There was an ibis there today at 3 pm—glossy, we thought.

I’m looking at a lone ibis in a open pool of water just past (west) of the

[cayugabirds-l] Ibis sp. at MNWR

2018-05-08 Thread John VanNiel
While conducting a Marsh Bird Survey on the Main Pool this evening, we had a 
fly over of a dark ibis. It was vocalizing, but that didn't seem to help narrow 
it down. I presume Glossy, but did not get a close look to confirm. JVN

Re: [cayugabirds-l] ibis on Armitage rd, Wayne Co

2017-11-05 Thread Ann Mitchell
I was there with Dave Nutter, Melissa and Wade Rowley, and Kevin McGann. Wade 
and I walked up closer, but the bird was still far away. We thought it might be 
a 1st winter bird. It had no white around it’s eye which was not red. I was 
told it could still be a WFIB because the red eye wouldn’t necessarily be 
seeable. I hope someone else gets to see it and ID it. Better lighting would be 
helpful!!

[cayugabirds-l] ibis on Armitage rd, Wayne Co

2017-11-05 Thread Kevin J. McGowan
This afternoon, Laura Stenzler and Ton Schat directed attention to a dark ibis 
they found north of Armitage Rd, west of rt 38 north of Monezuma. I was birding 
nearby, and headed right over. I found the bird, but unfortunately the rain 
started in earnest right then, and the lighting was poor. Also the bird was 
very actively foraging in the far north end of the east-most section of flooded 
farm fields and did not give good looks.


White-faced and Glossy ibis are about equally likely to occur here. The bird 
looked like a non-breeding-plumaged adult, with no white on the face to help 
with ID (broad white in White-faced, thin white stripes in Glossy). It was way 
too far away, and the light was way too dim for me to be able to see if there 
was any red in the face or not. I could not tell which species it was.


Unless someone else gets better looks or better photos, I have to put it down 
as "Plegadis sp." or "Glossy/White-faced Ibis."

[cayugabirds-l] Ibis sighting Saturday 22 July at Tschache Pool

2017-07-22 Thread Dave Nutter
This afternoon (Sat 22 July) Ferris Akel took video of a dark ibis flying over 
Tschache Pool at Montezuma NWR. Although Glossy Ibis is more common here than 
White-faced Ibis, both have been seen at Montezuma NWR in years past, and the 
video did not appear to me to be identifiable to species. This is the first 
ibis report in the area of which I am aware, so I am listing this as "Plegadis 
sp (Ibis)" in the 2017 Cayuga Lake Basin First Records unless/until someone 
gets a better look at such a bird in the area soon, and is able to see 
distinguishing field marks. 

Ferris Akel does a remarkable weekly live-stream birding program called Birding 
with Ferris, often at Montezuma NWR or Sapsucker Woods. Viewers discuss what is 
heard and seen, come to a consensus, and submit an eBird report. The relevant 
part of today's show can be seen at

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/106116822

The ibis can be seen for about 10 seconds starting at about 55:30 and again at 
about 56:25 through about 59:04. It's distant, high-magnification, shaky, and 
often out of focus, but it shows an all-dark wader with long trailing legs, a 
long thin neck, a bulbous head thicker than the neck, a long down-curved 
grayish bill, and a fast steady wingbeat interrupted a few times by a short 
glide, all of which is typical of either Glossy Ibis or White-faced Ibis.

[cayugabirds-l] Ibis video and photos

2013-10-20 Thread Christopher Wood
Hi everyone,

It's not very often that one has the chance to view White-faced and Glossy
Ibis side-by-side at very close proximity -- particularly in Upstate New
York.
I thought some people may enjoy some side-by-side video.

https://vimeo.com/77369914

The face pattern and eye color is certainly striking, but one can see a
wide range of differences between these two birds. I was struck by the
differences in color pattern to the wing coverts, which stood out strongly
when the birds are side-by-side but I expect may also be helpful on lone
birds. It was interesting to see how these colors changed, when the sun was
obscured by a cloud or the birds changed angles.  Perhaps the best single
image I have to compare these when the birds are a the same angle to the
light is here (also helpful because the heads are distracting us).
http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinicola/10392852153/

There are a few other still images up as well.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinicola/

It was great see so many people watching, studying, taking photos of two
great birds at Montezuma that were close enough for everyone to see and
enjoy.

Best wishes,
Chris Wood
