We took a trip up the lake this PM to try and see the bird. We went to
the East side of the lake first - actually went down the private drive
that Dave told us about ( called for permission first). It was late
afternoon and the glare and shimmer was very bad. Could see birds on
Thanks to all the feedback and comments. Since the bird was perched rather
than a flyover, seems like the best fit is a Eastern Screech Owl making (to
me) an unusual version of its call.

I also saw the booby (finally) late this evening from Lower Lake Road — very
distant but in nice evening sun. It stayed lying down on buoy 49 for the 30
minutes I watched it, identifiable by the dark, horizontal body, contrasting
white belly sometimes visible, and long pointed bill and pale
Folks - a question about the Booby. Is it more easily seen from Lower
Lake Rd. near Seneca Falls (west side of lake) or from the village of
Cayuga (east side of lake).
Or perhaps it depends on the bird's mood? (smile)
Thanks for the help.

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's
bird call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird
heard last night.
The call was a long (1-2 s) descending *clear* whistle (not a whinny like a
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a
The GPS coordinates I cited, 42.7,-76.72518, are of a green channel marker

(aka Townline Rd) in the NW corner of Springport and in the right direction
from Wolffy's near the south end of Lower Lake Rd near the SE

I also last night heard a sound right outside of my bedroom window that I
didn’t recognize at first. But, a bit later from the same tree came the more
typical screech owl whinny, so am pretty sure it was the same bird. --Marty
I saw it from lower lake rd in afternoon. Very distant. Looks closer from
townline road at least from my scope view. Lighting is good from lower
lake rd in afternoon. Morning lighting would be tough from lower lake rd.

I’ll defer to the experts but would not rule out Screech-owl. I’ve heard that
also: clear descending rather than whinny descending but followed by other EASO
distinct sounds, so concluded it was the same bird. I’ve been hearing EASO loud
whinnies just in the last couple of weeks, first time

Night before last, I heard several ascending whistle calls, right outside my
door. The local Barred Owls responded with typical hooting, so I think the
whistles were (still begging?) calls from their immature youngsters.
