[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock chicks

This morning in an alder swamp at the edge of Michigan Hollow Marsh I nearly 
stepped on a brood of Woodcock chicks. Mom flew up just in front of me, 
attempting distraction, but I looked down at my feet instead, and there they 
were. Photo on my eBird checklist, if you’re in need of a dose of cute:

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock and waterthrush...interesting yard birds!

2019-07-29 Thread bob mcguire
Thanks Marie!

Funny about the woodcock. Last night, as I lay in bed, I heard the 
wing-feathers whistling of a woodcock right outside the window. No “peanuts”, 
no sky display with chirps. Just a woodcock on the move. We had as many as 5 
woodcocks in our fields this spring, and I often hear them displaying here in 
early fall.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock and waterthrush...interesting yard birds!

2019-07-29 Thread Marie P. Read
Hi  everyone,

I found a couple of interesting "yard" birds as I made my way through the woods 
edge on my property to see what was around in the beaver pond next door.
First, up from the ground flew a chunky medium-sized bird which fluttered off 
twittering into the woods and landed on the ground again. Too small for a 
Ruffed Grouse (which ARE there occasionally) and wrong habitat for a snipe, so 
I'm going to call it an American Woodcock.

Second, on my way back I was brought up short by a loud ticking call and on a 
branch over the stream was a Northern Waterthrush. I do seem to have them come 
through this time of year some years, but they don't nest on the property.

Finally, another somewhat unusual bird for my yard is the Carolina Wren that's 
been around for most of this week, in fact there may be two. What an 
interesting variety of songs and calls they make! Never used to see them up 
here at this elevation, but with climate change who knows what may show up next!

And as a follow-up to my search for Caspian Terns at Myers Pt, I did find five 
of them there a couple of days ago and was able to get some photos. All adults, 
but I'm sure the fledglings will show up soon with their parents and that will 
make for some good photo ops.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock/Owl Crawl Saturday Evening

2019-04-14 Thread Suan Hsi Yong
Our group went to Dodge Road, where the woodcocks started later than when I
scouted, but with enough light to be easily seen. After a few skydances,
those with muck boots and binoculars took a few steps into the muddy field
where I was able to get my spotlight on the bird on the ground.

The owling half of our trip bore no fruits, though some thought they saw a
shape flying away from the top of the Dodge Road spruce trees. At Ellis
Hollow Preserve, the silence was decorated by creepy rustlings from the
surrounding leaves which turned out to be night crawlers. Our final attempt
for owls was at Monkey Run South.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock/Owl Crawl Saturday Evening

2019-04-14 Thread bob mcguire
The CBC trip led by Suan Young and myself broke into two groups before heading 
off to look for woodcocks and owls. I led my group to the corner of Snyder Hill 
and Whitted Roads. We got out of the cars at a minute before 8 pm, just as the 
woodcock uttered its first “peent” of the night. We were able to follow its 
flight several times before attempting to get a closer look at it on the 
ground. Unfortunately (for us), the brush had grown up in the past year, and we 
just couldn’t manage a sighting.

Following that we drove over to Hunt Hill Road for a staked-out Barred Owl. 
After a little more than ten minutes, the owl did come in and begin to call. It 
was the presumed female, based on the lower frequency call. Shortly after that, 
the male arrived, and we were treated to a duet that lasted for several minutes!

I read in "Bulls Birds of New York State (1998 edition) that 
woodcock".among our earliest breeders, with males reported in display as 
early as the last week in January and, commonly, by the last week of 
February."(pg. 268) That being said, these reports could possibly be from other 
(coastal?/southern?) N.Y. State.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock Peenting

2018-02-25 Thread Ken Haas
Yesterday, Dave Nutter was riding with me as we participated in Suan’s CBC 
field trip around the lake. Great trip, by the way many thanks to Suan and 
others. Dave suggested that I start listening for woodcock by the field next to 
where I live - just West of Mecklenberg on Rt. 79. So, 6:25PM this evening, I 
walked down the road to the field and PRESTO! There he was and I could hear him 
peenting clearly. Thanks Dave. Looks like Spring is trying to poke through 
Winter’s shroud.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock?

There was just an alert on Facebook that Woodcocks are really suffering due
to the snowstorm as they have migrated in only to find no ground and no
earthworms available.  I hope that your stream may have some open muddy
areas along the edge.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock?

