There are currently hundreds of turkey vultures over the compost area and along 
Stevenson Road in Ithaca. They are in the sky, in the trees, on the fence 
posts, and every place.

[cayugabirds-l] TVs on the move

2017-10-27 Thread Paul Anderson
From my office window on Esty St in Ithaca, I can see lots of Turkey 
Vultures flying south. It's been a constant sequence of clumps for the 
past hour. I've counted about 60, but there are probably very many more 
that I can't see.

I counted 47 turkey vultures streaming over our house heading southeast around 
1:30 today. They were in groups of 3-10. Hunt Hill Rd, east of Ithaca. In the 
yard today are a few ruby-crowned kinglets, white throated sparrows and one 
blue headed vireos who was singing ( along with the very hungry usual crew at 
the feeders).

[cayugabirds-l] TVs, Killdeer

2016-05-15 Thread Bill Mcaneny
Late this afternoon there were 9 TVs circling low (tree top height) at the
intersection of Falls Rd and Cayuga View Rd  north of Taug. S.P.

A little bit north on Cayuga View there were 2 Killdeers next to the road
between the cornfields, probable nesters based on past year's experience.

I just looked above my computer screen, I saw a huge flock of TVs heading

I hate to see people expressing violence toward cats but I understand.

I keep my cats indoors. It keeps area wildlife safe from them and them 
safe from area wildlife (including speeding cars and roving dogs, by 
some of which [dogs], I have been attacked while biking.)

But my neighbors let both cats and dogs go all over and do whatever. 
Extremely aggravating!!

?Just as sun was low in the west, I watched 11 Turkey Vultures circle in the 
Six Miles Creek valley form my living room window while making some soup. They 
circled for  about 10 minutes before disappearing, what I think was roosting 
down in the valley for the night.

[cayugabirds-l] TVs and a bone mystery at Asbury

2014-03-20 Thread Chris R. Pelkie
The Turkey Vultures have been reappearing in numbers this week over my house 
and woods and landing in the pines on Asbury Rd just east of the cemetery 
(corner of Triphammer and Asbury) and occasionally in the neighbors’ large 
pines next to our sunroom.

We have had resident pair or two all winter.
Monday, there were 6 birds.
Tues there were 14.
Wed there were 25-30 (couldn’t count as they were boiling around).

I had a good look at the half-white winged (left wing) individual for the first 
time since last year. I thought I saw a spot of white on its breast or belly 
and at first thought it was carrying something white. Haven’t seen it yet again 
to resolve what I was seeing. It may have just been tipped at a weird angle at 
first glance, so I was seeing the wing tip.

Tue I saw 2 cavorting in a raven-like way: very close coordinated flying with 
sharp turns, almost wing tips touching. Never noticed TUVU doing this before so 
very intriguing. Not sure if that is a courting pair or a rivalry show-off pair.

I really like watching these guys; they clearly are having a ball flying in 
harsh windy conditions like yesterday’s. They do some crazy Ivan stunts like 
fly really low and really fast down the creek bed through the trees or really 
low over my house and adjacent trees, then shoot up in the air. Some were being 
pushed sideways by the wind, but always under control (fortunately, to date, 
none have smashed into my sunroom windows like the passerines). I think of them 
as the skateboarders of the bird world: taking nutty chances to show off and 
just have fun.

They all look pretty healthy too: clean bright plumage and bright red face skin 
on the whole; only one missing primary on one bird of the many observed. I 
wonder if the ‘hard’ winter led to more food sources: i have certainly noticed 
decaying flesh smell on several recent walks at home and SSW (and checked my 
boots to be sure it wasn’t me). Probably critters being exposed as the snow 
melts. My dog has turned up several Red Fox caches under the snow.

A few days ago, I found a beef leg bone piece (about 5 inches long, 4 in 
diameter) that we had given the dog, then disposed of in the compost heap when 
she was done getting all the marrow out. The bone was stashed up in the crotch 
of a small branch, 6’ off the ground on a large horizontally growing box elder 
that I pass under when we do our walk. It stayed there a couple days and is 
back on the ground again now (not directly under where it would have fallen). 
Raccoon? Opossum (we had one pass through the yard in the last few days)? Fox 
(they can climb trees and this would be an esp. easy place for a fox to get 
to)? Raptor (we have a resident Cooper’s Hawk but that seems like a silly thing 
for it to fool with)? Corvid? There was no meat or marrow on this bone, so I 
can’t imagine what critter thought it was worth the effort to cache. I think it 
must be too heavy and unwieldy for either squirrel species in the neighborhood.
