Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lapland Longspur

2015-02-01 Thread Diane Morton
100s of Horned Larks and Snow Buntings and at least 2 Lapland Longspurs in
this field at 10:20 am today. A red- tailed hawk occasionally comes by and
scatters all these birds and the 100 or so crows. But the birds come back.

 This field NW of Ledyard Rd  Dixon Rd (Town of Ledyard, Cayuga County)
 had exposed corn among stubble close to Ledyard Rd, and scores of HORNED
 LARKS were easy to see. We initially saw the LAPLAND LONGSPUR with a few of
 the larks on the road shoulder, but when they moved north into the field to
 join the other larks, we did not spend enough time to refind it. With more
 patience and less blowing snow I think it could have been found. Farther NW
 in that same field, west of some power lines and north of a low rise, we
 saw about 20 SNOW BUNTINGS flying up briefly, perhaps part of a larger
 group. Again, with less wind and more patience they might be refound.

[cayugabirds-l] Lapland Longspur/ Pheasant

2015-01-31 Thread Donna Scott
LAPLAND LONGSPUR continues NW of Dixon  Ledyard Rds. 
West of NY Rt 34B. 
Was difficult to locate among the many HORNED LARKS  lesser #s of SNOW 
BUNTINGS. I finally saw it: it came onto road w a few H LARKS  I got a great 
look in scope for about 2 minutes, then they flew into the field again. 

Also, RING NECKED PHEASANT male digging in snow in wheat stubble on Dixon Rd 
north of Ledyard Rd. near abandoned large old house way back from road.
 This is 2nd Pheasant i have seen in this area  the other (female) was also 
near an abandoned house, on Rafferty Rd.  Houses both w windows gone. Wonder if 
they go inside for shelter? They are probably pheasants that have been released 
for hunting

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lapland Longspur/ Pheasant

2015-01-31 Thread Jody W Enck
Re the pheasant sighting...
DEC only releases male pheasants in that part of the state as natural 
reproduction of pheasants does occur here.  Hence, females are not legal game 
around central New York.
So, theoretically at least, any female in Cayuga County should be a naturally 
hatched bird.  Of course, individual who train dogs or who operate licensed 
shooting preserves could release hen pheasants.

Pheasants were really common on our farm in southcentral PA when I was growing 
up.  I love to see them.

[cayugabirds-l] Lapland Longspur

2013-01-19 Thread bluewing
Bill Howard and I relocated the Lapland Longspur that was reported yesterday by 
Jeff Gerbracht.  The bird was on Daisy Hollow Road this morning at the Cornell 
Farms.  We finally spotted the bird at 11:00 AM.  The longspur was in with 
dozens of Horned Larks and at least one Snow Bunting.  As expected, the birds 
were feeding in the manure spreads that run perpendicular to the road.

Patrick reported a Merlin in the area but we dipped on this species.

Good birding,
