[cayugabirds-l] Wood Thrush

2019-05-06 Thread Whitings
Hi All, We had a Wood Thrush singing its heart out tonight here in the village of Skaneateles. That is a new yard bird. Must be all the trees we have planted make things a bit more attractive even if It is only a pit stop. On the other hand the Red-breasted Nuthatch pair continues in our yard.

[cayugabirds-l] Radar: migration + rain = fallout?

2019-05-06 Thread Dave Nutter
I see, as I get ready for work well before dawn, that the radar shows both migration, and in parts of the region, light rain which can cause migrants to quit migrating when they hit it. Maybe there will be some migrant fall out. - - Dave Nutter -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
