[cayugabirds-l] Osprey

2019-06-27 Thread Bill McAneny
About 4:30 pm today we saw 2 ospreys on Rice Rd, Trumansburg -- an 
active osprey on platform pole & a male on next pole. We're watching.

FIY at platform/pole on Rice Rd, Trumansburg. None last year. A little 
late for bird but perhaps he was just checking platform?

[cayugabirds-l] osprey

2019-04-23 Thread Marty Schlabach
The osprey nest on the top of the cell tower along Rt 96 just outside of the 
hamlet of Covert, Seneca County, is active again.  My earliest sighting was 
April 11.

More recently, while I was driving by, I noticed an osprey sitting atop a 
utility pole by the road, and as I drove by, it dropped to the ground, picked 
something up without landing, and flew off.  I thought it was prey, though I 
didn't know that ospreys fed on anything besides fish.  I suppose it could have 
been grabbing nesting material, but it looked like it was carrying a rodent.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey nests Towns of Romulus, Varick and Fayette

2019-04-23 Thread Sally Eller
The nest which is located about 2 miles south of Canoga on the western
shore is active and appears to incubating. Route 89.
The same is true for the nest on Ernsberger Rd, just east of Knapp Winery,
Town of Varick.
Both are on NYSEG poles.

Alas, no activity again this year for the NYSEG nest on Rte 89 across from
Dean's Cove in Romulus.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] osprey

2019-03-10 Thread Candace Cornell
This is a few weeks early for ospreys, but possible. I'm guessing it's
migrating through. (It's a great time for
them to get lake trout.)

Breeding ospreys start appearing on Cayuga Lake starting about March 25,
although most return in early April.
I usually start looking around the 20th just to be safe, but I've never
seen one at either end of the lake before
the 25th. The older birds return first, followed by younger birds.

Until recently, ospreys were like the swallows at Capistrano, returning on
the exact same day each year. However,
in the last three years, a number of nests I observe have been arriving a
day or two earlier each year. Birds that
traditionally arrived on April 5 until 2016 returned on March 31 in
2018—climate change suspected.

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey

2018-05-01 Thread Dave Nutter
On Sunday afternoon I was biking south along the Cayuga Waterfront Trail south 
of the Farmers’ Market. The weather was chilly and cloudy, and the racing crews 
were gone, so no people on boats or paddleboards were on the Inlet. An Osprey 
was overhead. It did some confusing maneuvers before plunging feet first and 
going completely underwater. A couple seconds later it emerged back into view, 
and in one motion took flight carrying a very substantial fish, which probably 
weighed a substantial portion of or perhaps equaled its own weight. The Osprey 
flew with its prey to one of the poles supporting the lights for Union Fields, 
but not the nest. It took awhile for it to gain the elevation.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey on nest, briefly

2018-04-28 Thread Dave Nutter
This afternoon one Osprey stood on the nest with its wings partly spread 
(Mantling? Solicitation?) while calling for a long time. Meanwhile a second 
Osprey kited fairly low over the occupied nest, then circled and repeated 
several times. 

It looks like an Osprey is incubating (white of a head low and a bit hard to 
see) on the nest at the east end of Stewart Park and also on the nest in Union 
Fields.

 Osprey Trail map, and I don’t know its name). If I recall correctly, last 
 year it looked like a nest there would be occupied (sticks being brought, 
 Osprey frequently standing on them), but then it was abandoned. I wondered 
 if there was too much human activity directly underneath. It’s a popular 
 fishing spot. This year on my sporadic observations I had not seen any 
 Osprey at this platform until yesterday afternoon, when I saw an Osprey 
 glide in and alight on the nest. I had just enough time to think, “Wow, I 
 must tell Candace!” before a second Osprey followed, but instead of 
 perching, it descended toward the bird on the nest talons first. The 
 occupant vacated pronto, flying upstream, while the evictor continued 
 westward without even touching down. Maybe there are established Ospreys 
 who don’t want certain other nearby platforms to be occupied.

