[cayugabirds-l] Michigan Hollow

2019-04-29 Thread Geo Kloppel
The marsh in Michigan Hollow (Town Of Danby, not Spencer) was covered in a thin 
skin of ice this morning, before the sun hit it.  An American Bittern was 
pumping loudly. I also heard a single song from a Pied-billed Grebe, and 
watched a male Harrier surveying his territory. Lots of Wood Ducks, Mallards 
and Canada Geese, a pair of Hooded Mergansers, plenty of Swamp Sparrows, 
etcetera. No rails this morning, though I had Virginia Rails there a few days 
ago.

-Geo

In case anyone is puzzled, this is _not_ the North Spencer Marsh down in Tioga 
County, it's the big sedge marsh at the _north_ end of Michigan Hollow, 
centered about 2.5 miles south of the Danby Town Hall. In its present form it's 
a mile-long beaver impoundment. The dam is about 1/4 mile upstream from the FLT 
bridge at "Diane's Crossing", familiar to many as the starting point for the 
Abbott Loop Trail.

Turns out it's navigable all the way north to the edge of the pine swamps, 
about one mile above the beaver dam. I've found a few Wood Ducks and Mallards, 
but no Grebes yet. Watched a Green Heron catch and devour a frog, and flushed a 
probable Red-shoulder near the north end.

Turning my 14' kayak around up here will be tight...

Paddling in Michigan Hollow right now. There's at least half a mile of 
navigable channel up the middle, maybe more. And there's a nice colony of Marsh

[cayugabirds-l] Michigan Hollow

2016-04-15 Thread Geo Kloppel
I visited a plantation area on the west side of lower Michigan Hollow this 
morning, hoping for Pine Warblers. What I got was Red-breasted Nuthatches, 
Brown Creepers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Hermit Thrushes.

[cayugabirds-l] Michigan Hollow birds

2013-10-06 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
Today Ngampit and I spent a couple of hours hiking in Michigan Hollow WMA.



Highlights were two WINTER WRENS loudly calling and were seen (separately)! 
After years I have seen Winter Wrens. In two different flocks of chickadees, 
there were several RUBY-CROWNED and GOLDEN CROWNED KINGLETS, one BLACK-THROATED 
GREEN WARBLER. Also came upon a large flock of AM ROBINS (25+) feeding on wild 
grapes. I also heard a RUFFED GROUSE drumming!



Cheers
