[cayugabirds-l] ID Help: Juvenile Hermit Thrush or Veery?

2020-08-08 Thread Sandy Podulka

Hi Folks,

I took these photos on July 20 at the top of Deputron Hollow Rd, 
where both Hermit Thrush and Veery breed nearby.

Can anyone tell me which this one is?

Thanks,
Sandy

RE: [cayugabirds-l] ID help? white winged gull sp. on Stewart Park ice edge.

2019-01-23 Thread Kevin J. McGowan
Good call, Josh. That’s a first cycle Glaucous Gull, and you’ve described all 
the right characteristics.

I had a first cycle at the Cornell compost on Stevenson Road last Saturday, 
likely the same bird.

Best,

Kevin

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] ID help? white winged gull sp. on Stewart Park ice 
edge.

Hi friends,
Sorry if this is an inappropriate venue for this question. I saw what I believe 
was a 1st winter Glaucous Gull on the ice edge at Stewart Park as viewed from 
East Shore Park. I have little experience with white winged gull species. 
Through the scope the bird was all white with light brownish tonal markings. 
The bill seemed large and straight through the scope, with a clear dark tip and 
pale pinkish base (no fading to black), pink base was about 3/4 of bill length. 
Size was difficult to judge at that distance, but seemed as large as the nearby 
herring gulls, and seemed to have a relatively flat head. I've attached a link 
to my eBird checklist with poor digiscoped photos. Any experts out there 
willing to help a beginning guller?
Thanks,
Josh

Re: [cayugabirds-l] ID help? Whistling at night

2016-09-23 Thread Asher Hockett
I heard twice a descending call this morning, lower pitched and coarser
than what I associate with E. Screech Owl. It seem to definitely be an owl
- it was still dark with only a few peeps and chirps from other
birds/frogs/insects - and the descending pattern was like that of the E.
SO.  Trying out by youthful voices, I'd guess.

Thanks to all the feedback and comments. Since the bird was perched rather
than a flyover, seems like the best fit is a Eastern Screech Owl making (to
me) an unusual version of its call.

I’ll defer to the experts but would not rule out Screech-owl. I’ve heard that 
also: clear descending rather than whinny descending but followed by other EASO 
distinct sounds, so concluded it was the same bird. I’ve been hearing EASO loud 
whinnies just in the last couple of weeks, first time this year, so I guess I 
have a male imoving around checking out the territory or advertising once 
again.

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's bird 
call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird heard last

The call was a long (1-2 s) descending clear whistle (not a whinny like a 
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a high note and ending quite low. It 
was repeated 3-4 times and then followed by a repeated whistle on a single, 
high note. The timbre was similar to a saw-whet owl, but the tempo was 
different.

 

It was heard at 1 AM at the border between a field and scrubby forest.

I’ll defer to the experts but would not rule out Screech-owl. I’ve heard that 
also: clear descending rather than whinny descending but followed by other EASO 
distinct sounds, so concluded it was the same bird. I’ve been hearing EASO loud 
whinnies just in the last couple of weeks, first time this year, so I guess I 
have a male imoving around checking out the territory or advertising once again.

Dear all,

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's bird 
call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird heard last 
night.

The call was a long (1-2 s) descending clear whistle (not a whinny like a 
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a high note and ending quite low. It 
was repeated 3-4 times and then followed by a repeated whistle on a single, 
high note. The timbre was similar to a saw-whet owl, but the tempo was 
different.

It was heard at 1 AM at the border between a field and scrubby forest.

Regards,
Eva

[cayugabirds-l] ID help? Whistling at night

Dear all,

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's
bird call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird
heard last night.

The call was a long (1-2 s) descending *clear* whistle (not a whinny like a
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a high note and ending quite low.
It was repeated 3-4 times and then followed by a repeated whistle on a
single, high note. The timbre was similar to a saw-whet owl, but the tempo

Re: [cayugabirds-l] ID help needed

2011-02-02 Thread Asher Hockett
Red-bellied WPs do have a red belly. Not very red, but red. None of our
local woodpeckers show a crown other than the Pileated, but it can happen -
there's a recent discussion here about crowns on birds which typically
aren't known for them.

The only other candidates size-wize would be Northern Flicker or Hairy
Woodpecker, but neither has a red belly.

  Ok, I know the immediate reaction to this question, but if anyone can
 help, they’re on this list serv!  My wife is trying to describe a bird she
 saw at our suet feeder (only 5 feet from window).  She describes a “robin
 sized bird” with black and white ladder pattern on wings/back/tail areas and
 a red head.  So I’m thinking Red Bellied woodpecker, but when I showed her
 the picture, she went on to describe that its belly WAS red.  Also strange
 is that she claims that its head was not only red but crowned with a “tuft”
 of feathers.  My son saw it too and backs up her story.  I have no idea what
 she saw.  Any takers???



 Thanks.

[cayugabirds-l] id help

2010-05-13 Thread Ray Zimmerman
About 1/2 an hour ago I saw a warbler-sized bird foraging on the ground under 
the trees in front of the parking spaces facing the pond at Cornell 
Plantations. It was a pretty uniform brown on top and streaked brown below with 
a yellow throat and yellow underside near the tail. The top of the head was 
more of a reddish brown. It had a thin bill and wagged it's tail up and down as 
it foraged. Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera with me.

Ideas?

Re: [cayugabirds-l] id help and Spanish bird names

2010-05-13 Thread Ray Zimmerman
Thanks, several others suggested Palm Warbler ... after looking at some more 
photos, I'm convinced that's what it was.

Thanks everyone ... for the ID help and the suggestions about Spanish names. 
For others interested in an on-line resource for the Spanish names, Alberto 
Lopez mentioned the following site:

Happy birding,

 Hi Ray,
 
 Your mystery bird sounds like a western Palm Warbler.  Your plumage 
 description is good, and Palm Warblers are well-known for their tail wagging.
 
 Regarding your question about Spanish bird names, Kenn Kaufman put out a 
 Spanish-language version to his North American field guide a few years ago.  
 I don't know if it is readily available or not, but I'm sure you could find 
 out easily on Amazon.com or some other bookselling site.
 
 Best,