2018-04-26 Thread Barbara Chase
I walked around Renwick woods earlier in the afternoon yesterday (April 25) and 
watched that nest for about 15 min yesterday around 1:30pm.  I saw the one 
osprey land on the nest briefly and then fly away when the second one 
approached.  This interaction was repeated at least 5 times within the 15 
minutes I watched.  Once the first osprey sat on the nest calling loudly for 
about 2 minutes before the second osprey came and they both flew off.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey on nest, briefly

2018-04-25 Thread Dave Nutter
Yesterday afternoon shortly before 5pm I was on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail 
where it crosses Fall Creek on a green suspension bridge between the end of 
Pier Road and the western corner of Renwick Wildwood. There’s a pole with an 
Osprey platform just west of that bridge (it’s not on the Osprey Trail map, and 
I don’t know its name). If I recall correctly, last year it looked like a nest 
there would be occupied (sticks being brought, Osprey frequently standing on 
them), but then it was abandoned. I wondered if there was too much human 
activity directly underneath. It’s a popular fishing spot. This year on my 
sporadic observations I had not seen any Osprey at this platform until 
yesterday afternoon, when I saw an Osprey glide in and alight on the nest. I 
had just enough time to think, “Wow, I must tell Candace!” before a second 
Osprey followed, but instead of perching, it descended toward the bird on the 
nest talons first. The occupant vacated pronto, flying upstream, while the 
evictor continued westward without even touching down. Maybe there are 
established Ospreys who don’t want certain other nearby platforms to be 
occupied.

[cayugabirds-l] osprey on hogs hole platfrom

2018-04-25 Thread Nancy Cusumano
This morning as I drove by, there was an osprey sitting on the platform
that is just north of hogs hole, but south of the Hangar, right along rt
89. There is often red tail who hunts from that platform but this is the
first time I've seen an osprey on it. It also looked like there was a new
stick or maybe sticks on it. I will keep a watch, as I drive past 2x a day.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey egg laying

2018-04-14 Thread Candace Cornell
​Cindy,

It's probable that the Treman State Marine Park nest does have eggs.

The evidence Is that there will be an adult incubating at all times. The
female will do most of the incubating, but the male should give her breaks
a few times a day.

The ospreys at Treman (nicknamed Treman & Marina) are probably about 10
years old now. Older (>10 yrs.), highly experienced pairs can lay their
eggs earlier than younger ones, and now that they are almost 10yrs old,
it's possible that Marina laid as early as 7-10 days after her arrival. It
all depends on how rapidly her ovaries matured. Two weeks is the norm for
most established nests. Younger pairs with little or no nest usually take
longer to court and build, and may wait 10–20+ days before laying.

Ophelia at Salt Point is not on eggs yet and Orpheus was still sky dancing
for her today. It should be any day.

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey Talk Wed. April 4, 7pm

2018-04-02 Thread Candace Cornell
The public is welcome to attend my talk on ospreys this Wednesday, April 4,
at 7 pm. in the auditorium at Kendal. I'll concentrate on the basic life
histories of ospreys in the Cayuga Basin and at Lansing's Salt Point. I've
collected beautiful photographs so it should be visually entertaining.

The ospreys are back!

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Please email me with all reports of osprey nests you see in the Finger
Lakes and across NY, which are not on the Cayuga Lake Osprey Trail
.
Please include the location and/or GPS coordinates. The information we
obtain is used to help protect and conserve ospreys, our primary
bio-indicators of our water quality and the health of the environment.
Thank you for helping in our osprey surveying efforts.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey

2018-03-19 Thread Nancy Cusumano
Hi Candace,

There’s an osprey nest, at least there was last summer, across the lake from 
the one you are talking about but it’s on private property. It is just south of 
Taughannock st Park, and just south of a home my neighbors have. It is by no 
means the tallest tree, though, as the lake shore cliff rises above it. They 
were feeding young when we were there last August. Lots of ospreys around these 
days, so good to see.

I'd love to find that osprey's nest—I have been looking for a few years.
Ospreys don't nest in woods, but in the open where they can see 360 degrees
to spot predators—eagles and great horned owls. So if you are looking for
the nest, look in fields or on a cliff face in the area. There can not be
any trees around that are taller than the nest.

