[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds

2020-10-31 Thread Carol Keeler
I got a rarity to my yard this morning- a fox sparrow!  I’m still getting one 
White Throat.  I have been getting a few Pine Siskins.  No Evening Grosbeaks 
yet.  I’m lucky to get any birds here with the roofers here many days.  They 
finished yesterday so maybe those Grosbeaks will finally show up.  I’m pleased 
to get the Fox Sparrow.

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds

2018-04-20 Thread Geo Kloppel
West Danby enjoyed a bright sunrise. There was hardly a cloud in the sky for a 
short period this morning. I had Fox Sparrows singing from all directions, a 
couple of Hermit Thrushes drinking or bathing or foraging at the pond outlet, 
Wood Ducks on the pond, a Brown Thrasher rummaging under the shrubs, c. 50 
Juncos at the feeders, a lone Pine Siskin, a few Golden-crowned Kinglets, a 
Phoebe, etcetera.

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds/hummers

2017-06-14 Thread Donna Lee Scott
Even tho I have cut back on the volume of bird seeds provided, I still have 
interesting birds here. I have seen both female & male HUMMINGBIRDS at their 
feeder, as well as a DOWNY WOODPECKER mother feeding a baby at the bark butter 
log. Regular customers are the many A GOLDFINCHES eating nyjer seed.
 I think the WHITE BREASTED NUTHATCH is feeding a baby both suet & sunflower 
seeds.
CATBIRDS enjoy suet too.

Also saw 2 BLUE JAY babies w/short tails interacting with parent birds in tree 
outside my porch.
BROWN THRASHERS active across road & a small hawk (Sharpie or Coopers) zoomed 
thru the yard after a bird that it missed catching.

Most mornings I hear 1 or 2 OSPREYS chirping down near the water! Lotsa 
GRACKLES both in yard & on beach.
Baby ducks include 6 COMMON MERGS & 4 MALLARDS.

& I still hear the 2 WOOD THRUSHES singing in woods along w/ the occasional A. 
REDSTART!

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2017-02-16 Thread Bard Prentiss
Hi Alll,
This morning I was visited by two quite special, to me, yard birds.  First a 
Brown Creeper appeared in a the tree near my feeders. it stayed in the yard for 
about 10 minutes. An hour or so later a Carolina Wren showed up.  It only 
stayed for a minute or so and didn't visit the suet feeders which were in use 
by E. Starlings. I'm hopeful it will return soon.

Best,
Bard

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds

2016-10-24 Thread W. Larry Hymes
Have had some interesting birds at our feeders recently.  We've had a 
CHIPPING SPARROW every day since Thursday.  Yesterday a first-winter 
male ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK stopped by briefly.  This morning there was 
a juvenile male RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD feeding on the ground with the 
other birds.  It disappeared when a COOPER'S HAWK flew in and took one 
of the mourning doves.  It hasn't returned.

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2016-05-22 Thread Dave Nutter
I made the most of being grounded today. When I went outside for gardening 
instructions, the first thing I heard was a vague warbler song from the mature 
spruce tree in the neighbors' yard. Forty-five minutes of procrastination 
yielded one second of view of a new bird for the cumulative yard list: a male 
CAPE MAY WARBLER, which was also new for this year for me in the Cayuga Lake 
Basin. Maybe I'll recognize its song now, though I still consider it vague. 
From time-to-time throughout the day I heard the singing again, and I stared at 
the tree for signs of movement. Five hours later (during which I was also 
somewhat productive) I was rewarded with an extended view of the bird. It 
crawls around the interior of the tree, neither at the very top, nor on the 
tips of branches, and it doesn't fly much or far, but it sure is beautiful.



As a bonus in the meantime I also heard a SCARLET TANAGER singing from the 
trees atop the cliff across the street.



After supper on the back porch, I suggested watching the spruce tree again in 
case the Cape May or some other warbler was still there. Laurie was only 
indoors briefly to get a jacket against the chill, but during that time, 7:30pm 
to be precise, a COMMON NIGHTHAWK flew over going somewhat erratically north 
east. It was high enough to be out of the shadow of West Hill, and it looked 
tan in the sunshine, with the white stripes near the wingtips easily visible 
through binoculars.