2017-03-17 Thread Lois E. Chaplin
I was out on snowshoes in my backyard around 7:30 last night (dusk). I was 
going down towards the stream when a bird in flight caught my eye. It was 
headed up the stream bed and it landed out of sight near the stream. It made no 
noise - neither vocalizations nor wing noise. It appeared to be football-shaped 
and not a very big bird (large robinesque). There is nearby a known habit for 
Woodcock and I'm thinking that's what it might have been.  Any other thoughts

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock on Cayutaville Rd

2016-05-13 Thread Dave Gislason
Yesterday, while driving on Cayutaville Rd, I spotted a Woodcock in the middle 
of the road. I slowed down and pulled over - the bird didn't fly away, but was 
making a bobbing motion. Thinking it might need assistance, I opened my door, 
talking to it,  but it then started slowly walking to the other side of the 
road, continually bobbing. Is this part of a mating behavior, or was something 
wrong with the bird?

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock

2016-03-08 Thread bob mcguire
Our woodcock has returned! I stepped outside (Sunder Hill area) at 6:30 this 
evening to hear just one sequence of “sky dance”. No “peents” before or after. 
I assume that the guy arrived last night and is just beginning to settle in. In 
past years we have had up to seven woodcocks on and around the property. I’m 
hoping that the next few nights will bring more of his friends and then a few 
females!

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock encounters

2015-05-29 Thread Dave Nutter
Mark's post reminds me of something I'd been meaning to share. This past 
Tuesday (26 May) I had some free time while Laurie was at an eye doctor 
appointment for which I would need to drive her home. I spent the hour 
wandering the woods off Arrowwood Drive in the Village of Lansing between the 
Convenient Care complex and Sapsucker Woods.

In trail-less deciduous forest on a moisture-flattened floor of dead leaves 
marked with occasional tufts of grass, weeds, ferns, and patches of seedling 
trees, I flushed an AMERICAN WOODCOCK from about 5 feet away. It came up from 
my right, passed directly in front of me at eye level, and slowly descended 
about 20 yards to my left and behind me. The orange on its tail was 
conspicuous, its legs dangled as it flew, and it seemed awkward and floppy as 
it alit. Probably Woodcock always look like they have a frightened stare, given 
their large and somewhat rearward-facing eyes, but it certainly gave me a 
worried impression. This was not a bird escaping from being stepped upon by 
exploding underfoot and fleeing. I've had that heart-stopping experience. This 
was a bird trying to distract me.

I began carefully walking around the area looking for a nest, a depression 
perhaps, some irregular formation of the leaves, or a group of eggs below a 
fern frond. After a couple minutes of slow luckless searching I was standing 
about where I started. The adult Woodcock made some movement to ensure I was 
aware of her, so I knew I was onto something. I had been careful with every 
step, circling a fairly small area, but I wasn't seeing a nest or eggs. While 
considering my next move, I noticed an oak leaf-sized patch a few inches in 
front of my right boot. Like the surrounding leaves it was bilaterally 
symmetrical. Its pattern of brown and tan was stronger, yet most of the edge 
was indistinct. Suddenly I recognized it as a flattened downy baby bird where 
surely I had walked. But it was too symmetrical for a crushed body. And then I 
was aware of a sibling in exactly the same position a couple feet to the left. 
Somehow I hadn't stepped on them. They were holding themselves flat. I crouched 
down and found I could pick up the close baby. It had a black bill about an 
inch long which had been extended in front of it like a petiole. The bird in my 
hand began to object with vague struggling and a high thin whine. This sound 
appeared to flip a switch in the other members of the family. As I let my 
captive go, it spread its feathered but useless wings and walked away, while 
the downy youngster on my left stood up, held out its wings and also started 
walking. Two previously overlooked babies to my right also stood up, spread 
their wings like giant mushrooms, and began walking toward where mama had 
returned and given a call a few yards away in denser vegetation before flying 
in front of me again in another attempt at distraction. Even though I could 
easily keep up with them, I pretended the display worked and ignored the babies 
as they disappeared behind logs and among weeds and seedling trees. I left the 
area confident that the family would quickly regroup but amazed at how much 
they, like other fledglings, depend on luck not to be found and eaten.

 watching us for several minutes.  It was only the second woodcock I’ve ever 
 seen at rest by day.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] woodcock viewing?