PLEASE let me know if you find it!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey data

2017-11-07 Thread Dave Nutter
The occupied Osprey platform is not at Robert Treman SP but at Allan H Treman 
State Marine Park in the field north of the marina. The unoccupied Hogs Hole 
platform is in the same park but west of the marina. Union Field is in adjacent 
Cass Park, and the Newman Golf Course platform is at the northwest corner of 
the course next to the woods along the east bank of Cayuga Inlet. Last year I 
repeatedly saw an Osprey carrying prey south along the Inlet, but I don’t know 
where the nest was/is. 

Great Blue Herons will commute several miles between their nest colony and 
their feeding sites. I have seen colonies in upper Robert Treman SP, and in 
state forests in the hills years ago, but I don’t know of any current nearby 
locations. I think there have been fewer Great Blue Herons along Cayuga Inlet 
north of the bridges since the Cayuga Waterfront Trail was put in past the 
NYSDOT yard north of the college boathouses, and since the surge in popularity 
of kayaking and paddle-boarding, because these herons don’t like people to come 
too close, but I have noticed several Great Blue Herons at dusk around the 
mouth of Fall Creek, so they may be feeding in the area when fewer people are 
present.

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Osprey data

2017-11-07 Thread Candace Cornell
Gabriel,

Pardon my delayed response, as I was traveling  I have nesting data on 124
osprey nests as part of my Cayuga Lake Basin Osprey Project and can easily
tell you the few osprey nests by the Cayuga inlet. I know where there are
GBHE rookeries, in the area, but not near Stewart Park and the Inlet where
the birds hang out.

Osprey nest occupied by breeding pairs in the southern end of lake: Stewart
Park behind Youth Bureau, Robert Treman Marine Park, Union Field. This is
the southern point of their nesting in the basin as far as I know.  Let me
know if you find any.

Osprey nest platforms not yet occupied in the southern end of lake:
southend of Stewart Park footbridge to Newman Golf Course, Newman Golf
Course west end, Hogs Hole, and Cherry Street.

Other area osprey pairs that also fish in the inlet and southern end of
Cayuga are nesting at McGowen Fields and the Cornell Ponds.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey in Stewart Park - 2nd brood??

2017-08-28 Thread George Dillmann
Hi all,
It's been fun to see the Osprey still on the nest in Stewart Park (the platform 
nearest the lake), and calling and circling in the air nearby. Why would they 
still be using a nest this time of the year? Is it possible that they're 
raising a 2nd brood?

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey and Blue Heron

2017-07-20 Thread Marie P. Read
Ospreys and Great Blue Herons often have a contentious relationship. These 
large herons compete with the Ospreys for nest sites and have been known to 
prey on osprey eggs. With their dagger-like bills they are well able to look 
after themselves even against a raptor, so I would not view this as heron being 
victimized. Nature is competition.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey, Pine Warbler, etc.

2017-05-23 Thread W. Larry Hymes
While walking Beebe Lake/Mundy early yesterday afternoon, I saw an 
OSPREY carrying a fish and heading in a generally easterly direction 
(going to Game Farm Road??).  Also, while walking Comstock Knoll, I once 
again heard a PINE WARBLER.  Finally, I ran into another birder at the 
upper end of Beebe (sorry, can't remember her name!).  When we see each 
other on rare occasions, we'll discuss what birds we've been seeing.  
She was puzzled by the call of one particular bird, which she described 
as like a Robin, but with a sore throat.  Focusing only on the "sore 
throat", I half-heartedly mentioned the possibility of yellow-throated 
vireo.  I didn't have time to stay there and think what else it might 
be, so we left each other, walking in opposite directions.  A very short 
time later it finally came to me.  I said to myself, you dummy it was a 
scarlet tanager!  By then we were too far apart for me to tell her.  I 
hope she reads this message! 