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds-Indigo Bunting, Barred Owl and others

2014-05-09 Thread bilbaker
For the second morning in a row there has been an Indigo Bunting at our
feeders here on South Rd. Other feeder birds include White-crowned
Sparrows,  at least 2 pairs of Purple Finches, and 3 pairs of Rose-breasted
GRosbeaks,  and I think another male hanging around.

For the first time this year we left windows open last night. I woke up at
about 2 am to far off rumbles of thunders and a pair of Barred Owls calling
from the other side of Old 76 Rd. They called on and off for 10 minutes or
so,  and then stopped as the thunders got louder

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2013-10-28 Thread Dave Nutter
Reviewing records for my yard I realized that in early years I'd been lax about including dates, that this year I'd made far too little effort there, and that there were some good candidates missing altogether. So late yesterday morning I spent some quality time in my yard. Not only did I add RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, a big gap on the cumulative list, but also ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER and BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER, plus eight other species that I should've ticked months ago. --Dave Nutter

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds

2013-09-14 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
Hi all,



Today I worked with Ngampit in the garden a whole lot.  Early morning, we had a 
Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak chinking away and a Blackpoll 
warbler, along with a group of Cedar waxwings which have spent most of the 
morning eating Yew berries (so hopefully they are cured of any cancer). Also an 
Eastern Wood Peewee had been calling incessantly whole day from one of my 
Norway Spruces!



In between we went to farmer's Market for some lunch, where I saw an Osprey 
flying overhead and a Northern Mockingbird in the area.



When the weather cleared I forgot to look up in the sky for the hawks as we 
were so engrossed with trimming plants and did not even check e-mails whole day 
until recently so missed any Broad-winged hawks that were flying overhead!

I looked out the window at my feeders at about 2:15 to find a Sharp-shinned

It sat for almost 30 seconds then noticed my movement and flew up into the

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds - Snow Geese and Redpolls

2013-03-13 Thread bilbaker
While I did not notice any geese going overhead last weekend here in
Caroline Center last weekend (though I was outside very little) I did have
flocks of Snow Geese go over several times today,  as well as a Raven
circling in a northerly direction, though it is certainly possible that was
one of the local birds.

With all of the migration excitement I haven't noticed mentioned Redpolls
in a while. We still have a flock of better than 100 here.

Robins, American Goldfinches, a bunch of Red-eyed Vireos, and more things I 
didn't know were there until all the birds suddenly flushed and flew off. I 
couldn't find what flushed them.


This afternoon on the rail trail in Dryden from East Lake Rd to the lake, 
we found 3 Green Herons foraging in the open, 2 kingfishers, two 
female/juvenile Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Song 
Sparrows, and a large group of Cedar Waxwings flycatching. (There have been 
Green Herons foraging in the open on the pond in Sapsucker Woods this week 
too.) The lake itself, viewed from the south end, only held a group of 
Canada Geese. The water level of the little pool across the trail from the 
lake was too high for shorebirds.


On Schutt Rd., a Common Raven flew up from a farm field.

In the wetland along Rt. 38 between Keith Lane and the center of Dryden, we 
saw three Wood Ducks on a log. I was hoping the water level here might be 
low enough for shorebirds, but it's not.

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2011-05-28 Thread Geo Kloppel
My neighborhood 'rain crows' - both Black-billed and Yellow-billed  
Cuckoos - have really been living up to their nickname! Along with  
all the rain, hailstones have rattled the roof for several days  
running. And they're likely to do it again today, if the Cuckoos are  
to be believed.  It's amazing to sit under shelter and think of all  
the birds out in these storms, like the female Hooded Warbler sitting  
tight on on her knee-high nest, which now contains 4 little eggs of  
ivory wreathed in red, while all around her lightning flashes and the  
ground is pelted by hailstones as big as hickory nuts!