2015-04-10 Thread Geo Kloppel
The Lindsay-Parsons Preserve has long been a good place for viewing Woodcock 
displays. Just park in the lot, walk down the trail into the ravine, cross the 
little bridge and continue up and out into the big fields. Head for the knoll 
with the Leopold bench: you can see a huge expanse of sky from there, and 
you'll be right in the middle of things.

I haven't actually checked them out there yet this spring, but I'm confident 
that West Danby's Woodcock are putting on a good show. Tonight they're even up 
here on the hillside, in my field on Tupper Road!

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock and Owl

2015-03-20 Thread Susan Danskin
At 7:35 tonight I pulled up to the field just east of the airport on Snyder Rd. 
 The minute I got out of my car I started to hear the “peents of at least one 
American Woodcock coming from the less snowy areas of the field.  During the 
twenty minutes I hung around I heard repeated peenting and the “sky song” 
twice, but was unable to get my binoculars on the bird.  As I was leaving, 
headed west on Snyder, I saw a Great Horned Owl perched at the top of a tree 
beautifully silhouetted by the fading light.  It flew at the sound of my tires 
stopping on the gravel shoulder but fortunately relanded just a few hundred 
yards to the west just before the curve on Snyder.

Bodes well for the SFO Woodcock and Owl watch...

It was along the old railroad grade by Monkey Run South in the Town of Dryden in a tamarack swamp which remained wet despite the frigid temperatures. In past years the first woodcock for the basin has often been found in February, often by Nancy Dickinson on her extensive rich grounds in Mecklenburg, but alas, she has moved out of the basin, and the winter is colder. Perhaps there are woodcock there now, wondering what happened to her. --Dave Nutter

Despite the steady wet snowfall and the late hour, our local woodcock here
behind the Northwood Apts. off Warren Road has been persistently peenting
and doing his display flight as of 11PM.

[cayugabirds-l] woodcock encounter

2013-03-20 Thread Nancy W Dickinson
I had a theory that woodcocks didn't dance when it was too cold or snowy, so 
last evening when I took the dog out around 7:40 I was surprised to hear them 
as we stepped from the lawn to the edge of a brushy field.  There was one 
woodcock just landing (and warbling) to my right, and one peenting very nearby 
on my left, so close that I was frustrated not to see it against the snow.  
Suddenly the one to my right made a sound I'd never heard, a gruff alarm like 
hehehehehehehehehe and with that it flew right past me towards the other bird.  
Then they both rose together in a twittering flight, silhouetted against the 
sky.  The dog began to bark, and the birds vanished.  But it seemed that they 
were competing over the territory?  And maybe in fact the moonlit snow gives 
them a good dancefloor, as long as it isn't too deep.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock arrival

2013-03-20 Thread John and Sue Gregoire
At dusk this evening I happened to glance out a window just in time to see a
Woodcock descending for a landing in our front field. It hasn't been above
freezing
for ages, we still have a snow cover and ponds and puddles are still iced in.
As far
as average arrival date goes, it's two days late, but I was very surprised to 
see
it. Went out to listen, but nothing heard. Probably not a very happy bird
right now.

Our first American Woodcock of the spring is isplaying behind our apartment

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock Photos

Hi everyone,
Here are 4 close shots of an American Woodcock that I photographed last night 
(May 2) in the field bordered by Snyder and Cherry Rd. north of the airport. 
Hard to believe, these were taken handheld, manually focusing, and without an 
external flash! Such an awesome bird and one of my favorite Spring traditions.

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock prowl

2012-04-12 Thread Donna Scott
Wanting more of the cold, windy, faint American Woodcock encounter our Spring 
Ornithology class group had Tuesday night, tonight I went on my own Woodcock 
Prowl by the Snyder Rd./Airport fields. 

First I tried by the tall airport fence where our group went Tues. No Peents 
there. 
So, well after the sun had set, I moved east between the 2 sets of thickets, 
across the road from and a little east of the beige building on Snyder Rd.

Soon, I heard a Peent towards the east bushes. Each time the Woodcock stopped 
Peenting to fly up in the air, I moved towards where the Peents had been. It 
got dark but I am sure I caught glimpses of the bird moving a little on ground. 
Then, after the last Peent and flight, I turned around to face the lighter 
western sky and saw the bird's silhouette as it landed! 