I had heard a scarlet tanager a few days before at Beebe doing the same 
song, and I too was initially perplexed.  It took me a short time, 
before the name of the bird came to me.  Being a mostly casual birder, 
at the start of each new season I find myself having difficulty pulling 
out the names of birds singing songs that sound all too familiar --- 
sort of like starting all over!!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] osprey nest on Warren Rd.

2016-04-21 Thread Candace Cornell
NYSEG crews have been trying to thwart the ospreys from building on the
Warren Road pole as this location presents a serious fire hazard. They hope
to erect an alternative pole nearby in the next few days in an effort to
move the birds. It is not the best place to raise a family, but the ospreys
seem determined. Many thanks to the crews for their help in this relocation.

There were two Osprey flying around the north end of Dryden Lake yesterday 
morning. One landed on the new platform. This morning, I noticed that there are 
sticks on the platform which I had not noticed before.

At Myers Point yesterday afternoon, I caught site of two Osprey sitting in a 
tree. I kept an eye on them while also checking out the gulls and Loons. A 
short time later, I glanced up to see two Osprey mating. Seems things are 
progressing in a natural order.

[cayugabirds-l] osprey activity at Treman

2016-04-10 Thread Liisa S. Mobley
The osprey nest # 59: Treman Marina nest, on the Cayuga Lake Osprey map had 
some promising activity today!  While walking around the Treman Marina and lake 
shore area at around 11:30 or noon, we saw and heard an osprey calling on the 
nest.  As we came closer to the nest, another osprey flew in, and a bit of 
mating activity took place.  Cool! - yet I always feel a bit like obnoxious 
paparazzi when I have my binoculars aimed on the couple.  After two or three 
minutes, one of the ospreys flew off, and the female (?) continued to call for 
a while longer.  Perhaps eggs and chicks to come.

We stopped by the Treman Marina (#59) nest this evening after work and were 
happy to see both Ospreys back in the area with the female in the nest.

The male started to fish but was drawn away by a banded, adult Bald Eagle over 
the inlet near the marina.  He gave chase with the eagle heading toward Jetty 
Woods.  Another BE in the trees across from the jetty on the west side of the 
inlet caught the eye of the female and she engaged and ultimately drove it west 
along the southern shore, returning to the nest.  The male caught a fish 
somewhere and re-engaged the first BE, pushing it west across the marina and 
the Hog Hole nest.  The male Osprey then ate its fish on a pole along the 
hillside trail on the west side of RT89.

Nests #60, 61, no Ospreys this evening.
Nest #62 (Union Fields) had an Osprey in the nest as we were leaving ~5:30PM.


Around 7:00PM we sighted an Osprey hover-fishing over Beebe Lake

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey at Beebe

2015-08-07 Thread Dick Feldman
An Osprey is right now in the evergreen just on the south side of the dam.  No 
prey in talons.  Oh, maybe he was resting - just flew to the woods on the other 
side.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey at Britt Road

2015-08-07 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
Hi all,
I was out in the corn field helping colleagues to weed their corn plots on 
Britt Road near Poplar Ridge. There is a medium sized farm pond. Here we 
observed an Osprey diving into the pond for a fish and came up with nothing and 
dove again and finally picked up a fish and headed towards in the direction of 
lake.  So there must be a nest somewhere in that direction. I don't remember 
one near Aurora being reported.  Does anyone know any location south of Aurora?

Also I saw several time a pair of Horned Larks, Red-tailed Hawk, lots of Barn 
and Tree Swallows with a few Rough-winged swallows and lots of odonates.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey Fledgling

2015-08-06 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal

A colleague of mine who lives on the lake along East Shore told me that she saw 
a young osprey begging for food. So I  was wondering which 
Ospreys have fledglings. Is it Cass park pair or Salt Point pair or is it an 
unknown nesting pair?

Thanks in advance for any info I will pass it on to my colleague.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey in Fall Creek, downtown Ithaca

2015-08-04 Thread Sandy Wold
I've been seeing Osprey flying low in Fall Creek on three different days
this week, each time calling.  One over Gimme Coffee and twice over my
house within 100 feet above, and calling.  Once there were two of them.
 they circle around and then head back in the direction of Stewart
Park/Cass Park.  Exciting!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey (2) appear at Deans Cove

2015-06-09 Thread Candace Cornell
Great News! I'm glad the riser final got put back into action. Osprey often
need the stimulation of a few sticks to get into nesting mode. It was such
a shame that the folks who installed the new riser up left the entire nest
on the ground below.

