[cayugabirds-l] Great Egret--Hile School Rd wetland pm 28Jul19

2019-07-28 Thread AB Clark
Seen S of Hile School Rd, central wetland, preening calmly in dead trees—two 
probably juvenile Great Blue Herons in tree next door.  Found as light was low 
at 855 pm tonight—sans binocs, etc.  Ran back home to get scope—not trusting my 
size estimates in deep dusk.  Dark legs, marginally smaller than herons, 
couldn’t confirm yellow bill against its feathers but—well, there aren’t a lot 
of options.  Bill slender and long, less robust than GBH—at least as seen in 
near darkness.

[cayugabirds-l] Great egret at McIlroy Bird Sanctuary yesterday

2019-05-26 Thread Karen Edelstein
In addition to some excellent botanic sightings yesterday at McIlroy, we
had some spectacular views from the wetland viewing deck of a great egret
swooping and looping over the water, roosting in a tree, and patrolling the
water's edge. Apologies for the late posting.

[cayugabirds-l] Great Egret at Sapsucker Woods 6-13

2015-06-13 Thread Diane Morton
This morning Ken and I led a beginner bird walk at Sapsucker Woods.  One
highlight was a gorgeous breeding plumage Great Egret.  We all had great
looks at its green facial skin through the scope.  We observed the bird
from the vine-covered pergola that looks out on the pond (just south of the
bird feeder area).  Later I went to get my camera for a photo, but the bird
was no longer at this spot.  I hope it returns!

2015-06-13 Thread Gary Kohlenberg
Great Egret is still barely visible at the east side of the pond about midway 
back as viewed from the area Diane describes. It is partially hidden by trees, 
but being bright white helps in picking it up. It occasionally walks around 
within a small area so be patient and it should show itself.

[cayugabirds-l] Great Egret (?) Thomas Road?

2014-05-12 Thread Christopher Dalton
Hi Cayuga Birders,

Driving on Rte 79 towards Ithaca today, I caught a short look at a bird
that I think was a great egret. I was not able to slow down or turnaround,
so hopefully someone else can confirm the bird.

The bird was near the Caroline Elementary School, but across 79 from the
school in a flooded field. What I remember seeing was a large white bird
with long black legs, a long neck and a long yellowish bill. My brain said
immediately, Great Egret. But I wasn't able to stop, slow town, or turn
around to confirm. Has anyone else seen this bird around? Was I seeing
something? Was it a misleading piece of lawn statueage? I hope someone else
will see the bird and confirm that I wasn't hallucinating!

In overdue news, Alberto Lopez, Nancy Chen and I covered much of the east
half of Tompkins county on Saturday morning. Of the 122 species that we
bumped into before 2 PM, highlights were 2 Soras calling and a Snipe
barking at Goetchius, a flyover American Bittern at the Park Preserve
(South), expected but awesome breeding warblers at this site and at Hammond
Hill (Mourning, Canada, Hooded, LA Waterthrush, Prairie, etc), Bonaparte's
Gulls and Orchard Orioles at Myers and Salt Points, respectively, lingering
ducks, a Red-breasted Merganser and Horned Grebe at Stewart Park, and Cape
May Warblers and a Philadelphia Vireo at Sapsucker Woods. Plus one
frustrating glimpse at what may have been a goshawk at the Park Preserve, a
bird that, like so many others, will remain unidentified into eternity.

Sure is fun birding this time of year.

Good birding,
Chris Dalton
Ithaca, NY

[cayugabirds-l] Great Egret, Dryden

This evening on my way home I stopped briefly at the pond on the east side
of Rt. 38 south of Dryden (between Bridle Lane and Crystal Drive) and had a
GREAT EGRET in the back with a few Great Blue Herons.  It was not there when
I returned ten minutes later, however.  The only shorebirds in evidence were
two Solitary Sandpipers along the left edge.