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2011-05-17 Thread Geo Kloppel
My warbler list looks about the same as a couple of days ago, but  
there are certainly more TENNESSEE WARBLERS in the mix now! I met  
with half a dozen HOODED WARBLERS, including two females who flashed  
their white tail spots and gave warning notes from their skulking  
places in the low undergrowth. I came upon one flowering apple tree  
in which about  eight INDIGO BUNTINGS (males and females together)  
were quietly foraging. There were lots of noisy Orioles about, and  
Black-billed Cuckoos called almost simultaneously from several  
directions.


When I was wet enough I retreated. There are no Collegetown Bagel  
outlets here, but I'd found a couple of morels in the orchard, so  
when I got home I sauteed them in butter and put them between rye  
with just a thin slice of Lorraine cheese.

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds: Swainson's Thrush, S.Tanager, Magnolia Warbler

2011-05-14 Thread Nari Mistry
This evening, a Swainson's Thrush made a surprise appearance foraging on 
the ground outside our dining room window during dinner.


On Friday a Scarlet Tanager showed up and added its song to that of our 
resident B.Orioles (two males) RBGrosbeaks (2 males +2 females) 
C.Yellowthroat, H.Wrens, Finches, etc. Have not seen YRumped warblers 
for a few days.
Late afternoon yesterday a Magnolia Warbler was foraging behind the 
shed, giving us good looks.

Wow. I was hoping that with all the activity in nearby Sapsucker Woods, I would 
get at least a trickle of warblers in my yard -- but no. A few migrants have 
stopped by, including a che-beking LEAST FLYCATCHER, briefly singing SCARLET 
TANAGER  and RED-EYED VIREO, and 2 WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS under the feeder -- 
but nary a warbler. Oh, and a flock of 12 PINE SISKINS after none for several

Just before sunset I added a MAGNOLIA WARBLER. Hoping for more  
warblers ahead, as many of the fruit trees are just now coming into  
flower. Expecting Cuckoos any day now!  Might get one tonight for the  
price of going outside to listen (if only the toads would shut up!  -  
their annual pool party has been roaring for days)

[cayugabirds-l] yard birds

2011-04-24 Thread Geo Kloppel
Around my yard this morning: lots of gobbling tom Turkeys, Ruffed  
Grouse thumping from various directions, several Hermit Thrushes,  
numerous Ruby-crowned Kinglets, one Blue-headed Vireo, one Black and  
White Warbler, one Louisiana Waterthrush, several Field Sparrows, at  
least six Fox Sparrows (peaking here now!), numerous Eastern Towhees,  
a few Purple Finches...


Several days ago all my feeder birds vanished for a few minutes while  
an immature Cooper's Hawk ambushed the deserted feeders.


For five minutes I watched a pair (!) of Cowbirds attend very  
purposefully to the movements of the Phoebes nesting under my eaves.  
I thought this kind of scouting was just the responsibility of the  
female Cowbird, but apparently not. Maybe female scouting just looks  
irresistibly attractive to the male?


A Red-bellied Woodpecker threesome made quite a commotion in the big  
maple tree over my porch.

[cayugabirds-l] Yard Birds: Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, Ruffed Grouse

2010-04-08 Thread shannon
I have had some fun new yard birds this week.
 
About a half an hour ago, I heard a Louisianna Waterthrush in the creek across 
the road.  I believe I heard it a few days ago as well, but was able to hear it 
better and confirm it this morning.
 
There has also been a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker drumming in the woods in my back 
yard for the past 4 days.

I have seen a Ruffed Grouse on two occasions and just heard it again this 
morning.
 
Cheers,

Shannon Haskins

[cayugabirds-l] Yard birds, 3/27/10

2010-03-28 Thread Susan Fast
On Saturday, Susie  I had brief yard visits from our first-of-year
YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER and NORTHERN SHRIKE.  The latter was a bit
surprising as I had thought they had all gone north.  While working, I
watched the sky in the afternoon, but saw only a few locals.  Apparently Ken
and Derby Hill had a good day, though.
