[cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Rough-legged Hawk

2020-12-22 Thread Marie P. Read
Around 11 this morning, I watched a Rough-legged Hawk circling over the fields 
along Mt Pleasant Road, before making its way slowly westward toward the 
observatory. Hope it sticks around...it's been a number of years since this 
species spent the winter on Mt Pleasant.

Also, yesterday around the same time, I glimpsed what I presume was the Common 
Redpoll flock foraging far on the south side of the Mt Pleasant weedy field 
(south side of the road)

[cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Rough-legged Hawk, Snow Buntings

2014-12-11 Thread Marie P. Read
Hi all,

On my walk up Mt Pleasant Road around 3:00 this afternoon, I saw the following:

Rough-legged Hawk, the first of the season, flying near the observatory. At one 
point it landed on the snowy ground, scaring up a flock of 11 Snow Buntings. 
Later I watched as the hawk swooped along low to the ground and then snatched 
up a small, dark creature, presumably some rodent.

Since mid-morning, there have been impressive numbers of Canada Geese and 
American Crows in the recently mowed (post harvesting) corn fields at the east 
end of Mt Pleasant Rd, likely because the strong winds of the last few days 
have prevented deep snow build-up, so there is bare ground with corn cobs or 
other potential foods visible. In one patch I saw 6 Horned Larks. Also a Downy 
Woodpecker on the ground checking out corn cobs and stems.

[cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Rough-legged Hawk

2013-11-16 Thread Marie P. Read
Around 11:30 this morning, I found a Rough-legged Hawk hovering over the fields 
just east of the Mt Pleasant Observatory. I watched it for about 15 minutes, 
hoping it would come back into photo range, but it slowly made its way south, 
circling and hovering as it went, until it was out of sight. Hopefully there 
will be others up here this winter.

[cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Rough-legged Hawk

2013-03-25 Thread Marie P. Read
After being absent for most of the winter, there was a Rough-legged Hawk 
hovering over the fields at the eastern end of Mt Pleasant Road around 6:00 
this evening when I drove by. I've had only one other sighting of this species 
up here this year.
