2019-03-22 Thread Mike Powers
Earlier this week Jay McGowan posted information about a male Eurasian Wigeon that was reported from the Queen Catharine Marsh between Watkins Glen and Montour Falls (thanks, Jay!). I made a trip along Rock Cabin Road (which runs along the west side of the marsh) Thursday evening and found the

Thanks to all the people who responded to my query. Your ideas sure gave some food for thought. I looked out this afternoon at the Cedar and it was covered in birds! It looked like a birdy Christmas tree. I counted 25 House Finches on the side that I could see. There were many more birds

[cayugabirds-l] Update on Next Week's Potential Migration "Surge"

2018-04-25 Thread David Nicosia
All, Looking at the three most reliable medium range models, the GFS, European and Canadian models, we continue to see a large high pressure system setting up over the southeast U.S Monday night. This high extends from the surface up through up through 10,000 feet and with its clockwise flow,

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Update on Weather and front

2018-04-14 Thread david nicosia
Well, the front set up farther north than expected and so did the heavier precipitation today. So we had a shallow front across central NY today. The surface front was in far northern PA and the front at 5000 feet (roughly) was actually across Lake Ontario. So north of this in Canada was the

[cayugabirds-l] Update on Weather and front

2018-04-13 Thread David Nicosia
Last night there was massive migration in the eastern U.S that stopped in northern NY state where there was a rather diffuse front. Not sure if there will be any significant concentration of migrants. This morning as of this writing the front at the surface is across the northern counties of PA

2017-07-02 Thread Dave Nutter
The nest I've been monitoring at a distance through a scope still seems to be doing okay. I don't check it every day because I don't want to call attention to it. It is very well hidden yet located near so much human activity that natural predation may be reduced, but I am concerned that

[cayugabirds-l] Update on 6 Merlin nests

2015-06-05 Thread John Confer
There are four Merlin nests in Ithaca. The N. Titus St nest, which I thought might have been abandoned, has had lots of recent activity. Perhaps this change in parental activity reflects a change in the nest status; maybe the eggs hatched. Please do not go off the sidewalk along N. Tutus and

The radar bird echoes are not as expansive as last night from NWS Binghamton's radar. It is noteworthy that radar sites tothe south where cloud ceilings are non-existent or much much higher have expansive bird echoes. Cloud ceilings are running between 500 and 1000 feet in much of central NY at
