo 1 Observed it feeding in maple trees along 
Shindagin Hollow Rd.
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 3
Northern Flicker (Yellow-shafted) 1
Pileated Woodpecker 1
Eastern Wood-Pewee 2
Willow Flycatcher 1 Along Shindagin Hollow Rd. Mostly quiet but gave 
distinctive call a few times.
Least Flycatcher 2
Great Crested Flycatcher 1
Yellow-throated Vireo 2
Warbling Vireo 1
Red-eyed Vireo 8
Blue Jay 2
American Crow 3
Black-capped Chickadee 3
Red-breasted Nuthatch 1
White-breasted Nuthatch 1
Winter Wren 3 Not singing as much as a few weeks ago but still heard a 
few songs. Sang partial songs several times.
Veery 3 Lots of calling; some singing.
Hermit Thrush 2 Singing.
Wood Thrush 5 Singing.
American Robin 6
Gray Catbird 2
Yellow Warbler 2
Chestnut-sided Warbler 3 In clearing on Shindagin Hollow Rd.
Black-throated Blue Warbler 5
Black-throated Green Warbler 6
Blackburnian Warbler 2 Found one each singing in two different hemlock 
stands.
Black-and-white Warbler 3
American Redstart 4
Ovenbird 20 Observed more squabbling and chasing than I usually see, 
accompanied by high-pitched, squeaky calls.
Louisiana Waterthrush 2 Singing by the brook along FLT east of 
Shindagin Hollow Rd.
Common Yellowthroat 3
Hooded Warbler 2 In maple stand at top of ridge west of Shindagin 
Hollow Rd.
Canada Warbler 1 Actively singing (and very bold, allowing close 
approach) in larch stand between the pine stands downed in ice storm.
Song Sparrow 3
Dark-eyed Junco (Slate-colored) 4
Red-winged Blackbird 4
Baltimore Oriole 5 All in clearing along Shindagin Hollow Rd.

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow area Clay-colored Sparrow

2010-05-16 Thread Matthew Medler

Hi All,

I had a great morning of sound recording and birding in the Shindagin 
Hollow area this morning (16 May 2010).  After the wind started to pick 
up around 9:30, I decided to explore a bit, and eventually stopped at a 
fairly large shrubland area along Braley Hill Road.  As soon as I got 
out of the car, I noticed a sound that I did not immediately 
recognize--a fast-paced series of even buzzy notes.  Unfortunately, the 
bird went quiet before I could record it at all or track it down.  But, 
I did hear it long enough to realize what it was, based on the quality 
of the song--a singing CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.  I have very little field 
experience with this species, but am used to hearing recordings of it in 
which the bird sings rather slow, two-noted songs like this:


http://macaulaylibrary.org/audio/42229

The bird I heard, though, was giving faster, 4 or 5 noted songs like this:

http://macaulaylibrary.org/audio/42235

This bird was clearly in the Susquehanna River drainage, rather than in 
the Cayuga Lake Basin, but I thought that some might be interested in 
trying to take a look for it.  I can't figure out the exact coordinates 
of the spot, but it was a large shrubland area on the west side of 
Braley Hill Road, about two miles north of the junction with Pleasant 
Valley Road.


I spent most of my morning along Bald Hill School Road, which was very 
birdy.  And the overall diversity of warblers that I encountered in my 
wanderings was fairly impressive:


Tennessee
Northern Parula
Chestnut-sided
Black-throated Blue
Yellow-rumped
Black-throated Green
Blackburnian
Pine
Prairie
American Redstart
Ovenbird
Louisiana Waterthrush (Leonard Rd.)
Mourning Warbler (2)
Common Yellowthroat
Hooded Warbler (several)
Canada Warbler (1)

With the exception of the first two, I believe that all of the others 
breed in the area, along with a few additional species.


Other birds of interest to me were my first singing EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE 
of the year, many VEERY, SCARLET TANAGERS and ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAKS, 
and a briefly singing BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO.


Good birding,
Matt Medler
Ithaca

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow, Sat. 5/15/10

2010-05-15 Thread Susan Fast
I did a walk through Shindagin Hollow this morning.  It was probably one of
the best walks I've had there in years, birdwise, especially for warblers.
Soon after starting I encountered a large feeding flock of the little guys.
I stood, literally, in one spot on the road and identified 13 species in
about 10 minutes. This included 3 BAY-BREASTED in a single field of view.
I'm sure I missed some.  For the day, I had 18 warbler species, including 7
singing CANADA WARBLERS.

 

Other stuff included 3 WINTER WRENS, 2 singing YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOOS, 3
LEAST FLYCATCHERS, 1 WOOD-PEWEE, 1 TRAILL'S FLYCATCHER, and the bird that
really got me excited, a N. GOSHAWK circling low.  It's been at least 10
years since I've seen this species down there at this time of the year.  The
last time I encountered them, they had a nest.  I sure hope they have
returned.

about 8:45 I drove out and then went up Braley Road to the first

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow - Thursday morning

2010-04-22 Thread Sydney F Penner
I had struck out on them so far this year, but within ten minutes of 
arriving in Shindagin Hollow this morning I heard five WINTER WRENS and 
got great views of one of them. I also heard my first WOOD THRUSH of the 
year. There were a number of BLUE-HEADED VIREOS around, but I didn't 
find any warblers.

Interesting, I observed that it seems suddenly for every Shindagin Hollow has 
become THE place to go to bird :-)


It was always good for  birds and also for rare butterflies!

It's like fishing. When you anchor your boat everybody motors on over to see 
what you're catching.
I'm enjoying learning more about Steve Fast's backyard. :)

[cayugabirds-l] Shindagin Hollow = B.-h. vireos

2010-04-11 Thread Susan Fast
On a walk along Shindagin Hollow Rd. this morning, I met with 4 BLUE-HEADED
VIREOS.  The RED-SHOULDERED HAWK is back, as are 4 BROWN CREEPERS, and 6
RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS.  YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS abound.  2 RAVENS were
seen together, and we saw 2 (the same?) in the field across from our house
this afternoon.  I am supposing that either the nestlings are large enough
to be left alone for a while, or the nest failed.
