RE: [cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike at Landon Rd and 79 - still there 4pm-ish

2018-03-18 Thread Marie P. Read
Jeff's Northern Shrike was still in at Landon Road around 4:00pm when I watched 
it for 20 minutes or so. Far off the road in a shrubby field just SE of the 
Landon/Slaterville Road junction. Too far for photos, but a cool bird to watch 
nonetheless! And the lone Snow Bunting was foraging along the roadside too.

Thanks to Jeff for sharing with us.

One of the most cooperative Shrikes I've seen in the county.   I initially saw 
it at noon in an unsuccessful pursuit of a single Snow Bunting and both 
remained visible from Landon Rd for most of the 20 minutes I was there.

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike

2018-01-26 Thread Ann Mitchell
I was at Carncross Road in Savannah tonight looking for Short-eared Owls. 
Around 5:05, I noticed a Northern Shrike sitting in the bushes. Maybe it is the 
same bird that was there last year.

Good birding,

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike, Lapland Longspur, GWF Goose

2016-01-02 Thread Jay McGowan
A couple of highlights near Montezuma so far today:

NORTHERN SHRIKE now in a tree near the end of Carncross Road.

Three GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE with a flock of Canada and Snow geese
along Rt. 89 just north of 5&20. The whole flock took off a few minutes
after we found them and broke up in all directions, so not sure where they
ended up.

A continuing MARSH WREN near the observation tower on the main pool, along
with the same diversity of waterfowl in the reduced open water.

And at least two LAPLAND LONGSPURS found by Joe Wing with Horned Larks just
south of the potatoes building in the Mucklands.

At least three more VESPER SPARROWS, including one in full song, were along
Burdick Hill Road in Lansing this morning. The GLAUCOUS GULL and TUFTED
DUCK continue off Stewart Park, as well as a Double-crested Cormorant and
the usual waterfowl. The back of the pond at Sapsucker Woods has several
RING-NECKED DUCKS, as well as Wood Ducks, Mallards, and Hooded Mergansers.

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike - Brooktondale (slightly out of basin)

2013-03-18 Thread Melissa Groo

This morning my 7-year-old daughter said excitedly, There's an unusual looking 
bird at the feeder. Last time she said that, it turned out to be an Evening 
Grosbeak (many months ago), so I ran over, to find a grayish bird with black on 
its wings, sitting on a branch a few feet from our platform feeder. My mind 
tried to compute what it was, and first went to mockingbird, which is pretty 
rare to begin with around here, but then I realized it was a Northern Shrike, 
as I took in the distinct mask and hooked beak. Soon after it took off in 
pursuit of a mourning dove, perched atop a tall tree across the road for a bit 
while the chickadees went crazy vocalizing, and then finally flew off. 
I did manage to get some snapshots for documentation from inside the house when 
I first saw it. 
A first ever yard bird for us!

Seen at 3:30 this afternoon at the end of Cayuga Vista Drive where there
will be a new development - I walked the lane (cannot drive in there). The
NORTHERN SHRIKE flew in front of me, then landed in the field. I got some
fine views as it stayed still a few moments, then moved about in the dry
grass before it took off again, flying low into the hedgerow.

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike, Short-eared owls Blackbirds etc.

2012-02-26 Thread Meena Haribal
Hi all,

I did a trip around the lake and highlights were large raft of Athya ducks, 
Tundra swans (far out in the middle of the lake), flotilla of Snow Geese in the 
same locations  I have been seeing in the past (don't they ever move?) mostly 
around Union Springs and the latter near Aurora.



At Tshache, there was a young first year Northern shrike, I had to look into 
book to make sure it was not a logger-headed. Lots of geese were heading north 
of Montezuma, I tried to follow them some distance but got blocked by mass of 
land with no roads.  I also saw several flocks of blackbirds - mixture of 
Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Grackle, Starlings and few cowbirds in varying 
compositions, some flocks were pure grackles and some mixture of grackles and 
red-winged blackbirds and others with starlings and cowbirds. But I saw only a 
few flocks head into the MNWR marsh at sunset.



Also many paired Horned Larks, horns were really standing up on a few 
individuals were seen along some back roads. Other birds of interests a 
Northern Mockingbird, and pair of Eastern Bluebirds along Lake Ridge Road.



On the way back just past Ovid intersection on 89, near 7133 house a 
Short-eared flew very close over my car and hundred or two feet ahead another 
came head on and headed to join the previous owl. I turned back to relocate 
them, but they seemed invisible.

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike, Caroline

2012-01-10 Thread Dave Nutter
This afternoon (10 January 2012) I found a first winter NORTHERN SHRIKE along Creamery Road, south of Slaterville in Caroline. The bird was relatively brown, with an indistinct mask, a mostly pale bill, and lots of scaliness/barring below. It was on the west side of the road in the first field south of Six-Mile Creek, which is weedy and has several patches of shrubs and hedgerows. When I first saw it, the shrike was flying to a large central thicket carrying something dark in its talons. This was a distant binocular view, so I cannot say what the cargo was except that it was substantial (not an insect) yet considerably smaller than the shrike, and had no very obvious limbs, wings or tail. I'm guessing mouse or shrew, not bird A minute later the shrike flew from that thicket, not carrying anything, soI figure it probably cached a prey item rather than eating it.This second flight which I saw took it to the top of a shrub in the middle of the south edge of the field, where it sat allowing great scope viewing for several minutes, after which it disappeared when I took my eye off it. I swear birds time their flights to when you glance away from the scope aimed at them.On 8 December 2011 Melissa Groo photographed a first winter Northern Shrike along Boiceville Road. That being the opposite side of the same block, I suspect it may be the same bird. She expressed dismay at development along that road, but I found reassurance that the habitat was still good enough to attract a first winter bird. This points to possible site fidelity over a period of 1 month by one individual, but different individuals being attracted to this site over the years. Without distinctive characteristics, which one might be able to determine with a series of photos, I think it's hard to be sure about multi-winter site fidelity.--Dave Nutter

