[cayugabirds-l] Wood duck family (OOB?)

Hi, Was traveling between Interlaken and Lodi on Rte 96-A when a wood duck family scurried across the highway, the tiny ducklings strung so close together behind their mother that momentarily it looked like a strange long-tailed wood duck! Traffic on both sides hit the brakes and the

2010-05-08 Thread Matthew Medler
I spent a bit of time late this morning (8 May 2010) walking around the pond at Sapsucker Woods. Things generally seemed quite birdy, but in looking at my notes, I guess I didn't really see that many birds that would be deemed migrants. I saw/heard a total of ten species of warblers, with

I birded behind my house in Groton today. I saw or heard nine different warblers- highlights being a PARULA and BLACK-THROATED BlUE. Lots of YELLOW- RUMPS. I also saw a ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK, and 2 male BOBOLINKS. A VEERY was calling, but I didn't see him. Plus, I flushed out a HORNED LARK.

This morning, I made my first visit to the Hawthorn Orchard this spring. I was there from about 6:30am to 9:30am. Except for fresh footprints from one or two other persons, there were no people birding this Hawthorn Orchard this morning. It was a little drizzly early and it was certainly muddy

Hi all, I spent from 7 am until around 2 pm at home today (Saturday) to see how many species of birds I could see or hear from our property. Several times, I decided nothing else was going to show up and started to head out toward the car to do errands only to hear something new singing!

I visited Shindagin Hollow between 9 and 10 this morning. Not wanting to get caught in a shower and needing to get myself to an appointment on time, I stuck to the road. I didn't expect to find much, but there were lots of birds singing.The highlight for me was a CANADA WARBLER singing right

As others have reported, birds seem to be moving through in good numbers today. This morning, there were MAGNOLIA WARBLER, NASHVILLE WARBLER, and COMMON YELLOWTHROAT singing in the back yard and 2 WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS. In the afternoon, just as the first gusty storm was hitting, there were 10

Cayugabirders, Dr. Winkler's Cornell ornithology class took an end-of-the-semester field trip to Montezuma NWR today. We stopped at Myers Point around 7:30 and saw hundreds of swallows (all sp. except Purple Martin - primarily Bank and Barn Swallows) and a few terns - a migrant flock heading

Hi All, I led a trip to the Roy Park Preserve this morning for a Spring Ornithology local trip. This was basically a warbler trip. The first one we encountered was a male Prairie Warbler. He showed himself and sang for us. We saw a Canada Warbler singing from the bottom of the gorge

Susan Barr and I headed out on Wilson Trail at 6:30 this morning then over to the East Trail, with lots of low-lying mist, grey clouds and drizzle. Despite the less-than-ideal conditions we saw 10 species warblers, including CHESTNUT-SIDED, MAGNOLIA, BLACK-THROATED GREEN, BLACK AND WHITE and
