Hi all,

Please create new threads for recent sightings, otherwise we'll always have
a yellowthroat and a snowy owl around yesterday.

Thanks,

Brad

Unfortunately, no sign of the Snowy Owl this morning on the gas
installation at Reese/Seybolt Rd. at 7:15 (but I didn't look for very
long).

2016-02-04 Thread Suan Hsi Yong
It's Reese Road and Seybolt. To the west about 300 yards away look for some
gas pipe installation (or whatever it is). Each time I've seen the bird
it's been on that installation.

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday Snowy owls. Seybolt Road and North End of Cayuga lake. probable Common Yellowthroat.

2016-02-04 Thread Michael Tetlow
 Sorry to post late but I just wanted to send a note that yesterday the
Snowy Owl was seen again on the west side of Seybolt Road just north of
Freese road in Seneca Falls.(I know I missed it last week as did others).

Later, I and 2 helpers were working on the Montezuma Raptor survey at
Cayuga marsh walking the tracks in from route 89 opposite the village of
Cayuga. We totaled 10 Northern Harriers and I Short-eared Owl. On the south
side of the tracks a probable Common Yellowthroat called a couple times from
the marsh just east of the wooded edge. I know the call I just prefer to see
the bird to be sure.

 Just before dark a Snowy owl appeared on the top of the tallest power
pole farthest to our east along the railroad tracks. Don't know where it was
when I was viewing the 2000 plus Tundra Swans from Mud Lock earlier. With no
ice it could have been anywhere. 1000's(probably 15) of Snow Geese flew in
from the north and joined the swans to roost south of Mud lock.

 Several  groups of around 1000 Redhead each were spread out from Cayuga
Lake State Park on the west to south to Union springs on the east. The west
side birds, although distant, had a good number of Canvasback (50ish) mixed
in and the union spring birds had a few of both Scaup species  and close to
500 Ring-necked Ducks.

Folks there is a small place to pull off the road by the railroad tracks 
on  the east side of the road (on the shoulder) (as you face north) just 
beyond where you encounter the actual tracks.  Be careful...it's close 
to the road.

It's Reese Rd. and it runs into Seybolt Rd. in the town of Fayette.
Hope this helps.

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday on Ross Road in Lansing

2015-02-03 Thread Tom
The cold temperatures and deep snow have increased morning activity at our 
feeders, but the diversity has been restricted mostly to the usual suspects.  
The white-throats appeared a few days ago and the Carolina wren is new.  We are 
blessed with woodpeckers-many downies and red-bellied and occasional hairies.

The numbers represent the largest number of ea. sp. seen at one time.

2 Red-bellied Woodpecker
3 Downy Woodpecker
2 Black-capped Chickadee
2 Tufted Titmouse
1 White-breasted Nuthatch
1 Carolina Wren
4 Dark-eyed Junco
4 Northern Cardinal
5 House Finch
10 American Goldfinch
4 blue jays
3 white-throated sparrows

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday

2013-02-27 Thread Susan Henne
2/26/13

Yesterday was a great day birding on Cayuga Lake.  Jill Vaughan and I were 
impressed by the hundreds of SNOW GEESE along the icy shore as we headed up the 
hill out of Aurora just past Great Gully Farm.  With the sun shining on a 
vibrant blue water, they almost looked tropical.  

We were treated to a GREEN-WINGED TEAL at the pond on Factory St. as well as 
RED HEADS dredging up and feasting on huge helpings of green plants.   HOODED 
MERGANSERS  were plentiful on Mill Pond.  At the Mud Locks there was a BALD 
EAGLE sitting at the top of a tree to the right of, and not far from, the 
original nest #1.  Hundreds of TRUMPETER SWANS congregated on the Lower Lake 
Rd. (west shore) with two MUTE SWANS seen among them.  We couldn't help but 
notice the contrast between the busy but soft voices of swans compared to the 
raucous vocalizations of CANADA GEESE.

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday and today bird chasings

2012-02-05 Thread Meena Haribal
After watching the Grebe yesterday, I too headed to Summerhill in the 
afternoon. On Salt road, mostly I saw flocks of chickadees with Tufted 
Titmouse, and several White and Red-breasted nuthatches were seen. Nothing else 
except for the large truck with the backhoe was backing up on Dresser road made 
so much of noise that it was hard to hear any birds. Via Hovel Chalet and 
Fillmore Glen birth place I drove back to Lick street.