I had a stretch of not seeing the shrike from Dec 24 until this week, but it 
has been visible daily along both E Miller and Nelson Rds, near their

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike in Danby - still there Tuesday

2011-12-20 Thread Marie P Read
Hi all,

Eric's shrike was there in the same field again today, between about 1:45 and 
3:30 pm. Perching both on hay bales and in the more distance hedgerows. At one 
point caught a mouse after watching from a haybale, shook it vigorously, and 
eventually flew off with it presumably to cache. Fun to watch.

We've had a Northern Shrike hanging out in the field north west of the corner 
of E Miller and Nelson Rds in Danby. We saw it yesterday and followed it for a 
while without very good looks. But today it appeared as we were driving up 
Nelson, it sat close to the road on a hay bale for a while while we sat in the 
car staring it awe. Such a gorgeous bird!

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike, Ellis Hollow Creek Road

2011-11-12 Thread Paul Anderson


Hi!

I found a Northern Shrike on Ellis Hollow Creek Road this morning at 
about 10am, just east of the junction with Turkey Hill Road. There is a 
field there with horses and a few barns. To the right of the barns are 
some bushes that follow the line of a small stream. The bird was in 
those bushes.


Previously I had stopped on Mt Pleasant hoping to find Pipits. No luck 
there, but I did find a pair of Horned Larks.

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike

2011-03-13 Thread joe Diana
Hi All, 
 I missed all the fun yesterday because of work so I thought I might find some 
Snow Geese today. I saw mostly Canada Geese, Swans, and a lot of Pintails in 
the mucklands. There was also Mallards and Widgeons. The light was pretty bad 
and it was also raining.  I did not see the Eagles at the lock. I really gave a 
little time to try and see her head at the nest but did not. On Van Dyne Spoor 
after a slippery ride in the mud and potholes, I was rewarded with a Northern 
Shrike.  I watched it hunt small rodents more or less dropping down on them. I 
have a very blown up photo of it with its prey and one displaying its wing 
patterns. No Snow Geese no matter how much I looked!

[cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike, Trumpeter Swans, Turkey Vultures, Peregrine Falcon

2011-01-31 Thread Dave Nutter
Yesterday (Sunday 30 Jan) Ann Mitchell, Bob McGuire  I went to Summerhill in the morning hoping to see the Hoary Redpolls in the big flock of Common Redpols which Matt Young reported on Lane E along Lake Como Rd. We met Jay McGowan there with similar hopes, and although we saw a lot of COMMON REDPOLLS at times, which is quite fun, it was a very challenging viewing situation, with birds flying between close spruce trees and behind the house with the feeders. Although Ann said she briefly saw a light colored individual, none of the rest of us saw any solid candidates. We also swung by the Hovel Chalet on our way there and back,  where there were impressive numbers of BLUE JAYS and lots of other species, but we did not find any Evening Grosbeaks. However we did find a very cooperative and gratifying immature NORTHERN SHRIKE atop the tallest twig of a tree on Eaton Rd. Ann then had to go to work, but after dropping her off in Ithaca, Bob  I went clockwise around the lake. One thing we noticed was TUNDRA SWANS seemingly scattered along all the shoreline. When we got to the north end of the lake we saw solid birdless ice. There were no openings even at Mud Lock or Harris Park. However near Mud Lock there were 5 TRUMPETER SWANS sitting on the ice. They were not veryclose, yet they did not tolerate us using a scope and binoculars through the open window of Bob's car. The 4 adults bobbed their heads then flew north through a heavy snowfall, making their loud bleating call as they went. The single immature stayed sitting on the ice, neck vertical. I wonder where the adults went and how long it was before they were reunited. The ice comes south well past Lower Lake Rd on the west. We did not drive that road, as we saw people walking many places on the ice, but instead went west to Van Cleef Lake That, too, was frozen solid and birdless. On the east, the ice comes past Union Springs, as far south as Farley's Point In Union Springs we saw an Eastern Screech-Owl plugging the hole of the box in the Factory Street Pond. We did not see vultures yesterday, but early this afternoon (1220) I had a chance to drive by Burdick Hill Road briefly. I wish I could've stayed longer. Instead of 14 Turkey Vultures and 1 Black Vulture on the back row of fenceposts around the big yard on the north (as we saw on Saturday at 1030) today there were 15 TURKEY VULTURES and zero Black Vulture, which I found very amusing as there were no doubts about ID. The TVs were sunning themselves in various positions, facing toward or away from the sun, some with spread wings, others closed. Turkey Vulture #15 arrived from the north as I watched. Is there a carcass beyond the trees? Was the Black Vulture still feeding?  By 4pm, the next time I could check, they had all left, which is not surprising because the sun was low no longer so attractive in that area. This evening as I left work at 5pm it was still light, and none of the American Crows had yet returned to their roost site of the past several days, the treetops along Spencer Rd north and south of the intersection of Stone Quarry Rd. I walk under them in the darkness on my way to work. A possible reason there were no crows around as I began my walk home was a PEREGRINE FALCON which came winging overhead, circled once and disappeared over South Hill After the Peregrine left, a single AMERICAN CROW flew past. --Dave Nutter