It really is too late for a pair to attempt nesting, but anything can
happen. The earliest an osprey has fledged that I've read of was 7 weeks
old. If they pair got down to busy immediately, had only one, big egg, and
the youngster learned to fly and fish remarkably fast, it might be possible
to fledge a chick by the end of September. Occasionally, a dedicated parent
in the northeast will stay by the nest until late Oct. to tend to a fledge
that is struggling with independence.  I've heard of stranger things.

This pair could be a suffering from a failed nest in the last week or so
and are building a frustration nest in the riser. If so, they will probably
mate i n it, but not lay eggs, and then migrate early in mid-August.

We'll have to follow what happens. Thanks for the report!

Candace

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey

I finally confirmed that the East Hill osprey stops at Beebe lake to fish. 
Today I saw him (or her?) catching a nice sized fish and fly away with the 
booty towards its mate/nest.

Also saw a fresh specimen of a Giant Swallowtail around Beebe lake. And then 
saw a Lancet Clubtail among the odonates.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey and other spring arrival dates

2015-04-03 Thread John and Fritzie Blizzard
The e-mail below was sent by Matt Medler 7 yrs. ago in response to a 
question asked by Linda Van Buskirk. With numerous folks mentioning 
osprey sightings, it seems like an informative e-mail to re-send. For 
you newbies in the hobby, Matt Medler was always someone who would 
find an answer to a dumb or puzzling question ... indeed a wonderful, 
patient, MUCH appreciated help to inexperienced birders. We have MANY 
people in the hobby who are quick to help  I thank them.

While this osprey information was sent in March 2008 it seems relevant 
to 2015 as some of us have become aware of the increasing numbers of 
ospreys  nests in the Cayuga Basin. We're thankful that Robyn Bailey, 
her husband  NYSEG have worked together to have protected, elevated 
nesting platforms placed securely atop utility poles.

After my report of finding about 18 or 20 nests here at the north end of 
Cayuga Lake last spring, Candace Cornell *_cec222@gmail.com_* was given 
the opportunity to be the official record keeper. I would ask that all 
osprey sightings be posted, giving exact locations of nests so Candace 
can document them. She would appreciate if any birder can keep track of 
nests they see  record when birds,  how many, hatch. And down the 
line, when they fledge. She can give more information to those desiring it.

Matt, if I failed to see it  you have updated this information, please 
post it (again).

Fritzie, Union Springs

Subject:Osprey and other spring arrival dates
Date:   Thu, 27 Mar 2008 14:16:56 -0400
From:   Matthew Medler m...@cornell.edu






Hi Linda and All,

Information on Osprey and other arrival dates for the Cayuga Lake Basin 
can be found at the Cayuga Bird Club web site at: 
_http://www.birds.cornell.edu/cayugabirdclub/firstrecords.htm_

In addition to First Records lists for 1998 to 2008, this page also 
includes two different arrival lists. The first is a list of historical 
arrival dates, prepared by Dr. Charles Smith based on data from 1903 to 
1993. The second is a list of arrival dates that I prepared based on 
Basin sightings from 1999 to 2004. I plan to update this second list 
with ten-year averages after this spring migration.

The average arrival date for Osprey on Dr. Smith's list is April 12. 
During the past decade, the arrival date for Osprey has been about two 
and a half weeks earlier. The median arrival date on the list that I 
compiled for 1999-2004 is March 26, and this is also the median date in 
looking at records from 1998 to 2007. The arrival date for Osprey was 
amazingly consistent during those ten years, with 9 of the 10 records 
coming in a six day span (March 23 to March 28).

John and Fritzie Blizzard's sighting on March 16 this year (March 17 for 
a non-leap year) is notably early, even compared with the past ten 
years. It is interesting to see that the next sighting of the species 
didn't come until ... March 26 (March 27 for a non-leap year).