It stopped peenting, so I stumbled over the stubble in the dark, back to my 
car. SO COOL!

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock owl night

2012-04-11 Thread Dave Nutter
As soon as we arrived behind the airport most of my SFO group had an excellent close look at an AMERICAN WOODCOCK on the ground calling before we saw it fly off low toward another spot farther away for complete displays in which we heard the bird calling from the ground, wings whistling during ascent, and vocal chirping during descent. A few of the sharper-eyed among us also saw it momentarily in flight either at the start or end of a skydance. My group saw the flyover of a GREAT HORNED OWL near the Game Farm Road end of the East Hill Recreationway. For several days the species has been spontaneously vocalizing during broad daylight with playback neither necessary nor recommended.--Dave Nutter

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock...finally

2012-03-17 Thread bilbaker
Shannon and I finally heard and saw a Woodcock this evening in the fields
at the top of the property.  Perhaps we had been going out too late given
the lack of moonlight in the evening, or perhaps it was the elevation
(1640-1680 Ft) but this was the first we've heard them this year. It was
great to have this spring harbinger back at our place after reading about
them for the past 2 weeks +...

Hooray!!! I've just been out in this tumultuous weather listening to repeated 
skydance music from a woodcock in the field north of our house. The wind is so 
strong (and cold) I could hear it do the twittering ascent to circle overhead, 
and then the chirping descent, for 7 cycles, but couldn't hear it peent on 
the ground, nor did it do it for long before rising again.  I'm frozen-- how 
can the bird do it?

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock

2011-08-18 Thread Janet McGraw
Last week while vacationing on Wolfe Island in the Thousand Islands(Wolfe is a 
large island but very quiet and mainly rural/agricultural) I was driving after 
sunset on one of the dirt/gravel roads that compose most of the island when I 
saw a woodcock sitting toward the side of the road. It did not move for a 
couple of minutes and I was able to get a photograph of it in the headlights 
before it flew off into the night sky. Wolfe Island offers perfect woodcock 
habitat, with many unused fields and scrub. I continued driving and about a 
quarter mile away from where I saw the woodcock, suddenly in the headlights on 
the dirt/gravel road ahead several small birds flushed up and flew away from 
the road. This happened at least three times as I drove slowly down the road, 
but I could never get a good sighting of these birds, other than they were 
small (robin-sized or smaller) and flew up suddenly ahead. There were probaly a 
dozen altogether. There were no other
 vehicles on this road. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what birds 
these might be. I'm not sure if they were young woodcocks (as I know they are 
active at dawn and dusk), or something else. My husband surmised that they were 
swallows (of which we saw hundreds on the telephone wires on the island, 
gathering for migration), but I didn't think they would be on the roadway at 
night. Any help regarding identification of these birds would be appreciated.

I read your report with interest. I believe that Wolf Island is the  
site of some 85 major wind turbines, now in operation. I am wondering  
how their presence affects the woodcocks' sky dance. And I also  
wonder how the winter Short-eared Owl population is faring.

 Hi Bob,

 This summer, I have been working on the Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands  
 Project, a binational study encompassing all 5 Great Lakes. However,  
 my coworker and I were just working on bird and amphibian surveys at  
 each of our 20 randomly selected sites on the southern and eastern  
 shores of lake Ontario. One of our sites happened to be at Sand Bay  
 on Wolfe Island, and the posting got me excited as we did a lot of  
 birding on the island while working and even when not working. We  
 had Woodcocks all over the island including our study site which was  
 in the shadows of 3-4 turbines. We even had *many* Wilson's Snipe at  
 our site up there. Basically, the turbines seemed to have little  
 effect on numbers as I've never been to a place with more displaying  
 Snipe and Woodcocks. Many other open area birds also seemed  
 unaffected by the presence of the turbines. This is just what we  
 observed in the ~4 days that we were on the island in May, June and  
 early July. Very cool place though with a LOT of birds!

On the hayfields I help manage, we have both young turkeys and ruffed grouse

the stubble after cutting.  We put off cutting until the end of June, but I

[cayugabirds-l] Woodcock

here at 10 but should be free around 11 and I could join you wherever you 
happen to be at the time--up towards this end of the lake or the 
Montezuma/Audubon complex. Let me know and I'll give you my cell #.

The New Busy think 9 to 5 is a cute idea. Combine multiple calendars with 
Hotmail.