A Kestrel was seen half way between Hoag and Fillmore road.  As I came to the 
intersection of Lick and Hoag, I slowed down and scanned the trees. Nothing 
seemed to be around and then shortly from the tree that did not have anything, 
a bird took off calling loudly and right behind it a few more took off, of 
course they were White-winged Crossbills. Once I saw some, I saw more. Another 
group of some twenty plus joined.  So they were there . In the flock I saw one 
I think young male, he had beautiful yellowish head with lots of red on the 
back. He was sat on the top of the spruce and sang. He was stunningly 
beautiful.   I spent some fifteen to twenty minutes. Several minutes in between 
it seemed like there was no one. I guess all of them were busy feeding.

On the way back to Ithaca, I saw another Kestrel, two Red-tailed hawks, one 
Northern Harrier and a few Eastern Bluebirds between Lick and Ed Hill Road.



Today morning, I too made an early morning trip to Snow Owl at NYCC. First, I 
stopped at the South Field and looked at the benches, they were empty. Then I 
stopped at building with sign D from the parking lot, I saw a blue bleacher 
that looked like there was big white plastic bag stuck. I was still in the car 
and watching from inside. As I was watching the plastic bag rose slowly and I 
could a pair of eyes watching my car. I am sure it was aware of my presence. 
The bird was 500 feet away from me. After a couple of seconds again, ducked 
down such that it could not see me. The second set of bench was in line with 
birds eyes, blocking it from seeing me. I still sat in the car, then again it 
peaked at me for few seconds and hid behind again. So I felt the bird probably 
was disturbed by someone in the car so it was wary of the cars. So I did not 
get out to scope it. I went to parking lot on the other side of the building 
and sat near dumpster and watched it. It did the same thing, peak out of its 
hiding place and then hunker down. After sometime it lost interest in my car. 
The body was very dark and face disc was white, so think may be it was a first 
year female.



From there, I went further north and  turned on east side of the lake, Lake 
seemed pretty much empty, except for Canada Geese. Most of the left over 
Tundra Swans were heading towards MNWR. I did not stop at the Aurora as I had 
to be back home for some errands, so I missed the Eared Grebe, but I did see 
Dave Nutter!

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday Night birds and sounds

2011-09-25 Thread Meena Haribal
Hi All,

I spent the night in my yard in a tent. Lots of traffic throughout night, I was 
hoping it will slow down but did not. In between traffic noise I did hear some 
wonderful things.



I  heard birds migrating whole night. I could recognize which I believe were 
Swainson's Thrushes, a few Grey Cheeked, many  zeeps and tsips a couple of 
buzzy calls. I have recorded a few calls will check them out later. Earlier in 
the night I heard an Eastern Screech owl call. Around 2.30 am to 3.20 am, I 
heard a single, slightly longish (may be a second  or two long) hoot repeated 
through the time I mentioned above every few minutes. I have recorded this too, 
but it was way out in the distance. I think this was a LONG-EARED OWL. I will 
post it later if anyone wants to listen to it.



Coyotes howled whole night intermittently and as late as 6.34 am when they were 
very close to my house, when Blue Jays were just getting up.



There is fawn, whose mother died in an accident a few days ago in neighbor's 
yard, whom I see very often in the evenings when I am driving out. It keeps 
coming back to the yard and is all alone. Ate up my Staghorn Sumac plant.  But 
looks like it growing as I see it has lost its baby coat and seems to be 
growing.  Hopefully it does not become pray of these coyotes.



In the morning I spent sometime at Freese Road gardens and did get to see a 
Dickcissel. I also found a Variegated Fritillary (ok, this is not a bird but a 
butterfly, a rare species to this location but this year they have been seen in 
numerous locations in the north, but for me this was the first time I saw this 
year)!



Cheers

Meena

[cayugabirds-l] Yesterday at the Game Farm

2011-03-03 Thread Candace Cornell
Nancy Ostman and I went to look at the Red-tailed Hawks at Cornell's game
farm yesterday from 13:15-13:45 (NW 29 G 37, 29 degrees F, clear). I was
curious to see how the winds would affect the hawk count and behavior. An
approaching Arctic cold front made it extremely windy as temperatures fell
rapidly. There were about 20 RTHA, down from 51 yesterday, with most flying
and soaring instead of perching, as usual, on the poles and fences around
the pheasant pens. The air was alive with RTHA and countless American Crows,
with at least a thousand starlings wheeling and alighting in the pens. Along
Stevenson Road, halfway between the pheasant pens and the compost piles, a
vast number of gulls and crows sailed on the wind, joined for a brief time
by two Turkey Vultures. Numerous small chevrons of Canada Geese flew by, or
rather, were blown by, as we watched the aerial mêlée. Closer to the compost
piles, gull and crow numbers tripled in the air and on the fields, with
crows also perched in the nearby trees. While we saw no unusual species, it
was exciting to be amidst such a vast number of black and white birds being
whipped about in all directions.