Good birding, Matt Medler

[cayugabirds-l] osprey, Red-thr Loon, Snipe, Woodcock

2015-04-02 Thread Carol Schmitt
Yesterday morning, while watching the Red-throated Loon by the white 
lighthouse, an Osprey flew over and landed by the inlet.  On a roll, we 
continued on and the Snipe was still calmly probing in the wet spot on 
Stevenson Rd.  Last night, precisely at 8:00 pm (Mohawk Rd, airport). a 
Woodcock flew in and began peenting loudly, then sky-dancing.  The moon was 
bright and Venus was sparkling.
  Today we could hit 60º?  Nice.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey interaction

2014-06-08 Thread Karen Edelstein
Last night, during our sunset walk at Salt Point in Lansing, Joe and I got
some nice views of the osprey pair sharing a fish on the platform edge.
When we were ready to leave (it was getting quite dark by then) one osprey
was down incubating presumably while the other stayed alert on the perch
(ha-ha... fish or pole or both). Some movement along the outside of the
nest caught Joe's attention.  Although the light was terrible, I could see
a long, twitching tail with a slight notch and very quick movements.  Blue
gray gnatcatcher I'm guessing.  The little bird and the big osprey had to
have been aware of each other but unbothered by each other's presence. The
little bird worked its way around the edge and then into the nest itself
before it got too dark to see anymore.
What was going on? Gleaning bugs?  Anyone else seen this? Could it have
been some species other than gnatcatcher?

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey interaction

2014-06-08 Thread Carol Keeler
When I used to photograph the Bald Eagles at Mud Lock, I saw House Sparrows 
within the Eagle's nest as well, so I wasn't too surprised to hear that they do 
it to Ospreys as well.  I'm glad to hear that the sparrows may provide some 
benefit to the Ospreys, as well.  I hate the House Sparrows because they are so 
aggressive at the feeders and hog the bird houses. I tolerate them because they 
eat lots of bugs in my gardens and yard.  I've never had an insect problem 
because the birds take care of them.

 There is a family of house sparrows nesting with the ospreys again this year

  address this, but it has not been posted yet as our web master is in 
 Finland.  
 
 The fish-eating ospreys tolerate other species such as the sparrows, tree 
 swallows, starlings, and others to nest near them, usually under the 
 platform. It's probably some form of mutalism, but it has not been studied. 
 The smaller birds probably keep the nest cleaner with less ecoparasites for 
 the osprey to contend with. In exchange, the smaller bird get a sturdy 
 structure to build a nest on and the (passive) protection of the osprey 
 against predators. 
 
 I wish it had been a gnatcatcher. The house sparrows are ravishing the Salt 
 Point nest boxes, destroying the bluebird and tree swallow eggs that were 
 doing so well.

 some species other than gnatcatcher?

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey platforms and NYSEG correction

2014-05-12 Thread Candace Cornell
Bill—



My apologies, as I gave you some misinformation the other day regarding
osprey platforms on utility poles. The osprey population on Cayuga Lake is
increasing exponentially and there are not enough platforms to suit their
present, let alone their future, needs. Since we need the cooperation of
private landowners to build osprey platforms to augment NYSEG’s efforts, it
is important that we keep the facts straight.



• Osprey platforms attached to utility poles using risers are a last resort
measure and NOT the preferred solution to problematic osprey nests.

• Platforms cannot be installed upon request.

• Riser platforms are only used in emergencies where Ospreys are attempting
to build nests and no alternatives exist.

• NYSEG has many environmental stewardship projects, but there is no budget
specifically for osprey platforms.

•All questions about osprey that pertain to NYSEG should be addressed to
Paul Paradine atpbparad...@nyseg.com



Please relay this information to your friend. I am compiling a collection
of osprey plans for private landowners to use to build their own platforms
to promote landowners building osprey platforms in the Cayuga Basin. They
will be posted on the Osprey at Salt
Pointhttp://www.lansingrec.com/ospreys website
in a week or so. Thanks!



Candace

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey nesting

2014-04-28 Thread John Eliot Parks
I believe there is an osprey attempting to nest on one of the light fixtures at 
the Game Farm Rd. soccer fields, although a large soccer event yesterday may 
have put them off.

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey

2014-04-24 Thread Carol Keeler
A pair of Osprey are trying to build a nest on the power structure at the 
beginning of Towpath Rd. I watched them break off sticks then lay them on the 
wooden tower.  So, keep your eyes on the beginning of Towpath to see if they 
successfully construct a nest.  It's a new one for Fritzie and Candance's 
Osprey list.

Evening of Monday April 21,  observed 2 osprey with nesting material landing on 
each of the three tallest light poles  at the Ithaca High School stadium/track. 
 There are no platforms there so I doubt they will be successful.  Took a few

Thank you so much Fritzie for rechecking and notating the exact locations
of the osprey nests in your area. As I said in my earlier e-mail, I am
trying to keep track of all the osprey nests on Cayuga Lake and am starting
to collect information on Seneca Lake. Your list of active nests is
invaluable to my efforts is greatly appreciated.



Do you have any anecdotal data on how long these individual nests have been
in use by ospreys? Any recollections, no matter how approximate, may be
useful. I know you are very busy and will patiently await your reply.
Meanwhile, I hope you are enjoying this delightful, albeit changeable,
weather and the birds it brings.

Thanks to Bill for noting that there is a west side of the lake as well!

For several years there has been an osprey nest at the top of the light tower 
of the former landing strip at the Seneca Army Depot.  It is visible from rt 
96a, less than a mile past the entrance to the veterans cemetery and before you 
get to the entrance to Sampson Park.  It is sort of behind a relatively new 
dairy operation on the east side of rt 96a.

There has also been an osprey nest in downtown Geneva at the top of the Verizon 
cell tower.

[cayugabirds-l] osprey pair courting over Jessup Woods

2014-04-13 Thread Anne Clark
Today about 11-1130, a pair of ospreys, one clasping a 6-8 inch fish with both 
feet, circled, giving high calls, and repeatedly alighted on the playing field 
lights just W of the Woods and N across Jessup Rd from the Purcell Center.  
They moved off toward the north, appearing to stay for a while almost to 
Pleasant Grove Place (from my vantage point in Alot).  

After a bit, the one with the fish flew S toward me (still closer to PL. Grove 
Pl)  giving high cries again, and suddenly another was flying fast after it.  
For a  moment, I thought it was its fast flying mate, but it was an adult bald 
eagle.  It  very handily caught up, the osprey dropped the fish, the eagle 
caught it, and beat its way west (essentially toward the Lake, I guess).

That's the second pair trying to nest on CU campus athletic field lights. I
think CU should consider putting up a safe osprey platform or two!

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey - Nest Building?

2014-04-11 Thread Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes
This morning, as I was driving along Game Farm Road (East Hill, Ithaca) from 
Ellis Hollow Road to Route 366, I observed an in-flight Osprey carrying a 
stick. The bird landed atop one of the six floodlight poles for the Cornell 
soccer fields closest to Ellis Hollow Road. Specifically, it landed on the 
middle pole of the South row of three poles. I suspect this bird may be 
constructing a nest at this site. Not a bad site for another Cornell nest 
cam…easy power access…

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

[cayugabirds-l] Osprey

2014-04-11 Thread Carol Keeler
It seems the Osprey have reclaimed their former nest at Mud Lock.  It's nice 
that they have returned to their former nesting site.  With so many Osprey 
around I figured a pair would claim it sooner or later.

The Osprey pair on the rt. 89 bridge have begun to rebuild their nest on the 
same side as last year.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] osprey at Salt Point

As I was driving down Rte 89 towards Ithaca this morning, just past the Pines, 
an osprey carrying a big fish flew, low, several hundred yards along the 
roadway just in front of me.

Steve and Sue Ruoff saw the first osprey to come around Salt Point
yesterday.. It was fishing and hanging out in the SP-Myers area, but did
not show any particular interest in the nest. I also saw it fishing, but it
